This is not a good eclipse for making plans or attending to detailed paperwork due to lack of concentration. Mishaps are likely in your communications whether in person, in writing or on the internet where misunderstandings could lead to arguments. On the positive side, you have an increased ability to view things through a different perspective, which can lead to original ideas and breakthroughs. Chance encounters with others are possible, but most new friendships will probably be short-lived.
Think twice before making bold statements, and double-check and travel plans. Avoid making spontaneous decisions or agreeing to things on the spur of the moment. So remaining flexible and open-minded is key to dealing with any unexpected events, from your car breaking down to printer jams.

This signals unexpected events and news that are likely to cause anxiety and uncertainty about the future. So keeping an open mind and staying calm and patient is key to dealing with this erratic and unpredictable energy.

Although the fixed star conjunct the Sun does not moderate this erratic energy, it does offer help by giving confidence and courage. Self-control and patience will counter a tendency to overreact and argue when faced with stressful situations.
