The effect of solar eclipse is generational rather than individual. The effect depends on the conditions of the solar eclipse.
This eclipse is at the last degree of tropical Cancer. Its length, over six minutes, is the longest of this century. It will be seen over India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and Shanghai. Its coverage is over 15,000 km across Asia to the South Pacific ocean with many millions of people living there.
I have done a little research on this solar eclipse. This particular eclipse belongs to the Saros series known as Saros Cycle 11 South. Every 18 years a Saros series will produce a solar eclipse. There are about 18-20 series active at any single time hence we will hear news about solar eclipse very often, at least 2 solar eclipses per year.
Looking at the original chart of the 1st eclipse in the Saros Cycle 11 South (reference Bernadette Brady, this Saros cycle began on 14 June 1360 at the South Pole) will gain insight into the effect of the eclipses of the series.
Bernadette delineated this series as ‘concerned with the need to make sudden reform’. Old ideas will fail and new systems will be required. With Mercury, the messenger, moving to sit right into the Manger (cluster of fixed stars in Cancer), this will be a period of rapid changes in the global situation. This is a time to dare to think of new pathways, a time to take that small step which can become a great leap forward. Bernadette hence advised that we could keep an eye globally this month on the small voice, the minute idea that has a unique angle to world problem. This is the time of birth of an idea globally (as well as in one’s own life).
Sadly it is not a positive sign for countries seeing the eclipse over the coming years into the mid 2010s.
With combination of other planetary configurations in the coming years (eg. the 7 exact Uranus-Pluto squares between 2012-2015), these regions in Asia will be affected by a series of crisis from economical to political to bad weather conditions such as earthquakes, large storms and severe droughts.
