What really is a Partial Solar Eclipse? 

A Partial Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun’s disk.

During a partial solar eclipse, the Moon, the Sun and Earth don’t align in a perfectly straight line, and the Moon casts only the outer part of its shadow on Earth. From our perspective, this looks like the Moon has taken a bite out of the Sun. Sometimes, the Moon covers only a tiny part of the Sun’s disk. Other times a partial eclipse looks almost like a total eclipse.

So the influence of this new moon will be felt for the coming six months. This means we need to set our goals straight so we can focus on what’s important.
