The January Eclipses

The period right before New Year’s eve through January has been extremely stressful for many. It is eclipse season- a time when two or three eclipses come in succession. During these times there are often sudden occurrences that require drastic changes of direction. Through no fault of our own we are forced to deal with sometimes outrageous happenings. It is important to remember that these events are forcing us to grow and that the changes are necessary because some area of our life has become stagnant and less productive. Sometimes a person in our life leaves through some unusual circumstance or even their passing.  The point is, it is not your fault, but you are just left handling the situation. What has made the January 5theclipse more difficult is the close proximity of Saturn (limits) and Pluto (transformation). Pluto is the Lord of death so those types of changes where you have to completely let go of a person are often very painful. In the case of the January 5th eclipse, both the Sun and Moon were besieged (surrounded) by Saturn and Pluto.This made it more difficult to move forward because there are intense issues that must be held in place, at least temporarily, so that you can really feel the depth of the problems and come to the correct response. It is best to not react immediately on an eclipse and give yourself time to sort out the issue(s). Often the eclipses fall in opposite signs of the preceding eclipse in the series, but in this case, we are flung into a new mode and sign. The lunar eclipse is now coming up on January 21st at 0° Leo 51’. This means the things that have left your life or may be leaving due to the recent eclipse will be followed by a sudden switch of focus toward something self-directed,self-involved, creative, heart centered that is at a very new or beginning phase (the zero or 1st degree). If either of the eclipses falls on a planet, personal point or angle of your chart, then the emphasis is even more pronounced. It will be as if one chapter closes and you are thrown immediately into the next one without time to hesitate. Do you know where these eclipses fall in your chart? Schedule a reading to get clarity on upcoming decisions related to these areas.

In New York, the full moon eclipse on the 21st falls on the MC/IC axis auguring some new changes within the city and Uranus (shocks, sudden reversals,technological shifts, enlightenment) at its stationery degree in Aries on an angle doubly emphasizes these changes coming in. We may be seeing some shocking events in New York with this lunar eclipse around the 21st that bring sudden  changes we weren’t expecting. What I am hearing now is it is going to be far colder on Monday- in fact 35 degrees colder than it will be on Sunday. There are technologies that can change the weather that haven’t been openly disclosed that may have to do with this. Listen for the high pitched tone the day before. Keep your warm clothes and a heating pad nearby to stay warm- and hope the technological emphasis in the city’s chart won’t mean a power failure!


Final Summer Solar Eclipse ~ New Moon in Leo

Eclipse series come in threes, and we are now  – Aug. 11th, experiencing the 3rd and final of the summer series of eclipses for 2018. Most of the areas in our lives that needed attention for clearing out were likely addressed with the last full moon eclipse that was conjunct the south node. The south node has to do with outworn areas of our lives that we may be holding onto out of habit. Whether you left or lost a job, a pet, a lover or a friend keep on mind the sooner you let go of the person, friend or emotion, the sooner you will release the pain associated with holding onto something that is leaving your life.

Where this Solar eclipse lands in your chart highlights new activities for the coming months. In many cases this eclipse falls in the opposing house from the last eclipse. This will take you in an entirely different direction, and highlights exactly why you had to let go of the dead weight from the last eclipse on July 27th. In the sign Leo is where we look for the joy we hopefully experienced in our childhood in this area. Have you been avoiding this due to responsibilities you no longer need? That’s a good question to ask yourself if you feel stuck between letting go and moving on right now.

In some cases, this eclipse will also expose weaknesses in the house where it occurs. Whether this it manifests as a health issue that must be addressed, a financial emergency or a psychological breakdown or breakthrough, look at the positive side of these occurrences and see that you are being alerted to deal with these issues now before they get worse and out of hand.

A quick note that this eclipse falls on the (correct) Ascendant for the President, and will likely augur an entirely new chapter of his personal effectiveness. He may be letting go of many daily activities that were draining his focus (tweets?) as shown by the recent lunar eclipse and delegating these tasks to others.

The yod to the solar eclipse point in the Solar eclipse chart (see above) augurs an awakening of our collective egos as we watch the developments on the world stage. The truth has never been so hard to come by  with the base of the yod in deceptive Neptune along with Pluto, ruling the masses. As Internet superpowers continue to block alternative media in all areas, it is incumbent upon all to listen to ideas that test the status quo in your personal beliefs and past education, or conditioning as it may be.

1/2 price Eclipse readings by phone are available for both old and new clients for the next week or so and after that they will go away. Contact me here asap to schedule. This will also be my last blog post for a while, as I am going to take advantage of the eclipse energy myself. So enjoy what is left of the summer and stay tuned for some exciting developments.

 

Eclipse Season Summer 2018 Begins

Eclipse season begins with the first of three eclipses on Thursday July 12, 2018 (See chart above.)

The key issues with this eclipse are catharsis and the preliminary phase of reconstruction of some aspect of, or key area of your life.  First is recognition of the process you are dealing with, then letting go, and finally rebuilding. This is likely to apply to the area of your chart where this eclipse falls. It could be an issue of letting go of ego or status in relation to work, relationship, family, finances or anything else. You may have been trying to build up this area for some time as shown by the eclipse opposite Pluto in Capricorn. Capricorn is the sign of the slow building of structures. Pluto is not any fun to deal with – but it does clear out what is unnecessary.

Eclipses of the Sun have to do with your ego, your soul and your sense of centered-ness. It is now time to let go of aspects of this area you may have been building upon that might be taking you slightly off-course. Life provides a series of checks and balances to refine our direction to our most beneficial soul purpose. The eclipse falls in Cancer, so in this case this letting go is part of the process of focusing on a clearer sense of your own purpose in what you personally create or provide to the world and/or to upgrading your own self-nurturing.

Because eclipses can be disorienting when they hit your chart directly, I wanted to get this post up in time for the 1st eclipse.  I will post more in the forthcoming days on the next two eclipses, so stay tuned. As always, get rest and try to wait and not to react to people or surprises that pop up within the first few days of the eclipse. And if you’d like to be personally prepared for the often emotional ups and downs this eclipse and how the next two eclipses align with your chart, contact me for a Special eclipse reading by phone at 1/2 the price of a regular reading.
