Three Eclipses in a Month!

August Lunations

About Eclipses

We are going to have three eclipses (very intense full and new moons) within the next month, beginning today.
  • Today we have an AIR Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 25 Aquarius, bringing an invigorating mental shift.
  • On Sept 1st we have an EARTH New Moon Solar Eclipse at 9 Virgo, which will bring some significant reorganization in our lives.
  • On Sept. 16 we will have a WATER Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 24 Pisces, that will be a more dreamy or spiritual experience.

How this effects you will depend a lot upon which houses (or life areas) these eclipses fall in your natal chart.  For me these eclipses will fall in my 2nd, 9th and 3rd houses.

1) MENTAL SHIFT IN: 2ND FINANCES AND SHARING BALANCE
2) REGORGANIZING: 9TH ASTRACT PHILOSOPHY EXPANSIVE
3) SPIRITUAL EXPANSION: 3RD COMMUNICATION, WRITING, SIBLINGS
“An eclipse is a far more potent lunation. Look to the house the eclipse falls in your natal chart. The affairs of that house will be activated. Does the eclipse fall on a planet in your natal chart? That planet will also be activated. The sign of the eclipse plays a role in the likely events that the eclipse will trigger.
Many people tend to fear eclipses, simply because they often bring about a crisis of sorts that leads to a significant event or change. However, this event or change can be very positive.

Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances. However, we are usually the ones to precipitate or to attract changes because our “inner guides” know that we need it. Human beings are progressive by nature, and although we might stay in situations that are making us miserable for longer than we should, deep down inside we know that change is necessary for growth.”

Three Eclipses this Month!

Today we have a Full Moon Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse at 25 Aquarius. Be sure to look for personal planets around 25 degrees Aquarius (and Leo, Taurus or Scoprio ).  Also look up the houses where the eclipse falls within your chart.

Lunar Eclipse Aquarius

We will have another eclipse on Sept. 1st, a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 9 degrees Virgo.  Be sure to look for personal planets around 9 degrees Virgo (and Pisces, Gemini or Sagittarius).  Also look up the houses where the eclipse falls within your chart.

Setting Your New Moon intention when there is an Eclipse

 
Normally we want to set our intentions for the next month on the New Moon or just after it becomes exact, watching to not do it when the moon is void of course.  When there is an eclipse we want to wait about 48 hours because the energy is intensified.  You may want to wait until we feel more grounded.

And then we will have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse  24 Pisces on Sept. 16th at!   Be sure to look for personal planets around 24 degrees Pisces (and Virgo , Gemini or Sagittarius).  Also look up the houses where the eclipse falls within your chart.

Leos, is your birthday within 5 days of August 18th?  Virgos, is your birthday within 5 days of Sept. 1st, or within 5 days of Sept 16th.
“It’s vital you guard your health if an eclipse falls within five days of your birthday, or if it falls almost exactly opposite your birthday. and If an eclipse falls on your birthday, or within five days of your birthday, the year that follows that particular birthday will be a critical one for you.” Susan Miller

What Sign is the Moon in?

First we can consider the sign that the Moon is in, in general.  The moon changes sign about every 2.5 days, taking a lunar month to traverse the sky and our charts.

When the Moon is in Aquarius

” Attraction to all that is new and unusual, and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal than personal, under this influence. This is a time that promotes social gatherings, dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes. We are open to new methods of doing things and we have our eye on the future. It can be hard to stick to schedules now, as personal freedom is most important to us. The Moon in Aquarius generally favors the following activities: Unusual or radical undertakings, social pursuits, group projects, trying something new, joining a group.”
Air Eclipses: wind storms

  • Aquarius: ideas, insemination, lightening, electricity, don’t get a haircut, ice

When the Moon is in Virgo

“We instinctually gravitate towards practical activities under the influence of a Virgo Moon. In an urge to set things right, we might easily find ourselves re-organizing and rethinking plans. Emotional satisfaction comes from solving problems, making order out of confusion, and helping others. Health matters might come into focus. We notice the smaller parts that make up the whole, and instead of letting nagging details bother us, we might work on ironing them out so that we can feel more confident moving ahead.   The Moon in Virgo generally favors the following activities: Mental pursuits, work activities, services, and routines. Activities that would benefit from tending to details.”
Earth Eclipses: grains, earth/dust storms
  • Virgo: prolitariate, liver, thyroid
Virgo: prolitariate, liver, thyroid
When the Moon is in Pisces
“Your life takes on a kind of mystical quality at the emotional and instinctive levels now. Dreams and illusions, forgiveness, and understanding human frailties: these things arouse deep feelings. The past and the future intermingle, and the barriers between people dissolve – there is the key to the greater psychic and spiritual sensitivity you feel now. “
Water Eclipses: bring water related tragedies or storms
  • Pisces: depression, oceans, lack of boundaries, mysticism, sleepy, meditation

Aquarius Full Moon

What is happening at the lunations?

Every new moon (and full moon) is different because it falls in a different sign.  When the moon is new it is in the same sign as the Sun because, by definition, they are conjunct and the moon is between the earth and the sun.  When the moon is full it is in the opposite sign from the Sun because, by definition, they are the farthest from each other, with the earth between them.

What is happening at a lunar eclipse?

  1. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth’s shadow blocks all the Sun’s light from directly reaching the Moon’s surface. Eclipses of the Moon happen when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned to form an almost or exact straight line.

HOUSES

What houses are the new and full moon eclipses falling in your chart?

So an important thing to consider is the house in your natal chart where the lunation is falling, as well as any planets that might be nearby.

“The job of an eclipse is to shine a glaring ray of truth to the part of your life that is being touched, and truth will likely arrive in a startling way. “ Susan Miller

So you will need to look at your chart.  I recommend pulling it up at http://astro.com (use the free extended charts, natal and transits option) or you can order from me.
Here is my chart showing the Moon conjunct the Sun (new moon), in my 3rd house (and on my tsquare).

Here is my chart showing the Moon opposes the Sun (full moon), in my 9th house (on my Midheaven).
Not sure what all those glyphs (symbols) mean?
So for me, the new moon lunar eclipse fall in my 3rd house, and the full moon solar eclipse falls in my 9th.
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in my 2nd House

Example

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in my Second House
SECOND: A Lunar Eclipse in the second house, you may get a cosmic push to make necessary financial changes in your life. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power–what’s yours and what’s mine. Your comfort zones matter, and now is the time to take care of your own needs without eclipsing the needs of others. A financial settlement, the beginning or end of a particular debt, and other such scenarios can be part of the picture now. – See more at:http://astrologicalcounsel.blogspot.com/2013/11/eclipses_16.html#sthash.WtTP4orn.9lDiEL8p.dpuf
New Moon Solar Eclipse in my 9th House
New Moon Solar Eclipse in my Ninth House
NINTH: The focus is on the development of abstract or intangible thought. Questions of morality, ethics, religious practices, and philosophical issues are addressed in an attempt to develop a personal guide; a foundation and a sense of structure for living life. During Solar Eclipse’s influence, higher education, cultural expansion, and travel experiences play a part in the individual’s exploration for wisdom and truth. – See more at:http://astrologicalcounsel.blogspot.com/2013/11/eclipses_16.html#sthash.WtTP4orn.dpuf 
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in my 3rd House
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in my Third House
THIRD: A Lunar Eclipse in the third house, there may be some sort of drama surrounding communication, modes of transportation, schooling, mobility, neighbors, or siblings. Daily routines can change dramatically. There may be a major event in the life of a sibling. There could be a publishing offer or you might be in a position to promote yourself. Travel or education plans may come to fruition. You might gain an entirely different perspective on a matter.
