Astro-Insights: Over Thursday’s Lunar Eclipse and women with balls

Astro-Insights: Some thoughts on Thursday’s Lunar Eclipse

Tuesday’s lunar eclipse takes the focus slightly away from the current surplus of mutable energy and moves us towards a concentrated dose of fixed Leo/Aquarius energy. A conversation with my son about the Olympics brought home the importance of those ‘who also ran’, the sports persons who will never step up to the medals rostrum and receive the honor of a medal (gold or otherwise). For there to be a top cat (Leo) there have to be many ‘also rans’. The idea of participation, of sharing a goal without having a clearly defined personality outside of the group,  resonates with Aquarius. Now however, with the Moon eclipsed in Aquarius, the focus is very much on the winner, the almost super human achiever. Think Usain Bolt (Sun in Leo) or Michael Phelps (Sun conjunct Mars in watery Cancer).

The Moon relates to us, our most basic needs, our daily habits and routines, our fundamental concerns for family and self. The Moon eclipsed could relate to patterns of behaviour that have been with us for so long they have become part of the furniture. Look to the house where the eclipse falls and do some brainstorming. The focus now is on the Sun i.e. consciousness. You might begin by questioning yourself. Why do I do that? What’s in this for me ? The Sun has the limelight – do you? What might need to change in your perception of yourself that would help to better define who you are?  What specific ideas are holding you back? With the Moon eclipsed – this answer might be related to your tribe – and to the habits of many lifetimes. This lunar eclipse is very useful – because Mars and Saturn – two planets that have featured in all the eclipse horoscopes this year, lunar and solar, are now both heading in the right direction. Sure, these are the two malefics and Mars is now in hot pursuit of Saturn. So what. We can do nothing about paramilitaries, right wing regimes, and general fruit cases with or without guns. So we should keep it simple, personal i.e. Moon based instead. Sagittarians need a goal situated on a future horizon. Find yours. In contrast to the mutable cross, fixed energy allows you an opportunity to get things established and get some real lasting results. Move. Get on and do what needs doing.

Astro-Insights: Some thoughts on Thursday’s Lunar Eclipse

On a mundane note, the Moon relates to the collective, to the people en mass, to the ebb and flow within the collective. When the Moon is eclipsed the lunar and solar energy field is disturbed. This has subtle influence on the planet earth.For example the infrared electromagnetic waves normally emitted by the Moon are absent. The temperature on the lunar surface drops. In other words, change is very literally in the air around us. The Moon will be eclipsed in 25 degs 52 Aquarius and its worth picking out a few horoscopes with the planets in this area, just so we have something to focus on. The USA has the Moon in 27 degs 10 Aquarius, Sibly horoscope. The Sun is a masculine planet, however in a mundane sense it strongly relates to powerful persons, leaders, and nowadays the Sun can just as easily relate to women with balls. On a political level and speaking symbolically you could say the opposition is pretty much wiped out here. Well.. at least more campaign set backs – possibly from the grass roots. Though not on the same scale, surely the response by President Obama (a Leo) to the flooding (very lunar) in Louisiana will be compared to the response of G.W. Bush (lunar ruled Cancer) to hurricane Katrina. The needs of the people and the lot of the people, will be stirred up by this lunar eclipse. The UK has (Capricorn sun ruler) Saturn in 23 degs Leo 22, and with the Sun transiting around this point, the UK has done exceptionally well at the Olympics this year, being currently second on the medal table. Big achievement for what really is a small country. This hasn’t detracted though from the Labour leader fracas. The struggle for the soul of the Labour Party continues.

Astro-Insights: Just before I sign off. The Sun trines Uranus on Tuesday. This is very quirky energy and with Uranus in trail blazing Aries, clearly favours he/she who dares. Venus in Virgo trines Pluto on Thursday which is pretty hands on practical as well. Venus trine Pluto is great energy to harvest your own personal harvest, to reap the rewards of some past labour you have put in. Furthermore, with Mercury in pragmatic Virgo opposite Chiron and inconjunct Uranus on Friday, a leap of faith and a break with convention, might be on the cards.
