Neptune-Mars aspect in astrology besides its well-known interpretations, relating to creative tension, weakness, disillusionment and inability to act, can also have an effect on sleep, dreams, inspiration, and psychic receptivity. Especially since Neptune is in the Sign of Pisces and Mars from Virgo mentally and meticulously explores the abstract realms. 

The Mars opposition Neptune aspect would be in effect from 22 to 26 of August, and Mars will trigger a Kite formation, that aligns Uranus – Neptune and Pluto, joining them with sextiles, while Mars is trine to Uranus and Pluto.

This kite formation be associated with subconscious insights through dreams, sudden inspirations, knowing suddenly that something is this or that with no apparent reason, as well as a tendency toward occultism and experiencing paranormal phenomena.

Pay attention to your dreams, especially if they are very lucid, note them down, and try to decipher their meaning.

The universe is speaking constantly and I am going to tell you a story.

 

Once upon a time, in the small town of Arkham, some curious individuals gathered to explore the mysteries of the subconscious mind and the realms of the unknown. Among them was Dr. Konstantin Raudive, a renowned parapsychologist fascinated by the electronic voice phenomenon (EVP), and a young astrologer named Amelia, who had a deep understanding of the celestial forces.

On a specific August night, as Mars and Neptune aligned in opposition, the energy in the room they were crackled with anticipation as they were conducting their research. Although they were exhausted and weak, the Mars opposition Neptune aspect has ignited the participants’ imaginations and guided their actions.

That night they have stumbled upon a passage from H.P. Lovecraft’s writings about dreams and the subconscious that stated the belief that dreams have the potential to reveal hidden truths and cosmic dimensions that are beyond our everyday perception. Lovecraft’s words resonated deeply with their experiences, reinforcing their belief in the power of the hidden realms.

They knew that this cosmic alignment would enhance their ability to tap into the hidden realms of the mind. Amelia, guided by her astrological insights, led the group in a meditation to open their minds to the whispers of the subconscious. As they delved deeper into their own thoughts, they began to hear faint voices in their heads, like echoes from another dimension. The participants were filled with a sense of both awe and trepidation.

Dr. Raudive, seized the chance and decided to conduct an EVP experiment suggesting that the group should continue to meditate more focused, and he would try to record the voices amidst static background. He set up his recording equipment.

As the participants focused their intentions, they listened intently, hoping to capture the elusive voices from beyond.

To their astonishment, amidst the static and whispers, a voice emerged from the recordings. It whispered, “You are sleeping, you do not want to believe.”

«You are sleeping you do not want to believe», again.

 

The room fell silent, and a chill ran down their spines. It was as if the voice had pierced through the veil of reality, offering a glimpse into the mysteries of the universe.

The Mars opposition Neptune has worked its magic.

It had inspired their determination to explore the unknown and had provided a conduit for the voices from the other side. From that day forward, the group continued their investigations into EVP, drawing upon the power of the planets and the depths of the subconscious. They sought to unravel the secrets of the universe, guided by the enigmatic whispers captured in their recordings.

The tale of their extraordinary exploration into the realms of dreams, inspiration, and the paranormal continued, forever intertwined with the celestial dance of Mars and Neptune.

In a realm where astrology, Lovecraft’s writings, and the mysteries of EVP converged, who knows… you may also embark on a journey that would forever change your understanding of the cosmos and the power of the human mind.

 

Dr. Konstantin Raudive is real person who has the first to conduct research in the EVP area, you may research him.

H.P. Lovecraft is a real person, a writer of fantasy horror.

EVP is a real field of study in parapsychology. You may see the film White Noise, to get an idea.

Neptune is sleeping, dreams and belief.

Are you sleeping or you do want to believe?

The beautiful conjunction of the Sun and Venus takes place on August 13 at 20°28′ in the sign of Leo.

It’s a conjunction of particular importance to your emotional and love life, and it renews, or if you prefer, readjusts the very way you see yourself!

As Venus is retrograde in the Sign of Leo, issues of relationships, the way we express Love, how much we are loved, but also issues of creativity, i.e. how much we like what we do, who we are, where we are, and whether it all aligns with the passion we have within us… are brought to the foreground.

We wonder about what it is that expresses ourselves the most. We want to find some new ways to create a greater income. We wonder if our relationship, our work, or the way we present ourselves is the best. We feel like it’s time to shine again and we know we can.

It’s a time when we better understand the value we have, and what our hearts long for.

The past teaches us, and with Venus retrograde we begin to set our boundaries. What we want from our relationships, what we allow, what we no longer like, and what we really want.

We are re-evaluating to whom we give and how much we are giving. Only those who recognize our value will receive. We also understand better both from whom we are receiving and how much we receive. And we value those more. And all of this is not done out of a sterile and calculating mindset, but instead it is done as a result of how we feel and what our own heart tells us.

Yes, there will be brave decisions made these days, as we will clearly see who, and why, is worthy, and we will choose them to remain close to us.

Those who have cared for us, loved us, treated us sweetly and tenderly, those who until today we may not have understood and appreciated as much as we should have, will “rise” even higher. On the other hand, people who are more concerned with their own glamour, who act selfishly, who do not appreciate the warmth and the things we give them, will “come out” of our frame.

We will see the same thing happening in relation to our creativity, our work, and our partnerships. How we make money, how we can improve our finances, how to do what we really like to do to be Kings in our own Kingdom, to be more in harmony with our emotions.

It is a period of deep understanding of our own worth, that slowly becoming a realization and completely changes the way we see ourselves.

It is an internal change. It is more faith and greater self-confidence which will gradually grow. It is a change within you which will translate over the next few weeks and into early September into new aspirations, new tastes, new preferences, new sense of self! It is a change that will make others see you and treat you differently.

It’s a time to understand your brilliance!

Long Hot Summer

This is a long, hot, and tumultuous summer for your romantic life, because in the middle of Summer Venus will turn retrograde in the sign of Leo and will transit the zodiac backwards before returning direct again in early September.

Before it goes retrograde, as early as mid-June and until July 10th, Venus will be racing behind Mars, approaching him at a distance of four to three degrees, and will be in conjunction to him, but without finally being able to reach him, as Mars will move into the sign of Virgo on the mentioned date, whereas Venus will be slowing down to eventually turn retrograde on July 22nd.

During her retrograde course Venus will make aspects to Neptune, Lilith, Uranus, Chiron and Jupiter, will join Mercury in a conjunction, and most IMPORTANTLY will also make her annual conjunction to the Sun, once again in the Sign of Leo after 8 long years!

She will also form aspects to major Asteroids relating to love, her home, and her reputation, while the Moon’s Nodes will move into the Aries – Libra Axis with Mars taking the lead in who now has the upper hand in love!

The transition from the Taurus – Scorpio axis to the Aries – Libra axis changes the polarity of male and female in terms of the ruling planet of the North Node and so makes the Masculine energy to now having the upper hand in romantic matters… at least for as long as Venus is retrograde, if not longer.

Erotic nostalgia, platonic and unrequited love, passion and attraction, dilemmas that will test relationships, messages, returns from the past, sudden encounters, temptations and infatuations, along with important revisions about whether we want to stay in existing relationships. and even a final verdict after the test of time, are some of the themes you will experience in your emotions, depending on whether you have planets and which of the degrees Venus’ path activates.

We also have… an ambiguous full moon full of love opportunities coming up on July 3. A karmic and pivotal New Moon on July 17. A full moon of exuberance in fun with tendencies towards freedom and independence on the first day of August. And lastly a romantic and erotic full moon with twists and turns and sudden encounters on August 16!

These Moons together with all that I mentioned earlier, make this a long, hot, and exciting summer.

The most favoured signs will of course be Leos and Aries, while significant developments are expected for Sagittarius, Capricorn, Taurus, and Aquarius Signs.

It will be an intense summer with situations that will prove to be very important or even which will mark a change of course and bring a big change in your emotional life, if you have personal planets at 12°, 20° or 28° degrees of Leo.

Find out how all of the above will affect you on a personal level by having a personal consultation with me, and in anticipation of major developments…

… I wish to everyone within this complicated summer planetary backdrop that lies ahead of us, to experience what you truly deserve for the very best, and to have such an experience that will be truly helpful for your evolution!

VENUS MARS CYCLE 2023

HOW THEY AFFECT YOU WHETHER  YOU ARE SINGLE,

IN A RELATIONSHIP, OR WANT TO RECONNECT!

An important and very special sextile aspect between Venus and Mars occurs on March 11, 2023.

Venus is the archetype of beauty, of what we like, how likeable we feel and also how much we are liked. Mars is the libido of desire, lust and masculine principle and has opportunities with this meeting as Mars claims her, wants her and is ready to take the initiative to make her his.

An aspect of erotic passion but also a creative aspect since harmony is combined with action and thus the creation is born as the fruit of the union of the two sexual archetypes Venus and Mars.

How wonderful you will remark so it is possible to meet someone or someone, to feel the attraction or to indulge in the charm that someone or someone exerts on us.

 

YES… but not ONLY THOSE and not THAT EXACTLY…

Looking synthetically and in its entirety at how the cycle of the two planets moves I notice some very specific characteristics.

While Mars and Venus formed aspects to each other six times(!) in 2022, their sextile on March 11 will be their third in a row in 2023… and their next aspect will again be a sextile but… almost a year(!) from today and specifically on February 22, 2024!

What does this mean?

And why is it happening…?

 

Aside from the fact that the weeks just before and after Valentine’s Day in 2024 will be erotic, in the present and for 2023 it means that until then… the two planets will NOT come into an exact Ptolemaic aspect.

This is because as Venus will begin to approach Mars to conjunction, it will reach within five degrees of Mars in early July when both planets will be in Leo, and there she will once again begin to move away from him as Mars will gain speed while Venus will instead further reduce hers, until she turns retrograde on July 22, 2023.

So it’s as if she is turning her back on him, as if she is hesitant to go, as if she is at that time having second thoughts or just wants to take her time to better assess the situation.

But she doesn’t let him but rather takes her time, does her re-calculation and after turning direct she begins to form a prolonged sextile with him between about September 10th and October 10th 2023.

A sextile which will be NEARLY formed as the two planets approach within 1 degree of each other, but which will NOT FINALLY be EXACT, until four more months will pass and we arrive on February 22, 2024!

It’s as if the two lovers want to be together, or are already together, just that something is still not working the way they want it to, something is not exactly the way Venus wants it to be, or something is not the way Mars wants it to be.

What does it all mean?

SINGLE ONES
New relationships that you make in the coming weeks have a very good chance of developing but will go through a period of revision in the summer before finally smoothing out gradually in September-October.

IN A RELATIONSHIP
If you are considering the next step this can be taken, just be prepared for “ups and downs” until you both feel equally prepared/ready. Generally this is a time when the relationship will deepen further after first going through a period of necessary work on yourselves.

IF YOU WANT TO RECONNECT
For those of you who have broken up and are considering a reunion the next few days through March 16 are ideal. After that things get more difficult until July when Venus retrograde will bring possibilities again.


NOTE: Naturally all of the above are general and are based only on the Venus/Mars cycle which I have presented, and do NOT take into account your personal horoscope in which there will be various other astrological factors, some positive and some negative, which should be studied, especially since we are talking about a movement between Venus and Mars which unfolds over a period of several months.

But… you get the general idea!

SEPTEMBER 29-30, 2021: MOON IN LAST QUARTER, VENUS TRINE NEPTUNE, SUN TRINE SATURN

By astrologer, Andrew Ifandis

Thoughts, reviews and re-evaluations around our relationships and how we relate, as Mercury is retrograde in Libra.

This is a time of introspection, and as the Moon is in her last quarter in the sign of Cancer, it is an inner process that makes us see clearly our needs for companionship.

The needs are those of domestic warmth. It is pampering and our deep longing to belong. To share and feel safe. Indulge in caresses and love without limits. Transcend your needs, share your insecurities.

Relationships are like little babies who need to be cared for. It is important to show affection to your loved ones. Apologize, forgive. Love transcends ego, and romance overflows. Love awakens the child in us.

Share emotion without it making you lose your confidence. Take responsibility. Your desires must be just and aimed at harmony. Consistency in giving, when combined with tenderness, brings happiness.

This is the lesson of the days.

THE PERFECT STORM !! - The planetary scene from September 21 to October 20, 2020


THE PERFECT STORM !! – The planetary scene from September the 21th to October 20th

By astrologer, Andrew Ifandis

 

“Perfect Storm” is a term from meteorology used to describe a combination of rare and adverse events that all together contribute to the aggravation of an already difficult weather situation.

Unfortunately, this is the term that describes the planetary scene of these last days and up until October the 20th, a period within the intensity of this difficult and pivotal year 2020, practically peaks.

Today, in the following hours, and in the following days, a series of difficult aspects on the Cross of the Cardinal Signs culminates in numbness, tension, anxiety and worries. It is a series of aspects that mainly affect the third decan of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), but also all of us without exception, since somewhere at some point in our Horoscope, the storm is touching us, some of us more and some others less.

Mercury has squared to Pluto three days before, on September the 21st , and then squared to Saturn yesterday, and the clouds of doubt, difficulty in communication and pessimism began to gather. The Moon today in a square with the Sun in Libra reminds us how vulnerable relationships are, as our wants and needs are pressed by the difficult circumstances.

Mercury has come in conflict with Mars less two hours before, as the discomfort and indignation from the retrogradation of the second, has already begun to accumulate.

A short break and the storm thickens dangerously as Mars Rx forms a square to Saturn on September the 29th  while the Sun on the same day, in opposition to Chiron, paints the clouds with rosy shades reminiscent of wounds that are about to open.

The Full Moon on October the 2nd peaks the emotions and opens the wounds, and Mercury on October the 8th, in its opposition to Uranus, opens the bag of Aeolus bringing confusion and nervousness.

The climax comes as, on October the 9th, Mars is forming a tremendous square to Pluto, a square in the very same degree where Saturn and Pluto met on January 12, 2020, inaugurating this shocking year, and it is now that the storm is raging.

The Sun from October the 10th until October the 18th, will in turn oppose Mars Rx in Aries, and then will form two squares, the first with Pluto and the later with Saturn, while between these two squares we shall have the very difficult New Moon on the 16th of the month.

The last thunderbolts will be heard in crescendo as Mars will make a final square to Jupiter on October 19th , and from 20 of October onwards, Venus in successive triangles to Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn, will begin to somewhat help relieve the barometric low.


Ι have said, since the beginning of the year, that 2020 is pressure and patience. It is a pivotal year where only those who can withstand the pressures, and understand the lessons, as well as the need to transform deep-rooted and structural behaviors, habits and elements that defined them until today, only those will be able to emerge victorious.

And they will emerge victorious having formed from the pressure, a small diamond in the core of their existence. Diamond: a word I like to use, as a symbol of the crystalline core, of clear and pristine perception and intention, and the sheer adamant will, all of which are needed to cope and endure the difficult conditions ahead.

Of course, during this storm that peaks in the following days, there exist a few moments of sunshine or moderated intensity, from aspects that act as beacons on the horizon, but the essence remains that: THIS FOLLOWING PERIOD IS WHEN THIS DIFFICULT YEAR TOPS.

It is a period that requires patience, perseverance, responsibility. It requires calmness, vision, and to be in touch with our center. A clear mind. Now is the time that above all, FAITH in our powers, but also in the wisdom of the Universe, and the grace of the Creator that will guard us. Someone up there knows better than you… about you. Do not forget this.

This is what I had to say to you, not because I want to discourage you, but instead because I want to remind you that you can, that you will overcome, that you will endure, that you will emerge victorious and that after any storm… calm and serenity always come.

SATURN STATIONS DIRECT IN CAPRICORN – 18 SEPTEMBER 2019

Sharing is caring:


Saturn stations direct in Capricorn on September the 18th 2019 after a long period of being retrograde since April 30th 2019. Saturn will remain direct for eight months, and in its direct motion that will last until the 11th of May 2020, it will transit the Sign of Capricorn from 13°55′ up to the end of the Sign. It will then enter the Sign of Aquarius and move up to 01°57′  where it will turn retrograde once more.

Saturn is the planet of matter, reality, boundaries and difficulties. It is the planet of patience and reward for our labors. It brings hardships but also bestows wisdom. It recycles the karmic time, bringing us again and again in front of persons or situations, until we do comprehend our lesson and mature.

During the period of Saturn’s retrograde motion, we may have been dealing with issues related to:

  • How do we set our limits towards others? Is it that we may not do it, and as a consequence it is us that we take on their responsibilities?
  • Are there persons who make us sad with their behavior precisely because we have not make them understand our boundaries and up to where certain things are allowed?
  • On the other hand, are we the ones who restrict and oppress others because we may be rigid in our views or very strict?
  • Is social and professional recognition so important that we are to be deprived of leisure and joy for their sake?
  • Why don’t we relax and let go in the flow of things instead of trying to organize and control everything?

The period where Saturn is retrograde is characteristic for its strong learning and evolutionary influence and part of this process is to also come to grips with our fears. Fear is often experienced as a paralyzed feeling that cancels our every choice and imprisons us emotionally. In reality, our fears are the psychological expression of the limitations we experience in our everyday life.


But if we think about it, these fears are the result of limitations and difficulties that we ourselves have placed upon us, precisely because in the past, we had not dared to set our limits and so other people and situations imposed their own on us, so now we only have few or no other choices at all.


This very awareness is redeeming and part of the inner process of re-defining boundaries and limits towards others, against situations and most importantly in ourselves.

With Saturn’s direct motion, all the previous considerations have been completed and a new period begins in which the above ferments are maturing within us, and we gradually start to practically apply what we have learned.

  • We reshape our boundaries towards others.
  • We become more confident about ourselves and our aspirations.
  • We face any difficulties with more rigor and with greater patience.
  • We achieve our goals by working more efficiently and in an organized manner.
  • We do not labor or strive and more importantly we do not oppress others if we have in the past.

At the karmic level, the Saturn Rx endoscopic process has accomplished its purpose and our “lesson” has been perceived.


Saturn’s direct motion through Capricorn, the sign of patience, work duty and responsibility brings truth and maturation allowing us to move forward for the next period, until May the 11th 2020, when Saturn will turn once more retrograde so us to repeat the lessons.

In the chart of his station, Saturn makes a sextile to Neptune in Pisces and is in a close conjunction with the South Node. Moon is making a trine aspect to Saturn while Mars is leaving with a separating trine.

Having absorbed the lessons of the retrograde motion, now it’s the time to:

  • Face our responsibilities (Saturn in Capricorn)
  • Work on the opportunities that are now present to make our dreams come true, starting with a realistic basis and with faith in our abilities. (Saturn sextile Neptune)
  • Exploit the wisdom and the lessons learned during the retrograde period.
  • Combine practical insight with disciplined ambition and make a desired career move (Mars trine Saturn)
  • Understand how can we better ourselves, by slow patience and emotional strength. The need is to turn to the basics, go with the flow and release all the burden of our karmic past. (Moon in Taurus trine Saturn in Capricorn)

VENUS RETROGRADE IN SCORPIO 2018


Venus the planet of Love and Beauty will be retrograde, initially within the Sign of Scorpio and later on towards the end of its retrograde motion, within the Sign of Libra, affecting Scorpio, Taurus, Leo and Aquarius Signs that are born in the first decan, as well as Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn Signs that are born in the last days of their Sign.

The Aesthetics of Retrograde

Andy Warhol, in his painting “Details of Renaissance Paintings, Botticelli, Birth of Venus”, is re-visiting Botticelli’s Venus and re-paints her with pop aesthetics in order to comment on the commercialization of the ideal of Love, the superficiality of being vain and to make the viewer stop and ponder on the notions of “relating” and “beauty”.

That is exactly what Planet Venus is callings us to do while in its retrograde period. It triggers a process of re-evaluation of our own self-worth, our own internal beauty. We are called to re-assess the expectations we have from others and at the same time to see how it is that we ourselves relate.

Venus, the planet of Love is going to turn retrograde on October the 5th from 10°50’ degrees of Scorpio.

During her retrograde course Venus will appear to move backwards in the night sky, and shall gradually retreat within the sign of Libra on November the 1st. There its retrograde motion will continue until November the 16th when it will finally station direct at 25°15’ of the Libra Sign, before moving direct again.

This is a two thirds journey of backtracking in Scorpio and one third in Libra.

Within Scorpio Venus expresses with the deepest of feelings and fixates on intense pleasure. It demands core bonding with other persons, infuses romance with sex and our connections with deep meaning.

For the period that Venus will be retrograde within the Scorpio, expressions of love will be mostly introvert and will be intrigued by Mars male assertion, Mars being the ruling planet of Scorpio in traditional Astrology.


Venus retrograde in Scorpio is

the smoldering desire of a subdued and submissive romanticism.


Only when the planet enters Libra the feeling will change. Venus will still need to belong but will adopt a lighter mentality in the process of re-evaluating how she relates, seeking more balance in relationships and now capable of seeing the other side.

 

The Karmic Effect

The very symbolism of Venus moving backwards means that a person from the past may re-appear. If this is the case, it only happens for a reason.

We must “remember” the relationship we have had with this person in the past, what it meant then and what it means now, for our present and for any existing relations or commitments.

We are called to redefine this relation with the past person in a clear and karmic – free way.

 

Venus in Retrospective Mood

During this forty days Venus retrograde period we turn inwards and wonder:

  • What is that we want from a relationship and from our partner?
  • Do we want to be in a relationship just only for the sake of not being alone?
  • Which are the motivations and our deepest desires?
  • Can we strip away layers of jealousy or control and reach again down to the core of the feelings?
  • Is our relationship superficial, pop and “appearances-only”, lacking meaningful deepest sharing?
  • Are we appreciated as much as we deserve?
  • Do we re-return appreciation and value our partner?

The very nature of these questions, whether we are in a relationship or not, concerns first and most to ourselves and while it mainly relates to love relations it also touches, one to one partnerships, business relations and our socializing in general.

All these questions is a necessary part in this process of introspection that clears out situations, makes us feel better with ourselves and prepares us or a more sociable period when Venus will be again direct.

SATURN STATIONS DIRECT IN CAPRICORN

SATURN STATIONS DIRECT IN CAPRICORN – 6 SEPTEMBER 2018

Sharing is caring:

SATURN STATIONS DIRECT IN CAPRICORN


Saturn stations direct in Capricorn on September the 6th 2018 after a long period of being retrograde since April 17th 2018. Saturn will remain direct for eight months, and in its direct motion that will last until the 30th of April 2019, it will transit the first two decans of the Sign of Capricorn.

Saturn is the planet of matter, reality, boundaries and difficulties. It is the planet of patience and reward for our labors. It brings hardships but also bestows wisdom. It recycles the karmic time, bringing us again and again in front of persons or situations, until we do comprehend our lesson and mature.

During the period of Saturn’s retrograde motion, we may have been dealing with issues related to:

  • How do we set our limits towards others? Is it that we may not do it, and as a consequence it is us that we take on their responsibilities?
  • Are there persons who make us sad with their behavior precisely because we have not make them understand our boundaries and up to where certain things are allowed?
  • On the other hand, are we the ones who restrict and oppress others because we may be rigid in our views or very strict?
  • Is social and professional recognition so important that we are to be deprived of leisure and joy for their sake?
  • Why don’t we relax and let go in the flow of things instead of trying to organize and control everything?

The period where Saturn is retrograde is characteristic for its strong learning and evolutionary influence and part of this process is to also come to grips with our fears. Fear is often experienced as a paralyzed feeling that cancels our every choice and imprisons us emotionally. In reality, our fears are the psychological expression of the limitations we experience in our everyday life.

But if we think about it, these fears are the result of limitations and difficulties that we ourselves have placed upon us, precisely because in the past, we had not dared to set our limits and so other people and situations imposed their own on us, so now we only have few or no other choices at all.

This very awareness is redeeming and part of the inner process of re-defining boundaries and limits towards others, against situations and most importantly in ourselves.

With Saturn’s direct motion, all the previous considerations have been completed and a new period begins in which the above ferments are maturing within us, and we gradually start to practically apply what we have learned.

  • We reshape our boundaries towards others.
  • We become more confident about ourselves and our aspirations.
  • We face any difficulties with more rigor and with greater patience.
  • We achieve our goals by working more efficiently and in an organized manner.
  • We do not labor or strive and more importantly we do not oppress others if we have in the past.

At the karmic level, the Saturn Rx endoscopic process has accomplished its purpose and our “lesson” has been perceived.


Saturn’s direct motion through Capricorn, the sign of patience, work duty and responsibility brings truth and maturation allowing us to move forward for the next period, until April the 30th 2019, when Saturn will turn once more retrograde so us to repeat the lessons.

In the chart of his station, Saturn makes two harmonious trine aspects with Uranus in Taurus and Mercury in Virgo forming a Grand Earth Trine. Having absorbed the lessons of the retrograde motion, now it’s the time to:

  • Face our responsibilities (Saturn in Capricorn)
  • Allow for gradual change in our live with a responsible manner (Saturn trine Uranus)
  • Exploit the wisdom and the lessons learned during the retrograde period (Saturn trine Mercury)
  • Combine practical insight with disciplined ambition and make a desired career move (Saturn trine Uranus)
  • Understand where can better ourselves, through low toned patience and make this our new strategy (permanent thinking mode) for the next period. (Mercury in Virgo trine Saturn in Capricorn)

LUNAR ECLIPSE 27 JULY 2018

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS – 27 JULY 2018: Long Hot Summer – Part Two

Sharing is caring:

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS – 27 JULY 2018

This summer is marked by three eclipses and many planets being retrograde during the eclipse season. The combination of these astrological factors is something that is relatively rare and it shapes an unpredictable, dynamic and hot landscape.


This eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Fixed Cross (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio) and who are born between July 25 – 29, October 25 – 29, January 22 – 26 and April 22 – 26.  Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 01° – 06° degrees of these Signs.


PERSONAL ECLIPSE READING

 

Long Hot Summer – Part Two

The Lunar Eclipse of July 27th is the second of the three eclipses of this summer’s eclipse season. It occurs in the Sign of Aquarius and succeeds the Solar Eclipse in Cancer while it is to be followed by yet another Solar Eclipse in Leo.

In a sense, this eclipse raises the volume of the already loud Solar Eclipse in Cancer and becomes our emotional response to the events that have started to manifest. Under this Full Moon that is eclipsed, emotions are very, very tense.

An example that can demonstrate how this eclipse may work, if seen as a pair with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer, is:

 

Awareness of crisis in friendships or at home (triggered by the Solar Eclipse of July), heightens to overreaction and emotional outbursts that eventually affect our relations.

This lasts until at least the upcoming solar eclipse in Leo when we may find the courtly demeanour to talk things over.

 


The Lunar Eclipse of 27th of July takes place in Aquarius and the Moon, when is in this Sign, becomes detached and less emotional.

Combine these qualities with this particular eclipse’s conjunction of the Moon with the volatile Mars that is also in Aquarius, and unpredictability and tactless behaviour is something we cannot easily avoid.

With Aquarius Moon we may not be emotional in the sense of displaying passion or drama, but beware because under this eclipse, Aquarian cold-hearted and fixed emotional responses may prove more dangerous than the drama of a Fire Sign or the pathos of a Water Sign, and result in the breaking up of relationships and friendships.

I wrote some lines above that this second in a row eclipse, raises the volume.

One day before this Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, Mercury has turned retrograde in Leo, adding one more retrograde planet in the mix. This means that misunderstandings that evolve drama may appear.

So either misunderstandings and drama or detached emotional coldness that may cut us off from important others. Are these really our only options?

 

The landscape is rocky

This Lunar Eclipse is characterized, unfortunately, by two very difficult astrological factors, since Mars retrograde is involved with the two Lights and a T-Square pattern is formed between Uranus, Mars and the eclipse.


Mars has being retrograde during the last month. The tension has reached a critical point. If we have done our homework and have wisely assessed what is worth fighting for, then a healthy outlet for the Mars explosive energy may be found


 

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS – 27 JULY 2018

 

Mars Invictus – The Mars effect is strong in this eclipse

Take a look at the sky on the night of the eclipse. A little below the Moon you will see a glowing orange-red dot, that is Mars.

The planet is very close to the Earth as this is one of the closest Mars perihelic oppositions, with Mars brightness “around the time Earth sweeps between Mars and the sun outshining Jupiter by some 1.8 times”.

The exact opposition of Mars with the Sun occurs on July 27th  and coincides with the eclipse. Astrologically this means that the planet is already retrograde and that on the very day of the eclipse its energy will be felt more strongly, since it will be the most close to the Earth.

Mars is in the Sign of Aquarius, so any inner tension that is building may very well relate to how we assert our individuality. Mars is also conjunct the South Node, so we will feel the planet’s character in its raw manner, rather than experiencing a more refined expression of it.

Another factor that gives strength to Mars in this eclipse, is that the planet is also Out of Bounds from the 7th of July until the 27th of September, roaming high above the ecliptic.

This means UNPREDICTABLE behaviour and this Out of Bounds movement peaks between 14th August and 19th of August, when Mars will reach an astounding declination of 26°29’ South of the ecliptic!

  

The Mars – Uranus – Eclipse T-Square

Another difficult aspect that occurs with this eclipse is the square between Mars and Uranus that peaks on August the 2nd.

Mars already turbo charged by all the factors I have mentioned, is meeting electric Uranus in a tense aspect that has eruptive qualities.

And as if this is not enough, all this energy is falling upon the Moon and the Sun, with Mars conjunct the Moon and opposition to the Sun, and Uranus in a square aspect to all players.


What happens with this particular eclipse is that Mars is simultaneously having multiple astrological qualities that make the planet express its aggressive nature to the most.


So…

What is IMPPORTANT during this eclipse

  • Choose what is worth fighting for.
  • Swallow our pride especially when quarrels or misunderstandings erupt.
  • Try to be flexible. All the charged energy that the eclipse is having is expressed in fixed signs and as a result make us immovable and stubborn.
  • Ease out. Release the tension. Find ways for an outlet of all pent-up emotions because it is very easy they suddenly erupt.
  • Remember that irritability is a part of the whole equation. We cannot avoid it. We must patiently accept it and wait until it passes.
  • Avoid contradiction and reactionary behavior.
  • Show affection and love and not become cold, objective, harsh and tactless.
  • We are very cautious to avoid injuries and minor accidents.

 

Let the retrograde planets work in our favor

This is the most difficult eclipse of this long, hot summer and occurs within an environment of five planets being retrograde (Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto).

Introspective work and re-evaluation to all areas pertaining to the retrograde planets will be of great help.

To tap into the energy of the Saturn trine Uranus aspect that lasts all summer, will be beneficial also.

 

This is hot summer days and long summer nights… One more eclipse to go.
