LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SAGITTARIUS – 5 JUNE 2020: Concealed Feelings – The Temporary Mask

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SAGITTARIUS 5 JUNE 2020


The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Mutable Cross (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces), and especially to those born between March 3 – 7, June 3 – 7, September 5 – 9, and December 4 – 8. This eclipse is also important to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 13° – 17° degrees of the above Signs.


We are now entering the era of eclipses …

The hands of the Cosmic clock continue to turn on their perpetual motion, and it is within this period, that begins with the Lunar Eclipse on June 5th, culminates with the Solar Eclipse on June 21st, and ends with the Lunar Eclipse on July 5th, where the clock will be heard striking loudly three times.

It has been a pivotal and pressing year 2020, for which I have talked to you about since the end of last year. It is a 2020 that is characterized by six (6) !! eclipses, and the period in which we are about to enter, is the culmination of the year, with three consecutive and significant eclipses and up to five (5) !! simultaneously planets being retrograde.

It is a period characterized by revisions and tension, during which, with each stroke of the cosmic clock, our course becomes either the more or the less difficult, depending on our reactions and the decisions we are called to make.

The June the 5th Eclipse as part of the triad of eclipses

The Lunar Eclipse of June 5th is the first of three consecutive eclipses in this Summer. It takes place in the Sagittarius Sign, and is followed by a Solar Eclipse in Cancer and a Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn.

This first eclipse affects relationships and collaborations and if we see it in combination with the next two, it prepares us and sets the frame for what is to follow.

It is with this eclipse that the emotional tension is building up to the events that the Solar Eclipse that follows will bring, and in a continuation of those events further emotional responses will come out resulting in final decisions, with the third and final eclipse.

This eclipse is also the first of a series of eclipses on the Gemini – Sagittarius Axis. This series will continue to occur on this Axis after the Summer, from November 2020 and for the next year and a half until December 2021, when the eclipses on the Gemini – Sagittarius will be over.

An example of how this eclipse may work along with the two eclipses that follow on the Cancer – Capricorn Axis, is influences relating to:

How do we feel about where our expansion lies?

What is our personal truth?

and how can this truth be communicated? (Gemini-Sagittarius Axis).

It is a series of eclipses that potentially cause moral dilemmas and concerns, resulting in revisions and rethinking for issues relating to our professional aspirations and our family. (Cancer – Capricorn axis).

Under the combined energy of these eclipses, we wonder, whether our vision and our enthusiasm for a change towards a new truth of existence, is at the same time advocating that we will finally feel safe in this new destination that we yearn for.

In which house? In what job? Which person will be the one who will take care of us and we will take care of also? What are the responsibilities that we are willing to shoulder, before this is done, as well as afterwards?

 

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SAGITTARIUS – JUNE 5, 2020

The Eclipse takes place at 15°34′ of the Sagittarius Sign and is mainly characterized by the following astrological features:

  • The great planets Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are retrograde in the Capricorn Sign.
  • Venus is also retrograde in the Gemini Sign and is actively involved in the eclipse.
  • Mars is in a tight square aspect to the two Lights.

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SAGITTARIUS 5 JUNE 2020

Let us feel for a while the eclipse chart…

The eclipse takes place with the Moon in Sagittarius, thus emphasizing issues related to education, travel, teaching, philosophy. It strongly brings forth issues of how we perceive things and what is our world-view, relating to our expansion, our development and our faith.

It is an eclipse, that after the last events and the days of Saturn-Pluto’s quarantine, awakens in all of us the need to travel and of sunsets on distant horizons.

Awakes our nostalgia for a lost carelessness…


It is our longing for self-expression with Truth.


However, this longing is overshadowed by the practical issues brought about as social distancing still applies.

Whom to relate with and whom to touch? (Venus Retrograde in Gemini).

“In a context of hyper-information and info-pandemic, and the prevailing logic of the media and the social media (Sun in Gemini), just after the Saturn-Pluto lock-down, we inevitably feel that we are not allowed to feel excitement, to travel and feel carefree (Moon in Sagittarius)….A latent fear is pervasive for what is to come, and we don’t know what to believe to be true.”

The above sentence best describes the combined influence of the retrogrades, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto on our psycho-synthesis, as it is shaped by the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.

A longing for the true and for carelessness that does not take place as a series of revisions have inwardly begun.

Revisions of what is ultimately essential and what benefits us, revisions of where our boundaries are, and revisions of our deepest desires.

Let’s not forget that Fear begins where the boundaries we set against others and situations dissolve.

Think about it…

and think also, that during the past days none of us has been able to set our own limits, but instead has humbly followed state, and social responsibility directives (Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn), but at the expense of his own self-expression, resulting now… in deeper desires and psychological processes to be stirred.

Am I worth? and how much?

Should I be socially active and how much?

Even finding yourself wondering how beautiful you look with the protective mask over your mouth is a new and unprecedented aesthetic issue (Venus retrograde to Gemini).


This Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius invites us externally to want to make a long journey but ultimately causes an inner journey through which the perceptions we’re having about ourselves, the value we give and receive, and what is that our soul really longs, are redefined.


The intensity of the eclipse and the revisions caused by the retrograde planets are activated even more by the exact square that Mars makes to the Sun and Moon.

Mars in Pisces square to the Sun in Gemini: We want to act on the basis of an ideal. We want to confirm our ego ten times more than necessary, resulting in an outburst of energy and aggression with verbal expressions.

Mars in Pisces square to the Moon in Sagittarius: Emotions boil. Victimization that results from repressed but also hidden emotions. Inaction and lack of enthusiasm.

Both, Mars’ position in Pisces engaged with the Lights, and its applying conjunction to Neptune, that is at 20° Pisces, speak only of psychological tension that arises as a result of the unattainable of our desires

The Mars-Neptune meeting in Pisces is the charm of the dreamer who deceitfully ignites the emotions and demands action here and now, pushed by the T-Square that Mars makes to the two lights.

But to act is not favored, since the landscape is deceptive, and any step forward is passive, helpless, and weak.

No. We must not make decisions now because our information is partial, and our emotions are tense and affected. We need to take advantage of the time and psychological stirring that this eclipse creates, and to react as and when, is appropriate.

The only positive outcome for the intensity of this Lunar eclipse in Sagittarius is the sextile aspect formed by Mercury at 09°05‘of Cancer to Uranus at 08°47′ of Taurus.

Shortly before turning retrograde, Mercury with this aspect aids as long as we think outside the norm and outside the social new norm. It calls us to use our intuition but also to turn again to the experiences of the past and that which made us feel safe. The Past which we will soon visit mentally, with the retrogradation of Mercury in Cancer, can be used as a guide on how to shape our choices in the days to come.

The Mercury – Uranus sextile is an aspect that will make things easier for Water Signs (Cancers, Pisces and Scorpios), as well as Taurus and Virgo, born at the end of the first decan.

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SAGITTARIUS 5 JUNE 2020

Summary of the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius

For Mutable Signs, those born in the middle of the second decan, but also for Signs born in the middle of the second decan and which belong to the element of Fire or Air, this eclipse needs special attention, since they will feel it even more intensely.

Those of you who belong to the above Signs are likely to experience:

  • Emotional Instability
  • Fluctuating Emotions
  • Frustrations – Deceits in emotional and financial matters
  • Anger and conflict in relationships or collaborations
  • Feelings of boredom
  • Revelations of secrets that will lead to conflicts in your important relationships

Especially for Gemini, Libra and Aquarius Signs, or those of you who have planets or points in your Horoscope close to the 12° of Gemini or Sagittarius, this eclipse can bring back love stories from the past that will upset you.

EPILOGUE

The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius causes feeling of nostalgia and the need for carelessness. It is an eclipse that simply seeks to reveal to us our personal truth after a difficult period of pressure, fear and confinement. However, it requires special attention because of idealizations and delusions still lingering, and does not favor immediate action.

As the first stroke of the cosmic clock sounds for all of us, what we need to keep in mind is:

  • We are developing a new understanding of what we are looking for, from existing relationships and partnerships.
  • We remain intuitively inactive, as self-delusion & idealizations do not favor immediate action.
  • We pay special attention to verbal confrontations and attacks that may provoke quarrels or separations.
  • We do not blindly invest in a new relationship, but we listen to our intuition
  • Relationships that begin now can have a bitter end
  • We take care of our finances.

It is an eclipse that, like the mask we wore or continue to wear on our face for protection, invites us to stay hidden for a while longer, without immediately expressing our feelings, tense as they are, because there is risk of conflict or misjudgment.

The mask is necessary, but it is temporary.


Pay special attention to the Astrological Houses that the eclipse activates in your personal horoscope, because in the days just before and shortly after the eclipse occurs, issues related to these Houses will come to the fore along with information that will help you and reveal to you higher truths.

About yourself and others.

WUHAN VIRUS ASTROLOGY - The astrological factors behind the epidemic

CORONAVIRUS ASTROLOGY – The astrological factors behind the epidemic

CORONAVIRUS ASTROLOGY - The astrological factors behind the epidemic


The History of the City and the first days of the Virus Outbreak

We are in China in the midst of a civil war.

It is mid-December 1926, where most of the central executive commissioners of the Nationalist Government of China and the national government commissioners arrive in the present-day Wuhan region. There they convene the interim conference of the central executive commissioners and national government commissioners.

The conference decides that from 1 January 1927 the cities of Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang are to be combined into a new single city, today’s Wuhan.

We are back in the present day.

In this East China city, a new fatal virus, 2019-nCoV, or “Wuhan virus”, is being reported for the first time in the last days of 2019, with the first occurrence being recorded on December 8, 2019, and the official update to the World Health Organization for the virus to happen on 31st December 2019.

The continuing increase in casualties and the severity of the virus make the authorities decide to put the city in quarantine on January 23, 2020.

 

The Astrology of the Wuhan City in the days of the Virus Outbreak

The city’s natal chart, the transits of the past months, and the Wuhan City’s Solar Return are quite revealing in their astrological symbolism.

CORONAVIRUS ASTROLOGY - The astrological factors behind the epidemic

If we take a look at the city’s natal chart, the following factors are dominant:

1. The Jupiter-Neptune opposition at 26° on the Leo-Aquarius axis. Two planets ruling the first traditionally and the second modernly, the 6th house of the city, a house that is related to Health.

2. The Trine and Sextile aspect that the Lunar Nodes on the Cancer-Capricorn axis make to planet Mars at 8 ° and in the 8th house, that is associated with death.

3. At the same time, the Sun of the city is conjunct to the South Node and within the 4th house, the core of its existence, the foundations and the tradition of the city.

It is obvious to anyone who knows Astrology that when the Nodes and Mars wedge pattern -remember that Mars is a planet associated with epidemics in mundane astrology, and the Jupiter-Neptune opposition, are properly activated, then we may expect fatal events or bad fortune to befell the city. 

 


The first recorded incident of the virus – 8 December 2019

That is the case exactly, the transits of December 8th 2019, the day that the first case of Virus has been recorded, is revealing.

CORONAVIRUS ASTROLOGY - The astrological factors behind the epidemic

 

On that day we are having the transiting Nodes to be exact!! on the Nadir – Midheaven axis, and to also form a square with the Ascendant – Descendant axis of the city’s natal chart, heralding a fateful event that shakes the city.

The Nodes also make a trine-sextile aspect with natal Mars, reminiscing the same natal wedge pattern, and as we have stated Mars is related to epidemics and is in the 8th house. 

As if not enough that the natal and fated promise is triggered from the Nodes, transiting Saturn is in the 4th house of the city conjunct on natal Venus, a planet that is related to food and consumption, (the epidemic starts in the city seafood market), and also the ruler of the whole chart!

 


The Wuhan Virus is officially announced – 31 December 2019

The picture becomes gradually complete as the days pass, and on December 31, 2019, that is the same day with the Solar Return of the city for 2020(!!), the official announcement to the World Health Organisation on the epidemic takes place.

CORONAVIRUS ASTROLOGY - The astrological factors behind the epidemic

 

On this day, transiting Mars is at 27° 48′ Scorpio triggering with a square the natal, Jupiter – Neptune opposition.

The Mars square to natal Neptune is the virus infection and the relationship with the Sea (Neptune), but also Market and Food (since Mars is transiting through the 2nd house of the city).

The Mars square to natal Jupiter is the spread of the epidemic, and Mars in an inconjunct aspect (medical issue/health event) with the natal Chiron in the 7th house, is the heavy blow the city receives and which hurts its public image. At the same time, Mars is conjunct to the Moon, the population of Wuhan!

Three simultaneous Aspects of Mars from the 27° 48′ degrees Scorpio at the same time period when the Transiting Nodes are returning to their birth position and the city is having its Solar Return.

 


Of course, all these are combined with the December the 26th eclipse passing over China and the January the 10th eclipse occurring just over 1° degree from the city’s natal Venus.

I am afraid that the Mars-Neptune square on January 28th, and even worse, the upcoming Mars conjunction to the city’s natal Mercury on February 7, 2020, with Mercury being the planet that rules the 12th house of the city (hospitals, confinement), will contribute worse to a story that we all pray will have a good ending as soon as possible.

– Historical Source for the founding of the city of Wuhan by unifying three cities, Wikipedia.

UPDATE 13 FEBRUARY 2020

Right on the day that transiting Mars is on 27° of Sagittarius, making a trine – sextile to the city’s natal Jupiter – Neptune opposition, a change in the diagnostic criteria, skyrockets the number of cases.  The following headline is from New York Times.

On Thursday, health officials in China reported more than 14,000 new cases in Hubei Province alone. A change in diagnostic criteria may be the reason.” – New York Times

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 10 JANUARY 2020

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER – 10 JANUARY 2020: Under Pressure

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 10 JANUARY 2020


The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Cardinal Cross (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), and especially those who are born between January 8 – 12, April 8 – 12, July 10 – 14, and October 11 – 15. This eclipse is also important to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 18° – 22° degrees of the above Signs.


 

The first eclipse of the new year 2020 and the first eclipse of the decade, takes place on January the 10th.

It may be a soft-shaded penumbral Lunar Eclipse, but unfortunately, it is an eclipse that casts a heavy shadow, completely darkening our moods and psychology.

For some of you, that are having personal planets or points of your horoscope at 20° of the Cardinal Signs, this eclipse has already been activated, when Saturn was passing from the 20° degree of Capricorn. This happened around December the 20th 2019, and together with the Total Solar Eclipse on December the 26th has already brought events.


Request your Astrology or Eclipse Reading by Andrew Ifandis


 

The Eclipse takes place in the Sign of Cancer and its effect relates to issues of family, warmth, maternity, emotion, and security.

It sets, our responsibilities and obligations as defined socially, against our need to give and receive nurture and protective love.

It is an eclipse that brings on, an intense emotional charge that stems from a profound conflict.

It is a contrast between our nostalgia to return to the timelessness of childhood and into carefreeness, against the strict, conservative landscape of everyday life.

It is a psychological burden, as, on the one hand, we feel an urgent need for emotional transformation and regeneration, and on the other hand, we fear the intensity of the impending change.

This Lunar Eclipse in Cancer, described in less literary terms, is the pressure felt between our deepest needs, and the imperatives, the responsibilities and the maturity of our adult life. 

A life that is usually defined and evaluated in terms of success and status. Success, that as is often the case, has been built with emotional cost and is maintained with conventions.


A veil of oppressive emotionality will overshadow relations and partnerships, for those of you who happen to have personal planets or points of your horoscope, between 19° to 22° degrees of the Cardinal Signs.


LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 10 JANUARY 2020

 

This Eclipse combines and coincides with three major astrological events:

  • It takes place two days after the conjunction of planet Jupiter to the South Node at 8 ° 26 ‘Capricorn.
  • One day after the Eclipse planet Uranus returns to direct, on January 11th.
  • And of course, two days later, on January the 12th, we have the Saturn – Pluto conjunction, a much-debated meeting, the results of which we will see throughout the year 2020.

This meeting is a focal point of restructuring at all levels. It is the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new and perhaps painful birth/rebirth, both on a personal and on a global level.

A cycle that has already brought, within the last 18 months, and which will continue to bring for most of 2020, significant changes and events in the lives of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, and Aries Signs, born at the beginning of the third decan, at the beginning of the first decan, as well as in the middle of the second decan, as the effect of the eclipses combined with the conjunctions of the two planets, is for them strongest.

All of the above work combined.

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 10 JANUARY 2020

Saturn, and Pluto, and Mercury, are all conjunct the Sun and at the same time in opposition to the Moon.

Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts.

Moral checks and imperatives, ethical, professional, and in the family.

Emotion or logic, instinct or responsibility, osmosis or setting of our boundaries, and our sense of security is receiving the pressure from the heavy Saturn-Pluto artillery, that stirs within the need for a responsible and at the same time difficult transformation.


This pressure and these increased demands are felt while at the same time a new cycle begins, a cycle in which we want to realize put our ideas for change, freedom, and independence into practice.

It is the planet Uranus, that after a long period of examining what it is that we need to feel free, is now turning direct, and clearly shows us where our sense of security lies, and how it combines with our longing for self-expression.

And here is where the clash lies.


Amidst a suffocating frame of pressure from the Sun-Saturn conjunction, the existential restructuring of the Sun-Pluto conjunction, and the not compulsive, neither phobic, but certainly heavy and persistent thoughts that Mercury creates in his meeting with the two planets …

… our liberation, we can surely understand, is a difficult affair.

 

Multiple pressures, but please think, if you are one of those who strongly accept the energy of this eclipse, that you are a diamond that is still in the making.

A diamond that forms as suffocating pressures transform (Pluto), the structure (Saturn), of your core (the Sun), squeeze sensitivity and tenderness (Cancer Moon), on and on, until the desired rebirth, and the creation of your new crystal form.

Here are some examples of how this eclipse may turn out:

  • Pressure and hard work which combined with responsibility and ethics will lay firm foundations, for Capricorns, Taurus, Virgo Signs near 20° – 22°
  • Demands and control exerted by authority figures create conditions of pressure, lack of confidence in ourselves, and difficult business opportunities. Difficulties also in the emotional life and in financial matters for Cancer, Libra, and Aries Signs with personal planets or points between degrees 18° – 22°
  • Beware of manipulative behaviors from your partner, as those of you with Venus at 22° of the Cardinal Cross may find yourself in dilemmas and pressures in your relationships. – Also pay attention to unexpected pregnancies, as the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in a hard aspect to your Venus, may result in your relationship becoming “official” due to a pregnancy, which was not entirely ‘accidental’ but … premeditated manipulation!

As we said in the beginning, this eclipse occurs two days after the Jupiter South Node conjunction.

This means that under the pressing energy of the eclipse, and in order to withstand the pressure without breaking, but instead to become the diamond that we talked about, we need to:

  • Develop a new moral attitude, without repeating the mistakes of the past
  • Release karmic load through forgiveness
  • Reject worldviews and philosophies that no longer serve and must be left behind.
  • Beware of exaggeration, immodesty, and avoid the repetition of bad habits.

It is a pivotal point, it is a pivotal year 2020, both socially and personally for everyone.


This eclipse begins or continues the circles of pressure, but for some of you, it is the final curtain for situations that have lingered on.

It takes place exactly opposite the Solar Eclipse of July 13th 2018, that was at 20° 41′ Cancer.

Therefore, this eclipse now comes to definitive close cycles that opened or began in the summer of 2018, and especially for those of you that are having your ascendant or mid-heaven near the 20° degrees of the Cardinal Signs.

Epilogue

The Lunar Eclipse on Cancer of January the 10th is a pressing eclipse that brings difficult awareness.

It asks for forgiveness, removal from the karmic weight, and life-changing revisions, but it simultaneously opens the way towards new evolutionary paths, albeit difficult ones.

Those of you who are most affected, remember the… diamond!

Because the way we respond to stress and the changes that happen in our lives determines how things will continue.

It requires patience, responsibility, morals and restrain.

Be pressurized… responsibly.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - DECEMBER 2019

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN – DECEMBER 2019: The Unwrapping of the Gift

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - DECEMBER 2019


The Total Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Cardinal Cross (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), and especially those who are born between March 23 – 27, June 24 – 28, September 26 – 30, and December 24 – 28. Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 02° – 06° degrees of these Signs.


A total solar eclipse, takes place on the 25th or 26th of December, depending on where on the globe you will be on Christmas night.

This is not only the last eclipse of the year but also the last eclipse of the decade. An eclipse that I call “The Gift Unwrapping for the Upcoming Year 2020”.

Fittingly with the Christmas and festive spirit of the holidays season, it is an eclipse that brings Jupiterian gifts and surprised smiles to many. But please keep in mind, that the fact that something is wrapped in a glossy or luxury paper, does not necessarily mean that when we open the package, the gift revealed is always liked, well – suited, or really needed. Some presents may be, some others… are not.

 

This eclipse belongs to a series of eclipses on the Cancer – Capricorn axis. The series began with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer, on July 13th 2018, continued throughout 2019, and concludes in the summer of 2020.

This cycle of eclipses in the Cancer – Capricorn axis coincides with the gradual approach of Saturn towards Pluto and their conjunction in the Sign of Capricorn on the 12th of January 2020.

It is a cycle which for the past 18 months has already brought, and for the most part of the next year will continue to bring, significant changes and events to Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries Signs, since the effect of the eclipses combined with the conjunction of the two planets is stronger for them.

Let us remember though, that eclipses are important Astrological events and affect all of us without exception, some less and some more, and depending on the aspects they make on our personal natal chart.


Request your Astrology or Eclipse Reading by Andrew Ifandis


The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn occurs at 04° 06’ of the Sign, and it has an exuberant, positive and accomplishing energy.

The Sun and the Moon are in a tight conjunction with Jupiter. This is the joy of the unwrapping of the gift. We smile and we feel good. We are optimistic, we have enthusiasm, the hopes are high. Ready to conquer the world as we unwrap the package.

There is excitement in the eyes of the small girl as she is holding the gift in her hands, standing by the Christmas tree.

 

All this positive energy is manifested from within the practical and earthy Sign of Capricorn, and that is why this eclipse has the potential to bring luck and success in matters that have to do with professional accomplishments. It is an eclipse that can boost our small business or to present opportunities for career advancement.

There is a Stellium in Capricorn.

Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, the South Node, and the two Lights, all are in the Sign of Capricorn.

It is like the meeting of the executive board of the big company. Pluto is the representative of the main share-holders. He has the most influencing power. Saturn is the executive officer, the person with the responsibility for results. The South Node is the know – how of the company and the reliability its products have. Jupiter is the high spirits on the table, since the results of the year are very good and can support the company’s strategy and the goals for the New Year. The eclipse is the timing and the formulation of these goals.

Yes. This eclipse has a pivotal role for our future and advancement. It places an important seed. It is also an eclipse that happens just four days after the Winter Solstice, and it is in a sense linked with the energy of the solstice chart that describes the unfolding of events for the next three months.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - DECEMBER 2019

The powerful Mars

Another aspect in the eclipse chart, is the sextile between Mars in Scorpio and the Saturn – Pluto conjunction. Mars in Scorpio is extremely strategic and the sextiles with the conjunction represent tremendous opportunities for empowerment.

In business words:

  • decision making can be acute,
  • perception is heightened
  • and strategy is aligned with the goals.

In simple words… this eclipse supports very positively the setting of new goals and the taking of decisions.

 

The surprise element

There is excitement in the energy of this eclipse.

The Sun and the Moon are trine to the planet Uranus. This eclipse will bring awakenings that will be of crucial importance to new beginnings and new endeavors. It will bring surprises also.

Jupiter is also trine to the Planet Uranus. This is a separating aspect that culminated nearly two weeks before the eclipse. This aspect brings luck, favors expansion and allows for positive change.

Can you now see the excitement in the eyes of the girl by the Christmas tree?

 

There is also a Venus square Uranus aspect in the chart of the eclipse that mainly affects those that have personal planets or angles between 6° and 8° degrees of the Fixed Signs. This is an aspect of squandering.

Outflow of money.

So… the executive board meeting has to be more realistic with projecting the figures for 2020 because future plans may cost more than anticipated.

Those of us that are near the above degrees, we have to be cautious with our finances for the next 3 months.

While this eclipse will give an immediate boost in the financial markets, gains will be short-termed, so be aware of investments.

Be prudent and do not take risks. Invest on new plans but keep some money aside.

Do not waste love, also. It’s the most valuable currency.

 

The opening of the gift – What is inside?

Eclipses do not work alone. They work in pairs. This particular total Solar Eclipse is linked to the Lunar Eclipse that takes place on the 10th of January 2020.

That is why this eclipse is like the gift unwrapping and the next one is the actual opening of the box that contains the “presents” of 2020.

This is why, as we shall begin to feel the energy of this eclipse, we shall expect positive things and we shall feel optimistic. Yes, this is a very positive eclipse but there is a small catch that we have to be aware of.

As we open the tall box of the gift, what is inside might be what we wanted! Ski boards of the most expensive brand… The gift is perfect.

But we have to be cautious as we slide with these swift new boards that we haven’t yet mastered, because we do not want to fall and break a leg.

Or what if in the following months we get a promotion and move to the south and sunny?  The boards will be put to the closet.

What I am saying, is that the Jupiterian influence has to be moderated. Do not take high risks because the following 6 months, and the next eclipses are more difficult. 2020 has many surprises, some of them good and some of them difficult.

Epilogue

This is a positive eclipse, that helps many of us with our plans and professional advancement. It works favorably for career, for general recognition and for accomplishing new things that are planted now.

All these will not come easily and will not come free. From within Capricorn all Jupiterian favor goes hand in hand with hard work, ethics and responsibility.

Be optimistic, start new things, take decisive actions, make these changes you have in mind and set goals. But be cautious and be prudent.

I wish everyone to enjoy the benefits of this eclipse.

Have a Merry Christmas and most importantly have a positive, rewarding and evolving New Year, 2020!

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - 16 JULY 2019

LUNAR ECLIPSE – 16 JULY 2019: Under the spiraling gyre – Part II

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - 16 JULY 2019


This particular eclipse is especially important for those who belong to the Signs of the Cardinal Cross (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn), and who are born between July 15 – July 19, October 16 – October 20, January 12 – January 16, and April 12 – April 16.

Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 22° – 26° degrees of these Signs.


We are now deep into the eclipse season.

This is a period of significance.

I am warning you. I am going to be straightforward. I am going to be poetic. I am not going to caress your ears.


 

The Theme of the Eclipse – Individual Level

The partial Lunar Eclipse of July the 16th takes place at 24°04′ of the Sign of Capricorn.

It follows the Solar Eclipse in Cancer that took place two weeks ago, and as such it represents our emotional climax and response to issues that then started. It is the emotional reaction to the demands that are now beginning to appear.

And the emotional response seems to be quite, not to say extremely, heavy.

Pluto is conjunct the Moon in this eclipse. The Moon is in Capricorn, something that already makes her pragmatic and strict. Utilitarian and craving respect under the Pluto influence becomes obsessive or possessive, jealous or conspiring.

Emotions are at a peak. This is a Full Moon. This is an Eclipse. A Full Moon that is shadowed temporarily, eclipsed, loosing its tenderness and warmth, as the light from the Sun in Cancer that in a sense was giving her, is now blocked.


This will affect relations. Or this may be the start of an on-going emotional eclipse that will culminate in January 2020 with its end results in the summer of 2020.


LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - 16 JULY 2019Moon is conjunct Saturn also. On top to the deep psychological examination that the conjunction with Pluto brings, heavy lies the burden of responsibilities. Work versus family life. Sadness.

On the other side of the chart Venus is conjunct the Sun and opposite Saturn.

This Venus – Saturn opposition reinforces the theme of detachment in our relationships but does not yet herald the split or the breaking up. It is the recognition of the stagnation, of the boundaries in affection and love. The difficulty to reach out.

Financial problems may also befall those hit close by this eclipse. While money cannot be made out of thin air, the emotional shortage can at least be prevented.

Get out of the Moon – Pluto – Saturn zone and reach on the other side of the chart to the Sun conjunct Venus. There is help there.

Reflect as Mercury retrogrades from Leo into Cancer:

  • Is this pressure that causes emotional and existential stress on my family life worth?
  • Do I need the professional spotlight? Do I need to crave attention? (Mercury Rx in Leo)?

or

  • is it better if I focus on what it is that the other person needs?
  • Be gentle, be kind, be attentive to the needs of the important ones in your life.
  • As the power games appear, turn to your sweeter side.
  • You may have less money but you become rich by displaying affection.
  • Be intuitively present for the others and do it politely and with no expectations.
  • Use the positive expression from the Sun conjunct Venus in Cancer.

Look to the easing of the opposition.

Neptune is sextile Saturn and trine to Venus and the North Node of the eclipse chart.

Neptune is selfless wholeness.

Its sextile to Saturn is constructive belief and grounded faith. Its trine to Venus is devotion and devout.

This devout feeling or the very faith in the value of yourself, gives the needed rebirth (Pluto) to the emotions (Moon). Ii is a baptism in faith (Neptune).

This is a DIFFICULT eclipse. Use Astrology. Use the eclipse’s chart for your emotional benefit. (Pluto conjunct Moon in Capricorn – in its positive expression).

This eclipse is monumental in the way it reshapes our emotional centre in the areas it affects in the chart.

 

Will the centre hold?

“Be full with passionate intensity and don’t lack conviction” in this spiraling gyre of the eclipses and the synodic cycles, as the great poet W.B. Yeats would have said.

I warned you I would be poetic…haven’t I?

 


The eclipse effect for the Signs

(applies for rising sign also or natal placements of personal planets near the degree of the eclipse)

 

The eclipse is difficult highlighting issues relative to the houses and the planets it falls on in the natal chart, for Aries, Cancer, Libra Signs, especially those mentioned in the start of the article.

It is empowerment through increased pressure and responsibilities for Capricorn Signs,especially those mentioned in the start of the article. because they tend to respond better to the Saturnine Energy, even if it’s oppressive.

It is a revisiting of the past or the past re – appearing in the form of persons or situations mostly for Leo and Scorpios and to a lesser extent for Aquarius.

It mostly works neutral to positive for Taurus, Virgos, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius Signs.

The Lunar Eclipse will be fully visible from nearly all countries in the world, with the exception of United States, Canada and North-Eastern Russia.

 

Continue on here to see how this eclipse will affect us on a mundane level.
