LUNAR ECLIPSE IN SCORPIO MAY 2022


The Lunar Eclipse takes place in the Sign of Scorpio, and is of special importance for ALL Zodiac signs, as each eclipse marks an evolutionary point for everyone.

It is especially difficult for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius persons, especially those who have personal planets or horoscope angles between 23°-27° degrees.

Challenging for Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn Signs, requiring faith and calmness.

It demands readjustments and a change of attitude for Aries, Gemini, Libra, and Sagittarius.

A very difficult Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio takes place on May 15th or May 16th, depending on where you are in the world, which fills us with gloom and pessimism.

It is a critical eclipse that will surely distress us since our sense of security will be largely determined by our maturity and patience in dealing with situations.

 

Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 1

There’s a well-known line in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, in the scene where Macbeth is walking in the night, and hearing the sound of the castle bell echoing grimly, he monologues:

“I go and it is done. The bell calls me.

Don’t listen to it Duncan, for it is a sound that calls you to Heaven or Hell.”

 

The lunar eclipse in Scorpio has the same dark and grim mood as the bell Macbeth hears. The bell is tolling and depending on our reactions our path will be more or less difficult.

There are some helpful and positive aspects in the Eclipse chart but one thing is for sure, we will first have to go through the Darkness before we can come out into the Light again.

Saturn in Aquarius has been square to the Moon’s Nodes for some time now, and will continue to be for some time to come. From this position it calls us to act with responsibility and maturity, and to make choices where there is no room for excessive sentimentality or excessive rationalization.

In particular in this eclipse, Saturn is in addition in a tight square to the two Lights and its message is like the bell that Macbeth hears. So let us listen carefully, for its chime leads us down one of two paths:

One path leads to emotional stress and disappointment caused by our inability to deal with responsibilities in our relationship. It brings emotional detachment, coldness, sadness and pessimism. – This path is the dark night of the soul and we don’t want to take it.    IT IS NOT AN OPTION.

The other path leads to integrity and maturity. It requires patience and hard work, especially in how we respond to the emotional needs of our loved ones.

It is a difficult second path, through a dark tunnel, and along the way we need to understand what it is that really makes us feel safe. As we walk to the exit we need to have a clear understanding of the bigger picture for the future and to address our fears.

But this is very difficult with Mercury, the planet that characterizes all functions of thought and communication, retrograde, and also conjunct the Sun and in opposition to the Moon.

So great care is needed in what we say and how we say it because the Mercury-Moon opposition makes it difficult to express ourselves and can lead us to communicating our feelings in completely the wrong way, as the emotional strain is intense and we are under pressure.

 

It is preferable to take advantage of the introverted energy of this eclipse to better understand our own motivations, our own obsessions. Where we are possessive, why we are filled with fears and where our peace lies.

The tranquillity of Taurus, and not the complexity of Scorpio, is the aim of this eclipse.

We need to understand that a requirement of emotional security is TRUST, whereas in contrast, the dark brooding of insecurity only brings about further emotional suffocation and grows the Shadows…

 

Chiron conjunct Venus at 14° Aries is the healing power of Love shining like a star waiting for us on the way out.

But it’s also the bittersweet trauma of insecurity that we carry along the way…

 

Aiding the energy of the eclipse, the Mars-Neptune conjunction from the sign of Pisces acts like the lantern that lights our way through the dark tunnel. It is a conjunction that in trine – sextile to the Moon’s Nodes reminds us how crucial it is not to be impulsive, but to let go guided with our intuition.

It asks us to believe that the Universe is watching our back. Only in this way can material and emotional insecurities disappear.

Mars conjunct Neptune is the counterbalance to the phobias expressed by Saturn as it touches the Nodes with a square. It is Zen contemplation. To let ourselves go with the flow. It is FAITH to DARE to go towards our dream, to go towards our destiny.

 

So, as we hear the bell of this eclipse, we know that we will go down a dark path.

Let us dispel the Shadows cast by the negative manifestations of the Scorpio – Taurus axis with the Light cast by the lantern of inspiration, by the Light of our intuition. Let them dispelled by the Light of a determination that is not shaken by hesitation, that has Faith, and that empathizes.

Jupiter from the first-first degree of Aries promises a New Beginning after this Eclipse.

A beginning that will come… sooner or later. But that will come.

 

And the next, very favorable New Moon on May 30, promises the same as well.

 

Until then… keep the lantern bright.

NEW MOON IN ARIES 1 APRIL 2022

By astrologer, Andrew Ifandis


The New Moon takes place at 11°30′ of Aries Sign, and affects us all, but especially Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn persons born in the first days of the 2nd decan, as well as those of you who have personal planets or angles of your horoscope near the degrees 9°-13° of the above Signs. 

Influence is strong for Scorpio, Taurus, Virgo and Pisces Sings, born in the first days of the 3rd decan, as well as those of you who have personal planets or angles of your horoscope near the degrees 20°-24° of the above Signs. 

Attention because this will be a difficult New Moon, to Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius persons born in the first days of the 2nd decan.
Choose wisely!

Some decisions are as important as walking on the silver blade of a razor and trying to balance without falling and without cutting yourself.

The New Moon in Aries, which takes place on April 1 is a bittersweet Moon. It has two faces and invites us to choose through its completely mixed grid of energies how to express them and which of the two sides we will ultimately lean towards.

Aries’ impulsive energy is full of excitement and impatience. It calls us to action or reaction. It’s either a restart or a completely new beginning after coming full circle. Ego and individualism or redefining the ego and renewing it.

“We shall not cease from exploration. And the end of all our exploringWill be to arrive where we startedAnd know the place for the first time.”

T.S. Elliot

We shall not cease, the poet writes, and then immediately goes on to talk about the end of exploration. End and beginning simultaneously, and infinitely, for the beginning and the end are the same locally but are different temporally, and existence itself is but a circle, within circles, within circles.

The full cycle of the Sun and Moon around the Zodiac brings us again to the first Zodiac of the endless Journey, Aries. It brings us back to the same point from where we started but we are called to look at ourselves and our relationships again with new eyes.

The conjunction of Chiron and this New Moon has on one hand the power to close cycles of trauma and to heal by inviting us to a new beginning.

But on the other hand, if we don’t consciously handle the energy of this moon, and if we don’t act equipped with the wisdom of the Master Centaur, we will only taste the bitter poison of rejection.

The New Moon in Aries is about healing in relationships of all kinds and about cleansing our own selfish attitudes.

Some days before, the squares of Venus and Mars to Uranus intensified and brought tensions in relationships.

Shortly thereafter, Venus’ conjunction with Saturn brought, in its positive manifestation, introversion and maturity, inviting us to consider what is worthwhile and what is not, and in its worst, detachment, numbness and deprivation of our joy.

This moon marks a new beginning just before two important conjunctions. That of Mars and Saturn in the sign of Aquarius on April 5th and that of Jupiter and Neptune in the sign of Pisces on April 12th.

The first is a difficult conjunction which asks us to arm ourselves with patience. It requires tempered reactions… It wants us not to force situations but instead to move slowly, calmly, responsibly, and most importantly without emotional outbursts and anger.

It is an aspect which requests maximum maturity and which in its good manifestation characterizes responsible leaders and gives management ability. From the sign of Aquarius, it calls us to act for the collective and the common, far from fixations and stuck ideas.

The second works completely in the opposite direction.

It is hope. It is vision. It is expansion of the soul and connecting to the universal. It summons higher frequencies through forgiveness.

It is satisfaction for the soul, as the beautiful, the pure, and the unconditional are both the aspiration and the ideal.

We empatize. Forgive, we are moved because the soul is part of the universe and it is only the soul’s OWN truth that is in alignment with the Divine Plan.

Jupiter conjunct Neptune is an aspect which if we are honest with our Soul will elevate us and lead us away from self-deception, and disappointments.

Three conjunctions (New Moon-Chiron, Mars-Saturn, Jupiter-Neptune), six possible manifestations which will only be determined by our free will and our degree of consciousness.

Poison, bitterness, anger and disappointment the completely negative extreme. Healing, cleansing, accountability of actions and a renewed vision infused with dreaming, the positive.

The Moon’s Nodes reflect the silver of the Moon and upon the thin silver blade of karma, we walk these days, towards the destiny that WE will create with our choices.

Venus in a separating square to the Lunar Nodes has already brought the first turning point regarding relationships.

Mars in an applying square to the Lunar Nodes is climaxing decisions and as ruler of the New Moon will trigger either a daring new beginning or an explosive new ending.

Saturn square to the Lunar Nodes, the Lord of Time and Karma, laughs as he knows he holds the keys for the fate of those of us who will not take it in our own hands.

And finally Jupiter and Neptune in a trine and a sextile to the Lunar Nodes have the last word and color the picture of the dream, that you who is reading these lines is seeing and dreaming…

Yet now…with New Eyes.

LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - 16 JULY 2019

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

Sharing is caring:

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.

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 blunt, I am going to be straightforward. I am going to reference the symbolism of poetry. I am to give you a snapshot of the eclipse(s) that is (are) coming.


 

It is not the end of the world. Never will it be.

The Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July the 16th is not the most difficult eclipse. On the contrary, it has some aspects that are good and it may work very positive on an individual level for some of the Signs.  – Read Part II

 

But though not the most difficult, it is nevertheless a VERY DIFFICULT eclipse.

It marks the first taste of the Saturn – Plutonic pressure that is going to resonate during the first half of 2020 as we approach the Saturn – Pluto conjunction.

 

The eclipse at a mundane level

In the mundane expression of this eclipse now begins the lifting of the heavy burden and the upcoming overturn. Now is the upsetting.

There is a cosmic relation between this lunar eclipse and the lunar eclipse that is coming on January the 10th of 2020. Two days before the conjunction of the heavy artillery of planet Saturn and planet Pluto on 22°46’ of Capricorn.

This one takes place at 24°04 of Capricorn while the January one takes place on 20° precisely.

Do you get the picture?

The conjunction is at 22°, and the two eclipses are, the first one two degrees ahead, and the latter, two degrees before.

22° is sandwiched between the two eclipses with heavy metal music playing on the 20° and 24°.

“Emphasized 22° degree, so what?”, one may ask.

But it is not this only…

There is also an emphasis on the 20th degree, relating to last July’s eclipse on the 13th of the month that took place on 20°41’ of Cancer and…

…and Mercury, that is retrograde during this eclipse, will station direct exactly on 24° of Cancer also. (23°56’ to be precise).

This is not only a cosmic “sandwich” upon the 22° degrees of the Cardinal Signs but also a heavy bombardment of energy both on 20° and 24°degrees, starting with this eclipse and ending on January 2020.


On a mundane level we are now entering a period where the traditional structures and the global power dynamics are shifting irrevocably.


LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN - 16 JULY 2019

The Cancer – Capricorn nodal axis of the eclipses and the Saturn – Pluto conjunction, redefine and reshape the extent to which less powered nations will accept the pressure of globalization and corporations.

Boundaries will reshape. Nationalism versus Globalism. Distribution of power will be challenged. Development will be framed because unchecked, it is consuming the planet.

To nurture and care (Cancer) for the many will become a paramount request. People over profits, (Pluto in Capricorn).

How power is exerted (Capricorn) in relation to issues of homeland, nationality and tradition (Cancer) becomes important.

These are the warring elements at the end of the Saturn – Pluto synodic cycle. This is how the world chess game will play out with all the pressure on the central 22° degree.

 

Will the centre hold?

“The center cannot hold” as the great poet W.B. Yeats would have said, under this spiraling gyre of the eclipses and the synodic cycles.

 

I warned you I would be symbolic, haven’t I?

 

 

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 you on an individual level.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

SOLAR ECLIPSE – 2 JULY 2019: The Past Is A Strange Place

Sharing is caring:

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 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 June 30 – July 4, October 2 – 6, December 30 –  January 3, and March 28 – April 1. Also to those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the 08° – 12° degrees of these Signs.


We have now entered the eclipse season.

This is a period of significance.

 

1. The motions in the sky

In July the planetary movements peak with two eclipses, one important retrogradation and one electrically-charged square.

July starts with a Total Solar Eclipse that takes place on the 2nd of the month.

This eclipse is part of the series of eclipses on the Cancer – Capricorn axis. These eclipses began with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 13 2018, and shall continue throughout 2019, up until the summer of 2020, when they will be completed.

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 in January 2020, two parallel astrological events that signal a period of 18 months that brings significant changes to Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra Signs, since for them, the effect of the eclipses combined with the conjunction will be more strong.


Remember though, that eclipses are potent Astrological events and affect all of us, more or less, without exception.

Each eclipse’s effect always depends on the aspects it makes and on the houses it activates, in our personal horoscope.

2. The Eclipse

The Total Solar Eclipse of July the 2nd takes place at 10°37′ of the Sign of Cancer and is an eclipse that has a strong resonance to the past while at the same time it opens a window towards the future.

Behind its plain appearance, it conceals rather intricate themes, and besides its main effect on the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) it also plays an important role for those born on the first days of the Fixed Signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius).

 

3. The darkening of the Sun

A Solar Eclipse is the Moon coming in front of the Sun.

It is a momentary lapse of reason and consciousness, and a plunge deep into the unconscious. Needs are felt deeply and come to the fore. The mind stops, the heart beats, dark lingers for a while, until finally the sun comes out again, bringing something new for our lives, something for which most of the times, we are not prepared.

Under this Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer, issues that have to do with our sense of security, our home, parenting concerns or motherhood, as well as other personal issues that relate to the area of life that the Moon rules in our personal chart, will most likely concern us within the first days after the eclipse.

These same issues will culminate gradually as we approach the following Lunar Eclipse that will take place two weeks afterwards.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

 

4. The North Node beacon

What is important, it is that the Sun and the Moon are near the North Node in this eclipse.

This means that the effect that the eclipse will have, regardless of how we may initially feel it, aims to move us forward. In the Sign of Cancer, “forward” may means among other things:

  • We become more aware and responsive to the needs of others in the area denoted by the house the eclipse falls.
  • After the initial shaking of the eclipse, we become more intuitive or emotionally intelligent.
  • Responsibilities that have to do with family or children may burden us more, but it is through this path that our fulfillment lies in the long run and we come to realize it.

 

5. A resonance to the past

I wrote some lines above that this Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer has a strong resonance to the past.

The very essence of Cancer, a Sign that is ruled by Moon, is a clinging to the familiar. In this Eclipse both our conscious (Sun) and our desire (Moon) are positioned in this Watery Sign, steeped with nostalgia and memory.

But as you may know, the past is a strange place…

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

In this particular eclipse the past, the memory of the past, or the nostalgia for it, may appear unexpectedly and overwhelmingly.

There are two important astrological facts that tie Time with Karma upon the axis of this eclipse.

The first one is the very tight applying conjunction of Saturn to the South Node of the Eclipse, a conjunction almost exact but for 0°06’ minutes!

It is as if Saturn tests us, trying to drag us back to the past, or to past habits, resisting our moving forward towards the North Node and our development.

Discipline, integrity and mastery over habits that have served their purpose needs to be applied.

Karmic cleansing must be applied. Release any fear rooted in the past, leave behind anxiety and pessimism rooted in the need for material security.

Stop testing yourself and your emotions trying to please authoritative persons, seeking career achievements, or trying to adjust to situations or relationships that have been proven rigid.

Care for those that care for you and start tuning to circumstances and relationships that provide not only material but emotional security also.

 

6. Re-prise

The second astrological factor is the fact that planet Mercury is going to turn retrograde on the 7th of July, just five days after the eclipse.

On the eclipse chart, Mercury is conjunct Mars that is situated at 0°31’ of Leo. From this degree Mars is activating once more the Total Lunar Eclipse of the 21st of January 2019.

Think of it for a moment… An eclipse in Cancer is activating a past eclipse that took place in Leo, some days before Mercury turns retrograde in Leo.

Not only this, but Mercury will be also passing retrograde over the previous eclipse’s degree.

It seems that Karmic are the ties that have to be dissolved for Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius Signs born on the very first days or for those with personal planets or angles near the 0°-2° degrees of the Fixed Signs.

Persons or past lovers may re-appear, issues that those Signs felt with the previous eclipse are now being re-visited.

It is as if the universe is shouting,


“Re-visit, re-think and let go of the past. Re-cycle it in the dustbin and move on”.

“Release the Karmic burden”.

“Forgive and forget”.


This will not easily happen because both Mars and Mercury are close together and make a conjunction on the 9th of July, in between the two eclipses.

Right on this Mercury – Mars conjunction the planet Uranus is making a square that comes exact to planet Mars on July the 11th.

This is a power-charged square that electrifies the conjunction and may bring impulsive reactions, nervousness, restlessness and to make our tongue sharp.

It amplifies the tension, fuels anger, results in arguments and conflict.

SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER 2 JULY 2019

Release, release, release…

This is the only constructive approach to the tension that builds up with this eclipse and to the demand for a Karmic cleansing.

A cleansing and moving forward that will most possibly happen only after the second eclipse that follows on the 16th of July, when the emotional climax will peak.

7. 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 born on the last days of the first decan and the first days of the second decan.
