As the Autumn / Fall equinox approaches, we have a total lunar eclipse Friday 16th September at 2:54pm eastern time. It actually begins at 12:54 eastern time. This lunar eclipse will be visible in Africa, Asia, and Australia.
Eclipses occur when the Earth, Sun, and Moon form a straight line. During a solar eclipse, the light of the Sun is blocked out as the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. During a lunar eclipse, the reflective light of the Moon is extinguished as the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon. In either case, light is eliminated.
The effect of a solar eclipse lasts one year for each hour of the eclipse's duration (usually about 3.5 years). The effect of a lunar eclipse varies in duration. Knowing when significant planets later transit over the eclipse point is key to chart interpretation. This eclipse is likely to stimulate any misalignment between reality and imagination or vision in the next few weeks and this occurs in the run-up to the US presidential election... I will release a video shortly with my analysis and prediction for the next President of the United States so keep your eyes on your inbox... If you aren't subscribed to me free blog, here is the link.
I haven't quite finished my analysis on the election, but as a heads up let me say that it looks as though orange is the new black...
An eclipse indicates what in your life needs to be changed. It is like an alarm signal telling you where to wake up and focus. This depends on its location within your natal chart (the natal chart delineates the soul or astral body which resides on the astral plane). It literally changes the manner in which you receive the energies or rays of the planets.
As this eclipse occurs in Virgo and Pisces prepare to identify and rectify any imbalance between your day-to-day reality and your deepest visions and gut instincts. Get ready to also address old wounds as Chiron will be close to the Full Moon eclipse point. Mars forms a 90 degree angle to this eclipse so prepare to deal with any aggressive urges and drives to get where you really want to be or to get what you really want without causing collateral damage. Watch out though because the planet of love (Venus) is in powerful opposition to quirky / odd / sudden Uranus. Love and relationship sparks will be flying all around the neighborhood.
As regards the election, brace for people to really start fully expressing their disappointments and frustrations with leadership! It occurs on top of Obama's natal Mars, so he is likely to take a much harder kicking of criticism and aggression related to any actions or lack of action associated with his presidency. And poor Hilary - the eclipse occurs on top of her natal Moon which will most likely affect her popularity even more.
It is particularly significant when an eclipse occurs on or very near to one of your planets, the Ascendant, Descendant, Imum Coeli, Midheaven, or a house cusp.
This total lunar eclipse occurs under the signs of Virgo and Pisces at 24 degrees. Wherever these two points fall in your chart, reflect deeply and stay in control. If you have planets in Pisces or Virgo, have a think about the things that those planets represent which includes the houses in which they are located plus the house cusps that they rule. It is in these areas of your life that you will feel the impacts.
And here is a special Lunar Eclipse treat for you as we approach Autumn. You are the first to see my new video 'The Truth About Halloween'!
All the best to you as well as everyone and everything you love!
