Musings on the Great American Eclipse

for an article about the astrology of the eclipse, follow this link.

This week like so many others Rich and I took a trip (with our NASA authorized glasses) to a location in South Carolina where the path of the eclipse would exhibit maximum totality.  The most incredible part of the eclipse experience was witnessing the explosion of light after the shadow of the Moon covered the Sun.  As an astrologer I tend to focus more on the inner landscape of planetary events and less on the astronomical, but it was still a miracle to witness such an amazing display of nature’s majesty.

One thing I don’t like about my job is that other’s people fears create business opportunities.  The hype around the effect of this eclipse was so immense that I had clients calling me afraid to travel during the eclipse.  One was afraid to start a new job.  One thought her marriage would end.  One thought she would probably die because the eclipse was on her ascendant, but our reading actually occurred when the lunar eclipse was on her Pluto!  And of course she was just fine.

To be fair, most of the doomsayers were religious fanatics rather than astrologers, and in the midst of my first total eclipse I understood why ancient humans were so afraid of eclipses.  The world suddenly goes dark as the Moon eats the Sun, birds and insects go quiet, and the light fades in a particularly eerie fashion as darkness drains the color from the world and replaces it with blackness.

Eclipses are important astrologically because they occur when the lunar nodes are conjunct (aligned with) the Sun and Moon.  Because the lunar […]

Setting the stage: the Lunar Eclipse at the Full Moon in Aquarius

lunar eclipse august 2017

We are deeply into the season of Leo now – Leo the lion, the Divine Child, the magical Self.  Beginning with the first Leo New Moon on July 23rd, moving through the lunar eclipse on August 7th when the Leo sun obscures the Aquarius Moon, and culminating at the Solar Eclipse on August 21 (did you buy your eclipse glasses yet??), the divine energies of Leo are showering us with blessings of self-actualization and the potential for the opening of the heart.

Leo is ruled by the Sun, the center of the solar system and of the astrological pantheon.  The Sun represents the True Self – the incarnated soul. Powered by the giver of life, the solar energies, Leo encourages us to be our best self that we can possibly be.  The Sun is associated with the physical heart in medical astrology, and have shown that the health of the emotional heart (the Moon) is connected to the health of the physical heart (the Sun) as well.

Leo’s tendency is to try to feel good about one’s self through impressing others rather than through simply doing good things with no apparent reward such as Leo’s opposite, Aquarius, might do.  In today’s lunation, the Leo Sun will pass directly over the Aquarius Full Moon, giving us an opportunity to transcend the individuality of our personal ego and connect with all of mankind – to take a higher perspective and a broader vision than the usual (Aquarius) while allowing the majesty of our individual brilliance to continue to shine (Leo).

Mars aligns with the Sun in Leo, enhancing this Leo influence even more, and the North Node of the […]

Prepare for August’s planetary twists and turns

Although it’s the solar eclipse on August 21 that is making all the headlines, a more important planetary dynamic is the fact that three planets change direction in August: Uranus, Mercury and Saturn.

Planets of course don’t really change the direction of their orbit, but from our perspective here on earth sometimes the planets appear to move backwards which we call retrograde.  When they reverse course again to move forwards we call that direct.

  • On August 3rd Uranus, planet of radical change and independence, turns retrograde and for the first few weeks of the month we can expect changes and rapid turns of events, shifts in financial markets and political scenarios. If our own chart is affected by Uranus we could see surprising events occur in our own lives as well.
  • Mercury, ruling the mind and communication, turns retrograde on August 12th, and for the next three weeks you can expect some snafus in communication or technology as well as a tendency to look back into the past in order to correct or revise something that needs to be improved.
  • Saturn, planet of discipline and hard work – the Celestial Teacher – has been retrograde since April 6th and turns direct on August 25th.  Now is the time to reap the rewards of your hard work.

With all of these planets shifting the direction of our focus, as well as two eclipses (the Full Moon on August 7th is also an eclipse though it is less powerful than the Solar Eclipse) creating a tidal surge of transformation, this month of August offers a plenitude of opportunities for personal growth […]
