More details on tonight’s eclipse

The lunar eclipse tonight will be one of the longest lasting eclipses in 100 years, lasting about 100 minutes. It will be visible in eastern South America, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Southern or Southeast Asia, and Australia but will not be visible from North America.  It is thought that eclipses have a more powerful effect in the areas in which they can be seen with the naked eye, but I haven’t really noticed a corollation.

(.) The eclipse will begin when the earth’s shadow is cast on the Moon at about 2:22 pm Eastern on June 15th/18:23 Universal Time (UT).  The total eclipse begins 3:23 Eastern/19:23 UT with the maximum eclipse occurring at 4:22 Eastern/20:12 UT.  The entire event will conclude at around 6:02 pm Eastern/22:02 UT.

Many of you have written me asking what to expect from the eclipse, and the truth is there is no way to predict this.  If your chart is individually affected because you have planets between 20 and 28 degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo or Pisces), or if you have a strongly placed Moon or an emphasis in Cancer and are therefore more sensitized to lunar events, you may feel as though something is erupting into consciousness.  You may be inspired to make a major change, or that something in your life is completed.

I believe it’s most helpful to simply observe your experience rather than anticipate it – that way you will be best prepared to greet any experience that opens up within you.  Eclipses often reveal something which has been hidden or which we have kept buried within us, so there is an opportunity for a greater awakening as well.

Sagittarius lunar eclipse and Full Moon, June 15 2011

Midsummer Full Moon

The energy for tomorrow’s lunar eclipse is starting to build, and it’s likely to have a profound effect on many of us. The eclipse will peak at the moment of the Full Moon at 4:14 pm Eastern.

This is a Full Moon in Sagittarius, the sign that represents our search for meaning. Sagittarius describes the Truth that we create for ourselves, and the urge for expansion and adventure that drives us in search for that Truth. The Gemini Sun opposes the Sagittarius Moon, urging us to integrate the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity of knowledge and learning. In Gemini we learn with an open mind; in Sagittarius we seek understanding and discrimination between that which is true and that which is not true. Gemini opens us to new experiences but lacks discrimination; Sagittarius creates more rigid ideology but learns discernment. Neither is better than the other, but the two require balance.

A conjunction of Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, to the Gemini Sun will weigh the balance heavily in Gemini’s favor, activating the mind to be curious and wide awake, processing our life’s experiences through the realm of thoughts and ideas.  This can take us away from the emotional heart where wisdom can settle and become integrated into our life, and a conjunction of Chiron to Neptune in the eclipse chart suggests that there is still soul work to be done.

This eclipse is a powerful one as the Sun and Moon are only one degree from a conjunction to the nodes of the Moon.  The lunar nodes are not planetary bodies but are points in the sky where the Moon crosses the apparent path of the Sun from our earthly perspective.  The nodes are connected with our evolutionary progress […]

“The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.”

“Tell me something good.”

It’s human nature to seek pleasure and avoid pain.  Nobody wants to feel bad, or go through difficult situations.  I have been an astrologer for more than half of my life now, so it’s hard for me to remember what it was like before I new about planetary cycles that were likely to bring challenges that required adjustment and change, but I imagine that it is pretty confusing.  Life is going great, and then all of a sudden here comes a curve ball and suddenly I’m feeling depressed for apparently no reason.

Some of you have heard me say that I have the hardest chart I’ve ever seen, and I like to think that’s so that I can bring some understanding to the table when consulting with clients.  When I talk about healing the core wound, or dealing with depression, it’s not just a concept – I’ve been there.  I know what it’s like to consider suicide.  I know what it’s like to feel that life will never get any better.  But I also know what it’s like to have moved through these horribly difficult times and come out the other side with great joy and happiness.

Sometimes in a consultation the client will say “I’ve just had a terrible time but now I want to move on.  Tell me something good.”  And it would be easy to help her to forget about where she has just been and talk only about the Jupiter transits that are coming, or the fact that her Moon has just progressed into Sagittarius which will make it easier for her to avoid the pain that she’s feeling.  But my experience tells me that before we can REALLY move on, we […]
