Aries (March 20-April 19)
This is an intense and potentially meaningful moment in the life of an Aries rising/Aries Sun or generally 1st House or Aries type soul. It could be easy to vibrate with such intensity that the other in your life feels burned up. Seek the path of higher truth and meaning versus the mundane achievements. Better yet: make the mundane miraculous and honor each and every soul in your life as the treasure chest of experiences they desire to be. When all else fails, keep a lid on it.
Taurus (April 19- May 20)
What is it that can be undone about yourself? What layer of that self, compiled of thoughts, ideas, and values that are not necessarily your own and don’t necessarily fit any more, can be cast off into the dustbin of personal history? This eclipse is urging purification in order to think, feel, and react to your highest ideal.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
The most beautiful image forms in your chart tonight to convey a message of stillness and observation. There are questions, deep ones, of self-realization, creativity, and childhood that for a moment stand still as a portrait. You can paint it, recite it, admire it, or tear it down but whatever happens let it be of your own volition.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Eventually, home becomes something distant and foreign, whether desired or not or an intentional moving on or through the natural flow of time, we all (well, mostly) find ourselves in the position of governor of our own house. This can produce joy, terror, jubilance, or dread, and all are just fine and appropriate to feel and express. This eclipse appears to be asking you where you are at in this journey and how you feel about the state of affairs of the nation of you.
Leo (July 22-August 23)
The literal-what you see in your day to day affairs-and the local-as in the mundane day to day events that can occupy a life-are easy to get lost in and may create a yearning for something more. This appears to be the case for you with this eclipse. Your mind is indeed your friend so listen to it as you would a constant companion (which I hope is thoughtfully), and write down the several ideas for travel, learning, and journey’s of discovery that may crop up through this moment in astrology. Then take action. There’s more to these ideas than trivial fun.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Check in with yourself regarding ownership of a particular issue in your relationships with others with this eclipse. It’s entirely possible that the swings of emotion and projection of blame that may have come your way recently are not yours at all but just that: projection and transference of ownership. With Mercury retrograding back into your 2nd Solar House, it’s time to review matters of self-worth. With the Moon eclipsed in your Solar 8th House it’s time to isolate what emotional baggage is your’s and what is not…and then let go…
Libra (September 22-October 23)
There are moments in life that require one to stand-alone and make a decision based solely on their sense of autonomy. This does not mean that the ramifications of the act or decision is not thought through, on the contrary, all the possible angles are to be taken into consideration, weighed carefully, and advanced forward into the possible future. IN fact, taking iall this into consideration will facilitate strong, independent action. But a move may need to be made at moments like this one, and must be based on how you see yourself reacting on a day to day basis otherwise.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
All the energy in the world is at your fingertips….always, but right now it is swirling and churning in a creative vortex. This may be manifesting in such a way that you are acting quicker than you can plan things out and while that can produce powerfully lucid and spontaneous output, there is also the potential to get sloppy and forget when to get a reality check. Do not be the force of undoing in your ventures (unless you want to). Check in with a trusted ally, be discerning with your creative products, keep an eye on your moveable assets, and be mindful of your health….and enjoy…
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22)
Sexual inventoy time? It can be an empowering act to take a considered, conscious, stock of your desires, emotions, and highest truths in regards to your sexual drive and history. This is just not at all (or much/maturely) valued in our society, and yet is so important and fundamental to our experiences in these bodies and lives. One of the reasons I think it might be important to take this inventory now is the eclipsed moon (reactions) in your solar 5th House, is in a Grand Trine with Jupiter (expansion) and Mars (sex drive). A Grand Trine can act like a closed circuit, so these energies are mingling with each other quite intimately. Use the key words provided and ask: What are you saying to each other?
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
How much or how often have you considered whether your reactions to daily stimuli: work, friends, family, nation, weather, news, nature…are yours or simply the way that you have reacted day after day, year after year until it has become a reflex. You’re not alone, I know you know, we all do this, it’s part of the human experience. It’s also part of the experience to evolve and as part of that evolution to investigate these automatic responses, verify their source if possible (in a general sort of way) and develop new coping skills if determined. This eclipse period is focused very closely in the realm of home…a place where for better or worse, many of these reactions are first conditioned and where de-conditioning may need to begin.
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
It can be an exercise is consciousness expansion to remain open to any idea no matter how crazy it may seem. “Conspiracy theorists” get a bad rap (intentionally—yeah, I know that sounds like I think it’s a conspiracy) for ideas that are so “out there”, however, they are at the same time engaging in a process of creative, open imagination, the kind with which genius can emerge. There’s a cunning sort of symbolism in your chart that makes for crazy thinking that I would encourage you to go with. You may just start to make sense to you-self in a way that you never knew was possible. The only limits you should put on your mind is to not put any limits on your mind.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
In Hermann Hesse’s Siddhartha, Siddhartha explained to his old friend Govinda, late in their lives, why he valued things over words: things are tangible and real and appear to share the same unity of experience; the stone he held in example was one with him. Words, teaching and thinking were murkier and seemed tied more to the suffering of the particular human experience and that particularity made it an act of separation and therefore a detour away from the singularity of existence. The astrology of the moment seems to be calling you into action, away from words and ideas, and into the tangible world of experience and possession. Let your senses lead the way as you surrender to your earthly home.
Astrologers have been talking about the Pluto/Uranus square, which has been in different stages of activation for the past couple of years, as if it would have powerful effects on the collective, but nothing too earth shattering has occurred…if anything, entrenched power seems more entrenched, and personal autonomy sold out to corporations and politicians/political parties more and more.
Will this eclipse, which involves the generational square, shake up the personal desire to decondition? Will people seek to break the trance of old ideas and cultural norms, ask what beliefs are their own or someone else's…perhaps the biggest question one can ask? Only time will tell. Look to the omens and let's shake it up baby.
