AND MORE THAN YOU PROBABLY WANT
TO KNOW ABOUT ECLIPSES …
(JUST SKIP TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE
FORECAST FOR EACH SIGN
FOR THE POWERFUL SCORPIO LUNAR ECLIPSE OF APRIL 25th
the first of THREE eclipses in 90 days!)
. . . . .
First of all, eclipses always come in pairs. And they always come as a new moon and full moon two weeks apart and occur in one set of opposite signs, for example Aries/Libra or Taurus/Scorpio, etc., every five months or so.
Solar eclipses always occur at the time of the New Moon, and lunar eclipses fall during the Full Moon. The solar eclipse New Moon occurs in the same astrological sign where the Sun is currently transiting Earth, while the lunar eclipse Full Moon falls in the opposite sign of where the Sun is currently transiting Earth.
And the House in an individual’s chart in which an eclipse occurs will be the area of life that will receive the focus and likely experience change. The most profound effect takes place when an eclipse aspects a planet or angle in the chart.
Some of the key words for eclipses are unexpected, emphasis, focus and crisis. So, an Eclipse will focus a laser and emphasize, any and all matters related to the House in which it falls and/or planets it aspects – and probably abruptly and/or suddenly. And all eclipses mark both beginnings and endings.
Also, lunar eclipses are more personal and can affect our emotional lives more than solar eclipses. Lunar eclipses are also often about endings and completions, while solar eclipses often reflect external events and are about new beginnings.
Many people are apprehensive (to say the least!) about eclipses because eclipses often bring a crisis or an unanticipated change in our lives. But, however, eclipses also often open exciting new panoramas and bring new people or events into our lives. They are also moments of times of peak intensity, opportunity and an important point in time in our life. And the more awareness we have about an eclipse, the less likely disruption or damage will occur – and the more likely it will give us a needed push toward an awesome new future.
So, although eclipses ultimately present a significant event or change – it’s crucial to recognize that this event or change is necessary, and very often will open new doors and bring wonderful newness and excitement.
And to determine how any eclipse will affect you personally, look to the House where the eclipse falls in your birth chart, as well as any aspects made to planets or significant points in your chart. The affairs of those houses will be activated and will describe how the energy of the eclipse will play out in your life.
Also, it’s usually a good idea to wait a few days on either side of an eclipse before beginning anything new. New activities begun too close to an eclipse may include an unanticipated or surprise factor – and may turn out differently from what we had planned or expected!
With five eclipses coming up in 2013, we all can expect powerful events of change in our lives. To be sure, enormous change is inevitable this year. We can often feel the effects of an eclipse up to three months prior to the eclipse and we can expect to continue to feel the effect for six months or longer following the eclipse.
. . . . .
So, to get specific about this particular Full Moon Lunar Eclipse… it happens at 5 degrees of Scorpio, and will be very potent, possibly explosive, since it is conjunct Saturn and opposite Venus/Mars. Mars and Pluto both rule this Eclipse. So this will likely not be a fluffy, fuzzy eclipse. There will probably be some big changes/endings that are resisted or pushed. And there could be lots of anger and/or frustration over the next month or so in the wake of this Lunar Eclipse.
If you have any planets or angles of your chart in the first 10 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, you’ll be especially impacted. And the birthdays affected will be …
October 27-29th (Scorpio) – a conjunction (0 degrees)
April 24-26th (Taurus) – an opposition (180 degrees)
July 28-30th (Leo) – a square (90 degrees)
January 24-26th (Aquarius) – a square (90 degrees)
. . . . .
