Eclipse falls on Planets in Birth Chart

An Eclipse falls on one of the Planets in my birth chart.
What does this mean for me?

When an eclipse affects one of the planets in your birth chart, this will have a big meaning in your life and definitely needs to be understood.

Remember, eclipses undam dammed up energies, so whether an eclipse’s effects on you are positive or negative will depend on how well you are on course for your meant destiny in life. It is essential to realize that if you are off course, and eclipse will bring downfall, but of course here we hit the issue of phenomenology, because if your life is off course, then you need collapse of that life-style to have any hope of getting your life on-course again.

So, you do need to take into special note is the Eclipse falls on one of your natal planets.

Essentially, we are talking about the Eclipse Moon falling on one of your natal planets, but we also need to consider other key planets from the eclipse chart and also its Nodal axis or Ascendant falling on one of your natal planets.

Here is a simple ‘one size fits all’ meaning for Eclipse impact on one of your natal planets:

Eclipse impact on:

Your Sun brings out your expression of self and decisiveness. It creates a crisis or a leap forwards. It is time to shine, but you may need to let go of your old life in order to be able to do that. Take action. Do Vision Work and Magical Will work.

Your Moon brings hurt emotional events leading to crisis and vulnerability. Can be rooted in mother or the past. Might involve a move of house or job, of major re-creation of your life to make it reflect your spiritual truth and true self. Life will not be the same again.

Your Mercury can lead to a mental crisis or important rational insights. There could be a trickster energy. There will be a lot of sorting out of your thinking. This could affect friendships and trade issues.

Your Venus creates major crisis or breakthrough in love. Alternatively issues of your finances, inspiration in art, and indeed motor cars can be affected. There could be a fated new love relationship. There could be strong sexual urges. Clear any blocks to love or ‘heart walls’.

Your Mars creates outbursts and arguments. These can be constructive or destructive. Or there could be a surge of physical vitality.

Your Jupiter could bring expansiveness and sense of purpose, inspiration and ideals. You need to take care to keep this sort of expansion properly grounded and supported.

Your Saturn means either golden reaping because you are on course for your true life purpose, or it means professional downfall. This will be a huge milestone and turning point in your life. You will be forced to acknowledge that you must ‘get out of your prison’, or that you must be more realistic and dot the I’s and cross the t’s in your life and get things more grounded. Ideall,y this is the opening to take a seasoned step up. You will be tested around your use of responsibility. Suffering will become a huge and important issue for you to handle correctly. You may receive burdens.

Your Uranus means the Struck Tower card in the Tarot. inspiration, more expansive life or consciousness, revolution. Apparent eccentricity. Beware being heartless. Become the wild child, the free spirit, or the original genius. Ride out the creative wave that has picked you up.

Your Neptune means that you could realize that you are enmeshed in delusion or denial. You could find yourself in a fog. But this eclipse calls you to strip out the delusion.

Your Pluto ideally means empowerment. Face your shadow. Confront your inner demons. gain the strength to face your shadow. It could mean trauma, and the need not to be crippled by fear and your energy could become compulsive, driven or obsessive. You will need to develop ways to confront and understand and heal yourself. You face a personal challenge.

Your Chiron: you need to find healing modalities that will assist you to heal the existential wound indicated by your astrology birth chart. In this process, you could become the healer of others.

Your natal North Node/Rahu: you will become driven to manifest your incarnational life purpose, but you will need to purify this energy if you are to arrive at the destination it points to.

Your natal South Node/Ketu: chasms will open under your life, but with divine purpose to transform or end that life so that you are put in touch with spiritual meaning.

Solar Eclipse 11th August 2018

New Moon Solar Eclipse 11th August 2018 at 09.58 am.

The Sun and the Moon of this eclipse are 24 deg Vedic Cancer (using the sidereal zodiac of Vedic Astrology) in Ashlesha Nakshatra.

18 western Leo (using the Tropical Zodiac of western astrology).

 

 

 

Here is the Video:

And here are the charts:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note that this is the third eclipse in July 2018 / August 2018 eclipse cycle. Usually an eclipse cycle has only two eclipses, so we have to be aware of the fact that July and August 2018 have heavy deep eclipse energies. The ‘window’ of eclipse activity will be much longer than usual. Our Minds and our lives will be affected by eclipse energies. We will have to sustain awareness of the possible dangers of this. And we will also have to find the buried gold meaning for our spiritual awareness, personal empowerment, success and happiness.

There will be positive results from this Eclipse if we are ‘on course’ for our true life path, or the eclipse consequences will be negative if our life is ‘off course’ for its spiritual meaning. Eclipses deeply polarize and internalise our life issues, and we must face our personal and collective shadows around these issues. If you cling to your false securities and stuck patterns, or resist the call of your evolution now, then these eclipses will leave you at best a robot pursuing a mechanical rump of a non-real life, or your life circumstances will quite possibly disintegrate because you are not living in accord with your truth.

So, with three eclipses in a run, July / August 2018 is a period to stand firm in the midst of what might feel like quite a storm, not give way to fear, not go limp, but be truly open to change. Cope with self-doubt and with felt loss of direction. An Eclipse may propel you to a needed new direction.

Please do remember, that Astrology is here to give us good quality perception of the energies and possibilities coming our way. It must never be formula or slack ‘impulse of the moment’ channelling. For our own good, our guiding astrological declaration needs to be intelligent, inspired and developmental. We are not here to experience these powerful July 2018 astrology energies passively or fatedly. Guided by good astrological declaration, we are here to ask these sort of questions:
How can I heal?
How can I empower myself?
How can I use these events to burn negative karmas?
How can I use these energies, including the terrible ones, to powerfully and beautifully manifest that very special spark of incarnational destiny that drove my soul to incarnate to achieve here in this particular lifetime?

Note that this eclipse report, like all my astrology readings and courses combines psychodynamic Western astrology (using the Tropical Zodiac) with the Incarnational Life Purpose focussed Vedic Astrology (that will only give accurate results if you use the Sidereal Zodiac with Lahiri Ayanamsha, or the degrees of difference from western Tropical zodiac).

I combine the nine planets of ancient Vedic Astrology with the newer discoveries whose energies have entered western consciousness over the last two and a half centuries: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, plus, most necessarily: the Wounded Healer: Chiron.

N.B. You really do need to check how the chart for this eclipse interacts with your natal chart. This way, you can understand and prepare for these Eclipse energies that will be entering your consciousness and entering your life. We have to try to deal with Eclipses negative consciousness and life effects, and we have to work out their positive divine meaning and embrace that.

Please note that the Dates and Times for this report are set to Ireland. Check with www.dateandtime.com  for your local variations.

Eclipse Falls in a Key House in Astrology Birth Chart

An Eclipse Falls in a Key House in my Astrology Birth Chart How do I understand the meaning?

Find out where is the Moon of an upcoming Eclipse is in relation to your birth chart. You do need to know and understand this.

And you’d also need to look at where the eclipse Nodal axis and Ascendant are, and also check out where the significant planets of the particular upcoming eclipse chart are, in relation to your own birth chart.

One of the key things to look for are: what house does the eclipse fall in in my birth chart?

You can calculate the House number from Ascendant (called Lagna in Vedic Astrology) or secondly you can also calculate the position of an upcoming eclipse from your natal Moon (Janma) in your Astrology chart. But note that calculation from Ascendant tends to give the stronger prediction meaning.

I always check out an eclipse position in relation to both the Vedic birth chart (which must use the Sidereal Zodiac, for accuracy and is geared to declaration of your Incarnational Life Purpose),
and also:
the Western birth chart (which uses the Tropical Zodiac and declares our psychological self, with extra meanings to incorporate the Gods of Change, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto and Chiron your Wounded Healer).

So, here are some very brief one size fits all ‘standard meanings’ of what will be the effect in your life when an Eclipse falls in one of the Houses of your birth chart:

Remember, eclipses undam dammed up energies, so whether an eclipse’s effects on you are positive or negative will depend on how well you are ‘on course’ for your meant destiny in life.

It is essential to realize that if you are off-course, the eclipse will bring downfall, you need a collapse of that lifestyle in order to have any hope of getting your life on-course again.

And if we are on-course for our incarnational life purpose, then the eclipse will undam blocks and open up possibility and lead to golden reaping for us.

Eclipse effect on the Houses of your Vedic birth chart:

Here are some very simple, selective, ‘one size fits all’ buzzwords as to the meaning of an eclipse falling into any of your Houses in your birth chart:

(It is the sidereal zodiac Vedic birth chart that gives the surest result, though we must also look at the psychological declaration of your Western Astrology birth chart as well):

Eclipse in1st House: big shock or empowerment to issues of personal health and presence in the world, personal health, your appearance. Positive transformation of position in the world or Downfall.

Eclipse in 2nd House: big change in income, issues to do with mouth and teeth, your voice, value issues.

Eclipse in 3rd House: big change is issues of skills, talents, initiative, writing/communication, siblings.

Eclipse in 4th House: major change in issues to do with mother or home, domestic patterns, activities and happiness. Some change to do with car. Effect on your mother.

Eclipse in 5th House: earthquake in relationship with children, or in matters of creativity, or in romance, or in spiritual matters and past life merit. Effect on your children

Eclipse in 6th House: shakeup in areas such as legal issues, handling of enemies, personal health and immunity.

Eclipse in 7th House: changes in the balance between yourself and spouse.

Eclipse in 8th house: Changes in shared Financial Arrangements, Inheritance, Physical or emotional Vitality, or Metaphysical Studies.

Eclipse in 9th house: shakeup in area of beliefs, guru/teacher, higher learning.

Eclipse in 10th House: Major shakeup in career pending.

Eclipse in 11th House: major change/shake-up in issues of gains, profits, goals, ambitions, associates.

Eclipse in 12th House: huge effect on issues of loss, institution issues/connections, residence abroad.

The Difference between a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse

What is the difference between a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse?

A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is between the Sun and Earth. So, in a Solar Eclipse, the Moon is cutting off the light of the Sun. The Moon is covering the Sun.

 

 

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth stands between the Moon and the Sun.

 

 

So, with a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is cutting off the light of the Sun from the Moon. So, this means that we see the dark disk of the shadow of the Earth crossing the surface of the Moon, and, indeed, that shadow can black out the Moon totally.

More on the difference between a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse

Solar Eclipses tend to be more ‘factual’ and they often bring bright new beginnings.
Lunar Eclipses tend to be more emotional and catastrophic or tumultuous and they bring about the death of something with the possibility for rebirth.
N.B. You absolutely do need to check how the chart for these eclipses interacts with your natal chart.
This way, you can understand and prepare for these Eclipse energies that will be entering your consciousness and entering your life.

We have to try to deal with Eclipses negative consciousness and life effects, and we most definitely also have to work out their positive divine meaning and embrace that.

Eclipses are ‘wild cards’. Eclipses send a glaring ray of truth onto an area of your life. With Eclipses, something ends and something new begins. But normally speaking, don’t take big hasty decisions immediately in the depth of eclipse time, wait for calmer more mature times before confirming your eclipse decisions or insights. There will be positive results if we are on-course for our true life path, or the eclipse consequences will be negative if our life is off-course for its spiritual meaning.

Eclipses deeply polarize and internalise our life issues, and we must face our personal and collective shadows around these issues. If you cling to your false securities and stuck patterns, or resist the call of your evolution now, then these eclipses will leave you at best a robot pursuing a mechanical rump of a non-real life, or your life circumstances will quite possibly disintegrate because you are not living in accord with your truth. An Eclipse may propel you to a needed new direction.
Please take a look at my Video Here Regarding This Difference between a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse

We feel eclipse energies as they are building. We feel them at the time of the Eclipse. And they last for longer than just the eclipse moment. The effects of lunar eclipse are pretty immediate. The effects of solar eclipse take longer. Note that eclipse’s effects are even stronger when another planet later on transits across the degree area of the earlier eclipse. Eclipses can leave a patch of stagnant energy in the heavens. This will be triggered if another planet subsequently transits through this patch.

Maybe the Eclipse will smash structures in your life that have outlived their usefulness for your destiny. Or maybe the Eclipse will smash situations that are wrong for you true life path – painful though this may be both to experience and to understand. And note that maybe these eclipses will offer you opportunities for shared purpose with your loved ones to find their higher spiritual purpose.

Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 The biggest eclipse

Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 The biggest eclipse cycle of the 21st Century begins

This Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 is at 26 Vedic Gemini using the Sidereal Vedic Zodiac. It’s in Punarvasu Nakshatra (ruled by Jupiter).
In western astrology, it is at 20 deg Cancer using the Tropical zodiac.
Exceptionally this year, this is a three eclipse cycle, the second Eclipse being 27th July, and the third being 11th August.
And note that the second eclipse on 27th July is the longest eclipse of the 21st Century, and together the three of them will keep Eclipse energies running in our minds and in our lives for a record length of time. It’s a longer window of eclipse energy than usual! How do eclipses affect the planets in your chart ?

Here are the Charts:

Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 vedic chart

Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 vedic chart 2

 

 

 

 

This Eclipse is Opposition Pluto – Really Big Note: Note that that the Sun/Moon of this eclipse are exactly opposition Pluto. So, check if this Eclipse and ‘death and rebirth’ intense power of planet Pluto affect your natal chart or natal planets or a sensitive house. If so, there will be big effects. With Pluto in such exact opposition to this Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018, we are offered profound transformation: challenging or harmonious; if the Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 chart strongly interacts with our own individual birth chart.

And here is my video:

Mercury Issues: Because this eclipse is in Vedic Gemini, communication skills and information issues in your life could experience breakthrough, and you could cooperate with that trend if you feel it coming your way. Gemini, and also Punarvasu Nakshatra (Vedic Lunar Sign) where this Eclipse occurs, need to be understood. There is a danger of asking questions rather than wanting answers. Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, is fickle and androgynous and changeable. There’s versatile adaptable glissando. Mercury’s over-questioning can trash needed action and direction. Mercury is illogic as well as logic. Our personal standing and power an energy can be squandered if we use its energy for Mercury-style ‘politically correct’ futile FaceBook posts on social and political issues that are really unacknowledged working out of our personal issues, that more properly should be a focus for real healing and empowerment work, or for focus on shocking scandals or conspiracy theories that don’t really lie at the heart of our life issues! This is damaging to you because, magically, its drain to parade and posture and identify with factions, rather than empower. Mercury can really harm our Mars for example.

In fact, crucially, we have to learn to draw on the two hemispheres of our brain.

I’ll include a couple of personal notes, so you can see how to build analysis of how an eclipse effects your chart and your life: the Ascendant of this eclipse conjuncts my natal Uranus, and this will enhance the inspirational revolutionary current that has been running in my life and work.
And, secondly on a personal note, Uranus of this eclipse is conjunct my nodal axis, and I feel a destined revolution running in my work and life, my astrology readings, the expansion of my various courses. Uranus‘ higher meaning is inspirational revolution.

So, note that with Eclipses, and this Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018, there will be positive results if we are on-course for our true life path, or the eclipse consequences will be negative if our life is off-course for its spiritual meaning. Eclipses deeply polarize and internalise our life issues, and we must face our personal and collective shadows around these issues. If you cling to your false securities and stuck patterns, or resist the call of your evolution now, then these eclipses will leave you at best a robot pursuing a mechanical rump of a non-real life, or your life circumstances will quite possibly disintegrate because you are not living in accord with your truth.

So, July 2018 is definitely a month to stand firm in the midst of what might feel like quite a storm, not give way to fear, not go limp, but be truly open to change. Cope with self-doubt and with felt loss of direction. Please see my separate Blog and Video of my Astrology and Healing Magazine for July 2018, and the separate Blogs and videos for the two other Eclipses of this present eclipse cycle: The Solar Eclipse of July 13th and the Solar Eclipse of August 11th. An Eclipse may propel you to a needed new direction.

Please do remember, that Astrology is here to give us good quality perception of the energies and possibilities coming our way. It must never be formula or slack ‘impulse of the moment’ channelling. For our own good, our guiding astrological declaration needs to be intelligent, inspired and developmental. We are not here to experience these powerful July 2018 astrology energies passively or fatedly. Guided by good astrological declaration, we are here to ask these sort of questions:
How can I heal?
How can I empower myself?
How can I use these events to burn negative karmas?
How can I use these energies, including the terrible ones, to powerfully and beautifully manifest that very special spark of incarnational destiny that drove my soul to incarnate to achieve here in this particular lifetime?

Note that this report, like all my astrology readings and courses combines psychodynamic Western astrology (using the Tropical Zodiac) with the Vedic Astrology which is essentially based on our incarnational Life Purpose, and will only give accurate results if you use the Sidereal Zodiac (with Lahiri Ayanamsha for the degrees of difference from western Tropical zodiac). I combine the nine planets of ancient Vedic Astrology with the newer discoveries whose energies have entered western consciousness over the last two and a half centuries: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, plus, most necessarily: the Wounded Healer: Chiron.

This is a Solar Eclipse. Note that Solar Eclipses and this Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 tend to be more ‘factual’ and bring bright new beginnings, whereas Lunar Eclipses tend to be more emotional and bring about the death of something with the possibility for rebirth.

Lunar Eclipse of 27 July 2018

Lunar Eclipse of 27 July 2018 – The longest Eclipse of the 21st Century

There’s a Lunar Eclipse of 27th July 2018, and this Eclipse is the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century (2001 to 2100). It’s a Big One. Huge. Some UK newspapers have reported an ‘end of time’ nature for this Moon. It won’t be that, but its effect in our lives, politics and the earth will be great and long-lasting. It’s the longest eclipse for a hundred years, lasting for 1 hour and 43 minutes, and this means its effects will be felt for a long time to come. It will be visible across much of Europe and Asia, and in Australia, southern parts of North America, and South America.In UK/Ireland and elsewhere, this Moon will be a ‘blood moon’ where the moon has a red tinge.

Eclipses are ‘wild cards’. Eclipses send a glaring ray of truth onto an area of your life. With Eclipses, something ends and something new begins. But normally speaking, don’t take big hasty decisions immediately in the depth of eclipse time, wait for calmer more mature times before confirming your eclipse decisions or insights. A big eclipse like this 27th July Lunar Eclipse has an earthquake effect. If it interacts strongly with our birth chart, we will experience the eclipse strongly. The effects will be very long-lasting. There will be positive results if we are on course for our true life path. Or, the eclipse consequences will be negative if our life is off-course for its spiritual meaning.

Eclipses deeply polarize and internalise our life issues, and we must face our personal and collective shadows around these issues. If you cling to your false securities and stuck patterns, or resist the call of your evolution now, then these eclipses will leave you at best a robot pursuing a mechanical rump of a non-real life, or your life circumstances will quite possibly disintegrate because you are not living in accord with your truth.

So, July 2018 is a month to stand firm in the midst of what might feel like quite a storm, not give way to fear, not go limp, but be truly open to change. Cope with self-doubt and with felt loss of direction. Please see my separate Blog and Video of my Astrology and Healing Magazine for July 2018, and the separate Blogs and videos for the two other Eclipses of this present eclipse cycle: The Solar Eclipse of July 13th and the Solar Eclipse of August 11th.

An Eclipse may propel you to a needed new direction. But in this eclipse cycle there are three: The effect of the three July /August 2018 eclipses will be huge.

But I actually also feel, that July and the present phase should be dedicated to Uranus the Enlightener. This is because in fact, Uranus is caught up with the Eclipses, and with the Mars-Ketu Conjunction, which is another very big feature of energy overload July, and Uranus has only fairly recently entered Vedic Aries – a huge new energy not seen since the run-up to the Second World War. Uranus takes 84 years to orbit, remember. So, I feel I have much to thank for Uranus’ waves of energy of Inspiration and Revolution, now. There is magic and Healing to be found for humanity now – If each of us humans can now learn how to grasp hold of the magic.

And please do remember, that Astrology is here to give us good quality perception of the energies and possibilities coming our way. It must never be formula or slack ‘impulse of the moment’ channelling. For our own good, our guiding astrological declaration needs to be intelligent, inspired and developmental. We are not here to experience these powerful July 2018 astrology energies passively or fatedly. Guided by good astrological declaration, we are here to ask these sort of questions:

  • How can I heal?

  • How can I use these events to burn negative karmas?
  • How can I use these energies, including the terrible ones, to powerfully and beautifully manifest that very special spark of incarnational destiny that drove my soul to incarnate to achieve here in this particular lifetime?
  • Note that this report, like all my astrology readings and courses, combines on the one hand psychodynamic Western astrology (using the Tropical Zodiac) with Vedic astrology on the other hand: the Incarnational Life Purpose focussed Vedic Astrology (that will only give accurate results if you use the Sidereal Zodiac with Lahiri Ayanamsha, or the degrees of difference from western Tropical zodiac).

I combine the nine planets of ancient Vedic Astrology with the newer discoveries whose energies have entered western consciousness over the last two and a half centuries: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, plus, most necessarily: the Wounded Healer: Chiron.

So, what is the difference between a Solar and a Lunar Eclipse?
Note that a Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is between the Sun and Earth. So, in a Solar Eclipse, the Moon is cutting off the light of the Sun. The Moon is covering the Sun.

Solar Eclipse

 

 

But a Lunar Eclipse like this one on July 27th, occurs when the Earth stands between the Moon and the Sun. so with a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is cutting off the light of the Sun from the Moon. So, this means that we see the dark disk of the shadow of the Earth crossing the surface of the Moon, and, indeed, that shadow can black out the Moon totally.
Lunar Eclipse
