Lunar Eclipse of Aug 7, 2017. A “king” will be challenged who threatens the world order and order will be restored unexpectedly. Fortunate turn of events.

Eclipses are doorways to new consciousness. And since this is a free-will universe, each of us gets to choose whether or not we are willing to walk through that doorway.

Here why…

Solar Eclipses occur when the Nodes of the Moon are within 18 degrees of the Sun or Moon at a New Moon (Solar Eclipse) or 13 degrees of a Full Moon (Lunar Eclipse). The Lunar Nodes are gateways.

Ascending (North) Node – occurs when the Moon is moving, or ascending, North. It brings something towards you, the future is coming.
Descending (South) Node – moving away, letting go, releasing the past.

Eclipse Season is when Sun is within 18 degrees of either side of the Eclipse Degree. So an “Eclipse season” is about 35 days.

This Lunar Eclipse is at 15 Aquarius-Leo. These are FIXED signs and 15 degrees of FIXED signs is a critical degree. This is where energy concentrates. There is a tough road ahead, but also the ability to access resources. This is a focal point and a starting point. (On the 45 degree wheel, 15 degrees of the FIXED signs is on the Aries point.)

Sun, conscious focus. Moon, ego, instinct, feeling our way, intuition, fate. The Moon reflects the light of the Sun. The Moon doesn’t make conscious choices. It’s not rational. It doesn’t choose, it reacts. At Lunar Eclipses life can feel fated as we feel our way. Shifting unconscious belief structures in your life can be times of change that come from deep within. The Sun-Moon opposition of a Lunar Eclipse brings to light conflicts that have a strong emotional charge. If you can’t compromise, you can alienate and estrange yourself from important relationships. At this Lunar Eclipse, the Moon opposes Mars, which can further heat tempers and the likelihood for impulsive actions-reactions. And that can inflame any situation, increasing the potential for creating harm and havoc.

This Lunar Eclipse suggests a positive turn of events, revelations that change everything (Moon trines Jupiter, Sun sextiles Jupiter). Changes may not be negative and can have an unexpected pleasant outcome.

Yet, there is an imbalance as Jupiter-in-Libra exactly squares Pluto-in-Capricorn. There is a strong urge to expand – everything – all your horizons – especially anything that adds to your personal power. You may feel excited and ready to take big risks, and that can work out to your advantage unless your motives are based on greed, revenge, jealousy, obsession and then you can find support receding.

But the challenges you attract now are windows into a deeper understanding of who you are and what you value. If there is an imbalance between seeking power and seeking equality, deep power struggles can result. Pointing the finger in blame will only entrench struggles and not help to create workable solutions. This is not the time to play games. If this wasn’t crucial (Pluto) there would NOT be a trine (harmony) from Jupiter (expansion) in Libra (balance) to the LUNAR Eclipse Moon (the people).

Using power in a threatening way is more likely to backfire (Pluto it Retrograde) than have any effect – other than awaking and turning people OFF. The BIG awakening comes at the SOLAR ECLIPSE.

There is a YOD from Neptune-Pluto to the Sun (Neptune-sextile-Pluto and both are quincunx the Sun – placing the Sun and the Moon at the Neptune/Pluto midpoint). This is a very sensitive YOD – you can sense what’s coming, gain access to your inner self, and make adjustments to help you transform attitudes and make progress.

Now for what’s happening politically in the USA. At the Lunar Eclipse Trump has a Jupiter Return exact on August 5. This means transiting Pluto is square his Jupiter (and also transiting Jupiter since his natal Jupiter and transiting Jupiter are conjunct). The digging into his financial dealings continues. Consequences!

Jupiter, justice, is trine the Moon and square Pluto. This is all tight, so it manifests. The square of Jupiter to Pluto describes legal interrogations, probes that are uncomfortably revealing. The trine to the Moon shows this is beneficial to the people.

For people, this Eclipse can have a positive outcome. It’s the perfect time to perform or participate in a ritual to create peace, prosperity and more positive energy – personally and worldwide. It’s a time we can reach out and bring more positive energy down to Earth.

  1. I totally disagree with your take on these eclipses. To make it all about Trump and his presidency. I think the eclipse could also be interpreted as power being taken away from someone by fraudulent means.

    Also, the eclipse could involve some action by North Korea since they are threatening this country while Democrats and the media are focusing on Russia.

    • With all due respects to your political views, as an astrologer, I would never tell anyone with a Jupiter Return square Pluto and Saturn conjunct Moon and oppose Sun that everything is coming up roses. These are tough transits. There are investigators up his Pluto, and it’s serious (Saturn). Being unable to see our reflections is something that plagues many, including vampires. interesting metaphor. As i said in my blog that was “dismissed” as wrong, “the challenges you attract now are windows into a deeper understanding of who you are and what you value.”

      Yes, North Korea is a problem. So is the path of the coming Solar Eclipse over 3 major geological faults in the USA. I did not choose to get into every possibility. This is my free service/offering to the world. My hope is that it creates a more positive place for everyone, including the plants and animals. And to always keep us opening to love.

      • What a remarkable interpretation. I hope the second part of it that “order will be restored unexpectedly”. I assume the quotation was an ancient interpretation of the eclipse. Sounds like a quatrain from Nostradamus ? Appreciate you not whitewashing difficult transits: right now Uranus is sitting on my natal moon, Pluto is squaring my natal Sun/Mercury and while I know it’ a change to learn and grow, as the song says “It don’t come easy”. Thank you for all you do.

        • As things are unfolding, it would have seemed disingenuous to say August/early September would be a ‘walk in the park.’ not to scare us, just to increase our awareness, both personal and interpersonal. After all, the Moon – LUNAR Eclipse – is trine Jupiter, so worldwide expansion is called for, and can be very beneficial for The People (Moon). Sun/Mercury=Pluto, your voice has power, use it wisely (square) and you can can have a strong influence. Most of us have some challenge at these Eclipses. The US has many, including the fact the Eclipse path goes over 3 major geological faults – and then the Bermuda Triangle. And Trump’s chart and pr chart are extremely challenged. More on that soon… Thanks for your comment 🙂

  2. I of course meant “chance” to learn and grow not “change” . Although it does require some changes so I guess it wasn’t too far off.
