As the Moon passed behind the Earth and was about to exit the night sky (or “leave” as some call it), people from around the world rushed to the nearest sunlight to watch one of the most amazing celestial events of the year. Members of the media in the U.S. and abroad were there to capture the moment and bring it to those of us who couldn’t be there.

Astrology is a fascinating practice for many people, and it’s been around for thousands of years in many cultures. It’s a way of looking at the world, and our role in it, that is very much focused on the future. Astrology can give us a lot of insight into what’s ahead, as well as get us ready for it.

What a cosmic moment! The Earth will pass through the shadow of the Moon for the next 2 hours and 38 minutes. Not only is this an important astronomical event, it is also a powerful astrological one. The eclipse will be felt strongly in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, but will be felt globally during the morning hours of Sunday August 11th.

A mercurial storm is upon us. word-image-18010 When Mercury slows down (as seen from Earth) and prepares to go the other way (Saturday), it lingers in one place for several days. Mercury’s storm is retrograde on steroids like Mercury. The wind is picking up and strange things are starting to happen. Today I was working on a new app that allows me to send blog posts from my phone. When I recorded it, for some reason it was published and not recorded as a draft. When I went back later to edit and add to it, what I had written was nowhere to be found. Then, in the evening, I discovered it in my email – with all kinds of mistakes, typos, etc. Ha ha, just kidding. I hope it helps you! At least I was on time for once! word-image-18011 Mercury retrogrades turn everything upside down and force us to look at things from a different perspective, to think and rethink the areas (sign/house) that the retrograde is moving into.  In this case this happens in the sign of Gemini, which is also the house sign of Mercury. The upcoming Mercury retrograde in Gemini and today’s lunar eclipse force us to examine our thinking and communication patterns, and especially the belief systems on which they are based. It may destabilize the assumptions under which we live our lives, but it is what must be done.  Eclipses lead to a conclusion and a new beginning. We can look back at where we came from and re-evaluate where we want to go. If this eclipse crosses important places or planets in your horoscope, you could have a fresh start.  One door closes, the other opens.  This potential for a radical change of plan or direction is also of global significance, for the nodes are the points of collective destiny. It seems that something we have outgrown has run its course and it is time to go. It can be an idea, a belief, a plan of action….. Or new information that suddenly makes you see things differently.  Look at the house where the eclipse is taking place to see where changes may occur. Sagittarius is related to our life’s work, as are the lunar nodes, so this eclipse promises very significant changes for individuals and society as a whole. word-image-18012 The total blood moon eclipse reaches its peak at 5:45 am Mountain Time, 7:45 am Eastern Daylight Time and 12:45 pm UTC. It will be ready by the time you read this. Oh, good.  We can feel it on a subtle level as it extends months into the future. The main lesson of this lunar eclipse in Sagittarius is this: 1. Let go of expectations. 2. Don’t assume you know everything about everything. There’s always something to learn. 3. Be open to a new direction. You never know. And remember, the Moon Node is the point of liberation. …. and in Sagittarius, this means letting go of certain beliefs that were true for you but are no longer true. (It was Bob Dylan’s birthday a few days ago. Happy birthday Bob!) The moon represents our emotional patterns and our past. And our mother too. It may be a matter of changing how you feel about them. Memories may resurface or tense dreams may arise. Old grudges can disappear when we begin to see things in a broader perspective. Old wounds that come to the surface can now be easily healed and left behind. People we are emotionally attached to can disappear from our lives. Or we just don’t think about it anymore.  In my case, it was the opposite: A very good friend, who I had not seen for many years, came into my life unexpectedly – he moved to the city where I live.  What a surprise! His Sun in Gemini is on my own South Node (my past) – which is now aligned with the current Node axis (NN – future).  The past is on the way to the future! !! Impossible to think of such a thing!!! So watch for synchronicities and changes in perspective. The way you thought things would be or should be may well turn out to be different than they really are. Plans can change. Feelings can change. Truths can be discovered.  Sometimes these reality checks can be difficult, especially if we are still sticking to the old plan. The strong presence of Jupiter brings a positive and optimistic attitude. Everything is expanding.  Believe that whatever will change will change for the better. Even though you can step out of your comfort zone, the light on the horizon is not an oncoming train, but a beacon that shows you the way.   It’s all right, it’s all right. Have faith. You know you want it! word-image-18013 Information/references about Eclipse https://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/news/article/how-to-watch-the-super-blood-flower-moon-total-lunar-eclipse?fbclid=IwAR12feyQll2NLvRKppP35Fol5b9q7fdmQPkfITJvZnkcdI-IslT9LPVt4GkAs the eclipse of August 21, 2017 approaches, astrologers are preparing for it, either by viewing the event in a positive light, such as to try and glean insight into the future, or by preparing to spew forth torrents of negative energy in order to try and steer the world towards their own agenda..

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the solar eclipse affect us astrologically?

A solar eclipse takes place when the moon is directly between the earth and the sun, blocking out the light from the latter. The phenomenon can be viewed in a variety of ways, since eclipses are only partial, and one can only see the whole thing if they are in the right location and looking at the right time. Some eclipse chasers will travel to the right site at the right time, but others will cast a wider net, and view it on a variety of different sites. The summer solstice is a time of celebration for many, but the lack of daylight at this time of year is more a disadvantage than a boon, according to astrologers. The longest day of the year means that astrologers say people are more prone to feel depressed and fatigued. They also say that people are more likely to be more sensitive to sunlight in general. So, what is the best way to get through the eclipse? According to astrology, it could be best to stay indoors, being especially careful what you look at during the eclipse.

How long do the effects of an eclipse last?

Behold the total solar eclipse that swept the country Monday. Every one of the several million people who saw the eclipse from the path of totality was able to experience one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights. As the sun was occluded, the moon’s shadow swept across the continental United States, leaving a swath of darkness in its wake. Because of the angle of the shadow, the totality lasted for just under two minutes. As the earth entered the shadow of the moon on Monday, much of the world was treated to a lunar eclipse. But what is an eclipse? And why is it referred to as an eclipse? Here is a brief explanation for those who may have been wondering.

How will the solar eclipse affect Gemini?

The solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017, will do something no other eclipse has done in nearly 100 years: it will bring together the Gemini and Virgo signs on the horizon. (The August 22nd solar eclipse will bring the Virgo and Libra signs together in a cusp, but this is a rare occasion.) The combination of the two signs gives a Gemini the possibility of finding a lover, or a deep friendship with someone who might help them navigate life’s challenges. The Gemini and Virgo signs are quite similar to each other, and both are ruled by Mercury. Right now the Moon is all the way up there in Gemini, and by the time the eclipse gets to Gemini, it will be well into the morning of the dark side of the Moon. Those born in Gemini tend to be jovial, creative, or both, so it may not be a surprise we are receiving today’s eclipse. Normally, the Moon in Gemini is connected to the ego, making logical decisions, and having a thirst for knowledge. The Moon in Gemini is a thinker. This eclipse might just make it a bigger thinker.
