Enchanting Eclipses

Hi Everyone,

Happy Enchanting Eclipses updated for July 2019 ... and by enchanting, I mean life changing, awakening, releasing and actualizing. Your basic adjectives for MAGICAL.

Watch the 8 minute video here with tips on how to leverage this eclipse energy in July 2019.

Seriously, this season of the eclipse is shaping up as fabulous energy to leverage your desires. We can actually say, The force is with you.

What is an Eclipse?

Not just any old new or full moon!

An Eclipse happens when the Sun, Moon and Earth line up with the ecliptic (the apparent path the sun travels around the earth - this is the geocentric perspective). There are two kinds of eclipses:

The first occurs when the Moon stands between the Sun and Earth, cutting off the light of the Sun. This is a Solar Eclipse, and occurs only at the time of a new Moon, when the Sun and Moon form a conjunction near one of the Nodes (meaning it's on the ecliptic).

Enchanting EclipsesThe second is when the Earth stands between the Moon and the sun, putting a shadow over the moon, cutting off its light. This is a Lunar Eclipse, and occurs only at the time of a Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in opposition, close to the Moon's nodes.

Here is a quick tutorial about the transits of the moon. At 4 min you can see a visual demonstration of the phenomenon of an eclipse.

Eclipse Times

Here are the times of the upcoming eclipses. Just note with the 'timing' of eclipses they can be felt 3 days before to 3 days after OR (and this goes into backward causation) 30 days (+ or - 3 days) BEFORE or 30 days (+ or - 3 days) AFTER. We'll do an entire course on astrology and backward causation this year, if we have the requests).Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 9.05.39 AM

Why Enchanting?

I'm calling these eclipses enchanting because of the positive, supportive and flowing aspects created on the Lunar Eclipse. You can check out Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto below. These heavy weights of the horoscope are standing by for YOUR instructions, ready and willing to serve. On the Solar Eclipse, Neptune is trine the sun and moon, near exact. You can't get more magical than that!

SolarEclipse_July_2019What to Do on the Enchanting Eclipses?

Magic.

You do your magical manifesting by putting awareness on 1) what you desire 2) see how it is already here 3) relax, let go and be grateful.

I like to start with WHERE in the chart the eclipse is happening. What house(s). You can look at your natal chart houses, and also the solar houses (see Solar Chart Solutions). They count! As an example, take a look at my natal chart in the gallery below.

The lunar eclipse has the moon on Saturn/Pluto sextile Neptune and opposite Venus, a time to release tolerations in relationships of all kinds and move forward in new and creative ways. Whatever has been holding you back, it's time to let that go.

LunarEclipse_Ju;y_2019This enchanting eclipse is inviting us to release (full moon lets go; new moon initiates) any past patterns, especially in the area of life you find the later degrees of Capricorn and Cancer.

So, let's put our thoughts in the comments, and hands up if you want to post your chart and talk about WHERE this is happening for you.

Happy Enchanting Eclipses, everyone!

Welcome to the eclipse season of January 2019. It starts with zinging partial solar eclipse in the powerful sign of Capricorn. If you want to review how to Pre-Pave with the eclipse energy, we have an Align with the Stars recording on the topic here - Pre-Pave with Astrology 2019.

Eclipse Season January 2019 Times

15°  Capricorn is the hot spot for the partial Solar eclipse on January 5th. Remember, this is where you initiate something new, be it a thought, goal or intention.Screen Shot 2019-01-01 at 10.39.32 am

The Partial Solar Eclipse January 5th/6th

Let's look a little closer at the January 5th eclipse. Notice right away there is a strong focus in Capricorn. No less than five planets and the South Lunar Node occupy that sign. Zeroing in, it also becomes clear that Saturn and Pluto are conjunct the eclipse, bringing with them their own particular brand 0f energies. Saturn wants to make it 'real' and Pluto wants to infuse it with power. So, whatever you are intending on this New Moon Eclipse, it wants to be deep, meaningful and have weight. Consequence. Go for a powerful desire this time round.

 

NewMoonEclipse_Jan2019

The Lunar Eclipse January 20th/21st

The second eclipse in January is the lunar or full moon eclipse where we lean toward letting go. Releasing and allowing. This full moon is, of course, conjunct the Lunar Node (as that's what makes it an eclipse).  It is also conjunct Mercury, messenger of the gods and Pluto, lord of transformation. It's possible that what you let go of now, a toleration, belief, habit, will have potent, far reaching results. Check the video if you aren't sure 'where' to find this event in your own chart. You'll be looking for the opposite houses that contain 1° Leo and 1° Aquarius.

The glyphs look like this:

The main thing to remember as you pre-pave this energy for 2019 is that we initiate on the solar eclipse and release on the Lunar. And always, keep an ear out for the messages the eclipse season brings. Go through the keyword list below for ideas, or delve deeper into the houses by joining the Open (our Members only) GVA Form.

Quick Eclipse Tips

The eclipse means the moon is conjunct the North Lunar Node and opposite the sun/South Node. Symbolically, it’s a time of culmination and release.

Expect some emotional cleansing, the ‘good for the soul’ kind. You might also find something you’ve been waiting for arrives – the news, the green light, the big opportunity, and if not, you understand where, how, when and why it’s time to regroup. Either way, see it as a msg that progress is possible, and it is! The focus might well be on relationship and there could be a big CHARGE that needs releasing. You could see the light in terms of how to live your connections in a more fulfilling-to-you way.

Remember, if you want to improve your relationships ‘out there’ in the world, improve your relationship to yourself. It all begins with you.

How to go with the wild flow of this eclipse?

First, release those ‘tolerations’. Here’s how Jeannette Maw describes them:

To tolerate something means to “allow the existence of, to permit or endure or put up with something.” This implies that the something (or someone) is less than ideal and tends to drain a person’s energy. Thus, a toleration is often a hindering influence to the vibration. More . . .

Rainer Maria Rilke puts it like this:

It is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves from case to case, indescribably monotonous and unrenewed: it is shyness before any sort of new, unforeseeable experience with which one does not think oneself able to cope. But only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatic, will live the relation to another as something alive.

Go to your chart now and identify which houses are activated by this eclipse, especially the T-Square from Uranus (as discussed on the vid). Those are the areas of like where you can decluter, release, let go and move on, and have eyes for the gifts. Things get exciting, edge even, and take you on your way! Go with it, and evolve.

Ready for the Eclipse Season?

Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-SteinEclipse Season Image by Catrin Welz-Stein

The 2018 Eclipse Season is upon us. Are you ready?

Eclipse Season Dates

The first eclipse of the year is January 31/February 1 – a (Full Moon) Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo linking Sun-Moon-Nodes to Ceres, Venus and Neptune. The last time we had a Lunar Eclipse at this degree was January 1999.

This current eclipse is significant because it is not only a total eclipse, but also a 'blue' moon (second full moon of the month in the northern hemisphere) and a supermoon* or at it's perigee. Think of this as activating and heightening emotions, perspectives and sensations while possibly shortening fuses. This may not be negative for you at all. With awareness, you can use a 'short fuse' to release tolerations, setting free pent up emotions and clearing the air. Just know you might cut a wide swath. Without awareness, there could be fallout.

In your natal chart, attention is placed on opposite polarities like yin and yang, home and career, internal and external, Self and Others. You have a chance to balance life, especially in the houses touched by this eclipse. Namely, the houses where you find 11 Leo and 11 Aquarius. If you need help finding those houses, run through the simple steps below, or give a shout out in the comments.

TIMES for the January 31st/February 1st Eclipse

LA – Wednesday – 5.26 am
NY. – Wednesday – 8.26 am
LON – Wednesday – 1.26 pm
SYD – Thursday – 12.26 am

TIMES for the February 15th/16th Eclipse

February 15/16 is the (New Moon) Partial Solar Eclipse @27 Aquarius. This is a powerhouse time to start new projects, especially in in the area of life ruled by the house activated (see how to find that below).

LA – Thursday – 1.06 pm
NY - Thursday – 4.06 pm
LON – Thursday – 9.06 pm
SYD – Friday – 8.06 am

Eclipse Season in Perspective

In ancient times, eclipses were associated with dramatic events, political, geological or existential. Hence the apprehension many feel when an eclipse is impending. Luckily, it's not the 1400s anymore, and we aren't locked into a single perspective. We decide how we will align with these Sun-moon-node cycles. Most importantly, we focus on the gifts they bring.

By checking where the eclipse falls in your chart, we can be open to the positive, creative change on offer. It's easy to do. Just follow these simple steps.

For the Jan 31sr/Feb 1st Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your favorite software)
  2. Check where 11 Degrees of Leo and 15 degrees of Leo falls
  3. Focus on those HOUSES to see where you will receive your cosmic gifts

For the Partial Solar Eclipse on February 15th/16th:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your fav software)
  2. Check where 27 degress of Aquarius is in your chart
  3. Look at that HOUSE to open to the kick-ass fresh start on offer

Prep for the Eclipse Season Gifts

Ways to prepare for the eclipse opportunities include:

  1. Revisit your core values
  2. Make a list of tolerations to release
  3. Think about home live vs. career - balanced?
  4. Clean and de-clutter the house, or even a drawer
  5. Clear up misunderstandings in relationships
  6. Get more rest
  7. Boost your nutrition
  8. Find more time to exercise
  9. Appreciate what is, just as it is
  10. Amp up self love

Let's talk more about this in the comments.

Happy eclipse season gifts! I'd love to hear how this shapes up for you.

* A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.[1] The technical name is the perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system or more simply full (or new) Moon at perigee.[a]  - Read More....
