The Eclipses Are Coming - A Triple Wallop! July and August, 2009

By Janet Moon

July 7, July 21, and August 5, 2009

bring changes, good and bad. Usually they come in pairs twice a year,
but this summer we will have 3 eclipses: a lunar, a solar, and then
another lunar. Most of us find changes difficult, even if they are
positive. With all the changes we have been dealing with over the past
year due to the collapse in the economy, I'm not sure any of us are
really going to want to deal with any more. Well... like it or not,
change is coming. Do we want to sit around and cry, or do we want to
accept the challenges and grow into richer and more spiritually healthy
human beings? It's our choice.

The first two eclipses will be in
Cancer and Capricorn, and the third will reflect between Leo and
Aquarius. (I have good news for Leo's and Aquarians, this will be your
last set of eclipses. It will be another 8 years before they come back
to your signs.) The lunar eclipses will be penumbral eclipses, which
means that just the edge of the earth's shadow will be crossing the
moon. But, the solar eclipse on July 21 will be a total eclipse, so it
will pack a strong wallop.

The first eclipse will be a lunar
eclipse on July 7th at 5:38 AM EDT. If we were only dealing with the
eclipse itself, we may find that the event would be less dramatic. But,
there will be other stellar aspects happening over the days leading up
to the eclipse, so get ready for drama. The eclipse will consist of the
Sun in Cancer at an opposition to the Moon in Capricorn, and Saturn
over in Virgo will be making a positive aspect between the two.
Normally I would say that there could be some positive changes in
business and at home if we've been working hard. But, Mars the ruler of
energy and sex will be fighting with Neptune and Jupiter, and Venus,
the goddess of love, will be upset with Pluto. There could be lots of
fights, disputes, auto accidents, jealousy, and financial losses on top
of the eclipse energy.

The second eclipse on July 21st (July 22nd
Europe) at 10:35 PM EDT will be a total solar eclipse at 29 degrees
Cancer. The 29th degree is a karmic point, and it can bring out the
heroes. People born with their suns or rising signs at the 29th degree
of any sign often like to rescue people. This time, not only do we have
a powerful eclipse at a karmic degree, its also going to be aspecting
Uranus and Pluto. And, we have other planets doing their things at the
same time. There is a good chance that relationships will breakup and
investments will show major losses around this time. But, there is also
a chance that some will "take the bull by the horns," and initiate
major changes in their lives. Some of those changes will be absolutely
brilliant, but some will be dealing with major losses. Its not unusual
that people who are ill and tired often pass over during eclipses, but
this eclipse may bring even more deaths... and some not anticipated.

third eclipse will be the final eclipse in Leo and Aquarius on August
5th. It will be at 8:39 PM EDT, and it will be visible from about the
eastern 2/3 of the US. I would call it more of a normal eclipse, since
it won't be aspecting any other planets. And, the other planets of the
zodiac will not be at war with one another. Its still going to be an
eclipse, and there will be changes to deal with. But, after the
previous 2 eclipses, this eclipse may feel more like an aftershock.
And, if you want to do something different, with Leo and Aquarius
involved, throw an eclipse party!

Okay, now its time to pull out
our natal charts and see how these eclipses are going to affect us
personally. First off, look and see which of your houses the eclipses
will be occurring in. That will be the major determiner of what area of
your life will be affected. Next, if the eclipse makes an aspect to a
power point (ascendant, nadir, descendant, or mid-heaven), it could
bring some tremendous changes, especially a conjunction or square. If
any of the eclipses aspect one of your inner planets (Mars on in), then
the changes will be personal. Which planet is being aspected and the
house that the planet is located in will determine what aspect of your
life will probably be dealing with those changes. If the eclipse is at
an aspect to one of your outer planets, it will probably affect you
more on a community or generational level. (Like, maybe a bunch of the
baby boomers decide to retire early. I have not examined the ephemeris
that closely to give any absolute predictions.)

The eclipse on
July 7th will be at 15 degrees 32 minutes Capricorn. That means the
Moon will be at 15 degrees Capricorn, and the Sun will be at 15 degrees
Cancer. Any planets or points between 13 and 17 degrees (within a 2
degree tolerance) in Cancer and Capricorn are going to be dealing with
the biggest changes. Planets or points in between 13 and 17 degrees in
Libra and Aries are going to be dealing with unwanted changes, and some
of those changes may be forced upon them. Planets and points between 13
and 17 degrees in Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus, and especially Virgo, may
find that they actually initiate some wanted changes.

Our total
solar eclipse on July 21st will be at 29 degrees 26 minutes Cancer.
Cuspy Cancer/Leo's are going to be dealing with a lot of drama during
this time. Any planets between 27 degrees and 1 degree on the cusps
between Libra and Scorpio, and Aries and Taurus are not going to be
happy at all. Be careful, there could be accidents. Planets or points
between 27 degrees and 1 degree on the cusps between Capricorn and
Aquarius, may find that they are doing the rescuing. The points and
planets on the cusps between 27 degrees and 1 degree between Scorpio
and Sagittarius and Pisces and Aries may actually see some positive
changes from this eclipse.

And, the final eclipse on August 5th
will be at 13 degrees 35 minutes Aquarius (with the Sun at 13 degrees
35 minutes Leo). Planets and power points between 11 and 15 degrees in
Aquarius and Leo will be dealing with the biggest changes. Planets and
points between 11 and 15 degrees in Scorpio and Taurus will be griping
about the changes they have to deal with. Planets and points in
Sagittarius, Aries, Libra, and Gemini could be dealing with fallout
from other people's changes.

We can often feel the effect of
eclipses up to a month before the actual eclipse, and to give you a
perspective, its been said that the energy of an eclipse is
approximately 10 times that of a full or new moon. If you are not sure
how the eclipses will be affecting you, contact an astrologer. Even a
10 or 15 minute reading should clear up most of your confusion.
