Summer 2017 Full & New Moons & Eclipses
Bringing together the messages from the Full Moon in Capricorn- 8/9 July, New Moon in Leo at 0 degrees Leo on 23 July, Full Moon eclipse in Aquarius at 15 degrees Aquarius on 7 August and New Moon Total Solar eclipse in Leo on 21 August 2017.
Let’s start with the upcoming Full Moon in Capricorn 8th July Pacific.
Full Moons are all about bringing things to a head or conclusion. They tend to be emotional and makes us more anxiety prone and quick to anger. But…with the Full Moon in Capricorn conjuncting lord of the underworld, and all intense, Pluto…and Mars, planet of action in the opposite sign of Cancer…ruled by the Moon and emotions…we have a hot mess! Ha Ha! It may not feel good and you just want this uncomfortable feeling to go away. Why is it happening? This is a time of purging and letting stuff go that you know is no longer serving who you are…and many are on a path of enlightenment…many more are seeking. If you have been already cleaning things up in your life…then this Full Moon may actually bring you some rewards, your soul may evolve and reach for a higher state of being…you may also benefit financially with Pluto and hidden wealth being opposed by Mars…for SOME. Most likely you’ll need to let go of things, people, places, habits. Rumi quote: Feelings are just visitors, let them come and go.
Okay, so this leads to the New Moon in Leo…at a critical degree point of 0 degrees when all the new energy (Leo) is being presented. Leo is about having fun, being creative (including creating babies and businesses), taking risks and being in love! Lots to pick from…and you could have them all. Your decision will be what you do want to create new at this time…it doesn’t mean you have to have everything ‘new’ sorted out…just what needs to be ‘new’…now that you got rid of the old (from the Full Moon in Capricorn). Rumi quote: When you feel at peaceful joy, that is when you are near truth.
Next up is the Full Moon eclipse in Aquarius…this is important as this is where the South Nodes of the Moon (what we know well and need to stop defaulting too…why, cause it doesn’t help us grow) in the Universe are…and it (naturally) opposes the North Nodes of the Moon of Destiny…where we are all supposed to be heading or at least developing into. Our destiny path in other words. So, this is a time if you’ve not let go of past ‘stuff’…here comes the universe to help.
This can manifest in many ways but, usually things get taken away: jobs, relationships, place you live, stuff! In your heart you will know that it needs to GO. And that it actually feels good on one level. It’s just that you’ll feel a little vulnerable without your crutches. For those that have been working on getting ‘stuff’ out of their lives…and they’ve had issues trying to move it ‘out’? here comes a big helping hand to move it off your path of destiny and allow you to move into what you were always meant to be. This may be a time for some where they say: Finally I get to be me! And it is a rewarding and fulfilling time where doors start opening up. Embrace change and be brave stepping on your path that has your name all over it! At this time and over the coming months (maybe even year) the universe will provide unexpected support when you need it. Have faith and believe! Rumi quote: These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.
A big culminating point is the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, which is a New Moon at 28 degrees Leo on 21 August 2017. This is the universe giving all of us a clean start…creatively this is off the charts! If you are already in a creative career you may produce some of your greatest work. Remember that events, people, new things won’t necessarily all pop up at once. This Total Eclipse will last for at least 6 months. Watch as the pieces fall into place…
Rumi quote: Be foolishly in love, because love is all there is.
If you have not been doing any clearing or cleaning up the Universe will clearly provide you with an opportunity to get on your true path of destiny…it may be uncomfortable. There are many powerful connecting aspects to this Total Solar Eclipse (besides being able to physically see it in many states across the USA) that support a full change in all of us…especially as it relates to shining our light. Being who we are supposed to be…doing what we are supposed to be doing, being with whom we are supposed to be with, being in a place that resonates with our soul. Uranus is providing enlightenment by a very favorable trine with this eclipse and the galactic center has Saturn hovering over it potentially providing structure to messages sent from source, the universe.
Our job is to listen and take the steps we need to be the best we can be…they don’t have to be big. An idea in our mind might be the first thing…then we wrestle with it, talk to friends about it, get expert advice about it and then ‘take action’…knowing one step will truly lead to the next. Lots of folks will take risks they’ve been dreaming about…sometimes for decades! This especially applies to those born with Pluto (transformation required!) exactly at this point of the Total eclipse approximately mid-1950’s to 1957/8 and also those with Uranus (planet of enlightenment opportunities) in their natal charts…folks born approximately 1961, 1962. If you have your own natal chart, look to see where 27-30 degrees of Leo fall (I do tight orbs) 1 degree of Virgo is okay too. That is the area of your life that will be affected. See too if you have any planets here…personal planets will express their nature…for instance, Venus natally at this point of the Total Eclipse in Leo…can mean both a love will leave and/or arrive! All depends if that person is assisting you on your path of destiny…or blocking you.
Rumi quote: Your heart knows the way. Run in that direction.
The total Eclipse in Leo falls in his 8th house of other people’s money or shared resources. He may be provided monies from the Royal vault! He has a Scorpio Jupiter return in the 10th house of career, Oct 2017. Also, an increase in Royal (Jupiter) career- more formalized.
His progressed Sun, Mercury and Venus are all in the 7th house of contracted duty. He is born to be King. His rising sign or Ascendant is Sagittarius, it is ruled by Jupiter – the planet of Royalty. His north nodes of the Moon in Cancer of destiny conjuncts the UK’s chart Midheaven in Cancer. Clearly, his destiny is tied in directly with the UK. He was born on a New Moon Eclipse in Cancer too.
On 24 Oct 2018, the Full Moon exactly conjuncts Queen Elizabeth II Sun and sextiles (provides opportunity) to Prince William’s Sun. This may be a time Queen Elizabeth II sets the stage for Prince William’s next Royal role.
Catherine, his wife does not have a time down for her birth so, we cannot ascertain which house the eclipse falls in for her. We do know, however, that transformational Pluto conjuncts her Sun at the time of the Total Eclipse in Leo. Suggesting her personal transformation will in turn transform others e.g. her children and perhaps her husband.
Prince William may take a more formal role in Royal duties and title to match – Oct 2018. Uranus, planet of surprise and shocks will trine his Moon, then north nodes of the Moon of destiny July 2021. Catherine’s Sun will have Pluto forming a conjunction to it exactly Sept/Oct 2018, indicating a major transformation of herself by those in power (Pluto).
The total Eclipse in Leo falls in his 7th house of contracted duty including marriage, his progressed Moon is also here. He will “feel” the need to have a partnership. His current partner, Meghan Markle has her own north nodes of the Moon in Leo which conjuncts Jupiter (the Royal planet) in the UK chart.
So, Meghan’s own north nodes of the Moon of destiny will be conjunct by the universe’s north nodes of the moon of destiny, in Leo Oct 2018. A turning point moment for her! This present total Eclipse in Leo falls in her 2nd house of earned money and values, including value of self.
There is another Total Eclipse Full Moon on 27 July 2018 in her 7th house of marriage. A Partial eclipse lands on her Ascendant in Cancer 13 July 2018! Bringing “her” into the limelight! Here Sun and Mercury are in Leo – so, she can expect many major changes in her life from August 2017 onwards. Eclipse effects can last 6 months or more.
Perhaps Harry will propose to Meghan when Mercury comes out of retrograde, going direct at the same degree of the August 2017 Total Eclipse in Leo, 28 degrees, on 5 Sept 2017. With the announcement of a wedding and planning for the wedding itself providing lots of welcome distractions. And, a deflected gaze from what Queen Elizabeth is putting in place behind the scenes regarding the future British Royal Family. It will also provide an uplifting of her people anticipating another Royal Wedding.
Of all the royals, Prince Harry will be the one to watch over the coming months and years!
The eclipse falls in his 2nd house of money he makes and values. So a decided change in fortune. Saturn will conjunct Jupiter in his 5th house of children, your own business, games of chance and romance, Dec 2017. New duties and responsibilities (Saturn) in the Royal Family (Jupiter).
Jupiter in Scorpio will conjunct his progressed Moon Jan 2018. Great feelings of joy! Uranus conjuncts the north nodes of the Moon Oct 2018 through May 2019 in his 10th house of career. Sudden, unexpected date with destiny in his career, being a Royal?
Camilla, has the eclipse also falling in her 2nd house of values and earned income (she shares a similar chart to Charles). Her Ascendant at 4 degrees of Leo and Saturn at 9 degrees of Leo and Pluto (generational effect) all are in her first house of self. Her Moon conjuncts the UK Midheaven.
Prince Charles may gain a formal Royal title with his children or child, or may formally start his own business – all reflecting his values. If, and when, Charles becomes King of England his money is passed on to William as Charles accepts a significant increase in pay. Uranus (as mentioned above in Queen Elizabeth II summary) will provide an unexpected development between his mother, the Queen and him, May 2018. His unexpected and unusual destiny will culminate in May 2019 when Uranus conjuncts his own north nodes of the Moon of destiny in his 10th house of career.
The British Royal Family and the upcoming Total Eclipse, New Moon in Leo at 28 degrees Leo 53, 21 August 2017
The total Eclipse is in Leo on 21 August 2017. Leo is viewed as a Royal sign so I thought it appropriate to take a peek on what might be coming up for the British Royal Family around this eclipse and beyond. Leo represents the Good Queen or Good King. Jupiter is the Royal planet.
When comparing charts to the UK I used the 1 Jan 1801 astrological chart, when it was truly the United Kingdom. Of note in this UK chart are: the north nodes of the Moon are in Aries along with two planets in Leo, Saturn (duty and responsibility, rules and regulations) and the Royal planet, Jupiter. A trine by the north nodes of the Moon in Leo in the universe to the UK’s north nodes of the Moon in Aries is happening Mid-March 2018 but the same north nodes in Leo in the universe form a conjunction to the UKs Saturn and Jupiter Oct 2017 and Oct 2018 respectively.
This suggests that not only the Royal Family will have major changes in their structure (Saturn) and Royalty (Jupiter) coming 2017/2018 year but the UK itself will have major changes affecting everyone in the UK.
It goes without saying, the Brexit will contribute to this effect. I’ll be looking at the charts on my computer, you’ll see it on the screen as you are watching this video. I’ve also picked some appropriate pictures of the British Royal Family to share with you too.
Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of England
The total eclipse happens in her 7th house of contracted duty, Neptune conjuncts her Venus in the 1st house suggesting selflessness in love (of her country perhaps). Venus also represents money and Neptune here suggests money problems. Her natal Neptune forms a wide conjunction with her progressed Mercury in her 7th house – cloak of invisibility hiding communications. Pluto hovers around her Capricorn Ascendant but doesn’t form an exact conjunction till March 2018. Pluto will conjunct her south node of the Moon (representing the past) on 23 Feb 2018 and will be in opposition to her north nodes of the Moon of destiny. Suggesting a turning point regarding her destiny and duty. Letting go of past duties is my guess. Before that Jupiter, the Royal planet goes into Scorpio and forms a conjunction to her Midheaven on 24 Jan 2018. The Royal Family and she will be very much in the spotlight!
Presently, her progressed Moon in her 10th house trines her natal Mercury. Uranus will change signs May 2018 and conjunct her Sun exactly on 19 May 2018 in her 2nd house of values and making money.
If she is wise she’ll use this unexpected out of the blue energy of Uranus to herself (Sun) make changes in her career (10th house).
Total Eclipse New Moon in Leo on 21 August 2017
The Galactic Center black hole which is radiating radioactivity has Saturn, in Sagittarius hovering over this area now and at the Total Eclipse, New Moon in Leo 21August 2017. Saturn may be modulating the signal and messages to those that may be receptive.
I feel many folks that were born with Pluto in Leo 28/29 degrees, (mainly 1955-1957/58) are particularly responsive to this energy as it conjuncts with the 21 August 2017 Total New Moon Eclipse in Leo it. So, the ‘opportunity’ is there for those who care to listen. The New Moon Total Eclipse in Leo on 21 August 2017 is at this degree of 28 degrees of Leo forming a conjunction to the North nodes in Leo emphasizes (at least to me) the possible generational effect of transformation of oneself to serve the collective.
This New Moon Total Eclipse in Leo will affect everyone though. The main influence individually will be to follow our path of destiny, creatively…and not to be afraid to reach for where you have always known you were to be. Whether that is a job, relationships (romantic or business), home you live in, habits you want to shun. All this comes up to be reviewed: Is this (person, thing, place) really helping express who I am and why I am here in this lifetime? No? he comes the opportunity to change this with major, favorable effects from Saturn on the Galactic Center, Uranus in Aries and finally, in September a retrograde Mercury going direct on the exact degree of this eclipse: 28 degrees of Leo! There will be many gleeful announcements about the’ change’ folks have finally had the courage make.
Aww, of course the British Royal Family will also have their big announcements too at this time! You will have to wait for my next video that will discuss them.
Enjoy this summer of 2017; it’s going to be awesome to be you…or to be me!
