Secrets Of The Solar Eclipse

Filed in New Moons

MOEBIUS

So i would LOVE to be more mysterious and complex about this – a secret spell, a ritual, some myth exhumed from the vault and if we apply the perfect mantra when Luna aligns with asteroid Persephone at the perfect angle with on point numerology – wham: supernatural energy unleashed, enlightenment and riches + zero cellulite. Occult only means hidden and what better transit than Mercury Retro in the sign of the Sacred Whore to go snooping?

However, we need to get a grip here. Yes this is a New Moon that is also a Solar Eclipse so think super heated endings, beginnings and makeovers where-ever you have 9 degrees of anything Mutable, especially Virgo. And being proactively candid and take-charge is better than stewing – Mars is supported by rad planet Uranus in bold Aries.

But really, the KEY theme of this Eclipse is that is concentrates ALL the energy of the Saturn-Neptune square ongoing since October 2015.Β  And if you are a subscriber, you will know the themes of this by now. We can’t shun Saturn. You don’t feel a drop of rain, hear thunder and order another bottle of wine because you think your straw sun shelter roof will withstand the storm.

You don’t ignore obvious symptoms of dysfunction even when you wish it was not so with that romance, business relationship, addiction, whatever.Β  And you don’t stick with an obviously tired old trope that no longer aligns with your narrative. Or assume that more time/money/love/attention against logic will help you recover sunk losses.

Getting a grip with the mature, adult, pragmatic aspects of Saturn helps you realize the pure raw dream and shamanic potential of Neptune. The real magic. And if this involves wearing the short term pain of frugality or life without the sugar rush of a Zombie fake love affair so that you get long term gain so be it.

The secret is that there IS no secret. Only the Law of Awesome – which is in your domain.

Eclipse insisted of 60 hours in hospital with Virgo-Gem son who dove into the River of Neptune then cracked his head on Saturn’s stair rail. Platinum level tour of Ecliose Zone included ventilator, ICU, light coma, zillion dollar scans head to toe- concussion and broken nose were parting gifts from Saturn. Eclipse occurred as Mercury made crucial hits- Timing is everything. Venus in Libra scanned over his Sun and pulled him from the depths of Hades. Worst early AM call I ever got. “Your son fell and hit his head…” Three hours later- at bedside- best day of my life… Read more »

Hey, does anyone have any visualization tips they’d like to share? I feel an intense need to do this on this New Moon day, and I’m kind of at a loss.

Amongst everything that’s been moving and shaking, I spied a beautiful turtle in the rain next to my porch on the way out of the house. I’ve been wondering where my animal signs were, I’m pretty sure the last one was the beaver that swam at me last June or so. Yes, Mr. Beaver, I have been working my ass off. Yes, Ms. Turtle, it is always time to honor the earth and it’s also time for day to day peacefulness.

Felt the sting of this eclipse this morning.

Did a tarot reading last night and it was BANG ON. Trust those golden instincts and GLIDE ON THROUGH eclipse season.

Damn, I LOVEEEEEEEEE the tarot when done on the new moon.

Happy Solar Eclipse! Hope everyone got their Venusian beauty rest πŸ™‚ Mine came right on time. “But what is happiness but the simple harmony between a man & the life he leads” -Albert Camus, Scorpio. So spaketh the Oracle. In the darkest hours before the new moon, I listened to a lecture from (Cap Sun/Virgo Moon/Sagg Rising) Alan Watts. The gist: You cannot improve yourself, & your very desire for improvement is proof that you’re beyond any chance of ever being any better than you already are. Huh! I slept like a fuqing rock after that. No tossing & turning… Read more »

And a feliz solar eclipse to you Ankh!

Happy Solar Eclipse – New Moon!

I slept so well that night, didn’t even notice the pains or the child creeping into the bed.

Feels like a new dawn this morning.
I sat and saw this eclipse-new moon energy soaked in the blue ray, with lots of little tasks being worked on in harmony like some symphony of odd syncopation that sounded perfect.

I feel that quote about not being able to improve – don’t strive, just be. Thx.

Yeah I’m ok. The Cap won’t go away tho. Dunno why. He says he loves me or whatever. Love shmuv. I told him to show me the freakin money (metaphorically speaking) if I’m to waste one more nano second on the whole thing.

And I’m fed up with people whinging at me. Everyone is whinging at me lately. The Cap. The cat. My mum … whinge whinge fucking whinge.

Great post. This is quite strong in my chart right now because I have native saturn virgo too and the eclipse is almost exactly conjunct jupiter, I am working very hard right now and having to up my game not in terms of talent but in terms of structure and international business, the other is I am working with a hypnotherapist who is genuinely an amazing person and I am hoping to see results here too.

Ugh
Slept badly despite feeling exhausted and have woken up with sore throat and feeling ugh. I guess this eclipsse being so close to my sun, Mars & Merc and in my 10th makes it super hard to switch off Virgo thinky head. It’s not exactly monkey mind but it’s weird when you dream to do lists and correcting your own impulsive behaviour !
Something is definitely shifting gears here.

Saturn don’t desert me now. I will worship at your alter come the new moon. I have gone nuts on my finances with professional help and now have a true budget which actually worries me more as it shows what little wriggle room I have. But its all about your attitude determining your altitude right?. So budget/saturn says i can afford to fly home for a quick trip then I will. Saturn also says grow up and face up to your poor alcohol drinking habits. Getting professional help on that too. Wow I might just join the adult world soon… Read more »

All I know is over the past several days a profound peace and confidence has taken over. I’ve planted seeds, I will continue to do so, they will arrive and thrive in perfect time. In the meantime, use the downtime to just enjoy books, art, exercise, food, nature and to SAVE. Because one day soon I will be ULTRA busy, so, be in the now. Said the Taurus Cow ;D <3

Haha. How very Merc Rx! πŸ™‚

The night Merc went retro I had a dream about an old Virgo ex that I haven’t seen in 18 years!! He asked me to call him and I said “No, you call me”. Then he asked if my number was still the same.

I have no interest in going back and he’s married anyway. But it was a sweet dream.

Hey astro-peeps, I thought in the midst of dark moon merde you would get a smile from this Merc retro story. My TV has recently stopped working on certain channels, dropping in and out until two channels didn’t work at all. The guy has just been to fix it. Apparently the channels were all tuned to the wrong frequency-thingy (multi-Piscean, I do telepathy but not technology lol) for the area I now live. He thinks that when I moved here (post-divorce), the TV automatically retuned itself to the old frequencies that were the strongest where I used to live, back… Read more »

My Uran is 1st Haus. But it is amplified by my Bucket Handle Moon being in Aqua which is 9deg off being an exact opp to my bombastic Leonine Uran.

As the Monty Python song, written as a parody on one of my fave Aqua Moons (J Lennon), says:
“How sweet it is to be an idiot”.

Phew! My stepfather died in my arms last Sunday. His funeral is today. Eclipse day. His estranged son, who physically assaulted him and my mother 6 years ago, will be at the funeral. A bit worried for my mum. An hour ago one of my 5 children (two by birth, three steps) woke up and vomited all over the couch, carpet, and herself. Hoping she doesn’t do that during the service. Two staff members at work walked out, stealing the passwords book on the way out the door. Had to change the locks. They’re toxic and are trying to blackmail… Read more »

Thank you marsbar. Lol…taser… Would add a new dimension… It’ll be okay. I’ve gridded it, set intentions, and holding powerful light.

High threshold, but once you cross it, you’re dead to her forever. Yes, we’ve had good legal guidance. It’s mostly a case of knowing what’s right and courageously speaking up.

This effects my Mars in Sag in the 5th, which makes sense on a number of levels: -the push right now is in my creative realm. -Mars energy is a major player in my life at present. Still incredibly angry over this weekend’s events at work; wondering how to handle it. Bitter experience tells me not to act from a place of anger (or at least, rage; but rage is a temporary conflagration, and this is a slow simmer of disgust). -Taking these flower essences for the creative block has opened doors that feel like maybe they weren’t ready to… Read more »

I should add that this anger is very distracting; despite what some (Kataka) peeps in my life might think, due to my Aries/Italian/NYC way of expressing myself (did I mention Aries Merc conjunct Eris?), I”m very uncomfortable with such emotions sitting like an infected splinter in my psyche. I prefer to get my passionate emotions out all at once and be done with it. And with Moon-Neptune, my natural realm is enchantment. So yeah- Mars is making his armored presence known at this time.

I did a budget last week. A real one. Looked at debt. Looked at expenses. Tried to plan for the rest of the year. It was a bit hellish and scary, especially because I’m leaving a slow burn, infuriating client situation and dont yet have a new one lined up. But I feel creatively inspired, and even want to take a class in Jan ( haven’t had “formal” training as a writer in almost 10 years), and at the very least, I’m motivated to figure out how to make that happen financially.

My natal DNA is sq exact the NN/SN
Trans DNA conjunct my Neptune (1ΒΊ)
Trans Sat/Mars conjunct my DNA which is squared by Neptune.

And a grand Fire Trine formed by my Vulcan, DNA & SN.
What this has to do with the eclipse – i have no idea – but it has rocked my world.

I nearly wrote a less poetic version of this and thought, ah a bit negative, lol. But yes, I do get over trying to predict outcomes lately. Yogananda said he studied astrology by doing everything at the worst possible time astrologically.

I’ve not liked this dark moon much, it has felt like I have to push on through regardless, on faith alone. It’s been a similar time to a couple of years ago when my sister asked me to make invitations for her wedding and the deadline for the send-out was fast approaching and I was all out of ideas.

I felt today as if I aged a decade last night. Maybe not aged, maybe matured. Definitely older in a way.
Today at work I felt it the most. As though I had downloaded at night…what? if not a brand new me, then for sure a me that is handling things differently. Out of the blue.
And handling the “dysfunction” elsewhere…well, meanwhile I am actually most sad about not feeling upset anymore, there is a new calm.
Am I dying? It feels a little like this.

I have transiting venus and mercury now conjunct my uranus, pallas… I’m blissfully and emotionally still struck by a wonderfully special person I’m not able to confess too, and I won’t. They can be an adult and do some work, put pieces together and act for themselves. I gave enough appropriate clues. Pluto is hovering over my own venus…for the last two years square to own saturn…north node 8th. The eclipse will be 1st house, and that is conunct north node (?) saturn / mars is in a trine to my own aries saturn 8th, but its on my IC…… Read more »

After walking away from a love affair with an unavailable person and trying to deal with the unbelievable pain and, often, regret of doing so I can’t even begin to say how much I needed to read this right now.

I’m going through the same thing but life is short and time is so precious. Don’t give it away to someone who can’t meet you halfway. If they’re unavailable then keep reminding yourself if you can that you deserve to spend your time happy and valued. Your time is so important, don’t give it away.

You may already know this but in my moments of weakness I like to remind myself of that

The solar eclipse will be in my Virgo 4th house. I have Mars-Jupiter conjunct at 9 Virgo, and I think my North Node is 2 Virgo. I have been nervous about what might happen – will I have to move house, will one of my cats get sick (4th house sometimes comes up about death – e.g. Going to our final “home”. Then a funny thing happened – two of my old high school best friends got im touch with me out of the blue. I haven’t spoken to them in about 10 years. I moved overseas then – all… Read more »

Oh shit I can’t even think right now about the New Moon Eclipse; this dark moon has hit me hard over the last 24 hrs. Tired af, can’t drink enough water… Whenever a dark moon feels especially low-tide, I know that the incoming New Moon phase will be extra ramped up. Judging by the way I feel right now, this Eclipse should be full on. So sleep & hydrate, hydrate & sleep. Building energy reserves. Started reading this book about developing your intuition… I don’t know, it seems kind of novice level, when I feel more apprentice-like… But under the… Read more »

Same thing with all the exhaustion and thirst…I’m such a hypochondriac that I always think I’m dying until I realize I’m just vibing with the energy. Stay in bed for the next few days…with a gallon of water at your bedside! I’m doing the same.

Dehydrated? Lost 4 kilos in 4 days with a viral infection of my airways, like ambulance to hospital ill, but wouldn’t succumb whilst mantra-ing ‘i’ll get thro’ this’ gasp gasp.It was truly an NDE and the old proverb of ‘if it don’t kill you -it makes you stronger’ well applies after 2 weeks. Now in recovery stage. Just before i came down with this mystery virus, was thinking how draining people close to me are always wanting something or some part of me until drainage occurred physically emotionally and yes spiritually. An accumulation over 2 years of delusionally thinking you… Read more »

You can have mine! I’m sorry to hear about your illness. Lots of protein, rest and hydration are best after a physical breakdown like this. Your body is telling you that these people are no good for you. It is ok to leave people behind and get them off your chest so to speak. I had lots of airways infections and tonsillitis at one time, throat chakra stuff from being unable to say what I wanted to say I believe. Rest up and get well soon.

Thanx Ampersand, just grabbed a kilo from you.
So so true about the throat chakra, with-holding all i wanted to say about (her) addictions till it bit me. Only one week away from her presence and feel FREE.
This is a hardcore Saturn-Neptune square story.

I’m very afraid tbh: the eclipse is on my natal chiron in the 7th + transit saturn conjunct my natal mercury in the 10th. I’m guessing it’s either major healing or major amounts of salt in the wound involving my career/ reputation.

(and all the neptunian floating around I did through August won’t really help it)

The eclipse is conjunct my Mercury activating at t square with Chiron (gem) and Uranus (with Saturn in sag) activating 2nd, 5th and 11th houses. I’m also a Virgo sun and have been experiencing health issues for a while now but I’m hoping to launch into some new regime/ perspective that makes a difference.

Fuq, this shaky. Right on my 9Β° Venus….in Virgo.
And she has 6 staggered (?) / fractured (?) T Squares focalised on her 6Β° Sagg Moon. Sqd by her in-orb, of the Sol Ecl, 4 x Pisces Stellium (inc Sun, Chiron, Mars n Merc) and her Uran / Pluto cj in Virgo.

I am somewhat apprehensive…l am doing all the advice (pulling my head in, etc). But her 6 (activated) T Squares worry the shit out of me. I am doing motor-cycle maintenance.

Thanx, fellow T Sq Understanderer.

But we have a good understanding. Her Focaliser, the Moon, is my chart Ruler and Bucket Handle. And my heavily aspected, stationery T Sq focaliser, Neptune, is conjunct her Scorp Asc.

But she has def put the brakes on. And I am doing ‘Po-face’.

And l am fuqn stupid, for being one of only a few men, to post amongst so many women; ha bloody ha. We just talked. I have a daughter who has just come out of an extremely abusive (thankfully non-physical) situ (her Venus is also 9Β° Virgo). I need to support her – l love my daughter very much.

WTF? Dude…stop looking at angles and buckets and shit like that.

If a woman you’re dating is threatened by your relationship with your own child then clearly, she is a child. It’s unconscious sibling rivalry. Make her go away. I don’t like her already. *grouchy face*

JokermanMM Member

Give me time. This situ became apparent as the Solar Eclipse was only 12 hrs away.

As a Mars Cj Pluto with Aries SN l am learning patience. Of course my daughter is important. But like me, she has a Yang Moon (hers is Sagg) and l will see what the Eclipse manifests.

Ta for your concern.

I think it is the astro and it will pass. I am going through a similar thing right now. I have Venus in Virgo 5 deg so while not directly on it, it is orb close. I have had what I thought was delightful relationship sort of dry up communication wise. I have chosen to withdraw at the moment, call it a strategic retreat. But all it did was make me mentally re-hash the previous not-so-great relationshit and where i failed in that endeavour. I feel like if we can wait it out things will be better soon, like maybe… Read more »

So, if you’ve got the urge to lash out at someone over a perceived “dysfunction”, should you? Or just quietly note it to be discussed once Merc is direct.

I think there is a great deal of reasonable middle ground between lashing out and total silence.

This Eclipse in my 12 house. I always said (until now) , that I didnt like to be an adult (decision making, responsibilities, etc) – recently I started loving paying bills! Say vot?! This Gem likes paying bills and not spending on shoes? Now it make sense. I am not going bats ppl!

Eclipse in my first house and opposite my Sun-Saturn-Merc… by my flexible multi-Piscean standards I am totally Saturning out. I’ve given myself until the end of September to sort some niggling health issues and do a financial overhaul, along with editing a major piece of work and doing the prep to launch something new post-Merc retro. I still have some (literal and figurative) hangovers from the old era and September is when I’ll be dealing with them once and for all. Along with a substantial edit of my wardrobe/look. Suddenly I hate everything I own. Am reassessing everything from underwear… Read more »

This is such a fab post. Thanks Mystic! I also think the real gist of Saturn square Neptune, for me, has been about realising structures i thought were a dream-come-true have come crashing down, and that dreams/ideas about myself I’ve previously blocked have come out of the shadows begging for awareness.
It’s a transit of opposites!

I’m also digging the Virgo health and details-mania. I bought three types of mould killer on the weekend and a clean bathroom and loads of exercise is really upping my vibe. xx

I LOVE that you invoke the powers of reality. I mean: we’re probably all (?) dreamers here to some degree – but to manifest, we gotta do the day to day work, which I so so love to shun. Good reminders to…do the work and avoid the literal/figurative sugar rush of wanting what we want NOW. I’ve been thinking to myself lately, “God, don’t give me just want I want – give me what I NEED.” I truly hope…this mantra/life force/learning time for me – which has been so full of equal measures growth and pain – pays off in… Read more »

This feels really on point! I love it. I am feeling a spreadsheet of glory/lipstick always/teardown of anything that was built with even a hint of victim mentality. Full ownership is the energy and it’s potent. There’s no trick to purity, clarity, or integrity, so there’s no tricks to pull here. It’s become totally impossible to hide from your own bullshit, I think?
