Can An Eclipse Of The Moon Be Lucky?

Filed in MOON SIGNS

hasyu-kawase

Can an eclipse of the Moon be lucky? In the olden days, they were viewed as potentially treacherous, but in some cases, they bring good fortune. They’re super-revved up New and Full Moons or, as I call them, Catalyst Moons. Sometimes they stir up concealed animosity or make you aware of stagnant dynamics. But, on other occasions, they catapult you into a more desirable life. In the case of this Leo below, you can see how it came together brilliantly. If an Eclipse is on a particularly friendly planet in your natal birth chart, they’re most likely to bring excellent opportunities.

Hi Mystic,

Now that the lunar dust has settled, just a quick note to let you know you were RIGHT – of course!  September WAS huge, and maybe even something like love is happening now…

The first Eclipse of the Moon was on my Venus. Three days later I met a man who lives in a city on the other side of the country. We somehow noticed one another but didn`t talk much or even fall in love instantly. A day later, I left for a long-planned two-week journey to the country of my ancestors.

An Eclipse Of The Moon Is A Fate Catalyst

I`ve never been there because of war and trauma, and you can imagine the rest. So it was very emotional to be there and see, smell and taste the “old home.” (I found the house my grandparents had built). Even more so, I felt a deep connection to the country´s capital, where I spent a few days. I was so happy at this place and so in love with this city that I suddenly knew the town I´ve been living in for the last decade isn`t right for me. It wasn`t a thought I had EVER before – but at this moment, I just knew it. That was two days before the second Eclipse, which was precisely on my Moon.

Fast Forward to the present moment: I`m moving cross-country in January. As I decided to change jobs, too,  I chose a city to fit my new aspirations (I was a freelance writer until now, but I`m craving to do something more serious than advertising – so I`ll be working at a university and doing a doctorate. And the dissertation will be about the capital of my ancestor`s country).  And surprise – this new city happens to be the hometown of the man I met at the beginning of September.

You Meet Destiny Muses

As he`s an artist who works in fields that are interesting for my planned dissertation, we came in contact through mutual friends and are now having a lot of amazing conversations. And I´m curious what it will be like when we can finally have these in person. 

I am speechless and amazed at how all of this worked out and is intertwined, now that I´m writing it down. Every aspect of my life is changing, and I would have never imagined that just two months ago.

A Mutable Leo

I love this story. It’s not just the love interest – it’s the emotional catalyst of a city, ancestors, Moon, Venus and subsequent vocational shift. It seems like a heart and a mind-opening. You meet Destiny Muses during Eclipses or, in your case, a Destiny City. The word “destination” comes from destiny. During Eclipse Season, notice the places that you are drawn toward.

And yes, the weird thing about an Eclipse of the moon is that when you look back at them, the fate lines of your entire life are visible. And the synchronicity between different events is so intricate and magic, that it is breath-taking.

September started with so much promise, I met someone who I had instant chemistry with… However it finished as fast as it started, with no reason. Since then I have been, sick, placed on some horrible drugs, and struggling with getting back to normal. In the midst of this there have been some strange echoes of my past.. Photos posted of an event that I was at 26 years ago where I first fell in love, a fling that never quite happened 21 years ago (who broke my heart at his 21st ) has been back in contact and is… Read more »

A total eclipse of the sun coming? Hope not. At 6pm last night Oz time, the news of Trump’s win was on the teev. Here so far away in South Oz, nearly as far away from him as the Antarctic, i was overwhelmed with a scary feeling. Perhaps his lack of political experience can be a bonus looking at it positively. Who knows, he may turn out to have the goods needed or am i fooling myself?
Change with a capital C is surely here.

Ooooooh! This is amazing…….I’m going to look back through and see what I can track in my life with the eclipse cycles. Powerful stuff! The Sept. one was significant for me since I’ve got lots of Virgo/Pisces stuff in my chart and it’s all angular, on MC/IC. What do you all think of full moon’s in perigee? All that ‘super moon’ stuff? Any extra power? I know any eclipses would be way more powerful than moon in perigee, but just wondering… In other news…..I VOTED!!! Can’t wait for this to be done, but I’m feeling optimistic now, based on news… Read more »

Have never tracked Eclipses like this. Fingers crossed tho that my new insurance co will finally allow my dr to pump my spine full of steroids come December. I know: dreamy.

Everything is relative.

Nothing says eclipse time like a spine pumped full of steroids? Oh my, these would make interesting lyrics.
Let’s go get to India, we can visit the spiritual shrines and get stem cell treatment along the way.

i never pay attention to the OP. sorry Leo. this sounds amazing.
I thought of the 10 of coins/ pentacles (the rider waite one at least) when I saw this image.

I wish I had experienced something like that.
The last eclipse in September was exactly conjunct my Ascendant in Virgo and opposed my descendant in Neptune.
If it’s true that “Early December is the echo point of the Virgo Eclipse on September 1” then I will observe it because on that first day of September I was expecting a blast and yet nothing even remotely interesting happened to me.
PS: way to go mutable Leo, it sounds amazing.

*My descendant in Pisces conjunct Neptune

Same. Nothing happened to me either and I have Venus in Virgo at 5 degrees. 🙁 But all hell broke loose mid-sept. Maybe early Dec will make up for it .

And go lucky Leo!

Gotta keep real tight orbs for a transiting eclipse hitting a natal planet or angle – like 3 degrees or under, ideally. Some even say 1 degree or less. September’s eclipse was 9Virgo21, making the hit to your 5 degree Virgo Venus just out of reach, but the line has to be drawn somewhere… Re: An eclipse hitting one of your angles (ASC/DSC/MC/IC), if there is a chance your birth time is off by a wee bit (and that’s not uncommon at all given the commotion that can occur during a delivery – recorded time on the birth certificate may… Read more »

Thanks! Good point about tight orbs. I didn’t know people used tight orbs in western astrology for anything except node considerations and asteroids. I am fairly sure my birth time is accurate as it is not an even time like on the hr or half hr.

I can’t believe i am saying this but I am actually too chicken to look at eclipses because of the no doubt countless opportunities i have let fly past because of utterly jagged confidence and seaweed caught in the propeller of self esteem. the march 2015 eclipse was the last one I paid attention to, almost 3 months later to the day i was winging it to a place i had never been before where otherworldly cap was, and look what happened there, i tripped over and fell into the pluto IC abyss or was that saturn in Leo or… Read more »

PiMM Member

honestly at the moment it feels like swinging wildly between a sense of deep convalescence ( & where i put my prog cancerian moon) and utter, deep existential hopelessness, like wearing a 75L backpack full of stones, climbing a ladder whose top I cannot see, which is set into quicksand. i assume this is outer planet crap that one day may ease but i really hope it happens soon.

Any aspects to that not-good-enough-yet-keeps-slogging Cap Moon? See what you’ve got, besides Pluto there, to help Haute Capricorn. Maybe even diversify through your chart and shift focus to the good polishing bits.

PiMM Member
Pi

thanks mille, good advice…mars over pluto and my moon was a good little turbo boost for things where screwing up was Not An Option, or at least clawing my way over the line. the cap moon always insists that it is the only game in town and these days i know it’s talking crap but man, getting the other vibes into the equation is like an all-in street fight with the demons sometimes

Yeh, reading the above made me feel i must have wasted an eclipse moment as well. On paper, though, I’ve done marvellously well. Pi, don’t forget the ol’ South Node and Dr Chiron biz referenced in our Dailies etc. I’m trying to keep reminding myself of that but I read these in the morning and forget during the heat of the workday, and the Wind-Down of Evening (which is really just me looking over the day to find what i missed doing and completing, along with so called self-dev relaxation!) All we can do is keep feeling the feely-feels, and… Read more »

yes.. exactly. *exhales*
chopping wood is saving me at the moment, but i can’t get far until i need to lug some more water, lately the realisations have been major. inching forwards on the map but it’s a 1:25,000 map so those inches are a long way irl.

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Oh yeh, meant to add, for you as much as me ;P , when you can’t help looking back, keep most of your fly eyes forward. (OK some of them go at outward angles, as well.) We’re gonna just try to sit with a blend of perspectives on ourselves in time, yes, Pi? Say yes, i need encouragement! Winky Piscean style.

PiMM Member
Pi

oh i am SO down for blend in perspectives. I am saying YES. YESYSEYES. it’s somewhere between rainbow nebula and kaleidoscope. It’s literally all we have at the moment i think. you’re a multi pisces yes? this must be huge for you, and that saturn square errghh how’s that working for you?

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

no only piscean sun, but i suppose the 12th house moon neptune jupiter is like that. saturn is all over my sag 12th house and ascendant. it’s…powerful. first i felt old looking, just before it hit; now it feels sexy. Hard work, everywhere i look. Cheerful self-hatred?! Lots of pep talks to self, like once a minute. When i’m down the pit, other parts of me lower baskets of provisions. The bod is suffering most from the spelunking. venus in aqua trined uranus in libra. the uranus and the venus square other heavy hitters, so Mars in Aqua will be… Read more »

A lot of this Neptune-South Node shizz has to do with forgiveness: and that includes toward oneself. You did exactly what needed to be done at the time, every time- no regrets. And no mistakes.

The more ruthlessly, yet lovingly and forgivingly you examine the past, the quicker and more buoyantly you move forward.

You’re awesome, Pi. Don’t be afraid of the shadow of that awesomeness.

PiMM Member

love your firey mindset DZ, yes. xx
just started to see glimpses of newness, actual real newness, just today.

dont be afraid of the shadow of that awesomeness.

i needed to retype this to absorb it.

fwiw (nothing to do with you dizzarina but i’m just typing) i’m feeling a bit down that Ampersand felt so hurt / affronted re a comment back in another post. ampersand if you’re out there, hugs.

god there is just so much in the mix right now. It’s huge. huuuuuggeeeeee

MissDeeMM Member
MissDee

I agree with dizzarina here Pi. Forgive yourself. Seriously.

And thank you dizzarina for pointing the forgiveness thing because I truly tend to give in to the gloomy low Nept vibe.

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Amazing words.

Yes to forgiveness, Pi. I use my guilt to forgive: oh look what you don’t love about yourself…now love it! Fixed or in progress, or seemingly stuck, just love it. Guess that takes a pep talk a minute 🙂

If it makes you feel better I don’t really look at eclipses either. I honestly can’t tell if a transit made something shitty happen or the last eclipse. 🙁 Or in the rare case something good.

I know totes unrelated.
I had blood test done and my worst thing was Folate coming in low. (It wasn’t what l went for). I’ve been getting my Pisces freund making contact with me again over the past 10 days. Her voice has warmth in it.

I decided to ask the Oracle just one question. Like what does X think? (whatev).

It freaked me.

Gist of it said: She is thinking of but l have to eat my greens.

I was gobsmacked.

Stress can zap B12. I hear. and the other B’s too. countless alt-nutritional types reading this though who could probably augment my on-the-fly mercury research-sponge tactics

I got a real high PSA # (7.1) in Jan. I saw an Ayurvedic French guy, in Maleny, who introduced me to that diet. He gave me herbs for male health. It has dropped to 4.4 in 10 months. (I have Mars opp Chiron – intercepted)

Should l admit that my Mars is in the 2nd & Chiron in the 8th. I think I’m working that opposition.

Oh this wonderful website and blog really keeps me going some days! just this morning while going for a run with my dog in the bush, a big male kangaroo slashed my dog’s chest and he’s in for surgery as I type this. Scariest start to the morning trying to call the dog off from ‘protecting’ me from the roo. but then half an hour ago the postman turned up and it was a delivery of Mystic’s wonderful 2017 books for each of the signs!

Synchronicity, as the eclipses just started showing up in my tarot! Did a spread last night and BAM; there they were as a timing indicator! I find the traditional means of divining timing in the tarot don’t tend to resonate for me…there’s usually some astrological correspondence I see referenced (visually or by the actual card’s astro-association) and that’s how I make the connection. The upcoming Leo/Aquarius eclipses only peripherally touch off some things in my nativity, but we do have bingo in my Pr. chart!

Love the story – the Universe’s perfection is weird and wonderful!

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

Do you mind my asking, how do the Eclipses show in the cards? I mean, is there a card resonance; is it by House or Sign; do you think it’s your personal understanding of image or placement; or is there something that could clue in another reader of their own spread? Sorry, you just got my usual 50 million questions, courtesy of my Merc opposition Uranus, Sag Rising, Sag Moon Need-to-Know-Now. Augmented by Piscean Sun’s Need to Understand. You’ve probably said so above, and if interpret correctly it is in correspondence with your personal chart. But if you’ve got a… Read more »

LiberatingVenusMM Member

Personal understanding of the images and, more specifically, of how they combine. It has nothing at all to do with my natal chart or the type of spread that I use; I’m like any other reader who can look at an abstract compilation of images and simply have something jump out at them regarding that synthesis. I’ve been steeped in astrology most of my life, so this is the medium the cards most often seem to use to speak to me regarding timing.
