Seeing the event in the context of an eclipse fall out helped me not only make sense of what had happened, but to see the soul lessons I was to glean from that ending.

Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse: On Such a Full Sea

I’ve been plodding along a well-traveled path for so long that I’ve stopped noticing the scenery. Leo is a fixed sign, and once it’s created something, Leo will keep it going ad infinitum. But as its opposite sign, Aquarius, is keenly aware, change is the life’s blood of creativity. Every now and then we have to veer off the beaten path in order to keep moving forward—and if we won’t go willingly, the universe will not hesitate to give us a shove…. Read the full article

Lunar Eclipses and Relationships

Romantic partnerships are not the only relationships in our lives (just the ones we’re most likely to be obsessed about). What will the upcoming Lunar Eclipse say about the 99.999% of the relationships in our lives that don’t involve yearning looks across a crowded room or intimate physical contact?… Read the full article


“What will the eclipse mean?”

While it would be handy for an astrologer to be able to tell you precisely what an eclipse, a transit, or a progression will mean for you, it would be a fool’s errand to try, because these things never mean exactly the same thing for everyone. For astrology to be most helpful, you have to be willing to do some of the work. You have to be curious and creative enough to adapt astrology’s symbolism to what you know about yourself and your life…. Read the full article

scary-eclipse_200Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Eclipse?

Though eclipses are dramatic and interesting, few of them are truly life-changing. For many of us, this Solar Eclipse will come and go with some mild emotional disruption and perhaps some unexpected developments in some area of life, and that’s about it. But watch your chart closely over a number of years, and you learn to identify its hot spots. And this particular eclipse triggers one of mine….Read more of Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Eclipse »

About the Astrology of Eclipses

Eclipses - defending your lifeDefending Your Life: Eclipses and Life’s Moments of Truth – Imagine an afterlife in which you will be asked to defend your life based on how you handled the most fearful planet or aspect in your chart. Imagine viewing scenes from five days of your life: when at 19-year intervals, solar eclipses conjoined that planet in your natal chart. You were at a turning point, struggling to overcome one of your darkest fears. What events defined these turning points? How effectively did you handle your fear? Read the full article

eclipses latitudes of homeThe Latitudes of Home: Working with Eclipse Cycles – Because it is painful to remember the scary moments of the past or contemplate the uncertainty of the future, we tend to go through life ignoring the reality that our entire lives can be irrevocably changed in an instant. Every now and then, when someone close to us dies, a terrorist attack wounds our country, or some other personal crisis shakes us up, we are startled awake for a moment and behold a landscape we scarcely recognize. Our instinct, then, is to turn away as quickly as possible and return to the latitudes of home. Read the full article »

Eclipses in the Houses of Your Chart

Eclipses in Natal Houses

Dancing in the Dark: Eclipses and the Cycle of Healing Crisis – I find that most clients come to me for the first time because they’re at a critical turning point, a “crisis” in their life. It’s usually very easy to pinpoint the source of the crisis with eclipses. I just map out the solar and lunar eclipses for the year, figure out where those points fall in the client’s chart by house placement and hard aspect to natal planets. Then I backtrack 19 years, at 4-5 year intervals. Read the full article »

Eclipses in Aspect to Planets in Your Chart

eclipses natal planetsEclipses and the Narrative of Change – not even the most unpleasant natal aspect is inherently awful. And despite the unease they inspire, neither are eclipses. Some are part of a larger and more daunting planetary picture with global implications. Personally, however, we tend to experience eclipses most strongly when they form close aspects (especially conjunctions, squares, and oppositions) to planets in our birth chart. Each time an eclipse aspects one of the planetary crosses that you bear, a narrative of change emerges – one that is repeated over and over throughout your lifetime.  Read the full article »

Lunar Eclipses

lunar eclipseLunar Eclipses, Earthly Instincts – At this lunar eclipse, there is something in you that longs to connect more deeply with the Earth, to drink from her cool waters and lay your head upon her sweet grass. Some long-ago pain has reared up and sent you packing, returning home to mother Earth for solace. As you gaze up at the half-bitten Moon, know that the Earth is offering you something, some smooth block of marble, a piece of wood, a section of clay. Open your instinctive mind, and ask yourself: What is it that wants to be brought into being? And what is the right tool with which to carve it out? Read the full article »
