A Solar Eclipse entices us to imagine that we can outwit the overpowering laws of nature – or at least, beat the odds. If the Sun can go dark at sunrise, then maybe all those vampire and zombie movies are right, and we can cheat death. Maybe… but I don’t want to live in an immortal world. I want to mourn my dead, savagely, because I had the pleasure of loving them so dearly. I want to fight death because I’m determined to embrace life ecstatically. I want to proceed with joy into everything that makes life difficult, because they are the same things that make life dear….
About the Astrology of Eclipses
Defending 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
The 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.

Eclipses in the Houses of Your Chart
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 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, 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 »
