Lunar eclipse 26th June 2010 at 4 degrees of Capricorn

In the transit chart of the eclipse, the full Moon is square to Jupiter/Uranus in Aries. The chart for the time of the eclipse in London has 15 degree Virgo rising, which could show a focus on health matters, ecology, as well as communications. The Moon in the 4th house (the home, roots, our base, family), Sun in the 10th (house of work, career, public life, also governments and people in authority). The square is thrown to Jupiter/Uranus which reside in the 7th house of relationships, conflict, business partnerships. Pluto is also conjunct the Moon, with Mercury conjuncting the Sun. That is quite a T-square going on with Jupiter/Uranus being a reaction point.

The ruler of the eclipse is Saturn, as the Moon is in Capricorn. At the time of the eclipse, Saturn is in Virgo, about to oppose Uranus for the final time, while in a loose square with the eclipse, could show that this is a good time to make any needed changes in our lives, to break away from the old and venture into the new. The square from Saturn may indicate a need to give proper structure to this change.

The eclipse/Moon is forming a transiting sextile to my natal 10th house Uranus, with the eclipse Moon falling in my 1st house, the Sun in my 7th. As the nodes are currently transiting my 1st /7th house axis, there has been a strong focus on relationships for me, with several opportunities presenting themselves, maybe for the purpose of discovering more about myself through interactions with others. Full Moons can bring realisations to light, as the whole of the Moon is lit up by the light from the Sun. Things that were brewing beneath the surface, things that may have been on our minds can have a chance for resolution during the full Moon. And a lunar eclipse is a super powered full Moon, with the changes made being longer lasting and more potent.

A few days prior to this eclipse, I suddenly became aware of something that was previously hidden, within a romantic relationship I was involved in, which was a catalyst to us breaking up. I can see a flavour of the eclipse Moon square to its 7th house Uranus/Jupiter here. The full Moon bringing things to full awareness, along with a square to Uranus (suddenness, disruption, break up, enlightenment), and Jupiter (expansion).

The lunar square to the Jupiter/Uranus in Aries duo brings of own will, aggression and winning to the mix. It also adds a lot of active energy and impetus to get things done, or resolved, or even changed. Whatever happens, it is likely to quite fast. For me, I discovered that I wasn’t receiving the nurturing (Cancer) that I needed, and I felt that my environment wasn’t reflecting the level of commitment that I felt I needed in my life, or perhaps I was not committed enough to my own goals (Capricorn). Moon in Capricorn in my first house gave me the impetus to pursue and nurture my unconventional career ambitions. The Moon also formed a kite formation, sextile natal Uranus and progressed Sun/Lilith. This in fact activated a natal progression involving progressed Sun trine natal Uranus. This has been increasing my interest and ambition to understand more about astrology, and yoga (being an unconventional career ambition to teach), and gives sudden flashes of insight. I decided to act in my own interests (Aries) change (Uranus) the situation, in order to nurture myself more. The issues involved had indeed been brewing for a while and ignored, but the full Moon presented the issues in such a way that they had to be attended to, and resolved.


Venus square the nodes (6th Sept 2011)

Venus in square with the nodes today, love may be a focus, an energy in the air. Loving kindness, being gentle with ourselves, being tender with ourselves. True love starts from within, like a flower blossoming, radiating it’s beauty outwards. We need to find ways to be gentle with ourselves, forgive ourselves and feel the inner home, leading to inner peace. Reaching inwards to find the qualities of Venus enables us to touch other’s hearts, and for them to touch ours.
