What I notice as this week’s lunar eclipse nears, is a different clustering among friends and associates. Strange that a lunar eclipse is about letting go, yet new friends are coming in, or friends who have always been meant to be are randomly shoring to the beach, landing on eachother’s doorsteps and in eachother email boxes.
This lunar eclipse has a lot to do with letting go of our addictions or habits, whatever they may be. Friends may be coming together to help each other or support each other in this highly sensitive subject where nobody did wrong, it just is.
As Moon in Aquarius can tend to be distant, and intellectualize, it may be a good idea to remember compassion and withhold judgement. When we let go, it can be scarey and for that we stand taller with our brothers and sisters.
Look at this chart. Even if you cannot read a chart, know that the sensitive points are at 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock. Planets are moving counter clock-wise, and so we can see that each of the o’clocks, or angles, as they are called in astrology, have a celestial body coming toward them. These angles are the place where the personal is political and vice versa. This is one sign that points loud and clear to: We Need Eachother! This is no time for isolation!
Another sign re-inforcing this coming together as partners within groups is the three planets you see up around 10 o’clock. That’s Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter in Aquarius. If you don’t understand what this means, just have a party and invite a few Aquariuses and see how the party comes alive, has an edge a vibe and an undertow and becomes unforgettable. Many Aquariuses instinctively know how to get us together. Uranus, the ober über Aquarian planet, is inching toward 0° Aries, (9 o’clock) the ober über most sensitive point on the chart. And Uranus is opposing Saturn, Aquarius’s ancient ruler. This explains why tough personal-political issues are creating a festering in the folk.
I think this lunar eclipse is bringing us closer to our next community. During this time we may notice who is around, who is calling, who is showing up, where have we landed and who is missing. As the Saturn – Uranus oppostion tightens during September, lets try to notice what issues are dividing what camps and remember if we were camping on the moon during the eclipse we may see the Earth disappear – and at that point, how silly that the camps were ever divided.
