Remember the movie or movies when an eclipse occurs and the primitive people of that film script think the world is ending? Sometimes when I see people upset with the knowledge but not the understanding of an eclipse, I am reminded of those scenes. The sky darkens, the winds etc.. Yes, the world is ending.
Eclipses really are no big deal unless one of your planets is hit by them and within 2 degrees. That is where it ends and begins. So pull back if you are nervous about the eclipse on July 7 or July 22. We are looking at a Lunar eclipse at 15 Capricorn (impacting 13 Cancer or Capricorn to 17 Cancer/Capricorn ) Translation: this is a Full Moon eclipse, so Full Moon energy will add to the impact of the eclipse that day, or days around it.
Eclipses tend to drain energy from people the day before and the day. Lunar eclipses, I have been told will impact you physically less if you eat food grown in the earth on the days around the eclipse. Bring on the potatoes...
Eclipses are about conjunctions and oppositions. Those planets hit in conjunction and opposition are most likely to be hit with the 2 degree range and this is a large orb. Trust me, as one who has worked with eclipses on people's chart a lot.
A lunar eclipse July 7, 2009 timing is as follows: the first week, one gets an idea of the area impacted. one month, some of the story is revealed , however the whole complete tale will not be understood or completed for 18 months. Decisions made about how this stellar will impact you if you have a close hit cannot even be made , considering the multiple interpretations possible for a sign, planet and transit. A clue as well-what looks bad rarely turns out that way in hindsight. The events as the eclipse is a Full Moon manifestation tend to be emotional, revolving around the nature of the planet hit.
A solar eclipse which will occur on July 22 impacts career, men, energy and identity. This is a conjunction eclipse. How it will impact those who have planets from the 28 Cancer/Capricorn to 2 Leo/Aquarius access will follow this timing: 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and a year. At one week the happenings start unfurling. You get a clue at what might be going down in 1 month. It will take the whole 12 months for the story to complete.
Do eat around the Solar Eclipse foods grown in the sun, oranges etc. So those of you who do not have planets from 13 Cancer/Capricorn to 17 Cancer/Capricorn or 28 Cancer/Capricorn to 2 Leo/Aquarius can now go off and eat your popcorn (excuse me, orange). Watch, but be involved? no.
The bottom line even an astrologer unless very psychic and highly trained may not be able to zero on what will happen. As an aside, those born on New Moons and Full Moons usually will feel the energy the most if their planets are hit. Ascendants are included in eclipse hits.
