I noticed we didn't have a thread for this yet, and the time is upon us! Please share your eclipse experiences!

It's been an interesting one for me - already feeling the effects of it. The eclipse hit in my 8th house tightly opposing my natal Black Moon Lilith in the 2nd. -( I think I read the opposition to BML is the "Priapus point"). And, yes, some very old sexual abuse issues came up for healing. Yeah!

My great love's chart is going to be hit rather hard. The eclipse conjuncts his Moon in the 8th, ruler of the 8th. It squares his Sun, dispositor of the Moon - trines his Ascendant- opposes his Ceres in Aquarius, semi-sextiles both his Part of Fortune in Virgo and Mars/Lilith conjunction in Cancer.All this within about a 1 degree orb or so- how dramatic can you get?! I'm really curious to see how this will play out in his chart. Any thoughts?

This hits my ASC, but nothing is in the ASC Natally nor transit wise I believe. So not sure how this is gonna work.

Do squares to this eclipse degree count? I have a exact square to Uranus in the 7th. Mmm.

Oh sh*t that was today, well I will soon see if it counts. Is there a time AEST that it hits? What about 1.30pm? Just seemed to be a lot happening then.

The eclipse is exact at 00:50 on February 10, AEST, but you will have to adjust this for Daylight Saving (or Summer) Time if it's in operation. So you haven't missed it yet ...

Appalled to hear about the wildfires, btw. Hope you're safe and well

This conjuncts my ascendant too... I can't find much on the effects...what am I to expect?

Kerrie,

I'm wondering the same thing. I'm getting alot of Scorpio issues coming up. I don't know whether this is because the eclipse falls in my 8th house or because the Sun and Moon degrees of the eclipse make an exact t-square out of my natal Neptune in Scorpio. I'm going with "a combination of both", at this point.

This conjuncts my ascendant too... I can't find much on the effects...what am I to expect?

Boodica,

Not much to go on, but vaguely, the eclipse would deal with Leo/Aquarius issues, as relating to you and 7th house. So one-on-one interactions will be emphasized. It could have to do with the amount of attention you receive from others.


To all:

To those who aren't seeing any effect in the past few or next few days, see this thread:

I was hoping to see this thread :)

Do lunar eclipses signify endings? Or just changes in general?

I have the eclipse in my 8th house. It trines exactly natal Chiron and 4th house cusp by 3 degrees.

It forms the focus point of a yod in my progressed chart though. Prog Jupiter conjunct Venus(23 Pisces) is in sextile with prog Mars (20 Cappy). I'm wary of yods becoming activated, they can be quite potent.

Jupiter is my chart ruler, Venus rules my 5th and 10th houses. Lunar eclipse forms yod point to those two in prog sextile.. I have a job interview for the temp job that I've been doing this Wednesday by which time Moon will be at 20 degrees Virgo. I wonder if this will activate my prog Mars, Jup/Ven. This will be interesting.

Not too sure what to make of this lunar eclipse.

This eclipse conjuncts my Vertex in the 7th house by 1.5 degrees. The beginning of a series of eclipses in my 7th house.

It didn't come up in solar fire at all though, this eclipse. wtf.

This one is conjunct my moon.
First house.
Leo moon 23 degrees.

The Neptune opposition to moon has been interesting enough the way it is.
Natally I have moon trine Neptune....so transiting Neptune has been sextile Neptune.
I have chiron square later this year...chiron at 26 Taurus.
I have all kinds of transits that are interesting later this year...

Think I'm going to take a nap...
just seen it's 4:44 PM...
Well see what it's like later tonight...
I'm a bit drained.

I'm watching out for Mars when it opposes the eclipse point around 3rd March, Mercury will be there too a bit before.

Perhaps I'll meet Mr Right, he'll just magically appear in the shape of a Venus/Mars sextile yod point!

Meanwhile back on Earth...

I have 2 very tight aspects to this eclipse
20' 59 eclipse Leo

20' 48' ASC Leo
20' 55' Mercury Sag.

Did anything unusual happen?
I had the first serious marriage proposal ever in my life!

Proposal came off a man with sun 21 Aries!

Proposal came off a man with sun 21 Aries! Good for you, Astrodawn! At least someone out there benefited from the energy.

I'm posting a link to Rob Tillett's site, as he's written a bit about the recent solar eclipse, and I found it interesting.

http://www.astrologycom.com/eclipse.html#lunar

I sense - in my life at least - that whatever rumbles and upsets I'm experiencing are more to do with Mars fast approaching the conjunction to the lunar eclipse point - i.e. 6-and-a-half deg Aquarius - than they are to do with the effects of the recent solar eclipse in Leo - that is, even though I have 3 significant planets in Leo.

I feel that the two eclipses have worked in tandem (as I believe they're supposed to) and will kick along any changes which are being forced upon us by the Uranus-Saturn opposition. Passivity is no longer allowed!!!! We are all being `encouraged' to sit in the driver's seat and take charge of our lives.

Hello Freedom,
This eclipse was 1' 10'' of my Natal Sun at 19' 49" Leo.. Only significant thing that happened ..I heard about a death of someone I knew like 20 years ago. It was finally that 3rd death you always hear about occurring in a row. Been two in the last couple of weeks. Both were relatives. Often hearing of deaths of people in your "circle" comes in 3's. So maybe it signified a completion of some sort. 8/12/2045, my 79th birthday, there will be the strongest Solar eclipse ever observed in the United States hope to make it till then ...feel its a fated thing almost.
Take care

It hit in my 1st house, and I got closure on an old relationship issue and the feeling that I could finally move forward again. It was a "textbook" eclipse event for me! It hit in the 3rd house of the person I was in the relationship with, and the things he said to give me closure were things that needed to be said for a long time. So there was an ending of ambiguity on his part, and finally leveling with me about what he really felt. "Textbook" for him as well.

Neptune Rising
02-11-2009, 06:10 PM
Hmm weird.
Transiting Saturn has been inconjuncting my Chiron for a while now, stationing on it inconjunct. The eclipse trined it.

I've been gaining insights into my 4th house wound (Aries), ego, such subtle insights but things that can help me go beyond my Chironic wounding.

Freedomlover, I must thank your for creating this thread and putting the exact degree of the eclipse in the title.

I've been more or less unaware of major astrological events these past few months, but yesterday, I checked my transits because I could feel something was up astrologically. I thought I was experiencing some transit to my natal Mars, or transiting Mars was aspecting one of my natal planets, perhaps the sensitive Sun-Venus-Mercury conjunction that "activates" a few configurations. I was surprised to find virtually nothing, although I admit I did not examine my transits in detail. Yet the Daily Horoscope on Astrodienst mentioned that there had been an eclipse the day before, so I immediately checked it's location in my chart. This was late at night, so I think I read Virgo instead of Leo; this was in the middle of my sixth house, but not on the cusp or conjunct my South Node. I laid the matter to rest, and then I discovered this thread.

This may or may not be significant, but the eclipse was conjunct my sixth house cusp (Placidus system) within two degree--it may be less if I use a slightly different time of birth. Ironically, the event that "set off" a chain of events occurred on the night of the eclipse; I wouldn't be surprised if it was within a few hours of the exact moment. I was performing the mundane task of sending e-mails to members within an organization, there was miscommunication about one of the e-mails. To make a long story short, I felt like I was under attack and I became defensive and somewhat withdrawn. The entire situation felt too distorted not to have any astrological significance, and I thought my reaction also deserved some inquiry. That's when I discovered the eclipse was on the cusp of my sixth house.

A lot of work I have been doing for this organization is of a decidedly Virgoan nature--organization is a key componant, as is e-mail communication between advisors, officers, and members. I've regarded the position as one of service; from the beginning, I didn't care about any recognition we might or might not receive, as long as we helped improve things for the next group that takes over. It's felt very much like a duty, one's that's pervasive and often not very fun. Indeed, this is the main reason why I stepped down as moderator of the forums, and why I have not been active within the last few months. It's difficult to describe, but I feel that it's essentially sixth house work--quite repetitive, as well as detail- and service-oriented. The organization itself would probably be signified by the eleventh house, which is opposite the sixth.

This was a lunar eclipse, correct? Does anyone know if lunar eclipses would have a greater influence upon those with an emphasis upon Cancer or the Moon in their natal charts? Or must it simply hit a sensitive point?

Also, do you suppose you can use an eclipse for rectification purposes? Nope, I haven't given up on that, either! ;)

I was surprised when I found out there was a lunar eclipse, and this is something I don't understand well:

I thought the nodes show us where the solar and lunar paths cross, so when there is a full or new moon on the node that is when there is an eclipse. So on my astro-clock the Node is on 9 degrees Aqua-Leo. If this lunar eclipse was on 21 Aqua-Leo isn't that quite far off? Would it be quite a weak and partial eclipse either visibly and astrologically?

Or maybe the opposite is true: that because we think eclipses are so powerful even with such a large gap, this is a good sign that with the luminaries at least we should have wider orbs in chart interpretation? 11 degrees :O

The eclipse was conjunct my MC (22 deg leo). It was conjunct my saturn and moon by sign, but wide orb on degree (15 and 8 deg respectively). It also squared my Jupiter in Taurus in 7th house.

I guess the major thing is that I was SOO busy! My social life was extremely busy from the 11th till today and it is usually dead. I hadn;t even had time to sit down! I went to 2 parties, a basketball game, a concert, all in the span of 3 days. It is very unlike me! So that was fun. I also got an enormous amount of valentines gifts, which was also an uncommon happening for me!

On the downside, I have gotten into some really emotional exchanges with others, and the basis of it, in my opinion, was that their ego felt bruised by something they felt I didn't do. So then they did things to get my attention that turned into a big argument (is this Leo or what?) As a result, I ended an acquaintance with someone ( moon = endings). And it is weird, because that person had a moon in aquarius, which was opposed by the eclipse.

Anyways, I would like to know how this eclipse affects my career prospectives long term as I just graduated medical school and am job hunting. Anyone?

Isn't Leo the ruler of fairy tales? Well, I guess its symbolic in the way humpty is sitting proud on that wall. Ahh.. but too much confidence can lead to a great fall!

Kerrie
02-17-2009, 06:50 AM
Hi Kerrie, and yes mercury is in the 5th does that have some significance with the event :)
I was guessing the 5th as you have Leo on the Asc, but your never know if you have a couple of signs in one house. The 5th is the house of romance and one of Mercury's keywords is communication.

Im curious was the proposal in some way Sag. Did he propose by taking you up in a hot air ballon or something that? Now you have Juno in Cap and Saturn in your 7th. Is their a Capricorn theme to his personality? Does he have some Capricorn somewhere?

I wonder if the house of marriage proposals is the 5th or 7th? Can anyone let me know.

Funny I looked briefly at the transits to your chart, you have your natal Sun (5th) sextile Saturn (7th) activated by Pluto at the moment. I love to see the natal promise activated by transits!

So I dont think you have told us? Did you say Yes?

This was a partial lunar eclipse with the dragons tail
Celeste Teal states in "Eclipses Predicting World Events and Personal transformation"
South Node Lunar eclipse-culmination and release; soul and emotion; filtering....
A lunar eclipse with the attendance of the south node may correspond with low points in life as far as the emotional vibrations coinciding with it due to the process of letting go of old emotional habit patterns, and letting go of the persons we've come to depend on and the things we've taken for granted. pg 112-113

Thanks heaps for that quote from Celeste Teal, cassanra. It perfectly explains why I found this particular eclipse so debilitating. I had so much emerge from the past - all in one heap, like dirty laundry - and am still sifting through it, layer by layer. That quote has helped me recognise that this is something which had to happen.

I guess we could say that the recent lunar eclipse was the eclipse we had to have! (Any Australians who were around when Paul Keating was PM will know what I'm saying here....)

The_Sundance_Kid
02-18-2009, 12:20 AM
Hey Cassanra, just to clarify, for a lunar eclipse, we use the moon's degree to say where the eclipse is right?

So it is attending the South Node because the moon is conjunct the South Node right?

What is the interpretation for if it touches the North Node? (Out of curiosity and optimism!)

freedomlover
04-08-2009, 02:10 AM
I just realized that transiting Jupiter is opposing the eclipse point. From what I've read, oppositions and squares to the eclipse point will activate it, as well.

This explains why issues of Aquarius/Leo nature have been coming up for me intensely in past few days. Have any of the rest of you noticed its effects? If the eclipse did not hit anything in your chart, or you don't have anything around 20*fixed signs (Aqua,Scorp,Leo,Taurus), you may not be noticing much. I would be interested to read about other's experiences.

My Black Moon Lilith is roughly at 20*Aquarius, so the eclipse, and now transiting Jupiter, is triggering this for me.

More eclipse action.... buckle up!

Mars will retrograde at 19'42" Leo on December 20, 2009 - so just a hair over one degree orb of this eclipse. We may not see the full effect of the trigger until it is exact - which won't be until sometime in April/May of 2010- after Mars goes direct again. (Stations direct at 0'17" Leo on March 10, 2009). Then Mars in Leo will make a full and exact conjunction to the degree of this eclipse as it crosses the eclipse point.

:eek::eek::eek::eek:

Have just checked my ephemeris, and discovered tr Mars will be in Leo from mid Oct`09 - 8th June`10. That's one very long journey, and through the eclipse sign from Feb`09 - as you mention, FL. That will be a very long time!!! So not looking forward to that.

One other possible trigger:

Vesta is currently slowing down to go direct, and is within a few arc minutes of its stationing degree. It will station direct at 21'37" Leo on April 6th. That is within 38 arc minutes of the February eclipse. Pluto also goes retrograde that same day.
