• Full Lunar Eclipse – October 8th

    Posted on October 4, 2014 by in Astrological Forecasts

    Animation of the October 8, 2014, total lunar eclipse, whereby the moon passes through the Earth's shadow from west to east. The horizontal yellow line depicts the ecliptic. The nearby dim Twice a year, for a few weeks, the Earth, the Sun and the Moon are in perfect alignment, like on a billiard table.  This is a very special time, and the astronomical result of this alignment is that during these two periods there will be lunar and solar eclipses, to some degree.

    The current eclipses season will begin with a total lunar eclipse on the night between October 7th-8th and will continue with a partial Solar eclipse on October 23.

     

    Total Lunar Eclipse – where can it be seen?

    A full lunar eclipse will be seen from North America and the Hawaiian Islands just before sunrise on October 8. For New Zealand, Australia and eastern Asia, the total eclipse is seen after sunset on October 8. A partial lunar eclipse can be seen before sunrise, October 8, from much of South America, or after sunset, October 8, from western Asia.

     

    The Lunar eclipse, which is a first step of that will later on be followed by the solar eclipse – is a time to detach from our history, from our old prints, from our fears, mistakes and the paths that do not serve us anymore.
    This year the eclipses also occur very close to the equinox – and reinforce the great opportunity for a total re-start and a fresh beginning, heading the future…

    The Astrological Meaning of an Eclipse

    The 3 major celestial bodies are The Sun, The Moon and Earth. All with huge astrological impact.

    The Sun and the Moon are two major forces, opposing yet complimentary. They symbolize the conscious and subconscious, the adult and the child, the logic and the dream, the Ying and Yang and much more.

    And between these two oppositions – there’s Earth.

    The Sun is the transmitter, the Moon is the receiver, and Earth, our beautiful blue planet, is the conductor. Earth processes these two opposing powers, the electro-magnetic power of the dance between the Sun and the Moon, and the result of it is all the life upon it.

    The alignments between these three great bodies (the Sun, the Moon and Earth)are known years in advance and appear in the personal astrological chart as the True and South Nodes – known in so many cultures as the Dragon’s Head and the Dragon’s Tail.

    In this current lunar eclipse the Moon will conbjunct the Dragon’s Tail – which represens our deep past, and the Sun will conjunct the Dragon’s Head – representing the future before us.

    During the Moon’s eclipse, Earth – the great conductor – is right between the conscious part of our lives (the sun) and the subconscious part of our life, creating a separation between these two parts. This is also a separation between logic and intuition, past and future, the inner child and the inner adult and so on.

    The Lunar eclipse, which is a first step of that will later on be followed by the solar eclipse – is a time to detach from our history, from our old prints, from our fears, mistakes and the paths that do not serve us anymore.

    This year the eclipses also occur very close to the equinox – and reinforce the great opportunity for a total re-start and a fresh beginning, heading the future…
