This is a hard one. I will always love to watch “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”

Lunar Eclipse in Aries: me versus us

The 18/19th of October 2013 brings a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in Aries opposing the Sun in Libra. The ruler of this Full Moon is Mars, the planet of action and aggression. I saw that many people are wondering about it and decided to write an article. Well, this marks a beginning of Aries/Libra eclipses that will be with us till 2016, approximately 3 years from now. Aries is about “me” and Libra is about “us”, so the main focus will be independence and relationship.

As April Elliott Kent puts this into words that I loved: <<It’s not just about giving to others, but about letting them give to us as well.>>

I have been saying this in my other posts, the general rule of thumb avoid making decisions on a Lunar Eclipse. The main reason is you will not have all the information at hand, especially when soon Mercury, the planet of communication will turn retrograde in the sign of Scorpio (hidden meanings). So, open your eyes and search underneath the surface!

ariesAries

You are experiencing a heavy period and with this eclipse things are going to change big time for you! You have got to be prepared for it! As I was telling you, things are going to transform for you in a very personal way, the way you act, your physical appearance, your wishes and desires. You must find balance and just expect change to take over. This is a major lift of the spirit; you must learn to give and to appreciate real friendship, to offer and to receive. You are the first of the zodiac and that means power, leadership. Mars, your ruling planet will be in the work sector and that will give you a lot to do these days. Mars will be transiting this sector of your life till the 7th of December, so a busy month ahead of November 2013. Just remember Mercury will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts, make a deal, and take extra care at financial initiatives that involve shared resources.

taurusTaurus

The eclipse marks a starting point on your health – you can start workout regimes, you can be aware of some illness that you now have to treat, make an appointment to the doctor, eat healthy and exercise; stay free with your spirit and you will benefit from these eclipses in Aries/ Libra. On October18/19 you should just open your eyes as something will be reveled or you can find very valuable information that was just under your eye. From Mars you got a lot of work to do, but still later Mars will be transiting the love life your life till the 7th of December and that means sex and happiness, childhood and easiness. Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts and take care of your partner. You started thinking about buying a house in August 2013, but please be patient as it is not a good time to sign anything. Just search for it and wait for the perfect time. That will be in December 2013 and January 2014.

Gemini

The eclipse marks a starting point of change and new things in your circle of friends, relations and connections. You have beengemini through a period when these things went slow and now, just wait for it as things are going to change. You are going to invest more time in playing with your kids or with children that you love to take care of. It’s a time for pleasure and fun and connections and new ways for you to spend your free time. Mars, the warrior will be in your home sector and that will give you a lot to do these days. Mars will be transiting this sector of your life till the 7th of December. You will have a lot to do around the house and in a good way! Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts or buy important items at this time as Mercury will hide things away. When Mercury will go direct, things will get back to normal. Try to be as diplomatic as you can in your work environment, with your colleagues as this is where Mercury strikes this time.

cancer_sCancer

For you a marking point and a shift in your career is happening. This is the first eclipse in a series of Aries/Libra ones that will end in March 2016. Eclipses are here to generate change, to force you out of your comfort zone and to make you move forward. The eclipse on the 18/19 of October fell into your career sector and that is telling me that here things are about to take another shift. Note that for you Lunar Eclipses are very important because you are a Moon Child. You have to have your eyes open wide and consider adapting to change. Eclipses are stressful, but in the end they bring satisfaction. Note that they are connected, so what happens now it’s going to be related to the next eclipse on the 15th of April 2015. Mars, the planet of war is moving into your communication sector and that means a lot to talk about and a lot of action with words. Just remember Mercury, the planet of communication and deals will go retrograde in Scorpio from October 21 to November 10. Do not sign contracts or buy important items at this time as Mercury will hide things away.

Uranus square Pluto – 2011 till 2015 influence

19905581_s

Uranus square Pluto

As we go in October 2013, we are heading straight to the climax of this year – there are 2 eclipses on the way and Uranus square Pluto is also building up again. This post is dedicated to the Uranus square Pluto energy. There are 7 exact Uranus Pluto squares between June 2012 and 2015. The last series of squares was between 1932 and 1934.Back then, the world lived the Great Depression, the political and social upheaval.

Why and how is this important?

This is a time that reveals transformation and defines a new era. It is a time to change focus and define a new strategy. There are unpredictable forces at work here. Uranus square Pluto is the most significant and most challenging planetary influence of our generation.  

What is a square?

A square is an angle of 90° (1/2 of an opposition [180°]). In Astrology, this is usually considered a very stressful aspect. It creates tension between planets and points. But tension is necessary to stimulate action and movement. This is an aspect that creates a lot of obstacles before it is smooth and right. However, a square forces everybody to find alternative solutions to problems, fight and learn lessons.

What is Pluto’s energy?

Pluto represents destruction, transformation and renewal. It is associated with death and resurrection, sexuality and creation. It is the Phoenix bird of astrology.  In Greek mythology, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. Pluto’s effect is grinding, ruthless, and extreme. Pluto is elimination, clearing out, and if the world seems covered in shadow, it is only to be revealed. Pluto transforms, nothing is ever the same after him.

Pluto is now in Capricorn, the sign of value, agendas, how we share, renew or exploit others. Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008. The first year that Pluto was in Capricorn the world experienced the financial collapse. At that time, financial institutions were collapsing in domino style, and there were a lot of unworthy explanations about what really happened.

Pluto’s game is through power struggle for who owns the Earth. Capricorn defines family, government, tradition and with Pluto here these things are going to change fundamentally. Pluto will be in Capricorn till 2024 and he will affect: Capricorn most powerfully, Cancer, Aries and Libra. In 2024, the family and the government will be totally different from what we know today.

What is Uranus’ energy?

Uranus is change, invention, revolution. It’s effect is unpredictable and shocking. Uranus rules invention and technology. The Planet Uranus changes signs every 7 years and brings with it change, unexpected events, and sometimes complete upheaval. In 2011, Uranus was entering Aries. The global effect of that, say some astrologers, was a tsunami and earthquake in Japan that caused the Fukushima mess and also the protests that spread through the Middle East.

Uranus square Pluto?

There are 7 exact Uranus Pluto squares between June 2012 and 2015. The next one is on Nov. 1 2013 and it is the forth of the seven exact squares. It is the midpoint of the cycle. The last will be on March 16, 2015. The events resemble the force of change. It will be like a hammer hitting to a rusted bolt. It will not move and it will not change. It will just hit and hit. The hammering must knock the rust off. That is the target. A transition to change is necessary. We will most likely face challenges as in 1930′s. If we want to maintain growth and prosperity, we need to change direction. The effect: extremism rising, nationalism rising and protests all over the world.

What about us?

This is a time to reinvent ourselves, to search and understand and see what we are made of, what is possible for us and what is not. We need to change to be able to pass through this revolutionary time.
