Saturday 8/16 The Lunar Eclipse occurs at 5:16 pm EDT. You may experience heightened perceptions as Spirit sends messages through symbols. Be alert to what catches your eye; if you’re a creative person you’ll want to use today for an artistic pursuit. Venus/Jupiter in the sky can create bounty so be sure to spend some of your day connecting with others because true wealth comes through relationships. Since the eclipse engages the U.S. horoscope, news at this time can have long-reaching consequences.
This eclipse is at 24 Aquarius 21, and people with Aquarius strong in their horoscopes or Leos will be feeling it most intensely. Neptune is in Aquarius, so there may be an almost hallucinogenic quality to the day. Meditation, creative pursuits and psychic endeavors are wonderful outlets; avoid overindulgence and self-medication. This is a great day for connecting with people. Get out of the house or if you’re unable to, make phone calls, chat, text or write a letter.
Monica Starr’s take at Astrology Mundo goes deeply into a financial reflection on the eclipse.
I had several tight aspects with the lunar eclipse: Natal Moon @ 24.47 Aquarius (7th) and Venus @ 23.48 Scorpio (4th); progressed Mars @ 24-25 Leo, progressed Juno @ 24 Virgo and progressed Vesta @ 25 Virgo. There was a wide aspect, possibly too wide, with my Leo Ascendant at 17.50 (Aquarius 17.50 Descendant).
Prior to the eclipse I felt worn out; by the time the eclipse had passed I felt more energized, having spent most of the evening with friends and having a political discussion with them 🙂 The only other thing that has occurred since the lunar eclipse is that we had to put my husband’s dog to sleep.
I had also had several wider hits with the solar eclipse on 8/1/08 with Natal Mars @12.15 Leo (12th), Vesta (1st), Pluto (2nd), and Juno (2nd) at 10.23, 11.46, and 11.53 Virgo, Sun/Neptune @ 13.13 Scorpio (4th), Saturn @ 5.23 Aquarius (6th), MC/IC @11.03 Taurus/Scorpio. Hadn’t looked at progressed chart for that day but Saturn has progressed to 8.52 Aquarius which is a tighter aspect.
Not sure how all this will play out over their alloted time.
