An Eclipse falls on one of the Planets in my birth chart.
What does this mean for me?
When an eclipse affects one of the planets in your birth chart, this will have a big meaning in your life and definitely needs to be understood.
Remember, eclipses undam dammed up energies, so whether an eclipse’s effects on you are positive or negative will depend on how well you are on course for your meant destiny in life. It is essential to realize that if you are off course, and eclipse will bring downfall, but of course here we hit the issue of phenomenology, because if your life is off course, then you need collapse of that life-style to have any hope of getting your life on-course again.
So, you do need to take into special note is the Eclipse falls on one of your natal planets.
Essentially, we are talking about the Eclipse Moon falling on one of your natal planets, but we also need to consider other key planets from the eclipse chart and also its Nodal axis or Ascendant falling on one of your natal planets.
Here is a simple ‘one size fits all’ meaning for Eclipse impact on one of your natal planets:
Eclipse impact on:
Your Sun brings out your expression of self and decisiveness. It creates a crisis or a leap forwards. It is time to shine, but you may need to let go of your old life in order to be able to do that. Take action. Do Vision Work and Magical Will work.
Your Moon brings hurt emotional events leading to crisis and vulnerability. Can be rooted in mother or the past. Might involve a move of house or job, of major re-creation of your life to make it reflect your spiritual truth and true self. Life will not be the same again.
Your Mercury can lead to a mental crisis or important rational insights. There could be a trickster energy. There will be a lot of sorting out of your thinking. This could affect friendships and trade issues.
Your Venus creates major crisis or breakthrough in love. Alternatively issues of your finances, inspiration in art, and indeed motor cars can be affected. There could be a fated new love relationship. There could be strong sexual urges. Clear any blocks to love or ‘heart walls’.
Your Mars creates outbursts and arguments. These can be constructive or destructive. Or there could be a surge of physical vitality.
Your Jupiter could bring expansiveness and sense of purpose, inspiration and ideals. You need to take care to keep this sort of expansion properly grounded and supported.
Your Saturn means either golden reaping because you are on course for your true life purpose, or it means professional downfall. This will be a huge milestone and turning point in your life. You will be forced to acknowledge that you must ‘get out of your prison’, or that you must be more realistic and dot the I’s and cross the t’s in your life and get things more grounded. Ideall,y this is the opening to take a seasoned step up. You will be tested around your use of responsibility. Suffering will become a huge and important issue for you to handle correctly. You may receive burdens.
Your Uranus means the Struck Tower card in the Tarot. inspiration, more expansive life or consciousness, revolution. Apparent eccentricity. Beware being heartless. Become the wild child, the free spirit, or the original genius. Ride out the creative wave that has picked you up.
Your Neptune means that you could realize that you are enmeshed in delusion or denial. You could find yourself in a fog. But this eclipse calls you to strip out the delusion.
Your Pluto ideally means empowerment. Face your shadow. Confront your inner demons. gain the strength to face your shadow. It could mean trauma, and the need not to be crippled by fear and your energy could become compulsive, driven or obsessive. You will need to develop ways to confront and understand and heal yourself. You face a personal challenge.
Your Chiron: you need to find healing modalities that will assist you to heal the existential wound indicated by your astrology birth chart. In this process, you could become the healer of others.
Your natal North Node/Rahu: you will become driven to manifest your incarnational life purpose, but you will need to purify this energy if you are to arrive at the destination it points to.
Your natal South Node/Ketu: chasms will open under your life, but with divine purpose to transform or end that life so that you are put in touch with spiritual meaning.

New Moon Solar Eclipse 11th August 2018 at 09.58 am.
The Sun and the Moon of this eclipse are 24 deg Vedic Cancer (using the sidereal zodiac of Vedic Astrology) in Ashlesha Nakshatra.
18 western Leo (using the Tropical Zodiac of western astrology).
Here is the Video:
And here are the charts:
Note that this is the third eclipse in July 2018 / August 2018 eclipse cycle. Usually an eclipse cycle has only two eclipses, so we have to be aware of the fact that July and August 2018 have heavy deep eclipse energies. The ‘window’ of eclipse activity will be much longer than usual. Our Minds and our lives will be affected by eclipse energies. We will have to sustain awareness of the possible dangers of this. And we will also have to find the buried gold meaning for our spiritual awareness, personal empowerment, success and happiness.
There will be positive results from this Eclipse if we are ‘on course’ for our true life path, or the eclipse consequences will be negative if our life is ‘off course’ for its spiritual meaning. Eclipses deeply polarize and internalise our life issues, and we must face our personal and collective shadows around these issues. If you cling to your false securities and stuck patterns, or resist the call of your evolution now, then these eclipses will leave you at best a robot pursuing a mechanical rump of a non-real life, or your life circumstances will quite possibly disintegrate because you are not living in accord with your truth.
So, with three eclipses in a run, July / August 2018 is a period to stand firm in the midst of what might feel like quite a storm, not give way to fear, not go limp, but be truly open to change. Cope with self-doubt and with felt loss of direction. An Eclipse may propel you to a needed new direction.
Please do remember, that Astrology is here to give us good quality perception of the energies and possibilities coming our way. It must never be formula or slack ‘impulse of the moment’ channelling. For our own good, our guiding astrological declaration needs to be intelligent, inspired and developmental. We are not here to experience these powerful July 2018 astrology energies passively or fatedly. Guided by good astrological declaration, we are here to ask these sort of questions:
How can I heal?
How can I empower myself?
How can I use these events to burn negative karmas?
How can I use these energies, including the terrible ones, to powerfully and beautifully manifest that very special spark of incarnational destiny that drove my soul to incarnate to achieve here in this particular lifetime?
Note that this eclipse report, like all my astrology readings and courses combines psychodynamic Western astrology (using the Tropical Zodiac) with the Incarnational Life Purpose focussed Vedic Astrology (that will only give accurate results if you use the Sidereal Zodiac with Lahiri Ayanamsha, or the degrees of difference from western Tropical zodiac).
I combine the nine planets of ancient Vedic Astrology with the newer discoveries whose energies have entered western consciousness over the last two and a half centuries: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, plus, most necessarily: the Wounded Healer: Chiron.
N.B. You really do need to check how the chart for this eclipse interacts with your natal chart. This way, you can understand and prepare for these Eclipse energies that will be entering your consciousness and entering your life. We have to try to deal with Eclipses negative consciousness and life effects, and we have to work out their positive divine meaning and embrace that.
Please note that the Dates and Times for this report are set to Ireland. Check with www.dateandtime.com for your local variations.
How to interpret this Eclipse:
Eclipses undam dammed up energy. They are associated with earthquakes and tsunamis. They can bring this sort of energy to the area of life covered by the house(s) they fall in in your birth chart. And note that it’s even stronger in your mind and your consciousness and the areas of your life if a planet in your birth chart is directly affected by an eclipse, especially a conjunction, opposition or square aspect. It is very important to check out beforehand where any eclipse falls in relation to your own birth chart.
Note that the Sun and Moon of this eclipse are conjunct Mercy which is Retrograde at this time. The Planet Mercury has been in rather a messy energy state since he turned retrograde at the end of Vedic sign of Cancer, in the Gandanta zone.
Mercury turns retrograde on July 26th at 29 deg Vedic Cancer.
Mercury is transiting now in the water sign of Cancer, and Mercury in Cancer is not easy for the mind. Intellect and communication can become over emotional and confused. Cancer seeks protection, and Mercury evasions can be dwelt in in an illusory attempt to shelter in unreal and futile ‘protection’. And remember, Mercury is also at this time receiving an opposition aspect from the Ketu-Mars conjunction in Capricorn. And note that what we have here is Retrograde Mercury in Vedic Cancer opposition Retrograde Mars in Vedic Capricorn. This is a problem combination for IT issues, for posts and communications, and also for misunderstandings and arguments. Mercury and Mars are enemies in Vedic Astrology. Mars doesn’t have the patience. Mercury over-discusses! Retrograde Mars explodes with anger at its frustration with Mercury. Patience, care and calm is needed at this time! AND note also that Mercury is conjunct driven Rahu!
Mercury is in Ashlesha Nakshatra (ruled by Mercury) at the moment of this Eclipse, and Ashlesha’s deity is ‘Sarpa’ or serpent, and so this will increase the tendency to arguments and hurt and wanting to defeat enemies. The ‘shakti’ of Ashlesha is ‘poison’, or troubled emotions, and so this needs to be handled with accompanying spiritual awareness. And in addition to all that, Mercury is also actually caught up with the eclipsed Sun and Moon on 11th August. So, during this Mercury Retrograde period, we will need to take extra special care of posts and communications, deliveries and our IT processes. We will need to take extra special effort to keep our minds and speech calm. Take care to avoid drama.
Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, so Gemini and Virgo people will feel pretty insecure while all this is going on, and will need to take steps to remain grounded.
In the write up of these three eclipses, I jot down the eclipse effects in relation to my own birth chart so that you can see that sort of analysis you need to study and develop awareness around so as to understand how these eclipses will affect you and your life. So, sharing my personal analysis here, so that it can be seen how to interpret eclipse effects, note that the Sun, Moon and Mercury of this eclipse are exactly conjunct my natal Pluto!
I see this as undamming ‘coming more into my power’ and of course we can do healing and empowerment work of different kinds to assist these processes, and that is one of the fundamental principles of the astrology of my readings and courses.
And Uranus of this eclipse is conjunct my North node in my birth chart which is bringing inspiration and a lot of change.
To analyse an Eclipse’s effect on you and your life, first check out your feeling about it, what are your intuitions? Maybe draw a Tarot Card. Then build on that, to note especially where the Moon of the eclipse falls in your birth chart. After that, note also the Nodal Axis of the eclipse chart, the eclipse Ascendant, and then key planets of the eclipse.
You can get an astrology reading from me if you want very dedicated and caring expert definition and advice: www.starwheelastrology.com/buyanastrologyreading
We feel eclipse energies as they are building. We feel them at the time of the Eclipse. And they last for longer.
The effects of lunar eclipse are pretty immediate.
The effects of solar eclipse take longer.
Note that eclipse’s effects are even stronger when another planet later on transits across the degree area of the earlier eclipse. Eclipses can leave a patch of stagnant energy in the heavens.
This will be triggered if another planet subsequently transits through this patch.
Maybe the Eclipse will smash structures in your life that have outlived their usefulness for your destiny. Or maybe the Eclipse will smash situations that are wrong for you true life path – painful though this may be both to experience and to understand. And note that maybe these eclipses will offer you opportunities for shared purpose with your loved ones to find their higher spiritual purpose.

An Eclipse Falls in a Key House in my Astrology Birth Chart How do I understand the meaning?
Find out where is the Moon of an upcoming Eclipse is in relation to your birth chart. You do need to know and understand this.
And you’d also need to look at where the eclipse Nodal axis and Ascendant are, and also check out where the significant planets of the particular upcoming eclipse chart are, in relation to your own birth chart.
One of the key things to look for are: what house does the eclipse fall in in my birth chart?
You can calculate the House number from Ascendant (called Lagna in Vedic Astrology) or secondly you can also calculate the position of an upcoming eclipse from your natal Moon (Janma) in your Astrology chart. But note that calculation from Ascendant tends to give the stronger prediction meaning.
I always check out an eclipse position in relation to both the Vedic birth chart (which must use the Sidereal Zodiac, for accuracy and is geared to declaration of your Incarnational Life Purpose),
the Western birth chart (which uses the Tropical Zodiac and declares our psychological self, with extra meanings to incorporate the Gods of Change, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto and Chiron your Wounded Healer).
So, here are some very brief one size fits all ‘standard meanings’ of what will be the effect in your life when an Eclipse falls in one of the Houses of your birth chart:
Remember, eclipses undam dammed up energies, so whether an eclipse’s effects on you are positive or negative will depend on how well you are ‘on course’ for your meant destiny in life.
It is essential to realize that if you are off-course, the eclipse will bring downfall, you need a collapse of that lifestyle in order to have any hope of getting your life on-course again.
And if we are on-course for our incarnational life purpose, then the eclipse will undam blocks and open up possibility and lead to golden reaping for us.
Eclipse effect on the Houses of your Vedic birth chart:
Here are some very simple, selective, ‘one size fits all’ buzzwords as to the meaning of an eclipse falling into any of your Houses in your birth chart:
(It is the sidereal zodiac Vedic birth chart that gives the surest result, though we must also look at the psychological declaration of your Western Astrology birth chart as well):
Eclipse in1st House: big shock or empowerment to issues of personal health and presence in the world, personal health, your appearance. Positive transformation of position in the world or Downfall.
Eclipse in 2nd House: big change in income, issues to do with mouth and teeth, your voice, value issues.
Eclipse in 3rd House: big change is issues of skills, talents, initiative, writing/communication, siblings.
Eclipse in 4th House: major change in issues to do with mother or home, domestic patterns, activities and happiness. Some change to do with car. Effect on your mother.
Eclipse in 5th House: earthquake in relationship with children, or in matters of creativity, or in romance, or in spiritual matters and past life merit. Effect on your children
Eclipse in 6th House: shakeup in areas such as legal issues, handling of enemies, personal health and immunity.
Eclipse in 7th House: changes in the balance between yourself and spouse.
Eclipse in 8th house: Changes in shared Financial Arrangements, Inheritance, Physical or emotional Vitality, or Metaphysical Studies.
Eclipse in 9th house: shakeup in area of beliefs, guru/teacher, higher learning.
Eclipse in 10th House: Major shakeup in career pending.
Eclipse in 11th House: major change/shake-up in issues of gains, profits, goals, ambitions, associates.
Eclipse in 12th House: huge effect on issues of loss, institution issues/connections, residence abroad.

The post Eclipse Falls in a Key House in Astrology Birth Chart appeared first on StarWheel Astrology Blog.
Jupiter turns Direct on 10th July 2018. So how to get the greatest benefit from this is crucial.
But, of course, the information in this blog is of applicable at any time.
And this Post also looks at the great benefits of a Future Life Progression Healing. This Healing is a blessing to have any time, but it came through for me as Jupiter was turning Direct, and so that’s why I am writing about it now.
When Jupiter is manifesting fully in our lives, with Direct motion in the Heavens, we have expansion, purpose, belief in what we are doing, divine blessing and higher learning. And you can get an Astrology Reading or enrol on one of my individually taught courses to go so much deeper into this and more.
And to understand where Jupiter will especially manifest in your life, at the time he is turning Direct, you need to look at where Jupiter is transiting now in your birth chart. Please see this detial and more, below.
And of course, we are helped at this time because there is also a most beautiful Jupiter trine Neptune aspect in the heavens now.
So, lower down in this post, I set out a lot more detail of how to understand your Jupiter or any of your planets, below, but first of all, please watch the video, and then read about Future Life Progression Healing:
FUTURE LIFE PROGRESSION:
I’d like to mention more about Future Life Progression Healing, now, that my wife, Maggie Pashley does. Future Life Progression is a branch of Hypnosis. You are asked to imagine or visualise a couple of scenes of your future life, one after the other, at two suggested dates in the future. You can imagine scenes say 5 yrs. ahead and 10 yrs. ahead. And this can give you such SURPRISING purpose and hope.
Please do note that we can be trapped into pessimistic/helpless life patterns now. This can be because we have unconscious, negative, suffering belief about our Future. And we may be unaware of this.
But Future Life Progression Healing can give us:
Even when difficult circumstances may be seen, we can learn:
How to understand the meaning.
How to prepare.
How to avert.
What changes may be needed in order to create a different Future for ourself.
Maggie Pashley can be contacted by email shown on her website. www.maggiepashley.com.
MORE ABOUT THE ASTROLOGY OF JUPITER:
Looking now more into the detail of understanding your Jupiter (or any planet), here is a mention of more of the astrological techniques involved, and of course you can have an astrology reading from me, or you can enroll on one of my astrology courses. For the Astrology of July 2018 see our Astrology and Healing Newsletter. And especially see my blog post on the powerful Longest Eclipse of the 21st Century: The Lunar Eclipse of 27th July 2018.
I use both the western birth chart using Tropical Zodiac, and also the Vedic birth chart which must use Sidereal Zodiac. The thrust of the Western Zodiac is more our psychological unfoldment. Western Astrology is essentially psychodynamic (with special dimensions of Chiron and the Outer Planets and Evolutionary Astrology), whereas the thrust of the Vedic chart is based essentially on the unfoldment of our incarnational Life Purpose and Destiny.
So, for example, if Jupiter is transiting in your 4th House in your Vedic birth chart when he turns Direct, then expansionary work will resume on your home. Whereas if Jupiter is transiting in your 2nd House, then expansionary work will resume in the area of income generation and speech/expression. Whereas if Jupiter occupies your 6th House natally, then you could experience legal issues but also defence against disease.
It’s so helpful, in fact essential, to realize that the planets each have a Divine energy, but that we, ourselves, experience each of our planets through the three filters of Sign, House and Aspect. So, see my video journey: my Meet Jupiter presentation:
and this blog post: https://blog.starwheelastrology.com/jupiter-jupiter-transits-2017-jupiter-uranus-opposition/
Please note that I have one of these videos and blog posts for each of all the Vedic and Western planets.
For each planet I have a video journey to meet the Divine planet and contact and heal how that planet manifests in your birth chart, for students on my courses, as well.
And in fact, if you have an Astrology Reading from me or enrol on one of my Astrology Courses, I can also draw on really sophisticated techniques to weigh up how each planet will manifest in your life, and also how your planets treat each other.
For example, Vedic Astrology assigns strength scores to planets (Digbala) and Dignity scores (how the planet gets on with the plant that rules the sign he occupies in your Vedic Chart).
There’s also Ashtakavarga Score: How supported your consciousness and your life is for each of the twelve signs of your birth chart that a planet transits through.
There are also the wonderful Varga Charts (Divisional Charts) each of which says something so special and powerful about a particular area of your life (you can enroll on my wonderful Varga Course and study each of your Varga or Divisional charts, and learn so much about each special area of your destiny and how to heal and empower it).
And then there’s the Avasthas technique which is within my Foundation Vedic Astrology Course: www.mastervedicastrology.com and here we lean so much from the score for the standing of each planet in our chart and in our life, and also for how the planets treat each other: does one of your planets really boost another of your planets? Or does one of your planets really trash another of your planets?
Lastly, I would mention that Vedic Astrology has a magnificent and powerful declaration of Predictive Periods unfolding at predictable dates in our lives. In fact, these periods, called Dasas, are even more powerful than transits about setting the scene in our lives and predicting events. And so, if Jupiter has good standing in our Vedic birth chart, we will manifest expansion, inspiration, feel wonderful Purpose when we enter Jupiter Dasa. But we’d also need to check if any of our other planets would be harming Jupiter or cutting into him.
And we also need to check if our expansive Jupiter might be difficult to manage, for example, if we have a Weak Sun or a Gandanta Sun. If we have Chiron conjunct Jupiter in our birth chart, the energy of Jupiter that we will manifest risks being particularly glitzy, vulgar or over expansive. Saturn opposition Jupiter can really block our Jupiter expression and lead to unconfidence and self-doubt.
