“The world will change less in accordance with man’s determinations than with woman’s divinations.” Claude Bragdon
Two asteroids are featured prominently during Sunday’s eclipse – Lillith and Juno.
Lillith is the asteroid which governs the repressed feminine and Juno – the asteroid of commitment. Juno also represents where we can feel trapped in our lives or in relationships.
Both asteroids are conjunct the Sun at the time of the Lunar Eclipse.
Venus is trine Uranus during the eclipse which is an aspect which can be very freeing and can bring about breakthroughs and events which can alter the limitations in the way you think about love, relationships, pleasure and abundance. These perceptions and events can have a surprising and unexpected quality and can accelerate personal evolution.
These aspects apply to both men and women and to their inner feminine and the way that it gets expressed in the outside world.
The Sabian symbols associated with Juno and Lillith during the eclipse are : ” A group of young people sit in spiritual communion around a campfire” and ” A person teaching true inner knowledge of the new world to their students.”
It is in the doing with awareness that the learning comes.” William Horwood
Saturn’s transit through the late degrees of Scorpio has been a challenging time for many people with the fixed signs – Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo and Taurus – placed prominently in their charts. There has been an increased likelihood that unresolved emotional issues – previously thought to have been resolved – could bubble up to the surface once again potentially creating a stormy time.
Saturn’s entry into Sagittarius on September 17 may feel like a relief as it signals an end to the retrograde cycle which began in mid June. The key is related to developing a new awareness.
Mars and Venus are in Leo now -one of the fixed signs – it bodes well under this influence to see how issues of projection and self esteem may be creating smokescreens or may be blocking personal evolution.
Mercury will station retrograde on the 17th as well – look to the two days before the Mercury station and the two days after for perceptions or guidance that may come representing a culmination of information.
The Sabian symbol for Mercury’s retrograde station is, “After the storms of winter a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction.”
