Super New Moon: Eclipse and Merc Retro!

img_20160830_133756.jpgThe Next New Moon September 1 is a SOLAR ECLIPSE in LEO. This lunar month we have THREE eclipse events. This lunar month begins with a new moon eclispe between 2 Full Moons that are also Lunar Eclipses. This is an extra powerful New Moon. New Moon time brings fresh energy as we begin to plan for the month ahead. A New Moon eclipse marks a new phase in our *fate* especially if the eclipse aligns with a point or planet in your natal chart (or your loved ones). The New Moon eclipse occurs at 15°16′ Leo (sidereal chart; that’s 8°16′ Virgo tropical/Western chart.) The doors of fate, into the rich depths are open. The serpent Rahu/Ketu align unleashing great power. Our karma is sensitive to the ripples of time right now.
In the sign of Leo, it is time to stand strong in your sovereign destiny, focus on making your life ordered, simple and prosperous (Jupiter, Venus and Mercury are aligned in Virgo the Wise). Avoid at all costs starting any material events, this is time to honour achievements, plan how to lead your life from here on in. To meditate and turn your attention to your unfolding destiny – but not to “push” anything. The serpent energy is so powerful & unpredictable that our human perspectives are easily shadowed and chaos can be called forth as much as anything else. This is the Serpent, Dark Goddess energy. She’s beautiful but she’s POTENT. Show her the respect she requires so she can bless you.

Avoid alcohol and keep the vibes steady. This is a sacred time to observe the tides of the planets and stars all around us. To be with all of creation. As the eclipse vibrations settle after the next full moon (also an eclipse remember?! September 17) you can then begin to shake it all up again – if that’s what you need to do.
Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow moving from Virgo back into Leo. Time to uncover more details and look at it differently. But don’t put any plans in motion if you can help it – 3 eclipses in 30.days and a Mercury retrograde? Surprises, secrets revealed and important information overlooked or not seen bubbles up to the surface.

  1. I have been pursuing this job for 3 years, and finally in May began the process of being hired. Finally they have set the date for me to sign up, do the drug test, pass the background check and physical at the home office. This happens to be set for Thursday, Sept 1 while Merc is retro and the Solar So I hoped that it falling in my 2nd house that day would be good but now ..after reading above, not so sure… I will get a start date for next week or so. Please let me know if “i should avoid at all costs or this is a good thing?”


    1. That’s a good question! When we astrologers say avoid starting new stuff if you can, I mean more like – don’t submit the resume on that day…or sign a contract if you can reasonably avoid it. As you’ve been working hard since May and for even longer to make this happen of course just go ahead with full trust in the process. Make sure you read things carefully and give yourself extra time to fill out papers, confirm they are sent or if dealing with transport allow a little time for intereuptions. Eclipse times bring opportunity too…if opportunity arrives at that time take it. As an astrologer I advise against trying to make stuff happen, force events in your favour during the big energy of eclipses. If it’s already happening, flow with your life. I began dating my now partner on an eclipse and he came back into my life 3 weeks earlier at another eclipse. These things happen sometimes! It was very intense for sure but it works well…much depends on your natal chart too. Pls also check that you are using a sidereal chart not tropical
      All my astrology is sidereal zodiac (Lahiri)
