Like everything in Astrology it depends on your natal chart. The keys to look for in an eclipse reading is look for the four major aspects of oppositions, conjunctions, squares, and trines. Of course it does get much more complicated than the four major aspects. There are a few astrologers out there that would state that the effects of an eclipse will be felt for the duration of six weeks. This theory still needs more evidence from case studies in my opinion to accept. Indeed, you can do case studies in Astrology. Some of the best ones out there are for medical astrology.
This eclipse season brings us two within a fortnight, 14 days, with a lunar eclipse on the 7th of August, and a solar eclipse on the 21st of August. Both eclipses are in Leo which is a fixed fire sign. Known for loyalty to friends, dedication to family, and amazing hair if you are a female Leo. What needs to be pointed out is that the Sun is ruled by Leo. Some Leos’ might not like to have their brilliance covered up, even temporarily, by that pesky Moon on the 21st. As the word fixed would indicate there is a quality of fixed signs not to change much or to be ridged with a resistance to adaptability. The other fixed signs are Taurus for earth, Scorpio for water, and Aquarius for Air.
In celebration of these two eclipses the Two Ravens Study Group is putting on a pot luck and moon ceremony on both days. In addition, I will be reading eclipse charts of the ceremony participants.
