Lugubrious or Euphoric: First Eclipse 2017

ecleo21715

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2017

Full Moon in Leo

Full Snow Moon

February 10/11, 2017

By Maharani Rutan©

As I began to write this I easily recalled my thoughts in my predictions of 2017 where I stated, “The structure of the family which is represented by Leo, spirituality represented by Pisces, and freedom and innovation are all part of this revolution.” (Read more here). Perhaps I was mistaken; maybe it is happening right now.

When I sat down to write this it was one night before Mercury finally stations and the clarity finally sets in. Perhaps it did for others too as we are in the middle of a revolution. But before anything can be re-organized we must understand that revolt will happen. Not everyone can adjust to change, and change is difficult. But this is what people voted for and this is what people wanted; or did they?

ecleo2175

This is the stepping stone of a formation for a new nation through the Aquarius/Leo axis. Leo wants to be in charge and Aquarius wants the freedom so how can two worlds come together to form a union. The only way this can happen is to alter separate ego centrism from “I” thinkers to “We” the people. The first lunar eclipse of 2017 will do just that; opening our eyes while we hear the Lions roar.

The first penumbral lunar eclipse will not only open the door for the continual revolutions within our society but also to the structures of our family, especially Leo’s. This is the first in the series of eclipses that Leo’s will experience until 2018. On the other hand, the metamorphism is so huge that this eclipse is making it known to the whole world that it is here.

ecleo2174

The way this eclipse will do this is by its visibility through most of North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe. In the Vedic Philosophies it states that wherever the eclipse is visible it will affect the countries it impacts. The lunar eclipse will have a long enduring influence on all fixed signs due to its placement in Aquarius/Leo as both are in fixed signs; therefore all those under those signs (Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio and Taurus) will be magnified. I will go into more detail later into the blog. Even though the eclipse itself will be difficult to observe it will have a rippling effect on the collective beings of earth.

Unlike a total lunar eclipse or a partial eclipse, a penumbral lunar eclipse touches only the outer shadow of the earth and falls on the side of the moon. It’s almost as if it is a lunar eclipse but it is more refined, similar to the eclipse of August 2016 where it was almost an eclipse, yet not. However, we will see a shading of the moon while some will notice nothing at all. It is dramatic and it due to last about 4 to 4 and half hours from start to finish. To the human eye it may be seen only for an hour or two, depending upon the location.

ecleo2171

The Penumbral Eclipse will begin its movement at approximately 5:34pm EST on February 10, 2017, 22:34 UTC time. As it continues to move, the moon will become full at approximately 7:33pm EST/4:33 PST. This will be the Maximum Eclipse and it will be visible in the Americas at that time. Leo Penumbral Eclipse will move away and ends at 9:53pm EST February 10, 2017, 02:53 UTC time. It is incredible as such a beautiful subtle eclipse as this has not been duplicated in the past.

We had a similar Lunar eclipse February 9, 2009 at 20-29 degrees in Leo. Hence, this year’s eclipse is at 22 degrees in Leo. Looking back at 2009, so many things are repeating again and again. The energy of the eclipse will be very intense and will be felt as early as 7-10 days prior to the eclipse and 7-10 days after for many, depending upon how intense the persons VPA chart is in areas of Aquarius/Leo. As a result, it places this energy around the 18th of February, just in time for another eclipse. But for now, let’s see how the comparison and overlay of history will impact our future.

ecleo21719

Some of the topics in the United States that were focal points in 2009 included The William sisters playing against each other with Serena winning. (Have you seen the results this year? History has repeated) Unemployment was 7.6%. The first sextuplets were born in the United States but were turned into a reality TV show which flopped within months. Barack Obama took office in January 2009. Judge Sonia Sotomayor became the first Latina to sit on the United State Supreme Court. Today, if President Trump can stop himself from sending troops anywhere February 15-19, 2017 and August of 2017 he will have changed history.

This eclipse is the re-stimulation, to some degree, of issues that were delegated in August 2008, and February of 2009. It is not an end of a cycle but a beginning of a new direction. Those issues were not settled; therefore the current focus will be primarily on home, family, and health. It may be that it will be an end of a relationship or a partner becomes apathetic. For fixed signs, and those that have Aquarius and Leo in their chart, it is advised to look at issues of August and September of 2008, and February of 2009. The universe is making sure you do not make the same mistakes again.

vl2177

This is also a time that Aquarius/Leo’s are finding themselves; finding out who they are how they are in accordance with their relationships. Both Aquarius’ and Leo’s often worry about what others think, it is about looking inside and standing out for who they are. Original ingenuity are ideal to bring humility and work, independent of others.

The full moon or lunar eclipse is always about getting rid of the old to make room for the new. With a flip of a coin the best of both worlds will be at your fingertips. However, in the Vedic Philosophies we always recommend that people understand, and are warned to practice, the same rituals as advised during retrograde, but with even more discipline during the eclipse.

ecleo2173

Do not sign any documents, began, reunite, or end any kind of relationships. Do not begin any projects that are crucial. Do not make any major purchases. I wish I could say do not make any major decisions 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the eclipse.

When a lunar eclipse occurs, the earth is transitory between the Sun and the Moon, producing the Full Moon that we are familiar with every month – but in this case, the configuration is faultless – the consultation of the Moon is ample. The force of the Full Moon is abundant, yet she is absolutely covered for a couple of hours by the earth’s shadow; however, this will be a near miss. The Sun and Moon inhabit opposite Astrological signs, therefore underlining the specific polarization characteristic in those signs.

ecleo2172

During the epoch of consultation, the Moon’s encouraging light is temporary. We may experience a catastrophe of deficiency, and the specific sort of deficiency depends collectively upon the astrological sign in which the eclipse occurs, and personally upon the sign and houses it falls on. This eclipse is predominantly relationship oriented – and our connections with others can be separated, tested, or abruptly fused together as the shock calls one to action.

There is a deep concern for emotional states and desires within the context of the house, sign, and planetary aspects affected. To fully increase in value the potential of the lunar eclipse, we must search both houses and signs that are brought into play. Where the Moon is – we can confront our demons, old habits and fears, and where the Sun is we may find the means to embrace a release from whatever bondage we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are opportunities for deeper understanding, and finding a balance in our lives.

ecleo2177

Since Vedic Philosophies consider eclipses as a disturbance of the cosmos it is also determined that eclipses often set forth regeneration. Eclipse in a fire sign usually brings forth, to those countries where the eclipses are visible, things such as dissatisfaction of its people about the ruler, people becoming ill due to infections or unknown or incurable diseases, even death of an important person to that country. However, this is an axis taking into account two polarities.

Mixed with everything else is a sudden change of weather. Damage of produce and dairy due to pests or infestations, especially in farming areas, are also likely to happen during the lunar eclipse. However, all does not have to be disheartening; it is also a time that the universe will give its support to those that are humble in nature to be surprisingly ingenious and give them the strength and creativity to find the ideas they need to move forward in life. The same humble people will use their creativity to open those avenues which were not seen before, but this means to close the door to the mundane and take on a path of the unknown which can be frightening.

ecleo21710

The Moon in Leo marks a time of determination and charisma. Ruled by the Sun, Leo creates a guidance of cordiality, eagerness, and delight. People may feel inspired, gracious, and liberal. It is a good time to chase romance, be collective, and to help others. Like the Lion that denotes Leo, people may feel self-assured but also require gratitude and appreciation. Attention needs to be taken to avoid overemotional spectacles while attempting to clutch the limelight, or in management positions.

A Lunar Eclipse is considered by its influence on passionate feed-backs. Psychic feeling and mystical predispositions during a lunar eclipse occur because of the lunar energies. So take this energy and put it toward positive endeavors such as writing in your journal and embracing your feelings on paper. Remember, things that happen within the 3-week period of time during and after the eclipse usually have long lasting effect. If the eclipse happens on your sun it will have a great impact on your life, but if there is a clash it may be a difficult 6 months. To find out more about where your placements are I would suggest you speak to a western astrologer, either Leslie or Lee. If not, please refer to the link to find other recommended astrologers (here)

The power of this Full Moon and the eclipse can be particularly tough for those who were born under a Full Moon PHASE, as well those that have significant houses in Aquarius/Leo, not to mention those with fixed Sun Signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus).

The Leo energy can occasionally cause us to be more prejudiced, persistent, gratified, irritated, arrogant, narcissistic, and superior. It’s tougher (but not impossible) to make modifications or be flexible, since the Moon is the closest ‘Planet’ to Earth, and this satellite literally zips around the Zodiac, finalizing its circuit in less than a month. It also touches us more deeply than most Planets.

The information which I am about to present is not based upon western or eastern astrology rather; it is based upon a philosophy. This philosophy derives its roots on placeholders which use the methodology that there are no absolutes. Though astrology and numerology can be used as placeholders (like a name tag) the mixture is what makes a soul.

These are general tendencies based upon the methodology of VPA (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic) theories and not to be mistaken for astrology. Those that have had an opportunity to be in communication with me have had an opportunity to have their own charts done and I recommend that you now take this information and manipulate your columns to foretell your six-month outcome.

veda

Primary placeholders that will be affected by this eclipse will be fixed signs therefore, I will be emphasizing Leo/Aquarius primary and move into those that may be least affected.

Fixed Signs

(Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus)

fix

This is the 2nd axis eclipse of Aquarius series eclipses; the first was Aquarius/Virgo axis in August of 2016 which was focused around work (read more about it here). This continual transformation will affect fixed signs until 2018. However, Saturn in Scorpio (According to Vedic) left Scorpio (read about it here) and moved into Sagittarius (read about it here) as of January 26, 2017, but he will be back in June so it is a breather for you – this also affects every fixed sign. The only thing that is an individual journey is for Taurus which is Jupiter (read about it here) transit in Virgo (according to Vedic) until September 2017, so enjoy the ride.

Leo: Welcome to your first eclipse. This is a journey of transformation for you. Jupiter is kissing your forehead with some wonderful financial opportunities if you choose to take them. Saturn is also kissing you. Education and learning pursuits are awesome for you. Relationships can be great as well if you don’t have trust issues. Prepare yourself to transform your physical appearance and introspect on an autonomous philosophy. Have a deeper understanding of who you are and where you are going. With the Aquarius axis there is a greater chance to become very fickle minded and yearning to make changes in relationships may force an alteration upon your appearance. If things are stable, then you will maintain effort, if not you might decide to leave it. There is a possibility to achieve good standing in the community as a whole.

Aquarius: This is not your eclipse however you will be affected as it is a transformative eclipse like no other. Look back the issues of the August 2016 eclipse (read more here). Saturn is not so bad for you since it has moved away from Scorpio. Things will start to get better in your professional life but your worrisome and emotional outbursts could cause problems with children and work. This could also cause problems and disturbance in your relationships, especially having to do with trust and constancy. Then again, if you could take that negative energy and place it where Jupiter wants you to, which is in research, you could find outstanding results. Don’t move or relocate in February, otherwise you will not be happy. Health related issues may cause you disturbance and you may rethink your relationship, asking if it is worth keeping. The focus is more on any kind of partnership and be careful, you may have enemies you may not be aware of. Finally, do not sign any legal documents.

Scorpio: You should be feeling much better. You have no eclipses; Saturn has now moved away for a short while (read about it here). But this does not mean certain aspects won’t affect you. Saturn now is testing your mental state of mind and if you are not careful it will affect your health. The problematic areas could be occupation, monies, diet, and dental issues. It’s time to count on you, not on others. But on the other hand Jupiter is kissing you and telling you to travel for work, or travel to school if you change your mind about what you want to study or what you want to do – its ok. Spring time is not a good time for an engagement or a relationship. Just wait, your time is coming. Be a little bit more patient with family and children. This eclipse wants you to build a foundation that is about honor, not about money. It is about your family, your own reputation and how people see you. Build the foundation but don’t let people walk over you.

Taurus: Mercury is still going to touch upon you in May, but it’s not entirely bad; sometimes you need that down time. Saturn has moved out of Scorpio and moving into Sagittarius. Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom to realize that we have to go through a reality check. Saturn may make you feel as though you don’t have the support you need, financially and emotionally, and finding a solution may be painful and slow. This may mean you may have to take a deeper spiritual journey that will bring up pain from the past. However, Jupiter in Virgo is still on your side, even if you find February and May to be profitable it may be slow, but you will be able to pay off some debts. Be careful of your health. It is time to get yourself involved in religious activities, reconsider how your emotions affect your subconscious and your relationships, the structure of your home, and the relationship with your family and your parents.

Mutable Signs

(Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Gemini)

mut
Though this eclipse may not have as significant role on you dear Pisces, just remember the universe is preparing you to end a cycle which began March 20, 2015 (read about it here). I spoke in-depth about your transformative eclipse in my predictive blog of 2017 (here). Now, you can join your fellow Virgo and breathe a sigh of relief. Dearest Virgo enjoy your time with Jupiter as pleasures of Jupiter continue to bless you until September 12, 2017 when you pass the torch to Libra. But as you know, you don’t like change and as a mutable sign, 3 to 4 times a year Mercury always stirs your feathers which rules Gemini. The only things Gemini’s are really affected by are those that might affect air signs.

Pisces: Your times of transformation are soon ending but remember, this eclipse is just as transforming since the effects are as crucial. The rooted issue of transformation is going to be your journey into the abyss. Don’t think negative of Saturn in Sagittarius; actually, Saturn is going to kiss you. Don’t get so jigged in the bitterness of what could, or should, have been; it’s a waste of time and energy. You will see that you will land a good job, but with it there is going to be heavy responsibility and lots of travel. You will be tired and frustrated. Don’t you love traffic? You have to decide what price will you pay. Do some spiritual works then decide, if not, the last eclipse will decide for you. Read about all your eclipses here and read about my predictions here.

Virgo: My dear Virgo your frustration, worries, and doubts are enough to cause IBS to anyone, but how come you don’t have it? Saturn in Sagittarius may cause you to feel insecurity in your employment. At times you may feel unacknowledged, misjudged, an unnecessary heaviness, and discouraged. These punishing circumstances may possibly source an interruption away from work too. Unnecessary repairs, health of a mother, and personal relationships may bring sadness. Do not take out any loans unless it is an emergency. At the same time, Jupiter is fighting Saturn for you. If are planning a family, there is a strong indication of this. Use your mind for Judgement, don’t take chances. Keep your emotions in check as emotional outbursts could cause some problems. You must adapt to new circumstances and responsibilities at work, and take time to retreat and get rest. This eclipse will ask the question to what lengths will you go to accomplish what you want?

Sagittarius: Now that Saturn has moved from Scorpio to your sign, believe me when I tell you it does not have to be bad (read more about it here). Saturn is a hard teacher but he gives wonderful gifts. Saturn may cause emotional, physical, and professional ups and downs. There can be some ego issues. Sometimes your marriage may suffer and unnecessary arguments may be possible. At the same time, Jupiter is fighting for you too; this is one of those favorable times in your professional life. If you decide to change a job or business its ok. But don’t move now or start any kind of educational stuff; even try not to sit for any exams as I can’t say you will have good results. Sagittarius loves to travel so go and have fun. This is a time to experience what the meaning of everything is; go for a long journey, explore new worlds “boldly go where no man has ever gone before.” On earth silly. Explore and have fun.

Gemini: Be careful as Mercury could cause some problems, but also be careful of ego too. There may be some burden at work and you may even have to be more mobile. Personal and family relationships will need to be handled with kid gloves. If you continue like this, you will have stomach related issues; remember, your body is an incubator to your soul and Saturn is going to make you know this. Jupiter has been giving you luck but now you may have some issues with Jupiter. Your home or vehicle may cause problems and financial expenses may cause problems this spring. You must invest more time in religious studies. It is time to change your thinking patterns and the way you communicate. Be careful of gossip and there is plenty of travel.

Cardinal Signs

(Aries, Capricorn, Libra, and Cancer)

Though this eclipse is not directly impacting you Aries, but indirectly you will be impacted. Right now you may be on an invisible high with Mars in Aries followed by Venus in Aries. By the time this eclipse comes let’s see how you feel. But I believe your fellow Capricorn is feeling much better as Jupiter in Virgo may be treating them better. Libra is done with the eclipse stage and in September they will get the glowing torch from Virgo to have abundance. But poor Cancers will go through their own transformation in 2018. So right now margaritas are quite appropriate for them.

Aries: Even though this eclipse is not impacting you directly, as a fire sign you will be impacted indirectly. Perhaps Mars and Venus are treating you kindly, but everything must be in moderation. Saturn in Sagittarius is not so bad for you, actually it may bring some great opportunities. If you have been looking for employment it is on its way, but don’t expect that it is going to be an easy transition as it will come with plenty of expectations. There is possibility of work in another country or related to a different culture. It is time to grow up and be more optimistic, Jupiter is not on your side. Though you have not been taking good care of yourself I can’t say much about your health. Difficulties at your existing work may cause issues if you stay. You may become too emotional with friends and coworkers; you need to be careful. Give to others with your heart otherwise you will not get what you need.

Capricorn: I can truly say your worrisome nature is just as bad as Virgo’s but your spunk is something out of this world. It has been a hard road for you. Because you work as hard as Virgos do, Saturn is now questioning you. Efficiency in your occupation may be at its all-time low because of a need for rest and sleep. Your habit of overthinking, doubts, and overanalyzing has to stop now; it’s causing pressure. Though Jupiter would like to be your friend, you may be your worst enemy. The added pressure may cause you to be a little sharp with people because of invisible adversaries, that do not exist, which are eventually causing you illness. Instead, put your focus on your finances and save for a rainy day. It is time to heal and transform. It is time to look inwards and find out who you are and be honest with yourself in order to change.

Libra: You do not have any eclipses and it’s a matter of going through the motions. However, now is the time to transform as you must be worthy enough to carry the torch of Jupiter in the fall. This means you cannot carry the past baggage with you, it’s too heavy. Put aside the anxieties and doubts of your employment and I would not be surprised if your new position takes you to places you have never been before as Saturn sets the stage to give you the gifts it has promised you. Remember, Saturn was about family, work, and who you are, so they may be a calling soon. Jupiter, however, is not sympathetic with you. It may be because you may have indulged or had some sort of an egotistical attitude indicating that it’s time to go into a possible hermit mode. The only thing Jupiter will help with is your health if you have been ill. It’s really time to just get out and get creative. It is time to consider personal growth. Cherish the friends who are there for you and leave behind those that do not support you.

Cancer: Enjoy the margaritas while you can. Next year your eclipses will transform you. It’s now time to accept everything with gratitude, especially when the great teacher, Saturn, is on your side by giving you professional growth, clearing away debris you have been facing, paying off debts, or a new job. On top of that, you have been double kissed by Jupiter. Good work on your ethics. A few marriage glitches may happen, but nothing you can’t handle. Family and personal relationships may go well. You will now have the ability to feel financially secure and to feel safe and sound; wow, is there any more sugar I can put on this cake?

What I have presented are general tendencies based upon VPA. Each individual’s characteristics will be different depending upon the individual VPA chart. This is not astrology and I highly suggest if you need an astrological reading to contact Leslie Hale or Lee Stillwater, or any of my other recommend Astrologers here. If you are looking for a Vedic Astrologer, those readings are very complex and could take up to 30 days.

Moon in Leo means you may have a sensitive need to sparkle and be admired by others. You may express your feelings in a childlike manner – either spiritedly or theatrically. You have a natural attraction with children. You have an ability for shaping and leading. You nurture others by giving admiration and cheering them to be robust, brave, and courageous. You view your mother as a majestic, intense or respected person, and look for freedom, cordiality, and power in that relationship.

ecleo2174

During the Lunar Eclipse we must try to look at life in a different aspect. You might want to re-write the aspirations like this: “I need help in forming what I vision of and power to manifest happiness through this process. I need the information to love more and the ability to engage in a positive environment.”

Moon in Leo is Playful, Bold, Dramatic, Managerial, Organized, AND MOODY. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with Orange and Rosemary Oil and chant Psalm 65. Chant, in silence, Psalm 40 three times. Allow yourself to chant these words every night until the next moon cycle and let the glory of the higher power enter your body, mind and soul.

ecleo21711

The Lunar eclipse also needs extra care. For this lunar eclipse purchase a mauve candle, carve your name through to the wick, anoint the candle with passion fruit oil, and chant Psalm 51.

There are four mantras for this eclipse; 2 for the lunar eclipse (one difficult and one easy) and 2 for the full moon in Leo. It is recommended that these mantras be a course of your daily habits until 2018.

In addition to these mantras, I recommend a Vedic Spiritual Bath; though this year’s recipes are not available to the public, those that did receive it please follow it.

This Siddha mantra uses the universal fundamentals that oversee each chakra: Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. The purpose of this mantra is the to keep us in balance and from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy. This mantra will aid significantly in the peaceable and pleasant transition to new and positive energy states. With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is the slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.

2171

By Maharani Rutan©

I began this blog so many times, yet my thoughts took many detours and I could not stay focused. I tried everything from almonds, meditation, even a good night sleep. Yet, I did not listen to my own advice that was right in front of my face which was Mercury Retrograde would cause writers block starting December 01, 2016 to January 27, 2017 (read more about here).

As I waited Christmas Day arrived and my patience had the best of me. I was awoken Christmas morning at 5 am with my thoughts running wild and could not sit still. I walked my dog down the street, which most of the time is busy, crowded, and loud with cars passing by. I then realized that the mistiness of the morning dew, and the stillness of the streets, is exactly how we will begin our passage through January of 2017.

2173
Even though I wanted reminisce about what we have lost in 2016, and what we should be thankful for as part of the EndNote to my predictive blog of 2016 (read about it here), I have decided to talk about these in a separate blog as politics and sentiments have already plagued the media and the topics of our daily conversations. In my deepest thoughts all I can relate 2017 to is a song by Ziggy Marley called “Changes”. His lyrics ripple through my visions of 2017 as if knows exactly what I am about to say.

There’s so much beauty in every breath that we take
Oh, tell me, can you relate?
Needs of the many and the wants of the few
You can find religion in the freedom you choose

There’s so much hurt all over the place
And I can tell by the look on your face
And there’s one thing that we’ve got to say

Changes, changes
(Danny man say, brighten up your day and never feel no weight)
For ordinary people now…

2177

Every month in 2017 is about promoting mankind to get closer to significant changes. I have been talking about changes for a long time as well as history repeating. We are losing immovability and firmness in our environment and in ourselves. The Earth is shifting and this will bring about change. As a result, these changes will bring about massive emotional and planetary shifts both internally and externally. These will be natural changes to our relationships with ourselves and the world around us.

jan
January will begin with the beautiful love of Venus Pisces. We will crave this love during the introspection time of Mercury retrograde that will enter Sagittarius and Station on January 08, 2017. But it will not completely straighten out yet (read more about it here).

The full moon Sagittarius/Capricorn on January 12, 2017 first must grace our skies and Mercury retrograde must enter Capricorn. This is where Mercury was when he first began his journey on December 1, 2016. Now that the sun enters the friendly Capricorn/Aquarius our first non-political President in a long time will be inaugurated our 45th President of the United States on January 20, 2017 which is also the day after the sun enters Aquarius. Finally, when the new moon is in Capricorn/Aquarius, Mercury retrograde will leave to go into his own la la land and set us free to speak what we mean, and boy will we.

2176
With Mars in Pisces/Aries on January 28, 2017, men, especially, say what they mean. Perhaps women will remain quite for the moment. This will not change any of the hardships for Scorpios, and their brothers and sisters who carry Scorpio in their charts, with difficult lessons until April 06, 2017 (according to VPN not Western). Also, it will even glorify Virgos and earth signs while Jupiter remains in their sign and they are able to speak their minds.

I am sure by now you are wondering why it is that there are two signs associated with the transits and transformation. Those who are aware with the association of the VPA charts understand that the Sun/Moon make up a gray picture where the true answers lay and where life begins. Humanity is an evolutionary transformation gene, therefore we change with the time and history is the string of lessons in which we evolve, transmute, and transform. This will be an absolute in February.

feb
February is probably will be the toughest month for many people for those who have any Fire or water in their chart. Some will have natural endings others will begin their spiritual journey therefore they may have to leave behind people places or things that no longer serve them purpose. This can be tough as separation and tough decisions are difficult for all of us.

Venus joins the freedom of speech on February 1st through Pisces/Aries; and they too will now speak their minds. All of humanity will be as direct as can be and the world will be changing as we know it. The structure of the family which is represented by Leo, spirituality represented by Pisces and freedom and innovation are all part of this revolution. However, Virgos will not be able to speak for too long as Jupiter according to VPA will be retrograding on February 04 through June 9th, 2017 which means everything including their money may slow down as they see it. This also means that they have to concentrate more on family matters.

21713
On February 10, 2017, we will have our first eclipse. This will be a Lunar Eclipse with a full moon in Leo/Aquarius revisiting topics of 1998 and 2008. On February 14, 2017 be careful with money; you might lose it or the way financial transactions take place you may be confused by them. So if it does not seem real or too good to be true it probably is.

Within 2 weeks, on February 26, 2017, a New Moon Pisces (VPA states that it is an eclipse in Aquarius due to the date) will close their series of eclipses. The topics would be concerning issues from 1979 and 2015. They will now close the door to something and open another door to something else. As far as I can see there is not another eclipse scheduled for Pisces until 2034. However, this does not mean the chaos and unexpected things will stop because of the eclipses.

This closes the chapter of eclipse series in Pisces that began March 20, 2015.  The series as follows, March 20, 2015 (read about it here),  March 8, 2016 (read about it here), September 16, 2016 (read about it here) and the last February 26, 2017.  These series are also reflecting back to the 2008 and 1998.  Therefore, this is strike 3 if you are a Pisces and you have not made significant strides on the things you may need to change, then you may not receive any more chances.  Now the fiddler plays.

march

March may also not be so easy for many fire and earth signs as luck and speed slow down for the natives.

21734
Beginning of March Jupiter, the planet of expansion which is retrograding in Virgo, will shake up Virgos to make sure they are awake. It’s a reminder that Virgos must be on their toes. While Venus is reconsidering issues of the past and Mars is entering Aries/Taurus both are very stubborn and powerful planets. As the full moon in Pisces/Virgo will end a chapter for both, the new moon in Pisces/Aries will trigger Mercury retrograde to begin its passage backwards in time with the 2nd, or rather 1st, 2017 retrograde. Mercury retrograde is still impacting Earth planets in 2017 but more so, Fire planets.

Mercury retrograde will begin March 23, 2017 evening in Aries; it will station on April 9, 2017 in Taurus and begin to move forwards, not completing its cycle until almost May 23, 2017. The last day of March could present money matters which may consume people and possibly causing battles or confusion.

apr
Even though Venus is retrograding, it is entering the friendly and spiritual sign of Aquarius/Pisces. At the same time, the planet of expansion and dreaminess, Neptune, may make people spend more than they want to.

My dear Scorpio, listen On April 06, 2017! This is the last leg of your journey, from April 06 through June 21st and you must finish all karmic lessons and unfinished business now as Saturn is coming to an end. You have this time while Saturn is retrograde to think about everything but don’t act yet. Read more about what you have been going through since 2012 here.

On April 06 Mercury Retrograde stations in Taurus while the beautiful full moon in Aries/Libra lights the sky. Venus loves it where it is, as it is now direct, and now Capricorn is in deep thought again when Pluto is now remembering the way things were before. Plus for Taurus when the new moon blesses them. But I dont know how lucky it will be when four planets still retrograding. Mercury is now going back to Aries and Gemini is being given an opportunity to be strong, but they can’t talk. Once again Scorpio shakes and rattles; as I said, the grand finale is almost here. Understand though, that at the end of April, Saturn is bringing some difficulties to you. You may get tired, sick, or it may seem that life is bringing you down.

may
The burden of Mercury is slowly lifted on the 21st and 22nd of May. However, the truth of too much time off, for those that are suffering from Saturn transits, is in your face. The full moon in Scorpio will make sure one door definitely closes because something really has to give, dear Libra/Scorpio. The summer is almost here and it is pretty obvious by the first super new moon on May 25 in Gemini.

21725

Though this super moon will be nothing like the one we had in November of 2016, and hardly will be seen this will definitely be a new beginning for Gemini, and well deserved.

As I always have said, something ends and something new begins on a full moon especially on a super moon.

june
The shackles are now being released for many, just in time to enjoy the summer. Mars is entering Gemini/Cancer. While Gemini’s like power, Cancers don’t really care. Jupiter is shining bright with the help of Saturn; so both earth and fixed signs, or those that have Virgo/Scorpio and Libra in their chart, will be benefited.

21736

While Venus is glorified in Taurus, our first micro super full moon enters the skies on June 09 in Sagittarius and Virgos are doing the happy dance when Jupiter finally goes direct. However, Neptune is now direct and many people that have Neptune strong in their chart may seem confused. None of this will really matter to Cancers as they love to bask in the sun and talk.

On June 21, 2017, those suffering through Saturn transit will be so happy to now put into action the unfinished business which they have until October to complete. The Super New moon on June 23, 2017 will grace them to ensure this is done with all the blessings they deserve.

jul
There are many people who are also going through a Chiron transit; especially if they are baby boomers or reaching their 50’s. Chiron is now having those affected look back at the past in the first day of July by going retrograde.

21726

On July 09, 2017 the full moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn will grace us while Mars and the Sun make their aspects in Cancer/Leo. Just as we are getting comfortable in the summer, the irritable Mercury has to come and ruin it for many of us. He will come and knock on the door on July 21/22, 2017 in Leo. He will finish the month of July transit into the month of August bothering humanity the entire time.

Many of us will be itching if it is not the full moon then it is Chiron. If it is neither than it is mercury. If not it is all and the heat will be incredible. We might have to crank it up!

aug

As I said in February that it would be one of the most difficult months the worst month will be August.  Between the retrogrades, the eclipses, the heat and the hustle and bustles of the back to school and work schedule it may cause fatigue, restlessness and possibly some anger issues.

21729
Now that fall is here, Mercury is in motion and we are now looking at the past more intensely than ever. We are now also considering the way we spend and save money. But at what cost and what freedom?

The full moon in Leo/Aquarius, as well as the lunar eclipse in Aquarius, will test our freedom and see to it that anything that traps us must leave our lives on August 7, 2017. Due to the lunar calendar (VPN states it would be considered an eclipse in Capricorn/Cancer). I would love to know how Cancerians and Capricorn hold up during this time. I just hope that no one acts on any impulses during retrograde as Mercury Retrograde stations in Virgo on the 12th.

21712
Within 10 days the new moon in Leo, with the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, is the solution that family will find your freedom for you on August 21, 2017. While those suffering from Saturn backlash will be eased as Saturn is now direct.

The month of August and for the next 6 months the focus will be on the freedom, spirituality and the power of family.

sept
The leaves are now changing colors, the air is fluctuating, and it seems that days are still long because of retrograde. Virgo loves it when Mars is in their sign as they have the power. While the full moon brightens the streets for Virgo’s, Venus makes it all pretty and nice.

2179

Well, of course, Mercury decides that he will leave Virgos where he feels so comfortable and station direct in back into Leo where he first began his journey and wait.

This is because on September 14, 2017, Virgos have to hand over the Jupiter torch to their brother and sister Libras, as well as pass along the lessons they have learned. Let’s hope that Virgos have planted all the seeds, and did all they needed to do, because Jupiter may not be back for a long time (read about the gifts of Jupiter with Virgo). On the other hand, Capricorn is seeing things clearly now with Pluto direct and Halloween near.

oct
Smell of pumpkin spice is so close that it’s almost like autumn is already here. The full moon in Aries/Libra will smile bright for Aries in the beginning of the month. Meanwhile, Jupiter is shining bright for Libra (per VPA) and Libras love Mars as they will welcome Diwali for many Hindus and their special moon.

21721

On October 26, 2017, Libra/Scorpios finally sit down at the footsteps and look behind, to the sides, and in the front, waiting for a brick or the entire house to fall but there is no more falling down; no more slaps, at least until way past 2030. Your Saturn transit is finally over, yes it is read about the pain and the now there should be something left at your door in a few months (read about it here).

But remember Scorpio if you make the same mistakes it will burn and bleed worse than it ever did.

ss

As far as Sagittarius this is your turn, I really don’t feel Saturn has to be bad it is all in the attitude and as I always have said, I got married during my Saturn transit and look what you will learn (read about it here)

The only thing I suggest is to write a journal about the things you experienced and bury it somewhere. Hopefully someone will find it long after we are gone so that they can understand it was the most difficult journey of our lifetime.

nov
The full moon in Aries/Taurus will brighten the beginning of winter by bringing some light to gloomy days while Mercury prepares to come and haunt us again. Uranus is causing some confusion to early born Sagittarius’ who are now feeling some nudges of Saturn.

21735

Neptune is now direct so we are no longer feeling as if we are floating on water. However, Mercury retrograde is preparing for the journey through Gemini/Sagittarius on November 13/14, 2017 and continuing through the end of November.

Perhaps it will give us just enough time to slow down and enjoy some precious family time with loved ones and appreciate all that we have accomplished in 2017.

dec
Our last super full moon will place a bright light on the street and shadow our footsteps in the cold and misty weather on December 3 with the full moon in Gemini/Sagittarius. At the same time, stationing Mercury retrogrades in Sagittarius. Chiron is now direct which is telling us that we are getting old and facing a reality check of we have, and need, to do.

21737

On December 18, 2017 our last Micro super new moon will black out everything and the sky, as we know, will go void with the universe questioning us. Those questions will conclude and the answers will let you talk after you have worried about your future through Mercury stationing in Capricorn.

After you decide and understand you must love to work hard when Venus enters Capricorn on Christmas day. With the new economy, what will you do differently in 2018? What will you sacrifice? Love, money, prestige, power or something else?

Please note I am not an astrologer, rather a Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic and a Sanskrit Reader. My predictions are based not upon Vedic, or Western Astrology rather a Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Analysis which uses astrology as a place holder of moods and characteristics of actions a humanity.
If you are looking for a Western Astrologer, you may access them here.

If you are looking for a Vedic Astrologer, they are by appointment and they do not give telephone consult and it is done through Kundi only and usually takes 30 days. It is not recommended for relationship reading unless it has been decided two people are defiantly getting married. For further information please contact me privately.

As you may have noticed I am writing this during retrograde and I am sure I will revise this after January 08, 2017.

Next year will be like walking on wire but on a bridge with both poles and perfect cement. With disturbance on the phone while on a perfect connection, everyone will be affected. The world we know today will not be the world we will embrace in 2018.

Wishing you the best of 2018, look for my newsletter in your inbox and new blogs and information to come in 2017.
