Lionize, Liberate, Learn and Love: Last Lunar Eclipse in Leo beyond 2040

Total Lunar Eclipse

Super Blood Moon

Super Moon

Full Moon in Leo

Jan 20/21, 2019

By Maharani Rutan©

I am sure you recall the “Great Eclipse of the Century” in August of 2017. The universe is calling on us again with the “Total Lunar Eclipse” intertwined with the most beautiful Super Blood Moon.

It was called a Great Eclipse of the Century because of the visibility in the United States; we are here once again. This eclipse is making a grand entrance and majestic exit. Whatever changes will be works in progress until 2026.


The total lunar eclipse will be visible to the entire regions of the Americas, Europe, and Asia, including the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans. In VPAT(Vedic Philosophical Ayurveda Theories) philosophies, whenever one planet obscures light from another planet it has an adversarial effect. As the full moon is auspicious in VPAT philosophies, this is only auspicious when the sun and moon are naturally rising and naturally moving beyond the horizon. The eclipses not only cause disorder for the planetary deities who are there to protect us, but also have powerful negative effects on people.

As superstitious as it may sound, it has been proven that those who look upon the lunar or solar eclipse usually have bad luck. The viewer has negative effects on their lives for at least 6 months to a year. Therefore, most often you will not see Hindus out and about during the eclipse nor do they go out of their way to view it. If the Gods are tormented by the negative connotation, think about what happens to humans.


The old moon and the Thunder moon, as named in the northern and southern hemispheres, will not luminate until the eclipse begins. On January 20, 2019 the Penumbra Eclipse will motion over the moon at 9:36pm EST. As the moon becomes grand and rises as a super moon at 10pm EST we will not be able to view it as the partial solar eclipse will begin at 10:33pm EST.

Thus, a full eclipse will begin at 11:41pm EST, maximizing and bringing forth total darkness at 12:12am EST. For those who want to take a chance to view it, you will have about 31 minutes until the movement towards the partial eclipse at 1:50am EST then back to the beginning at 2:48am EST.


In my predictive blog of 2019, I stated that every instance of the full moons and the eclipses are replicas of exact degrees and astrological signs in the year 2000. On January 21, 2019 the impact of each eclipse is related to the planet it rules; in this case this is a Cancer (VPAT) / Leo (Western) axis. This also means that all those in the viewing area of the eclipse (all those listed above) will also be affected.

The eclipse on January 20/21, 2019, occurs in Leo or Cancer, ascendant, or anyone with Leo and Cancer in their chart, not excluding Fixed and Cardinal signs. Those included in this realm of the eclipse are almost everyone except for those that have Earth (Taurus, Capricorn or Virgo) prominent in their signs. A VPAT chart will give you the exact proximity of the impact, rather than estimating.


Leo is a sign of the home and Cancer is a sign of emotions and heart. Thus, we can all relate when things affect our homes. For example, we had a lunar eclipse last year at the end of January and we had a lunar eclipse at the same time in 2000. If we compare both 2000 and 2018, we can possibly get a glimpse of what is to come.

We do have to keep in mind that the eclipse energy can be felt as early as two weeks before the intensity on the day of, and two weeks after. But for some people this is a 6-month to a one-year process of transformation. Because the solar eclipse this year is two weeks before the eclipse, the safe side to predetermine the outcomes would be around the 11th of January 2000, and January 2018.


In January of 2000, the Algerian civil war and Islamic conflicts were in the news, whereas in 2018, Israel-Palestine struggles were making headlines; thus, we are seeing conflicts in religious areas. Leo also represents our foundation (religion, culture etc.). In September of 1999, Hurricane Floyd left disaster up and down the Eastern Seaboard and it took until almost January to even start rebuilding.

Fast forward to 2018 when, due heavy rain, the entire state of California was either on fire or under heavy rain in 2017 and it was not until late January until the cities began to rebuild. In relation to this eclipse, Leo also represents the home and community. Both incidents brought people together to build a collective community.


To be able to see the parallels of how eclipse effects the viewable region, we turn to the lunar eclipse of 2000 which was visible in Asia, Antarctica. Yunnan, China’s earthquake left 42 thousand homes flattened. Whereas the 2018 eclipse, which was viewed by the upper peninsula of North America, saw a 7.9 magnitude earthquake causing similar if not more damage than then one in 2000.

Here we are now, this eclipse is being viewed by most all South and North America. My prediction is that earthquakes, mudslides, fires and international conflicts are all possibilities within the next six months. Though many will look at these events as trauma (which is it is), the outcome is to bring society, neighbors, countries, and the collective “us” together as a family.


Additionally, people with fixed and cardinal signs will have complications unraveling their self-perception from their feelings, failing to recognize that someone or something is not what it appears. Thus, it is all a character defect or an illusion rather than an emotional commitment. These people will be fanatical about doing things that restrict their sensitive gratification or chasing after their hunger while flair and skills are wasted. It is at this point that a tug of war between emotions and motivations begins.

When a lunar eclipse occurs, the earth is transitory between the Sun and the Moon, creating a Full Moon as we experience every month – but in this case, the position is flawless – the occultation of the Moon complete. The intensity of the Full Moon is boundlessly and totally covered for about an hour by the earth’s shadow. The Sun and Moon are inhabiting opposite Astrological signs, therefore emphasizing the polarization characteristic to those signs.


During the period of occultation, the Moon’s supportive light is momentarily suspended. Experiencing a crisis of deficiency depends upon the astrological sign in which the eclipse transpires, and generally upon the natal astrological house (realm of influence), as well as the major aspects made to natal planets.

This eclipse is particularly relationship oriented, and our connections with others can be disconnected, tested, or abruptly repaired as the surprise calls one to action. We may extremely reflect on our spirits and needs within the situation of the house in one’s astrological chart. Sign and planetary facets may be pretentious. To fully grow the probable in the lunar eclipse, we must discover both houses and signs that are brought into play.


Where the Moon is positioned, we can provoke our demons, old behaviors and doubts, and where the Sun is we may find the means to hold and release from whatever oppression we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are prospects for unfathomable understanding and finding a balance in our lives.

The Moon in Leo marks a time of determination and charisma. Ruled by the Sun, Leo creates an inspiration of warmth, passion, and delight. People may feel inspired, honorable, and substantial. It is a good time to pursue romance, be social, and to help others. Like the Lion that symbolizes Leo, people may feel confident but also want gratitude and acknowledgement. Care needs to be taken to avoid exaggerated displays to grab the spotlight or leadership positions.


Cancer brings fostering, sentiments, compassion, thoughts, and romantic issues in our lives. The Watery and Fiery Cancer brings up memories of childhood, warm motherly arms, and tender touches for loved ones. Our hearts swirl in a sea of early metaphors…. watch out for crabbiness! Becoming sensitive expressively and the need to hide in your shell sometimes may be the mood for the next few months. But at the same time, you may find yourself a strong defender of family and tradition.

Although dispositions maybe become unsettled, people will come to you willingly for nurturing and care. Care needs to be taken to avoid hurting the feelings of others as well as having your own feelings hurt. Moon in Leo/Cancer is a beautiful synchronicity as Leo represents the family, or the father, and Cancer represents the mother. Furthermore, the moon in Leo also represents Sun and Cancer represents Moon.


Looking back at the Leo/Cancer eclipse, even though I am not neither sign and I have nothing in Leo and only one planet in Cancer, this was a very emotional time. The first Lunar Eclipse in February 2017, my father became ill early part of February and passed away 24th of February, my father passed away due to complications with his heart and kidneys. The following year couple of days before the eclipse in January 2018, my mother had a heart attack and in February 2018 couple of days after the eclipse, my mother had open heart surgery, but she was so strong that she pulled through. I tell you this to demonstrate that this is a time of Mother/Father and family. Leo (Father) is where the heart is, and Cancer(Mother) is where the emotional heart is.

With Moon in Leo, you may have an expressive need to shine and be praised by others, articulating feelings in a naïve manner, either spiritedly or theatrically. A normal kinship with children and a skill for organizing and leading are all possibilities. Especially present will be the nurturing others by generous admiration and bringing out boldness and fearlessness in others will come easy.


On the other hand, Leo’s have high respect for their mothers; they see their mother as a noble, studied, or respected person, and look for individuality, warmness, and fortitude in that relationship The Leo energy can sometimes cause more fanatical, tenacious, proud, annoyed, arrogant, narcissistic, or patronizing qualities. It’s tougher (but not impossible) to make fluctuations or be supple.

The lunar stimuli are tough and most eagerly voiced when energizing both signs. Consider that, as elements, Leo is a fire sign and Cancer is water sign. When mixing fire and water it will create steam. Thus, we need to be cognizant of this when in matters of behavior, perception, and frame of mind. The energy will generate anxious enthusiasm and unlimited attention towards people. At the same time, the steamy energy can be very unsettling for others, whereas moods, actions, and reactions could be wary, narrow-minded, emotional, and on the other spectrum, welcoming and nurturing.


Regrettably, if nurturing linking does not exist, there may compulsive behaviors which could lead to over doing things such as food, alcohol, spending, or other things that may not be good for one’s healthy emotions.

On the political front, there may be many issues concerning family structure, needs being met, and how to keep families together during tough times. Cities coming into focus could be Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York. On an international front, focus may be on North and South Korea, China, Russia, Rome Madrid, Sweden and Tokyo.


Any conflicts, chaos, or disasters which occur during this time may also have to do with the intense energy of several planets. Currently, Saturn is still in Sagittarius and is direct until end of April. Saturn is the deity of difficult lessons but is also a teacher where there is a gift bestowed upon those who take the initiative to make positive changes in their lives without dependence upon others. Saturn in Sagittarius will affect all fire signs by association, therefore, it will impact Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius.

Saturn also asks the questions if we mean what we say, if we practice what we learned, and are we honest inside as we expect honesty from others? Also, if anything in your life is causing you restriction, Saturn will make sure it leaves your life no matter how important it is. This means home, family, love, job, or places you live, etc. During this time Saturn is doing its thing by bringing out secrets and the illusions we place upon people.


On the flip side, Mars is in Aries until almost the end of April. Mars feels the most contented here. By association this will affect all fire signs (Leo, Aries, Sagittarius) and will help in being more confident, firm, hostile, gutsy, forceful, while everything that seems challenging, competitive, and difficult is no longer pain staking nerve racking and smoother sailing. All the lessons of Mars will be innate in you as if they came in an instant.

The lunar eclipse is a very deep transit. The triggers of the moon touch upon feelings and the sun highlights self-identity. Hence, our feelings will be overrun by our emotions as our feminine and masculine sides are triggered by the pressures of both planets on either side. This can lead to disappointment, anxieties, and bitterness. Often, we are not accepting the underlying causes of difficulties in our lives and are not ready to accept the truth.


Lunar eclipse also assists us with building new things in our lives; if it is not stable, it will break away. In this eclipse, the world at large may be focusing a lot on our civil liberties, sexual characteristics, fairness, natural life, philosophy, and evolution. It’s time to rip apart all the darkness and be at peace with yourself. Allow spirits and spirituality to guide you.

Additionally, all the shake ups and wanting to tear apart things has a lot to do with the Rahu and Ketu transit which affects us for another 60 days until it changes signs to Gemini/Sagittarius. For now, until March, if you are a Cancer or have Cancer in your second house or are a Capricorn or have Capricorn in your second house, you could see some unexpected career opportunities. Financial increases may also be seen in many aspects.


This, however, is not the only good news for you Leo’s and Cancers. What I am about to present to you is a predisposition of VPAT predictions of each sign. Since Leo and Cancer are highlighted in this eclipse, the main focus will be to look at both of these astrological signs from now until their birthday, June-August 2019.

Please note these predictions are not exact to a specific person or a situation; rather, they are general predispositions to every aspect. If you have properly signed up for my newsletter you may have received a form in which it highlights these aspects and I hope you are able to follow along.


Each planet which I am presenting is based upon VPAT predispositions of what will transpire as general predictors for Leo’s. To look at the whole picture it is advised to combine everything and get a larger picture. However, since no one person has as 12 planets in one sign, it is advisable to insert the predisposition wherever there is Leo in your VPAT chart.

I will list all the planets and end dates for specific transit. I will also list them in the order of my favorite to my least favorite (they are usually the toughest). Finally, I will not be mentioning any planets which are retrograde as it usually causes more confusion, instead, I will focus on the dates.

Leo

Consider this eclipse as the first day of your life. This is time to plant your seeds, as what you bring to the universe’s table will be those seeds which could blossom in six months to a year. But it is also a transit of sustainability. This is your last eclipse; it is your new beginning, but most of all, this is your journey to find yourself in the world that is so unique to you. For many Leo’s, and those that have Leo planets, this is not going to be an easy eclipse. Our wonderful planet Mars is having it out with crazy Uranus. During the eclipse this conflict could cause irrationality or brute reactions to things. There may be a lot of confusion. Forget collaboration or cooperation during this time, and a need for change may take off in a wacky manner. If you meet someone new, start a new romance, or even restart a romance between January 7 through January 31, it is considered dark energy. The best way to describe this is like drinking a 5-hour energy drink but after the 5 hours are up, you have no energy. In this case, the dark energy can cause so much damage that it could bring pain that may be difficult to mend together, sometimes taking until the next eclipse in Leo to do so, which won’t be until 2026. Then again, others may be irrational towards you or just remain quiet during this period. Furthermore, do not start any romance, mend an old romance, or fix old situations February 18 through April 18 and again June 18 through August 18, 2019. These dates represent time in which Mercury retrograde could cause confusion (read about other transits in my predictive blog here).

Saturn: April 2019-Sept 2019. Saturn is in Sagittarius and, by association, you too are affected by the difficult lessons. But this time you are ready for anything and trust me when I say this is your gift. My caution to you is not to spend unnecessarily. This is the time to expand on your career life, education, travel, friends, and family. Lady luck is blessing you with flourished material and professional growth so do not let this slip away.

Ketu – Since Ketu is changing signs as of March, there are two instances; one is from now until March, and it changes directions at the end of March. You will have good health, an ability to pay back debt, and you will feel very content.

Ketu: March 30, 2019. There could be some financial challenges for you and minor conflicts in relationships. You may not be able to focus on your studies as much as you want and will need to take care of your health.

Rahu there is a change of sign in March, therefore this prediction reflects everything until March 30, 2019. Your financial structure should be getting better, including the way you approach life. This will assist you in moving forward in areas of career and financial gains.

Rahu: March 30, 2019. Nothing in the transit of sign change is changing except that you will have an unexpected career opportunity. Financially, and with respect to your career, things are looking great. However, your focus and ability to follow direction due to miscommunication is possibly hindered.

Uranus: Aug 2019. For most people dear Leo, this would be a horrible transit. But you can take the craziness as you are a natural born leader. This is a time for travel, education, diversity, and finding your higher self. If opportunity of growth and expansion, both externally and externally occurs, make sure you take advantage of it.

Jupiter – There will also be a change of signs at the end of March. Therefore, two instances of this will show as opposite or very similar. There could be possible conflicts with people you care for which could cause health issues or minor sickness due to stressors. You may also have unnecessary worries for your mother or mother figure.

Jupiter: March 30, 2019. Financial gains, network expansion, involvement in spiritual and philanthropic events are the theme. Material and spiritual gains which lead to expansion in career and a new home, car, or major purchase, are possible.

Prediction, Warnings and afterthoughts by Maharani For Leo’s

 Be careful of minor health issues, do not take anything lightly. This year the problems that seem so difficult will be overcome. A career move is very much possible and financial gains are unsurpassed. But, be careful of unexpected expenses in May. If you are looking for love, it seems the period between May and the middle of June is your best time; just be yourself, compromise, love, impress, and use your charm. Exercise and healthy eating habits will put you on top of your health. You see already your seeds are being planted without even asking. Welcome to your last lunar eclipse, enjoy it.


Every year, we usually have four eclipses and they always come in pairs. This is the universe’s way of pushing us to let go of unwanted garbage and they are usually charged by the energy of any full moon. These times are often about changes in your life; letting go and learning not to smother. This is something Cancers know best. They don’t like to be smothered nor do they smother, and this eclipse is all about the emotions.

What I will present to you is a general predisposition to the sign of Cancer, not necessarily individual circumstance. I will also present the planets in order, from those I least favor to the most favored. Some of the planets will be changing signs before your birthday, therefore, you may see two instances of the same planets with a different date.

Cancer

Sweet Cancer, this is also your time. Think back to the rough years of 20092011. Remember the worries, uncertainties, and restrictions in your life. Now look at you today. Since 2009 you may have ended relationships, moved away, or are in a new career or profession. Something you could have never imagined in 2009. Also, if 2009 was not bad, go back to 2003-2005 as I am sure that was the toughest time for you. For the past two years you have been discovering yourself and paying back tough Karma; finding your own dignity in life through growth and success. At the same time, you are being given an opportunity to see how stressors can cause problems to our health and focus. You may also discover that not telling the truth, or twisting it, has its consequences. This is especially true when you cannot lie very well and additional stressors cause problems.

Saturn: April 2019-Sept 2019. Saturn is in Sagittarius and moving back and forth. Fire and water do not mix well but sometimes they can if they are meant to diffuse. Saturn is a teacher and a karmic guru. Once the lessons are learned there is always a gift at the doorway and how it should be seen. This is because it’s not the best time for your right now, because your temper will rise. Do whatever that is necessary to control engaging in conflicts and stay focused on the work at hand. This year you may be traveling more than other years but it also comes with agitation. The more you involve yourself in situational conflicts, the more you will become physically ill; the illness could be as minor as a cold or something even greater. This is because you wear your emotions on your sleeve. Instead, spend quality time with your friends, and plenty of time with your siblings. Most of all, if you can feed birds nearby that will help you ease the tension. This is not a year for personal relationships.

Ketu – Since Ketu is changing signs as of March, there are two instances; one is from now until March, and then it changes directions at the end of March. Your focus this year may be on your life partner or someone significantly important to you. Time will be spent taking care of them, but while you do so it may be that your work life or profession that will decline, thus causing tension. This can lead to tiffs which would be detrimental to peace between the both of you. Avoid confrontations with people you care for and remember that your career and professional prospects are plenty.

Ketu: March 30, 2019. Avoidable anxiety, sickness, and doubts could cause aggression through the year for you. Competition, obstacles, and working diligently for success is the theme for 2019. Hence, the harder you work the less you are taking care of your health. Exercise, eating healthy, and seeing your physician is an important factor during this transit. You must be very mindful with your spending as you may accumulate things that are not necessary and place yourself into even deeper financial difficulties. Be kind and humble during communication, especially with a pure heart, otherwise conflicts could lead to stressors that will cause a decline with your health.

Rahu – there is a change of sign in March, therefore, this prediction reflects everything until March 30, 2019. Be mindful towards your movements and responses while in public. Remember not to be too sensitive; it is not how someone is saying something, it is what they are saying. The problem is that you may become defensive towards people.

Rahu: March 30, 2019. This year, you need to watch your spending and indulging on unnecessary things. The more you travel, the more pressure it will create on your closest relationship. Be careful not to do things that are covert or illegal. There are chances of trials, miscommunication, and sluggishness with project completion.

Uranus: Aug 2019. There will be positives and negatives while Uranus flips between Taurus and Aries. There is a possibility of career change, professional promotions, and vindication. Dissatisfaction with your profession may cause a new learning methodology to better prepare you. Trust your decisions, even if they seem risky. It will work out at the end, as it always does for you.

Jupiter – there will also be a change of signs at the end of March, therefore, two instances of this will show as opposite or very similar. This is one of those moments of contentment, slackening, amusement, creativity, spending time with children/grandchildren or other people’s children, indulging, and the arts.

Jupiter: March 30, 2019. Be very careful this year with your health and take extra caution while doing anything risky which could cause you physical injury. Slow down while driving as well. You may find you are physically and mentally lethargic, therefore, I suggest that you take time out for yourself. Be careful not to pass judgement or show hostility. The best way to handle these situations is to practice collaboration and communication which is respectful. Your dream job will be around the corner if you polish up your educational skills.

Prediction, Warnings and afterthoughts by Maharani For Cancers

Now it’s time to sip your fancy drinks, but be careful, you know you love the finer things in life and this will be a year of things full of activities and memories. You will have plenty of drama of your own as you will have internal conflicts around moving from one place to another or transitioning to a new career. Be careful with minor conflicts with family members in the spring. Try not to dive into negative thinking. Be helpful to those at the workplace as the more cooperative and a team player you are, the more you will be recognized. You will get to a point where you build a home life which is peaceful and serene. It’s time to say what you want to say and show, and tell, people you love that you love them. Relax and be close to home and relax as this is what you use to regenerate. The problem is with your love of food, so it is very important that you maintain a healthy regimen. I think there should be a party for you and Leos while you are basking in the sun and the rest of us watch you and sulk.


The Super Moon is the closest ‘Planet’ to Earth, and this satellite literally zips around the Zodiac, completing its circuit in less than a month. It also touches us more deeply than most planets. I strongly suggest taking the goals that you made last month and crossing them out one by one. Remember, begging for your aspirations does not result in a positive effect.

During the Lunar Eclipse we must try to look at life from a different aspect. You might want to re-write the objectives like this: “I need help in generating what I dream of and the power to manifest happiness through this process. I need the information to love more and the ability to engross in a positive environment. I need to understand my goals.”


I also recommend that during this Moon cycle you purchase a white and yellow scented candle, either lemon/orange for the yellow and vanilla or orchid scent for the white, carve your name on it and anoint the candle with rose or lavender oil. Chant, in silence, Psalm 40 three times and Psalm 51 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.

Since, moon in Leo is Frisky, Courageous, Studied, Supervisory, and Systematized AND TEMPERAMENTAL, it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced.


You may also elect to narrate a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all requests of psalms and mantras, achieving the desired result is dependent upon the eminence of purpose.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantras for the lunar eclipse are:


Easy

Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya

(oom Naamooo Bha ga vate Vistu veya )

Difficult

Om tryambakam yajāmahe sugandhim puṣṭivardhanam

urvārukamiva bandhanān mṛtyor mukṣīya mā’mṛtā


This Siddha mantra uses the universal elements that govern each charka: Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. The intention of this mantra is the to keep us in balance and from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy.

Please note I am not an astrologer, nor pretend to be one. These are VPAT tendencies which are predispositions created by theory-based practices. To get your personalized horoscope, become familiarized with the type of astrology which makes you the most comfortable and seek an expert in that area.


It is highly recommended not to eat during the eclipse and 24 hour before the eclipse to eat only vegetarian food and stay away from fried foods. Additionally, spiritual bath during the eclipse is highly recommended and avoid watching the eclipse as it could bring forth hardship. You may watch it on television but not with the naked eye or even with glasses. There is an old saying if you watch the eclipse things could negatively happen within 3 to 6 months at the earliest and it could last for many years.

For those who follow my newsletter, note you are recommended to take a spiritual bath and then re-read the information that I provided. I will be offering 6-month readings from January 22 – Feb 2, 2019 on individual future, or 3-month readings on a relationship.


Since it is the last eclipse in Leo until 2026 and last lunar eclipse in Leo well beyond 2040, if you have Leo anywhere in your chart, I recommend that predictive reading is a option for you. My schedule for the eclipse is already posted (here), please check the price and what your reading will entail prior to contacting me for your appointment.  This will save both of us time and energy.

I hope you have the most spiritual and holistic eclipse possible.

Namaste,

Maharani

Involuntary Passage: Magenta Lunar Eclipse January 2018

Total Lunar Eclipse

Super Blue Full moon

Super Red Full moon

Super Full Moon in Leo

January 31, 2018

 

By Maharani Rutan©

Many of our lives are contingent upon the lessons of the past. Our characters are built upon our mistakes as well as our achievements. Once again, we are reminded that almost all of history must repeat itself to ensure that we have learned what we needed to learn to move to the next phase.

In only the first month of 2018 we have cried, mourned, been devastated, and fought for equality. We have watched leaders make fools of themselves while we scratched our heads with the question of “why.” Now, by the end of the month we question the very essence of family structure and what we call security; but most of all, we question how the lessons of the past affect us. These answers will not come to us overnight, rather, they may take several months to reveal themselves. I believe they will gradually come to us so that we can make sense of it all.

Some of the most positive aspects of January 2018, have been the beautiful Super full moon in Cancer and Micro New moon in Capricorn. Perhaps, planetary, our perception and emotions may have been tugged but the sky was beautiful to see.

January 31, 2018, will be one of those rare moments when the full moon will be described as a blue moon, one of only two that we will have in 2018. The phrase was coined by astronomers as “once in a blue moon”, meaning that only once in a blue moon do two full moons happen in a calendar month. But the rarity is that the second blue moon will be in the spring, and once again the past will repeat itself in 2037 when there will be exactly two blue moons in a year to repeat – January and March.


What I like about this moon is that this is the first time in a long time it is not only s blue moon, but it is also a red moon and a super moon. What a grand scale! We just passed our first super moon on January 23, 2018, and we are glorified again. We must enjoy this scenery as this type of aspect will not occur for at least 12 years, with the last occurrence being well over 130 years ago.

Scientifically, the total lunar eclipse occurs when three planets, the sun, moon, and earth form a straight line. Thus, any sunlight that is caste upon the earth is impassable to the moon. Because the density of Sun is much larger than the earth, the sun’s ray casts Earth’s shadow on the moon and it covers the moon entirely; often giving it a red luminosity.

Another uniqueness of this moon is that there will be NO FULL Moons in February. Therefore, some have adopted the January 31, 2018 Super Red-Blood moon to be renamed the “Snow Moon” as it is anticipated those in the northern hemisphere will have a very cold and possibly snowy February. Equally, in the southern hemisphere it is named correctly as the Red moon. This seems simple enough; blue representing the snow and cool weather, and red representing the light, enough for barley to grow. But its something even more special about this moon, which is also the day of our first eclipse in 2018.

The total lunar eclipse on January 31, 2018, will be visible in North America, the Pacific Ocean, Asia, and Australia. Its duration will be 1 hour and 16 minutes as it completes its cycle. The shadow of the sun will begin to cover the earth through the Penumbral Eclipse on the 31st at 5:51am EST and 10:51 UTC which can be seen by the eastern coast lines of the U.S and Canada. While the moon becomes full it begins its alignment with the Earth through its Partial Eclipse at 6:48am EST and 11:48 UTC. Though the total eclipse will not be seen by the North America’s, it will begin as the moon becomes fuller at 7:51am EST and 12:51 UTC. The moon will be completely full due to the super moon effect at 8:28am EST, 5:28 PST and 13:29 UTC; it will also be the maximum eclipse. The full eclipse will end at 9:07 EST and 14:07 UTC, thus within a half-hour or so, the magnificent cosmos show will wind down. The partial eclipse will end at 10:11 am EST and 15:11 UTC and will go back to original form at 11;08 PST and 16:08 UTC. This entire process could make it seem that the moon is red; however, it will depend upon the orbit’s degree.


Now that we have discussed the scientific gravitational degrees of the eclipse, it is time to analyze how this scenario relates to our past. I can say with certainty that this eclipse is at the exact degree, and sign, as the eclipse on January 31, 1991. Like the saying goes “Back to the Future”. As much as I would like to concentrate on other countries and pop cultures, I believe that more drama has been going on in some very specific nations i.e., U.S, Russia, and Korea, than any other countries, therefore, my top focus is going to be on these countries. It’s imperative that before the discussion of history is evaluated, the polarity is imperative to bring a connection between the past and the present.

In January 1991, the first African American woman was elected as Mayor of Washington D.C. (Sharon Pratt Dixon), and in January 2018 the first transgender person is seated in the Virginia House of Delegates (Danica Roem). January 1991 sees air strikes in Iraq, while in January 2018 air strikes continue in Somalia. January 2011, Eastern Airlines files bankruptcy but continues to operate for two more years, and in January 2018, Toys-R-US & Sears file for bankruptcy – could they operate for two more years? January 2011, President Bush appoints staff who retire or resigns, and in January 2018 President Trump appoints staff that resigns or are fired. Jan 7, 1991, Saddam Hussein prepares his military to wage a war against the U.S, and in January 2018, North Korea’s Kim John Un prepares to wage a war against the U.S. January 1991, Hurricane Hugo is linked to 61 deaths, while January 2018, mudslides and snow storms are linked to 60 deaths. There are many more polarities but the question is, what are we to learn from these coincidences? The answers are not available to us right away, rather, we must wait until the eclipses through Aquarius/Leo axis is complete.

The journey of the Leo eclipse will not end, at least until January 2019. What we will learn will be the things that are most intimate for us; which is the structure of society, leadership, security, and protection.

The first question of our structure was answered when our eyes were forced opened by the Lunar eclipse in February 10, 2017. “The only way this can happen is to alter separate ego centrism from ‘I’ thinkers to ‘We’ the people”. The first lunar eclipse of 2018 will do just that; opening our eyes while we hear the “Lions roar.”

The second question of leadership was answered in the past six months as we questioned the leadership during the fall eclipse on August 21, 2017 and on wards. “This could cause many leaders to take things out of context, being overly melodramatic or defensive, and could even have shortage of self-control and ethical reliability.” Read more here

The third question is one of security, which can be in the form of employment, taxes, finances, or anything to do with security of living and well being. All these answers will be provided for us in the next six months. We will be made to either rethink our budget or rethink what we need to do to secure ourselves.

As a VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory) reader, I must observe and respect the Vedic rituals such as Chandra Grahan (literal meaning: stealing of the moon aka lunar eclipse). This eclipse is very unusual certain rituals must be done before sundown and after. To simply put it, if the eclipse is visible in your city you should observe ultimate sacrifice (half fast day) if not, then you may not have to. However, to be on the safe side it should be observed as weather conditions do not account for the visibility. Furthermore, not only is this eclipse going to be politically driven, but it will also be relationship oriented as the full moon always brings endings and new beginnings.
Because this is a super full moon eclipse I suspect the effects of this eclipse will be felt as early as the 21st of January and will continue outwards until the eclipse in August 2018. However, keep in mind that the predisposition of eclipses is based upon VPAT which states that the Lunar eclipse is in Cancer, not Leo. Additionally, Rahu and Ketu are in Capricorn and Cancer, which means these people are going to have a difficult time sleeping or are going to be unable to sleep during the times given above.

Lunar eclipses have always been known as an omen. As Chandra (moon) is related to family and personal dilemmas which causes social and psychological intensity. Mostly, the intensity is related to issues which were brought up or related to December 2010 eclipses.


I will not be surprised at all if the difficulties of world leaders continue to intensify, or if the weather patterns cause crops to be unavailable or enter the market at a high cost. Additionally, there may be issues of terrorism, depression, and unstable economy for those that reside within the viewing are of the eclipse (North Americas, Asia and Australia). But I hope that my visions are proven incorrect when world issues surround nuclear or chemical weapons that effect our environment. Hence, it could be the opposite when all are halted.

On a personal level, for 7 days before the day of the eclipse and 7 days after, no major decisions should be made that would change one’s life. These decisions could pertain to marriage, jobs, moving, or even traveling for business. There could be a very strange outcome or some shocking endings.

The end of January will bring roller coaster rides for many and continue through February. A couple of days before the eclipse, Mars will enter Sagittarius and with Saturn in Sagittarius (per VPAT) will cause many people to experience “Fight or Flight” feelings. Many will seem angry and in order not to say anything they don’t mean, they may run away. Furthermore, projects may not be completed, and if it is not smoothing they may not be completed at all.

In the Vedic Philosophies, anyplace the eclipse is observable will be affected the most. The lunar eclipse will have a long-lasting 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 in the blog.


This is also a time that Aquarius/Leo’s are discovering themselves; finding out who they are, and how they are in harmony with their relationships. Both Aquarius’ and Leo’s are often concerned about what others think; it is about looking privately and standing out for who they are. Unique creativeness are idyllic to bring modesty and effort, independently of others.

The full moon, or lunar eclipse, is always about discarding the old to make room for the new. Yet, in the Vedic Philosophies it is recommended that people recognize, and are cautioned to exercise, the same formalities as counseled during retrograde, but with even more discipline during the eclipse.


There is a profound anxiety for sensitive situations and wishes 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 provoke our demons, old behaviors, and uncertainties, and where the Sun is we may find the means to hold and issue from whatever oppression. We can now have understanding in life through our inspired efforts. In any event, there are prospects for deeper empathetic understanding, and finding a balance in our lives.

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.

Often full moons, especially attached to the eclipse, are compared to chapters in a book; the conception of forming new chapters in our lives is like a chapter in a book. Every full moon we produce a thesis which means we propose a change rationally that we need to alter because of conditions which are no longer working. Whether it is our appearance or dealing with problems in our own lives, the transformation is imminent because old ways are not working.

As the moon begins to move from bright to dim, and creates a metamorphism to a New moon, we create antithesis. The prevailing energy of the new moon (which was a couple of weeks ago) gave the beginning of simplicity in what needs to change; our thesis (awareness or a change), is it likely or is it a nullification which causes a response, and we begin to plant the seeds.

When the moon orbits to nurture itself into waxing moon we triumph to resolve struggles between thesis (ideas or a modification) and antithesis (what we need to do to make it happen or what won’t work) and this synthesis will permit the truth to form new ideas while undertaking issues that do not work in our lives. In easier terms, we could end a chapter in our lives or even began a new one. But changes will be the climax.

A Lunar Eclipse is painstaking by its effect on zealous reactions. Psychic sensitivity and spiritual tendencies during a lunar eclipse occur because of the lunar energies. So, take this energy and put it toward constructive activities such as writing in your journal and acceptance of your feelings on paper. Remember things that happen within the 3-week period during and after the eclipse usually have long lifelong effect. If the eclipse happens on your sun it will have a great influence on your life, but if there is a clash it may be problematic for 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 vigor can frequently cause us to be more biased, tenacious, content, annoyed, conceited, vain, and superior. It’s harder (but not unbearable) to make changes or be supple, since the Moon is the closest ‘Planet’ to Earth. It also hits us more deeply than most Planets.
The material which I am about to present is not grounded upon western or eastern astrology rather; it is based upon a Vedic philosophy. This philosophy arises from its roots as placeholders which use the method 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 VPAT and not to be confused for astrology. Those that have had a chance to talk to me may have had their VPAT chart done and I recommend that you now take this material and use your columns to foretell your six-month outcome.

Principal placeholders that will be pretentious 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)

This is the 4th of Aquarius’ series of eclipses; the first was Aquarius/Virgo axis in August of 2016 which was focused around work (read more about it here). The 2nd Series in Pisces/Leo Eclipse changed how we looked at life. In the fall of 2017, the journey continued as both Aquarius Eclipse and Leo Eclipse changed their perception of life. This continual transformation will affect fixed signs until 2019 even when Aquarius leaves in the fall. However, Saturn in moved into Sagittarius (read about it here) until 2020. This means it will affect all fire signs including Leo. While all fixed signs will be affected by this eclipse as it is in their sister house.

Leo: This is the second of the series of eclipses for you, Dear Leo, until January 2019. You will now ask questions as 5 W’s one H. Who do you want to be like or who are you? What do you want to do in the future? Where do you want to work and live? When do you want to do it? The last question is how will you do this. The first step will be to examine yourself, your health, personality, and your visions of life. As you make ground breaking changes necessary to make these changes. But remember, Saturn in Sagittarius (per VPAT) will continue to transform you until 2020, in a way you have never experienced before.

Aquarius: Even though this eclipse is not in your sign this is an Aquarius/Leo axis which means you will be affected unlike the last eclipse which reformed you. This eclipse will force you to reconsider every relationship in your life, i.e. business, personal, and family. It will be a time looking at everything from desires to commitment as well as happiness, success and vision. Also remember Jupiter in Libra (per VPAT) will bring things you treasure and things that no longer serve a purpose will leave. Since VPAT does not focus much on the sun signs; rather, it has a moon focus, expect the unexpected good or bad, this is your eclipse too.

Scorpio: This eclipse is more karmic than you ever would have thought. You will now be concentrating on your career, goals, occupation and all things that make you the person you are. It will go profoundly into the origins of your accomplishments, influence, standing, social status, financial strength, recognition, esteem, and the position you are longing. It is about your face and how you will increase your goals in the bigger picture.

Taurus: Consideration of physical value is going to take much of your energy. However, it is a time to be able to balance your personal life and things that are meaningful to you. You may consider the focus of things that you own such as your home, vehicle, jewelry, and family values. Hence, it is time to look at your work and personal life, how you will maintain peace and harmony, and how you can have the best of both worlds while bringing yourself happiness. However, with Uranus in your sign now you must do what you can to save for a rainy day.

Cardinal Signs

(Aries, Capricorn, Libra, and Cancer)

This eclipse is making some significant changes to Cardinal signs. As we are now moving away from Uranus in Aries. Some Aries’ should feel good as nothing will be that shocking. However, Saturn in Sagittarius will continue to impact your work and friends, Dear Aries. If you have not paid your debt to someone, or something, you will pay Karma as Saturn governs your Karma. However, nothing will compare to the depths of Rahu and Katu transits in Capricorn/Cancer which will impact after life and a reconsidering of the present. Soon, Cancers will be going through their own transformations. A Little hint is the 2009 eclipses. Additionally, with Jupiter in Libra (according to VPAT) Libra’s will now go through their own wonderful transformation in areas of money, home, relationships somewhat a euphoria effect.

Aries: You should be feeling a lot better. Now is the time to revive and reflect on how you differentiate, justify, and examine everything in your life. It may be time to go back to school or do a spiritual vocation. As you do so you will have blessing and affluence. But the problem is you wager on your reserves too much. Whatever makes you feel good and whatever makes you feel bad will be the focus of the eclipse.

Libra: As you continue to enjoy the gifts of Jupiter, remember to watch your weight and indulgences as they could cost you plenty in the long run. This eclipse is about wonderful surprises for you. Unexpected money, happiness, and prosperity is coming to you. It does not mean go and win the lotto (well that could happen but I did not say so) it’s about inheritance, and profitable gain. You could be more social than ever before and you will have supporters that will assist you in every way.

Cancer: You have been riding high for quite some time now. The time is almost near for your own eclipses this summer. Hence Rahu/Ketu transit is making you look at life in a deeper sense. Consider whom you leave things behind for. Whom have you hurt that you need to mend with and what Karma will you take with you? It’s time to consider your family and how you are maturing. You will have a double-edged sword here. Not that it must be bad at all but it is about your family, relatives, moods, reactions, and how you relate to them. Your thinking and focus needs to be on budgeting debts and profits, and how you manage them. Remember that according to VPAT this is your eclipse even though Leo’s are focused. Something will definitely end.

Capricorn: Having Rahu/Ketu and Pluto in your sign is not always easy, you may have your high highs and low lows and it can cause depression or even anxieties. This is your transformation. If you have not taken care of your health you will be shown your weaknesses. Things will happen out of the blue and you could have enormous losses or gains. You may anticipate family money, or insurance which could be taken away or given to you. Even with any negativity, your psychic antennas are beaming and your intuition is strong, so use to your purpose.

Mutable Signs

(Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Gemini)

With Saturn in Sagittarius, by association all mutable signs should be feeling the effects of Saturn. It could be dissatisfaction at work, long hours, fatigue, or unfulfilled expectations. Fortunately, at the end of the tunnel (2020) you will no longer let minor things change your moods or perception. With Uranus moving into Taurus, it could be that Virgos may feel things happen suddenly or unexpectedly. While Gemini is getting rubbed by Jupiter in Libra, they may be turned between having fun and working. Lastly, Pisces is still trying to dust their shirts from their eclipse last spring and continue their journey to change.

Sagittarius: Saturn can be quite difficult but also leaves a present at the door. Saturn is debt paying transit so be careful what you do and say as it will be a difficult transit if you don’t. On top of the disturbance of karma teacher this eclipse is also sitting in your dharma home. This can be a good period. You may go through a period when you don’t know where you are going but you will discover things which no one has ever known. It’s time to go back to school, go to a spiritual retreat, or do charitable work; the more you do the more you will be rewarded.

Virgo: As your transit of luck and financial uncertainties have moved past you, the universe tests you to see how you can handle things that are the unexpected. When Uranus goes into Taurus, your hard work and money will have unexpected shocks, both good and bad, so be prepared for the unknown. This eclipse is about endings. It will focus on impartiality, isolation, seclusion, depression, and dependencies. It is about letting go of things that no longer serve a purpose and cause negative thinking in your life. It is time for you to remove yourself from anything that is tangible and bring humility and freedom into your life.

Gemini: I guess it can be said that you may be on a win-win situation for a minute or two. With Jupiter in air signs you will find it benefits you. This eclipse takes place in a house which you are an expert at: communication, learning, and investigation. It is how you share your information with people and how you build rapport. However, it is not just about information, but also how you apply what you know with people. It is about media and every person in your life. Additionally, since you love to travel, this will be about travels also.

Pisces: You have now completed one phase of your transformation. Remember, every year after an eclipse you become more mature. But this means owning up to your mistakes and the lessons you have learned during your occupation. Now it is time to reconsider how you handle conflicts, adversaries, and how they affect your health. You will now have to dig deep to confront your fearful demons, and how you attend to others.


What I have offered are universal predispositions based upon VPA. Everyone’s characteristics will be diverse, contingent upon the individual VPA chart. This is not astrology and I strongly recommend 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, contact me privately as I can point you in the direction which is most beneficial to you.

Moon in Leo could cause a subtle need to sparkle and be well-regarded by others. You may express your feelings in a naïve manner – either vivaciously or dramatically. A natural magnetism with children, influence, and leadership comes naturally. Nurturing through respect while reassuring them to be strong, bold, and spirited will also come naturally. You view your mother as a royal, powerful, or a valued person; and look for autonomy, friendliness, and power in that relationship.


Through the Lunar Eclipse, it is vital to analyze situations in a changed facet. It is time to re-write your aspiration: “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 Spirited, Brave, Studied, Administrative, Planned, 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 intone these words every night until the next moon cycle and let the glory of the higher power enter your body, mind and soul.


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.

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.


For this eclipse, as well as the full and new moons, I have incorporated 4 mantras, each one more difficult than the other and more powerful. Do what you can to use proper enunciation as it is the most powerful method of help.

Additionally, to calm the effects of the lunar eclipse, I have incorporated a lunar eclipse mantra. This I suggest reciting now until Feb 15, 2018 and during the midnight hours of the full moon. The Leo moon mantras are:

Easy Mantra

Om Hreeng Shreeng Sauh

Om (Breathe in) Hriing (out) Shriing (in) Suuuuah (breathe all the way out)

Difficult

Om Kleem Brahmne Jagadadharaya Namah

Complicated

This Siddha mantra uses the collective essentials that manage each charka: Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. The purpose of this mantra is the to keep us in balance and from becoming irritated through darkness and unfocused energy. This mantra will support an easygoing and pleasant transition to new and positive energy states.

Please Note: I do not claim to be a Western or a Vedic Astrologer nor have the credits or academia to be titled as such. I am a Certified Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Reader. My philosophical explanations are based upon Science, Nature, Karma, Astrology, Numerology, Dharma, Ayurvedic, Philosophies, Universal, and many other ideologies to bring collected explanations of possible channels rather than absolutes.

I have already started accepting appointments for those who have Leo in their 1st, 7th, and 10th house for February 1 and 2. If you wish to have a reading please remember that I am only offering 6 months reading for 6 days for this eclipse.

Wishing you the most blessed eclipse. This transit will be powerful and last for 6 months; beginning as early as 7 days before and after.

Heaven’s door has opened. In reverse: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Total Solar Eclipse

New Moon in Leo

Black Moon

August 21, 2017

By Maharani Rutan©

The gates of the past and present are now open as our energy enters the door into the abyss, but all that we can see is darkness. Wherever there was once sunlight is now darkness. Nevertheless, the energy is so powerful and yet so sublime that it brings chills and subtle calmness in the air. The sky will be in total darkness over 15 to 16 states in the U.S. and the black moon, and the total solar eclipse, will bring spectators from all regions.

On August 21, 2017, similar to August 22, 1998, the total solar eclipse will begin its motion where the sun and the moon will be in be aligned so that the moon will cover the sun for a few minutes. The brilliance will begin at 12:05 EST and 9:05am PST. The first U.S. State to be able to view this will be Oregon. As the eclipse moves east, the greater the totally; taking a maximum of 90 minutes for the journey across the country. By the time the eclipse reaches the Southeast near South Carolina, the moon will begin to turn totally black moving into 28 degrees in Leo by 2:31 EST and 11:30am PST. By this time the maximum eclipse will occur; the total eclipse will begin and end near the Carolina’s at 2:48pm.


Unlike other writings, blogs, and articles, I will not go into details of how total solar eclipses are formed. Nor will I elaborate on how full moons are formed; however, I feel compelled to focus more on the timing of the eclipse and as well as the moon placement, as this will impact the transformational journey into the changes that are about occur for all visible cities as you will read later in this blog.

It is imperative that we all understand the VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory) prospective on the importance of this eclipse and how it will impact the characters of each and every person and their environment. I am certain there are plenty of articles of how marvelous and how dramatic this eclipse is in Western and Vedic Astrology, NASA sites, and other sites throughout the web. Therefore, the information which I bring to you will be more of a mundane philosophical prospective of historical phenomenon in the past and present, and how we will re-create the future as I had stated in my predictive blog in December 2016.


All eyes from those in the United States and many others have long waited for this event; some call it the Great Eclipse of the Century. This may be due to the pure perfection of the Total Solar Eclipse which hasn’t occurred in almost 30+ years in the North America, and the fact that the entire eclipse will be visible. But Mother Nature and the Divine are not done dancing with us as they bring to us the second spectacular event – a Black Moon.

A black moon occurs when there are two new moons in one calendar month. If you recall on July 21, 2017 I wrote in my blog, welcome the first Leo new moon and the second is yet to come (read about it here). Another black moon will not occur until next year.


One by one each astrological characteristic will be going through a metamorphosis which will be so profound that by the time the next eclipse in spring of 2018 arrives we will not be the same people. Aquarius will end their eclipse cycle in February, Leo in August. And here we go again, Capricorn/Cancer series will begin as it did in 2009. In one month, Virgo will give the torch of Jupiter to Libra, and in two months Scorpio will break each and every shackle of Saturn, destroy it, put it back together, and give it to Sagittarius for their lessons in karma.

Just as the Lunar Eclipse on August 7/8, 2017 is a recreation of past events, strangely, this eclipse is itself unique. The total solar eclipse is at 28 degrees in Leo on the 21st of August and is exactly the same degree as it was in 1998. Basically, this means that it will touch on events of 1998. Additionally, it also touches on events from August, 2009. However, the universe is not done with Leo at this degree as the questioning will remain open for discussion until 2028.


Ancient Vedic text, as well as VPAT, has always considered that any areas where the eclipse can be visible are the areas which will be impacted the most. Therefore, not only is the eclipse individually based, but it is also country and regional based. For example, during the Lunar Eclipse, I have predicted that there would be plenty of water issues, i.e. rain, flooding, snow, tornadoes, and other things that involve water in the United States or the northern regions for the next six months.

Since the Lunar eclipse can only be viewed by Europe and certain parts of Asia, my predictions are that it would not be surprising to me if there is news about new illnesses, shortages in food due to crop damage, or there even could be issues of wind and strange weather patterns. I additionally stated in my blog, of the lunar eclipse in Leo in the spring, “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” (Read more here), and at that time the eclipse could be seen in Asia and America.


The Total Solar eclipse will be seen by almost all of the United States and the same theory applies. Every eclipse is a 6 to12-month transit; sometimes lasting as long as 18 months. This is especially true when eclipses are in fixed sign (Scorpio, Leo, Taurus and Aquarius) as they are at their strongest; therefore, expect the impact of this eclipse’s effects to last even longer. The conflict with the east and west may continue for some time. Issues of security and family may be issues of talks and revisions for some time as well.

During the Solar Eclipse, I believe that it may be either a warm winter, or extremely cold, but one thing is certain, we need to be careful with fruits and vegetables as harvests may be affected by weather or pests. Additionally, Leo represents leaders which means there may be lots of activity within the military, and morals of the people may not be high. There also could be ongoing issues of leadership in America i.e. wrongdoings or secrets becoming uncovered.


Nevertheless, the new black moon like is no other, not only will it be all void but it will almost turn a hazy black at 2:20 EST , 11:20 PST while moving into 28 degrees in Leo. The eclipse and new moon will affect all late born Leos and fire signs, including ascendant or any one with Leo in their chart. This does not exclude fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) by domain. Once again, please remember this is based on VPAT which has no relation to Astrology besides the characteristics of certain elements.

In the Vedic culture, any kind of eclipse has been known to be an omen, and in many other cultures as well. Many theorists as well as astrologers believe negatives do occur in the eclipse times. However, few VPAT teachers and learners feel that eclipse is a time of change and embrace. With every negative comes a positive. Surely, eclipse brings difficulties for humanity as humans cannot handle change quickly; therefore, spirituality and reality must merge to give humanity equilibrium.


What does this mean for people on a personal front? One thing is certain, whether you have Leo in your chart or not, almost every one of us has a fire sign (Leo, Aries, Sagittarius) or fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius) somewhere in our chart, therefore whether by domain or by association this eclipse will affect each and every one of us. Leo is a sign of family and leadership. Since Mercury is retrograding in Leo and moving into Virgo this will cause communication issues, whereas what we want to say is not what is coming out (read more here).

Our emotions impact what we say and how we say it, thus they also influence the person receiving the message. According to VPAT calculation, Mars, the ruler of men, or as VPAT sees those of leadership and authority, is currently in the placement of Cancer. This could cause many leaders to take things out of context, being overly melodramatic or defensive, and could even have shortage of self-control and ethical reliability. Additionally, Venus is also in Cancer therefore, when the stronger of the two elements is fragile, subtle dialogues, movements, and patience is often enabled. Therefore, every relationship whether family, co-worker, or friendship could become very melodramatic for a month, possibly becoming volatile, and as we gradually moving away from Cancer energy it will magnify the characteristic of the energy it is in.


Many people will be infatuated with doing things their way just to fulfill their self-satisfaction even if it hurts others, and thins will be all about winning and overcoming others. Appearing almost as if it is a game of who is going to come out the best, the reality is that there is no challenge. This will be a completion of a phase or a momentous modification in course of matters concentrating on home, family, and health. It may be that a relationship ends or there is a completely new beginning.

Whether a new beginning or an end, Saturn, a planet of past life karma and teacher of difficult lessons, was in Sagittarius for a little, while according to VPAT. As of August 21, 2017, it moves back into Scorpio for their final lesson; making sure Scorpio has learned all they need to learn so that they don’t repeat the same mistakes again. Scorpio and all those that have any houses in Scorpio, including their domains i.e Fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius), will be affected until October 28, 2017. So, if you see some people being a bit quiet, leave them alone and be kind to them. Many people who have Scorpio in their chart and being questioned by the universal energies about their past actions are frightened. They will be feeling the taskmaster more so than ever before. Read about the 7-year transit (this is only the 5th year so far) as the last two years are graduate school. While releasing Saturn and this eclipse is knocking on our door, suspicion, worrying, and emotional or over-reactive communication will be a possibility from now until end of October or possibly the beginning of November.


This eclipse is predominantly objective and persistently concerned with the need to control any tendency of misery and depression, or agonize or manifest our own fatalities. Do not act on compulsion or it may blow up in your face and do not offer money to anyone. It’s time to intensely reflect on influences in the world, and the full manifestation of humanity. This 6 to 18-month period is a time to concentrate on public/societies, making contacts, teaching/instructing, and fostering compassion to siblings and friends.

This specific eclipse places a colossal universal prominence in one area of the Zodiac. We may deeply consider our feelings and needs within the context of the house, sign, and planetary aspects affected. To fully appreciate the potential the eclipse, we must explore both houses and signs that are brought into play. Where the Moon sits, we can provoke our demons, old behaviors and doubts, and where the Sun is we may find the means to hold or discharge from all that oppression we experience in life through our creative efforts. In any event, there are prospects for deeper understanding and finding a balance in our lives.


It is often noted that things which happen, good or bad, focusing around the eclipse do not happen on the day of the eclipse, but could reasonably happen months later as triggers of other events or planetary changes interacting with changes.

The Moon in Leo symbolizes a time of desires and charm. Ruled by the Sun, Leo creates an inspiration of cordiality, passion, and pleasure. There may be an aura of creativity, dignity, and generosity. It is a good time to pursue romance, be social, and to help others. Like the Lion that symbolizes Leo, many maybe self-confident, craving extreme gratefulness and acknowledgment.


The Leo energy can sometimes cause people to be more narrow-minded, obstinate, full of pride, annoyed, arrogant, self-centered, and patronizing. It’s also harder (but not impossible) to make fluctuations or be supple. It has not been easy for Leo’s and fixed signs for the past 2.5 to 3 years as Rahu has been causing problems. Rahu is a planet that causes calamities, catastrophes, and unexpected or unforeseen events in one’s life. Now it is entering Cancer. This does not mean it will be bad; it can be good as well. Personally, my son who is a Leo has had many good aspects of Rahu. This is because he chose the path of being honest and took the spiritual path during the last two years; therefore, unexpected resources, scholarships, and other things came to him unexpectedly. Whereas, I know some Leo’s that have experienced the reverse because of the choices they have made.

Leo’s cherish family, especially their mothers as they are majestic, studied, or significant people in their lives. Often people with Leo in their chart look for individuality, friendliness, and power in that relationship. Even with the beautiful energy it may be a bit problematic to stay consistent without pulling your hair out at least once or twice between now and the first two weeks in September, as the mixture of 5 planets, including Mangal (Mars), Rahu, Buddha (Mercury), Surya (Sun), and Chandra (Moon) are within few degrees of Ketu. Then it will join forces at Ketu. This means that all fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio) and Cardinal signs (Cancer, Aries, Libra and Capricorn) will be affected and their domains; all fire signs (Sagittarius included), air (Gemini), and water (Pisces). This covers nearly everyone.


As I elaborated earlier, VPAT considers every eclipse not good or bad, but just as change. What I am about to bring to you is not astrology or numerology. It is not premised on Western ideological astrological or Vedic astrological premises, rather a VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory) based upon mathematical prediction. Astrological signs are mere place holders of characters of within a group of inferences.

If you are interested in speaking to a western astrologer you may reach out to Lee Stillwaters, Leslie Hale, or Xtrology for your Tropical or Mixture astrology for the remainder of this year or next. For Vedic or Sidereal Astrology please get in touch with me and I can recommend websites or other connections which can assist you. However, I do not have phone connections, only those that you may mail your information and wait for predictions to be mailed back to you.


My predictions below will begin with the characteristics of placeholders that will be most impacted by the solar eclipse. Please note these predictions must be combined with the lunar eclipse earlier this month to get an overall picture of what you can expect for the next 6 months to a year.

Fixed Signs

Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus

Leo’s, this is not your last eclipse. As matter a fact your transformation began on February 10, 2017 (read about it here) and will continue until January, 2019. But at least Rahu is out of the picture. On the other hand, when Saturn leaves Scorpio, this is something Scorpio will be thankful for (read more about it here) and moves in to Sagittarius for long haul (read more here), there will be be many changes you may have to get used to. Aquarius, you and Leo’s are holding hands through these transits. Although you prematurely began your transit in 2016 (read about it here), your difficult transformation are over next summer. On the positive side, when Virgo hands the torch of Jupiter to Libra, by domain you may feel some added bonus. Taurus, you will be happy to know that besides minor planets, I don’t really foresee too much going on for a little while so sit back and enjoy this time out.

Leo: The next couple of years are a part of your transformation. You have had 2 years of building a foundation when Jupiter was in your sign. Now difficult transformations make you strong. Anxieties, fear, restless feelings, and physical, mental and emotional tension. This may all have to do with Rahu finally leaving and now you are ready to change your physical and personality aspects. This can be a difficult change as approval, self-initiative, and motivation may be needed. Additionally, when Saturn is touching family issues it is not helping, even though you may be doing ok with your finances or soon will get a good occupation or a job, it seems that many debts may have to be paid up by the end of the year.

Aquarius: This journey may be difficult but it is indeed spiritual. Partnership and commitments are important to you, however, you will be considering and reconsidering your relationships of all kinds. If you are in a solid, cordial relationship, then you will be playing a psychologist to your spouse or partner. If your relationship is lacking in something, or you are holding on for some reason, I would not be surprised if there are chances of quarrels between you and your spouse or partner. At the same time, there may be possible misunderstandings with those in business relationships with you. However, whether you are a man or a woman, there will be constant conflicts with women in general.

Scorpio: Through the Saturn transit one of the negative concepts will be your health. If you do not watch it, I would not be surprised if you get ill. But if you take care of yourself then the fruits of your labor will bloom like no other. New income, business, or career will give a sense of pleasure and peace. This is the time the universe will give you motivation and you will finally be recognized for your hard work. I would also not be surprised if you brush shoulders with prominent people.

Taurus: You can now breathe easy. Jupiter has blessed you. The only thing that could jeopardize anything would be Pluto, but it would be at a distance. Because of many things ending and transits completing, so are many things leaving your life. This means there may be empty nests, you may have moved away from your family or friends, or just experiencing a bit of emptiness. On one hand you’re happy that it is finally finished, however, on the other hand you may feel discontented with your life and there may be difficulties with family members, especially motherly figures, either through communication or health, but there will definitely be deep soul searching about your life.

Fire Signs

Sagittarius,  Aries and Leo (listed above)

Sagittarius, though many will say that Saturn has moved on, according to VPAT as of October 28, 2017, your journey has just begun (read about it here). Please note that Saturn does not have to be bad as Saturn’s journey can be a beautiful gift of wonderful delight. Both you and your brother Aries should be quite happy that Rahu has moved away from you but Saturn and the eclipse will impact on your both. Uranus continues to be placed in Aries so you may continue to feel the unexpected for some time but remember, it’s all in how you handle things.

Sagittarius: Some may call you workaholics when you don’t have company around. But often this is not good when it affects your health. Minor frustrations may arise and if you decide to take a long-distance trip, give yourself plenty of time as glitches and fatigue may occur. It may also be difficult for you to be recognized and you could have some unrest. This is because you are learning a lot about who you are and the world you live in; you may dive into different cultures, norms, and philosophies. But watch out for that crazy M&M (Mercury Man) at the end of the year, he is coming to bite you.

Aries: So many unexpected things have occurred in your life; actually, this has been going on for about 7 years and I believe many of you may be saying “enough already”. The time is almost here I promise you. Saturn, Uranus, and the eclipse bring many changes for you, but nothing you cannot handle. If you recall, something big happened in February of this year – something ended. This time, that same thing is opening; it may have to do with a commitment, children, home, spouse, or other relationship. Or it could be heavy responsibilities. Now you really need to watch yourself and how you carry yourself as there is a high probability of verbal abuse, disrespect, and difference of opinions with family members, including partners and children. Health concerns, confusion, lack of focus, misinterpretation, and bad investments can occur. I would really suggest not taking anything personally at this time and it’s best to say nothing.

Cardinal Signs

Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries (See above)

Cardinal signs will move through mixed emotions for the next 6 months. However, Cancers will be going through a very deep transformation of Rahu as they dive deeply into Rahu transit for the next 2 years. As things happen unexpectedly for them, they occur to basically prepare them for their eclipse cycle in 2018. I spoke lightly about this transit in my lunar eclipse blog (read more about it here). Libra should be happy as they will be handed the torch of abundance from Virgo who has been holding on to it for the past 1.5 years. But they need to be careful as Jupiter can cause weight gain and an inflated ego. Unfortunately, things may seem dark for some time for Capricorn and the ongoing soul search of death and rebirth will continue for them at least until 2025. Perhaps other positive aspects will assist them with getting out of gloominess. Aries, you too have a long journey of transformation which has been described above.

Cancer: You have grown so much, however, now you are slowly approaching what I call a hibernation mode. Rahu may cause some ruckus in your life. Again, this does not have to be bad, but it can be; when you are not paying attention, accidents can happen. There may be unnecessary arguments with your family or partner/spouse. As you know, when that happens it affects your health. But this is because your temper is getting the best of you and your lips are talking way too much which will get you in deep trouble. Instead, you should be taking this energy, looking at your budget, and looking at ways of earning more money.

Libra: Things should not have been too bad for you for the past 6 months besides minor glitches. As the old saying goes, to pave the road, one has to break the old. Little by little you have done just that. Now you will be looking at your hopes, wishes, friends, love, luck, and future. But most of all, mighty Jupiter is dangling the carrot of resourceful advances, public respect, and accomplishment. Your heart will be blessed with the pitter- patter of delight in get-together with friends, family, and other events.

Capricorn: Most certainly, deep thinking has been there for you. Hence the universe will not let you be sad forever without a transformation of your own. Think back to 2009, it’s time to fix it. If you have done well, or if you can take the change, well you can be happy. However, this is one of those deep transformations; naturally it is about your individual transformation on a higher plane. With our power and control, who are you will be the question. If you worry too much it will affect your well-being, including your finances and self-esteem. Only you can choose your path.

Mutable Signs

Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius (See above)

Pisces: About the only thing that may disturb you is Neptune and Mercury retrograde. But that is not really bad. Mercury may slow you down and Neptune puts you in a dream world which won’t clear up any time soon, so enjoy the ride. The problem with this eclipse will be a double-edged sword. You do like to work hard and make lots of money. But if you do not take care of yourself and continue to do things for yourself while continuing to be at service to others, then you may not feel well at all. This could cause you life-threatening difficulties. However, diligence will give you dominance over many situations and you will have virtuous outcomes with victory and gratification. Thus, you must choose your health or your success. Choose between balance, or an all-or-nothing approach.

Gemini: Every three to four months you are like the Linda Blair project with M&M by your side. But you always seem to find a way out. Now the universe is blessing you finally, and telling you to get ready to learn. Hence the learning won’t be difficult but it will be different. The way you are communicating and acting towards others is just not working, it’s time to change. You will be given positive increases and advancements if you are mindful in how you interact with everyone. Additionally, how mindful you are about your rational processes and philosophies you share will be important. Through collective involvement your individual power will escalate. You will also be able to get assistance from people you never thought you could and you will travel.

Virgo: You now have less than a month to plant your seed. You may have gained some weight through Jupiter and now you may be considering weight loss or some sort of a health regime. Stress and uneasiness may cause many Virgos to take time away from their partners/spouses or family for meditation, spirituality, weight-loss, or retreats. Mindfulness is necessary in regards to resources and money. Too much stress and an inability to pay attention with wandering minds could cause minor accidents which could lead Virgos to think about death/rebirth. It could also be that they hear about the death of someone which could cause them to think about their life and how they must begin the laying down of arms and give themselves to their higher power. But most of all, practice selflessness to bring peace of mind.


The information above is VPAT trends not to be mistaken for astrology. For Western astrology charts and predictions please make an appointment with one of my recommended advisers Lee Stillwaters, Leslie Hale or Xtrology.

Numerous articles have horrified me as there have been immeasurable statements of chaos, war etc. Eclipses often carry progresses in one’s life or support personal accounts to make advances toward steadiness. It is a time for growth, out of breath truth, securing evidence of the spiritual world, and getting practical facts from people. Exhale, the meaning of sustainability and permanency will be present. If what you do for a living was done with all your effort, then heaven will be support you. If not, you will be given signs where your shortcomings were.


As this eclipse is the exact replica of the August 22, 1998 eclipse, I was curious to see what the parallels are with the present day. I remember my husband and I were having a conversation when the President was elected and I said to him “If our president causes a war or a threat of a war by August 2017, then he has repeated history.” Perhaps at that time it did not make sense or no one thought of that. But, as I sit here today and listen to the news, how close are we to a war with North Korea?

On August 07, 1998 and August 22, 1998, there was an Aquarius / Leo axis of eclipses, just as it is right now. At that time the lunar eclipse was visible in Africa and Americas, and the solar eclipse was visible in Europe and Asia. Therefore, the lunar eclipse directly impacted the United States as the bombings occurred in Africa killing 225 people and injuring 4,500 people. In retaliation (Leo power), two days before the eclipse (as I have said the energy can be felt 7 days before or after) August 22, 1998 the U.S. launched a missile in Afghanistan and Sudan (Asia). Therefore, whichever the country is able to view the eclipse is impacted by the eclipse.

Thus, the August 07/08, 2017 eclipse was viewed by Europe and Asia similar to 1998 eclipse (read about it here). In the same aspect, the August 21, 2017 eclipse will be viewed by the United States. If Mercury was not present would it have been identical? We know Mercury retrograde brings things from the past back and brings things to view again. Only time can tell what the fate will be of the nation through the energy of the Divine as the energy will be captured for the next 6 months. But I can say that 1998 was also a time when President Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice. Is there any similar chaos going on right now?

I also want to elaborate that in my lunar eclipse blog (read about it here) I spoke about winds. In 1998 some of the most intense hurricane and tornadoes destroyed crops in the United States. Could this happen to Asia this time or the United States?


The new moon conveys concerns of message, exactness, spreading the word, and reaching out. Facts are dynamic to decision making, and all the facts we have and need will now be available to us! With these most important aspects ending, we’ve learned the lessons of not collaborating, and refusing to incorporate new data with our experiences from the past. It is also a time to celebrate and have fun. Release stress through walking, playing, contacting brothers and sisters, and embracing the child within!

The moon in Leo is Spirited, Valiant, Intense, Supervisory, and Structured, AND SHORT-TEMPERED. It is my suggestion that you purchase orange and white candles and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lemon oil or orange oil and chant the Psalm 65.


You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention. When it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. This year I have chosen to make available 1 easy mantra and 2 difficult mantras for the both the solar eclipse and the new moon.

The Solar Eclipse Mantra


Easy:

Aum hram hrim hraum sah suryaya namah

(aauuum Hraaam Hreem Hraaaum Saaah Suuureeeyaaya Naaamaha)

Difficult

Om Adityaaya Vidmahe divaakaraaya dheemahi, tannah suryah prachodayaat

Expert

Om Tryambhakam Yajamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam Urvarukamiva Bandhanan
Mrityor Mukshiya Maamritat

For the New moon in Leo


Easy

Om Hreeng Shreeng Sauh

Oooom Hriiing Shriing Sauuuh

Difficult:

Aum namah suryay shantaya sarva rog vinashane Ayuh arogyam aishwarya dehi deva jagatpate… japa kusum sankash kashyapeyam mahadhytim dhvantari sarva paapdhanam pranatotsim divakara

Expert:

Nagendraharaya trilacanaya bhasmanga ragaya mahesvaraya nityaya suddhaya digambaraya tasme na karaya nama: shivaya… Mandakini salila candana carcitaya nandisvara pramathanatha mahesvaraya mandarapuspa bahupuspa supujitaya tasme ma karaya namah shivaya


The objective of this mantra is to have balance through obscurity and blurred energy as well as bringing closer and opening new doors for fire and fixed signs. With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old declaration, even if there is only the slightest change, and create new ones. The perfect number for aspirations is 10.

From August 22, 2017 through September 1, 2017, I will be offering my last 6-month in-depth readings of the year, focusing specifically on self-readings and short-term relationship readings. Wishing you the best of this eclipse and may the transformation you have in the new year come to be more auspicious and spiritual than the year before.

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.

ecleo2176

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)

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.

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.

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.

Om Hariharaya Balamukundaya Namaha

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.
