Luminous Light: Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius August 2017

Partial Lunar Eclipse

Full Moon in Aquarius

Raksha Bandhan 2017

August 7/8, 2017

By Maharani Rutan©

What a delight! After all the craziness of spring and summer, perhaps the universe is finally giving humanity a gift. There is a sense of delight in the air, even if VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) state otherwise.

On August 7/8, there will be three beautiful celestial events, perhaps by name or by culture, but they are just as rich in culture as they are in name. Maybe this is why the names of the moons were also unique, depending upon the region. In the Northern hemisphere, the August Full moon is referred to as the Green Corn Moon and in the Southern hemisphere, the Storm Moon. This is naturally so, due to the massive rain and thunder that Mother Nature provides during the last days of summer.

I spoke about this celestial event in my predictive blog of 2017 as being the beginning of something new. On August 07, 2017, the Penumbral Eclipse begins at 11:50 EST and 8:50 PST. Though I would like to say that the United States will be able to view this eclipse, it may be a bit difficult. This time around, most of Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and those who live close to the shores of the Pacific, Atlantic and the Indian Oceans, will be able to view this marvelous unification.

The partial eclipse occurs when the moon is full and when the sun, earth and moon are almost in a straight line; however, when it is a partial eclipse it never reaches a perfectly straight line. Instead, a minor portion of the moon is shielded by the obscurest part of the earth’s sleuth (the scientific name is umbra). Partial eclipse will begin at 1:22pm EST / 10:22am PST.

As the beautiful celestial moon begins to form at 2:10pm EST and 11:10am PST, the eclipse reaches its maximum eclipse at 2:20pm EST and 11:20am PST. Full moon in Aquarius will be luminous and stunning at 15 degrees, depending upon the orb, on the Leo-Aquarius axis. The brilliance of this moon can be seen as soon as 2:10 EST. This will be the last full moon in Aquarius this year, so clinch and inhale. The closest we came to this degree of moon was on August 9, 2006 when there was also a full moon in Aquarius, but at 16 degrees. VPAT states that sometimes when the orb is this close, the energy often recalls issues similar to those that occurred during the time of the last occurrence.

Maximum eclipse moves through the atmosphere until it finally begins to revert back into partial eclipse again at 3:18pm EST and 12:18pm PST. This will lessen the intensity for humanity about one hour later when Penumbral eclipse ends at 4:50pm EST and 1:50pm PST. The eclipse on August 07, 2017 transpires in Aquarius, the free energetic Aquarius whom will have surprise affected. This eclipse will also affect people with fixed signs strong in their charts (the fixed signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius).

This time definitely recalls, to some degree, unresolved business/issues/dilemmas which occurred in the fall of 1998 to spring of 2000, Fall of 2008 to Spring of 2009, and Fall of last year. This is NOT the end of a cycle, but rather, a new beginning. It sets the stage for important lessons involved with reaching, recognizing, working towards individual influence, and how to use this energy, applying it to leadership and authoritative abilities. The supreme leadership abilities with the highest bliss on a collective, and social service to the world would be considered part of the Leo/Aquarius Axis. But it will also be substantial transformation in the course of concerns concentrating on home, family, and health. There could be a possibility that relationships could end, families drift apart, or family functionality may somehow alter.

Besides the Eclipse, and a full moon, it is one of the most beautiful auspicious days in the Hindu calendar next to Dwali. Based on the Hindu Lunar Calendar, Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi Day, is the traditional day of love and celebration between brothers and sisters. Now any woman who looks up to a man as her brother, be it a neighbor, friend, cousin, or even a co-worker, is a part of the celebration.

The legend of Rakshandan has been depicted in the ancient historic writings of the Mahabhrata. When Lord Krishna hurt his finger during an epic battle against evil, his sister ripped a fabric from her Sari and tied it around his hand. In return, Krishna vowed to protect her as long as he lived. This tradition was carried forward by many other emperors during the B.C era. Additionally, the brother must come to the sister’s home and she must do Arti (bless him) and tie a Rakhi then he must promise to protect her. For fun he is supposed to give her money; becoming more fun when she says it’s not enough and complains.

Fixed signs (Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, and Scorpio), and those who have houses in these signs on your VPAT chart, go back to what happened to you around to the dates given; take a good look as it’s time to re-live it and make sure that you do not make the same mistakes again. It may be possible that you may relive it anyway as Mercury Retrograde may force it upon you (Read more about it here).

Persons with fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius) will have complications splitting opinions from emotions and identifying that somebody or something is not what it seems. Things are all self-perception or an illusion somewhat more than a passionate obligation. These individuals resolve to be preoccupied doing things that affect their happiness or are in pursuit of their hunger; all the while wasting their talents and having a tug of war between their heart and their goals.

The full moon in Aquarius will be luminous and stunning at 15 degrees, depending upon the orb, on the Leo-Aquarius axis. The brilliance of this moon can be seen at 2:10 EST, 11:10PST. This will be the last full moon in Aquarius this year so clinch and inhale. The closest we came to this degree of moon was in August 9, 2006 when there was also a full moon in Aquarius but at 16 degrees.

With Moon in Aquarius, people are prone to have an emotional coldness – a flair for impartiality concerning their own and others’ feelings. Their opinion would be sensitive to any situation whether rationally or scientifically. Many approaches may come up unpredictably. Preferring to channel sentimental energy into intellectual pursuits to subdue pain- whereas, the company of friends is an outlet for passionate satisfaction.

When the Moon is full, the force of the moon on one side of the earth and the Sun on the other side generates an unsteady magnetism. This heaviness enhances problems due to our physical structure which consists of 80% water. Consequently, this distresses humans as well as the atmosphere of the earth. There is a good chance to hear about issues of water overflows such as hurricanes, flooding rivers, and even tornadoes that involve water. These issues could last up to 6 months.

The eclipse energy is just like the full moon energy. Some people will begin to feel it 5 to 7 days before it occurs. However, due to all the planets, I would not be surprised if many did not feel it as early as July 21 forwards when Mercury began to move into Leo. Things may have caused some confusion within the family, where one side wanted freedom the other side wanted structure.

An eclipse intensifies full moon purpose which is mostly about conclusions, departing stages in one’s life, and the final end. For each climax, there confidently will be a new start. While it may be challenging, an adjustment is desirable for the healthier environment. This affect can be escalating for those who have the sun, moon, or any houses in Aquarius.

Those that were born February 04 through 09, or five days before or after, will feel this energy like no other. There is no hesitation that this vitality generates an internal pull, a sensation of totality, and may aid one to join substantially with others. All converts fragile and more powerful under the grace of the full moon – hunger and dignity can become overblown, and there is more consciousness and emphasis on relationships.

Lunar eclipses frequently impact relationships due to the push and pull of the sun and the moon along with the pressure. They often convey a message of conclusiveness, or obvious circumstances, to the area where the eclipse is placed, in this case (Aquarius). Eclipse’s often eliminates things out of people’s lives so that it fits the circumstances of the current standings. If it be a relationship, a home, career or a place one lives, if it is outdated or has no purpose it is time to let go. This can be difficult; thus, this is why the eclipse is here – to walk through the difficulties and to embrace the Supreme Being that the universe has made. Once the process is embraced, whatever is left is meant to be and other stuff will fall by the wayside.

This eclipse is predominantly relationship oriented and our influences with others can be detached, tested, or unexpectedly repaired towards calm as the jolt calls one to action. To completely raise the value of the prospective in the lunar eclipse, we commit to discover, equally, houses and signs combined. It is recommended to examine your VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theoretical Chart) and notice the placement of the moon; this is called Ketu (our demons, old habits and fears) and the sun placement Rahu (release from whatever bondage we experience in life through our creative efforts, better known as afterlife). Therefore, what we do in this lifetime gives us the chances for abysmal understanding, and the finding of balance in our lives.

The energy is perfect, whereas for the following 4 to 6 days there will be profound dreams and a lack of sleep. Some of the dreams may not make sense but remember keep these dreams to yourself as this is your personal communication between you and the higher power. The messages will be loud and clear as early as 40 days from the lunar eclipse and all the answers will be there for you by the next eclipse, within 6 months.

It is imperative to understand the effect of eclipse and the influences of each characteristic of human beings. The information which I am bringing to you is neither Western Astrology nor Vedic Astrology; it is Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories. The philosophical writings teach that names of characters in astrology are placeholders, yet each placeholder has special characteristics. No two people will have same characteristics. Where action causes a reaction causing conflict, humanities free will can cause conflicts and desiccate it as well.

If you are looking for a Western Astrologer you may make an appointment with my recommended astrologer Lee Stillwater or Leslie Hale as well as Xtrology. The abstract is a general tendency not to be exact with a specific person.

I will begin with the characteristics that will be affected the most.

Fixed Signs

Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, and Scorpio

Aquarius: You will find that your career life may improve; however, you may lose your patience with family members. If you decide to go on any trip, it will be beneficial for you. You may decide that your behavior and opinion of yourself needs a transformation. Due to emotional connections and disturbances it may take a toll on your health. There also may be consideration of redefining principles, self-respect, and happiness. Be careful with the upper part of your face if you are accident prone.

Leo: Unnecessary worries may be a waste of time as most of your wishes will be granted. Be sure to read every document as Mercury retrograde and the eclipse may cause fuzziness for you. Financial gains are possible; however, be careful with investments and your health, which is getting better. If travelling, make sure to view everything with caution. There may be trouble in paradise if you are in a relationship; if there is stability then there will be a deeper commitment. Now is the time to reconsider your relationship, looking at the physical and mental disposition of the other to see if they meet your expectation.

Taurus: You may have to relearn how to control pressure, as you will have work overload. There may be financial losses if there were financial investments in the past that were not secure and the worries will be overwhelming. There may be plenty of temptations. Professionally, things may be good, and while there is a possibility of diving into spirituality and meta-philosophy in your domestic life, job responsibilities must come first. Consideration and re-consideration of career where there is appreciation may be overdue.

Scorpio: There are possibilities of family disagreements. Finances will be stable with no growth, but there are plenty of expenses, and if you happen to travel during that time you may become lethargic. There may be deep thought of where you want to live or the type of place you would like to have, what type of education you should have, and your future.

Mutable Signs

Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo and Pisces

Gemini: Things may not be as consistent as you are used to, especially in areas of work. Do not take anything emotionally or personally. There are tendencies of a lack of support and you may be forced to do things by yourself. Due to stress, you may have a cold or minor influenza. There may be plans to travel long distances or possibilities of going back to school. Your views of religion or philosophies may once again change. There will be deeper thought about religious outlook, a father figure, visions, and dreams.

Sagittarius: There is a possibility that things will begin to sync again. Endurance is going to be tested while any property related matters should be postponed as long as possible. Due to mental stress from things out of your control there may be minor colds or ear infections. You may consider purchasing electronics, learning something new, and doing what you can to keep lines of communication open. Short trips will beneficial to the soul. Reconsideration of relationships between siblings, where one resides, and how efficient one is in regard to completing things will be the focus.

Virgo: Improvement in your career is possible with new duties due to the blessings of Jupiter. You have all that you need to fix and collaborate on any issues in the workplace. However, you will now see your enemies without a mask and you will fear them, but now it’s time to teach them a lesson with your own weapons. Be careful of public humiliation. Stress may cause a fever or cold, and eat at home as much as possible. You will now reconsider the type of employee you are or the ones that work under you, debts you have, and any enemies along with why they are so.

Pisces: Be careful, your words may cut people like a knife; as I always say, words can never be taken back. Financial stability is on its way. It’s best to plan first, then explain. Family life is going to be exceptional but spending time with friends may be difficult. Your enemies are near and you may even see them. Be careful while traveling, making sure to take plenty of rest afterwards. Anything that was causing you problems physically will soon end. You are prone to reconsider legal issues, your relationships, success, and your reputation.

Cardinal Signs

Libra, Aries, Cancer and Capricorn

Libra: You may feel that to obtain your goals you must work diligently, and your work ethics and reputation will rise. Consider options and the advice of others prior to resolving any vital dilemma or making judgments. Financially things will be status quo however, stress may continue and this may cause to splurge to dine out which could cause food poisoning. Relationships may be tested at this time. There is a possibility of reconsidering your love life, scruples, education, desire, and what you find stimulating.

Aries: There is a possibility of irritation at work due to lack of recognition from upper management. There is a possibility of financial gains through investments but make those investments wisely and don’t do them on a “get rich quick” scheme. There is little support from your colleagues. However, your health is good. You should be able to make new connections and keep your friends and associates close, but your temper and emotions may push them away. Chances of reconsidering friends, occupation, money, and desire, will weigh heavily on your mind.

Cancer: Unexpected financial gains are possible but it may be difficult to balance family and career life. There is a possibility of laziness, but family life will be very enjoyable as will travel. Be careful of legal issues but romance should be good right now. However, you will have a heavy heart meditating on doubts, insurance, long life, injury, suspensions, and rejections.

Capricorn: As Mercury moves into Virgo, and the eclipse does a number on Capricorn, signing documents and financial situations may not be the best. Consideration must be taken and take head of any professional consul prior to financial investments. Enemies are hidden and covert actions or reactions must be eliminated. It’s possible that the only person you may be able to count on is your partner or significant other. It’s better to pay off old debts and learn a new skill than to splurge. A deep reconsideration of income, revenues, accomplishments, dreams, family, and safety is absolute at this time.

Consider the information that is listed above as a general tendency not to be specific with a single scenario or a specific person. It is also driven by theoretical prospective of VPAT, not to be mistaken for Western or Vedic Astrology.

Eastern cultures base their entire lives around the cosmos and therefore consider eclipse as a very transformative time. Any eclipses are abysmal times to begin or end anything, no matter how difficult it may be; including every matter of the heart, financial related issues such as work, or any other imperative situation in one’s daily life. There is an old saying that things can only be blessed when the sun and the moon are present and not being blocked from humanity, otherwise things become very weird, unexpected, and appear out of nowhere.

The influence of emotional energy can be advantageous if focused into artistic endeavors and self-healing, but often there is a strong yearning to merely slide into diversion. It is better to indulge in optimistic activities, rather than harvest to more damaging fantasy doings. Miserable propensities can be effortlessly direct under this full moon and the eclipse. The influence of this energy can be exclusively tough or thought-provoking for those who were born under a Full Moon PHASE, as well as for those of the fixed Sun Signs Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio and Taurus.

Also, for those whose birth Moon is in Aquarius, this Full Moon can sometimes signify a perilous time for possible misfortunes, injuries, sloppiness and the undertaking of rash decisions or judgments. During this spectacular time of the shining lunar eclipse and amazing full moon, attaining goals is our first priority. Strip yourself of all outer roles, doubts, and unimportant pursuits, and dive into the ocean of bright infusing all existence. Like a particle of sand that liquefies in the enormous sea, discharge your singular ego into the endless grip of divine realization. Respire in light; inhale out light. Touch the cells of your body and become incandescent and radiant with the powerful glow of divine

Sanction the substantial encumbrances of the past months to fall away. Fly like a light being and an angel of the heavens, in the melodious sky of paradise and peace. During the eclipse your psyche may be triggered but do not respond until you are undeniably convinced. The awareness will play tricks and later there may be a need to save grace and face.

Aquarius energy creates the foundation of emotional objectivity – a knack for impartiality regarding your own and others’ feelings. However, at the same time, Aquarius moon brings a sense of independence and diversity. There may be tendencies to be an outsider looking in. Watching delicate circumstances rationally and systematically- Feelings may come up indiscriminately. The tension in this moon will be to make a choice between what is more important, personal need or what is good for the soul and spirit. For emotional contentment seek the company of friends who do not criticize.

During the full moon, you may look to your mother for relationship and intellectual stimulation, yet you may feel that she is cold or aloof. Through her opinions there is a deep understanding of how life is a puzzle and it’s time to put it together.

Full Moons and eclipses in AIR SIGNS are times are more fragile motivation, because the Sun as Life Giver is strong in the FIRE signs. Emotions are robust, of a happy and lighthearted nature. Of course, this applies primarily to those whose charts are not unduly afflicted in the sign of Aquarius and the other fixed signs.

During the Lunar Eclipse, we must observe life in a different prospective. This means to re-write aspirations as:” I need aid in making what I vision and power to manifest joy through this process. I need the understanding to love more and the skill to involve in a positive environment. I need to understand about my goals.” I also recommend that during this cycle that you purchase a blue & white candle carve your name through to the wick and chant in silence Psalm 40 three times. Allow yourself to chant these words every night until the next eclipse in Aquarius (next spring) and let the grandeur of the higher power enter your body, mind, and soul.

With all submissions of psalms and mantras, completing the anticipated results are dependent upon the skill of purpose. The mantras can be difficult to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy.

For the eclipse there will be three mantras for the moon and two for the eclipse

The mantra for Aquarius/Capricorn moon is:


Om Hreeng Aing Kleeng Shreeng

(ooommm Hriiing Aiiinngg Kliiing Shriiing)


Om Shreem Upendraya Achutaya Namah


“Yasya:nke cha vibha:ti bhu:dharsuta: devapaga: mastake, Bhale balbidhurgale cha garalam yasyorasi vyalraat Soyam bhumivibhisanah survarah sarvadhipah sarvada: Sharvah sarvgatah shivah shashinibhah shri Shankar patu maam”

For the lunar eclipse:


Om Somaya Namaha

(ooom Soomaaayaaa na ma ha)


“Dadhi Shankha tushaarabham ksheero darnava sambhavam
Namaami shashinam somam shambhor mukuta bhushanam”


Om Ksheeraputraya Vidmahe Amruta-tatvaya Dhimahi Tanno
Chandra PrachodayatMars: Om Angarakaya Vidmahe Sakti Hastaya Dhimahi Tanno Bhaumah PrachodayatSaturn: Om Neelanjanaya Vidmahe Chhayamartandaya Dhimahi Tanno Shani Prachodayat:

This mantra creates the quality of friendship within oneself and others. The Siddha mantra uses the universal elements that govern each charka: Earth, Water, Fire and Air. The intention of this mantra is the to keep up in balance from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy it also smooths your path in life by helping you understand the lessons you have set for yourself and, through karma, the negativity will pass.

These are universal predispositions based upon VPAT predictive calculations. I am NOT an astrologer nor do I claim to be, however Astrology is a building block to the Vedic Sanskrit readers. While astrology focuses are on immobile emotional and physical events, a Vedic reader focuses on remedial factors to deal with the energy in hand. While Astrology focuses on educative predictions, Vedic reading looks at causes of an action which prompts a reaction.

VPAT ideology confers that these utilities are a necessary part of our lives. Since our mind guides the ego it is our emotions that set the plans into action, good or bad. If the action chosen is passed through humility and honesty, then life will always bring positive outcomes in the end. Wishing you the most pleasing and innocuous journey through this eclipse and I hope you are granted the positive light you desire.

Starting August 8, 2017, I will be accepting appointments for 6-month self-readings and 3-month relationship readings. Priority will be given to Aquarius and Fixed signs in the first two days. For more information please look at my service page for prices as well as how to book a reading. Additionally, I have added two more aspects to my reading which may be beneficial to those who gear towards timings.

New Facts, Habits, Actions: Blind Leap of Faith: “Almost Lunar Eclipse” in Aquarius August 2016

auge8316Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius

Full moon in Aquarius

August 18, 2016

By Maharani Rutan©

Long before I began to write about this eclipse all I could do was to correlate this phenomenal event with the 60’s era. This was a time when people did what they wanted to do and participated in protests against racism, sexism, politics, and social roles; not to mention the protests for the transformation of governmental oversight. It was also a time of new innovations, technology, and new freedom. At the same time shocking deaths forced many to reform what they treasured here in the states as well as abroad. Younger generations, confused and doubtful, took on the mainstream by cultivating change. They were the tree huggers and hippies, wearing dreadlocks and long hair.

LSD put them in a trance so they could fly into another world and marijuana soothed their pain. It was believed that the more love one gave became the more love received. The only song that lingered in my mind, rippling like an ear worm even though I was not born until the later part of the 60’s, was “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In “by The 5th Dimension. If you have not heard it, it’s a must listen and can be found on YouTube. The lyric begins like this…


When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
Age of Aquarius

Great artists like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead, Joe Cocker, and Crosby, Stills & Nash all had something to say and lit up Woodstock. So here we are 47 years later. Does anything going on right now look or sound familiar? Open your eyes! This is what Aquarius is all about – a vision, enlightenment goals, and most of all, opportunities. This is your clarity, your spirituality, and your transformation. However, this transformation is only the first stage.

Imagine for a moment, the universe wants to turn you into a beautiful spiritual flower unique and so sublime. But to turn energy into a spiritual flower it requires stages and is stage one. In this stage there is an awakening, a closing of one door to open another. The door however, must be sealed shut, never to be opened again. The universe has to show you that the seal cannot be broken and transformation must occur. As history repeats itself it evolves. The evolution becomes more complex, more driven, and this means more conflict driven. But at the end of transformation a rebirth will change history, people, and the entire social structure, bringing us back to look at where we are today.

The 2016 Olympics in Rio have already begun, assuring minor glitches with the trickster Mercury in the heart of all (read about it here). As Aquarius loves to bring groups and people together. Leo energy loves to be loved; embrace the energy and other people, and with it brings richness and companionship and friendship.


This is the very start to the message that is being delivered across India on the 18th of August; a message of hope, relationship, bond, and affection. Since the eclipse is not as intense, this day will be one of celebration, prayers, and thankfulness of siblings. But not just any siblings, but of brothers and sisters, it is known as Raksha Bandhan. The translation of Raksha Bandhan is known as “an oath of protection.” This is a day when all brothers make an oath to their sister, or sisters, that they will protect them from destruction or difficulties. They will pray that God will always protect them from evil. In return then sister/sisters will tie the silk thread called Rakhi (now beautifully decorated) to the right wrist of her brother to remind him to pray and she in turn will pray for his well being. This is a traditional method of celebration. As times have changed women tie Rakhi, for the same reasons, on those whom they feel are like brothers or protectors to them.

As we slowly move across the street like a snail on a hot summer day, what we wanted to see was this big bright Lunar Eclipse that lights the sky like so many times before. But for the first time in so many years, the sun won’t kiss the moon or the earth, therefore it is called an “Almost Penumbral Lunar Eclipse.” Under normal circumstances, a penumbra eclipse occurs when the moon, earth, and the sun form an “almost” straight line but the earth blocks “some” of the sun’s light from reaching the moon’s surfaces and as it is called penumbra the name for this eclipse is self-evident. In this instance however, it is “almost”, meaning that no one on planet earth will be able to view it. Additionally, its duration, if it were to occur, would last only 2 minutes and 42 seconds.


With no lunar eclipse the sun will still light the skies and form a magnificent light opening the gateway to transformation for Aquarius and those that have Aquarius anywhere in their chart. However, this eclipse will not just alter the visions for Aquarius, but also impact and shake his brother and sister fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus) and by characteristics Air signs (Gemini & Libra) as well as all those that have planets associated in the houses listed above. However, looking at the calculation through Vedic Sanskrit analysis I would not be surprised if mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces) and early signs are affected also as they are right in the range of the impact of the intensity. There are very few of you that are being left out of the equation. This would seem that it could be a plus or a negative as the energy of the next two eclipses could have you shaking a little bit more than normal. To find out how or where you will personally be affected I would suggest you contact my recommended astrologers here or here.

As I always roll forward and backward, history impacts our future and impacts our present. The energy of this full moon as it sits at 25 degrees in Aquarius/Leo with its brightness visible at 5:27am EST and 2:27 am PST will keep many people awake. But this is not the first time we have felt this energy. On August 16, 2008, we had a Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees in Aquarius/Leo which was very close to this degree and the familiarity brings chills. Rewind please…

In August 2008, an enormous ceremony opens in Beijing with about 15 thousand performers, over 100 thousand in the stadium, and over 900 million watching; within a few days, an American couple is stabbed at the Olympics. After having to rebuild its City from Katrina, New Orleans had to brace again for Hurricane Gustav. Several natural disasters killed hundreds in India between the stampede in Nepal and Bihar floods. While the U.S joint forces conducted a lethal airstrike killing many Afghani civilians, Senator Obama is elected the Democratic presidential nominee while Hilary Clinton challenges the Democratic Party by requesting followers to assemble behind Obama. Though the circumstances have changed and maybe even some of the roles, don’t some of the events look a bit familiar?

Hence, the world will not be the only thing at center stage during this eclipse; this eclipse is bringing back to a certain point issues and business that was undone August through September of 2007 and February through August of 2007. This is a substantial adjustment concentrating predominantly on matters of home, family, and health. This will also greatly distress relationships as the full moon will activate endings and I would not be surprised if relationships end or come to a breaking point where there is some consideration of a separation or time out.

Aquarius energy has a natural tendency to have some detachment as observation and queues are quite important to their energy. But the full moon will intensify this – the ability for showing impartiality when connecting to our feelings and those of others is of major importance. To view sensitive conditions rationally and systematically is the name of the game. Feelings are erratic. Preferring to channel emotional energy into scholarly pursuits – sometimes just to avoid feeling at all, or turning pain into pleasure could be the way out. The company of friends for emotional joy is the key to self-gratification. By nurturing others and appreciating their brilliance and um-conventionalities could bring curiosity back from darkness. A Motherly figure could also stimulate intellectual pursuits, but she is distant or aloof.

In a way, we are all desperately seeking spirituality and peace after the chaos and shocks that have rippled through our veins and this eclipse is just a glimpse of what is yet to come.

The information I am giving you below is not western astrology or Vedic astrology, rather Vedic philosophical inferences based upon mathematical anomalies. The Astrological names are placeholders as named signs in which difficulties may occur.

If you are looking for a Western Astrologer, you may seek counsel with my preferred astrologers Leslie or Lee here. If they are unavailable, you may reach out to my other available astrologers. If you are looking for a Vedic Astrologer, the only ones I know and trust are not located in the states therefore I am able to give a referral at this time.


I will begin the analysis with the signs that will be affected by the eclipses most intensely. As this is the first mini, I call it a “touch” lunar eclipse focusing primarily on Aquarius. By association, the focus will be on Aquarius and Fixed signs.

Fixed Signs

Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio

Along with this Eclipse, which will transform many of you spiritually and emotionally, other planetary influences may also cause some difficulties. Some will bring luck (that is what it will feel like) and some will cause difficulties. It depends upon which influences you wish to follow. According to Vedic philosophies Saturn resumes in Scorpio retrograde which will influence all fixed signs and those that have Scorpio planets in their charts until Mid-September when it moves direct. Alternatively, Western Astrology purports that Saturn is retrograde in Sagittarius which will influence fire signs which focuses primarily on Sagittarius and fire signs. The influence of Jupiter is moving away from Leo and moving into Virgo in September which will influence Taurus. However, Mercury retrograde has already begun to cause some dissimulation and will cause changes and re-considerations to specific details. It is my suggestion to combine both the eclipse and retrograde information to visualize a more concrete prospective.

Aquarius: This is your eclipse. No matter how small it may seem to the naked human eye, trust me when I tell you that emotionally and spiritually it may seem so intense that through your perception it will seem larger than the sky itself. This transition will continue to turn you from a caterpillar into a butterfly. But remember, coming out of a cocoon is not an easy job and some butterflies never make out. The trials and tribulations that continue to place stresses in your life will come to a breaking point. This is where you will have no choice but to change your character, appearance, behavior, actions and reactions, and how you see yourself. Somehow, when you become emotionally attached to something or someone, not only do you attach yourself physically but you attach yourself emotionally – just like the caterpillar. If your environment, or the people around you, are not healthy for you and disturb your serenity it will cause you illness, the intensity of which is not yet determined. Your attachment to toxic people will highly influence the level of intensity. The issues will arise when the decision to continue allowing the rain beat you down so that you never turn into a butterfly or move away to dry land, will be forced upon you. As stated earlier this is the first step; deciding to let go of the old and allowing the new to enter. This is not going to be easy as deep down inside you’d rather not be hurt. However, you do have six months to start planning how to do it gently with love and kindness so you don’t leave negative karma behind or create drama. The choice is yours, either way you must let go of something.

Taurus: You have been beating your head against the wall to have a person, rather than success, fill your void. You know the old saying, be careful what you pray for because you just may get it. First, the universe is asking you to devote constructive energy to thrust forward and be the shining star in your career or business. Second, you will have to balance your personal life with your business duties and accountability. You can no longer playing the victim as they will be connected. If one crashes the other definitely will. It is high time that philosophies, religious activities, and studies be an important part of your life. No longer should these things be on an as needed basis, they should be a mandatory aspect to your life as they will be a threshold to your maturity and wishes being granted.

Leo: There is a part of you that really wants a big makeover. It may become imperative that you want people to see you in a completely different way – whether it is the way you dress or the way you carry yourself. This may have a positive effect on your relationships as the universe has already blessed you with Jupiter and if you are in a positive, supportive relationship it will be blessed with glory. You may now do what you can to maintain good citizenship in reaching your goals.

Scorpio: As if Saturn is not already beating on you… Almost always, Saturn focuses on family matters. This eclipse will also be focusing on family matters, but this time around you may have to play the psychologist. Patience will be paramount as family and children are erratic, sometimes making you think that they are speaking an ancient alien language. It seems to be unclear what they want. Any deliberation on financial issues should be completed this year but be sure to do it between the end of October and the end of November.


Mutable Signs

Pisces, Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius

Every three to four times a year Mercury retrograde always comes to knock on mutable signs’ door and disturbs you – once again they are disturbing your peace. By association the Pisces eclipse is affecting everyone. It began on March 20, 2015, there will be another at the end of September 2016, and it will end with a grand finale in February 2017. Thus, everyone is affected. While Sagittarius had a bad rap for a while, now Western Astrology states they are under the influence of Saturn to reform and mature, whereas Vedic ideology is forcing them to be home schooled, at least until January 2017 while it beats Scorpio with Saturn just a little longer. By the same token, next to Taurus, I feel Virgos are #2 as worry warts; therefore, the gift of Jupiter is just the thing that makes them happy according to Western astrology. However, Western astrology wants to take that away soon while Vedic mathematical inferences calculate that it will be entering in September of 2016. Whatever the case may be, this eclipse will be a complex change for mutable signs from the retrograde, Saturn, and the eclipses.

Pisces: You have been going through your share of spiritual development in the last few eclipses.
The universe is blessing you now by clearing up any aliments you may have which are under the care of a physician. While you may not have all ailments completely cured, there is light at the end of the tunnel. It is high time now to thank the universe for the blessings you have received and any selflessly given contributions will be gifted generously as long as they are done without expectation. You will be blessed as you are inclined to reach a higher spiritual purpose.

Gemini: It is a known fact that you constantly change your mind. When your left brain says something, your right brain fights. Nevertheless, have you ever heard the concept of curiosity killed the cat? If you decide to take a last minute journey, or just want to get away which you may during the next six months, try to do this while Mercury is not retrograding because you and retrograde are not the best of friends. It may be wise instead to go back to school. Religion has always boosted you and it will again during this time. You may grow your interpretations and philosophies, or you may simply make modifications.

Virgo: This year has been a roller coaster from hell for you. But, come on, it could have been worse. I can almost hear you say but…all I can say is Appreciate, don’t Depreciate! The universe also slows you down for a reason. It gives those sane people whose brains don’t work 5 thousand miles per hour a break from the tick tack of yours. Remember, after this eclipse you will be affected by two more so this is not over. The combination of all four events will make you whole. Sometimes owning your own business, or being in power, is not always a good thing. Subordinates like people working with them and if you are in business for yourself, people may leave. There is a greater chance you will become very melodramatic allowing your adversaries to take an advantage of you. Work hard and show the world what you are made of. Break bad habits during this time and you will succeed. This is time to take a hard look at what projects you want to take on.

Sagittarius: Life is 90% attitude 5% gratitude and 5% solitude. Don’t impose things on others. If you are ready to make a big purchase you may decide to make that purchase during this eclipse. But remember, don’t sign that dotted line until after the middle of October. In the back of your mind there may be something creative you want to do but you may have your doubts if you can do it; either that or you lack the ability or the confidence. However, going to school or educating yourself may be good to get your Sagittarius juices flowing. It’s time to open up channels of communication with people – you have been hiding in your cave for way too long. Venture out, travel, and see the world. You will see how much you will benefit.


Cardinal Signs

Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra

Not much has been beating cardinal signs yet. Capricorns should be enjoying the gifts as Western Astrology attributes to Jupiter, however, Vedic methods will say your gift is in the fall. Capricorns began the year with Mercury retrograde in earth signs, now retrograde in Virgo will affect you and at the end of the year you will finish with a bang. But don’t get cozy as both of eclipses in September will transform you one way or the other. Aries’ have felt the burn of Saturn by association through job and family changes. Perhaps Cancer and Libra has been touched by the Pisces eclipse due to their placements they are just in a rest period as their eclipses will also change their world in 2018. So enjoy it while you can.

Capricorn: I can say you also worry. Although you don’t show it as much, your detachment does. Perhaps you may even detach further this eclipse as your mind will be glued to your budget. It may be time to save, however you might want to do it quickly. Be careful though, as tricky investments will lead you to losses this year. Now is the time to learn more about how to invest your money, clearing debts, and fixing your credit. But don’t get too comfortable as the next eclipse will have another task for you.

Cancer: You are just basking in the sun and gloating while everyone is miserable huh? This time you might decide to change your personality, clothes, hair, or the way you dress. There is a good possibility that you will be budget oriented. Relationships will be love affairs only seen in the movies. Legal issues are finally ending in your favor and remember to thank the universe for all these gifts and blessings. But I can’t say much about the next two eclipses.

Libra: I can see it now; you must be sitting by the poolside sipping Margaretta’s and gloating because of how easily you went through this last year. Now you’re ready to put on your sporty hat and be social, flirt, build rapport with business partners and associates, and build your contact list. Before you know it your black book is blue, red, purple, and all kinds of colors. But being this social has its price; it could mean that if a relationship is not stable now it will be really tested and end with a new one potentially beginning. Creativity can be high and success in every project is predictable. Enjoy this ride.

Aries: You may have been worried about your job or finances in the past and you should be as you had been warned not to take it easy last eclipse. Some sensitive matters connected to families and acquaintances might arise to the forefront. It’s now a period to renovate yourself by inaugurating different set of contacts with scholarly individuals. By doing so you will find that not only your profession may get an enhancement but you may even receive monetary recompenses in your career or financial boost

The Aquarius eclipse signifies the Harvest Moon, a time for festivity and joy; emotions are robust and of a content and lighthearted nature. There no need for a party to nurture spirits, as this is an ordinary time of broad well being and shared co-operation. The influence of emotional energy can be useful if directed into imaginative activities and self-healing, but often there is a robust craving to merely gaffe into diversion. It is better to coddle in constructive pursuits rather than return to more damaging or distracting action. Miserable predispositions can easily control under this Full Moon. The power of this Full Moon can be particularly problematic or perplexing for those who were born under a Full Moon PHASE, as well as for those of the mutable Sun Signs: Virgo, Gemini and Sagittarius.

During August, in the Northern Hemisphere, is is also a time to harvest crops and lay down groundwork for the upcoming winter. The corn is green and grain almost ready, therefore naming it Green Corn Moon or Grain moon. While Wolves are howling from hunger in the Southern Hemisphere the rain and storms cover the ground. Thus the Southerners name it Storm, Hunger, and sometimes a Wolf moon.

The effect of this FULL MOON can be exclusively problematic or thought-provoking for those who were born under a FULL MOON PHASE, as well as for those of the fixed Sun Signs [Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus]. Also, for those whose birth Moon is in Aquarius this Full Moon can infrequently characterize a precarious period of possible misfortunes, damages, negligence and the activity of impulsive judgments or findings. Throughout this remarkable time of the glowing lunar eclipse and amazing full moon, realizing goals is our first significance.

Separate automatically and completely from outer title roles, doubts, and small pursuits; rather, plunge into the ocean of graceful saturating wholly being. Like a particle of powder that melts in the huge ocean, discharge single individuality into the endless encirclement of heavenly awareness. Inhale in grace and breathe out dark. Touch the cells of your body and convert them to brilliant and glowing with the penetrating radiance of the universe.

Let the substantial encumbrances of the earlier months fall away. Sway like a light being and an angel of the paradises in the melodious depths of ecstasy and harmony. I strongly suggest every single note you may have taken for your past readings be destroyed as Lunar eclipses encourage us to start fresh by destroying bad karma and making new.

During the Lunar Eclipse we must force ourselves to observe life in a changed characteristic. It is recommended to scribe aspirations to:” I require support in forming anything I envision and control to manifest bliss completely during this time. I require the wisdom to understand love and have the ability to engage in a positive environment of my choice. I require clear comprehension of my goals and the path I should be on.”

Since the moon in Aquarius represents Disobedient, Harsh, Lucid, Sociable, and Impulsive, it is my suggestion for us to remain stable. This full moon is astonishing to many signs. Though the lunar eclipse cannot be seen by the human eye it will be felt through depths of many people. It is also the beginning of the Aquarius series.

It is my suggestion that you purchase two candles, orange and orchid, and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candles with orange oil and orchid oil respectively, and chant the Psalm 51.

You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next eclipse in Aquarius which begins with the next spring moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the preferred result is dependent upon the value 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. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Lunar Eclipse is:

Om Chandraya Namaha

(om Chan draya na ma ha )

For proper pronunciation and the number of times one should recite you look at the YouTube video here

Aquarius moon is:

Om Praang Preeng Proung Sah Shaneshchray Namah

(Om P rang Pri ing Pro Ong she shan sh ch ray Na ma ha)

The beautiful 108 recite of the full audio can be found here

This Siddha mantra uses the universal elements that govern each charka: Earth, Water, Fire, and Air.

The intention of this mantra is to keep us in balance and from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy.

Lunar Eclipse brings many changes; I will be doing 6-month in-depth readings instead of my normal 3-month reading. Remember that we can manifest whatever that we want. Let’s look together at what you want to change so the transition to the solar eclipse can be smooth sailing.

I recommend all those that will be affected by this eclipse take a spiritual bath within hours of the full moon, and the eclipse as well, and to properly dispose of their prior notes.

Spiritual bath recipe, proper disposal of the notes and my schedule will be available to my clients in a few days stay tuned for your personal emails.
