Eclipses Summer 2018

Eclipses Summer 2018

The Summer 2018 eclipses will soon be upon us so here’s a heads up ahead of time! Is something holding you back? Perhaps a past love? A lost opportunity? A dream unfulfilled? The next eight weeks promise closure and a fresh start. This is the perfect summer to finally get past whatever seemed stuck, intractable, getting you down and blocking your way forward. It’s time to go back and correct past mistakes, to air grievances and finish that story so that you can move forward. So let's look at the Summer 2018 eclipses more closely.

Lunar and Solar Eclipses July and August 2018

We have not only two (the usual number) but three eclipses this summer, one lunar and two solar! They arrive back to back in July and August of 2018 within the space of five weeks so buckle up, it’s going to be one hell of a ride! Here’s the info:

1. First up we have a New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer on 13 July 2018 at 21 degrees. Cancer is the ‘mother’ sign. It rules your sense of belonging to a home, tribe, family or land. It's where you find sanctuary and the eclipse activates an area of your life that has not seen much action for a while. Is it your relationships? Your career? Read on to find out! This eclipse is exactly opposite Pluto so expect stark contrasts. Two grand trines in earth and water make this an emotional, imaginative yet practical fresh start.

2. Second, we have the most dramatic eclipse of all - a Blood Moon Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on 27 July 2018 at 5 degrees. Aquarius is the ‘community’ sign. It symbolises groups, ideals and collaborative movements. This eclipse brings a big change! It signifies a major turning point, a fiery line in the sand. This is one angry, red hot, rebellious lunar eclipse! It's not only blood-red in colour, it's also conjunct red planet Mars, currently bright and retrograde. And it's square rebel Uranus to boot... Expect the unexpected, as old resentments and hostilities erupt without warning!

3. The third eclipse of the summer is a New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Leo at 19 degrees on 11 August 2018. Leo is the ‘father’ sign. It represents leadership, kingship, showmanship and passion. This eclipse brings a fresh start. But it is conjunct Mercury retrograde and square Jupiter so expect drama as you go over old ground in one broad sweep. Things long left unsaid need to come out before you can step into the future.

You're knee-deep in complex international or legal affairs as the summer begins, dear Gemini.

Have you been taking care of yourself lately, dear Virgo? Or have you been eating rubbish, working like crazy and sleeping odd hours? All this comes back to bite you. Treat whatever crops up promptly and use this as an opportunity to uncover deeper, underlying problems, physical or psychological. Repressed anger and resentment could cause you psychosomatic problems now. July could bring major changes at work or the realisation that you need to change your lifestyle if you're going to go the distance. Don’t just carry on regardless. Clear away any poison. Once this is done, take a quiet moment in August to meditate, detox or go over past ground and regain your composure. You’ll soon come out of hiding! This summer opens new doors in your social circle and paves the way for fresh dreams!

This summer allows you to finally turn the page in your love life and look toward a brighter future.
