Full Moon (Almost Lunar Eclipse) in Aquarius: Future Echoes

Full Moon (Almost Lunar Eclipse) in Aquarius: Future Echoes

We have a full moon in Aquarius that’s an ‘almost’ lunar eclipse on August 18th at 10:26am British summer time. This full moon brings Future Echoes - that is, it gives you a taste of a bigger trend that’s yet to unfold in 2017 and 2018 so watch this space!

What on earth is this ‘almost’ business about? Apparently, NASA first noted this full moon as a penumbral lunar eclipse (when the earth’s outer shadow passes over the moon) but then removed it from the list because the earth’s shadow barely grazes the moon’s rim. This fails to satisfy NASA’s definition of what it means to have a lunar eclipse - although apparently some websites still list it as such.

Still, this ‘almost’ eclipse hullabaloo cannot fail to draw astrologers’ interest. Maybe nothing earth-shattering will happen. Nonetheless, August 18th draws your attention to the areas of your horoscope that the eclipses are moving into and rather soonish - if not now - in six month’s time! This month may not bring the supercharged series of events that an eclipse would, but it will give you a glimpse into an area of your life that's about to undergo major changes! Future Echoes, as we like to call them (remember Red Dwarf?). Read all about the 2016 eclipses to get a sense of the major transition that you’re in this year, as the eclipses move across a large part of your horoscope. 

Eclipse or no, a full moon is still a time of heightened emotion. Something in your life is about to become very clear by August 18th making way for a new approach. Just see what culminates for you this August and take note!

This ‘almost’ eclipse full moon is at 25 Aquarius, harmonising with Uranus in Aries. This is a friendly influence bringing liberation, renewal, excitement and surprises! It will jar you most if you have planets or points around 25 degrees of the fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius. If, on the other hand, you have planets or points around 25 degrees Aries, Gemini, Sagittarius or Libra, you can expect a refreshing change of pace.
