Because eclipses happen in 18 – 24 month long cycles in pairs of signs, there can be overlap between the the signs as one series ends and the next begins, such as we are experiencing right now.

 

By the Fagan Bradley sidereal zodiac, we are coming to the end of the Cancer-Capricorn series which began February 2017 and will end January 2019, and beginning the Gemini-Sagittarius series, which began July 12, 2018, just two weeks ago, and will end July 4 2020.

How to know if this eclipse season affects you directly

Let’s talk about how to know if these particular eclipses affect you directly.

You’ll need your sidereal natal chart to check the following degrees and signs. We’ll go through each of the July & August 2018 eclipses one at a time.

 

Degrees and dates to check:

 

July 12, 2018 new moon solar eclipse in sidereal Gemini, 25° 41’

 

Check air and fire signs. Look for a planet or point at 25 or 26 degrees of Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Sagittarius, Aries, or Leo. Planets and points within +/- 3 to 5 degrees either side may be considered, although the effect will be greater the closer they are.

 

The July 12 eclipse news may be delivered at the following dates:

8 – 9 May 2018

7 – 9 June 2018

12 July 2018

12 – 13 August 2018

13 – 14 September 2018

 

If you have Gemini sun or rising, or a planet or point at 25 or 26 of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, experiences brought up by this eclipse will be more challenging and bring greater growth and learning potential.

 

The eclipse degree will be reactivated for you at the new moons in July & October 2018 and the new moons in January, April & July 2019.  

 

If you have a planet or personal point at 25 or 26 of Leo, Libra, Aquarius, or Aries, this will likely be a less challenging eclipse for you, but will require conscious effort and action on your part if you wish to use the eclipse energy.

 

The eclipse degree will be reactivated for you at the new moons in September & November 2018 and again at the new moons in March & May 2019.

The eclipse degree will be reactivated for you at the full moons in July & October 2018 and the full moons in January, April & July 2019.

 

If you have a planet or personal point at 9 or 10 of Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, or Scorpio, this will likely be a less challenging eclipse for you, but will require conscious effort and action on your part if you wish to use the eclipse energy.

 

The eclipse degree will be reactivated for you at the full moons in September & November 2018 and again at the full moons in March & May 2019.

August 11 new moon solar eclipse in Cancer 23° 41’

 

Check earth and water signs. Look for a planet or point at 23 or 24 degrees Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces. Again, planets and points within +/- 3 to 5 degrees either side may be considered, although the effect will be  greater the closer they are.

 

The August 11, 2018 eclipse news may be delivered at the following dates:

9 June 2018

10 July 2018

11 August 2018

9 – 11 September 2018

9 – 12 October 2018

 

If you have Cancer sun or rising, or a planet or point at 23 or 24 of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, or Aries, experiences brought up by this eclipse will be more challenging and bring greater growth and learning potential.

 

The eclipse degree will be reactivated for you at the new moons in August & November 2018 and again the new moons in February, May & August 2019.  

 

If you have a planet or personal point at 23 or 24 of Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, or Scorpio, this will likely be a less challenging eclipse for you, but will require conscious effort and action on your part if you wish to use the eclipse energy.

 

The eclipse degree will be reactivated for you at the new moons in October & December 2018 and again at the new moons in April & June 2019.

“It is clearly evident that most events of a widespread nature draw their causes from the enveloping heavens.”

PTOLEMY

Finally, if you have a planet or point within +/- 5 degrees of any of these eclipses, or making a major aspect with an eclipse within +/- 3 degrees, then:

 

Think back to the relevant past dates for that eclipse and see if you recall significant events which occurred near those dates, If nothing notable happened, watch for events to happen near the coming dates for the same eclipse for news.

 

Also, watch the new or full moons noted for the coming twelve months when the relevant eclipse is reactivated, as further developments may come to light.

Shine on,

about me

My astrological explorations began in 1994 and have taken me on an amazing, decades-long journey of discovery beginning with the teachings of Sybil Leek and continuing with those of Joanna Woolfolk, Nicholas Campion, Max Heindel, Ptolemy, Susan Miller, Carol Rushman, Steven Forrest, Cyril Fagan, Robert Powell, and Dane Rudhyar, to name just a few. I began reading privately for family and close friends in 2003 and following a profoundly transformational spiritual experience opened my practice to the public through Mystick Physick in 2014.

 

Now more than ever I see the need in the world for the life and soul guidance that astrology can offer to those who seek to understand its sublime language. Collectively we are waking up and determined to find meaning and purpose in our daily lives. This is the gift that astrology offers us.

 

I’m Phaedra, astrologer and artist of Mystick Physick. I make my home in Idaho’s gorgeous Treasure Valley with my husband of 18 years, our dog Rocket and cat Jet. In my natural habitat I can usually be found meditating, continuing my ongoing astrological explorations, painting to the astrological rhythms of the solar system, or reading about the latest discoveries in the science of consciousness or astrophysics. You can find me at phaedrapaints.com and mystickphysick.com.
