My Eclipse Diary 2018


I thought I would try to keep track of what the effect of the eclipses are on my chart.

2018

We have a Lunar Eclipse followed by a Solar Eclipse



  
Jan 31, 2018 - July 1, 2018
Lunar Eclipse at 11 Leo in my 8th house
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse my 8th house
January, February, March, April, May, June

Now until July: "Eclipses in the eighth house are intense, and bring on soul-searching. Some might become aware of the heavy energetic price of debt or toxic entanglements. A catharsis might be due in order to summon emotional courage and transform your darkest fears into productive action. Being close to death is a possibility, with all the reflection the ultimate life passage brings. Other possibilities are banishing intensity around sex, meeting your or another person's dark side, or leaving a controlling situation. Overall, eclipses in the second and eighth house involve developing or squandering natural talents, realizing your values, selling your soul, fertility, and death."

"Eighth House keywords: your attitude toward transformation, sexual intimacy, psychological transparency and honesty, intimate bonding, other people’s money and resources, death

 Here’s how it might play out: 
 -A dear friend commits suicide, leaving you with many questions and even more chaos in your soul where you experience a ‘dark night’. You question the value of a single life and wonder who will remember you when you’re gone. Your vulnerable questioning temporarily isolates you then makes you tender, forging deeper bonds to the temporary nature of life, to the people you love. -You reconnect with an old lover and end up sleeping together. You feel terrible about yourself in the morning, experiencing the old familiar sexual hangover yet again -a feeling of diminished self-worth. You’ve given away your pearls to swine and today you call your self on it. You begin to address the deeper issues behind your patterns of sexual intimacy. -You aren’t feeling fairly compensated for your craft. You’re selling your work at far below market value. A friend asks whether you even value your own gifts and talents. You start to do spiritual work on scarcity, and discover a new sense of spiritual security arising in you. Because you did the spiritual-magical work, when you raise your rates people are happy to pay them. -Your partner financially supports you which the eventuality you’d find your direction, find a job and start contributing to the household income. That day hasn’t come. You wonder if money is a measure of worth. You see the gifts you bring — like being a supportive partner and parent, which can’t be measured in dollars. You realize your self-worth is not dependent on money. -You loan money to a cousin who just lost a job. She promises to repay you, but doesn’t. You wrestle with your emotions, realising animosity will cost you this dear relationship. You forgive her. You’re learning lessons around spiritual generosity."

"Lunar Eclipse in 8th house: An excellent period for matters involving material goods. It tends to be a transformative period involving sex, death, and/or taxes. Sex does not necessarily mean “the act” but could involve sexual organs or an awareness of a sexual concept. Death also does not necessarily mean “literal death” but could involve the death of an outdated idea or situation so that you can begin anew. Taxes, on the other hand, mean taxes and tax debt. No pseudonym for that one."

2/3/18: Right now, we are looking for apartments and planning to move from the Columbia River Gorge area in to Portland.  Greg lost his job, so we are relying on savings from inheritance, his severance and his unemployment. I am taking a job in Tualatin* and we are hoping he will get a job in Portland somewhere. This is a lot about changes in my partner's finances.  *Gladstone

"Death" of my years of living in the Columbia River Gorge...



Yeserday (2/14/18) there was another school shooting, this time in Florida. :(



2/15/18: Today, I am very, very tired. I have two weeks left in my private practice.  All my clients know now. I am weary.  It feels like it is all happening so fast ... and so slow.  I had coffee this morning with someone who also works where I will be working. She commented that I am organized enough to make sure I make money.  Now Greg just needs to get a job.  He is interviewing right now for one... that he doesn't want, but goes to EXPO soon where he will network.

Feb 15, 2018 -  July 15, 2018
Solar Eclipse at 27 Aquarius in my 2nd house 

My 2nd house


February, March, April, May, June, July


Mid February to July: "An eclipse in the second house hits on material realities -- money, what you own or owe, what you've built (symbolically) with your own two hands. A crisis here could shake you at your base. Perhaps your finances and possessions that you see as what makes you, you are destabilized. It could set off an ordeal, where you're tested to stick with a soul's calling through hardships. There can be inner wrestling with how much to invest, and what's most important to achieve."

"Second House keywords: money, talents/gifts/skills/resources you have that can support you, movable possessions, resources, where you derive your security, your ability to survive and feel safe in the world"

"Solar in Second House: The focus is on financial perspectives. The ego drives one to seek financial and material status. Excessive ego may prompt a person's attempt to increase income by expanding resources while another person may try to amass assets for savings or other security means. Acquiring large debts while purchasing material objects can satisfy the ego; or displays of financial generosity might give another person a sense of pride. The results of the Solar Eclipse period within the second house might range from proportional prosperity to economic ruin. However, security and growth is not merely financial activity; the focus deals with the development of material values and obligatory attitudes that promote inner growth as well as material and psychological security."

We have a Solar Eclipse followed by a Lunar Eclipse, and then another Solar Eclipse (which is unusual)

7:48 PM New Moon Partial SOLAR Eclipse 20 Cancer 41



July 12, 2018 - Jan 12, 2019
Solar Eclipse at 20 Cancer in my 7th house

My 7th house


July, August, September, October, November, December

"Eclipses in the seventh house also affect relationships that weigh heavily on the self. There can be upheavals in these big relationships, ranging from emotional shocks, deepening intimacy, or breaking up. A relationship can be wholly absorbing until you realize you've lost your own defining edges. Some might awaken to the naked truth about what's been lost or gained by being in cahoots with a close friend, lover, or business associate. Who am I in this relationship? Who will I become?"


"Seventh House keywords: partnerships, marriage, friendships, counselors, open enemies, contracts, shadow projection onto others 


 Here’s how it might play out: 
 -You’ve lost weight. You’ve grown in spiritual mastery. But you still see yourself as that chubby overweight kid, or, likewise the perpetual student who knows nothing. Now is the time to steep in the awareness of just how much you’ve changed. Play with your new identity, try it on. Then be a boss, own it. -You’ve decided to pursue a career as an artist and you feel your straight-laced clothes may be giving off the wrong impression to people you meet. You change your appearance and begin dressing like an artist (because you are one) to more fully embody an identity. This throws your accountant boyfriend into a tailspin while simultaneously drawing new arts-y folks into your orbit. -You have the shocking realization that your self-image, and your friends, are completely tied into your partnership. You make this harrowing discovery when your lover leaves and you no longer recognize your self. -You unconsciously see your self as an eternal bachelor or bachelorette. You discover this when you meet someone you want to spend more time with and they challenge your footloose self-image by asking you to settle down. –You’re in a stable partnership and your partner develops new interests outside of the home. Now you have more time on your hands. This free time stimulates you to ‘do something’. Suddenly you’re off and running in a new direction of self-discovery."


"Solar Eclipse in 7th house: The focus is on one to one human interaction at a personal level and a business level. A sense of incompleteness encourages individuals to seek an equivalent in order to enhance self-esteem. The meaningful alliances are generally expressed as marital or business partnerships. The Solar Eclipse in the seventh house strengthens relationships that are solid and satisfying while disbanding relationships that are unbalanced or unrewarding. Harmony and balance are important to emotional growth. Self-worth can be realized through one's ability to assist another person to meet his/her needs."

1:20 PM Full Moon Total LUNAR Eclipse 4 Aquarius 45




July 27, 2018 -  Jan 27, 2019
Lunar Eclipse at 27 Aquarius in my 2nd house 

Again my 2nd house



July, August, September, October, November, December


 
July to next January: "An eclipse in the second house hits on material realities -- money, what you own or owe, what you've built (symbolically) with your own two hands. A crisis here could shake you at your base. Perhaps your finances and possessions that you see as what makes you, you are destabilized. It could set off an ordeal, where you're tested to stick with a soul's calling through hardships. There can be inner wrestling with how much to invest, and what's most important to achieve."

"Second House keywords: money, talents/gifts/skills/resources you have that can support you, movable possessions, resources, where you derive your security, your ability to survive and feel safe in the world"

"Lunar Eclipse in 2nd house: Discovering a need to receive something from someone else. A sense of self-security may be an issue highlighted at this time. Values based on self-worth and how that relates to others as the most basic level might become an issue. Your code of ethics – the rules that govern your sense of right and wrong – may be questioned or validated by others."


7/27/18: Things are horrible.  Greg had a stroke like event and spent two nights in the hospital this past weekend. He has tried to drive for Uber/Lift but he has not been able to find any jobs and then has experienced cognitive decline. So we are now living on my income alone, which isn't great.  I also have been feeling horrible about myself, in a job that is below my years of experience.  I also feel paranoid that no one likes me or cares about me, which is not something I had felt professionally for years and years.  I was a big fish in a small pond - and now I am a small fish in a big pond.  I'm algae.

3:58 AM New Moon Partial SOLAR Eclipse 18 Leo 42



August 11, 2018 -  Feb 11, 2019
Solar Eclipse at 18 Leo in my 8th house 
"A Solar Eclipse occurs on August 11th at 5:58 AM EDT at 18 degrees and 42 minutes of the sign of Leo. Its effects can be felt up to six months after the actual date of the eclipse. In the Sun-ruled sign of Leo, confidence, creativity, romance and dating, games, sports, recreation, speculation, hobbies, or children are a strong focus. This eclipse might challenge these matters and present opportunities for new beginnings in these areas of life.

Flaws in an important system in our lives are revealed around the time of the eclipse, prompting us to redo or to start fresh. We may find ourselves completely re-working this area of life. Something ends in order for something else to start anew. We may be called to give up something in order to move forward into a new chapter in our lives. Although the “new” may be unrecognizable, it is important to allow the necessary surrender to the unknown.

This is a time for concentrating on building our self-confidence by discovering our paths as distinct individuals, and expressing ourselves confidently, or letting go of limiting attitudes that prevent us from pursuing this path. We might find opportunities to uncover or rediscover our unique creative powers. We might consider putting effort into our relationships by becoming more personal, demonstrative, and involved rather than detached or technical in our approach. We may begin a new romance, start fresh in our dating lives, or renew a commitment to a current relationship. Same goes for a hobby, leisure time, games, and entertainment. We might also consider ways to add more leisure or play time to our lives.

This eclipse is conjunct retrograde Mercury and forms a square with Jupiter. We’re inspired, poised to solve problems confidently and with authority, and filled with good intentions. It’s a good time to develop warmer communication skills, and it’s an excellent cycle for infusing our romantic lives with fun, good-spirited energy. We may want to take a wait-and-see approach to new launches, however, with Mercury retrograde until the 19th and Mars retrograde in Leo’s opposite sign, Aquarius, until the 27th. As well, there is a strong tendency to exaggeration and blowing matters out of proportion.

However, we’re learning to take more pride in ourselves as unique individuals, to give ourselves warmly and generously to others, and to assume more responsibility for our lives.

We may find ourselves completely re-working the area of life ruled by Leo in our charts.

With this eclipse, we might experience a strong urge to act on impulse. However, it will be important to avoid jumping to conclusions and asserting ourselves without considering others’ feelings and reactions. There is a big difference between asserting ourselves from a place of healthy confidence and asserting ourselves brashly and blindly, designed to give us a false sense of confidence or bravery. We should also watch for cockiness and excessive pride interfering with our progress now. Taking the high road is absolutely critical for success now.

With this potent Leo energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle. For some of us, circumstances are such that we need to pay more attention to these matters. Nagging problems from recent months need to be dealt with and put behind us.

An eclipse occurs close to the nodal axis, and this eclipse is close to the North Node of the Moon in Leo. Eclipses close to the North Node tend to feel a little less challenging than those conjunct or closer to the South Node, as we are focusing less on what we’re leaving behind and more on where we’re heading."

   Again my 8th house



August, September, October, November, December, January



 
August to next February:  "Eclipses in the eighth house are intense, and bring on soul-searching. Some might become aware of the heavy energetic price of debt or toxic entanglements. A catharsis might be due in order to summon emotional courage and transform your darkest fears into productive action. Being close to death is a possibility, with all the reflection the ultimate life passage brings.

Overall, eclipses in the second and eighth house involve developing or squandering natural talents, realizing your values, selling your soul, fertility, and death."



"Eighth House keywords: your attitude toward transformation, sexual intimacy, psychological transparency and honesty, intimate bonding, other people’s money and resources, death

"Solar Eclipse in 8th house: The focus is on sharing material, physical, and/or inner spheres. Activation of the material assets that may be shared with the marriage partner or business associates. Activation of the physical sensory may arouse aggressive sexual urges. The psychological or inner response accentuates spiritual evolution and psychic development. The individual's motivation may depend upon his/her own level of growth attained to this stage of life. "

Astro.com Short Report Forecast


You can do a short report forecast at astro.com

Neptune square Moon: Mirages
Mid-May 2016 until mid-December 2018: Under this influence you may have to contend with rather strange moods and feelings. You may feel that your hunches are extremely accurate, but be careful - the language of your unconscious mind, which is speaking rather strongly to you now, is very different from the language of the conscious mind. Your hunches may mislead you.
At the same time, you are more subject to outside influences now. If you are around an angry person or someone under the influence of any other intense feeling, you will feel their energy strongly. For this reason, you should avoid people who are under the influence of strong negative emotions. Your empathy is so great that you will easily become subject to their feelings. And avoid anyone who tries to control your thinking through subtle suggestions and hints, which is very likely to happen, because the thoughts they instill will seem to come from within you - another good reason for avoiding negative people.
There may be other problems in your home or personal life or with emotional relationships. It is extremely important that you try to communicate with those around you as clearly as possible. Misunderstandings are rife under this influence. You may begin a love relationship that is hopelessly unrealistic and yet very fascinating.
Moods and emotions may appear and disappear with great speed. Do not take them too seriously or get too wrapped up in contemplating them, for you will only make mountains out of molehills. Even when you are disappointed about something, do not dwell on it. Your own negative emotions can be very destructive.

Transit Neptune Square Moon
Your emotions are confusing during this time, as you fall under a spell of idealism, romance and compassion. This will often affect your home, family or personal relationships, but may also involve the more material aspects of your life such as work or finances. You’re strongly affected by strange moods and confusion as you attempt to follow a more spiritual path, but this idealistic spell makes you less discriminating and realistic and you may get drawn into situations that are deceptive. You may also deceive yourself and go against what your rational mind is telling you. You have more difficulty when handling the material aspects of your life, which may cause a loss of money or endanger the security of your home and property. You’ll confront your illusions about other people and whether or not they fulfill your emotional needs, and partnerships are more frustrating now as you constantly question their value. You may discover that relationships are built on your expectations rather than an honest assessment of their worth. Solid partnerships will survive this re-evaluation, but unrealistic ones will likely end; you should wait until this cycle completes before making any firm commitments. Be more attentive to problems at home such as deception or chaos involving the issues of home, and should be especially careful about water problems - check your plumbing for leaks. You may engage in escapist behavior such as drinking or doing drugs, but your body is much more sensitive and you should be careful when taking in any foreign matter, even prescription drugs. Also watch digestive problems and food poisoning.
 
to top
Jupiter conjunction Neptune: A sense of compassion Beginning of January 2018 until mid-September 2018: During this time your ideals will be aroused as they seldom are at other times, and you will approach life with a greater sense of compassion. People who cannot help themselves will win your sympathy especially, whether you encounter them personally or through working with others in a charitable enterprise. Your primary concern is to help individuals by giving them a hand. You may be less concerned with transforming the social order that has given rise to the conditions that oppress the people you are dealing with.
Your interest in spiritual, religious and mystical philosophy is likely to grow at this time, and you may become involved in a group that is studying these subjects. This world no longer seems to meet your needs adequately, so you have to turn inward to find a world that can give you what you really need. Here, too, you will discover that the ego's drives for self-gratification and self-assertion may be the major factors in preventing you from getting what you want out of life. At this time the demands of the ego must be quieted at least a little, so you can hear what the inner self is really saying.
Unfortunately there is another side to this influence, which you should watch for. Some people develop a feeling of false happiness, like living in the dream world of an opium smoker, with no basis in reality. You may feel that everything is all right when it is not, or you may feel that you can do anything you want and get away with it. That is why this influence is often associated with gambling or taking risks with limited resources, often with disastrous results. This is not a very good time for investments, not because you will necessarily lose out, but because you just won't know for sure, and you will be tempted to gamble even when it is a poor risk. For the same reason, in business deals be sure you are not the victim of a massive misrepresentation.
With this influence it is best to avoid purely selfish concerns, for when your actions are thus motivated you are most likely to encounter its negative side.

Saturn sextile Sun: Recognition Mid-January 2018 until beginning of November 2018: This influence will present many opportunities for achievement. At this time you will be able to strengthen many areas of your life so that they can withstand adversity later. But you have to take control of this moment. Nothing will be given to you without some effort on your part. You will have to exercise considerable care and responsibility and pay attention to what others require of you and the commitments you have made to them. This is not a "lucky" influence in the ordinary sense of the word, but it can be exceedingly fortunate for you, if you work hard to make it so.
Recognition by others, particularly persons in authority over you, may come now. At this time you have more patience and perseverance than usual. You are able to work in a disciplined and careful manner and make your work enduring. This is an excellent time to tackle difficult and demanding projects. Even your health is better than usual, but that does not mean that you should abuse it. Instead, you should be building up your strength. In the not-too-distant future you will need your good health, so don't waste it now. This is a time of successful preparation for climaxes and periods of crisis to come. How well you are able to deal with the future depends largely upon what you do now.

Jupiter conjunction Mercury: Foresight Beginning of February 2018 until beginning of October 2018: At this time you are able to combine breadth of vision with sharp perception and intellect, knowledge of the particular with knowledge of the general, and thereby see the whole scope of anything you are involved in. This reveals itself as foresight and long-range planning ability. This is a good time to map out your future, because you can understand and interrelate all the elements that will affect your life.
At the same time, you feel optimistic and proceed with the belief that everything will come out exactly as you want it to. And it probably will, because you don't get completely carried away with grandiose thinking. This influence usually indicates a good balance between details and generality in your thinking, but there is also a tendency to deemphasize the details and not pay adequate attention to them. If you are not careful, this can result in sloppy or hasty thinking. Be sure to slow down somewhat and do not get carried away with your plans. Otherwise, this is an excellent time to make decisions or to conclude any kind of transaction. It is a superb time to buy or sell, because you will almost certainly be satisfied with the deal.
As your mind tries to expand, you will want to learn more and more. This is a good time for returning to school, but even on a less formal level you will be anxious to learn. You may even travel long distances with this aim in mind. Any dealings with the law should prove to be quite fortunate for you now. You will prepare for such a confrontation skillfully, leaving no loose ends to trip you up.
Communications with others are exceedingly fortunate under this influence. Your optimism and positive state of mind bring you good news from others concerning matters of importance. At the same time, everything that you say to others is very positive and reinforcing, which leaves good feelings behind you wherever you go.


Neptune square Ascendant: Ego losses End of May 2018 until mid-December 2020: At this time in your life your relationships with others are likely to become confused and difficult. You may encounter persons who try to dissuade you from a course of action that you have been committed to for years, with the result that you become confused about the direction of your life. The other person's intentions in this may be either good or bad.
This is not a good time to become involved in any kind of contractual or business negotiations. Even if the people whom you are dealing with are completely honest - and with this influence they may very well be dishonest - you will find it difficult to think clearly about your own goals and objectives in the negotiations. As a result you will not get what you want from the procedure.
On the metaphysical plane there is a lesson to be learned from this influence. The less involved your ego is in a situation, the more freedom you will have to do what you want. By bringing about a loss, this influence often shows us that our attachment to material objects or to certain personal relationships has prevented us from being free. So it is not usually the influence itself that causes losses or confusion, but your ego's relentless drive to maintain the game it is playing. And this may be happening at your expense, when viewed from a higher perspective. When your ego takes over in this way, you set your priorities incorrectly, and you are not likely to be successful.
The strategy with this influence is to flow through it without any particular set plan of action nor any special objective. Simply treat this time as a learning experience. If a relationship doesn't work out, ask yourself why you got into it in the first place. If you attract dishonest people or if your dishonesty has brought you trouble, ask yourself what purpose this served in your life. Often you will discover that you were trying to protect something that really wasn't worth protecting.

Jupiter square Saturn: Something is wrong From 23 December 2018 until 1 January 2019: During this time you will make many adjustments in your life, separating yourself from persons or circumstances that are doing you no good. You will change many standards of behavior and morality that you realize are inappropriate and generally realign your conception of duty and responsibility more in accordance with reality. In the process you may experience a considerable amount of tension, and for a time you may be confused, not quite knowing whether to go backward or forward, to expand or cut back.
Probably you would be well advised to go off by yourself for a while, because other people's advice will be of little value, unless you select your advisors with great care. The challenge here is to increase and go forward in some areas but to cut back in others. You will not be able to keep everything going, no matter how much you want to. Unfortunately there is no way of telling in advance which areas of your life will be affected.
Under this influence there is often a strong feeling of restlessness and uncertainty. You know clearly that something is wrong, but you are not sure what it is. The best way to deal with this is not to be in a hurry. Usually you will have all the time you need to make a decision based on careful observation of the facts, so don't rush.
In business and professional matters, this is a critical time, but not necessarily a bad one. It simply means that whatever you do now will have a more important effect than usual on the future. It is possible that you will change jobs during this time, because a new offer gives you more opportunities to get ahead than your old job. In that case, take it, because such changes are often beneficial with this influence. In general you should take any opportunity that comes along now to broaden your scope and release yourself from limitations that have held you back. The trick is to do this in a way that is not destructively disruptive.

My cusp: 21 Capricorn
Pluto is sitting on the cusp in my chart or retrograding most of this year.

Pluto Transiting your 2nd house
"This transit will tranform your belief system around money and it's power. As with all transits his can be both positive or negatively expressed. I find the transits tend to function in phases and with the outer planets such as Pluto, then tend to happen over a longer period of time so often aren't blatanly obvious initally but some can be. Initially when Pluto hit's this house, you might find yourself seduced by money and all it's glory. Some during this transit might find themselves surrounded by those with lot's of money, or people with powerful personalities often with opportunities. You may also initially decide to get your first tatoo, under Pluto's influence in your house of values your tastes can change along with what you value, want or find attractive. You may have some very sensual times ahead romantically. However, negatively you might incur many dramatic situations surrounding money and power. You can also find yourself in powerstruggles with others over money. You will be introduced to money and the power of it, but will also be tested on just what it is you are willing to tolerate, or what part of your freedom, and even soul in order to have it. These come across in situations as love relationships of all kinds, love, family, work, friends. In order to not have the negative happen one will need to be conscious of their core values but also willing to walk away for the sake of sanity from those unhealthy attachements. We learn what financial attachements to others can bring negatively. It's said Pluto types seem to show and this means, sexy, powerful wealthy people, with control issues. Which can bring about dramatic and even painful situations. It's very important that you are careful with whom you choose to get involved with financially at this time. The 2nd house is the house of Taurus- who's motto is- I have. What this transit can do positively is that it can bring about a stronger self worth, aquistion and more control of one's own life and financial affairs. However, if you are not careful you can end up with the imfamous Pluto destruction or loss. This usually occurs if you are not careful about the attachements you have to others. You will not want to give your power away and may be put into some shadowy situations to test this. As Saturn will slow down the income here initially, Pluto can increase it dramatically along with your ego surrounding it. You may become obsessed with money, you need to becareful though because if you use unethical tactics, or sell yourself short and sell out, you will not only be accountable and may experience loss, but if you sell out, you will have much regret later but a lesson will be learned. Pluto is that planet we know appeals to our earthly desires, those of wealth and power and all the shameful qualities attached. Our secrets and things we wish to keep hidden. We can feel more secretive during a Pluto transit, because we become more inticed by things that we might have not realized until now. Sometimes if the person was not previously strong in self-worth, than their transformation might be that they suddenly feel they deserve more and aren't afraid to ask for what theyre worth. This is in area of business and money but also in areas of relationships and things all Venus such as luxury, sensuality, art, music and even sex since it's all things that bring us pleasure and even glamor. We may feel sexier, more passionate about our desires and more willing to not only pursue them and even demand them. However, it's important to be conscious of the influence inorder to best manage it positively and avoid many of the conflicts or shady situations that this transit can bring about. This transit in short will bring about a transformation in what you value, your self value, and what you need to have to be happy but also what you are willing to do for it. It's best approaching all matters with intuition, logic and balance and realize their is no real urgency which is difficult to do under this transit. Later in the transit you will rebuild any loss, you will have a newfound self worth, and you understand the value of money and the freedom it allows. It's a energy that can be used for good or bad. It can hurt us or help us, it's all in how much power we give it. But also how we use it."
