Century’s longest Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

Century’s longest Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018
With Mars conjunct the Moon oppose the Sun
Mercury goes retrograde July 26 at the edge of its boundary

Adding to the excitement on eclipse night … this eclipse will happen on the same night that Earth is passing between the Sun and Mars, placing Mars at opposition in our sky. Mercury goes retrograde the day before at 23 degrees Leo 27 minutes, on the outer edge of its boundaries, making it “on the edge” of being out of bounds.

To read a detailed scientific article complete with diagrams, please go to: The eclipse will be visible in the Eastern Hemisphere. The above article contains a link to viewing it from your computer along with the diagram of visibility,

What does this mean for you? You already know Mars is retrograde. People  are telling me about car and truck accidents because of going in reverse, just like Mars. But what about the eclipse and Mars? For your personal quick explanation, please contact Patty.

Since this is a long full Moon eclipse with Mars joining the party, expect a more-active than usual full-Moon day. The areas of the body for this full Moon are the heart, upper back, calves of the legs, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Mars involves the head and possible violence, at least pushy, demanding behavior from groups or crowds. Watch the news of the Eastern Hemisphere.

The eclipse is in the signs of Leo and Aquarius at 4 degrees, with Mars at 3 degrees Aquarius, conjunct the Moon of the eclipse. If you have 2, 3, 4 or 5 degree planet or point in your chart, it will be activated. How depends upon the signs involved. Mercury went retrograde April 15 2018 at 4 degrees of Aries, so this eclipse may positivily activate those energies. Look to your happenings on April 15 to get an idea of what may be activated.

Leo and Aquarius experience stubborn control issues. Aquarius especially will be energetically trying to push their agenda. The other fixed signs of Taurus and Scorpio experience control situations. Leo is in trine with Aries and Sagittarius, and in sextile with Gemini and Libra, so these signs should have a good day and may help Leo and Aquarius. Leo is quincunx or see saw with Capricorn and Pisces, so they may have a day when things do not go as expected. Aquarius is in quincunx or see-saw with Cancer and Virgo so they may also have an active see-saw day.

Mercury will have gone retrograde the day before at 23 degrees Leo 27 minutes, at the edge of its boundaries and may be more erratic than usual. If you have a 22 or 23 degree planet or point in your chart it will be activated. For those of you who have a retrograde Mercury in your natal chart, expect good things now through Aug 19 when Mercury goes direct. Since Mercury is at the edge of its boundary, it will be more daring and in the sign of Leo more dramatic. Leo may be more demanding, generous or extravagant; Aquarius experiences stubborn opposition, Taurus and Scorpio are frustrated because of controlled delays. Aries and Sagittarius can help Leo be more playful; Gemini and Libra can diplomatically smooth things; Cancer and Virgo are neutral; Capricorn and Pisces adjust to demands;

Enjoy your busy last few days of July, at least it will not be boring!

July 11 through 31 2018

this is late because...

Sorry your predictions are so late. I thought they could be published end of June, but that could not happen. I had a scheduled total hip replacement July 9 with many interruptions the end of June. The spinal anesthesia failed, according to the doctor, making your astrologer one of the 5% of the population to not tolerate it. It took a week for the anesthesia to leave my system so the mind could think and the body to be somewhat normal. Afterward, had many visitors and my sister spent five days with me. Now, 16 days later, am pain free, moving around well and in a normal routine. Following are  your remainder of July predictions:

Mars is still retrograde in Aquarius
New Moon or solar eclipse July 12
Mercury goes retrograde July 26
Full Moon or lunar eclipse July 27
Chiron is at 2 degrees Aries
Uranus is at 2 degrees Taurus
Neptune is  at 16 degrees Pisces
Pluto is at 20 degrees Capricorn

July 11: Moon goes into Cancer. Other planetary relationship indicates harmonious, practical relationships, especially for Virgo and Taurus, followed by Capricorn. Aries, Pisces and Gemini may be irritated by requests for detail; Scorpio may experience stubborn urge to make change from Taurus; Cancer enjoys opportunities for stability and security. Aquarius could be frustrated by the slow pace.

July 12: solar eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer opposite Pluto at 20 degrees Capricorn.  Cancer is energized, possibly appearing bossy. Cancer and Capricorn may have leadership differences which can be helped by Scorpio, Pisces, Taurus and Virgo. Aries and Libra experience a challenging day, too. Scorpio and Pisces enjoy a good emotional and family day; Taurus and Virgo have the opportunity to be included, but need to accept the invitation. Sagittarius and Aquarius adjust to family issues. Gemini and Leo are neutral. Other planetary relationships reveal a day where things do not go as expected for everybody, asking you to be a little flexible and accommodating.

July 13: Moon goes into Leo.

July 14: harmonious situations for practical projects. Virgo and Capricorn may be the lead in this project including Taurus. Again, Aries, Gemini and Pisees are irritated by requests for detail. Cancer could experience relationship focus to balance family and career or practical plans. Libra is in a situation requiring you to be practical and frugal instead of creative. Leo and Aquarius experience stubborn resistance or demands for financial accounting. Scorpio has a mixed day, with an opportunity to help, but has a stubborn financial situation that requires patience. Sagittarius is either miffed by your loved one’s practical nature today or you leave the situation.

July 15: Moon goes into Virgo, adding to Virgo’s effectiveness.

July 16: another one of those days where things do not go as expected, but if you go with the flow to adjust, it is better. Everybody experiences unexpected visits, phone calls or communication.

July 17: harmonious day, especially for Virgo and Cancer, followed by Taurus, Capricorn, Scorpio and Pisces. Everyone else has a good day, too. Later in the day the Moon goes into Libra.

July 18: No exact astrological aspects.

July 19: quarter Moon in the signs of Libra and Cancer, who experience a challenging day, followed by Aries and Capricorn; signs which enjoy challenges. Gemini and Aquarius can help Libra, with Scorpio and Pisces helping Cancer. Late evening the Moon goes into Scorpio.

July 20: No exact astrological aspects.

July 21: No exact astrological aspects.

July 22: Sun goes into Leo through August 23. Time for Leo to move your projects; Aquarius experiences relationship control issues; Taurus and Scorpio experience control situations. Cancer and Virgo are neutral; Aries and Sagittarius enjoy creative time; Capricorn adjusts to costly demands, Pisces adjusts to being bossed. Gemini and Libra have opportunities to be included in grand social activities. Other planetary relationships indicate opportunity for practical projects to be accepted and financed. Virgo and Scorpio work well together, maybe asking Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer and Pisces to be included. The Sun and Moon are harmonious, lending even more harmony to the day. The Moon goes into Leo, too. Every sign is well aspected today.

July 23: No exact astrological aspects.

July 24: Moon goes into Capricorn and forms a see-saw quincunx relationship with the Sun, meaning things do not go as expected, especially for Capricorn and Leo. Taurus and Virgo can help Capricorn, Aries and Sagittarius can help Leo. Another planetary relationship reveals confusion or misunderstanding about a practical project that may be presented to a very idealistic person. Virgo and Pisces do not understand each other. It may be wise to postpone decision for later, possibly July 27. However, Taurus and Capricorn can help Virgo, with Cancer and Scorpio helping Pisces.

July 25: mixed day. Good day for creativity and courage. Leo may present an idea to be catalyzed by Aries, which goes well. However Leo has stubborn resistence to cost or may be resisted because Leo is pushing too hard for change. Taurus shrieks “eeek” when pushed for change, so please be patient. Gemini and Libra can use your famous diplomatic skills to help others see all aspects of the situation. Capricorn and Virgo can help Taurus, with Aries and Sagittarius helping Leo.

July 26: Mercury goes retrograde at 23 degrees Leo 27 minutes and goes direct August 19. The usual precautions are about the written word and electronics, especially printers. Leo may be more affected than others and should be careful of a too-expensive proposal that could be renegotiated to your detriment after Mercury goes direct. The other planetary relationship indicates another see-saw day when things do not go as expected. An expensive or opulent project is thwarted because it is either too expensive or not in accord with the established plan. Leo has a frustrating day, when Aries and Sagittarius can help.

July 27: lunar eclipse at 4 degrees Aquarius and Leo, opposing retrograde Mars at 4 degrees Aquarius. Obviously Leo and Aquarius feel this the most, experiencing relationship control issues. Scorpio and Taurus may experience financial control issues. The areas of the body for this full Moon eclipse are the calves of the legs, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, the heart and upper back. With Mercury retrograde in Leo, the heart may be especially vulnerable. The other planetary relationship indicates harmony for practical projects. What may have failed July 24 completes successfully now. Detailed plans fit well with an established structure and go forth easily. Virgo and Capricorn get along well, inviting Taurus. Again Pisces, Gemini, Sagittarius  and Aries may be irritated by detail. Cancer may experience relationship balance between emotions and practicality, but can be good for the project. Libra is mildly challenged; Leo and Sagittarius are bored. Scorpio can lend financial advice; Aquarius is neutral.

July 28: No exact astrological aspects

July 29: Moon goes into Pisces.

July 30: see-saw or quincunx day when things do not go as expected, especially for Pisces and Leo. Cancer and Scorpio can help Pisces; Aries and Sagittarius can help Leo.

July 31: No exact astrological aspects.

Mars retrograde in Aquarius, July 2018

How is your relationship?

Mars is the patron planet of men, machines and projects. Mars went retrograde June 26 and goes direct August 27, mostly in the sign of Aquarius and conjunct the south node in Aquarius emphasizing Aquarian nature. Aquarius represents friends, freedom, groups, abstract science and inventions. Since the south node is associated with the past, past actions may come to the surface, suddenly triggered by Mars.

Women have been calling, asking what in the world is happening? Why is he breaking up, acting weird, or wanting to be with friends instead of me?

During this time, if anything unsatisfactory in your relationship was simmering under the surface, it becomes evident with the man’s behavior. It seems that suddenly he wants freedom and cannot be suffocated. He may spend time with friends instead of you, or break the relationship. If the relationship was begun under false pretenses, it will be evident now with his behavior. If this happens to you it would matter if you are married or committed on how to handle it. Communication is usually the key to relationships, so try to honestly talk it out. Aquarius is sometimes brutally frank. If the issues cannot be resolved, be thankful you know and can move on. However, he may need some space for a while and say this is temporary, which is up to both of you how to handle the situation.

If you are a man and your relationship is unsatisfactory, study your own behavior to learn if you are turning her off without realizing it. You may want freedom now, which could be temporary, but at least let her know and talk about it.

To even things out, when Venus goes retrograde it is the woman’s behavior that reveals anything unsatisfactory in the relationship.

Since Mars also rules machines, if you have a car, truck or yard machine, it may require service. With Mars retrograde in Aquarius, the trouble could be a glitch in an advanced computer system controlling the mechanics.

If you had begun a new project, it may slow down during the retrograde. Your project may be something new to you, something advanced, or a group project. If it does slow down, ask friends or your group to help, develop it further and re-launch it after August 27.
