2008 - Solar Eclipse
16, 2008 - Powerful Lunar Eclipse
As any seasonal eclipse watcher can
testify, an eclipse is not only an astronomical event -- it's a
biological one too. Many creatures (even humans) begin to act strangely
when the eclipses occur. Even the earth's temperatures dip slightly,
along with a host of other weather and earth effects! It even affects
can learn more about the powerful Leo solar eclipse August 1st and the
lunar eclipse on Aug 16th and what it may mean to you and your business
in my blog at
I like to watch the path of eclipses, as
the areas that the eclipse shadows is very important and you will find
much news in that area the next several weeks. Even after the eclipses
are finished, the energy still is active for about 4 months afterward.
This upcoming solar eclipse will come very close to the magnetic north
pole - the path cross Artica via upper Canada, Greenland and into
Russia, Mongolia and northern China. You can't get any more north than
this eclipse path!!! I would also think that there may be some new and
exciting news about how the magnetic poles use the sun's energy -
possibly more different that we thought! The north and fellow south
poles may provide us with new information due to this eclipse path!
I am aware of a Volcano in Iceland that
has been dormant for over 5,000 year and erupted in 1973 on Heimaey, an
island off of Iceland that could become active again due to this
eclipse. It is not directly in the path but pretty close to it. Here
is a website of Iceland earthquakes in the last 48 hrs. It would be
interesting to observe at times during these few months.
Also there is a thin spot in the Earth's
crust enabling underground magma to melt Greenland’s ice scientists at
the Ohio State
University feel. According to them, the "hotspot" is
located in the northeast corner of Greenland (Eclipse path runs directly
over this area) -- just below a site where an ice stream was recently
discovered. The researchers don't yet know how warm the hotspot is, but
if it is warm enough to melt the ice above it even a little, it could
enable the ice to slide more rapidly out to sea. Artic and Antarctica
have been in the news recently due to the ice caps melting. This
eclipse may herald an acceleration of this situation. Watch the news to
see how this develops.
As you know from my previous emails,
eclipses correlate with earthquakes, volcanic activity/eruptions, severe
storms, hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons, and other unusual weather
phenomena. Lately the hurricanes have been traveling on a westward
course going over Honduras, Belize, central Mexico and the Mayan sacred
places. A lot of curiosity has started about the Mayan calendar and
2012. Possibly these storms may unearth some interesting materials.
See blog article on eclipses in general.
Near the Lunar eclipse, which connects with Neptune, could provide us
with some pretty intense earth disturbances - mainly EQ's that are 6.5
and above. The planet Neptune is associated with land and sea
disruptions, acute weather, volcanic activity and EQ's. Oil and gas
industries are also targeted for more news as the upward spiral of
increased prices peaks for a short time - probably prices may start to
decline - not going back to where they were, but at least give us a
This set of eclipses are in Leo and
Aquarius which suggests fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and
Aquarius) are dealing with more intense issues or events, life style
changes, health issues, difficulties, or unexpected news +/- . People
whose birthdays, anniversaries, incorporation dates or business starts
the first half of this month, especially with in 3 days of the eclipse
dates may be in for a little more change than what is expected. If you
would like to know more just give me a call !
The 2008 Republican Convention will be
Sept 1-4, 2008 well past the eclipse dates, but the Democratic
convention is within 10 days of the lunar eclipse. Let' see what kind
of unusual news, situations breaks out of this convention in Denver,
Colorado. Barrack Obama will accept the Democratic nomination on
Thursday August 28, 2008!

My diary for August has
filled itself, surely that wasn’t me! September is still looking fairly
clear. Perhaps for the whole of this month, the Sun/Moon cycle,
starting in Leo, is about enjoyment, fun, and optimistic
self-expression. I hope your August is filled with good things!
New Moon in Leo - 1 August 2008

Weather News for July 31, 2008
ECLIPSE: On Friday, August 1st, the Moon will pass directly in front of
the Sun producing a total solar eclipse. The narrow path of totality
stretches from arctic Canada through Greenland, Siberia, and Mongolia,
and comes to an end in China, where millions of people will witness the
event. Even more people will see the partial eclipse, visible from
almost all of Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia and a corner of North
America. The action begins at approximately 09:20 UT (5:20 am EDT) when
the Moon's shadow first hits Earth in northern Canada and begins its
rapid sweep toward China.

Please don’t worry about understanding the astrology - just go for the
the vision of the lion standing, front feet on a rock, raising it’s face
to the sun, to roar until the air vibrates with the sun’s creative
force! A statement of equality with the gods, the fierce joy of
spiritual connection expressed.
The Sun represents the heart of each person’s being, and Leo is
that part of the Zodiac where humanity most naturally expresses its
creative drive out in the world. This could lead to anything this
month, from an expression of one’s spiritual truth, to the roaring of
the ungoverned ‘little ego’ – not so little in Leo!
Bearing in mind
that we are human, not lion, if that self-expression is criticised, or
any creation is attacked, the Leo person is more likely to be crushed
than attack back. The heart is a tender place, and Leo comes from
their heart, usually with the best of intentions. Rather than crushing
their noise and drama, we need to support their courage, and appreciate
the warmth and authenticity of their expression.
On the 1 August, the Moon, representing our unconscious drives,
covering the light of the Sun in an eclipse, could find us behaving in
wild and unconsidered ways. In dramatic Leo, this is more likely to
be fun than frightful, but we may see a lot of hype in the media about
whatever’s going on this month. The suggestion is that you listen
carefully, take out the emotion from what you hear, and divide the
reported facts in half, in order to get nearer what really happened!
And take care if you are involved in any demonstrations because passions
are likely to be running high, obscuring the truth by exaggerating, and
possibly getting violent to ‘put their point across.’
There will also be a
partial lunar eclipse on 16 August, where facts and situations (Earth)
will tend to take precedence over what the people may want (Moon). If
we want to stay calm while those about us are getting upset, both these
situations give us plenty of practice in accepting what is.
The New Moon in Leo gives us an opportunity, when we make a stand or
argue over a principle, to check where we are coming in that spectrum
between true self and ego. Where are we rooted in ourselves? What
voice are we listening to? Is this my deep reality speaking, or my
early training, or my defiant inner child? This New Moon is lead by
Mercury, so it is likely to be through our communications that we
discover the extent of our authenticity. That means, we will realise
what we are really expressing from the feedback of others’ reactions to
Normally we tend to
assume that we said what we meant to say, and other people are being
obtuse if they don’t get it! But do we always understand others
immediately? Leo tends to have a spot of bother receiving
feedback without collapsing totally. But there is no fault when
communication is difficult – it’s just the gap between egos, all
struggling to survive and be loved, and we need to observe what’s going
on. It is the wise ones who learn from the responses to their
expression. Of course, our own emotional response to that feedback is a
giveaway to the expectations, hopes and fears that prompted our
expression in the first place.
Self expression versus sensitivity to
Venus has been going through Leo since 13 July, offering fun and
optimism in relating. On Sunday 27 July, she went across the South
Node, the past, bringing the history of our relationships to light. You
may have experienced a recurring situation that trips you up in life, or
perhaps met a person who felt strangely familiar. Everyone we meet from
a past life is not necessarily someone we need to fall headlong in
partnership with. Just because there’s a sense of having been together
before, it does not mean you need to be together again. Sometimes they
come to remind us of priorities we’d forgotten, and sometimes to heal or
teach us by giving us a hard time! Like friends meeting on the path, we
reassure each other that we are known, and then we can go our separate
On 28 July, Venus
opposed Chiron revealing our relationship wounds, and offering to heal
them, and 31 July, she opposed Neptune lifting our understanding
from these events to a more humanitarian or spiritual level. The
flavour of this month is likely to be that tussle between the bouncily
optimistic Leo Venus, and Neptune’s call to be sensitive to the needs of
other human beings.
There is still liable
to be confusion in relationships, though, until Venus moves into Virgo
on 6 August. Then we are more likely to find ourselves sorting out ways
our relationships can work better. One of the hardest things is
personal boundaries: knowing where they are, and staying within them
when relating to others.
We need space – but not too
Close personal relationships through the rest of August may well be put
on hold, while we deal with whoever we meet in the course of organised
activities. If these activities involve health and well-being, the
results should be surprisingly healing. Although we may need a certain
amount of space from others, to disentangle the emotional threads,
there’s a caution against cutting ourselves off for too long – this
month, shared pain brings healing to everyone
(Mars in Virgo opposite Uranus in
Pisces, but also quincunx North Node and Chiron). From 19
August, our motivation is more likely to include relating as part of
feeling good about ourselves (Mars

OF THE NEW MOON
PERSONAL SOLAR ECLIPSE
morning the New Moon occurs at 9 Leo 32. It will be exact at 6:12 AM
EDT, 5:12 AM CDT, 4:12 AM MDT and 3:12 AM PDT. This is a Solar Eclipse,
and occurs with a stellium in Leo. Our love and affection for others is
about to be tested. Unlike most planetary aspects which build to power
as the aspect becomes exact, the Solar Eclipse can be set off at any
time over the course of the upcoming year, and is not limited to simply

Our New Moon falls between two stars, Asellus
Australis (Southern Ass) and Giansar, so we will examine what Anne
Wright has to say. From

History of the
star: Among the stars of Cancer is a small grouping called the
Aselli, or Asses and along with Praesaepe (M44) the Beehive or Manger,
form a mini constellation in their own right, which appears on the back
of the Crab's shell. Popularly this configuration was also known as the
"Manger", or "Crib" in which Christ was born - (it has been suggested
that this is because Cancer was the "Gate of Man"). They were the
Northern and the Southern Ass Colt, the Ovot, or Asses, of Ptolemy and
the Greeks; the Aselli, or Asini, of the Latins, and now popularly known
as The Donkeys. Other names were "A Resting Place", "Ending of a stop",
"The Aselline Starlets".
The Arabians similarly knew them as the Two Asses and called this
star "the Mare Ass" (female donkey).
A Greek myth tells us that these asses were ridden by Bacchus and
Vulcan in the war between the Olympians and the Titans. The braying of
these animals, aided and added to the gods shouts, frightened a group of
fierce giants who were coming to avenge their brothers, the Titans, to
such a degree, that they fled the scene of battle. The asses were placed
in the heavens flanking the mysterious glow called the Manger or
Beehive - M44 (Praesaepe) to make sure they never lack food.
Manilius alludes to these outstretched stars as a Yoke.
Gamma (Asellus Borealis), delta (Asellus Australis), eta, and theta
were the Persian lunar station Avra-k, the Cloud, and the Coptic Ermelia,
In this constellation, with some slight variations as to boundaries
at different times in Hindu astronomy, - gamma (Asellus Borealis) and
delta (Asellus Australis) - the Aselli - always being included and
occasionally eta, theta, and Praesaepe, - was located the 6th nakshatra
Pushya, "Flower", or Tishiya, "Auspicious", with Brihaspati, the priest
and teacher of the gods, as presiding divinity. It was sometimes figured
as a "Crescent", and again as the "head of an Arrow"; it was also called
The Arabic manzil Al Nathrah, the Gap in the hair under the muzzle of
the supposed immense ancient Lion that the Arabs had here, was chiefly
formed by Praesaepe; but later gamma (Asellus Borealis) and delta (Asellus
Australis) - the Aselli - were sometimes included, when it was Al
Himarain, the Two Asses, a title adopted from the Greeks. The Arabs also
knew it as Al Fnm al Asad and as Al Anf al Asad, the Mouth, and the
Muzzle, of the Lion, both referring to the early figure.
though it be, the Babylonians used delta to mark their 13th ecliptic
constellation Arku-sha-nangaru-sha-shutu, the Southeast Star in the
Crab; and Brown says that the Aselli, with eta, theta, and Praesaepe,
were the Akkadian Gu-shir-kes-da, the "Yoke of the Enclosure".
Star Names, Their Lore and Meaning, Richard Hinchley Allen, 1889.
The astrological influences of the constellation given by Manilius:
at the hinge of the year by the blazing turning-point which when
recalled the Sun rounds in his course on high, the Crab occupies a joint
of heaven and bends back the length of day. Of a grasping spirit and
unwilling to give itself in service the Crab distributes many kinds of
gain, and skill in making profits; he enables a man to carry his
investment of foreign merchandise from city to city and, with an eye on
steep rises in the price of corn, to risk his money upon sea-winds; to
sell the world's produce to the world, to establish commercial ties
between so many unknown lands, to search out under foreign skies fresh
sources of gain, and from the high price of his goods to amass sudden
wealth. With heaven's favour he also sells seasons of idleness at rates
of interest to his liking, wishing the swift passage of time to add to
the principal. His is a shrewd nature, and he is ready to fight for his
Astronomica, Manilius, 1st century AD, book 4, p.235.
General influence of Aselli: According to Ptolemy both the Aselli
are of the nature of Mars and the Sun, but Alvidas states that the North
Asellus (Asellus Borealis) is like the Sun and Mars in sextile, and the
South Asellus (Asellus Astralis) like the Sun and Mars in semisquare.
Together they give care and responsibility, with a charitable and
fostering nature, but danger of violent death, serious accidents and
Asellus correspond to the Sun and Mars, both these fixed stars are
therefore to count as a positive influence, if in conjunction with the
Ascendant, MC or stellar bodies of the same character, but especially if
grouped with the Sun or Mars. These people will have an aggressive
nature and will not take insults easily. They may, by their own lack of
caution, or by being dare-devils, put their life in danger and they will
not hesitate to use brutal and violent means. When the Asellus are with
the Ascendant danger by large animals (horses, bulls) may exist.
Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1923
donkey is a lovable creature, but it can be very self-willed and
uncooperative indeed, at times of its own choosing. The Aselli (this
star and the other donkey Asellus Borealis) display all the moodiness of
Cancer at its most negative, while in Leo. A conjunction with the Moon,
Mercury, Venus or Neptune, well aspected, will often reveal the poet,
painter, musician unusually gifted, composer, psychic 'medium' or
astrologer. In all cases too, there is a patience for which the donkey
is respected, a quality necessary for all really reliable psychism.
Perhaps when the donkey is being stubborn, he is seeing something in the
path which his impatient master cannot or will not see.
The Living Stars, Dr. Eric Morse.
Aselli rising: Burning fevers, bad eyes, blindness of left eye,
injuries by beasts, quarrels, slander from low women or vulgar persons,
martial preferment. (Robson*).
Aselli culminating: Disgrace and ruin, often violent death.
Blows, stabs, serious accidents, shoot ting, shipwreck, beheading,
hanging, murderer or murdered, violent fevers, danger of fire, disgrace
and imprisonment. (Robson*).
Australis with Sun: Unfavorable for dealing with the public and
influential people trouble in business. (Robson*).
Inflammatory fever, pains in the head, blindness. (Robson*).
Australis with Moon: Ill-health, defective sight, hearing or speech;
bad for business affairs, loss of friends and trouble through enemies.
Vehlow, the Chinese gave this group of stars (the Manger or Beehive and
the Asses) the name 'The Spirit of the Ancestors' and were of the
opinion that if conjunct the Moon, they would have peculiar
experiences with the realms of the dead. (Ebertin).
Australis with Mercury: Mental affliction. Difficulties brought
about by children. Much worry and disappointment. Bad for success in
spite of help from friends. Loss by fire of valuable papers. (Robson*).
Trouble through friends, unfavorable for love and marriage, enmity of
women, too fond of pleasure and society. (Robson*).
Energy, courage, misapplied powers, little success, public disfavor.
Legal and ecclesiastical troubles, hypocrisy, dishonesty, false friends,
danger of imprisonment. (Robson*).

lady's man; if female, rather masculine in appearance and character;

11h31m. Latitude: +57.14'.
M0. Magnitude: 4.1.
History of the
star: A small orange star in the Dragon's tail located nearly midway
between the Pointers of Ursa Major (beta Merak and alpha Dubhe) and
Polaris. "Hebrew name Giansar, 'the punished enemy'". (Bullinger The
Witness of the Stars ). Giansar and Giauzar are variously derived:
either from Al Jauza', "the Twins", - a little star is in close
proximity, - or from Al Jauzah, "the Central One", as it is nearly
midway between the Pointers and Polaris-; or, and still better, from the
Persian Ghauzar, - Al Biruni's Jauzahar of Sasanian origin, - "the
Poison Place", referring to the notion that the nodes, or points where
the moon crosses the ecliptic, were poisonous because they "happened to
be called the Head and Tail of the Dragon." This singular idea descended
into comparatively modern times, and, although these points are far
removed from Draco, still obtains in the name for lamda. Juza is another
popular title. It also has been known as Nodus Secundus, "the Second
Knot", possibly because thus located on some drawings; yet it is far
removed from zeta, which usually bears that name.
Star Names, Their Lore and Meaning, Richard
Hinchley Allen, 1889.
astrological influences of the constellation: "According to Ptolemy
the bright stars are like Saturn and Mars. Draco gives an artistic and
emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much
travel and many friends, but danger of robbery and accidental poisoning.
It gives craft, ingenuity, and valor. The Ancients said that when a
comet was here, poison was scattered over the world.
CHART OF THE NEW MOON
The Leo stellium is the main reference in this
month's lunation. The principle aspect is the eclipse's square to Vesta,
the asteroid of the hearth fire. Vesta is an asteroid which deals with
control and focus. It generally produces a strong sense of
responsibility and control of emotions. This can be dedication and
focus, or it can represent those who are cold and emotionally isolated.
We may be called upon, in the next celestial cycle, to let go of one we
love. This is an alignment of difficult choices, but with Vesta in the
picture, the ability to say 'no' when necessary is one of the
characteristic strengths. With Vesta in Taurus, it is also possible that
we may have to give up some of our possessions.
Venus has already made alignments to Uranus and
Neptune, and so those issues should already be behind us. As the Sun,
Moon and Mercury all make trines to Juno, family values and security
within the group should be enhanced and strengthened. Our partners
provide a strong show of support for what must be dealt with.
This Solar Eclipse is triggering the natal Moon (Leo
8 degrees and 52 minutes) of yours truly. Like the ancient Mayans, my
impression is to run around and block off all the light from the windows
and close off any access through the chimney. Of course the eclipse will
not be seen in the western world, but its influence wraps the planet and
'speaks' to any who have natal alignments in this position.
My personal interpretation is that eclipses
represent an interruption of the flow of energy of the planet in
involved, in this case, the Moon. If you have a planet within a few
degrees of nine Leo, then a celestial house cleaning may be in store for
you, too. Check out where nine Leo falls in your chart, and check out
both that house and the house that your triggered planet rules. These
will represent the principle areas of activity.

Celestial Intensity and the Eclipse
by Daniel Giamario
In the Shamanic
Astrology paradigm, all
planetary initiation cycles
occur in one of the three realms
of the Shamanic World view; the
Celestial (or Upper World), the
Middle World (or Objective
Reality), the Underworld (or the
Lower World). The major events
of the next few weeks are
powerfully Celestial. It is not
often the world "Celestial: is
paired with intensity but that
is the scenario of these next
The Celestial configuration
includes the Full Moon of
Aquarius on August 16 (2:16 pm
PDT at 24 Aquarius 21): the
Neptune Sun opposition on August
15 (12:43 am PDT at 23 Aquarius)
and the remarkable conjunction
with Chiron and the North Node
from August 12 -20 in the early
minutes of 18 Aquarius.
It is difficult to imagine a
more auspicious series of
alignments designed to
facilitate a maximum opening to
the Celestial. From the
perspective of the Shamanic
Astrology Mystery School the
Celestial Includes the most
wondrous and filled with Grace
Openings to the benign
benevolence of Great Mystery.
(See Cayelin's wonderful
Grace) However, the
intensity component relates to
the current eclipse season from
August 1 to 16 culminating in
the Aquarius Full Moon Lunar
Eclipse seasons happen twice a
year. All eclipses are Super New
Moons and Super Full Moons and
occur when the Lunar Nodes align
with the path of the Sun and
Moon. Eclipses mark a time of
maximum shadow and maximum
light. The Solar Eclipse (Super
New Moon) is aligned with South
Node emphasizing the path and
illuminates the accumulated
shadow of the Leo mystery
school. The Lunar Eclipse Super
Full Moon will be aligned with
the North Node illuminating the
path towards the Celestial
Future of Humanity.
Adding to the amazing Celestial
Symphony is the approach of
Jupiter to the star Nunki
symbolizing the vane of the
arrow aimed from the Archer to
Galactic Center. Jupiter's
stationary direct placement is
exactly Nunki. (More about this

The recommendation, inspired by
these cosmological symbols, is
to surrender to the Grace and
Infinite Compassion of the
Celestial whilst simultaneously
accepting and digesting the
historical and global "shadow"
of the last 6500 years. Or as
Ram Dass has put it "Keep your
heart open in Hell..."
PS... For those who are open to
intensity, I highly recommend
