« Astrology in Early July 2009 - Uranus Stationary Retrograde As Mercury and Venus Release Major Energies | Main | Long Range Eclipse Astrology - Understanding Future Effects of the July 2009 Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn-Cancer Pt. 2 »



Thank you for this, Robert. I look forward to the Part 2.

If one doesn't have planets or points in the signs you mentioned, could one look to the Houses in the chart those signs rule and then look how those ruling planets are being aspected by the Eclipse Chart?



Hi Robert...thanks for this article, I was waiting for this one. Life looks so stagnant for me and I hope, these eclipses might help my home life and career to a better extent. The July 22nd eclipse conjuncts my natal Saturn (in Leo) in my 9th house and remotely conjuncts my MC too. What does this mean ? Will be thankful for your reply.


Hi Robert, and thank you for this post. Looking forward for part 2. I have rising at 24 degrees cancer and the Solar eclipse will be on my first house, squaring my Sun on 10th. Which are the orbs of influence we follow in analyzing the aspects?



Hi, Robert. Since I have so many planets-Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus--clustered in Taurus and the 9th House, how should I treat those houses which are "empty?"


Robert! Thank you.


Hi Robert,
From your post...
"It is sure to dynamically affect anyone with an Ascendant or planets between 13-19 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn",
I was going to ask about the Lunar eclipse being conjunct my nadir at 14 cap...opposing midheaven Cancer,
and squaring asc/des Libra/Aries 12.06 and POF at 13 degrees aries.....endings?
...and the solar eclipse sextiles my north nnode at 2 Libra...trines my snode. 2 Aries..beginnings?

Im feeling inner shakings....


Hi Robert,
I am not very learned when it comes to astrology but I have enjoyed reading your page for the past few years when I crave an update. Here's my question- this lunar eclipse is also coinciding with guru purnima (a hindu holy day when where one celebrates one's guru). I have heard that an eclipse on this day is inauspicious, although I am trying to view it as a difference in energies. Do you have any thoughts on this?


Hi Robert, thanks for this. Like a lot of people, I am looking forward to something coming and lancing this collective boil that seems to have been building forever!

I'm not sure if you're covering the summer eclipses' contacts with personal planets in the next part, but I wonder if you have any brief insights as to what to look out for should this happen? The lunar eclipse of July 7 is going to come within a few degrees of my 7th house Mars in 12+ Cancer, and the solar eclipse of July 22 is going to make direct contact with my 2nd house Moon in 29+ Capricorn. I am aware that the energies may be quite potent but do you have any advice on how I should channel them positively?

Very best wishes,


I look forward to Robert's response as well. A good thing to remember with Eclipse contacts to personal planets or points is that if something is being aspected directly by the eclipse, all the other planets or points that aspected planet has a relationship with is being set off as well.

My partner's Saturn in his 6th House will be conjunct within 3 degrees this upcoming Lunar Eclipse. But this Saturn has many aspects -- square Sun, sextile Neptune, trine Pluto, Grand Trine with North Node and MC --, so those relationships will be energized or shaken up, too.

So, even if his Sun isn't within orb of being touched by this Eclipse energy, due to the relationship he has with Saturn who IS being affected, he'll be affected as well.

If I'm mistaken, I do hope Robert will correct me. :-)


duse - Yes, I am aware that the contact with the eclipse will set off the other aspects too. I just didn't want to bog down the comment stream. I figured I could make the further connections myself.

Thanks for the comment.


My apologies if I offended. Certainly not my intent. Perhaps one of the other Posters -- or a newbie Lurker -- will find the information I offered of use.


Dear Robert,

I have been with even more work that is already customary! But - funny enough! - I feel so efficient that there is a strange sense of "empowerment" in getting so much done! Do you think this has to do with Uranus? I am sleeping less, working more and feeling energetic even though, for all accounts, I should be tired and dismayed at all the excess work.

Also there is a strange sense of "expectation".

Dis you notice the quantity of earthquakes lately? And just one in California?

All the best, Namasté and much Love from Lisbon.


PS - Missed coming here and also missed Adytia and Morvah - well I did not post in the mean time, eithr, maybe soon...


Duse - no offence taken and none intended either! Was just over explaining as I do (sun-saturn-mercury conjunct in Gemini is my excuse!)


Hi all - Just had a great manifestation of Mars square the Aquarius stellium and Moon square Saturn yesterday. I sprained my ankle!

Hi duse - Of course. Whatever is going on with a transiting planet will surely affect the affairs of the house it's transiting, as well as the houses it rules. At least I think that's what you're asking. Good insight as to planets in one chart showing as influences in another's life if that planet indicates the partner, parent, child, sibling, and so forth. Aspects show us how we relate to what's being stimulated, and as you know, a trine may yield difficult understandings, and squares yield favorable turning of corners.

Hi Mary - The relative strength of eclipses is very important, since a weak eclipse won't have nearly the obvious effects that a strong one would. Just remember that no planetary configuration makes anything happen of itself - it is WE who make all things happen, or not, depending on our intention, effort, persistence, and Dharma. Beginning July 22, old elements of your Saturn will be shut down so that new elements can come forth. You will probably find old truths and duties leaving, and more mature elements of understanding based in your life experience come forth. There will be other effects, of course, but more than this is beyond a comment stream.

Hi Suryamukhi - If you're discussing orbs, that's a huge thing. Solar/Lunar orbs are always greater than mere planetary orbs. Different aspects have different orbs; for ex., an opposition from the Lights to a planet can be very wide, as much as 12-15 degrees, whereas it's never more than 8 for planet to planet. Solar quintiles can be as much as 5 degree orb, but planets are never larger than 4 at most, and so on. It would seem that old elements of your self image are going to leave, as are old 2nd house views.

Hi AnneTexas - Natally, they are areas of exploring what you are not familiar with, governed by the planet ruling the sign on the cusp. As planets move through empty houses they can be associated with circumstances that help us round out our understanding of how well we're functioning in the affairs of that house. Void zones created by multiple planet configurations usually show skills to be developed and solutions to discover.

Hi Sherriemorgan - You're welcome. I trust the other eclipse articles will shed even more light! (Another coming later today, Solar eclipse articles coming next week and the week after.)

Hi WHR - The Sun's on your public sector, the Moon on your past. You'll release some things publically so you can integrate your public persona. This will be the demonstration of your "growth exercise" at the bottom of your being. Perhaps you'll discover something from your early life showing you where you got your amazing discipline. The Solar Eclipse will help you move into a more public self-awareness.

Hi Katy - Glad my articles can speak to you. I have several articles in the archives about how to regard eclipses and work with their energies. In Vedic Astrology, eclipses are uniformly "bad," though I do not ascribe to this thinking. They all take things away, but as nature abhors a vacuum, then surely when one "light" is taken away it enables us to see other "lights."

While I am all for celebrating Saints, Sages, Gurus and Saddhus (with every breath I take!), even our own veneration must ultimately transform into our Living Truth saluting the Living Truth of the Guru, since there is no difference between the Teacher, the Teaching, and the Being who seems to be Taught. Perhaps a lesser form of celebrating your Guru's light/life will become something even greater!

Hi HH72 - It would be almost impossible for me to list all the possible contacts and possible effects. Just way too much information! Just remember that eclipses shut down old lights so other lights can be glimpsed. So if it conjuncts a planet, something about that function will be shut down so other facets can be developed. In your case, an old Mars will shut down, while you will find new Capricorn ways to express what's left. July 22 will show that an old way of externalizing your Moon will end (or perhaps an old way of being opposed specific to your Moon) and new 8th house elements will open doors. As you can see, infinite possible expressions. Still, Saturn will be of great help to you this next year despite its waxing squares to your Gemini planets.

Hi Isabel - The efficiency is partly due to the Scorpio voids generated by aspects to the Aquarius stellium along with Saturn in Virgo doing its usual thing recently trined by Venus and Mars. Don't know why you're sleeping less. Could be any number of reasons. Earthquakes are happening in all sorts of forms!


Thanks for taking the trouble to reply so conscientiously, as always, Robert. Much appreciated.


Thanks dear Robert for your comment and I hope that the "individual earthquake" that made you spray your ankle will let you get better soon!

All the best,




your answers always "trigger" hidden info...., but I am surprized by your statement
of my "amazing discipline"...yesterdays eclipse definetly closed some doors on some
old "addictions"....

Thank you, warrior brother..


Hi all - Thanks for the good wishes. The ankle and foot proceed to heal at their own pace. WHR, it's always about which doors to close, which to open, which to refuse, all are worth pondering since they did appear in one form or another.


So sorry to hear about your injury! Definitely a Mars manifestation! Did Mars aspect your own sun or Mars? Well, be patient, take care of that ankle. As with any other sideliner, use the time to take inventory, meditate, cogitate, etc.

Namaste! :)
