Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius July 27 2018

Breaking Free
July 27 2018

The full moon on July 27, 2018 at 4° Aquarius is a total lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse is a precisely aligned, supercharged Full Moon. The Earth’s shadow falls between the Sun and Moon, and what is typically the brightest night of the month is veiled in darkness. As the light goes out, our shadows, secrets, feelings that seem too big or scary demand attention and expression. Changes that have been brewing behind the scenes are catalyzed into action, and we often see significant completions. This Eclipse is mainly influenced by Mars, making this an emotionally challenging eclipse. Mars anger and frustration could easily turn to reckless actions because of a harsh aspect to Uranus. This  represents a significant turning point within its retrograde cycle (June 26 to August 27).

Mars retrograde in Aquarius advises us to search within to uncover our true desires, rethink our contribution to the collective, and reclaim our individuality and freedom. As the Full Moon conjoins Mars on the South Node, we can get clear feedback about what no longer inspires or motivates us. This total lunar eclipse in Aquarius is sandwiched between the South Node and retrograde Mars, bringing a strong focus to completing unfinished business and breaking free from the past. 

Uranus, modern ruler of Aquarius, squares the Sun, the Moon, Mars, and the nodal axis, amplifying the revelatory and revolutionary power of this lunation. Unexpected events, erratic behavior, sudden changes, and radical breaks with the past are possible. We may feel like we’re spinning in a swirl of chaos, but this Uranian storm can shake us out of stagnant patterns. Uranus trines Saturn supports us to integrate the radical changes triggered by this eclipse into tangible, lasting forms.

It brings the potential for a crisis with your self-esteem, a relationship or an event, and for neurotic distress triggered by a deeply buried subconscious fear of disaster.  Bringing awareness to core underlying patterns, thereby raising consciousness of what needs to shift. The higher potential of Mars is to access a version of the masculine beyond the rules and norms of social convention, a Mars that reflects the Aquarian Age ideals of equality and freedom for all.

Remaining calm in a crisis is the key to dealing with this overly emotional lunar eclipse. With an emphasis on fixed signs and retrograde planets in this eclipse chart, we might feel like we’re going backwards, regressing into old patterns. But we can trust that there’s a deeper layer of healing ready to happen, as the eclipse opens a powerful portal for clearing stuck energy and emotions. 

As we’re pulled into the darkness of the unknown, we’re called to trust the flow of change, to let go of our attachment to what we thought our future would be, and come into greater acceptance of what is.
