Happy eclipse season, soul fam! I hope you are ready to sizzle and blast off this summer, cuz things are gonna really be rocking over the next couple of months. We are lucky enough to experience three consecutive eclipses this summer. Typically there are only two, so we are in for a real treat. The first is a partial solar eclipse (new moon) on July 13 in Cancer (universal time, it’ll be on the 12th in the Americas). Then, a total lunar eclipse (full moon) occurs on July 27 in Aquarius, and finally on August 11 we’ll enjoy another solar eclipse in Leo
Resident astrologer Colin Bedell tells us in his wise and fab style all about what the stars have in store for us this month!
Celebrating the Summer Solstice has been a tradition as early as the Stone Age, around 2.5 million years ago. Early civilizations honored the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and even built monuments to the sun’s movement (I’m looking at you Stonehenge and the Great Pyramids!).
Astrologically, this is perhaps the most important week of the year as Uranus moves into Taurus, an event some astrologers have lovingly called “Tauranus.” After a seven-year whirlwind in Aries—the planetary force of revolution, technology, and awakening—Uranus shifts signs on May 15. Occurring shortly after the Taurus new moon, this day marks a major shift in consciousness as well as offers an extra fertile time for new beginnings.
This February, we only experience one lunation in the entire calendar month, and it is a new moon solar eclipse in the sign of Aquarius. This type of event, a month without a full moon, will not occur again in many years, making the energy of February all about new beginnings and planting the seeds of the future you wish to cultivate and co-create.
On January 31, 2018, we will experience an astrological event that we haven’t seen in 150 years! This blue moon (a full moon occurring twice in a calendar month) is also a total lunar eclipse and supermoon, in the zodiac sign of Leo at 11 degrees. Wowza! This is a trifecta triple threat, in the best way possible! Bingo, bango, bongo!
