The lunar eclipse of August 7th is at 15 Aquarius. Ancient esoteric astrology teaches that the fifteenth degree of all fixed signs opens an energetic vortex known as the Gates of the Avatar.
This important degree of the fixed signs (Aquarius, Leo, Taurus and Scorpio) activates the midpoint between the equinoxes and solstices.
Both the solar and lunar eclipses of August also have Universal impact because of the critical degrees they both trigger.
An Avatar is a divine teacher brought to earth, but the spiritual teaching of the Age of Aquarius is that we are all meant to fulfill our own highest potential; to enliven your own Avatar energy.
There are helpers and guides, but as we awaken we are increasingly empowered as creators.
Here are the words of astrologer Dane Rudhyar on the Avatar gates: ‘An ‘Avatar’ in ancient terminology is in fact a release of cosmic energy. These Four Gates are symbolized by the four symbolic creatures: the Bull, the Lion, the Eagle and the Angel. Each of them depicts a particular type of dynamic release, a particular type or Ray of Power.’
With Rudhyar’s description in mind – the lunar eclipse of August 7th activates the Ray of Power of the Angel/Human realm.
Any eclipse, solar or lunar, is a cosmic re-set. However, not every eclipse will impact your personally, and that’s why it’s important to understand your own astrological chart!
The lunar eclipse is about what your are learning in life, and it impacts your emotions and your thinking.
. . . . . . Imagine that you are a conference, sitting in a large room, and suddenly the lights go out.
After a few minutes the lights come back on, but –something’s different.
When the lights are brought back up, you’re still at the same event, but imagine that there is a new speaker. Physically, the room is still the same, but you are challenged to deal with another person’s point of view.
The lunar eclipse is like an extreme tide; it changes the landscape and changes your point of view. On a positive note – you come to see things differently.
This is a simplified analogy, and ultimately, both the lunar and solar eclipses have to do with Light.
Eclipses are reflections of Light. During a lunar eclipse, the moon passes behind the earth, and is therefore denied the light of the sun.
Remember, because the moon has no light of its own, it can only reflect the light of the Sun.
When the earth comes between the sun and the moon, the realities of life on earth can overwhelm our emotional bodies. With the moon hidden from the sun, fear and even the dark side of your nature is left hanging – for a moment.
The word Light, when used as a noun, is natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible.
And Light as a verb is an action that ignites something (fuel) and makes it start to burn.
The upcoming eclipses will impact you more if you have planets or primary cusp houses (ASC, DSC, IC, and MC) at the degree of the eclipse.
So, if you have 15 degrees (with 2 – 3 degrees of wiggle room) of Aquarius, or – any other fixed sign, (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio) you’ll feel this eclipse. Let it be an inspiration, and allow it to open you up.
This full moon urges YOU to release your avatar gift.
And, your chart is a crystal clear road map.
