'Mystic Rectangle' Lunar Eclipse in AQ: Aug 5, 2009


Yes, the chart for the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 5, 2009 contains a planetary pattern called a 'Mystic Rectangle' which assures us that this particular Eclipse has more going on than meets the eye!

Mysticism and practicality may work together in early August, so if spiritual matters are calling your name - and perhaps like me you're an '11:11er' - you may wish to check out the details for August 5's Eclipse.

Now you know that a Lunar Eclipse is a Full Moon while a Solar Eclipse is a New Moon; regular lunations such as New and Full Moons - as well as their counterparts, the Eclipses - indicate that something begun at the New Moon (in this case, the Solar Ecl of July 21, 2009, @ 29Can27) will culminate with the Full Moon or Lunar Eclipse about two weeks later...August 5, 2009 (or Aug 6, depending on your time zone.)

The fact that the lunations of July 21 and August 5 are Eclipses adds fuel and umph to their fires, and indicate that their influences will last longer than regular lunations. A more public realm of manifestation is also possible with Eclipses.

Let's look at the Aug 5 Lunar Eclipse's Sun Leo-Moon AQ blend of energies, shall we?

This is a Fire-Air combo, quite the 'live wire' and 'eternal youth,' so full of exciting ideas and plans. Others are persuaded and impressed by them as they easily communicate new ideas to all around them. Fire-Air isn't known for emotional intelligence, however; plus, there's a tendency to scatter energies until dissipation becomes a problem.

Sun Leo-Moon AQ: aristocratic; friendly and truthful; theatrical and proud, here is a broad-minded and extreme individualist kind of fellow. A noble bearing is marked along with deep convictions, spiritual strength, and a talent for courageous leadership. But this can be the 'law unto oneself' blend, too.

As with all Sun-Moon combos, the masculine Sun (consciousness) and feminine Moon (unconsciousness) aspects of the psyche should be integrated and synthesized for best development and use. More details may be found in the:

'Images for Integration: The king of a large, prosperous empire invites everyone to his wedding...The chairman of the board raises his glass to his able colleagues.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Shall I mention last week's 'Beer Summit' at the White House at this point?

Sun Leo-Moon AQ is shared natally by Beatrix Potter, Jacqueline Susann, Melanie Griffith, Kate Bush, Jon Benet Ramsey, Menachim Begin, and John Galsworthy, who brilliantly observed:

"Idealism increases in direct proportion to one's distance from the problem."

Hah! A perfect description of our Capitol Hill politicians and their ideological sponsors when they try to 'fix' things for others and 'improve' thorny problems that are most often created for others by...politicians.

Especially the ones who rush to make war by dropping bombs they'll never themselves have to dodge.


Here is a website devoted to 11:11 info, if you're interested in learning more. I don't know all the content that's on the website, but what I've read is interesting in relation to 2011 and the much-touted Mayan Calendar of 2012.
