Lunar Eclipse

part of Astrological Glossary

- occurs when the Earth is situated directly between the Sun and the Moon. This can only happen at the time of a Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in the opposition, close to the lunar nodes. Not every eclipse has an equally powerful effect. The nearer to the moon’s nodal axis an eclipse occurs, the more powerful it is likely to be. Lunar eclipses reinforce solar tendencies (future perspective, new but often dangerous or unrealistic ideas). Until modern times, most people thought that eclipses heralded disastrous times ahead. Modern astrologers see eclipses are powerful triggers that can activate other horoscope factors whether in the personal horoscope or that of a country. The effects of a lunar eclipse are felt until the next eclipse of a similar kind, usually in around six months.
