Lunar Eclipse 10 February 2017 Practical Magic

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 AstrologyThe lunar eclipse on Friday 10 February 2017 is at 22 degrees Leo. The lunar eclipse February 2017 astrology is awesome, wonderful and magical! There are so many positive aspects packed into the lunar eclipse horoscope that you can only be optimistic about the months ahead.

The Full Moon February 2017 lunar eclipse has many talents contained in a mystical aspect pattern. Truly beautiful symmetry with Saturn will turn talent to magic and bring practical results and lasting achievements.

Lunar Eclipse Meaning

Full Moon February 2017 is a lunar eclipse which focuses your attention on relationships of all kinds. The Sun opposite Moon qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a lunar eclipse. This lets you take an objective and balanced look at your close personal relationships. Being in touch with your own needs and intentions, and those of others, you can clearly see any relationship imbalances causing disharmony.

With a lunar eclipse in particular, the blotting out of the Moon represents a resetting of emotions, clearing away the emotional baggage of the previous six months. The horoscope for a lunar eclipse is like a snapshot in time, but like old style photography, it takes time to develop.

The February 16 lunar eclipse marks the end of an eclipse phase which began with the challenging September 2016 solar and lunar eclipse. Together with the February 26 solar eclipse, this February 10 lunar eclipse will remain active until the August 2017 lunar eclipse.

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 Astrology

Lunar eclipse February 2017 is located at 22°28′ Leo Sign as well as in Leo Constellation. At 21°40′ Leo in the Head of the Lion, fixed star Ras Elased Borealis will have some typically brash Leo influence but is not a major player among the stars. The full moon/lunar eclipse aspect itself, Sun opposite Moon, is much more powerful and highlights relationship dynamics and the polarities between partners, home and work, friends and family etc.

Jupiter opposite Uranus complicates those personal issues by exaggerating your need for personal freedom and excitement. You will feel a strong urge to react, or rebel against anything that is stopping you from having fun and doing what you want. There may be a sudden event that releases your built up tension and leads to a major change in circumstances. The more restricted you have felt, the more upsetting this change is likely to be.

Looking at the red lines in the lunar eclipse February 2017 astrology chart below you would think these two oppositions double the trouble. However, each planet of one opposition assists the planets in the other opposition. Do opposites attract through all the harmonious blue aspects?

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 Mystic Rectangle

The tense red cross enclosed by calm blue aspects is called a mystic rectangle aspect pattern. The high energy oppositions produce a lot of tension and activity. The harmonious aspects bring resolution to any conflict but can also mask an unsettled inner nature. This cool exterior may fool others into thinking you have it all together but don’t fool yourself. Recognize or admit the source of your red inner tension and use your blue talents to resolve them.

Moon sextile Jupiter and Sun trine Jupiter shower your personal issues with happiness and good fortune. Old relationships grow and new relationships blossom. The sociable nature of these aspects extends to group activities and helping out others. You will feel more generous and can expect favors and good fortune yourself. Financial gains can increase your net worth, plus your level of satisfaction and contentment. Personal and spiritual growth come through studies and travel, anything aimed at broadening your outlook on life.

Moon trine Uranus and Sun sextile Uranus revitalize tired old relationships and brings surprising new ones. Look forward to exciting changes, pleasant surprises and stimulating encounters. You should enjoy greater personal freedom to try something new and exciting. Socializing, group activities and chance meeting are favored. You are more likely to meet unorthodox types or people from different cultural or ethnic backgrounds than your own.

All New Pyramid Aspect Pattern

With Saturn placed above of the mystic rectangle as shown above in the chart, a three dimensional pyramid structure can be seen. Lets call it a pyramid aspect pattern, a rare beauty that requires five planets on similar degrees in five Signs. And lets say it turns the talents of the mystic rectangle into magic.

Each corner of the mystic rectangle gains wisdom and patience, stability and security from fatherly Saturn. The mystic rectangle is already considered a positive configuration and now Saturn really nails the point home. Respect Saturn and he makes your good works strong and lasting. Saturn uses the talents in the mystic rectangle to make practical magic.

Moon trine Saturn and Sun sextile Saturn gives the patience and emotional strength to handle any relationship issue. Others may come to you for advice on a personal matter or just for a shoulder to cry on. Traditional values and old habits can bring solutions to new problems. You can rely on strong instincts and common sense to make important decisions about your home, family and relationships. You are determined to achieve practical results and make no mistakes.

Jupiter sextile Saturn means cautious expansion. Sound judgement helps you chose the opportunities that are right for you. These opportunities may be in your career, through investment or business deals, or in your personal life such as major material possessions or relationship choices. Patience, perseverance and a strong work ethic mean you are most likely to succeed now. Common sense and sustained effort are required because this is a serious and long-term projects you are working on.

Saturn trine Uranus is a transition phase. This is the ideal time to make positive changes in your life because they should run smoothly. Change will not be upsetting or erratic as it sometimes can. You will remain calm and patient, planning every step methodically. You can find new days of doing old things without rocking the boat. Group activity is favored where you can bring people together from very different backgrounds and keep them interested in a common long-term goal.

Lunar Eclipse February 2017 Visibility

Being a penumbral lunar eclipse, only the fuzzy outer shadow of the earth falls on the face of the Moon. No blackening occurs but there should be some dark shading over one edge of the moon.

  1. Thank you so much Jamie.This one wil affect my life thoroughly. Because te moons node returns to my mon / Node conjunct and all planets touch the cluster in Leo i have. (19-6-1961 2:40 Germany).
    I have exprienced the power of this cluster and look forward to be tought more about life .

    • Myself also Ria 22/6/61 England, so Cancer rather than Gemini, my nth node 29Leo, it is proving to be more powrful than previously suggested. For me that is 10th house, so very aware this area is no longer in the privacy of my 4th house sth node, inclined more towards more of a public & responsible one, except mine is encouraging of being more loving yet feeling safer to be more vulnerable than the use/abuse of the past had me feel unable to trust, so far so good, I hope all goes well for you also. Happy to know Im in good company even if our new resolves differ, it is indeed our differences that matter more than sameness, it does require self trust and leaps of faith here n there, daeing to be “wrong” based on the sth node origins at time, nit a fan of roller coasters myself hahaha!

      • This shouldn’t affect u if you’re node is at 29 degrees. The eclipse falls on 22 degrees (plus or minus 4 degrees, so only if u have planets in Leo or Aquarius from 18-26 degrees)

  2. Sorry, not intending to hog your post Jamie, so the eclipse is the day before the full moon? My moon phases from Perth observatory have the full moon here as the evening of the 12th, so just checking

    • @Debbbe – A Lunar Eclipse IS a full moon! Here in the U.S it appears on the evening of the 10th, but there is a significant time difference between here and Australia, so perhaps it is on the 12th there.

      • Thanks for making the time to respond Liana & yes thats why I asked, it is always later here yet not usually more than a day, so its a little different this time and given Jamie is down this way, he usually gives that too, yet he has given the 11th, so I wonderedd if the observatory’s info may be out, will look further as it intrigues me, western australia is off the beaten track but not that far off hahahaha! Thanks again, very much appreciated 😉

  3. Hi Jamie, just a quickie question. My asc is 22 Libra and most of my cusps are 21/22. This lunar eclipse will fall just over my 22 deg Leo house into 11th house of Leo/Virgo. I have a stellium of north node, jupiter and pluto in Leo in the 10th natally. This eclipse at 23 is 3 degrees shy of my progressed Jupiter in Leo at 26. Is that too wide an orb and is it positive in the 11th?

  4. Hi there

    Im still learning all this…Can someone help me figure out how will this Lunar eclipse affect me? I have Leo in 2nd(5°20’07) and 3rd (26°06’06)?

    Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Sag, Asc in Cancer, North Node in Libra…

    DOB: 13/11/1977 at 8:06pm…

  5. Thanks this is a fascinating and hope-boosting article! I’m particularly interested because the Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn positions are conjunct my Moon (21 Aries), Pluto (23 Libra) and Sun (25 Sag) and Neptune (22 Sag)… so it looks intense! It certainly feels intense in my life at the moment… mask vs rebellion, peace vs truth, fear vs risk… all tied to just wanting to be realistic about being myself in a sustainable, self-sufficient way.

    September’s eclipses hit me horribly – got the ‘not sure I want a relationship’ speech on the first one, at the same time as secretly realising I had just conceived, and miscarried then got dumped on the second one. My boyfriend at the time said he got the fear. The first one squared his Venus exactly… so if I can enjoy a less challenging patch in relationships I would welcome that immensely.

    Anyway – I’m glad I found this page!

  6. Hi Jamie, great article. It’s good to have some understanding why I feel magic, like electricity throughout, as if I’ve swallowed a sun. It’s been growing for many weeks.

    Natally, i have Uranus at 21deg libra, opposite tr Uranus. Jupiter has been great recently, close to conjuncting&opposing Uranus again

    Would this affect my sun at 22deg Virgo? Make a yod with transit Uranus Aries and sun in Aquarius? Chiron in Pisces maybe makes a boomerang yod, being opposite my sun as the apex ?

    Definitely feel lit regardless of the specific cause 🙂

  7. I feel that the saros series energy is more relevant than aspect pattern. just my personal opinion

  8. This makes no sense at all whatsoever. I think you must have barfed on your keyboard. What a waste of time reading this bullshit.

    • As someone who professes to be the authority you do in the way you do, affecting the minds of others, I would suggest a good long honest look at yourself while this full moon is in full force Kesley, for your own sake as well as others. But then I dont profess to be an authority on anything, I just care about others and dont find any love or joy through those determined to spread and grow judgement & negativity, or invade the space of others. I have only a little awareness of your service and I dont personally agree with the little I have read, but that doesnt mean you are wrong nor would I be rude and invade your space that way, I dont know you, I am not you, I hope you manage to practice what you preach for a successful outcome in serving your purpose, the affect on the minds thus life of others is in your hands, so I hope & respect you are doing your best, regardless of what I think, that is all that others ask of you as well, besides, no one is obliged to make sense to all others, indeed making sense relates to who one resonates with at ones depths and ones personal elemental make up, we are all different, we all matter, not right or wrong, just is or isnt, but then I guess you know that already or you wouldnt be serving as you do. Still, I just felt compelled to offer, and you are free to choose to ignore and write me off as stupid too, it really is of no consequence to me, that is your choice not mine, your choice your responsibility your consequence, hoping you choose wisely.

    • Also, I am not so sure that Caroline Greenleaf will appreciate your personal comments being supported by a ping back to her service space either, not that I am inspred to follow her either, it is only that your offerings/choice/way appear as anti her christian interpretted astrological guidance which may damage her reputation, character assassination, deserving or not, those she is intended to be inspiring may become lost to that opportunity as a consequence also. But then I dont know her, may be she is ok with that representation.

  9. Thank you Jaime for all your insight I learn a lot about astrology reading your blog… my birthday is today February 10th; I was born in 1978 (Sag rising) but I was wondering how with this lunar eclipse affect somebody born on this day? I’m hoping for a better year I had a lot of ups and downs last year but my birthday season is never a really good time for me. Bad luck and stressful, just so confused?

  10. In others opinion we have a hexagram with asteroid Chaos at 20 degree gemini…the “King’s Star”.

  11. So I found out the morning of February 12th that my SO was having an affair. He ended it the day before on February 11th. This has been one of the most difficult weeks of my life, but it has not been without hope. It’s felt like a wakeup call to us that we either make the marriage we want or part ways. We have had poor communication for a long time and have two young children that have gotten the most of our attentions. Interestingly, the eclipse falls just one degree away from his ascendant and our marriage chart has an ascendant of Capricorn 21 and Moon Capricorn 23. In my chart, the eclipse happens towards the end of my 8th house, sextile venus in Libra. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?

    • I’m curious. What degrees/signs is your sun in. And what’s his moon. My guess is that the eclipse either squared your sun or squared his moon

  12. As someone who professes to be the authority you do in the way you do, affecting the minds of others, I would suggest a good long honest look at yourself while this full moon is in full force Kesley, for your own sake as well as others.
