Lunar Eclipse 16 September 2016 Warmonger

Lunar Eclipse September 2016 AstrologyThe lunar eclipse on Friday 16 September 2016 is at 24 degrees Pisces, right in the middle of Pisces decan 3. The lunar eclipse September 2016 astrology is angry and complex but with options to channel your energy toward love and creativity. A willingness to be daring and make changes will help you move past the anger and onto the exciting possibilities.

September 2016 lunar eclipse adds warmongering to the fearmongering of the September 1 solar eclipse. Open mindedness and the desire to love different things can overcome the guilt and fear caused in your personal life by Saturn square Neptune.

Likewise, some minor adjustments like tolerance and empathy can lead to surprisingly fast resolutions to conflicts at the global level. Otherwise, lunar eclipse September 2016 square Mars will see new wars, worsening wars and wars within wars.

Lunar Eclipse Meaning

Like any full moon, a lunar eclipse focuses your attention on relationships of all kinds. The September 16 lunar eclipse itself has a relationship to the previous moon phase, the September 1 solar eclipse. Projects started then can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. However, this is a work in progress and will continue until the next series of eclipses in February 2017. The lunar eclipse can also be seen as an emotional adjustment, or compliment, to the themes of the solar eclipse.

As the Sun opposite Moon qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a lunar eclipse so an objective and balanced look at personal relationships is possible. 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.

Lunar Eclipse September 2016 Astrology

The September 16 lunar eclipse acts as a companion or counterbalance to the September 1 solar eclipse. Together they make up an eclipse phase which lasts into February 2017. Lunar eclipse September 2016 square Mars means you have had enough of the fearmongering, lies and propaganda highlighted by the September 1 solar eclipse. You will feel like it’s time to fight back against a year of worry, guilt and depression caused by Saturn square Neptune.

The combined impact of the Sun square Mars and Moon square Mars brings simmering anger to the surface so care is required to avoid being hurt or causing harm. Both the anger and any potential pain is emotional but may also be felt physically by you or another. Tests of character can come from your competitors or enemies, at home and at work. Courage is needed to face what is making you feel threatened.

You may already be irritable and impatience, and likely to react to any provocation or threats with aggression. This buildup of anger, resentment or sexual frustration needs to be channeled constructively to avoid conflict, accidents, muscle pain or exhaustion. They key to handling this quick anger is to release your frustrations in a controlled manner. Exercise, masturbation or hard work are preferred so long as you don’t push too hard and strain something.

Don’t release you lunar eclipse energies through Mars by lashing out against the system. There is another way to react against the solar eclipse theme of fear and guilt. The frustration and anger of Mars can instead be channeled into passionate desires, creativity and fun. In the lunar eclipse September 2016 astrology chart above, follow the blue lines from Mars to Venus opposite Uranus. Although this opposition is another source of stress and tension, the friendly blue aspects bring many opportunities to resolve conflict and turn fear, anger and sadness into fun, love and excitement.

Venus opposite Uranus brings excited anticipation about love but stems from some underlying upset and tension with loved ones. This is closely linked to the anger and resentment arising in relationships due to the lunar eclipse square Mars. This potentially explosive mix can be safely defused by seeking change or excitement in the bedroom, on the Internet or through some type of amusement, entertainment or diversion.

Lunar Eclipse September 2016 Opportunities

Mars trine Uranus allows you to let your hair down and take a few risks. You will be presented with many unique opportunities to experience new activities, feelings and relationships. Your instincts will be strong and accurate, so taking extra risks at this time should pay off.  Your sex drive and physical attractiveness will also enjoy a boost. This will match your increased desire for excitement and sex, so finding a willing partner comes easier than at other times.

Venus sextile Mars is the perfect blend of sexuality and affection makes you look and feel sexy. You can be confident and assertive in chasing your desires without appearing threatening to others. This is an ideal time for dating because of your suave and playful nature. Your are likely to attract someone as sensual and sexy as you feel. Your creative talents are highlighted and your charm and increased popularity make gaining support much easier than at other times.

Sun quincunx Uranus along with Moon quincunx Venus represent subtle changes or alternations, needed at times to keep things from getting out of control. There is a lot of volatile, spontaneous energy in this lunar eclipse so care must be taken not to let your engine overheat. Even if you channel your frustrations and try to follow the harmonious blue aspects, the tension of the squares and oppositions will continue to rise.

After a gradual buildup of energy, a tipping point will be reached. Experimentation, open-mindedness and empathy can lead to a breakthrough or solution and balance will be restored. If not, then a loss of temper will also release the electric energy but result in two steps back instead of one step forward. This step will be much easier if you remain flexible or are a creative person.

If you are bossed around at work or feel constrained or tied down at home, then some adjustments may be needed to make this lunar eclipse work for you. A degree of personal freedom and tolerance from others is needed. This will allow you to express your true self through little changes here and there. By the same token, be aware that other will be looking for some affirmation that you do take notice of them.

Fixed star Markeb at 23°43′ Pisces conjunct the lunar eclipse gives riches and honor but also operations and injuries from cuts, blows, stabs and fire. The key to dealing with this star is self-mastery and being happy with what you have. This is the quiet, unassuming, untroubled true master, compared to the embattled, imprisoned, pathetic pretender to mastery. Markeb square Mars means you should not lust after what others have. If your desires are just and honorable then you may be surprised with true love after all.

  1. Hi again Jamie,

    The September 1 solar eclipse fell on my midheaven and venus, this lunar eclipse falls in my 4th house conjunct my jupiter, could I ask you if it bodes well for moving/getting a new home/resolving a home situation and is it possible to know when the effects of an eclipse play out, is it over many months/years? I hope this is a positive influence re home because of the influence on my jupiter and the fourth house, hopefully doesnt expand troubles. Im 23/7/86 2.40pm Sydney Australia.
    Thanks again for your help and time.

    • You are definitely on the right track Stargazer. The eclipses will last until the next eclipse series in February 2017. Home can be IC, Moon and Saturn. I notice the previous little lunar eclipse was on your Moon. It is possible it lasts a little longer than a regular full moon. Venus trine Mars and Jupiter trine Part of Fortune both help out these latest eclipses. Saturn sextile Moon transit the end of January 2017 looks promising for home matters.

  2. when are the lunar eclipse effects felt until. Is it a week after the actual date? (besides the full 6 months after)… I remember you saying when mars or some other planet triggers the eclipse point, when would that be? THANKS

    • If other planets cross the eclipse degree then you can expect some development in your major issues. But I still stick to the six months time frame, up to the next series of eclipses in February 2017. I notice they can even get stronger as we approach the end of the cycle, especially if you have left things undone.

        • Not sure yet but I will be writing them up very soon and posting then so I can add the info to the 2017 horoscopes. Probably within 2 or 3 weeks hopefully.

  3. This lunar eclipse is exactly opposite my natal Venus, which natally opposes my Mars and squares my Saturn. How will this influence me?

          • For this lunar eclipse I would only consider it opposite your Venus. While you can have larger orbs for natal aspects, transits including eclipses only reach out to a max of 2 degrees. I use one degree for planets and regular moon phases, up to 2 degrees for eclipses.

            One things that stands out to me in your chart is the amazing grand trine with Pluto, North Node and MC. I would be looking forward to Neptune transiting your North Node to show you your true spiritual calling. Rather spiritually inclinded stars there too.

            Pluto conjunct Acrux
            North Node conjunct Achernar
            South Node conjunct Zosma
            Midheaven conjunct Sirius.

    • Research those natal aspects because the eclipse is highlighting them. You will be presented with challenges associated with those natal aspects so you can evolve further along. Your love life and stagnation there sounds likely.

  4. I enjoyed reading your post and some questions crossed my mind 🙂

    How a Saturn opposition to the eclipse would play? ( my natal Saturn is in Virgo 27

    If mars rules your Mid heaven would that mean that the eclipse could make you feel challenges on that area?

    What about Aries people, would they feel it stronger?

    How the conjunction of the eclipse with natal Venus would play?

    If there is a saturn venus opposition between two charts and mars is im both cases a key player, what the eclipse would trigger?

    When can we expect mars or Jupiter to trigger again the eclipse?

    As mercury is retrograde could the eclipse be felt again once mercury wakes up? Could the outcome change?

    Always a pleasure to read posts that make you think. Thanks!

    • Too many questions greedy!

      I have not written Moon opposite Saturn transit but it will also be like Sun conjunct Saturn transit for six months.

      For lunar eclipse aspects see Moon transits, or the opposite Sun transit.

      As for planets hitting the eclipse degree. Look at the chart and you can see Jupiter is nearly opposite the moon so will take about half a return or 6 years to get there. Mars is a closer thing and will get there on January 20, 2017. Venus on January 28.

      • Sorry if you understood it on that way Jamie, that was not my intention!
        In fact, I was just sharing some of the questions that popped into my mind when I read your post and I was not expecting answers to all of them. In any case, thank you for explaining how to understand a moon opposition Saturn and in which dates planets will hit the same degree. I noted those dates on the agenda!

        My feedback about the eclipse: The eclipse opposite my natal Saturn was indeed draining (emotionally and physically). It also activated strong communication through dreams… very vivid and on the spot dreams!

        In regards to Mars, I was surprised to notice that many people around me (including myself) decided to make a trip or a trip was somehow involved after the “storm” (the eclipse).I guess transiting Mars in Sagittarius was the culprit. In my case, Mars was very close to my natal Neptune and indeed I travelled by sea and one of the main reasons was related to MC matters (Mars rules my MC). There were also delays (mercury retrograde)

        I also noticed that the anger or discomfort within couples that I know increased and their balance was somehow broken (like if you need to let go of something with compassion-piscis- to regain balance within a relationship- libra-). I could also notice Neptune at play as many friends experienced some disillusions and had to deal with people that were not completely transparent in their dealings (in a particular case the eclipse urged people involved in a legal matter to close, some days before the eclipse, a deal without looking carefully to all the facts. Then the eclipse showed the true character of people and highlighted things that people tried to conceal. Plus Mercury retrograde created a havoc with communications thta led to big mistakes. These were only fully acknowledged once it stopped to be retrograde and the eclipse passed. Finally, things began to be resolved when Jupiter conjuncted Sun but further legal action may be taken at the new moon in libra !…it’s mazing to see how astrology works! ).

        As for Aries people (at least those that I know) my findings are that they felt it deeply in comparison with other signs. In most cases it was related to emotional relationships.

        As for the conjunction with Venus: I think that in the long term it might be a good aspect but for the person in question it was like to be forced to see how others perceive this person within relationships ( which in itself I guess is good) but because natal Venus is squaring natal moon I suspect that it was not so nice for the person as the eclipse highlinghted self-damaging behaviours and asked to grow up emotionally.

        As for Saturn Venus opposition between two charts (when Mars is in both cases a key player): emotional upsets related to Mars topics came to the surface and a very straight forward communication followed. The fog of Neptune was also there but eclipse brought enough light to take action. The final outcome was distance and a breakdown of communications (Mercury retrograde I guess). I will still need to wait to see if mercury stopping to be retrograde can bring a change to this situation which I suspect it will. My gut feeling is that act 2 of the eclipse may come in January on the dates that you mention. Let’s see what happens!

        Once again thank you for writing such interesting posts!

        • You understand then. I tend to get through as many questions as I can in an hour or so before I start on other work each day.

          Dreaming may also be due to solar eclipse on your Mercury, plus that solar eclipse on the star of prophecy would be influencing your Mercury. Dreams traditionally ruled by Moon, then Neptune but also I believe Mercury as messenger of the gods.

          Can you remind me what I said about January in relation to these eclipses?

          • You are amazing trying to answer a huge amount of questions !!

            Firstly, the response to your question: “As for planets hitting the eclipse degree. Look at the chart and you can see Jupiter is nearly opposite the moon so will take about half a return or 6 years to get there. Mars is a closer thing and will get there on January 20, 2017. Venus on January 28.”

            I read on your post that this aspect will happen on the 20 January 2017 so again my gut feeling tells me that it would be an important day !

            Secondlyy, our comment about dreams piqued my curiosity! Are we talking about the solar eclipse on 1st September (which yes made an aspect to my mercury)? are we talking about markeb? Is this a star of profecy? When my dreams are activated I am always on time….they are so vivid, I can remember even the most tiny detail and with the time I can read dreams very easily …the never failed me. I have also wondered why I have this ability if we can call it like that.

            My Neptune is in Sagittarius 19.54 and conjunct vertex 22.22 so would you think that this eclipse triggered them? (to be honest sometimes when I have these dreams the feeling is like traveling far away) … is this eclipse then aspecting my MC ans IC 22,12 (aries and libra)? trine and sextile?…um haven’t thought about that!


            • Hi again Meli. It is not Markeb but Zosma which is the star of prophesy. Marked is more about higher education and travelling. I see you talent there with Vx Neptune trine MC you cold make a career out of Tarot reading and similar intuitive careers.

  5. Lunar eclipse in general- if it opposite my mars and trines my neptune- I can’t find anything on your site on the opposite mars (and what have you seen with the trine of the neptune). Bad or good for the love life?

      • Will do! Thank you. Sorry quick question. In charts of women who are engaged or married, do you often find that the natal planet in their chart that the eclipse triggers is their natal sun? I was looking at Dutchess Katherine and when she got engaged and married the solar and lunar eclipses around that year were conjuncting/opposing her natal sun. If sun represents man , then is this consistent with what you’ve seen around engagements/marriages time in terms of eclipses. Thank you much

        • What a great observation. I have not seen this but I have not looked for it. Interestingly though the September 1 solar eclipse fell on my Moon and I have just met someone I want to marry.

      • Yes my natal Mars sextiles Neptune as well as my natal moon is trine my Mars. And my natal moon sextiles my Neptune.
