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.

Lunar Eclipse September 2016 Astrology

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 Jamie, my ex broke up w me on March 8th, you you think these eclipse might change his mind and reconsile? He’s mar 16, ’78 5:07pm. This lands on his sun which makes a bunch of aspects to other planets too. I’ve been so bummed the past few months 🙁

  2. I’m 29 degrees pisces. How that eclipse is going affect 3rd decan pisces? ??

    • Hi Dianna. basically what I wrote applies directly to you. A five degree orb is technically a bit wide but you will still feel it. The effect on your decan will be mentioned in your monthly horoscope.

  3. Hi Jamie, the sun will be 3 degrees after the birth Uranus, Saturn is trine birth Saturn and the moon will be during eclise 3 degrees of a sextil with the birth moon. What do you think about this transits during moon eclise, moon in 9 house. thanks from Brazil

    • Hi Migberr. Any unsettling effect from Uranus change will be smoothed out bu your Saturn trine. The same applies emotionally with the Moon sextile. You can enjoy the thrills and excitement of Sun conjunct Uranus transit for six months without being a rebel or causing chaos. The best of any changes in yourself and your situation will become long term positive attributes. Changes aimed at building a family come to mind.

  4. Sun and Mercury conjunct natal Saturn.Venus is quite sexy, conjunct natal Pluto.Mars is conjunct natal Moon and Neptune. Plus Mars and Uranus form grand fire trine with natal Mars in Leo. Last but not least, Moon is conjunct natal Mercury and Jupiter is trine natal Venus

  5. My natal Mars is 24 Pisces. Uh oh. My biggest thing right now is not just all the anxiety which started in March, which is still bad, but the physical health stuff – its getting worse it feels like and its very scary. Could this eclipse help me instead of hinder me? DOB April 11, 1962 1:20 pm Vancouver Canada.

      • Hi Jamie. Its always so telling to read your insights here. my 8th house had been totally overhauled by the uranus pluto square, and the current saturn neptune square means I have to prove my worth to have credibility.

        I’m not so thrilled; most most of my chart is aspected…family life & parenting have been fairly protected.

        natal pluto 22 virgo conjunct 28 uranus virgo 1st…opposite mars 24 pisces, 27 chiron…7th

        these are sextile / trine neptune 26 scorpio neptune…3rd

        my sun is 20 aquarius 6th (conjunct vesta, pholus) so sextile uranus now (north node conjunct part of fortune is 20 degrees aries).

        I’m at post grad (study therapy) but also moving to fine art again. This eclipse will see jupiter transiting my uranus conjunct pallas (1st). Its really an intense year…(I’m 10.02.1968, 7.37 pm), my jupiter return is through 1st, (square cancer moon 10th)

        My partnership is straining, mostly devoid of creativity & joy or real freedom,as it has been for years and I’m concerned b/c venus will be transiting/ conjunct my sth node (2nd), mars will aspect my sun, own mars / pluto …pluto now is conjunct my venus 5th…someone who matters very much, I avoided, I’m wanting to face yet involves hard truth. Would appreciate any direction / ideas from you; throwing myself into work / study? I know I’m going to deal with it via work anyway…

        • Hi Eve. The important thing to take from this series of eclipse is lunar eclipse conjunct Mars, trine Neptune, opposite Pluto. So research:

          Sun conjunct Mars transit
          Sun trine Neptune transit
          Sun opposite Pluto transit

          The major transit affecting you comes from Saturn trine Uranus, with:

          Uranus sextile Sun transit Apr 2016 to Feb 2017
          Saturn sextile Sun transit 02 Jan 2017

          Follow your passionate desires and be comfortable being more selfish than usual.

          • Dear Jamie thank you for your advice, it is very appreciated. I have become involved with a charity holding art sessions for people who have suffered trauma. somehow I will fit time in there for my own work, people who matter. I hope your health concerns have cleared up and you are happier.

  6. Hi Jamie, this Sun going to conjuct my fortuna at 24 virgo. What will happen? When Jupiter crossed my fortuna at 24 I attended a meditation and mindfulness course. It was short but effects are long lasting. My DoB is 27/7/1972, Jaffna, Sri Lanka at 8:47pm. Thank you

    • I think you would have a better idea than me Dana. Think of Part of Fortune as representing the happiness of your soul.

  7. Hi Jamie.

    I wonder a lot regarding this eclipse because it will happen exactly on Vertex-Anti Vertex axis.
    I know a lot of astrologers don’t consider the Vx. But lets see this time …

    Sun conj Vx
    Moon conj Chiron and Anti Vx.

    What do you think ?

  8. Hi Jamie, this lunar eclipse is trine my Sun at 24 Cancer and the September 1 solar eclipse is conjunct my venus at 6 degrees Virgo and square my moon at 12 degrees Sagittarius. How do think these eclipses and Saturn square Neptune will affect my love life in the coming 6 months, Thanks Dana

    • Overall it should be a positive effect on your love life. Saturn square Neptune has finished hurting your Venus but still have some impact ahead on your Moon, so some emotional confusion or sadness ahead. You know I have Moon at 11 Virgo and have been feeling fine so far this year. Anyway, sounds good to me, best of luck.

      • Thanks Jamie! Appreciate your kind words..

        I am hopeful of some positive developments with the Saturn trine Uranus starting December. The first trine at
        20’36 forms an exact grand fire trine with my Mercury at 20’35 Leo. My Saturn is at 28’55” Leo and
        hence hoing that the second and third Uranus/Saturn trine will help me too though the orb is 2-3 degrees . What do you think?

        Neptune wrecked havoc on my relationships for the past 3 years with my ASC at 3 degree virgo and Venus at 6 degree Virgo!

        Thanks Again,

        • Aty lessdt you didnlt have to deal with Saturn square Neptune for those. i have Moon at 11 Virgo. I still think the second and third ones will have a positive impact despite the wider orb. Mainly because that part of your chart has already been hit off by the first trine, so is more sensitive. You could narrow down the timing by finding exact dates for each transiting planet.

  9. Exactly! Few days after i read this article, that is today, i came across an article entitled (A war within a war) In Syria’s war Kurdish fighters have begun to fight Syrian army. So there you have it.

  10. Hi Jamie , luv the way u give different perception and way of dealing w/ these intense energies. wat would U suggest best antidotes with dealin with mars conj saturn (a whole yr transit for me) and ones jup opposes their sun?

  11. My Chiron is 24 Pisces, how will this affect me?

    3rd Sept 1966

    Have already had sooo much happen the last few years!

  12. This eclipse looks big in my chart. It conjuncts my Ascendant. Mars is on my Midheaven being trined by Uranus. While Saturn is trine my mercury in leo and Mercury is square my jupiter in Gemini. Pluto is also trine my pluto. Something is brewing I’m not sure what. Its making me apprehensive. Any Ideas? should I buy lotto, lol!

    • Hi Cindy. A lunar eclipse on AC usually means relationship issues ahead. Uranus trine Mars on your MC sounds excellent. It will be giving you a quick and accurate intuition so go with what you feel, don’t hesitate.

      • Thank you Jamie for your reply. Jupiter has moved already in to my 7th house, so relationship issues are highlighted, now I just have to work out which one? LOL. Learning to not over think things is key, thank you. Must trust that it will all work out. (my underlying fear was that I may lose my job as it is a time bomb right now- not that I care about it, just I want to be the one to decide when to go- its more about having a financial support) However money may come from relationships. Hmmm. Will listen to my heart. Take care.

  13. Hi Jamie, hope you’re well. My date of birth is 7/27/1988 and my ascendant is 23 degrees Virgo. Could you please let me know how this eclipse will affect me? I’m a but worried as it is almost exactly conjunct my DC, even though I do not have a relationship. What can I expect?

    • It will focus your attention on relationships it also aspects the configuration in your chart hindering healthy relationships. You have Venus opposite Saturn conjunct Uranus. This lunar eclipse will square this opposition. So it sounds like you have this opposition square your AC/DC, or relationship axis. Sounds like time to get to the bottom of this painful area of your chart. The orbs are not terribly tight with Venus opposite Saturn at over 4 degrees but the conjunction of Saturn and Uranus does make it stronger. Plus Saturn and Uranus are both retrograde.

      Fortunately, the September 1 solar eclipse, which works in tandem with this lunar eclipse, is sextile your Pluto and trine your Neptune. Suggests to me you will get to the bottom of why relationships have been problematic for you. Lots of individual natal aspects to research to start with. Venus opposite Saturn is one of the most challenging of all aspects in astrology.

      • Thank you for your kind reply, Jamie. It has been painful. How will I get to the bottom of why relationships have been a problem for me? Through someone else or an outside circumstance? My Solar Return has Pluto exactly conjunct my DC, along with Saturn and Mars in the 5th. Juno conjunct AC.
        I’ve heard difficult Venus-Saturn aspects get better with age. Is there any hope?

  14. Mine, too. Except mine is also trine my natal Uranus. What would that mean Jamie ? For my ex it conjunct his sun and trines his natal Mars

      • You are good! We were just discussing getting back together today and about how good our physical chemistry is.. Wow and I’m seeing him at the end of the month after having not seen e/o in 10 months. There was a march eclipse that broke us up. But things are looking up. Thank you ! Oh ironically this full moon eclipse will land on my descendant too

        • Sorry Jamie I messed that up. I meant the moon (not sun) will conjunct his natal sun. And his natal sun is trine his natal Mars. So the sun is opposing his natal sun. Change anything for him? Sorry about that! My ex has nothing aspecting the corresponding sept 1 eclipse however

  15. I dont think i was very clear above :/ Any chance this guy’s aspects to the eclipse are any indication that he’ll want to get back with his ex (i.e. me). This has been so distressing for the past 6 months. Or will it be over you think? Thank you again (his info is mar 16 ’78 5:07pm calif

    • I don’t like to get into relationships astrology because of this- too time consuming. Just focus on your chart.

  16. Hello, Thank you for your interesting article! I have a question. Is lunar eclipse time (September 16) a good time for conception? We are planning a baby. Thanks, Anne

    • I have never thought about it Anne, not sure. I would be looking for nice transits from eclipses or outer planets to the Moon in your chart. That being said, young ones seem to have it already set in their minds when and where they are coming into this world.

  17. hi I m a little worried. The solar 1st eclipse is conjunct my chiron. 9 and black moon lilith.9.
    5th. Nothing at 23 Pisces for lunar. I dreamt a woman ? wants to come off the mountain as she’s fearful of earthquakes. Symbolically speaking.
    Wants to give up spirituality? which I have been considering feeling I ‘ve gone far enough. I have had difficulty in the past with jaundice but think I ve not seen much of it for awhile now.
    My main male relation has this solar eclipse almost exact his Pluto 8. All this sexual need will put stress out of the ballpark. Any hope?
    What’s with Chiron. I have the book on it – isn’t it about opening new dimensions? I too hope your doing well again.

    • You mean the solar eclipse is on your Chiron Lilith conjunction? It would be hard to give up on spirituality with this conjunction in your chart. I see then as symbolizing Jesus and Mars Magdalene in their higher manifestation. The solar eclipse on his Pluto will involve the kind of deep transformation that in a relationships would have to involve spirituality and sex. Sex magic or Lilith as the sacred sexual priestess.

  18. Hi Jamie, my natal sun is at 24 degrees in pisces in the 8th house. Should I be worried?

    • Don’t worry about the 8th House Lisa, I don’t even use them. How things turn out will depend on any aspect you have to the Sun in your chart.

      • Gah! Really feeling the energies of this eclipse. Have been very emotional the last couple of days and especially today over a relationship that ended recently. It was a brief but intense relationship, we met just prior to the march 8 eclipse the he ended it abruptly right on Saturn Neptune square in June. Am really struggling to get over this and wondering how long this will last and whether I’m just feeling the overall energies of these eclipses and square or if they have been aspecting my chart. 15/03/78 3:45pm in Melbourne Australia. Thank you for all that you do Jamie! I really love reading your interpretations. xx

        • I see things are a little more complex than I thought. Mars rising explains the strong influence on relationships. This feeling of reaching back to the past is a karmic issue because of Sun quincunx Saturn. Directly related to your partners because of Saturn quincunx DC. You therefore have a Yod aspect pattern with Saturn retrograde at the action point. At the reaction point is the Vertex point, giving you a boomerang Yod. See Alice Portman about the Vertex point in relationships.

          Another Yod is Jupiter sextile Saturn to DC action point with Mars AC reaction point.

          Another more obvious Yod is Neptune sextile Pluto to your MC, with Uranus IC the reaction point.

          All this means your life if more fate than free will, especially regarding relationships. Enjoy the ride!

          • Oh right! Haha yes definitely feels fated. Your article on Yods is excellent, there is not a great amount of info out there. Will love to research some more into this. What are your views on Yods in a composite chart? The composite with this person features a grand trine, kite and yod. Thanks again Jamie, you’re awesome.x

            • I’m sure that yods are significant in composite charts but I stay away from relationship astrology, it get so complex. I did prefer the Davison composite chart for some reason. I think it was the most accurate one when looking at transits. With all your Yods I would not read too much into the astrology of potential partners, apart from their natal chart and then very basic synastry. Go with the flow!

  19. My DOB is 3rd December, 1974, Ascendant 26 degrees Pisces. Please tell me how this month’s eclipse (september 2016)will effect me. My mother passed away on 8th March ,2016 (last total solar eclipse)

    • This eclipse is totally different to he March 2016 one. This will be a very good lunar eclipse for you Anju. You have Mars at 24 degree Scorpio. So it activates your Mars trine Ascendant.

  20. Hi. My dob is 27th March 1975, and my ascendent is at 11 degrees Cancer… could you please tell me how it affects me. Thank you!
