Solar Eclipse 12 July 2018 – Crisis Averted

Solar Eclipse July 2018 AstrologyThe New Moon on Thursday July 12, 2018 at 20° Cancer is a partial solar eclipse. The Solar Eclipse July 2018 astrology is influenced by a powerful opposition to minor planet Pluto. This indicates some sort of crisis with your self-esteem, a relationship or an event. An equally intense fixed star brings the potential for neurotic distress triggered by a deeply buried subconscious fear of disaster.

The July 2018 Solar Eclipse signals the right time to transform something in your life holding you back from happiness and success. A fortunate Grand Trine configuration allows you to apply this transformation to your love life, finances or creative work. Hard work and determination will unleash the potential and opportunity held within the grand trine to help avert a personal crisis.

Solar Eclipse Meaning

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. Solar eclipse July 2018 is a partial solar eclipse so most of the Sun will still be visible. The new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. A new moon influence lasts for four weeks but a solar eclipse usually lasts about six months. However, there are two solar eclipses in this eclipse series. The following solar eclipse on August 11 will supersede the July 12 solar eclipse.

The strongest and most important aspect in astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. It is time to question your old habits and behaviors as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start, so write your new goals down on a sheet of paper. The best time for making a new start is from the solar eclipse to the July 27 Lunar Eclipse.

Solar Eclipse July 2018 Astrology

At 20°41′ Cancer Sign the July 12 Solar Eclipse actually falls within Gemini Constellation. Due to the process of Precession of the Equinoxes, the Sun Signs are almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named. Our zodiac was developed over 2000 years ago as a coördinate system for recording astronomical data. It was totally unrelated to astrological activity. Observation of the planets for astrological purposes continued to be related to the visible constellations. [1] It is for this reason I use fixed stars instead of Sun Signs as a backdrop to the planets. I use the Signs as they were originally intended, as a convenient measuring device to divide the horoscope equally into 12 Signs and 36 Decans.

Fixed Star Castor

At 20°29′ Cancer Sign is the brightest star in Gemini Constellation, fixed star Castor. Like the planet Mercury it gives distinction, a keen intellect, success in law and many travels, fondness for horses, sudden fame and honor but often followed by loss of fortune and disgrace, sickness, trouble and great affliction. Its natives are said to be mischievous and prone to violence. [2]

Castor is a star of misfortune with the specific association with breaking an arm or leg. It also gives proneness to nervous breakdowns and neurotic distress. Castor represent the fine line between genius and madness. According to Dr. Morse:

Castor, the former Apollo, is in fact a Binary Pair of stars, as once were Sun and Phaeton. A binary pair evokes a deep-seated fear in humanity, an unconscious recall of The Disaster, so that we tend to react to it just as one does all the wrong things in a moment of crisis, if it happens to half-awaken in one some earlier trauma of the same kind. [3]

According to Robson, Sun conjunct Castor : Prominence in occult matters, government work dealing with foreign affairs, serious accidents, blows, stabs, shooting, shipwreck, injuries to the face, blindness, disease, violent fevers, evil disposition, rape or murder committed or suffered, imprisonment, banishment, decapitation. And with the Moon: Timid, sensitive, lacks confidence, occult interest and psychic ability, blindness, injuries to face, disgrace, stabs, wounds, imprisonment. [2]

Solar Eclipse July 2018 Opposite Pluto

Sun opposite Pluto indicates some sort of crisis with your self-esteem, a relationship or an event. This may be due to a self-destructive character trait such as addiction, spying or stubbornness. In relationships, you may be the subject of, or the perpetrator of, manipulation, jealousy, domination or spying. Events may include the breakdown of an appliance or car, theft, violence, or the destruction of a possession by people of a natural disaster. Things like this will more likely to happen if you have been stubbornly resisting change, or have engaged in some habit that is destructive to yourself or others.

Things like this will seem to happen out of your control. In a way they help you to realize that you don’t need to have total control over others or your environment. Even though you may experience a bruised ego from the solar eclipse, there is also great potential for positives if you are open to change. Change may be forced upon you, or better still, you may instigate it and this solar eclipse will be less disruptive.

A solar eclipse opposite Pluto urges you to transform for the better. To evolve your soul so that you may live a better life and experience more satisfaction. It is most common that this would occur through a close relationship, such as a family member, close friend or partner. The opposition to Pluto is under one degree orb so is a very powerful influence on the solar eclipse. This adds to the intensity of Castor and it subconscious fear of disaster.

Pluto is Retrograde

Pluto retrograde represents  is a time of reflection about power and control in your life. If people have controlled or manipulating you then now is the time to let them go. If you have been too controlling of others or situations then it is time to let go. This is not a time for power tripping but a time for elimination. Fated events and repeating themes will reinforce which of your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions or prejudices must be eliminated. Destroying things which have control over you will increase your spiritual power and lead to personal mastery.

Pluto retrograde 2018 is ideal for taking a direct, even aggressive approach to dealing with your Pluto retrograde power and control issues. Unleash your inner warrior and confidently stand up for your rights if you have been dominated or abused. Intense determination, willpower and fighting spirit will help you overcome adversity, addiction or illness. Using the power of your mind you can transform a personal crisis into a success story. Miracles are possible.

Solar Eclipse July 2018 Grand Trine

From Castor and Pluto it seems the Solar Eclipse July 2018 astrology symbolises transformation in response to a crisis but does not offer much in the way of help. Fortunately, the chart above shows a Grand Trine aspect pattern which is the blue triangle linking Venus, Saturn and Uranus. The fortunate trine aspects create a balanced and harmonious blend of the planetary energies. Grand trines are very fortunate, showing great natural talent and creative potential.

Venus trine Saturn is ideal for committing to a relationship and making long-term investments. All relationships can benefit from your sensible approach and steady affections. New love found now may be with someone from a different age group and would likely be a long-lasting, soul mate union. Existing relationships will enjoy closer bonding and stability. If a relationship has been stressful lately then this is a good time to work through the problem and find a solution.

Venus trine Uranus gives an urge to try something new that can apply to all areas of life, from hobbies to romance. Your affections will be stimulated and new love is possible. If you already have a partner then you will be seeking a different kind of pleasure. Experimentation in the bedroom may be necessary to keep your eyes from wandering. If single, an electric or kinky type of attractiveness will bring eccentric or different types of people within your range.

Saturn trine Uranus represents a transition phase in life which works so well with Pluto as the transformer. This is the ideal solar eclipse to make a positive change in your life because the grand trine will smooth out the more dramatic nature of the Pluto transformation. It will help you stay calm and patient, and plan every step methodically. This is also a good eclipse for experimentation and creative self-expression. So you can find new ways of doing old things without rocking the boat.


The star Castor conjunct Solar Eclipse July 2018 suggests misfortune and neurotic distress from deeply buried subconscious fear of disaster.  The eclipse opposite Pluto retrograde intensifies any distress or fears. Pluto also means you could be confronted by a crisis that forces you to take a serious look at an area of your life that is holding you back from happiness and success. Powerful forces are at play and they are out of your control. So the only way forward is to surrender your power and control to a higher force. Trust your instincts and trust your spirit guides.

Pluto urges you to transform that negative, destructive or limiting part of your life. The fortunate grand trine allows you to apply this transformation to your love life, finances or creative work. The Solar eclipse July 2018 astrology is certainly intense but only lasts the four weeks until the August 11 solar eclipse. The grand trine shows potential and opportunity but needs conscious effort and hard work to manifest and avert a personal crisis. Remember to get started on your transformation before the July 27 lunar eclipse.If the Solar Eclipse July 2018 astrology chart directly affects your Sign you can read about it in your free Weekly Horoscope and Monthly Horoscope.

  1. I’ve been super worried about this eclipse because it squares my natal moon and Pluto. Any chance you can tell me how this might play out? I tend to move whenever there is a full or new moon to my Natal moon but this I’m not sure .. 2-16-79 7:55 pm in Calif. thanks Jamie

    • I posted this eclipse early because I know many people are worried about it. Because if you have a challenging aspect from this eclipse it amplifies the challenging Pluto transit you are already experiencing. My best advice is to read up on Pluto square Moon transit and Sun square Moon transit. Also check out how the other planets in the eclipse chart affect your natal chart, you may find some strengths there. Even minor transit will last the entire eclipse phase.

      • Thank you ????. I can positively say that my Natal pluto conjunct Natal moon is positive for me. But that square Pluto to my moon is freaking me out!

  2. My birthday is on this eclipse and the last thing I need is more bad news after these trying times. Sigh. Honestly expected it to be a good marker for my solar return

    • Hello, my birthday too. 62 this year. Please do not worry, you and I have already had 1 pass of Pluto opposite our Sun degree, only 4 to go! Just as the exact degree ends we get the Saturn conjunct Pluto at 22 degrees on Jan 12th 2020, its all about consolidation. You may have lots of family and friends and money, I do not but maybe like me you need to understand that you are first (in a positive way only) not them, look after yourself first ,LOVE yourself , again not in selfish way. We are not being persecuted we are being helped.!! You have a good birthday. xx It is a good marker, you are correct.

    • This is my birthday too. I honestly don’t know whether to feel excited or terrified! I’ve had enough of all these transits lately. I can’t wait for the day it all finally ends!

  3. Hi, Jamie, i think there is one more Grand Trine between the eclipse, Neptune and Jupiter – wide orb, but still… and both Trines making something like a Star of David? I hope this is good, or at least new and different.
    This eclipse also conjunct my Venus few days before my Birthday.

  4. Hello Jamie, Thanks for this. Its on my birthday and I was worried. (5 transits of Pluto opposition Sun at 21 degrees) However , I feel the Star of David (Solomon) grand trine is so positive that for anyone who has this on their birthday or making aspects can transform though Pluto, including governments. Pluto is about death or endings and then new starts, beginnings, nothing outshines the Sun. So, for me and every other Cancerian who’s birthday is near this date. Do not worry about this only good and new beginnings can come of it, and I can assure anyone thinking I am being flippant, I’m not. I feel very over burdened by fate and my own future seems to be so full of misery. Cancer is about home, whatever that is to you, home is where your soul is. Look after your home (soul) and Pluto will help to rid you of stuff that is no good to you.If family relations are not good and they often are’nt for Cancerians just let it go instead of trying to hold on to misery, let it all go (Pluto), family cannot be lost, no matter what.!! You may or may not have new beginnings in time. Start by clearing out possessions you don’t use and give to someone who does need them, your home (soul) immediately feels better. PS. Jamie you have put June 13th on the world times. Love you Jamie and again thank you for this article.

  5. Hi Jamie, am having plastic surgery done May 15, I hope this has nothing to do with this eclipse? Super worried! Should I postpone, its a deviated nose septum which is giving me trouble, but I am wondering whether I should put it off? bdate: 27/6/ 68. on the other hand an ex of mine may get married, so it might be that – which gives me the chance to move on with my life, hopefully find another partner after 6 long years of been hopelessly stuck.

    • Hello Elena, of course have the surgery, its the new moon in Taurus followed by the entry of Uranus to Taurus, Freedom, Freedom and Freedom. Of course you will find love again, real love, your name has changed. Let him get married, it will free you and if you think you love him then you want the best for him (don’t you)????? If not, then he is just casting a long miserable shadow on your psyche. Let him go. By, the July eclipse you will have a lot of new confidence. xxxxx

      • ps. Elena. look at an ephemeris for 2010 to 2012, Pluto opposition your Sun. Let the toxic love go and wait for real love to come, no need to look either. Wishing you good luck and happiness.

      • oh gosh thanks so much linny – so much love to you – I really really needed that – you have no idea. Its been horrible the past few years, and you just gave me such hope, bless your heart. xoxoxo

  6. You don’t know nothing about me. Date of birth, time of birth & name, place of birth. Then how are predicting about me.

    • This is not about you. its about all. Question: why are you posting on this site? If you can’t be decent, Don’t post.

    • Yes, as Linnywalker said this is not about you specifically. The eclipse has a general influence on everyone. But for more specific detail you have to see how the eclipse and planets aspect your birth chart. Follow the link at the bottom of the post to Sun transits if you have something in your birth chart around 20 degrees of any Sign.

  7. What will be the effect of this eclipse on librans and scorpions.

  8. 25´cancer sun and 25´scorpio asc – I like the earth trine here – I have a water trine natally – with jupiter 12´in pisces, neptune 10´in scorpio and mercury 13´in cancer. I don´t like pluto opposing my cancer sun..but it trines my asc and my progressed sun is 20´virgo..and my natal venus is 6´virgo – looks pretty good..Cancers need more support! And the world needs cancers – not more me first enery! Not more bullying. Not more using other people.

  9. Jamie, this sounds like a super boost to whatever one needs to transform in these areas if heeded. This will take place at 9 degrees before Ceres in Cancer at 29 degrees in my 8th house. I am planning to sell my parents home before then. Do you have any other insights? Thank you for your continued work!

  10. Hi Jamie,

    Thank you so much for this post as I have been worried for a long time about this July eclipse…
    Something big is coming but not sure it will be great news….my natal Venus is at 19.12 cancer , my midheaven 22.12 Aries, my North node at 20.11 leo, my Pluto at 19. 56 Libra ( and IC of course is conjunct natal Pluto), Neptune is at 19.52 Sagittarius, Vertex at 22.22 Sagittarius, Jupiter at 17.20 Virgo…….and Pluto transit is making an opposition to natal Venus of course. …..oh I forgot natal Chiron is at 18.16 Taurus and Uranus at 21.51….so well if I take into account that you once told me that my natal Venus plays some kind of big role in my chart….this eclipse makes me shiver!

    I even don’t know where to start the analysis after looking at Pluto opposite Venus which so far has brought many headaches , any help would be welcome! thanks

    • Hi Meli, does Venus conjunct Castor mean much to you? Strange and peculiar life, many extreme ups and downs, unfavorable for marriage. This causes the natives to be overly parental in relationships, whether they are business, family, friendships or their marriage partner. They are continually attempting to mother everyone, making sure they are all wearing warm clothes in cold weather or have some hot soup to eat. This is extremely overdone, but it is not really harmful. It can become overbearing, however.

      If so, they are the thing which Pluto will be transforming.

      • Hi Jamie, first at all thanks for your reply. Much appreciated!

        I have been thinking about Venus conjunct Castor: I do have a peculiar life, most of the time by things out of my control or family matters (maybe Venus squaring Pluto does not help as Pluto is almost conjunct IC) and yes extreme ups and downs that are also due to things out my control. Sometimes I have a very busy life and some times everything seems stuck. I cannot relate to unfavorable marriage unless it can be understood as not been very lucky with love…would Castor be the root of this?

        I do tend to be very caring with people close to me but with the current pluto transit that makes an opposition to natal Venus, I am still caring but more selective. I need to feel that I can deeply trust the person to show how I care for them and I do not allow people to take me for granted.

        What I have noticed is that in all types of relationships peole tend to take my granting nature for granted. It would seems as if I can never withdraw how I care for them but the fact is that until now most of the time I was more giving than receiving.

        Would pluto transit change the way in which Castor influence my Venus nature? should the eclipse be painful for me ? Thanks!

      • Hi Jamie, still giving a thought to this eclipse. How can you know if you feel it one month before or after? I had a very a very fishy conversation (hot and cold in a blink) that highlighted a relationship crisis (Venus in cancer oppsoition pluto?) due to past pain and control issues (so pluto that) on the 9th of June. Could it be the eclipse ( my venus is at 19.12)? Thanks!

        • Yes it is possible. A few people have asked this now, about feeling eclipses in the weeks before hand. But I still suggest you go back and look at the previous lunar and solar eclipse, and previous new and full moon to see how they aspected your chart. See if it explains how you feel at the moment.

  11. Amazing article. I have Natal Sun at 20 degrees of Leo… Just wondering: Any thoughts on the essentially exact semi-sextile aspect happening in “next-door-neighbor” Cancer? And, with the sun-moon-Cancer-Leo blending, would you expect a kind of mutual reception amplification?

    • I don’t use rules like mutual reception because I see the fixed stars as the backdrop to the horoscope, not the Sun Signs from which rules are based. The semisextile is not suppsed to be so strong but gives positive links and adjustments.

  12. I am wondering if you can help me as I am worried as my solar return ascendant is 21degrees Leo my radix 14deg Leo my moon 23deg taurus and my radix sun 13deg aquarius. Really really scared???

    • Did you cast your solar return chart for your current location and use precession correction? Besides, 21 Leo is only semi sextile this solar eclipse which is mildly positive. It does not affect your Sun or Moon either.

  13. BTW natal venus conj chiron 7deg in capricorn trine MC Taurus and quincox 23deg moon in Taurus. Life has been extremely unbearable these last 4years Any insight please

  14. Wowswers! My natal Mars is 19’48, and natal Castor is 19’57. I could sure use the healing and new love! IF Pluto is opposite, that makes the T-Square a full Square. I suppose you don’t work with configurations, do you? Does the MArs conjunction add Martian energy to this? I know you don’t deal with houses, but this is in my second house. Thanks in advance!!
    Jennifer in AZ

    • Pluto, always about resources, money for you in second house. Pluto opposite your Mars, look it up, its been at your Mars since last year exact so pushing, pushing all the time. If Pluto in eighth house, other peoples resources, money and death issues. Rebirths. Saturn opposite your Mars always look at your money. Mars says spend and Saturn says says wait and consider, do you really need this.?

    • I don’t use Houses Jennifer. My eldest girl has Mars conjunct Castor too. Robson said it causes an “Evil disposition” but he wrote that in the 1920’s in London when everything fun was either illegal or despised by the Church. I do wonder though if Mars with Castor is why my eldest girl suffers panic attacks. She does have a tendency to tease her siblings but does deeply love them. She has also been severely bullied at school. So bad we had to relocate to a different town.

      • Hello Jamie, Try The Charles Linden course which you download for your daughter. Tell her from me that it really really works, if she read his story of years of misery!!! I bought it years ago and when I can’t breathe or sleep it always works. And, no Jamie darling its not her Mars conjunct Castor, its just that her perceptions need resetting. It’s bloody difficult for most people now in the world and for the young its very unnatural compared to your or mine childhoods. ps. I bought it for my adult sons and yes it did work for them.

      • sorry to hear that she’s been bullied but with supporting parents and will you know she Will and is ok

  15. Does this eclipse affect someone whose Sun is at 24º Cancer?

    • If you are anything like me you have been feeling Pluto opposite your Sun since early 2017. Jamie is right is does make you feel neurotic and its about Money, Death, Power or total lack of it, Insurance policies, looking at being on your own after the death of someone close(in any type of partnership) including work. Once you face it and realise you can only do so much, you can deal with anything. However, I have looked at many peoples charts that I know the history of and for my father it bought the birth of his first grandchild, Pluto exactly opposite his Sun. I would love to know if that fits your feelings. Don’t forget Saturn is also in Capricorn now since Mid Winters day last year, Saturn does not like you wasting money and resources so I feel backs up the Pluto feeling. Consolidate anything and everything you can, but you are not in control of it all. The governments are.!!! The banks are. Uranus in Taurus earth trine, but will sextile your Sun in time (nice) everything will change with security, food, and money inflation issues. You can only do what you can and that is where astrology is helpful instead of frightening. It gives you a modicum of foresight.

      • Thanks, Linnywalker. I have been under a square from Uranus too, but some of the events of the last months, like loosing the job (and getting another one), fit Pluto. Feelings related to Pluto/Scorpio have been more intense lately too.

        • Hi Sophia, Loosing your job and getting another one. That is a real positive. Jupiter in Scorpio does make everything super intense, and the square of Uranus, yep, the urge to be free, But, do not throw the baby out with the bath water, haha. If you live in UK, the TSB bank is a perfect example of chaos for the poor people who have lost their money through TSB and their computer glitch, Uranus in Taurus, BUT, us Cancerians do have positives on this eclipse, the beautiful earth trine, now that is really good. None of us can stop the meglomaniacs who rule us except by demonstrating peacefully, and that is coming. Pluto does not like to give up control (Scorpio). Look after yourself as much as you able and just give in(Pluto) and watch yours and the world turn. I will just say that because you might feel powerless that is just a feeling. Always look at your chart and see where your progressed Sun, Jupiter and Venus is. They tell the stories in your life. The worst part of being a Cancer Sun is that we FEEL everything and won’t let go.!!! If you don’t know how to do your own chart send me your details. Love and Light to you Sophia. Lynne xxx

          • Lynne, thank you for your advices. 🙂 Why do you pay more attention to progressed Jupiter and Venus than to progressed Mercury and Mars? Love and light to you too!

    • Not so strongly Sophia as I usually stick to a 2 degree orb but I think you will feel some effect.

  16. Jamie what’s the orb you use for eclipses to Natal planets? 3 degrees?

    • I go up to 2 degrees for eclipses but it depends on the planet and aspect involved. Say for a trine to Pluto I would stick to 1 degree. but square Sun 2 degrees.

  17. I waited for a reply is it that scary that I do not have a comment a reply I am really getting worried now. Is there anyone who can really help out with some insight please.

    • Patience reetah, i have a lot of comments to answer but my first priority is clients who have paid for readings.

  18. thank you so much Jamie for your quick answer. Yes my solar return chart was cast that is the reason I gave you 21degrees leo ascendant which happens to be same on my first radix house. 3rd fenruary 1952

  19. Jamie how would it effect me having 20degrees in Aries sun progress in 9th house. This eclipse is a bit of a worry if it is square from 20degrees cancer

    • I would not be concerned about transits to your progressed chart. Focus on transits to your natal chart.

  20. dear Jamiie would it effect me if it is sqaure to my progress sun 20degrees aries the eclipse is going to fall in my 12th house squaring my progress sun in the ninth house and progress moon 15degress conjuct saturn radix in my third house from libra

  21. yes my solar return chart is cast for my current location that is my radix asc is 14degrees leo and my solar return chart for my current location ascendant is 21degrees leo and being in the first house is a bit quite tough

    • Using precession correction will totally change your solar return chart Ascendant. I don’t think there is free online software that does that which is a shame because it is way more accurate. You would have to use the Sidereal (Vedic) horoscope to do your transits and solar return to get the same accuracy. Otherwise you could order a solar return reading from me.

  22. Jamie- Do you do chart rectification? My birth certificate doesn’t say. Mom says around 2:30pm– Grandmother’s bible says 4pm…. ugh.

  23. Jamie what’s your opinion, when do transits “hit” in your experience. During its first pass, rx pass, or last pass over a planet or descendant?

  24. Such a beautiful grand trine and it is in my natal chart also! Also my Pluto conj Jupiter is op natal sun. So I know of that energy. Jupiter now sits op my moon so my journey with my elderly (94yo) mother is being guided. My moon has been sq Venus op Mars much of June. Good days bad days. Her birthday is the 17 of July so there is quite a lot of symmetry to our time together. What I am hoping is she is lead into peace and comfort if these are to be her last days.

  25. Dear Jamie
    I just want to tell you that I deeply appreciate your work and fantastic blog.You wrote about your health issues – I wish your all the best and I send you all positive vibrations. I have been working in hospital with oncology patients for nearly 20 years.I hope you have enough support and rest and love to recover as fast and as good as possible????

    • Thank you Alice. I am back at home now and everything went well. I had keyhole surgery for a right upper lobectomy. The tumor was only 1.3 cm (½ inch) so should not need chemo or anything else. I am so lucky I have regular scans to catch these things early.

  26. Hi Jamie, this eclipse will be conjunct my natal North node in Cancer (21 deg 52 min), opposing natal Venus (26 deg 9 min) , and squaring my natal Mars Saturn Pluto conjunction (all 3 retrograde). I have a T-square natally with these 3 points – it’s been a brutal life in some ways, to say the least.

    I don’t know much about eclipses hitting patterns in the natal chart, but I can see this will be almost directly squaring my natal Saturn and Mars. How will this affect me since it is aligning with the natal T-square I have? And what can I do to reduce any possible difficult effects? I’m trying to be brave.

    • Oops, sorry meant to say – Natal Venus is in Capricorn at 26 degrees. That’s why its opposing my NN

  27. Hi Jamie, you say that this eclipse will last until the next eclipse of 11august, so only 1month, i don’t understand that. It doesn’t last 6 months because there is an other solar eclipse after? I saw mercury retrograde will be at the same degree for the 2eclipses, do you Think is linked(solar eclipse 13july is the consequences of solar eclipse 11august)?

    • Good Point June. Yes everything is linked and Mercury makes these ones more so. If the first solar eclipse make a strong aspect to your chart and the second one does not, then perhaps the effects of the first one could last longer.

      • Hi Jamie! You always seem to accurately be able to tell what events could be triggered whereas other astrologers really don’t nail it on the head. So I can understand better, you seem to take the full/new moon and see what planet it hits. For example, If the solar eclipse hits my natal moon by a square (and tight enough orb), it will then trigger my natal moon’s natal aspects (my natal moon is closely trine my sun) and you say that is the aspect we should look up and any other aspects that are not as tight to my natal moon. However, how is it different when the say solar eclipse squares my moon as opposed to conjuncts my natal moon. Wouldn’t it trigger the same natal moon trine natal sun? Or if the eclipse opposes my natal moon, it’ll still trigger my natal moon trine natal sun.. right? So what am I missing you think in understanding what events could occur?

  28. My birthday is on 10 july and sun is in 18 degree … i guess eclipse will happen with in 2 degree of my sun …plz help me ????

    How this eclipse change my life for better or worse need help ..????

    last time i guess eclipse happen in these degrees in 2010 …anyone remember what happend than ??


    Solar Eclipse Jul 11 2010 19° Cancer 24′

    i read somewhere if ECLIPSE happen near BIRTHDAY than it will gives effect hole year .. otherwise eclipses gives effect untill next eclipse happen

    • It depends, do you accepting “doomsday” with open arms or not? I suggest with open arms would be better

    • You have a lot of trines coming (positive) , life is just a huge learning curve. You have done the worst bit in 2011. Don’t think Doomsday, just keep going and look for the good bits, no matter what., the more you think pluto shit will happen, the more it will. Us Cancerians worry about everyone and everything. And my birthday is the 13th!!!!! And, whatever happened on eclipses then will usually be completely the opposite. Try and keep debts down, thats the biggy. xxx

  29. Hi Jamie, I’m 40 weeks pregnant & due to pop art any moment. How is this partial solar eclipse likely to effect both the birth (either before or after) & the personality traits of my child?
    I’ve a few concerns about Pluto & really hoping the labour is a smooth one.

    • Dear Kellie, You will only care about YOUR baby, thats number one. And, my grandson born Sun opposite Pluto 2009 and he is the loveliest boy, Cancer/Capricorn. My husband born Sun exact opposite Pluto, single minded according to signs. The Star of David is in the sky on 13th, earth and water trine, the lunar eclipse is a generally a females life/home totally changing, so, life will never be the same again, and it won’t!!! Good Luck to you Kellie. Let us know. xxx Remember that the Sun is always the most powerful in anyone’s life, its the force. Your child will have Venus in front of the Sun, and that is good, good, good. The ONLY important thing in life is the total love of your parents whilst growing up, not many get that.

  30. Hi, Jamie, my natal Moon is in 6th house at 23 degrees in Capricorn in conjunction with transiting Pluto, and this eclipse is in opposition to both. How can this affect me? I’ve already passed hard times with my emotions sice two years ago, and this scares me

  31. Hi i am cancer born, 29 june 1992. How this eclipse will effect me going through a hard time.

  32. This New Moon is a big one for me. My father has Pluto at 20 degrees Cancer in the 5th House of one’s children. He was an abusive parent. The New Moon falls on his Pluto with transiting Pluto in opposition. This morning I am beginning a dry fast (no food, no water). I am living in my father’s home. He is now 86 years old. This morning when I walked into the living room, I could hear the voice on the television program my father was watching. It was a woman talking about her eating disorder. She said something about how she thought she was “better than other people” if she didn’t eat, and that she would fast and then binge and purge, and that the voice of her eating disorder “was so powerful that…” I left the room before she finished her sentence.

    My father is an “expert” in nutrition, with a PhD in biochemistry and a degree in nutrition (I forget exactly what those letters are). Very conventional. He is strongly opposed to fasting. Can people heal through fasting? According to him, it is far too dangerous.

    I have said nothing to him about my intention to fast, nor will I. It is not open for discussion. No comment. Period. Sometimes silence is golden.

    Transiting Uranus and Saturn are now forming a Grand Trine with my Pluto-Mercury-Pallas-Venus stellium in Virgo. Transiting Chiron is in a Yod with my Virgo stellium which is sextile Jupiter-Neptune in Scorpio. Neptune is conjunct my Midheaven. And Transiting Pluto is trine my Sun.

    Suddenly, I am able to see the future. Not clearly, but the pieces are rapidly coming together. Surprisingly, Jamie Oliver is a key player. Jamie has Venus at 19Can40, so this eclipse is conjunct his Venus, urging transformation of his values. My Saturn is at 19Sag27 inconjunct Jamie’s Venus, highlighting the imbalance between my philosophy and Jamie’s values-from-the-PAST. But guess what! Jamie is now in the midst of his Uranus opposite Uranus mid-life crisis. Sudden change is in the air. Be prepared to be surprised! While my Saturn is inconjunct Jamie’s Venus, it is also sextile his Ascendant at 19Lib55. We can work cooperatively together. My Mars is at 27Tau58 sextile Jamie’s Midheaven at 26Can27 and Jamie’s Vesta is at 18Pis54 conjunct my Midheaven. Jamie’s Pisces Vesta is perhaps the most telling of all. He will be willing to make sacrifices for the fulfillment of my goals and visions.

    Still, I wouldn’t believe it but for the clear directions from my spiritual guides. Jamie cooks meat! His friend, Jimmy, raises animals for food! Ah, but they are REFORMERS. To be an effective reformer, you have to know the system inside and out.

  33. My uncle’s Sun and Venus are at 14 degrees Cancer. When Pluto opposed the Sun during this eclipse he died yesterday shortly after midnight, aged 70. Major transit… body functions had just switched off without major reason: heart attack, stroke, high level of inflammation, then kidneys stopped working.

    • Dear linnywalker
      Thank you. He was excellent doctor who had worked almost until his last days . He probably helped tens of thousands of people. I am sure he will get a great new incarnation.
