Your 11th house of friendship became powerful on the 23rd of last month and is powerful until the 23rd of this. So you are in a strong social period. The natural consequence of career success is an enhanced social life. You meet new people at the top, people of like mind and like interests. You learn the value of friendships and networking. The friends that you meet now are people who support your fondest hopes and wishes. This is the definition of friendship from the astrological perspective. A person who smiles and seems friendly but doesn't wish those things for you is not a real friend.
On the 23rd, as the Sun enters your 12th house, you enter one of the most spiritual periods of your year. Nearly half of the planets will be in this house or moving through there this month.
But the main headline for this month is the two eclipses that happen in it. These always produce dramas in the world.
Lunar Eclipse of the 8th occurs in your 5th house of fun and creativity
and affects the children or children figures in your life. They will be making important personal changes over the next six months. They are redefining themselves, their personalities and self-concept. They will eventually present a whole new image to the world. In the meantime, do your best to keep them out of harm's way during this period. They should avoid risky kinds of activities. This eclipse impacts on both Uranus and Pluto, but more directly on Uranus. Thus cars and communication equipment get tested and often there is a need for replacements. It will be a good idea to drive more carefully this period, more mindfully and more defensively.
The impact on Pluto affects the spiritual life – your attitudes, approach, practice and teachings. These get 'reality checked'. Important changes will happen here in the coming months. Every Lunar Eclipse brings psychological encounters with death. Sometimes people have dreams about it. Sometimes they have 'close calls' – near-death kinds of experiences. People in your life who are teetering on the verge between life and death will often choose to depart on a Lunar Eclipse. The eclipse sort of 'pushes them over the edge'. Your spouse, partner or current love has a temporary financial crisis and is forced to make important changes.
Solar Eclipse of the 23rd occurs in your 12th house of spirituality and
reinforces the spiritual changes brought on by the Lunar Eclipse. This
can also bring dramas, shake-ups and upheavals in spiritual
organizations that you are involved with, and in the lives of gurus or
spiritual mentors. Every Solar Eclipse tests your religious and philosophical beliefs. It is good that twice a year you get a chance to upgrade and refine this area. The
true beliefs – those that are congruent to reality – will hold up, but
the other ones – the ones that are sometimes true, partially true or
untrue – get revised or discarded. College students make important changes to their educational plans.
Gratuitous foreign travel should be avoided during this eclipse period.
