August Eclipses 2017

Eclipses come in pairs.  This month of August holds a lunar eclipse on the 7th and a solar eclipse on the 21st.

The lunar eclipse on August 7th takes place at 15° Aquarius.  If you have planets around 15° of the fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius, you’ll be feeling this one strongly.  Lunar eclipses affect the emotional body.  Since the lunar eclipse comes first, watch for emotional clues of what might be brewing for the solar eclipse that will follow two weeks later.  If you don’t know which houses are ruled by Leo (position of the lunar eclipse Sun) and Aquarius (position of the lunar eclipse Moon), go to astro.com where you can create a free chart.  The houses will show you where the activity of the eclipses will usher changes in your life.
