Two eclipses impact on you this month, but you have all the energy and help you need to deal with them. Even though your health is excellent, however, it won’t hurt to reduce your busy schedule over the eclipse periods.

The Lunar Eclipse of the 7th occurs in your 7th house of love and tests the current relationship. Generally this testing arises as old baggage – long-repressed grievances (real or imagined) – come to the surface to be dealt with. Sometimes the relationship gets tested because of life-changing dramas in the life of the beloved. Either way, a good relationship will withstand the stresses and get better. It is the flawed ones that are vulnerable. Sometimes singles will decide to change their marital status under this kind of eclipse. They want to take their relationship on to the next stage.

Every Lunar Eclipse will activate the dream life – and generally not in a good way. Don’t pay too much attention to this. The eclipse is stirring up the astral world and this gets reflected in your dream life. Every Lunar Eclipse produces spiritual changes – dramatic ones. Course corrections are needed in the spiritual life, a change of teachings and practice perhaps. There are shakeups and disruptions in spiritual or charitable organizations and guru figures in your life, and in your place of worship. Mars is affected strongly by this eclipse. Avoid foreign travel during this period. College or graduate-level students tend to make important changes to their educational plans. Legal issues can take a dramatic turn – one way or another.

The Solar Eclipse of the 21st affects you more intensely. It not only impacts on the ruler of your Horoscope, the Sun, but also occurs in your 1st house (close to the cusp of the 2nd). So once again, as in February, you’re forced by events to redefine yourself. Once again you will be changing your image, look and presentation to the world. You will think differently of yourself and thus will want others to think differently of you as well. This will go on for another six months – it is a process rather than a one-off event.

As in February, detoxes of the body can happen – especially if you haven’t been careful in dietary matters. The body throws off effete material. Since this eclipse is so close to the cusp of the money house, important financial changes are happening. However, as your financial planet is retrograde at this point, consider these changes carefully. It might be better to plan them now and put them into action next month, when Mercury moves forward again (on September 5). You are entering (on the 22nd) a yearly financial peak. Thus the changes are likely to be good – helpful.

Love is stormy early in the month (because of the eclipse) but gets better later. There is good harmony with the beloved, and the Solar Eclipse can also bring a happy romantic meeting. But your love planet, Uranus, is retrograde (from the 3rd onwards), so go slow in love. There’s no need to rush into anything.
