If this Lunar eclipse conjuncts a planet in your chart, you may feel its intensity more than others. If the Lunar Eclipse conjuncts your Sun, for example, it can act like a charge of energy. The desire --or necessity-- to turn over a new leaf is strong. A significant other or the public can play a large role in the events of your life now. In major aspect to the Moon, a Lunar Eclipse can trigger major changes to your living situation and personal life, including personal relationships. Circumstances that significantly change your daily routine and domestic world can arise.
Possible issues for the eclipse's transit to natal houses: A Lunar Eclipse in the first house, it may be time to change your image or redefine your personality in some manner. Finding a balance between autonomy and dependence is what this eclipse is about for you. Your emotions are on your sleeve right now. It is a good time to put your needs first, but doing so with respect for others will take you further. Whether you can succeed as a leader is "tested" right now. There may be some drama involving a significant other. A Lunar Eclipse in the second house, you may get a cosmic push to make necessary financial changes in your life. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power--what's yours and what's mine. Your comfort zones matter, and now is the time to take care of your own needs without eclipsing the needs of others. A financial settlement, the beginning or end of a particular debt, and other such scenarios can be part of the picture now. A Lunar Eclipse in the third house, there may be some sort of drama surrounding communication, modes of transportation, schooling, mobility, neighbors, or siblings. Daily routines can change dramatically. There may be a major event in the life of a sibling. There could be a publishing offer or you might be in a position to promote yourself. Travel or education plans may come to fruition. You might gain an entirely different perspective on a matter. A Lunar Eclipse in the fourth house, domestic conditions are illuminated. House repairs, family dramas, and other such issues need serious attention. The demands of your personal life are now paramount. Striking a balance between energy spent on work and energy spent on domestic matters is essential now. Balanced attention to your public and personal lives is what you need to focus on. It's time to prioritize. A major career project can come to fruition or completion. A Lunar Eclipse in the fifth house, a romantic affair may be tested. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now, or a child could be experiencing a major new beginning. Some might have a child. A new creative project might begin now. A Lunar Eclipse in the sixth, there could be changes necessary in your job or health routines. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you know you have to do in order to feel more balanced. A work project or a job itself can begin or end now. A physical or mental health issue might come to light.
A Lunar Eclipse in the seventh house, partnerships may be tested, but there is nothing to fear if the relationship is strong. The seventh house represents an important one-to-one relationship--a marriage partner, significant other, business partner, or an adversary. It's time to strike a balance between your own needs and those of another. It's time to compromise and negotiate. You might suddenly find yourself with more social opportunities, or you might acquire many new clients. A Lunar Eclipse in the eighth house, some drama with regards to a spouse's income, or your taxes, debts, and investments, may occur on a mundane level. It may be time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. There can be new money coming into your life. A Lunar Eclipse in the ninth house, your personal beliefs may be tested. Your hunger for adventure or learning may come into focus. All of the attention you've been giving to mundane affairs has you wondering when you're going to have some fun. You want to take a leap of faith now. There may be an important beginning or culmination in education. If you are in business, a writer, or the like, you might reach a wider audience. A Lunar Eclipse in the tenth house, you may need to review and change your career goals. Career matters come to a head, but as the seventh house from the fourth, so might a personal, domestic, family, or house and home matter. You're called to perform, possibly on a moment's notice, and it's best to keep your cool and do whatever you can to show your competence. A Lunar Eclipse in the eleventh house, friendships may be tested, or your relationship to groups or organizations. You're looking for validation from friends and group activities now. There can be a major event involving a child or a romantic partner, or a culmination of a creative project can occur at this time. A Lunar Eclipse in the twelfth house, you may recognize an overwhelming need for rest and spiritual renewal. You've been busy with all sorts of everyday activities, deeply involved in your work and routines. It's time to balance your life with some down time--otherwise, you simply don't feel whole. There can be exposure of a private or even clandestine matter in some cases. Secrets can emerge at this time. A work project can come to fruition.
General: The Meaning of the New Moon in the Houses
The following interpretations come from the Day Watch report. See our interpretations of the New Moon in houses here.
New Moon in 1st House This New Moon marks a time of personal beginnings, when you find yourself shot into the limelight and all eyes turn toward you to see what you're going to do next. This may be somewhat startling, as it's rather different than what last month brought, and you will need to step up and display your self-confidence in a way that wasn't called on before. In a volatile situation you will need to have your wits about you as you will have a particularly high profile. The trick is to handle it with grace and not let it go to your head, as this too shall pass and you'll want to look back on a performance that maximized the opportunities dropped into your lap.
New Moon in 2nd House For a day or so you may be under pressure to underwrite new projects or finance situations that require sinking money into them. It may seem quite urgent, but it's a time when everything seems a bit more intense, so you may do well to stand back and take a second look before jumping in with both feet. Wise investments made at this time can bring good returns in the next couple of weeks, but ill-conceived spending could drain you in the same time period. Know you're right, then go ahead one way or the other, as the one option you probably won't have is sitting on the fence or putting it all off until later. Strike when the iron is hot or pass the opportunity on to another.
New Moon in 3rd House A flurry of activity for several days can have the phone ringing off the hook as new ideas and propositions that require either your opinion or your decision come your way. Your challenge will be sorting the wheat from the chaff on the fly, and sorting out the confusion that always abounds at New Moon, especially this one. The day is won by multiple, smaller choices made wisely, rather than hanging on a single issue, so don't obsess but decide quickly and move right along to the next. This is a great time for currying new acquaintances as the air of intensity makes for strong personal connections and breaks through the barriers of unfamiliarity.
New Moon in 4th House This may mark a day or so of raised tensions at home as biological tides run high and elbow room seems harder to come by. However, used creatively, this can lead to new ways of organizing and arranging your personal space so it doesn't overlap that of others. It's a good time to start new home-related projects as a way to utilize the extra energy in a constructive manner. Letting out your deeper expressions of feeling to another can make things especially intimate right now, but make sure you express yourself clearly and are not misunderstood. The perfect time to feel "at home" with someone, either literally or figuratively. The only thing you'll not want to be is idle�the vibes are too intense to just sit on your hands.
New Moon in 5th House Find a party to go to, give one, or just party down where you stand�the astral weather is perfect for it. In fact, anything you do for enjoyment will seem twice as good right now. Play with your children, or just break out the inner child, as you can more easily part with self-consciousness and spontaneity breaks out, well, spontaneously! If you call on the muse for a creative project, she will definitely show up (muses love parties, and children), and you'll find that your juices flow faster and easier than usual. There can be a fine line between joyous adventure and risky behavior, however, so try to stay on the safe side of the line. A good time to engage, but not be, a designated driver both literally and figuratively, so that you can be safely irresponsible for a while.
New Moon in 6th House A good time to take your blood pressure�if it's not elevated now, you're in really good shape. It can be easy to get worried about health matters now, but moderation is the right response. The temptation to throw yourself into a new regimen may run high, but choose your new path well before you embark or it will be a flash in the pan. The same goes for cleaning house in the workplace and starting off on a fresh footing. Make sure you're not demanding too much of yourself in the long run�you will not always have this much drive, and you don't want to peter out because you can't keep up with yourself. A good program is determined by whether you can keep it going on an off day.
New Moon in 7th House: This is a particularly ripe couple of days for finding a new partner or turning over a new leaf with an old partner. You may find a flood of emotional intensity coming your way and how you utilize it could largely shape the direction of the relationship. That means be particularly understanding and realize that though feelings may be overstated at this time and emotions run hot, the message underneath is sincere and needs to be taken seriously. Breakthroughs can occur now that you both might have kept a lid on otherwise, and you'll be glad you achieved the new closeness, even though you may not be able to keep it going at that level of intensity all month.
New Moon in 8th House You may find turning over a new leaf this month entails tossing out the old and ringing in the new, but you should take a second look before doing that. What you may find much more satisfactory is to simply rework and refurbish what is already there. Sometimes a new paint job makes everything new again, so you don't have to start over from scratch. They don't make things like they used to, so preserve what you can. It's also a good time to initiate that new credit card, but avoid impulse buying, as it's easy to go overboard right about now. Ditto for mortgage or other loans -- a good starting time, but just take what you need and no more.
New Moon in 9th House It's a great time for planning, cooking up new schemes, or rearranging the way you look at things. Patterns you establish now do not need detailed follow-up until later, so you can stick to generalities until you've got it all properly roughed-out. Put on the finishing touches later. New publishing efforts, or any project that generally disseminates what you have to say, are well begun now, and you may find the pressure is on to produce. Avoid hasty commitments, however, as you don't want to be held to something ill-considered or not fully thought out. Well begun is half done, so be thoughtful, deliberate, and measured in your efforts, even though tempted or even encouraged not to be.
New Moon in 10th House New developments in career matters may have you quite wound up for a couple of days and the pressure to produce can be intense. Too many things happening at once make it hard to keep track of things, but you can't afford to leave anything out. It is as important to listen at this time as to act. What people are saying to you and about you very much reflects your personal and professional status and you will want to make sure that you are being represented honestly. If you give your r�sum� a second look, you'll find there are new things to say about yourself that need to be included. Taking a fresh stance can put you into new places, move you up a notch.
New Moon in 11th House Feelings run high among close friends and an intensity is available right now that can renew the love and passion that first fueled your relationships. It can be worth risking upset to get at what you are really feeling and share it with those that matter the most. Because there's a crazy atmosphere surrounding it all, you can say things you might have hesitated to bring up and wear your heart on your sleeve without worrying about the outcome. The same ability to burst out of your shell will also aid in getting yourself into new company you might have thought didn't care about you before. An approach of disarming honesty can make you welcome in unexpected places and bring you valuable allies.
New Moon in the 12th House Eruptions of the unconscious could bring both troubles and personal revelations to the surface right now, so you may want to be careful not to betray secrets or let the cat out of the bag prematurely. Don't say the first thing that comes to mind, or you may give away more than you intend to. New deals are being struck behind the scenes with a strong sense of urgency, but they are not necessarily justified, so watch that you don't climb aboard the wrong bandwagon right now. Wait until things come out into the open to make decisions, take sides, even though there appears to be advantage in secrecy. Open covenants, openly arrived at, are the better part of honor.
General: The Meaning of the Full Moon in the Houses
The following interpretations come from the Day Watch report. See our interpretations of the Full Moon in the houses here.
Full Moon in 1st House For a day or so you may find things get fairly wacky in your surroundings, and one of the causes may be you. The time is right (and the pressure is on) to bring critical projects to a conclusion, put on finishing touches, and show the world just what you're all about. The emphasis is not so much on what you've done, but rather who you are, and it's the right time to let your personality out of the box and shine, shine, shine. The whole set of circumstances may have you a little giddy, but that's part of the surrounding picture at Full Moon, and this is your time to take a ride on that energy and put your personal mark on what comes of it.
Full Moon in 2nd House Under a little more intensity than usual, it's time to wrap things up financially, collect on projects that have come to fruition, and generally tie up loose ends. That should mean ending extra spending for a time, as it will be less necessary, but that's hard to do on a Full Moon, when things are a little crazy and judgment isn't always on the mark. Still, put your focus on that last payment, that final accessory, as the appropriate approach is to round out what you have done, put on the final touches, and then showcase it. It's a time to show off what you've got and make the most of it, not keep piling it on. You should concentrate on reaping its rewards.
Full Moon in 3rd House Don't everybody talk at once! That's what you're likely to be saying as the volume level around you peaks and everybody is trying to get a message through, including yourself. Full Moon is like that in general, but this time it can be especially wordy as you try to finish up a lot of correspondence and tie up loose ends as the links you have established begin to really amount to something. That means crowding a lot of important last-minute things into the space of a few days, so don't over schedule yourself in advance. Leave plenty of room open for last-minute situations that come rushing in and demand equal attention. Concentrate on matters that require conclusion and closure right now; save your new ideas for later when they can get proper attention.
Full Moon in 4th House You may find you could use a little more space at home as everyone there, including yourself, is taking up a lot more psychic space than usual right now. That can be claustrophobic and you can get on each other's nerves�or you can use it as the opportunity to connect more by opening that personal space and letting people in. Or, you can just get out of the house and take a break from it all. Whatever you choose, you will find yourself with matters coming to a head and you'll be making conclusions about just how well your internal game plan is working out. Literally and figuratively, good fences make good neighbors, but only when located strategically. Time to finish yours, and test it.
Full Moon in 5th House Spontaneity is the watchword right now, and it's time to kick back and have some fun, especially with close friends and children. If you're at a party and go just a little bit over the top, you will likely be in good company, as this is a general time of celebration for all. Passion and intensity, on any topic you choose, can run rampant and enthusiasm overflows. If you're trying to get business done, you'll be swimming against the tide, so if you have the option, just go with the flow. If you're working on a creative project, make sure you get the product preserved for posterity�on paper, on film, on tape, on CD. If you're just going to be pleasantly out to lunch, don't bother, just enjoy.
Full Moon in 6th House If you aren't finally achieving something from your diet or exercise regimen, ask yourself why not. This is the time you should be really getting things together and it should be starting to pay off. However, avoid excess and going over the top right now, as you may feel you can do more -- and maybe eat more�than you really should. At work, you may feel a little overbooked as tasks multiply and time is short to complete them. Once you've put on the finishing touches, you'll be able to stand back and take pride in your accomplishments. A good time for an office party, if you can concoct a good excuse for one. In general right now, celebrate finished tasks.
Full Moon in 7th House This is a wonderful time to let your partner shine and just lay back and appreciate it all. That can mean enjoying the fruits of your mutual labors wrought by the relationship, or it can mean finally fully connecting with someone you've been developing something special with for a while. In either case, the rewards of connecting closely will take center stage, and you can lean on the familiarity you already have to support what comes next. This can apply equally well in business as in romance, as long as you're dealing with an equal on equal ground. The essence is that you bring things to full bloom right now, so you can begin harvesting what you have sown.
Full Moon in 8th House If you've been chasing down that extra credit line, looking for a better deal on a mortgage or equity loan, this is a likely time to pull it all together, as long as you've got all your ducks in a row. That may mean scrambling for some last minute details or information to make it under a deadline, but there's real potential here. It's also good psychic weather for putting the finishing touches on restoration projects, picking up that antique you've been chasing down, and clearing out the cobwebs that may have been settling on lesser-used items. You'll have the courage to toss out those useless things you've been hoarding, and the burst of freedom will do you good. The theme: finish clearing the decks for action.
Full Moon in 9th House Think big, stretch the imagination, push the envelope of your beliefs and feelings�this Full Moon has the potential to be an eye-opener. The energy is in the air to expand your window on the world, especially where it has been an ongoing operation already in the works. The heady feeling of suddenly having put it all together can have you wondering now what to do with it all, but that will take care of itself down the line. Look for good news on the legal front, as things wrap themselves up and come to a conclusion, but don't count your chickens yet, as it's easy to overestimate right now. Main issues can get resolved now, as all parties are willing to go an extra mile to agree in principle, if not on the details.
Full Moon in 10th House This may be the perfect time to button down career matters that have been under development for a while. Although the pace may be accelerated and last-minute additions come crowding in, you can have a fuller, rosier picture of just where you stand in your profession and what people think of you. Choose this spot for releasing a shotgun blast of self-promotion, whatever it is you do, as public relations has extra carrying power from this Full Moon. The buzz about you comes in a rising crescendo that peaks now, so start figuring out ways to take it to the bank. Although you may be tempted to squirrel yourself away at home, take time out during these few days to wave your own flag.
Full Moon in 11th House Relaxation, comfort with your surroundings, and the warmth and glow of friendship can be the watchwords of this Full Moon, if you're willing to disconnect from the daily grind and tap into your personal happy side for a while. Fine food, pleasant company, tales of shared lives and mutual adventures bring a fullness that makes you realize that the good life is about feelings, not money; friendship, not possessions. Satisfaction comes from just letting things happen for a moment and inviting in the blessings that surround you, despite the rigors of existence. If you want a peak experience, it's in the wings right now, roll it out. Take the time to put the seal on relationships that elevate and support you.
Full Moon in 12th House Although this Full Moon may at times seem to place you between dream and hallucination, it emphasizes the ability to perceive and commune with your inner self in ways you might have been cut off from it. The intensity in the air breaks internal barriers and allows you to heal wounds, now that they have come to light. In more mundane affairs, things being cooked up behind the scenes come to fruition, although you may have to take extra precautions that they don't come into the light, unless you are fully ready to go public with them. Avoid confrontations right now, which will put you at a disadvantage, use subtler means to gain your ends when emotions run high.
