Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio 2022 in T-Square with Saturn

Reading Time : 6 minutes

On May 16th we are going to have the second and last eclipse of the first season of the year. This is going to be a Total Lunar Eclipse, taking place at 25° 17′ Scorpio. The first was a Partial Solar Eclipse in Taurus, and it was the new moon of the current lunation. This lunar eclipse instead is its full moon.

In general a solar eclipse affects the human willing. This is because the beginning of the lunation, the new moon, is dark and unconscious as the forces of our will. As we know from Anthroposophy human beings “are sleeping in their willing”.

A lunar eclipse instead affects mainly the human thinking. Thoughts are the result of the reflection in the brain of the imaginative etheric thinking. This reflecting activity belongs to the lunar forces, especially when the Moon is full. Simply put, the etheric thinking of the heart-Sun is reflected by the brain-Moon.

Since lunar eclipses occur during a full moon, they mainly affect our thinking. Steiner said that the cone of shadow that the Earth cast on the Moon during the eclipse allows nasty astral influences to pour into the earth. You can think of it as an upside down funnel, creating an opening for harmful entities. Hence, we want to take particular care of our thinking during a moon eclipse.

Jupiter in Aries 2022 and its Aspects with Pluto and Mars

Reading Time : 5 minutes

Jupiter is the planet of spiritual wisdom. In the first months of 2022 we discussed about his journey through Pisces, his nocturnal domicile. We’ve been talking about the harmonizing effect that the Great Benefic has tried to bring tirelessly to the world. Was his impulse for compassion enough to awaken our consciousness?

Now it looks like the tide is about to turn. Too many astrological events are converging. The eclipses are going to start soon, right during the second Mercury retrograde period. And on May 11, Jupiter is going to leave Pisces, staying in Aries until late November.

But what happens when the planet of Wisdom enters the zodiac sign of the Warrior during such a turbulent time? Let’s take a look at the general meaning of Jupiter in Aries.

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini 2022 and the Eclipses

Reading Time : 5 minutes

As we discussed in the previous post Eclipse season one is going to start on April 30th. And we’ve seen how its main challenges are going to mainly focus on resources. However, we’ve also been talking about a more interior, psychological component. I’m referring to the planets in Pisces, that are going to give the eclipse a strong idealistic component.

In Anthroposophical terms, we are going to be dealing with the Luciferic forces. These forces seduce the human being with strong, one-sided, spiritual impulses. All spiritual communities should be very aware that “too much light” is as dangerous as “too much darkness”. And the social damages of a one-sided spiritual attitude are there for all to see.

In order not to get blinded by the mirages of the mind, we can prepare for these events. We can use Mercury retrograde as an opportunity to process the issues of the eclipses. In fact, when Mercury is retrograde the cosmic Mind turns within. Similarly, we can distance ourselves from the world to see things more clearly.

And as we are going to see, this Mercury retrograde is especially tied up with the second eclipse of May 16th.

Solar Eclipse in Taurus 2022 in Conjunction with Uranus

Reading Time : 6 minutes

So far, 2022 has been a very eventful year. It started with the appearance of a comet, which is always a sign of upcoming challenges for humanity. In addition, the first months of the year were marked by two stelliums in Capricorn. They brought both a feeling of heaviness and a prolonged cold season.

Yes, the balancing forces of Jupiter in Pisces have been inspiring us with the spiritual virtue of compassion. But that has mainly focused on the terrible war in Ukraine.

And now eclipse season is coming, a time of the year when karmic forces of change are released. Season one starts with a Partial Solar Eclipse in Taurus, which is a new moon. Immediately followed by a Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, the full Moon of the same lunation.

This means that May is going to be an extremely dense month. Not only the two main phases of the lunation, new moon and full moon, are going to be eclipses. But we’re also going to have Jupiter’s ingress in Aries on May 11th, and Mercury Retrograde between Gemini and Taurus.

As we’ve said in the Astrology of 2022, this year focuses mainly on both the Air and Earth Elements. And all this emphasis on Taurus is now going to inevitably involve Uranus.

The Jupiter-Neptune Conjunction 2022 — Beginning of a New Spiritual Cycle

Reading Time : 4 minutes

Much has been said about Jupiter in Pisces after the war broke out in Ukraine. How is it possible for such horrible things to happen during a benefic transit like that?

Jupiter is the so called Great Benefic, and in Pisces it’s in his domicile. This means that his influence is remarkably strong. So it’s perfectly normal to argue that under his wings humanity should feel safe and not on the edge of World War III.

We spoke favorably about it too, describing it as the Great Cosmic Harmonizer in this post. And we do not intend to take that back—the influence of Jupiter is certainly beneficial. So why is this horrendous scenario taking place?

The first thing that I’d like to highlight is that things could have been much worse. In general we tend to focus on bad things because they always come with drama. They get our attention easily, and media speculate on it.
