Implication Of The Lunar Eclipse - March 3, 2007
We will have the first lunar eclipse of 2007 on March 3 at approximately 1120 GMT. This eclipse will not be visible in most of the United States. On the East Coast of the United States the penumbra will be visible.In this eclipse the sun will be in Aquarius and the moon in Leo. The sun (ego / Atman) is in place of self-doubt, leading to humility (Aquarius). The moon (Heart / emotions), is in place of self-confidence and projection (Leo).

We will have the first lunar eclipse of 2007 on March 3 at approximately 1120 GMT. This eclipse will not be visible in most of the United States. On the East Coast of the United States the penumbra will be visible.In this eclipse the sun will be in Aquarius and the moon in Leo. The sun (ego / Atman) is in place of self-doubt, leading to humility (Aquarius). The moon (Heart / emotions), is in place of self-confidence and projection (Leo). Yet both of these energies are eclipsed by the luminaries. We are being challenged to universalize our personal power, and orient our consistent actions toward a goal that is beneficial to all. Maintaining our self-esteem and a healthy emotional outlook while willingly subjugating our personal desires is being tested.This brings many possibilities in romantic relationships, because much of the time it is our selfish nature that eclipses our partners needs, and the relationship itself.In this eclipse, the ego is being eclipsed in the sign where we doubt our personal power,
Culturally, this eclipse is a foreshadowing of the next six months, where we will be tested to subjugate our personal needs for more progressive causes and humanistic ones. Perhaps we will finally decided not to eat animals simply because they taste good perhaps we will decide that we can actually ride our bike or walk somewhere rather than waste gasoline. Perhaps we will become more efficient in recycling. Perhaps we will decide the only turn the water on when we need to wash off the toothbrush, rather than leave it running needlessly, mindlessly. Perhaps will turn the light off after we leave the room, etc.
Bringing complexity to this mix is a retrograde Mercury joined the sun. There are some real possibilities for communication mishaps that force these personal and social compromises. In fact, we may be seeing the effects of this placement already. Generally the entire month of an eclipse cycle begins a foreshadowing of the major themes. Notice the stock market corrected itself last week and most shocking of all, Brittany Spears finally checked into rehab. (Then checked out again, or at least thats according to People, Entertainment Tonight had a different story and yes does this mean K-Fed gets the kids now?) oh yes, perhaps we will stop paying attention to silly celebrities and there lives and start paying attention to our own life, spiritual progress and problems.
This eclipse is happening with two exulted planets, Mars and Venus which also foretells in importance on personal issues for the next six months in particular, strengthening both our masculine and feminine natures. Having the courage to know what to fight for and when (Mars) and how to fight and why (Venus) will also be issues on the table.
This particular eclipse also has the ominous possibility of some natural disasters. As with all full moons especially, earthquakes and seismic activity increases around these times. Notice on the south Indian chart to the right, retrograde Saturn and Mars are both very close to the eclipse axis, right next to it. If you visualize the earth in the middle of this chart, youll see every planet except Jupiter and Venus are either joined the sun and moon or in the adjacent sign.
In this case there are three planets on one side of the earth and four planets on the other side of the earth. Each of them asserting their gravitational force in opposite directions. This gravitational force tends to open the tectonic plates in the earths crust, which leads to seismic activity.
This weekend we could see some major seismic activity: earthquakes, volcanoes, etc.
