Lunar Eclipse

Definition of Lunar Eclipse

Unlike a solar eclipse which happens during the daytime, a lunar eclipse happens at night. This is when the Earth’s shadow blocks the Sun’s light from shining on the full Moon.

There are three types of lunar eclipses. A total lunar eclipse is the most dramatic, and this is when the whole Moon is covered by the Earth’s shadow, and seems to glow an eerie crimson.

A partial lunar eclipse happens when the Earth and the Moon are not quite lined up for total coverage. Lunar eclipses can bring you an understanding of your shadow side (your less desirable characteristics) and bring you deep insights about yourself and your life.

There’s also a penumbral lunar eclipse, but these are of little focus and have little impact on either the way the Moon looks, or your astrology chart.

Mutable Grand Cross

A Grand Cross is a planetary alignment in the astrology chart. It consists of four planets at 90-degree angles with each other and each being in a different astrological quality. Every sign of the zodiac is either cardinal, mutable, or fixed. Therefore, a Grand Cross happens when all four planets involved are in the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. This brings a very different energy to the Grand Cross than say a Cardinal Grand Cross or a Fixed Grand Cross, for the mutable energy is probably the most congenial of the three, even though Grand Crosses can be challenging enough in and of themselves.
