Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse of March 3, 2007

The full Moon on March 3 will also be a total lunar eclipse at 13° Virgo. You can read more about my analysis of the lunar eclipse and its effect on Iraq. However, we also need to look at the effect of the eclipse on individual and national horoscopes.

Below is the full Moon/lunar eclipse chart set for Washington, DC:

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse March 3, 2007, Washington, DC

We see that the eclipse is angular and because it is right on the ascendant/descendant axis, it will not be visible in DC. However, this does not mean that the eclipse will be without effects in the United States; in fact, when we see that an eclipse is on the first/seventh house axis, it can affect the given country powerfully. This axis concerns primarily the people of a nation rather than its rulers, as the people of the country are shown by the first house and the rulers by the 10th.

The ruler of this lunation is Mercury, which is retrograde and in the malefic sixth house, but at least it is in its own triplicity, so it is not entirely without its virtue. Mercury also rules the first house of the people and the 10th house of the rulers. Its next aspect will be an opposition to a very nasty Saturn retrograde in the 12th house. Saturn also disposits this afflicted Mercury, and thus has power over it.

The sixth house as such can indicate disease or enslavement. This eclipse may bring these issues to light, particularly as they affect the American population at large. We also note that the applying Jupiter-Saturn trine falls in the fourth and 12th houses. I would take this as a general indication of important political shifts affecting the US population as a whole.

This full Moon/lunar eclipse chart is not particularly auspicious, with its emphasis on the sixth and 12th houses, both of which are highly malefic.

Effects of the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse of 3/3/07 on Individual Horoscopes

If an eclipse falls within a degree or two of important points in your natal chart, you may feel some effects. The exact nature and duration of the effects will have to do with the strength or weakness of the natal points that the eclipse activates. Therefore, if your horoscope shows that you will win a lot of money in the national lottery, an eclipse triggering some sensitive point in your chart may well set that event in motion. On the other hand, if your horoscope shows a tendency toward violent mental illness, an eclipse may presage a serious attack. As a result, it is impossible to tell the exact effect of an eclipse on your chart without first having thoroughly analyzed the horoscope.

In the absence of a complete natal workup, one easy way to tell the general nature of a certain point in your horoscope is to examine how your life has been affected in the past when those points were contacted by transit or secondary progression. As an example, if you have noticed that every time your Sun is triggered, you receive some money, then we would assume that an eclipse contacting that same Sun would have a similar and powerful effect.

    What is the effect of the lunar eclipse conjunct my Jupiter in the second house.

    Tell me what you think: the eclipse at 13 is trine my ninth house sun from the first. The sun is within a degree of my Chiron in the seventh. Uranus has been sextiling my sun lately. I feel great, energized, and have just renewed my relationship with one of my kundalini gurus. Seems like this eclipse would be good for relationships. My data: May 4 1963. 1:55 pm Oakland CA. I feel like I’m teetering on the brink of some good samadhi-experience.

    Hi Lance,

    I wish I could tell you about Chiron and Uranus – I really don’t use ’em much. Eclipses are not good for things as such, since very few (if any) people can use them constructively. They are just such a delivery of raw power that usually we fumble it.

    Thanks for all of the info on your site. I am a Scorpio(sun in 7th house) with Moon in Virgo in the 6th house & Aries Rising. Can you tell how it might affect me. You said emphasize points in your horoscope. You mean your horoscope for this time period or your chart in general. I don’t have the easiest of charts with Saturn in Taurus in the 2nd house. I also have 4 planets in Scorpio (Venus, Neptune which arein the 8th house & Jupiter which is the end of the 7th). Mercury & Uranus in Libra in the 7th. I then have Pluto in Virgo in the 6th & Mars in Libra in the 6th which of course is not an ideal placement. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was laid off from my job due to downsizing on Dec 1 & am flying out this a.m. for a big interview. Due to financial issues, I need to be able to land a job quickly. Thank you again for your help. Peace, blessings & love, K~
