A Lunar Eclipse is due on November 28th 2012, and this one is going to be a hot one! This Eclipse will occur at 6.47 degrees Gemini.
This Eclipse will be a part of a Boomerang (a Yod with an opposition from the apex). At the apex of the Yod is the Full Moon with Asteroid Lilith. In Hebrew tradition, Lilith was Adam’s first wife. Unlike Eve, Lilith was created from the ground, the same way Adam was created. She was highly sexual, but not out of desire for procreation. Indeed, she was not satisfied with traditional forms of love-making. Lilith refused to submit to patriarchal authority, and decided to leave the Garden of Eden. This angered Adam, and he threatened that if she didn’t return, 100 of the children she birthed ever day would die. Lilith, however, became angry and did not return to Adam. Instead, she continued to birth children (despite the fact that they were destined to die). She would seduce men when she was bored, then murder them or drive them to insanity. Adam eventually had God create Eve from his rib, as he found Lilith too difficult to handle.
Lilith in a woman’s chart shows how and under which circumstances her sexual energy is released. Lilith also relates to where and how we use our feminine power, and shows us the place where we hold vengefulness. Prominent feminists and women in positions of considerable power have strongly placed Liliths in their charts. Think Gloria Steinam and Hilary Clinton. Think Samantha from “Sex and the City,” who refused to submit to men in the workplace, and in bed. She had sex “like a man,” and didn’t apologize for it, despite societal expectations.
Lilith represents the temptress, seducer, and is often compared to a “home wrecker.” Lilith represents the scary side of women, and what men fear the most. The fulfillment of her sexual appetites and desires was what Lilith cared for the most, and any attempt to hamper her sexual self-expression was met with hostility and violence. Lilith is magnetic, and has the power to mesmerize those she comes in contact with. She uses sexuality to further her own goals, and takes no prisoners.
You’ll often find strong Lilith contacts in the synastry charts of a couple in a secret affair. In a man’s chart, Lilith represents the type of woman he fears the most, the type who can drive him over the edge with obsession and desire, hence Lilith’s reputation as a home wrecker. In General Petraeus’ progressed chart, I noticed that his progressed Venus is exactly opposite his Progressed Lilith at the moment. It is thus no surprise that he has been involved in an affair recently. His mistress apparently harassed another woman, showing her raw, take-no-prisoners attitude.
The Apex of the Yod represents the focus of the Eclipse. With the Moon and Lilith in a tight conjunction, we can infer that deep, raw, feminine energy will be at play. In addition, Lilith will be conjunct transiting Jupiter at 3 degrees. This conjunction will expand raw, female sexual energies, and may perhaps revolutionize outdated religious beliefs. The Full Moon will conjunct Jupiter the day of the eclipse, expanding our feelings and perhaps bringing out our egotistical tendencies. Expect emotions to be strong, and possibly over-exaggerated during this eclipse. Finally, the Full moon will make a sextile aspect to transiting Uranus in Aries, which promises out of the blue and unexpected events.
The Moon/Lilith conjunction in Gemini will receive a quincunx from Mars/Pluto in Capricorn and Venus/Saturn in Scorpio. This is a very sexual combination. Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio represents duty, responsibility, and tradition in regards to love and relationships. In Scorpio, nothing is half-way; Scorpio represents complete and utter commitment. This conjunction also represents tradition and security in our relationships. Venus and Saturn together can also indicate harshness and a lack of sympathy for others. Indeed, love will be “all business” at this time.
Mars conjunct Pluto is desirous, erotic, obsessive, and ruthless. This transit could signal violence and abuse, so take extra care around the time of the transit, especially if this conjuction makes hard aspects to your natal planets. Of course, Venus/Saturn will make a sexy sextile to the Mars/Pluto conjunction, highlighting eroticism, obsession, and passionate love.
This Eclipse may put a focus on secret love dalliances (Hello, Petraeus!), and the focus of energy will likely be on the other woman (Lilith). Otherwise, this eclipse can work to reunite ex-lovers. At any rate, this Eclipse will not be easy, and painful memories, obsessive desires, hidden motivations, and even violent reactions are likely to surface.
While the Solar Eclipse on November 13-14 was likely confusing and marred with miscommunication (Mercury was retrograde square Neptune), this Eclipse will bring certainly bring clarity. With Mercury direct, Venus and Saturn in the sign of “No BS” Scorpio, and Mars and Pluto in conjunction, this Eclipse promises to shine a light on love, desire, obsession, and secrets.
