The June 2010 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse: All the Scary Details

It’s Eclipse Week here at The Spiritual Eclectic, so watch for more articles this week on how this eclipse will affect you.

But first, the basics.

Time and Date:

June 26, 2010; 6:31 AM Central (here in NW Florida)

Type:

Partial Lunar.  That means that the Full Moon won’t be entirely obscured by the Earth’s shadow.

Where seen:

Australia and East Asia (after sunset);  Parts of North America and South America (before sunrise)…and, if you’re in Antarctica, I think you’ll have a good view.

General predictions among astrologers:

Intense emotion.  Aggressive behavior.  Explosions, economic collapse (in many countries), terrorist activity, upheaval, war, concerns about Korea, concerns about the BP oil spill—not necessarily on the DAY of the eclipse but over the next 6 months with a special emphasis on the July-August time frame.  Hmmm, so far I haven’t seen any light, fluffy prognostications.

Favorability:

The overwhelming opinion of astrologers I’ve communicated with have the same negative opinion, summed up best as “We’re screwed.”  The most positive astrologers have said that if you’ve done the worked on your problems and learned from your lessons, then you’ll be okay.

Sign and Degree:

4 Capricorn 46, sometimes read as 5 degrees

Sabian symbol:

At 5 Capricorn, “Indians rowing a canoe and dancing a war dance  with its opposing sign 5 Cancer, “An automobile wrecked by a train.”
