The Moon, when viewed from hereabouts, is about half a degree wide. During the October 8 Total Lunar Eclipse, Uranus will be half a degree west and one degree south of the Moon. Uranus is barely visible with the naked eye, if you know where to look. Normally a Full Moon would be far too bright to see a nearby Uranus, but with the Moon Eclipsed, you might be able to see Uranus, just to the right and below the Moon from the Northern Hemisphere, and just to the left of the Moon from the Southern Hemisphere.
The Eclipse, visible from North and South America, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific, will be Total for an hour, from half-past 3am PDT till half-past 4am. The Partial Eclipse begins about an hour and a quarter earlier.
As you can see in the picture, the Full Moon makes a kite with the now-fading Mars-Jupiter-Uranus Grand Trine. The related Mars-Chiron-Jupiter Tricolor is still going strong. But it’s obvious that the Big Deal in the picture is the Yod and Mjolnir pointing at Chiron. The foot of the Yod is the Sun-Jupiter Sextile. The foot of the Mjolnir is a Mercury-Juno Square.
The meat of this Eclipse is about Insights into the ways we need to allow our Consciousness to Grow if we are to avoid Discouragement about our Yintegrity, or our willingness to drop our Masks and let our True Self shine through. We’re always preaching as if everyone has too little Yintegrity, but there are some folks who have too much Yintegrity.
It’s not a moral choice, it’s a pragmatic choice. The recurring problem with our Masks is that we always need to remember to whom we told which half-truths. Yintegrity is just a lot more comfortable – and Joyous! – way to Live. But the modern World, particularly substantial parts of the Economic World, operates more on Yangtegrity – schedules and deliverables – than on Yintegrity.
We would love to be able to Live both ways, switching back and forth effortlessly and quickly, to whichever mode was most appropriate for the moment’s circumstances. That is possible. If it doesn’t seem possible to you, PIAVA it. That’s exactly what this Eclipse is all about.

The Saturn-Ceres Initiation that’s circled in the picture actually occurred on October 4, but we’ll write about it here because we’ve already written about the Mercury Station on October 4. The lingering Conjunction will certainly color the Eclipse anyway. The Initiation occurred at 21 Scorpio, “Obeying his conscience, a soldier resists orders.” Which is to say, “Trusting his Yintegrity, a soldier resists Yangtegrity.” The ongoing Uranus-Pluto Square says no matter how much Yintegrity you Live, for now, more is better!
