The July 13 Cancer Solar Eclipse (20°41′) began the cycle and the August 11 Leo Solar Eclipse (18°41′) will end it.
The July 28 Aquarius Total Lunar Eclipse (04°44′), at 6.20 am, represents the culmination of the whole period, right in the middle of it, and it is indeed a very special event, not only to astrologers but astronomers as well, because of its length, a whopping one hour and 42 minutes, the longest lasting of the whole 21st century.
The effect of Eclipses is often long lasting, extending for months and even years past the actual event.
The WANING MOON TRANSITS VIRGO from Sunday, August 12, 1.58 pm, to Tuesday, August 14, 2.56 pm, with the ingress into LIBRA.
The LEO NEW MOON PHASE, also a PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on 18° LEO starts on Saturday, August 11, 7.57 pm, and ends on Wednesday, August 15, 2.28 am, with the LIBRA CRESCENT MOON PHASE.

Dear reader, please notice that, at the moment, I am busy streamlining the navigation on my site, in the hope of making it easier for you to find the articles you may be interested in. I realized recently that the site is difficult to navigate because of the way it has been structured, in a blog form, with recent articles on top and old ones lost in the great beyond. While searching myself for a post I had written few years back I was unable to find it! I am now collecting all the posts on similar subjects under the same heading on the menu bar. There is in fact lots more to this site that it is apparent at first.
This is still a work in process and will take some time. Thank you for your support throughout the years, Paola Emma4
