Eclipses are dramatic events that for aeons have evoked potent emotions in the humans that observe them down below. The eclipse of August 21, 2017 is such an eclipse, and is already being heralded as as a game-changing eclipse for the United States.
Ichrak Dahou of Atlas Astrology and I have teamed up to share with you what you can expect from this eclipse season, including both the lunar eclipse of August 7 and the solar eclipse of August 21, and how best to work with the energy manifested on earth during this time period.
Sign up for our mailing list to receive communications about what eclipses are, why they matter, and what’s special and relevant about this upcoming eclipse season. In July, we invite you to attend a webinar on the August eclipses with us to resource yourself with information on what to expect and how you might make the most of these transits. Tickets will go up shortly – until then, sign up below to learn more.
About the Astrologers
Hello, I am Ichrak of Atlas Astrology. I first started studying astrology under a Venus Retrograde passage in 2009, when I was put onto my spiritual path after life asked me to get quiet enough to listen to what it was telling me. While I had always been interested in the occult and all manner of esoteric explanations, I only pursued it in earnest beginning that fateful year.
Since then I have been studying astrology formally since 2013, opening my professional practice in 2014.
Studying astrology feels like remembering to me, and I am certain that I have worked this craft in many lifetimes, re-learning it again each time I am blessed to take birth into physical form! I use astrology to understand myself and others, to understand the bigger cycles which compose the warp and weft of the days and years of our lives, and to live better. You may read my writing and listen to my astrological podcast by visiting www.atlasastrology.com. I live in the beautiful, geographically diverse state of Maryland, and I am so excited to share about eclipse season with you all!
I’m Sabrina Monarch of Monarch Astrology. I’ve been into astrology since I was a kid, drawing up natal charts for my friends and researching synastry. I knew one day I’d study it in depth, maybe decades later. But in 2012 I had a spiritual emergence experience that radically enlivened me and had me questioning the foundations of the reality I’d always known.
Toward the end of a pretty wild adventure, I sat down with an evolutionary astrologer for some answers and felt more deeply seen than I’d ever been in my life. How did this person know my Soul without yet knowing me? I had to study evolutionary astrology, and so I did. Armed with amazing knowledge I wanted to share, I found myself at a crossroads. I couldn’t go back to the normal world from which I’d come, but what I’d touched in my mystical experiences didn’t yet exist sustainably for me or in my immediate world. At the risk of having to live an inauthentic life or a life in exile, I got to work: I wondered how the mystical could be brought down to earth.
This initiatory experience sent me on a path of building relationships with the planets and the Universe itself, and becoming a professional evolutionary astrologer. I write weekly forecasts at www.monarchastrology.com and see clients, and am soon to begin a masters program in Philosophy.
