Eclipses and the Metonic Cycle


Join us and special guest María Blaquier for a discussion about interpreting eclipses in astrology.

This session will introduce and explore the Metonic Cycle of the Moon. The Greek astronomer Meton discovered this 19-year cycle in the 5th century AD by. The Moon phases of these eclipses, either new or full, will be almost exactly the same every nineteen years. The nuances of the Metonic Cycle allows us to link events to 19-year periods as well as to predict how the influence of an eclipse will unfold in the next 9, 18 and 27 months.

Every solar eclipse is a new beginning. According to this cycle, it will produce events every 9 months for the following couple of years, as the Moon phases repeat.

This presentation will examine the upcoming total solar eclipse on Saturday, December 4th at 12 Sagittarius from this unique perspective.
