Considering the total eclipse of August 21 2017, we have hardly recovered. Since that eclipse there has been a long list of huge natural disasters all across the United States, which, incidentally, was the course of the eclipse. I personally went to Oregon to see this one and it was like seeing another dimension. The sky darkened, wind started, dogs howled and at totality I had a vision of what a worm hole or black hole might look light. It made me filled with AWE.
Since that time (August 21) the list of natural disasters, record setting at that, has become a list that has defied the imagination while I was up in Oregon going ooh with awe at the eclipse.
Fires in California, three hurricanes, Puerto Rico laid waste, level 7 earthquakes around the world. I live in LA and worry about our “big one” coming. The weather has gone wacky and new high temperatures have emerged as well as record low temperatures. And the record fires yielded record and deadly mud slides.
February 15 2018 Eclipse is the brother/sister, choose your gender, of the August 21 2017 eclipse. The August was at 28 degrees of Leo, this February 15th is at 27 Aquarius. This opposition is something to be taken seriously. The same acupuncture area is hit with a new needle.
Hopefully when there is another eclipse that follows the preceding one, we try to see if we can fully understand the preceding and possibilities for a change in the upcoming. However in this case the power of August 21 was so strong that we would be crazy not to put some mental energy into trying to figure out what the impact of February 15 might be.
One of the things that worries me is that this eclipse quincunxes the Mercury of the USA chart (Aquarius-Cancer). I point this out as this can’t help but make the difficulty of fake news and honest news increasingly puzzling and not only in terms of the President and the collusion investigation,but all the other news on the diplomatic area, as well as the “me too” and other social events, as well as the way the congress has become more divided than even recently could have been thought of. The world politics are not much better with deep issues as climate change, increasing water shortages and drought. The issues of the haves and have not will come into sharper focus. The 99 percent will have even more to grumble about and this issue will add more weight to social tension. Look for more street marches on a larger scale.
Speaking of drought, The July 12th eclipse at 20 degrees of Cancer opposes the transiting Pluto which is slowly creeping its way to a Pluto return of the USA Pluto at 27 Capricorn, beginning orb in 2022–an supplying a topper to all the events of the Saturn Pluto conjunction at the end of 2020. These are evolutionary times my friends. The yelling of warnings in the last couple of decades about the reality of climate change will become acute–and the drought in Asia, African, Australia, SW US, and parts of Russia will bear witness of what the great Cardinal Cross foreshadowed in the beginning of the century. The focus at that time was around 20 degrees of Cancer and now we have an eclipse hitting that point. Wow. There will be huge immigration problems starting down the road as people parched for water will head to borders where there is something to drink. Lets hope that I have been taking too many critical and cynical pills, so I will stop on this eclipse for the time being.
Looking at the August 11th eclipse at 18 Leo is exactly opposite the US Moon at 18 Aqueous. This eclipse definitely points to some serious strain on the institutions of our country, especially as we will be in the heat of the 2018 election campaigns. One might hope that this points to a bringing of new emotional and nurturing changes in our country. It could, however point to serious challenges to the fabric of our democracy. It could point to some attempts to clean things up. I will need more time to consider this eclipse and will write more specifically about it after the July 12 eclipse.
In the meantime wait until I write about Uranus entering Taurus in May. That will bring challenges to fixed concepts and institutions as well. When two fixed signs collide, the fall out will be immense.
