The 25 Oct 2022 partial solar eclipse

As the title of this post indicates, there will be a partial solar eclipse on the 25th of October 2022. It comes at a time of tumultuous developments in the world, very fitting for Scorpio, the sign in which it occurs. Scorpio is the sign of the victorious warrior, having claimed victory over the inner demons, illusions, glamours and maya that have beset humanity since there has been a humanity on this planet. There is more about victory scattered about in this post, too. For more, read on… Continue reading “The 25 Oct 2022 partial solar eclipse”

The 30 April 2022 partial solar eclipse

On 30 April 2022 there will be a partial solar eclipse at the 11th degree of Taurus. It will be followed two weeks later by a total lunar eclipse at the full moon of Taurus, the Wesak moon. The latter will be a blood moon eclipse, as well as being a particularly powerful eclipse. The current eclipse will be covered here as the precursor to the Wesak moon. These two eclipses also fit into the larger picture of the astrological forecast for the Aries-to-Cancer quarter for this year, described in a previous post. With these points in mind, we begin our investigation. Continue reading “The 30 April 2022 partial solar eclipse”

The total solar eclipse of 2021

There is a total solar eclipse on the 4th of December this year. It is the only total solar eclipse for the year, out of the four eclipses for 2021. It will be particularly relevant for the United States, as it falls on the Ascendant of the US national Sibley chart. We will have a closer look at that in this post. So, without further ado, we move on to the nuts and bolts of this eclipse and what it might mean for us. Continue reading “The total solar eclipse of 2021”

The 10 Jun 2021 eclipse

On the 10th of June 2021 there will be an annular solar eclipse, meaning the Moon will not completely cover the Sun. The eclipse path will cover the arctic region. For people living there, the eclipse will appear as a ‘ring of fire’. This will be the 23rd eclipse of the solar Saros series 147, The eclipse path will begin near Winnipeg, Canada and will end in the Russian far east, passing directly over the North Pole, with the maxim eclipse occurring at the Nares Strait. There is some good symbolism in this eclipse, especially for the US and Russia. Continue reading “The 10 Jun 2021 eclipse”

America and the 14 Dec 2020 solar eclipse

There will be an eclipse in less than a week, on 14 Dec 2020, which will fall across from the US Mars and across Donald Trump’s natal full moon axis. What could possibly go wrong? I have read comment to the effect that America has not been this divided since the Civil War. Maybe so. But the date of the eclipse perhaps will register for people who know a bit of civics: It’s the date when the Electoral College has to declare who won the election. The media has declared Biden the winner. Trump and most of his supporters are crying voter fraud. And Trump wanted to take this all the way to the SCOTUS. Who will prevail, and if voter fraud is proven, what next? And since Trump’s claims have been overall dismissed by the courts, including the SCOTUS, what next? We’ll have a look at the astrology of what will be a most interesting eclipse and historical moment in the annals of US elections here. But, before we get to the astrology and the background, we’ll begin with a quote to set the tone. Continue reading “America and the 14 Dec 2020 solar eclipse”

The Mercury transit of 2019: background

There is a special eclipse that takes place the day before the full moon – the 2019 transit of Mercury across the face of the Sun. Yes, it is classed as an eclipse, as Mercury ‘occults’ part of the Sun’s face, even if it is a tiny dot – giving us yet another speck of wisdom. This will be a member of the Series 6 of Mercury transits, and the first one in that series since 1973, which saw the closest approach to the center of the sun in that series. (Note: The featured pic is not of this transit. That one is below in the article.) Continue reading “The Mercury transit of 2019: background”
