Eclipse wildfires and South Africa



by Marjorie Orr July 01, 2013 10:25 AM EST

These recent difficult Eclipses continue to make their presence felt. The catastrophic wildfire in Arizona started by lightning in the midst of a scorching heat wave has resulted in the deaths of 19 firemen, the worst such tragedy in 80 years in the USA.

 

Arizona, 14 Feb 1912, has Mars at 5 degrees Gemini with the Solar Arc Sun approaching a conjunction to Mars which is always accident prone and transiting Neptune square Mars at the moment and about to square the Solar Arc Sun. So a truly panic-making and devastating time.

 

The recent Lunar Eclipse of 25th May had the Full Moon at 4 degrees Sagittarius/Gemini so seriously rattling the Arizona Mars. And that Eclipse located to Yarnell, AZ, has Uranus conjunct IC and Jupiter conjunct Descendant – so a significant and upsetting Eclipse for that area.

The Arizona chart also has the Solar Arc Saturn moving to oppose the AZ Sun within less than a degree – so an all round depressing time.

 

South Africa has also been in the eye of the Eclipse storm. They have been waiting on tenterhooks for what sadly looks likely to be Nelson Mandela’s passing.

The 10th May 2013 Solar Eclipse at 19 Taurus was exactly conjunct the South Africa Taurus Sun (conjunct Moon) – so it did point to a significant cross roads for the country. It was a difficult Eclipse with the New Moon conjunct Mars and Mars opposition Saturn trine/sextile Pluto – so destructive, depressing.

 

Tr Neptune is also trine the South Africa 1994 chart’s Solar Arc Venus as is tr Saturn. So a sad time with tr Neptune reversing to square the Solar Arc Moon from mid July saying much the same; plus a heavy tr Pluto sextile Saturn.

 

Both recent Lunar Eclipses as well located to South Africa had major activity on the angles. The 25 April Eclipse with Sun Mars opposition Moon Saturn had Pluto on the Ascendant and Uranus on the IC – suggesting a major internal upset.

 

The 25 May Eclipse had Sun Mars on the Ascendant opposition Moon on the Descendant and Neptune conjunct MC. And that latter Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini rattled the South Africa 1910 Gemini Sun square Pisces Moon as well.

 

So everything was pointing to a difficult few months.
