Solar and Lunar Eclipses - flagging up trouble



by Marjorie Orr May 22, 2013 12:51 PM EST

We’re now in the midst of a series of eclipses – a Lunar Eclipse on 25 April and again 25 May and a Solar Eclipse on May the 10th. Eclipses tend to trigger events just before and in the six months following the exact day.

 

 

The 25 April Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) was unpleasant with an accident-prone Moon Saturn in Scorpio opposition Sun Mars in Taurus, sextile/trine Pluto and Neptune. It occurred the day after the Bangladesh factory collapse which has now killed over 600.

 

The May 10th Solar Eclipse (New Moon) at 19 degrees Taurus had the Mars opposition Saturn sextile/trine Pluto with Mars conjunct the New Moon. So suggests again less than wonderful events. Relocated to Cleveland, Ohio it puts the New Moon on the Descendant and Neptune on the IC as the community there tries to come to terms with the horrors of imprisoned women in the middle of a busy neighbourhood.

Washington, DC has Neptune on the IC at the base of the chart suggesting indecisiveness. Pluto on the Midheaven and Uranus Ascendant run through the Middle East with the Syria debacle getting worse by the moment and threatening to draw Israel and others into a regional conflict. Afghanistan also looks highly fraught with New Moon Mars on the Ascendant and Saturn on the Descendant.

 

The 25 May Lunar Eclipse in early Sagittarius/Gemini is less stressed though the Full Moon squares Neptune which will be lack lustre and dithering.

 

The recent Eclipses all had planets on the angles when relocated to Oklahoma where the tornado killed nearly 100 people – May 10th Solar Eclipse had Saturn on the Ascendant opposition Mars Descendant. The Lunar Eclipse 25 April had Neptune Descendant; and the Lunar Eclipse May 25th has Pluto conjunct Ascendant and Saturn conjunct Midheaven. Usually when there are significant and unpleasant events the Eclipses in that location will have planets close to the angles of the chart.

 

Plus these Eclipses were in hard aspect to the Oklahoma City, 23 April 1889, Sun and Mars in Taurus; as well as the Oklahoma State, 16 Nov 1907, Sun Scorpio square Mars in Aquarius. So clearly a distressing time for Oklahoma.
