The upcoming Solar Eclipse in Aquarius 2018

The Sabian symbol I have listed below could not be more pertinent in my life right now. How about yours?

PHASE 328 (AQUARIUS 28°): A TREE FELLED AND SAWED TO ENSURE A SUPPLY OF WOOD FOR THE WINTER.

KEYNOTE: Knowledge and skill used in its natural surroundings for the satisfaction of vital basic needs.

This symbol combines, as it were, the implications represented in the two preceding ones. It relates to natural living the human capacity to prepare for the future and to use both physical strength and mental ingenuity. In meeting the hardships inherent in an existence close to nature, strength, efficiency and intelligence are needed, but they are incorporated in a life in which every act can be part of a harmonic and beautiful ritual permeated with deep significance.

This is the third in the sixty-sixth five-fold series of symbols. It refers to the efficient use of natural resources for insuring man’s well-being. Such a use is based on INTELLIGENT FORESIGHT.

Gienah is found in the Swan’s wing. Cygnus the Swan “Cygnus gives a contemplative, dreamy, cultured and adaptable nature. The affections are ill-regulated and unsteady, the talents develop late. There is some love of water and swimming and the arts.” The swan is yet another bird associated with Jupiter. This time it is actually one of his animal disguises. Jupiter took the form of a swan to seduce Leda, Queen of Sparta.Solar eclipse 2018 queen

On February 15th we have a New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius. The eclipse is tightly conjunct Mercury and Juno, is square Jupiter and sextile Uranus. The ruler of the Eclipse, Saturn, is sextile Venus. Venus with Saturn, as well as theasteroid Juno are connected to the principle of devotion.

This is a South Node eclipse – South Node eclipses are about letting go. Both Lunar Nodes are about adjustments, and alignments – if North Node eclipses have a dose of mystery and unknown, South Node eclipses are more literal – the adjustments they require are more obvious. You may have been devoting all your life to a cause, to a dream, to an ideal (Aquarius). The eclipse will expose the current reality of that ideal. You may realize that you are devoted to a lost cause, or at least, your cause and the relationship you have with it needs to go through some changes.

To find out how the Eclipse is going to impact you, check which house of your natal chart Aquarius is in. If you have for example, Scorpio ascendant / Aquarius in the 4th house, you may realize that you have put too much energy and devotion into your family to the point of losing yourself. There are many people who stay in current jobs, relationships, friendships out of devotion, even if they are unhappy. The Solar Eclipse in Aquarius will challenge your relationship with the concept of devotion. Is it really worth it? Is your devotion unconditional or do you expect something in return? Venus sextile Saturn will give you the pragmatism to make the necessary changes.

Aspects

The Aquarian themes just mentioned are reemphasized by Uranus’ tight sextile to the Sun and Moon. The luminaries’ conjunctions to Venus, Juno and Mercury put a strong focus on relationships. Venus rules relationships, Juno stands for committed partnerships, and Mercury represents communication. All this suggests that you take an innovative approach so that you can communicate more effectively with those you’re close to.

The potential far reaching effect that the Solar eclipse could have on so many people

Dane Rudhyar says ~ Pisces 29th degree is Light Breaking into Many Colors as it passes through a prism.

THE ANALYTICAL POWER OF THE MIND NECESSARY FOR THE FORMULATION OF LIFE PROCESSES IN THEIR MANY FORMS.

That was the exact degree that the SOLAR eclipse fell last Friday. March 20, 2015

A total solar eclipse occurred on March 20, 2015. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth’s surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide.

It had a magnitude of 1.045. The longest duration of totality was 2 minutes and 47 seconds off the coast of the Faroe Islands. It is the last total solar eclipse visible in Europe until the eclipse of August 12, 2026.

The only populated places reachable by public land travel from which the totality could be seen were the Faroe Islands and Svalbard.

Impact

The European Union has a solar power output of about 90 gigawatts and production could have been temporarily decreased by up to 34 GW of that dependent on the clarity of the sky. In actuality the dip was less than expected, with a 13 GW drop in Germany happening due to overcast skies.[8] This was the first time that an eclipse had a significant impact on the power system, and the electricity sector took measures to mitigate the impact. Says Wikipedia. Anything with that much impact electrically I have been pondering must really therefore impact our personal astrology as well.

As it is with most of my chart since 2005 as I can recall this eclipse to has hit a significant point in my natal chart so in this instance I will use myself as the example of the impact.

So the foremost aspect that pops right out at me is the conjunction of the Sun and my natal Chiron at 29 degrees of Pisces in my 3rd house. Continue reading

BIG stuff Today


Enforced change

Major  break with previous associations

Political defection, assassinations,

and unexpected twists of alliances

New policies that can actually end Depression.

What seems to be an explosive outburst

or unexpected eruption

actually reflects the outward expression

of what has been brewing underneath 

for a long time.

If it seems as if it comes out of nowhere,

it doesn’t.

Because Uranus is involved

you can’t guess it. If you guess it,

it can’t happen.

If you think it can’t happen, it might.

This is not necessarily an evil event.

Quite the contrary.

It can signal unusual luck,

but in that case, 

it will demand a sudden separation

from a long-standing loyalty.

Sometimes it denotes impossible bravery

and feats of courage and daring.

These are spontaneous act of heroism.

You could turn any situation around in a second

without thinking

Of course this could be a violent act for people with no

impulse control.

This conjunction of Mars Uranus square Pluto 

often reflects a break

with the past and it can occur 

with a violent rupture

Or 

a carefully integrated agreement 

and specially crafted separation. 

It is politically motivated but negotiated with wisdom.

It represents striking out on one’s own

and always the attempt 

to get out from under 

a regime or routine
