If you receive my annual cheat sheet, which is either ready at our website now or in a few days, you will see that I have posted, for August 18, a Lunar Eclipse. I lied, sort of! I felt it necessary to enter it on the cheat sheet as an eclipse because it is a ‘not quite there, but so close, it looks like one’ eclipse. For more technical information about the ‘almost’ eclipse, you can go to this url: http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/lunar/2016-august-18
But let’s say it is a lunar eclipse — because it is so very close… and maybe a very close eclipse (where the shadow of the earth just misses that of the moon), I do think it is a prequel to events of 2017, and, perhaps, events coming in mid-November 2016. Yes, you say, we will have had the USA Election on the 8th of November, and, personally, I think there will be shenanigans with it all the way through and past the election. However, as a ‘prequel’ at 25ºAquarius 51′ (and Leo), I think our nation is about to head into some very stormy territory. The USA Moon (Moons always rule the people of a country with a lot focused on the female contingent), is at late degrees of Aquarius where this ‘pretend’ eclipse occurs. If we view the US Chart, the Moon representing the people, is sandwiched between two powerful goddesses in myth. The one of the left is Pallas Athena (Goddess of Wisdom, as well as War) and, on the right, Ceres (the Earth, the food supply, any industries that have to do with agriculture, food supply, quality, and cost). It’s very possible that what a friend of mine said 30 years ago will begin occurring in the United States. What she said was that if women stood up more without worrying about the risk, things would change rapidly in this country.
The Moon is traditionally considered to be the Cosmic Mother in the myths and stories, but, frankly, she also has a dark side — that of the Devouring Mother. Nature envelops and protects as well as destroys and kills. We don’t know the outcome of this election, but it very much looks as though females will be major players in the upcoming administration. It also looks as though during the month of November, 2016 (which is 90-days after this ‘pretend’ eclipse), that those same leaders are faced with a sudden decision regarding either immigration (a Sagittarius issue), or, foreign enemies. I do not like writing things like this, but in looking at the charts for late summer, and, particularly around and immediately after the election, the USA may have to declare some sort of war, perhaps on ISIS. A war, however, doesn’t necessarily involve guns — it can be embargoes, taxes, and other stringent requirements making it virtually impossible for certain things to continue.
There is an asteroid (there are thousands of them) but there is one that is actually called ISIS. I am watching that asteroid’s movement. In mid-July at the conventions, it was at 2º Scorpio. As it moves forward through the sky and onto November 8, it is at 20º Sagittarius and beginning to enter the critical degree of the Galactic Center zone which is when things happen very fast and unexpectedly. By November 14, 2016 (exactly 90-days after this week’s eclipse, it is at the 28th degree of Sagittarius, which IS the Galactic Center). Pluto was at this very degree in 2008 as President Obama took office, the markets took a nose dive and well, we know the rest.
Whomever is running for President and other offices better be thick skinned, steady, stable, anchored and knowledgeable and ready with strategies, back up plans, and the ability to make clear headed decisions and fast, without hesitancy. Simply said — folks — get your financial houses in order and be prepared for lots of change as we enter the last phase of 2016 and the new year 2017.
