My goodness, this site has been rockin and rollin the last few days and a tribute to the Aries Eclipse. I wrote an article regarding the Eclipse but Nancy put hers up and then Art sent me his and I wanted to post that one. However one of the things I wrote in that article was the fact that the Eclipse was in Aries and in the first house giving rise to a pugnacious response over the next few months to events and AW (as well as other sites) proved the energy affects us collectively. I have seen example after example of the Aries tendency to push one's ideas and opinions forward, including the Immigration issue.
Just some quick notes regarding this eclipse and how it will unfold over the next few months. First of all the 12th house of this eclipse was loaded, the meeting in Cancun between Canada, US, and Mexico would have been rife with secret plans between the grand three. Including, I bet, the idea of making our corner of the world one political government. We will have to see if they get it off the ground.
Mexico (Jan. 31, 1917 @4pm Queretaro, Mexico) and the US have a very interesting combined chart (two charts at their midpoint) with 6 planets plus Chiron in Aries. The shouting and fighting over immigration is not finished, not by a long shot. The radio jockeys on both sides of the border will keep the pot and everyone in it, boiling mad for quite sometime.
Saturn in the Mexican chart opposes the US Pluto with Mexico's Jupiter squaring them both, creating a drain on the US resources and we will be afraid to call them on it, but we don't help the plight of the poor very much either. One thing for sure it's the people who will be the losers.
This isn't about or shouldn't be about the immigrants, it's about corporations and governments that have a vested interest in keeping wages and benefits very low. It's also an opportunity to join together and insist on a living wage for all. The Sun and the Moon are in Aries in the combined charts and when Uranus hits Aries in a few years perhaps we will join forces and make our demands heard.
We are being cosmically squeezed into learning how to value one another and to get along before we annihilate ourselves as the human race. We need to focus on the fact that we all belong to the sisterhood/brotherhood of mankind and ignore the fallacious and phony class wars governments continuously use to keep us all separated from sharing and getting along. They’ve done it in Africa, they’ve done it in America, the Middle East, Europe, all over the world for thousands of years. We need a new governmental model in the world and a way to convince the so called "elites" (can we come up with another name) that they too belong to the human race.
The question I’ve always asked myself and others is “once this period of time is over, where will our hatred and anger go?” We have been culturally trained as a human race to “hate” someone or something. We’ve been taught by governments (another name for war lords) to fight one another in order to survive. Is there another way? Can war be declared on poverty, disease, environmental issues, can we learn to share and walk together? These are the questions we must ask ourselves if we are to go forward as a human race.
As far as the Mexican’s taking our jobs, I heard the same arguments in the 1960’s and 1970’s about women and blacks. The human race just cannot even become creative in their fears. I think it’s time to focus on multi-nationals and government leaders.
But let me quickly run through the eclipse chart. Neptune and Venus in Aquarius in the 12th house. Uranus conjunct Mercury in Pisces, ruled by Neptune and in the 12th house. By the way Uranus is ruling the 12th house and is in the 12th house. Ascendant is Pisces ruled by Neptune, the Mid-heaven is Sagittarius ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter and Neptune are in a square aspect. The Sun and Moon are in Aries ruled by Mars at 21 Gemini which is ruled by Mercury in Pisces in the 12th house. This is my little rant as I realize everything in this Eclipse Chart relates to lies, fog, obfuscation, spin, double-talk, disassembling, did I miss anything. It can also relate to creativity, spirituality, fake (as in zealots) and authentic, originality, plus a little bit of magic, and we need quite a lot of that these days. Take your pick, you are likely to see it all on this eclipse. The sextile from the Moon/Sun to Chiron gives hope for unexpected opportunities for healing the country and individuals.
Take another look at the list above and what Neptune can bring and take away so you can make your picks as to what you want to focus on for your own lives.
One interesting side note about this eclipse, Claudia Dikinis pointed out to me that this eclipse relates to the March 29, 1987 Eclipse (8 Aries) and within months of that eclipse the Iran/Contra scandal exploded in the US. Two principals of that Reagan scandal was Casper Weinberger (eventually pardoned by George HW Bush) indicted by the Federal Government for his part in the “arms for hostages.” Lyn Nofziger, another Reagan top aide during the Iran/Contra, also died on the same day last week. In 1987 the Sun and Moon was precisely at 8 degrees Aries, and T-Pluto is exactly conjunct the 1987 eclipse chart Uranus. Again quoting Claudia “you can’t make this stuff up.” The Cosmic keys are always there if we know how and where to look. It’s interesting to note that Saturn in the 1987 Eclipse Chart is exactly on George W. Bush’s South Node, and exactly opposite his father’s Sun and squaring his father’s Uranus. Something from the past impacting them both.
When dealing with world wide chaos, turmoil and confusion it's impossible to tell when and where energy will go and who it will impact but globalization is absolutely the intended end of this agenda and it will happen, but it won't be as anyone expects it to be. The game plan is to keep people off balance and afraid in order to accomplish their ends. There is an easier way to do this so everyone wins, but again I must say their creativity is woefully lacking and the reason it's lacking is the excessive thirst for power and money. They are fighting among themselves folks.
These are just a few of my thougts on the eclipse and a way to get up a new thread. Over the past 10 years I've been studying "energy" and how it's applied, lately I've been very sensitive to it, when it changes in a family, company, room, town, state etc. You can feel it right before it changes and I've noticed how a person can affect change by a single shift of individual energy. Harmony and joy has the most profound impact on an environment. Try it sometime you will be amazed at how well it works.
