Astrology of Now: That Eclipse Feeling and Some Politics
We are already into the energy of the eclipse on March 9. As soon as the Sun moved into Pisces, you may have felt it in your “waters”. Something big is giving way. It may feel like ice breaking under your feet as you crunch over a puddle that could turn out to be a well, or it may be a building tidal wave of emotion.
This looks like an important eclipse — even if it’s not visible from where you are.
Just to clarify.
Mercury, Neptune, Ceres, Sun, Moon and Chiron in Pisces oppose Jupiter in Virgo
(the eclipse is lop-sided and many planets are involved)
Sun-Moon will be directly opposite Jupiter at 18°
(the eclipse effect is magnified)
The Nodes are at 21°
Saturn squares the eclipse from Sagittarius at 16°
(Saturn may help to contain some of the unleashed energy, but may just irritate)
That is a forceful opposition against one lone king. That is a tidal wave against the monarch. The potential? Someone important is swept away.
Note that all three frontrunners in the US election: Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are touched directly by this eclipse. Perhaps none more so than Trump, whose Sun-Moon opposition (21-22° Gemini-Sag) is a at square to this eclipse, creating a Grand Cross. But Sanders’ Sun is at 15° Virgo and Clinton’s Moon is at 22° Pisces. The two Democrats might make a good team if they could put aside their differences.
This eclipse activates the Jupiter-Neptune opposition, and strikes the US natal Neptune at 22° Virgo and natal Mars at 21° Gemini. (Isn’t it interesting that Donald Trump’s natal Sun/Uranus is right on the US Mars. He stimulates American aggression.)
Meanwhile here in Britain, we have stumbled into a referendum on whether to leave or remain in the European Union. It’s serious for the country, either way. We don’t vote until June 23, but all hell has broken out in the ruling Conservative Party already. This eclipse is a direct hit on the Prime Minister David Cameron’s natal Uranus-Pluto in Virgo opposite Saturn-Chiron in Pisces. This is a generational aspect that he shares with everyone born in 1965-67. However, the eclipse is tightly on his particular conjunctions, and it looks as if he may already have a hole below the political waterline from his handling of the referendum issue.
If you were born in 1965-67, this eclipse is touching your generation. If you have planets in mutable signs — Gemini, Virgo, Pisces or Sagittarius — you will feel this eclipse.
Eclipses accelerate change. Look at where Pisces-Virgo are in you chart to find out where that change is happening
