The Solar Eclipse on November 3, 2013, is at 11 degrees Scorpio. Just like a new moon, a solar eclipse represents a time of new beginnings, a new cycle. The Moon passing in front of the Sun resets our focus, like rebooting a computer. There is an influx of new energy to help us re-orientate and move ahead on the new cycle which began with the October 18 lunar eclipse.
That previous lunar eclipse had an ominous feel about it. Just like this November 3 solar eclipse, the major astrological influence comes from Uranus square Pluto. This is the radical social, economic and political upheaval we are witnessing. Everything from debt crises, to out of control weather patterns and increasing tension between nations and races.
The lunar eclipse two weeks ago portended poison, mistrust and spiritual warfare because of Mars opposite Neptune. World leaders are preparing for some one off events in the coming year. It’s so damn obvious we are on the precipice. Now we see it and feel it coming, this November 2013 solar eclipse will breed fear of the looming chaos. The solar eclipse falls between Mercury and Saturn, a very sobering mix to challenge the optimists. Reality is about to hit home. Debts have to be paid, wrongdoers punished.
Sun conjunct Saturn is strictly ultra conservative, brought up on fear and beatings. Saint Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer, founder of the all powerful Roman Catholic cult Opus Dei, had Sun conjunct Saturn by less than one minute orb. These fascist technocrats have not produced a world political leader since Augusto Pinochet.
“Its attempts to place members in positions of influence in Australia (and in fact throughout the world) are extremely successful.” Recently elected on the back of a massive campaign warchest, Australian prime minister Tony Abbott, trained as a Catholic priest. He has close links to Opus Dei. His “close friend, mentor and counsellor” is Cardinal George Pell.
This is one example of how the spiritual war is playing out in my own backyard. Economic rationalism, xenophobia, fear mongering. As the global economy hurtles into the abyss, religious fundamentalism, nationalism and all kinds of extremism take hold. Zealots who believe they are doing gods work, will impose their morals and beliefs on those less powerful than themselves, through political laws and monetary policy.
Solar Eclipse in The Southern Cross
For this solar eclipse, the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Saturn and North Node are all in constellation Crux. The Southern Cross “A deeply religious nature”symbolizes sacrifice, hardship and suffering, just like the restrictive influence of Saturn on this eclipse. The November 3 solar eclipse itself, is on the main star in Crux, the fixed star Acrux, “A deeply religious nature connected with mystical and theosophical interests.” Tony Abbott his Sun and North Node on the fixed star Acrux.
Early advantage to the fascists, who thrive on the uncertainty and fear created by Uranus square Pluto, just as Adolf Hitler did last time around. Strict discipline and tough decisions are fueled by the sextile to Mars. There is great urgency to take control, set boundaries, slash budgets and maintain social order.
Trying to control people by phone taps is not the only poisonous manifestation of Mars opposite Neptune from the lunar eclipse two weeks ago. Mars is now on the unhappy and toxic fixed star Zosma. Fear and paranoia fuel zealous ambition to take control. Lies and deception to cover up the real motivations. This malicious fear manifests internally too. Spiritual warfare takes it toll on physical and mental health. No doubt at all, that health budgets are in the firing line with asteroid Hygeia on the South Node opposite Mercury, not good news I’m afraid.
Printing money is a desperate measure that will fail. When the fats cats that caused the problem run out of money, they instinctively blame someone else. It was the Jews fault last time. Before that it was wise women who didn’t submit to the Church. Some say we turn on ourselves when the shit hits the fan, but really, it is institutionalized and highly organised persecution. Once it was witch burning as shown in the graph, more recently it was gas chambers, who is going to get the blame this time around?
Comet ISON will appear in the night sky shortly, heralding the rise of an agent of change, a cultural or spiritual leader with some unorthodox ideas. They will be a manifestation of the mass consciousness, the free thinking people not yet brainwashed by the evolution denying, climate change denying fundamentalists. The neo fascists will thrive for a while on this dour solar eclipse doom and gloom.
They will not win. We don’t believe their bullshit anymore. We have the Internet to wire us into the global brain, increasing our awareness of what is going on, what is broken, and how to free ourselves of economic slavery. The upside of passionate Mars on Zosma is the ability to prophesy. The vision is fearful and apocalyptic, but this fuels the Mercury Saturn learning curve. Occult questioning, probing of the mysteries. The solar eclipse and Saturn on Acrux also favors the less regimented and controlled spiritual types. Acrux “gives religions beneficence, ceremonial, justice, magic and mystery, and is frequently prominent in the horoscopes of astrologers and occultists.”
Mercury and the North Node are on the fixed star Khambalia, “a star of the penetration of secrets…alchemy and the esoteric in general.” At first glance, this solar eclipse appears to favor increasing control and domination by conservative technocrats. Delving deeper, we see the real advantage is with the true believers, not of state control, but of the ancient communal ways. You can see in the horoscope for the solar eclipse, that this powerful driving ambition of Mars sextile the Saturn solar eclipse forms a Yod aspect pattern to revolutionary Uranus.
The more the bullies in suits clamp down, the more the persecuted will revolt. A Yod represents a spiritual mission, it is an aspect pattern of the spiritual warrior. People will not stand by silently and watch their neighbors burn this time. Uranus is the action point, where the Mars passion and the resolute Saturn Mercury eclipse finds it’s true expression.
Uranus is exactly conjunct the fixed star Algenib. This star in constellation Pegasus gives a “penetrating mind and a strong will, as well as determination. An impressive way of speaking and a gift for oratory.” Advantage to the rebels, the odd bods and free thinkers. Algenib with Uranus: “Active and eccentric mind, reformer or agitator, great influence over the minds of others necessitating journeys, peculiar ideas in advance of the time, mystic and fond of mysteries though frank and open.”
