Total Lunar Eclipse as Magicians and Shamans Play on a Stage Beset with Rumors
Deception and Victims on a Blood Red Moon or Illusions?
Everyone from bible thumping Christians to the most far out conspiracy theorist are seizing on tonight's red tinged total lunar eclipse—the last one until Dec. 2010. Sure this is a big deal yet all the eclipses of the 2008 season are notable. The Aquarian event on Feb. 7tth this year that was preceded by Super Tornadoes on Super Tuesday eve began the magic. With the maximum earth shadow to occur @ 7:26 PM PT or 10:26 PM ET or 3:26 AM (2-21-08) UT this should be a magnificent visual experience for North America. See this excellent animation.
Mercury leads the Magicians @ Shamans on this Eclipse.
Fixed Stars for the chart above shows -
Deneb Adige as Mercury is Culminating orb 00 mins 10 secs -
An idea-magician; the poet, the actor or the shaman
This particular star found in the constellation Pisces - Deneb Adige is a brilliant white star in the Tail of Cygnus, the Swan. Keeping with the Piscean theme as Mercury is applying to a conjunction with Neptune (ruler of Pisces) on March 9th so that we see that Cygnus gives a contemplative, dreamy, cultured and adaptable nature...
Per Robson: "It is of the nature of Venus and Mercury, and gives an ingenious nature and a clever intellect that is quick at learning."
With both these orbs in air signs levitation is bound to be one of the most experienced powers...
Witness this African Shaman levitating
Mars and the Battle for Space Weapons
We are coming up within hours of on an attempt by the US Navy to shoot down a spy satellite that 'supposedly threatens our lives." Other nations are on alert because of this act as Russia claims these plans to shoot down a damaged spy satellite may be a veiled test of America's missile defense system.
As Mars (Military)now direct in Gemini and applying to an exact opposition to Pluto on March 7th is flexing it's muscles when most of the people on this planet are just plain sick and tired of war. Not only Russia is opposed to the implications of this test but China has drafted a treaty on preventing an arms race in outer space. Since last December's Pluto-Jupiter meeting in Sagittarius
the Pentagon has pushed to create the Placement of Weapons in Outer Space.
Religion, Victims and Mental Health push the Virgo-Pisces Axis
In the chart above Moon @ 2 Virgo sits in the natural house of Pisces (12th) near Saturn for some deep inner-spiritual activity. In fact the older Sabian says it all: " A large white cross stands alone on a high hill." Old age religions are starting to give way via a symbolic eclipsing process to more advanced spirituality that is grounded in our hearts. The Sun @ 2 Pisces via a more modern Sabian: "An angelfish draws its tail across its face. Spying a fisherman, it darts into the shelter fo a coral reef." This image is telling of the desire to lower one's veils and defenses vs. hiding one's feelings and offering deception in the public eye. It should prove interesting that this degree is that of Patty Hearst;s Sun, Prince's Moon or even the Timothy Leary's Uranus. This is the type of anxiety which along with the slow march of the wounded healer, Chiron in mental Aquarius along with Neptune now @ 22 Aqua. Tonight's rather emotionally, murky lunation might best be described as the revelation that America is Driving Us Crazy.
SS 10 North Again
Just like the Solar Annual Eclipse of 2-7-08 we are in the Saros Series 10 North so the same principles apply. As B Brady said “there is a very strong emphasis on communication, and, at the same time, frustrating or inhibiting events may come into the person’s life via news, paperwork or a young person." Tonight's eclipse has a powerful direct Mercury bringing forth innovation and artistic revival being near Venus. The moon is fast approaching an exact Quincunx (a degree of adjustment) with Mercury which should offer healing and news of a woman in power dealing with difficult circumstances.
Earth is Waking Up - Earthquakes all over the globe.
Leading up to tonight's event their have been multiple strong quakes most notable the 7.4 Magnitude destructive temblor near the island of Simeulue in Sumatra Indonesia - near the site of the 2004 killer tsunami. Also the swarm of quakes continues in Baja California near a dormant volcano: "Cerro Prieto". This all started right on Feb. 9th (right after the last eclipse) and Cerro Prieto sits at the exact coordinates of the over 200 hundred quakes measuring as high as 5.3 magnitude. Latest updates for these coordinates 10-degree Map Centered at 35°N, 115°W. Other parts of the world are extremely active with a 6.1 Magnitude in Southern Greece, two 5.0 + in Hindu Kush plus a rare 5.5 Magnitude in the South Atlantic.
It is likely that even though lots of pressure is being released, by the time the March 7th Mars-Pluto opposition occurs a larger quakes or volcanoes will occur in the Western Hemisphere.
Update from Feb. 21, around 12 hours after this activating eclipse
