Shadows Converge Before the Light Returns


Since the "Big Lunar Eclipse" on Saturday Dec. 10th, risks and reverberations have been felt
from the Philippines where the death toll from Typhoon Wali now tops 927 to Egyptian violence to a volcano erupting west of Yemen near Saba Island in the Red Sea happening on Monday.
In fact we even had Giant Tsunami-Shape Clouds Roll Across Alabama Sky on Friday (Dec. 16), their crests surging forward in slow motion.

Brace yourselves things are about to get even wilder as we head toward the Winter Solstice
and Capricorn New Moon (Dec. 24th. Just tonight at Candlestick park there were two power outages
at the SF 49nr Pittsburgh game
- one at 5:20 PM and the second at 6:43 PM. Both times Cancer was rising with the ruler the Moon moving closer to Saturn in Libra TSQ Venus and Jupiter. The first time Cancer rising was square Uranus in Cancer at Mid-Heaven. Uranus is associated with unexpected power outages and as we move toward the Sun's ingress into Capricorn (Dec. 21st/22nd depending on time zones, we should expect more electrical shockers since the Sun SQ Uranus exactly
@ Dec. 22nd @ 2:15 PM PST.
Here on the West Coast Leo is rising @ 28 degrees when the Sun moves into Capricorn
The Sabian is a mermaid rises from the ocean.

West Coast Port Shutdown 12/12/2011 or The Empire Strikes Back?


I mentioned in my latest blog entry that Antares and Algol the Heliacal Rising and Setting stars
for yesterday's eclipse over the Western States will engender a type of obsessive passion that will burn like a forest fire. What form will these passions take? Undoubted with Uranus now stationing direct in Aries, there will be new technologies, discoveries and efforts to promote freedom/independence. Also in line with Uranus applying to an exact square to Pluto, their will be some massive protests, dissent and rallies.
One of the major protests after yesterday's incredible Lunar Total Eclipseis a blockade or planned shut down starting with the Port of Oakland We are in a time of major upheaval and populist movements like the Occupy Wall street group or the Tea Party have symbolized a time dangerous confrontation and contentious politics.

Let's backtrack and take a look at how the current Uranus (radical) square to Pluto (transformation-power struggles) is similar to the last transit in 1931 to 1934. Back then their also was a depression when survival needs and self-preservation took a back seat to the loss of liberties. In Germany, one of the most famous tyrants of all time, Hitler moved in to restore order amid chaos. Today we could be on the threshold of more staged events where the Latin expression ORDO AB CHAO drives the the Hegelian Dialect better known as Problem-Reaction-Solution. Below is a video make by George4Title when over 200 were arrested at Occupy LA on November 30th. Mars entered Virgo on Nov. 10th and Mercury stationed retrograde on Nov. 23rd. and the first square occurred on Dec. 4th First Mars was square the Sun in Sagittarius (Dec. 2nd) a time when leaders opt for takeovers like S 1867 the indefinite detention bill Passes Senate 93-7.

So tomorrow @ 5:30 AM PST, the West Coast Occupy movement (Seattle, Oakland, Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Diego, Tacoma, and others) has called for a shutdown in solidarity with ILWU Local 21 in Longview, Washington in their struggle against EGT, and the port truckers’ struggle with Goldman Sachs. Will this action end in a similar fate that the Nov. 17, 2011 attempt to shut down Wall Street met? Take a look at the chart set for Oakland, CA. Scorpio is rising @ 27 degrees 23 minutes Scorpio adding the energy of revenge, retribution and obsession. Mercury ready to station direct is intercepted in the first house with the N Node and the Sun in expansive Sagittarius with over zealous missionary zeal. Right at Mid-Heaven is that critical and cutting Mars in Virgo closely TSQUARE the Nodes of destiny. Pisces on the IC relates to ports, ocean travel and ships and with Chiron right on that point, both physical and psychological wounding will occur. I suspect that a massive police action will be in store for the demonstrators. Mars is in a wide opposition to Ceres (letting go) and Uranus (unexpected-explosive events) at ground zero, the port of Oakland.

Occupy Wall Street Shutdown on Nov. 17, 2011 - Similar Event
Back on Nov. 17th. the police foiled attempts by the OWS to shut down Wall Street. On Nov. 17th a chart set for 7:00 AM EST when the protest began, Scorpio was rising @ 27 degrees and Mars, the ancient ruler was near Mid-Heaven in Virgo. Notice

Obsessive Fixed Stars Over a Blood Red Eclipse - Part Two


We are only a few hours away from tomorrow's Total Lunar Eclipse on Dec 10th @ 6:36 AM PST or 9:36 AM EST. Most people can feel that something huge is building up or is just hype as we move towards this monumental sky show on the Sagittarius/Gemini axis. This is the axis of expansion vs. discrimination. On one side the "war horse" and on the other the "twins or lovers."
The image of the "War Horse" will capture the imagination of movie goers and is fitting for this
eclipse framed by the Sun-N Node of destiny in the sign of the centaur, Sagittarius.

Approaching the eclipse, the earth seems to be shaking a little more with three earthquakes striking Gorda plate near northern California. It is a crazy time and with Mars particularly strong over the last couple of days, we are seeing weird attacks from VA Tech to a gunmen in Hollywood, CA. shooting at cars.

Whether the eclipse chart is set for the West Coast where Sagittarius is rising with the North Node or in Jersualem @ 4:36 PM EET - 2:00 where Gemini is rising, both charts have the warrior planet Mars is at the apex of the mutable grand cross. On the West Coast, Mars is In the chart below Gemini is rising with the Moon and S Node (past history) opposing the Sun-N Node in the 7th with that TSQ arrow point down to the 4th house which represents this ancient land, its values as real estate and agriculture, housing and living conditions. Uranus, the wild card of sudden events is stationing direct in the 10th house.
The 10th house in this case rules the government, the leadership along with national reputation and prestige, world opinion... In both charts Antares is the Heliacal Rising Star thus events are driven by passion and obsession. There is a strong potential for ruthless behavior. We can only pray that this combination won't set off the Israel-Iran-Syrian powder-keg and the planned war via will be derailed. In this video George Galloway nails the misconception and destroys the premise
that an "Orwellian" strategic strike against Iran is a good thing.

Visibility and Self-Proclaimed Prophecies Abound
Even though the eclipse is visible here on the West Coast Alaska, northern Canada, Australia, New Zealand, it is central Asia and eastern Asia. where the eclipse can be best viewed and photographed. That would include Jerusalem for those rather obsessive prophets of the apocalypse and progenitors of an armageddon like Paul Begly.
One thing is for sure with the mutable cross is that volatility is the rule along with instability. Don't believe everything you hear and see especially when religion is involved.

Fixed Stars for the Eclipse Over the West Coast.
When we look at the chart set for the Full Moon on the West Coast we see that Facies, the eye of the archer is rising with Jupiter (the chart's ruler). Since Facies is said to have the penetrating stare of a lethal, deadly weapon. With Jupiter there can be abrasive religious or philosophical views that relate well to religious zealots of all kind.
Let's take a second look at the main stars over the West Coast and DC.
Antares - the Heart of the Scorpion is the Heliacal Rising Star. Antares reflects a time driven by passion, obsession and compulsion. Antares is said to have the nature of Mars and Jupiter. Per Robson, Antares causes malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, broad-mindedness, evil presages and danger of fatality and makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy.
Algol in the constellation, Perseus is the Setting Star which will also whip up passions which can either create or destroy. Algol when it is setting also refers to how to calm hysterical situations in the time of ultimate crisis. Algol is also in aspect to the rising degree in the Total Eclipse set for London, UK.

Other Fixed Stars on the West Coast include Zosma, the back of the Nemean Lion, near the tail that was crushed by Hercules in legend. This star is synonomous with victimization. (Zosma is the Persian word meaning "the Girdle", "Enzonement" or "Loincloth".) Zosma is is culminating with Mercury which puts a special focus on both injustice and the underdog.

In the chart set for Washington DC besides Antares and Algol as the Heliacal Rising and Setting Stars, Deneb Adige is rising with Mars. Deneb Adige is a brilliant white star in the tail of the Swan or constellation Cygnus. According to Brady, this represents a noble warrior, who acts from their principles. Since Deneb Adige is also called the shaman's star relating to the spiritual warrior we might infer that whoever this person or persons is will have a mystical or transcendental quality. My guess is that this "noble warrior" will not be from the ranks of the DC elite. Another star that will play a big part in the communication style arising from this eclipse will be Markab which is rising as Mercury is culminating. Markab is a white star on the wing of the flying horse Pegasus. Markab is also known as the saddle of Pegasus and represents some stability which is sorely needed. This combo is said to value a logical argument, to build on one’s knowledge per authority. Per Robson and an older interpretation of Markab with Mercury: "A good mind, yet rash and headstrong, quick in speech, diplomatic, capable writer, criticized, friends become enemies."

Historic Total Lunar Eclipse Set for December 10, 2011 - Part One


As I write this we are less than 4 days away from not only one of literally one of the largest
and most spectacular eclipses of the year. However we look at this coming Full Moon on Dec. 10th.
the third act keeps getting more and more melodramatic and down right scary. The God of War and aggression transiting in cutting, critical Virgo seems to be helping rewrite laws and history as the editor. Yes Mars in squares to both Mercury and the Sun in Sagittarius is expanding aggressiveness in some form. We are seeing nations from those in the Arab bloc to Argentina promoting a contentious and confronting attitude. Mars is also about military governments who use the threat of war or force as a way of controlling their people. Thanks to S1867 the population of the US. is the enemy on the battlefield of AMERICA.
We are in a time of massive contradiction, dualism and reflected in this highly mutable Full Moon.
Sagittarius, the optimist and exaggerator is rising on the West Coast @ 10 degrees after Mercury (ready to station direct on Dec. 13th) Antares is the Heliacal Rising star which along with Bellatrix can bring war and strife. The Native American Indians called this moon: The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon. This Full Moon traditionally marks a time when cold, freezing weather takes over and the long, dark mid-winter night begins.

This coming Full Moon on Dec. 10th. reflects a tense vibe, mounting stress in world affairs so that the third act in this melodrama keeps getting weirder and bizarre. We might even say down right scary. The God of War and aggression transiting in cutting, critical Virgo seems to be helping rewrite laws and history as the editor. Yes Mars in squares to both Mercury and the Sun in Sagittarius is expanding aggressiveness in some form. We are seeing nations from those hot spots in the Middle East from Iran to Syria North America where Argentina
is even rattling the sabers over the Falklands again
. All of this hyper arrogance and braggadocio is starting to get vicious by promoting a contentious and confronting attitude. Mars is also about military governments who use the threat of war or force as a way of controlling their people. Thanks to S1867 the entire population of the US. is an enemy on the battlefield of AMERICA. Also with the ongoing Uranus and the collapse of the global economy per Uranus stationing direct
In the video below, a British analyst informs everyone that the US has its army on standby against the Occupy and student movement as the economic situation in America deteriorates day by day.

Just the Eclipse Facts.
This historic lunation begins around 4:45 am Pacific Standard Time when the dusty red shadow of Earth first falls across the lunar disk. By 6:05 am Pacific Time, the Moon will be fully engulfed in red light. This event—the last total lunar eclipse until 2014—is visible from the Pacific side of North America, across the entire Pacific Ocean to Asia and Eastern Europe
Visibility Map Below:

I mentioned in my last blog entry that this eclipse and the preceding partial solar eclipse on Nov.24th/25th is part of Saros Series 14 North. This Saros series began on April 29, 1074. Not only will this S. Series presage some trying and difficult times ahead but it is the counterpart to Total Lunar Eclipse @ 25 Sagittarius on June 15, 2011: both of these are particularly potent and have a central Grand Mutable Cross. So far the June 15th eclipse has been
life-changing on so many macro levels that the blood red lunar eclipse this Saturday should be even more strangely transformative.
"This is a most peculiar eclipse family, heralding an acute time in personal relationships, unexpected happenings in financial matters and potential illness. Unrequited love, confusion a draining of energy and a peculiar turn of events. No important decisions should be made during this time as there is too much confusion and delusion. "

Symbolically we are talking about a classic "blood red" Moon of anger, passion and obsession. The type of moon when Antares, "the Heart of the Scorpion" is rising on the West and East Coast. This super-sized moon will will appear to be huge, inflated due to an illusion. It is known that low-hanging Moons seem to be unnaturally large when they beam through trees, buildings and other objects. And the exact hue (anything from bright orange to blood red is possible) depends on the unpredictable state of the atmosphere at the time of the eclipse.
Talk about unpredictable, Uranus stations direct in the sign of primal fire, Aries with the ruler
Mars in mutable at the apex of close TSQ to the Moon/S Node (Gemini) and the Sun/N Node in the sign of exaggeration Sagittarius. Lest we forget, Ceres in oceanic, sensitive Pisces is holds down the last arm of the cross opposing Mars/Astraea (Military Justice). Expect over the top stories about martial law, sports, big animals, horses, banking collapse, explosions, weapons, aviation, alien contact - you know the drill. Anything can happen and it probably will.
