Lunar Eclipse November 28th 2012 - Floods of Emotions and Water Begin

Here I am less than 48 hours before the big Lunar Eclipse set tor Wednesday, a Mercury ruled day of full throttle communications. Yeah here I am on a relaxed Taurus Moon checking out info. from Spaceweather about the visibility on Tuesday morning of the Venus/Saturn conjunction. Actually using geocentric and tropical orientation, Venus-Saturn met in Scorpio @ 5:19 PM @ 6 deg. Scorpio 06 min. (Sabian: "Deep-sea divers." Whereas says look southeast to find Venus and Saturn less than 1° apart in the constellation Virgo?! Got that wrong since even sidereally, Saturn and Venus would be in Libra... One thing is for sure Venus as a morning star is very bright, Saturn less but they stand out. Saturn transiting in pro-active yet emotionally deeper Scorpio has added to the drama breaking many taboos. like the Moon meeting Jupiter on the day of the Lunar Eclipse. Skipping ahead to: November 28th. Wednesday: Today we observe a penumbral lunar eclipse with the moon in Gemini @ 7 Degrees. (Sabian Symbol: "An old fashioned well.") This is the second of two lunar eclipses and occurs @ 6:46 AM PT or 9:46 AM ET. A chart below set for San Francisco/the West Coast showing the Grand TriAngle in Water Signs(Scorpio and Cancer) trine and pointing downward toward Neptune and Chiron in the 3rd. house of communications and transportation with Pisces also on the cusp of the IC where potential flooding could occur.
The Grand Trine has been building and now with Venus always representing moisture along with psychic foreboding in this article on the Forecast California Flood Threat From "Atmospheric River" Meteorologists use the term "atmospheric river" to describe a long, narrow plume piping deep moisture from the tropics into the mid-latitudes. One type of atmospheric river (hereafter, AR) is the "Pineapple Express", Amazingly, according to NOAA's Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL), a strong AR can transport as water vapor up to 15 times the average flow of liquid water at the mouth of the Mississippi River! Then the article goes on to echo shades of the Great Flood of 1862. In my blog back in January, 2011 I referenced the potential for a Biblical Inundation in California with Neptune's ingress and also with Saturn into Scorpio. Therefore, some locations, particularly in the coastal ranges of northwest California, could pick up over 10 inches of total rainfall through this weekend, leading to flash flooding and river flooding. The path of visibility is shown in the graphic below:

This eclipse is totally visible from on a path from Australia to Russia but only visible at moon rise across Africa and Europe. In the area of central Europe, especially Poland, Hungary, Romania and Turkey, the Moon is close to the Ascendant during the eclipse. Look for some major events in this Eastern European and Turkish region within two weeks of the eclipse. Expect some immediate effects in these central European countries. Observers in western Canada and the USA can also see the eclipse, with the moon setting occurring sometime after mid-eclipse. The eclipsed Moon will be conjunct Jupiter and conjunct the Hyades. The Moon-Jupiter occultation adds a zany even irrational feeling of buoyancy. Furthermore the Moon’s south node, will be conjunct fixed star Algol just like the Nov. 13th solar eclipse. Also like the Solar Eclipse, this highly mutable penumbral eclipse is at Saros Series 15 South reflecting a time when releasing tensions occurs. Some of the tensions releived could include the tectonic plates. Both eclipses symbolize a time of major clearing along with feelings of grief or loss on a collective level. In terms of extreme relationships, Venus-Pluto are sextile great passion and sexual magnetism.

The Solar Eclipse Releases Tensions, Unleashes Power for Renewal


All that is Hidden Comes to Light 

The Solar Eclipse occurs on Tuesday, Nov 13th is potentially an epic event. The Scorpio Moon will cast a shadow on the Earth. The Sun-Moon @ 22 degrees Scorpio are close to the N. Node of Destiny and along with the Lunar Eclipse on Nov. 28th will define the a collective and mass course of action for the next few months. The Sabian Symbol for 22 Scorpio: "Hunters starting out for ducks" There is a decided theme focused hiding behind a blind in order to manifest success. Yet in the process of hiding, there is disguise, camouflage and concealment. We might want to extrapolate and expand this theme to discovering the real motives behind the David Petraeus’ resignation/affair. Perhaps this entire incident hides much more than even the pronouncements by Paula Broadwell. Like many of the scandals that will continue to surface with Neptune direct square Mercury retro. in expansive Sagittarius, this one will continue to grow and bring in more players.

The last solar eclipse @ 22 degrees Scorpio, a sign relating to great destruction and ultimately renewal sometimes rising Phoenix like, was on Nov. 13, 1993. On that day in 1993, there was a 7.1 sea quake east of Kamchatka, a Chinese MD82 made a crash landing at Urumqi, 12 were killed and Pakistan minister of Foreign affairs Faruk Leghari elected president. In 2012, I have no doubt that this is a time when tedious circumstances will fall away and it will mark the beginning of of something entirely novel coming into existence. Some view eclipses as release and renewal points and this is especially true of Scorpio. This is a partial eclipse with the Scorpion/Eagle New Moon exact @ 2:08 PM PST or 10:08 PM UT, when the Sun-Moon are near the N Node of destiny in he sign of total intensity Scorpio . This eclipse occurs in Saros Series 15 South which is all about releasing tensions. This is a time when long-standing problems can be cleared, There is also a sense of grief or loss but on a collective not personal level. Eclipse totality will be visible from northern Australia and the southern Pacific Ocean. The most populous city to experience totality will be Cairns, which will experience 2 minutes of totality just an hour after daybreak (06:38 AEST, 20:38 UTC)

  More Major Earth Changes Coming to the Southern Hemisphere Too. Be alert for some major tectonic and volcanic activity in this entire area particularly South of Australia and New Zealand. A dynamic and powerful Solar Eclipse like this one is known to create massive havoc and in alignment with the Pluto-Uranus waxing square there will be a trail of earthquakes, volcanoes and other disasters associated with the Eclipse Also expect male political leaders to be more affected by this shadow over the Sun. We have already seen in the last two days that quakes have been traveling up and down the ring of fire from a 6.5 event Cape Yakataga, Alaska to 5.1 S of Masset, Canada to to SE of Belen, to a 6.5 WSW of Champerico, Guatemala, Guatemala to Costa Rica to a 5.0 NW of Salinas, Ecuador to a 5.0 ESE of Iquique, Chile down to a 6.0 Off the coast of Aisen, Chile. Update from the future - November 20th. from New Zealand: Panic on Mt Tongariro as volcano erupts! The Chart Below is set for eclipse totality in Cairns, AU @ 6:38 AM LMT Sagittarius is rising @ 8 degrees - Rocks and things forming therin.. Fixed star Antares will be closely Rising at the Ascendant Perpetuating, or being subjected to, polarizing events the Heliacal Rising Star is Arcturus situated on the left knee of the Herdsman, Bootes which seeks a new pathway as the hunter and pioneer. Al Rescha is the Heliacal Setting Star found in Pisces and is found in the Knot of the Cord, which binds the two Fishes by the tail. Al Rescha is about bringing together disparate ideas and finding solutions to old problems.

Closer to home in the USA, we see that the New Moon occurs @ 2:08 PM in San Francisco with Pisces rising @ 19 degrees - "A master instructing his pupil." This chart's rulers both Jupiter in the 3rd. house dealing with education, communications and transportation but retrograde in Gemini opposing Juno. All of these issues will be on tap for new innovations in the next six months. Then there is Neptune now direct and the modern ruler of the eclipse chart in the 12th house relating to overwhelming issues involving institutions form hospitals to prisons. Fixed Stars include Ras Alhague found in on the head of the Snake Charmer/Holder,Ophiuchus is Culminating at the Mid-heaven. Ras Alhague is primarily a healer who desires to make a difference by helping those who are wounded or damaged. The Heliacal Rising Star is Spica, the Staff of Wheat found in the Virgin's left hand. Spica always relates to gifts or talents needed to be used to help others. The Heliacal Setting Star over the West Coast is Hamal, a yellow star located on the forehead of Aries the Ram. Hamal relates to a strong will filled with determination and actively forging ahead even impulsively and thrives on challenges. A more negative side to Hamal is stated by Robson always the fear monger: "According to Ptolemy it is of the nature of Mars and Saturn; and, to Alvidas, of Venus and Saturn. It causes violence brutishness, cruelty and premeditated crime." We will soon see how this plays out in the SF. Bay Area. Notice that the Warrior Mars now void of course in Sagittarius sits at the top of the chart heading toward Pluto which reflects immense levels of power. Mars will move into Capricorn on Nov. 16th. and will finally conjunct Pluto near the next eclipse Nov. 27th. There are some fanatical and obsessive forces developing here on the West Coast which need to be watched so they can be harnessed.

Last but not least a chart set for this intense Solar Eclipse over Washington DC has Taurus rising the S. Node conjunct the obsessive demon star Algol. At the least this reflects the obsessive nature of politics and the confrontation of the Fiscal Cliff. Speaking of this dreaded fiscal cliff, where Venus (representing $$ and currency)is also ruler of this chart posited in the 5th house of speculation. Venus also is in a trine to Vesta in Gemini reflecting over intellectualized decision making and communications. In fact using the power of this investigative Scorpio eclipse let's look deeper into these alignments. Since issues of the past (S. Node) are opposing asteroid Astrea in Scorpio along with the Sun and Moon associated with a blood curdling debt of $16 Trillion. But according to the video below talking about the Grand Bargain: "let's establish that no one in Washington actually cares about balancing the budget. If they did, they would love this so-called Fiscal Cliff. It raises taxes and cuts spending, so it would massively reduce the deficit. Isn't that what all of Washington has been pretending to care about all of this time?"
Fortunately the harvest star Spica is rising while Mirach is the Heliacal Setting Star. Mirach is a star found in "in the Girdle of the Chained Woman" or Andromeda. Mirach is about being receptive to consensus by developing rapport. In this case Mirach relates to increased diplomacy not only outside our shores but within. Per Ebertin: Mirach has a tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creations, altruism, cheerfulness, happiness, love of company.  Mirach also is a star associated with earthquakes and in the DC area
we may see another event like the shocking 5.8 tremor that hit Mineral, VA back on Aug. 23, 2011.
This event was felt across more than a dozen U.S. states and in several Canadian provinces, and was felt by more people than any other quake in U.S. history.

Election 2012 - Mercury Retrograde, Voting Chaos amid Unbridled Enthusiasm


Update: Evening of November 6th. Despite the early election results with Obama declared a Winner!
Mercury is retrograde and there will be numerous challenges to this result and others. The day of the US Elections 2012 - November 6th. the same day that Mercury stations retrograde in Sagittarius, is illuminated by the Grand Fire Trine. Mercury, the Cosmic Messenger and often times trickster heads retro @ 3:04 PM Pacific.6:04 PM EST @ 5 degrees Sagittarius till Nov. 26th. Some things to know about Mercury Retrograde go here The Trickster is at it Again!
Mercury retrograde periods always involve a change of plans, meetings, rescheduling, reconsidering and caution with Grand Water Trine featuring Saturn(Scorpio)-Neptune(Pices) and Ceres (Cancer) adding an emotional intensity and psychic vibes...
we will also have a Grand Fire trine where action, enthusiasm, drama and theatre dominate as the Moon trines first Mercury then Juno/Mars in Sagittarius(independence/boistrous)along with Uranus in Aries - always a wild card, pioneer and revolutionary. This trine was a major boost for Obama reflecting his victory since Obama (born Aug. 4, 1961) with Mercury-Sun-Uranus and N.Node in Leo. Grand Fire trines also reflect both metaphorical and literal fires burning out of control.
In New Jersey:
Huge fire burning in New Jersey Review: The day of the US Elections - November 6th. the same day that Mercury stations retrograde in Sagittarius, is illuminated by the Grand Fire Trine

Not only could we have a repeat of the 2000 election but not in the sense of the presidential race-Obama is clearly a winner with the Moon in Leo and the Grand Fire Trine favoring him!
On other races including Senate seats and measures in many states we could be waiting for the results for days/weeks
Already according to the article below:
"We're looking at an election meltdown that is eerily similar to 2000, minus the hanging chads," said Dan Smith, a political science professor at the University of Florida.
Yes we are in for both massive delays and historic fireworks/action as a result.
Sandy may deter storm victims from voting and extend US election

A chart below is set for when Mercury stations retrograde in DC @ 6:04 PM EST
Gemini is rising in a close opposition to Mercury stationing retrograde @ 5 Sagittarius While Mercury sits on the 7th House Cusp both Mars-Juno(militant-crusading-independent) partnerships are firmly in the house of open enemies and cooperation... They oppose Jupiter (retro) and Vesta (focus) in dualistic Gemini adding to the duplicity and revisions needed to make this election reach a final vote.
The other chart below for the opening of the polls in he moring has Scorpio rising with Saturn in the 12th .
These are both intense and chaotic placements where some deception is present.
Notice too that N Node-Astraea (asteroid relating to justice) are conjunct Mercury stationing retrograde all in the first house
adding to a number of disruptions going forward.
Scorpio rising also relates to controversial and taboo subjects which are an integral part of this election.
Per Example: Marijuana Legalization May Pass In At Least 1 State This Year
State-level legalization would climax decades of struggle by reformers to convince voters that marijuana presents less of a threat to public safety than legal drugs, including alcohol. It would also show that pro-pot activists have learned from previous losses, like California's Proposition 19.
Since Mars and Pluto are the ancient and modern rulers of this chart and located in the money/investment house (2nd)
we could likely see some extreme swings in the stock markets.
Plus Mars-Juno are opposing Jupiter /Vesta in the  8th house which symbolizes debt and deficit.
chart below set for the normal time of opening of the polls in Washington, DC @ 7 AM EST
A symbolic time to start the   USA General Elections on Nov. 6th.
