The loaded Eclipse season approaching fast with two Lunars and one Solar spread out through June and early July appears to be stirring the celestial ether ahead of time, as is often the case. Coronavirus may be ebbing pro tem but there are crises flaring up left, right and centre.
Hong Kong is descending into violence with angry demonstrations against China’s move to tighten control of the territory. There’s an escalation of tension between China and India over their Himalayan border with troops massing on both sides. The EU are caught between a rock and a hard place trying to put together a multi-billion euro recovery fund against heavy resistance from northern nations who won’t stomach a debt union. The UK is in political turmoil with the ruling party tearing itself apart over a ministerial aide. Trump is falling out as per usual with everyone, but most notably Twitter, on whose platform he relies for his rancid OCD spoutings.
The June 5th Lunar Eclipse at 16 degrees Sagittarius will oppose Trump’s 10th house Uranus which will give him a considerable career jolt. It also impacts the Twitter 21 March 2006 start chart with considerable aggravation, stirring up the Twitter Mars at 16 Gemini opposition Moon square Uranus Mercury. The EU’s 3rd house Saturn in Sagittarius and UK’s 3rd house Mercury in Sagittarius are also in the line of fire so will be respectively gloomy and highly strung – with veritable tower of babel discussions raging. It’ll shake up Canada’s Venus in Gemini for an emotional shock; and Australia’s Uranus in Sagittarius opposition Pluto in Gemini leading to financial disruptions.
The 21st June 2020 Solar Eclipse at zero degrees Cancer is associated with difficulties, restrictions, inhibitions, separations and illusions. Bernadette Brady remarks in The Eagle and the Lark that this eclipse brings blocks and ’the individual is prone to misjudging his or her strength and is best advised to wait before taking any real action.’ It was around previously in 2002, 1984, 1966, 1948, 1930 and 1912.
Located to Leh, Ladakh, India this chart puts an aggressive Mars on the Descendant and the New Moon conjunct the Midheaven, so it will be a critical region. This Eclipse is conjunct the India Mars exactly so will tend to bring a combative mood. See previous post May 19 2020.
This June Solar Eclipse also falls opposition the Hong Kong Midheaven at 2 Capricorn stirring up domestic woes in the months thereafter. It is also conjunct the EU last degree Gemini Midheaven for a good going predicament about future direction. Boris Johnson’s Government chart from December also catches it in opposition to the Jupiter which could suggest a laissez-faire approach will cause problems and an arrogant dismissal of criticism even more. Canada’s late Gemini Moon will also be conjunct which does suggest an emotionally unsettling few months ahead, taken together with the Canada Venus being rattled as well.
The second Lunar Eclipse on July 5th at 13 degrees Capricorn will be pivotal for the USA since the Full Moon is exactly on top of the USA 1776 Cancer Sun. And located to Washington, DC it puts an aggressive Mars on the Ascendant square Mercury on the IC, so what follows will be running controversies and heated debates. Located to London it’s also marked up as noteworthy with a lacklustre, dithery Neptune on the Midheaven – as key Brexit decisions are due.
These are just a few pointers. Do pitch in with any others and I’ll add them in and keep an eye through the next several months to see how they play out.
