This image shows the trajectory of the Eclipse, and it covers the nations middle - its center or heart. Every time an eclipse passes over a country, trouble usually comes within the next 6 months, often in the form of natural disasters. It also lasts for 7.5 minutes acrosss the nation, while most last 2 minutes. This is nearly 4 times the usual amount of darkness. The Sun is our life force. When the Sun is blocked for this long, our souls are being deeply affected by this loss. We are weakened AND awakened, and we are forced to look within and find ourselves, our purpose and our connection to Source.
But eclipses are tricky in that their influence lasts for 6 months. Next February this eclipse will reach its destination and then trigger yet another eclipse, though only a partial eclipse. So anytime between now and February the intensity of this energy can be felt. But there are are a lot of aspects pointing to late September to late November as the strongest trigger times. However, the actual eclipse date has so much potency, I suspect something will be revealed then, while the full impact may not appear for a couple of months.
But because so many other planets are involved on this date, especially Mars, the God of War (exactly conjunct), many fear that war could erupt, rather suddenly, and create a great big mess for everyone. Uranus, or impulsiveness, is opposing this energy making crazy a strong possibility. Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are in the mix as well, as is Chiron, the wounded healer, making us look at our Karma very deeply. It's a kick in the butt time for us.
The Eclipse does not run through Washington DC, but it does greatly affect our President. This eclipse sits on his natal mars (which is what makes him so aggressive and verbally abusive). It is his first house, or his body and personality. Possible scenarios are health declines as well as possible assassination attempts; he acts impulsively and gets us into war or some kind of chaos or someone attacks us and he responds without thinking it through. There is also a strong possibility of resignation or impeachment. You get the idea. He's going to be under a great deal of stress during the next six months and his Mars in the first house is not going to take it well. We are about to see an even more upset President than we've seen to date. Regulus, the King Maker and Protector Star, is also right near Mars in his chart. This is what has protected him most of his life, like a get out of jail free card over and over. But Regulus has one hard core rule, you cannot use your position to exact revenge upon someone else. And his constant belittling of Obama has been relentless and he has opened the doors for Regulus to stop protecting him.
Regulus has ruled Leo, his rising sign, for a very long time. But Regulus has moved into Virgo now, so Virgo's are now under his protection, not Leo's AND most exciting is the fact that in Leo Regulus ruled Kings', but now in Virgo he rules the Feminine/Queens, so this is the beginning of the protection of women, the elevation of women to leadership, and making women into Kings and they will bring feminine values with them - 6th house Virgo traits of taking care of each other, handling your responsibilities, nurturing, taking care of people, elderly, pets, etc. Being caring is not weakness, its the foundation of a society. If we are always out for ourselves, society has no place to go but down. We built it up again by being a Village and taking care of US not ME. This combined with the energy of Eris bringing justice, the feminine energy will have a great deal to do with the changing of our society.
If you personally have planets 27-2 degrees in your chart, how does the eclipse affect you? Is it a trine or sextile (oh goody), or is it an opposition or square (lessons to be learned)? Generally speaking Scorpio and Taurus square the eclipse, so if this is your Sun or other planets in these places, look for learning experiences. The key is to go with the flow. This is about jumping into the stream, not putting your toe in. You've had a long time to work on you, per my blogs, now is the time when the Universe says "I hope you have your diving gear on cause we're going to go to the depths and then to the heights to shake you up and get you to be a wholly spiritual being and chuck the BS of our current world" - which is destroying the planet and our people. In some ways we are losing some of our free will because we've screwed up in such big ways that the Universe has to balance things out.
The August 7th Eclipse was in Aquarius/Uranus which politically represents "we the people". Over the last couple of decades the people have been silenced. We are referred to as the "little people" who don't matter. The only voices our politicians seem to listen to are the 1% and discarding the 99% because we aren't making them rich and powerful. There has ALREADY been a coup in this country, where the so called Elites have shredded the constitution and decided they know better and we should shut up. Well this eclipse is triggering Revolution. The people have had it. The time of pushing back is here and you can expect this is only the beginning of protesting and of "little people" running for office. "I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore" is here and eclipse energy will fuel it.
Which takes us to the Gifts of the Eclipse. Yes, its not all bad!! Energy always has two parts, Yin and Yang, an equal and opposite reaction. While Power may be in trouble, and the country itself may face big natural disasters (I have read about record tornado's coming for the midwest this year), it has the reverse effect of being a NEW MOON that can affect us personally in very good ways. The eclipse of the 7th took things away, and this eclipse of the 21st, brings to us good things that will replace what has been lost. It will bring real opportunity on steroids with new moon, Sun and Mars in Leo and eclipse energy. Its rocket fuel added to an already "try the new" energy. It is a time when we can really jump into a new way of living; join a group for change and really take it to a new level; join the human race in creating networks to fight against the status quo, all being supported by the Universe who wants us to work from the heart, not the wallet.
When you go to bed at night, ASK for guidance in your dreams. Ask for opportunities and people to cross your path and help you to join the right groups or organizations. Ask for help in the changes you want to make in life. Ask to be part of the change, the evolution and the revolution. God is asking us to step up and be spiritual warriors. We are fighting for a new world, and it's THE REASON WE ARE HERE NOW. We came here to be part of the growth and change. Talk to the Universe and ask to be included and you'll be very surprised how many new options open up in your life. Be a co-creator. Work off your old Karma and be free of it. Your spiritual life is so important now, don't put it on the back burner. It's now or never. And lets all take the time to ask for God to bring enlightenment to trump. His chart is filled with power. He was meant to be this important person, but with his Moon in eclipse when he was born, he took the lower vibration and lives on that realm. Pray that his Heart Chakra open and he join his Higher Self and be the "King" Regulus would hope he could be. With love all things are possible. We must love one another, and wish the best for one another, to make the new world work.
I also want to tell you about Pluto, the phoenix rising from the ashes, the ruler of power and the status quo. Uranus has been working hard for 7 years to make Pluto drop the protection of bad practices by power, and Pluto is on the verge of doing just that. The USA is having a Pluto return, which means the place in the skies it rested on July 4, 1776 has returned full circle again. In 2021, Pluto "returns" to where it was when our country was founded. The next 3 years is the end of the cycle, the tearing down to make way for the new - the second American Revolution, which on some levels will not be fun or pretty. The phoenix preparing to rise from the ashes must produce the ashes first. Much will be lost and broken down during these times, to make way for the new. But it can be lessened by our prayers, our Higher Road thinking and acting.
in Jan 2021, when a new President takes power, our nation will be ready to rebuild, create new dynamics, new rules, new societal standards. it's time to fight for what's right. It's time to heal our nation. It's time to bond with your neighbors and find common ground. It is we the people against power, not Red States vs Blue States. We must come together. We all want the same things, but the media and the power brokers muddy the waters so we won't come together, because if we do, they will lose their power and the people will rule, and the original idea of this country is restored. There is very important work ahead, so connect to your Higher Self to bring God's will on Earth. The revolution is here. I can tell you from the 60's, it was awful and wonderful simultaneously. We are here again. The 60's was a rehearsal, and this is the live performance.
And finally, I want to remind you that the Earth herself is evolving. We must join her, help her grow by evolving ourselves. it's all about heart. Love really is the answer, now we just have to live it, consciously, every day.
Blessings to you all. Yvonne
