The eclipse of February 25, 2017 is a complex array of aspects generating a lot energy bound to create a second wave of the tsunami released in Sept. 1 2016 which brought a completely different ethos, not only through the election in the U.S. but in the whole political and intellectual world nestled in on a troubled and growing more toxic (everyday) planet. Indeed this 8:12 Pisces is only one degree from exactly opposite 9:21 of Virgo eclipse last fall.
The focus on the planet Neptune is the key, since it participates by hard aspect to both. Indeed this second eclipse has Mercury, South Node and Neptune all within 10 degrees. One might argue that the learning triangle (a la Huber) offers the hope that there are lessons to be learned which might ease the deep impact of the tide of tension to be offered up by the clap of the solar wind.
First the opposition of these two Virgo/Pisces eclipses is to further present the dichotomy revealed. The polarization of liberal and conservative view points which cut open the festering extremist opinions on both sides. This ideological morass is breeding its own toxic poison engulfing us all. The clash of political factions will continue to galvanize even more cavernous breeches in how the dominate ethnicity currents in swirling spiral of momentum that has to be controlled to nurture some life affirming bilateral cooperation.
How can the growing climate change continue to be denied by certain factions of governing institutions? Change must come and hopefully the Saturn in Sag and Uranus in Aries trine will bring some structure to the evolving rebellious and yet inventive vortex of the Learning Triangle. It is one thing to tell someone that they need to learn a needed lesson of what to keep and what to let go of. Yet when this is projected on to the multiple problems facing the world – what are we to expect, how to articulate such a lesson. Even among the hints that there will there possibly be greater violence. This is a lesson that we want to avoid, obviously.
President Trump at this junction be facing the world problems for one month by this eclipse. Analysis of the eclipse on his natal chart leaves even the most positive astrologer to worry. The eclipse will generate a transiting yod on his Pluto and Neptune sextile — along with a transiting grand trine Mars, Mars Moon with Jupiter the kite opposing to transit mars. A lot of Mars energy mulling around in this “un-drained swamp” and the yod energy bringing an unclear difficult time for things to get sorted out. And the cherry on the top is another damned “learning triangle.”
I am not an anarchist, but if I were I would be more than cheering at these turn of events, supposing in my view that institutions will be under stress and things could well be on the brink. While we have the immediacy of the internet and we can all know what is happening as it happens and therein lies a hope. The fact is that fact itself has become a relative term. Facts are invented–and this is the Neptune influence of dissolving all structures into a soup that remains a boiling jello until this ideological lava is able to cool into a new and hopefully stronger cast or format. Truth has been poisoned, can it survive?
This Neptune power point in the code of our own DNA is something to behold. Our political and geological pollution of our environment is upon us. And we will all be able to bear witness to this unfurling ribbon that draws us into a future. We are in the twilight of the world structure since 1945, which started with a nuclear blast and was shepherded by the US to this juncture which will bring to experience a larger flux. There will be a different leadership hatched by the coming eclipses and the eclipse in Leo will be the clue. If only this were a movie, at least someone would be in charge of producing the ending that has crowd appeal and could generate box office. Trump will play a staring role, but other actors will challenge for the leading role and in the defining moment the drama will be intense. Where is Shakespeare? What would he write if they were one of his histories?
