Jan 20

THE SUPER BLOOD WOLF MOON

The astro highlight of this week has to be the SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse peaking directly over Washington, shortly after midnight of January 21 at 00.16 hours. Culturally, in the northern hemisphere this was known as the Wolf Moon of the mid-winter. So this one is wearing the rather grisly title of Super Blood Wolf Moon.

The Supermoon is when a New or Full Moon makes a simultaneous closest approach to Earth. The increased size and gravitational pull, up to 17%, can correlate with wild weather patterns, geological shifts and anecdotally at least, an increase in erratic human behaviour. The push pull effect of the Moon in opposition with the Sun has a polarising effect. More so at eclipse time. This one's a doozy.

The Lunar Eclipse is culminating exactly over Washington DC, a destination that is already about as polarising as it gets. And it gets far more interesting. There is a clear connection of this eclipse with presidential inaugurations. They take place on January 20. The eclipse reaches its totality barely a quarter hour into the 21st.

The relevance being that the Sun position of this lunar eclipse is conjunct the Sun position of the last inauguration of Donald Trump. So close in fact that there is only one minute of arc separating the two. The Moon on the other hand, identifies with the public mood and in particular females.

Is this celestial symbolism mirroring the stand-off between the male President, Donald Trump and the female Leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi? Is it timing the President's dwindling public support? Polls have drifted to a 15% negative margin since the President orchestrated the partial government shutdown. Just who might be baying for blood under this Wolf Moon? There's much more to this eclipse.

DEFINING THE YEARLY THEME

Almost all eclipses are part of an ongoing pattern, resulting in a second eclipse opposing the degree of the first, six months down the track. This is especially useful when it comes to political forecasting, as there is a clear axis of the zodiac highlighted by the two eclipses. Put together they illustrate a theme, which I'll come to shortly.

Additionally, any lunar eclipse must come attached to a solar eclipse, each separated by fifteen days. The Solar one is a New Moon, the Lunar the Full Moon. I covered the Solar Eclipse a fortnight back – here's the link - but it's useful to reiterate the root theme. The January 5 Solar Eclipse opposed the USA's July 4 1776 birth Sun. The Sun represents the leader.

This Lunar Eclipse of January 21, opposes the leader's inauguration, or the moment that the individual is legally sworn in as President. Without getting too far ahead here, the next Solar Eclipse will occur July 2 2019, effectively eclipsing the USA's birth Sun. So the general idea is of the leadership is being eclipsed – at least from the astrological perspective.

HISTORICAL RELEVANCE

The next move is to look at a bigger picture. Eclipses tie in with larger time cycles. The first three eclipses of 2019 match closely those of 1973. It's not only the eclipses doing that, but so does the planet Mercury. Headlining Mercury will appear in the same signs on virtually the same days, plus turn retrograde and direct in a duplicate pattern to 1973. This year's news cycle will be very similar to 1973.

That's where things get extremely interesting in Washington. Four days following the January 4 1973 Solar Eclipse, five men pleaded guilty to the burglary of the Democrat headquarters at Watergate. Then Richard Nixon was sworn in for a second term two days after the January 18 1973 Lunar Eclipse, but with public opinion gradually turning against him.

On February 8 1973, a special Senate Committee was formed to investigate the President's re-election team. Note that coincidentally on February 7 this year, Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen is due to appear before a congressional panel, as part of the investigations into the legitimacy of the current President.

1973 wasn't the best year for Trump either. It's when the Department of Justice decided to bring charges against the Trump Management Corporation, for racial discrimination re their rental accomodations. But back to this Lunar Eclipse. It has much more to offer the theory of history repeating – albeit with different actors playing the lead roles.

The Moon position of this Lunar Eclipse is 00LEO51. It matches the Sun position of July 23 1973, the day when President Richard Nixon refused to hand over White House tapes containing clear evidence of his obstruction of justice. And that's despite eighteen and a half minutes of conversation between Nixon and his Chief of Staff, Harry Haldeman, being conveniently erased.

Will that history repeating theme equate to Trump not releasing requested information or refusing the invitation for a Mueller interview? No doubt Mueller's questions would be far removed from the sycophantically supportive Sean Hannity or Jean Pirro of Fox News. Nixon's tapes were eventually subpoenaed, when he refused to co-operate. They became the smoking gun that took him out.

THE INAUGURATION CONNECTIONS

The Lunar Eclipse takes place in Washington on January 21, traditionally the day after presidential inaugurations. As mentioned prior, the position of the Aquarian Sun at the exact moment of the eclipse will be within one minute of the Sun's position when Donald Trump was sworn in. One minute is as close you'd want for an exact conjunction.

It makes sense to superimpose the Lunar Eclipse over the Trump inauguration chart to check for any other important contacts. They immediately become obvious. The South Node, considered a challenging influence, traditionally related to the karmic past, comes to the Midheaven of the Trump inauguration chart.

Mercury is brought to just over a degree away, but will be moving across the Midheaven the day after the eclipse. The celestial news maker, positioned at the Midheaven, suggests some important breaking story right around the eclipse date.

Mercenary Mercury is also the planet of commercial enterprises, documents and agreements. Already we know that the Democrat controlled Congress aim to investigate the President's business dealings, including his tax records, and dig into his financial past.

At Trump's swearing in the traditional malefics, Mars and Saturn were in a tight square. At the Lunar Eclipse Mars and Saturn will again be in a close square. There is plenty in this eclipse, directly over Capitol Hill, that locks in with the Inauguration chart in multiple manner. And by March the transit of sudden reversal Uranus will square both the eclipse and inauguration Suns.

Lastly this eclipse will semisquare Jupiter, the planet of judicial matters, courts and law. It's all adding up. And soon.

Do I have anything else to add about 1973? Well, not this week. Other than 1973 was when Great Britain joined the European Union and right now they're seeking a new deal. But that's another story. And it's being well investiagted by my fellow astrologer and English pal, Paul Saunders. Google him. You won't regret it.
