TWIN ECLIPSES HIGHLIGHT RUSSIAN INFILTRATION

We've just had a Solar Eclipse in the 21st degree of Cancer. Over the last two centuries there has only been one solar eclipse to occur within a degree of that eclipse. That's quite rare. The other eclipse in question occurred on July 11 2010, in the 20th degree of Cancer.

Two days before the 2010 Cancer eclipse, the breaking news was a headline revival of the Cold War. Ten Russian spies had been uncovered and arrested in the United States. They had gone to great lengths over many years to blend into middle class society, posing as average American citizens and families.

An FBI operation, codenamed Ghost Stories, gradually exposed the 'sleepers' over years of surveillance gathering, wireless interceptions and monitoring. The spies had been issued with fake passports, names and identifications and were being financed by GRU, Russian intelligence.

Upon the agents arrests, evidence was presented revealing drop-offs, burial and reclamation of cash amounts and covert meetings between the various operatives. They would also use cryptographic software to disguise messages within digital images posted over the Internet. They were charged with not registering as foreign agents.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE

On July 09 2010, the story broke in the Washington Post and New York Times and was covered by the BBC and Guardian in England. On the same day the ten spies were part of a secret agent swap that took place at Vienna airport. They were awarded Russia's highest honours by the Russian President President Dmitry Medvedev, on their return to the Kremlin.

The spy swap was the biggest since the start of the Cold War. Yet the incident was played down between the governments of the USA and Russia, so not to derail impending talks between Barack Obama and Medvedev. One of the exchange spies returned to the west was Sergei Skripal, a former colonel for Russian military intelligence, who had supplied information on many KGB operatives.

Sergei Skripal and his visiting daughter, Yulei, became victims of the sensational novichok poisoning episode in Salisbury on March 4 this year. That created an international crisis leading to the expulsion of hundreds of Russian diplomats, with reciprocal action from Russia. On the eve of this eclipse July another two victims were treated for novichok poisoning with Dawn Sturgess becoming the first fatality.

HACKERS AND HUCKSTERS

If the only eclipse within the same degree in Cancer produced the largest spy swap since the Cold War, it's no surprise that the June 13 2018 solar eclipse has again brought Russian spying and intelligence operations back into the headline – right on eclipse day.

On Friday, US Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, indicted twelve Russian military intelligence offices, charged with hacking the Democrat's computers, data theft and subsequent distribution of the stolen information to disrupt the American elections.

The officers were each named in what is the most detailed evidence yet of implanting malicious malware and computer codes, distributing the stolen information via pseudonyms such as Guccifer 2.0, contacting those close to the Trump campaign, all in an attempt to sway voters opinion away from Hillary Clinton and toward Trump.

President Trump, was briefed on the charges earlier in the week. They come as he is due to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16. The prosecution alleges the Russians also conspired with Wikileaks to publish the hacked material. Wikileaks published the hacks on the eve of the Democratic convention.

If the strange correlation between this eclipse and the one of eight years ago, concerning Russian spying, is cosmic coincidence, it's not the only one. The other 'coincidental' date match is that of the upcoming July 27 lunar eclipse and the events of July 27 2016.

On July 27 2016, with most of America in the dark re the Russian involvement, Donald Trump made an unusual request. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.” The weird timing of Trump's comments suggests the possibility he had some knowledge of what was going on.

Friday's indictment alleges that in the identical time frame of Trump's ask, “the conspirators attempted after hours to spearphish, for the first time, email accounts at a domain hosted by a third-party provider and used by Clinton’s personal office. At or around the same time, they also targeted seventy-six email addresses at the domain for the Clinton campaign.”

Further timings casts further serious doubt re the Trump campaign's involvement . The Russian website of DC Leaks was set up in June 2016 to disseminate hacked information. The controversial Trump Tower meeting with Russian operatives took place at 1600 hours on June 9. That meeting came to light following earlier denials by Donald Trump Jnr over any connection with Russians.

Only after the threat of the New York Times publishing his emails did Trump Jnr come clean. It's a familiar theme for Trump's associates, from Mike Flynn to Paul Manafort to Roger Stone. Only when confronted with the irrefutable evidence do any admissions of 'forgetfulness' appear. Other than that the strategy is one of concealment, denial, cries of 'witch hunt' and denigration of the FBI.

There is a concerning factor to all of this. Despite the efforts of diligent investigators, it's in the court of public opinion that political changes take place. Even after President Richard Nixon had to get wife Pat to call the family dog, because it wouldn't believe him, half of the American public still did.

That partisan bias persisted until his resignation. A stunning fact when viewed in hindsight. Astrological technique has no such bias, even if interpretation can lean one way or the other. But repetitive signals are impossible to ignore.

THE INGRESS TELLS THE STORY

The traditional predictive technique of the Ingress (or seasonal) charts cast for the capital of the country have been used for centuries as an indicator of political trends. The horoscopes of the Aries and Cancer Ingress over Washington in 2018 plainly show with Neptune at the Midheaven – and a cloud of obfuscation hanging over the administration.

It's a pattern repeated also in the Solar Return or birthday horoscope of the USA in 2018. The last time that this occurred so repetitively, with Neptune at the Midheaven of both the Aries and Cancer Ingress charts plus also at the Midheaven of the USA's Solar Return was in 2001. That was the year of 911. Shown below is the Cancer Ingress prior to those attacks.


This controversy eroding the national leadership and credibility can be equally dangerous for the country. And the eclipse cycles are making that even more obvious. The next month is crucial. It's probably why the Deputy Attorney General added some advice following these detailed revelations.

“When we confront foreign interference in American elections, it is important for us to avoid thinking politically as Republicans or Democrats and instead to think patriotically as Americans.” Something that even the President would do well to follow. Because, as eclipses prove, you're never too big to fall.

Aries or Aries Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies are impacting on your inner world, often associated with your private life, family and/or emotional security. It's in these immediate areas that you can effect the greatest changes. For younger Arians this may even spell the relationship with parents for example. Another features is how you exercise control - or are needing to - within the family or home environment. And also how the outer world of profession or public calling, affects your immediate living circumstances. And as previously mentioned this can also affect anything from a move to renovation or rezoning. To look at your own personal chart, organise a personal and/or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin.

Taurus or Taurus Rising weekly horoscope: Communication is as effective as the response it elicits. The eclipse energies are emphasizing this. And usually the most successful communicators are those with the most flexibility, which ultimately controls the outcome. This is a time where you can finding new and more effective ways to get your message across. It's where you reprocess something or discover new information that changes your outlook. Or deliver a convincing debate that changes someone else's perspective. Look, listen and learn is the obvious takeaway. Communication, the key to learning, now defines your relationships.

Gemini or Gemini Rising weekly horoscope: Spike Milligan sarcastically wrote 'All I ask is but one chance to prove that money cannot buy happiness'. Funny, and also appropriate for you as the eclipse energies are pressing the 'reset' button on your life values. In an age of rampart materialism, it can be tempting to fall into the trap of judging your self-worth by your financial status, or comparison with others. Physical wealth comes and goes and there are enough bankrupt former millionaires to attest to that. However, your self-esteem does not have a price attached. It's asking for a rethink where finances and possessions are concerned. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies operating through your sign introduce a whole sense of personal 'renewal'. It is a powerful agent of 'initiation', especially for the mid-July born. With Pluto in the mix all Cancerians can be in a period of relationship regeneration or renewal as well, and for some that can stretch back to events stemming from around 2008. Perhaps life hasn't been the same since, whereas this eclipse coincides with fresh opportunity, perhaps a differing approach. A chance to rest the controls toward a more balanced equality. If something has been changed in a fundamental manner it can work. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies are a potent reminder that the drivers of our behaviour are often beyond our conscious awareness. That said, they can be uncovered, usually by what brings us undone. It's here where we find that holding onto ghosts of the past, is impeding the potential of the future. It's virtually like driving with the brakes on. Letting go may involve the wisdom of reflection and the courage of release. And also the knowledge that there are some things you cannot change but you can always change an attitude. The healing potential of this eclipse comes via unlocking that underworld Pluto. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Virgo or Virgo Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies are correlating with the people that you deal with, who share common goals. Throughout life they will change and evolve over time. When they do we move onto other groups, move into new working collectives or cultivate new associations and make new friends. It is redefining the old axiom that you're often judged by the company you keep. You can be realigning within the group dynamic. As the eclipse unfolds it illuminates the changes to your hopes and wishes and reflects upon your friendships and group associations. So this is where you may find you're able to create change or find it occurring naturally across the next year.

Libra or Libra Rising weekly horoscope: When eclipses occur atop your solar chart they ultimately impact on status and in particular, how you handle responsibilities. This is your command center, where you wield control and how you handle and deal with authority and authorities. In the larger scheme of things the presence of a Pluto opposition, during the eclipse time, adds another dimension. It can bring factor family into the equation, even proverbial skeletons in the closet or security issues over old wounds. But keep in mind that they can also be the springboard for higher achievement, or further facilitate a future status change.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies are opening new avenues for you. They're easy to recognise for they involve you exploring hitherto unknown territories. There's an encouragement to test yourself out by doing something unfamiliar - yet also immensely inviting. Self improvement and personal growth are the positive by-products of any new ventures. And you may naturally feel that 'now is the time' to extend yourself. In the physical sense travel may be on the agenda, or on the mental level developing a natural talent or taking on a course that develops an innate potential. New cultural connections or people at a distance can play a role in this. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies are akin to taking a dare on something. They highlight your house of taboo. It can be a little like the young bird leaving the nest in search of self-actualisation. It's like making a decision to go all the way on something, which also necessitates risk, or may involve conquering fear. Often we experience this when full commitment or total absolution is required. There is a certain sense of 'feeling in the dark' along the way. It's virtually a test of faith. A challenge of cutting the cord of old support systems in the hope of discovering, or inventing, new ones. The leap of faith always trumps the indecision of doubt. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details.  Top

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising weekly horoscope: Other people are seeing you differently now. They have to because you've changed and they have too. And you can both be noticing that during this eclipse time. That's where game changing Pluto comes into the picture, especially for Capricorn as it's in your sign - and very powerful for the mid January born. The lesson of Pluto is that it will usually pull the rug from under your feet, unless you're in control. So if underfoot has seemed a little slippery of late, it's because you've been handing the reins off to others. Time to treat those relationships in a different way. Co-operation is essential - but don't be like Elvis and Colonel Tom. Managing yourself is at the heart of this. New, or recent, contacts hold importance for the future. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising weekly horoscope: The first thing to recognise around this eclipse time is not to take anything for granted. Meaning that preparation is essential. It's not a time when you can trust in winging it and hoping for the best. Nor thinking that others aren't judging you if you haven't done your homework. On the plus side it offers the chance to perfect something through careful practice and repetition. To understand that the very best ad-libbers have secretly rehearsed it all, well ahead of time. The proof is in the planning. You can make real progress here by reducing the big things into smaller and manageable operations. To discuss your own future prospects astrologically for 2018, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising weekly horoscope: The eclipse energies are a valuable reminder that often your own answers provide better solutions than what passes for conventional wisdom. It's an abject lesson that true creativity is living life in the moment. It hasn't happened before. This is about trusting your instinct and ideally following your heart. It can be great for the true romantic and for some can even involve true romance. Occurring in the traditional house of children, the metaphorical message of giving birth to something new can hardly be clearer. The 'go with the flow' feel of the eclipse time can also indicate that something is about to give, especially if previously restrained or held back on.
