Total Solar Eclipse of the heart

August 21st @ 11:30 am PDT/ 2:30 pm EDT/ 6:30 pm GMT.

Everyone in America is talking about ‘The Great American Eclipse” as it will be the first one in 99 years to be totally visible right across the U.S. The Eclipse will bisect the U.S. crossing  11 US states; Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

The Path of Totality is where the eclipse effects are strongest in those places. The divide which we are already seeing between Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. will only get stronger.

This is a North Nodal Dragon’s Head eclipse directing us to our highest spiritual goal which is LEO to sovereignty as individuals. To living from the heart for self-expression creativity and being like the Golden Child.  Eclipses always repeat at the same degrees approximately every 18 years 11 days 8 hours.

This eclipse is catalogued by NASA as Saros cycle 145. It began Jan 4, 1639,  and ends with the 77th eclipse on April 17 3009.  This Eclipse is the 22nd in the cycle; a Master number. The last Saros Total Solar eclipse was on August 11, 1999. Think back to what you were doing then? Where were your passion drive and bliss? It may be very important to bring closure to anything that feels unfinished before this next eclipse cycle.

Eclipses have always been held in fear and awe and were considered harbingers of the “deaths of Kings and leader” and major indictions of change. Now we know that as the electromagnetic energy of the earth changes and fluctuates during an eclipse we receive downloads and initiations of new radiant energy from the sun. We are enlightened in the dark. 

ECLIPSE ASPECTS

The 29th degree is always considered to be the most critical. With Sun Moon Mars North Node; Saturn Uranus and ERIS in FIRE SIGNS this is definitely a Total Eclipse of the Heart plus.

THE TAROT CARDS of the Eclipse are STRENGTH/LEO # 8 and the SUN #19

Yes, the eclipse falls directly on Trumps’ MARS in his 12th house of his own shadow self-undoing and secret enemies. Also on his Royal Leo Ascendant persona. Many astrologers have predicted downfall impeachment and I predict a heart attack. The effects of an eclipse last up to 9 months so it may not happen exactly on the 21st. 

MARS conjunct the NORTH NODE of the MOON and SUN.

This is a rip-roaring angry crowd energy. Each person thinks they are the Kings or Queens of the world. The energy is extremely passionate. Street fighting man. MUCHO drama. Leo’s love the drama. Go to AQUARIUS energy for balance. Stay as cool and detached eating popcorn and watching the movie. But where justice needs to be protected stand up and say it loud. 

The GRAND FIRE TRINE of SUN MOON NORTH NODE and MARS trines SATURN in SAGITTARIUS and the GALACTIC CENTER and URANUS in ARIES

Cue the revolution the cosmic downloads and those who would repeat history.

The SUN MOON etc in LEO gang sextile JUPITER in LIBRA at 20 degrees and create a wide FINGER OF GOD to CHIRON in PISCES. There are great healing potentials and a shitload of karmic baggage surfacing now. You must go right through those wounds to heal them. Compassion faith and GRACE are gifts to receive.

PLUT0 opposes CERES in CANCER squaring JUPITER

This Cardinal T- Square between the Unconscious; the Soul; the shadow; power secrets garbage and nuclear energy symbolized by Pluto. CERES is opposite the PSYCHOPOMP in CANCER where She is very much the Mother Goddess of the earth and waters signifying that we must bring our souls to restore the earth’s resources; the earth the waters and all the children. The Plutocracy is attempting to control everything. They own virtually everything on the earth. We must oppose that Plutocracy by aligning with our mother the earth. Women must also take back their powers as life bringers and nourisher’s and protect our resources. Honor the Goddess and legislate { Jupiter} for equality for women and those who love the land.

OMEGA/Chandra Symbols for 29 LEO by John Sandbach

“A tiny, poisonous frog with a brightly colored body. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Responsible

Degree Angel: MAHASIAH (mah-HA-see-YAH) Healing, Rectification

You have a powerful ability to maintain your own integrity even in the midst of tremendous pressure exerted from outside to be something different, something that fits into the narrow-minded prejudices and biases of other people. Your being calls to and awakens the true self of others, inviting them to become more and more their greater selves. This all happens in unpredictable ways and through the genius of your ever changing inspiration.

Chandra Symbol

 “A broken sword.” The broken sword seems harmless, and does the poisonous frog, but our instincts tell us the color of it spells potential danger, just as the sword can be reforged and become a weapon as it did in the “Lord of the Rings” and Wagner’s “Ring Cycle.” All poisons are also medicines, all weapons are also potential vehicles of healing. Personality in this degree must break down and reform continually to allow in greater and greater amounts of light.

Pleidian Symbol: A mermaid showing sailor’s to an enchanted island.

Omega Symbol: Sensing the hidden treasures within us which are accessible but guarded by our own feminine wisdom, we instinctively do whatever it takes to ward off all that would try to separate us from our true self.”

MERCURY the planet is personified as THE MAGICIAN Tarot Trump # 1

Magician Thoth Tara Tarot  reader

THOTH TAROT # 1 the MAGUS Mercury 

The magical skill we all have is our minds. With our consciousness, we can create whatever we wish to. Yes you are a wizard or a witch. We all are. You are what you think. The Magician usually has an  INFINITY symbol over his head. As does the woman in the STRENGTH card which is LEO energy.  With Magic you can  control ALL TIME.  The mind is INFINITE. Mercury is a hermaphrodite, both masculine and feminine. He symbolizes the two-lobed brain, the conscious and unconscious sides of ourselves. Each person contains both sexes. Inter-gender is a popular term these days.  The MAGICIAN is a trickster.

The Sign of Virgo the Virgin earth is personified as THE HERMIT #9 

Hermit Virgo astrology Tara Greene

Guilded Tarot Hermit

THE HERMIT is not necessarily alone or has abandoned all worldly possessions. The Hermit is usually pictured as a wise old man with a long beard in profile holding up a lamp, a light to guide the way. He is very much the Inner GUIDE, the one who is always there within you. Just quiet that busy mind and you will find the Hermit, as your ancestors, an unbroken lineage working for and protecting you. 

Use this time with Mercury in VIRGO to tune into that ancient wisdom of the Hermit.

THE SUN will enter Virgo August 22.

MEDITATIONS  WITH THE MAGICIAN Mercury

Dialogue with the HERMIT within as a daily meditation. Ask him questions, he is waiting to guide you. The Hermit can be a female guide as well, the Virgin Goddess, the keeper of the harvest.

Why am I so afraid of being alone? Very important for women to ask this question.

Talk to your body, ask each part how it is feeling, You will be amazed at how correct this is.
