The solar eclipse of Sept. 1, 2016 in astrology


The solar eclipse of Sept. 1 comes at 10:19 AM GMD. It is at 9 degrees Virgo, forming a tight T-square with Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius, and Neptune in Pisces.

A solar eclipse in the first decanate of Virgo is read as causing great calamity, and death of some head of state, or king. Countries and regions of interest, ruled by Virgo, include Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Kurdestan; also Switzerland, the West Indies, Crete, Croatia, Greece, and Brazil. Cities under Virgo include Jerusalem, Paris, Lyons, Toulouse, Strasburg, Boston, and Los Angeles.
The eclipse is visible through central Africa. It spells calamitous conditions for that region.

The affects coming from the eclipse last at least one year. Transits to the eclipse degree will trigger repercussions. The eclipse is at 9 degrees Virgo. Neptune is at 10 degrees Pisces (opposite the eclipse). Neptune currently retrograde, arrives at 9 degrees Pisces exactly opposite the eclipse on September 27, turns direct at 9 degrees Pisces on November 20, and goes back to 10 degrees Pisces on January 11. This means that the general condition in the world between later September and mid-January is going to be more chaotic than it is now, and that we will see what is meant by calamity and death of heads of state. Other transits to the eclipse degree will happen. For instance, Mars will oppose the eclipse degree on December 31 and January 1, warning us of violence around New Years Eve. Mars also moves to square the eclipse on May 4 and 5. Also lunar transits to the eclipse degree will cause repercussions, the first coming on September 15 when the Moon is opposite the eclipse.

Current news about the difficulties that the Deutsche Bank is also shown in the eclipse. The original birth chart of Deutsch Bank, first founded as an international commerce bank on January 22, 1870 in Berlin, has Venus 10:27 in Pisces in the 1st house; Neptune 16:57 in the 1st house; Jupiter 11:29 Taurus in the 2nd house, and Pluto, ruler of the 9th house of internation trade in the 2nd house conjunct Jupiter. Deutche Bank is extremaly rich and powerful, but, at this point is in considerable hot water. The important planet to note here is Venus. The bank's natal Venus is at 10:27 Pisces. We see transiting Neptune now at 10:40 Pisces retrograde. Venus, in the original chart, rules the 8th house of debts, credit and derivatives. Neptune shows a bubble in credit and derivative, and fradulent manipulation. Neptune currently retrograde promisses more woes to come to Deutche Bank through this year and well into 2017. The eclipse is almost exactly opposite Neptune conjunct the bank's natal Venus, showing how much danger it is in. This is exacerbated by the square aspect to Saturn and Mars. In the eclipse chart for Berlin Mars and Saturn are in the 2nd house showing an extremely dangerous financial condition.  It threatens Germany. If this is not strictly controlled by the German government it will cause an economic crisis not only in Germany, but in all of Europe and so on. It is interesting to note: Deutsche Bank's natal Saturn is at 24:19 Sagittarius. Saturn will be at 24 degrees Sagittarius in early February, 2017. This means that the bank is coming to a Saturn return in early February, 2017, and will be involved in a process of reorganization with probable streamlining, meaning losses of jobs.
The eclipse happens at the zenith of Berlin. Neptune is in the 4th house, and Mars and Saturn are in the 2nd house. This shows growing chaos in Germany, not to mention Europe. There is increasing opposition to the current government that will ultimately fall from power.

The eclipse in Bruxelles is in the 11th house in a stellium. Sun, Moon, north node, Jupiter, and Mercury are in the 11th house in Virgo, and Venus is in the 11th house in Libra: there are 5 planets with the north node in the 11th house. The 11th house signifies the parliament. There is trouble in the entire parliamentary governance of the EU as shown by this eclipse. The eclipse is opposite Neptune in the 5th house and square Saturn and Mars in the 2nd house. A major issue lies diplomatic relations connected to economic woes. This has something to do with ties to the UK. The European stock markets are also in danger of falling.

The eclipse in Ankara, Turkey, Turkey being ruled by Virgo, is in the 10th house. Mars and Saturn are in the 1st house. This is very bad for the government except that Jupiter is also in the 10th house, and gives protection. It, nonetheless, spells war.

The eclipse in Moscow is in the 10th house along with north node, Jupiter, Mercury, and Venus. And Saturn and Mars are in the 1st house. There is a tremendous activity in the top levels of the government, and the outlook is warlike. Because the eclipse is at the zenith at these longitudes of the world, we can expect the violence there to intensify. Russia will be all the more directly involved in the conflict in Syria, as will Turkey. The situation for Assad is extremely dangerous. The war in Syria will get worse. Assad is in serious danger.

The eclipse in London is similar to Bruxelles. It shows danger for the banks and stock market, and difficulties in diplomatic relations connected to Parliament. The eclipse opposite Neptune spells a split with EU, but with lingering questions unresolved.

The eclipse in Washington DC is in the 1st house opposite Neptune in the 7th and square Saturn and Mars in the 4th, showing general unrest, ill health, and discontentment among the people. In the 2nd house, however, we find Jupiter conjunct Mercury in Virgo, and conjunct Venus in Libra. This shows good and improving economic conditions.

The outlook for the DNC as seen astrologically


A horary astrological chart was drawn up, July 24th at 11:47 in NYC, with the question what the future outlook is like, considering the turn of events. Here is what it says.
Moon is at 1:53 Aries in the 6th house, showing, right off that the matter will take time to sort out. It will not be easy.
The Moon is besieged between Neptune and Uranus. Directly behind the Moon is Neptune and in front of the Moon is Uranus. One bad turn leads to another. The entire thing is troubled.
Neptune behind the Moon shows what led up to the current state of affairs, and it is fraudulence and lying.

The Moon's aspects in order of transit are:
1. trine Sun in the 10th house,
2. trine Saturn retrograde in the 2nd house,
3. sextile Part of Fortune in the 9th house exactly square the lunar node in the 11th house.
4. square Pluto in the 4th house,
5. trine Venus in the 10th house.
6. parallel Jupiter in the 12th house,
7. trine Mercury in the 11th house,
8. conjunction Uranus in the 7th house.
These 8 aspects show some shilly shallying that will delay any real resolution. It confirms the Moon's 6th house placement, saying that the matter is not going to get resolved anytime soon.

The aspects viewed separately are as follows.
1. The trine Sun in Leo in the 10th house shows how powerful the DNC is. It also shows powerful people supporting them. These include the President, and the top executives of corporate and financial circles. Moon rules the 10th house. It involves the President and the people behind him. They will do everything to save face.
2. The Moon trine Saturn retrograde in the 2nd house, no matter how you slice it, shows serious trouble coming up, and it will cost the party heavily. Saturn rules the 4th house, undermining the power of the DNC. The Wikileaks dealt a severe blow to them. Moon trine Saturn also shows a long time holding on. But, Saturn in the 2nd house, and ruling the 4th house, shows the end of the matter with the party seriously damaged.
3. The Moon sextile the Part of Fortune in the 9th house shows favors from judges. However, the Part of Fortune applying by minutes in the same degree to exact square the lunar node in the 11th house shows serious trouble nonetheless. The node in the 11th house signifies the Congress. Fortuna or any planet in the same exact degree as the lunar node, and applying by minutes to exactitude, warns of disruption about to come. The convention will be disruptive.
4. Moon square Pluto retrograde in the 4th house is another disruptive sign. The 4th house is the end of the matter. The DNC is damaged. Pluto rules the 2nd house, and is in mutual reception with Saturn by house rulership, Saturn ruling the 4th house. This means that however they may try to get out of the problem they get in deeper. The mutual reception puts retrograde Pluto in the 2nd house showing that it will cost them heavily willy nilly. The Mutual reception also puts Saturn in the 3rd house showing that they will try to suppress news, as usual. Their media will not report everything in an attempt to protect them, but will try to hide their dirty laundry by misdirecting the public attention, casting blame and aspersion at their rivals, the GOP, and, as it turns out, Russia !
5. Moon trine Venus in the 10th house shows the support of powerful women in top circles as well as from the general populace, as Venus rules the 1st house.
6. Moon parallel Jupiter in the 12th house is protective and softens the blow.
7. Moon trine Mercury in the 11th house shows support from sharp, clever people in the Congress, giving it all legal spin and brilliant trickery. Mercury rules the 9th house of law.
8. Moon conjunct Uranus in the 7th house. The matter does not end well. Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries is afflicted.

The chart seen from the 2nd house. The 2nd house is the house of what's coming up, or the future. In this chart we have Mars and Saturn retrograde in the 2nd house. This simply means trouble coming up. The 2nd house also shows the cost. Mars and Saturn show it will cost severely. Saturn retrograde says extremely heavily. This is extremely unfortunate.

The chart seen from the 4th house. The 4th house is the end of the matter. Pluto retrograde there is destructive. Its mutual reception with Saturn shows that attempts to get around the matter only get them more deeply entrenched.

From this point until the Democratic party is radically reformed, as shown by the Moon's conjunction with Uranus, they are seriously damaged. And that reform will not be more democratic.

The Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, wrote, "Justice will catch up with those who invent lies and those who swear to them."

Astrological prediction on the Hague ruling on the South China Sea


A horary chart was cast on July 12 at 10:08 PM in NYC on the question what the Hague ruling would come to. The South China Sea arbitral tribunal in The Hague delivered a one-sided ruling in the case initiated by the Philippines. It is my opinion that there are a few reasons for attempting to do away with China's legitimate territorial claims. First and most obvious is the oil in the South China Sea. If the area is claimed by the Philippines, a willing puppet of the western powers behind this developing conflict, the multi-national oil companies located in the west will get to take the oil. Secondly, China is not included in the TPP negotiations. This has far reaching implications, especially if the TPP goes through. You can connect the dots.

The horary chart shows the following. The ASC signifies China and the DSC signifies the west. The ASC is ruled by Uranus, and the DSC is ruled by the Sun. The question came up if the situation would lead to a war. For that to happen the rulers of the ASC and DSC would have to be in afflictive aspect, either by opposition or square, and in the angles (the 1st, 10th, 7th, and 4th houses). Here we see the Sun coming to square Uranus confirming that conflict is developing, but the square is happening between the 2nd and 5th houses. It means economic conflict is coming.
The 2nd house is also the house of what's coming up. We see Uranus in the 2nd house. China is concerned about her territories, holdings, and wealth. The Sun coming to Square Uranus shows the west moving to challenge it. The ruler of the 2nd house is Mars. Mars is in the 9th house, in Scorpio. The 9th house has to do with foreign trade. We also see the Moon in Scorpio, the sign of her fall, applying to conjunction with Mars. The Moon's final aspect in this chart is that conjunction. It is a bad sign. It says there may very well be conflict, and, if so, it will affect trade relations and financial agreements. There is a way out. The Moon is in mutual reception with Venus by house placement. It shows diplomacy.

Theresa May: Chinese astrological portrait


Theresa May was born on October 1, 1956 at 10:55 AM. (The astrological time of her birth was rectified by Theodore White).
The Chinese signs of the year, month, day, and hour of Teresa May's birth are  Fire Monkey, Fire Rooster, Metal Ox, and Water Snake, respectively.
She was born in the 8th lunar month on a day designated as fair and stable. This characterizes what she wants: to be fair, just, and to keep things stable. This is her essential motivation.
The chart has 7 Metal, 3 Water, 0 Wood, 3 Fire, and 3 Earth. There is an extreme imbalance in the chart between Metal and Wood. She can have quite a delemma taking sides. When Wood comes up in progressions she has difficult challenges. This imbalance of Metal and Wood can cause her to change sides expediently to adjust to, or take advantage of wherever it is she feels power, or to get around difficult conditions. The chart shows that she can be unstable, taking one side or another. She's a good negotiator. But this quality can also bring her career into turmoil.
Predominant Metal makes her shrewd, cutting edge, sharp, and skillful. No Wood brings up big challenges for her in years and cycles that bring up Wood. Such cycles show up for her between her ages 18 to 38, and then between 58 to 78. As you can see, she, at age 60, is currently in a Wood cycle. She needs to exert command, and she will get stiff opposition from several sides.
Theresa May's ruling element is Metal. She was born on a day of Metal in Metal Season, and Metal overwhelms her entire chart. Her vital element is Water. Water would have signified children if she were able to have them, but, because, as her chart shows, she wasn't able, it signifies her career. Her career is of vital importance to her life.
May's chart deity is called Amiable. This defines her career. While she is generally friendly, she is very independent. She will shift alliances according to what is expedient. She acts independently, and her moves can surprise others.  Her birth Star is 7 Metal. This makes her a shrewd judge of character. She is a subtle, sociable, and cool character. She is able to weigh the different sides with equanimity. She is highly sensitive, questioning, and resourceful. It takes her a long time to make up her mind, and she does not trust easily. Her decisions and insights can take others by surprise. She is very happy in her work, and thrives among those who work enthusiastically along with her. Where others are unsupportive, she will tend to lose interest. She succeeds by shrewd planning and perserverance. She has excellent social skills and is appreciated especially in her professional circle.
She has strong self-discipline, is clever, and is an able leader. She shines in Government. She has good foresight. Her chart, nonetheless shows that her career may tend to be unstable and tumultuous.
There is a Knife Blade in her chart. It shows that she can be unbending, obstinate, and resentful of others' opinions, and that she can be a risk taker.
May's progressed chart shows her from her age 58 to 68 to be in a Metal Rabbit cycle, and from 68 to 78 in a Metal Tiger cycle. Both of these show her forced to stand up and assume the position of power. Metal Rabbit (58 - 68) completely revolutionizes her career. This year, 2016, the year of Fire Monkey, is a pinnacle year for her. Metal Rabbit, the sign for her cycle, 58 - 68, galvanizes her personally. Metal is her birth element. She is very strong. Rabbit, however, a Wood sign, promises to make this a challenging period. It will test her mettle. She's got opposition to contend with. Her Administration will not be uneventful. She, however, is tough, commanding, and shrewd. She can even be cold and ruthless.
2016 is a pinnacle year for May. She is strong. Her vital element is abundant this year. It is very fortunate for her career.
2017 looks like a dramatic year for her career. It is the year of Fire Rooster. May was born in the month of Fire Rooster. Rooster fights with Rooster. She will have much to contend with. Her vitality is strong in 2017; she will take a dominant position and will shine out; she will show strong discipline and cleverness; and will be able to get a good following, which is needed. She has a huge job in reforming and unifying the diverging trends in the Government. 2017 looks like a make or break year. The 10 year cycle she is in, from 58 - 68, Metal Rabbit, being opposite the sign of her career at birth, Fire Rooster, is transformative for her career, and could possibly break it. The sign of 2017, Fire Rooster, is the same as the sign of her career at birth chart: Fire Rooster. 2017 appears to be critical. It brings her career into a crisis make or break point. She has a lot going for her, however, therefore a good chance of succeeding. Her birth star, 7 Metal, is also in the house of 2 Earth, showing every step she takes making it better and better, while every step could be hard. 7 Metal in a year of Rooster is in a good place and has protection.
Looking beyond 2017, 2020 is a pivotal year in May's life.

The New Moon in Cancer: an astrological report


The New Moon came on July 4th at 12:02 PM GMD. The Moon formed a stellium in Cancer with Mercury, the Sun, and Venus, straddling all three decanates of that sign. The new Moon was in the 2nd decanate, resonating with Scorpio. Mars was in Scorpio trine Venus, and sesquisquare Mercury, showing hopes of some understanding amid conflict.
The New Moon forms a trine aspect with Neptune in Pisces, suggesting that this may become a good period for the arts in general.
That Mercury, the Moon, the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Neptune are all in Water signs, our attention is drawn to water, the ocean tides, rain, and floods. The New Moon in the UK and in the EU is at the zenith, suggesting wet, stormy weather.
While the New Moon forms a trine with Neptune, and a sextile with Jupiter, both bringing more expansive and placid conditions into the world for the time being, it was in opposition with Pluto, and there was a T Square between Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces, and Jupiter in Virgo, showing a continuing pattern of disagreement and arguing. The Mercury sesquisquare Mars aspect intensifies that condition. We also have Mars Quincunx Uranus, encouraging underground, secret activity of a potentially dangerous sort. A lot is going on that escapes notice.

The New Moon in the UK occured in the 10th house. It, along with Mercury and Venus, was intercepted, showing new developments in the Government hehind closed doors. The opposition to Pluto in the 4th house shows the breakings up of the Government status quo. The trine to Neptune in the 6th house, activating the T Square with Saturn in the 3rd, and Jupiter in the 12th, point to the problems in the Labor Party. It is unlikely that they will be resolved too readily, as Neptune is tightly square Saturn through the summer and into the fall. At any rate, the New Moon in the 10th house in Britain shows change in the Government.

The New Moon opposite Pluto in Bruxelles also shows changes in the Government. But, whereas Mars, in the UK chart is in the 3rd house, showing discontentment and arguments (protests), Mars, in the EU chart is in the 2nd house showing financial losses. A proposed EU army would seriously affect the economic condition of the member states if it came about. The New Moon chart for Bruxelles also has Uranus in the 7th house, showing the break with the UK, and producing other awkward and unanticipated complications in foreign relations, as well as internal agitation and hints of more breakups to come.

The New Moon in the US was in the 12th house along with Mercury and Venus, and was opposite Pluto in the 6th house. This shows underground criminal activity about to increase. The New Moon casts rays to the 6th, 5th, 3rd, and 9th houses. If there is danger, places to watch include military installations; the streets; places of transportation like train stations, trains, airports, airplanes, and boats; and places of amusement such as theaters and sports arenas.
The New Moon in the 12th house points to a rise in secret intelligence activity involving spies and secret enemy agents.

Summer solstice, 2016, in astrology


Summer solstice came at 11:35 PM GMD on June 20, following the full moon at 12:03 PM GMD. It is a full moon solstice, meaning a general turning point for the world. The full moon was at 29:33 Sagittarius, showing us all at the end of our tether in one way or another at this point. The solstice, at 00:00 Cancer, is opposite the solstice point of the full moon, so the full moon registers very strongly in this solstice, marking a turning point in world events.

The full moon followed the new moon in Gemini of June 5. That new moon was in a grand cross in mutable signs, showing a complicated picture with a lot of conflict, arguing and fighting. Those conditions carry over to the full moon and the solstice.

The solstice has a grand cross in mutable signs also. This one involves Saturn, Neptune, Mercury, and Jupiter.

In the chart made for the UK, we find Saturn retrograde in the 10th house conjunct the Midheaven. This is evil. It denotes disgrace, misfortune, and many troubles for prominent figures in the current Government. It bodes ill for the Prime Minister. He's finished.
Saturn is in Sagittarius. His dispositer, Jupiter is in Virgo in the 7th house and square Saturn. This brings Saturn, and who he represents in the Government, to probable defeat. Jupiter afflicted in the 7th house also causes disputes with other powers over financial and trade issues.
Jupiter's dispositor, Mercury is opposite Saturn. Mercury is in Gemini, a strong position. Mercury is in the 4th house, opposing the current Government, and exacerbating disputes with other powers, as Mercury is square Jupiter. Mercury in the 4th house opposite Saturn in the 10th and square Jupiter in the 7th shows discontentment of the people. It is also showing storms adversely affecting agriculture.
Neptune is in Pisces the 1st house, retrograde, square Saturn, opposite Jupiter, and square Mercury. In the 1st house, Neptune shows discontentment among the people, and occasions agitation, and treacherous behavior. It brings fraud. Neptune is intercepted in the 1st house. The ruler of the 1st house is Uranus. Uranus is in the 2nd house, showing where this treachery focuses. It is in finances, banks, and the stock market. There is financial trickery registering in this whole matter of Brexit.

Because Bruxelles is so close to London, all these indications for UK are being reflected in the EU. There is trickery in the entire banking system between Britain and the EU, and the leadership in Britain as well as in the EU is threatened at this point.

The Solstice Sun is in the 5th house, opposite the Moon and conjuct Venus. Venus is opposite the Moon. This focuses in the area of diplomatic relations. Venus, combust and opposite Moon is extremely weak and afflicted. Venus rules the 8th house. There are financial losses, and big debts, and, let's say, diplomatic relations at this point in the EU are a mess. If Britain remains in the EU, it won't solve it. The Cameron Administration is weak, and in seriuos danger of defeat. The current situation in the EU is also weak and in serious danger of coming undone with or without the UK.

The matter of Brexit looks a fairly close vote, with Leave more likely to win over Remain.

In the chart made for the US, Saturn is in the 1st house opposite Mercury in the 7th, square Neptune in the 3rd and Jupiter in the 9th. The solstice Sun is in the 7th with Venus opposite Moon in the 1st.
Saturn afflicted in the 1st house is evil. People are out of work, ill, distressed, and angry. We see Mars in the 12th house quincunx Uranus in the 5th. Danger from criminal fanatics found in places of entertainment and sports events continues.
The opposition of Jupiter and Neptune is between the 9th and 3rd houses. A lot of misinformation and lies are deliberately being circulated to generate confusion in politics and news.
The solstice Sun in the 7th house speaks of international affairs. They are not going smoothly. The ruler of the 7th house, Mercury is opposite Saturn, and square Jupiter and Neptune. A lot of trickery and lying is going on. The ruler of the 2nd house shows what is coming up. Saturn rules the 2nd house. Saturn is afflicted in the 1st house. The people are seriously troubled about the future. The 10th house, hinting of what's coming in the elections, is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is in a grand cross, opposite Saturn and square Jupiter and Neptune. We can expect a tremendous lot of treachery and deception corrupting the political picture and confusing the process. The people are angry and worried. The ruler of the Government, Mercury is square to the Ruler of the People, Jupiter. They are at odds, and the people are being lied to, tricked, and manipulated.
