The 10/19 Lunar eclipse in astrology

The lunar eclipse was at 00:51 AM GMD on October 19 at 25:52 Aries. It was visible in Brazil, all of Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and much of Russia.

A lunar eclipse in the third decanate of Aries is said to cause abortive births and to pose dangers to women. Lands ruled entirely or in part by Aries, in which the eclipse was visible and will register more strongly, include Denmark, England, Wales, France, Germany, Iceland, Israel, Lebanon, Palestine, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Syria. The force of a lunar eclipse lasts three months on average.

The eclipsed Moon is in the second lunar mansion, called Albothaim. It gives courage, but also recklessness caused by lack of reflection, and can destabilize financial dealings.

For those of you whose birthday falls on this day it signals a turning point in your life. If the eclipse is visible where you are it is all the more powerful, and says that the next three months are going to be most eventful and challenging.

The most important planetary aspects at the eclipse include Mars exactly opposite Neptune, and Uranus exactly square Pluto. Mars and Neptune are at 2 degrees Virgo and Pisces, respectively. Uranus and Pluto are at 9 degrees Aries and Capricorn respectively. These two planetary configurations, because they occur at the time of the eclipse, will play out violently in the world from the time of the eclipse to the end of this year. Mars opposite Neptune is explosive.

The eclipse in the UK occurs at the zenith. There will be loud public outcry against the Government. Mars and Neptune are conjunct the 2nd and 8th house cusps respectively showing the financial crisis becoming explosive. Uranus and Pluto are in the 9th and 5th houses respectively showing trouble in international trade and diplomatic relations.

The eclipse in Bruxelles, therefore for the entire Euro zone occurs in the 9th house showing trouble in international trade relations. Mars and Neptune are in the 1st and 7th houses, respectively showing treachery and double dealing in international relations, and a violently angry spirit among the people; there will be rioting. Uranus and Pluto are in the 9th and 5th houses, respectively showing trouble in international trade and diplomatic relations.

The eclipse in the US is in the 12th house showing a crisis in services. Mars and Neptune are in the 4th and 10th houses, respectively showing treacherous dealings and violent fighting between the incumbency and the opposition in the Government. Uranus and Pluto are in the 11th and 8th houses, respectively showing violent disputes in the Congress having to do with the national debt.
Mars in the 4th house opposite Neptune in the 10th house shows that the people are being lied to, and are becoming very angry with the Government. The Ascendant in DC at the eclipse is conjunct the Pleiades, also known as the Weeping Sisters. As shown by this eclipse, the national outlook is seriously troubled.
