2011 brings us 4 Solar and 2 Lunar Eclipses


Image shown: at the White House, Solar Eclipse January 4, 2011 @ 13Cap38 in 2nd house of Values and Earning Ability; eclipse opposes US natal *Sun in Cancer, here with other US planets in Cancer, in 8th house of Big Finance and Transformation; Hour of the Moon (changes; daily life; publicity); no planetary patterns and no out-of-bounds planets; out-going and practical Cardinal-Earth is strong; '13Can/Cap' are critical/crisis degrees; Mc 10Vir45 'lifts up' Fixed Star Zosma (victim or savior) and is Bush Sr's natal Ascendant degree.

Venus 26Sco51, planet of valuations and relationships, rises with asteroids Lilith and Panacea; chart-ruler Mars 20Cap59, a critical degree, makes only one applying aspect: a conjunction to the eclipse (7A21) so we have:

Sun/Moon = Mars: desire to bring ideas and plans to fruition; a realization of joint ventures.

Here are a few details on the Sun Cap-Moon Cap blend.

Co-ruler Pluto only makes an applying trine to Mc; Lord of the Eclipse, Saturn 16Lib48 in 11th house, applies to a square with the eclipse (3A09); Saturn is in the midst of a three-fer US Saturn Return 14Lib48 (which is squared by this eclipse.)

This planetary situation creates an emphasis on America's natal Sun/Saturn square which forms a 'Fist of God' pattern with US natal Moon 27AQ10 at apex.

Our natal Sun/Saturn = Moon: attention to daily activities; emotional or organic depression; feeling inferior or inhibited; bereavement; fear.

Substitute our natal Moon (we-the-people) in the above midpoint equation with the Jan 2011 eclipse's Neptune 26AQ50 and we have...

n Sun/Saturn = Jan 2011 Neptune: a mental, emotional, or physical crisis; inhibitions; inner peculiarities; a relaxation of plans that are thought to be too rigid ('austerity' or 'entitlement cuts'? jc); delusion within relationships; loneliness.

Also, Pluto trine Mc provides the chart with Pluto sextile Ic, an aspect which describes those who wish to control others and make all decisions, secretiveness and quarrels, and sleuthing into other people's business. Investigators, librarians, historians, police and military forces, secret agencies at home (Ic), and archaeologists are particularly hightlighted. (The Sextile, Alan Epstein.)

You may notice that the HOW? Point of the chart (Ic) is @ '11Pis' = "Men Seeking Illumination", a symbol which outs the much-disputed Illuminati presence in America.

The wounding, confusing, watery transits of Neptune and Chiron to US natal Moon continue to plague us with fraud, dissolution, homelessness and foreclosures; tr Pluto, the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, opposes US natal Jupiter, a period when US financial matters and professional status are not favored; measures taken during this time will not be sufficient though we may not actually know just who stands in our way due to devouring Pluto's invisible cloak and subversive, sabotaging actions.

However, nothing that is truly ours will be destroyed during the Pluto opposite n Jupiter transit - yet this does not include fortunes that exist only on paper or on a computer screen.

Political aspirations are better put on-hold for a while since they likely will be challenged by more powerful forces as the US is locked in a major struggle for control of Jupiterian issues relating to money, the military, religion, higher education, expansion, growth, exploration, and...did I say, money?

Plus, the Sabian Symbol for '28Gem' (the 8th house cusp) is 'Bankruptcy'; Gemini is a sign of duality indicating multiplicity and potential duplicity concerning 8th house matters such as debt, credit, insurance, banking, and such.

Now as you know, the off-on transit of the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Uranus 27Pis01/02 show the pair to be quite exact (partile) in 4th house of Domestic Scene and Homeland in the eclipse chart set for DC; Jupiter/Uranus is the far-traveling 'lucky break' duo that, in politics and business, indicate such themes as:

reform originating in religious principles; applying legal methods against breakdowns in order, strikes, or revolutions; periods of reform are followed by growth; civil war or unrest due to a legal or religious system which stifles justice for the common people; labor-saving devices bring modernization (Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, Michael Munkasey.)

Yes, one of the more encompassing backgrounds of our societal atmosphere that I consider when composing Political Astrology posts are the Solar and Lunar Eclipses for any given year. Whether offering crises or opportunities, these wild card lunations of the universe have always fascinated the collective and may influence events and outcomes even when partial or seen from only certain vantage points upon the Earth; even when 'invisible', we know they're there.

Today I'm displaying only the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse but basic details for the other eclipses are here included; further eclipse chart images for 2011 will be published as my blogging schedule allows.

Here is NASA's website which gives paths of visibility for Solar Eclipses 2011 - 2020. Alternately, you may wish to check out Hermit.org.

The year 2011 contains 6 eclipses all together: 4 Solar and 2 Lunar.

Let's look at the 4 Solar Eclipses by Series themes and add a few details on the Lunar Eclipses as well since, as you know, 2011 is thought to herald difficult times and acts as chronological doorkeeper to the much-ballyhooed '2012' of Mayan Prophecy, legend, and New-Agery promise; the global power elite have played on collective fears well and see this era as implementation time for total control of the planet.

In order of manifestation, the Solar Eclipses of 2011 are noted; Sabian Symbols are from Dane Rudhyar's An Astrological Mandala and will be rounded up to the next degree for simplicity's sake when minutes are less than 30; eclipse details are primarily from Brady's Predictive Astrology and Celeste Teal's Eclipses though there's some melding of Series themes for the June 1 and July 1 Solar Eclipses; some of my own notes may be included; midpoint pictures are from Tyl, Ebertin, and Munkasey and any, all, or none may apply:

As pictured above (click chart to enlarge and read my scribbled notes; plus, US natal planets are notated in red, outer) 13 North: January 4, 2011 @ '14 Capricorn': "An Ancient Bas-Relief Carved in Granite Remains a Witness to a Long-Forgotten Culture"; 'Keynote: The will to unearth in our culture as well as in any culture, what has permanent value, and to let go of non essentials.

What is needed is a penetrating and courageous insight founded upon a valid HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE.' We must 'learn to appreciate the excellence of what is the immortal seed-foundation.'

(Is this a Monsanto-GM-seed reference? This degree opposes US natal Sun degree '14Can'; the Sun in Mundane Astrology = the leader or leadership. The actual eclipse occurs @ 13Cap38, a crisis or critical degree, and you don't need Astrology to tell you how the nation and world are mired in such just now; its link to US natal Sun indicates an administration crucially connected to world events; powerful opposition to the president's agenda brings turbulence and legislative delays, trade imbalances, strikes, and discontent. France is one of the countries embroiled against governmental "austerity cuts" and retirement age changes which enrage populations everywhere especially since the wealthiest classes seem to be making no sacrifice at all - and war expenditures are what should be 'cut'; Uranus and Pluto square off in Cardinal degrees for their usual unrest and rebellion; mid-1960s issues resurface from the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Pluto including racial relations.)

13N Series themes: groups and associations; large, ambitious group projects which require the breaking of an existing bond; separation, then joint achievement. Last occurred: 1992.

(The initial eclipse in this Series manifested on August 14, 1776 and I suspect it to be America's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series - 'PE' - as much as any other; all the signatures were not garnered onto the Declaration of Independence until early August 1776 and eclipses can affect us for up to two weeks prior or after their actual manifestation; this eclipse's chart for August 14, 1776 works well as a US natal chart, too. Check it out and let me know what you think of it as a symbolic natal chart for America - Neptune and Pluto are in virtually the same degrees as on July 4, 1776.)

Solar Eclipse, 13S: June 1 @ '11Gem02' (a 2-degree orb with US natal DESC in our Sibly chart): "Newly Opened Lands Offer the Pioneer New Opportunities for Experience"; 'Keynote: The power and joy of new beginnings. (Man) is facing the unknown. Anything can happen. ...Every step ahead should show him RISING TO THE OCCASION.'

13S themes: expansive energy but with a sinister flavor underneath; striving for positive or negative group endeavors; storms, dismissals, evacuations, and a potential for constitutional crisis. Last occurred: 1993, year of the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune, the illuminated pair who now assist one another by mutual reception.

The sign Gemini indicates communication, transportation, and trade issues; occurring in the 8th house in Washington DC, there may be a death or resignation of a public figure, and treaties and negotiations with foreign countries may be negatively impacted.

June 15, Lunar Eclipse @ '24Sag23': "A Blue Bird Perched on the Gate of a Cottage"; 'Keynote: The reward which meets every effort at integration into a social environment for those who remain true to their own selves'.

Blue bird = happiness but 'it also refers to what one might call a spiritually oriented mind. ...The essential technique for successful living is the development of a consciousness in which peace and happiness dwell. There is also a hint that GOOD FORTUNE is going to bless your life.'

Some improvement may be indicated in foreign relations which results in prosperity; crime, rehab, sanitation, and hospital issues are on the menu.

Solar Eclipse, July 1, 2011 (which Celeste Teal has labeled the "Democratic Spirit" eclipse) @ '9Can12' = '9Can' = "A Small Naked Girl Bends Over a Pond to Catch a Fish"; 'Keynote: The first naive quest for knowledge and for an ever-elusive understanding of life.

"Small naked girl" = 'the innocent and spontaneous mind, as yet unclothed in cultural patterns and unrestrained by don'ts, trying to satisfy its curiosity about what seems mysterious and fleeting. ...The key here is PURITY IN UNDERSTANDING.'

As you know, '9Can' falls amidst America's Venus, Jupiter, and Sun (3 to 14 Cancer) and is the midpoint degree of our nation's natal Sun/Venus and Sun/Jupiter combinations. Therefore...

In politics and business, Sun/Venus = using wealth available to a nation or business to sustain its image or authority; how a nation shapes the direction of its growth; the nature of reserves, resources, and the roles they play in national development; a leadership that doesn't appreciate the role that culture or art play in the development of national character; a society estranged from its leadership.

Sun/Jupiter = directness and forcefulness when facing challenges; a nation's reputation in the world; an ability to lead others; religious or philosophical systems which tie effective leadership of a nation to a predetermined course of action; a nation's executive branch battling with the legal and justice systems. (Midpoints, Munkasey.)

A Cancerian Solar Eclipse indicates crisis and/or opportunity in these areas.

However, the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse may come off as an insignificant solar eclipse for it is a tiny partial eclipse which will be visible from a small patch of ocean near Antarctica. And yet the potential for natural disasters cannot be ruled out with the influence of any eclipse, can they? And perhaps the universe is lengthening our lessons and indicating a longer period of time for teaching us.

The final Solar Eclipse of 2011 occurs on November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 in the difficult 14 North Series. Celeste Teal gives this one a "Blazing New Trails" label; Brady's Predictive Astrology describes the 14N Series as "most peculiar" and says it "heralds an acute time of confusion in personal relationships, unexpected happenings in financial matters, and possible illness."

This eclipse may bring unrequited love, despair and a draining of energy, confusion, and a weird turn of events (for you personally, lone reader, it all depends on which departments of life - 'houses' - an eclipse degree falls into and how it triggers various planets and points in your chart...maybe it doesn't!)

Therefore, no important judgments or decisions about events should be made until the influence of this eclipse fades for too much deception and illusion exist for anyone to be clearly informed or realistically inspired.

Then there are those who do the confusing, deceiving, and magic tricks meant to veil the truth!

Note: the White House's natal Venus is eclipsed for natal Venus (Nov 1, 1800) lies @ 2Sag11 in the 10th house of the 'noon' chart. (Nov 1, 1800 is the day the Madisons moved in to occupy the W-H for the first time. You may wish to scroll the sidebar of this blog for 'What James Madison was saying in 1817', the year of the Monroe Doctrine which may now be aiding the warmongering global elite puppeteers as they maneuver to plop the US into yet another broiling broth of war - such as in N/S Korea.)

More Time Links between 1074 and Our Day?

For historical perspective on the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse, it may be instructive to consider that the 14N Series first manifested on April 29, 1074 OS @ 13Tau54, with Neptune - the veil - @ 9Gem09 Rx, where gold-hoarder Midas, the asteroid, hangs around these days.

This Neptune-Midas time link leads me to suspect that 'the veil' mentioned above in the 14N theme info, in Nov 2011, has to do with the world's wealth and resources which are close to being completely gathered in and hidden away by the global power elite who don't need more riches in order to put food on their tables, but use the illusion of money to ramp up within each of us our senses of lack, want, inferiority, and loss. With currency collapses possible, the olden days of bartering may have to return.

The 1074 eclipse degree of '13Tau54' is within one degree of our modern Inaugural Ascendants which always represent the Oath of Office of the President of the United States (Jan 20 @ noon in DC), and thus, the US presidency and whoever is playing the role at any given time.

14N's initial eclipse in the year 1074 also has Saturn @ 8Sag11 showing that the eclipse in this difficult series occurred during a Saturn/Neptune opposition phase which stimulates within the collective morbid, morose, melancholy thoughts, and a tendency toward irrational fears stemming from deep within the collective unconscious.

As you know, the antithetical Saturn/Neptune duo of energies indicates such social issues, concerns, and conditions as socialism and/or communism, where Saturn's rigidity, realism, and stability meets Neptune's dreaminess, dissolution, and fraud. Together they represent caution, pessimism, long periods of neglect, and a general lack of accountability; large social movements are also involved as authority (Saturn) is challenged (opposition) by the masses(Neptune) - and possibly authority is challenged by the media (Neptune)!

Another interpretation of Saturn/Neptune may be particularly highlighted as well esp if you tend to use the 'Sibly' natal chart for America (5:10 pm LMT on July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA) because our national Saturn 14Lib48 and Neptune 22Vir25 straddle the Midheaven 00-2Lib giving our nation a Sat/Nep = Mc vibe = taking a stand on practices which lessen the quality of life and a reputation (Mc) for correcting such practices; using shortened, inefficient methods when tough, dedicated, completed work is needed;giving up and capitulating to the demands of the environment; peculiar loss of ambition; materialism vs idealism; emotional suffering; moodiness; losing courage quickly.

In the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse chart pictured above, Mercury 21Sag22 in 1st house, sits precisely upon the Saturn/Neptune midpoint... so we have: 'pessimism; a difficult grasp of things; strangely nervous' to begin 2011 - and the difficult 14 North Series to end the year. For this and other reasons, 2011 will be a doozy.

And, of course, a most basic consideration for America whenever it comes to Saturn/Neptune is: Neptune (invisible; shadow) government (Saturn) and the continuing mystery of just who is really in charge of America.

Closing the year is the December 20, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11, not quite close enough to US natal Mars to count as an 'eclipsing' but near enough for some military and police fretting to occur especially when we think of how 2011 began: with a Solar Eclipse conjoined by the explosive Mars/Pluto midpoint upon it, so that two pictures are created:

Mars/Pluto = Sun: working hard until collapse; violent measures; injury or accident; shock from the intervention of a Higher Power; effectively imposing one's will or theories upon others; a pushy or demanding nature; achievements attained by superior techniques or endurance.

Mars/Pluto = Moon: a strong impulse to proceed with ideas or plans; using traditional means of power to meet goals; audacity and daring; ambition; impulsive or hasty actions; a determined woman.

The year-end effects of the Dec 2011 Lunar Eclipse influence the start of the year 2012 with the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse providing background vibes; the first Solar Eclipse of 2012 doesn't occur until May 20, 2012 @ 00Gem in the 14 South Series when "an obsessive idea is finally accepted"; 14S last occurred in 1994 and thereby resurfaces issues from the 1994 Republican take-over of Congress; it may also indicate some types of property settlements (Gaza? the US foreclosure mess? other?)

Completing the 2011 eclipse list

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles the December 2011 Lunar Eclipse Solicitations with its ruler Mercury accenting communications, speakers, messages, negotiations, youth, transport, trade, and education; we may as well go ahead and add 'reporters, journalists, and bloggers' to the slosh as war (Mars/Pluto) propaganda (Mercury) envelopes and attempts to persuade the world to bomb innocent people once again.



Venus 26Sco51, planet of valuations and relationships, rises with asteroids Lilith and Panacea; chart-ruler Mars 20Cap59, a critical degree, makes only one applying aspect: a conjunction to the eclipse (7A21) so we have:

Sun/Moon = Mars: desire to bring ideas and plans to fruition; a realization of joint ventures.

Co-ruler Pluto only makes an applying trine to Mc; Lord of the Eclipse, Saturn 16Lib48 in 11th house, applies to a square with the eclipse (3A09); Saturn is in the midst of a three-fer US Saturn Return 14Lib48 (which is squared by this eclipse.)

This planetary situation creates an emphasis on America's natal Sun/Saturn square which forms a 'Fist of God' pattern with US natal Moon 27AQ10 at apex.

Our natal Sun/Saturn = Moon: attention to daily activities; emotional or organic depression; feeling inferior or inhibited; bereavement; fear.

Substitute our natal Moon (we-the-people) in the above midpoint equation with the Jan 2011 eclipse's Neptune 26AQ50 and we have...

n Sun/Saturn = Jan 2011 Neptune: a mental, emotional, or physical crisis; inhibitions; inner peculiarities; a relaxation of plans that are thought to be too rigid ('austerity' or 'entitlement cuts'? jc); delusion within relationships; loneliness.

Also, Pluto trine Mc provides the chart with Pluto sextile Ic, an aspect which describes those who wish to control others and make all decisions, secretiveness and quarrels, and sleuthing into other people's business. Investigators, librarians, historians, police and military forces, secret agencies at home (Ic), and archaeologists are particularly highlighted. (The Sextile, Alan Epstein.)

You may notice that the HOW? Point of the chart (Ic) is @ '11Pis' = "Men Seeking Illumination", a symbol which outs the much-disputed Illuminati presence in America.

The wounding, confusing, watery transits of Neptune and Chiron to US natal Moon continue to plague us with fraud, dissolution, homelessness and foreclosures; tr Pluto, the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, opposes US natal Jupiter, a period when US financial matters and professional status are not favored; measures taken during this time will not be sufficient though we may not actually know just who stands in our way due to devouring Pluto's invisible cloak and subversive, sabotaging methods.

The sign Gemini indicates communication, transportation, and trade issues; occurring in the 8th house when set for Washington DC, there may be a death or resignation of a public figure (Poppy or Mommy Bush?); treaties and negotiations with foreign countries may be negatively impacted.

...as we enter 2012. And then there are those who do the confusing, and deceiving along with their magic tricks meant to veil the truths we need to know in order to make wise decisions! Well, manipulative Pluto does like to hold all the cards.

Note: the White House's natal Venus is eclipsed/conjoined in Nov 2011 for natal Venus (Nov 1, 1800) lies @ 2Sag11 in the 10th house of the 'noon' chart.

In the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse chart pictured above, Mercury 21Sag22 in 1st house, sits precisely upon the Saturn/Neptune midpoint... so we have: 'pessimism; a difficult grasp of things; strangely nervous' to begin 2011 - and the difficult 14 North Series to end the year. For this and other reasons, 2011 will be a doozy.

And, of course, a most basic consideration for America whenever it comes to Saturn/Neptune is: Neptune (invisible; shadow) government (Saturn) and the continuing mystery of just who is really in charge of America.

Closing the year is the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11, not quite close enough to US natal Mars to count as an 'eclipsing' but near enough for some military and police fretting to occur especially when we think of how 2011 began: with a Solar Eclipse conjoined by the explosive Mars/Pluto midpoint upon it, so that two pictures are created:

Mars/Pluto = Sun: working hard until collapse; violent measures; injury or accident; shock from the intervention of a Higher Power; effectively imposing one's will or theories upon others; a pushy or demanding nature; achievements attained by superior techniques or endurance.

Mars/Pluto = Moon: a strong impulse to proceed with ideas or plans; using traditional means of power to meet goals; audacity and daring; ambition; impulsive or hasty actions; a determined woman.

The year-end effects of the Dec 2011 Lunar Eclipse influence the start of the year 2012 with the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse providing background vibes; the first Solar Eclipse of 2012 doesn't occur until May 20, 2012 @ 00Gem in the 14 South Series when "an obsessive idea is finally accepted"; 14S last occurred in 1994 and thereby resurfaces issues from the 1994 Republican take-over of Congress; it may also indicate some types of property settlements (Gaza? the US foreclosure mess? other?)

Completing our 2011 eclipse list

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse Solicitations with its ruler Mercury accenting communications, speakers, messages, negotiations, youth, transport, trade, speculations, and education; we may as well go ahead and add 'reporters, journalists, and bloggers' to the slosh as war (Mars/Pluto) propaganda (Mercury) envelopes and attempts to persuade the world to bomb defenseless people once again thus expand the globalists' totalitarian reach.

*The January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse times a Sun-opposite-natal-Sun transit for the US when the year's path or agenda is reconsidered with an eye toward making changes in the trajectory if things aren't going as planned.
