Mea culpa! The title of this post contains a typo: the Solar Eclipse manifests this evening, March 8, 2016 at 8:54 pm EST but to edit the title messes with the functioning of the link! Once Moon meets Sun, Luna becomes void-of-course until Wednesday March 9. jc
Original post begins here:
Tomorrow evening a Solar Eclipse manifests @19Pisces in the 18 South Saros Series:
18 South themes include potentials for: endings, separations, and partings which can relate to travel or to endings of relationships or alliances; grief and anguish may follow yet the pain of separation can be lessened by new situations which create positive outcomes (Brady's Predictive Astrology).
As you know, the sign of an initial eclipse in a series colors the eclipse--here it's a Jupiter-Neptune Pisces eclipse through a Mars-Pluto Scorpio lens, both emotional water signs but one Mutable (changeable), the other rigid, willful energy that, if conditions are right, may easily relate to war, aggression, and conflict. The Initial Eclipse of the 18S Series occurred on August 20, 1096 OS @3Sco29 with forceful Mars-Pluto undertones; this degree conjoins the current position of US Secondary Progressed Saturn Rx showing America's compromised authority in the world.
A major factor that occurred within the 18S initial eclipse is an obsessive quindecile aspect (165 degrees between two money planets, Venus and Jupiter which on one level can provide much creative energy but also indicates an excessive drive for relationships and/or money; ideals, morals, and ethics are often based on material gain, belief systems tend to motivate action, and excess and indulgence are definite potentials. For positive expressions of 18S, education is essential. (Reeves, The Quindecile.)
Actually, Campaign 2016 has a couple of candidates who allegedly use a 'belief system' for political guidance and to represent them with the evangelical community. However, gaining the Oval Office may or may not be a positive result for the American people if theocrats are riding the Washington gravy train while misrepresenting our Founding Fathers as promoters of the Christian religion when it was Age of Reason (Uranus-Neptune) principles that America was modeled upon and not that ole time religion of a later century.
As for the 18 South Solar Eclipse that occurs tomorrow, there's an interesting list of characters and entities born or occurring under 18S such as: Sirhan Sirhan, Craig Ferguson, Rudy Giuliani, Marilyn Monroe, Mark Twain, Piet Mondrian, the city of St. Augustine, Florida, the US hostage release by Iran (staged just in time for Reagan's first Inauguration)--and the surrender of General Cornwallis to General George Washington at an hour, date, and location of Freemason George's choosing (as we're told).
In rhyming with History fashion, 18S has manifested in the years 1908, 1926, 1944, 1962, 1980 (Reagan decade beginning), 1998, (2016). It will next occur in the year 2034 though you may wish to consider events of past years and all of the US president who oversaw them in search for similar themes or events (ex: a campaign manager or staffer leaves a candidate's employ) for these may return to our Collective Mind for re-evaluation in 2016.
