Horoscope: July 27, 2018 Lunar Eclipse conj Mars Rx

DC Horoscope: Lunar Eclipse @4AQ44 July 27, 2018 4:20:17 pm edt White House Washington DC = Radical Events; Hour of an unaspected Mercury Rx @23Leo20, 9th house. When unaspected, the thinking-communicating planet Mercury knows little of which it speaks due to its limited interests and lack of curiosity or experience in a variety of realms.

This is a prominent Total Lunar Eclipse occurring upon America's natal South Node of the Moon so a dependency upon past actions or solutions may be evident and may or may not be sufficient to deal with present circumstances. As you see, testy Mars Rx in Aquarius accompanies the eclipse which provides dynamic energy and motivation but premature action and past quarrels and anger may erupt. And since eclipses tend to uncover hidden conditions and secrets, this Lunar Eclipse won't be shy in that department.

Meetings and encounters are suggested (Sun-NN) for POTUS and other leaders (Sun) while those of a feminine persuasion (Moon) may be left behind (SN) and feeling enraged (Moon-Mars). That America's natal Nodal Axis is involved suggests we've been here before and one may think of past SCOTUS or other legal rulings which directly affect women and families including Trump's self-created, cold-hearted border crisis. Corporate and other financial realms are affected by the eclipse perfecting across the 2/8 axis in DC with the National Treasury (2nd house) under stress thanks mostly to spendthrift, wastrel politicians (Jupiter-Neptune) who continue to style themselves as "conservatives".

Now with 6Sag51 rising, moneybags Jupiter is chart-ruler and makes only one applying Ptolemaic aspect, a trine with Neptune which hints at financial schemes or fraud (see lower left corner of the chart), plus tricky conditions, dumb luck, inspired creativity, and our visionary abilities expanded (to see how much better things could be!) Beware get-rich-quick schemes (as always!) and try hard to focus on reality as much as possible. Upholding truth would be good as well though it's difficult with the massive amounts of propaganda we're subjected to from all directions--also a function of Jupiter-Neptune.

Now I neglected to circle it but there is an inconjunct between Sun (POTUS) and law-abiding Saturn, the authority. This shows consciousness of a sense of guilt and the need to be taken to task for one's past mistakes. It seems that someone's needs for significance and recognition are being hampered just now and an adjustment is necessary on the level of personal authority and accountability. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump's obsession with constantly comparing his achievements with those of others only points out his flaws and failures rather than having the brainwashing effect he expects--even with all the whoppers he tells to boost his image! Well, as you know, Saturn isn't about 'image', he's about the facts and he demands them.

So with fire-starter Mars out-of-bounds (OOBs) of the earthly plane (off on his own in rigid Aquarius) we still must add his frustration (Rx) to the dynamic energy encased within the T-Square/s that point to radical Uranus so we expect many changes and reforms as pent-up energies and pressures are suddenly released into the environment. Possible expressions include political policies and regulations that anger many people, depression, a potential for more suicides, natural disasters such as quakes and/or tsunamis, more volcanic activity, arson, explosions, violence, riots, protests, strikes, war, and general strife. Pressure must be released and a certain sense of purging may be the eventual outcome and this may involve US natal Neptune in Virgo (22Virgo) which sits atop the Aspiration Point of this chart. In Virgo, delusional Neptune can be fault-finding and with a pathological sensitivity, plus, Mars in Aquarius also likes to criticize though it's often superficial. Even so, our usual delusions and disappointments over Virgoan matters such as employment and health may surface (MC) under the rays of this karmic Full Moon in Aquarius and be brought into the public discourse once again. Perhaps abortion issues such as Roe v Wade will continue to be a heated part of the conversation since a new conservative SCOTUS Justice may threaten to unsettle the law, and of course, Virgo is also the sign of The Virgin so sexual and gender issues are certain to be on the political agenda.

And of course, as anyone can tell, this promises to be a Long Hot Summer. With Mr. 'Red Tie' Trump having natal Mars rising and being born under his own Saturnian Moon-SN conjunction (with Sun conjunct NN and Uranus, his chaotic guiding planet in Career 10th), he's definitely a large participant in this difficult cosmic picture and is certain to be directly affected by its energies which perfect within his natal 6th house of Health, Work, Service, and Daily Rounds. However, he may choose to blow of steam through speeches, throwing tantrums, and/or by projecting onto others via Military or Police actions (6th house). Yet if he should choose this course, his actions will be premature.
