Current Conditions through the Lens of Eclipses

2020: Cosmic Time links via Historical Eclipses Now Reflected

by Jude Cowell

If you agree that solar and lunar eclipses yield fascinating information concerning the societal and historical realms, perhaps you caught a previous SO'W post Is This a Haunting Eclipse from 1777?. Manifesting within the 14 North Saros Series @13Can10--conjunct US natal Sun--a 14 North Solar Eclipse repeated as the 'Sequestration Eclipse' of November 25, 2011 ('a peculiar turn of events; illness; unexpected happenings in relationships and finances'). Now in 2020, we as a people are feeling 'sequestered' as we practice the doctor-recommended 'social distancing' and 'shelter in place' tactics intended to counter the spread of 'novel coronavirus' which, if infected, leads to Covid-19. Where observed, improvement in stats is shown and curves are "flattened." However, the fight must continue!

Simultaneously, the American people's stamina, endurance, and willingness to follow orders are being tested by government officials who are not necessarily following their own orders. Meanwhile, allegations have been made that celebrities and perhaps certain politicians have been paid to reveal that they have contracted the virus but are 'better now'. Cured even! Tests are readily available for them but for the rest of us, not so much.

So with eclipse themes running in the background of society and solar eclipses having a 19-year cycle of occurrence, history rhymes cyclically (giving society a chance to deal with themes more positively and make karmic progress 'this time around') so that current conditions may be studied via eclipses in history that either repeat by Series (ex: 14 North won't repeat until December 5, 2029 @14Sag), or are activated by degree, or, eclipse themes sometimes repeat within societal conditions so repetition of events/themes are also significant and may be tracked by previous eclipses conjoining modern eclipse degrees. Plus, as you know, certain degrees are deemed from ancient times to be critical or crisis degrees--as are 29 and 00 degrees which can add a sense of impatience and/or rashness to situations.

Summer 2020 Lunar Eclipses Activate Past Solar Eclipses

The Lunar Eclipse @15Sag34 of June 5, 2020 activates and reflects the 16 South Solar Eclipse of December 7, 1779 @15Sag45; 16 South Themes now reflected: 'misdirected motivations; wasted energy especially when dealing with groups'. Therefore, the Sabian Symbol of this degree, rounded-up, is also significant in Summer 2020: '16Sag' = "Seagulls Watching a Ship: Keyword: ALERTNESS; positive expression: a gift for recognizing every opportunity at hand; negative": (unconscious/shadow side--jc): "aimless expectation." Now you may disagree but for me, this symbol describes Trump's recent and continuing performance and his pie-in-the-sky expectations, plus, the plutocrats' habit of seeing every crisis as opportunity--especially the crises they engineer against us. It may also describe both friends and enemies of America watching our Ship of State sinking under the weight of corrupt governance, sails lowered.

Next this Summer comes the Lunar Eclipse of July 5, 2020 @13Cap10. Obviously this 'eclipses' US natal Sun (13Can19 of July 4, 1776 = leader/s) and also activates and reflects the Total Solar Eclipse of July 4, 1777 in the 14 North Saros series, as mentioned and linked, above. Which is why I ask you, feeling sequestered yet? How about oppressed as during our Revolutionary era? And of course, the Cancer-Capricorn polarity contains Security issues and Home vs Career concerns, plus, Health conditions are implicated through the signs' Moon-Saturn influences. And naturally, Moon-to-Sun echoes a New Moon, a phase of 'seeding plans' as a new cycle of activity begins in the realm of The Public vs Authority Figures.

Now to close this fussy post, I am compelled to remind my fellow Americans in case anyone has forgotten that just because a Revolutionary War for freedom and independence from oppression was fought and won in the past doesn't mean that we don't need to fight for America all over again, even while an invisible enemy taunts and undermines us--as it did then. And globally, it's a very similar cosmic picture, the details of which will be more fully revealed and spotlighted by the June 2020 Summer Solstice Eclipse perfecting upon a Cardinal World Point of Manifestation and Recognition. And happily we should note that 00Cancer is the 'Gate to Life' degree.

So to open and enter such a grand portal, our need for stamina and endurance must continue, m'peops!
