Covid Eclipse 2019 and the manic 1518 Dance Epidemic

Choreography! Must We Put On Our Dancing Shoes?

August 11, 2021: Earlier today, while searching for the precise moment of the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of 1518 @4Cap17:28, I ran across one event of 1518 that particularly stands out to me in light of current conditions and events. And knowing that eclipses are 'wild cards of the Universe' and 'cosmic blinks' with their Uranian tendency to disrupt and change the course of earthly affairs, the Dancing Plague of 1518, aka, a dance epidemic (there have been multiple such ones in history, a famous example: St. Vitus' dance, aka, Sydenham's chorea) popped out.

Now as you know, late 2019 into early 2020 times the approximate entry of the Covid-19 contagion into the US and by March 2020, quarantine conditions were generally recommended. My first observance of the quarantine was on March 12, 2020 when I retreated from the world and became an 'artist-in-residence' (not such a bad thing for me). For as you know, the difficult Saturn-Pluto combo of karmic energies tends to be destructive, harsh, and can involve compulsion, forms of compression, and physical toil; a period of hardship is indicated. Such was 2020, no one's favorite year, but there certainly have been a lot of choreographed dance routines turning up on Instagram and tik tok, often in the form of various shuffle dances. Here's one that reminds me of 1518 because it's on the manic side and rather itchy!

Meanwhile, here's a previous post showing the DC Horoscopes of the 3 South 'Covid Eclipse' of December 26, 2019, plus, the first eclipse of 2020 which was the January 10th Lunar Eclipse in Cancer conjunct Castor which perfected very near the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Pluto (January 12, 2020).

Yet admittedly, it isn't so much the cosmic link to 'dancing' I'm most interested in, it's the use of the words 'epidemic' and 'plague' that echo through our current tragic health crises in relation to the mysterious dance outbreaks of 1518 with their cause or causes still considered unknown or uncertain. Social conditions were difficult in Alsace (present-day France) at that time and "hot blood" had been floated as a cause or possibly ergot fungi poisoning (as with the Salem Witch Trials in the US), or even the hysteria of demonic possession or stress-induced mass psychosis similar to the mass hypnosis perpetrated by a certain politician upon willing acolytes, some of whom might be described as "possessed" by the spirit of a death cult and stirred up to a point of mania. After all, history usually only rhymes and does not repeat in an exact way, for planetary factors will naturally differ. But one curious example not so different is 1518 Uranus Station Direct @4Tau19 and 2019 'Covid Eclipse' Uranus @2Tau45 Rx. In our day, transit Uranus has returned to its 1518 degree three times: 1. May 25, 2019; 2. November 4, 2019; and 3. March 15, 2020 (quarantine time! Uranian isolation!). Also related to our topic is the disturbing Sabian Symbol for "5Taurus" = "A Widow At An Open Grave." (Some of the dancers of 1518 apparently danced themselves to death although this is disputed by some.)

Meanwhile, we know that it's all about cycles - planetary cycles, eclipse cycles, historical cycles, and a comparison of the 1518 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction (January 3, 1518 OS) Horoscope with the December 26, 2019 Eclipse chart shows other planetary links as well: cycles within cycles.

And so the purpose of this post is to point out a curious cosmic time link affecting the 1518 conjunction of karmic planets Saturn and Pluto @4Cap17 for it may have been tweaked if not activated by degree when the 3 South Solar Eclipse of December 26, 2019 @4Cap06 hit it. So if you wish, follow the above 'Lunar Eclipse' link for a view of what I call the 'Covid Eclipse Horoscope' with its themes of 'traumatic transformation' and 'endings' (Predictive Astrology, B. Brady #ad).

But there's another cosmic link of a Uranian nature: the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') of the 1518 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction which is the 6 South Solar Eclipse of December 13, 1517 @00Cap55, a Cardinal World Point of manifestation, with 6 South themes of: 'manic energy; being forceful and taking power; great strength in relationships; sudden events; exerting huge efforts in group activities' (paraphrasing B. Brady).

And as previously mentioned in multiple posts, a 6 South eclipse perfects again on October 25, 2022 @2Scorpio and had also manifested on August 31, 1932 @8Virgo as the historically coordinated 'Nazis Rise to Power Solar Eclipse'.
