The Very 1st Great American Eclipse

Historical and Eclipse Cycles Rhyme and Forewarn

by Jude Cowell

Previously we discussed the 3 Great American Eclipses and below is a DC Horoscope of the very first Great American Eclipse of July 29, 1878. Falling within the 6 South Saros Series, a consideration may be timely because a Solar Eclipse repeats in the 6 South Series on October 25, 2022 @2Scorpio conjunct Venus in Scorpio which adds a potential for materialism. You'll find the 6 South themes that society must again deal with listed below; and, karmic as it all is, hopefully society will manage the arrogant Leonine energies in a more positive manner this time around as we view the October 2022 eclipse through the lens of 6 South's initial eclipse sign of hazy, if compassionate, Pisces - one end of the victim-savior polarity.

1878 Eclipse @6Leo33 conjunct US North Node of Future Direction: "The Constellations in the Sky"

We should note that the 1878 Eclipse Path of Totality was about 118 miles wide and raced across the Rocky Mountains, the Wyoming Territory (Thomas Edison was there which attracted quite a bit of publicity for the cosmic event), but its path began in Russia.

Rhyming Witch Hunts, Illness, Elections Then and Now

How about a little context? In 1878 after a contentious election tossed to Congress to decide the victor (a 2020 result Trump would have accepted), Rutherford B. Hayes was installed as president and the 45th Congress was sitting upon Capitol Hill. See The Electoral Commission of 1877 for details.

Now among US Events of 1878 are a yellow fever outbreak that killed thousands of people (Aesculapia conjunct contagious Neptune in the 1878 horoscope), and - get this - the last of the Salem Witch Trials in the US was held.

Known as the 1878 Salem (or, Ipswich) Trial, the victim was Daniel H. Spofford, accused of using "mesmerism" on Lucretia Brown, a 50-yo spinster (see the IC's Sabian Symbol!) living in Ipswich, Massachusetts; the proceeding was held on May 14, 1878. Now these folks were early Christian Scientists, adherents of Mary Baker Eddy, who made "mind control" and mental powers such as hypnosis (mesmerism) a topic in her speeches for the rest of her life. Controversy remains as to whether Baker Eddy was actually behind the civil lawsuit against Spofford, yet some say it was only Miss Brown (the aggrieved), but if we go by the Sabian Symbol of the IC, or, Foundation, the HOW? Point in the 1878 eclipse horoscope, we might guess that it was not one but two ladies involved! And prim ones at that.

Of course, these days we're dealing with hyper-Christians and puritanical theocrats who pervert "what Jesus would do" and spout what they imagine to be "noble lies." A form of mass mesmerism is suggested.

Then in recent years we've had multiple mentions of witches for it's a favorite accusation from Trump - that he's target of a "witch hunt," a pitiful ploy for sympathy. He said it again just recently because of the August 8, 2022 FBI search of Mar-a-Lago for stolen White House documents, classified and nuclear related, as it turns out (Venus-Pluto). But the witch wasn't home that morning. He was in NYC at a deposition for which he pleaded the fifth 440 times! For that's what guilty mobsters do because answering truthfully admits to committing crimes.

As for current day mesmerism, for years listening to Trump's disjointed rhetoric I've wondered if the orange blighter uses some kind of mind control technique to convince his audiences of what should by all that's rational be absurdly bizarre claptrap unsuitable for any ear but the most gullible. He's definitely a demagogue "telling them what they want to hear using the power of 'positive' lying" kind of propagandist. And after all, his natal Mercury in Cancer reveals what's on his mind and tongue, collecting gossip being one of his special talents (which goes well with blackmailing activities). "Serious indiscretions" are also indicated - and which are now under scrutiny with the distinct possibility that Herr T "shared" (sold) America's secrets to the highest bidder. Mar-a-Lago surveillance tapes should tell this tale about this lucrative money-making scheme since leaving the White House. My guess is that he had already sold secrets while in the Oval Office. Tragically, this is what happens when a foreign agent is allowed to occupy the US presidency.

So who in Washington DC didn't know what he was and couldn't see our current predicament coming from miles away? Well, maybe now America's Espionage Act will come in handy.

Anyway, I thought a view of the very first Great American Eclipse might interest a few readers, and I added the Sabian Symbols for the chart's Angles, plus, a few other astro-notes for the ultra-curious. Through the years we might say that 6 South eclipses are Pisces-Leo-Virgo-Scorpio affairs with planetary influences proceeding through Jupiter-Neptune-Sun-Mercury - and now we're at a Mars-Pluto stage of manic energy.

6 South's Mars-Pluto and Venus-Pluto Vibes: Violent Fanaticism

Now for 6 South themes that many of us are feeling already. Their thematic influences will grow stronger beginning for up to two weeks prior to the October 25, 2022 Solar Eclipse (appr. Oct 11th+) and have also influenced historic events when a 6 South eclipse manifested on August 31, 1932 (Total then, too) as what I unhappily term the Nazis Rise to Power Eclipse with its possessive Venus-Pluto conjunction in Cancer. Financial concerns are suggested then and now along with fanaticism and jealousy.

Plus, here's a view of the October 25, 2022 Solar Eclipse with emphasis on the forceful, often brutal, weapon-carrying duo of Mars-Pluto which were in opposition at the initial 6 South Eclipse (March 6, 1049) but the pair, with Mars out-of-bounds and acting independently, will be inconjunct at the next manifestation of 6 South in October 2022 and - pass it on - this indicates that beneficial adjustments can be made. In fact, it's time for them. So hopefully, the DOJ's and other investigations into Trump's suspicious activities will result in improvements for America and the common good.

Then on a bizarre, morbid level (where the Mango Mussolini exists), a few political pundits are even wondering what secrets Trump might have buried on his golf course with Ivana! If she was cremated as reported, why is her gravesite coffin-shaped?

Themes of 6 South: "being forceful and taking power; manic energy with great force or strength in relationships; sudden events; exerting huge efforts in group endeavors" (Predictive Astrology, B. Brady #ad).

To me this means that rational Americans who prefer democracy, the US Constitution, the rule of law, and America's traditional Enlightenment principles, absolutely must make huge efforts in order to counter the global fascist/neo-nazi mania, therefore, We The People must have no less than a Blue Tsunami turn-out in November and again in November 2024!

Great American Eclipses: 1878, 2017, 2024

August 2, 2022

Karmic Signposts via 'Wild Cards of the Universe'

by Jude Cowell

Many moons ago in August 2018, we discussed the three Total Great American Eclipses of 1878, 2017, and 2024 and now I'm finally getting around to writing a brief overview of the three eclipses in relation to America, primarily via the signs of the Zodiac in which the three 'Cosmic Blink' Eclipses (aka, 'Wild Cards of the Universe') have and will manifest, plus, any contacts or cosmic time links with planets, points, or stars that may be 'eclipsed'.

Since the three paths of totality cutting cross our country have been previously mentioned in various posts, I won't repeat my notes here, but you're invited to scroll down the sidebar of SO'W and type 'Eclipses' or another label into the Search field such as the Saros Series of the three which are: 6 South, 1 North, and 8 North. Of course, employing a search engine of your choice can also turn up path of totality information using dates of the eclipses listed, below.

Now as you know, the significance of the three eclipses that directly affect America is in relation to historical events occurring under the influence that a disruptive Uranian eclipse can engender for 6 months or more after manifestation, and often for up to two weeks prior while the earlier eclipse themes remain in force, but are weakening.

Sensitive and critical degrees can factor in, and obviously, other cosmic conditions and earthly events during their particular years of occurrence are worth considering for a more comprehensive view which, in this case, means years 1878, 2017, and 2024. Meanwhile, Total eclipses have the strongest effects of all particularly in locations directly in one's path of totality. However, my use of eclipses tends to be mainly degree-based, and notably, New Moons and Full Moons sometimes behave in Uranian fashion similar to Solar and Lunar Eclipses. One way to tell if this happens is when a mere lunation such as a Full Moon reveals inconvenient facts and/or activates a change of course in earthly events!

Leo, Leo, then Aries: Major Sun-Mars Vibrations

6 South Solar Eclipse July 29, 1878 @6Leo33 and 1 North Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @28Leo52: both are Leo Solar Eclipses spotlighting Leonine issues of leadership and authority. Difficulties must be approached with resolve for half-hearted solutions gain little or nothing. Ruled by the Sun, positive traits of the sign of Leo suggests self-confidence, vigor, and natural leadership ability, however, negative traits such as self-centeredness, egocentricity, pomposity, vanity, ostentation, and overblown pride create stumbling blocks to karmic progress (R. Lineman).

In addition, Leo Eclipses denote karmic relationships with father figures and/or offspring, so I'll let you decide, dear reader, who these negative Leonine traits describe and who has blocked America's progress, particularly since 2017. Hint: an entire overweening political party is involved, plus, their figurehead.

Eclipse Contacts and Cosmic Links

Of note is that the 6 South Eclipse of 1878 conjoined US 1776 North Node of future direction, while the 1 North Eclipse of 2017 conjoined royal Regulus with its 'success if revenge is avoided' caution - conjunct the natal Ascendant and rising Mars of the orange seditionist (who foolishly gazed directly at the eclipse without safety glasses). Significantly, 1 North is the "Mother of All Eclipses" Saros Series which heralded the New Millennium, and can be called the 'Nostradamus Eclipse' which manifested on August 11, 1999 @19Leo with its Fixed Grand Cross of prophetic difficulties (affecting the entire world, not just the US with terror and alarm). Also with Leo, child abuse issues and anti-child-abuse campaigns are also be indicated (as they have been), along with laws concerning these issues with dramatic Leo also being a sign associated with lawyers and legal affairs. Then we might also add misogyny against women and abortion rights to the issues since Leo is the sign of 'romance' and the pregnancies that can result, and affected by several other cosmic factors that are beyond the scope of this post.

So! Next up will be the 8 North Eclipse of April 8, 2024 @19Ari24 precisely conjunct centaur Chiron (@19Ari24). The presence of wounded healer (or, blindspot) Chiron at that degree suggests several possibilities for America, not the least of which is due to the nearness of our nation's Chiron Return (@20Ari08, a three-fer), a period when moral values and higher ethics may resurface due to Chiron's association with roots, or even 'priesthood' - and in Mars-ruled Aries, Chiron suggests damage to our nation's sense of self-identity. So for me, if Enlightenment principles of 1776 are part of the resurfacing picture, so be it! Because it seems promising that 8 North themes include 'new-found inspiration, inventiveness, insights, visions, and vivid dreams' (B. Brady). Of course, how practical such solutions may be must remain to be seen.

Now another factor in today's overview is this: that, because there are three Total eclipses, it's possible to think of them as facets within an ongoing process similar to the direct-retrograde-direct phases of planets in their orbits - you know, the denial-acceptance-solution model. But this concept I'll leave for you, dear reader, to engage with on that level or not, as you wish.

The good news is that if this solution-based model applies, year 2024 may turn out better for our nation than many folks now fear due to recent stresses in society such as the activities of saboteurs and seditionists, both foreign and domestic. For if We The People make it through the period affected by the 2024 Great American Eclipse and its effects, a measure of relief can ease the stresses and strains our nation has been victimized and exploited by for decades, even centuries (since America has had enemies from the start), and our democratic Republic, tattered as it may or may not be, will live on.

Yet realistically, we know that first we must deal with the fact that 2024 is a Presidential Election year in the US, and cheaters, election-riggers, and lying propagandists are hard at work determined to sway outcomes their way, no matter how and at any cost. Why, it's almost as if the Republicans' favorite idols, psychopath Ayn Rand with her child murdering 'ideal man' complex, and the perverted racist Herr Adolf are on the ballot because they hope that sadistic, paternalistic authoritarianism will "win" the day, thereby tossing America's Enlightenment principles of 1776 into the trash bin of history.

But there's an intriguing factoid to remember about America: there are a lot more of us than there are of them!

Now in closing, here's a view of the 8 North Eclipse of 2024 horoscope set for Washington DC including details. And we should mention that the 8 North Eclipse of 2024, listed above, is not the Solar Eclipse that will directly influence the 2024 Election, 8 South is.
