G20 Summit opens w/ Lunar Eclipse: YOD in Toronto

Update June 25: the 'disagreements' mentioned in my post below are being noted in the CNN Political Ticker today and the G20 jawboning has yet to officially begin!

Original post begins here:

"To deal with the global economy," is the reason for this weekend's global summit, says Canada's PM Harper, and all week long I've been antsy (due to busy-ness) to find confirmation that the G20 Summit in Toronto will begin on Friday, June 26, 2010 in tandem with the June 26 Lunar Eclipse 4Cap46 conjunct Pluto 4Cap06 Rx @ 7:30 am edt in Washington, DC, with US natal Mercury Rx rising opposite US natal Pluto conjunct Descendant (7th house of Partnerships.)

Well, here it is.

And apparently it's going to take a small army of security forces to protect their hallowed brows and expanded brains and ideologies from anti-G20 protesters who are not impressed with their style of meddling in people's lives.

If you click the Eclipse link above you'll see the horoscope set for the White House which is almost identical to one set for Toronto - both @ 7:30:18 am edt. And both charts have '27 Cancer' rising, an apt degree considering current events because the Sabian Symbol for '27Can' = "A Furious Storm Rages Through a Residential Canyon."

Therefore, America's natal Mercury/Pluto opposition remains on the ASC/DESC axis for Toronto on June 26, 2010. Yet Mc/Ic axis differs, for at the White House, Mc '11Ari' = "The President of the Country," and as you know, ASC = the WHAT? Point of any chart. In our current case, that would be President Obama.

But in Toronto, Mc = '9Ari' = "A Crystal Gazer" which makes me wonder if it's a "McCrystal" gazer at the top of the summit's agenda. We do know that fury and rage lurk just outside the summit's hotel doors, don't we?

Besides the fact that evaluating Venus in 1st house in Toronto (in 2nd house in DC), another difference between the two locations has to do with 2/8 axis issues such as money, shared resources, and transformation (a la PM Harper's justification noted above.)

Interestingly, in Toronto (not in DC), the ASC degree is just late enough to clock into a *YOD pattern, a Finger of God configuration indicating a special task, crisis, or a turning point - a critical situation which must be attended to by current actors and which was left incomplete by past actors (or generations.)

There is also a potential for health conditions or illness to interfere with proceedings, or to appear within the collective due to a YOD's 1st/6th/8th house connotations.

The YOD in Toronto involves...

Saturn/ASC = Neptune (in 8th house, both charts): depressing and introverted life situations; arguments about strange dimensions or obscure things; over making a point; a depressing environment; disagreements cause separations; dreaming of what the world should be like as opposed to what it is.

(Midpoint picture: Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey; any, all, or none may apply, yet I suspect that these days, they all do.)

With General McCrystal and President Obama, the separation has already occurred though more may be at hand, and with transiting South Node hanging about US natal Sun (the leader) since April.

Now if we can just get the Pentagon and White House to admit that the Afghanistan jig is up. Our now-retrograde US Secondary Progressed Mars (military forces) is showing and withdrawal must be accepted! Paying Taliban warlords doesn't fit into anyone's budget that I know of, how about you?

Talk about neurotic, South Node behavior!

Meanwhile, the good people or public (Moon) will be 'eclipsed' as the summit begins on Friday with overpowering Pluto's extreme wealth, surveillance, and manipulation standing by in 6th house of Police and Military Forces. (Protesters are already being arrested, and it's being reported that the hotel's workers have gone on strike today. And here's a btw reminder - another title Pluto carries is: the pope.)

So given America's natal Pluto on DESC, plutonian strength girds the power elite and their minions-in-attendance as they make high handed plans for - or, I should say, against - the world's future.


*A YOD, which resembles a squished triangle, is formed by a base of two or more planets sextile (60 degr) one another which 'point' to a third planet (or more) known as the apex planet/s; both the sextiled planets are quincunx, or inconjunct, the apex planet/s (165 degr.) In a YOD, apex Neptune signifies those who prefer their comfortable ivory towers to harsh, mundane realities - this way their high idealism can be successfully sustained against all common sense and dealing with the ultimate consequences of their actions doesn't interfere with their lives.

Greater structure and definition are needed by nebulous, often deceptive Neptune and this need may be supplying a basis for the 2010 summit's agenda. Neptune is a very creative apex planet in a YOD pattern, for the desired 'universal unity' (in their case, one-world-government) makes a potent, entrancing inspiration point for their totalitarian dreams and visions of Utopia which first requires chaos in order to rebuild a 'better' world.

Now some astrologers would not consider the above pattern as a YOD because one of the points is, well...a point (rather than a third planet.) Yet the midpoint picture detailed here is still of influence in Toronto symbolically, at least, since the ASC degree changes within minutes causing the YOD to dissipate. My point is that the precise timing which creates the YOD in Toronto is gleaned from the perfection of the June 26 Lunar Eclipse, Sun precisely opposing Moon...and world conditions are depressing and introverted indeed.

For as author, journalist, and social activist Upton Sinclair so fairly asked not so very long ago:

"Is it altogether a Utopian dream, that once in history a ruling class might be willing to make the great surrender, and permit social change to come about without hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life?"


Altogether, it is too much to ask. Pluto does not share.

Well, I'll be keeping an eye on Toronto this weekend...June 26 and's growing late in the game so I hope you will, too. jc

Gemini New Moon conj US natal Mars June 12, 2010

Yes, I'd like to compose an article on the June 12, 2010 New Moon 21Gem which conjoins America's natal Mars, planet of war, strife, quarrels, and action but tomorrow's Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus at Aries Point has fortunately rescued you from the trial!

How can this be through time and space, from me not to you? What beneficial interference could occasion such welcomed relief for a hapless, innocent blog reader such as yourself?

Well, you may wish to thank my friend Depali Desai whose 'New Moon in Gemini' article on her excellent Celestial Space Astrology blog is just in time for June 12 and for nurturing the new seeds of intention you'll hope take root then!

Dipali also writes of the writer's planet, Mercury, and the wing'd messenger's traversal of its own sign, Gemini, so check in with Celestial Space Astrology for more details.

Yet this is a Mundane Astrology blog of sorts attempting to take quick peeks under the hood of Politics so perhaps it would be remiss not to type the transiting midpoint picture potentials for you of June 12's New Moon conjunct the testy, contentious, testosterone-pumped Mars of the USA...

New Moon = n Mars: an urge to bring ideals and wishes to fruition; the realization of joint ventures; energy helping or upsetting relationships; anger; addressing problems; servile awareness in partnership; the drive for fulfillment; becoming more self-reliant; pushing others toward quicker progress (BP? jc); imposing one's will on others; a focus on strength; marriage. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey.)

A note on that last one which relates to the US (Mars) yet dovetails with the Jan 15, 2010 Solar Eclipse 25Cap01 which suggests an important *ceremony or wedding occurring, perhaps a royal one - Princess Victoria of Sweden will be enjoying her royal wedding bash before the end of June - just before the end of the current Eclipse season (with the next Solar Eclipse occurring July 11, 2010 @ 19Can24.)

Thankfully, Sweden's royal wedding will not be held on June 26 when a marriage would have to begin under the rays of a Lunar Eclipse conjunct Pluto which doesn't sound auspicious for beginning new lives together to me.

Fortunately, the royal ceremony is set for June 19, the day when, for about 6 hours, Jupiter and Uranus will make a lovely parallel to one another, a kind of 'sealing the deal' of their Great Conjunction of June 8, 2010 at a World Point 00Ari18!

Plus, maybe the Lunar Eclipse chart set for their wedding's location makes beneficial aspects to the horoscopes of the bride and groom. And yet, as with all Lunar Eclipses, dark secrets are yet to be revealed!


* The Solar Eclipse of Jan 15, 2010 in Capricorn is titled Ceremony Fit for a King by Celeste Teal in her book, Eclipses; Princess Victoria's royal wedding makes Teal's prediction spot-on. jc

Lunar Eclipse conjunct Pluto June 26, 2010

Chart shown: Lunar Eclipse 4Cap46 conjunct Pluto Rx; 6th house of Employment, Service - including police and military, civil servants, rehab centers, health in general, our daily rounds and schedules; Hour of Jupiter 2Ari14 in his own 9th house with Uranus 00Ari33 at Aries Point of World Manifestation.

ASC 26Can01 with US natal Mercury Rx rising and our natal Pluto on Descendant (propaganda and control of info and communications); Sun 4Can46 with Mercury 2Can16 are in 12th house of Secret Deals, Hospitals, Karma, and Self-Undoing, and are nestled among America's natal planets in Cancer: Venus, Jupiter, and Sun; Pluto opposes America's Cancerian planets (not our Mercury yet) and the triple transit is in full force here.

More Foreign Raids on the US Treasury?

Click chart image to enlarge and read a few of my notes such as the list of planets involved in multi-T-Squares and a dissociate Grand Cross as well, thanks to Saturn hanging back in Mutable Virgo. Since I've mentioned most of the midpoint pictures formed by these mainly Cardinal configurations, I'll not repeat myself here.

Mars 10Vir24 conjunct 3rd cusp makes the only applying aspect to chart-ruler Moon (and thus the Eclipse): a helpful trine (5A37.) Yet activist Mars feels quite stymied in staid Virgo, sign of the dedicated worker, health, practical nurturing, and criticism. (Read more on Mars below.)

Fraudulent Neptune (in 8th house of Debt, Credit, and Big Banking) and status quo, restrictive Saturn remain inconjunct indicating continued staunching of credit flow and financial untruths affecting hapless victims - and the communications (3rd house) which influence them and cause intense emotions.

In 11th house lurk asteroids Pan conjunct the Venus/Uranus midpoint = 'erratic or extravagant with money', and MIDAS conjunct the Venus/Jupiter midpoint = over-indulgence with money affects prosperity and growth; foreign raids on the treasury; religious interference in the justice system.

However, there are two midpoint pictures particular to this LE, one perhaps more problematic than the other for the president; the first involves an opposition between Mercury and Pluto with its propaganda implications - plus, as mentioned above, America's natal Mercury/Pluto opposition is emphasized on the ASC/DESC axis with its surveillance/spying vibe; Jupiter adds religion, philosophy, ideals, broadcasting, and Big Money to the plutonian devils' bargain:

Mercury/Pluto = Jupiter: diplomacy; the art of persuasion; public recognition; the need and power to control info and materials released to the public (or perhaps not controlled in the light of this Full Moon! - jc); increased public relations maneuvers (Nov 2010 elections? scandals? jc); gaining a good reputation; great successes; crooks and swindlers. (Jolly Jupiter isn't always honest!)

Saturn/Mc = Sun: needing to fight hard and having the capacity to do so; becoming the master of your own fate in spite of early obstacles; driven to perform for praise; lack of courage; insufficient powers of defence with regard to other people; emotional depression; illness.

Saturn/Mc = Moon: subordinating oneself to the needs of family; strict family values or ethics; impressionability; depression; renunciation of one thing and the adoption of another to better fulfil needs; an attack on private emotions.

(All mdpt pics from: Tyl, Ebertin, and Munkasey; any, all, or none may apply and they may be triggered at a later date by transits and/or progressions.)

With the Lunar Eclipse's Sun @ 4Can46, we know the US has a birthday coming in July and the usual question of 'what to get' is second on many an astrologer's lists of quandaries; first is which natal chart to use for US Solar Returns: charts with Gemini, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, or Sagittarius rising? Well, they're all in use and each has much to recommend it.

For 9/11/01 studies, I believe Sag rising or Gemini rising work best but you may disagree. And using a Scorpio rising chart can always be used for Scorpionic matters such as Big Finance, Spying Agencies, and such...even for 9/11 with its questions of betrayal from the US government against we-the-people. Yet a Gemini ASC gives freedom-loving Uranus rising indicating an 'ability to cope with the unexpected' so naturally I like that chart, too!

Well, for today's post we're considering only the Lunar Eclipse of June 26, 2010 @ 7:30:18 am edt, the White House, DC; chart-ruler Moon is ruled by Saturn which emphasizes the Can/Cap axis of Security, Ambition, and Homeland. Controlling, coping Pluto has eclipsed the Moon (though I'm glad the chart clocks in with Moon already moved beyond powerful, manipulating Pluto, 0S41) and an infection may develop which affects the health of the people.

Now Celeste Teal, in her masterful book Eclipses, has titled this LE 'A Rough Patch' and you can see what she means. A cadent house indicates stages of preparation, Pluto shows awesome power and obsessions with it, and the presence of the North Node here brings an influx of new elements and energies into daily life, plus, a need for adaptability in matters of the 6th house.

NN Lunar Eclipses are usually more positive than SN ones; we may expect new developments and revelations of previously hidden things with any Lunar Eclipse yet the NN association bwo Jupiter here (SN being Saturnian and indicating a release of energy) is more positive. Yes, something often comes out into the open with Lunar Eclipses, and to tell you the truth, financial affairs in general and possibly more econo-scandals are highlighted here (a 1st house comfort-loving Venu$ in showy Leo quindecile sneaky Neptune in 8th house: obsessions, veilings, and difficulties with finances. Neptune/Chiron continue to represent the ongoing BP oil disaster of April 20, 2010; Neptune to US natal Moon, the foreclosures and other dissolutions for we-the-people.)

Sorry to say that US military actions cannot be ruled out and they may be on the US plutonian menu of aggressive imperialism for the rest of 2010 (shhh! Sun the leader and Mercury the planner are consulting together behind the door of the secretive 12th house; more bad karma on the way.)

Yes, US troops may come home (hurrah! perhaps part of the June 26 influx of energy is our martian soldiers returning home) while other troops are deployed anew, for after all, President Obama did make one promise during the 2008 campaign which he has kept scrupulously on behalf of the NWO: military escalation in Afghanistan.

So to my dissenting American gaze, it seems that the haunting specter of the exportation of power clings round the edges of the June 26 Lunar Eclipse chart set for Washington DC, and there could be delays or obstructions to transportation, trade, and/or communications. Plus, I do hope the power grid isn't affected unduly...power (Pluto) grid (Saturn-ruled Cap.)

Yes, Summer 2010 will continue our 'season of discontent' especially with disruptive Uranus now re-active on the world stage (Uranus = AP historically indicates scientific breakthroughs though 'radical global changes' are certainly possible as well.)

Actually, research on secret projects may be what comes to light under the Moon's bright rays especially with circuit-breaker Uranus holding at Aries Point in 9th house...perhaps 'foreign scientists'?

A spotlight on the 6th house reflects the folly of indiscretions which can bring danger as clandestine projects are revealed - or perhaps it's the danger which causes them to be uncovered in the first place...hopefully, Pluto's plutonium isn't implicated.

So as usual with Full Moons, relationships are strongly emphasized and balances must be found at this, the culmination/fulfillment phase of seeds planted at the previous New Moon two weeks prior, a New Moon in Gemini conjoining US natal Mars, planet of war, soldiering, violence, riots, and protests.

Yet astrological Mars also rules energy, initiative, motivation, and new starts - and Mars here @ 10Vir24 - conjunct 3rd cusp but just barely entered into 2nd house of Earning Ability, Valuations, and Self-Worth - makes the only applying aspect to the Moon...a helpful trine (5A37), as noted above. Mars in 2nd house usually means 'the more you work, the more money you make' yet finding salaried employment would be integral to that interpretation, wouldn't it?

So this particular LE chart indicates 'obsessions' (Pluto) as noted, along with 'conspiracies among men' yet I'm banking on its 'North Node influx of new energy' with a potential for Jupiterian luck to pull us through a difficult summer; however, large storms should continue to be expected in residential areas which will especially threaten the Gulf Coast region all the more thanks to BP, Halliburton, and Transocean and their over-confident and environmentally dangerous oil drilling.

A Political Peep-Eye Afoot?

Lunar Eclipses tend to work on inner levels yet the presence of the NN here brings its effects onto outer levels with contacts and encounters in the physical realm. Yet it will be our attitudes (Moon) which carry us along for ill or good because where our thoughts go, so go our emotions. (I think Dr. Laura Schlesinger said this, among others. Scripture says it another way, that As a man thinks, so he becomes. Political manipulators and propagandists know this truism very well and use it regularly as they assault us on the level of the senses.)

My advice remains: If you find yourself being taught to hate a particular politician and all they stand for, you might consider the possibility that you're being used a tool for other peoples' purposes! And Uranus to AP says, It's time to Awaken, my Brothers!

So will the second half of 2010 bring new fiascoes or political scandals that give conspiracy-minded folk such as myself new focuses for their rants and rages? Does George Bush love neocon kool-aid?

Yes, this LE will uncover stuff which some will wish were left buried. Even interesting skeletons, buried treasures, relics, and fossils may be found with ancient Pluto's influence so near the astrological Moon which rules, among other things, the past.

Perhaps a secret relating to power elite Pluto will come to light! He hates that which means, I love it.

And with the Goal/Aspiration Point of the LE chart @ '11 Aries' (Mc), we may know the identity of the primary focus of many of our angry citizens based on the Sabian Symbol that describes him for it's the ID of the One who has the most opportunity to 'use' a LE infused with Pluto's secret powers; Sun (the leader) is in 12th house of secret meetings, deals, karma, and self-undoing; imho, more war would be a generator of 'self-undoing' as it has already shown itself to be:

'11Ari' = "The President of the Country"...or, "The Ruler of a Nation"...

'Keynote: The power resulting from the formal integration of the collective desire for order.' (Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala.)

Oh dear, this actually sums up June 26's Cancer Eclipse conj Pluto quite well! The people (Moon) desire order and security (Can/Cap; Pluto in Cap) above all - even at the expense of our jobs, financial health, and the world's peace.

Mr. Rudhyar continues that '11Ari' indicates: 'CENTRALIZATION OF POWER' - which describes the anti-constitutional agenda in process of being implemented in America for several decades now. How are you liking its plutonian results so far?


Just typing aloud: wonder where our returning soldiers will find jobs? Once they (hopefully) recuperate, that is. Wouldn't it be great if some formed worker-managed and owned manufacturing plants or other socially helpful enterprises which we could all support? And I know we would! jc

Well, how about another perspective on the Lunar Eclipse of June 26, 2010? I'm about to check out the Lunar Eclipse article at Funk Astrology with the chart set for London, if you care to join me!
