The December 21, 2010 Eclipse and U.S. Saturn Return

I just read that the current Real Estate in my area hasn't suffered such a serious downturn since the Great Depression. For one, that's not such a big deal because it was so damn inflated. Anyone who bought a house here in 2006 was either just way too rich or too damn foolish.

So, at any rate, that news depressed me and I thought I would rotate the wheel on my Solar Fire towards the Grand Trines coming up in 2013 to cheer myself up. Didn't make it that far because I got stuck on the upcoming Eclipse Set. We're in the middle of an Eclipse Set right now. The entire Gulf of Mexico is in major catastrophe due to the Deepwater Horizon spill.

There will be a Total Lunar Eclipse on Dec. 21, 2010 followed by a Partial Lunar Eclipse on Jan. 4, 2011. The Lunar Eclipse looks really prominent in a number of ways. I actually didn't really look at the Solar Eclipse.

Here's what I saw:

From Wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_2010_lunar_eclipse)
We haven't had a Total Lunar Eclipse for 3 years. Last one was on Feb. 21, 2008
This one will be followed by 2 more: June 15, 2011 and Dec. 10, 2011

That's a lot of lunacy, especially for Mutable Signs (the rest of us are spent already).

This Eclipse belongs to Saros Cycle 125 which is a series of Eclipses that began with June 17, 1704 and ended with Mar. 19, 2155. The Saros Cycles are sets of Eclipses separated by slightly more than 18 years. The Cycle begins with a short little Eclipse and gradually builds into a long Eclipse and then the Eclipses shrink in length of time until the set finishes. The longest Eclipse in Saros 125 was on Aug. 22, 1812. This is significant for the United States and Britain because we had a major battle in that year. France, led by Napolean, also had a War against Russia. This year, we have the World Cup.

This Eclipse is very significant for the United States because it happens on our Saturn Return. The U.S. Saturn is 15 Libra. This Lunar Eclipse is at 17 Libra. Saturn is exhalted in Libra. Saturn rules Government and Presidents. If one uses the Sibley Chart with the Sadge Rising this will occur in the 11th House. In the July 4 chart Saturn is squaring the Sun 14 Cancer and opposing Chiron.

The Eclipse Chart stands out because it occurs on the last degrees of Gemini-Sagittarius which are the Aries Points. On Wikipedia (or maybe it was the NASA site) this Eclipse stands out because it will be visible to so much of the World. Maybe that means that the World will begin to work as a cohesive blob. Maybe this will be when the Sun decides to zap our electrical grid (that's my idea of humor). At any rate, I wonder if this isn't the December 21 date that the Mayans were referring to because it looks more like what I would expect the 2012 chart to look like.

Another similarity between the U.S. Chart and this Eclipse Chart is coming from the Moon. The Moon in the Sibley Chart is at 28 Aquarius. The Moon in December's Total Lunar Eclipse Chart will be 30 Gemini. That's close to being a trine.

The Moon in the Eclipse Chart stands out because it is lead planet of a Bucket Shape. It is out of bounds at 23 degrees 44' and it is fast 13 degrees 43 minutes. The natal U.S. Chart Moon is also out of bounds and fast (assuming that Sibley was right).

Mars in the Eclipse Chart is also out of bounds 23 degrees 59 minutes. It is at 11 Capricorn and squaring Capricorn's ruler which, in my opinion, is a very intelligent place for Mars to be. Except that Rob Hand or somebody else called this aspect "Driving with the brakes on."

So, it's important to notice that Pluto will be in conjunction with the North Node in Capricorn (5 and 3 degrees respectively). Pluto rules both the Eclipse charts this Winter. That might not look good on paper.

That's right on my natal Saturn. You want some entertainment, try coming with me to a petting zoo to see how many of those cute little furries will try to bite my head off.

Oh, and Venus will be in Scorpio in the 1st House unaspected by major aspect to other planets. Good time for incorporating prostitution. Jupiter-Uranus and Lilith will all be in conjunction with the U.S. Moon so this may be our only hope to get out of the recession. Good for organized crime. Not so hot for public education.
