A Few Predictions that do not require astrology (2017 et seq, Presidential Politics)

[Originally posted 5:31 AM CST November 8, 2016; minor edits on Feb 10th 2017]

3  Election Predictions

No Astrology Needed

Before we elect a new President here in the United States, facing the choice between Donald Trump (and his family, hereafter “Trump” as is popular) and Hillary Clinton (who is a package with Bill Clinton, the impeached former President, and their daughter), I would like to make a few predictions without astrology (and a bit of one with astrology).

  1.  Whoever is elected will face impeachment, though different reasons apply.If Hillary is elected, the same kind of conduct that has characterized the Clintons in the White House before (email scandals, Bill’s sexual predation, etc.) will continue and impeachment proceedings will be launched.If Donald is elected, his various comments (such as the “locker room talk”) and past actions (such as the Trump Casino boondoggle) will form the basis of investigations and, again, impeachment proceedings will begin.Whether these impeachment proceedings will happen in 2017 or 2019 requires further analysis.
  2. Obama inherited a financial mess from George Bush consequent to the unnecessary war in Iraq (probably to help make the cronies of the Bush family wealthy but excused by the events of 9/11, sort of, as we went hunting for “weapons of mass destruction”), and Obama’s continued incompetence has NOT healed the economy despite all the rhetoric he is pushing.A particularly bad “crash” is facing us after a dishwater tepid “recovery” and whoever comes into office will be facing that financial crisis.  But, to some degree, a bit of a coverup will be done to give Obama a chance to save face.
  3. In order to cure #2, the incumbent will have little choice but to pursue a “hot” war (tanks and soldiers and battlefields, and as opposed to a “cold” war using spies and diplomacy).This will probably be a middle east war, will probably involve ISIS or some similar entity, and will probably have a precipitating event similar to 9/11 (and “intelligence failures” will be covered up again, just like what happened years ago with Pearl Harbor).

I think any sufficiently astute observer of 20th Century history, and early 21st Century history, can easily piece together what I am saying here.

A Wee Bit of Astrology Needed

[If you have not read our August 2015 analysis of the election, you might want to do so.]

Now the part that requires a bit more analysis, and I tend to rely on astrology here:

If Trump is elected, we will move into a “hot war.”  But if the Clintons go back in (and, as of this writing, the indicators are that the Clinton branch of the Bush-Clinton machinery is likely to be back in the White House), then we will go into a “*HOT* war.”  This war might be the first one to involve nukes since World War II.

(Might it be “Armageddon”?  Let’s hope not!)

Mars and Pluto

Why?  What astrology supports a “hot war” regardless of which one is elected?  The answer is that *BOTH* of them have Mars (War) in Leo (Presidents and Kings) AND Pluto (Annihilation, Nukes, Spies, Assassinations) in Leo (Presidents and Kings).

However, Hillary has these CONJUNCT (highly amplified and focused) whereas Donald merely has them in the same sector (bad enough!).  This deserves a separate, detailed article later, but election day is at hand (and the time is not  available to do this kind of detailed analysis).

In either case, the entry of Mars into Aquarius (opposing, ultimately, both the Mars and Pluto of BOTH candidates) marks the coming of the event that precipitates the war.

Strange Bedfellows

One more prediction, part astrology (based on Mars/Pluto) and part not: do not be surprised at all for the one who is NOT the incumbent to become a supporter of the one who IS the incumbent, particularly in this matter of the “hot war.”  Both have Mars/Pluto in Leo, and politics does make strange bedfellows.

Post Script:  (a rant)

Regarding “Armageddon”: I am not a Bible-thumper, but the Christian Bible does have some valid points from a metaphysical perspective, or at least that is my opinion.  As is true for many of us in “The South” (of the United States), I am from a Christian heritage and respect those teachings as much as I can but I cannot ignore certain scientific challenges (example: the idea of a “literal” virgin birth) and historical ideas that have long been concealed but is now coming to light.


What might those historical ideas be?  I think that Zeitgeist the Movie has some valid points.   (I am referring to the roughly the first thirty minutes of the movie, specifically but NOT necessarily the later parts of the movie.  (As always, you will have to decide for yourself.))  Let’s face it, astrology is woven all through the original Christian mythos, and 2,000 years of attempting to purge it has simply failed, as censorship inevitably does.

Persecution of Prometheus

What really irritates me the most about the Christian ideology is the conversion of Prometheus, a hero in the Greek mythology who brought the gift of fire (and light and enlightenment and the source of the “Olympic Torch”) to the humans from the Olympian gods into the “fallen angel” named “Lucifer” and an obvious villain in the Christian story.

Frankly, that stinks!  SHAME on whoever did that!  Prometheus is the ancient emblem of our ability to innovate and create art and technology.  But I suppose it is precedent for our collective tendency to sometimes villify people (or ideals) who are truly heroes!

Whoever did that nasty deed was the enemy of independent people who choose to think for themselves, outside the guidelines of the thought police.

Temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone

Do you like Lucifer the Television Show?  I do!  He makes great points: his power stems, almost completely, from his ability to tempt.  Were it not for temptation, he would have no power.  But, then again, neither would any of the advertising on lamestream media.

But, let us be clear: temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone.  In the crucible of the misery that results from our own bad choices, temptation leads us down a road that transforms us either by our death (literally! as in from alcohol or drug overdoses) or that metaphorically “kills” the old self leaving someone new, as was true with Saul / Paul.

Being a “message bearer” is a dangerous job.  The Titans rejected Prometheus after he liberated Zeus (Jupiter, and higher order thought) from Kronos (Saturn, and the bonds and the exoskeleton of “how we have always done things”).  He was welcomed by Zeus into Olympus and did well there until he gave fire (light, reasoning, insight) to the humans.  Then he was kicked out of Olympus.

But, we humans had to commit the same error as the Gods.  As part of the price of learning to reason and have insight, Prometheus exposed the power of Temptation to humans, so we showed our collective gratitude by renaming Prometheus into Lucifer and sending him to Hell (also known as “casting him into the darkness”).

If Prometheus could speak directly to the typical “Christians” and the Christian Power Structure, he would probably say this: “O why dost though persecute me so?”

I bet they might answer thus: because it is just too tempting.

2012 Revisited: A Messy and Close Election

Edit: [late on 2016 November 08, near 6 PM CST]  “We also recommend that you read this analysis by Katie Turner over at Know Your Vibes Astrology.  It is a good analysis.  However, I would offer that I think, long term, that Hillary is by far the more dangerous of the two.  (It has to do with this issue of a “hot war” I wrote about earlier.  Only time will tell.  At an intuitive level, without any deep analysis, I tend to agree also with the others that, whoever goes in, we are almost certainly looking at a one term president, similar to the Jimmy Carter situation of the late 1970’s.)

Here is our analysis of the 2012 election.  It was also extremely close and extremely messy and difficult to predict.  But, we wrote these words:  “But, Obama has the Moon conjunct Mercury, a bit more favorable as far as aspects go.  We think he will win.”  This time we think Hillary will win.  But, again, it will be both close and messy.  And, we expect impeachment proceedings to be at least attempted if not completed.”

Neptune Conjunct South Node: Will They Live Long Enough to be Impeached?

Edit #2 November 8th [about 6:35 CST]:  Tara Greene has posted “You’ve never seen this, Neptune conjunct Pisces South Node.” So, what was going on in 1849?  This was.  More specifically, United States President Zachary Taylor took office on March 4, 1849.  “Taylor’s status as a national hero as a result of his victories in the Mexican-American War won him election to the White House despite his vague political beliefs.”  (Almost sounds like Donald Trump a bit, doesn’t it?)

But, more disturbing, is his death not even two years into the term: “Taylor died suddenly of a stomach-related illness in July 1850, so had little impact on the sectional divide that led to civil war a decade later.”  Sworn in in March of 1849 (Pisces) and dead by July of 1850 (Cancer).

Therefore, we modify our #1 impeachment prediction based on the astrological consideration of Neptune conjunct South Node: the impeachment proceedings will be attempted (or completed) given that the incumbent lives long enough for this to occur.  (And, based on what happened to the POTUS the LAST time we had the Neptune / South Node aspect, we are concerned regarding some kind of “repeat” could occur.  Maybe the big question is actually who will be Vice President?)

In Memory of Cainer

May 19, 2016 at 6:30 am | Posted in 2016, Astrology, BadDays, Diamonds, Events, FamousPeople, Hard Rectangle, Kite, NatalChartAnalysis, Patterns, Rosetta, Special Days, Square Key, Stretched Pentagrams | 2 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Some time over a decade ago, and before I started this blog, I discovered the work of Jonathon Cainer.  He was a standard “Sun sign” style newspaper astrologer in the UK, but he was also much more than that.  His daily entries had a remarkable quality to them that I describe as “philosophical.”  While others, myself included, would focus in on the details of what, say, a Sagittarius Moon / Gemini Sun type full moon had to say, Cainer would zoom out and speak in lyrical words of poetry about the bigger picture of such a turn of events.

He was, in a word, inspiring.

So, I was disappointed to discover this morning, May 19th, that he had passed away on May 2nd of this year, 2016.  No chance now of him reading that email that I kept thinking about sending him for years but then not sending because I wanted to remain anonymous.  No chance of somehow showing up in England and having a chance encounter where I might speak to him for a moment.  The windows are closed, and the best I can do is an analysis of his birth and death charts (based on available data) in his memory.

His birth chart is remarkable, having both a Stretched Pentagram and a Diamond in it.  These tend to be rather rare, and he had both of them.  We show the birth chart for the Stretched Pentagram first:

Cainer (Birth, Stretched Pentagram)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

It is the kind of chart, from the perspective of patterns, that is nothing short of amazing.  Here is the birth chart, again, with the Diamond highlighted:

Cainer (Birth, Diamond, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Much of the Diamond and Stretched Pentagram overlap.  The evening of Winter’s Solstice 2012 (aka “The End of the World as We Know It”) had a Diamond in it, and while 2012 came and went without the end of the world, we can say that this period of years, marked by the Uranus / Pluto squares (or, as Cainer called it: “the bell tolls seven times”) has been remarkable in changes and upheaval (“Arab Spring,” “Black Lives Matter,” the dominance of “smart phones” in our collective lives, the candidacy of Donald Trump for President, etc.)

Cainer had other patterns also.  He had a “Square Key” which is really two interlocked “Huber Learning Triangles.”  These tell us what his biography said: he worked through some rather intense “karma” to reach the point he did in life.  Life was not particularly easy for him in the beginning, and arguably it was probably fairly tough even after he had acquired fortune and fame.

Here is the chart filtered for the Square Key:

Cainer (Birth, Square Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Just in case that was not enough, he also had a “Double Yod Key” (DYK).  This tells us he was face with many tough decisions, the kind where you always look back and wonder “what if I had taken the other path”?  Filtered for DYK:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yod Key)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The DYK is hard to see because it is built into his other patterns.  But, if we filter for yods, we find three of them, and they are a bit more obvious:

Cainer (Birth, Double Yods)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

This is NOT an “easy” life.  It is spent worrying about “what if” I had done something else.  But Cainer was also born with the ability to accomplish much, and he did.

Cainer (Birth, Rosetta, Beginner)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Finally, we see a Rosetta in the birth chart.  We interpret this as “unstable alliances,” and from what we know this was true as well.  He moved back and forth between newspapers as shifting alliances pushed him to do just that.

If we filter for a Grand Cross we do not find one, but if we filter for T-Squares, then a slightly “loose” Grand Cross is obviously present (and a source of tremendous energy and the ability to “get things done”):

Cainer (Birth, T-Squares)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

A 5th Harmonic filter shows a triangular pattern (two quintiles and a biquintile) involving Mars, Pallas, and Venus:

Cainer (Birth, 5th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We might add here that his highly activated Neptune near Midheaven is an indicator of psychic abilities.  It can also indicate alcohol or drug problems or some kind of involvement (he did manage a bar at one point).  We suspect that he felt many people “pulling” on him.  (Neptune can be the savior / martyr complex as well.)

Seventh harmonic in the birth chart also contains a triangular pattern and is sufficiently activated to indicate, again, these “karmic” issues to work through:

Cainer (Birth, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Vesta/Hygeia, Neptune, and Sun compose the triangular pattern and indicate, again, both psychic abilities and physical illness as well.  (We suspect that long term / chronic illness may have plagued him but that he did not disclose it publicly.)

Now to the death chart.  A single pattern dominates: a hard rectangle!

Cainer (Death, Hard Rectangle)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

One other pattern is present in the death chart: a Kite (if you are willing to use North / South lunar nodes):

Cainer (Death, Kite)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note that the remainder of the kite is formed by Mercury and Pluto, both retrograde.  It is almost as if the cosmic said “OK we will give you a little more time to accomplish something, and then it is time to go.”  We may never know what that “something” was because it likely dealt with family and financial matters.  But he had received a reprieve of some kind from what was likely a “close call” of some kind earlier.  (Again, we will likely never be able to confirm or deny this.)  This kite also says that someone, somehow, greatly benefited from his death!  (What could that mean?)

Seventh Harmonic is also interesting:

Cainer (Death, 7th Harmonic)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Mars, Astraea, and Sun are involved in a triangular 7th harmonic pattern (made of a TriSeptile and two BiSeptiles).  We wonder if some kind of legal issues were about to emerge at the time of his death.  (Again, we would bet that this is something private despite 2 out of 3 planets being above ground.)

Finally, we present the bi-wheel without patterns or much analysis except to note that his second Saturn return was upon him (and the one for the author of this blog is not too far away either).  Saturn returns often “take us home,” and that is what happened for him.

Cainer BiWheel

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We have little more to add to this analysis, especially since we prefer our readers dig into it for themselves.  But, he was a giant in the field, and he will be missed.  And, as an aside, my own coming Saturn return leaves me rather “nervous.”

New Years 2016 (Thor’s Hammer Key)

New Years 2016 (Thor’s Hammer Key)

Let us first address, if not dispense with, a common topic: when does “New Years” occur?  The answer is it occurs once per time zone, with as many occurrences as there are time zones.  That begs the question: how many time zones are there?  A quick Bing search yields this answer: “There are 40 unique time zones based on UTC offset. However there are 198 time zones abbreviations around the world, including daylight saving time zones.”

Needless to say, we are not doing forty charts (we will leave that chore to others to address time zones that we do not), and we are certainly not doing 198 (though it might be an interesting topic to revisit, especially at shifts from Standard Time to Daylight Savings Time and back).  If you want to look up the offsets for your particular time zone, click here.  See, also: this list of time zone offsets.

So, the message is simple: EACH time zone has its own “personal” chart for the New Year, each with a similar (but slightly different) message.  This year, the chart for Melbourne / Tokyo and the Pacific Rim are is particularly outstanding, meaning we expect a strong calendar year for this region.  (Especially economic prosperity as long as people in the region remember to help those who are less fortunate than themselves.)

Please also keep in mind that this is only one of several “New Years.”  Another is the Chinese New Year in February (only a few days past a Cross Quarter Day this year!), and another is the Astrological New Year (Vernal Equinox).

We also recommend a few other things: (1) if you can, find last year’s “New Year’s Resolution” list and review it.  Did you actually accomplish anything?  What is different?  (2) Use a service to send this year’s list (and maybe old ones) to yourself sometime in late 2016 (We like late October because it provides enough to REALLY think about what you want for next year, 2017 in this case.  As far as these services go, we like FutureMe.org  We have no financial or other interest in that site, we just like it.

You may find it useful to make a list of what you DID accomplish.  And another useful exercise is to make a list of what you are grateful for.  Maybe you have it better than you realize.

If you review those notes in late October, you can do a “test run” on your “resolutions” in November.  This assumes you actually want to change or actually want to accomplish something.  If you are just spouting rhetoric, then no need to follow this.  After you fail in November (and you will, and the pain of Scorpio will teach you lessons), you can revise your unrealistic expectations for ANOTHER test in December.  Dump what does not work.  Then, after two “trial runs,” put it into gear in January.  If you fail again in January, then give up.  You are too unrealistic and disconnected from your true self to really understand what you really want and what you are really capable of doing.  Reality testing is important here, and Capricorn is very, very good at helping with that.

That said, if the time has passed for you to use our methods of testing and tuning resolutions for 2016, then make a resolution to send yourself a reminder (using a service like FutureMe) and accomplish that resolution immediately!

Speaking of last year’s resolutions and plans, here is the chart for New Years 2014/2015.  2015 had amazing potential if you believe what that chart had to offer.  How did you use it?  Did you make the year “count,” or did you waste your opportunities?

Some of you may think that we may sound like we are chastising you, but you need to keep this in mind: as an Astrologer we are Father Time’s (more precisely, Saturn’s or Kronos’) agent.  We are just doing our job!

Most of the charts for New Years 2015 / 2016 have a pattern present that we call a “Thor’s Hammer Key” (or a “God’s Fist Key,” if you prefer that terminology).  This pattern is composed of TWO interlinked Thor’s Hammer patterns and provide a HUGE amount of energy to “get things done” but also contains a danger of anger and violence.

Since Star Wars Episode VII is currently (December 2015) playing in theaters, we will borrow language from the Star Wars universe: “you will be tempted by the Dark Side of the force.”  Count on that this year.  Going into ANY situation unprepared for this possibility is a very, VERY bad idea this year.  2016, more than other years, is about being prepared, “getting things done,” and accomplishment.  (The numerologists, when they start talking about this, will confirm what I am saying: “2016” is a “9” year, and THAT is about COMPLETION.)

So, since it is a particularly large population center near the International Date Line and, therefore, one of the first New Year’s celebrations, we start with a chart set in Melbourne, Australia (AEST, UTC +10):

 2016-01-01 New Years Melbourne AUS (AEST) Thors Hammer Key[Click Image to Enlarge]

We see the Thor’s Hammer Key in play, Moon is approaching perfection of conjunction with Jupiter (a highly benevolent aspect), and Moon has not yet gone void of course (as it does in most other charts).  12th House is quite active, and people living in this region would benefit from addressing 12th house issues: helping those less fortunate than themselves, dealing with scams and frauds, drug and alcohol issues, poetry, lyrics, music, photography, and videography.  Maybe this is Melbourne’s year to become a film production center.  (Much of what we are saying applies to the “Pacific Rim” region, including Japan and Tokyo).  The remaining charts ALL contain a void of course moon EXCEPT Los Angeles, CA (where the moon is still “too early to tell”).

We present the chart for New Year’s in Moscow without comment except to note that we filtered for a T-Square that is also present.  (The same Thor’s Hammer Key pattern is in play, though.)

2016-01-01 Moscow (BAT) Thors Hammer Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Next, we present the chart for London:

2016-01-01 New Years London (UTC) Thors Hammer Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

New York City (EST):

2016-01-01 New Years New York City (EST) Thors Hammer Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Dallas (and Plano, our location as we publish these forecasts):

2016-01-01 New Years Dallas (CST) Thors Hammer Key

[Click Image to Enlarge]

And, finally, Los Angeles CA (PST):

2016-01-01 New Years Los Angeles (PST) Thors Hammer Key[Click Image to Enlarge]

One more time: “get things done” and bring CLOSURE to major projects this year.  You will have special windows of opportunity that you will NEVER see again, and 2017 marks the beginning of a very, very different period.

An exploration of November 8, 2016

First of all, we note that this is a Cross-Quarter Day.  Specifically, it is precisely the day (astrologically) of Samhain, celebrated as Halloween on October 31st or the Day of the Dead on November 1st but more precisely at 15 Scorpio (November 8th).

You might want to review our (much earlier) page “Politicians of Interest.”

[Edit: November 8, 2016: See, also A Few Predictions….]

Based on this source, we are using 7 AM Washington DC for this chart:

Election 2016 (Horary Format)

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The above chart is in “Horary” format (supporting what is sometimes called “traditional” analysis).  We note that the Moon is not yet void, but soon goes void for most of the remainder of the polling period.  (ANOTHER Moon v/c election!  Is someone in the government picking these times and dates on purpose for an astrological reason?)

For those who use asteroids:

The ONLY patterns we see in play in this chart are Huber Learning Triangles (specifically, HLT2’s):

Algol New Moon: Waco Biker Shootout

No charts, but an event local to Texas that is what we would expect with an Algol New Moon:

This is bad enough.  Let’s hope that we do not have similar events over the course of the Mercury Retrograde / storm.

We are using a reported time of the accident of “just after 9 PM” set to 9:02 EDT.  What stands out to us is the very nearly exact TriSeptile aspect of the Moon to its North Node: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 TriSeptiles

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Other characteristics are in play as well.  Pluto in 2nd house tells us that this is an event that likely involves a large amount of “other peoples money.”  (Insurance; lawsuits)  Saturn rising and in the 12th suggests difficulties.  But, again, the Moon TriSeptile its North Node (Fate or Karma) is most noteworthy.  We also note precise TriSeptiles between Neptune on one side and Jupiter / Juno (which are essentially conjunct in Leo) on the other side. Also interesting are the 5th order harmonics, and we see two patterns composed of those that resemble the “T-Square” that occurs with 4th order harmonics (squares and oppositions): Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 5th order harmonics

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We think that, curiously, this event made lead to certain important innovations in transportation safety.  One of these triangular patterns is part of a larger Quintile Kite in play that we have discussed elsewhere: Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Quintile Kite

[Click Image to Enlarge]

The Hard Rectangle discussed on the May 15th post, involving Mars Opposite Saturn, is already in play here, and we think a major contributor to this even.  (But, again, we think that the Lunar Triseptile was the precipitating aspect.)

Philly Train Wreck 2015-05-12 Hard Rectangle

[Click Image to Enlarge]

Note that this pattern includes (1) the rising Saturn / setting Mars and (2) the 2nd house Pluto / 8th house Hygeia.  As we have said before, we think this pattern is dangerous.

Lunar Eclipse of April 2015 (Full Moon of April 2015)

We present the chart for the Lunar Eclipse of April 2015 (Full Moon of April 2015).  You may also wish to read Early April Patterns, Late March Patterns, and about the Solar Eclipse and Vernal Equinox of March 2015.  We first filter the chart to highlight squares, oppositions, and T-Squares:

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 T-Squares

[Click Image to Enlarge]

We note enough squares and oppositions to “get things done.”  You will want to wrap up the growth oriented activities of the past two weeks by the time this Lunar Eclipse (and Full Moon culminates) so that you can shift your energies to “house cleaning” and discarding old projects that did not work after the culmination.  After the culmination of this FM, you will want to begin your “spring cleaning” if you have not already done so.  (In Australia, you would begin preparing for Winter.)

We also see a Grand Fire Trine, one of a series that has been happening and continues to happen.  While Grand Trines tend to bring stability, Grand Fire Trines tend to bring action, almost more like squares than trines.  This is a period when you can “get things done.”

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Grand Trine

[Click Image to Enlarge]

However, we do not find any kites, so this combination of patterns does not have the “luck” that we found in the Late March Patterns.  That window has closed, and this time we may have to “work” for our results a bit more.  But, we can still achieve good results if we are willing to work for them.

We also see another Focused Yod, quite similar to the variant seen in Early April Patterns (the day before):

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Focused Yod

[Click Image to Enlarge]

As with all yods, this means we face a decision.  In many ways, Focused Yods are about working to achieve a result.  We have to first decide what we want and abandon the alternative path.  Having done this, we work and we can achieve.  This pattern echoes the patterns previously discussed.

More than one Yod is in play, and that tells us that we may be facing a number of important decisions at this time:

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Yods

[Click Image to Enlarge]

While one of the Yods, the Focused Yod contained within the Lunar Eclipse, is very much a short term Yod requiring a quick decision and “tactical” in nature, the other has Saturn at its apex and Hygeia and Astrea on each leg.  We have discussed this before, and refer you to that discussion in Late March Patterns.

We also find Rosettas present in this chart; experience shows that these tend to be indicative of a time of unstable or temporary alliances.  (This could be people you meet in a class that you will not see again in this lifetime.)

Full Lunar Eclipse 2015-04-04 Rosettas

[Click Image to Enlarge]

None of the Eclipse is included in this set of Rosettas (arguably four of them overlapping), and it indicates a separate set of issues surrounding the key issues of the eclipse.

Finally, we see a Square Key.  These tend to signify a time of mixed energies, including quincunx, square and trine, that can lead to learning important lessons at this time.
