Today (5 Jan 2019) we will experience a solar eclipse in 15 degrees of Capricorn (tropical zodiac). I wondered how this eclipse might play out in the U.S.A. and cast the Gemini rising chart for America with the solar eclipse outside. Here it is:
The eclipse takes place in the 8th house of death of the U.S.A. Gemini rising chart. In addition, Saturn (ruler of the 8th) occupies the 8th and conjoins the eclipse. Saturn (a natural signifier of loss and death) also rules the 9th and 10th houses of this chart, thus also signifying travel, foreign interests and the government. Does this portend another terrorist attack by foreign operatives on American soil or in the air (9th house), or perhaps a major transportation accident?
Also troubling is the fact that the transiting lunar nodes conjoin the natal Mercury/Pluto opposition of this chart, with Mercury in the 3rd of local travel being the Ascendant ruler and thus signifying the lifeblood of the county. Pluto occupies the 9th of long-distance travel and foreigners.
In addition transiting Uranus (sudden disruptive events) in Aries (ruled by aggressive Mars) is making a station on the cusp of the 12th house (undoing, subversion, secret enemies, grief, loss). This stationary transiting Uranus is also square the Moon’s nodes, which usually indicates a period of crisis or a significant point of inflection. Essentially there is a major T-square involving transiting Uranus in the 12th square the natal Mercury/Pluto opposition as well as the transiting nodes.
All in all it looks like this solar eclipse portends an extremely stressful period for the U.S.A., which may be marked by some type of violence leading to death in the homeland.
