The new year 2019 started with a solar eclipse on 06.01. It belonged to a series of Saros Cycle active throughout 2000.
This is followed by the total lunar eclipse from 20/21st January, visible from Europe. This eclipse belongs to Saroscycle Lunar 134 and is part of multiple series of Eclipses that led through the year 2001, the year that represented a turning point in the lifestyle of the world in the aftermath of 9/11, and led to several wars. The consequences of this event and the wars that followed still have a negative impact and grip on humanity as a whole, the way we deal politically internationally with each other, how we see religions and certain religious practices, and impacted the quality of life on Earth.
In this article I aim to give an overview of the energies that repeat themselves cyclically and are part of an underlying theme on the collective mindset in 2019. I also aim to show what the original energies were about and what potential they carry in their highest purpose. (read more…
The eclipse series Saros Lunar 134 started in 1550. All eclipses of this series happen with the moon on the ascending node, the sun on the descending node.
In general, the moon is usually referred to as mind and emotions while the sun is a symbol for one’ own life force and consciousness. On the global level, the moon is said to be a symbol for the people of a nation, so the population or citizens, while the sun symbolizes the ruler, the king of a country.
times, a solar eclipse was a symbol for the death of a king, a change in reign
and ruler in the country where it was visible. Eclipses in their visibility changed
events and outcomes e.g. on the battlefields.
Solar eclipses have a stronger effect on governments, lunar eclipses more on the area, how the population perceives and how they are doing. On a broader concept therefore one may say, Solar Eclipses are attributed to the king, lunar eclipses to the people, the wellbeing of a nation.
The energies of the first of this eclipse series was – seen in Sabian Symbols – as following:
A pugilist enters the ring
The release and glorification of social aggressiveness.
Keyword: Overwhelming power.
A Sunday crowd enjoying the beach
A revivifying contact with the motherforce of nature and of social togethernes
Keyword: oceanic feeling
On the side of the moon, we see the image of a boxer. symbolization of the glorification of aggressiveness. The boxer enters the sparring is gloriously and socially recognized, even admired for releasing aggression in a certain way. Usually the sparring is in the light, the boxer known by name, while the people watching it are namelessly gathering around the area of the sparring.
The symbol of the sun shows a crowd of people enjoying the beach. The experience the powerful elements of nature in a social environment, a dive into oceanic feelings of togetherness together with people partly known, mostly unknown to onself. The one on the “stage” though is nature in its force. The ocean as place of birth of all life on Earth.
It is the contrast between artificially created display, controlled release of human aggressivity and the collective emotion and recharging of life force through the power and force of the elements of Earth. In both cases, the single participant of the crowd is almost nameless and unimportant as individual. In both cases there is participation in an event. But in one case it’s about an ego-force, trained, channeled and then showcased in a social accepted way, in the other cosmic and planetary forces are always at work in their own rhythm and cycle, and are just consciously experienced together.
The Lunareclipse of this series in 2001 showed as symbolism:
A hidden choir is singing during a religious service
The fulfillment of the individual’s creative function through his participation in a group performance consecrated in a transcendent realization of unity.
Keyword: Plenitude of being.
Venetian Gondoliers giving a serenade
Happiness as an overtone of social integration and conformity to custom
The participants in the boxing match, not visible in the limelight, are now giving way to a hidden choir singing for a religious ceremony. The ocean and the oceanic experience of the force of nature gives way to the evening scene in Venice, songs are also sung, but in the second symbol but not in the background of a ritual religious ceremony but a more cultural hymn, a song sung for the inhabitants or the passengers in the boat and the citizens and tourists of a town.
Both scenes are human-made moments, they include sound. And a celebration of something in a larger context and crowd.
this energy and to how 2001 was experienced one may see the rift in the energy
possible and the one that was actually lived.
The hidden choir may be a symbol for plans in the background, the
religious ceremony though showed as a war against Islamic nations. The cultural
values of the West was targeted and challenged from the East, seemingly
attacked by motives of religion and lifestyle.
The gondoliers were chanting songs of war, NATO countries working together under Article V as USA called the allies to help. As a result, there were declarations of war on terror that were in fact wars on nations populations mainly belonging to the religious and cultural majority of the aggressors.
The symbols speak of festivities and celebrations, of planned and trained songs performed as a group in the background, fellowship in small and large ceremonial, religious and cultural actions, it showed festivities, livelihood, celebrations of joy and plenitude. But the year 2001 brought the opposite – the international community was culturally and religiously divided into axes of evil on one side, and the good allies on the other. The overtones of songs, the sounds of joy, were silenced in collectively displayed aggressiveness, individual acts against cities and states – retaliation war against „marked“ opponents and countries that were not involved at all or not that deep as blamed.
With that in mind, a look on the January 20/21 energy:
The Sabian Symbols for the eclipse from 20/21st January are:
Blood rushes to a man’s head as his vital energies are mobilized under the spur of ambition.
An Eruption of bio-psychic energies into the ego-controlled field of consciousness.
An old adobe mission in California.
The power inherent in all great human works to endure far beyond the workers’ life span.
Keyword: The concretization of an ideal.
symbolism now shows the energy of a man whose blood is rushing in the head, because
ambitions and ego energies take possession of him. His energies erupt
uncontrollably into the collective, setting things on fire in a blaze.
The Sun’s symbol displays an old adobe building, an old mission in California, and the power that lies in all the work and cooperation of people who want to build something of value that lasts beyond their own lives. Ideals that want to be realized.
What is really interesting in this symbolism is to compare them with everyday events. One can not help but to compare it to public events and speeches given by “Trump”. Mr. Trump, a man that usually looks is quite red-faced in public, as if the blood has rushed to his head. But quite often also tempered, and therefore setting things on fire in erupting ambition, mostly ego-driven.
I therefore like to point out, that it is also important to see, on what date during the year the Lunareclipse is occurring. American Presidents are inaugurated (since the 1930’s) on January 20, when the sun reaches 1 Aquarius.
The symbol for 1 Aquarius is:
An adobe mission in California
The power inherent in all great human works to endure for beyond the workers’ life span.
Keyword: The concretization of an ideal
The American presidency since the 20th century is therefore rooted in the energy , which the eclipse is activating or overshadowing. The American Dream, democracy and republic, is the dream of more than one life span. The nation as a whole is the concretization of an ideal. And now it is faced by a man whose blood rushes into his head due to ambition.
Just as in 2001 where the symbol of the religious choir distorted into wars between religions and worldviews, so may the image of a over-energized ambitious man on one hand be a threat for the building of ideas. The world faces on the political arena a person like Trump, currently shutting the democratic processes down to fund a wall, a building that may endure its own lifetime while violate the ideals that are vested in the presidency itself. Trump may be eclipsing the values of America, so to speak.
emphasizes a rush of energy not well handled, uncontrolled and therefore
harming, setting ablaze while bursting into the outer, while on the other hand an image of old ideals exist, in a quite,
almost resting mode. Almost as a tradition remembered, not necessarily a
building inhabited. The old, clay-built mission indicates an enduring act, a
house of collective significance, in time and space. It’s not about only a
house, but a mission. A mission served as a building to spread a religion in an
area unknown of it, whether this spreading was peaceful or violent, welcome or
Yet as the mission building survived the times, it was successful.
In a strange way therefore the symbol of the adobe mission in California shows also the energy of the nearby Mexican boarder and lifestyle, the connection to South America, and how the American way of life and the South Americas intermixed and blended their ways of living.
of the previous lunar eclipses were European as well as global in nature. Churches,
choirs can exist almost everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. Oceans and
beaches exist all over the planet. Gondoliers exists only in Venice, i.e. in a
spatially and culturally limited area, where people have reconciled with the forces
of the nearby ocean flooding their city. The forces of nature are taking back
their ground, while gondoliers sing their songs in the life that slowly adapts
The sounds of a choir takes place in a ceremony, the flooding of the city by the ocean takes place slowly over centuries, adaptable for the inhabitants so far.
In the Arc
and overview to the point of origin – we see a symbol that captures the display
of aggressiveness – the sparring boxer, who trains to show off in an artificial
fight that serves to discharge mass emotion. It is replaced by a single human
being where the energy is rushing to the head through ambition and situations
not well handled.
There is no release of energy in a formalized way, but the explosion of energy in an uncontrolled manner.
The images of togetherness, of oceanic feelings by experiencing the elements and the forces of nature disappeared. It is a building. Quiet. Still. Contrasting the constant movements of nature, waves on a shore.
This solar eclipse therefore may show the danger of forces not handled well, of lost contacts to nature and society, and overflowing ambitions, egos crying for power, not able to handle them.
Old venerable traditions and buildings are a target of this energy outburst, quiet energies that existed reliably as an offer may now be endangered by energy outbreaks.
As mentioned before, eclipses always are a time of changing, and in the traditional way to see them, a solar eclipse was seen as death(replacement) of the king/ruler of a country. As his eclipse series is incredible deeply woven in events with 2001 and therefore with America, and as the eclipse from January 20/21 is the inauguration date of all presidents (since 1930’s) I predict that Trump will be overthrown or needs to resign during this year, not necessarily in January, but most likely during the solar eclipses in the summer (July 2019).
If Trump is not leaving the presidency, the energy of this eclipse and the eclipse series indicate that the presidency itself, and the way the energies are handled, twill undermine the ideals of the founding fathers, of democracy and republic, and therefore the Presidency itself will undergo vast changes. Either Trump is replaced, or the presidency and democracy of America is altered beyond recognition.
But more on that in the article to come…..
advice for the current eclipse indicates to be self-confident, self-critical, aware
and mindful of both your own energies and the collective issues. Balancing the
forces that want to rush in the head with ambition.
It is of similar importance to be aware of the rifts in society that emerged after 9/11 through naming and blaming of opponents instead of a togetherness as a human family, impressed by nature in an oceanic feeling of its forces.
Blessings to you and good luck in case you like to observe the lunar eclipse
May the stars shine upon you, and may your own inner star show you the way.
