THE 2020 SUMMER SOLSTICE SOLAR ECLIPSE

BLOG
A total eclipse of the Sun on the longest day of the year? What effects could this have for the Earth and its inhabitants? We had one on the same degree, only 11 arc minutes off, 19 years ago. But the 2001 one was "total total" whereas this years' will be "annular total". The physical difference is that with the total eclipse, the Moon completely cover the Sun whereas with an annular eclipse, the Moon is at apogee (or close to it), at its furthest from the Earth, so that it appears smaller, with the consequence that the outer ring of the Sun remains visible throughout the duration of the eclipse. Total, annular and hybrid (a combination of total and annular) eclipses are stronger than partial ones. But is there…

March, have mercy

BLOG
In my 31 December 2019 blog, I predicted March to be the worst month of 2020 - especially its second part. What could this refer to? Much has already been said, but now that we have come to the middle of the month, let me reiterate and add some additional insights. In that blog, I mentioned the possibility of a next world recession starting already in February, and markets then really started to show strong bearish tendencies. In the first half of March, there was a Black Monday on 9 March when DJI plummeted 1800 points on opening, and a Black Thursday on 12 March when US stock markets suffered from the greatest single-day percentage fall since the 1987 stock market crash. What is to follow? Nothing good, I dare…

COVID-19 and possible future pandemics

BLOG
When I predicted a new epidemic for 2020 in my blog of 31 December 2019, I made a small mistake by expressing the opinion that it would break out in the fall. I should have known better - after all, it was me who have discovered that in parallels of latitude, the orb of influence is 20 minutes (of arc). Incidentally (but not so, of course), the disease broke out around New Year when the distance between Neptune and Pluto - the two planets that "caused" the onset of epidemic - was pretty much exactly 20 minutes! The first death was reported on 11 January and in less than three months, WHO declared a COVID-19 pandemic, with well over 110,000 confirmed cases and over 4000 dead. Now, what is to…

THE 2020 FORECAST

BLOG
The old year is slowly drifting away while the new one is about to be born. What will it bring us? One thing is sure - it's going to be a "wow" year, with many important changes and surprising events. There will be sudden leaps in human consciousnes, leading to important discoveries and new lifestyles, but also devastating weather and other natural events. Like every year, I hear you say. Sure, only in 2020, several of those events will be somehow "extra". Unusual. Unheard of. Unimaginable. I expect that at least one such event will keep the public interest for several years to come. My forecasts (or let's rather say expectations or strong possibilities) are mainly focused on the first part of the year, because a year of time is…

The Crisis

BLOG
In view of the Al-Assad's regime recent chemical attack on his own nation in the Syrian city of Duma, Donald Trump, the president of the United States, has been contemplating an attack on the Syrian forces. According to media reports, he first stated that the decision would be made in 12-24 hours, but this time passed and his recent announcement says that he might attack them "very soon, or not so soon at all". We astrologers can understand him - with Mercury retrograde, close to stationing, decision making is a difficult process. Especially for Geminis ;) Normally, the direct Mercury stations are a welcome change from the previous indecisiveness and hopelessness; projects start to move on, talks are renewed, plans are being made with fresh vigor and decisiveness. But this…

The 2018 Pluto Challenge

BLOG
This article is based on research and is an attempt to evaluate, from an astrological point or view, a certain planetary configuration that will dominate our astrological sky in 2018. It is written in such a way as to be (hopefully) understood by astrologers as well as laymen. All sensible astrology is based on observation. As above, so below is an age-old truth. Astrology has developed out of observation of the congurences between planetary positions and events on Earth. Although the basic techniques of mundane (non-personal, of-the-world) predictive astrology revolve around eclipses which are formed by particular alignements of the Sun, the Moon and the Earth, it has been observed that the further a planet, the stronger its influence upon general conditions on Earth. We'll therefore focus on Pluto which…

THE GREAT AMERICAN ECLIPSE IMMEDIATE EFFECTS

BLOG
The Great American Eclipse is over - except that it's not over. It has just begun. A couple of days ago, I have expressed concern (on my Slovenian FB page) over a possible storm hitting New Orleans in the days before the next Full Moon. As it turns out, the storm has been forming - ever since the eclipse - in the Gulf of Mexico where Harvey threatens to slam East Texas as the first major hurricane since 2005. Whew, that's BIG! It is, of course, astro-logical.  What moved me to mention New Orleans is the fact that in the Gulf of New Mexico, the horizontal axis of the eclipse chart is exactly squared by the eclipse degree. That hurricane formed exactly there, in the middle of the Gulf -…

THE SOLAR ECLIPSE’S PRENATAL KICKS

BLOG
The Great American Eclipse, as has been called because it'll be visible in the United States, is still in the womb of Mother Cosmos. But like all fetuses about to be born, it's attracting a lot of attention. Astrologers seem to agree that it will greatly affect the USA President Donald Trump, whose chart has close links with the eclipse degree (especially if he was born at 10:54, as says his BC). They aren't very clear as per what tricks exactly would this cosmic influence play on him (which is perfectly OK because that's really very hard to say), but they seem to agree that the influence will be mostly "bad". I'm mostly concerned with the fact that whatever his true time of birth, the eclipse will take place very close…

PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE IN EUROPE

BLOG
So, the lunar eclipse is over. Is it really? It is, for the hordes of observers who made pictures of the deformed Moon to post them on facebook. But it's not over for a diligent astrologer who knows that every eclipse sets things in motion. It doesn't end when it ends. It's a process. This partial lunar eclipse was/is particularly strongly in south-eastern parts of Europe where it stretched itself along the horizontal axis, with the Moon on the east. In other words, Moon was exactly rising in those parts at the time of the eclipse (see astrolocality map), and the closeness of an eclipsed celestial body to one of the sensitive Earth-related celestial points makes an eclipse particularly strongly felt in those regions of our planet. As every eclipse, also this…

DONALD TRUMP, THE AUGUST ECLIPSE and NORTH KOREA

BLOG
  The problem with making any prediction concerning the effect of the August SE on Donald Trump is that his time of birth is unsure. He was born either at 9:51 or at 10:54. The latter time is on his birth certificate which should be taken seriously but alas, IF he was born at 9:51, his MC would be in a totally exact sextile with the February 2017 solar eclipse and this would be - for me - an extremely clear sign of his winning the election. There are rumours that Donald's mother said that he was born at 9:51, and, hey, the official declaration of his TOB might be erroneous! It happens! But we don’t know, of course, and probably never will. Progressed Moon in the 10:54 chart was…
