According to The American Ephemeris, this is the moment when the lunar eclipse begins to take effect. It doesn’t become absolute until 14 minutes later (according to Kepler 7.0). Then all the planets will line up on the same side of the Sun.
But what does this mean for humanity? Or for that matter, life itself?
Some are speculating that an earthquake may strike (but where, exactly?)
Others are seeing this lineup as energy aligning for our spiritual development.
What do you see?
I’ve Seen It Before
Unfortunately, every one who comes across this type of planetary formation thinks that it’s unique and significant. As an experienced Astrologer, I know that these alignments look spectacular (from our limited perspective), but, in fact, happen all the time. We just don’t normally notice.
Two examples, which are earthshaking on their own, might give us a clue: The Birth of Fountain and the Chernobyl Disaster. In each case, one planet was slightly on the ‘other’ side of the Sun’s position: Mars in Fountain’s chart; and Venus in Chernobyl’s chart. But they may be the exceptions to the rule.
The extra energy of the Moon in opposition to the Sun may be a mitigating feature of tomorrow’s lineup.
We will have to wait and see what happens.
