March 2006 Appulse Lunar Eclipse, Somewhat Unusual
On March 14, 2006 the first of a pair of spring Eclipses occurs. Second Eclipse is on 3-29-06. Yes this Full Moon Appulse Lunar - known as a "penumbral lunar eclipse" should shake things up on many spiritual levels. Despite limited visibility for this event, seen in only parts of Europe and Africa, we will experience profound effect across the entire globe. Most people will not consider the event really dramatic having been spoiled by digital cinematography and Hollywood special effects. Luna moves through only the Earth's penumbra and is only slightly dimmed, yet incredible potential will evolve. the whole Moon will lie completely within the penumbral shadow from 23:18 UT to 00:18 UT (Mar 15). According to Belgian eclipse expert Jean Meeus: this is one of only five such events during the 21st century. Along with bizarre, spectacular weather events from tornados, snow on the Grapevine in Los Angeles to warmest winter on record in Canada, there have been many discoveries and revelations already. On many levels people are just starting to awaken from our current Piscean trance. Will these and other future discoveries be enough to help the average person into a higher quality of life? At this point with Mercury Retrograde and moving closer to another Uranus Mercury meeting on March 25th when the weather messenger moves direct. On the world weather and religious scene expect some incredible things circa 3-24 and 3-25-2006. But I am getting ahead of myself.

Saros Series 8 North Family Opens Doors
This Lunar Eclipse known to be part of Saros Series # L(for lunar) 113 is member of a family of eclipses - SS 8 North. Without getting too technical, the "Saros Cycle" (named from a Greek word meaning "to repeat") and is about 18 years, 11 days and 8 hours (depending upon how many leap days there are on the calendar). Babylonian or Chaldean astronomer-priests back in the age of Taurus discovered that eclipses occur in families that link together the eclipses that happen 18+ years apart. Just like people, these families evolve over cycles that last 12 to 14 centuries, encompassing 70-80 eclipses in a series. It will be our pleasure to experience SS 8 North (as it is called) which is noted for "Intuitive flashes of brilliance are hallmark of Saros Series. The individual will have intuitive leaps, insights, good idas, visions or vivid dreams..." per Bernadette Brady the expert. With this Lunar Eclipse we have the Virgo Moon's ruler, Mercury in mystical Pisces so thoughts are on the far out not just breaking but merging with boundaries. If we have been paying attention to more then the usual mainstream media fear tactics, we are are hearing of one incredible discovery after another and a desire of liberation:

Discoveries, Explorations and Revelations of Mind and Spirit

  • Newfound Ice World Alters Perceptions of Planetary Systems. Astronomers announced today (3-13-06) the discovery of a frigid extrasolar planet several times larger than Earth orbiting a small red dwarf star roughly 9,000 light years away.
  • NASA's Cassini spacecraft may have found evidence of liquid water reservoirs that erupt in Yellowstone-like geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus.
  • The recently discovered rodent species from Southeast Asia, scientists believe is part of the Dinomyidae family of rodents had been extinct for 11 million years
  • Marine biologists have discovered a crustacean in the South Pacific that resembles a lobster or crab covered in what looks like silky fur.
  • On 2-7-06: An international team of scientists says it has found a "lost world" in the Indonesian jungle that is home to dozens of new animal and plant species

The Darker Side: Separation Anxiety Brady continues to describe this Eclipse family: "The new found inspiration will pull the person away from his or her social life or relationship, thus causing a strain on his private life." As we dig deeper, it appears that our paragon of inspiration has another darker side. With the Moon undergoing a darkening just a few minutes after the Full Moon, symbolically women and the public are being kept in the dark as they reach out for hidden truths on this planet.

The Sun at 24° 14' marks a critical period of transformation as the Moon is obscured by the Earth's shadow - our emotional bonds, issues with mother or mothering and women's issues are vulnerable. The Abortion ban by South Dakota and now Mississippi House committee voted Tuesday to ban most abortions has touched off a fierce struggle. Note the Eclipse Moon on the ascendant of the DC chart Full Moon Chart along with Pluto at 26°Sagittarius right on the IC. This point the IC is associated with great upheaval in living conditions, domestic affairs and the "folk-soul" of the Nation. Calls for censure or impeachment of the executive branch are just the beginning of a momentous shift of public opinion. With the Moon in the 12th opposing Sun in house of labor, service and the military - everyone needs to face their own crisis of faith bringing out a hidden, deep desire to serve our enviroment and nation in a peaceful, sustainable way.

Can we Bear to Be Without Our Opiate, Religion
The Sabian Symbol for 25° Pisces per Edmund Jones: "A purging of the priesthood." echoes the death throes of the Piscean age where religion itself along with it's representatives must change. Reformation is the key word. A recent report surfaced how the Irish government is investigating 100 Dublin priests suspected of child sex abuse. With Pluto (the planet of destruction, power and transformation) thrown into the mix via a TSQ to Sun-Moon - this is a time of regeneration despite the terrible calamities to churches, temples, mosques and other places of worship. The Al Askari Shrine bombing in Iraq was the harbringer to great religious collapse as people began to wakeup to their own special connection to Spirit. Even though death walks and stalks our every move recently so that life threatening issues are added to the mix of revelations. DaVinci Code and the Holy Blood and Grail are lightweight compared with what is to come in the next three years leading to Pluto ingress into Capricorn.

More Extreme Weather
Ever since the Pisces New Moon 2006 on 2-27-06, we on the west coast have been literally deluged with water. With today's full moon another storm system moves into Northern California and with Jupiter in Scorpio at the IC we may see some extremes from cold to hot. Scorpio always means extremes, either really wet/dry or hot/cold, con/destructive; oppressive - not exactly mild weather for the rest of March. The most important factor is that Mercury now retrograde in Pisces represents wind, cool to cold and is applying toward another conjunction with Uranus - the record breaker. Uranus in Pisces represents water with cold conditions and unexpected changes including lightning and squalls.

Africa and Europe will not escape extremes The maximum eclipse chart set for Gabon shows the Moon at Midheaven - the Moon is the wettest of all planets. Plus Mercury/Uranus and Sun are together in Pisces the showing showing cool and wet conditions as they move toward the IC. Since Pluto the apex of this Eclipse TSQ sits on the Ascendant, we may see news of Avian Flu filtering out of Gabon and Cameroon. Definitely this axis of 5° to 13°E has a Moon line which will bring extremes including flooding in Southeastern Europe in both Greece and Bulgaria.

Oil Besides Water is In the News in Africa
Geocosmic and major political tensions will sweep thru Gabon's neighbors with Pluto line running thru Nigeria. It is being asked if Nigeria will be the Next Quagmire? It appears that intervention to protect American oil interests in the troubled Niger Delta could happen within the next three months. Black gold coming from Central Africa is a huge focus of this Eclipse - as the IMF sees oil boom opportunity for central Africa. Five of the six CEMAC (Central African Economic and Monetary Community) countries -- which groups Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo Republic, Chad, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon -- are oil producers. All wars including the possible Iran-US confrontation will be started over oil or water resources till 2011.

Part Two dealing with: Total Solar Eclipse on March 29, 2006.
