Solar Eclipse November 2011 – God Stripper

The Solar eclipse on November 25 2011 is at 2º 36’ Sagittarius. It’s closest aspect is Moon quincunx Jupiter and it is on the Fixed star Dschubba in the constellation of Scorpio. The Moon is on Asteroid Fortuna. Looking at the chart the first impression is of a grand trine with a very powerful Mars trine Pluto also, which complements the Scorpionic theme. We have a waning Jupiter trine Pluto aspect also. Put this all together and we get power politics meets religion. I touched on this on the day of the exact trine when I got the image of politicians pillaging the Vatican gold, just like when Nero raided the temples to build a new Rome and Henry the 8th ransacked the monasteries when he became head of the church in England.

Pluto likes to strip things bare, but Jupiter in aspect to Pluto can be great wealth also. Magi astrology regards Jupiter quincunx Pluto to be a millionaire’s aspect. It’s interesting that Magi’s rate (as we do here at Darkstar) the often ignored quincunx. This Eclipse on a Scorpionic star quincunx Jupiter should be saying something about great wealth then. Except, we are in the middle of a recession…

Solar eclipse quincunx Jupiter

Let’s refresh ourselves of the elements of this eclipse. 1st the aspects themselves, Sun quincunx JupiterPushing hard is a way to relieve the tension and this is why these people often appear lucky. However, by putting so much of themselves, their identity on the line, if the scales tip then they can show the Jupiter tendency to excess in a negative way, through guilt or addiction.”

Moon quincunx Jupiter “These people will bounce back again and again. They get through life through the use of a hearty sense of humour. Emotionally extravagant, they over-react in a most dramatic, somewhat camp manner.” In a solar eclipse left-brain thinking is blotted out for a while and intuition takes over. So combine both these aspects and the pushy, excessive solar version of the quincunx gives way to the lunatic humour and the irrepressible quality of the moon quincunx.

This shows to me great hope, enterprise and spirit of the populus, a resolution not to let the bastards grind us down. There is great wealth to be claimed; only this is spiritual gold. This is what has be been buried under the amount of junk (food, gadgets, TV) and distractions (work, internet) of our day to day life. With having some of that taken away, we have come to realise we don’t actually need it. Pluto strips us down, zen like. We are free! Less clutter allows room for jovial spirit to enter. Humour heals.

Asteroid Fortuna 

I found Asteroid Fortuna to be about how we view our fate and how lucky do we think we are. Fortuna is associated with the expression “what goes round comes round”. So she reminds us that when we are at our lowest the only way is up. At the moment of course we are being told that the world is falling into depression. Psychologically how is this affecting us? Are be going to let this effect how lucky we think we are? The stock markets are so very Jupiter, they function on how optimistic we feel from day today

Personally I’m hoping that Asteroid Fortuna will take care of a few things…as I said in my Asteroid Fortuna post “For the Romans, chance events and Fortuna were connected with Virtue, so that immoral individuals would invite bad fortune and virtuous persons would be rewarded with good fortune.” This eclipse has the feel of the “Day of Judgement” about it. It’s interesting that her father Jupiter, the gambler has such an influence over this Eclipse. Life seems like it’s playing a game of Russian roulette with us right now.

Solar Eclipse on Fixed Star Dschubba

This star featured in my post about Psychopath Astrology as what I termed a psycho star. The  June lunar eclipse  2011 was on Lesath, the number one psycho star! Where that eclipse dealt with removing poisons from our body, this one could be about removing toxic people worldwide. The top psycho star scorers were (not surprisingly perhaps) all in the constellation Scorpio, BUT wait! These scorpio-psycho stars are all placed in tropical Sagittarius, a sign generally regarded as benevolent, philosophical, jovial, pious and pretty harmless.

So we get the strange blending of two consecutive zodiac signs and archetypes Scorpio-Pluto and Sagittarius-Jupiter. This combination is describing the transition from 8th house secrecy to 9th house transparency, the bright scorching light of Jupiter burning away the masks. One thing Pluto and Jupiter share is extremism, which makes me think of fundamentalist religions and fanatics. These type of people we often label as being psychopaths, which brings us back to Dschubba.

Dschubba is found on the forehead of the Scorpion at 2º 34’ Sagittarius. At its best “Anyone with this star strong in their horoscope is likely to show a patient and wary approach to any situation, but this will belie the skilled determination which will then be brought to bear. Scorpio is famous for the surgeons born in it and this star shows up just the qualities which they need to have. The same applies to generals, policemen, private investigators and secret service agents, many of whom have this star well placed and aspected.” [1], but at its worst “It causes sudden assaults, malevolence, immorality and shamelessness.” [2] So in a lesser vehicle, the skilful use of the blade and/or weapon, and the cool and calculated planning would be put to darker uses, hence it’s appearance in the chart of the psychopath.

Eclipse tarot – 8 of Swords 

In the celestial tarot this card is Canis Major, the larger of the two hunting dogs of Orion which includes the brightest star in the sky, Sirius. Who is this reminding us of, the big fat shining god of gods Jupiter? The Egyptians also associated Anubus, their guide to the Underworld with Sirius. So we get the hunting hound and underworld guardian in this card, which is still describing the transition from Pluto to Jupiter. Sirius signals the heat of the “Dog days”, which we are obviously in right now. The heat is on, there is nowhere to hide. The card its self is about self exploration, and the realisation that one has been guarding an unconscious position which can be reversed once it is made conscious.

    Marina,
    You expressed here so well, what I have been shouting for years! This is the fateful month in which the top 1% could have a great feast: intervowen with their great demise of sorts… It’s like a huge good-bye party for 2000 plus years of lies, looting and false riches at the expense of the populus. All this is coming to a cross-roads -a crescendo- this month. Whew, we can exhale now!

  2. Interestingly enough I have been looking about into the Saros cycles.

    This eclipse is part of saros cycle 123 and is 53/70 (53rd of 70 in the cycle)

    April 29, 1074 AD
    1:03:56 UT
    Location of greatest eclipse: 39e, 62n

    I did a chart which I hope will come out. I used the location if Koli in the Russian Federation, (34e, 59n) because it is the closet I could find to that latitude and longitude with the online software, the eclipse would have been viewable from there.

    Hopefully this link will work.

    I am most interested to see that Fortuna is conjunct Jupiter, Neptune conjunct the ascendant and opposite Saturn and Lilith conjunct the Sun. Lilith conjunct Sun is also in the 12th house. I did another chart (not linked) adding all the dark goddesses, many of which are lurking in Scorpio to Libra and therefore opposing that Jupiter/Fortuna alliance… so very interesting…

    What I looked up so far for history for a few of the eclipses is that the first ever soldiers to fight in, and possibly lead the first crusade would have been born near the start of this saros cycle. Prior to the cycle the schism between Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic was in the works, the schism took an entire generation to happen and the influence of this saros cycle on that schism interests me. The planning for the first crusade fell within the influence of the second eclipse of this saros cycle. Also a renewal of the monastic life in Europe fell within the influence of this Saros cycle. Some notable people , whose thoughts and ideas changed the world and they way we view the world, were born in years and within the sphere of influence of this sauros cycle. One of these was Marco Polo, whose travels established the silk route and opened up the East to trade with the West…

    I will have to spend more time on it to get a clearer view of the cycle – still these are interesting things to think on, and it is an energy that has worked its way thrrough 3/4 of it’s cycle.

    Doing the math by hand I got the following stars for 1074, April, 29th.

    ASC: Hodeus I (Neptune closer to Hodeus II)
    DSC: Sabik/Massym (Saturn on Massym)
    MC: Alshain
    DC/Nadir: Talitha

    North Node: Zibal

    …very interesting…

    More needs to be done on this just thought I would share in case any of you have some thoughts on it.

    • Oh wow! I have got to draw this one up. Thanks for looking into this. I did want to do the Saro chart also actually, but I didn’t to keep the post short for now. Since we have another 6 months of this it is worth looking into deeper. I am very interested that for me this is another significant eclipse for me. My AC is Hodeus I.
      Nice synchro with Fortuna conjunct Jupiter. Too many synchros these last few days. It’s getting silly. I just bought a couple of books about synchronicity and Jung for the plane.
      Bed time now, but will draw up chart soon.

    • Awesome Marina!

      I look forward to what you will make of this chart! I can’t wait for your thoughts on all the ladies lurking!

      Do check my math on the fixed stars, I was doing it all by hand so am pretty sure I got it correct. If there was another star close I went ahead and listed that.

      The Nasa site has all the links you will need.

      Kewlness!

  3. I found an additional conformation… that the planning for the first of the crusades began around this Saros cycle 123 dated April 29, 1074 A. D.

    “In 1074, Emperor Michael VII to Pope Gregory VII and in 1095, from Emperor Alexios I Komnenos to Pope Urban II blessed Christian armies who fought to reclaim lands lost to Muslim invaders in previous centuries.”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades

    I am also finding some interesting info on publications. New ideas, Tall Tales that expanded awareness and changed thinking of those in the Western Continents.

    In 1110, the book “Imago Mundi de dispositione orbis” compendious encyclopedic description of the world, also containing a short chronicle of universal history in seven books, was copied and interpolated, but not originally composed, by Henry of Mainz; it was really the work of a contemporary, Honorius of Autun, and was the most widely read book of its type.”
    http://cartographic-images.net/Cartographic_Images/215_The_Sawley_Map.html

    Marco Polo (born within a few days of one of the Sauros 123 eclipse’s) wrote a memoir of his travels called “Il Milione” This book later was the inspiration behind Christophoro Colombus’s travels. Chris. C. Was also born near an eclipse of this Sauros 123.

    Interestingly enough some of the things Marco Polo claimed to have seen in his travels could not be found by others who followed the same routes. One of these was the Golden Pavilion Temple in Japan (called Kinkauji) Ironically It eventually was built in 1397 and completed in 1398 within the influence again of a Sauros 123 Solar Eclipse! Too Funny!)
    http://www.smithsonianmag.com/people-places/presence-marco-polo.html

    I am giving thought to some of these individuals and am seeing that even though their works are now seen as less than factual, they are considered more accurate in describing the locations though not the events and peoples encountered. The misinformation did not seem to matter because these became some of the most widely read books in their time, the ideas, and the mapping of the world proved to expand the awareness of everyone exposed to them. Even though, not all the things Marco Polo described existed yet, Columbus was lost, and the Imago Mundi et al was really taken from Honroius of Autun.. They were World Changing, Bigger than life Stories all of them…

    Oh and if a person does a search on Prester John, a fictitious character in tall tales told from the 12th to 17th century “told of a Christian patriarch and king said to rule over a Christian nation lost amidst the Muslims and pagans in the Orient” These ‘Inspiring stories again come to play against the backdrop of the Crusades… so interesting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prester_John

    Looks like my chart link above expired Marina – Can’t wait till I see what you find out.

    I am good at history search and if it is alright I will post if I find more of interest. It is too early to make suppositions on this Saros cycle I am only looking at trends here and starting to see possible patterns…

  4. Sorry hit the post comment button by mistake..Does politics include the corporate politics and the proper politicians as well. greed stems from convergence of both these elements.. this eclipse has slightly optimistic overtones. Cleansing and churning was well overdue. Yes, I agree with you Marina, humour heals better and quicker than time.
