Prenumbral* Lunar Eclipse September 16 2016 is at 24º Pisces Decan 3. Aspects: Square Mars & Quincunx Venus. Fixed Star: Markab & Sadalbari In Pegasus
The last decan of Pisces feels like the end of an era and a time when things are about to burst or transcend. There is a lot of complex geometry in the lunar eclipse chart. This intricate web of intrigue is hard to decode. So I will only look at the direct connections to the Eclipse; a square from Mars and the karmic adjustments from two quincunxes. Mars is very important to the Eclipse since it is in a tight trine to Uranus too. There is a lesson to be learnt here through the ‘Learning triangle’ of the Sun, Mars & Uranus, but first we must break each of the Eclipse factors down.
The wild mood changes of this decan are bound to everyone on their toes. Because of fluctuating emotions, those touched by this eclipse might find it hard to keep hold of relationships. The Moon here is apt to lash out for no apparent reason, so this decan is typical of those who would be described as having an “artistic temperament.”
With it’s finger on the pulse the collective, those touched by this eclipse will be very sensitive to what the public perceives them to be. If they can’t be loved, then they might go out of their way to be unpopular and delight in being controversial. The Moon here loves being the subject of gossip, and seems to lap-up any attention, even if it is negative. Bad press doesn’t exist as long as the subject is being talked about; maybe this Eclipse will feed off drama.

The Moon here can be quite “bratty”, for those effected by this eclipse will feel at the mercy of their hormones. It is very important you make time for lunar darkness and quiet or you will become a cranky, pain-in-the-arse for the next 3 months. Beware of infantile rages that can emerge due to unresolved childhood trauma.
Fixed Stars Markab & Sadalbari
Potent mind-power comes from Markab, the alpha star in the wing of Pegasus which “is said to influence above all the spiritual and mental nature, to give a good head for figures, intellectual alertness, mental powers in general and last but not least, the ability to further propaganda activity“ and “Markab also gives “honor, riches and fortune” . The Moon itself on Markab brings “Injuries from enemies and domestic matters, fairly good health but many accidents”. 
The second star Sadalbari is found in the chest of the flying horse, but has no specific meaning. In Arabic this star means the ‘Good Luck of the Excelling One’. So despite the accident problem, there seems to be luck too. A star like this needs all the fortune it can get since it is so impulsive. As Robson points out “The constellation gives ambition, vanity, intuition, enthusiasm, caprice and bad judgment.” 
Lunar Eclipse September 2016 ~ Aspects
Moon square Mars is a highly emotional, combustible and passionate combination. The square brings such intense feelings and moods to crisis point, so people will need to vent this great energy into some project which fuses the Moon with Mars. This could manifest in a variety of ways; starting at the most base level would mean sexual conquesting. Men would have a great appetite for women, plain and simple. In a woman it would be a need to express themselves sexually. If the sexual expression is thwarted in any way, then of course the flip side is great anger and rage.
Moon square Mars has a great urge to protect and defend the family, and a need for families to get ahead. Long hours are worked with success and competitiveness encouraged. There is the danger of being a little too ‘Gung-Ho’ and pushy at this Lunar Eclipse however.
Sun square Mars has courage and ambition in spades. This is front line energy, the pioneers with bags of energy to push dreams to fruition. The only problem is having the patience or stamina to finish a project. We will need to get things done quickly, before getting bored… Courage is a good word for Sun/Mars in general, because ‘Cor’ means heart (Sun rules heart) and well ‘rage’ is rage (Mars). Courage literally means to put ones whole heart into something.
Core – Rage
Those touched by this Lunar Eclipse will want to jump into things head first, and in some cases get many bumps and scars on their head to prove it. Another manifestation of of Sun/Mars is the crime of passion. There is a very fine line between sex and war. But if ones heart (Sun) is broken, then sexual jealousy knows no bounds. Strangely both Al Capone and Oscar Pistorius, who have this aspect, committed murder on St Valentine’s day.
The Karmic Quincunxes
Moon quincunx Venus can sometimes attract violent behaviour as it goes about trying to bring fairness to situations. So those touched by this eclipse have to watch out they don’t become a doormat with all their people-pleasing. Sociable Moon conjunct Venus is so hypersensitive to the needs of others that paradoxically the only way it can get any “me” time is by shutting itself off from company all together. This Lunar eclipse could make some people quite reclusive despite the lure of glamorous parties.
Sun quincunx Uranus wants everyone to be happy, loving and congenial, but can be obsessive in its pursuit of fairness and perfection. Because of a perfectionist quirk, it doesn’t take criticism well, is extremely sensitive and gets upset far too easily. This behaviour can draw the public into very un-peaceful fights. So this combination can be very paradoxical, for example the ‘Champagne Socialist’ who declares they want a fair society where we are all equal, while having very elitist tastes. Moon quincunx Venus looks like witchcraft to me and is a little eerie…
Mars On Lesath
Mars in Sagittarius pulls many of the eclipse factors together. But it is Uranus that has the most favourable influence. Mars happens to be on the fixed star Lesath in the stinger of the Scorpion.
Usually this star is given a really nasty review, but I think in this case, since Lesath is of the nature of Mars and is plugging into this geometric fest by trine, we should consider the best possible outcome.
Eric Morse says of Lesath this it is “ a probing, sharp intellect and incisive wit, every bit as damaging as a knife to its opponent. .. People with star strong in their charts are noted for doing well in debate, business, sport, and high office in general. If not well aspected, though, they can be inclined to strike first and ask afterwards, with an embarrassing loss of face.” 
This Lesath Mars will be tamed hopefully by the enlightened influence of Uranus on Acamar in Eridanus in the river. “Eridanus gives a love of knowledge and science, much travel and many changes, a position of authority” also “Success in public office, ecclesiastical success.”  This is not dogmatic religion, but one that is metaphysical and takes into account the science of natural law.
All good kings in the ancient times had their priestly advisers. Lesath does bring up they subject of psychopathy though. I found it to be one of the stars that turned up again and again in my psychopath research. To be clear, NO planet or star causes psychopathy, or proves the evilness of an individual. In the same way a knives by themselves are not evil. They can be used in defence and healing operations just as much as they are to wound and maim.
The Arena Pattern
The Huber aspect pattern for this eclipse is called ‘The Arena’. It is a combination of a T square and a Learning triangle. All roads point to Mars however. Those connected to 23º Sagittarius will be involved with the bursting of the bubble mentioned in the intro.
Those connected to 23º Aries, will be the horse whisperers to the wild and sometimes reckless Pegasus high-flyers who want to reach for the stars.
The Arena pattern is interesting in terms of the coming US elections;
“In a duel fought in an arena, there can normally be only one winner. However in this quadrilateral there is the opportunity to let both parties win: One with strength and power and the other with shrewdness and knowledge. For this reason the person (Represented by Mars in the Eclipse chart) always puts himself in hot water or in the middle of two conflicting parties, so that he can develop his ability to understand the two conflicting opinions… “Only dead fish go with the flow” are the mottos he likes to live by… To get to the centre, the opposition (or in this case, the lunar eclipse), requires the overcoming of opposites, the blue/red motivation states; harmony through conflict.”  The learning triangle then, puts pressure on the T-square; “It makes a noise to wake people up from their sleep or to draw attention to itself” 
Lunar Eclipse September 2016 ~ Mundane Influence
Donald Trump has natal Moon at 21º Sagittarius opposite natal Sun just shy of 23º Gemini, plugging straight into that Lesath Mars. While Hillary Clinton may have her Moon at 23º Pisces (With the DD rated 8am time.) so this eclipse could fall on her Moon! Their Moons in square to each other would make sense. Will Trump be stung by Hillary’s Scorpio Stellium? This echoes the Orion myth when Gaia sent a Scorpio to sting the boastful hunter in the foot. It will be an interesting show in the political arena for sure. Eco-warrior, play-the-Gaia-“woman-card” Hillary sure has the support of legions of venomous arachnids in the mass media..
The events of the last few months have almost been surreal in their pace to install a NWO/Globalist Kumbaya utopia while so much is crashing down at the same time. The civic violence and chaos of the last few months combined with the ‘propaganda activity’ of Markab are propelling Pegasus skyward. Everything is so dicey though, as the whole house of cards could collapse at any minute.
Lunar Eclipse Summary
In the microcosm of our lives, little victories are made by setting boundaries with people who continually overstep them. This will fortify us and give us courage to face bigger fish. Mars trine Uranus brings the unexpected bravery of suddenly breaking free. It is quite a dare-devil act however, like walking a tight rope between two sky-scrapers. High flying self-confidence after an awakening could be what brave Mars unlocks in this eclipse. With Pegasus, we must hold on tight to our steed and believe the stars are within our grasp. Any doubts and we will fall tumbling down to earth with a bump. Fierce belief, tempered by the wisdom of science is the key!
