The New Moon solar eclipse on February 15 2018 falls at 27º Aquarius. This position is directly opposite the right, royal Regulus Solar Eclipse last August at 28º Leo. The solar eclipse February 2018 brings to completion projects or issues raised at the August 2017 solar eclipse. That last eclipse was quite elite in its style, whereas this Aquarian eclipse has more of a working-class flavour. This February eclipse aligns with fixed star Gienah in the constellation of the Swan so it still has a regal taste since all white Swans in the UK are supposedly owned by the Queen and are a protected bird. Both Mercury and Venus also fall in other stars in Cygnus, and those stars are Sador and Deneb Adige respectively. The solar eclipse takes place on just after Valentine’s day. Romantic swan? We shall see…
Gienah is found in the Swan’s wing. Cygnus the Swan “Cygnus gives a contemplative, dreamy, cultured and adaptable nature. The affections are ill-regulated and unsteady, the talents develop late. There is some love of water and swimming and the arts.” The swan is yet another bird associated with Jupiter. This time it is actually one of his animal disguises. Jupiter took the form of a swan to seduce Leda, Queen of Sparta.
Solar Eclipse February 2018 By Decan
The Sun In Aquarius 3
The ‘occult’ influence is obvious for this solar eclipse February 2018, however, there is also surprisingly great success in a conventional sense. Unusual in an area of the Sun’s detriment. The stars give the Sun some power, but the stars in the goat’s fishtail always seem to bring some downfall. This would be because of a subjects uneasy connection with that difficult ‘occult’ wisdom. Abraham Lincoln is a good example. He was known to be a religious skeptic, and in the end, was assassinated for his abolition of slavery. On the other extreme, there is Paris Hilton…totally a slave to the matrix and its baubles. My guess here is that it’s either all or nothing.
If you play the game and surrender your sovereignty 100%, you have basically sold your soul to the devil. Once in a position of power, you cannot rebel against your paymaster or you will be brought down. Best keep a low profile with this one and work underground. You can still work to bring down the system, but you have to be very clever about it! Austin Coppock calls this decan ‘The Knot’. He says “On a spiritual level this face represents disenchantment with the fabric of everyday life and its petty terrors. It is a divine discontentment, the same that (the Buddha,) Siddhartha Gautauma felt before he left his comfortable home.” 
The Moon In Aquarius 3
The Moon fairs much better than the Sun in Aquarius decan 3 because here it can work its lunar magic peacefully under the moonbeams. In this placement, it is not tempted away from the soul’s mission by the Sun’s egoist yearning for glory. Those touched by the Solar Eclipse February 2018 will come to peace with the fact that they will never really be accepted by society. It no longer bothers them too much as they know how messed up the system is.
There are a few natives with this position that fell foul to the ‘peculiar domestic conditions’ that comes with the Moon in this decan. (Ie. Woody Allen marrying his adopted daughter.) Other natives; Samantha Fox (Britain’s most popular page 3 girl of all time), made a career out of looking like she was ‘available’ for any guy, while all the time concealing her true self. In 2003 she came out as a lesbian. The irony! Moon rules the breasts too. This decan seems to be awash with paradoxes. The Moon will bring this out in the home with a humanitarian mother. Princess Diana certainly pushed boundaries about what is acceptable behavior for a princess.
Solar Eclipse February 2018 Astrology
This solar eclipse February 2018 brings to a head the themes I mentioned in the February Astrology report. You’ll see that this yod is filtering down to Ceres at 7º Leo, so anybody who has planets at 6º/7º/8º Leo gets this thing pointing at them. The yod is like the finger of God pointing at you. So whatever you think is a higher power, you should feel pretty inspired by during the period leading up to the Solar Eclipse and then after. Themes are relationships with Venus being involved and Saturn for stability or commitment. It is pointing towards a traditional connection with Ceres.
However, this Yod could point to a ‘Dark Cupid’ abduction as there is a negative side to Ceres. Do you want something that’s going to last? Or a fling that will affect you negatively in the future? The Yod effect continues to February 17th when Ceres moves on to Praesaepe for about four days.
This fixed star Chinese meaning is ‘the spirit of the ancestors’, while in the west it is known as the Beehive star cluster. Because it’s the beehive, there’s that hive mind problem with it as well. We will have to be careful of ultra-collectivist thinking too.
Some people are comfortable with that sort of collectivity while others are more individualistic. However, the more one is under threat, the more people are likely to band together and cling to their family groups. February the 21st there’s another yod again and this time it’s Mercury at 6º Pisces. The trickster takes over from where Venus left off, doing the same thing, pointing down to that Ceres yod.
Solar Eclipse Aspect
Moon conjunct Mercury can be very naughty or very nice, this is the trickster we are talking about after all. At best, the combination of logic and intuition gives great common sense. This is a shape-shifting combo with rapid mood swings. A whimsical thought process will prevail. This aspect finds it hard to get to the point, but is very smart at observing the small details of everyday life. The Moon does a great job of adding empathy and soften the tendency to Nerd-out….
Moon/Mercury is clever at spinning a yarn, and serves comedians very well since much comedy is based on truthful observations of everyday human habits. The archetype has the feel of the magician about it. Thoughts are things we could conjure themselves up a beautiful community arrangement if we focus on our dreams for long enough.
Solar Eclipse February 2018 Summary
There is an element of disguise with the February solar eclipse, it could be about selling your soul to the devil or deciding to work behind the scenes incognito. The Swan makes a perfectly benign, feathery white costume from which you can work your magic under. Even the aspect of this eclipse has trickery involved due to Mercury being featured. There is also Mars square Neptune which ads more elements of deception and seduction. Watch out for the false gurus and fake celebrities in the mainstream media.
Some mundane astrology now. The last Solar Eclipse in August 2017 hit both the state of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump’s Mars. They all have their Mars uncannily at 26º/28º Leo. This time the Solar Eclipse will be opposite that degree, so there may be some trickery connected with Trump, Netanyahu and Israel’s role in the Middle East over the next 6 months. Not only that but The USA chart’s Moon is also at 27º Aquarius, so bang on this solar eclipse. Ceres signifies opium, so the Ceres Yod could also be pointing at the USA’s problems with narcotics. The Ceres Yod points directedly at the USA’s North Node at 7º Leo. With the solar eclipse being visible in South America, this could bring up the issues of drug smuggling from Mexico. There is apparently an opiate epidemic in the USA currently and this is by design.
Across the pond, the EU’s chart has Pluto at 28º Leo and Sweden will get this Solar Eclipse squaring their Venus/Lilith opposition Saturn. I bring Sweden up as there have been rumblings of a possible civil war there due to many refugee centers being burnt down and a build-up of no-go zones that are unsafe even for the police to enter. I already covered Sweden in a past YouTube video, but it now seems the normally chilled Swedes have turned Viking. The weird thing is the only news I can find on this in the mainstream is that “Sweden sends leaflets to 5m homes on how to prepare for war with Russia.” talk about a smoke screen, I think their call for conscription may be used much closer to home! But when in doubt, blame those pesky Russians.
Sweden then, is a very good example of some white swan cover-ups over some very dark agendas. In the YouTube video version, I plan to look into more national charts and research Sweden to see what is really going on. Until then, keep an eye out for any deceptively romantic birds. For if the Swan clamps you with its beak, those elegant long necks can break the arm of a small child.
In the solar eclipse February 2018 YouTube video, I talk further about the solar eclipse’s effect on the national charts of the US and Sweden. Also the cult of swan celebrities, the opium Yod, Antarctica and white feather cover-ups of dark secrets.
