A Week In-Between Eclipses — October 26-November 2 2022


An eclipse portends dramatic changes in affairs both personal and national. It has been noticed to predict the fall of leaderships, and the death of presidents. We are now between the two eclipse dates. Liz Truss’s resignation preceded the new Moon eclipse on Monday by a week, following calls for her to resign. She remains in residence until a new leader is chosen. The New PM has been given the title, Rishi Sunak is the first PM of UK of color, being of Indian origin. This break from tradition is another eclipse event. The upcoming full Moon eclipse on November 8th, is the date of the US election for Congressional leaders and local officials who have term limits. November 1st is election day for Israel Knesset and Prime Minister, so the eclipse is likely to signify surprises in the political contests and change in leadership. Following the eclipse on Tuesday, the Moon transits from Scorpio and a T-square configuration as the world seeks more stability, to Sagittarius with a trine aspect to Jupiter on Thursday for peace initiatives and Jupiter retro re-ingress to Pisces. Mercury in Libra square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, and Mars in Gemini is quincunx to Pluto, and then turns retro on Monday. The Moon at 29 deg Sagittarius makes an opposition aspect to Mars in Gemini on Friday and then a sextile aspect to Mercury at 29 deg in Libra and square aspect to Jupiter retro ay 29 deg in Pisces, prior to the lunar ingress to Capricorn. Mercury ingress to Scorpio early on Sunday, as the Moon ingress to Capricorn. On Tuesday the 31st, the Moon is sextile to Jupiter in Pisces, then ingress to Aquarius a few hours later.

First Quarter Moon Phase
November 1, 2022

Tuesday November 1st — The first quarter Moon phase [see above chart] at a time of polling for PM in Israel, where citizens vote for one party list. The quarter Moon is an indication of a developing crisis. What about the polling will be problematic or indecisive? The results may indicate coalition battles or a second polling if it is too close. A Yod Major formation with the Moon sextile aspect to Chiron retro in Aires and quincunx aspects to Ceres could indicate luck, possibly for the younger generation. The situation in Ukraine/Russia is also very tense amid the ongoing accusations of atrocities committed as Russian troops leave areas they had occupied. Conflicts in Putin’s supporting oligarchs, also cause tensions. Pushing for a settlement adds another layer of complexity to the whole ball of fire. Venus in Scorpio is at the same degree as Putin’s natal Venus. Putin also has a Saturn square to Uranus aspect in his natal chart [see chart below], and his natal Uranus sextile aspect to Uranus station in Taurus. As the architect of this conflict, it has his signature. The Moon in Aquarius transits to the conjunction aspect with Saturn, as Putin’s grasp on power is reaffirmed by the Saturn square aspect to Uranus retro in Taurus; he must stay the course to the bitter end.
