Triggers to the Lunar Eclipse of June 15, 2011 by Joseph Addeo

A major predictive technique in an Astrologer’s handbag is seeing how eclipse degrees hit planets in a client’s chart. Action may not occur at the time of an eclipse but the stage is set for future events usually carrying symbolism of the planet which is being affected by the eclipse (within a 3° orb). The fated event often happens within the next 6 months when the planet, and thereby the eclipse degree, is triggered by hard aspect most often by the planet Mars and the Sun (although if the outer planets are in close proximity pay attention to them as well). Mars is the action principle and the Sun is our purpose.

On July 23, 2011 singer Amy Winehouse died, her body discovered at 3:54 pm London time. Her birth info is as follows: September 14, 1983, London England, 12:00 pm (time unknown). Without doing a natal interpretation we can see by taking a cursory look at her chart that she has an abundance of planets within orb of the lunar eclipse of June 15 that took place at 24° Sagittarius.

Her natal placements are: Sun at 21° Virgo, Mercury retrograde at 23° Virgo, Neptune at 26° Sadge, in a 12:00 noon chart the Moon is at 25° Sadge, the nodes are at 20° Gemini/Sadge (she is currently receiving a reverse nodal return) and finally Venus is retrograde at 23° Leo.

On the day of her death Mars is transiting 22° Gemini in a 2° applying aspect by opposition to the eclipse degree thereby making a hard aspect to all the above mentioned planets and points in her chart. She had a very turbulent life and just seeing that she had a Sun/Mercury conjunction square Neptune and most likely the Moon conjunct Neptune I would imagine living on the practical material plane was not easy for her. Rest in peace Ms. Winehouse.

The same thing occurs in mundane astrology although in this case it is just the eclipse degree being triggered which is of main interest.

The most infamous example in recent times was 9/11. Here we had a solar eclipse on June 21, 2001 at 0° Cancer. This is the world axis which only enhances the notoriety of the event. On 9/11 the planet Mars (action, war, attack, and anger) was transiting 1° Capricorn triggering by opposition the eclipse degree.

Our most recent lunar eclipse occurred on June 15, 2011 at 24° Sagittarius. On July 22 yet again, the angry red planet Mars was at 21° of Gemini in a 3° orb of opposing the lunar eclipse: A terrorist bombing in Oslo, Norway near the prime minister’s office kills 7 and injures 15. Shortly after a man dressed in a police uniform opened fire with a rifle in a 90 minute rampage on a group of young people at a resort island 60 miles north of Oslo killing at least 85 who were there on a camp outing. Police say the two incidents are related.

Also of note, most of the United States is in the midst of a paralyzing, record breaking heat wave with some of the highest temperatures and humidity levels ever recorded. Mars was approaching 20° on July 19 and 20 as the heat wave was massively building up across the midsection of the country and expanding east. This extreme heat is set to break a bit as Mars partiles the eclipse degree by opposition at 24° Gemini on Monday, July 25. In weather prediction Mars is known to produce much heat and dryness.

So do take note of when Mars and the Sun in particular are transiting the eclipse degrees by conjunction, square and opposition as you can count on major events manifesting.
