They’ve been painting the skies for the past week. The patterns range from the traditional, hard, X marks the spot, to the squiggly, obscene looking jizz-shots.
Do it enough days consecutively, with intensity and frequency and the atmosphere changes, morphs, bends to the will of man or the twisted stand–ins. Three days later, the skies are as gray as a Bergman film and the air is filled with a similar, existential dread. I have reports coming in from various places that people are feeling something intense, but they just can’t quite see it, or maybe won’t allow themselves. In just a few, short hours, the Sun goes full Solar Eclipse and it’s going to shadow the Pacific Rim, the Ring of Fire. From California, to New Zealand the sky will be cast in an obsidian tint.
This is classic earthquake weather. Eclipses are frequently (but not always) connected to tectonic shifts. The most famous was a devastating earthquake, centered in Turkey, on August 17th, 1999; just six days after a Full Solar Eclipse hit the Levant. Over 17,000 people perished and damages rose into the billions. It was one of the deadliest quakes of the 20th Century.
On March 9th, 1997, there was a Total Solar Eclipse that centered over Alaska and The Aleutian Islands—seventeen days later a 6.7 quake hit the very same area. The Solar degree is roughly the same as tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse.
Two weeks out from the 8th, we’ll witness a Penumbral Lunar eclipse across most of the USA. This is the first lunar eclipse since the Blood Moon cycle brought us a bunch of sweaty, apocalyptic, expectations.
On Tuesday, we’ll also get a dose of a New Super Moon, as well. We’re used to seeing the swollen satellite hanging low in the horizon, full, but not on Tuesday. The invisible space of the dark Moon is heightened in Pisces, where all of our emotions are running higher than high.
Along with Gemini, Pisces is usually considered a sign that represents duality; From the sacred to the profane and everything in between, that’s the nature of Pisces. It’s the last sign and has all other eleven signs in it. The possibility of anything happening is all there in the sign of the fish–angels and devils abound and the surging polarity is engulfing us like a whirlpool, threatening to take us down into the hungry mouth of Poseidon. Let’s take a gaze into what I’m getting on about.
THE TRUMP EFFECT
There isn’t a more polarizing figure on the planet right now, than Donald Trump. Canadian Prime Minister kissing Obama should be counting his blessings, since “The Donald” has nudged him out of the most hated top spot. But Obama and Trump are playing a game of sorts, politicizing the masses along color and ideological lines.
While the world is frothing at the mouth, spitting out that Trump is a racist, Tom Brady is a racist by association with Trump and any other person with a melanin deficiency who supports Trump is by association, racist. I wonder what the accusers think of Arsenio Hall and Dennis Rodman and to a lesser extant, even Louis Farrakhan all chiming in, with support of Trump, in one form or another? Are they self-hating? closet racists like Dave Chapelle’s portrayal of “Clayton Bigsby, The Black, White Supremacist”? Strange bedfellows for unusual times.
On the other side of the spectrum, “Black Lives Matter” lashes out at critics who are quick to point out that all lives matter. Not so says BLM. White society must make a sacrifice. The only thing that matters is said sacrifice, because the way we’ve evolved, or de-evolved is that one group cannot prosper without the ritual genocide of another. This is an unfortunate axiom of duality.
Racism is the new anti-semitism.
One of the astrological arbiters of our current time is Saturn in Sagittarius. Sag has gotten the rap in the past of being less than savory when it comes to things like fascism and bigotry, because, ironically, Sag is supposed to be one of the most open ended and philosophically expansive signs, but also Sag wants to get to the truth and occasionally, the truth can come out in rather unrefined and unfiltered ways. Saturn is Sauron, lord of this world, the all seeing eye where there are repercussions for living outside the lines, even though that’s exactly what Sauron’s minions do.
If we are clear and our intentions are examined, and our discernment is operating at a high level, we don’t fall prey to deep, emotional charge. We can operate in a field of truth without fear of condemnation or reprisal. But when feelings, thoughts and urges are suppressed over long periods of time, articulating what those feelings are can be extremely difficult. Have you ever seen someone who hasn’t dealt with their anger begin to dip into it? It’s stunning to witness how they can quickly escalate into a murderous rage. This is what certain segments of society are currently feeling, but perhaps none more than the Anglo-Saxons.
For the past eight years, we’ve all witnessed massive social change. We went from being told that we needed to accept same sex marriage, to being informed that it wasn’t enough and we needed to accept trans-gendered consciousness and awareness, while tossing out quaint ideas like male/female designations. We were delivered an Olympic hero, who decided to ditch his former sexual assignment and anything less than supporting the confusing transformation would not be tolerated. If a person didn’t dig Bruce’s new direction, they could be brandished as hateful, ignorant and intolerant. They’d be on the whip end of social conditioning.
Add the loss of jobs through outsourcing, the influx of H-1B visas and even illegal, that’s right, illegal immigrants who get more benefits and social services than so-called Americans and the internalized rage has grown deeper and deeper.
On the other side of the ideological fence, there’s a tacit denial that anger and frustration are not only not allowed, but must be swapped out for the only appropriate emotion; GUILT.
Here comes Donald Trump, the pied-piper, with Gemini Sun, conjunct Uranus in Gemini, along with the True Node. He’s their version of Barnes in Platoon. He’s part of the establishment and yet, he’s also one of them because he has the gall and the platform to utter their thoughts without any fear of reprisal. It doesn’t get better than this. The last time they had someone champion their interests, it was Ron Paul, and no matter how sane Paul sounded, you couldn’t help but think he was either a horse jockey or an extra from “The Hobbit.” For all of Trump’s follicle confusion, he still manages to cast a more powerful image than Paul’s. Could you have imagined a Paul/Dennis Kucinich ticket? They could have called it , “Team Leprechaun.”
This is the reality that Trump’s people are inarticulately attempting to express, but it’s Trump’s bluster and bravado that emboldens them. With Mars in Leo conjunct the ASC, he’s got no issues with projecting his will into the immediate space around him.
But Trump does have some issues with his chart. Pluto in the 12th indicates a powerful, hidden darkness. He has Mercury square Neptune and it is an aspect given to the distortion of truth aka bending reality, which his opponents have latched onto as lying. But let’s be clear–they all lie.
We’re dealing with a powder keg. The USA has been mired in the Weimar Republic for the last five years. What often passes for self-expression is really just a form of perversion that’s been commodified. Whether it’s five-year-old girls preening as beauty queens or sex swapping superstars, we’re in the same timeline as the most decadent phase of German history, which of course lead to the rise of Adolph Hitler on a populist current.
While Trump is appealing to his own, swelling constituency, Barak Obama did exactly the same thing in 2008.
Trump and Hitler have become interwoven in the public debate recently. Louis CK, a Virgo whom I really like said that Trump is the next Hitler or Mussolini. In many ways, this makes sense. If you go back to the last, Uranus in Aries Cycle, which happened between 1926 and 1933, the world witnessed the rise of Hitler and The Third Reich.
And here we are, approaching the third Decan of Uranus in Aries, the Sag Decan and we’re inhabiting the same timeline as Uranus in Taurus moves closer to us in the distance. Trump however, by dint of his Gemini Sun, is also connected to the Kennedy-G.H.W. Bush (both Geminis) timeline and those two are connected to Dallas and 911.
With the insertion of Trump in the intersection of time, something strange is happening; We’re witnessing a wobble of epic proportions.
This eclipse is seismic and ground shaking and while it might not manifest exactly on Tuesday, this, coupled with the upcoming, Lunar Eclipse promises to bring us an upheaval of emotion and even more focus on the planet’s waters. We need to go deep. We need to understand the nature of who and what is behind the energy that would promote blood lust, dark anarchy and vengeance. Until we do, we’ll always be mere puppets on strings–Punch and Judy for the Aquarian Age.
And now for a lighter side of dark humor on the subject, here’s Dave Chapelle.

Robert as always thanks for your insight. There is a groundswell starting in this country to support an outsider, someone who isn’t part of the establishment. And this freaks out the establishment. But what freaks me out more is the viral hate coming against the outsider. On both sides both left and right.
Interesting that his 12th house Pluto is at 11 degrees Leo, which relates to “the spontaneous activity of the innocent mind” according to Dane Rudhyar. So maybe something positive can come about through that aspect, even though it’s deep and dark. Great insights as always, Robert.
So much happening right now…I am uneasy yet not afraid. I feel like I have been preparing for this time my whole life…thank you for your insightful writings. Love the astrological aspect to these crazy times!
Wow. Thank you. Been so angry the last few days for no reason. Feel like my head is going to explode.
Looks like he’s BEEN the establishment since disco played in his caddy to anyone caring to look.
Next. . . .
THEY’RE ALL ESTABLISHMENT. Take your pick: 1) War Mother 2) Creepy Globalist Errand Boy 3) Compromised Male Hustler 4) Devoted Never Held A Real Job In His Life Commie.
Feel the Matrix has been opened.On the start of the beginning of civil war. Sure hope I’m wrong.
Wow….is that what all of this stuff is about? What great written interpretation, old fellow. Quit my job, emotions abound and the Saturn Return (in Sag)has whacked me. I feel like a volcano myself.
Read this every chance I get and it’s amazing to see. Chemtrails? Cathy O’Brien? It’s this society that’s ill, not the little guy…he’s just ignorant.
Hey Steve. Great to see you again. Hang in there with the Saturn Return.
Wow. This is incredible. I saw your 2016 Predictions on Gaia/Gaiam TV and I’m astonished. I’ll be paying attention to the transits more frequently from now on!
LEMON. PERSONALITY. AND DOWN AIR.
I welcome your mentioning of the next great transition.
Uranus moving into the second house of personal finances.
The parallels with the last Great Depression are undeniable.
Part of our craft is to understand the past and move it forward to understand the future.
I think that the difference this time around is where Neptune and Pluto are placed. Oh maybe we should throw Chiron in there too.
Boy Howdy, it looks like a smorgiebord of hot crap coming our way.
Anyhoo, keep up the good work Cowboy.
The Pacific Northwest looks better all the time, doesn’t it.
What I saw Friday night in my hometown disturbed me.A group of people with the right to free speech being stopped by another group who opposed it.We have to be very careful not to get sucked into this.Had a ticket to attend this event but stayed away due to a premonition; remembering what Robert said in his February update to watch the second week of March having something that will happen. Something has shifted also. I see people now in a different way.
dont forget what i predicted Rob, about the second Decanate of Neptune in Pisces… are u feeling it? it just entered this weekend, and hella im feeling it XD, its so much more emotional, less irrational, everyone is kinda insecure and shy, but also many things are being opened, the feminine side, its like i can talk to people and theyre all more open, like i say insecure cause the crab is shy, but also this feminine strenght is there, making a little opposition with he capricorn pluto, it feels like everyone is “ok” and at ease on its place, secure enough to be on its own, making a good sextile with the second decanate of Capricorn Pluto on Taurus, everyone is realizing how they discriminated the “feminine” side of the world, lets say women or androgynous people. and just on the last couple of days i see the rise of the respect of those areas of life, at the same time that its making this opposition with pluto in capricorn, so one moment it feels emotional, the other unemotional form of capricorn, so manly euphoria, and strenght enough to be a man and do what the men does, this feeling of euphoria is everywhere and right now i can say its there with the second decanate of neptune in pisces doing opposition and understanding, I like it, I love how women and men are feeling these two perspectives from a different “opposite” way, like if ure a girl u feel it like being a total lady, if u are a man, u feel it on your “balls” lmao, and u become super euphoric, also women might feel euphoric now and then, whereas men might feel “emotional” and feminine at times, i just love my reasoning right now, i remember kind of what life was before neptune entered pisces, as im feeling pretty much more rational, and i can see “again” stuff for what it is, i wonder for the ignorant guys, what will be the effect, just to say, on the very first hours of neptune in pisces second decanate, saturday midnight, i was assaulted by these three people, like i was never before, three delinquents, who were seemingly on drugs, i was never ever been beat up lol, but i must say i was around the wrong places at the wrong times, for the first time, cause on the first decanate of pisces pluto u felt the dangers or something, but now we just dont!!! thats cool and bad, cause we dont need intuition no more, so we basically need to take care of ourselves again, cause neptune in pisces isnt helping on that department no more… lmao, feels really good, as a scorpio pluto i was already tired of the first decanate, really really draining for us…. now we are kind of ganining control again into our weird dark mental processes of life and the way we function as a generation, so thanks for always having a place to listen, i know cancer plutos gave you physical home, but you virgo plutos are giving us a digital home, lmao, and thats what we need, for our “videogame” lifes, alternative, sub, underground 3D vision…. they say we see life with dark tinted glasses lmao, its true. BTW, i hope i can see you and chat about the future, this second decanat of pisces neptune means, the opening to the new world, it feels like imagination and nurturing understanding will bring a lot of new technologies and ideas, on the downside, people might become erratic and super agressive, like the thing that happened to me, just take care a lot, and keep focused, seems like the equalizing time for society is arriving, u either focus and do good stuff, or you do wrong, assault, steal or do wrong stuff, easy as that, i really really hope humanity evolves as much as possible on these years, cause hella we will need it, its capricorn pluto 17 degrees already, Aquarius Pluto is next to the corner, we need a decent humanity for the next years coming… greetings!!!!!
Awesome article.Really happy to see this.
