The Affect of the April & May Eclipses

by Raphael Simons


With three eclipses occurring at the same time as the solar flares we have been having, there has been a marked increase in volcanic and seismic activity in the earth, and a sharp increase in anger and violence in the world. The first, a lunar eclipse was on April 25; the second, a solar eclipse, was on May 10; and the third, a lunar eclipse, was on May 25.

The lunar eclipse of May 25 interacts with the April 25th eclipse. At the April 25 eclipse, Neptune was at 4 degrees Pisces, a critical degree. Neptune has since moved to 5 degrees Pisces. On May 25th, the eclipsed Moon was at 4 degrees Sagittarius exactly square the April 25th placement of Neptune, bringing up a great deal of confusion in the world, and a possible tsunami. Where that happens, if it does, could be Hawaii and/or Indonesia.

The chart made for Jakarta, Indonesia has the eclipse Moon in the 4th house with Mars conjunct the malefic star Algol at the zenith, a good indication of seismic activity to come.

The chart for Honolulu has the eclipsed Moon in the 1st house opposite the Sun in the 7th, both square Neptune in the 4th house, with Mars conjunct the 7th house cusp. This is rather violent. There are currently tremors occurring along the west coast with increasing volcanic activity. The Ring of Fire is very active, especially since the solar eclipse of May 10.

The lunar eclipse of May 25 occurred at 4 degrees Sagittarius, a critical degree. A critical degree denotes crisis. Aside from the probabilities of increasing seismic activity, a lunar eclipse in the first 10 degrees of Sagittarius warns of theft. This means that there is a rise of crime everywhere in the world both high and low. Sagittarius rules international trade relations, religious institutions, institutions of higher education and by extension all schools, libraries, courts, and so on. The eclipsed Moon square Neptune shows theft, fraud, and swindling coming these next few months.

Important aspects in the May 25 eclipse chart include the eclipse square Neptune, Uranus at 11 degrees Aries exactly square Pluto at 11 degrees Capricorn, and Mars conjunct the malefic star Algol. All of these show tremendous tension and potential violence in the world that is affecting everyone, one way or another.

In addition to the above mentioned charts, charts were made for the UK, Spain, Iran, Japan, and Washington DC.

The chart for the UK has the eclipsed Moon in the 6th house square Neptune in the 11th. There is a great deal of confusion in Parliament in connection with services and public welfare. Uranus is also in the 11th house square Pluto in the 8th. The UK has tremendous problems having to do with losses of money. At the same time Mars conjunct Algol intercepted in the 12th house shows that there is an increase in violent crime hidden away in slum areas. The public health is not too well either. Yet, the people in general appear to have a rather sanguine view of life these days.

The chart for Spain is rather alarming. The eclipsed Moon is in the 7th house, and Mars is exactly on the Ascendant. It shows much anger and violence coming. And, if there are fault lines in the earth, there could be an earthquake soon. Jupiter is in the 2nd house in this chart. It shows an increase in wealth. Uranus in the 12th house square Pluto in the 8th brings out major crime. There are those who will prosper greatly through theft in these difficult times in Spain.

The chart for Iran shows no earthquake activity as did the charts for the April 25 and May 10 eclipses. The May 10 chart showed trouble and possible failure for the Government. The current chart, with Uranus in the 10th house square Pluto in the 6th, shows sudden, vexatious developments for the Government, connected with the armed forces, that may lead to defeat if not handled carefully.

The chart for Japan shows no earthquake activity as did the chart for the May 10th eclipse. The May 10th chart showed strong probabilities of seismic activity in the western Pacific affecting the western side of the Ring of Fire. In this chart, the eclipse in the 3rd house square Neptune in the 6th with Uranus in the 7th square Pluto in the 4th is troublesome for foreign affairs involving neighbors, the military, especially the navy, international trade. The eclipse in the 3rd house suggests that if there are any earthquakes related to this eclipse they will happen in areas nearby. Indonesia is the most likely candidate.

The chart for the US has the eclipse Moon in the 10th house. Traditionally, an eclipse, whether solar or lunar, in the 10th house generally points to disaster. It brings serious troubles to the Government, especially to the highest offices. The eclipse square Neptune in the 1st house causes agitation among the people, misleading propaganda, crimes, suicides, and much underhandedness and treachery among the people these coming months. It brings fraud and swindling. Uranus is in the 2nd house square Pluto in the 12th. It warns of unexpected losses, bankruptcies, and a potential crash, or strange, unanticipated occurences in the stock market, meaning much fear and unease in financial circles. Criminal activities in the banking sector will cause more harm. Mars is at the nadir of this chart, opposite the mid-heaven denoting extreme hostility against the incumbent coming from the opposition. A great deal of harm can be done which will affect both sides adversely. With all this, the eclipse in the 10th house on a critical degree goes against the national honor in the eyes of the world, and warns that the Government is in danger of defeat.
