Lunar Eclipse in Leo 2017 – A Democracy Set on Fire Ushers in the First Steps of the Age of Aquarius

On Friday, February 10, 2017, a powerful lunar eclipse in Leo occurs. This energy is symbolic of the current struggle between the elite figures in the world versus the common citizen. In astrology, an eclipse has the potential to be a trigger point in the form of an unexpected event that can be jolting and, quite often, a wakeup call of some sort. This particular eclipse is quite relevant due to the mounting friction between these two groups with radically different philosophies and objectives.

In ancient times, Leo represented the royalty and the upper classes of society. In modern times, Leo simply represents the people in control which equates to the privileged 1% of the corporate elite. The lower path of this Leo energy is representative of self-centered and arrogant elitism.

With this in mind, the new American presidential administration (who shall not be named) are attempting the utter destruction of what was once the noblest governmental design in the history of the world all in the name of more power and greed for themselves. Their basic tenets appear to be to serve only themselves and their financial interests with little to no regard for others. To make matters worse, their methods often deploy dishonest, manipulative, and, quite frankly, abusive means to obtain their objectives.

As Abraham Lincoln once famously stated “a government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.” As stunning as it seems, it is being threatened in a way that we’ve never witnessed before and thus it appears that our delicate system of checks and balances is dangerously close to disappearing from this Earth.

On the other side of the spectrum, we have you and me, the common everyday man and woman. This is Aquarius energy which is representative of the brotherhood/sisterhood of humanity and represents the human family as a whole. The objective of this energy is about uniting and working together as one unit towards the betterment of each other and the planet.

When you take a look at how the lunar eclipse affects the astrology chart of the United States it is quite striking. This is mainly because the United States has an Aquarius Moon. This means that the Leo Moon is forming a 180 degree opposition aspect to the nation’s moon. This is powerful stuff folks! In a nation’s astrology chart, the Moon describes the nature of the citizen’s of that country. With an Aquarian Moon, this indicates that at heart Americans have a deeply rebellious nature which is especially prominent when we’re faced with injustices or tyranny of any sort. Just ask King George III.

Therefore, in the negative sense, this particular opposition aspect equates to a tug-of-war dynamic between the people and the government. Lines are being drawn in the sand and threats and ultimatums are being given by both sides. In other words, this could be each side taking “an eye for an eye” approach as the storm clouds approach.

Now here is the most concerning puzzle piece to all of this: Venus and Mars are transiting through the zodiac sign of Aries and are making a square aspect to the United States Sun in Cancer.

Translation:  Fasten your seatbelts because things are about to get a lot more intense and potentially hostile in words if not in actions. Aries is the sign of the warrior and people on both sides are feeling quite justified in their anger and outrage towards the other. War and aggression against one another and against other nations is quite conceivable. Hence the possibilities could equate to resistance in the form of revolution and rebellion on one side and martial law and staged acts of terrorism from the elite on the other side.

In summary, this is a volatile period that we’re living in and calm heads must prevail. The elite have thoroughly planned their twisted strategy out for quite a while and are setting the stage for total control. For them, it’s an amusing game of chess while for the common person; the very fabric of their lives is in the process of being destroyed.

The famous statesman Patrick Henry once stated in 1775, “Give me liberty, or give me death!” Those words have never rung more true than in today’s world. Due to necessity, the days of fighting tyranny are now upon us and with the potential destruction of our freedoms, human rights, and the very planet in which we live upon, the stakes have never been higher.
