War is hell. General William Sherman

November’s full Moon is a total lunar eclipse. Occuring on November 8, this is an enormous full Moon that is likely to have some big consequences – some very big outcomes. To say that this is a doozy is not an exaggeration: Uranus is *exactly* conjunct this total lunar eclipse, Mercury and Venus are opposing it and Saturn is also closely squaring it. These are  particularly ‘powderkeg’ energies, and, this total lunar eclipse occurs on the morning of the U.S. midterm election = November 8. There’s some eclipse information at this link.  There’s some more info on this link.

With Uranus exactly conjunct it and Venus opposing it, there can be a strong feeling of separation, alienation and polarisation with this eclipse – it can feel like one has to ‘stand alone‘ (although, of course, one can have strong allies). There is bound to be a strong feeling of ‘battle’ (and the apparent need to bring ‘light’ to situations) around this eclipse, not only through the Sabian Symbol for it, but also the squares and oppositions that are happening along with Uranus being THE major player (Saturn squaring this eclipse is no slouch either). 

To state it further for those that might not realise it, Uranus is conjunct the Moon and the Moon’s north node, Uranus is opposing the Sun, Mercury and Venus and the Moon’s south node, and square Saturn. To clarify further: Saturn is (still) squaring Uranus, it is square the Moon and the Moon’s north node, and, it is squaring the Sun, Mercury and Venus and the Moon’s south node (I think I covered it all – that’s certainly enough). That’s a lot of squares and oppositions.

Venus, the ruler of this total lunar eclipse in Taurus, is on Scorpio 21: OBEYING HIS CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS. Venus moves the next day or so onto Scorpio 22: HUNTERS SHOOTING WILD DUCKS, and, Venus is opposite both Uranus and this eclipsed Moon. Chiron is sitting retrograde on the ‘unexploded bomb’ degree. It’s on Aries 13: A BOMB WHICH FAILED TO EXPLODE IS NOW SAFELY HIDDEN FROM DISCOVERY. So, this is a mixed bag. Of course, we can look at Chiron and be thankful for the ‘unexploded bomb’, but, in a world of possibilities, some ‘bombs’ will definitely go off (I’m thinking more about those things we might have tried to suppress that we can’t keep hidden or secret forever rather than nuclear bombs or the bombs of war). Having said that about ‘war’ and ‘bombs’, etc, there’s a big possibility of a lot of erupted anger and violence on voting day in the U.S. The lunar eclipse occurs in the morning of November 8.

Curiously, and as life would have it, as I was writing about Venus on the ‘soldier obeying his conscience’, I looked at my phone and saw the line from DarkHorse Podcast Clips – ‘We have an obligation to not obey immoral orders’. This is largely what Venus’ message is: We must do what our conscience, our morals, etc, seek to do and not what we might be commanded to do by outside sources. At the same time, there will be those who ‘desert their posts’ – leaving when they might have been expected to stay or commit to something. People might have ‘signed up’ for something but now are rethinking things, possibly retracting their steps. There can be apologies as people realise that they signed up for the wrong thing. Witness the call for ‘covid amnesty’ as seen in the recent article in The Atlantic. There will, no doubt, be more of this in the coming weeks/months or whatever.

Mars is stationary retrograde on Gemini 26 – and it’s rather foreboding for this coming winter. Gemini 26: WINTER FROST IN THE WOODS – heating and utilities, diesel, petrol and gas, food, inflation, etc. I am concerned for those entering winter in the northern hemisphere. This is not likely to be an easy season (especially with all the ‘protesting’ going on with the five Gemini ‘going on strike’ degrees that Mars will all up transit three times before it leaves Gemini in late March 2023.

I’ve long thought about this total eclipse as I saw it coming with Uranus and Saturn all up in it. I’ve done these newsletters for over twenty years and I’ve never wanted to frighten people. Having said that, I feel to lay bare what I’m seeing. We might see massive unrest in the U.S. around the mid-terms with anger and explosions going off (sometimes seemingly randomly but from pressure-cooker tensions that have been building). The trick is most obviously about holding onto our centers and our peace and not letting events, people, reactions, etc, get out of hand. No doubt these energies are not confined to the U.S. – we are likely to see manifestations of this energy from anywhere and everywhere (in some form at least). Of course, some people (perhaps many) will coast through this time with little ramifications from this eclipse. However, they are bound to see the effects in the world around them.

To paraphrase what I heard today, this is a massive challenge between comfort and the truth  (whatever, truly, that might be). We have been under a huge delusion these last three years and some of it is now coming to light. And, we are having, and will have for some time yet, Mars (now stationary and turning retrograde) in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces. And, Mars is in a tight quincunx with Pluto (the need to see around corners as described in my last newsletter). You can check out my last newsletter here where I outlined this rather extraordinary Mars retrograde period and how it correlates with the Venus retrograde period in May-June 2020.

The Sabian Symbol for the eclipse and Uranus is Taurus 17: A SYMBOLICAL BATTLE BETWEEN ‘SWORDS’ THE DISCIPLES OF MIGHT, AND ‘TORCHES’, THE DISCIPLES OF ENLIGHTENMENT. At the risk of sounding churlish or hyperbolic, I feel to mention that Adolph Hitler had his Venus/Mars conjunction on Taurus 17, and, with Saturn squaring them – we also have Saturn now squaring this degree. (Apologies to those who feel rather ‘triggered’ from the mention of Hitler – his name never seems to go away and I realise that I’m not helping :) ). This Symbol, when thinking about the Nazi era of World War II, for me brings up images of tens of thousands of soldiers holding bayonets and torches – an archetypal battle between light and dark, good and bad, the worthy and the unworthy battles of our lives – individually and collectively. On Facebook in early 2016, I predicted the rise of fascism – I was looking at the chart of the Fourth Reich. As we are now hurtling into the orchestrated Fourth Industrial Revolution it seems that I was correct.

I hope for all to have amazing insights and breakthroughs at this eclipse. Please keep in mind that the effects of this eclipse can stretch right into the future. Some astrologers say six months, some say nine, for effects to play out with eclipses. I think it’s unquantifiable – if you have some noteworthy event/s at this time, the consequences can stretch on for years. Suffice to say that the dust doesn’t usual settle back into the same place with these celestial events.

The following are my interpretations of the Sabian Symbols for the planetary positions at the time of the eclipse. The shorter interps are my text that are included with Solar Fire software.


The following is my interpretation of this degree from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees of Wisdom:-


Fuseli, Henry; The Shepherd’s Dream, from ‘Paradise Lost’; Tate

Commentary: ‘A Symbolical Battle’ is pictured here, between the ‘Swords and Torches’. The ‘Swords’ are pictured to be ‘The Disciples of Might’ and the ‘Torches’ ‘The Disciples of Enlightenment’. The ‘Swords’ show weapons and strong-arm tactics, whereas the ‘Torches’ are instruments that bring truth and light. Arguments over ideals can easily lead to ‘Battles’ and war. This suggests a split between using power and strength and using reason and intelligence.

Oracle: There is a struggle between practical needs and the underlying reasons for having those needs. It can be that someone has become so caught up in “what” they are trying to achieve that they have probably lost sight of “why”. The endeavor to bring ‘Enlightenment’ to people often meets with resistance, particularly when this ‘Enlightenment’ will disrupt the usual process of things. One can see this in places where the media has a stranglehold on information. In some instances it is for political agendas and in others it is for commercial reasons, but the effect is the same: to achieve or to maintain a particular agenda by persuasive force. ‘Battles’ are only truly worth fighting when the ideals behind them are clearly believed in or understood. To do this it is often important to pause and reassess why you are doing what you are doing. If fighting becomes a habit and loses its purpose, the spirit can become confused and therefore weakened. Any confusion inside you is an indicator that the power of the outer world needs to be reconsidered. How can things be transformed and brought into the light of acceptance and understanding so that the ‘Sword’ can be dropped and peace reign?

Keywords: The battle of “might versus light”. The Spear of Destiny. Spiritual differences. Arguments. The story of Hitler. The Inquisition. The Crusades. Bringing love and light to war zones. The pen being mightier than the sword. Peace marches, candles, torches. Weapons. The might of the media.

The Caution: Controlling those around with rational or brute force rather than with inner enlightenment or knowledge. People arguing over ideals. Forcing opinions on each other. Religious conflicts. War rallies. Propaganda.

The Karmic Condition (the degree before) of this total lunar eclipse is Taurus 16: AN OLD PERSON IS ATTEMPTING, WITH A DEGREE OF SUCCESS UNSUSPECTED BY THEM, TO REVEAL THE MYSTERIES TO A MOTLEY GROUP

This Symbol implies that one holds an understanding that is either ahead of the times or behind the times. Regardless of which it is, you may feel that no-one is paying attention to your advice or wisdom, but it is not your wisdom that is at fault, it may be your approach coupled with a lack of awareness of the listeners. Perhaps those you are trying to reach are not ready yet for the information or they instinctively already know it. However, often people are soaking up things without really showing how much they are ‘getting it’. Sometimes you teach better by example than by trying to persuade.

Keywords: The need to try a new approach. Challenging the status quo. Astrodrama. Being way ahead of one’s time. Getting one’s message across in an innovative and creative way. A teacher uniting diverse people in a common cause. Generation gaps. Wisdom given with expectation. Ideas bringing people together.

The Caution: Exaggerated opinion of one’s understanding of the situation. The mistaken belief that others need to know something. Not being in touch with the “times”. Feeling outdated. Preaching old, possibly outworn ideas. Insecure feelings based on conservative expectations of others.

The Quest Degree of this total lunar eclipse is Taurus 18: A WOMAN AIRING AN OLD BAG THROUGH A SUNNY WINDOW TO GIVE IT AIR AND SUNSHINE

This Symbol speaks of clearing up clutter, washing and purifying and bring and air and light to situations. It often symbolizes psychotherapy and other self help disciplines that cleanse and purify the mind, emotions and soul. There is often the need to clean out your cupboards, along with your old habits and routines. By keeping everything in your inner self, you can cause a clutter that is restricting. Bring these things to the outer world and see if they are still relevant in the light of day, discarding those that don’t measure up.

Keywords: Psychoanalysis. Past life regressions or memories. Doing domestic chores with a feeling of purpose. Work shopping ideas. Bringing light and freshness to old feelings. Renewal. Throwing out the old or outlived. Cleaning out rooms. Renovations. Letting the sunshine in. Scrubbing clean (and the need for it).

The Caution: Expecting others to take responsibility for cleaning up and airing out. Hanging on to outworn things and memories. Airing one’s ‘dirty laundry’ in public. Rehashing old situations. Going over the same ground over and over. Bringing up issues when it’s inappropriate. Depressed attitudes.


This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be totally self-sufficient and responsible for one’s affairs or life. Often, with this degree, there’s the issue of single parenthood, or the sense of having to raise yourself without too much input from others, or, it can be an issue of coming from a broken family where someone had to take on the role of both mother and father. It can show a personality that doesn’t require assistance for even the most complicated tasks, or you feel you can’t ask; perhaps there’s no one to ask or you feel that others couldn’t do anything as well as you can. Bear in mind, however, that we are all blessed with our individual qualities and it is the combination with other individuals that creates greater balance and depth.

Keywords: Single parenthood. Being proud of one’s individuality. Feeling capable of anything. Spiritual experiences that fill one with one’s own spirit. Self-reliance. The lack of a father figure. Invitro fertilization. The complications of adoption. Self-sufficiency. Facing the world feeling whole. Having the right to determine one’s future. The story of the conception of Jesus.

The Caution: Uncompromising feminism or chauvinism. Feeling like one has to be responsible for everything. Unrealistic independence. Being left alone and abandoned. Having no one to turn to for support. Being an adult before one’s time.

The Sabian Symbol of Mercury and the Karmic Condition degree of the Sun is Scorpio 16: A GIRL’S FACE BREAKING INTO A SMILE

This Symbol shows the ability to, or the necessity of, putting on a happy face, smiling and being warm and welcoming. The fact that the “Girl’s Face is Breaking” into a smile implies that she may not always be smiling; she may not always have things to smile about. However, the act of smiling helps to draw people closer; to give people permission to get to know you. Smiling is the simple sense of inner happiness shining through. But this is more than just an expression of pleasure or joy, it is the expression of your ability to choose between happiness and unhappiness and then choosing to express it. Smile and see how things change. True smiling can be infectious and lighten the mood of those around you.

Keywords: Breaking the ice. Drawing others. Radiating happiness. Facial expressions. Changing one’s expression or demeanor. Facial feedback. Making positive eye contact. Transferring feelings that lift others. Releasing stress, worry and anger. Distances bridged between people. Being face-to-face. Teeth, lips, gums, dimples, eyes. Facial lines. Dental work. Beauty that radiates.

The Caution: False happiness to satisfy others’ needs. Covering up how one’s really feeling through putting on a show of happiness. Lack of sincerity. Rigidity of responses. Sour faces. Feeling sad and lonely. Keeping people on the sidelines and the periphery of one’s life. Grumpy attitudes. Refusal to communicate.

The Sabian Symbol of Venus , the ruler of this total lunar eclipse in Taurus, is Scorpio 21: OBEYING THEIR CONSCIENCE, A SOLDIER RESISTS ORDERS.

This Symbol shows someone who’s “Conscience” stops them from following a certain course of action, staying with a project or relationship when they’d rather leave, or, someone not prepared to compromise their values to do something that society says they must do. You may find yourself in situations where what you are expected to do is against your inner values, conscience or how you see your future unfolding. You may at times in your life have to make the difficult choice between allegiance to duty and your own inner truth. True freedom can only be found when one faces situations with a sense of integrity and prepared to face the consequences, be they positive or negative.

Keywords: Personal morality. Doing what one’s conscience dictates. Going against the status quo. Doing the unexpected. Going by the promptings of the inner voice. The consequences of having a conscience. Not coming home. People clinging to each other. Love that restrains.

The Caution: Displaying cowardice or a lack of courage to act. Not doing what one is expected to do. ‘Going over the top’ in a wild and crazy way. Going AWOL. Being the one who lets everyone down. Court Martials. Antisocial behavior. Anarchists. Being “uncommitted” or “unavailable”. Choosing play instead of duty. Goofing off.


This Symbol implies the need for protection of those who are innocent or younger, smaller, or not able to protect themselves. Being an advocate for others, you can shield them from the more harmful elements of society. You may, at times, feel that you are the one that needs to be protected or given shelter or in need of people declaring a ceasefire and amnesty so people can come out into the open and not be afraid to show their true selves. Of course, there is a need for an outlet for aggressive emotions every now and then. Doing so in groups gives this outlet, such as “Shooting Wild Ducks” some sense of acceptability. However, picking on those that are undefended or smaller is really not right, no matter what the terms.

The Sabian Symbol of stationary retrograde Mars is Gemini 26: WINTER FROST IN THE WOODS

This Symbol shows things in a dormant stage or hibernation stage. There has been a time of fruitfulness which has now passed; this is rather a time or situation of withdrawal and inner growth. However, once again, a time of new developments and fresh growth is surely coming. However, there is no point trying to force growth as it may not be possible now. It is wiser to prepare for more vibrant and expansive times by using times of dormant activity to ensure that you get rest and recharge your batteries. Whilst not much seems to be going on, nature is ensuring that energy is being used to reinforce the roots of things, ready for the coming period of growth and abundance.

Keywords: The calm before the dawn. The silence inherent in cold, barren times. Barren and cold feelings. Refrigeration and freezing. Serenity. Surviving cold conditions. Feeling like one’s on the outside. Being lost in the wilderness. Beautiful surrounds. Lack of fertility. Things freezing up. The need to rug up. Hibernation. Icicles. Battling through hard times. Depression. Growth that is halted or held up. The inevitability of change.

The Caution: Denying the natural flow of the season by trying to rush things. Feeling “frozen out”, lost and neglected. Feeling dead lost and buried. Chills in the air. Keeping one’s feelings on ice. Immobility. Not knowing where to find warmth or nourishment. Losing faith. Infertility. Frigid responses. Stagnation. Loss of love and light. Stunted growth.


This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to envision or decide what you want to be and as you grow and develop, becoming that vision. The “Boy” of this Symbol lived in childhood under a hill figure of a president and when he grew up he became a president himself. At times in your life, you may find that you are growing into the image that you have imagined and it gives you a sense of pride – assuming you have chosen a positive image. What or who do you “Idealize”? What is it that you’d like to become? What image would you like to project? Meditating on a goal or the projection of an ideal can lead to actuality. Just be clear about what you really desire in the situation – you just might get it.

Keywords: Concrete manifestation of one’s ideals. Enduring truths. Culmination of efforts. Projections of ideal images. Wanting to be “big” and successful. Tutankhamen’s mask. Wanting a sense of immortality. Defining one’s fate through conscious manifestation. Morphing reality to suit an objective. Ambition. The ability to see life in inanimate objects.

The Caution: Not being at all clear about whom one is or what one can be. Becoming a screen for the projection of other’s ideals. Stony faces that show the hardships of life. Hardening of one’s personality. Stony faces. Idealizing others therefore losing one’s own identity.

The Sabian Symbol of Saturn is Aquarius 19: A FOREST FIRE FINALLY QUENCHED

This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to rise to the occasion and quench the flames of “Fires” that can leap out of their boundaries and take control of your life. Enthusiastic drive and zeal can sometimes set off an almost uncontrollable and destructive chain of events. You may find that you sometimes get caught up in such situations, emotional or physical. There is likely to be no choice but to fight for control and minimize the destruction. Any efforts will be, at last, successful. You are likely to come out of some life-threatening experiences with a new sense of commitment or a better understanding of the consequences of your actions.

Keywords: Exuberant feelings that come after struggles. Coming out of an experience with a new sense of commitment or a new understanding of consequences. Getting a bee in your bonnet. Spot fires. Jubilation and release after hard labor. Fighting for control. Sparks getting out of control. Events taking off in all directions. Sexual energy and the containment of it. Ideas that get whipped up and take off at high speed. The ferocity of nature. The calm after the storm. Smouldering passions. Smoke. One-eyed focus.

The Caution: Giving up too soon and losing it all. Self-defeating delight in drama. Looking back on a situation that got out of control and produced a lot of rubble. Destructive passions. Losing one’s spark. Running out of fuel. Feeling burnt out. Exhaustion and despair at what’s lost.

The Sabian Symbol of retrograde Neptune is Pisces 23: A ‘MATERIALIZING MEDIUM’ GIVING A SÉANCE – Neptune stations direct on this degree in early December.

This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to pick up subtle energies and psychic clues in the environment. The “Materializing Medium” can receive radiations, frequencies or vibrations that cannot easily be sensed by most people. At times in your life, you will experience a surprising sensitivity and awareness to spiritual forces and energies. This can cause confusion, other times enlightenment. Sit with any new impressions you receive until you understand their authenticity or depth. Sometimes there is a need to free up ‘stuck’ or earthbound entities. This degree can also show someone who can “Materialize” things; they can make things happen just by thinking about or concentrating on them.

Keywords: Spiritual channeling. A need to free up “stuck” or earthbound entities. Efforts to materialize things. Coming straight out with things. Giving voice to spirit. Tarot readings, clairvoyance and clairsentience. Things seen ahead of their time. Bringing messages from the other side. Contacting the dead.

The Caution: Putting on a false front. Merely doing a performance for others. Making things up. Using mind control over others to get a desired outcome. Using sensational methods to induce others to give up control over their own lives. Exorcisms performed by the inexperienced. Inviting weird energies or people.

The Sabian Symbol of stationary direct Pluto is Capricorn 27: A MOUNTAIN PILGRIMAGE

This Symbol shows the ability to, or the need for, being able to climb high, to rise to occasions, perform well, have a mission and, probably most importantly, to embark on spiritual journeys. Many people travel, but more often than not it implies a spiritual striving; an ascent in consciousness and the ability to transcend earthier, immediate matters. There is always the desire, or the need, to strive further, to learn more on the path to understanding and transcendence. You may desire to follow those that have gone before you to achieve a true sense of inner fulfillment. Work towards your own ‘mountain top’. The effort may be great, but so are the rewards.

Keywords: Ascent in consciousness. Spiritual, material, corporate or political striving. Having an entourage of people (or wanting one). Aloneness and separation. Setting off to somewhere else. Going on a mission. Finding one’s spiritual grounding. Getting back to the purer elements of life. Ambitions to get to the top. Wanting the highest office in the land.

The Caution: High moral stands with no depth of feeling. Feeling “high above” others. Feelings of being, or acting like, an ascended being. Haughtiness. Intellectual snobbery. People scrambling for the top. The “tall poppy” syndrome. Ambitions that know no bounds. People ridiculing others for their lesser position. Spiritual or corporate struggling for position.


This Symbol shows that often in one’s life explosive elements need discharging. Pressure cooker energy needs to be released, but it often needs to be done slowly and carefully. By keeping a sense of control, one can handle wild situations, elements or people without things getting out of hand. Be an example to others of how calmness and quiet can take the charge out of things. Take whatever opportunities you can to defuse elements as an explosion often damages more than is expected.

Keywords: Pressure valves. Getting away with something. Tantrums and frustration. Tempers that simmer. Explosive behavior. Bombs, explosions. Sudden and forceful events. Intelligence organizations, CIA, FBI, ASIO, etc. Valuable lessons of self-restraint. Relief from problems. Discharging nervous energy. Security checks. Last minute escapes.

The Caution: Suppressing stress or illness. Doing inappropriate things and thinking the secret safe. Repressing emotions. Undefined anger. Pressure cooker energy that needs to be released slowly. Explosions damaging more than expected. Activists. Deception behind one’s back. Clash of ideals. Terrorism. Anger.

The Sabian Symbol of the Moon’s north node is Taurus 14: ON THE BEACH, CHILDREN PLAY WHILE SHELLFISH GROPE AT THE EDGE OF THE WATER

This Symbol implies people and all living things living together in peace and harmony. They are playing and enjoying and living at the edge of the water on the beach, doing their own thing and getting on with their own lives. People with this Symbol often just want to get on with their own activities and enjoy life and nature. This is a lovely image of a live-and-let-live attitude. Try taking some time out by the water and interact with others there. With the coming and going of the tide, people do what comes most naturally to them. Just be careful that you don’t get out of your depth trying to be like others.

Keywords: Being self-sufficient. Looking after one’s own affairs. A sense of at-one-ment with all forms of life. Having a live and let live attitude. Peripheral vision. Returning to the source. Feeling safe in a natural environment. Playing alongside nature. Building sand castles. Playing in pools or baths. Buckets and spades. Sun protection. Interacting without really interacting. Swimming. Sand, wind and sea. Rockpools. Shellfish, oysters, shrimp.

The Caution: Meddling in people’s lives. Restriction of play. Being distracted. Sandcastles that will eventually get washed away. Not knowing how to loosen up with others and relax into a natural environment. Fussing that people aren’t doing the ‘right thing’. Sunburn and exposure to weather. Voyeurism.

The Sabian Symbol of the Moon’s south node is Scorpio 14: TELEPHONE LINESMEN AT WORK INSTALLING NEW CONNECTIONS

This Symbol implies the ability, or the need, to be able to connect in with people or situations, sometimes with tools and equipment. This degree shows networking, along with the desire to talk to people or bring them together and improve communications. If people have been experiencing failure in fully expressing their thoughts, ideas or emotions, there is nothing to be achieved by just worrying about it; but rather do something to repair the lines of communication. Doing this can cause surprising new connections with people linking up, even from surprisingly isolated places. Sometimes expert advice and help must be called in; this degree often shows people who can do it.

Keywords: Acupuncture and other therapies that work on the body’s meridians. The nervous system. The Internet. Forming new lines of communication. New connections taking place. Linking people up. Making sure that messages get through. Mobile phones, faxes, email. Networks and networking. Switchboards. Satellites. Wires. The ability to reach far distances. Getting on other peoples’ wavelengths. Contacts. Hooking up with the system. UFO experiences. Mobile phones.

The Caution: Failing to see the necessity for repairs to personal communication. Becoming involved in other people’s lives. Gossip. News, thoughts and ideas spreading rapidly and getting out of control. Constant chatting. Being fickle. Sabotage. Engaged signals.
