Appulse Lunar Eclipse of 2013 May 25

19 May 2013



What did the Astrologers of Ninevah and Babylon say about Eclipses? Omens from Eclipses; I have not informed the king, my lord of the account of the eclipse with my own mouth, I have not yet written, so I send to the king. Of the eclipse, it’s evil up to the very month, day, watch, point of the light where it began and where the Moon pulled and drew off its eclipse—these concern its’ evil. {Quoted from No: 268 of The Reports of the Magicians and Astrologers of Ninevah and Babylon in the British Museum, Part Two, by R. Campbell Thompson}.

The effects of the Eclipse are by how many hours it is visible in the sky with this one being visible.  We see that this eclipse is quick so this will manifest the effects of this eclipse and increase those effects from past eclipses to manifest within the next four to six months.

As so determined this Eclipse located in the 9th House (Long distance travel and national and international law are associated with the 9th house. Shipping, international water routes, maritime law, space travel, religion, belief systems and philosophy also fall under the purview of the 9th house. Societal taboos, values, mores, the legal system and transmission of the higher laws of society are reflected through the 3rd house of communication and education. The highest values of the nation are transmitted (9th/3rd) to the populace through institutions dedicated to preservation of its cherished beliefs and moral philosophy.)

Time and Path of the Eclipse

The duration of this eclipse is that of zero hours thirty-three minutes and thirty-four seconds.  As being calculated from San Juan, PR at the hour of 00:24:55 am AST ending near the hour of 13:00 AST, falling on the vespertine (darkness/shadows) of the morning to the Full Moon this eclipse is visible all over the North America, South America, Central to Eastern Canada, the Caribbean, Western Africa from the North to Southern regions and parts of Southern Greenland. This is one of square and opposing aspects from the Moon with the Rising Mars and the Sun, Mars being with Algol below the horizon and Mars being conjunct with the Tail of the Dragon.  This will magnify all the effects in which are of this eclipse on the human race.

What to expect of this Eclipse

Being of the influences of the nineteenth Arabic Moon Mansion; the ruling spirit of Amatiel and being known as the Tail of the Scorpion and that of the nature of Mercury and Mars colours ruling the nature planets are orange and red the colours of justice, truth, magic, and all things of Mercury, and that of energy, aggression, creative force, and all things of Mars.  The influences of this Arabic Moon Mansion of precaution, magical safeguards, contraception and taking one’s security seriously and the effects are confrontational, aggressive, arguments and conflicts.  Mars is the planet of blood and rules the reproductive organs as well as the genitalia.  It is fast in his nature as is the Moon which indicates things moving quick in matters surrounding this eclipse.

As with all eclipses they bring with them portends of events that will affect in this case mankind.  As we watch the current events that span the globe, we see that many countries and states are finally though in the United States is a civil right that now same-sex marriages are on the rise of becoming legal in many states and soon this will be in all in all the globe as is clear from all the countries in South America, Europe that to date have signed bills making same-sex marriage legal.  This is what is changing of the laws and customs.  This I mentioned in the last eclipse reading where it was in Sagittarius.  This is a good thing for humanity while many others due to this bring contention and quarrels trying to argue that this is immoral and against their beliefs so again this too occurs.

In this eclipse we will see much of the same as the Eclipse is on the Mid-heaven and to the west and this again shows laws will be changing, customs will become unorthodox in practice, again more contentions between cultures and beliefs/religions.  This eclipse too will affect those persons of nobility and stature who are of royal blood lines and it will increase in those countries and their quality of men that are of middle age in how they do business or run their countries.  Justices, arguments made, lawsuits and those persons who have issue with custom and have brought with them quarrels, war and bloodshed to the innocent justice.  Though this is not to say it will be without more of the same to humanity.  Being square to the Rising this which signifies the behaviour of the effects it will greatly affect humanity as with the rising being Aquarius and its’ ruler is Saturn this is the day time nature of Saturn and it is one of erratic, tendencies towards aggressive behaviour, but that of an unorthodox mind, it can also bring increase issues with those persons of mental problems.  It will be a most aggressive nature from this eclipse.  As also we see in the rising house it is with Aquarius rising, ruled by Saturn then we have Pisces in the same house as ruled by Jupiter and then Aries  ruled by Mars all three superior planets energy in the same house this can show a rise in arguments among men as well as show that of earth events dealing with earthquakes, inundations and fires or explosions.  Chaos!

Mars is opposing the Moon and Mars is with Algol/Head of Medusa this is one of the most dangerous fixed stars if setting ill with certain luminaries or planets.  In this case she is of great evil and portends many evils as she is below the heavens and with the Sun which is opposing the Moon.  Here it brings dangers to an increase in loss of life by the hand of another and because prior to Mercury being connected to this house it was known as the house of the Goddess and the Moon rejoiced in this house.  Making it more closely associated to that of the Occult practices and that of religion.  So here we may see a rise in those turning their backs on one belief to follow that of another.  As we also have the Tail of the Dragon in this house and this is yet another malevolent placement be watchful of attacks against those who in society are not of an orthodox belief.  We may see a rise in persecution but with justice being handed down and today with the laws changing as well as customs in cultures and beliefs it is the new age of awakening and with that comes great battles.

Those born at this exact hour will be born with the eyes as blue as the sea.

In looking at the decan/face in which the eclipse is in, it sits in the first face/decan of Sagittarius and this portends increase in thievery and a rise in sexual attacks.

Also we see in this decan of the sign Sagittarius a rise in danger seditions (incitement of discontent or rebellion against a government) among those serving in government and especially between men, egos will fly and we will see greater opposition against those new laws, stubborn as to allowing new laws to pass and lack of compromise.  There will be a sense of fear and distrust in those deals made; a feeling of distrust and deceit in order for one gain over the other.

Being an eclipse that is of the Spring time it will destroy those beautiful growths of flowers and trees by that of fires or intended destruction of the land to build.

In the stars this is at the degree in which is of the nature of both Saturn and Jupiter and influenced by Antares which is the 4° degree and in the weather patterns it portends an increase in snow storms around the globe in those areas where the eclipse is most dominant in visibility.

Note:  See also my other writing at on diseases and the replies.  There have already been cases of the plague in the US since my last predictions from the past eclipses.

We will see in the weather, Strong winds, heavy rains, thunder and lightning this is because of Arcturus’s placement with Mars.  Also we will see in the weather continued heavy showers and thunder due to the continued placement of Saturn with Spica.

Note:  Review my other writings from the Eclipses from 2011 June and 2012 May they are heavy with dangerous weather patterns at

Note:  Eclipses affect those individuals whose maps of birth have configurations similar to those at the time of an eclipse, and who may also be living under the shadow of the eclipse, or if it is visible to them.  At the Solar Eclipse the solar activity is depleted and low.  At the New Moon if an Eclipse of the Moon the Lunar activity is more depleted than that of the Solar Eclipses is portends which should not be overlooked.  The effect of the Solar Eclipse endures a year for every hour the Sun is eclipsed and a month for every hour the Moon is eclipsed.  An Eclipse of the Sun especially falling on the places of malefics in the radical map tend to renew and increase the original strength of such malefic, whether it relates to trouble, sickness, or death.  No effect of an eclipse can be very good even falling on the place of a benefic (this being either Jupiter or Venus), but the evil effects ascribed to them are probable.  The Lord of an Eclipse being in a human sign its evil effects will fall upon Mankind.

They are more important and serious in their effects if they occur on a birthday, and take part in the Solar revelation.  A male born at the time of a Solar eclipse may not breathe, or expire soon after birth and with a female born at the eclipse of the Moon.  An eclipse of the Sun threatens some male members of the family with sickness, hurt or death, and an Eclipse of the Moon some female member.  An eclipse falling on the Moon in a child’s map denotes hurt to the Mother; falling on the Sun, hurt to the father, on the place of Jupiter, hurt to the uncle; on the place of Mars to a brother; on the place of Venus, a hurt to a sister ; on the place of Mercury a hurt to an aunt.

Further occurrences are in the areas of afflictions and diseases.
