Beginning in southern China, and the east China Sea the annular path of the first solar eclipse of 2012 begins at the Moon’s descending node in central Taurus. A wide path of annularity, travels eastward as the shadow sweeps along the southern coast of Japan and heads northeast across the Northern Pacific. The shadow passes south of Alaska’s Aleutian islands slowly curving to the southeast. After an ocean voyage lasting nearly 2 hours, it reaches the coastlines of Southern Oregon, and northern California. It continues it’s journey southeast to central Nevada, southern Utah and northern Arizona, onward to New Mexico and finally above western Texas.
Thanks to NASA.gov detailed information is available online which allows me to decide what and who is affected by the Solar eclipse. Keeping in mind the Lunar eclipse June 4, 2012 will add further details to my forecast.
As the eclipse begins the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mercury and Lilith are moving through Taurus. In astrological terms the four planets with Lilith form a stellium (a grouping) and this accentuates what is seen. Usually when Taurus is involved in an eclipse the electro magnetic fields affecting our planet represents earthquakes and great winds, and mixed with Saturn in Libra drought and poor crops. In some areas floods and storms coming from the seas will be destructive.
In astrological terms the data an astrologer interprets from the planetary aspects has a longer life than the timing of the eclipse. The eclipse course has a 3.5-hour trajectory, in astrological terms that translates to just over 3 years. Some of the forecasting is immediate but some of it begins slowly, and builds over the next 3 years.
Because the northern Pacific will experience the shadow for nearly 2 hours, I would anticipate plate movement within the Pacific Ocean, north and south ( interpreting the lunar eclipse at the same time). Earth movement could possibly affect the Cascadia subduction zone located off the west coast of North America. From mid Vancouver Island to northern California the Juan de Fuca Plate is subducting beneath the North American Plate knowing this information earthquakes will probably increase in and around Vancouver, B.C., Seattle, Washington and off the coast of Oregon, Grants Pass, Medford and Klamath Falls . In California quakes can increase near Eureka, Redding, Sacramento, San Francisco and Los Angeles, basically northern coastline cities.
Alaska could also experience an increase in movement near Anchorage, and areas south of Kiska and Buldir Islands.
Remember this is an eclipse in the sign of Taurus affecting the land, sea and air, despite its strength, it relates to slow movements with strength, over time. The jolts come when opposing planets to the eclipse take place. The immediate jolts take place May 20, 24, 27, June 3, June 5 and June 9.
Despite the fact quakes can take place within May and June, planetary aspects indicate stronger quakes are more likely late September, and early October of this year.
Though I have written this article accentuating the American west coast, I am concerned with quake activity affecting Haikou, Guangzhou, Beijing, Taiwan and other areas close by within China. I am concerned with Japan quake activity in Tokyo , Sendai, and Japan’s southern coastline.
The eclipse represents more than quake activity. It represents storms, high winds and flooding, toxic problems, pollution and volcanic activity.
The eclipses’ activity actually helps Mother Nature regenerate the Earth so mankind and other species survive, and call this planet ‘home’. Eclipse activity is only a disaster when we happen to live in areas we know are prone to quake, volcanic, tsunami and storm activity.
Will Mother Nature act up under this particular eclipse influence over the next 3 years?
Of course she will, but that is normal!
