Is Hurricane Harvey “America’s Next Natural Disaster”?

Hurricane Harvey weekend forecast prediction disaster The quick answer: yes, yes it is…

I have written before in various places on my site that I believed one of the consequences of the Great American Eclipse of August 21st would be a subsequent natural disaster on American soil. I also believed – and still do – that such a disaster would test the leadership qualities of elected American officials and politicians. (ETA: Remember how politicians handled Hurricane Katrina? How do you think current politicians would handle such a catastrophe?)

Welcome Hurricane Harvey, a category 3 (ETA: as of late Friday, a category 4!) hurricane currently in the Gulf Coast and expected to make landfall late Friday in Texas with potentially life threatening floods. From an astrological perspective, I’m concerned that there’s even worse destructive potential behind this hurricane than what we see and know now. Not just how rapidly it has gained strength and so soon after an incredibly potent total eclipse that seen its eclipse shadow fall across America, coast to coast. But, this weekend will have a Scorpio Moon.

Great American Eclipse Leo visibility meaning predictions horoscope astrology

There’s eclipses every year. Then there’s this one. The so-called “Great American Eclipse” New Moon Total Solar Eclipse at 28 degrees Leo of August 21st is a big enough event that in some minds it will be remembered in “before” and “after” reference points.

Astronomically, it’s called the “Great American Eclipse” for the full coast-to-coast visibility here in the U.S. (the New Moon will be exact at 1:30 PM Central Standard Time, but the eclipse will be visible around 1:09 PM CST). The shadow of the eclipse falling on U.S. soil, plus the impact the eclipse will have on the “birth” chart of America (aka the “Sibley” chart) promises history changing events from an astrological perspective.

I’ve written about how this eclipse ties into some of the biggest milestones in recent American history as well as Continue reading “New Moon Total Solar Eclipse In Leo August 21st, 2017 – History Is Made”

In astrology, Uranus is known as the planet of freedom, liberation, youthful teenage rebellious energy, eccentricity. When a person is experiencing a major Uranus transit impacting their natal chart, they do often experience what Robert Hand calls “feeling alive again”, that feeling of excitement – rather than fear – of exploring the unknown and unusual in life and in ourselves.

What you should know, if you’re going through a major Uranian phase yourself, is that others will not see the liberation of your mind and spirit through your eyes. They will not see the weights being lifted, the electric wave you’ve caught.

What they may see, from the outside looking in, is someone who’s gone batshit crazy.

Uranus likes to break taboos and convention, and under a major Uranus transit one is inclined to Continue reading “Uranus Transits WILL Make You Look And Act Crazy”
