Total Solar Eclipse
February 26, 1998

In a previous article, I advised you to write down the dates of the five eclipses that will occur during 1998. The first of these eclipses will be a total solar eclipse and will occur this week, on Thursday, February 26, 1998. The time of the eclipse will be 12:26 p.m. EST, 11:26 a.m. CST, 10:26 a.m. MST, and 9:26 a.m. PST. In astrological terms, this eclipse arises from a conjunction of the Sun and Moon, which is a New Moon, at 7 degrees and 55 minutes of Pisces.

At a minimum, the astrologer should consider the solar eclipse as a New Moon. Years from now, a careless astrologer, looking at a computer?generated horoscope may notice only the conjunction of the Sun and the Moon, never recognizing that an eclipse occurred. No serious astrological error occurs with such an omission, but some of the additional astrological power of the eclipse will be missed.

If you have a natal planet at or near 7 Pisces 55, or its opposite at 7 Virgo 55, you are already aware that something is changing. This eclipse is square transiting Pluto at 8 Sagittarius 01, and you may think that you are feeling only the transit of Pluto. However, astrologers have long noticed that the effects of an eclipse manifest up to three months before the exact date, and last for about a year after the exact date. For those experiencing that phenomenon, the astrological interpretation of an eclipse conjunct or opposite a natal planet is in the nature of that natal planet.

The mundane interpretation of eclipses has been made simpler by the advent of the Astro*Carto*Graphy technique as taught by Jim Lewis. Something of importance will occur at a place where the eclipse itself or another planet in the chart of the eclipse is conjunct one of the angles. I use Astro*Carto*Graphy software to guide me to an approximate position on Earth where something of significance can be expected. Once I identify a city, I erect a chart for that city for the time of the eclipse to confirm my findings.

For example, at the moment of the eclipse, Uranus will be on the Midheaven for all locations having a longitude of about 105 degrees west. In the United States, this longitude includes the vicinity of Denver, Colorado; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Carlsbad, New Mexico; Santa Fe, New Mexico, and numerous other cities that we do not notice until something significant occurs. When the planet at the Midheaven is Uranus, we can anticipate something unexpected, shocking, unusual, surprising, or electrifying. The chart for Denver at the moment of the eclipse shows a Midheaven of 10 Aquarius 25 with Uranus at 10 Aquarius 21. Close, isn't it? Therefore, I shall not be surprised if something surprising occurs there during the next few months.

Other planets of interest to residents of the United States and the longitudes and nearby cities where these planets will be angular at the moment of the eclipse include the following:

Starting at the West Coast, at the moment of the eclipse, we find Venus on the Midheaven of charts drawn for locations having a longitude of about 121 degrees. There are no major cities in the United States at this longitude. If you live close to this longitude, you are aware of El Nino, earthquakes, fires, and all other forces of nature. Venus will be at 25 Capricorn 53.

At the moment of the eclipse, we find Neptune on the Midheaven of charts drawn for locations having a longitude of about 115 degrees. The best known city at this longitude is Las Vegas, Nevada. Neptune will be at 01 Aquarius 01.

Uranus, at 10 Aquarius 21 has already been discussed at 105 degrees west longitude.

At the moment of the eclipse, we find Jupiter on the Midheaven of charts drawn for locations having a longitude of about 80 West 23. Some of the cities near this longitude are Charlotte, North Carolina; Roanoke, Virginia; and Miami, Florida. Jupiter will be at 5 Pisces 20.

At the moment of the eclipse, we find the Sun and Moon on the Midheaven of charts drawn for locations having a longitude of about 78 West 18. Some of the cities near this longitude are Altoona, Pennsylvania; Batavia, New York; Buffalo, New York; Washington, D.C.; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Wilmington, North Carolina. The Sun and Moon conjunction will be at 7 Pisces 55.

At the moment of the eclipse, we find Mercury on the Midheaven of charts drawn for locations having a longitude of about 74 West 7. The huge metropolitan region encompassing Newark, New Jersey through New York City fits this general longitude. Mercury will be at 11 Pisces 41.

Mars, at 25 Pisces 22, Saturn at 17 Aries 51, and Pluto at 8 Sagittarius will not be at the Midheaven of any chart drawn for a city in the continental United States. They may play a role elsewhere.

Unfortunately, since the effects of an eclipse may occur many months after the moment of the eclipse, it will be difficult to associate an unexpected event with the eclipse. This is one of the problems that astrologers have when explaining astrology to the general public.
