Solar Eclipses of 1989

With today’s 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, I got nosey about which Eclipse influences were around for the year 1989 and thus possibly affecting events of a world-shattering kind.

Nov 9, 1989 falls within the second Solar Eclipse of the year, but for background, let’s consider the first 1989 Solar Eclipse of March 7 @ ’17Pis’ from the 9 New North Series. Let’s also note the date of the Initial Eclipse for both Series in case a history student drops by later for a cup of tea and wishes to link events of 1989 with the Eclipse dates on which the Series began and continued.

9 New North: March 7, 1989 @ ’17Pis’; Initial Eclipse August 21, 1664 @ 28Leo50; last manifested March 19, 2007 @ ’28Pis.’ ‘Accidents, sudden physical events, great efforts, or violence, but can be positive such as a first skiing experience; safety must be cautioned.

The Fall of the Wall occurred during the 9 New South Series:

9 New South: August 31, 1989 @ ‘8Vir’; Initial Eclipse July 19, 1917 @ 25Can51 – conj US natal Mercury Rx thus triggering our US natal Mercury/Pluto opposition (NPR reported today that in the US our politicians were worried (Merc/Pluto) about what the Wall’s Fall would entail and attempted to slow down the process – beezy chastards); last manifested on Sep 11, 2007 @ ’18Vir’ – this Eclipse was basically a Solar Return for the ‘attacks of 9.11.01’ chart.

‘Long-term worries about loved ones, health, or communication issues and paperwork are brought to the surface; a worrying piece of news arrives, or paperwork responsibilities come home to roost; news has a sense of fatedness about it.’ (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology.’)

Fated like a big political wall seemingly falling down like London Bridge?

Many people I know or hear from by email or through blog comments experienced the 9 New South of 2007 as a difficult period to get through, and those with direct or personal links to 9/11 especially and understandably did.

Well, there’s 1989 in an Eclipse nutshell. Issues repeated on some levels, in some way, in 2007. Yet the 20th anniversary of the Wall’s Fall allows resonation somehow through the above Eclipse flavor and I suspect that if one had time one could discover both obvious and discreet connections between the years 1664, 1917, 1935, 1953, 1971, 1989, 2007 – the years in which 9 New South manifested since it began in 1917 (all in all, not a very good year.)

The next Solar Eclipse in this Series: Sep 21, 2025 @ the critical degree of ’29Vir’ in case you’re wondering.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
