Jan 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse as seen from space

Wow! This photo of the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse which was taken from space is a must-see if you haven’t!

Guess the amazing ‘ring of fire’ photo of January 4th is of particular interest to this reluctant astrologer because this Solar Eclipse @13Cap38 in the Zodiac occurred precisely upon my natal 4th house Sun position. And the 4th is the house of endings and partings.

Astrologically, January 4, 2011’s Solar Eclipse falls into the 13 North Series which, to paraphrase Brady’s Predictive Astrology, indicates a flavor of:

‘groups and associations; group projects require the breaking of an already existing bond; separation, then joint achievement’ (paraphrasing.)

Also, 13N is associated with the founding of America for the Series’ initial manifestation occurred on August 14, 1776 @21Leo52, with the final signings of the Declaration of Independence occurring on August 2, 1776. (Big events often occur up to two weeks before or after an eclipse’s actual date.)

And on August 14, 1776, there was an interesting midpoint picture in force:

Mars/NN = Pluto: the performance of record joint achievements; a violent or forced separation from a partnership or union. (Ebertin.)

Now that sounds about right, doesn’t it?

Yet I didn’t have the influence of 13N in mind last week when I deleted my FaceBook account. I was thinking of how Goldman-Sachs and Russia are investing in the site and how FB won’t disclose its own financial information, yet it can’t seem to spread its members’ personal details widely enough.

And FB assures me that I can return any time I like by using the same password! Makes me wonder how deleted my personal info actually is, y’know? (Under reason for leaving, I put “Goldman-Sachs and Russia.”)

So check out the smashing eclipse photo linked above, if you haven’t, and if you should need me, you’ll find me still a-tweet on Twitter.

“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…
