Changes on their Waysurfsongusa
Milky Way Galaxy – Astronomers, astrologers, and NASA are all heralding a unique alignment this summer. Some are saying that “bridges between worlds” will be opened during this where/when, in one way or another. It is an opportunity for peace, a turning point to truly discuss the resolution of our perceived differences.
On June 13, 2010, six of the largest planets in our solar system will begin their procession into a balanced alignment. Along with the Sun, their combined gravitational pull offers an enormous contribution to a phenomenal event.
“The alignment of planets will appear from Earth like a straight line of six planets with the sun in the middle; Uranus, Jupiter and Mercury lined up on one side of the sun, while Venus, Mars and Saturn will be lined up on the opposite. The Earth will thus be perpendicular to this alignment, forming a giant T-shape.”
Then, on Sunday, July 11, 2010, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth’s southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon’s umbral shadow crosses the South Pacific Ocean where it makes no landfall except for Mangaia (Cook Islands) and Easter Island (Isla de Pascua). The path of totality ends just after reaching southern Chile and Argentina. The Moon’s penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering the South Pacific and southern South America.”
(More information can be found here, along with an interesting discussion on how this alignment may affect paranormal activity and ghost sightings.)
Here is what NASA has to say on these planetary occurrences.
And, here is the entry that already appears on Wikipedia about this phenomenon.
Tracking the Eclipse
On July 11, 2010, one of the most unique, special, and potentially “one-of-a-kind” total solar eclipses will occur across a long track of the Southern Pacific Ocean. Approximately half-way through this eclipse, the path crosses over Earth’s most isolated, and storied specks of land – Easter Island.
For just over 4 minutes and 45 seconds, the darkened sun will hang nearly 40° above the northwest horizon. Without a doubt, a photograph of the eerily blotted out Sun in the background, framed by one or more of the brooding, giant Moai statues that stand silently on guard throughout the landscape of this barren island, has to quality as the “penultimate Kodak Moment” for any serious photographer
One company, Twilight Tours, on Easter Island, is already promoting a trip to see the spectacle.
What The T will bring
Bill Street, who runs the Astrology for the Soul web site has this to say about the meaning and effect of the 2010 planetary alignment and total solar eclipse:
“Given historical precedence and the archetypal dynamics involved, The Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus T-Square of 2010 should coincide with a period of socio-political upheaval and destabilization, if not crisis. This alignment is arguably one of the most important astrological signatures of the first half of this century, certainly of the first three decades.
This T-Square symbolically represents a turning point in which economic, cultural, and political difficulties of the last decades come to a head and demand resolution.
Out of this alchemical vessel of 2010 should arise significantly original and unprecedented social and political movements and reform. Certainly, there is a hope that what will emerge out the tensions of this time will produce greater freedoms, tolerance, peace, and prosperity. However, to remain true to past patterns, we can only say that what will materialize we be both progressive and regressive, tolerant and fascist, peaceful and oppositional — polarities that grow stronger.
If astrology is to grant anything to collective knowledge, it is the visionary capacity to see through the contingencies of history and see into forces and energies that inform and are in dialogue with our collective evolution. Whatever the period surrounding 2010 may bring — environmental catastrophe, financial collapse, political reformation and counter-reformation (or any combination thereof) — it is best not to see the events as an isolated crisis.
Rather, astrology suggests that the events around 2010 should be seen upon a continuum in which tension and problems of the era demand and create growth and evolution. Thus, the astrological paradigm is not the province of Cassandras who intuit gloom and doom but is a way of seeing that potential greatness and maturity doesn’t come without growing pains and birth pangs.”
