How will the June Solar Eclipse 21 June 2020 impact Australia’s National Chart?
I have used whole sign houses for this exercise, and used the Sydney Inauguration chart of 1 Jan 1901, 1:35 pm Sydney.
First standout: Eclipse Mars in Pisces is square (challenge) our Natal Jupiter in Sagittarius from the 12th house of sorrows/secrets to the 9th house of Foreign Relations. Mars and Jupiter are also in mutual reception, by rulership/exaltation.
Outcome: Trade war with China will escalate and become a real challenge, highlighting the 6mt eclipse period.
Second standout: Our natal Mercury at 27 Sagittarius in 9th house conjoins the Ascendant and Part of Fortune of the Eclipse chart.
Outcome: Australia will lead in any foreign relation talks. (Covid 19 Inquiry?) (Note in our Natal chart Mercury is the ruler of the 6th house, which rules epidemics.)
Third standout: Eclipse Uranus in Taurus in 2nd house (money) is trine (positive) our Part of Fortune in 6th house (essential workers). There will be a push to improve conditions for these workers, and as our Natal Mars is also close by, a push to increase the job seeker/keeper payments will occur, albeit with some hassles (Mars).
General Comment on Eclipse chart.
Eclipse Mercury is on the fixed Star Sirius. This star brings honours, fame and is the brightest star in the sky. It is also called the Dog Star and can bite.
As Mercury is Retrograde at the Eclipse, it is not in its best shape, and will after a few days, oppose Australia’s Sun/Saturn in Capricorn.
Also given that this star is in the nature of Jupiter and Mars, Australia will need to act with heighten diplomacy/wisdom when dealing with foreign powers during any negotiations and trade wars.
Both the Eclipse Sun and Moon falling in our 4th house of land/resources, are midpoint Eclipse Jupiter R and Venus R. Given also the condition of Mercury R in our 4th house, as mentioned above, it certainly will shake things up for our farm produce, mining resources, and also house values.
