May 25th sees the final eclipse in the Gemini-Sagittarius group that’s spanned November 2o1o until now. You can see it’s at 4° Sagittarius. In the way of these eclipse groups, it has overlapped at one end with Cancer-Capricorn and now it’s overlapping at this end with Taurus-Scorpio.
Already you can see a pattern there. You get fire-air eclipses or water-earth eclipses. These have quite a different feel, and taking note of the elements involved and comparing those to your own chart should give you a clue to how much or how little impact the eclipse will have.
This particular eclipse is mild anyway. Viewed from the earth it will be almost undetectable, and you can see from the chart that the Lunar Nodes are a good 2o° away from the Moon and Sun.
Gemini-Sag is the information axis, of course. And in this country, this period has been partially defined by the phone hacking scandal that led to both the closure of The News of the World and the Leveson enquiry. There was also the MPs expenses scandal which was exposed through the use of the freedom of information by a journalist at the Telegraph. Eclipses are endings and exposures.
Another ending in this period has been old-fashioned print journalism. It staggers on, of course, but it will never be the same again. Sagittarius rules publishing; Gemini rules journalism. Also the ebook has finally, properly arrived. In fact, publishing is booming, just not in quite the same way it used to. It’s changed, and that is one of the other roles of eclipses, the acceleration of change. It’s like certain parts of the chart get pushed through a time vortex and speeded up.

The Taurus-Scorpio eclipses are already showing a strong emphasis on the exposure of abuse scandals – old and new – including right here in Oxford, where a pedophile/trafficking ring has been jailed. I have already written about how the case in Cleveland ties in with these eclipses.
I think questions of debt – Scorpio – and expenditure –Taurus – will also be come to the fore under these eclipses.
So this final one in Sagittarius is the bookend for the information group. That doesn’t mean the situation is complete. In fact, there’s a big build up of planets now in Gemini, including Jupiter himself, so there’s going to be media about media, news about news now. But it does signal that the spotlight is moving on, and the changeometer.
In the past few weeks there has been another revelation about the Milly Dowler case, the one which kicked off the whole hacking scandal in the first place. May she rest in peace now.
