Thursday, March 13 – 7:00pm-9:30pm
It is not only the vernal equinox that moves backwards through the constellations; the other arms of the cardinal cross do as well. The Winter Solstice point at 0 Capricorn is especially interesting. In 1942 The winter solstice passed the first of a group of stars that make up the place where Ophiuchus (the Serpentary) holds a giant serpent. At this point in history the first control nuclear chain reaction happened. In the 1980’s, as the solstice point conjoined the second of the three stars making up that asterism, I predicted that based on what had happened so far, we had until about 2017 to come to terms with the Earth and the biosphere.
Now in 2014 it is becoming clear that the iconography of the constellations is once again working out in history. This talk will discuss how the symbolism of the movement of the winter solstice through the Serpent and the Serpentary has so far manifested in history and is continuing to do so. [This talk is suitable for all levels of astrological knowledge.]
