No No I don’t want this to seem alarmist, However this hit me while I was outside, observing Mars and the Moon by eye . I haven’t the exact time specifics, but just by using my mental calculations, this lunar eclipse does appear to be approaching a conjunction , if not flat out occults, the planet Mars. (Oh that bright blue star just below and to the right of Mars? That’s Spica in Virgo. )
This is significant in that The Sun , which Moon and Mars will be opposing, is in the Home sign (Aries) of Mars.
Ordinarily, when Mars and Moon Come to conjunction, I have noticed an increase in anger or violence. I have also always equated lunar eclipses as a sort of Plutonian energy ( from before we knew of Pluto) . This adds more deep intensity of a less constructive and more Destructive sides of these energies.
I am not intending to make anyone afraid of lunar eclipses or the inclusion of mars ALWAYS .. if there were some form of grand trine active, then the effects would be much moderated.
(A brief aside, wouldn’t it be AWESOME if somone were able to catch the ISS in frame of the eclipsed moon?? )
I also see that there are very few ( or weak) POSITIVE in astrological aspect.
Then there is the “Via Combusta’ the “Burning way”, that extends from roughly 15 degrees libra to 15 degrees scorpio. This is a very important section of the zodiac for it contains several “Maleficent” stars .
How will this turn out ? I think we would be ready for a wild ride with the next few eclipses. as they work their way through the burning road.

They aren’t typically very muscular. They look great though when they let themselves be natural, letting their beards and body hair grow. They have a very calm but mischievous, and natural charm. They usually have an “earthy” look and they may wear a lot of neutral colors and natural fabrics.
They are very ambitious, but not necessarily competitive. They would prefer it if there was no competition at all. They don’t like having to fight or compete for what they want, they’d rather just get it. As a result, they are usually very clever. They are good negotiators and bargainers. They are very business minded and calculating.

When they do participate in sports, it is often for practical reasons or to prove something to themselves or someone else. They usually stay in the sport if it is financially rewarding or fits in with some bigger ultimate goal.
In a confrontation, there is no measuring the depths of how low a Mars in Capricorn man will go. They do not play fair and they are happy to fight dirty. Usually though, they don’t actually fight, they find someone else to do it for them. Or they arrange it so that their competitor suffers in some way without ever having an actual confrontation. Or they play dirty, these are the types that would suffocate you in your sleep. Their martial skills are pretty weak so they have to rely on their conniving underhandedness. They are pretty sharp tricksters. And they can’t stand any kind of humiliation. If you attack them in this way, don’t be surprised if they dig out their book of sorcery and you wake up one day not being able to move your legs.
Mars in Capricorn men can be very gloomy and melancholic. They can turn into Scrooge types. Cold, mean, and sitting in the top room of their mansion counting their money. They are best to spend a lot of time in nature. They should definitely make a commitment to some active activity in nature like rock climbing, farming, anything that allows them to really work and sweat outside in the elements.
They are painfully aware of mortality. For them the clock is always ticking in their minds, and sometimes they get so caught up in the climb to material comfort they forget how connected they actually already are to material comfort if they’d only just take a walk outside. They are users. And they have to be careful not to take the Earth for all its worth. Sometimes they get depressed about their own destructiveness.

They usually are very well skilled at arranging things to their lustful benefit. It may take many many years, but they are patient and diligent and they will eventually consummate their desires. Their sex life can be the reason for their ruin. It sometimes overpowers them if they are not careful.
Unlike Mars in Scorpio, Mars in Capricorn can be a little more creepy about their constant horniness. They are not as selective as Scorpio and not always as emotionally attached to their lovers. They tend to objectify their lovers, they see them as a means to end, whereas scorpio connects with their lovers deeply even spiritually. Mars in Capricorn can be very promiscuous and may have little control over their urges. They can be very lecherous and depraved choosing any available body when they get the itch.
Usually though, they are not that crazy they’re just really horny. It is best that they find a relationship with someone who is equally horny and maybe a little twisted. They are extremely loyal in relationships with the right person who understands their needs. If they find the right person they will stay with them forever. They will take care of them and provide for them. They can be very old fashioned and they will provide for their wife and family until their dying breath. These types can be extremely kinky, twisted, and weird in bed and they need a partner that can roll with that without any judgement.
Sexually they usually have quite a lot of stamina. They can go for hours or days. But usually they stop when its time to go to work. Above all else they are extreme workaholics and they usually don’t allow anything to interfere with their ambitious climb to material wealth and stability.

True to my Sagittarian mind, I’m on an infinite quest to “connect” the dots. To take various bits of information and synthesize, thereby creating a whole.
In fact, these pieces may even seem to be unrelated at the time. For most of my adult life, music and astrology have consistently spoken to me. Both are universal languages, and I am of the opinion that if we know how and where to look, we can discover the themes of these two beautiful symbolic tongues manifesting in almost everything around us.
Since I’m a hip hop head, I’ve put together a collection of lyrics for the 12 signs of the zodiac to help you better understand their underlying themes and thought processes. I hope you enjoy.
Note: I have chosen lyrics based on the theme of the zodiac sign and not the particular sign of the quoted emcee.

Carl Jung, a Swiss psychologist and psychotherapist, who is credited(along with Aristotle) with giving rise to the term “Archetype” and broadening it’s exposure, has defined it as :
“a universal and recurring image, pattern, or motif representing a typical human experience.”
Although these images are”universal”, they’re transformed and re-worked. Thereby, given a unique expression based on cultural influence. Archetypes represent patterns of behavior and models of people, which can reach us through a myriad of ways. Symbols, dreams, myths, art and music are just the tip of the iceberg of how these images permeate our consciousness.
Astrologically, our birth charts are infused with the energy and imprint of these archetypes in their own unique pattern. The recognition of how these forces are organized within our psyche is one of the keys to how we can realize and fulfill our deepest potentials; how we can actualize our most authentic nature.
