In his now famous research Michel Gauquelin showed that planets within 10 degrees on either side of the Ascendant and Midheaven were extremely powerful . In the US Sibly, Neptune [22vi25] falls in the Gauquelin sector. Since the 10th house of a national chart indicates the leaders of a country, Neptune here is telling us something about the leaders. Moreover, it is conjunct the star Alkaid [23vi46], eta (η) Ursa Major. About this star Nick Fiorenza writes:
Alkaid is the Arabic name for Benetnash , and means "the leader," perhaps alluding to its tendency to produce self-proclaimed leaders. Benetnash expresses the old dictatorial and totalitarian stream of consciousness that was predominant when Earth's polar alignment was tilted (had fallen) furthest from the galactic plane in Earth's great precessional year (about 6000 years ago). Thus Benetnash is of this long-established totalitarian governing paradigm—generally of a patriarchal nature. Benetnash articulates the administrative aspects of governments and the political-religious factions of big-business and their figureheads.
Benetnash ultimately teaches that leadership is about facilitating the self-empowerment and freedom of others rather than about exerting manipulative force that controls and destroys others, mistaken as leadership and being in a position of power.
In its old form and when expressing with influence of the stars of late Leo (the tail of the Lion, the racket of Canes Venatici and the hot air of Antilia), Benetnash articulates those who tend to act as manipulating and controlling godheads, which perpetuates a dogmatic societal structure that keeps individuals from becoming self-responsible and from evolving into their own self-mastery. It is of leadership that dictates what is right for people and what they should do by using dramatic and diversionary propaganda, rather than supporting others to make their own choices in freedom. It can be of the self-proclaimed saviors of the world who try to amass their blind followers for their own interest in maintaining a position of power and wealth. The days of dictators, gurus and followings, perhaps at one time served the sleeping masses, but they are now manipulative and suppressive to the emergence of a new soul-aware consciousness on Earth.
When expressing with more of Virgo's influence (and the stars of Coma Berenices, Crater, and Velorum), and for the more mature and spiritually awakened, Benetnash incites leadership that provides opportunity for people to live in the freedom of their own choices and to become self-empowered, and to awaken in consciousness rather than acquiescing as blind followers.
Next we note that the Full Moon lunar eclipse has the Sun conjunct the Sibly Neptune and the star Benetnash. The Full Moon marks the culmination point in the lunar cycle, It is time for the realization of the lunar month’s theme set by the New Moon a time to allow our realizations to surface in consciousness. The New Moon of September 1 in the current lunar cycle was a solar eclipse. Nick Fiorenza in his post on the lunar month entitled “New Directions” writes:
This New Moon eclipse lies in the midst of the stars of Leo and under the auspices of Thuban of Draco and Alioth of the Great Bear. It also conjoins the stars of the Sextant, and Suhail Velorum of Argo Navis in the very southern heavens. The stars in this area of the heavens are about personal and global leadership, transcendent evolutionary currents, and the use of personal will to direct our evolutionary course with impetus to reassess changing conditions and to change our tack in life accordingly to reach our desired destinations.
Simply put the lunar eclipse activating the US Sibly Neptune is asking people to change tack and move away from manipulative leaders. The square of Mars to Neptune tells us that these are leaders who are likely to take the nation into wars which one may consider highly "Neptunian" in that these wars seems based on misconceptions and a good deal of deceit. Moreover, in the sphere of health Mars-Neptune is lack of energy or ill health. Neptune in the health sign Virgo is square Mars in Gemini. Max Heindel in his The Message of the Stars writes:
Mars in Gemini gives a tendency to hemorrhage of the lungs, pneumonia, bronchitis and cough.
No prizes for guessing the name of a current leader suffering from some of these problems.
Is the eclipse asking the US populace to move away from these kind of leaders?
PS: In a previous post  we discussed the death of the dictator Karimov in early September. A chart for the upcoming lunar eclipse at Tashkent, Uzbekistan has the luminaries aligned with the meridian. This is a confirmation that this eclipse is about the end of manipulative authority figures!
