More than 14,000 Saudi women signed a petition to the kingdom's Royal Court in an effort to end the internationally criticized system. Rights Watch reported Saturday that women's rights activists in the kingdom initiated a Twitter campaign to support the move, trending such hashtags as #StopEnslavingSaudiWomen, #IAmMyOwnGuardian and #TogetherToEndMaleGuardianship. Additionally, activists used social media to spread instructions on how to submit a telegram calling on the king to comply with their demands. Sept.27
The solar eclipse of September 1 synchronizes with the Lunar Perigee making this lunar cycle more impactive. Moreover at Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia it falls on the meridian as part of a powerful T-square.
In his blogpost on the eclipse entitled New Directions, Nick Fiorenza writes:
Solar eclipses offer opportunity to redefine concepts of self and the roles we play in the world, or how we articulate ourselves in life. They are about shifting octaves in the nature of our self-perception and self-expression, and addressing issues that keep us from doing so. They can invite a new beginning, way of life, or new way of participating in life.
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
Thuban of Draco, in the far northern heavens, just north of Alioth of the Great Bear, was Earth’s pole star circa 2800 BCE, a point in Earth’s ~25,000-year “evolutionary cycle of the soul” at which time a turning and fractioning occurred in the hierarchical powers governing Earth. This dramatized the separation between those choosing to fight for a greater evolutionary vision and those wanting to maintain totalitarian control of the Earth.
Alioth of Ursa Major, star of personal free will, conjoins Thuban. Alignments with Alioth teach us responsible use of free will and that our personal actions can alter the evolutionary currents that create our souls’ evolutionary destiny. Alioth stimulates the use of personal will and our need to initiate personal action. Alioth is one of the classical seven rays of the Great Bear teaching incarnating souls the ramifications of the use of personal power and how it effects more than self and extends far beyond the punctual moment.
In connection with the news, the above extract needs no commentary. The women of Saudi Arabia who have long suffered under a patriarchal and authoritarian male dominated society are asking for their freedom. Notice that Uranus [24ar] aspects the eclipse. Here it is conjunct stars in constellation of the dictatorial King Cepheus and his daughter Princess Andromeda depicted in chains. Since a keyword for Uranus is freedom, it is no surprise that the women in Saudi Arabia are now approaching the King demanding their freedom.
