To understand this news we will go back to the solar eclipse of March 9, 2016. At Bonn the eclipse along with its T-square straddles the horizon axis which makes it significant for the place. Moreover it is placed in the third house which deals with all matters of communication which would include a meeting to discuss ideas. The following extract from Nick Fiorenza explains the energy driving this eclipse:
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.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs amongst the flowing waters dispensed from the Urn of Aquarius. It also conjoins Fum al Samakah, the mouth of the primordial fish, and it lies under the auspices of Pegasus, between Homam and Markab, and over the Phoenix, a sign of renewal, rising from the ashes.
This South Node Solar Eclipse T-Square, and this lunar cycle, creates a powerful force to let go of constructs in our lives that no longer provide room for growth, movement and expansion. In other words, we have grown as far as the limits imposed by those constructs have permitted. It is now time to either begin to change those constructs so they can allow a greater level of growth, expansion and fulfillment, or to dismantle those constructs all together.
If we now progress the eclipse chart to Feb. 16, the date of the meeting between Lavrov and Tillerson we notice that the progressed Ascendant reaches a conjunction to the eclipse triggering its potential. The extract above makes it clear that the solar eclipse is offering an opportunity for renewal or healing of the relationship between Russia and US which has worsened in the last several years.
