The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has traditionally been in the 'western' camp. It is politically attached to the United Kingdom and the United States as well as to Saudi Arabia and other Sunni majority Gulf states. The Jordanian King Abdullah II has in the past been hostile to Iran. He was to first to publicly stoke fear of a 'Shia crescent'. But the new Saudi and U.S. plans for 'peace' with Israel are a threat to Jordan and to King Abdullah's personal legitimacy. He needs to change his position. Provided with the right incentives Jordan could, eventually, join the 'resistance' side with Iran, Syria and Hizbullah. http://www.moonofalabama.org/
Eclipses tend to bring about endings and new beginnings. They offer a time to resynchronize our selves with the ever-changing cosmic currents supporting our evolutionary progression in consciousness. The upcoming solar eclipse of July 13, 2018 at Amman, Jordan is very significantly placed on the Ascendant opposite Pluto on the descendant and square the TNP Zeus.
Pluto-Zeus: to dominate, threaten or confront others.
The eclipse is also conjunct the midpoints Hades-Vulcanus and Kronos-Vulcanus.
Hades-Vulkanus-Kronos: to be forced into humbling or embarrassing circumstances by influential leaders.
Essentially, the eclipse highlights Pluto which inspires and demands the expression of a greater integrity and truth in our relations. It forces relationships to mature, and thus to either break apart; restructure; or form anew.
This sums up what King Abdullah of Jordan faces because of the actions of his powerful benefactors – US and Saudi Arabia.
Finally, we take a peek at the chart of Jordan . Notice that the eclipse will take place on its radix Saturn re-energizing the current Pluto transit opposite its Saturn.
The following passage from Steven Forrest’s The Book of Pluto applies:
Astrologer Grant Lewi, decades ago began to speak of Saturn as “the cosmic paycheck”. His implication was that under passing Saturn symbolism, we would all "get what we deserve". That phrase – “get what we deserve” is something of an inkblot test. Some of us may hear it ominously, others encouragingly. And both possibilities are on the radar screen when Pluto links to Saturn.…what if we have been overindulging in denial, projection and laziness? What kind of paycheck can we expect then? Here we see the dark side of Pluto-Saturn possibilities. Our worst fears come true. The one thing we couldn’t handle looms in our face.
