The following is the contemporary natal map of Germany. While it illustrates many attributes of this nation’s heart and soul, what we are really interested in for this edition of our newsletter is the natal Moon, located at precisely the degree of our current eclipse. While falling at 18 degrees and fifty-nine minutes of Pisces in the 9th house, it rules the 12th house (Cancer on the cusp).
The immigrant issue is naturally what comes to the fore when examining the archetypes of the chart. Fortunately, the basic aspects to this Moon are positive. A trine to Pluto and sextile to Saturn are top of the list, suggesting a conviction of will, positive administrative leadership and ample resources to get the job done. An opposition to Ceres falls on more neutral ground, suggesting that there can be differences of opinions in Germany’s willingness to nurture others who are perceived to be not of the same background. Finally, the Moon’s inconjunct to Pallas Athena suggests that the emotional reaction to outsiders may not always sit real well with the rank and file. Their gut reaction may be defensive, possibly even antagonistic, when issues involving their national pride are evoked.
However the alignments of this chart works, the solar eclipse right on their national Moon suggests an eruption of national sentiment over the days and months ahead. Unlike other aspects, remember that solar eclipses can take up to a full year for their influences to manifest, while lunar eclipses take up to a month.
