This month's newletter is about the current interplay between the recent total lunar eclipse, the star Regulus, and Saturn and Mars. As ever, Bernadette Brady cites previous times in history when the sky pattern was the same. She begins:
"A strong King employs a henchman to remove a threat,
and the weather turns cold and wet….
In the last month, Regulus, the great king star, has been joined by Saturn, the planet of the king. With Regulus located on the ecliptic, this sky event occurs every 29 years, plus or minus some months. But this year it has been a little different, for several reasons. Firstly, Mars has moved into the position in the sky where it rides between the horns of the Great Bull of Heaven, Taurus, and while these two events have been happening in the sky, parts of the world have had a spectacular total lunar eclipse.
Nergal (Mars) rides the Great Bull of Heaven - Taurus
So let’s unpack this sky story..."
The strong King (Saturn/Regulus) employing a henchman (Mars) to remove a threat has obvious connections with the upcoming report on the Iraq War by General Petraeus, which George Bush hopes will save his bacon.
