Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Look Skyward: Eclipse of the Flower Moon

There is a partial lunar eclipse this evening, which will primarily be visible from the Pacific Ocean. These are the times when it will be visible:
  • 4 June 4:12 am in Los Angeles
  • 4 June 7:12 am in New York
  • 4 June 12:12 pm in London
  • 4 June 4:42 pm in Delhi
  • 4 June 9:12 pm in Sydney
Space.com explains (here) how the moon will dip through Earth's shadow and elaborates on the usual symbolic importance of this Full Moon:
The Full Moon of June is usually called the Flower Moon. In Algonquian it is called Strawberry Moon. Other names are Honey Moon, Rose Moon, Hot Moon, and Planting Moon. In Hindi it is known as Wat Poornima. Its Sinhala (Buddhist) name is Poson. The Full Moon rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long. The rest of the month, the Moon spends at least some time in the daytime sky.

For those who believe in the symbolic power of astronomical events, the impact of the eclipse will be felt mainly in Hong Kong and Singapore, China and Malaysia.

Astrologer Peter Stockinger claims that the eclipse will affect Germany, Italy, France and Norway and intreprets this aspect in terms of trouble for the European Union:
This can be interpreted as a pointer towards the ongoing deepening of the eurozone crisis. It may as well be worth noting that London is not afflicted, making room for speculations that there may be a further distancing between Britain and the member states of the EU.
On a personal level, Stockinger suggests that Sagittariuses will be affected most strongly by this eclipse.

Astrologers believe this eclipse is celestial sign of momentous personal change, and of change in the world. Hence for Aurum Astrology, the eclipse signifies letting go of the past and building the future:
An eclipse marks the end of old patterns. The last one was close to the South Node, which is also about releasing old patterns.

A Full Moon brings the energy of the last New Moon to a peak, or to fruition. A Full Moon Eclipse brings us to a peak then releases that energy in a big way.
Dark Star Astrology contends that this is an eclipse that unearths unbalanced romances:
The lunar eclipse on June 4 2012 is at 14º Sagittarius 13’ and in constellation Hercules the kneeling man. We have an interesting T-square to Mars, while the Sun is conjunct Venus. This is an eclipse for lovers and passionate three-way trysts. ... The lunar eclipse reminds us the enlightened ones are not immune to earthly desires or protected from natures foibles. ...

Moon square Mars “ brings such intense feelings and moods to crisis point, so these people more than most, need to vent this great energy into some project …This could manifest in a variety of ways; starting at the most base level would be sexual conquesting.” ...

I think Mars’s interception of this Lunar eclipse could actually be quite beneficial. Mars and Venus work best as a team, each one tempering the others negative expression. They are complimentary. The only difficulty is that they are in square aspect. But squares should not be feared, they are dynamic and productive. This lunar eclipse T square could be very good for relationships that have fallen into a rut. ...

This lunar eclipse chart looks like a battle of the sexes or a battle with ones own sexual cravings. “Chaos in your chart will show where you have to fight your most difficult battle. It could be your greatest temptation, or addiction and it will be the one thing that gets you every time..” Or it could be the one person who gets you every time. ...

This is a pretty dramatic T-square and I can also see the issues of uncovering deceptive behaviour in love relationships ... . I think this eclipse will bring to a head triangular love relationships that are about to snap. The third entity could also be an obsessive hobby, demanding job, a difficult child, a destructive drug habit or a jealous best friend.
