Maybe I am. We’re about a week away from the “Great American Eclipse” and it seems I’ll be writing a lot about it. I had not given the eclipse much thought, until I started reading about it in the media and encountering the general interest in it around me. Then I realized that the shadow’s transit would go directly over my current residence of Columbia, SC (see the graphic header of my last journal entry). I’ve read and reviewed a couple of books that concern the eclipse, and I’m anticipating the event myself.
One of the books I read and reviewed is John Hogue’s Worldwide Astrological Predictions for the Real New Year: Sprint 2017 to Spring 2018. Mr. Hogue talks a lot about the eclipse in that book, seeing it as a presage for coming tumults both natural and political. He recently put out a companion book that is specifically about the eclipse. It is The Great American Eclipse: Earthquake and Tsunami. I’ve also reviewed this book.
So will this eclipse be the supernatural herald to apocalyptic events? Maybe. It depends, I think, upon how you define “supernatural.” From my readings, I see this eclipse as another presage, or marker, of tumultuous times. I don’t see it as a message from God or the Devil, but maybe one from the numinous, nonetheless. Indeed, I think the eclipse can be viewed as a marker like the turning of the millennium or the passing of 12/21/2012. It likely marks an “end time,” whether that be the end of an era, or of everything.
Any significant natural event like this eclipse, can be seen as an underscore to the growing disorder around us. There is an unease among people that leaves them grasping for answers and comfort. The fragility of the global status makes them look for leadership from a strong-man or the intervention of the divine. The truth of our situation is conceivable, however. It is a cause-and-effect scenario that many thinkers have pointed out. In his new, Mr. Hogue sums it up as:
America could have ignored the climate signs and sank deeper into its fossil fuel addiction, postponing economic rehab for years and procrastinating until it seeks industrial rehab too late to restore Earth’s climate, grown too warm and unstable. (Hogue, John. Great American Eclipse: Earthquake and Tsunami, Kindle Locations 795-799. HogueProphecy Publishing. Kindle Edition.)
In the midst of apocalypse, I live as if in normal times where God is in His heaven and all is OK. I’ll be working on Eclipse Day (Aug 21). I hope to be able to break long enough to step outside and observe the passing totality. Of course, I expect everyone in my building will do that as well. If the weather-controllers allow, and the chemtrail haze is light enough, we’ll all see a rare astronomical event. In the natural world, it’s a wonderful event. Only human perverseness corrupts it into an evil omen.
The main premise of Mr. Hogue’s eclipse book is that solar eclipses have a history of presaging earthquakes. Where the shadow passes fault-lines, earthquakes are often unleashed in the following few months or years. This one will cross four major fault-lines in the continental US. One runs close to Charleston, SC, which is not far from me. That city was hit by a major quake in 1886 and damage extended 60 miles from the epicenter. We’re well beyond that radius. Even so, we’re directly beneath the point of 100% totality. Might be a good idea to google “earthquake survival kits.”
