Now, it was mentioned that there were several unusual features to this eclipse, and those
features revolve mainly around Saturn. It is not the usual course of things that Saturn ‘closes’
an eclipse, because Saturn moves so slowly. With this one, however, Saturn is retrograde at
the time of the eclipse, and it will ‘close’ the eclipse within a few short months. There will be
many lessons around ego with this eclipse, and many decisions made as a result. The Sun and
Saturn in combination, especially in tense aspect (conjunction, square or opposition, as in this
case) are known for a propensity to produce struggle and tensions in one’s life. Saturn highlights
ego structures, restrictions and sensitivities (fears), whereas the Sun is one’s vital force and
natural ebullience—quite at odds with the structuring, restrictive force of Saturn. Money and
worldly matters are always a concern when Sun/Saturn combinations are found in a chart, espe-
cially if Saturn is retrograde, as it is here. The Sun/Saturn opposition here can bring feelings of entrapment, anger, despair or frustration—perhaps all of those feelings. The thing about this
eclipse, though, is that we will somehow be called or impelled toward liberation from such feelings. Hence, the theme of the symbol for the lunar degree becomes quite important in this regard and
points to, as Dane Rudhyar has described it, some sort of liberating ordeal, with the result being
that we would have gained a lot of wisdom and compassion for having gone through the experience.

In the eclipse/full moon figure, the Moon is at the midpoint of the South Node and Saturn, all con-
junct by translation of light. This combination is not considered to be a particularly happy one, especially since the South Node and Saturn are involved. The overall key words for the combi-
nation are feelings of inhibition, loneliness, a person standing alone in life and depression. On the
other side of the coin, this combination can also bring with it a profound sense of wisdom and
maturity and a heightened sense of responsibility, which can all be very good so long as there
is no sense of guilt involved with that sense of responsibility. Saturn makes two ‘hits’ of the
eclipse point by transit —the first on the 20th of April (retrograde) and the second on the 16th
of May (direct). However, the activation of the eclipse point by Saturn will cover the time span
of roughly mid-March through the first week of June. Cheers, folks! The last ‘hit’ will bring a final
event or decision regarding whatever situation in which one is involved at the time of the eclipse dynamic. This eclipse is all about emotional realities and freeing ourselves from emotionally re-
stricting circumstances. There is also a strong sense of finality and fate around this eclipse, as
is indicated by Saturn.
