This is "A Total Eclipse of the Moon," there will be another one corresponding to this one on Sukkot, six months from now. In the case of tonight's Eclipse, it's more like a "Total Eclipse of the Heart," as darkness covers light for a time, making opaque what was once clear, straining our faith and, best case scenario, strengthening it - or altogether changing it, aligning to our inner truth and recalibrating to what is right NOW.

The truth is, the Eclipse and this Cardinal Cross happens in everybody's Natal Chart, you just have to know where to know how it might be reflected in your personal circumstances.
Remember, Israel is "Above the Zodiac." Knowledge is power, and self-knowledge is the only way to inner freedom - to know one's self is to know how you were "fearfully and wonderfully made" by our Creator. That's why Astrolojew loves to do your Natal Chart with you - to show you what your G*d-given wiring system looks like, and how best to use it.
