August 1st 2008 Total Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees Leo visible from Europe NE N. America, Asia
[Total: north Canada, Greenland, Siberia, Mongolia, China]. Central eclipse 10-21 GMT
August 16th 2008 Partial lunar eclipse at 25 degrees Aquarius at 22-10 GMT.
November 4, 2008: Election day in the U.S. sees an exact opposition of Saturn and Uranus at 18 58' Virgo-Pisces (the solar eclipse degree of September 2007). This is the first opposition of the cycle that started with their conjunction in 1988 (at 29° Sagittarius).
There are a total of 6 eclipses in 2009.
2009: The entire year of 2009 features a Chiron-Neptune conjunction in late degrees of Aquarius, exact in February 2010 at 26° Aquarius; this is the first conjunction of these two since September 1945. Jupiter joins Chiron and Neptune in mid December 2009, with an opposing Mars turning retrograde in Leo. Whoever is elected U.S. president in 2008 might now undertake an emergency mobilisation of alternative energy production, if the problem has continued to be swept under the rug.
January 5th 2009 Jupiter enters Aquarius.
January 26th 2009 Annular eclipse of the Sun at 6 degrees Aquarius. Central eclipse 07-59 GMT. This eclipse is visible from the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, Borneo, the East Indies, and the eastern Pacific.
Feb. 9th 2009 Penumbral lunar eclipse at 21 degrees Leo at 15-38 GMT
May 27th 2009 Jupiter conjunct Neptune 26 degrees Aquarius. First of 3.
July 7th 2009 Penumbral lunar eclipse 09-39 GMT at 16 degrees Capricorn
July 10th 2009 Jupiter conjunct Neptune 26 degrees Aquarius. Second of 3.
July 22nd 2009 Total Solar Eclipse 02-35 GMT at 29 degrees Cancer. Long, lasts 6m 39s. Visible from East Asia, Pacific Ocean, Hawaii [Total: India, Nepal, China, c Pacific] Central eclipse at 02-35 GMT
August 6th 2009 Penumbral lunar eclipse 01-39 GMT at 14 degrees Aquarius. October 21st 2009 The Moon occults Antares. Visible from the UK
October 29th 2009 Saturn first enters Libra. This residence of Saturn in Libra will bring about very dynamic planetary effects during the period 2010-2011. These few years ahead will most probably have very serious global consequences.
November 15, 2009: The most powerful configurations are beginning. Saturn squares Pluto at 1° 42' Libra-Capricorn, while the Moon and Venus join Neptune and Pluto in a septile pattern. The Sun septiles Saturn as well. Public fears of terrorism or war are accentuated at this time. This Saturn-Pluto square repeats on January 31, 2010 and again in August 2010. These are key dates in terms of oil shortages, oil price hikes, and international co-operation (or lack thereof). The increased use of coal raises new concerns about air pollution and accelerated global warming.
December 21st 2009 Jupiter conjunct Neptune 24 degrees Aquarius. Final of 3.
December 31st 2009 Partial Lunar Eclipse 19:23 GMT at 10 degrees Cancer.
January 1st 2010 Mars in Opposition.
January 15th 2010 Very long Annular Solar Eclipse (7m 6s) at 25 degrees Capricorn, visible from central and east Africa, the southern tip of India and Sri Lanka, Burma and China
January 18th Jupiter enters Pisces
May 28th 2010 Uranus first enters Aries.
June 5-6, 2010: Things really heat up starting in mid May, as Saturn opposes Jupiter and Uranus. Then, Uranus enters Aries and, a few days later, is joined by the Moon and Jupiter at exactly 0° Aries. Meanwhile, Pluto is at 4°+ Capricorn and Saturn is at 28° Virgo, forming a T-square with the Moon, Jupiter, and Uranus. Mars at 29°+ Leo (conjunct Regulus) opposes Neptune and Chiron. This seems to me to have the potential for a major popular movement (at best) or an armed revolt (at worst). The key is to channel all this energy in constructive ways.
June 6th 2010 Jupiter first enters Aries
June 8th 2010 Jupiter conjunct Uranus 0 degrees Aries, first of 3.
June 26, 2010 Partial lunar eclipse at 5 degrees Capricorn. Central eclipse 11:39 GMT.
The lunar eclipse at 4° + Capricorn conjoins Pluto and activates a grand cross involving the Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, the Moon, and Saturn
July 11th 2010 Total Solar eclipse at 19 degrees Cancer 19-33 GMT Visible from South America [Total: South Pacific, Easter Is., Chile, Argentina].
July 30-31, 2010: This marks another intense few days. Mars joins Saturn at 0° 49' Libra, opposing the Moon, Jupiter, and Uranus in Aries and squared by Pluto. Again, large masses of people may be affected by so much planetary energy concentrated near the cardinal points. Since cardinal signs are action-related, there may be a lot of people on the move (demonstrators, troops, refugees). The Mars-Saturn conjunction is on the Mid heaven in Indonesia, China, and the South China
August 6-7, 2010: A cardinal grand cross is formed, involving Jupiter-Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, the Moon in early Cancer, and Venus joining Mars and Saturn in early Libra. The Sun at 15° Leo makes stressful aspects (45°/135°) to the entire grand cross. We'll need to remain calm and balanced to deal with the relentlessly stressful aspects this summer
September 9th 2010 Jupiter retrogrades back into Pisces
Sept. 19th 2010 Jupiter conjunct Uranus 29 degrees Pisces second of 3.
December 13, 2010: Conditions will have eased up a bit in terms of the cardinal cross, but on this date there is a tight conjunction of Mercury, Mars, and Pluto at 4° Capricorn septile Neptune-Chiron at 26° + Aquarius
December 21st 2010. Total Eclipse of the Moon in Gemini on the day before the Winter Solstice. Totally eclipsed Moon sets over Europe. (A Total Eclipse of the Moon, occurs within 6 hours of the Winter Solstice moment occurs on December 20th 2029). Central eclipse 08:l7 GMT.
There are a total of 6 eclipses in 2011
Jan 4th 2011 Jupiter conjunct Uranus 27 degrees Pisces. Partial solar eclipse 08:51 GMT at 14 degrees Capricorn.
Jan 22nd 2011 Jupiter re-enters Aries.
April 4th 2011 Neptune first enters Pisces.
April 9, 2011: Uranus is at 0° declination; the last time this happened was in 1968-69. Pluto stations retrograde at 7° 30' Capricorn. The Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter in Aries oppose Saturn in Libra. Neptune has just moved into Pisces. Spiritual renewal and new ideas challenge outmoded structures. Radical new laws are passed and political movements reach critical mass this year. A growing optimism spreads as the energy of the Neptune-Pluto septile winds down.
April 29th 2011 Five planets and the Moon lie within 20 degrees of each other.
June 1st 2011 Partial lunar eclipse 11 degrees Gemini. Central eclipse 21:16 GMT.

July 1st 2011 Partial Solar Eclipse at 9 degrees Cancer. Central eclipse 08:38 GMT
November 14th/16th 2011 Saturn conjunct Spica (1st of 3)
November 25th 2011 Partial Solar Eclipse 3 degrees Sagittarius. Central eclipse 06:20 GMT.
Dec. 10th 2011 Total Lunar Eclipse at 19 degrees Gemini 15-32 GMT
2012: Uranus squares Pluto at 7° - 8° of cardinal signs. This is the waxing square of the cycle that started in the mid 1960s, with the conjunction of these two planets in mid Virgo. This square is a symbol of innovation competing directly with the entrenched power elite (corporate power may be challenged in a new and positive way, especially in a U.S. election year).
March 16th 2012. A lunar occultation of Pluto occurs today. This is the first anywhere on Earth since January 19th 1935. They will occur every month now from today upto August 17th 2013.
May 11th 2012 Saturn conjunct Spica (2nd time)

June 6th 2012 Transit of Venus across the disc of the Sun.
June 11th 2012 Jupiter enters Gemini.
July 15th 2012 Lunar grazing occultation of Jupiter (visible from the UK with a clear horizon ) 02-00 GMT.

November 14th 2012 The Moon occults Mercury (daylight occultation visible from the UK with a telescope) .
November 28th 2012 Penumbral lunar eclipse 7 degrees Gemini. Central eclipse 15:33 GMT
December 21st, 2012 A.D., represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), what that ancient Maya recognised as the Sacred Tree. This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years. It will come to resolution at exactly 11:11 am GMT
