midpoint of a trine between his progressed Jupiter at

20 Aries 14R and his natal Jupiter at 22 Aries 34R

4. Transiting Mars at 01 Pisces 30 conjoins transiting

Neptune at 2 Pisces 10, and both go on to trine his

progressed Mars at 03 Scorpio 11. 

5.Transiting Venus at 02 Aquarius 20 tines his natal

south node at 00 Libra 15R, (could bring him a Super

Bowl ring) although, at the same time, it squares his

progressed Mars at 03 Scorpio 11.

6. Progressed Pluto (his Sun sign ruler) at 10 Scorpio

56 has moved up to conjoin his natal Sun at 10

Scorpio 47 and sextiles transiting Pluto at 10

Capricorn 28.

7.Transiting Saturn at 11 Scorpio 20 is still working,

and has been strengthening that sextile recently also.

It is interesting to see that natally Flacco has Jupiter

conjunct his Sun in Capricorn by one degree and

Kaepernick has Pluto in Scorpio conjunct his Sun by

one degree. This ties into Joe having a tight knit

relationship with his very Italian (Jupiter) family. And

Kaepernick was adopted, which I feel, relates to to his

Scorpio conjunction.

I think that progressed Uranus will keep doing its

magic, plus with all of the other favorable aspects

working that day for Kaepernick, I think the 49er's are

going to win!

Another odd thing is that two coaches that happen to

brothers will be pitted against each other. How Uranian

is that?

This eclipse makes an important and interesting aspect in the U.S. chart I follow, which is the one for the signing of the Articles  of Confederation ..November 15, 1777 at 12:45 ..York Pennsylvania.

The eclipse at 8 Taurus 52 in the U.S. 2nd house of money closely opposes the natal and progressed U.S.  Saturn in another financial house. Also involved is the opposition is U.S. Mercury at 9 Scorpio 43.. by only 9 minutes of arc. No doubt there will be some important monetary issues coming to the forefront soon.

This is reminiscent of the great depression, when in 1933, on March 6th, President Roosevelt called for a bank holiday, and closed 5,000 banks temporarily . Progressed U.S. Mercury came up to 9 Taurus 31 then to opposes these aforementioned U.S. planets.

Natal U.S. Pluto is T-squared by the transiting Nodes which reiterates financial problems. Furthermore, the progressed U.S. Moon just inside the 12th house will be squaring the U.S. Venus  in the coming year.

We know that China is dumping American dollars and buying huge amounts of gold. It is interesting that right at the time of  the Eclipse, a financial author was a guest on the radio show..Coast to Coast. He was James Rickards who discussed his new book Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis. He reminded us that  In 1971, President Nixon imposed national price controls and took the United States off the gold standard, an extreme measure intended to end an ongoing currency war that had destroyed faith in the U.S. dollar. Today we are engaged in a new currency war, and this time the consequences will be far worse than those that confronted Nixon.

Currency wars are one of the most destructive and feared outcomes in international economics. At best, they offer the sorry spectacle of countries' stealing growth from their trading partners. At worst, they degenerate into sequential bouts of inflation, recession, retaliation, and sometimes actual violence. Left unchecked, the next currency war could lead to a crisis worse than the panic of 2008.

Currency wars have happened before-twice in the last century alone-and they always end badly. Time and again, paper currencies have collapsed, assets have been frozen, gold has been confiscated, and capital controls have been imposed. And the next crash is overdue. Recent headlines about the debasement of the dollar, bailouts in Greece and Ireland, and Chinese currency manipulation are all indicators of the growing conflict.

As James Rickards argues in Currency Wars, this is more than just a concern for economists and investors. The United States is facing serious threats to its national security, from clandestine gold purchases by China to the hidden agendas of sovereign wealth funds. Greater than any single threat is the very real danger of the collapse of the dollar itself.

Baffling to many observers is the rank failure of economists to foresee or prevent the economic catastrophes of recent years. Not only have their theories failed to prevent calamity, they are making the currency wars worse. The U. S. Federal Reserve has engaged in the greatest gamble in the history of finance, a sustained effort to stimulate the economy by printing money on a trillion-dollar scale. Its solutions present hidden new dangers while resolving none of the current dilemmas.

While the outcome of the new currency war is not yet certain, some version of the worst-case scenario is almost inevitable if U.S. and world economic leaders fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors. Rickards untangles the web of failed paradigms, wishful thinking, and arrogance driving current public policy and points the way toward a more informed and effective course of action.

In his other book The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System..He says that  "The next financial collapse will resemble nothing in history. . . . Deciding upon the best course to follow will require comprehending a minefield of risks, while poised at a crossroads, pondering the death of the dollar.”

The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years, in 1914, 1939, and 1971. Each collapse was followed by a period of tumult: war, civil unrest, or significant damage to the stability of the global economy. Now James Rickards, the acclaimed author of Currency Wars, shows why another collapse is rapidly approaching—and why this time, nothing less than the institution of money itself is at risk.

The American dollar has been the global reserve currency since the end of the Second World War. If the dollar fails, the entire international monetary system will fail with it. No other currency has the deep, liquid pools of assets needed to do the job.

Optimists have always said, in essence, that there’s nothing to worry about—that confidence in the dollar will never truly be shaken, no matter how high our national debt or how dysfunctional our government. But in the last few years, the risks have become too big to ignore. While Washington is gridlocked and unable to make progress on our long-term problems, our biggest economic competitors—China, Russia, and the oil producing nations of the Middle East—are doing everything possible to end U.S. monetary hegemony. The potential results: Financial warfare. Deflation. Hyperinflation. Market collapse. Chaos.

Rickards offers a bracing analysis of these and other threats to the dollar. The fundamental problem is that money and wealth have become more and more detached. Money is transitory and ephemeral, and it may soon be worthless if central bankers and politicians continue on their current path. But true wealth is permanent and tangible, and it has real value worldwide.

The author shows how everyday citizens who save and invest have become guinea pigs in the central bankers’ laboratory. The world’s major financial players—national governments, big banks, multilateral institutions—will always muddle through by patching together new rules of the
game. The real victims of the next crisis will be small investors who assumed that what worked for decades will keep working.

Fortunately, it’s not too late to prepare for the coming death of money. Rickards explains the power of converting unreliable money into real wealth: gold, land, fine art, and other long-term stores of value. As he writes: “The coming collapse of the dollar and the international monetary system is entirely foreseeable. . . . Only nations and individuals who make provision today will survive the maelstrom to come.

The aspects this Eclipse and the other stressful aspects makes in the U.S. chart certainly supports James Rickards theories!
