Reflecting on October 2014: Mars-Ruled Eclipse Cycle

Reflecting on October 2014: Mars-Ruled Eclipse Cycle

Ebola, Malala, Kim Jong-Un, Serial Killers + Drug Lords

Video and Transcript Published Wednesday April 19, 2023

Both upcoming eclipses on April 20 and May 5, 2023, are ruled by Mars. The last time we had two consecutive Eclipses that were ruled by Mars like this was Autumn of 2014. Let’s take a look at some of the current events from that period and see if any of those themes get reflected or repeated for Spring 2023.

The first thing I noticed was a major theme about the Ebola virus development. Ebola virus results in inflammation that causes internal bleeding. Mars is the planet that rules inflammation and blood so that’s very fitting for the Medical Astrology. October 8th, 2014, the day of the Aries Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, was the first death of someone diagnosed in the USA. The following day, October 9th, they began experimental vaccine trials in Africa. Then October 11th was the first person testing positive who got infected within the USA.

It turns out that the CDC just issued a health advisory warning [in early April 2023] for an overseas outbreak of Marburg virus, which–just like Ebola–is a disease that results in the hemorrhaging of blood. So, of course I hope this doesn’t really go anywhere, but seeing all of the Ebola timeline line up with the 2014 eclipse cycle, and then this cousin of Ebola turning up just in time for this Mars-ruled eclipse cycle… I had to bring it up.

Back to 2014: October 9th was also the day that Malala was awarded her Nobel Peace Prize. She shared the award with children’s rights advocate Kailash Satyarthi. It would be interesting if we saw some Malala related news in the next two weeks (April 20 - May 5, 2023). It’s also very interesting to think about the context of Mars as the ruler of violence and war. The fact that she was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize after she was shot in the head for defending education rights is like the least peaceful way to win a peace prize.

This made me smile: On October 19, 2014, the Comet “Siding Spring” made a fly-by to planet Mars, just missing by 140,000 kilometers.

During the two-week eclipse period in 2014, there were actually a couple of different serial killers apprehended. Thiago Henrique Gomes da Rocha, who supposedly killed 39 people over a three year period, was arrested October 16, 2014. He targeted the girls, the gays, and the homeless.

Along with Mexican drug lord Vicente Carrillo Fuentes being captured in Torreon on October 9, 2014. I think it would be interesting if we see a serial killer or killers get caught over the next couple of weeks, especially closer to the May 5th Scorpio Lunar Eclipse, since Scorpio is the sign that rules death.

One last thing which is kind of random: Kim Jong-Un was apparently noticed to be limping and suspected of being in ill-health during the summer of 2014. Then, in September, he disappeared and wasn’t seen again until October 14, 2014 (during that eclipse season). So it’s very possible we might see this man [Kim Jong-Un] in a significant headline over the next few weeks, especially related to his health or wellbeing.
