The quick answer: yes, yes it is…
I have written before in various places on my site that I believed one of the consequences of the Great American Eclipse of August 21st would be a subsequent natural disaster on American soil. I also believed – and still do – that such a disaster would test the leadership qualities of elected American officials and politicians. (ETA: Remember how politicians handled Hurricane Katrina? How do you think current politicians would handle such a catastrophe?)
Welcome Hurricane Harvey, a category 3 (ETA: as of late Friday, a category 4!) hurricane currently in the Gulf Coast and expected to make landfall late Friday in Texas with potentially life threatening floods. From an astrological perspective, I’m concerned that there’s even worse destructive potential behind this hurricane than what we see and know now. Not just how rapidly it has gained strength and so soon after an incredibly potent total eclipse that seen its eclipse shadow fall across America, coast to coast. But, this weekend will have a Scorpio Moon.
Scorpio squares the signs of Aquarius and Leo, the signs both of the August eclipses occurred in. This weekends Scorpio Moon will be the first lunar event to “trigger” the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse at 28 degrees Leo aka the Great American Eclipse. Quite often eclipses don’t fully show their full potential until another planetary body “triggers” them by aspecting the eclipse degree.
(Eclipse degrees stay “hot” for about six months to a year after the eclipse.)
Like Leo, Scorpio is a fixed sign, meaning it stays the course as long as it is able. The Moon in Scorpio this weekend ensures Hurricane Harvey will not only not lose much of its strength, but also ensures whatever rains it will bring Texas and the rest of the Gulf will be a heavy rain indeed.
If you know anyone in Texas or in weather warned Gulf Coast states and they haven’t decided yet to flee the path of the hurricane, please let them know that this time fate is probably not on their side.
