Cinco de Mayo
The 5th of May – roughly translated from Spanish. It is supposed to be a celebration of the Battle of the Puebla in Mexico. It was a pyrrhic victory, and the Mexican Army was totally destroyed a couple weeks later.
I like to call it, North American day to eat Mexican food and Margaritas. It is celebrated more in the US than anywhere else. And it has been adopted as Mexican Day. And while all the events that it talks about were back in the 1860’s, the date only became popular in the 1980’s thanks to advertising gurus in the Tequila and Beer industries. So go buy some Coronas and Limes!
Astrology of Note – The Nodes
I pretty much copied this from wikipedia because I had no idea how to explain it.
A lunar node is either of the two orbital nodes of the Moon, that is, the two points at which the orbit of the Moon intersects the ecliptic. The ascending (or north) node is where the Moon moves into the northern ecliptic hemisphere, while the descending (or south) node is where the Moon enters the southern ecliptic hemisphere.A lunar eclipse can occur only when the full Moon is near (within 11° 38′ ecliptic longitude) either lunar node, while a solar eclipse can occur only when the new Moon is near (within 17° 25′) either lunar node.Because the orbital plane of the Moon precesses in space, the lunar nodes also precess around the ecliptic, completing one revolution (called a draconic or nodal period) in 18.612958 years (6,798.383 days). (This is not the same length as a saros.) The same cycle measured against an inertial frame of reference, such as International Celestial Reference System (ICRS), a coordinate system relative to the fixed stars), is 18.599525 years.Both solar eclipses of July 2000 (on the 1st and 31st days) occurred around the time when the Moon was at its ascending node. Ascending-node eclipses recur after one draconic year on average, which is about 0.94901 Gregorian year, as do descending-node eclipses.
And the Rabbit Holes
Humanity is imprisoned by a killer pandemic. People are being arrested for surfing in the ocean and meditating in nature. Nations are collapsing. Hungry citizens are rioting for food. The media has generated so much confusion and fear that people are begging for salvation in a syringe. Billionaire patent owners are pushing for globally mandated vaccines. Anyone who refuses to be injected with experimental poisons will be prohibited from travel, education and work. No, this is not a synopsis for a new horror movie. This is our current reality.
Let’s back up to address how we got here…
