This week we land in my hometown, Fitchburg, Massachusetts,  as well as Johnny Appleseed and botanist Luther Burbank.  It was home of Ivers & Johnson biycle makers and gunsmiths, the Burbank Hospital & beautiful Heywood Wakefield furniture manufacturers.  All gone.  Next week we will for the eclipse jump to Kentucky to catch’s it’s maximum point…. Stay tuned.

Like last week, this week is highlighting Ceres at 17 Cancer in the skies, so partnering and caregiving will be emphasized.  Her symbol is “A germ grows into the tree of knowledge,” suggesting the rigourous determination of life to press forward despite all hindrances perhaps hinting at all the plans people are making for the Great American Eclipse, next week on the 21st of August.

Cancer 17  hearkens to the Philosopher’s Stone, that alchemical tincture thought to be bestower of health and longevity as well change as iron, lead, tin, and copper into good by heating the various minerals in  pear-shaped glass crucible (called the vase of Hermes or the philosopher’s egg).  (Sir Isaac Newton was a believer.)  It gets the keyword of “Unfoldment,” and positively suggests the personal realization of needing to tackle mmediate concerns and not let them slip away; negatively it warns of aplomb and false personal integrity.
