The lunar eclipse points falls within three degree orb of natal sun and the solar eclipse point falls within two degrees of natal Saturn. Sun is the lagna lord representing Government and the lunar eclipse will initiate activities related to changes in present government but it is the solar eclipse point conjunction with natal saturn that will bring about major political changes. In addition, Saturn transit in Virgo in September 2009 and subequent mars transit over eclipse point all suggest a major political change in Philippines in the making.
It is also worthwhile to note that the solar eclipse point falls on the natal Saturn of Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, present President of Philippines who came to power on January 20 2001. Arroyo herself is running Saturn Mahadasha born on April 5, 1947.
