Allow me to emend the above statement slightly. As I review an old
chart, it shows that actually the exact conjunction of Mercury & Mars
occurred on April 8, 1904 at 1:00 pm Cairo time, not on the 9th at
noon, as I stated. My bad. Memory.
Looking at the possibility of April 1,2,3 1904; I don't see anything
nearly as prominent as an exact conjunction. Lots of things in 'orbs
of influence' but nothing definitive.
However, it should be noted that the only month of the past century
which contained 3 eclipses was March, 1904. Penumbral eclipses of the
Moon on the 2nd and 31st, and the annular solar eclipse, in Pisces, on
That means that Maundy Thursday of 1904 witnessed a Lunar eclipse.
This would have been the last eclipse of the Old Aeon, (assuming that
a New one actually began), while the last Solar eclipse of the Old
Aeon occurred in Pisces, the sign of that Aeon.
