Enactment of crucifixion in the stars

Indonesian Catholics took part in a re-enactment of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday in Magelang, Indonesia on March 29, 2013.
It will surprise readers to see that an event like  this which re-enacts the  Crucifixion of Jesus Christ can actually be seen in the stars. Shown here is the  lunar eclipse of November 28, 2012 which took place with the Moon at 6ge47.  Notice that by the rules of mundane astrology it is important for the place since one leg of the eclipse yod falls on an angle – in this case the IC of the chart. 



 The Sabian symbol for the Moon is:
PHASE 67 (GEMINI 7°): A WELL WITH BUCKET AND ROPE UNDER THE SHADE OF MAJESTIC TREES.
KEYNOTE: Man's primordial faith in the hidden sustaining power of life. At this second stage of the fourteenth five-fold sequence of symbols, the power of the collective and bio-spiritual energies which sustain all earth-rooted cultures is stressed, in contrast to whatever the technological mind of man can make available to increase h…

Full Moon Crisis for Bassem Youssef

An arrest warrant has been issued for a popular Egyptian political satirist for allegedly insulting Islam and President Mohammed Morsi. Bassem Youssef has faced several complaints over his show El Bernameg (The Programme). Bassem Youssef is a doctor who shot to fame after winning a large number of followers with his witty lampooning of public figures in amateur videos posted on the internet following the uprising that ended Hosni Mubarak's rule in February 2011. He has poked fun at a wide range of figures, from fellow television presenters to well-known Muslim scholars and recently Mr Morsi himself.
The arrest warrant has been issued under the Disseminating Moon of March 30. A chart drawn for the Disseminating Moon at Cairo has 20sc06 with the Moon at 25sc14 and Sun at 10ar14. Describing this area Diana Rosenberg says “…(Here are) Serpent, Centaur and wild beast Lupus.... defiant dare devil Hercules…ability to summon up courage and strength..eloquent, resourceful and inventive they…

Philip Ramone – An Astro-obituary

Philip "Phil" Ramone (January 5, 1934 – March 30, 2013) was an South African–born American recording engineer, record producer, violinist, and composer,who, in 1958, co-founded A & R Recording, Inc., a recording studio at 112 West 48th Street, New York — above what then was Manny's Music. The success of that studio grew into several studios and a record producing company. He was described by Billboard as "legendary", and the BBC as a "CD pioneer". Ramone was born in South Africa and grew up in Brooklyn. As a child in South Africa, Ramone was a musical prodigy, beginning to play the violin at age three and performing for Elizabeth II at age ten
Ramone died on March 30, 2013, in a Manhattan hospital after being admitted for surgery. His death was caused by a brain aneurism.  [1]



It is been our constant effort at this blogsite to show that the effect of eclipses lasts long after they are gone. Mundane astrologers agree that an eclipse on any of the fou…

Full Moon ‘ups the ante’ in Korea

Every Full Moon is an opportunity for increasing awareness and, ideally, making breakthroughs. This Aries-Libra lunation reminds us that individualism and partnership live on two ends of the relationship spectrum and that we can learn how to comfortably navigate from one end of it to the other. Instead of polarizing me (Aries) and we(Libra) and acting as if they are totally separate, this Full Moon connects them. The general interpretation of a Libra Full Moon, though, does not tell the whole story of this one. That's because this Sun-Moon opposition resonates with the ongoing, earthshaking, world transformational Uranus-Pluto square, which is the dominant astrological signature of 2012-15. During this Full Moon Uranus is conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon, triggering surprises that can put cracks in relationships. Pluto forms tense squares to the lunation, dredging up issues of power and desire that have been buried in the unconscious. The presence of these disruptive outer pl…

Uranus-Pluto triggers Lhasa landslide

A massive landslide engulfed a gold mining area in mountainous Tibet, burying 83 workers believed to have been asleep early Friday morning, Chinese state media said. About 2 million cubic meters (2.6 million cubic yards) of mud, rock and debris swept through the area as the workers were resting and covered an area measuring around 4 square kilometers (1.5 square miles), China Central Television said. The official Xinhua News Agency said the workers in Lhasa’s Maizhokunggar county worked for a subsidiary of the China National Gold Group Corp., a state-owned enterprise and the country’s largest gold producer.



For understanding this event we look at the Capricorn Ingress chart at Maizhokungga, the site of the accident. By the rules of Mundane astrology, the chart is strong since the powerful Sun-Uranus-Pluto square is on the angles.  The IC of the chart is 19vi38  within about 7 degrees of orb [1] to the star Alkaid [27vi]. Progressing the chart to the date of the disaster brings it to the…

Horace the Hare teaches unconditional love

It is the usual fate of the Irish hare, a wild strain betwixt the Scottish and European varieties, to sleep by day in the hedgerows and by night to scurry through plowed fields in search of leafy delicacies. To live long he must be a wary hare, on guard always against man, his guns and dogs.
This might have been the life of Horace, the loveable hare, had he not fallen three years ago into the hands of Cecil S. Webb, director of the Dublin Zoo. Webb and his wife took Horace into their home to study the ways of small wild animals. They kept him on … because they had acquired a wonderful pet, as intelligent, playful and domesticated as any dog.[3]
The Full Moon eclipse of 4 Jun 2012  took place with the Sun [14ge14] conjunct Venus[16ge44].  It is significant for New York  since it forms a Grand Cross with meridian axis.


Nick Fiorenza [1] explains,  that Venus (and the heart chakra), when mature and clear, expresses love in art and beauty, with a wonderful capacity for unconditional accepta…

The cost of war

The latest estimate, here, of the cost to the U.S. of waging the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, from Harvard researcher Linda Bilmes. The eventual cost could reach $6 trillion, she estimates, or nearly $20,000 per American.
“While the wars did not cause the financial crisis, they were certainly a significant factor in creating the conditions that led up to it,” said Ms. Bilmes. “First, the Iraq war and the resulting instability in the Gulf put upward pressure on oil prices, which rose from $25 a barrel in 2003 to $140 a barrel four years later.
“Second, these higher oil prices depressed U.S. economic activity, prompting the Federal Reserve to loosen monetary policy. Finally, this additional liquidity contributed to the housing bubble and the financial collapse that followed,” she said.
The political cost of the war was also enormous, untruths were told to the American people and to the United Nations to justify the invasion, reputations were tarnished, tarnished in the same manner war haw…

Internet spam: Hercules battles the Hydra

Heracles & the Hydra




The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack of its kind in history. A row between a spam-fighting group and hosting firm has sparked retaliation attacks affecting the wider internet. Spamhaus, a group based in both London and Geneva, is a non-profit organisation which aims to help email providers filter out spam and other unwanted content. To do this, the group maintains a number of blocklists - a database of servers known to be being used for malicious purposes. Recently, Spamhaus blocked servers maintained by Cyberbunker, a Dutch web host which states it will host anything with the exception of child pornography or terrorism-related material. Spamhaus has alleged that Cyberbunker, in cooperation with "criminal gangs" from Eastern Europe and Russia, is behind the attack.
The Capricorn Ingress chart is the most widely used tool in mundane astrology to understand world events. Sh…

Vermilion Bird and Coffee rust in Mexico

Coffee rust plagues farmers in Mexico
Finca Hamburgo, at 1,250 metres above sea level, commands an uninterrupted view of 280 hectares of coffee plantations covering the verdant slopes of Tacana, a volcano in Chiapas state, southern Mexico. The damp heat there, close to the border with Guatemala, is ideal for growing Arabica coffee. But coffee rust – a disease caused by the Hemileia vastatrix fungus that spreads orange dust on to the leaves of coffee bushes – has infected the plantation, which has been operating for 125 years at Tapachula.
One of the standard tools in the arsenal of mundane astrologers is the Spring Equinox (or Aries Ingress) chart. This chart is considered so important that it is used by several astrologers as a chart for the entire year. Shown here is the  Aries Ingress chart for Finca Hamburgo. Notice that the Jupiter is on the IC forming the apex of a Yod with Saturn-Pluto.


Jupiter and the IC of the chart are next to the star Rigel of Orion. This was part of the Chin…

Uranus Full Moon triggers Mexico earthquake

Earthquake Shakes Large Area Around Mexico City  (MEXICO CITY) — Earthquakes shook a broad swath of southern Mexico on Tuesday, causing buildings to sway in the capital and sending thousands fleeing into the streets as quake alarms sounded. But there were no immediate reports of damages or injuries. The U.S. Geological Survey said a magnitude-5.5 quake hit at 7:04 a.m., centered about 10 miles west-southwest of Pinotepa Nacional on the PacificCoast and 227 miles south-southeast of Mexico City.



Earthquakes are found to be associated with eclipses especially if  they occur on the horizon or meridian axis or if at the time of their occurrence there are significant planets on the fourth cusp – the point in astrology  associated with the earth or foundations. The earthquake often follows within a day or two of the eclipse. Sometimes, however, an interval of time elapses, and then the effects usually follow when a lunation (New or Full Moon) or planetary transit triggers the sensitive point…

Multicongruence: Gay marriage and Bagram prisoner release

Charles Harvey was probably one of the most fervent and enthusiastic of mundane astrologers, and his book, Mundane Astrology, co-authored with Michael Baigent and Nick Campion, remains the standard text for students. Harvey wrote these prophetic words in Mundane Astrology:
we are going to need to develop ways of considering the future interweaving of whole hierarchies of cycles and charts rather than treating them in isolation as we do at present. How this is done effectively is one of the great challenges of the next few years. Another astrologer who has made it his job to 'develop ways of considering the future interweaving of whole hierarchies of cycles' is Dennis Elwell, whose classic and remarkable book Cosmic Loom (1986, now in a second revised edition recently reprinted by the UT), contains a disturbing set of observations about how the cosmos behaves, reflected via astrological patterns.
These patterns are neither cosy in their effects, nor are they individual-friendly. E…

Stars and the US Supreme Court Gay Marriage ruling

Why the Supreme Court Is Likely To Rule For Gay Marriage On March 26, the court will review a California ban on gay marriage, which voters narrowly approved in 2008. That case could give the court a chance to accept or reject a constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

Shown above is the Winter Ingress chart for December 21,2012. Notice that a T-square involving Sun-Juno-Pluto-Uranus-Kronos-Hades forms a Grand Cross with the MC. This implies that it is will have a significant effect in  WashingtonDC and by implication in the US.
JUNO: Partners; marriage/relationship KRONOS: laws, authorities HADES: disgust; feeling demeaned
Collapse of an old order (Pluto-Uranus) ; changes in the laws (Kronos) that govern marriage (Juno). Feeling demeaned by or  disgusted (Hades) with laws (Kronos).
The progression of the Winter Ingress chart to March 26 brings the T-square to the angles once again thereby  triggering its effect.


Regular readers will by now be familiar with the fact that although the Winter…

Azure Dragon brings prosperity to Mongolia

The Azure Dragon

The Oyu Tolgoi mine (Turquoise Hill) is a combined open pit and underground mining project in Khanbogd sum within the south GobiDesert, approximately 235 kilometres (146 mi) east of the ÖmnögoviProvince capital Dalanzadgad. The site was discovered in 2001 and is being developed as a joint venture between Turquoise Hill Resources, Rio Tinto and the Government of Mongolia. The mine scheduled to begin production in 2013. Oyu Tolgoi deposits contain (as of 2010) an estimated 79 billion pounds (35,833,000 tonnes) of copper, and 45 million ounces (1,275,000,000 grams) of gold.  When fully operational copper production is expected to reach 450,000 tonnes (500,000 short tons) annually. The company is predicting that the Oyu Tolgoi mine will generate more than $8bn every year for the next 40 or 50 years. It is an astonishing windfall for a country with fewer than three million people.
Canada-based miner Turquoise Hill Resources on Thursday ( Jan 31, 2013) announced that its 65%-…
