Syria: On why good sense may yet prevail on Obama

Orion – the warrior

Obama’s radix Mars [22vi35] is conjunct the stars Avior [22vi36], Denebola [21vi05] and Cor Caroli [24vi01]  in the area of Benatnash.

This is a windy and fiery area of the zodiak, often producing grand spectacle and diversionary smoke screens. World powers functioning under the old totalitarian (Benatnash) directive have over and again demonstrated the inability to ensure the safe evolution of Earth and humanity by perpetuating continual upheavals, wars, and destruction of the peoples of the Earth throughout the ages. Cor Caroli is the Alpha star of Canes Venatici, the barking hounds or hunting dogs, articulating that the totalitarian tactics are those of commotion and grand spectacle, ensuring the attraction of one’s attention, the lure of the false prophets and spiritual / political illusionists. Canes articulates the expression of the Benatnash directive simply as loud and grand global proportion spectacle, but as diversionary tactics.

US readies to strike Syria at Hyades Last Quarter Moon

American forces are "ready" to launch strikes on Syria if President Barack Obama chooses to order an attack, US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel says. "We have moved assets in place to be able to fulfil and comply with whatever option the president wishes to take," Mr Hagel told the BBC.

Today's Last Quarter Moon [5ge15] at Damascus  aspects the meridian axis and forms a T-square with Mercury-Neptune.  
People  can  use words... to deceive (themselves or  others)... to exaggerate their concern for victims .. to take advantage of  others... to misrepresent things. There  can be a lot of talk about plans that are  unrealistic .  Folks can also "talk" but not follow through with action  (because they're impractical, indecisive or passive.)    This is a time to remember that what people  say may not be true... or may be misunderstood.  This is a time to  clarify, check the details, and look for omissions!  [1]
The Last Quarter Moon also  con…

Badger cull violates Ursa Major New Moon spirit

A pilot badger cull in Somerset is under way, the National Farmers' Union has confirmed. The controlled shooting of 5,000 badgers is due to begin on Tuesday in Somerset and Gloucestershire and last over six weeks in an attempt to control TB in cattle.

The current New Moon [14le] is conjunct the Dubhe, alpha  Ursa Major [15le]. Diana Rosenberg links this area with issues relating to the destruction or protection of animals and the environment [1].

In August Jupiter  in Cancer forms its Square and Opposition to Uranus and Pluto. The New Moon at Somerset  has the meridian axis straddling the  T-square  and therefore highlighting it for the place.  Uranus and Pluto have a quality of heartlessness as they bring about massive changes.  Jupiter in Cancer is  reminding us that while making these drastic changes we must not forget that all  living beings deserve our compassion.
But since Cancer is a sign connected with tribes, families and  groups, it is quite possible for individuals and g…

Sibly reflects upcoming US debt crisis

Come mid-October, the U.S. government will no longer be legally allowed to issue more debt, according to a letter written by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to Congressional leaders earlier today. That’s when the Treasury will exhaust the so-called “extraordinary measures” it has undertaken to avoid going over the Congressionally imposed limit on total federal debt of $16.7 trillion set in a budget deal in May.

Bill Herbst writing about the US Sibly and how it reflects the coming economic crisis says:

With Uranus moving into opposition with the USA natal Saturn, and Pluto moving into opposition with the USA natal Sun, and with both these axes aligned at right angles, something’s got to give. The USA chart is 237 years old. It has been through many major multiple-planet transit alignments over those two-plus centuries. But the USA chart has never been through any multi-planet transit configuration this precise, powerful, or disruptive. Uranus opposes the USA natal Saturn every 84 years, so t…

April eclipse brings changes for sex workers in Switzerland

Centaur carrying off a nymph (1892) by Laurent Marqueste (TuileriesGarden, Paris)

Summertime and the livin’ is easy – especially in the Altstetten area of Zurich where, starting Aug. 26, the city’s prostitutes will have brand new, government-sponsored digs to ply their trade.
Switzerland has a unique system of direct democracy, and issues big and small are frequently decided at the ballot box. Last year, 52% of Zurich voters approved the proposal of municipal authorities to earmark $2 million of taxpayer money towards building nine drive-in structures to provide a safe and discreet environment for sex workers. And on August 26, the “sex boxes,” as these premises are called, will be put into service, welcoming dozens of prostitutes and their clients.

In mundane astrology a chart drawn for an exact planetary configuration becomes significant for a place when planets aspect the horizon or meridian (angles).  Shown below is a chart drawn for the Venus-Pluto square at Bombay. Notice that Pluto is rising on the Ascendant square Venus. Venus-Pluto hard aspects have been related in  Greek mythology to sexual violence and rape. [1] [2]

Alphard Full Moon and gas attack in Syria

Syrian activists claim that government forces have carried out a “poisonous gas” attack in suburbs of the capital, Damascus, leaving hundreds of people dead. Activists said regime forces fired “rockets with poisonous gas heads” in the alleged attack early on Wednesday (21st Aug).

Shown above is the chart for the Full Moon  at Damascus which took place on the same day as the gas attack. The Sun [28le11] is conjunct the star Alphard, alpha Hydra, Snake’s heart. It is reported by the Radio Free Syria that the attack took place at 5 am. The chart for the moment also has the Sun [28le] just rising conjunct the star Alphard.

 Particularly matters connected with 'poison' are accentuated badly, e.g. blood poisoning, murder by poison, attempts of poisoning, poisoned hatred in women, gas poisoning…[Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.50, under the name Alphard.]
On the Ascendant [11le28] of the chart is Gianfar, lambda Draco [10le31] – anoth…

Astrology of the trial of Bo Xilai

The trial of Bo Xilai, the disgraced Chinese politician once tipped for the highest levels of power, has begun in the city of Jinan. Mr Bo, who has not been seen in public for 18 months, is charged with bribery, corruption and abuse of power. Formerly the Communist Party leader in Chongqing, he has since been stripped of official roles in a scandal that has seen his wife and police chief jailed.

The  Sun’s ingress into the cardinal signs is a very important tool in mundane astrology [1]. Here we see that the sidereal Cancer Ingress at Beijing is very significant with a Grand Cross in cardinal houses.  In addition, the stellium of planets Mars,Jupiter, Kronos, Hades squares the meridian. On the MC is the newly discovered planet Makemake.
Hades-Kronos: to see humiliation through loss of position; to be aware of criminal activity [2]
Pluto-Kronos: to be aware that prominent persons (including leaders in government)  are under substantial pressure [2]
Pluto-Uranus: power struggles within group…

On why George Bush might be imprisoned

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., (Aug. 20, 2013) — In court papers filed today (PDF), the United States Department of Justice requested that George W. Bush, Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice and Paul Wolfowitz be granted procedural immunity in a case alleging that they planned and waged the Iraq War in violation of international law. Plaintiff Sundus Shaker Saleh, an Iraqi single mother and refugee now living in Jordan, filed a complaint in March 2013 in San Francisco federal court alleging that the planning and waging of the war constituted a “crime of aggression” against Iraq, a legal theory that was used by the Nuremberg Tribunal to convict Nazi war criminals after World War II.
At the onset I refer readers to an earlier post where I explain why I think George Bush is likely to go to jail.

Astrology of volcano Sakurajima’s eruption in Japan

Sakurajima, one of Japan's most active volcanoes, experienced one of its most powerful eruptions in decades Sunday, sending an ash plume thousands of feet into the air. The volcano, located in the far southwestern part of Japan's mainland on the island of Kyushu, began to erupt at 4:31 p.m. local time Sunday (3:31 a.m. EDT U.S. time). The smoke plume eventually reached a height of 5,000 meters (approximately 16,000 feet), according to the Kagoshima Local Meteorological Observatory. Public broadcaster NHK reported it was the volcano's tallest ash plume since records began in 1955.

The chart shown above is the Sun’s ingress into sidereal Cancer. Note the powerful Pluto-Uranus square aspecting the meridian axis with Uranus on the fourth cusp – the point most associated with the earth and volcanic or seismic activity. The chart below is for the exact moment of  the eruption. Once again notice the Pluto-Uranus square on the other significant axis – the horizon. The Moon , which …

A culture of harmlessness brings whales and surfers together

Huge whales meet surfers
Australian surfers are treated to an amazing display by visiting whales at BondiBeach. 3:08 pm, August 16, 2013.;

The New Moon [14le35] is conjunct Dubhe, alpha Ursa Major.  
The astrological influences of the constellation given by Manilius:
"Now when, after completing a revolution round the pole, the Bear (Ursa Major) with muzzle foremost replaces her unceasing steps in her former tracks, never immersed in Ocean but ever turning in a circle, to those born at such a time wild creatures will show no hostile face, and in their dealings with animals these men will find them submissive to their rule. Such a one will be able to control huge lions with a gesture, to fondle wolves, and to play with captive panthers; so far from shunning the powerful bears that are the kin of the constellation, he will train them to human accomplishments and feats foreign to their nature; he will seat himself on the elephant's back and…

Explosion on Indian navy submarine

MUMBAI: The Indian Navy suffered a huge blow Wednesday when a frontline submarine exploded and sank here at dawn with 18 sailors after two explosions turned it into a deadly ball of fire. The deep sea attack vessel INS Sindhurakshak, recently refurbished in Russia, suffered an unexplained explosion just after Tuesday midnight and an immediate deafening blast heard almost in the whole of south Mumbai.

Shown above  is the sidereal Cancer Ingress of the Sun at Mumbai. Uranus is placed in the sixth house at the apex of a T-square with Mars-Jupiter and Pluto – a combination that is explosive in nature [1].
The Sixth House: The national services; Army, Navy and Civil Services as servants of the country.
Uranus in the 6th house: Trouble in the Navy, accidents or explosions on vessels.
(Mundane or National Astrology: H.S. Green )

Events occur when  aspects to planets are formed by the progression of angles  of a mundane map. Here we can see that the progressed MC forms a quincunx aspect to Uranus…

Astrology of the shark attack at Maui

A German tourist was in critical condition after a shark severed her right arm while she snorkeled in Hawaii on Wednesday, authorities said. The approximately 20-year-old woman, who was unconscious when first responders arrived, was taken to MauiMedicalCenter for treatment, according Lee Mainaga with the Maui Fire Department. The attack took place about 50 yards offshore at White Rock beach in Maui. The beach has been closed one mile on either side of where the attack happened.

Events like these can be seen from mundane charts of eclipses or ingresses. Shown above is the 25 April lunar eclipse chart at Maui. The eclipse Moon [5sc46] is in the 5th house associated with sports and places of recreation.  Amongst other things Diana Rosenberg lists “animal attacks” for the stars conjunct the Moon [1] as well as the Sun [2].
The Sun and the progressed descendant are conjunct one of the stars of  Cetus, the sea monster that the early Arabs referred to as Al Kaff Al Jidhmah [3], “The Amputated H…

Poseidon: Fires of illumination connect Pope Francis and Alfredo Moser

For centuries the Catholic Church has declared homosexuality to be a sin. But as he concluded his trip to Brazil this week, the Pope answered a question about homosexuality by saying it's not his place to judge gay people. While that inspired some optimism among church reformers, Pope Francis made it clear he is not an advocate of change on that other sensitive gender issue, the ordination of women. 30 July

Alfredo Moser's invention is lighting up the world. In 2002, the Brazilian mechanic had a light-bulb moment and came up with a way of illuminating his house during the day without electricity - using nothing more than plastic bottles filled with water and a tiny bit of bleach. In the last two years his innovation has spread throughout the world. It is expected to be in one million homes by early next year. So how does it work? Simple refraction of sunlight, explains Moser, as he fills an …

King Cepheus frees Andromeda

The Obama administration has unveiled major changes to the criminal justice system, dropping mandatory minimum sentences in certain drug cases….During his speech, the attorney-general Mr Holder also announced an expanded compassionate release for inmates facing extraordinary circumstances and who pose no threat to the public.
The policy will include elderly prisoners who did not commit violent crimes and who have already served a significant portion of their sentences.

The New Moon [14le]  and Obama’s radix Sun  [13le] both conjoin stars  Dubhe of the Great Bear, Acubens of Cancer and Zeta Hydra.
The Stars of the Great Bear are associated with the global scene and world powers; and reveal the diverse dynamic of these ruling forces in general. Dubhe is the overseeing star of this area of the zodiak. Dubhe and conjoining stars impel us to strive for a greater vision beyond the accepted political-religious dogmas of the human world that keep humanity in darkness and delusion.[1]
