Social media campaign #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies

As millions go online to share information about the Gaza conflict, a social media campaign calling for tolerance is building. Jews and Arabs around the world have been sharing loving images of coexistence and using the hashtag #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies in an effort to change the discourse online.

Of all techniques in mundane astrology, the analysis of the horoscope for the birth of a nation is considered the most important. Astrodienst [1] provides the following data for the birth of Israel;14 May 1948; 4:00 pm (EET) ; Tel Aviv,Israel.  If we add the details provided by the Trans-Neptunian Points (TNPs) and asteroids, a much clearer picture emerges. The current solar arc progressed Sun [26cn43]  is square Hades [26ar53]  in the 7th house of “enemies”  (*) and  separating from the radix MC [25cn]. (Please note that the current Last Quarter Moon of July 19, 2014 with Sun [26cn21] and Moon [26ar21] has served as a trigger to the solar direction.)

The following asteroids and TNP form hard aspects: Vesta [29cn]; Admetus [20ar];  Hades [27ar] Orpheus [24ar]; Amycus [25ar]. Martha Wescott Lang’s delineation given below appears to provide a perfect picture of Israel’s relationship with the Palestinians (7th house).


Think of Admetus as patience, determination and "hanging in  there" (in the face of difficulties and frustrations.)  Now, think of  Hades, as...well, yeah, HELL  (and, of course I'm exaggerating...I  hope!)  What happens: people "hang in there and pride themselves on  being able to endure and survive"--while some situations go right down  the hopper. People can numb  themselves to the fact that something's wrong (and getting worse.)   People can be so patient that they don't do anything about depression or  hardships that they face.

Hades also stands for The Past--and that includes the Ancient Past, so  residuals from the past can  shape reactions (from their place deep in the sub-conscious.)  Admetus  tends to "tighten and toughen" so it can "stand" something, and Hades  brings decline And you  may see some events that strike you as meaning that because people  (and this can mean the international community in our case here) just stood by and did nothing, there was suffering, long-term  difficulty and decline.  


Cold treatment of others has the effect of  being a "put down"--as though by not having any emotions for another,  you "erase" them or give them the message that they're not worth  noticing.  It  is BECAUSE a person is disconnected from their feelings that others are  mistreated, situations turn sour, and difficulties aren't noticed.


It looks as though people and situations will be showing you how long a  sorrow can be held, how much a person can endure as their life comes to  a close, or how a person can become inured to the sorrows in their  life.  There may be some reason to notice caskets, cemetaries or a  painful longing for a place--for a Land

While the foregoing delineation from Martha Wescott is startling in its accuracy describing the Isreali-Palestinian scenario quite accurately, new hope about a possible change in attitude comes from the centaur Amycus (55595).


Amycus is a newly discovered centaur. It has its perihelion in Scorpio and node in Aquarius so that Philip Sedgwick gives the following interpretation:

With double fixed sign emphasis associated with critical orbit points, this centaur insists upon being firm and taking a stand. Solidity, reliability, confidence and unshakable resolve highlight this body. Yet, sometimes too much resolve stands in the way of resiliency. Thus, the node offers a level of open-minded consideration. When new data or insights arrive that improve the current point of view, position or what have you, it simply becomes integrated. No sense of wrong, failure or inadequacy goes with this. Simply, this regards all insight as valid. It includes only what resonates well in the core of the being. The rest is left behind with no need to disregard, diminish or disprove its merit. Using the vehicle of inclusion of the new at all moments in time, one’s place and view of life continuously improves, ensuring even greater solidity in life.

(*) The Sabian Symbols for radix Hades (26ar53) and solar arc Sun (26cn43) are highly illuminating in the present context.

Revision of attitude and inner revelation.


Another contributing factor for the sudden spurt in the Middle East violence  was the phenomena of Moon Wobble which was mentioned in  previous posts. From the details given below notice that the Nodal axis coincided with the horizon axis in  Israel’s chart acting as a trigger to the solar arc direction mentioned above.

On July 16 at 11:22:52 UT, the Sun [23cn52] will square the Mean Node [23li52]. This is a phenomena known as “Moon Wobble”. While it is exact on July 16, 2014 it may be felt for approximately a week on either side.

Moon Wobbles were discovered in the 1930's, when research by astrologer Carl Payne Tobey (1902-1980), the original editor of Astrology Magazine, revealed that disasters occur in cycles associated with the conjunction (0°), opposition (180°) and square (90°) from the Sun to the Moon's Node. These powerful contacts occur when the Sun and the Node are in the same sign, or the opposing sign, or when the Sun is in a square aspect to the nodal axis.

During Moon Wobble the instability factor is high, resulting in more accidents, fires, plane crashes, freak accidents, floods, feats of nature, bizarre weather patterns, earthquakes, tornadoes, violence, Terrorism, riots, and political and personal upheavals. These Cycles bring suppressed energies in people and Mother Nature to the surface, erupting and disrupting.
