The world’s first malaria vaccine may just be a year away, after a thorough trial of a new drug showed promising results. PLOS Medicine on Tuesday published a study, in which researchers found that for every 1,000 children who received the vaccine, 800 cases of illness could be prevented. The children also retained protection 18 months after being injected. Now, pharmaceutical manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has applied the drug for regulatory approval — the first time a malaria vaccine has reached this stage.
“This is a milestone,” Sanjeev Krishna, professor of molecular parasitology and medicine at St. George’s, University of London, who reviewed the paper for the journal, told the BBC. “The landscape of malaria-vaccine development is littered with carcasses, with vaccines dying left, right and center. We need to keep a watchful eye for adverse events, but everything appears on track for the vaccine to be approved as early as next year.” TIME
Among the techniques in mundane astrology, cardinal ingresses of the Sun have a traditional reputation as very important events. Of these, the Capricorn Ingress is considered the most important and is often looked upon as the “annual chart” for a place. The angles of the ingress progressed on a daily basis can indicate events when they touch important planets or planetary configurations in the ingress chart. Shown here is the sidereal Capricorn Ingress of the Sun at

Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto-Child: Fortunate scientific or technological breakthrough in matters connected with children.
Uranus [8ar57] is conjunct the stars mu Cephei, [9ar54] in the King’s head, Algenib, gamma Pegasi, [9ar21] in the Flying Horse’s wing and 12 Andromedae, [9ar15] near chained right hand of the Princess. Readers who are familiar with the story of “The Royal Family”  will recognize Andromeda as King Cepheus’ child condemned to be devoured by the Sea-Monster (a metaphor for all manner of calamities). The wing of the Flying Horse is a symbol of freedom from some earthly limitation. About these stars Diana Rosenberg writes :
“This is a place of fires! Fires of illumination and fires of destruction….Here brilliant King Cepheus and high-flying Pegasus inspire extraordinary achievements that carry humankind into new knowledge and realizations.”
Also notice that at Saturn [21sc34] forms a sesquisquare aspect to Uranus [8ar57] and conjoins beta Muscae, [20sc22] – a star in the constellation Musca, the Southern Fly. The following extract from Ann Wright  tells us why this constellation is linked to the ‘mosquito’ and, therefore, in our context to ‘malaria’
The word musca comes from the Indo-European root *mu- 'Gnat, fly, to buzz'. Derivatives: midge (from Old English mycg, midge, from Germanic *mugjo). Suffixed extended form *mus-ka-; mosquito (family Culicidae) Musca, muscid, muscarine.
This constellation should also represent the mosquito, a Spanish word, diminutive of mosca, 'fly', from Latin musca. Mosquitos are of the family Culicidae, the Latin word for mosquito (also called gnats) was culex:
“The gnat (culex) is named from 'sting' (aculeus) because it sucks blood, for it has a tube in its mouth, like a needle, with which it pierces the flesh so that it may drink the blood" [The Etymologies of Isidore of Seville, 6th century A.D., p.270.]
The final point to note is the position of
which forms hard aspects to two legs of
the Grand Cross. It is conjunct the stars of Gula, the ancient Mother-Physician
and the Indian lunar mansion, ‘Satabhisaj’ literally referring to difficult-to-cure
diseases that require a Hundred Physicians. For this area, Diana Rosenberg
notes, “major technological and scientific breakthroughs” .
