A Nova is discovered as Putin claims power at UN

A Nova has been discovered in Sagittarius [1] at R.A. = 18 03 32.77, Decl.= -28 16 05.3 which translates to an ecliptic longitude  of 270d47m. It was discovered by K. Itagaki, Yamagata, Japan on September 27. The findings were confirmed by other researchers on September 28, the very day of the lunar eclipse. A chart for the eclipse at Yamagata has it placed on the meridian axis.
Mercury and the TNP Zeus on the MC are in an area of stars that Diana Rosenberg links to events connected to the sky such as astronomy, astrology, meterology, navigation, aviation and space and cites giving the following examples under transits to these stars:
This was Sun and Jupiter  in 1957 when the USSR launched the Sputnik, the first artificial Earth satellite and the Moon at the moment the first human set foot on it in 1969. Even those who do not fly are drawn to the sky and light: there are chart elements here of the 17th century experimental physicist Robert Hooke, the first to build a reflecting Gregor…

Massive blasts in Guangxi, China kill 6

At least six people were killed and dozens injured after parcels containing explosives caused massive explosions in several locations in Liucheng county and Liuzhou city, in China's north-central Guangxi Zhuang  Autonomous Region, CCTV reported. Up to 15 explosions were heard across the city between 3.15pm and 5pm. Of those killed, five were certified dead at the blast sites, and one died after being rescued.Sept. 30;

The event reported in the news comes just after the powerful total lunar eclipse of Sept.28. A chart for the eclipse has the Mars-Saturn-Neptune  T-square on the angles. Mars-Saturn is a violent combination that can  show up as terror attack while Neptune brings in the “sneak” element.

Among the stars that form the backdrop to Saturn on the Ascendant are  Omega (ω) Hercules, Kajam, a double star in the Club of Hercules and Delta (δ) Scorpius, Dschubba, a star on the forehead of the Scorpion (see images).


NASA says liquid water exists on Mars

Dark streaks of flowing water on Mars

(CNN) Potentially life-giving water still flows across the ancient surface of Mars from time to time, NASA scientists said Monday in revealing a potential breakthrough in both the search for life beyond Earth and human hopes to one day travel there. While the discovery doesn't by itself offer evidence of life on Mars, either past or present, it does boost hopes that the harsh landscape still offers some refuge for microbes to cling to existence. Sept. 28

The news from NASA comes exactly at the lunar eclipse. A chart drawn for the eclipse at Washington, DC – the headquarters of NASA has a T-square comprising Mars-Saturn-Neptune aligned with the meridian.
Describing the challenge of the current Saturn-Neptune square, Jason Holley writes in his article “Navigating an Ocean of Images” :

Is the UN relevant after 70 years?

The United Nations (UN) as an organization was founded to promote international co-operation. A replacement for the ineffective League of Nations, the organization was established on 24 October 1945 after World War II in order to prevent another such conflict. At its founding, the UN had 51 member states; there are now 193. Since 1945, manipulated and corrupted by the five permanent members, the UN Security Council has often been brutally employed to serve the narrow interests of the powerful. This is as intended by the “victors” of the Second World War, if you read between the lines in the Council’s terms of reference as set out in the UN Charter. As result, the UN was structured to fail the people of Iraq and continues to do so in all respects. The world has witnessed in Iraq the most serious of international crimes the crime of military aggression on a sovereign member state by US and UK forces. It waits for the UN to act in keeping with the provisions of international law, includi…

So Obama Wants Talks with Putin on Syria?

After more than a year of demonising Russia as a threat to world peace, all of a sudden the United States changes tack and wants to hold talks with Moscow over Syria. US President Barack Obama and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin are set to hold talks in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting. The leaders will meet on Monday, 28 September, authorities from both the countries have confirmed. What a change from Obama’s churlish tantrums towards the Russian president! US Secretary of State John Kerry speaking in London last weekend seemed to be overcome with «shared goals» and objectives, seeking «common ground» with Russia to defeat the jihadist terror group, Islamic State (IS), in Syria. But only the week before that, President Obama was condemning Russia for stepping up military support for its long-time ally, Syria. Obama had said the Russian military aid was «doomed to failure». Suddenly, it seems, however, there is an American turnaround.…

Japanese climber who lost nine fingers nears Everest summit

A Japanese mountaineer who has previously lost nine fingers to frostbite is nearing the final stage of an attempt to climb Mount Everest. Latest contact suggests that Nobukazu Kuriki, 33, has reached the South Col, where he will rest before a final push later on Saturday to reach the summit. Mr Kuriki is the first person to attempt the climb since Nepal's devastating earthquake in April. It will be his fifth try at reaching the summit in the past six years. Mr Kuriki is expected to rest on the South Col for about seven to eight hours before attempting the final leg of the climb. It is not uncommon for climbers to set out for the summit late at night to reach the top around dawn, Ang Tsering, the president of the Nepalese Mountaineering Association, told the BBC. Sept. 26

Majority in U.S. Maintain Need for Third Major Party

A Gallup poll issued on September 25th is headlined “Majority in U.S. Maintain Need for Third Major Party,” and it opens: “A majority of Americans, 60%, say a third major political party is needed because the Republican and Democratic parties ‘do such a poor job’ of representing the American people.”

Shown here is the chart for the current solar eclipse drawn for Washington,DC. The eclipse [20vi] is conjunct the star Denebola [22vi]. About this area Nick Fiorenza [1] writes:
Zosma, Chort and Denebola are a triangle of stars that form the hind of the Lion. Denbola is the tail. Zosma and Chort can indicate being diverted due to toxic congestion. This area of late Leo is of foul breezes and smoke screens. It is also of those behind the scenes, of political religious figures manipulating the affairs of the world for personal motive while offering salvation from the human stru…

The eclipse exposes the Pope’s hypocrisy

For a man who is supposed to represent the highest virtues of Christianity, Pope Francis sure has habit of racking up hypocrisies on a regular basis. However, it’s surprising how many of these hypocrisies were spawned in just the past few days. In fact, they’ve been mounting since the moment he embarked on his trip to North America, and I mean that quite literally. As he pontificates to us about the threat of global warming and criticizes climate deniers, he does so while traveling the world in his Boeing 777. The pope’s flights from Rome to Cuba, Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia and then back to D.C. and to Rome will total around 11,500 miles, so overall the pontiff will emit around 572 tons of CO2 during his trip. To put that into perspective, 572 tons is the same carbon footprint as burning over 557,000 pounds of coal or over 1,200 barrels of crude oil. Sept.24

One of Europe’s Biggest Mosques Opens in Moscow

MOSCOW, September 23 (TASS) - Moscow’s Grand Mosque is due to open on Wednesday after a decade of construction work to become one of the biggest places of worship in Europe. As a result of the construction work, the building’s floor space has been increased twenty-fold to 19,000 square meters and the mosque will be able to accommodate up to 10,000 people simultaneously. The mosque was originally expected to open in May 2016, but authorities decided to speed up the work and hold the opening ceremony this year celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Great Patriotic War (1941-1945). Islam is the second largest religion in Russia, which has more than 7,000 mosques. Muslims constitute a majority in Russia’s regions of Adygea, Tatarstan, Bashkiria, Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay-Cherkessia.

The opening of the Grand Mosque took place exactly on the Autumn Equinox, the Sun’s ent…

Fortis Co-Founder Shivinder Singh To Step Down To Do 'Seva'

NEW DELHI -- Co-founder of Fortis Healthcare Shivinder Mohan Singh has decided to step down from his role as Executive Vice-Chairman of the multi-crore enterprise he owns with his older brother Malvinder Mohan Singh. The 40-year-old is giving it up to do 'seva' (service) at philosophical and spiritual organisation Radha Soami Satsang Beas headquartered near Amritsar. "Having spent almost two decades setting up and running Fortis, our mission of saving and enriching lives is an integral part of my being," he said in a statement released on Wednesday.

Uranus return may signal end of Saudi Arabia monarchy

A letter has been allegedly circulating among members of the Saudi royal family, with warnings that the House of Saud may be losing its grip on power. The letter containing a number of political accusations is said to be penned by an unnamed royal himself. "We [have] got closer and closer to the fall of the state and the loss of power," online news portal Middle East Eye cited the letter on Tuesday. Signed by "a descendant of the King Abdulaziz of the House of Saud," the letter is said to have been written by the late king's grandson, who confirmed to MEE he was the author, but asked not to be named "for fear of negative repercussions." Sept. 24;

Owner plagued by poltergeists scraps haunted van

A ‘haunted’ van allegedly vandalised by poltergeists has been scrapped by its owner, after 12 months of being ‘plagued by demonic spirits.’ Paul Friday, who runs a wheelie bin cleaning company, claims the ghouls moved from his home into his van after a medium from a local church exorcised them - and now he believes they’re trying to kill him after switching to haunting him personally. The 54-year-old also claims he was left with no choice but to scrap the Ford Transit and all of his work equipment after a string of ‘terrifying’ incidents including having his brakes tampered with and his van being doused with a gallon of petrol by ‘demonic entities.’ Sept. 13;

To understand this strange story let us start with the April 4, 2015 lunar eclipse chart drawn for Liverpool where Paul resides. Notice that the eclipse falls sharply on the meridian axis and is part of a T-square. As we have seen in previous posts eclip…

Big Price Increase for Tuberculosis Drug Is Rescinded

Greedy Dragon guarding treasure

Specialists in infectious disease are protesting a gigantic overnight increase in the price of a 62-year-old drug that is the standard of care for treating a life-threatening parasitic infection. The drug, called Daraprim, was acquired in August by Turing Pharmaceuticals, a start-up run by a former hedge fund manager. Turing immediately raised the price to $750 a tablet from $13.50, bringing the annual cost of treatment for some patients to hundreds of thousands of dollars. “What is it that they are doing differently that has led to this dramatic increase?” said Dr. Judith Aberg, the chief of the division of infectious diseases at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She said the price increase could force hospitals to use “alternative therapies that may not have the same efficacy.” Sept. 20

Pakistan delays hanging of paraplegic man

Virgo – the goddess of Justice
The planned hanging of a paraplegic prisoner convicted of murder in Pakistan has been delayed, his lawyer has said. Abdul Basit could not be hanged in compliance with the jail manual because he is in a wheelchair, a magistrate said when ordering the postponement. Pakistan's prison guidelines require that a prisoner stand on the gallows. Rights groups say hanging Basit would constitute cruel and degrading treatment. Abdul Basit, 43, is paralysed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair after becoming ill in prison. Sept. 22;

Mysterious stone disks discovered in Russia

A team of investigators in Russia have found more than a dozen stone discs in the Volgograd region of Russia including one measuring four-meters in diameter. The team claims that the discs contain tungsten, a high density metal that has applications in military technology. The nature of the discs remain a mystery.  Russian news site Bloknot Volgograd reports   that the finding was made by the Russian UFOlogy and Crytozoology group Kosmopoisk, led by Vadim Chernobrov, during excavations in the Zhirnovsky district of the Volgograd region. The UFO hunters were investigating in the region due its fame for the occurrence of 'mystical phenomena'. While the team had previously discovered more than a dozen disc-shaped stones, the recent finding of a stone measuring 4-meters in diameter was a first.  Fortunately, scientists at the Zhirnovsky museum are taking a more rational approach and are studying the 4-meter wide stone disc to determine its age and material. Some skeptics also beli…

Mercury retrograde takes Skype service offline

Mercury – God of travel & communication

A problem with Skype's status system has meant many people are currently unable to use the service. Reports about Skype being unavailable started at about 09:00 BST on Monday morning in the UK. In a statement, Skype-owner Microsoft said it had "detected an issue with the status settings" on Skype that show if someone is online or not. The problem locked many people's status as offline - stopping them making calls even though they were connected.  Sept. 21

In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology—so all of these areas go haywire for about three weeks during Mercury retrograde [1].

Invisibility Cloak Turns Any Object into a Mirror

Chamaeleon the chameleon, Well Hidden

In the movie "Predator," an alien uses a cloaking device to hide in plain sight, but the effect is far from perfect: The alien's attempt to conceal itself is thwarted by distortions of light bending around it. Now, researchers have built an ultrathin "invisibility cloak" that gets around this problem, by turning objects into perfect, flat mirrors. Sept. 18

The research in nanotechnology leading to the discovery was carried out at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Just two days before the news Jupiter and Neptune formed an exact opposition that aligned with the meridian at Berkeley and formed a square with Saturn.
