Astrology of the Paris Climate Conference

World leaders are gathering in Paris for the UN climate conference known as COP21, aimed at forging a deal to limit global warming to 2C. Heads of 147 state and government are in the French capital for the start of two weeks of intense negotiations. Monday's agenda includes speeches by the leaders and environment ministers of a number of countries, including Germany, Iceland, Peru and Scotland. A total of 25,000 official delegates hope to secure a legally binding accord for every country to cut carbon emissions. The accord needs to come into effect from the year 2020, when current commitments from the Kyoto Protocol run out. Nov.30

In several previous posts [1][2][3][4] we saw examples of how the last solar eclipse conjunct the star Denebola was linked to effluent waste and environmental pollution.  As Jupiter  transits over the eclipse degree we are now beginning to hear …

Sex abuse against horses on the rise in Switzerland

Mythology without its 'moral depravities' would become a book-religion, a construction or an inspired revelation of ethical dogmas and not the ongoing embodiment of human experience in which pathological patterns cannot help but be incorporated. So it seems myth condones rape as one of the events that must be portrayed by any system adequate to the true range of the soul. --James Hillman

Switzerland is seeing a worrying increase in the number of sex attacks carried out against animals and in particular horses. Figures showed cases of animal abuse rose to 1,709 in 2014, an increase of 1,542 from the previous 12 months. The findings are worrying animal rights groups as it is a problem that seems to be getting worse. The foundation, known as Tier im Recht (Animals in Law), said the amount of abuse cases reported was triple compared to a decade ago. However, it seems as though horses are coming under particular threat, with almost 10 percent of cases maltreatment of the animals invo…

First glimpse of black hole eating star and what it means metaphorically

An international team of astrophysicists led by a Johns Hopkins University scientist has for the first time witnessed a black hole swallowing a star and ejecting a flare of matter moving at nearly the speed of light. The finding reported Thursday (Nov.26) in the journal Science tracks the star—about the size of our sun—as it shifts from its customary path, slips into the gravitational pull of a supermassive black hole and is sucked in, said Sjoert van Velzen, a Hubble fellow at Johns Hopkins. "These events are extremely rare," van Velzen said. "It's the first time we see everything from the stellar destruction followed by the launch of a conical outflow, also called a jet, and we watched it unfold over several months."
The black hole is designated as ASASSN-14li and its celestial co-ordinates are as below: Coordinates (J2000)   RA 12h 48m 15.20s | Dec +17° 46' 26.20" Constellation   Coma Berenices http:/…

Sarcophagus of 'high priest of God Amun' unearthed in Luxor

CAIRO: The sarcophagus of Ankh-f-n-khonsu, a high priest of ancient Egyptian god Amun Ra, has been unearthed in the west bank of Luxor, Antiquities Minister Mamdouh al Damaty announced Thursday. The sarcophagus, which dates back to the 22nd Dynasty (943B.C-716B.C.,) was found in the tomb of Amenhotep-Huy, who served as Egypt’s viceroy and vizier during the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1391 B.C.–1353 B.C.) “The sarcophagus is made of wood and covered with a layer of plaster. It represents the deceased wearing a wig and crown with flowers and colorful ribbons along with ceremonial beard and a necklace adorning his chest,” Sultan Eid, Director of Upper Egypt Antiquities Department said in a statement Thursday.

Charts for exact planetary aspects are among the many celestial phenomena given importance in mundane astrology. Shown here is the chart for the Nov. 26 Sat…

Hollande's Meeting With Putin 'Deals US Geopolitics a Major Blow'

Following a meeting with Vladimir Putin, Francois Hollande has proved himself to be an independent leader, who is willing to disregard US interests, defense expert Konstantin Sivkov told Sputnik. "For the first time in a long time a politician controlled by the US made a stand against … American geopolitics," Sivkov noted. "Hollande is acting tough and disregarding US interests in the process. By promoting ties with Russia, the French president is 'creating cracks in NATO's spirit,' essentially splitting the US-led coalition. This deals American geopolitics a major blow."

As Jupiter transits over the September 13, solar eclipse degree it  triggers it and brings events into manifestation in line with whatever the eclipse had promised.  The following extract from a previous post  describes how the eclipse was affecting the US Sibly.

Garbage powers a bright idea

A German company promises to turn Howrah’s mountain of garbage  into a fountain of energy. Nov 27.

In several previous posts [1][2][3][4] we showed examples of how the last solar eclipse conjunct the star Denebola was linked to effluent waste and environmental pollution.  As Jupiter  transits over the eclipse degree we are now beginning to hear some good news about  positive efforts to deal with environmental  waste.  Shown here is a chart for the solar eclipse at  Howrah. Notice that it is significantly placed square the horizon axis.

 Progressing the eclipse chart to Nov. 27, the date of the news, aligns the Jupiter-Neptune  opposition on the horizon axis. In addition we note that the TNP Hades forms soft aspects to each end of the Jupiter-Neptune axis.  The following extract tells us that Neptune in Pisces is linked to the “clean up of existing waste”
The effects of pollution might also grow more evident, leading to ex…

Remembering Verghese Kurien – Father of India’s White Revolution

Verghese Kurien (26 November 1921 – 9 September 2012) was an Indian social entrepreneur who is known as the Father of White Revolution in India for his Operation Flood, the world's largest agricultural development programme. This transformed India from a milk-deficient nation to the world's largest milk producer, surpassing the United States of America in 1998, with about 17 percent of global output in 2010–11, which in 30 years doubled milk available to every person.

At this blogsite we have so far shown how important events can be seen in eclipse charts progressed to the date of the event. A corollary to this would be that “movers and shakers” are born on those days when a pre-natal eclipse is triggered it should be possible to decipher their work of destiny by a study of that eclipse. Kurien was born on 26 November 1921 at Calicut, Madras Presidency (now Kozhikode, Kerala) into a Syrian Christian family.  The total solar eclipse …

Brazilian baby boy bites venomous snake to death

Hercules and the Hydra

A 17-month-old Brazilian toddler killed a venomous snake that slithered near him, according to the Gaucha radio station.  The young boy, named Lorenzo, might just be a real-life Hercules after biting a venomous viper to death.  The killer snake approached Lorenzo while he was playing the back garden of his parents' house in the town of Mostardas in Rio Grande do Sul State in the southern Brazil.  But the snake clearly messed with the wrong guy. The toddler grabbed the serpent and used the only weapon he had — his sharp baby teeth — to kill the reptile by biting it to the death. Nov.3

A chart for the last quarter Moon of Nov.3, the date of the news,   drawn for Mostardas is  shown here.  Notice that the luminaries are in aspect to the meridian and the ascendant  implying that the quarter Moon is significant for the place.
Here the Moon is conjunct the star sigma Hydra while the …

Turkey shoots down Russian military jet

Turkey has shot down a Russian military jet which it says violated its airspace near the Syrian border.A military official, quoted by Turkey's Dogan news agency, said the plane was shot down by Turkish F16s, and that the pilots were given repeated prior warning.Video posted by the Haberturk TV station appeared to show the jet coming down in flames, while separate footage showed two pilots parachuting to safety within hostile Syrian territory. Their fate remains unknown.  Nov. 24

The mundane horoscope of Turkey is based on the proclamation of the Turkish Republic which took place on October 29, 1923, 8:30 pm EET, Ankara (32e52, 39n56). Notice that  Pluto is placed very prominently on the Ascendant and the chart is going through a  long term Plutonian opposition which activates the radix Mars-Pluto square, a  tense, explosive energy. This radix combination has the reputation for being singularly ruthless and fiercely competitive.  There is a compulsive need to ex…

Do sex strikes work?

Venus and Mars - Sandro Botticelli

A Spike Lee movie set to open Dec. 4, “Chi-Raq,” is a modern riff on the ancient Greek comedy “Lysistrata;” both offer satirical takes on women who go on sex strikes to get men to end violence.But do sex strikes work in real life? A Chicago woman is betting yes: April Lawson  started a petition on to put an end to violence on the South Side. “It’s time for a sex strike, girls,” she writes.”In a patriarchal society, a problem will not be addressed until it directly affects men. Abstinence has been used as a means of nonviolent protesting throughout history.” Nov.20

Regular readers of this blogsite may have been convinced by now that no event on earth is ever possible without it being “allowed” or if you like “facilitated” by the stars. If you are among those not convinced, this post should serve as another example to prove the point.
The mistake that most of us, following mode…

Farmer discovers Roman treasure in Swiss orchard

Draco – the dragon guarding treasure

When you spot a glimmering object in your back garden, it rarely ends up being anything more valuable than aluminum-foil. But one farmer in Switzerland has hit the jackpot after discovering a treasure trove of Roman coins thought to be more than 1,700 years old. Further excavation -- with the help of the regional archaeological service -- revealed 4,166 coins buried in Ueken, in the northern canton of Aargau, Switzerland. Nov.20

When an eclipse places a significant planet on the angles or in aspect to them, that planet or planetary combination can trigger an event that resonates with its meaning when a progressed angle moves over it. Notice that not only was the last solar eclipse of Sept.13 placed in the 12th house (hidden things) but the meridian significantly aspected the Hades-Jupiter-Neptune combination.
Hades-Jupiter: Good luck (Jupiter) through discovery of an ol…

Solar Eclipse and the detoxification program at the Viva Mayr clinic

Drinking and eating yourself fitter? That's sort of the deal at Austria's Viva Mayr clinic, which offers a "medically-approved" solution for clients wishing to shed a few pounds. This "medical spa" ditches masseuses for doctors in white, who administer abdominal treatments to aid digestion and intravenous drips to boost vitamin deficiencies. Detoxification techniques include intestinal cleansing -- achieved by drinking Epsom salts every day (said to send guests running to the bathroom several times a day). Detox baths, stomach massages and hayflower liver compresses are some of the gentler treatments on offer. Nov.17

In this post as in the several others in the past we will see how eclipses continue to manifest their central principle as and when they are triggered. Shown here is the solar eclipse of September 13 drawn for Maria Worth, Austria  where Viva Mayr clinic is located.  The eclipse is conjunct th…

Is Ashton Carter Insane?

Although the US military “do not seek” a new Cold War, it is determined to oppose the rising global powers – Russia and China – in order to protect the US-dominated “international order,” US Defense Secretary Ash Carter has said. Carter delivered this surprisingly direct and candid program statement, riddled with accusations against Russia for what he called “nuclear saber-rattling” and “violating sovereignty” of US allies, at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, AP reported on Saturday. Nov.8

These are the words of US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter. The world should be, and largely is, baffled by the stupidity and arrogance of such statements. Carter was born 24 Sept. 1954. He has a Mars[13cp]-Node [11cp] conjunction opposite Asbolus [14cn]. Notice that this aligns with US Sibly Sun [13cn] with the entire axis activated by transiting Pluto [13cp]. Mars is in hard aspect to Pluto and TNP Zeus - a volatile combinatio…

Pigeons Good at Detecting Breast Cancer

Although pigeons have brains that are no bigger than the tip of an index finger, several in a recent study were able to distinguish digitized microscope slides and mammograms of normal versus cancerous breast tissue. Their rate of accuracy, about 90 percent in one experiment and 99 percent in another, is equivalent to that of humans with medical training. “With some training and selective food reinforcement, pigeons do just as well as humans in categorizing digitized slides and mammograms of benign and malignant human breast tissue,” lead author Richard Levenson, professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at UC Davis Health System, said in a press release. Nov.18

The effect of an eclipse is known to last for several months after its occurrence. Eclipses can be triggered in many ways. One such way is the actual transit of a planet over the eclipse degree. Jupiter is currently transiting over the sol…

World's second-largest diamond 'found in Botswana'

The world's second-largest gem quality diamond has been discovered in Botswana, the Lucara Diamond firm says. The 1,111-carat stone was recovered from its Karowe mine, about 500km (300 miles) north of the capital, Gaborone. It is the biggest diamond to be discovered in Botswana and the largest find in more than a century. The 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond was found in South Africa in 1905 and cut into nine separate stones, many of which are in the British Crown Jewels. Nov.19

The news of the discovery of the Botswana diamond comes at the First Quarter Moon in which both the luminaries aspect Venus. A chart for the Moon phase at Gaborone has the Uranus-Pluto-Zeus-Venus T-square straddling the horizon axis implying that these energies are significant for the place.  In the extract  below astrologer Linda Jonson explains the dynamics of the current Pluto transit through Capricorn.  But here I urge readers to unfocus their mind’s eye and  th…

The bitter, crushing poverty of Appalachia is a preview of what is coming to the entire USA

What do you say to people that have completely lost all hope that things will ever get any better? The mountains of Appalachia stretch all the way from southern New York to northern Mississippi, and nestled within those mountains are dozens upon dozens of little towns that are so impoverished that they look like they have been through a war. Thanks to Barack Obama's relentless assault on the coal industry and the ongoing collapse of our industrial infrastructure, Appalachia has lost millions of good paying jobs over the past several decades.
Today, more than 40 percent of the population is living in poverty in some areas of eastern Kentucky, and addiction to "hillbilly heroin" (Oxycontin) is absolutely out of control throughout the region. Yes, poverty is on the rise all over America, but it has especially been cruel to those that make the mountains of Appalachia their home.
An article that was published in the Guardian on Thursday profiled the deeply impoverished town o…
