A string of explosions early on Friday rocked Thai resort towns of Surat Thani and the earlier attacked Hua Hin, where dozens of foreign tourists had been targeted. At least two people have reportedly been killed and “many” injured in the new spate of violence. One of the blasts took place outside Surat Thani police station on Friday morning, following festivities dedicated to the Queen’s Birthday / Mother’s Day celebrations in Thailand. https://www.rt.com/news/355609-thailand-new-bomb-attack/
As Saturn is stationing to go direct on Aug.13 and subsequently conjoin Mars and the star Antares on Aug. 24, the danger of violence and rebellious actions have increased. About this star Nick Fiorenza writes:
In classical astrology, Antares is the star of war and weaponry, and with expounded meaning, to challenge the established opposing politics (an arena common to the Antares / Aldebaran axis) with tenacious adamancy. This is especially in regard to taking a stand against the established conditions of our personal lives and against the established order or authority directing our lives when those conditions or that authority are no longer in our best interest nor supporting our evolutionary freedom and fulfillment.
Those places on Earth which have the Mars-Saturn conjunction on the angles become particularly susceptible to violence. Notice that a chart for the conjunction at Hua Hin, Thailand has it placed on the MC.
Yesterday’s First Quarter Moon becomes an advance trigger since it highlights the conjunction by placing it on the descendant at Hua Hin. Today as the attacks continue, transit Moon is moving over the Mars-Saturn conjunction.
Finally, the August lunar return chart for Thailand (June 24, 1932; 5:00 am, Bangkok) once again has Mars-Saturn conjunction on the MC confirming its role in the violence.
