Is there any way to determine whether an event is an omen? For ancient cultures, those events somehow out of the ordinary were frequently looked to as providing insight into possible future trends. That is to say that some events can serve as mirrors to current states of mind or reveal impending developments.
With this in mind let us look at the US Sibly solar return. Notice that it has Saturn placed very significantly on the Ascendant conjunct the star ANTARES and in hard aspect to Uranus. Among other things, the combination Saturn-Uranus in linked to revolutionary breakthroughs both social as well as technological. About Antares Nick Fiorenza writes:
Antares is the heart of the Scorpion. 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.
So what might the launching of a rocket curiously named Antares mean as an omen for the American elections?!
