Boko Haram 'ousted from Sambisa forest bastion'

The Nigerian army has driven Boko Haram militants from the last camp in their Sambisa forest stronghold, President Muhammadu Buhari has said. The terrorists are on the run and no longer have a place to hide," Mr Buhari said in a statement. The Islamists' camp fell at 13:35 local time (12:35 GMT) on Friday, he added. The army has been engaged for the last few weeks in a major offensive in the forest, a huge former colonial game reserve in north-eastern Borno state. Dec. 23

This wonderful piece of news is best explained by the lunar eclipse of March 23. A chart for the eclipse drawn for Maiduguri, Nigeria about 60 kms from militant forest stronghold is shown here. Notice that the Uranus-Pluto square straddles the angles and is therefore significant for the place.

The eclipse Moon is conjunct stars of the Virgin and Bootes. Theta Boötes, along with Iota and Kappa of Boötes, extending from Lambda Boötes, and which form his upraised left hand,  represent taking a stance against medaling powers that would like to suppress and control the creative process, the environment and the evolution of souls. Boötes is protector and consort of the Virgin, protector of the divine feminine principle.

On the IC is the starr Sirius.  In China this was the baleful Jackal or “Wolf Star”, associated with thievery and banditry.  On the Ascendant, Uranus, Eris and the asteroid Atropos are conjunct. Among other things, Philip Sedgwick links Eris with “fightings, lawlessness (attributed to her moon, Dysnomia”) while Martha Wescott  defines Atropos as endings.   Together these elements raise the hope of  the ending of lawlessness.

About the Uranus-Pluto square Bill Herbst writes:
People who are aware of at least some of the symbolic meanings of the Uranus-Pluto square need to understand that Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn are both double-sided. One isn’t “good” and the other “bad.” That’s far too simplistic. Each planet-sign pair has positive and negative meanings as judged by context and perspective. Uranus in Aries can mean standing up for individual freedom through the protection (and sometimes the reassertion) of personal rights against the draconian power of a collective — whether governmental, corporate, or social — that no longer considers the needs of individuals, which is the dark side of Pluto in Capricorn (rule by and for a privileged oligarchy). But the equations can work the other way, too. The power of the collective to force conformity against “outlaws” who harm society can be the cavalry riding to the rescue to defend the common good by preventing willful, insensitive, or even sociopathic depredations by individuals or companies whose actions harm  everyone’s safety and well-being. 

In summary,  we can see that the eclipse is setting up a situation for the possible end of lawlessness. If we now progress the eclipse chart to December 23, when the government made the announcement we have the angles once again triggering the Uranus-Pluto combination leading to the end of the Boko Haram curse that plagued Nigeria.

Finally, we may like to look at the chart for the exact time when Islamists' camp fell at 13:35 local time (12:35 GMT once again we have Uranus-Pluto straddling the meridian.
