Iran's ex-President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, a dominant figure in the country's politics since the 1980s, has died at the age of 82, media say.Mr Rafsanjani had suffered a heart attack, the reports said. Jan.8 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-38548591
The passing away of an important Iranian politician can be seen in the chart for the last lunar eclipse drawn for Tehran. Notice that the eclipse Moon is placed in the 10th house. H.S. Green links an eclipse in this house with the death of leaders. The eclipse luminaries form a T-square with Mars on the descendant. Mars is placed in Sagittarius, a sign that rules clergy. Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani was an important member of the Islamic Revolution brought about by Ayatollah Khomeini, whose close follower he became. His political party was known as the Combatant Clergy Association (Mars in Sagittarius!).
If we now progress the eclipse chart to Jan.8, the date of the news, notice that the eclipse reaches the horizon axis and is thereby triggered.
