Instead of being quietly "sequestered" by the CIA, as some had speculated after his recent infamous spat with Mike Pompeo, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange may soon be a free man after spending the last half decade holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Moments ago, Swedish prosecutors said they decided to discontinue their long-running probe into alleged rape targeting WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange denies the Swedish rape allegation and hasn’t been charged for it. May 19, 2017 http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-19/swedish-prosecutors-end-rape-investigation-against-julian-assange
The solar eclipse of February 26 at London is anchored to the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto t-square on the meridian axis. Uranus (Aries) square Pluto (Capricorn) stands for the archetypal clash: courageous/warrior-like actions of individuals on behalf of the people's liberties (Uranus in Aries) vs. an intensification/consolidation of power by institutional structures facing threats to their authority (Pluto in Capricorn). Jupiter in the mix brings an element of good luck to individuals dedicated in their efforts to upholding the rights of an individual.
If we progress the eclipse chart to May 19, the date of the news, the progressed horizon axis aligns with the t-square and thereby triggers it.
Let us look at the star back drop for Uranus [22ar] and Jupiter [22li]which should symbolically explain the news. At 22 Aries we have the stars of the Chained Princess Andromeda, those of her father King Cepheus and other stars in the belly of the Sea Monster Cetus. Uranus is linked to rebels so that the image here is referring to a rebel possibly imprisoned through the actions of an authority figure. This is further supported by Pluto in Capricorn – a reference to authority figures who are prone to misuse power.
Jupiter [22li] is conjunct the stars Spica, alpa Virgo and Arcturus, alpha Bootes. About this pair, Nick Fiorenza writes:
In our stellar image, Boötes stands against the fallen (corrupt) religious-political authoritarian global powers (articulated by nearby Benetnash of Ursa Major) who claim to be the intermediaries between God and man, who wish to manipulate evolutionary affairs, and who have demonstrated over and again the inability to ensure such evolutionary fulfillment with the continual destruction of the peoples of the Earth, along with typical catastrophic outcomes. The body of Boötes stands over and protects the pure lucida of the Virgin (Spica) while blocking the manipulations of corrupt totalitarian powers and their diversionary tactics, the latter articulated by Canes Venatici, the barking dogs, which lies immediately south of Benetnash. http://www.lunarplanner.com/Bootes.html
With Jupiter transiting over this area, a fortunate outcome is expected for those who stand up against corrupt totalitarian powers.
