Mladic punished for Srebrenica Massacre

Ratko Mladic, the former leader of Bosnian Serbs and a military commander was sentenced to life in prison after the UN war crimes tribunal found him guilty of the involvement in the Srebrenica massacre and committing crimes against humanity. On Wednesday, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia announced its verdict in the trial of former Bosnian Serb army chief Ratko Mladic. He has been charged with having committed genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia. Mladic denied all accusations.  Nov.22

International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia or ICTY, is a body of the United Nations established to prosecute serious crimes committed during the Yugoslav Wars, and to try their perpetrators. The tribunal is an ad hoc court which is located in The Hague, Netherlands. Shown here is the chart for the current New Moon at The Hague. Here the New Moon is conjunct the MC and is therefore extremely significant for the place. A New Moon acquires its meaning from the stars that form its backdrop as also the planets it aspects. Here the New Moon is amid the stars of the Centaur and the Wild Beast Lupus.

Symbolically, the centaur; half man, half horse represents the danger of domination by baser influences, instincts, the unconscious uncontrolled by the spirit. The man-beast combination illustrates the conflict between man’s lower animal nature merged with his higher nature of human virtue and judgement, the struggle between the savage and the benign. In the picture above notice that the centaur is shown carrying a spear that impales a wolf. The wolf – a despoiler of flocks, rapacious, cruel, crafty and bloodthirsty – has long been a symbol of evil. The Centaur impaling Lupus alludes to the aspect of the Centaur as a punisher of the crimes of the animal half.

Describing the influence of the stars that conjoin the November New Moon [26sc], Diana Rosenberg in her book Secrets of the Ancient Skies writes:

Lupus was called “Victima,” and “Hostia”(Victim, Hostage); he is shown dangling from the spear of Centaurus, apparently being carried towards  the (flaming) Altar as an offering (or for purification); of constellation Hercules, 1st  century astrologer Manilius said “cunning, treachery…from it comes the kind of thug who terrorizes city streets;” this was Venus (MC ruler of Baghdad) at the 1257 Winter Solstice just before Ghenghis Khan’s grandson Hulagu with 200,000 Tatars besieged Baghdad massacred 400,000 Muslims. These stars were also transited in 1572 at the St. Bartholomew’s Eve Massacre of Huguenots, Paris; in 1929 at the St. Valentine’s Day massacre of Chicago gangsters; at the 1978 Guyana Massacre, when Jim Jones forced 909 members of his “People’s Temple” cult to drink poison , the shot himself; in 1994 at the start of the Ruandan genocide: militia of the ruling majority ethnic Hutu deliberately set off to kill off minority Tutsi and Hutu moderates: hundreds of thousands were hunted down and slaughtered.

The New Moon makes hard aspects to the retrograde TNP Kronos-Hades conjunction. Retrogrades refer to the past and the combination Kronos-Hades is about leaders (Kronos) who have behaved badly (Hades). This resonates with the theme of the New Moon stars – Centaur and Lupus so that it is not surprising to see Ratko Mladic punished for his crimes.
