North Korea’s Longest Missile Test Yet

North Korea has claimed its latest launch was a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile, the Hwasong 15, which can hit all the US mainland. The announcement was made on North Korean state TV on Wednesday, following the launch on Tuesday (earlier Wednesday Pyongyang time). The missile flew some 1,000 kilometers eastward, according to the Pentagon, before falling in the Sea of Japan without causing any damage. Pyongyang's statement also declared that the North now has a full-fledged nuclear force. "North Korean leader Kim Jong-un announced that the country has realized the great historic cause of completing a state nuclear force," it said, as cited by Yonhap.

 After more than two months without a missile launch, North Korea did a middle-of-the-night test (3:17 am local time) today that appears to be its longest yet.

To understand this technological leap that North Korea has taken in the field of ICBMs, we go back to the total solar eclipse chart of Aug. 22 drawn for Pyongyang. Notice that the eclipse is trine Uranus [28ar] which is part of a T-square with Apollon-Jupiter-Vulcanus that straddles the horizon. A simple delineation for this combination is : Pressure to expand and make a technological breakthrough. Next we notice that the MC carries the Pluto-Zeus-Kronos-Hades T-square. Among other things Kronos is heights or altitude and this can combine with Zeus (guns and military equipment) to refer to rockets.  The addition of Pluto-Hades can refer to a decline in conditions stemming from a desire for revenge.

Let us recall that the total solar eclipse of Aug. 22 [28le52] fell on North Korea’s radix Saturn [28le56] activating its Saturn-Zeus conjunction. The current progressed Sun [26sc19] illuminated by the current New Moon [26sc]  is with 2 arc minutes of a square to the Zeus/Saturn natal midpoint [26le17] which is trine radix Hades [27ar] and conjunct the asteroid Orpheus.

Saturn/Zeus: to use self-discipline and patience to plan and organize; to have to face limitations due to problems with machines (especially those connected with the military e.g. a rocket).
Orpheus-Zeus: explosions, fires and machines that can result in death; machines or planned attacks that can result in loss of life.
Hades-Zeus: secret plans.

Finally, if we progress the eclipse chart to Nov.29, the date of the news, notice that the progressed Ascendant aligns perfectly with the Zeus-Pluto square here referring to general tensions raised in the world caused by the firing of the rocket.

As if this was not proof enough, the chart for the exact time of the launch of the ICBM (3:17 am) also carries the Hades-Kronos-Zeus-Pluto combination on the angles!


On November 29th when Korea launched its nuclear capable ICBM capable of reaching the whole of the US a new chapter in nuclear technology development was reached. At this time the Sun [8sa] was transiting opposite radix Saturn [8ge56] in the Nuclear Axis chart!

The Nuclear Axis

To find a pattern, we need only return to the defining moment of the nuclear age. When the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction occurred, in a makeshift laboratory on a squash court in Chicago (December 2, 1942, at 3:25 pm CWT), a rare conjunction of Saturn and Uranus in Gemini  was rising. This was closely opposed by a conjunction in Sagittarius, including the Sun and Mercury.

Repeated nuclear events over the past 58 years have led some astrologers to describe these degrees across early Gemini-Sagittarius as "the nuclear axis," which is highly sensitive to transits. One critical degree in this axis appears to be Saturn's location at the time of the first chain reaction, 8 degrees 56 minutes of Gemini.
