Trump declares Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

President Donald Trump has announced that the US now recognises Jerusalem as Israel's capital, overturning decades of official US policy. Mr Trump described the move as "a long overdue step" to advance the Middle East peace process. The fate of the ancient city is one of the thorniest issues between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel called Mr Trump's move "historic" but there has been sharp international criticism. Mr Trump said the US still supported a two-state solution to the longstanding conflict, if approved by both sides, which would essentially see the creation of an independent Palestinian state living alongside Israel.

A chart for the current Full Moon (also a SuperMoon) at Jersusalem will help explain the news. Notice that Neptune which forms a T-square with Sun and Moon is conjunct the MC. On the MC is the star Achernar, alpha Eridanus. Aratus called Eridanus, “The River of Many Tears” and Diana Rosenberg links this area with “history and paradigm altering events” [1].

Moreover the Sun is conjunct the US Sibly Ascendant and the star Antares, alpha Scorpii. For this star, Diana Rosenberg writes:

Keynote events in human history: the founding of cities, nations, empires and issues of national sovereignty [2].

Finally, we notice that the Full Moon makes hard aspects to the Mars-Uranus opposition that is also anchored to Neptune on the MC. In the chart for Israel [3], the Mars-Uranus opposition aligns perfectly with the horizon axis so that the Full Moon is influencing this chart in a big way. Transit Uranus is conjunct radix TNP Hades on the descendant in Israel’s chart. Martha Wescott [3] provides the following delineation.

Hades-Uranus: Haste, impulsiveness or innovation invites mistakes; the desire for change causes “missed steps” and misaligned sequential process; to see a sudden or unexpected turn for the worse.
