Turkey war planes launch strikes on Afrin

Turkish war planes have launched air strikes on Kurdish fighters in northern Syria in a move likely to raise tensions with the US. Turkey wants to oust the YPG militia, which it calls a terrorist group, from Afrin region on its southern border. The US-backed YPG says at least nine people were killed in the air strikes.  Jan.21

Turkey opened a new front in Syria’s nearly seven-year-old war on Saturday, launching airstrikes against a U.S.-backed Kurdish militia in Afrin province that raise the prospect of a further strain on relations between Ankara and Washington.

To understand the astrology behind the developing friction between US and Turkey, we begin with the sidereal Capricorn Ingress charts for Washington, DC and Ankara. Notice that at both the capitals the Sun-Pluto-Uranus-Zeus T-square is placed on the angles and, therefore, extremely significant.

Uranus-Pluto: To see attempts to force change or rupture; change or unexpected reactions based on resentments, compulsions, ultimatums or threats to control; aware of power struggles between friends; to see disruptive behavior based on emergent (formerly repressed) psychological content. MLW

With the TNP Zeus also involved, matters can become volatile leading to ultimatums and war-like situations. To check that this T-square is indeed at the core of the Turkish attack, we can draw the chart for the time of the start of the air and ground campaign, dubbed "Olive Branch" (14:00 GMT). And sure enough we find the Uranus-Pluto-Zeus T-square anchored to the descendant confirming that it is indeed the force behind the sudden attack.
