We cast this chart “live” as the confirmation of the death of the Kouachi brothers in the Paris hostage situation was reported by CNBC.  We note that the Moon opposition to Chiron / Neptune is active during this process, with Moon having set slightly before the report, Neptune having just risen, and Chiron rising.

(This is the Plano chart, cast local to astrologer.  If you are a regular reader, you know why we do this.  Just in case you are not: we do this because it takes into account that we are viewing the event through our own personal “lens.”  Since this is a clear-cut event in a particular location, we will provide that chart also.)

Compare this to the chart for the Boston Marathon bombing (with Chiron / Neptune setting).  Unlike Boston, we also have Mars in play (who probably represents the hostage taker at the Kosher supermarket).  The key player in all of this, however, is the MOON, and SHE (Hayat Boumediene) probably represents the woman that has been mentioned several times by the press.  (Where is she?  Cherchez la femme!)

Just in report: death of the hostage taker at the supermarket (just barely past the rising of Chiron).

In the immediately preceding post to this one, we mentioned the importance of this particular Moon opposition to Chiron / Neptune on this date.  Do not think for a moment this is “over.”  Based on the other patterns (Hele, Focused Yod) on this date, we expect continued polarization (Hele) to occur and a potential for more violence (focused yod) to be in play.

Here is the Horary version of this chart for those who wish to interpret that:

Here is the same version of the chart as an Horary page:

We note that a slightly more “interesting” chart occurred an hour before this.  (Please, someone double check my time calculations to make certain my adjustments for Paris were correct. Should the correct time be adjusted from 10:23 CST in Plano (Dallas TX) to 4:23 PM CET in Paris or 5:23 PM CET in Paris?)  (The minutes and seconds are EXACT, with the “Now” button in Solar Fire clicked as the words of the report (“confirmation”) were spoken.  Only the hour is in question.)

This one hour earlier chart (accidentally first published until we double checked our work) seems to actually describe the events better.  (Moon at IC, aka “the grave,” Neptune / Chiron at Midheaven (the brothers), etc.)

If this chart (an hour earlier?) was really the turning point, here is what we read.  (1) Again, the “femme” (Hayat Boumediene) is the key.  (2) She heavily influenced the brothers but not as much the man in the grocery store (even though he is described as her “husband”).

In one chart, the earlier chart, Mars (almost certainly Amedy Coulibaly) was in opposition to the “Part of Treachery.”  In the other chart, the later (official) chart, Moon is conjunct (aligned with) the “Part of Treachery.”  Was the death of her “husband” her ticket out of an arranged “marriage” that had failed?

Mercury and Venus (8th house) likely represent the dead hostages.

Seventh house shows three more (as yet undiscovered) co-conspirators, at least one of whom is a particularly sinister figure (Pluto).  One of the three (as yet undiscovered) co-conspirators may be some kind of religious figure or “traditional” female (Vesta).  The Plutonic figure may actually be a member of an intelligence community and could have been an agent provocateur.  If so, they will never be found and no official admission of their existence will ever occur.

Finally, these two brothers (Neptune and Chiron) simply could not achieve anything meaningful in life, and the horrible acts they committed as they competed for the attention of the woman (Moon) and this horrible death was the “best” they could achieve (Midheaven).

We present this version in the Horary format here:

Astro-Databank has a chart for the massacre at the Charlie Hebedo magazine offices.

Keep your eyes and ears open.  We are in dangerous times.

2010 Spring Equinox UK & Europe

[Just in case you are looking for it the Algol Post (Aka the Bad Moon Arisin’ post or Alghoul) is here.]

This Equinox is extraordinarily “lucky” for the UK, Spain, and most of France. With a Jupiter line to the west, and a Uranus line to their east (going directly through France), these countries will have much luck. The peoples there will experience revelations and insights. Government secrets will probably be revealed, but in hindsight it will have been for the best. Neptune in Aquarius brings deceit (and diseases such as H1N1) to the people of the world, but Chiron within a few degrees will fight for the education of the people and therefore for the revelations of deceit that Neptune can provide.)

Terrorists will probably give another try in these regions, but these aspects indicate that they will be discovered (Pisces) and brought to Justice (another aspect of Jupiter). Terrorists, as a category, are people who WANT to be the government, and they will come under as much public scrutiny as the official governments. They may come under more, much more.

Of course, the terrorists who carry out the operations for their puppetmasters will see themselves as martyrs (Pisces), but their attempts this year will force unanticipated (Uranus) revelations (Pisces). More and more “suicide bombers” will be captured alive, and this will lead to the downfall of their puppetmasters. The net result will be the populace in general will become wiser about these things, and a needed transformation will likely come to pass. (The possibility exists that some lives may be lost in this process, but do not be surprised if the terrorists are caught without any loss of life.)

With the Uranus line going through France, France may have a bit of a revolution of some kind. Not an actual revolution, probably, but a major shift in consciousness. The possibility exists that France will come down hard, very hard, on terrorism. They may come down the hardest of anyone yet, even beyond Israel and Germany.)

If you live in France, or visit, take many pictures. Tourism on “safe” days is recommended. One year from now, major changes will have happened, and you will want the photographs and memories.

Frankfurt, Stuttgart, and Milan will experience key issues with productivity this year. The same will apply to both Denmark and Norway. The current economic conditions will continue to plague them, and so-called “weak sisters” in the manufacturing sectors will go out of business. Construction might pick up some. Particularly in these key areas, the businesses who survive will become strong global competitors.This particular aspect will leave them very “lean.”

This may apply to Corsica and Sardonis as well. We do not normally think of these last two as manufacturing powerhouses, so perhaps the shipping business will improve for them. Regardless, a window of opportunity for them to improve their position in commerce exists. For all of these areas, from Norway to Sardonis, expect a kind of tough “no nonsense” approach to life to emerge.

Naples, Prague, and Berlin, and to a much lesser degree Rome, will have to wrestle with a Pluto line. This generally affects Sweden as well. In a sense, the problems here are very similar to those faced by China, described below. Potential for financial gain is very good, but these countries need to watch for industrial accidents, particularly those involving toxic wastes or possibly nuclear wastes.

Stockholm may have some very important messages for the rest of us. Solutions for certain kinds of problems are likely to be found there, and even for solutions not found there Stockholm may become a communications center for sharing ideas. The Nobels awarded there this year may be especially important.

Finally, Smolensk and Kiev have a Venus line passing through them. In a word, this could be a very prosperous year for them. Maybe they will get their problems under control and find themselves in a more favorable position in the global community.

Many of you will be celebrating soon, so be careful and have happy celebrations.

6/6 void followed by an “August” Moon Weekend

June 5, 2008 at 11:38 pm | Posted in Predictions, Weekends | Comments Off on 6/6 void followed by an “August” Moon Weekend
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Some of you wonder what I mean by this title. I mean that the workday of Friday, June 6th 2008 will be spent in a void for most people in North America. Probably applies to South America, too, but I haven’t double checked the calculations.

I’ve noticed that, in my blog stats, that some of my readers “parlez vous francais.” Welcome! I’ll start working on adjusting my English so that it will translate better. Time zones are trickier, but I can tell readers in France and England that the void described above will happen in the evening for you. And, the Leo Moon described below will be a “late night” event. Saturday’s charming Venus-Mercury rendezvous will be Saturday evening. Please remember to adjust for time zones.

Cancerian voids are known for several things. One ancient horary astrologer, probably William Lilly, stated that “the moon performeth, somewhat.” “Things” can be done in the Cancerian void, but they better deal with water, liquids, oceans, mothers, home, oceans, or even the Moon herself. Mostly a good time, a very good time, to be still and center. This is a great day for Moms. Some spills and upsets are bound to occur, but that is part of motherhood. A few family photos taken today might be some of the more memorable ones made.

If you are in Paris or London, maybe this is a good time to visit the “English Channel.”

Cancerian voids have a danger, too. Profound resentments, sometimes lifelong anger, can arise from minor incidents and minor misunderstandings. Please do be on your best behavior. And, if someone is a jerk, ask yourself if it is “really worth it” before you retailiate. A “cooling off period” is a very good idea today. Don’t do something you’ll regret.

In the “I Ching,” water is considered the element of danger. So, if you do play in the water, remember to be safe!

So, have fun, do things Cancerian (safely), and realize that the evening brings a Leo Moon. My understanding is that a Leo Moon is sometimes called an August Moon. (If I am wrong, please someone give me the “correct” definition of this term.) Friday is graced with such a Leo moon.

The early Leo occurs Friday during the afternoon or evening “rush hour” for many people. With Mercury retrograde, and the moon in early Leo, please do be VERY careful in your commute home.

Also, don’t render any opinions based on incomplete facts. People can behave rashly, and this is NOT the time to sign a contract or lease. Consider deferring major purchases until Saturday afternoon. You probably won’t get a lower price, but you might get better colors or features. (Mercury and Venus conjoin, bringing beauty and thought in alignment.)

Later Friday evening, just have fun. This is a good evening to play, and it may be a very romantic night for some people. Take party pics! If you are looking to make a romantic connection, this weekend could be perfect for meeting that new “someone.”

This is 6/6, and while not as “interesting” as 6/6/6 (June 6th of 2006), it is nevertheless an interesting pair of numbers.

I might add, if you must make a purchase during this Mercury Retrograde period, consider making it Saturday afternoon. Some outstanding deals, in terms of quality, may appear this weekend. The merchant has an edge here, so don’t expect bargains. Do realize that some kind of followup with this purchase may be necessary after Mercury goes direct. Make certain batteries are included.

Sunday isn’t quite as benevolent as Saturday afternoon, but isn’t particularly malevolent, either. Mercury and Mars communicate, and that CAN lead to harsh words. But, in this case, with just a small bit of wisdom the energy of this pairing can lead to some kind of essential action. Some people may find this is an especially good day for exercise of some kind.

Also on Sunday, something overdue may be launched or revisited. Right action is very possible here if clear thinking is applied. This might be a good time to work out the details for Father’s Day, next weekend. The moon is void during this period, so try to PLAN the action rather than launching. After sunset on Sunday may be the best time to launch your plan, especially if it involves organizing or cleaning. (Maybe time to get the house ready for holiday plans?)
