A horary chart was made to determine what will come of the current Belo Monte dam issue in Brasil. The chart was made on 9/30/11 at 1:09 PM MST in Phoenix, AZ. Here is what the chart shows.
The Ascendent, ruling the matter, is at 2:33 Capricorn. Saturn, the ruler of the Ascendent is in the 9th house. It shows the matter held up in the courts. Venus, ruler of the 10th house is separating from conjunction Saturn in the 9th. There was a recent judgement holding up the project involving the top level of the Brasilian Government. Venus points to the President; she may be sympathetic to the court ruling. The matter is far from over, however. The Ascendent at 2 degrees says that it is still too early.
The ruler of the 2nd house, showing where the future is beginning, is Uranus. Uranus is retrograde in the 3rd house and in mutual reception with Neptune retrograde in the 2nd house. We note, the Moon is coming to square Neptune. Uranus retrograde in the 3rd house is also opposite the Sun in the 9th and square Pluto in the 1st. There is coming repeated fighting and political and legal wrangling over the matter. The fighting will probably become violent. Neptune in the 2nd house is showing criminal, dishonest interests in the matter; there are greedy people interested in seeing this project go through because they have eyes bigger than their stomachs and they are ignoring the dangers and the consequences. Neptune afflicted in the 2nd house is a sure sign of big financial losses, as well as losses of property, that threaten to hurt a lot of people in Brasil. The mutual reception of Neptune and Uranus shows tricky manipulations used to get around the wrangling. Crooks are in the works.
The Moon is in Scoprio, the sign of her fall. She is in the 11th house, the house of wishes, and is forming one aspect: square Neptune retrograde in the 2nd house. While the mutual reception of Neptune and Uranus may soften the blow, the Moon coming to square Neptune shows that what is being hoped for will be met with many complicated disappointments coming up. Moon in the sign of her fall acts in regretable ways. Moon is in the 11th house. The 11th house is also the house of the Parliament. The Parliament is headed for trouble in the matter. Moon coming to square Neptune is bad enough, but Neptune retrograde means the current action comes to something they will regret. The question then is who, the people, the Government of Brasil or the criminals behind the matter?
Stretching the matter, we may look to see who is stronger, the ruler of the 1st house or the 7th, the 1st denoting the people, and the 7th the opposition. Saturn, the ruler of the 1st house is exalted in Libra in the 9th and conjunct Venus, the ruler of the 10th. This means that the people have a good position with the courts and the President of Brasil at this time. The Moon rules the 7th house. The Moon is in the sign of her fall and is square Neptune. Clearly, the people now have the advantage.
How the matter ultimately ends is shown by the 4th house. The 4th house is ruled by Mars. Mars is in the 7th house showing international protests. We see Jupiter in the 4th house retrograde. That, in itself, might mislead us to believe that the matter will end fortunately. But, Jupiter is mutually applying to square with Mars. This means the matter will not end without a big fight. The world is becoming involved in the affair. Jupiter retrograde shows that the fight will be repeated. The criminals behind the project are incourageable. They will try again and again.
The planet behind the Moon is Venus. Moon is at 24 degrees Scorpio. Venus is at 19 degrees Libra. This says that the current state of the Belo Monte situation is connected to an important event of the nature of a cooperation that happened about five years ago. The prior Government of Brasil was involved in this affair.
Venus is behind the Moon, and Pluto stands in front of the Moon. This shows what looked good in the past will look bad in the future. Because the Ascendent is only at 2 degrees Capricorn, it is not possible at this point to say for whom it will look bad. This, at least, should encourage the opposition to fight to overturn the Belo Monte monstrosity.
