Upon reading of the explosion in Iran, in light of the indications shown in the full Moon chart of 11/10, the question whether there will be war came up. A chart was drawn in Phoenix, AZ to find out. Here is what it says.
The probability of war is now strong. The Moon, ruler of the 1st house in the 1st house is coming to square Saturn, the ruler of the 7th house. According to the rules of horary astrology, when the rulers of the 1st and 7th houses are found to form a square aspect from the angles (the 1st house is an angular house) they point to war. The only sign that softens the probability is that Saturn is in the 5th house. The probability is strong nonetheless; the Moon casts the square from the 1st house. If there is to be a war it would involve Iran and Israel if not others. Let's hope it doesn't happen. But what did just happen in Iran, in which 17 people were killed, is very serious.
Looking more closely at the chart, Cancer on the 1st and 2nd houses ties the near future to the present. The future of the situation is tied to the present condition. Moon in the 1st and Uranus in the 10th house, with the angles in cardinal and mutable signs, show impatience in the matter. Moon in Cancer will move to conclude the matter quickly. Mars in the 3rd house will bring up arguments. If the matter is to be stopped, Mars in the 3rd may be the one to do it, depending on who is arguing with whom. Nonetheless, Capricorn on the 7th house cusp casts a shadow over the chart and tells us to pay attention to the bad signs. Jupiter in Taurus is behind the Moon. He says that something of the nature of travel or a communication one week ago led up to the present situation. The Moon's final aspect is square Saturn. This means that the matter will end badly. The best we can say for it is that what happened in Iran is very ominous. The situation in the region has deteriorated, and will escalate to worse violence. The probability of war is strong at this point.
