Upon news of the escalating conditions over Syria between Turkey (NATO) and Russia, this question came up. A horary chart was drawn up on November 29 at 4:27 PM EDT in NYC to see where it is trending.
The rules for determining whether there will be a war involve the rulers of the 1st and 7th houses and the Moon. There will be a war if the rulers of the 1st and 7th houses are square or in opposition to one another from angular houses. In this chart, Mercury, ruler of the 1st house, is forming square to Jupiter, ruler of the 7th house from the 7th house. Mercury and Jupiter are both in signs of their detriment, bringing out their worst, and are in mutual reception, agreeing to disagree.
War is coming.
The Moon is at 28 degrees 11 minutes in the 3rd house opposite the Part of Fortune at 28 degrees Capricorn 48 minutes in the 9th house. It confirms the prediction. It does not bode well.
How far it goes is not clear at this point.
