Astrological prediction on the Hague ruling on the South China Sea
A horary chart was cast on July 12 at 10:08 PM in NYC on the question what the Hague ruling would come to. The South China Sea arbitral tribunal in The Hague delivered a one-sided ruling in the case initiated by the Philippines. It is my opinion that there are a few reasons for attempting to do away with China's legitimate territorial claims. First and most obvious is the oil in the South China Sea. If the area is claimed by the Philippines, a willing puppet of the western powers behind this developing conflict, the multi-national oil companies located in the west will get to take the oil. Secondly, China is not included in the TPP negotiations. This has far reaching implications, especially if the TPP goes through. You can connect the dots.
The horary chart shows the following. The ASC signifies China and the DSC signifies the west. The ASC is ruled by Uranus, and the DSC is ruled by the Sun. The question came up if the situation would lead to a war. For that to happen the rulers of the ASC and DSC would have to be in afflictive aspect, either by opposition or square, and in the angles (the 1st, 10th, 7th, and 4th houses). Here we see the Sun coming to square Uranus confirming that conflict is developing, but the square is happening between the 2nd and 5th houses. It means economic conflict is coming.
The 2nd house is also the house of what's coming up. We see Uranus in the 2nd house. China is concerned about her territories, holdings, and wealth. The Sun coming to Square Uranus shows the west moving to challenge it. The ruler of the 2nd house is Mars. Mars is in the 9th house, in Scorpio. The 9th house has to do with foreign trade. We also see the Moon in Scorpio, the sign of her fall, applying to conjunction with Mars. The Moon's final aspect in this chart is that conjunction. It is a bad sign. It says there may very well be conflict, and, if so, it will affect trade relations and financial agreements. There is a way out. The Moon is in mutual reception with Venus by house placement. It shows diplomacy.
