Horary astrological chart: is war is coming to Korea?

Upon reading "despite warnings from the North, the U.S. and South Korea are pushing ahead with naval exercises in response to an hour-long bombardment of artillery fire on the island of Yeonpyeong" the question came up will there be a war. To find the answer a horary astrological chart was cast in Albuquerque, NM (106W39; 35N05) on November 26th at 10:43 PM MST. Here is what it shows.

The Sun in this chart is in the 4th house in Sagittarius and rules the 1st house. Uranus is retrograde in Pisces in the 8th house and rules the 7th. The Moon is in Leo in the 12th house. The Moon is past trine to Sun and is forming no aspect Uranus but she is forming a sextile with Saturn in the 2nd house. Saturn is the co-ruler of the 7th. The Sun is also forming a sextile to Saturn. Saturn is in the 2nd house saying protection is required.

The Sun is forming a square with Uranus retrograde in Pisces. Uranus retrograde reluctantly backs down, but will in the future turn around and act up again. Uranus corresponds with Chinese backed North Korea in this chart. It is unlikely that there will be a war in the near future although the situation holds dire meanings.

Uranus is also in mutual reception with Neptune in the 7th house. This means that the potentially warring parties will be looking for a way around an open conflict through chicanery. There will be some secret military action taken but an all out war will not happen now.

Neptune is in the 7th house of this chart. The Moon is coming to opposition Neptune. The part of Assassination (ASC plus the ruler of the 12th house minus Neptune) is applying to opposition the Moon in the 12th house. There is the probability of an assassination by secret military agents.

Mars and Mercury are in the 5th house in Sagittarius coming to square Jupiter and Uranus in the 8th and sextile Neptune in the 7th. Harsh and defiant, even incendiary diplomatic words will be spoken.

The Moon's final aspect is sextile Venus just before Venus crosses over into Scorpio. This means that in the 11th hour peace will prevail at least for the time being. There won't be a war. But it will get pretty close.

It is probable that China is behind North Korean aggression and the US is behind South Korean aggression. North and South Korea are pawns in a game being played by China and the US. The bone of contention between China and the US is about the serious monetary and trade issues.

The coming exact conjunction of Pluto (4:03 Capricorn) and the North Lunar Node (4:15 Capricorn) is exactly sextile North Korea's Mars and in no aspect any of South Korea's planets. North Korea's Mars rules its ASC and 12th house. The current series of events is bringing severe misfortune to North Korea. North Korea's Mars is in the 11th house and also rules the 5th house. Nefarious diplomatic influences are involved in North Korea's governance at this time. Pluto's conjunction the node at 4 Capricorn is also exactly opposite China's Uranus. China is in a period when foreign diplomatic relations are in danger of being disrupted. The conjunction Pluto and the Node is also opposite, although not exact to the degree, the US Jupiter showing up the currency matter. Pluto compounds already complicated problems.

Uranus and Neptune in the horary chart are mutual reception. Mars is sextile Neptune and then square Uranus. Uranus and Neptune mutual reception causes the Mars square to be baffled. There is trickery and deception. Secret military activity leading to a possible assassination is again shown. This chart shows more than one indication of a coming assassination.

The Sun applying widely to a retrograde Uranus, Sun ruling the 1st and Uranus ruling the 7th shows approach to war but the "enemy" is backing down, and, because Uranus is mutual reception Neptune, is trying to get around the matter. Sun forming sextile with Saturn (Saturn rules 7 also) is not going to war. And the Moon's final aspect sextile Venus is not about to go to war - at least for the time being.

Neptune in the 7th house is an ominous sign for mundane astrology, especially if Neptune is afflicted, and if the ruler of the 12th house is in opposition to the Part of Assassination. In this horary chart, Moon who rules the 12th house is in opposition to the Part of Assassination and is coming to opposition to Neptune. There will be treachery and secret military involvement in the matter. Whether we hear about an assassination or not is a question. What is reported in the news will be of a questionable nature. The truth won't come out.

Horary astrological view of the decision of China and Russia to drop the dollar

Upon reading an article telling that China and Russia have cut a deal, cutting out the dollar, the question came up what affect will that have on the dollar. A horary chart was made in Albuquerque, NM at 10:45 PM on November 24th to find out. Here is what it says.

Mercury rules the 2nd house of this chart. The 2nd house shows the dollar. What happens to Mercury happens to the dollar. Mercury is at 23 degrees Sagittarius in the 5th house and is forming a square aspect to Jupiter in the 8th house, a sextile to Neptune in the 7th house, a square to Uranus retrograde in the 8th house and a sextile to Venus in the 3rd house. While all is not well all is not without hope. The situation, nonetheless, is difficult.

Mercury in the 5th house shows that the bank is speculating on the dollar. The dollar is being gambled on. The Fed is risking disaster at the expense of the people.

Mercury's first aspect square Jupiter in the 8th house shows inflation and much squandering of money coming. Mercury's second aspect sextile Neptune in the 7th house shows secret deals being made with foreign banking institutions and governments. Mercury's third aspect square Uranus retrograde shows repeated troubles with these international banks involving sudden catastrophes such as what we see happening now in Europe, disintegrating conditions and paralyzing circumstances, and foreign banksters attempting to move in to take over, dominate and control this country's financial mess. Mercury's final aspect is sextile Venus in the 3rd house showing the matter will, despite all, yield an opportunity to make an improvement. Still, losses are inevitable. The dollar will lose its value along with the Euro. The Euro may tank. Europe will turn against the banksters and the EU may be undone or severely compromised. When Spain goes under the whole structure of the EU will unravel.

Now, the Moon's aspects are important to note. The Moon is what shows the course of development and change along the way. The Moon is at 16 degrees Cancer in the 11th house. Behind the Moon is Uranus at 26 degrees Pisces. This means that the current state of affairs has an important connection to events of the nature of a reorganization involving international financial dealings that happened ten weeks ago, or sometime in the middle of this past September. The announcement made by China and Russia was carefully planned. The insistence of Bernanke to speculate on the value of the dollar tipped the scales. Our relations with Russia and China will change as a result.

The Moon is separating from square aspect to Saturn showing the belabored economic crisis this country has been in these past many months and under which we are laboring still. The Moon is forming a counterparallel to the Sun, a trine to Jupiter, a counter parallel to Pluto, a trine to Uranus and a square to Venus. The final aspect of the Moon is a square to Venus showing that the matter, indeed, will involve a loss and a waste of money. Moon forming trine to Jupiter gives hope for money increasing and Moon trine Uranus suggests productive international relations. But the square Venus being the last aspect the Moon forms says that we, in fact, do need to guard against coming losses.

The dollar will suffer. The banks are up to tricks. The Fed is gambling.

Astrological view of the TSA affair - what's coming up.

After reading and looking at so many accounts of the humiliation suffered by so many people at the hands of the TSA at the airports a horary astrological chart was drawn up in Albuquerque, NM on November 19th, 2010 at 5:52 PM MST to get a look at what's coming up. The following is what the chart shows.

With 13 degrees Gemini rising Mercury is the ruler of the chart. Mercury rules travels and agencies. We find Mercury in Sagittarius in the 7th house applying to exact conjunct Mars, Mars ruling the 6th house. This shows the very angry mood of the travelers who are coming to open conflict with the aggressive, even brutish people that are in the employ of the government.

The moon rules the 2nd house of the chart. The 2nd house shows what is coming up. The 2nd and 3rd houses are both in the same sign Cancer. This ties the near future to traveling and the moon, ruling both these houses, is in the 12th house. The 12th house is the house of misfortune. Unfortunate developments are looming up in the matter.

The end of the matter is shown by the 4th house. The sun is the ruler of the 4th house in this chart. The sun is in the 6th house. The 6th house is the house of distress.

The moon is coming to opposition with the sun. This chart was made when the moon was approaching full. The full moon is at 29 degrees Taurus conjunct the Pleiades aka the weeping sisters. This full moon brings to the full a weeping matter. Something or some things will happen that will cause weeping amongst the people. The 29th degree of Taurus is a most unfortunate degree. The full moon also promises a full confrontation of the people with the TSA workers. What is looming up is a disgrace to the TSA. There will be a lot of public outcry. The government, as shown by the the moon coming to square Neptune in the 10th house and Neptune in mutual reception with Uranus in the 11th house of the chart, will, of course, try to cover up the situation with lies while making some disrespectful token adjustments to assuage public wrath. It won't work. The government is resisting the public. Public outrage will force a change in the long run.
