Scorpio 2015 in astrology

The Sun entered Scorpio at 6:48 PM GMD on October 23. A chart made for the moment of the Sun's entry in that sign shows in general what to expect for the month ending on November 22.

The aspects to note are as follows. Moon is separating from conjunction with Neptune in Pisces, applying to opposition Venus, Jupiter, and Mars in Virgo. Moon is also applying to sextile Pluto in Capricorn. These aspects of the Moon point to an atmosphere of confusion, waste, violence, and upset.
Mars at 17 degrees Virgo is in a critical degree, denoting crisis. The Moon in opposition with Mars points to violent military and/or police activity. Mars in Virgo points to such countries Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Greece, Croatia, Kurdistan, Switzerland and to such cities as Jerusalem and Paris.
Moon's opposition Mars may signal upset in areas related to Pisces and Virgo, namely oil, things connected with water, the ocean, destructive storms; also foods, medicines, labor, services both military and civil. Moon's opposition Mars, especially coming from her conjunction with Neptune, points to unexpected terrorist acts.
A mitigating aspect is found in Venus, Jupiter, and Pluto trine Pluto, and the Moon sextile Pluto. Pluto is in Capricorn. This shows a trend through all the turmoil to come to order. The Sun is also trine to Neptune. This will help calm down the situation.
Mercury is applying to opposition Uranus. Through it all we can expect the situation to be spiked with vicious lies, accusations, and threats. This will not help calm the situation this month.
The majority of planets in mutable signs shows the situation unstable and complicated.

The charts for the UK and EU have Moon and Neptune in the 11th house in opposition to Venus, Jupiter, and Mars in the 5th house. There is considerable bickering and confusion in the respective Parliaments. The Sun is in the 6th house showing a general feeling of distress in Europe. Saturn is in the 7th house applying to square Neptune to intensify the confusion and fear developing with respect to the influx of migrants. Moon rules the 3rd house. In conjunction with Neptune this points to misleading reports from news media.

The chart for Jerusalem has Moon and Neptune in the 10th house opposite Venus, Jupiter, and Mars in the 4th house. Mercury is in the 5th house in opposition to Uranus in the 11th. There is sharp arguing going on in the Knesset. The Moon's opposition with the planets in Virgo show continuing turmoil in the land through the month. It's not going away so fast.

The chart for the US has the Moon in the 2nd house opposite Venus, Jupiter, and Mars in the 8th. Mercury is also in the 8th. The main concern is money. Losses are indicated. The market will be volatile.

Astrological view of Israel's future in light of Netanyahu's speech to the UN

A horary astrological chart was drawn up t 4:16 PM, EDT in NYC on October 1, 2015 to look into the future of this matter. Here is what it shows.

The 2nd house of the chart rules the future. Mars is the ruler of the 2nd house. Mars is in interception in the 7th house at 4 degrees Virgo. 4 Degrees Virgo is a critical degree. Mars is in opposition to Neptune retrograde in the 1st house. The 7th house is the house of open enmity. There is danger of war. The situation is critical. The intercepted condition of Mars limits the scope of this danger, but does not negate it. There is terrorist violence coming against Israel to say the least.
Neptune is retrograde and intercepted in the 1st house. Neptune is a co-ruler of the 1st house. Opposite Mars it shows terrorism from inside Israel as well as from outside her borders. Neptune retrograde shows retro-action, meaning it is already in preparation. Neptune is at 7 degrees Pisces mutually approaching opposition with Mars. Mars and Neptune reach exact opposition in 3 degrees. In time the violence may spike in about three days, October 3, then next week around October 6th, and, as per horary astrological timing, in 3 weeks, or later October. The Sun, ruler of the 7th house is applying to opposition Uranus, ruler of the 1st house, confirming this prediction of escalating violence. The Sun and Uranus, however, are in the 8th and 2nd houses, succeedent houses, limiting the scope of the violence. If it were in cardinal houses it would mean out and out war.

Uranus, ruler of the 1st house is retrograde in the 2nd house. Uranus is a malefic planet. Retrograde, it says that what develops will be costly.

Mercury, the co-ruler of the 7th house, is combust and retrograde. The enemies are weak as shown by the combust condition, and change their plans as shown by the retrograde condition. Mercury is in wide trine to the Ascendent. These changes favor Israel.

Moon in this chart is at 00 degrees Gemini, at the threshold, or brink. Moon forms 8 aspects:

opposite Saturn
Square Mars
Trine Mercury retrograde
Square Neptune
Trine Sun
Square Jupiter
Sextile Uranus
Sextile Venus

In a nutshell this says what starts badly ends well. The matter gets off to a very bad, violent start, but ends well, and peacefully.

Israel is probably going to be attacked by the terrorists while the UN either remains silent or applauds the terrorists. The terrorists will, nonetheless, be put down. While no major war is coming to Israel at this point, the situation is critical.
