The war between Israel and Palestine continues to affect the whole world. Before the events unfolded, we witnessed politicians investing in the war and defense industry through the stock market. Significant changes in economic parameters globally raise many different questions…
Astrology, on the other hand, always allows us to evaluate events from a holistic point of view. We can observe the whole picture through the charts. In this context, we should know that eclipses are an important factor in our observation of world events.
In mundane astrology, we can observe the effects of disasters, civil wars, genocides, cold wars, major economic depressions, revolutions, acts of terrorism and hot wars that we see today.
There are many factors in mundane astrology that can point to important turning points: – Major planetary cycles
– Planetary conjunctions
– Declination Cycles
– Solar flares and sunspot cycles
– Saros Cycles
– Mars cycles and retrogrades
We can roughly summarize the headlines in this way. Since we are facing these events on the eve of a total eclipse, we also need to evaluate what came before.
As you know, Jupiter and Saturn made a conjunction at the end of 2020. This conjunction marked a special time cycle, which was the 240-year elemental cycle transition with the resources we have had since Ptolemy. We have already mentioned that the power is now shifting towards the air elemental zone.
If we determine the region centered on the world map of Ptolemy’s time from the book “Astrology of the World I: The Ptolemaic Inheritance” by Benjamin Dykes, who made great contributions to astrology with his valuable translations and research articles, according to the four regions we draw from this center point, the air element remains on the north-east side.
Notice that Ukraine is located on the vertical line, and there have been consecutive large-scale earthquakes in Turkey and Syria on the horizontal line.
If we say that the celestial energy has changed direction with the effect of the major planetary conjunction, we can state that this change has also led to changes in the socio-economic order of other large capital countries.
While the vertical line is pitting America and Russia against each other, the horizontal line is creating changes in the governance systems of important regions such as Arabia, China, India and Taiwan.
America’s main strategy in World War II, which brought atomic bombs to the world, was to make important moves for the cold war with Russia that would last for years. One of these was the “Green Belt” configuration.
Starting from Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Uzbekistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, the US made strategic moves to add Islamic culture and value to the Green Belt. In this way, the Russian regime would remain within its borders and the world would run its economy on the US currency.
Starting in 1939, WWII was astrologically under the influence of the Saturn Jupiter conjunction cycle (1940 conjunction). This conjunction was in Taurus. The next conjunction in 1960 was again in the earth element Capricorn and this time the Vietnam war was seen. In the cold war cycle that lasted until 1990, when the USSR dissolved, the earth element emphasis was now complete. Even in 1981, Jupiter conjunct Saturn was in Libra, the air element, and loose monetary policy started in the US economy. They experienced an important process we call deep recession.
As you can see, by observing the cycles, we can realize what the transits trigger. As we work not only with these two planets, but also with the cycles of other major generation planets, we can unravel much deeper layers. Let’s stay on topic here and get to the point we need to understand. The war we are observing right now is not limited to the region where it is taking place. It is changing the balance of the whole world.
Eclipses are the triggers of these great cycles. On October 14th, before the Solar Eclipse, the war started. Let us know that traditional astrologers have also considered the events that take place before the eclipse within the eclipse energy.
For the world events that coincide with these moments that we call pre-eclipse, ancient astrologers have said the following: The events that take place before the eclipse (about 2 months) work
depending on fate. In other words, we cannot intervene in the matters described by the eclipse chart, we do not have the will. They are the stories of the unfolding of pre-planned actions, and we cannot bring these effects towards resolution.
Again, the ancients said that if the eclipse takes place on the south lunar node side, its effects will result in negativity and loss. We observe this situation again in the eclipse chart. In addition, the star Denebola, which we observe in civil unrest, rebellion, revolution and conflictual events, is aligned parallel to Jupiter in this eclipse. Jupiter in Taurus is an important indicator affecting beliefs.
We can associate beliefs, foreign cultures, political administration and global trade with Jupiter. The star Denebola unfortunately describes great conflicts that are irresistible under these topics. Also, Ceres, the asteroid describing genocides, is in conjunction with the star Acrux at 12° Scorpio in the eclipse chart. The star Acrux is the alpha star of the constellation Crux, which symbolizes Christianity and the balance between beliefs with its cross-shaped appearance. Ptolemy attributed this star to the nature of Jupiter.
Another important aspect in the eclipse chart is Venus opposition Saturn. Ptolemy says in aphorism LXXX: If Venus is conjunct Saturn and has any ruler in the 7th house, one will have a fake origin.
We can adapt this aphorism to the eclipse as follows. Eclipse lord Venus is placed in a separeting opposition to Saturn. Opposite aspects can work like the 7th house. Therefore, the opposing aspect in the eclipse chart has traces that a false image is being created in the public opinion about the Israeli attacks.
Ptolemy in his aphorism XCVII: “If the lord of the new moon or the full moon is in an angle, the questioned event takes place quickly.”
If we adapt this aphorism to the eclipse, the eclipse chart is also a new moon moment (solar eclipse) and Venus, the Libra ruler, make a seperating aspect with Mars and Saturn. In fact, it indicates that the event may take place in pre-planned actions. Or we can say that since the attacks took place before the eclipse, the seperating aspects can give these dates.
Let’s take a look at AstroCartoGraphy:
We see the lines formed by the planetary combinations of Pluto and Mars surrounding the Israel region from two different sides. Mars, Pluto square unfortunately clearly shows the effects of war, bombs, death etc.
When we examine the lines; we see the DSC conjunction of the midpoint of luminaries (Sun, Moon) and Pluto. (West side) In astrocartography, DSC conjunctions clearly explain strategies, country borders and relations with other countries. But here Pluto, which affects the masses, unfortunately indicates that events will be triggered that will affect not only the borders of the country but also the whole world.
On the eastern side, we observe the line coming directly down from Lebanon. It also affects Israel with an orb of 1°30′ (about 170km, 100mi), which means that if we create a chart in these regions at the time of the eclipse, Mars and Pluto’s midpoints settlements will conjoin with Dsc at there. Unfortunately, this is a direct indication of a hot war.
Another technique we use in locational astrology is asteroids. Ana Andrade, who was our guest at the Locational Astrology Webinars we organized in our school last year, conveyed to us her valuable studies on place-named asteroids. In the light of these studies, we can examine the relationship with Arabia regions while using Arabia asteroid in the charts. We can also use the asteroid called Israel here.
The asteroid Israel (7507) was discovered by Frank Pieter Israel, a Dutch-born retired astronomer and professor who heads the organization Skepsis. The asteroid is in the ASC placement in the war onset moment chart and is in a 20° exact square aspect to the Moon, which indicates the people in world astrology.
Recently, the esteemed Maurice Fernandez also made a post referring to the Israel asteroid. For this reason, we observe that asteroids shed light on the events in world astrology through shares in the international area.
The asteroid Arabia (1157) is named after the Arabian Peninsula and was discovered by astronomer Karl Reinmuth at the Heidelberg Observatory. It is in exact conjunction with Venus, the ruler of the eclipse sign Libra, at 5°.
We can associate Venus with politics and policy. They are in mutual reception with Mercury in Libra. We should pay attention to the connection of the war with Arab countries. Venus, the lord of the Libra stellium in the chart, indicates that the Arab countries have strategic importance in this war and are in a position to determine the direction of the war.
There is no element of fire in the chart in terms of planetary placements (except Chiron and North Node). I can state with my experimental studies that fire works more emphatically in this type of charts. If there is no fire element in the sky, it is tried to be present on earth. In short, the lack of fire in the sky increases the presence of moves such as chaos, action, provocation, action, attack.
I wish all wars to end as soon as possible…
