“Day of Rage” across the middle east

astrology of protestsAs I wrote a few weeks ago, Jupiter re-entering Aries in January set off a firestorm of anger across the middle east and north Africa.  At the time I wrote:

I can’t help but think this is a good thing, even though like all difficult planetary cycles it won’t be comfortable and is certain to be accompanied by bloodshed.  But balance must be achieved, and it’s the job of Uranus (and Jupiter, to a lesser extent) to emancipate the oppressed and when in a square to Pluto in Capricorn, to destroy (Pluto)  the old structures (Capricorn) that are already rotted and decayed.

Uranus enters Aries in the later part of March, but Jupiter will move ever close to a square to Pluto that culminates in mid-February.  Jupiter brings confidence and demands to be heard – Jupiter after all was the King of all of the gods on Mt. Olympus.  Jupiter refuses to take a back seat to the Lord of the Underworld, no matter how much destruction will ensue.

Today Jupiter is two degrees away from that challenging square to Pluto, and sure enough, unrest is spreading like wildfire as protesters take to the streets all over the world.

  • , protesters have encountered resistance against their “Day of Rage” against the Qaddafi regime which has left at least four dead.
  • In Iraq, blood has flowed in anti-government protests in and in .
  • In , protests continued for a seventh day and become more violent.
  • At least three protesters in have been killed and at least 60 are missing in anti-discrimination demonstrations there.

This fever is likely to continue as long as Jupiter (in fiery Aries) is […]

The astrology of Mubarak’s resignation

Tem Tarriktar of posted a chart of the resignation on Facebook yesterday with all of the associated comments.  A link to the was posted which includes a time stamp of 6:02 pm Cairo time so that is the chart that I have used.  Another commenter reports that Al Jazeera’s live blog of the events in Egypt reveals that Mubarak actually turned over the reins to the vice-president Thursday night, but I am using the formal announcement to the public as the time for this chart.

?astrology of Mubarak resignationAny event is a snapshot of a moment in time, and the astrological chart for that moment sets the tone for how that event will unfold.  This is called “mundane” astrology.  There are some extremely interesting things about this chart.  First of all, the Moon is angular at the Midheaven, suggesting that the people (represented by the Moon) have taken over the government.  There is a lot of talk right now about this being a military coup, and we see this represented by a tight conjunction of the Sun (the leadership of the country) to Mars (the military).

Neptune is angular on the descendant, the cusp of the seventh house.  Since Neptune is associated with mass hysteria and deception as well as ideals and the descendant involves relations with other nations, but also alliances that are forged within the country itself.  In this fever for revolution, no one really knows who their allies are and we are likely to see this become a big issue in the weeks to come.

This difficulty in creating strong alliances (Neptune) that will support the people (the […]

More musings on the Egyptian revolution

Egypt astrologyI was listening to the BBC news coverage of the momentous events in Egypt, and one of the journalists remarked that the protesters in Egypt no longer have any fear of the oppressive government.  His point was that once the inhibitions of fear have been broken there is no turning back, that any attempt to reassert control will just inflame the situation.

This comment, and the events unfolding in Egypt, perfectly mirror the astrological symbolism at work here.  Jupiter, bringing an expansive confidence and urge for a life with more meaning, is in Aries which is all about bursting through one’s fear and finding the courage deep within to fight for that which is most important.

An Egyptian American expressed it :

As the people of my homeland, Egypt, stage a popular uprising against the 30-year dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak, the White Stripes keep singing in my head: “I’m gonna fight ’em off /A seven-nation army couldn’t hold me back!”

I don’t know if Jack and Meg of the White Stripes are watching the breathtaking developments taking place in my country. However, their thumping, pumpingis a perfect anthem for the defiance and adrenaline-fueled determination that must be propelling the tens of thousands of courageous, protesting Egyptians.

And against what odds!

In addition to Jupiter entering Aries, the Sun and Mars have been within a few degrees of a conjunction in Aquarius over the past week, a conjunction which doesn’t culminate until February 4th.  Since the Sun and Mars began to align we have seen protests spread like wildfire throughout North Africa and the middle east.  Mars is the ruler of Aries, the sign that Jupiter is in right now, and the fire […]

And the revolution begins.

astrology of Egypt protestsJupiter entered Aries last week for the first time since leaving that fiery sign of war last fall and retreating back into Pisces. You may remember that Jupiter and Uranus were conjunct in Aries back in late May and the summer of 2010, coinciding with the rise of revolutionary fervor in Thailand, Krygystan,  Israel.  This was also the time of the first big Wikileaks.

Aries is all about self-preservation and self-initiation, and Jupiter’s entry into Aries means that it is getting closer to a challenging face-off against Pluto in Capricorn, where power (Pluto) is compressed and channeled through governments and corporations (Capricorn).  The writing is on the wall, and when Uranus joins Jupiter in Aries this fever of revolution and surge of protests against the establishment (Capricorn) in a call for liberation (Uranus) will continue to escalate.

Last week it was Sudan, Jordan and Tunisia, and now it is Egypt, Lebanon and Yemen whose people are rising against the oppressive government in that country.  This puts the United States in a difficult position – on the one hand, we supposedly stand for freedom and personal liberty, yet the regimes that we support in the middle east are repressive and corrupt.  Still, those regimes provide some stability in a region that has the ability to erupt like a powderkeg in the upcoming Uranus/Pluto square.

I can’t help but think this is a good thing, even though like all difficult planetary cycles it won’t be comfortable and is certain to be accompanied by bloodshed.  But balance must be achieved, and it’s the job of Uranus (and Jupiter, to a lesser extent) to emancipate the oppressed and when in a square to Pluto in Capricorn, to destroy (Pluto)  the […]

Keith Olbermann loses his job

Keith Olbermann astrologyWhether you love Keith Olbermann or hate him, there is no doubt that he was a groundbreaking journalist during the administration of Bush II, reporting on stories that the mainstream media ignored and bringing a fresh new perspective to evening news.

You can read my original post on Olbermann here, and my post on his November suspension here.  There are rumors that he was fired, but that hasn’t been confirmed and that he has signed a nondisclosure areement.

It’s interesting that this happens just as Jupiter enters Aries, giving a new and more brash expression to Jupiter’s confidence and braggodocio.  Olbermann’s progressed Sun is at 29 degrees Pisces, preparing to move into Aries in a few months.  Jupiter just moved into Aries today, so Friday morning when the agreement to terminate Olbermann was signed Jupiter was at 29 degrees Pisces, sitting right on his progressed Sun (the exact transit occurred on January 18th).  In addition, the previous week (January 12th) transiting Jupiter made an exact trine to Jupiter in Olbermann’s chart, along with transiting Uranus.  This is a double whammy of expansion and new opportunities for change.

Transits of Jupiter generally serve to liberate us from something that has been stifling us.  Comcast is preparing to purchase NBC Universal, the conglomerate that owns MSNBC, and there has been talk for months of a political crackdown once that sale is finalized.

Transiting Uranus (rebellion and radical change will conjoin Olbermann’s progressed Sun in early March, stimulating him to engage in new and different projects that significantly alter his trajectory.  His progressed Sun moves into Aries in late September, beginning a new 30-year cycle.  Regardless of what happens, Mr. Olbermann is in for something […]
