Kim Jong Il and the Chiron Neptune conjunction

photograph from Reuters. News reports from South Korea say that Kim Jong Il, the despotic leader of North Korea, is suffering from pancreatic cancer and was diagnosed last summer.  Rumors of health problems have been swirling around him for months.

For background, you may find it interesting to read my  from back in 2006, and here is the noon chart (no birthtime is available).

Kim’s chart shows that he has a deeply revolutionary nature, with the Sun in the sign of Aquarius, sign of the rebel and the eccentric, in a challenging square to Uranus, the planetary ruler of Aquarius.  We call this a “double whammy” which connects Kim’s Sun, or his Essential Self, to the principle of radical change and innovation.

Mars in his chart is in the expansive sign of Sagittarius, a symbol of a love of freedom and adventure and a dislike of being tied down.  However, his Mars is in a challenging square to Neptune which clouds and confuses (Neptune) his desires (Mars) and erodes his confidence and inspiration.

It is these two astrological combinations that are being stressed right now by current planetary transits.  The triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune has been sitting right on his Sun for the past six months and making a square aspect to Uranus in his chart, activating his rebellious tendencies and creating significant disturbances in his energy system.  The presence of Neptune here exacerbates the tendency towards delusion and confusion.  It is no wonder he has ramped up the violence of his rhetoric over the past year under these influences.

The square of Neptune to Mars can cause depletion in the body’s vitality, and last year transiting Pluto was passing over Mars in Kim’s […]

Why did Sarah quit?

Sarah Palin has resigned as Governor of the state of Alaska, effectively dooming any hopes she has to run for President in 2012. This announcement came as a shock to political watchers and to conservatives whose support remained consistent despite the teen pregnancy of her daughter and ethics violations.

The resignation comes on the heels of a dramatic and very public feud between Palin and David Letterman who made some bad jokes that were in very bad taste about Palin’s daughter Bristol, who bore a child out of wedlock.  But this was just the culmination of a media frenzy that dogged her from the moment she was chosen by John McCain to run as his vice-presidential candidate.  Some say that  just tipped her over the edge.

You can read more about Sarah Palin’s astrological chart here, and the noon chart is here. (There is a 4:40 pm birth time floating around but that has never been verified by any legitimate source. However, Leo is rising in that chart and Uranus, ruling surprise and sudden change, was transiting the progressed Midheaven of that chart at the time she was nominated last year.)

I suspect that Palin’s husband Todd may have been behind her resignation.  He has evidently been her greatest supporter and played an active role in the care of their children, and transiting Pluto (death, rebirth and transformation) has been in a challenging square formation to Venus (relationships) in her chart since January (it came very close last summer at the time she was nominated), and the second phase of that cycle is coming to a head now.  A transit of Pluto to Venus can be very difficult for a marriage that is not in good shape, and any unsettled business is sure to come […]

The astrology of North Korea

Before you can have an accurate astrological profile, you must have an accurate date of birth.  In a mundane chart of a nation this gets a little tricky.  What is the moment of birth?  Is it the moment that the nation is announced?  Is it when the constitution is signed?  Ratified?  New leaders elected?

In my online research today I found several different dates used by astrologers for North Korea.  There is a chart for August 10, 1945, the date that the US War Department decided to partition the country at the 38th parallel.  There is a chart for September 10, 1948 which appears to have come originally from Nick Campion’s Book of World Horoscopes and is incorrect.

In my view, using the August 1945 date for North Korea is a bit like using the time of conception for a birthchart.  Information from the US State Department and several Korean websites confirm that the actual birthing of the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (DPRK) was proclaimed by Kim Il Sung on September 9, 1948, and this is the day that is celebrated by the North Korean people as the founding anniversary.

Chiron in the comments section suggested that we must also look at the revision of the North Korean constitution, but additional research reveals that the constitution has been revised many times including in 1992 and 1998.  Because the government did not change, I’m inclined to disregard these charts.

I have not been able to find a suitable time for the North Korea chart so I will use noon as Robert Blaschke does in  for The Mountain Astrologer.

The Sun in the  is in Virgo where it is in the final stage of a transit of Saturn. […]

An astrology chart for North Korea

There are several charts floating around for North Korea, and none of them are sourced.  Many astrologers use the August 10, 1945 date.  At midnight on August 10-11 member of the US War Department made the decision to divide Korea at the 38th parallel.

Jeff Jawer of Star IQ and Marjorie Orr use a chart for September 10, 1948.   uses a chart for midnight on September 9, 1948 and this appears to be the date that is celebrated by the DPRK.  However, it appears that the constitution for the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea was actually signed on September 5 1948.

I’m continuing my research and have sent out some inquiries to Jeff, Marjorie and Robert, but if any of you have some good information please post a comment!

More on the astrology of the new Iranian Revolution

Most news reports are now speaking of revolution in Iran.  As I wrote a few days ago, transiting Uranus (revolution and sudden change) is passing right over Mars in the chart of the Islamic Republic of Iran. writes:

Mars in this chart is in the 8th house and ruler of the 9th house (Aries cusp), the Sun (in Aries), and co-ruler of the 4th house (Scorpio cusp). Thus, this transit is shaking up the rulership of the country (the Sun), bringing the feel of deeply hidden rancor coming out into the open and causing transformation (8th house), and convulsing the people and the foundation of the country (4th house). In addition, there is the inflammation, anger, confrontation, and sudden eruption of rebellion and violence inherent in a Mars/Uranus combination. This transit will continue through late August, exact on August 23, and then return in February 2010. It has been intensively activated by the transits of the Sun (25 Gemini) and Mars (10 Taurus) in the past few days, culminating around 7:30 PM local time on June 17 with the exact square of transiting Sun and transiting Uranus.

Looking a little more deeply into the Iran charts, this revolution, if that’s what it becomes, likely has its roots in the conjunction of the progressed Sun (the national identity) in the Iran chart to Chiron (the wound to the soul) back in March of 2008.  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected in 2005 as a populist – someone who understood the common people.  Instead, he imposed cultural restrictions on the rights of women and forced university professors and scientists to retire.  His promises have not come to pass, and many Iranians want a change that comes with more personal freedom and liberty.

We see this desire for liberty with the transit of […]
