We will be sure to see stories of war orphans, children who survive family tragedies, heroic or quick thinking children who somehow rise to the occasion in a traumatic situation or "revolutionary" children. Old themes of "abandonment" or fending for yourself may surface especially if you are experiencing a relationship rift or have divorce memories from childhood. Birthdays in very late Aries and early Taurus, as well as those close to 22 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius will experience some of these "relationship" themes, if not the central theme itself, as the midpoint of the Cardinal cross falls across this axis, and Mercury retrograde will cross over the same.
... treachery with words, road rage, heated tempers and temperatures, trouble with relatives (including the passing on in some cases, moving out in others) disruptive travel and communications, electrical systems failures or car engine fires, choices in relationships (separation or reparation) media matters, and a general sense of tension and potential for problems in the neighborhood or in your " local" vicinity and with or involving relatives * siblings to extended * and/or close friends from early in your life ( old school chums, people you consider "close as family").
In predictive astrology 22 degrees is a degree portending violence, 29 degrees is the "end of the matter".
The eclipse of April 15, 1995 brought with it a number of disasters, not the least of which were deadly gas attacks by a terrorist cult on commuters in a Japanese subway, and the bombing of the federal office building in Oklahoma City by right-wing militia members. Now according to astrological theory, eclipses are 'seed times' or moments when the higher dominions make a fresh impress on the lower. Eclipses have an orb of influence, often showing effect beforehand when events are seemingly drawn toward a basin of attraction, and then leave residual traces in their wake. In the eclipse chart of April 15 we find the Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries opposite Moon in Libra and all three in T-square to the Uranus-Neptune conjunction in Capricorn/Aquarius, which also fell on the detrimental Saturn-Pluto midpoint. Among the other notable aspects for the eclipse was a Venus-Saturn conjunction which fell midpoint the Moon, and Mars in Leo, and a waxing sextile between Uranus and Pluto, which might have played a more minor role were it not for these two planets also being in antiscion.
Dennis Elwell was so convinced that a potentially dangerous situation was building (and it was!) that he went public with a prediction saying there would be a crop of maritime disasters surrounding that eclipse. His confidence was boosted by the realization that the eclipse fell on the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter returning to their places held previously at the time the mighty ship went down. Uranus was to become stationary that month, and at the precise degree of Aquarius that was rising at the time of the sinking. There was indeed a slight up-surgence of emergencies at sea in the months preceding the eclipse, including the loss of the Achille Lauro, but nothing of the sort near the magnitude prophesied.
As it happened, I have maintained a correspondence with Dennis for some years and I wrote to him on the day of the eclipse about the non-occurrence of the predicted disaster. I wanted to make the point that 'disasters' had happened elsewhere which could clearly be linked to the eclipse. This is the relevant paragraph:
"I've noticed that the April 15 eclipse also has a lot to say about the subway gassing in Japan. According to 'Bills', the nation of Japan is ruled by Libra - and this eclipse, as you know, takes place across Aries-Libra with the Sun conj Mercury - transport. Sun/Merc opp moon are T-square Neptune. Neptune not only rules ships and the sea, but 'gasses' as well. Neptune in mutual reception with Saturn (in draconic-Leo) - a cold-hearted religious fanatic espousing an apocalyptic doctrine? - Neptune is still conj Uranus - the 'out-of-the-blue' gas attack - and they are both draconic-Gemini - transport again."
About 10 days later a sceptical friend of mine reading that paragraph pointed out that he was mildly impressed by the links to the Japan gas attack, but not overwhelmed as it was, after all a retrospective view. But, he pointed out, what was much more impressive was that with hardly any 'tweaking' at all, the same paragraph could be read as a graphic prediction of what took place just 3 days later - the horrific bombing in Oklahoma City. And, of course, he was right. Without intending to, by describing the Japanese events I was also unwittingly predicting the Oklahoma bomb.
Now, focusing astrologically for a moment on the two aforementioned calamities, we can see how the aspects of the eclipse chart have a lot to say about both. According to Bills, the nation of Japan is ruled by Libra, and this was of course the axis across which the eclipse took place. Aries-Libra is also descriptive of remonstrance in both cases. The Sun fell conjunct Mercury - transport, as in commuters, or office workers and vehicles, such as vans - in T-square to Neptune-Uranus in Capricorn - the 'out-of- the-blue gas attack by the followers of a religious fanatic espousing an apocalyptic doctrine'. But Neptune not only rules gasses, it also rules chemical fertilizer and gasoline, the components of the bomb used in Oklahoma City. The eclipse of April 15 fell across the horizon at sunrise in Oklahoma City, in T-square to a 10th house Uranus-Neptune conjunction, with Mars (aggression, injury, bombings, fire) in the 5th house (children) by the Koch and Placidus systems. Bills gives rulership of Oklahoma City to Leo, and it is worth noting too that Mars in Leo was exactly at nadir for the moment of the blast. Venus-Saturn conjunct and midpoint Moon-Mars - cold-hearted attacks by right-wing militants on the populace. Saturn-Venus - the federal building, government real estate. Uranus-Pluto - radical upheaval - and, in both of these cases, the surprising abruptness of terrorist activities. Pluto, of course, is both the 'underground' and the carnage as well. These events were all astrologically linked to the eclipse that April - in fact, the day of the Oklahoma City bombing there was a second gassing in a Japanese subway.
Witnesses describe scene of terror at Norway campSUNDVOLLEN, Norway (AP) — The man in the police uniform shouted for the campers to come closer. When they did, he killed them.
The gunman who killed at least 80 people at an island youth camp northwest ofused his disguise to lure in his victims, then shot them twice to make sure they were dead, survivors said in the village of Sundvollen, where they were taken after the massacre.
"I saw many dead people," said 15-year old Elise, whose father, Vidar Myhre, didn't want her to disclose her last name. She just feet away from the gunman when he opened fire in the camp on Utoya island.
Elise said she had just come out from an information meeting in a nearby building when she heard gunshots. She saw a police officer and thought she was safe, but then he started shooting.
"He first shot people on the island. Afterward he started shooting people in the water," she said.
Elise said she hid behind the same rock that the killer was standing on. "I could hear his breathing from the top of the rock," she said.
In panic, the girl phoned her parents, whispering to them what was going on.
"They told me not to panic and that everything would be OK." Her parents also told her to get rid of a brightly colored jacket she was wearing to not draw attention to herself.
She said it was impossible to say how many minutes passed while she was waiting for him to stop
APNewsBreak: Oslo bomb was 'Oklahoma City-type'
.OSLO, Norway (AP) — A police official has told The Associated Press that the bomb used in the attack at the Norwegian prime minister's office was "some kind of Oklahoma City-type" device made of fertilizer and diesel fuel.
The official said it remains unclear what kind of panel truckand killed at least seven people when it went off.was used for the bomb, which investigators say was packed into a
The official was speaking on condition of anonymity because the information has not been formally released.
A 4,000 pound (1,815 kilogram) fertilizer-and-fuel-oil bomb detonated in front of a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, killing 168 people.
Neptune, representing "the Unseen" and illusions is in a long lasting septile configuration ( 51 degrees apart ) to Pluto the "Transformer". Septiles are considered FATED, WILD CARDS, strange and unforeseen circumstances will occur and we must be attendant to our own purpose and mission in life to take advantage of them when they happen to discern what exactly is being offered. Neptune is hovering over the 00point of Pisces so, again, as it backtracks into Aquarius ( the "collective" of humanity, 11th sign of the zodiac, society, groups, humanitarians, fraternal organizations, the " Brotherhood). The collective will experience "forks in the road" that will be intuited by those with higher vibratory reasoning abilities- the majority of the "group" will not get the message or will be drawn into deception by the media ( films, advertising false claims, channels and mediums, sleight of hand artists ) and this will include OUR OWN GOVERNMENT- Pluto in CAPRICORN affects those in power ( the Powers that be, leaders, heads of state, of the organization )- Pluto is retrograde until September of 2011 and in retrograde exposes toxic situations that must be brought into the light to purge or release, for all of us personally.
MARS WILL ENTER THE SIGN OF CANCER SHORTLY...reactivating the CARDINAL CROSS of dynamic changes and tension, affecting us "where we live", how we live and who we live with. The storms you experience will be close to home and in the domestic sphere.
