Yemeni leader dead

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Dec 04, 2017 7:55 am

Former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh, a strongman ruler that was eventually ousted and then fought his way back into power, has been killed.

There aren't a lot of details, but several parties agree (according to NYT) that he is dead and was killed Monday morning (12/4/17). This occurred in the capital, Sana'a. It seems tied into an explosion at his family's compound.

In looking at any charts for Yemen, we need to filter out the ongoing civil war. In this case, first indications apply to that as much as to overthrowing a leader, since the Year chart for Yemen is the Cansolar with Moon-Uranus square Sun-Mars on the angles (and a little Pluto). Sun, 21' from MC, is the most angular planet.

The Caplunar has Neptune closely rising, and some Mercury. plus the universal Moon-Uranus square.

The Arilunar has Moon-Uranus (conjunct 0°02') opposite Mars, and all three of them partile square MC. Moon is 05' off, Uranus 07 off, Mars 29' off. Throw in some Jupiter and Pluto on the fringe (but they are not in aspect).

That same Mars-Uranus opposition, as a transit, is on the Cansolar - that was the triggering aspect for the last 24 hours. The CanQ has Neptune exactly on Asc, and the Venus-Neptune pair within orb. (This is suitable both for murder, and for the shifting alliances that reportedly led up to the event.)

Ventura fire (Thomas Fire)

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Dec 05, 2017 8:25 am

Overnight, a horrendous fire broke out that is threatening Ventura, CA and forcing thousands of evacuations overnight. At last report, it has consumed 31,000 acres, 7,700 homes have been evacuated and 260,000 homes and businesses are without electricity (some reaching across the line into Santa Barbara County).

UPDATE: The Thomas Fire began (or, at least, was first reported) last night, 12/4/17, about 6:30 PM near Santa Paula, CA.

Like most of Southern California, Santa Paula has Neptune and Saturn (and a little Mercury and Venus) dominating the CAPSOLAR. Saturn is also setting (< 2°) in the LIBSOLAR.

However, the Week chart, the ARILUNAR, has an unafflicted Jupiter 09' from square MC, with the Moon-Mars-Uranus opposition background. (Moon-Mars is 14' in mundo for the region.) This has clear elements of a flash-fire, but I think says things are going to be OK - it will be brought under control relatively quickly. Even tomorrow's Canlunar has Jupiter rising, so the "protection" theme is consistent.

DAILY: Transiting Saturn remains within 1° of Capsolar Descendant. Then, yesterday, Uranus squared CapQ MC (52'), with Mars on CapQ WP (11' wide when the fire started). The CanQ contributed also, with MC exactly opposite transiting Saturn (07' when the fire began).

National news a half hour ago said three fires broke out overnight, and they blew up fast. Sounded very Uranus.

Jerusalem

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Dec 06, 2017 12:07 pm

This morning, President Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I'm mostly interested in what this means for the Jerusalem.

One can say that this was intended to be a smashingly good year for Jerusalem, since the Year chart is the Cansolar, with Jupiter 0°02' from Ascendant, Pluto 1°40' off IC, and the two in 1°42' mundane square. This, of course, can also be a sign of geopolitical tensions, but the precision of the Jupiter contact can be expercted to be the lead factor.

Additionally, the Libsolar has Jupiter 1°34' from Ascendant conjunct Mercury 0°04' away in mundo - They were in for some spectacularly good news, and it was going to be this quarter!

The Caplunar focusses more on the uncertainty and anxiety elements, with Neptune stationary, 1°09' from square MC.

Then today's Canluar brought - you guessed it - Jupiter back into play. Several planets join it, though:

Uranus sq. MC 0°47'
Moon on IC 1°37'
Jupiter on Dsc 2°44'
Mars on WP 1°05'
-- Mars-Uranus op. 2°22' in mundo
-- Moon-Uranus sq. 0°07'

Furthermore, transiting Jupiter is today square Capsolar MC (22' as I type).

For the Cansolar, the main player is Pluto, transiting IC.

Aztec High School shooting

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:27 pm

December 7, 2017, about 8 AM, Aztec, NM

As I reported yesterday, there was a shooting yesterday (three people dead, including the shooter) at Aztec High School in Aztec, NM. This was exactly when I said another such shooting incident (standard Venus-Neptune event) would occur on the national scene, though (thankfully) casualties were so few to make me wonder if it's big enough to count a victory. (Two kids dying at another's hands is almost daily fare in the nation's largest cities.)

Mostly there is good news about this: School safety drills ere successful in containing the casualties, which could have been much higher. The charts below start with a background of violent severity, then end up having more "good news" aspects than bad.

Year: Capsolar (+3)
(They almost got through the year, but...)
Mars on MC (0°06')
Saturn on WP (1°19')
Mercury & Pluto more widely foreground
-- Mars-Saturn sq. (2°52')

Bridge (None.)

Quarter: Libsolar (+2)
Neptune on MC (2°36')
Venus sq. Asc (0°42')
Moon sq, Asc (1°55')
-- Moon-Venus conj. (1°13')
Saturn is widely foreground

Month: Caplunar
(Looks quite good, but technically dormant.)
Moon-Uranus sq. (0°14')

Week: Canlunar {-1}
(Ony -1 instead of -2 because of the among of good news.)
Venus on EP (0°17')

Day: Capsolar Quotidian (0)
p Moon op. p Neptune (0°56')
p MC sq. t Jupiter (0°58'), op. t Moon (0°18')

Day: Cansolar Quotidian & Transits (Dormant.)

Times Square explosion

Post by Jim Eshelman » Mon Dec 11, 2017 6:21 am

An explosion (one report says it was a pipe bomb) went off in a subway terminal near Times Square just before 7:30 AM this morning (12/11/17). Apparently there were no deaths, and the only injury was the perp. (This timing would have placed the event a few minutes after sunrise, exactly at Mercury's rising, with Saturn still several degrees from Asc.)

New York's Caplunar has Jupiter exactly rising and Venus on IC. If it contributed to this event, it was in the sense of "no real damage, no casualties." The Arilunar flows through and is tells the tale well enough with a close Mercury-Saturn conjunction on EP (the main "casualty" was all of the trains skipping Times Square and Port Authority stops this morning and, surely, a bit of general chaos in the city's transportation system). Sun rises exactly, squared by Neptune.

And, as we expect, the Capsolar Quotidian tells the direct tale: With MC 26°02' Aquariuis at 7:30 AM, it touches the Mars-Saturn square that has been lying in wait in the Capsolar all year. In case we didn't know it was transportation-related, Mercury joions the mix for a little more transportation screw-up:L

25°45' Aqu - p Mars [s Mars 25°04']
26°02' Aqu - p MC
27°27' Tau - p EP

28°02' Sco - p Saturn [s Saturn 27°56']
28°22' Sco - t Mercury

Pluto continues to transit NYC's Cansolar Dsc, which seems a bigger deal than this event (0°31' this morning). The CanQ (not necessary, but interesting) has solar Mercury at MC and transiting Jupiter rising ("a transportation thing, and no serious harm done").

FCC approves net neutrality repeal

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Dec 14, 2017 10:45 am

A short while ago, the FCC, as expected, approved repeal of net neutrality protections.

I suspect this is part of the multiple Mercury-Saturn expressions this month. The DC CapQ for today has the Capsolar's Mars-Saturn square on angles.

Bad words list given to CDC

Post by Jupiter Sets at Dawn » Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:28 am

Thursday the 14th, time unknown, Atlanta, a 90 minute meeting in which the CDC was told by Alison Kelly, a senior leader in the agency’s Office of Financial Services that budget proposals and requests with the following seven words would be returned to the CDC.
vulnerable
entitlement
diversity
transgender
fetus
evidence-based
science-based

This feels like Mercury-Saturn to me with a Mercury-Mars tinge.

Grrrr. They're looking for some way to pay for those tax cuts.

It's going to be a tough year next year.

Thursday was the day the Washington CapQ had MC 26° Aquarius and EP 28° Taurus, exactly hitting the Capsolar's Mars-Saturn square. This occurred under a Liblunar with Mars most angular, on IC. Conclusion: This is war!

In Atlanta, the Liblunar is dormant, so the Canlunar flows through. JSAD, you were exactly right: The Canlunar, besides a rising Sun squared by Neptune, has:
3°12' Sag EP
3°24' Sag Mercury
3°25' Sag Saturn

Mercury conjunct Saturn is 0°01' wide!

On Thursday, Atlanta's CapQ had MC 18° Aquarius, conjunct Capsolar Venus (part of a Venus-Neptune conjunction) and Asc 6°Gemini opposite Capsolar Mercury. Transiting Saturn at 4° Sagittarius was not in orb of transiting the Mercury, but was still in orb of the angle. I'm guessing they got the news a day or two earlier (and had to prepare for the meeting) - Transiting Saturn would have been right on Dsc, transiting Neptune on MC. (CDC is a big deal in Atlanta!)
