Here is an “outstanding” Venus-Mars “incident” 1962 Cansolar preceding the Oct 16 1962 Cuban Missile Crises for the USA. Mundo Mars is rising 2,22 conjunct ASC, with a partile Venus-Mars 90. Also very important to note progressed Cansolar Moon was exact 180 Cansolar Sun when the USA/Cuban Missile C...
