Also much more destructive is that by Longitude Algol will be conjunct both Mars-Venus transiting in the 4th house of national soul. As we know Algol, is a bright star positioned on the severed head that Perseus is carrying...
With Mars: or if Mars be elevated above the luminaries when Algol is angular, the native will be a murderer who will come to an untimely end.

President Zelaya (represented by the transiting Sun in a weak position in the sixth opposing Pluto) who took office in 2006 and is limited by the constitution to a four-year term that ends in early 2010, had angered the army, courts and Congress. Zelya was pushing for an unofficial public vote on Sunday to gauge support for his plan to hold a November referendum on allowing presidential re-election.
At approximately 6:30 a.m. local time, heavily-armed elements of the Honduran military began circulating outside the presidential palace. The president was reportedly arrested, taken to the airforce base in Tegucigalpa and transferred out of the country. This is a rapidly developing situation, with protestors now gathering in Tegucigalpa. Electricity has been cut and local media interrupted.

Update: New Honduran leader sets curfew
The coup occurred when Moon was in a reckless crescent phase in Virgo opposite the rebellious Uranus (exact @ 11:26 AM EDT) when disruptions and takeovers happen suddenly or so it seems.
Interim President Roberto Micheletti has imposed an overnight curfew in Honduras, hours after being sworn in.
The Congress speaker took office after troops ousted elected leader Manuel Zelaya and flew him to Costa Rica.
The removal of Mr Zelaya came amid a power struggle over his plans for constitutional change.
Mr Zelaya urged Hondurans to resist those who had removed him, calling his ouster "a plot by a very voracious elite, an elite which wants only to keep this country isolated, in an extreme level of poverty".
