Chaos/Revolution with Solstice in Iran Amid Fixed Squares and Twitter
Part One Wag the Dog?
Since the elections on June 12th Iran has been in a chaotic, hyper boiling point mixed with hystera and panic. Since the presidential elections, when voters choosing among hard-line incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, main reformist candidate Mir Hossein Mousavi and two others.
So Ahmadinejad initially won? but in typical surprise Uranian fashion
S(reflecting rulership and mutual reception ala Neptune/Jupiter in democratic Aquarius receptive to Uranus in driving the masses in idealistic Pisces) - At a press conference around midnight, Mousavi declared himself "definitely the winner" ?
Before I go on, let me note as an Astrologer, anytime Neptune is heavily involved with
world and national events, deception, illusion and potential trickery is afoot. Neptune/Jupiter the rulers of Pisces will always reflect both an ideololgical and religious element mired in confusing elements including grand ayatollah Montazeri’s influence.
"A number of commentators have expressed their idealistic belief in the purity of Mousavi, Montazeri, and the westernized youth of Terhan. The CIA destabilization plan, announced two years ago (see below) has somehow not contaminated unfolding events."
(Wag the Dog or should I say the tail is wagging the Dog?)
Some are asking: Are the Iranian Protests Another US Orchestrated “Color Revolution?”
Looking back to ABC's Brian Ross's article on May 22nd, 2007:
Bush Authorizes New Covert Action Against Iran
It has been around 30 years (Saturn Cycle) since the last Iranian revolution in 1979
when Saturn was in Virgo Retrograde as was the North Node all opposed to a weighted Pisces Stellium (see Chart Below)
Back in 1979 all the outer planets were retrograde with and with our current Uranus now in Pisces stationing retrograde on July 1st 2009 @ 26 degrees 37 minutes we could see another revolution as Uranus starts to again to cover the degrees of Mars (25 Pisces 37) and Vesta (23 Pisces 10) over the next four months.
The Chart Set for Mousavi's declaration: June 13th, 2009 @ 12:05 AM has 24 degrees Aquarius rising with Chiron-Neptune-Jupiter all near the ascendant and stationing retrograde - a call for protest and revolution. Of course in typical CIA wag the dog fashion, with lots of Neptunian confusion to say the least, Mousavi who is supported by growing youth-oriented movement using internet video and twitter to communicate subsequent days of horror and repression. Yes Mousavi based is victory on "all indications from all over Iran." He accused the Islamic ruling establishment of "manipulating the people's vote" to keep Ahmadinejad in power and suggested the reformist camp would stand up to challenge the results. Whoa
BiWheel Chart with the Iranian Revolution Foundation Chart (April 1st 1979) in the center
and Summer Solstice on the Outside Wheel - More in Part Two
Writing this on June 20th, just a few hours from the advent of the Summer Solstice on the Pacific Coast @ 10:46 PM, I have to step back as the violence escalates in Iran and the media mavens seem to salivate now. Yeah I got to get clearer view especially with a Mars-Venus conjunction in feminine earthy Taurus applying to some major squares to the Aquarian Triple Conjunction starting on July 1st with Venus first and forging ahead to July 6th when Mars makes an exact Square to Neptune (7:43 AM) then to Jupiter (1:49 PM).
Before we examine the chart below (BiWheel with Iran Revolution 1979 and Summer Solstice set for June 21st in Tehran (10:46 AM IRDT - 4:30 ) we will examine some of the transits since Neptune stationed retrograde on May 28/29th right after the historical Triple Aquarian Conjunction May 27th (bringing the principle of dissolution (Neptune) together with Expansion/Belief systems(Jupiter) and the Wounded Healer/Shamanic Teacher (Chiron)
Timeline: Neptune Transits since first conjunction May 27th.
(Note the second conjunction is July 10th @ 2:08 AM PDT with all planets retro. )<
May 29th, Neptune stations retrograde.
This is a time when our sensitivity and feelings tend to be more "acute" and sometimes able to picking up and perceiving the illusive. Adding a perceived psychic sensitivity.
For some it is easier to ascertain information about issues that have eluded us while Neptune was direct and with use of the Internet and social media expanded and accelerated communications - even overload will be the order of the day.
Events and energies have been happening fast with Neptune stationing retrograde (May 28/29th) near Jupiter in the collective sign Aquarius as denial takes over on a mass level for many. For others Neptune's station near Jupiter offers new spiritual portals as sensitvity heightens.
May 30th Mercury moved direct in Taurus
to help ground these energies to set up another square to Neptune June 9th.
A sense of unreality and confusion can dominate as can an irrational enthusiasm along with hysteria
May 31st. - Mars made a significant transit into fixed earthy Taurus @ 2:18 PM
Hot, angry Mars was setting up a TSQ to the Nodes for more historic events. as GAIA wakes up!
(Mars and Venus will be together in the feminine sign Taurus on June 21st right after the advent of the Summer Solstice )
June 6th: Now that Venus as entered a fixed sign and a highly dignified one at that Taurus, the sensitivity of Neptune is even stronger.
June 9th: Mercury exactly Squares Neptune @ 2:54 PM PDT
this was a day when our imaginations play tricks on us. Fantasy, illusion and escapism
are the watch word while responsibilities might be shunned.
We will still find that ongoing events creating almost a manic type of hysteria especially since it sets up a TSQ to the applying Mercury square Neptune (
From a more meditative, spiritual side we are watching Sun applying to a Trine with Neptune (exact June 17th)
this aspect is about visionary experiences that offer a window into the future.
the Aquarian Moon will begin translate the light from the upcoming Venus-Mars difficult squares to Neptune today.
(Iran elections hitting the news with Timezones)
Even though Moon won't contact Neptune till June 13th, lots of hysterical and sensational announcements will be coming out today.
(Mousavi Declares Victory June 13th)
Jupiter moved retrograde (@ 12:51 AM PDT) putting emphasis on political beliefs, also adding to a worldwide sense of mis-perception and denial which will continue into July.
June 15th. Pisces Moon Squares Gemini Sun (@ 3:51 PM) to start last qtr. moon phase where Neptunian dream like energies are most intense. (SHTF in Iran)
Hundreds of thousands of protesters march in Tehran, and militia gunmen fire on a crowd trying to storm their compound. State media later report seven people were killed in clashes during the day. Smaller protests are reported in several other cities. President Barack Obama takes cautious line in his first comments on the crisis, saying he is "deeply troubled" by the violence but not assessing election's validity.
June 17th: Sun Trines Neptune
This usually benefic trine was offering a glimpse into the spiritual side of this phase but murky Neptune is also ruling Uranus which is
square Sun today demonstrating some of the shockwaves and collisions we are facing before humanity can evolve.
Large protests continue in Tehran. Human rights organizations say many prominent activists and politicians have been arrested. State-run TV blames United States for "intolerable interference."
Stubborn Fixed Taurus Moon begins (@ 7:20 AM PDT) united and immutable forces are ready to clash and bump heads ala Taurus as Moon meets Pluto to pick up speed and power.
Thousands of black-clad pro-Mousavi demonstrators mourn those killed in clashes. Cellular phone service in the capital goes down as gathering begins. Guardian Council calls on Mousavi and the two other opponents of Ahmadinejad in the race to a meeting Saturday to discuss their complaints
a Black Friday for those in Iran and for others a portal opening with Moon meeting both Venus and Mars for a triple conjunction which may have created a passionate response to Ayatollah Khomeini's speach with the difficult Taurus (house of religious leaders) square Aquarius triplets ( a collective group set on supposed democratic path)
Khamenei addresses country during Friday prayers at Tehran University. Calling the election a victory, he sides with Ahmadinejad and says the vote was not rigged. He also warns protesters of a crackdown if opposition demonstrations continue.
These past and continuing aspects filled with emotion and confusion are even more star crossed when we examine some of Khamenei's own reference to deception in elections
Transcript: Ayatollah Khamanei’s Speech at Prayers (19 June)
