Today September 16th. It doesn't take a weatherman or an astrologer to tell you the the world is experiencing massive upheavel, political tumult and soon socio-economic chaos. Even with the Moon entering the most diplomatic and negotiating sign Libra this morning, the structural underpinings of the system and the matrix are undergoing fundamental change. Yes even with the new tribe represented by Libra entered the scene @ 5:55 AM and more justic-oriented mindset represented by Mercury makes an entrance into Libra @ 4:22 PM
the ferocity of unstoppable change has been unleashed.
The tribe of charmers, diplomats and indecisive judges will have a huge battle in store. Over the next two days we will find out whether Discretion is the better part of Valor or if the world is finally ready to Make Love Not War! Astrological breakdown and deconstruction of major transits: First we have Pluto stationing direct on September 17th @ 10:05 PM, in Capricorn @ 6 degrees 58 minutes With protests worldwide and potent reactions we are seeing the display of aggressive and outright power. An armada of U.S. and British naval power is amassing in the Persian Gulfin the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s covert nuclear weapons program. Consider that the Libra Moon and Mercury are square Pluto, the power player
This is a time when tolerance and patience are sorely need but are pushed aside in favor of drastic actions.
Many old wounds (Chiron in Pisces sextile Pluto) have been reopened under the guise of religion.
and Mars transiting in compulsive Scorpio square Venus in Leo which has resulted in multiple, violent confrontations.
With Pluto direct expect power plays and takeover attempts to occur.
Those who have hid in the shadows are unleashing previous secret forces.
The drama includes sides that are drawn when primal urges are acted upon.
Revelations and deeper secrets will be revealed. This is a time of global cleansing but to what end? From the religious and fundamentalist sects this is an important time : Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets and the first of the High Holy Days begins at Sunset today
Sunset today for Jerusalem, Israel it is 6:44pm LMT and ends at nightfall of September 18th.
A chart set below for the start of Rosh Hasanah has Aries rising with volatile Uranus in the hidden 12th house opposing the Moon-Mercury and the Sun. This is a time when the desire to free oneself from all limitations, prisons is strong and volatile. Mars, the warrior and ruler of this chart is in the 7th house and in Scorpio. The 7th house where all the open enemies are gathered in the straits of Hormuz. The N North Node and Juno are also in the sign of the Scorpion in their home base in the 8th house
Some religious adherents mostly Christian some Hebrews are ascribing this holiday with mystical and revelatory terms saying this is the time when the Rapture Occurs We see with Neptune the planet of spiritual truths and illusions TSQ the Nodes all kinds of beliefs will be shouted forth. Since Mars now transiting in Scorpio and conjunct fixed star Zuben Elgenubi at the claw or pan found in the southern Claw of the Scorpion located constellation of Libra. this is likely to be a time of major social reform and a movement when intense hard work is needed to rebuild the world community. Older astrologers, like Robson have a more dire interpretation: With Mars, Zuben Elgenubi will bring "Bitter quarrels, entailing bloodshed or death" This is a time when Prayers are Necessary! September 16th - As I said the Moon and Mercury entering cardinal Libra also translates the light and power of the upcoming Uranus-Pluto confrontations on September 18th./19th. Today in the short term watch the rapid and unexpected changes this afternoon as the Moon Squares Pluto @ 5:33 PM. This can be a time of forced power struggles when darker emotions like jealousy and territoriality can be set off.
best to work toward cleaning up your side of the street. September 16th: an explosive time occurs when this Libra Moon is Opposite Uranus in volatile and incendiary Aries @ 5:42 PM Expect the Unexpected. Along with some disruptions in the flow of events including fires, explosions and violent attack On the positive side and there is always a positive side this aspect can give rise to new ideas and major discoveries within and without
In other words best to ride these tremendous forces for change to complete ongoing projects
Secondarily: part and parcel to these huge changes on September 18, 2012: Uranus Squares Plutowhich is exact @ 11:55 AM PDT or September 19, 2012 @ 2:55 AM EDT or September 19th. @ 5:55 AM Universal Time. This is the 2nd. of 7 highly potent Cardinal Waxing Squares into March 2015 that will shape the entire planet with a massive awakening and devastating transformation. As I have said these are dangerous times framed by chaotic and revolutionary energies. Energies similar to the the period between 1932 and 1934 but with much more devastating technology yielded by the global elite.
These energies will touch everything including socio-political and economic areas. Per example economically: Bad Omen: Egan-Jones Slashes U.S. Credit Rating in Response to Fed’s QE Geological and technical disasters are not only possible but are happening constantly.
Per example ">at the Louisiana sinkhole where men tampered with the deeper forces of the earth
Or ongoing earthquake swarms and volcanic eruptions
Puerto Rico/Virgin Islands Region or myriad places around the planet where the earth's tectonic plates are shifting big time. Persistent and intense conflicts between different factions of societies and culture could mean major loss of life. 'Nothing would remain’ of Israel if they attack Iran: ‘we would no longer be committed to Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty’ It will take some serious intervention to prevent a major attack. Strikes, protests as in Pakistan, and attempts at collective bargaining reflect some of the manifestations of these transits.
Change will occur with huge losses during this period, when prayers are necessary.
As we saw yesterday September 15th. protests have escalated and spread worldwide and disagreements are beyond religion and involve territory too ! In Southern China Thousands of Chinese targeted Japanese cars and businesses in the southern Chinese cities of Zhuhai and Guangzhou on Saturday as protests spread to other major cities amid growing tension between Asia's two biggest economies over a group of disputed islands. Paramilitary police with shields and batons tried to hold back, and occasionally scuffled with, the crowd of slogan-chanting, flag-waving protesters. Today September 16th: U.S Defence Secretary Leon Panetta states that China-Japan "heading towards war."
