Special Astrological Weather Statement for Sunday Aug 11 2013
The United States and Her allies have issued travel advisories for the mideast and have closed many of their embassies in the Muslim controlled nations. I took this as a very important moment that needed an astrologer’s viewpoint
Well , Not EXACTLY like this, BUT we need to be extra cautious the next several days as Fiery MARS starts his turn at T-Squaring Retrograde Uranus in Aries ( nasty surprises / accidents ) and butting heads with Pluto (lord of the Underworld) in Capricorn . this in and of itself wasn’t bad enough, Saturn in Scorpio is in a “Mutual Reception” with Pluto in capricorn. In a Mutual reception, think of it as a bit of a hidden teaming up of the planets and signs involved. Like a treaty or an alliance.
This past weekend has been a very ..interesting one.. as in the Chinese curse ” May you live in interesting times” . here in the Us we have had 2 major transportation incidents, the Asiana Flight 214 accident and the Lac-Mégantic Derailment ( image above) , and the aircrash in Soldotna ,Alaska that killed ten.
Whenever we have such catastrophic events, we astrologers go onto “High Alert” looking for the astrological indicators, such as the actions of retrograde planets, of ‘ill aspects’ and placements at the time and place of the incidents, in the hopes we will see these tragedies in advance ( not that the powers that be will heed us any mind).
