Two Ceasefires

Linked from Kyle's Phyles, two ceasefires in the news this morning, one in Yemen and the other in Syria.  Such events, in my research, are always associated with what I call "Apollonian" Pallas-related transits.  Accordingly, we just had an exact transiting trine in the sky between Mercury (18 Libra) and Pallas (18 Aquarius) in the past day.

World War Three?


In early September, the normally belligerent US government was making uncharacteristic moves to work with Russia in Syria.  A week later, the US military "accidentally" violated the resulting cease-fire and then was soon back to its old tricks.  US politicians have been openly calling for acts of war against Russia, and blaming Putin for "hacks" with little evidence (for all we know, the "hacks" may have been internal leaks).  Russia has been running massive civilian evacuation drills.  The US mainstream media has been helping to beat the war drums while remaining silent on the risk that our overlords will destroy us all. 

Readers of this blog know that the astrological precursor for recklessly evil behavior and ethical crises is the Pluto-to-Pallas transit.  Last month's Pluto station hit the US (Sibley) and Russia horoscopes pretty hard.  I would argue that the current madness is fallout from this event and the further we get from the day of the station the more likely we will evade the nuclear war that US Democrats are furiously trying to initiate.  And yes, based on the evidence, I really do believe our politicians really are insane enough to do it. 

Onto the Pluto station charts: 

Transiting stationary Pluto novile US Pallas, sextile progressed Pallas, square Saturn (ruler of Pallas)

Transiting stationary Pluto novile Russia Pallas, semi-sextile progressed Pallas, trine Jupiter (ruler of Pallas). 

I still believe that Barack Obama is a psychopath, but I'm grateful it's him and his somewhat even keel at the nuclear button rather than the reportedly temper-tantrum-prone Hillary Clinton

Kabul Shrine Massacre

From Reuters via Kyle's Phyles"At least 14 people were killed on Tuesday when a gunman in a police uniform opened fire on worshippers gathered at a shrine in the Afghan capital of Kabul for a Shi'ite holy day, officials said."

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas ruled by Saturn which is parallel Pluto.
2.  Venus trine South Node and ruled by Mars which is sextile Neptune.
3.  Venus ruled by Pluto.
4.  Moon ruled by Saturn which is parallel Pluto.
5.  Sun square Pluto.

A weaker astrological configuration and lower body count from the bombing in Yemen this past weekend.

Yemen Funeral Bombing

Go to this URL under "10/9/16" for reports on a bombing by the US-backed Saudis on a funeral, killing hundreds.  There are major world news events which even Drudge and Infowars won't report.  For these events, there's Kyle's Fyles, which from what I can tell combs international news feeds on a daily basis and links to reports that most media won't. 

event time unknown -- time based on Twitter postings

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas ruled by Saturn which is parallel Pluto.
2.  Venus trine South Node.
3.  Venus sextile and ruled by Pluto.
4.  Moon conjunct Pluto.
5.  Sun square Pluto.

US Surrenders Internet

The US government has relinquished control of the domain-parsing "switchboard" of the Internet.  Control will pass to an international body which will likely include countries with no history of respect for freedom of speech.  This has been generally ignored in the media despite the possibility that it may eventually mean the end of free speech on the Internet.  Transits for this event against the charts for the US and for the Internet (data from James Kelleher) are interesting in this regard.

Transiting South Node conjunct US progressed Sun and Pallas in Third House:  a loss of life force and intelligence in the realm of communications.

Transiting retrograde Pallas conjunct progressed Mercury and solar arc Mars in Aquarius in the Third House:   intelligence/ethics plus communication plus action plus technology...

Transiting Neptune quincunx US Neptune in Virgo in the Ninth:  dissolving a mechanism for publishing and visual media?

Transiting Pluto square US Saturn in Libra the Tenth:  the destruction of socially-oriented structure/authority. 

Transiting Pluto square Internet Venus in Libra in the Third: destruction/change of communication-related value. 

Transiting Jupiter conjunct Internet Uranus in Libra:  big social/technological disruption.

Swiss Parliament Votes to Ban Burka


This is a weird one, in that it brings up the age-old question of whether two wrongs can make a right.  On one hand, it's easy to argue that banning an article of clothing (particularly one that may be mandated by a religion) is a violation of citizen's rights.  On the other hand, it can be convincingly argued that the affected religion is one that can not co-exist with the values of its host society.  The ostensible rationale for a burka ban would be to stop the spread of an ideology that forcefully violates the freedom of others... through the enforcement of a freedom-violating ideological mandate.

The astrology against Switzerland's national chart for the day of the vote is as fascinating and unsettling as the fact of the vote itself. 

Transiting Jupiter/Sun conjunct Switzerland Venus in Libra:  femininity made public.

Transiting Pallas trine Switzerland Pallas and quincunx Switzerland Sun and North Node, progressed Pallas square Switzerland Mercury: very significant libertarian vectors at play. 

Transiting Pluto square Switzerland Pallas:  one authoritarian vector.  This is significant, but it's also worth noting that the libertarian factors are much more numerous and stronger.  Is the universe telling us that this action will fundamentally result in more freedom/peace/non-aggression than the reverse?  If so, do two "wrongs" indeed make a "right"?

Transiting Neptune and progressed Sun conjunct Switzerland Moon in Pisces in the Fourth:  highlight on the intersection between spirituality, culture, femininity, and perhaps race. 

Transiting Chiron conjunct Switzerland Saturn in the Fourth:  injury plus authority plus culture. 

Switzerland Uranus return in the Fifth House:  an impending shift in the nation's identity expression? 

Switzerland will (along with Hungary and others) be a place to observe and compare with the rest of Europe as Islam grows in influence on the once-Christian continent.

Terror: Burlington WA

Five fatally shot in a shopping mall North of Seattle.

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas ruled by Saturn which is parallel Pluto.
2.  Venus ruler Mars quintile Neptune.
3.  Venus ruled by Pluto.
4.  Moon opposite Pluto.
5.  Sun "squine" Pluto.

Transiting Pluto at 14 Capricorn is trine Pallas on the Burlington WA incorporation chart at 17 Taurus.  This is not an accident.  Transiting Pluto will almost definitely be in aspect to the natal and/or progressed Pallas on the killer's chart.

Yes, the Bloodbath Formula and the Pluto-to-Pallas transits for the location and perpetrator of mass-murder events appear to apply in virtually all cases of such events in which precise data for the event is available.  (Addendum 9/28/16 :  reader "David" has kindly informed me that birth data for the alleged perpetrator is here http://q13fox.com/2016/09/24/cascade-mall-shooting-person-of-interest-in-custody/ and that his Pallas is indeed receiving a transiting Pluto aspect)

There are three things that America can do to reduce the incidence of mass violence:
1.  Allow potential victims to be legally armed and shoot back at attackers.
2.  Allow the victims of mass violence to sue drug companies for damage inflicted by persons on violence-inducing psychiatric medication.
3.  Communities and law-enforcement should adopt a zero-tolerance policy for persons openly calling for murder.  The imam in Florida who called for the murder of gays prior to the Orlando massacre, and numerous persons associated with Black Lives Matter should be persona non grata in all American communities.  The organizations with which these persons are affiliated should be similarly unwelcome unless they explicitly denounce their violent radical elements.
