It's been pointed out that for Mr. Ahmadinejad to have won in Iran by such a wide margin, voters in Mr. Mousavi's heartland would have had to switch sides, apparently in honor of the gloriousness of Mr. Ahmadinejad's ruling style.
Actually, the ruler of Iran isn't the president, is it? They're just in cahoots.
And as I pointed out to our own win-at-all-costs duo, Bush and Cheney, in 2000 (and again in 2004), cheating isn't winning. It's stealing.
So...do thieves make good leaders since they have no mandate from the people? Nah. Look at the condition of the world since these jokers have held sway.
Taking a peek at Iran's natal chart of *April 1, 1979, 3:00 pm IRDT, Tehran, we see that Saturn 15Vir31 has been playing with natal North Node (NN), a combination indicating public contact (NN) with authority figures and control/restrictions (Saturn); rebellious Uranus 26Pisc29 has been in natal 8th house for some time and is now affecting Iran's natal Mercury/Mars conjunction (Mars 25Pisc37, Mercury 27:16.)
Thus Uranus to natal Mars indicates danger in the environment, rash actions which bring unexpected responses, and combativeness; physical actions are highly charged and unpredictable; new directions are desired.
Uranus to natal Mercury shows an urge to seek freedom for development of new ideas and opinions; minds are more open to new, original ideas; senses are keener but nerves more frazzled; restlessness keeps people on the move and travels are subject to disruption or mishaps.
With transiting Uranus now between natal Mars and Mercury we have a midpoint picture to consider...
Mercury/Mars = Uranus: tremendous excitability; thinking and planning on the run; losing self-control; rash actions; acting with lightening speed; frenzy; making a hasty decision during emotional upset; an exciting surprise; danger of a catastrophe.
With Iran's natal Saturn at 8Vir18 (1st house, Placidus, 2nd cusp = 10Vir19; ASC = 17Leo17; Mc = 10Tau33 with Secondary Progressed Sun now 10Tau39), we know that authority and control are being reaffirmed now with this presidential election. That the world is watching is confirmed by Sec Sun at natal Midheaven, the most public point in any chart.
Transiting Mars 8Tau50 (with Venus in tow 6Tau17) is conjunct natal Chiron 7Tau35, indicating a 'sacred warrior' or a 'sacred war' being waged on the world stage.
This Mars to Chiron transit suggests their active nuclear program but doesn't discount a connection with 2009's unclearly-decided presidential election in Iran, a country whose people I think very highly of, and I sincerely hope this election stand-off is settled on their behalf with a minimum of problems for the people.
*Iran's natal data from Celeste Teal's Eclipses and from historical record; Iran's natal 12th house Jupiter 29Can04 will be affected directly by the Solar Eclipse of July 22, 2009 at '29Can' in the 11 South Series which Brady's Predictive Astrology gives as: the need for sudden reforms; old ideas or methods fail and new systems are required to deal with events brought by the eclipse; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed.
Are the massive protests in Tehran this weekend an early triggering of this tragic eclipse's influence?
An eclipse in this Series last occurred on July 11, 1991 '19Can' a violent degree, and of course any 29th degree is considered a critical or crisis degree.
With natal Mercury at '19Can', the 1991 eclipse heralded the murder of writer Danny Casolaro who was in process of working on a book about 'the octopus'...the world crime syndicate now embedded in every institution - politics, law, education, business, religion - which points to New World Order plans now so neatly in place. Bush Sr was US president, and ownership of PROMIS software and its progeny (to track you and your monetary transactions) was in dispute, as Casolaro's book would have revealed.
But Casolaro's assassination silenced all that (his papers/notes/research at the crime scene 'disappeared' of course) - and the weekend of his mysterious demise in a Martinsburg, WVA motel saw a New Moon...at 17Leo00. I mention his case because we can't rule out such goings-on for the July 22, 2009 Solar Eclipse season - whether we want to or not. #
