First let me express sincere condolences to the good people of North Korea who are in mourning for the loss on December 17, 2011 of Kim Jong Il, their 'Dear Leader'.
He was a complex man and the people's sense of loss must be overwhelming even for those whose state-imposed displays of bereavement are acts of self-preservation and habit more than of deep grief for one difficult man. The North Korean people's already perilous conditions and the crossroads which the passing of the Communist-monarchical mantle presents them brings tremendous collective anxieties; plus, the suddenness of such a tragic event adds much intensity to their emotional shock as The Masses face life without the familiar father figure they've come to know (only too well, as some might say.)
2011 North Korea: a People Eclipsed by a 'Peculiar Turn of Events'
A momentous event was promised for the North Korean people by the 'peculiar turn of events' November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 2Sag37 which 'eclipsed' North Korea's 1st house natal Moon 2Sag17 (the people, the populace; ASC 24Sco58; transit Uranus now squares natal Uranus 00Can15 in 8th H of Death and Transformation--emotional shock) in the country's natal horoscope set for September 9, 1948 12:00 pm P'yongyang, NK.
(Source: US Dept of State; Nicholas Campion's Book of World Horoscopes gives one day later which changes little but the Moon's position so I'm taking the November 2011 Solar Eclipse 'hit' to the 2Sag17 Moon position of Sept 9 as a reasonable confirmation that 'September 9, 1948' is the correct date for the establishment of North Korea.)
And yes, the 'peculiar turn of events' flavor of the Nov 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse does make me wonder for one brief moment if a human hand helped speed Kim Jong Il on to his ultimate destination far beyond his train's final station. Why, actors pretend to assassinate by 'heart attack' in movies and on TV all the time, the little dickenses. Actually, the North Korean leader had been recuperating well from his stroke in 2008, I heard somewhere--until last Saturday morning when his health took a peculiar turn for the worst.
May 2012: Tears and Fears
Warily I should mention that the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse @ 00Gem21 ('unsettling times') also 'eclipses' the Moon of North Korea giving us all 'something to cry about' due to the eclipse conjoining difficult star Alcyone, one of the Weeping Sisters. Key themes for Alcyone's potential influence: inner vision, a search for knowledge, exile, suffering, ruthlessness, judgmental anger.
Though the horoscope for the May 2012 eclipse is not yet published by this astrologer, you may be able to locate it online with little effort, if it's posted. An eclipse in the sign of Gemini indicates that affected issues will relate to mercurial things such as: communications, news, travel, trade, commerce, negotiations, contracts, treaties, and young people.
Now the political facets of this unexpected change-of-leadership as its import and the fears associated with it boomerang around the globe are much too varied for one limited post though I do admit to a hope Kim Jong Un will be more open to considering varied perspectives rather than clinging to provincial, blinders-on attitudes of the past. (We can all resemble that remark, personally and politically!)
Now I'll hush and turn you over to the very focused if sometimes polarizing Alex Jones and his guests to express themselves on North Korea and other matters.
