Timeline of the bin Laden assassination: Pluto Rising

Here's NPR's timeline of the May 1st raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan (his hidey-hole - considerably ritzier than Saddam Hussein's had been.)

Though I've been studying horoscopes of the event I've held back from posting about it and have since found it better to use the chart provided by Bernadette Brady with Moon 24Ari08 and 8Cap39 rising with saboteur and assassin Pluto 7Cap22 Rx, along with the brittle energy of the sometimes dangerous Saturn/Uranus midpoint; Sun is @ 11Tau01 (SolarFire software gives me 11:02.)

To create an event chart that tallies with Ms. Brady's version, I must use:

May 1, 2011 6:14:54 pm GMT Abbottabad, Pakistan.

It is an Hour of the fluctuating Moon, a symbol of the Middle East when in Crescent phase, and 2 days prior to the New Moon 12Tau30 of May 3rd ('13Tau' = "A Man Handling Baggage." Now I don't intend to be ghoulish but a body bag slipped into the Arabian Sea does come to mind.)

Therefore, at the WHAT? Point of the horoscope (ASC) there are two midpoint pictures formed:

Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: acts of violence or brutality (now we have a specific world event that is well-described by this ongoing midpoint picture and T-Square pointing to Pluto the Assassin); concealing changes to activities (by keeping the mission mum from Pakistani officials); harm through force majeure; a desire to overcome a difficult situation through extraordinary effort (US Navy Seals.)

Saturn/Uranus = ASC: being placed in difficult circumstances; the fate of standing alone in the world; suffering hardship caused by others; shared emotional suffering; mourning and bereavement.

The May 1, 2011 assassination falls within the 13 North Solar Eclipse Series which manifested on January 4, 2011 @ 13Cap38/39 and which heralded a potential for a 'central event having wide-range impact' for the US government (Capricorn, sign of government) with 13Cap38 opposing US natal Sun (leadership.)

Since there are many versions of natal horoscopes for Osama bin Laden due to conflicting dates of birth, I've never published a chart for him because Lunar Calendar births are not always easy to rectify into a Solar Calendar such as we use in Western Astrology, even when a correct birth date is known. And I may decide to never publish bin Laden's assassination chart either.

My hope is that President Obama will stand by his decision today not to release photos of the man whose legend can still launch a thousand suicide bombers and I agree heartily with those who say that releasing the photos would only act as a recruiting tool without providing doubters evidence that would sway them if they're determined to remain unswayed (or pretending they doubt or critique for political reasons - the 2012 election cometh. Have you heard it yet? Bush couldn't. Obama not only can, he did.)

One more astro-note: at Barack Obama's natal Midheaven during this event, I noticed an interesting asteroid with an archetype which may indeed apply to our nation's 10-year quixotic search for Osama bin Laden:

Sisyphus, the Determined.

Astrology Day Blogathon March 19 - 21, 2010 and the Solar Eclipse of July 11, 2010

Here I sit wondering if you've dropped in yet to check out the 1st Annual International Astrology Day Blogathon March 19 - 21, 2010.

The Blogathon's Schedule of Articles leads with strong-arm Pluto taking over Friday March 19, Saturn managing his namesake day Saturday ( March 20) perfectly well and efficiently, and Uranus erking jerkily up to meet the Aries Point of Prominence, a World Point of Manifestation which can be a breakthrough position indicating most often a 'scientific breakthrough' of some kind which benefits or hinders large numbers of people, and now appearing just in time to light up Spring Equinox 2010.

Why, it's been about 84 years since revolutionary rebel Uranus, The Awakener and The Witness, streaked through this Mars-ruled area of the zodiac! The quirky, erratic Sky God of the planets can be associated with natural disasters, it must be added.

And after all, 2010 is a year of a Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus thus generously expanding the principles involved in the picture: transit Uranus = AP = scientific breakthrough/s of merit and/or significance. Jupiter/Uranus has a definite light-bulb-over-head vibe for brilliant insights to suddenly stun us with their ingeniousness. Air or space travel innovations may be on the menu and scientists' work on energy sources may be on the verge of a big publicity splash.

Now I know you'll keep in mind that July 11, 2010 brings along a Solar Eclipse conjunct a difficult degree in the zodiac (Tropical) @ 19 - 20 Cancer, a critical range traditionally; plus, Castor's reputation as a troublemaker precedes him.

Here's what Anthony Louis gives for Castor in his Horary Astrology Plain and Simple: 'sudden fame or loss; murder; mental illness; crippling of limbs'.

Brady adds 'an intellectual writer' and both stars of The Twins can be inspirational muses for writers and other artistic, creative enterprises.

Pluto's degree of Discovery is around 19 - 20 Cancer as well and you know what the atomic Mr. Underworld signifies - obsessive control of all factors and schedules involved with his endeavors. Pluto keeps himself aloof and is quite neurotically anti-societal, you know, if not a gangster.

Well, generally I'd say our globe is in line for a unifying event of some kind; plus, it feels to me as if there may be multiple events of note during 2010 into 2011.

These are the reasons I want you to have the Astrology Day Blogathon 2010's link for How-To-Deal articles and insights to encourage you to pause and think a while along new tracks while appreciating for a moment another person's perspective. For as the Tarot says, if you're fortunate enough to be able to pause and consider your options, do so.

Plus, eclipses in Cancer spotlight domestic issues such as land, real estate, homes, homeland, questions of and need for security, grains/other food crops, food supply and its transport concerns, food additives, food and poultry inspection, and nurturing sources including food banks and other charities.

Cancer has its primordial links with oceans, crustaceans, and with shrewd business practices and creative talents, too.

Unfortunately, Fixed Star Castor is usually a problem when and wherever it is activated or contacted. From our earthly vantage point upon our little blue sphere a contact with Castor seems to ramp up its expression on an archetypal level. It's a bit like in the film The Mummy - an ancient archetype comes to 'life' either within one's psyche, in muliple psyches, and perhaps upon the physical plane if all factors coincide and the will is there.

In mythology, Castor is brother to Pollux, of course, the dark-light Twin Stars of Gemini, and you can toss your mouse about 3 inches and find web-based info on them all over the interweb.

Then why not sashay yourself over to an original researcher on the subject of Fixed Stars and parans, Australian astrologer Bernadette Brady? You can hardly do better! Especially if Fixed Stars warm the very cockles of your astrologer's heart.

So, Brady's Predictive Astrology gives the July 11, 2010 Solar Eclipse as being in the 12 South Series and I shall remind you that 12S is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series during which America was founded, occurring prior to July 4, 1776. Don't you find it a helpful trait when using eclipses in your charts that a precise birth time isn't necessary with Fixed Star and paran work (such as that of Bernadette Brady) for one looks at the entire 24 hours of the day - your day, the day or night of your birth, you cute little dickens, you.

With star parans, a horoscope is divided into quarters so that a lifetime is described by quarterly markers for life's chronological phases, and the Fixed Star/s during our day of birth, if any, are linked to a particular planet (or planets) as they arose, culminated, set, and crossed the midnight point at the Base or Foundation Point of the chart, aka The Drain.

Thereby we are informed of the time period of our lives in which certain archetypes and myths (some of them inherited family myths) 'play out' and flavor our motivations and actions (either consciously or most often, unconsciously) and spark (Uranus!) and inform us so we may express their starry mythological energies (stories) in more positive ways than was done heretofore by our ancestors.

This living out archetypal energies, or as a rep for the transpersonal realm, is what I think of as the foundation of the 'past life' theories which abound in the world because this Saturnian astrologer 'sees' heredity in charts - cells and DNA, and not Marie Antoinette or her serving maid. (Addiction to cake is not conclusive evidence of 'past life' or incarnation. Nope.)

July 11, 2010 @ 3:40:17 pm edt Washington DC; ASC 16 Scorpio 05; MC 25 Leo 22 (it and its polar opposite 25 AQ 22, are degrees of Astrology, btw, as are the rest of Leo/AQ's degrees up to 30 Leo); eclipse perfects in the 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Big Business, Corporations, etc, in DC.)

12S: there are influences of 'principles and justified actions' to this Series with possible feelings of melancholy; yet there will be successful outcomes to long-term worries or illness; things may at first seem worse, then clear. (As I've wondered aloud here before: will a health insurance bill of some description and/or one for financial reform actually pass in the US Congress, a body that for decades has preferred to send US treasures overseas?)

Well, here is a brief list of 12S manifestations in the last century and looking forward:

1902, 1919, 1938, 1956, 1974, 1992, and July 11, 2010; the next manifestation will be in 2028.

Well, 12S is the PE of not just America, but of President Harry Truman, the Statue of Liberty (our big honkin' Illuminati monument to Venus Columba, the Dove), and it'a also the Series in which fell Richard Nixon's resignation (good riddance.)

Solar and Lunar Eclipses of 2009

Boondoggle for trillions and front for spy satellites though it may be, NASA can be useful to society such as providing details on 2009's Eclipses - like their paths of totality and visibility.

History of 2009's Eclipses and future dates are also given.

Here's the Solar-Lunar Eclipse list of occurrence from Brady's Predictive Astrology:

1. Solar 6AQ30: Jan 26, 11 North: people suddenly change groups with which they are mixing, through travel or ideas; the separation produces positive benefits;

2. Lunar 21Leo: Feb 9;

3. Lunar 15Cap: July 7 (NASA says it's so minor it's invisible);

4. Solar 29Can: July 22, 11 South: old methods and ideas fail and new systems are required to deal with events; sudden reforms are
necessary and any blocks could be violently or tragically removed.

5. Lunar 14AQ: Aug 6;

6. Lunar 10Can: Dec 31, 2009.

Ursid meteors from Ursa Minor

Space Weather News for Dec. 20, 2007

URSID METEORS: Earth is heading for a stream of comet dust that could produce a pleasing outburst of "shooting stars" this weekend. Forecasters say dozens of meteors per hour could emerge from a spot in the sky near the North Star (Polaris) when Earth encounters the dust on Saturday evening, Dec 22. These meteors are called "Ursids" after Ursa Minor, the constellation where the North Star is located.

If forecasting models are correct, the shower's peak will occur between 2100 and 2200UT (4-5 pm EST) with meteors visible as much as four hours before and after that time.

The source of the dust is Comet 8P/Tuttle, which is traveling through the inner solar system this month and next. The comet itself can be seen through binoculars not far from the radiant of the shower. This gives sky watchers a rare opportunity to see a comet and its meteors in the same observing session.

Ursid meteors, which appear in small numbers annually, have a reputation for faintness and delicacy. Dark skies are usually required to see them; bright moonlight on Dec. 22 will only exacerbate the problem of visibility. However, say forecasters, during an outburst of Ursids there may be a fair number of bright meteors. No one knows what will happen--all the more reason to look!

Polaris is named for its current position as the closest star to the North Pole, keyphrases: the pathfinder; a nurturing mission. Polaris is always at culmination and is the point of stillness--the celestial pole. Visible from the equator to the North Pole, it never sets in the northern hemisphere; in the southern hemisphere, Polaris is never visible, but that's just the way it goes.

Polaris is the brightest of the seven main stars of the constellation Ursa Minor, the Little Bear, but it hasn't always been the pole star, you know, for in ancient times Ursa Minor was surrounded on three sides by the constellation, Draco, the Dragon.

When the brightest star in Draco, Thuban, was the pole star in 3,000 B.C.E., Ursa Minor was considered to be the wings of Draco.

Personally I always called Ursa Minor the Little Dipper--a rather faint and small group of stars but easy to find especially when you know the trick of following the line created in the Big Dipper by Merak and Dubhe (the pointers) which lead the eye north to Polaris and there you are!

Growing up in Georgia (the drought-riddled Georgia of 2007) our water bubbled up from an artesian well, and in my fertile little noggin I linked the Little Dipper with the delicious, naturally cool water from the tap. Wish I had some now, but the Little Dipper is all spilled out.

For more on Fixed Stars, here's an article, Fixed Stars, why bother? from Bernadette Brady herself. Enjoy! And keep an eye out for the Ursids!
