Horoscope: Saudi Arabia 1902 w Oct 2, 2018 planets

Oct 11, 2018: For those who may be interested, The Guardian has published a Timeline concerning Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance on October 2, 2018 going into the Saudi embassy in Istanbul, Turkey, "after lunch." Here is the country's January 15, 1902 horoscope (one of three or more) for Saudi Arabia with October 2, 2018 planets highlighted in green surrounding the chart and speculatively timed for 2:03 pm EEDT with karmic Saturn @3Cap05 rising; chart data from The World Book of Horoscopes, N. Campion; chart #288:

Apologies! Blogger has found issues with code and the image will not re-upload. You'll find the horoscope at my all-purpose astrology blog Jude Cowell Astrology.

Update Oct 12, 2018: it has been reported on MSNBC that a video time stamp shows Mr. Khashoggi entering the Saudi embassy at 1:14 pm which gives 22Sag19 rising ('23Sag' = "Immigrants Entering a New Country") and 14Lib43 at Midheaven with Mercury and Sun snugged around it. Restrictive Saturn, planet of authority, is first planet to rise. It's an Hour of Jupiter and broadcasting Jupiter is chart-ruler but is unaspected as is the Ascendant.

Please enlarge the image to read chart details. In the center of the horoscope are listed Saudi Arabia's Syzygy Moon (last lunation, a New Moon prior to the overthrow of Riyadh, the founding event this chart is based upon--with 2018 Pluto conjunct the Syzygy Moon and denoting a critical time of development and issues of separation), and its Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') in the 12 North Saros Series; 12 North's theme is on the chart. Last 12N: on SA's birthday January 15, 2010 @25Capricorn conjunct natal Sun and Jupiter; next 12N: January 26, 2028 @6AQ conjunct Saudi Arabia's natal Icarus (5AQ47). Note that 5-6 Aquarius happens to be the position of America's natal South Node (1776).
Although I had not intended to compare Mr. Trump's natal planets with those of Saudi Arabia (pals though they may be--he thinks), a few of his planets are listed around the chart as well but are not highlighted. Of note is Saudi Arabia ('SA')'s Pluto @17Gem02 Rx conjoining Trump's natal Uranus, his 'guiding planet' of chaos and disruption, an explosive, revolutionary combination of planetary energies. And SA's natal Vertex ('VX') @00Vir26 conjoins the occult 8th cusp, royal Regulus (success if revenge is avoided), and the natal Ascendant of Donald Trump with his aggressive Mars rising @26Leo.
Now naturally you see that SA has a Sun-Jupiter conjunction @25Capricorn rising where transit Pluto will soon trod, and that Mr. Underworld was already near SA's natal Saturn (19Cap22) on October 2, 2018. In fact, Pluto's recent Station on September 30, 2018 @18Cap45 was within orb of SA's natal Saturn, describing a period when power and authority are abused. Plus, the nation is having a Mars Return (10AQ21) this very day (October 11, 2018 at 9:29:52 am BAT Riyadh) and will soon have a three-fer Saturn Return in 2019, exact on: March 23rd; June 7th (Rx); and December 14, 2019, when all accounts are ready to be tallied and lessons have surely been learned (for best karmic results).
And big as life, there's lady Venus so recently turned retrograde (October 5, 2018 @10Sco50) at the top of Saudi Arabia's chart on October 2, 2018 conjunct the nation's natal North Node of meetings and encounters. As you know, the top of a horoscope is the most visible point, the Midheaven/Goal Point--the World Stage. Whether October 2nd Venus represents Khashoggi's fiancee and/or the concepts of jealousy and vengeance, yours truly does not know. But Mr. Khashoggi is known as a critic of the Saudi regime and since he allegedly entered the embassy to get papers that would allow them to marry, perhaps this Venus in this particular chart represents love, romance, and relationships--and meetings (NN) about love matters. Yet we cannot rule out negatives such as betrayal and spying because Venus is in brooding, secretive Scorpio, a sign associated with death, control, and in-depth investigation which includes journalism and reporters like Jamal Khashoggi.
Of course, journalists are often considered by the regimes they cover to be spies, are they not?

For more details on this disturbing topic see today's CNN report Saudis Discussed Plan to Lure Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia, US intercepts show which didn't work on him so they used the Saudi embassy in Istanbul to 'detain' him. And from 2016 along the same lines, also see Does Vladimir Putin Kill Journalists?.

G-20 Summit November 15--16, 2015 w Sun in controlling Scorpio

Once again it's time for the 10th annual G-20 Summit which is being held in Antalya, Turkey. The event spreads before and after for various groups but the main leaders get together on November 15 and 16, 2015 with Sun (leadership) in secretive Scorpio and the Moon in ambitious Capricorn. And of course the Moon's sign clues us in on the mood of the two days--of the attendees and of the public--and with Capricorn, we think serious, ambitious, mature, and perhaps restrictive.

Naturally this combination of energies includes sign rulers Mars and Pluto (Scorpio) and Saturn (Capricorn), planet of government, law, and business. Obviously representatives from each level of management will be in attendance and the summit's Scorpionic interests include issues of control and manipulation along with Big Business, the occult, and matters of death and transformation.

And if we look closer at the Sun Scorpio-Moon Capricorn blend we find a practical Water-Earth condition in which a determination to do what needs to be done is uppermost. This suggests a group of tough and tenacious people, some possessing a dark, brooding intensity with a streak of self-righteous judgmentalism to their natures. Or perhaps judgment is what is expected from them along with being called to account (Saturn.)

At some point during the summit the Moon (emotions) will conjoin wealthy, powerful Pluto (13Cap+) so although few if any details may be released publicly we can glean a few potential results such as: extreme emotions being violently expressed or shouted, vanity offended, actions toward objectives compete with sentimentality, personal insults hurled, fanatics and crusaders strive toward goals without regard for other people. (Ebertin.) And of course, when the Moon reaches Pluto, the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square (though waning at the moment) is triggered which is most likely a reference to protests against world leaders attending G-20 Summit 2015 and what is assumed to be draconian measures that few populations are eager to experience.

So whatever hidden agenda the G-20 Summit organizers have and plan to execute upon the world, let us close with three famous quotes from people who were born under the Sun Scorpio-Moon Capricorn personality blend for to me all three quotes seem to apply:

"Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash." - General George Patton.

"Puritanism...helps us enjoy our misery while we are inflicting it on others." - Marcel Ophuls.

"He was like a cock who thought the sun had risen to hear him crow." - George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans).

Constantine the Great's Conversion and "the New Rome" - video

Since Washington DC has been referred to as "the new Rome" and Constantine the Great moved the capital of the Roman Empire to Turkey dubbing Constantinople as "the new Rome" it's always been interesting to me to delve into Constantine the Great's conversion to Christianity which contemporaries and historians since have not always accepted as genuine. This, of course, involves the Vision of the Lighted Cross he had on October 27, 312 just before the Battle of the Milvian Bridge where he defeated Maxentius, then entered Rome in triumph on October 29, 312. Rome's Arch of Constantine continues to commemorate his victory.

But as the following excerpted 4-min-32-sec video points out, Roman Emperor Constantine may have been seeking forgiveness for murdering his son and having his wife suffocated in a hot steam bath, two acts which might bother the conscience of almost any dictator of the global expansionist variety--and pagan priests had refused to pardon him for his crimes:

Come to think of it, I'm not certain the sin of murder bothers the consciences of our modern crop of imperial expansionists who would have to have consciences first. You've seen them: they read their Global Government scripts like dead-eyed robots.

articles on Bush adm's disastrous policies

You may be up to the gills with such news but is busy tonight providing us with informative articles and essays worth noting:

An Unstable Marriage

By Jonathan Steele

Defeat in Iraq? The paradox of Baghdad is that a fundamentally anti-western government is umbilically linked to US occupation.

Read Jonathan Steele's article here.


Iraq: The Forever Treaty

By Seattle PI Editorial

With the clock ticking on our "commitments" in Iraq - the international mandate expires in less than a year - the Bush administration is left in an interesting position. It could create a plan for a troop withdrawal; instead, the plan being negotiated with the Iraqi government focuses on reasons to stay there.

Read the rest here.


Why Bush Wants to Legalize the Nuke Trade with Turkey

Exonerating Neocon Criminals

By Joshua Frank

According to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds there is a vast black market for nukes, and certain U.S. officials have been supplying sensitive nuclear technology information to Turkish and Israeli interests through its conduits.

You gotta read this one.


The Profile of a Third World Country

How Bush Destroyed the Dollar

By Paul Craig Roberts

It is difficult to know where Bush has accomplished the most destruction, the Iraqi economy or the US economy.

Roberts' article helps us figure it out--and they're parasitically linked, aren't they?

Well, I still say all the catastrophic machinations perpetrated from Washington in the last several years have been not blunders so much as ill-managed but purposeful chaos which is trotting along quite nicely, thanks, forked tail and all. Here's its commander-in-thief (shout-out to Thom York who called it early on):

UPDATE Monday 1.28: today I've been surfing the web more than usual after completing the above post on tonight's SOTU address which has quite wumped me out and I re-found a site I had forgotten to put on the SO'W Links List and so had not visited for months: Real Clear Politics where you probably find news links every day. I like the organisation of them and the variety presented.

Then there's David K. Fuller's article 20 Reasons not to vote for Juan McAmnesty which has illuminating info and links concerning John McCain--in case you're on the verge of voting for him please read this first. Thanks, David!

limming Turkey

Though on a secret mission far away, former agent to our nation, Mr.A.Cat has sent us a dispatch containing a new political limerick, Kittens from Turkey to which I have added a smidge of art, Cat in a Very Green Chair.

Back later--this will be a blogging weekend and I can't wait to catch up on reading my favorite blogs!
