Astrology and Places: Russian Airstrikes in Syria on 30 September 2015 – and: the astrogeographical constellations and future transits for Damascus
The astrological Chart for the supposed time of the first russian airstrikes during the Syrian war on 30 September 2015 reveals an ascendant in highly imaginative water sign Pisces the sign of hiding, mystification, the dreamworld and and secret activities. Neptune the ruler of Pisces right next to the ascendant reveals an emphasis on secret activities and manipulation of media and public opinion rather than on the strength or efficiency of the airstrikes in the first place. This impression is even stronger as Neptune was in exact opposition to the midpoint of the Mars – Jupiter conjunction in Virgo – usually an absolutely strong, positive and highly auspiscious constellation for starting warfare which in this case was on the descendant in the position of a stage performance. The russian entry into the syrian war has a great potential to bring the US and Russian interests into harmony in the region for the first time in history since WW2. Therefore it cannot be excluded that the Obama administration despite all display of dissent with the russsian attacks in Syria is trying to play the russian card to change the public opinion in the US against the US war industries and pave the way for long-term solutions for the problem of the US created islamic fascist movements. But while writing this I`m aware that this hope may simply be a naive reflex included in the Pisces and Neptunic implications of the Russian secret politics and propaganda symbolized by the Pisces ascendant here.
I`m proposing to see the Syrian War as a conflict between US and Russian spheres of interest in the first place.
Before the russian participation in the Syrian War the situation in Syria like in Iraq, Afganisthan, Libya and other places has been dominated by the US strategical politics. The US strategy was intended at keeping the flame of war alive for long periods of time, providing the alibi to control it through air strikes while breeding fascist islamist organisations to further destabilize the region in order to fight back Russia`s strategical influence in these countries, which before the US interventions had all been under russian control.
The Moon in house 2 in Taurus is a clear sign of the russian intention to occupy territory and claim the authority of ownership of the right to consider Syria part of its sphere of strategical interest.
Astrogeographic position of Homs for morphogenetic field level 1 which defines the global, supraregional importance of the town of Homs: Homs the place of the first russian airstrikes is located at 20° of dynamic, male fire sign Aries a position transited by Uranus at 19° Aries. The second coordinate of Homs is located at 5° of mental fire sign Sagittarius affected on that day by the exact square of Mars to that position from 3° Virgo and soon (November 2015) to be transited by Saturn indicating a possible stabilization of the situation around Homs.
Astrogeographical Position of Damascus and Future Transits
Damascus the capital of Syria is located at 5° Capricorn and 16° Aries. The astrogeographical position at 5° Capricorn is in an exact opposition to the US capital Washington located at 6° Cancer. Therefore the extremely tight astrological transits between 2010 and 2013 ocurred for both capitals at the same time. The Start of the Syrian Civil War in March 2011 fell into the period of these tranits.
Between January 2010 and December 2012 Pluto passed the coordinate of the syrian capital at 5° Capricorn as he transited between 3° and 7° Capricorn. During that period Uranus moved into the sensitive position at 0° Aries (compare attack on Fort Sumter for Washington) in May 2010 adding to the tension caused by Pluto until March 2013. And finally Saturn`s transit into Libra between October 2009 and October 2010 made the year 2010 an intensely questioning phase for the government in Damascus.
The transit of Uranus between June 2013 and February 2016 over the second coordinate of Damascus at 16° Aries may be evaluated to have had a comparatively stabilizing effect for the government in Damascus as the syrian civil war spread across the border into Irak forcing the USA, France and other western countries to change their politics and postpone their attempts for further destabilization of the political situation in Syria.
The extremely tight and highly problematic transit of Pluto in a square to Damascus between February 2014 and November 2018 indicates that the syrian government will continue to be under heavy threat particularly by influences from outside of the country. Pluto`s square transition will be followed directly by the square position of Saturn to Damascus between January 2019 and January 2020, so that a phase of stabilization should not be calculable before the year 2020.
