Aquarius!!!

“When the Moon is in the Seventh House,
And Jupiter aligns with Mars,
Then peace will guide the planets,
And love will steer the stars, this the dawning of the Age of Aquarius..”

No doubt the idea of the Age of Aquarius became known in the whole world by this text from the hit song “Aquarius”, also outside astrological circles. It is one of the most famous song texts from the hippie musical “Hair”and who doesn’t know it? “’Hair” was originally a small-scale “off-broadway”’ production which was made really big by Milos Forman’s later film adaption.The song text and the whole musical reflect the feeling then, people really believed that a new time of peace, love and understanding would begin in the Age of Aquarius, an idea still fostered by many astrologers and New Agers.

It is to be expected that this idea will again be given much more attention, as not only the recent Great Conjunction fell in the first degree of Aquarius, on top of that on Thursday there will be six planets in the sign of the Water-Bearer. That is extraordinary, the last time this happened was on 4 February 1962, the birthday of the author of this post. Only then all the seven real planets were placed in the fixed Air sign. So it is a good time to ask what this could mean? For all clarity, the “New Age” and the “Age of Aquarius” are not exactly the same concepts, but they both refer to the idea that we are entering a much better, new time in which many awful old things will be left behind. Sounds really nice doesn’t it?

Saturn having fun?

The idea of Ages, connected to the signs originally came from theosophy. Theosophy was fiercely anti-Christian and tried to present itself as the future world religion at the end of the Nineteenth Century. Christ was associated with Pisces – for Christ is Ichtos, the Fish – and the new times of theosophy with Aquarius,so it was a smart piece of religious marketing, later picked up again by the hippies and the New Agers. It was said that the Vernal Equinox Point (VEP) was moving into Aquarius and that therefore inevitably Christianity was over and the time for theosophy had come. The big problem is: it is factually not true. It is baffling that for 130 years astrologers accepted this idea totally uncritically.

Astro-populism

It is is true that constellations – visible star groups  – are moving over the Vernal Equinox Point (VEP), but that is all you can say. The idea that we can have Ages of about 2000 years connected to signs is so problematical that these many problems cannot be discussed in this post. Not the least problem is that the VEP is still in Pisces and it will be for more than 800 years! So if you hear people saying that the Age of Aquarius is really dawning now, ask them if they know where the VEP is. They will not be able to give you an answer as they have never studied it. Most astrologers have no idea how the precession works.

It is very instructive to see this, it is a form of astro-populism, without any factual  foundation it plays on emotions and people stop thinking critically. Donald Trump must have learnt a lot from theosophy.  And then this: how could anyone who knows something about the mythological symbolism of the Water-Bearer say that a time of universal love, unity and freedom has come in which nasty, old thing will be left behind? Aquarius has Water in his jar, Water is desire, so he controls and disciplines desire. That is why the sign is ruled by Saturn. Now look again at Hair, it must be clear that Aquarius could not possibly have anything to do with that. And if you still don’t believe me, look around you! Now that Saturn disposes of six planets half the world is locked down!  A sign ruled by grumpy, old Saturn cannot possibly herald a period of wonderful, new things could it? So every symbolism and every technique is distorted and mispresented in order to have this idea of the Age of Aquarius.       

Astro-coup?

Burma, or as it is also called now Myanmar, is one of the countries in the world the rulers of which make an extensive use of astrology and other traditional sciences. The moment Burma gained its independence was even chosen by Burmese astrologers, that was on 4 January 1948, 4:20 A. M. (Asc 10.40 Sag) , the ceremony took place under bright Moon-light, during the night. A strange choice, although the rest of the election seems to have been made quite professionally, it is a strong chart in which Mars plays an important part, for many years a harsh military regime ruled the country.

Coup election?

However, over the past few years there seemed to be a positive change into a democracy with more freedom and several parties. Yesterday, this developement suddenly came to an end, the army, which had always remained an important factor retook its power. Political opponents, leaders of other parties were arrested and the state of emergency was announced for the time being for a year. Of course, this triggers the question what the progressions in the Burmese radix show, the radix itself will not be discussed here. Click on the download link below to be able to see the progressions.

One of the questions in the background is whether the military coup was an election? If the army has always made use of astrologers, this could well be so. Of course, this could be done by making a full election, but you can also “sail along” on the cosmic winds indicated in the chart and act at the moment the progressions are favourable for taking power. Burmese astrologers will use other techniques than we do, but this does not matter, a favourable moment is a favourable moment.     

It is amazing how clearly the progressions show the coup! Of course, this does not give any certainty as to whether this is indeed an astrologically chosen time but it certainly is good moment, if you would want to act in this way. For the first thing striking the eye is the MC changing sign, which would be a clear reflection of a change in government. The second point is the Pars Solis, the Part of the Sun, the “reversed Taurus” symbol in the chart, which as the solar Part is connected to power, it is on very martial Antares, ending cycles. This is a fast factor moving at one degree a month, so it can give you a rather precise timing.

South Node Phase

Just as fast is the Moon coming out off the Algol crisis zone (26 °Taurus- 10° Gemini) approaching mighty Aldabaran. Antares ends things, on Aldabaran a new start is made. The Part of the Sun and the Moon are applying to opposition and  yes the people (Moon) and the power (Part of the Sun)  are separating. The Moon is also entering the Mansion Al Dhabaran, the image of which is a charging cavalry man! By antiscion Venus (Lord 11 of the state’s resources in the radix) and Mars (the army) are going to conjunct, not bad for the army. So yes, it could very wel have been a elected moment, but it certainly shows that  1948 Burma radix works very well. Also the Firdaria, the rulers of phases of many years have changed this month, fom the expansive Jupiter-like North Node to the reductive Saturn-like South Node.  

Riots

Last week the dramatic  events in the US were discussed, now there are problem in The Netherlands. The curfew imposed on Saturday caused cropped-up frustrations about the Corona crisis to burst out, rioters mixed with demonstrators against the Corona measures and created havoc. The police were forced to take hard action, this was a bit more fierce than just the usual rioting taking place now and then .So it is interesting to take a look at what is happening in the chart of The Netherlands. The best Dutch radix is the chart of the exact moment of the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter preceding the foundation of the Dutch state.   

This Dutch radix will not be discussed here as this has been done before, those who are interested to investigate this GC-radix, the data are 4 September 1563, 18:15:30 LMT, Amsterdam, Asc  28.55 Aquarius. It is a remarkable fact that in these times the star Ful Al Hut, the Mouth of the Fish was on the Ascendant. In Fum Al Hut or Fomalhout Aquarius pours out the water form his jar, this is sweet water, so not the wild salt water  any more. Here a major Dutch myth can be seen, myth is what the stars indicate.

The current lunar return based on this GC-radix, made more than 450 years later, can be seen by clicking on the download button above. This Lunar Retrun took place on 9 January and will be in force till 5 February, it shows the state of the Netherlands this month. What strikes the eye immediately is the Sun, the general signficator of authorities on the Ascendant, so they will manifets very strongly this month. You can say that, for the first time since the German occupation in the Second World War a curfew was imposed and this will trigger a strong reaction as the Sun in Capricorn is in “negative reception” with the Moon. Every planet in Capricorn harms the Moon as Caporicorn is the sign in which the Moon has its detriment.

The Moon is the General Significator of the people who will also manifest strongly, as it is on the MC. It is also in strong mutual reception with Mars as the Moon is placed in the sign ruled by Mars, and Mars is in the sign where the Moon has its exaltation. Mars has just left his domicile behind and entered his detriment, so it will show its most vicious side. It is this nasty violent Mars that is so strongly connected to the people- Moon, this shows the rioting.

Mars also squares the conjunction of Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter in the first house. Mercury is Lord 8 which does not indicate people will die, but it is not pleasant, Lord 8 can also show havoc. Saturn of limitations is Lord 1 (the Netherlands) curbing Jupiter (free movement), this conjunction is on the MC by antiscion. So the many angular position are a clear sign something noticeable will take place  this month.

It is intriguing to see that the Lunar Manions, which we have given some attention over the past few weeks also have their role to play. The transit postion of the Moon in a lunar masion gives the general ambience of a day. On Sunday when the riots broke out , the Moon was moving through Al Dabaran, a very fiery and martial masion, the mansion image is a charging cavalry man. 

Anti-Ares

The star Antares, the Scorpion’s Heart, with an intense martial-red colour, shows again that its dark reputation is well-deserved. The name of this very powerful royal star that ends cycles and therefore is also called the Death Star, was derived from “ Anti-Ares”. Ares is the war god Mars and “anti” indicates he is the war god’s rival. Antares is even fiercer in its martial activities than Mars itself. So if Antares is activated a merciless battle can be expected, of course such an activation of Antares will allways have to be judged in the context of the situation and the nature of the chart. Antares is not death and endings just like that.

The new American government presents itself

The recent events in the US look Antares-like and indeed in the progressions based on the US Great Conjunction chart a clear Antares activation can be seen. The US Great Conjunction chart, as was often explained on this blog, is the chart of the exact moment of the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter preceding the foundation of the US as an independent nation. The recent developments in the US illustrate again that this is a very effective radix, much more effective than other charts which have been proposed. This GC-radix will not be analysed now, we will look at the progressions, today Joe Biden will inaugurated and tensions will climax, click on the link below to view the progressions.

Mars power

It is immediately clear, the progressed Sun is moving over Antares, in predicting on the basis of mundane charts, even if they are centuries old, we will always look at the star positions now. The Sun is the General Significator of power so yes it could not be clearer, the Sun progression is moving away form Antares, but it will be felt for another six months. So this releases an enormous Mars energy, on top of that Mars itself is also active. The progression of Mars, moving fast now at one degree a year, squares natal Mars from the first degree of Aquarius where its is placed on fiery Altair, a powerful Eagle star of a Mars/Jupiter nature. This progression will also remain in orb for another six months. Progressed Jupiter/ natal Lord 10 ( the governmental elite) is also involved by opposition with natal Mars.

Of course, the progressed Jupiter is moving too slowly to be used on its own in predicting but is activated now by the square from Mars and the it counts. This happens on the progressed nodal axis, always a sign of important changes. The fast progressed factors the Part of Fortune (PoF), the Part of the Sun (PoS) and the Moon, moving at about one degree a month, complete this picture. The PoF sextiles/trines this progressed Jupiter/Lord 10 in opposition with natal Mars, this will be over in a month. The PoS is on Praesepe a very malefic nebula,which can associated with a brainless, merciless power struggle, this will also be over in a month.   

Al Haqa     

 The Moon progressing thorugh the Manzils, the Western lunar mansions, gives more information about the developments in the country, it will soon leave Al Dabaran, a  very fiery and martial mansion to move over into the next one.  For a year the Moon was in Al Dabaran, to which a picture of a fiery galopping cavalry-man holding a snake belongs, an appropriate image for an election year of  extreme polarisation.  The next mansion is Al Haqa, its picture is a crowned head surrounded by stars, indicating a king controlling strong wild desires by clear, cool thinking. The transition to the Biden administration could not have been shown much clearer. The Mars activations wil remain in force for another six months, but the absolute climax of tensions, indicated by the fast factors will decrease in one or two months.

Trump in Al Sarfah

This week shocking images came from the US. Instigated by the president a raging mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, the heart of American democracy. It is a miracle that only a few people were killed, because the police controlled itself it did not turn into a bloodbath. This danger was clearly present, with more than a few neonazis in the mob and a hardly concealed call of Donald Trump to lynch his vice-president Mike Pence. Pence could be brought into safety, this will have been the end of his dog-like loyalty to Trump.

So it is interesting to take a look at progressions of (almost) ex-president Trump at the moment, click on the download button below to be able to view them. Striking the eye is the (primary direction) of the MC on the progressed position of Saturn in its detriment, so showing its nastiest face and indicating  that Trump lost the election. The Part of Fortune is on the South Scale now, the merciless Scorpion’s Claw harshly restoring the balance and the Part of the Sun, especially important for rulers, is on progressed Mars in its detriment, so the fighter planet will also show its most violent side. This conjunction falls on Vindemiatrix, the star of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, who calls up forces he can’t control. Note the parts are swift, one degree is a month, so this is quite precise.

Al Sarfah

The MC, moving about a degree a year, will still be on this nasty Saturn for some time and the next six months the Part of the Sun will be moving over chaotic Neptune, by antiscion the progressed Moon will oppose this position. The same Moon can tell us more about what is going on, in another way, by its movement through the lunar mansions. These are our own Western lunar mansions which were forgotten, but now they are back. The Moon wil leave the Al Zubra manion to enter Al Sarfah soon , both are Leo mansions so connected to power struggles. In Al Zubra, the Mansion of the Manes, the image is a heavily armed warrior with a big lance riding on the back of a lion, no explanation required.

In the next mansion Al Sarfah the power is leaking away, according to its image the warrior is not riding the lion any more, but is on foot fighting a big dragon! In Al Zubra the key-words are prestige and charisma, in Al Sarfah separation and combat. So this shows that we will hear more from him , this may also have to with the many legal procedures that will be starting when Trump is an ordinary citizen again without presendential invioliability. Trump is gliding from the Back of the lion to its Tail which he can still pull very provocatively.  

In 452…

In our last post on this blog the transition of the Great Conjunctions into the Air element now and the same transition 800 years ago were compared. Then as now, there were very fast developments, a lot of international movements, a fundamental change in the power balance and many innovations in the field of knowledge. A climax in these changes were the invasions of the Mongols, united under Djenghiz Khan, they swept a like a thunder storm through many parts of Asia and they even occupied parts of Europe. Europe, the Occident, the land of matter (Earth)  was attacked by armies from the East when the time of Earth ended and Air times began.     

This is repeating itself now, though it is a virus from the East now that has stormed our borders and not an army. The virus is the climax in the transition to Air and it seems that the West is indeed more heavily afflicted by the virus than China, Corona is the instrument by which the US looses its leading position in the world, making room for the new power in the East. It is the same cycle unfolding and that is very impressive. But we can go even further back in time, as there is a comparable transition of the GC’s every 800 years and this brings us to the year 452 when after a long transit phase the GC’s also finally moved into Air. That is really astounding, because the same thing happened then.

Atilla, the Scourge of God

Of course, every school-child knows that then the (Western-)Roman Empire came to an end, although the Eastern part existed for another 1000 years. Now that is a shifting power-balance! The impulse that put an end to the Roman Empire also came from the East which is even more astounding. Again from the heart of Asia, it was Atilla the Hun, the Scourge of God, who pillaging stormed through Europa. Fearfully flying from the attacking Huns German tribes invaded the weakened Roman Empire. Under this pressure, it finally collapse , which was the beginning of a new world as for a very long time the Romans had been the stong dominating power. Empires, are like human beings however, they may seem very strong now but inevitably in the end they pass away.

The wheel of history, shown by the Great Conjunctions, will mercilessly go on turning. This gives us a majestic view of history by which also this time can be given its place, be understood and accepted. Of course, no modern historian would look at history in this way therefore their analyses are most often not very clear or inspiring. Once this was different and it is intriguing to read how astrology was common knowledge in days of yore, also among the Mongol tribes conquering whole continents 800 years ago.

Mongol Astrology

The story is that the birth of a great man was expected in 1186 when there was a conjunction of the seven planets in Libra, and that was the year Djenghiz Khan was born.  In 1226 the same Djenghiz Khan, after a life of great conquests, saw five planets “on a row” and feared that his end had come. In the middle of this conjunction was the GC of Saturn and Jupiter of 1226, indicating the final transition into the Air element. It is not known what exactly the Great Kahn thought or what his astrologers told him, but it seems there was a acute consciousness of the meaning of the GC cycle among the Mongols. The Great Khan turned out to have been right, he died the next year. Now that the GC’s had moved into Air , the acute tensions began to diminish, the Mongols who caused the crisis in the transition time to Air, began to loose impetus. History did not need them or Djenghiz Kahn any more and their role came to an end.   

In 1226…

And yes there it was, the famous Great Conjunction (“GC”) in the first degree of Aquarius, the “cause” of the Corona crisis, heralding Air times. It was fascinating to see that about which I had written and spoken so many times, really up there in the sky. Astrology happens out there, not only on your computer screen. Now that the GC has “perfected” we may expect a crisis peak and indeed strict measures have been imposed, there is a Corona mutation, the UK is isolated and a no-deal Brexit is a real possibility. Especially, the Western world is in trouble, China has control over Corona, without a vaccin. This is to be expected as a transition of the GC’s brings a new world power, so China will be better off than the US.

1226

It was 800 years ago that the same transition of the GC’s from Earth to Air took place on 12 March 1226. Then like now it was a transition period of 40 years, first after 200 years of Earth, in 1186 the  GC came to Libra (just like in 1980), in 1206 the GC went back to Earth (like in 2000) to enter the Air element finally in 1226 (just like now, and also in the first degrees of Aquarius). In the 200 Air years to follow, the Gothic Age flowered, churches soared upo into the Air, into the light, refined courtly culture developed, through Moorish Spain and Byzantium a lot of innovative knowledge streamed in. The Knights Templar, chased out off the Holy Land by the armies of Islam, created the first banking system, they became extremely rich and powerful and were destroyed dramatically. 

Mongol Riders

The transition, then as now, brought much international moving around, a shift in the power balance and innovations in the field of knowledge. The West as the land of matter (Earth) , the place where the Sun sets, came under fire now that Earth times weer over. One of the most dramatic events was the rise of the Mongol Empire. Then as now the danger came from the East, now in the form of a virus, then as an appearently unstoppable wave of superior Mongol armies, spreading over a large part of Asia, occupying even parts of Eastern Europe. This happened in the middle of the transition time (like 9/11) , like a storm they seemed to come from nowhere, the explanation can, of course, be found in the GC’s. You can say that the Blitzkrieg of the Mongol riders was Airy, the empire was founded in 1206 in the middle of the transition time by Djengiz Khan.    

Cathedrals

The Mongol Empire finally crumbled, but the power balance had shifted for ever. The situation now is comparable with the situation then, a lot of turbulence in the world and a crisis atmosphere. Of course, the (post)modern world is ruled just as much by the stars, but it is less conscious of this fact than ever, it narcistically sees itself as the factor “making history happen”.  It is all comparable but not the same. Just like then the GC falls in the first  degrees of Aquarius but there is a different star there now, because of the precession. So it is similar but nothing is repeated, there is no cycle of “etenal return.” Every moment is unique, because the divine creativity is inexhaustible, that is essence of the precession.

We are now in the middle of of it all, but looking back in history may work relativizing. Then many things were lost, but there were also new developments. Then too, people were very afraid of the invading Mongols but they did not last for long. The crusaders lost the Holy Land, but on the basis of the knowledge party gained there, the Gothic cathedrals could be built, that unsurpassed summit of medieval genius. It was an impulse lading to many developments, not only to losses. Certainly, Air time now will not only bring positive things, but there wil be room for good developments too, only this is difficult to see now in the middle of the crisis. These are the labour pains of Air. And now that we are leaving behind the last tense conjunction, things will slowly start to normalise.    

Pegasus Astrologisch Advies wishes you a blessed Christmas!!

(Ex?-)President Biden

First : now that The Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter will take place soon (on 22 December) we can expect some climax in the crisis, In many Europan countries stricter Corona measures have been been imposed to control the second wave. In 2021 all the tense conjunctions of this year will be left behind, in The Netherlands the situation will finally normalise mid-March.

Biden’s fall?

This week the discussion of the predictions that can be done about Joe Biden’s presidency will be continued. Last week the lunar returns,that could be made on the basis of the expected inauguration time, were analysed and they indicated November 2021 as a very tense period. The question is now whether the tertiary directions calculated on the basis of this inauguration chart also show problems around that time. It will be assumed that the inauguration ceremony will take place as planned on 20 January at 12:00.

It is simple to make the tertiary directions by using the 1 day = 1 month key (with a month of 28 days, corresponding to the astronomical/astrological reality). To get the directive positions for October /November 2021 the January inauguration chart will have to be moved forward 9 or 10 days (=months), so recalculated for 29/30 January. The fast factors the Moon, the Part of Fortune (the Part of the Moon) , and the Part of the Sun should be clearly distinguished from the slow factors the Sun, the MC and the Asc. In analysing the three fast factors their movemement in a month (= 1 day) should be taken into account (about 13 degrees for the Moon).

To see the tertiary directed positions for October/November 2021 click on the download button above. The first thing striking the eye is of course that the Asc is on super-malefic Algol, entering the crisiszone ending on Aldebaran at 10 Gemini. However, this is not as dramatic as it seems because inaugurations take place in most cases at the same time and date in Washington, so every presidency has this direction in November in the year of the inauguration. Not automatically the same is the MC-Saturn conjunction by antiscion (mirrored position) in opposition with the Ascendant moving over Algol.In the inauguration chart Saturn is the all-important ruler of the tenth house.

The Liquidator

Another very important house ruler Venus /Lord 1 is moving over overwhelmig Pluto and fate star Terebellum which are placed on the MC in the inauguration chart. The Sun of leadership conjuncts Jupiter, in the inauguration Jupiter is Lord 8 of death and endings. The fast Part of Fortune moves over Antares the martially -red Heart of the Scorpion, indcating the end of a a cycle. The Part of the Sun, just as fast, is on the harsh South Scale, “The Liquidator” and will oppose the inauguration-Asc. The  Moon will be squaring the Asc/Desc-axis direction.

So the tertiary directions confirm Joe Biden will, have to deal with a very big problem (Will he fall ill or die?) in November. Another creative way of predicting are the month profections, counted from the first house of the inauguration chart (so the first house is for  20 January to 20 February, the second house for 20 February to 20 March etcetera) . In November the profection will arrive in the tenth house which has Pluto on the cusp. The conclusion that November 2021 will be very bad for Biden seems inevitable.

Joe Biden’s lunar returns

Over the past few weeks, we have taken a look at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration chart and also at the prediction methods applied to that chart, showing the developments  in the presidency month by month. For the relatively short duration of a presidency of 48 months the lunar returns and the tertiary directons (1 day = 1 month, months of 28 days) are the appropriate instruments. Not only did  JFK’ s inauguration chart clearly indicate the dramatic ending, by the lunar returns and the tertiary directions it could be predicted in which month fate would strike.

Some time ago on this blog Joe Biden ’s expected inaugration chart was discussed and it showed quite some tensions. Assuming that Biden’s  inauguration as the new US president will take place as planned on 20 January 12:00, it is possible to check by the lunar returns and tertiary directions derived from that chart, to see when these tensions will climax. So we will have to go through all the lunar returns and the first LR indicating big trouble,  is the one fallling on the fifth of May.

Beneficial Spica

The IC/MC-axis of this LR (not shown here)  made on the basis of the inauguration is reversed in relation to the “radix” ( radix = root, in this context the inauguration chart is the radix). Pluto is exactly on the IC, Venus /Lord 1 is on the the main star of the miserable Pleiads and has left her own sign, loosing a lot of power. The Sun of leaders is right on cusp 8 of death. That does not look very nice at all, although the Ascendant is on Spica the most beneficial and protective star in the heavens, so this is a powerful compensation for the problems indicated.

This May Lunar Return is not given here, because there is another LR drawing even more attention to itself the one falling on 20 October covering the largest part of November, click on the download button above  to view this lunar return.  In this LR too Pluto is on an angle but now it is right on the Ascendant! So this LR Asc conjuncts the “’radix” MC, the most problemtical radix-position is repeated on the most important point in the LR chart, the Ascendant! On the MC is the merciless royal South Scale, the cosmic bulldozer correcting any inbalance without respect for any person, no prisoners taken, this MC/IC-axis falls reversed over the radix Asc/Desc-axis. Uranus, the castration star and the ultimate reality check is on the IC and so in conjunction with the “radix”-Asc.

The South Scale or the Scoprion’s Claw – no prisoners taken

So the prediction is that Joe Biden will be confronted by some big problem in May which he will be able to solve. In November this (or other?) trouble will resurface and then he will nog get away with it. Next week we will take a look at what the tertiary directions have to say about this.  

JFK is Phaeton

Last week we discussed John F. Kennedy’s inauguration chart and how it was indicated that it all would end so dramatically. It was also shown that it is simply possible to make lunar returns on the basis of an inauguration chart to check the monthly developments in the presidency. JFK’s murder was clearly shown by the relevant lunar return. The time-scale of months is very approriate for a presidency which lasts for four years (48 months), therefore we could also use another prediction method on the months’ scale, the tertiary directions. Today we will apply these to Kennedy’s inauguration chart, next week we will investigate how this looks for Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.

1 Day = 1 Month

The tertiary directions work on the basis of a 1 day = 1 Month key, like the secundary progressions found by a 1 Day = 1 Year measure. In this calculation you will take the astronomical /astrological month of 28 days, not the conventional calendar month. In this way you get a calculation date for a chart showing the positions working out in a certain month, just like the seconday progressions only on a shorter time-scale. It is important to see clearly that this is the only thing progressions or directions show! The chart picture is not a chart, there is no such thing as a directed or progressed chart, there are only progressed or directed positions.    

To view the tertiary directions of the month JFK was murdered, click on the download  button above. It is good to realise that if you move the calculation date one day further, you will get the positions working out a month later. For one day is one month. The difference in speed of the  various directed factors is also be noticed, the Moon and the Parts of the Luminaries ( the Part of Fortune and Part of the Sun) are fast, in a day (= a month) they move about thirteen degrees, for the slow factors the  Sun, MC and Asc this is about one degree.

It strikes the eye that in the tertiary directions violent Mars has come back to its “radix” (inauguration, see last week’s post) position. Malefic Mars is in its fall so it will show ist nastiest side. The MC moves over the star Achernar associated with the fall of the solar chariot, steered of course by the president (in mythology by Phaeton). The Moon is on the very smart but violent Dog Star Procyon (Lee Harvey Oswald?) opposing directed Saturn (Lord 10 of the position) and Jupiter (Lord 8 of Death) placed on the star of fate Terebellum.

Phaeton’s fall

Al Natrah

The Part of the Moon (Part of Fortune)  is by antiscion on the MC of the job and it will be entering Sagittarius soon (the PoF moves 13 degrees a day), activating its ruler Jupiter Lord 8 of Death. The leader-Sun is moving over the South Node, symbolising exit. The indications are over-whelming and the  Arabic Mansions of the Moon seem to add relevant information here too. The Moon is moving from Aldira to Al Natrah, Aldira is ruled by Castor the dying brother (the Kennedy’s were very much a family) and Al Natrah is malefic Praesepe’s mansion, also know as “the Gap”!Next week we will look at Joe Biden’s inauguration chart in the same way.
