Tiger Woods – Venus Quandary Position

The surprising allegations of the soft spoken, angel face and sports superstar, Tiger Woods has taken a different stroke, as the world continues to hear about his “incident” as a womanizer. What? The lean and golf machine is a womanizer? And where did we miss the boat? Does this surprise you? Well, from an astrological point of view it should not, since his chart is quite clear of his inclinations.

Here is what Bonatti has to say;

“It signifies that the native will be unyielding toward women, not living with them well, and he will make much use of low-class and foul and unsuitable women, and many harms and inconveniences will follow from thence, and he will hardly or never marry, he will pursue it with difficulty and complications, and because of it he will concur many contentions and quarrels and on the occasion of those contentions, many unlucky things will happen to him, and he will fall suspcious of his wife.”

And Dorotheos of Sidon;

“If Venus is in the house of Mars or terms, then he will be one of those in whom greed and evil quarrels are stirred up and injury, and this misery will reach him from women, and he will have intercourse with a women not his own, but one who is subservient or disgraced or a serving girl, and a women will not be constant with him but it will confuse him.”

We have heard that he has seen prostitutes and waitresses, and who knows what else. But his stars certainly fit the picture. Vettius Valens goes on to explain that that his Saturn trine Venus will make the native promiscuous. Umm; Would 13 lovers make one promiscuous? I guess that would be somewhat relative to some.

Venus is in the bounds of Saturn, and according to Masha’allah ;

“he will find headache due to women, and he will seek and take for a wife a talkative woman, one liable to anger, proud and insubordinate.”



Liable to anger, proud and insubordinate? Does that explain her outburst? Of course it does, she ran after the guy with a nine iron, and it wasn’t with the intention of taking a practice swing in the middle of the night.


What does the future behold for Tiger?

His profected year falls under Cancer, and the Moon which is his Ruler for the year is in Sagittarius.

Masha’ allah tells us when the Moon is in the bounds of Saturn;

“he will find a lawsuit because of women and his offsprings”

Is this the beginning of stormy waters? His Moon is opposition to Mars, which is in his XII house of his profected year, and this tells us that a hidden enemy will besiege him and will want to hurt his work. His Moon in the VI house of his profected year augurs that he will make haste decision about in his work, and this will cause upset. This is not a good time for him having away from the tournaments.

His X house profected year we see his honor, and it is in Aries, and Mars rules over Aries, and this means that much contention and lost will befall him.

His Moon is in his third quarter, and this augurs he will lose a lot of his substance and wealth.

What about his marriage?

Well, when we look at the atasyr, Venus will be conjunct his Mars between the month of February and March, and this, if he does not handle his affairs well, could mean the beginning of an ardent divorce. What her lawyers will demand from him will not come easy, and much delay will be seen, as far as the coming of a final settlement. So his divorce will probably take place some time in April 2011.

When will Tiger return to the course?

I believe he will start giving some indication of returning back to the game sometime in March/April, but he will begin playing no later than June/July.

I do not see that this will take a big toll from his game, he is an excellent and competitive player, but this will only be possible if he can overcome his depression.

The Downfall of the Presidential Administration

Never has a President had so much political influence as President Obama has. He has more political firepower than any other administration has had in more than fifty years. With both Congressional Houses, the favor of the people, and the news media supporting his views.

Than why does it seem, he is heading towards an Administration Downfall, during the following weeks?

I am not going to attempt to answer this from a political point of view, but I will try to explain it from an astrological analysis. We will look at the US Libra Ingress and assuming his birth certificate is correct, we will look at his Solar Return and his Ascension to Power.

Ascension to Power:

On June28th. I wrote about the Ascension of Obama “The Chronicle of a Future Announced – The Ascension of Obama”;

His Ascendant is Taurus and his MC Aquarius both in a fixed sign, and according to Sahl, he says;

“And if the benefics aspected the Sun, and you found the Lord of the Ascendant, and the Sun in optimal place from the Ascendant, and he, were in a fixed sign, his principate will be prolonged, and he will see what he wants in it.”

Venus is in the XI House is in an optimal place, but contrary to sect and in opposition to Saturn, and the Sun is in the X, but not strong, so we can say that he will partially achieve his goals and that his principate will not be prolonged. The Ascending sign is in a fixed sign, Venus is in her exaltation, but she losses her strength, because it is contrary to her sect, She is also in opposition to Saturn, that is very malefic. So we can judge the following;

· The First House represents the people, therefore their expectations are high, but being contrary to its sect, the people find themselves losing hope, or at least, not all is fulfilled.

· The Moon is also significator of the people, and she is in Scorpio, which is indication that the people will suffer affliction, and there will be no regard to justice or truth. There will be much anger, bitterness, and contention. Agrippa tells us that nothing should commence under a bad Moon, the Moon is peregrine, in her fall and Void of Course. But she is also decreasing in light, and Firmicus Maternus tells us that those who have wanning Moon will lose what they have accomplished in life.

· The Moon always is the significador of rustics, and it is in its fall, in the sign of Scorpio, and this is indicative that people will be in a bad state, we will see increase in taxes, and a lot of contention.

Sahl also indicates that there are eight defects or bad indications for the Moon, and one of them are;

· Second, if the Moon is in the degree of its downfall, (which is Scorpio)…, and continues to add.., These are the aforesaid defects of the Moon and her impediments, under which no work should be undertaken, (that is, while the Moon is so, any work should not be begun nor praised in a nativity nor in foreign travel).

· Saturn is in opposition to Venus and he is retrograde, and Saturn rules the X house, which represents the “King” or in this case, the President, and he moves away from the promises made to the people. The President will bring bad news to the people.

And Masha’allah also tells us that if the significator of the king is retrograde;

· “they signify the loss and weakness of the king and of the citizens of that same kingdom”

In the X House we have the Sun, which is also the significator of the President in Mundane Astrology, and he is placed in the figure of Aquarius, his detriment, and it is curious, because he is in opposition to President Obama’s sign, Leo. This is indication that he will do contrary to his nature.

The Sun is conjunct Jupiter, which indicates that the native is intelligent, that he will be well esteemed, dominant, tyrannical, and according to Dorotheus, he will achieve high rank.Mercury is also in the X House, retrograde, but in his own bounds, and Masha’Allah tells us;

“If Mercury were in his own bounds, he will be high, and will have an official position in a place where they write compositions, and he will always be spending his time on a foreign journey. He will never be a pauper, he will have a great name, and he will be a member of the court, and will seek the sciences.”

He definitely started traveling a lot to foreign lands, but being Mercury retrograde, he will lose all that he has accomplished, there will be sudden alterations, he cannot return to his virtues, and since Mercury is under the Sun, it will destroy all that has been accomplished.

Sahl tells us;

“A retrograde planet signifies disobedience and contradiction, and turning back and taking back, and diversity or discord.”

Saturn in Virgo:Saturn is not in a praiseworthy place, since it is in Virgo, retrograde and it is an indication that his administration will be corrupt, and he will be disliked by his own people. When we look at the Libra Ingress chart of 2008, Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is afflicted, conjunct Mars, and this is an indication as to how his administration will be like.

If we took the Part of Fortune, which is in XI House in Piscis, his ruler Jupiter, is combust and in aversion, and according to the ancients, the condition of people during the term of Obama will be weak and will be impotent. The exaltation of Piscis is Venus, but she is contrary to sect, and in opposition to Saturn, and this diminishes the strength of the people. So one can conclude that the people will receive during the initial half of his term, the benefits, and the later half will be malefic to the people.

If we evaluate the Lot of Spirit of the chart of his ascension, we can evaluate the intention of his thoughts, as President. Being in Cancer, its Ruler the Moon is in fall in Escorpio, in VII House of contention, which is indicative that he will be secretive, and he will have no honor in what he does, and his true intentions are corrupt. Mars is in opposition to the Lot of Spirit, which emphasizes his bad intention, and that he will have little advancement and will stay short of his expectation, and he will attract danger towards him.

The hate is quite noted, being the only President to have more than a 400% increase in death threats. The quick lost in popularity, which we have seen in polls has happened short after his first 100 days.

Saturn’s hurled rays are square to the Sun, from the X house, which announces his downfall and provoked by his open enemies who are strong in the VII house.

But here is what I had predicted in December for 2009:

“His Secretary’s will have bad luck and one that is close to him, the one of state, will be obligated to resign. But they will all suffer misfortune and will feel unlucky. [Already a few have resigned], States will reach agreements with their government employees, but the growth of government employees will come to a halt. But we will hear of possible strikes and powerful men who will be against the President."

Everything of prosperity that he seeks for his people will be denied. He will feel that he does not have the power, and this will bring sadness to him, fear, and emotionally weak.

Those who manage the finances will have great difficulty and obstacles. [Geithner has had difficulties].

If we look at President Obama’s Reuolutiones annorum, his Solar Return, which I have posted in my blog, “Obama’s Solar Return” we initially see the following;

“the governorship goes to the fifith planet, which is Mars, and governs the fifth state of the years of the native for fifteen year, according to the lesser years, and during these times, he will have difficult times, and occasionally is body will suffer, and he will have a sad spirit, and his body will feel tired, but he will work hard, and he will commence things which he should abandon, with the intention to make money, and all this will happen before his death”.

Mars, is not strong, in his VIII house in peregrine, in his natal chart.

The Sun distributing to itself and well figured produces brilliant acclamations and actions, alIiances with superiors and those who are greater, and unexpected benefits. And if it should also happen to be with benefics or should be witnessed by them, it introduces greater reputation and benefits. But lesser ones by night, or [the time] will become full of troubles, producing enmities and judgments or dreadful accusations. But if a malefic should also fall with it or testify, it bringson a diminishment of livelihood or reduction of reputation, and precarious travel abroad and enmity of the father, or danger and troubles with things.His Sun is in the VII House, and in a night chart, so we can expect that he will have many troubles and will awaken open enemies, since he has his Saturn in the XII House, and he becomes his worst enemy. He will have a reduction of his reputation and he will travel much during the year, and will be well received in foreign lands, this is because of his year of revolution, since his Sun will be in the House of his joy, and aspecting his Ascendant.

Distribution of the Moon:

“The Moon handing over to Hermes indicates a time that is effectual and easily made right in relation to female persons and alliances, and especially if it should be configured with good stars;.

His Moon is peregrine in the V House and she is found in the II House in his Reuolutiones annorum, in Capricorn, peregrine and in her detriment. And Valens continues to say when the Moon distributes to Hermes;

“..and troubles on account of money or writings or matters of calculation..

His chart clearly has emphasis on money and his reputation concerning money, since Saturn is in his X house of Reuolutiones annorum.

These concerns will commence during the last period of September, in which according to the Libra Ingress, (Imprimatur Stellarum – Libra ), the US economy will not be strong, and we will see the economical situation in the US be much graver.

“When Kronos has distributed to itself, it signifies vexations and inactivity, and enmities and disgraces from superiors or elders, and the native will become subject to hindrances in his applications; or else, if he should do something, it will be unsteady. And if it should also be contemplated by Hermes and Ares, he will suffer vexatious prosecution on account of writings, and judgments and subversion or chicanery concerned with old affairs or those pertaining to death, and treachery, and whatever he will persevere in has the wrath of god; he will become gentler and effective at things by means of slowness”.

Saturn is in his XII, which indicates he is his own enemy, retrograde, and contrary to sect, which means that Saturn is not in a good position. Ares, Mars, is trine to Saturn;

"... And if it should also be contemplated by Hermes and Ares, he will suffer vexatious prosecution on account of writings, and judgments and subversion or chicanery concerned with old affairs or those pertaining to death, and treachery, and whatever he will persevere in has the wrath of god; he will become gentler and effective at things by means of slowness."

Saturn in his X house of his Reuolutiones annorum, according to Ragel, has changed sign and is found in the X house, it means that;

“E para mientes en la Reuolucion del anno: si acaeciere en alguno de lo(s) anglos, significa bien e dignidat, e lo major de los anglos es el medio cielo en esto, que significa que aura Regno o sennorio

And if it should fall in the Revolution of the year, in an angle, it signifies good and dignity, and the best of the angles is the mid-coelum , which means Rulership or power.But Saturn is not strong in his Reuolutiones annorum, so my interpretation that he will retain that power, but will lose popularity and strength among the people. And having his VIII house in the MC, signifies death of his reputation and honor.

I believe, since Mercury is strong in his X house, that he will seek the counsel of a financial person or accountant, or an astrologer.

Everything indicates that his troubles will have to do with the economy of the US, and that we are looking at a much worse scenario than many may expect. I can foretell, that if he continues to pursue the health issue during the month of September, that he will not obtain what he seeks, that the marking of the week of the 28th. of September will be an uphill and most treacherous road to follow.

During the following two month will mark a moment of despair and grief for many Americans who will see their finances plummet and he will be seen as the one who has forsaken their destiny. The government, its laws will be of prejudice to the people, and the people will feel that they have been abandoned by the government.

Higher taxes will add to the rustics grieve; as unemployment continue to reach high marks, I predict that it should reach by year-end a 11% to 12% of unemployment. He will continue to awaken enemies such as those who have out spoken, and their voices will be heard without apologies. And he, will continue to show a lack of character and stance going back on what he promised.

All this was has been far in advances foretold, and it can only be seen as part of his destiny. When we look at the Libra Ingress and what the stars announce in Imprimatur Stellarum;
Dragon Tail in Cancer:

It denotes great mortalities and pestilences, sudden deaths, fornication and little or no justice, reason or honesty amongst men; the destruction of treasuries, and the flitting of great and noble men out of one place into another, also their sad condition and banishment through the works of their own hands, as writing, or some other things signified by the ingenious planet Mercury.
With the economy, it also foretells us;

Economy:

We will continue to see the economy very precarious and people will see their wealth diminish. The Banks will continue to have economical problems, and those that have made big investments, will lose.

We can only hope for the best, but during these times, it is best to embrace family values, and our love ones, to insure we can withstand that which has been written.

Obama’s Solar Return: A Year of Hope and Expansion:


Obama’s Solar Return Ascendant, sets the note as to what his desires and hopes are for the coming year. His Ascendant is in Sagittarius, and it comes from the XI House of Hope and friends, in his natal. So the hope of expansion, and short and rewarding trips will be on his agenda.
His Rulership of Time:

Mars rules his period, from 41 – 56 years of age, and according to Ali Aben Ragel;

E despues d’esto passa el gouierno a la V planeta, que es Mars, e gouiern(a) el V estado en los annos e es estado uaron complido e gouierna el nacid XV annos segund la de sus annos menores propios e contece-l en este tiempo durezas en su vito e ocasiones en el cuerpo e tristezas en el spiritu e comienca el cuerpo de abaxar-se e en lo demás aura a trabajar e fazer fechos que aura a larzar e e entremeter-se mucho de acucias por ganar, e lazra en ellos antes que llegue al tiempo de la muerte[1].

Which means;

And after this, (referring to the past paragraph), the governorship goes to the fifith planet, which is Mars, and governs the fifth state of the years of the native for fifteen year, according to the lesser years, and during these times, he will have difficult times, and occasionally is body will suffer, and he will have a sad spirit, and his body will feel tired, but he will work hard, and he will commence things which he should abandon, with the intention to make money, and all this will happen before his death.

Mars, is not strong, in his VIII house in peregrine, in his natal chart.

Distribution of the Sun:

Vittius Valens provides some interesting thoughts about the distribution of the planets. This year the Sun in President’s Obama’s chart distributes to himself, which indicates[2];

“The Sun distributing to itself and well figured produces brilliant acclamations and actions, alIiances with superiors and those who are greater, and unexpected benefits. And if it should also happen to be with benefics or should be witnessed by them, it introduces greater reputation and benefits. But lesser ones by night, or [the time] will become full of troubles, producing enmities and judgments or dreadful accusations. But if a malefic should also fall with it or testify, it bringson a diminishment of livelihood or reduction of reputation, and precarious travel abroad and enmity of the father, or danger and troubles with things”.

His Sun is in the VII House, and in a night chart, so we can expect that he will have many troubles and will awaken open enemies, since he has his Saturn in the XII House, and he becomes his worst enemy. He will have a reduction of his reputation and he will travel much during the year, and will be well received in foreign lands, this is because of his year of revolution, since his Sun will be in the House of his joy, and aspecting his Ascendant.

Distribution of the Moon:

“The Moon handing over to Hermes indicates a time that is effectual and easily made right in relation to female persons and alliances, and especially if it should be configured with good stars;.[3]”.

His Moon is peregrine in the V House and she is found in the II House in his Reuolutiones annorum, in Capricorn, peregrine and in her detriment. And Valens continues to say when the Moon distributes to Hermes;

“..and troubles on account of money or writings or matters of calculation..[4]

His chart clearly has emphasis on money and his reputation concerning money, since Saturn is in his X house of Reuolutiones annorum. These concerns will commence during the last period of September, in which according to the Libra Ingress, (Imprimatur Stellarum – Libra ), the US economy will not be strong, and we will see the economical situation in the US be much graver.

“When Kronos has distributed to itself, it signifies vexations and inactivity, and enmities and disgraces from superiors or elders, and the native will become subject to hindrances in his applications; or else, if he should do something, it will be unsteady. And if it should also be contemplated by Hermes and Ares, he will suffer vexatious prosecution on account of writings, and judgments and subversion or chicanery concerned with old affairs or those pertaining to death, and treachery, and whatever he will persevere in has the wrath of god; he will become gentler and effective at things by means of slowness[5]”.

Saturn is in his XII, which indicates he is his own enemy, retrograde, and contrary to sect, which means that Saturn is not in a good position. Ares, Mars, is trine to Saturn;

"... And if it should also be contemplated by Hermes and Ares, he will suffer vexatious prosecution on account of writings, and judgments and subversion or chicanery concerned with old affairs or those pertaining to death, and treachery, and whatever he will persevere in has the wrath of god; he will become gentler and effective at things by means of slowness."

Saturn in his X house of his Reuolutiones annorum, according to Ragel, has changed sign and is found in the X house, it means that;

“E para mientes en la Reuolucion del anno: si acaeciere en alguno de lo(s) anglos, significa bien e dignidat, e lo major de los anglos es el medio cielo en esto, que significa que aura Regno o sennorio[6].”

And if it should fall in the Revolution of the year, in an angle, it signifies good and dignity, and the best of the angles is the mid-coelum , which means Rulership or power.

But Saturn is not strong in his Reuolutiones annorum, so my interpretation that he will retain that power, but will lose popularity and strength among the people. And having his VIII house in the MC, signifies death of his reputation and honor. I believe, since Mercury is strong in his X house, that he will seek the counsel of a financial person or accountant, or an astrologer.

Profected Year:

He commences his profected year in the Ascendant, which is in Aquarius, and Saturn is the Ruler of the Year in the XII cadent, retrograde and contrary to sect.

So what does Ali Aben Ragel has to say about the dominant planet, (acelcadonj) , or the Ruler of the Year;

“E sy fuere en estos logares estanno(s) mas que sea Recebido, andara carreras luengas e aura en ellas bien[7].”

And if he were (Saturn), in strange places, and receiving the aspect of another, he will make long travel and will receive benefits from it.

Mars is joined to him, but he is not in a good position, so he will not achieve the benefits, during his travel, that entire year.

Firdarias:

The Presidents Firdarias this year is under the Sun/Mars, and according to Ali Aben Ragel;

“E sy la nacencia fuere nocturna, significa que se camiara de vn estado en otro e de vna maestria en otra e andara carreras e lazrara lazerias fuertes e aura grand sabor e grand cobdicia de mugeres e de fornicios e acaecer-l’a(n) por ellos e fara tuertos a omnes e aura pleitos con omnes e acaecara-l’an pesares por esto e por pleytis e acaecara-l’a taiadura de fiero o mordeduras de can o de otro uestiglo e enfermera e quica su enfermedat será XIX días non mas[8].”

And if he were born at night, this signifies that he will change from one situation to another, and he will change magistrate, and he will travel, and he will work hard, and will be disciplined and desire for women, and to fornicate and sickness will come to him, and he will be hostile to men, and it will cause heaviness and because of this they will seek to harm, and will be cut by iron, o bitten by a dog or from another animal, and he will become sick and his sickness will last 19 days.

From Bob Hands translation we have;

"But if the nativity is nocturnal, the native will be changed from one state to another and from one magistery to another; he will make journeys and will be pained by various hardships; he will do injustice to men and he will have quarrels with them; because of this troubles will happen to him, [as well as] the cut of a sword, the bite of a dog or other animal; or he will be made infirm for a space of 9, 15, or 19 days, after which he will recover."

If he were to get sick, this would happen somewhere in November, but I would not be surprised if he is limping or having problems with his leg. We may also hear that his digestive system is not well during the month of March. If he is bitten, it may happen because of his dog. Throughout the year, he will have an excellent bill of health, some minor problems we most likely will not here of, such as some bile problems, and upper shoulder or back problems. Nevertheless, he will be well in health.

Reuolutiones annorum:

Ali Aben Ragel VI Book has extremely interesting treatise on the Revolution of the Year, which provides some insights as to how the native will be during his year.

For example he addresses Mars;

“E acaeciere Mars en el mismo signo o en su catamiento de cuadratura o de opposicion, significa miedo grande e feridas e llagas e danno de taiamiento o de fiebre o de quemaduras de fuego, mayor mientre si fuere en esto en aglo o en succedente, e quica significa carreras medrosas e peligrosas.[9]

And if you should find Mars in the same sign or in orientation to his sign by square or opposition, it signifies that he will have big fears, falls, wounds, scars, and hurt by fever, or burn, and this would be more so if Mars was in an angle or succedent, and he will fear travel and danger.

Mars in his Reuolutiones annorum, is in an angle, and see’s his “original” house Virgo in the X. So open enemies will want him out of the White House, and will seek to harm the President during his term. Most likely we will hear for more attempts against his life. And it applies a square aspect to Saturn, in the X, which we find trine to his natal chart. Therefore, they both continue to see each other in the Reuolutiones annorum.

Ali Aben Ragel addresses peregrine planets and he tells us to look at the origin of that planet in the natives house, and see where it falls in the Reuolutiones annorum, of his yearly profection. In other words, if his annual profection has a peregrine planet in it, look then to the Reuolutiones annorum, and see were it falls, and this is just as important as the Ascendant itself.

President Obama’s Moon and Mars are both peregrine, in the V and VIII house, respectively, but it does not fall in his profected year.

When Planets fall in the same house of another planet:

I find that Ali Aben Ragel is quite extensive in his explanation as to what happens when a planet falls into the house of another planet in the Reuolutiones annorum,and I also find interesting, as you have seen in my analisis of “The Ascension of a Ruler,” that Mars is badly afflicted in his natal chart and is trine Saturn. And this year, Saturn is in the house of Mars. So what does Ragel have to say about this:

“E quando llegare Saturno en la Reulucion al logar en que Mars en la rayz, e ouiere en la rayz o en la reuolucion algunos de los testimonios que deximos, significa que el nacido andara carre(r)as e aura mester a sus hermanos e a sus amigos e aura d’ellos e non acertara en sus conseios e fazer-sel’ an sus fechos a duro e danna-se su ley e su creencia e su uoluntad e diran de’el mal por esta parte[10].”

And when Saturn arrives in the Reuolutiones annorum, at the place of Mars, and he has testimony over the things we’ve said, it means that he will travel much, and it will be favorable for his siblings and friends and he will benefit from them, and they will follow is counsel , because their business will do well, and he will be frivolous, and they will speak badly of him.

Jupiter:

“E quando Iupiter llegare en la reuolucion al su logar mismo en que fue en rayz, renueua e aduze el bien que auia segund en la rayz e aura auer e ganancias de logares que non sospechua nin en aui(a) fiyuza[11].”

And when Jupiter arrives during the Reuolutiones annorum, in the same place from where it originated, it renews and confirms the goodness which it has in its origins, and it brings riches and gains which he does not expect.

Dorotheus of Sidon[12] tells us;

“Jupiter in the house of Saturn, he will be wealthy, and for this no praise or honor will be known, and his secret affairs will not be looked into, bu he will lie in easy circumstances and will not be according to the extant to the extant of his condition, and with this he will be charming in foregiveness and will not stretch out his neck to power and praise and will not consider it, but tribultaions will come to him in time[13].”

Jupiter is in Aquarius in the Ascendant, and in his Reuolutiones annorum, falls in the III House, the house of communication under the terms of Mars who is in Gemini. He will not be honest with the public, but this will have its consequences in the future.

Mars:

“..e si el testimonio ouiere Mars en ues d’ella, hara carreras e pechara por razón de su campann o por razón de mugeres. E sy algún sennorio quiere, danna-se[14].”

And if there was testimony in that place, he will have short travels, mptivated by his community or for a women, and if he has some power, the same will be diminished.

He will receive more opposition by his party and it will be more difficult for him to get what he wants. He will continue to travel.

Venus:

“E quando Uenus llegare en la reuolucion al su logar mismo en que fue en la rayz e ouiere poder e testimonio en el anno, puiara en ualia e en prez e llegara a sennorio e renouar-s’’ an las cosas que signific en la rayz, e puiara en companna e en criazón e en vestidos e en ropas[15].”

And when Venus arrives during the revolution in the same place it originated, and has testimony for the year, his esteem will increase and self worth, and he will achieve power and he will renew those thing which was in his chart originally.

Venus in the terms of Mars and in Cancer signifies lewdness and fickle passions. But he may also be changing his position about employees, or addressing topics about job lost, this will happen during the month of January or March.

Mercury:

E quando Mercurios llegare en la reuolucion del anno al logar en que fue Mars en la rayz e amos ouieran testimonio en el anno, significa que aquel nacido annascara mentiras e falsedades e dira cosas que non fuemos nin acaecieron[16].

And when Mercury arrives in the revolution of the year in the same place that Mars was in, and both have testimony in that year, it signifies that the native will say lies and false things, and will affirm to things that have never happened.

Those he promised to help, associates or other countries will hear excuses and reasons as to why they have been unable to fulfill their expectations. He will present himself well, truthful and honest, but he will be deceitful.

Moon:

“e sy fuere con esto infortunada, acaecer-l’an pleitos de que se enbargara, e su con el infortunamiento que ouiere..[17],”

And if she were unfortunate, it will bring hardship, which will impede his work.

The hardship will come to the people and the economical restraints that they will have, and this will be in great deal to the decisions he has made. The Moon in the II house, confirms that much will have to do with the economy.

Overall Review:

Some of his decisions will not be well received by his wife, and she will not agree with issues pertaining to the children. Most likely it will be she who will have back problems or the upper shoulders. It will not be a good year for him, what he will try to achieve during his travel will not be met.

He will continue to lose popularity among the people, but will continue to communicate effectively throughout the year, but people will no longer believe in his word. This year he will receive a lot of threats, but he safe from all danger, but his enemies are many and he should be careful of the near future. His biggest hurdle..., the economy, especially at the end of September and beginning of October. The economy should get far worst than what we have seen.

The Chronicle of a Future Announced - The Ascension of Obama:

This article was originally written in Spanish, January 26, 2009 in Interpres Stellarum blog, which is intended more of a newsletter for my clients who subscribe to Interpres Stellarum. The original title is called “La Crónica de un Futuro Anunciado,” or The Chronicle of a Future, Announced I have added in this essay, The Ascension of Obama.

I believe that this is but a short delineation of what can be expressed as to how the presidency will be seen. I am sure, there are many out there that have much more to say about this particular chart.


I have added some new information, but I want to thank my friend Steven Birchfield, which without his guidance, I would not have completed this discourse. Any errors are my responsibility.

So here, I begin my discourse, on the Ascension of Obama


The Ascension of President Barack Obama attracted a great amount of people than any other Presidential ascension. The atmosphere was loaded with emotion, joy and enthusiasm, for several obvious reasons. First, the first Afro-American that obtains the presidency of the United States, which brings us to a second point, the hope that the racial situation is going to change and that these changes incorporate greater social justice for the different ethnic and social classes.

Third, an economic change that will put the United States in the correct economical course and stoping the increasing wave of unemployment, which at this moment harms the American nation.

And, and not less important, the relation of the United States with other nations.

Never in the history of the United States has so much hope, been put in a single man, as we have seen in President Barack Obama. The entire world, in its majority, is hopeful, that President Obama will achieve all that he has promised.

It is interesting to note, that diverse divinatory practices, such as, Santería, Espiritismo, and many astrologers, have also expressed that this is the year, and that certainly, Obama will bring the wished changes. However, will he bring those changes?

This essay, from an astrological point of view, has the intention to evaluate the ascent of President Obama, and reveal, what I understand is, indicated in the stars. In addition, I will make an analysis of various Presidents and will try to prove that the calculations made are accurate.

For President Obama, I will use various Ingress Charts, his Solar Returns and his Ascension Chart to determine his length in power. You could also visit my various predictions here in Imprimatur Stellarum.

I would like to clarify, that I am using only traditional methods, my astrological delineation, are based, solely on traditional studies that date from II Century AC., until XIII Century, medieval time. I do not use modern methods to reach the conclusion at which I arrive.
The Ascent of Barack Obama:
President Obama, oath was at 12:00 p.m. in Washington DC. Although he had to return to administer another oath, the Constitution of the United States says that the elected President will take power after the 20 of January, at 12:00 p.m. Therefore, the second oath, is not really taken into consideration, since the constitution makes way to his ascension.

His Ascendant is Taurus and his MC Aquarius both in a fixed sign, and according to Sahl, he says;

“And if the benefics aspected the Sun, and you found the Lord of the Ascendant, and the Sun in optimal place from the Ascendant, and he, were in a fixed sign, his principate will be prolonged, and he will see what he wants in it.[1]

Venus is in the XI House is in an optimal place, but contrary to sect and in opposition to Saturn, and the Sun is in the X, but not strong, so we can say that he will partially achieve his goals and that his principate will not be prolonged. The Ascending sign is in a fixed sign, Venus is in her exaltation, but she losses her strength, because it is contrary to her sect, She is also in opposition to Saturn, that is very malefic. So we can judge the following;

· The First House represents the people, therefore their expectations are high, but being contrary to its sect, the people find themselves losing hope, or at least, not all is fulfilled.
· The Moon is also significator of the people, and she is in Scorpio, which is indication that the people will suffer affliction, and there will be no regard to justice or truth. There will be much anger, bitterness, and contention. Agrippa tells us that nothing should commence under a bad Moon, the Moon is peregrine, in her fall and Void of Course. But she is also decreasing in light, and Firmicus Maternus[2] tells us that those who have wanning Moon will lose what they have accomplished in life.
· The Moon always is the significador of rustics, and it is in its fall, in the sign of Scorpio, and this is indicative that people will be in a bad state, we will see increase in taxes, and a lot of contention.

Sahl also indicates that there are eight defects or bad indications for the Moon, and one of them are;

· Second, if the Moon is in the degree of its downfall, (which is Scorpio)…, and continues to add.., These are the aforesaid defects of the Moon and her impediments, under which no work should be undertaken, (that is, while the Moon is so, any work should not be begun nor praised in a nativity nor in foreign travel).[3]

· Saturn is in opposition to Venus and he is retrograde, and Saturn rules the X house, which represents the “King” or in this case, the President, and he moves away from the promises made to the people. The President will bring bad news to the people.

And Masha’allah also tells us that if the significator of the king is retrograde;

· “they signify the loss and weakness of the king and of the citizens of that same kingdom[4]

In the X House we have the Sun, which is also the significator of the President in Mundane Astrology, and he is placed in the figure of Aquarius, his detriment, and it is curious, because he is in opposition to President Obama’s sign, Leo. This is indication that he will do contrary to his nature. The Sun is conjunct Jupiter, which indicates that the native is intelligent, that he will be well esteemed, dominant, tyrannical, and according to Dorotheus, he will achieve high rank.
Mercury is also in the X House, retrograde, but in his own bounds, and Masha’Allah tells us;

“If Mercury were in his own bounds, he will be high, and will have an official position in a place where they write compositions, and he will always be spending his time on a foreign journey. He will never be a pauper, he will have a great name, and he will be a member of the court, and will seek the sciences.”

He definitely started traveling a lot to foreign lands, but being Mercury retrograde, he will lose all that he has accomplished, there will be sudden alterations, he cannot return to his virtues, and since Mercury is under the Sun, it will destroy all that has been accomplished.

Sahl tells us;

“A retrograde planet signifies disobedience and contradiction, and turning back and taking back, and diversity or discord. [5]

Saturn in Virgo:Saturn is not in a praiseworthy place, since it is in Virgo, retrograde and it is an indication that his administration will be corrupt, and he will be disliked by his own people. When we look at the Libra Ingress chart of 2008, Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is afflicted, conjunct Mars, and this is an indication as to how his administration will be like.

If we took the Part of Fortune, which is in XI House in Piscis, his ruler Jupiter, is combust and in aversion, and according to the ancients, the condition of people during the term of Obama will be weak and will be impotent. The exaltation of Piscis is Venus, but she is contrary to sect, and in opposition to Saturn, and this diminishes the strength of the people. So one can conclude that the people will receive during the initial half of his term, the benefits, and the later half will be malefic to the people.

If we evaluate the Lot of Spirit of the chart of his ascension, we can evaluate the intention of his thoughts, as President. Being in Cancer, its Ruler the Moon is in fall in Escorpio, in VII House of contention, which is indicative that he will be secretive, and he will have no honor in what he does, and his true intentions are corrupt. Mars is in opposition to the Lot of Spirit, which emphasizes his bad intention, and that he will have little advancement and will stay short of his expectation, and he will attract danger towards him.

But there is much more, if you wish, just look at the 2009 Astrological Predictions for the US

Obama’s Chart:

Its year of profection is in House XII, and although Saturn is in Capricorn, it is contrary to his sect and it is retrograde, but this is an indication that he will be well known and will be put like king. The subjects that stand out during this cycle have to do with confinement, jails, hospitals, and hidden managements. We have seen as the subject of Guantánamo has been one of the first objectives that he has made, but: What happening with Guantánamo?

Mars is in the VIII House, Virgo, which makes Mars more hostile and it is interesting to note that calculating the years of progression, in two years, Mars will be in the terms of Saturn, and according to Masha allah;

“. , and poison or toxin will be toasted to him.., and he will find a lawsuit in his old age; and he will go to places from which malice will arise.. ,[6]

Sahl also gives us indication of a malefic in the VIII House:

“and if a malefic were in the same place (VIII House), their evil will be mde much greater.[7]

This will happen when he becomes 50 years age, that is in 2011, when he is still President. It has also caught my attention that in his natal chart, Saturn is in Capricorn in the XII, trine Mars in Virgo in the VIII house, and in his ascension chart we have Saturn in Virgo in the V house trine Mars in Capricorn in the IX house. In both charts, Saturn is retrograde.

Ali Aben Ragel in his “Complete Book on the Judgements of the Stars[8] tells us how to determine the length of his reign;

“Quando quisieres saber el aturamejento del que Regna, toma del sennor de la exaltacion de la parte de la fortuna fasta la parte mjsma, e lo que oujer entre ellos, da a cada signo unn dia i unn mes o unn anno.[9]

“When you want to determine the duration of he who will reign, take the ruler of his exaltation of the Part of Fortune, to the same part, and calculate what is between them, and give to each figure a day, or a month, or a year.”

This particular explanation is not written anywhere else, such as, Abu Masar’s work or Masha’allah nor Bonatti. So one is hesitant to apply this technique. But when I looked at John F. Kennedy’s ascension[10] this is what we have;

The Part of Fortune is in Cancer 6 degress and 24 minutes, his exaltation Lord is Jupiter, which is in 18 degrees Capricorn and 40 minutes. This gives us 170 degrees. Ali Aben Ragel tells us to use a day, a month or a year. There is no mention of weeks, so do we assume that weeks are not used, or was it a mistake in the translation or an oversight. If we look at the distance between one sign and another, we are either looking at 6 days, 6 month, or 6 years.

Well, we know it was much more than that. So I apply weeks to each degrees, and I come up with 170 weeks, his length of Presidency. He was assassinated in 148 weeks of his ascension.

Note: POF is afflicted in his ascension chart, conjunct Mars, and Mars is in his VIII House natal, but POF is also in opposition by figure with Saturn and Jupiter.

Looking at his natal chart and the Ingress chart for 1963 we find some interesting aspects. His Mars is in the VIII of his natal chart, and the Moon is trine from the XII House, both Mars and Moon are contrary to its sect, and Mars is conjunct Mercury, and Vittius Valens tells us about the conjunction;

“it produces enemies, accusations, opposition, and treason”

But Sahl also remains us that evil will be made much greater, and Mars being in Taurus, in his detriment, Masha’allah reminds us that malice will arise. Mars falls into the VII House of open enemies in the Ingress chart of 1963, and afflicts the Ascendant and the Moon by opposition.

Mashá . allah tells us about the luminaries representing the king, the Sun by day and the Moon by night, the Ingress is a nocturnal chart and the Moon is afflicted by Mars by opposition.

So, is this sufficient proof? Well let us look at Jimmy Carter’s ascension;

He was sworn on January 20, 1977 and his Part of Fortune is in Taurus 28 degrees and 11 minutes, his Lord of exaltation is the Moon, which is in 15 degrees Aquarius and 00 minutes, which gives me a total of 96 degrees, and POF is 4 figures away. President Carter was only President for 4 years or 4 figures.

Note: His POF is not afflicted

Ronald Reagan:

Sworn in on January 20, 1981 and his Part of Fortune is in 18 degrees Scorpio 35,he has no Lord of exaltation but his ruler is Mars, and Mars is in 16 degrees Aquarius 21 minutes. He is four figures away. His first term was 4 years.

Note: During his first term there was an assassination attempt, March 30,1981, his POF was afflicted by Mars, square separating. POF is in the bounds of Mercury and is conjunct Mars. Luminaries are afflicted in the Ingress Chart 1981, Mars is conjunct Sun in Aries, and Moon is conjunct Saturn in Libra. Jupiter is besieged by Saturn in it exaltation and by the Moon. Was this the planet that saved his life? Was it the omen forecasted by the “astrologer” that he should have a precautious year?

George H. W. Bush:
Was sworn in on January 20, 1989, and his Part of Fortune is in 29 degrees Libra and 58 minutes, and his Lord of Exaltation is Saturn. His POF is four figures away from his Exaltation Ruler, Saturn, his term was only 4 years.

Note: POF is not afflicted, but is cadent, and in the bounds of Mars, his administration was known to have commenced the Panama war, and the Persian Gulf War.

Bill Clinton:

Was sworn in January 20, 1993, and his Part of Fortune is in 20 degrees Aries 38 minutes, his Lord of Exaltation is the Sun, and he is in 00 degrees Aquarius 39 minutes, and they are 3 figures away. His first term was 4 years, but we can apply the (+ / - ) 3 degree rule, and we would have 4 figures away.

Note: His POF is not afflicted, but it is interesting to note that his Mars in his Ascension chart is in the III House, in Cancer, and during his first term, he had the Travelgate controversy, which is the III House signification.

Obama Ascension:

He was sworn in on January 20, 2009, and his Part of Fortune is in 14 degrees Pisces and 46 minutes, his Lord of Exaltation is Venus, and she is in 17 degrees Pisces and 47 minutes. They are only 3 degrees apart. Ali Aben Ragel tells us;

“When you want to determine the duration of he who will reign, take the ruler of his exaltation of the Part of Fortune, to the same part, and calculate what is between them, and give to each figure a day, or a month, or a year.”

Three degrees would give us either 3 days, 3 month or three years. Well in April, during Obama while Obama was still in France a Syrian man with fake press credentials was arrested in Turkey for attempts to plan an assassination. This was exactly 3 month after the inaugural.

If we apply three years, we would find the following;

When looking at his progressd Mars is in the VIII House, Virgo, which makes Mars more hostile, it is interesting to note that in two years, Mars will be in the terms of Saturn, and according to Masha allah;

“. , and poison or toxin will be toasted to him.., and he will find a lawsuit in his old age; and he will go to places from which malice will arise.. ,[11]

Sahl also gives us indication of a malefic in the VIII House:

“and if a malefic were in the same place (VIII House), their evil will be made much greater.[12]

According to Firmicus Maternus;

“Mars in House VIII at night the native one will be intelligent, ready, and surrounded in many dangers. They will be surrounded in public activities, but it will undergo a violent death, or a sudden death..,[13]

His profected year will be Mars, and his VIII House will be ruled by Mars, and Mars in his chart is his Killing Planet.

When we look at the Solar Return of that year, 2011;

His Ascendant in his natal chart is Aquarius and it will move to his VIII house of death, Firmicus calls it the “Gates of Hell” the “Unfortunate House,” since no planet rejoices in it except for the Moon in a nocturnal chart. His VI House is in the Ascendant of his Solar Return, informaties and also known as the “Temple of ill-omen” by Manilus, the house of “bad fortune.”

And his Mars, which is in the VIII house of his natal, is now in the Ascendant of his Solar Return, in Cancer. Mercury, which was in the VII House of open enemies, is now aspecting Mars in sextil by the III house in his Solar Return. But we also have Saturn which is square to Mars by figure, and they will apply before each leaves their figure in the chart in there Solar Return. Concern of a family member will arise during this year.

Another interesting point during his profected year according to Vittius Valens[14] is what he mentions during the distribution of the year;

“If the Horoskopos should give over to a malefic, it produces the worst time, especially to Kronos by night and Ares by day; for it brings on bodily dangers and irregularities of life, fears and very troublesome accusations, falls and injuries.”

His firdarias for 2011 will be Venus/Mercury and it is a nocturnal chart;

“But if his nativity is nocturnal, he will spend much of that which he had managed; he will be overcome by his enemies, they will tread him under foot, and he will flee from them; many troubles will happen to him, and illnesses in his body because of bad food or digestion.”

Ingress Chart 2011:

Masha’allah has some interesting indication about the king, (President), and he speaks about when the significator of the king is going to be combust. In the Ingress Chart of 2011, there are two possible significator of the king, one would be the Moon, which has testimony with the Lord of the Year, but foes not have testimony with the Sun nor the MC. We then look at Jupiter, and Jupiter has testimony with the Luminaries, in this case the Moon, and he also has testimony with the Lord of the Year, Saturn. Jupiter will go combust, and according to Masha’allah;

“If the significator of the king is going combust in the revolution of the year, the king of that region will die in the same year.[15]

But even if we were to take the luminaries as significator of the king, and since the chart is nocturnal, the Moon is conjunct Saturn, and the Moon is Lord of the X house, the king.
Saturn also aspects the significator of the king, Jupiter, by opposition, and Masha’allah also indicates the following;

“Therefore, look at the hour of that signification from the time of the significator and the malefic. And likewise, if a malefic aspected the significator of the king from opposition or the square, or from the conjunction, it will be feared concerning him..,”

Who are is enemies?

Masha’allah has some very interesting pointers;

“Look at the malefic who aspects the significator of the king. If it aspected him from out of the sign in which the king had testimony, the enemy will be from his land..,”

Jupiter has no testimony with Libra, for she is in opposition in Aries.

The opposition signifies enemies, who have rich lands, buildings, stock market or large investments and are looking after their own interest.

Conclusion:

In the case of President Barack Obama, if we use the rules that Abu Masar provides us with, in his “On Historical Astrology,” he says we must watch the moment of ascent of President Obama, and as Saturn is Eastern of the Sun, we add the degrees of Saturn to the Sun and added the degrees of the Sun to Jupiter. A year for each 30 degrees occurs, which gives about 133 degrees in total. Since Jupiter is afflicted, we divide the result between two, and it approximately gives about to 2 years and 3 month.
It is a year in which precaution should be taken, between the mid 2011 and April of 2012.

My intention of this discourse is to apply traditional methods that will help validate our studies in the art of predicitions. By no means am I predicting or do I want his death, God protect him, but to delineate the course of the following years in his life, and that he may be careful in his intentions and actions.

Lunar and Solar Eclipse July 2009

Those studious of the art, will apply the operation of the elements of the stars accordingly, and will be able to foretell the events that are about to happen in the future. I am, but a neophyte in astrology, still eagerly learning the application of the wondrous science.

Others may be impervious of the teaching of the wise, but why must we attempt to redefine this knowledge if we have yet to comprehend what has been left to us.


Albertus Magnus once said;

“Nos habemus unam Scientiam Mathematicam, que docet nos in rerum causis causationem causarum considerare.” – We have one Mathematical Science, which teaches us to consider the causation of causes, in the causes of things.[1]

These causes have already been defined, and yet I am sure, there is still more information which we have yet to reveal. But we must attempt to apply what we do have, and if we fail, just try again.

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse:

On July 7th., there will be a Lunar Eclipse which will not be seen, its magnitude is just 0.156, and this will occur just above the horizon of Canada. The Lunar eclipse will occur under the sign of Capricorn, and according to William Ramesey;

“In the second, frequent incursions and assaults of souldiers, thefts, roberies,and captivities .”

But Capricorn also rules, according to Masha’allah[2]; The South.

According to Kusyar Ibn Labban[3]: The East and South.

Kusyar Ibn Labban also goes on and says that its countries are;

"India, Ethiopia, Makran, Sind toward Multan and toward Oman, al Ahwaz, and the country of Kabul and Ghur."

Capricorn also rules over: India, Chorassan, Circan, Maraccan, Punjab, Afghanistan, Thrace, Macedonia, Morea, Illyria, Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Greece, Hesse, S.W. Saxony, Styria, Romandiola, Mecklenberg, Mexico, Lithuania, Orkney Islands[4].

The Lunar Eclipse should not have a direct effect on the US, but it is interesting to note that it falls on the MC of the 2009 Ingress Chart, and Saturn is in the VI House.

I believe that we will see a considerable loss of jobs, or issues pertaining to jobs or health will arise considerably.

The incursion of soldiers or a rise in criminal acts can be expected in these regions.

The Moon is conjunct Vega; Public disgrace, probably through forgery, loss through writings, some ill-health, success in business, gain through an annuity or pension[5].

Since this is falling on the MC, which represents the Prime Minister of Canada, or President Obama, public disgrace may be around the corner, during mid July or are we may be hearing of ill-health during this month.

The Manner of the Event According to the Ruler:

Saturn[6] is the ruler of the Lunar Eclipse, and bestow; Coldness, he declares continued diseases, disturbance of the humours, fluxes, banishment, poverty, miseries, lamentation, vain fevers, scarcity of cattle, foggy weather, thick clouds, much darkness, abundant rain, bitter tempest from the sea, shipwrecks,. Violent inundations and corruption of the waters, on the earth there will be scarcity of grain and fruits.

Timing:

The Lunar Eclipse will last one hour, so we will see the effects within the 14 to the 18 day of having experienced the eclipse.

Total Solar Eclipse:

On July 22, we will have a total Solar Eclipse, which will have a path that extends across India, China, a handful of Japanese islands and the South Pacific Ocean. The Moon passes through perigree several hours earlier, which tends to stimulate earthquakes.

The Solar Eclipse will happen under the sign of Cancer, and William Ramesey tells us;

“In the third, through Armenia and Africa, and the rest of the regions and places subject to Cancer, Hidropical diseases, seditions, and the disease of France, Nalples, Spain and England, and indeed of all the World; yet commonly called the French and Napolitean disease, or more plainly, the French Pox.”

Kusyar Ibn Labban also goes on and says that its countries are;

“Lesser Armenia, China to the east of Khurasan, Marw, Marw al-Rud, the country of Ifriqiya, (Africa), and Byzantium.”

Other countires are[7]; Scotland, Holland, Zealand, N and W. Africa, Isle of Mauritius, Paraguay.
Are we seeing an outbreak of another swine flu, or another type of venereal disease that will take place within the next 2 to 3 years.

Will it come from another animal, since Kusyar Ibn Labban tells us;

“If it is in the signs which have cloven hoofs like Aries, Taurus, and Capricorn, the influence is in cattle and sheep.”

“When an eclipse is in a Tropical or Equinoctial figure, Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn, commonly the Eclipse is prejudicial to the air, and the present season. Tropicals, viz, Cancer and Capricorn, alterations of the air, and of Offices or places or Governments.[8]
Timing:
The Solar Eclipse last about four minutes, so according to the ancients, its 4 years. We should start seeing the effects, during the second year, 2011.

Since both Sun and Moon are in a watery sign (Cancer), we will see much inundation, especially in regions like China, or India. I also believe we will hear of a devastating earthquake in the region, in the next one to three month after the eclipse. 82209

USA Review of Events

What has happen in the last few weeks. Well we did not see the stock market crash, bad prediction on my part, but that happens when you look at the wrong chart.

“We will see the US during this same month reaching out to its enemies, and they will also try to strengthen their relationship with their allies.”

The Chavez handshake and exchange of smiles stirred up some concerns, and bowing to his King of Saudi Arabia, and agreeing to provide nuclear technology, sure lets us see his ties with his allies.

Unemployment will continue to increase, and it will get much worse during the summer until September. We will see long lines of people looking for social help.

Sure enough, unemployment is still on the rise, and no indication that it will slow down.

Let us see what happens with this particular issue under his administration. But GM will go under.

GM bankruptcy would be risky, but looks likely Bondholder deal’s failure, Chrysler’s success seen raising chance of filing

Over the next few weeks, General Motors is expected to reach anothermilestone in its storied 101-year history: bankruptcy.

Well, it has not happened yet…, but I am close to the prediction. But what abou
t this one;

Governors will be obligated to increase tributes, and this will cause anguish and sickness among the people, especially those States that are in a bad situation such as; Puerto Rico, and California.”

This is all we are heaqring throughout the country. And one last prediction made…, I should have looked at Mexicos chart;

Mexico will have a terrible year, women will be the one who will most suffer, and the government will have a hard time communicating with the people. Death of many children, the people will feel abandoned by the government.

This is why I have decided to change the name of the blog page to Imprimatur Stellarum, “So it is written in the stars”.

Pestilence and Famine - A Short Discourse on How to Foretell Events

Are we at the brink of an Apocalypse?

For centuries, man has suffered from pestilence and famine, but nothing has been more devastating than war among men. Far from reaching a point of Apocalypse, and then maybe, not too far, but for other reasons, the subject on pestilence and famine has awakened an interest in many astrologers because of the swine flu in Mexico. Although we may have various ways of approaching, from astrological point of view, we know that the ancient’s sages have written down, how to foretell the arrival of such events.


I am sure many would prefer to think that God has sent down his rage upon man for his sin’s and wickedness behavior, so was the thought of many church goers that need justify what has already been written in the stars.


The swine flu that has occurred in Mexico can be first looked at, by reviewing the 2009 Ingress chart for Mexico City.


Abu Masar tells us when Pisces is in the Ascendant;

“.., and exemplary punishment among the people; that illness comes to them; [1]

Therefore, the initial chart already announces that illness will come to the people of Mexico.



Ali Aben Ragel also mentions when to foretell sickness and epidemics;

“Determine the Ascendant of the Year and the Ascendant of the conjunction or the opposition which is produced prior to the entrance of the Sun in Aries. Then, if these two Ascendants and the Moon were free from malefic and fortunate and the luminaries were oriented to the ruler, or to the luminaries that are the Ruler of time, it means that this year will be free of popular sickness, and other things.

However, if the Ruler of both Ascendants, and the Moon and the Ruler of the conjunction or the opposition, all equally or the major planets are unfavorable, it means that epidemic and death. Moreover, this will be determined according the strength of the unfortunate and according to the nature and the position in which they are found[2].”

The Ascendant of the year is in Pisces, and Jupiter in unfortunate and weak in the XII house. The luminaries; Moon is in the XI house in his sect, but in an earthly sign Capricorn, which is her detriment. The Sun is in his exaltation, in the II house, but he is out of sect, so he loses strength.

The ruler of the Ascendant, Jupiter, nor the ruler of time, Sun, have aspect among them. So we can conclude by looking at the first chart, that they will suffer an epidemic, however, since Jupiter is in his own terms, and in his house, we could conclude that it will not be of major proportion.

Therefore, we then proceed to look at the syzygy Moon, which occurred on March 10, 2009, New Moon in Virgo and the Moon is in conjunction to Saturn, and in opposition to the Sun in Pisces.

Masha Allah tells us about the conjunction of the planets;

“The conjunction of the planets signifies the accidents of this world and its matters, which are thus to be considered at the time of the higher and lower planets…,

If however they were conjoined in feminine signs, they will signify pestilence and of the death of animals
[3]..,”

The Ruler of the Ascendant is Libra, Venus is in the VII house, Aries, and in opposition to the Ascendant. He does not aspect the luminaries, once again, announcing the epidemic and death among the people.

It is interesting to note that the signs of the swine flu are; similar to that of the regular flu, including fever [Venus in Aries], (usually over 38.5 degrees C or 101 degrees F), runny or stuffy nose, cough, sore throat, aching body, headache, chills, fatigue, diarrhea, [Moon and Saturn in Virgo] and vomiting.

The Outbreak of the Swine Flu:

We already know that the outbreak was reported late march[4], according to various sources. Can we determine the outbreak astrologically?

Yes, when both luminaries became conjunct, the New Moon. This occurred on March 26, 2009, at the end of March when it was reported.

Will this be the worse?

I believe more death will come to the Mexican people, due to bad weather, such as rain and floods during a later part of the year.

The Economical Delusion: G20 Part II



The only function of economic forecasting is to make astrology look respectable. - John Kenneth Galbraith


There is no doubt that President Barack Obama hit center stage. He looked more like a rock star, with a big smile and all. It was the Czechs, who got the worst end of the stick. However, Obama played in well with European leaders and reached a stimulus package which was too hard to resist. Was this foreseen in the US chart? Yes, if we look at the Ingress Chart of the US, we see that the V house is in Leo, the Sun is in its exaltation and in the Ascendant in a full house system, [which I prefer to use], and the V House has to do with, investments and stock exchange.

I don’t like to predict the outcome of something that has already happened, I mean that’s easy, and when in doubt, blame it on Pluto. But let’s try some predictions with what we already have.
We have seen how the stock exchange has reacted these last few days, but; Can it sustain itself with all these “stimulus packages” being offered? Well it continues to improve? I believe not, and this is where I see an economical delusion with major epic proportions.

I believe we will see a downturn, or stock crash sometime between April 12 through the 17th. This will happen because the people simply are not spending, there is no income coming in, there is no financial flow. On the other hand we will see a US much more aggressive in trying to avoid further foreclosures during the month of April. We will see the US during this same month reaching out to its enemies, and they will also try to strengthen their relationship with their allies. But to no achievement, they simply will not be able to convince others of their intentions.
As far as my predictions go, I said;

The Lunar Eclipse of February, will bring strike and protest among the people, especially in Europe and other nations during the probable month of February through June.

France was under fire during this particular month.

The Nation will feel insecure, instability and scarcity. There will be much uncertainty and prejudice among the famous and important people. We will also see scarcity of food, and all this will be seen during the beginng of March. The people will lack happiness, ill fortune and sadness will supervene the people.

No doubt here how the people have felt during these past days.

Those who have important positions will be in fear of losing it and will lose it.

GM and AIG are excellent examples of this.

Unemployment will continue to increase, and it will get much worse during the summer until September. We will see long lines of people looking for social help.

We see that unemployment continues to increase and I predict we will hit a 12% during the summer and Puerto Rico will hit an 18% to 20% by this summer.

The automobile industry will be his biggest challenge, and how to increase jobs to stimulate the economy, but only in the automobile sector will this be achieved.

Let us see what happens with this particular issue under his administration. But GM will go under.

April he will want to travel abroad and seek agreements.

G20 meeting and other travel to European Nations such as Turkey is to seek some agreements, especially support with Afghanistan.

Arrange for the upcoming May through September period, which will be apparently hard and difficult.
