Astrology of September 11
September 11, 2008
always easier to look backwards and find astrological correlations
to major events than it is to predict specific events using
astrology. Only astrologer Lynne Palmer predicted the attacks
of September 11, although other
astrologers did note that this period would be a stressful
time for the US.
the day of the attacks, transiting Pluto was within seventeen
minutes of an exact conjunction to the US ascendant at 12 degrees
Sagittarius. Astrologers had worried for months about the opposition
of Saturn to Pluto that was in effect at that time, and Pluto,
which had been traveling retrograde, turned direct on August 25th
within 11 minutes of the US ascendant. When planets change direction
in a close aspect to one of our planets, the effect is extremely
and Pluto are both Lords of Death with Saturn having played that
role in the early days of astrology before Pluto was discovered.
Modern astrologers don't find Saturn as evil as the more traditional
astrologers do, but the stress between the restriction of Saturn
and the transformative power of Pluto can be difficult at best.
With these two facing off and Pluto sitting right on the ascendant,
the face of American life and politics (ascendant) were irrevocably
changed (Pluto) that day.
this Pluto cycle actually began on November 25, 2000 when Pluto
first crossed the US ascendant - the week of September 11 was
the second phase of this cycle. During that week in November 2000,
the Florida recount began that would be the first phase of the
lawsuits that resulted in George Bush being appointed President.
seems likely to me that the events surrounding the 2000 election
in the first phase of Pluto crossing the US ascendant undermined
the structures that formed the very fabric of the country to the
point where it was vulnerable to attack when Pluto came around
the second time and sat right on the US ascendant for a month
or more. .
that time Mars in the US chart has turned retrograde (back in
2007), signifying for many astrologers a weakening in the formerly
powerful military might of the country. Transiting Pluto last
spring began a square to the Midheaven (the government) of the
US chart that will return in early 2009 when Pluto returns to
Lerner points out that Mercury was sitting right on the ascendant
of the chart of the first World Trade Center attack in NYC, exactly
conjunct the US Saturn. Mark writes, "And when this first
plane hit -- remember Mercury had winged sandals and was the "Messenger
of the Gods," symbolizing this jet in the sky -- it would
set off a chain reaction that would throw our entire nation into
extreme fear (Saturn). In fact, for the first time in American
history, this event, followed by the other plane hijackings and
crashes, would close all American airports."
is the clearest vision we possess. But on this day when we honor
those who gave their life on the day that transformed American
politics forever, I believe it is our duty to stay informed and
work like hell in our communities to bring American life back
