A Big Shift for the United States

Mundane astrology is the study of world events (mundus in ancient Greek means world) by examining the horoscopes of nations and events as if those entities were living and breathing beings, with personalities and characteristics just like humans. I confess that this branch of astrology has never held much meaning for me — my field of interest is in the evolution of the human spirit and character. But there is a lot of buzz right now about one specific event that is getting ready to occur: the change of direction of the Progressed Mars in the chart of the United States.

The date and time of birth of the American nation has been a matter of debate for centuries now. Most astrologers use the “Sibley” chart for the US, named after Ebenezer Sibley, a prominent American astrologer in the late 1700s. According to Benson Bobrick’s excellent work The Fated Sky, Sibley a Freemason was well practiced in the field of mundane astrology, known for his accurate political predictions regarding both the American and French revolutions. Sibley also predicted that America would one day “have an extensive an dflourishing commerce; advantageous and universal traffic to every quarter of the globe, with great security and prosperity amongst its people,” and eventually be “a new Empire that shall soon or late give laws to the whole world. ” This is rather startling considering the fact that Masonic historian Manly P Hall has reported that the US has a secret destiny: “Thousands of years ago, in Egypt, these mystical orders were aware of the existence of the western hemisphere and the great continent which we call America. The bold resolution was made that this western continent should become the site of the philosophic empire. Just when this was done […]

Who is This Guy That’s Running Iran????

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is no mere radical fundamentalist – he is extremely well-educated with a master’s degree in engineering and a Ph.D. in traffic transportation planning. In 1975 he ranked 130th in the nationwide university entrance exams. Prior to being elected president, he was Mayor of Tehran where he reversed many of the reforms instituted by the previous more moderate administration. He was elected President as the protege of Ayatollah Khamenei, Supreme Leader (constitutionally elected religious leader) of Iran.

Ahmadinejad is a populist president, with a goal of using Iran’s oil money to help the poor in his country. During his campaign he spoke out openly against both the United States and the United Nations, and since his election has created a furor with his openly aggressive stance towards Israel which includes denying the holocaust. In addition, he has forged new and stronger relations with Russia and is increasingly aggressive about what he terms the right of Iran to possess nuclear weapons.

Astrologically, Ahmadinejad‘s birthchart has Sun in Scorpio, the sign of passionate emotional intensity and secrecy, and it is conjunct Neptune, making him an extremely emotional individual. He has a strong spirituality (Sun/Neptune) that is concerned with issues of power and domination (Scorpio). With Pluto (Scorpio’s ruler) in conflict with Saturn in his chart, he is obsessed (Pluto) with success and achievement (Saturn) and has a very strong will. This aspect in a birthchart can indicate either a strong motivation for success or a built-in fear of failure.

Chiron in his chart is square the Sun, revealing possible health problems as the result of an inability to truly establish one’s own sense of self. I suspect that Ahmahdinejad tends to burn himself into a frenzy and […]
