July 29, 2013 STAR

The Sun is at the apex of a tight t-square in this chart. It is difficult to say whether this is a war star or not. Saturn is a malefic squaring the Sun, but the Moon is certainly not a malefic planet. I would tend to think a "middle of the road" interpretation would be best. With the threat from Iran's nuclear program and terriorist groups around the world, I would call this a silent, unseen war. Saturn is in secrecy Scorpio. The Moon is exalted in Taurus which indicates without blame. The Sun is in Leo rulership and this is a strong Sun with rights. I believe any action is covert, and the withdrawal from Afghanistan continues or is completed.

Violence is still seen in the chart. Unlawful activities are prominent with Pluto opposed to Mars in fall in Cancer and square to Uranus in Aries. Individual, random attacks by fanatics and rebels without a cause are likely. These will be difficult to predict and hard to prevent.

I would expect to see more regulations placed on banks and wall street as Jupiter in exaltation in Cancer (wealth) is trine to Saturn in Scorpio (control), opposed by Pluto in Capricorn (government), and square to Uranus. Those who have more will pay more and those who have less will not be so stressed. Jupiter exalted in Cancer (wealth) is sextile to Venus in fall (poverty) and sextile to the Moon in exaltation (the masses). The economy might still be struggling with Venus in Virgo and opposed by Neptune. This particular aspect has been difficult in past Stars of David. At the least, there will be feelings of uncertainty and the ecomonic indicators will probably be confusing with some up while others are down. With Saturn opposing the Moon, the housing market will still be an issue. This is confirmed by the fact that Mars is in fall in the sign of Cancer.

The difficulties with the economy might be originating overseas since Mars in fall is conjunct to Jupiter (foreign interests). Around the world it will be feast or famine. Some European and Asian countries will do well or will recover while others will still be in a recession.

The issue of healthcare is mixed. There are three planets in Cancer. Jupiter in exaltation means doing the right thing, however, Mars in fall in Cancer has no rights and indicates the possibility of doing the right thing in th ewrong way. Do figure! Mercury on the other hand has no standing. Since Jupiter and Mars are sextile to Venus in Virgo, low income people will be covered no matter what. Healthcare might be mandated through some loophole. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
