The Astrology of the 2007 June Star of David

 

First and foremost, this was not a War Star. There was no square to the Sun. Mars, (the ruler of war), refranated from Aries, (a sign that it rules), into Taurus (a sign of detriment), before the Moon could oppose it. Refranations mean that matters can be dropped. In this case, the Iraq War fell out of favor and was seen as unfounded. Additionally, adversity and great difficulty is traditionally shown by a T-square configuration. There wasn’t a T-square in this 2007 Star, the first time this had occurred since 1995. The lack of a T-square in the 1995 Star of David preceded the cease fire in Bosnia and the Middle East Peace Accord. After this Star, the Federal Courts ruled against President Bush’s Enemy Combatant Policy.

 

  • There was rising support for troop withdrawal, (Mercury retrograde is the ruler of reassessment and retreat). Uranus is stationary retrograde (appearing to move backwards) in this Star while in the 2002 Iraq War Star it was stationary direct (starting to move forward).

  • The issue of war was key to the presidential election and the candidate who ran on an anti-war, troop withdrawal platform won, (Barack Obama).

  • The housing bubble burst and the subprime mortgage melt down ensued.

  • Corporate financial mismanagement and deceit (Venus opposing Neptune) lead to a collapse of financial institutions and recession.

The Astrology of the 2007 September Stars of David

 

This is another War Star with the Sun at the apex of a T-square. The war in Afghanistan will continue and perhaps heat up for a period of time. In all likelihood the war in Afghanistan will never be as intense as the Iraq War since the Sun, which is at the apex of a t-square with Mars and Pluto, is not so close in orb. The Sun is the faster planet here, and will be pulling away and out of the t-square. There will be attempts to disengage and any troop buildup will be with the intention of withdrawing as soon as possible. The troop buildup will never match the involvement in Iraq, but still there will be much unrest in the Middle East.

  • Benazir Bhutto returned to Pakistan shortly after this star and was assassinated.

  • Fighting broke out in Gaza between Israel and Hamas resulting in civilian casualties and widespread destruction.

  • Elections in both Pakistan and Iran appeared to be rigged and were followed by protests.

  • The USA elected its first black president in 2008.

  • The mortgage meltdown continued and worsened.

  • Several big companies and banks either folded or were bought out.

  • Many of the remaining banks looked for a bailout as did the US auto companies.

  • This led to a global recession (Venus in a critical degree conjunct to Saturn).

  • Executive misconduct and excessive bonuses continued with Venus opposing Neptune.

  • Concerns for global warming increased and the extinction of the polar bears became a possibility.

  • Former Vice President Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to bring the crisis to everyone’s attention.
