The Sultan of Turkey trembles

Hanged man

The first of November 2015 a new general election will be held in Turkey since the last election of the 7 June 2015 resulted in a hung parliament.

Erdogan, who was prime minister for eleven year till 2014 and its now president of Turkey, called in August for new election after the Justice and Development Party (AKP) lost the absolute majority and it was impossible to form a coalition. Erdogan, founder of the AKP, wanted to give a second possibility to his party to gain the absolute majority and so to realize his project to transform Turkey into a presidential republic.

Erdogan, a very shrewd and charismatic leader and politician, was involved in corruption scandals and controversies and his increasing weakness begins to be reveled by dissent which show up as partial lost of political consensus of his party, the AKP.

The  geniture

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Temperament

Since the Horoscope is in Capricorn, domicile of Saturn and exaltation of Mars, and Saturn is at the MC squaring the ascendent and Mars is conjunct with the Moon, Saturn and  Mars are the  Lords of Temperament. Saturn oriental, is cold and moderately dry; Mars oriental, matutine is hot and dry. The Moon is in the last quarter, waining so she adds a more melancholic tone. Moreover the Mars and Moon are with the star Antares, of nature of Mars and Jupiter, and with Vega, star of nature of Venus and Mercury. So his temperament is mainly dry and temperate, that is, melancholic choleric. His body is  quite tall and robust, with  a rosy complexion and brown eyes. Saturn is the constellation of Virgo and the ascendent in the constellation of Sagittarius, so they give a bigger and well shaped body but the Moon and Mars in the constellation of Scorpio lessen the grace and proportion of the body.

Lord of the Soul

Since the Moon is in Sagitarius with Mars and Mercury with Venus in Pisces, squared by Jupiter the Lords of the Soul are Jupiter and Mars but Venus contributes because she is with Mercury exalted in Pisces, doing the evening heliacal rising.

Ptolemy says

Jupiter allied with Mars in honourable positions makes his subjects rough, pugnacious, military, managerial, restless, unruly, ardent, reckless, practical, outspoken, critical, effective, contentious, commanding, given to plotting, respectable, virile, fond of victory, but magnanimous, ambitious, passionate, judicious, successful. In the opposite position he makes them insolent, undiscriminating, savage, implacable, seditious, contentious, stubborn, slanderous, conceited, avaricious, rapacious, quickly changeable, light, readily changing their minds, unstable, headstrong, untrustworthy, of poor judgement, unfeeling, excitable, active, querulous, prodigal, gossipy, and in all ways uneven and easily excited.

Jupiter is not very well placed being in detriment in Gemini and occidental and furthermore Mars are Jupiter are in opposition and the opposition is a discordant figure. So this aspect gives to the quality of his soul a negative shade. Venus in is exaltation in Pisces, doing the evening heliacal rising gives him a magnetic personality and soften his hard attitude and make him more jovial especially in a familiar environment.

About the opposition of Mar and Jupiter notable is what the Anonymous says:

Produces all sorts of irregularities and confusion concerning the condition of life and changes friends into enemies, since Jupiter is indeed the cause of peace, Mars of wrath and anger and the diameter figure is hostile. It means the worries that come from precipitation and from the agitated thoughts.

and Firmicus adds:

They raise serious danger because of stormy relationships or hazardous activities.

Firmicus says about the Mars Moon conjunction:

This conjunction makes men hot tempered and every activity they begin often has a successful outcome, especially if these stars are placed in an angle of the geniture. And though it’s decreed for them a short life time or a premature end obstacles the course of their lives. For someone it inflicts the stain of a poor health and dangerous situations of all kinds. And if anything of that happens, it causes an unhappy and miserable end or moves against them the power of the ironware or of the sword. This union shows for the mother the sad scourge of the disease, so her body is weakened by infirmity. But if Jupiter, located in favorable places of the geniture or in the main corners, in his home or in his exaltation, observes these stars with benign radiation, the dangers of all these accidents are mitigated.

Moreover we must point out the conjunction of Moon and Mars with star Antares. Indeed if it rises or culminates gives honors and elevation when it is commingled with benevolent planets; it behaves contrary, if it is commingled with malefics. Pretty bad for the body and for the uncertain fortune; it makes a man furious and reckless, Cardano says. And he adds: with the Moon it makes violent men, with great audacity and many dangers. According to Pezelius, with the significators of the soul it gives violent traits and audacity mixed with cruelty.

The quality of action and dignity of the native

Mars oriental to the Sun, receiving the application of the Moon and having dominion on the MC is the Lord of Activities. Jupiter is configured with Mars in Sagittarius so it participates. Saturn contributes being at the MC. Saturn generally makes manager and administrators.

Ptolemy says:

Mars,in aspect with the sun,… If Jupiter testifies, he produces soldiers, police officers, publicans, innkeepers, ferrymen, assistants at sacrifice.

Rethorius says:

The star of Mars changing to be in the star of the Good Daemon by night makes the existence of many good things and those who are deemed worthy of honor by the people, and friends among the powerful.

Concerning the honor and dignity we note that the Moon, Luminary of the Time, receives the doryphory of Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury. So the native is quite dignified and will reach a very good social position.

A sinister shadow

We have already observed the presence of Mars with the Moon and with Antares which give a violent nature to the native and dangers and worries. But Mars is in sect so it isn’t too problematic. Instead Saturn, out-of-sect, culminating at the MC, even if it is Lord of the Horoscope, is quite sinister.

Firmicus says:

Saturn by night on the MC indicates misfortunes: loss of inheritance, no marriage, no children, especially if it’s in the house of terms of a malefic planet. But if a benefic planet, that is, Venus or Jupiter if in a favorable aspect to Saturn thus located by night, those things which were denied will be given in another way. But in general Saturn located in any angles by night indicates the greatest evils. He destroys wife and children and always predicts grief from loss of relatives.

In Erdogan’s geniture Saturn is trined by Sun, Mercury and Venus so the dangers are weakened but still incumbent.

A glimpse into the future

Due to the incoming political election in Turkey it is interesting to glance in the Erdogan’s near future.

Profection - 1st november 2015

Profection – 1st november 2015

From the Profection for the 1st of November 2015 we see that the Profected Moon and Mars are received by Horoscope of nativity in Capricorn. The Profected horoscope is with the Sun of nativity in Pisces. Those configurations could not be a good sign about his health. Moreover the Profected Saturn in Sagittarius is in opposition to the Natal Jupiter.

Solar Return 2015

Solar Return 2015

In the last Solar Return we see Mars, the Lord of the Horoscope of Revolution, in its domicile in Aries in the V place with Venus. Vega also is rising at the horoscope. But Saturn of Nativity is over the horoscope of Revolution and Saturn of Revolution in conjunction with the Moon and Mars of  the Nativity which in turn oppose the Moon of Revolution. Moreover the Moon in the Solar Return is in aversion with the horoscope and with Algol and Aldebaran.

The Lord of the year from the Profection is Saturn because is in the lord of the Profected horoscope in Aquarius for the day of the Solar Return. So Erdogan till the next birthday will be ruled by Saturn.  Anyway due to the daily motion of the Horoscope, on the first of November will be already in Pisces and the benefic Jupiter is a far better ruler.

The directions are not good either especially at the end of October but they are very effected by the correctness of the birth hour, which I rectified by his major life event but obviously still remains uncertain.

For sure this year was not very good for Erdogan as we see from the Solar Return and Saturn as Lord of the year. After the next elections probably the situation will be unchanged.

      Thank you very much! I added the tag. I know it’s not very easy to find the Lord of Activity following the Ptolemaic doctrine. I’m trying to do my best and I’m also still learning from genitures which I study. It’s difficult to make a prediction too: surprisingly Erdogan gained the majority in this election. Probably Jupiter, Lord of the Profected Horoscope already in Pisces over the Sun of nativity helped him to improve his situation. Anyway at the moment his party did not reach enough seats in Parliament to change the constitution which was his very aim. The situation in Turkey is still and probably even more fragile now. Erdogan’s victory could be a Pyrrhic Victory. We will see in the next months.
