A note about the recent events in Middle East

Two recent events in the Middle East reminded me of the Lunar Eclipse occurred on the last February and the blog post about it: The shadowed Moon over Arabia.  The first is the abruptly announced resignation of the Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri from Saudi Arabia on 4 November 2017 followed by the arrests of 11 Princes for corruption in Saudi Arabia during the night. The other one is the earthquake occurred on 12 November on the Iran-Iraq border.  Since during the lunar eclipse occurred on 11th February  2017 the Moon was in Leo the affected region should have been, according to Ptolemy, Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan and Kuwait in particular since those countries are ruled by Leo and also Syria, Palestine, Israel and Yemen since they are under the influence of the fire triplicity.

In my previous post I judged that the effects would have concerned the fall or death of leaders and damage to buildings and would showed up between the first half of October and the first half of February 2018; the intensification of the effects around November 2017.

Below we can see the chart I erected for Al Qurayyat, a city in the north of Saudi Arabia, close to the border of  Jordan and Iraq where the malefic are exactly on the angles during the eclipse.


What’s going on in Saudi Arabia?

The situation in Saudi Arabia is quite puzzling. The resignation of Hariri , the Lebanese Prime Minister, announced on the television during his visit in Riyadh, was followed by the rumors that he was forced to declare it and possibly detained against his will in Riyadh. Moreover on 9 November 2017, Saudi Arabia, and subsequently the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, urge all citizens currently in Lebanon to leave the country immediately.  The arrest of number of prominent Saudi Arabian princes, government ministers, and business people occurred during the night following the Hariri’s announcement of his resignation. The detainees were confined at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh and measures to prevent their fleeing were taken. Prince Mansour bin Muqrin, son of former Crown Prince, was killed while allegedly attempting to flee the country with his private helicopter on November 5. There were rumors that Abdul Aziz, youngest son of King Fahd, was killed while resisting arrest, but the Saudi information ministry released a statement which deny those rumors.

It seem reasonable that the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who led the anti-corruption committee, want to strengthen his power in Saudi Arabia and change the political balances in the Middle East.

The announcement of Hariri’s resignation was broadcasted around 11:30 UT.


Let’s note that Saturn is exactly at the MC,  25° Sagittarius, the same zodiacal degree he had during the eclipse when he was rising at the horoscope. After the lunar eclipse Saturn became retrograde and then he started again the direct motion reaching the same position the 5th of November. Mars is at 8° of Libra almost in opposition to the position he had during the eclipse at 10° of Aries.

The Iran–Iraq earthquake

On 12 November 2017 at 18:18 UTC an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.3 occurred on the Iran–Iraq border, just inside Iran, with an epicentre approximately 32 kilometers south-southwest of the city of Halabja, Iraqi Kurdistan.

It was felt throughout the Middle East and further away. With at least 452 people killed and more than 8,100 injured. It is currently the deadliest earthquake of 2017.


In the chart of the earthquake Mars in exactly at the IC at 13° of Libra, almost in opposition to his position during the eclipse. The Sun and the Moon are in sextile and in parallel in mundo around the IC where Mars is posited. Moreover Mars is oriental and rules the Sun and Saturn and the Moon are in square in mundo.

In the syzygy preceding the earthquake the malefics were in the angular houses in perfect square in mundo.earthquake-syzygy.png



Las Vegas shooting

A gunman opened fire on the crowd at a music festival on the night of October 1, 2017, in Las Vegas killing at least 58 and injuring 546 people, in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The event chart

The shooting came at 10:05 p.m. local time.

We see Saturn occidental in Sagittarius at the occidental horizon while the Moon at the MC in Aquarius is moving away from his sextile and is applying to Jupiter in Libra. Saturn is the out-of-sect malefic and dispositor of the Moon. The Moon is with Cauda. The Moon is with the star Deneb Algedi, having nature of Saturn and Jupiter and stars in the tail and muzzle of Capricornus which are harmful and passionate. Venus in detriment and exile in Virgo is applying to Mars, close to perfect the bodily conjunction: this figure stirs the passions, the violent acts. Moreover Jupiter and Tyche are with Coma Berenices which is also a harmful asterism. Lets note that the star Regulus is exactly at the subterranean pivot and the Moon oppose Regulus from the supernal pivot. Since the star Regulus was in conjunction with the Luminaries during the recent solar eclipse, it is noteworthy.

The syzygy before the event

In the preceding syzygy the out-of-sect Saturn is also close to the occidental horizon. Mercury which rules the syzygy and also the ruler of the horoscope is visible in his throne in Virgo but he is with Mars both in the zodiac and in mundo. Moreover Mercury is in parallel of declination  with Mars. The Hyades and Aldebaran, harmful star of nature of Mars, are rising at the horoscope. The Sting of  Scorpio, Aculeus Scorpii, a harmful nebula of nature of Mars and Moon is on the occident. Deneb Algedi and stars in the tail and muzzle of Capricornus are at the MC.  The IC is exactly in the place of the Luminaries during the last eclipse. Also noteworthy is Venus in bodily with the star Regulus. Venus is angular, in her detriment at the very beginning of Virgo. She is in sextile with Jupiter of whom she also dispositor since Jupiter is in Libra so she gives to Jupiter both her detriment and his exile since she is in Virgo, exile of Jupiter.


Venus with Regulus, Mars and Mercury and their vis luminis

The ingress in Libra


We now take into account the last ingress of the Sun, which was in Libra. Saturn was rising at the horoscope. Mars is in parallel in mundo and antiparallel of declination with both the Moon and Jupiter. The Moon is with the star Arcturus and Coma Berenices is at the MC. The Moon is moving from Jupiter to Venus bringing together the nature of Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars.

The recent eclipse


Though the beginning of the last Sun eclipse should be expected after four months in Las Vegas, since the Luminaries were distant from the eastern horizon one third of the diurnal arch, the eclipse seems to be significative for the shooting which occurred only one month and half after. Mars and Saturn are in trine both in the zodiac and in mundo. The Luminaries are with Mars. Also they are in trine in mundo and parallel in mundo with Saturn. This figure is called equicruria and it is very strong. We see therefore the Luminaries making a figure with both the malefics. Jupiter is at the horoscope making aspects with the malefics, the luminaries and his domicile lord, Venus. Venus squares in mundo Jupiter: it’s a epidekateia with a mutual reception since Jupiter is in the Venus’ domicile and Venus in Cancer, exaltation of Jupiter. But this very strong and benefic figure is not capable to avert the accident because of the presence of the malefics. Moreover Venus and MC are with the violent star Pollux of nature of Mars.

At the time of the shooting the Moon was close to the opposition of the place of the eclipse and Saturn on the occident was casting a ray by a dexter square to the Moon at the MC. Venus in subterranean angle, which was exactly with  the star Regulus during the syzygy before the event, was heading to the bodily conjunction with Mars.

The enigma of Macron


France could have all the socialism its capitalistic economy could support. Francois Mitterrand

Who is Macron? A man who presented himself as an anti-system outsider, but was in power for the past five years as Hollande’s special adviser and then minister of the economy without counting he worked as investment banker at a highly-paid position at Rothschild & Cie Banque; a man supported by the mainstream media, to the point of blatant partiality but being quite vague in general about his policies positions; a man mistrust as the final emissary of world financial powers but lauded as the only savior from the rising nationalism and anti-europeism; a man impersonating the fatal and romantic love for his spouse and suspected to have contracted a lavender marriage. Nobody really knows but of course it’s not so important like being able to be everything the majority of french people judges at this juncture as a suitable président de la république. And so it was.

The geniture

Emmanuel Macron

There is something uncertain and enigmatic also in his geniture. The ascendent and the other angles are all in the very end of signs. That makes the outcome very sensitive to the accuracy of the time of his birth, since if he was born only few minutes later the pivots would shift to the following signs.

The Temperament

The horoscope is in Capricorn in the terms of Mars. The stars Markab and Shaula, both of nature of Mercury and Mars, are rising. The Moon in Taurus is void of course and moving away from Mars. The Moon is also in square with Saturn in the zodiac and in trine with him in mundo. Therefore the Lords of Temperament are Mars and Saturn. Macron is melancholic and choleric. Both Mars and Saturn are oriental, in angular house, the seventh and retrograde. Their presence in an angle opposite to the ascendent angle is not good for his health. In particular Mars, which is out-of-sect and receives his debility from the Moon which is in Libra. Mars is by nature dry and hot and since he is retrograde is very hot leaning him a hot deceases as ulcerations, rashes and sores.

The Soul

Mercury in Sagittarius in the terms of Saturn is in opposition to Jupiter in Cancer and he receives Saturn in Virgo by trine. Since we have already seen that Moon has familiarity with Saturn, the Lords of the Soul are Saturn and Jupiter. Saturn and Jupiter are in sextile both in the zodiac and in mundo. Also Jupiter is exalted in Cancer. Ptolemy says:

Saturn, allied with Jupiter in the way described, again in dignified positions, makes his subjects good, respectful to elders, sedate, noble-minded, helpful, critical, fond of possessions, magnanimous, generous, of good intentions, lovers of their friends, gentle, wise, patient, philosophical.

Since both Saturn and Jupiter are retrograde they give some disproportion to the qualities of the soul previously stated. He will be sometimes to rigid and harsh sometimes too lavish and presumptuous.

The profession

Mars is oriental but retrograde so he is unfit as lord of activity. Venus is oriental but sub radii. Mercury is in conjunction with the Sun but retrograde. No planet has familiarity with the MC. There is no proper planet to be taken as the significator of activity. But since Mercury generally is not effected by the vicinity to the Sun as the other planets we can take him as significator of activity.

Mercury receives Saturn by trine. This aspect is a sign of is past activity as investment banker.

The Anonymous says:

It makes the natives reflexive and perspicacious, their reasoning is firm and they are secure. Their activities are related to reasoning, letters, numbers, and trading from which they earns what is enough for their lives.

and Valens adds

Saturn in trine to Mercury, especially in its triangles, makes the administrators of kings, superintendents and prosecutors, who are responsible for navigation or administrative affairs and similar assignments.  They are born perspicacious, cunning men.

Jupiter is in opposition to Mercury. This is a pulsatio naturae since Mercury is applying to Jupiter from the Jupiter domicile. But Mercury is in his exile in Sagittarius and also retrograde and combust so he is weak. Moreover Jupiter is exalted in Cancer but retrograde and so he is not really able to receive the gift from Mercury. This aspect is related to his political career since Jupiter is significator of authority and leadership.

But the Anonymous warns:

It is harmful to those who deal with writings and accounts: it means the insurrection and the anger of people or the denigration to the superiors dictated by envy, the death of the brothers and accusations and quarrels between relatives.

The Dignity

As we have seen from a previous article (French Presidential Election: part 1) Macron is among the other candidate the less dignified according to the doctrine of Ptolemy. Therefore we can judge that that doctrine in not entirely correct or, more probably, complete in detecting the rank of a geniture. Macron was already a very successful man and now, as president of France, is rank is definitely at the top. Despite this there is something out of place in his geniture for a star of first magnitude since most of the planets in Macron’s geniture are retrograde or under the rays and the luminaries are not angular. But Macron has actually a very fist magnitude star preeminent in his nativity: Regulus. Saturn which is the Lord of the Horoscope is angular with the star Regulus.


Saturn  with Regulus

The marriage

According to Ptolemy:

For men it is necessary to observe the position of the moon in their genitures. For, in the first place, if she chances to be in the eastern quadrants, she makes men marry young or marry women younger than themselves; but if she is in the western quadrants they marry late or marry older women. And if she is under the rays of the sun and in aspect with Saturn, they do not marry at all.

The doctrine of Ptolemy should be understood regarding both the mundane quadrants and the quadrants relative to the Sun. The Moon is in the occidental quadrant regarding her mundane position as the Moon is between the subterranean pivot and the horoscope. Also the Moon is in the occidental quadrant relative to the Sun as the Moon is between the first quarter and the Full Moon.

Vettius Valens says:

Venus trine with Saturn makes men severe, humorless, supercilious, rough in love and promiscuous, yet lying with base-born or elderly women, or with prostitutes

All those who have Venus in conjunction with Saturn, as a houseruler of Saturn, or in superior aspect with Saturn, and who have Jupiter in aspect with both, are united with prominent or elderly women.

Venus in in the terms of Saturn in aspect with Saturn and both Saturn and Venus are in aspect with Jupiter.
Moreover Venus is under the Sun’s rays and she is heading toward the combustion.
In the Solar Return for the year of his weeding that took place on the 20th October 2007 we see Saturn which is the  Lord of Horoscope both in the geniture and the Solar Return is at the occident, close to his natal position. Venus of nativity is close to MC of Revolution and with Mercury of Revolution. The Moon and Venus are in conjunction in their Capricorn and in opposition to the Part of Wedding.
Wedding-Solar Revolution.png
In the protection the profected Sun is with the Lot of Wedding. The profected Moon trines the Lot of Wedding and the Lot of Fortune. The Moon of nativity is with the profected Venus.
In the mundane directions we see the Sun and Mercury reaching the MC and squaring in mundo the Horoscope.

The victory

In the Solar Revolution previous the his victory we see the star Regolus exactly at the horoscope of revolution with Saturn of nativity. The Moon is translating the light of Saturn to the Sun. Mars is at the occident.

President-Solar Return.png

In the mundane directions the directed Sun and Mercury are with Nike, the Lot of Victory.  The directed Moon is in opposition to Saturn of nativity. The directed Jupiter to the Sun and Mercury of nativity. The directed Mars to the Sun and Mercury of nativity.


With the aid of the astrolabe we see more clearly that the Moon reaches by direction the opposition to Saturn and Regulus of nativity.


Last Christmas


Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day, you gave it away  Last Christmas – Wham

As a friend says, “Last Christmas” is the very song of Christmas time, especially for those guys, as my friend and I, who were just teenagers in 1984 when the single was released.

The geniture

Since George Michael’s birth time is 6 a.m. from memory, we need to check it and in case correct it. If the birth time is corrected to 5:41 we find a death direction of Saturn to the Ascendent by opposition. The Ascendent is the apheta in George Michael’s geniture as we will see.

George Michael geniture.png

The Temperament

Jupiter is the Lord of the Ascendent by exaltation and he is in sestile with the Ascendent. The Moon, which is also the Lord of the Ascendent, in Leo is moving away from the trine of Jupiter and applying to the opposition of Saturn. Since Jupiter is also one of the triplicity lord of the Moon, we can say that Jupiter is the Lord of Temperament. Since Jupiter is oriental, he is hot and moist and the temperament is sanguine. The Moon is waxing adding humidity and a bit of warm. Pollux and Bellatrix, star of nature of Mars, are rising at the horoscope and Mars is angular squaring the horoscope so there is an increase in the hot quality.

Ptolemy says:

Jupiter, as the ruler of the aforesaid regions, when he is rising, makes his subjects in appearance light of skin, but in such a way as to have a good colour, with moderately curling hair and large eyes, tall, and commanding respect; in temperament they exceed in the hot and the moist.

The Soul

Mercury invisible in Gemini is in conjunction with Venus in the terms of Venus. Also Mercury is in his domicile and his nocturnal triplicity. Mercury is in sestile with Jupiter and he is in quartile  in mundo with Saturn, which is also the diurnal triplicity ruler of Mercury. So Venus and Jupiter are the Lords of the Soul but Mercury and Saturn cast a melancholic shadow over his jovial character especially because Saturn is making an epidekateia to Mercury.

Ptolemy says:

Jupiter, allied with Venus, in honourable positions makes his subjects pure, pleasure-loving, lovers of the beautiful, of children, of spectacles, and of the domain of the Muses, singers, fond of those who reared them, of good character, beneficent, compassionate, guileless, religious, prone to athletic training, fond of competition, wise, affectionate, charming in a dignified way, magnanimous, fair, charitable, fond of learning, of good judgement, moderate and decorous in matters of love, fond of their kinsfolk, pious, just, ambitious, seekers after glory, and in general gentlemanly.

Jupiter and Venus are both in honorable position in his geniture in particular because both planet are in their proper face or almugea. We know that George Michael was a magnanimous and charitable man who during his life gave generously to many charities often without publicity.

The Star Aldebaran and the Hyades are with Mercury and Venus. Aldebaran is the red eye of the Bull, of nature of Mars; the Hyades are the moist stars on the Taurus’ muzzle which cause passion. Christoph Pezel says that when Aldebaran is united with the Lord of the Soul makes a restless, impetuosus, man; Argoli says that makes a martial soul and  gives animosity.

In respect to matters of love we inspect through Mars according to Ptolemy. Mars is in quartile with Venus and Mercury.

With Venus alone, or if Jupiter also is with her, but Saturn is not present, he produces lustful, careless men, who seek their pleasures from every quarter; and if one of the planets is an evening and the other a morning star, men who have relations with both males and females, but no more than moderately inclined to either. But if both are evening stars, they will be inclined toward the females alone, and if the signs of the zodiac are feminine, they themselves will be pathics. If both are morning stars, they will be infected only with love of boys, and if the signs of the zodiac are masculine, with males of any age.

Mars is occidental and Venus is oriental. Lets note that Venus oriental is in Gemini, a masculine sign.

Moreover the Hyades are with Venus and Mercury and, according to Ptolemy, this union makes the soul subject to the passions and inclined to obscenity. Moreover the presence of Mercury make the situation notorious and the passions more various.

The Profession

Venus and Mercury are the closest planet to the Sun. Mercury is invisible though. Venus is also the ruler of the MC by exaltation, triplicity and terms. Lord of Action, therefore, is Venus with the participation of Mercury.

Again, when two planets are found to rule action, if Mercury and Venus take the rulership, they bring about action expressed by the arts of the Muses, musical instruments, melodies, or poems, and rhythm, particularly when they have exchanged places.

Mercury is in quartile in mundo with Tyche  which is with the star Regulus.

The death

Michael death direction.png

Since the Luminaries aren’t in aphetic places and so Tyche, the Lot of Fortune, the Ascendent is the giver of life.

In the picture above we see the direction of Saturn to  the descendent. Moreover at the same time a direction of Mars to the square of Jupiter. Jupiter is, as we have talked about before, George Michael’s Lord of the Body.


In his last solar return we see the Lot of Fortune with Saturn and the Moon is squared both in the zodiac and in mundo with the a dexter square by Saturn. Both the Moon and the Pars of Fortune are significators of the body, moreover in nativity Saturn is opposing the Moon.


From the comparison between the Directions and the Solar Revolution we see that Saturn is on the Ascendent of Revolution and that the Moon of Revolution is in opposition to the  Sun of Direction.

The Admission to the Hospital in Vienna

On 21 November 2011 during a tour, the singer was admitted to a hospital in Vienna, Austria as a consequence of a serious pneumonia and stayed in an intensive care unit till 21 December 2011 where he was in coma and he undergone also a tracheotomy.


The directed Moon arrives at the Horoscope and also at the square of Mars of Nativity.


In the Solar Revolution we see the violent star Antares rising at the horoscope with Altair. The Moon, Venus and Saturn are angular. Saturn occidental at the MC in Libra is opposing the waning Moon at the IC in Aries. Noteworthy is that the Moon is dry and cold because of her phase and  Saturn is very dry and cold being occidental. Their opposition intensifies the melancholic humor and strongly effects the body. Moreover the Jupiter of Nativity is with the Moon of Revolution. Also the Mars of Revolution in Gemini squares the Moon of Profection which is the Lord of Year since the profected horoscope is in Cancer.

A note on the recent earthquakes in Central Italy

A dear friend of mine and a very good astrologer, Margherita Fiorello (her blog: Heaven Astrolabe ), told me concerning my article about the recent earthquakes in Central Italy that,according to Cardano, a catastrophic event should be predicted from a solar eclipse instead of a lunar eclipse. So I checked for a suitable solar eclipse visible from central Italy.

The Solar Eclipse of March 2015

Solar Eclipse March 2015 Amatrice.png

The eclipse started at 8:25 UT and it ended at 10:43 UT. The maximum will be at 9:32 UT. The syzygy will be in the X place and lasted for 2 hours and 18 minutes and so the effects should have started around the beginning of August 2015 and lasted till the end of 2017. The intensification should have been around the half of May 2016.

So the influx of this solar eclipse was still active in the period of the earthquakes.

The Lord of the Eclipse is Saturn since  the Moon is applying to Saturn and the Luminaries are in the bounds of Saturn. Let’s noteDuring this eclipse the luminaries were at the end of  Pisces while during the lunar eclipse on 28 September 2015 the Moon was at the beginning of Aries and the Sun in the first degree of Libra, therefore the two syzygies occurred on the same axis but the lunar one was already in the sign of Aries which belongs to the fire triplicity having lordship over Italy and western Europe. The star Regulus in the solar eclipse was at the subterranean angle where at the time of the lunar eclipse was with Mars which was located exactly on the IC of the solar eclipse. As we have already seen in my previous articles, Saturn, which is lord of this solar eclipse, was the lord also of the lunar eclipse of September and it was at that time at the IC.

So the lunar eclipse occurred in September 2015 strengthened the previous influx from the solar eclipse.

Let’s note that Mercury was close to the MC during the solar eclipse and in square in the zodiac and in trine in mundo with Saturn. Ptolemy says that Mercury can be a sign of earthquakes during an eclipse. Mercury during this solar eclipse in Albania was exactly at the MC. So this can be a sign of a possible event in that area, especially in the first half of next December.


The heart of Italy is again under attack


Norcia, main square and the Basilica

The terrible earthquake occurred on 24 August 2016 in Central Italy was followed by other earthquakes in the same area. The last one, which fortunately caused no victims, happened on the 30 October 2016 at 6:40 UTC in Norcia. Norcia is an old medieval town where St. Benedict, the founder of the Benedictine monastic order, was born in 480. The earthquake destroyed the Basilica of St. Benedict and heavily damaged many buildings.

As we saw in the previous article A comparison of two earthquakes the lunar eclipse of 28 September 2015 seems to have effected the earthquake occurred in Central Italy at the end of August 2016. So let’s look at the same eclipse for Norcia.

The eclipse


The chart is almost the same one that we have already seen for Amatrice. The horoscopes are different only for few seconds. As in the other case, the effects of the eclipse should last till the first week of November. So the earthquake swarm, which concerned that region since the ruinous earthquake of last August, and particularly the last one in Norcia are in the time window influenced by the eclipse. The lord of the eclipse are Saturn and Jupiter and Saturn is quite strong at the subterranean pivot.

Let’s note that Mars is with the star Regulus, the heart of Leo.

The syzygy before the earthquake


The Moon is Aries and Mars at the subterranean pivot exalted in Capricorn, the Saturn domicile. Moreover the Moon is in square, though a quite wide one, with her Lord, Mars. So Mars is the Lord of the syzygy. Let’s note that Mars is exactly at the IC. Moreover the Moon is in a wide trine with Saturn and she is moving away from the opposition to Mercury. Mars and Saturn are in aspect with the horoscope and Jupiter and Mercury on the eastern horizon.  The star Antares, of nature of Mars and Jupiter, is with Saturn. The star Arcturus, of nature of Mars and Jupiter, is rising. Let’s note that the Ascendent-Descendent axis is close to the solar-lunar axis of the eclipse.

The earthquake


The Moon is moving away from the square of Mars and applying to the Sun but she is not visible since she is already to close to the Sun. Moreover the Moon is also in square in mundo with Mars. Saturn is with Venus and the star Antares. The star Regulus, which at the time of the eclipse was with Mars, is exactly at the MC. Ptolemy in the Tebrabiblos Bk II Chp III, talking about the familiarity of the regions of the Earth with the triplicities and the planets, says that Leo is the sign that rules Italy. He actually means the sign of the tropic zodiac and not the constellation. Though we see that Regulus, the heart of Leo, seems quite highlighted in these charts. Even if the now Regulus in no more in sign of Leo but at the beginning of Virgo, this concurrence contributes to remind that the very heart of  Italy was hit again.

The Malefics threaten the South East Africa

On the 1st of September 2016 a solar eclipse will be visible in Africa mainly in the southern hemisphere. The greatest eclipse will occur at the border between Tanzania and Mozambique at 9:06 UT.


Planets and stars during the eclipse


The chart for Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania

Solar Eclipse Tanzania.png

Let’s have a look at the chat for Dar Es Salaam. The eclipse will start at 7:13 UT and it will end at 10:56 UT. The maximum will be at 9:04 UT. The syzygy will be in the X place and lasted for 3 hours and 43 minutes and so the effects will started around the beginning of March 2017 and will last till the end of 2022. The intensification will be around the half of July 2019.

The syzygy will be in the 10° of Pisces since Dar Es Salaam is in the southern hemisphere and so the tropical signs are reversed. Jupiter and Venus are the Lord of Pisces by domicile and exaltation but Mars is the lord of bounds. Nor Jupiter neither Venus are in aspect with the Moon and the Sun. On the other hand Saturn and Mars, the malefics, are rising at the horoscope and they aspect the syzygy by a square both in the zodiac and in mundo. The Moon is applying to Saturn. Moreover Antares, the violent star of nature of Mars and Jupiter, is rising at the eastern horizon while Aldebaran, star of nature of Mars, is at the occident.

Since Mars is at the horoscope and he is lord of the bounds of the syzygy and the Moon is applying to Saturn, both the malefics are lords of the syzygy. Those planets can be a sign of great troubles. Since the eclipse occurs in Pisces may concern water and rivers, but being near the MC and in a common sign can involve people or a leader. Also a calamitous natural  event can be the outcome as a hurricane or a earthquake.
