Bloody Easter in the city of gardens


Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park


On 27 March 2016 around 18,30, at least 75 people were killed and over 340 injured in a suicide bombing that hit the main entrance of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, one of the largest parks in Lahore, Pakistan and a popular venue with families.

The event chart

The benefics are cadent. Jupiter is in exile in Virgo in XII place. Venus in exaltation in Pisces in the VI place but with Cauda and with Aqua Aquari, azemena’s star. The Moon is moving away from Venus but void-of-course. Moreover the Moon is in detriment in Scorpio and opposing the Lot of Fortune in Taurus. The violent stars Antares and Aldebaran are exactly on the cusps of the III place and the IX place respectively. Mars is on the cusp of the III place. Mercury on the occident, under the Sun’s beams, is besieged by the malefics.

The syzygy

In the previous syzygy we see Saturn at the IC squaring both Jupiter rising in Virgo and Venus at the occident with Aqua Aquari. Mars is the Lord of the syzygy since Mars is domicile lord of the Sun and it trines the Sun. Both the Moon and Mercury are applying to Mars.

The Ingress

In the ingress chart Mars is at the occident with violent star Antares.  The Moon at the subterranean angle is moving away from Saturn and applying to Mars. Mercury, the Lord of the ascendent in Gemini, is combust and in exile and detriment in Pisces.


The long shadow of terror

Brussels's Angel

I cannot refrain from doubting that there exist any genuine realizations of our deepest character except war and illness, those two infinities of nightmare

Journey to the End of the Night, Ferdinand Céline


A deadly link exists between the terrorist attacks in Paris and those new ones in Brussels. Shortly after the arrest of Abdeslam, one on the terrorist involved in the Paris attacks, the terrorist choose to spread terror in the city where Abdeslam was arrested.

The long shadow of the eclipse

Solar Eclipse March 2015 Brussels .png

The chart for the solar eclipse in Brussels on 20th March 2015 is not so different from the one we have already seen for Paris (The Dark sides of the Moon). As for Paris Saturn, to which the Moon is applying, is with the Aculeus Scorpionis. The syzygy was in the XI place and lasted for 2 hours and 18 minutes and so the effects started around the end of June and will last till the end of 2017. The intensification will be around the end of April 2016.

The syzygy before the attacks

Syzygy before the attacks.png

The syzygy before the attacks was also a solar eclipse though not visible from Brussels. The syzygy occurred in Pisces on the III house cusp opposing Jupiter, the ruler of the Luminaries and the horoscope which is in exile in Virgo on the IX house cusp. The Luminaries are with the Aqua Aquarii, which are stars belonging to azemena stars (from Arabic az-zamâna, chronic infirmity or illness as well as inseparable disease) which are harmful especially to the sigh and raise passions. Moreover Mercury, which is with the Luminaries, is in exile and fall and it is squared both in the zodiac and in mundo by Mars with a right aspect.  Finally Saturn which squares both the Luminaries and Jupiter is with Antares, the violent star in the heart of Scorpio.

Let’s note that the syzygy is almost mirroring the solar eclipse chart. Furthermore we see that Mars of the solar eclipse in on the IC of the syzygy.

The attacks

The terrorist hit the airport the first time around the 8 in the morning on 22nd March.

We see  all the benefic planets are cadent. Venus on the XII cusp is in opposition to Jupiter and the Moon conjuncted in Virgo. The Moon is exactly opposed to the place of Luminaries during the preceding syzygy. Saturn squares both Venus and Jupiter and the Moon. Mars is in parallel in mundo with the Moon and squares Venus. Mars is with Graffias, violent star of Mars-Saturn nature. Let’s note that Mars has reached the same degree where Saturn was during the solar eclipse of March 2015.

At the 9:11 the metro in the centre of the city was bombed by terrorists. In that moment Mars was exactly on the occidental horizon. Metro bombing.png


Dark waters

Dark Waters

On the 9th of March a total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Indonesia and from locations in the Pacific Ocean.

The eclipse

The greatest eclipse will be in the middle of Micronesia, an archipelago of islands in Pacific ocean in front of Philippines. The eclipse in that area will last about 4 hours and 9 minutes.

According to Ptolemaic doctrine the eclipse effects will last 4 years and 2 months. Since the syzygy will occur at the meridian the effects will start in the second forth months, that is, between July and October. The intensifications will be  in the middle third of the entire period of its duration, that is, between the mid July 2017 and the end of November 2018.

The syzygy occurs in Pisces, in the terms of Mercury  near the MC also in Pisces in the terms of Jupiter. Jupiter retrograde in exile in Virgo at the IC is opposing the syzygy both in the zodiac and in mundo. Saturn in Sagittarius on the occident is squaring the syzygy in the zodiac. Mercury is in parallel in mundo with the syzygy and with Jupiter. Moreover Saturn squares Mercury in mundo with a right ray, making an epidekateia on Mercury.

Checking the fixed stars, we see the syzygy is in conjunction with the Aqua Aquarii the cluster of stars in the waterfall of Aquarius. Aqua Aquarii has nature of Saturn and Jupiter. The star Fomalhaut, in the mouth of Piscis Austrinus, of nature of Mercury and Venus is at the MC.

As we see many influences gather in the eclipse and though Jupiter seems prominent, because it is angular, opposing the luminaries and it has a dominion over them, we must consider that it is not visible, retrograde and in exile in Virgo. On the other hand  Mercury is doing the matutine heliacal setting in the next seven days and it is close to the MC, in parallel in mundo with the Luminaries and Jupiter.

I think that the dominion over the syzygy is of Mercury and Jupiter.

According to Ptolemy:

Mercury, if he gains the rulership, is, generally speaking, in nature like whatever of the other planets may be associated with him. In particular, he is above all stimulating, and in predictions concerning men is keen and very practical, ingenious in any situation; but he causes robbery, theft, piracy, and assault, and furthermore, brings about unsuccessful voyaging when he is in aspect with the maleficent planets, and occasions diseases of dryness, quotidian agues, coughs, raising, and consumption. He is the cause of events taking place which concern the priestly code, the worship of the gods, the royal revenues, and of changes in customs and laws, from time to time, in consistency with his association with the other planets on each occasion. With reference to the air, since he is very dry and swift on account of his nearness to the sun, and the speed of his revolution, he is particularly apt to arouse irregular, fierce, and changeable winds, and, as might be expected, thunder, hurricanes, chasms in the earth, earthquakes, and lightning; sometimes by these means he causes the destruction of useful animals and plants. At setting he diminishes waters and rivers, at rising fills them.

Since the syzygy occurs in the sign of Pisces and in the constellation of Aquarius, which are both wet and in particular the Luminaries are with Aqua Aquarii, the waterfall I judge that the event will concern the see and tempest. A seaquake or a tsunami or an hurricane can be the event predicted by the eclipse.

Since Jupiter is involved the severity of the event will be attenuated, but, since Jupiter is not in good condition and Saturn squares Jupiter in the zodiac and Mercury in mundo the additional influx of Jupiter will not be so beneficial.

Let’s note some configuration concerning the weather. In a syzygy, either elliptic or not, when a conjunction, an opposition or a square between two planets of opposite docile occur then a violent change in weather condition happens. This configuration is called ‘Opening of the Portals’. We see in this chart that Saturn squares the Luminaries, and Mars squares Venus. Moreover Saturn and the Luminaries are angular so their effects will be stronger.
Magini says in his “De Mutatione Liber Libellus”:

The first Opening of the Doors happens when Saturn is configured with the Sun or the Moon and it generates a turbid, cloudy and cold air, especially in earth and air signs; but in water signs instead it brings great rainfall and in winter snow, especially when Saturn rules over the angle during the New Moon, the Full Moon or the quarters or also when it is stationary or retrograde.

The square of Mars and Venus adds violence to the weather change, causing rainfall and lightning.
Since Jupiter and Mercury are also in parallel in mundo they produce strong winds.
Mercury is associated with all winds and so, being at the MC and aspected by Saturn and Jupiter, suggests that winds from different directions and opposite in humidity and temperature will meet and originate a cyclone.
Since this syzygy is the New Moon before the vernal equinox it should give an general picture of weather condition during the incoming spring season.
Anyway it gives and idea also about the effect of the eclipse.

Possible intensifications of the events

Ptolemy says:

The beginnings of the particular abatements and intensifications of the event we deduced from the conjunctions which take place in the meantime, if they occur in the significant regions or the regions in some aspect to them, and also from the other movements of the planets, if those that effect the predicted event are either rising or setting or stationary or at evening rising, and are at the same time in some aspect to the zodiacal signs that hold the cause; for planets when they are rising or stationary produce intensifications in the events, but when setting, and under the rays of the sun, or advancing at evening, they bring about an abatement.

Let’s look at moment in the range of possible manifestation of the syzygy influence in which the effects could be more intense.


During the Full Moon on the 6th of September 2017 Mercury in making its morning helical  rising and is on the occidental horizon with Mars and the star Regulus. The Moon is very close to the degree of the eclipse of 9th March 2016 and she is applying to Saturn. Saturn is squaring the Luminaries both in mundo and in the zodiac.

Another moment will be after the Full Moon on the 2nd March 2018.

Intensification II.png

Mercury in making its evening helical rising and is close to the degree of the eclipse of 9th March 2016. The Moon is applying to Mars which is with the star Shaula of the Sting of the Scorpio and it is squaring Mercury and Venus. Jupiter trines Mercury and Venus.
