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 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.

The love therapist

fiorucciYour worst vice? Loving women too much. Your greatest virtue? Loving women too much. Elio  Fiorucci from MarieClaire Interview

Elio Fiorucci was found dead the 20th of July in his apartment in Milano. He died for a sudden illness probably during the day before. He was eighty year old. With him an era in Italian fashion industry definitely disappears.

He began his career in fashion at the age of 17, making its way up selling slippers in his father’s store in Milan. His talent soon led him to explore new creative territories. So he began to travel and brought back with him suggestions, new ideas and rare items.

In 1967, in the middle of the beat generation era,  he opened in Galleria Passarella in the centre of Milan his first flagship store. It was a store which was never seen before in Milan or elsewhere.  Entering there it was like being admitted to a fairy world: you left behind the grayness of Milan to find yourself surrounded by neon lights, bright colored phones, space lamps, pop icons and images, garden gnomes, vintage clothes and scents. A circle of loyal friends and customers started to frequent the shop dreaming a world full of new colors. Fiorucci was the first fashion brand to revisit a classic look with a fresh new pop touch. The two Victorian chubby cherubs became the internationally recognized emblem of the brand and they were printed in series on t-shirts, bags, accessories and household items.

In 1976 Fiorucci opened his first flagship store on 59th Street in New York. The store soon became a cult place of the city, attended by leading representatives of the avant garde style of the time. One of its fun was Andy Warhol, who celebrated at the boutique his revolutionary magazine, ‘Interview’.

In 1977 in Manhattan something happens that would have became legendary: Studio 54 was opened in NY and Elio Fiorucci was commissioned to treat the Opening Ceremony. The elite of the international jet-set was present and from that moment the people never stopped animating the crazy nights of the club.

In 1982 the French company named Dupont launched a new material: Lycra. Elio Fiorucci shuffled it with denim to create the first stretch jeans of history: practical, feminine and seductive. An authentic revolution.

In 2003 after having sold the store in Galleria, Elio renewed the brand, creating the project “Love Therapy”: a line of colorful, ironic clothing that he chose to represent with two dwarves similar to Snow White’s friends.

The geniture

According to Grazia Bordoni, Fiorucci was born at 10:15 CET the 10th of June 1935. I rectified the time of birth by a direction of Sun to the opposition of Mars. Mars is the malefic against hairesis and it is configured in the nativity with the Sun, the Apheta,

Temperament, complexion and manners

The Ascendent is in the first degrees of Virgo so Mercury rules it by domicile, exaltation and term. The Lord of Horoscope, Mercury, is in Cancer. in The Moon is in Libra ruled by Saturn and Venus. The Moon is waxing so she has wet and hot qualities and she is applying to Venus and Mercury. Moreover Moon is going to perfect a conjunction with Mars. So the Ptolemaic Lord of Temperament are Venus and Mercury.  Therefore the temperament is Sanguine. Venus, being occidental, is hot and wet and gives shapely, graceful features and a luxurious look. Mercury, occidental and retrograde, gives more dryness and thin lineaments. The rising sign of Virgo, a human sign, confers him a rather tall, well proportionated body.

The Lord of the Soul or of manners is from the Moon and Mercury. Since Mercury is in Cancer and the Moon in Libra applying to Venus and Mercury, the Lord of the Soul is Venus with the secondary influence of Mars.  Ptolemy says:

Allied with Venus, in honourable positions, Mars makes his subjects pleasing, cheerful, friendly, soft-living, happy, playful, artless, graceful, fond of dancing, erotic, artistic, imitative, pleasure-loving, able to secure themselves property,masculine, and given to misconduct in matters of love, but still successful, circumspect, and sensible, difficult to convict and discreet, furthermore passionate for both young men and young women, spendthrifts, quick-tempered, and jealous

The Professional Success

The Lord of Activity is Venus which is close to the Sun, visible, receiving the application of the Moon from Libra, its domicile. Moreover Venus is with Sirius, the brightest star in the sky, of nature of Jupiter and Mars, which gives “ambition and magnanimity” says Cardano. Ptolemy says:

If Venus rules action, she makes her subjects persons whose activities lie among the perfumes of flowers or of unguents, in wine, colours, dyes, spices, or adornments, as, for example, sellers of unguents, weavers of chaplets, innkeepers, wine-merchants, druggists, weavers, dealers in spices, painters, dyers, sellers of clothing

The Saturn is doryphoros to the Sun having rulership by triplicity and being configured by square. Though triplicity is a secondary dignity it still can give some honor , taking in count that Saturn is angular. Venus is doryphoros to the Moon since it is in the following degree of the Moon and it is Lord of the Moon. Moreover Venus is in almugea or idioprosopia or proper face with the Moon, having the same distant which separate their domiciles.So Venus is the planet which gives honor and dignity and it also is the Lord of Activity, signifying that fame and success come from his own work and profession.

The Lover of Women

Fiorucci-commercial

In the case of men, we investigate through Mars what is the disposition with respect to matters of love. In Fiorucci’s geniture Mars in Libra is in sextile to Venus in Leo. As Ptolemy says:

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.

So Fiorucci was very fond of women since both Venus and Mars are both evening star but Venus is in a masculine sign, Leo.
