Expo Milano 2015

expo2015_logoExpo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan, Italy, will host from May 1 to October 31, 2015. The Expo theme is food and it is going to be, as the organizers say, an occasion in which “stimulating each country’s creativity and promoting innovation for a sustainable future, Expo 2015 will give everyone the opportunity to find out about, and taste, the world’s best dishes, while discovering the best of the agri-food and gastronomic traditions of each of the exhibitor countries.”

The Expo can be an opportunity for the city of Milan and Italy to show the richness and quality of their food and to welcome the variety and diversity of food from all over the world. At the same time can be a sort of showroom for Italian products and maybe it will affect positively the Italian economy which at the moment is in a continuing stagnation. While some people are very optimistic and enthusiastic other ones are skeptic and think that will be only a waste of money and resources which will benefit only major industrial and economic international groups and national profiteers. Moreover during the construction works of the Expo area, buildings and national pavillions scandals have arisen due to delays, mismanagement, and mafia infiltrations.

Let’s have a look for the chart of the opening on the inaugural day planned for 1st May at 10 o’clock.

Expo Inauguration

The horoscope is in Cancer in Moon domicile, Jupiter exaltation, Venus triplicity and bound. The Medium Coeli is  in Pisces in Jupiter domicile, Venus exaltation, Venus triplicity and bounds of Mercury. The Moon is moving from Saturn applying to Jupiter. Here the Moon, Lord of the Ascendent applying to Jupiter, Lord of the supernal angle, is a good sign that the Expo will reach its goal. Jupiter is dignified by the secondary triplicity, being the nocturnal ruler of the fire triplicity, so is not peregrine but it has a quite weak dignity. Jupiter is in the second house indicating that the Expo will produce earnings. Venus the planet which has the most essential dignities over the Ascendent, the Medium Coeli, the Moon and actually over the the five aphetic points: Sun, Moon, Ascendent, Part of Fortune and Prenatal Syzygy, is in the XII house, peregrine, feralis and so It’s not in the position to express itself and indeed can be  counterproductive. Mercury is the Lord of the Chart, being dignified by domicile, secondary triplicity and term and being evening, occidental in the epicycle, in the succedent IX house.  Since Mercury has dignity in Medium Coeli and it is in the XI house which is the resource and helper of the X house Mercury can be a valid help to reach the success. But Mercury is opposing Saturn in the zodiac and in mundo and conjunct Mars in mundo. This is a very strong aspect. Mercury is besieged by the malefic Saturn and Mars so the actions will be unproductive and self-defeating. Mars and Mercury are also configured by a right square in mundo to Jupiter. Those aspects between Mercury, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter let us suppose that the actions will be vain and will bring discord, hatred, accusations and scandals. Moreover Saturn is with Arcturus and Antares, the Heart of Scorpio, stars of nature of Mars and Jupiter. Stade says about Saturn with Arcturus that is a sign of assets dissipation. So behind the Expo success will emerge the difficulties, efforts, costs  and scandals through which it has been realized and that will make clear the real value of the event.

The Dragon and the Moon

dragon The Total Lunar Eclipse on the 4th of April will be visible in most of North America, South America, Asia and parts of Australia. The Moon  will be in the sign of Libra and so, according to Ptolemy, the eclipse will affect China from which is visible. In fact Ptolemy says:

Bactriana, Casperia, and Serica are akin to Libra and Venus

Below the chart for Shanghai Lunar Eclipse April 2015 Moon is in Libra, in which Saturn is exalted, and in the bounds of Jupiter. The Moon is moving from a sextile with Jupiter to the syzygy with the Sun. The Moon is also in sextile in mondo with Jupiter and Saturn. Saturn also trines the Sun in mundo.  Actually the aspects by which Saturn is configured with the Luminaries are quite peculiar: they are equicrure o isosceles aspects in mundo. The equicrure aspect in mundo or equicruria in mundo is present when the horary distance between each planet and the angle is equal. Here Saturn is distant from the Horoscope as much as the Moon;  also Saturn is distant according to the horary motion from the subterranean pivot as much as the Sun. As Placidus de Titi says, this identical condition compared to the  great circles of the local sphere is a very strong figure. Mars in detriment in Taurus is feralis, that is, free from any aspect with other planets. Mars is falling from the western angle but it almost in the five equatorial degree from the angle that Ptolemy advises to consider. Mars is also Lord of the Horoscope. So Saturn have dominion over the syzygy. But Jupiter participate so he soothes the harsh influx of Saturn. Since the Moon is in the constellation of Virgo, which is a human figure the eclipse can affect the  human beings and because of the lordship of Saturn it can cause illness and death. Also Ptolemy says that the constellation of Virgo, being  winged, can signify the volatiles and so poultry can be affected by a disease which in turn can concern also men. Since the Star Canopus in the ship Argo constellation is setting on the occidental horizon the event can be a shipwreck or a tempest or a river flood or even pollution in the water and fish deaths. Being Saturn occidental to the Moon the event affected will be great. The eclipse starts at 18:15 and ends at 21:44, lasting for 3 hours and 29 minutes. So the event will last for 3 months and a half and will occure between Aprile and beginning of September.
