I’m posting the chart for the end of the war in Iraq or at least this phase, the combat phase. For some reason I can not get the stupid chart to load. But anyway I’ll just delineate it for everyone and give a link to a place one can go to get the chart for free if you want it.
Interesting to note that there was a grand fire trine with Sun in the chart’s 1st house, Moon in the 5th and Eris is completing it in the 9th. Positive energy for us pulling out and restoring some faith abroad about our intentions and helping to heal our image, and good will (5th house). If one looks at this chart (which I calculated for about 3:51 AM Baghdad, Iraq time) at first glance (and without Eris) it doesn’t really look monumental. But I believe this chart actually confirms the idea of Eris being the ruler of martial strategy and the sign of Libra. The fact that is the most elevated heavenly body in the chart at the top of the chart going from the 9th (foreign cultures and countries) and approaching the 10th indicates exactly the way we decided to get out of the country, under the cover of night without huge fanfare.
The fact that Mars, Venus and Saturn in the 3rd house all in Libra (Venus and Mars in tight conjunction with Saturn part of the stellium in a looser way) also a main feature of this chart, tell the story of us exiting in a non-confrontational way again under the cover of night and in the most harmonious way possible, in a very rational, orderly and sneaky way. Again showing the power of Eris – her ability to use psychology, the element of surprise and rational planning to win against her enemies or competitors. She doesn’t let them see her coming, like a great strategist she evaluates the situation uses everything she has and attacks in an unsuspected way using surprise to her advantage.
I did look at this chart as compared to the US signing of the constitution chart as well to see what impact this will have at home, especially in the financial sector. Pluto has again (irregardless of us pulling out in Iraq) returned to 2 degrees Capricorn, a bad sign for our economy.
As Capricorn continues to hit this point over the next couple of years either business will be reformed, including banking – or I should say especially banking, and we will rise out of the ashes to a new economic paradigm for the better or if nothing is done and we continue down the path we have been on for the past 25 or more years and we will find ourselves waking not just to this new form of a Depression, but in a country that has more in common with those countries we would call “developing” than with our European cousins. I hope we can be brave enough, inventive enough and wise enough to reinvent ourselves. In general America and people in general are remarkably resilient and often have to get a lesson several times before it sinks in and something is done. So take heart any of you who have unique and inventive approaches to business, commerce, banking, technology for you shall rule the new world.
Best wishes to all,
Oh and to see the chart of Iraq go onto http://www.astro.com under the extended chart selection, put in the time I gave of 3:51 AM August 19, 2010 Baghdad, Iraq and highlight all the extra celestial objects.
