Sathya Sai Baba is gone, tornadoes came to Alabama, William & Kate had their Royal Wedding, and the beatification of John Paul II happened!
Bin Laden’s assassination has brought extremes of thinking and further stirred an already boiling world-wide pot! Pluto in Capricorn has brought changes in long time regimes, and isn’t quitting. Though bin Laden didn’t ‘rule’ for a long time, he made world-wide impact as being thought to be the power behind the 911 attack, being so immune to capture, and simply being tall among men, confirmed 6′ 4″ tall. Uranus, planet of surprises, in fiery Aries, is coming closer and closer into its square (challenge) with Pluto, of death and healing, and will continue to be in this square until Mar 16, 2015, making 7 exact aspects! This aspect will continue to topple governments and powerful leaders. And, the Phoenix will rise from its own ashes.
Deciphering the moment of death is a challenge in this kind of situation. LivingMoonAstrology.com says ‘The American commando stormed the suburban home where Bin Laden was living on May 2, 2011, at around 1 am local time, according to a witness [Sohaib Athar] twitting the events in real time.’ Wikipedia says ‘ At approximately 1:00 a.m. local time (20:00, May 1 UTC), the SEALs breached the compound’s walls using explosives and attacked the compound’s structures and the compound’s guards opened fire.’ Also, ‘”The encounter with bin Laden lasted only seconds,” according to Politico, and took place during “the last five or 10 minutes” of the raid.’ CNN reported ‘A firefight was under way for most of the 40  minutes that U.S. Special Operations forces were in the compound, as the team encountered resistance from bin Laden and three other men, a senior defense official said. The official said the forces had to fight their way through the first floor of the three-story building, where two adult males lived. Bin Laden and his family lived on the second and third floors, and they were cleared last, with bin Laden killed in the last five or 10 minutes of the siege, the official said.’ But, the HeraldNews.SunTime.com says ‘But bin Laden refused to give himself up. That’s when he was shot in a bedroom — only minutes into the raid — ending a 10-year manhunt.’ Wiki further says ‘The raid was intended to take 30 minutes. All told, the time between the team’s entry in and exit from the compound was 38 minutes. Time in the compound was split into exchanging gunfire with the defenders and searching the compound for information.’
Maybe it took them 10 minutes to have his wife ID him, do the photo ID comparisons, body bag him and transport him to the helicopter and leave? That puts us back to 1:28 AM. I put up a chart for May 2, 2011, at 1:28 AM in Abbottabud, Pakistan.
Bin Laden’s death chart Moon is at 25 Aries. It connects with 4 factors in bin Laden’s Mar 10, 1957 sunrise birth chart [birth time unknown]. 1) It same degree semi sextiles his sunrise Mars (with South Node) at 25 Taurus – didn’t surrender. Mars is the planet of Aries, so this is a stronger semi sextile than usual. 2) The Moon trines his Pluto at 28 Leo, forming a Grand Trine – smooth flowing, with the Galactic Center at 27 Sagittarius! He was a man connected with the destinies of nations, even when he was in a cave! Perhaps it was good it went quickly. I think there will be more to the story in time. Perhaps good will come of it in as yet unforeseeable ways. 3) It inconjuncts his Jupiter 27 Virgo that squares the Galactic Center, schisms between religions, family and funerals – he was hated by many, ‘buried’ at sea, and his son was killed. 4) It sextiles his sunrise Moon 27 Gemini, which was opposite the Galactic Center. It was through his courier, Gemini, to his home, Moon, that revealed his location. In some charts the Moon rules the People, in others it is the women and children, your family and home. Certainly, we are hearing amazing points of view about the event. The Moon is a fast moving factor, so it wouldn’t be expected, but in both charts, the Royal Wedding and this one, the Moons are connected with the Galactic Center, making international news. Both of these events then, are connected with the Mayan Sacred Tree/Crossroads of Dec 21, 2012 calendar end/turnover, since the Sacred Tree center occurs only 6 degrees of the Galactic Center!
The six planet Aries stellium is formidable. This is not a peacemaking combination, but a charging war! Osama was shot twice, and it was done. The whole operation took only 38 minutes. The Aries Moon is Void of Course like in William & Kate’s Royal Wedding chart! Astrologers would rarely choose a VOC Moon for an event, yet here again, we have a successful enterprise. None of the horary astrology ‘exception’ rules apply to this chart as they did in William & Kate’s, but six planets in Aries?! That could ram through just about anything! And once a Taurus gets moving…. True, there is the other Void of Course caveat. Compared to ‘nothing will come of it’ – that would be good if there are no further attacks/retaliations on America, ‘there’s nothing to stop it’ was exactly what happened! Perhaps it’s a bit like the retrograde rule – if you are experienced with a matter, you will usually succeed during a retrograde.
Specifically, Mars doubly powerful in its own sign, conjunct lucky Jupiter, is like a powerhouse! Mars is fast, fervent, focused, loves machines and weapons and fights, is especially courageous if the underdog. They did lose that helicopter though. Uranus of flight in a breaking square with Pluto endings. Then they killed the helicopter with an explosion, Uranus, to obliterate it for security reasons, Pluto and Pluto. That Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Aries has only happened two times before since 1900, Jan 6, 1940, and June 16, 1975. This one was the day after the Royal Wedding, and the day of bin Laden’s assassination!
The Sun is at 11 degrees Taurus, in a life force breaking square with the Ascendant 15 degrees Aquarius. In a manner, the bird is set free. Taurus may be too slow and low in the chart to recover from this rift in the organization. The Royal Wedding chart Sun also squares the Ascendant but in different signs! The Ascendant/Descendants are reversed! Theirs is 5 Leo Ascending while bin Laden’s death chart is 15 Aquarius Ascending. I said, ‘With the Sun square the Ascendant, how you appear to others, they may not always look good.’ The Sun is leaving the sextile with Chiron, marriage, and the trine with Pluto, wealth. No more. And the Sun has moved up to inconjunct Saturn, another kind of life force weakening/breaking aspect, often not good for your health. I said, ‘Sun inconjunct Saturn, can be sad news at times.’
Venus and Mercury have moved just beyond the opposition with Saturn in Libra that was in the Royal Wedding chart making communications an issue, or perhaps creating and keeping a bridge of connection. In this case it is good there was no connection; he never saw them coming! Mercury has moved into conjunction with Jupiter, so the news is BIG!
Why the burial at sea? Neptune the planet of the sea is in its own sign Pisces now, the sign of the sea. 29 Pisces is on the 2nd cusp, the part of the chart that has to do with one’s body. 29 Pisces is the last degree of the last sign of the Zodiac, conjunct the 7 Weeping Sisters, the Pleiades. The End. Osama, himself a Pisces, has gone ‘home.’ Saturn is in the 8th of death, and rules the 12th of end of Spirit. The usual options were blocked. The ritual performed was probably the best they could do to show respect to a formidable warrior, stop further damage. Pluto in Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, suggests a death of necessity, to end the past with a significant message. Perhaps enough time has passed that he won’t be made a martyr.
Wishing you peace and healing no matter what your circumstances are. I had a friend who was in the towers, survived 911, but her Spirit was struck. I pray, in time, losses and revenge will dissolve to forgiveness. Blessed be.
