Transcript of Astro News May 6th 2011 Neptune has moved to Pisces, the sign it rules just a few weeks ago. Neptune, the ancient god of the sea, feels most comfortable in his place deep in the Piscean ocean. But when Neptune is having issues with himself, namely, called a Neptune Square, in Astrology, it is considered one of the most notorious aspects. Everyone has to deal with this cycle in their early forties and that is why this Neptune square is dubbed the mid-life crisis aspect. The last time it happened in the United States’ chart was in April 24 1980 on the day when President Carter’s launched his failed Operation “Eagle Claw” which was supposed to rescue 52 Americans held captive at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran. The reason why I mention this is because as you can see from the dates, 1980-1983 was also the last time the US experienced a Saturn return. Whenever two aspects or cycles collide, the power of the patterns are felt much stronger.
The operation to rescue the American hostages in Iran, as we all know was disastrous, a word by the way that derives from Astrology – Dis (against) Astrous (stars). Eight helicopters were sent, out of which one crashed on the way, one turned back and another malfunctioned. The commanders on the scene requested Carter to abort the mission; Carter agreed but one other helicopters crashed into a plane resulting in the deaths of eight American servicemen. Carter’s presidency never recovered.
About 30 years after Carter’s failed operation, the United States is going through its 8th Saturn Return. On May 2nd 2011 1am Local Pakistan time, using the darkness of the new moon night, Operation Neptune Spear began. Because these two operations happened on the US Saturn return there are interesting parallels between the two military expeditions. I am sure Obama and his staff freaked out when one of the helicopters brushed against Bin Laden’s high compound wall and crashed. I bet they were wondering if history might be repeating itself. But the beautiful thing about Saturn, the rectifier, is that it helps us get out of patterns. So Obama “manned up” as Sarah Palin would have said, and true to the Leo he is, gave the command to continue the operation.
For many, the killing of Osama bin laden had more of a symbolic meaning than a military one. So if it is symbols we are talking about, let’s focus on Neptune. The operation to kill Bin Laden was named Neptune’s Spear. In the progressed chart of the USA for the night of the operation, we see that the only opposition (meaning war) is between Neptune and the wheel of fortune. Neptune is located in the house of self-worth. Probably related to the fact that the operation was a boost for American’s self confidence and trust in their armed forces and the Wheel of fortune is in the house of death and assassinations – giving success and fortune for the killing of the most wanted man in the world.
Progressed US Chart for May 2nd 2011
Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, the sign of religion and fanaticism as well as escapism.
These attributes describe Bin laden to the tea. He is a radical religious man who spent the last ten years of his life escaping. In addition, Bin Laden is a Pisces, ruled by Neptune. His body was given a sea burial. Hmm, considering the fact that Neptune is the god of the sea, I think there is a mythological as well as poetic justice to an end of a Piscean terrorist whose body returns home to the sea. Ashes to Ashes tears to the sea.
I am not sure the peace loving Dolphins are awfully happy his corpse was disposed in their realms. But since he was killed by a navy seal, who knows, maybe he will be lucky and reincarnate as a seal. Hmm…not sure. According to the laws of Karma as described by the sages of India, a murderer of masses cannot reincarnate as an evolved mamal such as a seal. He will have to start his evolutionary climb up starting with an insect or a reptile. More of the zoological future of Osama’s soul in a future Astro-News.
President Obama decided not to release the R rated photos of Bin Laden’s body. But I can predict with certainty that if Donald Trump asks him, he will indeed reveal the long version of the gory images.
Some people are questioning if Bin Laden was really killed in the recent raid. These people are often called Truthers and seem to have the same psychological profile as the Birthers still championed by Orly Taitz who insists that the birth certificate is a forgery. Orly Taitz, called the queen of birthers, believes that Obama “ is the most dangerous thing one can imagine, in that he represents radical communism and radical Islam: He was born and raised in radical Islam, all of his associations are with radical Islam, and he was groomed in the environment of the dirty Chicago mafia. Can there be anything scarier than that?” Hmm, Yes, Orly, you are far far scarier.
But you know what, seriously, I agree with the birthers. As an astrologer who sees birth certificate on a daily basis, I think that even if Obama was born in the USA it does not mean he is qualified to be the president of the Free World. We should insist on checking where he died as well. I propose to start the Deathers movement. A president of the U S of A should not only be born in the USA but should have also lived and died in the US during his or her past lifetime. So I propose having the Congress pass a mandatory law that would make every presidential nominee go through a past lifetime regression to make sure they were born and died on American soil in their previous reincarnation. That way, there is no doubt and people like Orly could sleep at night, god darn it, cause they deserve a good night rest.
