For any astrologer, in order to have any hope of answering this question, we need to consult the heavens; the method of analysis of mundane astrology.
As Paris is the capital of the nation of France, the current horoscope used by astrologers is that of the Fifth Republic; seal affixed at 6:30pm, 6th October 1958 in Paris, France. This new constitution arose following colonial desire for independence and the resulting decolonization and emigration to France; to the extent that 1 in 6 current Parisians can trace their cultural background to Africa.
This is the base for our enquiry into the terrorist attacks of Black Friday, 13th November 2015.
The following is an astrology enquiry and as such it is pseudo-scientific in origin. We use classic astrology texts for interpretation with the charts generated according to western astrology.
In order to get an understanding of the Fifth Republic and what it stood for, we generate a snapshot of the heavens on that date with planets and asteroids that we believe are likely relevant to our enquiry.
- Paris #3317 – capital of France
- Arabia #1157 – reason for the new constitution
- Martir #1582 – martyrdom
- Fanatica #1589 – fanaticism
- Isis #42 – ISIS radical organisation
The Sun at 12:57°Libra represents the date on the calendar; positioned in the zodiac of Libra – social egalitarianism. Egalitarian doctrines maintain that all humans are equal in fundamental worth or social status.
The planet Mercury at 13:52°Libra is symbolic of communication. -Following amendments to the constitution, the French language became the official language. Egalitarian principles apply. It is when we note that the Sun and Mercury are conjunct in the heavens; in the 6th house of ethics and morals – this equates with the astrology term ‘bombast’ (bombastic). To speak French is to be French. There is no separation.
The planet Venus at 3:47°Libra is equally bombast Ceres at 3:23°Libra, the largest and first-named of the asteroids. This is indeed benevolent, as Venus-Ceres in Libra is very much about beauty.
The Moon at 21°Cancer is symbolic of her people, plus being in the 4th house she is in home-base. Cancer is the zodiac sign representing security. France has more than her fair share of security issues over the years. It is when we note the red lines on the chart, we know that there is a square aspect of 90° between the Moon and the Lunar nodal axis at 22:20°Aries-Libra; off-sided.
Note: As this is is a crime profiling blog, we seek weaknesses in particular. The Lunar Nodal axis in this chart for the Fifth Republic is in a particularly un-favourable degree. If we were to ask the Serbian astrologers, the 22nd degree is the most in-auspicious position to be in. Assassinations will likely abound in public places creating trauma for the French people (square Moon).
The Lunar Nodal Axis also has the asteroid Ixion#28978 bombast at 22:52°Libra in the 7th house of public relationships. Anyone whom is familiar with Greco/Roman mythology will tell you that this Ixion character represents murderous traps.
The next inauspicious aspect in this chart and in the 1st house is Black Moon Lilith/Mean apogee at 25:24°Aries and exact (bombast again) the asteroid Arabia 25:55°Aries. Certainly this can be seen as a predominance of African peoples, however Black Moon Lilith is symbolic of the greatest weakness in the chart; the weakest link.
The French colonials whom settled from Africa were able to form enclaves and continue their culture separate to mainstream western society. In hindsight this may be viewed as a weakness in the structure of the immigration policy in France. However this is not for an astrologer to comment on.
The planet Mars in the second house (assets) at 2:25°Gemini is square aspect the dwarf planet Pluto at 3:20°Virgo in the 6th house. Mars being the activator and Pluto; power. This is the preparation to defend their assets, however it crosses and interferes with the public image of the nation – Moon square the horizon line.
It is when we turn to the latest attack in Paris, we can interpret the atmosphere on that horrific Friday night in Paris. That 22degrees features strongly once again with the ascendant/horizon axis at 22:36°Cancer (security breach).
- Asteroid Paris#3317 is at the ascendant at 23:53°Cancer. The means that the asteroid was just under the horizon and entered into sight to witness the horror just seconds later.
- Paris is also square asteroid Eris#136199 (trouble and strife) at 22:35°Aries from the 10th house of the public arena. If this is not an early warning of expecting trouble at this time, I don’t know what is.
- Transiting planet Uranus (rebellion) is immediately overhead, plus bombast the asteroid Arabia#1157. The threat of bombing is extreme.
- Uranus is also the conduit of energy of a Yod formation with 18:49°Virgo planet Jupiter (inflating anything) and 19:22°Scorpio (secretive) and Mercury (communication). The communication on this occasion is the act of that which is also symbolic of Uranus; bombing.
It is when we bring the two snapshots together against the common background of the zodiac that we get the detail of the incident. Makes us wonder why France doesn’t have an astrologer on the payroll. (No I’m not putting my hand up – Je ne parle pas français.)
The inner chart (blue text) is the chart for France that we are familiar with as above and the outer chart (red text) is at the time recorded as per wikipedia for the first of the attacks in Paris (as per the second chart above). Method This is when we see the tension between the two events.
- Transiting asteroid Eris (trouble and strife) is bombast the Nodal axis of France conjunct the ascendant. Plus we see what is behind this trouble – Uranus bombast Arabia. No prizes for guesses what that is.
- Transiting Black Moon Lilith at 8:58°Libra is bombast the asteroid Isis at 8:46° in the chart for France PLUS Vertex in France’s chart; 7:40°Libra. This identifies a significant weakness for ISIS to operate in France.
- Transiting Isis 13:55°Libra is exact France’s Sun-Mercury; radicalism is at her very core.
- Transiting Black Moon Lilith is very close behind Sun-Mercury at 8:58°Libra – a weak link yet to be revealed.
Note: By this I do not intend to infer that the nation of France has a significant relationship with the radical group of ISIS. Those whom are familiar with French society would be better able to interpret this aspect.
Is it that the atmosphere of freedom/equality/brotherhood of mankind has allowed this radical fanaticism to foster?
As the plotters fled to Brussels, Belgium; neighbour of France, the asteroid Vesta in her symbolic role of ‘keeping the home fires burning’ extends to a a place of refuge/hiding, we generate a national chart for Belgium with similar asteroids. We note that Belgium has also been a country that colonised African states.
- Vesta#4 at 16:27°Aries reflects the asteroid Arabia#1157 at 17:25°Libra – a nest
- The nation’s Mars at 22:29°Pisces is not in a strong position, however it reflects Venus by opposition at 21:27°Virgo – a team player when needed, with Venus in her role as ‘peer group’.
Knowing this, it is likely a purposeful act to not rout the trouble, more a case of monitor carefully which I am sure law enforcement does. We note this when we view the Belgian national tension in relation to the Paris attacks.
In the following chart, we note that all the action is on the right hand side of the bi-wheel; caring for others.
In order to view the bi-wheel, on this occasion we use the perspective of the time of the attacks in Paris, 9:16pm, 13th November 2015. In red (Belgium) planet Neptune is at the horizon line at the descendant (exit point). This is our first astrology indication that Belgium will be used as a place of hiding.
- transiting (blue) Uranus-Arabia at the midheaven is square (red) Neptune 20:01°Capricorn and reflecting the country’s own asteroid Arabia at the IC – there will be no hiding place in Belgium for radicals that cannot be routed.
