The ancient art/science of astrology is a tool with which people of Earth can improve the conditions of their lives. One branch - Mundane Astrology - is the science of the influence of the heavenly bodies as they affect the world - whether it be nations, cities, communities or any organization constituting an entity that functions under a common governing authority.

SYRIAN ARAB REPUBLIC
Click on chart to enlarge.
The chart of Syria has been progressed from February 1, 2012.Progressed Mars is conjunct natal Saturn in Gemini in the 9th house.The natal position of Mars is the 8th house...with Gemini on the 9th house cusp, the Syrian government strongly desires to make war with other nations but is caught in the Taurean 8th house, unable to be effective in its war-making propensities.Case in point:the June 1967 war with Israel.
Transiting Pluto will conjoin radix (natal) Sun @ 9* Capricorn 22' in the 3rd house - exact aspect - on March 14, 2012.Pluto will be within 2 degrees of orb of influence from January 3, 2012 through August 7, 2012 and then again from October 29, 2012 through March 15, 2013.It will make its second exact aspect on January 2, 2013.
Bashar-al-Assad, President of Syria since 2000, will be removed from office - one way or the other - during one of the above time periods.Progressed Mars conjoined natal Saturn in Gemini in the 9th house speaks of interference by foreign powers.Gemini rules the near neighborhood, as does Syria's Sun (representing Assad) in the 3rd house, that will be upheaved when transiting Pluto makes its demolition conjunction.In addition, Sagittarius is on the cusp of the natural neighborhood 3rd house, the sign that governs things of an international flavor, its ruler Jupiter holding sway in the 11th house of international gatherings and special interest groups.It is these that will take him down.
Jim Willie, in his January 11th essay: US Dollar Paper Tiger:"The USGovt has attempted to isolate Iran."(Not a surprise to those who follow astrology, as the USA Saturn opposes the Sun of Iran...ergo, blockages become the modus operandi of the USA government.)In any event, the downfall of Syria is part of the plan to isolate Iran.Apparently there will be no need to directly attack Iran...merely immobilize their allies, friends and neighbors.
Beware the Ides of March...prior to the slicing and dicing murder of Julius Caesar, the Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to Mars, planet of war.In the current era in which we live, it has been given a less festive connotation by the Bush/Cheney Regime and their Forever Wars, launched on the heels of the infamous false flag incident of September 11, 2001.Forever Wars that are continued by our Nobel Peace Prize president.One must wonder if the Regime hasn't morphed into the military complex and those who inhabit the White House act merely as a front so as not to reveal who is behind the curtain.
Transiting Mars will turn retrograde on January 24th conjoined the USA Neptune in its 9th house of things international, then square its radix Mars in the 7th house of open enemies...the USA Neptune/Mars being its signature for war.What a huge surprise the war-mongers will receive should they begin a campaign under a retrograde Mars.This is not to say that Syria won't take its lumps, for suffering via international intrigue is next at bat for them.
Be prepared for the unexpected, don't believe the reports of main stream news, keep your gas tanks in full position - and other things in full position, as well - which must remain unsaid due to NDAA. Above all, live to the utmost of your spirituality.
The shameful dream is past,
The subtle maze untrod:
We recognise at last
That war is not of God.
