FEBRUARY 2012 NEW MOON - USA
Click on chart to enlarge.
DATA: February 21,
2012 @ 5:36 P.M. - Washington,
This New Moon takes place in the 7th house of allies, open
enemies and war in the sign Pisces, conjoined Neptune and opposing the
Ascendant...expose, expose, expose involving not only things of war but also of
international finance (Pisces on the 8th house cusp).
Pisces, the 12th sign of the zodiac, belongs to the element
water, hence is passive. It is a mutable
sign, comparable to water, mirroring like a lake in its environment, moved by
every motion near it. Belonging to the
third degree of emanation, it tends to become all things to all people. It is a feminine sign, listless and negative.
So we observe that our open enemy/ally, with whom America has co-dependency
(waning trine to a retrograde Saturn), who are intent upon war, have lost touch
with reality and are temporarily unclear of their direction. With Neptune
opposing the Ascendant, Americans can expect this open enemy/ally to tender
erroneous information to advance their own cause, which in this case involves
making war on another country. We can
expect the unexpected for which we will not be prepared, as said open enemy/ally
is likely to use underhanded tactics.
Deception will be the name of their game...and with Mercury, ruler of
the 10th house, in the 7th, collusion with those in the USA government. U.S.S. Liberty, anyone?
Mercury in Pisces, as mentioned, is opposition a retrograde
Mars, and speaks to this previously mentioned entity or entities as being
highly agitated, prone to impulsive actions and filled with a fair amount of
Jupiter is in Taurus in the 9th house of international
events, sextile the New Moon/Neptune and trine the Ascendant, acting as
reconciler to the energies. With Taurus
on the 10th house cusp it appears that a foreign nation seeks to become
prominent in the on-going drama. Among
countries, Taurus is said to rule Persia
(Iran), Asia Minor (Iraq, Syria,
Israel) and southern Russia.
Neptune, co-ruler of America's open enemy/ally, is 5* 47'
from a square to the Midheaven, an aspect given to an illusion of making
oneself a victim in order to gain others' sympathy...also known as negative
aggression, characteristic of Neptune.
Consequently, Americans may expect subversive behavior - an Act of
Deception - in order for this enemy/ally to gain their objectives.
A great man
in his pride
Confronting murderous men
Casts derision upon
Supersession of breath;
He knows death to the bone -
Man has created death.
