Jude's Threshold

A Tapestry Blog of Astrology, Politics, Art, and Social Concerns

Just how funky is Astrology?

As it turns out, Astrology can be pretty funky yet practically approached in the mundane, political realm simultaneously!

The number of Astrology blogs has increased tremendously since my first Political Astrology blog went live in October 2005 (Stars Over Washington is almost 4 years old!)

So naturally, it’s become something of a marathon to keep up with the ones you’re aware of and benefit from, much less the ones you’ve yet to discover, no matter how you try. Even with feeds it’s difficult to stay on top of article reading and their excellent chart delineations.

This morning my SO’W blog was privileged to receive a comment from ‘Funkstar’ who writes the Funk Astrology Blog from the UK.

‘Funkstar’ gave details for an Iran natal chart she uses which is set for the Ayatollah Khomeini’s return to Iran after the overthrow of the Shah: Feb 1, 1979, 9:30 am IRDT, Tehran, with 3Ari37 as the ASC and Moon rising @ 7Ari01.

The Sabian Symbol for this Moon (the people), ‘8Ari’ is: “A large woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind.”

But as Funkstar (whom I assume to be Marina of the Funk Astrology Blog) says in her comment, transit Pluto in early Capricorn is now conjunct this chart’s Midheaven 2Cap06 (Mc) – and I note that this is the only one of three charts for *Iran that places plutonic, nuclear-related Pluto on an angle – now.

Mc is, of course, the most public spot in any chart, thus the revelation of a 2nd nuke facility. Are there more?

Given the current Iran nuclear facility revelations at Qom and the Iran-US stand-off on these matters, I’d say the ‘Khomeini returns’ chart is a very useful map for timing of current events, wouldn’t you?

~:~

*Two other oft-used charts for Iran:
1. Feb 11, 1979 3:00 pm IRDT, Tehran when Khomeini proclaimed the Islamic Republic; ASC 7Can09; Marjorie Orr gives this chart in her book, ‘The Astrological History of the World’ as timing for “victory proclaimed in Islamic Revolution’;

2. April 1, 1979 3:00 pm IRDT, Tehran, ASC 17Leo17; as given in Celeste Teals’ book, ‘Eclipses.’

So..which natal chart to use for Iran? The one that ‘works’ because transits to it correctly time events!

Do you have a preferred birth chart for Iran?

  1. Wow! thanks for the link Jude, only just found this article. Marina and I are separate though. I am in Australia and Marina is in the UK, though we are working at spending more time in the same timezone.

    I just got back from a break after missing all the news for nearly 2 weeks. That suicide bombing earlier in the week in Iran showed good results again for the chart with 3 Aries rising.

    • Thanks for clarifying your whereabouts – i admit i was confused as to who was writing what! Yes, the 3 Aries rising chart for Iran seems very applicable to all that’s going on now.

      Glad you’re back, you’re welcome for the link, and thanks a bunch for commenting here,

      Jude (now get to work! ;p)

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
