US launches new ops against Taliban 9.15.10

For the first time, US troops have launched major operations in the region that spawned the Taliban in the Zahri district of southern Aghanistan.

Well, unfortunately for horoscope viewing, my software program never willingly gives me locations in Afghanistan where the ops began at 4:00 am local time, September 15, 2010. But the launching occurred at ‘about 7:30 pm edt’ at the Pentagon last evening (Sept 14) and a peek at the chart shows 28Pis47 rising with Uranus 28Pis53 Rx.

Uranus on ASC indicates an ability to cope with the unexpected yet this Uranus is retrograde. Perhaps the unexpected with be delayed or not definitively dealt with. That’s nothing new in the US theater of war in the Middle East, of course, plus chart-ruler Jupiter the General is at critical or crisis degree: 29Pis15 – but also retrograde, not the most strengthening picture for Jupiter the General’s war efforts.

At Midheaven (the goal point of a chart) is 29Sag20 with Sag also being ruled by Jupiter Rx. ’30Sag’ = “The Pope Blessing the Faithful” and I suppose he does though it’s of no personal interest to me. What this could mean to the US war machine is beyond the scope of this brief post.

Interestingly, Sun 22Vir03 gives a Sabian Symbol for ’24Virgo’ = “A Lion Tamer Rushes Fearlessly into the Circus Arena” which is very descriptive of our Sun worshiping culture of the West rushing in to the wilderness of the Zahri territory, described as “the heart of darkness.”

(Leo, sign of the lion, rules the heart and spine, as you know.)

Then there’s the Moon @ 18Sag56; the symbol of a Crescent Moon signifies the East. “19Sag” = “Pelicans, Disturbed by People, Move Their Habitats” and my thoughts are that the Taliban will simply move their encampments in order to fight another day and are already vamoosed: the Moon in the chart was out-of-bounds when the ‘major operations’ were launched.

Wonder if the US military knows where all the tunnels are?

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“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…
