Istanbul Nightclub Attack:
Tragedy struck very early in the morning on January 1, 2017 at a New Year’s Eve party at an Istanbul nightclub (Reina nightclub). The attack occurred at about 1:30 AM local time. Thirty-nine people were killed and at least 69 others were injured in the attack. ISIS is taking credit for it. The chart for the event shows the Jupiter/Uranus opposition on the ASC/DEC axis with Libra on the Ascendant. Transiting Pluto (death) is on the IC (conditions on the ground) and conjunct asteroid Icarus, and transiting Mars (gun fire) and Neptune (deception, confusion, and alcohol) are in the fifth house of entertainment and entertainment venues. They conjoin asteroid Pallas Athena (the attack was clearly planned) and oppose the 9/01/16 eclipse point.
Mercury turns stationary direct.
Transiting Mercury turns stationary direct very early on Sunday morning this weekend (on January 8, 2017). Communications issues progress more smoothly and misunderstandings can be cleared up soon after that - might take another day or two. You should have enough information to make important decisions soon. All major planets will be transiting in direct motion.
United flight 837 took off from San Francisco International Airport at 11:36 AM PST on November 28 bound for Tokyo. Shortly after takeoff, one of the 747’s four engines burst into flames. The plane circled the airport, dumped excess fuel into the ocean outside of Monterey (unfortunately) and landed back at SFO at 1:36 PM safely. There were no injuries. The astrological chart for takeoff at SFO shows transiting Mars on the Ascendant. Transiting Jupiter was also trining the Ascendant in this chart.
December 7, 2016 was the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack, which brought the United States into WWII.
In drawing up the astrological chart for the attack, we find the Ascendant on Capricorn and in opposition to Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun in the USA's natal chart. Asteroid Icarus is rising (and, conjunct the Ascendant). Astrologer Al H. Morrison describes the effects of this asteroid this way: "Abrupt triumph and downfall. Like running into a pothole the size of a delivery truck." Transiting Mars is on the IC (bottom of the chart) showing the bombing and the fires on the ground. The Sun is in the twelfth house of death and loss and opposed by transiting Jupiter. The loss of life was enormous. The Moon (the people) is conjunct transiting Pluto (death).
