The attack to Gaza

Israel who started the attack is Mars ruler of the Ascendant while Venus signifies Palestinian people.

– Israeli warplanes pounded the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Saturday, killing at least 229 people in one of the bloodiest days for the Palestinians in 60 years of conflict with the Jewish state.

Hamas vowed revenge including suicide bomb attacks in the “cafes and streets” of Israel, as Israeli air strikes continued late into the night. Israel said the offensive would continue as long as necessary and that it may also involve land forces.GAZA (Reuters)

Let’s give a quick look to the chart for the moment of the attack.

Israel who started the attack is Mars ruler of the Ascendant while Venus, ruler of the 7th house, signifies  Palestinian people.

Israel started the attack in the morning, at the time children  generally come back from school, so it is a day chart.

Mars – Israel –  is very strong in his exaltation and at MC, but being against his hairesis – a night planet at the MC in a day chart- is very dangerous and highly malefic.
It is oriental but still combust to the Sun and it will not visible till 20 th March 2009, when it will have its heliacal rising.

Moreover Sarapione (how do you call in English?) of Alexandria “Combust planets are weak because the Sun withdrew their strength and then it  will return  this strength in due time, and it will be benefic for Jupiter and Venus, malefic for Saturn and Mars, when they are in effective places.

Being invisible Mars means occult things and events and the same the  Moon, and events will last in time because of the New Moon.

On the other hand Palestinians are Venus, which is the star traditionally ruling Muslims.

Venus is in on the cusp of the 12th house so their  war is a clandestine one. It has no special dignity, just a reception with Saturn, ruler of the 10th, 11th and 12th house: I believe because these kind of attacks  – where children and people without any link with terrorism die- generally don’t like to the international community.

But Saturn is falling in the 6th house, I’m not sure it could help very much….

Venus is applying to Mars in 8 degrees so I think there will be a confrontation   between the parts.

  1. Hello Margherita,

    This is just one set of aspects, but if you look at the Grand Conjunction chart for Jerusalem and Ghazza (there is only on degree difference in MC and Asc.)The Moon GC was at 3 Aries 16 and Lord 8, the 8th house cusp at 1 Cancer 47. The Moon would then in your chart be on the Ascencant and square the Moon/Mars conjunction. Mercury in this chart would be trine the GC, Saturn/Jupiter. The Moon was in the 4th house during the GC, so we can see that then and now, the issue is land. Mercury of the GC chart was at 28 Gemini which would put its antiscion on the IC of your chart. Unfortunately it is not Mercury itself because then peace talks would have a chance, an antiscion is only a shadow of. Instead Mars L8 of this chart conjuncts Moon L8 of the GC chart. Neither Israel or the Hamas profit from war, both sides know this, the losers again are the people on both sides.

    best regards,

  2. Many thanks for your notes.

    Obviously the issue here is the land. Ruler of the radix 4th house is Cancer and the Moon is detrimented in Capricorn. She is leaving the conjunction of Mars but she is falling in the forge of the Sun: she lools like besieged – in fact Venus and Moon, being moist in nature suffer a lot from combustion.

    And as always- you were right to remember us- the only losers will be civilians of both side.

    I would also have a question regarding the attack on Gaza – where did you get the exact time of commencement? I was searching for this information from 27.12. on, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Then, I found your blog and voila! – the chart was there and the exact moment of the attack.
    Best wishes,
