The fire of Notre Dame in Paris


Bonatti, Treatise VII, On elections/house IV, chapter 6: on the destruction of constructed buildings

Venus ruler of the Ascendant is in the cadent sixth house (the ineffective house where Mars rejoices), in aversion with the Ascendant.  Saturn, who rules Libra by exaltation, is strong in the fourth house, together with the malefic South Node, of Mars and Saturn nature.
The Ascendant is in an airy sign, as Bonatti states, and the Ascendant ruler is matutine (Bonatti says western, but Venus and Mercury have their best in the occidental/vespertine side).

The Virgo Moon is besieged by the malefics: separating from the Sun (which is a natural malefic for her) and applying to Mars, the malefic out of sect. She is cadent from the Sun (it is in the sixth house from the Sun in Aries) as Bonatti again wants.

In the ninth house of religion, churches and Christian faith Mars is with the brilliant of Taurus, Aldebaran, the beibenia of Mars and Venus nature: its colour is fiery red and its stones are ruby and garnet. Aldebaran as all the hearts of the fixed signs gives riches and opulence but it is violent and destroying.
