THE CYCLE OF VENUS AND MARS

Recurrence cycles are part of the mundane astrologers toolbox. That's because what happens celestially is so often mirrored terrestrially. This year features an important recurrence cycle of Earth's closest planetary neighbours, Venus and Mars.

Venus and Mars represent the polarity of love and conflict. They are the archetypes of war and peace. They come together three times in 2015. This triple union is part of a longer 32-year cycle dating back to 1983. That cycle began on February 19 and ended October 26. This triple play began on February 22 and will end November 3. Time traveling back to 1983 should bring some interesting correspondences.

It was 1983 when Americans became a lot more aware of the existence of Australia. It came through the competition of Mars, with the crew of Australia II wresting the America’s Cup away from the Newport Yacht club for the first time in 132 years. It was preceded by arty Venus and Men At Work hitting number one twice on the US Billboard charts with Who Can It Be Now and Down Under, the fourth biggest selling record of 1983.

So perhaps it's not so much of a surprise that an Aussie athlete called Jarryd Hayne should be turning heads on the Gridiron fields, less than a year after Iggy Azalea's Venusian 'Fancy' topped the Billboard charts. Iggy became the only artist since the Beatles to have number one and two simultaneously. But beauty and the beast Venus and Mars played an even more important role when it came to war and peace in 1983.

A WORLD ON THE BRINK

In 1983 the Cold War reached its worst red alert since the 1962 showdown between Khrushchev and Kennedy. It began on the evening of March 25 with a nationwide televised address by the US President Ronald Reagan. He was unveiling an ambitious antimissile plan code named the Strategic Defense Initiative. The press coined it 'Star Wars'.

Missile shields had been off the table in the nuclear race. The logic being that the nuclear deterrent itself was sufficient to scare either side from pressing the button. MAD, or mutually assured destruction, was an unspoken understanding. Reagan's move was dangerously changing the balance. The Soviet leader Yuri Andropov , sped up the arms race, fearing the American leader was engineering a pre-emptive strike. All which led to a tragic accident and a narrow escape from a global holocaust.

FLIGHT 007

The accident came when Korean Airline Flight 007 drifted hundreds of miles off course, well into Russian airspace. It happened at the same time that American surveillance planes were conducting reconnaissance missions on the border of Russian airspace. Flight 007 was en route from Anchorage to Seoul but faulty controls saw it drift hundreds of miles off course, toward the Kamchatka Peninsula. At 15.51 UT, on September 1 the plane, with 269 on board, entered restricted airspace.

The Soviets scrambled interceptor jets when it seemed to be ignoring repeated warnings to leave. When Flight 007 again re-entered the no fly zone, Soviet commanders ordered it be taken out of the skies. The first missile detonated at 18.26.02 UT followed by a second and minutes later the aircraft began a slow descent, finally crashing into the sea.

There were no survivors. The Soviets were uncooperative in the international search, preferring to launch their own investigation, and blocking their territorial waters. The tensions between the nations ratcheted up another notch. What followed could have been mutually assured destruction.

It was three weeks later and tensions still on a knife edge when Lieutenant Colonel Stanislav Petrov began his midnight watch. He had been summoned at the last minute to replace a sick comrade. Petrov was situated in an underground bunker, in a forest one hundred miles from Moscow. He was monitoring a missile radar system.

It was the command centre of the Soviet early warning satellite network. The officer was barely minutes into his shift when the red alert siren sounded. Petrov startled, stared at his screen. An intercontinental missile was heading to the Soviet Union from the USA. The response was to be an immediate counter attack, as time was of the essence.

With the Cold war tensions at breaking point, he waited. Petrov sensed something was wrong. He reasoned that if the US were to strike they would have to do so with a hundred missiles. The warning siren sounded again and the radar signaled another four missiles. With 120 waiting men for his command Petrov held fast that there was a mysterious malfunction. He was right.

That moment – that human judgement – shortly after midnight on September 26 1983, averted a nuclear holocaust. It wasn't the only near thing that day. Russian cosmonauts escaped what would have been certain death by fleeing from the Soyuz rocket pad seconds before the entire launch complex exploded. Australians wouldn't have known much about either. They awoke celebrating an historic victory in the America’s Cup. Prime Minister Bob Hawke called for a national holiday.

That was 32 years ago and the whole world should have been celebrating the near miss. Venus and Mars were conjunct in Leo. They will be again this Tuesday - September 1. Back then lucky Jupiter joined the aerial planet of Uranus – god of the skies. The conjunction was right to the minute when Stanislsav Petrov got it right. In his 1941 classic Combination of Stellar Influences astrologer Reinhold Ebertin sums the Jupiter/Uranus combination up in three words. He called it the 'thank god position'.

This year Malaysian MH-17 was shot from the skies, flying over a war zone, by a Russian built BUK missile system. The tensions between Russia and the USA have brought another Cold War. Provocative military exercises are carried out by both sides.

In 1983 it took an ordinary officer and extraordinary man, to diffuse the tension. He considered himself the right person at the right time. Should we thank the lord that neither Reagan or Andropov were at the controls? How might they have reacted? Or how would today's leaders Barack Obama or Vladimir Putin, Bin Netanyahu, General Sisi, Stephen Harper or even Tony Abbott react? I could go on...but surely Donald Trump already has enough publicity.

Aries or Aries Rising: It pays to play it cautious at the start of September and analyse situations from more than one angle. The Sun now highlights your house of detail and discrimination. But it is also opposing Neptune, which can have the effect of blinkering you to some realities. It's not what you know that effects, so much as what you don't. Be wary in situations where you are far from the action. Providing you can curb that Arian impulse for immediacy and do your reconnaissance work first, you should be able to navigate around the icebergs.

Taurus or Taurus Rising: Although there could still be some things to be settled around the domestic scene, September opens with the Sun and optimistic Jupiter in well angled to your sign. There is a certain kind of escapist, almost party hat feel about this. Imaginative Neptune can be delivering the appropriate company for that. Creative, youthful or arty types offer the right kind of soul food for your appetite. Alternate realities can help you get a better perspective on things, and the early combination of Venus and Mars definitely says follow your passion. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and/or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Gemini or Gemini Rising: The opening of September is about reconnecting to your spiritual roots, finding your true Shangri-La. Heaven is here on earth if you're in the right space. Surrounds and locations either nurture or negate and you're definitely about finding the former for now. A sudden awakening can invite a release from restrictive circumstance or inspire your ticket to faraway places. Birthdays close to the end of May, start of June will feel this more than most. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising: When the expressive Sun moves into the intellectual house of mind, it's about revitalising your thinking. A premise that you're working on may be outmoded. Your measured approach may be minus an intuitive key with Neptune in the mix early. Stay cool - relax. What seems like a loss could actually be a gain. It's moving you onto a new place – forcing you to look at something in a totally new way. Take the new challenge and you'll end up smarter - don't be a stick in the mud crab. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising: Everybody dreams of what they would do with a lottery win. With the Sun now in your money zone, opposing phantasmagorical Neptune – you're allowed to indulge such visions. The scout's motto is always be prepared. You also know that lotteries are a cagey way of taking a stack of money and only giving back a portion. The tasty bait sucks in the punter. Be wary of anything too 'fishy' in the areas of financial trading and what seems too good an opportunity to pass up. Avoiding temptation now can land you the 'real' bargain later this month.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: Empathy is what makes us human. It's not like you to pass the busker without occasionally throwing a coin in the hat when Neptune opposes your Sun. That's what it's doing now and it's evaporating the barriers between you and your world. Of course there is a certain amount of idealism involved in all of this. Which means that normally pragmatic Virgo also doesn't want to be taken for an all day sucker with handouts for hopeless escapists. Choose your charity wisely - but choose it just the same.

Libra or Libra Rising: Which do you believe - fools rush in or he/she who hesitates is lost? If you knew the answer to that conundrum, you'd be making a fortune on the stock exchange for starters. The clue, for early September at least, lies in the Sun's opposition to deceptive Neptune. That's about playing the waiting game. Those who can act decisively have the right information on call. You could be temporarily missing a vital piece of the jigsaw. If you sense that – pay attention. Knowing how to watch and wait, is just as valuable as knowing when to play your hand.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Great artists traditionally mastered technique and expression by duplication. They drew inspiration and refinement from standing on the shoulders of previous masters. Choosing a role model can be the in achieving a current goal. It's important to start somewhere. And what cannot be achieved individually may be achievable in a group situation. The Sun shining through your house of shared pleasures is opposing inspirational Neptune in your house of creativity. Life makes a fine romance when you gel with that combination.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: When the authoritative Sun angles against sacrificial Neptune in your home zone, you either take charge or take a sickie. Usually this will play out in trading off some home or family time because duty calls. September can be playing out as an important career month ahead but may also involve some travel. Depending upon your responsibilities you may be burning the candle at both ends to start with. But if the buck stops with you then ensure you're also making the buck to cover it.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Just like in the Wizard of Oz, the scenery should be a lot different than Kansas. If September isn't bringing you into unfamiliar territory then you may have actually lost your way – by standing still. That happens when the world moves on and you don't. But if you're embarking on a new expansive adventure, you're surely on the right track. Importantly, this is about setting your individual path. The only textbook you'll need is the one called 'Be Your Own Teacher'. The pages are blank, but there's a decent pen under the cover.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: It's a concern that the greatest ancient building remaining - the Great Pyramid - is really a giant tombstone. Then, as now, death is the final frontier. There's no turning back once you cross the line. And that's what we really fear - finalities. As the Sun and Neptune face off to each other you have to sacrifice something to gain something else. You can't have the cake and eat it too. Neither can you deliberate forever. Or you'll find that the real death is indecision. To look at your own future prospects astrologically for 2015 -2016, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising: The Sun is now opposite your sign which tends to attract others into the picture. Plus it begins the month opposing idealistic Neptune. There can be a touch of unreality about this. A sense of what might have been had a situation been different. It can even be a lost in love, or 'long lost love' aspect. This is actually leading to better times ahead, but not without some initial self reflection. It helps not to compare yourself with others, and aim for unity above competition.
