AUSTRALIA REFLECTS

Mortality has been a prevalent theme in the collective mind of Australians lately. It began with the October 21 passing of senior statesman Gough Whitlam, a towering political figure involved in the most critical political moment of Australian history – the dismissal of an elected government. On November 4 the traditional race that stops a nation – the Melbourne Cup – was marred by the death of two horses, including the favourite.

Another freak sporting accident, on the hallowed turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground, happened when former Test cricketer Phillip Hughes was felled by a bouncer, days short of his 26th birthday. He never regained consciousness. Hughes’ funeral, on December 3, became a nationally televised event attended by government leaders, along with fellow sports identities, family and friends.

From 9.44 am Monday December 15 2014 the deadly theme resurfaced. A crazed and armed extremist held eighteen people hostage in the Lindt Café at Martin Place in central Sydney. It would lead to a tense sixteen-hour standoff ending with the tragic loss of two hostages and the gunman. Martin Place has since become a sea of flowers generated from the waves of public emotion.

PLUTO AND THE AUSTRALIAN MOON

Astrologically speaking death is Pluto’s domain. The Roman Pluto (or Greek Hades) was the ruler of the underworld and lord of those who had departed the mortal plane. In the horoscope of Australia, taken from European Settlement – January 26 1788 @ 5.23 am – Pluto is uncomfortably inconjunct Australia’s eighth house Moon. The Moon is posited in the traditional house of death. In a national horoscope the Moon rules the public and their mood.

During 2014 Uranus – planet of the unexpected and also flight – has also been in an uncomfortable inconjunct with Australia’s Moon whilst transiting Pluto has been trining it. It elicits associated themes. In July Australian’s mourned the loss of 27 nationals when Malaysian Flight MH-17 was shot out of the skies above Donetsk in the Ukraine. But the recent homeland attack, with every minute given national media coverage, gripped the nation even more. Australia’s horoscope clearly explains why.

THE SYDNEY SIEGE

Guns, weaponry and violence are a Mars affair. Not surprisingly the army and police also come under Mars. On the morning of December 15 Mars was transiting through Aquarius and sitting right at the Australian Ascendant and conjunct the national birth Sun. Additionally a revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square was perfecting in the skies and directly impacting on Australia’s Mars and Moon. Click here for the chart overlay.

In the lead up to the hostage taking, Australia had re-entered Iraq to combat the ISIL movement that Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, constantly referred to as a ‘death cult’. Regular readers will recall that only a fortnight ago I wrote that the only thing to save Abbott’s disastrous polling would be a security threat. But let me be abundantly clear that I do not subscribe to any conspiracy ideas regarding this recent event. The Australian chart depicts it only too well.

MAN THE MISFIT

The protagonist, Man Haron Monis, born May 19 1964 in Borujerd Iran, was a self appointed ayatollah, who came to Australia under political asylum in 1996. He was a ‘wanted man’ by INTERPOL and the Iranian police. But he was shunned by the Australian Muslim community for his extreme political views and dubious background. As he showed no attachment to known terrorist organizations, Monis was dropped off the Australian watch list some time after 2009.

Monis’ notoriety was sealed when he wrote inflammatory letters to the relatives of Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan. He was charged and found guilty of using the postal service for harassment. Monis appealed the verdict. Three days before the Sydney siege, the High Court of Australia upheld his conviction. Already on bail, he was facing further jail time.

The gunman’s astrological profile impacts negatively with the Australian horoscope. The principal planets involved are military Mars, judicial Jupiter and deadly Pluto. Click here for the overlaid charts. The gunman’s Mars Jupiter combination in steadfast Taurus and trine independent Uranus would account for his religious radicalism as well as the motivation to act upon such beliefs.

Man Haron Monis’ Mars Jupiter squares Australia’s Aquarian Sun and Ascendant. That meant by mid December 2014 as Mars moved across Australia’s Ascendant/Sun, it also squared his own Mars and Jupiter. The combination of the volatile Mars and Jupiter (a law unto oneself) was preceding yet another encounter with the law.

Australians responded in a remarkably uplifting way to the shooting tragedy. In opposition to a few bizarre overseas suggestions of reintroducing guns, the public delivered mountains of flowers instead. So many flowers that Martin Place overflowed with the color and scent of togetherness. In opposition to racial or religious intolerance Australians hashtagged ‘I will ride with you.' It went viral. The nation proudly kept its heart open instead of closed.

PAKISTAN SCHOOL TERROR

If Australia was lamenting deaths on the 16th then they also consumed Pakistan on the same day. Seven Taliban terrorists left 149 dead – including 132 children – during an eight-hour shooting rampage at a Peshawar Army School. The attack began at 10.30 am according to reports in Al-Jazeera and an eyewitness account in the Daily Mail. Click here for the attack horoscope.

The brutal attack on the army run school was in reply to the Pakistan governments Operation Zarb-e-Azb, from June 15, which have so far claimed 1270 rebels. The attack comes two months after Pakistan’s female education activist Malala Yousafzai – previously targeted by the Taliban - was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. As a result of the massacre Pakistan’s President Nawaz Sharif has reintroduced the death penalty.

The nation of Pakistan was created from the Indian independence movement and they officially became a nation at midnight leading into the 15th of August 1947. Hours earlier, around 9.30 am on the 14th Muhammad Ali Jinnah was sworn in as their first governor-general at Karachi. This is accepted as the national horoscope by many Pakistani astrologers.

Interestingly, a flag raising ceremony also took place at 9 am in the Peshawar area on the 15th. As the shooting took place here, it is worthwhile to additionally examine this horoscope. Both have military Mars at the Midheaven, making it the most elevated planet. The Midheaven also refers to the government. Pakistan has spent 1958 to 1971, 1977 to 1988 plus 1999 to 2008 under military rule. Even when not officially in power, the military have played a prominent role.

But the military rule that led to the birth of the Taliban was conceived at 5 pm on July 4 1977 according to notes of the coup leader and subsequent President Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq. The coup was enacted with the covert support of the British SAS and the US Reagan administration considering Zia-ul-Haq an excellent ally against communism. Islamic conservatism became a uniting factor in the military administration. The new President had his democratically elected predecessor Zulfikar Ali Bhutto hung.

Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq then actively supported the Mujahideen in the Afghanistan war against Russia. The Taliban grew from the conflict and now has considerable influence within the Pakistan military. Zia-ul-Haq died in a fiery plane crash also involving his own Chief of Staff, the American Ambassador to Pakistan and the US General in charge of military aid, on August 17 1988 – three days after Pakistan’s national birthday.

The eruptive Uranus Pluto square signifying rebellious extremism is today in a difficult alignment with Pakistan’s progressed Ascendant. Restrictive Saturn transits across their educative Jupiter and aggressive Mars is now opposing their progressed Mars. Under this pernicious influence aggression shocked the nation.

Gemini or Gemini Rising: From Adolf Hilter to George Bush, from Darth Vader to God - they've all issued the polarising ultimatum, 'you're either with me or against me'. Life may be coming at you in a similar vein. Support for one means rejection of another. A situation or individual is demanding you make a definite choice – commitment or absolution. But aren't you the symbol of Geminian duality. Isn't life really fifty shades of intellectual grey. Not so at the moment. More like the Zane Grey western – white hat black hat stuff.

Cancer or Cancer Rising: That 'something' that has been isolating you – the relentless call of duty, health concerns, your sense of perfection – is about to resolve. It should come as a welcome relief. Cancerian popularity is on the up – help is where you want it. Alliances may be coming out of the woodwork – relationships can step up a level. There's lot's of love to go around. And that's right – you don't have all the answers – you're not meant to. Human connection is the reason.

Leo or Leo Rising: The jigsaw cover looks very picturesque on the outside. So why do they have to mess up it all up into all those unconnected little pieces on the inside. Now you have to fit it all together again? It's the story of this week. Being highly productive, orchestrating things for others, worrying over the finer details. Are you beginning to sound like a chef at Christmas. It is a festive season, so make it a labor of love. But remember, a drink to mine health also means you taking care of it! But the big picture is in the monthlies To look at your own personal horoscope for 2015 -2016, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin click here for details. Top

Virgo or Virgo Rising: This week's New Moon puts five celestial bodies into your house of entertainment. Yes, you read that right – a ticket for five rides at life's 'fun park' – pure unadulterated pleasure. Now surely that can't be wasted on a workaholic Virgo. Or are such simplicities cruelly, and wrongly, typecasting you, when everyone knows you can be the life of the party – even without a few drinks. But a double martini can make you front page news. Luck favours the brave and you're roaring with enthusiasm to test the theory. To read the other dates check your monthly horoscope here.

Libra or Libra Rising: Christmas is going to remind you that it's great to catch up with family again or that you can pick your friends but not your relatives. So which will it be? You should already have a reasonable idea. This week's planetary focus provides you with improved options. Who do you really want to call family and where do you feel most at home and comfortable? Choose it! Because the alternative is just a sham and about as smart as making a dental appointment when you don't have a toothache. Click here and the monthly explains it fuller.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: There's a rumour going around the astrological world that your real Christmas present is actually Saturn going out of Scorpio. It happens Christmas Eve. The Magi are saying that now you're eligible to find true love, win the lottery or stumble across Nirvana. No, not the band. Seriously there is a payday now awaiting your Saturnian sacrifices. Meantime your communications planets are white hot and on information overload where social networking can be a positive thing. It's doing more than just changing your headpsace.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: Of course Sagittarians are annoyed that those avaricious one-percenters own the planet. It's something you notice a lot more when the planets emphasize your personal finance zone. Money either makes your world go around or puts you into a spin. And hasn't Christmas gone far too commercial? Shouldn't it be the thought that counts? That's probably why you're thinking about your money, resources or possessions. Your material world awaits a restructure and you've been chosen as the architect. The trick is bringing the project in on budget. Click here for more in the monthlies.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: The New Moon places five celestial bodies in Capricorn. It all means this. You're better off planting your seeds now in your own fields rather than scattering them amongst your neighbours. When they mature let the wind can carry them forth for sharing with others. This is your time – take it and do something now for yourself. Self aware is not selfish. Know what you want, concentrate on your plans, live your life. It's that simple. Your own resourcefulness will provide your answers. Birthdays December 22nd and 23rd take extra note.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: It's the season of giving and you may feel this more than most. The stellium of planets this week enliven yopur spiritual senses related to release, liberation and inner knowing. You find it easier to move on from something, renounce redundant attitudes, beliefs or change habits. The end of the year represents a cleanout, but much moreso for Aquarius. Look at what has been holding you back and let it go. Finding your own space is vital for your essential recentering. Your inner world is the real gateway to your outer one.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: This week's planetary line up overflows into your house of hopes and dreams. Time to literally follow your star. Ancient astrologers considered this the domain of the Good Daemon – a reward for past good deeds. The modern ones look at it as where you discover the people who locking into your wavelength and helping your dreams manifest. It's about locating and spending quality time with true playmates. The collective energy can move mountains even if it does also totally stretch your vulnerable budget. For more click here for the monthlies.
