March 19

It's highly unusual. The US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, is making his first Asian visit. The media was not invited. They were told the plane would be too small. Only one seat was available to a conservative news outlet. Is it a sign of more presidential press paranoia or is something else afoot?

Last week's column, click here for the link, explained the Aries Ingress over Washington. And how the influence of Neptune rising would throw a cloud of secrecy, confusion and possible deception over international relations. This week looks further into the history of the US, China and the Korean peninsula.

THE CHINESE CONNECTION

As the Chinese economy and influence grows so does the threat to US power in the Asian Pacific. Countries like South Korea and Japan are being encouraged to ramp up their military budgets. And during the week the new US Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, has been meeting the leaders of both, before jetting into China.

The timing of Tillerson's visit is highly auspicious. It's a far cry from the days when Richard Nixon was hailed as a visionary for becoming the first US President to visit the People's Republic.

Nixon's ambitious venture was given extensive media coverage. It culminated in the Shanghai Communique, stating that neither power should "seek hegemony in the Asia-Pacific region”. Nixon's trip proved a political master-stroke. The President played on divisions between China and the USSR, prior to negotiating the SALT Treaty with the Soviets.

Normalising relations with Communist China paved the way for economic liberalisation programs that would support global growth well into the following millennium. That was forty five years ago.

Astrologically that means that the horoscope of the US and China coming together, has now reached a forty five degree semisquare by solar arc direction. This challenging angle puts the whole relationship under a crisis point of necessary change. Tillerson's trip is potentially the most important made since Nixon's historic landing on February 21 1972.

The US China economic co-dependency has grown to where the US is China's biggest export market, outside the European Union. China, along with being the biggest holder of US securities, is the third biggest export market for the US. But there are some elephants in the room. They lie on China's northern border at the Korean peninsula.

TWO TRIBES – ONE PEOPLE

The ancient kingdom of Korea has been a land divided since the end of World War Two. Emancipated from Japanese governance, dating back to annexation of August 22 1910, Korea ceded control of the south to the USA, whilst the Soviets took the north above the 38th parallel. The two sides became the geopolitical embodiment of the Cold War.

The North and South went to war at dawn on June 25 1950. That day featured a volatile Sun/Uranus conjunction in a tight square to the battle planet Mars. In effect it was a proxy war with China and the USSR backing the North and the USA and United Nations supporting the South. On the latest estimates it claimed over a million lives.

The conflict had no official end. Instead, after three years of fighting, an armistice was agreed upon at 10 am on July 27 1953 at Panmunjom and signed with no words spoken. In the South, they call the conflict the '625 Upheaval'. In the North it is referred to as the 'Fatherland Liberation War'. And China branded those years as 'the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea'.

OCCUPIED TERRITORY

Today those narratives have hardly changed. The two sides are provocatively divided by border guards and a barbed wire demilitarised zone, four kilometers wide and two hundred and fifty kilometers long. The US has never left. In January of 1958 they introduced nuclear weapons to the peninsula. They were withdrawn in December of 1991, with the hopes of reunification.

Over 28,000 US troops remain stationed in the South and joint military exercises are regularly undertaken. Meantime, the North maintains the fourth largest army in the world and have developed their own nuclear weapons program. They are believed to have between fifteen to twenty nuclear bombs.

South Korea, as one of the world's richest and technologically advanced nations, had similar plans. They were dissuaded from developing their own weapons and instead rely upon a US nuclear umbrella. South Korea have an agreement with Washington, that if the nation were attacked the US would assume military control of the peninsula.

NORTH KOREA

On September 9 1948 the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea was formed, under the leadership of Kim II Sung. The title of Supreme Leader was his for almost half a century, until his death on July 8 1994. Today his birthday is commemorated as the Day of the Sun.

During the decades of the 60's and 70's, with Soviet support, the economy of the North easily outperformed the South. Today the opposite is the case. North Korea's fierce nationalism has isolated them from the generous living conditions enjoyed by their southern counterparts.

Since the formation of the DPRK, leadership has remained a one family affair. Kim Jong-il led the country through 1994 to 2011. Under his rule North Korea withdrew from the nuclear proliferation treaty and pursued nuclear weaponry. Today the baton has passed to his second son Kim Jong-un.

Despite crippling economic sanctions, North Korea maintains the world's fourth largest standing army. Kim Jong-un has accelerated his missile program and boasted about reaching the west coast of the US. The US have pressured China to act. But China fears the fallout of a possible collapse of the North Korean state.

TRUMP AND THE ASTROMAPPING OF MARS

This is where the birth horoscope of Donald Trump, the US commander in chief, becomes vitally important. The dominant planet in his horoscope is Mars, rising at his birth.

And as described in previous columns, all of his campaign successes featured the red planet prominent. Already Trump's connection to the US military is proving more than just an astrological reality.

If you relocate Trump's horoscope to Washington, DC, then Mars comes precisely to his Ascendant degree. In short he brings his Mars – the planet of military aggression and competition – right to the White House. Then if you look at where his Mars was setting at is birth, you'll find it precisely over the North Korean capital of Pyongyang and northern Chinese border.

Having a planet on an angle maximises its power in that specific location. It's what makes the ramifications of Tillerson's mission, ahead of Xi Jinping's imminent visit to the USA, so important. Potentially the most important time since 1972 for the two nations.

Aries or Aries Rising: The commanding Sun's entry into Aries from the 20th energises your world and emboldens your plans. Even if you feel that you have to move heaven and earth to accomplish something here, you can actually be warming to the challenge. It's best if you can start early on any big projects with an elevated Moon and Pluto also firing up ambition from Monday.

Taurus or Taurus Rising: When the inspirational Sun and your ruling planet Venus spotlight your house of solace, you function more effectively in your own space. That may entail you clearing some time for private projects or keeping some things closer to your chest for the time being. A time for letting the seed nurture until it is ready to break new ground. Your future success now lies with the right preparation. 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: Friends and support groups can be playing a vital role over the coming weeks. Don't be afraid to reach out in situations where your life is undergoing major change. Resources and outside help can make all the difference in such situations. Conversely you may be asked to play such a role, whereupon your experience and advice can be invaluable for others. An emphasis on the human - and humane - connection. 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: The Sun atop your solar chart emphasizes career and ambition. It's placing a focus on your public image and reputation and wherever you feel involved in the more worldly sense. Time to take charge of affairs. A Moon/Pluto connection suggests somebody else can be playing a vital role here, or you may have to play ball with outside influences. On the positive this is bringing something closer to fruition for you. 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: Your ruler, the Sun, is now moving into an expansive and opportune alignment with your signs. It suits taking a larger overview on something - or hatching the grand plan. There is work involved. It's essential to keep the big picture to the forefront and not get detoured in the detail. This will change the playing field for you, when it is accomplished. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Virgo or Virgo Rising: The wisdom coming out of the weeks ahead involves your fear and your desire. When the momentum of desire overcomes the paralysis of fear you can successfully progress toward your target. Concentrating on what you want unleashes your creative power. Imagination is a powerful force and it begins with you owning, and directing, your thoughts. The rest will follow. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Libra or Libra Rising: The expressive Sun enters your house of 'the significant other' from this week. It can be the time you find Buddha on the road. If so - then keep your ears open. Ideally you may be re balancing relationships and exchanging ideas - and emotions - increasingly with others. The Moon and Pluto imply that if there's a family or property matter to be sorted, the early part of the coming week helps to propel the action.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Reading a medical dictionary can be the quickest way to becoming a hypochondriac. Or it could lead you toward a healthier and happier lifestyle. Information is as useful as what we do with it. You may have an abundance of it this week. The objective is that it helps you solve - or avoid - a problem. It's for your greater well being. Thank goodness for Google and YouTube. And that you are not afraid to ask questions. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: You've heard the observation, 'if he/she's so smart' then why aren't they rich?' Talent and wealth can be strange bedfellows. Van Gogh wasn't the only genius to die penniless and whose genius made millions for others. You may have a choice between pleasure and security - self-expression or playing it safe - in the coming week. But does it really have to be so black and white? The important thing - always - is not to sell yourself out. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details.  Top

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: If you build something solidly, from the ground up, then it will last the test of time. Right now its important to look at the structure of something. To discern whether it is built on solid rock or shifting sands. Apply this model to your current situation. Solidarity counts. It's like launching a ship and testing for the leaks at the same time. If you're practically involved with building or renovating, then all of this will be self-explanatory.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Remember the school game where a message was individually passed around the classroom. Usually it ended a lot different than it began. There is an emphasis on communication and correspondence that keeps you on the ball across the next week. It's a matter of knowing what to say - and when. You may even be the keeper of secrets - the trusted confidante. This one's not for Wikileaks...is it?

Pisces or Pisces Rising: If money makes the world go around, then what does lack of money do? Don't ask! You've heard enough about 'economic rationalisation'. Seems sometimes the whole planet is fixated on finances. As if it's the reason for living. Well not really - it just helps provide the sustenance. It's normal for you to be thinking security and self-worth at this point of the solar cycle. A certain amount of practicality is needed. Time to take stock and stock up where you can.
