SACRIFICE

The word ‘holocaust’ comes from the ancient Greek, meaning to be wholly burnt. It was commonly used to describe sacrificial offerings. Holocaust was the name adopted for the Nazi persecution of the European Jews, along with other minorities, in the Second World War. Denial of the Holocaust, in some countries, equates to a jail sentence.

In the early hours of July 2 2014, a Palestinian youth, Mohamed Abu Khdeir, was burned alive when on his way to a prayer service. It was a random revenge killing, for the murder of three Israeli youths. Holocaust had come to Jerusalem. Since then the death toll has multiplied hundreds of times over and the disequalibrium of Israel and Palestine is inciting greater enmity within the international community.

Little children are playing a game of hide and seek on a beach. But the one thing that they can’t hide from is indiscriminate Israeli missile fire that senselessly takes their lives. Just as the world condemned the slaughter of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics, now it is condemning the state controlled killings of the innocent civilians and children of Gaza. And the pressure is mounting on the United Nations to show some strength, purpose, unity and usefulness.

UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS

Navi Pillay is the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner. Navi was born on September 23 1941, in Durban South Africa. She is an old hand at working through established prejudice. She spent almost a whole Saturn cycle, of over 28 years, opposing apartheid in her homeland.

As a non-white lawyer, Pillay was not permitted into judge’s chambers. The first chambers she entered were her own, when elected to the South African High Court in 1995. Navi advanced to be a judge on the United Nations International Criminal Court. She served as the President of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda.

Pillay’s discerning Virgo Sun, joined to empathetic Neptune, supports her understanding and service for the disadvantaged. Her Sun is also trine to judgmental Saturn, placed in rock solid Taurus. It’s a complimentary alignment - Neptune’s compassion with Saturn’s stark sense of reality. Neptune has now progressed to be exactly conjunct her Sun.

On Tuesday July 22 2014, on the evidence witnessed in the brutal Gaza offensive, Navi Pillay, moved to take the warring parties to the International Criminals Court. It was put to a vote. At precisely 6.21 pm in Geneva, the results showed twenty-nine for the motion, seventeen abstaining, and only one country opposed – the USA.

PLUTO OPPOSING THE USA SUN

The United Nations Human Rights Commission vote is a stark representation of Pluto – the masses – now opposing the July 4 1776 birth Sun of the USA. The opposition means exactly what it implies. Pluto is the challenge to transform your relationships and in a national horoscope it represents international alliances.

In the aftermath of September 11 2001, with Pluto sitting at the Ascendant of the US horoscope, President George W. Bush issued the world with a provocative ultimatum - you are either with us or against us! Most nations united behind the USA, in a war on terror. Following the selective expansion of these military operations (on dubious evidence) into countries like Iraq, the United Nations held back. It went ahead anyway.

Then came the collapse of the global economy with little to no metered punishment of the culprits, the Edward Snowden revelations of global spying of unimaginable proportions. And as the international community witnessed a sharply polarized nation of growing wealth disparity, they began having genuine doubts about the USA being a model country of the ‘free world’.

Pluto opposing the Sun is a signal to rebuild international relations in a new and different way, as well as exposing the reasons for their fracture. It also talks of covert and influential cabals and lobby groups affecting the leadership in the US chart. Although the US demands immunity for their own combat forces from the International Criminal Court, having an ally like Israel charged for crimes against humanity may further erode their credibility within the global community. The US Israel relationship is destined for change within the coming years - it's an astrological certainty.

THE IGNITED NATIONS

The horoscope of the United Nations is extremely challenged in 2014. Reformative Pluto is now at the administrative Midheaven of the United Nation’s horoscope, timed for 16.50 hours, October 24 1945, in Washington when the organisation was ratified. Pluto also squares the UN Jupiter – planet of judicial process. Right now on July 27 2014 the Leo New Moon and Jupiter squares the UN Sun, as warlike Mars moves across it. Should we rename it the Ignited Nations? Click here for the combined charts.

The ongoing revolutionary Uranus and Pluto square will impact on the United Nations Midheaven, again in mid November as combative Mars joins Pluto at the same Midheaven. This may signal a major conflagration. Even the United Nations birthday horoscope is a Solar Eclipse with peacemaker Venus. Will funding be threatened? It’s little wonder that a new Cold War has emerged – fresh financial alliances, like BRICS, are taking shape – and the Israel Palestine issue is again at the center of UN debate.

The Israel Palestine partition was one of the first issues dealt with by the UN. What success did they have? At 17.30 hours on September 17 1948 the original UN mediator for the Palestinian territories, Swedish diplomat Folke Benadotte, was assassinated by the Zionist terrorist group Lehi, as he sat in his car. A leader of the group, Yitzhak Shamir, would later become Prime Minister of Israel. Accountability, it seems was non-existent. Imagine the consequences of that happening in today's world.

Israeli peacemaker politicians have also paid the price. None more so than their Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. When deep change Pluto opposed the Israeli national birth Sun in 1993/94 Rabin and his Palestinian counterpart Yassar Arafat symbolically shook hands and signed the Oslo Peace Accords in the grounds of the White House. Hope was in the air. It won Rabin, Arafat and Israeli President Simon Perez the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize.

Not everybody was so agreeable. Rabin’s political opponent, Bin Netanyahu, addressed nationalist rallies where Rabin was depicted as a Nazi. On November 4 1995 Rabin was gunned down by a Zionist extremist. Bin Netanyahu now calls the shots in Israel. All which has led to a hardening of the Palestinian resolve and a government with a similar para-military background in Hamas. Meantime Israel, throughout their short and eventful history have had an intractable military and financial supporter in the USA.

THE US ISRAEL CONNECTION

The Jewish American connection dates well before the formation of modern Israel. B’nai B’rith, committed to the preservation and security of international Jewry, is the world’s oldest Jewish service organization. It began in a New York coffee shop on October 13 1843. The horoscope of B’Nai B’rith features a Libran Sun, Mercury and Venus clustered closely together.

Many years later, in Plonsk Poland, David Ben-Gurion, would be born on October 16 1886. He would have three planets and the Sun in Libra – extraordinarily connected to the B’Nai B’rith chart. Ben Gurion, as fate would have it, became the first Prime Minister of Israel.

At precisely 4 pm on May 14 1948, as Ben Gurion began chairing the meeting that proclaimed the new state, the degree of his Sun began rising in Tel Aviv. Twenty-three degrees of Libra is the astrological Ascendant of the national horoscope of Israel.

Astrology does not consider these connections between B’nai B’rith, Ben Gurion, and the ascending degree of Israel as simple coincidence. They are part of a cosmic pattern, which can be used for prediction.

When Uranus and the Sun moved across this degree in 1973, the Yom Kippur war broke out with Egypt. As warlike Mars and the karmic lunar nodes moved across this same Libran degree in July 2014, Israel began a concentrated bombardment of Gaza, declaring war on Hamas.

The USA was the first country to recognize Israeli statehood at 6.11 pm on May 14 in Washington. At that exact time in Washington, the Ascendant had just moved into early Scorpio, which is where Mars is now moving. It was a decision taken by President Harry Truman overruling the advice of his state department. The US Secretary of State and Army Chief of Staff, General George Marshall, warned Truman that Israel recognition, without also taking Palestine into account, would plunge the area into an immediate and ongoing war.

MARSHALL V TRUMAN

The Army Chief challenged the President with, "If you (recognize the state of Israel) and if I were to vote in the election, I would vote against you." Marshall took the extraordinary measure to have this conversation chronicled for historical reference. He reasoned that Truman was making an international decision based on securing homeland Jewish political support for his upcoming 1948 election.

Marshall was also echoing the advice of his Middle East state department advisors. Loy Henderson had cautioned, “We have hitherto always held that in our foreign relations American citizens, regardless of race or religion, are entitled to uniform treatment. The stress on whether persons are Jews or non-Jews is certain to strengthen feelings among both Jews and Gentiles in the United States and elsewhere that Jewish citizens are not the same as other citizens.”

In that same year, 1948, Marshall oversaw the post war rebuilding of Europe – known as the Marshall Plan. He became the first US military person to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Truman, guaranteed his homeland support, narrowly won his 1948 election. The Middle East plunged immediately into war. Israel achieved international recognition for its statehood. But for the Palestinians the fight goes on, regardless of administrations, (their own or US) and the wait and toll seems as interminable as it is inhumane.

Aries or Aries Rising: It should be obvious. The things you do naturally are the things you usually do best. This week trust your natural instincts and follow your intuitive hunches. Now is the perfect period to develop latent talents, or bring creative inspiration to the table. Affairs of the heart will be stifled by procrastinating over analysis, or premature judgments. Act in the moment, go with the flow. To truly test the water you have to put your foot in it. Realize that there's a perfectly valid reason that fortune favors the brave.

Taurus or Taurus Rising: The wisdom that all journeys begin with a single step holds extra meaning in your current situation. You can be deterred from starting something if you are only immersing yourself in the outcome. Until you do something to effect, even a small change, nothing will shift at all. It doesn't have to amount to much initially. Think of the tightrope walker - small moves have much larger consequences. Sometimes much larger than you can imagine. Intense awakenings can come via family connections or by studying your own inherited traits. Click here for more in the monthlies.

Gemini or Gemini Rising: Your sign should be the one most favored by this rapidly changing ‘age of information’. That is provided you’re not overwhelmed by the technology or volume of it all. It’s a bit like reading a dictionary. The book will provide individual meanings, but won’t really help you put a coherent sentence together. Right now you can have more than enough facts, figures, quotes or opinions to juggle. It’s more a matter of making sense of it all. Know what you want to take out of it is the key to this puzzle.

Cancer or Cancer Rising: Jupiter has spent a full year in your sign, during which new visions, projections and plans for the future are being birthed. If last year provided an education, in whatever form, then it was meant to prepare you for future contingencies. Now it's a matter of gathering the right tools for the project. Security counts in a major manner. Choose resources, situations and people that are solid and enduring. Fresh financial growth and opportunity could be on the doorstep.

Leo or Leo Rising: The New Moon in Leo is specifically affecting birthdays on, or around, the 27th of July. Its positive and exuberant Jupiter focus means there is currently no holding you back.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: The New Moon highlights your 'house of the hidden'. Divestment may bring associated rewards - releasing can bring immediate relief. Sometimes you find your place by doing nothing. It's not really doing nothing though. More like the cat outside the mouse hole. You won't get your prey by making a lot of noise, and scratching around the surface is a dead giveaway. Let the cards fall naturally and situations follow their path. A spiritually rewarding week, ideal for cleanouts and charitable donations.

Libra or Libra Rising: The human species thrives on the collective. We hunted as tribes, we built through community, and our domination was via unified effort. This week's New Moon, with beneficial Jupiter attached is emphasizing the importance of the networks in your life. They're there for multiple reasons. If you're open to the powerful bonds of friendship, they now serve an important purpose. You are one in the many, but without you the many cannot exist. Joining a movement, club or group gathering can give new meaning.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: You've probably heard the axiom that 90% of success is showing up. What that really means is making yourself available at every opportunity. Knocking on multiple doors - maximizing, not limiting, your effort. Sometimes simply being there will lead to right place, right time outcomes. All of that requires a certain amount of faith on your part. But there's no crime in self belief. Unless it starts with you, it won't end with others. This New Moon is linking with opportunistic Jupiter in your house of recognition. Thinking of returning to the workforce? Your the expert now!

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: It was Marco Polo who found that not all the answers lie close to home, and cultural differences are not necessarily a liability. If you're willing to take a chance on something with untried - and possibly untold - potential, you may find the rewards are well worth your entrepreneurial risk. For Sagittarian parents, a chance to recognize and develop a child's talent, or provide a valuable educational incentive. The November born are favored in legal matters, teaching and Internet based business.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: The New Moon is fortifying areas of mutual effort and support. It's an important week around shared resources and financial backing, or even calling in some favors.

It's not all about money, it's also about who you're allotting your time and trust to. Strong and reliable bonds are vital.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: The New Moon is revitalizing your house of relationship - the people who have the most influence on your life. Some of them will be experiencing major reshuffles in their own lives, which can be having a reciprocal effect on yours. You're simultaneously revisiting your own attitudes, agreements and attachments. This is especially evident if you're January born. New people appearing on the scene bring fresh and expansive opportunities. Valuable lessons through interactions, and some of you have found a new traveling companion.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: It's amazing what a difference a couple of months can make. It can move roadblocks out of the way and provide fresh encouragement and initiative. If support from others remains an issue, hold the fort, the cavalry is coming. This week is the time to get down to practical work and let perspiration flow from inspiration. There is a mission to be accomplished and matters to prioritize. You may welcome the opportunity to do so. A confident approach can be mixed with discipline and order. Health initiatives or related work is well supported. For more click here for the monthlies.
