Saturn enters the sting of Scorpio, and the threat level raises.


It's always important as an Astrologer to keep an eye on the moments of the planets on the Astrology wheel, but it also pays to realise that the wheel we use is quite crude almost anaesthetic in nature. When you put the planets and place them within the constellations, then things come very much to life, and you get a brand new perspective on their movements. For us all, there is no more important planet than Saturn as it teaches us all lessons, and now it it moving into a very interesting part of the heavens.

Shooting on the Champs Elysees in Paris



Evening everyone. Yet another shooting in Paris tonight as two police officers were shot on the most famous boulevard in the city. Now I hear this attack occurred at 9.00 pm local time, and rather than looking at the actual chart, I'll take a different tack (as I do) and link it back to the first terrorist attack in Paris back a couple of years ago, the Charlie Hebdo one on 7th Jan 2015. I did this for the Bataclan atrocity, and yet again there are striking links to this first incident.

Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 – Threats a real and present danger

sochi 2

In a couple of weeks time the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia get underway with the opening ceremony. If you look on a map, Sochi is not so far from the very unstable region of  Chechnya and I would imagine that the authorities in Russia are very aware of the potential problems that this could pose. This was brought into very sharp focus as the Slovenian Olympic Association were sent a terrorist threat just today. Now I took the liberty of having a look at the moment for the start of the Games (the official website has a countdown clock) and I would suggest that the Russian authorities stay very much on their mettle.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev – A look at the birth chart of the Boston Bomber

Boston Bomber

I have deliberately waited until Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured before doing this post as not to give him any publicity on my website. Being a site where I do like to look at the news and the characters making the headlines, this one was a difficult call to make and I thought with an on-going operation and with people’s lives at risk, I believed it insensitive to go into the character of this lad. Now that he will face the full face of justice I am happier to have a look at his horoscope.

Algeria – Gas plant hostage crisis raises the stakes in sub Saharan Africa

Gas Compession plant

Now, who saw this one coming? At an Algerian gas compression plant in In Amanas, up to 41 Western hostages have been taken in apparent retaliation for the French using Algerian air space during air raids in neighbouring Mali, which have also been supported by Britain. The plant is jointly owned by Norway’s Statoil and British Petroleum and there are reports that a group allied to Al Qaida have been implicated. It seems from a story emanating from Algerian media that gunmen on 10 large trucks stormed the plant to take the hostages. If you look at the Algerian national chart, one can immediately see this situation developing.

Mali – Rebel Islamic coup triggers international military action.

taking action in Mali

A military coup in the north of Mali by Islamists back in April 2012 has now prompted France to fly in troops and aircraft into the country, one of France’s former colonies in West Africa. The French were very much afraid that if the Islamists, who already controlled many towns and settlements in the North of this Saharan country marched into Bamako, Mali’s capital then the situation might turn very ugly. President Traore of Mali asked for French assistance and air strikes to push back the Islamic advance and for the moment at least, the rebel advance towards the capital has ceased.

Is Anders Behring Breivik a psychopath?


Back in July 2011 I looked at Anders Behring Breivik and his horoscope and showed his link to the Norway twin terror attack? Since then, the debate has raged on to whether he is a psychotic, a bit of a lunatic or just very focused and dangerous with it. Today in light of the debate raging in Norway over his conviction as being totally sane in carrying out his atrocious acts, I once again I attempt to take a slightly more detailed look into the mind of a mass murderer.

Anwar Al-Awlaki – Karma at work. The Al Qaeda bomb maker killed in Yemen before he could do any more harm.

The Al Qaida operative and cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki has been killed in Yemen reportedly due to a US drone strike. Apparently he was at an Al Qaida stronghold with some companions when the strike occurred. He had been near the top of President Obama’s hit list, and looking at his natal chart with good reason. This was a seriously dangerous man, who was very innovative.

The Twin Towers Attack – A look at the astrology of 9/11, the event that shook the world.

twin towers

It is 10 years on, and the pictures still chill one to the bone. I personally had just got home from work just before 2pm UK time, I switched on the TV to watch in disbelief one of the Twin Towers was ablaze. Then an airliner appeared from the right of the picture (I knew it was a large passenger plane from the shape of the aeroplane) and smashed straight into the second tower. I sat in my living room transfixed and horrified as the shocking drama played out.

TwinTowers natal

Going back 10 years to look at the astrology chart of the day, a view of the event clearly forms. We know the target of the attack – the Twin Towers. The twins immediately lead us to think of Gemini, the sign representing twins in the zodiac. Sitting in Gemini in the international 9th house (this was an attack that was felt across the world) were just 2 planets the Moon and Saturn.

Think of the chart as a picture, we see the Moon represented the people and Saturn represented the buildings and authorities standing side by side. Both the Moon and Saturn are under attack from three planets. Saturn receives a direct opposition from Mars in Capricorn from the 3rd house, and the Moon receives an opposition from Pluto exactly on the cusp of the 3rd. Also we see from Mars to Moon and from Pluto to Saturn are intensely focused quindecile aspects. Saturn receives a trine from Mercury on the Ascendant and the Moon receives a trine from unpredictable Uranus. Pluto is the planet of mass destruction, death and also of feeling trapped. You can sense the intense emotion that this Moon/Pluto opposition created and the force unleashed in the Pluto/Saturn quindecile destroying the buildings where so many people were left helpless waiting to die. Mars is the warrior planet and signifies the action, the attack and the force on both planets in Gemini. Extending the chart out a little Mercury, ruling Gemini also rules Virgo which sits on the cusp of the 12th house, the house of secret enemies and also of sacrifice. Those enemies had awaited their moment with precision and stealth, striking with ruthless efficiency at the same time sacrificing their own lives.

TwinTowers reduced

Notice the 3rd/9th angle, the transport and travel axis on the chart being highlighted. This is also backed up by Mercury on the ascendant. Mercury represents transport, the airliners being used as weapons and being central to the attempt. Uranus in it’s own sign of Aquarius trines the Moon the fifth house, providing the swift, shocking aspect of the attack on the people. The pattern of these trines zooming into the opposition and quindecile aspects mirror the path the two airliners took as they crashed into the towers. Stripping away the other planets opens up the picture, doesn’t it? Sometimes seeing less is more…

Just a couple of other things to notice. Mars was at the time of the first hit tightly quindecile the Midheaven in Cancer. This was an action aimed at the people and security systems (Cancer through the Moon rules both) to focus US public attention. There is a t-square from the Saturn Pluto opposition to the Sun at the point. The Sun shows the people at the top (the President) in Mundane Astrology and the 11th house represents the parties and government systems. The other target was a strike at the US Government itself, and later that morning the Pentagon suffered severe damage from a third plane crashing into the building.

The Midheaven on the day was receiving a conjunction from lucky Jupiter which was itself square to Mercury and the Ascendant, so fortune was favouring a successful attack at this time. Lastly, Neptune sat peregrine in the 4th house and alone away from the rest of the planets and thus dominating proceedings. Here is the indication that a spiritual (Neptune) leader sitting at home (4th) was behind the whole operation. We now know that man to be Osama Bin Laden, and ten years on from the shocking crime he masterminded, his assassination has for now provided a sense of closure to the US people over the unforgettable events of the 9th September 2001.

Anders Behring Breivik – The horoscope of the Norwegian twin terror attacker.


This is the face of the man who yesterday did an unspeakable crime in trying to blow up the governmental office buildings in Oslo, then later that afternoon massacred over 80 students at a political rally on the island of Utoya. Anders Behring Breivik until yesterday had no convictions (except motoring offences to his name) but he was capable it seems of singlehandedly carrying out one of the worst atrocities in recent European history. After finding out his birth date (thanks to Wikipedia) I can now look at the Norwegian twin terror perpetrator.

AndersBehringBreivik natal

Anders Behring Breivik was born apparently on 13th February 1979 (assumed in Oslo). This gives him an Aquarian Sun in conjunction to Mercury and Mars in the same sign. This is a man who will think and act in a radical (Aquarian) way, different to the mainstream of public opinion; he will like to be seen as unique. This combination gives his a very cool independent air, kind yet rather distant and definitely capable of acting on his own. It also contributes to him a very go-ahead attitude, a very sharp mind and just as sharp a temper. This is a man who could lose his cool demeanour if angered. This conjunction connects to every other planet on the chart save Jupiter which sits on it’s own in Leo (I will deal with Jupiter later).

Quindecile to Sun/Mercury/Mars is Saturn and (potentially) the Moon probably in conjunction in Virgo. This is a very conservative mix in personal views. This is a guy who is capable of working in great detail, perfecting anything he does to the ultimate degree and planning actions extremely carefully. Saturn is retrograde and this conjunction tells me that he had problems with both parents when growing up. The mother would have been ultra critical and quite aggressive to him and he would have missed the love of his father. Either he would have been away for a part of his upbringing or maybe he was angry to Anders too. Whichever way, I sense that he would have brought considerable emotional baggage with him into adulthood. This is a very self-critical man and possibly internally nervous, he will worry beneath the cool exterior. Saturn/Moon trine onto Venus in Capricorn, again here are very conservative social views. He would have a desperate need to be listened to and would have the attitude “if you don’t want to listen to me, I’ll show you”.

Feeding into the Sun/Mercury Mars conjunction is a mini grand trine with Neptune in Sagittarius at the point and Pluto in Libra completing the formation. Mars Pluto and Sun Pluto show formidable determination and extreme social views (Pluto in Libra) and a need for power and notoriety. Anders through his actions (Mars) would seek to control and be significant (Pluto trine Sun). These actions would be faith orientated; spiritual Neptune in faith orientated Sagittarius is a big signature of somebody religiously motivated. Breivik was known as a Christian fundamentalist.

Uranus in Scorpio also makes a square to the Sun/Mercury/Mars. Breivik would have been very technically minded with computer acumen and more than likely he possessed high level mechanical and engineering skills, perfect for constructing a workable explosive device from scratch. This aspect also would have made his mind quite when unstable when stressed and potentially explosive. Uranus is capable of shock actions and extreme views especially when combined with Mars and Mercury. Uranus in Scorpio is dark, extreme, rebellious and underground in nature. You will not see these views on the surface but they bubble underneath infecting the psyche until they are activated – just like a volcano waiting for the pressure of the lava to build up so much that an explosion takes place. That explosion in Anders Behring Breivik happened yesterday.

Finally we have the lone Jupiter. Jupiter will dominate the chart as it does not connect by aspect to any other planet. Jupiter in Leo is the king and harbours a need to be famous. This is a dramatic position for Jupiter, one needs to put on a spectacular show. Nothing small minded about this aspect, the bigger the impact the better. Jupiter in Leo tells one better to go out in a blaze of glory, than not at all.

And that is what is Anders Behring Breivik did. Looking to his transit chart transiting Uranus was at the midpoint of natal Pluto and his North Node making highly stressed quindecile aspect to both – here is the motivation for doing a shocking act causing death and destruction and putting his name into the public awareness at the same time – remember about what I said about his fixation with being “someone”. Uranus is also in action based Aries, there is almost a destiny feeling about this connection.

AndersBehringBreivik transit

On the slower Solar Arc charts, Solar Arc Sun was quindecile natal Saturn, this is a time of ultra seriousness and a testing of one’s ambitions, Solar Arc Mars was almost exactly trine natal Uranus, here is again motivation to carry out a something unique. Solar Arc Jupiter was quindecile to natal Mars, this act must be huge in impact and scope. Solar Arc Uranus was sextile the natal Sun, an independent revolutionary mood and spirit and Solar Arc Pluto was conjunct natal Uranus which causes upset and tension and gives the indication of overturning the status quo through death and destruction.

AndersBehringBreivik solar arc

You can see the build up of tension on the transits and Solar Arcs chart combined with a stressful and potentially explosive natal chart. I think all the troubles harked back to his upbringing, and the anger he unleashed was frustration stored up from his youth.

Norway – Oslo hit by massive bomb blast at Prime Minister’s office. Are Al Qaeda responsible?

Oslo bomb

Oslo has been hit by a shock bomb blast at the offices of the Prime Minister at around 15.30 today. As I write 7 people are confirmed dead and to all reports people are trapped with the building. Norway has never suffered anything like this in it’s history and it must be a complete shock to the Norwegian people. I look at the astrology to try to make more sense of the situation. There are also reports of shootings at a youth based political meeting on an island called Utoya around an hour from the capital, caused by a lone gunman.               

The modern chart of Norway goes back to the country’s independence from it’s union with Sweden on 7th June 1905 at 11.00 in Oslo. This gives a 10h house Sun in Gemini conjunct to Pluto in the 10th house of government and national prestige. Norway is a modern constitutional monarchy and a rich one at that with copious natural resources. With Pluto and Neptune in the 10th house one can see the reliance on natural gas (Neptune) and petroleum (Pluto) as well as having a significant fishing fleet (Neptune) and fishing is an important industry for the country. The Moon representing the people sits in proud Leo in the 11th house and this shows the propensity for the people to rule in a party lead political system to run alongside the monarchy. Jupiter, Venus and Mercury sit in the 9th house of education and wisdom. Norway has always had a reputation for high learning, literature, music and culture and of course is the home of the Nobel awards for peace, science & literature. Mercury sits on the Midheaven in the peace loving sign of Taurus and it is no wonder that Norway is a neutral country and it’s preferred stance has always been non-military,  although recently it has acted as a member of NATO in international cooperation (Venus in 9th opposite Mars). Looking at Mars it lies in the 3rd house of the local environment. Mars is retrograde so defence is focused on defending Norway’s own borders rather than looking aggressively outwards. Uranus sits in the 4th house and Saturn in the 6th, so politically Norway will always err on the side of social parties of a more socialist ideology or those with a connection to the working classes (6th).

Norway natal

Now to the blast and gun attacks today. Looking at the transit chart we see transiting Mars exactly sitting on natal Pluto also conjunct the Norwegian Sun. Here is a brutal attack causing death and destruction hitting at the heart of the Norwegian nation and those at the top. Transiting Pluto makes several aspects; opposition to Neptune - death & confusion and maybe links to religious based groups, quindecile to it’s own position – here again is an extreme focus on underground activities and destruction and a trine to Venus – here is a social angle to the attack and a potential link to hitting the people at the top of government (Taurus on the Midheaven ruled by Venus). We also have a square between Uranus and it’s own position, so a shocking event and trine from transiting Uranus to the Moon; the general public are caught up in this. Interestingly transiting Jupiter makes an opposition to natal Mars and a square to natal Moon – is this a faith (Jupiter) based attack (Mars) on the people (Moon) of Norway? Looking at this chart, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a religious group behind this attack. Would it be another Al Qaeda attack like the one in Mumbai?

On the Solar Arc charts, SA Uranus is exactly almost to the minute square Norway’s natal Pluto with is destructive and Solar Arc Mars is trine to natal Pluto, square to natal Jupiter and quindecile to natal Moon – here is an aggressive and destructive link to the people (Moon) – Jupiter hints an international or faith angle. Finally SA Saturn is one degree away from being conjunct to the Norwegian Sun, so a sombre time now awaits and the Solar Arc South Node, opposite the North Node is exactly conjunct the Sun too, indicating a difficult time. The age of innocence is over for Norway. 

Norway transit

Looking at the Al Qaeda chart compared to a transit chart in Oslo for 15.30 there are definite signs that the terrorist group could be responsible. The Al Qaeda natal Pluto sits exactly conjunct to the ascendant opposite to transiting Jupiter, this aspect alone says to me a successful (Jupiter) Al Qaeda bombing (Pluto) campaign. Emotionally Al Qaeda would have been ready for a some action as transiting Uranus is trine the Al Qaeda natal Moon, squares natal Venus and sextile natal Jupiter. Putting this together, Moon in the 9th house can mean links to people abroad, social Venus is in the 8th house of death, destruction and change, and Jupiter in the 7th may be dealing with others outside the group (there is the international link again), a franchise group working on behalf of the main organisation?  I do admit all this is speculation, but the links are there giving some credence to my feeling that Al Qaeda are involved, backed up by the fact that the coordinated nature of the attacks is their trademark. Transiting Saturn does sit opposite the Al Qaeda Mars, so the Norwegian authorities may catch one or all of the culprits and it may help in identify who actually did the deed. Unfortunately for Norway, the damage has already been done, and the people of this beautiful country are now suffering.

AlQaedaformation transit

My thoughts go out to the people of Norway, and I hope those responsible will be caught and prosecuted.


***Update 23rd July 2011***

It sounds like the the perpetrator of the heinous massacre of 84 young students and the bombing in Oslo was a 32 year old Right Wing extremist, Anders Behring Breivik (picture below). If he acted alone, and was able to carry out the whole massacre himself, it would show this man to be a very calculating and potentially unstable. To look at the horoscope of the Oslo attacker, please click on the link below

Horoscope of Anders Behring Breivik


Very interesting that my Al Qaeda assumptions (and the astrology in my view still holds out) seem to be totally wrong. If so, I hold my hands up – nobody can be correct all of the time, the prediction business is a risky game to get things spot on and even though the stars and planets allow you to have a glimpse of what may be, human nature and motivations are one thing you can never be 100% sure of getting right.
