Nightmare in Paris: An attack on freedom

                                                           "Paris is Charlie"



Two French terrorists who murdered at least 16 journalists, cartoonists, police officers, hostages and others were gunned down in a shootout near Paris and police are still searching for a female suspect January 9. The suspects killed 12 in an assault on  the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo two days earlier.

The terrorists were gunned down by police around 6:30 P.M., local time as the Moon opposed Neptune in the 8th house of death. Mars (27 degrees Aquarius) also fell in the 8th house showing police and a gun battle.

According to astrologer Nicholas Campion the 5th Republic (France) was created Oct 6, 1958 at 6:30 pm CET - the approximate time of the fixing of the seal to the new Constitution.

France is a Libra country and its Sun falls in the sixth house. Using this (Champion's) chart the Uranus-Pluto square fell exact on Mercury and the Sun in France's 6th house of workers and was "set off" over Christmas, New Year and by the January 5,  full moon in Cancer, showing us a major event would occur that would involve media, writers and workers.

Neptune is opposing Pluto in the same house and Neptune rules religion and ideology and Pluto rules the media.  It is reported the terrorists sought out cartoonists who they believed created disparaging pictures and images of Muhammad, believed to be last Prophet sent by God in the Islamic faith.

Saturn is square Pluto in France's chart and this is a dark energy indicative of underworld type of activities and violence. Nicholas Champion wrote, "We can see the intensely rough, purgative qualities of Saturn-Pluto indicate periods when there is in some way a need to get back to the basics to the skeleton of things as it were. Thus critical phases of  Saturn -Pluto can lead to seeing things in black and white so that only some kind of drastic action can suffice."   On 9-11 when the World Trade Center in New York was attacked, Saturn was opposing Pluto at 14-12 degrees of Gemini/Sagittarius.

 Saturn is currently at 1 degree of Sagittarius and France's Pluto is 3 degrees Virgo and Mars is at 2 degrees Gemini. Sagittarius is the sign ruling the ninth house of ideas and world view and Virgo's ruler is Mercury (writers). Gemini is also ruled by Mercury, and Saturn creates a T-square involving the energy of all three planets.

The Saturn-Neptune square is within a  4 degree orb as this post is written. By February  10, 2015 it is in a tight 2 degree orb, and it becomes exact in November, 2015.

This transit, along with the Uranus-Pluto square will dominate the sky throughout 2015 and into 2016. This unprecedented attack by religious extremists on free speech paints a picture of what the Saturn-Neptune square will show us over the next year.

As Neptune rules religion we will see more terrorist activities connected to those with fundamental religious views and ideologies, especially by those who try and impose their views on others. This is a dark energy and in the end we will have to approach many things differently in the future and this includes our approach to extremists and terrorists.

Unfortunately, looking at France's chart I do not find the danger is over. Pivotal days in France will be January 13-17,  as Mars squares Mars, opposes Pluto and sets off the Saturn-Neptune square and the t-square between Mars, Saturn and Pluto in France's chart.

Saturn will create a t-square between Mars and Pluto again late April-May and throughout October creating the possibility of future attacks.

During March,  the Uranus-Pluto square will be set off again, falling on Mercury again with the week of March 7, becoming pivotal. Mercury rules communication, the written word and young people.

Clearly this was an attack by religious extremists on freedom of speech. As I thought about this, I wondered if freedom of speech is under attack in America and can this be shown astrologically.

In America the First Amendment rules freedom of speech, press, religion and peaceable assembly. The First Amendment was adopted on (along with the rest of the Bill of Rights) December 15, 1791. No surprise the Sun in this chart is in expansive Sagittarius, and Mercury (written word) is in a positive sextile to Venus.

Using this date to create a chart (noon) Saturn falls in the first house at 12 degrees of Aries. The Uranus-Pluto square is currently at 12-13 degrees of Aries-Capricorn and falls directly on Saturn (Saturn rules structure) in this chart. So, it appears to me this was an attempt to restrict freedom of speech in America which has been going on for some time, and yes American's freedom of speech is under attack! But, this will not succeed.

In spite of the tragedies we have witnessed January 9  is a day of victory for France and all of those in the world who value freedom. We will not give up our freedoms but this shows us just how far things can go when ideas are carried to the extreme, especially in religion. More people have been killed in the name of God-directly or indirectly- than by any other force on Earth.

Uranus-Pluto has and will continue to polarize the world on many different levels. Saturn-Neptune will bring about many dark truths, and extremist religions will be front and center. It is up to us individually and collectively to dispel the idea that fundamentalism in any form can lead to peace.
