Wikipedia shows the formation of ISIS or Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant on January 3, 2014 when the Iraqi government lost control of the city of Fallujah after days of fighting.
Much remains hidden about the terrorist group, its history and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi ( who walked away from a US detention camp in 2009 telling the guards, 'see you in New York') who lives in seclusion in a secret location, and it's possible that in the future other charts will emerge that show different beginnings. This chart also shows the occupation of Fallujah, Iraq.
Using 12 noon as the time, this chart shows an 18 degree Aries ascendant, and Aries is ruled by Mars, the God of War. (by early evening the ISIS flag flew over the city the story and was being reported around the world)
The Sun of this chart is 12 degrees of Capricorn, with Pluto at 11 degrees, Mercury 15 degrees and Venus at 25 degrees of the same sign in the 10th house of this chart, that shows a determined purpose and to an extent, success. The Sun also shows the head of the organization, and next to Pluto would show a ruthless and determined leader.
Pluto/Sun/Mercury shows a forceful presence that adheres to an ideological viewpoint (Mercury) with the intent of forcing their will (Pluto) on others in a vicious and violent manner (Pluto). There is a reason astrologers refer to Pluto as the 'God of the Underworld."
Venus sextile Saturn and Jupiter trine Saturn shows the group well funded. Mercury sextile Saturn shows well thought out plans. They know what they want to do.
The four planets in Capricorn form a grand cross with Mars at 12 Libra, Jupiter, at 12 Cancer and Uranus at 8 Aries. A grand cross can be described as a cross formation that aspects 4 planets all of which become focal point of the chart and this chart (group) was born of the Grand Cross that occurred this year and will have long lasting ramifications in the world.
Individuals and entries whose charts possess a grand cross are generally considered driven, self contained, self motivated and do not rely on others. It is a resourceful and willful pattern, and these individuals (organizations) often relate to the world as if it was a series of challenges and obstacles demanding to be conquered which is how we have seen ISIS operate.
Saturn in Scorpio at 20 degrees would well describe this group as Scorpio rules the eight house of death. If we change the time to 11 AM rather than 12 noon, it places Saturn in the eighth house (death), which better describes their focus. That would give this chart a Pisces ascendant, and Pisces rules all forms of religion, faith and ideology. That would also place Mars in the seventh house of 'open enemies,' opposing Uranus and show a volatile fighting force prone to many enemies and explosive situations, placing the grand cross, the prominent configuration in the chart in Cardinal houses. (Cardinal houses are 1-4-7 and 10 and denote greater significance)
The moon of this chart lies in Aquarius the sign of a 'world view,' and this group is attracting fighters, and disgruntled and misplaced individuals from all over the world who are lacking roots and stability. Their goal is worldwide domination of all Muslims and forming their own state. The moon squares Saturn showing a lack of emotion, coldness, and a lack of regard for women. Aquarius is a sign often found in war times and situations and is ruled by Uranus the planet of coups and revolutions.
Neptune in Pisces in the 12th house shows this group driven by secret ideologies (and meeting places), however misguided.
Jupiter in Cancer is exalted here, and shows a type of patriotism and loyalty to their ideas and the idea of a caliphate, or a single Islamic state governed by a Caliph, a successor" – to Muhammad.
Jupiter opposing Pluto shows a rise in extreme violence and terrorism in the world, which I wrote about in January of 2014 and 2013 as this group was making their presence known.
Jupiter opposing Mercury shows a tendency to overdo situations, over exaggerate and a tendency toward sloppy thinking, or to notice some facts and ignore others, such as the fact that scholars of Islam state the doctrine employed by ISIS exists nowhere in the Koran.
Mars-Mercury square Pluto is the most violent of transits, driven by ideology, and Mars-Pluto transits are often found in victims and perpetrators of violent assault.
This is an evil and violent group that must be stopped before their influence spreads. Again, I refer back to 1934 when Hitler was allowed to rise to power by the rest of the world, and the last Grand Cross involved the same planets as the grand cross of 2014.
ISIS's weaknesses lie in the many enemies they create worldwide, and Mars opposing Uranus can show convoluted and unexpected action not always as well organized as they wish us to believe. Mars in Libra is at its fall here, and loses strength.
Looking at this chart the Sun, Pluto and Mercury oppose the Sun in the US natal chart, and this shows us a vicious enemy and certain conflict. At the time of this post (September 2014) the US is engaging in an air bombing campaign. There will be further conflict when the Uranus-Pluto square falls on the US Sun late this year.
Some significant dates that show events in this chart include the week of September 8, 2014 as Mercury sets off the Uranus-Pluto square, the eclipse of October 8, 2014 and November 23, late September-early October as Saturn returns to its natal placement, November 9-16 as Mars conjuncts Capricorn planets, and November 27- December 27 as the Uranus-Pluto square falls on the Sun of this chart. The leadership at this time may end or change as the coalition of countries begins to take significant action against this terrorist organization.
