Summary – back in September, I looked at the ingress chart for the United States covering the last quarter of calendar 2017 in regards to whether it would find itself at war during that period. At that time, the answer was probably not although it remained a realistic possibility. Now, for the next calendar quarter, the situation has changed and the chances of war have increased (astrologically) three-fold. Not only that but the chances of the present US government being ‘overthrown’ have become a probability. This could be the result of a revolution of some kind or, possibly, the death of the leader. Subterfuge is an unfortunate reality.
Discussion – The Berlin astrologer, EH Troinski, worked extensively with ingress charts to predict war. Using the Placidus house system, he concentrated on charts set for the time of the Sun’s ingress into the four cardinal signs at the location of the capital city of the country in question. His research has indicated that several key planetary patterns recurred predicting war.
This chart is set for the United States (Washington, DC) for the Sun’s ingress into Capricorn for 2017 – the exact moment of the winter solstice. This should give clues as to the dynamics in play for the US from then through the spring equinox in 2018 (20 March).
The following indicators of war for the US during this period:
- Saturn in the 10th house with the Sun in an angular house (in this case the Sun is also the 10th house, which is angular). According to Troinski, this suggests the overthrow of the government either by revolution or the death of the leader. Note in this chart that Saturn is exactly conjunct (11 minutes of arc) the Sun. Saturn, seeking to restructure social order, will never be stronger than now, having just entered Capricorn, its sign of rulership. It hasn’t been here for 30 years. But Saturn in conjunction with the Sun at the winter solstice has only occurred three times in recent history: 1664, 1458, and 1105. Not only is this a momentous event, but it is occurring in America’s 10th house – house of the ‘ruling class’, national prestige, and international reputation. Not good.
- Saturn in the 10th house and Mars in the 8th house – danger of war and attacks on the head of state.
- A heavy concentration of planets in the 8th house most particularly, Mars, Jupiter, and the Sun. This is what Troinski calls the ‘pure war-combination’. In this chart, the Sun is not in the 8th but Mars and Jupiter are. Along with the other two strong indicators of war, above, this may act as a confirmation.
From what I know, Troinski did not use Neptune in his work. But it seems relevant to me that Neptune is at the end of the 12th house, conjunct to the Ascendant (in this house system, also the cusp of the 1st house).
In mundane astrology, Neptune is linked with secret plots, fraud, and illicit dealings. It also is associated with loss. In natal astrology, Neptune is associated with delusion and illusion and in a national chart, it ought to carry pretty much the same meaning. The 12th house is associated with all that is hidden – criminals, spies, and secret enemies. The USA is in for some serious subterfuge during the next quarter – whether or not it has anything to do with war. This is all being orchestrated ‘behind the scenes’ – someplace – where at least for now, it will remain. Because the 1st house symbolises the prosperity and health of the nation as a whole, it looks even worse. Quite probably, the collective citizens of the US will be duped with the end result being loss and misfortune.
That Mercury is involved with Neptune by square, this must have something to do with garbled or even purposeful miscommunication and because Mercury is in the 9th house, such miscommunication will cross international borders.
