Middle East Crisis – January 2020

On January 3, 2020 at about 1:40 AM in Baghdad a drone strike took out Iran’s number two leader and the leader of the world’s largest terrorist organization. At this time, Mercury/Jupiter and the South Node were conjunct in Capricorn and the Moon was in warlike Aries, square Mercury and Jupiter, Scorpio was rising (intense, powerful) and Uranus on the Descendant (unexpected events). Mars was in the very difficult 29 degrees Scorpio – an extremely powerful degree and especially in transit.

Mars is the planet of war, violence, aggression, heroism and courage. The position of Mars is incredibly important. It will be in Sagittarius for the next few weeks emphasizing the need to find the Truth in the midst of lies. Mars moves into Capricorn on February 17 and will join all the other planets in Capricorn. In the coming few weeks there will be many developments and expect retaliation. The upcoming Lunar Eclipse with tense energy and the lineup of powerful planets in Capricorn will add fuel to the fire. This begins an astrological acceleration of energy. Remain calm during this very difficult month.

Iran is ruled by Aries and Aquarius and the United States east of the Mississippi is ruled by Gemini, Sagittarius and Libra. When Iran responded with missile strikes on January 8 at 1:30 AM, the Moon in Gemini was in the 8th house of death, fear and secrets, opposing Mars (war) in Sagittarius and squaring Neptune (dissolution and delusion) in Capricorn (government). Venus (values) was in Aquarius in the 4th house of the homeland. No Americans were injured in the attack and some of the missiles did not explode. Perhaps this was an attempt for Iran to save face?
