The protests in Egypt this January 2011 have come following the uprising and revolution in Tunisia in December 2010. This popular revolutionary movement spreading across the Arabic world is an early manifestation of the major planetary influence between now and 2015, Uranus square Pluto. This is a major generational change where we will see dramatic political and social upheavals. These grass roots movements battling authoritarian power structures is a perfect example of this planetary combination.

To find out why Egypt is the focus now we can look at the national horoscope of Egypt. This Egyptian horoscope is based on the June 1956 Proclamation of the Republic
[1]. The identity of the country, signified by the Sun, has been brought into focus this first half of 2011 because the December 2010 Lunar Eclipse was conjunct this Sun. As Marina wrote on this Ball Breaking eclipse, “My first thoughts on this was dialogue and confrontation”. That lunar eclipse and the Egyptian Sun are both on the fixed star Betelgeuse, Orion Constellation “associated with war and carnage.”

The Sun in the Egyptian horoscope also represents major events and the leader. So the eclipse portended a major event, and put the focus on president Mubarak who has ruled Egypt with dictatorial powers since 1981. The protests in Egypt now are directly related to the abuse of power from the autocratic regime, headed by Mubarak. The citizens are revolting against the state of emergency laws, which have not been lifted since 1981, and which restrict constitutional protections and grants police extensive powers. Eclipses on the Sun in a mundane chart “often signify the death or displacement of the head of state” [2].

Uranus brings radical change, it rules revolution and anarchy, but also the democratic popular movement which is pushing for this change. Uranus is now square the Egyptian Sun and will be through February. Jupiter has been amplifying the tensions, also square the Sun in the Egyptian Horoscope this January. Another trigger for this unrest was the January 19 Full Moon at 29 Cancer, square the Egyptian Ascendant.

I mentioned in Uranus square Pluto about the role of the internet in these coming political and social upheavals, “One big advantage we have today is global networking that the internet provides. It will be most important that this Uranian freedom is upheld, and it will be challenged by Plutonian organizations and governments.” The protests in Egypt are being coordinated on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, and the Egyptian government is attempting to shut these sites down in their country.

More anger, violence and revolution would seem to be in store for the year ahead in Egypt. Mars in the Egyptian horoscope rules violence and the police, and this Mars is being harshly aspect this year. Jupiter is square it now, and for the first two weeks of February. More dangerous is the square from Uranus which does indicate explosive violence. Uranus will square the Egyptian Mars in May this year, and again in September 2011 when elections are due. The anger of the people, represented by Mars, had built up in the last year with Pluto opposite Mars, built up to the point of no return.

  1. It could be the lack of Neptune, Uranus and 12 house influences on natal Mercury that makes up for an skeptic’s mind. I normally shield my personal interest in astrology by actually barring people from asking me about it. Since my love and interests for astrology is purely a personal hobby, I just remind them of the golden rule. I have met skeptics, lots of them and still manages to keep in contacts and even in close personal relationships with them to this day. Whenever they attempted to press me more about it, I steer the focus back to my own personality and never made an attempt to defend the subject in question in any way. I only highlight the fact that I am entirely different from them and leave it at that. For kids though I have a different explanation – I tell them that astrology is an ancient branch of combined math/science/esoteria that is not taught as part of a national curriculum; but which is available as an optional study meant only for highly intellectual individuals. That normally shuts them up for days.

  2. Hi Jamie…have you heard of Edgar Cayce?….just reading about him and his predictions…things about Egypt and the Great Sphinzx of Giza, massive Earthquake in California…Earth shifting on it’s axis….are you familiar with him? Barb

    • Hi again Barb, i sure have heard of Edgar Cayce, read a few of the book with his readings when I was first getting into astrology. He “saw”his clients birth charts and spoke about them, but astrologers could never understand his interpretation. It’s turns out he was seeing their Draconic charts, very soul-centered astrology.

  3. Jamie…also saw tonight on news that another cyclone due to hit Queensland this weekend….didn’t say how bad…think these things happening are all “signes”…getting pretty wierd…Barb

Will move to preserve/protect and is ready for his next life phase, also like mubarak will protect women, is conservtive, will reject radical islam….love that pisces moon natal conq. wooooweee

    • You’re on the ball with the astrology on this story Lucy. Thanks for keeping me updated. Just posted his chart, Essam Sharaf Horoscope. Not so sure about rejecting radical Islam though, Sun conjunct Uranus seems for radical than conservative.
