The terror attack in Lahore, Pakistan today shows mundane astrology at work. I’m using the chart for the horoscope for the independence of Pakistan on 15 August 1947 in Karachi, with the time of 9:33 am supplied by Star IQ. This mundane horoscope has been used to accurately predict events in Pakistan as shown by Noel Tyl, “We can anticipate the Apex of these ever-so-difficult developments to be October 2009 with tr Saturn conjunct the Ascendant and square the Midheaven” As detailed in Noel’s Forum  the Peshawar market bombing of 28 oct 2009 occurred with transiting Saturn conjunct the Ascendant by 36′.
The Lahore attack today occurred at “1.45 pm local time” Chennaionline]. Transiting Uranus was opposite the Pakistan Ascendant (conjunct the Descendant) by 27′. Uranus explosion and Descendant open enemies. (These transits are precession corrected by 53′). Neptune was opposite the Pakistan Part of Fortune by 53′. This attack is part of a religious war, an attack on a Mosque. The Midheaven was conjunct Pakistan Mars by 11′ and conjunct the Pakistan Midheaven by 46′. The Ascendant was conjunct the Pakistan Ascendant by 41′. These last two transits support the accuracy of the 9:33 am time for the Pakistan chart. This chart for Pakistan definitely looks like a winner, so what does it say about the country?
The Pakistan Horoscope
Mars conjunct the Midheaven says this is a military government, and the rulers are military men, correct. Mars and the Midheaven are also conjunct Uranus which says terrorism and explosions are a major issue fot the government, correct. “ Mars: The armed forces and police; violent crime, war, industrial concerns; when associated with Uranus may cause explosions, terrorism” [Mundane Astrology - Wikipedia].
The Ascendant is exactly square the Midheaven putting the very identity of the nation at odds with it’s government and rulers. So very true with the continual struggle for control of power, assassinations and military coups.
Saturn is conjunct Pluto by 18′ signifying hardship, and with Venus in this conjunction, peace and harmony face intense and powerful obstacles. Saturn is the system of government, and Pluto is ultimate power, dictators, and influence from the global superpowers and organizations. The USA funds the Pakistan goverment to wage war on Islamic extremists within the nation, and this is a major source of internal strife for the governemt. The fixed star on Saturn and Pluto confirms this. Acubens is a malefic star, made moreso with this tight conjunction of Saturn and Pluto, “in combat at someone else’s behest…under pressure of others demanding ‘from behind’.”
The deeply religious and philosophical nature of the people of Pakistan is a strong point as shown by the trine from Moon to Jupiter. This should also manifest as good conditions for the women of Pakistan. “The Pakistani women of today enjoy a better status than most Muslim and Middle Eastern women.” [Women in Pakistan - Wikipedia]
There is an increased risk or further terrorist activity in the weeks ahead with the 08 June Jupiter Uranus conjunction falling on the Pakistan Descendant by just 10′. That should be the most perilous time ahead. Jupier and Uranus will then have two more hits to the Descendant and that will be out of the way by April 2011, still dangerous but at least they won’t hit together like they do in a couple of weeks. Saturn has one more pass of the Ascendant on 27 July 2010 which is another danger period. However, the major carnage we saw last year was mainly due to transiting Pluto opposing the Mars and Midheaven. This period saw the injection of 7.5 billion dollars from the USA, followed two days later by a major military offensive by the Pakistani’s on Taliban strongholds in the border regions with Afghansitan. Pluto is retrograding at the moment, but stations direct almost 2 degrees short of opposing the Pakistan Mars. Things should not be as bad long term , the worst from destructive Pluto is be behind this nation. Just got to get through this Jupiter Uranus conjunction on the Descendant.
