Astrology, Events and Places: The Astrogeography of Jerusalem and Future Transits of the outer planets in relation to the ancient capital of Israel
Astrogeographical position of Jerusalem for morphogenetic field level 1 which describes the international and supraregional topics of the City: Jerusalem is located at 2° in dynamical, male fire sign Aries the sign of new starts. action, warfare and speed and at 18° in spiritual air sign Aquarius the sign of the sky, heaven, paradise, self-finding, revolution, abstraction and reconnection with the fuller potential of humans. The combination of Aries with Aquarius stands for topics of revolution, rebellion and uprising, new beginnings and mutation.
Jerusalem is located at 2° Aries and 18° Aquarius. During the process of the foundation of the Republic of Israel in 1948 not one of the outer planets was in tight direct aspect (conjunction, opposition, square) to Jerusalem. This indicates that the foundation process did not originate in Jerusalem or Israel itself but rather outside of the country. Maybe the most important historical factor that led to the foundation of Israel was the genocide of the European Jews by the fascist german regime between 31 July 1941 (Göring authorization) and 7 May 1945 (german military capitulation).
The infamous Wannsee Conference on 20 January 1942 was held to organize the genocide. The Wannsee Conference was held with Neptune conjunct Berlin and in opposition to Jerusalem. The chart below is calculated for a 2° Aries ascendant with the astrogeographic coordinate of Jerusalem rising. Neptune at 29°46`Virgo was in exact transit over the position of Berlin at 29° Virgo on that day describing the paralysis, manipulation, subjugation and destruction of Berlin and along with it of Germany`s national identity, culture, territorial integrity and moral rights through the Wannsee Conference. Berlin`s astrogeographic position located at 29° Virgo falls in inealy exact opposition to the coordinate of Jerusalem at 2° Aries. This made Berlin and german governments appear extremely negative in relation to the ancient center and modern capital of the State of israel for a period in history when Neptune was traniting conjunct Berlin and in opposition to Jerusalem. But it should not be misinterpreted as generally negative in all regards. There is also the option and potential of this aspect being effectively complementary and used as an aspect of replenishment. This can be seen from the Grand Cross of the capitals of the founding members the European Union I describe in my blog about the astrogeographical position of Berlin: “In fact the capitals of the founding members (Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands) of the European Union are linked together by a Grand Cross: Rome (29°Gemini + 15°Gemini), Paris (27°Sagittarius + 28°Aquarius), Berlin (29° Virgo + 10° Cancer) and Brussels (21°Pisces + 10°Scorpio with Amsterdam at 29°Pisces + 4°Libra)”.
Neptune`s transit in opposition to Jerusalem`s astrogeographical coordinate at 2° Aries between October1941 (28°) and June 1946 (5° Libra) is to be seen as the major astrogeographical indicator for the genocide in regard to Jerusalem and can apart from that be discussed astrologically in a number of dimensions. Neptune could be taken as a valid astrological indicator for the gas chambers at Auschwitz, the territorial homelessnes of the jewish people, the spiritual independence of the Jews from other religions, the scapegoat function of the Jews in European societies to name just the most important ones.
The chart below is a ficticious projection from Neptune`s transit over the position of the foundation of modern Israel at 10° Libra and in opposition to Jerusalem as the major astrogeographical factor for the foundation of modern Israel. It is calculated for the day of the spring equinox on 20 March 1000 BC during the period of Neptune`s transit over the 2° Libra position marking the beginning of the period in which Jerusalem was made capital of Israel by King David which is dated historically as falling around the year 1000 BC.
The astrological chart above is for the period in which Jerusalem was made capital of Israel as King David moved the capital from Hebron to Jerusalem. The chart is calculated for the day of the spring equinox of 20 March 1000 BC with Acendant on 2° Aries the astrogeographical position of Jerusalem. Note that apart from Neptune`s destabilizing transit in opposition to Jerusalem Uranus as a second major aspect of an outer planet had been in transit in conjunction with Jerusalem`s position at 2° Aries since 1005 BC. These 2 transits occuring in opposition with each other between 1006 BC and 1003 BC are to be seen as the astrogeographical indicators for the period of the conquest of Jerusalem by King David.
The last serious attempts for a peace process in Israel were brought forward through the Oslo Accords since 1993 as an effect of the Gulf War in 1991. The negative effects of the Bush presidency (2001-2009) turned back any positive results of this process as their intention and result was a fundamental destabilization of the region.
The beginning of the Bush presidency fell into the period of the transit of Uranus conjunct the position of Jerusalem at 18° Aquarius between April 1999 (16°) and November 2001 (21°). As a conjunction this transit may have had a lot of potential for establishing stable solutions in Palestine but was used to destroy the road to peace by the right wing governments in the USA and Israel.
The next important transit of Uranus in conjunction with Jerusalem between March 2011 (29° Pisces) and March 2013 (6° Aries) took place during the square of Pluto to the 2° Aries coordinate which lasted from January 2008 (0° Capricorn) until September 2012 (6° Capricorn).
Really intensely tight transits of the outer planet to Jerusalem will not on the agenda until Uranus` square to the 18° Aquarius position between May 2022 (15° Taurus) and April 2024 (21°Taurus) which may threaten Israelian Settlement (Taurus) Policy.
Right after this Uranus transit Neptune in conjunction to Jerusalem`s 2° Aries coordinate could bring intense challenges of the position of the Israeli government between February 2025 and February 2028 and make a more stable solution and treaty inevitable for Israel.
