People go to Revolutionary Action in Egypt
Another look at the Astro*Cartography chart for February
Mars in the Heart of the Sun in Aquarius fights for a Democratic Cause

In the first days of February, planet Mars will join with the Sun in the sign of Aquarius. From February 3th-5th it is in a condition we call Cazimi, or "In the Heart of the Sun." The Sun is in the sign of its detriment in Aquarius, in a state of weakness - so the question is whether the alignment portends for good or bad. The comparison is the condition that occurs when Mars is in the sign of Libra, this being the detriment and 'state of weakness' of Mars. The Warrior impulse may be weakened in the sign, although it is more correct to say that is reverted - because her Mars will 'Fight for Peace', 'Fight for Justice' or 'Fight for beauty'.

With Mars joined to the Sun in Aquarius it is obvious that the public uproar in Egypt is in protest to the regime and leadership in the nation. It is a Fight for Democracy and New Order. However, let's have another look at the Astro*Cartography for the New Moon in February, posted on Jan 27.,  and  zoom in on Africa. The New Moon marks the beginning of the New Year in the Chinese calendar.


Astro*Cartography Chart for New Moon of February 3. 2011

As I pointed out in my post earlier in the week, Egypt comes close to the lines of planets Saturn and Pluto, that in the chart of the Solar Eclipse in January intersected over the Domodedovo Airport in Moscow. The Domodevedo Airport was subjected to an act of terrorist bombing on January 24. In the chart for the New Moon in February the point of intersection lies on the boarders between Egypt, Libya and Sudan - yet is it easy to see how Pluto is rising on a horizon-line that crosses directly over Cairo.

To make this more visual, I also include a conventional chart

The chart shows how Pluto is rising in the East and indicates a great impelling feeling to uproar and rebel among the people, who urge for reform and transformation. It is a forced situation that is out of control. Emotions of repression are strong and are being forced to the surface. The area has been converted into a war zone and the nation is in a state of of emergency. Tourist planes heading to the area are turning around and heading home, due to the actions of open fire and looting - and it is impossible to guarantee for the safety or free passage of visitors and citizens alike.
