China is a LIBRA COUNTRY with the SUN, MERCURY, and NEPTUNE in LIBRA.
But how can this be? Isn't the sign of LIBRA suppose to be NICE, CHARMING, PASSIVE/AGGRESSIVE, and not wanting to CAUSE WAVES or OFFEND ANYONE?
AAHH! This is what causes people to fall "OFF GUARD"
Libra is the sign of the SCALES, and she is in a state of CONSTANT BALANCING-and that's the "trick" in understanding the Psychology of LIBRA; it is in a constant FLUX of BALANCING, this is why Libra is indecisive (in it's head, it is constantly BALANCING...)
But BALANCING FROM WHAT? (you may ask)
RIGHTFUL ACTION. What comes so easily to other signs (like VIRGO and CAPRICORN, or TAURUS, all of which are EARTH SIGNS, and therefore GROUNDING ENERGIES), Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius (which are AIR SIGNS, and LEAST GROUNDING, because air is "all over the place"), have difficulty (especially Gemini) in "solidifying and grounding" their objectives-especially if they don't visualize it first...
All AIR SIGNS must "visualize" OUTCOMES of whatever it is they want. The problem is that LIBRA, as well as her other sisters, GEMINI AND AQUARIUS, can "see" or "visualize" every angle of any situation.
In OCCULT PHYLOSOPHY, the AIR SIGNS are the HIGHEST ELEVATION of THOUGHT CREATION, and therefore, manifestation.
The most INFERIOR, paradoxically, is EARTH (because of its LOW ENERGY VIBRATION AND FREQUENCY; OR DENSE MATTER)
So why does CHINA, a LIBRA COUNTRY, have such a VIOLENT HISTORY with its neighbors?
The 8th HOUSE belongs to SCORPIO. And that's the "Achille's Heel"
China is a Libra country with a STRONG SCORPIO SIGNATURE.
Many of the PLANETS in CHINA'S HORORSCOPE are in the 8th HOUSE!
On November 16th, 2002 the MOON was in its LAST QUARTER, which in OCCULT PHYLOSOPHY corresponds to DESTRUCTION.
The MOON is in ARIES opposing the SUN, MERCURY, AND NEPTUNE in the 8th HOUSE of FINANCE, THE GLOBAL MARKETS, and BUSINESS.
On that day, the Chinese Market plummetted affecting all other major world markets. Whether or not this was by design is still being researched. But clearly the Markets were affected and many chinese stocks got a HARD HIT.
But, this aspect, although interesting and very "telling", doesn't qualify to explain the S.A.R.S. outbreak.
What IS interesting were the TRANSITS of the PLANETS that day; particularly the planet NEPTUNE traversing THE ASCENDANT.
NEPTUNE rules gases, vapors, mists, fogs, clouds, convection and condensation of 'water', LIQUIDS AND FLUIDS
The S.A.R.S. attack on the Public was through the AIR VENTS, and the open atmosphere. The biological pathogen was TRANSMITTED THROUGH THE AGENCY OF A GAS IN THE UNDERGROUND SUBWAYS IN WHICH PEOPLE HAD NO CHANCE OF ESCAPING FROM.
In Nazi Germany, the GAS CHAMBER in CONCENTRATION CAMPS killed MILLIONS.
In 1940 through 1949, NEPTUNE was TRAVERSING THE ASCENDANT OF GERMANY.
In individual birth charts, those who have committed SUICIDE BY GAS, HAD NEPTUNE TRAVERSING THEIR ASCENDANTS OR THEIR MIDHEAVEN
This ALONE satisfies the signature that this EVENT was in fact REAL but the circumstances which precipitated the events might be held to "question" (and this also is very Neptune!).
The FIXED STARS, interestingly enough, were quite benevolent (with the exception of ALGOL, a most deamonic and violent STAR. Adolph Hitler was said to have had this STAR rising at birth)
This, in fact, is very telling of the OUTCOME OF THE S.A.R.S OUTBREAK.
It seems the "GODS" were on the side of the Chinese and Japanese People.
The FIXED STAR of WEGA is a mysterious star which the ANCIENTS have "projected" to it the "Mysteries". The "secret" doctrine. Robson, Ebertin and Brady, seem to all agree that the star is associated with magical, mysterious "spells" and charm casting, deamonic beauty, and suprasensory magic.
This is beginning to lend CREDIBILITY to the notion that a fanatical, religious cult leader was truly involved in setting these events off afterall.
One problem, thou. The STAR forms no PARAN RELATIONSHIP with any PLANET, but a conjunction to VENUS in SCORPIO.
The STAR of ARCTURUS (one of the Royal Stars of Persia, as was considered in the ancient Pre Helenistic World), also forms NO PARAN RELATIONSHIP, and also conjuncts VENUS in SCORPIO.
These two STARS seem to speak more for the cult leader than the consequences sorrounding the S.A.R.S event. Both WEGA and ALDEBARAN suggest great magical charisma and charm (which on many accounts, people did confess to admit that this figure had an enigmatic, magical "hold" on his followers-enough that they would do his every bidding).
Cult Leader, Murderer, Jim Jones (Jonestown) had the STAR RISING AT BIRTH while his PLUTO SET.
He caused over 800 people to committ suicide by drinking cyanide poison in a red coolaid punch. Those that refused were killed horribly-including his guards and staff. He also had NEPTUNE ON THE ASCENDANT!
Both STARS have CURTAILED PASSAGE, thus worsening the consequences of their mythologies.
But the S.A.R.S. case came and went (thank God!). But how can this be explained?
Most other astrologers dismiss this study because it is not, according to them, to be obeying the rules of FIXED STAR delineation and synthesis.
Fine, I'll go with that, but I still keep an "eye" on this conjunction. I see it as, mythologically speaking, the SENTRY PROTECTING THE CHINESE PEOPLE (ARCTURUS), and the people's response to a charismatic, but diabolical (WEGA) figure; Whose disruptive, political
agenda was short lived. He was seeking riches and fame and honor, and, I guess, one can say that he, in fact, did achieve this notoriety (consequence of curtailed passage), but this temporary 'spotlight' was short lived (ALDEBARAN).
