Astrologers deal with people’s natal charts and possible events or those that already happened. Events from the past can teach us a lot. The Age of Aquarius has brought new technologies, artificial intelligence, aerodynamic advancement, nuclear technology and armament. We are in the first phase of the new age with no knowledge of what awaits our posterity in the next century. Great inventions can cause catastrophic destruction. One such disaster occurred on April 26, 1986, at 1.23 a.m. in Chornobyl, today’s Ukraine. The chart of that moment is attached.
We start from Ascendant, which always gives the most answers. Ascendant of the moment is in Sagittarius, the sign we most often deem the happiest. It can also indicate an expansion of explosion or radioactive atoms and clouds that spread all over Europe and the whole world in just two days.
Jupiter, the ruling planet of Ascendant, is in Pisces (deadly effect, not visible), which caused harmful particles (Neptune) to spread everywhere (Pisces – invisible) and to endanger the health of millions of people worldwide (Pisces – disease). Jupiter is at 14 degrees Pisces (the 15th degree of Pisces- an exaltation of Pluto – death), indicating how deadly this event was.
Let’s go back to Ascendant. It starts at 22 degrees, the degree of Sagittarius. In astrology, this is the degree of death, murder or murdered person. It indicates something lethal. At the very Ascendant, Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, is at 22 degrees.
At 22 degrees, Uranus, representing power plants, explosions, and nuclear power plants, brought about a blast with consequences which have been present ever since.
The second ruling planet of the 1st house is Saturn at 8 degrees Sagittarius, in the 12th house, which speaks of long-lasting life-threatening effects.
Neptune and exalted Mars in Capricorn in the 1st house indicate military involvement to resolve the crisis. They also point to the loss of many lives sacrificed to alleviate the consequences of the explosion. Analyzing the chart of an event, we look for Mars. This planet signifies the nation, ordinary people and the effects the event may have upon them. Mars is at 24 degrees (degree of Pisces – disease) in Scorpio (deadly disease) in the 11th house (the house of Aquarius – radiation).
Unfortunately, no one can vouchsafe that such events will never happen again. What caused the devastating disaster? Was it a human error? Can we trust machines, computers, smart phones or new technologies? Does the future from the movie Terminator await us? What can we do for the safety of the planet and our survival?
