Saturn is now also leaning heavily on the chart of the United
It last did this in 1973, the year of the Yom Kippur war between
Israel and the Arab nations, and the Vietnam ceasefire. As
always, these things go in cycles...

It is undoubtedly a time of tension. But there
are very good grounds for believing that the worst is already
behind us, and that the international situation will start
to work towards the light instead of plunging into ever darker
The culprits, as usual, are Saturn and Pluto. When they were
exactly opposite at the end of 2001 and during the first half
of 2002, it seemed as though everything that could possibly
go wrong was doing so. But as Saturn and Pluto moved out of
alignment, the situation seemed to improve. So what has gone
wrong this time? How can Saturn and Pluto be in aspect again?
The fact is, they are not. But they are moving very slowly
back towards alignment, and they are as close as they are
going to get right now, which is why all that unfinished business
is back on the agenda. To make matters worse, a third planet
is acting as a go-between, helping Saturn and Pluto exchange
their awful energies. This is quite common in astrology and
if a good planet is doing it, it is seen as a good thing.
This time, however, the go-between is Mars, god of war.
So what happens next? Well, Mars has actually done all he
can now, and is moving away. Tomorrow, Saturn changes direction
– cue much rumbling and threatening noise – but will slowly
start to leave the scene, and on March 23, Pluto will start
to back off, too. What all this means is that if anything
is going to happen, it must be in the next few days – or not
