Osama and Al Quaeda - crushed

by Marjorie Orr May 02, 2011 06:30 AM EST

It was always clear from the 1988 Al Quaeda chart (11 Aug) that 2011/12 was going to be its nadir. It has an aggressive and inflammatory, highly emotional Venus opposition Neptune square Mars in Aries. Transiting Pluto is at the moment in a devastatingly confusing and undermining conjunction to that Neptune. That also carries the effect of tr Pluto square Mars since it pulls on the entire T Square. Pluto on Mars with Neptune involved means totally crushed.

Tr Pluto doesn’t get to the square to the Al Quaeda Mars until 2012 by which time tr Uranus is also in opposition to Mars and square Neptune – so there could be some retaliations but from this chart they are effectively finished.

The Egyptian Ayman Al-Zawahiri, Bin Laden’s second in command and the brains behind Al Quaeda who now presumably steps up, also has strong Mars Pluto and Pluto Neptune influences on his chart at the moment and over the coming year. So he’ll be thrown into confusion and paralysis by Bin Laden’s death and the aftermath. Born 19 Jun 1951 he’s a Sun Mars in Gemini square Saturn so excitable, argumentative, hard; with a visionary/delusional Neptune opposition Jupiter in crusading Aries in a fanatical square to a divisive, can-be-anarchic Uranus. Tr Saturn is at the moment opposition his Jupiter bringing discouragement.

There may be one last standoff in 2011 or more likely 2012. But not one that is likely to end in anything but failure.

Bin Laden’s own birth details are not verified though he himself said 10 March 1957. That makes him a Sun Venus in Pisces square Saturn in holier-than-thou Sagittarius; with a ruthless Mars in Taurus square Pluto; and a fanatical Uranus square Neptune. There’s not much showing on that chart at the moment apart from high risk transits to Mars midpoints and perhaps Neptune and/or Uranus transits to his Moon.

9/11 occurred on the bleak, war-mongering Saturn opposition Pluto with a wide holy-crusading Mars opposition Jupiter. Both those aspects had drawn closer when the war on Afghanistan was launched in early October in an attempt to get Bin Laden.

Now we have moved onto the next Saturn hard aspect in square to Pluto and Bin Laden was killed yesterday on the exact Mars Jupiter conjunction – so there is a wonderful astrological symmetry about it.

As to how it will affect the already shaky relationship between the USA and Pakistan? That relationship chart has tr Uranus and tr Pluto both leaning on the stubbornly fixed composite T Square of Pluto opposition Moon square Sun Mercury this year. So there will be increasing pressures for change which will be obstinately resisted. Tr Uranus is exactly at the moment square the composite North Node – so it is a real moment of destiny for the partnership which has garnered Pakistan billions if not trillions in US aid.

Pakistan is heading into meltdown over the next two years with tr Uranus and tr Pluto both bouncing off its 10th house Mars square Neptune – so massive confusion, uncertainty, failure. With a deeply unpleasant Solar Arc Saturn Pluto conjunct its Neptune by 2013/14 which will raise internal concerns to an even higher level.

The USA is deeply unpopular because of drone attacks and civilian casualties in Pakistan. But Bin Laden’s death may spell the beginning of the end of the Afghanistan project which is costing more than the US can afford and interest already waning may spiral down even faster.
