Eclipses & the Arab Revolution

The cascading series of revolutions engulfing the Arab world began with a single event: the self immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Ben Arous Tunisia on December 17 2010.

Mohamed Bouazizi's ImmolationHe died of his wounds on January 4 2011 at 5.30 pm. Mohamed Bouazizi’s public tragedy  triggered a remarkable people’s revolution that is reverberating across North Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
What is extraordinary about Mohamed Bouazizi’s public suicide attempt and his subsequent death is that the attempted suicide took place 4 days before the  lunar eclipse of 21 December 2010 and his death took place on the day of the solar eclipse on January 4 2011.
Mohamed Bouazizi's deathThe power of eclipses in this dramatic and unexpected turn of historic events is evident.
The immolation chart has no known birth time and is set for noon, 4 days prior to the lunar eclipse at 29 degrees of Gemini. The Moon’s position is approximate.
Note that the Sun is in close sextile aspect with Neptune and squaring the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction.  Mars directs its fire to vengeful Venus in Scorpio. The Sun is in antiscia conjunction with Pluto, planet of radical change and transformation.
In the death chart the besieged Moon of the partial solar eclipse transfers Saturn’s light to Mars. Saturn is stationing retrograde and Mars is powerful in the sign of its exaltation and accidental placement in the 7th house. The Moon is seriously debilitated in Capricorn and is besieged by aspect between the 2 malefics. Mars, the traditional planet associated with war strife and revolution, then applies its energy to Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion. Jupiter is one minute from separating from Uranus, the modern planet of revolution.
Although there is not the space in this short article, these horoscopes need to be placed with the broader context of national and ingress charts and those charts relevant to Arabian issues.
What is particularly relevant here is that eclipses are powerful triggers to historic events. We are witnessing history in the making.
