The East and the West = Aldebaran and Antares Originally Published: January 14th, 2013 I Astrolog Smiljana Gavrančić

The East and the West = Aldebaran and Antares
Originally Published: January 14th, 2013 I Astrolog Smiljana Gavrančić

The new 2013 started actually on December 21, 2012 when the Sun came at 0° Capricorn 00'00" (winter solstice), after which the day started to be longer. That day was unique because apart from having "Yod" (Y) configuration in the skies, there was also configuration "Bumerang" (a point across the planet that is the apex of yod, and that enables solution). Since the key opposition in this configuration was at the axis of fixed stars Aldebaran ("The keeper of the East" -- 9° Gemini) and Antares ("The keeper of the West" -- 9° Sagittarius), it opened the possibility that at mundane level some "tense situations" become resolved during 2013, both in the East and West, so the balance can be restored…



The West

Since yod carries some "problem" and requires internal adjustment, and since in the chart for the arrival of the Sun at 0° Capricorn 00'00" (made for Greenwich, because it is the depiction of the whole world) slower planets -- Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto, at 8° (transformation) were involved in this configuration, this looked as the "call for change", at the collective level. Jupiter is indeed the essential signifier for big money, and in the USA chart also the ruler of 2nd house (country financial system) and on December 21, 2012 it came exactly to Uranus (changes) in USA chart in the 8th house (house also describing finances) -- at 8° Gemini, becoming the planet in the apex of yod, and as we know, the key is the planet in the apex of yod. Saturn (debts) came to USA ascendant, at 8° Scorpio, which is the picture of Washington itself, and Pluto (transformation) was at 8° Capricorn, at the very beginning of the Aquila constellation, also connected to US.



All that was the picture of potential "fiscal cliff" in United States that was largely discussed… But, January 1, 2013 came with news of agreement between White House (President Obama) and Congress, so "fiscal cliff" threatening to send USA economy towards new recession and to cause the wave of unemployment was avoided… Any "problem" in US would have been reflected on the rest of the world, for if you remember, the whole story of the world debt crisis originated in this country, so the "financial peace" in USA is the basis for the "financial peace" in the rest of the world… So, the budget agreement was achieved, and it was facilitated by the fact that on December 21, 2012 there was boomerang in the skies: through 8° Sagittarius, that makes half-sextile (30°) with 8° Scorpio (one arm of yod) on one side and 8° Capricorn (other arm of yod) on the other side, a "channel" for agreement was created (exactly across Jupiter -- finances at 8° Gemini, the apex of yod, there was conjunction of Venus at 6° Sagittarius and Mercury at 14° Sagittarius, with the orb of 8° -- transformation, changes that led to the agreement).





The very conjunction of Venus and Mercury is depiction of some harmonious agreement, isn't it? Accent on 8° certainly speaks of finances, change, transformation…

But, as already mentioned at the beginning of this article, the axis Aldebaran/Antares was "called for" here. As we know, these are two (out of four) royal stars, one being the "keeper of the East" (Aldebaran) presently at 9° Gemini 57', where Jupiter in the apex of the yod was on December 21, 2012, and the other being the "keeper of the West" (Antares) presently at 9° Sagittarius 56', and that was "awakened" on the same date by boomerang at 8° Sagittarius! Investigation I performed further on speaks of the importance of this very axis (Aldebaran/Antares) for the Middle East, and for the event called "Arabian spring", that still continues, and it started on December 17, 2010 in Tunisia, right before the famous "millennium lunar eclipse" (December 21, 2010), which certainly presented the announcement for the major changes on mundane level…

The East

Although everything started in Tunisia, Egypt is more important for this story, because in the chart of this country Jupiter is at 9° Gemini 24', exactly at Aldebaran -- the great "keeper of the East".


The Egypt, being the largest country in the Middle East, is certainly regarded as a "Peace keeper" of the region by the rest of the world. If we now go back far in the past, to the time of Alexander (Jupiter) the Great (Jupiter), then in the very Jupiter on Aldebaran (the "Keeper of the East") we would have the depiction of this great ruler, but also of the Alexandrian Library, of which this country is famous, for it was the largest (Jupiter… ) library in the world (… in Gemini). There is no doubt that the very nature of Jupiter (knowledge) on this star presents the Egypt as the ancient "Keeper of the East", in relation to the culture that originated there and has great impact on the whole civilization.

But, what is happening in Egypt the day after December 21, 2012 is the second round of referendum on draft constitution by the new President Mohamed Morsi, which again deeply divided the country into two sides, for by this Constitution the country is driven back to the Sharia law, which would also be the picture of Jupiter (Constitution, as the fundamental law of any country) on Aldebaran ("Keeper of the East"). Protesters filled the streets of the capital Cairo again, and minor progression for December 21, 2012 of this country speaks of that.



Again, the axis Aldebaran/Antares is activated one more time, this time through the Sun of minor progression of Egypt that came at 8° Sagittarius (Antares), and natal Jupiter of the Egypt, that came to Aldebaran (8° Gemini). This axis awaken the moment in which the decision is made whether the country would turn to "deeply eastern" Sharia law or to western, secular system. Since the natal Jupiter (Constitution of the country) here is exactly on Aldebaran (the Keeper of the East), the draft constitution gets the needed majority, the President signs it and it was put into force. But, on the other side the Sun accents the strong opposition, and if we are to judge by boomerang that offers solution from 8° Sagittarius, it is to be expected that the solution will be found, and that the "disputable constitution" favoring Sharia law will have the "channel" through which it would bring to balance those who supported it with those who did not…

Syrian civil war

The example of another Arabian country, Syria, depicts how important the axis Aldebaran/Antares is regarding the relations of the East and the West, and how potentially "explosive" it is when activated in horoscopes of countries that are located at junctions of civilizations.

Syria is officially in civil war from March 15, 2011. Aldebaran/Antares axis was activated again in its chart, this time through secondary progression, having the axis ascendant/descendant exactly on these stars. Since the mentioned boomerang configuration was present also in the skies in that time, it is to be expected that some solution for the crisis in this country would turn up this year.



Will Russia be mediator?

For a long time the solution for the problems in Syria is being looked for… Western countries, mainly US and European Union (8° Scorpio is US ascendant, but the Sun -- the ruler of EU is also at this degree, so this is also depiction of Brussels) -- support the Syrian rebels and leaving of the President Bashar al-Assad, as well as they support military intervention against the regime in Syria (Pluto - change, at 8° - change, the Sun - President in Syria's chart), while the Russia feels no side in this war is winner, it opposes Western military intervention and somehow it still keeps itself "aside", although the rest of the world expects Russia to solve this problem…

The importance of Russia in this problem is confirmed by the fact that UN Special Envoy to Syria, the famous diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi, after being in Syria and having talks with both sides, goes to Moscow and talks to Sergey Lavrov -- Russian Foreign Minister! That Russia might be the key here and balance everything between United States, European Union (8° Scorpio) on one side and Syria (8° Capricorn) on the other side may be seen from the fact that Russia's secondary Moon was at 7° Sagittarius 50'on December 12, 2012 -- almost at 8° Sagittarius, which is the very spot in boomerang that brings the solution.



Finally, in Russia's chart the Mars (conflicts) is in 7th -- relations with abroad, diplomacy, and the ruler is in 8th --  conflicts, at 8° Aries, which is the exact trine with 8° Sagittarius, so this country is very "called for" to mediate the solution for the Syrian civil war.

The East -- the West

That the primary axis that represent the East and the West in the skies is represented with those two royal stars -- Aldebaran and Antares, is also confirmed by the fact that Uranus in US chart, being in 8th house (war) at Aldebaran, describes the first "uranium" (nuclear) bomb that was used to attack the town at the Far East -- Hiroshima.

On the very day of that attack, the Mars (war, battle) was at 9° Gemini, at the very star that represents the East -- Aldebaran!



Peace

The Universe is really full of the road signs, and the following story also confirms that. I believe everybody is familiar with the appearance of the international peace logo. If we take a closer look, isn't it very similar with boomerang configuration? International peace logo was designed by British Gerald Holtom and it was used for the first time on April 4, 1958 in demonstrations against nuclear weapons. The key role of Egypt in the peace preservation in Middle East is confirmed by the fact that that on that same April 4, 1958 the secondary Moon of the United Kingdom was at 29° Aries, which is the very ascendant (general conditions) of the Egypt!




Yes, the Universe really takes care of everything, and the states (and through them individuals as well) that were called for on December 12, 2012 to be the channel in solving the disputes and problems -- will contribute both collective and individual peace… There is no doubt that Aldebaran/Antares axis is important for the Middle East, and possibly we are close to the solution that might result in peace…

Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg Originally Published: April 7th, 2014 I Author: Smiljana Gavrančić

Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg
Originally Published: April 7th, 2014 I Author: Smiljana Gavrančić

On September 28, 1968, as Uranus entered the sign of Libra, it also came into the sign of its exaltation -- Scorpio (transformation, sexuality…) through its dispositor Venus in the chart of young English actress Jane Birkin. It was very favorable for this young woman for her ascendant was in Aquarius. Uranus' cycle lasts for about 7 years, and since her birth this was the first moment that Uranus is in a favorable sign through disposition in her chart. Since that brought Uranus into conjunction with her Jupiter, the ruler of intercepted Pisces in her 1st house, but also the ruler of her 10th house (reputation), this opened the cycle of 7 years for her personal liberation and enabled her to realize herself as a different, free, to freely express her latent (intercepted) sexuality… Jupiter takes with it the Sun, the ruler of the 7th (relations, partner), the Mercury, the ruler of the 5th (love), South Node (the past), and maybe the most important here -- Black Moon (Lilith). In Jane's natal chart, there is quincunx (internal adjustment) of Jupiter and Uranus (…to the rebel within), so this conjunction gave her the opportunity to liberate herself and shine fully on the road of realization of her purpose and her Future Self (conjunction is at the cusp of her 9th house).



On the other hand, the other ascendant's ruler in Jane Birkin's chart, Saturn (with the cycle of about 2.5 years), was in Aries then, which brought it through dispositor -- Mars to conjunction with her ruler of the 7th -- relations, partner, the Sun (essential signifier for the man in female horoscope), which was also the sign of arrival of the older man into her life. In 1968 Jane Birkin met famous French artist Serge Gainsbourg, who was 18 years older than her, and thanks to him she became famous in France. By provocative, sexually explicit song and the movie "Je t'aime… moi non plus" they shock the public during 1969. Their love relationship lasted for 12 years, until 1980. Many regarded their relationship as immoral, an affair -- Venus-Jupiter conjunction at the cusp of her 9th house. In Jane's chart, Venus is also the ruler of the 8th (sexuality, but also the relationship after the first marriage -- Jane was already divorced at the age of 22, i.e. she had one marriage behind her).



The ruler of her ascendant, Uranus, is in the sign of Gemini, where the ruler of Serge's 7th (relations) , Mercury, is in its seat, while the ruler of his ascendant in Pisces, Jupiter, is in Aries, where the Sun is in exaltation, and the Sun rules 7th (relations) in Jane's chart. Judging by all this, they were good choice for each other. Naturally, we cannot neglect the strong mutual conjunction of Moons in Virgo, which surely implies closeness and tells that their souls are one entity… Also interesting is the axis of Lunar Nodes, which is identical in both charts and goes across 11° Gemini (North Node)/11° Sagittarius (South Node). Furthermore, his Mars (the ruler of his 8th - sexuality) at 25° Aquarius squares her ruler of the 8th - Venus at 17° Scorpio, while her Mars at 27° Sagittarius squares his Venus at 18° Pisces, which generally tells of strong passion in this relationship. Finally, in his chart, in Venus at 18° Pisces in square with Saturn at 19° Sagittarius we can see the depiction of Jane as 18 years younger partner (Venus is the ruler of his intercepted Libra in 7th -- relations).

Black Moon (Lilith)

If we take a look at the position of the Lilith, we see that Jane's mean Black Moon is at 24° Sagittarius, in strong conjunction with Serge's MC, while her true Black Moon is at 8° Sagittarius, very close to both his and hers South Node at 11° Sagittarius. On the other hand, Serge has his mean Black Moon at 13° Scorpio, in conjunction with her Venus and Jupiter at 17° Scorpio, while his true Black Moon is at 1° Scorpio 14', in conjunction with Sun-Moon midpoint of Jane (0° Scorpio 44'). Sun-Moon midpoint tells of man and woman unification and it is often activated through relationships, when a partner somehow touches this point, either with the planet, cusp of the house or like in this case -- with Black Moon (Lilith). There are many indications of a great passion here, which marked this relationship from the beginning.

Lilith primarily symbolizes female passion, rules female sexual urges, perversions, it depicts the lover, woman not accepted, women out of social currents. It also rules female emancipation. Lilith was the first Adam's wife, who was equal to him for they were both made of mud. She wanted to have the same rights as Adam, which was not granted and she was rejected. Then Eve was created from Adam's rib. The rib might be regarded as a half-moon because of its shape, so we may conclude that Eve is a reflection of Adam, as the Moon is the reflection of the Sun -- it reflects Sun's light. So, we may conclude that in signs where the Moon (Eve) is in fall and exile (Scorpio and Capricorn) Lilith is strong, for these are signs of seat and exaltation of Mars. In Jane Birkin's chart, the Moon (Eve) squares her Dark Moon (Lilith), which is depiction of disharmony between Eve and Lilith in this artist. But, since her Black Moon goes to Scorpio through its dispositor Jupiter, and her Moon from Virgo to Sagittarius through Mercury, we may conclude that here Lilith is stronger, because it is connected to the 8th zodiac sign (Scorpio).

Mean or true Black Moon (Lilith)

Black Moon is connected to Lunar Nodes, that represent physical points based on lunar orbit. Black Moon travels the Zodiac in 8 years and 10 months, which is the half of the Lunar Nodes' cycle. Like Lunar Nodes, Black Moon also has mean and true position. Their difference may be significant, up to 30° sometimes. Mean position is used most often, for it is the easiest to measure. True position can also be measured, but Lilith is moving pretty fast, up to 6° daily, and it may be retrograde as well. The true position may be in front of or behind the mean position, sometimes in the adjacent sign. Majority of astrologers work with mean Black Moon, while some prefer true one. That is why in this article we pay attention to both.

Je t'aime… moi non plus

Let us take a look at directions (for everything moves 1° for about 1 year in directions) during 1969, when their movie and song were made. Directive true Black Moon of Serge came to 11° Sagittarius, at his and hers South Node (the past), but directive Venus of Jane was also there (the ruler of her 8th -- sexuality), which all implies that these two people were starting something that has roots in the past of both of them, and that is connected to deep passions… Finally, all this is in exact sextile with Jane Birkin's ascendant, which is at 11th degree (degree analogous to the 11th sign, Aquarius) of Aquarius, so this was the activation of her true nature, indicated by both the sign of ascendant and its degree.

But, since Black Moon (both mean and true) in Serge's chart is in harmonious aspect (sextile) with the Moon at 8° Virgo, this offers the opportunity for Jane to improve her square I mentioned before through relationship with him, and to unify Eve and Lilith within with ease, the mother and the lover, which she managed to do -- in 1971 their daughter Charlotte was born.

Lilith insists to feel, to relax and surrender to something essential in ourselves, which is primordial and represents the passion of the soul. It represents the hallway that is tempting us to discover the deepest personal truths, cravings and wishes of the soul through it. Since we all have some models of behavior that prevent us from being fully present in the life, Lilith is the one who "presses" those buttons and tries to liberate us in order to experience the largest possible fulfillment…

My India and 29° Taurus Originally Published: December 24th, 2012 Author: Smiljana Gavrančić

My India and 29° Taurus
Originally Published: December 24th, 2012
Author: Smiljana Gavrančić

When Mercury (deals, travel) started direct on August 8, 2012, everything I have planned changed… The next day, on August 9, I found out that the girl I was supposed to travel with on Friday, August 10, cannot make it… Of course, we made the agreement in time of retrograde Mercury, and as astrologist I knew things might change, but I let it be the way the heaven wants it to be … We were supposed to travel by her car, so it automatically created the problem of transportation for me…


The seat 36 – 29° Capricorn

“What now?”, I wondered. The only thing I knew was that being nervous about it will not help at all, so I put all my energy and effort in trying to obtain the bus ticket. Something inside me was telling me that I should not postpone the trip, that the Universe wanted me to go by myself… I found out by phone that there were only 4 (Saturn) tickets remaining… I said to myself: “One must be mine!” So it was, I managed to get the bus ticket, and the very last one was sold to me! “Hm, another confirmation that I should travel”, and when I saw that the number of the seat was 36, I smiled and connected that to the number 9 (3+6), Neptune (“secret”), that is in symbolism of this number… On the other hand, Zodiac itself contains 36 decans, and this represented to me a very nice sign by the road…

Truthfully, I wanted this trip to bring me inspiration for my next article, for the next story that will contain a “secret”… It happened, but I did not expect that the trip to Croatia will give me the story of India, but since the best things happen when we have no expectations – I accepted it all without resistance…

When I made a horoscope for the moment when I bought the bus ticket, and saw that the axis 1/7 goes across 29° Capricorn/Cancer, exactly on my axis 3/9 (writing, the purpose), I was sure I was going there to get the story, and 29° implied that I will find what I was looking for – the “secret”… The sign of Capricorn can be primarily connected to India, which is in the symbolism of Saturn, but this trip brought the realization that for India, 29° (silence, meditation) of another sign is very important…



Dunja – 29° Taurus

On Friday, August 10, the day of my trip, there was a trine of Venus and Neptune, which is a picture of a girl going to the seaside. I got onto bus and found the seat 36… There was somebody waiting for me already… She greeted me with a smile and I felt like I knew her from some time before…

I liked her name, it is in the symbolism of the Venus (Dunja – quince), so I supposed she would bring something nice… We started to talk immediately, and the conversation went easy. I found out she was born in Rijeka, lives presently in Novi Sad (she studies there), and she was travelling home, to visit her nona (she calls her grandmother that) who lives on the island (29°) of Rab. Everything corresponded to the present situation in the skies – Venus (girl) trine Neptune (island, grandmother).

“My nona is special, she loves silence and peace, and she is very spiritual… She is very old, but her silence is what keeps her alive.” These words deeply touched me and reminded me of 29° Capricorn, the degree of the ascendant when I bought the ticket for Rijeka, the degree of my 3rd house (writing, travel) in my chart… I also foreboded some story about nona, grandmother, somebody who is old (Capricorn) and spiritual (29°), special… But I still did not know that India will appear here as something important… Soon, Dunja told me another information about herself that corresponded to the situation in the skies, the trine of Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces – which is the picture of a girl singing or playing music. Dunja Dorcic is one of the singers in the famous group “Putokazi” from Rijeka, and she is the seventh one. The very name of the band is symbolic (Putokazi – road signs). When you are astrologist, you definitely see road signs in everything

Dunja liked my name, Smiljana, very much, and said that the island of Rab is very rich in the plant immortelle (smilje – immortelle), that she regularly gathers it and so I must come to Rab because of it… She was amazed that nothing happens by chance only, and she confessed that she prayed to have someone sitting beside her that she could easily go along with. I smiled and told her that I am astrologist, and that really nothing happens only by chance. She was delighted to hear about my profession and she told me: “I am double Sagittarius!” I liked that detail very much, beside her name that I also liked, because I concluded that she as a double Sagittarius may bring me something important in the field of my purpose, knowledge (Sagittarius), as well as I may bring her some sort of transformation, change, as ascendant in Scorpio… At the end of the trip she told me: “You got me so interested in astrology that I wish to learn it. I wish to change!”

The chart of the moment I met Dunja tells that meeting her was really special, and that I would continue my trip in the rhythm of 29° (as I had begun it, by buying the ticket when the ascendant was at 29°). In that chart, the Moon is at 29° Taurus. In Taurus, the Venus is in its seat, and the Moon is exalted, so both female principles are strong here, which implied special, female energy that vibrates silently (29°)… This was another sign that my axis 3/9 was “called out”, and that I am about to easily get some knowledge, realization, purpose … since my 3/9 axis goes across 29° Capricorn/Cancer, as I have mentioned. I was happy



The very fact that both of us have the Moon (soul) in Cancer told that our meeting was full of closeness, warmth – Dunja’s Moon is at 20°, and mine at 15° Cancer, the orb of this conjunction being 5°, that implies the Light – Sun, the ruler of the 5th sign, Leo -- in our relationship, the love. At the very same spot resides the Moon (women) in the chart of India, the land on the East that I will gain knowledge about in the West. Very interesting, isn’t it?

But, one important fact that got my attention is the cusp of Dunja’s 7th house (grandmother in female horoscope). It is at 15° Gemini! On June 6 this year on this spot the Venus crossed the disk of the Sun, and I concluded that Dunja’s nona (grandmother) is somehow important in this year, and when I saw that the cusp of 3rd house (conversation) in the chart of my and Dunja’s meeting is also at 15° Gemini, on my Fortune (the most personal point in everybody’s horoscope), I was very sure that we met to talk about her nona! Since my Mercury is at 15° Aquarius, in 3 (writing, conversation, travel), and the dispositor of my Fortune – it all clicked… “Yes, I actually came to this trip to hear something about Dunja’s nona”, I said to myself, and waited patiently for what Dunja has to say about her, waited for my story

We arrived in Rijeka, and our meeting comes to an end, I stay in Rijeka and she goes to the island of Rab to see her nona… We hugged each other, and then she told me the most important thing: “I haven’t told you, my nona lived in India… I will tell you some other time…” I stood there amazed, positively of course

My Love –India & Osho

At that same time, on my trip, I read books of Osho, among others the book titled “My Love – India”. Osho talks about India in a special way, saying that India is not only geographical or historical fact. According to him it is something more, a metaphor, poetry, something invisible (29°), but substantial… It is the vibration of certain energetic fields that do not exist in any other country. Osho emphasizes that India is the country that continuously meditates for thousand and thousand years, that it is the story of non-violence. No other country in the world is so feminine as India. India was attacked, conquered, but it never defended itself, never have the wish to expand and become huge. It meditates, it is silent, passive, godly… and above all, feminine

I remembered the degree of the Moon when I met Dunja, 29° Taurus, having in mind that her grandmother (Moon - woman) who is spiritual (29°) and lived in India made the main impact on me. “This might be the important degree for India”, I said to myself. The sign of Taurus is female sign, it is passive enough, and 29° implies meditation, silence, while Mars (war) and Pluto (massive destruction) are in exile and fall in Taurus – India does not like confrontation, aggression… “In India, the holy (29°) animal is cow (Taurus)” – this also made sense. Furthermore, the greatest monument to love, one of the 7 world’s miracles, Taj Mahal, is situated in India. Since the fixed star Algol from Perseus constellation is situated close to 29° Taurus, this might be the picture of a woman dying at childbirth, as the case was with Mumtaz Mahal, the beloved wife of Shah Jahan, Mughal emperor of India, who built that mausoleum after her death as a symbol of love. Large number of people pray and meditate in front of Taj Mahal – is this represented by the Moon (people) at 29° (meditation, prayer) Taurus?!

But, it was too early for final conclusions, I looked for more road signs. I knew some new information about nona will reach me soon through Dunja, because the story is started and I have to continue it somehow

Nona – Sun at 29° Pisces

I returned from my trip, Dunja is still in Rab. Two (Moon) days ago I heard from her for the first time since our trip. I asked her right away about nona and her connection to India. I got useful information that helped me to continue my story…

Nona was born on March 20, 1928 in Rab. The Sun (and ascendant as well) were at 29° Pisces! I started slowly to put puzzle pieces together. I have 29° Taurus that I “suspect” to be important for India, and now I got 29° Pisces! I asked Dunja if nona’s life was somehow jeopardized somewhere far away, maybe in India, for it was my first idea for nona’s Sun (life, vitality) at 29° (the end) Pisces (faraway places, hospitals). Besides the Sun at such degree, I was certainly affected by her Pluto (danger, death, something deep), exactly at my Moon in 8 (research), at 15° Cancer. The woman I never saw in my life attracted me like magnet (Pluto), and I strongly and deeply (Pluto) felt her (Moon)… Her Moon, Mercury and Venus in Pisces (silence) speak about her spirituality that Dunja told me about, besides her Sun (life) at 29° Pisces…



“Yes, she faced the death in India. She went there because my grandfather got the job there, and they brought their two children with them. One of them is my father. She learnt English, they had servants, had a great time… but nona had to have a surgery there, and she was very afraid, and she told to the doctor: ‘Do not let me die, I have two small children!’ The doctor replied: ‘What is your death in comparison to the whole world!’ Instead of breaking her, his words only made her stronger, she raised above the mind, she realized that she should throw away her ego, and she is alive today and she is very silent… “, Dunja told me.

“To throw away the ego…”—I repeated to myself… Those words were very familiar to me, I read them somewhere recently, apparently… I remembered that Osho talked about it in the book I read, that one must learn he is not the most important in the world, that he should throw away his ego and forget about selfishness… Yes, 29° knows nothing about ego, selfishness… I was truly amazed. But I needed one more link to confirm that 29° Taurus is important for India

Massimo Savic – the song India –29° Cancer

What I am about to tell you is the proof that the Universe always takes care of everything… While I was reading the mail from Dunja about her grandmother and connection to India, I was listening to Massimo Savic and his song “India”, from the album “The Sun rises again” from December 2008. It urged me to take a look at Massimo’s chart.



Since the time of birth is unknown, I used his Sun chart. The first thing that caught my eye was the position of the Moon (woman) at 29° Cancer (28° Cancer 58’), where his secondary and directive Sun was in 2008, when this song was released. The fact that Massimo is really important here, in this story about nona and India, is confirmed by his date of birth – he was born on June 6, 1962! Sun is his chart is at 15° Gemini, the same position as the cusp of Dunja’s 7 (her grandmother, nona), where also was the cusp of 3 (talking, conversation, writing) in the chart for the moment I met Dunja, where also was directive Venus (wedding) of Mumtaz Mahal on March 27, 1612, when she married Shah Jahan four centuries ago. Since the first thing one thinks about when talking about India is Taj Mahal, one of the 7 world’s wonders, then 15° Gemini is certainly important here, because it represents the apex of lotus configuration, with 15° Leo on one side – the position of Venus in India’s chart, and 15° Aries on the other side – the position of India’s secondary Moon at the day of wedding, 4 centuries ago. Interestingly, Mumtaz Mahal waited 5 years to marry Shah Jahan. They met in 1607, he fell in love and proposed to her, but they had to wait (29°) for the wedding. The date of the wedding was determined by astrologers. In this waiting (29°), there is the symbolism of female, passive energy, India



Lotus constellation across 29°

Massimo helped me here to confirm my suspicion that 29° Taurus might be important for India, because it creates strong lotus (lotus is the very symbol of the East, India) constellation with 29° Pisces on one side, and 29° Cancer on the other side. Since we are dealing here with female signs – Taurus, Cancer, Pisces, all that imply passiveness, but also emotions and love (Venus is in its seat in Taurus, the Moon is exalted there, and the Moon is in its seat in Cancer, Jupiter exalted there, Pisces are the seat of Jupiter and Neptune, and exaltation of Venus), then it is certain that India is the country that is silent (29°), female (Taurus, Cancer, Pisces), passive, waiting… and certainly special (lotus constellation) and full of love…

India and New Age

Since 0° (the beginning) Gemini comes after 29° Taurus, and India’s ascendant is exactly there (0° Gemini 54’), and since Regulus entered Virgo from ascendant at 1° Gemini, it is to be expected that the new age that begun with Regulus in Virgo will, in the next 2160 years, bring new age to India as well, especially to women in India, and help them become more awaken and somehow more focused mentally (Gemini) …



In the moment when the Mind is erased – and the method to achieve it is meditation (29°) – we are left with only a body that is absolutely beautiful, and the silent brain without noise. In the moment when the brain is liberated from the Mind, the innocence of the brain becomes aware of the new space that we call soul. Yes, India is female, silent and full of love… But in the time to come – it will change, certainly

White House, 22° Gemini and Donald Trump Published: September 7th, 2015 I Author: Smiljana Gavrančić

White House, 22° Gemini and Donald Trump
Published: September 7th, 2015 I Author: Smiljana Gavrančić

Presidential Elections in America in 2016

The race for Presidency has already started, although there is about a year before the elections… There are still speculations about candidates from two leading parties, democratic and republican… The recent appearance of Donald Trump in the race for republican candidature got America “on its feet”. Jeb Bush, whose father and brother had held the position of the first man in this country, is also mentioned as a republican candidate. The new resident of the White House will be the one who wins the majority on November 8, 2016, when the elections are scheduled to be held, but also the one who has 22° Gemini somehow activated!

Important “figures” for the White House throughout the history of United States

I started my research by looking at the date when the cornerstone for the White House was placed, October 13, 1792. The whole idea was that of the first President, George Washington. The first residence was finished in 1800, and the first President who lived in the White House was not the one with the idea of building it, but John Adams (the second President of America).

Let us now take a look at secondary progressions of George Washington for the moment when the residence was finished (November 1, 1800), since his horoscope can be still used today, since he was “the seed” as the first President of America! The secondary Venus, the ruler of Washington’s ascendant, is at 21° Gemini 35’, very close to 22° Gemini and in a strong conjunction with Mars (21° Gemini 18’) from USA horoscope! Mars rules the ascendant in USA horoscope (I use 8° Scorpio as ascendant, because it fits perfectly into symbolism that this country was created after independence war – 8° has the symbolism of war, as well as the very sign of Scorpio, while Uranus – independence, freedom, is exalted in Scorpio as well), and it represents the Washington DC, the capital of USA.



Also, in the moment when John Adams became the second President of United States (the first one who lived in the White House), on March 4, 1797 – his solar arc Moon was at 22° Gemini 25’, very close to his MC at 23° Gemini 00’!



Theodore Roosevelt, the Republican, became the President on September 14, 1901. The residence got its name “White House” in 1901, after the idea of this man, because of its white façade. In the moment when he became the first man of the country, secondary IC-MC axis in USA horoscope was across 22° Gemini 39’/22° Sagittarius 39’!



Finally, White House got its present appearance in 1934, when Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the so-called “Oval Office”, the official office of the President, into the west wing. Franklin became USA President on March 4, 1933, and in his natal chart he has MC at 22° Gemini 08’!


Donald Trump in USA horoscope

Jupiter-Uranus midpoint in USA chart is also at 22° Gemini 25’. Uranus (gambling, casino) is in the 8th house (money) and he rules the 4th house (opposition candidate), while Jupiter rules 2nd house (financial system) and is the essential significator for the serious amount of money. In Uranus at 8° Gemini in 8th house we have the picture of Donald Trump, the Republican candidate, businessman who built his empire in casinos and real estate… Jupiter/Uranus combination always speaks of financial risks…, but in this case it might be the picture of over-arming, overuse of some sort of modern weapons in some armed conflict. It is interesting that Donald Trump has a prenatal, solar eclipse at 8° Gemini 49’, at the Uranus of USA, at the planet that represents him in the chart of USA!



Now, let us take a look at his horoscope. We can see that he has the Sun at 22° Gemini in conjunction with the North Node, i.e. he was born on the day of lunar eclipse that was at 23° Sagittarius 05’. His ascendant is at 29° Leo 58’, where the star Regulus was at that time (now it is at 0° Virgo), which certainly may bring him success. Solar Arc Sun (29° Leo 07’) is even now crossing his ascendant, and it will remain there in the moment of elections, on November 8, 2016 (at 0° Virgo 15’). Transit Saturn at 29° Scorpio is now, while I write this article (September 2015) in square with his ascendant, but since his natal Saturn from Cancer, through dispositor – the Moon at 21° Sagittarius, makes a trine with ascendant, then this is the time for him, he has the support of Saturn. Jupiter also transits his 1st house (him), which may be the picture of “overdoing”, expansions, affairs, which is not unknown to Trump… With Jupiter it is not always safe, for he may bring disappointment because of the overdoing. But if the natal Jupiter is strong, then the transit also offers the support. His Jupiter is in the 2nd house, together with Chiron (wound), so this is also the picture of the financial losses he had. But, this man is saved because his Jupiter goes to the sign of Cancer through dispositor Venus, the sign of its exaltation, which additionally strengthens him, especially in risky situations (Venus in Cancer, as dispositor of Jupiter in Libra, in 11th house, the house of risk).



The following solar eclipse at 20° Virgo 10’ on September 13, 2015 will activate Donald’s postnatal (lunar) eclipse and bring him the grand “opening”. This eclipse will also activate his natal Node axis, and it will be very important moment for him!

Also, immediately before the elections, on September 1, 2016 there will be solar eclipse at 9° Virgo 21’, which will activate Uranus (Donald Trump) from 8° Gemini 55’ in the USA chart by the square, which emphasizes some possible military activities of America somewhere in the east (Aldebaran – the “Watcher of the East”).

If we take a look now at the horoscope of the Republican Party, we find that on the day of elections Solar Arc axis IC-MC goes across 22° Gemini 50’/22° Sagittarius 50’, which gives this party huge chances of winning the elections and having its candidate as the first man of the country! I want to add that the Solar Arc Sun of the Republican Party will be at 23° Gemini 50’, in conjunction with postnatal, lunar eclipse of Donald Trump, which puts the great accent on this man inside the Republican Party!



The Bush Family


I have mentioned Jeb Bush, the son of George H. W. Bush and the brother of George Walker Bush. It is interesting that Jeb Bush has his MC at 22° Gemini, which certainly brings him somehow into the race for candidacy for the coming elections, and especially interesting is the position of the tertiary Sun (it moves 1° in one month) on the day of elections (November 8, 2016) exactly at 22° Gemini! But I would say that Trump is still in stronger position because his progressive Sun is transiting his ascendant, and also because of the fact that the progressive Sun of the Republican Party will be at his prenatal lunar eclipse. On the other hand, progressive Sun of Jeb Bush will be around 26° Aries, transiting his 8th house, which is not as strong as Donald’s one at the ascendant.



Also, George Bush has his Sun at 21° Gemini, very close to 22° Gemini, which brought him in contact with the White House.

November 8, 2016

Let us take a look at the chart for the moment of the poll sites opening. The 10th house always represents the ruling candidate – Democrats, while the 4th house in this case represents the Republican candidate.







In this chart, with MC (Democrats) at 13°  Leo 34’, the Sun rules this point. Sun transits Scorpio, and Mars (the Sun’s dispositor) transits at 29°  Capricorn – the last or anaretic degree, an indicator of the end!

Let us see the Republicans now. The 4th house represents them. This house has Aquarius on the cusp. Saturn is therefore primary ruler which is in Sagittarius, and through the dispositor, Jupiter in Libra, it goes into the sign of its exaltation. All this tell that really Republicans have much more chance at the coming elections in 2016.



22° Gemini – Orion constellation

In the end if we take a look at fixed stars, we shall see that around 22° Gemini (where the Sun, the ruler of the ascendant of Donald Trump) are the stars from Orion constellation, that is being connected to USA. Here we have the picture of very big, tall man, with broad shoulders, and emphasized hair (remember the mythological Orion), with big feet and specific gait, and who has problems and affairs with women. Isn’t this the indication of Donald Trump?! If we go back to that part of the article where I said that in the horoscope of America Donald is represented as Uranus at 8° Gemini in 8th house, than I add that all that is in close conjunction with one of the four royal stars Aldebaran (“The Watcher of the East”), so all this might indicate that if Trump becomes the next President of America, he may focus his politics on some armed conflicts in the East.

Since there is a wide trine of Uranus (Donald Trump) and Saturn in Libra in USA horoscope, transit Saturn from Sagittarius that will oppose Uranus (Donald Trump) at the beginning of 2016 might bring this man the candidacy within the Republican Party, and presidential race. The aspect of opposition is now initiating things, since there is a good aspect in natal chart.


Whatever happens, it seems that the new President of America will come from the Republican Party, and that Donald Trump, for now, as the big surprise, should not be neglected… It remains to be seen if anyone else from the Republican Party will come forward and have accented 22° Gemini, for how it seems, this degree is the “ticket” for the White House. 



What about Hillary?

 As we don’t have  Hillary’s correct birth date, I used her husband Bill Clinton’s chart, on  the basis that there would be a powerful indication in his horoscope if his wife was destined to be President. I found his Solar Arc Moon at 29° Cancer (the end) opposited by transit Mars at 29° Capricorn (for election day 8th November, 2016). Not a happy chart for a Hillary victory.

Worth nothing as an aside, when Bill Clinton was first elected President in November 1992, his tertiary Venus (ruler of his Libra rising) was at 22° Gemini (the degree I associate with presidential entry into the White House). 

Another example: Jacqueline Kennedy had natal Venus (ruler of her 7th house – husband) at 21° Gemini 46’ (almost 22° Gemini). During November 1960 presidential election, her secondary Moon was crossing over 21° - 22° Gemini!


Florida and Ohio – swing states

It’s said, „If he/she gets Florida and Ohio, he/she wins“. I found that Florida’s secondary progressed Sun during  the US elections is at 29° Leo, and Trump had Ascendant at 29° Leo. Also, that Ohio’s progressed MC (on 8th November, 2016) is at 29° Leo. It’s well known that Florida and Ohio are the most important swing states!






 November 2020 sees the next presidential election. Then, the secondary Moon of the USA will be at 29° Capricorn, preparing to ingress Aquarius. Perheps this hints at a woman who will bring something new to the whole world! Remember, on 21 December 2020, there will be the great Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0° Aquarius!
