(CNN) -- Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn will soon line up for a cosmic dance that should delight observers all over the world who look up into the skies before dawn.
The aesthetically intriguing celestial conjunction will include special appearances by the waning crescent moon.
The mid-July alignment features two sets of planets, Mercury and Jupiter, and Venus and Saturn, which will be in conjunction within one week of each other.
In mid-July of 1990, there was a significant six-planet alignment involving the new moon (solar eclipse) and an opposition of Jupiter and Saturn. Just as this celestial event occurred, Iraq threatened, massed troops against and then invaded Kuwait. (The invasion of Kuwait coincided with a lunar eclipse squared by Mars and Pluto that financial astrologer Arch Crawford warned would mark an explosive event weeks ahead of time - see the list below.)
Now this mid-July we are seeing a similar six-planet alignment just before the new moon. If, as I believe, Russia and the Arab powers are shaping history according to astrology, then grave danger may lie ahead, particularly for Israel and possibly America as well.
I can see where the hostile, demonic national powers aligned against us are shaping history according to the stars (like Hitler did) toward a catastrophic war that may spell an end to Western civilization as we know it. That war may come in the vicinity of the upcoming planetary alignment, or at least the war may be initiated in some facet around that time. If not now, however, it will come later as long as nobody ever recognizes how these evil forces are operating in the world today.
1. *April 24th, 1986: Total eclipse of the Moon conjunct Pluto.
The following evening the Chernobyl disaster occurred in the Ukraine.
Notably this configuration involved the planet Pluto which is supposed to represent explosive events and nuclear technology ("Pluto" is the root of the world "pluto"nium).
The fact that the event was timed according to the stars is
indicative of how Chernobyl might
not have been an accident,
but rather a sick experiment to garner knowledge for fighting a future
nuclear war. Indeed, it is appropriate that this is the first significant
historical event following Mikhail Gorbachev's rise to power in Moscow in
March 1985. The "Chernobyl
Experiment" reveals that a global nuclear war is the ultimate objective
of a multi-year plan, timed according to astrology, that began to be implemented
by the Central Party of the Soviet Union under Gorbachev's leadership and
continues to unfold to this day.
2. *October 3 & 17, 1986: Solar/Lunar eclipse pair.
Fire breaks out aboard the Soviet nuclear submarine K-219 in the Atlantic. Heroic efforts by crew members prevent a reactor meltdown that could have contaminated the East coast of the U.S. and Canada. The submarine sinks three days later.
Reagan-Gorbachev Summit in Reykjavik, Iceland collapses. The summit meeting between President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev collapsed after the two leaders had tentatively agreed to sweeping reductions in nuclear arsenals but deadlocked on the crucial issue of restricting the U.S. space-based missile defense program widely known as "Star Wars".
3. *June 28th, 1988: 5-planet alignment squared by Mars. Very rare exact alignment of Saturn, Uranus and the Moon is squared by Mars and opposed by Mercury and Venus.
Second Party Conference. New Congress of Peoples' Deputies with elected seats announced. Gorbachev becomes president.
4. *November 9th, 1989: Very rare conjunction of Saturn & Neptune (three times a century). Also, conjunction of Venus & Uranus and exact alignment of Pluto, Mercury and the Sun.
Berlin Wall comes down.
5. *July 22nd, 1990: Total solar eclipse conjunct Jupiter & opposed by Saturn.
Marked when Iraq began massing forces on the Kuwaiti border just prior to the 1990 invasion.
6. *August 2nd thru 7th, 1990: Lunar eclipse squares Mars and Pluto.
In the Market Watch section of the July 16th, 1990 issue of 'Barron's', there is an excerpt from the newsletter of financial astrologer Arch Crawford. It reads in part:
"...Aug. 6 (Lunar Eclipse squares Mars + Pluto). Expect some major catastrophe on that last one, Aug. 2-7, as something explodes in a big way... Astronomically similar to the Chernobyl disaster..."
On August 2nd, Iraq invaded Kuwait precipitating the Persian Gulf crisis. As explained in my paper, The Persian Gulf Deception, Iraq most likely invaded Kuwait and precipitated the ongoing crisis in the Gulf at Moscow's behest. The general intent has been to establish Iraq as a symbolic Arab victim of U.S. imperialism in order to create a pretext for Saddam to eventually lash out at world 'Zionism' by striking Israel with chemical SCUD missiles which, in turn, will trigger a final, all-out East/West conflict.
7. *January 15th, 1991: Solar eclipse (at 11:59 pm on 1/15/91) with 6-planet alignment in Capricorn (note: in astrology the Sun and Moon are considered planets).
January 15th, 1991 was the U.N. deadline for Iraq to pull-out of Kuwait before the allied attack a day later- the beginning of the Gulf War.
According to an ancient Babylonian prophecy, "when all the planets meet in Capricorn the world will be destroyed by fire". In January of 1991, there was a six-planet alignment in Capricorn, and Venus, Jupiter and Pluto were heavily aspected in Capricorn and in tension with each other. Thus, from the perspective of someone in Iraq and the site of ancient Babylon, their "world was destroyed by fire" as forecast in this astrological prophecy (see Moira Timms' 'Beyond Prophecies and Predictions', pp.206 & 209).
It was during the Gulf War that I experienced a
prophetic vision indicating that eventually Iraq would strike Israel with
weapons of mass destruction and this, in turn, would lead to a global
nuclear war. Following this vision I carefully reexamined the events in
the Gulf in 1990 and 1991 and realized things were not what they seemed. I
discovered that Iraq's
invasion of Kuwait and the subsequent Gulf War and ongoing struggle between
Iraq and the U.S. were instigated by Saddam Hussein at the behest of Moscow
in order to set the stage for a nuclear third world war.
8. *June 26th, 1991: Lunar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair. Also, Pluto was squared (90-degree angle) by an alignment of Venus, Mars and Jupiter.
Marked the beginning of the civil war in Yugoslavia.
Western military intervention in the former Yugoslavia was provoked
again at the behest of Moscow for strategic purposes. In particularly, NATO
involvement in the Balkans and military action against the Serbs stoked nationalist
fervor in Russia. This nationalist backlash serves the interests of those
elements in Moscow planning to fight an all-out war against the U.S. and Western
9. *August 19th, 1991: Alignment of Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter.
A failed coup attempt by communist hardliners is staged in Moscow which supposedly brings an end to the Communist Party and Soviet Union.
10. *December 21st, 1991: Lunar eclipse on the winter solstice.
The Soviet flag comes down and the Russian flag is raised over the Kremlin as the Soviet Union is officially disbanded. Eleven of the twelve former republics of the Soviet Union meet in Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan and establish the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), thereby abolishing the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
A few days after this, on Christmas day (?!), Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev resigned.
11. *June 30th, 1992: Solar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair. This eclipse was aligned with Venus, Uranus and Neptune and sextiled (60-degree angle) Mars and Jupiter.
First U.N. forces arrive in Sarajevo as Western military intervention in the former-Yugoslavia begins.
12. *February 28, 1993: Rare conjunction of Neptune & Uranus T-squared by Venus & Jupiter. Saturn squares Pluto. (Neptune/Uranus conjunctions occur roughly every 200 years. In 1993, exact conjunctions occurred in February, August, and October; three times due to retrograde planetary motion).
Terrorists bomb the World Trade Center.
As revealed by Laurie Mylroie in her book, "THE WAR AGAINST AMERICA - Saddam Hussein and the World Trade Center Attacks: A Study of Revenge", this first attempt by terrorists to take down the Twin Towers was a "false flag" operation organized by Iraqi intelligence but wrongly attributed to a loosely knit network of Islamic extremists. The mastermind of the operation, Ramzi Yousef, used the false identity of a Kuwaiti named Abdul Basit. Abdul and his family disappeared during Iraq's occupation of Kuwait. Only Iraqi intelligence could have accessed and altered the documentation of Abdul Basit used by Ramzi Yousef to escape following the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
The 1993 World Trade Center bombing was the beginning of increasingly brazen terrorist attacks against U.S. interests including the bombing of a US training mission for Saudi troops in Riyadh in 1995, the 1996 truck bombing of the al-Khobar Towers military base, the 1998 African embassy bombings, the attack on the U.S.S. Cole in 2000 and most recently the terrorist attacks on 9/11 of 2001 that resulted in the total destruction of the World Trade Center towers as well as serious damage to the Pentagon. These terrorist attacks have been attributed to Osama bin Laden and the al Qaeda ('The Base') terrorist network. However, there is reason to believe that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda are a front for terrorist attacks done at the behest of Iraq and Russia. While the link to Iraq can be established, that Baghdad operates in collusion with Moscow is well hidden. Nevertheless, this is the implication of my "Persian Gulf Deception" hypothesis.
Why would Moscow make use of Iraq and al Qaeda to engage in terrorism against U.S. interests? The answer has to do with the strategic potential of using rogue states and loose-knit terrorist networks to deliver weapons of mass destruction (like weaponized Anthrax) rather than delivering them directly with Russian missiles and planes since the latter would result in massive, direct Western retaliation.
In military parlance, the ability of a small power to debilitate and/or incapacitate a large power using unconventional terrorist means is referred to as "asymmetric warfare". The Soviets long ago realized the value of asymmetric warfare and entered it into their Marxist-Leninist military doctrine in the belief that conventional warfare may be unnecessary and asymmetric techniques alone could potentially be used to defeat the capitalist states worldwide. In this context, Moscow must have determined that they could use puppet states and terrorist networks seemingly not associated with Russia to unleash devastating asymmetric attacks against the Western powers using weapons of mass destruction. Thus, Saddam Hussein's Iraq has been delinked from Russia and converted into a rogue terrorist state that, in cooperation with Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda terrorist network, is positioning to deliver debilitating terrorist strikes directly against the U.S. and Western allies using chemical, biological and radiological weaponry. Moscow, however, seems to be blame-free in the unfolding history.
12. *October 4th, 1993: Rare conjunction of Neptune & Uranus repeats. Saturn T-squares Moon and Pluto..
Political chaos erupts in Moscow following Russian President Boris Yeltsin's disbanding of the former-Soviet parliament.
13. *December 13th, 1993: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Sagitarrius. Saturn square Pluto.
Communists and Nationalists win the elections for a new Russian parliament. Of particular surprise is the success of the "Liberal Democratic Party" (?!) led by Hitler-like nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
14. *January 12th, 1994: Rare seven-planet alignment in Capricorn (five planets and the sun and moon). Tightest alignment of seven planets in 300 years.
U.S./Russia summit at which the superpowers sign an agreement to no longer target each other with nuclear weapons.
Alignment also coincides with increased Serb shelling of Sarajevo and a NATO summit meeting at which the Western allies agree to use force in the former-Yugoslavia. Within a month the first NATO ultimatum was issued for the withdrawal of Serb heavy weaponry from around a Sarajevan "safe-zone".
15. *November 18th, 1994: Lunar eclipse of solar/lunar eclipse pair. Eclipse is aligned with Pluto and Jupiter, squares (90- degree angle) Mars and trines (120-degree angle) Uranus and Neptune.
Croatian Serb warplanes bomb the U.N.-protected Bihac enclave in violation of a NATO-enforced "no-fly zone". NATO responds by bombing Serb positions. This is the first major use of military force against the Serbs by NATO in the Balkan conflict and the first offensive military action ever taken by NATO in the 45-year history of the Alliance.
16. *December 11th, 1994: Mars squares conjunction of Pluto & Jupiter.
Russia invades the breakaway republic of Chechnya.
17. *April 29th, 1995: Solar eclipse of lunar/solar eclipse pair. Eclipse squares Neptune and Uranus.
Croatian Serb warplanes bomb the U.N.-protected Bihac enclave in Bosnia in violation of a NATO enforced "no-fly zone" once again. The Balkan war heats-up as a five-month cease-fire comes to an end.
(Notably, this was the first eclipse pair subsquent to the pair in November of 1994 which marked the only other time Croatian Serb warplanes bombed Bihac- both before and since; blatant evidence that Serb military action is timed according to the stars.)
18. *June 14th, 1995: Mars T-squares alignment of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter (w/Jupiter at opposition).
Similar to configuration on December 11th, 1994 when Russia invaded Chechnya. This time, a large group of Chechen rebels attack a town in southern Russia and take several hundred patients hostage at a hospital. The incident ends violently with hundreds of Russians reportedly killed.
19. *July 12th, 1995: Alignment of Sun, Moon, Neptune and Uranus trines (120-degree angle) Mars and sextiles (60-degree angle) Saturn and Pluto.
Russian President Boris Yeltsin reportedly suffers a heart attack while Bosnian Serb forces overrun the U.N.-protected enclave of Srebrenica.
20. *October 24th, 1995: Mars and Pluto conjunct total solar eclipse.
Russian President Boris Yetsin reportedly suffers a second heart attack.
21. *November 22nd, 1995: 7-planet alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Sagitarrius.
Serbs do a total about-face and reach a peace agreement with Bosnian and Croatian representatives at peace talks in Dayton, Ohio. Some 60,000 NATO troops start heading into the former- Yugoslavia to take over the peace-keeping mission from the United Nations.
22. *December 21st/22nd, 1995: Clustering of all planets in or near Capricorn around the time of the winter solstice.
Communists and nationalist win Russian parliamentary elections.
23. *January 15th, 1996: Moon squares alignment of Earth, Sun, Mercury, Mars and Uranus.
Russian forces storm Chechen rebels holding hostages in southern Russia.
24. *February 26th, 1996: Sun conjunct Mars T-squares Pluto and the moon, which are in opposition (180 degrees apart).
Configuration is similar to the one that marked when Iraq invaded Kuwait in August of 1990. Notably, February 26th is also the fifth anniversary of Kuwait's liberation from Iraqi occupation and the end of the Gulf War.
Wave of terrorist bombings against Israel occur starting February 25th leading to large-scale "Grapes of Wrath" Israeli military action in Lebanon- the largest such Israeli operation in Lebanon since Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon.
25. *April 3rd, 1996: Total lunar eclipse conjunct Mars and squared by Jupiter.
North Korea pulls out of the Korean War Armistice and then carries out a series of provocative armed incursions in the Demilitarized Zone separating the two Koreas.
26. *June 16th, 1996: 6-planet alignment of Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Pluto near summer solstice.
Russian presidential elections take place with a virtual tie between the Communist candidate and Boris Yeltsin. To insure victory in the run-off election, Yeltsin appoints the third place candidate- the hardline, former Russian general, Alexander Lebed- to be his new Security Chief.
27. *June 30th, 1996: A full "bluemoon" is opposed by Jupiter, the planet of leaders, and squared by Saturn, the planet of fate.
The "fate" of the Russian "leader", Boris Yeltsin, becomes a concern as the Russian president disappears from public view, supposedly due to failing health, going into the run-off Russian presidential election he reportedly wins on July 3rd. Later it is revealed that Yeltsin supposedly suffered a major heart attack around this time.
28. *September 26th, 1996: Total lunar eclipse conjunct Saturn, the planet of fate as well as the planet of the Jewish people, and squared by Jupiter, the planet of leaders.
The fate of Russian leader Boris Yeltsin is placed in jeapordy as he undergoes heart bypass surgery.
Meanwhile, the fate of the Jewish people is placed in jeapordy as the worst bloodshed in the Occupied Territories since Israel overran them in 1967 erupts.
29. *February 26, 1998: Total solar eclipse conjunct Jupiter and Mercury and squared by Pluto.
Serb forces began violent crackdown against Albanian rebels in Kosovo, called the Kosovo Liberation Army, seeking independence for the 90% Albanian population in the Yugoslavian province. The Serb crackdown is internationally condemned since a civil war in Kosovo could spill-over into Albania and Macedonia and thereby draw in other major powers like Greece and Turkey and set-off a major regional war.
30. *April 23rd, 1998: Conjunction of Venus, Jupiter and the Moon.
Serbia holds referendum and the population votes against international mediation and/or intervention in Kosovo.
Major border conflict erupts with Albania leaving dozens dead from the Kosovo Liberation Army.
31. *June 4th, 1998: Conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposed by Pluto.
Months prior to this astrological configuration, the AstroEcon web site (http://www.astroecon.com) presented the following forecast for this astrological configuration:
"June 4, 1998: Mercury Mars conjunct and opposed to Pluto. Nasty, panic prone energy. War News."
Around this date, Serb forces escalate their offensive against the Kosovo Liberation Army including air-attacks and indiscriminate shelling of Albanian villages. Dozens of innocent Albanians are killed and entire villages are razed causing thousands of Albanian refugees to flee Kosovo for Albania and Macedonia. Serbia is internationally condemned and accused of engaging in ethnic cleansing like occurred in Bosnia during prior years.
In response to the new Serbian military aggression in Kosovo, NATO ministers meet and order initmidating air-exercises in Albania and Macedonia as well as accelerated contigency planning for NATO military intervention in Kosovo in order to contain the escalating violence.
32. *August 7th, 1998: Lunar eclipse squared by Saturn and aligned with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune & Uranus.
Simultaneous terrorist bombings destroy U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killing 12 U.S. citizens and more than 200 Kenyans and Tanzanians and wounded thousands more. The bombings were masterminded by Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden, possibly at the behest of Saddam Hussein. Numerous Iraqis were arrested in connection with the bombings and the terrorist attacks occurred on the anniversary of when economic sanctions were imposed against Iraq in 1990.
The day after the bombings, and within hours after the lunar eclipse, Iraq announced that it would no longer cooperate with U.N. inspectors.
33. *August 21st, 1998: Solar eclipse.
Going into the eclipse, the U.S. launches retaliatory missile attacks against terrorist targets linked to Osama bin Laden in Sudan and Afghanistan.
34. *January 31st, 1999: Lunar eclipse opposed by Uranus, Neptune & Mercury.
Following a Serb massacre of dozens of Kosovo Albanians (timed with the prior new moon squared by Mars and Saturn), NATO delivers Kosovo peace talk ultimatum seeking to force the Serbia and Kosovo's Albanian rebels to forge a peace agreement in a few weeks or face NATO air-strikes which are authorized at this time.
35. *February 16th, 1999: Solar eclipse.
Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic rejects a peace proposal presented to him by the West that requires allowing NATO troops in Kosovo. Belgrade's decision means NATO will supposedly have to bomb the Serbs into submission.
36. *February 23rd, 1999: Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus.
Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic rejects a peace proposal presented to him by the West that requires allowing NATO troops in Kosovo. Belgrade's decision means NATO will supposedly have to bomb the Serbs into submission.
11th-17th, 1999: Lunar Eclipse and Grand Cross Alignment of the planets.
Vladimir Putin becomes Prime Minister of Russia.
5th, 2002: Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus.
Vladimir Putin inaugurated as President of Russia.
39. *September 11th, 2001: Sun T-squares newly arrived opposition of Saturn and Pluto. Saturn conjunct the moon on September 11th and squared by the Sun (quarter moon).
