revolution Iran: The Path to the Revolution (Part I of the Iran Series)

With all the talk about a potential war on Iran, it is useful to look at historical patterns in Iran that foretold upheaval or war in that country.Then, we can apply what we learned from these astrological omens for Iran to the astrological conditions today.This is the most honest and most painful way to do mundane astrology, and it involves lots of charts.Lots and lots of charts!The sheer number of horoscopes involved is the reason this series will run in installments.

Iran Dynasty – Reza Khan Coronation in 1926

Coronation horoscopes tend to work pretty well to symbolize the beginning of a royal dynasty, sometimes even the beginning of the country as a whole.One example is the frequently-used coronation of William the Conqueror in England, which is often taken for the beginning of the British Empire.The Book of World Horoscopes states that Reza Khan, the commander who deposed the existing Shah in a coup d’état, was crowned on April 25, 1926, at 4:10 p.m. local time.

Reza Khan Coronation Horoscope

Apart from the angles of the coronation horoscope, there are two other sensitive points: the Moon in Libra, which rules the 10th house of the King, and Venus itself, ruling the first house of the people and the country as a whole.The warlike theme of this dynasty is indicated by the ruler of the preceding lunation at 21 Aries, Mars.Mars in the coronation horoscope is partile square Saturn, in perfect mutual reception by sign.Mars rules the seventh house and is placed in the fifth, indicating harm to the dynasty by the open enemies, who will also be the nation’s children, or young people.

Underscoring this theme is the fact that we have Mercury, the natural ruler of young people (as students, as ruler of the ninth house), placed right in the seventh house of the dynasty’s opponents. However, when we have the two malefics afflicting each other as we see here, not only will young people be the enemy of the dynasty, but they too will come to harm.

1961 Great Conjunction: First Hints of the Revolution

An astrologer examining the once-every-20-years Great Conjunction chart set for Tehran in 1961 would feel a little worried.The conjunction Mars is in Cancer, the sign of its fall, and conjunct the midheaven — the house of the King — in the coronation horoscope.The King falling by violence is the most obvious interpretation of this combination.This is the same Mars that foretold conflict and bloodshed in the pre-coronation lunation horoscope.Mars afflicts the Moon by a square aspect.The Grand Conjunction Moon is conjunct Venus in Aries.Venus is the planet of Islam, here in detriment, in the Martial sign of Aries, at the very lowest point of the horoscope.The King is definitely in trouble, and will be brought down through the Islamic religion.

Grand Conjunction 1961, Tehran, Iran. 00:02 GMT.

The young people who would become enemies of the status quo do not fare well in the Grand Conjunction chart, either.Mercury is in the sign of its detriment and fall, Pisces, and is partile conjunct the malefic South node, right on the weak sixth house cusp of the coronation horoscope.

The Midheaven of the Grand Conjunction is conjunct the benefic fixed star Spica, perhaps indicating that the King will escape the worst.However, with the extreme afflictions from Mars, this is rather cold comfort.
