BMA - 2017

BMA - Presentation

Published online as of August 31, 2013, the Bulletin of Mundane Astrology (BMA) first ran quarterly ; as from 31 December 2015, its publication will be annual. In fact, the BMA consists of two distinct elements : on the one hand, raw astrological data, without comment ; on the other hand, articles of commentaries on international news, at the interface between global astrology and geopolitics. These articles have no specific periodicity, they are put online throughout the year as they are written.

The Pivot of Powers


This article deals with an exceptional astrological configuration that took place on Tuesday, June 27th, 2017 : the Sun-Hades conjunction connected to two significant axes of the period 2017-2022 (Saturn/Pluto and Uranus/Neptune) transiting on a zone of the Zodiac (6°14 Cancer), which can be considered as the "pivot of powers" because of the presence in this zone of factors of prime importance in the charts of the USA (Jupiter), China (Uranus ) and Russia (Pluto) among others. The article puts in report the chart of this day with those of November 13th, 2017 (Venus-Jupiter conjunction on the Ascendant of the USA) and March 11th, 2018 (presidential election in Russia).

[([*BMA 2017-6 – The Eclipse of August 21, 2017 - August 10, 2017*])]

The Eclipse of August 21, 2017


This article consists of a detailed study of the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 (Saros 145), under a double diachronic and synchronic aspect. This eclipse is first presented in the framework of the Saros cycle 145, which begins in 1639 and then within the framework of the four eclipses of the Meton cycle between 1963 and 2036.

The synchronic study begins with the eclipse in itself, for the world, then comes from locations for Washington, Moscow and Beijing as well as for Brussels (European Union) and for Jerusalem (the broader Middle East, including as well Syria, Iran and Iraq as Turkey and Egypt).

Another synchronic approach is to locate the countries and personalities concerned by the zodiacal zones linked to the focus of the eclipse (28°53 Lion), that is to say the zones of the Numerical Index 14-59-37-82. Five groups are thus highlighted :

1° Various countries in the Middle East (Iraq, Israel, Qatar, Syria, Yemen) as well as the new Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salmane and the Emir of Qatar Al-Thani.

2° USA and Donald Trump.

3° Russian Federation and Vladimir Putin.

4° The three highest figures of the reigning family of the United Kingdom (Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles of Wales, Prince William of Cambridge).

5° The Fifth Republic and Emmanuel Macron.

[([*BMA 2017-8 – The Strategies of the Iron Age*])]

The Strategies of Iron Age


This article deals with the current events of the summer and autumn of 2017, marked by the uncertainties aroused throughout the world by the heightened destabilization of the American Empire and the prospect of its possible collapse.

The first part deals with the USA where President Donald Trump, dispossessed by Congress of its foreign policy prerogatives, appears to be the hostage of a military junta and threatened with dismissal by the neo-conservative clan. New sanctions against Russia are for a long time burying any prospect of cooperation between the USA and Russia and are likely to push Western Europe away from its atlanticist commitment because its energy policy and economy are hard hit by the US sanctions.

A second part deals with the fragility of the Eurasian bloc, with Russia entering an election period and India appearing to be turning to Washington and tightening its stance towards China and Pakistan shortly after the accession of these two countries to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). The situation is also becoming tense in Central Asia, as a result of the renewed US military involvement in Afghanistan and the import, in the north of the country, of exiled jihadists from Syria, after the defeat of ISIS.

A third part presents three critical zones : Ukraine, Venezuela and Korea.

The following charts are presented and studied :

Jupiter-Uranus opposition of September 28, 2017

USA – Networks of Mars/Neptune and Sun/Saturn

India and Narendra Modi

Pakistan et Shahid Khaqan Abbasi
