Mundane astrology is a sister practice to financial astrology where we forecast and analyze global and political events from an astrological lens. Financial astrologers often study both since major world events can seriously effect investments and markets.
The above chart indicates great tension in the sky. Most significantly there's a Grand Cardinal Cross on the angles of the 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th houses. The four angles are called "The Cross of Matter" because these two oppositions connect very important points in a chart: the Ascendant (AC), Descendant (DC), Midheaven (MC) and Imum Coeli (IC).
Life events tend to sharply manifest at these points.
For non-astrologers, you can see the angles are placed similarly and respectively at hours 9 (AC), 3 (DC), 12 (MC) and 6 (IC) on a round clock or watch. Especially when triggered by transiting planets, angles in cardinal signs readily suggest a turning point or time of initiating something substantial.
The inside middle circle shows all the above planetary alignments. The visible big red square shows just how much the angles are being hit.
The nation of Israel was born May 14, 1948 at 4 pm in Tel Aviv-Yafo is shown in the light gray circle according to this data: https://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Nation:_Israel
Exceptional astrological relevance of the October 7, 2023 Hamas attack on Israel is shown by transits in the dark gray circle to Israel's natal chart. The time used is 6:37 am in Jerusalem, which is when The Weather Channel states sunrise (daybreak) occurred and where the country's air raid sirens originated.
Professional astrologers typically agree it takes at least 3 unique pairings to forecast an event will occur. When Hamas attacked Israel on October 7 there were indeed more:
- Transiting South Node (the past) and Mars (God of war, aggression) conjoined Israel's Ascendant or AC (self, physical body)
- Transiting North Node (future direction) and Eris (Goddess of war, violence, discord) conjoined Israel's Descendant or DC (partnerships, relationships)
- Transiting Pluto (power, transformation) conjoined Israel's IC (home, land) and opposed Israel's MC (status, achievement) + all the above transits create a Grand Cardinal Cross
- Transiting Uranus (surprise events, disruptions) conjoined Israel's Sun (life force, soul) and opposed Israel's Chiron (wounds that need healing)
- Transiting Jupiter (expansion, exaggeration) conjoined Israel's North Node (future) and opposed Israel's South Node (past)
- Transiting Venus (relationships, money) conjoined Israel's Mars (war, aggression)
Can astrology predict events? Perhaps, when we're looking for them. We should have looked more closely in this case. Ultimately, people are the variable. Our free will of human energy forces for positive/good or negative/evil always determine results.
As I wrote in my July to December 2023 Forecast Report:
"...One other insight about the North Node is how it will link to Eris, the dwarf planet of discord and strife. In Greek mythology, goddess Eris is the sister of planet Mars, always stirring up action and rebellion, including violence. Eris naturally moves very slowly as a far outer spheric body. Overlapping, the Node North will be slowing down and stationing at the very same degrees as Eris between 25-24° Aries beginning August 30 through November 30, 2023. This pairing is not optimistic for the collective. Unfortunately, with this transit, I expect a stressful and upsetting time not only for markets but in all areas of life, culture and world events. Eris in Aries, ruled by Mars, sitting at the same point as the collective soul of humanity, equals a ton of passionate aggression and anger."
I'll post my November forecast soon. For now I'll add it seems caution and prayers are needed during November. Currently there's a Moon (Lunar) Wobble at 24° Aries from September 27 to November 30. Moon Wobbles are always a stressful and contentious time and we usually see dramatic events unfold during these periods, especially when the Sun is within 30° of either the North or South Node.

October skyward trends indicate markets look choppy and overall more bearish than bullish. It will likely be an intense eclipse season for everyone. Both the solar and lunar eclipses are in signs ruled by planet Venus. This suggests money, love and relationships will be emphasized in dynamic focus.
Uranus remains stationed at 22° Taurus - Charubel's degree of collapse - until October 21, 2023. Note that markets may turn volatile or negative when this degree is aligned with another planet by conjunction, square or opposition. As explained in prior 2022 forecasts, there was a bear market wave precisely when Saturn was square the North Node at 22° Taurus from April 3 to June 18, 2022. I talk about this and much more in my recent Kepler College webinar now posted on their YouTube Channel:
For the above calendar, here are my "Investor Mood Indicators" (IMI):
green = bullish
red = bearish
lavender = volatile
black = indecision, confusion
yellow = energy shift
navy = power trading
Key dates to watch (all dates based on Eastern Time):
October 2-4, 2023
Mars conjoins the South Node. The past catches up with our current actions as student loans repayments return. Mercury may result in tricky trades while opposite Neptune yet in smooth flow to Pluto before entering Libra.
October 8-12, 2023
Mars squares Pluto on Sunday although this power struggle influence will be felt up to 5 days before the exact alignment. Venus enters Virgo for more practical and critical attitudes concerning money and love. We’ll feel even more serious as Venus opposes Saturn early on the 10th just before Pluto turns direct indicating a huge and transformative shift. In addition, the Sun opposite Chiron infers big inflation news. Mars enters Scorpio by the 12th signaling less imbalance and more determined actions in all life areas.
October 14, 2023
Balance is desired as the Solar Eclipse in Libra conjunct Mercury and oppose Chiron. The 50-year inflationary cycle is highlighted.
October 19-23, 2023
Heightened egos along with frenzied messages and markets are likely as the Sun conjoins Mercury and both square Pluto. If we’re lucky a coinciding trine between Venus and Jupiter will help expand wealth and love. Mercury and the Sun also enter Scorpio in trine to Saturn for no-nonsense deep thinking to focus on fortifying structures.
October 28-29, 2023
A Lunar Eclipse in Taurus coincides with a rare Mercury conjunct Mars in Scorpio opposite Jupiter in Taurus. Volatile emotions and seesaw markets are quite likely now. Taurus represents money and love so aim for stability. Eclipse energies can last a while and can launch us to new levels if we ride the energy wisely.
October 31, 2023
Venus makes a trine to Uranus implying surprises and explosive action in banking and/or tech. Coincidentally the Fed meets today and November 1st. It’s too soon to tell if another interest rate increase awaits us. Skyward trends suggest a 50/50 chance. As I’ve noted before, people (in this case the free will decisions of the Federal Reserve Board) are always the variable.
