Iran, Korea and Sidereal Saturn’s Entry in Virgo
According to Vedic Astrology, Sidereal Saturn (Shani) enters Virgo on September 9th 2009. Judging from past history, we expect major events to unfold during these dates next year. Last two times Saturn entered in Virgo, there was major turmoil in US-Korea and US-Iran relationships respectively.
In the third week of September 1950, when Sidereal Saturn entered Virgo, General Douglas MacArthur of the U.S. Army orchestrated an amphibious landing at Incheon, near Seoul in Korea, to relieve United Nations forces cornered on the southeastern tip of the harbor. Forty-three U.S warplanes dropped 93 napalm tanks on the the eastern end of Wolmi Island, allegedly hitting enemy troops and civilians alike.
In the first week of November 1979, when Sidereal Saturn entered Virgo next time, the Iran hostage crisis took place in which 52 U.S. diplomats were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981 after a group of students took over the American embassy in support of Iran’s revolution.
These major events have involved USA, as Virgo is the sign in which natal Saturn is posited in Vedic horoscope of USA. Vedic Astrology, thus provides a clear understanding of the planetary basis of complex world events.
