– 9/11: the attack on the twin towers
Note: this article has been reformatted to comply with current technology, but otherwise contains the same content as the article published in 2001 on this site at the time of the 9/11 attack on NYC.
Two planes crashed deliberately into both towers of the World Trade Center at mid-morning on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Within the hour, both buildings collapsed, sending huge plumes of dust and smoke billowing throughout the island of Manhattan.
At around the same time, another plane crashed into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the US Military, in Washington DC, the nation's capital.
These commercial passenger jets are believed to have been hijacked by terrorists and deliberately crashed, killing all on board, not to mention the presently unknown number of casualties on the ground. A fourth jet airliner also crashed outside Pittsburgh, PA at around the same time.
The destruction of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and other terrorist attacks on Washington DC in the USA have devastated the hearts of these great cities and caused huge sorrow and sadness to everyone. Our prayers and sympathies go out to all who have been injured, or lost loved ones in this fearful and awe-inspiring disaster. It is truly a dis-aster (torn apart by stars) because the chart for the moment of the first attack at approximately 8.43 am EDT sees the activation of some powerful stars, planets and sensitive points in the NY chart and the charts of the US and its constitution. It is notable that the attack took place on the 11th of September, a Tuesday. Tuesday is traditionally a day of Mars, the god of war. See part 5 of this article for the ramifications of the number 11.
What made them do it?
I have constructed the chart of the first attack and aligned it with the chart of the US constitution, the chart of New York City and the chart of the establishment of the Republic of the USA. These relationships, which are most interesting, will be discussed in more detail later in the article.
There are some devastating planetary aspects on the day, but the most striking thing is that the chart of the first attack (8.43 AM, EDT) in New York City is heavily stimulated by fixed stars. (Click to view the chart of the First Attack. Now view it on the US constitution chart, showing Fixed Stars.)
(1) Algorab is rising, exactly conjunct the ascendant in the 14th degree of Libra. This star is malefic, of the nature of Mars (action; passion; violence) and Saturn (karma; sorrows). It brings destruction, repulsiveness, malevolence, fiendishness and lying, suicide, greed and injuries. This star is also in exact trine aspect to Saturn which is conjunct Cursa (see below) and conjunction to Mercury (communication; travel), showing the successful outcome of the exercise (blowing up the building). This is rising, conjunct Neptune (deception; delusion; treachery) in the chart of the US constitution. Now view the attack chart superimposed on the US constitution chart, showing Fixed Stars.
(2) Betelgeuse is exactly conjunct the Moon in the 29th degree of Gemini, the Twins. This star is also malefic, of the nature of Mars and Mercury. It stimulates calamities, danger and violence. Just what the Twin Towers did not need.
(3) Alnazl is exactly conjunct Mars in the 2nd degree of Capricorn. This star is malefic, traditionally producing blindness. Mars (and Alnazl) are exactly conjunct the Dragon's Head (Moon's north node) of the US constitution chart in the fourth house of endings. This shows a powerful karmic link, reinforced by the close conjunction with the Dragon's Tail (south node) of the attack chart and the star Polis (see below).
(4) Polis is exactly conjunct the Dragon's Tail (past life connection) of the attack chart in the 4th degree of Capricorn. This fortunate star is in close conjunction with attack Mars, showing that its characteristics of martial desires, high ambitions, domination, keen perception and success have meant that the operation, a warlike and martial exercise, was fully realised in a way that the terrorists would have been most satisfied with.
(5) Propus is exactly conjunct the Dragon's Head (material position; soul growth; karmic objectives) in the 4th degree of Cancer in the mid-heaven of the US constitution chart. This malefic star stimulates over confidence, pride, shamelessness and violence and is in close conjunction with Mars in the 3rd degree of Cancer for the US constiutution.
(6) Pollux is conjunct the Part of Fortune of the attack chart in the 24th degree of Cancer. This evil star is of the nature of Mars, Moon and Uranus, stimulating audacity, astrology, ruin, disgrace, death and calamity. It is known as the "Heartless Judge". Pollux also rules contemplative speculation, so perhaps something good may come from the increased astrological awareness that it will generate through articles like this.
This article goes on to consider the effects of other fixed stars, planets and power points on the chart of the US, NYC and the US constitution.
