9/11 - An Astrological Investigation

On 11 Sep 2001 two planes flew into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, followed by a few more terrorist attacks just outside Washington, D.C. & Pennsylvania, killing almost 3,000 people. This article presents an astrological analysis behind the shocking events that shook the world that day.

9/11 - An Astrological Investigation
On 11 September 2001, 19 militants associated with the Al Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks in the United States. Two planes flew into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed at a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.

Those 102 minutes in which the attacks took place changed the history of America and left the whole world in shock. At 8:45 a.m. on a clear Tuesday morning, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact left a gaping, burning hole near the 80th floor of the 110-story skyscraper, instantly killing hundreds of people and trapping hundreds more in higher floors.

As the evacuation of the tower and its twin got underway, television cameras broadcasted live images of what initially appeared to be a freak accident. Then, 18 minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767—United Airlines Flight 175—appeared out of the sky, turned sharply toward the World Trade Center and sliced into the south tower near the 60th floor.

The collision caused a massive explosion that showered burning debris over surrounding buildings and onto the streets below. It immediately became clear that America was under attack.

What were the planetary alignments on 11 Sep 2001? 

  • On 11 September 2001, all the above mentioned combinations were there, with ferocious Mars conjoining Ketu in the 3rd house prompting the terrorists to make an aggressive attempt.
  • The aspect of Saturn in the 8th house (hurdles and sudden plot) on Mars was responsible for this act of terrorism, which was unfortunately successful due to the placement of Saturn in the 8th house of sudden act.
  • We all know how a terrorists attack is in a hidden form and comes up with a very surprising conclusion and about how the Rahu-Ketu axis plays a role in terror attacks. Further, the placement of Rahu in conjunction with Moon and Jupiter had their 7th aspect on Mars and Ketu where Mars is the lord of the house of public (7th house); and if Mars comes in association with Rahu and Ketu, then a disaster can assume the form of massacre.
  • The aspect of Mars and Ketu on the conjunction of Rahu with Moon and Jupiter indicates that the presence of Moon resulted in foreign assault as it was placed in Read More
Astrologically, if a birth chart indicates any such sign or planetary relationships, they need to be turned towards creative activities. If we can successfully divert their interest and energy towards the right direction and utilize this energy in the benefit of the development and uplift of humanity, we can make earth a better place to live.
