Oradour-sur-Glane (Occitan: Orador de Glana) is a commune in the Haute-Vienne department in the
region in west-central .
The original village was destroyed on 10 June 1944, when 642 of its
inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a German Waffen-SS
company. A new village was built after the war on a nearby site but on the
orders of the then French president, Charles de Gaulle, the original has been
maintained as a permanent memorial. France
German investigators have now [Jan 30,2013] opened a new inquiry into the wartime massacre of 642 people by SS troops in the central French village of Oradour-sur-Glane.They acted on evidence uncovered in the archived files of East Germany's Stasi secret police about six soldiers, then aged 18 or 19, who are still alive.
Regular readers would by now be familiar with the fact that the effect of eclipses last long after they are over and gone. Shown above is the solar eclipse of 21st May 2012.This eclipse was conjunct the stars of Perseus and Pleaides. The Pleiades causes bereavement, mourning, sorrows and tragedies. [The Living Stars, Dr. Eric Morse, p.39.]
The eclipse was placed in the 4th house. In mundane astrology, amongst other things, the fourth house is associated with land and agriculture as well as history or the past . With the eclipse here we can see that the incident referred to is from the past…a past that is connected with a tragedy[Pleaides].. and in a way also connected to agricultural land [4th house] and by association to a village.
The Ascendant of the chart is conjunct the star Altair while Jupiter on the IC is conjunct the star Algol.
In classical astrology, Altair is of military force and power. Siderealist Andrés Takra adds: "Altair has been associated with …conquerors and tyrants”.
Beta (β) Perseus, Algol, is a bright star positioned on the severed head that Perseus is carrying. The Hebrews knew Algol as Rosh ha Satan, Satan's Head. The Chinese gave it the gruesome title Tseih She, the Piled-up Corpses so that its association with massacres has been throughout history.
It is, therefore, quite appropriate to associate it with a military massacre from the past.
The next question in the reader’s mind would be “Is this borne out if we progress the chart to Jan 30,2013”. Sure enough it is. Notice the Grand Cross aspecting the progressed meridian axis. The elements of the cross convey a story.
Pluto-Uranus-Zeus: Freedom movements [Uranus] bring about vindictive [Pluto] reaction from the military [Zeus].
Hades: History, the past
Pluto-Hades: Resentments and lack of forgiveness or unacknowledged emotions bring an internal festering or putrefaction (unless addressed)
Nick Fiorenza in the Lunar Planner outlines the meaning of the Venus transit extremely well:
In concert with our Taurus Lunar Cycle, we find inspiration for an enterprising fresh start, to engage in a new journey in life. Enterprises of the Heart and Art are especially favored. The transit inspires us to create the means to move forward in a new heart-centered way that supports the fundamental physical needs for people, home and family—a key quality of Taurus.
Our Full Moon eclipse brings us from our original Perseus-Pleiades Eclipse New Moon theme to the perspective provided by Ophiuchus (the healer) and Hercules. The Lunar Partial Eclipse is the second stage of our eclipse lunar cycle. It provides an opportune time to surrender emotionally as well as any need to be in control. It invites us to surrender our very human mold, that sense of self that we hold together with the tension of our thoughts and beliefs. It invites us to become energetically wide open to breathe in the infusion of feminine energy about to emblazon the Earth through the Venus Transit. It brings us to the realization that this lunar cycle is about establishing a greater equilibrium between the masculine and feminine principles with in ourselves, and to claim a greater level of self mastery by doing so, which we can then express throughout our lives and into the world.
Essentially this is about forgiving and healing wounds of the past...something only Venus  and the feminine can teach us. Germany is certainly responding very well to these energies.
