Internet spam: Hercules battles the Hydra



Heracles & the Hydra





The internet around the world has been slowed down in what security experts are describing as the biggest cyber-attack of its kind in history. A row between a spam-fighting group and hosting firm has sparked retaliation attacks affecting the wider internet. Spamhaus, a group based in both London and Geneva, is a non-profit organisation which aims to help email providers filter out spam and other unwanted content. To do this, the group maintains a number of blocklists - a database of servers known to be being used for malicious purposes. Recently, Spamhaus blocked servers maintained by Cyberbunker, a Dutch web host which states it will host anything with the exception of child pornography or terrorism-related material. Spamhaus has alleged that Cyberbunker, in cooperation with "criminal gangs" from Eastern Europe and Russia, is behind the attack.

The Capricorn Ingress chart is the most widely used tool in mundane astrology to understand world events. Shown here is the sidereal Capricorn Ingress chart at London  progressed to March 26 when the attack is reported to have been the severest.  The MC of the Ingress chart is 28ge46 conjunct an X-Ray source in the constellation Columba called the Machine.



The Machine conjoins Saiph, the right leg of Orion; Wezn, Beta Columba; and the northern Quasar 3C147 of Auriga. These entries resides at ~2° sidereal Gemini, directly opposite our Galactic Center. The Machine, is a high-energy dynamic x-ray source; a BL Lacertae type object, which emit through a wide band of electromagnetic spectrum, from radio to gamma-rays but with an almost complete absence of emissions in the optical band. Appropriately named, the Machine articulates the essence of the human cognitive mind, the intellect, which processes logistical related matters for humankind .[1] (Here we are already getting a clue that we could be dealing with a machine like a computer server)

The progressed chart shows the MC at 6Vi16 opposite the radix Moon [6pi39] and square Jupiter [6ge44]. Jupiter is square Neptune on the IC.  Radix Uranus [5ar04], transit Uranus [8ar] and transit Sun [5ar] are all conjunct the alpha and delta Reticulum [7ar] with the recent Mars-Uranus conjunction having taken place right there. This position is quincunx the MC of the progressed chart.

Reticulum [2] means a netlike formation or structure; a network. (the world wide web!) In Ancient Rome a class of gladiator, the retiarius, was armed with a net which he used to immobilize his opponent by entangling him in the meshes.

Diana Rosenberg  [3] describing the sector between 6 to 8 Virgo  states that Mercury, ruler of tropical Virgo, dominates here so we have skilled technicians dedicated to research using science to ground their beliefs in strictures of laws, rules, data and “facts”. The Great Bear’s [nu Ursae Majoris, 6vi49] maternal instincts brings an interest in human rights and helping the underdog. (that would be Spamhaus trying to protect users of the WWW).  Thuban, [7vi37] alpha Draco gathers, collects, stashes and guards their books, specimens, data, money and possessions. The Lion (rho Leonis 6vi33) adds a need to dominate and control with impulsiveness and aggression. (might this be Cyberbunker). Here is also Upsilon Hydrae [8vi29], the fabulous water snake with nine heads  killed by Hercules in the second of his twelve labors. Hercules found that if he cut off one of the heads, two new heads grew back: hence some evils are spoken of as "many headed hydras"(that would be the servers of Cyberbunker spewing ‘poison’ all over the web). There was a belief amongst ancient Arab astrologers that when a comet was in Hydra, [4]  poison was scattered by it over the world.  It is reported [5]  that the comet 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann is currently in the constellation Hydra! (incidentally this could also be linked to the mysterious death of pigs and birds in China reportedly recently)Diana Rosenberg  [3] describing the sector between 6 to 8 Virgo  states that Mercury, ruler of tropical Virgo, dominates here so we have skilled technicians dedicated to research using science to ground their beliefs in strictures of laws, rules, data and “facts”.

Under this sector, Diana Rosenberg also  notes that there could be “storms, sometimes of demonic intensity”. (it is reported that  at one time these attacks were peaking at 300 Gbps …a demonic storm!) Finally, there was a belief amongst ancient Arab astrologers that when a comet was in Hydra, [4]  poison was scattered by it over the world.  It is reported [5]  that the comet 29P/Schwassmann-Wachmann is currently in the constellation Hydra!
