Thanks James,

I value your input here as I know you have worked on events in Turkey for some time.

I have never really studied national charts for Turkey or the nativity of President Erdogan

I will have a look at the ingresses but if you would like to comment on any favoured national chart or President Erdogan that would be good.

Mark

thanks mark,

ditto your input which is generally invaluable...

even though we don't have an exact time for erdogan, we can see how the eclipse data, especially the sept 1st 2016 eclipse data - hits his chart very directly... this goes with the cloud that has descended on turkey and erdogan thanks the saturn/neptune square and how it impacts his personal chart in particular..

I see Transiting Mars and and SN are on the radix Jupiter (MC ruler) of the Turkey chart for 1923, This was the Proclamation of the Turkish Republic following the end of the Ottoman Empire:

transit sun-uranus square at the 1923 chart mercury/saturn conjunction... t saturn 45/135 and etc it all..

mercury rules 12/3 houses, while saturn rules 7/8 in the cancer rising chart.. t mars on natal jupiter as mark points out along with t nodal axis on the natal midheaven axis.. solar arc neptune is at 24 scorpio as well, so a tie in with natal jupiter and transit of mars here.. profection year has jupiter as lord which re emphasizes all this..

Forces loyal to Turkish president say they have put down the military coup attempt

Last night (15/07/16) a section of military said it had seized power and imposed martial law. Tanks were seen in Istanbul and a section of the military took control of the national TV channel from where a statement was read out.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said coup attempt was "act of treason"

Explosions and gunfire reported in Istanbul and Ankara

Ninety people died during overnight clashes, many of them civilians, officials say. Over 1500 injured

Hundreds of soldiers are said to have been arrested, with five generals suspended.

a badly executed coup if ever there was one.. end result - erdogans hand is temporarily strengthened.. it can't bode well for turkey with this type of dynamic in the immediate background. not sure what is in store for erdogan this year, but as i have been saying all along - i don't think it is all that pretty, astrologically speaking..

additional comment... for anyone who has been following events the past few years in turkey, the clamp down on an independent media has been ongoing, with trials and witch hunts on senior editors of news outlets and etc. etc. - all rationalized various ways.. what is interesting here is the latest attempt at redesigning the judicial courts and system with the following 'new wrinkle' in erdogans push to dictate the countrys direction - all democratically of course!

"Turkish prosecutors have issued arrest warrants for 140 Constitutional Court members and 48 members of the Council of State in the wake of Friday night’s attempted coup. Ten arrests have already been made, local media reported.

The ten jurists detained were all members of the Council of State, which is Turkey’s top administrative court, NTV broadcaster reported."

There have been a lot of conflicting times issued for when the Turkish coup commenced. Its actually been quite a confusing process.

The Start of the Coup-Closing of Istanbul Bridges

One key event seems to be when Istanbul's Bosphorus Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge were both closed by the Turkish military.

Reuters and some other other News sources are now giving a specific time of 22.29 EEST (19.29 GMT) or 22.30 for when Istanbul's Bosphorus Bridge and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge were both closed by the Turkish military. Dogan News Agency footage shows cars and buses being diverted. This seems to be a symbolic moment for when the coup commenced.



The presence of Neptune on the ASC of the chart located for Ankara rather underlines the disorganised and poorly executed nature of the coup.

The Telegraph newspaper (UK) and Al Jeezera gives 10.30 EEST for the bridges closing.

On the other hand the Turkish astrologer Öner Döşer is putting out 22.05 local time as the start of coup.

I have also picked up a report from an eye witness blogger living in Istanbul who states the following: ''The events began unfolding around 10 p.m. Friday as the military moved to stop traffic over two of Istanbul’s bridges, which cross the Bosporus and connect the European and Asian sides of the city.''

Other reports seem to suggest an even earlier time for around 09.45 EEST.

At present finding the right time here feels a bit like chasing a rabbit down a hole.

Interestingly, the chart for 10.29 EEST has Neptune on the ASC in Pisces with rather describes the confused nature of the coup and the problems identifying a time!


Turkish TV Report Military Statement

Reuters report at 11.25 EEST (20.25) GMT Turkish TV report a statement purportedly from Turkish military says it has taken power to protect democratic order. The message, sent by email and reported on Turkish TV channels, says all of Turkey's existing foreign relations will be maintained.
