Only Breath, Benazir Bhutto

Benazir Bhutto was assasinated today. Mars in Cancer opposite Sun-Jupiter-Pluto over the Aries points. This was her Mars Return which included her Sun at the end of Gemini opposing Pluto. I talked about her chart briefly here after the first attempt on her life shortly after she returned to Pakistan in October.

Why was she killed? Over some small difference of opinion between people.

A friend just posted a wonderful poem on his blog that I'm going to add here. It's called "Only Breath" and was written by the Mystic Arabic Poet Rumi. The translation I believe is by Coleman Barks. Rumi's birth data is given below that, information from Astrotheme.

Only Breath

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion

or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up

from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,

am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam or Eve or any

origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved.



b. Sept. 30, 1207 Balkh (Afghanistan)

Sun 14 Libra; Moon 15 Capricorn (noontime chart); NN 29 Aquarius

Neptune in Aries in a Grand Trine to Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Scorpio.
Neptune is also trine Pluto in Leo and squaring Saturn in Gemini and opposing Mercury in Libra.
