The tough shell of the moony crab The Presidents Report
Just when we all thought that things would finally settle down to a
dull winter roar, another exciting opportunity has arisen. Many of
you may not have heard of a British astrologer named Paul
Westran but not only has he written a ground breaking book on
synastry, he is actually now a resident of our fair city, a Vic Parker
to be exact, so once we got to know of his existence we pounced
on this glorious potential and he has graciously agreed to do a one
day seminar for us on Sunday, September 9
th
. More details in
next month’s MM but do circle the 9
th
September in your calendar.

On a much less pleasant front we unfortunately see ourselves forced to implement a membership price
increase, since the National Council AGM in Perth earlier this year passed a resolution to increase the
state’s contribution to the national body. As you may be aware, by far the biggest operating expense is the
printing of the quarterly journals and - on a state level - the monthly MM. In both cases there has been a
quite significant rise in cost. We are anxious not to burden our members’ finances unduly and have
decided to only increase our fees to cover the exact contribution hike to the national body.

Furthermore the good news is that we will not implement the cost rise until January 2008, although we
are already passing on the increased amount to the national FAA. For a single and pension membership
the hike will be $5. Carol will have outlined all the details further on in this MM. I went over the books;
the last membership fee increase we had was in 2001, some six years ago.

Back to pleasant things again. We had our “Neptune Dreaming” astro chat evening at Donna’s the other
night and it was once again a wonderful evening. In synchronicity with Neptune being the 9
th
planet, there
were nine of us around the table. Donna who is a trained therapist and specialises in dreamwork, got a
volunteer tell us her dream, we then all contributed our impressions, then the dreamer repeated telling us
her dream and once again we shared our slightly altered and more developed impressions, before
wrapping up the evening. In keeping with the theme, the dream itself was quite Neptunian. The next astro
chat will be on Aug 2
nd
at Carol’s place and we will be looking at the Angles in our charts.

Our best wishes go to Penny and Neville who continue to experience ups and downs with their health, but
on the whole it does look as if things are finally looking up, and we are all eagerly awaiting the Saturn
into Virgo ingress (all that is except for our Virgo members and those with planets early in the mutable
signs) to give Neville and Penny a well deserved rest from the hammering they’ve been getting.

And finally, many very hearty congratulations, cheers and hurrahs for Barbara Brackley on her 80th
Birthday. Eighty trips around the sun must surely count for something. May there be many more to come!

Predictions Concerning the Events of 11
th
September 2001 made by ROBERT ZOLLER

CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE JUDGEMENT

On Wednesday 9 April 1997 at the Urania Trust Astrology Centre in London, England, Robert Zoller
publicly expressed his increasing concern about the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and the direct threat
this posed to the Western democracies. This was his first public statement on the matter. It has been
interpreted as a prediction but was simply a Consideration before Judgment. Though its importance as
such should not be under-estimated as it shows that a least one astrologer was considering what would a
few years later become a major concern for democracy.

On the following Monday 14 April 1997 at a small gathering of astrologers including Liz Greene, founder
of the Psychological Astrology School, it was stated (as quoted from contemporaneous notes from that 4
hour meeting).
"Terrorism will become the greatest single threat to the West in the early part of the next century [21st]. I
anticipate the latter part of the year 2001 and the early part of 2002 will see a marked increase in
combating terrorism. "When Robert Zoller was asked about his examination of the solar eclipse chart
{which would be visible from England and across Europe some 2 ½ years later in August 1999} as the
portent of disaster he replied -
"Many people link that eclipse to the predictions of Nostradamus and thus foresee major world-wide
changes taking place almost immediately or in particular associated with the new Millennium. Looking
from the Predictive astrology viewpoint there is evidence that the end of 1999 will signal the start of
world change and you should examine very carefully the countries across which the path of the August
[1999] eclipse passes. But it is a mistake to view these things singularly.”
Robert was then pressed on what factors should be taken account. He replied,
"Every prediction concerning world events needs three things. Firstly, the astronomical index. Secondly,
a way to qualify it and lastly the correct means to link it to some place on earth".

Mercury Messenger

July 2007 No. 006



Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. 006 Page 3
He was asked, "Do you consider the August [1999] eclipse as the main astronomical index.” Robert
replied,
"The eclipse is one but I would urge you to look at the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in the following May
and then when you have qualified it to then examine the link to specific countries.”
There then followed discussion about how this was done, reference being made to the problems of the
Ptolemaic rulerships and in particular the rulerships used for the USA and the chart Robert used. There
was further discussion contrasting the absence of the modern planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) in
Predictive astrology with their use in Psychological astrology. At the end of this technical discussion, the
remark was passed, which at the time was taken to be a joke –
"America will have a new president when all this kicks off and he will be in the stamp of Bush. A
younger more inexperienced version from the same house".
On this latter point, it is important to ascertain if indeed Robert meant specifically what could be implied
i.e. that a son of Bush would be in the White House. In December 2000 this point was clarified with the
following -
"No. From what I remember the comment related to mundane astrological interpretation alone.”
The significance of this answer is instructive as to the particular approach you should adopt to prediction.
That the comment was relating to mundane astrological interpretation alone means that at the time the
astrologer made the comment (in April 1997) he was not exploring a specific astrological question. Thus,
he was not answering after examination of the charts that raised that issue e.g. the chart for the
presidential election 2000 nor to natal examination of G W Bush. The Predictive (astrological) factors
which must be examined to determine such a prediction were not those that were being considering when
the observation was made, and while that observation supports a later mundane event, it is in itself not
sufficient to be credited as a prediction of it. It may only be ranked as an observation or a Consideration
before Judgment – that which must be accounted for in the final judgment. That judgment is the
prediction.

To some this does not obviate the fact that it then proved accurate. However, please recall the double
check system that must be employed. For it to be a prediction, the intuitive and the deductive must be in
perfect accord. Here we only have a comment based on intuition, which is not enough for the Predictive
astrologer and is not enough to make it an astrological prediction.

At the time of the comment, the astrologer had not examined the astrological charts needed to confirm the
intuitive observation. Equally so, something that is not meant to be prediction before an event cannot then
be made a prediction after it.

One further matter should be addressed here. Many astrologers are capable of complex calculations /
delineations in their mind without always having to sit down and tease things out on paper. Often they can
encapsulate both complex ideas and understandings in a sentence or two. This comes from years of
practice and thus it is not uncommon to find them making, as it seems, insightful remarks “out of the
blue”. This should not though, be confused with clairvoyance. It is rather, as with the case relating to
Bush, an example of what earlier was referred to as the quantum leap and seems to be the mark of the
better class of astrologer. Nevertheless, that having been said these same astrologers remain very strict as
to what passes for an astrological prediction and what does not. In this way, particularly at crucial times,
they seek to avoid gross error.

On 12
th
August 1998, in a letter to Nick Campion, former President of the British AA, Robert Zoller
expressed the threat of the Islamic fundamentalist by way of published observations. While these were a
private correspondence the letter was released on http://www.robhand.com/zollet.htm . It was first
published on the Internet in December 1998 where it has been available to the public for nearly three

Mercury Messenger

July 2007 No. 006



Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. 006 Page 4
years now. It is substantially the same text as that published in December 1998 in the public subscription
journal Nuntius
1[17]
.

These Considerations before Judgment were only concerned with the pro-active stance of the USA,
which lead to the December 1998 bombing of Iraq and the consequences of that action. You will note the
examination of the countries that were to fall under the 1999 eclipse path gives an indication of some the
astrology behind the Considerations but only little. The statements relating to the nuclear capability and
the then impossibility of a Moslem invasion of the USA are non-astrological factual observations.
However, they show the continued preoccupation of the only astrologer to have publicly identified the
threat of Islam to the West.

A year later in the August 2000 issue of Nuntius more specific information was published about the
August 1999 eclipse. By then it had been exerting an influence for one year and still had a further 18
months of impact.
“From September we are entering a period of increased danger to us in the West. In an earlier Nuntius I
said that there is an increasing threat to the US citizens and this is particularly so on the Eastern sea
boarder [sic]. I have also said that this threat is linked not so much to a new boldness in terrorist planning
but more to US incompetence. At that time I couched those remarks as being non-astrological so as to
play down the warning but I say again as was said in the July Nuntius if the US does not cease acting
incompetently, it will invite the depredations of adventurers such as Osama bin Laden and Saddam. This
is a wake up call. Our way of life and cultural values (& our lives) are at stake.”
Again, we are seeing Considerations before Judgment.
We do not yet have the precision that will qualify them as astrological prediction. Nonetheless, there was
still enough here to alert some others to the particulars of the problem and to the probable danger. Of-
course, those “some” who would have made the difference are those who have political or strategic clout
in American society but there is still a way to go before the proper connection between them and those
astrologers, who wish to have anything to do with them, can be established again. It is true that the
considerations and later the predictions could have been brought to the attention of the mainstream media
but for the reasons expressed below this was not done.

A warning was given. It is clearly based on prediction but is a warning nonetheless. It is the hallmark of
the capable astrologer that they only make public predictions as a last resort. You may also like to note
that Nuncius was the only publication to specifically mention bin Laden and Saddam. In the earlier July
Nuntius Zoller had added “Milosevic” but by August he had been dropped. This is not surprising, as by
August there was time to rectify and examine the chart of “Milosevic.”

The Considerations before Judgment specific to bin Laden and Saddam could not be made into
predictions because the predictive intuitive side could not be confirmed. In simple terms, the charts being
worked with did not allow him a perfect match between the predictive intuition and the deductive
astrology. Only with accurate, rectified natal charts for bin Laden and Saddam could a perfect match
have been achieved so as to make concrete prediction. For some, these Considerations were impressive
enough to pass as prediction. For others though, they remained insufficient and below the standards of
integrity demanded of the astrologer who has an understanding of the real place of prediction.

“As the next 12 months unfold we will see increased tension in those countries that fell under the path of
the August 1999 eclipse but after the end of August 2001 this will take on a new twist and it will be the
last 6 months of the eclipse effect that will be the worse.”

Mars, the "red planet," is the fourth planet from the sun.
Q: What is the proof that life exists on Mars?

A: One of the main bits of evidence that life has existed on Mars came from a meteorite that was found in
the Antarctic. The meteorite came from Mars many years ago when a rock smashed into the surface and
sent the rock flying off into space. Eventually it landed here on Earth.

Inside the rock we found tiny little things that are the result of some sort of very
simple life. We do not know if life still exists on Mars but if it does it will be very
simple life deep under the surface.


Q: A meteor was found on Earth that came from Mars. How do we know where it
came from?
A: In the 1970s the Viking spacecraft landed on Mars. When it was there, it measured the types and
mixture of gas in the atmosphere. The meteorite that was found had tiny pockets of gas trapped inside it.
On checking the types and mixture of gasses in the pockets of gas, we found that it was exactly the same
as the Viking spacecraft had measured on Mars. We have not found this mixture anywhere else.

Zoller Predictions …..continued from Page 4 ………………..

The additional astrological factors responsible for this statement are deliberately omitted. The reasons for
these omissions should be made clear. Firstly, and this is a matter of great concern within the astrological
community of America, many scholars have fallen prey to those who plagiarise their work. This is a
perennial problem, the result being that they are reluctant in a significant number of cases, to release
much of the astrological analysis that underlies their work. To see knaves steal it before your very eyes is
one thing, to see them deform it is quite another as it works against astrology – and it is that which must
be guarded against

“After September 2001 when the first big crisis will have hit the US we will never be the same again. By
the following February 2002 the real game plan will have become obvious to us and though it may not
then be part of public consciousness we can expect to see our external enemies expand as they are
supported by China though they will remain hidden from view until it is time to strike. This is the
Sino/Islamic alliance.”

Here we have prediction interlaced with a warning. From what you have read so far, you should
understand instantly the use of the words “we can expect…” as you should “time to strike”. You will
also notice another reference to China, first mentioned as a potential menace by Robert in August 1998.
You should also note the time frame – this is your clue as to which charts you should be looking at.
Those of you who read all the observations and predictions in continuum will also be alerted to other
factors such as the use of nuclear weapons etc – but remember when you look at the charts in question be
sure that you do not approach them with a mind full of possibilities – firstly read the horoscope and
nothing else. Now let us look at the September 2000 issue of Nuntius.

“I again draw attention to the increasing threat of Islamic terrorism and that it will be felt on the US
mainland. The greatest period of danger is in September 2001. I am not looking at any other forms of
terrorism though also anticipate others. I am looking at terrorism that is rooted in Islamic fundamentalism
and directed at everyday citizens going about their daily business in our own cities. The destruction and
loss of life will shock us all. I repeat my warning now for the third time that unless the US remains
vigilante [sic] it will be caught unprepared and will be rocked to its very core. It will be an act of war but
unlike any other in our history. Our culture and way of life and lives are at risk. For the third time I say
this, we have had our wake up call.”

This is the most shocking of all that has been published thus far. Shocking not because of the accuracy of
the observations and predictions but because of the clarity with which they show such tremendous
despair. It is relating what results from the perfect match – the coming together of the predictive intuition
and the deductive astrology. The future is to be laid out a full year before the tragedy. With it comes both
responsibility and burden. Thus, it may not surprise you to know that this is the last public statement
made on the matter in Nuntius prior to the events of 2001.

Zoller in Nuncius mentions “cities” and identifies the Eastern seaboard of the USA. The two together
suggest major cities in the region. Nevertheless, some may ask why it did not just say New York or
Washington DC etc. The answer lies in conscience. Many astrologers employ great reserve in these
matters. For just as they will (unless the circumstances are compelling) refuse to predict the death of a
native, and to refuse to identify specific places where there may be significant loss of civilian life.

There is also some confusion as to the relation between the predictions concerning terrorist attacks on US
soil and those tragic events in Oklahoma. For clarity this is addressed in the following:


Mercury Messenger

July 2007 No. 006



Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. 006 Page 7
On June 11 2001 with the execution of Timothy McVeigh it was asked if the Oklahoma bombing was the
terrorist attack that had been fore-seen and in particular if, with the execution of McVeigh, it was
regarded that the threat had subsided. To this Zoller reflected on what other astrologers had already
observed:
"As an astrologer it is not for me to feel, though of course as a man I do deeply. But this is not to say
that I must as best I can divorce myself from those feelings and only read the relevant horoscopes.”
When pressed on how soon he anticipated a "foreign" terrorist attack on US soil, the following was
concluded:
" Certainly, before the end of the year [2001] and there will be some irony in today's date [11 June 2001
– 11 September 2001 as well as 11 August 1999] an echo we might say".

This is as close as it came to stating the precise date. The terrorist activity, which had been identified,
related to religious fundamentalism and in particular had to have a direct link to Islam. Inter alia
McVeigh did not and so was discounted.

Everyone was talking about how well you were looking at the recent Gary Goldshneider seminar.
You said you just wanted to sit back and take the day in, but when it came to Gary asking for help with
chart interpretations that dormant little astrologer in you sprang to life again and you were off teaching us
all a thing or two.
We look forward to meeting up with you again at the approaching Paul Westram seminar.

At the end of this technical discussion. There was further discussion contrasting the absence of the modern planets (Uranus. 006 Page 3 . Neptune and Pluto) in Predictive astrology with their use in Psychological astrology. That judgment is the prediction. On this latter point. that a son of Bush would be in the White House. insightful remarks “out of the blue”. he was not answering after examination of the charts that raised that issue e. Thus. which is not enough for the Predictive astrologer and is not enough to make it an astrological prediction. please recall the double check system that must be employed. it is in itself not sufficient to be credited as a prediction of it.Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. reference being made to the problems of the Ptolemaic rulerships and in particular the rulerships used for the USA and the chart Robert used. While these were a private correspondence the letter was released on http://www. that having been said these same astrologers remain very strict as to what passes for an astrological prediction and what does not. it is important to ascertain if indeed Robert meant specifically what could be implied i. as it seems. That the comment was relating to mundane astrological interpretation alone means that at the time the astrologer made the comment (in April 1997) he was not exploring a specific astrological question. One further matter should be addressed here. Robert Zoller expressed the threat of the Islamic fundamentalist by way of published observations. Often they can encapsulate both complex ideas and understandings in a sentence or two. In this way.com/zollet. This should not though. The Predictive (astrological) factors which must be examined to determine such a prediction were not those that were being considering when the observation was made. the remark was passed. For it to be a prediction. former President of the British AA. However. It may only be ranked as an observation or a Consideration before Judgment – that which must be accounted for in the final judgment. and while that observation supports a later mundane event. On 12th August 1998. something that is not meant to be prediction before an event cannot then be made a prediction after it.” The significance of this answer is instructive as to the particular approach you should adopt to prediction. "Do you consider the August [1999] eclipse as the main astronomical index. which at the time was taken to be a joke – "America will have a new president when all this kicks off and he will be in the stamp of Bush. the intuitive and the deductive must be in perfect accord. At the time of the comment. Many astrologers are capable of complex calculations / delineations in their mind without always having to sit down and tease things out on paper. From what I remember the comment related to mundane astrological interpretation alone.g. In December 2000 this point was clarified with the following "No.htm . particularly at crucial times. It is rather.e. the astrologer had not examined the astrological charts needed to confirm the intuitive observation.

rectified natal charts for bin Laden and Saddam could a perfect match have been achieved so as to make concrete prediction. can be established again. It is the hallmark of the capable astrologer that they only make public predictions as a last resort. “As the next 12 months unfold we will see increased tension in those countries that fell under the path of the August 1999 eclipse but after the end of August 2001 this will take on a new twist and it will be the last 6 months of the eclipse effect that will be the worse. they remained insufficient and below the standards of integrity demanded of the astrologer who has an understanding of the real place of prediction. You will note the examination of the countries that were to fall under the 1999 eclipse path gives an indication of some the astrology behind the Considerations but only little. the charts being worked with did not allow him a perfect match between the predictive intuition and the deductive astrology. By then it had been exerting an influence for one year and still had a further 18 months of impact. it will invite the depredations of adventurers such as Osama bin Laden and Saddam. these Considerations were impressive enough to pass as prediction. A year later in the August 2000 issue of Nuntius more specific information was published about the August 1999 eclipse. those “some” who would have made the difference are those who have political or strategic clout in American society but there is still a way to go before the proper connection between them and those astrologers. For others though. At that time I couched those remarks as being non-astrological so as to play down the warning but I say again as was said in the July Nuntius if the US does not cease acting incompetently. It is substantially the same text as that published in December 1998 in the public subscription journal Nuntius 1[17]. I have also said that this threat is linked not so much to a new boldness in terrorist planning but more to US incompetence. there was still enough here to alert some others to the particulars of the problem and to the probable danger. However. It is clearly based on prediction but is a warning nonetheless. We do not yet have the precision that will qualify them as astrological prediction. A warning was given. Nonetheless. they show the continued preoccupation of the only astrologer to have publicly identified the threat of Islam to the West. Our way of life and cultural values (& our lives) are at stake. You may also like to note that Nuncius was the only publication to specifically mention bin Laden and Saddam.” Again. “From September we are entering a period of increased danger to us in the West. In the earlier July Nuntius Zoller had added “Milosevic” but by August he had been dropped. Only with accurate.” The Considerations before Judgment specific to bin Laden and Saddam could not be made into predictions because the predictive intuitive side could not be confirmed. Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. we are seeing Considerations before Judgment. who wish to have anything to do with them. In an earlier Nuntius I said that there is an increasing threat to the US citizens and this is particularly so on the Eastern sea boarder [sic]. It is true that the considerations and later the predictions could have been brought to the attention of the mainstream media but for the reasons expressed below this was not done.. This is a wake up call. as by August there was time to rectify and examine the chart of “Milosevic.” Continued on page 6 ………. The statements relating to the nuclear capability and the then impossibility of a Moslem invasion of the USA are non-astrological factual observations. 006 Page 4 . In simple terms. This is not surprising. These Considerations before Judgment were only concerned with the pro-active stance of the USA. 006 years now. For some.Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. Ofcourse. which lead to the December 1998 bombing of Iraq and the consequences of that action.

Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. I am not looking at any other forms of terrorism though also anticipate others. From what you have read so far.. Firstly. The future is to be laid out a full year before the tragedy. and this is a matter of great concern within the astrological community of America. To see knaves steal it before your very eyes is one thing. The greatest period of danger is in September 2001. “I again draw attention to the increasing threat of Islamic terrorism and that it will be felt on the US mainland. There is also some confusion as to the relation between the predictions concerning terrorist attacks on US soil and those tragic events in Oklahoma. For just as they will (unless the circumstances are compelling) refuse to predict the death of a native. You should also note the time frame – this is your clue as to which charts you should be looking at. Shocking not because of the accuracy of the observations and predictions but because of the clarity with which they show such tremendous despair. the result being that they are reluctant in a significant number of cases. For clarity this is addressed in the following: Mercury Messenger July 2007 No. Those of you who read all the observations and predictions in continuum will also be alerted to other factors such as the use of nuclear weapons etc – but remember when you look at the charts in question be sure that you do not approach them with a mind full of possibilities – firstly read the horoscope and nothing else. some may ask why it did not just say New York or Washington DC etc. first mentioned as a potential menace by Robert in August 1998. many scholars have fallen prey to those who plagiarise their work.” This is the most shocking of all that has been published thus far. I am looking at terrorism that is rooted in Islamic fundamentalism and directed at everyday citizens going about their daily business in our own cities. to release much of the astrological analysis that underlies their work. Zoller in Nuncius mentions “cities” and identifies the Eastern seaboard of the USA.continued from Page 4 ………………. It is relating what results from the perfect match – the coming together of the predictive intuition and the deductive astrology. The reasons for these omissions should be made clear. Now let us look at the September 2000 issue of Nuntius. Many astrologers employ great reserve in these matters. to see them deform it is quite another as it works against astrology – and it is that which must be guarded against “After September 2001 when the first big crisis will have hit the US we will never be the same again. Our culture and way of life and lives are at risk.. With it comes both responsibility and burden. The answer lies in conscience. we have had our wake up call.” Here we have prediction interlaced with a warning. This is a perennial problem. You will also notice another reference to China. This is the Sino/Islamic alliance. it may not surprise you to know that this is the last public statement made on the matter in Nuntius prior to the events of 2001. For the third time I say this. 006 Zoller Predictions …. The destruction and loss of life will shock us all. The two together suggest major cities in the region. you should understand instantly the use of the words “we can expect…” as you should “time to strike”. 006 Page 6 . By the following February 2002 the real game plan will have become obvious to us and though it may not then be part of public consciousness we can expect to see our external enemies expand as they are supported by China though they will remain hidden from view until it is time to strike. Nevertheless. Thus. I repeat my warning now for the third time that unless the US remains vigilante [sic] it will be caught unprepared and will be rocked to its very core. It will be an act of war but unlike any other in our history. and to refuse to identify specific places where there may be significant loss of civilian life. The additional astrological factors responsible for this statement are deliberately omitted.
