The Pearl Harbor Attack

In the months before the Pearl Harbor attack, the war was raging in Europe.  Britain was desperately trying to hinder the advances of Germany and Italy.  And Japan was attacking the weak and defenseless in Asia.  The US was in no position to go to war.  The military was inadequate and poorly equipped.  Pacifist thinking was rampant, and Congress was in no mood to support a war.  President Roosevelt had made promises to aid France and Great Britain that he could not honor.

In an attempt to relieve the pressure on Britain's shipping lanes under threat from the Japanese, US Secretary of State Cordell Hull engaged Japan in peace negotiations.  The negotiations were used by Japan as a cover for war preparations.  On November 26, 1941, Secretary of State Hull presented Japan with a peace proposal that demanded that Japan withdraw from China and Indochina.  He knew this would be the end of diplomacy.  It drove the Japanese to prepare to attack the US.  On November 29, 1941, the Japanese Imperial Conference decided to attack the US because diplomacy had failed.  On December 6, President Roosevelt sent a letter to Japanese Emperor Hirohito in a last attempt to avoid war.

The President and diplomats in Washington knew the war was on, but the US military did not know where it would begin.  There assumptions and normal bureaucratic bungling set the stage for the unthinkable disaster.  The first wave of Japanese planes struck Pearl harbor from the northwest at 7:55 AM on Sunday, December 7, 1941, Day 341, which was Day 342 Japanese time.  Then a second wave  struck from the northeast at 9:00 AM.  The Japanese sunk 18 of the 96 ships in the harbor, including the USS Arizona and Oklahoma.  The total killed included 2335 US servicemen and 68 civilians (2403 total), with 1102 in the USS Arizona.  There were 1178 injured.  Of 394 aircraft, 188 were destroyed and 159 damaged.

Star Chart

Pearl HarborThe Star Chart at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack contains a Mystic Rectangle and two Kites pointed at each other to represent the attack.  Since a Kite can symbolize a bird on the wing bearing the sign of the cross, the Kites corresponded to the Japanese airplanes used for the attack.  The Mystic Rectangle symbolizes a field, an airfield, and Client Nation USA.  It also symbolizes the US ships being bombed, such as the USS Arizona, since it was aligned with the Ascendant sign of Sagittarius, for a raiding band.  Sagittarius corresponds to Arizona on the Zodiac Map.

The Sun sign was Scorpius, the sign of Satan disguised as an angel of light.  The Moon sign was Cancer, for the security of a group.  It was a major security failure for the US.  The Descendant sign was Gemini, for the double blessing of Israel.  Israel was going down in the Holocaust.  The breakdown in diplomacy that led to the attack was even shown by the Mediator and God of the Covenants Planets in conjunction on the cusp of Taurus and Aries.  The planets symbolized success through a mediator and a diplomat.

There were three pairs of planets in the chart, a sign of the Flood, the counterpart of the Holocaust in terms of a horrible Judgment.  One comes from water, and the other from fire.  The three pairs of planets also signified the Axis powers, German, Italy, and Japan, who signed the Tripartite Pact September 27, 1940 in Berlin.  The Star Chart over Berlin that day contained three groups of three planets.  Refer to The Tripartite Pact for a more complete explanation of the Axis powers and the correlation to the Evil King, Prostitute of Babylon, and child.

Mystic Rectangle

The Mystic Rectangle symbolizes a field, the land, and Client Nation USA.  It can also symbolize airfields and even ships.  In this chart it could symbolize Client Nation USA as well as Ford Island Naval Air Station in the center of Pearl Harbor.  And it could symbolize the other airfields and ships that were bombed at Pearl Harbor.1  Since it was aligned with the Ascendant in Sagittarius, it could symbolize the USS Arizona, which was sunk and contributed to the heaviest casualties.  Arizona corresponds to Sagittarius on the Zodiac Map.

The Mystic Rectangle represents two cross arms of opposition that must be brought into balance.  In this chart, one of the cross arms had the Almighty God Planet in Taurus in opposition to the Savior Planet in Scorpius.  The planets in opposition symbolized the ruler of the world over against Satan's attack on the believer.  Satan was trying to rule the world by attacking US servicemen, who were also believers.  The other cross arm had the Last Adam Planet in Cancer in opposition to the Morning Star in Capricornus.  This was the opposition of scourging to a Gentile military leader.  The US was receiving scourging punishment from a Gentile military leader.  Japanese Fleet Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who directed the Pearl Harbor attack, was one of the Gentile military leaders of the Axis powers.


The Sun was in Scorpius along with the Savior Planet nearby.  The Sun was the focus of one Kite and the Savior Planet was the top of the other Kite.  The Sun in Scorpius symbolizes Satan disguised as an angel of light.  It was Satan who orchestrated the entire World War in both Europe and Asia, and Satan inspired the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  The Japanese flag, with the rising Sun, symbolized Satan disguised as an angel of light.  Satan was out to conquer the world and usher in a false millennium apart from fulfilling the unconditional covenants to Israel.  Client Nation USA stood in the way, and it had to be conquered.

The Savior Planet in Scorpius symbolized Satan's attack on the believer.  The US, as the Client Nation to God, was the home of the Church on Earth.  Most of the US military personnel at Pearl Harbor were Christians.  Satan inspired their destruction.

The focus of the green Kite was the Mediator Planet in Taurus, the sign of success through a mediator.  And the God of the Covenants Planet in conjunction with the Mediator Planet on the cusp of Aries, was the symbol of a diplomat.  Japan was engaged in peace talks with the US as a cover for their war planning.  And the US was engaging Japan in diplomacy to help Great Britain keep the sea lanes open.  The US also forced Japan's hand in the peace talks, which drove Japan to attack.  All this may not sound like success, but Japan was very successful in the attack.  And the hand of the US was forced to enter the War.

To be more blunt, the US should have entered the war earlier, but the US Congress had no stomach for a preemptive war.  When a madman begins shooting people, he should be stopped immediately.  Waiting until he comes to your doorstep is absurd.  To be even more blunt, the pacifist thinking in this country was a result of lack of salt from apostate Christians.

Midheaven Virgo

Midheaven, along with the Redeemer Planet, was in Virgo, the Virgin and symbol of virgin Israel.  The Redeemer Planet in Virgo symbolized the redeemer of virgin Israel.

She has fallen!
She will not rise again,
The virgin Israel.
She lies forsaken on her land;
There is none to raise her up. (Amos 5:2)
Midheaven symbolized the major issue, which was the Holocaust of Israel.  The Redeemer Planet was at the end of he cross arm of the green Kite.  At the other end of the cross arm was the Morning Star in Capricornus, the sign of a Gentile military leader.  Hitler's Gentile military leaders were out to destroy Israel (the Jews).


There were two planets in Cancer, the Last Adam and the Moon.  The Last Adam in Cancer symbolizes scourging, and the Moon symbolizes security for a group, or congregation, like the congregation of Israel.  The pair of planets in Cancer symbolized the Axis nation of Italy, which was associated with the Prostitute of Babylon.


The Red Planet in Pisces symbolized bloody believers.  The Red Planet was at the end of the cross arm of the violet Kite opposite the Last Adam Planet in Taurus.
