On July 10, 2007 – the day Mercury went stationary direct in Cancer* – Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told the Chicago Tribune that he had a “gut feeling” there may be a terrorist attack here in the U.S. this summer. Mercury, the planet representing communication, and Cancer, a cardinal (action-oriented) water (intuitive) sign, is all about thinking through feeling. The sign Cancer rules the breasts and stomach (“the gut”). Its foremost concern is emotional and physical security. When a planet is stationary, its energies are enhanced, so it’s important to take note of the information communicated last week. As Mercury began moving forward, Chertoff, appeared to be backing away from his earlier comments.
The National Intelligence Estimate released its report today (July 17), “The Terrorist Threat to the U.S. Homeland”, which stated that the “U.S. currently is in a heightened threat environment.” My June 16, 2007 post on The Summer Solstice (see Predictions or Commentary section) stated the probability of an attack or attempted attack in the USA. The Solstice period is June 21- September 23, 2007. If an attack occurs, it will not be near the magnitude of September 11, 2001. The most likely time is late August to mid-September which is between two eclipses that affect the USA as well as other world charts. Other potential times of geopolitical unrest are around July 23-25, July 27, July 31, Aug 2, 6-7, Aug 10, Aug 20, Aug 28, Sep 3, 5, 7, 11, 13.
