God, Line One.

Lightning strikes St. Peter’s Basilica, one of the holiest Catholic churches, hours after Benedict XVI’s shock announcement.

He is the first Pope in 600 years to resign

Jupiter went direct 2 weeks ago bringing changes with it – – > from all the internal thinking done while in Rx in Gemini.

Quickie astro:
House of Pisces (sensitivity, spirituality) is jam packed Moon,Mercury, Mars, Neptune,Chiron in square (internal tension) to Jupiter (organized religion/ Popes) in Gemini (multi-tasking, communicating).

Pisces can indicate suffering, Jupiter is overdoing it – the daily work/ communication grind that is a Pope’s duty is wearing him thin, so he resigns.

This comes as a shock to a millions – that is the Uranus (separation) square Pluto (in Capricorn, or work) bit.

Note: Lightning is Uranus ruled.
God calling ..?… that’s just weird.
