Battle of Gaugamela (October 1, 331 BC)
This is an historic battle for many reasons, but the most obvious is that a Macedonian army defeated the Persians in their own back yard. And the Persians under Darius III had the superior force.
Evidently, there had been a lunar eclipse the day before this battle (which is how historians know what the date was, exactly). This should have been a clue that a new day had dawned. And the Macedonian army had overslept, while the Persian army had been up all night. One side wasn’t battle ready until noon, while the other side was already battle weary, It doesn’t take a genius to see that something would have to give.
Here’s the battle chart:
The Yod pointing at the (New) Moon is the battle result being telegraphed at the start. Saturn and Pluto are the inconjuncts to the Moon. Uranus is opposite the Moon and about halfway between the other two planets. The king, Darius III, is represented by the Sun, which has already been eclipsed, by this time of the day. The Sun is conjunct Mars but the God of War will be useless for the Persian king. He’d already missed his chance.
