End of Arab Resurgence, Pluto enters Capricorn

The Collapse of the Mar'ib Dam and the Origin of the Arabs

The Mar'ib Dam collapsed when Pluto was in the early degrees of Capricoorn ending a period of relative Arab supremacy worldwide which takes place cyclically when Pluto is in Sagittarius. History will repeat itself beginning November. We just don't know how for sure.
The article on arabiafelix describes this ancient marvel and its demise...

"Land of the Two Paradises, Ardh al-Jannatayn, is how the ancients described the capital of the Kingdom of Sheba in southwest Arabia. The inhabitants built irrigation structures here as early as the 3rd millennium BC, but the great Marib dam, large sections of which are still visible today, was by far the largest and most impressive.

"... The inhabitants [also] grew wheat, millet, barley, sorghum, grapes, date palms, vegetables, pulses, and fruits, the abundance of water allowing two crops per year.

" ... sometime in the political and economic chaos of the late 6th century AD, the dam ruptured, never to be repaired. Marib’s once prosperous inhabitants disappeared, abandoning the land to nomads in search of pasture for their livestock.

"Arab legend has it that the collapse of the Marib dam sparked a massive emigration from the area, what is today part of Yemen, to all corners of the Arabian Peninsula and beyond. ..."
