Elizabeth Warren Reshapes The Democratic Party (video) plus her personality blend

#ElizabethWarren #2016 #Senate

Here's Rachel Maddow interviewing Senator Warren in November 2013 and a few notes on the senator's natal planets and birth data including her Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus personality blend and her prominent personality-describing conjunction of Sun and Uranus.

Who was Paid What to Fast Track TPA? video - Thom Hartmann

TPA #TPP #FastTrack #FreeTradeDeals #USCongress #ThomHartmann

Well, America's natal Jupiter (the banker; the corporatist; the politician) of 1776 is at '6 Cancer' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests" and feather these pocket-liners do.

Source: America's traditional horoscope of the Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776, the date celebrated as Independence Day as recommended by the Founding Fathers, and of course you know that John Adams and Thomas Jefferson expired on the same day: July 4, 1826 with Sun conjunct goddess star, Sirius, which was probably their aim for their promoting that particular day as our nation's day of birth. So because of precession, every time we honor July 4th we are simultaneously honoring (aka, worshiping) Sirius-Isis.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: FIFA and the World Cup (HBO)

#FIFA #WorldCup #Soccer #Football #Corruption #JohnOliver #LastWeekTonight #HBO

By now you've heard of yesterday's "shocking" arrests and indictments of several FIFA officials led out of a fancy Zurich hotel in handcuffs. A notable exception to the perp walk is head fraudster Sepp Blatter who will put the best possible spin on the situation.

The uncovering of FIFA corruption, bribery, and fraud is a good example of why I gave up watching or caring about sports years ago. Name one sport that hasn't been corrupted by gangsters and racketeers. Please.

Personalities Blends of Franklin, Washington, Paine, and Jefferson

In Astrology, natal Sun (conscious) and Moon (unconscious) combinations provide details concerning a native's personality blend so it may be interesting to consider the Sun-Moon blends of four Founding Fathers: Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Thomas Jefferson in honor of Memorial Day 2015. After all, there might have been no American Revolution--our nation's First Cause for War--without their personal involvement in the founding of America.

Here they are in chronological order of birth; all natal data but Paine's have Rodden Ratings of AA. Paine's hour of birth has been rectified and both times are given; however, since the Moon remained in Gemini the entire day of Paine's birth, we may confidently use his natal Sun-Moon blend with the rest.

The combined elements of the founding foursome show Franklin and Washington with practical Earth and Water blends (mud!), Jefferson with a high-flying, inspired Double Fire mix, and Paine possessing a Double Air (cerebral) blend. We may surmise that among these personalities, Franklin and Washington were on some practical level 'on the same page' while Paine and Jefferson had their uplifting writing talents in common. And naturally, an Air-Air type such as author Paine would have had a difficult if not impossible task turning his revolutionary ideas into reality without the pragmatism of men such as Franklin and Washington and the supportive creative force of Thomas Jefferson.

(Most of the following information is gleaned from Sun Sign-Moon Sign by Charles and Suzi Harvey; their 'Images for Integration' may be useful for comparison along with a quote from each fellow and, in parentheses, a few examples of others who were born under the same Sun-Moon blends. All natal data from historical, baptismal, or Bible records.)

Benjamin Franklin January 17, 1706 10:30 am LMT Boston, Massachusetts: Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces (Earth-Water): scientist and poet; pragmatist and dreamer; humanitarian and organizer; tough and tender; dependable but private; dutiful but a softy; insightful and ambitious; promoter of moral precepts (if not a follower); fear of the unknown; willing to bend the truth to fit a thesis; can bring order out of chaos (perfect for the era and the founding of their Utopian new order).

Images for Integration: "A wine collector uncorks a rare vintage to celebrate a success...A child builds a sandcastle of reinforced concrete...Bilbo in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings...Paul Cezanne's Bathers in a Landscape (Ben preferred nudity!)

(Paul Cezanne, J.R.R. Tolkien, J. Edgar Hoover, Elvis Presley.)

"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of." - Benjamin Franklin.

George Washington February 22, 1732 10:00 am LMT Colonial Beach, Virginia: Sun Pisces-Moon Capricorn (Water-Earth): practical visionary; paternal; serious and self-reflective; deep sense of duty and of justice; humane and charitable; valued a sense of community and family; moralistic and judgmental; great organizer; did not suffer fools gladly; a reserved romantic (and quite busy in the romantic realm, I've heard--probably sterile from childhood illnesses); secretive and defensive.

Images for Integration: An old freighter chugs toward the port, bringing in the goods...A famous actress leaves her estate to the Actors' Pension Fund.

(Samuel Pepys, Percival Lowell, Anais Nin, Philip Roth.)

"Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company." - George Washington

Thomas Paine February 9, 1737 11:30 am LMT, or rectified to 10:42:30 am (Starkman) Thetford, England: Sun Aquarius-Moon Gemini (Air-Air): a politically progressive 'New Age' thinker, idealist, and promoter determined to 'change the world'; possessed of a strong social conscience; a gift for lateral thinking; a wit and philosopher; a 'way with words'; a 'bright butterfly' flitting to the next new project or idea; friendly, charming, and sociable; a peacemaker, negotiator, natural communicator, and 'networker' who could strike up a conversation with anyone; unsentimental; tendency to squander talents and scatter energies; flexible yet stubborn; Achilles heel? close intimacy with others and the emotional realm.

Images for Integration: A white blackbird charms the garden with its song...A child in a balloon drifts over the city reporting back by portable phone on all below.

(Barack Obama and Saul Alinsky (I know!), Proclus, Jack Benny, Joseph Wambaugh, Elihu Root.)

"The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately." - Thomas Paine

Thomas Jefferson April 13, 1743 1:53 am LMT Shadwell, Virginia: Sun Aries-Moon Sagittarius (Fire-Fire): a 'BIG personality'; a visionary (a trait shared with the mystical Washington); a futurist; highly intuitive; a grandiose philosopher; focused on large ideas; wrapped up in ideologies; impatient and highly strung; prone to exaggeration; a daredevil explorer and adventurer; emphatic; talkative (yet a whisperer who stuttered--not much on public speaking); friendly and fun-loving; vital and independent; promoter of pet causes; intensely honorable; able to inspire others to action; in love with love and life; exuberant; emotionally ardent; practical duties tended to weigh down the spirit; contagious optimism; inventive but with a need for more practicality; impatient with the limitations of the material world (always in debt); childlike emotions.

One Image for Integration: A child shoots an arrow towards the enchanted castle in the distance as he follows the road less traveled.

(Samuel Beckett, Robert Fludd, Erich Fromm, Gus Grissom, Thomas Hobbes, Garry Kasparov, Ravi Shankar, Vincent Van Gogh.)

Let's close with a few words from Thomas Jefferson, words that a majority of New Millennium-Global Government politicians seem incapable of taking to heart--or, they consider other priorities to be much more important than those of the American people as they make a mockery of the government that was set up by the founders:

"When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property."

Here's some timely info concerning George Washington posted yesterday to mark his Secondary Progressed Full Moon on June 1, 2015.

June 1, 2015: George Washington's Progressed Full Moon!

Are Our American Hopes and Dreams Still 'Enshrined' in George Washington?

by Jude Cowell

May 25, 2015: Lately I've been messing around with Historical Horoscopes as I tend to do whenever the chance arises and couldn't fail to notice that first (official) President George Washington has a Secondary Progressed (SP) Full Moon upcoming--on June 1, 2015 @10Gem03! Opposite of course is his SP Sun @10Sag03 which conjoins SP Uranus (10Sag27), inventive planet of revolution, revolt, disruption, and genius. Sun conjunct Uranus denotes an original, unique, outstanding personality of genius and innovation--and a rebel or maverick, of course.

Would you like to see his current SP Full Moon horoscope? Here it is, set for Colonial Beach, Virginia, his place of birth. Relocating the SP chart only makes one degree of difference to the ASC-Desc axis and gives him a 12Cap56 ASC-->Sabian Symbol "13Cap" = "A Fire Worshiper" which may also be used for karmic information as the prior degree of the Full Moon Ascendant, his nibs himself:

Enlarge the image to read a few notes penned on (messily, as usual) and read on, if you wish. I consider Washington's current progressions to be the evolution of his society's opinion of him as president and as all that he has been to our nation or has been made to seem. I refer to Mason Locke Weems, aka, Parson Weems, who may be most responsible for George Washington's near-mythical status in American culture and the 'cult of personality' with which we garnish him and all subsequent presidents (as long as they don't become too tarnished by their own sorriness!) Read The Fable of George Washington and the Cherry Tree from Weems' The Life of Washington, written shortly after Washington's death in December 1799.

So how has Washington evolved from his birth in 1732 to June 1, 2015, and what is a Secondary Progressed Full Moon anyway?

The SP Full Moon is a culmination phase of fulfillment which issues from a natal horoscope and provides details on how an individual's birth potential has changed through the years to whatever date is specified. Although George is long passed away, his natal planets of February 22, 1732 continue to be contacted by transits and progressions; even planetary returns to natal degree can be significant.

Certainly the more prominent the figure and imposing the natal horoscope, the more significant may be changes to the related charts and a character's continued influence. Here, we see a significant, prominent man of his era who remains so in 2015 as the first archetype of The Leader of the United States of America and there are several reasons for his high status which I have discussed in previous posts and will not go into now. And if you seek Freemason references, check the Sabian Symbol of SP Pluto for '20 Libra' which hints at more occult information. Also, scroll to the sidebar Search field and type in his name for more articles on such topics.

Obviously, as America's Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, we continue to honor his vast contribution--the hardships he faced and the sacrifices made. And note that the Sabian Symbol for '1 Sag"..."A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire"...now rests on his SP 11th cusp @00Sag30 in this SP Full Moon chart denoting a time of harvest and reward and by this I refer to those who now wear Washington's mantle of power--and those hiding behind it.

Now chart-ruler Saturn (ASC 13Cap28: George is still 'the boss' of our collective psyche!)--makes a few aspects to other SP planets in the chart as you see and is the Thales Planet of the Sun-Moon opposition, the Full Moon via a sextile to the Moon and a trine to the Sun (listed on the chart, lower left.) Curiously, Saturn (Rx--no longer with us?) is positioned at 10Ari10 so we have a 'saving grace' provided by Thales Saturn at '11Aries'..."The President of the Country." This may refer to President Obama and/or to several other possibilities but for the sake of brevity I'll leave them for you to consider, if you may (contact: judecowell at gmail dot com to discuss.)

Notably, it is the 5/11 axis of Self Will and Creative Pursuits in focus here including Washington's SP Nodal axis of Future Direction. And there is SP Mercury @17Sag16, planet of Thoughts, Communications, and Plans, joining the Groups and Associations duo of Sun-Uranus. Also in focus is the 3/9 axis of Philosophy, Religion, Foreign Lands, and the Lower-Higher Mind with a power trio that relates to wealth in 9th house: Jupiter @00Sco37, Venus @25Lib30, and Pluto @19Lib47. This planetary trio may signify foreign donors and the powers controlling the US government from abroad (always the case--Washington was a central bank 'fan' with Hamilton) and one suspicion is The City of London, the UK's financial sector.

Opposite in 3rd house is 'Presidential' Saturn, authoritative planet of lawmakers, managers and father figures. SP Cupido, astrological signature of The Family, The Syndicate, and Corporatism, sits directly upon the IC, the Ending Point of all horoscopes which identifies The Drain. And obviously on a financial level, it would be worthwhile to ferret out the precise date and the transits thereof when SP Jupiter (which 'began' at a natal position of 8Lib37 Rx in natal 6th house) entered the Money and Big Business sign of Scorpio but that's beyond the scope of this post (though SP planets changing signs is significant.)

How interesting that a man gone since 1799 has SP Mars in 1st house! Now evolved into Aquarius--an independent, reformist sign for activist Mars, the warrior--natal Mars began in brooding, sexy, occult-loving Scorpio (23:13) in George's 7th house of Partnerships and Open Enemies. And at birth in 1732, a powerful midpoint conjoined his natal Mars--Pluto-NN, the 'tiger by the tail' pair. A midpoint picture thus formed indicating potentials for violence, brutality, making others amenable to one's wishes, and/or the misfortune to be placed in someone else's hand and power (Ebertin). Nowadays, SP Mars is not apex of any midpoint that I can find but there are others in the SP Full Moon chart to consider which may affect our society's current circumstances:

Uranus-NN (political reformers; shared upsets) = Sun: becoming upset; inclination to violence even at the slightest cause (!)

Sun-Mars (activities; vigor; soldiers; surgeons; intellectual fighters) = ASC: cooperative teamwork; total devotion to a cause.

Mars-Uranus (fighters for freedom; effort; interventions) = ASC: acts of violence (tragically we have plenty of those--jc); upsetting events; accidents; arrests (ditto to all.)

Mars-NN (collaboration; disputes) = ASC: energetic cooperation; family ties; good fellowship.

Mars-Pluto (superhuman power; force; brutality; objectives obtained by ruthlessness; people disabled by war) = Mercury: a desire to realize fanatical plans; presence of mind; excessive nervous irritation.

In America, the continued popularity of Founder George Washington as a national figure and important historical personage may be seen in part by Venus-MC (love; affection; attachment; vanity; conceit) = Jupiter.

The last SP factor I intend to discuss with you on the occasion of this major turning point for President George Washington--unaware of it though he be and possibly marking a limit to his or our global reach upon the world stage--is the chart's planetary pattern called a Locomotive with its lead planet (engine), Pluto.

As you know, Locomotive patterns indicate genius and a determined drive toward success of the sort found in executive positions--and its power tends to overshadow a person's flaws until 'absolute perfection' seems to be the case. And though it's true that this is a progressed Locomotive, I suspect that it's our current crop of Washington politicians who benefit from this pattern which actually shows up in Washington's natal horoscope as a Bucket pattern, a Bowl with a 'handle' planet. In George's natal chart, the handle planet that carries the rest of the planets is his mystical Neptune @14Gem40 Rx in the 1st house of Self. This resonates with Washington's natal Sun in mystical Pisces and his early joining of secret societies such as the Freemasons, an organization he adhered to all his life. He swore his presidential oath upon a Masonic Bible, in fact, then leaned down and kissed it (a Masonic ritual). You've seen images of him dressed in his fancy Masonic apron, right?

That his worldly endeavors and aims were aided by his 'brethren' seems to me a given for he was actually chosen to lead them into creating this nation. But nowadays, there's that SP Locomotive with powerful, plutocratic Pluto as the engine chugging along in the 9th house of Foreigners and Philosophy (the Utopian 'New Atlantis'.) Perhaps a consideration of each planet's sign is helpful here since in our memories we have not experienced Neptune in Gemini and it's been a while since Pluto crept through Libra:

In Gemini, natal Neptune echoes his tendencies toward mysticism and occult studies, visions, fantasies, illusions, not being what he seems (he was ambitious for power), and the placement gave him a love of nature and a talent for inspired communications (his use of spying comes under such guise!) Now in Libra, SP Pluto provides extraordinary powers of assertion within the environment, the family, and the public (assertions aimed at us), plus, manifestations of genius and celebrities who benefit or harm humanity.

Now just a bit about the SP Full Moon blend of conscious-unconscious energies as detailed by Charles and Suzi Harvey (Sun Sign-Moon Sign). This is a Fire-Air 'live wire' combo, full of ideas but with a potential for bombast, bluster, and rhetoric which may be eloquent but lasts too long. Sun Sag-Moon Gemini denotes clarity of thought, cold logic, and a wise sage with a love of learning. This blend tends toward over-analysis and rationalization in an attempt to avoid emotions--of self and of others. (Can you imagine the 'discomfort' of certain survival-of-the-fittest politicians having their way--totally cutting granny's food stamps and those of her grandchildren and then having to hear their anguished weeping and watch them starving on the streets of America?)

The Sun Sag-Moon Gem blend is shared natally by some interesting characters such as New-Ager Benjamine Creme, Green Party founder Petra Kelly, Anna Freud, Francisco Franco, Persia's Akbar the Great, and Noel Coward who informs us that, "I've over-educated myself in all the things I shouldn't have known at all." And you may find the blend's Image for Integration somewhat curious considering the conservative anti-brother's-keeper agenda knocking at our societal door:

"Robin Hood as a young boy plays truant from school to go to his archery lesson, but ends up teaching his card tricks to his master." The 'robbing from the rich to give to the poor' fellow!

Well, that's all I care to say for now about George Washington's SP Full Moon of June 1, 2015 which times the limit of his and perhaps Washington DC's reach in the outer world. Perhaps when June 1st arrives-- a date which also times the potential sunseting of section 215 of the so-called US Patriot Act, unconstitutional as it is-- you'll give a small thought, fond or otherwise, to our first president and his SP Pluto, conjunct Spica (the Washington Monument) and Arcturus (the White House) as it chugs our nation forward toward whatever ultimate goal our Founding Father and his colleagues had in mind for this, our 'New Rome'.

Harry Truman's NSA and Pluto's Covert Actions

Today as I consider the natal horoscope of the National Intelligence Agency (NSA) and its draconian collection of Americans' phone call and email data along with the natal chart of President Harry Truman, I think back to a few snippets that were posted here in October 2010, the gist of which actually concerns all three branches of surveillance and covert actions in the USA: the CIA, the FBI, and the NSA:

Posted: 15 Oct 2010 05:33 PM PDT

(GlobalResearch) – By assigning covert action roles to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), it is as if the White House and Congress had legitimized the Ku Klux Klan to operate globally. That’s because the CIA today resembles nothing so much as the “Invisible Empire” of the KKK that once spread terror across the South and Midwest. Fiery crosses aside, this is what the CIA is doing globally.

{}

Allowing it to operate in secret literally gives the CIA the mythical Ring of Gyges. In Plato’s Republic, the owner of the ring had the power to become invisible at will. As Wikipedia puts it, Plato “discusses whether a typical person would be moral if he did not have to fear the consequences of his actions.” The ancient Greeks made the argument, Wikipedia says, that “No man would keep his hands off what was not his own when he could safely take what he liked out of the market, go into houses and lie with any one at his pleasure, kill or release from prison whom he would, and in all respects be like a god among men.” The CIA, like Hitler’s Gestapo and Stalin’s NKVD before it, has provided modern man the answer to this question. Its actions illuminate why all criminal entities, from rapists and bank robbers, to Ponzi scheme swindlers and murderers, cloak themselves in secrecy.

There are innumerable examples of how American presidents have authorized criminal acts without public discussion that the preponderant majority of Americans would find reprehensible. Example: it was President Lyndon Johnson who ordered the CIA to meddle in Chile’s election to help Eduardo Frei become president. If they had known, U.S. taxpayers might have objected to such a use of their hard-earned money to influence the outcome of another country’s elections. But the public is rarely let in on such illegal foreign policy decisions.

A Few Astro-Notes Concerning the NSA and Its Father, Harry Truman

The NSA formed when one of our Freemason Presidents, Harry Truman, signed a memorandum on October 24, 1952 at 10:45 am EST Washington DC; ASC 22Sag35, MC 28Sco55; 8th house Sun 1Sco10, Moon 11Cap37 conjunct 12th cusp of Politics, Karma, Self-Undoing, and Secret Enemies. Midpoint: Sun-Saturn = Neptune: inner peculiarities; mental, emotional, physical crises. Pluto 23Leo02 squared Harry Truman's natal Sun (18Tau39) denoting possible coercion and manipulation via threats to his power position and influence. Although, as a high ranking Freemason, our 33rd president may have been happily in cahoots with the formation of such an agency for the sake of the eventual implementation of Global Government. Leo and Taurus are, after all, Fixed signs of rigidity.

Plus, we must note that Truman was born under a Mercury-Pluto conjunction in very early Gemini, ruled by Mercury, planet of the senses such as sight and hearing. This resonates with America's natal Mercury-Pluto opposition of total surveillance and dealing with, hiding, and wielding secrets. Curiously, considering the current (staged!) debate on the Patriot Act, the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse @00Gem conjoined Truman's Pluto (00:24) and Mercury (1Gem16 Rx, both in natal 8th house of the Occult, Transformation, Corporatism, and Death--Harry did drop the first nuclear bomb though it had already been sanctioned by FDR) in the 14 South Series contains Mercury-Pluto themes of success once obsessive ideas are finally accepted (Brady). Not by me--I don't accept them. Do you? Let it sunset!

The 14S eclipse of 2012 was a major turning point for global society and manifested upon the sensitive degree of a Fixed Star in the constellation Pleiades, Alcyone (keywords: something to cry about and mystical but judgmental). Note: scroll a bit and type 'Eclipses' into the sidebar Search field and you'll find the May 20, 2012 horoscope set for Washington DC on the list.

Now at Truman's NSA signing, another transit relating to ego and goals of Truman's Sun is that transit Jupiter was Rx and in process of conjoining his natal Sun, a time of overconfidence when a culmination of something begun about 12 years before is being reached--in or around 1940 for Truman; this endeavor needed to be either elevated to a higher level or discontinued at that time (1952). A greater attainment of knowledge (ex: spying) is a major part of this Sun-Jupiter picture. Additionally, Jupiter nears Truman's natal Neptune (20Tau41--a Sun-Neptune conjunction for hiding-in-plain-sight-yet-veiled Harry) indicating a time of pretense, illusion, delusion, paranoia, and fanaticism. Sounds exactly like Washington DC in 2015, doesn't it?!

Since the attacks of 9/11/01, we've watched as the agency's anti-constitutional nature has grown and expanded since 1952 and most people agree that the NSA's dependence upon Pluto's cloak of invisibility has been undemocratic from the start.

As for the (June 1, 2015 midnight) sunset provision within the US Patriot Act (section 215), an Act that purports to legalize the massive data collection of US citizens' communications for no logical reason, transit Pluto remains in the neighborhood of the NSA's natal Moon in Capricorn bringing potentials for a deeper transformation through publicity and public scrutiny than the agency is comfortable with, intense turmoil within its own ranks and on Capitol Hill (thanks to Senators Rand Paul's and Ron Wyden's objections to the NSA's massive data collection aimed at innocent Americans as the agency misses finding real needles in real-problem haystacks because of an obsession with knowing it all and using personal info against us later), and their over-zealousness which may cause loss of at least some of their power and control--it is to be hoped for the sake of our right to privacy.

Not that they won't continue surveillance of the innocent under another guise...

Secret-Government related: The American Deep State (contains video)--and all of these topics cast a glaring spotlight upon America's 1776 Saturn in Libra and Neptune in Virgo, the signature of our Founding Fathers' secret/invisible/covert (Neptune) government (Saturn) with our natal out-of-bounds Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn grasping hidden reins of control and manipulation from the beginning of our nation's founding and before.

Still No Justice months after Tamir Rice was murdered by Cleveland Police - video

'Delayed Justice' Reflects America's Retrograde Mars

All violent tragedies and abuses of justice are tremendously saddening but the outrageous victimization of a 12-year-old boy at play is especially difficult for my Pisces Moon and brings up multiple feelings about how America's natal Mars in Gemini--the sign of young people--turned retrograde in Libra in 2006 and will remain so for decades--80 years in total. So far, the distorted, regressive condition of US Mars is very plainly seen through events and in what news broadcasts choose to show us.

For among other things, Mars rules such people as police officers, soldiers, and males in general between the ages of 25 and 35, give or take a year or two. So astrological Mars, planet of energy, action, and motivation is now retrograde (Rx) in the US chart and collective psyche and turns its energy which is often testosterone-laden and aggressive--inward and against the American people in a myriad of ways on the physical plane when we should be re-viewing past (Rx) actions and motivations (Mars) in order to repair and improve our society rather than using regressive methods to act out fantasies and delusions of racial superiority.

And if we simply accept the primal violence (Pluto-Chiron) favored and employed by plutocrats and bureaucrats (who imagine themselves 'above' us), We the People will one day be repentant that we didn't bother to repair such conditions before the ill effects of the ruling class' oppressive tendencies became even more widespread as the 'police state' became bolder.

That's one American's opinion, at least.

Rand Paul Filibustering Renewal of Patriot Act 5.20.2015 - video

Last evening at 11:48 pm EDT with *Pluto in Capricorn rising, Senator Rand Paul completed his performance of something approximating a 'filibuster' on the Senate floor protesting the renewal of the draconian US Patriot Act part of which can sunset away at the end of May if Congress does what it does best, nothing.

As Senator Paul begins to speak we hear his communicative Gemini Moon expressing along side his governmental Capricorn Sun of goals and ego. The Sabian Symbol of the Sun at a critical 29th degree during his performance is (rounding up) '30 Taurus' = "A Peacock Parading on an Ancient Lawn" which you may take however you think is most appropriate for describing the aims of a 2016 presidential candidate.

Here are a few more astro-notes concerning the natal planets and Sun-Moon personality blend of Senator Rand Paul.

*Pluto in Capricorn rising spotlights the current transiting Venus-Pluto opposition with Venus at 13 Cancer conjoining Sirius, The Scorcher, the goddess star of Egypt.

Hexagon: a New Astrology Magazine Debuts, August 2015!

Good news for astrologers and for those merely curious about the cosmic art: on August 19, 2015, Hexagon, a fresh, cutting edge astrology magazine concerning contemporary topics will be released. Tap or click for details about this exciting effort, the first new astrology magazine to debut in decades.

And please consider supporting Hexagon via Kickstarter or subscribe as you wish!

Now admittedly my focus these last several years has been on Political Astrology, especially that of Washington DC, so finding that one of the topics of Hexagon's first issue will be the Astrology of the NSA gives me reason to look forward to broiling August which is typically my least favorite month of the year (due to the extreme temperatures here in Georgia...can you blame me?)

So tonight from East Coast to West, I happily send out harmonic vibes and best wishes for success to the writers, artists, and publishers of Astrology's newest star, Hexagon magazine!


Marco Rubio’s RNC Spending Spree - video (Jupiter-Neptune)

MarcoRubio #RepublicanParty #GOP #Campaign2016 #spendthrift

Hmmm...must check out the planets that signify spend-thriftiness and illusion in Marco Rubio's natal chart--Jupiter and Neptune, the inflationary pair of speculation, grandness, and potential fraud. And it seems quite appropriate now considering his questionable spending that within a few days of the time that a very thirsty Senator Rubio gave the Republican response to President Obama's 2013 SOTU address, expansive Jupiter, planet of money, greed, 'sprees', and overspending, stationed upon Rubio's natal Sun, planet of ego, a transit denoting increases in the political and financial realms along with a lack of boundaries and a perhaps ill-advised sense of importance.

The Awakening - Max Igan (Full Length Documentary 2011)

#MaxIgan #TheAwakening #SurvivingTheMatrix

Uranus-Neptune to Earth: Are You Unconscious?

In astrology, when it comes to such things as the elimination of the waking consciousness leading to a lack of clarity, spiritual understanding, inner vision, peculiar inclinations, and the growth of subconscious powers or forces, the midpoint between Uranus and Neptune is useful in analysis. The Uranus-Neptune pair also contains flavors of psychic researchers, mystics, and clairvoyants. These two planets of the Enlightenment--the so-called Age of Reason--conjoin approximately every 171 years and last met 3 times in 1993 around the POLITICAL POWER degree of 18 Capricorn with its "The Union Jack Flies from a British Destroyer" Sabian Symbol. The negative expression of this degree is, "smug or strong-armed paternalism" (Jones) and describes in large part the negative forces growing stronger in the dark--out of public view--and causing conflicts and calamities in today's world.

Not exactly the sort of enlightenment most folks yearn for, is it? As detailed in the Max Igan broadcast above, each of us as members of the worldwide community must facilitate our own awakenings and shake off our lack of clarity. Never mind "Tomorrow Land" and other fluffy fantasies--the future of our children requires our conscious participation in reality Now.
