Max Igan - The Big Picture (Full Length Movie)

Sunday August 28, 2016 10:10 pm edt North Atlanta, GA

A new week has begun with Sunday being the first day of the week although most folk return to work on Mondays as if it's the first day of the week. The following Max Igan presentation is a tremendously powerful way to start this new week so I hope you gain from watching the film but mostly from hearing it:

Does it ever occur to you that if the people and organizations who control the majority of the money and treasure on this planet didn't want children to starve to death, we'd live in a world where children do not starve to death. Needed medicines, treatment, and therapy would be available for the ill and the injured, no matter the country, region, or politics.

Of course, this can be applied to all the good works we can think of as the greedy reptilian overlords exploit everything and everyone to their selfish advantage. They even have a 'master plan' to rule the entire globe written by their favorite demon spirit (who's already lost the contest!) Now we could say, how cute! to bolster their self-esteem but really it would be better to jettison them all from government--end the infestation of our institutions. Let bankers be bankers and financiers be financiers! Let politicians--well, there's little hope for the ones who think their job description includes surreptitious pocket-lining. Even so, this long term Utopian plan to depopulate the Earth and take control by creating havoc and fomenting chaos has gotta stop. You're embarrassing yourselves, dear little cabal heads.

Mon petit chou chou! Oh wait. That's little cabbage head. Oh well. Close enough.

Campaign 2016 and the 2004 DNC Speech that Catapulted Barack Obama into Our Lives

August 27, 2016: Brief Astro-Notes on a President and Presidential Wanna-Bes

by Jude Cowell

On the evening of July 27, 2004, Senate candidate Barack Obama delivered a rousing speech that electrified his audience and many of the public watching at home. Who is that skinny politician of the silvery oratory skills? Can he be president some day? Is such a hope mere audacity? Well, if higher ups are watching, guiding, training, and grooming a previously unknown politician, he or she certainly can rise through the ranks to become president. And as you know, Mr. Obama was selected to play the POTUS role of White House mouthpiece in 2008, a mere four years after his 2004 DNC speech debut upon the world stage.

A few highlights of his rhetoric in 2004 include how his father got a scholarship "to study in a magical place, America,"; "John Kerry believes in America"; "I am my brother's keeper" (it's true, he is, and so am I); "E pluribus unum" (out of the many, one); "There is not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America: there's the United States of America" (which brought thunderous, elated applause, if memory serves); we have a "righteous wind at our backs" (debatable--more like the racketeering winds of war); and he provided a few descriptions of the kind of 'hope' he was talking about--one was: "It's the hope of slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom songs," a sentiment that remains all too true thanks to our corporate Global Government masters (for whom Senator Obama touted on that hot July night whether he knew it or not--such is the price of a presidency).

Yes, slaves to a rigged system are we...which is not to diminish the horrific enslavement of an entire race of people for the sake of financial gain and to prop up an ill-built economic system operated by pathological predators upon humanity.

Back in 2004, Mr. Obama intoned something which closely applies to Election 2016:

"This year, in this election, we are called to reaffirm our values and our commitments, to hold them against a hard reality and see how we are measuring up, to the legacy of our forbearers and the promise of future generations."

Full 2004 transcript of his speech.

A "hard reality" yes, especially since the September 1, 2016 19 North Solar Eclipse contains themes of realism and tackling the truth (Brady). Trouble is, the eclipse @9Vir21 is opposed by confusing, deceptive, fraudulent, speculating Neptune strong in its own sign of Pisces which can signify such potentials as pessimism, chaos, cravings, clouding of issues, and pathological tendencies. As you've noticed, pathological tendencies such as lying and fakery are regular topics on the Campaign 2016 trail and I have previously stated that on November 8th I must settle for Hillary Clinton's sober, more realistic Mercury-Saturn square rather than Donald Trump's fact-and-perspective distorting Mercury-Neptune square. Yet it's quite a non-choice they've given us, isn't it? Feels to me like in Campaign 2016, We the People are being pulled between fact and fiction like a bone between two old hounds! And both are kinda mangey...

Because both 2016 candidates are weighed down by heavy baggage from their pasts and are hindered by real and fake scandals their opponents harp on. And both engender anxious concerns over health and aging issues (Grandma vs Grandpa!)

Still, we have a current president sitting in the (Venusian) Oval Office while transit Venus in Sagittarius on November 8th will point toward a rival moving into the White House on January 20, 2017--which would be a candidate of the Republican Party--a 'stranger' or 'the other' or 'an outsider' such as the sign of Sagittarius prefers if the US presidential Venus Cycle holds true in November. Of course, election rigging and tampering can always result in a different victory than the people expect for we've seen such machinations before.

So yes, a few transits did activate future president Obama's natal planets as he gave the July 2004 DNC speech that catapulted him into our national consciousness (and more evidence may be found in his progressed and return charts, not covered here). Since we have a time stamp on the transcript, we know he began his speech at 11:09 pm edt with 21Aries47 rising in Boston and 11Cap19 at Midheaven. Therefore, The Goal (Capricorn) was apparently to gain control over the minds of the masses via the persuasive rhetoric for which he soon became known (YOD: Sun-NN = Pluto: inner preparation during underground years provides adaptability for a new level of power as all vulnerabilities are purged--Tierney). I'd say that his 'overnight sensation' image was all illusion and pretense with the support of 2004's Neptune @14AQ approaching natal Ascendant (18AQ03), plus 2004's Mercury, planet of speeches, orators, and voters, @2Virgo27 neared his natal Pluto (6Vir58) which denotes a time when plans and activities involve gaining more power.

Actually, orating Mercury that night was centered between Mr. Obama's natal 7th house Pluto-North Node conjunction (public contact with the masses; promoting propaganda) so let's close with the midpoint picture this cosmic circumstance created on that karmic night of rhetoric when Obama's political prowess was on major display:

Pluto-NN = Mercury: thinking big; hearing the grass grow; intellectual dominance (Tyl); ability to exercise a compelling and magnetically powerful influence upon the community at large (Ebertin); getting the right education; feeling shifts of power and taking advantage of them; conversing fluently with influential people (Munkasey).

One thing stands out to me when comparing and contrasting the 2004 Election with the one we suffer through now: there is no silvery tongue to beguile us this time. But there be plenty of forks.

Hillary's Weird Behavior: The Cover-Up - clip

Now from earlier in August 2016 belatedly comes this to Stars Over Washington. Even so, I'm not a fan of posting the following video presentation for it possibly involves 'the tragic destiny of a woman' and increases societal instability when crazy things can happen. In my estimation a rating of X: not for children is warranted but see what you think--is the 'leaked' medical information about candidate Hillary Clinton legit? Can our eyes and ears be deceived? Have stranger things ever happened?

Perhaps her brain's robotic sector has been hacked, or, she's actually ill as per the alleged medical records. She's quite Sci-Fi, y'know, but acts as if she relies on caffeine to 'keep going'...bloating and weight gain occur. Center of balance is knocked off by the extra poundage causing unsteady knees, ankles, feet. Sugar is a major menace as well along with salt. It's doubtful that her 'falling down incident' in recent years and its sunglasses aftermath have engendered much public confidence in the lady's near-70 generation in the physical stamina department. And believe me when I say that I loathe having to agree on this topic with sophomoric Republicans, the yappers-at-her-heels these decades. It's been a very tiresome tactic but diverting for a majority of the masses, one supposes.

Having nursed my Mom, to me Hillary's coughs sound like acid reflux, and/or she takes a chemical brew of Rx meds for various conditions (BP?) and her mouth and throat suddenly go totally dry. And this can cause coughing especially when talking is involved. Long political campaigns are known to mess with orators' throats but this can be attended to. Her breathing issue can possibly be a side effect of one or more of her chemical brew ingredients, the combo prescribed just for her. Then there's Parkinson's. My Mom developed it and I watched as the symptoms worsened. To me, Hillary Clinton does need medical care and therapy and must admit that The Trail of 2016 and the speeches are overly stressful just now. The lady needs a calming respite.

Blog Note: this medical assessment is complimentary for it's only my personal 'assessment'. Actually I don't know a fig about what I speak and, I suspect, neither do you unless you're a trained medical professional. But I wish to say that her coughing is very worrisome, I agree. Additionally, foul play is not acceptable to this American and hopefully you will call it out when you run up against it.

So if a serious illness or condition is present (whether the 'leaked records' are genuine or not) then of course her step-down from Campaign 2016 and the Democratic nomination will be an obvious correction that must be taken. God help us all.

September 2016 Eclipses: Two 'Wild Cards' of the Universe

by Jude Cowell

September 2016 begins on the 1st of the month with a Solar Eclipse @9Virgo21 uncovering what may be stark facts and secrets and this provides constructive conditions conducive to a tackling of the truth. (Brady)

Two weeks and a day later, a Lunar Eclipse @24Pisces manifests and further spotlights the Virgo-Pisces polarity of the victim-savior axis. Naturally, Mercury (Virgo) and Jupiter (co-ruled by Neptune if we wish to call it so since we are typing about larger trends in society). The transiting Neptune-South Node covers much intrigue, loss, propaganda, and crime (with a Neptune-Saturn flavor) but the period will pass although its effects will last a while until they fade and dissolve.

19 North: The Virgo Solar Eclipse of September 1, 2016

With this particular 19N Solar Eclipse, a Virgo filter allows the sign's energies to express in such a way that discrimination, discernment, purity, and a sense of duty are sought, engaged, or, in some cases, neglected. As an Earth sign, Virgo indicates physical demands of some kind are presented or called for. Keen observance and deep perception are best utilized wherever possible while the 19 North themes are in effect if forward progress is to be made--themes of realism and constructively tackling the truth. Harvest is a word often associated with (goddess) Virgo and there is actually a *karmic asset here if things are kept in perspective for too much criticism, degradation, (--"that's disgusting!," says Mr. Trump quite often); plus, neglect of health, and/or overuse of restraint when action is called for may interfere with progress.

Note that Virgo health connotations also involve Genetics, DNA, Family Roots, and Genealogy Research into them. Those like yours truly with a current Saturn transit to natal 4th house may be involved in such an investigation as I type!

The September 16th Lunar Eclipse in Pisces suggests the primary reactions and instincts of the Collective concerning events and conditions that the Solar Eclipse has wrought. Compassion, confusion, infection, mystification, denial, and other Piscean characteristics will come up for air as a result of the Virgo Solar Eclipse which, as it happens, is the Pre-Natal Saros series of both Election Day 2016 and Inauguration 2017 so that eclipse themes will apply to both events and have actually begun to express early in tandem with the current 18 South Solar Eclipse which perfected on March 9, 2016 @18Pis55 and includes themes of separation, endings, and partings--yet new situations may lead to positive results so that all may turn out in the end (paraphrasing Predictive Astrology, Brady).

~:~

Blog Note: * as always, here on SO'W "karmic asset" and "karma" are used in the sense of reaping what's been sown, a natural law of the Universe, and since Virgo-Pisces and the 6/12 axis are all about that, there we have it, with Genetics, Heredity, Cells, and such reserved for Astrology's Saturnian branches of study rather than the Uranian past-life model created within the Strain At a Gnat Swallow a Camel School of Philosophy. jc

Judges Are Finally Calling Out Voter Suppression For What It Is! - clip (plus, Eclipses)

August 19, 2016 Thom Hartmann on judges' recent rulings on the hidden intent behind Republican voter suppression laws rather than going along with the Republicans' stated intent:

Astrologically, I'm noting the wording of this clip's title that includes "...for what it really is!" since the phrase and the judges' rulings against voter suppression tactics resonate perfectly with the 19 North early-acting Solar Eclipse of September 1, 2016 with its themes of "realism; seeing things for what they really are rather than what he or she thought it was; a good time for tackling the truth" (Brady). Yes, it must be a good time for tackling the truth because we're hearing quite a few examples of it during Campaign 2016 thanks, in part, to email leaks and hacks.

And with September 2016 a month with a Solar and Lunar Eclipse, their function as peep-eye! agents and 'wild card' uncoverers of secrets and inconvenient truths should spotlight for the public a surprising amount of realism in stark contrast with America's usual political scene of lies, fraud, crime, and propaganda.

Manifesting ten days prior to the first presidential debate, here are a few notes on the Sept 16, 2016 Lunar Eclipse: The Mystery of the Three Days (Saturn-NN).

The Asteroids and Dreams of Republican VP pick Mike Pence

On July 15/16, 2016 or thereabouts, 2016 Republican nominee Donald Trump tweeted his VP choice of Mike Pence, the pro-life, pro-gun, megachurch member and governor of Indiana. Considering the odds of Trump dropping out of the race or a subsequent de facto Pence presidency with Donald doing most of the talking, it behooves those of us who appreciate the information Astrology provides to investigate Governor Pence under the lens of the ancient art.

Those who notice cosmic synchronicities may also benefit from a consideration of asteroids including personal name asteroids and few there be who glean more from this method of investigation than astrologer Alex Miller who has long written columns for the excellent Daykeeper Journal.

Using personal name asteroid 'Penza' as a signifcator for Mike Pence, an assessment has been made and I highly recommend Alex Miller's linked-below article on Trump's selection of Pence (which places a theocrat a hair's breath from the presidency: the GOP plan all along?), the very descriptive asteroids involved, and an interesting Penza-Neptune conjunction in Pisces exact on November 8, 2016 which suggests the possibility of Neptunian disappointment for Pence.

Or (I must ask), will it bring to the masses Pence's theocratic dream come true?

In case you missed it, here is a direct link to The Veepstakes Winner: An Astrological Profile of Mike Pence by Alex Miller.

~:~

A note on yours truly's opposition to a theocratic presidency: as a Christian believer in the Spiritual Church of Christ, I believe that morality comes from within and cannot be externally forced or imposed by government edict or any other sort of edict or law. Religious freedom is one of our nation's founding principles, so we've been told, and a theocracy is totally unacceptable to this American.

Yes, society's morals are degraded but that is a purposeful part of the plan to dissolve the sovereignty and cohension of this country and its people for the sake of establishing a one world government which aspires to destroy religion and other institutions of civilization. Disagree as you may, placing religion in the claws of government is the wrong path and will cause a great migration away from true faith because it will be false and it will cause religion to be used as a tool against the people. And oddly enough, theocracy in America would be only a stone's throw away from establishing Sharia Law which Republican politicians and others purport to be against. As usual, the ruling class will continue to consider themselves above all laws, no matter the president.

For if you've read a few of my articles here and elsewhere, you may have noticed that to me, the profession of Politics primarily attracts fakers, liars, embezzlers, and crooks determined to gain and keep their cushy positions. You know, like "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests," the Sabian Symbol of US natal Jupiter (6 Cancer) of July 4, 1776? jc

Remembering Chandra Levy - video (plus, Astrology)

As you've heard from various sources, on July 28, 2016 murder charges were dropped in the Chandra Levy case as reported in this news clip. And here is a video with background information and a sad remembrance of her disappearance on May 1, 2001 along with events that followed, plus, a brief video concerning a retrial of the case:

~:~

It is said that Miss Levy had a "strong interest" in the Timothy McVeigh case and the Oklahoma City Bombing (chart, below), may possibly have been recruited by Mossad and the CIA, and that she was seated in the V.I.P. section for the George W. Bush inauguration. Sounds like Chandra Levy knew a lot of other people's secrets...

please enlarge the chart but if it won't, view it here.

One prominent feature in the Oklahoma City Bombing horoscope is the Hard Rectangle pattern which triggers the opposition to act with more drive than it otherwise would – the added tension shows antagonism and a lack of compromise on all sides.

Born on April 14, 1977, Chandra's natal chart with her Sun Aries-Moon Pisces personality blend may be viewed at astro.com where her birth data is rated AA for accuracy.

Standing out is a Mercury-Uranus opposition suggesting that she could "incur the wrath of others" by demonstrating a know-it-all attitude, tactlessness, and/or a disregard for compromise. Naturally, a full assessment of her natal chart is needed to corroborate or discount the strength of her Mercury-Uranus opposition which conjoins her MC-IC axis (Taurus-Scorpio). Her romantic, moody, worrying, and restless Sun-Moon combination of Aries-Pisces is shared natally by three notables in my files though you may know of more: Dr. Richard Dawkins, Hugh Hefner, and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
