2nd Sept 1666: Great Fire of London breaks out in Pudding Lane - video (w/ Astrology)

2nd September 1666: Pudding Lane, London, England. A baker leaves an oven burning as he retires for the night, a fiery conflagration ensues. Winds blow as London goes up in flames. HistoryPod shares the basics of the tale in 2 minutes 40 seconds with a little Astrology to follow:


A Brief Astro-Peek at the Great Fire of London

by Jude Cowell

Naturally when it comes to fire, planet Mars must be investigated and on September 2, 1666, the planet of arson was at 14 Scorpio, a sign that Mars rules. Morbid, secretive, sometimes betraying Scorpio is sub-ruled by the permanent transformation planet of wealth, stealth, and sabotage, Pluto (when in Gemini = ruthless behavior toward society or the social order--Ebertin). That Britain's current financial center, the City of London (51N51:55 00W09:22) developed from the clearing out of London by the Great Fire of 1666 is beyond the scope of this post and yet it lurks within my own thoughts, if not in yours. As you know, the City of London is Sui generis as are we all as unique individuals and is a sovereign state as is the Vatican with its scandal-prone Vatican Bank of money launderers and thieves.

A Few Primary Planetary Influences Active on September 2, 1666:

Pluto and the North Node of Destiny were coasting in tandem though Pluto remained in late Gemini (28Gem28--'28Gem' = BANKRUPTCY), yet North Node (the public) @2Cancer58 would soon meet Mr. Hades to form the tiger by the tail duo of Pluto-NN. This pair implies a common and tragic destiny, according to Ebertin.

In addition, another conjunction held sway: Saturn @13Cap59 Rx and Neptune @19Cap38 Rx with loss-bringer Neptune curiously at its 'new world order' degree as in 1993 when the nebulous fraudster met radical reformer Uranus, forming the oh-so-rational planetary pair of the Enlightenment.

(You, dear reader, must be quite fatigued with my near-constant mention of this pair of arch conspirators of Globalism but with all that's occurring before our eyes since the New Millennium, how can I do otherwise?)

Now I have yet to find an exact or approximate time that the sleepy baker left the oven burning but an early night of it must have been the case since bakers must arise extremely early, you know. At 8:02 pm LMT on that date, the Moon was freshly into Scorpio (2:29 and setting) and the Sun was @10Virgo25--with a critical-crisis 29th degree rising (ASC 29Ari06 = fiery Mars ruling the chart and the event, I suspect). Sudden event planet Uranus was not only strong in its sign of Aquarius (21:33 Rx) but conjoined wounded Chiron (22:32 Rx) while hidden by Dark Moon W'Mat2. Intriguingly, MIDAS Rx conjoined Uranus as well and perhaps suggested some type of monetary motivation for the conflagration. Plus, Uranus may cause difficult disruptions and upsets at the most inconvenient of times.

Another reason I like the '8:02 pm' chart is that Egyptian goddess star Sirius conjoins the IC, the Ending Point of the chart where a draining of energy occurs. Sirius is sometimes known as The Scorcher, a most descriptive application in such a case.

Still, the prime motivator of any fiery show has to be Mars, the fire-starter, in mid-Scorpio as noted, conjoined fixed star Zuben Elschemali, keywords: negative social reform. And of course, the influence of Saturn's and Neptune's combined energies by conjunction indicates a time period with potentials for distrust, hysteria, sacrifice, tormenting conditions, illnesses, weakness, and/or a 'methodical execution of plans' (Ebertin). Both Saturn and Neptune are considered karmic planets that can bring losses of all kinds--combined, they may bring societal woes and conditions of suffering that were most likely a long time forming.

As I type at you from North of Atlanta, Georgia, let's consider the Solar Eclipse Saros Series under which the Great Fire of London occurred and a curious synchronicity which you may find rather interesting:

Prior to September 2nd, on July 2, 1666, a Solar Eclipse manifested @10Can26 in the 11 North Series with fiery Mars @7Lib23. Round up the degree of Mars and its Sabian Symbol seems appropriate for our topic: "A Blazing Fireplace in a Deserted Home"..."the ever-nascent HOPE for a rebeginning." (Rudhyar). Of course, much rebeginning (rebuilding) was necessary with perhaps the most famous architect in history, honorary Freemason Christopher Wren redesigning London, cathedrals and all.

And the curious synchronicity? That would be the fact that 11 North is also the Pre-Natal Series of The Burning of Atlanta to the ground, via Union General Sherman and his troops, on November 15, 1864.

And the most recent manifestation of 11 North? That would be what I then called the New President Eclipse of January 26, 2009, the eclipse @6AQ30 (conjunct US natal South Node) which is cosmically imprinted upon the presidency of Barack Obama--inaugurated it, we might say. It's aka, the Ring of Fire Eclipse. 11 North's initial manifestation was on August 1, 1125 (OS) @14Leo33 and its themes that were in effect in 1666, 1864, and 2009 are: suddenly changing groups through travel or ideas and feeling that a great deal may be gained (Brady).

So 11 North has influenced at least two major fires burning cities to the ground and a suspicious financial heist that wiped out trillions of dollars from the pockets and pensions of millions of regular folk while the 1% "gained a great deal." Therefore, it seems to me that forms of exploitation and oppression of the masses must be embedded within the 11 North Saros Series. The next occurrence of 11N will be on February 6, 2027 @18Aquarius, fyi, so if you're around for it, please watch your back.


In no particular order, other events influenced by 11 North include: the '13 Bankers' visit to the Oval Office (Mr. Obama's alleged 'pitchfork warning' to the sorry jack*sses), the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, Bush Senior's Desert Storm invasion (his touted heralding of a 'new world order'), the Hindenburg Disaster of 1937, and the construction of the White House where US presidents have come to expect "a great deal" -- as long as they follow the transnational bankers' script toward Global Banking though the Rothschildian conspirators' long term plan received a bit of a goosing this week as Britons voted to Leave the EU.

Horoscope: European Union w/ June 23, 2016 Brexit vote planets

After yesterday's Brexit vote to leave the EU, NY's DOW plunges after opening, reports Huffington Post, which follows the global markets' lead.

Somehow as an astrologer this all seems engineered to tally with a global crash agenda made visible by 1993's three conjunctions of Uranus and Neptune at the POLITICAL POWER degree of 18 Capricorn, a degree which transiting Pluto is now within range of. Complete financial collapse is necessary for the power elite to institute a 'new world order', aka, a 'new world economic order' or 'global government'. The 'New Order of the Ages' that was created with the founding of America has grown stale according to transnational bankers and their operatives, some of whom work the levers of Washington DC from the vantage point of America's invisible (or, secret) government.

,p>After all, transit Pluto to the 1993 Uranus-Neptune conjunction indicates potentials for: calamities and catastrophes (Ebertin) and/or, the big picture which must be followed, very little option to do otherwise (Tyl). So is the Brexit vote to leave the EU part of the 'big picture' or is it a case of doing 'otherwise'?

Perhaps the doomsayers who have asserted that 2016 is the year of a Great Global Crash were correct--unless markets and traders can calm themselves down (which I assert they can do if they will). Below is the horoscope of the EU set for November 1, 1993 00:01 CET Brussels, Belgium as found in Nicholas Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes. Outer planets in red are the Brexit transits of June 23, 2016 12:00 am CEDT Brussels, Belgium, the EU administrative capital.

And as you see, the EU is in the midst of a three-fer *Mars Return to 24Sco06 and its natal Pluto conjunction which denotes a time of karmic events (by which this Saturnian astrologer always means, reaping what was sown):

please enlarge to read notes; more information will be added later because right now, a certain 4-year-old is at my door!


* EU Mars Return/s: February 20, 2016; June 17, 2016, and July 12, 2016.

Ask King Midas: Is "Spread the Wealth" Socialism?

King Midas. Etching. Wellcome V0035927

The following post is a Stars Over Washington republish from October 2008. I had totally forgotten I'd ever written it but, thanks to today's Brexit vote and its possibility of adversely affecting global markets and economies, I find myself in the mood to re-post it for you now.

So whether you agree or disagree, here it is:

Well, it's true that the phrase "spread the wealth" never goes over well with the richest class, and I can think of no better reason than this: if spreading or sharing actually occurred, half a million or so of their dollars might be used to feed the hungry, bind the wounds of the ill and dying, and comfort an orphan or a foster child or two.

Why, a factory might be built and a few jobs created - and after the corporate elite worked so hard to ship our jobs overseas, too!

So apparently, if there's one thing a rich man can't stand, it's being his brother's keeper by giving back a little of the largess he receives through the laws of this great nation and from the sweat of the common worker's brow.

Never mind that a rich man has money and legal reps to avoid paying taxes which he rightly should have been paying all along. Plus, they didn't invent offshore or Swiss bank accounts for nuthin'!

As you know, it was King Midas who turned everything he touched into gold which became a major problem to him because gold isn't everything and people turned into golden statues make poor companions.

Now, lest a rich man think this gnat of a blogger covets his gold, let him rest at ease, for temporary values don't trump (Trump!) eternal values with me - for it's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God, says Scripture.

And you know that rich men probably think they have that circumvented just as they do with creative accounting tricks, triple sets of books, laws skewed on their behalf against the individual, world banks in cahoots, and Wall Street schemes galore.

But one day when All accounts are settled, we'll have to see about that. We'll all just have to see, won't we?

June 23, 2016: Funny that I must have been thinking of Donald 'King Midas' Trump and his love of gold when I published the above post in 2008--probably because he's threatened to run for president multiple times in the past. Well, this week my wonderment at his campaign rhetoric involves his assertion that he's "made a fortune off debt" (or words to that effect) and I can't figure out exactly who was harmed while he was making his fortune (contractors he refused to pay, for one.)

And yet I'm sure you've heard that, besides having a 'golden touch', Mr. Trump is Really, Really Proud to Be the 'King of Debt'! But before anyone (s)elects him to be US president, I'd like them to explain how his indebtedness to a certain German bank could compromise a Trump presidency because his indebtedness creates a vast Conflict of Interest that no other presidential candidate has ever had!

Independence Day 2016 brings America a New Moon

US Solar Return 2016 Emphasizes Money, Ethics, and an Inflow of New Energies

by Jude Cowell

On July 4, 2016 at 5:49:52 pm EDT (Washington DC), the Sun returns to America's July 4, 1776 Sun position of 13Cancer19 (in the 5:09 pm LMT chart, Philadelphia, PA). 'The Old Girl' will be all of 240 years old and she seems these days to be codgering about in her dotage--her reputation tarnished, her population divided in regard to the haves and have-nots, and yoked to a brutal militarism that drains our coffers dry and abuses We the People, among millions of others.

In our Solar Return 2016 horoscope set for DC, the Sun @13Cancer falls in the 8th house of Credit, Debt, Big Finance, Transformation, Death, and the Occult. Keeping our Sun (leadership; POTUS) company in 8th house are Mercury @9Can36, Moon @19Can14 and just past the morning's New Moon @12Can53 (7:01 am EDT), the starry Twins, Castor and Pollux, and Venus @21Can00. Opposite in the 2nd house is wealthy string-puller and spy chief Pluto @16Cap16. Can our 4 little personal planets succeed against power-grabber Pluto, god of the criminal Underworld and purveyor of the transnational banking system?

Well, you know how financial matters have been going both here and abroad since transit Pluto began lining up against America's Cancer trio of Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun--I would time it for late 2007 with tr Pluto in late Sagittarius and within 5 degrees of US natal Venus (3Cancer), though you may disagree.

Why, even during the era of the Great Depression, transit Pluto conjoined our Cancer trio of planets but now things are quite different in the global sphere since the New Millennium came knocking on humanity's door.

And with 7Sag04 rising along with restrictive Saturn Rx @10Dag57, delays and limitations are obviously indicated in relation to the 2nd house of Money, Earnings, and Valuations. That chart-ruler Jupiter (critical degree 17Virgo and still traveling near the North Node) makes no applying Ptolemaic aspects in the Return chart emphasizes Jupiter's sign, degree, and house position--strong in its own 9th house, and conjunct MC (23Vir12 which places US natal Neptune @22Virgo at The Goal Point of the year). Money, money, money. Yet Jupiter does apply to an opposition with wounded healer Chiron which implies a goal of establishing "a radical redirection of the socio-cultural environment--anarchy and occultism play a central role in {} the transformative vision." (Nolle). One political minded culprit who was born under a Jupiter-Chiron opposition is Adolf Hitler.

One thing I want to mention before I forget is that Mercury @10Can36 in the US Solar Return chart (and in the New Moon chart, same day, @9Can37) will have recently returned to its position in the natal chart of Donald Trump. This aside is included because I assume that Mr. Trump will not have been jettisoned from the presidential race by July 4th! Perhaps we should check out his Mercury Return chart soon.

So can we attach significance to the cosmic fact that America's Solar Return 2016 horoscope involves a New Moon which perfects approximately 10 hours 49 minutes prior to the Sun reaching 13Can19? We can and we shall for a New Moon in a Return chart within one degree of the Return planet is indicative of fresh energies flowing in and a new cycle of activity relating to the Return and natal house position of the New Moon.

In our nation's natal and Solar Return charts, the New Moon perfects in the 8th hou$e (cusp = 9Can30); in the New Moon chart it's in the 12th house of Politics, Karma, Self-Undoing, Large Institutions, and Back Room Deals but with 25Gem07 on the 12th cusp. This is the degree of the New Moon on the morning that Donald Trump announced his bid for the presidency. That all these factors relate in various ways to the candidacy and broke campaign of Mr. Trump seems quite certain though of course other conditions, events, and actors are not ruled out. And I have asked you before if you think Mr. Trump's New Moon in the sign of The Messenger (which he has called himself upon occasion) will culminate in the Full Moon @27Capricorn during the RNC in July. You didn't answer but I shall assume that this possibility horrifies you as much as it does me--especially since the RNC Full Moon precisely conjoins US natal Pluto.

In addition, a New Moon in our Solar Return 2016 chart has consequences which may be seen by planetary aspects to it. Here we have Mercury and Venus conjunct Sun and Moon which is quite positive along with a trine from Neptune (11Pis55 Rx in 9th house of the New Moon chart, 3rd house otherwise). Although Neptunian involvement can be inspirational it can also be deceptive, fraudulent, undermining, or confusing (to name a few!)

Plus, this is a time of culmination seen via the Jupiter-Neptune opposition, a cycle which began with their Great Conjunction/s in Aquarius (conjunct US natal Moon) three times in 2009, and their inflated conjunctions are imprinted upon the presidency of Barack Obama. Jupiter-Neptune makes truth difficult to ascertain, events unpredictable, fantastic get-rich schemes tempting, and guilt and self-pity the favorite go-to excuses. Political conflicts are also suggested by Jupiter-Neptune, something Washington seems to be tragically addicted to for it divides and keeps the American people out of the way.

Of course, the real culprit in the chart is the opposing Pluto we discussed, above, as Mr. Invisible continues his creepy plod through the sign of Government, Law, and Business, on his way to America's first-ever Pluto Return/s in 2022. As you know, Ebertin asserts that one of the roles played by Pluto in Capricorn is, The Dictator, but that would be a moment no sane person is waiting for.

Now we won't get to them all in this post but there are many other chart factors worth discussing in the Return horoscope--fire-starter Mars in his sign of Scorpio, sub-ruled by Pluto, for one--but today my blogging time is brief. Perhaps the North Node (contacts with the public; future direction) sextiles to the New Moon and sextile to our Solar Return Sun--all three aspects applying--will provide benefits and we'll weather whatever storms our below-board politicians have planned for us (to please their global masters) for they act as infestations and infiltrators of what should still be a decent US government.

Now you know that our Solar Return 2016 horoscope is 'good for' one year until the next Independence Day and this will naturally include the beginning of a new presidential administration. Is this what is signified by our SR 2016 New Moon, which incidentally, conjoins Egyptian goddess star, Sirius?

Well, Sun-Moon-Sirius implies a large cosmic can of squirmy things we cannot open today so let's close with a note or two on Sun sextile North Node (trine South Node, of course) and Moon sextile North Node. With the Sun, opportunities are suggested for working in harmony with prevailing social trends and conditions. Moral and ethical standards may be made constructive use of along with upholding acceptable traditions. This indicates a type of social leadership that can win public support, while the Lunar-NN sextile adds an element of good, effective timing to events and societal conditions.

Wishing a Happy 240th Birthday to my fellow Americans! And may a dictator disguised as a president never enter the Oval Office.

The Deep State: The Unelected Shadow Government - video

In 8 minutes 44 seconds, here is John W. Whitehead explaining America's Deep State which is what Astrology has called the Secret, or Invisible (Neptune) Government (Saturn) as seen in US natal charts that are set for late afternoon of July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA.

Personally I tend to use 5:09 pm LMT for America because it places two of the Cardinal World Points on the MC (Goal; Aspirations)/IC (Home; Endings) points. This also places 1776 Saturn (14Libra) and Neptune (22Virgo) on each side of the 00Libra MC which suggests that the now-named 'Deep State' or a Secret/Invisible Government was established from America's founding. And my suspicion has been that the 1776 out-of-bounds Pluto (27Capricorn) was and remains a significator of power elite bosses (then and now) who pull the strings--from abroad:


Of course, the karmic duo of Saturn and Neptune also involves such systems as Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Capitalism--all the oppressive -isms you'd care to name as mentioned in yesterday's (related) post concerning the natal chart and work of H.G. Wells, 'new world order' promoter.

Here progressive author and broadcaster Thom Hartmann interviews author Thomas Frank whose book on Amazon is linked, below. One point made by Mr. Frank is that the successful fundraising of Bernie Sanders during Campaign 2016 proves that the Democratic Party doesn't have to be rotten with corporatism (my wording, not his) in order to win elections.

Of course, then Democrats would be beholden to We the People and expected to act on our behalf which is not part of the Global Government script that Washington follows though you may not hear such sentiments in the following interview! jc

Within these patterns are his impressive intellectual capacity, talents for technology and mathematics, and his nuclear interests. A gift for diplomacy is in there somewhere--with his 12th house Sun and Ascendant, both in Venus-ruled Libra, I suspect. jc

This 'terror girl' really gets around!

My thanks to Crystal for the heads-up.

Did US leaders and candidates get Orlando wrong?

Our hearts go out to victims, their families and friends in Orlando. And as Steve Benen of MSNBC notes, President Obama and 2016 candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have each made statements and remarks concerning the tragedy this weekend in Orlando, Florida.

Occurring quite close to July's political conventions and not so long before November Election Day 2016, Americans might get the idea that their emotions are being swayed toward voting in a certain direction. It's been done before and the accusation of 'false flag op' will surely turn up at some point if if hasn't already.

And yet for this American 'child of the Revolution', Obama, Clinton, and Trump have touted off-kilter lessons from the violence in Orlando so I'm posting here the lesson that all acts of terror have demonstrated to me--especially since the 1 North 'King of Terror Solar Eclipse' of August 11, 1999 which repeats as The Great American Eclipse in August 2017 due to the 18.6-year cycle of solar eclipses. The tango sparked by this manifestation of 1 North will naturally appear on the next president's dance card.

So here is the lesson I take from acts of terror against Americans--that while Washington and the Pentagon commit violence across the globe in their role as military arm of the corporate criminal banking syndicate enforcing a 'new world order' for the sake of Global Government, the American people are, and will continue to be, caught in the cross hairs of retaliation as we suffer blow back from the paternalistic strong-arming being done in our names.

Now you may suggest that there is more to it than this and of course you are correct. But without forgiveness, life is just an endless round of vengeance begetting vengeance which is something *the powers that think they be ought to know considering the 'unerring wisdom' they (incorrectly) assume themselves to possess. The tragic thing is, they do know but they only care for their own--and for retaining and expanding control via the ends justify the means tactics in which the rest of us are completely expendable--much as Satan, prince of this world, takes as many down with him as he goes. Thing is, he's already lost the battle so those who follow him follow a loser.

But look! Here are some of the US power elite and their own now:
