"Scuttle the Take Over"

Name everyone--individual or corporation--in the US who profits from Dubya's Dubai Deal? Will they come forward into the light so we can see their accountable mugs?

Is there a lack of US manpower due to deployment on other continents--is this one of the reasons our port security must be outsourced?

Are US workers being undercut again so global wheeler-dealers can make yet another profit?

If there's a breach of security at any of these Dubai-infused ports EVER--or at any other US ports that are dubiously secured by foreign governments--who will take responsibility for sending the fox INTO the henhouse?

Does the very phrase, "take-over" give you the willies, too?

The media keeps making the upcoming 45-day "review" all about Congress taking exception to the secret deal..so secret, even George was out of the loop--but it's more about the Populace lifting it's hapless head from the grindstone just long enough to sniff the rank air, and say, whaa-a-a-a...? Have they completely lost their minds?

It is We-the-Sheeple asking this OF Congress, Senate, administration, and all the powers that be, dear Media, you tool, you.

If the hapless sheep can sniff out the fox, why can't "government"--those who have sworn to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States?

Or do they smell mega-billions so strongly in their snooty nostrils they've lost the scent of common sense? Common sense isn't all THAT elusive...I suspect they're uninterested in cornering it.

The threat of headline, "Dubai Sues America" would make an interesting twist, wouldn't it? That would tie up our court system for years and give certain attorneys a lucrative reach-around.

Well if the case goes to court, I hear Harriet Miers is available.

Midas with Minerva and New Moon Monday

Monday evening, 7:30:43 pm est White House, there's is a New Moon 9Pis16, as asteroids, Midas, and Minerva continue their celestial tango.

This New Moon--beginning of the cycle, culminating in mid-March, can inform us as we consider the passing degree ("9Pis": unconcious, decribes past conditions still of influence similar to the Tarot position "Past Conditions"), and so "9Pis" =

"A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals." Keynote: Intense mobilization of energy and skill in the drive for success in any social performance affected by the competitive spirit. Every unnecessary consideration is to be dismissed in the one-pointed attempt to reach one's social goal. SELF-QUICKENING.(DR)

This New Moon is in process of becoming:

"10Pis" = "An aviator pursues his journey, flying through ground-obscuring clouds."
Keynote: Man's ability to develop powers and skills which by transcending natural limitations allow him to operate in mental spiritual realms. This Symbol speaks of
self-assertion...ambition...mastering difficulties....and being in command of powerful energies. He is an heir to countless innovators and managers. It evokes the achievemant of MASTERY.(DR)

As you know, the dark of the Moon is naturally a laid-back time when little happens unless it's sneaky, but it seems the White House will be perking Monday Eve and busy as kil--as little bees.

And after this White House showed such gullibility toward Chalabi concerning Iraq, we can only hope that Chalabi's hoofprints aren't all over Dubya's Dubai "Deal".

And there's old greedy Midas in tandem transit with Minerva, the Wise, associated with the Owl, the Society, etc, etc, YOU Wiki it...gotta mosey...the drawing board is calling my name...

Our President, who bombs women and children of other countries and ignores those of his own when they're drowning, is whining that the Dubya For Dubai Deal (now that someone's told him about it) MUST Go Through, because he's concerned that America will seem unfriendly!!!!

I can only but get the vapors over this one, with lots of exclamation points!!!!!

All bubbles eventually break, but as I've posted since the Bush nightmare began, America is the Big Loser here--Bush is exactly as many said he was at the start of his first campaign--a loser with a Napoleonic Complex, a sociopath, a braggart who over-estimates himself, and a bully. He is, if you will, a little man shilling for his poppa's favorite globalist agenda.

Has he made America the same? Well, there's an obvious difference--America is quite the poorer (empty Fort Knox, ya think?) while his nibs himself is wildly richer, as are his colleagues and friends.

Mr Bush has always made a point of reminding us that he does what he does and decides what he decides and doesn't really care what anyone else thinks about it (he feels it in this "gut", y'know.)

To suddenly become "concerned" about how AMERICA will be perceived because she's genuinely concerned about who works in her lackadaisacally-secured ports is more than disingenuous, it's insane. The pretzel has left the building.

Don't know who told him to say it, but your first guess doesn't count. Or if he came up with that lame excuse himself, it just goes to show--you can't shun your friends when it suits your purposes, then look for pals under every yo-ho-ho, matey.

Yep, Bush is mighty discriminating between those he helps, and those he cuts loose like an 80-year-old stranded on a drenched rooftop without her Medicaid card.

Why can't he be finicky about having a Middle Eastern presence in US ports without accusing us of being finicky instead? WE'RE the ones being finicky...? Well, he may be a cheeky monkey, but he's the least friendly cheeky monkey I've ever seen.

Sounds more like the script-which-must-be-followed is hanging over Bush's head, and that forces will push the Deal through no matter what's good for America.

And so he must parrot inane excuses for what is clearly out-of-bounds just like transit Pluto these days--out-of-bounds (oobs) and acting completely on his own.

This oobs Pluto (atomic/nuclear power; rage of destruction; sabotage) may be Iran doing its nuclear thing, and the Golden Mosque destruction was a fool-proof ploy for focusing the world's attention more fully on Iraq.

Ya gotta wonder what the other hand is doing in dark, secretive Pluto's realm...which is Underground and/or behind-the-throne.

sunrise in Baghdad 2.22.06

From the Dane Rudhyar version of Sabian Symbols, here're some Symbols for the day in Baghdad--for Feb 22, Wednesday...mosque-destruction and all.

Sun rising at "4 Pisces", so the Symbol for sunrise is for the day itself, and with
the ASC being the WHAT of the chart, we have:

"Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seaside resorts."

Keynote: The mobility and intensity of interchanges which make possible and characterize complex social processes. TRAFFIC.

As you see, Moon 13Sag45 is at the top of the chart--at Mc, or the WHY position of the chart, and the Crescent Moon is the symbol and calendar-determinant for the Middle East:

"14 Sag": "The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx."

>>>Sounds Cairo-esque to me, and yet may point to the Cairo-London-DC connection by way of Grand Lodges, etc. Why don't THEY make their views known on Middle Eastern issues? Seems to me they've got a lot of squawkin' to do after 11, but when the world could use their knowledge, where are they? Don't we ALL need all the help we can get?)

"14Sag" Keynote: The enduring power of occult knowledge and of its quasi-divine Custodians, "Seed-men" of a previous cycle of existence.

The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx are witnesses to such a Tradition, esp for the Western world. This knowledge is still available and by accepting its principles, modern man can best meet the challenge of our present world crisis. What is revealed is THE POWER OF SPIRITUAL ANCESTRY. (DR)

Rising with the Sun, is Fixed Star, Fomalhaut, a Royal Star of Persia, whose keywords are: success through noble ideals. It describes a charismatic mystic who must not use his success or recognition for his personal glory.

(All the Royal Stars are very strong if they're connected to your chart significantly, and may operate either positively or negatively. But it's not possible to "handle" them---they handle you, and they are all four very powerful.)

Fomalhaut is the Watcher of the South. Now who's south of Baghdad? Or maybe south of Iraq?

Mc 13Sag32 (WHY) rises with Fixed Star, Deneb adige = strong will; strong temper.

But there's a duality to this Star with a split between the strong fighting bird, and the swan-god. This describes a willingness to take the hero's journey, and a desire for self-awareness--another type of journey. Deneb adige is in the constellation, Cygnus, the Swan.

>Notice the mention recently of ill swans. "Ill swans" should be an oxymoron, but no longer.

Feb 22 2006 11:52 pm est

ps: Chiron, the Wounded One (and also a mystic or shaman-like figure) at 6AQ12, the "Medina degree", is opposite authoritarian Saturn...conflicts and stand-offs as the Wound is passed around.

Plutocrats: Generation of Materialism

Although the Great Conjunction of Neptune and Pluto (oil, gas, water, mining) marks the beginning of the Golden Age of the Robber Baron Class of the 1890s, Pluto and Chiron were hanging out together back in the day when the robber barons, crime barons--the pirate class--cemented and studied cementing their hold on natural resources, political power, and so on.

And the world banking system is implicated, natch. Wall Street gentry, as Eugene Debs termed them so appropriately.

Plus, the Uranus/Chiron (the system busters) midpoint is conjunct this Ascendant 5Leo38, which is less than 2 degrees from GWB's natal Ascendant. And he's a real system-buster and boundary-ignorer, as we've observed.

>>2006 - 1881 = 125, so add 125 degrees to NN 18Sag43, and it's Solar Arc NN conj natal Mercury at the top of the chart. Merc/NN = common or joint plans; meetings; communicating with the public.

So the Merc/NN Sabian Symbol, "19 Ari" is: "The magic carpet"> PANORAMA:

pos: full realization of the broad endowment which every man may make his own;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: detachment from ordinary living and a scorn for its responsibilities.

(And scorn for the ordinary folk who play by the rules, I assume...we're the pigeons and chumps.)

The midpoint between Plu/Chir in late degrees of Taurus is very near the Great Jupiter/Saturn conj of May 28, 2000, and only a whistle away from Fixed Star, Caput Algol...nasty.

Algol's keywords: decapitation; losing one's head; sickness; violence; criminality; murder; horror. (Horary Astrology, Anthony Louis.)

Diana Rosenberg reports that Caput Algol is the fixed star most often active in charts of harmful fires.

Wish I could say more now, esp since I've spread such joy all about...have the Secondary Progr'd Chart, etc, right here, but it is growing late. (In too many ways, my friends.)

And as to the common swill being passed around, we don't have time to be forced back onto belly-button-gazing mode yet again.

Committees proliferate more committees while making certain people look busy--and they help cover shiny patooties the world over...esp in varmint-infested Washington.

Will we ever learn? Is this internal war a more disabling threat to America than the Islamic boogeyman?

Wvweryone who bears the burden of Bush's crumbled strategy are not ready for the chaos in process of being unleashed. It's as if the wolves have let out the ubiquitous dogs...are we-the-sheeple and the people of other nations the beef?

Sneakin' Up in the Bushes

to eavesdrop can get you peppered or worse.

But that's just my personal opinion after some consideration.

If it's so, then I'm not the only one thinking it.

And they've been up to sumthin like the port treasonry...is there ANY WAY that having the enemy-hoarding, or even enemy-nurturing bunch of Emirates running SECURITY for us is a Good Idea? Does the word, BRAZEN, come to mind?

Have they gone completely round the bend in DC??? Just the PR alone would choke a lesser maggot. Someone said the B-adm has a tin ear, with which I haltingly concur. But it seems even more as if they're constantly throwing merde against the wall, and too many of us are letting it stick. Some are adding glue for a price. Are they all daft?

(See previous post on >US Progressed Chart 2006< for our current Turning Point/Crisis involving Mercury, the Messenger, the Scribe, the Traveler. Mercury is also associated with the Trickster element, archetypally-speaking, as in, the mind playing tricks, etc.

The Elite as Theatre, Dahling

Fright-masks, bland masks, where's-that-camera? masks, phoning themselves in when the tears threaten to flow (and America has shed some tears of late and has more to come) it's obvious that the Emotional level is not their turf. Emotions just get in the way.

The jokes about how they seclude themselves from the hoi poloi (sp?) are masking the fact that it's true--they necessarily do separate themselves into their lairs from which royal Leo roars at the rest of us.

So if Bush-Cheney & Co's shadow government are showing the real face of America, then shame on her. If they are not, I ask myself: where's the beef?

(Hint: not in Japan.)

And as GOP shills defend Cheney's hunting quirks so desperately, reminding us that he "is human", I think the parroting of talking points sounds more and more like the broken record it is, and is exceedingly grating on my last nerve.

For as you know,

The Day America Died

Nov 22, 1963
12:32 pm CST
Dallas, Texas

UPDATE Feb 23 2006 12:08 am:

Recently and ongoing, transit Uranus has been playing about Chiron's neighborhood from JFK's assassination, and you know what Chiron/Uranus, the system busters prefer...chaos.

This means that Uranus is also opposite its own position from 1963...and in a natal chart, this would be the official timing for the "midlife crisis".

And 1963 Saturn at the Unmasking degree, has been triggered repeatedly, and will continue to be so, by transit Neptune 17AQ+ 2006-07. Perhaps the mask will be removed from one who was responsible for the assassination...

Saturn = responsibility, and Neptune dissolves masks, rigid structures, etc...yet Neptune IS masks, veils, smokescreens, etc!

The Sun at the time of the murder was at the Halloween jester degree, a Symbol for SPONTANEITY, and which operates negatively as: a contempt for established values. Well, duh, you say.

Well, the assassination certainly made the sheeple's vote moot, didn't it? In a contemptuous way? You betcha. CIA "rogues", Mafia, Cuban exiles...and you know that Kennedy had made noises about reforming the world banking system--as had President Abrham Lincoln. We all know how his presidency turned out for him--and for America.

UPDATE May 5, 2007: read David Talbot's article RFK Immediately Thought Brother's Assassination Was Conspiracy for details...tr Saturn is now opposite its own 1963 position: the Unmasking degree!

a tortured rhyme for presidents day

Totured artist escapes from drawing board to deliver message from her tortured inner astrologer:

There once was a man from Connecticut
who craved DC power, not etiquette.
He made and broke rules while pandering to fools
the worst president we have met as yet.

And I'm about to post the chart for The Day America Died, sans comments until there's time to do it justice...you remember justice...? Perhaps this evening there will be some.

Update on Quails and Karma and Such

Since Cheney's life-threatening peppering incident won't be going away for some time, if ever, here is his natal chart with the Shooting (2.11.06 6:30 pm Armstrong Ranch, TX) surrounding.

You'll notice that the Asc/Desc and Mc/Ic axes are very near those of DC's natal chart, so it's a pretty slam-dunk situation as far as planetary placements are concerned...and an important time in the VP's life esp considering what he chose to do with it. (DC = Dick Cheney.)

With Mars, planet of conflict, violence, and quarrels directly over their heads, the hunting party members were expressing a Mars function perfectly, quarrels or no, because Mars also rules firearms. But with Mars at DC's natal Mc, and factoring in his Uranus nearby, a couple of midpoint pictures are then formed at 6:30 pm:

Mars/Ura = Mc: getting one's way; taking drastic measures; the sense of either/or; putting a gun to someone's head. (Well, in a sense he did, even if it was an accident.)

Ura/Mc = Mars: upping the tempo; temperamental drive for ego recognition; argumentative and challenging; rash action.

There are several other planetary placements we could discuss, but let's move on to the asteroids' archetypal contacts, which may be illuminating. (But remember the Sun was conj veiling Neptune at the Unmasking degree a few days ago--plus you see that DC's just before having a Venus Return in Capricorn, 5th house of Romance and Speculative Ventures. Venus in Cap indicates a stable or longterm relationship, but one which may be somewhat constricting.)

On the Nodal axis>>NN = the path forward, SN = where one's been (or the Unconscious past), Sigma (the scribe or writer) is conj SN--Cheney stated today that there were no press or pr staff with him--and opposite there are 3 asteroids at NN--

Diana, the Huntress = survival; self-protection, or where one expects absolute respect and obedience as if he/she were divine...and Diana is intolerant of "lesser types"...

Bacchus = the addiction syndrome, esp when related to the denial, substitution, or management of uncomfortable emotions; seeking ecstasy through direct experience or passion (Bacchus being the Roman version, Dionysus being the Greek--and this does have shades of Greek tragedy etched upon it)...and

Atlantis = abuse of power; where one feels doomed--Atlantis is 8+ degrees from meeting up with tr NN, but is on DC's natal 8th cusp to the degree...8th house = legacies, other peoples' money, credit, insurance, debt, sex, transformation, shared income including the control and investment of others' money, what you feel others deserve, investigation, power over others, the sharing of resources, the occult, the eliminating of nonessentials.

And asteroid, Nemesis, has just arisen in 12th house of hidden things...
Nemesis = conscience, tendency to attribute fault or blame, Achilles Heel.
Key phrase: source of blame.

And Nemesis is opposite the setting Sun...seems as if someone was blaming someone else...or each other. And firing, it was said, into the setting Sun. But it wasn't the Sun's fault. He just didn't call out as he approached. And they had to call off Sunday's hunt. It just wasn't seemly, if you will.

(I tend to think the Leo Moon in the behind-the-scenes 12th house represents DC's hunting partner, with Venus in Cap as Mrs C. You see Moon near Saturn, the boss, in the hidden 12th.)

Well, I wanted to ignore the 2 nasty Fixed Stars that are at Mc...one conj Mc, and the other conjunct Mars. But I can't:

Capulus at Mc = intense male energy, sexual passsion, turbulence, strong feelings, "to lose one's head", focused, penetrating, and clear actions, or hastiness and ruthlessness. This hard-to-manage Star has an association with blindness...including blind jealousy, and with the eyesight of the hunter.

This Star has been very active of late, and is much-used in Middle Eastern Astrology. (They've been at it a lot longer than Westerners have, too...and btw--Capulus is quite near the Great Conj of Jupiter/Saturn of May 28, 2000, mentioned previously in relation to Dems + Repubs getting together...they are now at the waxing square--the crisis-in-action phase...next exact contact = June 22,'06, and last/3rd contact = Oct 25,'06.)

And, more bad news...sitting upon contentious Mars, there is fearsome Algol, one of the most powerful Stars in the sky--it's described in Arabia as "the head of the dragon" or "the devil's wife"...and in China, Algol's keywords are: "piled-up corpses."

Algol indicates a strong, consuming passion, may involve an unconscious compulsion for revenge, describes ruthless destruction if not well-handled, and its keywords are: intense female energy and passion.

One more Fixed Star is connected to Mercury (6:30 pm on this date is a Mercury-ruled hour, so Mercurial things hold sway such as messages, or communictions):

Deneb Adige = strong will; strong temper; or a willingness to become aware. (From the first moment I heard of this, I had a "someone was told news they didn't want to hear" feeling--and of course, we may never know the full truth.)

Now for a couple of midpoint pictures which formed at 6:30 pm:

Plu/Mc = Ura: impatience; nervousness; sudden changes; publicity; rewards; a sudden attainment of one's aims with irresistible force; restlessness; sudden occupational changes.

Sat/Ura = Mc: rebellion; provocation; separating oneself from others; breaking away from the old; recognition of one's thrust for individuality, or loss of self to the grip of controls.

Nep/Mc = NN: difficult relationships; peculiarities; sharing of bad intentions with others; bad company; unpleasant associations.

Well, there's more to say, esp since I have Mr Whittington's birth date (but no time, of course, and I must assume he was born somewhere in Texas--if you know where, please let me know!), yet I've had as much of this Gorgon's head as I care to fiddle with tonight.

As you see, it was a passionate time on the Ranchero that evening, and I hope all the above is unapplicable...for the sake of America, if not for the participants, who are, as are we all, the authors of their own fates.

jc Feb 15 2006 7:11 pm est

MORE>>2.16.06> 2:23 pm: Didn't mention yesterday that in the chart for Saturday, Mercury is in NODAL degree, signifying a karmic or fated situation.

And with Mercury conj Fixed Star, Deneb Adige ("strong will; strong temper") it seems that someone's temper may have gotten the best. (Chiron is also in Nodal degree...the "performer of a mystery play" degree.)

Being a Saturnian astrologer, when I use words like "karmic", I refer to unconscious and possibly neurotic behavior which was a useful defense when first developed, but no longer brings the hoped-for results. (As a Saturnian, I don't mess around with the "past life" stuff, but with heredity and genetics.)

So "karmic" is the reap-what-you-sow condition of our dualistic world...a natural law we're all subject to, and is described in the chart by, among other things, the South Node of the Moon (SN).

We tend to "fall back" on this behavior 'cos it's easy, and it often represents an inherited talent or ability.

And on one level, the Moon herself represents the Unconcious, our heredity, and our habits...and, as you know>>habits = character, which = karma!

As John Lithgow said in 'Buckaroo Bonzai': Character is what you are when you are in the dark!

Is Whittington feeling lucky?

If you must be shot, it's good to be shot by a VP with the gold standard in medical care immediately available and ongoing.

If Mr Whittington had to depend on Medicare and Cheney'n'Crew's new prescription drug plan, he'd be a goner by now.

And how do you hide a lady Swiss Ambassador in plain sight...by shooting the guy next to her? Did Mrs Cheney know who was on this quail-hunt with her husband?

If not, she does now. Seems Dick could've found an better way to spill the pepper.

Ben's 1st Fedhead Shout Out

Tomorrow, 9:30 am, as Ben Bernanke straightens his tie for his first statement as head of the Federal Reserve Bank, the midpoint between the Sun and Midheaven (Sun/Mc = "the goal or objective") has Chiron at their midpoint, at 5AQ41, in 10th house of Career/Public Status/Aspirations.

"6AQ": "A masked figure performs ritualistic acts in a mystery play." (DR)

Keynote: The individual's involvement in long-established patterns of activity aiming at the release of collective power. The individual is seen to have assumed TRANSPERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

(This is also the Medina Degree--so-named because spiritual Neptune was upon it when Islam began.)

Or, if you prefer the almost passed, unconscious or shadowed degree of "5AQ" (= US natal SN--business and entanglements from the past; old issues; mastered talents):

"A council of ancestors is seen implementing the efforts of a young leader."

Keynote: The Root foundation of past performances which power and sustain whatever decision is made in a crisis by an individual. This degree suggests that in many situations RELIANCE UPON PRECEDENTS will enable the aspirant to greatness to tap the power of his deepest roots.

And while he's tappin' those roots, Venus, associated with money and with values, is sitting niftily upon the Uranus/Neptune conjunction degree of the NWO Chart...

Ura/Neptune = Venus: peculiar relationships; an extremely high sensitivity; fantasy life.

Uran/Nep>"18Cap": "The Union Jack flag flies from a British warship."

Keynote: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.

This degree brings us the realization of the ambivalence of POLITICAL POWER, its values, and its dangers. The need for protection may be in evidence--or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage.

When used negatively this degree is "smug or strong-armed paternalism."

Well, it'd be great to believe the horse isn't outta the barn on THAT one, but sadly, I don't think so (see my NWO post.)

And in 4th house--the base or foundation of the chart for this Congressional and Senatorial day...is Rx Saturn 6 Leo 23..still within orb of Bush's natal Ascendant.

Well, George did the nominating, but of course he was just following orders.

Have you heard that Dick Cheney is a real wheeler-dealer on Wall St? At 9:30 am tomorrow, Mars 28Tau51 is in 1st house, and will rise as chart-ruler, applying to a square with Pluto, then a trine with the Moon. Mars has Cheney's natal Mc in tow, y'might say. So after some blockage--Mars square Pluto...it's onto a lovely trine with the Moon. So I would expect the publicity to be helpful to Mr Bernanke's chairmanship, at least for now.

Yep, Bernanke's sure to be affable and obliging, and he certainly shares objectives in this 'mystery play', for secret arrangements have been made before they begin.

Yet there's a "ruthless" influence to the day, as well as vocational success for someone--Bernanke well fits this description. Actually there's deception afoot, too, and the "mystery play" sounds like a veiling tactic or perhaps just the usual and secretive who's-really-in-charge pile o'merde by a secret society or two that pull the strings...

...and so some are marionettes, and some are behind the curtain.

And for Ben Bernanke, Feb 15th is Showtime.

The Progression of Dick Cheney 2006

Set to Feb 13, 2006, 9:30 am, at the dingy White House, here's a peek at VP Cheney's Secondary Progressed chart (sec).

You'll see his sec Moon squooshed between Pluto and Chiron--the combo of Plutocracy--and Moon in a leader's chart representing the Public or Publicity, since Mr Cheney is our VP, last I heard.

Sec Moon is handy for timing issues, and this Moon is reflecting Cheney's Plutocratic tendencies to the Public. To the point of shooting a man? Well, it is and will be a diverting gem for the media, and for bloggers everywhere.

I tend to think the story is less important because he wasn't on the business end, but that's just me and most of the world...man bites dog, etc.

When sec Moon reaches Pluto, as it will in a couple of months (sec Moon advances about a degree per month), we have such things as zeal, intense self-application, or upheavals and exaggerated new plans. Seems he'd be tiring of that by now with his weak heart and all. Actually, the Moon is associated with the physical body generally, and Pluto with convulsions, spasms, and possibly attacks...and Leo with the heart and spine.

In sec 7th house, there's another trio...

Saturn/Uranus = Jupiter: losses; damages; a fortunate release form tensions; a sudden turn in destiny. The Sat/Ura combo is associated with tension, separation, and irritability in general, and Jupiter, though often benefic, can also increase the negative stuff, too. So we'll see if this 'peppering' situation over the weekend results in a release from tension for our gun-totin', quail-shootin' mighty hunter.

You're lookin' at that great honkin' Mars opposite Pluto, aren't you? So am I, and considering his weekend bout with violence, however accidental it may have been, the opposition is standing out like a sore thumb on a loose trigger.

Mars/Pluto = superhuman power; force; brutality. And Mars to Plu = extreme force; persuasion; control; brutality; excessive effort. Some repetition there, but it only emphasizes the themes...and I'd noticed these themes in his chart a while back, but assumed the War would fit the bill without guns going off willy-nilly in Texas.

Plus, Scorpio Rising is something of a Mars/Pluto signature, too, as you know.

Here are the Images for his current (sec) Sun Ari/Moon Cancer personality blend (which has difficulty handling personal criticism, btw):

A child in a fit of petulant fury runs away from home...a lightening storm at sea gives way to a peaceful, radiant dawn...The Salvation Army.

Now I'm not going to say anything about deceptive Neptune near NN, esp with NN's connection to the Public. (He has the same combo in his natal chart, and they've not progressed much, as you can see.) Obviously, he's been able to use the veiling perceptual screen Neptune affords to hide in plain sight, if you will.

On to a very interesting type of chart--the Minor progr'd...I call it the Minor.
Have you heard of it? It symbolizes the mental plane, and can tell us what's trying to rise from the Unconscious into the Consciousness. It describes our thought processes as we're becoming aware of them, assuming that we are, but can remain unconscious in the barely conscious type of personality. Others in our environment can be quite aware of them, however, either positively or negatively.

If you're familiar with the 27:13:1 ratio>>the Minor is the 27 because we think 27 times faster than we act.

The 13 is the Tertiary progr'd...the Tert, I call it, which is the emotional or intuitional, or spiritual plane. So we have a thought, we have a feeling or intuition about the thought, then we act, or it affects us physically. Bad explanation, I guess, but I want to give you the midpoint pictures for the VP's current Minor chart for tomorrow morning...kinda takes the lid off his brain, but I interpret because his brain is there:

Mars/Plu = Asc: daring and temerity; desire to face danger; aggression; the fighter who dares the impossible; an accident. (Uh-huh...Mars/Pluto again.)

Mars/Mc = Uranus: the big push; the quick advance; winning right away; argumentative; inflamed; becoming furious; rash action; quick temper; unexpected setbacks (sounds like trouble in toyland...or make that bubbleland.)

Ven/Asc = Neptune: fooling oneself about personal popularity; immoral conduct; an undermining activity; falsehood in associations.

Merc/Asc = Nep: thinking badly of others; deception, falsehood, calumny, slander or libel; being disappointd or deceived by others; open to deception.

Jup/Mc = Saturn: cautious pursuit of opportunity; discontent; a happy change.

Sat/Plu = Mars: ruthlessness; assault; violence; fighting battles to keep life going; enormous undercurrent of frustration; a gun with a cork in its barrel (apparently not.)

And last, but never least>>the NWO pair, Ura/Nep with powerful Pluto:

the big picture demands a certain course of action which must be followed--very little option to do otherwise; catastrophes; the necessity to give in; great losses; calamities.

Well, the pictures aren't pretty, and I'm not sure a look into this man's thought processes will be helping me sleep well tonight. But I thought you might want to know. I like to share.

Pepper Cheney's Collateral Damage

Who could resist a mention of VP Cheney's Shotgun Weekend from PR hell?

Poor Harry Whittington, victim of Cheney's undoubtedly bad mood from the prospect of being investigated for leaking national secrets (after Dick's previous chiding of others for supposedly doing same) seems to have paid the price for Someone's Bad Mood.

The VP's mask is definitely cracking, and the roaches are crawling out. And you know I was with Jon Stewart from the beginning, who early on called Cheney a "murderous cyborg" who "eats puppies." Yeah, and shoots lawyers when distracted by political woes, it seems. For all I know, he shoots them at will, if you will.

So just what IS the Bush administration coming to? A crossroads? A brick wall? An international criminal court? (I'm kiddin'--they've got that one sewn up already.)

Is Cheney's aim that bad, or did he hit the target? Does he have it in for attorneys who tell him what he doesn't want to hear, or is Whittington simply hapless around guns and VPs?

If the end is in the beginning--and it is, Republican denial aside--I suspect the Bush administration, which began under murky, contentious circumstances, will be ending much the same, if not worse...shotgun blasts notwithstanding.

Wonder if Dick enjoyed his quail stew supper? Somehow I doubt it, don't you?

Orwell and the WTC Attack 9.11.01

There are many things to say about this comparison between George Orwell's natal chart and the attack/s of 9/11/01, NYC. (Here using Orwell's generally-accepted birth time of 11:30 am LMT which has a decent B rating--and which gives Virgo Rising, esp considering his health problems and fairly early death.)

Here are some highlights...or should I say, lowlights?

9/11/01>>With Mercury (air travel) rising 14Lib17 (conj US natal Saturn--authority) on that obscene day, we see it near Orwell's ("GO") North Node (NN), which points to destiny or to the path one is on. (GO's Mars is nearby, also in his 1st house.)

And it's difficult to miss the pile-up in GO's 10th house--top o'the chart, with 9/11 Moon (publicity; the public) near his Mc, and an even closer aspect between 9/11 NN to GO's Neptune, a planet connected with receptivity and impressionability. (His Neptune in Cancer = spiritual perception; sensitivity; a deeply feeling nature.)

Plus, 9/11 NN is very near conjunction with GO's 'Sun conj Moon'--his natal Moon is just before New Moon, the Balsamic phase mentioned earlier today...the prophet.

In 9th house, we see GO's Mercury/Pluto--the combo of these two = the art of persuasion; suggestion; good powers of observation; sharp criticism; wielding influence through speaking or writing. The other George--Bush--has these two planets conjunct in his 1st house, so there ya go. And tr Saturn is about to stomp upon them,
Merc/Plu = Sat: exposure to bitter attacks; irritability; skepticism; quarrels; separation.) And so, with GO's chart and 9/11, and with Bush 2006, we see the same picture!

Before now, you've noticed that 9/11 Venus, triggering the "King of Terror" Eclipse degree of 8/11/99, is conjunct GO's Venus, 1 degree+ orb. Using "18Leo" as the 1999 Eclipse degree:

"18Leo:>>"A chemist conducts an experiment for his students." ALCHEMY.

Keynote: In inquiring into the hidden process of nature, the human mind experiences the thrill of discovery. (DR)

The MEJ* version gives this neg/shadow side interpretation: unintelligent dependence on supposition or on the rules of the book.

Or, if you prefer "19Leo", the neg/shadow side: thoughtless self-indulgence and contempt for the general welfare. (That last sounds more'n'more familiar as the misguided Bush ship careens on, doesn't it?)

Now for one more thing--at the foundation of the chart/s, we see that on 9/11/01, transiting Chiron, the Wound and Blindspot, is sitting upon GO's Uranus at 23Sag, and you know, lone reader, about the Chiron-Uranus combo from a previous post.

Rudhyar's version of "23Sag">> "A group of immigrants as they fulfill the requirements of entrance into a new country."

Keynote: Consciously accepting the ways of a new stage of experience, in readiness for the opportunities it will present. (Yep.)

This describes an inevitable ordeal--a threshold...and everything that will follow depends largely on how it is crossed, and on the spirit in which we meet unfamiliar and perhaps shocking experiences. We find ourselves in a period of TRANSITION. We have to imitate, yet retain our inner integrity.

MEJ's version>>"23Sag"...neg: a surrender of the real in a pursuit of the false.

Given the Chiron-Uranus Types we now have infesting the US government and their lack of respect for borders, this comes as no surprise to me.

How about you? Surprised?

Astrological Facts on George + Propaganda

There are three personal name asteroids related to Mr Bush's natal chart.

They are asteroid, George, at 7-8 Aries, and asteroid, Georgia, at 6 Aries. The transiting North Node of the Moon has been pointing to them this year. NN, as you know, has a joining quality, and is the path or destiny in a chart. Seems the Universe has been pointing its wand at our George, such as he is. (Do ya think he's wandering about the White House at night talking to portraits yet?)

Also asteroid, Guernica, at 24 Aries, is conjunct Bush's natal Midheaven--the most visible point in any chart--the Aspirations/Public Status Point...the highest we may aim for.

Wonder if Picasso would be miffed?

2.10.06 4:53 pm est

And>>Bush's natal Ascendant degree "8Leo" (the man himself) has this Symbol:

"A bolshevik propagandist."

Did you know that? Here's Rudhyar's* interpretation:

"A Communist activist spreading his revolutionary ideals." Keynote: The emotional and ideological attempt to return to a state of non-differentiation and chaos as a prelude to a new type of order.

>>>Hold onto your ethics seminar, 'cos here's the rest:

The old order is confronted by the youthful drive for a new way of life and a new sense of values. As the old order refuses to yield its prerogatives, this refusal polarizes violent revolutionary action.

The revolutionary may have beautiful dreams of a "classless" society free of greed and harsh struggles for survival, but the first practical result of his activity almost inevitably appears as "chaos."

Yet chaos is a state of being that calls for a new descent of the power to reorganize and differentiate. Alas, such a descent most often is still based on old concepts, and one witnesses a struggle for personal and dictatorial power.

Ideally it could show how the vision of a cosmic order might heal the potential conflict between an obsolete Establishment and its youthful challengers. But reality today presents a more cruel picture of CATABOLIC ACTION. #

So you see, the chaos and the polarization induced--no, increased--by the Bush administration are exactly what was planned all along, and is one of the reasons I said all along that the "cons vs libs" illusion is just that--a polarizing ploy used by globalists to get their agenda rammed down the world's throat, and to keep the sheeple busy.

Don't buy into it and do the world a big favor--stop playing that game--for it really is an "elite" vs the masses attack going on under our noses, and the New World Order is perking right along as per their plans.

Think "Pluto/Chiron"...Plutocracy, class warfare, and racism. And remember the Symbol for the Uranus/Neptune conjunction in the NWO Chart of 1993--POLITICAL POWER>>>"smug and strong-armed paternalism."

>>>Those born during the Balsamic phase of the Moon--just before the New Moon--are often prophetically inclined. And who do we know who was born during that phase? Why, George Orwell, of course. And just who was president in 1984?

Get Your US Constitution While Ya Can

Well, here is the natal chart for the US Constitution. She favors her mum'n'dad, doncha think?

Images for Sun Vir/Moon Sag: a bespectacled librarian locks the door and transforms into Superwoman...an anthropology class goes on a field trip.

Greatest Strengths: Understanding and improving life is what you're all about; fine intellect; ingenuity and perception of essentials; realism + optimism; ready to help, serve, and guide.

Greatest Weaknesses: desire for "reasonable" answers in the face of human suffering; lack of empathy which tends to judge those who appear to live without guiding ideals; moral certitude.

Her secondary progressed chart for Feb 2006--

Images for Sun Tau/Moon Sag: a monk* builds a cathedral whilst contemplating the infinite reaches of the universe...the prodigal son returns to the home farm...Balzac's La Comedie humaine...Brahm's Violin Concerto.

Greatest Strengths: common sense + inventive imagination; enthusiasm + practical politics; a good, but sometimes wild, business sense; inspired flair + a matter of fact realism...(similar to her natal abilities, for now anyway...is there a ray of hope that she'll survive?)

Greatest Weaknesses: infuriating unreliability just when you seem to have mended your restless ways (uh-oh); reluctance to be tied down; instability (ugh and then some.)

An interesting and/or worrisome note: her Solar Arc Pluto (Solar Arc directed is where all planets and points are moved forward 1 degree for each year since birth--she was 218 years old last September, so 218 degrees, then compare to natal or progr'd charts for conjunctions, etc)...SA Pluto (23Vir05) to natal Sun (24Vir39) =

powerful force creates major change; identity transformation; sudden prominence.

That'll be exact about a year from now, and the wheels are now in motion, as we know.
(SA Pluto crossed her natal Mc in 2001, and you'll remember a transformative experience that year. And what Pluto transforms is never again the same, plus Pluto crossing a chart's angle is a major occurrence.)

Another icky conjunction is from SA Mars in a couple of years--SA Mars to natal Pluto...extreme force; persuasion; control; brutality; excessive effort. (Mars combined with Pluto also has a zealous influence, as if the world needs more o'that.)

>>Shout-Out to expert astrologer and Jungian psychologist, Dr Noel Tyl, for Solar Arc info. Noel has also championed Quindecile aspect analysis (165 degress = an aspect of obsession-compulsion.) He's author of many weighty books on astrology, including one on medical astrology you might wish to wade through, if you dare!

Now some would call this a side note, but I think the midpoint of heavyweights Saturn and Pluto should be watched at all times. In recent days, and ongoing a while longer, their transiting midpoint has been hanging out around 17Lib+, which, if you will notice, is sitting just upon natal Neptune--and these are always a difficult trio for sure.

Sat/Plu = Nep: lies; fraud; falsehoods; secret desire to harm others; danger through water, poison, or gas. (Sounds like Wednesday when Senators' offices had to be evacuated because 'nerve gas' was suspected.)

(BTW--tr Sat/Plu will soon be upon George Bush's natal Jup 18Lib09...Sat/Nep = Jup: religious/social fanaticism; difficulties caused through illness; sacrifice; trouble with authority; trying to save what's left...

...plus, Sat/Plu is still affecting Bush's natal Moon 16Lib42: rigidity or coldness of feeling; a tragic destiny; renunciation. So with tr Saturn on natal Asc and about to bowl over his Mercury, Pluto, and Venus--in first house of Self--it's already a bumpy ride getting bumpier for Mr Bush, and sadly, for America, as I've previously stated.)

But back to US Constitution: transit Neptune now at the Unmasking degree, has been bouncing between natal Pluto (14AQ12) and progr'd Pluto (17AQ35) for some time now...Neptune to Pluto =

unusual problems; possible concerns about death matters; peculiar experiences; creative enterprises.

And you may have noticed that US Constitution is just before having sec prog'd Moon conjunct natal Moon--the closing of one era or cycle and the beginning of a new one, and relating to the populace...which means that progr'd Moon is at the same degree as natal Moon, thereby emphasizing it. (Her progr'd Sun 3Tau32 is conj the Discovery Degree of Chiron, I might add. Just did..."4Tau" = "Rainbow's pot of gold.")

The Sabian Symbol (DR's version) for her Moon, "5Sag" = "An old owl sits alone on the branch of a large tree."

Sounds plenty smart enough, and one-of-kind...let's hope she doesn't lose her poise and fall off.

Keynote: a poised and wise approach to existence based on a clear perception of unconscious factors and their operation. (The 'Greatest Weaknesses' above would fit into the 'unconscious' category.)

Ah hah! Well, we know someone was wise when they wrote and birthed her--now let's see if we can keep her in her place high above America, shall we?

Pro-Congress Expert Louis Fisher

If you haven't, read the Wall St Journal article on a certain expert on Congress' powers who's claiming he's being muzzled by the White House, and on other administration Orwellian highhandedness against whistle-blowers and anyone else who disagrees with the Bush administration's overreaching power.

WSJ refused my link, so you'll have to look for it--I hope you will because it's ver-r-r-y interestink...entitled:

Expert on Congress's Power Was Muzzled by White House

Not sure about that extra 's' on Congress, but there ya go.

Seems Louis Fisher, a 36-year veteran researcher at the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service and an expert on separation of powers, is being muzzled because he's given interviews and written articles criticizing the Bush administration's policies.

Fisher's writings are considered the 'gold standard', but George doesn't like to be dissed, as you know...especially if you know what you're talking about.

His expert opinion is that Congress is being overly defferential to the administration's efforts to punish whistle-blowers or otherwise suppress information.

Gonzales: Bowling for Freedom with Saturn

Finally got a chart uploaded--hope you all are blogging again after a droopy weekend with Blogspot.

Here's this morning's Stars/Planets over the Capitol Building, with little Al Gonzales (AG, I'll call him) having a "conversation" with the guys. I can't call it testimony, since Specter gave him a no-oath free pass...wonder who brokered that deal? The session began today with this midpoint picture up above:

Sun/Mars = NN: teamwork; confederation and association in working or fighting for a certain objective. (Hmm-m-m...in league, are they?)

Testy, fussy Mars is the chart ruler, as we see, and his applying aspects for the day are:

1.inconjunct Pluto (spying; manipulation; power, esp the behind-the-throne kind)
2.square Sun (leadership; purpose). Inconjunct = major adjustment; square = obstacle; blockage.

So if the politicians infesting the Capitol Building are serious about putting the kibosh on Bush's unchecked spying power, perhaps they'll actually do something about the Bush-Gonzo team...or perhaps not.

In AG's natal chart (using Sunrise--no birth time known thus far, Aug 4, 1955), he has a very interesting midpoint picture which seems to apply to his governmental work and major suck-up ability:

Pluto/NN = Neptune: power of the half-truth; win at any cost; deception as a tool.
(And you don't need to know a birth time for this one--slow-movers all.)

(When I combined or "averaged" his chart in with today's 9:30 am chart, it showed the same picture! Seems there's a lot of that going around, and Al's right there in the midst, isn't he? And good at it, too, as we've seen...a natural ability!

Plus...transit Pluto has been dancing with his natal NN--a joining or meeting point, so Al's been hangin' with the powerful, and meets a few more o'them today for a 'power chat'.)

So due to Blogger's downtime, and my limited time today, I'll just mention a notable fact--transit Saturn of control, restriction, and harsh-light-of-reality fame, has been plowing through/conjuncting a planetary line-up in AG's natal chart as of July, 2005. In order:

1.Uranus 28 Cancer 51
2.Venus 4 AQ01
(today-->Saturn 7Leo05 Rx, on Bush's natal Asc)
3.Mercury 10Leo31
4.Jupiter 11Leo11*
5.Sun 11 Leo34* (*Sun conj Jup = the salesman...expands the ego and goals)
6.Mars 15Leo34
7.Pluto 25Leo59!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is quite an alley of bowling pins for Saturn to either knock down or strengthen, as the case may be, and the fun doesn't actually end (as Saturn leaves the vicinity) until at least Aug 2007.

Now George Bush, as you know, has his own ongoing game with Saturn affecting his chart--conjunct natal Ascendant today--then back to Mercury, then Venus, and Pluto. Sheesh! That's a lot of reality for an idealist to swallow whole hog. Remember when Bush kinda sorta apologized after Katrina? Saturn conj Asc.

More later, if Blogger agrees AN-N-ND if the impending ice/snow storm doesn't get us tonight!

jc Feb 6 2006 12:45 pm est

ps: almost forgot to mention--Neptune being highlighted by the Sun's rays...at the Unmasking degree--all day long...Sun and Neptune in 10th house of both Bush Inauguation Charts. So there ya go, George.

Bush Can Too Spy, Says Roberts

Senate Intelligence Committe Chairman, Pat Roberts, wrote a 19-page letter upholding Bush's snooping ability...touting Bush's inherent power under the Constitution.

Bringing George Washington back from his grave to bolster Bush's position, Roberts said that presidents from Geo Washington to GWB have intercepted communications to ascertain enemy threats to national security. Poor George--and he was resting so well.

It's not the protection of national security at issue--no sane American denies it needs protecting--it's what ELSE George, with his power obsession and his win-at-any-cost mentality might do with such draconian privileges.

Bush's use of the politics-of-personal-destruction mixed with his inability to face his critics straightforwardly--and the fact that he HAS so many critics--forms more the ugly image of a greedy ideologue protecting his turf (in tandem with legitimate national security efforts), more than a picture of a valiant, "homeland"-protecting commander-in-chief.

Sheeple who believe this goose-stepping, 19-page, heil of allegiance, will one day wish they'd paid more attention.

Perhaps I should resurrect Washington myself--publish his natal chart and see what's shaking with it. Out-of-town company about to arrive, so I'll have to do it over the weekend...it could be very illuminating concerning present circumstances, so stay tuned!

Dueling T-Shirts Over America

Just before the State of the Union Address began last evening, Cindy Sheehan was ejected in handcuffs--being the ruffian she is--from the gallery for wearing a T-shirt that read, "2245 Dead: How Many More?". Seems a fair question, but I guess not.

I'm sure the Bush Team wouldn't approve of having a camera light upon Ms Sheehan's bossomy question, ya think? But if only side-lined Tom DeLay had been wearing a T-shirt for the event (how about the formerly popular, "I'm With Stupid"?)... he might've garnered more limelight.

Here's her natal chart surrounded by the Address Chart...with Bush's actual start time of 9:12 pm--wonder if he held back to make sure Ms Sheehan, and Beverly Young
(wife of Rep C W Bill Young of FL--Repub!) who was also ejected, were out of his hair and sight range? I thought he was suspiciously late starting.

(Mrs Young was ejected as Bush was speaking about our troops, and her "offensive"
T-shirt said, "Support Our Troops Defending Our Freedom". Seems odd that the Bush Team is against ALL T-shirts, or perhaps just ALL bossoms that compete for our attention to George's message. Some folk think it would've been an improvement. We knew before last night that Bush can't compete unless the playing field is slanted his way...apparently he can't fight his way out of a T-shirt either.)

So here is Ms Sheehan's North Node (NN = a meeting or joining point) being contacted by Jupiter, the moneybags, judge, big guy of the zodiac. And her natal Jupiter is rising as the speech begins...Jupiter expands, of course, and Jup/Asc = desire to be of importance in the world. (Well, none of my state Reps gave Me a ticket, now did they?)

Mercury is just about to contact her wound, Chiron--wounded communications, or communcations about the wound. (Mercury's orbit is about one year, so this happens once a year to all of us as Mercury contacts all our planets.) Her right to speak out--even with a T-shirt message--was wounded, all right.

And at the top of the chart, in full sight of the world, is transit Saturn (control; restriction; loss) who is, and has been recently, visiting her Uranus, planet of freedom and rebellion. Saturn's orbit is about 28-30 years long, so we all get his visitations upon our planets/chart points at least a couple of times, if we last that long...three times if we live to a ripe old age. And this conj of Saturn to her Uranus is also Saturn's conjunction to Bush's natal Asc, previously posted upon...a low point in the life when past chickens--or in his case, chickenhawks--come home to roost. So Cindy's Uranus, also called, The Awakener, has been trying to wake up George's chickenhawks to their true responsibility for his past actions!

>>Saturn to natal Uranus = circumstances conspire to restrict personal independence and freedom. Unorthodox methods do not meet with enthusiasm, and may be rejected completely by those who insist on more structure and tradition. Group endeavors are apt to be bogged down by red tape and delays, but the key is not to give up--you may be given more responsibilities in group projects.

No brainer: Cindy won't be giving up, Mr Saturn, Mr Man!

As you know, Bush cleared outta Dodge this morning to continue the catapultin'. Hope Nashville holds his tootsies to the fire of truth just as Cindy Sheehan continues to do...probably fat chance.

And today's GAO report blames this administration for its miserable Katrina response, or the lack thereof. That'll give Bush something to stew over while kickin' back at the "ranch" this weekend. Wonder what T-shirt he'll be wearin'?
"I'm the Culprit"? "Hollow Legacy"? Or how about "Cindy Doesn't Speak for Me"?
