Astrology of the presidential candidates

If you're a blogger like me--doing this work to get out info rather than for money--you wonder how to find time to do full justice to Political Astrology (actually called, Mundane Astrology) especially with the upcoming 2008 election vulturing over us.

Some weeks seem to have more blogging time factored into them, other weeks...not so much.

Well, no more fretting is necessary for I've received a communique from someone with a terrific Astrology website which covers the stars--natal and current transits--of both Democratic and Republicanic candidates.

Check out The Strange House as soon as you may!

Gitmo and the cocaine plane?

Legit Gov Breaking News

Guantanamo transport plane crashes with four tons of cocaine on board --Who owned drug plane that crashed in Mexico? 27 Sep 2007:

U.S. authorities are assisting the Mexican government in the investigation of an American business jet that crashed in Cancun this week with four tons of cocaine on board, officials said Thursday. Some news reports have linked the plane to the transport of terrorist suspects to the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, but those reports cite logs that indicate only that the plane flew twice between Washington, D.C., and Guantanamo and once between Oxford, Conn., and Guantanamo.

pouting Peter Pace punted

General Peter Pace will "step down" as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff effective Monday, Oct 1. He was second in command during the Iraq invasion, as you know.

Seems his opinions irked someone--his natal chart (Nov 5, 1945; Brooklyn, NY; birth time unknown) shows him to be a principled fellow which only works with this administration as long as you're agreeing with all their views.

Following are a few of my notes on his natal chart:

A New Moon type is emotional (see below), impulsive, and subjective which is underlined by the fact that Scorpio is a Water sign and Pace is a double Water personality (or triple Water if his Ascending sign is Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces.)

Life may be lived as if it's but a dream--or merely a screen upon which to project one's image. People and events tend to become symbols without much regard for what they actually are, and the self is projected upon others and upon the world (The Lunation Cycle, Rudhyar.)

His Mars/Saturn conj in Cancer (and neither planet is comfortable in watery Cancer) indicates some fatherly restrictions on his Mars principle ("I act") and can seriously affect his self-confidence.

Hmmm...a warrior/soldier with Mars conj Saturn? this combo is like driving with the brakes on. At best it gives a serious attitude toward life and toward one's actions.

And his Jupiter/Chiron conj gives him a yearning for the mystical plus strong convictions which must be communicated. This may have gotten him in hot water if he didn't always parrot the Bush-Cheney line.

Since the Moon was in Scorpio during the 24-hour period, we may use Sco/Sco as Pace's Watery Sun/Moon personality blend. The Water/Water personality can gush with feelings and dissolve into tears with sentimentality which probably accounts for his expressed desire to go all huggy on his soldiers.

Water/Water types don't have an easy time with objectivity or with well-reasoned arguments. How they personally feel about people and situations IS their reality. They tend to cling to relationships whether it's best for them or not.

The conjunction of Jup/Chiron can be emotionally overwhelmed too--yet it's also the 'maverick with a superiority complex' and who may suffer from boundary problems (Clow, Chiron.)

Sun Sco/Moon Sco: intense; stubborn; passionate; wary--this blend is uncompromising with its convictions. This can be the quiet rebel due to a mistrust of authority figures (Mars conj Saturn suports this); sheer drive and stamina with astute observational ability added to loyalty but may become vindictive when threatened (perhaps we have another Bush-bashing book on the way?)

Greatest Weaknesses: suspicions and cynicism limit capacity for life's enjoyments; takes oneself too seriously; reluctance to share fears; desire for revenge; may get stuck in negative emotions.

Images for Integration: A pile of manure slowly permeates the deeper soil as the November rains soak the still, dark garden...A millionaire businessman establishes a foundation for medical research.

Interesting word pictures.

If you click the chart to enlarge you'll see these midpoint pictures listed which are in effect no matter the birth time:

Uranus/Neptune = Pluto: the big picture demands a certain course of action which must be followed--very little option to do otherwise (this pic was an influence for the 9/11 attacks, imho); inclination to remain at the mercy of external conditions and circumstances without taking a firm stand; abandoning resistance; calamities, catastrophes; an easily-impressed person.

Mercury/Pluto = Neptune: over-receptivity; pursuit of peculiar plans; cunning; falsehood; slander and defamation (as with every factor in Astrology and in life, these may operate in both directions); overdoing issues drains energy and wears out one's welcome (is this part of his "stepping down"?)

Venus/Neptune = Jupiter: extremely emotional; a painful renunciation.

Pace's Pre-natal Eclipse Series (PE) is 1 North (1N) which is the same Series in which the Mother of All Eclipses occurred--Nostradamus' King of Alarm Eclipse which manifested on August 11, 1999 and basically began our 'New Millenium' along with the Pluto/Chiron conjunction of Dec 30, 1999.

Brady's Predictive Astrology gives the 1N Series as: unexpected events loom large--avoid hasty decisions since information may be distorted and possibly false.

Sounds like Washington's favorite way of doing things lately, doesn't it?

Here's the Wiki bio on him if you please.

Pace's New Moon personality is shared natally by: Lyndon B. Johnson, Woodrow Wilson, Queen Victoria, Clara Barton, and Gamal Nasser.

Plutocracy and Ron Paul

Ron Paul fights plutocracy but I don't see how much further he can get, do you?

genomes of the evil gnomes?

Ethnic weapons is a collection of several articles which were brought to my attention some months ago and which I've just today gotten round to reading.


Thanks to the Anonymous commenter for the link.

And on second thought, perhaps what I thought was a biased comment last week is connected to the research mentioned above...the comment concerned hive collapse disorder being an "Israeli virus."

a coup has occurred

'A Coup Has Occurred'

By Daniel Ellsberg

If there's another 9/11 under this regime ... it means that they switch on full extent all the apparatus of a police state that has been patiently constructed, largely secretly at first but eventually leaked out and known and accepted by the Democratic people in Congress, by the Republicans and so forth.

Ellsberg's article from Information Clearing House, police state brought to you by the New World Order folks and their friends.

There were catcalls for Robert Gates today on Capitol Hill? Excellent!!! Does us no good, but excellent all the same. The $450 billion the US has already spent on Iraq has not made the US "safer" (as Senator Bird said)--"safer" would be difficult since the coup is happening from within with the foxes guarding the you-know-what!

Yes, the bankrupting of America was on display once again today in Washington, m'peops, as per George W. Bush's instructions. You may not be a conspiracy theorist now but when military rule is declared and America is financially bereft as written, you'll say Doh! I should've paid more attention.

We the people must prevail or America shall disappear into the dustbin of history with an underhanded boost from the European hierarchies. Just don't say you didn't know.

more on tonight's Aries Full Moon

Space Weather News for Sept. 26, 2007

HARVEST MOON: There's a full Moon tonight (Wed., Sept. 26) and it has a special name--the "Harvest Moon," the full Moon closest to the autumnal equinox. In the days before electric lights, farmers relied on moonlight to help them gather ripening autumn crops. The bright Harvest Moon allowed their work to continue late into the night. Now, post-Edison, we appreciate the Harvest Moon more for its beauty than its utility. Moonrise happens tonight at sunset; look east and enjoy the view!

AURORA WATCH: Northern fall has begun with a vibrant flourish of green--that is, green Northern Lights. A solar wind stream hit Earth on Sept. 21st sparking an intense, three-day display of polar auroras. Get ready for more: Another solar wind stream is due on Sept. 27th or 28th.

Aries Full Moon 9.26.07

Wednesday's Full Moon 3Aries20 (3:45 pm edt) is in 2nd house of money when set for the White House, with Sun 3Lib20 in 8th house of other people's money. Asking for more millions for Iraq? Fluctuations (Moon) in earning ability (such as the UAW strikers)? It's the Resources axis, the 2/8.

Rising 24Cap16, chart-ruler Saturn 2Vir57 is in 7th house of Partnerships, legal affairs, and open enemies, along with Venus 22Leo11, still in mutual reception with the Sun.

Jupiter/MC is at "1Sag", the "A Grand Army of the Republic campfire" degree (Jones.)

Jup/MC = legalisms; success; recognition; sense of purpose.

Did I mention that the Sun is partile (exactly) conjunct one of Jayne's Hypothethetical planets, Lion? Keywords: synthesis and integration; understanding; education; civilization.

A Full Moon is the culmination of the cycle which began at the last New Moon
which was the Sept 11 Solar Eclipse when something needed releasing for progress to be made. (I say the American people release the Bush administration from further fascist tinkering under the hood of our government.)

Aries is impulsive and independent, sign of the pioneer. Libra is socially sensitive so there may be a battle between self-interests and compromise which will be most noticeable in the area of relationships (the 1/7, Ari/Lib axis.)

Libra is the sign of diplomacy so more of that--or the current lamentable lack of it--may continue to be in the news, with Aries ruled by Mars, god of war.

Perhaps Mercury's entry into secretive Scorpio on Thursday will bring intell to light which may be useful in diplomatic circles--it's what the government tends to do with intell that concerns me.

Then contentious Mars finally leaves Gemini and enters homebody Cancer's sign on Friday. Turf-protection!

Yes, Mars is finally past his opposition with Pluto but he is at 29Gem00 in the Full Moon chart--and 29 degr is a crisis degree. It also indicates that Mars is straining and impatient to enter Cancer. (Perhaps the US has had a visitor who would like to go home now...?)

The Full Moon's Mars is ruler of 10th house of Career/Public Status...16Sco56, near the "15Sco" "Eagle Point."

And Mercury, planet of communication and thinking, is at 29Lib02 in 9th house of Philosophy, Religion, Higher Education, and Foreign Travel. Mercury trines Mars within 3 minutes, but separating since Mercury is the faster-moving of the two.

9th house's natural ruler, Jupiter (13Sag38) is still within orb of US natal ASC...and Mr. Moneybags is strong and sassy in his own sign.

The only planet stressing this Full Moon in applying aspect is Neptune 19AQ34 Rx--from 1st house. But Chiron 10AQ45 Rx rises first--conj Cheney's natal Sun.

Neptune is semi-square the Moon, and sesquisquare the Sun. Both aspects are irritatingly frustrating and nagging, and can often have health connotations.

There's more info available from the excellent if you'd care to check it out.

And for Sabian Symbol details try Lynda Hills' Sabian Symbols because I'm only including an appropriate-for-DC Symbol for this Full Moon and Lynda has a lot more...

"3Ari"..."A cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country"...EXPLOITATION...

pos: man's capacity for giving full play to every ramification of the reality he has created for himself;

neg/shadow side: an unimaginative conventionality which leaves him in bondage to every current stereotype of human relations.

George hearts Hillary?


Bush quietly advising Hillary Clinton, top Democrats 24 Sep 2007 President [sic]

Bush is quietly providing back-channel advice to Hillary Rodham Clinton, urging her to modulate her rhetoric so she can effectively prosecute the war in Iraq, if elected president. In an interview for the new book "The Evangelical President," White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten said Bush wants enough continuity in his Iraq policy that "even a Democratic president would be in a position to sustain a legitimate presence there." To that end, the president has been sending advice, mostly through aides, aimed at preventing an abrupt withdrawal from Iraq in the event of a Democratic victory in November 2008. [OMG! Dictator Bush - who can't even sustain a 'legitimate presence' in the White House --is giving advice on sustaining a 'legitimate presence' in Iraq?! --LRP]#

It would be hillary-arious if it weren't so imperialistic. If legitimacy is Bush's strong suit, it's that old emperor's clothes fairytale his administration began with in 2000.

Rudy Guiliani May 28, 1944

Born in Brooklyn, NY, May 28, 1944, the Sun arose for Guiliani that day at 6Gem55 with the Moon clocking in at 19Leo23--conjunct Jupiter (Geo Bush has an expansive Moon/Jupiter conj natally in Libra.)

Since the Moon was in Leo for the 24 hours of his birthdate, we may use Sun Gem/Moon Leo for his personality blend, a blend shared by poet Walt Whitman: "I celebrate myself; I sing myself." Seems appropriate.

Sun Gem/Moon Leo (Air-Fire = a "live wire" full of exciting ideas and the ability to communicate them with zeal and enthusiasm; taken to the extreme Air-Fire = bombast, bluster, and a tendency to be carried away by own rhetoric and eloquence; has charisma and joie de vivre; with Airy Sun and Firey Moon: the effect of a hot-air balloon; a Utopian idealist seeing ever more distant sunny shores; may ride on a moralistic high horse):

This combo indicates one who is a colorful conversationalist and storyteller, convivial with a childlike sense of fun, and a good dramatist. He's good at improvisation, generous, and intellectual and he embodies the eternal child (Gem = the puer) whose fantasies of royal blood (Queen E knighted him for helping with 9/11--in precisely what capacity I do not know) ensure a confident social performance.

This blend assumes its natural right to be exactly who he is: astute and somewhat mischievous. A flair for self-dramatization may be behind his recent "phone calls from the wife" schtick which weirded out so many people during recent speeches (including his important you-can-vote-for-me speech to the NRA!)

There is a rebellious streak here as well and a fussiness which may turn up in the love life. This is a strong but not overbearing personality interested in a wide variety of human perspectives (can this trait cause the dreaded flip-flopping?)

Guiliani is a natural salesperson and "ideas person" who doesn't like to be pigeonholed (who does? unless they're a pigeon), and when it comes to big issues he tends to argue with a sense of impassioned authority.

Yes, Rudolph can be a true inspiration to others (through communication at least.)

Greatest Weaknesses: haughtiness and stubbornness which surface when feeling unappreciated; energies put into excessive socializing which keeps abilities from being fully developed; the need for flattery and for holding center-stage.

Image for Integration (Sun = conscious mind, Moon = unconscious mind--and blending them makes a whole, self-aware person):

A king holds court and surprises his audience by joining the mandolin player in a duet of song and story.

With Moon in Leo, RG's reigning need is for approval, recognition, and applause, all of which the game of politics seems to have supplied him with in abundance, with fake phone calls as part of the act.

So if you click to enlarge his natal (sunrise) chart, you'll see that all planets lie within 12Taurus--2Libra. A bowl pattern is formed which looks a bit unbalanced, doesn't it? It certainly concentrates his energies into an all-about-me view--same for George Bush's natal chart and Leonine psyche. Yet somehow I wonder if Guiliani's concentration of planets is at least partially on the partnership side of his natal chart?

With 'working class' heritage from his parents, he could have Virgo rising, couldn't he? And that would give him a very full Public hemispheric emphasis, if so.

Yet the 'empty' signs and degrees--from 3Libra through 11Taurus--have midpoints, asteroids, and South Node within them. This *blog is not written to teach Astrology (although I can't prevent it if a smidge accidentally filters though) so let's stick with a few basic things about former NYC mayor Guiliani. Besides, there are plenty of Astrology tutorials online, if you wish to study them!

Such as: his Pre-natal Eclipse Series (PE):

Occurring prior to his birth on Jan 25, 1944, this is the 18South Series which Brady's Predictive Astrology gives as:

endings, separations, and partings which could bring grief and anguish, yet these separations bring new situations and encounters which lead to positive outcomes.

This is the PE of Marilyn Monroe, btw.

The 18S Series last manifested Feb 2, 1998--during his marriage to Donna, wife #2. Its next occurrence: March 19, 2016. (Perhaps current wife Judith should be told?)

In youth Rudy considered the priesthood y'know, but it seems the romantic lay-dees won out! But can Rudy win the presidential sweepstakes in 2008?

Transit Mars has been visitng his natal Saturn, planet or authority and responsibility. This is a time of becoming more focused and organized. It's a time for careful planning. There may be dental work or minor surgery, colds or flu and obstacles encountered now are usually found to be of one's own making.

There is hurrying flavor to this transit with a touch of rebellion against the rules. Yet greater credence may be given to age or experience before taking action--it's a good time to ask advice from one's mentors.

And tr Midas has been hanging about with his Sun/Uranus conj in Gemini and possibly bankrolling his progressive political inclinations. Sun conj Uramus is free-wheeling, willful, and arrogant with its bad self. (Oops--was that a smidge of Astrology leaking through? Sorry!)

This pairing is intolerant of tradition and the social limitations that result from it--hence his three marriages, one may suppose; and Sun conj Uranus supports the "live-wire" quality already mentioned. Politics is a perfect career for a Sun/Uranus individuals, but a stable relationship is a must for keeping the natural eccentricity tamped down to acceptable-in-society levels.

Well, Hillary Rodham Clinton certainly sounded and looked presidential on the Sunday political programs yesterday, so I'd say that jolly Guiliani has a lot of issues to become more serious and better informed about asap--because empty bombast and amusing stories won't be enough--and the usual political dirty tricks have become such a bore.

Restraint! says Bush

NPR is reporting that the White House is advising the use of restraint to the Myanmar government against the protesting Buddhist monks.

Restraint!! can you imagine that no one in the White House sees the irony (or hypocrisy) in recommending what the neocons could well have used in 2003 while doing the world a big favor?

Restraint is what millions of people all over the world pleaded for Bush-Cheney to take to heart instead of boogyin' to their hotheaded drumbeat toward an oil-drenched, profit-infused war which has destabilzed the region and given a huge boost to Iran's machinations!

Wonder how things are going at Columbia U?

Mike Huckabee as president: some concerns

This post is actually being written Dec 30, 2007 as a link for Dec 30's post: Spotlight on Mercury: Mike Huckabee:

2008 candidate Mike Huckabee (Aug 24, 1955; Hope, Arkansas, birth time unknown, using sunrise 5:46:19 am CST) has a few chart factors which may be of concern given his mild manner. Is the dove really a hawk in disguise?

It has often been a wonder to me as a Christian that 'evangelicals' and other Christians seem to think that preachers belong in the White House...that church + state is a dandy idea which would solve all society's problems. Personally it sounds like the Roman state's melding with the papacy centuries ago, and does not support the traditional American ideal of their separation.

It was an excellent idea then, it's an excellent idea now.

One midpoint picture of particular concern in Mike Huckabee's natal chart (and what I discuss here will not be affected by lack of a correct birth time) is this:

Pluto/NN = Neptune: power of the half-truth; deception as a tool; win at any cost; attainment of success by use of lies and fraud.

Now it's true that we are born with chart conditions which we may never implement in our entire lives--sometimes the opportunity never arrives or we are unaware of them.

Yet it's true that somehow Huckabee has shown tremendous drive and determination toward success on the national--and now on the world--stage. His rise in politics is no accident but part of a long-term plan, as it could be for anyone with a ruling passion and a passion for ruling.

But there's more involving nebulous, often deceptive Neptune...

Mars/NN = Neptune: anti-social conduct; self-absorption within a group, either charismatic or off-putting; falsehood; disappointmets.

Venus/NN = Neptune: shyness; falsehood; disappointments; hopeless relationships.

Then there's the powerful midpoint of Sun (life purpose; essence) and Pluto...

Sun/Pluto = Mars: desire to perform record achievements; ruthlessness; overtaxing one's powers; strenuous self-application; carving new life perspectives; enormous drive.


Sun/Uranus = Jupiter: a successful reformer or inventor; good understanding; rewards for innovation; surprise and success; ego recognition.

Funny but I was taught that Christians should keep their egos in check, not show them off on TV!

Since he's a minister of faith, we may want to have a peek at Chiron in his chart--Chiron as the Christ archetype, the Key, the Wounded Healer, and the Blindspot's Crisis...ruler of mystical experiences who says to us: be here now.

With Chiron in Aquarius there is a crisis of being grounded and existing on the earthly plane. This is an electrical placement for Chiron and Huckabee's aspects indicate electrical healing abilities. Yet his discipline must come from other chart factors (Mercury in Virgo sextile Saturn in Scorpio) to be effectively used so that the "airhead" quality of an Aquarian Chiron may be successfully directed.

(If Huckabee should inhabit the Oval Office, we'll have chances to find out if his airhead tendencies are in evidence or not, because we've had gracious plenty helpings of the mind-over-matter type of pie-in-the-sky already, thanks, much to our nation's detriment. And with Moon in Scorpio square Pluto, he may be quite unconscious of his true motivations toward power-grabbing.)

Aspects to Chiron...

Sun quincunx (inconjunct = 150 degrees) Chiron: a double quincunx effect--like a loaded stick of dynamite; cannot rest until the higher self is manifested on earth; driven to spiritualize the planet. (Uh oh. This could sound like dreams of ushering in Armageddon.) This is a tough aspect which instills a rigidity about destiny and thus, a difficult personal life (Chiron, Barbara Hand Clow.)

Since his natal Sun is in Virgo, ruled by Mercury, and Mercury in Virgo is sextile Saturn, the traditional ruler of Chiron's sign, AQ, he has been able to contain and more easily direct this power toward his own benefit.

Mercury sesquisquare (135 degr) Chiron: this aspect works as a 'weak' square (if ther eis such a thing!) and so it relates to developmental tension. It indicates powerful connections with others which manifest in a constructive or a conflicting way. Since it is separating (waxing) there is a release of self through creative interchanges (The Astrology of Relationship, Michael R. Meyer.)

It's true that Mercury SQUARE Chiron gives a strong and exacting mind, but also indicates extreme opinions (Clow.)

Uranus opposite Chiron: this aspect is of ferocious intensity which either burns out its possessor or pushes him to great transmutative heights. Electrical healing ability is present, yet there is a stessed out feeling that everything's too much, at times. Drug-taking and air flights are dangerous when this aspect is being triggered, and there is a tendency toward viral infections and other immune system issues (Clow.)

Neptune square Chiron: this aspect is very stressful and is best utilized within the career (Christian minister); life will always be mystical with this aspect, and shows an inability to be "just ordinary" so why even try? Gifts to mankind are great with Neptune SQ Chiron and this energy must be used on that level or there is a tendency toward substance abuse and/or deceptive practices...this is the higher consciousness serving aspect.

Last but not least, Chiron is a catalytic planet similar in that way to Mercury, and Huckabee's Chiron is quincunx powerful Pluto: a karmic aspect which may be blocked until the death of the parent related to natal Pluto--then the peer group may be joined; there's a naggingly constant drive to find the deepest level of meaning in any situation, and to explore the Underworld of Pluto.

It is the last point which I believe may relate most directly to my first concern of Huckabee's meeting-the-powerful Pluto/NN = deceptive Neptune.

There are more interesting chart factors, but suffice it to say: I do not think we see all of this complex man so seemingly mild-mannered, and who has not--nor would anyone expect of him, given these Chiron aspects--given up his proselytizing as he struggles along the campaign road to the earthly halls of power in Washington DC.

A Christian in the White House? Now THAT would aggravate an already crisis-ridden, religiously conflicted world.

Within the 24 hours of Huckabee's day of birth, Sun stayed in Virgo, Moon remained in Scorpio and I think you'll find that his Images for Integration (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey) are very descriptive...

The Nation: the Rise of Disaster Capitalism

The Nation has an article from May 5, 2005 which is pertinent in 2007 as the globalists agenda continues to plows down everything and everyone in their path to world domination--and ownership.

From privatization of natural resources (which should benefit local populations, but not with these greedy crime bosses) to the hubris of social and economic engineering, the "rebuilding" after catastrophes and "post-conflicts" (which have yet to happen) aren't what they've been sold to be. As usual, The Nation has excellent articles on the subject. Even I finally got around to subscribing!

And the World Bank has its claws smack dab in the middle of the pie, natch.

Wonder if John Poindexter has made any sure (pre-) bets on these scams?

Think I'll mosey over to The August Review and see if Patrick has anything to say about it.

Autumn Equinox 2007 over Washington

Here is the chart for the moment the Sun reaches 00Libra00 aka Autumn Equinox over the White House (click to enlarge chart to read my scribbly notes, some of which may not be mentioned in the text of this post) on Sunday, Sept 23, 5:51 am edt.

First, there's this from

Space Weather News for Sept. 22, 2007

MAXIMUM VENUS: In a celestial coincidence of eye-catching proportions, Venus (the "morning star") reaches maximum brightness on Sept. 23rd, the autumnal equinox. In short, northern fall is beginning with a bright light in the dawn sky. Venus is actually bright enough to see in broad daylight, but easier to find just before sunrise. Wake up early any morning in the week ahead and look east for the brilliant light of Venus.

Bonus: Like the Moon, Venus has phases, and at the moment the planet has assumed the form of a slender crescent. If you have a backyard telescope, take a look!

AURORA SEASON BEGINS: For reasons not fully understood, the weeks around the autumnal equinox produce, on average, more geomagnetic storms than any other time of year. Even the mildest solar wind stream brushing against Earth can ignite auroras. Earth is inside a high-speed solar wind stream this weekend and another is due on Sept. 27th or 28th. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for Northern Lights. (Tip: Local midnight is often the best time to watch.)

Visit for sky maps, photos and more.#

Now for Autumn Equinox 2007 where you'll see that Venus 20Leo24 is in the secretive, self-undoing, karmic 12th house and almost at George Bush's natal Venus degree--his Venus Return. Venus has also passed her 9/11/01 degree for another year.

With Mercury as chart-ruler (and ruler of MC) placed in 2nd house, one of the 'money houses' and nearing the tr Saturn/Pluto midpoint, economic woes may continue esp with the 8th house of credit, insurance, debt, shared resources, etc, being under the rule of contentious yet initiating Mars which is in 10th house of Public Status. Mars is at the Bankruptcy degree, "28Gem" (Jones, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.)

Mercury in Libra may trigger thoughts and plans concerning relationships but also the court system with Libra being the sign of the Scales of Justice; and tr Mercury was at the Sat/Pluto midpoint in early September and will be again on or about Sept 28 and Nov 11.

Saturn/Pluto = Mercury: desire to solve difficult problems; taciturnity; thoroughness; research work; deep study; stark realism; depression.

The Sun reaches 00Lib00 during a Jupiter Hour, suitable for Jupiterian things which include philosophy, religion, and the legal system. Plus, Jupiter, as you know, signifies the Republican Party in all its rich splendor. The EQ Jupiter 13Sag11 is at the Foundation Point of the chart (HOW?) at the same degree as the IC (13Sag57.)

Transit Jupiter continues to expand the US sense of identity by sitting upon our natal ASC (Sibly: July 4, 1776, 5:10 pm LMT, Philadelphia) and causing expansive actions. This supports the economic flavor of the Fall season.

The ongoing T-Square (T-SQ) between the Mars/Pluto opposition (with both planets squaring this EQ Sun) changes character slightly as it becomes a Dissociate T-SQ with this Equinox. Sun also conjuncts US natal MC which I will cover below.

In his his book, Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, Bil Tierney gives some interesting info on apex Sun in a Dissociate T-SQ--and remembering that in a national chart, Sun = the leader or leadership:

The Dissociate T-SQ manifests similarly to a standard T-SQ on a functional level but there is a bit more leeway in inner responses to the challenge of the oppositional planets (and the Mars/Pluto combo = zeal, violence, brutality; intense energy application; control; extreme force.)

This ambitious Sun (leader) has difficulty relating to the intensity of the situation resulting in less motivation; adjustments are needed to integrate inner attitudes with the outer reality (well, GB has always been challenged with this kind of thing. His 'inner world' is plum magical with wishful thinking added to his emotional inability to admit the adverse. This may often be a necessary trait in US presidents, I realize.)

Actually, the Sun moving into Libra weakens the excessive power of Mars/Pluto (whether our zeal or theirs) yet apex Sun gives authority, strong willpower, and a whole-hearted urge to accomplish huge objectives. But it does this in a bossy, arrogant way with ego/pride issues causing problems in manifesting these goals.

This apex Sun demonstrates an intense self-reliance yet he must allow others to assist him--but in a way of their own choosing. Self-glorification may be evident and willfulness only reinforces the difficulties of the two SQs (Mars SQ Sun; Pluto SQ Sun.) This Sun commands the attention of others but seldom their love or respect.

Here is the midpoint picture from the T-SQ, then the picture substituting the US natal MC which is being affected by the Mars/Pluto opposition simultaneously:

Mars/Pluto = Sun: a hard worker; working until collapse or breakdown; injury or accident; taking violent measures; a higher power intervenes; upset of plans that is irredeemable.

Mars/Pluto = MC: ambition; self-confidence; dealing with might on both sides of an issue; major job maneuver; unusual ability to advance in life; or: the misfortune to face overwhelming force without power; danger through the intervention of a higher power.

If you click to enlarge the chart, you see that I've listed a transiting midpoint which is now conj US natal Moon (the people; the public; publicity) and it's Neptune/North Node which has a propaganda/glamour connection with the public (NN.)

Neptune/NN = Moon: high sensitivity; feeling ostracized; being misunderstood; lack of adaptability or of community spirit; disappointment; deceptive publicity.

And since this Moon is shining over the entire world (including the Middle East and indeed the Cresent Moon is the symbol of that region of the world) we may expect similar manifestations through al-Jazeera, etc.

The East uses a Moon-based calendar while th West uses a Sun-based calendar and an individualistic way of viewing the world--and ourselves. Moon-based societies are, of course, tribal. Neither is "right", both are valid. But try to get these violent types to admit it as each side attempts to push its way of thinking and worshipping upon the other helped along by heavy weight Pluto in questing Sagittarius, sign of the foreigner.

But Back to the Chart:

Perhaps you see that disruptive, rebellious, yet original Uranus 16Pis10 Rx, is conj the Equinoxial Descendant and thus is setting in the chart. Fixed Star, Achernar, is being triggered, keywords: success; being humane; crisis.

The Sun is quindecile (QD = 165 degrees) Uranus, planet of sudden events. The QD is an aspect of obsession-compulsion (Reeves, The Quindecile) so we have:

Sun QD Uranus: driven by excitement; need for independence with a sense of mission in needing to be different; "the rules don't apply to me"; living on the edge; may work for a cause in some significant way; disrupts the status quo through unique and innovative ideas.

This aspect with Uranus conj Achernar may also indicate natural disasters such as undersea earthquakes, volcanoes, and other water disasters (Pisces.)

The EQ's Sun/MC midpoint (the Goal) is conj US n North Node...

Sun/MC = NN: choosing one's associates carefully; the personal search for colleagues. (Perhaps this is because Bush's way of forcing things has pretty much cleared out the halls of government?!)

And what about the Sabian Symbol for the Equinoxial Sun ?

Using "1Lib" the word picture is: "A butterfly is made perfect by a dart through it"...Keyword: ARTICULATION...

pos: man's awakening to the need for some more whole-souled focus of character;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: the loss of all true selfhood by a needless surrender to the world and conformity to its ways.

As the Sabian Symbol for the degree just passed by the Sun says:

character is destiny.

Here's an Art dramatization by yours truly of the Autumn Equinox for your viewing pleasure.

Midpoint pics: Tyl; Ebertin.

Sunday 1:30 am edt: My Bad! Neglected to mention that the EQ chart has the Sun/Saturn midpoint on ASC...

Sun/Saturn = ASC: separation; being misunderstood; possible health threat; difficulties.

The Sun/Saturn combo is ughy, I know, but I had to add it since it's rising. Sun/Saturn = illumination of ambition; overwork; fear of loss; seclusion; retirement; aloneness; inhibitions; karma.

I had wondered recently in a previous post if the soon-to-be-exact tr Saturn conjunction to tr South Node (a separative point if there ever was one) would mean the loss in some way of a Democrat since Saturn = the Dem Party. Maybe this midpoint picture on the ASC relates to that circumstance and of course it could certainly be health related esp with Saturn bringing restriction to the vitality (Sun.)

Thought you'd want to know.

Hades and George Bush

This evening I posted on the Uranian planet Hades and its position in Bush's natal chart which is, as you may know, conjunct his Midheaven, the Goal or Aspiration Point.

That's Hades aka Pluto, ruler of the underworld! Follow the link and get to know Bush a little better than you wish you did...

Washington as crap game

Two-party system an illusion, the People duped. Now here's what I've been blogging about since October 2005:

The Police State Is Right Here, Right Now

By Carolyn Baker

The two major parties are like two crime families-the Genoveses and the Gambinos. They function like players in a crap game that feign opposition to each other, but when the chips are down, they will always unite to serve their common interests.

Stars, Stripes and blatant hypocrisy

"I thank God that at this hour I am dangerous to the war profiteers of this country who rob the people on the one hand, and rob and debase the government on the other; and then with their pockets and wallets stuffed with the filthy, bloodstained profits of war, wrap the sacred folds of the Stars and Stripes about them and about their blatant hypocrisy to the world."

Kate Richards O'Hare's Address To the Court Proceedings on the Sentencing of Mrs. Kate Richards O'Hare by Hon Martin J. Wade, 1 pm, Friday, Dec 14, 1917.

You tell it, sister! The infestation continues in 2007!

The day this statement was given was a Solar Eclipse day, Sun/Moon "22Sag":

"A Chinese laundry"...SECLUSION...

pos: an unusual gift for maintaining poise and self-perspective in every unfamiliar or alien situation;

neg/shadow side: unnecessary acceptance of self-inferiority.

This Eclipse manifested in the 10 North (10N) Series--the same as our upcoming "Unmasking Eclipse" of Feb 7, 2008 at "18 Aquarius":

strong emphasis on communications with frustrating or inhibiting events involving news, paperwork, or a young person; feeling drained and fatigued, this is a good time to take things quietly and work through things one at a time (Brady, Predictive Astrology.)

The 1917 Eclipse chart has the speculative, wasteful, yet idealistic Jupiter/Neptune midpoint with Pluto...

Jup/Neptune = Pluto: self-projection out of hand; major adjustment of life circumstances; plans unreasonable beyond measure; far-reaching speculations; a great loss.

Seems to describe seeking profits bwo war and some financial troubles--plus, this Pluto 4Can44 Rx, is at the US natal Venus/Jupiter midpoint so we see:

Venus/Jupiter = Pluto: gaining favor with the masses; publicity; the world view; unbounded enthusiasm.

Pluto to Venus: seeking greater power; circumstances may cause stark confrontations concerning values, principles, and priorities (!) and attempts to gain others' cooperation turn into power struggles.

Pluto to Jupiter: seeking to gain greater power and influence in economic and political realms; total honesty required; danger of intolerance and fanaticism.

At 1:00 pm (time of the above quote), the IC/Foundation Point of the chart was 5Can19(US natal Jupiter) with Pluto conjunct. At 1:00 pm, a YOD (Finger of God; special task or purpose; crisis) formed with MC; Jupiter (4Gem23 Rx) and Neptune (6Leo47 Rx--also conj US n NN) sextile...

Jupiter/Neptune = MC: a visionary; a speculator, philanthropist, spendthrift, or squanderer; harm or damage through thoughtlessness.

This means that Rx Pluto had been conjuncting America's natal Venus and n Jupiter and deepening the financial situation and promoting power expansions. Venus/Pluto contacts can indicate riches--or bankruptcy, and Jupiter has his obvious connection to money and increase with Pluto, the dragon, guarding the hidden treasure.

Now it's 2007--and war is still being used shamelessly to spark economies and make mega-millions for the greedy. The current woes of Wall Street are ripples from the attacks of 9/11, and from corruption and fraud. And thus we see the chickenhawk war machine grinding on and on.

Oh! and spendthrifts rule Washington--as long as they can spend other people's money, that is.

Michael Mukasey July 28, 1941

Here you see the sunrise chart (birth time unknown) for Michael Mukasey, July 28, 1941, Bronx, NY (click chart to enlarge.)

Since Mukasey may not become Attorney General after all the hullaballoo over Congress' demands for purgegate info which the White House is shy about giving up, I'm posting this natal chart for future reference if needed.

One can't help but notice though that his natal Sun is conjunct powerful Pluto so his father must've been a doozy--this conj indicates that his parents were involved in a great power struggle for control so Mukasey tends to see the world in this's how he relates. And Leo is inordinately proud, too, and fancies himself a natural ruler.

People with Sun/Pluto conjs tend to overwhelm others--with love, concern, guilt, problems, solutions, or anything they can think of. There's a certain amount of obsession, resentment, and a sense of self-righteousness implied and possible implications of heart problems.

And with Chiron in the Sun/Pluto fray, we have the plutocratic Pluto/Chiron pair with its loftiness issues, plus Sun/Chiron gives an early sense of destiny. This pile-up is conj US natal NN as well...public associations bwo of his power potential.

He's very much a meeting the powerful and exerting control kind of guy who should have no trouble meeting the demands of the NWO agenda, but as with everyone, it is his natal chart to choose how to use.

His Sun and Pluto are midway between Jupiter and Neptune so we see two natal midpoint pictures:

Jupiter/Neptune = Sun: following a dream; trying to capture the essence of things; deceiving or being deceived; lack of self-control; irresponsibility; speculation.

Jupiter/Neptune = Pluto: far-reaching speculations; a great loss; unreasonable plans; self-projection out-of-hand; major adjustment of life circumstances.

Being natal, these pictures may apply in any combination (or none) or at various times of life. I'd say the last one is applicable now with his possible government job.

Pre-natal Eclipse Series: 15 South: a situation which has been lingering will suddenly clear but there is a sense of grief or loss esp in the collective or within a group. Last manifested: Apr 29, 1995, next: May 10, 2013.(Brady's 'Predictive Astrology.')

The clump you see at Neptune/NN with the Moon (and the Moon reaches Libra at 12:41 pm on 7.28.41 so he could be a Leo/Virgo or a Leo/Libra personality with Libra being the sign of the scales of justice)--indicates spiritual or occultist tendencies in group endeavors along with sentimentality. (I don't know enough about him personally to know if this is correct - I'm just reading the chart. Is he of the Catholic persuasion, by chance? Jewish?)

Born during a Saturn/Uranus conj, it's interesting that the pair will soon be in the opposition phase of their cycle--for the 2008 election and the 2009 Inauguration. Oppositions are the culmination stage of a cycle. The old vs new Saturn/Uranus combo can be very ambitious with an exciting the status quo into new development flavor.

He certainly seems to be part of the Bush-Cheney agenda, and the Federalist Society is right up in there.

Around the outside of his chart:

Yesterday (Sept 17) when Bush announced Mukasey as his pick for US Attorney General, there were two transiting conjunctions to his natal planets - Saturn (responsibility; authority; control) to Venus, and Sun to natal Neptune, a planet of veils and illusions.

Saturn to Venus: seriousness enters the environment; relationships with females, other alliances, and joint ventures are curtailed by responsibilities (taking a job in government, and less money); greater commitment is called for; formality of manner; endeavors become more focused.

Sun to Neptune: ideals, fantasies, and spiritual matters become part of the environment; assistance may be volunteered (help! says George); reality may be conveniently lost sight of or others may hide the truth as inattention and flexible morals creep into the picture (in Washington, they crept in a long time ago. Remember Bush's first campaign days and his slogan to bring integrity back to the White House? I knew then that was a crock but little did I know what a giant crock it was.)

However, I do hope Michael Mukasey, if he becomes US Attorney General, can put the DOJ back on a more reasonable and less politicized course, don't you?

the Fed expected to cut rates today

With moneybags Jupiter conjunct America's natal Ascendant (Sibly, 5:10 pm lmt), the Fed may be announcing a rate cut at 2:15 pm edt in an attempt to bolster the soft US economy and give the worsening credit crunch room to improve.

Here are the midpoint pictures for 2:15 pm today in Washington, two of which have the Virgo Sun as focal point:

Mercury/Saturn = Sun: changes of residence (like when houses are foreclosed upon?); getting down to work; knowing what's got to be done; discipline pays off; making a go of it.

Mars/ASC = Sun: arguments or an inhospitable milieu; having to adjust things forcibly; excitability; intense teamwork.

Venus/Jupiter = MC: wonderment at feelings of success (really? Well, Venus and Jupiter are associated with money so perhaps this refers to the wheeler dealers who had to know this subprime market mess was coming--and who never really lose. It's true that the Venus/Jupiter duo is also linked to wastefulness yet maybe this midpoint picture refers to the rate cut--if Bernanke announces it--and that it will improve matters);

NN/MC = Pluto: organizing power; attaining success in partnerships by use of force; leadership; success; great achievements shared with others. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Venus today has returned to her degree on 9/11/01 which is also the Sun/Moon degree of the Mother of All Eclipses of Aug 11, 1999...the one foretold by Nostradmus centuries ago.

Some have termed this the King of Terror Eclipse in their attempt to ferret out the seer's (astrologer's!) idiomatique phrases of olde, but Nicholas Campion calls it the King of Alarm Eclipse. All three titles describe what the world has seen since 1999.

Personally I believe that the 1999 Eclipse is described in Revelation as the time the angels let go the winds of war--which is also what the world has seen. Disagree if you like. But that's just the way I roll.

btw: our problematic CIA turns 60 years old today, and was 'born' with a Scorpio Moon--appropriate for spying and investigation (Scorpio.)

The CIA officially came about in the 3 North (3N) Pre-natal Eclipse Series (PE):

an overexcessive family of eclipses whose main theme is news concerning a young person or which transforms a situation; large plans and activities may wish to be undertaken and will have positive outcomes as long as they are kept modest. (Brady, Predictive Astrology.)

Where have we seen the 3N Series before? It's the PE of the attacks of 9/11.

Sep 17: US Constitution's Saturn Return 2007

The post just written by your reluctant astrologer for Jude's Threshold has a sprinking of Astrology, karma, progressed charts, and neurosis, but is primarily about the US Constitution's Saturn Return today and which handily coincided with Bush's Rose Garden announcement of Judge Mukasey as his nominee for Attorney General.

Seems the few remaining DOJ employees are simply rattling around in that big old building and could use a pile o' perking up with some clear direction and a show of honest character. (If you've read this blog before you'll know I'm clutching at straws with the honest character part, more's the pity.)

So we have a nominee announced, and we have a Saturn Return--and Saturn rules Capricorn, sign of politics, business, and law. Saturn signifies lawyers, in fact, and lower court judges.

Coincidence? Synchronicity? Or electional goings-on by Sacred Geometry types? In this case the word electional refers to timing an event by looking at horoscopes for the most propitious time (and not to our near-sham elections of political types.)

Senator Jim Webb plus: Sirius and Columba

Here is a post with a few details on Jim Webb's natal chart using sunrise (birth time unknown; Feb 9, 1946, St.Joseph, Missouri.)

Today I got sidetracked by a new website discovered to have all manner of interesting articles on Julian vs Gregorian Calendar reforms (a long-standing interest of mine), America and her links to Egypt, Sirius-Isis, the Pyramids at Giza, the election of the locations for the first settlements in the New World, and many other things: Enterprise Mission where you'll find info on the "carving out" of a new constellation, Columba (for guess who?) out of Canis Major, a constellation which contains Sirius and Sirius B.

Oh yeah, Dr. John Dee, Royal Astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I, is in the house!

Greenspan's new book a Bush-basher

Greenspan Faults Bush Over Spending and I fault him over everything but the kitchen sink. And it's been a little on the gurgly side. Maybe Earth's polar axis really is in process of morphing.

So is Greenspin a flip-flopper? Or simply and very humanely responding to criticism of his handling of interest rate resets during his Fed tenure? The writing of this book one presumes has been in the cauldron for some time. Is its release Sep 2007 the usual cleverly-timed publisher's ploy?

Someone will need to change the lyrics for the old standard, Buttons and Bows if the polar axis thing comes to pass...where East is West and West is East will want better rhyming than the tune's original lyrics can provide.

At last inspection, this region's water was still draining in the accustomed direction...

As Greenspan says in his book concerning the GOP:

"They swapped principles for power. They ended up with neither. They deserved to lose."

Wish I could believe we have one party remaining with which to face our tribulations!

Jupiter-Pluto's Great Conjunction Dec 11

"The principal power in Washington is no longer the government or the people it represents. It is the Money Power. Under the deceptive cloak of campaign contributions, access and influence, votes and amendments are bought and sold. Money established priorities of action, holds down federal revenues, revises federal legislation, shifts income from the middle class to the very rich. Money restrains the enforcement of laws written to protect the country from abuses of wealth--laws that mandate environmental protection, antitrust laws, laws to protect the consumer against fraud, laws that safeguard the securities markets, and many more."

Richard N. Goodwin - Speechwriter for John F. Kennedy

"Big money and big business, corporations and commerce, are again the undisputed overlords of politics and government. The White House, the Congress and, increasingly, the judiciary, reflect their interests. We appear to have a government run by remote control from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers and the American Petroleum Institute. To hell with everyone else."

Bill Moyers - PBS Commentator#

Thanks to Information Clearing House for the above quotes.

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto on Dec 11 (2:34 pm est White House) will begin another cycle of the powerful pair. Their conj at 28Sag24 occurs in the 8th house of the Dec 11 chart along with Mercury 16Sag09 and the Sun 19Sag23, Sun squaring Sep 11's Solar Eclipse. And 28Sag24 is opposite the Moon's position on 9/11/01.

Jup/Pluto = Moon: desire to bring about social improvements and aspirations; ability to influence the masses through an emotional appeal; establishing one's position with a 'gut feel'; emotional conviction guides a new start (Tyl; Ebertin.)

As you know, 8th house is the house of credit, debt, inheritances, shared resources, transformation, the subconscious, death, and occult studies. Given the housing market and other stock market woes it seems to point to new perspectives in the financial arena whether positive or negative. (Positive for the rich, for the poor--not so good.)

Astrologers always peek at "the last time" something in the heavens occurred, so we see that Jupiter/Pluto conjoined last on Dec 2, 1994 at 28Sco26. All Jup/Pluto doings in the last 13 years have been happening in the 1994 cycle with a Scorpionic flavor, and Scorpio is a sign of very big business. It includes surreptitious undertakings and investigation as well and has the USA association (the eagle.)

Sagittarius, however, is the sign of the seeker, yet is ruled by moneybags Jupiter! Yet Jupiter also represents professors, gurus, judges and lawyers, and such, and is a significator for the Republican Party.

Pluto in Sag since 1995 has been the foreigner particularly with an impose my religion on you tone attempting to transform societies. West and East are equal culprits in this, imho, although perhaps you disagree.

Jupiter/Pluto's plutocratic energies when combined indicates: leadership, a striving for the development of power, organisers of large projects, teachers and professors of economy and law, the desire to exploit the masses, wastefulness, spiritual and intellectual leadership, fanatical zeal; a thrust for power.

Sounds like plutocratic syndicates the world over, doesn't it? The breedy gastards.

Previously I had stated that perhaps a Big Meeting is due between Jupiterians and Plutonians and it will be interesting to see if any summits or conferences are touted or promoted in December--perhaps appr Dec 19-21 when the Sun reaches the Jup/Pluto conjunction degree and hangs around awhile. Perhaps it's time for the GOP and their secret shot-callers--the Plutonians--to begin a new phase of their agenda. I say this because the R-Party's natal chart has an unaspected Pluto just doin' his own thang with his power-behind-the-throne bad self.

Jup/Pluto = Sun: doing well with all resources; keeping things in one's own grip; the successful use of strong personality power; creation of magical effects.

Magical effects? Now those should be easy to watch out for! Let me know if you notice any, okay?

UPDATE Dec 1: Fed meeting called for Dec 11...moneybags Jupiter and power-behind-the-throne Pluto, associated with underground pipes, tunnels, caves and mines.

Perhaps Pluto in this case relates to oil-rich foreigners who now possess obscene amounts of oily money (and who are buying up Citigroup and other US companies and properties more than ever before.) Plus, Pluto = deep riches and treasure beyond compare.

OR...Jupiter = the GOP, and Pluto = whoever really pulls the strings. Pluto is out-of-bounds in the Republican Party's natal chart, y'know.

On Dec 11, Pluto may represent the world monetary types--the Rothschilds and Rockefellers who call the shots, bankroll wars and coups, and generally keep things under their control 'unbeknownst' to the rest of us.

And since life is complex, descriptive Astrology can be no less so--all of the above and more may be described by the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto on a myriad of levels--and simultaneously, with this important planetary cycle (Jup/Pluto = plutocracy; leaders of the masses; the Big Picture) of appr 13 years' duration beginnning once again on Dec 11.

Their next Conjunction? in 2020 (3x: Apr 5, June 30, Nov 12) at 24Cap53.

Putin's Neptunian dissolve

Putin Dissolves Russian Government

As Neptune continues meeting with Vladimir Putin's natal North Node at IC (endings; partings), Putin has used the dissolving action of Neptune in order to name his own successor as was done for him in 1999.

One of the stronger transits to Putin's natal chart has been powerful, transformative Pluto (26Sag18 today) conjunct his natal Mars 26Sag31 in 2nd house of earning ability and values.

The transit of Pluto to Mars is obviously fraught with control issues, and relationships with males in the environment can be intensely competitive at this time, even dangerous. (Yet one supposes that Danger is Vladdie's middle name.)

Pluto/Mars contacts cause a seeking of greater control, not less, so this dissolution to pick a successor may not be all Putin has up his sleeve. There is an increase in stamina and determination, whatever the direction of one's efforts, and a single-minded approach which can be risky if revenge or anger are involved--and they usually are with the zealously fanatic Mars/Pluto combination on the scene.

Transit Mars (21Gem48 today, conj US n Mars) will soon oppose Putin's natal Mars, so there will be someone diametrically opposed to his actions and methods who will gum up the works within the next few days...opposition exact Sep 21/22.

Mars oppo Mars is the "butting head against the proverbial stone wall" transit when shows of aggression are met with equally determined force from others. Making headway is blocked or delayed--until perhaps enemies are taken out of the picture in some way.

But not to fret! for expansive Jupiter will soon be at his natal Mars (first week of Dec 07) so his Achilles Heel will be a feeling of over-confidence with an over-estimation of his abilities. Otherwise, his plans will be successful if wisdom and moderation are used. And December may bring him a luxurious vacation...such is Jupiter's traveling effect upon Mars.

Sept 11's Solar Eclipse occurred in Putin's natal 10th house of Career and Public Status so the "bringing to the surface issues to do with paperwork and communications" flavor of this Series (9 New South) may have made a shake-up of his government at this time a necessary distraction from the Russian president's past actions.

And you know that the globalist torch must be passed to the next brazen crime boss, after all, must it not?

bin Laden video # 2

News Updates from Citizens for Legitimate Government 11 Sep 2007 Breaking News

New bin Laden video identifies 9/11 hijacker BBC revealed 'alive and well' on 23 Sept. 2001 by Lori Price, CLG 11 Sep 2007 New bin Laden video surfaces (CNN) 11 Sep 2007:

A new video purportedly featuring an introduction from al Qaeda [al-CIAduh] leader Osama bin Laden appeared on the Internet Tuesday, the sixth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

In the video's introduction, a voice identified as bin Laden's praises 9/11 hijacker Waleed al-Shehri, from Saudi Arabia. He sat in seat 2B on American Airlines Flight 11, which crashed into World Trade Center's north tower. [LOL! See: Hijack 'suspects' alive and well (BBC) 23 Sep 2001 Another of the men named by the FBI as a hijacker in the suicide attacks on Washington and New York has turned up alive and well.

The identities of four of the 19 suspects accused of having carried out the attacks are now in doubt. Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September. His photograph was released, and has since appeared in newspapers and on television around the world. He told journalists there that he had nothing to do with the attacks on New York and Washington, and had been in Morocco when they happened.]#

Well, I don't know which of several governments were involved, but clearly the masterminds behind the attacks of 9/11/01 planned for such identity mix-ups after the event. Hold on...I'm having a major Duh Moment here!

The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein

Please say you've read Naomi Klein's article, The Shock Doctrine in The Guardian which is an excerpt from her book.

There's a health crisis coming and an economic crisis on the way. President All-the-Way-to-Baghdad still has adolescent problems you may read about here if you wish.

The "shock" in The Shock Doctrine refers to the electromagnetic planet, Uranus, the only planet named after a place...the sky, where the lightening happens.

Neptune in mutual reception with Uranus as they are these days--now Neptune has the veils of illusion and deception to throw over the matter. It's propaganda and undercover work when you get Uranus and Neptune energies blended as best you undersea lightening!

Well, what if Orwell is right?

Over London: chart for the 11 September Eclipse

Image: 11 Sep 2007 Solar Eclipse "19Vir" over London, England, as per request!

Sink or Swim: Sep 11 Eclipse is an excellent article by Lynda Hill, who specializes in Sabian Symbols, and who gives details on Sabian Symbol, "A swimming race" as Tuesday's Eclipse degree word picture (which is the Symbol itself.)

Thanks for the heads-up, Lynda--I've heard that your book, 360 Degrees of Wisdom, is a must-have for all Astrology library shelves, mine very much included.

And I like your method of looking to the next degree for clues about what we may want to prepare for. To me it seems to be all process, aka e-volution. A smidge like using Tarot cards, isn't it? Preparation is a useful thing--and it's good stewardship as well. Aids us in slowing down and smelling the green tea simmering.

Most often I tend to look at the degree before (unconscious), the degree itself, and the next, for 'how it will get on' info. One degree is always involved in becoming another, isn't it? And the snake eats its tail once again.

Plus, I agree with you, Lynda, on Elsie Wheeler--a fascinating lady! You have a lot of articles to read--and that's just your blog--Good Show!

Sep 11 Eclipse began in 1917

The September 11 Eclipse Series (9 New South) began on July 19, 1917, as previously mentioned, and is actually the Initial Eclipse of the entire Series--which gives info on similar themes for each of its manifestations appr every 18-19 years...this time occurring on Sep 11, 2007...tomorrow.

I have no memory of General F.S. Maude, but here's the familiar assurance he gave to Baghdad way-y-y back in 1917...the more things change, the more they blah blah blah...

"Our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators. Your wealth has been stripped of you by unjust men...The people of Baghdad shall flourish under institutions which are in consonance with their sacred laws."

--General F.S. Maude, commander of British forces in Iraq, 1917 (such a joker!)

The positions of the July 1917 Solar Eclipse are:

Sun/Moon 25Can51 (conj US n Mercury); Mercury 3Leo13; Venus 18Leo18 (her vengeful position on 9/11/01; also the Sun/Moon degree of the Mother of All Eclipses of Aug 11, 1999; Mars 23Gem54 (just beyond US natal Mars--US Mars Return on 9/11/07 = new two-year cycle of activity); Jupiter 3Gem48; Saturn 3Leo04 (conj Mercury: serious meetings; dampening news; commerce restricted);

Uranus 22AQ45 (being triggered by tr Neptune these days--Nep to Ura: confusion, disorientation, unrealistic expectations in society; ideals conflict with technical and economic issues);

Neptune 4Leo16, conj Mercury and Saturn--5Leo is the US n North Node = destined encounters); Pluto 4Can28, conj US n Venus--actually it's US n Venus/Jupiter midpoint = Pluto: gaining favor with the masses; and NN 9Cap49...Capricorn of law, business, and politics fame.

Midpoint pictures for the Initial Eclipse of 1917:

Venus/Pluto = Sun: creative thrusts; an unusual sense of form.

Venus/Pluto = Moon: enormous feelings of emotions from the depths of being.

Setting both Eclipse charts (1917 = 2007) for the Pentagon, we see that the 2007's Ascendant is bringing up (to our consciousness) the 7th house of 'partnerships; legal affairs; lawyers, consultants, mediators; rivals and competitors; open enemies' for our consideration.

And what I'm doing here is comparing the "liberating" events of 1917 with today's non-admirable quagmire. The 7th house's direction is Southwest.

>You know how I try not to complain over-much about the US natal chart such as it is (July 4, 1776: whatever version you like, aka the Declaration of Independence chart)...for after all, "modern" Astrology proffers that all charts are "good"...

...or as we might say around here, all charts are pertinent to the hapless creature born unto it with the time/place/date stamped upon the fresh child. No one else in the Universe was born where and when YOU WERE, Lone Reader...not unless another lady was on top or underneath your Ma and giving birth in tandem.

I think not.

So face are unique.

And so is America.

A More Applicable PE for America?

Personally I find the Solar Eclipse chart for Aug 14, 1776 to be especially relevant to our nation's founding, more so than the . Plus, I have read that the full signings had not taken place until August 2, 1776--and thus within the 2-week range of the eclipse.

The reason I suspect that this Eclipse is closely connected to America's beginnings and thus may be used in predictive work, is due to the meaning of its Series, the 13North (13N); this America's Founding Eclipse (PE) was also a strong, initial Eclipse (IE) in the 13North (13N) Series (Brady's Predictive Astrology):

Emphasis on groups and associations; ambitious energy is expended toward large group projects which require a separation or a breaking of already-existing bonds. Following the separation there is joint achievement.

Does this sound like America's first squall to you? Waahh-h-h-h-hhh h h..h...cloth diaper or plastic?

It even sounds like disruptive Uranian things of the day: rebellion; revolution; Franklin's electricity experiments; sudden events, emotional shocks and upheavals, bolts from the blue...but also creative genius--the sparkly touch of the muse from On High. With Uranus' higher vibratory influence on the sign, Aquarius, the Water-bearer, an Air sign of intellectual capacity and perhaps humanitarian outlook, AQ is thus associated with America who likes to boast that she gives the most. She promises a lot, doesn't she?

As you know, Uranus was discovered by William Herschel (with much help from his able sister) in 1781 and is often mentioned along with the Revolutions in America and in France. Discovery degree: 24Gem27..."25Gem": "A Man Trimming Palms"...ENHANCEMENT...

pos: an exceptional gift for bringing all things to an effective service in some special aspect of over-all achievement;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: an empty display of trivial excellencies...

(The Bush-Petraeus 'report'? Oops--my brain is in 1917 = 2007 mode. Our Neptunian/Plutonian energy titans have had 90 long years to betray and finagle their way onto someone's merde list in the Mid-East. This they have done well while meddling where they are not welcome, pontificating, thinking themselves to 'partition' land between tribal peoples! )

And the cycle of Saturn/Uranus and their upcoming opposition relate directly to the Middle East. Saturn = old systems and structures; tradition; the past; form, and Uranus = chaos; disruption; progress; the new; the ideal; the future. These two big guys first met up in 1988, the year of the first Palestinian intifada against Israel, and their cycle basically underpins the "War on Islamic Terroism."

(Saturn's and Uranus' first exact opposition in our time occurs on Nov 4, 2008...US election day. Old vs new, tradition vs the avant garde. Hillary and Obama? Gingrich and Paul? Massive breakdowns of voting equipment? More bridge and building demolishment? Mid-Eastern issues dominate? All I really know about our next annointed is that someone else decides who it will be based on their values, not mine...and that anyone who wants the job of US president needs a serious psychological evaluation, esp "at this juncture.")

1917's Sun/Moon 21Leo52, "22Leo" = "A carrier pigeon": ENLIGHTENMENT...

pos: a complete mastery of all things through the normal processes of thought;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: a lack of simple good sense. #

As I said at the start, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

al Qaeda: 1988--2007, and Jupiter-Pluto

With today's announcement of the scoring by the US gov of what is supposedly another bin-Laden-Gone-Wild Video, this double-ringed chart image has al Qaeda's natal chart of Aug 11, 1988, surrounded by 'noon' today in Washington.

As you see, al Qaeda was cobbled together during the Great Saturn-Uranus Conjunction of 1988. Their last hook-up was a 'triple' with the middle conj being the Rx phase.

The dates for their triple 1988 Conjunction are:

1. Feb 13; 2.June 26; 3.Oct 18.

December 11's Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto 28Sag24 (nuclear expansion? bombs flown across six US states to LA? religious big-dogs or mullahs meet with behind-the-scenes power-mongerers? Economic transformations? increase of power for *plutocrats? All of the above and then some?):

Jupiter-Pluto in December will be triggering al Qaeda's natal Saturn-Uranus conj and eventually natal Pluto (but that's not for a while. With Saturn and Uranus now moving into opposition--the Full Moon phase of the cycle which began in 1988--and with tr South Node now conj al Qaeda's Pluto-Chiron midpoint, they're falling back on old tactics. Perhaps old footage made up this new video.

Click to enlarge chart to read more details, for as you know, the SN is the tail of the dragon, where people--or entities--use past talents for present predicaments. Whether it is appropriate and thus successful depends on many other factors which I have no time to fuss upon. And in recent days, blogging from my heart has been interrupted by pocketbook concerns in the real understand! Anyway:

Saturn/Uranus = Jupiter: adaptive ability; a sudden turn of destiny; losses; damage to buildings; motor damage.

Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: brutality and violence; harm through force majeur; rebellion against one's lot in life; extraordinary efforts overcome difficulties.

Switch the emphasis to the Jupiter-Pluto conj as it affects al Q's natal chart and we see:

Jupiter-Pluto = Saturn: iability to progress; separations.

Jupiter-Pluto = Uranus: fanatically striving for improvements; the quick exploitaiton of every situation; sudden reforms; quick developments; adjustments to new circumstances.

As with all triggering of midpoint pictures, manifestation may be either: all, any combination, or none-of-the-above.

And yet it is quirky, isn't it, that bin Laden 'chides' the American people for "re-electing" Bush--as if his previous video didn't promote just that. "Convert to Islam," says he. Personally I owe all allegiance to the Creator of the Universe who does not condone the worship of death as some people would slanderingly represent Him to prefer. Hogwash!

You see in the natal chart the Leo Moon--al Q's reigning need (Moon) is for approval and recognition, both of which are provinces of Leonine egoism/tism and pride. Leo thinks only he can rule, and that, monarchically.

But we know that Love is the Foundation of the Universe, bin Laden-types notwithstanding.

To be sure, it's Satan fighting Satan...with innocents in the middle. Hopefully you, Dear Reader, are not one of the hoodwinked! Is it real? Or is it Memorex? What do you think?

*The word, plutocrat is also applied to the blending of Jupiter-Pluto energies as is the Pluto-Chiron combo.

Here's a post on the Solar Eclipse of Sep 11 2007.

Here's my previous post on the current triggering of 1999's Pluto-Chiron conjunction. This oppressive, corporate pair were parallel one another in mid-August, 2004 (a parallel is similar to a strong conjunction and is useful for timing purposes.) Jupiter has been visiting the 1999 conj degree (11Sag+) of late and giving it expansion ideas it doesn't need.

Or how about a lighter note? See new Art at Cosmic Persona Designs, for a frothier moment than you'll be finding around SO'W...because when world leaders su*k, they su*k bigtime.

Pluto-Chiron conj of 1999 being triggered

Having updated my notes on the great Pluto-Chiron conjunction of Dec 30, 1999 as you see here--if you're visiting on-blog, please click-to-enlarge the chart with messy notes thereupon for more details.

2007-2008: Pluto is in process of triggering the 1999 Mercury 28Sag43--which will be also stimulated by the upcoming Great Conj of Jupiter-Pluto on Dec 11.

Tr Pluto to 1999 Mercury's appr dates in 2007 are:

1. Mar 2;
2. May 2 (Rx);
3. Dec 21.

The imperial madness continues in 2008:

4. Aug 10;
5. Oct 9 (will we have an "October Surprise" in time for the 2008 election?)

We see there are plenty of opportunities for transformative, secretive Pluto to change our nation forever for as you know, the Mercury/Pluto pair = wielding influence through writing or speaking; propaganda; crafty subtlety and cunning; the spirit of opposition...among other things.

Natally George Bush has a Mercury-Pluto conj in 1st house of Self, so he's perfect for the propaganda-catapulter job. He would, no doubt, agree.

If you're on-blog, you see that the Moon 18Lib18 is conj US Sec Progr'd Mars (the military; police; male population) in 10th house of World Status, and there is a corresponding tr Mars to US natal Moon near the 3rd cusp...war to the people; emotional upset; anger...all the things which Moon/Mars implies; and Moon in any national chart signifies The People or populace.

Will return asap to complete these comments, for the Pluto-Chiron pair with its plutocrat/oppression/corporatism/racism implications needs close watching...hope you can drop back by. And that crisis-infused 29th-degree Venus looks in need of consideration as well, doesn't it?

Lincoln on the Declaration of Independence

"I have never had a feeling, politically, that did not spring from...the Declaration of Independence...that all should have an equal chance. This is the sentiment embodied in the Declaration of Independence...I would rather be assassinated on this spot than surrender it."

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) 16th US President#

And I thought it was only his plan to reform the world banking system that did him in.

Birkhead and Stern back in the news

Howard K. Stern and Larry Birkhead are going to sue the author of a new book about Anna Nicole, Blonde Amibition, and the author's allegations that the two of them are gay.(I'm not recommending the book, I'm just saying, because it seems we've got more to hear about Stern and Birkhead whether we want to or not. I vote not.)

Poor little Dannielynn. Such a sweet child doesn't deserve the cast of characters surrounding her.

Stars, Asteroids, Saturn, and Eclipses, too!

April Kent, at Big Sky Astrology has written an excellent article on asteroids, Saturn, and Eclipses!

And you've gotta love it when personal name asteroids show up--such as Albert 29Leo+ being triggered by Saturn and conjunct Fixed Star Regulus, from the tip of Leo the Lion's tail; keywords: success if revenge is avoided.

Apparently, for certain politicians, it wasn't. So check out April's articles for more information on this fascinating subject fraught with politics and drama...Leos do love the drama.

Midas and the London subway workers strike

Most of London's subway shuts down Monday evening at about 6:00 pm, with Saturn as chart-ruler and applying to transiting South Node, a separative point.

The Tube will be sorely missed until it meets its workers once again. And the Saturn-SN flavor shows the extreme discomfort the strike is causing the city of London and how it will inconvenience...other workers.

MC = "30Sco"..."The Halloween jester" and Moon is out-of-bounds and conj Pan, a trickster element.

Midas, grubber of gold, is hanging out around "8Gem" these days which is the "An industrial strike" *degree. Guess it's about mo' money. And it probably should be. Hope it works out for them and their families.

Give some up, Midas!

Congress reconvenes Sep 4, 2007

After their summer break and in spite of all the People can do, Congress reconvenes Tuesday, September 4, as I've been warned. And thus the infestation continues.

There are 'poisons' in the air, quarrels in the wings, and a thousand other things-- and of course, Tuesday's chart represents the entire week, while we Sheeple admire or deride the performances which our congressional actors and other governmental thespians shall deliver.

Oh! and al-Qaeda and others are watching, too.

Yes, my peepers were put on and a stealthier-than-usual peek was taken at the transit charts for Tuesday over the Capitol Building--for sunrise and for 9:00 am EDT. It is stealthier because of the methods employed bwo composite (blended or averaged) charts done with Tuesday + the R's and the D's natal charts respectively.

Transits for 9.4.07 sunrise 6:43:40 am Capitol Bldg:

Sun/ASC 11Vir32 conj Fixed Star Zosma, keywords: victim or a savior, conj Bush Sr natal ASC... "11Vir": "A white stud racing at full speed, his bit white with foam" (Adriano Carelli, The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac.)

note: click chart to enlarge for more details--but now my computer is crashing, E-link is off service, and I'm shutting down until later--as you know America's 'two-party system' is really just one big happy party entering a large canoe--elites vs the miserable masses. Actually, make that a's more modern.

Now we're all feeling a sense of foreboding esp with the Sep 11 Solar Eclipse in Virgo, but this entry must be completed later...and today IS a holiday of sorts here in America, after all!

Back now after a household catasprophe--can't stay long, but first here are a few notes on Tuesday's transits to the natal chart of the Republican Party:

Mercury 28Vir28 conj n Mars: information received motivates or inspires action; giving or receiving instructions; a pressing need or urge to travel; sales and business may involve: sports, vehicles, communications or computers, military matters esp equipment, education, or haircuts. Yep--haircuts.

Jupiter 11Sag09 (conj the Pluto/Chiron conj degree of Dec 30, 1999) has lately Stationed Direct upon the R-Party's ASC 9Sag47. This also conjuncts the warring Fixed Star, Antares, keywords: obsessed with success. Jupiter to ASC is a time when grand jestures are made in order to impress, and people may have or get the idea that there's higher status or importance than is the case.

Greed or self-indulgence leads to negative outcomes now--just ask the not-gay bathroom guy. (Please tip your attendant.)

Then there's the long-time-coming tr Uranus to n Neptune 15Pis53. This has been in effect ever since Uranus got to the mid-degrees of Pisces---longer than I'd care to remember. And Ura/Neptune, as you know, is the New World Order pair of 1992-93 when their Great Conjunction took place: "18Cap"...smug or string-armed paternalism.

Uranus to n Neptune upsets the status quo with an increased need to fulfill ideals and spiritual aspirations--yet individuals have little if any personal control. Freedom of expression disappears, and others make decisions which the Collective will regret.

A Uranus-Neptune period was between 1934 to 1949 when demented ideals were touted in Germany as personal freedom and equality were mocked and trampled upon with tragic results. A style of this fascism is being seen again since their hook-up in 1992-93...we're in the thick of it now, m'peops, and it's being spread by elitist globalist types who think chaos is just dandy and "worth it" along with their syndicate minions to do much of their dirty work.

They do what they like as long as they have their *sidedoor to slip out of...their loophole or secret trapdoor, their state-of-the-art escape hatch.

And yet the Davison Composite (C/Dav) chart blending Tuesday's transits + the Dem Party itself shows an obsessive-compulsive quindecile aspect between Uranus and Neptune.

Uranus QD Neptune: idealism influences rebellion; disruption of idealism and/or unity; deceit disrupts the status quo (there's that status quo again); there can be heightened idealism and compassion, and unification through innovative ideas and insights.

Two more QDs are in evidence.

Mercury QD Pluto: manipulation and cunning by using communication and information; domination of discussions; perceptions are transformed through communication of powerful ideas.

Saturn QD Pluto: old systems self-destruct; societal leaders use force, manipulation, and ocntrol which transforms rigid structures; alternately, authority may be influenced by mass consciousness.

Are there any QDS in the C/Dav chart of the Republicans? you ask.

Mars QD Saturn: aggressively and ruthlessly driven toward goals, ambitions, and achievements; physical limits are pushed to prove oneself---wookaholism; clashes with authority.

Mars QD MC: sreps on others to get ahead in career; driven by the need to reach the top; passionate and confident.

Neptune QD MC: illusion and deception used within career; has idealized perceptions about who one is in the world; intuitive and insightful; can play a role in spiritual arenas (The Quindecile, Ricki Reeves.)

As you see in the charts, the D-Party has more going on in the top hemisphere--more on display for the public, one supposes. They also have more midpoints in the C/Dav chart than the Rs do. Look for provocative behavior, plus some surprises and innovations put forth this week in Washington.

America could sure use improved behavior on Capitol Hill and in the White House. Thankfully, Bush is off the continent so once again I ask: can't the locks be changed?

And one more thing about Tuesday--around 4:00 pm edt, Moon catches up to Mars at the Venus Transit degree of June 2004 (the Sea Island, GA G-8 Summit...

"18Gemini": "Two Chinese men speaking Chinese in a western crowd."

A Venus Transit is when unexpected and unusual alliances are forged--those pesky Vulcans!

*Today Bush slipped out a White House "sidedoor" (more like a secret tunnel, si?) to fly to Baghdad for seven whole hours "on the ground." Actually I don't know if they were 'whole' or not. Then he jetted off to the Summit in Sydney, AU (and to my Aussie friends--you're welcome to 'im! But I forget--you have a varmint of your own, don't you?)

Is the Pentagon dragon ready to roar?

Pentagon 'three-day blitz' plan for Iran 02 Sep 2007:

The Pentagon has drawn up plans for massive airstrikes against 1,200 targets in Iran, designed to annihilate the Iranians’ military capability in three days, according to a national security expert. Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, said last week that US military planners were not preparing for "pinprick strikes" against Iran’s nuclear facilities. "They’re about taking out the entire Iranian military," he said.#

Shadows around every corner and "dark actors playing games," as a certain Dr. David Kelly informed a journalist. Did we ever find out who she was? Don't tell me it was Judith Miller. No. That had to have been a nightmare. Anyway, shadows and dark actors are all we get with the curent infestaion of "world leaders" as they tle themselves.

Once upon a time, any little pipsqueak nabob would've been well-satisfied with the title of dictator. Mob bosses, princes, and yes, even kings, would settle for control over the unwashed masses and a lifetime supply of breads and cakes.

But only in the egalitarian--the Aquarian--sort of way...meaning, at a distance, puh-leeeese!

Sharing the spirit but not much else; sharing little in the way of grounding, it's called in astrology. Reminds me of the song I loved to hate so long ago: You Were Always On My Mind.

Elvis regaled us with it, and Willie Nelson took a swipe at it with his lace hanky as consolation prize. But were you ever fooled by the song's sentiments of the arch-smarmy, namby-pamby thought about ya but couldn't be bothered to stir myself cop-out? I knowww.

Someone has issues and it's not just me!
