Original post begins here:
Across America this April 15 'Tax Day Tea Party' rallies are being staged at town halls and state capital buildings (most are at noon) to protest spendthrift deficit government spending - some sources say 'stimulus package' also which in my book has to include the Bush administration - and massive bailouts (which definitely include the Bush administration.)
Over taxation is an allied issue as well but this may be where people like Newt Gingrich show their hands because the rich fear financing the poor and needy.
Now I'm Jill-come-lately to looking at Astrology charts of these events but you don't have to look for long to be aware that April 15, 2009 is the day of the cyclic conjunction of Mars and Uranus, together the revolutionary pair.
Not surprisingly, "a new American revolution" is a phrase being bandied about concerning 2009's 'Tax Day Tea Party' and, of course, Mars and Uranus form a wide conjunction in Gemini in the US natal chart of 1776 (8 and 22 Gemini.)
You may even give merit to the natal version of what I think may be Benjamin Franklin's preference for America's birth chart by his reputed insistence that the Declaration of Independence be signed at 2:21 or 2:22 AM lmt (July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA) - Mr. Franklin the Astrologer is pictured on the $100 bill with the Independence Hall clock pointing to 2:21/2:22. A chart set for this time and place gives Uranus precisely rising which is why I'm investigating this chart more and more. Yet the Sibly version (5:10 pm lmt) certainly times perfectly the attacks of 9/11 with the tr Pluto-Saturn opposition across the ASC/DESC axis. Perhaps both charts are relevant even though Uranus was discovered in 1781.
On Wednesday, April 15, 2009, the Mars-Uranus conj is exact in Washington, DC from 5:57 am to 6:27 am edt; ascending degrees range from 9Ari52 to 22Ari07, with asteroid Nemesis (keywords: the unbeatable foe; divine retribution) 22Ari35 and rising at 6:27 am. Midheaven degrees: 5Cap25 to 12Cap21 placing US natal Jupiter, then natal Sun at the HOW? Point of the chart - the IC, or Foundation of the matter. Money and mission matter, indeed.
5:57 to 6:27 am edt:
Sun 25/26Aries, Moon 2Cap14 to 2:28, a Fire-Earth blend which gives these 'Images for Integration':
'A young soldier is rewarded by the King for exceptional bravery in the cause of freedom and individual human rights...Columbus discovers America, and a new world order is born.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
'Freedom' and 'individual rights' are words associated with Uranus; 'new world order' is a phrase associated with much of the blogging I've done here since 2005 and on jude's threshold...and with the deceitful bailout betrayal, fraud, and greed that have boosted the coffers of the global power elite's one-world-economic-order agenda while beggaring the American people and other ordinary folk trying to exist on the Earth at this time in history.
Mars and Uranus meet at 24Pis27 in the 12th house of Karma, Self-Undoing, and Large Institutions in the chart set for Washington, DC...a political behind-the-scenes meeting perhaps? As you know, Mars conj Uranus indicates risk-takers and those who despise the authority and control of others. I, too, despise what 'my' government has used our tax monies for - their own ends, such as war, the undermining of duly-elected governments abroad, assassins' paychecks, and who knows what else under heaven.
My neck of the woods, Atlanta, GA:
With Sean Hannity's 'Tea Party' broadcasting at the State Capital Building in Atlanta, GA (7 to 9 pm edt), I'm not certain that Capital Hill politicians are particularly worried about this 'new American revolution' as much as they are planning for it. See previous post Congress' closed door meeting of March 13, 2008. But we can bet that police squads will be in place and radicalized against dis-order of the populace, if needed.
Tea Party speakers in Atlanta are said to include former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, country star John Rich, and even "Joe the Plumber" may "stop by"...hopefully the rally's porta-potties are in no danger of failing if they must depend on this fake plumber's services. So who knows how it will go in Atlanta? Hannity's inclusion has made the event's funding requirements considerably higher than they were initially and last I checked, they're seeking more donations.
Another astrological factor to consider for April 15 is the ongoing transit of dissolving, often deceitful, if spiritual Neptune to US natal Moon (we-the-people), a time when we feel a rootlessness as domestic relationships become eroded or more spiritual; sticking to a routine is difficult, but promotional talents can flourish. Prisons may be on Neptune's menu as well.
And very telling is that possessions are subject to loss through carelessness - or by theft.
And that theft is being billed as the impetus for Tax Day Tea Party rallies 2009 - theft of taxpayer monies. The devil is that some of our rich power elites are participating, too, as if they are suffering anything like the financial hardships that we-the-people are undergoing.
Plus, you probably know of the political party formed as the 'Boston Tea Party' as an ideological improvement on the Libertarian Party, and whose platform is based on Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty. The whole Tax Day Tea Party shebang is based on their lead, it seems.
My fret is that their platform to abolish practices which do need abolishing (such as warrantless searches and surveillance, and establishing a total withdrawal of US troops from all nations, and a well-deserved audit of the Federal Reserve) - while they sound good - may be part of a disguised attempt to abolish our nation's sovereignty and thus promote the same old NWO agenda. Tiresome not to know whom to trust, isn't it?
Note: concerning the original
Boston Tea Party of Dec 26, 1773 - it was apparently staged by Masonic Lodge members dressed as Indians! Not that they were the only participants, mind you, and the anti-British government tea-dumping is now considered part of the lead-up to the American Revolution. "No taxation without representation" is still an issue for certain with the fatcats of Washington and their global masters pulling strings against us.
So with the early-Cap Moon of April 15 conjuncting manipulating, plutocratic Pluto (planet of powerful publishers at 3Cap+ Rx) during the day, it will be interesting to see if the media (mainstream or otherwise) portrays 2009's Tax Day Tea Party rallies as 'anti-Obama only.'
My advice: don't leave out the de-regulating, thieving Bushies, Clintonites, and the Reaganheads - for they are heisters all!
