Fueling Fires: out-of-bounds Mars in Cancer Sep 1, 2009

Tomorrow is Sept 1, 2009, and once again America is spending part of our summer alight with raging wildfires, especially in California, which means we're again having trouble with an out-of-bounds Mars, now conjunct US natal Venus @ '4 Cancer' and in process of intimating his activist self between Venus and our nation's natal Jupiter '6 Cancer' - and you know that Cancer is the sign of Home, Domestic Scene, and Family.

Yes, testy, testosterone-driven Mars, god of war, quarrels, and a dedicated fire-starter, is 'in the house' (Cancer.)

US Venus/Jupiter = tr Mars: preoccupation with opportunity; trying to make things happen successfully; stirred up feelings; strong powers of wishing.

(Any~all~none may apply on various levels at different moments.)

Even California's Mt. Wilson Observatory is at risk as the fires' area doubled overnight.

Prayers for safety go to the folks in our western coastal regions from this gnat of a blogger on the eastcoast. CA has enough troubles from underminers already, doesn't it? (And I suspect that a few of them are on the public payroll, but that's a grouse for another post.)

Well, if you notice Politics at all, ya gotta love the Sabian Symbol for Mars' current position @ '4 Cancer' which may also be considered as Venus' position in the US birth chart..."A Cat Arguing with a Mouse"...'JUSTIFICATION...

positive expression: a gift for persuading others to accept the motives of self and to co-operate with its ends;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: interminable quarreling with the nature of things.'

Astrology notes~Famous quotes on the New World Order

Here are a few quotes about the 'new world order', if you're hankering for a brief bask in its deformed rays.

In his book *The Secret History of the West, Nicholas Hagger says that the term 'new world order' was first used in the modern media by Nelson Rockefeller on **July 26, 1968, when he asserted that he would "work toward international creation of 'a new world order.'"

(The term) 'was widely used following the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989' (Reagan.) 'President George Bush used the term several times before the Gulf War; for instance, "Out of these troubled times...a New World Order can emerge" ('Sept 11, 1991' as displayed in the video below ~ although this precise date is disputed, particularly as noted in this text of Bush Sr's speech to a Joint Session of Congress, Sept 11, 1990, not '1991'; notice in the text he refers to their "fifth objective, 'a new world order.'" jc.)

'And the term has been much-used following the terrorists attacks on New York's Twin Towers and Washington's Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and in association with President George W. Bush's ensuing war in Afghanistan. A new world arrangement is taking place.

The New World Order has frequently been associated with American world dominance and increasing powers of the UN. Essentially is is the creation of a world revolution to form a United States of the World. A world revolution cannot happen everywhere simultaneously; it is by its very nature piecemeal, involving component revolutions in specific local places, now here, not there.'

Hopefully, I am not quoting too much text from Mr. Hagger's book for my intention is to say that the more people reading his books, the better.

In Hagger's next paragraph he goes on to say that 'the immediate roots of the New World' is what he calls a "Syndicate of banking and governing families seeking to control the world's oil, in which the European Rothschilds and American Rockefellers were principal influences,' and that they have had 'a dynastic drive for a one-world regime ever since 1900. 'The drive has been linked with Templar Grand Orient Freemasonry.' (My caps.)

He then questions whether separate revolutions of the last 550 years are linked in some way, and offers the reader other intriguing posers. In his Introduction, Mr. Hagger states that, 'The roots of the New World Order can be found in the dismantling of the old Catholic Europe, and it is to the Reformation and its effects on the Elizabethan world that we must first look, a revolution that influenced Utopians for the next 550 years.' (Remember Rumsfeld's "that's old Europe" brou-ha-ha?)

We're bedeviled by Utopians! So. How 'utopian' does it feel to lose your job and watch your kids go without basic necessities? Now don't you think that if Congress cared a fig they would've avoided plopping us into this broiling stew to begin with? Government is the problem, all right, but not for the reasons government disingenuously cites.

Of course, I have more questions on the topic of the NWO and the chaotic messes the world has been mired in since the 'New Millennium' reared its Nostradamic head:

Are Pentagon-labelled "insurgents" of the Middle East, in their haphazardly violent way, fighting on the correct side of the resource-pillaging Syndicate because they are fighting its establishment as a one-world-government? Is The Octopus, the network of world crime families, actually as against me/my kith and kin (and you, dear reader) just as much as they are against those who stand in their oil-grabbing and plundering way in the Middle East and elsewhere?

Is installing a 'new world order' fair justification for invading Iraq and anywhere else the White House and Pentagon cast a raptor's eye upon? Are you enjoying the 'financial collapse of 2008' as a way of ushering in the economic chaos that is an integral part of the singular money system by which they will manipulate the world's trade, commerce, and basic needs such as food and water?

Are you ready for your day and manner of worship to be dictated to you?

If you haven't yet, read what another Rockefeller had to predict in 1991 about the New World Order, a famous quote that should curdle your bones. These bonesmen play for keeps, as both readers of this, and other blogs, know.

So...what do you think? you think?


*You'll find Ricki Reeves' The Quindecile in my 'Good Books on Astrology' feature in the sidebar to your right.

** As to the Astrology of Rockefeller's open use of the term 'NWO' we note the separating Uranus 26Vir20 (tr Uranus now opposing its 1968 position - in Natal Astrology what would mark one's 'midlife crisis')/Pluto 20Vir59 Conjunction of 1965/66, 16 - 18Virgo), plus, the obsessive-compulsive quindecile (165 degr) between radical reformer Uranus and the North Node of the Moon (public contacts; fated associations.)

In her groundbreaking work, Quindecile, by Ricki Reeves, we find that a QD between Uran/NN = disruption of the status quo bwo innovative ideas; being renowned for inventive ideas; being driven by a need to shock others (as in, 'Shock Doctrine'? jc.) The combination of Uranus/NN = radical political reformers.

The year 1968 was a radically shocking year to our national psyches, to be sure:

April 1968 stunned and bereaved our nation with the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as he proceed to meld The People together in support of anti-war sentiments along with the civil rights movement - a larger, more potent force from We-The-People than each movement could be on its own; June brought the horror and tragedy of Robert Kennedy's assassination to prevent his presidency.

A New World Order pecks from its shell: April, June, and July 1968

So Rockefeller's statement came after two assassinations of leaders the people rallied behind en masse, and all three events happened - were perpetrated - during the 6 North Series whose March 28, 1968 Solar Eclipse manifestation occurred @ '8Aries' and which has this flavor:

Focus on relationships with authority figures; the need to take control and responsibility; commitments come along due to another person's unreliability or illness (or murder. - jc.) (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

6 North has manifested in the years 1986 (@ '19Aries' on April 9) and 2004 (@29Ari49 on April 19) and will do so again on April 30, 2022 @ '10Taurus,' fyi.

And now, presenting a video of Geo Bush, Sr., in one of his most-remembered you've watched a thousand times and just can't seem to get enough of the crazy-eyed b*st*'s George Herbert Walker Bush touting, predicting, and threatening us on behalf of a 'New World Order' - a Novus Ordo Seclorum manifesting directly under our snoots, if you will...

"...and we will.....," Bush intones with determination.

Now. Don't you think he meant it?

A Sunday of 'Brigadoon' and book signings Aug 30, 2009

Well, I've been watching the Sunday morning political shows which are mainly about Senator Ted Kennedy and his passing last week, yet soon I shall motor into the city to attend a matinee of Brigadoon, a nostalgic favorite of my childhood about a mysterious Scottish village that's only visible for one day every 100 years.

Maybe we can devise a way for Washington DC's Capitol Hill to sign up for that schedule...we'd all be safer and richer, I suspect.

Then it's a dash to a town celebration in Winterville, GA which is being held for my niece, Donny Bailey Seagraves, whose first novel Gone From These Woods is released this very weekend.

So it should be a fun, if rainy and thundery, day!

Invisible government as Octopus: a famous quote round-up

"There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself."

Dan Inouye United States Senator for Hawaii

"The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as 'international bankers.' This little our government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen...[and]seizes...our executive officers...legislative bodies...schools...courts... newspapers and every agency created for the public protection."

John Francis Hylan (April 20, 1868 - January 12, 1936), Mayor of New York City from 1918 to 1925.

"I'm going to be so much better a president for having been at the CIA that you're not going to believe it."

George Bush (41st US President 1989 - 1993, b.1924)


Famous Quote Round-up courtesy of the excellent Information Clearing House Newsletter...subscribe today.

And here's a newspaper article from the past by John Hylan where he blames the greed of big bankers for our nation's being on the verge of bankruptcy! Sounds eerily familiar, yes?

And you know that if you cross your eyes as you gaze at America's natal chart ('Sibly' version; July 4, 1776, 5:10 pm LMT, Philadelphia, PA), you see a planetary picture with our Virgoan Neptune and Libran Saturn on either side of Midheaven which gives this word picture to our nation's aspirations (Mc) by way of secret or invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn)...

Sat/Nep = Mc: wavering between materialism and idealism; peculiar loss of ambition; moodiness; capitulating to the demands of the environment totally. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Or to put it more simply: 'invisible' or 'secret' government is the pentacle of aspirations and the path of worldly success for the US government. Argh.

Borry sastards. If this is the case, then we-the-people have been set up from the start as supported by US Pluto positioned in controlling Capricorn and out-of-bounds of the earthly plane, an icy place from whence the Dragon makes his own plans toward his own goals...and devil take the American people - along with the rest of the world, too, come to think of it.

Sen. Tom Coburn's frightening answer ~ video Aug 2009

Timothy Noah's Slate post displays the brief video of Senator Tom Coburn (that's Doctor Coburn, to you and me) at a town hall meeting as he 'answers' a plea from a desperate woman whose traumatic-brain-injured husband - who has medical insurance but is being denied - needs help with Eating and Drinking.

The GOP's icy veins are on display here, so perhaps you should watch the video only if you're not faint-of-med-coverage. 'Heart' pretends to enter the picture for the distressed woman, but only to make the Reagan 'government IS the problem' talking point the GOP likes to make when it behooves them politically - or when they can't think of a decent answer in a pinch.

As a practiced politician, the senator doesn't actually answer her question in relation to health care or insurance reform, but he does attempt to punt the Republican opposition ball down the hall while hoping to undermine the Democrats' efforts to institute reform so that care cannot be denied by a corporate bottom line.

In spite of the couple's payment of health insurance premiums, Coburn comes up with a 'neighbors should help' remark which is, of course, a suitable, if partial, solution to anyone's needs and cares, but his 'solution' seems paradoxical to this blogger considering the usual GOP's allergic reactions to all 'entitlement programs' and other such rantings on-message from the NWO where government is characterized as the bad guy, and privatization is supposedly the answer to everything.

We see that it is not.

In fact, the lady's understandable desperation over her husband's extreme dilemma illustrates the outcome of bottom line motivations whether it's health insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security payments. The last three I mention are gov-run programs that work quite well and would work better if fraudulent practices were rooted out.

Health care systems and med insurance are the privately-run conglomerates causing trouble and family bankruptcies in our society. So...

Are we our brother's keeper, or are we not?

Well, I say we are because the Bible tells me so.

And Republican Coburn says we are when it comes to a traumatically-injured man and his individual neighbors being responsible - but not when it comes to government, which is a group of people making use of our tax monies (which are used in part to rebuild other countries they've bombed into oblivion - so no, there's no moola for your health care, America)!

Schizophrenic much?

To be fair, I guess Coburn was on the spot in this situation since he couldn't very well reply with the oft-repeated GOP mantra: "all through your life you've made choices" which seems to pass in GOP circles as an answer to one of the primary moral questions of the ages: Am I my brother's keeper?

Result? The GOP is still MIA on that question and unaccountable - like a raptor-eyed George Bush during Hurricane Katrina's dire miseries. Well, transiting Saturn brought a responsible/accountable vibe during that time period to Bush's natal Ascendant, and made him say, ouch! Mea culpa, kinda.

Yes, this political ploy of a joke is still bedeviling us and it seems tragically hilarious now to think that the Republican Party once dared called itself a gaggle of 'Compassionate Conservatives' - what a hoot! Are you terribly amused?

Wayne Madsen video on Mandatory flu vaccine H1N1

Here's journalist Wayne Madsen speaking on TV recently concerning the side effects and doubts about the H1N1 flu vaccine. This 'prevention' sounds too risky to me, how about you? And why did they use components that contain Mercury? If autism or paralysis are possibilities, you can have my share, because even scientists are saying 'No Way' to their families' being vaccinated!

If they institute mandatory vaccinations across the nation, the US government will have a mess on its hands, right next to its da*n spot of guilt. Yet if any of the New World Order theories are correct, revolution is just what the power elites want for thinly veiled 'justification' for the extreme control they want to wield over us.

Will revolt against submitting to H1N1 vaccinations be the catalyst for conflict?


Update 3:40 pm edt, Athens, GA: Here at the University of Georgia (UGA) some dorm students have contracted flu and have been sent home which I hope isn't what spreads the virus.

Update2 @ 5:00 pm edt: this just in - Australian insurance companies are said to be denying coverage to doctors who immunize against H1N1. And this is a mess caused in part from government in the last few years becoming completely unworthy of the people's trust, with more difficult issues to come.

Who really runs Britain?

Who runs Britain? The UK parliament? The Queen? Both in partnership? Or some old bald-headed freak cackling away in a bank vault in London or Edinburgh?

Funny story.

Turns out that a company named Serco, headed by a South African fellow, actually runs the UK, its railways, and quite a bit more besides.

Oh what this blogging gnat would give for one particular name of the a*s who runs America. He'd have a lot of 'splainin' to do, wouldn't he?

Sen. Ted Kennedy passes, North Node to his natal Saturn

The sad news about Senator Ted Kennedy's passing late last evening after his year-long battle with brain cancer was expected but sobering. Flags fly at half mast in Washington, DC, and I, the reluctant astrologer, feel compelled to see what transits were in effect to his natal chart. So far I've only found "late last night" rather than an exact time of death.

Blogging time is brief again today (tomorrow will be better), but there is the senator's Saturn in his first house @ 29Cap49, with the transiting NN 29Cap43, pointing and saying that Saturn the Timekeeper has run out the clock. Venus 29Can22 opposes at the tr South Node, and conjunct the current Solar Eclipse degree of 29Can27.

His was the system that failed (7.21.09 Solar Ecl = 'systems fail.')

Sen. Kennedy's natal North Node 26Pis15 in n 2nd house has a planetary visitor as well: Uranus 25Pis30; Sun 2 - 3 Virgo approaches his problematic Moon 6Vir25 and Neptune 6Vir44 conjunction in 8th house.

Last last night (using 11:30 pm edt), Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, at the family compound, Moon 17Sco32 was in the senator's natal 10th house and opposing his n Chiron 18Tau58, and the transiting Mars 00Can16/Pluto 00Cap44 opposition falls across his natal 6/12 axis of Health and Hospitals.

And with natal Sun representing 'vitality' there are several transits to his natal Sun 2Pis32 (2nd house), most of which hare separating: Sun, Mercury, Mars, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. All are oppositions or minor squaring aspects.

Last night's Mercury 00Lib16 is in the senator's n 8th house conjuncts America's natal Midheaven ('Sibly'); Saturn 22Vir12 conjuncts US n Neptune (in Virgo, sign of Work - he was quite a 'workhorse') indicating loss; tr Mercury/Saturn midpoint = natal SN 26Pis15.

The Mars/Pluto opposition upon World Points of Prominence square his natal Nodal axis, so perhaps we have what the senator will be remembered for...

Tr Mars/Pluto = n NN: working with others to change the world.

May you RIP, Senator Kennedy.

Astrology of Bernanke renomination 8.25.09

Here is the text of President Obama's in-the-bag renomination of Ben Bernanke to remain at the helm of NY's Federal Reserve Bank.

Taking a break from vacationing with the family unit, the president began speaking at 8:55 am edt (Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts); he and Mr. Bernanke completed their mission at 9:01 am edt.

Wish I had time to post the start/end charts of today's announcement, but I don't.

The charts have a few critical 29th degree planets, plus North Node 29Cap45, with South Node at the degree of the July 21/22, 2009 Solar Eclipse which I've mentioned many times before (29Can27 'systems fail; new methods are needed', etc etc.) Wonder what's really going on?

Mercury 29Vir44 has just arisen (8:55 am edt: ASC 5Lib36 with Sun/Moon midpoint upon it - 'friendship'); chart-ruler Venus 28Can39 is *oriental and nearing a 29th degr and conjunct SN and the July Eclipse degree along with transiting Hygeia, Apollo, and Vesta.

Out-of-bounds Mars 29Gem53 is within range of opposing Pluto 00Cap44 Rx; Mr. Bernanke has a natal midpoint that arose from 8:55 to 9:01 am edt @ 6Lib44...

Sun/Uranus = ASC: sudden experiences; new contacts; an excitable person.

This morning's Sun 2Vir28; Moon 9Sco41/45, with Moon triggering Mr. Bernanke's natal Pluto/NN midpoint ('powerful connections') in a very interesting and apt way...

Plu/NN = Moon: reaching for the big picture; making the big scene emotionally; ambition is magnified, or there is too much fear for any action.

The desire to increasing Fed authority comes to mind with this one.

At Midheaven for the 6 minutes of the announcement are America's Venus, Jupiter, and Sun in Cancer; Midas 8Gem43.

There are a few T-Square patterns, too...

Mars/Pluto = ASC: the fighter who dares the impossible; showing the hero image (they did. - jc)

Mars/Plu = Mercury: seeing is achieving; tenacious pursuit of plans (yep - jc); publicity; effective salesmanship; the desire to realize plans fanatically; nervous irritation.

Pluto/Mc = ASC: procurement of an important position and of recognition; a person of fame; being out in front of everyone

Plu/Mc = Mercury: a person with great powers of suggestion; a great mind; thinking big; recognition of intelligence; planning.

Transiting Saturn 22Vir08 is on-degree for US natal Neptune and Mr. Obama's natal Mars, so let's smoosh together the three planets and see what we get - in no special order, and remembering that things may act in an any-all-none fashion...

Mars/Neptune = Saturn: being taken advantage of; misdirected energy; reticence; persevering in spite of fear; a sense of futility; instability; unfortunate consequences as a result of a weak will; toxins; an epidemic.

Mars/Saturn = Neptune: insufficient power to tackle resistance or obstacles; weakening efforts; weak vitality; undermining through poison, gas, or an epidemic; loss; a mysterious death.

Saturn/Neptune = Mars: inactivity; lack of energy; preoccupations that can't be explained. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Yes, I figured that would cheer ya up. An epidemic could certainly put a damper on the recovery we're supposed to be feeling any day now.

Or how about a natal asteroid of Mr. Bernanke's that was also rising this morning at 8:55 am edt?

That would be Persephone, keyword: transition; other levels of meaning include: separation anxiety; Lee Lehman says Persephone may indicate 'where skills are undeveloped' (hope not!), and we know who Persephone was forced to hang around with: Pluto of the Underworld, the same Pluto that guards the richest treasures.

Now as you may know, I tend to occasionally lapse into the use of degree symbols as collected by Adriano Carelli in his book, 360 Degrees of the Zodiac (published by the AFA 1977; my copy 1982), so I can't resist adding his symbols' word pictures for 5, 6, and 7 Libra, the rising degrees from 8:55 am to 9:01 am edt.

No explanations now, I'll just give you the symbols themselves for the ASC which is the WHAT? Point of a chart:

'5Lib' - "An albatross with glaring red beak and claws";
'6Lib' - "An old sapper busy digging";
'7Lib' - "Mary Magdalene at Christ's feet in the house of Pharisee Simon, who is scandalized by the sight." Wherefore I say unto thee, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much." Luke 7:47.


*Venus oriental: in Astrology, an 'oriental' planet is the last planet to rise before the Sun, here Venus. This indicates a career where one works with things of value, the work function is personalized somehow, and work evaluation is a welcome substitute for direct evaluation of one's person which might be hard to accept or believe. (Synthesis and Counseling in Astrology, Noel Tyl.)

Horoscope of the 1929 Crash: 'Black Tuesday'

A chart set for Noon in NYC on the day of the 1929 stock market crash - 'Black Tuesday' - is being published here because the image will no longer 'click-to-enlarge' on my WordPress blog where the chart's details are published, so I'm linking this post to the chart detail text there and vice versa. (Just tryin' to disseminate some info within the bounds of online tech quirkiness!)

In 1929, the 'little guy' working man (woman) who had been snookered into investing his life savings with Wall Street, was wiped out along with middle men who may just as well have jumped out of The Windows Of Wall Street for fear of prosecution for fraud and racketeering than for the loss of wealth which accompanied the exposure of their weaknesses, warts and all.

Now they've done it all again, this time with expanded worldwide implications for the 'global economy' they've always said they wanted (so the collapse may be complete and total, the better to rule the entire world, my dear.)

We now know that the Crash of 1929 netted a select few elites unimaginable amounts of profit and was something of a test - a major heist, yet simultaneously a sort of toe-in-the-chaos-water ploy. And what powers arose after 1929? Hitler and nazis in Germany, FDR in America. Flip sides of the same coin? Everyone knows the two men were born with very similar natal charts, so you decide.

But this time, the power elite are ready to finally fold 'em. They'll walk away, but we're the ones who must run from the results of their big Chess Game with Important Consequences.

And btw, if you do enlarge the chart for reading, you'll see that the Speculator Pair's midpoint, Jupiter/Neptune, was visiting US natal Mercury Rx '25Can' in 1929; on that day, if fact, so we see a picture formed...

Jup/Neptune = Mercury: communicating fancifully; changing character; the raising of hopes; tendency to put on an act, or to talk a lot.

(A chart-notation correction: marked in 7th house, you see the current Solar Eclipse as 'July 22, 2009' which should be 'July 21, 2009' for Eastern Time; notation should be on the other side of 'Jupiter/Neptune'/'US natal Mercury' because 29 comes after 24 or 25 every time. Post continues here...)

The Crash of 1929 was the raising and dashing of a multitude of hopes: for a funded retirement, college monies for a child, a first house - you name it, Wall Street gentry and their buds dashed it and walked away more flush than before.

Yes, you know it, you love it: it's an international Octopus with its life-squelching tentacles around the throat of humanity. Just say, No! to its further encroachments today.

Oh dear. I just ideologically joined some of the town hall protesters with their righteous questions shouted to a shove-it-through congressional team of on-the-take heisters and shysters. Well, that's just great.

See what bad and dishonest government can cause? The Act our deceivers are putting on for our edification is changing the character of our nation. And it's definitely not for the better.

Did you hear that sound? That clunk may have been the muted decibels of yet another US newspaper shutting down its presses - or being sold on the sly to shadowy foreign investors...

Ollie North asked about Rex 84 during Iran Contra hearings - video

This video from the Iran Contra 'hearings' shows Oliver North bristling and - pardon my French - clamming up his pie hole as Rep. Jack Brooks, a Democrat from Texas, questions him about his NSC work on the martial law provisions of FEMA to suspend the US Constitution and round up troublemakers during domestic emergencies of any kind which the government deems declarable as such.

The problem is these jolly days, we don't know the difference between emergencies and trumped up, sexed up emergencies! What they call 'false flag ops' are perpetrated only abroad, never here in hallowed America...or are they?

With Reagan on the lofty perch, came the auspiciously Orwellian year of 1984 when there appeared a plan named Rex 84. Almost as soon as Reagan was sworn in, he appointed Louis Giuffrida as head of FEMA. You'll hear the rest in the video, if you don't know it already. (And it was at 12:05 pm est on Jan 20, 1981 that Jimmy Carter says a secret agent whispered in his ear that the Iranian hostages had been released. Quite a busy few minutes, what?)

Anyway, view the video and check out Giuffrida's crazy syndicate eyes and the other-worldly expression on his gob. He could be a poster boy for the national Never Meet This Man in a Dark Alley campaign.

And So, Enter Dubya, stage right

Together with former and so-recent CEO/prez Bush's implementation of Directive 51, a number that conjures the karmic or fated septile aspect of chaos to my mind, the US government is preparing and alert, in order to protect itself from the American people who, forced into dire straits, may be lemming'd into behaving most any way FEMA officals, or their surrogates or bosses, deem conducive for successfully staging a military coup upon the United States of America.

Twisted justifications will follow, if there's anyone left to fool or impress.

Yucky to Think About, I Know

Just consider the number of military bases the US has established around the globe. Harken thee back to America's Progressed Mars (military; males; energy; action; initiative; drive), so recently turned retrograde 'by progression' - and thus we have developed (progressions) a tendency to turn inward (Rx) with the might and zeal of our nation's collective Mars. And we've become even sneakier than before!

Wonder if one day you'll remember reading these cautionary words when they are no longer available for anyone's perusal, or after you are no longer able to read them?

Yes, the zionists are closing the trap, m'peops. And this time, they intend to remain in control of earthly power for the duration.

Or until the trumpet blows. Whichever comes first.


From The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones:

'8 Pisces' = "A Girl Blowing a Bugle" = SUMMONS.

Positive expression: an eagerness for self-expression and an alertness to every opportunity for self-justification;

Neg/unconscious/shadow side: officiousness and a delight in regimentation. #

Yes. It's the shadow side of the 'official' US government (with its regimented soldiers) that I fret about.

I chose this Symbol because of my last comment about the trumpet blowing. But I just thought of something about the US natal chart...natal Ceres and the Chiron/Pluto midpoint are both positioned at '8Pis' in 1776, and you know about the oppressive, fascist racism, enslavement, and disenfranchisement of Chiron/Pluto, one of the primary significators of primal violence and plutocracy come to oppress.

Chiron/Pluto = Ceres Rx. (In Astrology, any retrograde body isn't necessarily weaker because of its Rx condition, it's deeper because it acts on inner levels.)

Plus, in national charts (Mundane Astrology), asteroid Ceres represents security needs, concerns, and issues. So I'd even wondered if the recent outbursts, the reputed gun concealment, and shoutings-down at townhall meetings are part of a set-up to rile the citizenry more quickly so that martial law may be imposed on schedule.

If so, it tells me that the GOP and others retain their ability to sway large numbers of the populace through emotions while not leaving so much as a claw print upon their hearts.

Warpaths and a Joyride to Hades

And in front of military veterans, too!

President Barack Obama sounds predictably Bush-like as he stumps on behalf of war to an allegedly willing audience, while evoking 9/11 to justify US imperialism against the whole world - but most especially against the Middle East where the oil lies.

Never mind the true and lasting consequences.

Did I hear you whisper, hope, change...or...audacity?

Once again I assert that changing presidents in honor of the Oval Office is a baton-passing exercise. It has nothing to do with deserting a previous agenda. It has everything to do with continuing an agenda, though perhaps under a different guise...this time, a suave one.

You know the old saw: would you buy a new or used car from this man? Well, it seems you and I already have, but unbeknownst to many, George and Dick were huddled together in the rumble seat, grinning like satanists on a joyride to Hades.

Mr. Obama steps on the gas...

Financial Astrology 2009 - 2010: Saturn, Jupiter-Neptune

Master Financial Astrologer Ray Merriman has an article on Saturn's Realities and Jupiter/Neptune Hopes that takes us from 2009 into 2010.

Since financial cycles and astrological cycles may be understood in tandem and one used as a magnifying glass to read the other, I recommend Mr. Merriman's article to you, especially since the current media attention seems focused more on Jupiter/Neptune's dreams and grand schemes than on Saturnian practicalities and realism.

2009, year of the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Neptune. This speculating and possibly religious pair's third and final conjunction will be on Dec 21, 2009 @ 24AQ18, conj US natal Moon (the people.) Shall I type out the midpoint picture this forms one more time? Okay.

Jup/Nep = US n Moon: an emotional swoon; going with the wind; dreaminess deceives; becoming involved in speculation (I know - we've been doing that for years, that's a big part of the problem - sheeple to the slaughter); little sense of reality (engrossing new films and TV shows help divert us; plus, power politics played in front of the cameras); losing oneself in plans; instability; wastefulness. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

2009 is also the year of transiting Saturn's late August-early September visit to America's Neptune in Virgo, sign of Health, Work, and Service (which includes our police and military forces.) This is the 'grim reality' transit - but everything Saturn *changes, for change he does, is necessary for owning up to truth, and for lessoning us into compliance with the way things really are.

"All good things must come to an end," was undoubtedly dictated by Saturn, old Cronos Mercury, **The Scribe.

But Washington, Wall Street and the gold-encrusted world banks are fighting having their culpabilities and weaknesses exposed, as Saturn always insists upon. Destructuring, transformative Pluto the saboteur is Rx again and in the first degree of Saturn-ruled Capricorn which adds to a general sense of doom, and that fated, karmic reaping-what-we-sow vibe.

Thing is, it was mainly the uppercrust who sowed sorriness, and the common folk are doing the reaping of the power elite's frauds and faulty thinking.

The good news is that Saturn-to-Neptune has the magical ability to bring dreams (Neptune) into Saturnian reality and form, so my wish is that it's Saturn the Grizzly Wizard coming along to create new jobs and opportunities which are more stable and long lasting than any dream we have previously imagined.

Our American character's Neptunian dreams and ideals are of a practical Virgoan nature, after all.

I don't think a decent job (Saturn) is too much to expect (Neptune)!


*One of the caps Saturn wears is The Time Keeper. He doesn't wear it jauntily either, but he does keep a stopwatch in his hand.

**Mercury/Saturn is 'the signature of the professional writer' as Noel Tyl informed me when consulting on my natal chart a few years back. jc

'Capitalism: A Love Story' by Michael Moore - video

This trailer about Michael Moore's new film, which debuts on Oct 2, hints that the movie looks promisingly informative and more than a little annoying for Bush, Cheney, Paulson, Bernanke, Congress, Wall Street gentry, and the rest of the heisters who've ruined a world economy so they can build it back to their liking.

Wonder if seeing Mr. Moore's film will change my opinion.

Propaganda of a Rising Star: Ben Bernanke

The Atlanta Journal and Constitution reports that Fed head Ben Bernanke is a "rising star" who, after a "slow start", is managing the financial crisis quite well, thanks.

Perhaps he is, but knowing that Mr. Bernanke's Fed term is up in January 2010, my suspicious nature is more likely to see the current glowing reports on Mr. Bernanke's performance as propaganda meant to justify the fact that there's little chance President Obama will be replacing Bernanke in January.

And the Wall Street culture continues to rule plutocratic America as numbers reports are fudged and are strategically released to create a 'special effect' - a mirage - of financial improvement.

All in all, I'd have to say that the jury is still out on Mr. Bernanke's performance - at least it is on Main Street USA.

Here's a round-up of stuff I've previously blurbed about Ben Bernanke including his Pre-Natal Eclipse details - his PE manifested its 18.6-year cycle on September 11, 2007 (perhaps you remember that one, it was a doozy) @ '18Virgo' and the Eclipse obviously occurred on the 6th anniversary of 9/11.

'Sept 11, 2007' is well within the 'economy starting to slide' range of foreclosures and debt overburdens of the US consumer as ripples of financial turmoil issued from the WTC attacks, as someone planned.

The 9 New South Series indicates 'responsibilities with paperwork coming home to roost' (Brady's Predictive Astrology) -click above link to find the rest of this Eclipse' flavor - which points to all culprits including Fed chairman Ben Bernanke, whose PE it be.

9 New South is a 'young' are its details and history:

Initial Eclipse July 19, 1917 @ 25Can51 (conj US natal Mercury Rx); Mercury 3Leo13 (conj Pres. Obama's n Mercury 2:20); Venus *18Leo18 (conj Venus on 9/11/01 and the August 11, 1999 'Mother of All Eclipses" of Nostradamus fame); Mars 23Gem54 (just past a US Mars Return); Jupiter 3Gem48 (approaching US n Uranus 8Gem55 Rx); Saturn 3Leo04 (conj Mercury as noted); Uranus Rx 22AQ45 (where transiting Neptune, Jupiter, and Chiron have been hanging out recently and triggering the behavior patterns - shown by Uranus' sign - of this Series); Neptune 4Leo16 (conj US n North Node and 1917's Mercury and Saturn as noted); Pluto 4Can28 (conj US natal Venus and Jupiter); NN 9Cap49, so the Eclipse's SN is in the middle of the US natal planets in Cancer: Venus, Jupiter, and Sun. Tr SN had already conjoined and left behind US natal Mercury '25Can.'

'July 19, 1917' is manifestation #1. This Series also occurred on the following dates and we may relate them to historical events, if we had the time:

2. July 30, 1935 @ '6Leo' (conj US natal NN);
3. Aug 9, 1953 @ '17Leo' (see '18Leo' above);
4. Aug 20, 1971 @ '27Leo' (opposes US n Moon 27AQ10 in 'Sibly' chart);
5. March 7, 1989 @ '17Pisc'
6. Sept 11, 2007, as above

Next 9 New South Eclipse: Sept 21, 2025 @ '29Vir'...29 degr of any sign is always considered a critical or crisis degree.


Key as always: conj = conjunct; n = natal (birth); NN = North Node of the Moon; SN = Moon's South Node; degr = degree/s; Tr = transiting; Ecl = Eclipse; PE = Pre-Natal Eclipse.

*'18Leo' is also the degree of two of America's natal midpoints and quite an oil/water mix of energies: Mars/Saturn and Jupiter/Mc.

Astrology of Reagan's First Inauguration 1981

The text of Ronald Reagan's First Inaugural Address of Jan 20, 1981 attests that his was the first inaugural ceremony to be held on the West Front of the Capitol Building; thus Mr. Reagan was facing the Washington Monument and the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, as he notes in his address.

And yes, I believe that he was standing on their and others' "shoulders" as he said, but he was also looking into the distance while mentioning the Potomac River and Arlington National Cemetery with its simple crosses and Stars of David. Here is an example of a man speaking publicly in two realms at once (maybe more.) His 'code words' warmed the hearts of the religious folk who did so much to elect him and were so totally charmed and thrilled with him as president, yet Illuminati references are sprinkled throughout the speeches of his administration.

As I continue studying this chart and the Reagan years, I expect more of such references to become clear now that the NWO has its ugly head stuck out for all to see. Finding that more and more people (finally) see the trajectory of this one-world-government swill (which began way before Reagan's presidency) makes freebie blogging less of a time-waster in my book of working on behalf of the collective.

Well, Justice Warren Burger presided that 1981 day at noon, and five minutes after not being president anymore - which means 12:05 pm est - a secret service agent whispered in former President Carter's ear that the US hostages in Tehran had been released. This dirty-tricks episode finagled by the GOP and CIA to undermine the Democrats is perhaps one of the more visible examples of political cynicism and lowness ever recorded.

The CIA longed to cover up their previous meddlings and mayhems, of course, and the Rs were intent upon the presidency - a majority was gained for them in the Senate in 1980. And they desperately wanted to cover up their collusion with the CIA and certain Iranian officials in Tehran. The American people's concerns factored in not at all - and being honest with the people? Fugeddabowdit.

Below you see an image of the horoscope of the 1st Inauguration of Ronald Reagan with notations added, click to enlarge. Outside the chart and highlighted in green are Mr. Reagan's natal placements; a few US natal placements are added as well. (Ex: US natal Mercury Rx at Ic, as it is now but the Ic is a degree later these days. This places US natal Pluto at Midheaven, the Goal Point of any chart.

So we might wish to extend this picture to all US inaugurations since the switch to Jan 20 in 1933...Mercury/Pluto = ASC: exercising influence upon many people; intellectual domination of one's environment. - Tyl; Ebertin.) We may say that the switch for FDR's put our nation's natal Mercury/Pluo opposition from 1776 front and center with its persuasive speaking and writing; propaganda; crafty subtlety; the spirit of opposition; premature action vibes. (Ebertin.)

As you see, RR's inauguration in 1981 was a Mars-to-natal-Sun transit for the Gipper, among other things. His 'coronation' occurred during a Saturn (control; authority) Hour; the rising degree at noon of Jan 20 was a smidge earlier back then, thanks to precession, so it's at 13Tau47, conjunct Chiron 13:24 Rx ('crisis in values'); natal Moon and n North Node (NN) are rising indicating the successful candidate's fame, prominence, and popularity with the public bwo Hollywood, the Screen Actors' Guild, and the governorship of California. His 'good fortune' at being selected is indicated by NN - and Moon - in 1st house.

(And of course, 'guilds' conjure the image of Freemason lodges which began, unless I am mistaken, as guilds.) The Part of Brethren is rising, too, and I couldn't resist adding that little 'secret society' nugget for you.

Natal Moon/NN rising puts his natal Jupiter/SN on the Descendant, of course, and I've covered a good bit of that in my June 30 post about Reagan's Jupiter Return as he signed the Garn-St Germain Act and opened the deregulation door back in 1982. This is my "I knew it was You, Reagan" article.

1981's Sun 00AQ34 is where the Sun was on Jan 20, 2009 - and is where the transiting NN is this very day, but in 1981 no planets were in close conjunction with the Sun ('the leader'); however, Mercury 13AQ32 is conj South Node (SN) indicating thinking that's ahead or behind its time, a sense of isolation in one's thinking, planning, or communicating - others may take credit for one's ideas, plus, personal timing could be better with Mercury/SN. (But Reagan had astrologers to aid him with timing issues!)

Mars-to-n-Sun gives a surge of vitality (although RR's future health problems may be foreshadowed by Chiron conj ASC); enthusiastic endorsements come easily with this transit, courage shows and one demonstrates one's integrity and principles. Competitive situations come along and one is up for them - this would be in effect for the duration of his presidency, or at least for his first term, if you prefer.

(I tend to read presidential two-termers' inaugural charts as the 1st one representing the entire enchilada and the first 4 years, with the 2nd inaugural chart as the halfway mark, yet specific to the last 4 years. FDR's charts are of a different dynamic, of course, and more complex.)

The Iranian hostage crisis may also be indicated by Chiron Rx conj ASC.

1981's Uranus 29Sco17 in 7th house of Partnerships was conjoined by our Inaugural Moon (We-The-People) on Jan 20, 2009, which qualifies as a Moon-to-Uranus transit, indicating emotional upheavals and changing domestic lifestyles. Losing one's home and economic status can come under that category, and its dire consequences for our domestic concerns are signified by a crisis 29th degree, too...

'30Sco': "A Halloween Jester" (Iranian hostages freed as if on Reagan's watch, etc)...the Jones' Sabian Symbols gives this degree as having contempt for established values (see: Chiron conj ASC, above.)

Uranus opposite Midas Rx

Well, gold-hoarding Midas surely was rising back in 1981, and we know that the Decade of Greed - the 1980s - helped set the stage for our current circumstances. Guess Reagan really did stand on the shoulders of giants, didn't he?

All US presidents do, as the baton is passed and our much-touted 'Manifest Destiny' is further promoted. America's Great Seal has been turned over with Mr. Obama's selection (aka, 'election'), with its reverse now representing this nation...the all-seeing eye of Horus as the capstone upon the pyramid of power.

You may read my post on the Reaganomics Eclipse of 1981, if you wish.

Current transits are not entered on the Inaugural chart below, but it's interesting to note that transformative, destructuring Pluto conjoined 1981's Neptune 23Sag44 in 8th house off and on in 2005, crossed RR's natal ASC 27Sag16 in 2007 (Pluto has been in orb of these positions for the last few years actually), and the Dragon now pauses upon 1981's Minerva 00Cap35...and will conjunct and hang about with RR's natal Mars 3Sag59 beginning before the end of 2010.

Pluto-to-Mars: pursued interests from the past gain deeper determination; focus sharpens; greater control and power are sought.

Ronald Reagan's First Inauguration Jan 20, 1981, noon est, Capitol Building, Washington, DC; Full Moon 184 degr 51 mins; Saturn Hour; from historic record.

Given the health care reform contentiousness going on now, you may be interested in following The Washington Independent's link to the text and video of Ronald Reagan's 1980 comeback to Jimmy Carter concerning Medicare and the usual Republican boogie-man, "socialized medicine" (circa 1965.)

Pluto to Lockerbie Bombing chart Aug 20, 2009

Here's a Wiki link to details of the sad fate of Pan Am Flight 103, aka the Lockerbie Bombing of Dec 21, 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

As you've heard, a man serving time for the crime suffers from terminal cancer and has been released by the Scottish government, and the US government is sounding snake-mean as it calls for 'house arrest' as if the ill fellow needs to be kept in one place with his dire condition! (But perhaps it's only a little of the political theater I'm always grousing about.)

Here's a 'time capsule' news story from Jan 31, 2001 as CNN proclaimed Libyan guilty of Lockerbie Bombing. The guilty verdict took 11 years to announce.

Now wondering what transits, if any, to the chart for Dec 21, 1988, 19:02:46 GMT, were now in play, I found that tr Pluto 00Cap47 Rx this very day is conjunct 1988's Sun and Uranus which gives three midpoint pictures, with all three planets conjunct a World Point of the Cardinal axis (00Cap) - on Dec 21, 1988 Pluto was at '15Sco':

Sun/Uranus = tr Pluto: a new individual reality; a demand for new perspectives; a radical reformer; twists of fate; tragic experiences; great physical suffering; imprisonment.

Sun/Pluto = Uranus: carrying out fanatic reforms without regards for oneself; arrest; sudden change; rebellion; reform.

Uran/Pluto = Sun: revolution' the urge for independence and freedom; nervous over excitement; a breakdown. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

And Pluto to Sun? Past influences the present. Pluto to Uranus? Issues of freedom and independence with governmental involvement.

Wish I had more time to peek further into the matter, but it's time to motor into the city! Later...

Elections in Afghanistan August 20, 2009

Leo New Moon in Washington DC 8.20.09

New Moon 27Leo32; August 20, 2009, 6:01:31 am edt Washington DC, Hour of Saturn; chart-ruler Sun; New Moon opposes Jupiter Rx, Chiron Rx, and Neptune Rx 21 - 25 AQ (conj Descendant...but mostly the New Moon opposes Neptune.)

Sun/Moon = Neptune: misunderstandings in relationships; discontent; deception.

Midheaven (Mc = The Goal/Aspiration Point) 14Tau41 conjunct US Inaugural ASC (Presidential Oath of Office - on January 20s every 4 years at the Capitol Building.)

New Moon opposes US natal Moon in AQ (Sibly chart); US natal Moon now being transited by Neptune...sense of rootlessness; family relationships either become eroded or spiritually closer; mystery and confusion abound; creative and promotional talents may prosper.

Highlighted in orange, you can't miss the big honkin' YOD (Finger of God pattern, sextile base pointing to apex planet/ this chart it's Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune in AQ) since it kind of overlays the ASC of the New Moon chart here, with Venus/Saturn midpoint at ASC:

YODs signify special tasks, talents from an odd genius, neuroses, turning points, crises that seemingly have no solutions - the cosmos may have to give a hand, and/or adjustments which must be made. A diverging path is indicated, but things can't be rushed. Appropriate to the public discourse, there may be health or medical connotations to a YOD pattern as well.

And on a spiritual level, it's where one picks up the higher thread in order to follow God's will rather than work toward selfish aims at the expense of others...especially when outer (transpersonal) planets are involved in the pattern.

Venus/Saturn = ASC: emotional inhibitions; shyness; seeking solitude; separation.

Jupiter/Neptune = ASC: living in an unreal world; speculation; sharing great hopes with others; appearing to live in a world lighted by personal imagination and an emotionally rationalized agenda.

Perfecting during a Saturn Hour, we see emphasised with this New Moon (a new cycle beginning) that Saturn in 2nd house conjs Fixed Star, Denebola, keywords: to go against society; to swim against the mainstream.

Also in 2nd house of Earning Ability is Mercury, Exalted in Virgo 24:29 which sextiles US natal Mercury 24Can+ Rx, making car sales a continued hot tamale - at least for those who seek out the opportunity (sextile.) 'Cars' and 'sales' are both of Mercury's realm; trade issues are on the president's menu.

Highlighted in green is the T-Square configuration between Mercury/Uranus and Mars 26Gem36 (apex) in 11th house of Groups, Associations, Friends, Hopes, Wishes.

Merc/Uran = Mars: nervous drive finds the mark and usually pays off; courage; determination; the instincts of a fighter hitting home; summing things up quickly and acting accordingly; sudden success; nervousness; assaults; a sudden realization of ideas.

These T-Squared energies may signify the recent arrest of the hacker who stole the most credit and debit card details ever (since his last big online heist - he's already in jail) along with two or more accomplices who are represented by Mars in multiple and duplicitous Gemini (Gem = communications; Merc/Uran = computers; Mars = males, and more specifically, Mars = instigators and agents.)

You'll notice that much hinges upon Saturn at the New Moon because the old timekeeper is the one planet involved in both the YOD and the T-Square.

Well, hopefully you can click to enlarge the chart and read a few more details. I don't especially care for this New Moon chart although it is said to be a powerful one as New Moons go. Creative projects should really rev up over the weekend which gives the Moon time to grow in light. Perhaps I'll draw.

And yes, you're right. The crisis situation between the New Moon and the spiritual~health~speculation trio in AQ (Jup, Chir, Nep) is descriptive of the health care 'debate' going on now, and of our health care systems' decrepitude and frauds.

So with a new cycle beginning in spirit-of-endeavor Leo, perhaps around the time of the Full Moon in two weeks, we'll be in sight of a resolution of some sort. Or at least we'll have more details on the bill.


The pressure from the YOD is so extreme, it breaks up the whole system into smithereens, and the legislative process turns into a bigger mush than it is now, if their Political Theater is to be believed. And I always think that most of their rehearsed bluster is 'on purpose', meant to slow things down, or to not pass bills the powers-that-be don't want passed. (Gotta protect that bottom line.)

(Originally about the health care reform efforts, I said that the proof would be whether Congress acts on behalf of the people and accomplishes something practical, or whether reform languishes in willy-nilly-land. Not my original words, but you know what I mean - show me the outcome of all their fine 'debate' - aka, wing-flapping and squawking to establish or maintain pecking order.)

Plus, as you see notated in 12th house, with the Moon's South Node conjunct July 21's Solar Eclipse 29Can27, we're all getting the full treatment now from the Eclipse's 'systems fail; new methods needed' influence.

After all, how many times have you heard or read the word 'system' in the news in recent months?

Midpt pics: Tyl; Ebertin; any-all-or-none may apply.

Jupiter's Moons Captured on Film: Io and Ganymede!

Swine Flu vaccine memo leaks: paralysis possible

Memo leaked!

But are reactions only kneejerk 'Never Trust the Government' propaganda, perhaps backed by anti-Dem partisans? Of are reports of the serious health risks from the vaccinations of 1976 worth being concerned about?

Personally, I'm inclined to opt out of the drive to inject, how about you?

And for children? I'd sooner school them at home than participate. But I no longer have school-aged children running about the place. I shudder for the parents who must put their children's well-being on the line for a State that seems headed for the totalitarian model of draconian heavy-handedness.

The phrase, Like lambs to the slaughter comes to mind. And people - even scientists - have been known to make mistakes that force others to suffer from their misjudgments. Any thoughts?

Howard Dean and 'public option' health insurance

'DR. NANCY SNYDERMAN: If we took a public option and retooled it somewhat, why not make the case to the American public that we will allow people below the age of 65 to buy into Medicare even if there's some trimming that has to be done out of that budget too?

DR. HOWARD DEAN: That's all I want. If you allowed people to buy into Medicare who are below 65 years old, that's a public option, and that's what we need.'

You've probably read or heard about Howard Dean's solution for the 'public option' maze of cross purposes we're being treated to while support for any reform melts away like a polar ice cap, exposing Atlantis' library of scrolls underneath...

So I'm passing on this snippet of his interview here as my way of saying, Listen to the doctor on this one. It's worth a try.

Now. Wonder what exactly he means by, "buy into"?

Tom Delay to compete on Dancing with the Stars!

6:06 pm edt: NPR just made my day by announcing that 'Godfather' Tom Delay will be hoofing it on Dancing with the Stars...will that be, Dancing with the Czars?

How weird for the dancer training him in tripping the light fantastic!

Yes, I'll manage okay, as long as this TV stint won't give him the idea that's he's some kind of a 'star'.

Actually, Kelly Osbourne will be a stylish addition, I think!

Solar/Lunar Eclipses affecting Russia's natal chart

Natal chart of modern Russia, Dec 8, 1991; 7:45 pm EET; Moskva (Moscow); historical record; Hour of Venus 2Sco50 in 4th house; Chart-ruler Sun 16Sag08 conjunct Mercury 15:51 Rx, in 5th house.

Uranus 12Cap20, Moon 14Cap25, Neptune 15:22, from 5th house into 6th house; Saturn 3AQ27 in 6th house (note: Russia's natal Saturn conjuncts Jan 20, 2009's US Inaugural Jupiter 3AQ32 in Inaugural 10th house.)

As I read today of the troubles in Russia, I am moved to take a look at Russia's natal horoscope and see that the recent/current Lunar and Solar Eclipses are affecting the Big Bear's national chart.

July 7, 2009's Lunar Eclipse 15Cap24 'eclipsed' natal Uranus, Moon (the people), and Neptune (the masses) in Capricorn, 5th to 6th house.

Our current Eclipse season of July 21/22, 2009's Solar Eclipse 29Can27, conjuncts natal Nemesis 29Can49 Rx in 12th house, but is actually another lunation manifestation from Russia's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, the 11 South.

Highlighted in red in 12th house you see Russia's PE '19Can' in which the establishment of the current incarnation of the Russian state was implemented. Therefore, the same issues and themes from that time (1991) are again awakened across the steppes.

As you know, the 11S Series is the 'systems fail; new methods and ideas are needed to deal with events brought by the Eclipse; any blocks may be violently or tragically removed.' (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

The whole world, in tandem with Pluto's transformative mission through the sign of structure, government, law, and business (Capricorn) is under siege from old systems failing or falling down on the job. If we could only figure out what went with the tax monies that were set aside for such systems overhaulings, we could ask the bandits to pay up!

And now here's a Round-Up of current Russian headlines, some with a marine flavor which relates to natal Moon/Neptune being eclipsed on July 7; plus, the July Solar Eclipse fell in the Water sign of The Crab, Cancer:

There's been a deadly 'accident' from dam burst or explosion at a Russian power plant; 10 dead, dozens still unaccounted for. (July 7 Lunar Ecl affecting natal Uranus = 'electricity' and, of course, Moon (the public) and Neptune (water.)

Russia's missing merchant ship has been found off the coast of West Africa.

Russia okayed to purchase German shipyard.

Russian officials blame Islamic militants for deadly suicide attack in Ingushetia; EU said to be miffed. ('Miffed' is my word. jc)

Kremlin's proxy policy contributes to anarchy in 'unruly' provinces.

German-Russian summit in Sochi emphasizes trade, so they say.

"Banking secrecy saves lives" according to the Prince of Liechenstein (who may have his own reasons for saying such a thing. jc)

Merely a Lull in 'A Furious Storm'?

Is President Obama's rosy glow of an early economic upswing for real?

Or is it merely a lull in the eye of the financial hurricane?

Opposite America's natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx is an Illumination Point, an unconscious point that may be worth considering in this financial crisis. And since Pluto is Rx in our nation's natal chart (July 4, 1776), I'm using the 'rounding down' method.

Each degree is linked to what's come before and what degree's symbol comes after - a process of evolution, so more than one degree may be looked at for information, including those degrees that square, trine, etc, the point/degree you're considering. The Symbols are often used in rectification work, for some paint such an accurate picture that they bring a chart into precise focus (when an exact time isn't known, for horoscope calculations hinge upon knowing the hour/minute/second of a person's, entity's, or event's moment of beginning.)

In the case of the current financial crisis, I am inspired today by the archetypal use in current news stories and presidential statements of the word, storm, and people's loss of their homes all across America, no matter the cause. Loss of employment seems the most prevalent cause to me for mortgage payments depend upon having adequate income. Duh.

Yet even wildfire evacuations apply, especially if it's you and yours who suddenly have no pillows for your heads tonight.

And of course, there's Pluto's connection to The Underworld, including crime syndication; plus, he's also the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, the spy, assassin, and saboteur. Our country has been saboteured, don't you think? But is America down for the final count?

As evidenced in Astrology by Pluto's laborious traversal of the early degrees of structured Capricorn in opposition to America's natal planets in Cancer - Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and later on, Mercury - Pluto's 'secret hand' guise is guiding the financial show as 'he' heads toward our nation's eventual Pluto Return. Are we witnessing US leaders and foreign investors in conflict with one another - or in partnership working against We-The-People?

These questions are part of the reasons I keep grousing that secret manipulators engineered 2008's econo-crash which only crescendoed was a long time coming, due to the measured slowness and stealth of Pluto, who forever transforms...

A Little Illumination of US Pluto:

'27 Cancer'..."A Furious Storm Rages Through a Residential Canyon" = INTENSIFICATION...a pyramiding reality on the side of external circumstances, or of violence and terror as divine in their capacity for uplifting man out of his aplomb and demanding some manifestation of his inner ideals and enduring values.

Here is indomitable integrity of everything to be taken as of consequence in its own right, shown in the energy with which it preserves itself. Nature ever dramatizes man's unleashed powers, or his ability to rise in supremacy over each momentary crisis.

positive expression: an enlistment of every resource in life for a heightened expression of self;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: fatuous enjoyment of turmoil.

"Rise in supremacy"? But didn't America do that already? Then I'm guessing that the goal of world financial collapse is just that - to delete American supremacy from the planet's files.

And you thought we were bad.

Astrology Forecast for the Week of Aug 17 - 23, 2009

Are you looking for a Weekly Astrology Forecast for Aug 17 - 23, 2009?

Whoa, there!

Because astrologer Julie Demboski really kicks Fated Undertow's tush with her insights and advice, so check it out before the week wanes without you.

And see my previous post for a SpaceWeather News link to Monday morning's dawn show of beauty as performed by the Crescent Moon, Venus, and (if you're in the right spot on the planet) an ISS flyby to spice things up with its modernity of techiness.

Monday, Aug 17, 2009: Venus, Crescent Moon, ISS flyby

This just in...

Space Weather News for Aug 16, 2009

MONDAY MORNING SKY SHOW: Set your alarm for dawn. On Monday morning, Aug 17, Venus and the Crescent Moon will gather beautifully close together in the eastern sky. For many observers in North America, the International Space Station (ISS) will make an appearance, too. It's a fantastic way to begin the day.

Check for a sky map and ISS flyby predictions.


And astrologically we check our software or ephemeris to see that Moon @ 13Cancer will be conjunct US natal Sun at sunrise on Aug 17, 2009, with Venus in Cancer, too - almost at critical degree, 20 Cancer. That's emphasizing Pluto's Heliocentric North Node '20Can'; and Venus/Pluto contacts can bring jealousies, transformative Art and/or Love, and bankruptcies, among other things.

Relationships of all kinds are being given a celestial heads-up.

August 17, 2009 in Washington, DC, sunrise edt:

Sun 24Leo39 rises in opposition to US natal Moon in Aquarius, Sun/Moon midpoint conjoins President Obama's natal Mercury 2Leo20 for this picture...

Sun/Moon = Mercury: thoughts about marriage and relationships in general; plans for fulfillment. (This picture is supported by the involvement of 2009 Inaugural Mercury Rx 00AQ+.)

And perhaps Mr. Obama's natal Jupiter in AQ (opposite his n Mercury) can join in for a big ole group hug:

Sun/Moon = Jupiter: enthusiasm for life; success; desire for joint endeavors; sound mental and emotional disposition; marriage; a happy relationship.

Well, Happy Monday, Everyone - even if you 'accidentally' sleep past dawn's lovely celestial show!

Stars Over US Presidencies

At leisure I have now re-read the Visual Astrology Newsletter's issue concerning Fixed Star parans to US presidents' natal charts and the portents of US Inaugurations from the perspective of their dates and locations being changed at key times in US history.

First it was George Washington on Wall Street, then Philadelphia, then on to Washington...scenarios of crimes and crescendos of political power. And of the people's power, such as we, at any given time, realize it and its usefulness.

Why fuss about stars? Because our inaugural reschedulings and locational adjustments have brought new star parans into play for our nation while morphing the character of the Office of the Presidency and its idealisms into different kettles of fish being forced onto America's menu.

And We-the-People have been choking on hidden fishbones ever since!

So because the US presidency and its Oath of Office symbolize, on one level, our system of government (a republic masquerading as a democracy), the evidence of this transformation is clearly displayed in star lore of mythic proportions, so check out - or review - this issue of Brady's and Gunzberg's excellent Visual Astrology Newsletter as it lays out for you a broader picture of history's underpinnings.

Plus, with a mere 'click,' you'll discover that some US Inauguration charts are displayed including the one for Jan 20, 2009, noon est, Washington, DC, held for former Senator Barack Obama, whose Presidential Oath was so nice, he's taken it twice.

Hopefully, this mooted the opportunity for Horatio's Oath to be taken as well.

But I wouldn't bank on it.

And speaking of US Inaugurations, here's my most basic pet peeve about how we do them: the Bible says not to swear oaths on it. Personally, I'm inclined to take its advice on this matter very seriously. But then I'm not a politician swaggering around imagining myself to be above the laws of God. Or of men.

Edgar Allan Poe natal chart Jan 19, 1809

On the occasion of upcoming Halloween celebrations, and with Oct 7, 2009 being the 160th anniversary of Poe's sad, mysterious death, here's a newspaper account of the Poe Toaster's ritual from Jan 21, 1999 which has witnesses saying the mysterious visitor arrived at the brick-walled cemetery "just before 3 am."

For astrologers, it's tiresome how times given are always "just before" or "shortly after" in most news reports, for you'd think no one ever had an accurate sun dial in their gardens or watch in their pockets, to hear some reporters (almost) tell it. Guess the journalism I studied back in the olden days with its Who-What-When-Where-How? model counts for little anymore. Or, nevermore, considering our subject here.

Anyway, the annual visit of respect from the 'Poe Toaster' occurs on the author's birthday, Jan 19, each year which gives a Sun position in the 28 to 29 degree range of Capricorn. Poe's natal Mercury @ 28Cap+ 'under the beams' of the Sun made objective thinking a bit difficult and doubly Saturnian bwo Cap. Why, the Sun burned his hairline right back from his addled and anxious pate! Yet the Sun/Mercury conjunction indicates a brilliant intellect for Mr. Poe. Emotionally, his was a different tale through suffering, despair, and loss.

Physically the poet and short-story author - the Father of the Modern Detective Novel - was known for his prominent brow or forehead, so check with Wikipedia for photos of The Raven's macabre inventor-writer Mr. E. A. Poe.

Yes, it's tempting to spend all night as I'm doing now perusing the website of the E. A. Poe Society of Baltimore where conflicting accounts of his life and death are well detailed with a chronology, portraits of his gentlemanly self with its broad "Moon-like" brow, as well as pictures of other family members, friends, and colleagues. There are 13 known portraits of the poet as far as is known, and several daguerreotypes do seem to have been spirited away from libraries through the years into mysterious realms of collectors' (undeserving) vaults.

Combing the E. A. Poe Society's site finally gave up what I wanted - Poe's time of death, but as with All Things Poe, a mystery remains due to two conflicting sources: one says '3:00 am' and the other one, '5:00 am' (Oct 7, 1849, aged 40.) Yet dying in a hospital, even in 1849, you'd think there would be an official time. As an astrologer, naturally this doubles the effort and time as two charts for Poe's passing must be set up and studied.

(If the 3:00 am Poe Toaster mentioned above was 'on time' he could have been marking Poe's time of death - or arriving near a 2:00 or 3:38 am birth time - argghh!)

The '5:00 am' death chart (displayed below) has the most angular contacts - and a 'biggie' conjunction exactly on the 8th cusp - so it is the chart I prefer.

And here is a non-Wiki biographical account of his life which mentions his chronic alcoholism as do all sources, an addiction not unusual in the 1800s. He and his two siblings were left orphaned when both their parents died in 1811; Edgar was only two years old. His brother William died young, and his sister Rosalie went mad - being destitute can do that for you.

Poe himself was adopted by a tobacco merchant and his wife and was over-indulged as he grew up which led him to expect a large inheritance which didn't pan out due to a falling out with his foster father...Poe dropped out of West Point against the older man's wishes, for one thing. His adoptive family is where the middle name of 'Allan' comes from though for much of his life he was known, and signed his name as, Edgar Poe.

Astrology of Edgar Allan Poe's Life and Death

In my old astro-databank files, I had a version of his birth chart for 1:00 am with a Rodden Rating of C; other verified times are given as possibilities and vary from 1:30 am, 2:00 am, 3:38 am, and 7:57 am. That's hours of work to check them all out for best results, but some strong factors stand out that have to do with loss, depression, and alcoholism (demon alcohol only makes depression worse, for as they say, "troubles can swim.")

If family records do state that he was born "3 hours after mother left the theater" as one source cites, then I have doubts about the 7:57 am chart; thus, the other birth times seem more feasible. Plus, the Poe Toaster's middle-of-the-night visits would synchronize more closely with any of the earlier times.

Note: if a reference is made to 'drugs,' I am always including alcohol.

Edgar Allan Poe, born on Jan 19, 1809, in Boston, Massachusetts...the '1:00 pm LMT' natal chart produces a Secondary Progressed chart for his date of death (using '5:00 am' for death) showing Saturn/Neptune = ASC 4Sag06: oppressive family circumstances; an emotionally depressing environment; emotional suffering caused by others; limitation of freedom (such as couping?); feeling confined (in hospital?); sense of being out of the group (Ebertin; Tyl.)

But which natal ASC to use?

Using his '3:38 am LMT' birth chart gives you Saturn/Neptune = ASC 4Sag17 in the natal chart which could relate to his sad orphaned situation, loss of both parents, illnesses, etc. 'Loss (Saturn) through drugs (Neptune)' springs to mind, too.

The '3:38 am' natal chart when progressed to day/time of death gives 7Cap23 rising conj Fixed Star, Facies (ruthlessness, or the victim); this Sec chart has a very interesting and possibly pertinent Sec midpoint at Mc, too...

Mars/Uranus = Mc: putting a pistol to someone's head; taking violent or drastic measures; injury, accident, or surgery. (I think again of couping. And the Part of Death in this version of Poe's Sec chart is 00Cap33, a point conjunct the IC (Endings; The Drain) in his death chart for 5:00 am.)

Click the chart to enlarge and you'll also see in 4th house the transiting Sun/Saturn midpoint which is conjunct his Sec ASC (using '3:38 am' as his natal chart) so we have...

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

Yet there's a lot to be said for the '1:00 pm' chart which has 3Sco34 rising, and a Scorpio ASC indicates grievous loss at some point in the early life (plus, he was only 40 at death); but a Sag ASC is ruled by Jupiter indicating publishing, idealism, and over-indulgence...take your pick!

One point in favor of Sco rising, however, is his oft-remarked-upon eyes...a Scorpio ASC trait, especially if they're penetrating; Poe's were said to be remarkable, arresting, intelligent, and beautiful, so again it's somewhat inconclusive. His nose looks a bit on the beaky side, too, another point scored for Sco rising. Guess I may ultimately go with the 1:00 am chart (or 1:30 am) for its Sco ASC, yet it's obvious that conjectures on Poe's birth time are abundant.

In his natal chart, Poe has a conjunction of Uranus/North Node which can indicate political reformist groups, or transformative politics in general. In his Sec chart for date of death, Uranus had already turned Rx by progession and was conj natal NN 9Sco28/33 in 11th house of Groups, Associations, and Friends...'sudden and/or disruptive (Uranus) meetings or encounters (NN.)'

At death, transiting Mercury 8Sco20 was in the midst of the Uran/NN conj, so we have this midpoint picture:

Uran/NN = Mercury: impetuousness; excited thoughts shared; being united in thoughts with others; criticism of others; fast-traveling news; speedy comprehensions.

At the 'champagne supper' his old West Point friends invited him to (before he disappeared from public view) did literary critic Poe critique a certain Whig candidate who used 'couping' to kidnap and beat up people until they aggreed to vote for him? Was Poe 'coup'd' from the street after he left their boozy company?

Natally, Poe's Sun 28Cap+ and Pisces Moon in the midst of a Venus, Pluto, Jupiter line-up in Watery, Creative Pisces) give him a Sun Cap/Moon Pisces blend whose 'Images for Integration' are: A wine collector uncorks a rare vintage to celebrate success...Bilbo in Tolkein's Lord of the Rings...A child builds a sandcastle of reinforced concrete...Bathers in a Landscape by Cezanne (who shares this blend natally, as do I.)

And now here is Poe's death chart for 5:00 am LMT, Oct 7, 1849, Baltimore, MD. As you see, the '5 am' chart gives the usual suspects - at the time of death - on chart angles: Mars 29Gem41 at Mc, Saturn Rx 3Ari48 on Descendant, the setting position of the chart. Moon is just beyond angularity as previously mentioend, and World Points are on each angle relating to Poe's enduring fame and prominence.

8th cusp of Transformation and Death have the Uranus/Pluto pair snugged around it; the brittle, separative Saturn/Uranus and cruel Saturn/Pluto midpoints in Aries both oppose SunLib01 in 1st house of Physical Body...

Sat/Uran = Sun: separation; exposure to severe tests of strength.

Sat/Pluto = Sun: ill health; loss.

As you know Mars' sign of Gemini is related to lungs (air) and nerves or nervous diseases; Libra (ASC and Sun) relates to lungs and kidneys.

Moon 22Gem43 has just crossed MC, too and thus may be considered angular as well; Moon is apex of the Jupiter/Saturn combo which relates to liver and gall functions, chronic illnesses, and to lung diseases such as TB; generally, infections may be indicated (Ebertin.)

Yes, Poe's years of emotional shocks, undermining of his health through drugs, chronic or other illnesses, etc, only made it more difficult for him to fight whatever ailed him, whether being kidnapped and beaten or not, during his last physical crisis.

As you know, a YOD pattern ('Finger of God' - sextile aspect at base, both planets inconjunct a third; in this case, there are two YODs superimposed...Moon/Uranus and Mars/Pluto both point to Chiron 25Sco18) - is often present in death charts. Poe's Pre-Natal Eclipse from the 9 North Series is being triggered by wounded Chiron in Scorpio and by the health-related YODs.

9N = accidents, violence, or sudden physical events. This is also the PE of Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12, 1809), Tony Blair, John Edwards, and Bobby Jindall; plus, 9N is the PE of President Garfield's Inauguration March 4, 1881 and you know of his violent end.

Poe's death occurred during a 14 North Solar Eclipse Series with the Eclipse manifesting @ 25Leo07 and Poe's Sec Moon triggering it at death.

14N = an acute time of confusion in personal relationships, unrequited love and despiar (he'd just had a broken engagement), and unexpected financial events (money troubles had he), a draining of energy, and an odd turn of events; there is too much delusion to make clear judgments (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

(14N next occurs on Nov 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37, just so ya know.)

At Mc (the Goal Point of any chart) is the Pluto/NN (powerful or political connections or encounters) with the 29th crisis degree Mars, so we have...

Pluto/NN = Mars: tyranny; exhibition of personal power; demonstrating violence or brutality in the presence of others; a desire to make others amenable to one's wishes; the misfortune to be placed in someone else's hand or power.

Plu/NN = Mc: associations influence one's objectives and cause setbacks in one's vocation.

(Drunken champagne suppers and brutal couping tactics must once again come to mind.)

Also you see there's a T-Square pattern formed by angular Saturn Rx...

Saturn/ASC = Mars: feeling like the victim; being placed in turbulent circumstances; self-willedness; separation; mourning or bereavement.

Saturn/ASC = Mc: oppression; depression; inhibited by others; hindered in the fulfilment of one's objectives; struggling with controls.

Well, there are many more factors to mention about Edgar Allan Poe's life, death, and the Astrology thereof, but my typing finger is falling off so I must close for now and hope that you may click some links, view the chart for more notations, and have yourself a very safe Halloween!

And in remembrance of Edgar...perhaps a group reading of The Raven would be in order?


As always 'any, all, or none' may apply with midpoint pictures, and Progressed and/or transiting planets will trigger events to manifest most reliably.

Jupiter Direct Station 17AQ10 10.13.09

Before you in black and white, you see a map showing the 1st minute and second of Jupiter's Direct Station 17AQ10 on Oct 13, 2009, 00:34:18 am edt, Washington, DC USA. The precise moment depends, of course, on the exactitude of one's software, which is quite naturally tossed off slightly by Moon Wobbles and other Quirks of the Universe.

How constantly grateful am I not to be even remotely responsible as the one who keeps our solar system's planets in their courses!

~Click image to enlarge/read notations and scribbles~

There is the grouchy Mars/South Node rising with North Node, the Dragon's Head, conjunct US natal Pluto. The look of the chart is disturbing and I prefer not mentioning it in too fine a detail for now. Perhaps you might study it for yourself and let me know what you decide. For now, let's discuss Jupiter's new condition as of Oct 13 as a planet (seemingly) moving ahead in the zodiac...

So imagine you're in DC (aka, the District of Columbia) during the wee hour of 12:34 am edt on Tuesday, Oct 13, 2009, and the Jolly Giant~Rotund Monk~Major General~Professor-the Banker of Means, performs a symbolic about-face resulting in things of a Jupiterian nature beginning - slowly at first, he's a big'un - to move forward where for months they'd been stalled, delayed, or grudgingly offered.

Well! That may be a wisp of fresh air!

This particular Direct Station of Jupiter closely conjuncts my daughter's natal Mars, so we'll see...perhaps sales will pick up even more in her Etsy Shop of Handspun and Dyed Yarns, or hubby will receive a bounty of some sort. Actually, a Direct Jupiter may benefit a lot of people (in Aquarius, sign of groups. Hey! What about Health Care Reform? Not a novel ideal, but...)

2009 Jupiter conj Neptune 3x = The Speculators, Gamblers, and Spendthrifts Among Us

Yes, hyper-inflation, inflation, and the over-printing of US monies fall under sway of 2009's year-long festival of the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Neptune, a bubbly affair. Increased spirituality? For those receptive, yes. Lovely!

But financially speaking, these big guys are the Speculator Pair when scamming together. Fraud is often a partner when Neptune's deceptive tendencies meld with Jupiter's promises which can turn out to be over-estimations or pie-in-the-sky flights of whimsical fancy - not necessarily or consciously meant to deceive, yet deceive they may.

Jupiter's position at any time indicates where over-optimism may snuggle deep while over-reach creeps into the foundations and cornerstones...the first big wind swoops it all out to sea like a chilly mist over the cape...Neptune's waters are stronger than Saturn's stone or Jupiter's mantra.

Chill with Saturn

To counterbalance an over-abundant Jupiter, we need Saturnian stability and, rein in our exuberance, else it will grow irrational if left unattended. In a word, wild.

But things in Life and Astrology are always mixtures of +-, of yin and yang, male-fem, dark and light. So when Jupiter relates to others in an egomaniacal and unbalanced way, we often see a difficult personality that has necessarily developed many facets (masks) in the past for hiding the holes of the traits he doesn't possess. Parts of a human psyche go...missing and distorted. Ex: your average anti-social criminal types are 'missing' consciences for one reason or another.

Those of an I'm-on-the-world-stage-look-at-me mentality are simply ruthless to a much higher - make that, deeper - level, and their actions can affect larger numbers of people. They're hard to miss, so you probably know their names of the big ponzi scheme the world is saddled with. Think 'usury interest rates' and 'war profiteers' and you'll have most of them squirming in a giant pile already.

Astrologically, one signature for such a bigger-than-life egotist is a birth (natal) chart with all planets posited on one side (hemisphere) of a the 360 degree chart (circle.)

One clear example of this one-sided phenomena is George W. Bush of New Haven, CT.

You must have moxy, use of a good hynotist, and you must hold high a major goal to strive for, in order to reach the presidency and "catapult the propaganda" for the backers; yes, that's the job description someone gave W when he signed on to robot for the cause. He thoughtlessly passed the phrase on while on camera. To be crude, why should he have cared who knew? It's in the bag!

(Now other countries' presidencies and ministerships are much the same, of course. But it's America of which I speak - where Rs saluted and praised Bush after 9/11, almost as if he'd accomplished a feat which, for other men, would have been impossible. He stayed out of the way while Washington, DC, New York City, and __?__ (Pennsylvania) were attacked. Rotund monk Dick Cheney was behind a curtain with control panel in hand and button at elbow.)

So next time you spy a president or VP in your neighborhood, on TV, radio, iPhone, online, or wherever, please ask - of no one in particular - "What wealthy shadows back this nag?"

Then follow the whiff of money as it leads you by the nose like a cartoon cat or a mouse after cheese.

And let the world know what you find! At least that's what I'd do.

Is Health Care Reform in the US really necessary?

You decide if Health Care Reform in the US is really necessary.

Cheney's influence on Bush waned

Turns out, from all the squawkin' Dick Cheney is now doing, we learn that he's admitting that his ifluence on George Bush waned during the 2nd term of the Bush-Cheney regime, aka 'administration' the Dick is miffed.

Napoleon Bonaparte on Banks and Government

"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes...Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain."

Napoleon Bonaparte, 1815


You were a megalomaniacal freak, Sir, but here you speak truth.
