Reconciliation Bill signed w/ US natal Jupiter rising 3.30.10

March 30, 2010: another 22-Pens Day for President Obama!

At 11:33 am edt today, President Obama signed the Reconciliation Bill for Student Loans and Health Care Reforms even though 'Lack of Care' seems more where we're headed due to a sparse primary care worker force. For too long those who went into Medicine went in for the big bucks yet not all go into service for this reason - some actually go into service to go into service for the common good. But many doctors in America do have their Porche payments to make, you know. And exotic isles with glimmering golf courses may await them.

NPR has a Health Care Reform round-up of articles in chronological order which reads in large part like a schedule of March 2010.

Ascending today at Nova Community College, Northern Virginia, for the signing ceremony at 11:33 am edt is 4Can05 bringing America's natal Jupiter upon the scene (Venus having just arisen - money and valuable things.) And confidence is jovial Jupiter's forte!

Well, if the President's plan to take out the middle men in the student loan industry does result in the savings he envisions, students will benefit along with society. Our country needs the upgrade of community colleges which the President proposes for medical professions may be prepared for there and computer technology has been a staple of these institutions for years - why not ramp things up?

At this Hour of the Moon (changes; publicity) the serious leader Sun/Saturn midpoint also arose, so we have...

Sun/Saturn = ASC: possible health threat (plus, SN is in 1st house conjunct asteroid Hopi, keywords: ambush; prejudice - but the Secret Service is on the case); being misunderstood; separation.

South Node is a separative point, it's true, but near ASC it may also mean 'outstanding in his field' and may represent an unusually successful achiever.

With US natal Jupiter...

Sun/Saturn = n Jupiter: break-up of an entire value system for eventual recovery and gain (!); cloud with a silver lining; a fortunate separation.

Perhaps this is the 'separation' of middle-men bankers from the student loan process thus saving money.

At Midheaven (Goal; Aspirations) 12Pis42 is another midpoint, one I keep a squinty eye on as it traverses the heavens: Uranus/Neptune, significator of the NWO, timed by their Great Conjunction/s of 1993...@ '18Cap'...where tr NN has been hanging out for several days now.

Uranus/Neptune = MC: guidance sought from never-before-taped sources; inner vision; dissolution.

And Uran/Nep = NN: meeting with people who care about one's future.

The Uranus/Chiron midpoint at MC implies new reforms and innovations and possible political chaos. We'll see what hay the GOP tries to fork Obama's way as the hours go by while they defend Republican staffers' running up tabs at bondage nightclubs. (Diverting story that, but I have no time to follow up.)

Chart-ruler Moon makes only one applying aspect in the 11:33 am edt chart: she opposes Mercury (7A55) with Mercury 25Ari13 in 11th house of Groups and Associations, and Moon 17Lib18 conjunct 5th cusp 17:13. This is the head (Merc) vs heart (Moon) aspect and may symbolize the left-right brain split which continues to bedevil this nation's Politics as it is continually acted out with tiresome 'Rs v Ds' quarrels that divert the players so often and completely that they can hardly find time to 'serve' the people who sent them to Capitol Hill.

Now for the T-Square patterns involved in the signing's loosely knitted Grand Cross (if you count the ASC as an outlet for the planetary energies)...

Pluto/ASC = Sun: seeing a whole new avenue for development and success; 'full steam ahead': attaining respect and esteem for physical prowess; ruthless conduct toward others.

Pluto/ASC = Saturn: oppressive dealings with others; high potential for great difficulty and loss; subjected to coercive measures or forcible suppression.

Another picture tells a tale of inventions, inspirations, and new ideas: Mercury/Neptune = Uranus.

What? ASC '5Can' = " At a Railroad Crossing, an Automobile Is Wrecked by a Train" which describes the bad stuff that can happen when an individual pits his will 'carelessly' against 'the power of the collective will of society.'

Other than increasing the deficit, I can't imagine that a majority of Americans can be against the student loan part of the Reconciliation Bill the President signed this morning. It's the Health Insurance Reform parts of it I'm not so certain about.

However, this very day, transiting Mars 2Leo31 (in 2nd house of Money at 11:33 am edt) is triggering Mr. Obama's natal Mercury, planet of signings, bills, laws, agreements, announcements, speeches, discussions, crossroads, trade and commerce. He did sound a little revved up during his speech, didn't he?

Perhaps this evening at the White House French President Sarkozy will notice a certain verve or force in Mr. Obama's repartee over dinner!

Libra Full Moon 3.29.10, Cheney's role in 9/11, and the Vatican

Now both readers of this blog thought I'd lost my marbles a few years ago in asserting that then-VP Dick Cheney was a major orchestrator-enabler in the attacks of 9/11/01 even though they too could view Cheney's Secondary Progressions set for 9/11/01, and see his Secondary Pluto/Chiron midpoint at Sec Midheaven (Goals; Aspirations) -- on that very morning.

Were Pluto/Chiron's primal violence, oppression, disenfranchisement, fascism, and corporatism his goals? Have those outcomes transpired?

Synchronistically, on the morning of 9/11/01, the transiting midpoint of Pluto/Chiron 17Sag51 conjoined Cheney's natal Mars (in his natal 4th house; Sec IC 28Cap43 conjoined his Sec Mars 29Cap26, degrees which conjunct US natal and US Sec Pluto.) There are other correspondences between the charts, yet I leave it to you to check out Dick's 9/11 progressions with 9/11/01 transits and the US natal chart if you will.

Enter 2010, and there are military folk more involved with such things than this blogging gnat can ever be, people who are coming out point blank and saying: Cheney Responsible for 9/11.

One thing I always marveled at during the days, months, and years after 9/11: that Cheney's well-known role in standing down America's air defenses that morning (as if it were a game) wasn't addressed in the mainstream media - at all, that I could find.

There were so many large birds killed with 'one stone' on 9/11!

Ex: invading Iraq in order to fulfill an over-arching agenda to plunder resources of the Middle East and establish yet another imperialist power base, an extension of the process of gaining global domination through perpetual war, and an attempt domestically to legitimize the Bush-Cheney administration after its squirrelly installment by the SCOTUS - those, and more, are the Zionist neocons' alleged 'new Pearl Harbor' justifications for a violent false flag op being perpetrated against the American people on 9/11/01 which, as global Vulcans expected, allowed them to lead us into war by utilizing an emotionally based patriotism.

Yet these days, it's become a very tattered cover-up (see above article.)

However, this evening at 10:25 pm edt over the White House (White Lodge - this is still a debateably Freemason Nation; Hour of Saturn), a Full Moon 9Libra17 (Sun 9Aries17) - spotlights her separating T-Square with apex Pluto 5Cap24 (in 2nd house of Values, Relationships, and Money) when the Full Moon perfects; Full Moon in DC occurs across the 5/11 Will axis which includes Groups and Associations, and Risk-Taking and Gambling.

(Pluto's '6Cap' = "A Dark Archway with Ten Logs at the Bottom"...THRESHOLD...(on which man) may pause in order to safeguard his further advance. My reading of Pluto's current symbol within Mundane Astrology? NWO types have lots and lots of patience.)

Yes, the energies of tonight's T-Square are passing, yet with Full Moons indicating culminations, fulfilments, or endings of something begun at the last New Moon (March 15 @ 25Pis10), we might reasonably check out the midpoint picture's interpretation while considering all that obsessive, one-track Pluto has accomplished so far in his de-structuring process while traversing Capricorn's Saturn-related realms such as government, law, and business:

Sun/Moon = Pluto: changed circumstances or biased attitudes lead to critical phases of development in life or to separation from others; separation in order to start anew; potential new perspectives in relationships; drastic measures toward self-protection; focusing attention on one's own goals; making startling new plans for enhancing life quality. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey - any, all, or none may apply.)

Relationships, Partnerships, and/or Alliances may be what's culminating now and Full Moons always highlight them. But it doesn't mean they will be permanently broken even though a point of widest extension has been reached for those affected by the degrees of this Full Moon (plus, Moon conjoins Fixed Star, Vindemiatrix: 'loss of partner'.)

In the US 'Sibly' chart, the Full Moon falls in 10th house of Public Status and Career - the wider world. And transiting Saturn is again dancing across the US natal Midheaven 00Lib53, a time when individuals or entities tend to be recognized for past work and actions which usually entail more responsibilities - and public accountability - as one's past actions are open to plenty of public scrutiny.

Well, with Sun (leader) and Moon (the people) both squaring off with Mr. Underworld, Pluto, the anciente regime may not be too happy with us at the moment...primarily we represent blockages and obstacles strewn along their path to total control. And since he's the wealthiest of the wealthy actors in the planetary panoply, we may expect the obsessive string-pulling of secret hand Pluto to continue as his agenda's claws close in on the world's collective trachea.

So have I ever told you my personal opinion on who ultimately is described by Pluto in mundane charts? If not, I am remiss.

After blogging since 2005 on political and social issues, my experience is not extensive and perhaps not the least bit insightful, but from Astrology studies and other readings, I think Mr. Hades signifies a continuing network of those who have orchestrated world events (riots, revolutions, market bubbles, banking system collapses, assassinations, and bill signings) for centuries based on their self-imagined exaltation as carriers of the royal Merovingian bloodline. If I seem to be implicating the Vatican, Pope, and the Jesuits in the NWO agenda, so be it.

Toss the saboteurs into a boiling cauldron with other Illuminati-ists and the Rosicrucians and you've got quite a stinky brew of win-at-any-cost monsters of the deep reveling in their 'special' DNA that supposedly marks their lineage passed down from Lucifer. But to me, no matter which Satan worshiper slept with whom through the centuries, it's a ludicrous theory that 'Jesus Christ fathered a child' during His time on planet Earth, and I scoff at the theory's seeming undermining (as if!) of the Universal Godhead. Such a daft theory gains no hoofage around here so move along, nothing to see, find another place to peddle your Jesuit madness and bloodline bamboozlings.

And then, if you were around in the 1980s and early 90s, you may remember that George H. W. Bush was an admitted friend and associate of Anton Lavey (Levay, Lavay, etc), founder of the Church of Satan in America - years ago, I heard Bush described in such terms with my own ears. Yet Bush Sr's sex scandals while in the White House were quite successfully hushed up. So Thanks, Press, for another example of your dropping the ball when it comes to the common good of the American people. For all I know, most of you are coven members, too. (Though some might cite you as members of the Trilateral Commission and say, same thing!)

Pedophile Vatican with a Shaky Pope on Top

Of late, and for tonight's Full Moon, Pluto (which can also signify The Pope) rises with Altair, the Eagle. In the US we're accustomed to thinking of the Eagle as being a peculiarly American symbol. After all, tonight's Full Moon chart has an Ascendant (in DC, edt) of 15Sco22, known as the Eagle Point, the mid-degree of Scorpio, with the Oxen Point '15Tau' upon Descendant.

For me, this relates to the August 11, 1999 'Mother of All Eclipses' - aka, 'The King of Terror Eclipse of the Century' - but it's beyond the scope of this article. And yet a mention must be made for 1999's Mars 16Sco51 is rising tonight along with a few of 1999's midpoints: Sun/Uranus, Moon/Uranus, Venus/Neptune (Ven/Nep is a significator of the Vatican), and Neptune/ASC. 1999 Solar Eclipse's Saturn was posited at 16Tau53 placing the 'hard work/hardship' opposition of Mars and Saturn in 1999 across the ASC-DESC axis for this evening's Full Moon.

This opposition of Mars/Saturn formed two points in the rigid Fixed Grand Cross pattern of energies which is the hallmark of the difficulties from the August 1999 Eclipse with which the world greeted the New Millennium. No, I don't believe the sensitivity of the degrees of this particular Eclipse will be fading any time soon and thus they remain ripe for activation from transits and progressions (Sun/Moon 18Leo21 - tr Venus triggered this Eclipse degree by conjunction on 9/11/01.)

Yes, others used 'the Eagle' pre-1776 (and our Founding Fathers were surely aware of prior uses of the bird as symbol and of its cousin, the Phoenix) so it represents several entities through the centuries. Prime among them is the Roman Empire, that fascist melding of Church and State we call 'Vatican City' or 'the Vatican' - now under fire, along with a complicit Pope Benedict, for priestly pedophile activities and the previous hush-hush status of their crimes against children which existed, or exists, within Vatican hierarchy and below.

As you know, the constellation Altair the Eagle is one of the Stymphalian Birds along with Cygnus the Swan and Lyra the Vulture - birds of a feather! Altair now gives Pluto boldness, forthright actions, and strength each morning (as if saboteur and thief Pluto needs more ruthless brashness. However, 'he' can certainly use the current Altair-rising-with-Pluto for timing his subversive activities.)

Now. If you've read thus far, congratulations, I heartily salute you!

And if you can still enjoy and marvel in the moonbeams of tonight's lovely Full Moon after reading my mundane grousings, please do so, in a location of your choice. Because Luna has a lovely Sabian Symbol for this evening's celestial show and I wish you and yours just this sort of experience:

'10 Libra' = "Having Passed Safely Through Narrow Rapids, a Canoe Reaches Calm Waters"...Keynote: The self-control and poise necessary to reach a steady state of inner stability.

The inner 'revelation' which brought about dramatic confrontations can now be meditated upon as it is reflected in the calm waters of the mind.

Keyword: RELIEF. (Source: An Astrological Mandala, Rudhyar.)

Hmm! Reminds me of the 6 of Swords card in The Enchanted Tarot deck I use (by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber): "PASSAGE" indicating a time of transition that brings new vistas and fresh solutions to old problems - and perhaps preparing us for some 'breakthrough' transitions of Uranus-to-Aries-Point which will soon be followed by Jupiter meeting Uranus at the Aries Point of World Manifestation...and it's all happenin' conjunct US natal IC 00Ari53.

Earth Hour tonight! And SAG, not Sagittarius

Tonight @ 8:30 pm edt is the annual Earth Hour so make your candling plans accordingly and chalk one up for global climate change. Check out the Earth Hour website for more information.

Meanwhile, just when I think my list of frets about this changing world is as long as it can reasonably get, along comes What in the World Are They Spraying? and I'm up in the air over something else again: SAG.

You know how the New World Order types (the ones wanting to impose global chaos so we'll accept any serf system they have in mind - for serfs who are still around) bombard us with 'satisfy your senses' messages and enticements in the media?

A society of folk who careen from one satisfaction to another is a society that notices only what is right in front of its nose, when all the while a variety of events and results are happening just outside their the fields of vision. Things that would alarm if noticed.

In that spirit, I recommend that you to read the above article concerning out-of-sight-out-of-mind SAG. And remember to Look Up and don't accept what you see as someone else's prerogative over your and your descendants' very existences - for those are what plutocratic string-pullers have placed on the line.


One of my favorite resources for information or news about the global eco-system is Living On Earth. Fixing Earth's climate is a favored topic there and today on the radio program they're featuring chef Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and interviewing him. Now I don't know if you've been watching the TV show where the British Mr. Oliver goes into US schools and turns their menus into decent grub, but I have. And I appreciate it.

It just began airing so you can catch up if you've missed it.

Yet no eye opener is needed here about processed 'foods' but those busy satisfying their cravings for foods laced with mace, sugar, salt, and who-knows-what-else are in process of having their taste buds re-educated by Mr. Oliver! Of course, the schools' budgets are not up to the challenge so I'm not sure where the show is going with Oliver's Food Revolution unless towns he visits decide to make important changes after he moseys into the sunset and the camera lights go down.

But I do hope the spotlight helps. Feeding our school kids nourishing chow would go along way toward scholastic achievement along with the many health benefits this would bestow...too numerous to list.

One of the craziest days my ears ever perked up over concerning Politics was the day the media began reporting that President Ronald Reagan's new adjustment in balancing America's school menus was that ketchup is a vegetable. How's that for Orwellian?

Or, as I adore saying: I knew it was you, Reagan.

George Washington: hero or traitor to his country?

While searching for something else entirely I have come across an interesting page concerning the Military Rule of George Washington and how our government was set up in secret with Freemason George Washington being nominated president of the Constitutional Convention, and later serving as our official first president.

(President Washington took the oath of office on April 30, 1789 with a YOD pattern in effect: Saturn/Mc = Neptune: a lack of clarity. Precise time of the 'oath heard round the world' is from historical record; click or tap the link to view the chart.)

So was George a hero or a traitor? You decide, for the halo round his head has been blinding me for decades and I firmly believe that placing any mortal human being upon such a high pedestal is always off by a mile from the truth!

On June 19, 1787, delegates voted to create a new form of national government which they separated into the three branches we ostensibly retain today. The establishment of a centralized government had to be kept secret, for others were opposed to setting up a system so similar to the British system we had just overthrown! A "storm of controversy" accompanied the public announcement of the US Constitution as copies were passed around on September 19, 1787 - a reworking of the Articles of Confederation was what the public had expected, but...quelle surprise!

(And perhaps the secrecy was important for guarding Freemasonry rituals which probably attended the proceedings. Make no mistake: this is a Freemason Nation! That certain 'founding fathers' injected Rosicrucianism and Illuminati-ism into our country's governmental establishment is factual but beyond the scope of this brief post.)

Back in the day, it was James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay leading 'the Federalists' with the anti-Federalists of Massachusetts, led by Samuel Adams and John Hancock, favoring de-centralization. (Thomas Jefferson was ambassador to France at the time so he had no say that I know of, other than to favor an agrarian society which the anti-Federalists favored. His colleagues must have known his views.)

And of course, pertinent for today's economic issues, it was the Federalists who 'won' on the Constitution and brought an over-arching, money-minting, NWO-inspired central banking system (a la Britain) to America in spite of much opposition. See how we suffer now as foreign debtors determine many of America's decisions and hold too much sway in our destiny.

The term "sold out" hardly describes what subsequent secret-society types on Capitol Hill have wrought through the decades, and the iceberg's tip of one-world-government now peeks out more and more brazenly in the New Millennium.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Sun Aries-Moon Scorpio

Happy Birthday to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who was born into a political family in Baltimore, Maryland, on March 26, 1940, debuting as the youngest of 6 children.

On March 26, 1940, the Moon remained in Scorpio for the 24-hour period so without knowing the Speaker's birth time, we may confidently surmise a Fire-Water Sun Aries/Moon Scorpio personality blend. And as you know, Fire and Water equal steam.

The Sun Ari/Moon Sco blend is one of personal integrity, open-mindedness, a biting wittiness, and deep passions. This combo is highly motivated, forceful and powerful, self-dramatizing, and has much charisma. Drive, energy, and tenacity are evident as a person with this natal combo finds direct or indirect ways of achieving goals.

There can be an upfront impatient, naive, trusting approach to the world yet backed underneath with suspicion and doubt. Slow-burning determination melds with a go-for-it gusto - for if they don't meld, relationships fall apart amid bitter conflicts.

With its act together, a person with this combo becomes an unstoppable, co-operative leader determined to 'set the world to rights' while leaving its mark. Some people see this blend as brash and pushy yet none can doubt the strong commitment to aims along the chosen path. Yet Sun Ari/Moon Sco does care about others' good opinions because it longs for approval and applause from others. But when plans are blocked, bitterness can set in.

A secret weapon is self-belief which bestows a formidable will to achieve and a natural gift for strategy for this is a combo of a natural leader. And yet Nancy Pelosi wants to be thought well of as she puts causes ahead of herself. This blend gives a talent for psychological insight and is supported by her natal Sun (5 - 7 Aries) conjunct asteroid Psyche. (A prominent Psyche may give her psychic abilities, too.)

The tendency to take a real disliking to certain people may result in an arrogant, rude, and bloody-minded approach which opponents have certainly noticed before now. A belief in the worth of the individual is a strength along with a capacity for pushing through ideas and plans against all obstacles and this may cause others to see Speaker Pelosi as overbearing and ruthless, for she can be.

(Of course, Independent me says 'good' to the last part because at least she isn't a Republican.)

Images for Integration: Charlie Chaplin saves a maiden in distress...A passionate woman sells herself for her cause...The Godfather films. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Does she make offers her opponents and colleagues can't refuse?

The Sun Aries/Moon Scorpio blend is shared natally by Charlie Chaplin (obviously), Warren Beatty, Julie Christie, Anita Bryant (!), Francis Ford Coppola (hence The Godfather films), Thornton Wilder, David Frost, Henry James, Leslie Howard ('Ashley' in Gone with the Wind), Hayley Mills (a 60s fave of mine), Arturo Toscanini, Dudley Moore, and Wilhelm Rontgen (discoverer of x-rays.)

Well, Nancy Pelosi held a Reconciliation Bill Enrollment Ceremony which she signed at 10:16 am edt this morning (C-SPAN) so it now goes to the President to bolster his Health Insurance Reform law. And now you know a little more about our determined Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi of Baltimore, Maryland.

Ron Paul on video: executive orders unconstitutional

You and I already know that 'executive orders' are unconstitutional and I lost count of how many of them George Bush signed. President Obama signed one yesterday to make his Health Insurance Reform law more acceptable to those who object to federal funding for abortions. It's the fancy way he got enough votes to pass the law, as you know.

Well, here's Rep. Ron Paul discussing the unconstitutionality of 'executive orders' signed by presidents to bypass Congress.

Congressman Paul was born August 20, 1935 and you may wish to read a brief analysis of the birth chart of this Leo Sun individual here.

Why does he keep airing out things that other congress members don't wish to talk about? Perhaps it's his stubborn, value-preserving Taurus Moon!

Maoists terrorizing India

Are you aware that Maoists are terrorizing parts of India? Well, I wasn't and am saddened to hear of it.

In fact, I have missed the ball on the Naxalites all together, lucky you're there to guard my back on the throw. Turns out, the Maoist political party was founded on September 21, 2004. It was in mid-August 2004 that Pluto and Chiron were parallel for two days and of course, Pluto/Chiron is the epitome of disenfranchisements of all kinds with oppression tossed in to make certain those victimized go down and stay down.

(Parallels may be used as timing devices in Astrology and are similar in nature to a strong conjunction.)

You will notice, if you click on the Maoist info link, that 'Sept 21, 1967' falls under the spell of the major Great Conjunction which defined the energies of the 1960s: Uranus conjunct Pluto.

Disruptor Uranus met saboteur Pluto 3 times in the mid-60s:

1. Oct 9, 1965 @17Vir10
2. April 4, 1966 @16Vir28
3. June 30, 1966 @16Vir06

My point is that astrologers tend to look at the beginning of planetary cycles to see where in that cycle the same planets are on a particular date. Similar themes, issues, and concerns will come to the surface especially during 'quarters' times...the waxing squares (90 degrees, crisis in action phase), the opposition (180 degrees: stand-off, culmination, and/or partnership), and the waning square (also 90 degr, crisis in consciousness phase.)

The long-term Cardinal T-Square pattern (Spring 2010 - 2014/15) contains within it the ongoing Saturn-Uranus cycle now at opposition phase off and on, the Saturn-Pluto cycle, now at waning square phase (Libra to Cap), and the Uranus-Pluto cycle, now approaching exact square (partile) with one another in this their dance of shockingly deep energies. As Uranus screeches across the Aries Point from sedate, surreptitious Pisces, 'scientific breakthroughs' will be announced or discovered (as noted on this blog previously as, Uranus = AP.)

Aries to Capricorn: hard work, frustrations, and delays? (Mars-Saturn)

Once again the Saturn-Uranus puzzle of old vs new supports the prominence of the current Uranus-Pluto square - it is the most prominent of the titanic battles going on over our noggins for it is the rarest of those now in play. Aries, the first sign of Spring, the pioneering adventurer discovering and claiming new vistas -vs- Capricorn, the manager, so set in his ways and fond of tradition, status quo, and gilt-edged securities.

So we are now called upon the deal with and hopefully successfully manage the energies of the crisis in consciousness phase of the electrifying, stupefying Uranus-Pluto Conjunction of the 1960s with all the issues, themes, and record albums of the day. Oh, and the protests, demonstrations, and riots from those days, too.

This is well the time to get questions of equality and freedom right!

President signs Health Insurance Reform Bill w/ Neptune to US Moon: 3.23.10

22 Signing Pens, 2 per letter.

While I was typing the following post, President Obama signed into law his Health Insurance Reform legislation at 11:55 am edt, White House, with South Node 17Can59 in 1st house which indicates the historical nature of the signing event. However, SN rising can indicate difficulties keeping the bill anchored into being for SN has a separative, Saturnian effect.

And yet, Saturn adores laws and regulations! US natal Venus (valuable commodities) is rising with our natal Jupiter in tow.

ASC '3Can' = "A Man All Bundled Up in Fur Leading a Shaggy Reindeer."

Mercury, ruler of signings, bills, agreements, trade and commerce is nearing Midheaven @ 12Aries04...'13Ari' = "A Bomb Which Failed to Explode Is Safely Concealed." Hmm. Might this describe something hidden in the bill that we're not going to like, or to a rescue of our tottering health care system? Or perhaps both?

The ongoing T-Square between Sun/Saturn and apex Pluto is morphed into a Grand Cross in time for the bill signing ceremony: Moon, Sun, Saturn, and Pluto...dynamic efforts amount to high achievements!

At 11:55 am edt, a 1st house Moon '6Can' conjoins US natal Jupiter indicating much publicity for the event - and happy people across the land having a reigning need fulfilled (except in smokey GOP dens of his opponents and those citizens emotionally activated by undermining rhetoric against a Dem President.) Well, I for one hope the reforms aid someone besides special interests and old manipulative string-puller, Pluto.

Perfecting during the glad-handing and pen-sharing that took place in the minutes after the bill was signed is a midpoint picture that includes the Sun (leader):

Sun/Uranus = MC (The Goal): reformers, inventors, technicians; restless people with far-reaching plans; experiencing the impact of sudden events; major events in support of big plans (NWO? DNA collection for all?); hopeful triumph for the ego.

In his midpoints book, Michael Munkasey says that Sun/Uranus energies were in effect at the time the first-ever Medicaid patient applied to the program! #

My original post begins here with no edits because I gotta motor into the city:

Ever since Health Insurance Reform was passed (and sent on to the Senate March 21, 2010) it's been bothering me that this week's entire political theater production on Capitol Hill has been performed with transiting Neptune sitting directly upon America's natal Moon (we-the-people; 27AQ10.) Confusions, deceptions (including self-deception), fraud, and propaganda have been coming upon us for some time given Neptune's slow-mo movements but now that the gaseous giant is here, we get Health Insurance Reform, and possibly financial reform, too.

Since the numbers of health care workers needed are not available to attend to the new 'millions' who will soon have insurance, and since the bill's cost savings are more than a little squirrelly, I'm feeling more than a little like we've been had by the 'shell game' the GOP has accused the Obama administration of using for this giant legislation. Of course, around this blog, it takes one shell gamer to know one, so the Republicans obviously know whereof they gamingly speak.

The Neptune to natal Moon transit has been detailed here previously but in case you, lone reader, have landed here for the first time, let's consider it again.

First, a Neptune transit has ab orb of influence and, as I said, it's been coming on a while and will be in effect a while longer. The transit includes such things as a sense of rootlessness, losing homes to foreclosure, dissolving of commitments (and of contracts made by and for the people) - all in all, an unstable period for everything that relates to the Moon, the body which signifies the people in a national chart. Plus, Neptune relates to mass media, with various toutings being brought to us by...Neptune, the illusionist.

Stability for this legislation will have to be brought by other factors for Neptune-to-n-Moon isn't good anchorage for staying power. And we know that repeal arguments are being rehearsed as I type so we may never hear the end of it. Great. Mr. Obama's opponents will do what they can to undermine the bill's effectiveness, too, no matter what it costs the American people for the GOP to score political points while clawing their way into office.

Yes, multiple mysteries abound with Neptune to US n Moon, posited in our n 3rd house of Communications, Neighborhoods, Grade Schools, Siblings, and the Lower Mind; third house also relates to health through the mind-body connection so with Tinkerbell Neptune's magic wand touching us, perhaps we have health insurance if we simply believe we do - or, with Neptune's more rare dreams-can-come-true effect, perhaps this legislation will catalyze improvements in our health care system which are sorely needed. Neptune might, but the motivations of the people involved are a quite a different question.

And yet it's hard to pinpoint what one really wants with Neptune sitting all over one's Moon, for the Moon rules our reigning needs; ours is in Aquarius, a transpersonal sign of brotherhood. Giving all Americans access to better health care (at the point when it's needed, not after the disease-ridden horses have escaped the barn and it's too late to be saved - 'saved' is a Neptunian word, as is 'escaped') - access for all Americans is one of the touts of this legislation from the Obama administration (the touters.) Perhaps 32 million Americans will soon agree.

However, Neptune to natal Moon is a time when conditions are difficult if not impossible to diagnose including physical complaints, or, the wrong diagnosis may be given. Hopefully, this does not describe the Health Insurance Reform legislation that's about to become the law of the land while curing what ails us. (It did become law at 11:55 am edt, see above Update.)

But will the reforms deliver a wrong diagnosis?

Without addressing health care costs rising into the stratosphere, the 'savings' of this bill over time may not help matters much on that score, yet I hope the bill's magical effects are more real than they seem at present especially since there's another dreamy Neptunian thing that tends to accompany a Neptune to n Moon transit: loss through theft and/or carelessness.

One major theft we know of already: the public option has been stolen from the bill! And my concern about nationwide DNA collection may be considered theft if a patient is unaware of it. (After your DNA is snagged, it belongs to them, not you.)

That Neptune rules drugs, legal and otherwise, isn't comforting either unless the transit brings us medical marijuana for those who need an appetite boost, mood lift, and pain relief for their serious conditions. That would be a positive outcome, imo, although you may disagree. My feeling is that if a person is dying or suffering grievously, what business is it of mine - or the government's - to cruelly dictate what he may take to lessen his misery.

Well, here's an article on the subject of the health insurance reform bill. It asserts that the reform is from the top down rather than from the 'bottom up' as we've heard from the Obama administration (like Neptune's wand from on-high: presto change-o, you're covered! But with what?)

Yes, the bill's reforms have been fashioned by Washington think tanks behind the American people's backs...such a perfect description of veiling Neptune to US natal Moon...'tanks' being a watery Neptunian word.

Message from the President on Health Insurance Reform passage

Here's a copy of the message that turned up in my Inbox this morning with words of thanks from President Barack Obama. Actually, I didn't do that much, really...

"For the first time in our nation's history, Congress has passed comprehensive health care reform. America waited a hundred years and fought for decades to reach this moment. Tonight, thanks to you, we are finally here.

Consider the staggering scope of what you have just accomplished:

Because of you, every American will finally be guaranteed high quality, affordable health care coverage.

Every American will be covered under the toughest patient protections in history. Arbitrary premium hikes, insurance cancellations, and discrimination against pre-existing conditions will now be gone forever.

And we'll finally start reducing the cost of care -- creating millions of jobs, preventing families and businesses from plunging into bankruptcy, and removing over a trillion dollars of debt from the backs of our children.

But the victory that matters most tonight goes beyond the laws and far past the numbers.

It is the peace of mind enjoyed by every American, no longer one injury or illness away from catastrophe.

It is the workers and entrepreneurs who are now freed to pursue their slice of the American dream without fear of losing coverage or facing a crippling bill.

And it is the immeasurable joy of families in every part of this great nation, living happier, healthier lives together because they can finally receive the vital care they need.

This is what change looks like.

My gratitude tonight is profound. I am thankful for those in past generations whose heroic efforts brought this great goal within reach for our times. I am thankful for the members of Congress whose months of effort and brave votes made it possible to take this final step. But most of all, I am thankful for you.

This day is not the end of this journey. Much hard work remains, and we have a solemn responsibility to do it right. But we can face that work together with the confidence of those who have moved mountains.

Our journey began three years ago, driven by a shared belief that fundamental change is indeed still possible. We have worked hard together every day since to deliver on that belief.

We have shared moments of tremendous hope, and we've faced setbacks and doubt. We have all been forced to ask if our politics had simply become too polarized and too short-sighted to meet the pressing challenges of our time. This struggle became a test of whether the American people could still rally together when the cause was right -- and actually create the change we believe in.

Tonight, thanks to your mighty efforts, the answer is indisputable: Yes we can.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama"


Yet is the President's legislative victory last evening clearly an historic moment?

Health Reform passing, Scorpio Rising March 21, 2010

So comprehensive health insurance reform passed Sunday night (Ds garnered 216 votes @ 11:37 pm edt) and President Obama spoke from the East Room (stuff you've heard before) from 11:46 pm edt to 11:55 pm est.

One bill goes on to the Senate for more passage, and the other lands on the President's desk for signing later in the week, last I heard. An executive order is meant to kibosh federal abortion funding that may or may not be lurking.

This evening (though it's now Monday 2:25 am edt) the Rising sign/degree over the Capitol Building at 11:37 pm edt March 21, 2010, when the vote tally passed 216 was @ 23Sco24 with Fixed Star Agena rising; Hour of Mercury 8Ari58 (votes! bills! In 5th house of Gambling and Risk-Taking); Rx Pallas (strategy; wisdom) rises in Scorpio, too, and Scorpio is the sign of surgeries, recuperation, and regeneration. And of course, snakes are the healing element symbolized on the Caduceus, associated with Mercury - and tonight the Sun conjoined Hermes, the magician and alchemist!

At Midheaven (The Goal) 4Vir46, the nation's Secondary Progressed Sun is in full view; chart-ruler Mars is tangled with Jupiter in an applying sesqui-square, an 'interlaced square' of dynamic energy. Yet there is good news for warrior Mars: he's applying to a helpful sextile with old man Saturn who now lowers his bony bones once again upon US natal MC (Sibly 00Lib53.) Accountability and responsibility for all the world to see. Wonder what the passage of this reform might do to world markets?

The Cardinal T-Square awaits Uranus to leave nebulous Pisces and reach Aries; until then, Sun-Saturn-Pluto will have to do for plutonian obstacles. If mandatory vaccinations and any kind of surreptitious DNA collection are results of this legislation with its hidden provisions snugged within, I'm going to be really annoyed. If the financial discrepancies in the final bill continue to be questioned, the bill's opponents may just be correct to doubt the legislation's funding and supposed 'cost-savings' which are projected so far into the future and are too much based on possibilities as to feel like a mighty big leap into what could be a prickly Briar Patch.

Moon 14Gem59 in 7th house of Partnerships is out-of-bounds indicating an insecure populace; even many of us who think we might end up with health reform legislation that benefits someone besides those of the wealthy class are wondering just what surprise is tucked inside its dewy pages. Moon '15Gem' = "Two Dutch Children Talking" and I'm quite certain they are.

Venus 18Ari10 conjuncts asteroid, Pandora, who tends to expand circumstances with her 'unintended consequences' rippling out into the environment...Venus, accustomed to dealing with valuable things, is excitably gambling in the 5th house.

Sun Aries/Moon Gemini is a live-wire Fire-Air blend which has three interesting Images for Integration: 'A fencing master carries off the prize...A racing driver plays the piano to relax...Hayden's Farewell Symphony.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

The zest and quick thinking of the Aries/Gemini combo are legendary along with great entrepreneurial skills, a good eye for opportunity (an oft-repeated word tonight by Speaker Pelosi and others), and a knack for keeping things bubbling along.

Yet this blend is a starter and not much of a finisher, so other factors will need to be supplied to keep the Dems on track (Mars sextile Saturn? Sun trine Mars? Lots of talent and cooperation there.) Still, it is a blend of a 'great persuader' with a will to win and lots of courage to get the job done. The chart looks as if a lot of telephone calling went on and I believe that that would describe President Obama's role in recent days.

And 'influence of a woman' is all over the 11:37 pm edt chart as well which is no big surprise with a Democratic Speaker of the House (and other ladies) helping push the legislation through like...well, like a difficult birth.

Here are a few keywords for Agena from Anthony Louis' Horary Astrology(Agena has the nature of: VENUS, JUPITER; Mars, Mercury):

High status, honors, a good organizer; sarcasm, scandal, gossip, cleverness, and success with the masses.

All the versions of the Health Insurance Reform legislation have been watered down almost beyond recognition, but...there it is.

Astrology Day Blogathon March 19 - 21, 2010 and the Solar Eclipse of July 11, 2010

Here I sit wondering if you've dropped in yet to check out the 1st Annual International Astrology Day Blogathon March 19 - 21, 2010.

The Blogathon's Schedule of Articles leads with strong-arm Pluto taking over Friday March 19, Saturn managing his namesake day Saturday ( March 20) perfectly well and efficiently, and Uranus erking jerkily up to meet the Aries Point of Prominence, a World Point of Manifestation which can be a breakthrough position indicating most often a 'scientific breakthrough' of some kind which benefits or hinders large numbers of people, and now appearing just in time to light up Spring Equinox 2010.

Why, it's been about 84 years since revolutionary rebel Uranus, The Awakener and The Witness, streaked through this Mars-ruled area of the zodiac! The quirky, erratic Sky God of the planets can be associated with natural disasters, it must be added.

And after all, 2010 is a year of a Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus thus generously expanding the principles involved in the picture: transit Uranus = AP = scientific breakthrough/s of merit and/or significance. Jupiter/Uranus has a definite light-bulb-over-head vibe for brilliant insights to suddenly stun us with their ingeniousness. Air or space travel innovations may be on the menu and scientists' work on energy sources may be on the verge of a big publicity splash.

Now I know you'll keep in mind that July 11, 2010 brings along a Solar Eclipse conjunct a difficult degree in the zodiac (Tropical) @ 19 - 20 Cancer, a critical range traditionally; plus, Castor's reputation as a troublemaker precedes him.

Here's what Anthony Louis gives for Castor in his Horary Astrology Plain and Simple: 'sudden fame or loss; murder; mental illness; crippling of limbs'.

Brady adds 'an intellectual writer' and both stars of The Twins can be inspirational muses for writers and other artistic, creative enterprises.

Pluto's degree of Discovery is around 19 - 20 Cancer as well and you know what the atomic Mr. Underworld signifies - obsessive control of all factors and schedules involved with his endeavors. Pluto keeps himself aloof and is quite neurotically anti-societal, you know, if not a gangster.

Well, generally I'd say our globe is in line for a unifying event of some kind; plus, it feels to me as if there may be multiple events of note during 2010 into 2011.

These are the reasons I want you to have the Astrology Day Blogathon 2010's link for How-To-Deal articles and insights to encourage you to pause and think a while along new tracks while appreciating for a moment another person's perspective. For as the Tarot says, if you're fortunate enough to be able to pause and consider your options, do so.

Plus, eclipses in Cancer spotlight domestic issues such as land, real estate, homes, homeland, questions of and need for security, grains/other food crops, food supply and its transport concerns, food additives, food and poultry inspection, and nurturing sources including food banks and other charities.

Cancer has its primordial links with oceans, crustaceans, and with shrewd business practices and creative talents, too.

Unfortunately, Fixed Star Castor is usually a problem when and wherever it is activated or contacted. From our earthly vantage point upon our little blue sphere a contact with Castor seems to ramp up its expression on an archetypal level. It's a bit like in the film The Mummy - an ancient archetype comes to 'life' either within one's psyche, in muliple psyches, and perhaps upon the physical plane if all factors coincide and the will is there.

In mythology, Castor is brother to Pollux, of course, the dark-light Twin Stars of Gemini, and you can toss your mouse about 3 inches and find web-based info on them all over the interweb.

Then why not sashay yourself over to an original researcher on the subject of Fixed Stars and parans, Australian astrologer Bernadette Brady? You can hardly do better! Especially if Fixed Stars warm the very cockles of your astrologer's heart.

So, Brady's Predictive Astrology gives the July 11, 2010 Solar Eclipse as being in the 12 South Series and I shall remind you that 12S is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series during which America was founded, occurring prior to July 4, 1776. Don't you find it a helpful trait when using eclipses in your charts that a precise birth time isn't necessary with Fixed Star and paran work (such as that of Bernadette Brady) for one looks at the entire 24 hours of the day - your day, the day or night of your birth, you cute little dickens, you.

With star parans, a horoscope is divided into quarters so that a lifetime is described by quarterly markers for life's chronological phases, and the Fixed Star/s during our day of birth, if any, are linked to a particular planet (or planets) as they arose, culminated, set, and crossed the midnight point at the Base or Foundation Point of the chart, aka The Drain.

Thereby we are informed of the time period of our lives in which certain archetypes and myths (some of them inherited family myths) 'play out' and flavor our motivations and actions (either consciously or most often, unconsciously) and spark (Uranus!) and inform us so we may express their starry mythological energies (stories) in more positive ways than was done heretofore by our ancestors.

This living out archetypal energies, or as a rep for the transpersonal realm, is what I think of as the foundation of the 'past life' theories which abound in the world because this Saturnian astrologer 'sees' heredity in charts - cells and DNA, and not Marie Antoinette or her serving maid. (Addiction to cake is not conclusive evidence of 'past life' or incarnation. Nope.)

July 11, 2010 @ 3:40:17 pm edt Washington DC; ASC 16 Scorpio 05; MC 25 Leo 22 (it and its polar opposite 25 AQ 22, are degrees of Astrology, btw, as are the rest of Leo/AQ's degrees up to 30 Leo); eclipse perfects in the 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Big Business, Corporations, etc, in DC.)

12S: there are influences of 'principles and justified actions' to this Series with possible feelings of melancholy; yet there will be successful outcomes to long-term worries or illness; things may at first seem worse, then clear. (As I've wondered aloud here before: will a health insurance bill of some description and/or one for financial reform actually pass in the US Congress, a body that for decades has preferred to send US treasures overseas?)

Well, here is a brief list of 12S manifestations in the last century and looking forward:

1902, 1919, 1938, 1956, 1974, 1992, and July 11, 2010; the next manifestation will be in 2028.

Well, 12S is the PE of not just America, but of President Harry Truman, the Statue of Liberty (our big honkin' Illuminati monument to Venus Columba, the Dove), and it'a also the Series in which fell Richard Nixon's resignation (good riddance.)

The Fed will be raising interest rates: Peter Schiff video

Here's a 7-minute-17-second video concerning the Fed having to raise interest rates in spite of the recession. Sad to say, 'this is only the beginning' of economic woes is supported by astrological influences over the next few years. Sorry, guys. American supremacy is basically over. Guess we got too big for our britches - and you know that pride comes before a fall.

(Ex: US Secondary Progressed Full Moon Dec 24, 2008 - a natural cycle of being extended as far as we can reasonably go in the world; pullback necessary, but so far quite ignored) unless our 'team' can manage to wrest control of the New World Order helm from other vying governments as our 'team' is struggling to do.

But if so, the American people won't like that situation either, surfs as we'll be.

Mr. Schiff is probably correct, but it's the 'will have to raise interest rates' part I don't trust because I think the Fed and other entities are behind the engineered, long-planned financial collapse of 2008, aka 'done on purpose'...transiting Pluto now in opposition to US natal Venus, then opposing natal Jupiter and later on, Pluto opposing US natal Sun, the leader. Perhaps Britain will take back the keys to the US jalopy, the keys that Congress, the bankers, and industrialists have virtually handed over to China. Yet America may need Daddy to drive.

So if the Fed 'feels compelled' by circumstances to raise interest rates, which will further squeeze the little guy and further wipe out what once was a middle class, it's because it's part of the plan to collapse the world economy and build a new (crappy) one-world-government model based on totalitarian control and founded upon the ruins, the slimey lucifer-worshiping sots.

To again paraphrase FDR: 'Nothing in Politics happens by accident. If it happens you can be sure it was meant to be that way.'

How very true.

Remembering James Madison, March 16, 1751

March 16 is the birthdate of the Architect of the US Constitution James Madison so this is a belated birthday post in his honor.

Madison was born March 16, 1751 (NS) in Port Conway, Virginia @ 11:59 pm (RR: B) and you may view his natal chart here though I published it in 2006 before I began scribbling notes all over charts (which may seem an improvement to you but the chart looks rather forlorn and empty to me.)

Even so, you'll see his Sagittarian Ascendant with Pluto Rx rising, his Sun in Pisces/Moon in Scorpio (Water-Water, an intuitive and emotional fellow), and his sparkling mental brilliance mirrored in a Mercury/Uranus conjunction in Aquarius.

The Sun Pisc/Moon Scorpio blend is shared natally by author John Steinbeck who could not possibly have been thinking of America's current reforms now in grand struggles to be born when he wrote, "It is the nature of man as he grows protest against change, particularly change for the better."

Saturn and North Node in Sag are rising in 1st and speak of Madison's taking on obligations easily, having a sense of pride, an air of authority, and of honoring long-standing ties to old friends. Serious meetings are part of Saturn/NN as well and he certainly enjoined his share of those.

A focused-energy Mars in Capricorn, sign of law, government, and business is there, too, with Jupiter in Taurus giving him a fortunate-for-endeavors Mars/Jupiter trine, so check out President Madison, if you wish.

Nowadays, most Americans remember the Constitution fondly, shredded and tattered as it's become in recent decades with a big boost given to its undermining by eight years of Bush-Cheney, featuring the 'Patriot' Act, undeclared and illegal war, and, prior and subsequent to all that, a private central bank, unfondly known as the Fed, printing and minting currency and coins it has no constitutional right to print or distribute.

And that's only the short list of attacks upon our cherished-by-the-people Constitution, written to protect us from tyrants - and thus precisely one of the documents that certain entities are determined to destroy.

You'll note that Senator Chris Dodd's financial 'reform' bill announced on Monday is said to give more power to the Fed when more power to the Constitution is what we need. And that would make the Fed moot or illegal at best.

James Madison is also known for being the first US President to actually live in the White House; he moved in on November 1, 1800. No, it wasn't ideal but Dolly made do and livened up Washington considerably while making it do.

Now here is a SO'W post from 2007 with a few words from the man himself, including his last words to the American people. It's entitled James Madison on tyranny so you know right away that we need to hear from the birthday boy in 2010 in spite of his well-advanced age.

So thank you, Mr. Madison, for all your work on behalf of America's founding, and I'm very sorry that usurpers have royally screwed things up so badly. I only wish more Americans had paid much closer attention to the termites in the woodwork a lot sooner than 2010.

Spring Equinox 2010 and the Astrology of it

This Saturday's Spring Equinox 2010 has a Sun Aries/Moon Taurus blend which you may wish to consider. Plus, the article points you back here to a Stars Over Washington post containing an image of the horoscope of the precise moment the Sun 'reaches' 00Aries00, the Aries Point, in Washington DC, on March 20, 2010.

As you know, the AP is one of the four Cardinal points of the zodiac and all are places where important events tend to manifest. (Ex: the June 2001 Solar Eclipse @ 00Cancer presaged the attacks of 9/11/01.) So you may wish to go directly to the chart image of Spring Equinox 2010 where you'll spy T-squares with Pluto as apex (focal) planet. In the chart Mercury and Sun are 'stand-ins' for Uranus which soon will reach the AP, thereby giving the world this difficult midpoint picture:

Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: tremendous fear of loss; upheaval to protect assets; rebellion.

But as for Spring EQ 2010, there are three rather nasty midpoint pics formed which point directly to secret manipulator and underworld god, Pluto, as catalyst:

Sun/Saturn = Pluto: threat of loss in relationships or health; pressure to change one's entire value system; overwhelming rigidity and inflexibility; a very disciplined person who wants and attracts power; the will to retaliate against others for slights; elimination of pessimism and despair (a good one! jc);

Mercury/Saturn = Pluto: serious incidents provoke questioning of official communications; compulsion to assure that info is correct; serious communication breakdowns end business associations; feeling wiped out and resourceless; contemplating loss; grappling with special problems; brooding over one's destiny which is determined by one's plans.

Saturn/MC = Pluto: a fateful, grand struggle or a struggle ordained by destiny; attaining success only under great difficulty; great demands; fear of loss; a need to be in control at all times (Pluto! jc); great changes in life's conditions; added willpower to accomplish goals; a strong repression of your work or abilities by others. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey; any, all, or none may apply but let's hope not.)

Whew! Reading these pictures in a clump makes me want to rush and counter them by reading the helpful articles available this weekend during Astrology Day Blogathon 2010, but it doesn't go Live until Friday, March 19! (March 19 - 21, 2010.)

Yet at this very moment, you may go ahead and pre-view the Blogathon's Cosmic Art Gallery with one simple click. Plus, keep it handy for you'll find links there to the Blogathon's main articles concerning how to cope with Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto as their energies square off against one another and make this decidedly not the easiest Spring season the world has ever seen.

Lehman Brothers in the news March 2010

Update March 15, 2010: here's another article by Mike Whitney with more outrageous details about Lehman Brothers and financial collapse 2008 - or 2007, if you prefer.

And NPR is now airing an interview with Michael Lewis, author of the new book The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine, and from what he's saying, Goldman-Sachs comes out smelling even stinkier than I had previously thought.

Well, pee-yewww on them all. But what honesty can anyone expect from a NYSE that was founded during a financially illusionary Jupiter/Neptune conjunction?

And by the way: today's announcement of the long-awaited financial 'reform' bill by Senator Chris Dodd today reveals that the bill intends to grant the Fed more power, not less! Well, it isn't as if I expected much improvement out of the Senator from the credit card state.

Did you?

Original post begins here:

With Lehman Brothers in the news again I searched SO'W for a previous article from September 2008 concerning the Lehman Brothers crisis - of 1984, that watershed year of infamy.

From what I've heard recently on NPR, the crisis of 1984 taught the firm nothing worth passing down to the modern CEOs of a company that knew what it was practicing was fraudulent but they did it anyway.

At some point, the Brothers must have contracted a bad case of Enronitis and passed that down instead, one supposes.

You'll also find in the above-linked article a certain list of Who Really Rules the World...good to know in case you need a bailout or a credit line extension, right?

New Moon 25Pisc10 March 15, 2010

The New Moon 25Pisc10 on Monday, March 15, 2010 occurs @ 5:01:02 pm edt at the White House so I thought perhaps a few astro-beans might be freely spilled on the subject as a new cycle of activity begins.

In Washington DC, the New Moon will occur in the 8th house of High Finances, Credit, Insurance, Debt, Transformation, etc. The 8th house, of course, is part of the 2/8 Money/Valuations axis; 8th cusp 22Pisc33 may not indicate a lot of clarity in financial matters especially considering the 3rd (final) Great Conjunction in December 2009 of the speculator pair of planets, Jupiter and Neptune, ruler and co-uler of the Piscean New Moon.

The New Moon's ruler, Jupiter 13Pisc27 is in 8th house, with Neptune 27AQ13 (6th house) left behind to splay messily over America's natal Moon 27AQ10 (US Sibly chart, 5:10 pm LMT) - quite a perfect picture of job (6th h) loss (Neptune) and lies and confusion (Neptune) about health (6th h; Moon.) And Chiron, associated with unhealable wounds/knowing how to wound, is also in 6th house of the New Moon chart.

Since I've blogged previously on the Neptune-to-n-Moon transit I won't repeat it all here other than to say that our ongoing senses of rootlessness, homelessness, and being deceived continue their difficulties upon the folks who can manage them the least. (Thanks, Washington, corporations, lobbyists, and the Fed - for nuthin'.)

Mass media (Neptune) is busy pulling her veil over the eyes of the people (Moon), too, perhaps in relation to a specific matter or matters with this Neptunian transit now exact. Yes, I realize they always do, but the timing is important so watch out for a special story to appear on the public radar - perhaps one that's difficult to believe (because it's untrue or based on flimsy evidence.)

Of course, flimsy statistics are possible as well with 'numbers' being a constant tool for manipulating public opinion and the 'health' of the market. Yet, sensing we're being lied to and scammed, US consumer confidence may reach a new low soon with Neptune-to-Moon since inflationary Neptune brings slowly dissolving conditions of loss along with massive deceptions and frauds.

Plus, a mystery (Neptune) from our nation's past (Moon) may surface and surprise us either positively or negatively so we'll see if anything newly discovered turns up concerning our history or past events. Perhaps some media hype (Neptune) may be uncovered for what it really is - a crock of NWO promotion.

Yet, Mercury 26Pisc26 conjoins disruptive rebel Uranus 26:29 in 8th house and both are close enough to the New Moon to usurp its rulership. When Mercury/Uranus energies are fused we get possible communications breakthroughs, modernization of transportations networks or policies, business groups forming to initiate policies, and/or labor coalitions or unions at work. And if goals are not clearly defined we may see riots and rebellion based on false assumptions, reforms that cause upsets in transportation systems, and/or a use of propaganda during emergencies. (Munkasey.)

At the moment of the New Moon's perfection on Monday, the ASC degree in DC is 29Leo08 which brings up one of the Royal Stars of Persia, Regulus, in the tip of the Leo's tail. The keywords for Regulus: success if revenge is avoided, so the caution with Regulus is not to take revenge. The other Royal Stars have cautions, too, which, if heeded, result in the promised success.

Also rising is asteroid Sisyphus, keywords: to be determined to achieve or succeed. Sounds like someone at the White House is understandably antsy to get some legislation passed, yes? And at IC 23Sco57, the Foundation of the chart, lies asteroid Pallas 23Sco02 Rx. Pallas = strategy, wisdom, defense of the city state.

With Pallas Rx, it may be that strategic plans are in review, as well they should be considering the hard slog this administration has had since Inauguration 2009's Rx Mercury (plans, announcements, contracts, agreements, messages, re-taken oaths, etc - plans possibly aborted, hence the GOP call for 'back to the drawing board') and its void-of-course Moon which showed that things would not be working out as planned, if at all. VOC Moons may also describe conditions where plans or events currently in play will not be interfered with or diverted - nothing is of any help as to how things turn out for it's too late. (Ex: 9/11's Moon @ a degree of Bankruptcy '28Gemini.' Bankrupting the people is working well for the global power elites so far. And 'it's too late' describes the condition of the US financial system in 2001 that most economists weren't being honest about. Perhaps someone saw waging expensive wars as an answer to financial shakiness. It wouldn't be the first time.)

The New Moon's North Node (NN) 18Cap48 is pointing toward asteroid Cupido, keywords: corporations, The Family, crime syndicates (and Art!) and they're @ the *NWO degree '18Cap' = "The Union Jack"...SUPERVISION...

positive expression: the self's ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches (the mark of the NWO beast? Microchips for human beings, anyone?);

negative/unconscious/shadow side: smug or strong-armed paternalism. (MEJ.)

And NN in Cap implicates Saturn in 2nd house - with President Obama's natal Mars on 2nd cusp 22Vir33 along with US natal Neptune 22Vir25, the signature of Mr. Obama's 'rock star status'...but indicating that the public seldom if ever sees his actions (Mars) in a clear light due to Neptune's interference (media and other deceptive actors including Obama's team of spinners.)

Well, with tr Saturn 1Lib46 Rx in 2nd house of the New Moon chart, and considering the Old Man's continuing visit to the White House's natal Uranus 00Lib01 (at US natal MC in the Sibly chart) we may wish to consider how Saturn-to-n-Uranus may affect the White House under this restrictive transit. It's a time when circumstances conspire to interfere with freedom and independence in some way (probably in several ways given the big mess America's politicians and bankers have plunked her in); plus, it's a period when new approaches or ideas from the W-H are not viewed favorably, especially by those who prefer the status quo. Duh.

Now that can describe all the big sectors now balking at governmental reforms in their industries including financial, industrial, and medical. Yet carefully laid plans may succeed eventually so it's no reason or time for the forces of change and reform to give up the good fight even with discontented Americans being Neptunized by media and others with 'lose-your-health-insurance' and 'death panel' confusions meant to keep the President off-keel and his reform agenda stymied (until the Republicans can swagger back into the Oval Office and do more of their style of damage for Dem-style damage isn't the GOP's cuppa tea.)

MC ruler Venus 10Ari23 is in 8th house; Venus also rules 3rd house through Libra. In Mudane charts I tend to notice '11 Aries' no matter where it appears because its symbol is: "The President of the Country." Interestingly, the tr Mars/Neptune midpoint here is @ '14Tau' which is the Inauguration ASC degree, the office of the president...

Mars/Neptune = ASC: a strong mental focus on the subtle ways to use to compel or coerce others into adopting your ideas; focusing attention on the causes of confusion which surround tense situations encountered. (He did that last week on the stump. Wonder if he'll make recess appointments when the Rs are out of town for Congress' spring break? He'd be crazy not to.)

Warring Mars, so recently turned Direct on March 10, is approaching the W-H's natal Jupiter 3Leo51 so there will be a temptation to give others more credit than they deserve. Yet monetary matters can improve under this influence if other factors don't interfere too much (Saturn to Uranus?); the White House's role may expand in some way along with its physical efforts so Mars-to-n-Jupiter may encourage more troop deployments or the launching of new military campaigns (just what the world doesn't need.) Money may be what's expanded, however, so the bottomless pit of war will need more inflationary billions spent (Boeing fighters come to mind) and the President will be traveling abroad.

So let's close with the Sabian Symbol fo this New Moon which I must provide since it's absolutely perfect for the beginning of a new cycle of activity as timed by a New Moon: '26Pisc' = "A New Moon That Divides Its influences"...wonder if it means between health insurance and financial reforms?


And now here's a real treat: a New Moon interpretation from one of the ablest and most insightful astrologers around, Julie Demboski, who sees by the March 15, 2010 New Moon Outbursts of Beauty and Grace.

Lovely - and much nicer than grousing over hate-filled old Politics and corrupt political thespians...thanks, Julie!


*NWO degree '18Cap' refers to the 3rd and final Great Conjunction of Uranus and Neptune on Oct 24, 1993 @ '18Cap'. Here are the political thesis and antithesis of the Uranus/Neptune combination when activated, according to Michael Munkasey:

Changes in social and political structures due to new ideals and dreams of the future; revolutions or strikes focused on new ways of thinking; groups that form to exploit oil or chemical resources.

Sudden upsurges in the availability of illegal drugs; subversion used as a new method of acquiring information; movements that diminish the power or authority of the nation's leadership or police systems. (Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets.)

Senator Mitch McConnell on video

Oh this is mean of me to publish this old video from the RNC 2008 showing Senator Mitch McConnell looking how he looks best...

You may wish to check out the senator's natal chart if you haven't yet: Sun in confusing, mystical Pisces, Moon in either feisty, pioneering Aries or complacent, stubborn Taurus.

The post also displays the 'frictional' synastry grid between the natal charts of Sen. McConnell and President Obama. Funny how the Republicans keep seeming to forget: they lost. And eight years of their mis-rule were way too many for all but their fondest Kool-Aid drinkers and the 'elite base' - so GOP political futures must now depend upon the oft-mythologized American public as having a "short memory."

Maybe You Do, But I Don't

Ah, eight years of Bush! Remember the old accusation: congressional Republicans are spending like 'drunken sailors'? Why yes, they did! And look at all we don't have to show for it. Except for war, war, and more war...that, they're still doing. But funds for the people's needs? "Too expensive," in chorus, coming primarily from the Republican side of the aisle like parrots repeating a rich man's mantra.

Well, hopefully, in the November 2010 elections, the American voting public will remember the condition of our tattered, less free, bankrupted nation as that vampiric duo, Bush and Cheney, cleared out the rest of the US Treasury and skulked out of Washington, with ill-gained loot dripping from their bloody claws.

Why speak so graphically? Because if you're going to worship Lucifer and do his bidding, you have to expect such craven descriptions of your criminal activities.

Mitch McConnell Feb 20, 1942: Sun in Pisces

Synastry grid of natal charts: Across President Obama (D-WH); Down Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY); as you see I've circled squares, oppositions, inconjuncts, sesqui-squares, and semi-squares between the two men and have titled this synastry grid comparison, 'Friction and Tensions.'

Pictured below is the noon horoscope for Mitch McConnell, born Feb 20, 1942 in Tuscumbia, Alabama although his website skips Alabama entirely and goes directly to his being 'raised in south Louisville' Kentucky.

Yes, Tuscumbia is the birthplace of Helen Keller but perhaps Sen. McConnell's apex Neptune in a YOD pattern (with Sun sextile Moon - if he was born earlier than noon) gives us a clue: apex Neptune in a YOD configuration indicates one who in early years longs to be elsewhere in a better, calmer place.

In fact, discontented is a good word for him on more than one level, and he's something of an idealist who'd rather stay in his emotional ivory tower and ignore needed social adjustments. In a 'safe' emotional place you don't have to deal with real life's harsher realities yet this is the kind of inner (possibly unconscious) attitude that causes distortions in judgment and errors concerning others' situations (to the extent he notices them, one supposes.)

The senator may feel quite fearful and defensive when life fails to live up to the ideal vision of his Airy Jupiter - unless and until he learns to sacrifice whatever it takes in order to gain an intangible ideal; apex Neptune in a YOD pattern may indicate an illumined one who deeply delves into the mysteries of life.

If you've ever read this blog before you know that politically speaking I take all references to words such as 'illumined' or 'illumination' as a link to the Illuminati and its over-arching plan to rule the world - just in case...wouldn't want to miss a glaring honker like that!

These YOD factors are tied in to his Sun in Pisces (Jupiter/Neptune), and his natal South Node in Pisces indicates that he tends to 'fall back' on past, unconscious behaviors of a Piscean nature - perhaps alcohol, with Bacchus prominent (see chart.)

Now I've heard that Baptists 'don't drink' but I also hear that most senators consider themselves to be far above the natural laws the rest of us are subject to! Well, if he doesn't drink, perhaps he writes poetry or plays violin when he's in seclusion.

Senator McConnell has a Leonine Pluto/Chiron conjunction, the pair of plutocracy, oppression, fascism, sexism, and all the disenfranchising -isms you may care to name; plus, for him and for other Jupiterian Republicans, I'm-not-my-brother's-keeper-ism could be in the mix, too.

Now you see in the noon chart below that McConnell's Moon 4Tau36 has traveled from Aries recently - actually, @ 2:58 am CWT the Moon reached 00Tau00, so he either was born with a Sun Pisc/Moon Aries blend (Water-Fire = steam) or a Sun Pisc/Moon Taurus blend (Water-Earth = mud.)

Therefore, I shall include a few notes on both Sun/Moon blends since he seems more the quarrelsome Arian type than the placid Taurean type. Of course, Taurean Moons do like their creature comforts, don't they? And perhaps an Aries Moon is too fiery for the solemn fellow. Yet I always remember a famous man with an Aries Moon, so fond of spouting, "I AM the people." (Robespierre.)

And Senator McConnell keeps saying over and over (in an attempt to make it true) and speaking for us that the 'American people don't want' health insurance reform legislation to pass. Or is financial reform legislation his oft-repeated mantra of obstruction as he tells us what we (all) don't want?

Both health and financial, if either bill's passage means success for the President.

You see in his chart a massive trio of Mars, Saturn, and Uranus in stubborn, intolerant, greedy Taurus (the dark side of Taurus.) Those with Mars conj Saturn are not accustomed to having their plans challenged and can launch vicious attacks against adversaries, even to the point of physical violence; Saturn/Uranus conjunction folk have a talent for putting inspirations and innovations (Uranus) into form (Saturn), and lots of self-discipline for reaching their goals...Senator McConnell is purposeful and is not afraid of responsibility; he belongs in the socio-political a word, Politics. He's impatient with superficial people and may consider Mr. Obama to be one. Don't trifle with McConnell!

Sun Pisc/Moon Aries: independent; big talker; touchy; quarrelsome; understanding but self-centered; vivid imagination; willful; nervous; a quick thinker; introverted poet vs zealous crusader and explorer.

Weaknesses: fear that abilities and worth won't be noticed making him go overboard in efforts to win; taking himself too seriously makes him touchy, temperamental, and argumentative.

Images for Integration: In tattered rags, the small, obscure young servant named Arthur pulls the sword from the stone and becomes king of Camelot.

(Whoa, big aspirations for such a grumpy fellow - bet he'd love a White House stint!)

Sun Pisces/Moon Taurus: fantasy world vs mundane world; caring and capable; lover of harmony; emotionally demonstrative; sociable, charming, and sensual; a gentle, compassionate nature (?) backed by a real stubborn streak (!); appears compliant and low-profile but knows what's right for him - has a quiet strength that tells others, don't trifle with me; dreamer and realist.

Weaknesses: strongly subjective, emotional view of life; possessiveness; tends to maneuver situations to satisfy personal security needs; stubborn, old-fashioned, clings to the past.

Images for Integration: A nature mystique bakes bread in an earth oven...An artist decorates her home lavishly. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Well, as usual, there's a lot more to say about Senator McConnell's natal chart but the press of time weighs upon this gnat of a blogger so I shall ask you to click the chart to enlarge and read a few basic notes I've scribbled there which include the impressively long list of asteroids linked to his natal planets (Sun = Bacchus = Hermes! Pluto = *Nemesis, and interestingly, McConnell has been described as President Obama's political nemesis. Considering that McConnell's Nemesis-Pluto-Chiron trio is about two or three degrees from Mr. Obama's natal Sun, I must astrologically agree with that political assessment. Plus, Obama's natal Mercury 2Leo20 conjs MM's n Pluto - quite a planetary pile-up between them. As you know, Merc/Pluto contacts can be critical and cruel.)

But one more thing...the closest applying aspect to natal Sun which describes the core essence of our subject:

Sun inconjunct Pluto (150 degrees, aka, a quincunx): can take on duties that others neglect, then feel bitterly resentful about it; may overreact to the expectations of others; deep guilt causes continual striving to prove he's doing his share; makes punishing demands on himself so that moderation is needed to avoid health consequences; may compare himself to others who become bitter when forced to follow his example of overdoing; obsessed with gaining the admiration of others to whom he feels inferior; sacrifices must be made to realize ambitions; must learn to accept his limitations; can focus efforts on a particular objective and ignore nonessentials; wrestling with other people's wills should be avoided for best results - the less conflict and tension he creates in dealing with others, the better.

(Physically, a Sun/Pluto inconj may indicate heart issues or weakness.)

Since President Obama moved into the Oval Office, Senator McConnell seems to me to be more energized than ever to create conflict as part of the GOP's 'anything to undermine Obama' campaign in order to ensure, as Rush Limbaugh announced at the outset in January 2009, the failure of the Obama Presidency.

Never mind that where a US President goes, there goes our nation.

What do you think?


You'll find a few sketchy details on McConnell's Vietnam service at Wikipedia if you can stand to read of an entire daring month of his military derring-dos (that siren, Capitol Hill, was whispering his name and offering him apprenticeship.)


*Nemesis = the unbeatable foe; divine retribution; arch enemy.

Vaporizing comet: incoming! March 12, 2010

SpaceWeather News for March 12, 2010

Today, a newly discovered comet is plunging toward the sun for a close encounter it probably will not survive. The comet is rapidly vaporizing and appears very bright in coronagraph images from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

Visit SpaceWeather for movies of the ongoing encounter and more information about the comet. #


As Above So Below, anyone? Wonder who the 'newly discovered' comet represents? Whomever it may be, he/she is performing a phantastical impression of Icarus.

Ron Paul video: support of Kucinich's resolution 248

Here's a video of Rep. Ron Paul speaking in support of Rep. Dennis Kucinich's House concurrent resolution 248 to withdraw US boots from Afghanistan by Dec 31, 2010 but as you know, the vote tallied 65 - 356 on behalf of keeping our resources and fortunes tied down in Afghanistan (and protecting gas pipelines?) for the duration.

Well, if you're like me, you think the invasion, given cover by the attacks of 9/11, was meant to be a permanent occupation all along - and being there 8 1/2 years seems to support this over arching plan. Of course, this makes yesterday's vote predictable since no politician wants to admit being in the wrong - or be accused of making Congress look bad (as if it isn't too late!)

Yet I do appreciate that Mr. Kucinich and his resolution's nine co-sponsors (and the few who swallowed their pride long enough to vote for withdrawal) made the effort that shows the rest of the Capitol Hill warmongers look like what they are...shills on behalf of the war profiteers and perpetual-war ideologues who will wage war here in the 'homeland' if they deem it to their advantage.

American Empire we hardly knew ya

History can be a tiresomely accurate predictor of the future. Therefore, given the tendency of empires to collapse under their own unwieldy weights, it's quite possible that the Collapse of the American Empire may occur even sooner than we expect.

Has the big fat rump of imperialism spread about as far as it can go?

Financial Crisis 2008 - German hyper-inflation 1922/23

This is something of a 'pre-post' which may result, if time allows, in my writing an article on the Astrology of Germany's hyper-inflation era of 1922/23 which is said to have been caused by the privately owned Reichsbank of Germany. That our own creature, the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, has been at the base of the current financial collapse seems a given to me but perhaps more reading is in order.

Don't think I'll be changing my mind on it though...a long-planned, rigged collapse it was and is, astrologically orchestrated by 'secret hand' Pluto in Capricorn, sign of structure, law, government, politics, and business, and apex/focal planet in the Cardinal T-Square between Saturn/Uranus (opposing one another) that we're all reading and writing so much about these days and at the beginning of its full effect for Spring Equinox 2010.

Once again, here is the midpoint picture formed between the three T-Squared planets which were in similar configuration during the era of the Great Depression:

Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: desire to overcome a difficult situation through extraordinary effort; brutality; rebellion against one's lot in life; harm through force majeure; tremendous fear of loss; upheaval to protect assets; revolution; concealing changes to activities; termination of practices that have been hindering progress; drastic changes in a previously liberal atmosphere; rigid inflexibility replaces adaptation. (Ebertin; Tyl: Munkasey; all, some, or none may apply.)

These difficult planetary patterns will affect the collective from 2010 to 2014 which covers the following time frame of transits to the US chart and beyond...

As you know, transiting Pluto has been opposing US natal Venus (values, small amounts of money, relationships) in Cancer and will soon oppose US natal Jupiter, a period of time not favorable to US interests, finances, or partnerships.

Here's the plutonian schedule of hits to our natal 'Sibly' chart (5:10 pm LMT, July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA) with both our Venus and Jupiter in natal 7th house of Partnerships, Legal Affairs, and Open Enemies - dates are 'on or about' depending on your time zone:

Pluto oppo n Venus 3Can06: Dec 26, 2009; August 9, 2010; Oct 18, 2010.

Pluto oppo n Jupiter 5Can56: Jan 17, 2011; Nov 20, 2011; July 8, 2011.

As you see, only one opposition has occurred as of today - the Dec 26, 2009 stand-off to natal Venus. This transit indicates struggles for power and control in relationships and valuations with possible violence brought by the determined Mr. Hades. So from August 9, 2010 until July 8, 2011 (and thereafter) plutonian power struggles will be 'on' for control of America. (I use a 5-degree orb with Pluto transits. Perhaps you do, too.)

When Pluto opposes US natal Sun 13Can19 (Sun = the leader in a national chart - the 'president' to us), the mighty contest of wills is sure to be titanic and the possibilities of impotency and isolation are on the menu. The transit is within orb of US Sun beginning in very early 2012 (Pluto 8 Cap+) and in effect until 2017!

And Pluto will conjunct UK's natal Sun during this time. Hmmm...trouble on the powerful Can/Cap axis between the US and UK? A big break between us would be a major coup for someone, wouldn't it?

Of course, other transits to the US and *UK charts will occur simultaneously which either support or counterbalance the plutonian effects, yet my main grouse today is about the destructuring of forms and the belying of our perceived reality by catalyst Pluto's secretive actions.

To me, these transits say that US resources will be sufficiently depleted during that time period, if not before, that the 'secret' control heretofore exercised by string-pulling plutocrats may not remain as secret as before, and that abuse of power by the Sun will be best avoided since it won't work anyway. My disturbing expectation is that the US presidency will be transformed (further) or will be dispensed with altogether. This will affect whether America wins, or is allowed to win, the battle to act as the global domination czar.

So is the 2008 financial collapse a symptom - or signal - of a Hitler-esque mania for world domination, which is to be continued into complete totalitarianism?

If you check SO'W's sidebar (underneath the Current Moon Phase graphic) for 'Now Reading' you'll see a couple of links to interesting articles, one of which is 'German hyper-inflation 1922/23' that tells the tale of the economic conditions in the Rhineland leading up to Hitler's seizing of power on Jan 30, 1933. (Adolf and Franklin sittin' in a tree...s-e-i-z-i-n-g?)

Well, if Hitler hadn't been a murderous psychopath who psychologically splintered before everyone's eyes (perhaps in part from syphilis? cirrhosis?), one wonders what the modern condition of Germany would be. Sadly, we may eventually discover that such a model is in existence before our own eyes, and it will too late to stop it once the deed is done. Perhaps this is the meaning and outcome of Pluto-opposing-natal-Sun after Mr. Hades vanquishes our Venus and Jupiter, both planets relating to Money and Resources, and Sun representing such things as political power, control of resources, willpower, and life path or purpose.

You know, transits to natal charts continue after death so it may be worth noting that **Hitler's natal Moon/Jupiter conjunction (6Cap38 and 8:15) will also be transformed by a visit from Pluto during this period.

Tiresome subjects? Agreed! But you know what they say: just because you have no interest in Politics doesn't mean that the raptor's gaze of Politics hasn't fallen threateningly upon you.


*UK's modern chart: Jan 1, 1801 12:00 am (NS); London, from historical record; Sun 10Cap11 at IC, Moon 19Can26 in 10th house; natal YOD: Jupiter/Uranus = Pluto: tremendous drive to success; receiving a bounty; great gains; devices with potential to transform the world; sudden financial changes. Apex Pluto in YOD pattern is karmic: possesses penetrating perceptions not shared or easily understood by others; momentous situations lead to destined changes but something must die or regenerate first (such as an old order?); long years of preparation bring a new level of power that's been purged of all vulnerabilities; has organizational control over super-structures in society; can revolutionize world concepts and usher in a new world order.

And this is in the UK's natal chart, not ours!

Negatively managed, apex Pluto in a YOD may de-elevate the individual (each of us, not Pluto! Astrology follows AC-DC principles) to a frustrating level of obscurity and isolation; Mr. Hades is openly defiant about undermining existing authority at any cost and he's been 'purging vulnerabilities' for years now (paraphrasing Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, Bil Tierney.)

**Adolf Hitler's natal chart (Rodden Rating AA): born April 20, 1889 6:30 pm (-0:52:08) in Braunau am Inn, Austria; Sun 00Tau48 conjunct n DESC 26Ari41 and asteroid, MIDAS 00:31; Hitler's Sun degree is called his 'trigger point' and has shown itself to be a violent degree of the zodiac. His first contact with Gottfried Feder in June 1919 and the great impression Feder made on him involved Feder's captivating ideas on money which Hitler used eventually against the Reichsbank in order to take over control of the nation.

Adolf 'hothead' Hitler's natal ASC has his Jupiter/Saturn midpoint upon it suggesting that liver imbalance was behind his extreme moodiness which obviously would have been made much worse by years of alcohol consumption. His Moon/Jupiter conjunction is implicated, too, with both ruled by Saturn - more Jup/Sat influences upon the physical body (Moon and ASC); Moon in Cap is ambitious, yes, but also emotionally deprived in childhood giving him a feeling of emotional entitlement increased greatly by Jupiter's over-the-top presence. jc
