Obama on Iraq tonight 8:00 pm edt w/ Pisces Rising

This evening at 8:00 pm edt, President Obama will speak for approximately 15 minutes on the ending of official combat operations in Iraq, a war begun on March 20, 2003 6:35 am Baghdad time with 8Ari16 rising.

There's no time this morning to blog on the Iraq War chart itself but I can say that in tonight's TV speech chart, the first planet to rise will be 2003's Mercury 27Pis19, the spot where transiting Jupiter and Uranus have visited off and on of late and still hover.

Tonight at Aries Point tr Uranus 00Ari59 Rx is first to rise with Jupiter 00Ari59 Rx in tow as chart-ruler. As you know, any time a chart's ruler is Rx indicates delays having to do with the function of that planet. (This may refer to the '50,000' US soldiers left in Iraq. Now Jupiter indicates many things on various levels and billions of dollars in war costs is definitely one of them. The Bush-Cheney invasion of sovereign nation Iraq was begun with Jupiter Rx 8Leo25 which sat upon Bush's natal Ascendant and conjoined the natal Mercury positions of the GOP and Senator John McCain.

This at the time indicated to this reluctant astrologer a 'bottomless pit in the money department' as I described it. Eventually tr Jupiter in Aries will trine Iraq War Jupiter in Leo bringing a time of compatibility and success. Pisces Rising points to Neptune as well so we may find the speculation pair (Jupiter/Neptune) of influence in the President's speech tonight. Perhaps he will address the thorny issues of independent contractors and mercenaries.

At 8:00 pm edt in Washington DC this evening, the midpoint of Moon/NN, a significator of public contact, rises...Moon/NN = ASC: establishing personal connections; maintaining inner contacts with others.

Lots of publicity ensues, and pundits must have their jobs and salaries justified.

The Sun/Moon phase is Disseminating (261 degr 23 mins) which is a time when the info, message, and propaganda may be spread far and wide. 8:00 pm edt is an Hour of Saturn indicating 'stoppage' but also control of the narrative. Saturn 4Lib07 is in 7th house of the President's speech, the house of Partnerships, and traversing between US n MC 00Lib53 (Sibly chart) and our nation's natal Saturn (with our Saturn Return upcoming, a three-fer as mentioned in a previous post.)

But has America yet learned Saturn's lessons of accountability and responsibility?

Now with tonight's Uranus conjunct 2003's Sun 29Pis07, we may expect a 'going off in a new direction' theme (as advertised) in order to find a new identity - the ID as 'occupier' having grown stale and overly expensive. Also tonight's Jupiter hovers around 2003's Mercury showing a need for new experiences and methods yet taking on too many projects at once must come to an end. We expect the President to focus more attention and money on fighting in Afghanistan where many empires have failed before us.

Plus, we remember that the 2003 Iraq Invasion was a war of choice a la Bush and Cheney who shackled our nation in more ways than one with the power elite's misguided ideologies such as 'A New American Century' and the '1% Gang' of Dick Cheney and pals.

But since they were determined to do it, electing to invade after April 4, was the better choice since Jupiter the General would have been moving Direct thus shortening the war effort and costing less in taxpayer money. And with Saturn to US n Mars, it makes you wonder if the muddled outcome all these years was precisely their intention...more war profits, you know.

The North Node of public encounter conjoins 2003's Mars 9Cap41 (contacts concerning Iraq) near 2003's MC 4Cap59; tr Pluto Rx tonight @ 2Cap50 has crossed and recrossed the Iraq War's MC in recent months indicating that drifting along is no longer an option. Please form yourself a government, Iraqis!

Tonight, tr Pluto/NN = 2003's MC: dependence of one's future upon associations which influence one's objectives in life and may cause setbacks in one's career.

The speech's Moon 29Tau50 contacts 2003's NN 1Gem22 echoing the public notice of the President's speech which will be followed in Baghdad; Mr. Obama's natal Moon 3Gem21 is nearby and communicating (Gem) with the public (Moon.)

The war's Saturn 22Gem45 conjuncts US n Mars = circumventing rules and regulations is ill-advised; a firm determination to succeed is needed along with more organization and focus. Physical efforts are difficult to say the least with dampening Saturn on America's military forces planet, Mars, god of war.

Tonight's 29th-degree Moon is at a critical crisis degree which shows the the people's dire condition in America - and in Iraq - and Moon is the only one out-of-bounds which signifies a large amount of emotional insecurity about our daily needs which expensive wars tend to ignore, as we see on Capitol Hill. (Our needs are 'unaffordable' says Congress, yet more war funds are easily found, etc. Taurus is all about the creature comforts; Moon also conjoins Fixed Star Alcyone: something to cry about and has a mystical yet judgmental vibe.)

And of course, tr Neptune and Chiron continue traveling in tandem upon US natal Moon in Aquarius (we-the-people) so fraud is still an option for use against us as our domestic conditions continue to waver or disintegrate.

Looking ahead, the human tendency toward holding unrealistic expectations will be evident again regarding US foreign policy when tr Neptune reaches Pisces and conjoins the Iraq War's Uranus 00Pis30: ideals and ideologies will conflict with technical and economic conditions and almost anything can happen. One thing is clear: the US invasion of Iraq will reverberate in global society for years to come no matter how effectively President Obama says his 'peace' tonight.

Okay, 'nuff said. Except for three things:

1. tonight's Venus 23Lib is conjunct more than Arcturus (a different approach) and Spica (potential for brilliance), but the Iraq War's Moon 23Lib06 as well which indicates popularity of the idea, if not the reality, of US troops' combat operations ending in Iraq.

2. the Sabian Symbol for the President's Sun this evening...

'9 Virgo' = "A Man Making a Futurist Drawing"...EXPERIMENT...

positive expression: a gift for the illimitable expansion of the human mind and a consequent extension of its powers;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: complete and continuous confusion of ideas. (Jones.)

('Extension of its powers'?? Confusion used as an oratory tactic?)

3. tonight, the planet of the masses, mass media, deception, and glamour sextiles MC (the goal; the larger world) at 8:00 pm, so we may expect much subtly within the President's message as he uses Neptune's subliminal talents to influence policy and get others to go along with him, thus avoiding opposition and confrontation. He hopes, as he employs a vision and symbolism to create a framework for future decisions.

That's Politics!


Note: my experience timing TV appearances with their horoscope is that speakers usually begin about 2 or 3 minutes after the scheduled hour. If so, at 8:02 pm edt, the ASC = 19Pis10...'20Pis' = "A Table Set for an Evening Meal" which seems to refer to ending combat ops in Iraq; my greatest fret is that it also refers to the closing operations of our nation.

'To abolish poverty, abolish plutocracy' (Rutherford B. Hayes)

Here's the rest of the above quote from our 19th President Rutherford B. Hayes (1822 - 1893) but I wonder which modern day Republicans (or Democrats) would like to hear it much less implement it. For then their over-stuffed gravy train would have to be brought to a screeching halt instead of honest people's incomes dissolving into thin air:

"Abolish plutocracy if you would abolish poverty. As millionaires increase, pauperism grows. The more millionaires, the more paupers."

That pretty much explains the widening gap between haves and have-nots. And his statement sounds as if Mr. Hayes didn't consider the government he was part of as a plutocracy already in authority and ruling their shriveled little hearts out.

But then he did say "if you would" abolish poverty, didn't he?

So now you know what I'm about to type, don't you? That 'pauperism' is another of Pluto/Chiron's words of oppression, another -ism from their very long to-do list. Yep.

And it amuses me that President Hayes was perhaps the first-ever multi-tasker for he was the first president to have a telephone and a typewriter in the White House at the same time!


From SO'W's In Case You Missed It Department: Ron Paul calls for an Audit of US Gold Reserves. Great idea. As if.

Gandhi's good question and JP Morgan's Astrology

"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?" Gandhi

A while back I posted another of Gandhi's quotes along with a smidgeon of details on his natal chart. Included is an excerpt from the 1922 book by Senator Richard Pettigrew Triumphant Plutocracy which you may find enlightening.

Pluto's realm of plutocracy, the form of government we have here in America and have always had, is co-ruled and more fully described by the pairing of Chiron with Pluto. The current Chiron/Pluto midpoint is necessarily conjoined to the transiting Neptune/Pluto midpoint because Neptune and Chiron have been conjunct of late. Both midpoints have been conjoining the position of our national Sun (leader) off and on since before Barack Obama took office.

Might this describe pressure on the president or his collusion with them? With Goldman-Sachs and Clinton agents surrounding him in the White House, it could be either way - probably alternating! My suspicion is that White House tenures for Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner were part of the prerequisite for Mr. Obama's term in the Oval Office.

In other words, without them, he wouldn't be there at all (in more way$ than one.)

Robber Barons Ride Again - well, their biological and ideological spawn do, anyway

Now you remember Neptune/Pluto as the Robber Baron duo whose Great Conjunction/s of 1891 and 1892 time the rise of the great industrialists, oil titans, and corporations. President Teddy Roosevelt put a damper on their style for a while by using US law to bust them up in the early 1900s yet they've continued to thrive and multiply all the same with the US Congress turning on ordinary Americans in favor of corporations.

And recently SCOTUS put its finger on the Scales of Justice by joining the uplift-corporations parade - as if the political playing field weren't skewed against we-the-people already.

Insidious Neptune/Pluto

Separately both Neptune and Pluto relate to oil, gas, things hidden in the ground, and to the tunnels and caves it takes to reach them - in the earth and under the sea.

Here are the dates and degrees of Neptune/Pluto's great hook-ups:

1. August 2, 1891 @ 8Gem38
2. November 7, 1891 @ 8Gem19
3. April 30, 1892 @ 7Gem42

Nuclear degrees, yes, and Pluto's 1930 discovery heralded the atomic age.

But also this area of the zodiac is where asteroid Midas currently traverses (though 'he' just recently reached past 9Gem) and we see how things are playing out for the legendary, archetypal gold-hoarder Midas who has cornered the market on every natural resource possible, along with major gold manipulations.

Is it a coincidence that Midas now inhabits the area of the Great Conjunction/s of Neptune/Pluto's oil barons?

Not if you think 'there are no accidents' or that 'things happen for a reason', as is commonly said. And you don't have to delve very far into Astrology to discover the special branch known as Financial Astrology where markets are timed by the As Above, So Below principles of the ancient art. Astrologers who possess financial expertise make big bucks consulting with investors and the financial wizards of Wall Street.

"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do," are the famous words of old J. P. Morgan, a client and student of astrologer Evangeline Adams, the Adams family descendant who popularized Astrology in NYC at the turn of the 20th century. Seems her talent in this area was inherited.

Well, here's a link to a post I wrote on the Neptune/Pluto-era magnate's natal chart (w/ chart image, rated accurate) and get ready because you'll find that J. P. was born with Pluto, the Dragon guarding the world's riches, conjunct (of all things) Midas!

And how does America and our financial system fit into this picture? Snugly, with our nation's natal Uranus, planet of revolution, rebellion, independence, and genius positioned in 1776 @ 8Gem55.

Apparently it's the universe that's in collusion!

Sometimes you may have to agree with Ahmadinejad

If Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad comes up with a logical answer that explains the source of all crises around the globe, I just may have to agree with the fellow.

Drat!%*#. Thanks, corrupt US politicians.

Whether Western or Eastern, global crime syndicates are wreaking havoc across the planet and my suspicion is that their members both foreign and domestic are playing on the same team against the rest of us.

Unfortunately, most people never heard the starting whistle so disqualification came in mid-game.

Mercury Rx until Sep 12, 2010, psyops a favored tool

After the post I published earlier today with mention of America's natal Mercury/Pluto opposition and our Mercury/Pluto cycle which began Jan 18, 1776 @ 26Cap32, I was somehow directed toward an informative article containing info on the current Mercury Rx period (August 20 - Sept 12, 2010), psyops, thought control, propaganda, George Orwell's 1984, Noam Chomsky, and government which I believe you'll find worthwhile.

Especially if you don't appreciate such crap as words used as sinister tools, superficial debates, government programs intended to accomplish the opposite of what their names imply, and being spied on by satellites, cameras, and other contraptions that pry, spy, and nose into what should be nobody's b'ness but your own.

The Thought Overlords' mind control techniques have never been more savvy, effective, and entertaining (she typed as she watched the last 3 minutes of The Emmys with a favorite comedian hosting, Mr. Jimmy Fallon.)

Anyhow, the above-linked article really knocked my socks off so do check it out if you wish and pass it around if you may!

Washington DC a 'New Rome'? Altair the Eagle says, Yes

In my last post I wondered aloud if the world is any better off because the British Empire morphed into the American Empire. World populations still groan in pain under imperialistic oppression no matter its national origins or current moniker. And my deepest suspicion is that US-Brit political relations show a joining of empires more than is usually admitted in public although some inner conflicts between factions on each side of the Atlantic and ego games for control are in evidence.

Yet no real rift between us exists when it comes to global conquest.

In fact, puppet master Pluto of secret hand fame rises with Fixed Star Altair each March. The keywords for Altair (alpha Aquila) are: boldness and determination; exploration (Brady.)

So each US Inauguration Day since 1937, the Sun (leader) conjoins Altair at 00AQ+, and on January 20, 2009, Mercury Rx joined in on that degree. Oath-taking Mercury's Rx condition resulted, as you know, in President Obama's taking a second Oath of Office due to Justice Roberts' flubbing (Mercury) when administering #1.

It seems no accident to me that during FDR's administration the date for US presidential inaugurations was changed from early March (usually the 3rd or 4th) to January 20 - after all, to paraphrase FDR's famous quote: Nothing in politics happens by accident; if it happens you can be sure it was meant to happen.

Freemason F. D. Roosevelt would have known about the astrological differences of the date switch which was done purposefully. (Teddy R. was also an initiated Freemason.)

(FDR's admission about politics under girds many of my snarly remarks on this and other blogs concerning Politics as practiced in Washington, DC and the loss of hearing on Capitol Hill when it comes to the voices and preferences of we-the-people. Consider me permanently in a snit of miffdom over Washington politicians' sorriness and the ordinary US citizen's deplorable lack of representation.)

And since I've been intending for years now to post a dual view of FDR's Inaugurations 1933 and 1937, I shall do so below. Hopefully you can read the basic chart details by clicking to enlarge the image. Note the change of ASC degree and Sun degree and the changing Fixed Stars they highlight - 1933 vs 1937...the changes are no accident, as FDR might say (notwithstanding the thin justifications given for the date switch at the time. As you know, Freemasonry is big on Fixed Stars and on using Electional Astrology to time events such as cornerstone layings, speeches, wars, presidential inaugurations, etc.)

FDR Inaugurations 1933 (lower left) and 1937 (upper right.)

Now astrologers, hip to the use of the Roman symbolism of The Eagle as America's totem, often note the connection with the mystical sign of Scorpio and its eagle, scorpion, and phoenix archetypes representing various levels of evolution.

This may be one reason not to automatically jettison the use of the speculative Scorpio Rising chart as a natal horoscope for the US, imho, though I agree that a Sag Ascendant with Jupiter ruling has much merit given our nation's traditional optimism, expansion urges, and constant search for wealth and resources (even though they may belong to someone else.)

Capitol Hill named after Jupiter's Temple in Rome

The US natal horoscope I'm using is set for July 4, 1776 6:30 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA: ASC 29SAg43...'30Sag' = "The Pope Blessing the Faithful" which as you see describes another link between Washington, DC and Rome. And yes, there is a particular astrological reason I'm using the 6:30 pm chart which does just barely keep Jupiter as chart-ruler while having a crisis-ridden 29th degree on the ASC-DESC axis. You may have noticed that if America doesn't have a crisis situation or enemy to deal with, she always manages to find a few and make some others.

Then there's the much-touted "Manifest Destiny" which is one of Jupiter's calling cards, too, with its embedded superiority complex allegedly allowing our nation to do as it pleases, no matter the consequences, and against all odds - Jupiter's lucky chance/risk-taking function in play as we brazenly invade other nations.

My feeling is that the American War Machine's insistence on promoting endless war has been a dire result of that particularly American vision of US presidents and those who install them for world domination purposes, with terms such as New World, New Atlantis, one-world-government, New Order of the Ages, and the supposedly mild 'New Age' and 'Aquarian Age' as euphemisms for the New World Order of totalitarianism.

Plus, you don't get to be #1 in the Oval Office (egg-shaped = Venus, our Inaugural chart-ruler since 1937, hence the ruler of the Office of the President) without adhering to the Utopian vision which in the New Millennium is revealing its intended global reach and its true motivations. Did you really think as president that Barack Obama would or could be any different?

"Every day in every way I am getting better and better." (The Jupiter Mantra of Emile Coue.) That's until you've over-extended yourself and you're not.

Yes, even our national 'pursuit of happiness' falls under jolly Jupiter's sphere of influence - and US n Jupiter conjuncts n Venus closely (happiness and felicity!) and conjuncts n Sun by 7 degrees (ego inflation.) US n Mercury Rx is also in home-oriented Cancer so we tend to think and speak that way as well; our Mercury/Pluto opposition indicates plutonic control and manipulation of our thinking and communication functions...Pluto's propaganda has been used against us since our nation's founding or before.

I say 'before' because our national Mercury/Pluto cycle began with their conjunction on January 18, 1776 @ 26Cap32, our modern-day Inaugural Midheaven degree. The transiting and oppressive Pluto/Chiron midpoint conjoined the Jan 20, 2009 MC, and off and on goes ahead into Aquarius to conjunct US Inaugural Sun, the President!

'27Cap' = "Pilgrims Climbing the Steep Steps Leading to a Mountain Shrine"; keyword: UPREACHING (Rudhyar.)

This relates to the vision of the Pilgrims and to the floating capstone on the back of America's Great Seal and the US dollar bill with its Eye of Providence in place of a monarchical Sun emblem. Pyramid symbol = Mountain and perhaps we can discuss this later. Or have yourself a Google and a Bing and you won't need me. The Chymical Wedding may be a good starting place if you require one.

Now it's fairly unusual that I copy/paste another's text to such a degree as I am about to do with the info I've just found. You'll find a link to the text at the end of the author's text for your convenience.

George Washington envisioned a wooded area alongside the Potomac River as the new federal city. The highest hill in the area, Jenkins Heights, was then owned by Daniel Carroll. In 1663, the owner of this land had been Francis Pope. Pope's name for the high hill was "Rome", and he called the nearby waterway "the Tiber." [1]

Ancient Rome was a mere city which conquered the world. Although it apparently declined and fell, some say it did not fall but changed its form into the Roman Catholic Church and still dominates the world. Echoing this idea, science fiction writer Philip K. Dick theorized an enormous false memory imposed upon all humanity in which the last 2000 years of "history" never happened. According to Dick, author of the VALIS trilogy, we have been brainwashed by the Roman Empire to think we are living in what is really a totally false world. [2]

There is a Vatican-Jesuit-Illuminati-Templar connection to our nation as well but it's beyond the scope of this spontaneously typed post.

Another wrinkle may be found in the Sabian Symbol for our presidential Sun @ '1AQ', as of 1937: "An Old Adobe Mission" = keyword: DURABILITY...

positive manifestation: effective breadth of vision and a respect-compelling depth of character;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: lack of ambition and blind adherence to superficialities. (Marc Edmund Jones.)

Dane Rudhyar gives '1AQ' as THE CONCRETIZATION OF AN IDEAL and says it 'implies the "immortalization" of an individual within a great collective and cultural enterprise.'

The enterprise is a Utopian, secular America and the helming of it and the 'immortalization of an individual' relates to the presidential cult of personality we've been conditioned to be so fond of as the land of Sun (leader) worship, with revolutionary Uranus, the planet of individuality and independence, closely identified with our original patriot cause.

This word picture relates on a deeper level to Hermeticist and Dominican monk Tommaso Campanella (1568 - 1639) and his novel City of the Sun which tells of a Utopian society of 'Solarians' where all goods are held in common - including women who are not allowed to hold leadership positions. This is a form of theocracy that sets up an "ideal Solar civilization" and I have to say that America is the model vehicle for this so-called Utopia so far. Prior to 1776, Campanella's novel and its Solar ideas were well known to those who seeded the founding of the New World. Old world kings ruled under the symbol of the life-giving Sun.

Here I refer you to the excellent book The Secret History of the West by Nicholas Hagger from which I quote; paperback, page 224 details Freemasonry and (Sir) Francis Bacon's influence upon our founding:

"At Bacon's instigation towards the end of the 16th century distinguished people who were not builders were admitted into the fraternity (often to help with funding) and were called "Accepted" Masons. They received the secret universal knowledge of the oneness and brotherhood of mankind and the Secret Doctrine of the Ages that America would become a Utopian New Atlantis and create a better world in which humanity would be deified. In this paradise, men would follow a religion of reason and become gods and work for a universal world republic that would replicate the Utopian conditions in Atlantis throughout the world. Meanwhile the secret knowledge would be passed on from generation to generation in the Freemason's Temple."

Note that human beings are to stand in God's place in this society. Or so they think. Yet in the 1790s, its chaotic principles of 'reason' didn't work so well in France, did they? I think our Thomas Jefferson just fanned himself in his grave.

Bacon, Hagger notes, is considered the founder of English Freemasonry and of the Rosicrucian Order; a Rosicrucian code decipher was found in the effects of Thomas Jefferson after his demise. Hagger also states that Bacon believed that English colonization of the New World would result in the New Atlantis as a Utopian society.

And Washington DC remains the legendary 'Shining City on a Hill' for Ronald Reagan and Bush Sr said so as have others. Senator Ted Kennedy made this statement during the confirmation hearings for John Roberts:

"From the start, America was summoned to be a shining city on a hill. But each generation must keep building that city."

"Summoned"? How very esoteric of him! And one assumes that Justice Roberts is part of the vision's implementation and wouldn't sit where he sits if he weren't.

Actually, 'Shining City on a Hill' is one of John Winthrop's ideas, a Pilgrims' vision (if you click, be aware that some propaganda may apply on the site.)

Well, after all my grousing today I shall merely suggest that the current condition of the United States of America either confirms or denies the intelligence and the prudence of such a far-seeing endeavor especially now that Jupiter the General is leading the way, ignoring national borders and sovereignties, and bankrupting our nation while we-the-people's needs are considered 'too costly' by our Jupiterian Capitol Hill crew. (The Bush-Cheney-Obama TARP money was surreptitiously sent to foreign banks, remember.)

So congratulations! For if you've slogged through and read this far you now know much of what I think about these topics. But what do you think?

LeCarre outs James Bond as "neo-fascistic"

A few months ago I picked up my tattered, yellowed paperback copy of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and happily reread it. The last time must have been over 20 years ago. Even yellowed, the drama kept its grim sparkle intact.

So when I heard that author John LaCarre, former MI5 and MI6 agent for Britain back in the day, had outed Ian Fleming's character James Bond as not really a spy but "something neo-fascistic and totally materialistic it seemed quite interesting to me.

So I smiled enigmatically (rather as George Smiley might do) and knew I just had to pass on this tidbit to you.

In fact, Raw Story's article has a link to LeCarre's opinion piece from 2003 which appeared in The Times of London entitled, "The United States has gone mad." And we had. And our mad spell continues 7+ years later with 'leaders' who promote the same old military and weapons economy that obscenely enriches the few while costing the many so dearly -- to their very lives.

Now I'm wondering if the world has been well-served by the British Empire morphing into the American Empire and the global crime syndicate's use of the United States of America as its military and enforcement arm.

Actually, I'm being a cheeky monkey here for I'm not wondering at all. For those who care for the common good of their fellow man and woman already know the answer.

Here's more on LeCarre's views of the US gone mad and then some.

Astrology: Dueling Rallies in DC - Beck v Sharpton 8.28.10

If you've been in a cave lately you may have missed the news of two rallies being held in Washington DC tomorrow, August 28, one to mark the 47th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's I Have a Dream speech which was delivered at the Lincoln Memorial and which will be led by former civil rights activist Al Sharpton and the other led by erstwhile Obama opponents, FOX News and its prevailing mouthpiece, Glenn Beck.

Billed as a rally to honor our troops (who could use it), Beck's logic is somewhat turned on its head when one remembers Reverend King's opposition to the Vietnam War and America's tendency to use her less well-connected citizens to fight rich men's wars. For oddly enough, it's the FOX News-Beck rally being held at the Lincoln Memorial and Beck has claimed that he didn't at first realize the rally was scheduled for anniversary of MLK's famous speech - and in the exact same location at Lincoln's feet.

That Beck was unaware is difficult for me to fall for, how about you? But if true, perhaps a refresher course in US history may be in order for Mr. Beck and his colleagues who should have advised him. Methinks it more likely there's a skunk hiding in the woodpile!

Be that as it may, we know the ongoing Cardinal T-Square gives the same old difficult midpoint picture it's been giving the world of late between the two societal planets, Jupiter and Saturn, and manipulative string-puller Pluto in Capricorn. On the morrow, one is tempted to say that Pluto represents the powers-behind-the-FOX-News-rally, the Koch Brothers, who have funded much of the Tea Party's efforts in order to get people in the streets and undermine President Obama's term in the White House, to rally GOP voters - and to assure ballooning corporate profits for the Koch family.

That honest grasroots Tea Party members don't speak out about the whackiness of being funded by a massive corporation whose fortune has been made in several realms including petroleum and the manufacture of known carcinogenic, formaldehyde, is beyond me. Don't they feel their movement to be co-opted and secretly directed by those with quite a different agenda than taking back our government - co-opted by those who hide their faces and true motives?

Jupiter/Saturn = Pluto: transforming personal ideas about the future into today's reality; intense business activity; a total reversal of previously made plans; immense effort; toil; violent restrictions; separation. (All mdpt pics in this post from R. Ebertin; M. Munkasey.)

The point of meetings and encounters, the North Node (NN; 10Cap16) of the Moon (with the separative SN now in the midst of US natal planets in Cancer: will calls for Geithner's and Summers' firings lead to separation from the president?) nears its worrisome conjunction with tr Pluto on November 9, 2010 @ 3Cap36 - the Moon conjoins and possibly triggers them @ 3:13 pm est in DC; Pluto/NN = Moon: others arouse sensitive passions; uncertainties after meeting powerful people; the ups and downs of encounters taken to extremes)...but for Saturday's rallies, Pluto and NN remain approximately 7 degrees apart.

Here are three midpoint pictures which center on Saturday's NN and which you may find to be quite descriptive of the planned activities:

Mars/Jupiter = NN: increased ability to push your ideas and plans on others; attracting people who have similar ideas about the use of force in competitive activities (November 2010 midterms? jc); good cooperation dynamics.

Venus/Jupiter = NN: making proper connections with people able to support your ideas or causes; joining groups that value your opinions; meetings where feedback is received about your doctrines or ideas.

Venus/Uranus = NN: attention-getting methods that use disruption; intensification of feelings leads to new associations.

Well, it's after midnight so I shall close with a bit on the rallies' Sun Virgo-Moon Aries combo whose traits include...diligence; idealistic dedication; caustic wit; bossiness; committed; workaholic; skillful and pragmatic; a tendency toward scathing criticism; excessive verbosity; possessing a know-it-all attitude.

(Note: this is the natal Sun-Moon combination of Dick Cheney.) (Correction: not so! see Comments below this post: Cheney's natal Sun is in AQ w a Pisces Moon - thanks a bunch for catching it, Pete! jc)

This Sun-Moon combo has one Image for Integration: A jolly, rotund monk enjoying his food and wine while excelling in well-worn Latin sayings, witty responses, and kindly good humor. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, by Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

A 'rotund monk' (Beck?) and Sarah Palin, too? Well, 'kindly good humor' does sound lovely, doesn't it?

Yet this day of duelling rallies in DC should be quite interesting, emotionally manipulative in time for November elections, and full of agitation and exaggeration. And perhaps it's catty of me to say so, but I will be listening closely for Palin's erudite remarks in Latin.

That's an inventive verbosity I'd really like to hear.

June-July-August 2010 brings attacks on Jupiter

Perhaps you've heard that Jupiter has experienced at least three attacks recently from what are probably meteors and comets.

It's been observed before - in 1994 and in olden days by the discoverer of four of Saturn's Moons, Giovanni Casini. Perhaps Jupiter's ongoing transit to Aries Point has helped put the Great Benefic's woes in the news since the Cardinal Points are where large events tend to manifest...and Jupiter's all about large, isn't he? He even has a broadcasting role to play when he gets a chance and a pulpit.

And with revolutionary Uranus enjoined with Jupiter, perhaps the 'sudden events' on planet Jupiter's surface are compliments of The Awakener, aka, The Witness, for Uranus is capable of providing sudden attacks or shocks to any system. Either way, one of my favorite planets, Jupiter, is under attack for a third time in August but in his guise as 'Zeus' or 'Jove' he seems to be holding up well so far even though Saturn opposes him and Pluto squares his desires!

(Ongoing is: Jupiter/Saturn = Pluto: tremendous perseverance; dramatic thrust of self; control of the situation; major change of situation; fearless.)

For after all, our solar system desperately needs Jupiter in his role along with Saturn as the Flywheel of the Universe which keeps the planets in their courses because their balance (Jupiter expansion vs Saturn restriction) is what holds planet Earth snugly in The Great Mathematician's hand.

The tension in their relationship undergirds the yin-yang, positive-negative, light-dark of our dualistic world!

Well, this evening Lady Luna joins Jupiter and Uranus and will be 'between' them at AP by late tonight and will sail just beyond them in the very wee hours of Friday morning. This gives three midpoint pictures to consider for our Moon-related daily rounds - well, nightly rounds, in this case.

From Noel Tyl's midpoint directory we find as Moon approaches Uranus:

Moon/Jupiter = Uranus: confidence; expectation of reward.

Then just before midnight (Aug 26, 2010) we have:

Jupiter/Uranus = Moon: opportunity for major change; looking ahead to success.

Finally, the Moon sails beyond the guru and the genius and for a few fleeting minutes there's:

Moon/Uranus = Jupiter: sudden success; large plans to put the self forward.

Yes, 'fleeting' is the word when it comes to the fluctuating Moon in transit, but these days we all must look for a spot of relief wherever we may find it, however brief.

And for expert info on the pairing of Jupiter and Uranus you can't do better than Scotland's Anne Whitaker who has a blog dedicated to the exploratory, eureka! combo at Jupiter Meets Uranus.

Hope the Moon-Jupiter-Uranus hook-up brings you a good and restorative evening!

Wikileaks leaks again Aug 25, 2010

Wikileaks Posts Classified CIA Memo

By Al Jazeera

The whistleblower organisation Wikileaks has released a classified CIA document asking what would happen if foreign countries began to view the US as "an exporter of terrorism." #

What would happen if they began to view the US that way?

My most private opinion is that foreign countries - particularly those the Pentagon is bombing like the devil - obviously know a terror exporter when they see and/or experience one.

Who wouldn't?


Note: the CIA memo mentioned above is not the leak which I heard was promised for leaking today. Watery Neptune sits upon US natal Moon (the people) so I'm ready for Neptune's classifed leaks any day now.

Zionism and the natal chart of Israel

Zionism has been called out as racism and colonialism and I find myself having to agree these days. That one race has to suffer to exalt another hardly seems to me the basis of the original movement as founded by Theodor Herzl.

Now don't get me wrong: growing up in a family where the principles of the Protestant Bible were top of the list, the scriptural admonition to 'Pray for the peace of Israel' is something I've always taken very seriously, especially in these late days, but it would be easier to do if warring, oppressive Zionists weren't in charge.

Plus, if you've read this blog more than once, you may be aware of my fairly constant use of the astrological pair of -isms of all sorts: Chiron and Pluto, which, when working together (in aspect or as midpoint which combines their energies) indicates oppression, primal violence, disenfranchisement, Zionism, fascism, totalitarianism, nationalism, capitalism, communism, racism, ageism...well, the list of what man willingly uses to harm his fellow man is quite endless, isn't it?

That's why I was interested to find an article asserting that America should oppose Zionism - not Israel, of course - but those who helm the ship of state in Tel Aviv and force their version of Zionism into position as master of Israel's fate.

Why, it's as if warhawk neocons coup'd the White House and reared their heads at the Pentagon in 2000...oh wait a minute. They did. And America suffered the attacks of 9/11/01 immediately thereafter which some believe was a false flag op to rally the US into yet another war. Which it did. And the State of Israel is one of the main suspects in that little conspiracy theory. By their fruits ye shall know them.

Then there's Joe Biden, our gaffe-prone, publicly avowed 'Zionist', who is currently installed as US VP now and continues the same endless war policy which is part of a decades-long process being implemented toward total control. And it took a silver-tongued promoter of 'Change in America' to effect a smooth transition, not of US foreign policy (as we've seen), but of the series of mouthpieces in the White House - Mr. Obama, who is now ensconced with global banksters snugged round the fancy, historical Resolute desk in the Oval Office.

Well, gotta motor for now so I'm posting Israel's national chart from May 14, 1948 (details from historical record.) Around the edges I've penned US planetary placements which have many contacts to Israel's natal planets such as US natal Mercury/Pluto opposition at Israel's MC/IC axis. The chart can be later discussed here if anyone is interested or has comments to offer; Israel's major midpoints are included if they conjoin a planet.

You'll note the Fist of God pattern between the Pluto/NN square at the pattern's base to apex Jupiter Rx in Sagittarius, its own sign, which gives inspiration and enthusiasm but which can lead to zealotry within one's ideology.

Indications from the midpoint picture between Pluto, NN, and Jupiter are noted bottom left with the nation's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (4N) bottom right; Pre-Natal Eclipse info is from Brady's Predictive Astrology.

Please click image to enlarge.

Progressing this chart to today's date gives a '12Sag' Ascendant which conjoins US natal ASC (Sibly chart) and is where Pluto and Chiron's Great Conjunction of December 30, 1999 occurred. Its Sabian Symbol is, I believe, most telling for the New Millennium's 'New World Order' agenda of globalists everywhere:

"A Flag Turned into an Eagle That Crows."

In his book An Astrological Mandala, Dane Rudhyar gives this degree the following Keynote: "The spiritualization and promotion of great symbols of a New Age by minds sensitive to its precursory manifestations."

'New Age' indeed.

Muse against the babylon system of pop culture

Seeing mega-rock band Muse on TV a few times had not fully alerted me to the fact that they sing against the mindless babylon system of pop culture and the thought control of the New World Order. Yet how they got where they are in the music industry eludes me unless they sang less political lyrics in their early days, sold a bunch of records, and later brought out their opposition to global elite machinations. Perhaps a more democratic internet marketing helped their rise in popularity before the bigwigs caught on to their intentions.

"Take the red pill"! they tell their fans which could be similar to the red pill my friends and I took years ago while living in DC during the horrendous Nixon regime. Well, hopefully the band's music will aid new generations in learning to resist the NWO platform before purchasing their next Gaga album. You've noticed her hair-over-one-eye Illuminati shout-out, right? And Madonna before her? Their satanic themes are impossible to miss. But they do make mega-millions for record execs and their backers.

Well, be that as it may, now that I know what Muse is up to, this former child of rock music is all for it so posting one of their videos on Stars Over Washington seems quite the order of the day!


Update a few minutes later: here's a video just discovered where young people show they're awake to the Clinton-Bush-Obama trio of global elitists who do not care about poor people or the working class of America (which is not to give Poppy NWO Bush or those before him a free pass by any means!)

Watch the lady host's reaction as someone in her earpiece yells at her to interrupt the bit of truth erupting on-air!

A 'hidden square' in America's Scorpio Rising chart

If one uses the Scorpio Rising chart for America (2:21 pm - or 2:22 pm - LMT July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA) as a natal chart or as a special interest chart - in this case, for Scorpionic stuff such as surveillance, spying agencies, Big Business, the occult, becoming an initiate or an adept, etc - one discovers a mysteriously named 'hidden square' (256 degrees) which is not necessarily visible or prominent in other versions of our US natal chart.

You'll find that the interpretation for what may be termed a 'hidden square' is quoted for you in the post from Rob Pelletier's excellent book Planets in Aspect, a must for any astrologer's or novice's library. (Well, we're all mere novices of the Great Mathematician, are we not?)

Being in the square (90 degr) family of aspects (angular relationships between planets and/or points) the 'hidden square' also describes the typical internal conflicts of the square aspect, internal blockages on the mental or psychological plane. Squares form due to essential quests.

Of course, others may block us, obstacles may appear along the path, but solutions may be found within. For more than likely, an unconscious 'blind spot' will trip us up more quickly than anything that anyone can do to block us. And we must first deceive ourselves before others may do so.

So if you would, please click to read Mr. Pelletier's analysis of this particular planetary square, and if you determine that it doesn't describe we-the-people more closely than I wish it did, please leave a comment here to let me know about it. Some of its traits or facets seem eerily prevalent in the New Millennium.

My feeling is that we Americans carry our Revolutionary past around on our backs like a snail shell! We even try to get other countries to follow our example and adopt our form of government (thereby missing several points that a common sense approach would avoid entirely particularly since we-the-people are confused about which form we actually have anymore. We had a Republic but haven't kept it, and we're barely qualified to call ourselves a democracy. In fact, other people laugh at us when we do. This is bad.)

Yes, change in America (and in the world) is necessary, all right. But ruling upper-crusters seem to have a very different idea from what the people think is just and good for their own nation and lives. The plutocrats are decidedly obsessive about their plans, too. Obsession is another face of Pluto, of course, the secret hand sniveling and lurking behind the scenes of Power.

Be advised: your silence on the 'hidden square' matter shall be construed as willing acquiescence!

So check out the post above and weigh in, if you may. Perhaps you'll agree that much of America's collective psyche is described to a T - and it contains advice we'd do well to heed if only we would. First, on a personal level which eventually affects the world on the collective level. Well, just think about it.

Note: the post you're reading now counts as my Monday entry for SO'W since I'm taking a bus man's holiday tomorrow...or is a Sabbatical? ;p

Full Moon 1Pis25 conj Chiron Aug 24, 2010

Since I'm now involved in writing a longer-than-usual article these days, my blogging time has been sporadic. But not to fret! For the next lunation is covered by Julie Demboski - Tuesday August 24's Full Moon in early Pisces is detailed in her excellent Down the Rabbithole offering.

As Julie mentions, it won't be a 'rabbithole' for everyone - there are caveats, after all, even with Mercury Rx. Yet everyone has Pisces in their charts somewhere, planet or no, so I fully recommend to you Julie's insightful assessment of the August Full Moon in Pisces which is the culmination or fulfillment phase of the New Moon 17Leo25 of August 9, 2010.

Meet Me in September?

Actually, I just posted something on the New Moon of September 8, 2010 which happens to occur on the afternoon of the Jewish New Year, if you're interested. This New Moon culminates with a Full Moon on September 23, just in time for Autumn Equinox 2010, as Sun and Moon join the already-titanic Cardinal T-Square with apex Pluto, along with Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn.

The Full Moon at Cardinal Points makes this one a world event of some proportion for big events tend to manifest or be triggered on the Cardinal Axis (00Ari/Lib-00Can/Cap; here we have Sun 00Lib15 opposing Moon 00Ari15 - the MC/IC axis in America's natal chart, if you use the 'Sibly' version for July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA.) Sun/Moon = Pluto: critical time of development, which also applies to Iran's nuclear activities since this is thought by the West to be a critical time in its development, and Pluto = nuclear or atomic power. (Hopefully, Israel won't bomb Iran. Please, God. What a self-destructive move that would be for the entire planet.)

There's a YOD (turning point; crisis; special task; Finger of God) in the Sep 23, 2010 Full Moon chart, too: Mars/NN = MC: teamwork; partnership values gain importance. Mars/NN is 'pointing' toward US natal Uranus 8Gem55 as well, so we have what may entail a predicament:

Mars/NN = n Uranus: sudden events that affect a lot of people; stirring people up; organizing others (Tyl); sudden disruptions during meetings (Munkasey.)

But back to August 24's Full Moon 1Pis25:

Now everyone knows that the Virgo/Pisces axis is the victim/savior axis in Astrology. And everyone is experiencing, or is aware of, the loss and despair so prevalent in the world today. So perhaps the two Sun Virg/Moon Pisc Images for Integration may apply to the Tuesday August 24 Full Moon. If you listen to or read the news this coming week, you may discover something 'in the air' that sounds something like either one of these:

'The scientist has a dream and then, in his sacred laboratory, puts the finishing touches on his magnum opus...A peasant rests in the wheat field, and shares his bread, cheese, wine, and wisdom with the hungry labourers.'

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Well, Happy Pisces Full Moon everybody - don't let the myriad of details available just now swamp or confuse you! And if you could pass some wisdom around, the planet could surely use a huge helping of it.

Virgo New Moon for Rosh Hashannah Sep 8, 2010

Do you know there's more to Rosh Hashanah than being New Years Day in the Jewish calendar?

Beginning at sundown on September 8, 2010, this year's 48-hour festivities are marked by a New Moon 15Vir41 in 11th house of *Israel's 1948 natal chart (ASC 23Lib01 with chart-ruler Venus 4Can48 in 9th house and conjunct US n Venus and Jupiter; Israel's mavericky n Jupiter 27Sag39 Rx in 3rd house.) The New Moon trines natal Sun 23Tau40 (n 8th house) and is near Israel's natal Saturn/Neptune midpoint 13Vir30. It perfects in Jerusalem at 1:29:45 pm EEDT, and in Washington DC at 6:29:45 am EDT (1st house; ASC 12Vir06.)

(Note: the above ASC for Israel is a correction made 9.3.10; it doesn't affect the rest of this post. jc)

Both locations, indeed the entire world, have the Cardinal T-Square's midpoint pictures: Jupiter/Saturn - Pluto, and Saturn/Uranus = Pluto. The combination of Saturn and Uranus are associated with the Middle East - Israel and Palestine in particular.

Paraphrasing Michael Munkasey in his book on midpoints, Saturn/Uranus in Politics and Business:

counter-revolutionary rule; balancing conservatives with progressives; restrictions on personal contacts due to situations which are beyond an enterprise's jurisdiction (Gaza! jc); control of access to political dissidents; sudden indifference by people to traditional mores or laws.

And of course, transiting Saturn and Uranus are in their Full Moon phase these days being in and out of opposition to one another. This is the culmination of their Great Conjunction/s all through 1988 so the year's issues return to the table:

1. February 13 @ 29Sag55;
2. June 26 @ 28Sag47:
3. Oct 18 @ October 18 @ 27Sag49.

You'll remember that tr Pluto 'came through' those degrees during the Bush presidency and the world has experienced:

1988's Saturn/Uranus = tr Pluto: rebellion against one's lot in life; upheaval to protect assets; tremendous fear of loss; concealing changes to activities; termination of extreme practices that hinder progress; drastic changes to a previously liberal atmosphere; rigid inflexibility replaces adaptation; acts of violence and brutality; a desire to overcome difficult situations through extraordinary effort; harm through force majeure; war. (Tyl; Munkasey; Ebertin.)

Setting the New Moon chart for Jerusalem, the New Moon of Sep 8, 2010 falls in 9th house of Foreign Travels which may perhaps relate to the visit of Palestinian and Israeli leaders to the White House during the first week of September 2010, a dark of the Moon period when shady things may occur out of sight. Perhaps the light of the Full Moon two weeks later will bring Israeli-Palestinian revelations or a 'truce' signing, if these ancient rivals remember how in their age-old round of vengeance and intolerance. (Israel's natal Chiron is in Scorpio which indicates a need to 'forgive the unforgivable' - what are the chances?)

Plus, with the New Moon's Mercury 6Vir51 retrograde, any agreement that may be signed during The Scribe's Rx period won't have much hope of amounting to anything lasting on the path to peace. Or at the least, fine print must be thoroughly examined and all the Ts and Is must be dotted. Details can trip anyone up during Mercury Rx periods.

Yet Mercury Rx may also relate to Israel, Palestine, and the US 'trying again' to establish an agreement. And Sept 8's New Moon Mercury conjoins President Obama's natal Pluto, a time when information, ideas, plans, and activities involve gaining more power, and valuable info is garnered or controlled; gathering finance and investment information is also on the president's agenda with this ongoing transit.

But peace in Palestine, too?

Well, as Gandhi said, "There is no path to peace. Peace is the path." (My emphasis.)

If only the global power elite neocons and Zionists who have Other Ideas for establishing a 'capital of the world' in Jerusalem would get over their tiresome obsessions and park their arrogant carcasses out of decent people's way.

You know, VP Joe Biden has stated on more than one occasion that he's a decided Zionist but you won't see the YouTube video I posted in 2009 by clicking. It has been 'removed' for 'violation of terms of use' - or by 'sensitive' government censors, imho. But click anyway, to read an insightful article, Demystifying Zionism.


*The State of Israel was created May 14, 1948 4:00 pm EET Tel Aviv, Israel (historical record); Sun 23Tau40 in 8th h and Moon 4Leo21 in 10th h - a proud and regal combination; ASC 23Lib03 = Jupiter/Saturn: cycles of expansion or contraction; new ways of dealing with relationships; an inconstant or insecure attitude regarding other persons.

Natal MC 25Can02 conjoins US natal Mercury Rx so Israel's n IC conjoins US n Pluto; n MC = Venus/Saturn: reserve; jealousy; inhibited desires; irritability; dissatisfaction with others; feeling unimportant; never successful enough.

Is the "Make Home Affordable" program a scam?

Hi Ho Silver, the Bankster Gang rides again!

Chase Home Finance needed better PR for its brand and wanted a bunch more empty houses on its ledgers so it set up the Make Home Affordable program which seems to be a grand stalling tactic where homes are foreclosed on no matter how many times you send in the papers and documentation they ask for - they can't seem to hold on to the boogers.

Click to read one man's conclusions as he journeyed into mortgage madness.

Wonder if the sheriff, President Obama, knows about this?

Well, we know that watery Neptune's fraudulent streak still affects US natal Moon (the people) in Aquarius so deception and home losses continue, with more floods on the way, too. Wonder how Tennessee is doing since its 1000-year flooding in May 2010?

Spooky for markets? The Hindenburg Omen

The fabled Hindenburg Omen is a stock market crash indicator that some say is in play now and may time a collapse by the end of 2010.

A few days ago I posted on market crash predictions with a Gerald Celente video - perhaps you viewed it. Mr. Celente has a good track record for market predictions and he's saying 'crash by the end of the year', etc.

In my post, I list the current Solar Eclipse Series we're now in since July 11, 2010, the disturbing 29th-degree Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010, followed by the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse at critical degree as a shaky time period for financials. All fall into the 2/8 money axis for Washington DC.

Here's more info from Mr. Hindenburg Omen himself Jim Miekka who says, Exit the market. Seems there are other trends besides the 'Hindenburg trigger' that should be taken into account other than the H Omen which was triggered in mid-August (last week.)

Yet going around saying such things is often a self-fulfilling prophecy!

Besides, not all Hindenburg Omens lead to crashes but crashes tend to have H Omens foreshadowing them. Plus, speaking of old Paul von Hindenburg, in May 2007 I posted on the actual Hindenburg Disaster of May 6, 1937 because it was the 70th anniversary of the horrendous event. Just so you know: Nazi propaganda was involved.

Historical records give us the exact time of the disaster so you may find its horoscope of interest, plus, there's a link to a video of the disaster itself in the post if you've never seen or heard this particular slice of history which had to have been the 9/11 of its day. And glory be! The airship's explosion into oblivion was caught on film so it was viewed over and over and over just like the attacks of 9/11 - seared into the collective's consciousness.

The Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Series of the Hindenburg Disaster is the 11 North: sudden change of groups with which one mixes either through travel or through ideas; separation implied, but with successful outcomes (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

11N last manifested on January 26, 2009, 6 days into the Obama presidency, so I nicknamed it the New President Eclipse for what I presume are overly obvious reasons.

Will US billionaire donors aid Americans, too?

Excerpt: Two weeks ago, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and 40 other billionaires pledged to donate at least half of their fortunes to philanthropy, either while still alive or after death. Is America a country so blessed with affluence that it can afford to give away billions, just like that?

Oh yes, I've wanted to post something about this since it was announced because if Mr. Gates and Mr. Buffett and pals want to aid someone, why not struggling Americans? Didn't much of their fortunes generate from US shores, at least originally? The Land of Opportunity needs a little help from her friends, if she can only find them. Bill?

For a view from abroad on the topic, here's the Der Speigel article I snagged the above excerpt from which discusses the American Middle Class, now perilously at the top of the endangered species list, and the generosity of US philanthropists.

America's demise is simply part of the power elite/world crime syndicate's stealthy globalization agenda. We see it now 2+ years after the worst financial collapse since the 1930s as big banks hoard and squirrel away billions in profits while US jobs that were 'outsourced' over the last decades are never to be applied for again.

Perhaps Mr. Gates can donate some mega moola to protect Microsoft jobs from the axe next time, hmm?

And you know, it enraged me years ago when it was revealed that phone service jobs sent to other countries meant that the private account information of US citizens were then available for viewing (or whatever) by foreign workers and other entities who might wish to nose into our private business in an unsavory fashion. This is precisely the kind of foreign economic intrigue that President Andrew Jackson fought against though its exact form was unimagined in his day, of course.

Say what you will about Jackson (and my Cherokee heritage will be right there with ya), he knew what dangers lurked in the merging of US interests with who-knows-whom and the extreme stupidity (if you care about US sovereignty) of America intra-banking with nations which we might one day wage war
against. A narrow view perhaps, but a salient point nonetheless.

Nowadays, our globalist-minded politicians act like everything is hunky dory, we just need to 'prop up' the capitalist system and keep it creaking along. Obviously, and by all accounts, there's still big money to be made by following such a shakey course. Not for America's Middle Class, but for mysterious someones.

Meanwhile, astrologers know that Pluto's transit through Capricorn will eventually lead to a Pluto Return for America which, due to Pluto's 248-year orbit, naturally will be the first time in US history - and to the destruction and transformation of Capricorn institutions such as business systems, law, government, and banking.

Even America's history (Cap/Saturn) is ripe for a major rewrite by
He of the Invisible Helmet

Now 2022 brings us a Pluto Return for the US if our nation remains intact by the time the global power elite and world banking cartel get done fleecing us in the 12 years hence.

Here is a brief astro-snapshot of 2022's US Pluto Return/s (n Pluto 27Cap33 Rx - '28Cap' = "A Large Aviary") which, due to Pluto's retrogradation, is a three-fer:

1. Feb 20, 2022; Hour of Jupiter; Mercury/Mars = Pluto criticism with a pasion; knowing just what's wring with the world; involved in big arguments;

2. July 11, 2022; Hour of Mars; Mercury/Saturn = Mars: turning drive into tyranny; risking everything to make one's point; no compromise; Saturn/NN = Jupiter: rebellion; freeing oneself from stress; the generation gap;

3. December 28, 2022: Hour of Mercury; Moon/Pluto = Saturn: constraint; depression; pressure to regroup forces and plan anew; inclination to feelings of loss; Venus/Neptune = Saturn: a new look at realism is needed; fear of losing the dream; Sun/Mars = Neptune: difficulty concentrating; feeling off track; possible loss of vitality.

(All midpoint pictures from th eexcellent Noel Tyl; all, any, or none may apply and are subject to transits and progressions.)

Ah, yes: fear of losing The American Dream of Prosperity - which now seems to be morphing into The Chinese Dream. But maybe it will morph yet again by 2022.


A further note on the global elite take-over: it's being reported today that even Fidel Castro is interested in such plans being implemented by the shadowy Bilderberg Group!

Analysis: the handwriting of Barack Obama

Here's an interesting piece which analyzes the handwriting of President Obama.

One of the handwriting samples seems to be missing from the page (in my browser) yet I'm passing it on for those who wish to delve more deeply into the personality of Barack Obama bwo Graphology.

Actually, I have some info on an analysis of the handwriting of Benjamin Franklin which I should prbably post @ some point. Yes?

Video: How can America keep financing the deficit?

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts's articles have been favored on this blog for a while now. Here he discusses the purposeful destruction of America which I've been fussing about on this and other blogs for years. My typing finger is fairly falling off from all my fussing...but honestly, if we-the-people would realize en masse the power we have in numbers and the raging class warfare which has so far successfully kept us divided and conquered ('Rs vs Ds' and other political fairytales), we could take back a government that's supposed to be quite different and people-based than the monster it has become under neocon-Zionist corporatism.

Of course, we'd be taking back a bankrupt government but I'd rather America start from scratch than have what Dr. Roberts agrees is a bunch of 'desperate lunatics' continuing to man the helm as they crash our Swiss cheese ship of state.

So if you're marveling at how Washington and the Fed can continue financing the trillion-dollar-plus deficit, watch this video then click here to view the next 2 videos (about 17 minutes' worth between them.)

Celente predicts market crash by end of year (video)

Gerald Celente has been correct a bunch of times about our financial prospects. Here he's predicting a possible stock market crash by the end of 2010. This post's title should read, audio. Pardon.

Then does Astrology, also a system of cycles as in the realm of finances, concur?

Right now we're 'between' two Solar Eclipses, both of which indicate financial stress and/or weakness. July 11, 2010's eclipse @ 19Can24 conjoins difficult Fixed Star Castor and is in the 8th house (Washington DC.) Round up to '20Can' and we have a critical or crisis degree as our economy continues its struggles. I agree with Mr. Celente's interesting, practical views on how the US should again become a nation of artisans, tradesmen, merchants to counteract the way we've become: clerks, shelf stockers, and short order cooks.

On January 4, 2011 another critical-degreed Solar Eclipse @ 13Cap39 falls in the other money house, the 2nd (in DC) in the 13 North Series: energy concerns large, ambitious group projects which will require a separation from an existing bond; initially events bring separation, then a joint achievement. (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.) This eclipse opposes US natal Sun in Cancer which focuses its energies on the President.

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles the January 2011 eclipse as: The Balance of Power. She notes that the eclipse is in the degree of Fixed Star Manubrium: flaring heat. Will markets heat up only to explode with a boom that affects world markets?

(This eclipse may also be a war indicator but that's out of the scope of this post.)

If markets crash, perhaps the clincher that ties the bow will be the Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010 at a critical 29th degree: 29Gem21, in 8th house for Washington DC, and near World Point 00Can00. This places Sun in 2nd house, of course, which highlights again the 2/8 money-valuations axis. With the Lunar Eclipse in the last degree of Gemini, disruptions and delays concerning communications, travel, young people, trade and commerce are possible since the Lord of the Eclipse, Mercury 26Sag16 is retrograde in 2nd house.

Perhaps there will be another mysterious who-done-it? electronic run on US banks similar to the so far unexplained one the NYSE experienced in Sept 2008.

Then in the Lunar Eclipse's 4th house of Domestic Scene are Neptune and Chiron both sitting upon US natal Moon (26 - 28 AQ) so wounding and fraud to the people! and home losses continue as will the effects of April's BP-Gulf Oil Gusher whose oil is reported today to have migrated along the ocean floor much farther east than formerly known or disclosed...toward Florida.

So! Gerald Celente and I are quite a depressing pair, aren't we? Difference is, he knows whereof he speaks when it comes to markets and gold runs. I'm only reading charts and hoping for the best to miraculously come out of a bad eclipse season!

Yes, in many ways, 2011 is a pivotal year of the last few pivotal years. The public's confidence may have wavered itself out of existence as someone's 'shock doctrine' has been practiced upon the American people (and others) and I think President Obama's Goldman-Sachs Cabinet of advisors have steered him wrong when it comes to getting the US out of the financial ditch.

For they've further instituted a corrupt financial system that needs dismantling more than it needs 'rescuing'...all of which makes one wonder: did the power elite plan for the US economy to be ditched all along?


Please note: this eclipse analysis is a general one for Washington DC; any personal results for you and yours must be gleaned through the eclipse's relationship to your own chart bwo contacts with natal planets, houses, and aspects. Don't let free floating anxiety get ya! And if, like me, you've lost all confidence in Washington DC's interest in working honestly on behalf of the American people, please retain your confidence in America's first principles and have faith in we-the-people of good heart.

Which may be my polite, southern way of saying, Washington Politicians S*ck.

Is Congress chipping away at childrens' CHIP?

When initial noises are being made on Capitol Hill, we know they're running an issue up the flag pole to see if anyone salutes. Actually, they want to see if anyone in the public even notices.

Catfood Commission vs Social Security benefits

Today I am working on an America-infused article for Julie Demboski's Eclipse e-zine so I don't expect to be posting today beyond this heads-up which concerns a post of mine you may have missed.

If you're in the mood for 1930s to 2010 financials mixed with a smidgen of Astrology and embedded within a classic film try:

Money in the Land of Oz.

And check out a previous post on this blog which includes a link to Alan Grayson's petition to Congress to protect Social Security against Alan Simpson's descriptively labeled 'Catfood Commission'. You might wish to watch the video of FDR signing the 1935 SS Act and making a few remarks on the topic as well.

Millions of Americans were starving in the 1920s and 1930s and tiny little SS checks made a big difference for them. If Simpson and his GOP comrades have their way, millions in the US will be starving again while our chaos-creating social tinkerers live high on the public dollar with abundant corporate enabling.

Vote in November, Send a Message: keep your greedy claws off my SS!

And please remember under whose watch the engineered financial collapse we now 'enjoy' fermented and blew up so that global-minded 'austerity cuts' politicians (Ds and Rs) in the US don't have to wait for Judgment Day to receive payoff for their craven actions against their fellow man and woman. For it's women who live longer - so obviously it is they will be the ones to suffer in larger numbers.

Vote in November and beware the closed-door planners of the Catfood Commission!

FDR signs SS Act Aug 14, 1935 (video)

Here is President Franklin Roosevelt signing into law the Social Security Act of 1935 and making a few remarks afterwards.

The bill signing of August 14, 1935 makes today SS's 75th anniversary, so Happy Birthday and may you enjoy many more returns, SS. As a small business owner in the US, I've paid 100% of my FICA taxes into the SS fund for decades so naturally I remain partial to this social 'safety net' program. Really now, what would Americans have done without it?

The bill was signed under the auspices of a separating Sun/Jupiter square which is an aspect of a 'wheeler-dealer' who tends to promise more than can be delivered. And unfortunately for the American populace, through recent years the program has been more often used as a political football for manipulating the public than it's been adequately shored up (though there are those who would disagree) and honored.

On Aug 14, 1935, asteroid Ceres (security issues) @ 10Vir15 was in opposition to US natal Ceres in Pisces (which is conjoined with the US natal Pluto/Chiron midpoint, a duo of plutocracy. ) We don't have to stretch very far to recall the instructive warning of US Senator from Arizona, Barry Goldwater, which touches on this and related monetary and plutocratic matters:

"A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away."

And Washington has been trying to dismantle SS for years and mislabeling it an 'entitlement program' - how can it be when its funds are paid in by employers and their employees (or the self-employed like me) who work for the incomes the tax is lifted from by law?

Craziness! Old King Midas is a possessive and greedy old soul, isn't he? Meanwhile, Old King Cole is merry and musical! Both are Jupiter-Saturn figures.

A noon chart for Senator Goldwater (Jan 1, 1909, Phoenix, AZ) shows even without a correct birth time a certain midpoint picture which is now echoed in the collective by the current Jupiter/Saturn opposition squaring Pluto in Capricorn, part of the ongoing and massive Cardinal T-Square pattern the world is groaning under on many levels.

In Politics, Michael Munkasey gives the Jupiter-Saturn combo as 'justice systems at breaking point; processes concerning checks and balances; religious or social orders; leniency and harshness vie within the overall social and economic systems'.

The last reminds me of the current debate over ridding the US government of so-called entitlement programs. Guess the haunting specter of millions of elderly Americans joining others living on US streets doesn't bother proponents of 'austerity cuts' overly much.

Well, Jupiter and Saturn are the societal planets, as you know, and relate through their respective principles of expansion-restriction to such things as: markets, trade deficits, commerce, other financial concerns, ambitions, legal or religious oppression, and political policies and programs. And stealthy Pluto is, among other descriptions, the Dragon guarding the riches.

Therefore, it's the same word picture for Goldwater's natal, and the August 2010 transiting, Jupiter/Saturn = Pluto: immense efforts; restrictions; violent changes; separation; tremendous perseverance; dramatic thrust of self; control of the situation; major situational changes; having a total reversal of previous plans; intense business activity; transformation of personal ideas about the future into today's reality.

(Ebertin; Tyl; Munkasey; all, any, or none may apply and are subject to transits and progressions.)

Looks like another lightening-laced thunderstorm is on the way here in Georgia, so let's close with the 'Image for Integration' for Barry Goldwater's natal Sun Cap-Moon Taurus blend...

A wealthy grandfather opens a savings account for his granddaughter on her day of birth; she later becomes a famous artist, inherits a fortune and makes her own. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Well! Sounds okay for younger generations who may wish SS to be privatized for them (though who in their right minds would trust Wall Streeters to invest retirement monies for them is more than I can figure out - and not to mark 'em up and send 'em on, when they do.)

But we can't all have 'wealthy grandfathers' to pass down fortunes to us, can we? Maybe that's one of the many reasons most people need a program like Social Security to ease the burdens of a modest old age.


8.15.10: I am adding an exerpt from a forwarded email alert from yesterday (thanks, Alex!) from Alan Grayson concerning a petition to stop Congress from meddling with, cutting, and ruining Social Security - they're using closed door meetings to map out the misery:


'Today marks the 75th anniversary of Social Security. Without it, many of our seniors would be so poor that they'd have to eat cat food just to survive.

That's why many are calling the Deficit Commission, run by extremist right-winger Alan Simpson, the "Catfood Commission." It's the culmination of decades of plotting by right-wingers to destroy Social Security.

As you read this email, the Catfood Commission is plotting behind closed doors to find a way to force Social Security cuts on the American people. In a few months, when they come out with their cruel "recommendations," you're going to hear all over the media that we have to destroy Social Security in order to save it.

Where have I heard that before?

We've got to stop them. If enough of us speak out against Social Security cuts now, then people like me, fighting to protect Social Security, can show the media where We, The People stand on this.

That's why I've started a petition telling Congress and the President, "Don't Steal My Social Security." It tells every Federal official with a say on this that if they vote to cut Social Security, then they're going to have to find another line of work. You know that extension in unemployment benefits that we just passed? That will be for them.

Sign the petition now, and pass it along to your friends.

Together, we can send a message that if you try to steal my Social Security, then your security is gone, forever.'

Dr David Kelly was on an assassination "hit-list"

Calls for a full inquest have grown louder now that intimations that UN weapons expert Dr. David Kelly's name was 3rd or 4th on an assassination hit-list.

Here's what I posted about the topic on July 2, 2010 in case you'd like to read more on this heinous, cowardly murder.

And some brief astro-details concerning Kelly's natal chart and his Lunar Return that occurred just after his death may be of interest to you as well.

Wonder if honest investigators (by which I mean, Not the Hutton Inquiry, aka, the Hutton Cover-up) have tried the usual adage when probing mysterious criminals: follow the money...? Surely so. And there are many good reasons for considering who profited politically from Dr. Kelly's death which ended an expert's criticism of the UK (and thus, US) governments for invading Iraq with its glaring lack of WMDs.

Now just who could that be? Who do we know? And why would we expect Lord Hutton not to give them (and possibly himself in the process) cover for the lies and deceit it took to prosecute illegal war?

Wouldn't it be cool if WikiLeaks got clued in by someone close to the investigation and then came out with pertinent documents concerning Dr. David Kelly's assassination? That would be very cool as long as it doesn't jinx anything which may come out during a new inquiry.

Power Over Nations: the International Banking Cartel

Damon Vrabel has an informative piece on the Fed, the global economy, and the International Banking Cartel which, he asserts, really exists. A list of their names by country is included in his Monopoly Money and the International Banking Cartel, a group of un-elected bigwigs now wielding 'power over nations' and to which we must Just Say No.

No wonder it's common to use secretive Pluto as a signifier for these obscenely wealthy manipulators when working with mundane charts, right?

And if we add Chiron to Pluto, we get disenfranchisement, oppression, class warfare, slavery, communism, statism, corporatism (also shown by asteroid Cupido: the Family, the Syndicate), capitalism, the resultant fascism, bolshevikism (is there such a word? workerism?), collectivism, internationalism, nationalism, primal violence, racism, ethnic 'cleansing', genderism, most other -isms, and other attitudes and tactics which harm or make people feel unheeded and/or threatened including one we're seeing more and more of: population control (the weeding out of the many to benefit the few.)

We might have to hand it to them though because of how masterful they've been through the years at using capitalism's 'American Dream' and 'you too can work your way to riches' tenets to spur workers on - yet it's being used against the people now that it turns out that what they really mean is, We got ours (much of which is actually yours or earned by your sweat) and now that the chips are down, you're on your own, chumps.

PS: We of the IBC have all the world's money and precious resources tucked away where you'll never find them. So...See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya.

NYC mosque near Ground Zero? Obama cites Golden Rule

Here at the beginning of Ramadan 2010, President Obama has handily delivered a speech concerning religion and the gracious plenty of it we've always had available here in America.

Lots of judging of others, regretfully, yet lots of houses of worship have been liberally sprinkled about the place since our nation's toddling days and before.

And you know that I wholeheartedly agree that 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you' is a grand concept that would work in the world's favor if only humankind would seriously follow it (faith is contagious!), for the endless cycle of revenge the globe is now entranced by and spiraling into would switch directions in a flash if everyone caught that particular drift on a core level and became inspired to seek life, not death.

To paraphrase Gandhi, There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.

If any of this irks you on some level, then you may as well keep reading. Because nothing I can say now will dissuade you from irksomeness, plus, you're almost done...

This next bit rhymes. And as such, it runs the risk of permanently offending both readers of this blog so I'll provide only a link to a Presidential verse in case you're feeling somewhat daring this evening...and yes, I know that political cat limericks may be ruffling to one's political sensibilities especially for those who wear their allegiances on their sleeves.

America now pitifully passe in Europe

In the debit column of international banksters, domestic and foreign speculators, fraudsters, and crooked politicians who justify selling out our nation on the basis of a 'higher plan' for global domination, America is now spoken of, if she is at all, with pity in Europe.

Part of the way the US is being 'seen' now in the world is through having transiting Saturn in US natal *10th house (larger world; the world stage; public status) with a 3-fer Saturn Return on the way 2010 into 2011. Now the transit is not an automatic planetary recipe for disaster. But it is if Saturnian lessons of responsibility, accountability, maturity, prudence, and moderation have not been heeded when they ought to have been.

So Thanks, Washington. Suck It, Wall Street. More Stimulus, President Obama.


*That's '10th house' if you use America's 'Sibly' chart for July 4, 1776 @ 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA.

Obama on Climate Change (April 3, 2006)

"All across the world, in every kind of environment and region known to man, increasingly dangerous weather patterns and devastating storms are abruptly putting an end to the long-running debate over whether or not climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here, and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster."

- Barack Obama, speech, Apr 3, 2006

If only the Republican Party hadn't traded in its traditional conservationism for the goals of a neocon-Zionist permanent war economy and global cop status for the US to the point where US tax monies are not for the people's use but for extravagant spending on militaristic colonialism and conquest.


F'only now-President Obama knew now what he read from the script then.

US economy to brink thanks to Fed, Wanted: armed and paranoid

Well, this beats all. (Watch this video, if you dare.)

It inspires me to repeat, Audit the Fed.

And Danny Schechter is right: we need jailouts for Wall Street, not bailouts.

That was the American taxpayers' money (what little of it wasn't mirage on paper) that they 'shipped off' to Europe and parts unknown after laundering the dirty parts through New York. Plunder and fraud. That's how The Octopus does b'ness. They are morally bankrupt. Their counterparts in Washington are no better - one passes the baton to the next and the good ole boys promote their brethren while protecting one another's sins so that no one's freedom of action is restricted when it's their turn to step over bounds and chip another chunk of principle from America's freedom documents.

Follow script. Push agenda. Above all.

Therefore, our elusive 'confidence' in the stock market and the US financial system will never be regained as long as all our henhouses are being left to the ravenous foxes. My secret suspicion is that there are certain sorts of things the power elite want - ex: for a certain segment or two of society to be armed and paranoid. They want a...clash. Everyone feels it in the air, compliments of the Cardinal T-Square and Grand Cross patterns forming with various planetary combinations of squares (obstacles; blockages) and oppositions (relationships; awareness) until about 2014.

Talk about arghh.

So what we have monkeying with our lives are these bossy robotic freaks, comporting themselves as the Big Boys' operatives - they play to win, you betcha. Members are recruited, usually through the education system so they catch them young, energetic, and hungry to make something of themselves, to get somewhere in the world. Talents are accessed and tested and recruits are used if doing so is profitable in some way...a variation on worldly ambition.

Perhaps I should say little more on the topic for now yet I should inform you that this is written for your entertainment. Or, consideration, if you wish.

Now please tell me: is this earth a habitat for humanity or is it not? Are we the planet's stewards or not? Since balances on many levels are changing, can we pull together (knowing that there's strength in numbers) rather than apart?

Will it be arms around the planet? Or fractured into non-existence?

Environmental degradation now occurs the globe over. Resource plundering has reached new highs (lows) perpetrated solely for the further profiting and market-cornering of industrialists and speculators who have plenty already. Refugees are being strong-armed and created each and every day, forced from their inherited lands to languish and roam; children are bullied into military and/or other types of cruel service.

Meanwhile, our Earth needs attention and balm. Most of mankind longs for a return to normalcy and kindness. If we can't take good care of our home and garden and make our base safer for our children's sakes, what else will matter when Earth's abundance is dried up and blown away?

So much to lose! And if we allow it to happen, we may all in turn become a...

It's Perseid meteor time! August 12 and 13, 2010

Avoid the city lights: it's time to look toward the starry heavens!

Space Weather News for August 12, 2010

PERSEID METEOR SHOWER: The annual Perseid meteor shower is underway. Earth is passing through a wide stream of debris from Comet Swift-Tuttle, and each time a fleck of comet dust hits Earth's atmosphere--flash!--there is a meteor. Forecasters say the shower will peak on Thursday, August 12, and Friday, August 13.

You can see Perseids flitting across the sky at any time between about 10 pm on Thursday evening and sunrise on Friday morning. Observers who get away from city lights can expect to count dozens of meteors per hour, especially during the dark hours before dawn.

Tune into for full coverage of the shower, including a live meteor radar, a "fireball cam," updated meteor counts and pictures from around the world.

BONUS: If you go outside a little early on Thursday evening, around sunset, you'll see a beautiful gathering of planets in the sunset sky--Venus, Mars, Saturn and the crescent Moon. It's a nice way to start a meteor watch.

Sky maps may be found at SpaceWeather News.


Yes, the Perseids, plus, the line-up of planets with the Crescent Moon, will be a lovely sight to see, agreed. This Crescent Moon marks the beginning of Ramadan 2010, however, and the inclusion of 3 planets with this particular Crescent Moon (Ramadan starts with the sighting of the Lunar sliver, the symbol found on flags of the region) is significant this year.

But with Capulus and Algol (male and female rage) in the picture, two strong Fixed Stars associated with the Middle East, the energy this August may be more warrior-like than most people wish. So you may wish to read my post from August 2009 for more details on Perseus the Prince. Or, perhaps you wish to simply look toward the starry heavens tonight and enjoy!
