March on Washington 10.2.10 w/ Sagittarius rising

Rally Update Saturday Oct 2, 2010; original post begins here:

One Nation Working Together plans a March on Washington on Saturday, October 2, 2010 to Demand the Changes We Voted For.

Beginning at 12:00 noon edt at the Lincoln Memorial (quite a busy location of late), the disgruntled event continues until 4:00 pm. You'll find there are local events to participant in if you wish to click the link above. People who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 are feeling that their confidence may have been misplaced and their generosity bestowed where it didn't belong.

During the 2008 campaign, I blogged ad nauseum that Mr. Obama's natal Mars upon US natal Neptune (the 'rock star' connection) would keep the American public from seeing him as he really was, from discerning his true motivations because the action, energy, and desires of his natal Mars are veiled by our national Neptune. This worked great for putting one over and getting elected but the honeymoon period ended months ago as more US jobs and homes are being lost with transit Neptune and wounding Chiron still sitting upon US natal Moon (the people) and bringing us loss, fraud, deception, confusion, gas leaks, rig blowouts, and flooding.

The time for platitudes, slogans, and cliches has ended.

With 7Sag26 rising (and bringing up US natal ASC 12Sag) at noon Oct 2, 2010 at the Lincoln Memorial (38N53:22 77W03:02), Jupiter 26Pis55 Rx is chart-ruler but makes no applying aspects (except to Ic 23Pis42.) Of course, tr Uranus 28Pis10 Rx is in tow and opposes the March on Washington's Mercury 28Vir18, planet of speeches, oration, and reporters. This makes Jupiter's sign and house placement (4th) prominent yet any improvements which may acrue from the March will be delayed (chart-ruler retrograde.)

Jupiter's ongoing team-up with progressive Uranus is at the base of October 2's March with the duo's 'new ideas' and 'lucky breaks' flavor. Yet we've been suffering from an abundance of fraudulent schemes and deceptions from the Jupiter opposing US natal Neptune transit - in tandem with tr Neptune to US natal Moon in Aquarius.

There are 'plants' in the crowd (Eros, the piercing, conjunct Venus 12Sco38 and Mars 12Sco01) with agents masquerading as marchers - beware. Sun 9Lib21 (the leader) conjoins Fixed Star Vindemiatrix (loss of partner - loss of the public?), fresh from a meet-up with restrictive (Democrat) Saturn 7Lib57. The Sun applies to a sesqui-square with the Neptune/Chiron conj, an aspect of dynamic activity, but which represents two entwined squares (blockages; obstacles.) Quite a disjointed relationship between leader (BHO) and we-the-people (Neptune = US natal Moon with Oct 2's Moon 28Can37 inconjunct both = adjustments are needed, and pronto! This chart's 3rd quarter Sun/Moon phase = crisis in consciousness. Oct 2's Moon at noon also opposes US natal Pluto, planet of power and control; together they have a propaganda and publicity vibe.)

At noon, the Midheaven in DC 23Vir42 places US natal Neptune (and thus, Mr. Obama's natal Mars) at the top of the chart, the Aspiration-Goal Point. Neptune also signifies the masses and Virgo is the sign of work. We may extrapolate a descriptive midpoint picture: Mars/Neptune = Mc: discontent; feeling inferior; a lack of energy; hopelessness (faded Hope!); failures; a state of weakness or illness.

That Mr. Obama could gain the Oval Office with the help of Wall Street, play his role in the mummery that was Financial Collapse 2008 and the subsequent bank bailouts to wealthy culprits and robbers, then leave Main Street in the lurch has brought the president a March on Washington to protest what seems like his half-hearted efforts on the people's behalf. Or at best, the president's efforts may help matters in the long-term when it's short-term problems that leave the kids' tummies unfed and the bills unpaid.

What I find difficult to believe is that the intelligent Mr. Obama couldn't have seen our disaffection coming from the beginning since he knew the power elite script ahead of time! Is he himself left in the lurch now - in the middle - by those who pull the strings? Was a Democrat installed in the White House as a salve to the people's Bush-ruffled feathers while the over-arching agenda of the one-world-government types awaits fuller implementation by the next president, a Republican? Are US presidents only bull-horning cheerleaders - mouthpieces - who tout the power-behind-the-throne's platform of chaos meant to lead to totalitarianism?

(Next thing we know, the old ploy of monarchs starting a war to divert their unhappy subjects may play out once again before our eyes: that's the tactic Bush-Cheney used after their disputed installation into the White House by SCOTUS! The terms "illegitimate presidency" and "usurpers" were on many people's lips in 2001 - until the attacks of 9/11 and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq squelched them.)

As you know, Pluto 2Cap53 (about to conjoin tr North Node on Nov 9, 2010 with the Moon 3Cap36 @ 3:13 pm est, DC) has been focal planet of some difficult midpoint pictures of late even though the Cardinal T-Squares and Cross have separated. Now I won't type those pictures again but do want to mention a particular T-Square in play for October 2, 2010...the Mercury/Uranus pair indicates 'riots or rebellions which occur because info about goals are not well explained or defined' (Munkasey)...

Mercury/Uranus = Pluto: attracting sudden reverses or complications in life; a hasty realization of plans; over-strained or over-stimulated nerves; tremendous power for work, action, leadership; getting the biggest job done in a commanding way. (Ebertin; Tyl.)

And I don't mean to imply that a simple matter of 'miscommunication' is President Obama's problem here - I lean toward a belief that if he did divulge the truth of the larger global plan and the true condition of things, Washington would have mega- thousands of people marching upon it...enough to shut down The Swamp and start all over again. Plus, he has to follow the NWO's false-reality script or his presidency is aborted, and the pitchforks come out en masse. But that's me. Feel free to disagree.

So at noon on Saturday, there are two midpoints rising as the event gets underway; one is Venus/Pluto = 'extremes of wealth hidden in secret places' and 'attracting elements of organized crime'...

Venus/Pluto = ASC: meeting with those who delight in hearing about ghastly facts; creating a false sense of glamour; a fascinating personality wielding a great influence on others.

And the Mars/Pluto pair = 'a police state with rigid controls; chaos; suppression; clandestine operations'...

Mars/Pluto = ASC: showing the hero's image; aggression; a fighter who dares the impossible; daring and audacity; a coercive, intimidating demeanor; concentrating on whatever means of control you have in order to achieve your ends.

If riots or violence break out, I pre-call it as fomentation by provocative agents!

October 2, 2010's March on Washington begins during a Mercury Hour, good for mercurial concerns such as speeches, agreements, changes, and marching. It is scheduled to end at 4:00 pm edt during a Mars Hour so energy will be high (but under surveillance with Mars in secretive Scorpio, sign of spies; there may be lady spies, too, with Venus in Scorpio.) A Mercury Hour to a Mars Hour tally well with the March's slogans: "Demand the Changes We Voted For" and "One Nation Working Together."

Yes, 'One Nation Working Together' is just what Washington politicians fear! That's what the 'Ds vs Rs' and 'libs vs cons' claptrap are meant to prevent, so kudos to the marchers!

Yet we know that political slogans no longer suffice within the growing gap between rich and poor in America, so let's hope that Congress also gets the message along with President Obama: that their stalling tactics and political power games are old hat, a tiresome cliche that we-the-people, the most powerful force in the nation, are not going to wear anymore.

Glenn Beck shouts out 'global elites' (video)

Glenn Beck, as a national media figure, has never been consistent. While he has been seen on TV supporting big government bailouts, new taxes and unlimited war under the dubious banner of “conservative,” Beck has also made a name as a Libertarian of sorts, and now as a tax-revolting Patriot leader within the Tea Party.

But what Glenn Beck has never done, until now, is come so close to telling the truth. In recent episodes, as on September 22, Beck has highlighted the agenda of “global elites,” while digging up valid information on some very serious advocates of World Government, like Col. Edward Mandell House, the foreign affairs advisor to Woodrow Wilson who helped found the Federal Reserve and the Council on Foreign Relations. In the same episode, Glenn Beck exposed Eugenics as an American experiment that morphed into the Nazi Holocaust and linked Cass Sunstein with his intellectual ancestor, Edward Bernays, who refined the art of propaganda to facilitate covert social engineering and control. #

Check out the video from the Alex Jones Show:

Excerpt and video compliments of


Born on February 10, 1964 in Mount Vernon, Washington, Glenn Beck has the powerful, revolutionary Uranus/Pluto conjunction in Virgo in his natal chart which rebelliously opposes Chiron in Pisces. A Sun-Mars-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius adds strength toward goals, and though no birth time is known by this reluctant astrologer, there are a few details to be gleaned from a Noon chart which do not depend upon a specific time of birth.

Two midpoint pictures pop out (any, all, or none may apply):

Sun/Saturn = Mars: seclusion; abrupt, abrasive mannerisms within a stern demeanor; rigidity causes fights; an ability to endure in competitive activities; a desire to be in charge.

Neptune/NN = Pluto: exercising a bad influence upon the associations of other people; willingness to use strong destructive forces to protect ones privacy and isolation; increased needs to isolate oneself from societal influences; suffering depressions silently and alone. (Munkasey; Ebertin.)

Born into the 1 South Series of Solar Eclipses, Mr. Beck is concerned with ideas and their enthusiastic expression for he is flooded with new ideas and options. This Series holds an element of haste and of positive outcomes; it last manifested on Feb 5, 2000 - 5 days prior to his 36th birthday which must have been a fortunate year for him for it was a Jupiter Return year, too.) (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

An interesting aspect was in force on Feb 10, 1964, a quindecile between Saturn and Uranus, the status quo vs progress duo which were in opposition in November 2008 during the presidential election of Barack Obama.

Saturn QD Uranus in a natal chart shows one who can disrupt governing systems because of being driven toward breaking old, outdated concepts by way of innovative ideas. There's a defiance of law and order vibe to this QD (165 degrees = obsession-compulsion) for this rule-breaking broadcaster. (The Quindecile, Ricki Reeves.)

Beck's Sun AQ-Moon Cap is an unemotional Air-Earth blend indicating a no-frills approach to social life which makes him a bit of an uptight and aloof spartan; there can be a shrewd honesty as well, and a rational attitude that likes to take calculated risks.

Images for Integration: A revolutionary is elected president...An alien comes to Earth to rescue man from imminent destruction. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

So how do you see Glenn Beck? As a revolutionary president (or one who helps elect one)...or an alien come to rescue Earth? ;p

US natal Sun Cancer-Moon Aquarius and Jupiter

Most natal horoscopes for America use July 4, 1776 as our nation's birth date, the day the Declaration of Independence was unveiled to the people, and which shows the United States to be a misty, ethereal, creative Sun Cancer-Moon Aquarius blend of energies. This Water-Air combination describes the synergy between leadership (Sun) and the people (Moon) and may be worthy of a brief investigation.

This is a 'thinking vs feeling' blend with a decided past and future vibe. Humanitarianism is indicated with its concern for the public welfare, and the generous spirit of this combo supports Jupiter as our probable US natal chart-ruler (Sagittarius rising.)

Sun Can-Moon AQ is a lover of symbols which relates well to our national personality as a people, but also to the mysterious symbols our leaders have placed through the years on US coins and paper money, our flag, the Great Seal's obverse and reverse sides, etc. In fact, the Great Seal's eye in the triangle and pyramid are opposites representing the transformation process which results in a whole and creates something new: "whole-brain knowing." (Founding Fathers, Secret Societies, Robert Hieronimus.)

This relates to a new paradigm, a phrase we've heard often lately. However, this topic goes a little beyond the scope of a brief post so let's mosey back to the visionary combo of Sun Can-Moon AQ.

Typically the American people act as cautious, self-protective, old-fashioned 'crabs' with a highly romanticized view of our nation's past; yet often we are (and are seen to be) focused on futuristic plans and trends with a quirky need for space, movement, independence, and freedom. We're quite a mish-mash of thinkers and feelers which I suspect the elite ruling class realized long ago with their 'liberal vs conservative' tactics to keep us divided and conquered.

(In my universe, thinkers are allowed to feel and feelers are allowed to think whenever necessary!)

When our conscious Sun traits of Cancer are melded into our unconscious Aquarian Moon traits, we can be friends to the world with an advantageous flair for traditional progressivism. This is what I suspect most Americans are and prefer to be, for we see things as working best that way, even as politics' divisive 'either/or' requirements and propagandistic slogans busy themselves with gumming up the efficient working of our society. Unfortunately for the good of our nation, most Capitol Hill Republicans and Democrats purposefully lost that thread decades ago and have no intention of gaining it back.

With Sun Cancer-Moon AQ, the typical clannishness of Cancer is universalized by the Aquarian Moon so that broad social issues are always on our country's agenda. Family is paramount with us, yet our friends and colleagues tend to be treated as 'family', too. So personal warmth combines with abstract thought and is communicated to the world with aplomb and conviction. The sign Cancer is shrewd in business, yet we prefer to match our sentiments with actions for the benefit of all.

A weakness of the Can-AQ blend is a tendency to 'mother the world' and take on too many burdens at once. We have only to look at our government's meddling and misadventures in foreign countries to see where this tendency has led us (an empty treasury being one of its dire results.)

Sun Can-Moon AQ's Images for Integration: A mother and child skip down the street, arm in arm, to attend the Vision for World Peace charity fete at the park...The world as family...A science museum inside a restored medieval castle...Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. (Sun Sign, Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Note that Carmina Burana relates to the turning Wheel of Fortune, a perfect symbol for a nation with Jupiter as chart-ruler and our traditional focus on the acquisition of wealth and the happiness that supposedly comes with it.

Ahmadinejad's '9/11' UN speech (video)

Sometimes even the devil speaks the truth. But does Ahmadinejad?

US being molded into a police state

Well, we're back from our weekend in Atlanta and the excellent Dali exhibition at the High Museum of Art. So what do I find as I return to politics and the blogosphere?

It's official: America is a police state, says Dr. Paul Craig Roberts with whom I heartily agree for I believe that the attacks of 9/11/01 have been a signpost along the way.

Look at the engineered Financial Crisis 2008: bankruptcy rates have greatly increased ever since with more home foreclosures lining up in the wings. And what is the Sabian Symbol for the Moon (the people) on the morning of 9/11/01?

'28 Gemini' = "BANKRUPTCY" with the astrological Moon describing a reigning need.

How much clearer could it be that these events are part of an over-arching process to weaken this nation financially and socially and cause we-the-people to plead for a new world order (aka, one-world-government) to 'rescue' us? Some rescue!

The current move to include 'home grown terrorism' on the US government's target and enforcement lists is part of the process toward totalitarianism and world government. Alas, some of us expected and dreaded it when neocon Zionist warhawks usurped the White House in December 2000 (not that Al Gore isn't one of the social engineers, too - perhaps a member of a different faction than Cheney and his ilk.)

And the government proceeds as if everyone trusts that terrorist acts are committed by culprits identified by the US government! Bosh!

So now in 2010, America's becoming a police state should be no surprise to anyone. Our resources have been, after all, used for decades to fund an international police force for the entire world with hundreds of global US military bases at-the-ready.

Besides, you weren't going to use that Social Security check, were you?

The true US poverty rate being disguised

As it turns out, the US Census Bureau, official counter of poverty stricken Americans everywwhere, uses an outdated method to determine poverty rates which dates back to 1955!

Well, that's one of the many good ways to skew the numbers - use criteria from 55 years ago for 2010 issues. As if anyone with eyes, ears, and a brain couldn't tell. The US government fudges numbers - doh!

Did you know that in the 1930s, a congressman filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of the Treasury and the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Banks for fraud and treason, among other crimes? I believe the lawsuit still stands. He called them "predatory lenders".

Refreshing to think that there are some folk with enough moral courage to step up and call out a gaggle of crooks when they find one, isn't it?


Here's something on the Secondary Progressions of the Republican Party which reached its Sec Full Moon phase since 2005 when its light/power 'peaked'. Perhaps this culminating progressed phase describes a backround symptom of the party's split shown by the rise of the Tea Party. And their touted-in-time-for-midterms 'Pledge to America' announced this week is laughable!

Blog Note: we're off for the weekend at Stars Over Washington and headed to Atlanta to browse the Salvadore Dali exhibition at the High Museum of Art. See you soon, jc

Gerald Celente on the Gary Null Show (video)

Video: Gerald Celente speaking on September 20, 2010.

Yes, I'd say that as Bush and Cheney left town, they and Hank Paulson cleaned out the US Treasury quite well but apparently a few farthings were left behind for President Obama to use as chump change, with massive borrowing from China and elswhere continuing apace.

But you know me: they're all in this together and it's ruling class vs we-the-people. Besides, 'bad apples' aren't always found near the bottom of the barrel, you know. Sometimes they ferment on the top of the lot which ruins the rest of us.

DHS targets activists in PA; Mercury/Uranus busy

Magenta Alert! This HoSec-related article with video arrived in my mailbox from and I thought you might wish to know about some squirreliness going on in the excellent state of Pennsylvania:

In this edition of the Reality Report, Gary Franchi blows the lid off the Pennsylvania DHS list targeting activists. He also sits down with Arizona State Senate Libertarian Candidate Andrea Garcia to talk about her race for the Senate seat. Obama gets schooled during his own Town Hall meeting on CNBC, and we have the video. Nina breaks down the headlines including who is funding the Ground Zero Mosque and how the US is in bigger debt than the Government is letting on.

She also plays the controversial video of the middle school students praying at a Mosque during a field trip and reports on a new tax concept being proposed in the UK. The viewers brand a new “Enemy of the State” and the mailbag is sifted. #


View a basic image of Department of Homelnad Security's
2002 natal horoscope
where you'll notice its North Node in Gemini conjoins US natal Uranus opposite HoSec's Mercury at South Node. The Nodal axis, as you know, signifies the path or future direction with US natal Uranus, planet of revolution and rebellion, at NN.

Uranus/NN blends of energy represent political groups advocating radical reforms and new efforts to alter the course of events. The attacks of 9/11/01, the purported justificaton for setting up DHS, have certainly played an integral part in the altering of our nation and at the time, gave an alleged legitimacy to the disputed SCOTUS installment of Bush-Cheney administration.

(Note: HoSec's birth horoscope was published in 2005 before I developed the bad habit of scribbling my notes all over the charts I publish; the text does include a few details all the same.)

The Nodal contact lends a Mercury/Uranus flavor to the enterprise and has a 'propaganda used during emergencies' quality along with advanced technological (Uranus) surveillance (Mercury) and a potential for riots, rebellion, or protests which begin because information on HoSec's goals is not well explained.

My feeling is that there would be many more such riotous outbursts from we-the-people if the true info on neocon goals of HoSec were well explained.

A Harvest Moon @ Aries Point 9.23.10

If you're familiar with the Sibly version of America's natal chart (7.4.1776 5:10 pm LMT) you know that the September 23, 2010 Full Moon @ 00Aries, the Aries Point of World Manifestation, Fame, and Prominence conjoins US natal Ic, the Home and Domestic Scene point of any horoscope.

Aries is the sign of the pioneer and those who begin things, yet Ic is a point of Endings. This signifies a new element coming into our country, perhaps immigrants moving in or Americans on the move or protesting. This Moon is made more significant because it perfects so soon after Autumn Equinox 2010. Click to view the Equinox chart with Luna approaching the Jupiter/Uranus duo in late degrees of Pisces; some midpoint pictures are noted as well.

One thing about it: Aries is ruled by Mars, planet of fire, so keep your tender dry!

And allow Auntie Moon to clue you in on what promises to be an eventful Harvest Moon 2010!

Earth meets Jupiter (aligned w Uranus) 9.20/21.10

Midnight. Be There!

Space Weather News for Sept. 20, 2010

JUPITER AT ITS BEST: Tonight, Sept 20-21, Earth and Jupiter converge for their closest encounter in decades. The giant planet will soar across the sky at midnight, outshining everything except the Moon itself. Although big, bright Jupiter will remain close to Earth for weeks to come, tonight is the closest of all.

Check for images and more information.

SPACE STATION RADAR ECHO: Over the weekend, the International Space Station flew through the radar beam of the US Air Force Space Surveillance System in Texas. The echo was strong enough to be heard by amateur radio operators across the southern USA. A sample echo is highlighted on today's edition of SPACE WEATHER ALERTS. (My bolds and italics; their news - jc.)

With the coming of northern autumn, aurora season is underway. Would you like a call when geomagnetic storms erupt at your latitude? Sign up for Space Weather Phone: Space Weather Phone. #

You realize what this means, right? The current emphasis on Jupiter by the astronomical community simultaneously spotlights its 'conjoined' companion, Uranus, thus lifting up the Jupiter/Uranus pair of planets, their energies working synergistically. Their Great Conjunction (appr a 14-year cycle from conj to conj) is a planetary signature of 2010 on into 2011 since their third and final tango occurs on January 4, 2011 @ 27Pis02 (timed with my personal Solar Return 2011 - thanks, Universe! jc)

Astrologically, the above alert speaks of Sun 28Vir23 opposite Jupiter 28Pis23 Rx (conjunct Uranus 28Pis37 Rx) which is physically why the Earth-Jupiter encounter will be such a spectacle! From 'A Man Gaining Knowledge from an Ancient Scroll' to 'A Prism', this should be an interesting evening....really, all week has celestial events occurring, in fact. Such as Autumn EQ 2010 on Wednesday a and Full Moon on the Cardninal axis 00Aries/Libra00, a World Point of Manifestation. This makes for a very strong and eventful Autumn Equinox horoscope.

(Wish more could be added here but my article is simmering on the hob, awaiting a final go-round toward fini-dom...)

Governments that torment the people of Haiti

Suffocating the Poor: A Modern Parable

By Johann Hari

I want to tell you the story of how our governments have been torturing and tormenting an island in the Caribbean - but it is a much bigger story than that. It's a parable explaining one of the main reasons how and why, across the world, the poor are kept poor, so the rich can be kept rich. #

Possessing natural resources dooms regions of the world once the greedy raptor's eye is cast upon them. The good people of Haiti have suffered for years under the 'protective' tenets of the Monroe Doctrine. Here's the Haiti Independence Chart of January 1, 1804, in case you missed it. Brief chart details are included. Your insights are welcome.

Meet the Tea Party candidates (video)

Alex D'Atria of GOP Thinks sent along this video with details on a gaggle of Tea Party candidates and their ideas of how to govern. The smorgasbord includes Sharron Angle and Rand Paul for your 'be very afraid' consideration.

Ah, US Politics...anything emotionally engaging that keeps the American people's panties in a twist, us at each others' throats, and the power elite in charge!

And here's an oldie but moldy concerning neocon Bill Kristol's 1993 political strategy memo which sent to the GOP on how to obstruct the health care reform that might have benefited the American people years ago. Now Tea Partisans are trying to obstruct the GOP's easy slides into Capitol Hill, and in some cases, the same for Democratic incumbents.

Now on a personal level, I find this political theater tres amusing.

But on a business-of-the-people level, any Tea Partisans who make it all the way and have ideas such as those expressed in the above video could manage to gridlock the political process more than they help our nation. Yet schizophrenically, I do agree with Tea Party activists that something needs to be done about how establishment Washington politicians have undermined our country and sold the American people down the tubes toward a global internationalist New World Order. So far I've yet to hear any of them approach topics in those terms, have you?

And because it's a common trait of human nature that ego games are played in every area of life (especially where money, power, and prestige are concerned), I have doubts that the Koch brothers' funded Tea Party movement, if victorious, will be any different than the same old egotistical power plays we've always seen in Washington - only the team members' names will be changed.

My suspicion is that switching middle management will make little if any difference, for Washington politicians' habit of succumbing to blackmail to keep their positions, and the control of politicians by powers behind the throne and 'special interests', will continue.

Meanwhile (though it may be entertaining) Tea Partisans seem to me to be playing on the bottom rungs of power when real decisions are made far above - where ballots are counted, and from whence our cat's paw presidents are installed.

Why, a Tea Partisan newly seated in the US Congress would be a mere kitten tangled in yarn! And ripe for very easy sabotaging, I might add.

Yes, it is most unfortunate for America's future as a sovereign nation that the infestation of Washington DC needs a lot more than out-of-the-mainstream candidates challenging traditional GOP and Democrat power bases to successfully clear out the vermin now rotting the American woodwork.

But perhaps it represents some sort of belated start.

Pope to UK: Moon triggers July 2010 Solar Eclipse

Just a brief heads-up on the Astrology of the current visit to the UK by Pope Benedict whose presence in London today is visible in the horoscope (click image to enlarge) by Pluto 2Cap48 (the pope) and North Node 9Cap00 (encounters; meetings; the public) pointing directly at the UK's natal Ic 9Cap20 (Home) and UK natal Sun 10Cap11 (highlighted in blue.) Today's Moon 19Cap42 at noon BST, London, opposes or stimulates the degree of the July 11, 2010 Solar Eclipse 19Can24 in the 12 South Series (successful outcomes to long-term worries or illness - Brady.)

Previously I had posted that the July 2010 Solar Eclipse would 'eclipse' the UK's natal Moon (the people) in the most visible of houses in the UK chart, the 10th. Now I know how.

Plus, today's Mercury 6Vir55 and, at noon, the Midheaven, are snugged between Vatican II's powerful and revolutionary Uranus/Pluto conjunction in Virgo, therefore...

n Uranus/Pluto = tr Mercury: intense thought activity; a restless, indefatigable worker; creative activity; inventive, resourceful people; a constant occupation with new things and plans. (Ebertin.)

n Uranus/Pluto = tr Mc: aspirations for innovations and reforms; mobility; the instant grasp and exploitation of every situation.

Today has its own midpoint picture which I believe is quite apt concerning the papal see part of it written on the right side of the chart and highlighted in yellow...

Mars/Mc = Saturn: disadvantages through exaggerated zeal; actions resulting in failure; suffering harm or damage; the act of separation (didn't Britain solve that one ages ago? Perhaps not. jc); inhibitions. (Ebertin.)

And though the recent Cardinal T-Squares and Cross are not within orb, two of their midpoint pictures are formed today nonetheless (and will close ranks again once Jupiter and Uranus re-move forward into Aries, a Cardinal sign)...both point to Pluto, the Pope, so I will type them once again...

Jupiter/Saturn = Pluto: potential for a total reversal of plans already made; extreme life changes; intense business activity; transforming futuristic ideas into reality.

Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: concealing changes to activities; ending extreme practices which have hindered progress (like child abuse? church pews and coffers are quite empty - jc); rigid inflexibility replaces adaptation.

Now if you've enlarged the chart, you've spied the religious Jupiter/Chiron conjunction of the Vatican at its natal Ic, in Pisces, sign of the Two Fishes and symbol of Christ (as is Chiron); today at noon in London, tr Neptune (the Divine Source; the Spirit) conjoining Chiron (as they've been for what seems like ages now) conjoins the Vatican's natal Ic as well. Jupiter tends more toward codified religion while Neptune is the spiritual realm of the Divine.

(So if you tend toward thinking that Vatican II represents the Divine Source, you'd probably best skip the personal and Protestant opinions added after the ~:~ break below. You can thank me later. ;p)

When you consider the horoscope of Vatican II (data from historical record) the many facets of 'the lady' appear to light up the whole shebang. Here's a partial list with the sign Virgo ('the virgin') prominent: Sun 19Lib30 conjunct asteroid Lilith conjunct vestal virgin Vesta, keeper of the eternal flame (which always puts me in mind of the Illuminati since one of their primary signatures is Uranus/Neptune, the duo of 'enlightenment' and 'illumination'); natal ASC = Venus/Neptune: a peculiar disposition regarding love; revealing in love ideals; possibly a libertine image.

Mary worship is, of course, a given here. Devotion (Neptune) to a lady (Venus.)

Yet there's another midpoint that sits upon the Vatican's natal ASC...

Saturn/Uranus = ASC: the fate of standing alone in the world; mourning and bereavement; focus on forces for change which had been abruptly halted due to traditional influences; public attitudes about the institution of change concerning traditional procedures. (Munkasey.)

(I suspect the last two relate to Vatican II vs Vatican I and some church members' dislike of Vatican II...Saturn's old vs Uranus' new, plus Saturn/Uranus is a signature for the Middle East which includes Jerusalem where, it is said, global one-world-government types want to set up their earthly kingdom in order to boss around the entire planet. Talk about a zero sum game!)

On Another Note

Well, here's a delightful article by Kathryn Cassidy about the Pope's UK visit along with details on September 21, 2010's Jupiter/Uranus opposition to the Sun, and the final of three Great Conjunctions @ 28Pis43. You'll also find a list with links on current Jupiter/Uranus breakthroughs as well, and some very interesting ones, I might add.

Kathryn relates the papal sojourn to the UK with the final of three Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions this Sunday, September 19, with Jupiter (the Pope) meeting the protests of radical Uranus in Pisces, also a sign of the masses. Child abuse in the Catholic Church is the primary trigger for protests and criticism, of course, and this particular Pope has some history of 'marking 'em up and sending 'em on' (an Ab Fab reference), if I understand the matter correctly. This seems to be how church authorities protect their bad apple priests (no matter how many barrels of them you must hide by relocating them to other parishes.)

For years it was all very hush-hush, you know. Until the lawsuits started.


Now to me it seems very cheeky of a Pope surrounded by such controversy to arrive with lectures for the British people on anything but then I don't see pedophile priests, bishops, cardinals, or the popes who apologize for them as doing God's work. If that's a critical flaw in me honed by a lifetime of Protestantism, so be it.

The Ten Commandments

Besides, I refuse to forget how centuries ago, the Catholic Church sassily deleted the Commandment against not worshiping graven images, then bethought themselves to split Do Not Covet into two so as to keep the original Ten. Even the Roman Empire morphed into the Catholic Church couldn't have sold a 'Nine Commandments' version of God's Law, aka, The Decalogue (how embarrassing that would have been since 9 just can't be 10!) so one can almost sympathize with their predicament on that score (if one were inclined to. But I'm being facetious on that score.)

After all, there were statues 'crying' tears of blood to promote, candles and incense to light, indulgences to sell, inquisitions to mount, and rote prayers to instill, right? Graven images were on their minds.

Whew! The Pope's visit to my olde home countrie is rousing my anti-vatican bias, isn't it? (Not the parishioners, just the hierarchy.) And there must be pros and cons to be said for how the Brits are receiving his majesty in all his finery on the outside meant to inspire reverence and awe, even among those of a secular persuasion. Bosh! It's what's on the inside of a religious leader that should inspire reverence. By their fruits ye shall know them, and this bunch abuses children like satanic freaks, then tries to cover it up with weak apologies and court settlements that admit no guilt.

So whatever transpires inside the sovereign state of the Vatican (some say Satanism) is what Queen Elizabeth now publicly puts her stamp of approval upon as she kisses the Pope's ring in Britain, a nation with child abuse issues of its own.

Or does she approve? Well, we know that US Presidents bow and kiss the holy ring as a sign of respect. My question is: does any representative of the Catholic Church deserve decent people's respect at all? (World leaders are amoral so they don't really count in today's grumpiness.) When thousands turn out to cheer a red-robed pontiff in Britain, this only feeds his imagined role as ruler of the entire world and swells his head. (As you know, red is the color of testosterone-driven Mars, the me-first planet.)

Well, you know that Nancy Pelosi has kissed Pope Benedict's ring with a very engaged looking George Bush looking on (click for photo) as did Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (of a previous pontiff, of course.)

And since the Pope's Ring of the Fisherman (it shows Peter fishing from a boat and is appropriate for Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces, sign of the Two Fishes) is made of cast gold, one assumes that leaders and others who kiss it are bowing to King Gold - Mithras - as well.

The Roman Empire's military worshiped Mithras and 'papal bulls' still may be issued today., bulls, the bull statue on Wall Street, the Pope's Ring, papal bulls, bowing to kiss there a mysterious pattern here which is not so very mysterious when our eyes are opened wide?

Especially when we remember that on January 1, 2004, Pope John Paul II openly called for a New World Economic Order! (I kid you not - you can't make this stuff up. Well, you can but it's hardly necessary.)

Okay, this fussy Protestant will hush for now. And do enjoy your visit with the Pope, England. Better you than me, that's for sure.

An astro-peek at Constitution Day September 17, 2010

Tattered by constant assaults in recent years, ignored by arrogant, bossy globalists everywhere, the US Constitution was signed by 39 men on September 17, 1787 making tomorrow, September 17, 2010 Constitution Day and the document's 223rd birthday.

However! Master astrologer Zip Dobyns did excellent work in the mid-1980s concerning the horoscope of the US Constitution and she stated that (unlike the Declaration of Independence and our nation's founding) there is, "no question about the time the US Constitution became law" and that it "went into effect at 00 AM Local Mean Time, NYC on March 4, 1789."

Dobyns adds her views on the existing plethora of US natal charts as well so if you've ever felt conflicted over the variety and 'which one is the real natal chart?' you may wish to read her thoughts on the topic and put your kerfluffling to rest.

In its March 4, 1789 birth chart, Sun 14 Pisces conjoins Saturn 14 Pisces and Saturn is the planet ruling law, government, and business; Moon is in early Gemini, conjunct South Node (another Saturnian tone); Moon conjoins the natal Moon of President Barack Obama, former Professor of Constitutional Law.

The disciplined combination of Sun/Saturn energies in Politics and Business, according to Michael Munkasey in his excellent book Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets are described as:

Form and definition of an enterprise; the will of the people as defined in the principle founding documents; checks and balances within enterprises as implemented by various administrations; unreasonable centralization of authority in one location; older and more distanced leaders; a leadership preoccupied with various forms of law enforcement.

Now the US Constitution has worked reasonably well in the past 221 - 223 years even with the ongoing debate between 'living document' vs its stricter interpretations. My suspicion is that the mutable sign of Pisces having the rigid conjunction of Sun and Saturn as tenants indicates the typical confusion of watery, nebulous Pisces (an energy that does not like to be pigeon-holed or held captive) along with the changing character tendency shared by all mutable signs, it is, in a word, adaptable.

My thought is that if the founding fathers could have known back in the day about modern technology and other facets of modern life we deal now, they would have thought we were daft idiots to expect the US Constitution to remain as if written in Saturnian stone - and stone is never a match for Piscean waters.

So on September 17, 1787 the document was signed and then it sprung to life on March 4, 1789. Here's a link so you may view an image of the Constitution's natal chart plus, the progressions and Solar Arc work Dobyns did on behalf of us all.

The Constitution's Sun Pisces-Moon Gemini blend has a weakness which may actually be a strength: *it lives according to an ever-changing relative morality.

A weakness in an individual, oh yes. But for a living document built to last and not break from rigidity, I consider it a very great strength indeed. Do you?

Happy Constitution Day 2010, America.

Blackwater's client list; Prince's Sun Gemini-Moon Pisces

The Nation's Jeremy Scahill has popped the lid off the top clients list of Erik Prince's Blackwater ('Xe') operations and its bid to be the intell arm of Monsanto, one of the primary scourges of our times.

But Walt Disney? Really? What can Mickey be up to? Spying on Minnie perhaps?

If you prefer, Raw Story offers a synopsis of the situation and its disturbing implications.

And it seems the Democratic Party is on Mr. Prince's radar for his new book intends to vanquish them with damning revelations in time for the November 2010 midterms. As if I don't type every day that Ds and Rs are in league together against the American people. But who is Erik Prince in league with, do ya think?

Born on June 6, 1969 at an unknown hour in Holland, MI (est), Erik Prince's natal Moon remained in Pisces for the 24-hour period of his birth date, with Sun in mid-Gemini.

His powerful trio of Uranus 29Vir52 Rx (he's in the midst of his midlife crisis now), Jupiter 26:23, (SN 26:47), and Pluto 22Vir24 gives him enormous success potential. Yet many people were born with the same trio - so what he's done with his talents has been his choice and it reminds me of the old saw about fruitcakes at Christmas: people spend all that time, effort, and money baking fruitcakes when they could be making something good.

Yes, 'Dark Prince' certainly describes the man's career path and that's only considering the parts we know about.

Jupiter conjoined with South Node is similar to a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction which indicates a serious attitude toward life, conservatism, and practicality. Obstacles and snags must be overcome in the career path but with perseverance, success usually follows. (With him, it depends on what one defines as 'success', imho.)

Jupiter/SN conjunctions describe one whose ethical and social aims clash with prevailing standards of society and this creates conflicts of interests. He finds himself in disagreement with religious teachings and meets with blockages against attainment of higher education. Difficulties and delays in foreign lands are indicated and certainly have been encountered. (Sakoian.)

Interesting that natal Venus 00Tau07 is at a violent degree in the zodiac, the 00 - 1 Taurus area (Hitler's 'trigger point', his natal Sun degree.)

The power trio mentioned offers a midpoint picture to consider and as you know, the combo of Uranus/Pluto relates to revolution, secret agencies, collection of intell, riots, and violent upheavals that lead to changes in government. (Munkasey.)

Uranus/Pluto = Jupiter: added insight into legal and political processes that are used for expressing ideas about reform and change; an excess of strong feelings about imposing major changes into various areas of life.

Perhaps Prince's book will express this against the Democrats. But my strong feelings are that his arguments should more correctly be addressed toward the entire US political system, not just half of it, for all of them voted to invade the Middle East (with very few exceptions - and some of those were against Bush's war only to create an 'effect'.)

Is the big reveal that Dems were complicit and lies were told? Duh! They still are and do.

His Air-Water Sun Gemini-Moon Pisces blend is a moody, jack-of-all-trades combo and has these Images for Integration: Peter Pan marries Tinkerbell and they live happily ever after in Never Never Land...A weather vane on a church spire sparkles in the sunshine as the wind twirls it around, turning it into a mysterious sky gem.

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

Well, it's time to motor into the city (for I do have a real job, y'know!) and upon return my plan is to make more headway on writing an article for Julie Demboski's Fall issue of Eclipse. I'm the final stages on what is proving an interesting topic to me, and hopefully, it will prove interesting to you, too.

Bill Maher on Christine O'Donnell's win

By now you've heard that Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell won big in yesterday's Republican primary in Delaware with the eventual plum in the pie being VP Joe Biden's old Senate seat.

Click to watch Mr. Maher on CNN with Larry King last evening; text of the comedian's remarks are included. He says he knows O'Donnell personally and likes her (she's a nice person) but adds his usual maverick spin to the analysis!

Personally I like anyone or anything that ruffles Karl Rove's feathers or knots his jammies in a bunch and he predicted O'Donnell's loss. Oops! Seems the rules of the Republican game have changed, old horse. Perhaps it's time for ya to mosey to the barn.

Deja-vu: the Lehman Brothers collapse 2008 - 2010

September 15, 2010: it's been two years since the stupid mistake was made to let the venerable Lehman Brothers firm crash into bankruptcy. This morning NPR did a 4 minute interview with Peter Chapman who's written a book on the subject. The interview is worth a listen, if you missed it.

Now here's a post I wrote in September 2008 which details, among other things, the Lehman Brothers crisis of 1984, a study in financial deja-vu that came to pass in 2008. What? Well, you know what I mean.

And here are my blabbings in honor of last year's 1st anniversary of the firm's bankruptcy filing with a little Astrology tossed in to the brew. President Obama remarked upon the situation to mark the 1st anniversary.

Then in March 2010 Lehman Brothers was in the news again.

In hindsight, some objects may be larger than they appear.

Waking Up to Reality videos -- Max Igan

The following video presentation by Max Igan encapsulates all the primary issues that I've tried to post about in my disjointed bloggery fashion on Stars Over Washington since October 2005. There are 7 videos all together with a total running time of just under 1 hour and they are very worth your checking out for I believe Mr. Igan speaks the truth.

We certainly know by now that the mainstream media is merely a purveyor of a false reality full of celebrity news, sensationalism, doublespeak, and misinformation designed to divert us from an understanding of reality, not uncover it.

Are we truly poised on the precipice of a Global Awakening? Is there such a thing as Christ Consciousness? Years ago my church taught me that there is a Spiritual Church of Christ and I believe that these are one and the same - and that this is the sort of very important information the elite bloodline rulers of the world don't want us to wake up to from within their mass hypnosis of the fake reality surrounding us!

They prefer that we keep within our boxes, the same old mindsets continually promoted by religious and educational systems.

Mr. Igan covers many topics from Codex Alimentarius, to the Illuminati and Sun cult that rule the mundane world, to the fact that a one-world-government is already in control by way of global money and information systems. A difference is, he puts them into a universal context from the perspective of the power each individual possesses. So not only is there power in numbers but a deep and universal power within each human being.

As the matrix-infused Tarot often advises me: remember your connection to your eternal birthright! Wake up and remember.

And there is beauty shown here, both visual and verbal (Love is the Foundation of the Universe!) so if you've ever wanted to know more about the Global Awakening (which has already begun - don't be left out!) check out Max Egan's presentation on Waking Up to Reality for inspiration, or, if you're just glomming on to The Awakening, to get you started in the right direction.

Put down that TV remote control and back away...

Here are the first 3 videos with a link to the last 4 videos underneath:

Part 1...Hello? Are you there?

Part 2...all worldly entities perform their parts as tentacles of the octopus...

Part which The Matrix, black holes, human consciousness, and other cosmic concepts are explained...As Above, So Below!

And there are 4 more videos to profit by...

Congress returns, Moon enters Sagittarius 9.13.10

Today the US Congress returns to Capitol Hill after the August break for a 4-week session and with many items to address which include the thorny question of whether to extend the Bush tax cuts or not, and for the middle class or the rich.

You may wish to check out the issues and the status of existing legislation at
Open Congress.

Meanwhile, overhead, Sun remains in earthy Virgo today while the Moon floats into fiery Sagittarius, passing the gate of '1Sag' with its Sabian Symbol that has become the modus operandi of Washington politics: "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire."

Sun Virgo-Moon Sagittarius is the facts vs figures combo of energies and relates, not just to today, but to this short session of Congress. Intellectual enthusiasm is its keynote with a restless yet controlled sensibility. This is the urbane thinker and communicator blend with an inquiring mind, strong sense of duty, quick wit, and a moralistic streak.

A few members may climb onto their philosophical high horses but the Virgoan side will bring things down to earth. Preconceived ideas influence and may set someone up for disappointment even as their sentimental ideals struggle for inclusion in the proceedings.

Perhaps the traditionally cited 'trickle down' economics of enriching the wealthy, though often disproven, will be used this session (though not actively mentioned) in the battle for extension of tax cuts for the rich. Not extending them is said to be a 'jobs killer' yet who doesn't know that it's the middle class who, given extended tax cuts, would actually return the money directly into the economy? Duh!

Sun Vir-Moon Sag tends to expect 'reasonable' answers for human suffering; its lack of empathy for, and a judgmental attitude toward, those who appear to live without guiding ideals may become evident and may qualify as the 'all through your life you made choices' coldness that pretends to jettison the 'am I my brother's keeper?' argument of old - still and always with us - with a moral certitude predominating. That's some high horse they have there since it's against biblical principles (at least in my Bible. Not sure which version some of them use to justify their coldness toward their fellow citizens while bombing women and children. Are you?)

This Sun-Moon blend is shared natally by a few entertainers and one politician's wife that I know of, therefore, it may be assumed that the Capitol Hill Theater is in session, dahlink!

Arthur Godfrey, Maurice Chevalier, Mary Shelley, and Hank Williams entertain us while Margaret Trudeau, wife of former Canadian prime minister Pierre, rounds out the Virgo-Sag crew.

Images for Integration: A bespectacled librarian locks the door at closing time and transforms into Superwoman...An anthropolgy class goes on a field trip. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

And so, US Congress, boost the US economy you helped crash in spite of your personal worries over November midterm elections 2010. Put the people's business above your political power grabs and we-the-people won't care if it's Superwoman or Superman taking credit for what would be an awesome and amazing feat.


On the way: Autumn Equinox 2010.

2012 the Year of Astrology

Here is an initial link I'm posting today which concerns a movement to make 2012 the Year of Astrology so if you're an astrologer, a student of the venerable art, and/or author of or contributor to a website, blog, or forum on astrological topics, you may wish to take part or simply check it out!

All novices and professionals are welcome.

As you know, 2012 has been called a cosmic year of awareness or perhaps even a step into the unknown and Astrology is a system of thought, a language, and a tool to help us understand our world at deeper levels than meet the eye.

My hope is that you'll join in, for 2012 will arrive before we know it!

Sun-Moon blends of 9/11/01 and 9/11/10

Today marks nine years since the attacks of 9/11/01 when the Sun was in Virgo and Moon in Gemini. Naturally, the Sun is in Virgo today was well, but expectably the Moon's sign is different.

9/11/01's Solar Return to 18Vir51 occurred today at 12:42:27 pm edt in Manhattan with the Moon at 4Sco25, so let's briefly compare the two Sun-Moon blends, then and now. Rising was 00Sag46 with '1Sag' being the "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire" for its Sabian Symbol.

9/11/01: Sun Vir/Moon Gem is an Earth-Air blend indicating rationality, innovation, and efficiency and describes a temperament of the practical idealist who thinks and plans a course of action, then acts without emotional considerations. Oddly enough, there is a conscious impulse to build, consolidate, and organize and to make one's efforts as far-reaching as possible.

I say 'oddly enough' because one might wonder how destruction of buildings on that day can apply here. Perhaps something was under construction in the then-new Bush-Cheney administration which needed the shock value of the attacks in order to prosper and grow. As with most things mysterious, we could say, follow the money to see who highly profited from these heinous acts - and add 'power grabbing' to the mix since politicians were and are intimately involved.

Earth-Air is the 'dry as dust' combo of energies of someone who is adept at mastering the mundane world with a cost-effective, scientific approach.

2001's Sun Vir-Moon Gem is a combo of mental dexterity, refined tastes, and coolness. This describes a conscientious worker who takes play just as seriously as work. Opportunities come for shrewd advancement and are relished; analytical abilities and organizational skills meet with a flair for communication and presentation.

This is a good blend for linguists, analysts, journalists and writers but may result in overly critical, overly intellectual attitudes toward life and relationships; pessimistic moods are a potential along with 'too much information'.

(We certainly saw the film of the WTC attack over and over and over again on CNN as well as on other channels, didn't we? Shoving the images into our collective memory were they.)

Images for Integration: A precision engineer develops new methods of communication...A raconteur potters in his garden.

9/11/10: Sun Vir-Moon Sco is an Earth-Water blend, the 'Mud, mud, glorious mud' combo of energies. It's potter's clay on the wheel ready to be formed - the bricks, tiles, and concrete of construction. There is an innate wisdom to understand what is important and what is not, and both material and emotional security are required. Caring and loyal, this blend must be watchful of developing a limited viewpoint.

2010's Sun Vir-Moon Sco blend is discriminating and dedicated, resourceful, emotionally controlled, and long-suffering (nine years!) Health is a prominent issue (first responders?) and opinionation may be evident.

This combo possesses a servant's loyalty mixed with a tycoon's lust for power! (A description of the attendees of today's observance? That would include VP Joe Biden and Mayor Bloomberg, I do believe...tsk tsk.)

A proud inner voice must speak up and have its say. Improving methods is a must for this blend, along with a need for concentrated work. The combo describes a 'humble soul with hidden depths' as it strives to keep feelings bottled up. Care and concern for family members runs deep and responsibilities are taken seriously; a caution is a tendency to seek vengeance when pushed into a corner (today's anti-mosque protests?)

Emotionally charged opinions limit thinking with Sun Vir-Moon Sco, a combination that lives by a 'work before play' motto.

'Images for Integration: An impassioned doctor contributes statistics and personal views at a forum discussing anti-abortion laws...A zealous insect lover stands quietly in the bushes observing the mating habits of the praying mantis.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

That last image is almost too weird to comment on (my bold) especially since praying has occurred in NYC today...perhaps a description of secret service agents watching the proceedings?

Well, my small astro-effort here is based on a desire to pay respects on this day to the families and friends of the victims of 9/11/01. No disrespect is meant in the least and I hope my post is not taken as such. Plus, I send a personal shout-out of solidarity to my cousins and their families who live very near Ground Zero.

9/11/01 - 9/11/10
May all its victims R.I.P.

Global Banking Reform as Basel III meets 9.12.10

This Sunday in Basel, Switzerland, global titans meet to complete their agenda for new banking requirements which they deem are made necessary by the engineered Financial Collapse of 2008. The meeting occurs 'under the radar' for most of us, hence this posting peep-eye.

Sunday's conclave, Basel III is meant to establish, among other things, the amounts that banks must set aside for future crises and will perhaps provide substance to America's recent financial reform effort, the Dodd-Frank bill and its murky lack of particulars...devil in the details, etc. Guess the devil will be attending Basel III to help set the details.

Now you know that Mercury will still be retrograde in Virgo on Sunday, right? Virgo is good with details but a Rx Mercury, planet of meetings and negotiations, may indicate that this is not their last meeting - or, more likely, that this is another in a series of meetings where they will re-view and re-consider banking rules of a new financial order (which some call a New World Order.)

Either way, the rules they're discussing are meant for a long, drawn out implementation due to political considerations.

Fed head Ben Bernanke will be leading the US team at Basel III - which reminds me of the current position of the Neptune/Pluto midpoint (corporate titans and Robber Barons) @ '30 Capricorn'...

"A Secret Business Conference"...OPPORTUNITY...

positive expression: a gift for clever planning and successful administration in every area of life;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: rampant selfishness and rank exploitation of others.

(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.)

You don't say! Global bankers rankly exploiting other people? P-shaw!

Why, I fondly remember Ben Bernanke's first-ever shout-out as Fed head way back in February 2006...good times?

Obama presser w/ his natal Neptune rising 9.10.10

Update 9.10.10: just read Paul Krugman's piece Things Could Be Worse which addresses the economic measures of the president as mentioned in his presser today, R v D tactics and what would happen if Rs take control in November midterms, and compares our financial crisis 2008 with Japan's response to their own financial crisis of the 1990s. A good read.

And if you missed it, here's a White House link to the president's text, the video, and a list of questions and answers.

Original post begins here:

Looking at the horoscope of this morning's presidential press conference scheduled for 11:00 am edt White House, the Ascendant degree 8Sco05 brings President Obama's natal Neptune 8:36 into view as the WHAT? point of the chart/presser.

Neptune in Scorpio describes a generation (1955/57 - 1970) when man's natural desires were exploited and when some people experienced spiritual regeneration. Sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll met with emotional intensity, confusion, and clairyoyant abilities. Scorpio is a sign of money and big business as well as mystical explorations. Money and business issues are on tap today.

Neptune rising indicates much intuitive awareness of the environment and of the self in relation to others: this ASC and Mr. Obama's natal Neptune are trined by the Moon 18Lib47 in 12th house with Moon conjunct and reflecting US secondary progressed Mars Rx; '19 Libra' = "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding." (Jupiter or) Neptune near an ASC = the actor.

Will the president mention those who have robbed our Treasury? Or is he one of them? Will the cost of years of war and its dire effects upon our economy factor into his way forward? Depends on your political persuasion, I suppose, and whether Mr. Obama is a creature of Wall Street. Looking at the Goldman Sachs advisers around him, it's difficult to consider him independent of Wall Street interests.

At Mc, the WHY? point of the chart is 15Leo02 with Mr. Obama's natal Sun 12Leo33 just past; his natal Mercury 2Leo20 is in 9th house, along with the current Solar Eclipse degree 19Can24 (July 11, 2010: things at first seem worse, then clear with successful outcomes. Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Sun 17Vir48 conjunct 11th cusp 17Vir49 has just barely moved into the More visible 10th house of Public Status and Career; Mercury, retrograde until 7:09 pm edt Sept 12, is in 10th house and has been crossing and will recross Mr. Obama's natal Pluto 6Vir59, a time when info and activities relate to the gaining of more personal power, finance and investment, organization and work methods, and self-discipline. Travel may be on the president's agenda and valuable information may be garnered.

Now today at 11:00 am is within a New Moon phase when things are being seeded but the way forward is not yet clear. Foggy Neptune rising may indicate some confusion in Scorpio concerns but with great acting talent as well.

The 5th house of Risk-Taking and Gambling contains the ongoing conjunction of Jupiter 29Pis49 Rx and Uranus 29:03 Rx, both backed into murky Pisces which oddly enough, is a sign related to the military. The fog of war and Jupiter/Neptune's tendency to speculate, one imagines.

8th cusp of Big Finances 6Gem59 has a trio just inside 8th house: transiting Pan 8Gem06 Rx (panic, pandemic, Pan-American, etc), US natal Uranus 8:55, and gold-loving Midas 9Gem02 Rx.

Asteroid Minerva (which I always relate to the Hegel Society because that's the title of its journal; Minerva = to be accomplished) comes in on the South Node 9Can20 which now nestles amongst our nation's natal Jupiter and Sun; asteroid Pandora, of curiosity and going beyond boundaries fame, conjoins US natal Jupiter 5Can56 in 8th house of Big Finance.

Venus 1Sco29 conjoins the natal Sun of the New World Order (Oct 24, 1992, Uranus/Neptune conjunction #3 of 3) and has left Mars 27Lib08 behind; both are in 12th house of karma and political backdoor deals.

Saturn 5Lib15 and determined Sisyphus are traveling together at the moment and begin the 11th hour today in 11th house of Hopes, Wishes, and Associations.

Pluto 2Cap48 Rx in 2nd house of Earning Ability and Values is still apex planet of the T-Square formed by Jupiter and Saturn's opposition (just barely within orb according to my Solar Fire software program)...Jup/Sat = Pluto: immense effort; separation; violent changes; restriction; unafraid of any trouble or work in order to attain desired aims slowly but surely (paraphrasing Ebertin.)

Pluto and NN continue closing in on one another as mentioned in a previous post and will join on Nov 9, 2010 with the Moon 3Cap36 at 3:13 pm est, DC. What occurs when the dragon Pluto joins its head (NN) and is triggered by the Moon, I don't know. I do know that Pluto/NN indicates the common destiny of a large mass of people (Ebertin.)

In 4th house of today's 11:00 am presser chart has Neptune 26AQ44 Rx and Chiron 27:31 Rx, still causing US natal Moon (the people) grief and loss. The spiritual level of Neptune/Chiron is the best use of this energy with Neptune as the vortex to the Divine and Chiron as the shaman and the Christ archetype that unites the heavenly with the earthly: spiritual rewards result.

There are several indications of victimization in the chart: Sun rises with Fixed Star Denebola (to go against society; out of the mainstream), Mercury rises with Zosma (the victim or the savior), and NN rises with Facies (ruthlessness or the victim; Brady's Fixed Stars.)

Asteroid Cupido (the family; the syndicate; corporations) 26Cap55 sits atop the Mc of the Inauguration 2009 chart and conjoins US natal Pluto 27Cap33; also at 27Cap33 is the veiling Dark Moon w'mat2, a point I use as an indicator of hidden things and/or depression. All of these fall in the 3rd house of Communications which also contains two interesting midpoints that are conjunct the presidential Sun on Jan 20: 00AQ+ (also Mercury Rx in Jan 2009 for Obama): Neptune/Pluto 29Cap46 (industrial titans, the resource plundering Robber Baron signature, esp the oil and gas industries) and Pluto/Chiron 00AQ09, the oppressive plutocracy duo.

Another interesting midpoint that involves public contact (such as a press conference) is Neptune/NN (illusions used with the public) which today conjoins Jupiter's position in the 2009 Inaugural chart...

Neptune/NN = Jupiter: laying oneself open to exploitation or the desire to exploit others; placing great hopes upon an association or partnereship; experiencing disappointments or disadvantages through other persons (Ebertin.)

Whew! Sounds to me like President Obama has another uphill battle to appeal to our better nature which includes our congenital American optimism. Let's check the applying aspects the presser chart's ruler/s to see how things might proceed...

Scorpio is ruled by Mars and co-ruled on a higher octave by manipulative Pluto:

Mars first applies to a trine with Chiron 0A24 indicating that this may be a great moment for President Obama to make a breakthrough or at least regain momentum in the debate with its 'lucky breaks' vibe (particularly with males ages 25 to 35, give or take a year or so.)

Next Mars applies to a probelematic quincunx (inconjunct; 150 degr) with Uranus (who describes those now behaving in a Piscean fashion before moving back to an Aries demeanor) which functions with originality yet acts under great pressure; there is an element of trying to prove something to others or to oneself with a hastiness factor; one must learn to act independently of others who challenge the way things are being done. One thinks of GOP challenges to Obama's policies on every score.

Third and last is Mars' conjunction to the Moon (8A21) which may indicate anger and/or activism on behalf of the people who may not hear of the topics and outcome of today's presser until later in the day (8:21 = 8 seconds, minutes, hours, days?)

Pluto makes two applying aspects: s sextile with Venus (1A19) and a trine with communicating Mercury (2A59.) Venus sextile Pluto has an ability to reconstitute old forms and may indicate help from Pluto with evaluations; motives of others are easily understood and compromise is required.

Mercury trine Pluto gives a deep understanding of cause and effect and excellent financial management skills; corporate finances are indicated as well as journalism and propaganda aiding the presidents through the helpful opportunities a trine (120 degr) provides.

So it's possible that the president's plutonic masters will be happier with his message and remarks today than the nation's Mars-stimulated people will. Activism will ensue.


there be typos: please pardon, will have to edit later because the president is speaking now...

The Natal Chart of John Boehner

On Thursday, November 17, 1949 John Boehner was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was elected House Minority Leader for the Republican Party on January 4, 2007.

Mr. Boehner's birth time is unknown to me, but for the 24-hour period, the Moon remained in Libra (11:13 - 26:03) with Sun in Scorpio ranging from 24:31 to 25:32; Mercury in Scorpio 21:17 - 23:23.

The following planetary positions are from his natal chart set for noon est:

Venus 12Cap10; Mars 11Vir53; Jupiter 27Cap41; Saturn 17Vir50; Uranus 4Can25 Rx (his only Rx, an unpredictable maverick); Neptune 16Lib19; Pluto 18Leo12; Chiron 10Sag29; NN 19Ari10.


Boehner's Mars/Saturn conjunction in Virgo makes him a hard worker and good at organizing others yet there's an element of frustration as if something or someone is always holding him back - this is the 'driving with the brakes on' conjunction. There may be sexual implications.


Moon in Libra crossed idealistic Neptune during the day of his birth which is an imaginative, sensitive, emotional, and psychic combo (especially if the orb between Luna and Neptune is narrow enough to count as a conjunction - the closer, the stronger.) Professional life must have enough challenges to keep him alert, and public-oriented enterprises suit him best. (Moon = the public; Neptune = the masses.)

Facing harsh realities isn't easy for Moon/Neptune folk, and other people tend to be categorized according to very subjective criteria. Plus, Mr. Boehner may be something of a poet! (This combo is shared by comedian Craig Ferguson, btw - very creative.) And he may think he's being impartial and fair while it's actually deeply buried emotional needs that are motivating him.

Idealistic views of the mother, and thus of women in general, are probable. If there is a dependency on drinking, it may very well spring from an emotional source.


There is what can be a problematic Neptune/South Node conjunction in Libra, sign of partnerships (this conj does not depend on a correct birth time.) Neptune/SN does not make for popularity due to intuitions from the unconscious that tend to be out of harmony with social trends. Also, it can give out-of-sync timing when opportunities for good fortune arrive yet there are several indications of good fortune in his natal chart which belie this problem (see below.)

At best, one may be able to sidestep the 'folly of the masses' through superior intuitive abilities, though a caution is that others may take credit for his ideas (bwo Neptune's stealing and loss tendencies.) Neptune/SN has a karmic vibe indicating spiritual purposes which must be worked through under difficult conditions.

Sun and Mercury in Scorpio

Obviously the close conjunction of Sun and Mercury in intense Scorpio shows a deep intelligence and possible interests in mystical subjects; a talent for thinking on his feet aids his political career immensely, yet his opinions (Mercury) are extremely subjective and forcefully expressed. His primary interests relate only to his nibs.

Venus in Capricorn

Venus in worldly Capricorn describes one who needs wealth and material status to bolster emotional security; marrying above one's station is often the case with Venus in Saturn-ruled Cap. This placement may be underneath Boehner's suave, proud, and reserved manner in his public behavior. There's a quiet, dignified air which may be based on a desire to feel superior to the common man and which may border on snobbishness. (Well, he is a politician, after all. Most of them do consider themselves to be above the rabble, don't they?)

Venus square Neptune

Venus is afflicted by an applying square from Neptune which doubles the chances for the emotional, overly idealistic tendencies already mentioned with unrealistic expectations of partners; chances for using negative escapism for emotional reasons is also ramped up by this square. Secret romances may be indicated as well.

Jupiter in Capricorn

Now Jupiter in Capricorn gives good fortune in politics and business with a materialistic streak, too. At 27Cap41, Boehner's natal Jupiter not only conjoins US natal Pluto (a duo of big banking and those who mount large-scale projects) but is snugged between President Obama's natal Jupiter 00AQ52 Rx and n Saturn 25Cap20 Rx - in fact, their Saturns are conjunct in its own sign of Capricorn. What do you think - do they try to out-daddy one another? Out-control, for sure.

Mr. Obama's tenuous relationship with his father is well known and described by a retrograde Saturn (father not around, or weak when he should be strong, dominating when he should be gentle, etc - a major, unconscious influence.) But Boehner's Saturn is direct and thus is much more of a conscious influence in his life.

There are at least five midpoint pictures to consider in the chart which are in effect the whole day through, the first a T-square based on the Nodal axis and the Venus/Neptune square (any, all, or none may apply and are subject to transits and progressions):

Neptune/NN = Venus: misconceptions regarding other people's relationships and associations; unfaithfulness; wrong liaisons.

Mercury/Mars = Neptune: the process of undermining another's position; a pursuit of fantastic or hopeless plans; not keeping promises; a tendency to harm others through falsehood or underhanded behavior.

Jupiter/Saturn = Mercury: a desire for variety and making changes; inconstancy of mind and philosophy; a fortunate separation.

Jupiter/Uranus = NN: striving together with others for a common purpose; an ability to show oneself gay, cheerful, and hopeful in the presence of others; a fortunate, new acquaintance.

Neptune/Pluto = Saturn: grievous emotional suffering; pessimism; dark forebodings; self-torment; a gradual decline of one's powers and faculties.

(The Combination of Stellar Influences, Reinhold Ebertin.)

Dark forebodings? This may tally with his being born during a Balsamic phase of Sun and Moon which has a prophetic tendency, and of coming along when someone just left such as taking over a vacated position, finishing another's project, etc.

Rep. John Boehner was born into the 5 New South Series of Solar Eclipses. His Pre-Natal Eclipse occurred on Oct 21, 1949 @ 28Lib08. Paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology we find that this is a quite a spiffy PE to have for it indicates joy, happiness, good news, peak experiences, and benefits, and last occurred on November 23, 2003 @ 1Sag14 ('1Sag' = "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire" - naturally we think of the invasion of Iraq); its next manifestation will be Dec 4, 2021 @ '12Sag' = " A Flag That Turns into an Eagle That Crows."

(That's the ASC degree for the US in the Sibly natal chart. Seems to me it's crowed too loudly and too often already. We're broke from all the crowing.)

Well, that's my thumbnail astro-sketch of Rep. John Boehner. Please feel free to add your ideas to this post with your on-topic comment either astrological or political, as you may. Perhaps a little something about those piercing blue eyes?

Looking ahead to November midterms 2010

While Democrats pushed through a jobs bill that kept the doors open at local schools, hospitals, and senior centers, Republicans voted to lay off hundreds of thousands of Americans.

While Democrats looked out for us, paying for this bill by eliminating corporate loopholes, Republicans looked out for CEOs who shipped jobs overseas.

It's a clear choice this November. Either we open doors to a better future, or we slam the door in its face.


The above words are not my own. They came with the video (thanks, Alex!) but I have to say that the Republican Party prefers Big Corporations even more than the Democratic Party does.

Or at least I feel less left out with Democrats in charge.

Yeah, that's some choice the American people have for November midterms but I've never ever voted for George W. Bush before so you certainly won't catch me voting for Bush-Cheney policies this November 2010. You?

For if the GOP should wrest control of the House or Senate in November, the resulting gridlock will tie this country into more knots than we've ever before seen at a critical time when things need to improve, not stagnate in Washington.

Now I'm not a big fan of the health insurance legislation that was passed because I don't think it addressed our issues well enough and will cause rising costs for the American people, at least in the short run. But the middle class will not appreciate Republicans fighting that battle over ad nauseum, along with other battles against a Dem White House, just to score political points for their side and make themselves look important.

One thing we cannot do in November, however, is stay home, not vote, and let the GOP trample over us as they did for 8 years under Bush-Cheney. How are we liking the wars Bush-Cheney started and refused to finish? Because those neocon warhawks are what we'll be voting for in November if we vote GOP. That, I refuse to do.

And all this comes from a blogging gnat who doesn't believe the US actually has a two-party system. More Independents, please!

Now imagine if everyone in the nation got behind President Obama - and if his policies didn't work, like FDR, he and we would try something else. Actually, I thought that's what our collective plan was from January 20, 2009. And no, the Democrats are no angels, but who tossed the monkey wrench of obstructionism into our plan out of sheer spite and cussedness for losing the White House?

Predictably, it's the rabid Republican Party which seems to think they have a 'divine right' to rule. They did no soul searching when they lost in 2008. They took their same old deficiencies and prejudices and beat Mr. Obama over the head with them. I was one of those who said, Shut up. You lost. But they plowed through led by Rush's "I hope he fails" ploy. One assumes the rest of Rush's sentiment involves the failing of the nation as well since presidents-r-us.

And that's after we crashed into the ditch the GOP drove us into under Bush-Cheney with Limbaugh cheering them on! So who profited most from those 8 years? Maybe you. But it certainly wasn't the majority of the American people.

Well, if Washington politicians aren't going to legislate on Capitol Hill led by the party in power without resorting to this sort of stubborn undermining and trickery by the minority party until the nation is in worse trouble than before, why not reduce our government to only one party in name as it acts in deed? Call a ruling class a ruling class and forget the tiresome theatrics.

When the power and ego games they play leave we-the-people and our pressing business out of the political process, it's our right to kick them out of Washington. In the 2010 midterms, I'll vote Dem or Independent, but I can't think of one single Republican who deserves a chance in November to show me what he or she can do. Their party's actions and ideology of the past 10 years have shown me too well what they can do and will do if they gain a majority of seats in either chamber.

They'll ramp up the nastiness against the White House, gridlock everything, and once again the American people will be the collateral damage of the 'win at any cost' tactics that much of Washington loves so well.

Is more gridlock what we need at this critical juncture?

Or should we support the White House we have while letting Mr. Obama know when we - not the power-seeking opponents trying to undermine him - don't agree with his policies?

BP doesn't want you to view this video

Ignore BP's and the government's assurances about the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout's environmental impact and damage to our Gulf Coast region and its victimized people - watch the video anyway.

Francis Bacon, Uranus/Neptune, and Pluto

If you like to read about America's founding, Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, and other such mystical topics, you may be interested in a discovery I've just made of a site that has so many links and articles to check out, I'm just getting started. But I want to be certain you knew about it, too, though much investigation is required to find out how much it contains concerning America.

As you know, Sir Francis Bacon was an early activist within the 'New World', 'New Utopian' crowd and is thought to be the founder of English Freemasonry.

My own discovery is intriguingly titled Nine Degrees of Francis Bacon and is chocked full of some fascinating stuff!

And while I'm on such topics, here's an excerpt from J. R. Church's Guardians of the Grail:

It is reported that Benjamin Franklin was a Rosicrucian. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and George Washington were Masons...Though these men were part of these orders, George Washington warned the Masonic Lodge in America of the dangers of the Illuminati, while Thomas Jefferson and John Adams later disagreed over the use of the Masonic Lodge by the Illuminati.

"Dangers of the Illuminati"? I'll say.

So when we see the Illuminati symbol of the 'eternal flame' over an assassinated president's resting place (or over those of other world stagers' tombs, those who've mysteriously or violently died such as MLK, Robert Kennedy, Princess Diana, and Ground Zero), we may assume that the early warning against the Illuminati Society overtaking America either wasn't heeded or was, in stages, overcome by the Uranus/Neptune-inspired 'Illuminati' and their ilk and enablers.

It is my belief that our modern day New World Order types, the 'one world government' promoters such as Bush Sr, *David Rockefeller, the UN, and others you know by name, are part of the agenda's original 'vision' of America as a Utopian social experiment which uses chaos and what Naomi Klein has termed 'shock doctrine' to send mankind back to the jungle.

Seems to me that we would have to characterize the attacks of 9/11 as 'shock doctrine' and sadly for civilized people the world over, transformative Pluto's transit through the structural sign of Saturn-ruled Capricorn is mightily aiding the Uranian-Neptunian agenda as Mr. Hades, wearing his cape of invisibility, slowly approaches his natal position in **1776 at America's founding.


*David Rockefeller, in his speech to the Trilateral Commission in 1991, stated:

"But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

Actually, no. It isn't preferable at all. You plotter.

**fyi, here again are the dates of America's Pluto Return/s 27Cap33:

Newt Gingrich then and now: (im) peaches and tea

Newt Gingrich last won political office so long ago the chads have whiskers.

And though he's up to something GOP-ish with the big corporation Koch Brothers funded Tea Party movement, this article comparing him in his political heyday (think 'impeach Clinton') to his current machinations leaves me sputteringly speechless. Almost.

As I like to remind people whenever necessary: Mr. Gingrich is not from Georgia. I am from Georgia. He is not. And yes, there be many home-grown jackasses from Georgia and I may very well be one of them.

But Gingrich is from elsewhere.

So if you must, here's Newt back in 2009 accusing President Obama of 'coddling terrorists' while visions of Joseph McCarthy danced in his head.

You know, if it weren't so tragic for the entire world, I'd say, Crazy Washington! You impeached the duly elected president the American people liked while ignoring our calls to impeach the usurper, the One Who Should Have Been Impeached along with his side-winding sidekick who speaks out of the side of his mouth.
