Julian Assange birthdate surfaces on Interpol

Check out Lynn Hayes' post concerning WikiLeaks' primary info leaker Julian Assange.

Most helpfully for astrologers worldwide, Interpol has published Mr. Assange's birth date: July 3, 1971 Townsville, Australia.

This reluctant astrologer will have a peek at his solar (sunrise) and/or noon chart/s if you will! Or even if you won't. And please take a moment to answer the poll, upper right, concerning Mr. Assange.

Can't wait till the promised bank records are spilled open to view, can you? Plus, I wonder if anyone has ever asked his teachers back in Australia if he was ever known as a tattletale in school? ;p

UPDATE Dec 1, 2010: you may wish to read the comments below this post concerning the natal horoscope of Julian Assange and add your own thoughts as you wish!

"Austerity is here!" Alex Jones video; US transits of austerity



Video: Alex Jones on Austerity in America.

Well, if someone wanted my top picks of astrological factors that describe our nation's current atmosphere of 'austerity cuts' I would have to cite four:

1. the background influence of America's Secondary Progressed Full Moon of December 24, 2008 when we reached our limits of expansion (4Vir10/Pis) during the throes of Financial Collapse 2008;

2. the transit of Saturn (planet of austerity, realism, restriction, loss, and delay) to US natal Neptune 22Vir25, planet of dreams, ideals, illusions, loss - and the masses which in 1776 was posited in Virgo, the sign of Work, Service, and Health.

3. the transit of often fraudulent, deceptive Neptune to US natal Moon (we-the-people) bringing the difficult transit's ongoing sense of rootlessness, losses of homes and possessions, lies to the people, and the BP-Gulf oil blowout that still bedevils the livelihoods and health of the good people of the Gulf Coast region.

In addition, US Secondary Moon has this year conjoined US natal and Progressed Neptune as well which adds more misery and confusion, and lengthens and intensifies the dissolving effects of Neptune-to-US-natal-Moon transit such as we see with this year's revelation of robo-signed foreclosures, etc. (See sidebar link to John Townley's article on Neptune afflicting America's natal chart, or simply click here.)

Certainly other transits and progressions are playing their parts as well - some positive and helpful, some adding to our woes - but these four are proving massive enough to steal most of the cake from our economy, job market, and dinner tables. (Let them eat GM corn?)

4. the next planetary influence on my austerity list has to be: US Saturn Return, a drawn out three-fer this time, and in progress as I type (14Lib48: Dec 3, 2010, Mar 22, 2011 Rx, Aug 28, 2011.) Accountability is one of Saturn's dearest lessons and perhaps the fresh release from WikiLeaks of docs from the 'diplomatic' community gives an example of such a lesson sorely needed by the US government.

Yes, a return to realism and sanity is definitely indicated during a Saturn Return, and imho, the vision of a one-world-government ruled by the US needs to be abandoned once and for all - even though I believe our nation and people have already been sacrificed on the altar of that agenda.

Our Loss of Illusions

Though transiting Saturn conjoined US natal Neptune only once on August 27, 2009 (this time around in Saturn's 29/30 year cycle), the hit was apparently strong enough given other circumstances and weaknesses.

Around that date and ever since, the Saturnian word austerity rings from Capitol Hill and across the nation and threatens more sacrifice and loss for those tottering upon the bottom rungs of society - with some Americans newly ensconced upon the bottom rungs since the grossly wealthy Oilcan Harrys of the world are having their financial way with those whom they perceive to be their underlings while corporate titans fail to create US jobs - no matter how big or extended the fatcats' tax breaks become. ('Demand' follows paychecks, fellas!)

Yes, Saturn-to-natal-Neptune can mean a dream (Neptune) coming true (Saturn) yet in our financial condition it has brought us its 'grim face of reality' vibe with a huge splash of Saturn's cold water upon the idea of 'jobs coming back'.

Plus, the phrase austerity (Saturn) cuts (Mars) implicates the planet of quarrels and war in the dire picture as well, and many people (self included) think that slashing US war expenditures would be highly beneficial for our national budget. For US tax payers to continue funding security for all of Europe seems ridiculously laughable, and now is financially undo-able.

Watch This Video?

Yes, I too wish Alex Jones would remove the bullhorn from in front of his mouth and calm down so that more people would take his words and warnings seriously. For like most people, I don't respond well to someone shouting at me and am convinced that the info gets through to my pea brain a lot more efficiently when a measured case using lower decibels is made!

And President Obama's announcement of a two-year pay freeze for government workers? It would dovetail nicely and make more economic difference if Washington willingly added a two-year (or permanent) pay cut for all congress members, something that Rep. Marcy Kaptur called for months ago.

To close this austerity-laced post, here's a relevant bit of Franklin D. Roosevelt's Inaugural speech of Jan 20, 1937:

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."

To which I add a hearty and common good Amen.

2011 brings us 4 Solar and 2 Lunar Eclipses


Image shown: at the White House, Solar Eclipse January 4, 2011 @ 13Cap38 in 2nd house of Values and Earning Ability; eclipse opposes US natal *Sun in Cancer, here with other US planets in Cancer, in 8th house of Big Finance and Transformation; Hour of the Moon (changes; daily life; publicity); no planetary patterns and no out-of-bounds planets; out-going and practical Cardinal-Earth is strong; '13Can/Cap' are critical/crisis degrees; Mc 10Vir45 'lifts up' Fixed Star Zosma (victim or savior) and is Bush Sr's natal Ascendant degree.

Venus 26Sco51, planet of valuations and relationships, rises with asteroids Lilith and Panacea; chart-ruler Mars 20Cap59, a critical degree, makes only one applying aspect: a conjunction to the eclipse (7A21) so we have:

Sun/Moon = Mars: desire to bring ideas and plans to fruition; a realization of joint ventures.

Here are a few details on the Sun Cap-Moon Cap blend.

Co-ruler Pluto only makes an applying trine to Mc; Lord of the Eclipse, Saturn 16Lib48 in 11th house, applies to a square with the eclipse (3A09); Saturn is in the midst of a three-fer US Saturn Return 14Lib48 (which is squared by this eclipse.)

This planetary situation creates an emphasis on America's natal Sun/Saturn square which forms a 'Fist of God' pattern with US natal Moon 27AQ10 at apex.

Our natal Sun/Saturn = Moon: attention to daily activities; emotional or organic depression; feeling inferior or inhibited; bereavement; fear.

Substitute our natal Moon (we-the-people) in the above midpoint equation with the Jan 2011 eclipse's Neptune 26AQ50 and we have...

n Sun/Saturn = Jan 2011 Neptune: a mental, emotional, or physical crisis; inhibitions; inner peculiarities; a relaxation of plans that are thought to be too rigid ('austerity' or 'entitlement cuts'? jc); delusion within relationships; loneliness.

Also, Pluto trine Mc provides the chart with Pluto sextile Ic, an aspect which describes those who wish to control others and make all decisions, secretiveness and quarrels, and sleuthing into other people's business. Investigators, librarians, historians, police and military forces, secret agencies at home (Ic), and archaeologists are particularly hightlighted. (The Sextile, Alan Epstein.)

You may notice that the HOW? Point of the chart (Ic) is @ '11Pis' = "Men Seeking Illumination", a symbol which outs the much-disputed Illuminati presence in America.

The wounding, confusing, watery transits of Neptune and Chiron to US natal Moon continue to plague us with fraud, dissolution, homelessness and foreclosures; tr Pluto, the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, opposes US natal Jupiter, a period when US financial matters and professional status are not favored; measures taken during this time will not be sufficient though we may not actually know just who stands in our way due to devouring Pluto's invisible cloak and subversive, sabotaging actions.

However, nothing that is truly ours will be destroyed during the Pluto opposite n Jupiter transit - yet this does not include fortunes that exist only on paper or on a computer screen.

Political aspirations are better put on-hold for a while since they likely will be challenged by more powerful forces as the US is locked in a major struggle for control of Jupiterian issues relating to money, the military, religion, higher education, expansion, growth, exploration, and...did I say, money?

Plus, the Sabian Symbol for '28Gem' (the 8th house cusp) is 'Bankruptcy'; Gemini is a sign of duality indicating multiplicity and potential duplicity concerning 8th house matters such as debt, credit, insurance, banking, and such.

Now as you know, the off-on transit of the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Uranus 27Pis01/02 show the pair to be quite exact (partile) in 4th house of Domestic Scene and Homeland in the eclipse chart set for DC; Jupiter/Uranus is the far-traveling 'lucky break' duo that, in politics and business, indicate such themes as:

reform originating in religious principles; applying legal methods against breakdowns in order, strikes, or revolutions; periods of reform are followed by growth; civil war or unrest due to a legal or religious system which stifles justice for the common people; labor-saving devices bring modernization (Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, Michael Munkasey.)

Yes, one of the more encompassing backgrounds of our societal atmosphere that I consider when composing Political Astrology posts are the Solar and Lunar Eclipses for any given year. Whether offering crises or opportunities, these wild card lunations of the universe have always fascinated the collective and may influence events and outcomes even when partial or seen from only certain vantage points upon the Earth; even when 'invisible', we know they're there.

Today I'm displaying only the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse but basic details for the other eclipses are here included; further eclipse chart images for 2011 will be published as my blogging schedule allows.

Here is NASA's website which gives paths of visibility for Solar Eclipses 2011 - 2020. Alternately, you may wish to check out Hermit.org.

The year 2011 contains 6 eclipses all together: 4 Solar and 2 Lunar.

Let's look at the 4 Solar Eclipses by Series themes and add a few details on the Lunar Eclipses as well since, as you know, 2011 is thought to herald difficult times and acts as chronological doorkeeper to the much-ballyhooed '2012' of Mayan Prophecy, legend, and New-Agery promise; the global power elite have played on collective fears well and see this era as implementation time for total control of the planet.

In order of manifestation, the Solar Eclipses of 2011 are noted; Sabian Symbols are from Dane Rudhyar's An Astrological Mandala and will be rounded up to the next degree for simplicity's sake when minutes are less than 30; eclipse details are primarily from Brady's Predictive Astrology and Celeste Teal's Eclipses though there's some melding of Series themes for the June 1 and July 1 Solar Eclipses; some of my own notes may be included; midpoint pictures are from Tyl, Ebertin, and Munkasey and any, all, or none may apply:

As pictured above (click chart to enlarge and read my scribbled notes; plus, US natal planets are notated in red, outer) 13 North: January 4, 2011 @ '14 Capricorn': "An Ancient Bas-Relief Carved in Granite Remains a Witness to a Long-Forgotten Culture"; 'Keynote: The will to unearth in our culture as well as in any culture, what has permanent value, and to let go of non essentials.

What is needed is a penetrating and courageous insight founded upon a valid HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE.' We must 'learn to appreciate the excellence of what is the immortal seed-foundation.'

(Is this a Monsanto-GM-seed reference? This degree opposes US natal Sun degree '14Can'; the Sun in Mundane Astrology = the leader or leadership. The actual eclipse occurs @ 13Cap38, a crisis or critical degree, and you don't need Astrology to tell you how the nation and world are mired in such just now; its link to US natal Sun indicates an administration crucially connected to world events; powerful opposition to the president's agenda brings turbulence and legislative delays, trade imbalances, strikes, and discontent. France is one of the countries embroiled against governmental "austerity cuts" and retirement age changes which enrage populations everywhere especially since the wealthiest classes seem to be making no sacrifice at all - and war expenditures are what should be 'cut'; Uranus and Pluto square off in Cardinal degrees for their usual unrest and rebellion; mid-1960s issues resurface from the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Pluto including racial relations.)

13N Series themes: groups and associations; large, ambitious group projects which require the breaking of an existing bond; separation, then joint achievement. Last occurred: 1992.

(The initial eclipse in this Series manifested on August 14, 1776 and I suspect it to be America's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series - 'PE' - as much as any other; all the signatures were not garnered onto the Declaration of Independence until early August 1776 and eclipses can affect us for up to two weeks prior or after their actual manifestation; this eclipse's chart for August 14, 1776 works well as a US natal chart, too. Check it out and let me know what you think of it as a symbolic natal chart for America - Neptune and Pluto are in virtually the same degrees as on July 4, 1776.)

Solar Eclipse, 13S: June 1 @ '11Gem02' (a 2-degree orb with US natal DESC in our Sibly chart): "Newly Opened Lands Offer the Pioneer New Opportunities for Experience"; 'Keynote: The power and joy of new beginnings. (Man) is facing the unknown. Anything can happen. ...Every step ahead should show him RISING TO THE OCCASION.'

13S themes: expansive energy but with a sinister flavor underneath; striving for positive or negative group endeavors; storms, dismissals, evacuations, and a potential for constitutional crisis. Last occurred: 1993, year of the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune, the illuminated pair who now assist one another by mutual reception.

The sign Gemini indicates communication, transportation, and trade issues; occurring in the 8th house in Washington DC, there may be a death or resignation of a public figure, and treaties and negotiations with foreign countries may be negatively impacted.

June 15, Lunar Eclipse @ '24Sag23': "A Blue Bird Perched on the Gate of a Cottage"; 'Keynote: The reward which meets every effort at integration into a social environment for those who remain true to their own selves'.

Blue bird = happiness but 'it also refers to what one might call a spiritually oriented mind. ...The essential technique for successful living is the development of a consciousness in which peace and happiness dwell. There is also a hint that GOOD FORTUNE is going to bless your life.'

Some improvement may be indicated in foreign relations which results in prosperity; crime, rehab, sanitation, and hospital issues are on the menu.

Solar Eclipse, July 1, 2011 (which Celeste Teal has labeled the "Democratic Spirit" eclipse) @ '9Can12' = '9Can' = "A Small Naked Girl Bends Over a Pond to Catch a Fish"; 'Keynote: The first naive quest for knowledge and for an ever-elusive understanding of life.

"Small naked girl" = 'the innocent and spontaneous mind, as yet unclothed in cultural patterns and unrestrained by don'ts, trying to satisfy its curiosity about what seems mysterious and fleeting. ...The key here is PURITY IN UNDERSTANDING.'

As you know, '9Can' falls amidst America's Venus, Jupiter, and Sun (3 to 14 Cancer) and is the midpoint degree of our nation's natal Sun/Venus and Sun/Jupiter combinations. Therefore...

In politics and business, Sun/Venus = using wealth available to a nation or business to sustain its image or authority; how a nation shapes the direction of its growth; the nature of reserves, resources, and the roles they play in national development; a leadership that doesn't appreciate the role that culture or art play in the development of national character; a society estranged from its leadership.

Sun/Jupiter = directness and forcefulness when facing challenges; a nation's reputation in the world; an ability to lead others; religious or philosophical systems which tie effective leadership of a nation to a predetermined course of action; a nation's executive branch battling with the legal and justice systems. (Midpoints, Munkasey.)

A Cancerian Solar Eclipse indicates crisis and/or opportunity in these areas.

However, the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse may come off as an insignificant solar eclipse for it is a tiny partial eclipse which will be visible from a small patch of ocean near Antarctica. And yet the potential for natural disasters cannot be ruled out with the influence of any eclipse, can they? And perhaps the universe is lengthening our lessons and indicating a longer period of time for teaching us.

The final Solar Eclipse of 2011 occurs on November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 in the difficult 14 North Series. Celeste Teal gives this one a "Blazing New Trails" label; Brady's Predictive Astrology describes the 14N Series as "most peculiar" and says it "heralds an acute time of confusion in personal relationships, unexpected happenings in financial matters, and possible illness."

This eclipse may bring unrequited love, despair and a draining of energy, confusion, and a weird turn of events (for you personally, lone reader, it all depends on which departments of life - 'houses' - an eclipse degree falls into and how it triggers various planets and points in your chart...maybe it doesn't!)

Therefore, no important judgments or decisions about events should be made until the influence of this eclipse fades for too much deception and illusion exist for anyone to be clearly informed or realistically inspired.

Then there are those who do the confusing, deceiving, and magic tricks meant to veil the truth!

Note: the White House's natal Venus is eclipsed for natal Venus (Nov 1, 1800) lies @ 2Sag11 in the 10th house of the 'noon' chart. (Nov 1, 1800 is the day the Madisons moved in to occupy the W-H for the first time. You may wish to scroll the sidebar of this blog for 'What James Madison was saying in 1817', the year of the Monroe Doctrine which may now be aiding the warmongering global elite puppeteers as they maneuver to plop the US into yet another broiling broth of war - such as in N/S Korea.)

More Time Links between 1074 and Our Day?

For historical perspective on the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse, it may be instructive to consider that the 14N Series first manifested on April 29, 1074 OS @ 13Tau54, with Neptune - the veil - @ 9Gem09 Rx, where gold-hoarder Midas, the asteroid, hangs around these days.

This Neptune-Midas time link leads me to suspect that 'the veil' mentioned above in the 14N theme info, in Nov 2011, has to do with the world's wealth and resources which are close to being completely gathered in and hidden away by the global power elite who don't need more riches in order to put food on their tables, but use the illusion of money to ramp up within each of us our senses of lack, want, inferiority, and loss. With currency collapses possible, the olden days of bartering may have to return.

The 1074 eclipse degree of '13Tau54' is within one degree of our modern Inaugural Ascendants which always represent the Oath of Office of the President of the United States (Jan 20 @ noon in DC), and thus, the US presidency and whoever is playing the role at any given time.

14N's initial eclipse in the year 1074 also has Saturn @ 8Sag11 showing that the eclipse in this difficult series occurred during a Saturn/Neptune opposition phase which stimulates within the collective morbid, morose, melancholy thoughts, and a tendency toward irrational fears stemming from deep within the collective unconscious.

As you know, the antithetical Saturn/Neptune duo of energies indicates such social issues, concerns, and conditions as socialism and/or communism, where Saturn's rigidity, realism, and stability meets Neptune's dreaminess, dissolution, and fraud. Together they represent caution, pessimism, long periods of neglect, and a general lack of accountability; large social movements are also involved as authority (Saturn) is challenged (opposition) by the masses(Neptune) - and possibly authority is challenged by the media (Neptune)!

Another interpretation of Saturn/Neptune may be particularly highlighted as well esp if you tend to use the 'Sibly' natal chart for America (5:10 pm LMT on July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA) because our national Saturn 14Lib48 and Neptune 22Vir25 straddle the Midheaven 00-2Lib giving our nation a Sat/Nep = Mc vibe = taking a stand on practices which lessen the quality of life and a reputation (Mc) for correcting such practices; using shortened, inefficient methods when tough, dedicated, completed work is needed;giving up and capitulating to the demands of the environment; peculiar loss of ambition; materialism vs idealism; emotional suffering; moodiness; losing courage quickly.

In the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse chart pictured above, Mercury 21Sag22 in 1st house, sits precisely upon the Saturn/Neptune midpoint... so we have: 'pessimism; a difficult grasp of things; strangely nervous' to begin 2011 - and the difficult 14 North Series to end the year. For this and other reasons, 2011 will be a doozy.

And, of course, a most basic consideration for America whenever it comes to Saturn/Neptune is: Neptune (invisible; shadow) government (Saturn) and the continuing mystery of just who is really in charge of America.

Closing the year is the December 20, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11, not quite close enough to US natal Mars to count as an 'eclipsing' but near enough for some military and police fretting to occur especially when we think of how 2011 began: with a Solar Eclipse conjoined by the explosive Mars/Pluto midpoint upon it, so that two pictures are created:

Mars/Pluto = Sun: working hard until collapse; violent measures; injury or accident; shock from the intervention of a Higher Power; effectively imposing one's will or theories upon others; a pushy or demanding nature; achievements attained by superior techniques or endurance.

Mars/Pluto = Moon: a strong impulse to proceed with ideas or plans; using traditional means of power to meet goals; audacity and daring; ambition; impulsive or hasty actions; a determined woman.

The year-end effects of the Dec 2011 Lunar Eclipse influence the start of the year 2012 with the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse providing background vibes; the first Solar Eclipse of 2012 doesn't occur until May 20, 2012 @ 00Gem in the 14 South Series when "an obsessive idea is finally accepted"; 14S last occurred in 1994 and thereby resurfaces issues from the 1994 Republican take-over of Congress; it may also indicate some types of property settlements (Gaza? the US foreclosure mess? other?)

Completing the 2011 eclipse list

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles the December 2011 Lunar Eclipse Solicitations with its ruler Mercury accenting communications, speakers, messages, negotiations, youth, transport, trade, and education; we may as well go ahead and add 'reporters, journalists, and bloggers' to the slosh as war (Mars/Pluto) propaganda (Mercury) envelopes and attempts to persuade the world to bomb innocent people once again.



Venus 26Sco51, planet of valuations and relationships, rises with asteroids Lilith and Panacea; chart-ruler Mars 20Cap59, a critical degree, makes only one applying aspect: a conjunction to the eclipse (7A21) so we have:

Sun/Moon = Mars: desire to bring ideas and plans to fruition; a realization of joint ventures.

Co-ruler Pluto only makes an applying trine to Mc; Lord of the Eclipse, Saturn 16Lib48 in 11th house, applies to a square with the eclipse (3A09); Saturn is in the midst of a three-fer US Saturn Return 14Lib48 (which is squared by this eclipse.)

This planetary situation creates an emphasis on America's natal Sun/Saturn square which forms a 'Fist of God' pattern with US natal Moon 27AQ10 at apex.

Our natal Sun/Saturn = Moon: attention to daily activities; emotional or organic depression; feeling inferior or inhibited; bereavement; fear.

Substitute our natal Moon (we-the-people) in the above midpoint equation with the Jan 2011 eclipse's Neptune 26AQ50 and we have...

n Sun/Saturn = Jan 2011 Neptune: a mental, emotional, or physical crisis; inhibitions; inner peculiarities; a relaxation of plans that are thought to be too rigid ('austerity' or 'entitlement cuts'? jc); delusion within relationships; loneliness.

Also, Pluto trine Mc provides the chart with Pluto sextile Ic, an aspect which describes those who wish to control others and make all decisions, secretiveness and quarrels, and sleuthing into other people's business. Investigators, librarians, historians, police and military forces, secret agencies at home (Ic), and archaeologists are particularly highlighted. (The Sextile, Alan Epstein.)

You may notice that the HOW? Point of the chart (Ic) is @ '11Pis' = "Men Seeking Illumination", a symbol which outs the much-disputed Illuminati presence in America.

The wounding, confusing, watery transits of Neptune and Chiron to US natal Moon continue to plague us with fraud, dissolution, homelessness and foreclosures; tr Pluto, the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, opposes US natal Jupiter, a period when US financial matters and professional status are not favored; measures taken during this time will not be sufficient though we may not actually know just who stands in our way due to devouring Pluto's invisible cloak and subversive, sabotaging methods.

Last occurred: 1993, year of the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune, the illuminated pair who now assist one another by mutual reception.

The sign Gemini indicates communication, transportation, and trade issues; occurring in the 8th house when set for Washington DC, there may be a death or resignation of a public figure (Poppy or Mommy Bush?); treaties and negotiations with foreign countries may be negatively impacted.

In politics and business, Sun/Venus = using wealth available to a nation or business to sustain its image or authority; how a nation shapes the direction of its growth; the nature of reserves, resources, and the roles they play in national development; a leadership that doesn't appreciate the role that culture or art play in the development of national character; a society estranged from its leadership.

Sun/Jupiter = directness and forcefulness when facing challenges; a nation's reputation in the world; an ability to lead others; religious or philosophical systems which tie effective leadership of a nation to a predetermined course of action; a nation's executive branch battling with the legal and justice systems. (Midpoints, Munkasey.)

A Cancerian Solar Eclipse indicates crisis and/or opportunity in any or all of these areas.

However, the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse may come off as an insignificant solar eclipse for it is a tiny partial eclipse which will be visible from a small patch of ocean near Antarctica. And yet the potential for natural disasters cannot be ruled out with the influence of any eclipse, can they? And perhaps the universe is lengthening our lessons and indicating a longer period of time for teaching us.

The final Solar Eclipse of 2011 occurs on November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 in the difficult 14 North Series. Celeste Teal gives this one a "Blazing New Trails" label; Brady's Predictive Astrology describes the 14N Series as "most peculiar" and says it "heralds an acute time of confusion in personal relationships, unexpected happenings in financial matters, and possible illness."

This eclipse may bring unrequited love, despair and a draining of energy, confusion, and a weird turn of events (for you personally, lone reader, it all depends on which departments of life - 'houses' - an eclipse degree falls into and how it triggers various planets and points in your chart...maybe it doesn't!)

Therefore, no important judgments or decisions about events should be made until the influence of this eclipse fades for too much deception and illusion exist for anyone to be clearly informed or realistically inspired --


...as we enter 2012. And then there are those who do the confusing, and deceiving along with their magic tricks meant to veil the truths we need to know in order to make wise decisions! Well, manipulative Pluto does like to hold all the cards.

Note: the White House's natal Venus is eclipsed/conjoined in Nov 2011 for natal Venus (Nov 1, 1800) lies @ 2Sag11 in the 10th house of the 'noon' chart. (Nov 1, 1800 is the day the Madisons moved in to occupy the W-H for the first time. You may wish to scroll the sidebar of this blog for 'What James Madison was saying in 1817', the year of the Monroe Doctrine which may now be aiding the warmongering global elite puppeteers as they maneuver to plop the US into yet another broiling broth of war - such as in N/S Korea or elsewhere.)

More Time Links between 1074 and Our Day?

For historical perspective on the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse, it may be instructive to consider that the 14N Series first manifested on April 29, 1074 OS @ 13Tau54, with Neptune - the veil - @ 9Gem09 Rx, where gold-hoarder Midas, the asteroid, hangs around in the tropical zodiac these days.

This Neptune-Midas time link leads me to suspect that 'the veil' mentioned above in the 14N theme info, in Nov 2011, has to do with the world's wealth and resources which are close to being completely gathered in and hidden away by the global power elite who don't need more riches in order to put food on their tables, but use the illusion of money to ramp up within each of us our senses of lack, want, inferiority, and loss. With currency collapses possible, the olden days of bartering may have to return.

The 1074 eclipse degree of '13Tau54' is within one degree of our modern Inaugural Ascendants which always represent the Oath of Office of the President of the United States (Jan 20 @ noon in DC), and thus, the US presidency and whoever is playing the role at any given time.

In addition, 14N's initial eclipse in the year 1074 also has Saturn @ 8Sag11 showing that the eclipse in this difficult series occurred during a Saturn/Neptune opposition phase which stimulates within the collective morbid, morose, melancholy thoughts, and a tendency toward irrational fears stemming from deep within the collective unconscious.

As you know, the antithetical Saturn/Neptune duo of energies indicates such social issues, concerns, and conditions as socialism and/or communism, where Saturn's rigidity, realism, and stability meets Neptune's dreaminess, dissolution, and fraud. Together they represent caution, pessimism, long periods of neglect, and a general lack of accountability; large social movements are also involved as authority (Saturn) is challenged (opposition) by the masses(Neptune) - and possibly authority is challenged by the media (Neptune)!

Another interpretation of Saturn/Neptune may be particularly highlighted as well esp if you tend to use the 'Sibly' natal chart for America (5:10 pm LMT on July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA) because our national Saturn 14Lib48 and Neptune 22Vir25 straddle natal Midheaven 00-2Lib giving our nation a Sat/Nep = Mc vibe = taking a stand on practices which lessen the quality of life and a reputation (Mc) for correcting such practices; using shortened, inefficient methods when tough, dedicated, completed work is needed; giving up and capitulating to the demands of the environment; peculiar loss of ambition; materialism vs idealism; emotional suffering; moodiness; losing courage quickly.

In the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse chart pictured above, Mercury 21Sag22 in 1st house, sits precisely upon the Saturn/Neptune midpoint... so we have: 'pessimism; a difficult grasp of things; strangely nervous' to begin 2011 - and the difficult 14 North Series to end the year. For this and other reasons, 2011 will be a doozy.

And, of course, a most basic consideration for America whenever it comes to Saturn/Neptune is: Neptune (invisible; shadow) government (Saturn) and the continuing mystery of just who is really in charge of America.

Closing the year is the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11, not quite close enough to US natal Mars to count as an 'eclipsing' but near enough for some military and police fretting to occur especially when we think of how 2011 began: with a Solar Eclipse conjoined by the explosive Mars/Pluto midpoint upon it, so that two pictures are created:

Mars/Pluto = Sun: working hard until collapse; violent measures; injury or accident; shock from the intervention of a Higher Power; effectively imposing one's will or theories upon others; a pushy or demanding nature; achievements attained by superior techniques or endurance.

Mars/Pluto = Moon: a strong impulse to proceed with ideas or plans; using traditional means of power to meet goals; audacity and daring; ambition; impulsive or hasty actions; a determined woman.

The year-end effects of the Dec 2011 Lunar Eclipse influence the start of the year 2012 with the Nov 2011 Solar Eclipse providing background vibes; the first Solar Eclipse of 2012 doesn't occur until May 20, 2012 @ 00Gem in the 14 South Series when "an obsessive idea is finally accepted"; 14S last occurred in 1994 and thereby resurfaces issues from the 1994 Republican take-over of Congress; it may also indicate some types of property settlements (Gaza? the US foreclosure mess? other?)

Completing our 2011 eclipse list

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse Solicitations with its ruler Mercury accenting communications, speakers, messages, negotiations, youth, transport, trade, speculations, and education; we may as well go ahead and add 'reporters, journalists, and bloggers' to the slosh as war (Mars/Pluto) propaganda (Mercury) envelopes and attempts to persuade the world to bomb defenseless people once again thus expand the globalists' totalitarian reach.

*The January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse times a Sun-opposite-natal-Sun transit for the US when the year's path or agenda is reconsidered with an eye toward making changes in the trajectory if things aren't going as planned.

Delay, WikiLeaks, Plame, and FOX 11.26.10

With Stars Over Washington still lounging about somewhere near Atlanta, GA on Thanksgiving holiday 2010 (well, there's only me, really) I've taken an hour to mosey round the Web and catch up on all the news I can smoosh into such a brief time.

Two of the four bits that stood out to me are the (long overdue) conviction of gangster Tom Delay for money laundering, and the upcoming release of a WikiLeaks cache revealing what global diplomats say about their governments and think of one another. How groovy! Sounds like a grand idea to me especially as an astrologer who likes to peek under the hood of politics at what political hoodlums and their brethren are secretly up to!

Might the new revelations from WikiLeaks cause havoc, interfere with so-called diplomacy, and undermine war? You betcha! Yet what causes more havoc than war - and perpetual, illegally waged at that?

Also the release of the Valerie Plame-Joe Wilson film starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn may be elucidating as well for I did have a chance to watch Tavis Smiley interview them this week on his program. It's the Hollywoodesque-ing of Washington, yes, but good stuff.

Fourth is the crazy tale of how the FOX organization's fans and dupes took a satirical story in The Onion as gospel: it was a "75,000-word email" supposedly sent "to America" by Barack Obama detailing what some readers determined was evidence of the President's 'breakdown' which convinced them that he should be removed from office based on only the "email", that he should be sent to a shrink, etc. (If he keeps such an appointment, he should take all Washington warmongers and certain media moguls with him.)

The amazing degree of their rabid-fox gullibility defies description except to be breath-taking in its hilarity - a definite gotcha moment for any anti-Obamaist who apparently can't recognize The Onion's satire when they see it because the fakery plays conveniently into a typical FOX News propaganda script. Duh.

So, in honor of anyone and everyone who leaks the truth, tells it from the start, appreciates those who do, or uses satire to point it out, here is a quote brought to you compliments of the excellent Information Clearing House Newsletter where you'll find interesting articles galore on these and other newsworthy topics:

"Every man who says frankly and fully what he thinks is so far doing a public service. We should be grateful to him for attacking most unsparingly our most cherished opinions."

-Sir Leslie Stephen (1832-1904), literary essayist, author; Source: The Suppression of Poisonous Opinions, 1883

See you all on Sunday - opinions, hood-peekings, and all!

Unemployment benefits expire Dec 31, Rs rejoice!

Well, in America, droves of rich folk turned out to vote against Democrats on November 2, 2010 - to protect their own monied self-interests. And you know that they and their reps on Capitol Hill are against extending federal "jobless benefits" (unemployment 'insurance' checks of about $290 per week set to expire December 31) to unemployed US workers, many of which were laid off or made redundant by the very same class of rich folk and their kin who voted en masse on November 2.

Yes, it seems to be dandy fine with the wealthy class if millions of US children go without the basics. No skin, one assumes, off their bulbous noses. And yet such tax relief they need, pitiful things!

So why did Independents, young people, and others who voted in massive numbers in 2008 stay home from the 2010 dance? If it was so that the upper crust plutocrats could gain a leg up, you leave me sputtering. As of tomorrow I'll be off for the holiday here in the US and perhaps I'll have a quiet moment to think about all of you, for you puzzle me, you do. Trusting plutocrats with your society, your politics, and your money is never fruitful and won't make you into one of them, you know. Nowhere near, not even close.

Now Wednesday morning's SO'W post of 11.24 will tide this blog over until my return, so it's: Have a good one, Everyone! And I can only hope a few of you non-voting folk will give serious thought to giving up on something else instead - something that isn't as near and dear to you and your family's future and best interests, and that won't affect your personal livelihoods in such a dire and disruptive way as what's coming from Capitol Hill.

Or perhaps I should say, Not coming?


A vote for Republicans (or someone resembling them) is a vote for Turdblossom.

Uphill on Capitol Hill: Rs ruling the turkey roost?

Doyle McManus' analysis of what's going on on Capitol Hill since the Republicans triumphed in midterms 2010 (thanks a lot, everyone who voted for Karl Rove's party) sums things up quite well.

You know, the Republican Party experienced a Progressed Full Moon in 2005 which is a timing device indicating that one has reached one's limit of expansion in the world - a culmination of sorts. (The R Party entered its Disseminating phase by progression on March 19, 2009 with its 'put out the message' vibe.)

Well, I'm assuming that if it weren't for Tea Party madness, the Rs would be tamping themselves down instead of revving up for more of their "I'm not my brother's keeper" cold-heartedness at a time when the poor and middle classes have already sacrificed - or been sacrificed - into ruination or close to it.

Which begs the usual question around this blog: is the collapsing of American society the ultimate goal of Washington politicians?

In Ireland, the IMF is recommending (insisting) that the Irish minimum wage be lowered. How outrageous! And in America, President Barack Obama handed trillions of tax payer dollars to...the people who would spend them and infuse life into the US economy? Nope! To wealthy bankers who engineered the mess and who now cheer on the IMF and others who advise 'austerity cuts' against the people thereby demanding what money and dignity we have left!

So my question for you is: will November 25, 2010 become known as America's last Thanksgiving Day?

Maybe we should take a gobble down memory lane: the video of the President's Thanksgiving Day message to America during the embroilment of Financial Collapse 2008.

Wonder what he'll be able to say to us this year?

JFK outed the global conspiracy (audio)



Yes, there still exist multiple theories as to why President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Examples include: a crazy assassin with a desire for fame, Fidel Castro, the Mafia, the CIA in retaliation for the mishandled Bay of Pigs fiasco, or my preference: his presidential noises about his plans for reforming the world banking system.

This audio of JFK's words emphasizes the existence of a covert conspiracy, a global crime syndicate, that surely must be top of the list of culprits and yet it doesn't point to any of the above theories in particular...except, imho, for the one about the world banking system which is in process of taking over Ireland, the Kennedy family's ancestral home, as I type.

Rockefeller Study on 2010 - 2020 = "Decade of Doom"?

First let me say that I'm very sad to hear this moment on Amy Goodman's program Democracy Now! that scholar and author Chalmers Johnson has passed away.

His book The Sorrows of Empire is in my library and is an excellent resource for topics concerning the end of our republic. The economic collapse under which we now struggle is what Mr. Johnson termed the Last Sorrow.

And on a similarly difficult topic:

Since my work/blogging week is shortened by holiday considerations, I'm in a hurry and picking up a quick thread in the form of an article by Steve Watson published to Prison Planet on July 16, 2010 (article link provided below.)

It concerns a study funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Global Business Network which lays out what they and their elite buddies envision for what they term the "Doom Decade" of 2010 to 2020, with the distinction between "developed" and "developing" nations no longer "particularly descriptive or relevant" by 2030.

Now I know you realize that beast worshipers play for keeps yet there will be many many people who won't realize how serious the power elite are about instituting authoritarian social control until the trap is sprung - even though many astrologers have been writing and warning about the period 2010 - 2020 for years now.

After all, timing is what Astrology brings to any table which no other system can provide...As Above So Below, and the planets proceed in their courses within the Great Cosmic Clock of our solar system.

No Politics today, but a new blog is born!

Yes, I am watching the Sunday morning talking heads and pundits on TV as they blab about Obama, Palin, Haiti, and START, but plan no posts for today concerning Politics or Astrology.

However, a new blog has been created just yesterday so I'm giving my own self a shout-out and sending you a cordial invitation to check out Woolly Mammoth Chronicles where Science's visionary DNA-cloning project and 'mammoth poetry' meet and greet!

Full body scanners: Chertoff's conflict of interest (video)



As you've probably heard by now, former Homeland Security head Michael Chertoff has a major conflict of interest when it comes to selling the US government the full body scanners now being loudly protested in our airports.

If the conflict pans out to be the scandal it now seems to be, President Obama will be in for criticism as well. Didn't anyone tell Mr. Obama from the get-go that retaining certain of the Bush-Cheney administration's staffers and lackeys was a very poor idea which would eventually bring him lots of political flack?

Then again, if you're anything like me, you think the highly praised 'peaceful transition' and baton-passing of American presidents every four years is another way of saying that the power elite's long-desired global take over is proceeding undercover and quite unnoticed as planned with the majority of we-the-people none the wiser. Old boss and new boss are virtually the same boss, m'peops.

Ahh, I remember the heady days of March 2006 when I posted the sunrise version of Michael Chertoff's natal chart showing his natal North Node conjoining US natal Pluto, and his Chiron at the POLITICAL POWER degree (18Cap) where the illuminated duo of Uranus and Neptune had their Great Conjunction/s of 1993.

And what is 18Cap's shadow side expression? "Smug or strong-armed paternalism," states Marc Edmund Jones in The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.

The post of 2006 also mused over Chertoff's possible loss of his HoSec czarship, but of course that turned out to be only a mirage created from the fumes that waft from the swamp of Washington DC to keep the savages manageable.

Inauguration 2009: Pluto/Chiron = Midheaven

Today as I organized my papers, charts, magazines, and Astrology books, I ran across a copy of Dell Horoscope Magazine from December 2002 with an article on Chiron authored by Canadian astrologer Roderick Benns.

A tidbit within the article caught my Political Astrology eye, for it intimately concerns the Inauguration 2009 horoscope's Midheaven (Mc), the Goal-Aspiration Point of any horoscope.

Here I quote Mr. Benns' analysis of the midpoint picture Pluto/Chiron = Mc, which was in effect on January 20, 2009 noon at the Capitol Building in Washington DC, with noon being the official time that an old administration ends and a new one begins. In this case, we speak, of course, of the presidency of Barack Obama and of the status (10th house) of the United States of America...

"Pluto/Chiron = Mc: status in life challenged or wounded by necessary transformation of perspective."

For comparison, Bush Inauguration 2001 had Pluto/Chiron @ 19Sag02 from the Pluto-Moon-Chiron line-up in 8th house of Transformation, Death, Debt, and Big Business which gave us: Pluto/Chiron = Moon (we-the-people); his 2005 Inauguration had Pluto/Chiron @ 10Cap21 showing the oppression-plutocracy duo's midpoint as it progressed in transit closer to US Inaugural Mc in the 26/27 degree range of Capricorn...a process well-described by Astrology.

January 20, 2009

(Also at Mc in Inauguration 2009's chart - Mars/Jupiter = Mc: opportunity for success; growth by using all forces or energy available. Tyl; Munkasey. Of course, US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx is at Mc as well with natal Mercury Rx at Ic; Mercury/Pluto = persuasion; propaganda; deep perception; intelligence activities; communications satellites; political talk which offers disruptive changes.)

Now the world-bank-engineered Financial Collapse 2008 has certainly brought a new perspective to most Americans concerning our nation's place in the world (which is what the 10th house is all about.) But why is America's collapse deemed to be necessary? As part of an agenda now 'marching' the planet toward a New World Order (sometimes referred to as a 'new economic world order'.)

That's why we hear many hints of currency collapse and devaluation in the news these days which have big implications for the US dollar losing its place as the global reserve currency. And 2011 seems to be a pivotal year, if my astrological studies (and those of others) are correct.

So here's a previous post with famous quotes concerning the NWO and a link to one-world-government promoter David Rockfeller's statement about how we're being "marched" toward it; this describes a very long-term process.

But no, a so-called NWO is not a given, folks, at least not in the form they wish: totalitarian control and global serfdom for the people after 'population control' (genocide) has been accomplished on a scale we cannot now imagine. This will leave more natural resources for the survivors, as you may know - the select few the power elite deem worthy.

All of this NWO madness is one of the main reasons I spend many hours blogging in complimentary fashion while hoping that a few readers will pass around the info so that all may have a chance to become aware of the false reality the power elite has created to keep our attention diverted from what they're up to - and their ploy very much includes the entertainment industry and its decades-long lowering of our moral standards.

After all, TV didn't put 'Survivor' (as in, survival of the fittest, an obvious shout-out to Darwin's theory) on the air years ago and call it a 'hit' for nothing.

For as former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt informed us - and a truism followed by this blog's populist slant...

"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

~:~

More instructive quotes for America 2010/2011 from FDR who obviously, unlike most of today's politicians, knew the difference between man made laws and the natural laws of the universe:

But while they prate of economic laws, men and women are starving. We must lay hold of the fact that economic laws are not made by nature. They are made by human beings.

Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.

Confidence...thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.

Don't forget what I discovered that over ninety percent of all national deficits from 1921 to 1939 were caused by payments for past, present, and future wars.

Here is my principle: Taxes shall be levied according to ability to pay. That is the only American principle.

Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.

I am neither bitter nor cynical but I do wish there was less immaturity in political thinking.

I believe that in every country the people themselves are more peaceably and liberally inclined than their governments.

It is an unfortunate human failing that a full pocketbook often groans more loudly than an empty stomach.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I do not look upon these United States as a finished product. We are still in the making.

Rep. Alan Grayson on tax cuts for the rich (video)



Thank goodness for Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) who shares his ideas for what the rich can do with the extra $83,000 they'll each pocket if the Republicans get their way extending tax cuts for the rich.

Sometimes I wonder if the Americans who put the GOP back in control (to the extent that they are) in the November midterms 2010 won't live to regret it. And other times I know they will.

And in spite of the shortcomings of the Democratic Party (and they are many), my reaction now is similar to my reaction when Bush was 'elected' then re-elected: what in the world could you possibly have been thinking?

George H. W. Bush to receive a Medal of FREEDOM?

While I'd be more likely to issue Bush Sr a warrant for his arrest, The White House is awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 15 honorees and one of them is New World Order promoter and implementer, George H. W. Bush.

What Orwellian madness is this? Well, obviously, the one-world-government types have infiltrated every public and private institution and are recognizing their own so that the world may admire them (except I don't.) Perhaps this qualifies as something of history rewrite for the re-education of future generations.

While he's still 'with us' (in a manner of speaking), let's consider the natal horoscope of George H. W. Bush who was born on June 12, 1924 at 11:45 am edt in Milton, MA. His birth data comes from many sources: see his Astro-Databank page for details and chart image.

Here is a list of Bush Sr's planetary placements with a few additional factors:

ASC 11Vir09 conjoins Fixed Star Zosma, one of the 'victim/savior' stars; MC 7Gem39 (transiting Midas has been conjunct his MC for a while now as is asteroid Pan; US natal Uranus conjoins his n MC); n MC = n Uranus/NN (Uran/NN = radical political activity): desire to bring plans to fruition with others; assurances of help from those who share your destiny; professional recognition; teamwork paying off.

Sun 21Gem22 in 10th house of Public Status; Sun conjoins US natal Mars so his ego has been intimately tied up with US military and might.

Moon 17Lib56 in 2nd house with tr Saturn approaching n Moon which is a sobering and possibly depressing time; this man has had his Uranus Return so at his advanced age of 86, vulnerability to health problems increases, and the wife may suffer a setback of some kind); note: tr Jupiter and Uranus will be entering his 8th house w/ 8th cusp 5Ari08; either planet may cause major health setbacks with Jupiter's expansion tendency and Uranus causing sudden disruptions and separations.

Mercury 29Tau24 in 9th house will have November 21, 2010's Full Moon 29Tau18 spotlighting it and timing a culmination of some kind; this is a 29th degree of crisis.

Venus 17Can27 Rx is in a wide conjunction with n Pluto 11Can21 with Venus/Pluto giving a strong will, passions, and possible sexual indulgences; his n Pluto was precisely conjoined by tr NN 11Can56 when JFK was shot in Dallas - when GHWB was CIA Director, and the revolutionary pair of tr Uranus 9Vir49 and tr Pluto 14Vir04 were snugged around his n ASC = Uranus/Pluto: an enhanced ability to focus on the kind of world which must grow out of today into tomorrow; reading how restless others are with the status quo; application of force.

Mars 25AQ28 in 6th house of Health is being undermined by tr Neptune which indicates increased difficulties with physical activities, deception and confusion reign, and fraud turns up on the menu; Mars conjoins n SN = a loner who acts upon decisions that disregard the opinions or circumstances of others, lashes out in anger which antagonizes others and causes opposition, and has desires which he acts upon and which tend to be out of harmony with societal standards.

Jupiter 14Sag11 Rx in 4th house, strong in his own sign, and Rx = 'a maverick' holed up in the comfy digs of the family compound.

Saturn 25Lib50 in 2nd house, in wide conjunction with n Moon which gives an ambitious streak and tends to identify emotionally with material wealth; this pair may describe his marriage to Barbara Bush who's only one year younger than her husband but has tended to look older than him through the years;

Uranus 21Pis26 in 7th house and square his n Sun = eccentricity, erratic behavior, original but often impractical ideas (like a world government?), a dislike of routine, and strong self-will which can become a fraternal group member and a leader of organizations.

Neptune 18Leo08 in 12th house of Politics along with NN 25Leo14; Neptune/NN in Politics and Business = leadership that neglects the growth and progress demands of the population or important groups; spies (CIA) or terrorists (9/11? JFK?); drug policies which avoid important concerns (the original Bush fortune, I've read, was founded upon the opium trade), and ill-adapted and inadequate hospital or medical systems; scandals caused by foreign concerns (Munkasey; other midpoints by Tyl and Ebertin.)

Bush's Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Series is the 16 South: 'issues of wasted energy or misdirected motivation especially when dealing with groups' which last manifested in 1996, next: 2014. (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Interestingly, Bush Sr shares his Sun Gem-Moon Lib combo with another old cuss, Henry Kissinger, who so famously propagandized us with, "Henceforth the adequacy of any military establishment will be judged by its ability to keep the peace."

Really? Then this must be a reference to their version of a 'NWO peace'.

So there! If you didn't know anything at all about G.H.W. Bush's natal horoscope and psyche, you know a smidgeon now. If only someone could please explain to me how this relic of the NWO, with its agenda that intends totalitarian harm and chaos toward society, can possibly deserve a Presidential Medal of FREEDOM?

Anyone?

Senators call for end of TSA full body scans/pat downs (video)

November 17, 2010



Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-Hunterdon, Warren) and Senator James Beach (D-Camden) today announced they will present resolutions to the Senate and Assembly calling on the U.S. Congress to end TSA screening procedures requiring full body scans and pat downs at U.S. airports Their action comes in response to widespread concerns over privacy and radiation, as well as reports of inappropriate conduct by TSA agents during the screening process.

Excerpt:

“The pursuit of security should not force Americans to surrender their civil liberties or basic human dignity at a TSA checkpoint,” said Doherty. “Subjecting law-abiding American citizens to naked body scans and full body pat downs is intolerable, humiliating, vulnerable to abuse, and is fast becoming a disincentive to travel. Particularly concerning to us is the fact that physical searches result in children being touched in private areas of the body. Terrorists hate America because of the freedoms upon which this great nation was built. By implementing these screening measures, the TSA has already handed a victory to those who seek to destroy our freedoms.”

As George Orwell prophetically wrote...

"They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening."

We must be careful what they're grasping. Here's a man who resisted.

On November 18, 2010, both Venus and Jupiter direct station and begin moving forward. In Astrology, both planets relate to financial issues and when they turn direct, money can begin to flow. Highly recommended reading is Julie Demboski's article Venus Speaks for more astro-details.

Lisbon summit Nov 19-20, 2010: a Pluto/NN meeting

"Military power can't cure everything"! Now who let that cat of the bag?

Because the people knew it, you and I knew it...but are the power elite are just now figuring it out?

Well, glory-be! NATO's 'new strategy' is to be "unveiled" at the Lisbon summit later this week while powerful, subversive Pluto - the world's secretive string-puller supreme - continues 'meeting' with North Node (their exact conj was on Nov 9) with both now @ '4 Capricorn' = "A Party Entering a Large Canoe" = ORDERING...

positive expression: exceptional capacity for bringing all proper relationships to a point of effectiveness in any given exigency of everyday affairs;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: inability to get along with anybody.

The Illumination Point of this degree (to glean more hidden info - this degree may be quite telling) is '4 Cancer' which is America's natal Venus degree (rounded up from 3Can+) so we find that:

'4Can' = A Cat Arguing with a Mouse" = JUSTIFICATION...

pos: a gift for persuading others to accept the motives of self and to co-operate with its ends; (President Obama in Lisbon? jc);

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

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

Transiting SN now conjoining US natal Venus indicates separation in relationships as the Tail of the Dragon (SN) swipes across our lady Venus, a planet which on one level represents America herself as evidenced by our copper-lined Statue of Liberty. As previously noted, correct evaluations are difficult to come by these days but hopefully, Venus moving forward after Nov 18 will bring improvements.

And as mentioned in a previous post, the transiting pair of Pluto and North Node (of the Moon) has a treaties vibe along with other flavors, such as:

Treaties involving the exchange of secretive or clandestine data; breakdowns in security or treaties due to the actions of other persons; people who may not have the country's or business's best interests in mind; violent or criminal persons entering a country secretly at any given opportunity; sewage or waste compacts (nuclear waste? where to put it all - and the US wants to build more - two here in north GA! And Georgia Power wants us to pay an addittional $11 a month now - in this recession - for projects they promise to build in the future! jc)

(Pluto/NN from: Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, Michael Munkasey; any, all, or none may apply.)

Sounds as if a summit breakdown may be afoot in Lisbon such as with the recent Copenhagen climate summit.

Concerning NATO's Lisbon summit, Der Spiegel has published an interesting interview with German diplomat Hans-Friedrich von Ploetz. Be aware that, as usual, political propaganda may peek through.

As a chilling teaser, here's an excerpt from the Ploetz interview which for best reading may require a 1984 gong banging in the back of our minds; Herr Ploetz speaks:

"After a period of arrogance, humility has surprisingly returned to NATO. Even if the alliance is more militarily powerful than anyone else, we don't want to be the world's policeman. Though military power is indispensable, it can't cure everything. For that reason, we're developing a new security concept and implementing it with suitable partners."

They "don't want to be the world's policeman"! Really? "Humility"? Is this a joke? Perhaps not, but if so, it is very surprising and hardly credible.

Ploetz goes on the speak of Madeleine Albright's role in NATO's security/weapons rigamarole with NATO (Apr 4, 1949) touting a "NATO renaissance" now influenced by a supposedly humble streak suddenly appearing in NATO's DNA so that it's now possible to enjoy a renaissance "in terms of confidence-building measures, disarmament, and arms control."

Now whose arms will be under NATO's control isn't clear to me; whose confidence is in need of building? dunno; from whom will 'disarmament' be expected? Hmmm...from all sides would be this peacenik mom's ideal. Such a dreamer!

Naturally, the War in Afghanistan will be on the Lisbon summit agenda, too, as the US continues to pretend that arming a population in the Middle East with weapons which may end up in the arsenals of anyone possessing the strength to commandeer them. (These people are crazy.)

Plus, it's being reported that Russia-NATO relations are on the mend after being frozen during the war in Georgia, with the US perhaps acting as the foot-stomping pouter in the bunch. The summit will be held in Lisbon, Portugal on Nov 19-20 of this week.

On Sunday Nov 21, 2010, a day after the summit ends (one assumes), a Full Moon perfects upon a 29th crisis-degree at 5:27:18 pm UT +00:00 in Lisbon:

Full Moon 29Tau18 = '30Tau' = "A Peacock Parading on an Ancient Lawn" which always reminds me of India with its symbol of the peacock (see illustration below); with Sun 29Sco18 (the Illumination Point of the the Full Moon's degree), I am reminded of US Inaugural Moon 2009 @ 29Sco45...'30Sco' = "A Halloween Jester."

And of course, the stalled-in-Senate START treaty between the US and Russia is what Mr. Obama wants ratified during the current lame duck session of Congress - but not if Republicans have anything to to do with it.

So with this weekend's Full Moon being the culmination phase of the symbolic seeds planted two weeks prior at the New Moon (New Moon 13Sco40 conjunct Venus Rx on Nov 5 or 6; Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Pisces turn Direct on Thursday Nov 18), we experience and marvel at the synchronous 'As Above, So Below' collusion between events on Earth and the lunations and stars in the sky.

And if humility really has 'returned' to NATO (when did they have it before?), good may accrue for all humanity. Yet given the way these bossy cusses and social tinkerers have handled themselves so far, the question of this potential for moderation will have to remain open-ended around Stars Over Washington for now.

Rs not focused on ethics "at all"

Quelle relief!

For a while there I thought perhaps both old and new Republican congress members might focus on ethics during the 2011 session of Congress. But no frets around here, or on Capitol Hill for the GOP transition team leader assures us that, "We're not focused in on the ethics side of things at all."

Whew! That was close.

Except for one thing: if you've checked out my previous post from earlier today and have heard the Max Igan videos it contains, you may agree that addressing corruption in government and holding criminals accountable is the only sensible and efficient answer to engineering a we-the-people 'clawback' of our country based on Peaceful Resistance to the power elite's totalitarian one-world-government plans.

And when better to hold government and business criminals and their enablers accountable than in the midst of America's Saturn Return (which this time is a three-fer: exact on December 3, 2010, and on March 22 and August 28, 2011)?

For our ethics-promoting timekeeper Saturn's 29/30-year cycle says that this is precisely what it's time to do.

Astro-note: no time this weekend just past to post on it but isn't it grand how Neptune's recent Direct Station has synchronized with hostages and prisoners being released from the web of their captors? As you know, nebulous Neptune rules webs, networks, veils, and other hidden, sticky, and entangling stuff!

Finding Your Path through the false reality (Max Igan videos)

There's much I could say about each of these Max Igan videos in which he covers Finding Your Path, dharma~karma, The Matrix or false reality, Facing the Shadow, Money, Peaceful Resistance, Abundance, the Great Awakening (from the false reality?), and much more on the personal, physical, and cosmic levels of existence.

And since I'm eager for you to check them out (if you haven't), maybe I'll mosey back later on and add my 2 cents' worth. Or not. We're having storms in Georgia.

Note that the following content is of the sort that will reveal new understanding with each listening so don't be surprised if you experience this. All atrocities issue in some way from 'government' - worldly government, and a 'one world government' does not have to be accepted by the global population so please pass this presentation (and others you may know of) around to spread the word, for the crisis approaches. Yet fear is a weapon they wield against us - our pacificism is key to our success. Taking care of one another sends a Scr*w the Global Crime Syndicate message to the conspiring power elite, and I'm all for that.

The entire video presentation runs approximately 50 minutes and if you watch, I hope you appreciate Max Igan's p.o.v. for it is one I share.

Except for the reincarnation part! For as both of you may know, I lean toward Saturnian Astrology which sees genetics where Uranian Astrologers see past lives and do-overs. Instead, I believe that each and every soul - ever born, living, or those who will be born of this Earth - is unique to our Creator!

All the way down to the cellular level.

Now, Max Igan. If you direct your attention, it will be 50 minutes well worth your time:

The Fed's 'quantitative easing' made simple (video)



The Fed's wrong streak continues with even the high-stakes G-20 Summit nations agreeing that another round of 'quantitative easing' in the US is a bad economic idea - unless collapsing the global economy is your ultimate goal, Mr. Bernanke.

Why, many people (like myself) see the Fed's culpable clawprints on every financial bubble and collapse in history. Guess the Federal Reserve Bank's natal Sun/Pluto opposition foreshadows its future (now?) realignment which such an opposition promises as they vie for more power with the defensive-when-challenged energy of a Sun/Pluto opposition.


Many thanks to Alex D'Atria for sending along this excellent and instructive video. jc

~:~

Well, for both of you keeping up with the Fed's natal chart (Dec 23, 1913), its natal Sun/Pluto opposition (using '12:07:10 pm est' Capitol Building: 1Cap18/00Can05 Rx) has been under fire from transiting Pluto in early Capricorn - on one hand, conjoining the Fed's natal Sun, on the other hand, Pluto opposing natal Pluto which describes the grand proportions of one power locking into a no-compromise struggle with another power - with the rest of us and our budgets caught in the middle.

Pluto to natal Sun shows the recent ploys of the Fed to gain more power and control though the 'no-compromise struggle' of tr Pluto in Cap seems to be interfering with those plans. One thing is certain: where powerful, subversive Pluto lurks and catalyzes, complete transformation will be the ultimate result.

And now, here's a limerick I published in September 2008 concerning
Mr. Bernanke
; the post contains a link to a news article of the day in which the IMF was threatening to peruse the Fed's books...wonder what happened to that little endeavor? Is it Pluto perusing Pluto?

Senate Banking Committee hears from bankers = 'stormy proceedings' 11.16.10

Come along as I check to see what's rising in the chart for November 16, 2010 at 2:30 pm est on Capitol Hill when the Senate Banking Committee is scheduled to open and hear testimony from the president of Bank of America Home Loans and the CEO of Chase Home Lending concerning their shady home mortgage practices which have had such dire effects upon the US economy.

For when an astrologer finds an exact time of an event, it's like waving a red cape in front of a you-know-what, right?

Nov 16, 2010 2:30 pm est Capitol Building, DC

ASC 2Ari06 with asteroid Hermes 2:07 Rx rising so apparently there's a magician or a mystic in the House, but is it '2 Aries' or '3 Aries' that's the degree famous for leading nowhere or having no intention of following through? Obviously, a lack of follow-through would not be surprising with US senators so snugly inside the banking industry's big pockets...as 'they say' - the best Congress money can buy.

At Goal Point (Midheaven) is the transiting Pluto/NN conjunction still at its conjunction degree of November 9, 2010 (3Cap38) and with Mc @ 1Cap09, we have a midpoint picture to behold relating to The Aspiration of the Senate hearing...

Pluto/Mc = NN: the importance of connections; memberships in groups which help you achieve your purposes; getting rid of habits that retard progress; the power of influence over others; the desire to gain leadership by force within a community (by foreclosing? -jc); leadership of a group of people.

Now chart-ruler Mars 14Sag11 and Mercury 11Sag30 (11Sag+ = the degree of the Great Conjunction of the disenfranchising plutocracy duo, Pluto and Chiron, on Dec 30, 1999) apply to conjunction which is the only applying aspect of Mars. If we use the Sibly natal chart (5:10 pm LMT) for America, we have the midpoint picture from this post's title...

Mercury/Mars = n ASC: stormy proceedings; a shrewd attitude; communicating with others who have an angry demeanor. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Sun 24Sco20 is in the 8th house of Debt and Credit; the changeable Moon 28Pis16 has just risen and is in 12th house of Large Institutions (that are supposedly 'too big to fail'), Karma, Self-Undoing and Politics, after having sailed past the ongoing Jupiter/Uranus conjunction 23Pis30 Rx and 26Pis30 Rx, respectively.

The Senate Banking Committee hearing opens during a Venus Hour, but Venus is Rx yet strengthening @ 27Lib45 as she prepares to turn Direct Nov 18; here, in 7th house; controlling manager Saturn 13Lib12 is in 7th house as well and about to return to America's natal Saturn degree (14Lib48) on December 3, 2010 (#1 of 3.)

Venus has to do with evaluations which is proving difficult in the real estate and banking markets especially with the Robo-Signing scandal on the menu (a hearing on those issues is scheduled for Nov 18, 2010, the day of Venus' direct station! Perhaps some headway can be made as the evaluations planet moves forward - plus, moneybags Jupiter turns direct then, too, and heads back to AP, our US natal Ic of Home and Domestic Scene.)

Also in the hidden 12th house is the Neptune/Chiron conjunction, still affecting US natal Moon in Aquarius bwo of deception, fraud, waste, toxic assets, homelessness, and potential flooding. 'Flooded with debt' is a sad testament to this transit's ill effects, and yes, Neptune moves slowly so it took years for the loss and sense of despair to envelope US consumers; yet Neptune/Chiron's close link with spirituality may bring us relief.)

Moon reaches Aries Point (00Ari00) on Nov 16, but not until 5:59 pm est (with the hearing probably over for the day), and the 'hidden square' between Moon (the people; publicity) and Mars may hold more sway than first appears...

Moon SQ Mars = resistance to compromise due to fear that others will take advantage of you; emotional outbursts; contrariness when dealing with others; forceful demands shows a double standard which irks others. (Planets in Aspect, Robert Pelletier.)

Well, I'd say the 'take advantage of you' part has already been accomplished by the US Congress, the White House, SCOTUS, and our glaringly corrupt banking and mortgage industries yet I hope that some redress for the American people comes out of the Senate hearing's political theater...matinee at 2:30 pm.

Lame Duck Congress: Sun Scor-Moon Pisc 11.15.10

Looking at a chart for November 15, 2010 10:00 am est Capitol Building Washington DC we see 1Cap57 rising with NN 3Cap36 and Pluto 3Cap45 in tow; Hour of Mars 13Sag19; Mercury 9Sag48 out-of-bounds and conjunct Fixed Star Antares (obsessed with success); it's a First Quarter (crisis in action) phase; there are no planetary patterns (T-Squares, Grand Trines, etc.)

Mercury OOBs may represent the new representatives and the change (Mercury) of members from the Nov 2 midterm elections since Mercury isn't in-sync with the other actors (planets) yet.

If I had to sum up in two words this horoscope and Lame Duck Session 2010 they'd be emotion and power. Sun 23Sco08 conjoins Fixed Star Agena (honors, high status, a good organizer, sensuality, scandal, gossip, sarcasm, cleverness, success with the masses - A. Louis, Horary Plain & Simple); Moon 14Pis08 conjoins Fixed Star Achernar (empathy, humanity, patience, success, religion, philosophy, but also 'crisis at the end of the river' which may relate to flooding or other Neptunian crises such as debt and fraud.)

At Midheaven, the Goal Point of the chart, are two Fixed Stars: Spica (potential for brilliance) and Arcturus (a different approach); we know the November 2 midterms will shoosh into Congress new political players but whether brilliance will shine forth from the infusion remains to be seen: a 9th house Saturn 13Lib05 parallels another Fixed Star that's not so lovely: Zuben Eschemali (negative social reform.)

'Negative social reform' is what this populist/common-gooder American would have to call the Saturnian austerity cuts being handed down from highly paid politicians who enabled the banking industry to steal trillions of dollars from the US economy and private pension funds, some of which US banks sent to foreign bankers and investors. Congress and Wall Street were indebted to foreign entities and we-the-people paid. It seems our current 'deficit hawks' suffer from a bad case of amnesia.

But aren't we nice to help out the banksters and fraudsters so intent upon our ruination?

Venus (valuations; smaller amounts of money; relationships; attraction) 27Lib52 is about to cross Nov 15's Mc and is still retrograde until November 18, 2010 (Venus' station direct degree = 27Lib40, so she's readying to flip-flop now. Does Venus represent Nancy Pelosi?)

Well, I realize that the Lame Duck Congress may not open for business precisely at 10:00 am on Monday - maybe the members will sleep in - thus, the horoscope I'm using here is symbolic. Still, the Sun Scor-Moon Pisc blend remains in effect on Monday and may yield some clues to the atmosphere - not just of the day - but of Lame Duck Session 2010 itself.

The Water-Water blend of Sun Scor-Moon Pisc indicates a dedication to hard work, emotional intensity, the able use of shrewd strategies and subterfuge, and a deep sense of commitment to a larger vision. This is the 'Jekyll and Hyde' combo torn between passion and compassion...Dracula vs The Good Samaritan.

With Scor-Pisc, there's a love of the mysterious or mysticism (perfect for that Masonic Temple we call the Capitol Building but I understand that the creepy crypt once in the cellar under the rotunda is now history) with a talent for seeing through the deeper motives of others; lack of objectivity may be problematic; love, drugs (including alcohol), and other addictions are potentials with this combination which has an ability to capture people's imaginations and 'come back fighting'.

Images for Integration: Madame Curie works for the Red Cross whilst dedicating herself to the mysteries of radioactivity...Long John Silver, with ruthless charm, becomes a successful entrepreneur. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Radioactivity conjures images of nukes and plutonium, of course, and 'Red Cross' points to the Rosicrucians who are part of the bossy 'one world government' brigade; silver and gold are an old argument and obsession in Washington.

Now, if you're wondering what famous folk share the Sun Scor-Moon Pisc blend natally, here's a brief list: Hillary Clinton, Grace Kelly, Martin Scorsese, Bela Lugosi, astronomer Charles Kowal (discoverer of Chiron), and Robert Louis Stevenson and Marie Curie, as hinted in the Images above.
