The YOD of a Senate Test Vote 7.31.11

"Code Red Day for Many on Wall Street" --David Gregory on MTP July 31, 2011

by Jude Cowell

Well, it's been "Code Red" for a majority of Americans for years now. And unless we hear otherwise, the US Senate is set to vote today at 1:00 pm edt on the Democratic version of a draconian spending cut bill that will allow a raising of the US debt ceiling, another act in the Political Default Theater on Capitol Hill meant to usher in by power elites a new form of government over the heads and deepest wishes of the American people.

Even a mini-Congress (aka, a 'Super Congress') may emerge out of this debt-default squabble of ideologies with a sinister-flavored Solar Eclipse occurring in November 2011.

Astrology: July 31, 2011 1:00 pm edt Capitol Hill DC

At 1:00 pm edt in Washington DC, rising is a 29th degree of crisis: 29Libr42 which makes Venus 3Leo48 (still within orb of President Obama's natal Mercury 2:20) the ruler of the chart and the senatorial test vote; Venus conjoins MC 4Leo48, with Sun 8Leo09 approaching Mr. Obama's natal Sun on August 4th ('13Leo'.)

Our economy worsens as I type, according to political talking heads on TV so let's take a peek at the horoscope.

Telling us how things will proceed from this dramatic test vote are the applying aspects of evaluating Venus, chart-ruler, which are as follows:

1. inconjunct Chiron (0A27; Mr. Obama's Chiron Return has begun--5 'hits' in total)
2. trine Uranus (0A35; in Aries, Uranus = radical Utopians--Ebertin)
3. conjunct MC (0A49)
4. inconj Pluto (1A35; the dragon; global crime syndicate; ruling elite; the Pope)
5. square Jupiter (5A08; money and finances, gurus, preachers, generals, and the GOP blocking--squaring--events)

As you see, the infamous 'bumpy ride' may be little softened by today's proposed test vote even though the US Senate of 'philosophers' and deep thinkers (Republican Tom Coburn and Democrat John Kerry--if he can keep from interrupting himself into ditherhood--are about it as near the cream of the crop, as near as i can tell) are the American people's last and best hope for solution.

Venus square Jupiter indicates *carelessness when attending to responsibilities (a studied carelessness, in this case), generosity shown but only for ulterior motives, and a lack of perspective when setting priorities. The favoring of the top 2% income "earners" is an obvious problem as the North Node (the public) insists on a fairer balancing--of income ratio in America, of accounts, and of societal changes to favor we-the-people.

Venus inconjunct (quincunx) Pluto is significant with its 'adjustment' vibe, an overburdening in financial matters, and all sorts of negative elements creeping into this crisis situation; a lack of responsibility and a general sense of unaccountability adds confusion to the endeavor as the wrong people are made to pay for what others should. (Ex: social welfare for the rich continues as their private debts are collectivized upon the backs of we-the-people--the monarchists ride again!)

(Other aspects have been previously discussed so I'll not repeat myself here.)

Drastic Cutting of Our Social Program Spending Will Ruin the Economy...but make Wall Streeters and foreign investors exultant!

Some arguments for allowing the balancing now being called for by Fixed Star Ras Alhague (conjunct NN = destiny; future direction) are that it is the morally upright thing to do (as opposed to setting millions of people up to suffer and die while fatcats get richer), and because we'd like to keep a decent semblance of our United States of America without 'radical Utopian' (Uranus 4Ari23 Rx in 5th house of Risk-Taking and Gambling--we're utter fools if we let them usurp this country more than before!) wolves over-running the henhouse and fundamentally transforming this nation into a wild-west style Zoo of Zealots.

At 1:00 pm, there is a planetary pattern called a Mystic Rectangle ('practical mysticism'--our Masonic Capitol Building and White House--secret rituals are afoot)) in the air over Capitol Hill involving Mercury, Pluto, Mars, and Chiron.

Mars/Chiron = sacred warrior energy (ex: Knights of Malta, Templars, Sionist Rosicrucians, and other hidden hands); Mercury/Pluto = propaganda, the surveillance state, and cruel thoughts/plans, political talk offering abrupt changes, business or transportation secrets, hidden hands, etc.

Constricting Saturn 12Lib20 is in the Behind-the-Scenes 12th house of Politics, working on a deal of some kind, perhaps Harry's Reid's plan, or some version of it that Senator Coburn can swallow. (US Saturn Return #3 of 3 will occur on August 28, 2011, a key date for our national affairs.)

Yes, the debt-default situation depends upon 'Old Guard' statesmanlike senators (if we still have any) besting the radical Tea Party wing of the GOP...old v young, status quo v a radical reformist brand of sabotage using a tactic I have to call Treason being perpetrated by those insistent on collapsing America to make an ideological point (and grab the helm and 'rebuild anew upon ruins'--ruins that we're in process of seeing them create!

YOD, aka, Finger of God, a Fated Turning

But the US economy's crisis-critical condition is shown most clearly in the YOD pattern which has been in effect for some days now--Pluto sextile Chiron at its base, and her pointing to an apex Venus (and MC) denoting alienated persons who are awkwardly out-of-touch with the rest of society. Apex Venus in a YOD configuration does show much inner reflection and analysis as people are driven toward the cultivation--either positively or negatively--of collective values.

The destined crossroads of the YOD indicates a fated turning point which may be catalyzed (by typical catalyst Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries--the Tea Party freely admits that without its forcing behavior--Uranus = behavior--Washington would not be having this 'debate' now) by sudden realization (Uranus = The Awakener; The Witness) of an encompassing social goal of great magnitude.

Having a decided influence on the value systems of others and the reorganization of the US government are part of the ambitious drive of this apex Venus with the plutocracy's (Pluto/Chiron) sextile at the base of their operations along with the wealth that Pluto/Chiron implies and which backs this movement to over throw the US government and toss us backward to Pluto/Chiron feudalism.

As Far As America Can Expand

As you know, America's Secondary Progressed Full Moon (4Vir10--4Pis10) timed our nation's pinnacle of success in the larger/outer world on December 24, 2008
(click to view chart with its own YOD, and a Hard Rectangle pattern, too.

We're straining against those two patterns now rather than accepting the karmic, natural law that even America must honor in the end (karma to me is reaping what was sown.) Our government's traditional arrogance and preening overreach makes that difficult thus setting up the scenario for a fall from grace which supports the tragedy of having a 10th house Saturn whose financial lessons are now being learned the hard way yet with the wrong people paying for our mistakes and the wealthy pulling another 'fast one', the US will buckle without the middle class prevailing.)

So if federal spending is rolled back in 2011 to a specific date and a more sensible amount, a date earlier in 2008 would do enough of a trick to buck up our nation for now--putting us on a realistic path--so that the more intimate details for cutting, spending, and taxing may be discussed with cooler heads prevailing than the current rhetorical flourishes of fools, knaves, and corporate-manipulated newbies in Congress who now threaten a majority of the American people with certain demise and despair.

Raise the debt ceiling and accept humbly the lowering of our government's AAA credit
rating, I'm not happy to say, for we've been allowed more credit than we deserve for quite some time. 'Coming down to earth with a bump' is difficult, but isn't all bad if you can learn its Saturnian lessons and plan for them.

My wish is that we take the fork in the (YOD) road that reins in America's out-of-balance budget, curtails fraud (if only Congress would return to its oversight duties, both Houses--Saturn Return!), and identifies and reduces waste wherever found, while supporting the American people whose taxes on earnings need a huge jobs-creation boost in order to continue to 'make happen' the 'New Atlantis'/corporate enterprise we call America--and all for the sake of our children who deserve much better than Washington politicians have been serving them in this, the over-glamorized, fearmongering New Millennium.


*'carelessness'? Perhaps some of our erstwhile debt negotiators took part in July 2011's "Cremation of Care" ritual at Bohemian Grove, CA the second half of July. The rest of us are the ones with the worries as the power elite play freaky esoteric games with our futures and our nation while continuing to rob us blind.

A "Super Congress" will Kill the US Congress (video)

Planning now to write a post on the November 2011 Solar Eclipse which unfortunately for those of us who wish to see America continue as a sovereign nation, relates to the topic Mr. Jones discusses in this 8-minute video of his show.

Plus, transit Neptune in very early Pisces will conjoin Congress' natal Pluto (power) soon and is within orb now...more on that later for much of the current debt-talks-default tiff in Washington is leading up to a constitutional crisis on the way as planned by those who plan such things.

US economy slowed, Congress keeps grandstanding

Now here's an example of why a new poll shows the American public's approval rate of the 'work' Congress is doing is down to 6%. Makes me wonder what that 6% sees that the rest of us don't!

NPR BREAKING NEWS: Economy Slowed Sharply In First Half Of 2011

The Commerce Department says the economy expanded only 1.3 percent in the April-June period -- its weakest pace since the recession ended. High gas prices and scant income gains forced Americans to sharply pull back on spending.

More at NPR.

Guess the GOP plan to regain the White House in 2012 is working against President Obama as it undermines the entire nation. A program to repair our crumbling infrastructure would greatly improve our unemployment problems, raise )tax) revenue, and put consumer monies into the economy which extending tax cuts for the rich can never do since they only pocket the change with a gleeful chuckle.

The story above shows some of the effects of the Republican Party--Tea Party alliance (such as it is) yet I suspect that the Freemasons who dressed as Indians and tossed pounds of tea into Boston Harbor wouldn't be as proud of what the current crop of slef-interested varmints are doing in 2011 as they might imagine in those wildest visionary dreams of theirs.

With today's Moon void-of-course (VOC) while in Cancer, it will be surprising if any real progress is made until tomorrow. And in effect are the twop midpoints we've discussed these last few weeks, each with one of the planets of the Enlightenment, aka, the Age of Reason. They are also the signature planets of the New World Order which Washington is trying so hard now to birth...any, all, or none may apply:

Jupiter/Neptune (the speculators, wastrels, and grand schemers) = Uranus (in Aries, the Utopians): reality v imagination; coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation (ya think? which some of us have warned about financial breakdown all through Dubya's 8 years of spending, illegal wars, unfunded programs, and tax cuts for the rich. And here we are.)

Jupiter/NN = Neptune: indecision or vacillation; becoming sober again; disappointment.

Stocks are falling, too, so I guess the Utopians are having their NWO way!

President Obama will speak soon, says C-SPAN, from the White House (aka, the White Lodge) and from underneath a portrait of George Washington, one of our many Freemason presidents. I'll listen to what he has to say but only hope he'll manage to straighten out the sorry state that Washington politicians have brought upon the American people who have already sacrificed so much.

Mr. Obama begins speaking at 10:36 am edt for those who wish to set up a horoscope...first word: bipartisan. He wants a plan he can sign by Tuesday so, Good luck to us all.

Horoscope: EU Flag w July 28 2011 transits

Is Something Bizarre Going On in Washington DC?

by Jude Cowell

Yes, it is. And though it's hot as Hades in Georgia lately, like you I am snowed under with news and propaganda concerning the purposefully manufactured debt-deal-crisis/default-threat now being waged for the cameras, microphones, and the public in Washington DC. Personally I am not impressed for in Politics, if it happens, it was meant to happen--almost without exception!

And you know that impeaching President Obama is on their freaky take-over agenda.

Now disruptive planet Uranus is always cast as the rebel, the revolutionary, the catalyst, the Genius, and the Awakener, right? Well, with Ebertin cluing us in to the hidden identity of Uranus when in Mars-ruled Aries--as it was during Hitler's rise to power--as 'Utopians', I believe Utopians of the secret society kind are now in progress of completing a total coup and collapse of the US government and US financial system in which Financial Collapse 2008 played its role.

So I've set up a noon horoscope for the *EU--NWO Flag Unfurling and thought you might wish to view the chart with today's transits (noon) in Brussels (where The Beast of a Super-Computer has every one's data squirreled away for the luciferian-satanic New World Order elite to use however its directors will. We're not going to like it either.)

Meanwhile, with Speaker Boehner's plan to be voted on in the House today if he can muster enough troops, most of us feel America is at a 'bending or breaking point' (brittle Saturn v Uranus with controlling Pluto squaring them in a titanic T-Square for months, off and on....'brutality; harm through force majeure'--Ebertin.)

Will the American public be swayed toward the lesser of two evils--the Obama solution--to 'improve' our economic condition? How will the rest of the global economy behave if the US defaults on her legal debts and renegs on all the responsibilities which will have to be neglected because of Washington ideologues shoving their fanatic agenda onto our country? Most Washington politicians operate as the political arm of a larger globe-striding organization, I keep tellin' ya!

Plus, one reason I'm posting the EU--NWO Flag chart here is for my own future reference and I hope any Astrology buff reading this post will take the chart into consideration especially with such precarious conditions now affecting the European financial system along with that of the United States, and the world.

UPDATE August 3, 2011: economist Paul Krugman's NYT op-ed This Morning's Grim Eurothought is brief yet elucidating on the EU situation which is now being repeated from the past when financial crisis in Europe helped precipitate the 1929 Crash in the US. He makes this post's case! And a new study of the chart can shed light on the baked-in weaknesses now causing trouble in the EU and hamstringing efforts at financial improvement. OF course, a look at the natal chart of the EU itself is also instructive.

Original post continues here:

Above, you see a noon chart for the European Union (EU)--slash 'NWO'--Flag Unfurled enterprise set for July 14, 1989 Brussels, Belgium. This was the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution's Bastille Day and was probably chosen for just this reason. Occult symbolism applies.

Please enlarge the horoscope by clicking and perhaps you can read my chicken-scratch notes since blogging time is rather limited today for I have lots to do.

ASC 27Vir34 MC 26Gem52 conjunct Jupiter; Hour Jupiter; NN of Destiny = US natal Moon (we-the-people); 1st quarter (crisis in action phase); **pile-up in structural, governmental, business-oriented Capricorn of Uranus 2:34, Saturn 9:45, and Neptune 10:42 in the 4th H (Foundation) of the noon chart. Two midpoint pictures now form in July 2011 through the efforts of transiting Pluto the Powerful--you see them listed on the chart, bottom left:

1989 Saturn/Uranus = 2011 Pluto: desire to overcome difficult situations through extraordinary efforts; brutality; concealing changes to activities (peep-eye, Capitol Hill! jc); drastic reforms in a previously liberal atmosphere (balancing the US budget on the backs of the ill, poor, children and the elderly?-- jc.)

As you see, tr Mars today conjoins 1989's Jupiter at MC which expands the part activist Mars is playing in events--monetary and social status may be improved if negative factors don't interfere; however, the temptation is to give people more credit than they deserve!

Oddly enough, 1989's Moon @ 29Sco44 was conjoined by US Inaugural Moon 2009--we-the-people during Mr. Obama's presidential Oath Taking...'30Sco' = "A Halloween Jester", a Sabian Symbol with all sorts of implications including that of Grand Master Templar Jacques Demolay whose untimely death by execution long ago seems to be revenged ad nauseum even now and which is marked through history, as some folk say, by the unlucky 'Friday the 13th' superstition.

As you see in 10th house, our current Solar Eclipse 9Can12 of July 1, 2011 is posited with its Cancerian emphases on democracy, power struggles, restrictions, inflexibility, money difficulties (conjunct US natal Sun and Jupiter), trade, commerce, and transport disturbances, real estate, food supplies and shortages (famine), homelessness, foreclosure, and refugee issues, and misfortune concerning buildings and property. Plus, Moon-ruled Cancer the Crab is the 'side-stepper'!

(One of the basic tenets of the 'Great Plan' or 'Secret Doctrine' of the Utopians is to abolish ownership of all kinds along with the dissolution of all civilized institutions including family ties--as Hitler managed to do for a time. The same spirit attempts to hold sway over the world in 2011. Note: the July 28, 2011 noon transits show Venus/Pluto rising, a combo that relates to bankruptcy or forced bankruptcy as in Greece, and now--in America; also Venus/Pluto = extremes of wealth hidden in secret places--Munkasey. Venus/Pluto - ASC: wielding great infuence or a fascination upon others; focus on a need for political response to those with a destructive or punishing intent--YES!)

On Capitol Hill, the GOP is all but giddy at the thought of the financial precipice America teeters upon as they implement their plan to "see Obama fail." And it seems that President Obama is walking right into the trap! Is he secretly on the side of these particular Utopians? Probably not. Others? Yes, or he wouldn't be in the White House. Yet these brigands hope to 'build anew upon the ashes' of our nation...remember The Phoenix was preferred by certain of America's founders to serve as our national symbol, and not the eagle.

A synchronistic chart factor is a repeating midpoint--in early Aries on July 14, 1989, and on July 28, 2011 as well. It involves the Jupiter/Neptune pair of inflationary practices, grand schemers, speculators, spendthrifts, and wastrels--and guess which planet sits upon its apex, then and now?

1989 and 2011 Jupiter/Neptune = 2011 Uranus: disruptive events which have no real explanation (but the media goes round and round); basing decisions on odd or supernatural theories; unaccustomed confusion (Capitol Hill is playing this well--jc); impersonal treatment for those with drug dependencies (private prisons in the US are chocked full of people arrested for getting high--a medical condition--jc); imagination v reality; coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Well, Mr. Boehner held a presser a while ago so I'll mosey along for now. Let me know if you wish to comment on-topic concerning this horoscope, or on the societal conditions now prevailing. If the GOP is allowed to set the timeline of the 'debt crisis' for December 2012--aka, the can down the road tactic to affect the 2012 election--Americans can go ahead and kiss their Merry Christmas 2011 good-bye.

A news note from Thom Hartmann's broadcast today: GE is moving its x-ray technology business to China so more US jobs will be disappearing. Besides undermining the American economy further, GE's move to Beijing also 'pokes a stick' in the President's eye--compliments of his reputed 'jobs czar', Mr. Immelt.

1989 Solar Eclipse at Crisis Degree

The 1989 chart's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (PE) is at a critical or crisis degree, '17Pisces'. In July 2011, the transiting midpoint Of Uranus/Neptune is, as marked, @ 17Pis19 thus stimulating 1989's EU Flag Unfurling PE which is in the 9 New North Series: 'violence, great or sudden physical efforts and/or events; accidents; guarding one's safety.' (Brady.) 9NN last manifested on March 19, 2007 (George Bush!) @ '28Pisces' and will next occur in 2025.

9NN is the PE of the WikiLeaks release of the US helipcopter carnage video, of Julian Assange himself (1971), of Abraham Lincoln (1809), Bobby Jindall (1971), of assassinated President Garfield's inauguration (1881), Edgar Alan Poe (1809), and the Generation of Materialism (Robber Barons, 1881)...aka, the Great Bubble Creators who now desert America where they first made their fortunes.

(btw: Oct 24, 1993 is the date I use to time a natal chart for the New World Order;
Uranus/Neptune @ '19Cap' = "POLITICAL POWER...negative expression: smug or strong-armed paternalism"--M. E. Jones.)

My heartfelt condolences go to the good people of Norway for this would be the type of Uranus/Neptune paternalism the social freak on his political rampage wishes to shove upon the world with his 'awakening' massacre of defenseless teenagers in Norway on July 23, 2011--a 'New Knights Templar', as he styles his racist self. He's a Utopian similar to, and reading the works of, America's right-wing crazies who now intrigue to impeach President Obama and crash the US economy to make him look the culprit.

Truman And Eisenhower paid down US debt (video)

Here's progressive broadcaster Thom Hartmann explaining how a Democratic and a Republican president--Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower--handled US debt during their terms...they paid it down and grew the US economy simultaneously.

Nowadays you'd think such a practical feat involves rocket science, wouldn't you?

My favorite part is Harry Truman in 1948 calling out the Republican Party as the party of "special interests" and--that's what they'll always be!

Given what's transpiring in Washington this year ad nauseum under the tattered guise of "governing" and considering the financial consequences of their political games and over-arching agenda to 'make Obama a one-term president" (no matter who gets hurt in the process), the GOP now demonstrates just how correct Give 'Em Hell Harry was when it came to understanding the essential nature of the Republican Party.

So when Mundane Astrology tells us that the GOP is signified by rich man Jupiter, with the Democratic Party as sober Saturn (with Dems being the older of the two parties), we might remember Mr. Truman telling us like it is about the party of the Jupiter mantra which insists on dialing things in and suddenly becoming fiscally 'responsible'--but only when there's a Democrat in the White House.

Transparency in Washington!

Oh yeah, and Thom tosses in cut-taxes-on-rich, raise-taxes-on-working class cuss and a half Ronald Reagan who signed the deregulating Garn-St. Germain Act on October 15, 1982 and pronounced with Jupiterian glee that, "All in all, I think we hit the jackpot!"


They did.

And they still do.

US Default 1979 Venus hit by July 2011 Uranus

After last evening's address by President Obama on the debt ceiling/default tussle of ideologies and Speaker John Boehner's reply--Mr. Boehner seems to think he's our 'shadow president'--I've taken a second look at the first time America defaulted temporarily--April 26, 1979.

Since a New Moon 5Tau43 occurred at 8:14:42 am est Capitol Building, I'm using the New Moon to time the chart. The degree of this lunation is interesting because it's in a money sign, Taurus, and it conjoins our US natal Sun/Moon midpoint from the Sibly version of our nativity.

In the New Moon horoscope of April 26, 1979 when the US defaulted on its debts for a little while`as Congress balked and dithered over raising the debt ceiling so bills could be paid, I am naturally struck by July 2011's position of disruptive rebel Uranus in early Aries conjoining 1979's 10th house Venus 4Ari05.

Venus/Uranus as a pair relates to unexpected or unusual new alliances or broken unions but also to being erratic, eccentric, or a wastrel with money; the emphasis is on an unpredictable change of status in these matters, and of course, 10th house relates to the wider world's opinion. (America looks quite the dummy about now if she didn't already.)

Michael Munkasey gives pertinent info on Venus/Uranus in the realms of Politics and Business:

Thesis: a treasury which shows unexpected rises and falls in its valuation; a strange appreciation for financial assets or planning.

Antithesis: ruling bodies unable to cope with sudden infusions or lacks of financial revenues; unpredictable vanity shown by leaders or executives.

(Vanity! Thy name is Politician!)

The dates that transit Uranus conjoins 1979 default's Venus are:

1. June 5, 2011
2. August 14, 2011
3. March 16, 2012

As you see, I've highlighted the Rx date of August 14, 2011 since it relates closely to the current stand-off as Utopians (Uranus in Aries, says Ebertin) revisit the scene of their 1979 crime.

There are other major 'hits' to the April 26, 1979 chart, one of which is exact on August 2, 2011.

Restricting, contracting Saturn will conjoin 1979's Pluto Rx 17Lib21 only once on September 20, 2011. This transit indicates a time when there are power and control issues (I'll say!), a temporary lack of resources (!), and most disturbingly, situations become too big to handle. Hopefully our erstwhile DC politicians--in spite of their selfish political aims-- will get America's financial act together prior to that date for the longer a default lasts (if it occurs) the worse for the US and global economies. (See the related quote at the end of this post.)

Now transit Jupiter, bringer of largess, has already conjoined the 1979 New Moon and will do so again:

1. July 5, 2011
2. October 25, 2011
3. February 22, 2012

So we know the ideological battles between Republicans and Democrats will continue especially with the 2012 campaign on tap and the GOP's assumption that only they should control the White House.

1979 Sun/Moon = 2011/12 Jupiter: desires for joint endeavors, possessions, and expansion. Well, yes, that's been the US mode of operation in the past but a New World Order kid is on the block and showing his claws more each day. (Again, see quote below.)

Jupiter also conjoins 1979's Chiron 9Tau08, a time of zealotry, idealism, chasing rainbows, and a sense of being 'on a mission'--which I assert is the ancient Merovingians' Secret Doctrine, aka, Bacon's Great Plan for America, the 'New Atlantis'.

Plus, as of FDR's 1937 inauguration, US Inaugural Sun '1AQ" = "An Old Adobe Mission", an endeavor which the GOP believes it has the better method for implementing and which dissolves government and other civil institutions all together--but with a select few in control of the world. Cheeky monkeys. Part of the disrespect the Rs show toward Democratic presidents is to sway citizens to do the same as the office of 'US president' will become obsolete along with nation-states, if they have their NWO way. See this blog's sidebar for the video of Bush Sr's shout-out to the NWO of which he and his spawn are obviously a part.)

The dates of tr Jupiter to 1979 Chiron stand out in particular for one of them occurs on the proposed Default Deadline:

1. August 2, 2011
2. September 26, 2011
3. March 11, 2012

Yes, Jupiter/Chiron conjunctions have a 'transcendental objective' up their questing sleeves--or perhaps it's tucked inside their knights' tunics or armour fanny packs.

And where was anarchist Uranus on April 26, 1979? Feeling frisky and exalted in Scorpio, sign of Big Business, and ready to adjust to upheavals and new forms of civilization! A Scorpio Uranus thinks that change must be brought about no matter how destructive (Sakoian.) Most of the American people are feeling this now with our social safety net programs "on the chopping block", as they say in Washington of the ruling elite who have their own pensions and health care provisions in the bag.

1979 Uranus was retrograde @ 19Sco33, the 'accursed degree of the accursed sign' of traditional Astrology. This Uranus conjoined a difficult Fixed Star, Zuben Eschamali (Beta Libra: social reform for personal gain--Brady, sometimes written as 'Elschemali'.) North Scale is also at this degree: wealth, intelligence, hasty words cause problems (Anthony Louis, Horary Plain & Simple.)

In 1979, Uranus formed quindeciles (obsession-compulsion; 165 degr) with the New Moon 5Tau43...

Sun QD Uranus = living on the edge with a 'the rules don't apply to me' attitude; a sense of mission in needing to be different; may take up a 'cause' for mankind.

Moon QD Uranus: emotionally distant and aloof; may have a 'my way of the highway' attitude; driven to live on the edge (as above); potential for breaking old habit patterns. (The Quindecile, Ricki Reeves.)

Of interest to my fussing over Utopian schemes in this matter is that in 1979, Uranus opposes asteroid Atlantis 19Tau55! In Astrology, Atlantis = abuse of power and/or where we feel doomed which relates to the legend of what sank the fabled land of Atlantis.

1979's 2nd house Jupiter 00Leo31 (the GOP; $$$) squared the 11th house New Moon and paralleled Fixed Star Zosma (victim or savior; fear; restrictions.) Parallels are similar to strong conjunctions and are used as a timing device.

Mars 15Ari05 opposed Pluto in Libra which had recently conjoined US natal Saturn 14Lib48 which echoes the tr Saturn to 1979 Pluto transit mentioned above. the Mars/Pluto opposition gave a defiant attitude to the proceedings of 1979 much as we see now.

It's important with this aspect to fully evaluate the positives and negatives of any proposition before taking action, something which seems to be missing in the GOP stance of 2011 since their proposed cuts will lessen the money ordinary people have to spend and put back into the economy--so job losses will be ramped up. Denying other people their rights is a distinct potential with a Mars/Pluto opposition.

Also missing in 2011 are the implications of two 1979 midpoint pictures of note:

Moon/Saturn = US natal Jupiter: a sense of duty...like paying the credit card bills racked up by the last 5 Republican presidents!

Sun/Saturn = US n Jupiter: good fortune of the ill or elderly--something we'd like to see again in 2011, thanks. (I'm guessing that Harry Reid's debt proposal is the best we may expect from this ideologically manufactured situation, though you may disagree.)

At the Foundation of the Matter in 1979 (the IC) was Saturn 7Vir13 (Democrats) but Saturn trined the New Moon which must have aided in getting things moving forward again without much Saturnian delay or damage to the US credit rating. Looks like this time we may not get off as well if Washington's Political Theater doesn't end its performances very soon with a 'deal'.

Well, there's my brief consideration of Default 1979 v Default 2011. With the first default, we know how the plot turned out. This time it remains to be seen how far modern day Utopians will go with their overarching agenda to collapse the financial system of the United States of America.

And perhaps Washington's 2011 financial 'game of chicken' with the faith and credit of our nation will be enough to do just that.


Chart details: New Moon 5Tau43 April 26, 1979 8:14:43 am Capitol Building; Hour Sun; ASC 26Gem22 with '28Gem' = BANKRUPTCY (Ssbian Symbols) rising; Mc 3Pis42 conjunct Fixed Star Fomalhout, one of the Royal Stars of Persia: success through noble ideals.


"The Merovingians had a 'Secret Doctrine' (also called the 'Great Plan'), which in part called for the creation of a Univeral Throne in Europe...The holder of the Universal Throne must...possess the Spear of Destiny;...also be Holy Roman Emperor; and...hold the title, "King of Jerusalem"...the plan began...after the Priory of Sion officially separated from the Templars in 1188...The Merovingians planned to diminish the influence of the Church through...a clandestine tradition...that found expression in Hermetic and esoteric thought, such as in Rosicrucian and Freemasonic secret societies."

A "Super Congress"? Astrology of DC's Debt Talks July 2011

An Astro-Peek @ Debts Talks July 22--July 26, 2011

by Jude Cowell

Ongoing in Washington DC with 'no deal' reached over the weekend, the so-called debt talks and the August 2 default brou-ha-ha (Mercury, planet of negotiations and contracts, retrogrades on August 2--not good!) may in part be a set-up in order to make the creation of a sneaky anti-constitutional Super Congress seem necessary.

NPR has fresh coverage this morning of Washington's financial stand-off along with most other news outlets and blogs as both political parties 'hold stubbornly' to their sacred cows, red herrings, and favorite fear tactics meant to sway the public.

As you know, this play book has been used many times before such as when Barack Obama and pseudo-candidate John McCain, who theatrically 'suspended' his 2008 presidential campaign, rushed back to Capitol Hill to "rescue" the US economy and the global economy with it! Apparently the actual success of their 'rescue' efforts of 2008 remains in doubt circa 2011.

And of course, we know how things turned out--Wall Street was pumped up with billions of dollars to pay international creditors while Main Street USA continues to teeter on the brink.

Economist Paul Krugman's Sunday op-ed makes salient points about those substandard ratings agencies and the debt, while Robert Reich speaks up on behalf of Medicare and Social Security. Professor Reich was once a trustee for the Social Security insurance fund so he knows whereof he writes.

So yes, as you may imagine, the Jupiter-Neptune duo of speculators, spendthrifts, wastrels, inflationary measures, and grand schemes is active by midpoint on August 2, 2011 with Uranus in Aries ('Utopians'--Ebertin) as the catalyst!

Note: you may wish to scroll down this blog's sidebar to 'Natal Chart Astro-Peeks' for brief pictures of some of the players in the economic drama now being performed in Washington DC at the Capitol Hill Theater.

Using the 'Images for Integration' from Charles and Suzi Harvey's Sun Sign-Moon Sign book, let's track the conscious-unconscious implications starting on Friday July 22 @ 12 am edt and going until Tuesday July 26, 2011 @ 11:59:59 pm edt, just to look under the hood of these political 'talks'...a few additional details are included with Sabian Symbols a mixture of Rudhyar and Jones:

Friday July 22: Sun 29Can02 (a critical or crisis degree) '29Can' = "A Muse Weighing Newborn Twins in Golden Scales"--'Keynote: the intuitive weighing of alternatives' and Moon 17Ari39--'18Ari' = "An Empty Hammock Stretched Between Two Trees"--'Keynote: A constructive alternation of activity and rest'...

Sun Can/Moon Ari: "A suffragette takes to the barricades in aid of her cause." (Two trees, rwo parties? Pelosi? jc)

Saturday July 23: Sun 00Leo00--"30Can" = "A Daughter of the American Revolution" or "1Leo" = "Blood Rushes to a Man's Head as His Vital Energies Are Mobilized Under the Spur of His Ambition"--'Keynote: An irruption of bio-psychic energies into the ego-controlled field of consciousness' and Moon 29Ari31 (crisis degree) = "30Ari" = "A Duck Pond and Its Brood"--'Keynote: the realization of natural boundaries'...

Sun Leo/Moon Ari: "A knight errant dedicates his next grand adventure to the mistress of his heart, and then rides off into the sunset in a cloud of dust."

(Sadly, that Image refers all too well to the 'New Knights Templar' murderer of children in Oslo Norway on Saturday. All my condolences go to the affected families and friends of the victims.)

Sunday July 24: Sun 00Leo57 (see "1Leo", above) and Moon 11Tau28 = "12Tau" = "A Young Couple Walk Down Main Street, Window-Shopping"--'Keynote: the fascination of the youthful ego with the product of its culture'...

Sun Leo/Moon Tau: "Old King Cole was a merry old soul, and a merry old soul was he; he called for his pipe and he called for his bowl and he called for his fiddlers three."

(You know an Rs and Ds 'peace pipe' would be most efficacious about now. Another idea if the president ends up having to decide which bills get paid is to discontinue all congressional and staffer paychecks until they get their sorry act together and govern instead of collapsing the economy of our nation!)

Monday July 25: Sun 1Leo54 = "2Leo" = "An Epidemic of Mumps"--'Keynote: the spreading power of individual crises through a collectivity' and Moon 23Tau31 = "24Tau" = "An Indian Warrior Riding Fiercely, Human Scalps Hanging from His Belt"--'Keynote: the aggressiveness of human instincts when fighting for their earthly base of operation'...

Sun Leo/Moon Tau, same Image as for Sunday, above.

As you see, the Sun in early Leo conjoins President Obama's natal Mercury (clever solutions but grandstanding a potential), and he will have a Lunar Return 3Gem21 @ 7:04 pm edt this evening--will satisfaction be achieved? Not so fast, for the Sun also opposes his natal Jupiter, a time when others refuse to recognize one's efforts, pride and jealousy of others get in the way of political progress, and superficiality rules most activities...political theater, dahlink!)

Tuesday @ 11:59:59 pm edt July 26, 2011: Sun 3Leo49 = "4Leo" = "A Formally Dressed Elderly Man Stands Near Trophies He Brought Back from a Hunting Expedition"--'Keynote: the masculine will to conquer his animal nature and to impress his peers with his skill in performing the ancient traditional power rituals' and Moon 18Gem33 = "19Gem" - "A Large Archaic Volume Reveals a Traditional Wisdom"--'Keynote: contacting the all-human planetary Mind underlying any cultural and personal mentality'...

To close, here are two Images for Sun Leo/Moon Gem: "On a bright summer's day a butterfly turns into a radiant being...Children singing 'Happy Birthday to you' at a celebrity birthday party."

Will senior or ranking bureaucrats take the lead and raise the debt ceiling--a tradition? Will debt negotiations be successful so that Americans be will be 'partying' by midnight on Tuesday or on Wednesday over a successful agreement between Republicans and Democrats which will stave off (for now) the propagandized economic disaster Washington has worked for decades to mire us in?

Well, let's not forget that all through 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama's presidency, Jupiter and Neptune met in Great Conjunction/s (a 13-year cycle) directly upon US natal Moon (we-the-people) with this midpoint picture the results of which we still struggle with in an attempt to make heads or tails of our nation's true condition...any, all, or none may apply:

Tr Jupiter/Neptune = natal Moon: little sense of reality; losing oneself in plans; becoming involved in speculation, instability, wastefulness; a desire to dream (go to the latest movie! trust Washington! jc); an emotional swoon; going with the wind; uncertainty; real v unreal. (Ebertin; Munkasey; Tyl.)

And there we have it: real v unreal as governmental denizens of The Beltway gaze once again in rapt attention at their own self-serving bellybuttons while Main Street languishes in the dust of globalist greed and bald-faced power plays to establish a secret society agenda of world domination.

Now if only I were sassy enough, I'd add one thing to the Jupiter/Neptune = Moon picture above: feeling like a big bunch of victimized suckers. Aren't you?

Rep. Dennis Kucinich tells what War is used for

Once upon a time there was a popular song that asserted, "War! Huh!...What is it good for? Absolutely nuthin'! Say it again..." (insert blaring horns; I totally dislike blaring horns. And war.)

Nowadays people realize that war is 'good for' many things such as plundering other people's resources and establishing imperialist power bases on behalf of a 'new world order' of global domination, aka, a one world government. We now know that it's 'good for' a select few, but really really bad for anyone who gets in the elitist Vulcans' way and their 'vision' of The Great Plan of universal power.

Wonder how much oil and gas it would save the US to stop bombing other countries and bring our soldiers home from Middle Eastern sands?

Here's Rep. Dennis Kucinich telling of another 'use' for war, and he's right:

Leuren Moret: Japan's radiation cover-up ongoing (video)

Levels of nuclear radiation from the meltdown at Fukushima Japan continue to be misreported. Leuren Moret has testified in a court case concerning the 'nuclear genocide' of babies and children in Japan, Canada, and the US (including Philadelphia), with a call for wider evacuations in Japan.

In Canada, they're attempting to blame the spike in infant mortality rates on unsafe sleeping practices! That's a real pretzel twist for officials who assume that Canadians have no common sense whatsoever---or it's simply a desperate patootie-covering measure until they can come up with something better to hide the nuclear truth.

Here's the video with Leuren Moret calling out the 'nuclear apologists' in case you don't wish to click above:


Thanks for the heads-up, Kieron! jc

USA: The Secret Government (Bill Moyers video 1987)

Well, I vaguely remember watching this report from Bill Moyers years ago and am pleased to find it on video for you to consider in 2011 as hidden and not-so-hidden plutocrats continue their coup against democratic rulership in America which apparently (they devise) requires the crashing of our economy and the world financial system in order to further their global domination plan.

And if you use the 'Sibly' version of America's natal horoscope (5:10 pm LMT July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA), you're familiar with our 10th house Saturn 14Lib48 and 9th house Neptune 22Vir25 'straddling' US natal Midheaven 00Lib43 (The Goal) with the Saturn/Neptune duo indicating secret or invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn.)

Unfortunately, our national Saturn exalted in Libra won't help us much with our battles through its 10th house position which denotes a fall from grace in the eyes of the world, a condition made worse by a complicit, over-reaching Supreme Court (Libra's Scales of Justice, and Saturn as law-bringer)--and by the very brigands-in-hiding which Bill Moyers here discusses.

Horoscope: Social Security Act w July 18, 2011 transits

Horoscope: SS Act, signed August 14, 1935 with transits for July 18, 2011 8:00 pm edt Washington DC, outer; 1935's Hour: Sun; final dispositor: Sun; Phase: Full Moon 182:31; Mars and Jupiter rising in Scorpio, a big-business, money sign.

Robber Barons ride roughshod again!

Because last evening, July 18, 2011, in a 234--190 vote, the Republican-ruled House of Representatives passed their theatrical, Constitution-busting Cut, Cap, and Balance proposal which would gut our delicate economy to the quick and destroy America's social safety net (such as Social Security which is a self-sustaining insurance program.) It won't pass the Senate but if it does, President Obama will veto it, he says. Given the amount of human suffering its passage would assure, we may only pray that Mr. Obama stands up in a determined manner on behalf of the American people.

(Today the Rs are reported to be voting to ruin the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, yet another kowtow to their globalist, trans-national, corporate masters. The tax on SS benefits which Reagan imposed as president should be repealed--it taxes a tax!!)

Here you see the natal horoscope of the Social Security Insurance Act signed by President Franklin Roosevelt on August 14, 1935, exact hour unknown (using 'noon' at the White House: scroll down this blog's sidebar to view a video of the signing with its driving force, Frances Perkins, among the group surrounding FDR who worked with her in a progressive partnership from which the American people have benefited for 76 years.

Perhaps you remember that community worker Frances Perkins witnessed the horror of people jumping out of the windows of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory building when fire destroyed their lives so horribly, and presaged the 9/11 tragedy as The Twin Towers collapsed with people jumping to their deaths on NYC sidewalks again. Frances Perkins was behind our SS insurance program (along with Eleanor Roosevelt!) in an attempt to counter oppressive plutocrats and deliver much-needed aid to we-the-people.

Yes, I'm currently reading The Woman Behind the New Deal about Secretary of Labor, Frances Perkins, among other things.

US plutocrats/oligarchs/corporatists in 1933 had assumed FDR, once in office, would be their easily-manipulated toy and pawn; signings such as the SS Act in 1935 demonstrated differently--and enraged them. As we see, the high and mighty continue their battle against 'the little man' circa 2011 as social safety programs--the 'contract between generations'--is put on the congressional chopping block. The GOP argument that this action is necessary due to the US financial situation is a huge pile of bull feathers laced with manure.

In the horoscope: ASC 10Sco11 with Mars and Jupiter rising shows the WHAT? Point of the chart (ASC) as '11Scorpio' = "A Drowning Man Rescued" which the program was designed to do, and it's interesting to me because of Grover Norquist's 'drown in a bathtub' philosophy now fully embraced (in public!) by a GOP whose Reagan-esque "government is the problem" and "starve the beast" mantras denote their deep determination to gut and dismantle all social safety net programs established by FDR's New Deal (Uranus) and LBJ's Great Society (Jupiter.) This includes Social Security insurance which is independently funded by contributions and thus is not part of our deficit, debt, or default problems.

(Where our SS funds actually are is for another post! If they're not on-hand, we should ask Congress, the US Treasury, and the White House to 'show us the money' and to pay back what they owe to the 'trust' fund thanks to over-expenditures on three wars, and Bush tax breaks for the rich--though some say the money is invested in Treasury bonds and is available.)

Now as you know, the financial battle in Washington concerns party ideology (ex: 'Swords v Torches') and how our financial resources are to be used. Apparently, the Vulcans at the Pentagon have more wars they wish to wage! But personally I agree with Thom Hartmann on such issues: Stop the Wars, Heal Americans. And perhaps if our money-printers, the Federal Reserve Bank, were actually federal and had reserves, things would be improved toward our alleged of-by-for-the-people democracy.

At Midheaven (Mc), the WHY? Point or Goal of the chart (the signing) is '18Leo' = "A Chemist Conducts an Experiment" which seems to refer to FDR whose 'try something and if it doesn't work, try something else' philosophy of dealing with the 1929 US financial crash of his era (click for Black Tuesday horoscope.)

At the signing's Foundation (the Base or End of the Matter, the Ic) is '18AQ' = "A Man Unmasked" which I think refers again to FDR who was in process of disabusing wealthy class plutocrats (FDR's class by birth) of the notion that there were no limits to how shabbily, unfairly, and cruelly US citizens and workers could be treated by the ruling elite of his day.

"A Drowning Man Rescued" indeed! But no longer, if Republicans and Tea Partiers have their cold hearted way in 2011. It seems the monarchists' "Let them eat cake" has become "Let them drown" which shows their equal disdain (aka, hatred and contempt) for the masses.

On Descendant (Whereto?), the Partnership axis, is "11Tau" = "A Woman Sprinkling Flowers" which relates to care and concern, and to Frances Perkins, I assert. It took Ms. Perkins much shepherding of FDR and others with cooperative teamwork between all involved parties to get the SS Act passed and signed!

Well, click the chart to enlarge and read a few basic notes. Here I shall simply focus on two major transits (July 18, 2011) to the SS Act chart, Sun to Pluto (specific to last night's theatrical return-to-1966-spending Cut, Cap, and Balance vote--staged on behalf of the Tea Party, but also to the bi-partisan 'Gang of Six' actions and recommendations issuing from the Senate.)

Here are potentials for the two transits; the first one is a one-day-only affair relating to yesterday and last evening's activities involving powerful Pluto; the 2nd transit is longer-lasting due to a retrograde phase of Jupiter, planet of rich men, gurus, professors, military generals, and the GOP--in Taurus, a money sign with its underbelly of greed, intolerance, and prejudice:

1. 2011 Sun to SS's Pluto 26Can19: use of power emphasized; stronger aggression, self-will, and intensity are shown; becoming more formidable or dictatorial; resentments are provoked; manipulations come into view.

(Note: this is a Pluto-opposing-US-natal-Pluto transit indicating titanic power struggles as plutocrats were 'let down' by FDR's 'standing up' for the suffering poor and by his acts which helped to establish a Middle Class in this country; it relates as well to war between nations as the US was taken into WWII during FDR's presidency.)

2. 2011 Jupiter to SS's Uranus 5Tau31 Rx: issues of physical and intellectual independence surface; unpredictable inspirations; an egalitarian approach to dealing with others; personal networks expand; seeking to enlarge one's participation in events; areas such as finance, investment, fund-raising (tsk tsk: do they ever stop?), technology, travel, astrology (!), and group activities/projects are highlighted and broadened.

As you know, Jupiter will Station Retrograde on August 30, 2011 @ 10Tau21, Station Direct on or about December 25, 2011 @ 00Tau22 (a degree of violence), and will pass beyond his shadow (10Tau21) on or about March 18, 2012. It may be after that date before the ultimate fate of the American people's under-fire social safety net programs is known, or the positive or negative effects from Washington's monkeying with them is fully appreciated and experienced.

Consumer Financial Protection w a US Mars Return 7.21.11

July 21, 2011 is the day the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is meant to start operations and synchronicistically it is a day of a US Mars Return, a 2-year cycle of new activities beginning that very morning.

The condition of astrological Mars on Thursday July 21, 2011 isn't what consumers needing protection from financial wolves and thieves could wish but it will be what we have to work from: Mars conjunct South Node, a separative and Saturnian point of the Moon. This gives a 'Mars/Saturn' vibe of 'inhibited or destroyed vitality' to the bureau's nativity which, given its powerful opponents, may be directed at the bureau and its mandates rather than at the fraudsters and banksters who have made its creation necessary.

Mars conj SN indicates a questioning of societal values which is good as far as it goes yet there is a hint of 'stepping aside' if those values don't suit. However, Mars/SN may give the new bureau a 'loner' identity where it acts on its own decisions and disregards what others say or do. This I would consider a positive manifestation since I am in accord with the American people's need for such protection which then has a voice of authority that can speak up for we-the-people when larger forces oppress.

Where there is abuse, the bureau may bring civilian cases though criminal ones would have to be turned over to the Department of Justice, something that doesn't always result in justice being fairly given to the disenfranchised in America today, as you have noticed.

Negatively with Mars/SN, there can be a tendency toward acting at the wrong time or in the wrong place which antagonizes others into opposing the bureau's actions or findings. Anger, frustration, and even violence can result and it's quite clear that being set up under a Democratic president will make the CFPB an entity that Republicans will gum up at every turn (Elizabeth Warren gave up being abused by a Republican-ruled House and will not head the agency she created, as most consumers wanted--instead it will be headed by Richard Cordray.)

So I must wonder if the bureau will be able to do its job at all or will simply create more stand-offs, gridlocks, and ideological straw men that Washington dis-serves the American people with now. Hopefully, Mr. Cordray will put his best political face on before every game of chess he'll be playing and can keep the CFPB from ending up like a kitten ensnared in string.,,cute as all get out, but quite toothless.

And of course, plutocratic Republicans would never have set up such an agency to aid unwary consumers, the hapless pigeons of their Pluto/Chiron dreams!

The only other aspect made by Mars in our national Mars Return chart for 2011 is a semi-square (45 degr) to Jupiter in Taurus, a money sign. This is a minor indicator of obstacles, irritation, and frustration yet if determined to succeed, may result in a dynamic release of energy.

The Mars/Jupiter semisquare may also be descriptive of monied interests (banks, Wall Street--the Bull--credit card companies, global wheeler-dealers, monarchists, etc) interfering in the bureau's actions and decisions at every turn for the aspect astrologically stamps a 4th harmonic imprint upon the entire enterprise. And of course, they will interfere, won't they?

Here's a brief video message from Elizabeth Warren which I snagged from the CFPB website with the helpful motto: Know Before You Owe:

Rounding up America's Mars degree to '22 Gem' doesn't seem to me to apply to this situation as well as the actual degree from July 4, 1776 does. See what you think:

US Mars '21 Gemini' = "A Labor Demonstration"...REPRESENTATION...

positive expression: a consistent courage in attacking major problems at any cost of minor well-being or inconvenience.

negative/unconscious/shadow side: futile ill-will and bluster.

(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones, with my addition of 'unconscious/shadow side' and italics.)

Well, Happy Mars Return 2011, everyone!

Rupert Murdoch v Pluto; Sean Hoare found dead 7.18.11

A Busy Weekend for the Murdoch Empire as Pluto Exacts His Due

by Jude Cowell

Breaking News: at 10:40 am today (7.18.11) London police were called to the address of a former News of the World reporter Sean Hoare found mysteriously dead which is said by officials to be "unexplained but not suspicious". What??? A suicide? Well, with Pluto on the scene and such high stakes, perhaps other participants in the Murdoch phone hacking probe should think seriously about watching their backs.

My original post begins here:

In the past powerful, publishing Pluto has been a close friend of Rupert Murdoch, but these days? Not so much. Media baron Rupert Murdoch's phone hacking and police bribery troubles aren't over and a new round of ills may issue from Murdoch's and son's appearances before the UK Parliament this week.

Also to be questioned by Parliament will be Murdoch's protege Rebekah Brooks who was arrested by London police over the weekend after volunteering to speak with investigators--apparently her arrest was a big surprise since her willing if strategic offer to give information did not head off an arrest.

Yes, the distraction from this story, important though it is, promises to be long lasting and contentious. In fact, one of the subtitles on Mr. Murdoch's Wikipedia page lists the 'News International phone hacking scandals' as "2006 - ___ " for no one knows where it will end or how many careers will be destroyed in the process. UK Met police officials have begun resigning, too, as BBC News reports.

In Australia, it is reported that NewsCorp shareholders have called for Murdoch to step down from his position. Ouch.

And today, whistleblower Sean Hoare has turned up mysteriously dead!

Yes, transiting Pluto through structural Capricorn does tend to take down leaders as we've seen across the globe of late - in the East and in the West! One of the scandal-related resignations has dragged UK PM David Cameron into the muck and it will be interesting to hear what Ms. Brooks has to say about David Cameron and Number 10 Downing Street when she's questioned.

Will truth be told or suppressed?

Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal is hoping to deflect criticism of Mr. Murdoch by leveling charges against the Guardian (which originally broke the story of NewsCorp's habit of phone-hacking) and the BBC. No conflict of interest there, right?

Well, if you hanker for some Astrology on the matter, do check out Lynn Hayes' analysis of Mr. Murdoch's Mars-Saturn opposition and more, plus, Darkstar Astrology provides astrological insights such as: transformative Pluto crossed Rupert Murdoch's natal Ascendant last November.

In addition, the influences of the 'double eclipses' we're under now (June 1, 2011 @ 11Gem02 and July 1, 2011 @ 9Can12, a rare event) are leading to revelations galore as many cover-ups are in process of being uncovered. Of course, Gemini is the sign of The News, reporters, and communications! The June eclipse @ 11Gem02 triggered his natal Mercury/Neptune midpoint (actors, deceitful people, liars - Ebertin) so we have:

Natal Mercury/Neptune = Sun: being deceived; impressionability; feelings of completion as dreams materialize (oops! jc); evaluation of hunches.

N Mercury/Neptune = Moon: opening receptivity to channeling information from non-physical sources (such as from other peoples' private cell phone calls? jc); a misguided imagination; a deceived or deception woman. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

And the current Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 is 'eclipsing' Murdoch's natal Jupiter with his company's stock prices falling!

In spite of it all, I shall not spend much time astrologically on this success-at-any-cost FOX News magnate (and Cato Institute board member) except to give a little info on his Pre-Natal Eclipse (PE), and the Sabian Symbol for his Sun in Pisces.

Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch was born on March 11, 1931 during the 4 South Saros Series with the eclipse prior to his birth occurring on October 21, 1930 @ '28 Libra'.

The initial (very first) eclipse in this Series manifested on March 19, 1624 (NS) @
'29Pis'--basically conjunct the Aries Point of Fame and Recognition. Pluto in 1624 was @ 14Tau45, the degree of US Inaugural Ascendants each January 20th of our presidential inaugurations at noon since 1937--the Oath of Office. Perhaps this will turn out to be significant for the White House, perhaps not. I refer not just to Obama administration but to that of George Bush under whose terms much of the phone hacking occurred.)

From Brady's Predictive Astrology, we find that the flavor of 4S is quite difficult: very strong emotions concerning relationships and finances; anger, lust; there's a sense of fatedness as individuals are caught up in relationship events beyond their control (I bet Rupert hates that! jc); potentially there's a sudden desire to end relationships; emotions are blocked or frustrated; real action should be avoided until events settle down.

Well, events are not settling down and seem to be escalating with FOX News phone hacking possible. If there's a bigger agenda here for someone behind the scenes of this scandal, it makes me wonder just who wants to take down the media organization and politically infused empire of Rupert Murdoch. It should be instructive to see who or which groups ultimately benefit from his empire's demise, the reports of which for now may be overly exaggerated.

Now for Mr. Murdoch's natal Sun @ '21Pisces' with a most interesting Sabian Symbol in light of his known dealings with China. Of note is a 2008 article concerning Murdoch's 'shattered dreams' dealings with the Communist country.

Natal Sun @ '21 Pisces' = "A Little White Lamb, a Child, and a Chinese Servant."

Such is the solar essence of Mr. Rupert Murdoch.


Modern manifestations of Solar Eclipses in the 4S Series: 1912, 1930 (his PE), 1948, 1966, 1984, 2002 (@ '12Sag'--"A Flag That Turns into an Eagle That Crows"--conjoins US natal ASC in the Sibly chart, and conjuncts the degree of the Great Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron--plutocrats; plutocracy; oppression--in 1999); next eclipse in the 4S Series will be in 2020.

President's Weekly Address July 16, 2011 (video)

President Obama has one of his weekly 'bully pulpit' messages for us which spotlights US economic issues and the theatrical Default Stand-Off with his usual well-crafted, seemingly direct approach.

Yes, yes, of course I agree that "we're all in this together." It's just that a select few are a lot more in than together with the rest of us.

Such as the frisky elitist movers'n'shakers now frolicking together and exclusively under the shade trees of Bohemian Grove...

Say, anyone know where Barack Obama is spending his weekend?

A Lunar Eclipse, Pluto, and the Assassination of Sunny Sheu

Does Pluto/Chiron's 'Primal Violence' Thrive in NYC?

by Jude Cowell

Thanks to a concerned reader who took time to leave a comment on this blog, I have become aware of the case of Sunny Sheu who was murdered for investigating his own victimization by mortgage fraud in New York. Was the plutocratic, disenfranchising, oppressive, racist duo of Pluto/Chiron present at the scene of the crime?

Mr. Sheu was "kidnapped, intimidated, and threatened by two NYPD detectives at the Queens DA bureau", it is reported by DailyKos (June 23, 2011.)

Very soon Mr. Sheu was dead from blunt force trauma to the head (or, a 'seizure' or, a mysterious 'collapse') and several irregularities in statements by police and medical examiners, plus, conflicted autopsy results have muddied the water for those who wish to know the truth concerning what appears to be the assassination of Sunny Sheu. His determination for truth and justice took him uncomfortably close to the powers-that-be, by which I mean, whoever is now protected by Mr. Sheu's silence-by-murder.

Actually, Sheu's difficult ordeal (a fraudulent foreclosure on his own home bwo forged documents) began ten years ago. You'll find reports with fuller details at Naked Capitalism and at The Daily Bail where SO'W's concerned reader suggested I go to familiarize myself with the Sheu case (of which I was unaware until today.)

Follow the links to read details, view videos, and listen to audios of actual phone calls asking for information on the Cause of Death. You may also wish to view the brief video Mr. Sheu recorded about two months prior to his death. You see, the FBI had ignored his request for witness protection.

2010/2011: Double Eclipses Reveal, Lunar Eclipse Brings Death

This is another story being 'outed' by the rare double (June 1 and July 1) Solar Eclipses of 2011 - one in Gemini, sign of reporters, news, contracts, and commerce, and one in self-protective Cancer which contains flavors of real estate misfortunes (mortgage fraud and murder over it) and power struggles (keep quiet--or else!)

The June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @11Gem02 conjoined natal Pluto (planet of assassins, saboteurs, and spies) in the horoscope of Manhattan (Feb 12, 1653 noon LMT Manhattan NY; source: Maggie Hyde; n Pluto 12Gem06 Rx is rising.) Celeste Teal titles this eclipse: Something to Cry About and we know that there are many things in society which now fall under that title, aren't there?

One more is the murder of Sunny Sheu and the suspicious actions of Judge Joseph Golia whom Sheu had expected to help straighten out the mortgage fraud, not enshrine it by law.

Plus, Lunar Eclipses can be especially revealing with their unconscious (Moon) content coming to the surface under a Full Moon's rays. A Lunar Eclipse occurred between the two Solar Eclipses on June 15, 2011 @ 24Sag23 - directly upon Manhattan's natal 7th-house Neptune. And who are the Neptune/Pluto people, people? The resource plunderers of the *Generation of Materialism of the late 1880s...the Robber Barons, whose biological and ideological spawn bedevil us now.

Yet perhaps even more telling concerning the assassination of Sunny Sheu is another Neptune/Pluto indicator: organized crime. In New York City circa 2010/11? Say it isn't so, Mr. Bloomberg!

Now here's the thing: Sunny Sheu lost his life by sinister means on June 26, 2010, the day of the Lunar Eclipse @ 4Cap46--with the Moon conjunct power-mad Pluto, planet of The Underworld, assassination, murder, and great wealth. The first three are some of the ways in which the richer classes grasp and protect their wealth when bought-off judges, forged documents, or cyber-crimes are insufficient, or when dirty deeds must be covered up.

In the presence of the Moon and Pluto, a pair that 'encourages crime' (Munkasey), on June 26, 2010, was asteroid Siva (aka, Shiva), named after the creator-destroyer god. So if you're wondering where at this very moment Siva creeps in the Tropical Zodiac, I'll tell you: 4Cap12 Rx--still conjunct power-behind-the-throne Pluto.

Creepy. And there will be more uncoverings before 2011's end and on into 2012.

Well, now I must say, I hope one day you can R.I.P., Sunny Sheu. This post is dedicated to you and to all Americans who wish to rout out the corrupt and detestable operators and thieves who now bedevil and defraud the innocent.

We must also be careful and watch out for each other (not spy on one another as 'they' want) because wolves lie in wait.

Hope you'll check out the blog The Murder of Sunny Sheu by Mr. Sheu's friend, who is the writer of the original expose.


*The 'Generation of Materialism' horoscope of the Robber Barons is timed by the New Moon 8Tau14 of April 28, 1881 which manifested soon after a Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in gold-loving Taurus on April 18, 1881. In Astrology, Jupiter and Saturn are our 'societal planets' and their constrict v expand balancing act relates directly to financial cycles and money markets. Their last conjunction occurred on May 28, 2000 @ '23Tau': "A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Gems."

Marc Edmund Jones' Sabian Symbols gives the negative expression of this degree as: "a greediness which betrays the soul with trifles."

And that's not all that greediness has betrayed since May 2000, as we've seen. The world is now just beyond the opposition phase of the 20-year Jupiter-Saturn cycle (2011 minus 2000 = 11 yrs = 10 + 1) and we're actually closer to an inconjunct (150 degr), an aspect of adjustment which now inspires and disjoints debt talks, default stand-offs, and theatrical walk-outs at the White House. In Mundane Astrology, the tradition is: Saturn = Democratic Party, Jupiter = Republican Party though of course, both planets appear in each party's natal charts.

Therefore we know that even the party-busting, self-imagined "masters of the universe" are completely subject to our Creator's natural laws although they wouldn't dream of having us realize such vulnerability. jc

Bohemian Grove parties on! 7.16.11 (Alex Jones videos)

These videos from yesterday, July 15, 2011, concern the current 15-day Bohemian Grove gathering of elitists in California with...er...their playmates on-call:

(RussiaToday) – Forget about Bilderberg. America hosts its own top-secret pow-wow every summer in the woods of California, and some of the past participants at the all-male Bohemian Grove party have included presidents, foreign royalty and Hollywood elite. They are gathering right now for their two week adventure, and filmmaker Alex Jones says he once snuck his way onto the secret site.

Alex Jones reveals new Bohemian Grove info and discusses the obsession with pro-U.S. Hollywood films like Captain America.

So I suppose this means that politicians, business leaders, and entertainers who can't be located over the next two weeks just might be busy gettin' it on in a secluded Bohemian Grove.

Wonder what plans for our nation they're devising between their cocktails and sexy hook-ups? "Captain America" indeed.

Okay, now I need to shower and hopefully get that raunchy image of Henry Kissinger out of my head...

Update: Here's more Bohemian Grove info from the Daily Mail: hacktivists intend to infiltrate the goings-on this year!

Horoscope: Eric Cantor w July 2011 Debt Talks planets

Swords v Torches! Debt Talks & Walk-Outs Continue at the White House

by Jude Cowell

According to his Wikipedia bio page, Eric Ivan Cantor was born on June 6, 1963 in Richmond, Virginia. Mr. Cantor has inhabited the role of House Majority Leader since January 3, 2011, and is of a Republican persuasion. His father, a real estate firm owner, acted as state treasurer for the 1980 presidential campaign of Ronald Reagan so our Mr. Cantor is quite the dyed-in-the-wool Kool-Aid imbiber of Starve The Beast Ideology with a transnational corporation persuasion perking underneath all the charm.

UPDATE Friday 7.15.11: here's a fresh story concerning yesterday's debt talks at the White House during which the confrontational Mr. Cantor is said to have remained mum. Plus, you may wish to check out Cantor's Sun--Moon blend for a fuller picture of the fellow.

Original post resumes here:

Taking a squinty astro-peek at the cosmic implications of Mr. Cantor's day of birth (hour unknown, using Noon), we see a man with Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius with Luna remaining in Sag for the 24-hour period (Moon sails from 3 Sag to 14 Sag.)

Image: horoscope Eric Cantor June 6, 1963 noon edt Richmond, VA, with 'debt talks' transits for July 13, 2011 White House, outer, in yellow.

With its Moon/Pluto conjunction @ 5Cap (and conjoining tr Siva, the destroyer-creator), the July 13, 2011 'debt talks' transits resonate with the June 26, 2010 Lunar Eclipse @ 4Cap46 which conjoined tr Pluto 4Cap06 Rx (the revealing eclipse with the Cardinal Grand Cross stand-off energies) and I think a Moon/Pluto theme describes the current debt talks-negotiations-meetings (and emotional tantrums!) at the White House of late between the GOP's John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and President Obama.

See what you think about Michael Munkasey's Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets info concerning Moon/Pluto as the combined energies may express themselves in Politics and Business:

popular promises concerning waste in appeals to the people; obsessions bring misuse of the available resources for country or business. A 'public relations' vibe is also noted with Moon/Pluto involvement.

Now I don't often spend much time blogging about a horoscope when an exact time for it isn't known (so we can know which houses the planets are posited in, and ASC and MC degrees), so I won't. But I will focus on natal chart factors relating to finances and/or to the current power play against a Democratic White House and president. Missions are butting heads here!

Click to enlarge the image, as suggested, and hopefully you'll be able to make out a few of my chicken-scratch notes written upon the chart along with the transits.

Note a dynamic T-Square pattern between Cantor's Pluto/Chiron (plutocracy - Mr. Obama was born with Pluto opposing Chiron, too) opposition pointing toward natal Sun in Gemini, his essence, personality, and the North Star leading him along his hero's journey. Geminian realms are part of his path: Communications, News, Trade, Commerce, ruled by speedy Mercury who serves as Messenger to the gods. Mmm-hmm. (Nor-quist, the North Star guiding his path, his mission in life?)

This apex Sun in a T-SQ indicates one with very strong willpower (enough to abruptly interrupt a president), a bold desire for accomplishment and recognition, a self-seeking tendency, over-confidence, arrogance, and an overbearing manner. This apex Sun attracts conflict and power struggles with others!

More specifically, apex Sun in a Mutable T-SQ hones the ambition to a deep and concentrated focus on being recognized for intellectual prowess. The changeable Mutable undercurrent gives him a highly nervous restlessness requiring periodic rest so that a tantrum taking his nibs suddenly out of a room when the heat is turned up and he over-fusses himself tallies quite well with apex Sun in a Mutable T-SQ pattern.

Well-managed, this solar energy is all set to make Mr. Cantor into 'something special' yet that doesn't guarantee it will benefit more than those in the ruling class--although it may retain for him the social status he so desires. Much fame is indicated for this natural authoritarian and plutocratic oligarchs are on hand to motivate him at every turn.

And this week, Mars conjoined Mr. Cantor's natal Sun in mid-Gemini, a time when aggressive energy rises, conflicts and confrontations may occur (even physical ones), and ego gratification is the driving force behind goals. He feels his principles, integrity, and pride are on the line so no wonder he's acting so frisky in the White House!

A Word About Eric Cantor's Jupiter in Aries

Rep. Cantor's Jupiter 13Ari29 describes a competitive risk-taker with an abundance of inner self-esteem, a self-assertive style, a big ego (typical for a politician), and big dreams for the future. If crashing the global economy is the goal, a one-world-government fanatic may be indicated for Jupiter in Aries is the 'holy crusader' and zealot...so maybe Eric Cantor's mask just slipped a wee notch.

This reminds me of candidate Michele Bachmann signing a theocracy pledge which ignores America's traditional yet fading 'separation of church and state' tenet. We will be oh-so sorry when it's gone.

Jupiter inconjunct Neptune tends to create for itself impossible problems which then entail painful solutions; a misunderstanding of responsibilities can be evident, and psychosomatic conditions may flare under pressure which is more internally applied than externally.

Sun inconjunct Neptune causes over-reactions to anything perceived as criticism, a workaholic temperament, and a tendency to underestimate or overestimate one's capabilities - or to alternate between the two. Moderation In All Things is the best advice for this aspect, along with using caution when taking on other people's responsibilities (such as John Boehner's!)

These two inconjuncts (aka, quincunxes, 165 degrees = obsession-compulsion) make up the YOD pattern you see in the horoscope marked in red and with dotted line.

But of course! You of the eagle eye spy Mr. Cantor's natal YOD pattern (crisis; crossroads; turning point; special task; Finger of God) with a Sun/Jupiter sextile at its base, and pointing toward apex Neptune 13Sco29 Rx (Scorpio, the sign of Big Business, Surveillance, The Occult, and Science, with support from his scientific Saturn in Aquarius; the Neptune in Scorpio generation is charismatic.)

First, let's consider the 60-degree Sun/Jupiter sextile of opportunity at the YOD's base.

Alan Oken calls this the 'Cosmic Blessing' aspect and says it brings good fortune, material comfort, and pleasant journeys where significant experiences occur. Plus, Alan Epstein says a Sun/Jupiter sextile presents a challenge to gain recognition without becoming corrupted in the process. Well, I suspect Mr. Cantor works in the wrong town and business if he values non-corruptibility though we may be seeing this expressed in his fanatic clinging to the Reagan-Norquist Starve The Beast manifesto, no matter whose granny or child gets hurt. This aspect also shows political astuteness, an impressive facade, and a talent for playing competitors against one another!

Now apex Neptune in a YOD configuration denotes one who prefers to remain within an emotional ivory tower and ignore needed social adjustments--from there he can criticize and direct from a safe distance. Mr. Cantor is devoted to an ideal for which a sacrifice is required and around which may swirl illusion, deception, and mysticism. Here is an illuminated one (and a radical: Uranus in wide conjunction with transformative Pluto.)

A midpoint picture is formed by the trio involved in the YOD--any, all, or none may apply...

Sun/Jupiter = Neptune: purposeful deceit about the intentions of others; grandiose plans for projects others think are impractical; an interest in illusions; clouds of doubt; high sensitivity; a material loss; a successful medium or crook (all mdpt pics: Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Plus, Mr. Cantor's Mars/Uranus conjunction in early Virgo, sign of The Critic, supplies him with a willful desire to determine his own rules and remain unrestrained by others; he believes he must be free in order to do what it takes to get what he wants. Here is a rebellious, impulsive nature of daring and courage. Now Mr. Cantor could use his warrioring Mars/Uranus energy to fight for the less fortunate in our society but somehow this imperative has been perverted toward a cold-hearted corporate ideology where tragedy for others results.

Yes, he is good at initiating challenges to powerful government officials, and to dramatize his point he may even threaten his opponents using any public support he has (or thinks he has.) Perhaps this tendency was involved in President Obama's pushback against Cantor--even if it takes down his presidency, BHO says. (Good!)

Well, since a Mars/Uranus conjunction describes a taker, not a giver, I shall wish Mr. Obama and the American people positive outcomes as the president deals with 'holy crusader' Eric Cantor.

In spite of it all, perhaps something will be agreed upon between the parties by the light of Friday's Full Moon in Capricorn a mere few hours hence: July 15, 2011 @ 2:39 am edt in Washington DC! Its Sabian Symbol seems appropriate as 'debt talks' and the August 2nd debt ceiling deadline continues making the news in our nation's capital...

Full Moon '23Cap' = "Two Awards For Bravery in War"...RECOGNITION.

positive expression: the social stewardship which demands a continual self-dedication;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: strutting self-exploitation.

Social stewardship from Washington DC circa 2011? Now we're talkin'!

Happy 164.79th Birthday, Neptune! w US natal Neptune

In dealing with Politics through the lens of Astrology, one grows accustomed to thinking of Neptune's less attractive traits such as deception, illusion, confusion, fraud - plus, the masses, the media--well, you know the list of nebulous, yet sometimes inspired or even divine, tendencies and provinces of the gaseous planet.

Yet as seen from Earth, Neptune is one of the most beautiful objects in our solar system with its blue methane cloudiness and a charming, mysterious quality of elusiveness (telescope or binoculars are needed to spy upon the Sea King!)

So I was happy as a puppy with two tails when my friend Crystal Pomeroy, who writes the insightful column Moon Meditations @ Daykeeper Journal, sent along a link to a celebratory, informative article concerning our eighth planet, the rather glamorous Neptune.

Tuesday July 12, 2011 was Neptune's 164.79th birthday since its discovery on the evening of September 23, 1846. Yet in true Neptunian fashion, a veil is tossed carelessly across even that event for actually, Galileo was first to document (January 1613) what he notated as as a 'fixed star'...which we now know was planet Neptune!

US natal Neptune in the sign of The Worker, Virgo

Current US circumstances with jobs elusive and bank fraud run rampant (with much still hidden and un-indicted) may be described in part by Neptune (loss; fraud; deception; disappointment) in Virgo (work, service; discrimination) ruled by quicksilver Mercury which in America's natal horoscope (July 4, 1776) is retrograde in Cancer at a very interesting degree in the Sabian Symbols in relation to the events and participants of 1776 and to our national character in 2011.

US natal Mercury '25 Cancer' = "A Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power."

Now it's true I always think of Pluto's Cape of Invisibility (and Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, in May 1776) when I read the word picture for '25Can' yet Neptune plays an obscuring part in the charade as well. Neptune is quite the masquerader and actor, as is well known. And that, dear reader, becomes more and more apparent as the mummery of the debt and budget 'meetings' (rehearsals?) continue up to the wire of Default and obscures from realistic view what may occur to US and World markets after August 2, 2011 if a devil's deal isn't reached.

And as America approaches her third of three 'hits' from transiting Saturn to US natal Saturn (a 'Saturn Return' which occurs approximately every 28 years: accountability issues must be addressed) I am put in mind as I watch and listen to the debt brouhaha on Capitol Hill that the cold water of tr Saturn (restriction; denial; delays) stamped its signature upon Mr. Obama's presidency and America's n Neptune (hopes, dreams, ideals)...in Virgo, sign of Work and Health. (Being without work or income greatly affects one's mental, emotional, and physical health.)

Tr Saturn saluted US n Neptune on August 27, 2009 and that evening, Mars was closest to Earth as calculated at the International Planetarium in Vancouver, B.C. by way of a code (mathematical formula) found on a pyramid near the Observatory Hotel in Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico. That night Mars (in Tropical Cancer)looked like a second Moon! Are sky-watchers the Maya now considered the Greeks of America?

Of particular note politically is the handy timing device of the parallel between tr Saturn and US n Neptune (similar to a strong conjunction) which formed on September 10, 2009, an interesting date in Politics. Challenging, confrontational Mars in Cancer was just passing US n Jupiter and about to conjoin US n Sun, the president and this was the evening that President Obama addressed a Joint Session of Congress to urge the passing of his health care reform bill (more insurance reform, really) and was rudely interrupted by Joe Wilson's martian shout of "You lie!"

(Noting that the "You lie!" interruption of Mr. Obama - SN conj Hopi: see Tea Party info below - is paralleled or echoed by the current and reputed interruptions of him by Republican Eric Cantor during their debt ceiling 'negotiations' at the White House. John Boehner as Speaker of the House is the one who should be talkin' to the president, not lowly Representative Cantor.)

And now in 2011, somewhere between Saturnian realism and Neptunian lies, left twisting in the wind are the American people. Ill-served (Neptune in Virgo, the Server) by a double-dealing, warring government, robbed of pension funds, employment, and hard-won bargaining rights with management (Saturn), we-the-people are forced to wonder if the politicians of Washington DC are still able to govern a sovereign nation at all with their visionary (perhaps self-deceptive) Neptunian ideology getting in the way of practical concerns and needs.

Too bad we can't tie Tossing Out Every Top Government Official (especially those in Congress) irrevocably to the proposed Default of August 2, 2011, a speculative Jupiter-Neptune circumstance which, if allowed, will effectively toss out the American people if the US defaults on its debts, since WE should be the last ones standing in America--not the select few who pretend to govern while driving our nation off a financial cliff for the sake of their one-world-government vision...Saturn (government) Neptune (vision) as inspired long ago by a mercurial Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power.

Hey! Did you miss the dual charts of the Tea Party Convention (Feb 4 - 6, 2010) in Nashville, TN? Some amazing astro-factors are shown (click image to enlarge horoscopes) as sunrise on February 4, 2010 in Nashville brought up Sarah Palin's natal trio of Sun-Mars-Saturn @ 22AQ - 26AQ.)

The Tail of the Dragon (South Node, SN) conjoins tr asteroid Hopi, keywords: ambush; prejudice which seems to me is a theme of the Tea Party's challenge to Barack Obama. Sorry, but there it is, right there in the chart. This doesn't mean that all Tea Partisans are racist, only that those at the top either feel that way or have determined that their political advantage is assured by appealing to that nasty prejudicial strain in the American psyche - even though the majority of us come from generations of immigrants of all skin colors. Crazy!

In the symbolic 'end of the Convention' chart set for 11:59 pm February 6, 2010, two interlocked YODs (crisis; crossroads; special task) appear with Mars/Saturn at the base of one (YOD pattern (Mars-Saturn on one level is Mrs. Palin), and Jupiter/Pluto as the base of the second YOD; Jupiter-Pluto = wealthy preachers and the corporate funders and backers who, for one thing, have hijacked the leadership role of the Tea Party--here, I trustingly assume that the TP was ever a 'grass roots' movement rather than the externally controlled astro-turf model the national organization now resembles.

Well, on the Convention's last night, February 6, 2010, the key asteroid has to be Hidalgo, one of the power archetypes with a social climbing vibe, which was, at 11:59 pm, perfectly mirrored by the light of the Moon @ 3Sag06 = a woman; publicity, conjoining powerful Hidalgo...synchronistically @ 3Sag06!

No, I can't count Sarah 'Sun-Mars-Saturn' Palin out of the Jupiter-Pluto-funded 2012 presidential race just yet. Sad to say. jc
