John Adams defines Revolution; America's Saturn/Neptune Revisited

Wall Street Tyranny, Revolution Defined, Saturn/Neptune, and a Sabian Symbol for the Ages

by Jude Cowell

From perpetual wars of imperialism to Wall Street bankers and global elites crashing the US economy, the 'New Millennium' has brought not the so-called "New Age" of skipping about with flowers in our hair, but dire conditions and chaos purposefully created by what seems to be a select few of unelected, ivory towered holier-than-thous signified in mundane astrology charts by Pluto.

And when combined with other planets, the branches of plutonians are even more closely described and identified--ex: Jupiter/Pluto = the Fed, the World Bank or bankers, the IMF, the WTO, those who mount large scale projects--even as the Vatican (Pluto = the pope; Jupiter = the hierophant, priest) and other bigwig religious 'leaders' who skulk the halls of earthly power.

Now if you've read Stars Over Washington before, you know that I often fuss about plutonian topics while posting articles, videos, and horoscopes blended with my own personal comments and analyses on Politics, Washington DC, corruption, the US Congress, esoteric subjects (ex: Max Igan videos), Astrology, Freemason/Illuminati info, and other topics that interest or annoy me--all on behalf of my country, America--a nation whose sovereignty I'd prefer to see continued, thanks. (My former residence of Washington DC and the perfidies of the US Congress and White Lodge--er, House, notwithstanding.)

Well, it is my blog, right? And no other writers lounge about SO'W unless noted with credit for their work.

So today I'm feeling Adams-y/Jefferson-y, even though they were Freemasons, which was the organization to join in their day if you wanted to get ahead in life and business. Actually, it's much the same in 2011, isn't it? Perhaps the worm entered the American apple when Weishaupt's Illuminati gained a hoof-hold with Jefferson, Paine, and others, and Rosicrucianism (Franklin, and probably Jefferson) blended into the secretive government mix as well from our nation's earliest days. Infiltration is the Illuminati's middle name--and the CFR has used infiltration of government institutions as a tactic since the secretive organization's inception, as have others of a similar take-over persuasion.

There May Be Clues in America's Natal Horoscope

US natal Saturn (14Lib48) = government; US natal Neptune (22Vir25) = hidden, secret, invisible. On July 4, 1776, the two planets were a mere 22 degrees 23 minutes apart, though the Founders were assumed to be unaware of Neptune's existence. Now that has always fascinated me since we as astrologers can glean things about the US horoscope which they (astrologers as they were) could not have known we would know...same with Pluto, though revolutionary, disruptive Uranus, so linked to America's principles and behavior, was discovered in their time--in 1781, between the American and the French Revolutions, and describing both.

And if we use the Sibly version of the US chart (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA), we find that its Midheaven (Goal; Aspiration; Public Standing or Status) = 00Lib53--a mere 3 degrees 36 minutes from our natal Saturn/Neptune midpoint. This suggests (to my sleuthing, conspiratorial mind) that 3 years 5 or 6 months after July 4, 1776, a goal (MC) was effected concerning an invisible, hidden, or secret government (Saturn/Neptune)--was a satanic Illuminati hoof-hold gained?

This takes us to December 1779-- January 1780 and is worth a look into historical events during that time period--though machinations of secret societies will not be found in history written by The Establishment (Saturn!) A book such as Nicholas Hagger's The Secret History of the West is a better source and it is extensively researched, plus, you may know of other books or websites that reveal more than the usual line on American history. Funny how the usual sources tend to totally leave out which secret society influenced whom and instigated which event!

In case you're wondering, the midpoint picture created in progressions during that time frame by America's 9th house Neptune and 10th house Saturn is:

Saturn/Neptune = MC: wavering between materialistic and idealistic inclinations; a peculiar character (or characters); losing courage quickly; emotional suffering. (Ebertin.) (Other midpoint sources reveal more, of course, but I don't have them with me today and won't until next week.) As always, any, all, or none may apply.

Yes, the combo of Saturn/Neptune may bring loss and grief and unfortunately, we don't have to look far afield to find that in 2011, do we? Especially since transiting Saturn brought 'grim reality' to US natal Neptune a year or so ago--with a simultaneous transit of dissolving Neptune to US natal Moon (we-the-people) which is still within orb in late Aquarius, and brought home foreclosures, refugeeism, unstable social conditions, fraud, loss, and grand schemes that seldom if ever pan out.

Quite a double blow to the people's hopes and dreams of beneficial change a la the Obama administration! Maybe that's part of why the GOP ran an old man and a wild woman against him--they wanted to sit out these transits! And one astrologer on the Republican payroll would have easily seen both transits coming from several decades away. (That's the venerable art and science of Astrology--bringing to the table the element of Time which no other system for analysis can.)

Now here's a quote from our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson, which in 2011 may be applied to the steady drip drip of many decades if not centuries as certain groups attempt to overthrow democracy and collapse America (financially, politically, and socially) so that 'global government' (another indication of Saturn/Neptune involvement since staid Saturn must rule, and secretive Neptune must merge) may be finally implemented according to a totalitarian template as promoted by satanists like Adam Weishaupt whose Illuminati symbols decorate America's Great Seal and paper currency:

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers (administrators) too plainly proves a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery." -Thomas Jefferson

And concerning the current societal topic in the news of "is it time for revolution in America?", here is a brief, familiar excerpt from one of the letters sent from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, dated August 24, 1815 (yet we know that the two Founders were well aware that posterity would read their sentiments--after years of not speaking, the letters gave them a chance to re-envision their past actions and justify their original intentions! Some say that Adams was against Illuminati influence in America, while Jefferson was for it which may have been at the base of the break in their earlier friendship):

"What do we mean by Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760--1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington."

Now 2012 Cometh

Is it possible that The Awakening of 2012, if indeed it occurs, relates to a similar "revolution in the minds of the people"? Well, astrologers have been tracking the ongoing Cardinal Grand Cross of planets which began in Spring 2010 with its generational squares between Saturn/Pluto, and Uranus/Pluto, for example, with both combinations bringing frustration, hardship, cruelty, and revolt across the face of the planet--and now in America (ex: Occupy Wall Street protests in NYC and elsewhere.)

Then there is a Sabian Symbol that obviously applies to our topic: '30 Cancer' = "A Daughter of the American Revolution" which Dane Rudhyar explains as:

"Keynote: The prestige and conservatism of a long-maintained heritage.

Here we have a symbol of the proud preservation of socio-cultural values in tradition. After several generations the ancestor who was perhaps a violent revolutionist or rabble-rouser--or even a fugitive from justice--acquires a halo of respectability. fThe tradition that once was born of revolution now extols "law and order", attempting to suppress any new forms of the revolutionary spirit."

(This symbol refers) "...mainly to the consolidation and concretization of life urges within a stable form of organization. In many instances the scenes presented picture social activities or events, yet at this stage it is the individual person and the problems attendant upon his development that are primarily considered."

('30Can' is) " example of what occurs when the individual chooses a path which totally embodies and glorifies tradition, a past which ends in a GLORIFICATION OF THE PAST."

Might it be possible to gage a time frame in which another of what John Adams described as a "revolution in the minds of the people" might have begun?

Well, if I had to hazard an astrological guess, an obvious choice of time frames would have to be the Solar Eclipse of July 22, 2009 @ a critical-crisis degree of 29Can27--rounded up, it's the DAR degree of '30 Cancer'. This points to the extreme opposition of the GOP and the Tea Party (and their secretive backers) to the presidency and person of Barack Obama which is ongoing, and if anything, more virulent as his term goes on.

You may wish to click to view the July 2009 Eclipse horoscope which contains many correlations to current transits and to US natal placements--even Inaugural Moon 2009 shows up. Then click to enlarge the chart and read additional notes--you'll see that Venus is @ 18Gem, the Venus Transit degree that occurred during the G-20 Summit on Sea Island, Georgia in June 2004--and it looks as if Putin will be re-joining the old gang of bosses again soon as Russia's president deja-vu.

John Adams A-Rollin' in His Grave

No, the 'mental revolution' and physical revolts are not only for opposing President Obama (the black fellow inhabiting the White House) as evidenced by the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011 and push backs against austerity measures in Wisconsin and elsewhere--with more revolts to come. For the July 2009 eclipse (11 South Saros Series) is the "systems fail, new methods are needed" eclipse which was part of the bankster-induced financial crisis as the president instituted initiatives to "reform" Wall Street which kinda-sorta helped Main Street but has done little to create jobs for we-the-people.

For jobs creation, Mr. Obama's initiatives need the financial and corporate industries to cooperate with the program in a communal spirit but as we've seen, they're not about to do that unless and until they are made to pay taxes to help support this nation. And most corporations don't seem at all interested in preserving American traditions, do they?

For more on similar themes such as 2012 and secretive, strange political bedfellows, try the Venus Occultation of June 5, 2012, another marker of change in the way modern America does things and which will probably not 'glorify past traditions' but toss them over on behalf of a new system.

Wall Streeters mock Occupy Wall Street marchers w champagne toasts (video)

Feeling mighty special, Wall Streeters with champagne glasses in hand, mock and smirk from their exalted balconies at Occupy Wall Street protesters below. How tres amusing their ef-you jokes must be!

What was that you say, dear reader? Pride comes before a fall?

Then smirk on, Wall Street gentry, for your day in the sun won't last forever and you'll reap the mocking you've sown.

This blogger of the Flower Power generation is heartened by how most of the protesters are young folk--it's a deja-vu of peaceful street marches for me. For after all, it's in large part their futures that have been stolen by Wall Street gangsters many of whom are of my generation, I'm very embarrassed to say.

Charles Koch to Economist Hayek: "Use Social Security"!

Well, the following article is so fascinating, its link just had to be posted here to read any time I start to forget what total hypocrites all anti-social-program conservatives are whether they call themselves Republican, Libertarian, Tea Party, or what-have-you--even *DINOs.

Letters have been outed from 1973 with Charles Koch (a Koch Industries brother and Tea Party backer) writing to famed laissez-faire economist Friedrich Hayek encouraging him to "use Social Security to support his medical needs. Hayek had taught in the US and paid into our SS system for ten years so Koch assured him he was entitled to what Koch and his ilk now like to call an "entitlement program."

You see, the professor had had some gall bladder surgery in Austria and feared "falling ill away from home" if he returned to the US to pontificate his economic theories.

But not to fear! For America's excellent Social Security insurance program came to Hayek's rescue!!

Personally, I think America's so-called "Ponzi scheme" should have been given a satin cape years ago. Besides--a Ponzi scheme isn't much of a Ponzi scheme unless and until it's stopped, at which time it collapses from its own weight--precisely the aim of the GOP and those such as the Koch Brothers who are determined that Wall Street get its greedy claws on the money while crashing our nation in the process.

And then, who can forget those halcyon days of 'President' George Bush schlepping round the country (on the tax payers' dime) peddling his disengenuous sales pitch about privatizing Social Security? Yet alas, his thin arguments didn't go over very well, did they? And though they've been fairly well shushed on the matter for now, GOP schemers continue to parrot the "SS is bankrupt" slogan whenever they feel so moved.

Now as you know, Dubya considers not privatizing the program that has made such a difference in millions of American lives (and in the lives of the odd foreigner, as we learn above) to be the "biggest failure" of his presidency--not invading the Holy Land, not bombing women and children, nor cynically sending US troops overseas to grab and guard US oil interests and fatten power elite portfolios--not even dooming America and the world to the misery of perpetual war--but to not handing SS monies on a golden platter to his Wall Street backers as the bankers who run the US government insisted.

So here's the Worst President in US History now, if you can stomach a re-listen of his attempt to sell us bank bailouts and TARP. But what he's actually doing is summing up the financials of his disastrous 8-year presidency::

Funny that the much-touted and obsessive conservative fear of "socialism" from the Obama administration ignores a key astrological factor concerning George Bush's natal chart which has always seemed very telling to me about Bush's hidden character--the Sabian Symbol (8 Leo) for his natal Ascendant (his nibs himself) is: "A Bolshevik Propagandist."

Or, as Dane Rudhyar gives the degree--and to me it seems to apply perfectly to Bush's 'Privatize SS You Suckers' Tour:

"A Communist Activist Spreading His Revolutionary Ideals"...

'Keynote: The emotional and ideological attempt to return to a state of non-differentiation and chaos as a prelude to a new type of order.'

(That would be Poppy Bush's 'New World Order' heralded by his Desert Storm invasion.)

Rudhyar expands on 8 Leo: "...ideally it could show how the vision of a cosmic order might heal the potential conflict between an obsolete Establishment and its youthful challengers. But reality today presents a more cruel picture of CATABOLIC ACTION.

...and one witnesses a struggle for personal and dictatorial power."

I'm not kidding--you can't make this stuff up!


*Democrats In Name Only, and close cousins of RINOs.

The first Symbol is from Marc Edmund Jones' The Sabian Symbols in Astrology; Rudhyar's book, An Astrological Mandala.

Heads Up! Listeria-laden cantaloupes shipped to 17 states so far

A deadly bacteria Listeria comes along with whole cantaloupes shipped between July 29 and September 14, 2011 by Colorado's Jensen Farms to 17 states with wider distribution possible. Listeria grows in moist refrigerators so more illnesses and deaths are expected in the coming days and weeks.

Here's the Listeria press announcement from the CDC if you're concerned.

The 17 states are: Illinois, Tennessee, Wyoming, Utah, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, North Carolina, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Why, it was only in June 2011 that House Republicans voted to cut FDA funding saying that the "US food supply is 99% safe."

Mmm. Yes. But the GOP isn't.

Well, perhaps the GOP can explain to the families of the 13 dead (so far) and 72 cases of illness (so far) from Listeria-contaminated cantaloupe how they came up with their dubious "99%" assurance. Or is it that the power elite have a different food supply from the rest of us?

For more on Listeria, The Guardian has published information on who's vulnerable to Listeria--the young, the old, and the immune system compromised among us--and what to do to avoid the contamination.


For further reading try Solar and Lunar Eclipses of 2011 (the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse Horoscope is shown and leads the year, there were two Solar Eclipses--on June 1 and a brand new Saros Series began on July 1--plus we have a Solar Eclipse on November 25, 2011 and a Lunar Eclipse on December 10, 2011 left to go.)

Enlightenment! and a Curious Transit to Thomas Paine's Natal Chart

Thomas Paine = Illuminati, Uranus in Aries = Radical Utopians: America's Destiny?

by Jude Cowell

Since I wrote a piece in 2006 on the Sun to Chiron-Chiron to Sun double transit to the natal horoscope of Thomas Paine, I have read more references to Paine as a Freemason (already known) and as one of the Illuminati of his day.

And if you've read this blog before, you know I'm not fond of those who descend either biologically or ideologically from Weishaupt's Illuminati sect nor am I fond of their global domination plans which seem in 2011 to be well underway for major implementation, perhaps within the much-touted and often feared Year 2012. Yet even they are subject to the natural law of karma and must reap what they sow, much as they prefer to think otherwise.

After all, in 2012 a major market crash is predicted by astrologers and economists alike which is the 'crisis of opportunity' ploy of operatives such as Henry Kissinger and others you and I could name. For Financial Astrology of the markets, I recommend the work of mundane astrologer Theodore White at Global Astrology. Crash-forecasting economists are all over the place so you'll have no problem locating all you want.

Paine, Jefferson, Franklin, and Their Secretive Pal, Adam Weishaupt

Well, perhaps it's impossible to be certain whether Paine and his 18th century Illuminati colleagues such as Thomas Jefferson (a Freemason and Illuminatist--Ben Franklin was a Mason and Rosicrucian, plus, a Rosicrucian decoder was found at Monticello in Jefferson's effects after his death) were duped by Weishaupt's Utopian ruse of an eventual America where we'd all skip around the Sweet Williams while ripe fruit fell from the vines and "reason" would 'perfect' us, making laws unnecessary)--or, whether they were complicit in wanting to establish a totalitarian (Orwellian) regime of complete surveillance and servitude as America's eventual destiny.

Yes, I do have a difficult time meshing the legends of our Founding Fathers based on what what they did and believed in the 1770s and beyond with Weishaupt's devilish Utopian ideals for complete control of mankind. Many of America's founders were Deists yet the principles of the Age of Reason (or, Age of Enlightenment) show a strain of naivety embedded in the same old argument set up by Lucifer--that mankind doesn't need heavenly precepts but can 'do it by himself'.

Speaking as a Christian, their 'Reason Is All' illusion is bosh to me!

Of course, astrologically speaking, man's reasoning ability is a function of Mercury with one of the Enlightenment's favorite planets, Uranus (The Awakener; The Witness), acting as Mercury's higher octave of creative inspiration--the visionary idea of genius that arrives suddenly like a bolt from the blue. I suspect ace deceiver Adam Weishaupt had a lot of such moments, at least in his own estimation.

One clue concerning the awareness of our Founding Fathers of America's ultimate Illuminati-esque destiny has to be the mysterious case of the Cloaked Man in Jefferson's Garden--the one who allegedly rode up out of the darkness with the design for America's Great Seal at-the-ready as Jefferson took a break from consideration of the design along with his colleagues. Perhaps it happened that way, perhaps not. And perhaps Thomas Paine, newly returned from France, WAS that man, as some believe, and I can't deny that the theory of the mystery man's identity as Paine is plausible (and he may also have been co-author of the Declaration of Independence with Jefferson)--if so, he was acting as an agent of Adam Weishaupt when he delivered the seal.

Check out the reverse of the Great Seal, if you haven't, or look at a dollar bill if you have one. The pyramid with the all-seeing eye as capstone is certainly of a Masonic persuasion and the all-seeing eye of surveillance may be said to point forward toward intrusive spy satellites circling the Earth as I type (and agencies monitoring our blogs, websites, emails, and bank accounts!)

And the "1776" on the seal and on paper currency may not actually refer to America's founding year but to the founding by Weishaupt of the Bavarian Illuminati Society on May 1, 1776. Cussedly, we pay homage to the Illuminati by celebrating 'May Day.'

So did Paine, Jefferson, Franklin, and others look forward to the collapsing of America as a sovereign nation--the one they risked their lives, families, and fortunes to create? Is a weird, chaotic, and savage 'Utopia' just around the corner?

What do you think?

Well, in The Combination of Stellar Influences, Reinhold Ebertin gives Uranus in Aries, its present position, as "Utopians" so we know that since 2010 such political radicals are 'in the house'--in the 4th house of America's natal chart, Sibly version (IC 00Ari53, conjunct the Aries Point of World Manifestation (00Ari00); IC = Endings; The Drain; the HOW? Point of any chart...instruments of our nation's demise?)

Uranus to IC may also relate to the House of Congress and the anarchistic, gridlocking Tea Party members (see a list of their names in this blog's sidebar) who campaigned on returning America to her former glory--a sentiment along the lines of Weishaupt's Utopian Dream of mankind's return to the Garden of Eden. But it seems to me that if that were possible, mankind would need God's cooperation to effect such a major change! And Weishaupt was anti-religion and anti-God--sorry, but man's 'reason' just can't do it.

And neither can 'religioso' candidates Michele Bachmann or Rick Perry.


Plus, the Bush-Cheney regime bombed the Holy Land where the Garden was located to smithereens, an indefensible action if one wants to cavort in the original Eden once again, and an imperial agenda which President Obama has followed since January 2009. Of course, as noted on this blog in 2008, Mr. Obama cannot discontinue the agenda of the plutonian one-world-government types because they and their bankers installed him in the White House and can take him out at their discretion if he doesn't play the Big Game to suit them. 'They' turn up these days in horoscopes as manipulative saboteur Pluto, apex planet in dynamic patterns such as T-Squares and the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Well, soon transiting Uranus will return to Aries Point and conjoin the US IC again with much upheaval, but since I'm blogging away from home this week, I don't have my Astrology software or an ephemeris to remind me of the date. Perhaps you'll wish to check it out for the US may experience an event on or near that date which relates to the disturbing topics mentioned in this post.

Now one never knows what quirky, disruptive Uranus will catalyze into action, early, on time, or belatedly. But one thing we can depend on--that the radical Thomas Paine will not be awakening from his Eternal Rest for his work here on Earth, whatever it may have been and for whatever reason, is most definitely done.


For Sun/Chiron info ('destiny unfolding'), please click on the link to Thomas Paine's double transit of 2006; for Cardinal Grand Cross/Crisis info, click on the Global Astrology link above.

As you know, the scientific Age of Enlightenment was marked by a Great Conjunction of futurist Uranus and dreamy Neptune at mid-Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker on a Quest. Their last Great Conjunction/s--three times through 1993--marks the furthering of the New World Order which makes Uranus and Neptune the significators of the one-world-government vision of the Illuminati.

Ebertin gives their combination of energies as "inner illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, idealism, an interest in spiritual subjects, religious problems, mysticism, the growth of subconscious powers or forces." 1993's three conjunctions occurred at or very near '18 Capricorn' = "POLITICAL POWER"...negative (unconscious/shadow side) expression: "smug or strong-armed paternalism"--a 2011 example would be the Occupy Wall Street protests as NYC police strong-arm peaceful demonstrators--our fellow Americans demanding that Wall Street fraudsters pay for their crimes.

Wonder whose side America's founders would be on if they only knew?

New Moon at '4Lib' = "Unbeaten Paths Illumined" 9.27.11

Sept 27, 2011's New Moon @ 4Libra = "Unbeaten Paths Illumined"

by Jude Cowell

A new cycle of activity began today with a New Moon in balancing Libra and it perfected at 7:08:36 am edt, so you've probably seen the New Moon horoscope set for the White House, right?

Therefore, it is very timely to consider in mundane fashion the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon's emphasized degree which arose in the DC chart with Ascendant @ 4Lib51; then I'll include the next degree of '5Lib' for good measure since the 360 degrees of the Zodiac--the Circle of Life--represent evolutionary progress as one degree morphs into the next. Today I'm quoting only Dane Rudhyar's An Astrological Mandala because I'm without my usual library this week and am blogging at you from historic Acworth, Georgia (about a hour north of Atlanta.)

If you tend to ponder such topics such as one-world-government, New World Order, Illuminati, King of Jerusalem, Merovingian bloodline, Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, and/or the Global Power Elite, the following info on today's New Moon may be somewhat unsettling--yet such are the times in which we stew. So if you're faint of heart, dear reader, I suggest you cut and run now lest you soon realize the implications of this new cycle of activity and the degrees it emphasizes.

'4Lib' = "Around a Campfire a Group of Young People Sit in Spiritual Communion"...Keynote: The necessity to unite with kindred spirits as one enters unbeaten paths illuminated by the still-insecure light of a dawning intuition of new values.

As one partially visionary leader said a few years ago: "Beaten paths are for beaten men." The urge to create a new society and respond to new values leads the pioneer to the wilds, which represent the state of planetary possibility--i.e. the as-yet-uncultured, the virgin forest. Around the fire of a common dedication (or at least a common hope!) minds and bodies can commune, forming a "chalice" or Grail for the reception of creative inspiration.


If a new society is to be built, those who yearn for it (ex: Henry Kissinger, GHWB, other power elites and monarchic heads--jc) or perhaps have envisioned its outlines (Bilderbergers, CFR, IMF, Club of Rome, etc--jc), should commune. But communion is useless where no central "fire" burns, IN-SPIRITING the group.

Note: It seems the world is due for a mysterious scandal, crime--or death--as noted by the rather sinister Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37. if such a death occurs from Nov 2011 into 2012 and an 'eternal flame' is placed over the grave site of a notable individual or individuals, we may wish to consider its 'fire' to be a calling card of the Illuminati or the defunct group's biological and ideological descendants who now labor to institute, after years of planning, their psychotic recipe for a totalitarian world regime.

It gets worse...

'5Lib' = "A Man Revealing to His Students the Foundation of an Inner Knowledge Upon Which a "New World" Could Be Built"...Keynote: The necessity for the youthful spirits to learn from a Teacher who through his long experience has been able to reach solid and illuminating truths, i.e. "seed ideas."

An old saying is just as valid today as ever: When the pupil is ready, the Master appears. But he may appear in many disguises. What matters is not the Master, but the Mastery he "re-veals." It is veiled in his person. It has to be contacted through his person, rather than in his person. Devotion to a guru may be the way, but sooner or later it should be transmuted into reverence: the truth within the disciple saluting in true humility the truth in the Teacher.


What is evoked by the symbol is the essential, withal rather mysterious, process of TRANSMISSION. What is transmitted, if the situation is really adequate and understood (at least tentatively) by all participants, is not merely knowledge. It is actually "being-ness."

And naturally you thought of how New Moons lead two weeks later to Full Moons which mark the fulfillment or culmination of something begun at the last New Moon, the seeding phase of all new cycles.

And for a 'guru'? Perhaps you thought of Bavarian Illuminati founder and guru of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin Adam Weishaupt?


Too weighty for you? Rather forgeddaboudit? As you wish. Of course, I don't blame you in the least--maybe you'd rather mosey over for a view of some lunar-inspired artwork on display in one of my art gallery blogs, Secret Moon Art! jc

UK's Nigel Farage to Parliament on the EU Crisis (must-see video); Pluto in Capricorn

A year or so ago, the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage gave a clear-eyed and forceful assessment of the European debt crisis and a scalding critique of those with "bunker mentality" who are "happy to destroy democracy" while untold millions suffer and fanatics v the Euro sceptic movement continue denying reality in an attempt to implement their Euro Dream.

Among several other things, "--the game is up," he tells them. "--your fanaticism is out in the open," says he and I can hardly agree more with Mr. Farage's sentiments especially since, due to its global nature, the tentacles of the one-world-government conspiracy stretch deeply into American Politics as well, as we now see in Benton Harbor, MI, Madison, WI, Washington DC, and elsewhere across our land.

Now here's a previous post which details the birth data and natal planetary positions of the European Union; included is an explanation of the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series in which the Union was born (created.)

With ongoing troubles looming over the EU's economy and with its continued existence placed in doubt by certain people--as noted by Mr. Farage in the video above--factions work to undermine the Union, and it is with trepidation that I mention the fact that the EU's PE repeats on November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37, a zodiacal degree at the Foundation (IC, the HOW? Point) of the Autumn Equinox 2011 Horoscope.

In a post subtitled Drastic Measures, the Autumn Equinox 2011 chart is set for Washington DC. if you wish a peek. To me, this indicates what commentators, talking heads, economists, and others have been saying--that the European debt crisis may indeed undermine the American economy and world stock markets with negativity as its effects spread across the globe. It already has, as you know.

And once again, as we've seen since 2010 with the Cardinal Grand Cross ('Cardinal Climax' or 'Crisis') configuration in action-oriented Cardinal signs (Ari/Lib, Can/Cap), Pluto in Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business, is most often the focal player (apex) planet (actor) making ultimate, string-pulling decisions that adversely affect world populations. In view of underworld Pluto's agenda and strategy for global domination, this is bad news for anyone who thinks to stand in the way of wealthy plutonian overlords and their treasured goals.

So to echo Mr.Farage: who in hell does Pluto think he is?

Why, he's the god of Hades, that's who. And a perfect representative in Mundane Astrology for the satanic force and its earthly servants and politicians who now plague decent people everywhere as these anarchists work to force upon us their dream of a regressive Utopia of austerity and deprivation for us while they themselves benefit from the world's abundant resources.

Yes, you are correct: it's jackassian politics being practiced all around!

UPDATE Sept 28, 2011: please read Comments below this post--I wrote in confused fashion concerning Euro sceptics and Gawain Towler of the UKIP has clarified the issue of who the EU fanatics are--thanks, Gawain! Jude

A Daft US Government Teeters on Backs of the Poor Sept 2011

How Purposeful Washington's Political Games Now Seem

by Jude Cowell

All logic tossed out the window, there are factions in the US determined to topple our republic and one of their tactics is to pile responsibility for current, dire financial straights onto the "backs of the poor" with President Obama at the helm and, one must assume, complicit in a radical and daft recipe for systemic collapse.

("We will bury you", pronounced Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev to America during my childhood. Thanks for that memory, Nikki. But you're just another in a long line of jackassian politicians in my book.)

Well, Ray McGovern's article Obama on the Backs of the Poor from August 3, 2011 is worth a second look if you've had a first--or is a not-to-be-missed if you did. Apparently daftness and perfidy masquerading as recklessness rules Washington Politics more than ever though I will not give passes for those who mismanage by design. To paraphrase Max Igan, US government officials and workers are in breach of contract as our employees if they don't effectively do the jobs that come with their positions.

As one-world-government types like to parrot loudly: rule of law! --which should effectively include lawmakers, their minions, staffs, operatives, and all bureaucrats.

A difference though is that the VP and President are not actually elected by the people but by the squirrelly electoral college of muckedy mucks. Perhaps one of the big 'secrets' of America's 'invisible' government from founding times is that the aristocrats won the lotto and most of the spoils which often accrued and accrue from the labor of working men and women.

My, how we haven't spiritually progressed as factions work tirelessly to make providing for the 'general welfare' a thing of the past--it's been made to seem "too expensive" to waste money on the poor and disadvantaged. Has compassion become old-fashioned in America? Then we-the-people must lift it up!

A Quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Growing up within an hour or so from the reverend's home church in Atlanta, Ga, I remember hearing his voice and words on radio, TV, and in the news. As noted in the article above, *Rev. Martin Luther King Jr in a 1950s era speech said this:

"A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on an installment plan."

For me this follows Biblical examples of consumption of rich foods (and in our cases, foods contaminated with toxins and re-engineered with frankensteinian intent--some would cry, "eugenics" or "guinea-pig-ism") causing physical and mental weakness rather than imparting strength as nutritious food should do, and causing a constant undermining of health on many levels and during all decades of our lives.


*On using a quote from Dr. King on SO'W, it's happened before yet I admit to reading some information recently on his alleged connections to communist groups or individuals--but i am not convinced. For given the blatant hounding of the popular leader who could sway the masses, awaken our Higher Natures, and beneficially affect our social order in the process, his opponents' assertions about him are difficult to trust. And as Dr. King's Chiron-in-Pisces pastorship began meshing issues of Civil Rights, Workers' Rights, and the Peace Movement under his revival tent, he was then seen as a dangerous man by certain 'special' interests having a larger agenda to force one-world-government--the one we now see being implemented more openly than before as their trap is almost set.

And it was as President that George H. W. Bush first publicly intoned the term "new world order" in speeches along with a chilling promise (aka, threat) that the shadowy 'they' will be successful imposing a totalitarian, Saturnian-Neptunian system over the entire globe and over what they are determined will be a surveillance-police state-America risen from the ashes, the Illuminati's spying all-seeing-eye over the 13-step pyramid's missing capstone on the never-officially used and masonic- symbol-ridden reverse side of America's Great Seal.

A Saturn-Neptune Spot Check 2011

Saturn (government; systems; restrictions) with Neptune (secret; veils; the masses; the media; paranoia) denotes 'secret' or 'invisible' 'government' which shows in America's natal chart/s of July 4, 1776 with Saturn @ 14Lib48, and Neptune @ 22Vir25 (conjoined with the natal Mars of Barack Obama.) In our oft-utilized natal chart set for 5:10 pm LMT, we see the midpoint of the Secret Government pair @ 3Lib37--close enough in orb to the New Moon of September 27, 2011 @ 4Lib00 to indicate a 'new cycle of activity' beginning in relation to America's secret or invisible government plans and policies.

Of late. transit Uranus in early Aries ('Utopians' according to Ebertin) has been triggering or catalyzing the midpoint of US natal Saturn/Neptune...n Sat/Nep = tr Uranus: sudden weaknesses emerge; excitability; irritability; peculiar inclinations; upsets cause illness; inner unrest (of a people or a nation.) (R. Ebertin; any, all, or none may apply.)

Of course, to reach the Sept 27 New Moon we must first enter and navigate the 3-day period of the Dark Moon when hidden things go bump in the night and society's infestations of satanic forces opportunistically act with even more impunity. Sudden emergence of financial weaknesses cannot be ruled out, as we've already seen of late. Plus, the Saturn-Neptune pair of energies also carries a 'materialism v idealism' connotation.

And though a Dark Moon phase is an excellent time to lay low or chillax, my thought is that for best results in coming days, beware too many entertaining distractions because these people play for keeps, y'all, 2012 is upon our doorsteps, and from Sept 27's New Moon into 2012/13 will mark a watershed phase for all of humanity. Messing this up is not an option, really.

(You may wish to see my previous post on the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 2Sag37--perhaps it's in the Top Ten Posts feed in the sidebar below--since it's the last celestial 'wild card of the Universe' of 2011 in solar fashion and ushers in Year 2012. The receptive Lunar Eclipse of December 10, 2011 is near the top of my to-blog list and is coming to this blog in the next week or two--it will be the cosmic companion of the Solar Eclipse of Nov 25, 2011 and both will do the 2012 ushering.)

Another thought to mention concerning President Obama is that he and MLK share the natal placement of Chiron in mystical Pisces (a Seeker on a Quest, perhaps for the 'Holy Grail'), and BHO is now in the midst of his Chiron Return, a numinous passage in life which occurs around age 50 that, in his case, is a five-fer (5 conjunctions of transit Chiron to his natal Chiron's zodiacal position.) This perfectly timed synchronicity lengthens the timeframe of the course of lessons the Wounded Healer will be teaching Pres. Obama, age 50--including the eternal one about "Be Here Now". jc

Oh Yes We Do Have Power! 'The Awakening' Max Igan (full movie)

Reality = Saturn; Awakening = Uranus

by Jude Cowell

There may be little better I can do for anyone than to post Max Igan's movie The Awakening to this website for those who choose to escape the false reality in which all of us are deluded and enmeshed. This presentation may aid someone to gain the best ideas on what to do about hidden ensnarements and the illusions they inspire.

"Reality exists As Above, So Below," says Mr. Igan, and I know of no astrologer who would disagree with that!

Plus, both Saturn and Uranus rule Astrology though I tend to say that Uranus is a higher octave planet which vibrates at higher frequencies and co-rules the Ancient Art with both planets linked to the Air (mental) sign Aquarius, the Water Bearer, pouring out ether and spirit across the cosmos to aid humanity.


Is He Or Isn't He? Only The Great Mathematician knows for certain.

Yet thanks to CERN, physicist Albert Einstein is in process of being discredited--having his 'Einstein' status taken away, it seems, as Science updates itself--but here's a quote from him anyway:

"Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one."

Wonder if Einstein's well-studied Brain might be given an overly deserved rest now if modernists prove him wrong?

Guestimating by use of the Biblical 'year for a day' measurement, it's 2011, therefore 106 years have passed since Einstein's Theory of Relativity was published and made into an icon of universal knowledge. If we use the Zodiac to project from the number of years to a degree and sign, we have: 2011 - 1905 = 106 = 3 signs (90 degrees) from 106 = 16 Cancer (90 + 16 = 106.)

As you know, Dane Rudhyar is quite elucidating concerning that particular degree in his indispensable book, An Astrological Mandala:

'16Can' = "A Man Studying a Mandala in Front of Him, with the Help of a Very Ancient Book"...

"Keynote: A deep concern with problems raised by the process of personality integration."

(Note: of course the 'very ancient book' can be a reference to The Bible or to scrolls or manuscripts from olden times--even the reputed Great Plan for America embedded within Francis Bacon's The New Atlantis or its alleged sequel with a 'timetable' of the Illuminati's schedule for The Phoenix to arise from ashes--the MS the Rockefeller family may have possession of now after purloining it from the foundation vault of Bruton Parish Church, Williamsburg, VA, probably during Williamsburg renovations in 1926.)

Rudhyar goes on to say that '16Can' relates to "following a certain course of action, accepting a new allegiance" on the three basic levels of human life: 1. actional; 2. emotional-cultural; 3. individual-mental. Astrologically, these correspond to the levels described by progressing a horoscope using three methods: actional = Secondaries; emotional-cultural = Tertiaries, and individual-mental = Minors--the 1:13:27 ratio of existence on our dualistic planet Earth. (Blaschke.)

Accepting a new allegiance!

So if you watch (listen to) The Awakening, you'll note mention of human emotions (how 'the Matrix'-the false reality apparatus-- manipulates, reaches, sways us) and the undeniable fact that--for those who prefer a Living God to a death-worshiping entity--Love is the Foundation of the Universe!

And the "inward turning of attention" mentioned in Rudhyar's analysis of '16Can' dovetails with Max Igan's helpful information and with the spiritual concepts put forth in The Awakening, with The Cross of the physical plane (matter) being echoed by the Cardinal Grand Cross of squaring and opposing planetary energies the world struggles under these days representing "conflict in action."

Before deception must come self-deception...

Space Station's Aurora Movie a must-see!

Space Weather News for Sept 22, 2011

SPACE STATION AURORA MOVIE: Astronauts onboard the International Space Station have recorded their best views yet of auroras dancing in the high atmosphere of Earth during a geomagnetic storm on Sept 17. Their must-see movie, just released by NASA, is highlighted on today's edition of SpaceWeather News.

UARS RE-ENTRY UPDATE: NASA's massive UARS satellite remains on track to re-enter Earth's atmosphere during the late hours of Sept 23. The fireball will probably miss North America, according to latest estimates of UARS orbital elements, but almost every other continent falls under a possible re-entry ground track. Better estimates are expected in the next 24 hours. As it makes its last orbits, the tumbling satellite is flashing brightly in the night sky, attracting the attention of stargazers and photographers.

Autumn Equinox 2011 Horoscope: Drastic Measures

Horoscope: Autumn Equinox September 23, 2011 5:04 am edt

by Jude Cowell

Below is an image of the Autumn Equinox 2011 horoscope, the Libra Ingress, set for the White House, Washington DC; Hour Mars 2Leo37 conjunct President Obama's natal Mercury; chart-ruler Mercury 25Vir23 in 1st house makes two applying aspects: conjunct Sun (4A37), and opposite Uranus 2Ari41 Rx conjunct 8th cusp which conjoins US natal IC 00Ari53 (Sibly version of America's natal horoscope (5:10 pm LMT, July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, PA.)

The 8th cusp-Uranus-natal IC trio with Autumn Equinox Sun conjunct 2nd cusp indicates financial matters not coming together as expected so we must concentrate on what's working rather than on new methods. Compromise remains elusive as the president (Sun) knocks heads with radical political types (Uranus in Aries = Utopians, says Ebertin) over monetary policy and reform.

The embarrassing political and ideological battles continue into Spring 2012 and beyond as President Obama's character and suitability for office come even more under fire. And the whole world is watching as radical elements attempt to destroy our entire system of government, imperfect as it may be (and it is.) Thanks a lot, Ronald "Government Is Evil" Reagan, you really got the Destroy American ball rolling and the Dark Legacy of Reaganomics keeps on giving to the rich and taking from the poor.

And of course, the Deficit Reduction Committee's work is covered in the Autumn Equinox 2011 chart with the extraordinary power of a 'Super' Congress handed to 12 congress members which to my mind is unConstitutional. Their recommendations are due on November 23, 2011 in time for the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 2Sag37--sitting at the Foundation of the Autumn EQ 2011 horoscope!!

As you see, a few of President Obama's natal planets are penned in around the chart: rising is his natal Pluto in Virgo opposite natal Chiron which here sets (conj DESC--Chiron opposite Pluto = 'knight in shining armor' on a Quest); Mr. Obama's natal Moon in Gemini (publicity through speeches) is at Midheaven (MC = The Goal; Aspirations; Public Status) along with two midpoints which create angular pictures with the MC and one with Obama's natal Moon...any, all, or none may apply...

Mars/Uranus = MC: taking drastic measures; extraordinary achievements; putting a gun to someone's head; an inflexible character; an act of violence.

Note: on C-SPAN this morning, Charlie Rangel referred to people "putting a gun to (the president's) head."

Mars/Uranus = BHO natal Moon: feelings govern; a desire to achieve something very big; ambition.

Moon/Uranus = MC: excitement and great energy; pursuit of ambitious aims; determination; ready for action; taking a hand suddenly or interfering.

Mercury also rules the 10th house of Public Standing bwo Gemini which indicates changes on the world stage for the US--Gemini's Mercury relates to communications, plans, but also commerce and trade; plus, Fixed Star Mirfak (Alpha Perseus) is @ MC, keywords: young male energy with hunting and fighting abilities. (Brady.)

In any horoscope, a chart-ruler's applying aspects show how things will proceed. As mentioned above, Virgo is rising, so changeable Mercury 25Vir23 in 1st house rules the chart. The applying conjunction to the Sun will perfect on September 28 at 5Lib20...'6Lib' = "The Ideals of a Man Abundantly Crystallized" which may refer to the president's new push back stance gaining momentum.

Mercury opposing Uranus (7A18) shows oration, communications, and plans embroiled in quarrels, disagreements, and disruptions, and serious conflicts arise between the generations related to finances and ideologies. This opposition may also refer to social networking (Uranus) activism as young Americans (Mercury) get out on the streets in protest.

Now manipulative Pluto, pulling strings from behind the scenes (and from abroad) is apex planet in a YOD pattern ('Finger of God', special task, crisis, turning point, crossroads.) This is a very karmic configuration and, as we know, the crisis has been a long time coming (slow moving Pluto.)

Apex Pluto in a YOD formation shows those with fixated opinions and plans that have disturbing effects upon others (not that Pluto cares about others) and past conditions must die so that a new path is revealed; this Pluto represents those with high executive positions of authority who are determined to usher in a New Order.

Perhaps I don't need to tell you this, but the people represented by this anti-social Pluto hold extreme perspectives that are out of focus with society's views and values.

A midpoint picture is created from the YOD:

Mars/MC = Pluto: extraordinary zeal and great vigor; the desire to bring immense tasks to a successful conclusion.

Transit Pluto continues to oppose US natal Jupiter 5Can56 and denotes America's financial, political, and social struggles against powerful plutonian forces desiring to break down our nation and all civil institutions.

Yes, Pluto is very busy this Autumn as apex in a second planetary pattern--a T-Square between the Sun/Uranus opposition.

First, the midpoint picture:

Sun/Uranus = Pluto: radical reformers (we know!!); a desire to rearrange things (without the American people's consent!); tragic experiences; imprisonment;
very provoking others with constant rebellion and distractions; disruptions of events to gain recognition; direct attacks on the individuality of others to gain more notoriety for self or interests.

As apex in a Cardinal T-Square, Pluto denotes those with intense focus on objectives and an inability to compromise with others; sharing power is a non-starter, and explosive endings may be thought necessary in order to make a new start; again, this Pluto represents high powered executives--who feel much contempt for those they manipulate, and the case of this T-Square, those whose plans they block.

Well, if you click to enlarge the horoscope you may read a few other chart details, and there are other factors of note, of course. But since I'm readying for an out of town trip, I shall close for now and await your on-topic comments and opinions which I will moderate from an area near Atlanta, GA. in this, my favorite of the seasons, Autumn.

Occupy Wall Street Protests: Corralling the Bull (video)

It's been a busy couple of weeks here and since I'm feeling remiss for not blogging about the Occupy Wall Street protests that have been going on since Saturday September 17 in Zuccotti Park, NYC, here are two video reports on the situation.

It makes me proud to say that several hundred+ Americans are acting on their principles and though it's become quite novel these days for justice to triumph in America, it's way past time that the Bailouts of Big Banks become Jailouts.

Arrests and police brutality accompanied their peaceful demonstrations...and NY police 'corralled the Wall Street Bull'--to protect the statue from peaceful protestors, Americans to whom the sculptor Di Modica dedicated the beastly statue when it was installed in the middle of Broad Street on December 15, 1989!

How tragic that no one in authority has corralled the financial crooks of Wall Street to protect us from their bull.

And how interesting that the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the Bull's installation on December 15, 1989 is the 9 New South which repeated @ 19Virgo (not too far from US natal Neptune 22Vir25--Virgo, sign of Work and Employment) on *September 11, 2007 and is one background factor that timed the subprime mess leading to Financial Crash 2008.

9 New South = 'long term worries, paperwork, or communications issues are brought to the surface; a worrying piece of news arrives which may feel fated or karmic; responsibilities with paperwork come home to roost'. (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Oh, and another thing: 9 New South is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of Fedhead Ben Bernanke and since eclipses are 'wild cards' of the Universe--able to change conditions in a flash--he might have been waiting patiently for that solar card to be laid on Wall Street's table.

NASA Satellite Falls to Earth This Week Sept 2011

The following space alert definitely falls into SO'W's Look Up category!

Space Weather News for Sept 20, 2011

UARS, a NASA satellite the size of a small bus, will re-enter Earth's atmosphere later this week producing a brilliant fireball somewhere over our planet. Best estimates place the re-entry time during the late hours of Sept 23rd over a still-unknown region of Earth.

Observers of the rapidly-decaying satellite say it is tumbling and flashing, sometimes almost as brightly as Venus. Video images featured on today's edition of show how the doomed satellite looks through a backyard telescope.

Readers who would like to catch a last glimpse of UARS streaking across the night sky should check SpaceWeather's Satellite Tracker for flyby times.

Fall of the Republic (the movie); Obama's Chiron/Pluto

There's a lot to take in in the following video presentation so I'll keep my comments under wraps until I watch Fall of the Republic again. Included is my old argument on this blog that Rs and Ds are on the same team (and that's what spawns "class warfare" here in America--plutocrats v we-the-people--not the expectation that upper-crusters will pay their fair share of US taxes while all the GOP wishes to do is pretend that the weaker among us are strong enough to shoulder the full weight of the financial burden.

You know, everyone who moseys around the US of A uses our nation's roads, airstrips, and other public transport and infrastructure resources and services. And it takes funding from taxes to keep up the equipment!

To me its seems that if the American people were a herd, Republicans would allow--no, assist--millions of us to be picked off by any predator who comes our hapless way. The more population control, the better for the GOP--crash the joint!

Well, as far as President Obama being in with the 'in crowd' of transnational banksters and other corporatists, we discussed way back when that the transiting Pluto/Chiron midpoint (the 'plutocracy, oppression, disenfranchisement, primal violence' pair) is at Midheaven (The Goal; Aspirations) in the Inauguration 2009 Horoscope of Jan 20, 2009 Noon est Capitol Building.

Plutocrats are lounging around our White House, y'all (stinkin' up the place, imho.) And their total take-over has been a long time coming.

January 20, 2009--September 19, 2011

So now? Now it's 2 years 8 months into Mr. Obama's first term and the Pluto/Chiron midpoint these days hangs about the 3AQ+ area of the Tropical Zodiac--conjunct Inauguration 2009 Jupiter, planet of Bankers, Generals, Mentors, Explorers, Gamblers, Professors, Hierophants, and Gurus everywhere. Seems the Oval Office is a very busy place.

Plus, as you know, Mr. Obama is all about mentors with his natal Chiron in Pisces, and mystical Quests and a Grail, too. In fact, the 'knight in shining armour' archetype isn't far from the glowing aura of Barack Obama, and you know that the Piscean Chiron person may act from a sense of self-sacrifice either consciously or unconsciously, right?

Well, there is more to our complex president, Barack Obama, of course, but really--can't his obvious lean (toward greasing the palms of Wall Street crooks and foreign banks over easing Main Street problems and addressing the lack of US jobs--until now when he has no choice) be described just as well by those two astrological factors as much as by anything else?

Barack Obama August 4, 1961 7:24 pm AHST Honolulu, HI: 1st house Chiron 5Pis19 Rx opposes 7th house Pluto 6Vir59 = "a Seeker whose Quest is to embody, express, and struggle on behalf of archetypal energies seeking to force their way into mass awareness." (R. Nolle.)

Mass awareness. Yes. That'd be us.

But if his Quest includes a one world government, aka, a New World Order, we're in big trouble for Mr. Obama's natal Chiron/Pluto opposition makes him one of them, a plutocrat by nature...unless he chooses to fight them instead.

So being currently in the midst of his 'five-fer' Chiron Return (5 'hits' or conjunctions from Chiron to natal Chiron, a spiritualized or spiritized time around age 50 when our weaknesses appeal to us for close attention and healing), President Obama is walking a very numinous path this year and next so I think he may as well have his 'feet held to the fire', as folk say, simultaneously--by the American people who have as their only advocate an imperfect human being acting archetypally as 'our president', a Seeker along The Path...just as we all are, we spirits having physical experiences on planet Earth.

Yes, we-the-people have always been told that The Power is centered in the White House Oval Office (though it isn't) and since the US Congress seems determined that America should no longer have a functioning Congress, our Chirotic, Pisecean President Obama is all we have at the moment to advocate on our behalves while we're busy being devoured by plutocrats lying in wait like the ravenous wolves they truly are.

So is President Obama a knight? Or the fox?

Sign Deficit Super Committee Petition: No Safety Net Cuts!

This 'just in' to my inbox--if you care about our social safety net programs and know someone who depends on them, perhaps you'll add your John Hancock, too:

Dear Friend,

Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security are in danger. But the biggest threat isn't driven by economics, it's driven by politics.

Twelve members of Congress from the House and Senate have been newly empowered to force both chambers of Congress to vote on a deficit reduction bill that can neither be amended nor filibustered.

Unfortunately many members of this new bipartisan, bicameral deficit super committee have Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security squarely in their sights.

In essence, they think it's better to let seniors fall into poverty, or deny needed health care to the poor and elderly, than to raise taxes on people who can comfortably afford to pay more.

I just signed a petition telling the members of the deficit super committee not to cut Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security benefits. I hope you do too.

Horoscope: New Moon 4Lib00 Sept 27, 2011

Set for the White House, Washington DC, here is an image of September 27, 2011's New Moon @ 4:00:16 Libra rising (ASC 4Lib51), with the lunation as part of a Cardinal Grand Cross here perfected by US natal Jupiter 5Can56 at Midheaven (The Goal, or WHY? Point.)

Natal Jupiter @ '6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests" is the WHY? A new cycle of activity (New Moon on ASC) is the WHAT? HOW is Pluto breaking down systems and structures in Capricorn, and the WHERE? is apparently Utopia (Uranus in Aries on DESC.)

The New Moon perfects during an Hour of Mars 5Leo05 in 10th house of Public Status and Career, conjunct US natal North Node which indicates encounters with martian people or events; chart-ruler Venus 15Lib21 in 1st house and just past US natal Saturn 14Lib48 which is the first US natal planet to rise in the New Moon chart.

This indicates issues of legalities, austerity, responsibility, potential loss, and accountability. Accountability issues are seconded by asteroid Hera at MC (keeping or balancing accounts) and financial matters are prominent.

Also prominent are military issues (hospitals, illness, use of force) and mining (Pluto conj IC, 4th house ruled by Saturn, plus, Neptune/Pluto midpoint in 4th h indicates resource plunderers (Robber Barons) and, in particular, uranium mining, contamination, radiation, and disposal concerns.

As you see, Jupiter Rx in Taurus, a money sign, is posited in 8th house of Shared Resources, Big Business, Corporations, Banking, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Legacies, Transformation, Death, and the Occult. The Neptune/Pluto pair has links to the supernatural and the occult as well.

For the sake of brevity, this analysis of the new cycle of activity beginning on Sept 27 will be primarily focused on midpoint pictures, aspects, and other links to the New Moon itself.

Chart-ruler Venus makes only one applying aspect (how things will proceed)--a conjunction with Saturn which happens to be conjoining US Secondary Progressed Mars Rx. Serious meetings are indicated along with mixing business with pleasure, working in isolation, and/or appreciating a need for better organization and structure.

Two applying aspects to the New Moon are telling, one that is separating (waning) indicates a past event or unconscious inclination--here are a few potentials which may come from the New Moon in Libra, sign of Partnerships and Legalities, but which also has war and conflict connotations:

New Moon square Pluto (0A55): new starts externally enforced; independent actions are courageous; transformation of lifestyles; ego is the driving motivation (Sun); emotional attachments intensify; overpowering emotions may outweigh other considerations; transformed domestic environments; powerful motivations bring impressive achievements but recklessness is a caution (Moon.)

New Moon sextile Mars (1A05): current opportunities inspire courageous actions; principles of loyalty and integrity are defended and may benefit career and reputation; competition or aggression (Sun); feelings morph into actions; talent is developed through instincts; business opportunities present themselves (Moon.)

Cardinal Grand Cross: Sun/Moon, Mercury, ASC, MC (US n Jupiter), Pluto, and Uranus

With US n Jupiter at MC and triggering/completing the T-Squares into a Grand Cross pattern, we know that idealism, finances, religion, higher education, war (Jupiter the General), courts, and other 9th house matters that Jupiter rules are particularly of interest in this New Moon horoscope, with business, self-protection, and security intimately involved (Cancer.)

Yet the separating opposition from radical Uranus 2Ari31 Rx may also relate esp with Uranus still affected by the transiting Jupiter/Neptune midpoint, the speculator-wastrel-grand schemes-inflationary pair of planets which conjoined one another upon our US natal Moon--we-the-people--in Aquarius all through 2009 creating an 'involved in speculation/instability' vibe. (Jup/Nep = Uranus: reality v imagination; coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation--Ebertin.)

Please click the chart to enlarge for more details including America's natal planets which are penned around the outside of the chart and highlighted in an aqua color.

Since there's so much dynamic energy with the planetary pattern, let's consider the midpoint pictures formed by the US n Jupiter-completed Grand Cross--any, all, or none may apply:

n Jupiter/tr Pluto = Sun: creating magical effects; successful use of extraordinary mental or physical powers.

n Jupiter/tr Pluto = Moon: a desire to bring about social improvements; influencing the masses/the public through an appeal to the emotions (uh oh--that's now the US government always gets Americans to go to war--jc); a successful use of psychology.

n Jupiter/tr Pluto = ASC: a desire for power; organizing talent; personal advancement; far-sightedness; prudence.

(Interesting that 'prudence' was one of Bush Sr's signature words, and this New Moon shows the difficult Mars/Saturn midpoint sitting upon Poppy's natal ASC = possible health threat; separation; mourning. Also, Saturn 18Lib12 has just conjoined his natal Moon, also not a good portent for health issues, and his n Pluto in Cancer is at MC. Oh, and by the way: NN 17Sag14 in 3rd house of the New Moon chart is pointing toward Dick Cheney's natal Mars and as you know, Cheney's recent book has stirred up controversies over his role in 9/11 and his war crimes.)

n Jupiter/tr Pluto = Uranus: fanatics striving for improvements (Ebertin gives Uranus in Aries as 'Utopians'); quickly exploiting every situation; sudden reforms (will the president's American Jobs Creation bill pass? jc); adjustments to new circumstances.

Sun/Uranus = n Jupiter: successful reformers, inventors, or technicians; a pleasant surprise!

Sun/Uranus = Pluto: radical reformers; a desire to rearrange things; tragic experiences; imprisonment.

Sun/Uranus = MC: restless people with far-reaching plans; reformers, inventors, technicians (again--jc); the impact of sudden events or upheavals.

Moon/Uranus = n Jupiter: aims and objectives on a grand scale; vision; satisfied ambitions; ambitious aspirations.

Moon/Uranus = Pluto: fanaticism; self-willedness; stubbornness; a craving for sensation; building anew upon ruins.

Moon/Uranus = MC: pursuit of ambitious aims; excitement and great energy; determination; ready for action; sudden interference.

Uranus/ASC = n Jupiter: a fortunate rearrangement of the environment; optimism; successful teamwork.

Uranus/ASC = Pluto: a desire to attain success even under the most difficult circumstances.

Also of interest to our New Moon/new cycle topic is the Sabian Symbol for Mercury '3Lib' with trader Mercury in the 12th house of Politics, Secret Deals, Self-Undoing, and Karma:

"The Dawn of a New Day Reveals Everything Changed"...'INNOVATION:

Keynote: The ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values.'

Yes, but it's which values and what kind of 'new foundation' that concern this American.


Natal data, both with Rodden Rating A: George H. W. Bush June 12, 1924 11:45 am edt Milton, MA; Dick Cheney January 30, 1941 7:30 am cst Lincoln, NE.

All midpoint pictures today are from Ebertin's The Combination of Stellar Influences.

'3Lib' and '6Can' are from An Astrological Mandala by Dane Rudhyar.

Pluto Stations Direct 4Cap53 Sept 16, 2011

The Tracker Pauses in His Tracks: Pluto Turns Direct 9.16.11

by Jude Cowell

In Mundane Astrology, Pluto has many layers of meaning. Some potentials are: plutocrats, the government (administration and infrastructure), power and its abuse and misuse, big business and corporatism, the criminal Underworld (ex: Mafia), surveillance and spies, detectives, assassins and saboteurs, fear, secrets and scandals, the mega-wealthy class, taboos, Psychiatry and mind control, propaganda, methods of coping, oil, plutonium, other valuable things under the earth, tunnels and pipes, nuclear energy and weapons, death, destruction, and transformation.

Yet Mr. Hades can be the monster lurking beneath the bed or play The Philanthropist with a conscience (but also an ulterior motive)!

Once absolute power has been attained--and it has, Pluto has no intention of giving it up yet we've seen the beginning of riots, protests, and upheavals from populations across the globe as radical Uranus on the streets squares entrenched Pluto in his ivory tower in an attempt to block (square) the furthering of Pluto's abuse of power against the disenfranchised underclasses (Pluto/Chiron.)

Yes, the Cardinal Grand Cross of 2010 extends into 2011 and beyond and will 'inspire' more societal stand-offs between classes and political factions.

Pluto's Direct Station Sept 16, 2011

In Washington DC on Friday September 16, 2011, Pluto turns Direct at 2:25 pm edt with 25 Sagittarius rising which makes a 4th house (Real Estate) Jupiter (banking) the chart-ruler. (Jupiter's applying trine to Pluto is mentioned below.) Moneybags Jupiter is retrograde @ 9Tau51, not the condition we prefer for a chart-ruler--this points toward continuing foreclosures which are now being put into legal processes again (Rx) by the banking industry (Jupiter Rx trine Pluto, now Direct.)

It also points directly toward China, whose totem is The Dragon (Pluto), opening the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting of the New Champions today--see NPR's China Tells Others to Put Financial House in Order. Our Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is to speak there tomorrow (9.16), the day Pluto turns Direct.

Thing is, Secretary Geithner speaks with the Sun (leadership) conjoining US natal Neptune in Virgo (work; workers; service) so idealism and fantasy are in the air and someone is zooming someone--probably on both sides (US and China.)

So with Pluto now moving forward and stationing during the World Economic Forum, will China act as the world's economic savior as some have suggested? Pluto, er...China, isn't much impressed with that idea but we'll see. To do so would give the Chinese government more leverage and plutonian control which it apparently desires.

In September, Pluto rises with Fixed Star Aquila (The Eagle; bold action) and there are indications of war drums with Pluto's degree '5Cap' = "Indians Rowing a Canoe and Dancing a War Dance"--not what most Americans want since we're overburdened with Bush-Cheney wars as it is, but Pluto doesn't ask permission from anyone for his strong-armed pursuit of global power and domination.

A Cardinal T-Square with Apex Pluto

With a 9th house (Foreign Lands) Venus 2Lib03 opposing Uranus 2Ari57 Rx in 3rd house of Communications, a square from manipulative Pluto creates a Cardinal T-Square and forms a midpoint picture with these possible manifestations, some of which may turn up in the news as events or scandals:

Venus/Uranus = Pluto: potential for notoriety; exhibitionism; high excitability; accusations, attacks, or disruptions in seeking satisfaction; fanaticism when pursuing enjoyment of affection. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Sexy! Yet in Business and Politics, the Venus/Uranus pair itself relates to a treasury showing unexpected rises and falls in valuations, strange or eccentric behavior toward financial assets, and/or ruling bodies unable to cope with sudden increases or lacks of financial resources. (Munkasey.)

Now when karmic Pluto is apex (focus) in a Cardinal T-Square, high-level executives are indicated, and certain bloodlines may hold sway. Secluded in an ivory tower, this isolated Pluto never shares power and ruthlessly overwhelms any opposition to his plans for domination especially when challenged; subversive actions and manipulation are used to force his ambitions upon others.

(On the topic of plutonian, draconian bloodlines and US presidents, of course the satanic Merovingians come first to mind.)

So as Venus and Uranus both square The Dragon, US natal Jupiter--Geithner?--is again opposed by transiting Pluto, a difficult and key time for US finances and for political maneuverings as power struggles stymie efforts. The phrase "called on the carpet" comes to mind for Mr. Geithner's visit to China.

Apex Pluto in a Cardinal T-Square describes explosive endings making way for a new direction but if the 'new direction' is global totalitarianism, America's sovereignty and independence will be become things of the past--we're in process of that breakdown now, aren't we?

Jupiter trine Pluto (4A58) indicates aid from banking and other entities (Jupiter - gurus, preachers, generals, Republicans, etc) toward power goals, yet aid is delayed due to Jupiter's Rx state (until Christmas 2011.)

Venus square Pluto (0A55) shows overreactions to something said or done--things are Very Serious, no jokes allowed. Old issues surface bringing along resentments, suspicions, jealousies, and anger over past actions which perhaps were not aboveboard. (Plus, the Venus/Pluto pair has a connection to bankruptcy.)

Well, there are many other chart factors of importance if you care to set up a chart for Pluto's Direct Station on Friday. I'll close with a list of the midpoint pictures formed at 2:25 pm edt in Washington DC (9.16.11) for your consideration--any, all, or none may apply:

Mars/Pluto = Saturn: leaving no stone unturned in pursuit of a particular task; a desire to forcibly overcome obstacles at all cost; frustrated goals require persistence; lessened personal power.

Mars/Pluto = MC (15Lib49 = US natal Saturn, as above): learning to gain control and use powerful or extreme measures for improving status; unusual capabilities for advancement; facing overwhelming force without power (Pluto oppo US n Jupiter; tr Mars opposing US n Pluto 27Cap33 Rx in USA's 2nd house of Money); intervention of a Higher Power (China saves the global financial system?)

Jupiter/NN = Neptune (an ongoing mdpt picture): indecision or vacillation; inhibitions in partnerships; instability; unreliability; disappointment; getting sober again.

Moon/NN = Neptune: disappointment through others; an undermining of associations or unions.

Moon/Saturn = Mars: a lack of determination; the desire to overcome difficulties; feeling inferior; soul conflicts; separation or illness.

Moon/MC = Mars: total devotion to a task; industriousness; a spirit of endeavor.

And last but not least, our world's two societal planets, Jupiter and Saturn, point to activist Mars as well...

Jupiter/Saturn = Mars: a lack of endurance; enforcing changes of circumstances and life conditions; feeling unrewarded and making a change; not wanting to toe the line; ambition emerges out of discontent.

And since Mars opposes US natal Pluto...

Jupiter/Saturn = n Pluto: dramatic trust of self; fearlessness; major change of situation; tremendous perseverance; attaining aims slowly but surely; immense efforts; restrictions; separations; violent changes.

Mercury/Venus = Sun: compassion; recognition; a sunny disposition.


You may wish to check out a previous post on similar topics: China's natal chart and why Geithner is there with the nation's natal horoscope shown with transits for Secretary Geithner's visit in April 2010. You'll see that a transit now repeats due to the slowness of Pluto's orbit--tr Pluto opposing China's natal Uranus in Cancer, a time of struggles for control within the environment, and great conflicts occurring as power and resources are pitted against established financial and political institutions, such as the United States of America.

Elizabeth Warren announces Senate Run (video); Sun Can-Moon Tau

Video: Harvard's Elizabeth Warren announces her candidacy for US Senate:

Now this sounds like good news to me! But then I always remind myself of the crooks and weasels she'll have to deal with once she's a member the elitist club of the US Senate.

Astrology: Elizabeth Warren's Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus

Elizabeth Warren was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on June 22, 1949 and the Moon was in Taurus for the 24-hour period so her personality is flavored by a practical and nourishing Water-Earth Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus blend.

Sun Can-Moon Tau gives her great powers of perseverance and dedication, a practical idealism (supported elsewhere in the natal chart), a belief in the worth of every individual, and a great capacity to listen to others. Perhaps she paints, too...

"Images for Integration: A family photo album...A painter captures the taste and smell of a landscape...A flourishing family business." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Born on a Summer Solstice, Prof. Warren's Sun at 00Cancer+ makes her a natural on the world stage; Venus-ruled Taurus is one of the money signs with a shadow side of greed, possessiveness, and intolerance. On June 22, 1949, the Sun joined Uranus at 00Can+ which adds progressive Politics (Uranus) to her essence and hero's journey (Sun.)

A Sun/Uranus conjunction gives her a high self-awareness, willfulness, and what some consider an eccentric vibe. Yes, Prof. Warren is shocked when people oppose her or stand in her way yet she closely guards her right to speak her mind freely and without compromise. Social limitations which issue from tradition are not well tolerated by Uranians who know that "times change" and adjustments become necessary.

Career potentials for a Sun/Uranus conjunction person are unlimited, with Politics one of its expression along with Science and Education. Lessons from the past are foundations for continued development and progress is 'the thing'. Add to this her Mercury/Mars conjunction in communicative Gemini, energy which also likes to voice itself freely along with much nervous energy, a sharp mind, original creativity, and a direct frankness.

Yet there is an applying aspect to natal Sun that describes Elizabeth Warren and it's part of a double YOD ('Finger of God' pattern = special task; turning point; crossroads; crisis): Sun sextile Saturn (2Virgo) which forms two midpoint pictures for Saturn and Uranus are also sextile, and you'll note that some potentials relate to her recent political experiences in Washington DC:

Sun/Saturn = Jupiter 00AQ30 Rx: strong sense of morals; ability to remain quiet especially in formal settings; happiness in solitude.

Saturn/Uranus = Jupiter: a turn of destiny; adaptability in every situation; a fortunate release from tension; advice on how to effect change to traditional ways; traditional politics shattered by new, unexpected practices; conservatives v radicals.

(Mdpt pics: Ebertin; Munkasey; any, all, or none may apply.)

Sun sextile Saturn shows concern with limits and boundaries. It indicates modesty in accessing one's self-worth, great depth of understanding, and a driving ambition to succeed. Occupations such as Teaching, Politics, and Law are indicated; work is taken seriously and much competence is evident. This aspect denotes and supports Warren's 'advocating for people with limited means and few oppostunities' inclination.

Saturn sextile Uranus indicates keen comprehension, a deep respect for knowledge, an ability to capitalize on resources (inner and outer), and an instinctive search for truth; progress is necessary for maximum development of success potential.

YODS with Apex Jupiter in Aquarius and the 5 North Eclipse Series

Natal Jupiter conjoins the degree of our US Inaugural Suns on January 20 at noon--can a White House run be in her future? Perhaps not but natal Jupiter's Sabian Symbol is important with her Jupiter the apex planet within two YODs...

'1AQ" = "An Old Adobe Mission"...DURABILITY...

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

negative/unconscious/shadow side: lack of ambition and and blind adherence to superficialities. (Jones, with my 'unconscious/shadow side'.)

Supporting the 'breadth of vision' influence of this degree is Elizabeth Warren's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, 5 North, a very creative series which brings prophetic dreams and visions, hunches and flashes of insight, and gives an unconscious, psychic flavor to her life; her hunches may be acted upon in practical ways. 5N last manifested on May 31, 2003 @ 9Gem19, and conjoined and triggered her Mercury/Mars conjunction.

When Jupiter is apex of a YOD pattern, faith is put in things that are workable--another sign of her practicality. Apex Jupiter in a YOD is a broadcaster who is given opportunities to take part in larger social issues; too much attention may be paid to unessential details. Prof. Warren is subject to twists of fate which provide her with opportunities which may be used benevolently and unselfishly for the greater good of society. A long-held ideology or formerly held belief may have to be abandoned in order to continue in the new direction once the YOD is activated.

Now I don't know if she's already given up former beliefs to do what she does now or if she will do so if victorious in her run for Senate. Hopefully, senatorial service within the system won't change her progressive views overmuch though we know that Capitol Hill tends to favor its cushy status quo conditions and perks.

A caution with Jupiter apex in a YOD pattern is that of indulging in self-aggrandizement (yet this seems to be a requirement of joining the US Senate!)

Born during a Balsamic Sun-Moon phase, even more prophetic talent is indicated; this phase denotes that she tends to come onto a scene and take over responsibilities when another is unable carry on.

There's another midpoint picture which remained in effect for the 24-hour period and relates to glamorizing and to economic issues such as fraud, deception, and inflation because it involves veiling Neptune...

Neptune/NN = Venus (19Can): misconceptions about other people's relationships or associations; vagueness about emotional values; suspicion.

Natal Venus in workaholic Virgo is oriental (last planet to rise before the Sun rises) so her work with finances and things of value is shown.

Neptune/NN itself may expect more than is possible from a community or group of people--in a word, disappointment. It also relates to publicity and one's image projected upon the screen of other people's imaginations (Neptune = media, the masses; NN = contacts with the public)--and to scandals which I hope won't be a part of Warren's senatorial campaign.

From Stars Over Washington, I'm wishing Elizabeth Warren a very good and clear outcome with her senate run! We can definitely use her original thinking and progressive ideas for improving conditions in our struggling America.

Wild Card of the Universe: Solar Eclipse Nov 25, 2011

Eclipse as Wild Card, Financial Uproar on Horizon, & Gerald Celente's Crash Forecast

by Jude Cowell

In general, eclipses in a horoscope (and in the life Astrology describes) function as 'Wild Cards of the Universe' as they're often termed, acting as catalysts that precipitate changes with consequences that they will never be affected or changed by, ever.) Plus, the unexpected quality of astrological Uranus's dynamic energy and its tendency to act early, late, or never upon other planets in a horoscope adds to its mystique as a "Wild" Card, introducing The Unexpected and possibly upsetting process, action, or event.

As you know, Uranus rules lightening, and the spark of genius which God may bestow upon a man or woman. Electricity and Shock naturally The Sky god's provinces as well and its trademarks of Independence, Freedom, Dissent, and Revolt are well known and are obviously a big ole clue to the particular importance of revolutionary Uranus in America's natal horoscope @ 8Gem55.

And we know that the radical Utopians, anarchists, usurpers, and secession promoters in thin disguise, are signified by the sign position of transiting Uranus, currently passing hrough Tropical Aries, a sign ruled by fiery Mars, archetypally the god of war and turmoil. It is from the brilliant Reinhold Ebertin that I take a clue of the true identity of Uranus in Aries, with Aries Point conjunct US natal IC (The Drain; Endings; Home; Real Estate--World Manifestation Point 00Ari00 = AP - tr Uranus, at America's Foundation Point.)

For the spear's point of such riotous enterprises, the position and condition of Mars is implicated, with higher octave, saboteur Pluto motivating activist Mars to commit even more nefarious crimes than he otherwise might (like the FBI setting up would-be terrorists with bombs and money.) And though the Mars figure or figures may be completely unaware of such manipulation, at least for a while--Pluto's Psychology talents fit perfectly with his penchant for Propaganda.

As Chris Hedges has said, We're living in Orwell's Oceana, not Huxley's Brave New World.

Well, if you missed it, here's the Horoscope with details of the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse, titled, a peculiar turn of events which may refer to what's in store from the report due November 23 from the 'Super Congress' ('Super Committee') with its supra-congressional peculiarities, or to other things...wild.

'10,000 Famous Freemasons' has many names you'll recognize

Sometimes here on Stars Over Washington I add links to very interesting tidbits in this blog's sidebar without shouting out their addition in a post.

However, the 10th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/01 has inspired me to post a link to a site which has a digital copy of a 1957 book by William R. Denslow entitled 10,000 Famous Freemasons and telling you about it.

So even if you don't care to peruse the alphabetized list for names of famous politicians, presidents, Supreme Court Justices, Kings, Queens, and other notables, you may wish to check out the book's Foreward written by none other than one of our many Freemason presidents, Harry S. Truman.

Plus, if you dare to click you'll be greeted with an image displaying several signatures (autographs!) of folks such as Benjamin Franklin,
John Hancock, and others whose names you'll recognize--some may surprise you!

But this is dusty old stuff, eh?

As with a District of Columbia studded with tomb-like buildings constructed on principles of Sacred Geometry (thanks to our Great Mathematician!)--the Capitol Building in Washington comes first to mind--this list of 10,000 names is a good resource for those investigating History yet who wish to unearth deeper informational layers rather than accepting the veneer that most historians tend to toss over their narratives. The more superficial tossing makes true understanding of past events, both consequences and causes, difficult if not impossible to determine though many researchers continually try.

Yes, names of past Masons are fairly easy to discover, even for the merely curious. But a list of our modern day crop of them now serving in Washington DC tends to be shrouded in secrecy from the average sleuth, and reporters seldom mention such hidden, overarching affiliations (which a percentage of journalists take oaths to as well.)

Well, given the destructive wind that a hijacked America has been heading into (probably timed by the take-over of the US government by The Federal Reserve Bank, circa 1913), I'd hide my name, too, if I were a member of a secret society that was itself hijacked centuries ago by an Illuminati determined to gain total world control, with America acting as its military branch.

So are you able-bodied and unemployed for long? Guess you're tempted to join the US military, a very successful Employment Program the US government promotes in films, tv shows, in games, schools, and more--wherever the propaganda boot fits, our young people are expected to wear it.

Check out Source Code for a not-so-subtle hint: serve your country even after death! This film (which I did like, btw) manages to tout military service and the fear of terrorism occurring on US soil simultaneously.

Bravo!...I guess...

Concerning One of Those 10,000 Freemasons

So whose bio was I researching when I came upon the book? That of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, hero of the American Revolution, Freemason (he's on the list of 10,000), and bosom buddy of Thomas Jefferson, Freemason and Illuminati agent.

You remember that it was master engineer Kosciuszko who bolstered our forts during the American Revolution and it was his plans that were sold to the British by Benedict Arnold.

On the topic of America's reputed 'turning' from a higher course to a lower one of perpetual war, I sometimes I wonder: did the attacks of 9/11 mark a symbolic switch of America's Great Seal from obverse to the reverse side with its (Illuminati) Eye of Surveillance on top the 13-step pyramid or power?

Related posts include Signposts on the NWO Highway and here's a post detailing the collapse of Lehman Brothers--in 1984--and the list of which organizations sit on each rung of the 13-Step Pyramid of Power.

'13' is a big number in occultism, as you know. Our original 13 colonies, 13 steps of power, the 13th Amendment, Ophiuchus the 13th constellation, etc. And yes, I now sit typing from within the 13th Colony of Georgia. And you know that the number '13' is said to be a signature of the Illuminati and Freemasonry, right?

Meanwhile there may be a ray of illumination to be found in the Sabian Symbol for the '14 Sagittarius' degree because of its word picture:

"The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx" (Dane Rudhyar.)

"Keynote: The enduring power of occult knowledge and of its quasi-divine Custodians, "Seed-men" of a previous cycle of existence.

The belief in an Original Tradition based on the perfect knowledge of the archetypal principles and forms which underlie all manifestations of life on earth (and by extension in the cosmos) is deeply rooted in man's consciousness. The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx are witnesses to such a Tradition, especially for the Western world. The symbol implies that such an archetypal knowledge remains the foundation upon which men's minds can still build solid and valid formulations, as new evolutionary developments are pending."

Essentially, this "points to the greatness of a Soul's past achievements and the value of trying to reevoke this past. What is revealed in THE POWER OF SPIRITUAL ANCESTRY." (all DR, his emphases, from An Astrological Mandala.)

Ancestry? Ancestor and hero worship?

Well, with 'The Sphinx' we know as Thomas Jefferson intimately involved in the founding of this nation and his cosmic studies well known (if not his secret society connections), the centuries-long campaign which the US government has maintained to make certain that Mr. Jefferson remains for posterity a "quasi-divine" "Seed-man" (and a secretive holder of occult--hidden--knowledge such as the Bruton Vault info which he apparently suppressed), it may be easier to understand the degree's Egyptian flavor in light of the Sabian Symbol's babylonish implications.

Plus, the architecture of the Jefferson Memorial has that certain dusty musty Masonic look about it, don't you agree?


Blog Notes: you may wish to check this blog's sidebar for other links to Freemason and presidential info (such as both Roosevelts), the Illuminati, Thomas Jefferson, etc., or type a few words into the Search Bar provided by Google. Of course, then Google will make googley eyes at you from atop the pyramid of their power...

And Blogger for the second day in a row is 'disappearing' parts of my post as I type/save so hopefully all of this effort will publiah with its links and text intact. jc


Update 9.12.11 7:46 pm edt: did you know that George Washington's Inaugural throne (April 30, 1789 Federal Hall on Wall Street, NYC) was decorated with a Rising Sun symbol? Or should I say 'is' decorated? Wonder who sits upon the booger now for its seems the Sun is setting.

Reminds me of the Sabian Symbol for '16 Aries'..."Brownies Dancing in the Setting Sun"...which isn't as bad as it first sounds if we-the-people believe there's a better way than that of the Jackassians of Washington DC:


positive expression: simple good fortune together with unlimited opportunity as the direct fruitage of effort;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: delusions of adequacy with a complete inability to act in real self-interest.
(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones; except for the 'unconscious/shadow side' part--I added that.)

Our frustration is no excuse for inaction! jc
