Celente on US econo-trends 2012 (video) w some Astrology 11.30.11

November 29, 2011: economist Gerald Celente discusses ugly topics such as MF Global, John Corzine, 'missing' money, looted pension funds, and what's coming down the *pike for the US economy in 2012.

Part 1 of 2

"The Goldman-Sachs Gang, the Merrill-Lynch Mob, and the Morgan-Stanley Marauders" get no respect from Mr. Celente, an attitude with which I totally agree. "The whole system is collapsing--the money's not there," he asserts. Hence a government cover-up continues with martial law on its way wherever necessary--as if law abiding, dissenting Americans are the problem instead of the outlaws in Washington, on Wall Street, and in capitals the world over!

Part 2 of 2


The current looted/heisted financial condition of America is not a 'R v D' issue at all but is part of a long process mounted by usurpers of a mafia-esque, global domination persuasion and planned many years ago by people like Albert *Pike.

In Mundane Astrology, I often use asteroid Cupido to represent The Syndicate, The Family, Corporatism. Today Cupido clocks in @ 00Vir25, conjunct a Royal Star of Persia, Regulus (success if revenge is avoided), and parallel transiting Mars 9Vir11 (ugh--George Bush's natal Mars.)

The Jupiter-Neptune pair of speculators, fraudsters, spendthrifts, wastrels, and grand schemers has again met up with tr Uranus, the radical reformer and anarchist, and their midpoint picture is once again in force after a brief respite--as always, any, all, or none may apply to an economic condition and the criminal embezzlers near you:

Jupiter/Neptune = Uranus: imagination v reality; coming down to earth with a bump (or a crash--jc); suddenly recognition of a difficult situation; disruptive events that have no real explanation (see Celente video above! jc); decisions based on odd or unusual theories about the effects of the supernatural; unaccustomed confusion. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Today, as the Moon sails through Aquarius, sign of We The People's natal Moon (July 4, 1776), our day is suffused with the socially concerned, idealistic vibes of Sun Sag-Moon AQ, a combination of energies shared natally by several famous people including: Andrew Carnegie, Caroline Kennedy, John Kennedy Jr, Richard Leakey, Louisa May Alcott, Phillip K. Dick, Woody Allen, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Margaret Mead. Here are two quotes from two of them which may relate to our current topic on many levels:

"The machine threatens all achievement."

-R. M. Rilke

"As a people we have developed a lifestyle that is draining the earth of its priceless and irreplaceable resources without regard for the future of our children and people all around the world."

-Margaret Mead

How sad in 2011, as we face the watershed year of 2012, to know all too well by decades of experience just how correct they both were in their assertions.

As for New World Order instigator Albert *Pike--still revered by some:

(He) "designed a plan for world conquest and wrote of it in a letter to Mazzini dated August 15, 1871. He said three future world wars would prepare the world for the New World Order."

Read more here as we see their illuminized plans for a Third World War moving ahead bwo the Pentagon.

Furthermore, Mazzini's letter includes a description of where we are now:

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the 'agentur' of the 'Illuminati' between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion."

(My caps and italics.)

Just as Osama bin Laden hoped! 'Thanks' Bush-Cheney and Obama for furthering Islamic radicals' plan for America's collapse. Well, I have mentioned here many times the Sabian Symbol for 9/11's Moon (We the People): '28Gemini' = BANKRUPTCY.

Read more on Pike's letter to Mazzini here which includes analysis of both arch conspirators.

So who was playing the role of US president when the Illuminati planets, Uranus and Neptune met up in Great Conjunction three times through 1993 thus beginning the modern cycle of conspiracy? Bill Clinton, of course! Will I ever tire of typing the Sabian Symbol for their conjunction of collusion and control?

Apparently not. Because it describes perfectly current conditions such as riot police actions against the peaceful demonstrators of Occupy Wall Street and all other rights movements around the globe.

Uranus-Neptune '18 Capricorn' = "The Union Jack Flies from a British Warship" which Marc Edmund Jones gives as SUPERVISION, and Dane Ruhyar as POLITICAL POWER.

positive expression: the self's ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches (such as the Mark of the Beast? jc);

negative (unconscious/shadow side--jc): smug or strong-armed paternalism.

Britain controls US politics bwo the Bank of England, a Rothschild endeavor so in my opinion, the British government has much to answer for on Judgment Day for it may be described as America's shadow government (Saturn/Neptune = 'leaders deceive about the exercise of control; a leader capitulates'--Munkasey.)

Not to let the Federal Reserve Bank of New York off the hook but you notice that the UK government is not a member of the European Union--perhaps because it's more special than many people realize.

Well, the timing must not be quite right for total global financial collapse with
stocks rallying today as six central banks move to ease the EU financial crisis so we know that someone is making money, don't we?

Of course, there may be another explanation for why central banks acted now--did a large European bank come close to failing last night?

A la the Bible, maybe it's finally time for Steve Keen's idea of declaring a
debt jubilee
to offset the trillions of dollars the central banks stole from the people--and jubilee into oblivion the House of Rothschild's ill-gained profits!

A Natal Horoscope for Newt Gingrich

Newt Notes

by Jude Cowell

Yes, his poll numbers are up and endorsements pour in for Republican candidate Newt Gingrich with his high-flying Sun Gemini/Moon Sagittarius personality blend. Herman Cain's romantic yet secretive nature and Rick Perry's constant flubbability are aiding Mr. Gingrich with fellow Republicans desperate for a viable horse to bet on in 2012.

Earlier today I published Gingrich's natal horoscope with a few details if you're interested. I'd begun the post a week ago and thanks to our holiday break here in America, only today did I get around to completing it but neglected to move the article into today's queue. Hence this shout-out.

See what you think about this Sun/Moon square Neptune (at a critical 29th degree) guy and leave a comment if you have a chance.

Would you vote for the Newtster?


Plus, here are astro-peeks at Mitt Romney (horoscope shown) and Gov. Rick Perry (chart details only), the candidate who never got the memo that the voting age in America is 18, not 21, and the 2012 elections will be held on November 6, not Nov much flubbability for just one man!

Is John Huntsman a Man with a Plan?

Perhaps you've heard that 2012 candidate John Huntsman is the only Republican hopeful with a detailed plan to end banking's Too Big to Fail dilemma.

(Well, it helped create a massive dilemma for 99% of us. Bankers seem fine as-is.)

Ah yes, I remember those halcyon days not so long ago (June 21, 2011 actually) when John Huntsman announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president. It seemed such a long shot and now? It seems such a long shot. But maybe a cabinet position on someone's White House economic team would be available to him. Or a VP slot. After all, he does have foreign policy experience more than most.

Well, it hasn't seemed pertinent to study Mr. Huntsman's natal chart so far but I did type up a few notes in real time during his announcement which initiated his candidacy in case you wish to track his progress...

Julian Assange accepts major Journalism award (video) w the Jupiter-Saturn cycle

Monday November 28, 2011: Awards, Lies, Pies, and Turkeys

by Jude Cowell

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, as I enjoyed a slice of pumpkin pie with family, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange accepted a major Australian award, the Walkley Award, for "Outstanding Contribution to Journalism.

The Walkley Award is equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize in America, and to this common gooder who'd like America to act more uprightly than the imperial dictatorship our government has become, Mr. Assange deserved a prize for revealing us to ourselves in spite of 24/7 government propaganda. It must be obvious to a majority of Americans circa 2011 that "exporting" our brand of "democracy" is a sham with tragic consequences, not the least of which is the bankrupting of the United States and the dissolution of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, an ongoing project for self-serving oligarchs, plutocrats, and despots who have Global Governance on their reptilian minds.

As you know, in 2011 many uprisings of The People have gone viral across the globe at the opposition phase of the Jupiter/Saturn cycle which began with their conjunction on May 28, 2000. Its Sabian Symbol pertains to the bankster/Wall Street/mortgage frauds that crashed the US and world economies in 2007/08:

Jupiter/Saturn @23 Taurus = "A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Gems."

Well, you've noticed that most of those 'gems' are now in someone else's coffers and not ours as trillions of dollars and mounds of gold were spirited out of the US through corporate bailouts and sent to foreign entities in similar fashion as was done in WWII to fund Hitler's war efforts and to boost the wealth of the House of Rothschild and its agents, many of whom were--and are--Washington DC officials (officials in theory if not in practice--not playing on our team.)

The '23Tau' symbol's association with wealth and thievery--and in America's case, with extreme income inequality--implies that its forward trajectory at opposition 2011 relates directly to the We Are The 99% Movement, or Occupy Wall Street, if you prefer, and to global uprisings of the fed-up.

Taurus is a practical, often materialistic earth sign with greed, possessiveness, and intolerance the shadow aide of this money sign; environmental issues apply as well to Taurus, sign of the Gardener, the Architect, and the Bull--and bullishness--of Wall Street.

We might even take the economic view that today's financial problems and the deleveraging being perpetrated against the populace is described by Saturnian demand being lower than Jupiter's supply. However, Jupiter now retrograde will eventually turn direct and move forward through the 30 degrees of Taurus and into lighter, Airy Gemini (communications) while Saturn's predictable entry into the sign of Big Business--the weighty Mars-Pluto-ruled Scorpio--is an entire post for another day. (Updated 11.28.11 @ 10 pm est.)

For Assange's updated views on the US government's behavior toward him for exposing Washington's lies and illegalities, view his video acceptance speech at Democracy Now! which includes remarks from Glenn Greenwald, or you may wish to read Mr. Greenwald's column at

Plus, there's a Jupiter/Saturn flavor to the natal chart of Julian Assange, if you're interested in his quirky, willful Sun/Uranus personality which supports Technology interests and talents bwo Uranus' co-rulership of futuristic, computer-loving Aquarius. Even the glyph for Aquarius favors a 'www' as in, Worldwide Web.

In Mundane Astrology, Jupiter and Saturn are used to represent the Republican and Democratic parties but that's outside the scope of today's post.

Jupiter Opposite Saturn, the Halfway Mark in Their 20-Year Cycle

Now what of the opposition phase between our two societal planets, Jupiter (expansion; growth; generosity) and Saturn (contraction; restriction; austerity)?

Oppositions between any planets are awareness-relationship aspects of culmination or fulfillment, and the May 2000 conjunction heralded the New Millennium, the Bush-Cheney coup of the presidency, and the attacks of 9/11 which have made thievery, coups/topplings, and bankruptcy much easier for globalists to accomplish along with changing America almost beyond recognition. The US Congress has purposefully added to its own toothlessness by traitorous actions of may kinds, and by negating its constitutionally granted oversight function.

Now in the Jupiter-Saturn cycle, the first ten years (ex: 2000-2010) are intense and describe a sort of winding up that peaks at opposition. The last ten years
(2010-2020) indicate a winding down of this intensity, and to a slowing of the pace and overall direction so visible in the earlier stages.

The current opposition is also a transit of Jupiter opposing US natal Saturn 14Lib48, a time when progress and growth are blocked or restricted; promising situations may tempt us to circumvent rules and regulations but this is ill-advised. Hold on to what you've got is the usual advice for this transit and that's just what we're seeing from the wealthiest members of the 1% as they try to hold on to what they've got without contributing to society--even if it's ill-gotten gains that rightly belong to others.

With the fed-up flavor of the Occupy Movement (and movements elsewhere but this blog is mainly about American vermin and DC politics), we're seeing a Jupiter-Saturn opposition tendency toward exhaustion since the rapidity of expansion has been so quick-paced that it's impossible to sustain--we now have a need to assimilate and reflect upon these financial and societal issues, a need that 2011's uprisings are facilitating on behalf of the collective good.

Given the post-traumatic stress syndrome caused by 9/11 and its handmaiden, Financial Collapse 2008, we now deal at the opposition with the Taurean realms of luxury, comfort, and security as the 99% demand fairness from the greedy 1%.

The Jupiter-Saturn combo of energies may also refer to diplomacy, perseverance, discontent, tenacious pursuit of plans, philosophical thinking, unsettled lives full of many changes, emotional tension, attainment of far-reaching objectives, a 'making it happen' strategy; industry, law professors, clergymen, civil servants, politicians, and government officials of the administration. (Ebertin.)

And Michael Munkasey gives Jupiter-Saturn potentials in Business and Politics as: checks and balances; changes in government, religious, and social orders; repression based on morality instituted by law or religion; too many restrictions on the operation of justice (ex: Wall Street CEOs not held accountable for crimes--jc); a judicial system at its breaking point (yep---jc); leniency and harshness vie for balance within the overall social and economic systems.
Yes, fatigue from war and want are certain to ramp up as calls for improvement in the global economy continue during the next ten years until the Jupiter-Saturn cycle begins again @ 00AQ29 on December 21, 2020, a key year in American and World history. The 2020 Great Conjunction perfects only once--in Air and conjoining the US Inaugural Sun of January 20th, assuming that America still elects presidents by then (it's not for certain.)

So let's stop discussing political turkeys for now and close with the midpoint picture created in 2020 by the planetary synchronicity of the transiting Jupiter-Saturn midpoint which directly affects the US presidency (Sun @ 00AQ+ since FDR's 1937 inauguration when the switch was made); any, all, or none may apply...

Jupiter-Saturn = Sun (the leader): inconstancy; gaining experience; changes of residence; feeling that you can positively influence social change; boasting a lot; increased self-pride and greater ability to demonstrate positive leadership before others; dreaming of the potential for actuality (of a NWO? jc); taking destiny into one's own hands; major changes according to plan, or, if nothing is prepared, becoming gripped by the status quo and having to make the best of things.

Horoscope: Bonus Army 1932 w OWS notes

Bonus Army 1932 Assault w Occupy Wall Street Considerations

by Jude Cowell

Here you see a horoscope for the time (4:45 pm est), date (July 28, 1932), and location (Anacostia, near District of Columbia) that the Bonus Army of our nation's unpaid WWI veterans and their families, who'd marched on Washington to demand that their bonuses be paid, was charged by Major General Douglas MacArthur leading infantry, cavalry, and six battle tanks commanded by Major George S. Patton.

Yes, it's our two main American heroes active at a 1% v 99%-style stand-off in the olden days of 1932, with the military and police forces doing the dirty work of a resentful, crisis-ridden White House administration that went on to lose its next bid for the Oval Office to Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

The violent behavior of the US government toward American citizens who were free to dissent and were feeling betrayed financially after risking their lives in service to our country--and were hungry, as were their wives and children--is all too similar to the police brutality being used these days since the Occupy Wall Street, or 99% Movement, began on September 17, 2011...brutality used on peaceful demonstrators who want We the People's grievances redressed.

How positively unAmerican of the US government, then and now!

Please click to enlarge the horoscope for a few extra details which may not be mentioned here for it's a holiday in the US, out-of-towners arrive this evening, and so I shall only note a few chart factors in the text of this post beyond the basics:

Bonus Army Charged by MacArthur @ 4:45 pm est July 28, 1932 Anacostia, District of Columbia; Hour of the Sun; Moon (the people) and Mars (police; military; males between ages of 25--35 appr) are out-of-bounds and performing unusual feats--Moon OOBs indicates a populace feeling unstable, disregarded, and unfed due to being unpaid though granted the privilege by congressional action for their WWI service.

This horoscope shows Sun and Moon in 3rd quarter phase (crisis in consciousness); Neptune in Virgo--as is US natal Neptune--is in detriment in Virgo since opposite is Pisces, co-ruled by opaque, misty, diffusing, confusing, often deceptive Neptune. The Neptunian tactic of fraud comes to mind, then as well as now; Sun conjoins America's natal North Node 5Leo+ which emphasizes the importance of the president's destiny which he could've handled very differently than by attacking US citizens.

Two primary chart factors I'm focusing on today:

1. a crisis-ridden, turning-point heralding YOD pattern--a sextile (60 degr) between Mercury and Venus 00Can06, a World point of Manifestation, at its base and pointing toward the man in charge, Saturn @1AQ06 Rx. Saturn at apex of a YOD configuration has a karmic (reap what was sown) flavor and is discussed just below.

As you see, Venus began the day at a crisis 29th degr of Gemini and denotes 'relationships, values, evaluations, smaller amounts of money'--Gemini is the sign of duplicity (ex: vets' betrayal by their government and military), and Mercury, planet of messages (their March on Washington and subsequent encampments delivered it) and young people (the families accompanying the vets, and the press that reported events in some sort of fashion to suit the plutocrats in charge.)

Of interest may be the midpoint picture formed by the three planets involved in the July 28, 1932 YOD pattern--on its own, the 'Mercury/Venus' combo indicates 'a business sector at odds with society, and/or, speeches that emphasize economic facts' (Munkasey.)

Saturn Rx shows delay, indecision, inhibitions, loss, restriction, control, oppression, authority, management...but also 'rewards for long term efforts'...which eventually occurred when Congress overrode FDR's veto and voted them their monies in 1936 long after one-term Herbert Hoover had moved on down the line, his once-stellar reputation sullied...

Mercury/Venus = Saturn: thoroughness; a serious attitude; deep meditation. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Apex Saturn in a YOD formation shows one (or those) who should not use force unwisely, yet as we know, this Saturnian caution was not heeded by Hoover, hence the fated or karmic undertone in the chart. "This is a testing YOD," says Saturn the lesson-bringer, and timing is all important to outcomes since fated consequences are described. Frustration (another of Saturn's favorite words) and a sense of failure may accompany this YOD if its energies are not properly (Saturn, says!) expressed.

If you've seen the Occupy Wall Street natal horoscope for September 17, 2011, sunrise, you'll see Saturn 17Lib01 which conjoins the Bonus Army's Midheaven, The Goal Point of any chart. Speaking truth--Saturn--to Authority--also Saturn. And of course, all these Saturnian issues are presenting themselves underneath the auspices of our recent US Saturn Return to 14Lib48 when our nation's responsibility-accountability chickens come home to roost.

This apex Saturn demands attention to social responsibilities, focused and purposeful activity, and heralds a new path that has serious implications (Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, Bil Tierney.) Yet a tendency toward self-preservation seems to have been the primary concern of the US government.

Another link to the OWS natal chart is that its Sun/Moon midpoint at sunrise falls at 21Can47 which conjoins 1932's Pluto 22Can05; other links may be noted if you'll check it out for yourself! This Pluto is lining up to oppose US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx, a time when great powers are locked in massive battles for control, a background influence that undergirds the whole shebang.

There's also a titanic generational clash recurring in 2011:

Uranus/Pluto square from Aries to Cancer, whereas now the revolutionary pair of Uranus/Pluto square each other from Aries to Capricorn with the square's difficult, frustrating energies expressing in 2011 with similar themes of revolt, jarring societal changes, upheavals, and riots; the Cancer/Capricorn axis is emphasized, then and now--through the polarity of security/nurturance v career/authority.)

2. the military assault on the Bonus Army occurred during a 6 North Saros Series Solar Eclipse which had manifested on March 7, 1932 @ 16Pis33...6N themes are 'relationship to father figures; authority issues; needing to take responsibility or control; commitments through another person's not being able to carry on.' (Brady.) '17Pisces'/'17Vir' are considered critical (crisis) degrees and relate directly to the Uranus/Pluto cycle since they met there in mid-Virgo in the mid-1960s = civil rights--workers' rights--racial inequality--anti-war protests; plus, 2011's income inequality issues, tuition increases, etc.

So in 1932, President Hoover and his military advisers (and international bosses) attempted to take control and had some temporary success, we might say. But it was their own sense of responsibility and their commitment to paying our war veterans that they wanted to avoid.

Sounds kind of like the attitudes of Republicans in Congress circa 2011 and how they behave over such things as extending unemployment benefits, extendign corporate welfare, and a desire to institute other populace-controlling methods of austerity (Saturn!) These are some of the plutocratic strategies of globalism-loving politicians determined to keep down the oppressed and disenfranchised in America, a group whose ranks are constantly increasing.

In closing, the grand schemes pair of Jupiter and Neptune (inflation; speculation; market bubbles--the planetary imprint of the Obama presidency by Great Conjunction/s all through 2009 conj US natal Moon) are in different signs--Neptune 6Vir32 conjoins President Obama's natal Pluto, a time of eroding power--but they are snugged around Bonus Army Mercury 00Vir31 which forms a midpoint picture you may wish to consider. See of any of these potentials ring true given what we know so far--any, all, or none may apply:

Jupiter/Neptune = Mercury: speaking for the deprived; misleading or misdirecting others; skills with deceptive practices; putting on an act; talking a lot; a raising of hopes.

In the 1932 horoscope in the 6th house of Police and Military Service is Mars, planet of war, conflict, and protest, just beyond his Return to natal position in America's birth chart (July 4, 1776; Mars '22Gemini' square Neptune 22Vir25.) And, if you use this ASC 25Sag37 as the tail of a high-flying Kite pattern, acts as the spearhead of MacArthur's and Hoover's efforts to quell dissent in this Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.

Plus, as you see, Mars 25Gem21 conjoins asteroid Eros ('the piercing') (and OWS's natal MC at sunrise!) which describes the charge of Mars--US 500 infantry, 500 cavalry, 800 policemen, and 6 tanks, as noted) toward the Bonus Army marchers who, in their gullible, patriotic love for America and pride in their military service to the US government, cheered--cheered!--because they assumed that General MacArthur was leading troops to HONOR them, our veterans of WWI.

But they soon discovered their mistake...


Further reading: Herbert Hoover; Douglas MacArthur; George Patton. It's been said that MacArthur ignored Hoover's orders to stop the assault but MacArthur charged the marchers because he allegedly thought the Bonus Army was part of a Communist plot to take over America. But I just don't believe that he assaulted innocent Americans because of his own conspiracy theory, do you? That there were communist sympathizers or double agents within the US government then, and perhaps now, seems much more credible, sad to say. jc

Bradley Manning court date: Sun Sag/Moon Virgo

At last, whistleblower Bradley Manning, who dared taunt the US war machine, has been given a court date of December 16 (2011) when the Sun is in Sagittarius, Moon in critical Virgo for the 24-hour period.

This Fire-Earth combination of energies may be described as a 'bull dozer' and indicates tremendous drive toward a desired direction. Old J. P. Morgan was born with a Fire-Earth combo (Aries-Virgo.) The combo tends to have a strong, rational bias with enormous certitude about beliefs. Seems this may describe both sides of the issue--the Manning-WikiLeaks side v the US military/government, so invested in their seeming infallibility. Does might make right? Not to me it doesn't!

Yet the Sun Sag-Moon Virgo blend in particular can shift between certitude and deep doubt. Its sense of drama may shrink if placed under the spotlight for too long, and nervous tension becomes a problem. Aims are focused on the greater good, not just on behalf of the individual, and presenting the Big Picture is a talent with Sag's macro-view and Virgo's attention to detail. This reminds me of the leaked tape of the US helicopter showing troops' behavior that Private Manning leaked to WikiLeaks and which began this difficult odyssey for him.

With Sun Sag-Moon Virgo, there is a tendency to be shocked by disloyalty and again, this seems to me to describe both sides especially with the combo's dedication to ideals. Clear arguments will be made on December 16 and calm integrity will be demonstrated but narrow-mindedness, moralism, and obsession will also be shown on that day.

One of the blend's 'Images for Integration' is: The Ten Commandments but there is little space within the theater of war for following such good advice--Thou Shalt Not Kill being the stand-out admonition though Not Bearing False Witness must be on the court's menu, of course.

My own feeling is that Bradley Manning carved out a little space for morality when his actions revealed the true face of US imperialism and his trial will be a mad scramble to put the Pentagon's idealistic mask back in place for the American people--even though it's way too late. Pvt. Manning is in the raptor's embrace, God help him, for the raptor is blind to all but its own interests, and sacrificing One Lone Soldier is a no-brainer solution when global domination goals are at stake.

The Sun Sag-Moon Virgo combo is shared natally by philosopher and historian Thomas Carlyle and here's one of his famous quotes which I hope won't define Bradley Manning's court appearance on December 16:

"Nothing is more terrible than activity without insight."

Newt Gingrich = Sun and Moon SQ Neptune

Newt Gingrich: Sun Gemini/Moon Sagittarius = a 'know-it-all'?

by Jude Cowell

The astrodatabank page of 2012 Republican candidate Newt Gingrich gives some basic details on the life of this noted Republican whose Big Year came in 1994 when the GOP took over the House gavel and Newt was named Speaker of the House. Newt was proud to be the first Republican Speaker in 40 years but controversy soon followed the professor of history.

Perhaps you caught a recent Morning Edition feature on NPR To Imagine a Gingrich Presidency, Look To The '90s if you wish to imagine such a thing. (Audio and text. Plus, a big honkin' "Contract With America" photo from 1994 of the political thespians.)

Now when it comes to the natal horoscope of Newt Gingrich, there are at least three conflicting birth times to be found online. For more on that, his astrodatabank wiki page, above, gives you the scoop.

Newt Gingrich born June 17, 1943 in Harrisburg, PA

But which natal chart to use for this post? So far his potential birth times are: 11:45 pm EWT, "middle of the night", and 3:00 am EWT. Let's consider the most often used horoscope for 11:45 pm.

11:45 pm ewt gives an ASC of *19AQ19 which has intellectual and contrarian correspondences. This makes Saturn in Gemini the chart-ruler, with quirky yet brilliant Uranus in Gemini as co-ruler which supports his Mercury/Uranus conjunction's intellectual prowess and its radical ideas (see more on this conjunction, below.) The pair snugs near IC (Foundation; Basis) so its scintillating energies may be said to under gird him and form the basis of bis career success in the opposite house, the 10th house of Career.

10th H contains the Moon (emotional nature; mama; publicity; fluctuations) @ 25Sag11 which shows his waxing-waning with the public yet with a reigning need for public status and attention. Jupiter rules 10th H through Sagittarius @ MC and Jupiter 27Can20 is weakened by its position in Cadent 6th H (abundance through work and service) yet Jupiter applies to an opportunistic sextile (60 degr) to idealistic Neptune 29Vir17 in 7th H of Partnerships (1A58), and a conjunction with power-mongering Pluto 5Leo41, also in 6th H (8A21.)

Bank-loving Jupiter/Pluto is a signature of wealthy people who are of a move-n-shaker persuasion, always ready to start large scale projects.

Broad thinking Jupiter/Neptune has, as you know, the Grand Spirit-Grand Scheme, Speculation-Inflation-Wastrel vibes of an over-promiser. Gingrich's detail-oriented ability is supplied by thinking Mercury in its own sign of Gemini, sign of communication and oration; Mercury is in sextile aspect with Pluto as well which deepens his intellect and provides him with analytical and concentrating abilities which are also supported by energetic Mars sextile hardworking Saturn.

As you see in the horoscope, Gingrich was born when Uranus and Pluto were in sextile
(60 degr) aspect indicating scientific interests, a deep search for knowledge, and sudden inspirations.

Newt, a Man of Ideas

His Mercury/Uranus conjunction indicates an inventive mind; advanced Science topics may be of interest including atomic energy; occult leanings or Astrology may be indicated; sudden flashes of intuition inspire solutions; independent thinking is evident, self expression is dramatic, traditional ideas are never automatically accepted, and he's constantly seeking the new or unusual.

The Essence of Newt: closest applying aspect to natal Sun

Now the only applying aspect to natal Sun is a square from Neptune indicating early confusion with his identity (teen parents separated just after his birth, stepfather adopted him; grew up in a military household.) This is an aspect of a self-deceiver par excellence (US president? Really?) with an unconscious desire for importance which is tamped down a little by a strong Saturn, here in Gemini, which gives him a logical mind. Plus, Saturn and Mars are in sextile (endurance, fortitude, practicality), and Mercury's sextile to Pluto gives keen mental perceptions, powerful self-expression, and another potential for occultism.

Moon SQ Neptune shows some deception or illusion on the part of Mom who may have fibbed a little about Dad (Sun/Neptune SQ.) In adulthood, these energies show up in his multiple marriages and a reputation for romantic affairs and for leaving ill wives for someone new.

A 4th H Sun rebounds its energy by polarity into the public 10th H but also indicates that Newt shines brightest when he's chillin' at home. Yet serious Saturn in 4th H tells a tale of heavy responsibilities in the family sphere, and a struggle to achieve domestic security. Real estate, contracting, building, and/or farming are indicated.

Well, you know there are many people who say that Newt Gingrich Will Never Be President and considering his natal chart, I shall agree.

For one thing, the closest direct link to America's natal Moon (We the People; 25--28 AQ--most victorious candidates have had a strong connection to our national Moon) in his natal chart is an opposition from Chiron 25Leo40; Chiron in Leo shows his crisis on earth relates to **ego problems which were meant to be conquered at his Uranus opposition ('midlife crisis') but I suspect ego continues to rule Mr. Gingrich because he's still desperate for public attention for himself, a trait supported by his 10th H Jupiter-ruled Moon.

Well, his campaign--more PR than presidential?--does collect funds for his coffers and sells quite a lot of books. Plus, his SN conjunct ASC does not indicate popularity! (Click to enlarge chart for more on SN/ASC, bottom left.)

Now here are Gingrich's natal midpoint pictures--any, all, or none may apply and none depend upon a correct birth time except for Saturn/ASC:

Sun/Moon = Neptune (T-SQ): delusions about what can be done or how much hard work it will take to achieve it; dreaming of options open available to redirect plans; misunderstandings, illusions, deceptions, mistakes; undermining of relationships.

Mars/Jupiter = Uranus: ambition; independence; love of freedom.

Mars/NN = Saturn: teamwork rendered more difficult as time goes on; little need for feedback from others.

Pluto/NN = Venus: connections/meetings with powerful women; contacts with influential bankers; accumulating powerful friendships for wealth or power potentials; love tragedies.

Saturn/ASC = Mars: self-willed; obstinate; turbulent circumstances.

Such is Newt, The Politician.


*You'll note that his Aquarian ASC conjoins the natal ASC of President Barack Obama but Newt's chart rulers--Saturn and Uranus--are both in Gemini and at the Foundation of his chart and psyche, if 11:45 pm is correct.

Note: 'know it all' comes from his Sun Gem/Moon Sag personality blend (Harvey.) Plus, the Dec 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11 eclipses Gingrich's natal Saturn--a spur to his ambition? Or a depressing time when hidden problems are revealed?

Debt-free America Jan 8, 1835 v Debts Galore Nov 21, 2011

Under the anti-central bank policy of President Andrew Jackson, America paid off the national debt and was considered debt-free in January 1835.

Some sources use 'January 1' and some 'January 8' 1835 as the one day our nation was free of debt; however, some loans were outstanding but could have been paid if called for. Other sources say that America's debt freedom period lasted longer than just one day--perhaps for about a year. Central banks orchestrated the Panic of 1837 in retaliation for America's refusal to play their usury interest rate game so naturally Jackson's opponents blamed him--and fooled some of the people into blaming him--for the dire financial conditions in the US caused by the 1837 crash.

This was Big Banking's usual underhanded tactics, as we've come to know them all too well since 2008, if not before.

Given tonight's whimpering deadline for the Super Committee's deficit homework to be turned in with spending cuts and revenue identified, most people suspect that the debt dog already wolfed it down.

Astrology: January 1835 v November 2011

A few interesting time links exist between January 8, 1835 and the Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 such as 1835's Jupiter 2Gem12 Rx, opposed by the 'Super Committee eclipse'. As you know, Jupiter now travels in retrograde condition in early Taurus, a practical earth sign of Money and Intolerance. The outcome of the Super Committee's work was bound to be complicated if not sabotaged by a Rx Jupiter--was the committee set up to fail as many people believe?

Jupiter's Direct Station on December 25, 2011 has been cited here as the very earliest date that money issues might proceed more favorably though Jupiter's passing its shadow degree (where Mr. Moneybags turned Rx on August 30, 2011 @ 10Tau21) is more likely yet 10Tau21 won't be reached by Jupiter until the evening of March 17, 2012, St. Patrick's Day.

Now in Mundane Astrology Jupiter also relates to Politics and to the Grand Old Party in particular and obviously the 2012 campaign will be in full swing by March 2012 if the varmints of Washington haven't crashed our nation into smithereens by then. Seems as though some are working hard at it!

The Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (PE) in which January 8, 1835 and our debt-free condition fell: the 17 South which last manifested in 1997; next occurrence is in 2015. Its flavor consists of good news and success in relationships and group projects. (Brady.)

On a side note, there are quite a few illustrious people listed in my notes who share 17S as their PE, born in various years, of course: Princess Diana, Ayn Rand, Adolf Hitler, Heath Ledger, Rachel Carson, Tim Roth, Barbara Bush, and Newt Gingrich. Plus, Iran (April 1, 1979 3:00 pm IRDT Tehran.)

A couple more factors about the January 8, 1835 horoscope:

1. testy Mars, always very touchy in Cancer, is @ 9Can13 and Rx, the precise degree of the karma-infused July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 (America's "birthday 2011 eclipse") which brought us the August 2011 Debt-Default Political Theater on Capitol Hill from whence the 'Super' Committee was spawned for political can-kicking purposes. As you know, astrological Mars can be an irritable, hot-headed trigger when he desires to be for the god of war is often frustrated when in Moon-ruled Cancer, sign of America's Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury Rx (July 4, 1776.)

2. there's a dynamic T-Square configuration which creates a word picture:

Mercury/Mars = Pluto *11Ari: a sharp analyst; suffering heavy attacks or assaults. (Ebertin.)

1835's Pluto conjoined the natal Venus of President Jackson so he was in the midst of a Pluto to natal Venus transit, a time when greater power and influence are sought, personal relationships may enhance one's status, power struggled ensue, and bankruptcy may be a consideration.

Turns out, in 1835 Andrew Jackson avoided massive debt of the sort that leads to bankruptcy for our nation but look what Washington politicians have been up to the last several years (such as wars fought on credit cards, Bush tax cuts for millionaires, unfunded mandates, etc) from which the US is already, some say, bankrupt. Embezzling and heisting from the US Treasury has much to do with our nation's weakened financial condition, too, imho.

Well, after President Andrew Jackson paid the last installment on our national debt which he proclaimed on January 8, 1835, his goal to keep the central banking system from taking over our finances (and hence, the governance) of the United States was satisfied for a little while.

However, as is said to be the case with US presidents who mess with the massive profits that central banks make from loaning large sums to governments, an assassination attempt was made on the life of President Jackson January 30, 1835, the first-ever attempt on a US president's life which fulfills a potential of the 'suffering heavy attacks or assaults' midpoint picture mentioned above.

But mind-of-his-own President Jackson was definitely not the last.

How I wish the guns pointed at Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy had misfired as well, don't you?


Another eclipse of the lunar variety manifests before the end of 2011 which eclipses US natal Mars in Gemini so it relates in part to US troops returning home from Middle East deployment by the end of December, we're told. View the horoscope of the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11 set for Washington DC, if you dare.

*'11Aries' = "The President of the Country"...IDEALIZATION.

Lambast of EU and Italian debt crisis (Nigel Farage video)

Leader of the UKIP, Nigel Farage, has become my favorite fellow to watch in Europe!


Previous post w horoscope: EU Flag Unfurls 1989 with July 28, 2011 transits added.

For further EU debt crisis info try Europe's hit squad, the Frankfurt Group, which is, of course, the current incarnation of the Rothschild Banking House in Germany.


"So the Frankfurt Group is, in effect, a merger between the EU hierarchy and German financial power: a kind of Brussels on the Rhine."

What a chilling, undemocratic concept.

Sending Good Luck Wishes to Nigel Farage and the UK Independent Party though I find your pro-'free' trade stance puzzling.

Keiser Report: Bankers' Big Lie and MF Global (video)

Here's Max Keiser and guests discussing financial topics such as John Corzine's MF Global scandal of major proportions and the Big Lie that 'bankers are not responsible for Financial Crash 2008'...puh! How gullible do they think we are?

Well, the Federal Reserve central banking (extortion-laundering-manipulating) system of the US (tied at the navel with Britain's: turns out Alexander Hamilton bested Thomas Jefferson after all with George Washington's collusion, imho; check out the staged *Surrender of Cornwallis at a moment in time chosen by leading Freemason Washington, the General. The hour was elected, as it's termed in Astrology, which resembles the Sacred Geometry of the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Illuminati, and other secret societies that have often joined forces, parted, and reconnected through the centuries while vying for ever-extending control.

For as founding father James Madison tells us:

"History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance."

And their "violent means" includes police actions against peaceful Occupiers.

So if I had to name one entity behind the machinations designed to collapse civilization while pretending that an Ideal Society--a "Utopia", a 'back to The Garden of Eden' vision is achievable simply by way of man's reasoning ability (which is God-provided, btw), I would say from my various reading that the House of Rothschild takes almost every cake in this regard.

Is global domination only a Jewish conspiracy? Other of my reading asserts that originally, the Rothschild ('Red Shield', but actually the Bauers) family were not Jews or of the Hebraic race but were of a different breed altogether, as Daryl Bradford Smith details.

Yes, it seems to benefit the global Rothschild Banking Syndicate (central banking cartel) to keep the 'Jewish conspiracy to control the world through money' myth going, not because there is no such conspiracy at all but because it diverts public attention from the top culprits while casting aspersions upon the Hebrew race which thus continues certain related myths and ruses of History. (No, I'm not denying the Holocaust--attendant myths, I should say and archetypes/stereotypes of old such as the Money Lender oppressing others and enriching himself by way of usury interest rates--like money changers polluting The Temple. It's corruption and rot fit to topple the world financial system 2 centuries later.)

Now this is the point in the narrative which diverged for the reigning Rothschild of that moment (Amschel Mayer) when he realized that much much more money is made by extending loans to Governments and Monarchs than to puny little individuals. Click the above link for a better explanation than you're getting from me here--my Internet connection is still squirrelly so I'm trying to type like the wind which has a typo-inducing effect.)

Now it's 2011, and we see where money lenders--their agents and all who worship gold--have lead global societies: to civilization's potential collapse. Even the sad scandal at the University of Pennsylvania may be seen as part of the Great Ruse for it adds to the **undermining of America's educational system. I hope those who will act upon its prosecution and resulting fall-out will tread gingerly for the sake of the State of Pennsylvania and for the United States of America for this puts a serious limp in our step similar to how codified Religion has been wounded by pedophile priest scandals--or I should say, by church men's perverted crimes against children and the scandals caused therefrom.


*Surrender of Cornwallis horoscope is shown with brief details; Barack Obama's Inauguration 2009 planetary positions are entered around the chart for your consideration.

**Think how undermining to the US government many presidential scandals have been: Bill Clinton caught on tape deposing himself into impeachment, George Bush circumventing while intimidating the US Congress to go along with his illegal war determination thereby undermining Congress as well. And don't get me started on December 2000 and the corrupt, farcical SCOTUS decision for Bush.

Right there, we have rot injected into all three branches of our government: the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial.

Super Congress to the Rescue? Or Are Their Capes at the Cleaners'?

Now with current impasses, stalemates, and snits of miffdom playing out at the Capitol Hill Theater for public consumption, we're meant to say, The US government doesn't function at all anymore, let's toss it out. The rest of the sentence would then be--unbeknownst to many--let's beg the neofascists to impose a military dictatorship on the American people.

Yeah, that'll solve all our problems fer shure. Puh! It's all a big ruse to facilitate a complete take-over of this country from the ripples of the false-flag ops of 9/11/01. 9/11's void-of-course (unstoppable events set in motion) Moon (we-the-people) @ '28Gem' = "A Man Declared Bankrupt" but we may have to replace "man" with "nation" if these radical Utopian anarchists have their illuminized way for much longer.

No one can fight demons unless said demons and monsters are honestly identified first for well-aimed punches are necessary. But name change or no, what are the chances? How long can our time-and-money-wasting shadow boxing continue? And who's pulling the marionette strings of the Supercommittee whose Rs and Ds can't even step into the same room together?

Some say the 'Deficit' 'Super' Committee will admit defeat by Monday though John Kyl seemed to push any chance of resolution over a cliff on today's Meet the Press (video of Kyl-Kerry segment with David Gregory) with John Kerry providing some small measure of Democratic balast.

Up-in-polls candidate Newt Gingrich's cold hearted remarks about Occupiers (many of whom are--or are the offspring of--people Newt hopes will vote for him in 2012--oops!) are included along with Kyl's expressed support of the Newtian take-a-bath attitude. Note that Rs seldom if ever discuss publicly the real issues the Occupiers raise.

Now here's some info on the GOP's Toomey plan which sounds more like a 'Doom-y plan' to me, a discouragement which may be part of their intended goal.


Do you appreciate the 99% Movement, aka, the Occupiers? I do, because for one thing, victory for Machiavellian politics is always temporary and they don't stand a chance against honest discussion of America's financial lacks and social ills which are long overdue for redressing and rebalancing.

Here's a video featuring economist Michael Hudson which I first posted here in December 2010 under the title, Shrinking the US economy IS the point:

OWS, Uranus, and some Astro-Highlights Dec 2011

OWS, Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, Uranus & Jupiter Direct, & a Capricorn New Moon

by Jude Cowell

As today's Occupy Wall Street Day of Action unfolds in NYC and across the globe I'm studying a couple of horoscopes in particular. So many charts to read, so little blogging time!

As you know, events are moving very fast in the real world lately though the illusion, fraud, deception, and speculation of the Jupiter/Neptune pair continue to affect matters as Neptune's bubbly nature merges with Jupiter's tendency to inflate. The positive side of this planetary influence is Jupiter/Neptune's sense of The Grand Spirit which I believe inspires the Occupy Movement--excepting the violence of agents provocateurs, and the down-and-outers who are attracted to Occupy encampments but who may not always conform to OWS standards of good behavior--or are not able to due to their overwhelmingly bad social conditions and habits.

As you've seen since yesterday, even 84-year-old women such as Dorli Rainey are pepper sprayed as if in punishment for freely expressing their views in America circa 2011, not such a Land of the Free anymore but definitely marking a return to being a Home of the Brave.

For as previously stated on this blog, all the strong-arming brutality is occurring under the Barack Obama administration--but notice he's not been in the country or even on the continent for days though he's due back in Washington this Saturday (11.19.11.)

....Astrologically, the strong-arming brutality may be found beneath our noses in black and white in the Uranus Direct Station horoscope--ex: the triggering of the degree of a not-to-be-spurned Venus at IC...

'18Cap' = "The Union Jack"...SUPERVISION...positive expression: the self's ever widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches (total surveillance saturation and the total heisting of our resources by wealthy gold-hoarding crooks--jc);

negative (unconscious/shadow side): smug or strong-armed paternalism.
(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.)

No, America isn't broken (or broke!), nor is the American Spirit. But thieves, gangsters, and political thugs are in the house and must be held up to examination, ridicule, and potentially, they must be held for trial and prosecution.

President Obama "Missed" His Chance to Play Wall Street Sheriff

No laundry list here of our disappointments over President Obama--you know the list anyway. (His natal Mars--energy-action-motivation-conflict--is veiled by US natal Neptune 22Vir25--so you're surprised he's extended and expanded WAR while promising otherwise?) And my suspicion is that he never meant to hold anyone on Wall Street accountable and rewards were forthcoming through corporate bail-outs and other means.

Yes, it is understandable that as he took office and in the days since, President Obama couldn't and can't bite the hand that fed him and led him into the Oval Office, plus, it's a mighty cushy job and all. However, a small astro-peep-eye! here: the dynamic energies of the Pluto/Chiron midpoint that crush--sit atop--Inauguration 2009 MC is telling of the US gov's Aspirations and Goals in Jan 2009 when the presidential oath-taking had to be done twice, as you know, with Inauguration 2009 Mercury (oaths; vows) Rx and combust the Sun @ '1AQ' describing the repeated--Rx--event. The oath-administering gaffe by Chief 'Justice' John Roberts (GOP) set the tone for their "Make Obama Fail" campaign ongoing--as if his first oath at noon wasn't official or binding on some weird ideological level where most of today's Republicans exist in their heads.

On my TV now is excellent coverage of the Occupy Movement by Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman detailing the events of OWS, including an interview with former Police Chief Norm Stamper who was on duty during 1999's Battle in Seattle (a label the media saddled the stand-off between patriots v riot police at the WTO Conference (which opened the New Millennium with its 'free' trade nonsense and other draconisms that have resulted in massive losses of US jobs) was rejected by protest.

So ordering pepper spray to be used on peaceful protesters was wrong, Stamper now says. Wrong then, wrong now! In 2011, a difference is that if The System feels threatened enough, police departments and their associates will act more heinously for they are more organized, trained, and ready for martial law enforcement than the first big push back in Seattle 1999.

Anyway, the two charts I'm studying are the Uranus Direct Station horoscope (shown below) of December 10, 2011 (just hours prior to the December 10 Lunar Eclipse @18Gem11), and the Capricorn New Moon chart of December 24, 2011 (@2Cap34; not shown.)

At the Dec 24 New Moon, Uranus 00Ari44 will be moving direct, still triggering its Direct Station degree, but not its minute (00Ari39 v 00:44) which shows how far the planet of revolt, protest, and upheaval has traveled since its Station Direct of Dec 10...not much, and the temperamentally sensitive Aries Point and US n IC are still ruffled--easy to do wherever feisty Mars rules.

It is my belief that the state and condition of Uranus, America's 'totem' planet of Freedom, Independence, Revolution, and exceptionalism is vastly important in both December horoscopes yet you only have to turn on the news, check news feeds, or watch videos to see that Uranian catabolic action is drenching everything it touches. Using the 'Sibly' version of the US natal chart, shows rebellious Uranus crossing and re-crossing our natal IC 00Ari53 (Foundation; Homeland; Endings) which well describes the uprising spirit of The People arriving in the US--since June 2010 and continuing--following the spirit's inflamed beginnings across the Middle East--Tunisia and Egypt being the stand-out locations for now because that regional story is not completely written by any means.

(For non-corporate news try Thom Hartmann.)

It seems America has found her Voice of Dissent as have our compadres in other lands, and what we see when watching coverage/videos of police in riot gear beating and arresting Americans exercising their Right to Free Speech is We the People pushing back--at last!--against a long-planned 'New World Order' of Bossy McBosses.

As we've witnessed The People's push back in the Middle East since February 2011 (Arab Spring), perhaps many in the US couldn't believe their eyes or grok what they were seeing, but it's become difficult to ignore the encroachments, batons, pepper sprays, and jail cells of a Globalist Agenda determined to establish an imperial one-world-government whose true intent is hidden behind a 'free' trade mask, among other obfuscations and ruses which our politicians are well versed in. They take prep classes, you know. Very organized are they but they can be tripped up!

Crisis Time: Jupiter/Neptune, Uranus, and US natal Midheaven

Dissolving Neptune 28AQ24 remains within orb of US natal Moon (The People) with its rootless-homeless-foreclosure-fraud-flood-storm vibes and as such, our n Moon can replace Neptune's spot in the following equation based on the YOD planetary pattern (Finger of God; crisis; crossroads; turning point; special task) formed by the sextile between the froth/inflation pair Jupiter and Neptune here 'pointing toward' US natal MC 00Lib53, where the sextile is supplied an outlet for dynamic expression on the World Stage...yet here, the energy expresses behind-the-scenes in the political 12th H:

Jupiter/Neptune = US n MC: speculators; visionaries; fortune hunters; wastrels; squanderers; harm or damage through thoughtlessness (or fraud, I would add--jc); philanthropists (a positive expression is a few of the wealthy volunteering to pay their taxes. Or is theirs a dreamy and empty Jupiter/Neptune proposal?)

For weeks now in transits, we've had the midpoint picture of Jupiter/Neptune = Uranus: imagination v reality; coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation. (All midpoint pics from R. Ebertin; any, all, or none may apply.)

If we replace Jupiter with US natal Moon we have: Moon/Jupiter = n MC: socially minded or religious people; confidence; popularity.

Below is the Uranus Direct Station horoscope on which are penned a few notes that will not be mentioned so please click to enlarge and check them out, if you wish.

A Point of Change? Uranus Direct Station @ 00Ari39 in 6th house of Work, Health, Service (Police & Military); December 10, 2011 1:06:19 pm est White House, United States of America; Hour of activist Mars 13Vir09 in 11th house of Groups/Associations & Hopes/Wishes; Mars squares Sun/Moon (opposed and nearing eclipse degree of 18Gem11) and the Nodal Axis (click the Dec 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse chart link for more info on this problematic T-Square.)

Moon with South Node of the Moon

Nodal degree, a karmic or fated point, has Moon 14Gem19 conjoining the South Node end of the axis with its Saturnian, separative tone. Moon conj SN shows bad timing and difficult circumstances which are karmic (reap-what's-sown) in nature. We as a people should have been in the streets over these disenfranchising issues years ago! Perhaps President Obama is correct but on a different level than he meant: we have been a little bit lazy and have gotten a little soft--in the Social Protest department.

Meanwhile, at the other end of the Nodal axis is the Sun 17Sag52 (leader) in 3rd house of Communication and I suspect that Orator-in-Chief Obama may deliver a prime time address to the nation concerning the Occupy Movement at some point before December 2011 ends. Sun/NN links indicate major events occurring, seeking public contacts, and/or the growth and expansion of power.

This expansion of power is borne out by Venus (valuations; money; attraction principle; relationships) @ '18Cap', the degree of 1993's Uranus/Neptune conjunction/s marking the New World Order realm. Their last Great Conjunction occurred during the Age of Enlightenment/Age of Reason in mid-Sagittarius. Here as you see, vengeful-when-scorned Venus is at the Foundation of our Uranian Matters (Uranus to US IC) with Utopians (Uranus in Aries = Utopians, says Ebertin) stirring up the most basic issues within American society (our 4th H.)

And the Uranian concept of Equality is one of them.

ASCENDANT 14Lib19 at 2:04:19 am est

US natal Saturn 14Lib48 rises as does transit Saturn 26:36 in 1st house, a condition you'd usually rather not see in any horoscope--Saturn in 1st H shows delay, inhibition, restriction, and contraction in Horary Astrology with 'loss' also a potential. Basically, status quo Saturn and progressive Uranus are now inconjunct one another, a time in society when priorities are difficult to establish, self-deception abounds, and the adoption of new methods will tend to be resented as people try desperately to hold onto old concepts (like corrupted, rotten to the core Capitalism?)

Now in America, we tend to count our Saturn exalted in Libra as signifying Congress (lawmakers) and the Legal System (SCOTUS, Department of Justice, regional courts and judges, etc.) Jupiter 00Tau47 Rx opposing Saturn suggests that markets are unstable, plus the (long-planned and manufactured--"EU was set up to fail"--or set up in too great a haste) crisis conditions within European Union finances are on tap with Germany perhaps acting as the main significator in a financial situation which may very well affect US banks and our economy.

(Jupiter's Direct Station occurs the day after the Dec 24 New Moo on Christmas Day 2011 @00Tau22. Will this change of Mr. Moneybags' direction be too late to boost retailers' quotas for 2011? Note: their quotas are always trumped up--I worked in the retail fashion industry in my 20s and I can tell you that retailing CEOs cry wolf annually for it helps them cut corners for the sake of the bottom line and shareholders, of course--in pursuit of The Almighty Dollar, as we used to say.)

Oh Venus, Make My Wish Come True?

Chart-ruler Venus is detached--out-of-bounds (OOBs)--so who knows what the NYSE will be worth in December 2011, plus, it's a difficult season anyway during the Jupiter/Saturn opposition as expansion/growth vies with restriction/contraction--ex: the Gang of 12, aka, the 'Super' Congress or Committee will have spewed out its recommendations before Uranus turns direct--or will it? Little public lip service has been paid to the concept of addressing imbalances during their secret negotiations other than Republicans presenting a theatrical 'balanced budget' amendment in the House this week--and in July 2011, too.)

Ho Ho Ho: Our Greater Benefic, Protective Jupiter

Once abundant Jupiter turns direct on Dec 25, 2011 in money sign Taurus (the Bull of Wall Street), perhaps funds and policies that benefit The People will be freed to do some good in our society. An alternate potential: the 1% will pay themselves bigger bonuses and dividends than previously planned--just because they can and because many of them are bitterly pouting because we dared complain over our usury-rate indebtedness to foreign entities, and over financially oppressive conditions imposed by a self-selected group of elite plutocrats, a group which includes the military industrial regime/complex and global investors.

Moon/Venus and Mars/Neptune

Also at Aries Point is Moon/Venus = Uranus: quick actions are dictated by feelings. However, the inconjunct between Moon and Venus shows that actions need careful calibration to be most effective, or effective at all.

This picture focuses the square-peg-round-hole energies of the Moon/Venus *inconjunct (the applying aspect to chart-ruler Venus) on rebellious, radical Uranus. To me this denotes that no matter how the 'Super' Congress ham-fistedness turns out, major financial and social (Venus) adjustments (inconj) will be forced upon the population (Moon) if the Gang of 12's central banking bosses surmise that they can get away with it.

However, the Occupy Movement and the amount of attention being paid to it may have made that elitist assumption a bit less of a done-deal though The Man's riot tanks and swat teams are ready to rumble, unless I miss my guess.

Additionally, the stressful Moon inconj Venus aspect contains a 'grit teeth and bear it' flavor which makes clearly discussions of our problems quite difficult. But maybe not as much as before since the Moon is in communicative Gemini, ruled by the planet of young people, Mercury! But uh-oh: the deceptive, often confused or misdirected Mars/Neptune energies are in play which echoes America's natal Mars/Neptune square...

Mars/Neptune = Mercury: receptive or sensitive minds; many plans without a chance of realization; nervous weakness from drug use or misuse of energy.

This very public Geminian Moon wants to relate and communicate while relational Venus in private wants primarily to control (Capricorn) the relationship with the public (Moon)--and our public finances. With the IC involved bwo Venus, Real Estate valuations are on the menu, too--and Venus rules the 8th H of Big Business, Credit, Debt, Contracts, Transformation, and the Occult. Yes, control of public perception over monetary conditions and other social ills is an imperative for the US government--this is and has always been the case. (US natal Jupiter '6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests"...this tendency was easier to hide in 1776!)

Hopefully, Washington won't follow the 'interrupt Internet service' plan of communication control, or worse: Uranus to US n IC = a disrupted or hacked power grid?

When The People Push Back: 1999 and 2011

Here are a few Astrology notes I posted concerning the media-labeled Battle in Seattle, if you're interested. There are two planetary trios of concentrated energy in the chart/s for that day (Nov 30, 1999, Seattle, Washington, using sunrise) which suggest protests, use of force/abuse of power, and a police state/oligarchic agenda:

1. Pluto/Chiron (the Plutocracy-Oppression team) = Sun 7Sag59/ASC, opposing US natal Uranus (revolt; anarchy--I suggest that WTOers, Bilderbergers, illuminized administration officials, globalist bankers, and their agents were anarchists against US sovereignty first.) The WTO Protests in Seattle will be 12 years ago as of Nov 30, 2011, m'peops! President Clinton(Sun) was acting in accord with Pluto/Chiron's instructions or, under the sway of plutocrat advisers (of which he is now one.) See 1999 in this 1990--1999 Timeline which includes some EU shenanigans, as you'll see.

2. Uranus/Neptune = Mars (3AQ21 at sunrise--'3AQ+' is Jupiter's position in the Inauguration 2009 horoscope, as I tiresomely remind you all the time)...this is a picture suggesting instability; misdirected energy; lameness or paralysis.


Blog Note: some text was just lost and though there are more factors I'd like to mention on these Aries Point/OWS topics for you, ATT&T is having trouble keeping me connected to the Internet this week. I've fought it all day but am finally wumped out with their 'misdirected energy' so if you've emailed me or commented on one of my blogs this week, please be advised that my replies, comments, and/or posts are necessarily on the spotty side at the moment, thanks to big gorilla ATT&T. Typos there be in this post and they must be corrected later. jc

Horoscopes: the Solar--Lunar Eclipses of Nov-Dec 2011

'Wild Cards' of the Universe: November/December 2011 Eclipses

by Jude Cowell

In answer to a regular reader's request, here are images of the November Solar and December Lunar Eclipses of 2011 on the same page. You may wish to click underneath each image to read my original posts containing chart details; click charts to enlarge and hopefully you may read a few additional notes that may not be mentioned in post texts.

First, the November Solar Eclipse with its "peculiar turn of events" vibe:

Chart details: Nov 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 2Sag37 with America's problematic Mars/Neptune square (Gemini to Virgo--both ruled by Mercury--with US natal Mercury Rx in Cancer: confused or misdirected motivations; inspired actions; deception; men using drugs; massive military) on full display as the eclipse perfects. This chart shows US natal Neptune rising, Mars, planet of war-conflict-protests, at Midheaven (The Goal; Public Status.)

Neptune (loss; deception; fraud) in Virgo, sign of Work, Employment, Service (incl police and military, immigrant agricultural workers, etc) shows unemployment issues on the eclipse horizon to be dealt with (or not, if you're GOP and don't mind crashing America to force an ideological point.)

This places our returning troops and vets (who need jobs and medical care!!) on the world stage (MC.) A bill to hire vets was 'supported' by Republicans last week so we'll see what difference such legislation makes for those who risked their lives on behalf of our nation. It also denotes the Occupy Movement (Mars!), demonstrations, and strikes remaining in the news though my hope is that sit-ins will make a big comeback.

The safer our protests and marches, the stronger the Occupy message will be (and the happier American moms like me will be!)

US Natal Mars Weakened and Self-Deceived by Neptune's Wand

Natal Mars at MC, the most visible point in any chart, indicates that how the US government treats or mistreats our returning troops (and how dot gov has already treated veterans including loss or the burning of body parts) will be a topic on the World Stage into *2012 along with Occupiers and how US cities' mayors, and other government and police officials treat them.

Dual Gemini Tells the News December 2011

Then humankind completes 2011 with a revealing Lunar Eclipse in communicative Gemini, ruled by speedy Mercury, planet of young people, early schooling, pupils, oration, writers-journalists-talking heads, bloggers, travelers, those who serve, the senses, thinking processes, plans, transport, trade, commerce, and other mercurial matters. Here's the Lunar Eclipse horoscope:

Astro-details for this horoscope are here in a column spotlighting an 8th house Mars in Virgo squaring the December Lunar Eclipse, as you see.

Mars Annoys The Collective

A neglected tidbit in the post I will add here: Mars square the Nodal Axis (The Public; Publicity; Future Direction; a Joining Point of Encounter) shows conditions where the action and impulses of Mars (generally, males between ages 25-35, give or take a year or two) are at-odds with current social values. Standards are in conflict (may highlight 'conflict of interest' issues) with society; aggression (Mars) may be inappropriately expressed in the wrong place or at the wrong time.

When Mars squares NN from Virgo, sign of purification and discrimination, the dynamic martian energy can irritate, annoy, and frustrate others for Mars can't or won't act in harmony with the environment, or with colleagues. This aspect may indicate environmental issues as well especially with the Nodal axis connection to the sensitive Moon (here, we the people) which can soak up whatever is in the environment like a sea sponge and may link to contagions of some sort.

Plus, the Lunar Eclipse conjoins US natal Mars (see my scribbles outside the chart.)

Next up in cosmic events and SO'W columns to describe them (As Above, So Below!) is the Winter Solstice 2011 Horoscope which I've begun preparing and intend to publish before many more days flit by...


More reading: USA's First Overthrow: Hawaii where a suit-wearing President Obama has flown for the weekend, to attend APEC Summit 2011 and where yet another US-job-killing trade agreement is listed at the top of our Globalist President's agenda.

You know I like how Max Igan talks about Trust Law and how The People of a nation are the law. Politicians and government officials--the public's employees--simply use police and military forces to uphold manmade statutes and regulations--which are not law.

We The People Are The Law.


*After the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse, a 14 South Saros Series eclipse will manifest on May 20, 2012 @ a difficult spot: 00Gem21, conjunct fixed star Alcyone, one of the Weeping Sisters.

Will they weep because a similar dynamic occurs in 2012 as during the year of the last manifestation of the 14S in 1994, the year of the Republican take-over of Congress and the 'perceived' popularity of Newt Gingrich?


Well, whoever is up in the political polls then, we know that major reforms will continue across America and the rest of the world. And may they be for the benefit of The People.

Jon Stewart 'hearts' Rick Perry brain freeze! (video) as a Listening Parrot Forgets to Talk

Jon Stewart!

Rick Not-Ready-For-Primetime Perry doin' a Texas 2-Step 'cos 3 just won't come to this 'Parrot Listening Then Talking' fella.

What I mean by citing the Sabian Symbol (word picture for a degree of the Zodiac) below is that Perry's diverting, substandard 'debate' performance confirms to me a suspicion that Gov. Perry's stated objectives are primarily only talking points fed to him by political strategists--points that he must memorize, write on his hand or on paper, or read from a teleprompter--whatever he's counseled and instructed to say by his handlers.

Wonder if anyone has checked the deja-vu Texas governor's back under his suit jacket a la the debatin' George W. Bush? Was it Karl Rove feeding Dubya his answers? Will we ever definitively know?

All My Exes...

Meanwhile, it's 2011 and Rove's parrot bungled his lines in what passes for a political debate in the US.

Now you don't really believe a buffoon such as Perry can be calling any high level shots, do you? He's a shill who pulls the plug on inmates and signs away Texas's assets to the highest bidders. As governor, Perry executes human beings who may or may not be guilty of their alleged crimes. Even with forward strides in DNA identification, in Texas and much of America, who can tell?

Well, if Rick Perry has lost any sleep over his duties and forgetting his lines as a result, may I recommend melatonin for more REM phase sleep. Cutting down on caffeine consumption might help, too.

But there's another thing.

America's political class by and large is in great need. It is in need of being scoured out of all crooks and betrayers of American sovereignty. This includes all those who tout the US government as Not Functioning, or who go on and on about how government is 'too big', too overbearing, etc (thanks, Bush-Cheney regime--you're the Terror Twins who took down the Twin Towers--Gemini = trade, commerce, and other words, civilization), or how government is 'failing', etc etc, need to be pushed out the door.

In fact, I'd be in favor of a brief amnesty for political crooks if it would encourage the little rats and weasels to scurry for their lairs.

(I knew it was YOU, Bacon.)

Well, as far as Campaign 2012 goes, I hope Jeb won't show up to bat for the Rs who are even worse than the Ds. Some political party name-changin' ought to go on up in here, m'peops.


Political parties should call themselves what they actually stand for, factions, warts, and all. And be expected to live up to their names. If not, we know that secret purposes are on top of their to-do lists, not finding viable solutions on behalf of the America people. So far, Perry seems to be the only one of them who can't list up to three things they'd change yet they are what needs changing if they don't believe in America anymore!

For you know it's way too late in the day for mask-wearing to continue to be allowed by The People. 'Public servants' and officials who take Oaths to serve, protect, and defend this country and its citizens but who also take what they consider to be higher oaths are no longer wanted in service to The People. They have abused the public trust and as such are in breach of contract with the American people.

This circumstance has gone on for decades so it's not as if they haven't proven themselves to be brigands, gangsters, and thieves long before now.

Rick Perry Memory Gaffe Described by Nov 10 Full Moon's Sun Symbol

As you know, in Political Astrology, a branch of Mundane Astrology, the Sun represents the leader or the president which Mr. Perry kinda dreams of being, he says, and the Sabian Symbol (word picture) of the Sun's degree during November 10, 2011's Full Moon @ '19Tau' (Sun '19Sco') is a telling tableau that I believe relates to candidate Perry and his painful brain freeze segment during the recent Republican debate (11.11.11.)

'19 Scorpio' = "A Parrot Listening and Then Talking" = CONVENTIONALITY.

Positive expression: exceptional skill in bringing the whole tenor of transient circumstances to the service of a personal aspiration ("Oops!" rp and jc);

negative (unconscious/shadow side): idle mimicry and self-gratifying pretense.

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

Now if I had to guess (and most commentators and political pundits seem to agree), his most recent gaffe seems to be Farewell to Perry 2012 (see The Perilous Perry Pattern.) This is a view based on the symbol's meaning in relation to Perry's obvious lack of personal connection to his 'own' list of the US gov departments he'd abolish like a White House monarch with the Magic Wand of Imagined Mandate--to be brandished over our lives without any forethought for consequences or blowback. It's the austere right-wing way.

And so the Sun's degree and symbol at the Nov 10, 2011 Full Moon (Sun/Moon phase of fulfillment-culmination-awareness) naturally opposes the Moon's degree making the solar degree the Illumination Point where deeper awareness of unconscious material may be found.

Jon Stewart certainly found comedy treasure in the moment!

(Of course, all degrees have Illumination Points opposite them which is a good way to delve into that blueprint of your unconscious, your natal horoscope--perhaps finding first causes--by 'flipping' all the zodiacal positions in the natal chart and reading the Sabian Symbol (or other system of symbols) for each planet's and cusp's Illumination Point degree. Exs: '1Ari' = '1Lib', '10Leo' = '10AQ" are IPoints. Voila! Your shadow self peeks out with a mercurial wink.)

The Full Moon/degree synchronicity here indicates that the Perry campaign impetus has gone as far (out) as it can go, at least for now. Mars in Leo may have favored Perry but now the more serious, studious sign of Virgo with impetus planet Mars, does not. His quick comeback and handling of his mess-up was pretty good but will not be enough unless all other candidates blaze up and flare out.

My point is, Gov. Perry's hollow performance, with ideological details near-memorized yet void of any true conviction--is linked to the mimicking parrot archetype and reminds me of a friend's parrot years ago, a bird that sometimes messed up on his rehearsed sayings, sometimes on purpose, as it turned out. He was good at pithiness though.

Scary Perry?

Becoming dizzy with the circus lights/look-at-me-world aspects of a situation does not work on TV for anyone who wants to gain or retain a reputation for cool poise and composure. Cool he is not, and Perry seems to me to be the sort of person who tends to laugh inappropriately, such as those who snicker during funerals. And with the GOP now presiding over what they hope will be America's memorial service (R.I.P.), perhaps giddy laughter and murmured justifications such as, Oops at the prospect of lousy leadership are about all the American people care to muster at the moment.

In between our LOLs, that is--at this masterful display of what does work on TV. So view Jon Stewart enjoying his comedic opportunities while feeding his family on The Daily Show above, if you haven't already! Laughter really is one of the best medicines for our ills and the more we ridicule the powerful, the better we'll feel and the less puffed up they will be.

But let's keep the tar simmering on the national hob and our feathery ducks plucked in case we get a chance to use them.

Crazy As It Seems

So who can GOP voters turn to now? Well, they say that popularity polls are on the upswing for Newt!


Our purposefully inefficient, quarreling Congress has inspired a credt rating agency in China to issue (during a TV interview--not good) the US government a debit downgrade warning.

Now you'd think the opinion of Washington's main creditor would carry some weight and get Capitol Hill's nattering noggins bent together and turning out economic consensus amongst them in spite of their tiresome ideological differences.

To do otherwise, and suffer the indignity and financial results of a downgrade compliments of the Chinese government, shows who wants America to fail and collapse which is by its very nature treasonous endeavor committed by zealots with bigger fish to fry than upholding US sovereignty.
