We Forfeit Our Privacy for Alleged "Security"
by Jude Cowell
Okay, I suppose it seemed to some readers that I protested too much during my 8 years of writing this blog concerning America's natal Mercury-Pluto opposition denoted in part by the Eye in the Pyramid's floating Capstone symbolizing the US government's overreaching spying tendencies which were allegedly justified by the terrorist attacks on 9/11/01.
With massive surveillance of US citizens codified by George Bush's signing of the USA Patriot Act on October 26, 2001 (video below, though Clinton and others had managed to erode the Constitution and Bill of Rights prior to 2001), the NSA and other spying agencies have had their naughtiness leaked to the press this week as you certainly cannot have missed.
As Rachel Maddow pointed out on on her broadcast last evening, let's not forget that John Poindexter was appointed by Dubya to head the TIA--Total Information Awareness unit of Homeland Security--Poindexter of Iran-Contra fame and prison sentence. Review its Big Brother logo if you wish and marvel at neocon audacity--the Eye of Surveillance casting its snooping rays upon a globe with the motto "Knowledge Is Power"! The 'TIA' label and logo were cancelled when the public freaked out over its nasty implications but obviously the program's surveillance practices have only increased as technology improved its abilities.
A quick peek at a horoscope of October 26, 2001 (White House--"This morning--" said Bush at the Act's signing) shows that at 10:54 am edt in Washington DC, Pluto @13Sag36 rises with its obsession for control and manipulation, and still in conjunction with US natal Ascendant as the planet of power, assassination, and the Invisible Cape was on September 11, 2001. As you know, transiting Saturn Rx (also a karmic planet of control and restriction) was @14Gem11 opposing Pluto and sitting atop US natal Descendant. A cruel, brutal, karmic combination is Saturn-Pluto.
Warring star of violence, Antares, is conjoined by Pluto the Spy, and Jupiter @15Can36, conjoins the Pentagon's natal Ascendant. Curious is the Sabian Symbol of Pluto's degree: '14Sag' = "The Pyramid and the Sphinx" with its Keyword: CERTIFICATION. My supposition at the time was (and is) that the so-called USA Patriot Act was considered by global government types as a certification of their total surveillance plan necessary for continuing to implement totalitarian control of America and the entire globe.
Illumination Point @29Virgo: "A Man Gaining Secret Knowledge from a Paper He Is Reading" (emails, etc!!)..."DISCOVERY. "A symbol of the world's conservatism...The fixity of idea by which human beings preserve their culture is also a protection for all hidden wisdom and unsuspected ways of knowing, since the deeper awareness is merely a broader reference or a further application of stabilities which constitute a universe at large." Positive expression: "imagination brought to the full of its powers through conscious effort"; Negative/shadow side: "loss of common sense in pure supposition." (The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.)
'Wild Cards of the Universe': Eclipses Uncover Secrets
Now I could type much today concerning these topics but my schedule won't allow so yet I must include another Sabian Symbol which this week's leaks (predicted by the Solar Eclipse of November 13, 2012 @22Scorpio--an influence on Election Day 2012--as noted then conjoining America's 12th cusp of Politics, Secret Enemies, Large Institutions, Karma, and Self-Undoing--Scorpio = secrets and spies) lift up for our consideration as they appear in every news media.
Adding the Illumination Point opposite this degree is even more illuminating, but first see this on PRISM software, if you haven't or check out The Nation's Greg Mitchell on the Prism program; some italics and bold are employed to focus upon our topic:
'29Pisces' = "A Prism"..."VALIDATION...The reliability of normal processes and the consistency of true intelligence are the foundation of a common knowledge which man has been expanding through the centuries, and his continuance of the control he has gained over his environment is a promise of much more wonderful achievement ahead." Positive expression: exceptional accomplishment through judgment of unusual accuracy; Negative (Shadow Side--jc): fatuous pride of intellect.
Note: remember the US government's PROMIS software scandal of the early 1990s? Writer Danny Casolaro was murdered to keep his in-progress book on The Octopus (global crime and banking syndicate) from being published along with his knowledge of PROMIS--all his notes mysteriously disappeared from the Virginia hotel room the weekend his voice was silenced. Anyway, PROMIS was sold with 'backdoors' in place and we now hear of 'backdoors' to Internet servers. If Apple "never heard of" Prism, perhaps the program was called by another name.
Does it seem curious that first President and Master Mason George Washington's natal Venus position is 29Pisces? Or that PROMIS software may have been purchased by David Koresh, killed in the horrendous Clinton-Reno Siege at Waco?
Well, bless my Mercury-Pluto! Here's something I posted in 2011 concerning America's surveillance obsession, Mercury-Pluto: US Patriot Act 10th anniversary (Eye on the US dollar bill shown), and here's a view of the natal chart of the Pentagon with a few astro-notes included.
Plus, there's a related post Hylan, Bernanke, and the Fed to consider, if you may, for NYC Mayor John F. Hylan often spoke of "tentacles", "cats' paws", and "invisible government". Visit Hylan's Wiki page here which contains an excerpt of his most famous speech on such tentacled topics.
And since Stars Over Washington contains almost 4,000 entries (since 2005!) you may wish to scroll to the Search Bar of this blog and enter something like 'Eclipses' for a list of previous posts on leaks and the uncovering of secrets if you're interested in more than the Solar and Lunar Eclipses of November and December 2011 (both horoscopes shown).
Please note that tomorrow's New Moon (June 8, 2013 @18Gem 11:56 am edt) stimulates the Lunar Eclipse of December 2011 at the same degree. We might fairly say that We the People and all our communications (Gemini) are in process of being 'eclipsed' by an overreaching Surveillance State intent on forcing global government.
And they all worked so hard to scam us into giving up our right to privacy!
