How Republicans Plan to Steal your Vote (w/ Guest Tom Perez)



A segment with DNC Chairman Tom Perez from the October 15, 2018 broadcast of The Thom Hartmann Show for your consideration.

Stars Over Washington Turns 13!

Tomorrow October 16, 2018, Stars Over Washington reaches its 13th anniversary! Beginning this blog using Astrology as a lens to investigate Politics and politicians on October 16, 2005, my frustration level with the Bush-Cheney regime and the rest of the Vulcan liars determined to scam the American people into war/s may not have decreased but it seemed a pretty good way to deal with my emotions at the time and blogging forward into 2018.

Now here's a quick comparison of the 'personality' of SO'W at its 2005 inception and how it fares for the upcoming year into 2019 using its founding blend of Sun Libra-Moon Aries (Air-Fire), then on to tomorrow's blend of Sun Libra-Moon Capricorn (Air-Earth):

Sun Libra-Moon Aries is a lively, outspoken combination of a spunky crusader with aspirations for social harmony and justice. This blend is the natal blend of luminaries such as Coltrane, Fermi, Verdi, Pavarotti, and poet e.e. cummings whose sentiment I shared then (and now), "A politician is an arse upon which everyone has sat except a man." Maintaining a low opinion of most politicians as I do, having such a quote connected to SO'W was and is okay by me. And if you read the description of SO'W under its title, the infestation of corrupt politicians and their enablers has only increased under Donald Trump so more ridicule is needed, not less.

2018 Sun Libra-Moon Capricorn (conjunct Pluto!): a believer in fair play, law and order, and ethical systems (know how we can get one?), this is a purposeful, pragmatic blend with a social conscience and a sense of duty. (Please note that my personal sense of duty is for the sake of my country which is why for years I have written and published this 'freebie' blog.)

One luminary born under the auspices of this blend is Black Panther co-founder Bobby Seale and I close this celebratory post with his prescient quote which, in my opinion, must now be applied to all Americans as we face the 2018 Midterm Elections, said to be a referendum on the policies and anti-democratic 'leadership' of Donald Trump. According to Astrology, there is a distinct possibility of a Blue Wave which must be a Blue Tsunami in order to succeed against GOP cheaters:

"We must start coming forth with our energies...our intellects, and our abilities to see what is right and what must be done, so the suffering will stop, and the phrase 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' begins to make some human sense."

Will Trump Fire Jeff Sessions After the 2018 Midterms?

In a previous SO'W post concerning the natal Jupiter of AG Jeff Sessions we discussed Beauregard's planets and in other previous posts the topic has been the November 6th 2018 Midterm Elections which, talking heads seem to agree, may time the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by a Donald Trump desperately trying to stop the Mueller investigation.

Taking a quick peek at the horoscopes of Jeff Sessions (December 24, 1946 'noon' Selma, AL) and the 2018 Midterms, suggestive planetary links between the charts are shown. One degree area of interest includes Sessions' Capricorn planets: Sun @2Cap20 (at noon), Mars @5Cap31, and Moon possibly @15Capricorn for as you know, transit Pluto in Capricorn has in recent years intensified that degree area with Mr. Underworld's powerful transformative energies. However, an area of concern in 2018 is the position of restrictive Saturn on November 6, 2018 @5Cap24 which conjoins the natal Mars of Jeff Sessions. This is an energy-zapping, lowering transit during which relationships, particularly those with other males, may be limited in some way--or broken off completely.

Another hint is that on Election Day 2018, transit Sun @14Scorpio squares the natal Pluto of AG Sessions (which conjoins his natal Saturn in Leo). Sun square Pluto denotes potentials for direct confrontations and/or the betrayal of confidences. And loss-leader Neptune @13Pis47 Rx at the 2018 Midterms (planet of scandals!) forms a T-Square with the natal Mercury-Uranus opposition of Jeff Sessions which suggests nerve troubles (Ebertin). Well, I'd be nervous too if I had to deal personally with Donald Trump and his 12th house Mars and Pluto! Not that the prospective firing of Jeff Sessions will be done in-person, mind you, but if Jeff Sessions is fired at any point it will probably be second-hand in a tweet or on TV.

Now it's true that none of this planetary action may be sufficient to describe Mr. Trump firing Mr. Sessions around or after the 2018 Midterms, but if Congress assures Mr. Trump that they will confirm a new Attorney General once the Midterms are off the political calendar, what more justification will the vulnerable Donald Trump need?

Horoscope: Saudi Arabia 1902 w Oct 2, 2018 planets

Oct 11, 2018: For those who may be interested, The Guardian has published a Timeline concerning Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance on October 2, 2018 going into the Saudi embassy in Istanbul, Turkey, "after lunch." Here is the country's January 15, 1902 horoscope (one of three or more) for Saudi Arabia with October 2, 2018 planets highlighted in green surrounding the chart and speculatively timed for 2:03 pm EEDT with karmic Saturn @3Cap05 rising; chart data from The World Book of Horoscopes, N. Campion; chart #288:

Apologies! Blogger has found issues with code and the image will not re-upload. You'll find the horoscope at my all-purpose astrology blog Jude Cowell Astrology.

Update Oct 12, 2018: it has been reported on MSNBC that a video time stamp shows Mr. Khashoggi entering the Saudi embassy at 1:14 pm which gives 22Sag19 rising ('23Sag' = "Immigrants Entering a New Country") and 14Lib43 at Midheaven with Mercury and Sun snugged around it. Restrictive Saturn, planet of authority, is first planet to rise. It's an Hour of Jupiter and broadcasting Jupiter is chart-ruler but is unaspected as is the Ascendant.


Please enlarge the image to read chart details. In the center of the horoscope are listed Saudi Arabia's Syzygy Moon (last lunation, a New Moon prior to the overthrow of Riyadh, the founding event this chart is based upon--with 2018 Pluto conjunct the Syzygy Moon and denoting a critical time of development and issues of separation), and its Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') in the 12 North Saros Series; 12 North's theme is on the chart. Last 12N: on SA's birthday January 15, 2010 @25Capricorn conjunct natal Sun and Jupiter; next 12N: January 26, 2028 @6AQ conjunct Saudi Arabia's natal Icarus (5AQ47). Note that 5-6 Aquarius happens to be the position of America's natal South Node (1776).
Although I had not intended to compare Mr. Trump's natal planets with those of Saudi Arabia (pals though they may be--he thinks), a few of his planets are listed around the chart as well but are not highlighted. Of note is Saudi Arabia ('SA')'s Pluto @17Gem02 Rx conjoining Trump's natal Uranus, his 'guiding planet' of chaos and disruption, an explosive, revolutionary combination of planetary energies. And SA's natal Vertex ('VX') @00Vir26 conjoins the occult 8th cusp, royal Regulus (success if revenge is avoided), and the natal Ascendant of Donald Trump with his aggressive Mars rising @26Leo.
Now naturally you see that SA has a Sun-Jupiter conjunction @25Capricorn rising where transit Pluto will soon trod, and that Mr. Underworld was already near SA's natal Saturn (19Cap22) on October 2, 2018. In fact, Pluto's recent Station on September 30, 2018 @18Cap45 was within orb of SA's natal Saturn, describing a period when power and authority are abused. Plus, the nation is having a Mars Return (10AQ21) this very day (October 11, 2018 at 9:29:52 am BAT Riyadh) and will soon have a three-fer Saturn Return in 2019, exact on: March 23rd; June 7th (Rx); and December 14, 2019, when all accounts are ready to be tallied and lessons have surely been learned (for best karmic results).
And big as life, there's lady Venus so recently turned retrograde (October 5, 2018 @10Sco50) at the top of Saudi Arabia's chart on October 2, 2018 conjunct the nation's natal North Node of meetings and encounters. As you know, the top of a horoscope is the most visible point, the Midheaven/Goal Point--the World Stage. Whether October 2nd Venus represents Khashoggi's fiancee and/or the concepts of jealousy and vengeance, yours truly does not know. But Mr. Khashoggi is known as a critic of the Saudi regime and since he allegedly entered the embassy to get papers that would allow them to marry, perhaps this Venus in this particular chart represents love, romance, and relationships--and meetings (NN) about love matters. Yet we cannot rule out negatives such as betrayal and spying because Venus is in brooding, secretive Scorpio, a sign associated with death, control, and in-depth investigation which includes journalism and reporters like Jamal Khashoggi.
Of course, journalists are often considered by the regimes they cover to be spies, are they not?

For more details on this disturbing topic see today's CNN report Saudis Discussed Plan to Lure Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia, US intercepts show which didn't work on him so they used the Saudi embassy in Istanbul to 'detain' him. And from 2016 along the same lines, also see Does Vladimir Putin Kill Journalists?.

Nikki Haley Astrology Chart




Now that US Ambassador to the UN has re-signed her post two days prior to planet Venus slinking through Scorpio and turning re-trograde @10Sco50 (October 5th), a peek at her 'noon' horoscope is in order and may be viewed at Star4Cast, Marjorie Orr's excellent website.


Also included is a view of Haley's natal chart blended into a composite chart with that of Donald Trump--and it's fairly curious! Plus, if you haven't, check out Haley's natal Mars-Uranus opposition which squares her natal Mercury in Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business. (Nikki Haley January 20, 1972 Lansing, MI, birth time unknown.)



Mars-Uranus = Mercury: acting independently and drawing heavily upon one's nervous energy reserves (perhaps she's all tired out! jc); a test of strength or power carried out calculatingly; an achievement or invention thought out in great detail; excessive irritation of the nerves (Ebertin).


A primary feature is that the combining of their natal charts and planets results in a difficult, frustrating Mars-Saturn square, not the best portent for an easy, lengthy relationship, or it may be sporadic or alternate between apathy and cooperation. Still, Haley says she's supporting Trump in 2020 and apparently intends to stump on his behalf. The square also denotes a tendency toward bad timing, an idea the GOP is publicly sporting due to Haley's resignation only one month prior to the 2018 Midterms (unheard of!). Good timing for her though.


Hopefully, Ambassador Haley is not involved or connected in any way with the disappearance or murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi who hasn't been seen alive since he walked into the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul, Turkey. After all, Nikki Haley has been hangin' with all nationalities at the United Nations and might 'know a little something' about the case.


So in spite of her resignation, Haley and Trump are so far expressing no rancor between them as she prepares to re-turn to the private sector at or by the end of 2018, possibly to earn money to balance her personal budget. Yet we know that 'Venus scorned' is an archetype within the Venus in Scorpio model along with potentials within Scorpio for brooding intensity and betrayal. It has been reported that she was mightily upset when Trump passed her over for Secretary of State and named oil magnate Rex Tillerson to the post. Bruise! So it will be interesting yet sad to see if Mr. Trump turns at some point toward criticizing Nikki Haley who may have become too high profile at the UN for attention-vampire Trump's weak ego to manage.


Now here are a few details concerning the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') of Nikki Haley:


January 16, 1972 @25Capricorn; 10 North themes: communication is emphasized along with frustrating or inhibiting events via news, paperwork, or a young person; feeling tired and drained; must work through difficulties one at a time (Brady).


A 10 North eclipse last occurred on February 7, 2008 as what I then called 'The Unmasking Eclipse' @17AQ45 because of its degree's Sabian Symbol. And it is my belief that the current solar eclipse which manifested on August 11, 2018 in the 2 New North series ('The Tower') has activated the potential themes of The Unmaking Eclipse which, on a subterranean level of the Collective Mind, so that its 'wild card' Uranian energies combine with our current eclipse theme of 'collapse of lifestyles, plans, and structures'.


As for 'The Tower' collapse potentials we're mired in now, my personal best-case scenario would be the ultimate collapse of Donald Trump's Tower of Lies which in 2018 trembles on shaky ground.

DC Horoscopes: July 2019 Solar and Lunar Eclipses

Dual Horoscopes: lower left, Solar Eclipse July 2, 2019 3:16:06 pm edt Washington DC @10Can37; Lunar Eclipse (upper right) July 16, 2019 5:38:07 pm est Washington DC @24Cap04:

Please note that the Hour of the Lunar Eclipse is Venusian (which was left off the chart mea culpa!) and transit Venus @16Can15 will have conjoined the degree of the July 2nd Solar Eclipse (10Can37) and that the transiting North Node of the Moon will conjoin the Solar Eclipse degree near mid-July 2019. Also note that Solar Eclipses in Moon-ruled Cancer reveal that emotional extremes block karmic progress and the urge is to withdraw emotionally from eclipse affairs and events--to hide in Cancer the Crab's shell (Lineman). Yet we know that an accompanying Lunar Eclipse reveals something about our reactions to the karmic conditions and events indicated by the Solar Eclipse.

In July 2019, the Solar Eclipse is Total which has the strongest influence and/or is most widely ranging in its effects (for eclipse posts I go by degrees and not so much by the patch of visibility because I've been affected by too many eclipses that I couldn't 'see'). The Lunar Eclipse is Partial which suggests weaker efforts being made to deal with issues, or that efforts may fall short of their intended aims--that constructive efforts may be lacking or partially lacking. With Saturn-ruled Capricorn, some element of control or a form of limitation may be on the emotionally based solar agenda which occurs so near America's Independence Day that the eclipse is 'personalized' for the US.

Financier and Politician Jupiter Rx in 2nd house, then rising at the Lunar Eclipse

Finances delayed? Budget strife on Capitol Hill and/or perhaps the US dollar losing more of its global sheen? Limitations on economic policies? Well naturally, eclipses across the Cancer-Capricorn polarity relate to security issues, Career vs Family and Home situations, and to ambition, strategy, and direction taken in the realms of Business, Government, Law, Finance, and Investment. Also notable in such realms is the conjunction of Saturn with the South Node, the 'tail of the dragon' @17Cap36/43. Please enlarge the image to read my notes on this difficult and limiting hook-up highlighted in green and penned on the right side of the image. And as you see in the Lunar Eclipse chart, the 2/8 axis of Money, Values, Finances, and Big Business is where this conjunction clusters which suggests the necessity to rise by force via self-reliance--and this tallies with transit Uranus in money sign Taurus where new sources of income may need to be found. We will certainly know more of such issues by the time of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020, an indicator of a 'new social order' and which conjuncts the natal Vertex of fate for Mr. Trump.

And finally, 3 North Solar Eclipses also manifested in the years 1911, 1929 (3N is the PE of 'Black Tuesday' 1929), 1947, 1965, 1983 (Reaganomics!), 2001 (the PE of 9/11/01, as noted on the chart), 2019 (this chart), and will next occur in 2037. 3N's initial eclipse manifested on October 10, 991 @22Gem06 conjunct what became US natal Mars so military and war issues cannot be ruled out in 2019 under Donald Trump whose natal MC (The Goal Point) happens to conjoin the Lunar Eclipse's 6th cusp, the house of Military, Police, and Civil Service.


Synastry Grid: Trump's and America's natal planets

This Is Us: the Trump-US Relationship

by Jude Cowell

A synastry grid comparing the natal planets of Donald Trump with America's natal planets is replete with potentials for tension, anger, scandals, notoriety, confusion, misunderstandings, deception, and undermining by and of allies--but also an attraction, plus the possibility of Chirotic healing, or at least a soothing, of our society's past hurts which I suspect refers primarily to his constant opening of America's oldest wound and flaw, racism, and to how his rhetoric and policies continue the class divide that began in ye olde Jamestown Colony centuries ago. Instead he chooses to stir up trouble on these issues, capitalizes on them, and shoves an even wider wedge between us in any way he can. For everyone knows that 'divide and conquer' tactics always work against the American people.

And as you know, his nibs is an anything-to-gain-power demagogue full of emotional turmoil and suffers with a bottomless pit of ego needs that can never be fully satisfied. We can see Trump's natal Moon-South-Node conjunction as basic evidence of his extreme emotional deprivation via estrangement from Mother, an estrangement the adult Donald can't seem to recover from and I suppose most of us never could whose Mother went missing in some way.

So in this post I shall attempt to provide brief notes on some of the main aspects between Trump's and our national planets but without US natal ASC and MC - except for two as-ifs because they seem to apply - 'DT Neptune conjoins US natal MC' (00Lib47) and 'DT Pluto trines US ASC' - since a variety of timings are used for the US natal chart (July 4, 1776) which gives differing chart angles. Here I'm using a 5:09 pm LMT US chart with 12Sag08 rising but US planets remain in basically the same positions no matter which hour is used on that date with the natal Moon remaining in Aquarius.

Mr. Trump's planets ('DT') are listed vertically (on the left) while US planets ('US') are listed horizontally; aspects are not listed in weighted order:

Reading from left to right beginning with Trump's natal Moon:

DT Moon inconjuncts US Mercury: emotional Trump vs US rationality causes friction.

DT Moon opposes US Mars: anger issues; 'time bomb' set to explode; stirred up emotions; actions and reactions motivated by emotions; emotional connection to the military. DT Mars opposes US Moon emotions boil over; rash actions; hostility; feeling under siege; angry women.

DT Moon squares US Neptune: living in a fog; emotional upsets; domestic troubles; taking everything personally; retreating to familiar territory (see golf pic, below); grief or loss.

DT Moon trines US Chiron: capitalizing on our hidden or deepest emotional needs; consciousness of our national wounds; opportunities for healing.

DT Moon sesqui-squares US North Node (the public): strong emotions litter a hard-to-travel journey.

DT Sun trines US Moon (We The People): enthusiastic feelings; pride and optimism.

DT Sun conjoins US Mars: taking risks; impulsive actions; exciting--never a dull moment.

DT Sun squares US Neptune: confrontations with reality; efforts to deliberately mislead; overwhelming problems; confusion; treading water to stay afloat.

DT Sun sextiles US Chiron: consciousness of the potential for transformation.

DT Chiron squares US Sun: issues of socio-cultural authority.

DT Sun semi-squares US North Node: a fated yet challenging attraction; a destined relationship.

DT Mercury conjuncts US Sun: consciousness of personal intent.

DT Mercury conjuncts US Venus: discussing goals, joint ventures, relationships, legal matters; giving advice.

DT Mercury conjuncts US Jupiter: communicating about political activities, publishing, cultural pursuits; expansion of advertising, propaganda, current news, plans; international communications.

DT Mercury squares US Saturn: application of plans, methods, or ideas delayed, limited, or blocked; plans must be re-done.

DT Neptune conjuncts US MC: professions may be related to the occult (such as Masonry and the Masonic hand signals he constantly tosses out during his on-camera rhetoric); unreliability; scandals, secret intrigues, and public disgrace.

DT Pluto trines US ASC: a driving ambition toward leadership; understanding power and how to deal with or use those in power; home or profession as a base for occult endeavors; favors those who work in Politics.

Oct 8, 2018 Libra New Moon conjunct US natal Saturn

A New Cycle in the Saga of America's Libran Scales of Justice?

by Jude Cowell

On Monday October 8, 2018 at 11:47 pm edt, a New Moon perfects at 15Lib48 conjunct US natal Saturn (14:48) and denoting the beginning of a new cycle of activity in the realms of Saturn. That the Libra New Moon conjoining our national Saturn relates currently to the highly unpopular Kavanaugh seating on the Bench of the Supreme Court as a new term for the Justices begins seems obvious but in this complex universe of ours, this can hardly be the only result.

Upon reflection, my suspicion from within our two-tiered justice system, is that one result has to do with legal planet Saturn's realms of lawmaking and enforcing, responsibility, realism, authenticity, and accountability. For more details see David Sorota's article America's New Aristocracy Lives in an Accountability-free Zone in which Brett Kavanaugh is mentioned along with several other topics that lesson-bringer and taskmaster Saturn cannot possibly be pleased with. Naturally, Donald Trump's imperative that it be Kavanaugh on the Bench is noted because Brett is in favor of expanding presidential power (without accountability thus placing POTUS above the law) and will work to destroy states' rights to hold the powerful accountable for their crimes through state prosecution. Other far right SCOTUS decisions will be forthcoming, their degrading effects unknown but suspected at this time.

Yes, America's exalted-in-Libra natal Saturn has been under fire for decades (if not centuries!) and it became notably obvious in recent memory during the presidency of Bill Clinton when, in 1996, US natal Saturn turned retrograde by progression and has for years, been in early Scorpio rather than the legal eagle planet's more upstanding, comfortable position in Libra so that America's tradition of (Saturnian) reliability began to fade into Mars-Pluto-ruled Scorpio's brooding darkness and obstinacy.

And note that today's position of transit Saturn conjoins US Progressed ('SP') Moon (The People) which, as I type, falls at 2Cap31, a depressive, oppressive influence that a majority of the populace feels via the Kavanaugh confirmation and the expected negative results from Bart's future SCOTUS decisions which are expected to sway the court toward far right conservatism.

And since the horoscope of the New Moon in Libra links to the Pentagon's natal chart (plus, the New Moon chart's angles conjoin its natal angles--with US SP Jupiter Rx @15Cancer conjunct the Pentagon's natal ASC), below is our death star's natal chart with the Libra New Moon chart surrounding it. Notes are penned on if you care to enlarge the image where you'll see transit Saturn @3Cap24 in Pentagon's natal 6th house of Military, Police, and Civil Service inconjunct natal Pluto @3Leo30 (which conjoins its natal Chiron = plutocracy). Transit Saturn also opposes the Pentagon's natal Mars, the warrior planet (see notes on chart, lower right). Transit Pluto @18Cap46 is angular (conjunct Descendant) and, as you see, has entered the Pentagon's natal 7th house of Open Enemies and Partnerships from where Pluto squares the Pentagon's natal 4th house Moon @20Lib32, a period of obstacles placed upon desires. This Pluto also inconjuncts natal Jupiter (@20Gem59 in 12th house of Politics, Karma, and Self-Undoing) indicating opportunism is underway--that someone is 'victimizing' the Pentagon to satisfy their own personal objectives. Now who in Washington would do such a thing?

Well, 20Gemini points directly toward Trump's natal Sun-NN-Uranus trio and also toward America's natal Mars in Gemini which brings in our national Mars-Neptune square of misguided motivations and wasted energy which happen to be the themes of the Pentagon's Prenatal Solar Eclipse (@25Pis45--conjunct its Midheaven, the Goal Point!) in the 16 South Saros Series (see note on the chart). A 16 South solar eclipse last manifested on April 29, 2014 @9Taurus conjunct the Pentagon's natal Sun (8Tau38) and the next 16S won't occur until May 9, 2032 @19Taurus--conjunct the Pentagon's natal Mercury (19Tau07 in 11th house). Misdirection and waste indeed.

Oct 5, 2018 Kavanaugh Senate Vote as Venus turns

As I begin to type October 5, 2018 10:30 am edt, the Senate is said to be voting or are about to vote today on passing Brett Kavanaugh's name on to tomorrow's final vote on his confirmation to the US Supreme Court. My blogging time is brief this Friday morning so I'll simply publish the 10:30 am edt horoscope set for the Capitol Building with the 'noon' natal horoscope of Judge Kavanaugh around it and note the continued frothiness of the Jupiter-Neptune influences, plus the fact that Kavanaugh was born under the same problematic vibes of a Mercury-Neptune square that tends to live in its own imaginary world and have other tendencies which may be read about here:

You see Venus in sexy Scorpio at Station Direct and turning retrograde at 3:04 pm edt while still holding true are the things we've discussed about transit Jupiter opposing Kavanaugh's natal Jupiter (he's unimpressive--ask retired Justice Stephens) and Jupiter conjoining off and on his natal Neptune, a time of pretense, acting, and presenting qualities that one does not actually have--in other words, misrepresenting one's character. As for Venus changing direction on this particular day during this particular event, we might wonder if a lady (Venus) will be reviewing or reversing (Rx) her testimony or perhaps her vote, one way or the other.

Is There Anyone Left for Donald Trump to Con? - clip

October 3, 2018:

Support The Thom Hartmann Show via his patreon page.

~:~

Yes, these days veiling Neptune floating through its own sign of secretive Pisces is having its eroding way with the truth these days but Truth was, is, and will always be the real deal, a Saturnian sort of thing!

For as you know, the world operates within the cycle of Saturn realism and Neptune illusion, the last cycle of which began in 1989 with a three-fer Great Conjunction of Saturn and Neptune (three due to planetary retrogression):

1. March 3, 1989 @11Cap55

2. June 24, 1989 @11Cap14

3. November 13, 1989 @10Cap22

As you see by the dates, these conjunctions perfected just after the 1989 Inauguration of Bill Clinton on January 20, 1989 and put a firm Saturn-Neptune imprint upon Bill Clinton, his presidency, and his administration. Welfare reform and attempted healthcare reform are areas that first come to mind under Bill Clinton because of the association of social welfare, poverty, and illness with the Saturn-Neptune pair.

And for those of us who use a late afternoon July 4, 1776 horoscope as America's natal or founding chart, there's the 10th house Saturn and the 9th house Neptune on either side of the MC (Midheaven; The Goal). Among other things, this pair's blended energies represent materialism (Saturn) vs Idealism (Neptune), a basic struggle for our nation since day one. And it can also indicate 'secret' or 'invisible' (Neptune) government (Saturn) and and Democratic Socialism which is the form of government that I believe a majority of Americans prefer (since Medicare and other successful programs are socialistic). This form of government supports life rather than the inherent death and suffering embedded within austerity programs, no matter their label or moniker.

And of course, the 10 to 12 degree range of Capricorn opposes America's natal Sun (13Cap19; leadership) so that deceptive activities and schemes have found a nourishing base in which to flourish and deceptive business practices are constantly exposed if not held accountable in any significant way--all behavior approved of by fraudulent Neptune. There is a positive side to astrological Neptune, as you know, but we're considering politics here, that "organized system of hatreds." Obviously transit Saturn will again oppose US natal Sun, exact in mid-January 2019 when the challenge of Saturnian accountability comes to call.

And when transit Saturn (today @3Cap11) moves within orb of, then conjoins, the 1989 conjunction degree of 10Cap22 in November 2018 (and of influence into January 2019), we may see authority figures and/or senior folk getting to the heart of the truth concerning matters that have previously eluded public knowledge because taking on such tedious tasks will be the order of the day--as it is already. And since a three-fer planetary conjunction denotes an extended period of time, my hope is that Truth will hold sway long enough to make a real difference in America and for the American People and the world now being run by criminal syndicates.

Did Trump Learn from Joseph Goebbels?

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." Joseph Goebbels

If you wish, check out Goebbels' accurately timed horoscope (RR: AA) with its Neptune-Pluto conjunction in Gemini and said Neptune, planet of fraud, delusion, deception, and propaganda @22Gem13 masking the natal Sun of Donald Trump which is a perfect picture of two propagandists who use lies (the bigger the more effective) to influence people, make fools of them, and promote whatever cause they couldn't promote at all if the truth were admitted.

Now as you know, one major clue that someone is a liar is the constant use of phrases like, "Believe me". Well, in case you missed it, here's a 5-minute video segment of Jimmy Kimmel celebrating Trump's 2,000-lie milestone that Trump reached--in January 2018!
