Thomas Paine = Illuminati, Uranus in Aries = Radical Utopians: America's Destiny?
by Jude Cowell
Since I wrote a piece in 2006 on the Sun to Chiron-Chiron to Sun double transit to the natal horoscope of Thomas Paine, I have read more references to Paine as a Freemason (already known) and as one of the Illuminati of his day.
And if you've read this blog before, you know I'm not fond of those who descend either biologically or ideologically from Weishaupt's Illuminati sect nor am I fond of their global domination plans which seem in 2011 to be well underway for major implementation, perhaps within the much-touted and often feared Year 2012. Yet even they are subject to the natural law of karma and must reap what they sow, much as they prefer to think otherwise.
After all, in 2012 a major market crash is predicted by astrologers and economists alike which is the 'crisis of opportunity' ploy of operatives such as Henry Kissinger and others you and I could name. For Financial Astrology of the markets, I recommend the work of mundane astrologer Theodore White at Global Astrology. Crash-forecasting economists are all over the place so you'll have no problem locating all you want.
Paine, Jefferson, Franklin, and Their Secretive Pal, Adam Weishaupt
Well, perhaps it's impossible to be certain whether Paine and his 18th century Illuminati colleagues such as Thomas Jefferson (a Freemason and Illuminatist--Ben Franklin was a Mason and Rosicrucian, plus, a Rosicrucian decoder was found at Monticello in Jefferson's effects after his death) were duped by Weishaupt's Utopian ruse of an eventual America where we'd all skip around the Sweet Williams while ripe fruit fell from the vines and "reason" would 'perfect' us, making laws unnecessary)--or, whether they were complicit in wanting to establish a totalitarian (Orwellian) regime of complete surveillance and servitude as America's eventual destiny.
Yes, I do have a difficult time meshing the legends of our Founding Fathers based on what what they did and believed in the 1770s and beyond with Weishaupt's devilish Utopian ideals for complete control of mankind. Many of America's founders were Deists yet the principles of the Age of Reason (or, Age of Enlightenment) show a strain of naivety embedded in the same old argument set up by Lucifer--that mankind doesn't need heavenly precepts but can 'do it by himself'.
Speaking as a Christian, their 'Reason Is All' illusion is bosh to me!
Of course, astrologically speaking, man's reasoning ability is a function of Mercury with one of the Enlightenment's favorite planets, Uranus (The Awakener; The Witness), acting as Mercury's higher octave of creative inspiration--the visionary idea of genius that arrives suddenly like a bolt from the blue. I suspect ace deceiver Adam Weishaupt had a lot of such moments, at least in his own estimation.
One clue concerning the awareness of our Founding Fathers of America's ultimate Illuminati-esque destiny has to be the mysterious case of the Cloaked Man in Jefferson's Garden--the one who allegedly rode up out of the darkness with the design for America's Great Seal at-the-ready as Jefferson took a break from consideration of the design along with his colleagues. Perhaps it happened that way, perhaps not. And perhaps Thomas Paine, newly returned from France, WAS that man, as some believe, and I can't deny that the theory of the mystery man's identity as Paine is plausible (and he may also have been co-author of the Declaration of Independence with Jefferson)--if so, he was acting as an agent of Adam Weishaupt when he delivered the seal.
Check out the reverse of the Great Seal, if you haven't, or look at a dollar bill if you have one. The pyramid with the all-seeing eye as capstone is certainly of a Masonic persuasion and the all-seeing eye of surveillance may be said to point forward toward intrusive spy satellites circling the Earth as I type (and agencies monitoring our blogs, websites, emails, and bank accounts!)
And the "1776" on the seal and on paper currency may not actually refer to America's founding year but to the founding by Weishaupt of the Bavarian Illuminati Society on May 1, 1776. Cussedly, we pay homage to the Illuminati by celebrating 'May Day.'
So did Paine, Jefferson, Franklin, and others look forward to the collapsing of America as a sovereign nation--the one they risked their lives, families, and fortunes to create? Is a weird, chaotic, and savage 'Utopia' just around the corner?
What do you think?
Well, in The Combination of Stellar Influences, Reinhold Ebertin gives Uranus in Aries, its present position, as "Utopians" so we know that since 2010 such political radicals are 'in the house'--in the 4th house of America's natal chart, Sibly version (IC 00Ari53, conjunct the Aries Point of World Manifestation (00Ari00); IC = Endings; The Drain; the HOW? Point of any chart...instruments of our nation's demise?)
Uranus to IC may also relate to the House of Congress and the anarchistic, gridlocking Tea Party members (see a list of their names in this blog's sidebar) who campaigned on returning America to her former glory--a sentiment along the lines of Weishaupt's Utopian Dream of mankind's return to the Garden of Eden. But it seems to me that if that were possible, mankind would need God's cooperation to effect such a major change! And Weishaupt was anti-religion and anti-God--sorry, but man's 'reason' just can't do it.
And neither can 'religioso' candidates Michele Bachmann or Rick Perry.
Plus, the Bush-Cheney regime bombed the Holy Land where the Garden was located to smithereens, an indefensible action if one wants to cavort in the original Eden once again, and an imperial agenda which President Obama has followed since January 2009. Of course, as noted on this blog in 2008, Mr. Obama cannot discontinue the agenda of the plutonian one-world-government types because they and their bankers installed him in the White House and can take him out at their discretion if he doesn't play the Big Game to suit them. 'They' turn up these days in horoscopes as manipulative saboteur Pluto, apex planet in dynamic patterns such as T-Squares and the Cardinal Grand Cross.
Well, soon transiting Uranus will return to Aries Point and conjoin the US IC again with much upheaval, but since I'm blogging away from home this week, I don't have my Astrology software or an ephemeris to remind me of the date. Perhaps you'll wish to check it out for the US may experience an event on or near that date which relates to the disturbing topics mentioned in this post.
Now one never knows what quirky, disruptive Uranus will catalyze into action, early, on time, or belatedly. But one thing we can depend on--that the radical Thomas Paine will not be awakening from his Eternal Rest for his work here on Earth, whatever it may have been and for whatever reason, is most definitely done.

As you know, the scientific Age of Enlightenment was marked by a Great Conjunction of futurist Uranus and dreamy Neptune at mid-Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker on a Quest. Their last Great Conjunction/s--three times through 1993--marks the furthering of the New World Order which makes Uranus and Neptune the significators of the one-world-government vision of the Illuminati.
Ebertin gives their combination of energies as "inner illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, idealism, an interest in spiritual subjects, religious problems, mysticism, the growth of subconscious powers or forces." 1993's three conjunctions occurred at or very near '18 Capricorn' = "POLITICAL POWER"...negative (unconscious/shadow side) expression: "smug or strong-armed paternalism"--a 2011 example would be the Occupy Wall Street protests as NYC police strong-arm peaceful demonstrators--our fellow Americans demanding that Wall Street fraudsters pay for their crimes.
Wonder whose side America's founders would be on if they only knew?
