Update May 24, 2013: see article Spying on Occupy Activists by Matthew Rothschild (in which we find that overbearing corporatists are not going to let US citizens get away with protesting against them and their sorriness no matter how much surveillance it takes.)
Original post begins here:
This just in from Forbidden Knowledge TV:
The Big Push is all happenin' at the state level, folks. If we've learned our lesson about neocons, endless war, and the super rich 1% who care not a fig for democracy, we've got to get with our own program and help each other out!
Here's the Wikipedia page for the Koch family. I'm sure you can sort out the two politically active siblings from there. A few astro-notes concerning them might be of interest so read on, if you wish!
Both brothers were born in Wichita, Kansas: Charles the elder on November 1, 1935 and David on May 3, 1940 with Moon either in Pisces or Aries. I'm using noon for both horoscopes in lieu of a correct birth hour, and for David, Moon in fiery Aries rather than in dreamy, compassionate Pisces. (On May 3, 1940, the transiting Moon reached Aries Point of Fame and Prominence at 8:52 am CST, and David the Libertarian has run for public office.)
Charles the elder was born with a Sun Scorpio-Moon Capricorn personality blend (Mars-Pluto; Saturn), a practical Water-Earth combination. Fanatical views both political and financial may be found within his Uranus-Pluto square (early Taurus to late Pisces, with both planets Rx and feeling their oats since 2010 via the current transiting Uranus-Pluto Cardinal Square.) Charles will be experiencing his Uranus Return around age 84, and his natal Pluto 27Can24 Rx opposes US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx: power v power for ultimate control.
Historical note: 1935 is the year the swastika became the official flag of Germany, and the Gallup Poll was introduced in the US.
Natal Mars @2Cap+ directs his energies and actions most efficiently and Jupiter in corporate Scorpio speaks for itself given his extreme wealth. Disruptive if restricted, Charles is actually something of a worrywart and this is born out by his Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Series, 9 New South, with its theme of 'long term worries over loved ones or communications, or, chickens coming home to roost in relation to paperwork' (Brady.) You may remember this PE the last time it occurred on September 11, 2007, and if I had time, I'd search for what ruthless Mr. C. Koch was up to in 2007 because the info might be quite elucidating.
Public crusader Charles Koch has two apt 'Images for Integration' as given by Charles & Suzi Harvey (Sun Sign-Moon Sign): "A general leads his troops to victory...A film director plans each shot to maximize its emotional impact."
And I can't resist adding three quotes from three people who share his Sun Sco-Moon Cap blend for they might illuminate his character a bit:
"Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash." Gen. George Patton.
"Puritanism...helps us enjoy our misery while we are inflicting it on others." Marcel Ophuls.
"He was like a cock who thought the sun had risen to hear him crow." George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans.)
Now let's peek at David using the Venus-Mars, bulldozing Earth-Fire combo of Sun Taurus-Moon Aries. Charismatic and stubborn, this blend denotes one who has unswerving belief in himself--he's a go-getter who aims for what he wants without hesitation. Taking charge in all cooperative ventures is a talent (for those who like that sort of riding-roughshod method); domination and power are his goals. David is quite a pioneer, a trait supported by his adventurous Jupiter in Mars-ruled Aries (as is his natal Mercury.)
Yet curiously, with Saturn in Taurus, he is actually rather cautious with money, plus, he was born during a harsh Saturn-Pluto square with Pluto in very early Leo (powerful ego.)
Historical note: 1940 saw The Blitz (bombing of London and other cities), Winston Churchill became Britain's PM, and in the US Franklin Roosevelt was elected for the third time.
Now the PE for David Koch is the 14 South which last manifested on May 20, 2012 @00Gem20 (conjunct fixed star Alcyone of the Pleiades, key phrase: something to cry about; 14S's theme has a compulsively manipulative Mercury-Pluto flavor and denotes 'an obsessive idea is finally accepted' vibe (Brady.)
Perhaps you'll agree that one of the Sun Tau-Moon Aries "Images for Integration" may apply closely to the strong personality of the super rich and politically active Mr. D. Koch:
"A pirate's chest full of gold is discovered, which adds to the already vast empire of Genghis Khan." (Harvey.)
And there's only one descriptive quote from a fellow Sun Tau-Moon Aries personality that I care to type for you in this post so let's close with it since for me, it sums up a certain type of character now financially dominating US politics from the shadows--democracy and We the People be da*ned:
"Power takes as ingratitude the writhings of its victims." Rabindranath Tagore.
Yes. It certainly does.
