A page concerning the two-party political system in America and related topics by Sioux Rose has needed a link here on Stars Over Washington (a Political Astrology blog by yours truly that enters its 10th year on October 16, 2014) so here it is. Astrological principles inform our understanding of events and politicians' actions so I hope those with any sort of interest in Politics, and in using the venerable craft (As Above, So Below!) to peek at the underbelly of that "...organized system of hatreds" (H. B. Adams) will review the article.
As you know, we have an 'Age of Reason' infestation across the nation by those who have infiltrated our ranks (civil, political, financial, economic, even social) and breached our branches of government and other institutions, with the intention of causing an eventual chaotic crash so that the world pleads for the establishment of a 'new world order'.
The Age of Reason, or, Enlightenment, relates astrologically to Uranus-Neptune and to the very important planet Venus, as the archetypal goddess of revenge...and the attraction to and by such brutal behavior (Uranus in Aries, deposited by warrior Mars = zealots, anarchists, and mysticism-loving psychotics who are particularly fond of preying on and oppressing women--just like plutocrats!) As archetypal Niobe (the grieving mother) knows, one reason women and their rights are being suppressed now is that we as a large group seldom advise waging war--and we rightly criticize those-who-refuse-to-be-criticized for their lack of humanity.
Actually, it's only certain individuals and groups who harbor such ideas of how the world should be fashioned in this 'New Millennium'--captive, enslaved, and with all 'chaff' gleaned away genetically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Anyone who remains standing if these global jokers have their way had better "Get Onboard the Train or Get Left Behind." My belief is that what America's hawkish re-entry into Iraq and Syria (and beyond) are signified by astrologically these days is the Locomotive pattern formed between the planets with a proud and solar Leonine Jupiter wearing his General's fancy beanie as he leads a reluctant nation into an obvious continuance of perpetual war that the out-of-bounds power elite simply can't resist profiting from.
Not that the old guys in charge (Joint Chiefs of Staff, foreign influencers and global bankers bald and bold as they may be) and the gals who assist them actually do any physical fighting, mind you. Did you catch today's Meet the Press with Admiral Michael McMullen, former chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff for President Obama--admitting to Chuck Todd that public opinion is not a factor in his or other generals' decisions on war? If any American had ever missed that fact, there it is again. For-by-of The People, anybody?
Actually, let's make that 'never' a factor in decisions since most of us well remember how Bush, Cheney, the other Vulcans, Theocrats, and Zionists ignored the anti-war opinions of millions of people both here and abroad who protested in the streets--against invading the sovereign nation of Iraq. Guess Saddam's sneaky habit of selling oil on the black market wasn't look upon lightly by Bush, Cheney, and their oil-men colleagues and shareholders. Robbers on all sides!
Well, Jumpin' Oil Production and Profit!
And notice that it is being reported in the US that the 'ISIS-ISIL-IS-Daesh' army has taken over oilfields that others think they own so if we add that to the religious war/final days script many of the Uranus-in-Aries zealots now act under so unpredictably, erratically, and cold-heartedly (and happily egged on by global string pullers), one result is perpetual, endless war ('it ain't over till it's over'?) meant to wipe out Muslims, Christians, and all 'useless eaters' as the super-wealthy class of elites deem the masses to be, as per old Freemason Albert Pike, a Confederate General whose statue remains standing in the District of Columbia.
Why some folks might wonder if Pike is now represented by Jupiter the General! In the 1880s, Pike worked toward and on behalf of waging World War III, you know, and I admit to seeing this very plan being played out by current Washington DC agents and operatives. (President Obama? His natal Mars is veiled discreetly by US natal Neptune in Virgo--the virgin-whore motif--hinting at secret motives and a hidden agenda); plus, elusive goddess worship is an integral part of their 'peaceful' presidential baton-passing with its feminine goddess psychopathy, and echoing support of America's problematic Mars-Neptune square from 1776 = misdirected energy and aims played out under the 'fog of war'.
The two Societal Planets, Jupiter and Saturn, now square off = Ds vs Rs 2014; and two Eclipses highlight where our attention is most needed
Now yes, I do know that many people now predict a collapse of the anti-democratic global government plan to rule a totalitarian world while the hidden planners of this massive anti-societal project continue to be outed and rightfully ridiculed by the public. I'm happy to hear that self-exalting power elites will fall under their own weight, ruined by the overly forceful energy they use for this is certainly a possibility as transiting creep Pluto (transformation, death) heavily plods back and forth through structural Capricorn (sign of government, law, and business), toppling heads of state as he creeps. Even political incumbents' gravy trains are trundling on shaky tracks because the November 4, 2014 midterms cometh!
Yet we may as well admit that the global government script will continue to be followed by whatever 'victors' emerge from the political frays of 2014 and 2016. Hasn't Mr. Obama's alleged turn-around on troops returning to Iraq been evidence enough if you weren't persuaded before? The now-convenient fact is that it was George Bush who signed the agreement with al-Maliki to deploy all US troops from the region by December 2011 and this circumstance was set up as part of the process toward a Pike-ish Third World War with the added benefit of giving the next commander-in-chief political cover as needed. This helps obfuscate the Big Picture while our 'dovish' president succumbs to pressure from the environment.
However, perhaps the role of Uranian 'wild card' that Solar and Lunar Eclipses tend to perform will support such discoveries as the true identities of guilty parties and their dark secrets and will make a real difference for The Collective as October 2014 nears and provides global society with two cosmic spotlights: a Lunar Eclipse in mid-Aries on October 8th (Moon conjunct Uranus Rx and South Node--excitable yet unpredictable energies rush in, past behavior is depended upon no matter how inappropriate to current situations as war is promoted, and bad timing and rash, belligerent actions cause big problems making conditions worse than before.) Then occurs an intense, controlling (Mars-Pluto) Solar Eclipse @00Sco24 on October 23, 2014 with influences which many people may find enjoyable. Meanwhile, purveyors of rebellion and conflict address large financial issues along with relationship concerns, separations, and lack of cohesiveness within coalitions. Guess that is their enjoyment.
And of course, the generational Cardinal Square between anarchist and rebel Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries and ancient manipulator and saboteur Pluto (with his Invisible Helmet and hidden wealth in all the sneaky places) will continue to support conflict between plutocratic rulers, heads of state and church, and their minions by bringing forward opposition from others who disagree with them on various topics including on the battlefield. Except as stated above, because the people are expected to do the actual fighting once a sufficient amount of propaganda has been applied to public sensibilities and confusion over true issues reigns...fact v fiction, Saturn v Neptune.
Some people just don't like to be pushed and ordered around, oh global dweebs and dead-enders of satan!
And so my generationally inspired 'Flower Power' self prefers to encourage better outcomes to these conflicts and dilemmas filtered through the then-popular 1960s--1970s slogan so sadly appropriate for civil society in 2014: What if they threw a war and nobody showed up? Of course, the other side of that coin is: let's put bankers, corporatists, and warhawks into a ring and let them duke it out with whoever shows up to block their arrogant, over-arching agenda of conquest.
Or is it 'whomever'?
Again I shall note on SO'W that the long-lasting Cardinal Square between Uranus and Pluto (Aries-Capricorn--the Ram and the Goat, or Mer-Goat--not much difference between these head-butters!) becomes exact (partile) twice more on: December 15, 2014 and March 17, 2015, points in time when the Square's conflicting energies, power struggles, and challenges become most intense though the stop-go method of Mars-Saturn contacts also continue to lighten things up occasionally on this heinous path to Hades our governments and their bosses have plunked us upon so crassly...as gradually, very gradually America has been turned in a self-undoing direction at least since 'Manifest Destiny' reared its greedy, goatish head and morphed into our meddling in the affairs of other countries--in tandem with its misguided brother, preemptive war.
America: No Longer a Beacon of Freedom if ever it was
The background energy of the period from now until some time after March 17, 2015 I find to be one that may on one level be described by a certain Sabian Symbol for '2 Libra', the rounded-up degree of the September 24, 2014 New Moon: "The Light of the Sixth Race Transmuted to the Seventh". Depending on which hour is used to set up the natal horoscope, this is one of the rounded-up degrees of America's Midheaven, The Goal Point, on July 4, 1776 if one wished to use its Jupiterian Ascendant at or about 12 Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker. It includes a very early Libra MC with '2Lib' hinting at archetypal goddesses and occult motives of America's Founding Fathers who may or may not have clearly envisioned exactly how recent and current anti-government usurpers would cynically grasp the reins of power and command in order to drive our nation over a totalitarian 'new world order' cliff in the mistaken belief that they will be royally rewarded. And they think we're the gullible pigeons!
