An Echo from 1964 Reverberates in 2016
by Jude Cowell
Since the former governor of Arizona and USA senator, Barry Goldwater, ran for the presidency in 1964, it occurred to me that his advice could be valuable to our two erstwhile (okay, one erstwhile) candidate/s so here is a sample of Goldwater Wisdom:
"Now those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth, and let me remind you they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyranny."
Let us hope not on the 'hellish tyranny'. Besides, isn't it enough that in 2016 the American people have had two baggage-toting 'candidates' forced upon us (both seeming to have underworld elements lurking about) so that shadowy Global Government figures can impress us with the idea that America's electoral system and every other US system of government we can name is in serious danger of crashing into ruins? If so, we can blame the instigators, agents, bankers, and the other shills and crooks who infiltrated our bureaucracy several decades ago. They are tenacious. But our form of government remains unsullied by their villainy.
Astro-Notes: Barry Morris Goldwater
Born on January 2, 1909 (one source says 'Jan 1') in Phoenix, Arizona, Mr. Goldwater seems to have a practical double Earth Sun Cap-Moon Taurus personality blend of sound intellect and moral fiber. A sense of proportion and preference for traditional values must have been at odds considering the quirky Aquarian flavor of the man. Check out his natal horoscope and you'll see what I mean about this Republican environmentalist!
Barry Goldwater's natal horoscope carries only a 'DD" rating because the birth data is Conflicting/Unverified (collector: Rodden). Even so, you may be impressed by his Capricorn trio of Sun-Uranus-Mercury (11Cap--17Cap) which spotlights a progressive, original, maverick-like personality (Sun-Uranus) and suggests a man who is futuristic, inventive, and easily or quickly bored (Mercury-Uranus). All his Aquarian tendencies are filtered through Saturn-ruled Capricorn which made Politics a natural career choice and channeled his inventive nature into practical concerns.
Also see Goldwater's Wikipedia page where you'll find that he was a 33rd degree Freemason and he collected Hopi kachina dolls. Call me old-fashioned, but to me a major doll collection of any kind seems pretty darned Aquarian with his bad self...
Yet the quirkiness continues! Because 2016 candidate Donald Trump has a curious (but probably unconscious) link to the prophetic Hopi Indians, too, via his Natal Moon and the Sapphire Star which is more prominent in his natal horoscope because his Sun and Moon are in opposition across the Gemini-Sagittarian axis--and on the Nodal axis as well.
Well, maybe the Hopi connection for both presidential hopefuls relates subliminally to America's Founding Fathers and their design and construction of Washington DC because the Star of Prophecy, Porrima, (and you can't make this up) is the star that the phallic Washington Monument was designed to emphasize, with Porrima also a star of fertility.
Can you imagine Mr. Trump filling the monumental boots of General Washington? Can you imagine how huge the monument a 'President Trump' would demand?
Upcoming Event: Astro-Notes on the Sept 26, 2016 POTUS Debate unless Mr. Trump chickens out or Hillary has another health crisis or sends another email that rises to the level of a scandal. Here's hoping that their 'debate' won't turn into an embarrassing spectacle of barking insults and resting rich face.
