Homeland Security Department: Erosion

Homeland Security an Entity of Revenge

by Jude Cowell

Several moons ago on Jude's Threshold, my WordPress blog, I published a Homeland Security Department Horoscope set for November 25, 2002 1:44 pm est Washington DC with 27Pis29 rising. Since then I've discovered an alternate timing for the entity in my files of 1:46 pm est with 28Pis19 rising and 29Sag05 at Goal Point ('MC', at "The Pope Blessing the Faithful" degree). Any reader having more accurate data, please leave it in a comment with this post, and thanks!

Meanwhile, 'HoSec' operations began on March 1, 2003 with the agency created in "response" to the attacks of September 11, 2001. This is the reason the subtitle of this post is Entity of Revenge. But it was misguided revenge as it turned out since invading Afghanistan and then Iraq showed bad aim by the Bush-Cheney administration - and America's foggy, misdirected 1776 Mars-Neptune square of erroneous inspiration was utilized once again. Even our attackers on 9/11/01 had better aim than Dubya, at least in part, with one plane going down in Pennsylvania, thanks to the actions of its courageous passengers.

Shady Neptune in Secretive Pisces

Now anyone keeping up with the path of nebulous Neptune through its own sign of oceanic Pisces knows that today's position of the gaseous giant is @27Pis24. Therefore, a Neptune-to-Ascendant transit is in progress (and has been for some time) for the Homeland Security Department. This relates to our country's national security, and to its weakened condition brought along by classified and other documents purloined, shared, and probably sold to the highest bidder by the orange denizen of Mar-a-Lago. So on one level, Neptune-to-Ascendant is symbolic of our society's current condition of susceptibility to negative forces of subversion, deception, and fraud, both internally and externally.

Then you may have seen a Rolling Stone headline in July 2023 that Maga Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene, Will Sit on the Homeland Security Committee, flame-throwing conspiracy buff, non-legislating, QAnon supporter as she is. Here's a previous post concerning Ms. Greene and her Prenatal Solar Eclipse. No birth time is known for my fellow Georgian, last I checked, so this is all I've bothered posting about her nibs.

Potentials of Transit Neptune to Ascendant Include:

Gradual erosion of image, weakened trust, difficulty maintaining position or status; sense of helplessness, confusion, mystery; failure for unknown reasons; impracticality; loss of reality; lack of stamina; used as a tool for selfish interests; can identify crooks, liars, and insincere people (J. Skalka).

Now above you see a list of the November 25, 2002 midpoint pictures and their potential expressions to provide a view of the planetary energies of the day and the entity. Also listed is the Solar Eclipse of influence, the 4 North and its themes of restriction, illusion, and misjudgment. Please enlarge the image to read the rest.

Previously appearing on SO'W: The Conspiracy Party and Its Neptune Return to mid-Pisces - to the extent that there's anything left of the GOP now that Herr T has had his way eroding it into a death cult of personality.

Moral of the story: Vote Blue on November 5, 2024.

3 North and 3 South Eclipses Link 1929, 2001, and 2019: PTSD

Every 18.6 Years Eclipse Themes Repeat within Historical Cycles: Events May Rhyme

by Jude Cowell

Significant events of 1929 include the 'Black Tuesday' Financial Crash on Wall Street which occurred under the influence of a 3 North Solar Eclipse (see eclipse themes listed on the chart, below). Yet the 3 South Solar Eclipse of November 1, 1929 was also of influence. Both 3N and 3S eclipse series contain "traumatic" and/or "transformative news" implications and both have heralded difficult events that continue to reverberate through society in our day.

Significant examples of their reverberations include the WTC Attacks of 9/11/01 (via 3 North) and the Electoral College Vote Eclipse of December 14, 2020 @23Sag08 triggering or activating the 3 South Eclipse of December 14, 2001 by degree (23Sag). This combines their themes which include 4 South's "very strong emotional feelings over money and/or relationships; frustration; suddenly ending relationships; a sense of fatedness." You'll recognize these themes via a sore loser politician and his followers acting out in a vain attempt to keep the orange blighter in power.

Then there's 2019 with a 3 North Eclipse @10Cancer landing among our July 4, 1776 planets of identity: Venus, Jupiter, and Sun - Total and arriving near Independence Day 2019 - and with faithless Tr*mp whining the White House, chewing, swallowing, and flushing documents.

And last but not least, is what I call The Covid Eclipse which led society into January 2020 and the coronavirus pandemic, under the influence of the December 2019 3 South Eclipse, and you know what trauma has been wrought within society - here and globally. So perhaps we can agree that 3 South's traumatic influence is ongoing, now with winter approaching and bad actors determined to make keeping warm more difficul for certain people. Abroad, some folks are buying pot bellied stoves with just such warm objectives in mind.

Note: 3 North and 3 South Solar Eclipses also occurred in the years 1911, (1929), 1947, 1965, 1983, (2001), (2019), and 2037/2038, and

Themes are paraphrased from Predictive Astrology by Bernadette Brady. #ad.

"Reign Of Terror" and the Fixed Grand Cross Eclipse

by Jude Cowell

October 5, 2021: If you're a reader with 18 minutes to spare, you could spend your time much worse than watching 'Reign Of Terror' author Spencer Ackerman interviewed on the Amanpour & Co channel: How the 9/11 Era Destablized America and Produced Trump (#ad). Mr. Ackerman's book is based on his years of national security journalism and reporting on such topics as the victimization across the globe by the so-called 'American Imperialism' tyranny and the loss of our civil liberties in the US since 9/11. The book details events from the Oklahoma City Bombing (horoscope shown) to the Mob Attack of January 6, 2021 ('1/6') with what I'll call 'red hats tips' to demagogue Tr*mp, racism, and the white supremacy movement he spearheaded into the mainstream as if it belongs there.

Speaking as an American who has never been certain that the 9/11/01 WTC attack/s were not inside jobs, 'Reign Of Terror' has been published none too soon. And speaking astrologically, I continue to feel that the 1 North King of Terror Eclipse of August 11, 1999 (the problematic eclipse that Nostradmus pointed toward so long ago - see chart, below) holds many dark clues with its rigid Fixed Grand Cross of Sun-Moon-Mars-Saturn-Uranus, and, if you prefer to count it, the Nodal Axis of destiny, manifesting at or very near mid-degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus-Scorpio/oxen-eagle points, Leo-Aquarius/lion-angel points) - with the four signs' associated animals mentioned in The Book of Revelation.

So now in 2021, in spite of the earth changes now afflicting the globe which are promised to be worsening, you, dear reader, may choose to disagree that humanity is in 'the last days'. Well, of course it's your right to disagree as you wish. Not that I give up hope for mankind at all but simply to face reality if such a difficult reality is soon to be upon us. (Remember I'm a Saturnian astrologer who sees DNA and genetics in horoscopes - the only 'past lives' I find in charts are generational and ancestral!)

So below you see the August 11, 1999 King of Alarm Horoscope with its Fixed Grand Cross and note that Mars-Saturn is the 'death axis' according to Reinhold Ebertin - squaring erratic Uranus (shocks and sudden events) = 'applying brute force; loud, brash disruptions; separation; death' (M. Munkasey; R. Ebertin):

Now the 1999 King of Terror (or, ' of Alarm') Eclipse is member of the 1 North Saros Series with themes of: 'unexpected events place great pressure on personal relationships and groups; issues loom large so make no hasty decisions until influences pass; information is distorted or possibly false; fatigue and/or health problems' (paraphrasing Predictive Astrology by Bernadette Brady #ad). To me this sounds much like events within the 'New Millennium'. And as you know, the 1 North family is also called, The Mother Of All Eclipses because it's number one and this makes it particularly prominent and influential upon earthly events whenever it appears in the 18.6-year eclipse cycle. Additional information can be gleaned from the fact that the initial eclipse in the 1 North family began on January 4, 1639 @13Cap38 (opposite US Sun on July 4, 1776) which means that all 1 North eclipses can be viewed through a Saturnian/Capricornian lens.

Meanwhile, forming a cosmic time link into the second decade of the New Millennium, is the Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @29Leo, also a member of the 1 North family - and it 'eclipsed' the natal Ascendant of one Donald Tr*mp (who infamously removed safety glasses and looked directly at the total eclipse - are his squinting eyes affected by this now?).

So! As a follow-through we might think to wonder when is the next 1 North Solar Eclipse? That solar eclipse will arrive on September 2, 2035 @9Virgo, a degree eclipsed before and which, if I typed about it here, would turn this brief post into an e-book and neither of us want that, am I right?

NYC Horoscopes: 9/11 with 9/11's Solar Return 2021

9/11/21: Jupiter Conjunct 9/11 Uranus and Saturn Conjunct 9/11 Neptune: Group Activities Concerning the Grim Face of Reality

September 7, 2021 by Jude Cowell

Today with AC repairmen working in my apartment I'm only posting a bi-wheel chart of the September 11, 2001 WTC attacks, plus, the 9/11 Solar Return 2021 Horoscope placed around the outside (Sun = "19Virgo": "A Swimming Race" = eliminating the US from global leadership - jc). As you can see, plenty of my study notes are penned upon the image for those who care to read them and I'll limit myself to spotlighting those since an abundance of emotional turmoil comes along with the 20th anniversary of the vengeful attacks - and I don't want to take even a slight chance that any insensitive remarks here might upset my New York relatives and friends - or upset any other family members who were directly affected by the 9/11 attacks, as were mine:

UPDATE September 7, 2021: More info concerning this topic is now published to my WordPress blog Jude's Threshold if you'd like to check it out. jc

Belarus founding data 1920 and 1991 plus an Eclipse

The Road to Belarus Began in 1918 during the German Occupation of the Region

by Jude Cowell (aka, Judith Cowell)

As you've heard, upheaval is occurring in Belarus over fake election results so with Belarus in the news, I'm adding for current or future reference the two sets of data for the founding of Belarus published in Nicholas Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes. Two horoscopes for Belarus ("White Russia") are provided:

Chart #025: "Belarus - Communist" August 1, 1920 12:00 EET (no exact hour known) Minsk, Russia; Sun conjunct Neptune in Leo, Moon @25AQ11; Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Leo; Saturn @10Vir27 opposes Uranus Rx @4Pis41 ('old order vs new order').

Chart #026: "Belarus - Independence" August 25, 1991 18:00 GMT Minsk, Russia ("independence proclaimed between 14.54 GMT and 18.03 GMT"); early Virgo Sun, Moon @6Pis17; triple Leo conjunction of Mercury-Jupiter-Venus with Mercury and Venus both Rx; Saturn Rx @1AQ27; Uranus Rx @10Cap05 conjunct Neptune Rx @14Cap15 (the 'new world order'/"Enlightenment" pair).

The Prenatal Solar Eclipse Saros Series ('PE') under which Belarus declared its independence from the USSR is the 11 South which perfected on July 11, 1991 @19Cancer. Notably, this 11 South of 1991 is also the PE of GHW Bush Sr's creepy 'new world order' speech he delivered to the US Congress on September 11, 1991 touting the globalist Utopian agenda, so long-planned, as a "big idea." You'll note the sinister "9/11" pre-echo.

So to me, spokesman Bush's "big idea" sounds much like the major clue that wafted from the midpoint picture formed by transit Pluto in 2017, the very year Trump pretended to take the Oath of Office and swore his (elusive) allegiance to the US - the year when creepy saboteur Pluto hit the degree of 1993's Uranus-Neptune Conjunction/s @18Capricorn: "The big picture commands a certain course of action which must be followed; very little option to do otherwise" (Tyl).

And the Sabian Symbol for "18Capricorn"? "Smug or strong-armed paternalism." (Jones). Dane Rudhyar gives the degree a revealing picture of "The Union Jack Flag Flies from a British Warship"; he adds, "POLITICAL POWER, its values and its dangers."

Other than perhaps 11 South's themes listed below, I have no insights whatsoever into how Belarus and its current turmoil and violence might play into the Utopian "big picture" which is clearly on someone's radical agenda. Therefore, observers such as myself must wait and watch despite the distractions in the US being play-acted by figurehead Trump whose entry onto the World Stage may seem like a detour on the road to a 'new world order' but whose White House tenure of disruption, chaos, corruption, lawlessness, and anti-constitutionalism may be just what the globalists ordered from the start. Because Democracy and old-fashioned nation-states do get in their way.

So let's close with the themes of 11 South: "the need to make sudden reforms; old ideas and methods fail and new systems are required to deal with events; people will need to think of new ways of handling issues; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed" (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology). Obviously, when it comes to 11 South eclipses, turbulent proceedings are part of the cosmic picture.

And for the sake of historical comparison, the years in which an 11 South Solar Eclipse manifested are 1901, 1919, 1937, 1955, 1973, (1991), 2009 (@29Cap27), 2027, 2045. Oh and by the way: 11 South is the PE series of the American Revolution with its Total Eclipse clocking in @11Pis11!

9/11 Suspects: Philip Zelikow - video (w Cheney's Mars-Pluto-Chiron)

With the Bush-Cheney neocon White House 'the fix was in' in so many ways...

The Corbett Report transcript and sources.

And from May 2016, Trump leaving neocons in the dust though I find that difficult to believe. How about you?

A Related Post: Cheney and 9/11 where we see Dick Cheney's Secondary Progressed (SP) horoscope on the morning of 9/11/01 with his SP Midheaven at 28Can43 and snugged around it, his SP Pluto at 2Leo04 Rx and SP Chiron at 25Can16 so that Pluto-Chiron = MC, the Aspiration Point. As you know, the Pluto-Chiron duo denotes primal violence, plutocracy, fascism, capitalism, other anti-societal -isms, and exploitation of all kinds. In addition, Cheney's SP Mars, planet of war and aggression, conjoins his SP IC (28Cap43; the Foundation of the Matter) at 29Cap26, a critical-crisis degree.

Note that on Election Day 2016 (Nov 8th), the degrees of Cheney's SP IC and SP Mars on 9/11/01 will be conjoined by transit Mars--unaspected--and all late Capricorn planets and points (26--30 degrees) conjoin US natal and SP Pluto.

Wall Street against US Economic Recovery - video

Are you surprised that Wall Street doesn't want the US economy to recover? And after the American people bailed them out! Two words for what these fraudsters who gamble with other people's money are: thieves and crooks.

And yes, as you probably know, the natal horoscope of Wall Street shows a wastrel-spendthrift-fraudster-speculation combination, a conjunction between expansive, over-indulging Jupiter and bubbly, deceitful Neptune. And this relates directly to comments in the video concerning the Obama administration--the last (current) Jupiter-Neptune cycle began with the pair's 3 conjunctions all through 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama's term and right after the Bush-Cheney Heist of 2008.

And all the Jupiter-Neptune fraud and fluffiness fell directly on US natal Moon--We the People!

Jupiter-Neptune = Moon: becoming involved in speculation; little sense of reality; instability; wastefulness; losing oneself in plans. (Ebertin, 'The Combination of Stellar influences.')

As you see, the potential expressions of this midpoint picture perfectly describes, not just Wall Street's scams upon us, but also the culpability of those who took out mortgages and other loans they could not afford. Even 'balloon payments' that increase as payments proceed can be placed under an inflated Jupiter-Neptune umbrella.

Seems that the master plan to destroy America for the sake of 'global government' is going as envisioned including a hint from the attacks on 9/11/01 with the void-of-course Moon (the people) that morning at '28 Gemini', a degree of Bankruptcy. And Heist 2008 continued the master plan with the bankruptcy of our National Treasury. (Setting up global governance is an expensive enterprise, you know.)

Of course, these financial and governmental psychopaths have power only to the extent that we believe they have it--so let's stop believing in them and in their paper society!

"How to Steal an Airplane" video

As it turns out, cyber-hijacking of airplanes has been around for over a dozen years. For your consideration:

When the attacks of 9/11/01 are mentioned, I think of the 9/11/01 horoscope with Mercury (travel) conjunct US natal Saturn (authority; stability, @14Lib48) rising, all at '15 Libra' = "Circular Paths"--note this discussion of airplanes expertly turned from their paths such as the one that hit the second Tower--and including Malaysia 370. This presentation also reminds me of the void-of-course Moon on the morning of 9/11/01 and its implications that something put into action could not be interfered with...such as the course-change a computer-hacked plane would experience.

Transit Mercury to natal Saturn denotes a time of seeking or using information and skills in order to attain a more senior or authoritative status. Remember that Bush and Cheney were recently installed in the White House and were spoken of as "illegitimate" after Justice Rehnquist placed them in office in December 2000 after the bogusness of Jeb Bush's Florida election.

Serious pursuits are also indicated by Mercury to Saturn along with a hint that the preparations for 9/11 were a long term enterprise which resulted in a restriction of ideas and communications--such as police phones that didn't work properly that morning, the often touted inability to "connect the dots" between the FBI and CIA, and the silencing of dissenting journalists and others since that day.

'15 Libra' from The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones; "Keyword: CONGRUITY: a rather extraordinary facility in self-adjustment or practical reorientation." I'll say! After all, it was the 9/11 attacks that allegedly made the US Patriot Act implementation and all the subsequent cyber surveillance by The State 'necessary', sans the US Constitution.

WTC 9/11/01: Mystery of the Missing Gold Bullion (video)

Whistling into the Wind One More Time...

by Jude Cowell

Now you and I have previously discussed here the mysterious 'put options' that were traded just in time for the WTC attacks of 9/11/01 and the ($1.7 billion in) missing gold bullion that had been stored in the basement/s of the WTC buildings--until that morning when thousands of people were murdered.

Turns out that people's lives weren't all that was stolen for it seems a tremendous heist took place on 9/11/01 along with massive insider trading perpetrated by major corporations--the usual suspects. Surprising?

Here are details if you're curious, plus, a 5-minute video on the subject which you might find quite illuminating:

You know, I always thought that transit Pluto at 12Sag conjunct US natal Ascendant (the nation itself) on 9/11/01 meant that the US government was the more powerful actor in the Saturn-Pluto opposition (with tr Saturn conjunct US natal Descendant of Partnership, Others, and Open Enemies.) So with the above info factoring in the 'major corporations', including big banks (that remain 'too big to fail' especially since tax payers were forced to bail them out against our good judgment), it seems to me to indicate underworld Pluto representing the wealthy actors with riches hidden in secret places, and Saturn, planet of government, law, and business, as the old order they were determined to collapse by way of a "new Pearl Harbor".

And some if not all big banks are said to be launderers of drug money with Scorpionic Pluto a master at drug trafficking, as you know, for it has supplied a large part of his wealth for centuries.

Yes, The Tower card in the Tarot (#16) comes handily to mind as does the Pre-Natal Eclipse Saros Series of George W. Bush, the 2 New North, which manifested prior to his birth and again prior to the 2000 presidential 'election' (or, selection, if you prefer.) The theme of the 2 New North happens to be: 'a sudden collapse of plans or lifestyle; confusion may reign; the long term effects are of rebuilding and transformation after the dust has settled; the reshaping will have far-reaching effects; a person's direction is changed through the sudden collapse of an existing structure' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology, my italics.)

Perhaps you agree that it wasn't only people's lives including Bush's and the Twin Towers that changed on 9/11 but the 'existing structure' that was transformed was the United States of America via subsequent wars fought on credit card, the US 'Patriot' Act, and the cluster f**k they call (in Germanic fashion), Homeland 'Security'. And remember how propagandists touted the inability of spy agencies to "connect the dots" before 9/11? Knitting the agencies together was part of the plan as well yet even now they still use whenever needed their lack of dot-connecting as an excuse for failure.

And of course, 9/11/01 rippled directly toward the Bush-Cheney Heist of December 2008 when they cleaned us out before leaving the White House. You know they did.

Okay, I'll hush for now especially since I know that no reader, regular or otherwise, will take a minute to leave even a smidgeon of a comment underneath this post!

If you get a chance, you may wish to visit Forbidden Knowledge TV for more videos on various topics--and pass them around for awareness is key.

August 18 2013: Jupiter Returns to 9/11/01 natal position

In consideration of the current terrorist 'chatter' being reported by the US government, this post is merely a heads-up about my just-published article at Jude's Threshold where I have taken a peek at Jupiter's Return to natal position in the 9/11/01 horoscope in case you're interested.

Planet Jupiter, exalted in Cancer, is very prominent this year as noted by master astrologer John Townley so I hope you'll check out his website's excellent Astrology and the News section (updated daily), plus, don't miss John's in-depth articles concerning a variety of astrological topics!

Final Interview w filmmaker Aaron Russo (video)

As the dust settles from last evening's VP debate (and I trust you enjoyed the bickering the Oct 11 debate's horoscope predicted would break out!), here's an interesting video with filmmaker Aaron Russo concerning the fakery of the 9/11 attacks and several other topics--see what you think!

No time to watch the video? Then how about this curiosity: Aaron Russo and Nick Rockefeller were friends and apparently Mr. Rockefeller at some point revealed the elite agenda to Mr. Russo!

Thanks to Forbidden Knowledge TV for the heads-up on this video.

History Today on the Origins of Islam

Exploring the Origins of Islam

As you know, on 9/11/01, transiting Neptune was at its Origin of Islam degree (6AQ+, a Neptune Return) and conjoined America's natal South Node, a karmic synchronicity with a Saturnian undertone of loss, separation, and Neptunian intrigue and showing a basic disharmony in the spiritual realm between Eastern and Western cultures.

Remember after the attacks of 9/11 how spiritual many Americans became? TV ads became more...sensitive. How sad that the improvements haven't lasted better than they have as our old materialism has again asserted itself as Wall Street's greed and a morally corrupt system remind us each day. Actually, America's natal horoscope (Sibly: 5:10 pm LMT) shows Saturn (10th H) and Neptune (9th H) flanking Midheaven (The Goal) = wavering between materialism and idealism. (Ebertin.)

So here's an article from the excellent History Today which explores whether the roots of ancient Islam may be explored and better understood in much the way Christianity has always been and I hope you'll check it out!

Julian Assange accepts major Journalism award (video) w the Jupiter-Saturn cycle

Monday November 28, 2011: Awards, Lies, Pies, and Turkeys

by Jude Cowell

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, as I enjoyed a slice of pumpkin pie with family, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange accepted a major Australian award, the Walkley Award, for "Outstanding Contribution to Journalism.

The Walkley Award is equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize in America, and to this common gooder who'd like America to act more uprightly than the imperial dictatorship our government has become, Mr. Assange deserved a prize for revealing us to ourselves in spite of 24/7 government propaganda. It must be obvious to a majority of Americans circa 2011 that "exporting" our brand of "democracy" is a sham with tragic consequences, not the least of which is the bankrupting of the United States and the dissolution of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, an ongoing project for self-serving oligarchs, plutocrats, and despots who have Global Governance on their reptilian minds.

As you know, in 2011 many uprisings of The People have gone viral across the globe at the opposition phase of the Jupiter/Saturn cycle which began with their conjunction on May 28, 2000. Its Sabian Symbol pertains to the bankster/Wall Street/mortgage frauds that crashed the US and world economies in 2007/08:

Jupiter/Saturn @23 Taurus = "A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Gems."

Well, you've noticed that most of those 'gems' are now in someone else's coffers and not ours as trillions of dollars and mounds of gold were spirited out of the US through corporate bailouts and sent to foreign entities in similar fashion as was done in WWII to fund Hitler's war efforts and to boost the wealth of the House of Rothschild and its agents, many of whom were--and are--Washington DC officials (officials in theory if not in practice--not playing on our team.)

The '23Tau' symbol's association with wealth and thievery--and in America's case, with extreme income inequality--implies that its forward trajectory at opposition 2011 relates directly to the We Are The 99% Movement, or Occupy Wall Street, if you prefer, and to global uprisings of the fed-up.

Taurus is a practical, often materialistic earth sign with greed, possessiveness, and intolerance the shadow aide of this money sign; environmental issues apply as well to Taurus, sign of the Gardener, the Architect, and the Bull--and bullishness--of Wall Street.

We might even take the economic view that today's financial problems and the deleveraging being perpetrated against the populace is described by Saturnian demand being lower than Jupiter's supply. However, Jupiter now retrograde will eventually turn direct and move forward through the 30 degrees of Taurus and into lighter, Airy Gemini (communications) while Saturn's predictable entry into the sign of Big Business--the weighty Mars-Pluto-ruled Scorpio--is an entire post for another day. (Updated 11.28.11 @ 10 pm est.)

For Assange's updated views on the US government's behavior toward him for exposing Washington's lies and illegalities, view his video acceptance speech at Democracy Now! which includes remarks from Glenn Greenwald, or you may wish to read Mr. Greenwald's column at

Plus, there's a Jupiter/Saturn flavor to the natal chart of Julian Assange, if you're interested in his quirky, willful Sun/Uranus personality which supports Technology interests and talents bwo Uranus' co-rulership of futuristic, computer-loving Aquarius. Even the glyph for Aquarius favors a 'www' as in, Worldwide Web.

In Mundane Astrology, Jupiter and Saturn are used to represent the Republican and Democratic parties but that's outside the scope of today's post.

Jupiter Opposite Saturn, the Halfway Mark in Their 20-Year Cycle

Now what of the opposition phase between our two societal planets, Jupiter (expansion; growth; generosity) and Saturn (contraction; restriction; austerity)?

Oppositions between any planets are awareness-relationship aspects of culmination or fulfillment, and the May 2000 conjunction heralded the New Millennium, the Bush-Cheney coup of the presidency, and the attacks of 9/11 which have made thievery, coups/topplings, and bankruptcy much easier for globalists to accomplish along with changing America almost beyond recognition. The US Congress has purposefully added to its own toothlessness by traitorous actions of may kinds, and by negating its constitutionally granted oversight function.

Now in the Jupiter-Saturn cycle, the first ten years (ex: 2000-2010) are intense and describe a sort of winding up that peaks at opposition. The last ten years
(2010-2020) indicate a winding down of this intensity, and to a slowing of the pace and overall direction so visible in the earlier stages.

The current opposition is also a transit of Jupiter opposing US natal Saturn 14Lib48, a time when progress and growth are blocked or restricted; promising situations may tempt us to circumvent rules and regulations but this is ill-advised. Hold on to what you've got is the usual advice for this transit and that's just what we're seeing from the wealthiest members of the 1% as they try to hold on to what they've got without contributing to society--even if it's ill-gotten gains that rightly belong to others.

With the fed-up flavor of the Occupy Movement (and movements elsewhere but this blog is mainly about American vermin and DC politics), we're seeing a Jupiter-Saturn opposition tendency toward exhaustion since the rapidity of expansion has been so quick-paced that it's impossible to sustain--we now have a need to assimilate and reflect upon these financial and societal issues, a need that 2011's uprisings are facilitating on behalf of the collective good.

Given the post-traumatic stress syndrome caused by 9/11 and its handmaiden, Financial Collapse 2008, we now deal at the opposition with the Taurean realms of luxury, comfort, and security as the 99% demand fairness from the greedy 1%.

The Jupiter-Saturn combo of energies may also refer to diplomacy, perseverance, discontent, tenacious pursuit of plans, philosophical thinking, unsettled lives full of many changes, emotional tension, attainment of far-reaching objectives, a 'making it happen' strategy; industry, law professors, clergymen, civil servants, politicians, and government officials of the administration. (Ebertin.)

And Michael Munkasey gives Jupiter-Saturn potentials in Business and Politics as: checks and balances; changes in government, religious, and social orders; repression based on morality instituted by law or religion; too many restrictions on the operation of justice (ex: Wall Street CEOs not held accountable for crimes--jc); a judicial system at its breaking point (yep---jc); leniency and harshness vie for balance within the overall social and economic systems.
Yes, fatigue from war and want are certain to ramp up as calls for improvement in the global economy continue during the next ten years until the Jupiter-Saturn cycle begins again @ 00AQ29 on December 21, 2020, a key year in American and World history. The 2020 Great Conjunction perfects only once--in Air and conjoining the US Inaugural Sun of January 20th, assuming that America still elects presidents by then (it's not for certain.)

So let's stop discussing political turkeys for now and close with the midpoint picture created in 2020 by the planetary synchronicity of the transiting Jupiter-Saturn midpoint which directly affects the US presidency (Sun @ 00AQ+ since FDR's 1937 inauguration when the switch was made); any, all, or none may apply...

Jupiter-Saturn = Sun (the leader): inconstancy; gaining experience; changes of residence; feeling that you can positively influence social change; boasting a lot; increased self-pride and greater ability to demonstrate positive leadership before others; dreaming of the potential for actuality (of a NWO? jc); taking destiny into one's own hands; major changes according to plan, or, if nothing is prepared, becoming gripped by the status quo and having to make the best of things.

'10,000 Famous Freemasons' has many names you'll recognize

Sometimes here on Stars Over Washington I add links to very interesting tidbits in this blog's sidebar without shouting out their addition in a post.

However, the 10th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/01 has inspired me to post a link to a site which has a digital copy of a 1957 book by William R. Denslow entitled 10,000 Famous Freemasons and telling you about it.

So even if you don't care to peruse the alphabetized list for names of famous politicians, presidents, Supreme Court Justices, Kings, Queens, and other notables, you may wish to check out the book's Foreward written by none other than one of our many Freemason presidents, Harry S. Truman.

Plus, if you dare to click you'll be greeted with an image displaying several signatures (autographs!) of folks such as Benjamin Franklin,
John Hancock, and others whose names you'll recognize--some may surprise you!

But this is dusty old stuff, eh?

As with a District of Columbia studded with tomb-like buildings constructed on principles of Sacred Geometry (thanks to our Great Mathematician!)--the Capitol Building in Washington comes first to mind--this list of 10,000 names is a good resource for those investigating History yet who wish to unearth deeper informational layers rather than accepting the veneer that most historians tend to toss over their narratives. The more superficial tossing makes true understanding of past events, both consequences and causes, difficult if not impossible to determine though many researchers continually try.

Yes, names of past Masons are fairly easy to discover, even for the merely curious. But a list of our modern day crop of them now serving in Washington DC tends to be shrouded in secrecy from the average sleuth, and reporters seldom mention such hidden, overarching affiliations (which a percentage of journalists take oaths to as well.)

Well, given the destructive wind that a hijacked America has been heading into (probably timed by the take-over of the US government by The Federal Reserve Bank, circa 1913), I'd hide my name, too, if I were a member of a secret society that was itself hijacked centuries ago by an Illuminati determined to gain total world control, with America acting as its military branch.

So are you able-bodied and unemployed for long? Guess you're tempted to join the US military, a very successful Employment Program the US government promotes in films, tv shows, in games, schools, and more--wherever the propaganda boot fits, our young people are expected to wear it.

Check out Source Code for a not-so-subtle hint: serve your country even after death! This film (which I did like, btw) manages to tout military service and the fear of terrorism occurring on US soil simultaneously.

Bravo!...I guess...

Concerning One of Those 10,000 Freemasons

So whose bio was I researching when I came upon the book? That of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, hero of the American Revolution, Freemason (he's on the list of 10,000), and bosom buddy of Thomas Jefferson, Freemason and Illuminati agent.

You remember that it was master engineer Kosciuszko who bolstered our forts during the American Revolution and it was his plans that were sold to the British by Benedict Arnold.

On the topic of America's reputed 'turning' from a higher course to a lower one of perpetual war, I sometimes I wonder: did the attacks of 9/11 mark a symbolic switch of America's Great Seal from obverse to the reverse side with its (Illuminati) Eye of Surveillance on top the 13-step pyramid or power?

Related posts include Signposts on the NWO Highway and here's a post detailing the collapse of Lehman Brothers--in 1984--and the list of which organizations sit on each rung of the 13-Step Pyramid of Power.

'13' is a big number in occultism, as you know. Our original 13 colonies, 13 steps of power, the 13th Amendment, Ophiuchus the 13th constellation, etc. And yes, I now sit typing from within the 13th Colony of Georgia. And you know that the number '13' is said to be a signature of the Illuminati and Freemasonry, right?

Meanwhile there may be a ray of illumination to be found in the Sabian Symbol for the '14 Sagittarius' degree because of its word picture:

"The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx" (Dane Rudhyar.)

"Keynote: The enduring power of occult knowledge and of its quasi-divine Custodians, "Seed-men" of a previous cycle of existence.

The belief in an Original Tradition based on the perfect knowledge of the archetypal principles and forms which underlie all manifestations of life on earth (and by extension in the cosmos) is deeply rooted in man's consciousness. The Great Pyramid and the Sphinx are witnesses to such a Tradition, especially for the Western world. The symbol implies that such an archetypal knowledge remains the foundation upon which men's minds can still build solid and valid formulations, as new evolutionary developments are pending."

Essentially, this "points to the greatness of a Soul's past achievements and the value of trying to reevoke this past. What is revealed in THE POWER OF SPIRITUAL ANCESTRY." (all DR, his emphases, from An Astrological Mandala.)

Ancestry? Ancestor and hero worship?

Well, with 'The Sphinx' we know as Thomas Jefferson intimately involved in the founding of this nation and his cosmic studies well known (if not his secret society connections), the centuries-long campaign which the US government has maintained to make certain that Mr. Jefferson remains for posterity a "quasi-divine" "Seed-man" (and a secretive holder of occult--hidden--knowledge such as the Bruton Vault info which he apparently suppressed), it may be easier to understand the degree's Egyptian flavor in light of the Sabian Symbol's babylonish implications.

Plus, the architecture of the Jefferson Memorial has that certain dusty musty Masonic look about it, don't you agree?


Blog Notes: you may wish to check this blog's sidebar for other links to Freemason and presidential info (such as both Roosevelts), the Illuminati, Thomas Jefferson, etc., or type a few words into the Search Bar provided by Google. Of course, then Google will make googley eyes at you from atop the pyramid of their power...

And Blogger for the second day in a row is 'disappearing' parts of my post as I type/save so hopefully all of this effort will publiah with its links and text intact. jc


Update 9.12.11 7:46 pm edt: did you know that George Washington's Inaugural throne (April 30, 1789 Federal Hall on Wall Street, NYC) was decorated with a Rising Sun symbol? Or should I say 'is' decorated? Wonder who sits upon the booger now for its seems the Sun is setting.

Reminds me of the Sabian Symbol for '16 Aries'..."Brownies Dancing in the Setting Sun"...which isn't as bad as it first sounds if we-the-people believe there's a better way than that of the Jackassians of Washington DC:


positive expression: simple good fortune together with unlimited opportunity as the direct fruitage of effort;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: delusions of adequacy with a complete inability to act in real self-interest.
(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones; except for the 'unconscious/shadow side' part--I added that.)

Our frustration is no excuse for inaction! jc

Kucinich: US actions in Libya "surreal" 6.24.11 (video)

Here's the video I mentioned earlier today of Rep. Dennis Kucinich speaking on the House floor this morning and calling the US misadventure in Libya "surreal," among other things.

Well, you know Mr. Kucinich is correct, don't you? And he doesn't mind calling a situation 'Orwellian' that really is Orwellian.

Wonder what happened to Mr. Kucinich's plan in 2008 to investigate those mysteriously executed and very lucrative "put options" which suggested insider trading involved in the attacks of 9/11?

Keith Olbermann on Labor Unions in America (video) current tv

The birth of the Labor Movement in America is marked indelibly by a horrendous and sad event: the Haymarket Fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, Manhattan NY 1911 when many people jumped to their deaths on the pavements of New York City, many of them with clothes and hair flaming. Most were young people, the majority of them young ladies. Immigrants were prominent in number though not prominent in the least by social or financial status.

If it sounds familiar, perhaps it was meant to...

The Tower card ~16~

As with the attacks of 9/11/01, the horrible scene in 1911 echoes and is echoed archetypally by The Tower card in the Tarot deck and you know the image: disaster has struck and old, false values suddenly lose their justification and persuasion; people jump from the only windows they can find as terror and chaos are set loose.

Cold reality must be faced even if grim - but as our unbalanced world demands, the coldness is most often faced by some much more deeply and harmfully than by others.

The Tower (like the Tower of Babel, mankind's first attempt at establishing Corporatism - and even a New World Order) is, like the Egyptian-looking symbolism on US money, based on a pyramid of power, so Ponzi-esque by form and function that seeds of its future collapse are ingrained in its DNA, at its very beginning or core. Of course by natural law we earthlings understand that everything that has a beginning has an ending in this dualistic world of temporary maya (illusion.)

And with this, the system or language of Astrology agrees. (Ex: nothing can transpire in transits or progressions without its first being promised in the natal horoscope - at birth; the realm and scale of events and our reactions to them may be molded or amended by conscious choice; aka, free will.)

Obsessed and Compulsed in The City

An obsessive drive toward Success makes necessary that a detached few at the tip top (capstone) secluded upon The Mountain (Pinnacle of Success) contend with hordes of oppressed masses discarded at bottom who are the serfs and pawns scattered across the globe. The masses (Neptune) are aka, The Collective; or, Modern Humanity. Or they are more rightly called, you and me. The select few power elite are of the clan of man, too, though they like to pretend otherwise with their daintily pretty minds a la Barbara Bush.

Yet no human being exists outside the law of karma: we reap what we sow. Though they won't be, the elites should be worried about fate considering the anti-social, psychopathic trash they put out upon the earthly plane, so much of it based on lies and innuendo.

Keith Olbermann on Video March 2011

As Mr. Olbermann reminds us in this March 2011 speech delivered to his alma mater Cornell University, the 168 victims in NYC did not actually die from the fire but from a major barrier put in place by management.

They died because the factory doors were chained shut to keep out
labor union organizers who'd been coming around, wanting to improve working conditions that bordered on barbarism (the province of Pluto/Chiron's plutocracy, imperialism, corporatism, primal violence, etc.) Some would say conditions set by factory owners left the realm of gentility long before and I must suppose that this is true. Many of the women who died in the Haymarket Fire had been part of protests recently mounted which won the approval of much of the public.

The street protesters showed - and publicized - the factory owners in a bad light. So before too long, the workers and their dreams hit the very same NY pavements in a very different way. And not to rise or protest ever again.

A determined rush toward wealth and power seems indicated on the part of the manufacturing class as revealed in this criminally inspired sabotage and mass murder. The one who lit the match seems never to have been publicly identified though a cigarette circle taking a break upstairs has been mentioned. An owner may have been part of the match-or-cig-tossing group, one who could easily have calculated the risks before committing arson.

Did they think or assume arrogantly that the factory's locked doors would remain shrouded, an unknown bit of evidence during the trial? (I'd be interested in scanning over a transcript for I have questions.)

In spite of, or because of, the Progressive Movement in the first decade of the 1900s producing social improvements (after conditions had been really neglected for decades with workers treated little better than animals), such actions as setting a convenient fire to ruin one's business establishment (possibly for insurance pay-outs) is not as far-fetched as we'd prefer it to appear.

Click if you wish to read my consideration of the horoscope of the Triangle Factory Fire of March 25, 1911 (chart not shown.)

And yes, there is a major correlation - a resonance - between the 1911 fire and the chart of WTC 9/11/01. We already know that the location is basically the same (Manhattan) so reviewing the natal chart for Manhattan (Feb 12, 1653 12:00 pm LMT Manhattan NY); ASC 15Gem28 with Pluto 12Gem05 Rx rising; 8th cusp 7Cap00, the spot in the Zodiac where wealthy saboteur Pluto now lurks, poised before entering the 8th house of Shared Resources, Big Business, and Corporatism.

Bascially, I'd say that in 1911, profit margins were king and social climbing was Queen. The TRiangle Factory Fire happened 100 years ago and its affects still echo through the decades to our ears now highly sensitized by the events of 9/11.

And when we subtract 1911 (Haymarket Fire) and from 9/11's 2001, we find that the two events occurred 90 years apart which represents a square aspect (1 year = 1 degree; 90 x 4 = 360 degrees of the Zodiac-circle.) Squares = obstacles and blockages, associated with the numbers 4, 8, 16, 32, etc, and relates to the physical plane (The Cross of Matter); the psychological and intuitional planes are also involved due to life's complexities expressed on various levels of existence.

So both events share a theme in common: removing obstacles and blockages by force so that a way ahead is cleared for a new beginning. Just like new growth that sprouts after the dust clears from the ruins of The Tower.

Here's a link where you can watch the video or read the transcript of Keith Olbermann speaking in March 2011 at Cornell University (part 2 of 3): America and labor..., or simply hang out at Stars Over Washington long enough to watch Part 2 of Keith's remarks right here if the video ever displays properly. Which at the moment it is not doing but I'll leave the code here until tomorrow, just in case:

WikiLeaks' 9/11 bombshell (video)

No time ('s almost 1:00 am!) to view all of this video from the February 2, 2011 edition of the Alex Jones Show before posting but I thought you might want to join me tomorrow which is when I'll have a chance to watch it all.

Let me know what you think if you have a chance.

WikiLeaks and Winter Solstice 2010's Mercury Return Jan 9, 2011

With the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act now signed by President Obama (while still vacationing in Hawaii), the 112th Congress scheduled to open January 5, 2011 at noon est, and myself just returned from a holiday family spree (if you can call the Atlanta area a 'spree' zone), Stars Over Washington's Julian Assange/treason poll is now closed.

Out of a total of 131 responders, 77% (101) voted, "No! He's doing the world a favor" to the question of whether Mr. Assange (who, though not an American citizen, has greatly embarrassed the US government) should be tried for treason.

1% (14) answered a moderate "Possibly, depending" while another 1% replied, "Absolutely!"

What might this unofficial poll attest to, if anything? Possibilities include:

That folks who read this sort of populist blog prefer that the US government follow its own laws (and not rewrite them for special occasions or in an attempt to save face), get over thinking it can lord it over anyone anywhere, and busy itself learning how to successfully keep official secrets closer to Big Brother's chest than heretofore.

Now if you, dear reader, are one of the 77% who voted No! to a treason prosecution yet don't agree with my personal assessment of the situation, please leave a comment here, if you wish to weigh in.

Oh, and I can think of at least one more very good reason - as taught by history - for the US government not to prosecute the message bearer who dares reveal the truth:

"First they came..." for him - then they came for you and me...


Now for the title of this post: the Mercury Return 25Sag25 to the Winter Solstice 2010 chart of December 21 which occurs on January 9, 2011 at 1:33:17 am est in Washington DC. This reflects a part of Mercury the Messenger's retrograde period which began on Dec 10, 2010 @ 5Cap+ with the speedy one's Direct Station on Dec 30, 2010 @ 19Sag35.

As far as conjunctions or oppositions to Julian Assange's natal chart (July 3, 1971 Townsville, AU 4:57 pm AEST), the Winter Solstice 2010's Mercury Return falls in his natal 2nd house opposite n Venus 25Gem25 (dualistic and sometimes duplicitous Gemini, sign of communications, and The Good News.) Yet the house position may be only speculative, based on whether his birth hour is accurate; it apparently has been snagged from his official birth records. (Kudos to whoever snagged it!)

Another possible link is to Assange's natal Moon/NN midpoint which will be conjoined by Mercury 25Sag25 on Jan 9, 2011, and in Politics and Business, the publicity-infused Moon/NN combo relates to: trade, ports of entry, roadways, canals, transit systems, etc. Also to: common people involved in the conduct of foreign trade, public opinion about foreign trade, agricultural failures, or blockages at ports of entry. (Munkasey.)

Here is the midpoint picture formed by tr Mercury to Assange's natal Moon/NN on or around Jan 9, 2011; any, all, or none may apply:

n Moon/NN = tr Mercury: adapting to events and communicating effectively; education opens opportunities; emotional group discussions; an association of convenience; contacts with females; immune system (as in 'cyber-security? jc); a critical attitude toward associations; building cooperation. (Munkasey; Ebertin; Tyl.)

2010's Winter Solstice chart itself must be considered for understanding any effect its Mercury Return may have collectively, such as what houses are ruled by Mercury (3rd h, and 12th h of Politics); aspects to Mercury are important as well.

Winter Solstice December 21, 2010's Mercury

Mercury applies in its Rx condition to a square with the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Pisces. Merc SQs Jupiter (0A05, a very tight orb) while separating from its SQ with Uranus (1S22); the Messenger also moves away from conjunction with the Sun 00Cap00, both in 6th house of Work, Health, Service (Armed Forces) - the President has signed the 9/11 Health and Compensation bill, as noted above, and leaks have concerned the US military services and the US State Department of, diplomats. Mercury = the signing and the bill itself.

Merc SQ Jupiter shows discrepancies between beliefs and the truth with impulsivity in judgments which are based on insufficient information; accepting responsibility for one's actions is difficult; the phrase 'pathological liar' is a potential.

Merc SQ Uranus indicates an eccentric thinker whose opinions tend to be at odds with society's prevailing beliefs. Most people find this 'rebel with a cause' obnoxious or overly belligerent. Impatience may cause 'facts' or 'truths' to be manufactured.

(This may apply, of course, to WikiLeaks or to the US government - or both.)

Now you've probably noticed that Mercury 25Sag15 inconjuncts US natal Mercury, an aspect of great strain, for watery Cancer and fiery Sagittarius have little natural sympathy for one another. The inconjunct (or, quincunx; 150 degr) suggests the dynamics of Mars which brings in the god of war's typical aggression, aggravations, and threats and yet compromise is the only solution. (This aspects relates to Congress as well, but here I'm looking at Jan 9, 2011's Mercury Return mainly in relation to the Assange/WikiLeaks imbroglio.)

One aspect of note is the interesting inconjunct between Mercury in the Winter Solstice 2010 chart and the chart's Ascendant 24Can21 (the position of US natal Mercury Rx 24:12) with Mercury inconj ASC indicating evaluations and conclusions about others which are correct but make them feel uncomfortable and embarrassed.

Well, yes. We know.

Merc inconj ASC may also describe someone who is a "Jack of All Trades" with Mercury associated with trade and commerce, as noted above. A bit of a roustabout, perhaps? This Mercury is very much aware of the power of money, and may long nostalgically for simpler times.

Mercury Return to the Winter Solstice 2010 chart: Jan 9, 2011

In Jan 9's Mercury Return chart set for DC, there is a politically prominent trio: Mercury 25Sag25 in 2nd house of Values and Valuations, North Node 2Cap38, (3rd cusp = 2Cap41), and Pluto 5Cap38 in 3rd house of Communications. Pluto conjoins the degree of Mercury's Rx Station of Dec 10, 2010, a time when hidden meanings are revealed.

As you know, the Mercury/Pluto duo relates to propaganda, persuasion, deep thoughts, business secrets (ex: B of A), spies, surveillance and Intel agencies, communications satellites, and the drug trade; the two planets oppose one another across the Can/Cap axis in America's natal chart with Mercury Rx @ the "A Leader of Men Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power" degree (the meaning of which then relates, of course, to powerfully wealthy, often invisible Pluto, the Spy, Saboteur, Assassin, and/or Underworld Criminal Network - and to the Bosses thereof.)

Mercury/Pluto = NN: contacts with those who help you obtain information or news(!); a desire for intellectual domination, or, to be a spokesman; contacts with powerful criminal elements; being recognized for one's persuasion or communication skills.

Now this particular phase of 'Mercury action' @ 25SAg25 actually began prior to the Winter Solstice of Dec 21, 2010: Nov 26, 2010, Dec 21, 2010 (Rx), and next on January 9, 2011. Given Mr. Assange's clear connection to mercurial functions, it may be interesting to note any further developments in the legal standing of the WikiLeaks' now-secluded founder who must try his best not to be extradited to face charges in the USA.
