A Villain in History: Jefferson Davis

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

Known historically as a villain to many, yet a hero to others, the natal horoscope of Jefferson Davis, former president of The Confederacy (noon horoscope shown), played multiple roles during his lifetime including military leader, congressman, prisoner of war, secessionist from the Union.

Born in Fairview, Kentucky on June 3, 1808 with Sun in mid-Gemini, and Moon in either Virgo or Libra, no definite birth hour is known for Davis, although Penfield has speculated 6:30 am LMT with the tribal sign of Cancer rising and his Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction in Pisces at Midheaven, with Pisces a military sign. 6:30 am is the timing I've chosen to calculate the natal horoscope of Jefferson Davis, shown below.

A Personality Blend Spot-Check for Mr. Davis

Having no known hour of birth for Jefferson Davis, there are two positions of the Moon to consider. On his day of birth, the Sun ranged from 12Gem24 to 13Gem21, while Luna ranged from 28Vir27 to 12Lib47.

An Air-Earth Sun Gemini-Moon Virgo blend of practical idealism suggests 'divine discontent, nervousness, and intellectual aspirations'. The blend's prominent "Image for Integration: Gaugin's Arearea." Meanwhile, a double Air Sun Gemini-Moon Libra blend suggests a fellow of spontaneity, tact, diplomacy, restlessness, and legal and/or political work. Independence as a birthright is a feature of double Air personalities. This blend's prominent "Image for Integration: A shuttle diplomat brings together warring factions." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey #ad).

Jefferson Davis: 1808--1889

Helpfully, history has recorded the date and hour of Davis' passing so his "death chart" surrounds his natal horoscope in the bi-wheel configuration, as you can see, below, in both marked and unmarked form.

For such a controversial historical figure, naturally there are many books written and video presentations available concerning the life and times of Jefferson Davis, and if you have an hour or so to spare, I recommend one by The People Profiles channel Jefferson Davis - The Civil War and The Confederate States of America.

Bi-Wheel Jefferson F. Davis natal horoscope set for 6:30 am LMT (inner) and his Death Horoscope of December 6, 1889 12:45 am New Orleans, Louisiana (outer); as you see, an emphasis on Air sign Gemini is apparent with his death caused by "bronchitis complicated by malaria" which adds a Mars-Neptune signature of epidemics, infections, and undermined vitality; other biological correspondences (R. Ebertin) are penned on the chart, and Jupiter in Capricorn is Angular within his 6:30 am chart, a common feature at times of death. Also significant to the speculative 6:30 am natal chart is that Davis' "Death PE" (18 North Solar Eclipse @6Can47) manifested upon the 7 Cancer Ascendant with potentials for "illness; overtaxing of strength, and/or obsessive thinking" (B. Brady).

And here is the very same bi-wheel with no study notes penned on at all:

In closing, and in sensibility of our current crop of secessionsts spurred on and funded by foreign and domestic entities determined to topple our country, here's a link to a re-enactment of Abraham Lincoln's famous A House Divided Speech of June 16, 1858, Capitol Building, Springfield, Illinois. For as you know, such division, purposefully engineered, is precisely what America's enemies are counting on.

2019--2020 Transits to Republican Party planets

Donald Trump Points Up Toward the Cosmos

During the Civil War, The Election of 1864 was "A Different kind of Election" during which Abraham Lincoln won his second term with 55% of the popular vote. The National Union Party, as the Republican Party was temporarily called at that time, counted Mr. Lincoln as a member.

Now with all the turmoil in America and the Republican Party in a bright spotlight we may wish to search for any major planetary transits to the Republican Party Horoscope. Thing is, there are at least two such horoscopes in circulation (that I know of!) yet with both set for 1854, we can be assured that the transits are in progress of affecting the party and its members with the main difference being one of timing of the transits' exactitude.

There are two Republican Party horoscopes in my files: March 20, 1854 6:30 pm LMT (Sun 00Ari05 conjunct Mercury Rx 5Ari18; Moon 20Sag27) Ripon, Wisconsin, and July 6, 1854 5:00 pm LMT (Sun 14Can27 Mercury 10Leo05; Moon 28Sco00 ) Ripon, Wisconsin. Either chart may be set for other hours depending on the choices made by various astrologers. (Note that no Angles or cusps are included or considered in the following.)

Current Transits of Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus

The 2019--2020 transiting planets I'm noting today are the exact Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of January 12, 2020 @22Cap46 (noon est) which 'hits' the natal Jupiters in both charts: March 20 Jupiter @22Cap59 and July 6 Jupiter Rx @23Cap52--with both Jupiters 2 to 5 degrees from Chiron in Capricorn (Chiron Rx on July 6, 1854), and transit Uranus on January 12, 2020 @2Tau39.

Now as I type (December 16, 2019 12:45 est Raleigh NC) transit Saturn @19Cap58 and tr Pluto @21Cap53--both moving in direct motion--are aligning for their big meeting on January 12, 2020 @22Cap46 (conjunct Trump's natal vertex!) and to me it seems their energies are already affecting the Republican Party via its Jupiter and its Uranus (@1Tau30 on March 20, 1854 and 3Tau48 on July 6, 1854). Let's list them as separate transits:

2019-2020 Saturn conjunct 1854 Jupiter denotes a period of serious spiritual and economic concerns and possible restrictions in these realms; if prosperous it's time to share and to give back, plus, divergence from or breaking of rules, laws, and traditions leads to limitation, frustration, and delay.

2019--2020 Pluto conjunct 1854 Jupiter indicates a time when greater power and influence is sought in the political and financial realms (which may or may not succeed); total honesty is required for best results, exaggeration and misrepresentation can backfire, and social and/or religious reforms may inspire fanaticism and intolerance.

2019--2020 Uranus conjunct 1854 Pluto (@1Tau30 on March 20 and 3Tau35 on July 6, 1854) tends to bring abrupt shifts and changes in society and serious psychological adjustments that are necessary and may trigger hidden fears and complexes that are difficult to directly and honestly confront. And as you know, Uranus-Pluto energies combined suggests potentials for: riots, revolutions, protests, upheavals that bring changes in government, upsets, unrest, violent acts, subversive activities, the enforcement of decisions, the process of transformation, and 'collapse of the old order, construction of the new' (Ebertin). To Uranus-Pluto Michael Munkasey adds, "sudden new criminal acts." We see these every day!

Jupiter Expands What He Touches

In closing, we may also wish to consider the midpoint of harsh Saturn-Pluto with 1854 Jupiter as apex of a midpoint picture with potentials for: religious and social fanaticism, sacrifice, difficulties caused by illness (Ebertin); trouble with authority, trying to save what's left, staying out of trouble, adoption of the austere (Tyl); and/or, people with leadership and power to dispense (Munkasey).

Well, there's my spot check on the cosmic condition of the Republican Party (aka, the Trump Party) in our current day. If this post seems helpful or revealing at all perhaps you'll Share and discuss the topic among yourselves!

Are the Rothschilds Behind Assassinations of USA Presidents? - video

Is this Memorial Day Weekend a good time to post what some may consider to be a controversial video presentation? Wars are begun by big bankers like the House of Rothschild. Massive government debt is used to finance such wars and create mega-profits for warmongers in houses of finance. Patriotic citizens are pawns in the war racket. So another Memorial Day is here and while you may disagree, it seems to me that honoring our soldiers and their families includes telling the truth about the corporatists who use them, then can hardly be bothered to fulfill the government's promises of top-tier medical care once the troops return home due to an underfunded, antiquated Veterans Administration full of scandals and fraud.

Therefore, prior to the September 1, 2016 Solar Eclipse at 9Virgo21 with its themes of 'realism; constructively tackling the truth; seeing an old situation for what it really is', here is a video for American patriots who choose to take a more realistic look at those behind the assassins who pull the triggers so that central banking can be forced into "law." For as we know, in America, since 1913/14 certain bankers and their fellow conspirators have issued US currency which is against the US Constitution and the duties of the US Congress:

From behind the shadows of a darkened Moon, here is The Fed's New Moon of 1910 (tap or click for details; horoscope shown, below) which perfected during their secretive planning session on Jekyll Island, Georgia to surreptitiously work on "the Aldrich Plan" which led to the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, thus adding our nation finally to the octopus that is the corrupt global banking system.

Enlarge to read notes such as the YOD pattern denoting a 'special task, crisis, and/or turning point' they addressed under the tutelage of German banker Paul Warburg who obviously felt not a shred of allegiance to the United States of America.

Abraham Lincoln's Greatest Speech: The 2nd Inaugural Address (2002 video)

Have you 58 minutes to devote to a presentation of Abraham Lincoln's second Inauguration Address delivered on March 4, 1965? The president's future assassin and the co-conspirators were in the throng that day and listening to his lofty words but being bent on revenge, nursing grudges due to Union war atrocities, and holding a deep hatred toward him for signing the Emancipation Proclamation, the men were ill disposed to appreciate the message in Lincoln's sentiments upon that historic day:

So What Killed General Stonewall Jackson?

According to a surgeon's recent review of his Civil War medical records, the third most prevalent reason for death during the war was the cause of Confederate General Stonewall Jackson's demise after 'friendly fire' had felled him as he returned from scouting enemy lines on the night of May 2, 1863.

May 2, 2013 was the 150th anniversary of General Jackson's death.

Ben Franklin on "a prime cause of the Revolution"

"The refusal of King George III to allow the Colonies to operate an honest money system which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the Revolution."

Benjamin Franklin

And with the early establishment of an English financial system of banks in America, Thomas Jefferson thought that Alexander Hamilton "cooked the books."

So other than book-cooking from the start, things have remained the same--murky--through the ensuing decades, haven't they? In fact, the US government is a corporation, not a government! If they had to prove themselves a government, they couldn't do so.

Here's a 43-minute video presentation, All Wars Are Bankers' Wars:

The post includes a link to President Jackson's First Inaugural Address which sadly remains quite pertinent to the purposefully manufactured financial crises of our day.

Horoscope: Lincoln's Gettysburg Address (updated Dec 5, 2014)

President Abraham Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address on the afternoon of November 19, 1863 on the ceremonial occasion of the reburial of Union soldiers, and approximately 4 1/2 months after the Battle of Gettysburg had been fought.

Asked to make a 'few remarks', and feeling ill with headache and subsequent fever, Mr. Lincoln may have given his ten sentences that summed up the war and echo through the centuries while suffering with a mild case of smallpox. The first Wikipedia link, above, provides the text which takes little more than the shake of a lamb's tail to read but of course you know how Lincoln ended his just over 2-minute Address--with, "--that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Since beginning Stars Over Washington on October 16, 2005, I assert that this has been my clear blogging objective as well while holding on to a sovereign United States of America. Yet there are forces, ancient forces, that remain determined to overtake and dissolve our nation's sovereignty and as we see in the 'New Millennium', they are now far along that path. Our educational system, financial system, religious institutions, family traditions, and the US government have been under attack for many years with a goal of using our nation to set up a global government, what some call a New World Order; a "revived Roman Empire." some say, and the last on planet earth.

Perhaps you're aware that Bush Sr considered his 1990/91 Operation Desert Storm invasion as a heralding of the 'new order' so here's a handy timeline of the events leading up to the invasion though you'll find no NWO mention on its list.

So with recent interest in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln film stoking the Lincoln legend (based on the book by Doris Kearns Goodwin), I thought you might wish to view the horoscope of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address with a few brief astro-notes--a bunch of my scribbles marked on the chart (please click image to enlarge.) Mr. Spielberg gave the keynote address at the 149th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address which was an honor for him as it would be for anyone. ABC news has details of the event here if you missed it.

Rising in the Address horoscope is Mr. Lincoln's natal Venus in Aries, ruled by war planet Mars, and with the Address' rising sign, his illness is denoted by Pisces, sign of contagion and infection (it may have been smallpox).

Yet the inspirational nature of his words is also shown by Jupiter-Neptune-ruled Pisces for on a sacred level, the duo represents the Grand Spirit called forth by Lincoln's words:

Horoscope: Lincoln's Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863 2:00 pm LMT PA; Hour of warrior Mars which conjoins Jupiter 11Sco13/57 in 8th house of Death along with Mercury (oration) and Sun 27Sco00 (leader) which conjoins the Moon's North Node @27Sco48 (public contact); Sun in Nodal degree indicates a fated or karmic encounter for the President and the people including the millions who read his brief speech in newspapers across the country quite soon after it was so modestly delivered.

Plus, Saturn, considered to be a karmic planet (reaping what's been sown) @14Lib14 is in process of returning to its natal position in America's July 4, 1776 natal horoscope (14:48)--a national Saturn Return. This actually occurred three times in 1863 and 1864: 6 days later on November 25, then the Rx Return on April 3, 1864, and the final conjunction on August 19, 1864. And of course our nation's Saturn Returns always stimulate the natal promise of our Cardinal Sun-Saturn square (90 degrees, from Cancer to Libra) with its obstacles, fears, and difficulties which must be responsibly addressed with maturity, resolve, a sense of accountability, and patience. The Gettysburg Address illustrates these qualities (and I wish America would exhibit more of them now--edit: 12.5.14--jc.)

Our nation's last Saturn Return was a three-fer as well: December 3, 2010, March 22, 2011 (Rx), and August 28, 2011--all during the Obama administration. And you know how August 2011 turned out with the self-inflicted credit downgrade thanks primarily to Republicans and their spiteful antics, plus, a deficit brouhaha which resulted in the forming of a so-called "Super Committee" being set up from within Congress and threats of sequestration which have been carried out.

Marked, upper right you see, "Sun rises with (Fixed Star) Ras Alhague (desire to heal a wound; to create balance), a star linked to Lincoln's natal Mercury (10Pis18) by paran for as Ras Alhague rose on his day of birth, natal Mercury was at Nadir showing that healing the wounds of the Civil War and of slavery is one of the primary actions he is most remembered for after death.

My December 5, 2014 Update begins here for the most part:

If only such healing would continue! But now it's December 5, 2014 and the 6th of 7 exact Cardinal Squares between riotous Uranus and Pluto will perfect on *December 15th as protests and uprisings continue to occur the world over and generational clashes are fought, often with violence. In America we march against the brutality of the Police State--the same issue as in 1999 under Bill Clinton--as the energies stream forth from the Uranus-Pluto conjunction/s of the mid-1960s, the Civil Rights era--yet they are frustrated and blocked (square = 90 degrees) making conflict even more likely.

And making current matters more complex and confrontational than in the 1960s, America's natal Mars (22Gemini), the archetypal Warrior, turned retrograde (inward) by progression in the summer of 2006 though its punishing effects could be felt about two years prior to the actual Station Rx (18Libra.) This condition of our once-Direct Mars may be applied to many levels of society such as our wounded vets returning from wars (another legacy from the 1960s and 1970s), decreasing the size of the US military (if it's true that they are), the regressive politicians (mostly testosterone-driven males) trying to re-turn our nation to pre-Civil War days ("Oh, Rhett!"), violent acts perpetrated on US soil, the anarchists and zealots now undermining our government, Klan and Nazi activities--and obviously to a slew of police departments now trained to use excessive force against the American people...not to "protect and serve" but to "shoot first, ask few if any questions later."

This includes state prosecutors who defend police officers who gun down or choke to death unarmed citizens rather than presenting the facts to Grand Juries--then prosecutors decline asking for indictments so that trials by jury may be held--such anti-societal 'good ole boys' of The Brotherhood come under the Mars Rx category as well resulting in combative Martian energy and motivation being turned inward toward our nation's own citizens with one of the power elite's goals depopulation and another to stack as many Americans into overcrowded privatized prison cells as possible in order to exceed shareholders' dreams of vast wealth.

Oh, and criminalizing a massive jail population is also one method of keeping millions of marching males off the streets and under lock and key. Yet another Mars Rx image? A prisoner being held (often arbitrarily) in solitary confinement.


Ras Alahague details from Brady's Book of Fixed Stars.

Abraham Lincoln February 12, 1809 6:54 am LMT Hodgenville, KY.

*The 7th and final waning square between 'new' Uranus and 'ancient' Pluto occurs on March 17, 2015. After that date, their dynamic power struggles begin to ease up through resolution or exhaustion though other cosmic influences reflecting societal meddlings will manage to keep all pots stirred and simmering.

When natal Mars symbolically turns Rx by progression it takes approximately 80 years for the Red Planet to turn Direct again so either We the People must act with determination to demand corrections to such convoluted conditions being forced upon us via our government officials (as ordered by distant entities) or we'll have a long slog that will only become more difficult as plodding saboteur Pluto creeps toward America's natal Pluto out-of-bounds and in late Saturn-ruled Capricorn (sign of government, law, and business). And since our nation has never experienced a Pluto Return before, no one knows precisely what to expect by 2022. :(

But let us not forget that thanks to the 2014 Midterm Elections, the neocon war hawks are re-turning to Washington in January 2015--swords drawn and lands to conquer. How tragic for our nation that US Mars Rx also describes the voters who didn't excercise their right to vote on November 4, 2014--and the various election tricks and targeting of misleading campaign ads that helped Republicans 'win' a majority in the US Senate so that the Pentagon can happily re-turn to an expanding empiric war. They won't be sufficient but get the national credit cards out! Because World War III will cost us the world.

"There exists a shadowy government--"

Chalmers Johnson, who clued me in a few years ago on such topics as The Sorrows of Empire, and Blowback wrote about what he called "the president's private army"--the CIA--in an article from 2007, Agency of Rogue.

Of interest to those who are familiar with America's so-called 'Sibly' natal horoscope (there's more than one) set for 5:10 pm LMT (July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA) our nation's 10th house Saturn exalted in Libra and 9th house Neptune in earthy Virgo created a midpoint picture with natal Midheaven (MC = The Goal) which perfected in approximately 1780 (natal Saturn about 4 degrees from Neptune divided by 2 = Saturn-Neptune midpoint.) With controlling Saturn in Mundane Astrology signifying government, law, and business and nebulous Neptune's secret-invisible-shadowy things often masked or hidden (in America's case, 'in plain sight' apparently), we have:

Saturn-Neptune = MC: using inefficient methods when completed work is needed (Munkasey); peculiar loss of ambition; giving up or capitulating to demands of the environment totally (Tyl.)

Or we may simply say that The Goal for this nation was to set up and maintain a shadow government built on secrecy and deception which All the World sees at US natal MC! And you know, the more I read about how America's Great Seal images are based on Illumnati symbols (a secret society of Utopians who wish to demolish all governments and other civilized institutions and systems), I'm almost ready to believe just that even though it's difficult to accept that America's Founding Fathers were so crass as our present-day politicians or that they set up our nation to fail (Saturn in 10th house = 'fall from grace' if Saturnian themes are neglected as they've been--and fittingly, they weren't aware of Neptune in 1776.)

Who Else Knows About This?

As Senator Daniel Inouye informed us in 1987 (during the money-diverting, arms-dealing Reagan administration which helped fund and set up the following):

There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from law itself."

That's one good reason why they tell us we're broke! And perhaps it partially explains why, in spite of millions of Americans protesting against the US government's preemptive wars, invasions, and occupations in the Middle East, We the People are seldom if ever listened to by our "representatives" who obviously dance to a different tune than of a government "--of the people, by the people, for the people," as President Abraham Lincoln described our country when closing his Gettysburg Address of 1863.

Krugman's The Great Abdication (1931 v 2012)

Historical Eclipses, 1930s v 2012, the Fed, and the EU Debt Crisis

by Jude Cowell

If you've read economist Paul Krugman's NYT op-ed of June 24, The Great Abdication, you know that he likens the current financial crisis in Europe and how its creditor nations have chosen to come to the aid of Spain with the actions taken to similar events of 1931.

The Fed in the US and the Central Bank of Europe are missing their marks and not stepping up to take responsibility as it ought to be taken. Now this is a Political Astrology blog so is there an astrological parallel at all which might link together the failures of 1931 and the misdirected actions of 2012?

Well, since Solar and Lunar eclipses have influence upon the Collective in any area of the globe (and often do), perhaps the themes of the exuberant October 11, 1931 Solar Eclipse @17 Libra in the 5 New South Saros Series will suffice since it marched headlong into the 6 North Saros Series of March 7, 1932 @ 17Pisces (a critical degree.) Together they may provide us a window into how things were going during the last quarter of 1931 and into 1932 with Herbert Hoover as US president and the American people reeling from the Crash of 1929. Click to view the 1929 horoscope and you'll note that in 2012, disruptive anarchist Uranus has returned to its 1929 position in Aries.

Grand Schemes and the Fed: Exuberance Comes Before a Fall?

The 5 New South Solar Eclipse manifested a few months after a Great Conjunction of the Big Banker duo of power, Jupiter and Pluto (the Fed and their directors, the international banking houses) @19Can16 on May 27, 1931, and about one year prior to a Great Conjunction the Fraudster-Speculator-Wastrel pair of planets, Jupiter and Neptune on September 19, 1932 @8Vir25. As you know, the combined energies of Jupiter-Neptune are imprinted forever upon the Obama presidency--first term anyway--since they conjoined and began another of their 13-year cycles three times during 2009 and washed out US natal Moon (We the People) with grander scams, heists, and foreclosures than we care to admit. And we feel them rippling still.

October 1931: 5 New South themes are rather high-spirited (Jupiter was traversing tropical Gemini then as now)--joy, happpiness, peak experiences, benefits, good news. But then came 1932...

March 1932: 6 North themes are quite another matter and relate all too well to current events and the measley actions being taken: relationships to father figures and authority; the need to take responsibility and control; commitments are made due to other people's unreliability (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Or they should be if honest brokers were acting. But instead they're abdicating their responsibilities, as Professor Krugman points out.

Now you may know of many events from 1931 and 1932 which are described by the themes of either of these Solar Eclipses but there are two 6N events in particular which must be mentioned though one is from its earlier manifestation in 1914 @6Pisces:

1. World War I ("to make the world safe for democracy"!! Woodrow Wilson had already secretly pledged America into the war when he campaigned on that absurdly propagandistic slogan--at the direction of war profiteers, aka, international bankers and their agents in the US. Big bankers make much much more money loaning to governments than to ordinary folk. President Abraham Lincoln of greenbacks fame didn't fall for their usury interest rate schemes to finance the 'Civil' War and you know how his story turned out.)

2. The Bonus Army of 1932 when President Hoover ordered Douglas MacArthur and the army to fire on US citizens who had honorably served their country and needed the promised pay earlier than the 1945 date that Congress had irresponsibly set. For as you know, by 1932 the nation was into the Great Depression and families needed to be fed.

But Hoover's Bonus Army Mow-Down doesn't provide the typically glowing image of Pennsylvania Avenue so often cultivated these days to exalt Washington DC, does it?

'Conspiracy? The Lincoln Assassination' (full film) w Astro-Notes

Is the Lincoln Assassination Still a Mystery?

by Jude Cowell

From Alexandra Bruce at ForbiddenKnowledgeTV comes a heads-up on an intriguing question concerning the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln:

Was the plot to kill Abraham Lincoln orchestrated by the highest levels of the confederate government? After 20 years of independent research, Edward Steers claims that Booth received substantial and critical help from the confederate secret service, operating in Canada.

Bilderbergers and a Web Of Debt: Solar Eclipses repeating

The Bilderberg Plan? A 'One World Company' not a NWO

by Jude Cowell

Though Ellen Brown's work is not wholly unknown to me, it's only today that I discovered a series of her instructive financial articles available at Web Of Debt where clear explanations are given for thorny topics such as the Bilderberg Group's involvement (culpability!) in the ongoing financial ills which crescendoed once again in 2008 and which continue to plague financial systems here and abroad.

Here's an interesting quote from Prof. Carroll Quigley, an insider groomed by international bankers, those self-exalted 'Masters of the Universe' who engineer and profit handsomely from bubbles, booms, and busts.

In 1966 Quigley wrote in Tragedy and Hope:

“The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.

The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans…."

This is why I feel quite droopious when I think of the ability or desire of the US government or any other's to 'repair' the world economy or improve financial systems of nation-states.

For unless the stranglehold now being tightened by Bilderbergers, monarchists, private shareholders, and other participants in the global conspiracy to "own, not govern the world" is addressed at the root level, it seems likely that a global collapse will occur, if not now then later, and that the Bilderbergers' ARISTOCRACY OF PURPOSE between American and European elites will attain their goal to "manage the planet" through a global network of "giant cartels", as reported by Ellen Brown.

(No, I'm not certain what difference it makes whether we call them a 'New World Order' as Poppy Bush, the Rockefellers, and others have done--or a 'One World Company', Limited or otherwise. They su*k no matter what.)

So whenever you, dear reader, feel psychically protected enough to face honestly the hydra-headed 'satan sandwich' of greed and Machiavellian power-grabbing that make up the global banking industry (syndicate), you can do little better than to check out Ellen Brown's series of articles at Web Of Debt.

What Do Abraham Lincoln and JFK Have To Do With It?

Mention there is made of Abraham Lincoln's assassination soon after he had
printed 'greenbacks'--debt and interest free--to finance the Civil War rather than accepting usury interest rates on loans that were offered by central bankers. Culpability for his heinous murder as ordered by certain bankers is not proposed in Ms. Brown's articles but I myself add such an assertion here (click 'greenbacks; link to read about Abe and about JFK's similar actions in June 1963.)

For as you know, it's by making large loans to governments that central bankers acquire massive wealth and daringly, Lincoln had made an end-run around their determination to profit from the 'Civil' War which they themselves had funded in the first place.

And since the shady but not very secretive 'One World Company' must prevent governments from issuing their own currencies and credit in order to maximize Company profits--and keep governments and politicians under heel--we then see all through history examples of bankruptcies, foreclosures, crashes, and sales of people's assets at fire sale prices. And who do you think buys such assets?

Hence the financial precipice we're paused upon as the take-over plan progresses with its deluded idea of a "destiny" that intends to control all resources and necessities of life for the whole of humanity (while retaining only the best of everything for themselves.)

The Process Continues: 2008 into 2009

Now besides 2008, the year 2009 shows prominently in the scenarios and systems detailed in Ellen Brown's articles linked above and so I remind you of the Solar Eclipse of July 21, 2009 in the 11 South Saros Series--at a critical-crisis degree: 29 Cancer 27. This eclipse opposed US natal Pluto in Capricorn (with our Secondary Progressed Pluto 29Cap+, and natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx in the 2nd house of Money in the Sibly chart.)

11S themes are: 'a need to make sudden reforms; old methods will fail and new systems are required to deal with events brought (or enforced?) by the eclipse; new ways of thinking/handling issues are needed, and any blocks may be violently or tragically removed'.

(Paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Past years in the modern era in which 11S manifested are: 1901, 1919, 1937, 1973, 1991, (2009), and next, in 2027. In these previous years, similar themes were experienced collectively along with profiteering from the misery, loss, and death that wars and financial panics created. What the 'One World Company Limited' could have in mind for 2027, I do not care to guess.

But before 2027 arrives, America must first navigate our national Pluto Return/s of 2022 (3x in Feb-July-Oct), the first Pluto Return/s in US history. Background influences of the Solar Eclipses during 2022 include 6N and 6S, both of which had manifested in 1932 during the rises to the world stage of Hitler and FDR.

April 30, 2022 6N @ '10Tau' = 'authority issues; a need to take control and responsibility; commitments made due to another's unreliability or illness'; Oct 25, 2022 6S @ '2Sco' = 'being forceful and taking power; manic energy within relationships and group activities; sudden events.

Back to July 21, 2009's 11 South Solar Eclipse @ 29Can27

You may note that 11S's occurrence in 1991 timed the assassination of writer Danny Casolaro who was to meet with a contact who had promised him more information on PROMIS software and on the global entity/network which Casolaro had titled, The Octopus (aka, The Beast, imho.) The writer was murdered before he could complete his whistle-blowing book on the global crime syndicate and his notes mysteriously 'disappeared' from the scene of the crime...

"...any blocks may be violently or tragically removed."

Solar Eclipses of 2009: 11N and 11S

Though no recent edits have been made, you may wish to read a previous post concerning 11S's effects, Danny Casolaro (1991), and financial matters, plus, view the July 21, 2009 Solar Eclipse horoscope--along with the chart of the 'New President' Solar Eclipse of January 26, 2009 (both charts set for Washington DC) at Jude's Threshold, one of my other blogs.

But why review the 11 North 'New President' Solar Eclipse of January 2009? Because its flavor and portents are indelibly imprinted forever by the Universe upon the presidency of Barack matter where he may roam or vacation.

Netanyahu in America: heckle at your peril

In yesterday's post, written in real time, I wondered what was happening in the hall to the lady who shouted out as Israeli PM Netayahu was addressing a Joint Session of the US Congress whose members began applauding loudly in an attempt to cover up the noise as she was strong-armed out of the room...

Protester Who Heckled Netanyahu Beaten, Arrested at Hospital

By Eric W. Dolan

The 28-year-old Jewish American woman was allegedly tackled by members of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) during Netanyahu's speech to Congress after she yelled, "stop Israeli war crimes." #

Unfortunately she was sitting too far away from yesterday's speaker to hurl her shoes.

As our much-lauded President Abraham Lincoln said, "To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."

Civil War Apr 12,1861: Midpt Pictures and Hidden Hands

Were Hidden Hands Behind the American Civil War?

by Jude Cowell

The horoscope for the start of the American Civil War, its birth chart, is set for the first shot fired, April 12, 1861 4:30 am LMT Charleston, South Carolina at Fort Sumter.

Rising is 27Pis05 with Mercury 24:56 and Neptune 29Pis57; a 12th house Chiron 00Pis56 is being transited by Neptune as I type; MC (The Goal) 28Sag14; at IC, the HOW? Point of the chart is '28Gem' = BANKRUPTCY. It's an Hour of Mars, perfect for fighting a war; contentious Mars 6Gem02 and rebellious Uranus 9Gem21 are snugged around and triggering US natal Uranus 8Gem55 (which is now being transited by asteroid Midas, perfect for a post on a "Civil" War which was financed on both sides by the House of Rothschild for their own power-grabbing on.)

The closest you'll get to this sort of info in the Civil War's Wikpedia page is by scrolling to the section on Blocking International Intervention but if the Rothschild name is mentioned there, I've yet to find it.

In his centuries-encompassing book The Secret History of the West, Nicholas Hagger states that the Rothschilds sent an agent, August Belmont, in 1837 (one year after the second Bank of the US had collapsed) to run a bank in New York, buy government bonds, and establish his credentials by advising President Andrew Jackson.

The objective was to create an incident that would establish an American central bank, and a war would require the US government to borrow from the Rothschilds in order to pay for it, thought they (it had worked for them elsewhere.) England and France were too far away; Mexico and Canada weren't strong enough so the House of Rothschild could easily take the reins and direct events from behind the scenes, much as they do now.

According to Mr. Hagger's research, the Priory of Sion wanted America back from the Templars so the Rothschilds planned an American civil war with the North a Sionist British colony, annexed to Canada and controlled by Lionel Rothschild, and the Templar South to be given to Napoleon III of France and controlled by James Rothschild.

To persuade the South to secede from the union, Illuminized Sionist-Rosicrucian Freemasons used the Knights of the Golden Circle (member: John Wilkes Booth) which had been formed in 1854 by George Bickley with the objective of spreading racial tension; its military arm was the Ku Klux Klan. Meanwhile, Jesse James stole gold from banks and buried it to fund the war (nearly $7 billion!)

The states that seceded would be united in the Confederate States of America with each eventually becoming like an independent country. Abraham Lincoln (inaugurated March 4, 1861) told the American people that, "combinations too powerful to be suppressed by the ordinary machinery of peacetime government had assumed control of various southern states."

House of Rothschild Financed Both Sides

The Rothschilds financed the North through Belmont, Jay Cooke, Seligman brothers, and Speyer & Co.; the South was financed through their agent Judah Benjamin, who became Secretary of State for the Confederacy in 1862, and whose daughter was married to Frankfurt's Baron D'Erlanger, a relative and agent of the Rothschilds. Benjamin's law partner, John Sidell, was Confederate envoy to France; Sidell borrowed money on behalf of the South to finance the Confederacy.

In 1861, England sent 8,000 soldiers into Canada; in 1862, English, Spanish, and French troops landed in Mexico to collect debts; in 1863, France took over Mexico City with 30,000 troops.

Confederate Army General Albert Pike was a pro-French Templar Scottish Rite Mason and at the time, the most powerful Freemason in the world. Most of the political and military leaders of the Confederacy were Masons under Pike's secret command. The Confederates offered Louisiana and Texas to Napoleon III if he would send troops against the North. Lincoln, following the example of Tsar Alexander II who freed Russia's serfs, issued an order to free all slaves in 1863. Eventually, the Tsar sent the Russian fleet to support Mr. Lincoln.

The US Congress approved Lincoln's plan to borrow $450 million in return for bonds of states - greenbacks (created by the First Legal Tender Act of Feb 25, 1862) - to pay for the Civil War thus placing a big glitch in the Rothschilds' central bank plan for the US. This made international bankers' money unnecessary and as German statesman Otto von Bismarck said,

"The foreign financiers...understood at once, that the United States would escape their grip. The death of Lincoln was resolved upon."

You may wish to view an older post (sans edits) on Lincoln's natal and assassination charts, dual horoscopes included.

As we see from events since the beginning of the New Millennium, the international financiers' "grip" bwo the Federal Reserve Bank of America has turned out to be successful for them and has brought their dreamed-of collapse for America. As noted above, the horoscope of the Civil War has 28Sag14 at Midheaven where transiting Pluto has recently crossed. In 10th house is North Node of Destiny @ 17Cap24, and '18Cap' = "The Union Jack Flies From a British Destroyer" which is the primary degree of the Illuminati pair's Great Conjunction/s of 1993, Uranus and Neptune...the New World Order. This degree's negative/shadow side expression = smug or strong-armed paternalism. (MEJ.)

We hear echoes from the 1860s in Washington when we hear of state v federal government, an old argument sporting gray whiskers.

Midpoint Pictures Tell a Tale of April 12, 1861

Okay, I'll hush for now on the topic of the Secret Hand behind the American Civil War and type out for you the midpoint pictures of influence as the first shot was fired 150 years ago today.

Tyl and Ebertin are my midpoint sources with any, all, or none being applicable and subject to transits and progressions; you'll note fraudulent, misguided Neptune on the rise at a 29th critical-crisis degree which has contributed to the controversy to this day of Why the war was fought. As usual with secret machinations involved, a correct grasp of motivation and cause is quite impossible without knowledge of the fuller picture:

Mercury/Neptune = ASC: potential overreaction to others; being exploited, harmed, or deceived.

Mars/NN = ASC: comradeship; energetic cooperation; family ties.

Sun/Uranus = Moon 15Tau36: rashness; emotional excitability; impulsiveness; a demand for need fulfillment.

Moon/Neptune = Sun 22Ari28: illusions and deceptions; receptive power.

Mercury/Jupiter = Mars: the execution of plans; energetic opinion is well-accepted; making one's point effectively.

Jupiter/Neptune (the speculators and fraudsters) = Uranus, the revolutionary: liking the shades; experiencing the contrast between imagination and reality; the stage of coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation.

And such a difficult situation has spread across the globe through the auspices of the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the global central banking system, and the monied ruling class of plutocrats who control the US money supply and thus the destiny of our nation.

May my several ancestors who fought in the Civil War R.I.P.

Astrology: Dueling Rallies in DC - Beck v Sharpton 8.28.10

If you've been in a cave lately you may have missed the news of two rallies being held in Washington DC tomorrow, August 28, one to mark the 47th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's I Have a Dream speech which was delivered at the Lincoln Memorial and which will be led by former civil rights activist Al Sharpton and the other led by erstwhile Obama opponents, FOX News and its prevailing mouthpiece, Glenn Beck.

Billed as a rally to honor our troops (who could use it), Beck's logic is somewhat turned on its head when one remembers Reverend King's opposition to the Vietnam War and America's tendency to use her less well-connected citizens to fight rich men's wars. For oddly enough, it's the FOX News-Beck rally being held at the Lincoln Memorial and Beck has claimed that he didn't at first realize the rally was scheduled for anniversary of MLK's famous speech - and in the exact same location at Lincoln's feet.

That Beck was unaware is difficult for me to fall for, how about you? But if true, perhaps a refresher course in US history may be in order for Mr. Beck and his colleagues who should have advised him. Methinks it more likely there's a skunk hiding in the woodpile!

Be that as it may, we know the ongoing Cardinal T-Square gives the same old difficult midpoint picture it's been giving the world of late between the two societal planets, Jupiter and Saturn, and manipulative string-puller Pluto in Capricorn. On the morrow, one is tempted to say that Pluto represents the powers-behind-the-FOX-News-rally, the Koch Brothers, who have funded much of the Tea Party's efforts in order to get people in the streets and undermine President Obama's term in the White House, to rally GOP voters - and to assure ballooning corporate profits for the Koch family.

That honest grasroots Tea Party members don't speak out about the whackiness of being funded by a massive corporation whose fortune has been made in several realms including petroleum and the manufacture of known carcinogenic, formaldehyde, is beyond me. Don't they feel their movement to be co-opted and secretly directed by those with quite a different agenda than taking back our government - co-opted by those who hide their faces and true motives?

Jupiter/Saturn = Pluto: transforming personal ideas about the future into today's reality; intense business activity; a total reversal of previously made plans; immense effort; toil; violent restrictions; separation. (All mdpt pics in this post from R. Ebertin; M. Munkasey.)

The point of meetings and encounters, the North Node (NN; 10Cap16) of the Moon (with the separative SN now in the midst of US natal planets in Cancer: will calls for Geithner's and Summers' firings lead to separation from the president?) nears its worrisome conjunction with tr Pluto on November 9, 2010 @ 3Cap36 - the Moon conjoins and possibly triggers them @ 3:13 pm est in DC; Pluto/NN = Moon: others arouse sensitive passions; uncertainties after meeting powerful people; the ups and downs of encounters taken to extremes)...but for Saturday's rallies, Pluto and NN remain approximately 7 degrees apart.

Here are three midpoint pictures which center on Saturday's NN and which you may find to be quite descriptive of the planned activities:

Mars/Jupiter = NN: increased ability to push your ideas and plans on others; attracting people who have similar ideas about the use of force in competitive activities (November 2010 midterms? jc); good cooperation dynamics.

Venus/Jupiter = NN: making proper connections with people able to support your ideas or causes; joining groups that value your opinions; meetings where feedback is received about your doctrines or ideas.

Venus/Uranus = NN: attention-getting methods that use disruption; intensification of feelings leads to new associations.

Well, it's after midnight so I shall close with a bit on the rallies' Sun Virgo-Moon Aries combo whose traits include...diligence; idealistic dedication; caustic wit; bossiness; committed; workaholic; skillful and pragmatic; a tendency toward scathing criticism; excessive verbosity; possessing a know-it-all attitude.

(Note: this is the natal Sun-Moon combination of Dick Cheney.) (Correction: not so! see Comments below this post: Cheney's natal Sun is in AQ w a Pisces Moon - thanks a bunch for catching it, Pete! jc)

This Sun-Moon combo has one Image for Integration: A jolly, rotund monk enjoying his food and wine while excelling in well-worn Latin sayings, witty responses, and kindly good humor. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, by Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

A 'rotund monk' (Beck?) and Sarah Palin, too? Well, 'kindly good humor' does sound lovely, doesn't it?

Yet this day of duelling rallies in DC should be quite interesting, emotionally manipulative in time for November elections, and full of agitation and exaggeration. And perhaps it's catty of me to say so, but I will be listening closely for Palin's erudite remarks in Latin.

That's an inventive verbosity I'd really like to hear.

Horoscope of Lincoln's Inauguration 1861 w/ link to his 1861 Address

A previous SO'W post displays the horoscope with details of the March 4, 1861 Inauguration of Abraham Lincoln. Included are the planetary positions of his March 4, 1865 Inauguration ceremony around the outer rim of the 1861 chart image.

Yale's Avalon Project has the text of President Lincoln's Inaugural Address of 1861 if you wish to refresh your memory. (Not that you were there or anything.)

And there's a post on my WordPress blog with a click-to-enlarge image of Lincoln's natal chart with his Assassination chart around it - there was a Mystic Rectangle pattern overhead!

When Lincoln drew his last breath, transiting Chiron was at tr Midheaven and he, his family, and our nation were deeply wounded...just as we've been with other assassinations, haven't we? Such murders shouldn't happen here, of all places. Yet they do.

The Goal (Mc) was the wounding (his death) of the American people resulting in the federal banking system being kept safe from Mr. Lincoln's reputed plan to tinker with and restrain rich bankers and their overseas cousins. So far, our current President Obama seems wary of too much tinkering with the rulers of the roost as evidenced by Washington's watered down 'financial reform' bill for Wall Street, a bill made toothlessly gummy where it should be ravenous for our protection from greedy wolves and cheats.

Yes, someone has distinct ideas about the path or destiny of America and they don't care what they have to do to dictate it. Our nation's natal Pluto out-of-bounds in Capricorn could be the culprit, saboteur and 'secret hand' that he is, yet our natal Venus and Mars are OOBs, too.

OOBs planets tend to operate without joining in with the rest of the chart's actors (planets) so OOBs energies tend to be 'pure' in the sense of a lack of synergistic influences which would be more stable if they were in bounds of the earthly plane and playing together nicely. (That's how I read it - you may disagree. I'm making 'OOBs' sound a lot like 'unaspected' I know.) Yet an OOBs condition can also indicate isolation and bring unusual success, too, and perhaps Venus, Mars, and Pluto have helped the US with that.

One never quite knows how an OOBs planet will act even when in aspectual relationship with another's kind of a wild card signature - and America is known for acting unilaterally.

Well, perhaps Mr. Obama is simply having to watch his back as he deals with the obscenely wealthy string-pullers of the global banking system. Assuming he isn't actually one of them, we can't really blame him, I suppose.

But he had to know the kind of people he was shilling for when he signed on for Oval Office duty!

On Thankgiving Day Mary Had a Little Lamb

Sarah Josepha Hale, the influential magazine editor who wrote many articles on behalf of creating a national holiday in honor of the pilgrims' day of thanks, fasting, and prayer, wrote the nursery rhyme, Mary Had a Little Lamb.

On my first day of Band class in 3rd grade I was given a recorder and told to learn to play, Mary Had a Little Lamb. I learned it quickly enough but was too shy to play it in front of classmates, so that was my last Band lesson. Guitar, piano, organ, and autoharp were much more my speed as there was no spit involved.

Another link between little me and the song (stop me if you've heard this before) is that the evening I was born, a personal name asteroid arose a few minutes after I entered the Earth space/time flux, asteroid Judith. The Sabian Symbol of its nodal degree is:

"Mary and Her White Lamb." My mother's name is Mary, I'm continually grateful, and I love cranberries.

Am I angling here for an invitation to your Thanksgiving Day feast? Are you serving turkey, ham, or lamb? Now I'm about 95% vegetarian these days and have been 100% in years past, so don't pass me any ham 'cos I haven't eaten pork in over 30 years. But yes, turkey is good with the right stuffing or dressing, and plenty of cranberry sauce. Pumpkin Pie is all right by me though I like Sweet Potato or Pecan Pie better.

So of all the meats I occasionally miss, lamb with rosemary would be the one yet I can't remember the last time I had lamb chops. Hmm...may have to do something about that.

So because of Sarah J. Hale's continual efforts, President Lincoln proclaimed a national holiday, Thanksgiving Day, in 1863. Even President Washington had gotten into the act with a Thanksgiving Proclamation in 1789 when he called for Americans to "unite to render to Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection."

Now I know George Washington was a Freemason, a deist, and who-knows-what-else, but his call still holds water around these parts, and I hope around yours, too. So...

Happy Thanksgiving Day 2009, my fellow Americans!

Yes, I know our nation has gone astray with endless war, greed, and fraud, but it's the best nation that ever was and I'd be really thankful if it would continue standing for 233 years more. And stop meddling in other nations' affairs.

Glenn Beck Feb 10, 1964: Sun AQ-Moon Cap

Glenn Beck, moderator of The Glenn Beck Show on talk radio, and Fox News TV's guru of political discourse, was born on February 10, 1964 in Mount Vernon, Washington.

As his Wiki bio linked above tells, Beck is a 'self-described recovering alcoholic and drug addict' who credits Alcoholics Anonymous for his sobriety. And as a Roman Catholic who converted to the Latter Day Saints faith, Mr. Beck is under notice not to drink by way of the LDS' health message.

He calls himself a libertarian, too, but since I never listen to him or watch him perform his schtick on radio or TV, I can't say precisely what he means by it.

Feb 10, 1964

Since the Moon remained in ambitious Capricorn for the entire 24-hour period of his day of birth, we may consider Sun Aquarius-Moon Capricorn for his Sun-Moon blend, an Air-Earth combo of energies which has an 'up in the air, down to earth' flavor simultaneously.

The Earth-Air combo is good at making plans and taking action without delay, and it's a master of the practical mundane world. Yet it may easily become stuck in a cost-efficient approach, and may seem rather dry and scientific for it discounts indulging in the world of feelings as if it's a sign of weakness.

Sun AQ-Moon Cap: shrewd honesty; understands human nature; emotionally detached to avoid dependence on others; intimacy not a strong point; enjoys a challenge and a calculated risk; is a practical reformer who possesses firmness of purpose. Independent and full of common sense, this blend is a dedicated searcher for truth with inventive abilities and organizational talent.

'Images for Integration: A revolutionary is elected president...An alien civilization comes to Earth to rescue man from imminent destruction.' (Sun Sign, Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

The Sun AQ-Moon Cap blend is shared natally by a cast of interesting characters:

Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Mia Farrow, Betty Friedan, Rosa Parks, Mary Quant, Franco Zefferelli, Jeb Bush, and John Barrymore, who intoned:

"In Genesis it says that it is not good for a man to be alone, but sometimes it's a great relief."

And with Mr. Beck's propensity and flair for controversy and the political shenanigans which have caused him to lose a large share of his advertising sponsorships, perhaps it's more helpful to remember this quote from President Lincoln:

"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God give us to see the right."

With malice toward none?

Econo-Crisis article round-up - with pithiness in between

For a weekend plethora of articles you may not find better than the following list if you're up for econo-crisis/financial collapse/government-and-banking fraud issues and what to do about them.

Apologies, but I couldn't refrain from tucking pithy comments in between each one...but I don't believe I've ever heisted any money from you, so perhaps you might forgive me my pithiness eventually, yes?

"Liquidate the Banks; Fire the Executives!"

By Mike Whitney

While Congress approved a mere $700 billion in emergency funding for the TARP, Geithner and Bernanke deftly sidestepped the public opposition to more bailouts and shoveled another $3.3 trillion through the back door via loans and leverage for crappy mortgage paper that will never regain its value. #

A Plea To President Obama: Don't Bankrupt America

The Looting of America

By Barry Grey

The New York Times on Thursday published a front-page article that provides further insight into the economic and class interests that are being served by the Obama administration's economic "recovery" policies. #

(Pluto-Chiron = plutocracy; oppression; class warfare; corporatism and any other ism you'd care to name including fascism, racism, militarism, and imperialism; disenfranchisement; primal violence, etc. America's natal Pluto-Chiron midpoint at '9 Pisces' is conjunct her natal Ceres, asteroid of nurturing and security, which worked well to some degree with plutocrats running the middle class show - and vastly enriching themselves - until the jig was up at the New Millennium...

and now everyone - even the myopic among us who can't be bothered with ugly old Politics - can see its tendrils curling around the foreclosed-upon porch steps...

Pluto and Chiron had their Great Conjunction on Dec 30, 1999 - upon US natal Ascendant (Sibly chart = ASC '12 Sag') - and were in parallel mid-August 2004.

'12Sag' is also transiting Pluto's position on the morning of 9.11 (opposite Saturn on US Descendant.) And Dick Cheney's Secondary Progressed Pluto-Chiron midpoint was sitting upon his Progr'd MC (The Goal) on the morning of 9.11.01 - but you really must view his Progr'd chart for 9.11.01 to appreciate its aptness. -jc) Thanks for the heads-up, Anonymous - Cheney link should be de-typo'd now.

Revive Lincoln's Monetary Policy

By Ellen Brown

The bankers had Lincoln's government over a barrel, just as Wall Street has Congress in its vice-like grip today. #

(So Lincoln monkeyed with the central banking system's gravy train and we know where it led our 16th president one dark night: Ford's Theater and a death bed. -jc)

Howard Zinn on Class in America: Video Interview

"In the United States we are really brought up to think there's only really one class. That is, the idea of class conflict, class struggle, that is foreign to American culture." says Zinn. "We're brought up to think that we're part of one big happy family," according to Zinn this is simply a perpetuated lie that contradicts the reality that a large percentage of the population doesn't fit in to this happy family model. #

(Isn't that what governments are for - perpetuating lies? Which doesn't make it right. It makes it perhaps more wrong because their lies and frauds adversely affect - and rob - millions of people. But they think they're above all that lower class 'following laws' nonsense! -jc)

Okay, I'll hush for now about all this ugliness. It IS ugly, I agree.

Yet tomorrow morning is a new day and I shall leap up jubilantly because, as I hope you already know...He is risen!

Astrology of Pres Obama and the Pharoah

If you have an interest on the question of who Pres. Barack Obama may be 'channeling' read this concerning the Nodal Axis of Destiny and other natal chart synchronicities for our 44th president.

Is Mr. Obama the personification of a famous Egyptian pharaoh? Is he Abraham Lincoln 'returned' to finish the job, perhaps?

Or: fill_in_the_reincarnation_blank for Pres. Obama who is certainly being asked to carry past life tasks forward (SN), based on circumstances most of which were not of his making.

To a Saturnian astrologer such as myself, this is enough to cause a world o'trouble even without Joan D'Arc and her warring Mars lurking behind Neptune's veils of unconsciousness and past-life theories.

This implies much South Node (unconscious; inherited) behavior and more than a little helping of projection onto others for what we should take responsibility for ourselves. No US president was ever handed the Oval Office reins with so few resources and umph to effect improvement.

Yes, I do want to believe that this isn't all part of a NWO script meant to herald riots across the globe. Many are already occurring and are often instigated by Mars and his short fuse of political bombs. Paid for by...someone...there's testy Mars, with Pluto's secret backing, continuing through the centuries to foment chaos in order to force change.

"Is it altogether a Utopian dream, that once in history a ruling class might be willing to make the great surrender, and permit social change to come about without hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life?"

-Upton Sinclair Sept 20, 1878; Sun Virgo-Moon Cancer's Images for Integration which melds the Sun's Virgo traits with the unconscious Moon in Luna's own sign of Cancer:

'A nutritionist serves his family organically grown chicken soup...The working mother...Two old Chinese women gossip about family problems as they work rhythmically in the rice paddies.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Maybe the above Sinclair quote is a cup of steaming chicken soup, eh? Thing is, 'hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life' (aka, population control) are key parts of the restructuring agenda.

Now in my formative years, I was as happy a reader as anyone of such classics as Atlas Shrugged, Stranger in a Strange Land, 1984, Animal Farm - you know the list.

Brilliant authors provided literary ideas of horrible futures of totalitarianism and other nasty, anti-social -isms which may have resulted in quite explicit blueprints for those who needed such ideas to follow and mould to their requirements.

We may guess this, because they can read, too. And it was Edward Bernays' cynical use of his Uncle Sigmund Freud's work on mental/emotional control through the unconscious (1920s) that started the control-the-masses ball rolling in earnest and made possible our consumerism society which has now had the bubbled rug snatched out from under.

Since I recently posted a link to the BBC's excellent video series on Edward Bernays' work which enabled business and political use of public relations techniques (spark a 'need' unconsciously then fulfill it for a price) I will simply advise you to scroll below for the skinny on that thing we call consumerism and how it's been used against us by way of our unconscious desires.

You know, political candidates are merely products in the exalted world of manipulation and propaganda. We-the-people bought the poked pig the media and pundits kept pointing out to us - which is not to belittle Pres. Obama's talents - and now he must perform in lieu of all the swine before him who have led us to this sorry pass.

Lincoln's Sun is conjunct Mr. Obama's natal South Node, and vice versa. That's a large imperative imposed by the times which says that unconsciously, Pres. Obama will strive toward Lincoln's Solar goals, to be the best Aquarian he can be. The Sun in any chart, however, is not considered a karmic planet, but the Nodal Axis is.

That the current president may be aware of the links between them and their times can only aid Pres. Obama's journey on the path of balancing and re-righting as many of the wrongs of this Solar-based nation as he, in his presidency, has time to accomplish.

Otherwise, he may be 'channeling' in the dark.

Too bad so many bad actors insist upon standing in the president's way to the detriment of the common good. For with that, they obviously are not concerned, and they have their own plans, thanks.
