Jan 6th Prosecution Info w/ Jan 6th's Solar Return 2022

by Jude Cowell

December 29, 2021

Have you heard that two Alex Jones employees have been arrested by the Department of Justice? That, and several other tidbits of Jan 6th prosecution information are revealed in the following podcast hosted by Nicole Sandler, subbing for the vacationing Brad Friedman of The BradBlog, during Nicole's recent interview with emptywheel's Marcy Wheeler so check it out especially if you're one of those wondering why the DOJ is moving so slowly if at all! (They're not slow, actually.)

Marcy Wheeler on insurrection prosecutions.

And for Friends of Political Astrology, below is a dual image of the 2:15 pm Horoscope (when US 1776 Uranus arose that afternoon in DC followed by the 2021 North Node - and US Mars in Gemini) of the Tr*mp Mob Attack of January 6, 2021 (lower left; his revenge: Sun/Saturn = Pluto) and the Jan 6th Attack's Solar Return 2022 Horoscope (upper right; as you know, solar return charts are 'good for' one year).

Quite a few chart factors are squooshed upon the images and intended for the curious few:

Kevin Drum says Fox 'News' Broke America

September 19, 2021: Perhaps you caught it already but in case you didn't you might want to check out progressive broadcaster and muckraker Brad Friedman's September 17th podcast which includes his guest journalist Kevin Drum on How Fox 'News' Broke America.

On Twitter he's kdrum, plus you can find Mr. Friedman there too tweeting as TheBradBlog.


And speaking of the undermining of America, disinformation, propaganda, and attacks on democracy, here's an astro-question for you: what does the Saturn-Pluto duo have to do with Nixon's Southern Strategy?

First US Presidential Election vs Election 2020

by Jude Cowell

May 28, 2020: So if you've read details concerning the First US Presidential Election held from December 15, 1788 to January 10, 1789 you know that the 69 electors voted unanimously for popular candidate George Washington. And if you keep up with current US political elections and the rigging, cheating, and gerrymandering activities perpetrated by one political party in particular, you would be pardoned for suspecting that Election 2020 may be America's last.

Stolen and stacked courts are a primary feature not a bug of the GOP master plan to permanently redden America despite the Will of the People, a democratic concept Republicans have never particularly favored, not within my memory anyway. Along with Trump's fake Twitter fuss about being fact-checked, such voting travesties, perversions of law, and dirty political tricks are discussed in Brad Friedman's May 27, 2020 BradCast in his interview with David Daley author of Ratf**ked: the True Story Behind the Secret Plan to Steal America's Democracy (and Why Your Vote Doesn't Count) and Unrigged: How Americans Battled Back to Save America. This truly is a don't-miss podcast.

Of course, between the outrageous antics and distractions by con man Trump and the debilitating Covid pandemic now virtually paralyzing the country, Republicans are counting on the American electorate to neglect such basic considerations as a permanent shift from democratic Republic to authoritarian state stretching into the foreseeable future and engineered by bad actors both foreign and domestic. Yes, things are worse than most people think but there's still a chance to right our Ship of State if enough of us pay attention and act to save America!

Horoscope: Prenatal Solar Eclipse @7Sag15 of the First US Presidential Election: Moral and Ethical Concepts and Philosophy of Sagittarius Lead to Karmic Progress

Now as you see, my study notes are penned, below, upon the Horoscope of the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') of America's first-ever presidential election which also happens to be the PE of George Washington's Inauguration of April 30, 1789 (horoscope shown on my WordPress blog, Jude's Threshold) and fortunately Jupiter was moving direct by then. This passionate 7 North Solar Eclipse remains of influence - is cosmically imprinted upon - all our quadrennial presidential elections including that of November 3, 2020 no matter who has been or will be in power at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as long as our now-sabotaged America exists and obviously America is in desperate need of a return to moral and ethical concepts and philosophies:

As always any and all Shares and/or your on-topic comments are much appreciated but please note that no ads masquerading as 'comments' will be published. jc

A further note: Of interest in the Horoscope of the US Constitution (September 17, 1787) is the Moon @7Sag10 conjoined by the 1788 7 North Solar Eclipse (basically a Lunar Return for the Constitution) and rebellious Uranus @29Can11 conjoined by 1788 Jupiter! Jupiter-Uranus = a fortunate turn of events - just what we need going forward!

Independence Day 2020 and a Capricorn Lunar Eclipse

Below is a DC Horoscope of the July 5, 2020 Lunar Eclipse @13Cap37 across the 4/10 Security and Career axis. Perfecting at 12:44:17 am edt, America's natal Sun (13Can19) is 'eclipsed' even more closely than it was during the 3 North July 2, 2019 Solar Eclipse @10Can37 and you know the turmoil, changes, and disruptive events that ensued for US leadership in the summer of 2019 and beyond. (Exs: Trump's "perfect call' to Ukraine's President Zelenskiy, military and humanitarian aide to Ukraine withheld which benefited Russia, Trump's whistle blower saga still ongoing against the law that protects their identities, plus, Trump's impeachment in 2020!), plus other lunations, some stronger than others. (New and Full Moons may sometimes disrupt and/or reveal secrets much as eclipses like to do.)

And naturally, all Cancer and Capricorn eclipses relate to issues of authority, responsibility, ambition, use of power and control, family and security matters, and/or patriotism, both real and pretended. Plus, commerce, trade, and investment matters are often involved as well, and we should also include the potential for Moon-Saturn influences which may concern health.

Then came the 3 South December 26, 2019 Solar Eclipse with its "traumatic transformation" vibes (Brady) under which we now chafe in 2020 at least until the Summer Solstice 2020 Solar Eclipse (linked, below). And I'll add here a link to a previous post concerning the Spring Equinox 2020 Chart because it's 'good for' the entire year.

So here's the horoscope I've (somewhat snarkily) entitled, Happy Independence Day America 2020. (US Solar Return 2020 perfects July 4th at 4:58:57 pm edt--still with a Capricorn Moon and suggesting some 'unpleasant circumstances'.) Please enlarge the image to read my study notes if you wish and note that this Lunar Eclipse's Syzygy Moon is its 'Prenatal' Solar Eclipse ('PE') @00Can21; 4 North themes are penned upon the center of the chart:

So between the June 5, 2020 Lunar Eclipse @15Sag20 (not shown but linked, below) and the July 5th Lunar Eclipse you see, above, comes the Summer Solstice Eclipse 2020 which is Annular yet heralds significant world events with its tinge of 4 North influences. Chillingly, we might wonder if the spread of China's tragic coronavirus contagion disrupting the supply chain to the rest of the world is implicated here due to its potential for interrupting global financial markets. That could do it. Maybe this post should have opened with that.

And so, after studying these 2019 and 2020 eclipse horoscopes and typing this post, I must second Brad Friedman of The BradBlog the way he always ends his podcasts--with a wistful, Good Luck World.
