Campaign 2024: The Biden-Trump Debates

by Jude Cowell, D.A.R. partisan for democracy

The lack of Live audiences for both the June 27th and September 10th Biden-Trump debates will favor the quietly spoken President Biden while Trump's habitual bombastic overtalks and disruptive allegations will have not their usual usefulness for creating skewed sound bites. Lies from either debater will be called out by moderators, one hopes, making the events closer to what debates once were when policies and facts were stars of the show.

If this is accomplished, American voters will be informed on the issues prior to Election Day 2024 - what a grand idea! Plus, differences between the characters of the two men will be made obvious for the confused voter, and for those who stay busy working to pay bills and care for their families. Meanwhile, both debaters are seniors so the playing field on that score is level and therefore, moot.

Of course, this is if a certain felonious debater doesn't pull out prematurely because he and his staffers realize their mistake agreeing to such debate conditions. In his podcast episode from May, The Mop-Up's David Feldman says as much as he discusses Why Trump Will Lose Both Debates to Biden along with other topics and news of the day (#1550 audio only, shown below). David is known to be plain-spoken so beware if your feelings are easily trampled!

Now here is a previously published dual image of the June 27, 2024 Biden-Trump Debate and their September 10, 2024 event, assuming that one or both debates occur:

If held, both debates will occur under 8 North "vivid dreams and visions" influences of the Great American Eclipse conjunct Chiron (19Ari24) which manifested on April 8, 2024. (Also shown is the 8 North of 1986 which suggests a cosmic link back to Reagan's policies and/or events.) Astro-notes concerning cosmic conditions during both the 2024 Biden-Trump Debates are available for the curious.

So which "dream" for our nation's future are We the People having? A dream of democracy and the rule of law?

Or a nightmare of dystopian strong-armed paternalism in which women are slavish baby incubators and r*pe victims while misguided theocrats strut?

Libertarians Pick Chase Oliver

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

As most US voters may agree, third party presidential candidates tend to skew election results so now that 38-year-old Libertarian Chase Oliver has been selected as the party's 2024 nominee after 7 rounds of voting on Sunday (5/26/24), I suppose it could behoove us if the Trump-heckling Libertarian Party candidate receives a quick glance at his noon natal planets and the New Moon which perfected on the day of his birth.

However, if my luck holds, this may be the only mention of Mr. Oliver here on Stars Over Washington but we'll have to see as the November 2024 Elections approach like an oncoming train.

Chase Oliver August 16, 1985 Nashville, TN; hour unknown

So below you see a dual image of Oliver's speculative noon chart (lower left) and his New Moon horoscope (@23Leo28 at 5:05:32 am CDT August 16, 1985 Nashville, TN; upper right); his Prenatal Solar Eclipse Series ('PE") is the 5 North and its visionary themes are penned on; also listed is the last 5 North which occurred @20Gemini on June 10, 2021:

Besides the New Moon in Leo, notable in the realm of politics is a Mercury-Mars Conjunction also in Leo, indicating a tendency toward holding strong political opinions which may be expressed (although his Mercury is Rx so perhaps he restrains himself), energized thinking, and perhaps an ability to put ideas into action.

As for the New Moon (if born after its perfection, then it's his Syzygy Moon), we might consider it to have similar influences as a Solar Eclipse and if so, the Saturn square to the New Moon suggests a late bloomer for whom a lack of discipline impedes progress unless and until he learns to take on responsibilities - and perhaps he has. Then a trine from Neptune hints that there are spiritual assets available to Chase Oliver, along with hints of his having metaphysical interests.

Meanwhile, Jupiter Rx in Aquarius and Pluto, strong in delving Scorpio, are Angular in both speculatively timed horoscopes in rigid Fixed signs and I suspect that this powerful duo will be worth keeping an eye as November nears - especially because of the fact that the New Moon @24Leo conjuncts the Pluto-Chiron midpoint of Plutocracy which may have some influence upon his apparent rise to some measure of power in 2024.

Biden-Trump Debates 2024

Horoscopes: Biden-Trump Debates 2024

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

As you've heard, news sources are reporting that the Biden-Trump Debates of 2024 will he held in Atlanta, Georgia at CNN headquarters on June 27, 2024 9:00 pm, televised but with no Live audience, while the second debate is set for September 10, 2024 to be hosted on-air by ABC News, streaming via the ABC News app, and on Hulu.

So despite the possibility that the debate schedule could change or be canceled all together, here are the two Debate Horoscopes with my messy notes penned on.

Lower left is Debate #1 set for June 27, 2024 Atlanta, Georgia, and upper right is Debate #2 announced for September 10, 2024; both events occur under the influence of the Total 8 North 'Great American Eclipse' of dreams and visions, plus, transit Pluto at a critical degree dips back into Capricorn in time for the second debate while transit Neptune is at critical degree during the first debate and is final dispositor of both charts:

The Public Mood: Sagittarius, Then Pisces

Marked on the charts you'll find brief notes concerning the public mood, primarily a reference to the American people. Both signs for Luna suggest moodiness and other difficult conditions which may alternate between positive and negative.

Debating Mercury in Cancer, Then Virgo

In June, Mercury the messenger planet travels through Moon-ruled Cancer where patriotism, nationalism, tribalism, rhetoric, commerce, security, and self-protection tend to express. We should note that Cancer is the sign of Trump's natal Mercury which always ties in his problematic Mercury-Neptune square.

Then in September, speedy Mercury in Virgo is all about facts, details, logic, research, practicality, criticism, and/or cooperation. Notably, President Biden's natal Mercury is in deep-thinking Scorpio, an intuitive Water sign, as is the more commerce-adjacent sign of Cancer.

Well, there are several other significant factors in both charts worth our notice but this is all the time I care to spend on the topic for now since the debate schedule could turn out to be moot. So Thanks a Bunch for reading this far, if you've managed! jc

Biden SOTU 2024: Bound to Succeed!

A SOTU 2024 Astro-Review

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

Last night's SOTU Address to a joint session of Congress was delivered in fiery fashion by President Joe Biden who, some pundits say, will get him re-elected. Unlike his past SOTUs, President Biden didn't ask the malcontent Republicans to join him in legislative tasks to boost the country, instead he forcefully called them out on just about every issue they truculently oppose. With satisfaction I can type that Republicans' frilly gnatzie underpants were showing!

SOTU 2024 in Balsamic Lunar Phase: Prophetic

Citing a positive vision for our nation's future, Joe Biden symbolically reached ahead toward the promises of the visionary Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024 of prophetic dreams, and claimed them to include in his bracing, forward-looking speech. Combative, yes, (his natal Saturn-Uranus conjunction came in handy!) and we can see these facets in midpoint pictures with the North Node of public contact in pioneering Aries at apex; penned on the chart, look for NN = Saturn-Uranus midpoint: combative energy, but also NN = Sun-Jupiter: new plans that feel "bound to succeed" (N. Tyl):

Above: SOTU 2024 9:27 pm est (lower left, Hour of Sun) and SOTU 2024 10:34 pm est (upper right, Hour of Mars); timings used from my phone's time stamp, yours may differ slightly.

Other astro-notes are listed on the charts for the curious including President Biden's natal Mars @12Scorpio rising as he ended his SOTU address--and with transit Jupiter in obstinate, often greedy Taurus opposing his Mars, a challenging opposition that will soon pass from Jupiter's Sabian Symbol word picture: "A Man Handling Baggage."

Well, I'd have to say that last night, Mr. Biden "handled" the dead-weight Republicans very well, those who refuse to govern and only pretend allegiance to America. Yet the quarrels won't end for it's Campaign 2024, after all.

And one, perhaps the major, issue the President has to improve upon is his outward support of Netanyahu's brutality against the Palestinian people and thousands of Michigan voters' recent protest against Biden's public stance--notwithstanding his workings behind the scenes toward a ceasefire in Gaza. See upper right corner for the Nemesis (divine foe) conjunction with Niobe (grieving mothers), both lingering in retrograde, for the Israeli-Palestinian paradox, the inability to forgive leading to endless acts of revenge, has caused strife and suffering in the world for as long as anyone can remember.

A Change of Perspective for Election 2024!

So now it's been confirmed that the Venus Election Cycle may be on the Democrats' side after all. Why? Because with election Venus in Sagittarius, sign of the outsider or stranger, the Venusian forecast is for a rival of the incumbent to be victorious this November, and there have been only a couple of exceptions through the years. But now that it's obvious that it's to be a Biden-Trump match-up and Herr Trump is running as "an incumbent," his Democratic rival is just as likely to win the presidency! Even more likely, if we-the-voters do our parts by turning out in massive numbers to Vote Blue for democracy on November 5, 2024. It's not hyperbole to say that our childrens' futures are on the line - and with women voters, a Biden victory can be assured and, along with House and Senate victories for Democrats, Roe v Wade will be restored along with womens' rights.

So in closing, here's a clear-eyed, plain-spoken, don't-miss podcast episode concerning last night's SOTU 2024 from the excellent David Feldman helpfully giving us The Mop-Up.

More astro-notes can be found in my previous post on Biden's SOTU Address 2024, written before the 9:00 pm start time was announced, and with Spica rising at 9:00 pm--still a symbolic chart for SOTU 2024, but it took several minutes for his glad-handing through the chamber (his old stomping ground) to lead President Biden to the podium where he began to speak at 9:27 pm!

Could American Politicians Be Running Drugs Over Border? - clip

Speaking of America's "crisis at the border," a very interesting discussion occurred recently between Thom Hartmann and a caller to his show:

Astrologically, a planetary combination which relates closely to drug use, abuse, trafficking, and smuggling, is the organized crime duo of Neptune and Pluto which met in Great Conjunction three times in 1891 and 1892 - conjunct US 1776 Uranus ("going to extremes with drugs" - Munkasey). See Drug smuggling in the US goes back to the 19th century (history.com).

Then there's a previous post from 2022 concerning the topic of illegal substances and Tricky Dick Nixon's cynical use of the issue for selfish political purposes - just as Trump intends to use conditions at the US-Mexico border as a talking point in his 2024 campaign rhetoric against President Biden:

Nixon's "War On Drugs" scam must end, an improvement which may not comport with drug smugglers of the political persuasion.

Another Great American Eclipse coming in April 2024

On April 8, 2024 Another Great American Eclipse Zooms Across the Country

by Jude Cowell

Sorry about this post of forewarning, folks!

On the topic of prominent solar eclipses, you'll remember the most recent Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @28Leo52 in the 1 North Saros Series which was visible in 48 states and 'split' the US from Oregon to South Carolina. It tied in closely to the former guy in the White House at that time - divisive as he was and is - and echoed his 'MAGA' propaganda slogan. Needless to say, Leonine pride, arrogance, and vanity were not avoided and difficult karma was created as a result.

The next such Total eclipse visible in the US will occur in Mars-ruled Aries (@19:24 conjunct Chiron 19:24!) so that the eclipse's expression involves issues of courage, enthusiasm, and daring. Bold confrontation of circumstances, plus, leadership and initiative will be on society's menu with our problems viewed as challenges. Competition will be highly charged (ex: US presidential race 2024) by overly aggressive, headstrong individuals quick to anger. Note that Chiron @19Ari24 nears its position in America's July 4 1776 chart/s ("21Aries" = "A Pugilist Entering the Ring.")

A Few 2024 Eclipse Details and the NMSZ

As for the path of totality of the Total Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024 in the 8 North Saros Series ('dreams and visions'), it will enter the US from Mexico at the Texas border and speed into Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. However, its maximum duration of 4M29S will be experienced near the city of Nazon, Durango, Mexico. Here's the eclipse horoscope set for Washington DC:

Now from eclipse lore of years past, we might be tempted to expect dire consequences from a Total Solar Eclipse especially when made more concerning by an accompanying natural event such as a strong earthquake. Regretfully I must inform you, if you've not noticed before now, that this could possibly be the case but only if the New Madrid Fault finally erupts with a quake as has been predicted over the years. Check it out for yourself if you wish because some of the same states are on the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) list that appear on the eclipse list, above:

Damage from a New Madrid Earthquake, if one occurs, threatens parts of several states - alphabetically they are: Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and Tennessee.

So as I've typed here multiple times through the years, America is my only nag in the race, so my hope and prayer is that our country dodges the worst effects, if any, of such a cosmic synchronicity.
