GOP kittens tangled in own yarn? Their YOD says, Yes!

Republican Kittens and Jupiter the Thespian 12.22.11

by Jude Cowell

Sometimes when people try to be 'too clever by half' they end up out-doing themselves instead of the people they work so hard to best. At least, my hope is that this is the case with the current Political Theater now showing on a Capitol Hill whose hijinks threaten to mess with Christmas 2011 for millions of disappointed Americans.

So far, no wrapping is needed for we can clearly see that the American people's gift from the GOP as we enter 2012 is to be held hostage to ideological zealotry and an oath taken to what they consider a higher authority than the American people: Grover Norquist, famous for his no-tax-no-government psychosis of futurist utopianism.

Click 'Grover Norquist' to view his natal horoscope where you can see the elusive, mask-wearing Sun/Neptune conjunction which is now being restricted by transiting Saturn in late Libra and forming a midpoint picture--n Sun/Neptune = tr Saturn: having the discipline to shape reality through dreams (of drowning babies in bathwater--jc): persistence in working toward dreams and ideals; frustrations in attaining goals (Munkasey.)

Yes, the realism and accountability of Saturn more clearly identifies and calls to task Mr. Norquist's ego-based (Sun) other-worldly dreams (Neptune) of complete control (Saturn) over Washington politicians, policies, plans, and ideals (Mercury and Jupiter.)

And current planetary energies include the oily special-interest, behind-the-door devils' deals made by the head lobbyist for the Keystone XL Pipeline whose name would be...Grover Norquist.

Did you hear that Hades has frozen over? For even Republican strategist and Turdblossom Karl Rove has told the GOP to cut bait and move beyond the December 2011 tax cut stalemate. Wow.

Frustration Creates Impasse! And It Shows in GOP Progressions

During the US Congress' debt ceiling-default-credit downgrade fiasco of late July-early August 2011, you may remember that a horoscope of the Republican Party's Secondary Progressions was posted to SO'W showing a crisis-riddled YOD pattern between Mercury, Jupiter, and Ascendant which has now evolved into the tangled yarn of political strategy that GOP leaders now, some say, must extricate themselves from, thanks in large part to the gridlock agenda of Tea Party members along with betrayal issues between Speak John Boehner and the 'Judas' standing behind him, Eric Cantor, if what some say is true about their rivalry.

(You may wish to check out the natal horoscope of Eric Cantor which contains a money/ideology related YOD pattern between Sun, Jupiter, and Neptune.)

Well, the 'grand ideas and plans' of Mercury/Jupiter at the base of the YOD does seem to have GOP knickers in a twist--and since I posted the above chart, their Secondary Progressed ('Sec') Ascendant--the Party itself--has reached a 29th crisis-critical degree (29Gem+) which points to the current impasse concerning the payroll tax cut extension, unemployment insurance extension, and the poison pill provisions that certain industries slipped into the bill--all of which shows symptoms of GOP ideological illness and a meeting at the crossroads at least partially described by the party's Sec YOD.

Now I agree that the US government has become an overgrown gorilla yet under the guiding hand of current ideologues, 'anti-government' turns out to be a cover for 'anti-society' as more and more Americans fall underneath the weight of politicians working against us, not for us.

Can Jupiter in Venus-Ruled Taurus Beg to Differ?

With the potential for a marred-by-politics holiday approaching, Astrology tells a brightening tale of Republican Party significator Jupiter about to Direct Station on Christmas Day 2011, in money sign Taurus (@ 00:22.) Will this forward move soon be expressed on the physical plane by a Republican change of strategy?

Looks like it! And it seems we may be able to pin our dreams for social improvement and congressional bill passing on that important turn of direction and hope that jolly Jupiter, planet of abundance, material gain, and ideology--and one of our solar system's two societal planets--will enter 2012 with a forward tilt and workable, cooperative plans for solving our nation's problems caused in large part by the severe and growing imbalance of income inequality now bedeviling the hard working American people.

So although Jupiter is the patron planet of actors and acting (and Capitol Hill politicians are more thespians than problem-solvers), it's actually We The People who deserve an abundant end-of-year holiday--from the self-destructiveness of the US Congress and its current panoply of useful idiots.

Is the US infested with the Hegelian Dialectic?

In an attempt to make sense of the mess the US is in, the following article link is posted for your consideration with an excerpt:

The Hegelian Dialectic is designed to get us into a frenzied defense or offense of a particular idea or thesis. The natural outgrowth of the original idea is the opposite idea or anti-thesis, which will breed it’s own defense and offense. The predetermined answer of the Elite will be the synthesis of both sides of the conflict.

In America, the most familiar Hegelian Dialectic is the Republican and Democratic parties. On the right we have the Corporatist, Fascist, Republicans that are pro debt, pro war and pro corporation. On the left, we have the Socialist, Communist, Democrats that are pro tax, pro social issues and pro labor. Both of these two fight back and forth every year in a contrived scripted dramaknown as Washington politics. The synthesis, of these two seemingly opposite ideas, is this middle of the road “lesser of two evils” mess we have now. Read more....


Now there's a basic reason I've often mentioned on this blog Washington's Capitol Hill Theater - it's all theater, dahlink. They don't govern in Washington, they manipulate us while serving their corporate masters. And their illusory D v R-lib v con-blue v red script keeps we-the-people divided and conquered. So please stop following a political 'party' and follow OUR best interests - for someone needs to.

And yes, I heard that President Obama has announced his 2012 candidacy online which was to be expected. However, I don't care who plays the role of Mouthpiece-in-Chief, it's how cruelly they dissolve our republic and sovereignty, destroy our freedom documents, ignore our social contract between the generations, and further disenfranchise the American people - those things matters most to me.

How inconvenient the Tea Party must have seemed to them for a time! But they quickly recovered when the Koch Brothers and others took over what was originally a grassroots movement. Now, like 99% of Washington politicians, the Tea Party has become a tool of corporatism.

What are two of Corporatism's prime signatures in Mundane Astrology charts? The combo of Pluto/Chiron, and asteroid Cupido (The Family; The Syndicate.)

For further reading on such topics as Hegelian philosophy, here's a rabbit hole to follow which includes an image of the modern natal horoscope of the 'New World Order' because that's really the power elite's 'end game' which we're talking about here.

Government Shutdown New Moon 3.4.11 w Shutdown 1995

Thinking of a potential government shutdown on March 4, 2011 if Washington politicians can't do any better, I searched for info on the last time they came to outs (with the rest of us stuck in the middle.)

Government shutdown 1995 actually occurred in two clumps: Nov 14 through Nov 19, 1995 and from Dec 16, 1995 to Jan 6, 1996. I remember the disgust we-the-people felt that they couldn't do things any better than that, and the relief when the varmints infesting Capitol Hill resumed business.

The primary combatants in 1995 were President Bill Clinton and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich after Clinton refused to sign the budget bill of the Republicans.

For a glimmer of the budget shutdown issues entrancing Washington on December 7, 1995 I scouted out a video from the C-SPAN Video Library for you. It's about 3 hours long but is worth the time if you're interested. As you see by the date, the program was broadcast in between the two shutdown episodes and it includes several issues such as a discussion of the Gingrich ethics probe. An appearance by Sander Levin is worth noting as well.

One important midpoint picture from late 1995 into 1996 pops out:

Saturn-Pluto = Neptune disguised uses of power; defects in planning for important activities (my fret: that in 2011, they've refined their methods); improbable effects from excessive activities of the past; unstable life situation because of the inexplicable, because of fear; falsehoods, lies, frauds; a desire to harm others secretly; immorality; instability; shattered nerves. (Munkasey; Tyl; Ebertin; any, all, or none may apply, as below.)

There were several difficult transits to the US natal horoscope in 1995 and 1996. Some of the major ones are:

Tr Saturn opposes n Neptune 22Vir25: hidden agendas and secret activities are ill-tolerated and can paralyze circumstances; unfavorable time for financial speculation and for learning the truth. (exact: May 13, 1995, Aug 31, 1995, and Feb 3, 1996.)

Tr Uranus conjuncts n Pluto Rx 27Cap33: abrupt changes to familiar ways of life; situations are forced requiring adjustments; disturbing conditions create hidden fears; transitions interrupt past areas of control and manipulation. (exact: Feb 5, 1995, Aug 15, 1995, and Nov 25, 1995.)

Tr Neptune opposes n Mercury Rx 24Can12: facts and figures are confusing or elusive; accurate records are prone to error, deception, or loss; fanatic ideas take hold; networks of colleagues or friends become undependable or disappear altogether along with goals. (Their Goal? To make Clinton look bad to the American people just as the potential shutdown on March 4, 2011 is designed to trip up President Obama - along with the GOP's general take-over plan for a one-ruling-party government, then as now.)

This transit began didn't become exact until April 2, 1996; there were five hits, the last one occurring on Nov 14, 1997:

Tr Neptune conjuncts n Pluto Rx 27Cap33: dissolution of power; treachery, poison, or plague can remove the current leader or the system.

As you know, Bill Clinton was re-elected and sworn in for his second term on January 20, 1997 in spite of the R v D political theater which involved a shutdown of the US government - and Clinton's sexcapades. Bill was a wily cuss, wasn't he?

Will They Shut Us Down Again?

The potential shutdown date is March 4, 2011, and on that afternoon a New Moon occurs @ 13Pis56, in 8th house of Shared Resources and Debt with the chart set for the Capitol Building. Also in 8th H are Mercury, confused or deceptive in Pisces, and disruptive rebel Uranus at a troubling 29th degree of critical conditions (29Pis36 direct.)

ASC 17Leo19 brings chart-ruler Sun's applying aspects into focus yet there is only one (shared by the Moon, of course): an inconjunct from Saturn Rx 16Lib02 in 3rd H.

Sun inconjunct restrictive Saturn, planet of government, indicates taking advantage of others or of being taken advantage of; it describes a taking-things-one-step-at-a-time condition with a vibe of eagerness to be accepted by others. That Saturn is Rx may be help or hindrance to the question of a shutdown since delays are indicated. Unfortunately for the American people, the delay may describe the cessation of governmental workings.

Moon inconj Saturn shows undercurrents of guilt, uneasiness, and exploitation. The Moon in a mundane chart represents the people, as you know; representing the people on Capitol Hill has become an elusive goal for our recalcitrant politicians.

Now the New Moon falls at apex of two midpoints: one, Mercury/Mars is one of strong opinions and with Sun there, we find great determination to succeed; with Moon, we have a potential for clearing the air by talking things out, and emotional quarrels.

And last but not least: the Uranus-Neptune pair of enlightenment, the new world order culprits from their Great Conjunction/s of 1993 ('18Cap' = POLITICAL POWER = neg: smug or strong-armed paternalism, which to me sounds like the 2011 version of the Republican Party forcing their methods, fanaticism, prejudices, and agenda upon our nation.)

Uranus-Neptune = Sun: impassivity; impressionability; lack of vitality (uh-oh); vaunted self-regard.

Uranus-Neptune = Moon: a sense of being on the right track to do one's best; emotional convictions, real or imagined.

Well, that's a brief astro-peek at the issue of government shutdown 1995 v 2011. Let's close with the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon of March 4, 2011:

'14Pisces' = "A Lady in Fox Fur"...TASTEFULNESS...

positive expression: high accomplishment through a consistent representation of the self's assets in the best possible light;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: amoral opportunism.

Hidden Agenda 2011

The 3 days prior to the New Moon and just after are the Dark of the Moon when secret activities and deals can easily take place under the table. That we-the-people would be harmed by a shutdown with 2011 financial conditions so dire for so many is a given, but we'll see whether a shutdown of Capitol Hill Theater proportions actually occurs and which political party suffers most for it during Campaign 2012.

112th Congress = "Swords" vs "Torches"?

In his weekly radio address today President Obama has called for Republicans to stop their symbolic battles, battles which seem to this blogger to be meant in part as a salve to the Tea Partisans watching GOPers closely for backtracking on their promises to do things differently than Congress' previous sorriness.

And the millions of dollars that GOP 'symbolism' has cost the US taxpayer during only half a week of this session belies the Republican Party's whines over the national debt. Guess they think our bucks are worth their gamble and they (and Dems) certainly have much past experience with such cynical calculations.

Now if you, dear reader, are familiar with the Sabian Symbols for each degree of the zodiac (360 degrees), you know of one that's quite esoteric in its imagery and which may apply here, namely 'A Symbolical Battle Between the "Swords" and the "Torches".' (Rudhyar.)

Let's examine the meaning of this symbol to see if anything shakes out concerning the current Capitol Hill Political Theater the GOP has been making (what they hope is) political hay with.

Rudhyar's 'Keynote: Refusing to depend upon the past, the seeker turns warrior, fighting anew the eternal "Great War".' (A World War I reference. jc)

Now I won't quote all that Dane Rudhyar wrote about the degree - the Bodhi Tree and spiritual light vs ego-will (though ego-will and global-ruling ideology are the basis of GOP desperation to win back the White House) - however, his last words concerning '17Tau' may make some sense to us within the political realm of Washington and the 112th Congress' first week of symbolic mummery:

(This symbol) "suggests that salvation is attained through the emergent individual's readiness to face all issues as if there were only two opposed sides. So teaches the Bhagavad-Gita. This is the dharma of this stage of human evolution: a stage of POLARIZATION OF VALUES. (An Astrological Mandala.)

In his The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones gives '17Tau' the Keyword: 'RESOLUTION...

positive expression: high organizational skill and an ability to bring the magic of understanding to any specific difficulty;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: a loss of self-competence through the conflicting compulsion of necessity and desire'.

(Blog note: though I seldom think to mention it, I am the very varmint who adds "unconscious/shadow side" to Jones' 'negative' expression of the symbols because it seems more descriptive. jc)

Perhaps Adriano Carelli has something to say about '17Tau' in his The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac:

"The vision St. Thomas of Aquino had while trying to fathom the mystery of God's unity and trinity; a child trying to drain the ocean with a pitcher."

Carelli's explanation of this symbol includes: "I do not need your advice, I can make mistakes myself!" And, in speaking of a native with this degree prominent, he states, "He is in for unceasing, often wasted labors which will not make him move a step forward. There is a guilty light-mindedness; the native will believe that he can solve single-handed and in his own way certain problems which impose on natural laws, as those of economics, dynamics and the like."

Hmmm. If we replace 'a child' with 'new congress member' and trying to drain the 'ocean' with the word, 'swamp' (which Washington DC is built upon), we may be on to something: new congress members wasting labor and believing they can single-handedly and in their own way drain the swamp of Washington, a campaign promise so old it's gray around the muzzle. And all they really have at their disposal is a pitcher!

For more details on the current state of our Congress, I looked at outer planet transits to the US Congress natal horoscope (Nov 17, 1800) and found that confusing, deceptive, delusional, fraudulent (though often inspired) Neptune is slightly more active than Uranus or Pluto at this time.

Neptune square (90 degrees = blockages; obstacles) natal Sun 25Sco: self-image is infused with disorientation, confusion, and a sense of unreality; it's hard to know how to satisfy one's ego demands or where to direct one's will power; positions of leadership, integrity, honesty, principles, and standards are difficult to sustain or attain; if determined and capable, one realizes that what seems to be reality actually is not (it's only Capitol Hill Theater, dahlink!)

Neptune opposite natal Saturn 24Leo: one's mature judgment, strength of authority, and hard work are threatened by illegal actions (like 2 Rs not taking their congressional oath because of attending their own fundraiser next door?), bankruptcy, fraud, deception, and unknown or disillusioned people (!); severe challenges test the ability or willingness to overcome obstacles, or to squelch inner fears; past traditions and structures become misguided, ambiguous, or subverted; previous responsibilities may disappear or dissolve with nothing good apt to take their place.

Neptune conjunct n Pluto 2Pis: power dissolves; treachery or poison can remove the current system of power and control; circumstances may allow the rise of those with religious, psychic, or spiritualist powers (who are not witches, one presumes.)

The only major aspect of Uranus now to Congress' natal chart is its coming opposition to its natal position: Congress will have a midlife crisis all through 2011 (March, November, and December)! This Uranus/Uranus opposition last occurred about 84 years ago: in April 1927, October 1927, and February 1928. The inflationary economics of the late 1920s seem all too familiar, don't they?

Uranus opposite n Uranus 00Lib47 (conjunct US n MC in the Sibly chart): generations clash; oldsters feel outdated by a wave of newcomers (awww!) and there's an unwillingness to give up the unique qualities of one's generation (age group); little meeting of the minds takes place.

(Plus, transiting Jupiter to Aries Point has and will oppose n Uranus, a time of cat-herding when everyone tends to wander off in their own directions so that organizing and scheduling group activities is made difficult; Jupiter increases the effects of Congress' Uranus opposition and its crisis implications.)

Pluto inconjunct n Jupiter 4Leo: significant adjustments are necessary to justify one's knowledge and ideals; feeling overwhelmed about social responsibilities; opportunism; a need to yield to real tasks and be constructive; others may victimize in order to serve their own interests; motives may be murky and there's a requirement to understand one's surroundings more fully.

Pluto square n Uranus: political and intellectual changes occur that benefit a new generation, and questioning their historical implications is appropriate.

Such is the condition of the 112th Congress as seen through an astrological interpreted by this particular blogging gnat of an American. Your on-topic comments and opinions are cordially invited.

Rep Anthony Weiner's Rant in the House (video)

Oh you just know I have to post this rant from Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) from yesterday, right? He's calling out Republicans on blocking a bill that would provide free health care for those affected by the toxins of 9/11/01 and his performance gives new oomph and verve to my assertion that it's all Capitol Hill Theater, dahlink!

Actually, Weiner's asertion that the Republicans' objection to the bill on 'procedural grounds' is to give each other cover makes the point as well - anyway, check out this brief video if you've managed to miss it thus far - Weiner wasn't whining, he was yelling. Me likee.

It also illustrates that the continuing 'anything to make Obama fail' ploy of a frustrated, voted-from-the-White-House GOP isn't serving the American people well unless you're a frustrated GOPer yourself - then you may think it's peachy the way things are (not) going.

Well, if you are (and are for unknown reasons reading this populist, common good blog) then I sarcastically thank you for 8 years of Bush-Cheney and the neocon-Zionist wars that have bankrupted our nation and brought such grief and misery to the Middle East and to so many US soldiers and their families.

Bad show. Bad form. Bad politics.

Sanders' Audit the Fed amendment breathing shallowly

Right now (9:57 am edt) Senator Bernie Sanders is answering callers' questions on C-SPAN's Washington Journal and his Audit the Fed amendment has gained some play today on Capitol Hill.

If the Sanders amendment is allowed to tag along on reform legislation (which so far sounds quite toothless) will it lead to anything useful for the American taxpayer or merely entertain us with yet another trifling performance of the infamous Capitol Hill Theater?

Now here's a post from Jan 2008 which I began with a quote from Senator Sanders and which displays the horoscope (sans my notations) of the *Generation of Materialism, aka the Robber Baron class, which is timed astrologically by the New Moon 8Tau14 of April 28, 1881, as noted by E. Alan Meece in his book Horoscope for the New Millennium.

Click to view the New Moon and the rest of the line-up in Taurus for a Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn (2 - 4 Tau) had been exact on April 18, Venus and Neptune were just beyond conjunction with Venus Rx (13 - 17 Tau), and the plutocracy-corporatism-oppression duo, Pluto and Chiron, were headed toward conjunction as well (16 - 28 Tau) which is a tremendous amount of Taurean energy - great for architects, builders, and gardeners but with greed and intolerance lurking in the shadows.

The New Moon's Sabian Symbol for '9Tau' = "A Christmas Tree Decorated" = SYMBOLIZATION...

positive expression: man's achievement of complete self-satisfaction through a simple sharing of his potentials with his fellows;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: a desire to place people under obligation and to enjoy life's riches without payment in kind. (The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.)

A House of Cards Always Topples

The credit card industry is one example of a concentrated effort to place millions of people 'under obligation' with the lure of easy, instant luxury and the promise of riches that only the Robber Baron and banker classes can truly 'enjoy'.

As I've blogged here previously, it's the Robber Baron class' modern spawn (biological or ideological) who now bedevil our society and undermine it with corruption and greed so out of bounds that the world's financial system has been shoved to the precipice of total collapse...and right on schedule, after they've made their riches by robbing and exploiting others while funneling collective dollars into their private and corporate accounts.

And enriched America made the perfect vehicle.


*As Mr. Meece cites in his book it was Carlton Hayes who coined the term 'generation of materialism.'

Ds call Rs' bluff on joining Public Option - video

Sometimes Capitol Hill Theater can be tres amusing!

Since senators and representatives have been on the public dole with their Cadillac health care all along, the ploy on Thursday (Dec 3) by Senators Coburn and Vitter to further gum up passage of health reform makes a lot of sense: all senators and reps must enroll in the public option program, "no other possibilities, no other choices," said Vitter to The Hill.

But the Rs weren't attempting to make sense, they were proposing an amendment that they assumed the Ds would oppose thus making Dem efforts for a public option seem hypocritical. (Memo to GOP: precious few of you in Congress need help with hypocrisy - you're past and present masters.)

As Senator Coburn said about the Rs' tricky amendment, "It's called leadership. If it's good enough for everybody else, we ought to be leading by example."

Hurrah! Now that would be a novelty on Capitol Hill - leading, and by example, too! Next thing you know, Congress will be retrieving its oversight duties and stepping up to our constitutional plate.

One-upsmanship: by unanimous consent vote, Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Al FRanken (D-MN), and other Ds have been added as co-sponsors of the Republican amendment. Now what do you think are the chances for reform passage with the public option for government reps attached? Nil? Or none?

Hey, wait a minute. If this amendment stands as the bill is ultimately voted up or down, will it be merely one of the reasons that health insurance reform crashes altogether? Hope not. But I think my total lack of trust in my 'elected' officials' good faith on our behalf is showing. Again.

Critical! Next 'Countdown' Free Clinic: Nov 21, Little Rock, AR

Bearing witness to America's health care shortcomings`

Give a listen to an eye witness account, if you missed it Monday evening:`

Video: Countdown with Keith Olbermann, MSNBC, 11.16.09

Next "Countdown Free Clinic" -- Little Rock, AR. -- Saturday, November 21, 2009

The National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC) is the only nonprofit 501c(3) (ID# 56-2273242) organization whose mission is solely focused on the issues and needs of the more than 1,200 free clinics and the people they serve in the United States.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAFC is an effective advocate for the issues and concerns of free clinics, their volunteer workforce of doctors, dentists, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, technicians and other health care professionals, and the patients served by free clinics in communities throughout the nation.

Vision: To be a national voice and essential partner for building a healthy America.


Okay, Capitol Hill politicians, we're down to Health 'Insurance' Reform and some of you are still bucking the idea of an America where decent, timely health care is available to all the nation's citizens at reasonable costs. Now I know many of you have stock portfolios that may suffer a bit if the health, pharma, and insurance industries have their paws slammed in the great cookie jar by new legislation that aids and empowers the common good by putting corporate profits at abeyance. You can afford lower returns on your investments in the health industry sector for you have other lucrative cookie jars at your disposals.

And with my very low opinion of your morals, I believe that population control is part of your plans as you underfeed and un-house millions, prevent lower classes from getting medical care they need (including those made ill from eating chemical-laced foods your other portfolio pals invented), and outsourcing, then failing, to create jobs with which we may attempt to decently support our families.

But putting that belief aside, I ask you now to step out of the way, put controls on health care costs, and repair the health care mess you've allowed and enabled. If you don't step out of the way, your lack of common decency and shriveled humanitarian instincts will continue to hang out like a street walker's frilly bra strap which seems okay by you, for your plans include being ready for the revolution you're working furiously to inspire.

The anti-public-option ruling class should be ashamed that Americans must resort to free clinics and that some patients' conditions are beyond medical intervention due to lack of timely care. To be ashamed indicates you have consciences, yet as many people have remarked in recent years, you apparently have none, only artful rationalizations for your greed and selfishness.

Therefore, you must be led to improve your own karma by those who do have conciences and common good standards, for you made it plain long ago that you consider yourselves above such mundane considerations as being your brother's keeper. There you mess with a Higher Power than your own!

Well, here's a standing question for you from an author whose novels exposed the horrid social conditions of his day, and who expressed himself much better than this gnat of a blogger ever could:

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, socialist and Pulitzer Prize winner (1943) for his novel, Dragon's Teeth.

So how about it, Republicans and GOP handmaidens of the Democratic Party?

As you dawdle and mount political theatrics, human beings are suffering grievously while you meet in your exalted committees which are paid for by the good graces of US taxpayers - some of whom are being forced by painful circumstances to attend the next 'public option' free clinic - if they can find one.

Ronald Reagan bio timeline and Iran-Contra

Look what turned up today as I investigate the highest ranking (Grand Master) Freemason to helm the US Presidency, Gerald Ford - a Ronald Reagan bio timeline with notable quotes, mostly concerning Reagan's Iran-Contra scandal.

You'll find a few details on the Reagans' use of astrologer Joan Quigley, too, but my favorite tidbit has to be a handy reminder of Reagan's testimony before the Tower Commission (referred to as the 'Tower Board meeting' which may be how his handlers termed it to him) concerning the Iran-Contra affair when Reagan thoughtlessly read his stage directions aloud:

"If the question comes up at the Tower Board meeting, you might want to say that you were surprised."

And some people question why I refer on this blog to the mimes and scripts of the US Congress and the rest of Washington politics as Capitol Hill Theater.


Update 4:15 pm edt: having read a few websites and blogs about President Gerald Ford, 33rd degree Mason, I can recommend one to you concerning Ford's membership in the Royal Order of Jesters, a secret society said to be within the Shriners.

This link contains a photo of Gerald Ford in his Paladin fez hat with its tassle, Crescent Moon of the East, and star. It's quite a vision especially to any American voters who may still be under the impression that it's we-the-people who elect our presidents. Cover your kids' eyes though for you'll find mention of the Jesters' favorite "fun" sexual practice - it promotes 'brotherhood' y'see.

Hmmm..."Jesters" where have I found that reference recently?

Why, in the Sabian Symbol for the 2009 Inaugural Moon with the Inaugural chart good for 4 years of a presidential term, that's where. Yes, that's the 2009 Inaugural Moon which represents the people in a national chart.

Well, perhaps you've previously run across one of my posts during Campaign 2008 from October on Barack Obama's huge rally under the Masonic Arch in St. Louis, Missouri when an estimated 100,000 people turned out, wasn't it? Remember the aerial photos?

(And secret societies adore it when the general public pays homage to things they don't really understand are being presented by society members.)

So am I implying that President Obama is a member of, or is closely affiliated with, Freemasonry and perhaps with other secret societies as well?

Of course I am. This is Stars Over Washington, y'all.

Here once again are the symbolic details for '30Sco' as given in The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones (who may have been a Freemason, too, for all I know):

2009 Inaugural Moon 29Sco45...'30Sco' = "The Halloween Jester"...SPONTANEOUSNESS.

Positive expression: a gift for making the desires and ambitions of self not only of interest but of actual value to others;

Negative/unconscious/shadow side: ineptness of self-expression and contempt for established values. #

My boldface. Actually theirs are pretty bold faces, too, even with silly tassledy hats on.

Sotomayor resigns from ladies' version of Bohemian Grove - oh! and her nom was voted up today

Since the Senate Judiciary Committee just voted Yes today (13 to 6) on Sonia Sotomayor's Supreme Court nomination with the full vote probably sceduled for next week, I googled 'Sonia Sotomayor + Bohemian Grove' to see if her name popped up and whaddaya know?

The judge is said to have resigned recently from her membership in the ladies' version of this group which met in California last week for their annual shindig of satanic rituals so it wouldn't disgruntle anyone voting for her - with their constituents, I imagine.

Some of them may be members of the Grove themselves! Perhaps a fully revealed membership list is in order, si?

Scroll below to my July Archives for a previous post on the Bohemian Grove or click here - their meeting was held during last week's Solar Eclipse.

Of the GOP, only Republican Senator Lindsey Graham voted for Sotomayor's SCOTUS benching - such Capitol Hill Theater, dahlink, in our Masonic Capitol Building on The Hill!

White House presser 6.23.09: a little Astrology

As reported on TV's Nightline, President Obama will hold a press conference in the Rose Garden Tuesday (6.23) at 12:30 pm edt with America's natal Neptune in Virgo rising, and the transiting Sun/Mercury midpoint at Midheaven, the Goal/Aspiration Point of the chart.

Sun/Mercury = Mc: standing by one's convictions and speaking up for oneself; an intellectual worker; a businessman.

This will also place Mr. Obama's natal Mars rising since it is conjunct US natal Neptune...

Mars/Neptune = ASC: instability; weakness; termination of associations or unions; sharing sorrows with others. (Iranian protesters? DC Metrorail crash victims and their families? jc)

The presser will be held during a Saturn Hour though Saturn 16Vir06 (Democratic Party) has risen and is in the behind-the-scenes 12th house.

ASC 23Vir54, so chart-ruler Mercury (pressers; announcements; speeches; reporters; communications; trade and commerce, etc) is in 9th house at 12Gem01, conjunct the Descendant in the US natal 'Sibly' chart (5:10 pm lmt, you know the date); Mercury makes only one applying aspect in the chart which clues us in to how the presser will proceed...a square to Saturn (4A05.)

This indicates some difficulty in communicating one's authority and control of matters, yet Mercury has natural abilities being positioned in one of its own signs, Gemini, the communicator's sign.

The dissociate T-Square is still within orb to Uranus 26Pisc36 which is setting (Desc 23Pisc54), so again we may consider the midpoint picture formed as the Sun/Pluto opposition points to apex Uranus, the reformer...

Sun/Pluto = Uranus: sudden changes; rebellion; reform; carrying out fanatic reforms without regard for oneself; sudden adjustment to new circumstance; arrest. (all midpt pics: Tyl; Ebertin.)

There are a few other midpoint pics of interest, one of which affects 2009's US Inaugural Sun (the president) and Mercury 00AQ+ - it's the plutocracy; the desire for power; desire to exploit the masses; pursuit of fanatical aims; qualities of leadership; wastefulness team of Jupiter and Pluto:

Jupiter/Pluto = Sun: using extraordinary physical or mental powers; the creation of magical effects; use of strong personality power; keeping things within one's own grasp; doing well with all resources.

Jup/Plu = Mercury: promotion of a cause; influence and persuasion; the gift of oration; a propaganda campaign (seemingly the role of any US presidency.)

Jup/Plu = transiting North Node (public contacts): working with others for success; joint aspirations; political activity; relationship to the masses; far-reaching associations.

Pluto/Mc = Uranus: sudden attainment of aims with irresistible power; publicity; sudden changes or shifts of position; prudence; endurance; organizing ability; nervousness; impatience (the American people have become impatient and nervous. jc)

And there is another T-Square in the chart for 6.23.09 at 12:30 pm edt...

Uranus/ASC = Mc: a restless character changing his/her objectives in life; making changes; cooperation in the technological and/or industrial sphere; major change potential in job status.

Well, I don't know what the US Chamber of Commerce (and what are characterized as other Obama opponents) would say about this chart or post, but I for one wish they'd butt out of the White House's efforts to improve the lot of the average American. Share a little of the wealth, greedy plutocrats! We don't crave your fancy cakes, but nutritious bread for our children would be only fair and humane.

Yet I say this assuming, of course, that reforms are being honestly pursued in good faith, for the players of Capitol Hill Theater seldom get around to legislating practical changes and laws that result in real improvements for we-the-people while America's plutocrats always fare ever so well.


As always, midpoint pictures may operate in an any, all, or none manner.

And speaking of America as plutocracy:

"Of all forms of tyranny the least attractive and the most vulgar is the tyranny of mere wealth, the tyranny of plutocracy." - John Pierpont Morgan

"I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country." - Thomas Jefferson

So plutocracy is vulgar and defiant - a badly intentioned combination. No wonder we've landed in such deep hot water. It's knowing which shadowy figures to hold accountable that's our puzzlement - just as the power elite bandits intended. jc

TARP funds now campaign donations for Congress

Have you heard?

After a tiny respite for public relations effect, the US Congress is once gain accepting campaign donations from bailed-out banks which are again their personal piggybanks at taxpayers' expense - and even corporate-welfared GM and Chrysler are donating big bucks to keep our crooked politicians wallowing in the fatcat clover of Washington.

This is the sort of news that makes anyone (who continues to claim that there is no class warfare against the common man and woman) aware at last of Pluto-Chiron's game of oppression which keeps the disenfranchised down. And please - anyone still under the influence of the 'Rs vs Ds' myth - fuggeddabowdit!

Notice who is in we-the-people's corner - it isn't the US Congress with their Capitol Hill Theater productions that amount to little or nothing of merit, their secret meetings to plot against us, or their freakish 'crowning' of Sun Myung Moon (among many other things we would disapprove of if we knew about them. It's difficult to believe they did it, but you can view the video of the crazy ceremony!)

No, I never forget the Sabian Symbol for America's natal Jupiter, planet of money and ideals: "Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests" ('6 Cancer') - in case I'm ever tempted to doubt what Congress' deeply-held "ideals" really are and where their true loyalties lie.

AIG's CEO Liddy on Capitol Hill 3.18.09

As Congress revs up for Wednesday's performance at the Capitol Hill Theater today, AIG's CEO Edward Liddy makes ready to participate in a shadow play 'duel' with our erstwhile representatives.

Since the out-of-bounds Moon will remain in the adventurous sign of Sagittarius today until 5:18 pm edt, I thought to look at the Sun Pisces-Moon Sag blend to see what's afoot on the political stage - and if anything interesting is peeking out from the frilly undergarments of political thespianism.

Will all actors manage to save their bacon and cover their culpable patooties? Will thongs get themselves in a twist before the curtain lowers? It promises to be an emotionally volatile day, so read on...

Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is a steamy Water-Fire blend that can cleanse, sterilize - and scald. Known for moodiness and passionate emotions, this blend can be courageous and vulnerable at the same time.

The ability to step back and take an impersonal view is lacking and volatility of fanatic proportions makes cool reasoning capacity next to impossible to achieve.

This results in instability and impracticality, two traits the American people often witness coming from Capitol Hill, much to our dismay. Today's congressional sessions may not run smoothly, m'peops with much drama in the script and out own outrage fueling the proceedings.

Yet with Sun in Pisces, Moon in Sagittarius, there exists social awareness and generosity, but perhaps the generosity has already gone into the wrong coffers, many of them in the UK.

Yet today's show must go on so that Congress can look as if it's making efforts on behalf of US taxpayers. The natives are restless and so is the Sun Pisc-Moon Sag combo of energies.

This is a humble and noble blend that judges others' weaknesses generously to the point of being a real sucker for a sob story, so we'll see what justifications Mr. Liddy comes up with.

Sun Pisc-Moon Sag needs to pin itself down to dealing with manageable-sized problems and must pay attention to details so that something productive may result. It's a very creative, poetic blend but when dealing with crooks, embezzlers, and syndicate types, naivete must be avoided.

This blend is shared natally by several notables: Copernicus, Billy Crystal, Jackie Gleason, Victor Hugo, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Rupert Murdoch, and...

Albert Einstein, who said, "The important thing is not to stop questioning."

Quite appropriate for today's Capitol Hill Theater performance, Albert, thanks!

Images for Integration: 'Einstein's Theory of Relativity...A black woman priest in the confessional hears a tale of woe from a white converted scientist and they fall in love.' Sun Sign-Moon Sign by Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

A virtual lovefest isn't on my menu for today's questions and answers, is it on yours?

Now given that in recent days Congress tends to go into evening hours, we see that the Moon reaches World Point 00Cap00 at 5:18 pm edt which changes the atmosphere into Sun Pisc-Moon Cap, a Water-Earth blend...the day goes from steam to mud!

Sun Pisc-Moon Cap's Images for Integration: 'An old freighter chugs toward the port, bringing in the goods...A famous actress leaves her estate to the Actors' Pension Fund.'

(It's very sad for me to note that Natasha Richardson's catastrophic skiing accident could be indicated here and my heart goes out to her and her family at this difficult time.)

Sun Pisc-Moon Cap is shared natally by: George Washington, Samuel Pepys, Percival Lowell, Anais Nin, Philip Roth, Walter Schirra, and Dinah Shore.

Well, the 'goods' have already been distributed by the Bush administration's 'Bailout' heist so whether Congress can call AIG bonuses back to port is doubtful. That Congress can invent some other method of calming the natives remains to be seen.

Ron Paul on Stimulus Bill: video

Ron Paul says there were only 5 copies of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act made available to congressional members which was "business as usual," says Dr. Paul.

Perhaps someone should have snagged the copy that Boehner dropped to the floor in (mock?) contempt.

Rep. Paul is correct on their usual sorry ways, for sure, but they never seem to read - or have their staffers read - the bills they pass anyway (except the parts they may sponsor.)

So if five of them had read the thing before voting, that would be 5 more than usual! And I doubt that Boehner had time to read it before he dropped it.

Ahhh, Capitol Hill Theater...1st act 9:30 am, matinee after lunch.

Capitol Hill vs The People

You may be interested in Romantic Poet's article Democrats planned the financial collapse which covers everything from George Soros and the Cloward-Piven strategy to Rahm Emanuel's 2006 book, The Plan with Nancy Pelosi's Samoan connections basted like a crispy turkey in between.

Her post will make you think!

Yet as both readers of this blog know, I give no hall passes to Dems or Republicans because they're waging us vs them class warfare, the playing field is definitely tilted, and they will *all do what it takes to keep control, power, and obscene amounts of wealth in their own claws.

Why, it's all simply Capitol Hill Theater, Dahlink!


*In the interest of fairness, my usual 1 or 2% exception rule always applies in case a couple of honest Capitol Hillers are not in on the one-world-government agenda and would prefer America to remain America. (I'm being generous, I know, but there it is. You see? Cynicism and generosity can exist side by side. And you thought they couldn't!)

Paulson and Capitol Hill Theater 9.23.08

Have you watched or heard the performances on Capitol Hill today?

The financial wizards are playing their woeful parts, with congressional actors as the slow-downers but the results will tell whether this is a crime of theatrics or whether Congress holds onto what's left of its oversight responsibilities.

Without oversight, American tax payers (apparently the lenders of last resort) will have no confidence that a fair price is being paid. We were vulnerable to Wall Street fraud before and now we're supposed to trust them to solve their own pickle by using our money!

Well, at 9:30 am edt this morning on Capitol Hill, the rising degree was 00Sco44 bringing the natal Sun of the New World Order into the House.

(The great Conjunction of Uranus and Neptune marks the official NWO chart I use - all through 1993 they met...I use the third and final conj of Oct 24, 1993, 1:11 pm EDT, Wash DC, as the entity's natal chart.)

In the NWO's natal chart, Asc = 12Cap52, so right away we see that the current position of Jupiter 12Cap55, sits fortuitously upon NWO's natal Asc. In fact, the weekend of Sept 7, when moneybags Jupiter performed his Direct Station 12Cap32, he held round-the-clock meetings as the bailout charade began.

Today's Libra stellium of Mercury, Mars, and a 29 degr Venus (which had just arisen at 9:30 am) is nestled near NWO's natal Jupiter 26Lib25, which is, of course, near n Sun 1Sco19. In its natal chart, Midheaven is at 6Sco08.

With the NWO's Uran/Neptune conj rising in its natal chart at 18Cap33, we know that tr Jupiter will be triggering the conj mightily in mid-November...

Ura/Nep = Jupiter: relying on others; joy of hope or of expectations; a strange luck or good fortune; accepting gifts without thinking about it; gaining new courage to face life again; good luck coming out of nowhere; rejuvenation of the spirit.

How jolly for them.

At 9:30 am in Washington today, the Sun 00Lib53 conjs US natal Mc in the Sibly chart and transiting asteroid Hebe is there, too. Hebe = how one enables the egocentricity and emotional immaturity of others; co-dependency; serving. Hebe does have a 'Hebrew' connotation as well.

At 2:22 pm today, Mars leaves Venus' degree behind and reaches 23Lib+ (about to cross George Bush's natal Ic) and culminates at Mc over DC - so Mars' Sabian Symbol changes to: "A third wing on the left side of a butterfly." I believe the "third wing" relates to Paulson's overly expansive new powers. We're going to be sorry about this.

There's a lot more to say but my time grows short. However, I think it's important to re-type here the Symbol for the NWO's signature degree of the Ura/Nep conj, esp since Britain's finances are also intricately involved in this charade...using a mixture of Rudhyar's details with Marc Edmund Jones' negative/shadow side factor...

"18Cap"..."The Union Jack Flies from a British Warship"...

POLITICAL POWER...keynote: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.

"Justice and compassion must balance social power, and especially the power of privileged groups. Where this symbol appears, the need for protection may be in evidence - or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage." (Rudhyar.)

neg: smug or strong-armed paternalism. (Jones.)

So what do you think?

Will Congress provide protection against this naked power grab on behalf of the American people?


Update Oct 7: No surprise - it didn't.

Here's the natal solar (sunrise) chart of Hank Paulson if you'd care to nab a view.

Congress eyes FBI's Ivins case

It's Monday, Congress is back on Capitol Hill for 3 weeks and has sent a letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller asking him nicely to show up in front of the House Judiciary Committee (probably on Sept 16 & 17) to answer a few outstanding questions about the case against Dr. Bruce Ivins.

The New York Times has this:

Seeking Details, Lawmakers Cite Anthrax Doubts in which we are reminded that the post-9/11 anthrax letters contained none of Bruce Ivins' DNA, which must surely be an inconvenient fact for Mueller who will be asked about how investigators eliminated the 100+ people who also had access to the culpable flasks of anthrax.

Bruce Ivins, as you know, committed suicide (we're told) the night of July 29, 2008, so Congress' questions to Mueller may be the only chance the American people have for any closure whatsoever concerning the terroristic anthrax letters of 2001 since the death of Dr. Ivins negates the possibility of a trial.

You remember that the FBI pursued the wrong man for years in this case, Dr. Steven J. Hatfield, who in June settled a lawsuit against the FBI for $4.6 million. Guess we taxpayers pay the piper, but good for Dr. Hatfield whose career was ruined by FBI scrutiny and innuendo.

Looking back at July 29, Saturn (law, authority, accountability) was in a quindecile aspect with nebulous, often obfuscating Neptune.

A quindecile aspect (165 degrees) gives a compulsive-obsessive flavor to the planets involved and you may wish to keep the FBI-Ivins case in mind as Congress applies itself to the case - or as the law-makers simply produce another matinee of political theater on Capitol Hill that goes nowhere and results in exactly nada.
