Top news video: Goldman-Sachs to pay 1% tax rate

Video: Recent Top Stories from Go Left TV on YouTube, read by Farron Cousins.

Cheney admits to authorizing torture, Condi sort of takes 'responsibility' for the attacks of 9/11, another provision of the 'Patriot Act' has been struck down, and Goldman-Sachs, an investment bank which just received $10 billion of taxpayer money, will pay a 1% tax rate this year. Last year the poor little billionaires paid a rate of 34.1%.

See? it's stuffing off-shore bank accounts with Midas' hoard that protects much of the elite class' obscene wealth from the US government's old IRS goons. See how it's done?

You know, I hope Bernie Madoff sings and sings and sings.

~:~Also visit Raw Story for more news.

Or maybe the corporate raiders of the US Treasury consider the billions in welfare/tax money to be a refund of the taxes they paid before!

Now here's a tale of dark warnings and threats direct from one of the goons of the International Monetary Fund kind:

It's the head of the IMF, Dominique STRAUSS-Kahn, prophesying against 2009, when Jupiter and Neptune shall tango again as they did on Jan 9, 1997. The 1997 cycle is what we're still mired in as we suffer under the Speculators and Grand Organizers of the Jupiter-Neptune ilk along with the Preachers, Priests, and Gurus who inhabit the order.

2009 marks the end of the 1997 cycle and the new beginning of another 13-year dance.

And since I've repeatedly barked here and elsewhere about the year 2009's triple conjunctions of Jupiter-Neptune (May, July, Dec) which relate to the NYSE and other Ponzi schemes and dreams, I'll hush about it for now - unless you want to check below for 1997's midpoint pics which totally describe the mess they've plunked us into so's to have their one-world-government way with us.

Anyway, please read Strauss-Khan's dire predictions which sound strangely like extortionary threats'n'promises to me - but perhaps you'll disagree as IMF chief warns 2009 may be 'even darker' so hold on to your republic.

If you can do so.


Current Jupiter-Neptune cycle began Jan 9, 1007; 6:21 am est, White House, Washington DC, at 27Cap09...conj US natal Pluto...the three planets are so close they may be read as three midpoint pictures...see if these pictures sound familiar a la 2008:

Jup-Nep = Pluto: plans unreasonable beyond measure; self-projection out of hand; major adjustment of life circumstances.

Jup-Plu = Neptune: adjusting the data; omitting key facts; an inclination to be deceptive; working a situation into one's own format; cheating and seducing others; suffering loss through others without being aware of it; a general disappointment.

Nep-Plu = Jupiter: a high degree of cognition and perception; religiousness; success in metaphysical work; sectarians; the "Thank God" position; at one with the way things should be.

Well, it took a few years for this current Jupiter-Neptune cycle to show its frilly undergarments but now that we see more of them every day on Wall Street and in corporate boardrooms across America, it's a wonder the frill has lasted this long.

And one more thing about their 1997 conjunction...Uranus then was at 3AQ45, conjunct 1997's Saturn-Pluto midpoint, a combo of loss and toilsome hard work - and where Jupiter will be visiting on Jan 20, 2009...

Saturn-Pluto = Uranus: brutal efforts to start a new order; an attack, regardless of potential losses; the ability to make sudden decisions in the most difficult circumstances; an act of violence.

Saturn-Pluto = Jupiter (2009): religious and social fanaticism; trouble with authority; staying out of trouble; trying to save what's left; adoption of the austere.

Dick Clouded Cuckoo Cheney says

Another neocon war set-up?

From his office in clouded cuckoo land: Cheney: "Russian Aggression Must Not Go Unanswered"

"The vice president expressed the United States' solidarity with the Georgian people and their democratically elected government in the face of this threat to Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity," Cheney's office said in a statement.

ICH has the article.


Propaganda And Presstitute Alert: McCain Accuses Russia of Bidding to Wipe Out Georgia


Republican White House hopeful John McCain said Monday Russia appears bent on extinguishing Georgia's independence as he demanded a united Western front to protect the former Soviet republic.

"In the face of Russian aggression, the very existence of independent Georgia and the survival of its democratically elected government are at stake," the Arizona senator said.

ICH has the sorry tale. #


There they go again.

You've noticed those who shout loudest the "sovereignty" argument seem to be those who disregard it quickest when it suits their purposes. Guess the fact that the Bush administration must have given Georgia the go-ahead to attack South Ossetia is supposed to be overlooked while Cheney's war drums beat louder.

It's certainly not that I'm a Putin fan, I just think terror-promoters and warmongers (aka "world leaders") are happily gazing into each others' NWO eyes - and a set-up is underway. If there is dissent among them, it's more of an ego-gratification game - 'my ego's bigger than yours' - and collateral damage (aka world populations) be da*ned.

This is about Putin's bid for control of oil, gas pipelines, and grain.

~see: Georgia vs South Ossetia: 100-year-old conflict for Ceres and grain info.~

And McCain? I said this would be used to 'boost' his pathetic prez bid. I wish all those who'd vote for him because he'd respond in a warring way lickedy-split would remember that first they come for others - then they come for you.

And Cheney knows where you live.

Summer Solstice 2008

My 2008 Summer Solstice chart has now been updated if you wish to check it out.

And I want to reply here to a comment to my last post on the White House deleted/MIA emails because Blogger doesn't always allow to add a reply there and I don't have time to fuss with it.

It should apply to any administration (and has until now) but it's this administration that's hiding these communiques. "National secrets" could certainly be redacted esp with the current redacting pen so ever present.

Your defense of what is so obviously a cover-up to keep their way of doing business secretive and their patooties intact--in this the 'most secretive' of White Houses, as everyone has agreed long ago--doesn't change the fact that they're hiding their actions and motives concerning Valerie Plame, the attorneys general firings, and their illegal, preemptive war of choice.

Protecting Bush, Cheney, friends, energy industry pals, enablers, the Pentagon, and Republican politicians is all important here. Thieves and crooks should be concerned to hide their tracks and accountability is unknown in Washington on both (illusory) sides of the aisle--and as an Independent I blame them all.

My guess is that there are more things to be known from these emails than we heretofore have suspected...something even more "above the law" than we've seen before!

Oh, and I do thank you for commenting. jude

Addington subp'd, Congress shafts America

I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election... It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States! --George W. Malone (1890-1961) US Senator (Nevada) 1957 (Source: speaking before Congress)

Strategic blunder of historic proportions, says Gen Ricardo Sanchez as Dick Mushroom Cloud Cheney's top aide, David Cakewalk Addington, is subpoened by a House Committee 'probing' torture.

Wonder what Senator Malone would say about Congress today if he were to awaken from his eternal slumber? He'd need several boxes full of Lunesta to go back to sleep after viewing the presidency of George Mission Accomplished Bush, wouldn't he?

1:00 pm edt in Washington DC: NPR now reporting that the Office of Special Counsel's entire email system was shut down this morning and computers have been seized.

Uh oh. The peskiness and revelations of February's Solar Eclipse at the "Unmasking" degree continues to vex the naughty...

view the spy satellite before it views you

Actually the out-of-control piece of space junk can't see you now--it's said to have malfunctioned almost as soon as it big-brothered its way into orbit in Dec 2006.

Here's a rather cool alert from SpaceWeather:

Space Weather News for Feb 14, 2008

Malfunctioning spy satellite USA 193 has been in the news lately because of expectations that it will reenter Earth's atmosphere in March and turn into a spectacular fireball. Reentry has not yet begun, but sky watchers are already noticing the satellite as it zips over Europe and the United States shining as brightly as a first or second magnitude star.

Typical photos are shown on today's edition of

In fact, USA 193 may never reenter--at least not in one piece. Today, the Pentagon announced it will attempt to blast the satellite with a missile before its orbit decays. This would lessen the chances of dangerous satellite debris and fuel reaching the ground while increasing the population of space junk in low-Earth orbit.

Would you like to see USA 193 with your own eyes?

It is about to make a series of evening appearances over many US towns and cities, beginning this weekend and continuing until the Pentagon intervenes. Flyby timetables may be found at Heavens Above and you can also receive telephone and email alerts when the satellite is about to fly over your backyard by subscribing to SpaceWeather PHONE #

So what happens if the Pentagon misses? Besides the embarrassment, I mean! Just because you can (send more crapola into space) doesn't mean you should.

Enter the trigger happy Pentagon to the rescue: a missile is on the ready and Pentagon brass say that if the first attempt fails, they'll figure out something else. Cheney is a big spy satellite fan--perhaps ole Dead-Eye should be kept on stand by. Stoopider things have happened.

Pentagon ready for Bush's catastrophes

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens For Legitimate Government Feb 2, 2008

All items are here: LegitGov Breaking News

Pentagon claims ready for upcoming Bush false flags:

Pentagon rejects report, says ready for WMD attack: The Pentagon on Friday insisted it is ready to respond to a [Bush] chemical, biological or nuclear attack inside the United States, rejecting an independent panel's criticism of its preparations. But the Pentagon conceded it is not yet satisfied with its plans to respond to some of the 15 catastrophic attack scenarios [!] that federal agencies have been ordered to prepare for, such as a nuclear attack or a series of chemical attacks throughout the country.#

Does this sound like it's ramping up to favor Cheney's happy fun day scrambling air responses on the morning of 9/11?

Don't taunt Happy Fun Ball (thanks, SNL.)

But do visit George Washington's Blog for 9/11 information.

Personal Note to my friends, Neith, Jilly, and Twilight: thanks, my dears for your kind comments--and if Blogger would allow me to open a comment window I'd have answered you all in timely fashion, so for now let me say that I much appreciate your many attentions and concerns! And--

The fault lies not in our stars, but in our blog hosts...

Secret Means are necessary: eavesdropping

News Updates from Citizens for Legitimate Government Jan 25,2008

Breaking News

Like FBI, CIA Has Used Secret 'Letters' Jan 25, 2008: Newly released documents shed light on the use of national security letters by the CIA. The spy agency has employed them to obtain financial information about US residents and does so under extraordinary secrecy, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which obtained copies of CIA letters under the Freedom of Information Act.

The CIA's requests for financial records come with "gag orders" on the recipients, said ACLU lawyer Melissa Goodman. In many cases, she said, the recipient is not allowed to keep a copy of the letter or even take notes about the information turned over to the CIA.

Phone Firms' Bid for Immunity in Wiretaps Gains Ground Jan 25, 2008: The Senate signaled in a key vote yesterday that it supports giving some of the nation's largest telephone companies immunity from dozens of privacy lawsuits related to a federal domestic eavesdropping program initiated after the Sept 11, 2001, attacks.

In a 60 to 36 vote--with 12 DemocRATs joining Republicans in the majority--the Senate rejected a version of the proposed legislation sponsored by Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. That bill omitted immunity for the telecommunications firms involved in warrantless eavesdropping. [From Glenn Greenwald's blog: As usual, just enough Democrats--roughly 12--voted in favor in order to ensure that the Motion passed while enabling Democrats generally to pretend that they opposed it. All GOP Senators voted in favor. The pro-immunity, pro-warrantless eavesdropping Democrats: Rockefeller, Pryor, Inouye, McCaskill, Landrieu, Salazar, Nelson (FL), Nelson (NE), Mikulski, Carper, Bayh, and Johnson. Neither Clinton nor Obama bothered to show up for any of this.]

Judge wants answers on CIA videotapes Jan 24, 2008: A federal judge said Thursday that CIA interrogation videotapes may have been relevant to his court case, and he gave the Bush regime three weeks to explain why they were destroyed in 2005 and say whether other evidence was destroyed. The decision is a legal setback for the Bush regime, which has urged courts not to get involved.#

Legal setback, eh? Yet somehow the Bush administration gets around courts and uses the highest in the land to carry its water when convenient.

This information with its "secret letter" mentions spurred me to look at the Sabian Symbol for "A man gaining secret knowledge from a paper he is reading" (Jones) to see what secrets might be divulged.

"29Virgo" is the degree of this Symbol and the degree of a Solar Eclipse in the 8 South Series which occurred Sep 22, 2006.

Brady's Predictive Astrology tells us that this Series' flavor is about separations, losses, and partings and feeling sad at their completion; physical injury is possible through overstraining one's strength.

I say spying on the American people IS an overstraining of strength.

The original Eclipse in the Series was on April 1, 1718 at "11Aries", the "A president of the country" degree, and the more recent dates of its manifestation are: 1916, 1934, 1952, 1970, 1988, (2006), and the next: 2024.

Interestingly this Series is the Pre-natal Eclipse Series (PE) of:

Patrick Henry (May 29, 1736 NS), the NASDAQ (Feb 2, 1971), George Tenet (Jan 5, 1953), and neocon Bill Kristol (Dec 23, 1953)--quite a crowd. I'll keep the first one, y'all can keep the rest!

So what are the details for "29Vir"?


pos: imagination brought to its full powers through conscious effort;

neg/unconcious/shadow side: loss of common sense in pure supposition.

Yes, the Democrats enable this secret witch hunt which has purpose after all, and few in Washington seem to be willing (or able, for Washington runs on blackmail from and toward both sides) to admit that the Bush-Cheney spying pursuits are about much more than 'catching' foreign terroists.

It's a major duh: politicians have been spied on from within Cheney's secret net, too!

Yet we've seen how successful the Bushies have been prosecuting the few terroists and would-bes they've trumped up on charges, although I can't deny that ruining America's judicial system is part of the undermining of our sovereignty--a goal which is proceeding quite nicely along with financial instabilities (which will make neocon/globalist control even more "necessary.") Control is the power, and 'waterboy' John Roberts will be helping with that.

They're so intent on red herrings--are they ineptly letting the piranhas slip by? It's the tesion of the control vs freedom argument which the upcoming Saturn-Uranus opposition so ably describes.

What fries my potato is their talent for subverting the American people's will so that the majority think they "see" why certain controls are necessary, all the while suffering under the yoke of bill paying and struggling to fund the basic necessities of life, leaving little time to keep an eye on the eyes of spies.

Congress and a free press are supposed to be helping us with that "oversight." Yuh.

It was Adlai Stevenson who uttered, A hungry man is not a free man and it's possible that truer words have seldom been mouthed out loud by a politician.

And their meaning is more clear as time goes on--and more a marker of politicos' dark intent for those who wish to open the secret letter and read.

Eisenhower Bldg on fire: VP okay

Here's the actual fire they are trying to extinguish: Bush Lawyers Discussed Fate of CIA Tapes 19 Dec 2007:

At least four top White House lawyers took part in discussions with the Central Intelligence Agency between 2003 and 2005 about whether to destroy videotapes showing the secret interrogations torture of two operatives from 'Al Qaeda,' according to current and former administration and intelligence officials. The accounts indicate that the involvement of White House officials in the discussions before the destruction of the tapes in November 2005 was more extensive than Bush administration officials have acknowledged.

My original post of Dec 19 written as the fire raged starts here:

By now you're heard that the Old Executive Office Building next door to the White House is burning this morning, a fire already being blamed on an electrical circuit. This is aka the Eisenhower Building and houses a major command post for the secret service among other offices.

Bush was about to leave the White House to sign the Energy Bill, Cheney is lurking about wherever Cheney lurks, and one hopes the Bretton Woods Treaty (which created the World Bank) and other relics of history (not a reference to Cheney) are in process of being evacuated as the staff and employees thankfully have been.

Built in the 1870s, the Eisenhower Bldg was renovated during the Reagan administration and is apparently showing its age. But as FDR said, nothing in politics happens by accident.

Haven't gotten the exact time of the fire from TV as of yet but at 9:00 am est in DC, the plutocratic Pluto-Chiron midpoint was rising at critical degree, 20Cap.

Moon is in last degrees of Aries, Sun 27Sag17, just beyond conjunction with Mercury, planet of agreements, contracts, and treaties...Mercury approaching saboteur and spy, Pluto 28Sag41. Jupiter has moved beyond Dec 11's conj with Pluto to 00Cap10, a World Point where events tend to occur.

At 9:00 am, Sun was conj 12th house cusp, other planets just mentioned were in 12th house (behind-the-scenes; self-undoing; karma; large institutions) and Venus was almost at MC 13Sco12...Venus 16Sco34.

Will update this evening after more details are known--or spun. When Cheney's whereabouts become known, you know they'll be checking his pockets for matches.

At least a copy of the Magna Carta wasn't in Cheney's 'ceremonial' office...was it?

10:30 am Update: found out that Cheney was across the street in his West Wing office of the White House, the fire "appeared to be located near" the vp's office on the second floor. Hmmm.

no exit: fiasco was their goal

As I've been saying:

It's the Oil

By Jim Holt

Iraq is 'unwinnable', a 'quagmire', a 'fiasco': so goes the received opinion. But there is good reason to think that, from the Bush-Cheney perspective, it is none of these things. Indeed, the US may be 'stuck' precisely where Bush et al want it to be, which is why there is no 'exit strategy'.

America's shadow

An Occupation of Iraq is Not Ours to Choose

By Ward Reilly

The only chance we have of saving our nation is to ensure that Bush and Cheney are not allowed to retire into the sunset. If they are allowed to do that, the concept of our nation is lost forever, and we will all be branded as war criminals in the eyes of the world, because "We The People" allowed all of this to happen.#

Mr.Reilly is right, you know...America's shadow must be ID'd and faced...from Hiroshima to Baghdad, and--God help us--Tehran.

Information Clearing House has the article.

so many reasons to Impeach


Cheney pushes Bush to act on Iran --Military solution back in favour as Rice loses out --President 'not prepared to leave conflict unresolved'

16 Jul 2007: The balance in the internal White House debate over Iran has shifted back in favour of military action before President [sic] George Bush leaves office in 18 months, the Guardian has learned... A well-placed source in Washington said: "Bush is not going to leave office with Iran still in limbo."

Bush must be in sixes and nines trying to figure out if bombing Iran will hurt him or help him and his (woeful) legacy. They still use straightjackets, don't they?

Reopen 911?

Reopen 911 is a member of the 911 Truth movement and you'll find that Christine Boutin said last year that Bush is behind 911.

But since it takes at least two to tango, it's my belief that Cheney was the...shall we say, ramrod, of the plot.

Then there's the Sabian Symbol, a word picture which can be surprisingly descriptive of a person or event...the word picture for the Rising degree (the WHAT? of the chart, the horizon, what's coming up) at 8:46 am edt, NYC, 9/11/01 is:

"15Libra" = "Circular paths."

And who do we know who flew in lazy circular paths after leaving Sarasota on that black day?

Perhaps you've read my post on Cheney and 911 from April 2006. Above you see Cheney's secondary chart (the physical plane) progressed to Sept 11, 2001 with Cheney's oh-so-obvious Pluto/Chiron midpoint perfectly astride the most Public Point of any chart--the Midheaven ('MC' = Aspirations; Career; Public Status.)

(I had removed this chart from the 2006 post due to legal considerations which turned out to be no problemo and I've meant to republish it, so with the current heated-up calls for Cheney's Impeachment (and Bush's) it seems like a good Monday to do just that, so here ya go, if you haven't had a gander at the chart before. Even so, you do remember 9/11.)

Sometimes a chart can look chilling...this one's frozen and petrified all at the same time, isn't it?

So as you know, the blending of Pluto/Chiron energies results in oppression, racism, kicking the disenfranchised when they're down, class warfare, predatory lending, and in a word, plutocracy. Vulturing Vulcans, descended from or friends of the robber baron classes, or as they prefer to be called, the elite.

Once again I mention the date of the Great Pluto/Chiron conjunction: Dec 30, 1999 which ushered in the much-hyped New Millenium for the plutocrats to go hog wild and have at it. And the two heavy weights, Pluto and Chiron, were parallel (similar to a strong conjunction and invaluable for timing purposes) for Two Days in Mid-August of 2004.

Don't get me started.....

Teddy Roosevelt and the invisible government

"Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day."

Theodore Roosevelt, April 19, 1906

Born in New York, Oct 27, 1858, this Roosevelt has the "mailed fist in a velvet glove" combo of Sun Scorpio-Moon Cancer. Very intuitive with a strong sense of duty, the weakness is letting subjective hunches replace objective reasoning (sounds like Bush and Cheney.)

This blend's Images for Integration are:

A mother eagle defends her babies with immense courage...A surgeon develops life-saving methods...A mother passionately defends her delinquent child and pleads for a compassionate verdict (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzy Harvey.)

This personality blend is shared natally with Dan Rather, humorist Will Rogers, and Tatum O'Neill.

Here's another Teddy quote--perhaps the one he's most remembered for:

"There is a homely adage which runs, 'Speak softly and carry a big stick, you will go far'."

Guess Cheney speaks softly enough--it's where and how to use the big stick that he's confused about. But most people know where he should put it.

A gang of robbers in hiding

"Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running and robbing the country. That's our problem."

Howard Zinn, from his collection of historical and political essays Failure to Quit.

And this from SO'W's Are You Really Surprised? Dept.:

Critics Say U.S. Focus On Al-Qaida in Iraq Is Overblown.

And from the U.S. secondary progressed chart:

"A gang of robbers in hiding" is the Sabian Symbol for "19Libra", the position of the US sec progressed Mars ("19Lib" is rounded up--I often round down because it's Rx and thus headed "backward" or to the lower degree of "18Lib")--in either case I lay it at the Pentagon's door:

Emphasis is on every person's disturbing capacity for antisocial or even self-perverted practices, or for self-involvement in potentials which may have imaginative but hardly intelligent sustainment in his consciousness.

(There is) a need for initiative, and for a more challenging perspective.

Keyword: DIVERGENCE...

pos: alertness to every threat against a true individuality;

neg/shadow side: abnormal mistrust of everything worthwhile.

Al-Qaeda will "follow us home" Bush and Cheney say? The true robbers are already here.

Queen Elizabeth and Cousin George partay!

With more than a whiff of scandal in the exalted air in the US and Britain, it seems appropriate that Queen Elizabeth II has the same natal Sun-Moon personality blend as the Jamestown Colony (May 3, 1607 NS, sunrise: 5:07:32 am LMT, Sun/ASC 12Tau24, Moon 4Leo50.)

For speed purposes I'll be referring to the British monarch here as QE2--no disrepect intended...natal chart bwo AstroDataBank: Apr 21, 1926; 2:40 am BST, from official records...birthplace London, of course.

QE2's natal Sun is earlier in Taurus 00:12 conjunct Chiron--although out-of-sign with Chiron 28Ari01. With Sun conj Chiron, our full sense of self, of being who we are, is connected to the degree by which we experience spirituality and higher consciousness, and relates to identifying our dharma, or life's work.

She's always seemed to me to have an excellent sense of who she is, royal "WEs" to the contrary. However, her closest--and only--applying aspect to natal Sun is a nagging 'minor' semi-square with Venus (1A15)--perhaps showing in part the stiff view of her personality held by the public (with Saturn at MC, the most public point in any chart, doing the rest.)

A waxing (unconscious) Sun/Chiron conj (2S11) gives a very strong and innate sense of destiny with normal life patterns rarely if ever lived out (Chiron, Barbara Hand Clow.)

If you were Queen, you'd be above the crowd and feeling Saturn's isolation as well, and having her duty-bound Saturn at MC and in powerful Scorpio has made her path clear...Saturn's authority gave her no options but to follow the family business of monarchy.

Plus, natal SN (a separative point and Saturnian to boot) conj n ASC places the Lady 'outstanding in her own field'...and separates her from all but the closest relations. Having SN conj ASC may cause problems with them as well!

There's no time to delineate her entire natal chart, more's the pity, but I want to mention a few more interesting factors relating to her current US visit including the Sun Tau/Moon Leo synchronicity with Jamestown's founding.

This is a good time to give the regal, vain Sun Tau/Moon Leo blend with its fixed opinion tendencies and its materialistic, snobbish, and masterful traits:

Images: On a perfect summer's eve, a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream is held in the palace garden...Keeping up with the Joneses. (If she's here to check up on and rein in Cousin George, then we must be the Joneses!)

And here is a timely quote from QE2 herself:

"True patriotism doesn't exclude an understanding of the patriotism of others."

A most riveting observation considering with whom she's cavorting this weekend...perhaps she should've mentioned it to Cheney prior to 2000 and 2003.

QE2 shares this natal blend with Moshe Dayan, who said:

"Whenever you accept our views, we shall be in complete agreement with you."

Wonder who'll be carrying the bigger cattle prod in Washington on Monday? Couldn't Cousin George just have shipped over the gold as usual? But they had more big fish to fry, it further...

Another of her natal chart features worth mentionally is her Pluto/NN conj with its obvious 'power-as-destiny' flavor. This is the 'tiger-by-the-tail' aspect which gives QE2 the drive and determination to take advantage of prevailing social trends to her advantage (hullo, Jamestown, VA Tech, and Kentucky Derby!) Plu/NN has an even more deliberate and calculating quality than an Uranus/NN conj--which Bush has natally.

The Pluto/NN conj has a dangerous tendency to manipulate social forces which are often too large to handle safely. 'We' may find ourselves entrapped or crushed by the weight of circumstances in which we embroil ourselves (and as in all astrology and LIFE, we may experience this happening to others in our environment--ex: perfect description for the fates of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed esp since North Node represents a fated path or destiny.)

This affairs-out-of-hand quality of Plu/NN conjs may collapse existing structures in a dangerous way. Yeah. Same with the Middle East, thanks a bunch.

But back to QE2's jolly US vacation...

With her natal Saturn 24Sco27, I looked at her arrival chart using tr Moon 24Sco27 which actually timed perfectly with May 3 of her arrival upon our shores.

As her visit progresses, tr Moon crosses tr Jupiter 18Sag15 Rx--a pleasant contact--and then tr Pluto 28Sag37, a point conjuncting Fixed Star, Acumen, keywords: enduring attacks which weaken.

Someone is feeling isolated, alone, and weakened, and the Moon is here to (among other things) buck him up, it would seem. You may be tempted to think this refers only to Bush, but check out this midpoint picture which has been ongoing with tr Saturn 18Leo27...stomping between QE2's n Moon/Neptune:

Moon/Nep = tr Saturn: pessimism; despair; influenced strongly by prevailing and temporary circumstances and conditions; feeling frustrated or paralyzed; hard work to shake off indolence; sense of suffering under the yoke (probably a permanent condition with her motto, duty first, self second); restructuring ambition.

Hey, I know--she and Bush and their elitist cronies could pay for restructuring and rebuilding Iraq! Sometimes I have good ideas.

So after tr Moon visits Jupiter (Cheney?) and Pluto (your guess is as good as mine--Bush perhaps?) Moon will conj QE2's natal ASC on the night of the State Banquet at the White House, Monday, May 7...21Cap23. And of course, Sagittarius is the sign of the half HORSE/half man centaur--she throws down at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday!

By Monday, the Sun Tau/Moon Cap blend gives this *Image/word picture:

A royal banquet honours the longest-serving headmistress of the oldest most prestigious school in the land. (Sometimes Astrology amazes!)

So tr Moon (as QE2 herself--and the Moon makes a good timer) goes from the beginning of her trip to the Monday night barbeque (please, George, tell me you'll allow decent fare to be served!) beginning with her 9th house Saturn (albeit closely conj n MC 25Sco33), through her 11th house of Groups/Associations/Hopes and Wishes--Partay!...then through her behind-the-scenes 12th house of Karma and Self-Undoing, and on to conj natal Ascendant on Monday night: 21Cap23.

This gives three midpoint pictures as tr Moon approaches, goes between, and passes Jupiter and Pluto...

Moon/Plu = Jup: emotional conviction guides a new start; establishing one's new position with a gut feeling (oh dear--not again); great success; lucky chances;

Jup/Plu = Moon: the desire to bring about social improvements and aspirations; the ability to influence the masses or the public bwo an appeal to the emotions; a good psychologist (Bush and Cheney could use one--have at it, Old Girl!);

Moon/Jup = Pluto: an extraordinary and usual striving for possessions and wealth; the urge to start great enterprises (deja-vu?); major plans for major triumph; the big picture and the power to make it appear.

Well, isn't this nice? It is for them--tr NN (meetings; encounters; associations) is conjuncting QE2's n Venus, planet of relationships, money, and pleasant social functions--NN to Venus = cultural get-togethers.

May we only hope that the White House pretzels aren't too stale for the royal palate!

Tuesday she'll wing her way back to her own realm (that is, if you think Cornwallis' Surrender was for real and that American independence is lasting into 2007) where Tony Blair's Labour Party has just and justly suffered embarrassing defeats based primarily on Blair's support of the Bush-Cheney invasion of Iraq. And ten years in power seems like a mighty long time.

It'll be a royal wee wee wee, all the way home.

So why not close with a few bon mots from Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie, another Scotsman, who so winningly said:

"You've forgotten the grandest moral attribute of a Scotsman, Maggie, that he'll do nothing which might damage his career."

May 1, 2003's New Moon

On the morning of May 1, 2003, the day of Bush's Mission Accomplished propagandist stage craft, there was a New Moon 10Tau43 (8:14 am EDT.)

At the moment of the New Moon, the speculative, idealistic Jupiter/Neptune midpoint was focused upon it which gives us these pictures:

Jup/Neptune = Sun: irresponsibility; a squandering of physical strength; deceving or being deceived; potentially misguided states; trying to capture the essence of things; following a dream (George Quixote Bush?);

Jup/Nep = Moon: going with the wind; an emotional swoon; little sense of reality; losing oneself in plans; speculation; instability; wastefulness.

Jupiter that day was conj Bush's and the GOP's natal Mercury (thinking; communications; planning) so you know they were high on something--their own misdirected imaginings, as most people realize by now. And some of that Federalist political pretzel juice was being passed around, no doubt, laced with arrogance.

Your reluctant astrologer (moi) was watching the man with a sock stuffed into his stagey flightsuit--and watching an animated real-time chart (Solar Fire software) as he spoke with the planets rising, culminating, etc...ticking away our lives and our fortunes.

Also at the moment of the New Moon--what midpoint do you think was at MC, the WHY or Aspiration Point of the chart?

Our old friends, Uranus and Neptune, the New World Order duo...

Uran/Nep = MC: inner vision; guidance sought from never-before-tapped sources; a peculiar disposition and strange interests; unconsciousness (of reality? of practicality?); unawareness; mourning; dissolution; a nervous breakdown.

Yeah, May 1, 2003 was another day of grand imaginings and plans in Bush's bubble world.

So here we are at the 4th anniversary.

You may wish to remind yourself of who else wants a New World's John Paul II on Jan 1, 2004 representing the a globalist shout-out to his globalist buds...article link is in my post from Feb 2006 And Who Wants the NWO? The article's subtitle is darned catchy:

UN's failure to halt US war on Iraq leads to new initiative...does it, now?

That little theater presentation between Bush-Cheney and the UN leads to a NWO?? Puh! George must've kissed Rome's ring real sweet for that particular reach-around with the press in cahoots as usual.

And if you're willing you can revisit another SO'W post from Nov 2005 New World Order Oct 24, 1993 if you want to appreciate its baby horns and hooves...not that it wasn't in the works a long time before 1993--Family Planning!

And who can forget this oldy-but-not-so-moldy post from April 2006? Cheney and 911 which tells of mighty Dick's secondary progressed, and class warfare...chart set for 9/11/01.

Can't you hear them now?

George you go far away--down to Florida would be perfect--and be seen to be doing good...we'll round up some kids for you to read to...unaware and innocent-like...Mr. Unaware!

...kind of like the politicians and their ongoing Bible reading at the Capitol Building this week which culminates on Thursday, the National Day of Prayer.

Perhaps these political thespians will get to the part where Jesus cautioned about not praying in public, but going home, shutting the door and praying for your needs in private...think they'll get that far in their hypocritical charade?

Neither do I. But Pat Robertson is mighty proud of what they're doing...I heard him mention it on his tv show this morning. It's another Jupiter/Neptune set-up echoing from May 1, 2003!

Vermont Senate says Impeach!

Today the Vermont Senate voted 16-9 (some stayed away from the chamber) to impeach Bush and Cheney.

Citing "serious questions about constitutionality, statutory legality, and abuse of the public trust" the measure was passed without debate.

Personally I'm fatigued with such debate and ask what many have asked before me--what does a criminal have to do to get impeached around here?

April 28th cometh...for all the fat lot o'good it will do, for even if impeached, this administration's lying, undermining snoots will still turn up regularly on my tv and computer screens and they will continue the dissolving of America.

Still, I'm more than ready for April 28th, are you?

Vermont Senate: Impeach the President

Apr 17: here come de judge

Tuesday, April 17 is more than just Tax Day, it's the day Gonzales is scheduled to speak to Congress.

His opening statement having been released Sunday, the players have plenty of time to rehearse their parts.

On Tuesday at 7:35:59 am edt (Cap Bldg) there is a New Moon 27Aries05.

You'll find the basics on the Sabian Symbol for "28 Aries" here by scrolling down to Robespierre's natal Moon in Aries--"I AM the people." The keyword for this degree is DISJUNCTION.

The Image for the bold, quick-thinking, crusading Sun Aries-Moon Aries combo is:

An invincible Hercules, propelled by primeval power, bursts into the dark castle, unties the fair maiden, and together they ride off into the sunset.

(I like the ride off into the sunset part.)

This jives with the Sun and Moon being benefically trined by Mr. Primeval Power himself, Pluto, now at 28Sag54 Rx...conj Fixed Star, Acumen, keywords: "enduring attacks which weaken."

The New Moon is perfected within 12th house of behind-the-door deals/meetings with Pluto trining New Moon from the 8th house of High Finances.

And illusive, deceptive Neptune is in 10th house so I would expect lots of spin of the spidery web variety (lost emails galore these days!)--and perhaps an element of self-sacrifice in the Career--esp since Fixed Star, Diadem is parallel (similar to a conjunction) the ASC at the moment of the New Moon.

There is a T-square formed and pointing to the ASC 19Tau29...from the ongoing Saturn-Neptune opposition, so we see:

Sat/Neptune = ASC: feeling confined; sense of being 'out of the group' (has Gonzo been jettisoned with Cheney's and Bush's "answer for yourself" buh-bye?); oppressive circumstances; limitation of freedom.

Of course, Saturn's realism mixed with Neptune's imagination and delusions give mixed results in the honesty department.

During the New Moon, Mercury 11Ari16, is unaspected--working on his own--and as we know, Gonzales has been rehearsing in a determined fashion for this performance.

Mercury (testify!) is conj tr Ceres, an asteroid which represents security issues in a mundane or national chart.

It's a contentious Mars hour...with Mars in deceived/deceiving Pisces ("9Pis": "A jockey spurs his horse." This is a Mars-opposite-Mars transit for Bush--the head-against-brickwall transit. Others don't cooperate as they should! Yet Bush never admits the adverse, and Gonzo will attempt to do same in his testimony.)

Quarrels (Mars) are indicated as well as a lack of self-control, diplaying unusual energy, upping the tempo, rash actions, ready-to-go, striving for power and control, and--although you don't need astrology charts to tell you this--

power games with important consequences.

Appointing judges at their will and whim--that's what they were ultimately up to, imho. And this naturally brings in the Evangelicals and Vaticaners with their priorities in the courts.

Perhaps "the judge" can fill us in on their so-named "murder boards" while he's at it--that'd make a nice side story to distract from White House involvement in pressuring US Attys...and interfering with justice.

Kurt Vonnegut 1922--2007

Novelist Kurt Vonnegut's fall two weeks ago in his Manhattan apartment resulted in brain injuries and he gave up the fight Wednesday, April 11.

In honor of a master I'm posting his natal chart the birth time of which is in question. But some transits aren't affected by birth time as long as the date is correct so I've marked Saturn outside the chart as The Old Man been visiting Vonnegut's natal Neptune of late. This is a difficult transit when you're 84 years old with its visions of The Grim Reaper and all.

Jupiter tends to be active at times of death and so we see Jupiter in first house along with Pluto. In a spree of blatant neglect, I did not write in the supposed planetary hour of his birth--a Jupiter hour, if born at 8:00 am CST (this looks like a rounded off time--once very commonly done.)

Custodians of Chaos is an excerpt from his memoir, Man Without A Country and is well worth a read if you haven't. It puts Bush and Cheney in their sorry places.

The Image for his natal Sun Sco/Moon Leo blend:

A Samaritan mirrors sunshine into the depth of a dark pit bringing hope to those who live there.
Puts me in mind of the slaughterhouse in Dresden and his use of his war experiences in writing Slaughterhouse Five.

This Sun/Moon blend is shared by poet Ezra Pound who said, "The difference between a gun and a a difference of tempo. The tree explodes every spring."

Your work, Mr. Vonnegut, is well done. RIP where guns can hurt no more.
