Alito Draft Leak and a 1991 Eclipse

A Deceitful Stealth Campaign to Destroy Roe v Wade

by Jude Cowell

Thanks to Politico, we can read the 'SCOTUS Initial Draft' written by Justice Samuel Alito here, marked as "circulated February 10, 2022" but leaked late in the evening of May 2, 2022. As you know, Republicans are busy making the controversy all about the leak rather than the Draft's extremist content. An inconvenient leak with bad timing? Or a run-it-up-the-flagpole event intended to prepare the ground for the Court's actual decision? Bizarrely, Alito cites in his draft a relic of a jurist, Sir Matthew Hale (my 9th cousin 12 times removed, geni dot com tells me) who is known for many things, among them: sentencing women to death for witchcraft. His book was published in 1736 and identifies him as a paternalistic no-such-thing-as-marital-rape kinda guy - the stuff that handmaidenism is made of, and this echoes the regressive beliefs of justice Barrett. Of course, this reveals Theocratic leanings as well.

Related is a view of the natal horoscope of Clarence Thomas which was published on SO'W in March 2022 upon the occasion of his hospitalization as timed by a Full Moon @27Vir40 which perfected between his natal Mars-Neptune midpoint and suggested illness and infection.

Protect Your Daughters Especially the Younger Ones: Republicans Plan To Legalize Rape!

As for the long-term drive by ideologues, Evangelicals, Catholics, and whomever to strike down Roe v Wade and women's ability to direct their own health care (with input from their medical doctors and significant others), we may wish to consider the time frame of September-October 1991 of his Nomination, Hearings, and Confirmation to the US Supreme Court, available on Wikipedia with dates and details. Nominated on July 1, 1991 by President George H. W. Bush (who was pro-choice as was his wife Barbara) and confirmed on October 11, 1991 (52-48), justice Thomas is an interesting if curious study. For the purpose, there exists a bio page concerning Clarence Thomas where we find that he received a BA degree from the College of the Holy Cross, a private Jesuit arts college. Then it was on to Yale.

Now you may disagree, but the man's religious leanings seem significant as revealed in part by the 11 South Eclipse Horoscope's Midheaven ('MC'; The Goal) degree of 17 Leo and its Sabian Symbol, "A Volunteer Church Choir --", plus, the revealing Sabian Symbol of the 11 South Eclipse itself: "19 Cancer" = "A Priest Performing a Marriage Ceremony." Well, peep-eye Vatican!

Meanwhile, during his 1991 confirmation hearings, Mr. Thomas lied about discussing abortion issues when he was in law school because, as he testified, he didn't remember engaging on such topics because he was too busy being married and having a job. Of course, this was a tactic to avoid expressing his true opinions which followed the Bork model of hiding one's real intent until confirmed and seated on The Bench, a radical reactionary ploy, now plainly shown by the Alito draft. Then as you know, Mr. Alito also hid his views on abortion during his confirmation hearings as did Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, and handmaiden Barrett; hence, the proposed expansion of the number of SCOTUS justices is a necessity if we wish to squelch Republican lawlessness concerning these social issues and stop on a federal level America's descent into legal madness and the destruction of our court systems.

Then as you know, another complication is Clarence's wife Ginni Thomas who is intimately involved in current events via her surreptious support of Trump's Jan 6th Coup Attempt and the ongoing 'Big Lie' that fraudulent Neptune favors. One assumes that she shares her husband's religious views - if religious is what they are. Yet you and I know that plutonian power grabbing is always a major focus of the Republican Party, now turned into a gang of scofflaws and thugs under Trumpism.

Cosmic Vibes of 1991: Neptune Illusion, Occult Societies, Paternalism

Image DC Horoscope: 11 South Eclipse of July 11, 1991 3:06:06 pm edt Washington DC

A prominent factor complicating matters, the July 11, 1991 Solar Eclipse was opposed by nebulous Neptune Rx @15Cap16 in the 3rd house of Communications (as in, testimony). See lower right corner for what tends to result when a solar eclipse is opposed by the planet of fraud, lies, and deceit: confusing conditions are created of truth vs fallacy, reality vs illusion - the same Neptunian conditions that opposed the 19 North Solar Eclipse of 'realism' and 'tackling the truth' and which affected (infected!) America's Election 2016 and Inauguration 2017. Who can forget their ridiculous 'alternative facts' gaslighting?

Now all of Clarence Thomas' confirmation proceedings occurred under the difficult influences of the July 11, 1991 11 South Total Solar Eclipse @18Can58:59, a major 'cosmic blink' (aka, a 'wild card of the Universe') and above you see the Eclipse Horoscope set for Washington DC with eclipse themes penned on the chart and also typed below, along with the date and degree of its next occurrence, plus, 11 South's initial eclipse in Cancer (family matters!). Significant is chart-ruler Mars (@27Leo42 in 10th house) which makes no applying aspects to other planets, but even though Venus moves faster than Mars, by degree I'm calling it as 'Mars conjunct Venus' (which conjuncts royal Regulus: success if revenge is avoided) due to the fact that 'new alliances' and 'energetic legal matters' can be a result of a Venus-Mars Conjunction. And also because of the relationship, partner, romantic, sexual connotations of the pair, some of which relate to Anita Hill's information concerning the degraded behavior of Clarence Thomas in their previous work place, and the planetary pair's link to baby making activities which ties in with Roe v Wade.

11 South Themes: 'need for sudden reforms; old ideas/methods fail and new systems are required to deal with events that occur; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed' (B. Brady). The initial 11 South Eclipse manifested on June 14, 1360 (OS) @00Can48, a Cardinal World Point, with young people's planet, Mercury @19Cancer (conjunct the 1991 Eclipse degree), plus, a forceful, often brutal Mars-Pluto conjunction in Aries (suitable for rapists of all ages).

We can expect the next 11 South Eclipse on August 2, 2027 @10Leo, the position of Mr. Trump's natal 'Pluto = Mars-Saturn' midpoint picture of brutality and death in his 12th house of Hospitals and the Unconscious. If he's still ticking by then.

Then as you see in the above chart, Neptune conjuncts fixed star Vega which suggests the involvement of 'occult societies', and this seems to be another hint of religious, spiritualist, or supernatural involvement, added to Thomas' connection to the Jesuits and the Catholic Church. To summarize: bizarre, over-the-top zealotry, emotion-based religiosity, and in Politics the radical reactionary determination to shove America into Theocracy resembling the Taliban's sharia law (aka, handmaidism) should be on every American's radar now - but especially in the November Midterm Elections, and again in November 2024.

So! Telling lies to advance what radical reactionaries zealously believe is a 'higher cause' began big time under Ronald Reagan (circa 1980) although Republican fascist leanings may be seen as far back as the Goldwater era (1960); yet Barry Goldwater actually supported abortion rights, or seemingly did as a Libertarian.

Yet one of the scarier things about the Alito draft (which is 'only' a draft) is that it apparently represents the flowering into public view of the GOP's radical zealotry which of course includes a major streak of racism and the promotion of other regressive proposals that white 'supremacists' and others favor as they work to push the US back into the 1950s and 1850s. I fuss because the safety and privacy of every American is at stake!

So in closing, let's note that in the eclipse horoscope, above, rising Pluto Rx 17Sco38 conjuncts the natal Chiron of Clarence Thomas and their blending suggests that he may have been under the sway of forces such as Plutocracy, primal violence, exploitation, and a variety of other -isms including racism, a card that Thomas used against opponents who challenged his SCOTUS confirmation, if memory serves (I remember watching the hearings back in the day). My suspicion is that he was counseled to add the 'race card' to his Bork-inspired tactic of hiding his true beliefs during his confirmation hearing in order to finagle himself onto The Bench.

And thanks to a vote of 52-48, he squeaked by.

Clarence Thomas: Natal Chart w March 18, 2022 Transits

by Jude Cowell

March 26, 2022

As you've undoubtedly heard, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been released from Sibley Memorial Hospital as of Friday March 25, 2022 after a week's stay. Justice Thomas was reportedly admitted on Friday March 18th with "flu-like symptoms" and treated for "an infection". With his natal horoscope accurately timed (RR: AA), we can point out that his natal Mars-Neptune midpoint (infections; illness; weakness; toxins) was spotlighted, and perhaps revealed or uncovered - by the March 18th Full Moon @27Vir40 and its opposing Sun (@27Pis40 with contagious Neptune @23Pis03) And of course, that's Virgo, sign of Health; meanwhile, midpoint pictures were formed by transit to natal as you can see in the bi-wheel, below:

Inner chart: Clarence Thomas natal June 23, 1948 9:00 pm est Pin Point, Georgia; Hour of Venus; chart-ruler Saturn makes no applying aspects but Jupiter Rx in his own sign aids Thomas's legal career and financial endeavors by trining natal Saturn (3A27) from 11th house of Groups and Associations (those who helped seat him on the SCOTUS bench: friends in high places, as they say) to his 7th house of Partnerships. Now as you know, 1948 still contained the harsh Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of August 11, 1947 (13Leo07) but their stark energies had begun to wane by the time baby Clarence appeared on the scene, but were still of influence upon the little tyke.

Then, for his 'ruthless determination toward success' (aka, 'success at any cost') we find radical Uranus @26Gem41 (conjunct Ceres, archetype of the democracy he and wife Ginni would destroy!) leading a LOCOMOTIVE shape of his natal planets. His first-house out-of-bounds Moon @1AQ23 links to erratic Uranus via Aquarius so there's something in his childhood that has spurred him on. Emotional emptiness bwo of a distant mother, and privation are my guesses, how about yours? This implies that his serious demeanor could be from more than the Saturn-Pluto duo's influence, plus, his having sober Saturn as chart-ruler of his Ascendant. In 1948, social conditions in 'Pin Point' (!) could not have been easy.

Current Transits to Natal Horoscope

Lower right you see a list of current transits and here are a few potentials they may inspire:

Jupiter opposing Mars: a period when physical actions are delayed or interrupted, including legal activities; enterprises on a grand scale can collapse under their own weight.

Saturn opposing Saturn: regret for past actions; correcting mistakes is called for; authority is challenged (recuse! resign! some shout); authenticity may be questioned.

Venus opposing Pluto: underhanded manipulation, cutthroat competition; shameless exploitation; vicious gossip; power struggles; jealousy, revenge; obsession; connections to organized crime may be uncovered, along with financial deceptions. (Note that Full Moons can behave much as Uranian Lunar Eclipses by disruptively revealing inconvenient facts and/or unsavory relationships; also note that transits to Thomas's natal chart are also highly significant for his wife.)

Mars will oppose natal Pluto, then natal Saturn on or about March 24 and April 1, 2022 which suggests a period when manipulative actions are a waste of time, and arousing the antagonism of others only makes conditions worse; things should be kept at status quo and hostile confrontations avoided, if possible; attempting to impose authority creates anger and resentment, and adherence to rules and regulations is a must because taking shortcuts will bring unfavorable results; delays or cancellations should be expected; guard the health of bones, teeth, and/or chronic conditions, plus, be cautious because accidents and injuries are possible.

Now disruptive Uranus @12Tau13 not only knocks on Thomas's 4th house door of domestic scene, but its erratic influences can also boomerang into the opposing house, the 10th house of Career and Public Status. Whether the current scandal/s will lead to a resignation or other change of direction, we must wait and see, but electric Uranus, aka, The Witness, has the capacity to catalyze major changes and reforms. Here we see Uranus 'meeting' Thomas's natal North Node of encounters and future direction and the pair suggests 'meeting with unusual people' (doctors or surgeons? others?) plus, his and his wife's connections to Tr*mp's 1/6 coup attempt may be what's indicated here. After all, Uranus-NN is known for its links to radical political associations and reformers, anarchy, zealotry, and revolution. Meanwhile, his South-Node-Conjunct-Midheaven contains the potential for a thwarted career especially if Saturnian demands have been mishandled or neglected (10th house is Capricorn's natural house), but the conjunction can also provide a strong capacity for hard work.

March 2022: Two Significant Midpoint Pictures

Now as you know, the Moon in Astrology indicates the physical body on one level (Mama, family, women on other levels; We The People and the public in a Mundane Chart), and the physicality applies to male personages as well, so therefore, health is part of the lunar picture. In the bi-wheel we find that in his natal first house are transit Mars and Pluto, a powerful duo, and their midpoint forms a picture with Thomas's Moon with potentials for publicity, injury or even an attack. Then in his natal 8th house, the Full Moon (and Sun opposite) are by degrees wedged between his natal Mars and Neptune which suggests the infection that's been reported, plus, weakness and/or illness (R. Ebertin).

Two Solar Eclipses of Note - One Conjunct Midas in Taurus!

Finally, you see his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') @18Tau22 penned in the center of the chart with its difficult 4 North themes of 'restraint, restriction, illusions, misjudgments'. Then on October 2, 2024, the (unaspected = self-absorbed in his private inner world) Neptune of Clarence Thomas will be spotlighted, perhaps revealed, by a Solar Eclipse @10Lib03 manifesting in the 8 South Saros Series with themes of: 'separation; loss; sad partings; overstraining one's strength; best to avoid strenuous physical activity until the influences pass' (paraphrasing B. Brady). Thanks to gaslighting Neptune, facts will continue to be difficult to discover but rather easy to veil. Yet the search must go on and indictments must be filed! However, impeaching a SCOTUS justice may be one of those squishy endeavors that Neptune prefers to erode and undermine into oblivion - 'as if it never happened'.

And we know that on political and legal levels, this particular manifestation of an 8 South Eclipse happens to be the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of Election 2024 and of Inauguration 2025, meaning that the two political events take place under the 'wild card' influences of an 8 South Eclipse in Venus-ruled Libra, sign of relationships and of the Scales of Justice. This cosmic circumstance calls for fairplay and cooperation in order for karmic progress to be made.

Okay there's more, dear reader, lots more, and I hope you'll seek it out. I don't usually type on weekends anymore unless compelled by circumstances or events, but the current conditions surrounding the Supreme Court and its now-questionable integrity (thanks in part to Clarence and Ginni) had gotten on my nerves and as an American with a decided preference for democracy, a sleuthing into current transits to his natals simply had to be done.

And as always, your on-topic insights are invited! jc
