Oct 2022: Stars Over Washington is 17!

Shall Stars Over Washington Continue Its Mission?

by Jude Cowell

In two weeks, on October 16, 2022, Stars Over Washington completes its 17th year, and is already gray around the muzzle! Below are dual images displaying SO'W's original founding chart of October 16, 2005 (lower left), plus, its Solar Return 2022 Horoscope with Mercury in Libra rising; astro-notes are penned on for those who care to read them:

In the Return 2022 chart, the Goal Point ('MC' @11Can30) when rounded-up gives an intriguing symbol, "A Chinese Woman Nursing a Baby with a Message"; conjunct MC from the 9th house of Publishing is the out-of-bounds ('OOBs') Moon @9Can03 - conjunct fixed star, Alhena, keywords: "To have a mission." Add to this the fact that the Moon's rounded-up symbol is "A Large Diamond Not Completely Cut," and so I reluctantly surmise that SO'W isn't done yet and should be carried forth into 2023 (although I have been puzzling all year over such possibilities: SR 2022's Seesaw shape of planets = pros vs cons).

My uncertainty as to its continuance is due in part to the fact that as a novice astrologer, I see ahead that 2023 contains personal difficulties via a double Saturn transit, so I'll keep writing and publishing for as long as I can - always for the sake of America and the common good. However, you may as well know that karmic Saturn rules four of my natal planets, so we'll have to see - and naturally I'm taking precautions already since I know of these transits ahead of time.

Note: If you wish, check out the "Chinese Woman" link, above, for a view of my illustration of the symbol, plus, some expansion concerning the degree's meaning.

And so, as turmoil covers the Earth, the following is what I really want to type about today. But please note that readers who are overly sensitive to esoteric, existential, eclipses as portents, and/or eternal considerations may want to skip the rest of this post - and absolutely no blame if you do!

Turning Point: The Woman, The Dragon, The Child - and an Eclipse (Sun-Moon)

In the Book of Revelation, chapter 12 we find a certain description,

"Now a great sign appeared in the heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars."

The KJV gives this as "a great wonder" while the Revised Standard Version of the Bible says, "a great portent." - which is part of what I wrote in my ephemeris on the October 2005 page under the listing of the October 3, 2005 7 South Solar Eclipse @10Lib19. A great sign, wonder, portent! Well, here's all that I wrote and no, I didn't list where the information came from, but here it is for your consideration in light of Earth upheavals and other current events of a turbulent nature which some ascribe to an existential crisis,

"October 3, 2005 Solar Eclipse 7 South is said to be the eclipse of Revelation 12 - the Great Portent." And the woman's identity with her garland of twelve stars and sun and moon connections? This may well be a reference to the Constellation of Virgo (the maiden), the second largest constellation in our skies. But are there 12 stars in the Virgo constellation? No, not now but there may have been previously because above the maiden's head there's a circle of stars, and due to precession it's possible that Coma Berenice is indicated as well. Then in the SO'W Solar Return 2022 Horoscope, we find feminine asteroids (archetypal figures) within the Virgo-Pisces polarity: Ceres and Demeter in Virgo, and Juno, Diana, and Astraea, the star maiden of justice, purity, and innocence.

And yes, the October 2005 manifestation of a 7 South Solar Eclipse is the Prenatal Solar Eclipse that inspired Stars Over Washington, meaning that under its themes, yours truly felt compelled to create the 'personal weblog' you're reading right now - because of my anger against "what politicians were doing to the place," aka, America (exs: preemptive war; "Homeland" Security; The "Patriot" Act). And so I can tell you, dear reader, that 7 South themes contain a deeper meaning for me now than in 2005. How could they not?

7 South Themes: "Immense power, anger, and force" of the intial 7 South's "Mars square Pluto is channeled into this family of eclipses" (via the Mars-Pluto square of June 22, 1248). {}"Huge obstacles will suddenly and easily clear or, on the negative side, a pending potential crisis will suddenly manifest and move through very rapidly; either way, things will seem to move at great speed" (paraphrasing B. Brady).

Now as you may or may not know, Mars-Pluto square energies are formidable and on a mundane (political) level suggest power struggles, jealousy, destructive anger, and the urge to take revenge. Well, we both know who in the political realm this sounds like so his name shall not be mentioned in this post, not this time.

As for SO'W, I can only hope that such powerful energies and themes have been used on a positive level through the years for then something useful can be accomplished. And Capricorns do like to be of use, you know!

So in closing, mention should be made of the next manifestation of a 7 South Solar Eclipse for it is soon-coming and occurs @21Lib07:33 on October 14, 2023. It isn't a Total eclipse, only Annular so its potency will be somewhat muted, thankfully, since all 7 South eclipses carry the forcefulness of a Mars-Pluto square within them. However, the eclipse in October 2023 will fall between the planetary pair of strong political opinions, Mercury and Mars - and Jupiter @13Taurus during the eclipse conjuncts the North Node of destiny in the SR 2022 Horoscope, above, which suggests religious groups interfering in legal processes, and closed legal societies (M. Munkasey).

So perhaps we can agree that these potentials are already underway with America's tradition of separation of church and state underfire by bossy theocrats, ideologues, and mafia-esque criminal types determined to take total control of our country. Therefore, we must out-determine them and use the Mars-Pluto energies ourselves toward positive outcomes!

Now if only fussy words in a political astrology post, significant eclipse portents, and Biblical passages could inspire lovers of democracy to bestir themselves in November and Vote Blue in droves for the sake of America!

An Additional Note: A cosmic time link exists which directly affects America and the 2024 Presidential Election thanks to the 8 South Solar Eclipse @10Libra of October 2, 2024, the Prenatal Eclipse of Election 2024. Falling at 10 Libra, this activates by degree, fully or partially, the themes of the 7 South Eclipse of October 3, 2005 which you see marked within the lower left horoscope's 2nd house so that the themes of both eclipses could combine in a variety of ways when 7 South returns in October 2023. jc

American Revolution's Progressed New Moon July 2022

by Jude Cowell

Wednesday October 13, 2021: Now you've probably seen the Horoscope of the American Revolution of 1775 previously but here it is with a few modern-day cosmic happenings notated:

First, the 1775 Horoscope will symbolically progress ('SP' = Secondary Progressions) or evolve to an SP New Moon @00Cap41, a Cardinal World Point of Manifestation and Global Events, on July 8, 2022 (7:24:56 am Lexington, MA: SP Ascendant 27Sco29; SP MC 12Vir53). Simultaneously, the 1775 Mars-Pluto inconjunct (see lower right corner) will have progressed to a closely applying conjunction in the SP New Moon Horoscope - a Mars-Pluto conjunction in the governmental sign of Capricorn which happens to conjunct 1775 Pluto @26Cap41 (10th house in 1775). So upper right, you see penned some of the indications of 'Mars-Pluto with more Pluto' = "obsessed with vengeance against those who impede you; debased standards of living" (M. Munkasey)."

Now warrior planet Mars (@26Leo13 the 5th house of risk-taking) is chart-ruler (ASC 21Ari49) (the applying aspects of Mars are listed, lower left corner = 'how things proceed'), and in 1st house the Sun @29Ari06 rises (conjunct Demeter!). Then if you look on the left side of the chart you see highlighted in red, a note that the 1775 Sun will be eclipsed on April 20, 2023 by a 7 North Solar Eclipse @29Ari50 - and 7 North is the same Saros Series that the Fascism Rising Eclipse of 1933 fell into so 7 North themes of 'lust and deep passion long-hidden' (B. Brady) will again run in the background of society. Of course, other planetary positions differ between 1933 and 2023 but the cosmic influence is there. And perhaps we should note the Prenatal eclipse of the American Revolution, the Total 11 South Eclipse @11Pis11 (notated in 12th house, highlighted in red). To paraphrase 11 South Themes (which will repeat in 2027 @10Leo!): 'old methods or ideas fail, new systems and sudden reforms are needed to deal with events and handle issues; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed.'

Curiously, the Sabian Symbol of the rounded-up degree of the American Revolution Sun and of the 2023 7 North Eclipse Sun" "30Aries": "A Duck Pond and Its Brood." And significantly, the Mob Attack's Mars on January 6th (2021) conjoined this very degree. So it's no wonder the 1/6 mob attack is being called an "armed insurrection". Or at least, by realists it is - including those of us who watched the events unfold in real time on our TV screens - right before our eyes.

Meanwhile, you may notice that the positions of 1775 Mars and royal star Regulus conjunct the Mars-Regulus conjunction of a certain orange-faced demagogue who shall remain nameless in this post. Perhaps you agree that the less typed and said about the instigator, the better.

So in closing, I won't bore you, dear reader, with more chart details and cosmic links yet perhaps you'll discover them for yourself if curious. And I realize that my multiple warnings concerning the 7 North Eclipse repeating in 2023 are tiresome for regular readers but for those of us who wish to keep America around a few years longer, this is serious business worth repeating. So feel free to pass along this post if you know anyone who might be interested in seeing in black-and-white a reflection of cosmic events affecting soon-to-come earthly political and social shifts before it's too late to avert disaster. Please. jc

12 North Eclipse, US South Node, Pluto, and Demeter

From the ancient and well-known traits of goddess Demeter, an abundance of interesting associations can be gleaned, and since the annular 12 North Solar Eclipse of January 26, 2028 will be attended in transit by asteroid/archetype Demeter (plus, asteroid Hera, the 'legal wife' keeping accounts), Demeter's role as "the legislator" is important among them. Other associations include sacred law, the harvest, agriculture, and fertility so naturally food supplies such as grains are suggested along with potential shortages.

Plus, the 12 North Eclipse of early 2028 is also significant because it manifests upon US natal South Node, a Saturnian point of separation (and neurosis) We The People have inherited from way back in July 1776. To me this implies past reliance upon an ancient cult, a reliance that America's Founders may have used especially since motifs of Demeter (aka, Ceres) are sprinkled across the city of Washington DC, wheat sheafs and all, and of course, all goddess figures (even the Virgin Mary) are really Mesopotamian goddess Inanna in disguise, aren't they?

Inanna's associations include sex, war, justice, and political power. A personal fret of mine is that one of Demeter's symbols is the torch which has come to symbolize white power neo-nazis in our day, and before that, 'the torch' implicates Illuminati subversions and sabotage (ex: eternal flames over certain victims' gravesites). In addition, there's the Uranus-Neptune duo that influenced the 1700s and inspired the establishment of America - our Founding Fathers at work again using Enlightenment principles. In the eclipse chart you see, below, Uranus-Neptune = Aries Point, the primary Cardinal Point of World Events. Now the Aries Point (00Ari00:00) is not marked on the chart but it rises just before Neptune (4Ari21 conjunct Minerva) in 12th house. You'll find various midpoints and asteroids penned here and there.

12 North Solar Eclipse Jan 26, 2028 10:12:11 am EST Washington DC:

Please enlarge the image to read my notes if you wish - you'll find more info I'm sure!

Meanwhile, mention should be made of the three Great Conjunctions of Uranus and Neptune all through 1993 at or around "18 Capricorn" (POLITICAL POWER: "A British Warship," etc) which was activated by transiting Pluto off and on in 2017, you-know-who's first year mucking up and diverting the US government onto a darker path. Again I'll type the word picture out for you - 1993 Uranus-Neptune = tr Pluto: 'The big picture must be followed, very little option to do otherwise' (Tyl). Sounds like one of those sinister offers that can't be refused, like a mobster would make - to threaten politicians and others in order to force them to do his bidding and support his anti-American agenda or he'll sick his thugs on them or on their family members. Well, it would explain a lot of what goes on these days, imho. So in that vein, see Jupiter, below.

What is penned on the chart are the Themes of 12 North Solar Eclipses (near the top, center) including the last manifestation of a 12 North Eclipse which occurred on January 15, 2010 @25Capricorn conjunct President Obama's natal Saturn Rx.

Now in closing, let's look at the planetary star of the show, or at least the supporting actor alongside Pluto conjunct the Eclipse: Jupiter Rx @27Vir11 in the 6th house of Military and Civil Services, plus, Health, Employment, and our Daily Rounds. When we round up the degree we have "28Virgo" = A Bald-Headed Man Who Has Seized Power." And since Jupiter acts as the Handle of a Sling pattern, what can be expected? Well, a Sling pattern behaves much like a Bundle (the pattern of dictator Mussolini) with the Handle planet (or planets) outside the Bundle's 120-degree range and indicating a Jupiterian figure (or figures) obsessed with a "mission" that must be fulfilled (like an offer that can't be refused - maybe a previous one that reared its destructive head in 2017?)

Additionally, we know that Jupiter in Mercury-ruled Virgo (the goddess: Demeter again; also the analyst and critic) suggests an organizer filled with excessive ambition but one who is perhaps rather thoughtless with details and known for his (or her!) superficial criticism. Positively, A Virgoan Jupiter denotes teaching ability and folks with moral and ethical values so let's hope for the positive as 2028 approaches and that America's dependence upon our national South Node from 1776 and the Enlightenment principles our country was founded upon will be honored despite the subversive saboteurs who bedevil and undermine such principles.

After all, this horoscope also shows that the 12 North Eclipse in 2028 manifests at the time of a Nodal Half-Return for the US, a period when weaker relationships and alliances tend to break off and only our stronger more supportive unions survive and hopefully become more dependable. Add to this the indications that a solar eclipse in Aquarius suggests karmic opportunities can be realized by viewing the past (SN), not as a burden we must bear, but as a guide to future development! Humanitarian groups with ethical standards will play their parts for we have a chance to change the course America is on if we so desire by finding innovative solutions and by using a careful and measured approach.

The Natal Chart of Stormy Daniels with Sappho Rising

April 11, 2018: once the New York FBI raided the home, office, and NY hotel room of Trump attorney/fixer, Michael Cohen on Monday (April 9, 2018), it seemed the time to post the natal horoscope of Trump 'amor' "Stormy Daniels" (nee Stephanie Clifford) so here's her horoscope with my typical messy notes, plus a few Trump natal planets and angles marked in red around her chart; as you see, sexy Sappho rises:

Added to the chart are two lunations--her Prenatal Solar Eclipse @7Pis29 in the 17 South Saros Series with themes of good news and success in relationship matters (Brady) and her Syzygy Moon @22Vir41 conjunct fixed star Denebola (out of the mainstream; to go against society) in 9th house and this is supported by natal Moon @4Sco56 as apex planet of her Neptune-NN midpoint (lack of community spirit; disappointment in relationships--Ebertin). Another picture, Uranus-Pluto = Moon gives her a sense of restlessness, plus, determined ambition, intuition, and emotional conviction (Tyl).

Trump, Daniels, and Cohen

One implication of see the current Cohen-Trump turmoil over sex and hush money is seen via Trump's natal Jupiter conjunct Miss Clifford's natal 10th house Pluto (18Lis26 Rx), plus, natal Sun @26Pis05 conjoins asteroid Demeter (Greek goddess of nurturing which in Roman Mythology is Ceres) and asteroid of retaliation, Tisiphone. Note that in a Jupiter-Pluto hook-up, astrological Pluto, as always, holds the cards.

Three aspects to her chart-ruler Jupiter (at critical degree in 8th house of sex) are listed, lower left and she is in process of a three-fer Mercury Return with dates listed, lower right--Mercury's next exact hit occurs April 24, 2018, and as you know, Mercury rules negotiations, deals, and agreements including Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA).

Jupiter Exalts in Moon-ruled Cancer

The lady's last/current Jupiter Return (29Can07) perfected on July 12, 2014 with natal 8th house rising and transit Neptune @7Pis19 conjunct her PE, a Total eclipse which manifested on February 26, 1979. The last 17 South Eclipse occurred March 20, 2015 conjunct Scheat, a difficult star of extreme misfortune. This 17 South solar manifestation was the Spring Equinox 2015 Solar Eclipse of 'sneaks, leaks, and veils' which heralded the prez-bid announcement of Donald Trump (with Stormy's hush money paid just before the 2016 Election). Also note that Stormy's essence is seen via the closest applying aspect to natal Sun and in her case, it's a Sun-Jupiter trine (3A01), an aspect of good luck and success which makes it easy for her to gain the cooperation of others.

And if we progress Miss Daniels' natal chart, we find that she symbolically entered a Balsamic Lunar Phase of endings, partings, and/or hidden activities on January 24, 2016 with SP Moon @17Pis24 conjunct SP South Node, a separative influence. Approaching for her is a new stage in life, an SP New Moon @5Tau42 which perfects on June 17, 2019. Mr. Trump, a Moon-SN kind of guy, was elected during a Balsamic phase and he remains in it until an SP New Moon @3Virgo perfects on September 16, 2019.

For now that's all I wish to type concerning Stormy Daniels' natal horoscope so please enlarge the image if you wish to read my scribbles. And also note that the lady's natal chart and a few biographical details are available at astro.com (RR: A) so get thee hence, if you so wish.

Stephanie Clifford natal data: March 17, 1979 1:10 am CST Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with the hour of birth tweeted by the lady herself.
