The Republican Revolution marches on

Dixiecrat Republicans Prance Through History

by Jude Cowell

With current congressional Republicans finagling their budgetary demands to virtually guarantee that yet another government shutdown will occur, harm Democrats, bring financial stress to US workers, and potentially cause a global economic crash, information concerning the Republican Party's Federal Government Shutdowns of 1995 and 1996, instigated by Newt Gingrich whose "Contract with (on) America" was a political power play against Democratic President Bill Clinton, may be a useful consideration of the strategic dynamics used in 1994/95/96 because a version of them may soon be repeated against President Papa Joe Biden.

Add to this the fact that history rhymes even if it doesn't precisely repeat, and with Astrology we have cyclical signals and timings that tell a recurring tale for anyone who deigns to listen and take heed.

Naturally, the most obvious cosmic signals that reoccur approximately every 18.6 years are Solar Eclipses which are capable of disrupting life on Earth, can reveal inconvenient facts or secrets thereby leading to scandal, can change the direction of events and/or plans, and qualify as Universal wild cards and cosmic blinks from Above. Of course, Lunar Eclipses are in the mix as well with their ability to leak and/or bring awareness to issues, favorably or unfavorably.

Was the April 2023 Eclipse Foreshadowed on 1/6/21?

So a prominent Solar Eclipse from the fascist era of 1933 (@5Pisces) fell within the difficult 7 North Saros Series as the aptly labeled "Fascism Rising" Eclipse, and a 7 North eclipse repeats on April 20, 2023 (@29Ari50 conjunct MAGA coup Mars) with 7 North's 'sudden events; deeply passionate (blood) lust' themes again running in the background of society. These barbaric energies are already being taken advantage of by fascist saboteurs assaulting America to whatever extent they possibly can - and hoping that results turn out better for their sorry selves this time around.

Obviously, strong pushback is necessary to protect our society against radical 'warriors' and zealots of anarchy such as those active (Mars) on Jan 6th so realistically we must note that Eclipse-Mars contacts suggest rash actions and violent tendencies which can intensify support for 7 North's lustful themes.

Now if you dare, take a look at the upcoming 7 North Eclipse Horoscope set for Washington DC as the symbolic representative for America, and tell me what you see via an on-topic comment:

Sometimes this Capricorn gets a little fussy: don't you?

Of course, revolutions also tend to change the course of events, or at least are fomented with the objective of doing so. Significantly within this particular fuss, the November 8, 1994 Midterm Elections may be referred to as the Republican Revolution of 1994, and I don't have to mention to you, dear reader, that Trump's coup attempt of January 6, 2021 is part of the Republican Revolution instigated by the ruling class, as evidenced by the support of GOP congress members, and using 'MAGA' followers and militia groups as thuggish foot soldiers fighting for Herr Trump while some delusional insurrectionists believed themselves to be patriots fighting for their country.

So as they demonstrated this time around, strong-armed Republicans used violence to further their paternalistic aims. We saw another example of their overbearing paternalism, a form of sadism, when SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade, and American women lost much of their access to healthcare - and their privacy rights with it.

Now to conclude this fussy post, my theory is that Republicans' government take-over efforts in 1994, 2021, and the 2022 Midterms are parts of an ongoing process - a longterm campaign with objectives of grasping total control of the US government, and completing the anti-societal dream and vision of their malajusted idol, the barbaric Herr Adolf, a freakish man some folks call the Austrian psychopath.

Therefore, with America's current crop of far-reich House Republicans tooling up their obsessions, promoting wacky conspiracy theories, and hoping to establish radical reforms to further hobble our country for the sake of their foreign and domestic paymasters, America is infested with psychopaths heiling their favorite historical psychopath - with or without the psychotic Herr Trump running in 2024.

Astro-Notes on the Dixiecrats of 1948 and their spawn

by Jude Cowell

Back in the day, a gaggle of anti-Civil-Rights Southerners, known as the Dixiecrats, met in Birmingham, Alabama and on July 17, 1948 nominated South Carolina Gov. Strom Thurmond for president and Mississippi Gov. Fielding L. Wright for vice president. The Truman and Democratic Party programs supporting Civil Rights for the disenfrachised victims of our country had enraged them, apparently enough to secede from the Democratic Party and proceed to row their own political canoe of States' Rights, racial segregation, white supremacy, Southern Nationalism, and other regressive attitudes and policies ('Jim Crow' laws once again being one of them even though the far-right party officially dissolved in 1948 - but we still have the GOP; I suggest that Dixiecrat ghosts continue to haunt us now.)

Plus, President Truman's Executive Order 9981 ended discrimination in the US military, a major faux pas in the eyes of the racist Dixiecrats. (Side note: Strom Thurmond became a Republican in 1964, and in the November 2, 1948 General Election, he received only 39 Electoral Votes and 2.4% of the popular vote.)

Now these events of 1948 occurred soon after the harsh, cruel energies of the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of August 11, 1947 @13Leo07 and the two karmic planets remained in royal Leo by the time of Governor Thurmond's nomination on July 17, 1948, but with an orb of 8+ degrees. And of course, Sun-ruled Leo is the proud, vain sign of the natural leader while a self-satisfied Moon-Jupiter conjunction perfected that very evening in the 20-22 degree-range of Sagittarius (conjunct you-know-who's tiresome, needy Moon-SN conjunction).

Additionally, the formation of the Dixiecrat Party and Thurmond's nomination fell under the cosmic influences of a 4 North Solar Eclipse with its themes of: 'restraint, restriction, inhibition, separation, illusion, and a 'misjudgment of strength or the situation' (Brady). If 4 North themes sound familiar it's because we recently struggled through them again, thanks to the Summer Solstice 2020 Eclipse @00Cancer.

Inconveniently, the natal horoscope of politician Strom Thurmond has no accurate birth time but check out the chart if you wish. Born December 5, 1902 in Edgefield, SC, you'll find an impressive line-up of planets in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius (Mercury-Sun-Venus-Uranus) and with Jupiter @13Aquarius, he possibly was born with an expansive Moon-Jupiter conjunction, not an unusual pairing for a glad-handing politician whose Mama had always assured him that he could be anything he wanted to be, you see. And this vision-of-grandeur belief, if repeated often enough, can sometimes lead to a presidential run!

Yet also visible in Strom's chart is a dynamic T-Square in effect no matter his birth time: Uranus-Pluto = Mars (@23Vir10 - square US 1776 Mars and conjunct US Neptune) with potentials for: 'fanaticism and violence' (R. Ebertin) and/or an 'impulsive, demanding nature' (M. Munkasey). Then as you know, the Uranus-Pluto duo, his a rebellious opposition, suggests potentials for engaging in extremely violent destruction, anarchy, and revolution (A. Oken).

Well, that's enough fussing about my fellow Southerners and their undistinguished actions in US history. Why fuss? Because if you've read SO'W before this you may remember my assertion that the American people must directly face our monsters - 'Dixiecrats', Jim Crow laws, bigotry, violence, and otherwise - if we wish to have any hope whatsoever of vanquishing them and entertaining the better angels our nature.

Personally, my money is on a constitutional America and democracy. How about yours? #

Update July 7, 2021: Expert astrologer Gary Lorentzen has informed me that Richard Nixon invited the Dixiecrats to "formally join the GOP" on August 5, 1968, aka, Nixon's Southern Strategy. This date falls within the 6 North Saros Series with themes of, 'relationship to authority figures, or, the need to take responsibility and control; commitments are presented due to another person's illness or unreliability' (Brady). The last 6 North eclipse occurred in 2004 @30Aries, the next will manifest on April 30, 2022 @10Taurus. Therefore, this political 'slight of hand' amounted to a gaggle of racists joining the Republican Party.
