Pres Obama speaks 2.24.09, US Saturn rising

Zounds! Information Clearing House has done it again - come up with some apt quotes for today's crap that governments of the world are hawking to its subjects:

"Every single empire in its official discourse has said that it is not like all the others, that its circumstances are special, that it has a mission to enlighten, civilize, bring order and democracy, and that it uses force only as a last resort. And,sadder still, there always is a chorus of willing intellectuals to say calming words about benign or altruistic empires."

Edward W. Said, author of "Orientalism 25 Years Later,", 4 August 2003.

(That's because the world domination agenda has infected academia as well as media, banking, business, religion, and politics. They're 'willing' all right.)

"If the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded."

Noah Webster - (1758-1843) American patriot and scholar, author of the 1806 edition of the dictionary that bears his name, the first dictionary of American English usage.

(And prophet, imho. He expressed himself perfectly here, agreed?)

Yes, I have studied this evening's chart for Pres. Obama's address to a joint session of Congress, his first, where he is to "lay out his comprehensive approach to confronting our economic and fiscal crises," says the White House website.

Scheduled for 9:00 pm est, Capitol Building, Mars Hour, we find 14Lib34, the natal position of Saturn in America's chart (Sibly; July 4, 1776, 5:10 pm LMT; Philadelphia, PA) so our Saturn (responsibility; work; restriction; accountability; managers; authority) is about to be discussed.

Hopefully, the fact that Saturn is Exalted in Libra, an Air or mental sign, may help us figure this mess out. But the clock is ticking, with Saturn the ruler of Time.

Actually, this brings up America's natal Sun-Saturn square which shows our nation's early inferiority complex. But after enough experience, this square can become a very useful aspect even though success may not come easily - hard work and concentration are required.

In fact, this is a 'one step' or 'one day at a time' aspect, so I'll be listening tonight for words along those lines; or 'don't under-estimate America's potential," or perhaps something about "starting at or near the bottom" (re-training for jobs? restructuring systems from near-scratch?)

If our present lack of confidence - in markets, banks, leaders, etc - can be overcome well enough, we'll find again our natural self-assurance though it will be less buoyant than before. But more of Saturn's realism is no bad thing!

Perhaps we should 'retrain' our positive attitude toward, and love of, enterprise and hard work in order to get this recovery show on the road, no matter how long the dusty trail turns out to be.

And 9:00 pm in Washington is mere minutes beyond tonight's New Moon 6Pisces35, which I'm glad of - better than a few minutes before. We'll see how plans mentioned tonight are going come the next Full Moon (in 2 weeks, the Culmination stage.)

That we're poised at a new cycle of activity is obvious. Keeping the self-interested critics with their whines and dramatic flourishes - sour grapes from sore losers - in proper perspective while being certain their lies are exposed, will be big challenges going forward under the hazy, veiling influence of a Pisces New Moon.

Especially within the Politics of a not-so-revealing Washington, DC.
