Those Celebrity Spies of Hollywood!

A Tribute to the Anti-Nazi Actors of World War Two

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy and the common good

When it comes to war, who better to become spies than actors already accustomed to hiding their true identities? The lists of anti-Nazi spies of World War Two are now known to include several famous actresses and actors whose secret activities were successfuly concealed - everyone recognized them so passports were seldom if ever checked, their appearances in certain venues were distracting, they knew how to schmooze with anyone while gathering information, and they could travel wherever they wished.

For example, the very popular Josephine Baker spied for her beloved France as she traveled with invisible-inked intel written on sheet music sewn into her clothes. Well done!

Please note that this post is inspired by watching an intriguing 52-minute video this morning: The crucial role of Hollywood spies--from Cary Grant to Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo.

Sounds like yet another reason the current crop of fascists such as Tr*mp and the 'maga' GOP 'hate' Hollywood and the film industry Jews therein - it's an old grudge they hold against people in the WWII era who stood in the way of Hitl*r's Nazi world domination agenda.

Well, I'm very glad they did! Now the estimable Taylor Swift, with her ability to inspire new voter registrations, a pro-democracy move, probably won't be welcomed at Mar-a-Lago any time soon. For as The Independent put it a few days ago, Taylor Swift call to action drives 13,000 people every 30 minutes to voter registration site. So that's another well done!

Meanwhile, it just so happens that three of the Hollywood actors mentioned in the video have previously been profiled on my Neptune's Silver Screen blog of celebrity horoscopes, trailers, and photos.

If curious, here's a list of their astro-portraits:

Cary Grant (pictured above; public domain);

Marlene Dietrich (FBI head J. Edgar Hoover didn't trust her but did he trust anyone?);

Greta Garbo who, curiously enough, played the role on film of one of the most famous spies of all, World War One's Mata Hari!

Now on the topic of spying we would be remiss to skip over a previously published astro-comparison between Ian Fleming and Sean Connery, two men whose collaboration on author Fleming's James Bond double-oh-seven character made Sean Connery mega-famous and defined for generations of audiences the archetype of the elegant, always successful spy. Yet as far as I know, Mr. Connery was only play acting and not a real spy at all--but Ian Fleming had been!

So let's close on a more current note: a recent question posed by a BBC writer but perhaps you already know the answer, If Trump isn't a spy, why is be being charged under the Espionage Act? After all, 'agent orange' faces only 31 charges over stolen documents. So far!

Astrology: Trump Arraignment in Miami June 13, 2023

The Witch Has Been Found!

by Jude Cowell

Yesterday, the federal indictment by a Florida grand jury of convicted sexual predator Donald Trump on 7 counts including violations of the Espionage Act, a post appeared here at 2:50 am edt, Trump Indicted: Sun and Mars tell a tale! which shows the two most prominent transits to his natal chart.

Today let's glance at two images: first, a bi-wheel of his Miami appearance in court on June 13, 2023 at 3:00 pm edt with Trump's natal chart surrounding it so that we can clearly see which of his natal planets rise at that hour, and that is his 2nd hou$e Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter trio of fraud and speculation with US 1776 Saturn smack in the midst!), and the unmarked Trump Arraignment Horoscope set for June 13, 2023 at 3:00 pm edt, Miami, Florida along with the 3:00 pm aspect grid.

A revealing midpoint picture forms with our national legal eagle planet Saturn, exalted in Libra at apex: Trump Jupiter-Neptune = US Saturn with potentials for: 'feeling abandoned by luck; consequences that issue from false hopes; plans which come to nothing; disappointment; losses' (R. Ebertin). You'll note that Trump's lawyers had been telling him that an indictment was unlikely which gave him false hopes, as it turned out, as US Saturn proceeds to hold him accountable:


As you see, the arraignment's chart-ruler Venus applies only to a conjunction with testy Mars (6A29) suggesting an increased urge for beneficial alliances; he may need more lawyers. Then with his bubbly Libran trio rising, we can expect a defense inflated with overblown arguments against what some have called a cut-and-dried case along with his usual Libran Jupiter whine of, "It's not fair!" Trump's Chiron (the wounded healer) @14Libra is feeling mighty but*-hurt so his tendency to play the role of the martyr will undoubtedly be utilized.

As yes, Trump will turn 77 years old on June 14, 2023, and his Solar Return occurs at 1:17:06 am ET with Pisces rising and the ongoing transit of Neptune square his natal Sun still within orb. That's whether we set his Solar Return 2023 chart for Mar-a-Lago, Bedminster, or Miami, and indicates the scrutiny, and eroding, of his leadership ability, honesty, integrity, and "principles" (to whatever extent anyone can believe he has any). The undermining influences of this transit have been ballooning at least since 2019.

In closing, a word or two about the Jupiter-Neptune duo whose current cycle began April 12, 2022 @23Pis59. Potentials for the pair include scandals, degradation in systems of justice, and/or foolish or unfounded legal situations (M. Munkasey). And as we know, litigious Trump is an expert in inspiring foolish legal situations. But this time, serious legal situations are catching up with the flighty Gemini.

Happy 87th Anniversary Social Security!

August 14, 2022

Because the 87th anniversary of the signing of the Social Security Act by President Franklin D. Roosevelt has arrived, here is a bi-wheel of horoscopes showing the signing of the Social Security Act ("noon"; inner) with the popular, life-saving social safety net program's Solar Return 2022 planets (outer) which actually became exact yesterday afternoon:

Yes, I know, way too many of my study notes are squooshed upon the charts, my usual mea culpa. Actually, marking the charts took quite some time this Sunday morning so that now I have company coming and no time to type a bunch upon the topic. However --

An Eclipse 'Cosmic Time Link' Theory: 2022 to 1935

Toward Social Security, threats have often been made, including by Donald Trump and his GOP comrades. Meanwhile, in light of America's current problems concerning the Trump-Espionage Act turmoil, there is a factor I am compelled to add to this post and it involves the Solar Eclipse Series in which the SS Act was signed - the 9 New South.

Penned on the inner chart in 9th house you see it there where it manifested in 1935 @6Leo17. My 'cosmic link' theory about this is that the recent New Moon of July 28, 2022 @5Leo39 activated or is echoing the themes of the 9 New South Solar Eclipse and bringing them up in the Collective for society to deal with. 'Certain conditions open to scrutiny that were previously hidden' is part of this picture, and of course, New Moons can behave in similar disruptive fashion to Solar Eclipses (and Full Moons like Lunar Eclipses: even the Full Moon @19AQ21 on August 11, 2022 'hit' the SS Act's Syzygy Moon @20AQ47, and 2022 Saturn Rx now restricting the Act's Full Moon - see top center of the image).

Additionally, I've long had a theory that when turmoil takes over the media air waves such as we now have, it's always prudent to look in the opposite direction, so to speak, because something is happening in politics that public attention is being diverted from. Poorly explained, but you know what I mean: slight of hand, and under table deals. Now the Schumer-Manchin deal seems positive enough but considering current transits to the 1935 horoscope, a primary concern is about the health and future of the Social Security Program that millions of Americans depend on - and the malevolent tendencies of certain greedy politicians and the wealthy ideologues who bribe them.

So in closing, I hope you'll consider 9 New South themes which mimic current Trump-Espionage Act circumstances (my italics) - unless I miss my guess:

Bringing to the surface long-term worries about loved ones, health, or issues to do with paperwork or communications; this could manifest as a worrying piece of news about a loved one or responsibilities with paperwork coming home to roost; any news will have a sense of fatedness or destiny attached (paraphrasing B. Brady).

And one more thing: among the multiple topics involved, the purloined documents that Trump illegally squirreled away at Mar-a-Lago could contain secret information about the WTC attacks of 9/11.

The Very 1st Great American Eclipse

Historical and Eclipse Cycles Rhyme and Forewarn

by Jude Cowell

Previously we discussed the 3 Great American Eclipses and below is a DC Horoscope of the very first Great American Eclipse of July 29, 1878. Falling within the 6 South Saros Series, a consideration may be timely because a Solar Eclipse repeats in the 6 South Series on October 25, 2022 @2Scorpio conjunct Venus in Scorpio which adds a potential for materialism. You'll find the 6 South themes that society must again deal with listed below; and, karmic as it all is, hopefully society will manage the arrogant Leonine energies in a more positive manner this time around as we view the October 2022 eclipse through the lens of 6 South's initial eclipse sign of hazy, if compassionate, Pisces - one end of the victim-savior polarity.

1878 Eclipse @6Leo33 conjunct US North Node of Future Direction: "The Constellations in the Sky"

We should note that the 1878 Eclipse Path of Totality was about 118 miles wide and raced across the Rocky Mountains, the Wyoming Territory (Thomas Edison was there which attracted quite a bit of publicity for the cosmic event), but its path began in Russia.

Rhyming Witch Hunts, Illness, Elections Then and Now

How about a little context? In 1878 after a contentious election tossed to Congress to decide the victor (a 2020 result Trump would have accepted), Rutherford B. Hayes was installed as president and the 45th Congress was sitting upon Capitol Hill. See The Electoral Commission of 1877 for details.

Now among US Events of 1878 are a yellow fever outbreak that killed thousands of people (Aesculapia conjunct contagious Neptune in the 1878 horoscope), and - get this - the last of the Salem Witch Trials in the US was held.

Known as the 1878 Salem (or, Ipswich) Trial, the victim was Daniel H. Spofford, accused of using "mesmerism" on Lucretia Brown, a 50-yo spinster (see the IC's Sabian Symbol!) living in Ipswich, Massachusetts; the proceeding was held on May 14, 1878. Now these folks were early Christian Scientists, adherents of Mary Baker Eddy, who made "mind control" and mental powers such as hypnosis (mesmerism) a topic in her speeches for the rest of her life. Controversy remains as to whether Baker Eddy was actually behind the civil lawsuit against Spofford, yet some say it was only Miss Brown (the aggrieved), but if we go by the Sabian Symbol of the IC, or, Foundation, the HOW? Point in the 1878 eclipse horoscope, we might guess that it was not one but two ladies involved! And prim ones at that.

Of course, these days we're dealing with hyper-Christians and puritanical theocrats who pervert "what Jesus would do" and spout what they imagine to be "noble lies." A form of mass mesmerism is suggested.

Then in recent years we've had multiple mentions of witches for it's a favorite accusation from Trump - that he's target of a "witch hunt," a pitiful ploy for sympathy. He said it again just recently because of the August 8, 2022 FBI search of Mar-a-Lago for stolen White House documents, classified and nuclear related, as it turns out (Venus-Pluto). But the witch wasn't home that morning. He was in NYC at a deposition for which he pleaded the fifth 440 times! For that's what guilty mobsters do because answering truthfully admits to committing crimes.

As for current day mesmerism, for years listening to Trump's disjointed rhetoric I've wondered if the orange blighter uses some kind of mind control technique to convince his audiences of what should by all that's rational be absurdly bizarre claptrap unsuitable for any ear but the most gullible. He's definitely a demagogue "telling them what they want to hear using the power of 'positive' lying" kind of propagandist. And after all, his natal Mercury in Cancer reveals what's on his mind and tongue, collecting gossip being one of his special talents (which goes well with blackmailing activities). "Serious indiscretions" are also indicated - and which are now under scrutiny with the distinct possibility that Herr T "shared" (sold) America's secrets to the highest bidder. Mar-a-Lago surveillance tapes should tell this tale about this lucrative money-making scheme since leaving the White House. My guess is that he had already sold secrets while in the Oval Office. Tragically, this is what happens when a foreign agent is allowed to occupy the US presidency.

So who in Washington DC didn't know what he was and couldn't see our current predicament coming from miles away? Well, maybe now America's Espionage Act will come in handy.

Anyway, I thought a view of the very first Great American Eclipse might interest a few readers, and I added the Sabian Symbols for the chart's Angles, plus, a few other astro-notes for the ultra-curious. Through the years we might say that 6 South eclipses are Pisces-Leo-Virgo-Scorpio affairs with planetary influences proceeding through Jupiter-Neptune-Sun-Mercury - and now we're at a Mars-Pluto stage of manic energy.

6 South's Mars-Pluto and Venus-Pluto Vibes: Violent Fanaticism

Now for 6 South themes that many of us are feeling already. Their thematic influences will grow stronger beginning for up to two weeks prior to the October 25, 2022 Solar Eclipse (appr. Oct 11th+) and have also influenced historic events when a 6 South eclipse manifested on August 31, 1932 (Total then, too) as what I unhappily term the Nazis Rise to Power Eclipse with its possessive Venus-Pluto conjunction in Cancer. Financial concerns are suggested then and now along with fanaticism and jealousy.

Plus, here's a view of the October 25, 2022 Solar Eclipse with emphasis on the forceful, often brutal, weapon-carrying duo of Mars-Pluto which were in opposition at the initial 6 South Eclipse (March 6, 1049) but the pair, with Mars out-of-bounds and acting independently, will be inconjunct at the next manifestation of 6 South in October 2022 and - pass it on - this indicates that beneficial adjustments can be made. In fact, it's time for them. So hopefully, the DOJ's and other investigations into Trump's suspicious activities will result in improvements for America and the common good.

Then on a bizarre, morbid level (where the Mango Mussolini exists), a few political pundits are even wondering what secrets Trump might have buried on his golf course with Ivana! If she was cremated as reported, why is her gravesite coffin-shaped?

Themes of 6 South: "being forceful and taking power; manic energy with great force or strength in relationships; sudden events; exerting huge efforts in group endeavors" (Predictive Astrology, B. Brady #ad).

To me this means that rational Americans who prefer democracy, the US Constitution, the rule of law, and America's traditional Enlightenment principles, absolutely must make huge efforts in order to counter the global fascist/neo-nazi mania, therefore, We The People must have no less than a Blue Tsunami turn-out in November and again in November 2024!
