First American vs Worst American

The Uniter and The Divider

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy and the common good

Earning his reputation as The First American due to his tireless campaigning for colonial unity, this post contains a comparison of The First American's natal planets with the natal planets of what a majority of current-day Americans consider to be The Worst American.

Naturally, you may guess their identities, yet names have been changed to protect both the honorable and the guilty, so please don't spread around any of this information. You see, one was a true patriot and Founding Father but is beyond knowing about this comparison, while the other, a faux patriot and serial bankrupt who sells America's secrets to the highest bidder, sports an extremely thin skin with "vengeance" as his middle name.

We could even say that when it comes to governing style and methods of leadership, these two individuals are polar opposites. The First American united us, The Worst American divides in order to conquer and control us.

Brief astro-notes follow concerning a difficult planetary contact between First and Worst; other planetary contacts are circled on the bi-wheel; an aspect grid of comparison is included in case you wish to follow up:

But these principles are opposed by The Worst American, who is backed by foreign and domestic anti-democracy enablers - and all are determined to force upon us a paternalistic dictatorship with The Worst's hefty bulk and a long list of his personal grudges skulking at the top. This is, as you know, the 1930s-1940s gnatzie model of dangerous government.

Now here is a planetary aspect grid between the natal charts of The First and The Worst

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.

America's Birthplace 2019: A UNESCO World Heritage Site of Global Culture and Interdependence - clip

April 24, 2019: Does the founding of America no longer belong to We The People? Here's an interesting presentation from Truthstream Media:

My personal opinion is that my Revolutionary ancestors who risked their lives and fortunes to help set up the place would not appreciate this 're-branding' of our nation at all. What do you think?

Not only Was America Not Christian but Founders Invented a Goddess

Now as a Christian myself, I know that this recent segment from Thom Hartmann may ruffle a few feathers in the realms of "America Was Founded as a Christian Nation" (incorrect as that is! the US is more of a Utopian Uranus-Neptune trine affair!) but what Thom says is true: our Founding Fathers set up America as the 'New Atlantis' via principles of The Enlightenment which were secular (based on reason, the Uranian half of the equation) and they 'invented' the goddess Columbia to watch over our nation--our 'totem goddess' we might say (see Capitol Building dome!).

Please allow Thom to explain if you haven't run across the following segment already:

Looks as if Columbia Wants You!

Is Republican Party Policy Leaving People With No Choice?

Dec 5, 2018: Now here's a very good question posed and discussed by progressive broadcaster Thom Hartmann:


And let's remember a significant cosmic event arriving soon for the Republican Party for on December 29, 2018 comes the fifth conjunction in a series of five Neptune Return/s for the Party--with Donald Trump's natal Neptune @6Libra at Midheaven in their December 29th Neptune Return horoscope (shown)! Yet we don't need Astrology to tell us that tragically for our nation, scandals, rumors, conspiracy theories, leaks, veils, subterfuge, 'fake news', false propaganda, fraud, corruption, bribery, schemes such as Medicare "Advantage", underhandedness, sabotage, paranoia, fear, fanaticism, delusions, falsehoods, deceit and lies are major parts of the GOP's disappointing Neptunian-Piscean agenda which nowadays includes compromised politicians and those who actually act on behalf of foreign governments--exactly as the Founding Fathers feared!

The Washington Monument: Center of Political Power?

Image: the Washington Monument which was built in the form of an obelisk, an Illuminati symbol of power. In fact, the Monument marks the spot on earth where the power of these legends-in-their-own-minds is centered and politically that's Washington DC (for the moment, at least). Of course, obelisks also stand in various places across the globe such as London and New York where they mark the secretive organization's centers of financial power.

Now these mystical tidbits and many more were well known to America's Founding Freemasons, some of whom were also Rosicrucians and/or Illuminatists, and some were members of whatever other knowledge-is-power esoteric, satanic, and/or Utopian groups were around during the 18th century for occultism didn't wear the stain upon it then that it wears today. Yet the groups still exist in one form or another and perhaps you've noticed that in the last few years we've seen a preponderance of their machinations speeding up via infiltration as attacks from within and without American society become more brazen--especially since transit Uranus left mystical Pisces in late May 2010 and entered Mars-ruled Aries (crossing Cardinal World Point 00Aries00) and bringing along disruptive Uranian tendencies that inspire actions by anarchists, fanatics, blind zealots, dream enthusiasts, radical reformers, Utopianians--as the great Reinhold Ebertin informs us about Uranus in Aries in his book The Combination of Stellar Influences (I'm not making this stuff up, y'know!).

Actually, we discussed such topics in early 2015 concerning New York City's three obelisks and the prophetic Belt Stars of Orion. This was back when Scott Wolter's America Unearthed was airing on TV. Of course, that post was written prior to the political elevation of amateur Donald Trump, Uranian extraordinaire and a man on a mission. That his aims differ from Illuminati goals is not proven to me though some folk may feel differently especially if they fell for Mr. Trump's 'drain the swamp' rhetoric. Personally, I see Trump's disruptive, chaotic way of doing things part of 'the big picture', the 'Grand Plan' that's been Washington DC's blueprint all along, thanks to Utopians like Bacon and others who envisioned America as the New Atlantis.

For as you know, the whimsical if Freemasonic Mr. Trump's 10th house Uranus in Gemini is his oriental planet (last to rise before natal Sun) and as such, the planet of chaos and sudden shocks is his guiding planet. It seems tragically chilling, doesn't it? Especially for those of us who prefer a sovereign America with much less satanism, thank you very much. Still, Trump has his marching orders with his quixotic notions, lack of political knowledge and skill, and poor behavior as cover for what he's instructed to perpetrate. Tattered cover, if you ask me, but there that's the set-up for their 'great design'.

In The Cycle with Trump's Purposefully Chaotic Leadership (Even If He Is a Big Dummy)

So this is as good a time as any to remind you that transit Pluto, planet of destruction, the Criminal Underworld, hidden wealth, and transformation, has been activating 1993's Great Conjunction degree of the Illuminati-Enlightenment pair of planets, Uranus and Neptune (18Capricorn) and thereby creating a disturbing midpoint picture--activated under the quirky, bigoted leadership of Uranian Donald Trump...the big picture demands a certain course of action which must be followed, very little option to do otherwise (Tyl). Yes, bribery, threats, intimidation, and blackmail are only some of the tactics used to keep politicians and others in line and marching forward. Maybe we should ask Trump and Putin about the effectiveness of such draconian tactics some time.

Well, it's a tiresome reminder, I know, but to yours truly, the Uranus-Neptune-Pluto midpoint picture and the timing thereof makes Trump's 'election' and his odd behavior and fawning toward Putin and other totalitarian dictators easier to understand--as orders from on high. After all, Pluto in Capricorn is 'the dictator' and the element of timing is extremely pivotal to the plans of transnational social tinkerers who think they know best how to rule the world. These are obviously the sort of reptile-brained degenerates the world is oppressed by as their control grid tightens upon us all. In Politics and Business we can even say that the reptiles act under the guise of Pluto-Chiron plutocrats and use dividing tactics such as primal violence, racism, Capitalism, Socialism, corporatism, and other anti-societal -isms too numerous to mention here. By their lousy anti-democratic fruits we know them. And it certainly isn't written in stone that America necessarily has to provide the top leader of the global government-new order the chaos-creators are in process of setting up (1776--2025 or so?). (Though Trump probably assumes the top dog position will be his--at his age!!)

And although orbiting centaur Chiron has since bustled ahead of slower moving dwarf planet Pluto, we remain ensnared within the current Pluto-Chiron cycle which began at their Great Conjunction of December 30, 1999 @12Sagittarius (rounded up). For those who use a late afternoon natal chart for America (July 4, 1776) this conjunction (11Sag22) perfected upon US natal Ascendant...'12Sag' = "A Flag Turned into an Eagle That Crows." And no one has to guess which nation the 'eagle' represents in our day or which national flag is depicted in the well-timed symbol of the plutonian conjunction which helped usher in the much-touted New Millennium. Of course the 'crowing' is, in part, the illegal, preemptive, unconstitutional 2003 invasion of the Middle East with the WTC attacks of 9/11 as pretext. How threadbare Washington's alleged justifications have become! How craftily they stirred the hornet's nest! How the blow back of violence affects the entire world now! Yet oppressive Pluto-Chiron approves on behalf of the so-called New World Order (its October 24, 1993 horoscope shown).

And though Pluto remains in Capricorn until 2023, passing over US natal Pluto Rx along the way, soon a new energy shift within the Pluto-Chiron relationship begins with Chiron to Aries Point for the first exact conjunction occurs April 17, 2018. And soon a different shift occurs when quirky Uranus enters Taurus May 15, 2018. Post shows Trump natal chart with May 15, 2018 transits--and a New Moon @24Taurus36 conjunct Trump's natal Midheaven which holds asteroid Phaethon within the turbulent stars of the Pleiades--including nasty Algol. Also see: Uranus to Taurus 2018, Pluto to Aquarius 2023.

Back to Washington DC's Starry Significance

Now speaking of stars and the founding of the District of Columbia (an archetypal Venusian goddess), we've also discussed previously L'Enfant's original plan for the Federal Triangle and how our three primary buildings represent on earth three particular stars overhead--the Capitol Building = Regulus, the White House = Arcturus, and the Washington Monument = Spica, the Spike. Plus, DC's obelisk (George's phallic Monument) points upwards toward another star that we seldom hear about these days--Porrima, a star of fertility and prophecy (George is said to have had a visionary mystical streak himself). Yet the obelisk's spotlight on Porrima has always struck me as somewhat odd since Freemason George Washington could father no natural children (due to a case of smallpox as a teen?) yet his public image has been carefully crafted through the years as The Father of Our Country. Okay, on a symbolic level he was. And perhaps the more prominent role of Porrima in our 'future' times of Now is prophecy, particularly that found in Scripture: Signs in the Sky: Prophecy and Israel's Fig Tree Prophecy. Trump scooted things along by announcing the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, an announcement which further stirred up turmoil in the Middle East. He is, after all, the announcer-in-chief with starry Alhena (to have a mission) conjunct his natal Mercury, planet of announcements, messages, deals, commerce, and magic tricks.

For Donald Trump is the announcer in the White House now just in time to aid and abet Israel's Scriptural Fig Tree Prophecy (linked above).

Okay, I'll hush for now and send congrats to anyone who has read this far for you are mighty. Here are three links to previous posts concerning similar topics:

America's 1776 Aries Ingress Horoscope

March 18, 2018: here is a view of the Aries Ingress (Spring Equinox) horoscope of March 19, 1776 (Sun to Aries Point) which shows a New Moon @1Aries ("A Woman Has Risen from the Ocean, a Seal Is Embracing Her"), and marks the beginning of a new cycle of activity and, as we know, heralds the founding of a new nation in 1776--order out of chaos. As you see, the midpoint of the revolutionary pair, Uranus and Pluto conjoins the Sun-Moon midpoint. Uranus-Pluto denotes the "collapse of the old order, construction of the new" and "revolution" (Ebertin).

The Sun Aries-Moon Aries combo? Mavericks and crusaders! Saturn exalted in Libra and rising? Difficulties at the beginning but ideals will be put into a proper form with laws for guidance.

Of course, 'a woman rising from the ocean' hints at a newly invented America and her founding motto, E pluribus unum, 'out of the many, one' and the 'seal' refers to America's Great Seal with its Illuminati symbols as accepted by the era's enlightened thinkers determined on the betterment of society (Sun sextile Uranus). These were our nation's Founding Fathers whose contrary ideals inspired them to become advocates for the common man (Sun sextile Pluto). To me the fact that Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were not yet discovered in 1776 is of little if any consequence since a Neptune-Pluto trine was above their heads and denotes those who can respond to the invisible realms and forces whether they are aware of it or not!

So when looking at transits to America's natal horoscope (of which there are many versions set for various hours on July 4, 1776), this cosmically timed Aries Ingress 1776 chart is an alternative and may be a chart to keep in mind.

Here's Part One of The Story of America's Great Seal.

Trump, Venus, a Pagan Egg, and the 2020 Election Cycle

Are We All Pagans Now?

by Jude Cowell

Over at The Maddow Blog a headline appeared May 2nd saying that the Trump Team flubs the first ad of the 2020 election cycle so, on the topic of a 2020 Trump campaign for a second term, it behooves interested astrologers to discover the position of planet Venus on Election Day November 10, 2020 since goddess planet Venus links to our every-four-year election cycle (eight if a president is re-(s)elected).

For as you know, the White House's 'Oval Office' is a not-so-subtle shout-out to Venus and the World Egg, aka, the Orphic Egg, and America's Founding Fathers, mostly members of secret societies of a pagan persuasion, honored the goddess with statues and symbols all over the District of Columbia--including the feminine statue atop the Capitol Dome, and by their descendants' acceptance from French Freemasons of Lady Liberty with her Illuminati torch held aloft in New York Harbor.

And perhaps you're aware of the many Zodiacs the Founders sprinkled around Washington DC and certain Egyptian obelisks positioned in certain high places?

According to the Venus Cycle of US presidential elections, the outcome can be ascertained by the position of planet Venus on election day (with only two exceptions involving FDR and Reagan) that if Venus is Morning Star and in the sign of Libra, the current party occupying the White House will retain the presidency for a second term. If Venus is Evening Star and in the sign of Sagittarius on that date, a rival party candidate will be the victor as was the happenstance on November 8, 2016 with Venus in Sagittarius, sign of the foreigner. And I know you heard the words "an outsider" touted often during the lead up to November 8th and that's what we got--a businessman, real estate mogul, and beauty pageant/wrestling promoter all bundled into one regressive Republican named Donald Trump (his mobster ties notwithstanding).

Although it's difficult now to see how Mr. Trump can 'grow' into a state of suitability for the presidency enough to warrant a second term, and barring more scandals that reach the impeachment standard, the disturbing news is that on November 3, 2020, Venus will be @15Libra and bright and shiny in her Morning Star capacity which presages a retaining of the White House for the incumbent party (whether it's Trump, Pence, or Paul 'Ron' Ryan). Oddly enough, 15Libra is the exact position of planet Jupiter as I type today and Mr. Trump, the Uranian CEO and broadcaster, is also very much a huge Jupiterian!

What will transpire over the first term of Mr. Trump is unpredictable with his quirky oriental Uranus in Gemini leading all his natal planets from natal 10th house of Career and Public Status. Is there a scandal serious enough to take him down and leave the American people with a Puritan Mr. Pence who left his state of Indiana in turmoil? It would seem America's days as a sovereign nation are numbered and the political class's blending of church and state now in process may lead to revolt among our Puritans who are originally more pagan than they seem to know. Of course, Pagans vs Christians is exactly what Utopians have wanted for centuries along with East vs West and global turmoil.

For more on such topics, you may wish to see Prince Charles: "I Am a Descendant of Dracula" (w/ video and more). For as you know, Founder John Adams and his ancestors such as Henry Adams were members of the Order of the Dragon who immigrated to America under the Puritan guise to escape England's persecution of their paganism, a form of 'founding America for the sake of religious freedom' that current day Christians are convinced describes only them!

The February 2017 Eclipse, Alexander Hamilton, and Aaron Burr

Recently The Mountain Astrologer published an excellent article by Kate Plumb concerning the (rectified) natal and progressed charts of Sun Capricorn Alexander Hamilton along with the Opening Night horoscope of the very popular Broadway show Hamilton. With Hamilton's natal chart progressed to Opening Night (August 6, 2015), we see modern influences upon a posthumous chart where its long deceased owner's life and reputation are now cast in the very bright spotlight of a Broadway stage. Fascinating!

Note: these notes concern the 'rectified by Regulus' natal chart though conflict remains since Hamilton may have been been born, not in 1755, but 1757, according to some historians. There are brief notes on the conflict and a view of his bio and natal chart (X-rated; no time) at astrodatabank.

In the rectified version of Hamilton's natal chart set for January 11, 1755 1:23:37 am LMT Charlestown, Saint Kitts-Nevis, one immediately notices the several placements including Sun and Moon, in Saturn-ruled Capricorn, sign of business, law, government, and gilt-edged stocks and bonds. In fact, the Harveys, in their book Sun Sign-Moon Sign give the Sun Cap-Moon Cap combination of energies a very Saturnian Image for Integration: "A hoary old grandfather sits in his chair with his grandson on his knee. He gives him a gift for his seventh birthday - a first edition of The Pilgrim's Progress." (Note: the boy's seventh birthday resonates with old man Saturn's 28-30 year cycle through the Zodiac and the first square occurring around seven, the typical age when baby teeth begin to fall out!)

As for modern planetary transits to Alexander Hamilton's 1755 natal chart, I refer to these:

Transit Neptune now conjoins natal Uranus 8Pis41 (changes in society cause confusion, disorientation, unrealistic expectations), transit Jupiter will soon conjoin and spotlight his Prenatal Eclipse degree (22Lib35) in the New North Saros Series, and the February 26, 2017 Solar Eclipse @8Pis12 will 'hit' his natal Uranus with its Uranian 'cosmic blink' vibes which may have either positive or negative influence--or a mixture of both--for his reputation and perhaps for his namesake Broadway show. And of course, transit Pluto's ongoing plod through Tropical Capricorn has and will lend power and the gift of transformation to his many Capricorn planets: Mercury 1:42, (Chiron 3:27), Moon 11:12, and on to Saturn 20:01 (a critical degree), Sun 21:17, and Venus 25:50 Rx. This Capricorn line-up is preceded in his horoscope by natal Pluto 15Sag03 and Mars 29Sag06, another critical degree (being the 29th--and anxious to enter Capricorn).

Hamilton's Prenatal Eclipse Series (PE), the 9 New North, initially manifested on August 21, 1664 @28Leo50 with warrior Mars 20Lib54 conjunct the explosive, revolutionary Uranus-Pluto midpoint which suggests potentials for fanaticism, violence, and a tendency to force ideas upon others. Hamilton was, as you know, an officer in the American Revolution, an aide to General Washington, if memory serves, and America's first Treasury Secretary. So it is through a solar Leo lens that his Libra PE may be viewed and thus involves cautions against egoism, pride, arrogance, and vainglory. And considering the themes of 9 New North, I must wonder if his fatal duel with Aaron Burr is on some level a part of the Sun-Venus eclipse influence because 9 New North themes are: violence, accidents, great physical effort, and a sudden physical event.

Naturally, there are several accounts of the Hamilton-Burr duel of August 11, 1804 and its sad aftermath and Eye Witness to History has one of them. And perhaps you may agree that the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of the duel, the 4 North @21AQ36 which perfected on February 11, 1804, contains sadly appropriate themes: separation, restraint, inhibition, restriction, illusions, events that seem to block the individual which causes a tendency to misjudge strength or the situation (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology).

Now here are some brief notes on five transits of the July 11, 1804 duel which greatly affected the 1755 natal planets of Alexander Hamilton and noting that squares (90 degrees) = blockages and obstacles, and inconjuncts (150 degrees) can indicate health crises--in this case, via bullet:

1. 1804 Jupiter square natal Venus: confused values and priorities, a victim of shameless social climbing, alliances and joint ventures suffer snags and difficulties.

2. 1804 Venus inconjunct natal Saturn: criticism, resentment, overreaction, envy, intolerance, retaliation.

3. 1804 Saturn square natal Mars: impatience over rules and regulations, thwarted physical actions, quarrels about who is right and who is wrong, anger, very unpleasant situations, authority figures resent aggressive actions, physical injuries.

4. 1804 Pluto conjunct natal Uranus: a generational challenge between power and anarchic forces and indicating extreme violence and destruction.

5. 1804 Mars inconjunct natal Mars (29Tau to 29Sag): a picture of the duel itself with fighting Mars off-kilter from Hamilton's natal Mars which hints at his decision to fire but miss his opponent; a negative health indicator.

So that is my brief astrological assessment of Hamilton, Burr, and their tragic duel, with certain Solar Eclipses added. Yet since we know there must be more to the story that so favors the victim, Alexander Hamilton, let's close with a revealing quote from Jefferson's Vice President Burr himself from the controversial biography Fallen Founder: The Life of Aaron Burr by Nancy Isenberg:

"In a Day or two will be published another pamphlet in which you...are to {be} proven part{y} to certain imaginary intrigues of mine. This knot of knaves cannot long hold together--they begin already to call each other lyars--the only truth they have uttered." Aaron Burr to Pierpont Edwards, 1802.

A 'knot of knaves'! And soon, in New York City's one Republican newspaper and elsewhere, the "sleazy insinuations and crude insults" followed and eventually the goal of his enemies was achieved--to destroy the political career of Aaron Burr. Hmmm...sounds a lot like the crude, vulgar, insulting 2016 Campaign, doesn't it?

Astro-Notes: Mar 9, 2016 Solar Eclipse in the 18 South Saros Series

Mea culpa! The title of this post contains a typo: the Solar Eclipse manifests this evening, March 8, 2016 at 8:54 pm EST but to edit the title messes with the functioning of the link! Once Moon meets Sun, Luna becomes void-of-course until Wednesday March 9. jc

Original post begins here:

Tomorrow evening a Solar Eclipse manifests @19Pisces in the 18 South Saros Series:

18 South themes include potentials for: endings, separations, and partings which can relate to travel or to endings of relationships or alliances; grief and anguish may follow yet the pain of separation can be lessened by new situations which create positive outcomes (Brady's Predictive Astrology).

As you know, the sign of an initial eclipse in a series colors the eclipse--here it's a Jupiter-Neptune Pisces eclipse through a Mars-Pluto Scorpio lens, both emotional water signs but one Mutable (changeable), the other rigid, willful energy that, if conditions are right, may easily relate to war, aggression, and conflict. The Initial Eclipse of the 18S Series occurred on August 20, 1096 OS @3Sco29 with forceful Mars-Pluto undertones; this degree conjoins the current position of US Secondary Progressed Saturn Rx showing America's compromised authority in the world.

A major factor that occurred within the 18S initial eclipse is an obsessive quindecile aspect (165 degrees between two money planets, Venus and Jupiter which on one level can provide much creative energy but also indicates an excessive drive for relationships and/or money; ideals, morals, and ethics are often based on material gain, belief systems tend to motivate action, and excess and indulgence are definite potentials. For positive expressions of 18S, education is essential. (Reeves, The Quindecile.)

Actually, Campaign 2016 has a couple of candidates who allegedly use a 'belief system' for political guidance and to represent them with the evangelical community. However, gaining the Oval Office may or may not be a positive result for the American people if theocrats are riding the Washington gravy train while misrepresenting our Founding Fathers as promoters of the Christian religion when it was Age of Reason (Uranus-Neptune) principles that America was modeled upon and not that ole time religion of a later century.

As for the 18 South Solar Eclipse that occurs tomorrow, there's an interesting list of characters and entities born or occurring under 18S such as: Sirhan Sirhan, Craig Ferguson, Rudy Giuliani, Marilyn Monroe, Mark Twain, Piet Mondrian, the city of St. Augustine, Florida, the US hostage release by Iran (staged just in time for Reagan's first Inauguration)--and the surrender of General Cornwallis to General George Washington at an hour, date, and location of Freemason George's choosing (as we're told).

In rhyming with History fashion, 18S has manifested in the years 1908, 1926, 1944, 1962, 1980 (Reagan decade beginning), 1998, (2016). It will next occur in the year 2034 though you may wish to consider events of past years and all of the US president who oversaw them in search for similar themes or events (ex: a campaign manager or staffer leaves a candidate's employ) for these may return to our Collective Mind for re-evaluation in 2016.

Benjamin Franklin and the Ancient Science of Astrology

Views on Astrology by the Enlightened Benjamin Franklin

As you know, the First American, Benjamin Franklin, grew rich from the sales of his Poor Richard's Almanack, and is known to have been a prominent Freemason, scientist, and astrologer. These days, some folk say he was no astrologer, only an almanac writer and publisher. That's nonsense! Yet I am certain that Dr. Franklin can speak for himself on the topic of Astrology with his punctuation and spelling retained:

“Courteous Reader: Astrology is one of the most ancient Sciences, held in high Esteem of old, by the Wise and Great. Formerly, no Prince would make War or Peace, nor any General fight a Battle, in short, no important Affair was taken without first consulting an Astrologer, who examined the Aspects and Configurations of the heavenly bodies, and mark’d the lucky hour. Now the noble Art (more Shame to the Age we live in!) is dwindled into contempt; the Great neglect us, Empires make Leagues, and Parliaments Laws, without advising with us; and scarce any other Use is made of our learned Labors, than to find the best time cutting Corns, or gelding Pigs, – this Mischief we owe in a great Measure to ourselves: The ignorant Herd of Mankind: had they not been encourag’d to it by some of us, would never have dared to deprecate our sacred Dictates; but Urania has been betray’d by her own Sons: those whom she had favored with the greatest skill in her divine art, the most eminent astronomers among the Moderns, the Newtons, Helleys, and Whistons have wantonly condem’d and abus’d her, contrary to the Light of their own Conscience.”

Whew! Ben calling out Sir Isaac Newton, one of Thomas Jefferson's three philosophical idols along with Bacon and Locke for as you know, Mr. Jefferson hung portraits of The Three in his temple-observatory, Monticello. And thanks to the astrological astuteness of Franklin and Jefferson, the American people were saved from owning the Saturn-ruled Capricorn Moon of July 2, 1776 (famously the favored date of John Adams) which opposed the Cancer Sun and have instead enjoyed the airier, humanitarian Aquarius Moon of July 4, 1776.

Speaking of Ben Franklin and Astrology, here's a brief presentation which might interest you:

Actually you may wish to consider the hidden, more unconscious or karmic information residing in the Full Moon horoscope of July 1, 1776 for debate concerning American independence certainly occurred under its influence. Significantly, this is America's Syzygy Moon, the lunation prior to the founding of our country across the Cancer-Capricorn axis of Security as Franklin and the rest debated and planned a 'New Order of the Ages' under peril of their own lives. Note that all the planets are in the usual signs of for the USA with the obvious exception of the Moon and the not-so-obvious exception of goddess planet Venus not yet in her July 4th sign of Moon-ruled Cancer and at a critical-crisis 29th degree of Mercury-ruled Gemini. Mercury was retrograde as on July 4th which to me describes the final (re-) signing of the Declaration of Independence on August 2, 1776 when Mercury, planet of signings, writing, and agreements, had turned Direct (which is preferred!)

Now here is a very much related post: Horoscope and the Hidden Dynamic of the American Revolution set for the 'first shot fired'.

Genius, occultist, philosopher, and probable Rosicrucian, Benjamin Franklin, was born January 17, 1706 (NS) at 10:30 am LMT (+4:44:14) in Boston, Massachusetts under the influence of a Capricorn Sun (27:12 conjunct US natal Pluto) and a Pisces Moon (5:20), a humanitarian combo of a scientist-poet-dreamer, a lover of mysteries with a talent for bringing order out of chaos. (Harvey.)

View Ben Franklin's natal horoscope at astrodatabank where you'll note that Isaac Starkman has rectified Ben's chart to 9:37:20 am LMT which, among other things, changes his fiery Ascendant from Mars-ruled Aries to an intuitive, mystical 13Pis40, making philosophical Jupiter and higher octave Neptune his chart-ruler and sub-ruler and gives him an earlier 4Pis49 Moon. A Pisces Ascendant is intriguing considering the very secretive Dr. Franklin yet given his amazing physical energy, a 9th house Mars as chart-ruler makes sense, too. Of course, other factors apply as well with an earlier birth time. What do you think?

Who was Paid What to Fast Track TPA? video - Thom Hartmann

TPA #TPP #FastTrack #FreeTradeDeals #USCongress #ThomHartmann

Well, America's natal Jupiter (the banker; the corporatist; the politician) of 1776 is at '6 Cancer' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests" and feather these pocket-liners do.

Source: America's traditional horoscope of the Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776, the date celebrated as Independence Day as recommended by the Founding Fathers, and of course you know that John Adams and Thomas Jefferson expired on the same day: July 4, 1826 with Sun conjunct goddess star, Sirius, which was probably their aim for their promoting that particular day as our nation's day of birth. So because of precession, every time we honor July 4th we are simultaneously honoring (aka, worshiping) Sirius-Isis.

Harry Truman's NSA and Pluto's Covert Actions

Today as I consider the natal horoscope of the National Intelligence Agency (NSA) and its draconian collection of Americans' phone call and email data along with the natal chart of President Harry Truman, I think back to a few snippets that were posted here in October 2010, the gist of which actually concerns all three branches of surveillance and covert actions in the USA: the CIA, the FBI, and the NSA:

Posted: 15 Oct 2010 05:33 PM PDT

(GlobalResearch) – By assigning covert action roles to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), it is as if the White House and Congress had legitimized the Ku Klux Klan to operate globally. That’s because the CIA today resembles nothing so much as the “Invisible Empire” of the KKK that once spread terror across the South and Midwest. Fiery crosses aside, this is what the CIA is doing globally.


Allowing it to operate in secret literally gives the CIA the mythical Ring of Gyges. In Plato’s Republic, the owner of the ring had the power to become invisible at will. As Wikipedia puts it, Plato “discusses whether a typical person would be moral if he did not have to fear the consequences of his actions.” The ancient Greeks made the argument, Wikipedia says, that “No man would keep his hands off what was not his own when he could safely take what he liked out of the market, go into houses and lie with any one at his pleasure, kill or release from prison whom he would, and in all respects be like a god among men.” The CIA, like Hitler’s Gestapo and Stalin’s NKVD before it, has provided modern man the answer to this question. Its actions illuminate why all criminal entities, from rapists and bank robbers, to Ponzi scheme swindlers and murderers, cloak themselves in secrecy.

There are innumerable examples of how American presidents have authorized criminal acts without public discussion that the preponderant majority of Americans would find reprehensible. Example: it was President Lyndon Johnson who ordered the CIA to meddle in Chile’s election to help Eduardo Frei become president. If they had known, U.S. taxpayers might have objected to such a use of their hard-earned money to influence the outcome of another country’s elections. But the public is rarely let in on such illegal foreign policy decisions.

A Few Astro-Notes Concerning the NSA and Its Father, Harry Truman

The NSA formed when one of our Freemason Presidents, Harry Truman, signed a memorandum on October 24, 1952 at 10:45 am EST Washington DC; ASC 22Sag35, MC 28Sco55; 8th house Sun 1Sco10, Moon 11Cap37 conjunct 12th cusp of Politics, Karma, Self-Undoing, and Secret Enemies. Midpoint: Sun-Saturn = Neptune: inner peculiarities; mental, emotional, physical crises. Pluto 23Leo02 squared Harry Truman's natal Sun (18Tau39) denoting possible coercion and manipulation via threats to his power position and influence. Although, as a high ranking Freemason, our 33rd president may have been happily in cahoots with the formation of such an agency for the sake of the eventual implementation of Global Government. Leo and Taurus are, after all, Fixed signs of rigidity.

Plus, we must note that Truman was born under a Mercury-Pluto conjunction in very early Gemini, ruled by Mercury, planet of the senses such as sight and hearing. This resonates with America's natal Mercury-Pluto opposition of total surveillance and dealing with, hiding, and wielding secrets. Curiously, considering the current (staged!) debate on the Patriot Act, the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse @00Gem conjoined Truman's Pluto (00:24) and Mercury (1Gem16 Rx, both in natal 8th house of the Occult, Transformation, Corporatism, and Death--Harry did drop the first nuclear bomb though it had already been sanctioned by FDR) in the 14 South Series contains Mercury-Pluto themes of success once obsessive ideas are finally accepted (Brady). Not by me--I don't accept them. Do you? Let it sunset!

The 14S eclipse of 2012 was a major turning point for global society and manifested upon the sensitive degree of a Fixed Star in the constellation Pleiades, Alcyone (keywords: something to cry about and mystical but judgmental). Note: scroll a bit and type 'Eclipses' into the sidebar Search field and you'll find the May 20, 2012 horoscope set for Washington DC on the list.

Now at Truman's NSA signing, another transit relating to ego and goals of Truman's Sun is that transit Jupiter was Rx and in process of conjoining his natal Sun, a time of overconfidence when a culmination of something begun about 12 years before is being reached--in or around 1940 for Truman; this endeavor needed to be either elevated to a higher level or discontinued at that time (1952). A greater attainment of knowledge (ex: spying) is a major part of this Sun-Jupiter picture. Additionally, Jupiter nears Truman's natal Neptune (20Tau41--a Sun-Neptune conjunction for hiding-in-plain-sight-yet-veiled Harry) indicating a time of pretense, illusion, delusion, paranoia, and fanaticism. Sounds exactly like Washington DC in 2015, doesn't it?!

Since the attacks of 9/11/01, we've watched as the agency's anti-constitutional nature has grown and expanded since 1952 and most people agree that the NSA's dependence upon Pluto's cloak of invisibility has been undemocratic from the start.

As for the (June 1, 2015 midnight) sunset provision within the US Patriot Act (section 215), an Act that purports to legalize the massive data collection of US citizens' communications for no logical reason, transit Pluto remains in the neighborhood of the NSA's natal Moon in Capricorn bringing potentials for a deeper transformation through publicity and public scrutiny than the agency is comfortable with, intense turmoil within its own ranks and on Capitol Hill (thanks to Senators Rand Paul's and Ron Wyden's objections to the NSA's massive data collection aimed at innocent Americans as the agency misses finding real needles in real-problem haystacks because of an obsession with knowing it all and using personal info against us later), and their over-zealousness which may cause loss of at least some of their power and control--it is to be hoped for the sake of our right to privacy.

Not that they won't continue surveillance of the innocent under another guise...

Secret-Government related: The American Deep State (contains video)--and all of these topics cast a glaring spotlight upon America's 1776 Saturn in Libra and Neptune in Virgo, the signature of our Founding Fathers' secret/invisible/covert (Neptune) government (Saturn) with our natal out-of-bounds Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn grasping hidden reins of control and manipulation from the beginning of our nation's founding and before.

Ben Franklin dies amidst his Uranus Return w natal Mars rising

Founding Father Benjamin Franklin was born on January 17, 1706 at what most agree was approximately 10:30 am LMT in Boston, Massachusetts which gives him a robust ascending degree of 7 Aries 19 for its is ruled by active Mars.

Now I want to go into Franklin's death horoscope a little since I discovered in a biography of him by Sidney George Fisher that the physician on the scene provided Franklin's time of death as "about 11 o'clock at night."

Here are the details of when Benjamin left us:

Death of Benjamin Franklin April 17, 1790 10:55 pm (5 mins before 11 pm is my choice) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This gives an Ascendant degree of 20Sag07 and his natal Mars rising. As you know, in death horoscopes there is generally at least one malefic planet on a chart angle and here what can be more malefic than Mars, planet of infections and attacks?

(Note: his natal Mars degree and death Ascendant @21Sag have an apt Sabian Symbol for the inventor of bifocal spectacles: "A Child and a Dog with Borrowed Eyeglasses"!)

During his lifetime, Dr. Franklin suffered bouts of painful gout from overindulgence and had contracted pleurisy as well so his physician's description of his final 16 days after becoming feverish, then having an abscess on his lung burst makes for predictable results. Benjamin Franklin is naturally associated in an astrologer's mind with America's favorite planet of freedom, independence, and revolution, Uranus, and no less so than with Franklin'd death for he slipped away peacefully (for his pain had left him 5 days earlier, thankfully) during his Uranus Return period which happens to us all if we live to age 84 and after.

Ben Franklin's natal Uranus @6Leo51 Rx (conjunct US natal North Node = radical politics and reforms!) returned to its position in his natal horoscope three times in 1789/90: August 24, 1789; February 11, 1790 Rx--about 5 weeks prior to his death; and June 9, 1790. As you see, the third one he didn't manage to attend.

Now Uranus is also a planet of sudden events, attacks, and separations and rules electricity which figures into Ben Franklin's high popularity and world renown during his lifetime since he was apparently the first man to equate lightening with electricity. Yes, it seems quite duh! now but was a new idea then.

Actually his death horoscope shows a YOD (a crisis/turning point pattern with health connotations) of Venus sextile ASC (and thus sextile his natal Mars, his chart-ruler) pointing toward disruptive Uranus @5Leo20 (Leo, ruled by the Sun which rules the heart and spine) in the 8th house of Death and Transformation. And this Uranus is in the midst of Franklin's Uranus Return which is obvious because his age at death was 84 years + 3 months.

Well, that's my brief bit of blogging time for today so I hope you may add Benjamin Franklin's death horoscope to your files if you haven't already for it displays several other features, patterns, and transits which you may find quite interesting.

A Monetary Echo from Adams' 1787 Letter to Jefferson?

Of Money Lenders, French Debt, and All the Domestic Debt

by Jude Cowell

Sometimes when I find an interesting date in history upon which an event occurred, I like to calculate a horoscope for it to spot check what was being reflected between the Earth and the Cosmos for, As Above, So Below. In lieu of an event's exact hour, noon is usually used, or perhaps midnight or sunrise.

One such event is a letter from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson dated August 25, 1787, sent from Grovenor Square, London. The following is probably the most famous excerpt from this particular missive which is part of a discussion between them concerning such financial topics as "Money Lenders", "the French Debt", and "the Domestic Debt of the Unites States" which "might be transferred to Holland," writes Mr. Adams to Mr. Jefferson. Wonder if Adams' insights may be worth considering in light of our current predicament?

"All the Perplexities, Confusions and Distresses in America arise not from defects in their Constitutions or Confederation, not from a want of Honour or Virtue, So much as from downright Ignorance of the Nature of Coin, Credit and Circulation."

And yes, the sentiment has been expressed by others and in various ways. But this is correspondence between two of our Founding Rosicrucian-Freemason-Illuminatists so what planetary transits or links may have been influencing their discussion via America's natal planets (July 4, 1776) as Adams mentions these monetary topics?

August 25, 1787 London, England noon: Sun 2Vir07 at Midheaven (1Vir38), Moon 24Cap16 in 3rd house of Communications; transiting South Node of the Moon, a separative point, conjoins US natal Venus (money, evaluations) in early Cancer along with our national Jupiter @5Can56; both tr Mars and tr Jupiter are in Gemini and in 8th house of Debt and Credit (at noon) with Jupiter expanding the plans of our national Mars (energy, action, motivation, males) so we know that growth and development are on the menu and that male relationships are favored within fortunate working conditions.

At noon, it's a Mercury Hour, a good time to sit right down and pen someone a letter and with Mercury @25Leo18 and Rx in 9th house of Foreign Lands, we see that this letter is but one of a series on themes that have been discussed before (Rx.) Pluto Rx and Saturn Rx are in Aquarius which marks 1787 as an era of scientific advancement; Mars @19Gem26 shows the date to be within the waning days of an American Mars Return as a new 2-year cycle of activity is in preparation and will begin soon.

As you know, a YOD is a crisis pattern of special tasks and turning points and one is formed here between Mercury, Jupiter, and the Moon which denotes lively women in the environment--perhaps older ladies (Cap)--and many lively exchanges of thought--here, between Adams and Jefferson for the rift in their relationship had yet to occur.

The letter's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series is the initial Total Solar Eclipse (June 15, 1787) in the 5 New South Saros Series and indicates that 'good news, long term benefits, and peak experiences' were enjoyed (Brady.)

A Uranian Surprise?

And with America's 'totem planet', Uranus @28Can04, we see a transit in play whereby America's natal Pluto Rx @27Cap33 is opposed by rebellious genius Uranus which implies that a clash between younger (Uranus) and older (Pluto) generations is in effect and concerns how resources should be handled; also, established sources of political power are disrupted or eliminated entirely thanks to the catalyzing tendencies of The Awakener, Uranus.

With Uranus in Aries now squaring Pluto in Capricorn (off and on until 2015), perhaps that last paragraph resounds a bit through the centuries and reflects Washington's current Capitol Hill antics which they continue to play act for us rather than seriously engaging in the governing we expected.

Curiously, the day's Sun Vir-Moon Cap (Mercury-Saturn) blend is shared natally by financier J.P. Morgan, Sr., and last manifested on November 23, 2003 @1Sag14.

2012 into 2014: Syria's natal chart hit by authoritarian Saturn

Knuckle Under for Global Government...or Else

by Jude Cowell

It's official: as long suspected, Washington's Pentagon intends to topple yet another regime in the Middle East as evidenced by this week's White House announcement (which neocon war hawk John McCain "stepped on" on the Senate floor) that military aid will be sent to anti-Assad rebels in Syria. This is a ramp-up from the night goggles the US previously sent and an increase of militarism to ostensibly bolster the training and support the CIA is already providing there.

That the weapons the US provides will sooner or later fall into the wrong hands and be turned against our forces seems certain, imho. We're such patsies!

Well, former President Bill Clinton approves of America stepping into the fray of the sectarian war in Syria and he doesn't think popular opinion in the US matters a bit. In a well-rehearsed and scripted moment, Clinton says Obama's decision to involve the US in yet another war is "trending in the right direction." That direction, as some of us believe, is the internationalists' long term plan to march the world toward a 'new world order' where national sovereignty will be a thing of the past ('the old order'.)

(Besides, toppling governments and other structures is one of Pluto in Capricorn's favorite tasks and he's coping with it as he plods along.)

Yes, "the past" and "the old order", the status quo and authoritarianism finger the Assad regime and all are under the province of planet Saturn which now, @5Sco16 Rx as I type, is poised to stomp over Syria's 12th house planets in Scorpio: Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun. As you know, the Unconscious 12th house denotes Politics, Karma, Secret Deals, Self-Undoing, and Large Institutions, and I'm looking at the Assad coup 1970 natal horoscope set for sunrise (a coup at dawn) on November 13, 1970 with Sun and ASC @20Sco22, Moon (the people) @18Tau33 conjunct natal Saturn @19Tau01 Rx, both in 6th house of Military and Police Service.

As you see by the 6th house conjunction's degrees, the current Solar Eclipse @19Tau31 'eclipsed' Syria's Moon-Saturn conjunction on May 9, 2013 (15 South Saros Series: 'a sudden release of tension but with a sense of grief or loss that's more collective than personal'--Brady.) Apparently the Assad government's 'restriction' and rule of the Syrian people is nearing its end. If there can be any up side to US involvement in this sectarian conflict (and proxy war between Russia and the US), I hope that is it though who or what will be propped up in Assad's position of power is anyone's guess.

So now in June 2013, as restrictive, depressive Saturn prepares to hit natal Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and Ascendant, we find the Task Master also threatens opposition to Syria's natal Moon-Saturn conjunction with December 2013 the most difficult month. As you know, Saturn is a karmic planet (reaping what was sown) that brings along changes and loss if responsibilities have not been honestly dealt with in the past, and regrets ensue. Gassing one's population, if it did occur, can be tucked into that category in Mr. Assad's column. Click above to view Syria's 1970 horoscope (with 2012 transits added) and you'll see gaseous Neptune now wafting its murky through Syria's natal 4th house of Domestic Scene.

Or, considering America's natal and problematic Mars-Neptune square of militarism, misguided actions, and misdirected energy, is the propaganda campaign touting intervention in another region where we don't belong only sending US troops into yet another 'fog of war' with little if any clear outcome?

Tragically, there's another far-away sound being heard underneath empiric Washington's drum beat to war and I think it's America's Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves at the mess we've made of their Enlightenment experiment, America.

You may also wish to view or review my version of the Summer Solstice 2013 horoscope set for Washington DC with the summer's power-wielding, regime-toppling 10th house (world stage) Pluto in Capricorn squaring rebellious Uranus in their titanic struggle for control.

Ben Franklin on "a prime cause of the Revolution"

"The refusal of King George III to allow the Colonies to operate an honest money system which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the Revolution."

Benjamin Franklin

And with the early establishment of an English financial system of banks in America, Thomas Jefferson thought that Alexander Hamilton "cooked the books."

So other than book-cooking from the start, things have remained the same--murky--through the ensuing decades, haven't they? In fact, the US government is a corporation, not a government! If they had to prove themselves a government, they couldn't do so.

Here's a 43-minute video presentation, All Wars Are Bankers' Wars:

Plus, you may wish to check out a previous post on Andrew Jackson and his efforts to beat back his era's central banksters ("vipers.") The post includes a link to President Jackson's First Inaugural Address which sadly remains quite pertinent to the purposefully manufactured financial crises of our day.

The Natal Horoscope and Character of George Washington

Towering Figures in Early US History w the Natal Chart of George Washington

by Jude Cowell

Chuck Baldwin's Founders Without Whom America Would Not Exist gives more detail of the usual crew than if our Founding Fathers could sign up with LinkedIn but not so much that reading them interferes with your July 4th celebration!

George Washington's Natal Horoscope

Here you see the natal horoscope of The Father of Our Country, George Washington, born February 22, 1732 NS (OS = Feb 11) Colonial Beach, Virginia at a recorded time of 10:00 am LMT (probably rounded off but who can say? Its Rodden Rating is AA so I'm going with 10:00 am.)

Hour of responsible, authoritarian Saturn; chart-ruler is Venus 29Pis24 which applies to only one major aspect: a conjunction with staid Saturn 2Ari41 showing that he took himself seriously. As you see, both planets snug around 12th cusp of Politics, Karma, and The Unconscious. Washington is known for having visions and for prizing loyalty and commitment, both traits which may be found in his Venus-Saturn-12th-cusp picture.

Plus, the archetypal "Father of Our Country" label along with the usual serious expression he affected in portraits (and in life, I've read, usually ascribed to his lifelong dental problems) may be seen in the Sabian Symbol for natal Venus @'30Pis' = "The Great Stone Face" with face relating to Venus and stone an obvious Saturn reference. Plus, as you know, Washington's visage is captured on stony Mount Rushmore.

George Washington is well-known for mystical tendencies (he was a Grand Poo-Bah of Freemasonry and may be viewed in portraits wearing his Masonic apron--he owned two apparently--here are good photos of an apron on display in the Lodge at Philadelphia--and these are in large part indicated by Sun in Pisces (as has Mitt Romney along with natal Mercury and Mars) and by Neptune in 1st house of Self. Neptune is in Gemini (the youth who served the gods) which is ruled by Mercury (the messenger of the gods) which creates a Mercury-Neptune vibe in his psyche relating to...mysticism and visions which are further encouraged by a Neptune-Pluto trine, and NN in Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker on a Quest, in the 8th H of The Occult.

In addition, warring Mars in occult-studying Scorpio, sign of the Eagle, lends more mysticism to his personality bwo Scorpio along with a strong Mars-Pluto streak. Interestingly (and perhaps you can read a notation of it if you enlarge the chart) Mars is focal planet of the Pluto/NN midpoint which gave him potential for an exhibition of personal power and/or tyranny. (Tyl.) Perhaps this brutality is best seen in General Washington's quick execution of deserters though fighting and leading in war is proof enough for me.

And yet without his ambitious Capricorn Moon, the General might never have had the reigning need to become a political leader such as a President, a rise in status which is supported by the natal chart's hemispheric emphasis on the Public sector (7/3) including n Moon in 9th H. And of course, his military career is seen in the 6th H of Military Service with the very powerful yet wide conjunction of Jupiter (The General) and Pluto (the Poo-Bah of Control) in Libra, a sign of war. This also shows the Revolution's financial support from foreign sources.

And of course you see Washington's IC (Foundation of the Matter; the HOW? Point) @'30 Cancer' = "A Daughter of the American Revolution"!

(M.E. Jones.)

Another aid to him in war and politics was his 10th H Mercury 6AQ33 at focal point of the Saturn-Uranus midpoint which supplied him with the ability to hit back hard under provocation along with a natural talent for organization. Mercury rules 2nd H of Earning Ability and Values so Washington was no slacker in the moneymaking department of life. Inheritance is shown by SN in 2nd H and NN in 8th H.

Considering that Washington's refusal to be crowned 'king' of America is much-touted along with his walking away from the power of the presidency, it's curious to me that (if his birth time is correct or nearly so), Pluto and Ascendant are inconjunct (150 degr) denoting that he volunteered his services, was recognized as having a strong character, smoldered inside if anyone revealed his weaknesses, and had secret hopes that opportunities would present themselves to show what he could accomplish if given the authority to do so.

As we know, quite a few opportunities did...

Full Moon 7.3.12 inspires video embed of Mysterious Structures

The Entire Sign of Capricorn a Mystical Labyrinth

by Jude Cowell

On July 3, 2012 a Full Moon occurs at 12Cap14 at 2:52 pm edt (Washington DC), the day prior to America's Independence Day 2012. Using the rounding-up method to determine degrees, the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon of July 3rd is '13Cap' = "A Fire Worshiper" which relates to how man knows he must "--demonstrate his ultimate independence of his circumstances or else surrender his own potentialities forever. Here is ideality brought to the point of miracle. The keyword is MAGIC. When positive, the degree is extraordinary skill in enlisting every resource of the world for the exaltation of self and the consummation of its ambitions; negative: consistent overestimation of personal capacity."

Now in Campaign 2012, we are being encouraged--or propagandized, depending on your political viewpoint--by President Obama to move in a Forward direction, or, as some say, to Lean Forward. Then let's do so now with the July 3rd Full Moon and consider the next degree's symbol--'14Cap', for it is after all the Illumination Point of America's natal Sun degree @14Cancer (Sun = the leader) which will be triggered on July 4th at America's 236th birthday--a ritual of sorts:

'14Cap' = "An Ancient Bas-Relief Carved in Granite" relates to "--the ability of man to capitalize on opportunities thus brought to focus in himself and his world at large again and again. Here is an absoluteness of self as it proceeds to express itself with a true conviction, and a completeness of its achievement as it acts with the over-all perspective of which it is capable. The keyword is FOUNDATION. When positive, the degree is a gift for bringing all things into a pattern of convenience and thereupon precipitating an inevitability of desired results; negative: meaningless limitation."

(Source: The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones born Oct 1, 1888 8:37 am St. Louis, MO: ASC 10Sco08, Sun 8Lib50, Moon 16Leo34, Mercury 3Sco01, Venus 00Sco50, Mars 14Sag15, Jupiter 3Sag08, Saturn 17Leo14, Uranus 17Lib04, Neptune 2Gem08 Rx, Pluto 5Gem44 Rx, 3rd cusp = '12Cap'; as given by the author himself.)

And so, having '14Cap' prominent in my own natal chart, I hereby embed the following 43-minute video from which was sent along by the excellent Forbidden Knowledge TV and illuminates all manner of ancient bas-reliefs, megaliths, henges of stone, and other mysteriously built monuments and observatories, as well as constellations such as Cygnus the Swan (or, The Vulture in some cultures.)

But this blogging Capricorn of a Saturnian Astrology persuasion isn't an 'alien-UFO' sort of gal so the video is presented in a spirit of entertainment for our July 4th holiday yet is meant also for those with archaeological interests, or even those with an artistic eye!

Now when the narrator goes into the "did aliens build it?" mode, that's when I feel expected to "strain at a gnat and swallow a camel" to paraphrase Scripture. For it seems much more likely to me that the mathematical principles--natural laws--which undergird our Universe and the architectural forms with which great structures were built in ancient eras--pyramids being a prime example--were discovered and understood by various cultures throughout history, or, as is probably the case--the knowledge of which were passed down through generations and this is how great structures such as cathedrals and henges were constructed in many spots all over the globe.

Why, the 'Sacred Geometry' of Freemasonry (aka, the Architecture of the Universe) is a perfect example of this passing down of information which provides mankind with the templates for understanding and utilizing universal principles as set forth by The Great Mathematician, our Creator.

Just look at the architecture of Washington DC and think of all the Founding Fathers who are known to have been Freemasons. If the Capitol Building and other structures in The District (with their domes topped by artful representations of goddess Venus as Isis, Freedom, Columba, Innana, etc) aren't Masonic 'temples', I'll lunch upon this keyboard...

Okay, I'll hush for now...enjoy!

Q: Did you know there's a Labyrinth Society? Neither did I.
