Lachlan Murdoch: Pluto = Sun-Uranus

by Jude Cowell, on behalf of democracy and the common good

Yesterday the news broke of a major transition at the head of Fox and Fox News Corp, that Papa Rupert had anointed son Lachlan Murcdoch to carry on; however, Papa says he'll be "watching." Apparently, Lachlan has been "groomed" since birth to carry the Murdoch family torch - now, into an uncertain future. Word is that Laclan is more authoritarian than his father, but Laclan did, after all, have an experienced teacher. Notable is that yesterday into today, the Sun conjoins Lachlan's natal Pluto so his power potential (carrying his Sun-Uranus 'radical reformist' vibes) are in the spotlight, a global spotlight.

Below, see the aspect grid of multiple squares and oppositions within their dynamic relationship. Even their natal Suns are in opposite signs!

Born with a significant midpoint picture of power, rebellion, radical reforms, and a potential for tragedy (Pluto = Sun-Uranus), Mr. Murdoch the Younger is a radical reformer (R. Ebertin) so this is one spot in his psyche where authoritarianism can creep in. Apparently, Fox and Fox News Corp are in for additional changes and shifts which may have already begun. Let's watch for shake-ups!

Plutocrat Pluto: Power, Control, Manipulation, Exploitation, Extreme Wealth, The Underworld

So here's the natal horoscope of the 'new boss, same as the old boss':

Lachlan Murdoch born September 8, 1971 9:00 pm CET (RR: C) Wimbledon, UK; a sprinkling of study notes are added including a few details re: his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE'), the 9 New South, which repeats on September 21, 2025 @29Virgo conjunct his natal Pluto (see lower right corner):

And here's an aspect grid between father and son:

And btw, do you know that a German Media Baron Aided the Rise of Hitl*r?

Related: Rupert Murdoch's natal chart and Prenatal Solar Eclipse (contains a link to a 2015 Business Insider article about Rupert "stepping down" and "handing the reins to his son" but Papa will still have a "voice." As we say, history does rhyme (and sometimes does repeat).

The Fall of Tucker Carlson, and the Making of Candace Owens - The New Yorker Radio Hour


For the self-styled "angry forgotten man" Tucker Carlson on SO'W there's only one Astrology offering so far, but unfortunately more such posts may have to appear especially if he runs for the presidency: On the Eclipse of Tucker Carlson whose natal Sun in late Taurus conjuncts angry Algol and asteroid Midas, lover of gold. Yes, Tucker was born into the 7 North Saros Series and a repetition of his personal Eclipse Series, the 7 North, is operative right now since manifesting @29Ari50 on April 20, 2023, the anniversary of Herr Adolf's birthday.

Then Along Comes Expansive Jupiter

Adding to current eclipse energies is transit Jupiter, planet of broadcasters, politicians, financiers, religious figures, corporatists, and fatty grubs like agent orange (who just today has been ordered to pay E. Jean Carroll $5 million for assaulting and defaming her). For Jupiter has reached 29 Aries+ which expands the energies and influence of the current 7 North Eclipse with its themes of blood 'lust, deep passion that catches people off-guard' (Brady). 'Caught off-guard' such as Tucker's recent, sudden firing from his Fox program. Meanwhile, Jupiter conjunct the 7 North Eclipse indicates the variety of immoral activities now occurring in society, with their influence widened.

So if I had to select an immoral activity or two being symbolized, even activated, now in US society it would be the May 10, 2023 'Trump Townhall' to be broadcast Friday night on CNN from St. Anselm College (Goffstown, NH), with the college's motto of: Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Psalms 111:10). Well, due to his godless behavior and being himself a prince of lies, this explains one of the many reasons that Herr Trump is a one of the dumbest morons ever to walk the Earth.

Then another big honkin' immoral activity is the pro-Hitler event of May 12-13, 2023 to be held at the Trump National Doral, Miami. Plus, we should also note that transit Jupiter is conjuncting the position of militia man Mars @29Ari54 during the maga coup attempt of January 6, 2021 which used primal violence with the intention of stopping or interfering with the peaceful transfer of power from saboteur Trump to President Joe Biden.

In other words, it's a Jupiter conjunct Mars transit which times a period of attraction to physical events, travel, and male-based activities. The caution is that participants must avoid overconfidence in the potential success of an enterprise since it may collapse under its own weight.

German Media Baron Aided Rise of Hitler

Vorwärts, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

Forward!, They Said

by Jude Cowell

Today, April 20 2023, "Little Adolf," the Austrian psychopath turns 134 years old in his grave, wherever it may be. But to be more specific, his Solar Return 2023 actually perfects tomorrow, April 21, 2023 at 6:02:11 am CEDT in Berlin with his natal Sun (00Tau48) conjunct Phaethon rising (unprepared for leadership and Sun at a degree of violence).

Radical planet of anarchy, sedition, and zealotry, Uranus, rises in his 2023 Solar Return 1st house @17Tau52, one degree beyond Herr Adolf's natal Venus-Mars conjunction @16Taurus+, a planetary duo active during our Midterms 2022 Lunar Eclipse when 'maga' Republicans managed to take over the House of Representatives.

In fact, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan has been in New York City showcasing his maga efforts for Trump, and a Trump-appointed judge has handed Jordan a legal gift which only adds fuel to the orange monster's gas tank for more 'Big Lie' gas lighting ahead.

Yet none of the above are reasons for this Friday post.

What I want to share with you is that while reading about the rise of Herr Adolf, I came across the name of the media baron, industrialist, and politician who, among others, aided the Austrian's rise to power. Soon sidelined, his name is Alfred Hugenberg. Holding multiple official positions in the German government, Hugenberg helped Hitler become Chancellor on January 30, 1933, Germany's first goose-step toward Nazism. Yet Herr Hugenberg, who had studied law and economics, had lost his political clout with Hitler by the end of 1933 but continued serving as a "guest" member of the Reichstag (parliament).

And like other of Hitler's early enablers, Hugenberg miscalculated bigly that Herr Adolf would be easily controlled once in power. Might this be echoed by certain assumptions made by the Republican Party in 2015 and 2016 concerning you-know-who?

Related: Reichstag Fire Horoscope and Donald Trump.

Now if the initial support of publisher Hugenberg for Hitler (until Alfred was tossed aside!) reminds you of Murdoch for Trump (until Trump turned on Fox News toward the more conducive outlets, NewsMax and OANN - while actually it was more a case of Murdoch turning against Trump for not conceding his 2020 loss) - then basically we're on the same history-rhyming page. Parallels and cosmic time links exist between the two men for a curious seeker to discover, not the least of which is the repetition of Rupert's natal 4 South Eclipse on Electoral Vote Count Day 2020.

So subsequently, an idea ocurred to me to look for Alfred Hugenberg in the back of The Sabian Symbols in Astrology (M.E. Jones #ad) and there he was: birth time and all. So in case you're one of the curious, here's Hitler-enabler Alfred's birth data according to Dr. Jones, plus, a few astro-notes and contact details:

Alfred Christian Alexander Hugenberg

June 19, 1865 11:45 pm LMT

Hanover, Germany

Prenatal Solar Eclipse Total @5Tau21 in the 11 South Saros Series: 'systems and methods fail; unions suddenly end; any blocks are tragically or violently removed' (B. Brady).

Natal Ascendant 16Pis23; Midheaven 24Sag53 conjunct Jupiter Rx @23Sag32 (publishing) opposing at IC his Sun @28Gem34 conjunct Uranus @29Gem34 = an unpredictable non-conformist (A. Oken); Hugenberg's natal North Node of destiny conjuncts Herr Adolf's natal Ascendant in late Libra (a personal relationship; estrangement or separation); Alfred's natal Venus @16Tau43 conjuncts Adolf's natal Venus-Mars conjunction so he may have seemed charming to Alfred early on; however, they share a Mars-Saturn contact which suggests potentials for 'destructive energy, separation, and cases of death' (R. Ebertin).

Publishers Hugenberg and Murdoch

Meanwhile, the natal planetary contacts between the two demagogue-supporting publishers, media baron Alfred Hugenberg ('AH'), born 1865, and media titan Rupert Murdoch ('RM'), born 1931, are worth mentioning. They include:

RM Moon @24Sag08 conjunct AH natal Midheaven-Jupiter Rx (publicity, plus, money via publishing); instinctively, Rupert knew what had to be done for his natal Moon was 'eclipsed' by the 4 South Eclipse of December 14, 2020 when sore-loser Trump's belly-achin' shifted into overdrive. Driven by desperate motivations from near and far, sensitive old Donald refused to concede, and he was, and remains, bu*t-hurt.

RM 4 South Total Prenatal Solar Eclipse @27Lib46 (October 21, 1930) conjunct AH natal North Node - and conjunct Hitler's natal Ascendant. Now as you may remember, 4 South ('strong emotions over money and/or relationships; frustration; ending alliances' - B. Brady) is the series in which the Total Electoral Vote Count Eclipse manifested on December 14, 2020 @23Sag08, and which functioned as a cosmic signal for promoting the resentful, vengeful Herr Trump's 'Big Lie' that allegedly 'justified' his violent coup attempt of January 6, 2021 against the US Congress - not to "stop the steal" but to perpetrate it.

Also related the Horoscope of the Third Reich of January 30, 1933.

On the Solar Eclipse of Tucker Carlson

March 17, 2022

by Jude Cowell

The natal horoscope of Fox News personality Tucker McNear Carlson overflows with enraged Algol influences - spotlighted by his natal Sun @25Tau38 which also conjoins Midas! - and with a Taurus Moon conjunct fixed star Alcyone ('something to cry about'). No, Carlson's natal chart is not appearing here today because - well, because I don't want it here. His Sun-Midas conjunction to me implies that his life's goal (Sun) is to acquire the gold of Midas, or to become a Midas figure. Obviously, the fellow was born that way. And also born with an unaspected Saturn which can indicate someone without a conscience. For strong political views and a tendency toward debate, we see his Mercury-Mars opposition across the Mercury-Jupiter Gemini-Sagittarius polarity of ethics which also indicates that he loves to hear the sound of his own voice (A. Oken). For Tucker, making mountains out of molehills is a talent, and his views can often flip-flop due to the opposition, plus, the Seesaw shape of his natal planets.

So with this post, let's make note of the fact that the 'PE' (Prenatal Solar Eclipse) Saros Series that baby Tucker was born into with influences that run in the background of his life, is the 7 North which perfected on March 18, 1969 @27Pis25 with themes of 'passion' and 'lust' (B. Brady), plus, a theme that unfortunately it seems fit to add due to current circumstances: bloodlust.

My point is, a 7 North Eclipse repeats on April 20, 2023 @29Aries50 (in Carlson's 10th house of Career and Public Standing - secrets revealed? a change of direction?). Meanwhile, a 7 North manifestation was, in February 1933, what I've been compelled to label the 'Fascism Rising Eclipse', primarily because the Reichstag Fire, Hitler's false flag op used to help justify his power grab of the German government and what was to come, occurred under the auspices of the 1933 manifestation of a 7 North Eclipse.

Forewarned Is Forearmed

So if such be-prepared topics interest you, I recommend a view of the Third Reich Horoscope of January 30, 1933 (Campion chart #126) showing 25Tau34 rising along with fixed star Algol and the Sun-Midas conjunction of Tucker Carlson, busy making his income by promoting totalitarianism on-air. And naturally, you'll also recognize the late degrees of possessive, sometimes intolerant Taurus as the natal Midheaven, the Goal Point, of one Herr Tr*mp where violent Algol twinkles maliciously with malevolent intent, as we've seen.

As for the erstwhile Fox News personality and shill-for-Putin, Tucker Carlson recently broadcasted his program from Orban's Hungary. So in closing, here's an excerpt from a previous post with the founding data for Hungary:

"Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes (#ad) provides two charts for 'Hungary': #149 November 13, 1918 12:00 CET Budapest; ASC 00AQ02; MC 28Sco05; and 'Hungary - Democratic' #150 set for October 23, 1989 12:00 CET Budapest; ASC 7Cap20; MC 8Sco18."

Kevin Drum says Fox 'News' Broke America

September 19, 2021: Perhaps you caught it already but in case you didn't you might want to check out progressive broadcaster and muckraker Brad Friedman's September 17th podcast which includes his guest journalist Kevin Drum on How Fox 'News' Broke America.

On Twitter he's kdrum, plus you can find Mr. Friedman there too tweeting as TheBradBlog.


And speaking of the undermining of America, disinformation, propaganda, and attacks on democracy, here's an astro-question for you: what does the Saturn-Pluto duo have to do with Nixon's Southern Strategy?

Two Horoscopes: Christopher Ruddy w Newsmax TV

December 16, 2020: With the holidays fast approaching and my typing time growing briefer each day, here's a quick posting of a bi-wheel of horoscopes. Inner is a speculatively timed (by Moon to 00Cap00:00 because a personality blend of Sun AQ-Moon Cap seems to me to suit Mr. Ruddy better than an AQ-Sag combo of energies but check out both blends if you're curious) natal chart for NewsmaxTV founder and CEO, Christopher Ruddy, journalist and author of a book about the 'strange death' of Vince Foster, along with a 6:00 am est horoscope for the launching of NewsmaxTV (NYC; exact hour of first broadcast unknown). Besides operating from Manhattan, the network also maintains headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida, and Sugar Land, Texas.

For as you know, during these closing days of the Trump 'administration' multiple suggestions of a Trump foray into broadcasting have been floated, plus, the White House denizen apparently favors NewsmaxTV over Fox TV for his political entertainment and soapbox. Perhaps you noticed that in July 2020, Trump encouraged viewers to "dump Fox News" after Fox reported poll numbers that infuriated him. Tsk. He also suggested the pro-Trump OANN (One America News Network) as an alternate option.

Bi-Wheel inner: Christopher Ruddy January 28, 1965 "9:21:14 pm" est Mineola, New York (he grew up on Long Island, says his Wikipedia bio); outer: 'NewsmaxTV launched' June 16, 2014 "6:00 am est" New York City (Eastside Manhattan):

Chris Ruddy's potential Sun AQ-Moon Cap's 'Images for Integration': "A revolutionary is elected president...An alien civilization comes to Earth to rescue man from imminent destruction." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey #ad). Note that this is the natal Sun-Moon blend of freakish author Ayn Rand, inventor Thomas Edison, and President Abraham Lincoln.

Now most of my study notes are penned on the chart/s, as you see, but let's close with the themes of the Solar Eclipses that Ruddy and NewsmaxTV were 'born' or hatched into. Ruddy's is the 2 South Saros Series @11Sag55: "joining unusual groups and receiving a great deal from it" (last 2 South occurred @15Capricorn on January 5, 2019 as the 116th's 'New Congress Eclipse').

NewsmaxTV's 'Prenatal' Solar Eclipse @8Tau51 ('PE") fell into the 16 South Saros Series with themes of "issues of wasted energy or misdirected motivation especially in groups; no real action should be taken" (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology #ad).

Significantly, the Halloween 2020 Full Moon @8Tau38 conjunct transit Uranus, planet of disruption and chaos, intensely activated or spotlighted the themes of the NewsmaxTV Solar Eclipse (conjunct by degree). However, radical zealot Uranus the anarchist is quite capable of disruption and upheaval even without the laser focus of a Full Moon acting much like a revealing Lunar Eclipse.

DC Horoscopes: February 2019 New and Full Moons

Left: New Moon @15AQ45 February 4, 2019 White House Washington DC; Hour of Mars @23Ari31 in the very visible 10th house and approaching 'wild card' planet Uranus. This explosive planetary pair blend their energies during 'dangerous times' and there is US natal Saturn (legalities, justice system, Robert Mueller) conjunct the New Moon IC, the Basis of the Matter. This New Moon phase culminates with the Full Moon of February 19, 2019 @00Vir42 conjunct royal Regulus ('success if revenge is avoided') and the natal Ascendant (and Mars) of Donald J. Trump.

Now as you see, transit Saturn (highlighted in blue, 6th house) @15Cap22 conjoins the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') prior to this New Moon, an eclipse which perfected on the evening of January 5, 2019 and will forever be imprinted upon the opening of the 116th Congress with its theme of 'joining a new or unusual group and gaining a great deal' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology). Our newly elected House representatives of the Democratic persuasion certainly did that!

Below right is the February 19, 2019 Full Moon conjunct Regulus horoscope which shows asteroid Nemesis rising ('the unbeatable foe' or, 'divine retribution') in Gemini along with gold-hoarding Midas. The Full Moon falls across the Virgo-Pisces victim-savior axis and squares fixed star Alcyone ('something to cry about'). Follow the link for my original post which was composed prior to the brutal Trump Shutdown which began at midnight on December 22, 2018 so I'm thinking the cosmic picture here refers to the suffering of the American people and Trump's sabotage of the US economy using as an excuse his vanity project 'the wall' that he and Republicans could have funded and built during the two years they had control of House and Senate. The timing of the Trump Shutdown leveled extreme stress upon federal workers coming just before Christmas, and I believe that Trump was encouraged to time it to prevent much of the 116th Congress/Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House publicity from taking over the airwaves. Plus, Trump wanted a 'showdown' with Speaker Pelosi and to present her with a crisis to deal with instead of the progressive agenda (he hoped)--why else wait for her swearing in as Speaker? Of course, Sean Hannity of Fox News and the other Murdoch shills advised him of this necessity and as you know, power-grabber Trump hates it when someone or an event takes away what he considers 'his' spotlight. Alcyone's tears of affected federal workers and others with no paychecks with which to feed their children are of no consideration for we know what Trump has already done to children.

Yet predictably, if Big T can figure out how to end his Shutdown without too much humiliation, he'll attempt to claim the 'savior' side of the Virgo-Pisces axis! That's unless 25% of the US government inactive is the permanent condition the GOP has longed for all these years. If so, 25% may be just the start with full collapse their ultimate goal (and Putin's).

So please enlarge the images for more chart details for relief may be in sight because the expected revelations from the Mueller investigation are apparently part of the lunations' revealing and uncovering functions in February which will lead into the March 2019 Lunations of Crisis for New and Full Moons can uncover inconvenient facts and secrets much as Solar and Lunar Eclipses do in their disruptive Uranian 'wild card' sort of way. And often it takes a crisis to lead ultimately to improvement!

Astro-Notes on Heather Nauert: next UN Ambassador?

Image: 'Neptune Ascends'

by Jude Cowell

Donald Trump's choice for UN ambassador to replace Nikki Haley is former Fox News personality Heather Nauert born January 27, 1970 in Rockford, Illinois. Follow the link for a few bio details on her life and a view of a speculative natal horoscope for her (birth hour unknown).

If confirmed to the UN post, Ms. Nauert will be the least experienced ambassador to the United Nations in US history with a diplomacy resume as thin as my own! Yet a communicator she is, and quite Airy, too, as we can see from her natal planets. I won't bother posting her 'noon' natal chart here since it's only a possibility that she'll be confirmed by the Senate. In her favor? She's a Fox alumni, blonde, and Mike Pompeo and John Bolton seem to be in her corner along with Mr. Trump so we'll see how her confirmation hearing goes.

And the downgrading of her UN position from Cabinet-level is being pushed by Pompeo and Bolton thanks to Trump who intends to run the show entirely and carry Putin's water on the global stage as far as the 'United' Nations goes.

Well, you know how astrological Neptune likes to downgrade, downplay, dissolve, undermine, deceive, disappoint, merge, infect, and confuse, right? Well, the Nauert-UN saga seems right on time since the first Mars Return to Trump's 2017 Inauguration horoscope (24Pis21) will perfect on December 23, 2018 at 11:20:54 am est, and in Washington DC, guess what rises at that moment? Why, Neptune @13Pis55, of course! Ascendant = 13Pis58 and Heather Nauert's natal North Node, a point of public contact, falls at 12Pis11 or so.

And if we round up to '14Pisces' for Neptune-ASC's Sabian Symbol we discover "A Lady in Fox Fur," aka, Heather Nauert. Now some pundits are saying that Ms. Nauert as UN Ambassador is in for a world of hurt. Astrologically I'd say that the December 23rd Neptune-ASC-NN trio in the Trump Inauguration's Mars Return chart suggests potentials for rumor, deception, hurt through others, and being duped (Tyl) for this Lady in Fox Fur. Master-of-disguise Neptune must supply Ms. Nauert with quite a weighty mask to wear in New York! And to New York I suspect she will go for the January 5, 2019 Solar Eclipse @15Capricorn activates her natal Mercury in Capricorn with its eclipse theme of: "joining a new group and gaining a great deal" (Brady). For even if downgraded from a Cabinet-level position, a UN ambassadorship would be a lucrative step up for Heather Nauert after a brief stint as State Department spokesperson.

And if Nauert's personality blend of Sun AQ-Moon Libra is the case instead of a Water-Earth Sun AQ-Moon Virgo blend (if born not very long after midnight) which tends toward puritanism and a nit-picking attitude toward others, her double Air combination of energies suggests she is civilized, sociable, charming, broad-minded, and humanitarian with a good intellect. The AQ-Libra blend is shared by author Boris Pasternak and I shall end this post with an extremely appropriate quote from him which may very well remind you of someone we both hear from ad nauseum every single day,

"As for men in power, they are so anxious to establish the myth of infallibility that they do their utmost to ignore truth."

More Astro-Notes: Sean Hannity Part 2

In Part One of my astro-peek at FOX News anchor Sean Hannity we discussed a few basic chart factors and I linked you to a view of his natal horoscope. Today let's consider his Sun-Moon blend and the personality these conscious-unconscious energies describe along with his Prenatal Solar Eclipse Saros Series and its themes.

Born December 30, 1961 (see Part One for more details), Mr. Hannity's natal Sun is in Saturn-ruled Capricorn and his Moon is in Venus-ruled Libra, an Earth-Air blend which provides the capacity to be down-to-earth yet up-in-the-air simultaneously as rationality and abstract ideas combine. Here is a practical idealist who plans, then acts. However, losing touch with emotions is a caution for this liberal + conservative personality.

A fighter for causes, Mr. Hannity is courageous, socially aware, clear headed, opportunistic, and 'cunningly capable'. His dry wit can win friends and influence others with his gift for communication yet ignorance can unsettle him. A crusading temperament is in evidence along with a tendency to search for truth which no doubt aids his career in the news business. He does not hesitate to join battles he deems worthy, and a leaning toward always doing what's expected of him suggests that an occasional impulsive act could ease that 'stiff upper lip' of his and perhaps soften the edge of his considerable intellect.

In their book Sun Sign-Moon Sign, the Harveys give three Images for Integration to describe the Sun Cap-Moon Libra blend, any or all of which may be appropriate for Sean Hannity:

"In time an oyster turns irritating grit into a beautiful pearl...A beautiful walled garden...A visionary statesman fights a duel to see justice done."

Sean Hannity's Prenatal Solar Eclipse Series is the 18 North. Prior to Sean Patrick's birth, 18N manifested on August 11, 1961 @19Leo, solar sign of leadership, ego, and pride. But his life isn't all sunflowers because 18N themes include: a high stress level; a taxing of strength; a large expenditure of effort; physical concern such as an illness or accident (Brady). 18N has also occurred in the years 1907, 1925, 1943, (1961), 1979, 1997, and last occurred on September 13, 2015 @20Vir10--conjunct fixed star Denebola (keywords: to go against society; out of the mainstream). 18N's initial eclipse manifested on February 4, 1060 (OS) @21AQ34 so its modern-day influence should be viewed through an Aquarian lens.

Astro-Notes: FOX News anchor Sean Hannity

A Brief Peek at Sean Hannity Through an Astrological Lens

by Jude Cowell

Now that Roger Ailes, Megyn Kelly, and Bill O'Reilly have left FOX News, news reader Sean Hannity broadcasts his political views from atop the highest perch in conservative cable news. Some even say that Mr. Hannity is experiencing a renaissance and that the network now 'belongs' to him.

If you wish a view of Sean Hannity's natal chart you'll find his Sun @8Cap43, Moon @14Lib01, and Ascendant (Self; Physical Body) @8Pis53. As you see, his natal ASC and life are now under positive influences of the current 19 South Solar Eclipse of February 26, 2017 with its themes of: lucky breaks or wins, joyful events, pleasant surprises, and positive changes (Brady). Of course, these benefits are primarily for Mr. Hannity, not for the other guys and gal.

By Modified by CrazyLegsKC, original taken by Hello32020 [Public domain or Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Born on December 30, 1961 at 10:30 am est (Rodden Rating: A from memory) in Franklin Square, New York, Sean Patrick Hannity is of the Roman Catholic persuasion. His Sun squares natal Moon (Cap to Libra) and his Sun-Moon midpoint falls at 26Sco21. Mercury, planet of journalists and reporters, is in Saturn-ruled Capricorn as are Venus, Mars, and Saturn. In fact, Saturn (ruler of his Sun) is at a critical degree: 29Cap31 (in 11th house with communicator Mercury @17Cap00) with '30Cap' = "A Secret Business Conference" (Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Jones).

Notable is his natal Mercury with transit Pluto now in the Mercurial neighborhood and marking a period of increased power and control while his concerns over what's relevant and most efficient intensify. Secrets may be part of his daily environment as well.

As for the shape of Hannity's chart, we find a BOWL shape with radical Uranus leading the rest of his planets from the 6th house. At 00Virgo, natal Uranus also conjoins royal Regulus, the king or the kingmaker star (key phrase: success if revenge is avoided). Does any of this sound familiar? If so, it's most likely because Mr. Trump's natal Uranus in Gemini also leads a BOWL shape but from his 10th house, and Regulus conjoins Trump's natal Ascendant in late Leo (with warrior Mars @26Leo and rising). There are other correspondences between their planets as well, but it's now after midnight so this must be a two-part effort. I should never type after midnight!

May 1, 2017 Update: here's Part Two which includes Mr. Hannity's natal Sun-Moon personality blend and the themes of his Prenatal Solar Eclipse in the sign of the showman and entertainer, dramatic Leo.

Neptune in Pisces and the FOX News Network

Neptune, Pisces, FOX News, and Pod Caster Bill O'Reilly

Recently it would be difficult for those who follow US news at all to miss what's been going on over at FOX News: sexual harassment allegations and lawsuits, firings of on-air personalities and head harasser Roger Ailes, Donald Trump's slavish adoration of Fox and Friends anchors , and so on.

Typing as an Astrology novice, it seems curious to me how transit Neptune has floated on and around the 14th degree of the planet's own sign of Pisces with both planet and sign associated with the media, the masses, the Collective, fakery, deception, corruption, uncertainty, loss, theft, veils, obfuscation, webs and networks. And particularly since 14 Pisces is the degree with the Sabian Symbol of "A Lady in Fox Fur."

So perhaps a quote from Marc Edmund Jones may enlighten us on the meaning of this word picture which is one degree from fixed star Achernar and its keywords: 'crisis' (at the end of the river) and 'risk of rapid endings'. For that is what news reader Bill O'Reilly came up against recently via the sudden ending of his career on FOX News after major advertisers withdrew their support of his program because of O'Reilly's legal problems with women.

'14 Pisces' = "A Lady in Fox Fur":

"This is a symbol of the ever-effective dynamic with which everyday custom endows mankind, dramatized here by an individual's desire to be in style and to express opinions of momentary weight. Men are strengthened through whatever they are able to possess or do and think in common, but this is their bondage unless they are also able to contribute a creative content to their own experience. The self gains integrity as it learns never to surrender its initiative, and so adds its touch to all reality. The keyword is TASTEFULNESS. When positive, the degree is high accomplishment through a consistent representation of the self's assets in the best possible light, and when negative, amoral opportunism."

The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.

As usual, I won't add where I think several points in this description of 14 Pisces fits the network, Mr. O'Reilly, and the situation at hand because SO'W readers are perfectly capable of figuring this out for themselves--and they may disagree with my opinion if they so desire--including all you ladies in FOX fur!

In related news O'Reilly replacement Tucker Carlson says that What Bill O'Reilly Did Wasn't Easy (an unfortunate way to put it!) And in defiance of Neptune's usual deceptive practices, the now-pod-casting Mr. O'Reilly vows that the truth will come out and although the time frame for such a revelation is uncertain, the truth is awaited.

Nov 10, 2016: Thom discusses the possibility of a 'Trump TV' being created and what it could be like, along with what he sees as Trump's and the GOP's plans for governing. Thom also names just who finagled Mr. Trump into the White House:

Note: since I've never listened to Michael Savage I was slightly surprised to find that he has a book titled Scorched Earth, a phrase that has turned up several times in the public discourse this week. Republicans used 'scorched earth' tactics against Barack Obama and perhaps you recall that we discussed 'scorched earth' in relation to goddess star Sirius in my November 5th post on the new 115th Congress convening soon on a Capitol Hill near you.

Now what if the Democratic Party got together in January 2017 and determined that they would block and undermine every single thing a President Trump and his Republicans planned to do? Revenge may be 'sweet' according to some folk but, as with President Obama's presidency, it would be the American people on the losing end once again. But I guess such a result is merely part of their 'shrink the US government' plan.

Fox News Has Rewired The Republican Brain In The Worst Way Imaginable - video

Have you noticed lately multiple mentions of human brain studies? Are you under the spell of the FOX News voices inside your head?

Related is a previous post containing a Max Igan video about Illuminati Mind Control, Spells, and Illusions along with a word about the legendary Tavistock Institute and two of its alleged clients--President Jimmy Carter, and the Republican Party.

And from 2015, calls for a CERN-like organization for the Human Brain Project (HBP) which sounds scarily distopian just putting CERN and HBP in the same sentence.

Caller: Fox News has Won! - Thom Hartmann clip

There are 40-somethings I personally know who totally depend on FOX News for their information and opinions. Yet I've heard that the median age of the FOX News audience is 69! Here's a brief call to Thom Hartmann's program on the same topic:

GOP Candidates Turn Blind Eye To Income Inequality - video

Oh dear! As you know, eclipses are considered to be 'wild cards' of the Universe, and the influence of the current Spring Equinox Solar Eclipse at a critical 29th degree continues to uncover inconvenient facts in stark relief:

You may wish to view the DC horoscope of the Spring Equinox 2015 Solar Eclipse @29Pisces with its crisis/turning point/special task YOD pattern involving broadcaster Jupiter sextile North Node (public contact) pointing toward debating, voting Mercury in veiled, not always forthcoming, Pisces, the sign that is part of the Virgo-Pisces axis of victimization and martyrdom.

And of course, Virgo, sign of the Virgin (goddess), relates on one level to issues concerning the Madonna-whore archetype. Does anyone believe that Donald Trump's complaint against FOX moderator Meghan Kelly wasn't due to his snarky remark during the recent Republican 'debate' that she was 'attacking' him (Donald the victim!) because of her monthly? Was his meaning veiled enough for you? What an antiquated male complaint against women who let their Barbie masks slip and dare to challenge misogynist male behavior!

Well, the Meghan-Donald kerfluffle has partially masked the fact that the GOP candidates on August 6th said little if anything about the real issues and problems facing the American people such as income inequality but the lack of substance was typical and predictable, wasn't it? "Does Donald Trump have a problem with women?", Thomas Roberts just asked on MSNBC. Quick! Name a Republican who doesn't.

Fox 5 San Diego News labels Obama photo as "rape suspect"

Yeah, Fox 5, that's some "accident". Are you always this inept? Or is your sophomoric lapse merely a sick joke?

You didn't show what the president is. You showed what you are.

Murdoch, Scaife and CIA Propaganda

As usual, Consortium News lifts a grimy veil to provide a detailed view of the ugly underbelly of US politics which the public seldom sees--or, in our extreme apathy--wishes to see.

Delay, WikiLeaks, Plame, and FOX 11.26.10

With Stars Over Washington still lounging about somewhere near Atlanta, GA on Thanksgiving holiday 2010 (well, there's only me, really) I've taken an hour to mosey round the Web and catch up on all the news I can smoosh into such a brief time.

Two of the four bits that stood out to me are the (long overdue) conviction of gangster Tom Delay for money laundering, and the upcoming release of a WikiLeaks cache revealing what global diplomats say about their governments and think of one another. How groovy! Sounds like a grand idea to me especially as an astrologer who likes to peek under the hood of politics at what political hoodlums and their brethren are secretly up to!

Might the new revelations from WikiLeaks cause havoc, interfere with so-called diplomacy, and undermine war? You betcha! Yet what causes more havoc than war - and perpetual, illegally waged at that?

Also the release of the Valerie Plame-Joe Wilson film starring Naomi Watts and Sean Penn may be elucidating as well for I did have a chance to watch Tavis Smiley interview them this week on his program. It's the Hollywoodesque-ing of Washington, yes, but good stuff.

Fourth is the crazy tale of how the FOX organization's fans and dupes took a satirical story in The Onion as gospel: it was a "75,000-word email" supposedly sent "to America" by Barack Obama detailing what some readers determined was evidence of the President's 'breakdown' which convinced them that he should be removed from office based on only the "email", that he should be sent to a shrink, etc. (If he keeps such an appointment, he should take all Washington warmongers and certain media moguls with him.)

The amazing degree of their rabid-fox gullibility defies description except to be breath-taking in its hilarity - a definite gotcha moment for any anti-Obamaist who apparently can't recognize The Onion's satire when they see it because the fakery plays conveniently into a typical FOX News propaganda script. Duh.

So, in honor of anyone and everyone who leaks the truth, tells it from the start, appreciates those who do, or uses satire to point it out, here is a quote brought to you compliments of the excellent Information Clearing House Newsletter where you'll find interesting articles galore on these and other newsworthy topics:

"Every man who says frankly and fully what he thinks is so far doing a public service. We should be grateful to him for attacking most unsparingly our most cherished opinions."

-Sir Leslie Stephen (1832-1904), literary essayist, author; Source: The Suppression of Poisonous Opinions, 1883

See you all on Sunday - opinions, hood-peekings, and all!

US-Israeli spy-ties, 9/11, and our Mercury/Pluto

Since the events of 9/11/01, an aroma of betrayal has wafted here and there, off and on, through alternative news venues and smelling stinkily like Israel spies on, and in, the US of A. "Not true," say Israeli spokespersons.

There have been questions about how Israel could possibly have avoided knowing ahead about the WTC attacks (they have a habit of spying on Arabs) so why not spill the life-saving beans to your bestest, gosh-golly-darn'dest, bosomest of buddies, America (Once) the Beautiful.

Now surfacing - on FOX News, of all places! - Israel spends most of its spying time and money on industrial and militarial thefts bwo surveillance in and from the US. Guess the fat checks America sends the Israeli government pays for something fun after all.

Anyway, my online time has been interfered with by thunderstorm systems of late so I'm just now glomming on to this story. Read, if you will, and tell me what you think of the matter.


btw: doh! it strikes me that nothing emphasized on FOX News is there by accident. If it's aired, you can be sure there's a political reason. And that goes just as much for major network 'newscasts'. This describes America's natal Mercury/Pluto opposition, y'know...'control of the media' and 'the press used as propaganda dissimulators' (see my previous post from this morning for more details!)

Of course, the above situation with US-Israeli spy-ties may indicate that the US did know ahead of time about the attacks of 9/11 because of spywork - whether courtesy of Israel, another source, and/or from within US government spying agencies themselves.

At least, we know that someone knew ahead of time...because someone made mega-million$ on the NYSE. Now was that Goldman Sachs? ~:~
