Trump Whistleblower Complaint and a Leo New Moon

July 31, 2019--August 12, 2019: Trump and Our National Security

Well, according to Fortune Magazine, here is today's update Trump Whistleblower Complaint: Everything You Need to Know by Natasha Bach, and while I can't personally vouch for the accuracy of the update I do know that when Trump allegedly called Vladimir Putin on July 31, 2019, a
New Moon perfected @8Leo37
less than 2 degrees from Trump's 12th house Pluto (10Leo02; Rx and unaspected) which suggests that seeds (ideas) were planted and a new cycle of activity began. Was this mobster calling mobster? Underworld boss Pluto called and answered, if so.

Now as you know, astrological Luna may be used as a handy timing device in horoscopes and the July 31 New Moon culminated with the Full Moon of August 15, 2019 @22AQ24, book ending a time period when the current turmoil over a suppressed whistle blower complaint against Trump making a disturbing, possibly national security endangering, 'promise' to a foreign leader during a phone call, may have begun (July 31) and the whistleblower complaint filed or aired (on August 12--within the August 15th time frame). Of interest may be the rounded-up degree's symbol for the Full Moon: "A Big Bear Sitting Down and Waving all Its Paws," with 'big bear' a traditional symbol for Mother Russia. The symbol's negative/shadow side expression: "frantic efforts to gain and hold attention" (Jones).

Also note that on July 31st, communicating message-bringer Mercury @23Cancer stationed and turned Direct precisely upon Trump's natal 11th house Saturn (seeking or giving advice; serious communications)! Hello Moscow? Is that you, Moscow? It's me, Donald.

Now as it turns out, Ukraine is said to be involved which to me includes Putin, so some people are calling this Trump's Ukrainegate. Do you suppose the Trump-Putin pact to finagle Russia back into the G-8 is any part of this 'promising' picture? For as you know, Putin's actions against Ukraine got him kicked out of the G-8.

Trump's Mercury and a YOD Points to Mars and Crisis

As for America's national security, I confess to being one of those Americans who have considered the loose-lipped Donald Trump to be a major national security risk from the start with a huge clue pre-2016 being his natal Mercury-Neptune square of deception, lies, fraud, indiscretion, fantasy, inability to hear or to learn, and misperception. Naturally there were other clues but the square is a major 'tell' especially since the former reality show host uses his mouth almost non-stop for boasting, propagandizing, demagoguing, promoting, broadcasting, tweeting, insulting, and whining for what feels like 24/7. Aptly, Alan Oken calls the Mercury-Neptune square "the sneaky mind" and on that perhaps you and I can agree.

So was Trump addressing a crisis in a phone call on July 31, 2019? Perhaps so since a crisis pattern--a YOD (also, a special task; a crossroads)--is present in the July 31st New Moon horoscope (linked, above) and points toward fire-starter planet Mars (males; the military; warriors; energy, action, motivation). And if we use the YOD's planets to determine midpoint pictures we get the following potentials (my italics):

Neptune-Pluto = Mars @19Leo09: compulsion to use violence; imminent destruction emphasizes hostility; lack of resistance; used as a tool; and Saturn-Neptune = Mars: defending shabby practices; emotional depression or sickness; listlessness. (Munkasey; Ebertin). Noel Tyl adds: preoccupations that can't be explained.

No, I don't imagine that Trump's true preoccupations can be honestly explained but we know that he and his minions expend a huge amount of energy and time hiding, obstructing, and suppressing them from congressional and public scrutiny. It's the tyrant's way!

Political Astrology of G8 Summit 2013 in Belfast Ireland

G8 Summit 2013 Has a "Broad Agenda"

by Jude Cowell

The US Embassy website provides much information concerning President Obama's journey to Belfast, Northern Ireland for the G8 Summit of 2013.

The usual propaganda is detailed about what the purposes of the 2013 G8 agenda and includes discussions of: the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (another trade pact that will decimate jobs in the US, lower wages, and fatten the bank accounts of the ruling class), illegal and legal tax evasion by corporations who secretly hide profits from the IRS (does the NSA's surveillance programs such as PRISM track them?), and a "wide range of security issues" like the peace process in Northern Ireland (!), Iran's nuclear weapons development program, the 'security mission' in Afghanistan, and the civil conflict in Syria.

(My translation: How's that forceful implementation of Global Government goin'? And, What 'peace process'??)

As President Obama leaves Washington DC late tonight to fly to Belfast, the Moon will have entered Libra, sign of war and diplomacy, at 9:19 pm edt which means that Luna conjoins US natal Midheaven @00Lib+ in our 'Sibly' chart of July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT. This gives us a starting point for a brief consideration of the cosmic weather during G8 2013. Sun is in Gemini, sign of flight and meetings, for the duration until the Summer Solstice on June 21, 2013 at 1:04 am edt--click to view its horoscope with details, set for Washington DC.)

Sun Gem-Moon Lib is a double Air combo, good for travel, meetings, discussions, surveillance issues, and the speeches President Obama will deliver while abroad.

This blend denotes wandering spirits (the president does love to get out of Washington town), tact and cleverness, and breezy charm. Relationships are very important and idealism may be noted.

A desire for new vistas and a smoothing over of differences are prime motivators since it's typical of this blend to neglect facing harsh realities (such as the NSA's blown cover thanks to Edward Snowden, journalists Barton Gellman, and Glenn Greenwald--with more revelations to come of a stunning nature.)

Perhaps quotes from three people who were born with the Sun Gem-Moon Lib combo may be of interest to our topic, the first relating to emperors who--oops!--are wearing no clothes though they assume they are...

"I wasn't really naked, I simply didn't have any clothes on." Josephine Baker

"Read my lips, no new taxes." Former President George H. W. Bush

"Henceforth the adequacy of any military establishment will be judged by its ability to keep the peace." Henry Kissinger.

Really? Puh!

Now here are the Images for Integration (of Sun/consciousness, Moon/unconsciousness) for Sun Gem-Moon Lib as given by Charles & Suzi Harvey in their book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign--the first of which is obviously inspired by Henry Kissinger's days of diplomatic service (war criminal though he may be):

A shuttle diplomat brings together warring factions...An elegant hostess puts on a party and exhibition to help a worthy cause...Elgar's Enigma Variations--'to my friends depicted within.'

(Note: at the G8 in Belfast, the hostess/host is the UK's 'elegant' PM David Cameron. But somehow I doubt their 'worthy cause' will bolster the prospects of ordinary folk overmuch. Plus, the American side of the global surveillance system has had its frilly underpants pulled down a tad so Mr. Obama may be called on the carpet, imho, with secret underpinnings of the 'new world order' now displayed to the spied-upon rabble!)

Now during G8 Summit 2013, the Moon enters Scorpio on Wednesday June 19 thus shifting the cosmic weather to Sun Gem-Moon Sco, an ethereal Air-Water combo of energies. This shift occurs while the president is in Germany with Angela Merkel.

Plus, the Sun (leader) conjoins banker/politician/guru Jupiter on June 19 @28Gem31 (at 12:11 pm edt, and 4:50 pm BST) and as you know, '28Gemini' is the degree of BANKRUPTCY in Sabian Symbols. During major summits and other meetings, planetary conjunctions are always a great spot to look for clues about what's up. Is Jupiter the president's favorite guru or mentor? His 1st house natal Chiron in Pisces says he has them. Is Merkel the Jupiterian banker? I suspect so.)

Tellingly, messenger Mercury, planet of air travel, speeches, plans, and negotiations, is conjoined now by asteroid Apollo, which I regularly linked to President Obama during Campaign 2008--a 'hero's journey' kind of solar archetype which I thought was appropriate since many voters seemed to worship him as a 'god', or at least, a 'rock star' (modern society's 'gods' as in, 'rock god'.)

Thing is, Mercury is now in Cancer and within range of Pollux, a star with astrological themes that include potentials for: danger of disgrace, cruelty, rape, murder, danger from women (German Chancellor Angel Merkel again? Mercury and Lady Venus are conjunct), poisons, or large animals, the occult, Astrology (Horary Plain & Simple, A. Louis.)

So the Sun Gem-Moon Sco blend denotes communication skills yet with a tendency toward secrecy, provocation and paradox, magnetic intensity and a gift for selling. Dedicated to convictions, this combo describes investigators, stoics, and tempers with scathing tongues. Mmm-hmm.

The blend's Images for Integration may be curiously appropriate:

Father Brown solves a murder...A kaleidoscope reveals ever-changing images of people and passions...A string quartet plays with lightness and dark intensity...A long-distance runner.

Well, there is a brief astro-portrait of G8 Summit 2013. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of such topics, for if you have a mind to, I would muchly appreciate it.

G-8 Summit in France: Pisces into Aries 5.26.11

Having checked out several sites concerning the current G-8 Summit being held in Deauville, France, I'm settling on Oxfam International for news about and out of this gathering of top leaders. Most of the other sites contain a lot of bosh and what have turned out to be broken promises with the usual patootie-covering spin attached.

As Oxfam says, They've got a lot of explaining to do.

Not a lot of Astrology time is available to me today but let's take a quick peek at the Sun-Moon blends for May 26 and May 27 (Friday) to snag a hint of the general flavor of this time during which the G-8 nations have chosen to meet. (Actually meetings began earlier in May 2011 concerning drug trafficking, for one.)

May 26, 2011: Sun in early Gemini (communications; sharing ideas; lots of schmoozing) and Moon in Pisces (one half of the victim/savior axis, confused or confusing, hidden) shows a chameleon, versatile quality and a dreamy 'blowing with the wind' tendency. Worry about what's already been said may be prevalent with this Air-Water blend yet the public may never know about it given the group's closed-to-the-press directive.

This is an adventurous and very self-aware combination of double Mutable (changeable, unstable) energies which is impressionable, sensitive, and open to new ideas. Group coordination is highlighted and though concentration may be weak, someone may actually stand up to defend the underdogs among us! But lack of boundaries is a problem (open to new ideas) so approaching topics on a superficial level may be the easiest way to deal with the day's issues.

Interestingly, the Sun Gem-Moon Pisces is shared natally by Blackwater's (Xe's? or whatever name his mercenary band uses now) Erik Prince so I wonder if he is in attendance. It is also found in the natal horoscope of Allen Ginsberg and novelist Arnold Bennett who famously informed us that,

"Journalists say a thing that they know isn't true, in the hope that if they keep on saying it long enough it will be true."

Now that's a perfect quote to describe mainstream media "reporting" on such secretive, chaos-dealing groups of world 'leaders' and puppets, don't you think?

Luna Changes Her Tune

Now early on Friday morning (around 1:38 am local time, France), the Moon reaches Aries Point (a World Point of Manifestation; Recognition; Fame) which changes the vibes to an Air-Fire Sun Gem-Moon Aries blend which remains in effect into Saturday. Yes, Mars-ruled Aries (god of war) changes the tone of the proceedings quite a bit into a stronger Mutable-Cardinal (planning; taking initiative action.)

Sun Gem-Moon Ari has a clearer vibe than Friday's Piscean dreaminess but with Sun in communicative Gemini, the discussions can become argumentative, and persuasion in the theme. This a forceful, decisive, impatient blend of a race car driver! An essentially self-centered and intense willpower rules the crowd and Thursday's sensitivity to the needs of others melts away on behalf of wit, satire, and pointed words.

In fact, the 24-hour news cycle was invented by this type of personality which describes the formidable lawyer, politician, broadcaster, writer, and debater. Thoughts are put out for review but never true feelings; empathy is often missing within a pugnacious, rough-shod approach, and convictions are delivered with much enthusiasm as conversations are monopolized with a persuasive power and a strong measure of egotism.

No fools of lesser minds are suffered with Sun in intellectual Gemini and Moon in pioneering Aries!

This blend is shared natally by King Albert II of Belgium, and, oddly enough by journalist and broadcaster, the mild-seeming Bill Moyers. It is also found in the natal chart of actor Robert Morley who instructively proposed,

"Show me a man who enjoyed his schooldays and I will show you a bully and a bore."

I suspect there may be more than one bully on the scene so outcomes may come down to who can out-bully the other and sway the rest.

Now I don't know if you're expecting magical improvements for our global ills to issue forth from this year's G-8 Summit but it seems to me that these are some of the very same syndicate criminals who engineered the financial and social chaos to begin with. Yet even the power elite and their puppets sometimes experience the unexpectedness of unintended consequences which must then be dealt with for they are not the masters of karma they believe themselves to be.

No earthly mortals exist outside the reap what you sow natural law of our universe - aka, karma - so when it comes to politics and social engineering, my tendency is to wait for the pudding to set. For if the G-8 Summit ends and policies change and are implemented in the real world, the proof of any culpability they may deserve will be shown by what happens because of their top-down policies which harm and hinder rather than help populations.

A Higher Power Exists

And of course, we have not one but two Solar Eclipses coming up and eclipses are the 'wild cards' of the universe; they can affect conditions either positively or negatively. Both eclipses trigger planets in the US natal horoscope of 1776.

The first manifests near US natal Uranus 8Gem55, planet of freedom, independence, revolt, and sudden events on June 1, 2011 @ 11Gem02, and the second is a karmic Solar Eclipse on July 1, 2011 which falls between our US natal Jupiter (finances) and Sun (leadership) in self-protective Cancer, and is opposed by karmic Pluto in Capricorn.

So try to keep your feathers dry for it's going to be quite a long summer.

Next Venus Occultation: June 5, 2012

Did you know that SpaceWeather News has a 15-pp gallery of photos of 2004's Venus Occultation (aka Transit)?

Astrologically we say that a Venus Occultation indicates a time when people or entities that you'd never suspect join forces or create a new and unusal association. And perhaps we could say, a secret one.

This may have been an outcome of the G-8 Summit during the last Venus Transit of June, 2004 when world leaders (or those who play them on TV) met on the beaches of Sea Island, GA, with Sun/Venus at '18Gemini'..."Two Chinese Men Speaking Chinese in a Western Crowd."

Kind of a 'rare event above, rare below' occurrence, but high-level secret meeting attendees seldom tell tales under threat of who-knows-what fate, Venus Occultation notwithstanding.

And as you know, Venus is implicated in the dust-up which many of us worrywarts are half expecting for the end of the Mayan Calendar year in December 2012. Perhaps it's a coincidence that a Venus Occultation occurs in the year 2012, or more properly, perhaps it's a synchronicity. At the least, it may indicate an active Venus of some kind which no one can describe the effects of until it happens.

So if you want to set up a horoscope for the Venus Occultation of 2012, the Sun/Venus conjunction will be precise in Washington DC on June 5, 2012 at 9:08:53 pm edt, according to my Solar Fire software. You'll find a Rx Venus conj Sun at 15Gem45...'16Gem': "A Woman Agitator Makes an Impassioned Plea to a Crowd." (SolarFire.)

Ascendant 25Sag06; Mc 16Lib19; Moon 7Cap46 approaching Pluto 8Cap50 Rx in 1st house.

Now it may become seemly to post additional details on 2012's Venus Occultation chart as 2009 trundles along, but for now, there are other events, charts, and details to blog about: it looks like next up is America's two-hundred-thirty-third birthday in early July, then the difficult 11 South Solar Eclipse which occurs on the evening of July 21, 2009 in Washington, DC (10:34:32 pm edt.)

With America's Solar Return, I'll be deciding which to use: the Sibly/5:10 pm chart, or Ben Franklin's 2:21 pm horoscope on which to base the US Solar Return, and plenty of time will be needed to study both.

Full Moon '18Sag' June 7, 2009: Washington, DC

Having glanced at the horoscope for June 7, 2009's Full Moon 17Sag07, set for Washington, DC (2:11:39 pm edt), the Venus Occultation (a rare celestial event) of June 8, 2004 pops out as the Sun spotlights it as well as the major world event that occurred during the Occultation on Sea Island, Ga...'twas the G-8 Summit of 2004.

2004's Venus Occultation (or 'Transit') fell at 17Gem53 Rx; '18Gem': "Two Chinese Men Speaking Chinese in a Western Crowd" (and they're asking: where's our money?)

Marc Edmund Jones' negative expression for '18Gem': "a thorough dissipation of selfhood through alien relationships"...just what our government has done to America, and it's interesting that Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner is in China with our lien-holders now...which may also relate to June 7's Full Moon and US/China relations since oppositions always infer relationship issues or stand-offs.

2004 is also the year that the plutocrat pair of oppression and -isms paralleled one another - Pluto parallel Chiron, mid-August, 2004. The -isms include, as you know: statism, corporatism, fascism, totalitarianism, communism, racism; plus, the favorite of the very select few, primal violence. This conflagration of high-handedness uses population control to further their utopian world view, as well as what Naomi Klein calls Shock Doctrine tactics to destabilize, then take over property, land rights, and resources located thereupon, etc.

So what could the Sag Full Moon of June 7, 2009 be a culmination of in the daily (mundane) world, the fluctuating Moon's purview?

Something was put in motion at the last New Moon 3Gem28, which was a New Moon in Pres. Obama's Lunar Return chart, as previously noted. This reflects a new cycle beginning in the president's daily life (Moon) and/or with public relations (Moon = the people.)

Without taking hours to blurb about this Full Moon chart I do want to note that the opposition of the Sun 17Gem07 and Moon 17Sag07 form a Mutable T-Square to apex Saturn 15Vir10 who's busily working (Saturn in Virgo) in the behind-the-scenes 12th house (a place where most politicians love to hide for secret deal-making and rank-pulling tactics.)

Mr. Reality is now moving forward (Direct) to perfect his stomp upon America's natal ideals and dreams (Neptune 22Vir25, in n 9th house of Higher Education, Philosophy, Religion, Foreign Travels, and In-Laws) in August which also happens to be the position of Pres. Obama's natal Mars. Mars, Saturn, and Neptune make a difficult combination of energies but since I've mentioned it more than once before, I'll keep mum on it here.

In his very useful book, Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, Bil Tierney states that such an apex Saturn is an 'overly rational skeptic, one who mistrusts the power of imagination and the emotions.'

He sounds 'cool' doesn't he?

Less scattering of nervous energies is required to fully express this apex Saturn so that they may be applied directly and practically. Communications may be frustrated, yet through hard work, apex Saturn in Mutable T-SQ has become an intellectual achiever and an expert at 'carefully constructing mature thought systems that can make an enduring impression upon social consciousness.'

Challenges involve authoritative positions which emphasize the 'dispersal or distribution of purposeful data and specialized information' and knowledge which has been patiently gathered and synthesized. This apex Saturn may indicate a scientist, researcher, technological whiz, or a scholar accustomed to managing painstaking details.

Here is 'keen ambition to undertake serious duties and social obligations without resorting to power plays' or an overbearing domination of others. His 'consistent efforts toward the building of true law, order, and justice within his existing society are highly respected by others' and 'personal authority and leadership' show 'strength of character, integrity, and fairness to all those who judge him.'

After hearing Pres. Obama's announcement this morning concerning the GM bankruptcy filed today (Chptr 11), and knowing that Mr. Obama's planet of authority, Saturn, is strong in its own sign of Capricorn (law, politics, business), I'm thinking that on one level, the light of June 7's Full Moon will shine on Pres. Obama's leadership, fairness (a concept he mentioned in his remarks today, yet with more lost jobs on the horizon, that's quite a shaky tightrope to walk), and on his versatile powers of intellect which make him a master of ideas who can get things done on a practical level.

Plus, BHO taught constitutional law for ten years and his Cappy Saturn must have loved that no end!

Congress reconvenes Sep 4, 2007

After their summer break and in spite of all the People can do, Congress reconvenes Tuesday, September 4, as I've been warned. And thus the infestation continues.

There are 'poisons' in the air, quarrels in the wings, and a thousand other things-- and of course, Tuesday's chart represents the entire week, while we Sheeple admire or deride the performances which our congressional actors and other governmental thespians shall deliver.

Oh! and al-Qaeda and others are watching, too.

Yes, my peepers were put on and a stealthier-than-usual peek was taken at the transit charts for Tuesday over the Capitol Building--for sunrise and for 9:00 am EDT. It is stealthier because of the methods employed bwo composite (blended or averaged) charts done with Tuesday + the R's and the D's natal charts respectively.

Transits for 9.4.07 sunrise 6:43:40 am Capitol Bldg:

Sun/ASC 11Vir32 conj Fixed Star Zosma, keywords: victim or a savior, conj Bush Sr natal ASC... "11Vir": "A white stud racing at full speed, his bit white with foam" (Adriano Carelli, The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac.)

note: click chart to enlarge for more details--but now my computer is crashing, E-link is off service, and I'm shutting down until later--as you know America's 'two-party system' is really just one big happy party entering a large canoe--elites vs the miserable masses. Actually, make that a's more modern.

Now we're all feeling a sense of foreboding esp with the Sep 11 Solar Eclipse in Virgo, but this entry must be completed later...and today IS a holiday of sorts here in America, after all!

Back now after a household catasprophe--can't stay long, but first here are a few notes on Tuesday's transits to the natal chart of the Republican Party:

Mercury 28Vir28 conj n Mars: information received motivates or inspires action; giving or receiving instructions; a pressing need or urge to travel; sales and business may involve: sports, vehicles, communications or computers, military matters esp equipment, education, or haircuts. Yep--haircuts.

Jupiter 11Sag09 (conj the Pluto/Chiron conj degree of Dec 30, 1999) has lately Stationed Direct upon the R-Party's ASC 9Sag47. This also conjuncts the warring Fixed Star, Antares, keywords: obsessed with success. Jupiter to ASC is a time when grand jestures are made in order to impress, and people may have or get the idea that there's higher status or importance than is the case.

Greed or self-indulgence leads to negative outcomes now--just ask the not-gay bathroom guy. (Please tip your attendant.)

Then there's the long-time-coming tr Uranus to n Neptune 15Pis53. This has been in effect ever since Uranus got to the mid-degrees of Pisces---longer than I'd care to remember. And Ura/Neptune, as you know, is the New World Order pair of 1992-93 when their Great Conjunction took place: "18Cap"...smug or string-armed paternalism.

Uranus to n Neptune upsets the status quo with an increased need to fulfill ideals and spiritual aspirations--yet individuals have little if any personal control. Freedom of expression disappears, and others make decisions which the Collective will regret.

A Uranus-Neptune period was between 1934 to 1949 when demented ideals were touted in Germany as personal freedom and equality were mocked and trampled upon with tragic results. A style of this fascism is being seen again since their hook-up in 1992-93...we're in the thick of it now, m'peops, and it's being spread by elitist globalist types who think chaos is just dandy and "worth it" along with their syndicate minions to do much of their dirty work.

They do what they like as long as they have their *sidedoor to slip out of...their loophole or secret trapdoor, their state-of-the-art escape hatch.

And yet the Davison Composite (C/Dav) chart blending Tuesday's transits + the Dem Party itself shows an obsessive-compulsive quindecile aspect between Uranus and Neptune.

Uranus QD Neptune: idealism influences rebellion; disruption of idealism and/or unity; deceit disrupts the status quo (there's that status quo again); there can be heightened idealism and compassion, and unification through innovative ideas and insights.

Two more QDs are in evidence.

Mercury QD Pluto: manipulation and cunning by using communication and information; domination of discussions; perceptions are transformed through communication of powerful ideas.

Saturn QD Pluto: old systems self-destruct; societal leaders use force, manipulation, and ocntrol which transforms rigid structures; alternately, authority may be influenced by mass consciousness.

Are there any QDS in the C/Dav chart of the Republicans? you ask.

Mars QD Saturn: aggressively and ruthlessly driven toward goals, ambitions, and achievements; physical limits are pushed to prove oneself---wookaholism; clashes with authority.

Mars QD MC: sreps on others to get ahead in career; driven by the need to reach the top; passionate and confident.

Neptune QD MC: illusion and deception used within career; has idealized perceptions about who one is in the world; intuitive and insightful; can play a role in spiritual arenas (The Quindecile, Ricki Reeves.)

As you see in the charts, the D-Party has more going on in the top hemisphere--more on display for the public, one supposes. They also have more midpoints in the C/Dav chart than the Rs do. Look for provocative behavior, plus some surprises and innovations put forth this week in Washington.

America could sure use improved behavior on Capitol Hill and in the White House. Thankfully, Bush is off the continent so once again I ask: can't the locks be changed?

And one more thing about Tuesday--around 4:00 pm edt, Moon catches up to Mars at the Venus Transit degree of June 2004 (the Sea Island, GA G-8 Summit...

"18Gemini": "Two Chinese men speaking Chinese in a western crowd."

A Venus Transit is when unexpected and unusual alliances are forged--those pesky Vulcans!

*Today Bush slipped out a White House "sidedoor" (more like a secret tunnel, si?) to fly to Baghdad for seven whole hours "on the ground." Actually I don't know if they were 'whole' or not. Then he jetted off to the Summit in Sydney, AU (and to my Aussie friends--you're welcome to 'im! But I forget--you have a varmint of your own, don't you?)

His Royal Puniness at the G-8

Since I heard of George Bush's puniness in Germany this morning I've spent some time looking at charts of today's G-8 Summit (sunrise, noon--Bush took ill after he was already dressed suggesting a breakfast of suspicious tea and crumpets, or...?)--and I was led to the chart of Benjamin Disraeli (don't ask how...long story; born Dec 21, 1804; 5:30 am LMT, London) who so knowledgeably said:

"The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments' plans." -Disraeli, speech in Aylesbury, Sep 10, 1876

Ah yes--today's unaspected Pluto, agent, saboteur and provocateur, would agree as he skulks about on his own these days!

So what of today's Sun-Moon personality blend?

Sun Gem/Moon Pisces:

A sentimental and versatile chameleon, this blend can be moody and vacillating, talkative, dreamy, and can blow with the wind. Its greatest weaknesses include emotional superficiality, a lack of boundaries, and a tendency to withdraw in self-pity when feeling misunderstood.

That bossy Bush boy! He went to the Summit to lay down the law as he sees it--but did he withdraw and spend the morning abed in a snit of self-pity--or was it (with Moon in overindulgent Pisces) simply a case of suffering from a raging hang-over?

Today's charts also describe some attempt at manipulation (esp concerning a female--Merkel?) in Bush's case bwo his puniness causing him to miss the morning's meetings where things may not be totally under his control, yet with today's unaspected Pluto--and Pluto's assassinating and spying tendencies--one still must wonder what really befell the bully.

And today's Image for Integration for Sun Gem-Moon Pisces is quite lovely:

A weathervane on a church spire sparkles in the sunshine as the wind twirls it around, turning it into a mysterious sky gem. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzy Harvey.)

Ahh! Puts me in mind of wind power and global warming issues--subjects Angela Merkel has on her front burner at the 2007 Summit!

Heads-Up: If you'd like to read Mr.A.Cat's latest limericks on the G-8 Summit and on Bush's new "war czar" head over to Lim's Limericks where kittens play Lutes on Capitol Hill and other kitties rudely make their critiques known. Rrraowrr-r-r-r-r!!!

Putin's stare

Putin's days of "catering to America, the winner of the 'Cold War' are over," says Daniel Schorr this evening on NPR.

And The Scotsman has Putin: A living riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma with more on the dead-eyed varmint than anyone cares to know.

Taking over the presidency of Russia in 2000, Putin was actually made prime minister and heir-apparent of Boris Yeltsin on Dec 31, 1999...a few hours after the Great Pluto/Chiron Conjunction of Dec 30, 1999.

Now it's true that Nostradamus didn't know there was a Pluto or a Chiron, but the pair's conj has helped issue in the New Millenium along with his predicted King of Alarm Solar Eclipse of Aug 11, 1999, aka "The Mother of All Eclipses."

Pluto/Chiron = plutocracy, oppression, racism, class warfare, the disenfranchised--issues of deep wounding--and is associated with mass currents of consciousness according to Richard Nolle's book on Chiron.

Their conjunction, the beginning of the cycle, is found in the natal charts of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez, to name a few. This indicates that their Quests for self-expression are the manifestations of mass need, and they may or may not be consciously aware of this.

The accuracy of Vladimir Putin's natal chart is in question but we know that slow-moving Pluto is at 22Leo43 (conj MC in the Rodden version) with Chiron 7Cap05 conj 3rd cusp (3rd house = siblings--his two brothers died young.)

And as you know, 7Cap36 is the position of Fixed Star Facies, keywords: ruthlessness or the victim. Facies is associated with blindness (the archer's stare--they say Putin has a really nasty stare, you'll want to stay away from it) and as one of the most difficult Stars in the sky, relates to evil, war, violent death, and/or penetration of action that has no regard for others.

The positive side of Facies (what little there may be) is having an extremely focused ambition.

A few people with Facies linked to planets in their natal charts:

Margaret Thatcher, Adolf Hitler, and John Lennon who was "cut down by the archer's stare" (Brady's Book of Fixed Stars) so it's virtually nostalgic to remember the heady days of the lovey-dovey Bush-Putin mutual eye-gazing, isn't it? Why, I get weepy just thinkin' about it and now G-8 time has rolled around once again, and...oh there I go...where's my box of Puffs?

lookin' for luv: Bush leaves for Europe

He can't get enough luv in America these days but who's minding the regime while Bush is in Europe for the pontificating, hydra-headed G-8-We're-Great Summit?

The AP has what the Bushies want you to know about it as Bush Heads to Europe for G-8 Summit while modestly admitting that he's pining for some adulation, a semblance of which may be found in the impoverished democracy of Georgia...on a thoroughfare they now call George W. Bush Avenue of all things.

Highway to H*ll would be more descriptive. Wonder what it's called by the good people of Georgia? World Leaders Su*k Street?

But of course the Summit supposedly centers around the Bush and the Putin being in a (staged) "spat" about the US's nebulous missile defense system which Putin says will turn Europe in to a "powder keg" and it's simply forcing Russia to muscle up militarily for "a new arms race"! Bush is "forcing" him to power up--seemingly against his (iron) will, poor thing!!

They craftily keep reminding each other that the "Cold War" is over--but they act more like, long live the "Cold War." Oh, the complexities of leadership, we're to think philosophically (insert yawn.)

And let us not forget the Vatican's wishes--and that the pope's ring does need a reach-around shining by George while he's in the neighborhood (as previously posted):

Pope calls for New World Order.

Seems more likely to little me that Bush, Putin, and friends are in cahoots in the militarization of space for world domination...but it's their acting techniques that really need beefing up. Such drama queens!

Venus, Castor, and Pollux tonight

Thanks to the Newsletter we find that Venus is lining up with the Twins of Gemini, Castor and she did on June 2, 1999. You'll find Tunc Tezel's photo of 1999's alignment as seen from Ankara, Turkey here for Venus' cycle is 8 it's time.

With the WTC being so obviously symbolic of the Twins (Twin Towers), the previous date of Venus' line-up with the dark'n'light *Twins of Gemini isn't particularly comforting to this reluctant astrologer, although it should be a lovely enough sight this evening once the sky goes dark (look West--which may be what some other folk are doing.)

Venus's position in the tropical zodiac for this hook-up is 27Can19 and I'm posting a chunk of the chart for 9:00 pm edt along with George Bush's natal chart on the outside since Venus is conjuncting his Saturn 26Can30.

The transit of Venus to Saturn indicates a desire for solitude or, if in company, it must be that which serves some practical purpose (he doesn't have to worry--I won't be knockin'!) It may also indicate "grace brought to ambition" (Dr. Noel Tyl's Synthesis and Counseling in Astrology.)

Also tonight Mercury will conj US n Jupiter, so we may expect lots of international communications ("chatter"? hope not) and information will be pinging all about...perhaps more than is usual over a weekend...some 'new' news may surface esp within Jupiter's realms of philosophy, money, and expansion issues.

You also see here the ongoing triggering of Bush's n Venus/Pluto midpoint by tr Saturn which I have mentioned before...

Venus/Pluto = Saturn: immorality; a sense of tragedy; the fear of losing love (Ebertin; Tyl.)

This image shows a gaggle of Bush's natal planets (plus his n ASC) in the 8th house of transformation; debt; death; sex; other people's money; the occult, and more...a busy place, the 8th house, one of the Psychological houses. The crazy, greedy, secretive perver_...oops! did I just type that out loud? My bad.

Okay, here are some Symbols for tonight's Venus degree "28Can" using both The Sabian Symbols in Astrology and the formal yet interesting The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac by Adriano Carelli (used copies may be available, pub'd 1982 by the AFA), to get a fuller picture of Venus' doings:

"28Can": "A modern Pocohantas"...COMPATIBILITY.

With Jamestown still in the news and its 400th anniversary just passed in May, this is an interesting degree for lady Venus which speaks of, "...cooperation between various phases of human culture, such as those which have become crystallized in a faithfulness to the special values they have held intact and those which provide the new potentials of a genuine frontier spirit.

pos: high skill in bringing older or neglected reality to the service of fresher and more vital self-fulfillment;

neg/shadow or unconscious side: an inability to make personal adjustments and a stupid exaltation of conservatism."

Now we know that a"city on a hill" makes a well-lighted target as one did in 2001, for conservatism exists within al-Qaeda and its hydra-headed offspring, doesn't it? And since Venus' visit to Castor and Pollux of 1999 was prior to 9/11, I must say, "conservatism"? please--not again.

And the politizing and partisanship-above-all-win-at-any-cost attitude continue in Washington. You were expecting stewardship maybe? It's Pluto/Chiron's class warfare and oppression...'elite' rulers vs the sheeple, and we're losing in part because of our habit of identifying with the 'upper classes' which so many of us dream of joining one day (puh!)

Can a decent person with a conscience be that grasping and cold-hearted?

See the G-8 Protest article link just below, if you haven't...there are some people in the world who are not fooled by US or EU propaganda on these issues.

Back to Venus: Carelli's "28Can" degree has no word picture, but quoting in part for our purposes:

(The native) can display a remarkable political skill and a more remarkable administrative ability...the native is sure to get money galore as soon as he is of age...unfortunately, the gift for earning money might be warped into greed, and his foresight into stinginess...(there may be) loafing, political tact (giving) way to scheming, servilism, or even worse.

Also on tap tonight:

Setting at 9 pm is "18Gem", which is the Venus Transit degree of June 2004--which occurred at the G-8 Summit on Sea Island, GA..."18Gem": "Two Chinese men talking Chinese in a western crowd" (MEJ.)

A rare Venus Transit indicates new, unsuspected, and unusual alliances being entered into. (Remember the ridiculous open-shirted photo-op the big cheeses indulged themselves with upon the beach in 2004? Guffaw! Wonder who snapped that one with a straight face?) Bush and Putin were still in their fabled "eye gazing" phase of partnership, if I'm not mistaken.

Crowd, Police Clash at Protest of G-8 because it's G-8 Summit time again which links the 2007 Summit with the Summit of 2004 bwo Venus in particular.

This year, protest organizers are handing out leaflets saying:

The world shaped by the dominance of the G-8 is a world of hunger, social divisions, environmental destruction, and barriers against migrants and refugees."

And who can disagree? Imho, their global policies of war profiteering, pillaging of natural resources, and their cynical manipulations of governments are helping to create refugees, hunger, environmental degradations, and death.

Venus is, after all, a vengeful lady when scorned and was the trigger on 9/11 of the King of Alarm Solar Eclipse degree of Aug 11, 1999 when strife was let loose upon the earth. "19Leo" is also al-Qaeda's natal Sun's degree, btw, and Carelli's "19Leo" gives in part:

"...a senseless and stubborn arrogance sets him against those worthier, mightier, and better than himself...(he has a) grudge against mankind and unjustified rebellion against public opinion."

(There's more to this degree, but I shall save such joy for another post.)

Further Note on "28Can": the opposite or Illumination Point degree "28Cap" = "A large aviary." An interesting degree considering the recent drug-resistant strain of TB that's now been jetted around the globe...and his father-in-law just happened to be a TB expert at the CDC? Get OUT!

Question: have you read Congress' 2006 Solar Return? It's still in effect until November and contains Dane Rudhyar's version of the Sabian Symbol for "18Libra" which is the important US Mars' secondary station degree when our Mars function turned Rx for the first time in US history (July 2006.)

Mars = military, police, young men, pioneers, inside (Rx) instigators and could describe a leader of the feminine persuasion since Mars Rx natally was shared by many of the women suffragettes of the past.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi came into more power under this influence, but there could be more ladies to come with the 2008 election--and US Mars will be Rx by progression for 80 years hence.

Well, this post turned out to be more of a hodge-podge than initially intended and I still want to post on the Beatles concert of 1965 asap and the Great Uranus/Pluto conjunction of those rebellious times...perhaps later or on Sunday for my knarly typing finger is now officialy wumped out!

*Fixed Stars Castor and Pollux relate to creativity--one in the dark or hidden way and one in the light, and Castor esp relates to creative writing and communications.
