Biden-Trump Debates 2024

Horoscopes: Biden-Trump Debates 2024

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

As you've heard, news sources are reporting that the Biden-Trump Debates of 2024 will he held in Atlanta, Georgia at CNN headquarters on June 27, 2024 9:00 pm, televised but with no Live audience, while the second debate is set for September 10, 2024 to be hosted on-air by ABC News, streaming via the ABC News app, and on Hulu.

So despite the possibility that the debate schedule could change or be canceled all together, here are the two Debate Horoscopes with my messy notes penned on.

Lower left is Debate #1 set for June 27, 2024 Atlanta, Georgia, and upper right is Debate #2 announced for September 10, 2024; both events occur under the influence of the Total 8 North 'Great American Eclipse' of dreams and visions, plus, transit Pluto at a critical degree dips back into Capricorn in time for the second debate while transit Neptune is at critical degree during the first debate and is final dispositor of both charts:

The Public Mood: Sagittarius, Then Pisces

Marked on the charts you'll find brief notes concerning the public mood, primarily a reference to the American people. Both signs for Luna suggest moodiness and other difficult conditions which may alternate between positive and negative.

Debating Mercury in Cancer, Then Virgo

In June, Mercury the messenger planet travels through Moon-ruled Cancer where patriotism, nationalism, tribalism, rhetoric, commerce, security, and self-protection tend to express. We should note that Cancer is the sign of Trump's natal Mercury which always ties in his problematic Mercury-Neptune square.

Then in September, speedy Mercury in Virgo is all about facts, details, logic, research, practicality, criticism, and/or cooperation. Notably, President Biden's natal Mercury is in deep-thinking Scorpio, an intuitive Water sign, as is the more commerce-adjacent sign of Cancer.

Well, there are several other significant factors in both charts worth our notice but this is all the time I care to spend on the topic for now since the debate schedule could turn out to be moot. So Thanks a Bunch for reading this far, if you've managed! jc

A J6 Solar Return Horoscope for 2025

A Forewarned Is Forearmed SO'W Post

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

A topic of discussion for political pundits these days is that Donald and his never-give-up comrades are likely to be planning another J6-style coup attempt of the US government which may include violence, so I set up the J6 Solar Return Horoscope for 2025 to see what we could see.

Instead of a physical attack, cyber warfare is a likely method of taking control (ex: Election 2024), or, some virulent combination of physical and cyber may be under consideration by these win-at-any-cost ruffians and thugs. In addition, it remains uncertain if stolen documents are being held over certain heads in order to force Donald's will for power and retaliation upon our country - in other words, to force his way back to the power that nests within the White House, thus pleasing his foreign bosses, comrades, and financiers.

Potentially, a second coup attempt could occur in 2024, of course, but let's focus on the 2025 Solar Return ("SR") of the Breach! J6 Horoscope (with US 1776 Uranus rising at 2:15 pm est when the Capitol Building was breached: Uranus = shock, revolt, and/or assault) for the chart shows us the planetary energies in play on the day of the 2021 coup attempt's 4th anniversary, January 6, 2025, at the very moment the Sun returns to its J6 position in 2021. No, I'm not saying that this is the exact day that saboteurs may take further action against America, however, the 2025 Return Horoscope merely symbolizes possibilities and trends of such anti-government behavior.

Mars-Pluto: Force, Brutality, Atomic Energy; Uranus-ASC: Upsets, Excitement

The current Mars-Pluto Cycle (use of force; violent measures) began on February 14, 2024 @00AQ46. What must be mentioned is the Mars-Pluto opposition which is Angular (prominent - like a Full Moon phase in their cycle), and radical zealot Uranus Rx rising - doubly Angular for it lands upon the natal Midheaven ('MC') of Mr. Trump indicating a potential for a major job change (Uranus-ASC = n MC); this is if his fascist authoritarian dream of dystopia comes true, or if he's somehow knocked out of the running and must make other arrangements:

ASC 23Tau52 makes unaspected Venus in Pisces the chart-ruler with unusual perspectives, lack of self-control, an impressionable nature, and isolation (R. Ebertin) more or less in charge. At MC, the Goal Point, we find manipulative, wealthy Pluto in Aquarius with exaggerated plans for reform, or, popular plans for bringing folks together as a community. Obviously, this depends on who manages to nab the presidency in November 2024. Also of note: mundane Pluto can wear a variety of hats including that of The Pope, the spy, and/or the assassin.

The Solar Return Sun and Moon

Sun @16Cap41 conjuncts asteroid Hopi, known for its association with ambushes and prejudice, while the Sun applies twice: 1. square Chiron which spotlights a potential for gaining center stage by a restless character, and 2. trine Uranus which implies technological cooperation, and novel or unusual ideas and methods. Notably, the J6 Sun also opposes the natal Nemesis (16Can40) of Herr Trump which may symbolize little more than his nibs' challenge to national leadership and his determination toward retribution for his loss.

When a Solar Return Moon is in Aries, a new element can be expected within the environment, and heading in a new direction is indicated (C. Teal). However, the square from the Capricorn Sun shows conflict through insensitive or arrogant people making unrealistic demands that interrupt or interfere with our druthers. In 12th house, a SR Moon suggests a period of reflection, recuperation, or possibly confinement. The Moon-Chiron conjunction places an emphasis on patriotism, while the Moon-Jupiter sextile offers assistance and a ray of hope (A. Oken).

As for J6 SR 2025's Earth-Fire Sun Capricorn-Moon Aries blend of conscious and unconscious energies, its "Image for Integration" tells a tale all its own:

"A Roman City-State Is Attacked by Barbarians But Its Solid Walls Keep Marauding Bandits At Bay" (The Harveys). Well, it worked before, may it do so again!

Meanwhile, orating Mercury, the messenger planet in late Sagittarius is the ruthless executive leading a Locomotive shape of planets and in Jupiter-ruled Sag may denote the rhetoric of a religious figure (real or imagined). Provocation, aggressive language, and abuse are in the mix via the Mercury-Mars inconjunct, and the aggression could possibly transfer energies into physical activities, or enthuse others into taking action. Additionally, the deceptive, fantasy-prone, skewed perceptions of the Mercury-Neptune square echo the same square in the natal chart and psyche of malicious schemer, Herr Trump.

Activist Mars @The Foundation

Significantly, warrior planet Mars @30Cancer ("A Daughter of the American Revolution") is out-of-bounds ('OOBs') so who knows what he (or she!) is up to off on his/her own yet can also represent foreign actors as can ivory tower Pluto in 9th house of Foreign Lands and Legal Affairs. My suspicion is that outside agitators should be expected to enter our domestic scene (IC) in order to participate, a ploy we've already seen in current campus upheavals, and have experienced in the past (ex: DNC 1968 Chicago).

The Love of Money Is the Root of All Evil

Financial indicators (exs: embezzlement; foreign raids; more tax breaks; bribery) are bunched around the 2nd cusp of the National Treasury and Earning Ability and include Jupiter, gold-hoarding Midas, and Cupido, asteroid of Corporatism, The Syndicate, the mafia, and/or 'The Family' (also a reference to the power-craving "religious" fundamentalist group in DC that journalist/author Jeff Sharlet has written about and which was made into a Netflix documentary). Then on a more positive note, US employment numbers may continue to impress!

The Jupiter-Saturn Cycle Squared

As you know, their 20-year cycle began with the Conjunction of December 21, 2020 @00AQ+ (conjunct the current Mars-Pluto Cycle @00AQ+), and it would take an additional post for more than a mention of the Jupiter-Saturn Cycle once January 6, 2025 rolls around. For as you see, generous Jupiter in Gemini (Rx until early February 2025) and restrictive Saturn in Pisces (conjunct the Republican Party's 1854 Neptune in mid-Pisces: the grim face of reality transit) are at a square stage of blockages and obstacles. Specifically, we may expect projects to begin before previous projects end, some financial imbalance, and of course, there's the pair's typical association in government of checks and balances which could be part of this picture especially considering the afore-mentioned marauding bandits in the form of the seditious saboteurs, foreign and domestic, who continue to afflict the US government - our government.

Well, there you have my look at the J6 Solar Return Horoscope for 2025. Other planetary factors exist which may stand out more clearly to you, or which may take precedence as we approach Election 2024 and enter the New Year. A variety of transits and progressions will certainly change the cosmic picture substantially along with events as-yet unknown, so let's keep our chins up, our eyes peeled, and fervently hope that our solid walls hold as needed, shall we?

May 3, 2024 NYC: Hope Hicks Testifies

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

Today at around 11:30 am edt in the Manhattan courtroom of Judge Marchan, a former close associate of Donald Trump was called to the stand in Trump's Election Interference/Hush Money Trial. On the stand, Hope Hicks pointed toward Trump's assistant Rhona Graff as a source of information, and testified that Trump was a great multi-tasker.

My understanding has been that not one penny ever left the Trump Organization without Donald okaying it, but maybe that's just me. Is it you?

Solar Eclipses Cycle 'Round Again

Notably, the upcoming 8 South Solar Eclipse of October 2, 2024 @10Libra - the Prenatal Eclipse Series ('PE') that will influence Election 2024 and Inauguration 2025 with themes of loss and separation - happens to be the PE Series into which Hope Hicks was born on October 21, 1988 under 8 South influences, plus, issues of dedication, perception, logic, and/or health issues when in Mercury-ruled Virgo (R. Lineman).

Significantly, the lady's natal Mercury @11Libra will be directly hit by the 8 South Eclipse this October (or influential as early as mid-September) and this will activate her natal Neptune @7Cap42 as well - because Ms. Hicks was born with a Mercury-Neptune square as was Big Liar Trump. Therefore, the square suggests a tendencies to adjust data, and to deceive and fantasize as she served in the White House and has testified today about her boss. And like agent orange, she may tend to hear only what she wants to hear with this square. Later I'll want to catch up with the evening news concerning how her testimony turned out today.

Hope Hicks: Saturn-Uranus Conjunction 1988 = Powder Keg!

Now there are differences between her and Herr T's natal planets, of course, but we're talking about Mercury the messenger and her testimony today so her Mercury-Neptune square is, shall we say, under scrutiny, as is the square of fact-challenged Trump, fantasist extraordinaire.

So meanwhile, here's the 8 South Horoscope of Hope Hicks which perfected on September 11, 1988 @18Vir40. A few of my study notes are penned on the chart but I know there are more cosmic factors worth discovering for the curious:

Now I don't know what the rest of 2024 holds for Miss Hicks, but when an individual's PE repeats (about every 19 years), the themes and aspects of its subsequent manifestations may or may not repeat through life events. Because, as with all eclipses, cyclical repetitions of eclipses are replete with unpredictable Uranian 'wild card' possibilities which may include a change of direction.

The current Saturn Return of SCOTUS

Legal Eagle Planet: Karmic Saturn in the SCOTUS Chart

by Jude Cowell

Until the arrival of the next Saturn Return of the US Supreme Court ("SCOTUS") on March 2, 2025, the Court and the American people remain under the influence of SCOTUS' third of three Saturn Returns which perfected on January 19, 1996 at 6:59:15 pm est. Dates of numbers one and two returns are listed on the 1996 Saturn Return chart, as you can see, along with my messy study notes.

Some amount of information about restrictive Saturn's rulership of our court system and those who work there may be extrapolated from the cosmic clues herein until the SC's 2025 Saturn Return becomes operative about one year from now:

Possibly significant to our decade, which contains the 2024 Election (post includes Gavin Newsom) and Inauguration 2025, are events of 1995 and 1996 with conditions and/or events rhyming if not repeating precisely. Specifically, we can cite the November 5, 1996 Re-Election of President Bill Clinton. Perhaps you remember the constant harassment, legal and otherwise, that the Republican Party subjected Bill Clinton to - and thus, the American people. Then there were the 1995/96 government shutdowns, a Republican tactic now in the cards once again. The GOP has become tiresomely predictable, hasn't it? Why, taxpayers pay their salaries and insurance premiums while they work to sabotage the country - not to govern it - to undermine it!

Saturn: Planet of Authority, Accountability, Realism

A possibly related fact at that time is that America's natal Saturn of 1776, exalted in Libra, had progressed into Scorpio, a more serious and obstinate placement for The Judge and The Lawmaker, and that US Saturn turned retrograde by progression on January 4, 1997 (9:09 am est) @3Sco24:53 which to me denotes a slow shifting of America's reputation in the world as a fair and free nation where the rule of law and the US Constitution hold sway. The Clinton Impeachment over a personal relationship is an unfortunate example that made our Justice System look stupid to the entire world, and certainly not "exalted."

In other words, much harm has been done, as we discussed in a previous post, Baseless Impeachment Undermines US Authority, says Saturn, and Republicans have been trying it again, this time against President Joe Biden. Baselessly!

Meanwhile, there's an interesting Saturn transit upcoming in a few weeks involving the fantasy-prone Republican Party (1854) which sports Neptune in mid-Pisces - and transit Saturn to Neptune is the "grim face of reality" transit. This may be operative around the timing of the various Trump trials, but who knows with the way court schedules shift about, thanks to Trump's endless ways of delaying (another Saturn word) accountability (another).

So here we are in 2024, and there are too many examples of how the Saturnian shift into Scorpio has played out in the US so I'll leave it to you, dear reader, to consider these things for yourself.

Now here's an unmarked version of the same Saturn Return Horoscope of 1996 shown above, in case it might be useful to you:

Note: the above US SP Saturn Rx information issues from America's July 4, 1776 Horoscope for 5:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA. Other versions of the 1776 US chart will give similar results although timing may differ somewhat as per your choice! jc

8 South themes will affect Election 2024

'Wild Card' Eclipses, Historical and Political Events

by Jude Cowell

News has gotten around that yet another Great American Eclipse will manifest in the 8 North Saros Series on April 8, 2024 @19Ari24 conjunct wounded healer Chiron at the same position. This is the third of three such solar eclipses, total and visible across the United States beginning in Texas. Most folks remember the previous Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @28Leo52 conjunct Regulus, the 'kingmaker' star that rises in the natal horoscope of D. John Trump (if his 10:54 am est birth time is accurate). He demonstrated his Apollo rising with royal Regulus and aggressive Mars when he removed safety glasses and looked directly at the total eclipse as if he's a "sun god" (in his own mind). Yet as you know, Leo is one of the signs of royalty (pride and vanity).

Even so, no one alive remembers the very first Great American Eclipse of 1878. So here's a previous SO'W post from 2022 concerning all three eclipses, all total, all visible within the U.S.

And yet this post isn't about these eclipses, it's about the 8 South Eclipse of October 2, 2024 for it's the one that will influence Election 2024 and Inauguration 2025 with 8S themes of "loss; separation; partings; to finish something and feel sad at its completion; possible physical injury through overstrain"; take it easy (paraphrasing B. Brady's Predictive Astrology #ad). Here are DC Horoscopes of 8 South Eclipses with their aspect grids:

May 16, 1501 Eclipse @4Gem51

October 2, 2024 Eclipse @10Lib03

Shown above are both horoscopes of 8 South Eclipses set for DC: first, its initial Eclipse of May 16, 1501 @4Gem51 which provides the lens through which to consider all subsequent 8 South Eclipses via its Mercury-ruled sign of Gemini and applied to the upcoming 8 South Eclipse in Venus-ruled Libra, also an Air sign. Gemini: news, communication, oration, trade, teaching; and Libra: diplomacy, beauty, relationships, and the Scales of Justice.

Notably, 10Libra03 lands squarely inside Trump's natal 2nd hou$e and within his trio of Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter with its grand scheme, fraud, and speculation influences. And as the entire world knows, Big Donald is now within a period of being held accountable for the first time in his life.

Meanwhile, in Political Astrology, the initial and upcoming 8 South eclipses suggest that their combined Mercury-Venus influences are worth pondering within the Hegelian Dialectic model aptly used by Michael Munkasey:

Thesis: A mixture of business and society; beautification programs for highways; news about the status of wealth; social psychology, the study of people.

Antithesis: a business sector at odds with society; speeches which emhasize economic facts; propaganda about the ease and quality of life; debates on added costs; a transportation system that places beauty over function. (Paraphrasing, Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, M.M. #ad).

You recognize that some of these Mercury-Venus potentials are operative now, don't you? And last but not least, when solar eclipses occur in Air signs, logic must be placed about personal biases and emotional attitudes - and judgments must be based on facts and truth (R. Lineman). If karmic progress is the goal.

One more Eclipse Note: 8 South Eclipses have also manifested in the years 1916, 1934, 1952, 1970, 1988, 2006, (2024), and next in 2042 @21Libra, which by degree will stimulate or activate themes of the 7 South Eclipse of October 14, 2023 which is in effect as as I type this post. Follow the link for a view of 7 South's initial manifestation in 1248 and its repetition on October 14, 2024 @21Libra. Repetitions of eclipses are so that humanity has opportunities to handle events and conditions better the next time around.

The regressive GOP targets Zoomers!

GOP 2024: Zoomers, Minority Voters, Women Unwelcome in Voting Booths

by Jude Cowell, partisan for American Democracy

As you know, Generation Z, aka, Zoomers, are those born from 1997 to 2012 - "The Future Innovators." Well, obviously, innovation is the last thing the Republican Party wants since regression and backward time travel are major features of their authoritarian agenda of dystopian oppression and misogyny.

Yes, Zoomers are being targeted by Republican operatives because even the entity called the GOP realizes that younger Americans (who will live in the future) will vote in droves in November 2024 for candidates with progressive policies, aka, beneficial ones, rather than settle for the crabbiness, corruption, and greed of low-charactered GOPers, whether indicted yet or not.

For a better explanation, check out The GOP has Declared War on Their New Mortal Enemy: Zoomers, by progressive broadcaster and author, Thom Hartmann.

Image: A Close-Up of Pluto (NASA photo)

So with the multiple GOP tactics, both known and, so far, unknown, such as purging voter rolls (Pluto, planet of purges) they hope to sway Election 2024 their crabby way. Regressives demand a Past vs Future struggle as if clocks can be turned back!

And so we may wish to consider any cosmic predictors (As Above, So Below) that we can find in order to forewarn and forearm American voters of all ages. And we all must do what we can to sound the alarm against regressive Trumpianism and Fascism while taking whatever defensive actions possible in order to avoid America being turned into a dictatorship. In other words, the threat is real: Vote Blue in 2024!

Note to GOP: Time Advances Forward, Never Backward!

Now if you as an American, agree, read on. If you disagree, then you're probably in the wrong country and are reading someone else's Unsealed Letter.

Then there's the fact that transit Pluto of primal violence fame has already inched a twisted hoof temporarily into progressive Aquarius back in December 2020, and Mr. Transformation will be residing in Aquarius in time for Inauguration 2025 - but will still stomp on 29Capricorn for Election 2024, with 29 a critical/crisis degree of impatience. But with Pluto in Aquarius, we may expect more folks to express a communal sense than before. And yet we know that the depressingly long sojourn of Pluto in Capricorn, the cosmic marker for The Dictator (R. Ebertin), is fading as I type even as effects of our three-fer US Pluto Return all through 2022 will be with our nation going forward including the US Mercury-Pluto opposition of 1776 and the surveillance state its energies made possible.

One reliable cosmic marker for Election 2024 is its prior New Moon, a lunation that can affect earthly events like a Solar Eclipse and in a similar disruptive fashion as radical planet Uranus often does. Changes of direction are suggested and secrets may be revealed, so Election 2024's Predictive New Moon Prior is worth keeping an eye on.

Then on a Sun-Pluto power-wielding or abuse level, there's a previous SO'W post you may wish to revisit for its Plutonian oppression-suppression potentials, When Pluto Hits America's POTUS Sun (00AQ53), an exact conjunction that occurs three times: February 18, July 22, and December 26, 2024.

And on the topic of the US Pluto Return, see GOP, Foreign Power, and Pluto in America which includes an informative Thom Hartmann clip, plus, a tri-wheel image of all three conjunctions of transit Pluto to its natal position on July 4, 1776.

In closing, there's another potential indicator of US electional outcomes and it's planet Venus. America's presidential election cycle follows the Cycle of Venus via our 4-year vs 8-year presidential terms. For more details see Election Day 2024: What Does the Venus Cycle Say? and please be certain that all the voting-aged Zoomers in your life remain aware of the GOP strategies against their right to vote. Don't let an irrational GOP of brutal authoritarians negate America's future!

The Assassination Eclipse of JFK

--"--to ensure the survival and success of liberty--" - JFK Inaugural Address January 20, 1961 Capitol Building Washington DC

Our Karmic Loss Echoes Through the Decades

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

Today, in November 2023, the American people are engaged in a fight for democracy and the liberty that comes along with it. Our complete rejection of Fascism and Nazism is necessary in every possible way including Voting Blue in Election 2024 - otherwise all our democratic geese will be cooked and swallowed by barbarians.

Now if you've visited SO'W before, you may know that in previous posts I have referred to the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy as, The Day America Died. Obviously, the restless Uranus-Pluto Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s strongly influenced events with the planetary duo's 'old order collapses, construction of the new order' (R. Ebertin) implication as a major suspect in the crime although their conjunction was yet to become exact in mid-Virgo (3x in 1965/66).

Now below with my study notes intact is a view of the 1 North Solar Eclipse of 1963 @27Can24 in 9th house when the chart is set for Dallas, TX; when a solar eclipse manifests in Moon-ruled Cancer, emotional extremes hinder karmic progress (ex: the election of a Catholic president ruffled the feathers of many Americans). As you see, 1 North themes of 'distorted or false information, unexpected events, and/or health problems, fatigue' (Brady) are written across the top of the chart and are highlighted in orange; JFK's natal positions (b. May 29, 1917) are penned around the chart and highlighted in turquoise:

Of course, a variety of cosmic influences were in force as well, and a basic one running in the background of society is the eclipse cycle during which the Assassination of JFK occurred. As noted, that would be the 1 North Eclipse of July 20, 1963 @27Can24. Tellingly, this Total eclipse in the 1 North series ("The Mother of All Eclipses" being numero uno) opposed US 1776 Pluto (Rx @27Cap33) and this contact reveals that the tragic murder of President Kennedy was perpetrated at a critical point in America's karmic evolution.

So we know that in 1963, We the People and the US government which was created to represent our interests, were striving for higher attainment on the evolutionary or spiritual scale (his election was very uplifting for our country, as I remember!); otherwise we would revert to animalism, primal violence, and brutality (Pluto). How different our society could have been!

And so I'm saddened to say that animalism - purposefully chosen to change our national direction and to wound and hamper the American people - was the choice of the enemies of JFK and his administration because his and RFK's reforms were unacceptable to certain people of a criminal persuasion - those who will do whatever it takes to reach their objectives (exs: mobsters; certain wealthy elites). And yes, we're now mired within a cycle of animalism as I type, with violent acts regularly threatened by Herr Trump, his comrades foreign and domestic, and his gullible cult followers - bashing against the US Justice System.

Eclipses: Uranian Wild Cards of the Universe

Simultaneously, another 1963 contact, this one to JFK's natal Saturn, is quite instructive because the 1 North Eclipse @27Can24 landed directly upon his Saturn (27Can09) indicating that he was the president of the hour with the responsibility, know-how, and the discipline to carry out society's required directives. This contact also suggests that JFK was well equipped to handle the duties of office, and that he took a serious view of his karmic obligations (R. Lineman) - exactly what the office of the presidency requires.

Yet as you know, eclipses disrupt events on Earth and can lead humanity into an entirely new direction similarly to the action of the erratic planet of chaos, Uranus, with Total eclipses being especially strong.

As for assassination stopping him in his tracks, JFK's natal Saturn is the apex planet of his Sun-Moon midpoint of vitality, but on a mundane level, this trio can denote 'smears on the national reputation' (Munkasey) which is indicated with the solar eclipse (Sun-Moon) conjunct JFK's natal Saturn. Yet on a personal level, his midpoint picture thus created indicates 'addressing problems' positively, but negatively suggests 'a weakened system' (his health issues are well known, but governmental systems are also involved since karmically speaking, how goes a president, so goes the nation). A potential for Saturnian 'separation' (R. Ebertin) is also suggested and, as it turned out, was the tragic outcome for the Kennedy family and for our nation.

And so this sorriness of grief and loss is how the 1 North Eclipse of July 20, 1963 affected President Kennedy's natal Saturn (at Midheaven and fully visible to the world), his planet of sober leadership, duty, responsibility, and karma on The Day America Died. Meanwhile, manipulative Pluto, the assassin, via its 1776 position, was opposed by the 1 North while Eclipse Saturn formed an obstructive sesqui-square of complexity to President Kennedy's natal Pluto at this, his Nodal Half Return of destiny.

Previously appearing on SO'W: DC Horoscope JFK Inauguration 1961 with his natal planets surrounding and Inauguration Saturn in Capricorn aligning in opposition to JFK's natal Saturn in Cancer.

And you may wish to read about the eternal flame that Jacqueline Kennedy requested for her husband's grave in Arlington National Cemetery.

1 North Eclipses also manifested in the years 1909, 1927, 1945 (Trinity Test), {1963}, 1981 (as the Reaganomics Eclipse),1999 (as the 'Fixed Grand Cross Eclipse' found in The Book of Revelation which Nostradamus warned against due to its 'terror' implications), 2017 (as The Great American Eclipse conjunct royal star Regulus and Herr Trump's natal Ascendant).

Meanwhile, the next 1 North Eclipse occurs on September 2, 2035 @9Virgo, and the very first occurrence of a 1 North manifested on January 4, 1639 @13Cap48 which means that all subsequent 1 Norths may be more clearly viewed through a Saturnian lens which can add themes of avariciousness, selfishness, and greed to the proceedings, or, on a higher level, can indicate 'old souls' teaching others to walk the sober, responsible, and conscientious path that leads to karmic progress.

Insurrection Act w Inauguration 2025

commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:The_Discovery_of_a_London_Monster,_called_The_Blacke_Dogg_of_New-gate_(1612).jpg

Trump Monster To Use Insurrection Act If "Re-Elected"

by Jude Cowell

Those who have criticized Donald Trump or who stood in his way have good reason to be worried about Election 2024 and Inauguration 2025. Trump's comrades are said to be preparing the fascist Project 2025 so that Trump can "hit the ground running" Day One and implement the Insurrection Act so that he can use the military (and militiamen one assumes) to take revenge against the American people, against anyone who dares protest against him or his "presidency" - to arrest participants in civil disobediance. Americans making good trouble, as John Lewis would say.

Although the Heritage Foundation is denying culpability, the Koch-infused group, along with the "America First Policy Institute" of anti-democracy seditionists, are said to lurk behind the "guideline" being called Project 2025, an agenda by which they intend, using figurehead Trump backed by foreign comrades of the global criminal network, to "re-shape" the federal government into a Hungarian-style government which under despot Viktor Orban is no longer a democracy.

Meanwhile, if a US voter in 2024 wants to see how America will end up under another Trump regime, check out results in occupied France by August 1944 when American forces arrived and liberated the destroyed country from the Nazi regime, by watching the four episodes of All the Light We Cannot See on Netflix. This could be the USA under Trumpists like Jeffrey Clark, who may be another election denier about to flip on Trump in Georgia, Newsweek reports.

And as for wide-girthed Trump hitting the ground running, see "Trump's vision on executive authority is more organized and ambitious" (includes a Nicolle Wallace segment). His 'hitting the ground' sounds great, but 'running' is laughable.

Why Did President Jefferson Sign the Insurrection Act?

When President Thomas Jefferson signed the Insurrection Act of 1807, it was intended to "foil a plot by Aaron Burr" to set up a republic of his own - former VP Burr's own private Empire in Mexico. Sedition then, sedition now. But for insurrectionist Trump to use the Insurrection Act in 2025 - and the presidency to protect himself from criminal accountability - would be a topsy turvy use of the Act! Why, George Orwell would be proud/not proud.

So! See what you can make of the horoscopes, below, and the transits from 2025 to 1807. We should note that the 1807 Act became operative under the influence of a 7 North Eclipse ('blood') lust; hidden passion which repeated on April 20, 2023 @29Ari50 (conjunct the J6 Mars of 2021 and the American Revolution Sun of 1775); Election 2024 and Inauguration 2025 will occur under the auspices of a difficult 8 South Eclipse @10Lib03 with themes of loss and separation (B. Brady).

Insurrection Act 1807 (inner) and Inauguration 2025 (outer):

Now although the 1807 Act was amended in 1871, 2006, and 2007, the initial date of the enactment of the Insurrection Act creates a most interesting Historical Horoscope worth keeping in mind if grudge-holder Herr Trump grabs the opportunity to use its provisions for taking revenge against his fellow Americans - not against enemies of our nation, but against the American people who find him intolerable and unfit for purpose.

And for those who use a late Aquarius Moon to symbolize We the People, his dreamed-of revenge feels like Trump's rising Mars in Leo opposing US 1776 Moon writ large, if we allow it. The exact hour of the 1807 Act's enactment is unknown to me, so 12:00 am LMT is used to set up the Insurrection Act 1807 Horoscope, above, set for Washington DC, and March 3, 1807, the date the 1807 Act came into effect. As you see, there are contacts between the 1807 planets and the planets of the Inauguration 2025 Horoscope which surrounds the 1897 chart in bi-wheel form, plus, a list of midpoint pictures for both events is added, here, with both events sporting distinctive Sun-Pluto signatures of power and the use of it:

RFK Jr now running as an Independent

Independent? How Totally Unsurprising

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

Dual Images: 8 North Solar Eclipse April 8, 2024; natal chart of Robert F. Kennedy Jr set for a suggested birth hour of 5:32 pm:

Recently we considered the natal horoscope of 2024 candidate RFK Jr and the 8 North Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024, another Total solar eclipse that will be visible across the US as was the Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 in the 1 North Saros Series - in fact, their paths will cross in the center of the country in an X marks the spot pattern.

You remember how the 1 North in 2017 landed directly upon Herr Trump's natal Ascendant (@29Leo conjunct Regulus) with Mars rising. As things have turned out, this cosmic synchronicity is what a total eclipse in centuries past was considered to be: a bad omen.

As for the presidential bid of Robert F. Kennedy Jr, transit Pluto (wealth, stealth, power, control, manipulation, transformation) is retrograde today @27Cap53 where Mr. Underworld continues aiding and/or abetting Mr. Kennedy's natal Sun and Mercury (27-30Cap), and of course 27Cap+ is the position in Capricorn of America's 1776 Pluto so Mr. Kennedy has that connection of power that is at least partially related to the assassinations of his father and uncle as they served America. Notably, one of Pluto's many roles is the assassin.

Now I don't know about you, but it seems amazing to me that Robert Jr would dare enter US politics at the highest level - unless he has the 'highest level' of protection or is promised such, and I don't mean US Secret Service agents.

And so the current transit of Pluto marks a time of Sun-Pluto and Mercury-Pluto energies for RFK Jr, energies with potentials for power-craving, convincing oration, fraudulent representation, exhibitionism, demagoguery, and/or zealotry (R. Ebertin). Any, all, or none may apply.

Then with his natal Chiron and Venus-North-Node conjunction in Capricorn already visited by Pluto (22-25Cap), it's proving to be an extended period of Plutonian influences for him. In fact, major ego expansion may be one result, with identity change a possibility. A secret handshake with Plutocracy (Pluto-Chiron) could have occurred as well which to me suggests major campaign funding from the transnational crowd of societal meddlers.

Yet despite it all, we know that transit Pluto soon creeps out of Capricorn and lumbers into Aquarius for a years-long stay, so its powerful influences on Capricorn planets, permanent as they are, will begin to wane.

So, dear reader, if you haven't yet, you may wish to check out details concerning the 8 North of April 8, 2024 @19Ari24 (conjunct centaur Chiron, the wounded healer, says Astrology) here including the fact that the largest US city entirely within 8 North's path in April 2024 will be Dallas, Texas. Is your city or region on the list?

Transit Pluto in Election Year 2024

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy and the common good

When we discussed the transit of heavyweight if subversive planet Pluto to 00AQ00 in 2023 and into 2024, midpoint picture potentials were included due to the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction of 2020 @00AQ29 and its transformative meeting with transit Pluto. These energies will intensify all through 2024 leading up to Inauguration 2025 as transit Pluto reaches 00AQ29 and a midpoint picture perfects between the karmic trio of Jupiter-Saturn = Pluto.

The Plutonian midpoint picture becomes exact on:

1. February 4, 2024; 2. August 8, 2024; and 3. December 11, 2024, with the November 5, 2024 Election sandwiched between numbers 2 and 3. Of course, we can expect that it will be at least December 2024 before elections results are known and there are no certainties about the outcome of the 2024 Electoral College Vote, a tradition that Trump and comrades diluted along with the entire election process itself, as ordered from abroad.

Then as we know, every Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction marks a new social order beginning of approximately 20-years' duration. Actually, the entire election year in the US will be cosmically imprinted by these energies, along with the April 2024 Conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus, and the third of three Great American Eclipses, also in April (see links, below). (Please note that not all lunations and other cosmic events of 2024 can be listed in one post.)

Meanwhile, here you see a bi-wheel of the 2020 Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction (inner) and, because it occurs prior to Election 2024 in November, the chart of the second direct transit of Pluto (August 8, 2024) surrounds the 2020 Conjunction. Plus, here are previously published details if you're curious.

Of note is that the deadline for resolving election disputes is set for December 10, 2024 (one day prior to December 11th!), and the meeting of the electors is scheduled for December 16, 2024; as in 2021, congressional certification of Electors' votes is intended to be held on January 6, 2025:

Potentials of Jupiter-Saturn = Pluto: intense business activity; a total reversal to previously made plans; extreme changes (M. Munkasey); violent changes; immense effort; separation; restriction (R. Ebertin, who adds, "in certain cases Pluto = Jupiter-Saturn leads to an enforced change through imprisonment, in which case the political situation has to be considered"); major change of situation; tremendous perseverance; dramatic thrust of self; control of the situation (N. Tyl).

Additionally, the 2020 Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction landed upon US Inaugural Sun (Trump in Dec 2020) with potentials for: 'boasting a lot; increased self-pride; inconstancy; moodiness (disturbed liver function); change of residence; taking destiny in one's own (tiny) hands; major changes according to plan, or if nothing is prepared, having to make the best of things' (Munkasey; Ebertin; Tyl).

Jupiter Expansion-Saturn Restriction in Politics

Now as you know, Jupiter and Saturn are often used to signify America's two political parties although the symbolism tends to alternate, depending on which party is actng the Santa Claus role of generosity (Jupiter), and which tries to limit, restrict, and hold them back (Saturn) - or simply ends or seeks to end, benefits for regular folk. Generally, it seems to me that these are permanent assignations since the Democratic Party is more motherly and protective (as is democracy!) with a big tent for all, while the economic royalists of the Republican Party are more "fatherly" and conservative - with conditions (as in, conditional love).

The party's 'conditions' these days include a huge taboo for GOP politicians who dare "reach across the aisle." Why, that coud lead to improvements in society - the opposite of what Republicans want for the American people, so cooperation is a no-no. Right now, even the NYSE has its panties in a bunch because employment in the US is way up, thanks to President Biden, and finagling a financial crash is what the GOP needs in time to skew Election 2024 toward the fasc*st GOP.

Because it isn't as if Republicans can win elections by promoting aloud their Saturnian policies of austerity and loss. Yet some folks are catching on and my hope is that all voters will realize that voting for more of the extremist GOP's "trickle down" economics is self-destructive and harmful for our families and our nation.

Of course, by tradition the checks'n'balances of the Jupiter-Saturn duo kept the US government simmering along on a more or less even keel but the GOP is working harder than ever to keep the imbalance going, and worsening. They can't even run the House of Representatives without shutting down the government, leaving the House leaderless, and causing the US a credit downgrade (they hope). Maga-types are not politicians, they're chaos agents parroting their Uranian idol Trump.

Astrologically, this points toward rebellious anarchist Uranus lurching this way and that, ruling on a whim and a notion, with major disruption, even revolution, the goal. To Uranus add the Neptune-Pluto duo of underworld crime and we have precisely the crooks and circumstances we see before our very eyes and in our court rooms.

As for the (purposefully) leaderless House of Representatives, if Trump steps in "temporarily" as Speaker, his 10th house Uranus in chatty Gemini, duplicitous and transactional as it may be, will only cause more chaos which, after all, is Trump's way of doing business. But it's probably all talk though since Trump has endorsed loose cannon Jim Jordan for the Speaker position. Or perhaps Steve Scalise will grab the gavel! We'll have to see how things go next week as the maga/freedom caucus performers continue their clown show. And we'll see if secret-seller Trump, agent orange as I've called him for years, is brave enough to set a toe back in Washington DC without fear of being detained as the traitor he is. So if he shows up, will the District be big enough for agent orange and Jack Smith?

Other Prominent Cosmic Events of 2024 Include:

The Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024 (DC Horoscope shown).

The Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction Horoscope of April 20, 2024.

The New Millennium Horoscope and Its Progressed New Moon May 4, 2024 (both DC Horoscopes shown).

The 8 South Solar Eclipse of October 2024 influences Election 2024.

Then on November 1, 2024 comes the predictive New Moon Prior to the 2024 Election @9Sco35 with a belligerent Mars-Pluto opposition at critical 29th degrees across the security-minded Cancer-Capricorn axis.

Related is America's Mars-Pluto Cycle which began in December 1775.

Election Year 2024: Will Pluto Step From The Shadows?

Underworld planet Pluto prefers to manipulate from the shadows, aka, from behind the curtain, from abroad, and/or from his hidden lair where his hoard of gold is secreted. Even a dark alley can suffice! Meanwhile, between 2022's US Pluto Return and transit Pluto leaving Capricorn and creeping into Aquarius, a variety of conditions are shifting across the globe and everyone is feeling it, Earth changes included.

So if the venerable lens of Astrology can add a measure of understanding to the proceedings, then the purpose of writing pro-democracy posts on Stars Over Washington is satisfied. To me it seems to be the very least I can do to honor the sacrifices of my Revolutionary War ancestors - and yours, too, if you have them!

Then if you, dear reader, should find SO'W content useful or informative, please spread the word if not a post or two. Thanks a Bunch! jc

Previously on SO'W: Remember when Jupiter and Uranus were in opposition at Winter Solstice 2016 and formed a major T-Square with Pluto? That's Pluto @16Capricorn, the position of the Sun during Trump's Maga Coup Attempt, with Sun-Pluto relating to a craving for power and the need to take control.

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.

DC Horoscope: Inauguration 2029

Sun-Pluto: Power, Control, Paternalism, Wealth

by Jude Cowell

In this, the 18th year of writing Stars Over Washington and dissenting against what corrupt politicians have "done with the place" in many instances (exs: preemptive wars; torture; lying the American people into war; CEOs supporting insurrection; finagled financial crashes and recessions; our two-tier legal system; class warfare; Citizens' United; domestic and foreign bribery of politicians; a corrupt, unreliable SCOTUS, etc), this particular Daughter of the American Revolution realizes that Inauguration 2025 might be America's final presidential Oath-taking - assuming that Election 2024 manages to go reasonably well despite the massive amount of sabotage being utilized against our nation.

Therefore, all these things may make the following publish of DC Horoscope: Inauguration 2029 pointless unless the Federal Government can get every one of its ducks in a row and bolster all three of its branches - each one created with an oversight duty to monitor the others.

So for the sake of comparison, below are two unmarked Horoscopes: Inauguration 2029 and Inauguration 2025. From the position of radical rebel Uranus, America's 'totem planet' of war, we find that the US will experience a Uranus Return between the years 2025 and 2029. Actually, due to retrogradation, it's a triple Return (to 8Gem55), exact from July 2027 to the third Return in May 2028. Of course, other planetary changes, shifts, and contacts occur as well during the time frame but are beyond the scope of this limited post.

Inauguration 2029: January 20th 12:00 pm est Capitol Building:

Inauguration 2025: January 20th 12:00 pm est Capitol Building:

For details see When Pluto Hits America's POTUS Sun.

Now obviously, as transit Pluto in recent years has crept through Capricorn, met US 1776 Pluto, and recently lumbered into Aquarius, the Inaugural 10th house Sun-Pluto situation of power and control shown in both charts takes precedence at a primal level since Sun = leader/leadership of the country, and transit Pluto, planet of Underworld elements, is now in process of overtaking or melding with US Inaugural Sun.

So perhaps an addition of Sun-Pluto potentials in Politics and/or Business can be instructive, so here is Michael Munkasey's Hegelian Dialectic form describing the power-drenched planetary duo affecting the Presidency of the United States more strongly than ever before with transit Pluto reaching Inaugural 10th house.

Please note that any, all, or none may apply - not to worry but to inform:

Thesis: Changes of policy or direction from leadership; new leadership and the changing of policy and direction; the governing authority used to control threatened dissent or subversion despite its cause or sources.

Antithesis: Accumulation of an excessive amount of armed strength; the use of secret police to exert authority and control over others; the influence of criminal organizations; extremes of corruption that wastes resources.

Now it may seem that a sense of inevitability is indicated by the Pluto-to-POTUS-Sun transit, and I suppose on a karmic level, it is. Yet there are ways of doing things that don't have to be fascist or dystopian, despite all the TV shows and movies with such themes that we've been plied with through decades. Yet instead, why can't our national Uranus Return period reactivate us as a unified people motivated by the intense desire for freedom and independence from paternalistic tyrants so that We the People demand a strengthening of our democratic Republic, as President Biden now envisions, and let fascist saboteurs relocate themselves to wherever their barbarism is appreciated.

If such a place exists upon the Earth.

May 5, 2023: The Fed's Moon Is Eclipsed!

Lunar Eclipse of May 5, 2023 Hits The Fed's 1913 Moon

by Jude Cowell

On May 5, 2023 a Lunar Eclipse perfects @14Sco58 which conjuncts the Moon in the 1913 Federal Reserve Act Horoscope shown here, upper right; lower left is the May 5th Scorpio Lunar Eclipse Horoscope; both charts are set for Washington DC. As you know, the Taurus-Scorpio 2/8 polarity is the Big Business axis of greed, corporations, finance, and investment, and you'll notice that the powerful Sun-Pluto opposition (upper right corner) of December 23, 1913 tops the 6:02 pm est horoscope at the Goal Point - and the Sun @1Capricorn 'acts as an agent for or against structural collapse':

Now as you see, a variety of astro-notes are penned upon both charts so please enlarge and/or print the image if you wish to read them. And of course, setting up the horoscopes for yourself may be a viable option, if possible, and do check out the various Sabian Symbols (they're online).

Additionally, we should mention that the May 5th Lunar Eclipse falls upon America's Inaugural Ascendant-Descendant axis of January 20th at noon, the Oath of Office, so the White House and/or presidency are likely to be somehow reflected, or disrupted, in May by the upcoming Scorpio Lunar Eclipse. Plus, President Biden was born with Mars, Mercury, Sun, and Venus in Scorpio, if it matters.

DC Horoscopes: December 23, 1913 and May 5, 2023

Moon @15Scorpio, the Eagle Point of Regeneration, conjuncts fixed star Zuben Elgenubi with its keyphrase, positive social reform. However, in Astrology when this star conjuncts Luna, the cosmic picture can darken to levels of disappointment, anxiety, and wrongful accusations which seem these days to be the required fuel for Washington DC politics to run on, at least as a tactic for far-right saboteurs.

But then again, yours truly is one of those skeptics who thinks that Fedhead Jerome Powell is raising interest rates (as if) to control inflation when it's primarily corporate greed driving the financial jalopy so that the Biden adminstration can take the blame for the US economy possibly running into a ditch - at least as planned within the fevered brains of far-right Republicans who have peculiar domestic and foreign masters to please. After all, politicians' wildly inflated incomes depend upon their compliance by which they hope to avoid being primaried in 2024 and thus losing their posh seats.

So will the rays of the May 5th Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse lift a veil or two on previous or present financial secrets? Will leaked information cause a financial and/or political scandal or yet another controversy spawned by wild conspiracy theories? Or, is the Lunar Eclipse a cosmic signal that the American people (Moon 1913) are being bamboozled once again by a tone deaf Federal Reserve of 2023 prescribing an erroneous solution that only makes things worse and causes massive job lay-offs? We'll both have to stay tuned to find out. My vote goes to Zuben Elgenubi's positivity!

Additional notes re Jerome Powell: born February 4, 1953 in Washington DC, no known birth time but a noon chart shows Sun @15Aquarius, Moon @17Libra, Jupiter @12Taurus, and Saturn strong at Direct Station @27Libra and exalted. Of particular interest is Mr. Powell's Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE") @28Leo conjunct royal Regulus which manifested on August 20, 1952 in the difficult 8 South Saros Series ('loss; separation': B. Brady) because an 8 South eclipse repeats on October 2, 2024 @10Libra.

Therefore, 8 South is the PE of both Election 2024 and Inauguration 2025. My suspicion, unfortunate as it is, is that all this cosmic solar-lunar synchronicity in May and October 2023 could be a page or two from the far-right script meant to undermine democracy, disrupt our social fabric, and demolish the Democratic Party on behalf of a dystopian government take-over such as was seen via the failed January 6, 2021 'maga' coup - a rehearsal, if you will.

Yet perhaps we can agree that one of the comforts of using an astrological lens to study such events, conditions, individuals, and disruptions is that forewarned is forearmed!

Gavin Newsom and Election Day 2024

Re: Gavin Christopher Newsom October 10, 1967 5:13 am pdt San Francisco, California

by Jude Cowell

Anyone who has viewed the AA-rated natal horoscope of California Governor Gavin Newsom might have marveled at his Uranus-Pluto Conjunction in Virgo rising just underneath his natal Ascendant (21Vir14). Bascially, Uranus in Virgo suggests an urge to reform, and a good intellect, yet tactless frankness can be a negative. (Maturity and experience have mitigated such an off-putting tendency although gaffes remain possible.) Then his Pluto in Virgo hints at scientific interests, the inquisitive mind of a collector, and reveals one who achieves much with simple means (R. Ebertin).

Of course, the transformative Uranus-Pluto Conjunction peaked during the mid-1960s prior to the Governor's birth in 1967. Yet it's still influential upon him, no doubt, with its reformist energies, elevation of consciousness tendencies, inventiveness, and technical and mechanical skills which resonate well with his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') in reliable Taurus in the 5 North Saros Series with themes of 'visions, hunches, and prophetic dreams' (B. Brady).

The last time a 5 North Eclipse manifested was on June 10, 2021 @20Gemini so 5 North themes will be re-activated and increased by a conjunction from Election 2024 Jupiter which denotes that ethics and moral values are involved, plus, issues relating back to Summer 2021 may resurface (not that they've entirely gone away). For context, you may wish to check out events of June 2021, a very busy and significant month across the globe.

Now just for the sake of comparison, here's a bi-wheel of charts with Gavin Newsom's natal horoscope (inner) and the Election Day 2024 Horoscope (outer) that I tend to use, set for Election 2024 Moon's entry into governmental Capricorn, the sign of Gavin Newsom's ambitious Moon as it happens, and suggesting that voters will be in a serious, no-nonsense mood on Election Day 2024 although some folks might entertain unusual perspectives (Venus out-of-bounds) or, will 'sit this one out':

Highlighted in green is beneficial Jupiter precisely conjunct his natal Midheaven ('MC'), the visible point of Career and Public Status, and in Gemini, signifying many contacts and communications with the public (MC). However, transit Jupiter simultaneously opposes Newsom's natal Mars (conjunct his IC), a transit that can disrupt the vibes of Jupiterian good fortune at MC. Perhaps his domestic scene will go less well than professional matters in 2024 which may or may not involve national politics. However, some hint of overblown or extravagant projects being 'too large to handle' could be involved, even collapse, at this time. Positive support from others could naturally help with any negative possibilities, yet we know that 'this too shall pass' as planetary transits and conditions always do.

Meanwhile, 2024 Venus @22Sag40 (sign of the outsider) crosses into his 4th house (home renovation?) where she finds natal Mars (20Sag53) which suggests meeting someone new, but may also indicate joint ventures with allies and/or partners. This transit will be favorable for political and/or financial activities along with the planet of good fortune, Jupiter, at Midheaven, aided by the fact that Governor Newsom's natal Jupiter @28Leo28 conjuncts royal Regulus (a promise of fame, recognition, and high position) and leads a Locomotive shape of his natal planets (followed by pleasant Venus) so that great determination toward success is indicated. These potentials should be the case for anyone wanting a successful career in politics, and theatrical talent is always a plus.

Then through our astrological lens, we see that Governor Gavin Newsom is an Air-Earth Sun Libra-Moon Capricorn personality combination of conscious-unconscious energies. Internal blockages via his Sun-Moon square suggest a need to focus on objectives, along with potentials for pragmatism, diplomacy, and the skillful management of people (what better for a politician?) In fact, this particular blend is "the just politician"! Newsom is formidable yet likeable, shrewd, fair, and a believer in law and order. Ambitious and determined to achieve, Governor Newsom prefers leading a team yet he also likes his solitude. Possessing high standards, he tends toward perfectionism, and may show a streak of snobbery upon occasion.

Now here's a quote from a political activist who also was born with the same Sun Libra-Moon Capricorn blend, Bobby Seale:

"We must start coming forth with our energies...our intellects, and our abilities to see what is right and what must be done, so the suffering will stop, and the phrase 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' begins to make some human sense."

Now admittedly as an East Coaster, I personally know little of Gavin Newsom who began serving as governor of California in January 2019 just as his Wikipedia page informs us. And many folks know that until 2006, he and Kimberly Gilfoyle were married for five years before she became - whatever it is she's become. Note that Ms. Gilfoyle's natal horoscope (March 9, 1969 10:29 pm pst San Francisco, CA) is also rated AA for accuracy and reveals a steamy, even scalding Water-Fire Sun Pisces-Moon Sagittarius personality blend which can tend toward misplaced enthusiasms yet can show compassion and a very creative imagination. Then does it make any sense that Kimberly Gilfoyle shares her natal personality blend with none other than social meddler extraordinaire Rupert Murdoch?

The Pentagon, an Eclipse, and Capricorn

Karmic Saturn: Planet of Authority and Accountability

by Jude Cowell

While combing through SO'W this morning looking for a different topic than what I found, a post displaying the Pentagon's 1942 horoscope surrounded by the 12 North Solar Eclipse Horoscope of January 15, 2010, turned out to be interesting, even useful to today's news events. Not just because this week's public discourse includes the query: were Pentagon officials involved in or complicit with Trump's January 6, 2021 coup attempt against the US government?

See USA Today's Pentagon 'wiped' phones of top Defense officials despite request for Jan 6 texts and emails. Sounds like more seditionists are trying to hide their tracks. It's a thing.

But the post is interesting also because the 12 North Eclipse of 2010 occurred @25Cap01 within the sensitized degree zone of governmental Capricorn which has seen karmic planets Saturn and Pluto working it over pretty good by transit of late. And as you know, the two planets even met on January 12, 2020 @22Cap46 to begin a new 33-year cycle of their harsh, compressive energies. Plus, the later degrees of the Cancer-Capricorn axis can have a tendency to treat people as objects (if such influences are unmitigated by other factors), and this is besides the sign's obvious implications in the realms of government, law, and business - some positive, some negative.

Then there's the handy switcheroo manipulated under the FDR administration when US Inaugurations were shifted from the first week in March, to the 20th of January (or other, when the 20th falls on Sunday), effective as of 1937, the change which placed Saturn-ruled Capricorn at Midheaven, the Goal Point of our inaugural charts and presidencies. Of course, included is US 1776 Pluto, and this signals the authoritarian democracy vs fascism dictatorship issues coming to a head in 2022 with America's first-ever Pluto Return, exact three times this very year beginning in February.

Meanwhile, our opportunity to vote in the 2022 Midterms comes in November when we'll attempt to choose what kind of government we want despite thugs and ruffians of a Trumpian persuasion, and the massive, nationwide cheating and rigging campaign that the GOP must perpetrate in order to shove through their anti-societal candidates.

Now commentators have identified the year 2009 as the beginning of anti-government racist organizations such as militia groups and the 'tea party', activated by the 2009 Inauguration of Barack Obama whose natal Saturn in Capricorn wasn't despotic enough for them, nor was he Caucasian enough.

So in closing, the Neptune-Pluto global criminal network, termed by some, The Octopus, appears in the Pentagon 1942 post linked, above, so do check it out if you dare!

Trump determined to 'Occupy the Capitol" on 1/6

Of Saboteurs in the Halls and Chambers of Congress

by Jude Cowell

December 11, 2021

Perhaps by now you've heard or read that the Team Tr*mp Plot on January 6th was actually to occupy the Capitol Building long enough for Tr*mp allies in six states to decertify and overturn the 2020 Election on behalf of the orange wanna-be dictator. Follow the link to read Seth Abramson's informative piece on this treasonous topic.

Obviously, things turned out differently than in the Mercury-Neptune-square fantasy world of Herr Tr*mp but as many folks have asserted, the insurrection of January 6, 2021 was only a trial run or practice session for the coup-to-come.

Now as readers of Stars Over Washington know, the 1/6 attack on the US Congress, its planning stages, and events leading up to it occurred under the difficult influence of the karmic 4 South Solar Eclipse of December 14, 2020, a Total lunation that 'eclipsed' political proceedings on the very day the Electoral College met and cast their votes. Thus, strong emotions were triggered with the results issuing from the 'for Biden-against Tr*mp' outcome continuing to cause destabilizing, threatening, even violent events to ripple through US society to this day.

And for the first time ever, our country's traditional 'peaceful transfer of power' was not allowed to occur with destructive egotist Tr*mp involved - for him, malicious scheming took precedence assuring that it wouldn't be a "transfer" of power, he'd said, but a continuation. Well, no. Because of course, the traditional certification of Electoral College votes in and by the US Congress was set for January 6, 2021 and this process was what Don*ld wanted stopped or at least delayed until the six states could manipulate their 2020 election results in the loser's favor. The CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) has published a blog about the 2020 election numbers if you'd care to check it out.

Meanwhile, a post with details concerning the Astrology of the coup attempt on January 6th is linked underneath the following bi-wheel which shows the January 6, 2021 Horoscope of the 'Mob Attack' set for 2:15 pm est Capitol Building surrounding America's 'Powell' Horoscope of July 1, 1776 - and as you see, there are zealous, demagoguing, double Mercury-Pluto influences activating the US Mercury-Pluto opposition with its inherent desire to corrupt existing circumstances even while thought patterns tend to disintegrate:

Chart Details: January 6th Planets link to US 1776 Chart and reveal that transiting asteroid Nemesis @25Scorpio conjuncts the natal Midheaven ('MC', the Goal Point) of Herr Tr*mp where venemously enraged star Algol happens to incessantly lurk. And to me, this cosmic synchronicity describes the orange blighter as a foe of all humanity.

Overthrowing US more successful for Rutherford Hayes

by Jude Cowell

September 29, 2021: Below is Thom Hartmann in a segment from his broadcast posted to YouTube yesterday (9.28.21) in which he discusses the Federalist Society's John Eastman memo (link to text, below) which laid out the Federalist-backed plan for crazed Tru*mp to seize the presidency and remain in power ad nauseum come January 20, 2021.

Thom notes similarities between the 2020 Election and the controversial election of Republican Rutherford B. Hayes who was aided in seizing the power of the presidency by 'win at any cost' enablers. If curious, you'll find a link below to a previous posting of the Hayes Inauguration Horoscope in which a cosmic time link turns up between then and now!

Because as you'll see, the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of the Hayes Inauguration fell into the 4 South Saros Series and a 4 South eclipse repeated on December 14, 2020 - the very day of the Electoral College Vote Count which, as it turned out on January 6 (7), 2021, was won by Joe Biden, a life-threatening outcome of disaster for you-know-who.

See Total 4 South Solar Eclipse December 14, 2020.

And that particular 2020 Electoral College Vote Count, as you know, led to the very vote counting and certification event in Congress that Tr*mp's 1/6 mob attack ("Stop the Steal") was intended to delay for a few hours so that, as Kraken Powell asserts, Justice Samuel Alito could allegedly intervene and, in time, insert his anti-American judgment to make Tr*mp president for life with the help of VP Pence, of course. But Mike Pence balked, as you know, when advised that his ceremonial VP-ship didn't possess the power for such power-grabbing tomfoolery.

And, similar to 1877, we should mention that the December 14, 2020 4 South Eclipse is the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') of Inauguration 2021 and would have been its PE, no matter who was inaugurated. The 4 South eclipse themes of 'strong emotions over money and relationships' with 'a desire to suddenly end relationships' (B. Brady) would have influenced events in one way or another. For example, it was Tr*mp's relationship with the White House that ended - and ours with him. But he's rather like the rubbish boyfriend who just keeps calling, isn't he? No, the mobster hasn't give up and his neo-n*zi comrades, foreign enablers, and the anti-American corporatists who fund the global authoritarian movement are regrouping their forces for their next planned onslaught against America. For as you know, the years 2022, 2023, and 2024 are naturally the key time frames for their next power-seizing attempts prior to Inauguration 2025 (horoscope shown - assuming there is an inauguration).

So while we have time, let's check out Memo Proves Trump Planned (to) Overthrow America in which Thom asks, Why doesn't everyone know about the Eastman memo?

Well, thanks to CNN we can read the memo here.
