Biden SOTU 2024: Bound to Succeed!

A SOTU 2024 Astro-Review

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

Last night's SOTU Address to a joint session of Congress was delivered in fiery fashion by President Joe Biden who, some pundits say, will get him re-elected. Unlike his past SOTUs, President Biden didn't ask the malcontent Republicans to join him in legislative tasks to boost the country, instead he forcefully called them out on just about every issue they truculently oppose. With satisfaction I can type that Republicans' frilly gnatzie underpants were showing!

SOTU 2024 in Balsamic Lunar Phase: Prophetic

Citing a positive vision for our nation's future, Joe Biden symbolically reached ahead toward the promises of the visionary Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024 of prophetic dreams, and claimed them to include in his bracing, forward-looking speech. Combative, yes, (his natal Saturn-Uranus conjunction came in handy!) and we can see these facets in midpoint pictures with the North Node of public contact in pioneering Aries at apex; penned on the chart, look for NN = Saturn-Uranus midpoint: combative energy, but also NN = Sun-Jupiter: new plans that feel "bound to succeed" (N. Tyl):

Above: SOTU 2024 9:27 pm est (lower left, Hour of Sun) and SOTU 2024 10:34 pm est (upper right, Hour of Mars); timings used from my phone's time stamp, yours may differ slightly.

Other astro-notes are listed on the charts for the curious including President Biden's natal Mars @12Scorpio rising as he ended his SOTU address--and with transit Jupiter in obstinate, often greedy Taurus opposing his Mars, a challenging opposition that will soon pass from Jupiter's Sabian Symbol word picture: "A Man Handling Baggage."

Well, I'd have to say that last night, Mr. Biden "handled" the dead-weight Republicans very well, those who refuse to govern and only pretend allegiance to America. Yet the quarrels won't end for it's Campaign 2024, after all.

And one, perhaps the major, issue the President has to improve upon is his outward support of Netanyahu's brutality against the Palestinian people and thousands of Michigan voters' recent protest against Biden's public stance--notwithstanding his workings behind the scenes toward a ceasefire in Gaza. See upper right corner for the Nemesis (divine foe) conjunction with Niobe (grieving mothers), both lingering in retrograde, for the Israeli-Palestinian paradox, the inability to forgive leading to endless acts of revenge, has caused strife and suffering in the world for as long as anyone can remember.

A Change of Perspective for Election 2024!

So now it's been confirmed that the Venus Election Cycle may be on the Democrats' side after all. Why? Because with election Venus in Sagittarius, sign of the outsider or stranger, the Venusian forecast is for a rival of the incumbent to be victorious this November, and there have been only a couple of exceptions through the years. But now that it's obvious that it's to be a Biden-Trump match-up and Herr Trump is running as "an incumbent," his Democratic rival is just as likely to win the presidency! Even more likely, if we-the-voters do our parts by turning out in massive numbers to Vote Blue for democracy on November 5, 2024. It's not hyperbole to say that our childrens' futures are on the line - and with women voters, a Biden victory can be assured and, along with House and Senate victories for Democrats, Roe v Wade will be restored along with womens' rights.

So in closing, here's a clear-eyed, plain-spoken, don't-miss podcast episode concerning last night's SOTU 2024 from the excellent David Feldman helpfully giving us The Mop-Up.

More astro-notes can be found in my previous post on Biden's SOTU Address 2024, written before the 9:00 pm start time was announced, and with Spica rising at 9:00 pm--still a symbolic chart for SOTU 2024, but it took several minutes for his glad-handing through the chamber (his old stomping ground) to lead President Biden to the podium where he began to speak at 9:27 pm!

Netanyahu: Natal and Progressed 2024

by Jude Cowell

For current and future reference, here are the natal chart of Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu (lower left), along with his Secondary Progressed ('SP') Full Moon @13Can23 perfecting on October 25, 2024. We should add that "Bibi"s natal data is rated 'C' so there may be some discrepancy in his natal and SP charts causing the timing to be somewhat off:

5 North and The Nodal Axis of Destiny and Direction

Mr. Netanyahu was born into the 5 North Saros Series via his PE of April 28, 1949 @7Taurus42, a stubborn sign of rigidity even when cooperation is needed for karmic progress. A 5 North Eclipse last manifested on June 10, 2021 @20Gemini in the midst of Trump's 10th house trio of Uranus-NN-Sun; 5N themes include 'prophetic dreams, useful hunches, visions' (paraphrasing B. Brady).

Meanwhile, some folks have observed that Netanyahu is "like Trump" which may have something to do with the fact that, among other connections, both men have their Mars @26Leo+, and Netanyahu's Libra planets and South Node land within Trump's 2nd house trio of Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter. There are religious implications therein along with grand schemes aided by Mercury-Neptune fantasies and spins of the truth. Lies promoted for political reasons are suggested.

Now Netanyahu was born with a Neptune-South-Node conjunction (with his Libra Moon nearby) while Trump was born with a Moon-South-Node conjunction. Both these Nodal conjunctions indicate lack of popularity with the masses and fluctuating success. And with shady Neptune, intrigue and unfortunate circumstances are attached. With the Moon, emotional alienation or estrangement are denoted, and with both Nodal conjunctions, a tendency toward bad timing is indicated.

New Associations, Fresh Intrigue, More Theft

Curiously, Netanyahu will experience a Nodal Return (@16Ari41) on February 20, 2024 and this will cast a cosmic spotlight upon his Neptune-SN conjunction (SN = the "tail of the dragon") - conjunct transit Chiron @16Ari47 conjunct his Aries North Node - just as transit Neptune @26Pis23 precisely conjuncts Netanyahu's natal IC (also @26Pis23) of Endings, The Drain, and Domestic Scene. Somehow, an undermining influence is in store for him, perhaps with a 'spies enter the country' flavor. Yet we must add that the Neptune-to-IC transit is exact (26:23) as long as the birth time of his natal chart is accurate. Perhaps this transit will confirm it!

Horoscope: Jordan May 25, 1946

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy and World Peace

With the humanitarian tragedy in the Middle East worsening since the October 7, 2023 Hamas attack on Israel, Palestinian refugees have few options for reaching safety for their families. However, Jordan is acccepting Palestinians into their country so perhaps the May 25, 1946 horoscope of Jordan may be informative for those who wish to see the planetary influences operative during this dangerous time.

Adding to the complexities in the region, three American deaths by drone have occurred in the country and tension is high, yet President Biden now says he's decided how to respond to the attack in Jordan.

So below you see Jordan's noon horoscope, number 174 in Nicholas Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes (#ad). You'll notice that a few of Jordan's positions are close to the natal positions of D. Trump since he was born in New York USA approximately three weeks later; a few astro-notes are penned on the chart which may or may not be useful:

Hamas' Founding Eclipse repeats Oct 14, 2023

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy and peace

The terrorist organization known as Hamas (the Islamic Resistance Movement) was founded in December 1987 under the influence of a 7 South Solar Eclipse. For background information see PBS Newshour's: Hamas: Its Origins, Leaders, and Funding. Hamas has poked the tiger, as you know, by attacking Israel so that barbaric animalism and sadism blights the people and land. As we've previously discussed, the 7 South Series of solar eclipses is a Mars-Square-Pluto affair of power, anger, and revenge.

You may wish to check out the 2023 Israel-Hamas war page on Wikipedia for more information, but note that as a current event, details may change quickly including the title of the entry to "2023 Gaza war."

Now obviously, the 7 South Eclipse occurring in 3 days falls within the 2-week window in which eclipse themes may influence events prior to the day of the eclipse. And that's saying a lot since the 7 North Eclipse of April 20, 2023 @29Aries was labeled here on SO'W as "Herr Adolf's birthday eclipse" and contained elements of (blood) lust and deeply hidden passion bursting forth (B. Brady). Obviously, authoritarian take-over energies are suggested.

Then as you know, 29Aries is the position of warrior planet Mars during Trump's maga mob coup attempt on January 6, 2021 ('J6'). Yes, conditions and events link together, they're all related and lead one to another. After all--

Historical events are cyclical as are eclipses.

So here's the 7 South Horoscope set for Gaza Strip under which Hamas was founded; penned around the outside and highlighted in blue are the planetary positions for the attack and invasion of October 7, 2023, early morning hours; I shall use 4:53:34 am EEDT symbolically because aggressive 1987 Mars @19Vir57 rises over Gaza at that moment:

Pluto: Planet of Primal Violence, Death, and Control

As you see, many of my (scribbly) study notes are penned on the chart, plus, consulting the Sabian Symbols would be well worth the effort if you're curious. Significantly, 2023 Pluto Rx @27Cap53 (America's 1776 Pluto position) inconjuncts 1987 Chiron (old grievances), while squaring 1987 Jupiter Rx (expansion squelched by a higher power).

Meanwhile, President Biden has called the Hamas attack "bloodthirsty" in keeping with the still-in-force 7 North Eclipse theme of "blood" lust (themes combine with 7 South themes, both eclipses are influential at the moment). Years ago on SO'W, I embedded a video clip of Senator Joe Biden asserting that he is a "Zionist" but at some point later on the clip was deleted. I suppose he still is for he stands with Israel today.

Now in closing, I am compelled to add that as a Protestant Christian, I've always been admonished to Pray for the Peace of Israel - perhaps you have been, too. Now that war and primal violence have come to the Holy Land, may God help us all.

In 2015, 6 Nations Plotted to "Elect" Trump in 2016

A Huge Thank You to one of my FB friends for the shout-out on this: In 2015, 6 Nations hatched a Plot to elect Trump. The nations are: Saudi Arabia, Russia, Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt. Follow the links under this post to view any previous posts concerning these enemies of America. And note that, unsurprisingly, son-in-law Jared Kushner was an 'embed' for Israel.

Below is a newer version, re-read and freshly marked, of the RNC 2016 Full Moon Horoscope with the Full Moon @27Cap40 conjunct US 1776 Pluto, the spy; please note that marked factors may differ from earlier versions and for the curious reader, you may agree that the Capricorn Full Moon Horoscope is a stunner. Plus, my original post from 2015 concerning the traitorous situation may be read here: Horoscope: RNC 2016 Full Moon.

A Few Related Posts include: Trump Campaign's Russian Encounters at RNC 2016 spotlighting the embedded Paul Manafort, and Jeff Sessions who was later fired from his Attorney General position because he wasn't "protecting" Trump enough like Roy Cohn used to do. All this is what "electing" a mobbed-up crook did for America.

The Death Eclipse of Robert Maxwell (1923--1991)

A brief bio of wheeler-dealer media magnate and Mossad superspy (and MI-6 agent or asset and ??) Robert Maxwell (nee Jan Ludvik Hyman Binyamin Hoch; June 10, 1923 Prag, Czech Republic MET 'noon') notes his enigmatic death by drowning off the Canary Islands, Spain, on November 5, 1991--somehow 'falling off' his yacht, suiciding himself, or being pushed. Conflicting autopsies indicated possible heart attack--he had both heart and lung conditions and had not been feeling well--or drowning possibly after slipping and falling due to a sudden heart attack or other event.

Reportedly there were no signs of assault on his body yet heart attacks can be helped along by nefarious stow-aways so we see the enigmatic quality of the fatal event. However, a second autopsy revealed "froth' in his lungs consistent with drowning--and it seems that he was about to face massive, reputation-shattering bankruptcy, a very good reason to commit suicide, get yourself murdered by disgruntled associates, or to elaborately fake your own death. Yes, the word inconclusive comes to mind which is one reason Maxwell's cause of death continues to seem suspicious.

Note that Robert Maxwell's natal horoscope is available set for noon (RR: X = date w/out time) if you're curious about his Gemini Sun and Moon in either Aries or Taurus. Of interest is the rounded-up Sabian Symbol for his natal Jupiter Rx @10Sco07 (11 Scorpio): "A Drowning Man Rescued." Then was his death a ruse? Jupiter is only one factor, yet there are ways, such as his wife and elder son identifying a look-alike as husband and father but that's quite unlikely, plus, he may already have been 'rescued' once too often during his life. Yes, astrological Jupiter is protective but is often active and near a chart Angle during times of death, whether fair or foul.

What we do know is that his body was located "at the end of the day" (November 5, 1991) so we have that to set a horoscope by if we wish (sunset at 6:11:16 pm UT Canary Islands provides a definite time to work from if you wish to have a look). Also his gone-overboard event from whatever cause seems to have occurred between approximately 4:30 am and 6:30 am UT according to testimonies by the yacht's crew members interviewed in the 53-minute video Robert Maxwell - The Downfall (in English with Dutch subtitles). Now at least one researcher has mentioned Maxwell as the Mossad agent who stole Promis software for Israel, then a 'trap door' was installed for spying purposes and sold to multiple governments around the globe--and to Osama bin Laden, but without personal knowledge I prefer to file that under So They Say. This post is only for entertainment purposes, after all.

July 11, 1991: a 'Wild Card' Suddenly Appears

And so amidst all the dates and hours known and unknown concerning the life and death of Ghislaine's father, Robert Maxwell, there's one cosmic factor (As Above, So Below!) that we have a definite moment for: the 11 South Saros Series eclipse that is Bob Maxwell's death Solar Eclipse which occurred on July 11, 1991 @18Can58. The themes of 11 South are quite descriptive of multiple events which occurred in 1991 including the mysterious death of journalist-writer Danny Casolaro whose research notes for the book he was writing on what he called The Octopus disappeared from his hotel room prior to the discovery of his body. Part of his investigation was the theft of Promis software and for more info, here's a What Really Happened? video originally posted here in 2016 concerning Danny Casolaro and The Octopus, aka, the global crime syndicate.

Above is the 11 South Solar Eclipse Horoscope of 1991 and its themes which to me describe the deaths of both Casolaro and Maxwell with Maxwell's natal planetary links penned in green around the outside for the sake of comparison. As you see, Maxwell's natal Jupiter Rx @11Scorpio rises (11Sco = "A Drowning Man Rescued', as noted). This chart is set for Washington DC although a New York chart works, too, and shows almost the same cusps. Setting the chart for Jerusalem (where he's buried on the Mount of Olives) or Maxwell's place of birth is possible but don't show as many Angular planets. Yet charts must be set for some location or another, and of course with an eclipse, the exact hour of perfection is chosen by the Great Cosmic Clock of which Planet Earth is a part.

11 South Themes: the need for sudden reforms; old ideas and methods fail and new systems are required in order to deal with events; any blocks could be violently or tragically removed. (Paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Other potentials for violence, murder, bodily harm, and intervention of a higher power are in the horoscope and include: the eclipse rises with Pollux (danger of disgrace, murder, rape cruelty--A. Louis) and leads a Locomotive shape of planets denoting the ruthless, high-powered executive determined on success (Maxwell or...?); planet Pluto of the Underworld, aka, 'the assassin' rises in intense Scorpio (the sign associated with death) with Pluto apex in a midpoint picture with Mars-Saturn (the 'death axis'--Ebertin) so we have potentials for rage and fury of destruction, bodily harm, death, and murder. Also rising is Venus-Saturn = Pluto: retaliation, separation, and/or passing states of chaos (Ebertin).

Additionally, there's Maxwell's natal Neptune (ruler of the oceanic realms) @15Leo54 conjunct the Midheaven of this chart which suggests loss, death by drowning (or by heart attack: Leo), dissolution, identity change, subterfuge, and/or deception as possible goals (MC). Then with his Jupiter conjunct ASC and Neptune at MC, the speculative, bubbly, wastrel pair of Jupiter-Neptune are prominent for him at that particular period in relation to the eclipse suggesting potentials for misjudgment, fraud, deception, and living in a dream world that results in a rude awakening. Could Pluto in Scorpio provide such a rude awakening? That would be my suspicion, in an assassin role or not.

And note that marked on the chart, lower right, is the current position of transit Neptune @17Pis27 closely conjunct the natal Uranus (17:29) of Robert Maxwell which suggests generational conflicts that bring significant changes to how things are done. This reminds me, if not you, of the 11 South eclipse themes and the fact that a poorly performing Bob Maxwell was on the verge of facing bankruptcy, disgrace, loss, and possible prison not to mention how his fate would affect his offspring, wife, his investors and associates (underworld and otherwise). He'd mismanaged finances for a while imho, plus, years of over-indulgence had taken a toll on his health as well so whether or not he 'fell' or whether steps were taken against him before he could 'name names' remains a mystery--including in the spy world. Yet this is a typical mystery since death from one cause or another can be an outcome for people who 'know too much' and this could be the case according to the messages lurking within the 11 South eclipse horoscope. Unless you have other ideas?

Synastry Grid: Donald Trump vs John Bolton

An Astrological Comparison of Donald Trump and John Bolton

by Jude Cowell

As you've heard, neocon warhawk John Bolton is Trump's designated National Security Adviser now that General McMaster has been ousted from the White House. Let's take a look at the aspects between Trump and Bolton in the synastry grid, below. Since Bolton's birth hour is so far unknown, a speculative 'noon' hour is used--his Sun and Moon remained in their signs the whole day through--Sun Scorpio and Moon Cancer, Double Water (see his personality blend notes, below):

Across are the planets of Donald Trump (June 14, 1946 10:54 am Queens, NY with his Mars 26Leo rising with royal Regulus). Down are the noon planets of John Bolton (November 20, 1948 'noon' Baltimore, Maryland). Marked in Red are the aspects likely to cause the most conflict between them (squares and oppositions). I would consider the Trump Mars square Bolton Sun the most challenging aspect, dynamic though it is. Note that Bolton was born with a disassociate conjunction between Mars in Sagittarius and Jupiter @1Cap05 which is opposed by chaos-creator Uranus Rx @29Gem44, a critical-crisis 29th degree of impatience, and conjunct a Cardinal World Point (00Cancer). His Jupiter in Capricorn opposes Trump's Mercury in Cancer, also a challenging aspect (beliefs vs thinking) which hints at misunderstandings and differences of opinion. Their association begins with a bang but may end in acrimony as so many of Trump's relationships do but these two 'warriors' are rather a lot alike which can make things even worse after a time of working together. Plus, Mr. Bolton's natal Saturn in Virgo does tend to be the critic and, as we know, Mr. Trump's overly sensitive ego cannot tolerate criticism.

In his natal chart, John Bolton's Sun in late Scorpio conjoins his Chiron denoting a deep wound to his sense of self or personality probably via father during Bolton's childhood. However, Sun-Chiron does give him a sense of having a mission in life, Scorpionic as it is. And with Trump's shaky Gemini personality in need of constant approval, their relationship may be fraught with egocentric demands between them which spill over onto others. Yet war, strife, and conflict seem to be both men's aims in life (Mars trine Mars in Fire signs) though their perspectives differ (Venus SQ Venus) and we see that in Bolton's noon chart, Midheaven, the Goal Point, is @1Sag = "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire." Well, he has certainly demonstrated previously his grand ideas and plans to further the American Empire no matter how many innocent people must be bombed (of course, that's my opinion of him--disagree as you wish). There are, however, some beneficial aspects between them (sextiles, trines, possibly conjunctions) but since we're talking about that 'organized system of hatreds', Politics, we'll consider the negative ones in this post.

Now Bolton's explosive Mars-Uranus opposition is a primary motivator in his psyche and identifies his leaning toward reactionary politics and revolution, spurred by his opposition to the status quo. It also suggests that he is drawn to criminals and criminal activity, and possesses a volcanic temper. If any of this suggests Donald Trump, then we agree. For one thing, both men were born under a BOWL shape of planets led by quirky, quixotic Uranus in changeable Gemini. Add to Bolton a Jupiter-Uranus opposition as well and we have a neocon with dogmatic beliefs, a tendency toward adventurism, exploration, and erratic action. His Mercury-Pluto square suggests cruel and/or blunt speech and an obsessive personality who listens very little to others--again, like Donald Trump.

Yet perhaps that's a difference between them--Bolton may actually hold beliefs while Trump's 'beliefs' change with the last person's opinion he heard expressed. Or will this be a huge war hawking ruh-roh as Trump listens to Bolton and attacks Iran? My suspicion is that their partnership will allow two bad actors to scheme together toward global conflagration, as directed by their hidden masters. But hopefully, that's just me fretting--and perhaps their love won't last!

John Bolton's Double-Water Personality Blend

With his watery Sun Scorpio-Moon Cancer personality blend, John Bolton is deeply fond of 'the good ole days' and with this position in the White House those days may have come again--for him. But everyone else--watch out! Bolton is shrewd, perceptive (smarter than Donald Trump), and secretive as only Scorpio can be. A strong sense of duty may motivate him but going by subjective hunches are already in Uranian Trump's wheel house. Mr. Bolton better not show up Mr. Trump! Bolton has a strong sense of himself while Trump does not and both are very ego-sensitive and impulsive as they tend to give objectivity a pass. Still, Bolton's Jupiter-Saturn trine denotes common sense which Trump has so little of. Actually, both men tend to let negative emotions consume them as we see from Trump's obsessive tweets.

Curiously, Bolton's Sun Scorpio-Moon Cancer blend is shared by Theodore Roosevelt and Dan Rather--a president and a journalist! (See the Harveys' Sun Sign-Moon Sign for more details.)

Bolton's Prenatal Solar Eclipse

John Bolton's Prenatal Solar Eclipse occurred on November 1, 1948 @8Sco43 in the 4 South Saros Series with themes of: strong emotional feelings in relation to money and/or relationships; anger, lust; relationship events seem fated and are beyond personal control; a sudden desire to finish relationships; emotions are blocked or checked which creates much frustration; avoid rash actions until things settle down (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology; my italics.) 4 South last manifested on December 4, 2002 in the lead-up to the ill-advised, preemptive Iraq War that Bolton helped engineer and promote. 4 South next occurs on December 14, 2020 @23Sag08--less than 2 degrees from the natal Moon of Donald Trump and opposing his natal Gemini Sun--and not far from Bolton's natal Mars @25Sag--planet of war and conflict.

In closing, I should gingerly mention what you may be able to read at the bottom of the synastry grid--that John Bolton's Syzygy Moon, a Full Moon @24Tau19, conjoins the natal Midheaven of Donald Trump (24Tau18--and his Phaethon) and both will receive a New Moon @24Tau36 on May 15, 2018 which is scarily tied in with the 70-year Fig Tree Prophecy of Israel. My apologies, gentle reader, if this offends you, but I just thought you might care to know if you don't--that it's late days for Planet Earth. Can you feel it?

Cosmic Blinks: Events and Politics in 2018

February 9, 2018: today with the 'Overnight Shutdown" cut short, Americans bask in the afterglow of the GOP's massive spending bill signed by wastrel-in-chief Donald Trump this morning so it may be a good time to list a few SO'W posts concerning year 2018.

You, of course, have some of your own but here's a list of mine with links to 2018 Eclipses included--and note that the GOP's gargantuan funding bill (for the military, disaster relief, domestic programs and more) was passed and signed today under the auspices of the soon-coming Solar Eclipse of February 15 manifesting a mere 6 days hence (linked, below) which yours truly has termed, the 'We The People Solar Eclipse' because it eclipses our national Moon in Aquarius (in the US 'Sibly chart' @27AQ). But if 'eclipsed' isn't the correct word for coming events, perhaps 'stimulated' or 'triggered into action' will turn out to be more descriptive of how the American people react!

Please note that all posts on the following list contain links of their own, some of which may be redundant. In no particular order they are:

2018 Signs in the Sky: Prophecy and Israel as Fig Tree regarding the Biblical 70-year prophecy concerning Israel. This post links to the Lunar Eclipse of January 31, 2018, the 'We The People' Solar Eclipse of February 15 (as mentioned, above), and a post concerning Trump's New Moon, Manafort's Trial, and Uranus into Taurus all of which align in mid-May 2018.

2018 Lunar and Solar Eclipses with Themes--eclipses are the 'cosmic blinks';

And shown in comparison are the Spring Equinox Horoscopes of 2017 and 2018;

2018 Signs in the Sky: Prophecy and Israel as Fig Tree

Previously we have discussed the Solar Return 2018 of the State of Israel which involves the 70-year Biblical prophecy of the fig tree symbolism for Israel. This is my reason for posting the 2018 Return chart since the chart times 70 years since the creation of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948...1948 + 70 = 2018 and that's a mathematical fact.

Now I realize that few SO'W readers (if any!) believe in Biblical prophecy these days yet I feel a responsibility to caution such readers on that score. Although it is not an Astrology book per se, Adrian Gilbert's intriguing book Signs in the Sky: Astrological and Archaeological Evidence for the Birth of a New Age #ad provides certain information concerning Sun-Regulus, constellation Orion's importance in the final scheme as it rises over Jerusalem, and other 'signs' of the Tribulation and the last days.

One puzzling factor is Donald Trump's role in all of this with his Mars rising in Leo, but most significantly, Regulus rising with 'sun god' asteroid Apollo in his chart (Ascendant 29Leo). Curiously, Trump's progressed Sun is now @00Virgo, the current precessed position of royal Regulus. Unless his birth data is incorrect, Trump's chart factors seem part of the Prophecy yet I have much trouble with this due to his extreme lewdness and bigotry. Not that our Creator can't 'use' an imperfect human being for His ultimate purposes for there's rarely been any other kind on Earth! Yet in December 2017 when Trump announced the US embassy would be relocated to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv (in 2019, last I heard, preceded by multiple years of construction), it seemed to me more than a little prophetic in relation to the 70-year Prophecy. Karma on steroids?

Solar Eclipses of 2000 Repeat in 2018/19

Is someone manipulating these events on Earth to reflect the fig tree symbolism? Or are events a natural As Above So Below phenomena? In his book, Gilbert suggests year 2000 as possibly the start of The Tribulation which should be over (fulfilled) in 2018--when "the time is nigh". As of 2000, the Belt of Orion rises directly in the East with Mintaka slightly below the celestial equator and from Jerusalem, the Belt can be seen rising over the Mount of Olives. Other signs are listed including Summer Solstice 2000 (June 21). Certainly, the 'Nostradamus Eclipse' of August 11, 1999 may be seen as part of this--and we're under its influence again for it manifested as The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2018 in the 1 North Saros Series--conjunct Mr. Trump's natal Ascendant!

Now year 2000 as you may remember brought Solar Eclipses in the 1 South Series (the next 1 South occurs February 15, 2018), the 2 Old North Series (Trump's Prenatal Eclipse Series which repeats on July 13, 2018 @21Cancer amidst the Gemini Twins, Castor and Pollux), the 2 New North ('The Tower' Eclipse occurring again on August 11, 2018 @19Leo), and the 2 South on Christmas Day 2000 @4Capricorn (the degree of transit Saturn as I type today). 2 South won't repeat until January 6, 2019 @15Capricorn, and of course Saturn rules Capricorn which is also related to the State of Israel, and to Palestine (though usually as a pair -- Saturn and Uranus; Israel's natal chart may be viewed as Palestine's natal chart as well).

So! In ancient times the Sun-Regulus link evoked the heavy responsibility of acting as God's regent and this is my trouble--seeing Uranian snake oil salesman Donald Trump as a man capable of handling such a weighty task on behalf of Heaven and Earth. For to me, the self-styled "old fashioned playboy" seems the epitome of imperfection and is apparently uninterested in heavenly things--his treasure is on Earth and he acts proud of his faith-in-the-temporary attitude at the exclusion of the Eternal. Yet the Sun-Regulus tradition enjoyed by ancient Egyptian pharoahs and centuries of past kings spawned the idea of rule by 'divine right' which doesn't seem too off-the-mark for Mr. Trump to use with his narcissistic mentality--to his own advantage.

How the Zionists of Israel (who may be ignoring the 70-year Prophecy for all I know!) will use Trump as a tool for their own purposes remains to be seen as 2018 hurdles along toward 2019 and the fulfillment of Time for he and his announcement concerning Jerusalem have already played a role in the fig tree symbolism which according to Scripture culminates in 2018 and which Mayan Prophecy says ends with a cataclysm..

Trump to move US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem (Phaethon?)

Of Prophecy, Fate, Phaethon in Taurus, Israel, and Donald Trump

by Jude Cowell

Dec 6, 2017: Today Mr. Trump announced the relocation of the American embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel to Jerusalem just in time to aid in the fulfillment of the Scriptural 70-year prophecy concerning Israel and its Holy City (see Daniel 9:24). It is reported that the embassy relocation and construction will take a few years to complete.

In a previous post, I published the May 14, 1948 4:00 pm EET chart of the State of Israel but today I'm posting the horoscope that Nicholas Campion says many Israeli astrologers use. It is set for 32 minutes later when Ben-Gurion stated that,"The State of Israel has arisen" (independence from Britain).

In the bi-wheel image, below, Israel's Solar Return 2018 planets (May 14, 2018 @3:59:21 pm EET Tel Aviv (since it's the natal location in 1948) is shown around the May 14, 1948 natal chart. All founding data from which the Solar Return chart issues is gleaned from Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes:

Please enlarge the image to read chart notes for as you see, Israel's natal 12th house Neptune @10Libra Rx rises in the Solar Return 2018 chart and natal Sun @23Tau41 is the engine leading a Locomotive pattern of planets in 1948 indicating ruthless achievement. Neptune rising suggests instability, deception, and/or potentials for fraud to occur yet Neptune also represents the Divine Source and this can relate spiritually to Biblical prophecy

A Locomotive pattern also shows up in the 2018 Return chart but it is lead by Jupiter @17Sco39 Rx. Another planetary pattern that appears in both charts is a Thor's Hammer (aka, Fist of God) which contain elements of fate or karma (reaping what's been sown). In 1948, the Hammer formed between the Pluto-NN square pointing toward natal Jupiter @27Sag38 Rx in 2nd house; in SR 2018, it's between the Saturn-ASC square pointing toward natal/Return Sun in 7th house of Partnerships.

We may wish to read the 1948 and 2018 Hammers as midpoint pictures: in 1948 the potential is for 'power attained through force with the help of others' which obviously came true. In 2018, the potential is for 'difficult conditions or circumstances' and/or 'separation' (Ebertin), spotlighting such conditions that have already been in effect for years now particularly for the Palestinian people.

Note that a natal or foundation chart for the state of Israel also applies to the same for Palestine). Also note that the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse 'hit' Israel's 1948 Mars (28Leo18)--and royal star Regulus (keyphrase: success if revenge is avoided). Yet so far, an endless round of revenge tragically characterizes Israel and Palestine since ancient times.

As for the timing of the 70-year prophecy related to 2018, note that there will be a New Moon on May 15, 2018 @24Tau36--within orb of Israel's natal Sun and denoting a new cycle of activity. Another curious factor in the SR 2018 chart is that one of the asteroids of fate, Phaethon (the Greek version of Icarus who flew too close to the Sun, crashed, and burned) is snugged between the Taurus Sun and Moon, however, in relation to the 70-year prophecy, Phaethon @11Tau02--about to make its own Return to Israel's natal Phaethon (16Tau23)--may be merely a minor detail.

And yet, is it a fated synchronicity that 3-mile wide asteroid Phaethon hurls extremely close to Earth just before Christmas 2017? A certain meteor shower peaks on December 13 with Phaethon traveling among the Geminids. A Super Moon (Nolle) veiled them from sight in 2016 but here are details on where, when, and how to see the 2017 Geminid Meteor Shower.

And where is Donald Trump's natal Phaethon, you may wonder. Born June 14, 1946, Mr. Trump's natal Phaethon is @23Tau02 conjunct his natal MC--conjunct Israel's natal Sun!

So if you look up and manage to spot Phaethon among the starry throng on December 13 or during the wee hours of December 14, tell him Donald Trump says Hello.

May 25, 2017 Gemini New Moon: Trump on a Pilgrimage

Horoscope: Thursday May 25, 2017 New Moon @4Gem46 3:44:24 pm edt Washington DC; Hour of Mars (out-of-bounds); chart-ruler Venus @19Ari14, the diplomat, in 7th house of Alliances and Open Enemies applies twice: 1. trine Saturn Rx in 3rd house = long-lasting alliances may be formed based on mutual commitments and goals; someone's accomplishments are favored or rewarded; 2. conjunct Uranus @26Ari42 in 7th house = unorthodox or non-traditional alliances are formed, group organizations are favored unless negative factors interfere.

Please enlarge the chart for details that are not discussed in this text.

While the Cat's Away

As you know, Mr. Trump left the US on Friday May 19, 2017 for a 9-day tour overseas, or as this New Moon's 'YOD' pattern suggests he left "on a pilgrimage" via apex Jupiter Rx in Libra (his natal Jupiter @17Lib27 at Direct Station and the third conjunction in his three-fer Jupiter Return 2016/2017 due on August 4th) --see lower left for my notes; Jupiter apex in a YOD pattern (special task; crossroads; turning point; crisis if mishandled--the New Moon Jupiter as the handle of a Bucket describes an important direction of interest and links the two hemispheres of the chart). Since he's visiting Saudi Arabia (Islam) and dares to make a speech on their religion (God help us), checks out Israel in his superficial way, and, as US presidents do, bows to the Pope in the Vatican, a religious 'pilgrimage' seems a totally appropriate way to describe this perspective-broadening voyage.

Gemini is the sign of travel (especially air travel) and boundary-ignoring Jupiter does love to travel and expand his influence--here, in Airy Libra, sign of Diplomacy.

Plus, on another level, astrological Jupiter may also represent priests and gurus, so there's that. A bunch of bigwig Jupiterians face to face with shared goals in mind--what could possibly go wrong? Maybe Mr. Trump's natal Mercury-Neptune square might cause trouble for his square is echoed at the base of this YOD by a Mercury-Neptune sextile of opportunity. But for him (and thus for America) the beneficial influence of the sextile with its curiosity and communication skill can be hampered by Trump's square with its misconceptions, fantasies, and his personal version of the truth.

Actually, we've previously discussed the May 25th New Moon which perfects as the unpredictable Mr. Trump, political and diplomatic amateur, makes an appearance at the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium where he will expect to be the most famous person in the room.

Also see As Italy Prepares for the G7 Summit, It's Trump vs the Volcano and What to Expect from Trump's First Overseas Trip.

What a tour for his nibs! Full of so many chances for the bristling Mr. Trump's exhausting Uranian quirkiness and misspeaks that can so easily complicate an already complicated and sensitive world.

Astro-Note: The New Moon of May 25, 2017 perfects at 9:44 pm CEDT in Brussels, Belgium; ASC 6Sag58; MC 4Lib22; New Moon in 6th house; Saturn Rx rising in 1st house, and Bucket handle Jupiter Rx in the 10th house of Public Status and as chart-ruler, Jupiter has no application but stands alone; the difficult Mars-Saturn opposition lies across the 1/7 axis of Partnerships and Alliances in Brussels suggesting unstable stop-go, off-again-on-again level of energy.

Senator (now VP) Joe Biden on Shalom TV: "I Am a Zionist" - clip

Found at last! For years the location of this 2-minute-39-second clip of an interview with VP Joe Biden concerning Zionism (he's one of them, he assures us), Iraq, and Israel eluded me. Here it is, uploaded in April 2007 by Shalom TV:

You know, these guys and gals (sometimes known as 'world leaders') are spending a huge amount of their time, effort, and taxpayer money (and pretend fiat money) trying to speedily fulfill Bible if the God of All Creation is in need of their arrogant, anti-societal meddling.

Actually there are several types of Zionism. And from August 2010, here's a post on Zionism and the Natal Chart of Israel. You may also wish to check out a few Astro-Notes on VP Joe Biden if you're daring.

Neptune-Pluto-Saturn: Netanyahu Addresses the US Congress

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a 19-year history of beating American war drums against Iran. Yesterday, he addressed a Joint Session of Congress and did just that in what some pundits call an unprecedented act.

Netanyahu also addressed the US Congress in 2011 and on July 10, 1996 during Bill Clinton's presidency as mentioned here at The Intercept. He stated in 1996 that "time is running out...we have to act," which was echoed in yesterday's message concerning Iran's potential development of a nuclear bomb.

A Few Brief Astro-Notes

Benjamin Netanyahu's address on July 10, 1996 falls under the auspices of a 16 South Solar Eclipse Series which manifested @28Aries on April 17, 1996. 16S themes include dealing with issues of wasted energy especially in groups, and misdirected motivation. No real action should be taken, cautions Bernadette Brady in her book Predictive Astrology. This series last manifested on April 29, 2014 @9Taurus and began on September 21, 1653 @29Virgo.

So knowing that transiting Neptune now floats through its own murky sign of Pisces (which is also a sign of war) and nears US natal Ceres and our Pluto-Chiron midpoint (Plutocracy; oppression; racism; Zionism...), it's informative that on July 10, 1996, Neptune had reached late Capricorn (sign of government, law, business, and structure) and conjoined US natal Pluto, karmic planet of power, control, death, transformation, and atomic energy. Also note that 1996 is the year that US natal Saturn turned retrograde by progression in early Scorpio--no longer in its sign of exaltation, Libra, as in 1776--and in 2015 our nation's authority remains in Rx condition indicating issues of weakness vs strength.

Neptune = lies, fraud, or...inspiration

Neptune to Pluto times a period when power is dissolved by subtle means such as treachery and poison, and can favor those with a religious message and/or with psychic power. Did Netanyahu 'poison the well' of the Capitol Building by rallying a US president to wage war on enemies of Israel? Some would say Yes. I would say that his Political Theater performances of 1996, 2011, and 2015 provide the American and global public with futuristic scenes of the Zionist-led global government they wish to set up in Jerusalem.

Does this particular Christian want Israel destroyed? Of course not. Should Christians be worried? Yes, as should Jews, Muslims, and Buddhists for such totalitarian secular regime changers care less than nothing for religion of any kind. They'll have all religions at war with one another before their draconian Utopian vision of global governance is realized and no allegiance will be allowed but to the 'new world order'.

"War is a racket." - General Smedley Butler

Related reading: Zionism and the Natal Chart of Israel (horoscope shown) where you'll see Israel's 10th house Saturn-Pluto conjunction of brutality now expanded (Netanyahu hopes) by transit Jupiter in Leo. Expansion plans begin to move ahead soon once Jupiter's Direct Station occurs on April 8, 2015.


Video of Netanyahu's 1996 Address to Congress may be viewed in the C-SPAN Video Library and the 1996/2015 echo chamber is quite amazing. Or if you missed it, check out last evening's The Daily Show where Jon Stewart helpfully points out the similarities and the undermining nature (Neptune) of Netanyahu's and Boehner's political machinations.

March 2012: Plutocrats Beat War Drums

Warmongers and Symbols of Eagles and Apes

by Jude Cowell

Greetings All! Yes, I'm still busy with relocation, office set-up, and with what is hoped to be final tech glitches addressed this evening.

Meanwhile, much goes on in the nation and in Washington DC politics with Israeli war drums as an unwelcome background noise. Does anyone reading this post think that war with Iran is a good idea? Most of the non-psychotic people I know agree that war is seldom if ever an answer and only creates more problems and an abundance of misery, some of which will be due to 'blowback'.

Personally I assume that those who plan, trump up justifications, and execute hellish wars have little if any concern with blowback for it tends to most deeply affect innocent women, children, and the elderly who are disenfranchised, maimed, killed, or made homeless by such heinous actions of warmongers who entertain win-win mindsets and a win-at-any-cost Machiavellian directive from on high.

Now if you've read this blog before, you probably know which planetary duo I primarily associate with disenfranchisement, oppression, racism, other -isms including Capitalism and Communism, and primal violence: Pluto/Chiron. The duo met in Great Conjunction on December 30, 1999 upon America's natal Ascendant (our nation itself) @ 11 Sagittarius 23. Rounding up we have '12Sag':

"A Flag Turned into an Eagle that Crows"...


positive expression: successful self-establishment through genuine self-expression;

negative (unconscious/shadow side--jc): idle prejudices and unsubstantiated claims. (Marc Edmund Jones.)

'Unsubstantiated claims' seems to be the order of the day for the US and for Israel--not that I trust Iranian politicians to be truthful about their nuclear intentions, of course. Still, when global plutocrats are determined to force a worldwide New World Order agenda, we see what is done to those whose dare stand in the way of their long-planned global domination plan--some say, 'The Great Plan', a devilishly totalitarian twist meant to ruinously divert the lives of decent folks everywhere.

Perhaps Adriano Carelli's The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac can shed more light upon the Pluto/Chiron conjunction which ushered in the much-touted 'New Millennium' though I shall type for you the degree prior--'11Sag' since it closely applies to today's topic and because Carelli recommends use of the exact degree rather than the rounding-up method. Actually, both apply since earlier degrees give unconscious information on the subject at hand, as does the Illumination Point (opposite degree.) Not all of Carelli's degrees (360) provide a word picture (symbol) though all have explanations--this one is quite descriptive, and I quote :

"11Sag": "An Ape Riding a Wolf"...

This degree will favor a military and a political career. It confers all the virtues of a noble and fearless heart and all the vices of a sly, dissembling and unscrupulous mind. The native is glib enough to defend the noblest cause, resorting to the underhand tricks employed to bolster up a forged and exploded cause. Strong favorable aspects would strike off the craftiness, whereas concurrence of evil features may taint the nobility of the cause.

The native will win many friends and make many enemies; and in his life, after seeing him through many perils, may have a sudden end."

Makes me wonder who's the ape and who's the wolf in the current war-threat scenario!

Since creating Stars Over Washington in October 2005, blogging on dire topics has been something of a tension release for me as well as a way to express my own dissent when my government fails to take a higher road. And since we've now fallen into yet another ditch along the way (and I'm a 'Daughter of the Revolution'...'30Cancer'), I again find myself writing about the misguided idea of waging war--in tandem with Israel or alone--against Iran which would bring oppression against the good people of Iran whom I have always admired. (Not their government officials, but The People who desire to live in peace, just as the majority of Americans do.) The old Flower Power Generation idea of putting politicians, military generals, and the Ones Behind the Scenes Who Stir Up War (ex: global bankers who profit obscenely) into a Giant Ring and let them duke it out seems completely appropriate to the current situation for a peacenik like myself.

Such a Herculean battle would, for once, provide powerful Pluto/Chiron types what they deserve rather than visiting horror upon the innocent as natural resources and national treasures are looted and territory is added to the earthly--and thus temporary--dominion of the warmongers who betray and oppress humanity.

Netanyahu in America: heckle at your peril

In yesterday's post, written in real time, I wondered what was happening in the hall to the lady who shouted out as Israeli PM Netayahu was addressing a Joint Session of the US Congress whose members began applauding loudly in an attempt to cover up the noise as she was strong-armed out of the room...

Protester Who Heckled Netanyahu Beaten, Arrested at Hospital

By Eric W. Dolan

The 28-year-old Jewish American woman was allegedly tackled by members of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) during Netanyahu's speech to Congress after she yelled, "stop Israeli war crimes." #

Unfortunately she was sitting too far away from yesterday's speaker to hurl her shoes.

As our much-lauded President Abraham Lincoln said, "To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men."

Horoscope: Solar Eclipse 11Gem02 June 1, 2011

On June 1, 2011, a partial Solar Eclipse occurs @ 11Gemini02. Below you see its horoscope set for the White House, Washington DC; Hour Saturn 10Lib33 Rx in 12th house of Karma and Politics; Saturn trines the Eclipse which falls in the 8th house (in DC) of taxation, shared resources, credit, debt, insurance, big business, other people's money, and transformation.

The helpful trine from Saturn to the eclipse indicates that respect, persistence, and shouldering one's burdens will aid the karmic implications and potentially difficult results from this Solar Eclispe which sits upon the Partnership angle in the US (Sibly) chart and conjoins US natal Uranus 8Gem55: Sun/Moon = n Uranus: creating new ways of revealing old ideas; setting oneself apart from others; unusual twists of fate (Munkasey.)

If you're interested, NASA provides a list of the Solar and Lunar Eclipses of 2011.

June 1, 2011 5:02:31 pm edt at the White House

Chart-ruler Mars 16Tau03 is in 7th H with Venus 20Tau36 and Mercury 28Tau06, the Lord of the Eclipse so we know that mercurial realms may be affected, such as: Communications (including Media), Transport, Trade, and Negotiations, Pacts, and Agreements. Young people and the news should be included.

The only applying aspect made by Mars is a quindecile (165 degrees = obsession-compulsion) with the Ascendant 1Sco00 (the Sun position in the NWO natal horoscope for October 24, 1993 - the Uranus/Neptune conjunction, # 3 of 3 @ '18Cap' = "The Union Jack" = smug or strong-armed paternalism...Uranus/Neptune are the planets of Illuminism.) Competition and agression are described.

With money sign Taurus on 8th cusp and at a 29th degree, evaluating Venus rules 8th H matters yet with a sense of expediency or even over-eagerness as a critical 29th degree implies. Someone or something is in a hurry! But there's difficult Alcyone, one of the Weeping Sisters, awaiting.

Pluto is co-ruler of the chart and applies to a square with Uranus (Uranus/Pluto = 'collapse of the old order of things, construction of the new' - Ebertin); upsets and violence as a new order is forced upon society. Yes, we know.

Nebulous Neptune 00Pis56 ('1Pis' = "A Public Market" = trade, commerce, or the NYSE?), planet of fraud and deception, is posited in 4th H (Foundation or Basis of the Matter; Real Estate as the Mississippi River floods people's farms and adds to potential food shortages and upticks in food and other prices) along with wounding Chiron now on its degree in President Obama's natal chart. And of course, we've seen other examples of water damage since Neptune and Chiron have been transiting together including the Deepwater Horizon Blowout and the Nuclear Meltdown at Fukushima, Japan - both catastrophes that 'keep on giving' into Infinity.

The Jupiter/Neptune pair (speculators, wastrels, religiosity, and/or those with grand imaginings and plans) rule and co-rule the 5th H of Gambling and Risk-Taking, and their midpoint conjoins Aries Point, a degree of World Manifestation and Recognition.

The eclipse Moon rules 9th H and indicates changes and fluctuations in 9th H matters, plus, all of our nation's Cancerian planets are posited there: Venus, Jupiter, Sun and Mercury Rx. Eclipse Sun rules 10th H of Public Status and Career. Midheaven (The Goal; Aspirations) 6Leo12 is conjoined by US natal North Node (NN; destiny; future direction) and both are at apex of a YOD (Finger of God = special task; turning point; a crossroads; crisis) formed at its base by a sextile between plutocratic Pluto/Chiron. And of note: Chiron here is Barack Obama's natal Chiron.

America's NN at MC places our nation's SN at IC (Home; Homeland; Domestic Scene; Security Issues; Endings) which seems to indicate that career and public status matters may go better for us than home matters. However, IC 6AQ12 has the oppressive, corporate Pluto/Chiron midpoint upon it which relates to violence and to home foreclosures as the Oil Can Harry plutocrats continue knocking at our doors and tossing Americans out on the sidewalks to live in their cars (Mercury's 11Gem02.)

8th H ruler Venus applies to a sesquisquare (135 degr) with manipulative string-puller Pluto 6Cap51 Rx (Lord of the Underworld) from 7th H of Partnerships and Open Enemies to 3rd H of Communications and Neighborhoods; this 'interlaced squares' aspect is usually considered minor (an octile...irritation; health issues) and indicates intense interaction with an urge toward promotion of ideas (M. Meyer.)

The Venus/Pluto combo of energies relates to bankruptcy, extremes of private wealth hidden in secret places, volcanic activity (including in financial centers), and breakdown within the fabric of society. (Munkasey.)

Are you still with me? This is depressing, believe me this Saturnian astrologer knows, which is why I've put off this post as long as possible. Yet identifying and facing monsters is the only way to vanquish them. And after the predicted-by-some Judgment Day of May 21, 2011, perhaps this analysis would be different (if it occurred at all) though I doubt it. Well, since May 21st is tomorrow, I shall proceed without such hindsight especially since the popular idea of a 'Rapture' and how the Second Coming will play out does not tally with my own studies of the Books of Daniel and Revelation....though I do agree that there are signs that The End is near if not here. Of course, the smartest thing is to be ready whenever He returns!

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles this eclipse, Something to Cry About which I assume refers to its 8th cusp at critical or crisis degree: 29Tau24 and the nearness of a difficult Fixed Star, Alcyone 00Gem00: Something to Cry About; sorrow; misfortune; exile; suffering. Any or all may apply.

The above mentioned 8th H and mercurial themes are implicated in this sorrow and we must expect that the enlarged US deficit and debt ceiling imbroglio are factors in where the implied misfortune plays out especially considering that the US dollar is under fire and being abandoned by creditors along with America's dimming reputation in the world and the potential for a US default on debts...if the GOP succeeds in crashing the US economy to make President Obama look bad for 2012.

Other possibilities for this eclipse's influence include: loss of support for the government (political? financial? debt ceiling extension?), sanitation, burial laws, morbidity, imports, and contagion (did you notice that anthrax is back in the news this week?), with attention and discussion relating to taxation, as mentioned. There may be death or resignation (more?) of statesmen, literary figures, educators, or - chillingly - injury to or death of travelers; foreign treaties and pacts are under stress as well. (Teal.)

And with transiting asteroid MIDAS now conjoining US natal Uranus 8Gem55, both bodies are 'eclipsed' or stimulated by the June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse. This doesn't sound positive for US gold reserves which would affect the global financial system.

Please click chart image to enlarge for further info such as Fixed Stars, midpoints, some US natal placements, and the Pluto/Chiron (plutocracy; corporatism; oppression) conjunction of December 30, 1999 in 2nd H of Earning Ability and Values with the conjunction's degree (11Sag23) opposed and potentially triggered by the June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse.

As you see, the ongoing T-Square of Saturn/Uranus = Pluto remains in effect causing the world harm, violence, rebellion, and war; Pluto is a prime actor in this eclipse chart as one leg in the YOD configuration as well as being apex planet of the Cardinal T-Square with such an apex Pluto indicating those with a willful desire to fulfill their ambitious plans through force, manipulation, and subversive actions (ex: secret societies; the Global Crime Syndicate); the Cardinal quality gives Pluto an overt and ruthless determination to overwhelm any and all opposition to 'his' (their) criminal objectives; explosive endings may be anticipated. (Bil Tierney's Dynamics of Aspects Analysis.)

One other factor I wish to mention: Lord (ruler) of the June 1, 2011 eclipse, Mercury, squares Neptune (2A50) which describes conditions of distortion of truth, fears of responsibility, lack of realism, fraudulent communications, and an inability or lack of courage for dealing with life's harsh realities. Negative escapism comes to mind but please use in moderation for whoever tries to escape their troubles by use of drugs (including alcohol) should be advised that troubles can swim!

Well, that's it for today. If you have on-topic and courteous opinions, remarks, or queries to make, please leave them in a Comment and I will reply as time permits.

And like the eclipses at the end of 2010 which seemed to indicate further financial collapse, this is one eclipse analysis where I'd love to be so very very wrong.


Mea culpa! I just now realized that I neglected to complete penning in (lower right) the name of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who now visits the White House one day after President Obama's major policy address on the Middle East (Saturn/Uranus) yesterday which began with '23Leo' rising and ended with Royal Star Regulus at Ascendant - Regulus = success if revenge is avoided - and as the world knows, endless acts of revenge and retaliation are all the region seems able to manage these days.

Also on the chart, I added that his visit is tomorrow, May 21, but apparently the Israeli eagle has already landed in Washington today and is said to be "disappointed" over Mr. Obama's speech which offered the 1967 borders as the way to go if one actually does want Peace for Palestine and Israel. However, it's actually the 1947 borders which may be the fairest and most legal even though this would put Galilee in Palestine, not Israel.

It is my personal belief that radical National-International Zionism does not want peace in the Middle East but rather a 'King of Jerusalem' and a world capital from which to dominate the entire globe of serfs and pawns...aka, a New World Order, the Utopian dream which inspired the founding of America as the New Atlantis.

For it isn't as if the White House would have sprung Obama's policy speech upon the Israeli government without telling them in advance what would be touted! And the political intrigues and theater performances least until May 21, 2011 at 6 pm Eastern Time.

And Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem March 23, 2011

In these troubled years I think of the Scriptural admonition to, Pray for the peace of Israel. Now with Jerusalem's bombing on March 23, 2011, marking the worst Israel-Gaza clashes since the 2009 war and the "small wars" said to be broken out along the border, I know of little else to do from afar, do you?

Yes, it is true that Good Shall Triumph! Yet I would love to have some Peace on Earth for a time and for everyone and their families, wouldn't you?

The Iron Wall (video link) -- of Zionist colonization

The Iron Wall (Video link)

"Zionist colonization must either stop, or else proceed regardless of the native population. Which means that it can proceed and develop only under the protection of a power that is independent of the native population - behind The Iron Wall, which the native population cannot breach."

Vladimir Jabotinsky 1923

Click to read details and view a 57-minute video on this important topic; naturally, the tense duo of Saturn (tectonic plates; soil; earth; constriction) and Uranus (splitting; breaking; loosening) are implicated and are associated in Mundane Astrology with the Middle East particularly Israel and Palestine. The duo's last Great Conjunction/s occurred three times through 1988 - under Ronald Reagan's watch though his deputies may have been minding the national store while the Gipper snoozed; Saturn and Uranus conjoined forces in the near-final three degrees of Sagittarius 27-28-29 rather near Galactic Center. 29 degrees of any sign, as you know, is often in critical or crisis mode and the planet prepares to move into new territory, the next sign.

We felt the Saturn/Uranus opposition in the November 2009 presidential election and again in 2010 across the Virgo-Pisces axis. Nowadays, with Capitol Hill's traditionalism v radicalism, plus riots, protests, strikes, rebellions, overthrows, stepdowns, bombings, disenfranchisement, earthquakes, volcanoes, and nuclear catastrophes, we groan under their brittle 165-degree quindecile relationship indicating 'disruption of governing systems' and 'defiance of law and order.'

Guess that also applies in the spiritual realm to natural law and order.


For more details on the compulsive-obsessive aspect The Quindecile, allow Ricki Reeves to explain.

Joy in Egypt as Mubarak Steps Down! Feb 11, 2011

Today President Hosni Mubarak has been vanquished by his people!!!

It's evening in Cairo and with protesters gathered at his palace after last evening's disappointing address, Hosni Mubarak has handed power to the Egyptian army and asked them to be in charge of the country's affairs.

This blogger celebrates the liberation of the Egyptian people (well done!) even though I know my global-elite-backed government may be shaking in its jackboots at the news (never mind what topcats in Washington say - their masters can't be happy) and Zionist Israeli government officials must be mightily worried about this amazing pardigm shift of power in the Middle East.

Egypt's populist overthrow is a major blow to the New World Order!

UPDATE 2/11/11 3:52 pm est: LINK TV is reporting that Swiss authorities have frozen the assets of the ousted Mubarak, a wise move (much of his hidden funds probably came from 30 years of US taxpayer money); also you may be interested in a fresh post: Mubarak Steps Down Under Rays of the Jan 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse.

Well, just as I prepared to post the natal horoscope of Hosni Mubarak with the transits of his pathetic address last evening placed around the chart (see below), the astounding news broke during this morning's broadcast of Democracy Now!. In my elation I shall place the chart here anyway and hope you may click to enlarge the image and read a few notes for yourself.

Hosni Mubarak, former president of Egypt

The horoscope is set for his birthdate May 4, 1928 Cairo (Kafr-el Muselha cannot be found on maps or in my software) at the moment of a Full Moon with Sun 14Tau05 conjunct Mercury (a picture of extreme stubbornness right there) and Moon 14Sco05, a combination of terrific stubbornness, ruthlessness, and fixed prejudices. I use the Full Moon of his day of birth because there was one at 10:11:41 pm EET.

Transit Saturn 17Lib01 Rx conjoins his natal Full Moon's Midheaven (Career; Public Standing; the WHY? Point) showing restriction in these matters for those who have dealt unwisely with responsibilities in the past (30 years of oppressing and robbing his people) - Saturn brings accountability to this ruling tyrant.

The iffy situation for the US may be seen in part by tr Saturn conjoining US Secondary Progressed Mars which has been retrograde since 2006. Tr NN 1Cap19 is rising in this speculative natal horoscope along with Mubarak's Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Series, 1 South @ 1Cap21: 'enthusiastic expression of ideas; flooded with options' (Brady) - but the only 'option' the people wanted him to take was to Go Away!

It is reported that Mubarak has left Cairo now for a resort (to rest up, poor thing)and must be fuming beyond belief. My hope and prayer is that the Egyptian people will be fairly and well treated by whoever steps in to fill the vacuum of power - and that their accounts will be balanced by a return of the millions, possibly billions, hidden away in Mubarak's secret accounts and which will necessitate putting him on trial.

Is there a spa for former dictators at The Hague?

Sex, Lies, Iran, Israel, and WikiLeaks (video)

This eleven-minute video contains comparisons between some of the WikiLeaks cables and the propaganda they tout that Arabs want the US to attack Iran. Really?
