Powerful Pluto opposing US natal Sun (leadership)

Me? I'm with Jessica

by Jude Cowell

For some time on my blogs I have occasionally mentioned transiting Pluto's effects as it traverses early to mid-Capricorn and opposes America's natal Venus, Jupiter, and Sun. Using an orb of plus or minus 5 degrees, transformative Pluto opposes US natal Sun (leadership; the presidency) @13Can+, depending on which birth hour you use for our nation on July 4, 1776, and we see that titanic power struggles abound in Washington DC. Also involved is the association of astrological Pluto with oppression (ex: 'lording it over others'), mind control and propaganda, and extreme wealth and riches hidden in secret places.

But let's not give a pass to Mr. Hades' links with the global Underworld Crime Syndicate, 'The Family', the International Banking Cartel ('City of London', etc), "The Octopus," total surveillance and spying, or even to the vicious character flaw of committing rape, a topic which Republicans struggle to define while obstructing legislation meant to protect women. Yes, Pluto is a sexy dude, which is more than can be said for the Todd Akinses amongst the GOP--even if it were appropriate.

As I type, tr Pluto sits at 9Cap27 which sextiles Saturn in sexy, occult, secretive Scorpio, quincunxes Jupiter Rx in Gemini (Direct Station @6Gem19 on January 30, 2013), and separates temporarily from its Cardinal Square with progressive Uranus in Aries, the sign where Ebertin described The Awakener as radical "Utopians" and zealots--you know, the ones in Congress who intend to take America's finances to the brink of default in a couple of months to make their ideological points while they play chicken with the 'faith and credit of the US' as they did in Summer 2011 for the sake of power-grabbing and thus handing our nation its first-ever credit downgrade. Those Utopians.

And they did it and will do it while pretending to care about America!

Wish I could say more today but with blogging time reduced this week due to family responsibilities, I am very glad to find that expert astrologer Jessica Murray has masterfully addressed the condition and events relating to Pluto opposing US natal Sun and other important transits in her comprehensive way on her blog at Daykeeper Journal so check it out if you haven't.

As you may be aware, the UK's natal Sun @10Cap opposes US natal Sun so tr Pluto has now conjoined London's leadership while opposing Washington's, a difficult transit that was on the other boot 100 years ago!

Can We Resist Pluto in Capricorn's 'Fear Factor'?

Here I am sassily publishing a thoughtful though anonymous reader's perspective concerning powerful, subversive Pluto's destructuring meander through Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business, which brings an imperative within the collective to resist the fear which this transit naturally engenders as Pluto creeps toward its 1776 position (27Cap33) in the US natal horoscope, a 'planetary return' never before experienced during America's brief and fabled history:

By no means am I an astrologer. I don't even qualify as an amateur my knowledge is so shallow. I do consult certain astrological sites. But I do recall that one recommendation from several astrologers about Pluto's entry into Capricorn is to refuse to give into fear. I do understand that Capricorn is an organizational sign (I have a Cap ascendant at 4+ degrees and am thus by nature a worrier - but I'm also a triple Aries - sun, moon and Mercury so go figure....).

I also have understood Pluto to mean the great transformer. So it stands to reason that the organization(s) of the world will be transformed on a very fundamental level. There is so much fear moving about the US and the world today (except perhaps for Asia - not counting Japan). There are many good reasons to fear - climate change, the bank-induced explosion of the financial sector, the economic treason to the American middle class perpetrated by the international oligarchs and their willing servants among the politicians and media.

The righties fear and foment the culture wars. We lefties understandably fear the machinations of the righties (end of collective bargaining, the push to lower the pay of employees to developing nations' standards, the threats to what's left of the social safety net, Obama's lack of spine or collusion or unfortunate placement as the Jackie Robinson of national politics with the attendant demand that he turn himself into a pretzel to get along with the GOP/TP, etc.) I'm not trying to be a pollyanna. Clearly, there is a welter of fear mongers out and about in every corner who seek to profit from those very fears they raise.

But again, I go back to, I think, Jessica Murray's advice with the Pluto incursion into Cap that we refuse to live in fear. And we act against those fears and align ourselves with the higher purpose of combating all the sources pushing our fear buttons with faith turned into action by speaking up for and acting in concert with our fellow men and women mindful of those higher purposes in order to aid the best side of Pluto's changes in our organizations. Forgive this virtual tyro's "preachiness" and rant.

All good wishes to you, Jude, and your readers.

Thanks, Anonymous, well-said! That's a great explanation of the current astro-weather affecting our societal condition as politicians and others use the weapon of plutonian-tinged fear against us. Agreed, that a best plan is to consult our higher natures to gain more positive perspectives than those which issue 24/7 from a cynical and corrupt Washington DC.

You know, if The Politician's eternal promise to "bring transparency back to Washington" (heard so often along US campaign trails) actually came to pass, we'd be running 99% of the varmints off to Sing Sing when the true depth of their perfidies and secret sell-out-America deals with the devil were 'transparently' revealed! Of course, it's a huge assumption that transparency in any government is ever possible given political man's pocket-lining tendencies, for example. Their true loyalties are certainly suspect, aren't they?

And we see how they've 'run' America in recent decades by Where We Are Now.

US natal Jupiter, planet of largess, expansion, religion, money, military generals, and bankers is at the root of many of our current problems due to mismanagement of Jupiterian abundance and egotism. Our national Jupiter possesses a telling Sabian Symbol from July 4, 1776: '6 Cancer' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests"...and they've been feathering them lucratively ever since.

Difference now is, these Utopian Usurpers want to steal everyone else's nests, too, and have just about done it which may be why I feel particularly and especially squawky today. How about you? jc

The Fed: "Return to Jekyll Island" w a Scorpio New Moon

In what may be considered by some a 'return to the scene of the crime', today and Saturday, members of the Federal Reserve Bank are again meeting on Jekyll Island, Georgia, where their shadowy entity, the private and central bank of America, was hatched in response (allegedly) to the bankers' Panic of 1907.

If the script sounds familiar since Financial Collapse 2007/2008, it should.

Here's something I wrote on the topic in February 2010 with a link to an article by astrologer Jessica Murray who shares many of my feelings about the Creature from Jekyll Island...the Fed.

Now their meeting is taking place under the rays of a New Moon 13Sco40 which conjoins the retrograde station degree of Venus (October 8, 2010) and with Venus' role in evaluations, she's proving important in financial considerations with the steps the Fed has taken this week to dabble in and tinker with the US economy.

Now Venus performs her station direct in 2 weeks (Nov 18) @ 27Lib40 and will leave her shadow (move past the degree of Rx station 13Sco13) the third week of December 2010 - just in time for Christmas but in tandem with the financially worrisome Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010 which seems to indicate market problems (crisis-turning point YOD directed toward the eclipse's 8th cusp when set for Washington DC; asteroid Midas and Pan nearby in 8th house; chart image included.)

Let's look at the Sun Scorpio-Moon Scorpio of the New Moon which signifies the Fed meeting today and tomorrow on Jekyll Island. A Water-Water blend can 'go with the flow' and is highly imaginative and intuitive; Scorpio is the sign of Big Business,
Finance, Secrets, and Transformation.

New Moons in Scorpio are about gathering all info and becoming an adept (as mentioned in my American Empire: When Jupiter Bowed to the Sun article in the just-released Fall 2010 issue of Eclipse magazine - the US had a Progressed New Moon in Scorpio in relation to the article's topic.)

Sun Sco-Moon Sco: astutely perceptive, intensely private, wary, and stubborn with uncompromisingly strong convictions. There is a jealous and sarcastic flavor, too, with relentless willpower and a crusading nature.

This double Scorpio combo is loathe to share its fears and tends to take itself too seriously; its cynicism can be limiting.

Sharing this blend in his natal chart is Dracula author Bram Stoker, whose words may apply to today's topic:

"Ah, sir, you dwellers in the city cannot enter into the feelings of the hunter."

(Since I'm typing from near Athens - up the road from Jekyll Island where we once frolicked on the beach as children - I guess that makes me a city dweller, of sorts. And I don't think highly of the power elite's style of financial vampirism.)

Now let's consider the Images for Integration for the Sun Sco-Moon Sco blend which infuses the darkened atmosphere of the New Moon 13Sco40 and the Fed meeting on Jekyll Island:

'A pile of manure slowly permeates the deeper soil as November rains soak the still, dark garden...A millionaire businessman establishes a foundation for medical research.'

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Seems to me that that's what the Fed and their colleagues have left the rest of us: a pile of manure.

America, SCOTUS, corporations, and the Saturn/Pluto square

Waking up in a snowy wonderland this morning I was relieved to find that our power was still on unlike millions of Americans still suffering under Snowpocalypse 2010. The sun's rays are now melting the pile-up but Georgia may have another winter storm system on the way soon, say TV's weather-alert pundits.

Electricity! This means that surfing about the cybersphere is possible, searching out excellent articles for you, lone reader. And look what I found: a Saturn/Pluto Square analysis by master mundane astrologer Jessica Murray in which she synthesizes the difficult energy of the Cardinal Square with the recent Supreme Court decision that has institutionalized the illusion that 'corporations are people too'. Ms. Murray also notes Pluto's current opposition to America's natal Jupiter (morals) as a sign of an amoral corporate plutocracy that has no reason whatsoever to identify with "America's proud First Amendment trip."

As Jessica Murray's article asserts, Monsters have been created, and The Creature from Jekyll Island lives and thrives at our expense while perfectly fulfilling one of the astrological descriptions of Pluto's identity as creature, monster, and non-humanoid.

Now you know G. Edward Griffin's 1994 book, The Creature from Jekyll Island but did you know that a second edition was published in 2009 which takes "A Second Look at the Federal Reserve"?

In 1910, this native Georgian is ashamed to say that (just miles from where I type) the lovely island of Jekyll (where we vacationed for years when I was growing up - little did I know, right?) was the scene for the Rockefeller-Morgan conclave of devils from which issued the formation of the so-called 'Federal' Reserve Bank made 'real' by Congress in Dec 1913. That their plutonic claw is behind the current financial crash, I have no doubt, even if you do.

That money is an illusion is something which the media's often-touted 'lack of confidence' mantra reveals, for if you believe in Tinkerbell, you'll clap your hands and pretend that our capitalist financial system is on the mend and worth saving.

Of course, total global financial collapse is what's supposed to induce us to accept whatever new system they enforce - their heart's desire is the limit and yet they have no hearts!

So do men and women have hearts, consciences, and allegiances? Most of us do, yes.

Do Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Chem, and Big Banks have these things? SCOTUS institutionalized the pretence that they do a mere few weeks ago. And Congress is playing along in collusion with the illusion just as they always do, and as the NWO monsters have planned for many years. Yes, these players wear various hats but all have 'NWO' stamped upon them with Dissolve America on the label.

But the Saturn/Pluto Cardinal Square is not playing at all. Corporations having the 'same status as individuals' is another brick stolen from the foundation of democracy. 'You know it, I know it, and the American people know it', to quote one of their formerly active shills, Bob Dole.

Yet if we indulge in depression over these things, the monster has an even more potent tool to use against us in this, the class warfare I've been grousing and blogging about since 2005. And at the risk of ruffling a feather or two, I think that the haves vs have-nots battle was pretty much okay with most Americans as long as their finances weren't on Pluto's chopping block.

Things do look a little different now, don't they?

Obama: Uranian change or Saturn's status quo?

With Barack Obama's natal Saturn (authority) in its sign of traditional Capricorn (politics, law, business) I've been wondering repeatedly whether Obama-as-president would bring us Uranian change or Saturnian status quo, despite campaign rhetoric.

And as both readers of this blog know, Saturn opposes Uranus on Nov 4, 2008...US Election Day, as the universe echoes the importance of this election and the world's future direction - As Above, So Below!

Of course, Saturn may operate as a slower agent for change - Uranian change is quicker and more revolutionary and startling (like the attacks of 9/11/01.) These last several years have been of the Saturnian variety of change once 9/11 was accomplished, and a long-time coming, too. We might ask Bush, Cheney, Rove, and the power elite about that.

So with Barack Obama's change slogan rattling in my brain, I turned to one of my favorite Political/Mundane Astrology writers, Jessica Murray, and found that she's on Obama's case with Stepping Outside the Bubble: The Election of 2008 where the Saturn-Uranus opposition, America's natal chart, campaign politics and propaganda, the 'lesser-of-two-evils' approach which we-the-people so often remark upon from the voting booth, Rovian tactics, the entrenched power elite, the Age of Aquarius vision, and other important issues are analyzed as only Ms. Murray can do.

Is Uranus stronger than Saturn for the US? Well, I agree with Jessica that government by-of-and-for the People IS Uranus incarnated. It is what makes We-The-People worthy of capitalization!

Perhaps 2008's grassroots organization of Americans will win the day for our beset nation whose power elite care not a fig for our hopes, wishes, livelihoods, or futures. Disregard what they say - it's what they do and have done that counts (see Wall Street bail-outs while family businesses and individuals sink. That this is a massive Take-Over is apparent and explains the queasy feeling most Americans are having...and should.)

Wall Street gentry (and the status quo government) may be seen as Saturn and the individual as Uranus, so the Saturn-Uranus opposition describes the current financial crisis as well...we vs them.

Massive grassroots organizing of the individual into a strong, power-wielding group (AQ) is the only way we'll come out of this important election time with measureable change for the better, and with government on our side again, if indeed it's possible at this late date.

And so I ask: which side are you on?

America and Astrology's Big Picture

Astrology may be used as a microscope to zero in on the details of a chart--or as a telescope for much wider views.

From Bush's use of the childish "bad guys" just after 9/11 to "Jupiter Gone Wrong" and "Partisanship as Red Herring" astrologer Jessica Murray presents an intriguing article in Maya del Mar's Daykeeper Journal about politics and social issues in America.

Jessica's article Holding the Big Picture is a do not miss if you haven't read it for she explains politicians' cynical use of the us vs them mentality and why it resonates so strongly in this country based on her interpretaion of America's natal chart (Sibly.)

Plus, her latest book Soul-Sick Nation: An Astrologer's View of America presents an indepth look at our nation's psyche, motivations, and direction--and is on my list of got to gets!
