US Progressions Oct 2011: Pluto inconjunct ASC

Spotlighting Our US Progressed Pluto/ASC Inconjunct

by Jude Cowell


Just some notes on the formed-by-secondary-progression inconjunct (150 degrees, aka, 'quincunx', an aspect of adjustment having potential health consequences) now formed in America's Secondary Progressions (SP.)

US Pluto 29Cap10 quincunxed US Sec ASC 28Leo10 for the first time (within a one-degree orb according to my Solar Fire software and using the 'Sibly' natal chart for the US: 5:10 pm LMT July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA; some variety in dates/times may be noted if using a different natal horoscope) on August 23, 2009 at 1:53 am edt, Philadelphia (natal location.)

Mars 28Gem25 was rising in DC at that moment (8.23.09) along with US natal Venus 3Can+. 'Twas an Hour of Venus @ 25Can56 conjoining US n Mercury Rx. A Sun/Mars sextile points to an 8th house NN in a YOD configuration which reveals our Pluto/ASC topic as a crisis-timer and supports the Node's critical 29th degree importance. 8th H involvement points to Big Business, Corporate Resources, Debt, Credit, and Transformations.

Also transiting at that time and place, we see that tr NN at 29Cap54 (in 8th H) is in process of conjoining US Sec Pluto and has recently met our natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx. Pluto/NN links are associated with 'meeting the powerful', 'karmic or fated encounters', and/or 'the common destiny of a large mass of people' (Ebertin.)

Now on one level, our nation's Sec Pluto/ASC inconjunct is notable for its critical-crisis 29th degree which is also the position of US Sec 6th cusp 29Cap+. This (Sec 6th H) implicates police, firefighting, and military services, plus, other martian occupations (transport, etc) and the health matters connected to them. US soldiers returning home come first to mind along with their medical conditions which may overwhelm the US health care system.

Oct 24, 2011: Today US Sec ASC is @ 29Leo55 (the orb will be out of range of the inconj with Pluto soon) which allows a Royal Fixed Star of Persia--Regulus--to rise by progression. Regulus' Keywords: success if revenge is avoided (Brady.) If revenge is not avoided, all the success gained may be taken away or negated in some manner. It's safe to say that, no matter who or what you believe is a root cause of the attacks of 9/11/01, America did not 'avoid revenge' and now has lost more than the American people are being honestly told, with more to lose.

And of course, Pluto often wears his Cape of Invisibility when lurking about the Halls of Power (I speak primarily of Washington DC halls) and favors pulling strings of control from his lair full of the world's riches that he's been laying aside for a brimstoned day. The criminal global syndicate is Pluto's favorite Underground playing field, unlevel and dangerous as the 99% of us find it to be.


Washington DC, Capitol Hill, and a Supernal Super-ness

Sec Pluto's Sabian Symbol if we round up to '30Cap' = "Directors of a Large Firm Meet in Secret Conference" and I suppose you've heard by now that on October 19, 2011, the Gang of Six met in secret conference with the Gang of Twelve, aka, the 'Super' Congress, or 'Super Committee' whose report on draconian deficit reductions is due by November 23, 2011 just in time for the Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37--a 'wild card' of the Universe as are all eclipses--and obviously affected by the Sag lunation which will bring an influx of energy (it's an eclipse near the North Node, the Jupiterian, joining end of The Cosmic Dragon.)

Guess they had to coordinate plans. Or something.

Speaking of the Cosmic Dragon (the Moon's Nodal Axis), our nation's Sec Pluto is near Sec South Node (Saturnian, separative) end of the Axis, with the NN @ 26Can47 Rx--conjunct US natal Mercury Rx. This emphasizes our nation's natal Mercury/Pluto opposition of surveillance, propaganda, persuasive oration, and nuclear dealings.

US natal Mercury '25Cancer' = "A Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power"--why, yes, I believe 'he' was in 1776. And still is.


But what of Pluto inconj ASC? Thought you'd never ask!

With ASC the WHAT? Point of any chart, let's consider US Sec ASC to be what as a nation the US has evolved into. The inconjunct from Pluto in Capricorn is the only planet aspecting our Sec ASC right now, just so ya know.

Pluto inconj ASC indicates conditions where others (plutonians, bankers, popes, priests, monarchists, shareholders, and mad men?) have some sort of hold over the US (ASC) and with the ASC in Leo ruled by the Sun, our leadership potential and 'shiny' traditional role in the world is being seriously circumvented, as you've noticed by recent events.

Employment conditions are an integral part of this picture and I have typed aloud previously that Republican-leaning corporate and other CEOs are purposefully not hiring in the US in order to help the GOP undermine the presidency of Barack Obama. This tallies with recent mentions in the news of such behavior along with the implications being floated (in the 2012 campaign already) that putting Republicans back in the White House will open the floodgates to jobs galore for US workers.

Bosh! So what explains US employment conditions during the power-elite-powered Bush-Cheney regime--why not then?

Anyway, whether you believe that fairytale or not, Pluto inconj ASC speaks of continuing threats to pensions and retirement funds, and of ideas which may be sound but lose legitimacy and attractiveness due to being forced upon others. And when our weaknesses are exposed, we smolder in bitterness (Pluto)--and perhaps allow more plutonian-style revenge to be perpetrated in our name (ASC.)

The US government's lock-out of WikiLeaks from donation processing (PayPal, Visa, MC, etc) springs to mind. Julian Assange said in London today that the organization must now focus on raising money or shut down by the end of 2011--they're looking for donations, if you're interested in supporting this independent if controversial news source.

Now here's a facet of our national Pluto/ASC inconj that I must personally admit to as a dissenting American--Pluto inconj ASC gives a tendency to hold strong opinions, and to unkind or stark expressions against those in authority who are unqualified--possibly through a lack of moral character--and who must have acquired their power in a dishonest way.

Hmm. This condition reminds me of the cagey GOP's 2011-2012 drive to disenfranchise US voters who may tend to vote Democratic--to the point of criminalizing voter registration in the United States of America--the bullies!

~:~

See caging (voter suppression), and Rolling Stone's The GOP War on Voting. Republicans, who'd rather crash Obama than improve the US economy--can only 'win' elections when most of the American people stay home from their voting booths.

Please don't stay home. Vote with your feet by showing up--even if all we're presented with is seems the lesser of two evils.

Events of August 23, 2009 and 2011

See Wikipedia's August 23 page and scroll down to 2011 where you'll see that it was a day of the Mineral, VA earthquake (from fracking?), and the day that Libyan dictator, Muomar Qaddafi, was overthrown, the ending drama of which we've recently seen with his death.

As for August 23, 2009, you may wish to try CNN's popular stories for that date when wildfires surrounded Athens, Greece--a city still in the news for its seemingly inevitable debt default. Two years later the question seems to be: will Greece's default be orderly or chaotic? And will its consequences spread like wildfire around the globe?

~:~

Astro-Note: for this reluctant astrologer, both 'SP' and 'Sec' = Secondary Progressions using the year-for-a-day method. Since I use Minor and Tertiary Progressions, too, I often use 'Sec' to distinguish between the three methods: Minors = mental-causal plane, Terts = intuitional-spiritual-emotional plane, and Secs = physical-evolutionary plane. Their interplay relates to the mind-body connection and the 1:13:27 ratio of consciousness. Strength and importance are lent to progressed configurations when a corresponding transit or transits are also involved in timely fashion such as with tr NN conj US Sec Pluto, as mentioned above. jc

The Fed, B of A, JP Morgan put US taxpayers on EU's hook

Are US Taxpayers EU Banks' Sugar Daddies?

by Jude Cowell

Don't spew your cereal but it has been revealed that our tricky old Federal Reserve Bank has put US taxpayers on the hook--in a word, responsible--for the financial fall out if European banks fail!

In the brew are two of our usual criminal suspects who got no regulatory approval for this scheme--Bank of America and J. P. Morgan. Meanwhile, the Fed and the FDIC are said to be tussling (my word) over whether the sneaky plan is "sound"!

Considering how much payback transnational bankers such as the House of Rothschild expect from America and her own debts, I can assure them that there is no 'soundness' involved but there is an abundant of injustice, fraud, and corruption.

And perhaps there is an agenda peeking out: to collapse the global economy for their own purposes of 'rebuilding anew upon ruins' (aka, a NWO, or 'one-world-government'.) The plutonians believe that we must be forced to see that nation-states simply cannot 'handle' the massive size of the world's problems--financial, environmental, social, and political--so, they think, we'll eventually plead for a new system of an illuminized design.

Through the decades they've set up a 'global economy' so it can be knocked down on their timetable--making a worldwide take-over possible. My hope is that the usual 'criminals are stupid' factor will gum up their 'Great Plan' before they do much more damage! Of course, normal people standing up to global banking corruption is an absolute must more than ever.

In Astrology, there is a descriptive midpoint picture to watch for in transits concerning this global take-over topic is:

*Saturn/Pluto = Uranus: brutal efforts to start a new order; an attack, regardless of potential losses. (Tyl.)

Well, click above to read The Daily Bail for there's no telling what anyone's total exposure is since Wall Street successfully lobbied during the passage of the watered-down Dodd-Frank bill so that there is no central exchange to keep track of net derivative exposure.

This massive scheme explains Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's recent hopping around Europe pleading with EU leaders to agree to bailout their own banks! Wonder why they have to be pleaded with? Germany's recalcitrance? The rich don't want to help out poorer nations?

Or...does the scheme also explain why EU leaders can't--or refuse to--come to a financial agreement? Let US taxpayers do it!

News flash for the EU: in America, we can barely pay our teachers, firefighters, and policemen. But of course, in America, banks are people, too.

Yes! I heard this morning that Libya's president-on-the-run Qaddafi was killed at dawn Thursday but have no time in today's schedule for more blogging. So I point you to the excellent coverage on this and other important topics at Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman.

*Of course, the US directly 'met' the cruel desires of the Saturn/Pluto pair when the two planets opposed one another on the morning of the 9/11/01 attacks, an event and a planetary signature that mark forever the illegal presidency of George W. Bush (may he be arrested in Canada soon for his torturing interests. Bill Clinton will be there, too--two birds with one stone?)

Tripoli falls! Libya's Saturn Return 8.22.11

Tripoli, Libya in Hands of the Revolutionaries! August 22, 2011

by Jude Cowell


Perhaps you heard that the capital of Libya, Tripoli, fell Saturday night (8.20.11), three of Gadhafi's sons are in custody, and the dictator's whereabouts are as yet unknown. Revolutionaries (Uranus in Aries!) are in process of taking over the capital though heavy fighting continues in many areas, reports Amy Goodman.

Journalist and scholar Juan Cole is providing updates and analysis on Libya, plus, Al Jazeera has videos and Live Blogs available.


Astrology of Libya and a Full Moon

Yes, transformative, destructuring Pluto in status quo Capricorn continues toppling government leaders in Mr. Organized Crime's long-time-coming kind of way. There's no going back once Pluto makes a change.

In February I published the natal horoscope of Libya with February 21, 2011 transits showing Libya in process of its Saturn (accountability; restriction; government) Return to natal degree and sign (in Libra, conjunct US natal Saturn!) along with its Jupiter Return.

Now it's six months later, and certain transits are still of influence so here is Libya's natal horoscope, if you wish a view.

You'll see that on February 21, Mars was @ 29AQ conjoining tr Neptune--see transits written around the outside of the chart which may be enlarged with a click. ('29AQ' = "A Butterfly Emerging from a Chrysalis.")

August 2011 Brings Mars to natal Uranus

But time and planets flee, so on Saturday night past, out-of-bounds (of the Earthly plane) Mars, now in Cancer (always a touchy sign placement for the activist and god of war, Mars whose OOBs condition can inspire unusual feats of courage and nerve) conjoined the country's natal Uranus, a revolutionary pairing indicating explosions, guns, and danger in the environment. Something out of character or out of teh ordinary is often perpetrated under this influence. Mars @ '12Can' = "A Chinese Woman Nursing a Baby with a Message"...how interesting that mention of China turns up in Libya's revolution and the fall of Tripoli, yes?

Also on Saturday evening (8.20.11), Mercury 20Leo55 conjoined natal Pluto, a time of gaining power and discovering information about financial and surveillance matters, and when investigation supplies valuable details about travel (Gadhafi absconds for a visit-by-exile with pal Hugo Chavez? Or perhaps he's secluded in a Saddam-inspired hidey hole!)

An August Full Moon Across the Self-Will Axis

The Full Moon (a stage of culmination and fulfillment) of Saturday August 13, 2011 was triggered by the August 20, 2011 Mercury in Leo which conjoined Libya's natal Pluto, and my suspicion is that much was revealed and concluded under the rays of the Aquarian Full Moon with its Sun in Leo shining upon Libya's natal Pluto, planet of power, wealth, and control. Apparently even the Universe decreed that it was time for Gadhafi to go and these pressures had to be released.

Now when the Sun conjoins n Pluto, ego takes center stage, and one's power is under scrutiny such as we heard with world leaders, including President Obama, calling for months that is was time for Gadhafi to go, leave, vamoose--which is just what a one-world-government take-over crew would say!

Yes, oil wheeler dealers of the One World Company persuasion are simply rabid to get their greedy mitts on that Libyan oil and you'll notice that today oil prices are mixed but down--see HuffPo's Oil Prices Drop As Libyan Rebels Capture Most of Country's Capital.

One quick transformation is that Tripoli's 'Green Square' (so named by Gadhafi) has been returned by the people to its original name, Martyrs Square, and there is some concern that faction fighting may cause people to turn upon one another. My hope is that this won't be the case yet Libya's 2nd house ($) line-up of planets (Saturn, Mars 16Lib26, Neptune 21:27, and Moon--the people, at a critical 29th degree (29:04)--are about to be restricted by transiting Saturn.

Here are the implications which I hope are not too dire for the Libyan people who deserve better breaks than they've received during the last 42 years:

Saturn to n Mars: lack of energy; physical complaints; circumventing rules, regulations, and authority is ill-advised; male relationships may be interrupted or broken off. Yet it's a time for a focus on organizing and directing frustrations into more constructive channels.

Saturn to n Neptune: the 'grim reality' transit which may also bring dreams (Neptune) into reality (Saturn), and inspire practical efforts for or from charitable organizations. (America recently experienced this transit and its effects linger.)

Saturn to n Moon: a sobering period when the people feel--or are-- deprived; worry and depression rise, and monetary resources become more sparse; desires may still be attainable but only if deserved; mothers and children may be forced to move residence.

If you're of a mind and belief system, join me in praying for the Libyan people!

Now there are other transits of note to the country's natal horoscope and I hope that if you can, you may keep tabs upon the exciting yet dangerous happenings in Libya which is now seemingly liberated from 42 years of dictatorship under Gadhafi.

And remember that your comments and opinions on-topic are very much welcomed here.

Kucinich: US actions in Libya "surreal" 6.24.11 (video)

Here's the video I mentioned earlier today of Rep. Dennis Kucinich speaking on the House floor this morning and calling the US misadventure in Libya "surreal," among other things.




Well, you know Mr. Kucinich is correct, don't you? And he doesn't mind calling a situation 'Orwellian' that really is Orwellian.

Wonder what happened to Mr. Kucinich's plan in 2008 to investigate those mysteriously executed and very lucrative "put options" which suggested insider trading involved in the attacks of 9/11?

House votes No to US military action in Libya 6.24.11

Have congress members found their backbones or are they worried about their fund-raising for the next election? Well, on C-SPAN I watched much of this morning's 'debate' on the House floor over action in Libya so this news nugget is of little surprise.

I hope the US drops this ill-timed, unaffordable, and immoral mission and that you too caught Dennis Kucinich's impassioned speeches this morning - his remarks are definitely worth finding if you can, and I shall search for a video of him for posting here asap:


NPR BREAKING NEWS: House Rejects Measure To Continue U.S Role In Libya

The House has voted down a measure giving President Obama the authority to continue the U.S. military action against Libya. More at NPR.


More on this and other topics is being broadcast as I type by the excellent Thom Hartmann. And the transiting South Node (SN) is nearing US natal Mars (military; god of war) closer and closer as you read these words - and we have a US Mars Return coming soon...

US Take-Over Libya Plan Made Years Ago (video)



Well, I remember that Wesley Clarke divulged hints of the neocon plan to take over Libya, a plan made years ago. And I'm glad to find a video of his remarks thanks to a Newsletter Alert received from the excellent Information Clearing House, one of our premiere independent news sources which can use our encouragement.

Shock Doctrine Politicians = America Going Nowhere

An Austere GOP Hearts the Ruining of America

by Jude Cowell

If you're anything like me, you're having some difficulty keeping current your Shock Doctrine Politicians scorecard, so you may benefit from a list with their names, birth data, and a few of their astrological details. And of course, the shock in 'Shock Doctrine' implicates the planet of disruption, upheaval, lightening, and chaos: Uranus.

The doctrine is doctrinaire Saturn now in an obsessive-compulsive (sound like any one-pointed GOPers you know?) aspect with revolutionary Uranus, an asepct known as a quindecile (165 degrees.) This is the 'disrupt governing systems, break rules through defiance of law and order, and feel driven to break old, outdated concepts through innovation' combo. (The Quindecile, Ricki Reeves.)

Excerpt from above linked article: Members of Congress are doing damage to the country with their pursuit of deficit reduction in the middle of the worst downturn in 70 years. This push for deficit reduction does harm to the economy and costs more jobs than 1,000 Bridges to Nowhere.

And USA Reality Check has the Twitter feed of Wisconsin's AFL-CIO, plus, economist Paul Krugman's recent article American Thought Police.

Then we have The 8 Worst Governors in America and the crazy-making, future-destroying way they're doing things with their self-imagined mandate. Making President Obama look bad has to be one of their basic motives so we may be lead to assume that if the GOP grabs the White House in 2012, the Republican (corporate) largesse will begin flowing like golden doubloons and the American people will soon have more jobs and paychecks than we can handle (puh! The Republicans are acting coldhearted toward our families and it's 'worth it' to them as long as Barack Obama "fails".)

Ah, George Orwell, the Prophet!

His birth during a Balsamic phase of the Moon (just prior to a New Moon and thus during the mystical darkness when things go bump in the night) supports what the GOP and its handmaiden the Tea Party are busy fulfilling before our very eyes: Orwell's vision of the world's social and political future of totalitarian control and austere, extreme deprivation for the masses with population decrease the expected and planned result.

But you know that some pigs are just more equal!

Aries New Moon Apr 3, 2011 w US natal Mars rising

The more I look at the chart factors in the horoscope of the April 3, 2011 New Moon at a critical/crisis degree, the more worrisome they appear. Sadly, the cure isn't to stop looking.

Well, as you know, the combination of Mars and Uranus is a permanent signature in the American natal chart and national psyche so we can't say we're not a warring bunch of varmints, can we? With Gemini the sign of multiplicity, America chooses and fights wars two or three at a time. Click to read more on these disturbing, protesting, incendiary energies which include America's natal Uranus and Mars in Gemini 'going angular' in the April 3 New Moon chart.

And transiting MIDAS conjoins US n Uranus as I type! Where there are wars there are war profiteers lurking behind the scenes for they seldom if ever put themselves in harm's way!

If I weren't under the weather this week, I'd go ahead and post the horoscope so you can view it. In lieu, here are the particulars for setting up the chart for yourself if you haven't already:

New Moon April 3, 2011 @ 10:32:16 am edt (says my Solar Fire software) Washington DC.

Now of course, one lunation chart can't 'do it all' but it can trigger other planetary and social factors. The recent entry into Aries - and crossing the World Point of Manifestation at Aries Point (00Ari00) - of quirky rebel and freedom- fighter Uranus is a major component of April's Mars/Uranus picture especially since the sign Aries - and now, transiting Uranus - are ruled by hotheaded, testosterone-driven Mars.

1927/28 and 2011

Yes, Uranus The Awakener is certainly busy this time around bringing strikes, protests, and stand-offs much as was the case when Uranus conjoined AP on March 31, 1927, November 4, 1927, and January 13, 1928. Combined with instigator Mars in 2011, powerfully explosive situations including the nuclear realm and more earthquakes are dire potentials.

Yet hopefully April won't bring more bad news concerning the nuclear meltdown in Japan, and I pray that the West's Libyan intrusion with its mildly named 'no-fly' zone will not take a wrong Martian-Uranian turn into chaos as well.

And I'm fairly certain you're with me on that.

~:~

Events of 1927 (ex: major earthquake in China), 1928 (major earthquake in Greece), and, for 2011, perhaps it's time for Japan to resort to the Chernobyl Solution.

~:~

Note: on President Obama's justification speech on Libya last evening, it amazes me that he can rail against Gaddafi's "exploitation" of the Libyan people's wealth and his poor treatment of them when we-the-people have been treated in similar disenfranchised fashion ourselves with more to come.

Where is Mr. Obama's outrage, staged or otherwise, on our behalf? jc

Obama speaks on Libya 3.28.11 w Mercury at loose ends

Horoscopes set for Monday night, March 28, 2011, on the occasion of President Obama addressing the nation about the US-NATO-Arab-Allies mission in Libya, don't look so much unpromising for the globalists' usual war propaganda purposes as they look...well, ignored by the general public. We have, after all, heard this sorry tune too many times before.

Under conditions which must certainly be obvious even to our bubble-wrapped White House and Capitol Hill denizens, the American people are wumped out and few there be who are interested in hearing about another overly expensive (aka, bottomless pit in the money department) war and possible occupation. Mission Accomplished so soon? We'll see if NATO operations fill the expansionists' bill for domination in the region and if one objective is to get the American people more acclimated to acting in accord with with NATO and eventually, the UN. (Less national sovereignty for us that way.)

Moon and South Node of the Moon

As you know, the Moon in a mundane chart represents the people or populace, the general public, and Democracy. Women, children, and family are particularly associated with the Moon whether in a radix (natal) horoscope or a mundane one (events, inaugurations, coronations, speeches, politicians, elections, etc - whatever has a beginning has an inception chart, even pitifully crooked politicians.)

The thing about this Monday evening at such an hour as the President might read his remarks on the topic (8 pm or 9 pm?), the Moon is in the 6 - 7 degree range of Aquarius which conjoins US natal South Node of the Moon, not the most auspicious marker for anything expecting publicity, or for a speech you want to be well-received by a fickle public.

Speak to Me Only with Thy Mercury

In warring Aries, Mercury (planet of young persons, orators, negotiators, planners, scribes, reporters, bloggers, traders, and jugglers, among a myriad of other things) makes no applying aspect to any planet in the chart/s at 8 pm or 9 pm edt in Washington DC, an indication that the speech may make little difference 'on the board'.

So though he's at loose ends planetarily, Mr. Speedy does apply to a lovely trine with the NN (and thus sextiles SN) so reporters will be listening (it's their jobs, plus, zealous ideologues must pay attention because they can't exist without Politics to promote their causes - perhaps if no one claps their hands, they'll all go pouf! and leave us be.) Hopefully, mercurial young people will be listening, too, or watching it later on YouTube for they tend most often to supply the Pentagon's war fodder, and their futures are intimately connected to the rhythm the White House plays when beating its drums of war.

So it seems in his speech that President Obama may be falling back on past (SN) emotional appeals (Moon) to our better natures (AQ) and of course we'll hear political talking points parroted on both sides in the news before Tuesday and for the rest of the week unless another topic knocks it off the ticker.

Well, the way things are going these days, that's pretty much a given, isn't it?

And since a disciplined GOP desperately craves the White House in 2012, we know that just after Mr. Obama completes his remarks the yapping will begin and spread into the week, revealing the gist or essence of the Libyan conflict's required government propaganda modulated to suit the public mood, and embroidered with all the subtle nuances big money can pay journalists and talking heads to spout as the week plows on and Japan's leaked radiation heads this way. Now there's a leak meant to be taken seriously yet it's more politically correct to downplay it.

Meanwhile, Mr. Obama prepares an oration for our edification and Politico's headline is President Obama faces a hard Libya sell so perhaps we may consider his speech's Moon/SN contact as: "exit strategy" (what we-the-people want to have and hear about, thanks), bad timing (coffers now empty - US tax payers can't afford to act as the world's police force anymore, we're all tapped out, cheers), more 'terrorism' propaganda (6/7 AQ = Moon = US n SN = Neptune's position at Islam's Founding), or simply that the public (Moon) has negative escapist behavior it wishes to resort to (SN) and would rather not be bothered on a Monday night to listen to...ugh, crafty Politics.

With SN (aka, Tail of the Dragon) having a Saturnian flavor of separation or loss, the Moon nearby can give a Moon/Saturn vibe which includes: separation from females, depression or melancholy, emotional inhibitions, or more positively, ambition, direction, strategy. (Tyl.)

Now you'll easily think of other connotations for Moon/SN and other chart factors in the President's speech horoscope for the evening of March 28, 2011, I know, so your opinions and remarks are being awaited momentarily.

How about: Moon/SN = talk to the hand...?

A Morgue's Secrets Leak & Pluto/Chiron's Plutocracy

Glenn Greenwald says that classified secrets have been leaked describing the tiresomely devious 'take bodies from the morgue and spread 'em around to finger the Americans' ploy.

Not certain I buy it but I'll keep my mind slightly creaked open for now. Of course, the well-timed leak could be reverse propaganda, kind of like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker being advised to hire a thug to accost or otherwise assault him (even better - with firearms) in order to make the workers' side come off more negatively in Wisconsin. Walker may not have seriously considered using a thug to harm him as if his political opponents (supposedly his constituents but he only wants to 'govern' the rich, it seems) had done so, but we see an alleged glimpse into how their minds work.

It takes the GOP and their backers in the global crime syndicate to think up an outrageous plan such as that.

Of course, some Republican backers also back various Democrats. That qualifies as a clue to the fact that what we now experience is long-running class warfare of the haves v the have-nots. That many Americans in the last decades have fallen willingly into a fluffy (Jupiter-Neptune) dream that prosperity was to be theirs for the duration (if they worked hard or had a brilliant idea or creation suitable for marketing) and that their children would do better in the world than they'd done, is not surprising really.

Because many forces and certain disciplines and intellects have been focused like lasers on just such a dreamy influence succeeding in manipulating the American public (and others) ever since Psychology was invented.

Okay, enough babbling. Let me know what you think about such topics if you have a mo and feel impelled, and I shall attempt to reply or add a remark if I have a mo, too.

~:~

Pluto/Chiron = plutocracy; disenfranchisement; primal violence; racism; agism, socialism/communism/bolshvikism, refugeeism and other -isms -- well, you get the exploitative picture. (That's wounded/wounding Chiron with Pluto of the morgue-ish realm. Sounds even worse when it's put like that.)

Keith Olbermann: Qs for the President on Libya

Reading other people's mail is usually wrong but not in this case:

Libya, Obama, and the Five-Second Rule Special Comment
By Keith Olbermann

Mr. President. We are not clear why we are fighting, who exactly we are fighting with, who the 'rebels' are that we're fighting for, what a No-Fly Zone accomplishes with a dictator who has ground troops, how long we are to be there, to whom we are to "hand-off" and... # (Click for text or video.)

And perhaps it's true that al Qaeda is in Libya...was Qaddafi's threat against his people merely al-Qaeda-backed theater to lure the US fly into the ointment? If so, did the White House know al Qaeda is nesting there? If not, why not?

Consider the following:



Libya Rebels: Gaddafi Could be Right About al-Qaeda - Two documents suggest northeast Libya, centre of rebellion, is an al-Qaeda hotspot

The war on Libya now being waged by the US, Britain and France must surely rank as one of the stupidest martial enterprises, smaller in scale to be sure, since Napoleon took it into his head to invade Russia in 1812.

After Citizens United, & Solar Eclipses 1993 = 2011

Perhaps you've seen the brilliant photo of the March 19, 2011 SuperMoon in Virgo rising above DC's Lincoln Memorial now posted on a new blog After Citizens United.

(Astro-Note: constellation Virgo and its stars have particular significance for the founding of America including the related archetype for nurturing asteroid Ceres ('security concerns') which in America's natal chart, conjoins our natal Pluto/Chiron midpoint @ '8Pis'...and Pluto/Chiron = Plutocracy and its attendant class warfare and disenfranchisement.)

Well, if you're interested in the January 2010 SCOTUS decision on Citizens United which upped the corporate anty on the power elite's campaign contributions for 2012 and beyond (US gov bought and sold = Plutocracy), I hope you'll check out After Citizens United which contains an image of the SCOTUS Ruling horoscope of January 21, 2010, and links to related topics.

My feeling is that these birty dastards have a huge jump on the citizens of the US so pass around all pertinent info you can find! Apathy is no longer an excuse so it's imperative that as many Americans as possible pay close attention to all class warfare matters which are seriously undermining our democracy, and that obviously includes Citizens United v FEC.

Included on the blog you'll also find an essay by Joan McCarter entitled "Money's Sustained Assault Against Democracy" so if you're fond of democracy in America (or wish we had some rather than exporting it across the globe bwo lies and guns), Ms. McCarter's article is highly recommended. And a tidbit of info from the Citizens United blog: SCOTUS will hold hearings on March 28, 2011 concerning Arizona's public financing system; other related suits are pending so we must keep up!

Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Libya

Now some are saying that President Obama didn't have the authority to act in Libya as we're doing under cover of a 'humanitarian mission' to protect civilians (there we go again: bombing = 'saving'. Yeah, right.) Presidential overreach and the military action in Libya are facets of the global elite's Undermine America Agenda in order to set up a one-world-government and we're watching the US government further extending its imperial self into the region of the Middle East. It remains to be seen whether our incursion into Libya can be handed off to foreign entities in a few days.

Of SuperMoons and Eclipses 1993 - 2011

The last SuperMoon occurred in March 1993 which is of time-link interest since the two Solar Eclipses (SE) of 1993 are repeating in 2011 with similar influences upon society.

May 21, 1993's SE @ '1 Gemini' is in the 13 South Series as will be the June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ '11 Gemini', a degree which falls between US natal Uranus 8:55 and US natal Desc '13Gem'...Uranus/ASC = Sun: friendships with leaders and important people; physical unrest; mobility; a restless colleague or partner; anxiety about putting one's best foot forward; hoping for success. Uran/ASC = Moon: getting excited through the influence of others; quick mood changes; emotionalism spills into view; needing support, sympathy, and approval (speaking of 'approval', Obama should've gotten that from Congress before he took us into Libya in what may be an extended piece of Hades - UN approval is not congressional approval - for a little while longer at least.)

From Brady's Predictive Astrology we find that the influences of 13S include: expansive energy under which lies a sinister flavor; striving for group endeavors, either positively or negatively; urge to expand brings frustrations, inhibitions, and loss or separation. And for Australia in 1975, 13S included a Constitutional Crisis (which may be brought to the White House circa 2011 due to Libya invasion or ___?___.)

The second Solar Eclipse of (November 13) 1993 @'22Sco' which repeats on November 25, 2011 @ '2Sag' is in the 14 North Series with vibes that include: draining of energy; an acute time of confusion in relationships, and unexpected happenings in financial matters; despair; a peculiar turn of events; too much confusion and delusion to make clear judgments (paraphrasing Brady, as above.)

In her book Eclipses, Celeste Teal titles the '11Gem' Jun 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse, "Something to Cry About" (though that's usually reserved for '00Gem' because it conjoins Fixed Star Alcyone, of the Seven Sisters.) She states that its nearness to US natal Uranus indicates surprising developments in government which may be dealing with a "lack of support"; falling in 8th house in DC, this eclipse heralds issues of taxation, mortality, burial concerns, sanitation, or contagion (radiation from Japan?).

Other possibilities for the June 1, 2011 SE are that trade agreements are strained in foreign relations, workers' strikes and protests continue, military controversies surface, and there may be an urgent health situation, hospital condition, or prison crisis to deal with. Plus, a particularly mysterious crime/s may be in the news (bio-weapons expert John P. Wheeler? Someone new?)

Teal's title for the 14N SE of Nov 25, 2011 is: "Blazing New Trails" - yet workers will still be discontent, there are concerns over secret enemies, and there's an "extension of power of nation in the world, although some complications to overcome." Is Libya only the US government's first 'no-fly-zone' justification?

Well, on that New World Order note I must leave you for my pesky old day job and a sincere hope that we'll reconnect another day while remembering what Herbert Hoover said on such topics: that old men make wars and young men fight them. How correct he was.

Now if only we could get the world's young men and women to turn their backs on war.

Vulcans to Libya, a SuperMoon, & Iraq War's Solar Return March 2011

NPR BREAKING NEWS: Allied Aircraft Flying Over Libya


French President Nicolas Sarkozy has confirmed that coalition planes are in the air above Libya. "Our air force will oppose any aggression by Col. Gadhafi against the population of Benghazi," he announced in Paris.

Astro-Note: the Iraq War's Solar Return 2011 occurs March 20, 2011 at 4:55:59 am BAT -3:00 Baghdad, Iraq; ASC 1Pis17 w the Neptune 29AQ30/Chiron 2Pis37 duo rising; Hour Mars 19Pis44 in 1st house and out-of-bounds and precariously motivated in Pisces. Transiting Neptune at a critical 29th degree approaches Iraq War's natal 12th H Uranus 00Pis30 (planet of rebellion and radicalism), a time when there are unrealistic expectations about societal changes, social breakdowns, and ideals and spiritual goals that conflict with current financial and technological conditions: as before, precarious.

Tr Pluto 7Cap24 has now crossed the war's natal Midheaven (The Goal; The WHY? Point) and nears the Piscean Mars 9Cap11. Thus, a midpoint picture forms at the very top of the radix chart: Mars/MC = tr Pluto: extraordinary zeal and tremendous vigor; the desire to bring immense tasks to a successful conclusion. (Ebertin.)

That would be a long-desired goal yet there are many portents in the natal and Solar Return 2011 charts which I won't bore you with on this SuperMoon day. But when tr Saturn, now @ 15Lib01 Rx, reaches Iraq War's natal 7th H Moon 23Lib06 (the people),
a valley of depressed feelings and despairing emotions will be experienced as staged and engineered by a spidery global network of warhawks, Vulcans, arms dealers, and other profiteers.

The Vulcans Are Forging Their War Tools Again

Disturbingly, the Iraq War's Solar Return chart for March 20, 2011 - it's 8th anniversary so the 9th year now begins - shows tr Hidalgo (power; expecting obedience) and Lilith (an archetype associated with the Middle East, especially with Israel; also, spies, surveillance, & potential betrayal) are at SR Midheaven (MC 12Sag10 = US natal ASC) of the horoscope which signifies a tag team effort possessing superior forces to bring down the government of Libya....another "coalition" which has been approved by the UN Security Council for enforcement of control in Libya as our Western Imperial March across the region continues with oil and gas (SR Neptune and Chiron rising) the main issue to be dealt with.

Now which entity on the world political stage do you think the Iraq War's SR 2011 Hidalgo in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius represents?


SuperMoon in Virgo March 19, 2011

Today is March 19, 2011, day of a SuperMoon, a lunar phenomenon which tends to herald disaster or catastrophe. Starting another war, this time in Libya, is one form of disaster begun by men who sit far away from the melee lest their pretty minds be stained or unduly ruffled. Yet all Full Moons and today's SuperMoon in late Virgo indicate the culmination and fulfillment stage of seeds planted at the New Moon of March 4, 2011 @ '14Pis' = "A Lady in Fox Fur." (We note how often we hear Hillary Clinton's name in the news of late.)

Then on a more personal, inner level which addresses our deepest concerns, my friend Julie Demboski has published a column on the SuperMoon that is not to be missed. The Full Moon of March 19, 2011: Birthing Uranus in Aries contains Lunar food for Mercurial thought with Uranian insights for all who care to listen. Thanks, Julie!

UN okays No-Fly Zone for Libya, UN horoscope activated 3.18.11

Here is Resolution 1973 (2011) in a form meant for public consumption (not the official version, it says) which was voted on Thursday after a closed door meeting. Click for more details on the 'No Fly' resolution.

You may wish to view the United Nations' natal horoscope here. Progressing this chart to 3.17.11 gives a SP Sun 7Cap13 with transiting Pluto 7Cap23 coming to call with power ascendancy and control issues on tap.

The UN's SP Mc/Ic axis is at critical-crisis degrees (17Pis/Vir) with the Virgo Ic stimulated by the last Great Conjunction of revolutionary combo Uranus and Pluto @ sensitized '17Vir' (mid-1960s); SP Sun conjoins Sec Venus at crisis degree 29Sag01; SP Mercury 15Sag16 ('16Sag' = "Sea Gulls Watching a Ship" with Libya being the ship of opportunity) opposes SP Uranus 14Gem33 Rx, an aspect that tends to assume that its opinions and ideas are the only ones that are valid - the 'know it all' aspect of tactlessness which tends to cause resentment in others. SP Sun, Mercury, and Venus are in Sec 6th house of Military/Police Service, Work, and Health.

Obviously, the bombing and other actions that are about to take place in Libya are alleged to be for the purposes of 'rescuing' civilians and stopping Qaddafi from killing more of his own people but will cause the cold hearted Orwellian-labeled 'collateral damage' simultaneously.

UN's SP ASC 7Can51 brings up the US natal trio of Venus, Jupiter, and Sun in Cancer even though the US role is being semi-veiled for now for typically political and strategic reasons though protecting sea lanes is understandably part of our nation's motivation.

UN's SP Moon 9Sco37 is ruled by warring Mars (sub-ruled on a higher octave by saboteur Pluto) and it's an Hour of Mars in the UN's Secondary Progressed chart (UN was 'born' during a Mars Hour, natal chart data is listed below; UN n Mars conjoins Saturn in Cancer, a 'destructive energy' combination, says Ebertin.)

UN's SP Mars is Rx by progression at a critical-crisis degree: 29Can11; '30Can' = "A Daughter of the American Revolution."

Tr Uranus 00Ari20 (AP) has brought the world much strife and disaster of late and this operation will be part of that strife though I certainly hope it ultimately will do the beleaguered people of Libya much good - yet we know that the world still groans under the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto yoke: harm through force majeure.

At the time of the UN Security Council vote on Thursday, asteroid Circe (keywords: where we seek rescue) conjoined the New Moon of March 4, 2011 @ '14Pis' = "A Woman in Fox Fur" and March 19, 2011 brings its book end Full Moon as previously noted. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to be fulfilling this role for the US.

Apparently there may begin a new war for this weekend, if not before, a sad portent for the celebration of Purim which begins at sundown on March 19, 2011.

United Nations natal data: October 24, 1945 4:45 pm est Capitol Hill Washington DC from public record; natal ASC 20Ari06 conjoins US natal Chiron, the Sacred Warrior archetype; '21Ari' = "A Pugilist Entering the Ring"; natal Mc (The Goal) 11Cap11 where transiting Pluto now approaches.

SP = Secondary Progressions based on the day-for-a-year principle of the Sun's daily motion.

Prison Planet News & Discussion March 2011 (videos)

It's Video Monday here at Stars Over Washington.

First, the Sunday Edition (3.6.11) of the Alex Jones Show with PrisonPlanet editor, webmaster, and journalist Paul Joseph Watson sitting in for Alex with discussion of the latest breaking news.



And here's a video I missed from February 26, 2011 where "humanitarian cover" for invading Libya is outed as "threadbare"...my fear confirmed of another imperialist US war?

Grandstand in Libya: jets open fire on protesters

Quick Update: Two Libyan Pilots Defect, Say Ordered to Fire on Protesters. My personal bravo! to them for retaining their consciences. And I notice that they flew to Malta to do it.

Original post from earlier today begins here:

If so, this is very bad news: Libyan jets open fire on protesters as Gaddafi & Son make a grand stand of doom against their own people whom they obviously consider to be 'expendable'.

And why? To grasp the reins of power more tightly within their reptilian claws.

You know from Lord Acton that "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Just look at America...

...going around the globe corrupting the leaders of every nation into doing the bidding of a totalitarian new world order.

I am ashamed of my government. With my Pisces Moon to soak up collective moods and influences, I have become a *Disappointed and Disillusioned Woman. Yet I know that no defeat on this Earth is final until our Creator says it's final! In that mission the usurpers have already failed.

For He Is Risen!


*The Sabian Symbol for 21AQ...CLEARANCE: pos: the self's inherent gift for pressing on and gaining increased powers with every setback; neg/shadow side: the acceptance of all defeat as final. (Jones.)

Nope!

Horoscope: Libya (w Feb 21, 2011 transits)

See CNN's timeline of the unrest in Libya, and here is this morning's coverage on NPR - have a listen if you missed it.

Last I heard (on Democracy Now!), over 300 Libyans have been killed in the last few days. Wonder how many are in prison as I type? Sad to say, perhaps not as many as in the US literally and by ratio. We've become a prison nation in the US, make no mistake. The neocon right wing cabal are in process of kicking us out of our own country, economically and every other way there is - then it's on to rule the world!

Well, since my ancestors 'settled' the place (and some were here to welcome early settlers) about as much as the next American, I fail to see why the United States of America suddenly pretends to have no responsibility toward her own citizens. Yet I speak primarily for those who suffer since my government doesn't bother with them much. Income taxes will go up for the working poor in 2011, btw. Not so brilliant, that. Regressive. And it's immoral to kick someone when he's down, imho.

Now when I say, the Underdogs of society, I mean the oppressed and disenfranchised sprinkled among us. Whether it's loss of a family home, pensioners robbed by Wall Street tycoons, those who've been secretly ripped off by greedy inside traders behaving like Enron energy-diverters (all gangs of thieves, like the Mafia), and other criminal elements within the environment and the environs of Washington DC, NYC, and Chicago. (But let's not talk about a Southwest being purposefully overrun by Mexican and other drug and sex trade criminals; one engineered result: weakening of a US border for easier eventual assimilation into a planned North American Union of Mexico, Canada, and the US.

Yes, the power elite may think the formation of an NAU is a cinch, yet the EU has cracks a mile long and fissures from financial fixations galore.

For just as in the US, the rich (and the monarchic) classes of Europe are fearful of being forced to 'pay' for the Underdogs' bowl of chow and of having to provide a pillow upon which the Fidos of the world may rest their weary heads (a case of attempted population control.) That wealth is now concentrated within 1% of the global population is the world's big trouble, not pensions and Social Security benefits being paid to people who will infuse the funds into local economies and make a real difference in our plight.

Eternal October Surprise!

Obviously, the GOP's laughable Trickle Down method of Economics doesn't work and the societal misery this has caused since the Reagan era is why President Obama's surrender to the GOP on extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich was unconscionable (and daft, if you're actually concerned about our nation's budget, economy, and our international credit rating.)

Yet anyone who knows the true identities of the shadowy string-pullers of the global crime syndicate or cabal (aka, the power elite) also knows that you cross them at your peril. Bribery and blackmail are their favored tactics to enforce compliance with their strong-armed script and to assure their victims must focus upon achievement of their group aims. Election-stealing is a given with this crowd. And yes, murder may be necessary.

So! On that unhappy note, let's switch gears and take a look at the 1951 natal horoscope of Libya with her society now in turmoil. My prayers are being sent out on behalf of the safety of the Libyan people: may your Guardian Angels draw near and guide you to your highest good.



Chart shown: Independence of Libya December 24, 1951 00:00 am CEDT (historical record); Hour Moon 29Lib04 in 2nd house in critical 29th degree; Sun 1Cap16 w Chiron 4Cap27 in 4th H; Mercury 16Sag59 Rx conjoins Ic 16:01.

Chart ruler/Midheaven ruler Mercury applies to a sextile w Mars (0A32) and a sextile w Saturn (2A53); Saturn-Pluto = Asc: assessing how to work with those who have power and influence; an environment that gives the impression of silent power or continuing influence; placed in cumbersome and difficult circumstances; separation; bereavement.

Marked on the horoscope, upper right, I've added an interesting double transit: tr NN (the public; encounters) to natal Sun (leadership), and tr Sun to natal NN; Sun/NN = 'the will of the leadership as expressed in speeches (ex: last evening's); creating bureaucratic structures; allies or associates who send added help or inspiration (an astro-peep-eye to Washington on Presidents Day 2011?); political associations that eventually do more harm than good; a loss of respect due to unfortunate treaties, alliances, or mergers. (Sun/NN: Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, Munkasey; any, all, or none may apply.)

Over the weekend, some protesters in Morocco have chanted against America and their government's willing collaboration with the US in its sloganistic "war of terror" which is meant as cover to justify all actions taken by the American Empire. I sadly imagine that the same sentiment exists in Libya and elsewhere across the region. They know it's about oil, other natural resources, ancient treasures, and the extension of US (NWO) power and domination over the globe. Why don't we?

Outside the chart highlighted in green are approximate positions of transits for today, Feb 21, 2011; you see Libya is in process of having a Saturn Return (as is America 14:48 - accountability has landed, if ignored things will only be worse later) and has just had its Jupiter Return on Feb 17, 2011. Jupiter in Aries can be hotheaded yet entrepreneurial; an opposition between the societal planets Jupiter and Saturn throws 'fear of failure' into the spotlight as Jupiter's expansion principle and Saturn's restriction function duke it out.

As the fever for democracy and fatigue with tyrants continues to spread across the Middle East (over the weekend, Morocco), Gaddafi's tough-talking son addressed the nation of Libya last evening promising to fight until "the last man, the last woman, the last bullet" - quite a bullheaded and stupid threat.

It Does Seem Another Regime Is Over...

With the nation's royal Jupiter in Mars-ruled Aries, the Libyan army must be vast in number yet a miscalculation may occur here as it did in Egypt so recently: many if not most of the soldiers in the Libyan armed forces are related to the protesters on the streets, share their grievances, and therefore, may not respond as forcefully as Gaddafi & Son command, if at all. (Gaddafi may have high-tailed it away already!)

The end of 1951 was a time when tr Uranus (freedom; independence; rebellion) approached a square (obstacle; blockages) with idealistic, dreamy Neptune in Libra indicating generational energies which are in constant conflict without knowing quite why (freedom-progress-hyper-awareness v dreams-ideals-illusions); rejecting social obligations under this square leads to the corrosive effects of political subversion and loss of support for the government.

The Uran/Nep square also implies that unconscious consent is given to living under leaders with an insatiable lust for power and who consider the people 'expendable'. Yet there is dynamic energy within the square (90 degr) which aids the populace to challenge those who abuse power with righteous demands that they be held accountable.

Future aims will be weakened or eroded if a laissez-faire attitude toward abusive government continues but the good people of Libya have seen the error of their past ways and are now in touch with their potentials for power and courage.

We may also see the current turmoil reflected in the nation's natal Mars-Saturn conjunction in fair-minded Libra (Air = mental energy.) Mars-Saturn is a frustrating, pent-up aspect for person or nation to have indicating hot-cold, stop-go issues (the UN natal chart has one, too.) In politics the planetary pair relates to military actions under political restrictions, an 'obligation' to use force when restraint is required, and enforcement of honor through the use of strife or struggle. (Munkasey.)

And the Mars-Neptune conjunction shows confused or deceptive motivations and misdirected energy and goals...and/or, inspired or sacrificial actions!

Some of the stimulating astrological reasons that Libya has caught the uprising epidemic at this particular time may be described by the fact that every time the nation has a Saturn Return (28-year cycle) as it has now, it involves a Saturn to n Mars transit bringing a general lack of energy, vulnerability, and complaints; organization and focus are needed as relationships are challenged or broken off altogether. Plus, a Saturn Returns brings Lessons of Accountability to the agenda with possible losses accruing - and apparently Gaddafi & Son are failing the course.

Then the Jupiter Return (12-year cycle) now repeats the natal promise of Libya's Jupiter-Saturn opposition; this is a Jupiter opposite n Saturn transit which brings a time when rules, regulations, and laws are in direct conflict with freedom so this blocks progress, success, and happiness - yet it's usually a period when it's best to hold on to what you've got, for the time being. If that's possible.

As you see in the chart, the hard, cruel Saturn-Pluto midpoint sits upon Libya's natal Ascendant 17Vir05, the position of the Great Conjunction/s of the duo of revolution, chaos, and old orders collapsing, Uranus and Pluto, in 1965/66 when their current cycle began. This indicates that the Uranus-Pluto square now moving into aspect with tr Uranus soon in Aries (and approaching Libya's natal Jupiter = taking a new and independent path!) is about to square power-wielding Pluto in governmental, controlling Capricorn which for Libya stimulates the sensitizing 1965/66 conjunction upon its natal ASC.

1965/66's Uranus-Pluto = n ASC: placed in unusual or restless circumstances; applications of force; accidents.

So with the closing square in any cycle being the 'crisis in consciousness' phase (echoing Libya's natal phase between Sun and Moon - as listed on the chart, click to enlarge), I believe the consciousness of the Libyan people has awakened to act upon and challenge the conditions set up in 1951 by the applying Uranus-Neptune square, as mentioned above, and by the effects of the cycle of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction which has permanently stimulated the national Ascendant (the country itself.)

(The planets' positions during the September 1969 coup that placed Colonel Gaddafi in charge of Libya are undoubtedly under stress, too. I mean, a rule of over forty-one years, people! And with a nepotic sprout waiting in the wings.)

Well, Bush, Cheney, their neocon/Zionist pals, and the rest of the global elite are getting what they allegedly want as the people's demands for democracy ignite the Middle East. Of course, based on the past actions of Washington and the Pentagon, I assume they prefer to keep things their way: with puppet leaders controlled by America still in charge.

But you know what they say about Best Laid Plans...

Astro-Note: the world's annoying global chaos-creators are projecting their own adolescent needs for radical change - even if it means chaos - onto the rest of us in the external world, recognizing the potential and intense energy within certain planetary combinations and putting these energies to use in a commanding way to invent the future (Uranus-Chiron.)

This dynamic was born out to me yesterday while watching Alex Gibney's Casino Jack and the United States of Money
which shows the College Republican upstarts such as a very young Karl Rove, grimy Grover Norquist, and soon, Jack rain man Abramoff joining in the throng with politician Tom Delay, then the steel-hammer-wielding Godfather, formerly of Capitol Hill. Abramoff inspired them to greater depths with his Mafia-esque flair and dark connections.

Also, I again send out my support to all Pro-Union protesters in their fight to keep the right of 1 comment:
