Trump Trial May 28, 2024

The Criminal Trump Trial for Election Interference: Rebellion

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

Horoscope: Tuesday May 28, 2024 9:30 am edt Manhattan, NY; Judge Merchan presiding:

As you see in the above chart, 1Leo04 rises which brings up Trump's natal 12th house cusp of incarceration; behind-the-scenes (as in, house arrest?). Or am I only dreaming that this lifelong criminal and sexual predator will finally be taken off the streets, if only for a short while? But of course, this also brings up his lethal midpoint picture: Pluto = Mars-Saturn.

Well, no matter how legalities proceed, according to the planetary configurations shown above, we can potentially expect "rebellion, upheaval, and challenges leading to a fight" via warrior planet Mars (his appeal of the case? and/or physical unrest?). Then the Moon-Pluto conjunction suggests zeal and upheaval by intense people. This pairing could also relate to the people feeling emotionally overwhelmed by the verdict when it comes, and the rage that is certain to follow a conviction.

Meanwhile, check out the Moon's and Sun's Sabian Symbols which are penned on the chart. And notably, chart-ruler Sun makes no applying Ptolemaic aspects so its sign, degree, and house are emphasized.

Devin Nunes outed for his Russian ties

Official portrait: Devin Nunes in happier days

Are Dark Deeds Ever Really Hidden?

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

When astro-notes concerning Republican Devin Nunes were published here in 2018, the fact of his involvement with the Russian propaganda campaign on Trump's behalf was suspected by some folks such as myself. Well today, Lev Parnas testified in a "Maga" House hearing revealing the complicity of Senator Ron Johnson - and former Representive Devin Nunes as Russian agents.

Once again, getting "dirt" on Joe Biden in order to "smear" his reputation and character just isn't working out as planned for Trumpist Republicans in Congress, most likely because there isn't any. Besides, who in US politics could possibly compare with arch villain Trump's level of skullduggery and disloyalty? Why, Donald is known as agent orange in some quarters!

Devin Nunes Center Stage: Peep-Eye!

Below is the Russian operative's natal data along with a few of the current planetary contacts that stand out in my estimation, although you certainly may discover more:

Devin Nunes October 1, 1973 7:07 am pdt Tulare, California; RR: AA; Moon @7Sag13 conjunct Neptune; ASC 10Lib23 where the 8 South Eclipse will land on October 2, 2024 with its themes of "loss, separation, sad partings"; possible "overstrain and/or physical injury" (B. Brady). Therefore, caution is advised!

However, the most current wild card of the Universe has to be the May 25, 2024 Lunar Eclipse @5Libra for it casts its revealing spotlight upon Mr. Nunes' natal Pluto (4Lib26) and brings his natal Sun (8Lib15) into the picture with the Sun-Pluto pair known for craving power and control. You'll remember that Trump's natal 2nd house Neptune will be lit up like a pinball machine by this Lunar Eclipse on Monday. And apparently the natal Pluto of Devin Nunes along with it. Interesting how their Neptune-Pluto connection showcases the organized crime duo of Neptune-Pluto.

Then there's Nunes' natal Chiron @19Ari05 which reveals that his Chiron Return is actually a five-fer. The first Return occurred June 7, 2023, the second on September 7, 2023, and the third conjunction soon occurs on April 3, 2024; this is his closest return to the visionary 8 North Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024 @19Ari24 conjunct transit Chiron (also @19Ari24) which basically is his Chiron Return #3 of 5 - so his Chiron is eclipsed.

Adding complexity to his April Chiron Return will be a Moon-Pluto Conjunction @1AQ+ which conjuncts his natal Jupiter @2AQ18. This could possibly bring him some luck, or at least it may suggest a way out of an uncomfortable situation. Or not. Instead, it could indicate a cosmic light shone upon certain financial issues (Jupiter), a secret child or an affair, and/or involvement with violent actions such as the J6 coup attempt. Either way, deep emotions are certain to be expressed to and/or by him. Having a Chiron-Uranus opposition, facing deep emotions realistically is not one of his skills, nor is honoring the ideals of others with whom he disagrees.

Then the fourth conjunction of Chiron-to-his-Chiron perfects on December 15, 2024, with his final Chiron Return coming on January 12, 2025. Whew! Quite an extended period of time, so it seems that Mr. Nunes has multiple lessons to learn from his natal Chiron in Aries, restless maverick with a yen for power that he is.

So! These are the soon-coming planetary contacts I see for Mr. Devin Nunes. What fall-out will occur from today's hearing on Capitol Hill and the testimony of Lev Parnas remains to be seen and I'm certain political pundits will inform us. That is, unless Republicans somehow manage to cover it up or spin it to their satisfaction with an election coming up.

Besides, one ace up their anti-American sleeves is that everyone knows how short the memories of US voters can be.

But hold on: because Crooks and Liars has this: Lev Parnas' Testimony Blows the Biden Impeachment Out of the Water!

When Pluto Conjuncts US South Node

7 Aquarius: "A Child Born Of An Eggshell"

by Jude Cowell

The following horoscopes and post belong in Stars Over Washington's "forearmed is forewarned" category. As such, it may not be suitable for every reader so please monitor yourselves.

Below is a bi-wheel of charts set for Washington DC:

March 18, 2027 with transit Pluto @6AQ35 conjunct US 1776 South Node (1st such conjunction since April 6, 1781) in center surrounded by November 16, 2028, the 5th of 5 conjunctions from transit Pluto to US 1776 South Node (the 1st since December 8, 1782). The July 4, 1776 Horoscope 5:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA is used for this post with our 1776 South Node @6AQ35 in 2nd house although other US charts may be preferred and will provide similar results and dates. As you see, there are two time periods involved approximately 246 years apart because with Pluto it's karma a long time coming.

Hopefully you can see my notes penned on the image, for there's an intense Moon-Pluto signature along with the Pluto-SN implications (similar to the harsh Pluto-Saturn duo), plus, the fifth and final conjunction in November 2028 occurs as a New Moon @25Scorpio43/55 is beginning to wane:

Also significant is the fact that, between the two dates and cosmic events you see pictured above, a 12 North Solar Eclipse will manifest on January 26, 2028 @6AQ11:01 at 10:12:28 am est Washington DC - conjunct transit Pluto (eclipse chart not shown) and conjunct US South Node suggesting past events involving power and the collective. On a positive level Pluto conjunct Eclipse indicates a powerful, charismatic leader. Negatively it suggests such things as gang wars, rape, and other criminal offences (R. Lineman).

But as we know, such is creepy Pluto of the Criminal Underworld: organized crime, debauchery, and yes--the papacy. Obviously, America will continue to need a strong leader who will fight against the global criminal network/s (as we need now), someone who understands that this is what it will take to vanquish saboteurs, traitors, and other bad faith actors.

Now here are the dates when slow-moving Pluto did, and will, conjunct US South Node; for both time periods it's 5x each, all @6AQ35:

1. April 6, 1781

2. June 7, 1781

3. February 1, 1782

4. August 28, 1782

5. December 8, 1782


1. March 18, 2027 (shown above)

2. June 30, 2027

3. January 21, 2028

4. September 19, 2028

5. November 16, 2028 (shown above).

Further clues may be found by sleuthing into events and conditions during 1781 and 1782, years of the American Revolution, and since we know that history has a habit of rhyming rather than repeating, we'll have opportunities to better deal with Pluto-SN conditions, events, and the people who instigate them so that the positive "powerful, charismatic leader" can be the primary outcome and this will make all the difference.

No, things won't be easy over the next few years but we can manage. Because after all, forewarned is forearmed - so, dear reader, do America a solid and pass this example of measured optimism around!

Moon-Pluto: Raw Russian Intel gone with Trump

Trump's Theft and President Biden's Early Oath-Taking

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

On January 20, 2021, in the final chaotic minutes of the Trump White House, chief of staff Mark Meadows rushed to the DOJ to "hand-deliver a redacted copy" (of the "binder" of raw Russian intel) "for a last review"."

Is this why Joe Biden took the 2021 Oath of Office at 11:15 am instead of the traditional noon hour? (Horoscope shown, below.)

Well, so far, the most comprehensive details concerning the missing intelligence "binder" (stack) of raw Russian intelligence that I've found is The mystery of the missing binder: How a collection of raw Russian intelligence disappeared under Trump, a joint reporting effort by CNN.

Now there are multiple horoscopes involved with this intelligence failure and if a mere post could be an e-book, I'd publish them and we'd discuss at length. However, briefness is a virtue in the blogging sphere so let's consider a previously discussed post from way back in 2015 because I figured it would be a big deal in the world of secrets and Trump collusion with Russia, Horoscope of the RNC Full Moon Conjunct US 1776 Pluto. This Full Moon in July 2016 became exact during the RNC, and cast a lunar spotlight upon, not just America's Pluto (27Cap33), but upon our national Mercury-Pluto opposition of surveillance and secrets, those withheld, leaked, and shared by and against our intelligence agencies. After all, knowledge is power, as 'they' always say, and our Mercury-oppo-Pluto wants total control of it all.

So here's a newer version of the RNC 2016 Full Moon Horoscope snugged as a transit chart around America's Powell Horoscope ("first vote," as championed by historian-astrologer Gary Lorentzen), showing that, among other cosmic factors, this now-revealed - though still mysterious - intelligence theft by Trump, aka, agent orange - is very much a Moon-Pluto affair:

Curiously, the planet of chaos, rebellion, and assault, radical reactionary Uranus, conjuncts the IC (Foundation) of the July 2016 Full Moon Horoscope with an intriguing Sabian Symbol word picture: "A Double Promise Reveals Its inner and Outer Meaning." My suspicion is that the disappearing binder of secrets revelation of December 2023 is one clump of secrets now in process of being revealed.

Meanwhile, below is another bi-wheel of horoscopes which might interest a reader or two since the above "final chaotic minutes" of the Trump White House on Inauguration Day 2021 could have been a factor in why Joe Biden actually took the Oath of Office a few minutes prior to the usual noon time especially since Trump's term didn't officially end until noon. Perhaps the Biden team thought there could be legal or practical reasons why an early Oath-Taking was a good idea. We may never know, but here's the bi-wheel where we find Inaugural Venus @15Cap04 conjunct Inaugural Midheaven ('MC") and conjunct RNC 2016 Pluto, a transit suggesting that Joe Biden took control of the situation; a few other contacts are notated as well:

Edit 12/16/23: Note that 11:47 am est is the time of Joe Biden's Oath of Office; 11:15 am shown here is the VP Oath of Kamala Harris; even so, Venus remains @15Capricorn+ conjunct our 1776 Pluto! jc

On a related topic, here's this from 2018: Homeland Security to Compile Database of Journalists, Bloggers with the "sentiment" of coverage noted. Well, fussy as some of my posts may be, my own "sentiment of coverage" always leans toward democracy and the common good, and are my small way of paying tribute to Revolutionary War ancestors who sacrificed, fought, and died to help establish our nation! And I firmly believe that allowing fascism in America was no part of their sentiments.

Horoscope: Trump Indicted in Manhattan

A Signal That the Trump Crime Wave Will Finally End?

by Jude Cowell

Meanwhile, today it's being reported that the Trump indictment won't go as folks think it will go and this is born out in the horoscope shown, below, set for March 30, 2023 5:32 pm edt Manhattan, NY, the time that CNN announced that an indictment had been voted by the NY Grand Jury against Donald J. Trump whose natal 10th house Uranus-NN-Sun trio of chaos and ego is atop the chart.

But why? Because the chart's Ascendant and Midheaven ruler, Mercury the Messenger, makes no applying Ptolemaic aspects to other planets in the indictment horoscope. Therefore, the sign, house, degree, and other conditions of Mercury, planet of votes, deliberation, and announcements, become the focus, and can act in similar fashion as a void of course Moon: that no one can interfere with the proceedings now underway, and/or that results will not be as expected. In Aries, Mercury emphasizes the pioneering of a first-ever indictment of a former US president. In 8th house of Shared Resources, Corporatism, Debts, and Death, we may discover more about this once the indictment is unsealed and the charges are revealed.

So please enlarge and/or print the horoscope to read my study notes, if you wish. Pollen allergies have me under the weather this week, so typing all my notes in this post is not feasible. However, do note that Indictment Jupiter @18Aries directly opposes Trump's natal Jupiter at Station which contains a groovy Sabian Symbol, I've always thought: "Two Men Placed Under Arrest" - a reference to Michael Cohen who 'took the fall' for Trump's pay-off to Stormy Daniels?

Now with Jupiter opposing his Jupiter, the orange blighter would be wise not to push too hard since few people are the least bit impressed with him! He says he'll surrender in New York 'next week', which remains to be seen for I'm uncertain that flight can be ruled out, not yet. One thing is certain: we're sure to hear his Libran Jupiter's favorite complaint, "It's not fair!"

Because of his indictment, how predictable that war and violence have been threatened by Trump and his supporters, and yes, such factors can be found in the above chart. I highlight two in particular:

1. That this event is occurring under the influence of the current Solar Eclipse in the 6 South Saros Series (see notes in center of the chart) with its 'being forceful, taking power; huge effort in group activities' themes - B. Brady) occurring on October 25, 2022 @2Scorpio and here opposed by the transiting Mars-Saturn midpoint @2Taurus, the 'death axis' duo according to Reinhold Ebertin. In August 1932, a 6 South Eclipse manifested as the 'Nazis Rise to Power' Eclipse @8Vir09, discussed previously in multiple SO'W posts. So if ending the rise of Nazis and fascists in America has now begun, you know that I'm all for it. In fact, my uncles who fought Nazis in WWII would be proud of what may be the first of many indictments!

Yet we must face the fact that the rounded-up degree of the North Node (5Taurus) = "A Widow at an Open Grave." A negative word picture, of course, yet Dane Ruhyar adds that people are ready to, Discard the Past rather than using a violent connotation. Meanwhile, I'm still wondering if Ivana Trump's gravesite at Bedminster Golf Course shouldn't be inspected for buried evidence.

2. A dynamic T-Square is present, as you see, with the Moon-Pluto opposition at its base pointing toward the North Node ('NN") of destiny and denoting the removal or elimination of toxins from the system, plus, upsets and upheavals within the community. Additionally, the Moon-Pluto combination indicates criminal elements, and those are the elements and people I fervently hope will be removed from our societal and political systems no matter how many years it may take.

And if we need a further identity check from the horocope: Moon @30Cancer = "A Daughter of the American Revolution" which might describe such malcontent magas as Boebert and Greene with their seditious dreams of revolution and civil war in the streets, but it definitely describes yours truly who insists on retaining American democracy and supporting the continuance of America's Perpetual Union.

Jefferson's Inauguration 1801 Horoscope

A Patriotic Stroll Back to America 1801

by Jude Cowell

Since in March 2023 America continues to be throttled and assaulted by Republicans of the brutal Nazi persuasion in every way they can scheme to finagle their longed-for take-over of our democratic Republic, I'm reverting Stars Over Washington via Monday's post back to the fabled era when Founding Father Thomas Jefferson was first inaugurated as President of the United States in 1801 after a very acrimonious election.

So as you can see in the horoscope, below, early Cancer rises which brings up America's 1776 trio of Venus-Jupiter-Sun, suggesting that intense emotions were in evidence via a Moon-Pluto trine. No, they must not have been aware of power planet Pluto in 1801, but we are - to our advantage. Notably, the trine is the only applying aspect that chart-ruler Moon makes in the horoscope. Apparently, Jefferson's fight for survival (Scorpio Moon) was beneficially aided by a sense of Universalism (Pisces Pluto), and naturally, fate was in attendance with karmic Pluto involved.

Meanwhile, an important consideration is Mr. Jefferson's first natal planet to rise at 12 o'clock but it's complex: his Chiron-Neptune Conjunction @10Cancer (high idealism, a quest for enlightenment - Pottenger; see Midheaven/The Goal: "Men Seeking Illumination"). Soon Jefferson's natal Cancer Moon (19-24 Cancer) arose which to me denotes his Moon-Neptune duo suggesting his refined feelings, love of solitude, and peculiar disposition. These are traits he is known to have expressed during his lifetime, and I know of no biographer who would disagree.

Additionally, Moon-ruled Cancer is the sign of patriotism, tribalism, domesticity, protection, psychism, emotions, impressionability and receptivity, and resonates with the intense emotions of the day for Thomas Jefferson personally, and for various participants who were either for or against his approaching presidency.

As for the event itself, the Inauguration of Thomas Jefferson on March 4, 1801 saw mild weather, and a simply dressed president first to walk to the inaugural ceremony held at the US Capitol Building. Lodging nearby, Mr. Jefferson started his brief stroll at around noon on that day with companions in tow, and delivered his speech, a copy of which had been provided to the National Intelligencer for immediate publication, inside the US Senate Chamber.

Here is the permalink of Jefferson's 1801 speech if you'd care to read the text, and as the newspaper noted, his address was delivered "at 12 o'clock." Therefore, the following Inauguration 1801 Horoscope is set for that hour although his Oath of Office, administered by Chief Justice John Marshall, was taken after his speech so adjust the horoscope's timing as and if you wish:

Putin's War Turns One as His October New Moon Approaches

The Dark-of-the-Moon Phase When Things Go Bump in the Night

by Jude Cowell

Please note: With the accuracy of Putin's birth data being suspect, the following progressions may be off by a few days or months. This is often the case with the dates of progressions but doesn't change the fact that progressed lunations do occur. Original post begins here:

On February 25, 2022, the day after Putin invaded Ukraine and began his war of brutality, he had Russian troops recklessly take over the Chernobyl Reactor. Now the one-year anniversary of Putin's war arrives this Friday and bad vlad has been hinting once again at the use of nuclear weapons in a bid to force his authoritarian way and add Ukraine to Russian territory. No such thing as 'Ukraine,' he stubbornly asserts.

Well, in the following Secondary New Moon ('SP') Horoscope which issues from his natal horoscope shown, lower left (but with only speculative birth data so it's rated DD for dirty data), we find a man now enmeshed within a Moon-Pluto = ASC midpoint influence of 'inner ideals vs reality' and I suspect that reality is on the losing end with bad vlad, determined to have his way no matter how many people have to die. You'll note that two other SP midpoints conjunct his SP Ascendant, and are highlighted on the chart.

For example: SP Saturn-Neptune = ASC which is conjoined by transit South Node (see upper right) @24Lib52: 'use of drugs'? Perhaps Putin is more isolated and acting alone than we know since the South Node suggests neurotic behavior but also separation and a potential for unpopularity. Plus, there've been assertions of illness of some kind which is born out in the chart with Saturn-Neptune the 'illness axis' (R. Ebertin). It's even possible that his resolve may have weakened (SP Sun-Pluto = Neptune) as impediments have caused him much more trouble than expected (this war is not his dream of a three-day take-over after all!).

Yet we should add to this, that his SP planets hint that the Russian dictator may feel it's his 'destiny to enjoy reckless activities' (SP Venus-Mars = SP North Node) along with SP New Moon @25Sag05 perfecting upon his natal Mars, warrior planet of aggression, violence, and martial arts. As a midpoint picture, we find Sun-Moon = Mars: 'the urge to bring to fruition ideals and wishes (R. Ebertin).

But you know what 'they' say: If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

So! Below is a dual image with Putin's generally accepted natal horoscope (lower left) along with his Secondary Progressed New Moon Horoscope of October 30, 2023 (upper right). Not shown is a transit chart for the exact date, hour, and place of his SP New Moon but I can tell you that the day's transit Moon @2Gem43 is a significant timing device in relation to our topic for its rounded-up Sabian Symbol = "The Garden of the Tuileries", a reference to the brutal violence of the French Revolution; plus, the critical degree of "3 Gemini" also suggests nuclear potential which is how we began this post with the 1986 Chernobyl Meltdown and Putin's reckless February 25, 2022 take-over of the dangerous site:

If you wish, please enlarge the image to read a few study notes scribbled thereon for I'm certain you can locate several other interesting planetary factors.

US Solar Return 2022: Veils and Fantasies

America 2022+ Must Use Our Saturn-Uranus Trine!

by Jude Cowell

Regretfully, I must report to you that a Moon-Neptune opposition in America's Solar Return 2022 Horoscope reveals that, for at least another year or so, our mass delusions and fantasy-world desires and schemes will continue to bedevil our reality, and will probably continue to be promoted by mass media outlets as long as it makes them money

Below is an excerpt from a December 2021 post discussing such disturbing mental and emotional conditions and subconscious images occurring within a percentage of our populace who labor under the spell of propaganda, mass hypnosis, mass psychosis, and with a willingness to be deceived by lies that support and promote deeply held emotional biases while not straining their thought processes overly much.

A Moon-Neptune Veil Within and Surrounding America

"Greater than all physical dangers are the tremendous effects of delusional ideas which are yet denied all reality by our world-blinded consciousness. Our much vaunted reason and boundlessly overestimated will are sometimes utterly powerless in the face of 'unreal' thoughts."

- Dr. Carl Jung, speaking about America which he identified as prone to societal breakdown "due to mass delusion" and this is where we find ourselves today - with enemies who take advantage of our weakened condition, purposefully made worse by saboteurs and propagandists who assault our "much vaunted" reasoning ability. You know the tale of America: founded upon ideas and reason. Plato's Ideal of a perfect society. Can men govern themselves without monarchs? It's being made unusually difficult with Moon-Neptune influences mucking things up at every turn and spreading conspiracy theories, fantasies, and confusion across the land. And curiously, certain politicians, what FDR called "economic royalists," prefer monarchy in the form of an authoritarian dictatorship in America. Personally, I very much doubt that if they got their way, such a dystopian government would be all they expect it to be.

Image: America's Solar Return July 5, 2022 4:23:29 am EDT Washington DC

Hour of Saturn (limits; consolidation); Chart-ruler Mercury makes no applying aspects but is prominent @00Cancer and rising in 1st house so Mercurial concerns will be in focus around the country and globally; transit Mercury turns Rx @8Lib55 in September in Return 5th house; meanwhile, the Ascendant @23Gem03 brings US Mars to the fore while the Midheaven ('MC") @00Pis04 sports our nation's Prenatal Solar Eclipse in the 12 South Saros Series (00Pis33) with themes of 'successful outcomes to longterm worries or illness; draining issues seem worse, then clear' (paraphrasing B. Brady). Could this suggest more improvement in the pandemic department of life? Hopefully, yes! And perhaps improvement in military realms, too. And who can't appreciate the Moon-Pluto trine's ability to lift people onto a plane of higher consciousness?

Yet we see that the Moon-Neptune opposition is Angular and thus significant across the 4/10 axis of Domestic Scene-Public Status in the signs of Virgo-Pisces, the victim-savior polarity. Furthermore, the Moon-Neptune opposition squares US Mars(irritability; sensitivity; weakening conditions) while the Moon @22Vir36 in her own 4th house reflects US natal Neptune which emphasizes America's Mars-Neptune square of 1776 while adding lunar vibes (We the People) to the ongoing 'clash of ideals' Neptune in Pisces opposition to US Neptune in the more fact-based sign of Virgo with its persecution implications (racial and civil). Plus, health indicators are present here, and elsewhere in the chart, yet let's hope that America's 12 South Eclipse at MC can spread a lot of positive influences around and thus provide a lift to societal conditions.

Now as you see, with US Sun (13Can19) in Solar Return 1st house, 2022 until our next Return in July 2023 will mark a significant year for development with US leadership in the spotlight and Cancerian business capacity on the rise, especially with Moon-ruled Cancer on the SR 2nd cu$p - as long as those frothy Moon-Neptune delusions, held by unstable and bad faith actors, are kept reasonably under control around financial deals and investments, and physically. Basically, we'll need to keep eagle eyes on our collective cookie jar!

Additional Considerations for America 2022 into 2023

So with all the recent talk of war and revolution within America's public discourse, thanks to saboteurs, global mobsters, craven political operatives, and manic insurrectionists, it seems significant to me that very near our country's July 4th Independence Day 2022, a symbolic new cycle begins which issues from the American Revolution Horoscope because a Secondary Progressed ('SP') New Moon perfects @00Cap41 on July 8, 2022. With a flurry of cosmic synchronicity, this SP New Moon lands upon one of the four Cardinal Points of World Manifestation, which, when stimulated, tends to time global events of major significance. Will this symbolic lunation do the trick on a global scale? If other indicators chime in by transit, arc, and/or progression, it certainly can act as a timing device (as progressed Moons tend to do), especially at what is considered a critical, highly senstized zero degree. For the most probability of actual events, Carter's Rule of Three will naturally apply.

Thing is, we've been wandering about in the dark for the last few years during the SP Balsamic Phase (prior to the perfection of a SP New Moon) in relation to the meaning of America, and the true significance of events and it will take a few years for the solar-lunar light to grow bright enough to fairly navigate by. Yes, it's true that difficult events lie ahead for the US, and for the world. But as is so often said, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Meanwhile, Americans must recognize and directly face our problems in the stark light of reality for it's the only way to conquer them so that we as a people can plough on through with the reasoning ability intact that our nation's Founders, inspired by the brilliant Saturn-Uranus trine of their day, bequeathed to We the People as our birth right. So that if enough of us use the beneficial energies, they may act as a bridge between the past and the present, providing inventiveness and common sense that can only be suppressed if we allow it to be!

So there's merely a quick look at US SR 2022 Horoscope potentials and, of course, there are more planetary factors to find, some mitigating negatives, some interfering with positives.

Now in closing, look beyond 2022 into 2023, for here's a much recommended article by master astrologer Robert Wilkinson who provides the reader with a vast, expanded view of the Cosmos and The Ages as humanity stands poised for the transformation to come in, The Sun Now Vitalizes 30 Aquarius Where the Age of Aquarius Will Begin After 2050. This is Part 2 so you'll want to check out Part 1.

And Please Be Advised: There's another significant Return Horoscope for America - our nation's Chiron Return in April 2024 in bold, pioneering Aries.

Apr 23, 2021

A Natal Chart for Senator John Kennedy (R-LA)

April 23, 2021: If you're curious about the contrary Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) his Wikipedia bio page can supply a few details. Born John Neely Kennedy on November 21, 1951 in Centreville, Mississippi but raised in Zachary, Louisiana, Mr. Kennedy served as Treasurer of Louisiana from January 10, 2000 to January 3, 2017, the date he was sworn in to serve in the US Senate.

For your consideration, I've rustled up a 12:00 pm (CST) natal horoscope for Senator Kennedy which shows Sun in late Scorpio and Moon in late Leo (a Sun-Moon square = "Me Against Thee" - A. Oken). Yet if born on or after 4:35:30 pm CST, his Moon is in Virgo, sign of The Critic, which, considering his typical performances on Capitol Hill, just may be the case. However, if born earlier with Moon in dramatic Leo (he's a lawyer, politician, and show-off), the Sun-Moon personality of the two Fixed (rigid) signs makes more sense to me so I'm going with that. Besides, a Virgo Moon would give him a pragmatic, supportive Water-Earth blend of conscious and unconscious energies while Water-Fire suggests a steamy, volatile, intensely personal blend that cannot step back and see things from an impersonal viewpoint. And with a Watery Sun and Fiery Moon, this is the combo of the 'passionate crusader' so you can see why I suspect a Leo Moon for John Kennedy (- Charles and Suzi Harvey).

So! Below is a speculative Natal Horoscope for John Kennedy with many of my study notes penned on such as: Mercury out-of-bounds ('OOBs' = off-planet ideas?) and a Pisces North Node which can indicate secret meetings with odd people and/or associations which can harm the community. Now as you see, he was sworn in on January 3, 2017 (at his Nodal Half Return) with the Sun opposing his quirky Uranus Rx which happens to conjunct Sirius (the scorcher), so compromise with fellow senators was not on his agenda. Also note that his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') in the 7 South Saros Series contains a tremendous amount of anger, power, and force (belied by his 'lazy' southern accent when questioning those he considers beneath him) thanks to 7 South's initial eclipse with a Mars-Pluto square (from Leo to Scorpio! with Saturn involved!). A crisis-ridden 7 South Eclipse will repeat on October 14, 2023 @21Libra.

See lower right for a few notes on the intensely emotional Moon-Pluto pair. And it's possible that the senator may have grown up with one of those infamous "smother mothers"! And, deep inside, harbor a reigning need for power, leadership, and applause.

Meanwhile, Mr Kennedy's Sun-Moon square implies relationship troubles or frustrations (due to ego, pride, and stubbornness?), and suggests that he's hypersensitive to criticism so please treat the speculative chart gingerly! Because with a Venus-Saturn conjunction, Mr. Kennedy is a discontented, dissatisfied kind of guy whose Sun Scorpio-Moon Leo personality combo has no tolerance for anyone who disagrees with him or stands in his way.

So in case you missed his recent 'grilling' concerning voter suppression in Georgia, see Senator John Kennedy Thought He Could Get the Best of Stacey Abrams (credit to MSNBC's The ReidOut); let's just say the senator fell short of his objective:

Lower left: Two natal midpoint pictures are in force for the entire 24 hours of his birth day no matter his time of birth: Mars-Uranus = Pluto and Mercury-Pluto = Neptune. A few of their potentials are listed although others, more dangerous, shocking, or draining, may apply as well. Also note that Mr. Kennedy's natal Uranus @13Can33 conjuncts US natal Sun so perhaps the non-traditional ideas and unorthodox methods he brought to Congress in 2017 have to do with the presidency of the United States and/or how leadership was established on July 4, 1776 in relation to the principles embedded within the Declaration of Independence.

Just a few thoughts. What do you think?

US Moon-Pluto Cycle: zealous fanatics fighting evil!

A Cosmic Clock of Karma: Crisis-Ridden America's Moon-Pluto Cycle

by Jude Cowell

In Summer 1776, our Declaration of Independence was the prominent event when America's Moon-Pluto Cycle began with their real-time Conjunction @27Cap35:44 on July 2, 1776 (3:55:44 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). This planetary pairing describes intense events of the day such as battling for control of the country against a dictatorial British monarch, the king's intolerable restrictions and laws, and the imposition of occupying troops leading to brutal acts. Intense responses of men and women who came to be called Patriots ensued, also under Moon-Pluto influences in the governmental, legal, and business sign of Saturn-ruled Capricorn which, along with other difficult influences, rendered depressive Moon-Pluto-Saturn vibes of loss and grief to the American Revolutionary era and often the need to 'regroup forces and plan anew' (Tyl).

Now last I heard, that cosmic clock still ticks so we might expect related conditions and events to exist in our era most noticeably when activated into expression by the various aspects within the Moon-Pluto Cycle, with conjunctions, squares, quincunxes, and oppositions to 27Cap35 suggesting periods of manifestation in the physical world. Plus, as you know, Secondary Progressions (particularly of the SP Moon) are a good timing method for gaining evolutionary information for whatever date we choose and today I choose the event-filled month of October 2020 based on America's Secondary Progressed ('SP') Conjunction of Moon-Pluto @29Cap20, a critical-crisis 29th degree. Sabian Symbol for '30Capricorn' = "A Secret Business Conference": "OPPORTUNITY" (Jones); EXECUTIVE POWER (Rudhyar). Its Illumination Point (opposite degree/unconscious) is: '30Cancer' = "A Daughter of the American Revolution": INHERITANCE (Jones); GLORIFICATION OF THE PAST (Rudhyar).

Potential expressions of the intense Moon-Pluto pairing are listed, below, and here you can view or re-view a DC Horoscope of America's SP Moon-Pluto Conjunction which perfected on October 15, 2020. Note that the SP chart I've used issues from America's July 4, 1776 horoscope set for 5:09 pm LMT with Aries Point conjunct IC, its foundation point. Of course, progressing other US charts would give slightly different timings but I'll leave that up to you, dear reader.

For real-world context, here's a handy Timeline of Trump Events for October 2020, many if not all of which show Moon-Pluto (Saturn) influences. And, speaking of our SP Moon-Pluto Conjunction, you'll remember that Trump backed out of the second debate with Joe Biden - scheduled for October 15th! I'll go ahead and say that Moon-Pluto-Saturn concerns were heavily involved with the virus-infected Trump's turn-tail behavior along with his typically short-sighted political considerations of the moment. And curiously enough, the very moment of the SP Conjunction on October 15th (see horocope linked, above), transits shows karmic Saturn @25Cap+ leading the Capricorn Trio and approaching the Moon-Pluto duo (29Cap20) which echoes the Moon-Pluto-Saturn trio of influences (off and on starting in 1776) and denotes emotional and mental suffering, and grave inhibitions. So perhaps even hotheaded Trump recognized a need to 'regroup forces and plan anew'. After his disastrous performance in the first debate, he was afraid of defeat so he chose retreat.

So here are some of the positive and negative cosmic influences of the Moon-Pluto pair (with Saturnian undertones chocked full of karma) that relate to our Revolutionary era and to current conditions and events.

Potentials of the Moon-Pluto Cycle in Politics, Business, Biology (in no particular order):

Feeling that evil must be fought no matter how drastically living conditions must be altered in order to do so; fanatical zeal; a craving for power and control; a highly creative pairing with a tranformative or regenerative quality; powerful women; intense emotional feelings and/or outbursts (ex: rage); clinging to destructive relationships or conditions, or, a tendency to let the past die; drastic mood variations; expressing sterile sentiments; obsessions that lead to a misuse of resources (exs: a border wall; expensive golfing trips); popular promises such as ending war or waste; public opinions on war, crime, and/or internal secrecy; panic, ungrounded or free-floating fears, hysteria; people from broken homes; babies born out of wedlock; rituals of purification; offended vanity or conceit; rash actions; risky behavior; jealousy; anger; making or enforcing drastic changes or reforms; overbearing conduct with women; reversals; alterations in the domestic sphere; doubts about how to control criminal or terrorist activities; life-after-death interests; hoarding trash; touchy emotions about how others evaluate degraded practices; compassion for victims of immoral practices or criminal elements. (Munkasey; Tyl; R. Ebertin; JC.)

Biologically the duo relates to the metabolism, blood disease, toxemia, fluid retention, and cancer.

October 2020: Surprise, Zeal, Crisis, and Moon-Pluto

Moon to Pluto: Power To The People!

by Jude Cowell

In a Flurry of Full Disclosure: The following horoscope was recently published to my Stars Over Washington Patreon account and, for the sake of America, appears here with the author's permission (yours truly!); fresh notes on Moon-Pluto are added, below.

August 1, 2020: With a desperate incumbent crouching in the White House and a 'peaceful' passing of presidential baton on our national horizon many pundits and prognosticators are wondering aloud not if but when and what sort of October Surprise may be in store for US voters through the malevolent auspices of Trump, his monied backers both foreign and domestic, and his complicit Trump Party. However, many folks might say that the entire year of 2020 behaves as one huge October Surprise if disrupting the November Election/s, upending society as a whole, discrediting democracy around the world, undermining US systems, institutions, and laws, 'purifying' and reducing the populace, and keeping the scofflaw orange despot in the Oval Office are their primary goals. Apparently, hidden manipulators (ex: Plutonian Plutocrats) want We The People reduced to a more manageable size with politicians like mouthpiece Trump acting as figureheads of their authoritarian agenda.

Question: To Surprise or Not To Surprise?

Now as you know, Astrology provides several techniques to aid such a forecast of Uranian surprise, even shock, yet today let's choose only one timing device - the Secondary Progressed Moon of the USA ('SP'). Using America's founding horoscope for July 4, 1776 5:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and progressing it a day-for-a-year, we discover that our nation's natal Moon in Aquarius soon progresses to 29Cap20 where Luna will conjunct US SP Pluto at that exact degree and minute on October 15, 2020 8:00 am edt. Below is the DC Horoscope of this cosmic moment - the intensity of which is building now - including notes concerning various components in relation to Politics and to other realms of concern. Added are the 'real world' transits and midpoint potentials for this symbolic moment which perfects only 19 days prior to Election Day 2020:

Image: Bi-Wheel inner October 15, 2020 8:00 pm US SP Moon-Pluto Conjunction @29Cap20; outer Transits: October 15, 2020 8:00 pm edt Washington DC.

SP Moon-Pluto @29Cap20 rounded up = "30 Capricorn": "A Secret Business Conference"; "Keyword: OPPORTUNITY; positive expression: a gift for clever planning and successful administration in every area of life; negative expression: rampant selfishness and rank exploitation of others" (Jones). Does this sound to you like a Biden administration (being planned) vs the Trump 'administration'?

Potentials for Moon-Pluto working as a duo: any, all, or none may express

From Tyl and Ebertin: Zeal; intensity; fanaticism; extreme emotions; exaggerated new plans; obtaining objectives without any regard for other people; offended vanity or conceit; jealousy; violent outbursts; inner shocks or emotional upheavals; rash actions. Biological: metabolism of liquids; blood disease; pressure caused by toxemia; the endocrine system; cancer indications.

Now quoting in Hegelian form from Munkasey's Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets:

"Thesis: The people's opinion about subjects like crime, war, or internal secrecy; the role of women in controlling self-destructive impulses; popular promises concerning an end to war, waste, etc. in appeals to the people.

Antithesis: encourages violence or crime; people become doubtful about how to exert the proper controls on criminal or terrorist elements; obsessions which bring a misuse of the resources available for country or business."

Sleuthing through a few past horoscopes for significant planets @29/30 Capricorn I found these potentials:

October 2020 Moon-Pluto 29Cap20 = Election Day 2016 Mars (29Cap51): 'using force to achieve changes in corrupt practices; active in assuring the promised protection is delivered; participants in clamor or emotional intensity; intense emotional crisis; deep irritation over delays in any form; anger, quarrels, frustration; too much energy not knowing where to go'.

October 2020 Moon-Pluto = Spring Equinox 2020 Saturn (29:50): 'pressure to regroup forces and plan anew; avoiding the need to look at what must change; realism about how to deal with gloomy or morbid thoughts; authority figures who have a profound effect; constraint; feelings of loss; depression; mental or emotional suffering; one-sided or overwhelming emotions; grave inhibitions'.

Additionally, we should note that Moon-Pluto contacts may suggest intuition or psychism, secrets and/or scandals, plus, the possible discovery of a child born out of wedlock, or perhaps a secret marriage in someone's past that becomes public knowledge.

August 2020: DOJ's Progressed Full Moon in Cancer

It's a 2020 DOJ Astro-Alert!

Below is a dual chart image of the dedication horoscope of the Department of Justice ('DOJ') October 25, 1934 (in Freemasonic ceremony presided over by FDR beginning at 3:00 pm est; lower left) and DOJ's Secondary Progressed ('SP') Full Moon @28Can39 (culmination of a cycle) which perfects on August 20, 2020 at 2:36:31 pm edt with both charts set for Washington DC, so often the villain of the piece. As you see, DOJ's SP Full Moon conjoins SP Pluto, and opposite, DOJ's SP Sun conjuncts America's natal Pluto Rx so that our natal Mercury-Pluto opposition and the karmic progressed DOJ Nodal axis are involved across a blend of the ambitious Cancer-Capricorn axis and the self-willed Leo-Aquarius polarity.

At SP Midheaven ('MC') sits the SP midpoint of Uranus-North-Node of radical, reactionary politics of anarchy and zealotry which suggests sudden, disruptive reforms while opposing SP Neptune: a partner retires and/or deception (Ebertin). And Neptune conjunct IC? Foundation undermining is underway. To me the complex Uranus-NN-MC-Neptune-IC picture in part describes recent resignations of DOJ lawyers in order to avoid working any longer under a Trump-bossed DOJ which was set up to be independent of the Executive Branch of government but is now overseen by Trump's personal "Attorney General" Bill Barr, who now 'hears' calls for him to step down or be impeached:

Here are potentials for the SP Full Moon's more prominent midpoint pictures which seem to me to relate to current events and Trump's erosion of the rule of law:

Sun-Pluto = Uranus: carrying out fanatic reforms; Pluto-NN = Uranus: big upsets within the community; as noted, Uranus-NN = MC: desire to bring plans to fruition with others; Uranus-Neptune = ASC: instability; people who are easily influenced; Jupiter-Neptune = Mars: unreliability; being let down by others; speculation; plans without prospect; Mercury-MC = Saturn: abandonment of previous aims (Ebertin).

Now there are a lot more details that could be said about DOJ's SP Full Moon horoscope in relation to current events but frankly I'm too wumped out to type it for you this evening so perhaps an energetic reader will provide her or his insights by adding an on-topic comment under this post!

Ari Melber: March 31 1980 Sun Aries-Moon Libra

A few bio details concerning MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber are available for the curious. Mr Melber has a 39th birthday upcoming - born March 31, 1980 in Seattle, Washington. Below you see a speculative natal horoscope for Ari Melber as timed by that day's Full Moon which perfected @11Lib03 at 7:13:52 am PST in Seattle; I'm not going to make a big deal about the chart but here it is in case anyone ever wants it--the Full Moon version, that is. Because to me, his day of birth is cosmically imprinted with the rays of a Full Moon @11Lib03, no matter his accurate hour and minute of birth.

Any other speculation on Ari's birth time is up to you so have at it!

As you see penned on the chart (messily as usual!), his planet of communication and reporting (on TV, no less--he's quite photogenic), Mercury @13Pis22 sextiles Chiron and forms the base of a YOD pattern that points toward the Libran Moon (the public; publicity) and this, I assert, describes Ari Melber's special task in life. What do you think? See chart for sextile details provided by Barbara Hand Clow (as notated above the natal chart).

And since the page linked above states that Mr. Melber married in 2014, divorced in 2017, I'll gingerly mention that his chart displays a telling Venus-Uranus opposition which tends a native toward problematic relationships that, in order to last, must be supported by stability from other factors in the chart and psyche for best results. A strong, sober Saturn is always helpful - his Rx in critical, discerning Mercury-ruled Virgo, and in wide opposition with thinking Mercury in creative Pisces. Yet with any contact between lovely Venus and quirky Uranus, relationships can be and usually are, exciting while they last!

Then what about his Sun Aries-Moon Libra personality blend of conscious and unconscious energies?

Some personality traits can be seen on his MSNBC show The Beat, Ari's love of rap music is well known, and music references tend to turn up on his show in segments and in his commentary. His is a Fire-Air blend, full of exciting ideas that he communicates easily and with zeal. Idealism, optimism, and a charming hospitality may be noticed on screen (and one presumes in person) along with a vivacious streak of chivalry (hero complex?), plus, a large dose of ingeniousness is apparent. Dependence vs independence in relationships (Aries-Libra) proves an important theme in life, though in youth Ari may have been a bit of a flirt. And actually, a Libran Moon person can become quite detached and this coolness tends to attract emotional outbursts from others. Others like the ladies! Still, as an adult Mr. Melber naturally prefers to be in a 'good' relationship (Sun Sign Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey).

The Harveys' "Image for Integration" seems appropriate for Ari Melber's Sun-Moon blend and perhaps you'll agree:

"A conductor leads an orchestra with passionate conviction and a vibrant pulsating organism of musical perfection is created to the ecstatic uplifting of the audience." Yes, pulsating like The Beat!

Well, perhaps two famous quotes from a fellow also born under the Sun Aries-Moon Libra combo can add a certain something to our tale:

"The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves." And, "The art of pleasing consists in being pleased." - essayest William Hazlitt.

Great advice for us all!

Chart Note: the earliest (12:00 am pst) position of the Sun on March 31, 1980 in Seattle, WA: 10Ari45, earliest Moon position = 7Lib29); the latest (11:59 pm pst) Sun and Moon positions are: 11Ari44 and 19Lib21 conjunct Pluto Rx @20lib39 which, in self-aware folk, can give great psychological insight into the psyches of others and an endless well of creativity, yet may also hint at a mother who smothered. Perhaps all three!

NATO Summit Sept 4-5, 2014: a Moon-Pluto Affair

Astro-Notes: NATO Summit September 4-5, 2014 Newport, Wales

by Jude Cowell

As you've heard the first NATO Summit since Chicago 2012 is being held this week in Newport, Wales, U. K. with President Obama among the attendees. It is reported that President Putin of Russia will not be in attendance.

Interesting that the Summit is in and around the cathedral and university town Newport (Monmouthsire County on the River Usk about 12 miles from Cardiff) for its history is long and storied. Even King Arthur is linked into the region for ancient Caerleon is one of the many places Arthur's legendary castle may have been located. Here's a website with a photo of the remaining Roman Tower and several article links if you're curious about such ancient events and places pre-Norman invasion.

As for the Astrology of the NATO Summit 2014 itself, my blogging time is too limited to say much though there are many chart factors of note. Venus in Leo (Caer-leon--Leo the Lion) moves into Virgo and touches Royal Star Regulus ('success if revenge is avoided'), a star which also links cosmically to the Capitol Building in Washington DC which is very much a Virgoan city.

During such high-flying meetings I always look for planetary conjunctions and on September 4th at 5:56:19 pm the Moon conjoins powerful Pluto @11Cap:04:43 and in this case, I'm not thinking of the Moon as 'the public' which is shut out of the proceedings as usual but as 'tribes' for the Summit is primarily being held at the Celtic Manor Resort. Celtic tribes and their descendants are gathering to discuss security and terror methods though who will be on the receiving end of their terror tactics we shall have to see.

Another quick factor to consider for a hint of the Summit's flavor is the Sun-Moon combination. If we look at 'start/end' horoscopes beginning with September 4, 2014 at 12:00 am, we find the Moon at 00Cap26, a World Point of Manifestation and Sun @11Vir21. The latest degree of Moon and Sun (September 5th at 11:59 pm though events may not go on that long--I'm speaking symbolically here) are: Moon @29Cap23 in 8th house and Sun @13Vir18 in 4th house (Endings; Foundation.)

Conveniently then the Sun-Moon blend is Virgo-Capricorn, a double Earth combo of practicality and pragmatism. Sun has the Mercurial details (Virgo) and Moon is about ambition, management, control in the political, business, and legal spheres.

Sun Vir-Moon Cap tends to 'hide its light under a bushel'...or behind a ritzy facade with massive amounts of warships in the harbor, police forces at the ready, and a well-regulated press. And note that Capricorn can signify the old country.

The Harvey's book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign gives three Images for Integration for this combo:

"A headline: 'Small-town boy makes good'...A student passes entrance examination to a prestigious technical college...Fine bone china." Make of these as you will though I add that beautiful Wales is reportedly very glad to have the world spotlight cast upon it this week!

And what of the combined energies of the Moon-Pluto influence? Obviously a few ladies are in attendance (Moon) along with international big-wigs from finance (wealthy, creepy Pluto with treasures hidden in secret places and an obsession with secrecy, spying, and gold), the Vatican (Pluto as The Pope), and we know that the ISIS assassins (Pluto) may come up as a topic. But Moon-Pluto as a duo also implicates criminal syndicates (organized crime--ISIS isn't the only one operating), popular promises about ending war, waste, etc, people's opinions about topics such as crime, war, or internal secrecy, and doubts about how to control terrorist elements in society (Munkasey.)

Misuse of available resources certainly should be a topic though improvement in that quarter by those who practice it regularly is unlikely for with this crowd guns tend to win over butter for the people every time.

The crystal ball of Underdog McCain

Just want to be certain you heard that John "Underdog" McCain seems to have a secret about the November presidential election:

McCain predicts he'll overtake Obama 48 hours before the election so he must know something we don't know.

Sounds to me like Underdog, as he's calling himself, has received an assurance from Karl Rove.

Well, November 4 is a Lunar Return for John McCain, his natal Moon conjuncts US natal Pluto (power; the secret hand), and thus Underdog's n Pluto opposes US n Pluto--sheesh! you say, that's a shotload of Moon-Pluto energy...what does it mean?

Moon-Pluto is a primal combination of emotions and rage with his natal opposition giving him an extremely touchy temperament, as colleagues in the Senate can attest when they offend McCain's vanity, however slightly.

By comparison, Bush's Cancerian sensitivity is nothing in comparison to this joker's emotional issues and need for control. Natal moon in Capricorn = reigning need for control and authority, which only bolsters his Moon-Pluto issues such as:

McCain's tolerance for emotional pain is very low and his bitterness is deep toward those who would attempt to control him--they're wasting their time if they try. He'll be doin' the controlling around here, and donchu forget it.

There's a natural defiance of authority with a Moon-Pluto opposition, so having this primal, maniacal rage within White House walls with this particular finger on The Button are frightening thoughts.

Public relations is a usual interest with this aspect yet there will be trouble in dealing with the public. His Crankiness may be on display from the Oval Office on a regular basis with a president named McCain, whose natal Moon-with-US-Pluto will be on display at Midheaven on Jan 20, 2009, noon, Capitol Building...The Goal.

If we think George Bush has turned a deaf ear to the American people during his interminable tenure, push Underdog through the backdoor and don't expect any hint of a president "representing" the common good--or of his upholding, protecting, or defending, the US Constitution.

With a McCain presidency, a show will be made initially, of course--they all do for the illusive honeymoon period, but really--shouldn't the Oath of Office be morphed to reflect a globalist shill's true elitist intent toward America?

So the natal aspect which may help catapult McCain into the White House may turn out to be the fly in the bad president ointment "at the end of the day" as Moon (the public; publicity)-Pluto (propaganda; manipulation; control; coping ability) give Underdog the necessary primal energy to continue the fascist subjugation of the American people and the destruction and transformation of our nation's most hallowed dreams, systems, and infrastructures.

With Moon-Pluto, Underdog possesses the massive Ego needed for the job of top propaganda-catapulter (as Bush so richly termed himself...sometimes a hint of honesty accidentially--aka unconsciously--peeks through their political masks. Kind of like the above announcement where McCain--oops!--spills a smidge of The November Plan!)

And with McCain as prez, the political fly paper has Dick Cheney's wings pinned to our destiny as before and the New World Order marches on totally oblivious and uncaring for the misery it causes the innocent.

About 48 hours before Nov 4, eh? Moon will conjunct McCain's natal Jupiter in mid-Sagittarius during that time bringing happy feelings and a fleeting sense of well-being!

False flag op, bin Laden tape release, an Obama secret revealed, a new trick up Rove's magician's sleeve? The possibilities are truly endless when you live by the ends-justify-the-means creed of Washington players and the blackmailers who enable them.
