Libertarian Party Audience Heckles Trump

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

By now you've seen clips of Trump being loudly booed and heckled as he attempted to deliver a speech at the Libertarian Convention now in progress (May 23--May 26). Agent Orange was trying to beg for Libertarian votes in November!

Checking the history of the Libertarian Party (US) we find that the party formed on December 11, 1971 after months of debate by a Committee founded on July 17th. The new party was publicly announced at a press conference on January 31, 1972. According to the party's Wikipedia page, the group formed partially as a response to Nixon's price controls and the ending of the Gold Standard.

Actually, we've discussed these topics previously such as in March 2021 with this: An Eclipse Series ended in 1931: The End of an Epoch. That was in the UK. The 9 Old South Series that ended on July 22, 1971 is noted therein with 1971 being the year that the US ended reliance upon the Gold Standard which helped sparked the formation of the Libertarian Party.

So! Let's take a peek at a noon Horoscope of the Libertarian Party, shall we? Unmarked by my usual study notes, it's suitable for printing if you wish:

Horoscope: Libertarian Party December 11, 1971 "noon" Colorado Springs, CO; Hour of the Moon (changes; fluctuations); ASC 13Pis26; MC 20Sag49; Sun 20Sag04/Moon 12Lib11, a 'live wire' Fire-Air blend with tendencies toward gregariousness, intellectualism, charisma, and a quick wit. The Harveys describe this combination of conscious and unconscious energies as a "frequenter of coffee shops" (!), and a blend which can be gullible, has a need for social advancement, and to "come down to earth" when being overly expansive. The blend's "Image for Integration" is rather interesting: "The Dead Poets' Society" and is shared natally by Jane Austen and Walt Disney.

Then as you see, there's a high flying Kite pattern of success anchored by the Saturn-Neptune opposition of subterfuge (Neptune the nose, Saturn the tail) but only if we allow the South Node @6AQ30 to be one of the points of the Kite. Perhaps we should since this South Node conjuncts US 1776 South Node marking the period as a Nodal Return for America, a time when new associations are formed.

Meanwhile, powerful wealth-hoarder 1971 Pluto @1Lib53 leads a ruthless Locomotive shape of the planets while radical Uranus @17Lib29 conjuncts the natal 2nd house Jupiter Stationary of NY playboy Donald Trump, age 25 in 1971. Perhaps this planetary contact partially accounts for the booing and heckling of Le Donald at the Libertarian Convention since Uranus symbolizes separation and disruption and is Trump's natal 10th house guiding planet of chaos, zealous radicalism, and Utopian ideals of lawlessness. He's uncontrollable and they know it.

Venus, planet of pespectives, evaluations, and currency is out-of-bounds @15Cap45 (conjunct US 'Powell' Moon in the July 1, 1776 "first vote" chart), and this founding chart reveals a 3rd quarter phase - crisis in consciousness - strong with Mutable-Fire Angularity (noon is only speculative). No planet is in a Fixed sign, only the South Node in Aquarius.

Then there's Mars in Pisces squaring Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter with potentials for restlessness, self-seeking, a sharp tongue, compulsive speech repetition, extravagance, overindulgence, and/or taking on too much at once.

To close, I'll mention two more factors: the most prominent midpoint picture in effect all day is Pluto-NN = Neptune: success through lies and fraud (R. Ebertin); the power of the half-truth; deception as a tool; win at any cost (N. Tyl), and the Party's Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE") which influenced its formation, the 9 New South @27Leo15 (conjunct you-know-who's natal Mars rising which suggests his headstrong, violent tendencies) which manifested on August 20, 1971.

Themes of 9 New South include worrisome news and responsibilities with paperwork come home to roost (paraphrasing B. Brady). The next 9 New South arrives on September 21, 2025 (basically an 'Autumn Equinox 2025 Eclipse') @29Vir05 with Uranus Rx @1Gem21 conjunct the Libertarian Party's 1971 Saturn suggesting reevaluation and possibly the altering of certain rules, regulations, and restrictions. Notably, the 2025 Eclipse will land upon the Party's 1971 Pluto, a power aspect that negatively can indicate revelations of criminality (R. Lineman).

All in all, the Libertarian Party's founding horoscope is quite Jupiterian (Sag), plus, the Gold Standard and price controls set them off, so I'd suppose that most issues then and now have to do with finances, don't you? But with a side order of Jupitarian issues of freedom, ideology, and boundary-breaking - and quite a large load of deception.

Many Thanks to all readers who have 'bought me a coffee' for your generous support encourages the continuation of this lonely work! Jude

Horoscope: Flower Power Eclipse 1966

Enough of Trump--now for something completely different. Well, not too different for we of the Flower Power generation circa 1960s must get out and Vote on November 6th if we haven't for if the Cosmic Peace Symbol of planets in effect during the Total 4 South Solar Eclipse of November 12, 1966 @19Sco45 still has any meaning at all, hopefully we'll vote en masse for compassionate candidates and not for those who favor and promote hatred, intolerance, and violence. That's my personal hope anyway!

So here's the Flower Power Eclipse Horoscope set for--where else?--San Francisco, California:

Hour of the Moon (fluctuations, instability); chart-ruler Mars applies to three planets (see chart, lower left); violent trio of Mars-Pluto-Uranus in Virgo 10th house opposes Saturn Rx in Pisces which conjoins Wounded Healer and Blind Spot Chiron also Rx in Pisces which suggests social rigidity vs archetypal forces seeking to force their way into public consciousness. A difficult midpoint picture is formed between Mars-Uranus = Pluto (which conjoins fixed star Denebola: to go against society, or, out of the mainstream which can describe the Flower Power generation)--but also Nixon's government with potentials for the use of force, violent intervention (such as Kent State 1970), and battling against a higher power (Ebertin; Munkasey).

The most prominent planet in the eclipse chart besides the eclipse itself, is karmic Saturn in the karmic sign of Pisces for Saturn is the handle of a Sling shape--like a Bundle except the handle planet assumes great significance because the energies of all the other planets are directed toward it. And while a Bundle shape in its extreme manifestation is the archetypal signature of a ruthless dictator (Mussolini was born with it, Trump has it now via his Secondary Progressions--you can view the Bundle in his SP New Moon Horoscope of September 16, 2019). Guess that's the ruthless mindset it takes in order to cage innocent children and to order the US military to the border to shoot kids throwing pebbles and rocks--and Trump's got it. Nixon's natal horoscope shows a Locomotive shape led by Mars @29Sag44--the 'ruthless executive' pattern--while Mussolini's natal Uranus @20Vir52 conjoins Pluto in the Flower Power Eclipse chart shown here. All three men answer to the 'win-at-any-cost' model in which the ends allegedly justify the means, the use of force and violence included.

This Solar Eclipse in Scorpio sparked two fixed stars by degree (19 Scorpio). First is Alpha Serpentis, keywords: tragedy and misfortune; plus, Devore gives 19 Scorpio as "the crucial point in the struggle between the Supreme Will and the ego"; Anthony Louis notes that it is traditionally considered by some to be "an accursed degree of the accursed sign," but adds that "this is not too reliable." The second star is North Scale which contains both positive and negative potentials of 'wealth, honors, intelligence, distinction, success in religion, law, writing, war, and sports'; negatives are 'hasty words cause problems, tragedy, and violence' (Horary Astrology Plain and Simple, A. Louis).

Plus, a third star, South Scale, rises in the eclipse chart with the separative, neurotic South Node of the Moon along with Hidalgo, one of the "power" asteroids which reminds me of the era and the book The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge by Carlos Castenada, published in 1968 and originally his Master thesis in Anthropology at the University of California. Even now, the debate continues as to whether Castenada 'made it all up' or actually experienced the events he describes in the book. Keywords for South Scale are 'theft, loss, betrayal' (our generation felt betrayed by The Establishment in more ways than the Vietnam War--US bombing increased in 1966), venereal disease (a dreary downside to our misguided 'free love' illusion), revenge, anguish, criminality, abuse, and/or drowning'. These potentials sound very Neptunian and Piscean, don't they?

And accompanying the eclipse is a Venus-Neptune conjunction in sexy Scorpio, a duo suggesting those who live in a beautiful world of the imagination, plus, love and adoration, goddess worship, erroneous if idealistic perceptions about love and sex (deluded love), escapes from reality--through dreams and visions--or, through drugs, pop music and psychedelic art.

Now this eclipse falls into the 4 South Saros Series, as noted above, with themes of 'strong emotional feelings about relationships and/or money with a sense of fate or karma attached' ('soul mates forever'?); 'anger or lust; relationship events that are beyond personal control' (passionate, intense Scorpio is all about control of self and others--and betrayal); 'much frustration as emotions are blocked or checked somehow; a sudden desire to end a relationship; avoid rash action until issues settle down' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology).

A 4 South eclipse last manifested on December 4, 2002 @12Sag (conjunct US natal Ascendant) and a 4 South next occurs on December 14, 2020 @23Sag.

Additionally, any Solar Eclipse in Scorpio offers the cosmic gifts of 'probing insight' for discerning the 'root causes of karmic situations and problems' but it's up to individuals to use such knowledge for gaining karmic progress or not. However, control of the darker side of Scorpio is imperative in order to create positive outcomes from the events and conditions brought by the eclipse otherwise via Scorpio and its ruler Mars, sub-ruler Pluto, hatred, cruelty, sexual perversions, vengeance, and the primal urge for retribution can override humanity's capacity for forgiveness.

So how do you think America's Flower Power generation is managing the karmic retribution vs forgiveness imperative so far?

The GOP Has No Alternative to Obamacare Because the ACA WAS The Republican Plan - video

In March 2010, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law by President Obama while transit Neptune sat upon America's natal Moon in Aquarius, aka, We the People, and the Great Conjunction/s of the inflationary/speculator/wastrel pair, Jupiter and Neptune, had sprinkled dreamy fairy dust over our Moon and hearts all through 2009, Mr. Obama's first year in office. Little sense of reality prevailed and big promises were made and believed by the more gullible among us.

Nowadays, reality continues to hide beneath the waves of deceptive Neptune strong in its own murky sign of Pisces as Mr. Trump readies his administration and enjoys his own Jupiter Return/s to its natal position of 17 Libra. And yes, the delusional Jupiter-Neptune imprint applies to Trump's first term in office as well since the next Great Conjunction doesn't occur until *Saturn and Pluto meet @22Cap46 on January 12, 2020:

For more progressive reports and commentary visit Thom Hartmann.

Read the 2012 SCOTUS decision on the ACA.

As you know, when astrological Neptune is associated with health issues a wrong diagnosis can be the result. Let's hope for the sake of all Americans that Mr. Trump, Tom Price, and other administration officials determined to repeal and/or reform the ACA give us a new and improved prescription for what ails us.

*We remain under the influence of the last Saturn-Pluto conjunction which perfected once @27Lib36 on November 8, 1982 during the first term of the Reagan administration. Air sign Libra was about ideas and ideology; their next conjunction in 2020 in pragmatic Earth will be about consolidation and bringing to fruition a draconian ideology which will soon be cavorting about the Rose Garden like little nazi fairies. But I doubt they'll look like this:

Transit Saturn and the United Arab Emirates (Dec 2, 1971); plus, Nixon's Golden Error

1971 Solar Eclipses: 9 Old South ends, 9 New South begins

For astrological purposes, a previous post details the proclamation of December 2, 1971 which created the United Arab Emirates. The federation, now in the news, is one of four Arab member states in the anti-ISIL/ISIS coalition.

The UAE proclamation date seems fairly auspicious falling within the 9 New South Saros Series of Solar Eclipses which first manifested on August 20, 1971 @27Leo (conjunct the Descendant in the UAE natal horoscope and thus prominently angular.)

Now, in February 2015, transit Saturn @3Sag conjoins the UAE's natal Neptune (the 'grim reality' or 'wish come true' transit) while opposing natal Saturn, a period when authority is challenged by another authority. Therefore, the UAE's Saturn-Neptune opposition of paranoia is being activated in a fearsome way by karmic Saturn so that reaping what's been sown may become prominent as the past catches up with leadership (Saturn; MC/IC)--on one level in the sphere of security measures. Plus, citizens of the region may be seriously affected with tr Saturn soon to oppose UAE natal Moon.

Hopefully other planetary influences will mitigate the Saturnian picture and provide protection for the good people of the UAE no matter how their leaders proceed to act or not act for a natal Sun-Neptune conjunction when activated by tr Saturn denotes a time of persistence and consolidation alternating with frustration and delay.

Usury vs the American People

Another event of historical importance occurred in 1971 and was influenced by the ending of the 9 Old South Saros Series, the Pre-Natal Eclipse of President 'Tricky Dick' Nixon's economic measures concerning gold convertibility. As of 1971, our debts became ever-lastingly unpayable into infinity....perpetual debt.

There's even a name for it: Nixon Shock and much has been written in hindsight about its deleterious effects on the US economy, a collosal mistake as noted in a commentary published in Forbes on August 15, 2011, the 40th anniversary of the profound changes Nixon proclaimed as directed by the secretive Fed (the central world bank). To quote, August 15, 1971 "...marked the beginning of the worst 40 years in American economic history." {Edit June 5, 2023: The article link is no longer Live for me, but if you know your way around Forbes Magazine perhaps you can locate it, if interested.

So Fare Well, 9 Old South, you did your part to serve Planet Earth before your energies ran slap dab out.

Wait. What? A beginning described by an ending? Yes, 'twas an ending influenced by a never-ending monetary end to being able to end one's debt burden? Well, eclipses do herald change so thanks, privately owned 'Federal Reserve' and your cat's paw, the White House. Eclipse conditions of 1971 demonstrate that our debt-based economy is wrong on a cosmic level as well as on every other level of decency, fairness, and justice that can be named.

Included in the Forbes feature is a link to Nixon's Sunday night address from the Venusian Oval Office on August 15, 1971 during which he slipped in the announcement of the ending of the post-WWII Bretton Woods era...ah hah! There's our 'ending' and it's proven to be a very unfortunate cluster 'ef', as you know. And note that the current Jupiter Rx period--Jupiter, the banker, the politician, guru--activates August 15, 1971's Sun @22Leo and Venus @19Leo; tr Saturn has recently conjoined--and will again--1971's Neptune @00Sag, ruled by moneybags Jupiter, which suggests to me the 'grim face of reality' for the US economy and US workers but a 'dream come true' for global bankers and those they fund and enable to oppress us with perpetual debt and usury interest rates while implementing their 'new economic order'.

Yes, how wonderful the Fed's grand promises that were to result from the monetary changes of 1971: more American jobs, smaller trade deficit, avoiding recessions, international competitiveness for US workers (job loss), price stability, and more--which all now show themselves as the lies and fraud they were from the start. And the liars--including mouthpiece Nixon--knew it all along.

Of Phony Drug Wars and Neptune

Saturn-Neptune in America: Addicted to Wars, Both Real and Phony

by Jude Cowell

For decades in America, many people have intuited or experienced the phoniness and corruption behind our alleged 'War on Drugs' as officially declared by one Richard Nixon on June 17, 1971. PBS' Frontline provides a timeline if you should be so curious about this tool of oppression.

There are other sources on the topic, however, and here's an excerpt from one of them with its link posted underneath:

"In 1909, Walter Rathenau-" (of General Electric) "-said the following about the Committee of 300": "Three hundred men, all of whom know one another, direct the economic destiny of Europe and choose their successors from among themselves."

"For nearly a century the British East India and Dutch East India Companies gathered fortunes from their opium trade with Asia and now through the Committee of 300 they continue to wage phony drug wars around the world today."

For more info visit the Committee of 300 conspiracywiki page.


If you look at a horoscope for June 17, 1971--perhaps set for noon, since it was an announcement to the public by the president--you'll see a retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio, one of the 'drug signs', conjunct Neptune Rx @1Sag03, a planet whose connection to drugs and sub-rulership of the other 'drug sign', Pisces, is well known. This pairing seems to indicate more of an expansion (Jupiter) of drugs (Neptune) rather than a restriction. Plus, Neptune's karmic Sabian Symbol for '1Sag' is: "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire." Curious, no? Especially in light of the lucrative drug trafficking the US military (and the CIA) allegedly carried on during the Vietnam War--and since.


In Astrology we might say that Governmental Saturn = Real and Controlling, Fraudulent Neptune = Secret and Phony. And this difficult planetary pair's influence goes back to our nation's founding with its invisible/shadow (Neptune) laws/government (Saturn) vibes that have only become more pronounced in recent years as global governance promoters peek out from the shadows into the camera's bright glare.

If such conspiratorial drug trafficking allegations are true--and we're not just being paranoid--no wonder the phony, corrupt "War on Drugs" prohibition with New York's draconian Rockefeller Drug Laws and other statutes that ignore the health issues underlying drug use keep grinding on and purposefully creating in the US a massive prison population and the broken families that go with it.

Remembering the Kent State Massacre of May 4 1970

Since we're now in the contentious throes of the Cardinal Square between generational planets Uranus the rebel and Pluto the wealth manipulator (uprisings, protests, and strikes until 2015--ancient v new), here is an excerpt from my 2010 post concerning the Kent State Massacre of May 4, 1970 with today the tragic event's 43rd anniversary--I remember watching in on TV and despising Richard Nixon:

"Linking 1970 with 2010 is a major factor: the revolutionary Uranus/Pluto midpoint 00Lib06 sitting atop the US natal chart ('Sibly' version: 5:10 pm LMT) which gives us a telling picture worth considering on May 4, 2010, the Kent State Massacre's 40th anniversary, because Uranus and Pluto are in process of squaring off now."

If you're curious, here's the post which shows the May 4, 1970 horoscope with details.

Dancing w Thomas Jefferson June 4, 2011 (video)

No Dancing Allowed, Says Saturn!

by Jude Cowell

Since the early days of America's existence, the powers that be have built up founder and Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson to be our Icon of Freedom. Indeed, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the lunar Tidal Basin in Washington DC contains an imposing statue of our American Sphinx, a Francophile who must have turned a musical toe or two while enjoying the Parisian society of his day.

Video below: On Saturday, June 4, 2011, another 'dance-off' occurred only 3 days after a Solar Eclipse manifested @ 11Gem02 atop the Jefferson Memorial's dedication ceremony Saturn 9Gem21. The Memorial's dedication was held in 1943 during the transit of America's natal Uranus 8Gem55 (planet of freedom, independence, rebellion, revolution, and disruptive protests) by authoritarian and lawmaker Saturn.

President Franklin Roosevelt presided over the Memorial dedication on April 13, 1943, the 200th anniversary of Mr. Jefferson's birth (April 13, 1743 NS; Shadwell, Virginia; birth time usually listed as 1:53 pm LMT but is conflicted/unverified.)

May and June 2011

With rebellious Awakener Uranus (America's planetary totem) now @ '4Aries', it is interesting to note that the noon horoscope of the dedication ceremony of April 13, 1943 for the Thomas Jefferson Memorial now has transiting Uranus crossing the Midheaven of the chart (The Goal; Aspirations) and bringing disruptive dancing By, Of, and For The People with it while we remember and honor the principles of freedom and independence which Jefferson embedded and ingrained within our national documents!

The 1943 Saturn to US natal Uranus transit sounds suspiciously similar to current events such as being arrested (restrictive Saturn) for dancing in a public memorial space (free-wheeling Uranus.) Ramping up the political stakes, the US is now in the midst of a (30-year cycle) Saturn Return with the third of three conjunctions occurring on August 28, 2011.

Yes, a Saturn-to-Uranus transit occurred under Nixon's watch in the 1970s along with a reciprocal transit: Uranus to US natal Saturn (14Lib48.) Obviously, dynamics of the Saturn-Uranus dichotomy (status quo v progress; old structures fall so the new can be established; stagnation v reform) were heavily highlighted during the Nixonian era. As you know, Nixon removed the US from the gold standard which, among other things, made full payment of the citizenry's debts difficult if not impossible.

Here are brief descriptions of the reciprocal Saturn-Uranus transits of the early 1970s; Saturn and Uranus were precisely opposing one another on Election Day 2008 which marks the Obama administration with their brittle vibrations:

Saturn to n Uranus: circumstances restrict personal freedom and independence and attempts to take new approaches are stymied or delayed; unorthodox methods are nixed by authority; frustration results from a lack of planning; endless red tape creates delays but don't give up since thoughtful and careful organization can still win the day. (Or, Win the Future, as you prefer.)

Uranus to n Saturn: circumstances challenge or bring change to areas governed by tradition, rules, regulations, and laws as re-evaluation and review become necessary. These areas may be considerably altered while retaining the basic structures of society.

Fast forward to 2011, and it's tradition and stability on the chopping block as Pluto now deconstructs Capricornian systems and forms and topples world leaders and economies, and our national Saturn Return highlights the debt ceiling impasse now challenging America's ability to pay her debts if the nation's credit limit is not raised by August 2, 2011, as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner insists it must be...or we'll be in for a world o'hurt which may crash the remnants of a shaky global economy.

Yet total global financial collapse of the old is just what the New World Order ordered so their carefully planned agenda seems to be running on schedule.

Meanwhile, all this makes me want to dance the night away with Thomas Jefferson who warned us against many policies (standing army, foreign wars, a debilitated press, etc) now used and bedeviled by the Utopian Usurpers among us whose best ideas include criminal activities such as the resource plundering and population control allowed by endless war and brash anti-sovereignty invasions.

Muse against the babylon system of pop culture

Seeing mega-rock band Muse on TV a few times had not fully alerted me to the fact that they sing against the mindless babylon system of pop culture and the thought control of the New World Order. Yet how they got where they are in the music industry eludes me unless they sang less political lyrics in their early days, sold a bunch of records, and later brought out their opposition to global elite machinations. Perhaps a more democratic internet marketing helped their rise in popularity before the bigwigs caught on to their intentions.

"Take the red pill"! they tell their fans which could be similar to the red pill my friends and I took years ago while living in DC during the horrendous Nixon regime. Well, hopefully the band's music will aid new generations in learning to resist the NWO platform before purchasing their next Gaga album. You've noticed her hair-over-one-eye Illuminati shout-out, right? And Madonna before her? Their satanic themes are impossible to miss. But they do make mega-millions for record execs and their backers.

Well, be that as it may, now that I know what Muse is up to, this former child of rock music is all for it so posting one of their videos on Stars Over Washington seems quite the order of the day!


Update a few minutes later: here's a video just discovered where young people show they're awake to the Clinton-Bush-Obama trio of global elitists who do not care about poor people or the working class of America (which is not to give Poppy NWO Bush or those before him a free pass by any means!)

Watch the lady host's reaction as someone in her earpiece yells at her to interrupt the bit of truth erupting on-air!

The Fed meets today, Jupiter-Neptune, and Plunder

Danny Schechter, whose documentary Plunder: The Crime of Our Time is being shown and re-shown on LINK TV these days (do catch it, if you can) has written an excellent article on the Wall Street Collapse 3 years later.

Comparing Wall Street's collapse and the current 'recovery' talking points the American public is being treated to with the BP-Gulf Oil Gusher's mysteriously disappearing oil, Mr. Schechter gives an overview of what was being written in 2007 along with his views on the topic, August 2010.

At the moment, I'm looking at a sunrise chart for 'Nixon ends debt redemption' when paying off debts became impossible, thanks to Tricky Dick and his pals. The date was August 14, 1971, in the midst of another bubbly, inflationary Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune.

Here are the dates and degrees of the speculation pair's meet-up which began a new cycle of their financial scheming (they are near conjunction in the NYSE natal chart: Jupiter 22Lib57 Rx, Neptune 27Lib42 Rx in 3rd house, May 17, 1792 10:00 am LMT, NYC):

1. Feb 1, 1971 @ 2Sag47
2. May 22, 1971 @ 1Sag44
3. Sep 16, 1971 @ 00Sag37

All these early Sag degrees relate to war.

Then during Reagan's terms there was a Great Conjunction as well but only once, on January 19, 1984 @ 00Cap01 (!) I believe I've blogged on this one before in my post on Reagan's signing of the Garn-St. Germain Act when he stated, "I think we've hit the jackpot!" It was a happy Jupiter Return (15Scorpio) for Ronald Reagan and pals.

Then there was the presidency of Bill Clinton, a topic I've never properly covered here. 'His' Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurred on Jan 9, 1997 @ 27Cap09 - conjunct US natal Jup/Nep = n Pluto: far reaching speculations; plans unreasonable beyond measure; a great loss. (Ebertin.)

Well, I know President Obama's 3 conjunctions of Jupiter and Neptune in May-July-December of 2009 have been covered here ad nauseum so I won't wax on (especially since internet service goes off and on this week due to work on my neighborhood's lines) except to say that the planetary pair of speculation, bubbles, and inflation has marked the presidencies of Nixon, Reagan, Clinton, and Obama.

(Clinton's presidency also enjoyed a fabulous windfall of Jupiter and Uranus, the scientific, technological pair: Feb 16, 1997 @ 5AQ56 conjunct US natal South Node.)

But what of George W. Bush? What monetary (Jupiter) pairing marked his terms?

Plutocratic Jupiter-Pluto whose Great Conjunction of December 11, 2007 @ 28Sag24 timed one of the Fed's interest rate reduction meetings-announcements.

And they are meeting again today as I type so if they follow their usual pattern an announcement will occur today around @2:15 pm edt during a Jupiter Hour...

ASC 22Sco38 = Saturn/NN: pulling back; suffering under difficulties with others.

Sun 18Leo01 (Venus' position on 9/11/01 and the degree of the August 11, 1999 Solar Eclipse) is focal point within a Fist of God pattern with the separating Jupiter-Pluto square at its base...

Jupiter/Pluto = Sun: accumulation of personal power and influence; successful use of strong personality power; doing well with all resources; keeping things in one's own grip; the creation of magical effects. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey.)

'Magical effects' for Mr. Obama to tout us into confidence? I might be okay with that if only it worked! But I fret that it's all just another bubbly scenario floating on top of toxin-infused water.

And of course, you know that the titanic Cardinal T-Square undergirds everything these days and includes today's Venus-Mars conjunction in Libra, Saturn in Libra, Jupiter 2Ari52 Rx, and Uranus 00Ari06 Rx -- all pointing toward Pluto 3Cap05 Rx in 2nd house at 2:15 pm in Washington DC.

The 9th house Moon 26AQ59 (just past last evening's New Moon in Leo) opposes both US natal Moon and tr Neptune 27AQ34 Rx which sits upon US natal Moon...fraud and lies to the people! Another Fed pronouncement is on the way...
