Saturn-Neptune Cycles 1989 and 2026

The Many Meanings Within The Saturn-Neptune Cycle

by Jude Cowell

When in August 2022 a fussy post appeared here concerning the Saturn-Neptune combination's fact vs fiction energies and the duo's association with 'deep state' (Neptune-Saturn) concepts, the upcoming Great Conjunction of Saturn and Neptune at the Cardinal World Point of 00Aries, the Aries Point, was not mentioned. Naturally, this happens to be the Spring Equinox point, aka, the Aries Ingress, where years begin in keeping with Mars-ruled Aries as the starting point of many earthly events.

Plus, as you know, the four Cardinal World Points of zero Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn are where events tend to manifest on the physical plane, events which possess global consequences. In other words, Aries Point involvement is a big deal, and the heavyweight planets Saturn and Neptune have karmic implications for progress, setbacks, or, more likely, some blending of both. For such is life on Earth.

Meanwhile, the combined energies of the planetary pair reveal a multitude of meanings in Astrology depending on how and where the pair appears and is analyzed. And according to Reinhold Ebertin, the midpoint of Saturn-Neptune in a horoscope forms the 'illness axis' while secret (Neptune) government (Saturn) has often been gleaned from the pair's workings in political realms along with certain -isms such as Socialism, Bolshevikism, Marxism, Communism, etc - all of which are manmade concepts and propagandistic labels most often used to vilify one's opponents and promote social division, aka, the divide-and-conquer strategy so popular in US politics.

Additional potentials for the Saturn-Neptune pairing include false hopes that lead to disillusionment (A. Oken), plus, renunciation, asceticism, issues of poor-sick-or-depressed individuals and our social safety net programs, neuroses, undermining circumstances, distrust, insecurity, dissatisfaction, mood changes, peculiar characters, self-preoccupation, and/or idealism vs materialism concerns (R. Ebertin's The Combination of Stellar Influences #ad).

Then on a side note, it may be worth mentioning that in the November 1989 horoscope, the Moon @24Tau28 conjuncts the natal Midheaven (Goal Point) and demon star Algol of one Donald Trump - and transit Nemesis @22Sag49 conjuncts his natal Moon-South-Node conjunction of emotional alienation. Placing these Trumpian cosmic time links into context, period 3 began in or about 2013 and continues until February 2026. And the amazing thing? Four days prior to conjunction #3, it came to pass that on November 9, 2013, Donald Trump was in Moscow promoting his franchise known as the Miss Universe Pageant, and was, as I put it in a 2019 post, "making puppy eyes at Vladimir Putin." Well, since then we've observed how their love affair proceeded - to the detriment and undermining of our country and the entire world.

So now in 2023, as the Collective approaches the last years of the duo's current cycle, we may wish to cast our thoughts toward 2026, when solid Saturn's demand for realism and authenticity next meet wispy if inspirational Neptune's fraud and deception tendencies for the first time since their three conjunctions in 1989 in the 10-to-12-degree-range of Saturn-ruled Capricorn.

Below is a tri-wheel of all three 1989 Conjunctions of Saturn-Neptune, a planetary pair also containing rational vs irrational vibes. Timings are as close to accurate as my Solar Fire v9 software gives me. And note that 36 years divided by 3 = about 12 years, as mentioned above, so we're now in the third phase of their 1989 cycle dated November 13, 1989 until February 20, 2026 with reality 'star' Trump acting as America's orange albatross prancing about on what he hopes will again become the world stage of fame and fortune:

A Union of Neptune's Faith with Saturn's The Establishment?

On February 20, 2026, a new 36-year cycle of their concentrated, combined energies begins so that a DC Horoscope may be set up and studied if one is curious about societal, political, and even religious issues via a horoscope that's 'good for' approximtely 36 years!

You'll note that the above horoscope is set for Washington DC as a symbol of America, and for those who use the July 4, 1776 5:09/10 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania horoscope to symbolize our nation, the Saturn-Neptune Conjunction of 2026 lands upon the IC Point of the chart with its Domestic Scene and Foundational implications and a suggestion of 4/10 Security concerns. Additionally, we should admit that a major reform of government seems a likely possibility along with 'new world order' implications (as in, 1776 - 2026?).

And since I marked the above horoscope, I've honed in the time of the exact 2026 conjunction to a more accurate 11:52:48 am est with Ascendant 17Gem45 - still with the chaotic 10th house Uranus of Donald Trump rising - his guiding planet - with its rounded-up Sabian Symbol of "Two Chinese Men Talking Chinese in a Western Crowd" which speaks of alien relationships of which Herr T has enjoyed gracious plenty, while the Symbol of his natal Moon-1989 Nemesis conjunction clocks in with "A Chinese Laundry."

Saturn-Neptune and Trump's deep state shadow government

Trump Forms Deep State Shadow Government for 2024

Why? So that Trumpians will be ready to rage and misrule when their orange idol grabs the reins again!

by Jude Cowell

Through the years, when it comes to the form and structure of the US government, many Americans and various politicians have heard or used such terms as secret, invisible, or shadow government, along with the Republican propaganda term, "deep state," so popular in recent years. Such mysterious doings the labels conjure, ably stirring up anxiety within the public! Of course, "deep" relates to oceanic Neptune, while astrological Saturn rules over the realms of government, law, and business, and the extent of an actual "deep state" in the US refers to the large number of career civil servants required to keep our government systems up and running. Not very mysterious - more like dull and everyday.

So now in 2022, the US remains saddled with a former president who imagines himself still in power, and who was "fraudulently" kicked out of the White House in January 2021 by President Joe Biden, he says. But in fact, if we look up "sore loser" in the dictionary, there's an orange-hued mugshot of Donald Trump whose underhanded behavior and love of taking revenge defines the term!

The Dark Shadow of a Shadow Government

Now earlier today, we discussed yesterday's FBI search of Mar-a-Lago so the accusations are flying, with "deep state" showing up already (see above headline - from July). These disturbing circumstances, which include Trump's Lunar and Venus Returns yesterday (!) have put me in a mood to repost what Michael Munksey provides in the form of the Hegelian Dialectic in the realms of Politics and Business (in America, politics is the business) in his book, Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets (#ad) concerning the realism-vs-fantasy combination of Saturn and Neptune.

Saturn-Neptune potentials for expression in political and societal realms include:

Thesis: delusions among the real leadership (aka, 'shadow government' and the aims of their misguided ideologies - jc); efficient use of expert advice; mistaken religious leaders; long lasting programs that have no real purpose; misuse of law officers; policies which restrict spies.

Antithesis: leaders deceive about the exercise of control; respected people involved in questionable practices; a leader capitulates; deficient business practices exposed; reliable equipment failures.

Well, I don't know about you, but to me most of the Saturn-Neptune potentials listed here describe perfectly the misguided, loose-cannon style of the orange blighter, his wide girth stuck to the bottom of America's Roman sandal like a big fat wad of sour, smelly bubblegum that only grows more problematic and unsavory with age.

The Deep State: The Unelected Shadow Government - video

In 8 minutes 44 seconds, here is John W. Whitehead explaining America's Deep State which is what Astrology has called the Secret, or Invisible (Neptune) Government (Saturn) as seen in US natal charts that are set for late afternoon of July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA.

Personally I tend to use 5:09 pm LMT for America because it places two of the Cardinal World Points on the MC (Goal; Aspirations)/IC (Home; Endings) points. This also places 1776 Saturn (14Libra) and Neptune (22Virgo) on each side of the 00Libra MC which suggests that the now-named 'Deep State' or a Secret/Invisible Government was established from America's founding. And my suspicion has been that the 1776 out-of-bounds Pluto (27Capricorn) was and remains a significator of power elite bosses (then and now) who pull the strings--from abroad:


Of course, the karmic duo of Saturn and Neptune also involves such systems as Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Capitalism--all the oppressive -isms you'd care to name as mentioned in yesterday's (related) post concerning the natal chart and work of H.G. Wells, 'new world order' promoter.

Horoscope: Libra Lunar Eclipse March 23, 2016 Washington DC

Brief Astro-Notes on the March 23, 2016 Lunar Eclipse @3Libra

by Jude Cowell

First, here's the Lunar Eclipse horoscope set for March 23, 2016 (Sun 3 degrees past Aries Point) manifesting at 8:00:48 am EDT the White House Washington DC with Aries rising and Mars as chart-ruler; a Mercury Hour with Full Moon @3Libra17 in 6th house (Wash DC):

No rigid Fixed energy, all active Fire and Cardinal/Cadent with Jupiter still leading the choo choo as the engine of a Locomotive pattern of executive ability and determination toward success (Tierney). Jupiter Rx is here @16Vir23 (North Node 21Vir50 stationing near US natal Neptune (grand spirit, large plans, fraud, bubbles. Through conjunction, the Jupiter-Neptune pairing echoes at least three things: Rubio's and Cruz's Jupiter-Neptune signatures though Rubio's is stronger), Bernie Sanders' Sun-North-Node-Neptune trio (drawing great crowds thrilled by a vision of a 'great future'), President Obama's natal Mars (hidden motivations, actions), and fixed star Denebola, keyphrases: out of the mainstream; and/or to go against society (Brady.)

Note that Jupiter turns Direct on May 9, 2016 @13Vir15:19, quite a mystical degree described by the Sabian Symbol, A Family Tree. The Jolly One once Direct will have another meet-up with the North Node, a Jupiterian point of encounters with the public) and the Jupiter-NN signature will again be triggered. In Politics, we may expect legal consequences from treaties with allies to be in the news along with interference in legal matters by religious organizations or people. Closed legal societies should probably be in the news more often than they are as they manipulate from behind locked doors--perhaps their actions will be investigated prior to November 8th. Disruptive imports/export issues and our hampered legal system will continue to be problematic so prepare for more erroneous decisions and errors in judgment.

Now with the Sun @3Ari17, Mars rules or disposits the Sun, another reason to closely examine Mars in Sagittarius in the natural house of Scorpio, the 8th (big business, spying, corporatism, shared resources, transformation, death, the occult) so be aware of males (Mars) between te ages of 25--35, give or take a year or two. A financial "Game of Cricket" is being played and it's amusing to me how often the sound of a cricket chirping has turned up in popular entertainment (ex: Baskets).

Chart-ruler Mars, in Sagittarius and ruling its domicile, 8th house--some would say, intercepted so perhaps unconscious) makes only one Ptolemaic (major) aspect in the chart--8th house Mars squares nebulous Neptune (11th house of Groups-Associations/Hopes), strong in its own sign of oceanic, bottle-chugging Pisces. Dissolution, dismay, and contagion abound for collectively Mars SQ Neptune brings potentials for: rationalized actions (to escape the consequences of guilt, one assumes), waste of time and energy, laziness, projection of negative traits onto others before they can label you first (ex: demigoguing), risk-taking, even perils or danger.

As for July 4, 1776 (a date with meaning that always catalyzes from behind the scenes), our national Saturn-Neptune midpoint @3Libra ensnares the March 23, 2016 Lunar Eclipse at its 3rd degree of Libra. We may find info in the midpoint pictures thus formed using Ebertin, Tyl, and Munkasey to guide us:

Saturn-Neptune = Moon = Sun = Mercury: women's diseases, chronic or acute; pessimism; feeling inhibited; an emotional drain; increased drug dependency; drama and illusion; effective practices are deceptive; activities serving no real purpose; painstaking attention to hard work; strangely nervous; secret or hidden government activities.

Saturn-Neptune = poor, sick, depressed, suffering people; social programs for the needy; materialism v idealism; deluded leadership; deceptive leaders; respected person involved in questionable activities; misusing law officers; worthless policies; denials of responsibility; socialism, communism, marxism, bolshevikism, capitalism, etc. By the eclipse, Saturn and Neptune will have parted from their recent and ongoing square, a period of false hopes and promises, disillusion, disappointment; an imposition of reality is needed and will be supplied around the time of the September 1, 2016 Solar Eclipse in discriminating Virgo. This 'coming down to earth' quality will be noticeable into 2017 and the first months of the next presidency.

Not to forget powerful Pluto @17Cap18 at Midheaven (the Goal Point) which should be noted though it's been done a zillion times on SO'W: this is the degree of the Enlightenment planets Uranus and Neptune three times in 1993 when they met in Great Conjunction for a modern 'new world order' horoscope. This forms the "the big picture demands a certain course of action which must be followed, very little option to do otherwise" equation (Tyl) with stealthy, wealthy Pluto the manipulator triggering their conjunction and adding his evil magic wand.

Please enlarge the image to read my notes on the chart. Mea culpa! this post originally had quite a bit more chart details especially concerning Campaign 2016 candidates but Blogger ate that effort (waste!) and now my schedule doesn't include an attempt to compose the same text over again since as usual I have no notes to work from. Only the horoscope which you see before you.

Edward Snowden on America's Secret Government (plus, Mars and Bacon)

Somehow I had missed this informative excerpt from an interview of November 2014 conducted by former 2016 candidate Lawrence Lessig with shunned NSA official and exile Edward Snowden. Being a presidential election year you would think that such topics would be prominent in our current public discourse! Yet listen for surveillance topics within the current presidential debate cycle and you'll hear little more than crickets. Ask Trump, Bush, Cruz, Rubio, Clinton, or even Sanders to comment on or describe America's secret government or to uphold its antidote government by consent of the governed and evasions and diversions begin though you might get a fevered rise out of Sanders or Trump (to give us the impression that our concerns are 'being heard') while studied non-responses from the rest must suffice. They'll have to leave it there, as their bosses often advise them to say...

This interview with Ed Snowden seemed totally appropriate since the Saturn-Neptune square is upon us all for as you know, mundane Saturn = government, law, business while mundane (as if!) Neptune = secret, invisible, illegitimate, fraudulent. My opinions is that we're brainless fools if we allow the 'ruling class' to tell us we can't even discuss aloud such topics as surveillance, illegalities, and anti-constitutional provisions since our lives and the futures of our children are closely and adversely affected. Too many of our officials are in the raptor's grip and trying desperately to hold on to their positions of power and their generous incomes but constantly act in breach of the public trust and contract. So few of them actually represent the interests of the American public that it would be hilariously amusing were it not so riotously tragic.

Now I wonder if the '30Cap' Sabian Symbol we spoke of earlier will be part of the secrets to be revealed under the auspices of Mars' retrograde period during April into October 2016 which takes us right up to the position of transiting Mars on Election Day 2016 and "A Secret Business Conference" which may possibly be made inconveniently public? For a deeper look, I do feel certain that the symbol of the Illumination Point for '30Cap'--right across the axis at '30Cancer' may be informative for it is, "A Daughter of the American Revolution," a reference to our past political revolution that inspires me to begin quoting (some of which you may have read here in prior posts or elsewhere) as I think of how 2016 candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has been calling for one:

The American Revolution "was not a revolt against an existing indigenous system of government but rather an anti-colonial movement against the English"...that "involved a change in political authority rather than a transformation in the power structure of society. Therefore it does not conform to the model of other revolutions.

The full revolutionary dynamic of the American Revolution can be stated as follows:

Heretical occult inspiration: Scottish Jacobite Templarism (via Gosnold/Bacon)

Intellectual expression: Weishaupt/Franklin/Jefferson/Paine

Political expression: Washington

Physical consolidation: Jackson

The American Revolution brought about a constitutional transformation that ended Britain's colonial rule and created republicanism, the political expression of Templar Masonry. The new Atlantis of America was a Templar-created Masonic State.

The revolutionary dynamic of the ideas behind the American Revolution can be stated as follows:

Heretical occult inspiration: *New Atlantis

Intellectual expression: Illuminism

Political expression: Republicanism

Physical expression: Conquest/westward expansion."

And so the astrological puzzle remains: what structural and political reforms will America's first-ever Pluto Return/s all through 2022 perpetrate? And since the Return of powerful, wealthy Pluto to its 1776 position will soon begin triggering our national Mercury-Pluto opposition (Cancer/Capricorn) of propaganda, secrets, spies, and surveillance, will the spying industry grow by then into the beast it now strives to be? Or has it already?

*New Atlantis by (Sir) Francis Bacon; for more information see Old and New Atlantis: a Mysterious Legend that won't fade.

Teddy Roosevelt: Invisible Government (Neptune-Saturn) and his Sun-Moon Blend

Invisible government, secret government, whatever we call it, our Saturn (planet of government, business, law) Neptune (invisible, secret, deceptive) psychos have been manipulating strings from behind the scenes since the beginning of this nation (from 'Mother' Britain, I suspect.) Even Teddy Roosevelt, an American aristocrat, admitted it though having him say it may have been a political ploy meant to release some steam building within the public cauldron:

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”

Theodore Roosevelt, April 19, 1906

Perhaps it's somewhat curious that Teddy Roosevelt's natal horoscope shows two dynamic T-Square patterns--one with his 3rd house Saturn in Leo as apex planet, the second with apex Neptune in its own sign of Pisces in his 10th house of Public Status and Career--and there are indications of falsehood and incorrect behavior (Venus-Jupiter = Neptune), and his well known ruthlessness is shown by Sun-Pluto = Saturn (Ebertin.) A Jupiter-Neptune square tends toward maudlin sentimentality, overindulgence, and promising more than can be delivered (politics!)

Of course, his Saturn-Pluto square denotes a dictatorial attitude and a life full of plots and intrigue so you may wish to view his bio and natal horoscope with its Watery (and very secretive) Sun Scorpio-Moon Cancer personality blend if you are unfamiliar with it.

Freemason Teddy was quite a doozy with his expansive, boasting, 'bully pulpit' Jupiter in talkative Gemini rising!

Harry Truman's NSA and Pluto's Covert Actions

Today as I consider the natal horoscope of the National Intelligence Agency (NSA) and its draconian collection of Americans' phone call and email data along with the natal chart of President Harry Truman, I think back to a few snippets that were posted here in October 2010, the gist of which actually concerns all three branches of surveillance and covert actions in the USA: the CIA, the FBI, and the NSA:

Posted: 15 Oct 2010 05:33 PM PDT

(GlobalResearch) – By assigning covert action roles to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), it is as if the White House and Congress had legitimized the Ku Klux Klan to operate globally. That’s because the CIA today resembles nothing so much as the “Invisible Empire” of the KKK that once spread terror across the South and Midwest. Fiery crosses aside, this is what the CIA is doing globally.


Allowing it to operate in secret literally gives the CIA the mythical Ring of Gyges. In Plato’s Republic, the owner of the ring had the power to become invisible at will. As Wikipedia puts it, Plato “discusses whether a typical person would be moral if he did not have to fear the consequences of his actions.” The ancient Greeks made the argument, Wikipedia says, that “No man would keep his hands off what was not his own when he could safely take what he liked out of the market, go into houses and lie with any one at his pleasure, kill or release from prison whom he would, and in all respects be like a god among men.” The CIA, like Hitler’s Gestapo and Stalin’s NKVD before it, has provided modern man the answer to this question. Its actions illuminate why all criminal entities, from rapists and bank robbers, to Ponzi scheme swindlers and murderers, cloak themselves in secrecy.

There are innumerable examples of how American presidents have authorized criminal acts without public discussion that the preponderant majority of Americans would find reprehensible. Example: it was President Lyndon Johnson who ordered the CIA to meddle in Chile’s election to help Eduardo Frei become president. If they had known, U.S. taxpayers might have objected to such a use of their hard-earned money to influence the outcome of another country’s elections. But the public is rarely let in on such illegal foreign policy decisions.

A Few Astro-Notes Concerning the NSA and Its Father, Harry Truman

The NSA formed when one of our Freemason Presidents, Harry Truman, signed a memorandum on October 24, 1952 at 10:45 am EST Washington DC; ASC 22Sag35, MC 28Sco55; 8th house Sun 1Sco10, Moon 11Cap37 conjunct 12th cusp of Politics, Karma, Self-Undoing, and Secret Enemies. Midpoint: Sun-Saturn = Neptune: inner peculiarities; mental, emotional, physical crises. Pluto 23Leo02 squared Harry Truman's natal Sun (18Tau39) denoting possible coercion and manipulation via threats to his power position and influence. Although, as a high ranking Freemason, our 33rd president may have been happily in cahoots with the formation of such an agency for the sake of the eventual implementation of Global Government. Leo and Taurus are, after all, Fixed signs of rigidity.

Plus, we must note that Truman was born under a Mercury-Pluto conjunction in very early Gemini, ruled by Mercury, planet of the senses such as sight and hearing. This resonates with America's natal Mercury-Pluto opposition of total surveillance and dealing with, hiding, and wielding secrets. Curiously, considering the current (staged!) debate on the Patriot Act, the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse @00Gem conjoined Truman's Pluto (00:24) and Mercury (1Gem16 Rx, both in natal 8th house of the Occult, Transformation, Corporatism, and Death--Harry did drop the first nuclear bomb though it had already been sanctioned by FDR) in the 14 South Series contains Mercury-Pluto themes of success once obsessive ideas are finally accepted (Brady). Not by me--I don't accept them. Do you? Let it sunset!

The 14S eclipse of 2012 was a major turning point for global society and manifested upon the sensitive degree of a Fixed Star in the constellation Pleiades, Alcyone (keywords: something to cry about and mystical but judgmental). Note: scroll a bit and type 'Eclipses' into the sidebar Search field and you'll find the May 20, 2012 horoscope set for Washington DC on the list.

Now at Truman's NSA signing, another transit relating to ego and goals of Truman's Sun is that transit Jupiter was Rx and in process of conjoining his natal Sun, a time of overconfidence when a culmination of something begun about 12 years before is being reached--in or around 1940 for Truman; this endeavor needed to be either elevated to a higher level or discontinued at that time (1952). A greater attainment of knowledge (ex: spying) is a major part of this Sun-Jupiter picture. Additionally, Jupiter nears Truman's natal Neptune (20Tau41--a Sun-Neptune conjunction for hiding-in-plain-sight-yet-veiled Harry) indicating a time of pretense, illusion, delusion, paranoia, and fanaticism. Sounds exactly like Washington DC in 2015, doesn't it?!

Since the attacks of 9/11/01, we've watched as the agency's anti-constitutional nature has grown and expanded since 1952 and most people agree that the NSA's dependence upon Pluto's cloak of invisibility has been undemocratic from the start.

As for the (June 1, 2015 midnight) sunset provision within the US Patriot Act (section 215), an Act that purports to legalize the massive data collection of US citizens' communications for no logical reason, transit Pluto remains in the neighborhood of the NSA's natal Moon in Capricorn bringing potentials for a deeper transformation through publicity and public scrutiny than the agency is comfortable with, intense turmoil within its own ranks and on Capitol Hill (thanks to Senators Rand Paul's and Ron Wyden's objections to the NSA's massive data collection aimed at innocent Americans as the agency misses finding real needles in real-problem haystacks because of an obsession with knowing it all and using personal info against us later), and their over-zealousness which may cause loss of at least some of their power and control--it is to be hoped for the sake of our right to privacy.

Not that they won't continue surveillance of the innocent under another guise...

Secret-Government related: The American Deep State (contains video)--and all of these topics cast a glaring spotlight upon America's 1776 Saturn in Libra and Neptune in Virgo, the signature of our Founding Fathers' secret/invisible/covert (Neptune) government (Saturn) with our natal out-of-bounds Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn grasping hidden reins of control and manipulation from the beginning of our nation's founding and before.

"Reality Is a Double Edged Sword" a Max Igan video (plus, Saturn-Neptune-Pluto)

From Maxwell Igan's Surviving the Matrix broadcasts:

Now Here's a Little Astrology

False (Neptune) reality (Saturn) is having its current midpoint (*Saturn-Neptune) transformed and deepened by transit Pluto which gives many activities in society certain vibes of 'denial of guilt from responsible parties.' Even the current "we broke Iraq but we can't fix it--the ISIS take over is not our fault" denials from the neocon warmongers of 2003 and from the Obama administration in 2014 fall very obviously under the influence of the Saturn-Neptune = Pluto picture--As Above, So Below.

And I'm quite convinced that you, dear reader, can easily think of several other situations and circumstances in the news and perhaps in your life where the above midpoint picture clearly applies.

*The midpoint picture shows that America's secret (Neptune) government (Saturn) is also being deeply affected by arch manipulator Pluto of Hidden Wealth fame and invisible helmet operations as Pluto (the saboteur and assassin) continues to oppose US natal planets in Cancer, most notably at this particular time, US natal Sun (leadership; the president) thus creating titanic contests of wills and 'power games with important consequences'. Additionally, the combination of austere Saturn (control) and insidious Neptune (contagion) also figures in with health care insurance meant to grab and control everyone's DNA (genetic manipulation), plus, Saturn-Neptune is known in Astrology as the 'illness axis' with Pluto also signifying surgery, toxins, and regeneration.

SCOTUS, the 6th Uranus-Pluto Cardinal Square, and a New Millennium

Progressive Uranus in Explosive Aries! 

This morning as I glanced at the horoscope of the next exact square (#6 of 7) between Uranus and Pluto (December 15, 2014 @12+ degrees of Aries/Capricorn), my eye was caught by a Think Progress headline: There's a Hidden Time Bomb in the Senate Rules That Will Go Off If a Supreme Court Justice Retires. How might the symbol for '13 Aries' link to the headline and its topic, above?

Because rounding up the degree of disruptive Uranus to 13 Aries gives a certain Sabian Symbol which may apply to the situation: "A Safely Concealed Bomb Fails to Explode" (Solar Fire software), or, as Dane Rudhyar puts it: "An Unexploded Bomb Reveals an Unsuccessful Social Protest." Keynote: An immature evaluation of the possibility of transforming suddenly the status quo.

And of course, the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square is the current phase of their Great Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s when 'social protest' was all the rage in US streets as it exploded across the globe on behalf of human rights; plus, the 'old order v new order' vibes of Uranus-Pluto have insinuated themselves into every institution these days. Can you feel it?

Now for more info on 13 Aries, Marc Edmund Jones adds: "An Unsuccessful Bomb Explosion." Keyword: IMPETUOUSNESS...positive expression: a dramatic rejection of any accomplishment falling at all short of a very deep or hallowed purpose; negative (unconscious/shadow side--jc): a waste of opportunity and a futile expenditure of self through vanity or petulance. Hmm. Sounds rather like some obstructive, politically motivated judge-appointee nomination hearings to me. And Capitol Hill denizens and shills do like their drama, don't they? Some have made it known that they prefer to govern by not governing.

Sadly for the rest of us, 99% of our politicians are in breach of the public trust and their "very deep or hallowed purpose" seems to be totalitarian control of a 'new order' Global Government based on 'higher' (secret) oaths they've taken which have little if anything to do with their oaths of office and absolutely nothing to do with carrying out 'the people's business.' Yes, We The People must seem only a quaint notion to varmints, brigands, pirates, thieves, psychopaths, and tyrants who imagine themselves kings of the world because they're brazen enough to plunder, pillage, and break societal taboos!

Here's something speculative from April 2013: Ginsburg Eyed as Possible Retirement from Supreme Court. Well, she's an admirable 80-something so it will be interesting to see what happens within the ranks of SCOTUS benchers in or by December 2014.

Another View of the 6th and 7th Uranus-Pluto Cardinal Square

On March 17, 2015, the last of the exact Cardinal Squares (Ari/Cap) occurs between Uranus and Pluto and considering the "progress" made in their 'new order' (Uranus) plans so long ago initiated, it is tempting to consider the Sabian Symbol for 2 Libra. Why? Because the period of time between exact square #6 and #7 (December 15, 2014 -- March 17, 2015) may be crucial to government plans whatever character they may ultimately turn out to have. And in America's often used  'Sibly' natal horoscope, the Midheaven (Mc) which represents The Goal/Aspirations Point of the American Experiment is very near by degree--'1 Libra'. One has only to move the chart from 5:10 pm LMT (Philadelphia, PA) on July 4, 1776 to a couple of minutes later to not only set the Mc for '2 Libra'--but '3 Libra' happens to be the midpoint of our nation's Saturn (15Lib) and Neptune (23Virgo).

Together there are many possible expressions for the Saturn-Neptune combination such as: secret or hidden (Neptune) government (Saturn), social programs, socialism, communism, capitalism and other -isms, suffering, martyrdom, illness, loss--you know the list. Well, the 6th square of  Uranus-Pluto morphs into the 7th square so let's check out the symbol for '2 Libra':

Rudhyar: "The Transmutation of the Fruits of Past Experiences Into the Seed-Realizations of the Forever Creative Spirit." 'Keynote: A repolarization of inner energies leading to a creative centralization of consciousness.'

In the occult, this may relate to Blavatsky's Secret Doctrine and mankind's evolution, yet it may apply more fully to the occult meanings of the numbers 6 and 7. Rudhyar continues: "Number 6 (Solomon's Seal) represents the synthesis of descending spirit and descending matter. It represents the fullness of all past efforts; within the six-fold fruition the seed may be found, the seventh.Outer activity is fulfilled (the Six Days of Creation in the first chapter of Genesis); and the Supreme Actor can be seen in His changelessness and therefore his transcending all-inclusiveness."

"All that was manifested in the plant is gathered in the hidden seed, which in due time becomes the foundation of a new cycle of existence. The fruit decays. For a brief moment the released seed may be seen; this is the 'seventh' period that becomes the creative power fathering a new cycle."

Rudhyar goes on but I shall close for now after reminding myself of the ceremony at the Washington Monument (our national phallic symbol meant for 'seeding' all those feminine goddesses sprinkled abundantly around the District of Columbia--how odd that George, the Father of Our Country, apparently fathered no children of his own!) on New Year's Eve December 31, 1999 when Bill and Hillary seeded the nation and the world into the New Millennium. UPDATE Jan 20, 2016: which to me means that consciously or unconsciously, Hillary (now a 2016 presidential candidate) and Bill Clinton 'seeded' every event and condition that has occurred in this, the New Millennium. A lady 'feminine goddess' president "fathering" our nation? Turn over the Great Seal of America to its covert side and there you'll find America's future.

"Operation Paperclip": Nazi Scientists to America--PBS clip

Nazis in America: After World War II--and Now?

by Jude Cowell

For years it's been known how after WWII, the US government secretly invited Nazi scientists to come and work in America as we fought against the Soviets in the Cold War--thus saving their murderous tushies from judgment at the Nuremberg Trials .

The following 5 min-57-sec PBS clip is from an interview with the author of the new book, *Operation Paperclip, Annie Jacobsen, speaking on the topic:

Well, I shall have to procure her book to discover how the author treats Hitler supporter Prescott Bush, the often-exalted NASA scientists (Nazis), and the morphing of Hitler's eugenicists into modern day 'geneticists' now bringing us 'progress' in the forms of nuclear bombs, clones, trans-humanism, genetically modified foods, and other Frankensteinian projects of frightening proportions.

Astrologically this is supported by America's Saturn-Neptune (secret or invisible government) tendencies especially if we use our 'Sibly natal horoscope' set for July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA, or another natal chart for that date with materialistic Saturn and idealistic Neptune at, near, or straddling the Midheaven of the chart, the Goals and Aspirations Point.

fyi: *Operation Paperclip is available in Kindle edition for $12.99. Amazon's Look Inside feature for the book is available as well.

Espionage and Sedition Acts of 1917 and 1918 (video)

Abuse of power by Washington has been a regular feature of our democracy by those who crave more control. The following 8-minute video-audio presents information on the Espionage Act of 1917, passed by Congress and signed into law the very same day by President Woodrow Wilson who had taken our nation into World War I barely 2 months before (after running on a 'peace' ticket while secretly pledging America to enter the war), and on the Sedition Act of 1918:

Espionage and Sedition Acts: Under the Auspices of Secret Government

Saturn (government; law; control) and Neptune (secret; invisible; spying) met in Great Conjunction once on August 1, 1917 @4Leo45 conjunct US natal North Node. Moon and NN were conjoined at 10Cap33 and 10Cap34 respectively, where underworld Pluto and his Cape of Invisibility now creeps. On August 1, 1917, Pluto @4Can45 was traveling amongst our nation's planets in Cancer (Venus, Jupiter, Sun...Mr. Underworld now opposes them) and was hitting two midpoints of note: Jupiter-Saturn (violent changes; restrictions) and Jupiter-Neptune (unreasonable plans; great losses--Ebertin.)

And of course you don't forget that the Obama administration is imprinted all through 2009 by the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Neptune, the speculator-grand-schemer pair with their conjunction/s precisely hitting US natal Moon @27AQ33...We the People.

Secrets Not So Secret For the People

Saturn-Neptune: Secrets Not So Secret For The People

by Jude Cowell

If you dare and have the time, here's a site that's new to me in case you wish to check out such topics as Who the new world order aggressors are and What their agenda's Something for the People which also links to Cutting Edge.

Cutting Edge provides a Timeline of events that most people remember but may not have realized their full significance while they were occurring. One such is the "Fall" of the Berlin Wall, an important timer on the road to the 'new world order' (or, 'new world economic order' as some call it including Pope John Paul the-whatever.) Apparently the Vatican is the chosen vessel of the new order's "religious" content as if that makes the slightest bit of sense to a Protestant like me! Plus, some say that the "Mark of the Beast" in Scripture is Sunday worship which doesn't jive at all with the 7th-day Sabbath keeping of this blogger or with that of other believers who take seriously the ministry of Jesus Christ.

Not to mention those of other faiths who worship on Fridays or on other days!

The solemnity of Saturday ("Saturn's Day") has not been changed by the Vatican, they just pretend it has and use the fact that almost all Protestant denominations misguidedly follow them into Sunday worship--24 hours too late! The Sabbath is a 24-hour window of Time through which we may see Eternity, all the way back to Earth's Creation Week and as such it has not changed or been changed from its Fourth Commandment sacredness which admonishes us to "Remember the Sabbath Day". In fact, Jesus rested in His tomb on the 7th-day Sabbath and arose on the First Day of the Week, the day of the Sun, the day the Vatican is determined that everyone will eventually observe--if they want to 'buy or sell'.

Planetary Markers of a 'new world order'

Now if you're an astrologer you know that on the night the Berlin Wall was torn down (November 9, 1989), the *Great Conjunction/s of Saturn and Neptune were occurring (from 10 to 12 Capricorn, where transiting Pluto--the Pope; the Secret Hand--now treads. This creates a midpoint picture which links 1989 with current day so let's consider its potentials for manifestation while remembering that the pair of Saturn-Neptune denotes such things as Communism, Socialism, Bolshevikism, Capitalism, Materialism v Spiritualism, secret/invisible government, martyrs, poor and depressed people, suffering, leaders who deceive, strong v weak, etc--and walls (Saturn) dissolving (Neptune):

1989 Saturn-Neptune = tr Pluto 2013+: rejection of responsibility and denial of guilt by guilty parties; new ideas on evolution upset long-held but weaker historical theories; punishment for those who've let decay and decadence persist (the IRS' spend thrifty parties and dance videos? A Joy Coach?? jc); feeling downtrodden; tremendous fear of loss; fear.

And of course, emotional manipulation especially via fear is one of the main tools by which propagandists sway the public toward acceptance of a 'new world order' in which, as we've already seen in Newtown, CT, our children are not safe from their gun-toting grasp.


Further reading may be found concerning what was the next Planetary Marker of a new world order, the Great Conjunction/s of the Age of Enlightenment Planets, Uranus and Neptune, which conjoined in Capricorn all through 1993 and hinted at "smug or strong-armed paternalism" vibes of totalitarian control. Here are a few astro-notes and the primary natal horoscope I use to study the NWO in our era.

Speaking of our children not being safe from these reptiles, the 1993 chart particularly pertains to the presidency of Bill Clinton who presided over the Siege at Waco (military force used to kill innocent US citizens including children--did the American people protest overmuch?) and the Bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, OK (1995) where papers and records concerning the Waco conflagration were stored--and where children attended daycare, much to our sorrow, but little to our protest.

Also see my 2008 unedited post on the Oklahoma City Bombing which includes the horoscope. You'll see, among other things (click the horoscope to enlarge) that America's natal Uranus @8Gem55 rises with its indications of rebellion, revolution, uprisings, separations, and explosive actions and upsets--and of course Gemini and its ruler Mercury relate to young people, children, papers, and records.

*1989: Saturn conjunct Neptune: 1. March 3 @11Cap55; 2. June 24 @11Cap14; 3. November 13 @10Cap22; the "Fall" of the Berlin Wall occurred 4 days prior to Conjunction #3 with transiting Jupiter opposite @10Can38 and Rx...

1989 Saturn-Neptune = 1989 Jupiter: expanded ideas that reality is just a vision ("life is but a dream"? sing along!); deceptive practices are further concealed by religious ceremonies (Munkasey); depression; narrow-mindedness; egoism; easy upsets (Ebertin); very upset with the ways of the world; losing the will to fight (Tyl.)

2013 Pluto to 1989's Saturn-Neptune Conjunction

2013: Ancient Pluto's Magic Wand Transforms 1989's Saturn-Neptune Pair

by Jude Cowell

In 1989, Saturn and Neptune met in Great Conjunction three times: March 3, June 24, and November 13. These exact hook-ups (meetings, encounters, energies combined into such influences as: Communism, Americanism, Globalism (its implementation unopposed in 1989), Socialism, secret government, hidden leadership and control, Militarism, Nationalism, lack of community spirit, loss, erosion of soil, dissolution of structure, and all manner of other possibilities (earthy Saturn = form; boundaries, authority, walls, restriction, conservatism, lawmakers, status quo, old men, etc, and watery Neptune = urge to merge; dissolution; deception; delusions, paranoia, illusion; fraud, loss; the media/the masses, propaganda, veils, charlatans, mystics and Mysticism, mediums, channelers, spiritualists, gurus, priests, etc.) And...The Divine Source!

Why, even the GOP's illogical theme of 'shrink small enough (Saturn) until we can drown in a bath tub (Neptune) the baby of government (Saturn)' is described by this problematic pair of energies, and of course, we are reminded of political ideologue and operative Grover Norquist, in 1989 and now--along with the Congress-White House alliance that introduced harsh Sequester Cuts that now undermine the US economic recovery, delayed as it's been by political hacks and jackasses.

Saturn-Neptune's cosmic cycle is approximately 36 years in duration and is represented by the 9th Harmonic and the 4th Harmonic if we choose to reduce to essentials and study our topic on such levels (4 x 9 = 36; 2 x 18 = 36; 6 x 6 = 36.)

See Historical Events of 1989 if you're curious for you've already noticed that lumbering Pluto, of ancient beast reputation, has of late visited the range of degrees in Saturn-ruled Capricorn where Saturn and Neptune nestled a'nonce in 1989. Now with the entire 30 degrees of The Goat or Mer-Goat sign said to be a difficult Labyrinth unto itself, we're experiencing transit Pluto transforming facets of the 1989 duo of Saturn-Neptune, blended and working in tandem as they were. Karmic Pluto can stir any pot from beneath his Invisible Cape and Helmet of power, surveillance and puppet mastery--plus, assassination can never be completely ruled out wherever The Creepy One and his minions skulk and snivel.

So if the current trine aspect between Saturn and Neptune doesn't pan out quite as well as society needs it to (Scorpio to Pisces) toward social improvements, we can collectively 'thank' string-puller and wealth-horder Pluto (aka, Drago or Draco the Dragon) for interfering in our business from atop his secluded Ivory Tower while every ill wish toward us is lodged obsessively within the recesses of his primitive reptilian brain.

We speak of cultural and societal shifts that have been a long time coming with Pluto's orbital cycle around 248 years in length. And of course, America's Pluto Return (to 27Cap33) occurs 3x in 2022, as you know,--for the first time ever. Earlier degrees that Pluto crossed leading up to July 4, 1776 are of significance as well and may yield much info if one cares to have a peek at important historical dates and 'match them' with transiting Pluto's positions of the era--then look for Pluto's return to that degree in our modern era, plus, note the positions of other planets at that particular moment in time.

Using the degrees of 2013's transiting Pluto (Mr. Hades) hitting the *10--12 Cap range of the Tropical Zodiac, we find a midpoint picture with several potentials to be aware of in 2013 as they relate to events, entities, and personalities of 1989 (exs: GHWB, RR); you'll recognize some of the Jackassery Politics of our more brash era--above-the-law behavior now exhibited and practiced by those who assume they can get away with whatever bad behavior might gain them their objective/s--and for support, 'behavioral' Uranus now careens and jerks its erratic way through 'upstart' Aries. Radical anarchists, those dreamers!

Below, Ebertin, Tyl, and Munkasey midpoint descriptions are paraphrased for you:

1989 Saturn-Neptune = tr Pluto 2013+: denial of guilt and responsibility; new ideas about evolution upset long held but weaker historical theories (Munkasey); tremendous fear of loss (Tyl): difficult growth or development; heavy emotional depression (as when your home, school, and community are blown away? jc); serious illness (Ebertin.)

Besides affecting 1989's suffering duo Saturn and Neptune in 2013, Pluto is active in other planetary configurations as well including acting as apex planet in a critical YOD pattern shown in America's Solar Return 2013 horoscope, denoting our national birthday (on July 5th this year.) Heads-Up on an upcoming SO'W post about the US SR 2013 topic with Cancer, the sign of The Crab emphasized: additional details will be provided soon concerning this newly beginning 'personal year' (July 5, 2013 until July 2014) for our nation as seen through a common-good astrological lens by this former DC resident and blogger who dabbles in Astrology in a meager attempt to lift the rock from the squirmy little politicians writhing underneath.

Symbolically speaking, Pluto does like to animate his spiders, scorpions, and vermin in a macabre dance of manipulation and control, doesn't he?

Now in our dualistic world, there are both positive and negative levels of expression, but as a basic reminder of the Sabian Symbols involved with this planetary trio of fate as Pluto waves his magic wand, here you go: '10Cap' = "An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor" = NURTURE; '11Cap' = "A large group of pheasants" = ILLIMITABILITY; '12Cap" = "A student of nature lecturing" = EXPLANATION. (Marc Edmund Jones, The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.)

"Pheasants"? Parading upon an 'ancient lawn', perhaps?

"There exists a shadowy government--"

Chalmers Johnson, who clued me in a few years ago on such topics as The Sorrows of Empire, and Blowback wrote about what he called "the president's private army"--the CIA--in an article from 2007, Agency of Rogue.

Of interest to those who are familiar with America's so-called 'Sibly' natal horoscope (there's more than one) set for 5:10 pm LMT (July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA) our nation's 10th house Saturn exalted in Libra and 9th house Neptune in earthy Virgo created a midpoint picture with natal Midheaven (MC = The Goal) which perfected in approximately 1780 (natal Saturn about 4 degrees from Neptune divided by 2 = Saturn-Neptune midpoint.) With controlling Saturn in Mundane Astrology signifying government, law, and business and nebulous Neptune's secret-invisible-shadowy things often masked or hidden (in America's case, 'in plain sight' apparently), we have:

Saturn-Neptune = MC: using inefficient methods when completed work is needed (Munkasey); peculiar loss of ambition; giving up or capitulating to demands of the environment totally (Tyl.)

Or we may simply say that The Goal for this nation was to set up and maintain a shadow government built on secrecy and deception which All the World sees at US natal MC! And you know, the more I read about how America's Great Seal images are based on Illumnati symbols (a secret society of Utopians who wish to demolish all governments and other civilized institutions and systems), I'm almost ready to believe just that even though it's difficult to accept that America's Founding Fathers were so crass as our present-day politicians or that they set up our nation to fail (Saturn in 10th house = 'fall from grace' if Saturnian themes are neglected as they've been--and fittingly, they weren't aware of Neptune in 1776.)

Who Else Knows About This?

As Senator Daniel Inouye informed us in 1987 (during the money-diverting, arms-dealing Reagan administration which helped fund and set up the following):

There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from law itself."

That's one good reason why they tell us we're broke! And perhaps it partially explains why, in spite of millions of Americans protesting against the US government's preemptive wars, invasions, and occupations in the Middle East, We the People are seldom if ever listened to by our "representatives" who obviously dance to a different tune than of a government "--of the people, by the people, for the people," as President Abraham Lincoln described our country when closing his Gettysburg Address of 1863.

Lunar Secrets of Saturn-Neptune Describe the Ryan Budget Plan

Lunar Secrets of Saturn-Neptune Describe the Ryan Budget Plan by Jude Cowell

On The Maddow Blog Rep. Paul Ryan and his draconian take-from-poor-give-to-rich 'Budget Plan' is discussed with emphasis on the consequences of the suffering from cuts to programs that operate as lifelines for the poor, elderly, disabled, and children that shall ensue in spite of Mr. Ryan's alleged Catholic beliefs. I say 'alleged' because in all my years, some of the most charitable folk I've known were of the Catholic persuasion--and they never stinted anyone they could aid by putting their religious faith in action on behalf of the disadvantaged or those in temporary dire straights.

See: Paul Ryan on the Suffering of the Poor and consider that at this time, America's Secondary Progressed horoscope shows a certain descriptive midpoint picture and other factors detailed below along with a complicating Moon-Saturn-Mars condition now active in our national progressions as well. For timing's sake, the progressed chart I calculated issues from America's 'Sibly' natal chart of July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Secondary Progressions of other versions may give slightly different timing info but all portents are for 2012 with the Ryan Budget Plan in the news and 'on the table' for implementation as if the cruel nature of its consequences is unworthy of our closer consideration.

As always with midpoint pictures, all, any, or none may apply; like the natal Moon in Mundane Astrology, the Progressed Moon relates to The People, women, mothers, and families (including political-social wedge issues such as abortion, contraception, children's nutritional programs, security needs, women marrying women, Planned Parenthood defunding, etc), and to the public's current mood and to societal trends:

Sec Saturn/Neptune = Sec Moon: pessimism; emotional depression; a low character (Ryan and his cohorts, imho, and those kicked out on our streets or going to bed hungry--in America); illness through emotional suffering; women's diseases chronic or otherwise (Ebertin); hesitating over relacing what no longer functions; activities which serve no real purpose and seem to come and go; increased use of drugs to escape harsh realities and responsibilities (Munkasey); emotional drain; feeling inhibited (Tyl.)

Such planetary sigificators as Moon-Saturn-Neptune may also be described as the Grim Face of Reality weighing down upon us yet US politicians continue to hand us enslavement to a False Reality as Paul Ryan threatens us with grim austerity measures which are now ruining communities and lives all across Europe! The German government is in command? It's a joke, right?

And now We the People are expected to cheer Ryan's nonsensical madness? Puh!

Campaign 2012's Opponents--or Is It Really Only We vs Them?

As you know, many charges against opponents and parties are being leveled back and forth during Campaign 2012 as was to be expected since this tactic keeps the electorate riled up and divided moer than informed and thus less potent to act against a ruling class greedy for more power and wealth. The charges include such taboos in America as Socialism, Communism, Trotskyism, Social Darwinism, and other systems, ideologies, and methods of governing. ("I know you are but what am I?" Insert childish, self-serving footstamp for dramatic effect. This is badly performed Political Theater, dahlink.)

So as you see, this is part of my topic here for all of these systems, ideologies, and methods belong precisely within the realm of the Saturn-Neptune pair when their energies combine. Plus, you know of the secret/invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn) which America is said to be directed by--in Britain they go ahead and call it a Shadow Government though in the US our politicians act more coyly and never discuss such a mysterious system if it can be avoided; plus, my studies continue to indicate that London has been ruling America all along! Or did you know?

Then there's our national horoscope with '1 Libra' at Midheaven (MC = The Goal) which places natal Saturn 14Lib48 in 10th house and natal Neptune 22Vir25 in 9th house (of Foreign Lands) on either side of MC which gives a picture of Saturn/Neptune = MC: capitulating to the demands of the environment totally (at Cornwallis' 'Surrender'?); using short, inefficient methods when tough, dedicated, complete work is needed; wavering between materialism and idealism; frequent mood changes; a peculiar character; emotional suffering; illness.

Or, we might say that secret, invisible government, Communism, Socialism, etc, have been our government's goal all along (well, ours and the puppetmasters abroad who actually call the shots in Washington through the Federal Reserve System.) Actually some do say such things--that maintaining The Masses on large social welfare programs is intended to be how our society functions and not as a democracy of people able to stand on their own at all.

For as Barry Goldwater (Sun Cap-Moon Tau) once informed, warned, prophesied, or promised us, "A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." Which is not to say that social welfare programs are replete with riches for those who must partake of them for they merely help the needy get by, not prosper. You must apply to Corporate Welfare Programs like TARP or other trillion-dollar bailouts if you wish to prosper like a bandit!

Secondary Progressed Moon as Timer and Emotional Indicator

Making matters more complex, as many astrologers have already detailed, is the astrological factor of US Secondary Progressed Moon 14Lib42 now approaching our Sec Mars Rx in Sec 2nd house (exact in about 3 months but within orb now)--and Luna is already knocking on the gate of US natal Saturn 14Lib48--Moon-Saturn can show ambition, strategy, and direction, but also depressive, limiting conditions.

Add US Sec Neptune 26Vir14 Rx in Sec 2nd H as well and you have the above-mentioned depression, pessimism, and suffering, along with the fraud and sad losses of idealistic Neptune in Virgo, sign of Dedicated Work, Employment, Service--and 2nd H = Earning Ability and Values. Its our traditional values of providing aid for the needy (aka, a Christian nation and attitude) that Ryan and his ilk are working to transform along with an attempt to free up funds for more war on behalf of a 'new world order' and for the wealthy class to wallow about in like greedy pigs. Plus, indicators of floods, other expensive weather-related losses, problems with oil, gas, toxins, and poisons are shown by gaseous Neptune, as you know.

Worrisomely, our natural gas pipeline system is under cyber-attack as I type, reports USA Today, Christian Science Monitor, and NPR. Astrologically, this circumstance, in effect since 2011 apparently, shows in certain horoscopes (protagonist Mars in 9th H of Foreign Lands) and I plan to discuss the topic more fully later on if my blogging calendar permits.

Mars = Males Between the Ages of 25 - 35, Give or Take a Year or So

Well, US Sec Mars 18Lib30 Rx (retrograde by progression since 2006) has re-turned some of our troops home but has also brought protests by, and military and police actions against, the American people. The current Sec Moon-to-Mars factor indicates the anger, rage, protests, and riled up feelings and actions that are expectable whenever the emotionally charged duo of Moon and Mars get together; and maybe more Americans will soon sign up for military service in lieu of employment at home. Plus, in Politics and Business, Michael Munkasey gives the Moon-Mars duo a potential for: 'leaders who show concern about the welfare of people but don't necessarily follow through with relief'! Wonder who that could be?

In addition, US natal Saturn's presence in Sec 2nd H adds austerity, loss, delay, depression, control, and restriction to our difficult financial picture, and I for one hope and pray that America will not fall underneath the crushing boots of the cruel policies of ideologues of either political party (Tea Party members very much included) who brazenly place abstract systems of thought (such as Social Darwinism with its anti-social 'survival of the fittest' meanness, and the Objectivism of Ayn-Randers like Paul Ryan) far above their fellow Americans' very lives. Well, except that Objectivists act not as Americans, do they?

Now let's close with two Sabian Symbols which are quite descriptive of conditions in America 2012 and of certain detached politicians who now scorn their social responsibilities (tell me again: why are they 'serving' in Washington as representatives of The People?) Meanwhile they act as part of the political arm of globalist world-domination schemers rather than representing us! These symbols issue directly from the Moon-Mars Rx picture above; both pictures are from The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, by Marc Edmund Jones and to my way of common good thinking, they simultaneously describe several levels of our current conditions including Rep. Paul Ryan's Budget Plan intended to starve the needy, and to anyone who sides with his abstract anti-social dogma, either openly or secretly--they'd be ashamed if they had any shame:

'18Lib' = "Two Men Placed Under Arrest" = CONSEQUENCE.

positive expression: a heightened challenge to every special talent;

negative (unconscious/shadow side--jc): total inappropriateness of impulse and act.

'19Lib' = "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding" = DIVERGENCE.

positive: alertness to every threat against a true individuality;

negative (shadow side): abnormal mistrust of everything worth while.


Blog Note: you'll find few astro-notes concerning the natal chart of Rep. Paul Ryan if you wish to enter his name in the sidebar's Search field; I'd add a link to the post for you but frankly I'm more than a little fed up with him at the moment. jc

Barack Obama hearts Teddy Roosevelt? Uh-Oh!

March 1, 2012

Just an interesting article link for you today meant especially for those who like to read about historical figures: Contrarian: Teddy Roosevelt Laid Bare from History Today which questions the wisdom of President Obama's hearkening back to Teddy Roosevelt and the early days of Progressivism in America.

Now if I weren't packing for the moving van, I could really get goin' on the Astrology of Teddy R! Instead, here's a bit of Astrology concerning TR's natal chart which includes his intriguing quote about America's invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn).

US natal Neptune 22Vir25 + US natal Saturn 14Lib48 = US natal Midheaven (Goal; Aspiration) in the Sibly horoscope (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA; MC 00Lib53, a World Point of Manifestation...kind of like 'Manifest Destiny', the idea of expansion without end, as we now see--and expansive Jupiter ruling US natal ASC.)

Saturn/Neptune = delusions about the real leadership. (Munkasey.)

Saturn/Neptune = MC: materialism v idealism. (Ebertin.)

Neptune in Pisces = Pineal Gland concerns?

Neptune in Pisces, the Pineal Gland, and Our Dissolving Willpower

by Jude Cowell

Since boundary-dissolving Neptune will soon dip its toe once again into the deep waters of Pisces (on or about February 3, 2012) for a long-winded swim (until 2024/25), the planet's astrological association with the human body's light-affected pineal gland ('third eye'/intuitive function) seems due for quite a bit of attention since we will be affected on a global scale.

An increase of environmental issues and damages to lose sleep over may be noted as our brains' melatonin production lowers and may need a *supplemental boost.

Studies show calcification in the pineal gland from use of fluoridated water as noted in Fluoride: Calcifier of the Soul, an interesting title considering Neptune's link to spirituality and The Divine Source, as denoted in Astrology.

Recent travels of Chiron (the Wounded Healer; the Wound) in tandem with transiting Neptune brought us the earthquake/tsunami in Japan and the Fukushima Nuclear Meltdown in 2011 with radiation continuing in 2012 to leak into the Pacific Ocean, the realm of Neptune. Thus the boundaries of our DNA are weakened and breached on a cellular level, and environmental issues become more confusing yet more critical for all of mankind.

Of course, calcification is a Saturnian process, a hardening, and the blend of Saturn with Neptune indicates 'the chronic and unhampered progress of malady, organic decomposition, undermining circumstances that lead to illness', says Ebertin, along with 'poor, sick, depressed persons' and 'diseases with causes difficult to ascertain'. (The Combination of Stellar Influences.)

Along with the pineal gland, Ebertin also gives Neptune as representing the
solar plexus, the power and will chakra, and paralysis, and Neptune in Pisces as: reserve, an inclination to mysticism, reverie and artistic pursuits; the inner or psychic life open to external influences, pessimism, a craving for alcohol, nicotine, etc, pathological tendencies and inclinations'.

So though society's artistic creativity will flourish, it seems that many people's power and will may become weaker with Neptune in Pisces though perhaps knowing this may help us guard against much of the dissolution. Drugs, including alcohol, won't help matters, only increase the weakening effects upon The Collective of a Piscean Neptune and the secretive forces of destruction which beset us.

An increase in paranoia will be part of the Piscean Neptune picture as well.

And of course you're familiar with Neptune's link to poisons, toxins, and contagions with its 'urge to merge' tendency relating to the dissolving of Saturnian boundaries, as noted above.

Yes, We've Dreamed This Dream Before...

History repeats in similar if not exact ways so astrologers tend to look back to the last time a planet entered a sign to see past effects, and with Neptune to 00Pisces, that would be 1847--off and on from April 1847 to December 7, 1848 due to the gaseous planet's frequent retrogradation periods. (Neptune's cycle lasts approximately 164 years.) This historical info hints at what sort of trends and conditions to expect during the current planetary transit.

Neptunian Events 1847

Several events listed for 1847 have Neptunian flavors to them. One such is July 10 when Leverrier and Adams, the co-discoverers of Neptune, met for the first time at the home of John Herschel, son of William Herschel, discoverer of erratic Uranus (1781.)

The association of these men creates a time link between the planets of The Enlightenment, Uranus and Neptune, by way of human beings and their astronomical activities and encounters.

Then there's July 24, when Brigham Young and his Mormon followers schlepped into the Salt Lake City, Utah area with Neptune as a spiritual indicator and significator of bodies of water--this one full of Saturnian salts!

Neptunian Events 1848

Plus, some events of 1848 resonate closely with our Neptunian topics as well: James Knox Polk became the first president in office to be photographed, one of Neptune's filmy, glamorous roles (the 'silver screen'; the arts; illusion.)

On February 26, 1848, Marx and Engels (with the backing of --?--) published the Communist Manifesto, a grand bit of Neptunian propaganda with its Saturn/Neptune 'Communism' element (Saturn = government and control, Neptune = invisible, or secret--things We the People know a little about in the US with both planets elevated in our nation's July 4, 1776 horoscope set for 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA.)

Another example occurred on May 29, 1848 when the flow of Niagara Falls ceased for 30 hours because of an ice jam which describes cold Saturn's crystallization (hardening) process acting upon a liquid (Neptune.)

Then on May 30, 1848, children could rejoice over the patenting of the ice cream freezer by William G. Young--yummy liquids hardened into flavorful, cooling treats.

But perhaps one of the more ironic events of 1848 occurred on June 26 when the first pure food law was passed in the United States. That its laudable attempts at protecting the American people have been adulterated through the decades making 'food and drug safety' in the US debatable (if it exists at all) is a Neptunian disappointment of toxic proportions and we are certain to hear more revelations of poisonings by the food, agricultural, nuclear, chemical, and other industries as Neptune lumbers slowly through its own watery realm of Pisces.

Of course, there's also the well-known connection of astrological Pluto to nuclear power, control, and waste disposal--and pipelines-- but today's post is written in honor of Neptune making a tremendously important ingress into its own sign which will soon come to pass whether we're ready or not.

With 2012 Upon Us

Naturally, the projected construction (Saturn) of Canada's Keystone XL Pipeline comes to mind with its potentials for gas and chemical leaks and the controversial, chemically-infused fracking process which threatens US water sources if the pipeline is built. Neptune's use as A Veil for secrets is on tap along with its scandalous implications of Neptunian fraud, deceit, and neglectful policies that can easily lead to lousy maintenance conditions and even to sabotage.

My personal conclusion about these difficult issues is that anything we can do to boost our and our family members' immune systems should be on top of our 2012 agenda! And please note these cautions: be careful when participating in water sports and when traveling in, on, or over bodies of water for mysterious conditions may be present--and beware gas leaks and oily schemers...

And here's a link to an enlightening video interview with scientist-journalist Leuren Moret who doesn't buy the idea that the Fukushima Meltdown occurred only by Nature's fury. In fact, dear reader, type 'Japan' or 'Fukushima' into this blog's sidebar Search field and you'll find other content concerning Neptunian topics whose effects will soon be front and center with Neptune in Pisces, a perfect significator of radiation toxicity leaking into the sea and into the DNA of our present and future generations.
Yet let us not give in to nuke fears or be dismissive due to anxiety--let's get active against all forms of this worldwide nuclear threat to Planet Earth!

A Daft US Government Teeters on Backs of the Poor Sept 2011

How Purposeful Washington's Political Games Now Seem

by Jude Cowell

All logic tossed out the window, there are factions in the US determined to topple our republic and one of their tactics is to pile responsibility for current, dire financial straights onto the "backs of the poor" with President Obama at the helm and, one must assume, complicit in a radical and daft recipe for systemic collapse.

("We will bury you", pronounced Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev to America during my childhood. Thanks for that memory, Nikki. But you're just another in a long line of jackassian politicians in my book.)

Well, Ray McGovern's article Obama on the Backs of the Poor from August 3, 2011 is worth a second look if you've had a first--or is a not-to-be-missed if you did. Apparently daftness and perfidy masquerading as recklessness rules Washington Politics more than ever though I will not give passes for those who mismanage by design. To paraphrase Max Igan, US government officials and workers are in breach of contract as our employees if they don't effectively do the jobs that come with their positions.

As one-world-government types like to parrot loudly: rule of law! --which should effectively include lawmakers, their minions, staffs, operatives, and all bureaucrats.

A difference though is that the VP and President are not actually elected by the people but by the squirrelly electoral college of muckedy mucks. Perhaps one of the big 'secrets' of America's 'invisible' government from founding times is that the aristocrats won the lotto and most of the spoils which often accrued and accrue from the labor of working men and women.

My, how we haven't spiritually progressed as factions work tirelessly to make providing for the 'general welfare' a thing of the past--it's been made to seem "too expensive" to waste money on the poor and disadvantaged. Has compassion become old-fashioned in America? Then we-the-people must lift it up!

A Quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Growing up within an hour or so from the reverend's home church in Atlanta, Ga, I remember hearing his voice and words on radio, TV, and in the news. As noted in the article above, *Rev. Martin Luther King Jr in a 1950s era speech said this:

"A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on an installment plan."

For me this follows Biblical examples of consumption of rich foods (and in our cases, foods contaminated with toxins and re-engineered with frankensteinian intent--some would cry, "eugenics" or "guinea-pig-ism") causing physical and mental weakness rather than imparting strength as nutritious food should do, and causing a constant undermining of health on many levels and during all decades of our lives.


*On using a quote from Dr. King on SO'W, it's happened before yet I admit to reading some information recently on his alleged connections to communist groups or individuals--but i am not convinced. For given the blatant hounding of the popular leader who could sway the masses, awaken our Higher Natures, and beneficially affect our social order in the process, his opponents' assertions about him are difficult to trust. And as Dr. King's Chiron-in-Pisces pastorship began meshing issues of Civil Rights, Workers' Rights, and the Peace Movement under his revival tent, he was then seen as a dangerous man by certain 'special' interests having a larger agenda to force one-world-government--the one we now see being implemented more openly than before as their trap is almost set.

And it was as President that George H. W. Bush first publicly intoned the term "new world order" in speeches along with a chilling promise (aka, threat) that the shadowy 'they' will be successful imposing a totalitarian, Saturnian-Neptunian system over the entire globe and over what they are determined will be a surveillance-police state-America risen from the ashes, the Illuminati's spying all-seeing-eye over the 13-step pyramid's missing capstone on the never-officially used and masonic- symbol-ridden reverse side of America's Great Seal.

A Saturn-Neptune Spot Check 2011

Saturn (government; systems; restrictions) with Neptune (secret; veils; the masses; the media; paranoia) denotes 'secret' or 'invisible' 'government' which shows in America's natal chart/s of July 4, 1776 with Saturn @ 14Lib48, and Neptune @ 22Vir25 (conjoined with the natal Mars of Barack Obama.) In our oft-utilized natal chart set for 5:10 pm LMT, we see the midpoint of the Secret Government pair @ 3Lib37--close enough in orb to the New Moon of September 27, 2011 @ 4Lib00 to indicate a 'new cycle of activity' beginning in relation to America's secret or invisible government plans and policies.

Of late. transit Uranus in early Aries ('Utopians' according to Ebertin) has been triggering or catalyzing the midpoint of US natal Saturn/Neptune...n Sat/Nep = tr Uranus: sudden weaknesses emerge; excitability; irritability; peculiar inclinations; upsets cause illness; inner unrest (of a people or a nation.) (R. Ebertin; any, all, or none may apply.)

Of course, to reach the Sept 27 New Moon we must first enter and navigate the 3-day period of the Dark Moon when hidden things go bump in the night and society's infestations of satanic forces opportunistically act with even more impunity. Sudden emergence of financial weaknesses cannot be ruled out, as we've already seen of late. Plus, the Saturn-Neptune pair of energies also carries a 'materialism v idealism' connotation.

And though a Dark Moon phase is an excellent time to lay low or chillax, my thought is that for best results in coming days, beware too many entertaining distractions because these people play for keeps, y'all, 2012 is upon our doorsteps, and from Sept 27's New Moon into 2012/13 will mark a watershed phase for all of humanity. Messing this up is not an option, really.

(You may wish to see my previous post on the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 2Sag37--perhaps it's in the Top Ten Posts feed in the sidebar below--since it's the last celestial 'wild card of the Universe' of 2011 in solar fashion and ushers in Year 2012. The receptive Lunar Eclipse of December 10, 2011 is near the top of my to-blog list and is coming to this blog in the next week or two--it will be the cosmic companion of the Solar Eclipse of Nov 25, 2011 and both will do the 2012 ushering.)

Another thought to mention concerning President Obama is that he and MLK share the natal placement of Chiron in mystical Pisces (a Seeker on a Quest, perhaps for the 'Holy Grail'), and BHO is now in the midst of his Chiron Return, a numinous passage in life which occurs around age 50 that, in his case, is a five-fer (5 conjunctions of transit Chiron to his natal Chiron's zodiacal position.) This perfectly timed synchronicity lengthens the timeframe of the course of lessons the Wounded Healer will be teaching Pres. Obama, age 50--including the eternal one about "Be Here Now". jc

USA: The Secret Government (Bill Moyers video 1987)

Well, I vaguely remember watching this report from Bill Moyers years ago and am pleased to find it on video for you to consider in 2011 as hidden and not-so-hidden plutocrats continue their coup against democratic rulership in America which apparently (they devise) requires the crashing of our economy and the world financial system in order to further their global domination plan.

And if you use the 'Sibly' version of America's natal horoscope (5:10 pm LMT July 4, 1776 Philadelphia, PA), you're familiar with our 10th house Saturn 14Lib48 and 9th house Neptune 22Vir25 'straddling' US natal Midheaven 00Lib43 (The Goal) with the Saturn/Neptune duo indicating secret or invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn.)

Unfortunately, our national Saturn exalted in Libra won't help us much with our battles through its 10th house position which denotes a fall from grace in the eyes of the world, a condition made worse by a complicit, over-reaching Supreme Court (Libra's Scales of Justice, and Saturn as law-bringer)--and by the very brigands-in-hiding which Bill Moyers here discusses.

Quotes about a 'New World Order' (FDR, Nixon, Bush, 9/11, etc)

An interesting link has been added in SO'W's sidebar with Quotes of Note concerning the establishment of a New World Order (aka, a new world economic order.) From the linked page I'm lifting the following excerpt and will hook you up near post's end with a link to the complete list of quotes.

The first one you've probably read or heard before. It's the second one that ties together some of my recent discoveries as I finish reading Jonathan Alter's The Defining Moment about FDR. So far I'm finding no mention of any particular NWO stuff by Mr. Alter, and no hint of FDR's notable Masonic membership (initiated October 11, 1911 NYC.) But the UN is present, of course.

Change in America?

Between FDR's March 4, 1933 Inauguration and his 2nd Inauguration on January 20, 1937, the character and leadership (Sun) of the office of the US presidency were morphed from Jupiter/Neptune's Piscean (March 1933's Sun 13Pis41 w Moon 16Gem41 @ 1:08 pm est, the time of Oath-taking as stated in Mr. Alter's book) into Saturn/Uranus' Aquarian (January 1937's Sun 00AQ15 w Moon 11Tau44 @ noon.)

FDR was often thought in his day to be a lightweight in the intellectual department, and his continual nodding while saying, "Yes, yes, yes" gave people the impression he was agreeing with them! He considered himself an 'actor', 'juggler', and 'magician' and had many rhetorical tricks and flourishes as a 'gifted orator' (see quote, paragraph 2!) Yes, FDR was famous for his 'fireside chats' meant to sway the American people to his way of thinking, and oftentimes the campaign worked:

In Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s The Coming of the New Deal (1958) he quotes Machiavelli at the front of the book saying, "There is nothing...more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things."

At the end of the book, he quotes Fabian Socialist H.G. Wells describing FDR as, "The most effective transmitting instrument possible for the coming of the new world order. He is continuously revolutionary in the new way without ever provoking a stark revolutionary crisis."

Really? Well, that's not too surprising since FDR was born with revolutionary *Uranus Rx rising in mid-Virgo!

Both his natal ASC and Uranus Rx are @ '18Vir' = "Two Girls Playing with a Ouija Board." Mr. Alter quotes some of FDR's contemporaries as trying to put a finger on a certain air about the man and 'feminine' is one of the possibilities. 'Ouija board' seems to refer in part to mysticism and use of the occult such as Freemasonry and other societies might engage in.

Well, to read more such notable quotes on the establishment of a New World Order or one-world-government (since knowledge is power) click here.Some of it may surprise you including who said or penned them and how widespread NWO touting and envisioning was even decades ago...some say all the way back to the founding of America though I retain serious and sentimental doubts that the totalitarianism and fascism of today's Zionists and Trotskyite neocons (and their competitive attempts to gain control of the global government's helm and grandly unite Capitalism with Socialism) were just what the Founding Fathers had in mind.

However, there is that pesky Saturn (government; authoritarianism; Capitalism) and Neptune (secret; invisible; Socialism) pair atop (The Goal) of America's natal horoscope in the Sibly version: Saturn/Neptune as a planetary pair of energies collectively signifies Communism and Socialism.


*Uranus rising = coping ability, and a magician, just as FDR professed!
