Project 2025 and Kevin Roberts

A Quick Peek at the Planets of Kevin Roberts

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

The Wikipedia bio page of dystopian provocateur of tyranny, Kevin Roberts, labels him mildly as a "political strategist." Yet the page contains reference links to a variety of articles about him saying he's a "DC outsider" and a "cowboy Catholic." Take your pick but don't leave out the fact that Roberts assumed leadership of the Heritage Foundation and Heritage Action on December 1, 2021, and soon after he took the reins of control, Project 2025 became a thing, a game plan, as it were, for a longed-for Trump v2 stint in the Oval Office come January 20, 2025. Or, if agent orange can't attend, an agenda for any other Aryan-styled seditionist, eager for power and pining for a pat on the head from Vlad.

Now if you've read any of my fussy posts before, you know that I consider the GOP's dystopian agenda they call "Project 2025" to be their hail Mary effort to sabotage the US government into a military police state, aka, Fascism with a generous helping of neo-gnatzie-ism.

Meanwhile, "Project 2025" has become the most searched for term on Google in recent days which is a good thing since Election 2024 approaches: let's sunlight the heck out of its madness. And despite Herr Trump hiding away for several days in an attempt to disassociate himself from the harshness of their purge agenda, no one is fooled by Donnie's absurd coyness. We know who and what the orange monster is - and he must be directly faced to be vanquished.

So just in case you ever need it, above a noon natal horoscope for Kevin Roberts surrounded by the July 2, 2024 Neptune Station Rx @29Pis55:54 - which conjuncts the fixed star of extreme misfortune, Scheat. Why? Because, as you see, Roberts has a trio of natal planets in the tribal sign of Cancer: Sun @2Can47, Saturn @7Can34, and Mercury Rx @12Can02, and all three will be eventually squared by Neptune in the coming few years. Beginning with his Sun (which squares his natal Pluto giving him a "might makes right" domineering attitude - including toward women). This is a transit of confusion and disorientation when his leadership position, integrity, principles, and honesty are in doubt. Then once transit Neptune enters Aries and proceeds to oppose natal Pluto (@4Libra), whatever political and financial power he has gained by then will erode.

Of course, this might be a comforting thought but unfortunately its influence won't come soon enough to gum up their vengeful Project 2025 agenda in case a Blue Wave of sane voters fails to Vote Blue on November 5, 2024 and be counted. Now you must have read or heard Roberts' threat against our families and America's future, but I'll quote him here (with one asterisk) for those who've managed to miss his intention so far:

"We are in the process of the second American Revolution, which will remain blo*dless if the left allows it to be."

And this psychopathic behavior of aggression, dear reader, was signaled to us last year by the 7 North "blo*d lust" Eclipse of April 20, 2023 @30Aries, the position of the American Revolution's Sun and the J6 position of warrior planet Mars on January 6, 2021. 7 North in April 2023 qualified, in fact, as Herr Adolf's "birthday eclipse."

And btw: 7 North also timed the first shot of America's Civil War of 1861.

American Imperialism Horoscope, circa 2024

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

On Monday July 1, 2024, the US Supreme Court gifted convicted felon Trump with absolute immunity for criminal acts. The time stamp I have for the announcement of SCOTUS' anti-democracy, unAmerican decision is 10:28 am edt so that's the timing used to set up a DC Horoscope that I'm sorrowfully labeling, American Imperialism:

Messenger Mercury: Star of the Show

With Virgo rising, decision planet Mercury, The Messenger, is chart-ruler and applies twice: first Mercury trines stationary Neptune which turned Rx 20H 12M later @29Pis55:55. This trine aspect shows that logic has little if any part in the Court's decision, and facts are of no consideration, only "inspiration" applies. Plus, fraudster Neptune at a critical 29th degree - so near the Aries Point - conjuncts Scheat, star of extreme misfortune.

Next, speedy Mercury opposes Pluto @1AQ22 Rx, leading a BOWL shape of planets which identifies Pluto as leader of, or advocate for, a cause or a mission. My guess is that Pluto's ongoing languish upon the "An Old Adobe Mission" degree (1AQ) sneakily whispers a tale of a proselytizing plan by the Catholic Church via corrupt US Supreme Court "Justices." Thing is, most folks know that morality cannot be enforced externally, it must be an internal process. To do otherwise is to invite a version of the Spanish Inquisition into American society, and the torture and murd*r that comes with such sadistic behavior.

In fact, the GOP Project 2025 agenda intended to purge the US government and country could be seen as a second Spanish Inquisition (1478--1834) which itself was a purge that "consolidated power in the monarchy of the unified Spanish Kingdom." Well, perhaps you remember that in May 2024, Trump said the quiet part out loud when the phrase "unified Reich" appeared in his promo material. Oops! The phrase was soon deleted.

So considering that Aquarius links to independence, freedom, and quirkiness, I suspect that the Court's brazen gift of absolute immunity is intended to satisfy a dictator-wanne-be's dream of protection from accountability, and thereby to further the long-planned global fascist movement of lawlessness - a fulfilling of Herr Adolf's dream.

All this can be partially symbolized in the American Imperialism Horoscope with its Aquarian Saturn-Uranus old order vs new order implications.

Then as noted, chart-ruler Mercury @28Can22 applies to opposition to powerful, wealthy Pluto (and US 1776 Pluto as well), so the intensity of the Court's wrong-headed, overreaching decision with its oppressive implications are made clear. Manipulation of information and the promotion of misleading ideas and theories via Mercury-Pluto are also denoted in the Horoscope of American Imperialism, and the GOP's dystopian agenda is boosted by the utilization of US Mercury-Pluto opposition of 1776 across the Cancer-Capricorn security axis. It's an aspect of total awareness, folks. And total investigation of the "unified reich"'s enemies.

But there's more.

Because Pluto, sometimes known as The Pope in mundane horoscopes, continues his audience-by-transit with fixed star Altair the Eagle, 'he' reminds us that the Church of Rome is, in effect, the Roman Empire in religious robes - now in black robes of the "Supreme" Court. Therefore, following are links to three previous posts with topics which may, on a subversive level, apply to the current Romanesque coup of the US Supreme Court, intended to sabotage the US Justice System of our country and to collapse America into Monarchy. Why, Evil King John must be dancing in his sepulchre with giddy anticipation!

So on a kingly level, if on no other, We the People really are - and will be - fighting a second American Revolution, this time against authoritarian monarchists wearing black robes, off-the-chain politicians, and riled-up seditionists in red caps:

Is Washington DC the 'New Rome'? Altair the Eagle says, Yes.

Roman Empire: Birthday of a New Order.

Trump Trial May 13, 2024: Michael Cohen

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

When the Election Interference trial of D. Trump gavels back in session on Monday May 13, 2024, it is expected that former Trump employee Michael Cohen will testify. Perhaps this will not be on Monday, but during the week since the prosecution announced on Friday that they have only two more witnesses to call.

Now I have only a noon natal horoscope in my files for Michael Cohen but a noon chart "works" quite well when snugged around a Trump Trial Horoscope set for May 13, 2024 9:30 am edt Manhattan, NY, as you see here:

And here's the Trump Trial May 13, 2024 9:30 am edt Manhattan, NY Horoscope by itself, study notes included; Rising is 19Can11; MC 00Ari20 with Neptune of the masses and mass media @29Pisces conjunct the star of misfortune, Scheat; of course with gaslighting Neptune there are issues of deception, fraud, and corruption with a large side order of cultism:

Because 19Can11 rises, the first house Moon in Leo is chart-ruler so her the opposition from Pluto is paramount (see the center of the chart); a sesquisquare from legal eagle Saturn indicates that complex and calculating questions will be posed. Meanwhile, Donald's first natal planet to rise is his 11th house Saturn @23Can48, followed closely by natal Venus @25:44. This suggests potentials such as the wide age difference between Donald and Stormy, the austere surroundings and cold atmosphere in the court room, discontent in relationships, and/or scenes of jealousy (R. Ebertin). This is where I add, poor ole fella.

Now as you know, this Election Interference Trial is occurring under the auspices of the Great American Eclipse of April 8, 2024 @19Ari24 conjunct Chiron also @19Ari24 in the 8 North Saros Series of '"dreams and visions" (not entered on the chart but in 10th house between Chiron and North Node if it were). With Mr. Trump bringing to the surface America's original wound of racism, we're given a karmic opportunity to deal with such flaws in the American psyche but as we all know, there are dark forces operating across the globe today, determined to make matters worse in US society, not to find solutions.

In fact, outside actors have been maliciously working against democracy for years and they think they're about to successfully destroy Enlightenment principles once and for all. Theirs is a global movement which includes various criminal networks of thugs and thieves, which means that the US government is fighting against a vast entity, a cabal that would destroy our nation - and not just against the orange marauder and his cultish gang of barbarians and berserkers.

See Ali Velshi's How Republicans are fueling Russia and China's global effort to undermine democracy.

One watershed moment in relation to such anti-democracy efforts occurred with the Great Conjunction/s of Neptune and Pluto (organized crime) of 1891/92 which landed upon US 1776 Uranus @9Gemini, our totem planet of war and rebellion. Obviously, industrialists, the robber baron generation and their spawn (biological and/or ideological) are indicated and America's homegrown anarchists and malcontents are identified by radical Uranus. These days, the Revolutionary rebels of 1776 are used to mask saboteurs now working to undermine and collapse America as we saw demonstrated on January 6, 2021 by Donald's violent coup attempt. As you know, his effort is ongoing.

So all this makes up one of the primal reasons why Election 2024 results cannot go the barbarian way of primal Pluto's animalism!

Intense Conflict-High Emotions: Moon-Pluto and Cohen's natal Mars

Then when it comes to prosecution witness Michael Cohen, we know that he was born into a difficult eclipse series, the 4 North, with themes of "restriction, restraint, illusion." The last manifestation of a 4 North Eclipse was the Summer Solstice 2020 Eclipse @00Cancer of worldwide events - yet we knew not what November 2020 would bring! One of the things it brought was Election 2020 - and a 4 South Solar Eclipse @23Sag08 on the very day of the Electoral College Vote which went for Joe Biden, and sparked sore loser Trump's 'Big Lie' (illusion) from which the American people still suffer - the believers and non-believers alike.

Notable in the trial chart is a dynamic T-square in which the fearful Moon-Pluto opposition points toward testifying Mercury @28Aries, the "A Large Disappointed Audience" degree. Plus, Mercury conjuncts the J6 Mars which may or may not be significant.

So! My hope is that this weekend post is not a complete waste of time and effort since I don't actually know for certain that Michael Cohen will testify Monday, next week, or at all. But if he doesn't, we at least have the Trump Trial Horoscope for May 13, 2024 to keep an eye on, yes? And its influence should be 'good for' the entire week.

April 29, 2024: Mars Meets Neptune

Mars-Neptune and the Search for Greener Pastures

by Jude Cowell

Please pardon the messiness of my study notes penned on the chart, below, it's been a tiring week for multiple reasons, and Mercury retrograde hasn't helped matters. Even so, I want to publish the DC Horoscope of the upcoming Mars-Neptune Conjunction @28Pis52 which lands upon the difficult fixed star of misfortune, Scheat. The conjunction also perfects upon the Jupiter-Pluto midpoint, the power-seeking planetary pair of Plutocracy and big wheeler-dealing.

Obviously, big finance (banking), power politics, religion, and transnational corporatism are indicated along with congressional and court proceedings; a measure of dissatisfaction tends to come along with Mars-Neptune, and the usual fogginess, confusion, and possibly misdirected energies are always present with America's 1776 Mars-Neptune square (in this chart, from 6th to 8th house), and will affect conditions from behind the scenes, perhaps surreptiously; see below for notes concerning this horoscope's unaspected ruler, Saturn:

Then as you see, the rising Capricorn Moon plays a prominent role in the chart and the situation; Luna is out of bounds ('OOBs') so is somehow emotionally alienated or estranged, and yet she also leads all the planets in a BOWL shape which denotes advancing a cause or a mission. Of course, Capricorn is the sign of government, law, business, and investments, and sign and chart-ruler Saturn rules legalities, judges, lawmakers, managers, and older, more experienced participants. Or, we might say, adults in the room.

Yet typically dutiful Saturn, when unaspected in a horoscope, can tend toward indifference or a lack of concern over processes outside a limited sphere of operation. In fact, a lack of motivation to take direct action may be noticed. And with the Mars-Neptune duo suggesting confusion, indecision, and inconsistent efforts, unaspected Saturn's slackness may allow matters to become more disorganized, even chaotic. Add to this unaspected Saturn's lack of conscience and any Saturnian proceedings may linger a while without resolution - until limits are placed or rules established.

A Piscean Sabian Symbol to Ponder

Mars-Neptune's rounded up degree is 29 Pisces with a Sabian Symbol of "A Prism" (see the chart's upper right corner for the keyword). This is, "A symbol of the world's stability," a potential which sounds really good about now, as you may agree.

The Eclipse That Brought Us D. Trump

Neptune: Veils, Lies, Illusion, Subterfuge, Fraud, Theft

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

As you may remember, the June 16, 2015 "prez bid" announcement of Mr. Trump at Trump Tower NY occurred under the auspices of the Spring Equinox 2015 Eclipse @29Pisces27 in the 17 South Saros Series. This eclipse has been discussed here previously, yet I mention it today because transit Neptune will conjunct the eclipse five times in total, casting a gauzy veil of confusion and chaos over 17 South results (Trump!) unless those of a more realistic persuasion keep promoting the facts everywhere possible. The eyes on the prize is democracy and a decent country to live in rather than the gnatzie-style hel*scape envisioned by the vengeful orange narcissist.

Now a major part of "the facts" must involve Neptune conjunct the Eclipse with its "sheep following a leader into the abyss" vibe (he's their pied piper) and the cultish behavior still affecting any remaining dregs of Trump voters, bless their hearts. Meanwhile, 17 South themes include sudden success in group matters and relationships and good news (B. Brady), so obviously Trump benefited from thematic input when he "won" the 2016 Election with help from hidden foreign enablers and domestic fasc*sm-lovers, many of them corporatists.

Transit Neptune Reaches the 17 South Eclipse of 2015 on the following five dates, so the contagious death cult of personality must continue to be guarded against by all but the most depraved among us:

May 20, 2024; August 14, 2024; March 15, 2025; November 23, 2025; December 27, 2025.

Add to this the fact that the 29th degree of any sign is a critical point which possibly brings crisis conditions and/or rash actions, plus, 29 Pisces+ conjuncts the Cardinal World Point of 00Aries00 which can symbolize a timely reset in global society, or at the least, it heralds the start of our seasonal New Year at Spring Equinox, which this year, carries a Moon-Pluto Opposition signature showing that we're awash with expressions of deep feelings and emotional upsets floating about in the atmosphere along with potentials for violent actions, sorry to say. And so impressionable folk can pick up feelings swirling within their environments which are not actually theirs unless they know how to take steps to block them out. If they want to block them out, that is. And we must calmly assist them however we can.

So above is a dual view of two 17 South horoscopes for your consideration. Lower left is the initial 17 South of September 1, 1095 @14Vir19, and upper right is the Spring Equinox 17 South of March 20, 2015 @29Pis27 - conjunct the star of extreme misfortune, Scheat. So basically, this is what Trump in the White House brought the United States of America: the extreme misfortune of radical political operatives, and now he threatens a blo*dbath for the country and has already threatened "American carnage" back in January 2017.

Cosmic Time Links Knit Together Eclipses with History

These things tie in to what I believe Herr T thinks will be a carrying out of the 7 North themes of (blood-) "lust," the solar eclipse that manifested on April 20, 2023 @30Aries. This is the degree of warrior planet Mars during his J6 coup attempt - ongoing - and which conjoined the natal Sun of Herr Adolf (the Austrian psychopath's "birthday eclipse"), the serial murder*r who's Trump's mentor from the past, and whose plan for global domination agent orange hopes to fulfill as he and his comrades attempt to run roughshod over the American people, destroying and plundering as they go.

Significantly, 7 North is also the Eclipse Series which brought our country the Civil War conflagration of death and destruction. And it's quite a cosmic time link, I call it, and definitely a blo*dbath. This helps explain why on J6, a Confederate flag was carried into the Capitol Building, and, with the 7N eclipse conjunct the Sun in the American Revolution Horoscope, why we heard J6 insurrectionists and others mouthing words like "Civil War," "1776," and "American Revolution." It could be that someone uses astrological principles for timing purposes. After all, the Reagans did.

Now if you wish, check out the Horoscope of the upcoming 119th Congress with its karmic display of transit North Node conjunct the Aries Point. And if a massive, overwhelming Blue Tsunami of Voters fails to turn out this November 5th, we'll have only ourselves to blame for letting down future generations including our children and grandchildren.

Rounded up, 29Pis27 becomes "30 Pisces": "The Great Stone Face" in Sabian Symbols, and the final degree of the Zodiac. Here's my depiction of this symbol, Temple of the Great Stone Face:

A Cosmic Catch-Up with Roe v Wade

Beware: An Ancient Fist of God Packs a Punch

by Jude Cowell

Having been remiss since 2022 concerning the topic of Roe v. Wade and the Supreme Court's announcement overturning it on June 24, 2022, here's a small effort to catch up with the astrology of the two events. Below you see a bi-wheel of the Historic Law: Roe v Wade 1973 Horoscope (inner; RR: AA) and the Roe v Wade overturned horoscope (outer; my time stamp that morning); as you see, the comparison reveals several planetary contacts.

Penned on the charts are the two Solar Eclipses influencing each event: 11 North in 1973 in mid-Capricorn, and 6 North in Taurus in 2022; brief indications of their themes are listed, plus, other astro-notes are sprinkled messily around the charts. I direct your attention to a particular transit of eroding, fraudulent Neptune @29Pis37 (conjunct Nemesis in 1973 - veiled by Neptune--and conjunct the star of misfortune, Scheat at a critical 29th degree) exact on May 29, 2024 when the RvW 1973 Ascendant will receive the gaseous giant for the first time and this begins a period of four more conjunctions of urge-to-merge Neptune to the Roe v Wade ASC on into 2026. Of course, destablizing Neptunian influences have been increasing for some time since transit Neptune was @24Pisces (5-degree orb).

Another significant double contact comes in April 2024 when transit Saturn, then transit Mars, will square 1973's Mars-Saturn opposition and this activates the opposition and suggests applying extreme pressure to complete stalled work and possibly a deficiency in planning (M. Munkasey). And as you know, the Mars-Saturn duo tends toward destructive or harmful energy and risks of death, which is what Republicans are forcing upon American women, pregnant women and girls. Bizarrely, embryoes are now deemed to be children even though a child cannot be frozen as an embryo can. A total lack of logic may be noticed since Republican propaganda skips the brain and aims directly at the emotions - no critical thinking required or sought. And Herr T says he "loves the uneducated," as we know.

Then perhaps this is where the 1973 Roe v Wade Midheaven (The Goal Point) sneaks in: "30Sag" = "The Pope Blessing the Faithful." The negative expression of this degree includes: "A surrender to a lust for power" (M.E. Jones). Wonder who?

So what's my guess? Obviously, a continuance of Republican efforts to take away more of women's access to healthcare such as birth control pills and IVF therapy, plus, the federal abortion ban that Herr Trump is promoting these days. Because the orange albatross is under orders, you know, while grabbing power and control is the basic objective along with continuing plans to sabotage America. Meanwhile, gender and other related issues are involved in their power-grab as well, but they're beyond the scope of this post.

Strong-Armed Paternalism Demands Total Control

Now naturally there are multiple planetary influences from 2022 to 1973 other than the few mentioned in this post, and I'm quite certain that interested parties can locate them. Why, you may already have discovered them! After all, this is only a belated catch-up with the ill fortune of SCOTUS acting against American women as if handmaidism is all we're good for. That's simplisitic, yes, but not being of the Vatican persuasion, the papacy's traditional stance against abortion is their business, their choice, and has always helped to fill church pews, one assumes.

Besides, my firm belief is that you can't legislate morality which must come from inside the individual, not externally. Irrationally, Moses Mike wants to impose his morality on us all and outcomes promise to be much more than difficult.

Thing is, America's traditional separation of church and state is under attack so that theocracy can be forced upon us along with fascism which always uses religion to shove its way into a society. Now before I fuss further I should add a personal note: that all through my life, folks of the Catholic persuasion have been some of the kindest people I've known. But when it comes to the Vatican hierarchy, a hidden fact is that "the church" is what the Roman Empire morphed into once the Empire fell, so if you have a look at the Horoscope of the Roman Empire you'll find that it contains planetary contacts with the horoscopes shown, above. You'll also see a telling Fist of God (aka, Thor's Hammer) pattern pointing unsurprisingly toward lady Venus, planet of goddess archetypes that the church worships via graven images.

And symbolically this forceful, oppressive cosmic pattern from ancient times symbolizes what our current Christian Nationalists and others are attempting to do: shove the force of God behind their oppressive laws in the US in order to muddy the line between man's law and God's law - resulting in the very opposite of the Founding Fathers' enlightened vision for establishing the government of this country.

Then with the third of three Great American Eclipses arriving on April 8, 2024 @19Aries24 conjunct priestly Chiron, its 8 North themes of vivid dreams, visions, intuitive leaps, and insights (B. Brady) could be utilized to lift our thoughts toward a higher direction as Election 2024 nears, with a significant eclipse in Mars-ruled Aries timing a period when competitors can boldly confront circumstances within society by exercising initiative and positive leadership.

So if I were you, dear US reader, I'd vote Blue up and down the ballot on November 5, 2024 if positive leadership is the outcome you prefer for America.

(Note Feb 8, 2024: an edit has been made to correct from "foetus" to "embryo" - mah bad jc.

Neptune Returns to its Civil War Degree

by Jude Cowell, partisan for our democratic Republic

Today I'm studying several topics of interest concerning the United States of America so this post is merely to display for the interested reader the Horoscopes of the Civil War and the three times that Neptune Returns to its 1861 degree of 29Pis56:55.

This indicates that similar delusions, schemes, and fears abound within society once again and are prominent as we've seen with slavery issues (ex: Nikki Haley's mealy-mouthed non-answer to what caused the Civil War), and other related topics from the 1860s and subsequently (exs: the Reconstruction Era, and whether or not an insurrectionist can act as US President--understandably, Confederate president Jefferson Davis was prevented from ever holding public office again). The fact that maga Republicans, suffering from secessionist fever, frequently call for a second Civil War every chance they get must also be part of the Neptunian picture as Republicans work to undermine American democracy and collapse the federal government.

Using solar eclipses to suss out cosmic time links between events, conditions, and people the 7 North Eclipse Series is not only the series in which the Civil War began, it's also the Series of the Fascism Rising Eclipse of 1933 @5Pisces, the Prenatal Eclipse Series of Special Prosecutor Jack Smith, and of the very first session in 1789 of the US Congress - all were begun under the auspices of a 7 North Eclipse. In our day, 7 North repeated on April 20, 2023 @30Aries conjunct the J6 Mars position: violent insurrection.

So as you see below in the April 12, 1861 "first shot" horoscope of the conflagration (in dual image one: lower left), Neptune, planet of deception, fraud, fantasy, dreams, speculation, secrets, theft, and loss, was a prominent influence upon the War and in the chart, while mystical Pisces adds to the shadiness, confusion, and chaos of conditions. Paired with the first shot chart is the first of three returns of Neptune (upper right) to its 1861 position. Star of misfortune, Scheat @27Pisces, rises in the April 12, 1861 chart and nowadays is joined by transit Neptune.

Meanwhile, the years 2025 and 2026 mark the first time period that transit Neptune reaches its 1861 War degree, and as you know, all 29th degrees of each sign represent critical-crisis conditions, here @29Pisces - and just prior to transit Neptune entering Mars-ruled Aries once it passes the Cardinal Aries Point of global manifestation. Add difficult star Scheat to the mix and a pivotal crisis is in humanity's forecast:

Then the second image of dual charts, above, shows the second (lower left) and third (final; upper right) Neptune Return to the Civil War Horoscope. (The charts are sketchily notated because I ran out of time but curious readers can fill in what's missing if need be.)

A prominent notation penned underneath the third return chart of January 24, 2026 is the Saturn-Neptune Conjunction of February 20, 2026 @00Ari45, their first conjunction since 1989, with their combined energies spotlighting societal issues and health concerns, plus, governmental matters such as socialism, a wider struggle between materialism vs idealism, and/or a potential for the 'capitulation of a leader' (M. Munkasey).

A Chiron Return for the Orange Jupiterian

Of Fortune, Speculation, Opportunity, and Politics

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy and the common good

Born June 14, 1946 with a 2nd house Chiron @14Lib54:44 snugged between the speculation and grand schemes pair, Jupiter and Neptune, Donald Trump's Chiron Return occurred once on September 4, 1996 (horoscope shown, below). With all the significance this cosmic event occurring around the age of 50 can bring to us all in the areas of health, past hurts, and true life purpose, 1996 seems a prominent year in which to snoop into past Trump events and endeavors for any insights that may appear.

By doing so, I found that there was a wisp in the air back then of the potential for the Orange Jupiterian to run for president, fleeting as the notion was at the time. Perhaps it was one of those PR "run it up the flag pole to see who'll salute" experiments. Anyway, Trump declined, postponing his prez bid for a future year, as we know: 2015. Even so, you may wish to check out Police file: Trump sure of presidential win__in 1996.

Horoscope: Trump Chiron Return September 4, 1996 11:29:08 pm EDT Queens, NY; Gemini Rising with Moon @16Gem49 conjunct Rigel, trine Chiron; next to rise is his natal Uranus-NN-Sun trio; Midheaven ('MC') 20AQ32; as you see, there are major oppositions between the Venus-Mars Conjunction in Cancer and the Uranus-Neptune Conjunction in Capricorn falling across the 2/8 polarity of Money, Possessions, Credit, Debt, and Shared Resources; meanwhile, the Chiron-NN-Mercury trio is (karmically) intercepted in the 5th house of Risk-Taking, while Saturn opposing Mercury suggests obstacles and Trump's "the world is against me" martyrdom whenever it suits his purpose:

So when it comes to locating actual news articles from 1996 that concern Big Donnie and are still available online, financial reports and gossip mongering are the most prominent, although these days you may find all of them fairly loaded down with annoying ads. However, here are a couple that relate to his 2nd house Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune trio with his boundary-and-taboo-breaking Jupiter stationing, as you know:

From July 22, 1996, CNN Money cited Fortune Magazine's Donald Trump: An Ex-Loser Is Back In The Money about how Trump was "pouring over $4 million into the resort" in Atlantic City, what the article called his "biggest bets." Well, we know that despite casinos being a 'sure bet' in the money-making department, "King of Debt" Trump filed for bankruptcy from his gambling misadventures, managed to avoid personal bankruptcy bwo negotiating with creditors, and, despite all the loss, the Orange Jupiterian stated that "Atlantic City Fueled A Lot Of Growth For Me", as noted in a Benzinga article by staff writer Jeannine Mancini, November 13, 2023. Obviously, the current Trump fraud trial in New York has understandably stirred interest in his past financial activities.

Meanwhile, I keep waiting to hear the words "money laundering" attached to his name especially since "A Chinese Laundry" is the Sabian Symbol for his natal 4th house Moon @22Sagittarius. Note that in the lower right corner of the chart the Moon-Chiron trine describes potentials for "Import-export activities' (!), and 'ideas can charm the public' (M. Pottenger). Well, some of the public.

Then intriguingly, transit Chiron now in mid-Aries opposes Trump's natal Chiron in mid-Libra which qualifies as the 'Full Moon culmination phase' of his Chiron Cycle, a halfway point. This opposition is at least part of the basis for 1996 events appearing on Trump's menu these days (hence this post!), plus, this Chirotic period gives him an opportunity to correct past mistakes and make amends, similar to the function of the Saturn Cycle, planet of karma and accountability. Thing is, his Chiron in Libra 'values competition' while Chiron in Aries values the need to 'know more' (M. Pottenger) - like some kind of prosecutor going after the facts a sneaky criminal tries to hide.

And if we add to the picture Trump's natal 10th house Uranus' "18Gemini" degree - his guiding (oriental) planet of chaos, disruption, and rebellion - a curious word picture appears along similar oriental lines, "Two Chinese Men Talking Chinese in a Western Crowd." For me this indicates China lurks behind the Russian involvement with the 2016 election and beyond, not that reporters have been eager in the last few years to mention Trump's China connection, other than his having a bank acount in China, plus, the patents China granted to Ivanka. Trump acts as figurehead for our enemies determined to remove of America from global leadership.

Then on December 30, 2022 came The Guardian's Trump tax returns show China bank account as six years of records released meaning his tax returns from 2015 to 2020. As noted, the Orange Jupiterian announced his run for president in 2015 with the star of extreme misfortune, Scheat involved, and 2020 was his final full year occupying the White House with document-purloining on his mind.

Now you're welcome to disagree, but my suspicion is that the Orange Jupiterian was sent to Washington to do just that.

So there's a look at the Orange Jupiterian for today. A previous post adds context if you wish to consider Trump In the Realms of Jupiter. And yes, he is a huge lot to consider!

KKK Act part of J6 Indictment Counts

Back in February 2021 on SO'W, a post appeared concerning Eclipses, Klans, Prez Bids, Despots, and Empires. Contained within was a dual image of two manifestations of a 17 South Solar Eclipse, an image also shown, below. This suggests a cosmic time link between Trump's 'prez bid' of 2015, made under the auspices of the Spring Equinox 2015 Solar Eclipse (17 South @29Pisces - conjunct fixed star of misfortune and imprisonment, Scheat), and the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 which the US Congress passed on April 20, 1871.

Updated to current events, in the August 1, 2023 Indictment of Donald Trump on four counts related to his failed coup attempt of January 6, 2021 is the fact that one of the four counts ('conspiracy against rights') is said to make use of the KKK Act intended to protect our nation against insurrection attempts such as the Civil War which was also started under deceptive influences (ASC = Mercury-Neptune: being deceived, exploited; Trump's natal Mercury-Neptune square deceives and exploits).

Significantly, the Civil War of 1861 began under the influence of a 7 North Eclipse which is the solar eclipse in effect now since April 20th (@29Ari50, the position of seditionist Mars on J6 indicating violent acts), plus, 7 North happens to be the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') Series of Jack Smith; see his eclipse link, below.

As can be seen in the bi-wheel shown above and in yesterday's post concerning Trump's arraignment in DC scheduled for August 3, 2023 (tomorrow), the 17 South Eclipse of 2015 conjunct Scheat landed upon the natal Moon of Fred Trump, the papa who made Donald the man-baby he is today.

So here's an excerpt from the above-linked post concerning the 17 South Eclipse of 1870 (@00Cap30, a Cardinal World Point of manifestation) and it's occurrence in March 2015, an eclipse series which inspired both the passage of the KKK Act of 1871, and Trump's 'prez bid' announcement of June 16, 2015 delivered from Trump Tower NYC with his racist remarks signaling the bigotry and extremism to come:

{The KKK Act of 1871} "now being considered for use against Trump and his comrades."

And so as a partisan for the common good of the American people, and the entire world, I'm taking this opportunity to thank Special Counsel Jack Smith for his dedicated work on the case of Donald Trump, first 'president' to ignite a seditionist insurrection against the government of the United States of America in the hope of retaining the powerful office he could no longer legally hold.

Trump J6 Arraignment Aug 3, 2023

Like Father Like Son, Two Natal Horoscopes: Fred and Donald Trump

As you've heard, late on Tuesday afternoon (August 1, 2023) an indictment of Donald Trump on 4 counts relating to his J6 coup attempt was announced by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

A planetary factor that really stands out this week is transit Sun in Leo conjunct Trump's 12th house Pluto (10Leo02) which happens to be the apex planet of his Mars-Saturn midpoint, which Reinhold Ebertin calls the death axis.

Since America's orange albatross began his presidential saga in June 2015 (under the auspices of the star of misfortune, Scheat), Trump has demonstrated how willingly he can manipulate his dangerous midpoint picture, Mars-Saturn = Pluto with the fury, destruction, intervention of a higher power, and the "deaths of many people" it entails. Add the nasty, enraged star Algol twinkling upon his Midheaven (The Goal Point), and the corpses can pile up (Algol in Chinese Astrology).

Then by the day of his J6 arraignment, announced for Thursday August 3, 2023 at 4:00 pm edt Washington DC, the Sun will clock in @11Leo14, still within range of shining upon Trump's deadly midpoint picture so that potentially we have: natal Mars-Saturn = tr Sun: 'inability to meet all demands or master all situations' (R.E.); 'a sense of loss; breaking down under stress and strain; eking it out; possible threat to body or health' (Tyl).

Then of course, the Sun-to-Pluto transit casts a spotlight on power, abuse of power issues, and ego concerns all on its own. But with this particular career criminal Trump, we get even more, Trump-style: we get danger and threats from a bruised ego fearing that someone might dump a bowl of mashed potatoes on his head. Or worse yet, lock 'im up.

Well, it's after 1:00 am here so typing any more about this subject must wait for a less sleepy time. Thanks a bunch for reading my late-night musings concerning the litigious scofflaw they call Trump. In closing, I'll leave you with a link to a previous post that displays two horoscopes: the 'J6 Maga Mob Attack' and the Maga Mob Attack's Solar Return 2023 Horoscope where you'll find the Trump J6 Arraignment Sun of August 3rd @11Leo14 shining brightly upon its Midheaven (11Leo26) along with the natal Pluto = Mars-Saturn trio of the orange albatross!

Nazism Then and Now: The Threat Is Real

Nazi Era 1933--1945: The GOP Has Brought Back the Primal Violence?

by Jude Cowell: pro-democracy all the way

On April 20, 2023, what I've previously termed "Hitler's birthday eclipse" in the 7 North Saros Series manifested @29Ari50, the degree of warrior planet Mars on January 6, 2021, the day of the maga mob attack against the US Congress on behalf of Donald Trump. One would have to be a head-hiding ostrich not to see the connection with the current poisonous infiltration into American institutions of Hitler-loving sabtoteurs of the political class.

Through this Mars-Eclipse synchronicity, a cosmic time link is revealed between Hitler, his Nazism and dictator-wanna-be Trump along with the scofflaw vigilantes and thugs he set loose on January 6th to stop the vote certification for Joe Biden. Outrageously, complicit Republican politicians of a fascist persuasion now "serve" in the House of the 118th Congress, with sabotage and the protection of indicted criminal Trump on their to-do list.

Old Boss 'Same' as the New?

Not necessarily because a total reversal of their cruel plans is certainly possible with our persistent determination and the power of truth on our side. One necessary aid in the struggle is to know what democracy is once again up against. Therefore, for those who might appreciate it, historical information concerning Nazi Germany and the Third Reich is readily available online and includes details concerning the old Nazi ideology of their mislabeled "national socialism" which animated Hitler and his fellow criminals hiding behind its facade, a group with extreme resentments beginning with Germany's humiliation over the Treaty of Versailles, signed on June 28, 1919; the provisions of the Treaty ending World War One (WWI) went into effect on January 10, 1920.

Now as you know, "national socialism" was a ruse to fool the German population with the illusion that Herr Adolf and his brutal gangsters worked for the common man as they stoked resentments already within German society. If this exploitation from the Nazi era sounds familiar, you must be an American experiencing the 'Trump era' which I count from his Gemini 'prez bid' New Moon of June 16, 2015, the morning of his descent on the "golden escalator" of Trump Tower NY when he delivered a racist speech to a paid-off audience, $50 per head. It was political thespianism by a B-list reality TV "star" with a longstanding dream of being president but was really an announcement of what he and his wealthy backers intended as the death knell of democracy in America, and the vanquishing of America as global leader. We might also time our Trump troubles beginning with the Spring Equinox 2015 Eclipse, its energies made more sinister by its conjunction with Scheat, the star of misfortune and extremism.

So when it comes to exploiting resentments in society for selfish purposes, perhaps we can agree that in our day, there may never be a man more resentful and begrudging against others than the Mango Mussolini!

So in closing, here's a related SO'W post published in February 2011 (!) which was intended as a forewarning of our present difficulties that only ostriches can ignore now that they're no longer hiding behind 'the Republican party' label and are prancing around openly - Horoscope: Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse 1933 (then and now). Perhaps you can see, dear reader, that I've been writing and warning about the sadistic 'white power' criminals (Adolf's 'Aryanism' on steroids) attempting to take over America for quite a long while.

Year 2015: Our Trump Troubles Begin

DC Horoscope: Spring Equinox 2015 and the 'Prez Bid' New Moon of Misfortune

by Jude Cowell

As a cosmic signpost on America's path toward troublesome authoritarian issues of which Trump is merely a figurehead for what is actually a global fascist movement, anyone who expects the venerable practice of Astrology to explain when America's 'Trump Troubles' got up and running might appreciate the Spring Equinox 2015 Horoscope when the Sun hit the Aries Point of world events (an annual event) and conjoins Scheat, the star of misfortune.

Yet as you see in the horoscope, below, there's another feature of the Sun's entry into Mars-ruled Aries in Spring 2015: a midpoint picture formed that year with potentials for 'effective illusions and deceptions; a noted magician performs (M. Munkasey); and/or 'danger of infection; weakness' (R. Ebertin), among other possibilities upon which the Spring EQ 2015 Sun shone and activated. And perhaps, dear reader, we may agree that these potentials have been applicable to events during these last 7 years along with several other planetary factors you see here:

US Mars-Neptune Square On Display: Misguided Actions, Confusion, Fog of War

Ascending is America's natal Neptune with transit Neptune in Pisces opposing (clash of ideals, persecutions), square Midheaven, the Goal Point, conjunct US 1776 Mars in Gemini; Hour of Jupiter (in green, in Leo, and Rx in 11th house) with Jupiter prominent as the handle of a Bucket shape and ruling 4th and 7th houses. As you see, the IC @23Sag05, the Basis or Foundation of the Matter, presciently holds the 4 South Solar Eclipse which occurred on the day of the December 14, 2020 Electoral Vote Count, and lies at the heart of our turbulent, mercurial, Uranian Trump Troubles due to his sore loser 'Big Lie' refusal to accept reality.

Then Mercury in shady Pisces as chart and Midheaven ruler reveals the significance of communications, information, propaganda, oration/rhetoric, trade, commerce, and education to the proceedings with one applying aspect by quicksilver Mercury from its 6th house position (conjunct veiling Neptune: "The Illusionist" when conjunct - A. Oken) - and that's an opportunistic sextile with power planet Pluto, the saboteur. See lower left corner for a few details including Trump's tendency toward morbid thinking (which he seems to be feeling 'for real' now as grim reality knocks upon his door).

Meanwhile, the conjunction in 6th house points toward Trump's natal Mercury-Neptune square of "The Sneaky Mind" (A.O.). Also see the center of the chart with Mercury inconjunct Jupiter: distorted perspectives (supported by unaspected Venus' unusual perspectives and loner status), plus, a tendency toward grandiosity: ya think?

So one reason to post this horoscope in September 2022 is to note that Trump's 'prez bid' New Moon @25Gem07 conjunct Mars (violent, headstrong) which perfected on the morning of June 16, 2015 occurred within the Spring 2015 season (and is listed on the chart, middle right, highlighted in orange, like a fake tan on an old man). Of course, you remember the morning of his Escalator Descent at Trump Tower NYC to announce his 2016 campaign for president to a paid audience, $50 a head, to express his vile bigotry as a signal to "his people".

Uranian Trump

Now this 2015 Gemini New Moon fell between Trump's 10th house Uranus-NN-Sun trio in Gemini and it started a cosmic clock (New Moon, new cycle) by activating the degree of the 1781 Discovery of Uranus, America's totem planet of freedom, independence, rebellion, protest, disruption, and - most importantly to Trump - chaos.

And America has been yoked to the orange blighter ever since.

Previously on SO'W: Trump's 'Prez Bid' Solar Eclipse @29Pis27: 17 South which perfected March 20, 2015 at 5:36 am edt (hours before the chart shown, above) with karmic Saturn Rx at Midheaven, often a 'downfall' indication if timekeeper Saturn's demands for responsibility, accountability, and doing one's duty are ignored.

And such is Donald Trump.

Horoscope of the J6 Hearing July 21, 2022

DC Horoscope: J6 Public Hearing July 21, 2022 8:00 pm edt Cannon Office Bldg Washington DC:

Saturn Square Uranus: 'Old Order' Rule of Law vs 'New Order' Utopian Anarchy of Lawlessness and Chaos

by Jude Cowell

What a horoscope! For opposite (US 1776) Pluto Rx rising is asteroid of democracy, Ceres, closely conjunct the goal-oriented Sun @29Can11, a degree which when rounded-up = "A Daughter of the American Revolution." Perhaps because this degree's Sabian Symbol links to my natal Mars but for me, this shows both democracy and revolution in the hearing's spotlight, just as it should be, for this is the crossroad that America has reached at this point in time. And although it makes me very fussy, maybe the prognostication I read years ago: "1776 - 2025" will turn out to be accurate with Inauguration 2025, said to be our country's last.

However, please note that our nation does Not have to discard democracy and turn authoritarian, at least not under Democrats. To that milder end, this where I type, Vote Blue in 2022 - and avoid voting for candidates of the bizarre, freakishly paternalistic Chastity Belt Party now passing laws that 'legalize' the rape and marriage of young girls, among other anti-societal ruinous ideas. Your choice, of course. But please think of your daughters and the other ladies in your life.

As for the July 21st chart, see lower left corner for retrograde, karmic chart-ruler Saturn's one applying aspect, a square with zealous Uranus. The square will perfect on October 23, 2022 which may turn out to be a significant date especially since it comes tweo days prior to the difficult 6 South October 25, 2022 Solar Eclipse @2Scorpio conjunct the 1949 Ascendant of NATO (Putin's enemy), and with Nazi vibes in play.

Meanwhile, we should note that the ruler of crossroads, Mercury @5Leo08, conjuncts America's 1776 North Node of destiny! And you know that people here and across the world are aware that America is poised at the turning point of Democracy vs Fascism with paternalistic authoritarianism attempting to take total control of America as it has tried in the past, and failed. Unfortunately this time, the anarchic forces of evil and corruption are better organized with more members who, for some reason, assume that they'll come out okay, even exalted, after the dust settles. How stunned will they be to find that they and theirs will not be 'okay' at all? Taking forceful control of the 2022 Midterm Elections is suggested by themes of the 6 South October Solar Eclipse as saboteurs try to make historic events of the 1930s repeat in November 2022. Let's not allow it.

Now also in the horoscope, above, ascending is the Full Moon of July 13, 2022 @21Cap21 which we might remember since it perfected the day after the J6 Hearing of July 12th so during Thursday's hearing, something presented then may return for review or rehash, and probably will since the hearings are an ongoing process meant to hold accountable those responsible for disrupting our traditional peaceful transfer of power, and committing violent acts of insurrection on behalf of you-know-who.

Actually, there are multiple indications rising in the 8:00 pm edt horoscope of the July 21st 'Prime Time' hearing (unless a rescheduling occurs) such as the harsh, compressive January 2020 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of evil, Trump's natal Vertex ('VX'), a point of fated encounters or wish fulfillment, and the January 6, 2021 'mob attack' Ascendant @15Tau54 at 1:00 pm est.

South Node "21 Scorpio" = "A Soldier Derelict In His Duty": "Complete Faithlessness to the Common Welfare" (M. E. Jones)

So as you see in the chart, Luna @15Tau18 also conjuncts the 8:00 pm IC, the HOW? Point and Foundation of the Matter, with warrior planet Mars conjunct IC as well but from the 3rd house of Communications. Maybe the July 21st hearing set to reveal what the faithless Trump did and didn't do while happily watching his coup attempt on TV against the US Congress as events progressed (gallows and all), and Americans were being maimed and killed in Trump's name, is what in a sense yours truly has waited for for years, ever since I noticed the 2020 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction landing upon Trump's natal Vertex. Fingers crossed!

We may hear from a 'woman of strong principles' or two with the intense Moon-Mars combo opposing MC and the Uranus-North-Node duo of radical reformist politics nearby in 4th house. As mentioned, opposite is the neurotic derelict soldier conjunct South Node of past behavior in the very visible 10th house of Public Status. Is that Cadet Bone Spurs on display?

Meanwhile, there's always the dire admonition of Regulus rising with Trump's natal Mars fulfilling his threatened destiny of "all that's been gained will be taken away" for those who take revenge. And as you know, 'revenge' is the orange blighter's middle name - and now it's the Republican Party's perogative to use violence. Video: Chris Hayes On the Implied Threat When Republicans Use Guns as Props in their campaign ads. Note that the organized crime duo of Neptune-Pluto @26AQ18 conjuncts the Anti-Vertex axis.

Now you may wish to consider the three stars rising with planets in this chart, one in particular is Pluto (now in process of the 2022 US Pluto Return which is also rising) and showing the J6 hearings as response to Trump's 2021 coup attempt and a major part of our destructuring Pluto Return - with effective rebuilding to follow ("positive social reform" star Zuben Elgenubi conjuncts MC). Additionally, higher powered Pluto Rx leads a ruthless Locomotive shape of planets, and rises on July 21st with Scheat, star of 'extreme misfortune, murder, suicide, malevolence, imprisonment' (A. Louis). As you know, it was Scheat that influenced Trump's 'prez bid' announcement at the Gemini New Moon of June 16, 2015 which fell snugly into the 17 South Saros Series of the Spring Equinox Eclipse of March 2015 - conjunct Scheat.

So now in 2022 the time has arrived for the piper to be paid, and the starring 'pied piper' is Donald Trump who, if any justice is left in the world, will be held accountable for his criminality and sedition - and will be the one who pays his debt to society since, in America, no one is above the law.

So let's consider a midpoint picture of potentials suggested here of 2020 Saturn-Pluto = July 21, 2022 ASC: "silent power or continuing influence" (M. Munkasey), plus, "placed in cumbersome and difficult circumstances; separation; mourning and bereavement" (R. Ebertin) with more than a little "sadness" added to the picture as well (N. Tyl).

Trump's Pluto = Mars-Saturn: Death of Many People; Fury; Intervention by a Higher Power (R. Ebertin)

Descriptively, the chart's Saturn-Pluto midpoint @10AQ57 in 1st house (with both powerful Pluto and legal eagle Saturn) opposes Trump's natal Pluto which indicates potentials for: "choosing either good or evil and dedicating one's life to eliminating the other; extreme changes" (M. Munkasey). In Putin pal Trump's case, we've seen that "the other" includes the United States of America and the American people as Krushchev's 1953 "we will bury you" threat plays out. One clue is the Neptune-Pluto duo of Organized Crime @26AQ18, as noted, conjunct the Anti-Vertex, and opposing Trump's natal Mars (26Leo46) - conjunct the hearing's Vertex! Look to corporate Cupido in 8th house for more information.

So we have Trump's mob-like activities in the spotlight Thursday evening with his Vertex in governmental Capricorn rising, along with his being "used as a tool" (by Russia? China? Neo-Nazis? Fascists? Other? All of them?). And for those who prefer the third-decan of Aquarius for the US Moon of 1776 (We The People), add "big mood sweeps" and/or "anxiety" (N. Tyl). Hopefully, restless minds will be changed (and eyes opened!) by the factual evidence presented at the J6 Hearings.

Now obviously, the current Saros Series (6 North) applies to all of the June and July Public J6 Hearings with themes of "relationship to authority figures" and "commitments accepted due to another person's unreliability or illness" (paraphrasing B. Brady), the meaning of which became clearer this very day with the announcement that J6 Chairman Bennie Thompson has just been diagnosed with Covid. Therefore, perhaps Rep. Liz Cheney will gavel in Thursday's hearing and it's been reported that the other Republican serving on the J6 Select Committee, Adam Kinzinger, will lead the proceedings Thursday night.

Wishing a quick recovery for Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi!

Well, there's much more to the above horoscope and subject, but that's all I have today although additions may turn up. So leave your on-topic insights if you wish, and Thanks a Bunch for reading and sharing! Jude

DC Horoscope: Pluto Stations Oct 8, 2022

by Jude Cowell

Here's a quick posting of a DC Horoscope showing Pluto's Station @26Cap06 the moment that wealthy Mr. Subversive, the puppet master, pauses (as viewed from Earth) and begins moving forward. Zodiacally, transit Pluto has been creeping through old territory since turning retrograde in late April 2022 @28Cap35; as you see, many study notes are penned upon the chart including Pluto's rounded-up Sabian Symbol spotlighted by his Station: "A Mountain Pilgrimage" with its negative expressions of "superficial allegiances" and "false virtue."

Then as you see in Washington DC, Pluto Stations in 11th house, a position suggesting 'powerful political groups and organizations' but can also hint at the loss of a group member; also note that star of misfortune, Scheat, rises with two midpoints: fantasy-prone Moon-Neptune of mass delusion, and the grand-spirit, speculative, bubbly pair of Jupiter-Neptune, a duo that often can include religious ideals (fake or genuine). Then as you see, the Sabian Symbol in The Goal position (MC) of the chart is, "The Pope Blessing the Faithful". And note that these planets form a Seesaw pattern of pros vs cons (progressives vs conservatives) suggesting that tiresome political quarrels continue while the needs of the populace languish:

Worth a mention is the Mars-Pluto inconjunction indicating potentials for obsessive agendas and scorched earth competition, aka, cutthroat competition (Pluto, the assassin?). This inconjunction (quincunx) echoes America's 1776 Mars-Pluto relationship from Gemini to Capricorn along with a second cosmic echo: a foggy Mars-Neptune square of misdirected energy and misguided actions (see bottom right corner). Now not everyone will suffer under or use such difficult energies against humanity but we're talking Politics here so you know the ones who probably will.

Then for society in general, there's another highly significant factor - that rising Neptune Rx @23Pis26 continues to oppose US 1776 Neptune in the more fact-based sign of Virgo which describes major ideological clashes, some of a generational nature, plus, persecutions in the realms of civil and human rights, rascism included. And as you know, astrological Pluto (the dragon and The Pope) never minds benefiting from a heaping load of exploitation, you know. Money laundering, theft, and protecting his hidden wealth are his jams.

That this Neptunian transit of opposition proceeds in 2022, the year of America's first-ever Pluto Return, only adds to the complexities of conditions now operative in US society and makes clear that larger forces erode many of our institutions, systems, laws and traditions. Karmic in nature, these planetary transits show that the time has come for America to alter what needs altering but most of us hope for improvements, not dissolution! And we could have made such alterations without interference from bad faith meddlers, but this wasn't their plan.

And so these active Neptunian and Plutonian energies describe what I continue to assert are being purposefully taken advantage of by foreign and domestic saboteurs, working as agents of a global criminal network of mobsters and thugs, many of whom are, or are aligned with, international financiers and corporatists (a lucrative business arrangement for conscience-free opportunists, no doubt). In fact, the Neptune-Pluto duo of organized crime and misogynist paternalism is having its underhanded way just now, and America has congressional Democrats to deal with this global authoritarian movement raising its brutal head once again from the 1930s. To me this means that criticizing Democrats, well meaning as it may be, tends to undermine their efforts on our behalf and gives energy and support to America's enemies - my personal view but naturally you have yours.

October 9th a Full Moon @16Ari33, then a Solar Eclipse

Additionally, a major cosmic event arrives a mere 17 days after Pluto's Station, the October 25, 2022 Solar Eclipse @2Scorpio in the difficult 6 South Saros Series which I've labeled, A House Raising mainly due to its political implications, plus, it is the Prenatal Eclipse of Midterms 2022 (the very day of a Taurus Lunar Eclipse conjunct radical Uranus, planet of chaos). And to me it seems that the 6 South Solar Eclipse occurs close enough to Pluto's Station to have some measure of disruptive 'wild card' influence in relation to the horoscope you see, above (in 7th house).

So unless you, dear reader, are an out-and-out fascist with neo-nazi leanings (or vice versa), remember to Vote Blue in 2022 - and in 2024.

Because our democracy, our freedoms, and our lives literally depend upon it.

Horoscope of the 1st Public J6 Hearing: "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding"

UPDATE June 4, 2022: It has come to my attention that the exact location of the June 9th J6 public hearing will be the Cannon Office Building, south of the Capitol. Calculating the horoscope for this location (38N53:13 77W00:25) makes no difference whatsoever to cusps, houses, or planets. Basically it gives the same horoscope as you see, below, for any differences there may be are negligible.

Therefore, my original post begins here, sans edits:

June 3, 2022

Uranus-Neptune Septile: Fated Events That Concern Catastrophe

by Jude Cowell

Below is a belated posting of the First Public J6 Hearing on June 9, 2022 8:00 pm edt Capitol Building Washington DC; study notes are penned on the chart such as fixed stars and certain Eclipses that are being pointed toward for our past and future considerations (unnotated on the chart in 5th house is the current 6 North Solar Eclipse @10Tau28 with its descriptive themes of 'relationship to authority figures' and 'accepting commitments due to another person's unreliability or illness' - B. Brady).

Chart-ruler (and hearing-ruler) Jupiter @5Ari04 (in Aries: the truth seeker) is highlighted in green and makes no applying aspects in the chart so its house and sign are prominent with 4th house denoting domestic and security issues. This position of Jupiter indicates a Jupiter-opposite-Neptune transit for Tr*mp, a period when someone is deceiving him (or he them, of course), and illusion, delusion, and confusion abound. He will not be dealing with events in a realistic way but what else is new, right? This is an unpredictable transit, but those who offer him fantastical schemes should be avoided for best results.

Yet we know that he's usually the one inventing fantastical schemes thought up from within his world of fantasy as he listens to the malicious, grudge-holding voices in his head. We can expect that confidential matters will be exposed especially concerning finances with his Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune trio in his 2nd house of Money and Possessions. And maybe his and his comrades playing fast and loose with America's National Treasury could be addressed although the J6 hearings may not be the proper venue for revealing such matters.

Now 8:00 pm edt on June 9th is a Mercury Hour (suitable for hearings, messages, questions, testimony, reporting) and Mercury @27Tau44 is in 6th house and rises with Menkar ('saying what must be said') conjunct US Inaugural Ascendant (Oath of Office), plus, de-structuring, transformative Pluto, planet of subversion and hidden wealth, is in process of performing America's first-ever Pluto Return. On June 9th, Pluto rises with the star of extreme misfortune, Scheat. Obviously, issues of America as a Plutocracy have been on everyone's minds for some time which brings in our national Mercury-Pluto opposition of total surveillance, and knowledge is power concerns.

So expectably, some secrets will be withheld during the hearings which is typical due to the fact that they're being held in public and this is often Washington's justification for neglecting to divulge all the facts due to 'national security', as you know, so we'll see how things proceed by the final hearing on June 23rd (8:00 pm edt) with the public Moon @6Tau13 conjunct Inauguration Day 2021's incendiary Mars-Uranus Conjunction (6Tau44) indicating potentials for aggression from those who support the overthrow of the US government.

Meanwhile, Ceres will have moved on to 16Can51 - conjunct and reflecting Tr*mp's natal Nemesis (16Can40) and while he seems to feel that democracy is his enemy, I do believe it's the other way around for the wide-girthed foreign agent orange.

To read more notes, please enlarge or print the image for other chart factors are listed on the chart:

Now as you see, the above chart Angles conjunct those of America's late afternoon horoscope of July 4, 1776 and I mention this synchronicity even though it may ruffle the feathers of a few of my favorite astrologers (who know who they are). Oh well - maybe they'll never read this post.

Then there's the speculative Jupiter-Neptune pair at the bottom of the chart, and although in disassociate signs, suggests the political conflicts and scandals at the base of the matter. This may also indicate that fortune seekers, wastrels, and evangelicals are involved but we don't need Astrology to tell us this!

Democracy vs Predatory Authoritarianism

Then when it comes to Democracy, both lower and upper case, in the horoscope there's nurturing Ceres, asteroid signifying democracy, @10Can47 in 7th house - and descriptively we find that hellish Hades conjoins Ceres - also @10Can47. As you know, Uranian planet Hades contains Scorpio-Virgo qualities indicating potentials for analysis and investigation, breaking down into parts, dealing with hidden and unpleasant things, and has a close association with Pluto as god of The Underworld. Therefore, mobsterism (infesting our democracy) is denoted since those are the types of criminals the J6 public hearings must deal with.

And note that, besides the suggestion of karma or fate found via the septile (52 degr 26 mins) between transpersonal planets Uranus and Neptune, the nwo pair of The Enlightenment, the Vertex ('VX') @27Can13 falls in the 8th house (VX not marked on the chart) which places the anti-Vertex conjunct Pluto (and US 1776 Pluto). So with Pluto being one of the planets of karma, America's fate as a democracy is definitely on the line through the outcomes of the J6 hearings and by how the DOJ will respond to the hearings' conclusions.

Meanwhile, the primary point of focus is the handle of a Bucket shape - the 10th house Moon @18Lib06 - conjunct the natal stationary Jupiter of D. Tr*mp with an interesting Sabian Symbol ('19Libra') that to me seems very much to apply: "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding." Well hopefully, they'll no longer be in hiding via the J6 hearings with the June 9th Moon in the very visible 10th house reflecting the orange Jupiterian's expansive activities, financial, foreign, and political in particular. Perhaps the orange instigator's obvious happiness (Moon-Jupiter) during his violent coup attempt of January 6, 2021 will be mentioned during the hearings, as it well should be. His reckless behavior on January 6th is evidence of his complicity.

And yet considering that the public J6 hearings will open during the ongoing transiting midpoint picture of Pluto-NN = Neptune, it's possible that revealing the 'gaining advantages through the use of fraud and lies' tendencies of Herr T and his comrades may or may not result in successful DOJ indictments and prosecutions for, after all, suggested are longterm systemic problems affecting everyone in society.

And this means that if you're not a perpetrator of Trumpian crimes, dear reader, you might just be a victim.

So to close, a quick look at the June 23rd horoscope shows a practical Water-Earth Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus blend of conscious and unconscious energies which are shared natally by Jazz era legend Miss Josephine Baker, inventor of the riske banana dance. And in my estimation, a famous quote from her relates to the infamous condition of 'emperor' Tr*mp whose robe of authority and fitness for office has always been questioned,

"I wasn't really naked, I simply didn't have any clothes on."

Well, if they're not aborted or sabotaged in some way, the J6 hearings could conclude with 'emperor' Tr*mp even naked-er than before, if that's even possible.

Cardinal World Points Through Year 2022

Zero-Degree Points of Manifestation Time Global Events and Important Energy Shifts within the Collective

by Jude Cowell

Back in November 2021 here on SO'W, we discussed the Spring Equinox 2022 Horoscope, aka, Aries Ingress 2022, a timed chart of a regularly occurring cosmic event that's always 'good for' an entire year. Transits to the horoscope and its planets are quite instructive for those who wish to follow along as the year proceeds. And due to Putin's war against neighboring Ukraine begun on February 24, 2022, we even considered a Spring Equinox 2022 Horoscope cast for Moscow, Russia with its sprinkle of 29-degree critical-crisis angles and planets, impulsively striving to enter their next signs, hoping for new conditions.

Here Again is the DC Horoscope of Spring Equinox 2022 (details linked, above):

Next on the cosmic calendar is Summer Solstice 2022 and I've yet to publish its DC Horoscope (mea culpa! too much going on) - wait! yes it's published!. Well, here's a post concerning 2022's June and July shifts of direction of societal planets Jupiter and Saturn. Note that Jupiter will remain retrograde @29Pisces (conjunct Scheat) until after the November 8th Midterm Elections. And for context, see the US Solar Return 2022 Horoscope set for Washington DC, suggesting that people and actions continue to be obscured by 'veils and fantasies'.

Then marching in the 2022 Cardinal World Point parade comes Autumn Equinox 2022 with an unaspected (disengaged, alienated?) Moon. Or perhaps this lunar condition reveals a public left out of consideration as the ruling elite class 'makes arrangements' to suit themselves. You know - like justice Alito determined that what a large majority of We The People want concerning Roe v Wade makes no never mind to radical reactionary justices on the SCOTUS bench such as his nibs, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, and handmaiden Barrett. Perhaps we can agree, dear reader, that morality cannot be legislated externally, and that bossily forcing one's religious views upon others leads to disaster. Yet We The People can do something about this for significantly, the 2022 Midterm Elections take place during the Autumn season. In fact, Blue Tsunami Waves of pro-democracy voters in November 2022 and again in November 2024 are required for America's karmic progress, no matter who the candidates turn out to be!

And of course, winding up Year 2022 is Winter Solstice 2022 with its DC location showing Cardinal World Points prominently on the chart's Ascendant-Descendant angles of Self and Others. This solar shift to 00Capricorn00:00 will take us from December 2022 and the holiday season into the early weeks of Year 2023 and will influence events until Spring Equinox 2023 takes over, and the seasonal cycle identified by the 'Sun to Cardinal Points of Manifestation' begins all over again.

Meanwhile, on an astrological level, the Summer, Autumn, and Winter Cardinal Point horoscopes (Sun to 00Cancer, 00Libra, 00Capricorn, all critical-crisis degrees as is the Aries Point) may be used as transit charts in comparison with the Spring Equinox Horoscope for timing and other purposes because, as noted, the March 2022 Aries Ingress Horoscope is 'good for' the entire year so therefore is the most prominent annual horoscope.
