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.

Also related is the Horoscope of the Third Reich, January 30, 1933, 90 years ago. A study of transits to this chart and its progressions is revealing concerning our current societal conditions.

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:

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.

Summer 2022: Jupiter and Saturn Station

June-July: Societal Planets Jupiter and Saturn Regress

April 18, 2022

by Jude Cowell

Because there are multiple July 4, 1776 horoscopes for America there are multiple positions of US natal Moon (We The People). There are other dates that closely apply to the founding of our country as well but since transit Saturn now trods through Aquarius, let's consider US Moons in the 18-28 degrees of Aquarius depending upon the (July 4th) hour used. You'll notice the IC area of the June 4, 2022 chart showing Saturn at Rx Station (lower left chart #1, Saturn Rx highlighted in blue) @25AQ15. So for those who use July 4, 1776 horoscopes for America, the American people are already navigating what constitutes a period of a Saturn-to-Moon transit of restriction, illness (more Covid cases, one imagines, plus, mental conditions), and feelings of privation (emotional, financial, familial, or ?).

For the later degrees of a US Aquarian Moon (28/29AQ), it will be Spring 2023 before the Saturn-to-Moon transit lifts (moves out of orb) although Saturn's depressive or limiting influences will have waned earlier in 2023. However, for some of us who need such lessons, a demanding Saturn transit can time a period of soberness, strategy, and ambition with perhaps an extra amount of studying tossed in:

Then as you see, upper right is the DC Horoscope of the moment that transit Jupiter at Rx Station (in green) is about to move regressively but will turn Direct on or about November 23, 2022 @28Pis48. Obviously, Jupiter's path in 2022 includes crossing the premiere Cardinal World Point of Aries (00Ari00:00; manifestation of world events), and when at 29Pisces, Jupiter activates the star of misfortune, Scheat. My hope is that expansive Jupiter's protective function might kick in and mitigate negative effects of Scheat but we'll have to see.

Of course, the current societal dance between Jupiter and Saturn began with their Great Conjunction (aka, Mutation into an Air sign) at Winter Solstice 2020 on December 21, 2020 @00AQ29 conjunct POTUS (Inaugural) Sun which at that time was a role still (haphazardly) played by kleptocrat Tr*mp.

And here's a link to the often debated July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Horoscope of America with Jupiter exalted in Cancer and Saturn exalted in Libra.

Horoscope: Aries Ingress 2022 Moscow

February 28, 2022

With so much going on today, I only have time for a quick publish of the Aries Ingress 2022 Horoscope set for Moscow, Russia (aka, Spring Equinox). With Putin placing war front and center, 'Aries Ingress' emphasizes the season's Martian qualities.

Astro-Notes are scribbled on the chart for the curious, and several 29th-degree placements of a critical-crisis and impulsive nature will be noted, plus, star of misfortune, Scheat, is active, conjunct the Sun, and Angular.

Vladimir Putin's first natal planet to rise is his Sun @13Lib55 closely followed by his sour Saturn (@17Lib27 - conjunct Herr Trump's natal Jupiter 17:27), then his Neptune-Mercury conjunction of fantasy and fallacy rises; meanwhile, Ingress 2022 Saturn conjunct Nemesis points toward Putin's natal North Node which suggests his lonely position, work that becomes steadily more difficult as time goes on (R. Ebertin), and possibly his 'unbeatable foe' determination to take power and expand Russian territory (like the Roman Empire - see the IC's Sabian Symbol - "The Pope Blessing the Faithful") via war and violence.

Horoscope: Aries Ingress 2022 March 20th 6:33:14 pm BAT Moscow, Russia; ASC 29Vir21; MC 29Gem07; chart and Midheaven ruler = Mercury with applying aspects listed, lower left corner with international communications in focus, and some form of financial expansion on the menu:

DC Horoscope: Spring Equinox 2022

Spring Equinox (Aries Ingress) Horoscopes Are 'Good For' the Entire Year

by Jude Cowell

Thursday November 11, 2021: In answer to a reader's request, this partial post displays the Spring Equinox 2022 Horoscope set for Washington DC (as representative of America) which perfects (Sun to 00Ari00:00 = the Aries Point of World Events) on March 20, 2022 at 11:33:20 am edt; as you see, a few chart factors are penned upon the image:

Horoscope of the NRA: Pan and the Trouble-Shooter

The Sun Scorpio-Moon Aquarius Blend of The Trouble-Shooter

by Jude Cowell

Friday November 5, 2021

No matter what hour an 1871 Horoscope of the NRA is set for, one stand-out factor is the 'death axis' pair, Mars and Saturn, their conjunction @7Cap04/46 conjunct the goatish pagan god Pan. Also conjoined upon that degree is the group's Venus-Chiron midpoint with the Venus-Chiron opposition denoting mentorship (R. Nolle). Maybe it's the NRA's association with large amounts of gun violence across "arsenal of democracy" America such as school shootings, street violence, murders of the unarmed, self-appointed (illegal) vigilantism, and other anti-societal activities such as NRA lobbyists buying off politicians to do the organization's bidding, but this disturbing cosmic picture makes sense to me via the potential that the NRA and the death cult attached to it are followers of paganism of the most primal and violent kind with roots in satanism. Also implicated: US militarism on steroids and its weaponry of aggression, invasion, and occupation of foreign lands, as directed by our 'death star' entity, the Pentagon (1942 horoscope shown). Of course, it was FDR who led the Freemasonic dedication ceremony for the construction of the Pentagon in a location that he himself chose.

Meanwhile, a cosmic curiosity relating to our weaponry topic is that the December 2016 New Moon @7Capricorn conjoined the Syzygy New Moon of FDR's Arsenal of Democracy speech of December 1940 a cosmic time link that joins US weaponry and its build-up for war with violence-promoter Trump and his thugs. Plus, the synchronicity links to the New Moon of December 2016, just prior to Trump's 'carnage in America' inaugural address of January 20, 2017. Well, carnage is certainly a promise he kept in more ways than one, isn't it? And '7Cap' is the NRA's Mars-Saturn Conjunction and therefore the location of the group's 'death axis' (R. Ebertin).

So! Below is a slightly different Horoscope of the NRA than shown on SO'W before for it's set for 1:33 pm LMT as suggested by expert astrologer Gary Lorentzen. And here is a link to the previously published NRA Horoscope set for the general time of noon (November 17, 1871 Albany, NY; note that Gary locates the chart for New York, New York) including astro-notes. As you see, Trump's natal planets are all over this chart and are highlighted in pink. And please be advised that previous notes on the NRA and today's remarks are my own and no one else's:

Its Splay shape of planets = the rugged individualism of the macho 'cowboy ethic' that many Americans so closely identify with.

Now a second NRA Horoscope of 1871 isn't posted today so that I will re-type my astro-notes all over again (follow the above link if you're curious) but there are a few factors worth emphasizing which may not have been mentioned in my previous post, or may now include additional info, such as:

2021 Saturn conjuncts 1871 Hades

Oops! As you've heard, the latest legal news about the NRA involves campaign finance trouble via such Republicans as Trump and Josh Hawley.

Simultaneously, transit Saturn (karma, loss, restriction, limitation, accountablity, obstruction, the law and lawmakers, the past, old men) @7AQ+ is hitting the NRA's Hades, a difficult asteroid indicating heavy emotional issues (such as running out of funds, lack of donations, loss of members, lawsuits) plus, decay, destruction, sorrow, grief, and - the constant go-to for the NRA and its political handmaidens of the GOP - regression. Meanwhile, President Biden's 'Build Back Better' Plan is built to fight against such regression and its ongoing efforts to force American society and laws back to the 1850s (slavery) and/or 1950s (pre-Civil-Rights - it's an Aryan thing, a past vision of white power and control, now threatening democracy in the US and across the globe). Yet their efforts are challenged by President Biden's progressive legislation which will greatly benefit the American people, even those of the Republican persuasion, and this resonates with the Solar Eclipse themes of: 'benefits' and 'good news' of the 5 South eclipse which will manifest on on December 4, 2021 @12Sag22 as Bernadette Brady details in her Predictive Astrology book #ad). In addition, 2021 Saturn conjuncts the NRA's Sun-Neptune midpoint indicating potentials for bereavements, bad blood, frustration, and/or emotional struggles and difficulties.

Along similar lines, note that the NRA's Pluto-Chiron midpoint in 1871, the pair of Plutocracy, exploitation, primal violence, racism and other -isms, opposes the group's CUPIDO (@26Lib27 conjunct the 8th cusp of Corporatism, Shared Resources, the Occult, and Death) with Cupido revealing the thuggish group's associations with Corporatism, 'The Family' (religious; mafia), The Syndicate (criminality; the mafia/the global Underworld Crime Syndicate; transnational banking) so a stark cosmic picture is reflected upon the NRA across the Taurus-Scorpio axi$ especially for those who speak astrologese (which I attempt to translate into English for any SO'W readers who might appreciate it!).

The Panic and Pandemic of Pan? Run For Your Lives

As you see, a major signal involving guns and violence, as already noted above, is the organization's Mars-Saturn Conjunction @7Capricorn+ ('the death axis' - R. Ebertin) which conjoins Pan (panic, pandemonium, pandemic, fear, anxiety). As you see, the Venus-Chiron pair at midpoint joins the 'party' @7Capricorn (sign of The Goat, a stand-in for the devil) and suggests mentorship - by pagan god Pan? This indicates to me group members being mentored via a pagan 'god' and the mentoring of others (but not necessarily intended for the group's rank and file members). However, we should add that with pipe-player Pan, sexuality is included.

Meanwhile, mention should be made of the NRA's Neptune-Pluto pair of occultism, and the Criminal Underworld (see notes on chart: Neptune-Pluto @5Tau17 in 2nd house of Values). For as you know, transit Uranus has recently hit this degree and now lurches between them and for the NRA this suggests potentials for 'impersonal attitudes about destructive or anti-societal activities; possibly aberrant behavior; disruption to gain recognition; making waves to get to shore' (N. Tyl; Munkasey; R. Ebertin). Additionally, transit Uranus will conjunct the NRA Pluto (@18Tau46 Rx) in early August 2022 and again in September 2022, prior to Midterms 2022, identifying a dangerous period when hidden fears may not be willingly confronted (and may be exploited and promoted to sway the Midterms, no doubt) and abrupt changes to the familiar are disturbing and must be navigated.

Side Note: the Neptune-North-Node sextile gives the group the ability to 'ride the waves' of public opinion, and a talent for using subtle evasion as a tactic.

Midpoint pictures that are Angular in the 1:33 pm chart:

Saturn-Pluto = ASC: 'silent power; working with those of power and influence'; Moon-Neptune = ASC: 'instability; delusions; seeing through others (psychism); scandals': Mercury-Mars = MC (the goal point): 'fighters ready for action; bravura; a champion salesperson'; Mercury-Saturn = MC: 'wrapped up in one's own ideas; philosophizing; mind over matter; winning through planning' (R. Ebertin; M. Munkasey; N. Tyl).

In closing, I'll add two factors not penned upon the chart:

1. The group's 4th house Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE"), in the 18 North Saros Series which perfected on June 18, 1871 @26Gem22 with themes of: 'high stress level; a taxing of strength; worry and obsession; illness, accidents, or physical concern' (B. Brady). The last occurrence of an 18 North eclipse was on September 13, 2015 @20Virgo (under President Obama but also the year Trump announced his escalator prez bid in June 2015 but he did so under the direct influence of the 17 South Spring Equinox 2015 Solar Eclipse conjunct the star of misfortune, Scheat). And misfortune for America is another promise he kept. 2. NRA's gold-worshiping Mida$ Rx @24Ari48 in the first house of this horocope conjunct NRA Neptune Rx @21Ari48 which to me suggests veiled or hidden wealth and the fraud, scams, theft, and deception it takes to collect it.

Zealotry and the Civil War's Progressed Full Moon

In America Neptunian Rebels Are Rising Again

by Jude Cowell

April 9, 2021: With today being the 156th anniversary of General Robert E. Lee's Surrender at Appomattox Court House, here's a view of the Civil War Horoscope (lower left), plus the war's Secondary Progressed Full Moon ('SP') which perfected on December 14, 2020 @26Pis05. Some amazing synchronicities were, or are, in effect, what I tend to call 'cosmic time links' involving 1861 Neptune in Pisces (with deceptive, deluded Neptune progressed in December 2020 to the very public Aries Point), and the Electoral College Vote count on that very day. As you see, at the start of the war (April 12, 1861 4:30 am LMT) Neptune was rising along with Scheat, star of misfortune and murder, plus, a midpoint picture between Mercury-Neptune = ASC reveals potentials for 'overreaction to others' and exploitation' (Tyl). A veil of Neptunian deception and misconception was cast over the proceedings, and emotions were played upon in 1861, a description of many of our 2021 conditions as well.

Now outside the foundational 4th house of the upper right horoscope (SP Full Moon @26Pis05) I've notated the December 14, 2020 Solar Eclipse @23Sag08 in the difficult 4 South Saros Series - the influences in which the world continues to stew (until late May or early June 2021, when the next Solar Eclipse in Gemini begins to influence societal conditions and events, and our dreams become prophetic). Thing is, the December 14, 2020 Eclipse is a time link for current seditionist activities for it manifested on the very day of the Electoral College Vote, the count for which violent insurrectionists on January 6th temporarily interrupted the work of the US Congress as it fulfilled its constitutional duty of certifying the vote count for President Joe Biden - aka, the former guy's infamous, deceitful "stop the steal" ploy which led to violence and death. And as you know, the grifter's big lie about Election 2020's outcome is the basis for the false narratives and shady laws being perpetrated in state legislatures such as in my home state of Georgia where 'white supremacy' somehow retains a base of radical reactionaries who are often signified in horoscopes by Utopian zealot and radical, disruptive politician, Uranus.

Uranus and Neptune

Now looking ahead, one interesting, or perhaps predictive, feature is that the Civil War will experience a three-fer Neptune Return/s on March 28, 2025, October 24, 2025, and January 24, 2026 - all 're-conjunct' 1861 Scheat, and as you see, at a critical 29th degree of shady Pisces (see the blue box on the left). Another thing is transit Uranus, America's planet of rebellion, conflict, and potential for violence, now traveling through Venus-ruled Taurus ('the bull'), has already caused trouble including from its Mars-Uranus Conjunction (6Tau44) on Inauguration Day 2021. Fortunately, the ceremony and Oaths of Office were uninterrupted by sore losers - because the capital city was prepared and snugly fenced in.

So lower left beside the 1861 chart, you see listed a midpoint picture with transit Uranus at apex which in part describes recent, current, and probably future events, as you may agree: fanaticism and the urge to fight. Add in the energies of SP Mars conjunct SP Sun-Jupiter and we have a portion of the zealotry, aggression, and warrior spirit (Mars) that helps fuel the miguided, anti-societal efforts and attacks of seditionist rebels as they proudly march under authoritarian symbols of neo-nazism.

And my suspicion is that these rowdy miscreants are being 'inspired' to act on behalf of the former guy by the reigning crop of crooks and swindlers and can be seen in the SP midpoint picture: Sun-Mercury opposite - you guessed it - SP Neptune Rx @00Ari20, conjunct the SP 8th cusp.

Feb 17, 2021

Eclipses, Klans, Prez Bids, Despots, and Empires

February 17, 2021: In my prevous post on the 17 South Summer Solstice Eclipse of 2015, the Prenatal Eclipse ('PE') of Trump's bid for the presidency, you can view the eclipse horoscope. Below, you can see it again along with one of its 17 South 'siblings' which perfected on December 22, 1870 @00Cap30, conjunct one of four Cardinal World Points of Manifestation, and the PE of the passsage of the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 on April 20th, now being considered for use against Trump and his comrades.

17 South themes are penned on the chart, right side, and a list of individuals, entities, and events that also were born or begun within the 17 South Saros Series is on the left. Considering that the 'hidden' topic of this post is Trump and his Klannish (tribal) sentiments and activities (ex: Trump Mob Attack of January 6, 2021), you'll note that 17 South 'spawned' two related entities - Herr Hitler and the German Empire:

Besides being at a 29th critical or crisis degree (of Pisces, so conjunct the Aries Point), a significant factor that lowered the 'good news' potentials of the 2015 Solar Eclipse into the abyss of despair and harm is its conjunction with fixed star Scheat, a star known for its nasty potentials of: 'extreme misfortune, suicide, murder, drowning, a sentence of death, imprisonment, suffering', and "malevolence of sublime scope" (A. Louis, Horary Plain and Simple) #ad.

And though you may disagree, dear reader, to me Scheat's potentials sound a lot like Trump's first inaugural address where he threatened us with "American carnage."

Inauguration 2025 Horoscope: Cowboys and Tyranny

"Anarchists Form a Committee to Overthrow the Tyranny of Committees" (The Harveys).

December 8, 2020: Here you see the DC Horoscope of Inauguration 2025 published with a sprinkling of hope that there may actually be one. Please enlarge the image to read my study notes if you wish; brief chart details are added below:

Horoscope: January 20, 2025 12:00 pm est Capitol Building Washington DC; Hour of Venus (@17Pis38 conjunct Saturn in 11th house of Groups and Associations: discontent?); Final Dispositor Neptune in Pisces conjunct 12th cusp; North Node @29Pis08 conjunct star of misfortune, Scheat, in 12th house of Karma; 12th house Chiron conjunct determined Sisyphus opposes the 6th house Moon @18Lib31 (conjunct Trump's natal Jupiter). Sun in the public 10th house (of course) with powerful manipulator Pluto @1AQ41 suggesting a Pluto-to-Sun transit has occurred which can motivate those in power to make a new start with ego as the primary motivation. Obviously, the US Pluto Return has completed previously (3x in 2022) and some evidence of authoritarianism is a potential with its handmaiden tyranny doing its part when necessary. For now I'll reserve my thoughts on the significance of only the Sun (POTUS) and Pluto (hidden manipulator) alone together in the political 10th house of this chart.

And since an Oath of Office is involved, check out 9th house Mercury @18Cap15, the position of the 'NWO' planets Uranus and Neptune when they met three times in 1993. Potentials are penned on the chart. Also note that Mercury opposes testy Mars Rx (at IC) @24Can23 conjunct the Syzygy Moon, the previous Full Moon (@23Can59, January 13, 2025), plus, Mars by transit conjuncts US natal Mercury in the Siby chart suggesting a fast pace of life and lots of verbal combat. (Hopefully anarchist Mars doesn't represent Mars-rising Trump still hanging around!) And you know the Sabian Symbol for '25 Cancer': "A Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power," plus, US natal Pluto sits atop the Midheaven, aka, the Goal Point.

So we have issues of power, surveillance ('AI' - see Mercury), hidden control, and an iffy National Treasury with banker-general-politician-reverend-actor-broadcaster planet Jupiter Rx conjunct 2nd cusp (12:39) along with asteroid Midas @12:39. As you see, Jupiter here rules the corporate 8th house of debt, credit, and Shared Resources, plus 12th house via its Pisces cusp. Evaluating Venus, another money planet, is in shady Pisces, ruled by Jupiter, co-ruled by nebulous Neptune, so speculation, grand schemes, and currency issues are, as usual, involved. Additionally, this inauguration occurs during a Jupiter-Saturn square denoting a period of moral and/or ethical conflicts prominent within the public discourse.

Now the Solar Eclipse themes running in the backround of society are difficult issues of loss, separation, and possible injury (penned on the chart, 6th house, between South Node and the Moon, with the Libra/Aries polarity karmically intercepted across the 6-12).

Update August 4, 2021: I neglected to add to this post that "Cowboys" is a reference to the Splay shape of the planets in the eclipse horoscope, above, and its (rugged) individualism, within which should be included the 'up-by-boot-straps' self-reliance of America's 'cowboy ethic' that Reagan promoted and actor John Wayne demonstrated on film along with the other 'cowboy' movie and tv stars promoting superficial symbols of the concept. # UPDATE June 2, 2022: it has been pointed out that the above Inauguration Horoscope shows not a Splay shape (as my Solar Fire v9 software says) but a more concentrated BUCKET shape with the 6th house Moon as Handle, the point of focus; disturbingly, the Moon @18Libra conjuncts the natal Jupiter of Herr Tr*mp which reflects what could be an anti-democracy event - happy for him, his duped voters, and corporate enablers, tragic for the future of a free America.

Meanwhile, the cosmic weather on January 20, 2025 may be partially described by the double Air (mental) combination of Sun AQ-Moon Libra, a sociable and idealistic blend of energies. Tolerance and dignity are suggested along with social awareness yet to be effective, leadership must get involved with the practical considerations of others - of The People. If effectiveness is what is wanted, that is. Concerns will include issues of individualism and independent thought which are supported by the Splay shape of planets indicating those who promote the rugged 'cowboy ethic'. This blend is shared natally by Burt Reynolds, Edouard Manet, and author Boris Pasternak who helpfully asserted,

"As for the men in power, they are so anxious to establish the myth of infallibility that they do their utmost to ignore the truth."

You know - similar to The Pope, one of Pluto's many astrological identities.

Uranus-Pluto 1966 with Bucket Handle Saturn in Pisces

Troubles by the Bucket: 1966, 2015, and 2020

by Jude Cowell

During the presidency of Lyndon Baines Johnson ('LBJ') came the three Great Conjunctions of Uranus and Pluto in mid-Virgo: 1. October 9, 1965 @17Vir09; 2. April 4, 1966 @16Vir28; and 3. June 30, 1966 @16Vir06. Below is the June 30, 1966 horoscope set for Washington DC with many messy study notes penned on for the daring to read if they so wish:

1966 vs 2020: Upheavals vs Upheavals

There are multiple places in this chart where Trump figures into the equation, one of which is karmic Saturn @29Pis35 (10th house) conjunct Scheat, star of misfortune (suicide, murder), which was activated by the Summer Solstice 2015 Eclipse and in part resulted in Trump's 'escalator ride' to deliver his 2015 'Prez Bid' announcement the morning of a Gemini New Moon. Yes, his disturbing announcement occurred under the influence of the 17 South Saros Series which imprints upon his 'prez bid' and upon what turned out to be his 'presidency' involving the 17 South themes of 'sudden success/good news concerning groups or relationships'. We may wish to note that 17 South can have positive or negative effects and is the Prenatal Eclipse series ('PE') of notables such as Adolf Hitler, Ayn Rand, Rachel Carson, Princess Diana (her birth and tragic death!), Newt Gingrich, and Barack Obama.

Eclipses: Uranian Wild Cards and Cosmic Blinks from Above

However! 17 South is not the PE of this 1966 Uranus-Pluto Conjunction, 4 North is! Because prior to the June 30th conjunction, a 4 North Eclipse manifested on May 20, 1966 @28Tau55 (spotlighted in red, 11th house near the NN-Algol conjunction) among the stars of the Pleiades constellation. And considering America's current conditions of upheaval, protests, revolt, violence, riots that bring changes in government, and civil rights demonstrations, it seems significant to me that the Uranus-Pluto Conjunctions of the mid-1960s are now triggered or activated via opposition from the transiting midpoint of Uranus-and-Pluto in mid-Pisces (@16Pis51 as I type).

Other cosmic factors are involved, of course, such as the harsh conjunction of karmic Saturn and Pluto on January 12, 2020 which imprinted the duo's compressed, toilsome energies upon the year 2020. As a planetary pair, Saturn-Pluto can also represent 'deeply researching scientists, violent people, reactionaries, and mass murderers' (Ebertin) - all of which sounds to me like events and people of 2020 so far including the pandemic, rioting in the streets, violent acts and the threat of them, political conflicts, and the cruelty of a leadership that cares nothing for its people.

Yet another chart factor stands out and cosmically links events and conditions of 1966 with 2020: currently we're again influenced by a 4 North Solar Eclipse which recently perfected at Summer Solstice 2020 @00Can21, a Cardinal World Point of Manifestation. And as you know, History tends to rhyme so it's no wonder that we are dealing once again with 4 North themes of 'restraint, restriction, separation, illusions' and more. Note that 4 North solar eclipses occurred in the years 1912, 1930, 1948, (1966), 1984, and 2002 and relate to restrictive or separative events and/or illusions operable during those years. See the center of the horoscope for a few events of 1966. You may also wish to note the Sabian Symbol of the rising Jupiter ('12 Cancer' = "A Chinese Woman Nursing a Baby With a Message") and the fact that opposing expansive Jupiter is health asteroid Aesculapia. Plus, 2020's Capricorn stellium of planets cluster around 1966's Saturn-Neptune midpoint @24Cap37 which is the "illness axis" (Ebertin) - and the 8th cusp of this chart with US natal Pluto upon it. Saturn-Neptune = Pluto: a serious illness (Ebertin).

Donald Trump June 14, 1946 10:54 am edt Queens (or Jamaica) New York; Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius = "The Pied Piper" (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey).

Other cosmic links are more obvious than the eclipse connection: Trump's natal Mercury (8Can51--the mouthpiece) rises in this Uranus-Pluto 1966 chart along with the Sun (8Can09) and fixed star Alhena (to have a mission), plus, 1966's North Node of future direction (24Tau43 in 11th house) points toward the nasty star of fury and destruction, Algol, which twinkles upon Trump's natal Midheaven ('MC': his Goal). Algol always implicates the malevolent stare of vicious Medusa. (With Trump I tend to think of this as the raptor's stare! Tragically, We the People are in the raptor's direct line of sight with his aggressive, vengeful Mars opposing US natal Moon.)

Now there are many more chart factors worth noting (leave your on-topic comments if you wish!) but let's close with only a bigly one:

Now you know that grim reaper Saturn is aka, the old man or senex, right? Dr. Liz Greene calls him 'the old devil' and I would never disagree with that assessment. Saturn represents authority and authority figures, accountability, responsibility, maturity, seniority, old age, the past, concentration, hard work, the taskmaster, lesson-bringer, solidity, consolidation, soberness, modesty, shyness, flaws, conservation, preservation, studiousness, reserve, economy, loss, learning from experience, borders, walls, bones, skeletons, teeth, cells, systems and structures, soil, tectonic plates, the Earth, inertia - the list goes on, as you know. In the chart above, earthy Saturn is placed in watery Pisces ('a struggle with opponents') and acts as the handle of a Bucket pattern. This handle is similar to the lead planet of a Locomotive shape (ruthlessly determined toward success; a high-powered executive) of planets. Plus, Bucket handle Saturn here is at a critical-crisis 29th degree, straining toward the Aries Point.

Now as you know, a Bucket is a Bowl with a handle, hemispheric emphasis is important, and the handle planet acts as "an important direction of interest" but doesn't change the fact that a Bowl denotes a dedicated cause or mission. With a handle planet, it's more a question of "adapting allegiances to lines along which efforts count for the most" (Jones). This Saturn represents either the "instructor or inspirer of others" or the zealous "agitator and malcontent". So - what's in it for him? Well, I'll let you decide who might be fulfilling the role of 1966 Saturn in 2020, if anyone, and with the violent energies of Uranus-Pluto stirred up and expressing online and in the streets.

Yes once again, as in 1966 during the Vietnam War, deferral-lovin' Trump is "a soldier derelict in his duty" as he mishandles the Covid-19 catastrophe, takes no responsibility, and hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer and die. And instead of calming riots in the streets of America, he promotes them! To me it seems as if a lot of "misjudging strength or the situation" is going on in Washington DC (another 4 North influence) under figurehead Trump.

Meanwhile, we should probably add that the Moon-Venus opposition across the 6/12 victim-savior axis forms the rim of the Bowl (with Moon conjunct war-like Antares!) which handle Saturn, the authority figure, has hold of. Besides the suggestion of maladjusted relationships within this opposition, Moon-Venus in Politics and Business suggests potentials for "manufacturing and agricultural productivity and how it affects the overall wealth and well-being of the people" and "how a country preserves the heritage, customs, lifestyle, and culture of native people" and "esteem for minority groups" (Munkasey). Under the Trump regime, I'd have to say, lack of esteem for minorities, anti-preservation attitudes for cultural sites and customs, and little if any sense of well-being for everyone.

Because after all, authoritative Saturn rules government, law, business, and tradition, but with Trump's natal Saturn in the watery, tribal, nationalistic, emotional sign of Cancer, his tendencies toward discontent, fantasy when realism is called for, and egotistical hypersensitivity constantly interfere with the possibility that he is able to exhibit any real leadership so that his complete lack of respect for rules, laws, and traditions makes him merely a corrupt scofflaw president if he's any kind of president at all.

Troubles by the bucket? Yeah, we've got 'em.
