2017's Great American Eclipse and DC's favorite sign Virgo -- Virgo as Isis

Astro-Notes Concerning Eclipses, America, and Switzerland

by Jude Cowell

This is a heads-up for those who may be interested in ancient star lore of Virgo the Virgin, Spica (celestial symbol of the Washington Monument), Scotland's Rosslyn Chapel and its Masonic Legacy, Knights Templar (who are said to have created Switzerland expressly for their banking purposes), and other esoteric topics: there is an astoundingly informative article by astrologer Ed Kohout that you may wish to check out.

But no one has to go all the way to Scotland to be in 'Rosslyn' since there's a Rosslyn, Virginia just across the Potomac from DC. Is it ironic that the 'Deepthroat' meetings that informed journalists Woodward and Bernstein about the Watergate break-in were held in a parking garage column '32', a Masonic number?

As for Campaign 2016, have you noticed how the Republican burglary of Democratic headquarters which resulted in the Watergate scandal resembles the current hacking (theft) of DNC emails? By which I imply: have Republicans enabled hackers in order to interfere with Hillary's chances for a second White House occupancy? Just wondering since America's political class is stuffed full of crooks on both sides determined to win at any cost. No dirty trick is too low for these varmints!

Also see Astro-Notes: Solar Eclipses 2015--2017.

Plus, a Coming Cosmic Event is The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @29Leo (conjunct Mr. Trump's natal Mars rising and Ascendant--with royal star Regulus -- will his "Make America Great Again" be the tragic eclipse of our nation?)

The August 2017 eclipse falls into the 1 North Saros Series and is the first repetition of the August 11, 1999 King of Alarm Eclipse (horoscope shown) associated with the Nostradamus prophecies. Substitute the word 'Terror' for 'Alarm' and we have the major theme of the New Millennium as finagled by crooked politicians and their banker enablers intent on global domination.

Remember the Bush-Cheney color alerts meant to ramp up our fear in their "war on terror"? The thuggish alerts were so ridiculed ('puce' and 'magenta' were favorites of mine) that Washington discontinued them along with 'sheets of plastic and duct tape' for our doors and windows. How the ruling class must have laughed over that silly advice which, as usual, made monkeys out of decent people and kept the ill-gained reins of control in the claws of the ruling elite.

The First 2017 Solar Eclipse Hits Switzerland's Natal Pisces Moon

A Swiss Note: the "lucky break" 19 South February 26, 2017 Solar Eclipse hits the 8 Pisces Moon in the natal 'Constitution' horoscope of Switzerland (Campion) set for September 12, 1848 11:12 LT Bern (Moon conjoins natal IC 7Pis54). This horoscope also shows that Switzerland is in process of a Uranus Return to natal degree of 21Ari26 Rx--conjunct the bankers' Pluto (27Ari34 Rx--both planets in natal 5th house and so the Uranus-Pluto conjunction is activated. Transit Uranus to natal Pluto denotes a time of abrupt changes to familiar patterns and social traditions, and a potential for disturbing situations and hidden fears which are difficult to confront for the people (Moon).

Also note that astrodatabank gives this RR:AA data for Switzerland: February 8, 1845 9:26 am GMT Bern with 3Taurus26 rising. Actually, when it comes to Knights Templar bankers setting up the place, I prefer Switzerland's natal chart of August 1, 1291 11:25:24 GMT Altdorf (Campion) with 4Sco50 rising and lots of Leo planets at Midheaven (ex: Sun-Jupiter = MC: great good fortune--Tyl).

Biden with Stewart, Spica @ Rosslyn Chapel, US natal Mercury Rx

As you know, VP Joe Biden was interesting on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

The Huff Po article details some of the VP's remarks and provides videos of his performance with Jon.

One thing I do whole-heartedly agree with the VP about concerning the depressing recession that crashed under Bush-Cheney and had its baton passed to Barack Obama on Jan 20, 2009, is that it is "fascinating" that people who got us into the financial stew are the ones bossing and throwing their weight around over what should be done.

It's fascinating, yes, but not as much for the reasons VP Biden implies, or suggests that I believe.

If time doesn't fleet totally away I hope eventually to study more closely the chart for the beginning of the US natal *Mercury/Pluto cycle which has the persuasive pair opposing one another in the US birth chart, with Mercury retrograde @ '25Cancer'...quoting Marc Edmund Jones:

"A Dark Shadow or Mantle Thrown Suddenly Over the Right Shoulder"...DESTINY.

positive expression: some dramatic manifestation of genius vital to the general welfare of man;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: a tendency to unwarranted presumption if not outright megalomania. (The Sabian Symbols in Astrology.)

Dane Rudhyar's '25 Can': "A Will-full Man Is Overshadowed by a Descent of Superior Power." Keynote: The response of spiritual forces to the integration of personality through positive will-full endeavors.'

(Yet one's man's will can cause another man's imprisonment. And it sounds like someone more powerful is over President Obama to me, willful though he may be. And it could be The Man Upstairs in a political and financial sense. jc.)

Rudhyar goes on to mention that 'the "mantle of power," the grace (baraka in Sufi philosophy) or the Providential assistance which can make him a true leader in his culture.

We witness a more transcendent expression of "success." It is not merely external success (as it is given by society to its prima donnas), but a spiritual response, a sign of inner strength and uncommon ENDOWMENT. (An Astrological Mandala.)

Now it's been a while since I quoted a degree from Adriano Carelli but I shall in part for '25Can' since it describes an intrinsic ingredient within America's psyche and her founding in 1776. So if America were a coconut pie, Mercury would be the_____well, you get the picture.

Not all his degree interpretations have word pictures but in The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac, Carelli gives '25Can' as "A Wild Horse" and says it relates to a "spirited being, full of noble purposes and setting his sights high, cherishing freedom above all earthly things..." He goes on to say that other stars may help him "make his mark in history" but under less favorable influence "his daring may become a reckless love of adventure, his zest for work wild and fickle fanaticism, his lofty aspirations selfish ambitions.

Travel will play a role in his life," (perhaps a pioneer), and "the secret of his success is his unshakable self-confidence supported by a fiery will."

Okay, there's the word will again - for a man or our nation. Reminds me of cults that use the 'what thou wilt' slogan to justify doing whatever they think to do - Crowley's crowd, is it? It's all quite Sun/Mars/Pluto - 'forcefully taking power' etc. And US n Sun is in Cancer, a most self-protective sign, always scuttling sideways like a crab to avoid what we don't want to confront. But give us an idea for an illegal invasion to secure oil and other resources and we're sitting on ready.

Now you may have heard that America has been accused lately of 'losing confidence' and one could suppose that a Secondary Mars turning Rx is one of the descriptors of such a change (on an inner level where self-confidence must exist), if indeed it has occurred. To me, the Fort Hood shootings seem designed for undermining our soldiers' and the public's sense of being safe on US soil inside a military facility...a loss of confidence in one's safety.

What I don't know for certain is whether the heinous crime was engineered under cover and is actually a false flag op to help make police state implementation seem more acceptable to the general populace - on US soil. It's the old political ploy 'trading security for freedoms' maze we're bedeviled with once again because politicians know we will follow them like sheep when under threat. And threats don't have to come from where we're told they come from, just manipulated against us.

Yes, the US natal Mercury, our Mercury/Pluto opposition, and Mercury's degree symbolisms (and Pluto's) are fascinating on more levels than this, but my pecking finger is just about all tucked out except for a...

Heads-Up: if you're interested in articles about Rosslyn Chapel and its Freemsonic Legacy, check out expert astrologer Ed Kohout on the subject in a 3-part article that includes the laying of the foundation stone of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, among other fascinating and ancient things, plus a cast that includes Fixed Star Spica with Mars conjoined.

And one more note from my local evening news: Fulton County Courthouse of Atlanta is on the verge of shutting its doors, one more example of the 'the money's gone and tax revenues are down' script. Rep. John Lewis has been contacted in Washington to ask for financial aid to keep justice 'unfrozen' in Atlanta. Even divorces will be unavailable if the courthouse closes, and I know many other towns and cities are in similar straits.

Yet the same people involved in causing the financial swamp and allowing increasing job losses in the US are still on duty! Are we-the-people wacko or what? Do you think so few of us demanding accountability from our fraudsters, heisters, and crime syndicate types indicates something of a loss of confidence for the American people?


*America's Mercury/Pluto cycle begins with their conjunction of Jan 18, 1776 @ 26Cap32, where transiting midpoints Neptune/Pluto and Pluto/Chiron hang out circa 2009 with intermittent tete-a-tetes with tr Jupiter/Pluto; and of course, the degree is conjunct US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx; US Pluto has progressed to a 29th degree of Capricorn, a critical point in America's power developments. jc

Pluto to Lockerbie Bombing chart Aug 20, 2009

Here's a Wiki link to details of the sad fate of Pan Am Flight 103, aka the Lockerbie Bombing of Dec 21, 1988 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

As you've heard, a man serving time for the crime suffers from terminal cancer and has been released by the Scottish government, and the US government is sounding snake-mean as it calls for 'house arrest' as if the ill fellow needs to be kept in one place with his dire condition! (But perhaps it's only a little of the political theater I'm always grousing about.)

Here's a 'time capsule' news story from Jan 31, 2001 as CNN proclaimed Libyan guilty of Lockerbie Bombing. The guilty verdict took 11 years to announce.

Now wondering what transits, if any, to the chart for Dec 21, 1988, 19:02:46 GMT, were now in play, I found that tr Pluto 00Cap47 Rx this very day is conjunct 1988's Sun and Uranus which gives three midpoint pictures, with all three planets conjunct a World Point of the Cardinal axis (00Cap) - on Dec 21, 1988 Pluto was at '15Sco':

Sun/Uranus = tr Pluto: a new individual reality; a demand for new perspectives; a radical reformer; twists of fate; tragic experiences; great physical suffering; imprisonment.

Sun/Pluto = Uranus: carrying out fanatic reforms without regards for oneself; arrest; sudden change; rebellion; reform.

Uran/Pluto = Sun: revolution' the urge for independence and freedom; nervous over excitement; a breakdown. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

And Pluto to Sun? Past influences the present. Pluto to Uranus? Issues of freedom and independence with governmental involvement.

Wish I had more time to peek further into the matter, but it's time to motor into the city! Later...

Today in 1660: King Charles II restored

FACT OF THE DAY from The Scotsman:

King Charles II is restored to the English throne today in 1660. He had previously been crowned King of Scotland on 1 January 1651 and had attempted to reunite the kingdoms by attacking Cromwellian forces in England. This led to a resounding defeat at the Battle of Worcester where, according to legend, he hid in the 'Royal Oak' until the coast was clear. Upon restoration, Charles acknowledged his thanks to his Scottish soldiers by making The Royal Scots the first regular regiment of the modern British Army.

To read more about Scotland's past visit while pondering Great Britain's current separation anxieties as history repeats.

Looking at the natal chart of Charles II (June 8, 1630 NS) we see that his resoration to the throne occurred at his Saturn Return, age 30.

After his father, Charles I's beheading (Jan 30, 1649), Charles II spent nine years in exile and when the English people had had their craw full of Cromwell's "protectorate" (he died in 1658) they invited Charlie back to the throne.

(Apparently the political tradition of naming things the opposite of what they are or do is as olde as yon hills...the olde 'lipsticke on a pig' ploy.)

Charles II's rule is considered the most licentious of the British monarchy yet he presided over major events as well: two wars with the Dutch, the Plague, the Great Fire of London, and the passage of the Habeas Corpus Act, among others. A busy yet naughty boy who produced no legitimate heirs.

Charles died of Bright's disease in 1685, age 54, a hedonist monarch whose n Sun's symbol in Adriano Carelli's The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac applies quite well:

"9Gem": "An enthroned queen holding in one hand the Earth's gold surmounted by the cross; in the other, her scepter"...fond of riddles and chess, and a ruler born.
