A Saturnian Senator Sanders Schools Donald Trump

Trump's Proposed Deportation of The Masses

February 14, 2018: On the floor of the US Senate watch Senator Bernie Sanders speak on the subjects of DACA and immigration. Perhaps the senator represents not just his constituents but also astrological Saturn (the senex/the old man, the authority with more seniority) as he provides the amateurish yet venal Mr. Trump with a few lessons in decency. Hopefully this can help stop Trump's daft deportation plan that is certain to carry even more than a high emotional price tag since it would require massive amounts of funding to pay for the jailing and deporting of hundreds of thousands of people...'the masses'.

Who will be targeted next? Will Americans stir from their apathy before it's too late?

After all, transit Saturn is strong in its own sign of serious Capricorn and is in process of bringing karmic Saturnian limitations to Mr. Trump's very problematic Mercury-Neptune square spun with fantasies, misconceptions, falsehoods, sneakiness, faulty judgment, and deceptive propaganda ('fake' Neptune/'news' Mercury). Check out a list of the exact dates through 2018 that transit Saturn, planet of truth, realism, authenticity, and facts, rains on Donald Trump's illusory parade. And yes his idea of a military parade through the streets of Washington DC is yet another daft, misguided, fantastical, overreaching notion whereby in his mind, he reaps the benefits and accolades while other people always pick up the tab.

In addition to Senator Sanders, if anything can work out well in America anymore, Special Counsel Robert Mueller heading the investigation into Trump's dealings with Russia and other matters will act toward Mr. Trump as a critical, sobering Saturnian figure who holds him to account for any misdeeds, betrayals, or crimes he may have perpetrated--in spite of Trump's natal Saturn in self-protective Cancer and his Neptune-infected natal Mercury, also in the sign of Cancer the Crab which always scuttles sideways in order to avoid dealing directly and having to pay the price--behavior that suits trickster Mercury, the juggler and thespian, just fine.

What Does It Look Like When A Congressman Stands Up To #Trump? - clip

As Campaign 2016's twists and turns continue, Hillary Clinton says she won't debate Senator Bernie Sanders but Donald Trump says he will. Meanwhile, Senator Elizabeth Warren is on Trump's case.

This is a good one!

Be sure to visit Thom Hartmann when you can.

And in case you missed it, check out a related February 2016 segment from The Young Turks: Elizabeth Warren Defends Bernie Sanders regarding big banks, what they 'got away with', and the "danger" (says Lloyd Blankfein) of criticizing them or expecting them to make amends for their fraudulent activities.

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

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

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

Theodore Roosevelt, April 19, 1906

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

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

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

Is This the Natal Horoscope of Senator Bernie Sanders?

Many thanks to my FB friend Sara Jayara for cluing me in to the fact that there is a possible known birth hour for Senator Bernie Sanders based on a glimpse of a natal chart done for him years ago by a girlfriend.

If fixed Scorpio is indeed rising, his rigidity of purpose concerning Scorpionic issues (corporations, big business, money including hidden funds, taxes, surveillance, etc) through the years makes sense though of course many other factors must be considered. In Astrology, rectification of a chart and time is quite a laborious task and one must know life events of the native and their timing in order to make a success of it. Since my study and blogging schedule was shortened by circumstances in 2012, rectification time is what I do not have so I'm posting my penned-upon version of said chart (September 8, 1941 12:27 pm EDT Brooklyn, NY King's County) for your consideration and for my future reference.

Please enlarge the image to view my chicken-scratch notes which hopefully can be read and perhaps we can get together later for a fuller discussion now that his natal planets can be placed in their proper houses (departments of life)--assuming that 12:27 pm is Senator Sanders' correct time of birth; a few astro-notes follow:

Of Midpoints and Other Considerations

As you know, there are many reasons why the portrait of a personality (aka, a natal horoscope or birth chart) becomes much clearer when a correct birth time is known. Progressions, Return charts, transits, and much more information can be determined accurately (which is why some politicians have sense enough to keep their correct birth data secret--you know, like Hillary does) though Solar Charts (sunrise) and Sun-at-Noon charts are helpful when necessary. One important distinction in a presidential candidate's natal chart is any links to the US natal Moon (18-28 AQ depending on which US natal chart you prefer for July 4, 1776.)

So using the chart above, I can say that besides having no planets in that degree range of Aquarius providing a direct link to the American people, Senator Sanders has no midpoints in that range of Aquarius either--only two at earlier degrees: Moon-ASC @7AQ19 (emotional link) and Mars-ASC 9AQ27 (a fighter). Perhaps this is inconsequential but 6/7AQ is America's natal South Node degree, a Saturnian point of separation, inherited talent, and unconscious behavior (with perhaps some neurosis thrown in.)

In Leo is his Pluto-Chiron conjunction of Plutocracy, oppression, and Socialism (and other -isms in royal Leo which may help explain the Scorpio-related emphasis of his political career. Ideology, philosophy, and higher education are the areas where his Pluto-Chiron energies most easily express (natal 9th house.) Plus, you see his full 10th house of Career and Public Standing expressed on Capitol Hill in the US Senate, not the usual job for very many of us.

Opposite our Moon in the 18-28 Leo range, the senator has quite a few important midpoints beginning at 21Leo and ending with 29Leo (conjunct royal star Regulus, so prominent in the natal chart of Donald Trump).

They are: Venus-Jupiter, Pluto-MC, Sun-Pluto, Saturn-ASC, Sun-Chiron, Uranus-ASC, and Pluto-NN--and all may be applied on various levels to Politics. Yet having links via opposition to the US Moon isn't as powerful an indicator in an election (most US presidents have had such a link--Barack Obama's comes through his Leo placements) as conjunctions in Aquarius would be but for those voters who prefer Bernie Sanders for president, Leo placements may become significant on November 8, 2016 along with such connections as voting North Node @10Virgo, a Jupiterian point of union and public contact, conjunct his natal Midheaven (The Goal and Aspiration Point.) Natal Sun, NN, Neptune, and Mercury @2Lib41 (conjunct US natal MC 00Libra) are wonderful placements for a senator and if his 10th house Neptune doesn't interfere come Election Day 2016, it will be because the planet of compassion supplies a spiritual link that inspires and uplifts the American people and allows the senator wide popularity with the masses.


Of course it isn't as if I believe the 2016 Election vote count will be honest! Personally I go by the "it's not the votes that count, it's who counts the votes" philosophy in American Politics. Plus, it will take a massive turn-out of Democratic voters to override the election fraud, gerrymandering antics, and other dirty tricks certain operatives have planned for Election Day for a Democrat to win the White House even though a landslide turn-out of voters may be just what helps crash our antiquated voting machines into oblivion as the old order of 1776 comes to a screeching and anarchist-engineered halt. Hopefully not.

Orwell rolls in his grave (video part 2) - featuring Bernie Sanders

Over the last 8 years news outlets have only become more corporatized since 2007. If you've never watched 'Orwell Rolls in His Grave' here's part 2 which obviously I am posting here primarily because 2016 presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders is one of the featured speakers:

There are several parts in 'Orwell Rolls in His Grave' so here's a link to part 1 in case you want it.

The Problem with "Good Guys with Guns" interview - video (w US Mars Rx)

David Pakman conducts an informative interview with Ladd Everitt regarding gun violence, gun safety regulation, and the NRA:


US Mars: Guns Against The People: From Gemini Direct (1776) to Retrograde (2006 - 2086)

As you know, America's progressed (SP) Mars symbolically turned retrograde during Summer 2006 and is visiting its thwarted, frustrated energies upon home soil while being only partially successful in the wider world. Our SP Mars continues to represent police state violence against the public, mass protests on various issues, gun and other violence against the innocent including children, veterans' health problems and lack of timely care, distorted actions and motivations at home and abroad, and many other events and conditions we both could name.

Mars the Warrior Planet

During the Bush administration I blogged here and possibly elsewhere that US Mars turning Rx in Summer 2006 symbolized on one level Washington's misadventures and misguided interventions in the Middle East and US troop re-deployments and over extensions--that Bush had 'broken' the US military as shown by our Rx Mars, planet of soldiers, troops, and war. This was simplistic of course since W. Bush (and Jeb who signed on for the Iraq War even before his brother did) was in league with certain shadowy elements who control the US government and determine who is nominated and subsequently selected to play the role of 'US president' and who decide our war waging abominations. President Obama would not be president if he were not in league with 'higher forces' as well. You may naturally disagree but there it is, and it is the reason why Senator Bernie Sanders will never be president though you may have read or heard lately that it's because he is Jewish. In spite of that, unless the senator falls in with the supranational-global-conquest narrative, he will not be the Democratic Party nominee--though thankfully his #FeeltheBern platform places many of our most dire issues into the public discourse and under Hillary Clinton's hawkish nose.

As for the above interview (very informative I might add), we find our Mars Rx being discussed whether David or his guest, Ladd Everitt, know it or not. Astrologers know it for the ancient art of Astrology is an excellent tool and language with which to understand events, conditions, and people on a deeper level. And of course Astrology has the advantage of adding the element of time to any analysis so unfortunately we must see the 80-year retrograde period of Mars as a long slog, a time when the US government should reign in its global conquest urges rather than attempting to expand US influence in the world.

This need to reign in US power in the world is also shown astrologically by America's SP Full Moon of December 2008 (horoscope with Dec 2008 transits shown) which was spotlighted in the Financial Collapse of 2007--2008 (aka, the Great Bush-Cheney Heist.) Sadly for the American people (and the world) the US government, its minions in Washington, and its supranational bosses did not heed that call for limitation and moderation either and such irrational hubris will eventually lead to more hardship than we've already experienced along with what many people, non-astrologers included, recognize as the dissolution of America in preparation for global governance, aka, as a "new world order". This leads me to believe that the 'power elite' in charge, the shadow government, never intended to reign in US dreams of eternal glory at all because collapse and dissolution of America was and remains their devilish goal.

Related: Thom Hartmann on Why the Crash of 2016 Will Happen (with notes on Antares added by yours truly.)

Please note that the above dates for US SP Mars Rx issue from our natal horoscope of July 4, 17776 5:10 pm LMT with Mars @22Gemini and are based on an approximate Rx period of 80 years which began in Summer 2006 (US SP Mars now @18Libra.) Also note that recent news items concerning the 'Shemitah reset' spotlight 'exceptional' America and its refusal to moderate its activities such as reigning in usury interest rates, corruption, military invasions, etc--much of which is timed by Bush's theatrical bullhorn performance atop WTC rubble--the wrong response to a critical evolutionary lesson brought by the attacks of 9/11/01. However, current releases from the US prison population actually do resonate with Shemitah imperatives. Hopefully there will be adequate follow through to welcome those released back into society with jobs and places to live as they begin their lives over.

Fix Our Broken Criminal Justice System by Bernie Sanders - video (w Saturn-Uranus)

Here is Senator Sanders with an important message:


Saturn, Uranus, Criminal Justice, and Old vs New

Those who use, study, or practice Astrology know that America's natal Saturn in Libra, sign of the Scales of Justice, is in astrologese considered exalted. Yet since July 4, 1776 when Saturn was at 14 Libra 48, America's Secondary Progressed (a year for a day) Saturn has since retrograded by progression and is now at 3 Scorpio (since 1996 if memory serves--Bill Clinton!) This is quite a different influence for Saturn--forceful Mars-Pluto rather than evaluating Venus. Only recently transiting Saturn plodded through Scorpio, sign of big business (like our privatized prison system, towns and cities making money off those who can't pay court fees and traffic tickets, etc, as if they're criminals) but also of transformation, corporatism, the occult, and even death which unfortunately and unfairly has been the fate of an alarming number of our citizens in their cells or beside the road.

Add to this the transit of disruptive Uranus in Aries which has been opposing US natal Saturn within orb since early 2014 and remaining within range of opposition (if we count a 5-degree orb on either side of 14Lib48) until approximately late March 2016. This transit affects many areas of our government, business and legal systems, and other realms that Saturn rules--including systems. Restriction, inhibition, limitation, authority, loss, karma, accountability, responsibility, reward for hard work--you name it and transiting Uranus, planet of upset, upheaval, rebellion, riots, protests, anarchy, and (when Uranus is in Mars-ruled Aries), a signal for blind zealotry, violence, and fanatical fights for ideas has tipped America's Saturnian apple cart in unexpected, unpredictable ways.

Yes, dreamy Utopians have gained quite a bit of ground against the status quo that establishment Saturn tends to prefer. That the US Congress is a target is actually predictable, however, since Saturn also rules lawmakers such as senators and representatives, many of which are or were lawyers.

Included in this transit is the theatrical event on Capitol Hill this very morning when Saturnian John Boehner handed over the Speaker's gavel to a new generation in the person of Uranian Paul Ryan and this may be partially described by transit Uranus opposing US natal Saturn when a 'new order' is demanded. Helpfully, the Full Moon of October 27, 2015 at 3 Taurus 44 acted as a perfect timer since the Sun conjoined US SP Saturn at 3 Scorpio and a culmination or fulfillment (Full Moon) was reached as John Boehner's tenure as Speaker of the House was completed.

Hmm..wonder if the strong Saturn-Uranus energies now affecting our nation are on some deep level resonating with Senator and 2016 candidate Bernie Sanders who was born in 1941 under the auspices of a Saturn-Uranus conjunction?

Wall Street Journal's Bernie Sanders Hit Piece Backfires - clip

Here's David Pakman with a brief push back on a misleading Wall Street Journal article concerning a Bernie Sanders proposal:

And actually some folks say that Social Democracy Is 100% American (clip) which is curious to me since those who use a late afternoon natal horoscope for America (July 4, 1776) can plainly see two planets denoting socialism, social programs, and ill, elderly, weak, and/or poor people--Saturn and Neptune--on either side of our nation's Midheaven (MC = Aspiration; the Goal), the most visible point in any horoscope. Of course, if you're as suspicious of politicians as yours truly you remember that establishing dependency upon social programs is a handy way to control a populace with threats of cutting off the spigot!

For as former presidential candidate Barry Goldwater famously warned us with his shrewd natal Sun Capricorn-Moon Taurus blend of practical Earth energies, "A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away." Or...was it a promise?

So how about the personality blend of Social Democrat and Independent 2016 candidate Senator Bernie Sanders? Sun Virgo-Moon Aries, an Earth and Fire combination of a dedicated worker with a facility with details (Virgo) and a Moon that says I am (Aries) the People (Moon).

video: Bernie Sanders Joined Congress: Health Insurance, Economics (1990 interview)

When Independent Senator Sanders entered the US Congress it had been 40 years since Frazier Reams of Ohio entered the House of Representatives as an Independent. Here's an informative C-SPAN interview with Bernie Sanders whose hair could have used a comb then, too!

View C-SPAN with Bernie Sanders, now a Democratic candidate for US president in 2016 whether the Democratic Party wants him to be or not. Personally I'm glad the senator keeps reminding both Democrats and Republicans of the critical issues now affecting the American people and how our concerns should be addressed in order to level the playing field in this rigged game that favors plutocrats, transnational corporatists, and their political handmaidens and operatives of Washington DC.

For as you know, corporatism + statism = fascism.

Most Americans Agree with Bernie Sanders - Thom Hartmann video (w/ some Astrology)

Do you Feel The Bern yet? Some say Hillary Clinton feels it these days with the approval ratings of Senator Sanders going up and hers going whatever they're going.

Well, here is progressive broadcaster and author Thom Hartmann detailing a list of issues that Bernie and a majority of the American people agree on. The list can be found on the website linked, above.

A Few Astro-Notes Regarding Senator Bernie Sanders

2016 candidate Sanders expresses his practical, dedicated-to-a-cause, socially concerned, idea-loving Virgo Sun and with the Social Democrat/Populist point of view he embodies in the "I AM the people" motto sometimes found with natal Moon (the people) in pioneering Aries, the first sign which asserts the I AM principle.

Yet Bernie's birth time remains unknown as far as I can tell. Even expert San Francisco astrologer Larry Schwimmer, who writes the Astrology column for the Huffington Post, wants Bernie's birth time but doesn't have it. And as Larry reminded me recently, maybe when Bernie was born in New York (Happy Birthday to his nibs this very day!) birth times simply were not recorded. Even so, we can at least consider his Sun Virgo-Moon Aries blend to gain a few personality clues about the populist candidate!

Do you remember that there was a major attempt to take over FDR's presidency in July 1933 just after Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House? Those fascists are ancestors--biological and/or ideological--of the saboteurs who've infiltrated the US government now and are chipping away at the US Constitution.

If you haven't, you may wish to read about the take over plan and General Smedley Butler's reaction to it in Jules Archer's book The Plot to Seize the White House.

Sen. Sanders' consistency - Rachel Maddow's 'Tale of the Tape' (her Sun Aries-Moon Pisces!)

Oh great! I was hoping a clip from MSNB's Rachel Maddow Show last evening would be available for sharing on Stars Over Washington! Last evening (August 13, 2015) she showed Democrats as they were before their 2016 presidential campaigns, or you could say, what lead up to their 2016 bids. Tonight Republican candidates will be featured in the segment, Tale of the Tape:

A Brief Astro-Peek at Rachel Maddow, My Personal 'Splainer-in-Chief for Complex Topics

News reporter Rachel Maddow was born on April 1, 1973 at 12:23 pm PST in Hayward, California (RR: AA, BC/BR in hand, collector: Taglilatelo.) This gives her a Sun Aries-Moon Pisces personality blend and a Moon-ruled Ascendant in late Cancer (she loves to fish and has a 4-degree orb between natal Moon @20Pis29 and Mercury (16Pis21). A Pisces Moon gives empathy and compassion for others, traits that are also seen in a dynamic T-Square pattern involving her Saturn-Neptune (weak, ill, poor people) opposition pointing to communicating Mercury, planet of journalists, reporters, speakers, and thought processes.

Natal Sun in Mars-ruled Aries, sign of 'the pioneer' along with her soft Pisces Moon is a Fire-Water live wire combo of one who lives at a fast pace and with a hint of moralism attached. This blend indicates that Rachel Maddow is a Utopian idealist and visionary (Harveys, see below) whom her Rockefeller colleagues and bosses use to good advantage (to make the public feel that someone cares about the Common Good?) A Rhodes Scholar, Ms. Maddow's Mercury in murky Pisces doesn't seem to have interfered much with her ability for clarity of thought and facility with language but supplied a broad vista for her talents--the 'big picture', as they say, with her reporting putting things into historical context really well.

The Sun Aries-Moon Pisces blend denotes one who can be a restless worrier, single-minded yet dreamy, a kind-hearted maverick, ambitious in career, and a romantic. Possessing an off-beat style, Rachel can be moody yet can act as 'a powerful force for good in the world'. Being intellectually and emotionally true to herself is of utmost importance.

Well, this is a very brief astro-portrait of a complex lady! For a fuller picture, check out her bio and natal horoscope here and catch her Tale of the Tape show tonight if you can!
