Horoscope: US Chiron Return April 2024

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

Issuing from the late afternoon July 4, 1776 Horoscope of America (DoI) with its 4th house Chiron @20Ari08, here is the first of three Chiron Returns for America in our era. As you see, multiple astro-notes are penned on the chart, and the dates of Chiron Returns #2 and #3 are listed, upper right corner:

As you see, this Return occurs on April 20, 2024, the day of the Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction and the freedom issues and the potential for breakthroughs that the duo's 14-year meeting tends to herald.

Now other American Horoscopes may be used for Return charts with slightly different results, but one reason I continue to like the late afternoon chart for July 4, 17776 is Chiron's Sabian Symbol and the implications of its the 4th house placement of Roots: because after all, our nation did begin with pugilists (aka, combatants) fighting on behalf of independence and freedom from the Big Bully across the sea. Plus, in general the 4th house = Basis/Foundation, and Domestic Scene (and Ending/The Drain but let's not go there: these are what our country's enemies are attempting to achieve: the ending of America and the destruction of democracy here and worldwide so Vote Blue in 2024).

For as we know in 2024, a Big Bully and his comrades are inside the house and doing as much damage as they can.

Yet despite this, Chiron in Aries is an optimistic placement for the Wounded Healer centaur, aka, The Key, and suggests that for best results, our focus should be on our willingness to take risks on behalf of the freedom to do and know more and this resonates closely with the Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction - on the very same day!

Then as you know, there's another prominent cosmic event due in April 2024: a Great American Eclipse number 3 of 3 @19Ari24, a visionary affair that precisely conjuncts transit Chiron and sets up the globe for disruption and a change of direction!

American Revolution's Eclipse Aug 2027

As in 1775 Themes Repeat with the 11 South in 2027

by Jude Cowell on behalf of democracy and the common good

Back in the olden days of December 2012, the Horoscope of the American Revolution was published here on SO'W with a few planetary and historical details added such as the war's hidden dynamic.

Below is an excerpt from my December 2012 post which, in my mind, relates to the J6 coup attempt by sore loser Trump and his followers, the extremists, anarchists and zealots willing to overthrow the government of the nation that my Revolutionary War ancestors sacrificed, fought, and died to help establish. 'Maga' hotheads have even had the audacity to cite what they called their "1776 moment" as if their violent, traitorous sabotage of the US Congress that day was in league with the revolt of 1775 against the British monarchy. So actually, they even had the year wrong!

And yet, 'under cover' of the American Revolution, Trump's thugs and maga politicians have sought to justify what was a sore loser attempt to physically force a second Trump "presidency" upon the majority of American voters who had said, enough! to another term of Trumpian brutality and grift. Grudge-holding Donald was rebuffed, and he remains po'd.

Of course predictably, our country is now experiencing a wave of strong-armed violence and threats against anyone in process of holding Trump accountable for instigating J6, plus, for the several other allegations against him, including espionage. And if the US military had played along that day, Trump's coup attempt might have been successful, so it's significant that Republican Senator Tuberville of Alabama has been aiding Trump for months by holding up military promotions. But good news! The new chairman of the Joint-Chiefs-of-Staff, C.Q. Brown, has been successfully confirmed by bipartisan Senate vote, "sidestepping" the Tuberville scheme to hobble our military which damages our national security, and aids Mr. Putin.

And you'll note that House magas are against more funds for Ukraine and it's part of the snag involved with the Republican government shutdown that could be coming November 17th. Meanwhile, Rs are now callously using the Israel-Hamas War (begun October 7, 2023) to further their support of Russia by claiming no support for democratic Ukraine, send the support to Israel instead, they cry!

Thankfully confirmed now is General Randy George as Army Chief of Staff. At least there's a bit more progress although US national security remains in jeopardy, just how America's enemies planned. And you've noticed how the Hamas attack on Israel came only after Tuberville's blockage of military promotions intended to neuter the US military as much as possible.

But speaking of military topics and conditions, let's look ahead to 2027 because a significant Solar Eclipse repeats and it's the one that 'spawned' the American Revolution, and it arrives in early August 2027 (influences begin in July) and, as the Cosmos would have it, the malevolent natal Pluto of Donald Trump @10Leo02 will be 'eclipsed' by it as it casts a disruptive cosmic spotlight his way. This transit indicates power issues or abuse, plus, criminal offences such as gang wars for anyone who lives long enough to experience it.

The American Revolution 1775's 11 South Eclipse occurred @11Pis11; an eclipse in the 11 South Series repeats on August 2, 2027 @9Leo55:

As you see, 10th H Pluto @26Cap41 in 1775, planet of power, manipulation, and control, is in the same degree (26) as battling Mars with Mars @26Leo13 (conjunct Trump's natal Mars). Their inconjunct (150 degr) is nearly partile (exact) and applying (0A27.) A persecuting Mars-Pluto inconjunction (or, quincunx) describes a courageous challenger (Mars) who's grown weary of being someone else's 'workhorse' and Mars' bad temper results in explosive conditions which are made more burdensome by financial stress.

Also notable is transit Pluto in Aquarius aligning in opposition to Trump's Pluto in Leo suggesting a no-compromise struggle for power and control.

These cosmic signals resemble the conditions that sparked the American Revolution to me. How about you?

More eclipse details concerning this topic are available for my SO'W Patreon subscribers, and freshly published this very day; naturally, you're cordially invited to join us! jc

October 2020: Surprise, Zeal, Crisis, and Moon-Pluto

Moon to Pluto: Power To The People!

by Jude Cowell

In a Flurry of Full Disclosure: The following horoscope was recently published to my Stars Over Washington Patreon account and, for the sake of America, appears here with the author's permission (yours truly!); fresh notes on Moon-Pluto are added, below.

August 1, 2020: With a desperate incumbent crouching in the White House and a 'peaceful' passing of presidential baton on our national horizon many pundits and prognosticators are wondering aloud not if but when and what sort of October Surprise may be in store for US voters through the malevolent auspices of Trump, his monied backers both foreign and domestic, and his complicit Trump Party. However, many folks might say that the entire year of 2020 behaves as one huge October Surprise if disrupting the November Election/s, upending society as a whole, discrediting democracy around the world, undermining US systems, institutions, and laws, 'purifying' and reducing the populace, and keeping the scofflaw orange despot in the Oval Office are their primary goals. Apparently, hidden manipulators (ex: Plutonian Plutocrats) want We The People reduced to a more manageable size with politicians like mouthpiece Trump acting as figureheads of their authoritarian agenda.

Question: To Surprise or Not To Surprise?

Now as you know, Astrology provides several techniques to aid such a forecast of Uranian surprise, even shock, yet today let's choose only one timing device - the Secondary Progressed Moon of the USA ('SP'). Using America's founding horoscope for July 4, 1776 5:09 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and progressing it a day-for-a-year, we discover that our nation's natal Moon in Aquarius soon progresses to 29Cap20 where Luna will conjunct US SP Pluto at that exact degree and minute on October 15, 2020 8:00 am edt. Below is the DC Horoscope of this cosmic moment - the intensity of which is building now - including notes concerning various components in relation to Politics and to other realms of concern. Added are the 'real world' transits and midpoint potentials for this symbolic moment which perfects only 19 days prior to Election Day 2020:

Image: Bi-Wheel inner October 15, 2020 8:00 pm US SP Moon-Pluto Conjunction @29Cap20; outer Transits: October 15, 2020 8:00 pm edt Washington DC.

SP Moon-Pluto @29Cap20 rounded up = "30 Capricorn": "A Secret Business Conference"; "Keyword: OPPORTUNITY; positive expression: a gift for clever planning and successful administration in every area of life; negative expression: rampant selfishness and rank exploitation of others" (Jones). Does this sound to you like a Biden administration (being planned) vs the Trump 'administration'?

Potentials for Moon-Pluto working as a duo: any, all, or none may express

From Tyl and Ebertin: Zeal; intensity; fanaticism; extreme emotions; exaggerated new plans; obtaining objectives without any regard for other people; offended vanity or conceit; jealousy; violent outbursts; inner shocks or emotional upheavals; rash actions. Biological: metabolism of liquids; blood disease; pressure caused by toxemia; the endocrine system; cancer indications.

Now quoting in Hegelian form from Munkasey's Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets:

"Thesis: The people's opinion about subjects like crime, war, or internal secrecy; the role of women in controlling self-destructive impulses; popular promises concerning an end to war, waste, etc. in appeals to the people.

Antithesis: encourages violence or crime; people become doubtful about how to exert the proper controls on criminal or terrorist elements; obsessions which bring a misuse of the resources available for country or business."

Sleuthing through a few past horoscopes for significant planets @29/30 Capricorn I found these potentials:

October 2020 Moon-Pluto 29Cap20 = Election Day 2016 Mars (29Cap51): 'using force to achieve changes in corrupt practices; active in assuring the promised protection is delivered; participants in clamor or emotional intensity; intense emotional crisis; deep irritation over delays in any form; anger, quarrels, frustration; too much energy not knowing where to go'.

October 2020 Moon-Pluto = Spring Equinox 2020 Saturn (29:50): 'pressure to regroup forces and plan anew; avoiding the need to look at what must change; realism about how to deal with gloomy or morbid thoughts; authority figures who have a profound effect; constraint; feelings of loss; depression; mental or emotional suffering; one-sided or overwhelming emotions; grave inhibitions'.

Additionally, we should note that Moon-Pluto contacts may suggest intuition or psychism, secrets and/or scandals, plus, the possible discovery of a child born out of wedlock, or perhaps a secret marriage in someone's past that becomes public knowledge.

May 26, 2020 Horoscope: Pluto oppo US natal Mercury

by Jude Cowell

For a while now, transit Pluto has led the tilt of a BOWL shape of planets. Here you see a DC Horoscope set for the moment on May 26, 2020 that transit Pluto and Moon oppose one another across the Cancer-Capricorn security axis ('Moon-Saturn' = a health indicator along with ambition and strategy). Moon-Saturn's signs are intercepted across the 3/9 Communication axis (local vs foreign) suggesting that our problems are karmic and must be dealt with, one way or another. Power-mad Pluto @24Cap46 Rx tilts or tips the BOWL as you see while Luna, acting as an excellent timer (to the second!) makes up the opposite rim of the BOWL. A lack of balance is suggested while simultaneously, Pluto, within orb of US natal Pluto, opposes US natal Mercury Rx which implicates America's surveillance-loving, thought-controlling Mercury-Pluto opposition of July 4, 1776--here with transit Jupiter Rx @24Cap00 conjunct US natal Pluto Rx (27:32). Someone is misusing intelligence reports and/or leaking secrets, which in Washington DC comes as no surprise.

Now I'm not suggesting that the May 26th opposition identifies a moment or a day when a significant event will occur (which would take far more factors than one chart can show) but the chart is posted here merely as a symbolic horoscope spotlighting current conditions in society at the end of May 2020 particularly in the realms of Moon-Pluto, Mercury-Pluto, Jupiter-Pluto, Saturn-Pluto, and more if one cares to seek.

In general, possibilities of the noted planetary pairs include:

Underhanded tactics to gain control, zealotry, ambitious new plans, emotional outbursts, upheavals, investigative research (a vaccine perhaps?), conflicts and uprisings, fanatical aims, plutocrats exploiting the masses (tiresomely!), cold hearts, renunciation, reactionaries and violent people, painstaking work, martyrdom, mass murder, pursuing egoistic aims (wonder who?), a demagogue (peep-eye!), a propagandist, persuasive oration, plagiarism, speculation, large projects, those with power to dispense, 'legal eagles', economists, professors, and, last but not least: a sense of duty, isolation, thrift, self-control, depression, finding fault, wounds, blood transfusions, and/or kidney and other diseases. Obviously, a very difficult period is described and is discernible by conditions and events (sans Astrology) in society.

So What's Not in the BOWL?

The zodiacal signs not contained within the BOWL are: Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius (except for South Node in Sag) and these describe huge areas of experience missing from current proceedings at the moment for the plutonians in charge and thus they represent 'challenges to existence' for those utilizing the BOWL energies as they advocate for a cause or a mission with greedy Pluto 'scooping up' all planetary energies (Jones). Plus, even without the lens of Astrology, few people are unaware of the titanic power struggles ongoing in America and elsewhere between radical reactionary political operatives--saboteurs, I call them, neo-fascists others call them--and the Establishment entities and forces which imply, if not promise, society a less chaotic existence (I'm for that! Can you tell?).

Meanwhile, the restrictive, constraining, tough-minded Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of January 2020 (@22Cap46 - conjunct Trump's natal Vertex!) continues to bedevil the globe, financially and otherwise--and their last conjunction of 1982 @27Lib36 ('Reaganomics') rises at Ascendant in this chart reminding us of our current potentials for difficult circumstances, loss, and silent power - some directly due to the limitations of Reagan era politics and economic policies (ex: cuts to mental health funding, corporate welfare, etc). Besides, we know that mundane Pluto is stealthy and manipulative all by himself and loves to wield silent power! And with karmic loss-leader Saturn by Pluto's side and strong in his own sign of Capricorn, what can possibly go wrong? (snark).

Well, for one thing, that's Trump's natal 12th house Pluto (10Leo02) near the top of the chart ('MC') as you see which always brings along his destructive, brutal midpoint picture of Mars-Saturn = Pluto: 'death of many people, murder, intervention of a higher power' (Ebertin). So we have that going against us as Trump corpses pile up and his particular brand of chaos and mismanagement reign--now with potentials for nuclear testing. Hopefully, nukes won't be 'the higher power' that intervenes.

So as you see at the Foundation of this chart (IC), the trio of heavyweights form a midpoint picture - Saturn-Pluto = Jupiter: 'difficulties caused through illness; social and religious fanaticism' (Ebertin) which pretty much sums up much of what's going on these days, yes?

And with the intense Moon-Pluto influence in this symbolic chart I'm thinking that the Secondary Progressed ('SP') Conjunction of US SP Moon and Pluto in October 2020 may be part of what's forewarned or pre-echoed in this chart. At the least, a cosmic time link is suggested between late May and October 2020 so perhaps Patreon subscribers of SO'W might consider a comparison between this horoscope and America's October SP horoscope recently published to Patreon!

So in closing

Mention should be made of transit Jupiter, the planet of expansion and increase (not always a good thing since negative conditions can be made worse by his presence!), precisely conjoining the natal Pluto of America only once: December 7, 2020. So as you see, this year will be the 79th anniversary of "a date that will live in infamy", a reference to Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor what some have called a version of a 'false flag op' (FDR knew it was coming and did nothing to divert it--similar to Trump and coronavirus in 2020). The attack on Pearl Harbor was then used by Washington to justify America's entry into World War II - which was a case of doing what the Pentagon wanted to do in the first place - an example of a practical use of the Hegelian Dialect that creates a problem then 'solves' it.

And yes, there remains an awful lot of such manipulation and 'solutions' that miss the mark going on in US Politics, that "systematic organisation of hatreds".

So my question for you is: through our years of apathy and laziness, have We The People finally merited the sorry government we've long deserved?

Exact 2020/21 Transits to US natal placements include Pluto oppose US Mercury 3x: February 27, June 26 (this chart), January 1, 2021 (disturbing news, forcing opinions on others, crisis); Saturn conjunct US Pluto 3x (power and control issues, conditions and/or events too large to handle): February 23, August 4, November 20; Jupiter oppose US Mercury 3x: March 30, June 29, November 20 (blunt opinions; tactlessness). Note that November 20, 2020 stands out due to transit Jupiter and Saturn ruffling the US natal Mercury-Pluto opposition. Also note that other pertinent transits and influences must be factored in for a fuller picture to be gained--some negative, and some positive and thus mitigating. Thank Goodness. jc
