Feeling 'badgering and biased'?

If you're feeling badgering and biased these days you'll probably adore book author Sarah Palin's characterization of Katy Couric as being just that. Birds of a feather, you.

Yet in a fit of tough love, I shall let you find Palin's book all by your lonesome (if you must.) Toss a browser in any direction now and you'll happen upon the roguish thing.

Now you'll notice it isn't 'badgered' but 'badgering' - Couric's trick was to do the biased badgering in interview form, says not-ready-for-prime time-politics Palin. She wants to do all the biased badgering herself as she plays 'the underdog' with style and with verve, if not panache.

Some fancy pageant walkin' should be cued asap a la Tina Fey's impersonation of Madame Palin which continually delighted the masses during the 2008 campaign - except for the gullible whose particular dish is the former beauty queen and Alaska governor, Sarah Palin. Many of her fans were not amused.

Surprise! Palin's name as McCain's running mate was let out of the bag just on the tail of then-Senator Obama's Apollo-flavored acceptance speech at the 2008 DNC, Denver. This tactic, you remember, was masterful by the GOP for stealing thunder from Barack the Annointed.

So naturally you can read whatever book you want. Just let me know how it goes. And think about transiting Neptune's veils and deceptions still within range (orb) of Palin's Aquarian line-up in her 7th house of Partnerships: a clumped-together trio of Sun, Mars, and Saturn 25AQ12. I say, '7th house' if the '4:40 pm pst' birth time circulating online is correct (ASC 19Leo34; Feb 11, 1964 Sandpoint, ID.)

Of course, Neptune also brings along The Masses and mass media in a trail of clouds and illusions, with its silver screen (or TV, photos, video screen, etc) and cameras/recorders a-blazing and along for the ride, long as the media circus lasts. Yet Palin has shown herself to be a political lightweight, a perception that would hamper anyone's career in government. Ask what's-his-name Quayle.

At least around here her political reputation is hampering. But it's her n Saturn (responsibility; accountability; maturity) that's being energized with fairy dust by dreamy Neptune. Hmm.

Let's look at the current configuration formed by tr Neptune with Palin's Mars/Saturn conjunction in 7th house by checking what Michael Munkasey has to say and knowing that Mars/Saturn action is usually brash and has a stop-go flavor:

Mars/Sat = Neptune: inefficient use of energy; a weakening (Nep) of well-prepared plans (Saturn) for the development of desires (Mars); defects in training regimens; pretense or cover-ups about the state of preparedness or readiness of self or others.

Then is a World Book Tour in Palin's cards?

Lack of preparation holds our Sarah back yet again unless she comes clean to herself and others concerning deficiencies which may (or may not) then be addressed effectively. Or will it be, Foiled Again? For sparklingly, Neptune's glamour factor holds Madame's cue cards, muddles the mind, and often loses the thread which dissipates like Neptune's wisps of fog...

Then one more thing to remind you of: wherever politicians tell you to look - always look in an opposite direction to discover what political operatives and handlers don't want we-the-public paying attention to.

And illuminate and disseminate the you-know-what out of it.

Well, I'm really just babbling on...been under the weather due to allergies but things are smoothing out now. A parcel has just been Big Browned to the door so for now, adios! We'll soon cue up an old fave: Dinner Rush.

To close this zyrtec-infused, rambling post, here's a close-up of Golden Chanterelles in honor of the Neptunian fairy dust and moonbeams through which even Sarah Palin looks glamous enough for a leadership role.

Wait a minute...what?

Who doesn't want the Fed's veil lifted? the list

Here is a list of names of the shadowy figures who don't want the Fed's veil raised, if you're interested in playing Peep-Eye with them.

Schools are outed so leave your pet campus behind while you think of the magnitude of the booty and the future implications of such grand mega-power being placed in so few grasping hands.

Then, if either of you speak astrologese, consider grandiose Jupiter/Neptune whose year 2009 is and how their combined energies are alchemizing America's natal Moon in Aquarius.

The Fed? Audit! Because Neptune Is in the House

Follow the link above to sign a petition to stop the creep/s.

Oh good...Dave Letterman just showed the Statue of Liberty with Tina Fey's smiling face! Time to hush up my grousings for a few hours and wish you both a Good Night.

And now Dave announces what is news to me: that Amy Winehouse is getting a divorce. I did not know that. Sorry to hear of it.

Leaving Iraq + the 'New President' Eclipse

Iraqis stage mass anti-US occupation rally

Supporters of Shia cleric Moqtada Sadr have staged a mass demonstration in Baghdad in protest against plans to extend the US mandate in Iraq.

An estimated 50,000 protesters chanted slogans such as "Get out occupier!"


As mentioned previously, I must agree with what my mama always said: Never go where you're not invited, never stay where you're merely tolerated.

The toleration (what little there ever was) for US troops in Iraq, has ended.

You know that about 6 days into the new administration, a Solar Eclipse occurs. The Ascendant degree of the Eclipse when set for the White House is 1Sag59 so we may look to the Sabian Symbol for:

'2Sag'..."The Ocean Covered with Whitecaps" which to my ears has a White House/Washington DC flavor to it.

However, '1Sag' is a Symbol I've typed many times here and elswhere relating to the Pentagon, our military, and to the Bush-Cheney wars: "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire."

This indicates to me that the Iraq Occupation and a redeployment or 'surge' into Afghanistan will be first-ups on the desk of the new president. War costs must be on the menu as well, if common sense holds any sway at all.

The January Eclipse degree '6AQ30' is conjunct America's natal South Node, a point of separation and of falling back on past behaviors and talents. If the 'past behaviors' are are better ones from our past, that's okay by me. But if it's unconscious behavior, it'll be more of the same Bushiness. You know - bashing your head against a brick wall and expecting a different result than self-undoing.

And I think that this Eclipse points to America's upcoming Nodal Half-Return, when our weaker relationships and associations may be broken. This Nodal Half-Return (as you will see notated upon the Eclipse chart) occurs on or about April 8, 2009 (using True Node.)

Obviously, the days between Jan 20 (or Jan 26, counting from the Solar Eclipse) until at least April 8 will be key, as the first days of any administration are, for they set the tone for the presidential term. We tend to call the period the "first 100 days" which goes into early May, of course. But it will be interesting to see if associations are broken around early April, give or take a few weeks or so.

Also the first 100 days of an administration are often referred to as a honeymoon period after which reality sets in along with a tinge of buyers' remorse, in many cases.

So with Europe and the rest of the world running from Washington and Wall Street like the plague because of the bandits and thieves who've burned them once too many times, it may be others breaking with us before it's the other way round.

But we'll see, esp since the influence of the Jan 26 Eclipse has to do with making greater commitments in relationships. It's an interesting influence coming upon the degree of our SN, a separative point (the Dragon's Tail), and with a Nodal Half-Return falling within the Eclipse season. All in all, it's a dicey season all around, but you don't need Astrology to tell you that.

Still, a Nodal Half-Return is problematic only where weak associations are concerned...if they don't break then, they will be strengthened going forward.

Soon I will be publishing the chart of what I'm calling the 'New President' Eclipse (Jan 26, 2009; 2:55:12 am est; White House) at Jude's Threshold on my Pages list in the sidebar column.

Check there in the next day or so if you'd like to view the chart and read my notes.

Today I'm still trying to rest up from the final presidential debate and from SNL's Sarah Palin~Tina Fey-lin shenanigans this weekend, but here is the Sabian Symbol for the US natal South Node's degree, and thus for the Jan 26 Eclipse itself (rounding up seems to refer to the Oval Office, shaped like Venus' egg)...

'7AQ'..."A Child Born of an Eggshell"...ESSENTIALITY...

pos: a highly individual and completely unlimited resourcefulness;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: naive reliance on external accident.

And, because opposite is America's North Node, aka destiny or path, here is '7Leo'...

"The Constellations in the Sky"...SURETY...

pos: consistent effectiveness in understanding and self-ordering;

neg/uncons/shadow side: a loss of all present integrity through an unnecessary retreat to the remote or mysterious.

The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Dr. Marc Edmund Jones


For more details, here are the Symbols as given by Dane Rudhyar:

US natal South Node + Jan 26, 2009 Solar Eclipse degree:
