Elise Stefanik July 2, 1984

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy over fascism

From the Wikipedia page of Republican congress member Elise Stefanik we learn that she was born July 2, 1984 in Albany, New York, with Sun in Cancer, Moon in either Leo or Virgo, and under the restrictive rays of a 4 North Solar Eclipse.

So below, without a known birth hour and a mispelled surname (mea culpa!), is what little I can ascertain about Trump supporter Elise Stefanik based on a noon natal horoscope; note that Stefanik has done a complete one-eighty concerning the J6 insurrection/coup attempt and now shills on behalf of D. John Trump and wants to be Trump's running mate, says a recent op-ed in The Guardian:

And here's an unmarked noon horoscope with Stefanik's name spelled correctly:

"Blood Moon" Eclipse October 28, 2023

by Jude Cowell, partisan for democracy

Quite a few study notes are penned upon the DC Horoscope of the "Blood" Moon Eclipse of October 28, 2023 @5Tau09 conjunct 2nd cu$p - perfecting at 4:24:01 pm EDT in time for Halloween 2023. Please enlarge the image for better viewing.

Right away we see that with fraudulent Neptune rising in shady Pisces, our espionage, sabotaging of government, and gaslighting troubles continue, plus, political, ideological, and religious conflicts extend along with financial concerns (Sun @6Scorpio: "A Gold Rush"); relationships may end if not strong enough to survive current strains.

Yes, these are tragic days of separation and mourning (Saturn = Moon-MC; R. Ebertin) afflicting suffering people around the globe, and a fateful struggle is engaged (Pluto = Saturn-MC). Meanwhile, uncertainty, insecurity, and neuroses continue to cause problems, not the least of which is in the US Congress due to "maga" Republicans who are there to sabotage, not govern.

However, Neptunian veils and disguises are due to be exposed and the spotlight of a lunar eclipse creates the perfect timing for it! Plus, we always expect significant leaks of secrets and inconvenient information when a lunar eclipse is in the picture. And for DC, this particular 'wild card of the Universe' shows sneaky Neptune rising!

Now below you see that the Midheaven ('MC"), the Goal Point of any horoscope, sports Cupido atop the chart which suggests that entities such as Corporatism, The Syndicate (crime; mafia; secret organizations), and 'The Family' (religion) remain primary antagonists of a democratic America as foreign and domestic enemies form coalitions, however loose or temporary, intended to collapse our nation. But not so fast: because the Moon's symbol, "A Bridge Being Built Across a Gorge" hints that a Speaker of the House will be found - perhaps a democrat such as Hakeem Jeffries who can work with "both sides of the aisle." Yet how well 'the people's business' might then proceed is anyone's guess. But we know it's definitely a dud under anti-democracy "maga" Republicans.

"Blood" Lunar Eclipse October 28, 2023 @5Tau09 4:24:01 pm EDT:

As you well know, the world is in crisis (Solar Eclipse in the 7 South Saros Series--here in 7th house @21Lib08) and yet hope for improvement is available via "an obstacle suddenly clears" (7 South, B. Brady). The late October Lunar Eclipse in Venus-ruled Taurus represents the culmination phase of the last New Moon (7S Eclipse) of October 14, 2023. And with a Taurus Moon, we may expect changes in financial matters, eclipse or not. Then of course, both Libra and Taurus are Venus-ruled and relate to money, valuations, and materialism.

Sun Sco-Moon Tau (Water-Earth; Mars-Pluto, Venus)

This blend of conscious-unconscious energies shows determination, intense idealism, and concern for others. However, a tendency toward dogmatism can rear its head especially when pride and self-esteem are under threat. An inherent understanding of financial realities and an inflexible or rigid will may be noticed, along with an occasional blindness toward the motives of others.

Now let's consider one of this blend's "Images for Integration" which seems most appropriate for the times - and the low-charactered people - such as these:

Pluto takes Persephone Into the Underworld (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, The Harveys #ad).

So this is a brief look at the October 2023 'Blood' Moon Eclipse with the chart set for Washington DC as a symbol of the United States of America. Notably, nebulous Neptune in Pisces acts as the final dispositor of the horoscope - and links to the Republican Party as the political party in the US that formed in 1854 with Neptune in mid-Pisces, so I blame their underhanded ways for most if not all of our current troubles. And as far as yours truly is concerned, the GOP can dissolve itself any way it likes as long as it doesn't wash our country down the drain with it. Besides: Republican politicians don't represent even half the US population so why should they run the show with their hateful fasc*st agenda?

118th Congress w/ Govt Shutdown Oct 1, 2023

by Jude Cowell, a partisan for democracy and the common good

Just a quick posting of a bi-wheel of DC Horoscopes: the 118th Congress (inner) surrounded by a chart showing the possible GOP government shutdown (outer) set for October 1, 2023 12:00 am EDT, Capitol Building. Why quick? Because the shutdown may not happen at all, and because my time is as valuable as any of the Utopian idealists now working to sabotage the House of Representatives in their determination to destroy the US Congress, the US Justice System, and the federal government via the White House -- in words, our three branches of government are obstacles to their take-over agenda as is the US Constitution.

Of course, harming President Biden in case it boosts Republicans in November 2024 would be a bonus of causing yet another shutdown, they think, and the collateral damage to the US economy and to the lives of the American people - well these are only necessary side issues for the GOP. They'll even blame Democrats for any negative shutdown consequences if they can! And significant damage to the US Military is well underway thanks to Mr. Tuberville.

Yet this hostage scheme hasn't worked well for Republicans before but we do get to marvel at their neurotic activity as a head-against-wall exercise while expecting different outcomes. Be sure to note the Neptune/MC notes penned on, upper middle.

Meanwhile at home, the GOP's aberrant, underhanded behavior allows the American public and the entire world to witness them (self-styled ultra-magas) as they follow orders from their overlords, enemies of the US, both foreign and domestic. Why, even their cult idol Herr Trump must act under orders even though his mind is so addled lately he thinks he ran a race against President Obama!

Anyway, here's the bi-wheel. Do with it whatever you can:

Hopefully you can enlarge the image if you wish and read my study notes of which there are many.

The US Congress Eclipse repeats in 2023!

by Jude Cowell

Do you know that the First Session of Congress in 1789 began under the influences of a 7 North Solar Eclipse?

And that since April 2023, an eclipse in the 7 North Saros Series is running in the background of society as I type, and is also the Prenatal Solar Eclipse Series ('PE") of Special Prosecutor Jack Smith?

You may also wish to view a previous post showing transit Saturn conjunct US Congress' Pluto, and transit Neptune conjunct US Congress' Mercury Rx with the Midterms 2022 Lunar Eclipse Horoscope surrounding Congress' 1789 chart; you'll remember that results from the 2022 Midterm Elections allowed certain J6-adjacent 'maga' Republicans to infiltrate the House of Representatives of the 118th Congress.

Castor vs Rukbat: Stalemate of Sedition 2023

by Jude Cowell

As Republican seditionists in the House continue holding the US Congress hostage and paralyzed, thus crippling lawmakers from doing "the people's business", you see below, lower left, a Horoscope of the January 6, 2021 'Mob Attack' (Trump's coup attempt: Capitol Building breached at 2:15 pm est) and the coup attempt's Solar Return 2023 Horoscope, upper right.

My study notes are penned messily on the charts; please enlarge or print the image for easier reading, if you're curious.

Oh and keywords for Castor? Crippling of limbs, and mental illness (how about neurosis: the irrationality of repeating actions over and over and expecting different results? Yet the House logjam has to break at some point, right?). Here we find that Castor opposes (challenges) Rukbat, star of steadiness and strength, in governmental Capricorn:

Why Congress Can't Cut Defense Spending: Feat. Rep. Mark Pocan - clip

Here's a recent segment from a Thom Hartmann broadcast with guest Rep. Mark Pocan:

And here's a nostalgic view of the Pentagon's founding horoscope (April 29, 1942) with its war-waging, out-of-bounds Mars in Moon-ruled Cancer (touchy!) at apex of two difficult midpoints: ruthless Saturn-Pluto and fanatical Uranus-Pluto, creating both brutal and intense conditions.

Additionally, snugged around this particular view of the Pentagon 1942 chart is the DC Horoscope of the 12 North Solar Eclipse of January 15, 2010 (@25Cap01, in the highly sensitized area of governmental/legal Capricorn which includes US Pluto Return, a three-fer due to planetary retrogradation).

As for America's years of out-of-this-world amounts of defense spending, we might consider Capricorn eclipses for their negative implications of ruler Saturn: avarice and selfishness which impede karmic progress and identify the imperative to adhere to conservative Saturn's demands for self-control, conscientiousness, sober thinking, and self-discipline when it comes to financial investments (rather than clearing out the National Treasury - and all the while promoting austerity for the masses).

From a previous post, let's close with a quote clipped from President Eisenhower's famous 'Chance for Peace' speech of 1953, an era when the Republican Party wasn't sadistic, brutal, deceptive, and crass as it is now:

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children."

Hakeem Jeffries: Leo Sun-Virgo Moon

Offical Portrait, Hakeem Jeffries; United States Congress, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

Astro-Notes: A New House Minority Leader

by Jude Cowell

Promotion is in the air in Washington DC, for today, House Democrats elected Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) to the position of House Minority Leader beginning in early January 2023, and replacing Nancy Pelosi. Both a 9:00 am est and 12:00 pm Horoscope of the 118th Congress have been published previously if you'd care for a look.

Meanwhile, the following is a brief overview concerning the natal planets of Hakeem Jeffries born August 4, 1970 in Brooklyn, NY (grew up in Crown Heights, a part of Poughkeepsie NY); no birth hour is available so noon is used; his Wikipedia page provides more biographical details.

First here's an unmarked (by my messy study notes) noon horoscope with aspect grid:

And below is the messy version of the very same noon horoscope where we find Rep. Jeffries' Saturn in Taurus leading a BOWL shape of planets and denoting one who advocates for a cause or leads a mission with Neptune Rx in Scorpio in wide opposition (6A20) to Saturn. This suggests becoming responsible in public matters such as social work, yet with a possible hint of secret activities (if nothing else, political work fills that bill all by itself).

In addition, finances are involved (Taurus-Scorpio axis) which must in part refer to the constant task of soliciting donors as congressional politicians must continually do; (other activities in the sphere of finance are unknown to me at this point, but perhaps we'll discover more as his tenure goes on - and we should also note that he's a corporate lawyer, or was one).

Then as you see, his energetic Sun-Mars Conjunction reveals him to be a fighter with Leo the sign of the natural leader. This solar conjunction works well with his authoritative Saturn (planet of law, government, and business) leading all his planets in conservative, stable Taurus, a money sign of growth, investment, and preservation, and his Leo-Virgo combination of conscious-unconscious energies reveals an intellectual, analytical, and dedicated blend devoted to duty, and demanding, exacting Saturn in Fixed Taurus approves!

If necessary, feel free to enlarge and/or print the charts for clearer viewing.

One interesting natal chart factor that the lack of an accurate birth time doesn't affect - and is a cosmic link to soon-occurring events - is that Minority Leader Jeffries was born into an 8 North Solar Eclipse Series (March 7, 1970 @16Pis44) with any eclipse in Pisces identifying individuals gifted with the highest level of spiritual awareness, and also a potential for esoteric interests. However, Pisces also links the new House Minority Leader to issues of secrecy and to karmic relationships. For information on this, I'd look at his intense Venus-Pluto Conjunction in Virgo!

Yet the point is, 8 North repeats on April 8, 2024 @19Aries (conjunct Chiron) as yet another Great American Eclipse (#3 of 3) with themes of 'inventiveness, visions, and flashes of genius' (B. Brady). Well, as you know, eclipses are always karmic in nature so we might wonder if fated conditions will be involved for Hakeem Jeffries in 2024 such as participation in a presidential race. Certainly, 2024 will, at the least, be a significant year for the visionary Mr. Jeffries. Yet it seems notable to me that the rounded-up degree of his natal Chiron is "11 Aries" = "The President of the Country," and his recent Chiron Return was a three-fer with the third return occurring on or about February 21, 2022.

And so if I were you, dear reader, I'd stay tuned to SO'W for more musings on such possibilities!

Midterms 2022 Planets to US Congress Horoscope

US Congress' Transits: November 2022 into Early 2023

by Jude Cowell

Below is a simple display showing a bi-wheel of the US Congress Horoscope of 1789 (inner) and the Midterms 2022 Lunar Eclipse Chart (outer). As you see, there are two significant planetary contacts on Election Day 2022: from 2022 Saturn in Aquarius and 2022 Neptune in Pisces.

Also of note is transit Mars Rx perigee in Gemini recently stirring up 1789 Moon and Chiron as he will again by the end of 2022 with Mars to Moon suggesting a very busy, even hasty time, when anger easily flares, plus, Mars to Chiron has 'sacred warrior' implications which contain forceful energies tinged with a measure of righteousness.

Also notable is that recently, transit Neptune hit 1789 Saturn (@13Pis38; strange, misguided notions) and Sun (@14Pis33; unrealistic ideas, impractical goals), and 2022 Saturn has also hit 1789 Venus and will do so again into January 2023 (@22AQ04; serious conditions; lack of humor; relationship issues or endings) before moving over the 11:00 am Midheaven of 1789 when Saturnian responsibility and acountability arrive, and rewards are meted out to the deserving few who have honored Saturn's demands. However, casting blame on others for one's mistakes simply will not do, neither will dishonesty.

Then with 1789 Mars (@29AQ04, a critical 29th degree) awaiting a visit from transit Saturn (once on February 27, 2023), we may expect a head-against-brick-wall atmosphere for some members of Congress while those with great determination will have enough oomph to remove obstacles in their paths to success:

Please refer to the image for penned-on potentials for the two transits: Saturn to Pluto and Neptune to Mercury, then bestir thyself to think of more possibilities!

Nov 2022: Are gridlock government and shutdowns on the way?

Blurred: Will It Be the Tyranny of One-Party Rule?

by Jude Cowell

Besides blurring political prospects for the 2024 election, one of the more basic results from last evening's Midterms 2022 Elections is certain to be an increase of gridlock government where the needs of the American people are even less addressed than before. Yesterday's Total Lunar Eclipse (a red 'blood moon') in Taurus did sport radical Uranus conjunct the Moon, after all, so anti-social voters and unexpected happenings were and are in play.

Meanwhile, control of the House and Senate hang in the balance as I type with Republicans promising to finagle more government shutdowns if they should take control of Congress in order to force cuts in our social safety net programs, eventually destroy them, and thereby cause misery of the masses (one of their specialities). This really would be a radical change of course with Uranian flair, and control of Congress may come down to a run-off in my home state of Georgia which would be held on December 6th, last I heard.

Yet today it seems significant that no 'red wave' of the 'blood moon' has occurred but neither did a Blue one, more's the pity for democracy and the Biden administration. Even so, we can still say that outcomes could've been worse - and happily, some of Tr*mp's favored candidates lost their races so the orange blighter is weaker today than he was yesterday - and 2024 hopeful Ron DeSantis has retained his grasp on Florida!

Now ordinarily in America, gridlock in Congress, where few if any legislation can be agreed upon by both parties, is considered a good thing for our federal government because the Founders wanted power to challenge power along with our traditional checks'n'balances (Jupiter-Saturn). Not that maga Republicans respect American traditions - because our traditions such as the peaceful transfer of power get in the way of their plan for one-party tyranny.

Such stalemates should work as protections for the American people, erecting a wall against tyranny yet it's difficult to retain faith in the gridlock-is-good concept when election liars and deniers and their favorite insurrectionist politicians of sedition who don't 'believe' in governing, are tilting our politics and our lives toward a fascist style of government and hurling the US toward totalitarianism with Nazi implications.

Still, for a while at least, I rejoice today because last evening the US Congress failed to gain a huge amount of weight when maga candidate and snake oil pitchman Mehmet Oz lost to John Fetterman in Pennsylvania - and to this I say a hearty hip hip hooray!

DC Horoscope: 118th Congress Opens Jan 3, 2023

If all goes as usual, the 118th Congress of the United States, after being sworn in, will meet in first session upon Capitol Hill from January 3, 2023 to January 3, 2025. Depending upon results of the 2022 Midterms in November, varying levels of loyalty to their congressional oaths are to be expected.

So below is a bi-wheel of two DC Horoscopes, both set for the first official day of the 118th Congress, January 3, 2023 - one chart for 9:00 am est (as if!), the other for the more civilized noon hour which is the official hour of opening; the 9:00 am chart shows a behind-the-scenes line-up of planets in the 12th house of Large Institutions, a place were backroom deals are made:

Please enlarge or print the image for clearer reading. A few notes are penned on the chart and naturally there are similarities between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm on the same day such as:

By noon, the Gemini Moon (the public) is out-of-bounds ('OOBs') as is activist planet Mars which conjuncts US 1776 Uranus, so dangerous issues remain in play along with deceit about true motives (Neptune-NN = noon ASC: some lawmakers are uncomfortable being in the presence of other lawmakers). You'll notice that neither chart-ruler makes an applying aspect (so their signs and houses are emphasized), and notably, lawmaker Saturn in Aquarius is unaspected in both horoscopes. This suggests congress members with senior status - and/or, who are unconcerned, inconsistent, and/or conscience-free. A lack of organization may be noticed, yet an inordinate amount of focus and concentration will be applied by some although their focus may be one-pointed and/or too narrow.

(Of course, a different opening hour changes chart-rulers.)

As you see, problematic zealot Uranus, planet of chaos, continues to hang around with the North Node of destiny indicating radical reactionary political operatives while financial largesse (Taurus) pours in from unconventional donors and backers with coup d'etat objectives and a leaning toward intolerance. (btw: if you've yet to check out the Rachel Maddow Presents Ultra podcast, delay no longer!).

Meanwhile, communicating Mercury is retrograde so issues cycle up from the 117th Congress and before, while the Capricorn Sun leads a BOWL shape of the planets which indicates a leader or leaders advocating for a cause.

My cause is democracy over the totalitarianism - whether it's cloaked in theocracy, fascism, or nazism. How about you?

#VoteBlueToSaveDemocracy! Because if we don't, our children and grandchildren will be very sorry when it's gone. And we will deserve to be blamed.

Notes on tour-leader Barry Loudermilk

U.S. House Office of Photography, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons: Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia

Undermining Democracy: Tour Leader Barry Loudermilk

by Jude Cowell

With the information being revealed this June during the current public J6 Select Committee Hearings, you've probably heard that on January 5, 2021, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA; pictured above; link to the video released by the J6 Committee) led a tour of the Capitol Building the day before the Trump coup attempt of January 6, 2021. Of course, Republicans want the public to believe that there is no link between the two events. Puh!

Seemingly related to the threats of violence is that Loudermilk's tour involved Capitol Building tunnels where insurrectionists the next day were determined to gas to death the lawmakers who were in hiding there for protection from Trump's yelping mob.

So for the astrologer within you, here's a previous post displaying a bi-wheel of two horoscopes: Coup Attempt 2021 and the J6 Public Hearing of June 9, 2022. Notably on the topic of gassing people hiding in tunnels, we find that the death duo of Mars-Saturn at the first public hearing of June 9, 2022 was @18Pisces conjunct the 2021 coup attempt's position of gaseous Neptune, karmic planet of gaslighting, fumes, toxins, poisons, death, loss, and the urge to merge.

Helpfully, Reinhold Ebertin provides revealing potentials concerning the midpoint picture that the three planets create (all, any, or none may apply and are subject to transits and progressions):

"Waning powers and weakening efforts; insufficient power to tackle obstacles; undermining of vitality through poison, gas, or an epidemic; mysterious death; grievous and grave loss (The Combination of Stellar Influences, R.E. #ad). Michael Munkasey adds, "weakening of plans" and "cover-ups." Noel Tyl suggests, "feeling threatened."

So as you know, the primary threat came from the Executive Branch of government residing free of charge in the White House assaulting the Legislative Branch on Capitol Hill by using militia-style thugs, gangsters, and ruffians, along with a stirred up mob of gullible, discontented, lied-to Americans told to "fight like he*l" and "stop the steal." And it seems to me that any, all, or none of the January 6th participants could have acted or intended to act as assassins - and as you know, people did die that day, and some died soon after.

So perhaps, dear reader, we can agree that instigator Trump's natal midpoint picture of death, murder, and rage is involved with his revenge and underlies it all - from his unconscious 12th house: Mars-Saturn = Pluto. And we know that, desperate to stay in power, what could've stopped the orange menace from using such drastic measures to have his way? Logical advice and the fact of his election loss made no difference to him. Herr T preferred what a drunken Rudy was telling him - what he wanted to hear.

Meanwhile, when it comes to Rep. Barry Loudermilk, his bio states that he was born in Riverdale, Georgia on December 22, 1963 but with no known birth time, a general look at the planets on that day (basically Winter Solstice 1963) can provide us with some amount of information concerning the smiling tour-leader pictured above.

December 22, 1963 Planets:

The earliest positions of Sun: 29Sag37 and Moon: 9Pis31; latest positions of Sun: 00Cap38 and Moon: 22Pis49 (12:00 am to 11:59 pm). Therefore, we know that his Sun-Moon personality blend is either a Sun Sagittarius-Moon Pisces combo or a Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces with Luna remaining in Pisces. The first pair is a steamy Fire-Water blend while the second is a more practical Earth-Water combination. Obviously, chances are better through the 24-hour period of his birth date that Rep. Loudermilk is a Sun Sag-Moon Pisces personality blend so those are the notes I'll type for you based on Charles and Suzi Harvey's Sun Sign-Moon Sign details (#ad).

Mr. Loudermilk's general potentials include:

Fervent; restless; emotional; humanitarian (!); visionary; a moralistic mystic with deep convictions; philosophical; generous; an irrational logician (my italics); humorous; an advice-giver who sees the folly of everyone's ways; an impractical wastrel; suspicious; divine discontent; may fall hopelesly in love; can be emotionally gushy; is able to sort out the real from the unreal (so he knows better but tends toward Piscean gullibility which is easy for grifters to exploit).

Note that in the realm of relationships, there are multiple indications in Loudermilk's natal horoscope of secret romantic involvements or liaisons but without knowing his natal Ascendant and Midheaven positions, the cosmic picture of him is somewhat out-of-focus so I'll say no more about secretive behavior which he may not express at all.

Plus, it's beyond the scope of this post, but of further interest is that Rep. Loudermilk's Mercury, Mars, and Venus are in Saturn-ruled Capricorn, sign of government, law, business, and investments. Besides lawmaking, this hints that Barry may be familiar with insider trading since so many politicians are. Feathering their nests, you know. Is Barry a game bird, too? Well, at the least, a career in Politics does make sense for him. Meanwhile, this Republican tour-leader doesn't want to talk to the Committee again, or so I've heard. He denies, but his January 5th actions are clearly visible on the video tape linked above!

Loudermilk's Solar Eclipse Cycle a Prominent One

Meanwhile, let's add the fact that even without having an accurate birth time for tour-leader Barry Loudermilk, we know that he was born into the 1 North Saros Series which manifested for him on July 20, 1963 @27Cancer (precisely opposite US 1776 Pluto that is now in process of performing America's first-ever Pluto Return, and the opposition to the eclipse implies either higher spiritual vibrations or a turn toward animalism). Does this remind you of the Trump mob's primal violence exhibited on January 6, 2021? Me, too.

Then as you may remember, the last manifestation of a 1 North Solar Eclipse is known as The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @29Leo conjunct royal Regulus with themes that include 'distorted, possibly false information' added to the caution of Regulus: 'success if revenge is avoided, otherwise all that's been gained will be taken away'. And this, conjunct Herr T's natal Ascendant which personalized the eclipse for him (and for America since he was our representative, ill-suited as he was).

Additionally, the 1 North series is also known as The Mother of All Eclipses and is the one that Nostradamus warned about for its 'King of Alarm' or 'King of Terror' implications as the New Millennium was beginning.

Well, with current conditions of violence and the threat of more violence issuing from nazi-style saboteurs and henchmen, we're really in the thick of it now. So please stay safe, everyone, and I'll try to do the same.

Bi-Wheel: Coup Attempt 2021 w/ J6 Public Hearing June 2022

June 9th Accountability Knocks: Will the Guilty Answer?

by Jude Cowell

On April 29, 2022, J6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson told the American people to expect "at least 8 hearings" investigating Trump's Attempted Coup of January 6, 2021. Finding no exact hour the opening hearing of June 9, 2022 may begin, the following bi-wheel shows the Public Hearing (outer) set for the speculative hour of 9:30 am edt, Capitol Building (or other DC location) with US natal North Node (meetings) conjunct the IC (endings) of the Trump Coup Attempt chart (inner).

Note: Although I'm calling this the 'first' public hearing, Capitol Hill officers testified in July 2021 about the coup attempt. These horoscopes are posted today because most of us are hoping that politicians and others who aided and abetted Trump's power grab scheme will be held accountable bwo of the J6 Summer 2022 hearings, and by the DOJ. If the culprits aren't, a coup attempt will occur again, as everyone knows. Yet a plus is that transit Pluto conjunct Mercury supplies deeper powers for delving into hidden meanings and motivations, so let's take appropriate actions to protect democracy and our Republic!

For the January 6, 2021 insurrection horoscope shown here, I'm using 1:32:32 pm est so that 26Tau27 rises with malevolent Algol conjunct Trump's natal Midheaven 'MC' (the goal), along with the opening hearing's Mercury, planet of testimony, communication, negotiation - but also of lies, deception, theft, and trickersterism. Transit North Node @22Tau15 conjuncts ASC as well which suggests that Trump has been and will be the central figure in the J6 proceedings (for clear reasons). And yes, the leader of the sabotage felt very joyful on that day as shown by Sun = Venus-Jupiter!

Both Charts/Events: Moon-Mars Oppositions with Don't Tred On Me Vibes

Besides the anger, quarrels, fights, and self-willedness that a Moon-Mars opposition suggests, a prominent transit for Trump is legal eagle planet of karma, accountability, and timing, Saturn Rx @25AQ14, opposing Trump's natal Mars in Leo (and his natal Ascendant, for that matter). This denotes potentials for gridlock, anger and resentment, negative dealings with males and the public, illness (heart problems, stress, strain, inflammation, injuries), and yes, a potential for violence. According to R. Ebertin, there are also indications of 'mysterious death, grievous loss, insufficient power to tackle obstacles or resistance, weakening efforts, self-torment', and/or the 'undermining of vitality' via 'poison, gas, or epidemic', as shown by the J6 public hearing's Mars-Saturn @18Pis23 conjunct Coup Attempt Neptune @18Pis35) with Mars-Saturn as 'the death axis'. We should brace for the possibility that sinister, mysterious, or subversive events could occur before or during the Summer 2022 J6 hearings. This is supported by the ongoing themes of the current 6 North Solar Eclipse (@10Tau28 on April 30, 2022) suggesting 'commitments accepted due to another person's unreliability or illness' and with 'relationships to authority figures' being prominent (paraphrasing B. Brady).

Now there are multiple planetary contacts between the two horoscopes and events as you see and some are mentioned, above. But let's continue our focus with the multi-faceted contacts affecting the Coup Attempt's Mercury-Pluto conjunction, remembering that 2022 is the year of America's first-ever Pluto Return (3x for good measure). And let's note that the Coup Attempt's Saturn-Pluto midpoint is joined by the Public Hearing's Pluto which adds recognition and confrontation with evil to the mix (Munkasey). There, I typed it: pure evil such as the 2020 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction @22Cap46 cosmically consolidated for humanity as their nearly 33-year cycle began once again - while perfecting their conjunction directly upon the natal Vertex of Mr. Trump (22Cap51): fated encounters or wish fulfillment? Perhaps both

Thing is, it's time for Americans to decide once and for all what sort of country we have and what brand of government we want, and the J6 hearings are part of the challenge along with the US Pluto Return/s. It's as if the old R vs D stand-offs are distilled into the current Authoritarianism vs Democracy tug of war, but we must be certain to recognize that it's brutal, malevolent neo-nazis mounting the challenge to American democracy. Why, even the double Moon-Mars oppositional influences echo Trump's natal Mars opposing (targeting) US natal Moon in Aquarius. How much plainer can the Cosmos make the threat?

Then What About the Libra Moon/s?

So besides Luna's opposition with warrior planet Mars, the Moon on June 9, 2022 @12Lib11, a critical degree, acts as the handle of a Bucket pattern and thus is a primary driver or motivator of the proceedings. As you know, the mundane Moon = the public, publicity, public relations, family, security concerns, and as a timing agent, we should note that the Coup Attempt's Moon @21Lib31 returns to her position (a Lunar Return) on June 10, 2022 at 2:00:59 am edt with early Aries rising. An earlier position of testy Mars is signifiant - @12Ari02, a critical-crisis degree - exactly opposite the June 9th Public Hearing's Moon (12Lib11) which is a Moon-Mars (angry or upset people!) emphasized again.

And a cosmic echo of the Tr*mp natal Mars @26Leo opposing US natal Moon.

Apr 2022 Eclipse: a Cosmic Time Link

Washington's 1802 Syzygy Moon Eclipsed in April 2022

by Jude Cowell

April 5, 2022

Multiple horoscopes exist for the City of Washington DC and, if memory serves, the timing of one chart previously posted here (May 3, 1802: incorporation as a city) may be based on a letter written by Thomas Jefferson or simply on historical record, plus, there's a historically timed 'founded' version set for the events of July 16, 1790, a day when transit Saturn in early Aries was strong at Direct Station, yet transit Nemesis and Phaethon were conjunct @00Gemini (hardly a jolly alignment, if I do say so myself).

Meanwhile, the following bi-wheel of charts displayed below, uses neither of those dates, for the inner horoscope shows the Syzygy Moon (prior lunation) of DC's May 3, 1802 incorporation - the New Moon @10Tau54 of May 1, 1802. The reason to use the May 1st chart in the bi-wheel is because the incorporated city's Syzygy Moon will be precisely 'eclipsed' on April 30, 2022 by the 6 North Solar Eclipse @10Tau28 (see 6th house). This eclipsing may be significant or it may be nothing to pay the least bit of attention to these 220 years later!

And yet this synchronicity does time both a Solar and a Lunar Return to the May 1, 1802 Syzygy Moon lunation, suggesting what could be a sort of culmination or fulfillment in relation to Taurean matters (growth, development, valuations, materialism, greed, rigidity, and/or intolerance), that were seeded or planned at the 1802 New Moon. Also involved are relationships and full awareness potentials especially since all eclipses are Uranian and as such tend to uncover hidden factors, disrupt events to the point of causing changes of direction, and/or may activate scandals along with Technology playing its part.

Then considering the abundance of Taurean energies we have here, financial and investment matters are most likely at the top of the cosmic menu, as well as the opposite sign of Scorpio which brings in secrets, spying, control and manipulation, corporatism, plus, death and, hopefully, regeneration:

Even the recent passage in the House of the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Bill is suggested by the April 2022 Eclipse since Taurus rules neck and shoulders - Congress has tried to pass an anti-lynching bill in previous years - so will 2022 bring legislative success? Rascist issues and connections between then and now may also be indicated (for it isn't as if such issues - America's founding flaw - have been adequately dealt with, even at this late date).

And so, if nothing else, a cosmic time link forms between May 1802 and April 2022 (and until the next Solar Eclipse of October 25, 2022 @2Scorpio) so that historical events and conditions of 1802 may be worth considering in light of current political/societal issues and events, along with the themes of the 6 North Eclipse which are penned upon on the image, upper right, such as 'relationship to authority figures, need to take control' and 'accepting commitments due to another's unreliability or illness' (paraphrasing B. Brady). A father's reputation may also be involved.

Eclipse Cycles, Historical Cycles, Cosmic Time Links

The Washington DC Horoscope May 3, 1802 (of incorporation) indicates that transit Saturn in 2023 will conjunct DC's Pluto in Pisces bringing very large events and continuing our government's power and control issues. But first, transit Pluto must creep through the sign of Aquarius which times a period of massive changes and reforms.

Significant 1802 Events include the Judiciary Act of 1802, enacted to reorganize the US federal court system (Judge Ketanji Brown set for SCOTUS bench confirmation by the end of this week! Rascism is involved, of course, because Republican), the opening of West Point Military Academy, the death of Martha Washington, and the discovery of Pallas, asteroid of wisdom, strategy, and the daughter. This probably adds women's issues to the mix, issues you'd think in 2022 we had settled by now.

So in closing, there may be other Cosmic Time Links involved such as:

Horoscope: US Congress March 4, 1789 first session with its Node Node @1Sag44 was conjoined by the May 1, 1802 Syzygy Moon Ascendant-conjunct-Nemesis-Rx which links the 1802 Midterm Elections to Midterms 2022 and first session's 9:00 am LMT Ascendant @14Tau46, was recently transited off and on, as it will be on April 30, 2022, by radical reformer Uranus shown, above, in 6th house.

Additionally, you've noticed that the present-day transit of Uranus @14Taurus also hits US Inaugural Ascendant (Oath of Office, noon January 20th) which, at its very best, fortunately indicates the ability to cope.

Zelenskyy to US Congress: Midpoint Pix

March 16, 2022

As you know, and perhaps watched, this morning at 9:00 am edt (began @9:06 am edt), Ukraine's President Zelenskyy virtually addressed the US Congress and the Ameircan people from an undisclosed location in Kiev, Ukraine. He mentioned, as previously reported, that Ukraine will not be joining NATO but asked that a no-fly zone over Ukraine be established (President Biden says, no, this would mean all-out war between Russia and the US), and for more weapnonry and aide. More military and humanitarian aide he is and will be receiving, and President Biden will speak shortly before noon today, last I heard.

Now today my real life environment is busy but I felt compelled to prepare a page displaying the midpoint pictures and a few astro-notes for you of 9:06 am edt and 9:23 am edt on Capitol Hill, Washington DC. Hopefully, you will be able to read them, below. If not, please enlarge the image or print it.

A stand-out is a midpoint picture with Neptune, planet of the masses and of mass media, which veils the incendiary Mars-Uranus midpoint and suggests potentials for "pushing for change" (M. Munkasey), and "people with bad intentions; overtaxed strength" (R. Ebertin). Sounds correct to me.

Another midpoint picture listed on the chart (apex Jupiter highlighted in green) is Mercury-Neptune = Jupiter: 'harboring great hopes; an actor or poet' (Ebertin). Perhaps we can agree that Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the speaker, is playing the role of thespian Jupiter on such a level. Meanwhile, planet of oration and negotiation, Mercury @10Pis33/37, remains in the 11th house and happily, Mercury is Direct - as is the money bags planet of politicians, corporatists, and broadcasters, generous Jupiter in compassionate Pisces. Thus we see the outpouring of aide and support for the Ukrainain people.

Now as you see, while President Zelenskyy spoke, radical Uranus, planet of war, revolt, and upheaval, arose as the Ascendant morphed from 7Tau35 to 13Tau37, and to me this suggests the Mars-Uranus Conjunction @6Tau44 on US Inauguration Day 2021. Conjunct US Inauguration Ascendant (@14Taurus = Oath of Office), unpredictable, upsetting, inflammatory, and/or unusual or erratic events are and have been the case for the Biden presidency. And with starry Menkar rising, we find that all presidents are expected to 'say what needs to be said'. And yet with Uranus rising, there's a potential for great coping ability!

As for House changes, there are two: Sun in Pisces moved from the hidden 12th house to the 11th house of Groups and Wishes, and Saturn - conjunct Nemesis - moved from 11th house to the more visible 10th house of Public Status and the World Stage. At this moment, I'll venture no speculation on what this entails.

But I will add that the rising position of Uranus in Taurus opposes what is generally considered to be the natal Venus in Scorpio of Mr. Putin and this transit at least partially describes the unexpected reactions and criticisms Putin garnered for his cruel invasion of Ukraine. This transit marks a period when agreements made are broken, and joint ventures are subject to change and separation. Vlad thought a take-over would be easy but the Ukrainian people proved him wrong!

Okay, so I'll hush for now with the hope that the following information may be useful to you, or that it is at least somewhat interesting:

Mark Meadows: Leo Sun-Taurus Moon 'scorched earth'

Under Scrutiny: Mark Meadows

by Jude Cowell

Mark Meadows, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons; on Air Force One, 2020

Republican and Tr*mp operative Mark Meadows was born July 28, 1959 in Verdun, France with an early Leo Sun, Moon in Taurus (for the 24-hour period: 8 to 20 degrees), and Mercury Rx in the range of 17Leo51 to 18Leo18 (conjunct his Uranus @15Leo). An 'army brat', Meadows was raised in Brandon, Florida (an amusing coincidence, I know) and at some point recently or soon-to-come, transit Uranus will conjunct his natal Taurus Moon suggesting a chaotic period in his life during which a different sort of lifestyle is indicated (no cushy digs in the White House, for one). Relationships may terminate under this disruptive influence and his troubles may include rash behavior, nervousness, and insomnia; it's an unstable period for him due in large part to the fact that he hitched his wagon to the unstable, fantasy-spinning con man, Donald Tr*mp.

Then as we read in The Guardian Sunday November 28, 2021, it seems that a Mark Meadows contempt decision is imminent according to Rep. Adam Schiff and the decision may be made this very week by the 1/6 Select Committee. Meanwhile, Meadows has a memoir coming out December 7, 2021 which must be a tribute to his attempt to follow the orders of Tr*mp as his White House Chief of Staff. Now writing a memoir may be an influence of an ongoing transit of Jupiter conjunct his natal Chiron Rx @26Aquarius which suggests a period of letting go of past memories.

And obviously Mr. Meadows was closely involved with the planning and execution of the 1/6 Tr*mp Mob Attack (1:00 pm horoscope linked, below) on the US Capitol Building, Masonic temple that it is, when the Executive Branch tried violently to take control of the Legislative Branch of government. I'd call that an attempted coup d'etat, wouldn't you?

And in esoteric terms based on Charles L'Enfant's original layout of the Federal City, it's a curious thing for it suggests starry Arcturus, Executive symbol (a different approach) attacking Regulus (US Congress) with the royal star's caution of, success if revenge is avoided. Well, for America, the 1/6/21 Tr*mp Mob Attack to stop the peaceful transfer of power to a Joe Biden presidency certainly was forcing a different approach and a majority of We The People were decidedly not amused. Besides, an act of revenge by Tr*mp is exactly what the attack was! His rising Mars in vain Leo opposing US natal Moon in Aquarius was truly being expressed that day.

So as you know, Tea Party Republican Mark Meadows served in Congress as North Carolina's 11th district representative from 2013 to 2020, was a founding member of the way-far-right House Freedom Caucus, and had championed the 2013 Federal Government Shut Down which lasted from October 1 to October 17, 2013. An anti-government type of 'politician', Meadows was also integral in the push to remove John Boehner from his role as Speaker of the House.

Meanwhile, the personality blend of Mark Meadows, Sun Leo-Moon Taurus, is a Fire-Earth 'scorched earth' combination of conscious solar and unconscious Venusian energies indicating a dictatorial, power-seeking personality with a fiery nature and a yen for luxury. His is a splashy sort of aura composed of extravagant tastes which tends toward vanity and reveals a lack of cooperation we now see demonstrated. An idealistic 'motivating fantasy' plays a large part in his motives while fierce loyalty can be shown to those he may idolize upon a pedestal. I leave it to you, dear reader, to decide just who his favorite idol/s might be, past and/or present.

Now on July 16, 2021, I published a bi-wheel of two horoscopes: the 1/6 Tru*mp Mob Attack (1:00 pm est) inner chart, and outer the July 27th 'First 1/6 Hearing 9:30 am' chart which coincidentally fell one day prior to the 2021 birthday of Mark Meadows (July 28th) so as you'll see, transit Jupiter @4AQ+ on July 27th opposed his natal Leo Sun while transit Saturn, then @2AQ+, would soon move on to do the same.

A Jupiter-opposite-natal-Sun transit identifies a period when resources may be depleted, the native overreaches, and can be steered in the wrong direction by advisers. Those with grandiose ideas and wild promises of a successful enterprise are unable to deliver but if a measure of success does follow, it will compromise self-esteem and undermine principles which can result in ego-deflation and wounded pride. Astrologically, Mr. Meadows is shown to be an authoritarian with natal Saturn Rx in very early Capricorn and it's safe to say that the placement's usual conservative principles were compromised in the past in favor of a fanatic, anti-democracy, far-right ideology through which he has attempted to help sabotage the US government in favor of nazi-like, fas*ist-leaning "principles."

As for transit Saturn opposing his natal Sun, his failure to live up to his governmental responsibilities, a major demand of task-master Saturn, have come back to haunt him and his health may be affected by the stress. Folks in positions of authority are challenging him as they question his honesty, integrity, and leadership ability. Whether Mr. Meadows testifies and answers the questions of the 1/6 Select Committee remains to be seen, but really it's doubtful since after all, what can a saboteur against his own country possibly say?

June and September 2021 Mercury Direct and Rx in Air

September 24, 2021: With Mercury having turned Direct on June 22, 2021 @16Gem07:37 (5:59:52 pm edt), then stationing to turn Rx (retrograde) on September 27, 2021 @25Lib28:25 (1:10 am edt), we have the planet of communications, thinking, planning, discussions, messages and memes, teaching and studying, trade and commerce, magic, changing conditions, and all other Mercurial things performing tricks in the mental Air signs of Mercury-ruled Gemini and Venus-ruled Libra. Why, it's even possible that mind-changing may occur and lies may be told!

Additionally significant is the fact that Monday September 27th is the day that the US House of Representatives re-turns from summer vacation with many issues, plans, negotiations, and proposals to re-consider and, if any legislation should occur while Mercury is Rx, to re-read the fine print very closely paying rapt attention to all details. Looking ahead, we should note that Mercury turns Direct again on October 10, 2021 @10Libr08 and must (seemingly from Earth's vantage point) re-trace its previous territory until reaching and surpassing its shadow degree (25Lib28:25) in early November after which Mercurial matters can better progress and proceed.

So! Perhaps the Sabian Symbol of Mercury's stationing degree of "26Libra" (25+ rounded up) will add details to the 'House Returns' picture, and we'll also check out the opposite degree and symbol (26Aries) for it's the Illumination Point that provides additional unconscious or shadow-side information, for the curious. Naturally, 'the eagle' is a favored symbol for America (and for ancient Rome, and for other entities mentions of which are beyond the scope of this post.) Plus, a dove traditionally represents the District of Columbia and, of course, peace.

"26Libra": "An Eagle and a Large White Dove Turning One Into the Other" - "Keyword: ADEPTNESS; positive expression: unusually effective self-discipline; negative expression: unhappy vacillation between ultimate ideals and momentary desires."

Illumination Point "26Aries": "A Man Possessed of More Gifts Than He Can Hold" - "Keyword: EQUIPMENT; positive expression: an uncompromising independence and an inexhaustible drive toward self-discovery; negative expression: an obsession by ideas of no importance." (My italics.)

So that's symbolic info from Marc Edmund Jones in his The Sabian Symbols in Astrology. Now let's also consult Dane Rudhyar's An Astrological Mandala (#ad) for his Keynote analyses:

"26Libra": "The interaction of the spiritual Will and of the Love principle when critical needs arise"; which potency, Rudhyar explains, "finds it difficult at first to adjust to its new world of perception and possibilities of action." And --

"26Aries": "Obsession by potentiality" which, "represents a new, higher approach to the use of polarized forces," and, he adds, "there are many levels of adept-ship" which to me, adds more than a hint of occultism to the Masonic Temple we call the US Capitol Building and its worker bees - whether all of them realize it or not.

And so, for those of us who wish to retain America as a democratic Republic, a "new higher approach" to our nation's current problems caused by the subversive infiltration by bad faith actors would be most welcomed by We The People while skipping over the "ideas of no importance."

Say, remember this from early 2008: Planet Mercury the Messenger gets a fly-by from Mercury?

Republican McCarthy Announces his Select Committee Picks

Tuesday July 20, 2021: Yesterday House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's picks for the Select Committee hearing detailed as Republicans Jim Banks (IN), Jim "You f-- did this" Jordan (OH), former local sheriff Troy Nehls (TX), Kelly Armstrong (ND), and Rodney Davis (IL). Of these, only Reps Armstrong and Davis voted to certify the Electoral College votes on January 6th as was their duty. (Which doesn't necessarily mean that they weren't all onboard or complicit with the former guy's 1/6 coup attempt.)

As previously noted here on Stars Over Washington, the first hearing of the Select Committee (one of those 'Jim Jordan clown shows'? Banks hopes to deflect as much blame as possible onto the Democrats!) is scheduled for Tuesday July 27th 9:30 am edt. Here's a bi-wheel of the 9:30 am edt hearing for those readers with cosmic concerns. The July 27th chart is snugged around a horoscope of the 1/6 'Trump Mob Attack'.

And with the hearing's Pisces Moon conjunct 1/6's Neptune (a planetary combo I've noticed turning up in various charts relating to the Republican Party in recent years), the hearing may spotlight the difficulty in 'separating fiction from reality' which is a common theme today, as you know, that's often exploited by bad faith politicians and their enablers. 'Delusions about the level of popular support for policies' is another potential of Moon-Neptune and although I personally would ascribe this tendency to the fascist-leaning Republicans and their learless feader, a Moon-Neptune influence is more general than specific and lends an unconscious quality of illusion and delusion to the proceedings, so perhaps some information will rise up from The Collective Unconscious. Yet the duo also can indicate "leadership which heeds the opinions and emotional climate of its constituents" (M. Munkasey) so it will be interesting to see if its dreamy influence shows up on July 27th to vanquish or at least muddy every spotlight on fact and truth that may be cast upon regressive Republican radicals and secessionsists.
