A Monetary Echo from Adams' 1787 Letter to Jefferson?

Of Money Lenders, French Debt, and All the Domestic Debt

by Jude Cowell

Sometimes when I find an interesting date in history upon which an event occurred, I like to calculate a horoscope for it to spot check what was being reflected between the Earth and the Cosmos for, As Above, So Below. In lieu of an event's exact hour, noon is usually used, or perhaps midnight or sunrise.

One such event is a letter from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson dated August 25, 1787, sent from Grovenor Square, London. The following is probably the most famous excerpt from this particular missive which is part of a discussion between them concerning such financial topics as "Money Lenders", "the French Debt", and "the Domestic Debt of the Unites States" which "might be transferred to Holland," writes Mr. Adams to Mr. Jefferson. Wonder if Adams' insights may be worth considering in light of our current predicament?

"All the Perplexities, Confusions and Distresses in America arise not from defects in their Constitutions or Confederation, not from a want of Honour or Virtue, So much as from downright Ignorance of the Nature of Coin, Credit and Circulation."

And yes, the sentiment has been expressed by others and in various ways. But this is correspondence between two of our Founding Rosicrucian-Freemason-Illuminatists so what planetary transits or links may have been influencing their discussion via America's natal planets (July 4, 1776) as Adams mentions these monetary topics?

August 25, 1787 London, England noon: Sun 2Vir07 at Midheaven (1Vir38), Moon 24Cap16 in 3rd house of Communications; transiting South Node of the Moon, a separative point, conjoins US natal Venus (money, evaluations) in early Cancer along with our national Jupiter @5Can56; both tr Mars and tr Jupiter are in Gemini and in 8th house of Debt and Credit (at noon) with Jupiter expanding the plans of our national Mars (energy, action, motivation, males) so we know that growth and development are on the menu and that male relationships are favored within fortunate working conditions.

At noon, it's a Mercury Hour, a good time to sit right down and pen someone a letter and with Mercury @25Leo18 and Rx in 9th house of Foreign Lands, we see that this letter is but one of a series on themes that have been discussed before (Rx.) Pluto Rx and Saturn Rx are in Aquarius which marks 1787 as an era of scientific advancement; Mars @19Gem26 shows the date to be within the waning days of an American Mars Return as a new 2-year cycle of activity is in preparation and will begin soon.

As you know, a YOD is a crisis pattern of special tasks and turning points and one is formed here between Mercury, Jupiter, and the Moon which denotes lively women in the environment--perhaps older ladies (Cap)--and many lively exchanges of thought--here, between Adams and Jefferson for the rift in their relationship had yet to occur.

The letter's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series is the initial Total Solar Eclipse (June 15, 1787) in the 5 New South Saros Series and indicates that 'good news, long term benefits, and peak experiences' were enjoyed (Brady.)

A Uranian Surprise?

And with America's 'totem planet', Uranus @28Can04, we see a transit in play whereby America's natal Pluto Rx @27Cap33 is opposed by rebellious genius Uranus which implies that a clash between younger (Uranus) and older (Pluto) generations is in effect and concerns how resources should be handled; also, established sources of political power are disrupted or eliminated entirely thanks to the catalyzing tendencies of The Awakener, Uranus.

With Uranus in Aries now squaring Pluto in Capricorn (off and on until 2015), perhaps that last paragraph resounds a bit through the centuries and reflects Washington's current Capitol Hill antics which they continue to play act for us rather than seriously engaging in the governing we expected.

Curiously, the day's Sun Vir-Moon Cap (Mercury-Saturn) blend is shared natally by financier J.P. Morgan, Sr., and last manifested on November 23, 2003 @1Sag14.

Network: "I'm Mad as Hell" speech (video)

When I found a link in my inbox from Forbidden Knowledge TV to Peter Finch's "Mad as Hell" speech I knew I had to post it to remind me that the presidency of Barack Obama is forever imprinted with the signature of the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction/s of 2009 conjunct US natal Moon (We the People) with the themes of inflation, speculation, fraud, waste, and grand schemes:

Jon Stewart on Sequester Cuts (video) plus, Moon-Saturn

In case you missed this:

Since I heard Rachel Maddow say that President Obama signed the order for sequester cuts 'a little before 9 o'clock' on Friday evening, March 1, 2013, a peek at the horoscope set for the White House shows that POTUS' Neptune in Scorpio is the first of his natal planets to rise. So with the transiting Scorpio Moon and austere Saturn Rx snugged around the chart's 2nd cusp (the house of the National Treasury) we find a midpoint picture created with the president's natal Neptune in the middle...

'Sequester' Moon-Saturn = natal Neptune: feeling inferior; melancholy; depression; anxiety; the sickness of the soul. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Imho, 'sickness of the soul' is what most Americans feel over how our government has turned itself into a corrupt mass of incompetent dissemblers, fraudsters, and purposefully treacherous bad actors bent upon implementing some sort of weird coup of dystopian dimensions.

And though Moon-Saturn contacts indicate such things as depression, melancholy, and anxiety all on their own, they also denote: strategy, direction, and ambition (Tyl.)

For as I suspected and mentioned here last week (and as you've noticed in the news), Republicans have cooked up a ploy to stop sequester cuts to what they care about such as the military budget--even adding $2 billion to it!--while keeping the domestic sequester cuts which will push vulnerable Americans out onto the streets, deny formula to hungry infants, let go teachers and other civil workers, furlough federal employees--in other words, place austerity measures upon the backs of those of our citizens disdained by the arrogant GOP. It looks as if Ayn Rand's cruel theories are in full play and brought to us by anti-social, conscience-free psychopaths who choose to govern ineptly in our nation's Capitol Building, that Masonic temple on a hill in Washington DC.

Why, even the news that billionaires such as Warren Buffet and George Soros have been "quietly" dumping millions of shares of US stocks in companies such as Johnson & Johnson follows the narrative of Rand's Atlas Shrugged as corporatists desert our nation! Beware the Fed printing funny money (Jupiter-Neptune = inflation) and the not-since-2007 DOW Jones average closing at a record high as it did today. And I was so hoping for good news for America's upcoming Jupiter Return on July 22, 2013...more on that later.

Financial Coup d'Etat & How to Overcome It (video)

With the financial harvesting of the world in high gear, here's investment adviser and former Bush Sr administration official Catherine Austin Fitts speaking on The Financial Coup d'Etat and How to Overcome It--for it's time to ask, Who's doing this and where's the money going?

"There is no economic reason for poverty." - C. A. Fitts

You'll find more info from the lady herself at The Solari Report blog.


Astrologically I never forget America's natal Jupiter at '6 Cancer' with its very descriptive Sabian Symbol which points, not as much toward the average US worker, but to banking titans, the foreign investors (corporations and monarchs) who helped set up our nation and those who continue to direct it, and toward the Washington politicians whose campaigns and entire careers they bankroll so liberally in order to keep the harvester's wheels greased:

Debt-free America Jan 8, 1835 v Debts Galore Nov 21, 2011

Under the anti-central bank policy of President Andrew Jackson, America paid off the national debt and was considered debt-free in January 1835.

Some sources use 'January 1' and some 'January 8' 1835 as the one day our nation was free of debt; however, some loans were outstanding but could have been paid if called for. Other sources say that America's debt freedom period lasted longer than just one day--perhaps for about a year. Central banks orchestrated the Panic of 1837 in retaliation for America's refusal to play their usury interest rate game so naturally Jackson's opponents blamed him--and fooled some of the people into blaming him--for the dire financial conditions in the US caused by the 1837 crash.

This was Big Banking's usual underhanded tactics, as we've come to know them all too well since 2008, if not before.

Given tonight's whimpering deadline for the Super Committee's deficit homework to be turned in with spending cuts and revenue identified, most people suspect that the debt dog already wolfed it down.

Astrology: January 1835 v November 2011

A few interesting time links exist between January 8, 1835 and the Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 such as 1835's Jupiter 2Gem12 Rx, opposed by the 'Super Committee eclipse'. As you know, Jupiter now travels in retrograde condition in early Taurus, a practical earth sign of Money and Intolerance. The outcome of the Super Committee's work was bound to be complicated if not sabotaged by a Rx Jupiter--was the committee set up to fail as many people believe?

Jupiter's Direct Station on December 25, 2011 has been cited here as the very earliest date that money issues might proceed more favorably though Jupiter's passing its shadow degree (where Mr. Moneybags turned Rx on August 30, 2011 @ 10Tau21) is more likely yet 10Tau21 won't be reached by Jupiter until the evening of March 17, 2012, St. Patrick's Day.

Now in Mundane Astrology Jupiter also relates to Politics and to the Grand Old Party in particular and obviously the 2012 campaign will be in full swing by March 2012 if the varmints of Washington haven't crashed our nation into smithereens by then. Seems as though some are working hard at it!

The Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (PE) in which January 8, 1835 and our debt-free condition fell: the 17 South which last manifested in 1997; next occurrence is in 2015. Its flavor consists of good news and success in relationships and group projects. (Brady.)

On a side note, there are quite a few illustrious people listed in my notes who share 17S as their PE, born in various years, of course: Princess Diana, Ayn Rand, Adolf Hitler, Heath Ledger, Rachel Carson, Tim Roth, Barbara Bush, and Newt Gingrich. Plus, Iran (April 1, 1979 3:00 pm IRDT Tehran.)

A couple more factors about the January 8, 1835 horoscope:

1. testy Mars, always very touchy in Cancer, is @ 9Can13 and Rx, the precise degree of the karma-infused July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 (America's "birthday 2011 eclipse") which brought us the August 2011 Debt-Default Political Theater on Capitol Hill from whence the 'Super' Committee was spawned for political can-kicking purposes. As you know, astrological Mars can be an irritable, hot-headed trigger when he desires to be for the god of war is often frustrated when in Moon-ruled Cancer, sign of America's Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury Rx (July 4, 1776.)

2. there's a dynamic T-Square configuration which creates a word picture:

Mercury/Mars = Pluto *11Ari: a sharp analyst; suffering heavy attacks or assaults. (Ebertin.)

1835's Pluto conjoined the natal Venus of President Jackson so he was in the midst of a Pluto to natal Venus transit, a time when greater power and influence are sought, personal relationships may enhance one's status, power struggled ensue, and bankruptcy may be a consideration.

Turns out, in 1835 Andrew Jackson avoided massive debt of the sort that leads to bankruptcy for our nation but look what Washington politicians have been up to the last several years (such as wars fought on credit cards, Bush tax cuts for millionaires, unfunded mandates, etc) from which the US is already, some say, bankrupt. Embezzling and heisting from the US Treasury has much to do with our nation's weakened financial condition, too, imho.

Well, after President Andrew Jackson paid the last installment on our national debt which he proclaimed on January 8, 1835, his goal to keep the central banking system from taking over our finances (and hence, the governance) of the United States was satisfied for a little while.

However, as is said to be the case with US presidents who mess with the massive profits that central banks make from loaning large sums to governments, an assassination attempt was made on the life of President Jackson January 30, 1835, the first-ever attempt on a US president's life which fulfills a potential of the 'suffering heavy attacks or assaults' midpoint picture mentioned above.

But mind-of-his-own President Jackson was definitely not the last.

How I wish the guns pointed at Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy had misfired as well, don't you?


Another eclipse of the lunar variety manifests before the end of 2011 which eclipses US natal Mars in Gemini so it relates in part to US troops returning home from Middle East deployment by the end of December, we're told. View the horoscope of the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11 set for Washington DC, if you dare.

*'11Aries' = "The President of the Country"...IDEALIZATION.

The Fed, B of A, JP Morgan put US taxpayers on EU's hook

Are US Taxpayers EU Banks' Sugar Daddies?

by Jude Cowell

Don't spew your cereal but it has been revealed that our tricky old Federal Reserve Bank has put US taxpayers on the hook--in a word, responsible--for the financial fall out if European banks fail!

In the brew are two of our usual criminal suspects who got no regulatory approval for this scheme--Bank of America and J. P. Morgan. Meanwhile, the Fed and the FDIC are said to be tussling (my word) over whether the sneaky plan is "sound"!

Considering how much payback transnational bankers such as the House of Rothschild expect from America and her own debts, I can assure them that there is no 'soundness' involved but there is an abundant of injustice, fraud, and corruption.

And perhaps there is an agenda peeking out: to collapse the global economy for their own purposes of 'rebuilding anew upon ruins' (aka, a NWO, or 'one-world-government'.) The plutonians believe that we must be forced to see that nation-states simply cannot 'handle' the massive size of the world's problems--financial, environmental, social, and political--so, they think, we'll eventually plead for a new system of an illuminized design.

Through the decades they've set up a 'global economy' so it can be knocked down on their timetable--making a worldwide take-over possible. My hope is that the usual 'criminals are stupid' factor will gum up their 'Great Plan' before they do much more damage! Of course, normal people standing up to global banking corruption is an absolute must more than ever.

In Astrology, there is a descriptive midpoint picture to watch for in transits concerning this global take-over topic is:

*Saturn/Pluto = Uranus: brutal efforts to start a new order; an attack, regardless of potential losses. (Tyl.)

Well, click above to read The Daily Bail for there's no telling what anyone's total exposure is since Wall Street successfully lobbied during the passage of the watered-down Dodd-Frank bill so that there is no central exchange to keep track of net derivative exposure.

This massive scheme explains Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner's recent hopping around Europe pleading with EU leaders to agree to bailout their own banks! Wonder why they have to be pleaded with? Germany's recalcitrance? The rich don't want to help out poorer nations?

Or...does the scheme also explain why EU leaders can't--or refuse to--come to a financial agreement? Let US taxpayers do it!

News flash for the EU: in America, we can barely pay our teachers, firefighters, and policemen. But of course, in America, banks are people, too.
Yes! I heard this morning that Libya's president-on-the-run Qaddafi was killed at dawn Thursday but have no time in today's schedule for more blogging. So I point you to the excellent coverage on this and other important topics at Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman.

*Of course, the US directly 'met' the cruel desires of the Saturn/Pluto pair when the two planets opposed one another on the morning of the 9/11/01 attacks, an event and a planetary signature that mark forever the illegal presidency of George W. Bush (may he be arrested in Canada soon for his torturing interests. Bill Clinton will be there, too--two birds with one stone?)

Why "Tinkering w the corporate state" won't work (OWS)

Even so-called liberals are quaking from the increase in Occupy Wall Street protests here and abroad and Chris Hedges asserts that, "Tinkering with the corporate state will not work."

Allow Mr. Hedges to paint the picture for you more clearly than I ever could as the 'Too Big To Fail' 99% movement of dissent sweeps across the globe, disgruntling Pluto/Chiron types as they hunker down in their oligarchic ivory towers and state-of-the-art bunkers, poor things.

Yes, their disenfranchising and oppresssion of the 99% of us are being called to account at last and in the biggest way possible: peacefully and righteously.

A Movement Too Big To Fail by Chris Hedges.

The tyranny of plutocracy must end as transiting Pluto plows slowly through Saturn-ruled Capricorn, transforming structures, institutions, and governments as it approaches America's natal Pluto (27Cap33 Rx) for our first-ever Pluto Return/s 3x in year 2022.

You know the applicable equation--it's easy and historically accurate:

Corporatism + Statism = Fascism.

The world didn't approve of fascism and fascists before and we certainly Do Not Like Them Now.

Also see: Plutocracy, the true face of America. Why, if if weren't for the Bill of Rights all we'd have for a "freedom document" in the US is a plutocracy-protecting Constitution.

But that's a blog fuss for a another day.

Uranus to US 4th house as Anonymous says, Bankers Are the Problem (video)

So the first time I saw the film V is For Vendetta in 2006, I loved its message, its history lesson, and its insouciance. Now it's 2011 and members of the activist hacking group Anonymous have taken to wearing the oddly affecting mask from that film as in the following video.

But don't fret over the fellow's mask for it's global bankers who are at the bottom of the world's tragedies and They are the scary Anonymous says, The Bankers Are The Problem:

As it turns out, disruptive Uranus moving into America's 4th house of Domestic Scene and Homeland since 2010 and squaring powerful string-puller Pluto has brought a new era of public activism with radical, populist, grass roots, anti-corporate Uranian ideas for how our world can be rather than what plutocratic one-world-government promoters have told us it must be.

But the illuminized globalists are wrong.

So please wake up your friends and tell them the news! After all, The 5th of November rolls round again in about 3 weeks...


Scroll down the sidebar if you wish a video reminder of Bush Sr's 20-year-old freaky shout-outs for a 'New World Order' and if you type those words into the sidebar Search Field, you'll find many posts on that and similar topics, some containing quotes from public, corporate, and secret society figures touting--and revealing their own culpability--in their satanic take-over plan.

Love of money is the root of all evil. And money is what all global bankers and their minions dearly love. Mankind? Not so much.

Info Wars's Alex Jones says that Republican nom candidate for 2012, Herman Cain (once an agent for the Kansas City Federal Reserve), is backed by the (Skull & Bones) Pillsbury family! Given Mr. Cain's demonstrated globalist views, the connection doesn't surprise me one bit.

Guess that makes Herman Cain a real-life 'Dough Boy'!


UPDATE 12 noon edt: mundane astrologer Ed Kohout has alerted me to an article detailing who is paying NYC policemen to pepper spray Occupy Wall Street protesters in their faces. My fret is that more brutal tactics against peaceful demonstrators are planned by the corporate titans who run the US government.

As you know, the strong-arming of dissenting US citizens is happening on President Obama's watch-- and many if not all of those pepper sprayed for wanting improvements in America probably voted for him!

Read more here. Thanks, Ed! jc

Uranus conjunct Neptune, the Illuminati-NWO pair that last met during the Age of Reason in mid-Sagittarius, conjoined three times in 1993--at '18Cap' = POLITICAL POWER...negative manifestation: "smug or strong-armed paternalism."

And here we are.

Occupy Wall Street live video w Aries Full Moon chart of 10.11.11

Monday October 10, 2011: This week the US Congress gavels in on Tuesday October 11, and the president's jobs bill may be taken up--not passed, for that would make too much sense--but 'taken up' on Capitol Hill with President Obama seen by some as pushing his financial plan as bank protests grow.

If the jobs bill will bring relief to the 99%, let him push! And let the politically minded GOP get out of the way.

Meanwhile, peaceful Occupiers in Washington DC are on shaky ground with their permit expiring today and no one seems to know what will happen to protesting Americans who are also speaking out against US wars which were begun with falsehoods and have gone on for way too long.

Today protests against America's corrupt capitalist system begin their 4th week on Wall Street (live video below) as other cities across the country join in including Kansas City where the people know what you and I know that, Corporations Are Not People.

The Light of an Aries Moon with a Jupiter/Pluto Midpoint

A Full Moon @ 18Ari24 on October 11, 2011 represents the culmination or fulfillment phase of something begun at the last New Moon of September 27, 2011 @ 4Lib00 (horoscope shown) which emphasized the ongoing opposition of string-puller Pluto to US natal Jupiter 5Can56.

(During the Great Depression, transiting Pluto conjoined America's planets in Cancer; now Mr. Underworld has changed his tune and opposes our Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and eventually our Mercury Rx, too, as efforts continue to dismantle and dissolve FDR's New Deal programs. Apparently global bankers such as the Houses of Rockefeller and Rothschild were on board with the Roosevelt presidency's financial policies but now they're working hard to harvest the last decades' abundance away from the American people--and so far succeeding too well.)

The Occupy Wall Street protests actually began on Sept 17--ten days earlier than the September New Moon. Astrologer Lynn Hayes has written an excellent article on the movement's genesis which she calls the Beginning of Uranus/Pluto in the US, a reference to the current Uranus/Pluto square in their cycle which issued from their Great Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s, a time of social upheaval and the anti-war and civil rights protests of my generation.

The 1960s mid-Virgo Uranus/Pluto conjunction may be found in the 4th house (Foundation; Basis of the Matter) of the Full Moon horoscope you see below.

Click to enlarge the chart to read a few notes which won't be covered in this text.

ASC 29Gem39 (29, a critical/crisis degree) makes 5th house Mercury 27Lib49 the chart-ruler; Hour: Sun 18Lib24, in its Fall in Libra and conjunct US Sec Mars Rx--'19Lib' = "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding (peep-eye, Wall Street!) Sun and Saturn are about to hook-up, a time of serious issues, hard work, and a call for responsibility for the culpable; Saturn opposing the Full Moon shows depression of the people, but can also indicate ambition and strategy being employed.

The speculator/wastrel/grand-schemes pair, Jupiter and Neptune, rule the MC through Pisces; restrictive Saturn rules 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, Credit, and Transformation, with the degree of the 8th cusp 19Cap40 implicating the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune (1993), the Illuminati/Enlightenment/NWO pair of energies.

In 5th house of Gambling and Risk-Taking, evaluating Venus 3Sco32 conjoins US *Sec Saturn Rx indicating the American people's (Aries Moon = 'I Am the People') fed-up condition (Full Moon opposition) and dissatisfaction with America's imperial wars (Sec Mars Rx) being waged abroad and the financial embezzlement, loss, and system-gaming they have engendered while lawmakers tell us US coffers are bare and domestic budgets must be cut (Venus/Saturn) with an austere hatchet when it comes to the needs of the American people.

How Things Proceed: chart-ruler Mercury applies to these planets and ASC:

1. trine Neptune 28AQ22 Rx (0A33: cold logic won't intrude upon inspiration; instincts rule; intuition--or Twitter--leads us to the right place at the right time.)

2. trine ASC (1A50: knows limits; capitalizes on talents and abilities; seeks approval.)

3. trine Chiron 1Pis05 Rx (3A16: wise old souls seek healing--Clow.)

4. conjunct Venus 3Sco32 (5A43: discussion of common goals with partners or allies; advice or information available which concern legal matters, joint ventures, or contracts.)

Not bad, as applying aspects go! Plus, Mercury rules young people, trade, commerce, oration, slogans, plans, negotiations, and many other mercurial things.

Mercury also rules the Full Moon's 4th house of Real Estate and Domestic Scene, and the president's natal Pluto in Virgo. (I refer to Mr. Obama as 'president', and not to Speaker of the House Mr. Boehner who seems confused on the issue at times.)

As you see, rising in first house is the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 which falls within our nation's line-up of Cancerian planets--and precisely between our national Sun and Jupiter, a factor you and I knew would be trouble.

President Obama's natal, quixotic Chiron/Pluto opposition is in full view (MC/IC) and is notated upon the chart along with a T-Square (Pluto/ASC = Uranus in Aries ( = Utopians and other anarchists; Uranus also is The Awakener, as mentioned in protesters' chants) so we have a picture of extraordinary incidents and upsets, constant anxiety and restlessness, and potential changes of environment.

Pluto/Chiron = plutocracy; oppression; disenfranchisement; primal violence; racism and other -isms and agents of oppression.

A Grand Trine which includes North Node (NN = encounters; meetings; future direction; publicity) ropes in the October 11th Full Moon along with a feisty Leonine Mars so that three pictures are formed:

1. Moon/Mars = NN indicates vigorous cooperation with others, and women as associates.

2. Moon/NN = Mars shows energetic advocacy of unions or associations and vigorous teamwork (teamsters? jc)

3. Mars/NN = Moon brings in more feminine participation along with 'soul contact' vibes present within enterprises of mutually sympathetic people.

You may wish to click and view the participants in a rather involved Kite pattern with ASC as the Kite's 'tail', and Fixed Stars Polaris ('to show the way') and Betelgeuse ('success which is not blocked') rising and directing the Kite's high-flying inspirations and a prognosis for success.

Of note to current financial topics and other large endeavors is a Minor Grand Trine (highlighted in pink) if one includes Midheaven (MC = Goals; Aspirations), an angular point where Jupiter/Pluto (in trine) may express the pair's big banker/wheeler dealer energies. This pattern creates a significant midpoint picture:

Jupiter/Pluto = MC: industriousness; ambition; advantages in one's occupation; advancement and promotion; great good luck. (Ebertin.)

Jupiter continues his delaying Rx phase in Taurus, a money sign with a shadow side that includes greed and intolerance.

Well, moneybags Jupiter (Republicans) and manipulative Pluto (the dragon guarding the world's hidden riches, and robbing us all) are certainly simpatico (trine) this week and so far are quite successful in their Make Obama And America Fail campaign...their midpoint sits upon the Full Moon's Goal Point (MC.) But this means that Jupiter/Pluto also sits upon President Obama's natal Chiron in Pisces--and affects goals with the wounding--or talent--that Chiron, The Key, always provides.


Note: when protesting, Beware Agent Provocateurs!

And if you dare, check out the 'peculiar turn of events' potential in the horoscope of the upcoming Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37, a date perfectly within range of describing the recommendations from the 'Super Congress' (aka, 'Super Committee') which are due on November 23, 2011.

Global Revolution link to Livestream of Occupy Wall Street protests

This Global Revolution link will take you to a Livestream video of the Occupy Wall Street protests which are not just for Manhattan anymore as other US cities join in v corporate elite banksters and a word, thieves.

Yes, the ongoing planetary Cardinal Grand Cross of revolt and upheaval and its attendant on-again-off-again T-Squares of blockage and frustration are really revving up the populace to demonstrate for truth, justice, and civil rights in earnest now--even in our usually placid America.

And astrological Pluto (favorite planet of wealthy plutocrats whether they know it or not) is at the base of the blockages, injustices, and thieving as Mr. Underworld acts from status quo Capricorn.

John Adams defines Revolution; America's Saturn/Neptune Revisited

Wall Street Tyranny, Revolution Defined, Saturn/Neptune, and a Sabian Symbol for the Ages

by Jude Cowell

From perpetual wars of imperialism to Wall Street bankers and global elites crashing the US economy, the 'New Millennium' has brought not the so-called "New Age" of skipping about with flowers in our hair, but dire conditions and chaos purposefully created by what seems to be a select few of unelected, ivory towered holier-than-thous signified in mundane astrology charts by Pluto.

And when combined with other planets, the branches of plutonians are even more closely described and identified--ex: Jupiter/Pluto = the Fed, the World Bank or bankers, the IMF, the WTO, those who mount large scale projects--even as the Vatican (Pluto = the pope; Jupiter = the hierophant, priest) and other bigwig religious 'leaders' who skulk the halls of earthly power.

Now if you've read Stars Over Washington before, you know that I often fuss about plutonian topics while posting articles, videos, and horoscopes blended with my own personal comments and analyses on Politics, Washington DC, corruption, the US Congress, esoteric subjects (ex: Max Igan videos), Astrology, Freemason/Illuminati info, and other topics that interest or annoy me--all on behalf of my country, America--a nation whose sovereignty I'd prefer to see continued, thanks. (My former residence of Washington DC and the perfidies of the US Congress and White Lodge--er, House, notwithstanding.)

Well, it is my blog, right? And no other writers lounge about SO'W unless noted with credit for their work.

So today I'm feeling Adams-y/Jefferson-y, even though they were Freemasons, which was the organization to join in their day if you wanted to get ahead in life and business. Actually, it's much the same in 2011, isn't it? Perhaps the worm entered the American apple when Weishaupt's Illuminati gained a hoof-hold with Jefferson, Paine, and others, and Rosicrucianism (Franklin, and probably Jefferson) blended into the secretive government mix as well from our nation's earliest days. Infiltration is the Illuminati's middle name--and the CFR has used infiltration of government institutions as a tactic since the secretive organization's inception, as have others of a similar take-over persuasion.

There May Be Clues in America's Natal Horoscope

US natal Saturn (14Lib48) = government; US natal Neptune (22Vir25) = hidden, secret, invisible. On July 4, 1776, the two planets were a mere 22 degrees 23 minutes apart, though the Founders were assumed to be unaware of Neptune's existence. Now that has always fascinated me since we as astrologers can glean things about the US horoscope which they (astrologers as they were) could not have known we would know...same with Pluto, though revolutionary, disruptive Uranus, so linked to America's principles and behavior, was discovered in their time--in 1781, between the American and the French Revolutions, and describing both.

And if we use the Sibly version of the US chart (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA), we find that its Midheaven (Goal; Aspiration; Public Standing or Status) = 00Lib53--a mere 3 degrees 36 minutes from our natal Saturn/Neptune midpoint. This suggests (to my sleuthing, conspiratorial mind) that 3 years 5 or 6 months after July 4, 1776, a goal (MC) was effected concerning an invisible, hidden, or secret government (Saturn/Neptune)--was a satanic Illuminati hoof-hold gained?

This takes us to December 1779-- January 1780 and is worth a look into historical events during that time period--though machinations of secret societies will not be found in history written by The Establishment (Saturn!) A book such as Nicholas Hagger's The Secret History of the West is a better source and it is extensively researched, plus, you may know of other books or websites that reveal more than the usual line on American history. Funny how the usual sources tend to totally leave out which secret society influenced whom and instigated which event!

In case you're wondering, the midpoint picture created in progressions during that time frame by America's 9th house Neptune and 10th house Saturn is:

Saturn/Neptune = MC: wavering between materialistic and idealistic inclinations; a peculiar character (or characters); losing courage quickly; emotional suffering. (Ebertin.) (Other midpoint sources reveal more, of course, but I don't have them with me today and won't until next week.) As always, any, all, or none may apply.

Yes, the combo of Saturn/Neptune may bring loss and grief and unfortunately, we don't have to look far afield to find that in 2011, do we? Especially since transiting Saturn brought 'grim reality' to US natal Neptune a year or so ago--with a simultaneous transit of dissolving Neptune to US natal Moon (we-the-people) which is still within orb in late Aquarius, and brought home foreclosures, refugeeism, unstable social conditions, fraud, loss, and grand schemes that seldom if ever pan out.

Quite a double blow to the people's hopes and dreams of beneficial change a la the Obama administration! Maybe that's part of why the GOP ran an old man and a wild woman against him--they wanted to sit out these transits! And one astrologer on the Republican payroll would have easily seen both transits coming from several decades away. (That's the venerable art and science of Astrology--bringing to the table the element of Time which no other system for analysis can.)

Now here's a quote from our 3rd president, Thomas Jefferson, which in 2011 may be applied to the steady drip drip of many decades if not centuries as certain groups attempt to overthrow democracy and collapse America (financially, politically, and socially) so that 'global government' (another indication of Saturn/Neptune involvement since staid Saturn must rule, and secretive Neptune must merge) may be finally implemented according to a totalitarian template as promoted by satanists like Adam Weishaupt whose Illuminati symbols decorate America's Great Seal and paper currency:

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers (administrators) too plainly proves a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery." -Thomas Jefferson

And concerning the current societal topic in the news of "is it time for revolution in America?", here is a brief, familiar excerpt from one of the letters sent from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, dated August 24, 1815 (yet we know that the two Founders were well aware that posterity would read their sentiments--after years of not speaking, the letters gave them a chance to re-envision their past actions and justify their original intentions! Some say that Adams was against Illuminati influence in America, while Jefferson was for it which may have been at the base of the break in their earlier friendship):

"What do we mean by Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 1760--1775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington."

Now 2012 Cometh

Is it possible that The Awakening of 2012, if indeed it occurs, relates to a similar "revolution in the minds of the people"? Well, astrologers have been tracking the ongoing Cardinal Grand Cross of planets which began in Spring 2010 with its generational squares between Saturn/Pluto, and Uranus/Pluto, for example, with both combinations bringing frustration, hardship, cruelty, and revolt across the face of the planet--and now in America (ex: Occupy Wall Street protests in NYC and elsewhere.)

Then there is a Sabian Symbol that obviously applies to our topic: '30 Cancer' = "A Daughter of the American Revolution" which Dane Rudhyar explains as:

"Keynote: The prestige and conservatism of a long-maintained heritage.

Here we have a symbol of the proud preservation of socio-cultural values in tradition. After several generations the ancestor who was perhaps a violent revolutionist or rabble-rouser--or even a fugitive from justice--acquires a halo of respectability. fThe tradition that once was born of revolution now extols "law and order", attempting to suppress any new forms of the revolutionary spirit."

(This symbol refers) "...mainly to the consolidation and concretization of life urges within a stable form of organization. In many instances the scenes presented picture social activities or events, yet at this stage it is the individual person and the problems attendant upon his development that are primarily considered."

('30Can' is) " example of what occurs when the individual chooses a path which totally embodies and glorifies tradition, a past which ends in a GLORIFICATION OF THE PAST."

Might it be possible to gage a time frame in which another of what John Adams described as a "revolution in the minds of the people" might have begun?

Well, if I had to hazard an astrological guess, an obvious choice of time frames would have to be the Solar Eclipse of July 22, 2009 @ a critical-crisis degree of 29Can27--rounded up, it's the DAR degree of '30 Cancer'. This points to the extreme opposition of the GOP and the Tea Party (and their secretive backers) to the presidency and person of Barack Obama which is ongoing, and if anything, more virulent as his term goes on.

You may wish to click to view the July 2009 Eclipse horoscope which contains many correlations to current transits and to US natal placements--even Inaugural Moon 2009 shows up. Then click to enlarge the chart and read additional notes--you'll see that Venus is @ 18Gem, the Venus Transit degree that occurred during the G-20 Summit on Sea Island, Georgia in June 2004--and it looks as if Putin will be re-joining the old gang of bosses again soon as Russia's president deja-vu.

John Adams A-Rollin' in His Grave

No, the 'mental revolution' and physical revolts are not only for opposing President Obama (the black fellow inhabiting the White House) as evidenced by the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011 and push backs against austerity measures in Wisconsin and elsewhere--with more revolts to come. For the July 2009 eclipse (11 South Saros Series) is the "systems fail, new methods are needed" eclipse which was part of the bankster-induced financial crisis as the president instituted initiatives to "reform" Wall Street which kinda-sorta helped Main Street but has done little to create jobs for we-the-people.

For jobs creation, Mr. Obama's initiatives need the financial and corporate industries to cooperate with the program in a communal spirit but as we've seen, they're not about to do that unless and until they are made to pay taxes to help support this nation. And most corporations don't seem at all interested in preserving American traditions, do they?

For more on similar themes such as 2012 and secretive, strange political bedfellows, try the Venus Occultation of June 5, 2012, another marker of change in the way modern America does things and which will probably not 'glorify past traditions' but toss them over on behalf of a new system.

Charles Koch to Economist Hayek: "Use Social Security"!

Well, the following article is so fascinating, its link just had to be posted here to read any time I start to forget what total hypocrites all anti-social-program conservatives are whether they call themselves Republican, Libertarian, Tea Party, or what-have-you--even *DINOs.

Letters have been outed from 1973 with Charles Koch (a Koch Industries brother and Tea Party backer) writing to famed laissez-faire economist Friedrich Hayek encouraging him to "use Social Security to support his medical needs. Hayek had taught in the US and paid into our SS system for ten years so Koch assured him he was entitled to what Koch and his ilk now like to call an "entitlement program."

You see, the professor had had some gall bladder surgery in Austria and feared "falling ill away from home" if he returned to the US to pontificate his economic theories.

But not to fear! For America's excellent Social Security insurance program came to Hayek's rescue!!

Personally, I think America's so-called "Ponzi scheme" should have been given a satin cape years ago. Besides--a Ponzi scheme isn't much of a Ponzi scheme unless and until it's stopped, at which time it collapses from its own weight--precisely the aim of the GOP and those such as the Koch Brothers who are determined that Wall Street get its greedy claws on the money while crashing our nation in the process.

And then, who can forget those halcyon days of 'President' George Bush schlepping round the country (on the tax payers' dime) peddling his disengenuous sales pitch about privatizing Social Security? Yet alas, his thin arguments didn't go over very well, did they? And though they've been fairly well shushed on the matter for now, GOP schemers continue to parrot the "SS is bankrupt" slogan whenever they feel so moved.

Now as you know, Dubya considers not privatizing the program that has made such a difference in millions of American lives (and in the lives of the odd foreigner, as we learn above) to be the "biggest failure" of his presidency--not invading the Holy Land, not bombing women and children, nor cynically sending US troops overseas to grab and guard US oil interests and fatten power elite portfolios--not even dooming America and the world to the misery of perpetual war--but to not handing SS monies on a golden platter to his Wall Street backers as the bankers who run the US government insisted.

So here's the Worst President in US History now, if you can stomach a re-listen of his attempt to sell us bank bailouts and TARP. But what he's actually doing is summing up the financials of his disastrous 8-year presidency::

Funny that the much-touted and obsessive conservative fear of "socialism" from the Obama administration ignores a key astrological factor concerning George Bush's natal chart which has always seemed very telling to me about Bush's hidden character--the Sabian Symbol (8 Leo) for his natal Ascendant (his nibs himself) is: "A Bolshevik Propagandist."

Or, as Dane Rudhyar gives the degree--and to me it seems to apply perfectly to Bush's 'Privatize SS You Suckers' Tour:

"A Communist Activist Spreading His Revolutionary Ideals"...

'Keynote: The emotional and ideological attempt to return to a state of non-differentiation and chaos as a prelude to a new type of order.'

(That would be Poppy Bush's 'New World Order' heralded by his Desert Storm invasion.)

Rudhyar expands on 8 Leo: "...ideally it could show how the vision of a cosmic order might heal the potential conflict between an obsolete Establishment and its youthful challengers. But reality today presents a more cruel picture of CATABOLIC ACTION.

...and one witnesses a struggle for personal and dictatorial power."

I'm not kidding--you can't make this stuff up!


*Democrats In Name Only, and close cousins of RINOs.

The first Symbol is from Marc Edmund Jones' The Sabian Symbols in Astrology; Rudhyar's book, An Astrological Mandala.

Why Obama, the GOP, and the US Gov won't lift a finger to help our nation stay a nation

So Many Questions, One Big Fat Answer

by Jude Cowell

Why doesn't President Obama get tough with Republicans? Why aren't Wall Street banksters in prison? Why are so few companies hiring? Why is the Supreme Court acting like royal monarchists? Why can't foreclosed home mortgages be redeemed and families kept in their homes? Why are our war vets sleeping under bridges? And why did the dog bark at midnight?

The people's list of puzzling questions seems endless and most Americans feel that little of consequence has been or is being done to really improve our financial condition and jobs market since Financial Collapse 2008 which blew up officially on September 15, 2008: because no one believable is answering them.

If you want a sincere answer, New Dawn Magazine has published perhaps the best explanation of the long-devised goal of a World Government that I've yet to find, and perhaps you may agree.

Twelve Triggers Driving Mankind Towards World Government lays things out in easy-reading detail including what's going on now with a fracturing European Union (as Nostradamus predicted) and Germany's stubborn refusal to provide financial aid to the EU's poorer nations (which are in process of being enveloped while Middle Eastern 'rogue nations' have been poised to take their falls, too. Future puppets wait in the wings.)

History a Process

If you were around in the late 1990s, perhaps you noticed that the Soviet Bloc 'fell' just as the EU was being implemented (1999) and Putin became the Soviet darling. Although it was murky at the start, the EU now shows itself to be a proto-World Government struggling--or dramatizing--their own demise as its Nation-States mull over returning to their traditional currencies...all part of the World Government script.

Now if you've read this blog before this moment, you've noted my use of the term 'New World Order' ('NWO') or 'one-world-government' which are all the same entity and agenda...World Government. Very few politicians on the public stage are not part of the agenda though they only know the part of the plan in which they collude--the old 'need to know' ploy is used because it works. The more secretly they can act, the more efficiently things go--for the manipulators, that is.

World Capitals Will Be...Transformed

Brussels, Luxembourg, Frankfort, Strasbourg, Washington DC (Military center, of course), London, Rome, Jerusalem--all figure into the dissolution of the Nation-State now in progress. And if you don't know this, perhaps you can feel it: their plan is that the USA must be collapsed because no one country can be allowed power concentrated in one place when dispersed, de-centralized power is what the Global Power Elite have envisioned for centuries, such good little 'Utopians' all.

Lurking Somewhere in Astrology...

So with transit Uranus now in Mars-ruled Aries until 2018/19, the revolutionary Utopians have plenty of time in which to fully implement their agenda of world domination with other planets (actors) and dynamic planetary patterns aiding and abetting by aspect, off and on by transit.

In fact, if you use the 'Sibly' version of America's *natal horoscope with its 00Ari53 IC (4th cusp of Home, Domestic Scene, Homeland; AP = a World Point of Manifestation), Utopians have entered the Foundation of our national structure more deeply than since the last time Uranus reached Aries Point (AP) in 1927/28 (see below for dates and a few events that may seem similar to today's happenings. Pluto was in the sign opposite to its current one, Capricorn indicating that plutonian masters were With America then--conjoining, not challenging our natal Venus, Sun, Jupiter trio in Cancer--but now wealthy stealthy Pluto opposes the US trio. Plus, Mr. Organized Crime is within orb of conjoining Britain's natal Sun--and London is the intended Financial center of the World Government.)

Yes, quirky, explosive, political operative Uranus in US natal 4th house--which can act earlier or later than the transit promises--introduces unstable conditions, temporary arrangements, and circumstances over which people who once did, have no control. Unanticipated events and unusually odd people may appear as independence concerns vie with traditional responsibilities. Things begin and end abruptly and family ties change, often due to unexpected crises. Chaos is on the Uranian menu, sorry to say, and strikes, riots, and protests are on the upswing.

If this 4th house info sounds familiar to you, you may have just verified the correct American natal horoscope! But be that as it may, the above linked article is a must-read for those who wish a fuller understanding for Why President Obama and others are not 'helping' our financial circumstances any more efficiently or quickly than heretofore.

Also implicated are the Uranian weirdos who used the word "default" during the staged 'debt ceiling-default crisis' we were 'treated' to in July--morning, noon, and night until August 2, 2011 when the staged 'crisis' was allegedly 'averted' (Whew! we were expected to say in trembling unison as the media beat its importance into our noggins. Personally I said, Political Theater--puh! create a crisis then pretend to 'solve' it, but that's just how I am. Seriously, my church clued me in to the World Government agenda over 30 years ago but I was hoping the totalitarians would hold off until I'm history, chicken that I am. To paraphrase Scripture concerning the latter days: 'No one will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast'. You doubt? Then you must not be watching the news much these days! Don't blame you actually. Their plan reeks of starkness.)

So! All this to say that the New Dawn Magazine article is highly recommended for an overview of what's really going on and why nothing is being improved as we-the-people would expect so please do pass it around if you may. For in sharing the info you may be doing some sand-headed ostrich a favor--and maybe the coming Holograms of Fakery won't be such a big surprise, and more of us will know exactly who to blame for the false flag ops now being planned to keep us in line. These are operations designed to make the MSM-touted World Government seem to be the only entity big enough to 'deal' with such massive problems--some we've seen (environmental disasters, terrorist plots and schemes, credit crunch, etc), and some are being tweaked right now for unleashing at the moment the Global Power Elite decrees it will have the most effect on psyches and notions of decent futures.

Theirs is an interlocking, interfacing, complex and holistic matrix which is tactically flexible but strategically and rigidly unbending with the prospect of collapsing the US dollar and undermining the Euro as European countries potentially separate from the EU turning up every day in the news like a steady drumbeat.

Therefore, if this agenda to crash America and other nations is even remotely true, it makes them all traitors. Not just Ben Fedhead Bernanke.

And even, possibly, the anti-Bernanke candidate, preacher Rick Perry.


*Sibly horoscope for America: July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius rising and a 10th house 'fallen from grace' Saturn if responsibilities aren't honored and authenticity isn't upheld.

The Last Time Uranus Conjoined US natal IC and Burst into 4th House

1. April 16, 1927
2. Oct 9, 1927
3. Feb 5, 1928

A few Events of 1927 which may resemble those of 2010/2011:

In US, Herbert Hoover is elected president (heard of comparisons between Hoover and Obama lately?); the Irish parliament decrees revolutionary societies treasonable; Allied military control of Germany ends; in Portugal a revolt erupts against military dictatorship (now it's financial dictatorship); diplomatic relations are broken off between China and the USSR; Hitler publishes volume 2 of Mein Kampf; exciting (Uranus) archaeological discoveries are made at the site of the ancient Babylonian city of Ur of the Chaldees (like Uranus!); Werner Heisenberg regales the world with his Uncertainty Principle--how Uranian of him.

Then Came 1928:

Stalin introduces the first Five Year Plan for a state-driven economy; borrowed money is used to buy shares on the NYSE (wish we could walk that back); in the US the first African-American congressman of the 20th century is elected, Oscar De Priest,
the French franc is devalued; and in Paris, 65 countries sign the Kellogg-Briand Pact which renounced "war as an instrument of national policy."

Click to read the Pact and the names of the signators. Here's its lofty, now very lamentable, beginning:

"Deeply sensible of their solemn duty to promote the welfare of mankind;..." How soon they forget.

When was the last time you heard a US politician tout the "welfare of mankind"?

In closing, here's a blast from a more distant American past:

"Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God's service when it is violating all His laws."

John Adams

Mr. Buffett's grand idea for the US Congress and a link to his natal chart

Stop coddling the super rich, says one of the richest men in America to the US Congress.

Even if taxes on the wealthy are raised, who doesn't think they'll get by just fine? To say otherwise is simply acting, pretending, and political posturing.

For as progressive broadcaster and author Thom Hartmann has maintained, if wealthy CEOs won't create jobs in America, then you'd think they'd want to aid their country by paying a larger share in taxes!

Though kicking and screaming, we came to their rescue when large corporations and plutocratic banks 'needed' massive bailouts to cover their fraud and gambling losses and make off with a huge payday yet now they leave millions of US workers idle. Paying more in US taxes when the funds are sorely needed for the sake of the nation is the least they can do after profiting off the backs of the American people for decades.

And the media's much-touted 'lack of confidence' has nothing to do with it since the willing participation of wealthy corporations would quell any such lack immediately by bolstering the system. (Mr. Buffett didn't say that, I did.)

If you haven't, you may be interested in reading Dan Cuiboda's analysis of Warren Buffett's natal chart, a study of the Oracle of Omaha!

Moon-Tracking Pres Obama's Bus Tour Aug 15-17, 2011

Moon-Tracking the President's 'Blame Congress Bus Tour' Aug 15-17, 2011

by Jude Cowell

President Obama's *Blame Congress Bus Tour begins tomorrow August 15, 2011 as the president escapes the District in which he has been held captive for most of the last month with lawmakers blaming one another for the debt stalemate, a political theater performance that led directly to the US credit rating downgrade by Standard & Poor's.

As S&P said in their report, AAA-rated nations don't throw around the word "default." So thanks, Tea Party and GOP! Did you get 98% of what you wanted? As usual, the power elite take 98% and leave American workers a measly 2%.

One assumes the presidential bus will not have First Dog Bo lashed to its top a la Mitt Romney's poor pooch.

Yes, jobs creation is the president's topic as the bus, if not the buck, stops in small Midwestern towns in Mr. Obama's attempt to re-connect with the American people, many of whom will have plenty of time to show up and hear him speak because they are jobless. Yet if good ideas for creating US jobs come from the people, will he use them? His lowered approval rating indicates a need for big ideas that actually improve conditions for US workers so he'd be wise to take their advice since his own advisers seem to be adding precious little on the topic.

Being Followed by a Moon Shadow?

Now as you know, in Mundane Astrology, the Moon signifies the people, the public, the populace, and publicity, and the Sun, the leader; Leo is the sign of those with natural leadership abilities, and President Obama was born with his Sun in Leo.

And since we have a definite period of time and an event (bus tour, president-to-people, Aug 15-17), let's peek at the mood (Moon) of the people in relation to the Sun (leader), shall we? Naturally, the relational Sun-Moon combination will apply with the Sun ranging from 22Leo20 (conjunct Venus 22:03 signifying harmony and the ideal, popularity, rich feelings--which he may have but most of us don't--and the potential for acting for the sake of appearances with little intrinsic value (Ebertin.)

Also let me say that I will complete/update yesterday's post on the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse with the 'sinister' flavor which was interrupted by a thunderstorm Saturday--to be published by Monday evening while the president is tooling down the road. But for today's post, this Moon-tracking the bus tour is too fun to ignore! And perhaps it will garner a smidgen of bus tour info.

Now I am using Monday 8:00 am edt, Washington DC as the ETD and Wednesday 8:00 pm edt as trip's end because I don't know precisely when his bus will leave or return to Washington DC, but we have to choose a time frame. And given the few bus trips I've ever taken in my life, I attest that anyone would be glad to leave their seats by 8:00 pm after a 3-days ride! Funny, but the longest one I've ever taken was from Georgia to Washington DC...many moons ago. 'Twas a nightmare I shall never repeat!

Tour's Start August 15, 2011 appr 8:00 am edt White House

Since the Moon remains in a sign for approximately 2 1/2 days, the 3-day tour shows Luna beginning in Pisces and ending on the evening of August 17 in Mars-ruled Aries. Uranus begins @ 4Ari03 and retrogrades to 3Ari59 by tour's end. Uranus in Aries = Utopians (Ebertin) so the Moon will conjoin disruptive, quirky, politically minded Uranians during the trip so we may expect some combination of excitability, emotional tension, determination, and expressions of fear and anxiety to manifest--toward, or even from, the president.

Sun Leo/Moon Pisces: with a Pisces Moon indicating confusion, deception, and Mutable (unstable) conditions--but also compassion and sympathy, the Leo-Pisces blend of energies gives the tour a steamy FIRE-WATER start that indicates modesty yet pride, warm friendliness, and an idealistic, enthusiastic flavor. Yet steam can sterilize--or it can scald!

This is a showy, dramatic combo (necessary for speeches in the limelight) and it is impressionable and easily moved by suffering. Uncertainty is there, yes, but there is a strong need to be useful and creative in a practical way. 'Dignified and hopeful' describe this charismatic energy--courageous in the face of difficulties--and it cannot feign what it really feels. Look for some serious emoting to occur with practical suggestions that we may hope the president will be able to implement in spite of his spiteful enemies.

"Image for Integration: The Wizard of Oz gives the Lion a heart and he becomes King of Oz."

The poetic Sun Leo/Moon blend is shared natally by poet Hugh MacDiarmid who wrote:

"Then I thought of the whole world. Who cares for its travail and seeks to encompass it in like loving kindness and peace?"

Yes! Who? Yet we are reminded that in 2008, a majority of Americans voted for peace and prosperity but we've gotten war and the austerity its high expenditures bring. An applying inconjunct between the Pisces Moon (11:50) and Saturn 12Lib33 in the 2nd house of Money, Earnings, and Values show a huge need for adjustments--inconjunct--between the US government and lawmakers (Saturn, which approaches our Saturn Return on August 28, 2011, 14Lib48) and we-the-people, signified here by the sign Pisces from the victim-savior axis of Virgo/Pisces.

The tour begins with Sun and Venus conjoining the natal Leonine Saturn (responsibility; accountability; austerity; restriction; contraction; loss) of the US Congress--and as stated above, I too blame Congress fro blocking progress that could aid the American people. The president (Sun) will shine a spotlight upon Congress's actions and intractability, and its responsibility (Saturn) for current economic conditions though he certainly must share part of the blame (war; appearing weak against the GOP, not fighting for the people's needs, caving in to Tea Party demands, etc.)

Tour's End August 17, 2011 appr 8:00 pm edt White House

Sun Leo/Moon Aries is a feistier FIRE-FIRE blend with more oomph to its Aries energy than with Moon in watery Pisces. Plus, as mentioned, Luna will be conjoining and sailing past quirky Uranus Rx. Will President Obama engage with a few fanatic Utopians and activists along the way? It seems so.

Leo-Aries is a self-confident, intuitive blend with an abundance of ideas which will apparently be expressed to the president. Idealistic with a social conscience, it does has a 'hero-worship' tendency--but perhaps this is just what the president needs about now to get his mojo back! Will austere Tea Partyism be criticized by the bus tour's Midwestern audiences?

To my way of thinking (America is Not broke--that's just crazy talk!), it's what the corporate-backed Tea Partisans in Congress deserve if only for using the word 'Default' in July and August as if the full faith and credit of the United States is their political plaything. (Feel free to disagree!)

Leo-Aries shows the culmination of the bus tour as being, among other things, an exercise in risk-taking for the president. This blend wants to improve things! Plus, creative enterprises that love applause is one of the ways to sum things up but by tour's end, though feelings of exhaustion will be evident (as per my personal 'bus ride to DC' comments above) so Mr. Obama may collapse like a rag doll once back with his family. He'll, of course, bounce back by Thursday and with some new idea arrows tucked inside his jobs creation quiver, and one hopes he can and will use them.

(Here's one: raising US tariffs is a good place to start.)

There is a tendency with Leo-Aries, however, to talk too much and listen very little to others which is the opposite of the stated mission of this tour. Overestimating one's abilities may be a problem as well though we must remember that the president's 2008 campaign slogan was, Yes We Can, not Yes I Can.

The Leo-Aries blend indicates a noble endeavor so with the American people's continued support for our president, we may be on to some improvements here...especially if Mr. Obama's political enemies--so fanatically determined at any cost to win back the White House and Senate--will move their self-serving, fanatical arses out of our progressive way.

The Anti-Democratic "Super Congress" and "The Family"

Good news about the bad-news "Super Congress" which Washington politicians are attempting to pass off as a "Super Committee" to 'deal' with US debt problems by locating trillions of dollars in budget 'cuts'...

My friend Alex D'Atria has sent along an article concerning the topic which I highly recommend to you. Plus, her piece begins with an image of President Barack Obama's natal horoscope if you wish to snag yourself a peek at its Leonine glory.

This weekend I plan to publish an article on the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse (2Sag37) and you see by its date that it will closely relate to the deadline of *November 23, 2011 when the "Super Congress" is to make its recommendations which, if I understand the endeavor correctly, will go directly into the signing pipeline with no debate--aka, oversight--by a US Congress which has handed off its constitutional duties to 12 partisans, most of whom may be members or associates of Doug Coe's shadowy, quasi-religious, worldly-power-grabbing organization, The Family, aka, The Fellowship.

Their motto? "Jesus plus nothing"!!

Read or listen to Fresh Air's feature on this super-secret group of 'Jesus' freaks here. ('Jesus' freaks is my own description. Jesus in my Bible totally refused the worldly power that Satan offered Him while He was incarnated as a man on earth and I know that some people call 'God' an entity which is actually 'Satan' or 'Lucifer'.)

The Coming of November 2011

With the automatic 'trigger' set to fire against the dissolving American middle and working classes, this is an enterprise set up to fail, m'peops, but the failure will be primarily on the side of the American people, the sovereignty of our nation, and the health of our environment--and who knows what else the "Super Congress" will gut. A constitutional crisis is in the making as well.

Yes, secretive operatives have inherited a "Great Plan" for America which has been a long time in the making though I suspect its original intent has been somewhat diverted or hijacked by modern totalitarians of the last few decades who are motivated by a sinister lust for power and control--I say this even though our nation was founded as a corporation, yet after all, not all corporations are evil.

As for November, we must first navigate the US Saturn Return (#3 of 3 this time around) on August 28, 2011, plus, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. And all leading us by the nose ring into Year 2012 when the collapse has been timed by idealistic Utopians (rebel Uranus now in Aries--Ebertin) and the fabled rebuilding upon ruins begins in earnest...


*It is generally agreed by way of empirical observation through the centuries that Solar Eclipse influences may begin earlier or later than the actual date upon which they manifest--some say up to two weeks in either direction, I would say possibly up to a month. This may also apply to Lunar Eclipses though they usually will relate on a more unconscious or inner level. South Node Solar Eclipses may as well through the SN's unconscious/the past/lunar connection and a Saturnian (SN) or restrictive vibe may be present. And of course, Saturn is a karmic planet indicating a
reaping of what was sown in the past which America must now surely do.

Plus, degrees of Total eclipses may stay sensitive for years or (who can say?)--forever such as with Nostradamus's predictive Mother of All Eclipses (August 11, 1999) with its rigid Fixed Grand Cross of planets which heralded the New Millennium of terror and alarm that politicians can't shut up about for selfish purposes of their own.

Truman And Eisenhower paid down US debt (video)

Here's progressive broadcaster Thom Hartmann explaining how a Democratic and a Republican president--Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower--handled US debt during their terms...they paid it down and grew the US economy simultaneously.

Nowadays you'd think such a practical feat involves rocket science, wouldn't you?

My favorite part is Harry Truman in 1948 calling out the Republican Party as the party of "special interests" and--that's what they'll always be!

Given what's transpiring in Washington this year ad nauseum under the tattered guise of "governing" and considering the financial consequences of their political games and over-arching agenda to 'make Obama a one-term president" (no matter who gets hurt in the process), the GOP now demonstrates just how correct Give 'Em Hell Harry was when it came to understanding the essential nature of the Republican Party.

So when Mundane Astrology tells us that the GOP is signified by rich man Jupiter, with the Democratic Party as sober Saturn (with Dems being the older of the two parties), we might remember Mr. Truman telling us like it is about the party of the Jupiter mantra which insists on dialing things in and suddenly becoming fiscally 'responsible'--but only when there's a Democrat in the White House.

Transparency in Washington!

Oh yeah, and Thom tosses in cut-taxes-on-rich, raise-taxes-on-working class cuss and a half Ronald Reagan who signed the deregulating Garn-St. Germain Act on October 15, 1982 and pronounced with Jupiterian glee that, "All in all, I think we hit the jackpot!"


They did.

And they still do.
