Putin, Russia's natal chart, and a Full Moon on March 16 2014

Virgo Full Moon March 16, 2014 conjoins Russia's Natal Ascendant 26Virgo11

by Jude Cowell

A Full Moon can be quite auspicious when it falls upon a natal planet or Angle and in the case of tomorrow's Full Moon @26Vir01, that would be the Ascendant of Russia's sovereignty horoscope (June 12, 1990; 9:45 am GMT, ASC 26Vir11; Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes.) Some kind of fulfillment of a project, a separation, or a culmination of a plan is indicated along with 'awareness in relationship' vibes attend Full Moons. And as you know, a referendum vote will be held tomorrow (March 16, 2014) to 'decide' if Crimea wants to hitch its star to Russia's wagon--either now or later, rather than unite with the European Union. That's a pretty sorry vote, if you ask me--a 'rock and a hard place' kind of deal for the people.

As the world sees, the 'project' involves troop movements and war for if we set tomorrow's Full Moon chart for Moscow, warrior Mars @26Lib06 Rx and North Node @28Lib37 are rising (ASC 12Lib33 which brings up America's natal Saturn @14Lib48. Can the US perform as a Saturnian barrier to events? We have been citing agreements signed by Russia concerning invasion of national sovereignty which Putin now ignores. And why not since everyone has noticed that the US didn't play by the rules when it invaded Iraq, for example. Hypocrisy much, Washington?)

For more info check out The Taipai Times' Ukraine braces for Crimea vote as violence flares or The Guardian's Russia vetoes Crimea motion as Kiev claims it repelled Russian troops in south Ukraine--live updates.

Additionally, the November 3, 2013 Solar Eclipse @11Sco15, which is still in force, conjoined, triggered, or eclipsed the natal Venus (11Sco42) of Vladimir Putin. Venus relates to jealousy, envy, and revenge and with his natal Venus in vengeful, secretive Scorpio, something was bound to happen. Venus in Scorpio can tend to waste its energy through excessive passion and self-control often wavers or vacillates with this placement. Unfortunately, the diplomatic skills of Venus seem to be lacking on Putin's part in current circumstances with belligerence holding sway. Plus, the attraction principle of Venus attracts spying Scorpio types of activities, interests, and people to the side of this 'former' KGB agent.

Mr. Putin's natal Sun Libra-Moon Gemini blend (Air-Air) indicates that he may spread himself too thin to accomplish all his goals but perhaps it somewhat depends upon who aids him in his current take-over endeavors.

Now if you haven't, you may wish to view President Putin's natal horoscope by visiting astrodatabank set for October 7, 1952 at 9:30 am, St. Petersburg, Russian Federation. However, his birth data's accuracy is in question so the horoscope has a Rodden Rating of C.

Of interest concerning the March 16, 2014 Full Moon may be its Water-Earth Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo blend's Images for Integration: "Small events bring enormous consequences...A mosaic picture of the universe, each piece perfect in itself...Faith and reason shake hands." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

The reference to 'faith' and 'reason' reminds me of the November 3, 2013 Solar Eclipse with its Uranus (reason)/Neptune (faith) influences which also relate to the 'new world order', a massive global project we're watching develop under our noses in Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea with major US involvement--because all the little dictators want to be The Boss of the 'nwo'!

March 2013 US Progressions: SP Mars-Saturn = SP Moon

March-April 2013: US Progressions Show Strain of SP Mars-Saturn = SP Moon (We the People)

by Jude Cowell

Sometimes when listening to Washington DC politicians squawk, deceive, propagandize, and scam it's helpful to look at certain progressions issuing from America's natal horoscope (using July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA today) for an updated snapshot of what we as a nation of leaders and citizens have evolved into, or the point of progress we have reached.

Below you see an image of the USA's secondary progressions (physical plane) for March 11, 2013 at 3:51 pm, the moment of a New Moon @21Pis24, which falls into the 7th house of Legal Partnerships and Open Enemies in the SP chart. A few details follow (click image to enlarge for more details), but mainly I wanted to show you a difficult midpoint picture involving America's SP Moon (the public) which is in the mood for balance in unequal conditions and situations, but instead we're getting political theater, illusions, deceptions--and from Mars-Saturn's energies of 'destroyed vitality; destruction; harm' influences, we're being subjected to quarrels and conflicts (Mars) blended with austerity and restriction (Saturn):

SP Mars-Saturn = SP Moon: feelings about losing something (our jobs, our futures, our country? jc); moodiness or depression; lack of courage--or, developing courage and strength; a need to restrain impulsive activities; anger over restrictions (anti-women's-rights legislation and odd proposals by misogynist Republicans who don't relate in a normal fashion to the ladies? jc); energy levels that fluctuate. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey.)

The combined energies of the Mars-Saturn duo also relate to potentials for military power, use of strife and struggle, persistent wars, frustration for or by criminal elements, demands to halt armaments (ex: North Korea which says its missiles can now attack Americans--the people = Moon--jc), continued military actions under political or other restrictions, an obligation to use force when restraint is called for, ambitiously taking the property of others, and/or an older enterprise which becomes angered.

In April, the SP Mars-Saturn = SP Moon picture will perfect (25Lib48) and be at its strongest concerning 2/8 and 3/9 house matters, if it expresses at all.

That last sounds like the ongoing influence of the Uranus-Pluto Cardinal Square with its generational challenges as old guard (Pluto) blocks and is blocked by Uranian rebels and whippersnappers of a 'radical reform' nature. And I'm certain that you recognize players like old-guard Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham being none too pleased (so they say) with the likes of Senator Ted Cruz whose physical and rhetorical resemblances to insinuating Senator Eugene McCarthy are uncannily reminiscent of the McCarthy era's *paranoia when mere mentions could sink a politician's career.

Well, dear reader, I hope you're actually on this blog because here is the SP chart of America for March 11, 2013:

Hour of Mars Rx (@18Lib25 in 2nd hou$e), and chart-ruler Mercury @20AQ42 is also Rx so right away we know there are delays and frustrations afoot; Neptune and NN are in karmic degrees ('fated' = reaping what was sown)...26Cancer/26Virgo, so they are sextile one another along with the 26-degree MC/IC security/domestic scene axis; the Neptune-NN midpoint opposes US natal Moon in Aquarius...Neptune-NN = Moon: enhanced intuition; lack of community spirit.

Neptune trines MC denoting that illusions, deception, fraud, and possibly inspiration or intuition are used to further career and our nation's public status.

You see SP Uranus @7Gem01 in the public 10th house which, along with US natal Uranus, has been so recently visited by transit Jupiter indicating that political, social, academic, and/or financial gains can be or have been made by those who have the opportunities afforded to them.

However, SP trickster Pan Rx and SP wealthy gold-hoarder Midas oppose one another (although in 'real time' they've been traveling in tandem for the last few years--in Gemini conjunct US natal Uranus and tr Jupiter)--and Pan Rx conjoins US SP Neptune in the 2nd house of the National Treasury. Plus, for more economic destabilization, we have the inflationary, scheming Jupiter-Neptune pair ruling the 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt/Credit, and Corporations by way of its murky Piscean cusp.

And SP Jupiter @15Can25 Rx continues to lodge upon the Pentagon's natal Ascendant making 'sequester cuts' to America's military budget difficult to have faith in (for me) though its Rx condition relates to US natal Jupiter's Rx Station of 1905--pre-WWI--when our nation's Jupiterian functions became inverted and crabbed by war, war-profiteering, high-interest loans for waging war that benefit international bankers, and an ideology that expands in spite of what befalls those haplessly encountered within its path.

IC = End of the Matter; The Drain: Ruled by Mars, Sub-Ruled by Pluto

The critical/crisis-degreed Pluto (29Cap) in 5th house of Speculation and Risk-Taking is worrisome, of course, for Underworld Pluto of The Syndicate remains as he's always been in US charts: out-of-bounds and working on his own in isolation (ex: an ivory tower, a distant vantage point.) And with US SP South Node of the Moon nearby @26Cap20, war and violence continue to be what our 'leaders' fall back on as they march our nation toward its destiny while riding the currents of public moods and opinions as befitting a Neptune-NN sextile yet managing to avoid such shifting cultural trends within their own lives, as they generally desire.

This avoidance is accomplished by subtle evasion rather than by direct confrontation and/or honesty. Try to get a direct answer to a fair question from a well-practiced politician!

Now there are many other chart factors active in America's current Secondary Progressions especially when transits and Solar Arcs are considered but I shall trust you to check things out if you wish and leave a comment with this post, if you may!


US planets now Rx by Progression: Mercury (AQ), Mars (Libra), Jupiter (Cancer), Saturn (Scorpio), and Neptune (Virgo); unaspected: Moon, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Pluto, and Chiron; oppressive plutocracy's Pluto-Chiron = Sun (the leader; the president.)

*Paranoia is easily felt and exploited whenever nebulous, gaseous Neptune floats through its own sign of confused and confusing Pisces.

The West: wrong about Georgia?

Why The West Has Got It So Wrong Over Georgia


It's a sobering thought that, if George W. Bush had had his way and Georgia had been a member of Nato, we would now be at war with Russia.

America's Progressed Full Moon in Virgo

Here you see America's Secondary Progressed Chart for Dec 24, 2008, the moment of her Progressed Full Moon (based on 'Sibly' natal chart, July 4, 1776, 5:10 pm LMT.)

Transits for that date and the moment of the Full Moon are written around the outside of the chart along with a few other details, plus you'll find more info here:

US Progressed Full Moon if you wish. I will be adding details there concerning the Hard Rectangle pattern you see in the chart as time and tech gremlins allow.

As you notice, the end of this cycle comes upon Christmas Eve 2008 and between the Nov 4 elections and Inauguration Day 2009.

Feeling the pinch: Jupiter to US chart

Economic slowdowns involve much more astrologically speaking than Jupiter's influence.

Although he prefers to bring us money, largesse, and abundance, jolly Jupiter can be something of a parsimonious culprit when making oppositions to natal planets.

Such is 2008 for America's natal chart with her Venus, Jupiter, and Sun in Cancer, one of the 'business' signs, and sign of the Home.

Beginning New Years' Day, and looking at the USA's Sibly chart (July 4, 1776, 5:10 pm LMT) we see Jupiter opposing natal Venus (money; values; relationships), natal Jupiter, and natal Sun (which is also George Bush's natal Sun, as you know.)

This ranges from 3 Cancer to 14 Cancer and illustrates a difficulty in having a triple conjunction--it extends transits to longer periods of time than if there were only one natal planet involved.

Plus, aspect patterns such as USA's Sun/Saturn square are set off simultaneously which adds complexity to the situation, but time is short this morning so I'll only give the Jupiter oppositions as a basic background of 2008.

Jupiter oppo Venus: the usual pleasures may fall flat; business and pleasure don't mix; promoted events don't live up to the hype; partnerships and joint ventures may suffer from lack of money or enthusiam esp if they're already stressful; others don't cooperate as they should (Bush in Arabia?); promises are not kept; values, perspectives, sincerity, and sense of proportion are under suspicion.

Jupiter oppo Jupiter: discontent with wealth or achievement; no one is impressed; worthwhile things are done better by someone else; overblown efforts and discouraging comparisons; taking things for granted or pushing too hard should be avoided; sources of money dry up.

Jupiter oppo Sun: situations occur that deplete resources (the entire Bush residency actually); generosity benefits the wrong people (the already rich?); those who would like to help are stymied by powerlessness; grandiose ideas don't pan out; victories won may compromise integrity and principles; pride is wounded, ego is deflated; father is cast in an unfavorable light (in Bush's case, he should be.)

2008 has other transits to consider as well, but I can't go into them now...except for one--a generational transit that's been a long time coming. So if you feel yourself succumbing, just hang in there and know that this too shall pass...

Uranus oppo Neptune: one ideology is replaced by another; loss of ideals.

Now America would be nothing without ideals, and the 'replacement' may be a good thing if we can replace the warhawkery and war profiteering ideology of Dick Cheney's 1% gang that we've been suffering under.

A higher destiny for America? How about higher actions and honesty to go along with it?

It's up to The People to do this--obviously our lying politicians have other ideals and plans which we know are dark and dreary and bring more war, not less, privation for us, more resources for them.

And remember that there are those on Wall Street who use Astrology so they've seen 2008 coming all along. Take their nuggets of wisdom with a grain of you-know-what, and most of all, don't hold back your own generosity when you get a chance to spread it around!

Iranian gunboats mock US ships: Mars wins

From LegitGov

Hello, Pot? This is Kettle... Iran should avoid provocative actions: White House Jan 7 2008:

The White House said on Monday that the harassment of US Navy ships by Iran was "provocative" and warned Tehran against taking such actions in the future.

"We urge the Iranians to refrain from such provocative actions that could lead to a dangerous incident in the future," White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said. [Is illegally invading and occupying a country and killing over one million civilians 'provocative?' Just curious.]

Read article here.

With expansive Jupiter at the "Indians rowing a canoe and dancing a war dance" degree ("5Cap"), let's have a look at the Sabian Symbol (Jones) for this war promoting degree:


pos: a capacity for aggressive leadership and an unusual effectiveness in sidetracking minor issues for the sake of major achievement;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: unnecessary moods and tantrums.

Sound like diversionary but reckless tactics, and we suspect we know what major achievement Iran--and the neocons--are preparing for.

Perhaps Adriano Carelli's book of degrees (linked in previous post) will provide a bit more detail (my italics):

"Two open a degree of hospitality; home and hearth are open to all. (Persian Gulf?) A jovial (Jupiter!) character, a generous and unassuming nature, marred by imprudence in word and action. The native's lack of reserve will give fuel to other people's slander and, coupled with his sometimes reckless hospitality, will lead to material theft and plagiarism of ideas."

As with everything in life and Astrology, energy flows in both directions--simultaneously or in alternating fashion.

Transit Jupiter is approaching opposition to America's natal Jupiter, a period when no one is the least bit impressed with one's grandiose Jupiterian efforts (which may also describe Republican candidates' performances on the campaign trail!), and there is potential for overblown efforts and discouraging comparisons.

Kind of like little unimpressed gunboats mocking huge US vessels as we push into their territorial waters (disputed though they may be)?

Mars, the instigator, still oobs and Rx, at critical "29Gem"..."The first mockingbird of spring"...QUICKENING...

pos: consistent stimulation to others in all human affairs;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: annoying self-assertiveness.#

He who annoys attracts annoyance.

Being that it's the "first mockingbird" of a season, and "consistent stimulaton" this is probably the beginning of a campaign of another sort by Iran inspired by the explosive combo of the off-again-on-again opposition of Mars and Pluto--with Pluto at the "The pope blessing the faithful" degree which speaks of surrendering to a lust for power.

There's a lot of that going around.

And did you know that Jan 6 was the second conjunction of Iran's current Saturn Return? Natal Saturn 8Vir18 and Jan 6's Saturn 8Vir17!

Current transits to Iran's Saturn: Jupiter trine Saturn, a time of rewards for hard work, and there may be a lucky break with financial backing made available.

Venus square Saturn is an anti-social time but indicates that favors are received which require something of equal value in return.

The triple Saturn Return dates for Iran are: Dec 2, 2006; Jan 6, 2008 Rx; and August 5, 2008.

collapsing America going well, thanks

As this blog and many others have been saying for years:

The Planned Collapse of USA

By Peter Chamberlin

We risk blowing the world apart, to avoid watching America slowly choke on its own excesses. The government has known for decades that America is on a countdown to self-destruction. Among the elite it is common knowledge that our "global economy" must one day collapse from its own dead weight...

Read article here.

Got mortgage? Well, in 2001 Bush did speechify America as an "ownership society"--he just didn't say who'd be doing the owning in his poppa's New World Order.

My previous post, Cheney and 9/11 has Cheney's Secondary Progressed chart (the physical plane) set for 9/11/01 and voila! the pair of plutocracy, oppression, and class warfare, Pluto/Chiron, sits at the top o' the chart--the Midheaven, the WHY? or Aspiration Point of any chart.

As you know, a Progressed chart is always based on a natal chart, so I can't make this up.

It's ugly but quite a descriptive sight, in case you missed it 'ere this, so take a peek if you may...collapse of The Tower continues as per the globalists' plan.

Even with my natal Jupiter/Saturn trine and its sense of humor, I am not, nor have I ever been, kidding.

interview with Barbara Slavin on US-Iran

Barbara Slavin, senior diplomatic correspondent for USA Today since 1996 and author of the recently published book,Bitter Friends, Bosom Enemies: Iran, the U.S., and the Twisted Path to Confrontation (St. Martin's Press), writes that,

"Iran and the United States are like a once happily married couple that has gone through a bitter divorce. Harsh words have been exchanged - husband and wife have come to blows and employed others to inflict more punishment. Apologizing is hard and changing behavior even harder. This relationship is unequal, with one side or the other feeling more vulnerable at any given time and afraid the other will take advantage of concessions."

Currently, the public faces of both nations, presidents George W. Bush and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have been content to throw rhetorical bombs and raise the diplomatic temperature - increasing the likelihood of war. Indeed, at times it appears that conservative hardliners in both countries are eager for conflict as a means to maintain their respective grips on power.

Using her extensive contacts among the powerful inside Iran and the United States, Slavin documents missed opportunities for reconciliation between both countries during the administrations of the first President Bush as well as Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. The combination of her remarkable access to people such as Madeline Albright, Condelezza Rice, Iranian reformers like former President Mohammad Khatami, longtime establishment figures such as Ali Rafsanjani, as well as dissidents like Akbar Ganji and everyday citizens, allows Slavin to shed sunlight on a nation most Americans know very little about. She is also the first newspaper reporter from the United States to interview Iranian President Ahmadinejad.

Slavin has accompanied three secretaries of State on their official travels and reported from Iran, Libya, Israel, Egypt, North Korea, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia and Syria. She is also a regular commentator for U.S. foreign policy on National Public Radio, the Public Broadcasting System's Washington Week In Review and C-Span. This month, she joined the U.S. Institute of Peace as a Jennings Randolph fellow, to continue her research on Iran. Slavin also serves as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Slavin agreed to a podcast interview with me about her book, Iran and their turbulent relationship with the United States. Our conversation is just under thirty minutes.

are you celebrating Columbus Day?

Perhaps you are, but you can be more celebratory by reading my tiny Ode to Columbus Day which has a drawing from Secret Moon Art included with artist's compliments, entitled: You May Cross the Great Water--a quite Neptunian image.

But on another level, so is the festive bottle of bubbles seen above!

And on a political note, you know America has the Saturn to natal Neptune transit beginning with any, all, or none of the following influences:

giving up under stress; denial; losing focus; misrepresentation of responsibilities; assuming the burdens of others; deception in money matters; harsh reality surfaces; disillusionment.

The positive side includes creative projects benefiting through traditions, structure, and more realism; spiritual growth through established institutions; and charitable efforts are put to more practical, focused uses.

Ethnic weapons is a collection of several articles which were brought to my attention some months ago and which I've just today gotten round to reading.


Thanks to the Anonymous commenter for the link.

And on second thought, perhaps what I thought was a biased comment last week is connected to the research mentioned above...the comment concerned hive collapse disorder being an "Israeli virus."

Poppy and the Attacks of 9/11

This post is about Shrub's Poppy and the Attacks of 9/11/01 when their New World Order was given a massive boost by win-at-any-costs plutocrats. Whether by blithe arrogance, inept thoughtlessness, or cruel design, the charts tell a tale of Jupiter/Pluto increase and Mars/Uranus revolution.

Hopefully, if you're reading this, you are also visiting on-blog, for clicking-to-enlarge the image (Bush Sr natal = Inner chart with 9/11/01, 8:46 am edt, NYC round the Outside) gives more detail than a single typing finger can manage--and even though my notes are squished-in as usual, I've color-coded the important bits for your consideration.

And after toying with the idea of posting the chart for Sr's shout-out for the NWO in the US Congress (brazenly on Sept 11, 1991--yep! 10 years prior to the day) I decided that one of the main tactics of promoting the NWO--the attacks on America, 9/11/01--would be just as telling and interesting as his NWO speech. I can post that later on, if anyone wants to see it for it's always informative to progress such charts, too.

But one thing I will add about Poppy's NWO shout-out is the Prenatal Eclipse Series in which it fell. It's the same Series in which the assassination of too-close-for-comfort writer Danny Casolaro fell--killed the weekend of Aug 9/10, 1991...

11South: the need for making sudden reforms as old ideas or methods will fail and new systems are required to deal with events brought by this Eclipse; new ways of handling issues must be developed and any blockages may be violently or tragically removed (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

The Initial Eclipse of this Series: June 14, 1360 (OS), Sun/Moon at World Events Point 00Can48, a degree triggered on 9/11/01 by violent tr Mars conj the karmic South Node (SN.) Interesting also is that the Initial Eclipse's Mercury (the scribe, the writer, the youth, the messenger) is conj Casolaro's natal Mercury at "20Cancer"...conj Fixed Star, Castor,to write or create. Casolaro thought he'd found the brass ring at last with his research and planned book. His notes disappeared that weekend.

The 11S Solar Eclipse occurred July 11, 1991; next manifestation: July 22, 2009, 29Can27, at the critical "Daughter of the American Revolution" degree.

The attacks of 9/11 happened during some powerful transits to Poppy's chart:

9/11 Venus to n Neptune: others find you out-of-touch, imagination and abstract thinking thrive with satisfying and profitable results; photographs taken now are flattering.

9/11 Uranus to n Mars (the explosive duo): danger in the air; encountering nontraditional people and circumstances; energy within associations and partnerships increase; introducing new techiniques and methods; use of the occult. (This transit was within orb before and after 9/11.)

9/11 Jupiter to n Pluto: personal power, resourcefulness, and new perspectives are felt; the big picture; keeping in control of things; greater power is established; success bwo the evaluation or distribution of monetary assets and raw materials.

9/11 Pluto to Jupiter (a double whammy!): seeking to attain greater power in political ambitions and economic expansion; a thrust for power and leadership; father's influence plays a karmic role in current endeavors; sphere of influence expands; intolerance and fanticism.

NOTE: my post was just shut down--got the "post may not save or publish" message as if I weren't connected (I was.) So I'll end for now with all apologies and continue at a later date since I know this is strong stuff. That's why I waited until 2007 to post it! Hopefully it will publish.

Saturn in Virgo for the 2008 US election

Will the repairing of America be on the next president's agenda?

Although I've been studying the charts for the 2008 Election, I haven't prepared a post for publishing as of yet. So I keep an eye out for any articles by my esteemed colleagues who have come to a conclusion or two on the subject.

One such article from today by Philip Brown at AstroFutureTrends is Thoughts on Saturn in Virgo and the 2008 Election where Philip relates the upcoming visit of Saturn to the modest, fix-it sign of Virgo during the presidential election cycle--a definite must-read!

a squinty eye on Congress

Because astrologers much prefer to have exact times for setting up charts--whether it's for persons or events--I was happy today to find a Library of Congress website that gives bills, resolutions and their statuses, and the congressional schedule--times noted.

So often we get stuck with "approximately", or "shortly after" the hour, etc...which makes it scintillatingly challenging to use angles, planets, degrees and such to pinpoint a correct time, and all astrologers are accustomed to doing just that esp with rectification work.

Rectifying charts to a correct birth time, for example, while fascinating, is one of the more time-consumimg facets of astrology--how much easier to have the correct time in the first place.

Why no one has given me a heads-up on the existence of this marvelous resource, I don't know, but it should make my charts more accurate as far as congressional shenigans go. Feeling pretty miffed about it, but that will pass...

So...have you met 'Thomas'? Named after Thomas Jefferson, this site has search features for bills, resolutions, for what's happening on the floor NOW--why, it's stunningly helpful for using the time-focused art of astrology. is great for when you need to know What, Who, How, and WHEN (it's the Why that remains highly questionable.)

Oh! And Bush signed the new and improved we're-draconian-so-that-you-don't-have-to-be "Homeland Security" bill today. Yippee.

It's more of America's increasing isolation and police state mentality on the way for John Q. Public as the USA's Secondary Progressed Mars Rx focuses inwardly on the Lunar-named "Homeland" for now more than ever their target is We The People.

Besides--Saturn's "Fatherland" was already taken.

speaking of Total Solar Eclipses

Look what I found while posting a tidbit at Jude's Threshold which is my WordPress blog:

Total Solar Eclipse Paths from Strange Maps.

I've been planning an article on the two "US" Eclipses you'll find mentioned there, so maybe this is as good a time as any:

Aug 21, 2017, and the Eclipse of Apr 8, 2024, both of which "slash" across America, as some say, esp the 2024 Eclipse which will be visible from Mexico to Maine and reminds me of the highway the globalists are envisioning for us (not quite the right route--but there's more.)

I confess that the possibility of earthquakes had occurred to me...fault lines, the continent separating, etc. Or how about another "Civil War"? All ughy of course, and too close for comfort.

Aug 21, 2017 (29Leo): in the 1North Series, the initial Eclipse of the Series occurred Jan 4, 1639 (14Cap.)

It tends to bring unexpected events which place stress on personal and group relationships. 1N is the Series which contains Nostradamus' King of Terror Eclipse which manifested on Aug 11, 1999. Relationship issues loom large, but making hasty decisions is unwise because info is distorted and possibly false.

Also there are issues of fatigue and/or health problems with this Series.

April 24, 2024 (19Ari): in the 8North Series, the initial Eclipse occurred May 17, 1501 (4Gem51.)

This Series tends toward inventiveness and flashes of genius, intuitive leaps, and vivid or prophetic dreams. The new-found inspiration makes having temporary freedom necessary which causes strain within personal relationships.

8N is the Pre-natal Eclipse Series of the formation/birth of al Qaeda (1988)...more on that later since al Qaeda will be having a birthday in August. My guess is that you remember how al Qaeda members--or hangers-on--were said to have had dreams of airplanes flying into buildings just prior to 9/11/01. Or so we're told.

There will be more to post concerning these Eclipses in awhile, and I'd be very interested in your opinion on the subject as well.

Eclipse info: Brady's Predictive Astrology

Jupiter conjunct Saturn, May 2000

"Our only political party has two right wings, one called Republican, the other Democratic. But Henry Adams figured all that out back in the 1890s. 'We have a single system,' he wrote, and 'in that system the only question is the price at which the proletariat is to be bought and sold, the bread and circuses.'"

Gore Vidal, The Decline and Fall of the American Empire

You gotta love it when you find someone agreeing with you!

The above quote from Gore Vidal has inspired me to look yet again at the chart for the Jupiter (R-Party)--Saturn (D-Party) conjunction of May 28, 2000 through which the world is now slogging (Jup/Sat = 20 year cycle)--and what a pretty picture it is when the Rs and Ds coordinated yet again to bolster joint plans and make arrangements to sock it to The People.

Jupiter conj Saturn:

Using May 28, 2000, 12:02 pm edt, White House, the Great Conjunction of Jupiter (expansion principle) and Saturn (restriction principle) took place at Midheaven, the WHY? or Goal/Aspirations Point of the chart.

With MC 22Tau22, this gives three midpoint pictures to consider:

Jup/Sat = MC: thinking with grandeur; the philosopher; fluctuating success; changes; losses.

Jup/MC = Saturn: discontent; a happy change; non-utilization of opportunities; a missing of the right moment; cautious pursuit of opportunities; respect for the rules; long-lasting endeavors pay off with long-lasting rewards.

Sat/MC = Jupiter: changing fortunes; clinging to hopes or trying to look at the good side of things; simplicity; modesty (!); contentment; doing things right or how they are expected to be done; keeping things as they are or changing things to how they should be done for maximum security.

Pallas, an asteroid whose keywords include strategy, is at the Aug 11, 1999 Solar Eclipse degree of 18Leo+ (that's Nostradamus' King of Alarm Eclipse), which is also vengeful Venus' degree on the morning of 9/11/01.

Opposite Pallas is asteroid, Cupido, from which we get the word, cupidity, meaning, desire for wealth. Asteroid, Cupido also relates to the community or family groups (which would include the Syndicate and the mafia.)

The chart's 8th cusp (money of others, debt, insurance, legacies, credit, transformations; death; the occult/"hidden") has secretive, obfuscating, dissolving Pisces upon it (using Placidus House system which I tend to stick with unless looking at charts from centuries ago--then Regiomantanus--that's just how I roll.)

Within 8th house we see the Moon (The People; the public; publicity; changes and fluctuations) at 3Aries14. Whenever I see an Aries Moon, I always think of terror-promoter Robespierre and his love of saying, I AM the people.

But back to the 2000 conjunction--and here's where it gets really icky...

Also at MC (Goals; Aspirations; WHY?) with Jupiter and Saturn are two asteroids of archetypal importance esp when you consider what's go on since 2000.

Sigma: keyphrases: good judgement, moral sanity leading to moderation, temperance, and self-control; restraint. 'Sigma' stands for Greek goddess, Sophrosyne, and is of philosophical significance (as are the Jupiter-Saturn combo.)

Wonder what happened there? Moral sanity and moderation were their Goals? Puh! More like their goals to destroy.

Perhaps the addition of this particular and difficult 2nd asteroid understandably complicates the picture for that it's more like:

Nemesis: keyphrases: to give what is due; one who brings justice or revenge; a source of harm or ruin; a fatal divinity; retributive justice in its outcome or execution; an inescapable punishment for human presumption; an unbeatable opponent (Bush's 'election'? al Qaeda's rise? Jupiter conjuncted Saturn for al Qaeda, too.)

So this is what the 'New Millennium' has brought us so far, in good part thanks to our illusory, deceptive "two-party system" which royally s*cks. And they have the audacity and presumption to call themselves the elite !

Stewardship - or major pocket-lining?

Either way, fear-mongering and terror-touting are the order of the day while the Rs and Ds still rule the roost ad nauseum...and final dispositor Mercury in the 2000 Conjunction chart is at "28Gemini", the "Bankruptcy" degree...and all sides are proving masterfully that they know exactly how to bankrupt America.

Awakening Warrior by Timothy Challans

Timothy Challans, a career infantry officer writes in his new book, Awakening Warrior: A Revolution In the Ethics of Warfare (State University Press of New York) that,

“The great paradox is that America goes to war against forces that it plays a large role in creating, and each war spawns new threats of largely its own creation.”

In a thoughtful book that blends philosophy and history, Challans diagnoses the ills of what he describes as the “warrior ethos” and the “American War Machine” which encompasses those political and military institutions that engage the world with physical force. Challens argues that America’s survival is contingent upon replacing the current warrior ethos with a new paradigm guided by ethics.

A native of Colorado, Challens is a West Point graduate and earned masters and doctorate degrees in philosophy at the Johns Hopskins University. For more than ten years he taught over a thousand military students from the rank of cadet to colonel, at West Point (USMA), the Command and General Staff College (CGSC), and the School for Advanced Military Studies (SAMS).

progressed midpoints of JFK: 7.26.07

"....if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people--their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties...if that is what they mean by a "liberal" then I am proud to be a liberal." John F. Kennedy

As you know, our natal charts continue to be impacted by transits and also continue progressing after we've passed into history.

Today I'm looking at the current Progressed charts--Secondary (sec = physical plane), Minor (minor = mental plane), and Tertiary (tert = emotional-intuitive plane) for John F. Kennedy, and their **midpoint pictures now formed ('thumnail' views, you could say--in English for the astrologese-impaired) for they may be instructive concerning the current state of the nation to which he was sacrificed.

If you're tender, you may want to skip this post entirely. Any, all, or some combination/s may apply.


Merc/Sat = Mars: quarrels; unrest; tendency to treat others badly; bringing about enforced separations; circumstances cause separations; incompatibility; risking everything to make a point; turning drive into tyranny.

Pluto/NN = ASC: the desire or need to gain influence over the public; mind control.

Ven/Jup = Mercury: love of entertainment; mirth; optimism; communicating with grace; writing beautifully.

NN/ASC = Neptune: forming relationships through shared interests such as the paranormal; impressionability; wrong impressions or perceptions; weakening of associations through lies and deceit.


Moon/MC = NN: adaptability; sympathy; professional contacts.

Merc/Jup = Saturn: breaking off negotiations; uncertainty during negotiations; sober decisions; withdrawing from disputes to avoid a fight; rational thought; the lonely stand.

*Merc/Sat = Sun...also appears in Secondaries, see below.

Ven/Sat = Mercury: sober thinking; the visualization of stark reality; preoccupation; searching for the ideal.

Mars/Pluto = Sun: violent measures; the ability to work until collapse; intervention of the big shock; upset; passionate attack to achieve an objective; upset of plans that is unredeemable.

Jup/ASC = MC: contacts with others who support one's personal success; successful contacts.

Sat/MC = Venus: dryness in relationships; improvement in job situation.

Sat/Pluto = Neptune: being doubted; not being seen for who one really is; unstable life situation because of the inexplicable--because of fear; fraud, lies, falsehoods; the desire to harm others secretly; immorality; danger through water, gas, poison; shattered nerves (exs: gas explosions, flooding, Litvinenko poisoning in the news.-jc)


Moon/Sat: MC: structuring ambition; making things happen carefully; feeling lonely or deserted; the state of being sick or sad.

Merc/Nep: Sun: impressionability; being deceived; sensitivity; creativity.

Merc/Jup = Neptune: lack of realism; inspiration; beguiling fantasy; losing focus os an issue; magnetism.

*Merc/Sat = Sun: changes; separations; getting down to work; discipline pays off; knowing what's got to be done (also appears in Terts.)

Nep/Pluto = Mars: lack of energy or stamina; misfortune to be used as a tool for other people's interests; tendency to succumb to external powers; great personal magnetism to set things right or rejection of actions due to misunderstandings.

Plu/ASC = Mercury: the thrust of intellect; domination of other people's minds; suggestion; hypnosis (see 'Plu/NN = ASC' in minors.)

JFK's Sec Mercury is currently at ooLib46, conj US natal MC (Goals; Aspirations; Public Status) and so I'd like to add the Sabian Symbol for "1Lib" using the rounding-up method:

"A butterfly made perfect by a dart through it"--ARTICULATION...

pos: man's awakening to the need for some more whole-souled focus on character;

neg/shadow side/unconcious: the loss of all true selfhood by a needless surrender to the world and conformity to its ways.

On 9/11/01, this Symbol aquired a deeper meaning--remember how many people spoke of turning to spiritual things and how materialism wasn't the answer? There is deeper meaning behind these attacks, folks said.

Why, for days, weeks, and egad! even months afterward, TV commercials changed and became more 'sensitive' and less 'greed-infused' but it seems obvious that this momentum has slowed to a crawl. We're up to our old ways as if the dart had never pierced the heart of this nation (a 'butterfly' flitting about to the next new thing.)

And so I pray for America to find a better road in a better way--and I'm sending a heartfelt shout-out to all who love her rather than use her cynically for their own interests. You know who you are.

And although I don't idolize JFK, it does seem that he cared more for this nation than those who currently infest the White House (and most of the varmints serving (themselves) on Capitol Hill. Of course, my liberal slant may be to me a people person, if you's all right by me.

NPR announced today that Karl Rove has been subpoenaed so let's see what good another apparently toothless subpoena will do, shall we, as the drama continues to unfold...matinee discounts available.

Vonnegut: power-drunk chimpanzees

A heads-up quote from Kurt Vonnegut via Information Clearing House:

"But I know now that there is not a chance in hell of America becoming humane and reasonable. Because power corrupts us, and absolute power corrupts us absolutely. Human beings are chimpanzees who get crazy drunk on power. By saying that our leaders are power-drunk chimpanzees, am I in danger of wrecking the morale of our soldiers fighting and dying in the Middle East? Their morale, like so many lifeless bodies, is already shot to pieces. They are being treated, as I never was, like toys a rich kid got for Christmas.": Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Author.#

Here's a previous post concerning Vonnegut's natal chart for you.
