Is Mr. Trump like Mr. Stalin?

by Jude Cowell, partisan for the common good

Recently I've heard a pundit or two on TV state that, rather than Herr Adolf, old Donald Trump is more like the Soviet Union's Joseph Stalin. Of course, no dictator is a prize in the humanity sweepstakes, yet if Trump and comrades manage to steal the White House in November we'll all be messing around and finding out through nasty experiences.

A disturbing suspicion is that few Americans of our younger generations are familiar with the horror that was Stalin or are aware of the dystopian society he created, as if it were a good idea (like the psychopath he was).

So naturally I got to wondering what would transpire if I put together a bi-wheel of the Stalin and Trump natal charts to see which planets and points make contact between them - which ones blend, as it were. So see what you think - here is the result:

1946 reaches back to 1878

Obviously, there are significant contacts such as Stalin's natal Pluto Rx @24Tau58 conjunct Trump's Midheaven ('MC' = goals) where enraged star Algol of Medusa fame twinkles off and on. Notably, Algol is often prominent in the natal charts of criminals and murderers (D.K. Rosenberg). Plus, Stalin's Mars-Pluto opposition of brutality and violence sits neatly upon Trump's MC-IC angles - across the possessive Taurus-Scorpio axis. Their Mercuries are in opposite signs, too.

There's even a Trump Moon-SN conjunct Stalin Sun in Sagittarius, quite a match they are, it seems, and with their natal Suns (egos; goals) in opposite signs.

Then Trump's guiding planet, his inner voice of chaos and disruption, Uranus @17Gemini conjuncts Stalin's Syzygy Moon @17Gemini but to make matters more complex, zealous Stalin was a Uranus-Pluto square kind of despot (aka, an extremely violent, revolutionary anarchist) and his radical Uranus @4Virgo rises in Trump's natal chart as does Trump's aggressive Mars @26Leo and royal star, Regulus with its caution against taking revenge, or all that's gained will be taken away.

Then as you know, the Mars-Uranus duo is another cosmic signal for incendiary, erratic, and/or revolutionary activities.

The rest of their contacts I shall leave up to you, dear reader, for I've had all of these two maladjusted miscreants I can take for one post. Except that --

Trump you know ad nauseum, but if you wish, check out a Mini-Bio of Joseph Stalin, "--one of the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century." And yes, the video may be rough to watch, but it cannot possibly be as rough as living in a society where an authoritarian dictator like Stalin decides quirkily if you and your loved ones live, die, or are locked up. Therefore --

Vote Blue in November. Because all of our lives depend on it.

House Republicans Vote to Shield Dangerous Corporations from Consumer Lawsuits - TYT reports

As we've discussed many times here on SO'W, when the mainstream media gets its knickers in a bunch and says, Look here look here! it behooves the American public to look in the opposite direction at the political machinations they're attempting to hide from our view via diversionary tactics.

The Young Turks's Farron Cousins reports:


Astrologically, we may wish to remember that the current 115th Congress began its tenure under the influence of a Fist of God (aka, Thor's Hammer) pattern if one doesn't mind counting the North Node of the Moon (NN, @4Virgo) as one point. In this case I believe it applies since the Cardinal Square between radical zealot Uranus in Aries and powerful saboteur Pluto in Capricorn forms the base of the Fist pattern which points toward the NN of the public.

We might even stretch to a midpoint picture between the three especially with the public discourse full these days with references to revolution:

Uranus-Pluto = NN: associations with others who share ideas on how to change the world through new approaches (M. Munkasey); and/or, teamwork pays off but egos are put first in line (N. Tyl).

Ebertin adds that the combination of Uranus and Pluto = collapse of the old order, construction of the new. What he doesn't add is the oppression, exploitation, and outright neglect of We the People who have little space remaining as it is on Washington's world domination agenda.

~~Corporatism + Statism = Fascism~~

Jan 12, 2017 Cancer Full Moon in a Cardinal Grand Cross

Politics, White House Transition, and the Revealing January 2017 Full Moon in Cancer

Today on my Jude Cowell Astrology blog I have posted a video report by Barbara Goldsmith on the January 12, 2017 Full Moon @22Cancer27 (posted there not here because I prefer not to change titles that people give their videos and this one is about 'Finding Love', something of a foreign concept in Washington DC political circles). This is a not-to-be-missed video!

This powerful Cancer Full Moon is the first lunation of the New Year and comes two weeks after the New Moon @7Capricorn59 (conjunct victim star Facies) of December 29, 2016 so that 2016 and 2017 are cosmically knitted together into one big hair shirt for the American people thanks to the ongoing train wreck they call the 'Trump Transition' and the specter of a Trump-Pence-Conway presidency looming on the 2017 horizon. That America is improved and not destroyed by Mr. Trump and his anti-government cohorts is my fervent hope for hope must always spring eternal, right?

Now the December 2016 New Moon and the January 2017 Full Moon charts may be viewed here where you can see that the New Moon is rising in the Full Moon chart set for Washington DC, a sign of the knitting together of which I grouse today. You'll see that the Cardinal Grand Cross is highlighted on the chart as well with the Jupiter-Uranus opposition emphasized and engaged in a BOWL shape with corporate CEO and political planet Jupiter in Libra as leader (and, I assume, signifying Mr. Trump, the Jupiterian character, wrestling promoter, newly formed politician, and broadcaster of wild theories he presents as 'facts' and tweets). Mr. Trump is currently enjoying his 12-year Jupiter Return reward cycle, a three-fer this time (dates are listed, below) and I do believe he's feelin' it.

Jan 4, 2017 Update: I neglected to mention that the Jan 12th Full Moon shines upon the natal Saturn of one Donald Trump posited in his 11th house of Groups and Associations. Plus, his Saturn conjoins Venus, a conjunction suggesting a serious focus on relationships but also dissatisfaction--will separation between associations come to light?

As for 2017's Cardinal Grand Cross (or Square), we may expect those in and about-to-be heads of government to act aggressively assertive and impatient which will result in quick but poorly planned actions. A lack of cooperation and assistance may occur (ex: The Resistance) unless these dynamic energies are harnessed by common sense and we've heard an echo of it in the charge (later walked back) by Trump that President Obama has messed with Trump's 'smooth' transition into the White, House. Mr. Trump is said to be a Freemason as many US presidents have been so in my book, Lodge it is. Plus, the presence of anarchic zealot Uranus in the Grand Cross configuration adds to its chaotic, extremist quality which has already been active thanks to the tiresomely ongoing Uranus-Pluto square.

Now astrologer Bil Tierney writes about the pitfalls of a Cardinal Grand Cross: reckless moves, bad timing (Trump's natal Moon-South Node conjunction supports a tendency toward bad timing), over-assertion, and head-on confrontations which should be avoided if ultimate success is the goal. A competitive spirit is very strong in the Cross which is composed of oppositions and squares yet learning to be more deliberate and thoughtful is necessary for best results. Situational crises will occur that call for decisive action and Trump's typical 'shoot from the hip' method will seldom suffice. Does this self-interested materialist Gemini have what it takes to stay the political course? Maybe not but reliance on theocrat Pence may be even worse for a nation founded on secular Enlightenment principles. If this all sounds like a major identity transformation of America is underway that's because it is. And the ongoing Jupiter-Uranus opposition has given Trump and his team the idea that the world is there for the taking--and they have and they will while the January 12th Full Moon, a phase of total awareness, forecasts the major reconstruction coming in 2020 via multiple planetary conjunctions.

Another cosmic message is provided us by the January 12, 2017 Full Moon in Cancer for it conjoins starry Pollux, key themes: danger of disgrace, cruelty, murder, rape, danger from women or poisons - A. Louis) and although 22Can27 is not within a one-degree orb of US natal Mercury Rx (July 4, 1776), the Sabian Symbol for US natal Mercury may be activated since we're talking about Politics Gone Wrong against the original intentions of 1776 so let's close with the symbol that conjures a vision of the pyramid of power and All-Seeing Eye of Horus (of total awareness, our surveillance state identified by the US natal Mercury-Pluto opposition) purposefully placed upon the obverse side of America's Great Seal and the backside of the dollar bill by Freemason FDR:

25 Cancer: "A Willful Man Is Overshadowed by a Descent of Superior Power" which Rudhyar explains as: 'a more transcendent expression of "success." It is not merely external success (as is given by society to its prima donnas), but a spiritual response, a sign of inner strength and uncommon ENDOWMENT." And Jones gives the descriptive, negative (shadow side) of this degree as: 'a tendency to unwarranted presumption if not outright megalomania'.

Ah, yes, the inner strength and megalomania of changeable Gemini Mr. Trump with his natal Uranus disrupting the 2nd hou$e of the Inauguration 2017 horoscope. What could possibly go wrong?


Dates of Donald Trump's Jupiter Return/s to 17Libra27 (Stationary Direct, thus strong, and posited in his 2nd house of Money and Values along with shady Neptune Rx @5Lib50 and wounded/wounding Chiron @14Lib54 conjunct US natal Saturn, planet of laws--Jupiter-Neptune is the inflationary/speculator/wastrel pair of fanciful dreams and exaggerated plans: 1. December 4, 2016; 2. April 13, 2017 Rx; 3. August 4, 2017; Jupiter in airy Libra says, "It's not fair!" This represents another 'knitting together' of 2016 and 2017.

A Major T-Square Marks Winter Solstice 2016

Winter Solstice 2016: Jupiter Opposes Uranus While Both Square Karmic Pluto

by Jude Cowell

Having previously viewed the Winter Solstice 2016 horoscope, you've noticed that expansive Jupiter in airy Libra will line up in opposition to radical Uranus in fiery Aries and, with apex Pluto in Capricorn, form a Cardinal T-Square of dynamic energies. Below again is the December 21, 2016 chart set for Washington DC and here is what I wrote about it way back in September before I knew what I didn't know then:

As you see, Jupiter rules the chart and the winter season on into 2017 but the first planet to rise is legalistic Saturn in Sagittarius, the sign ruled by Jupiter, suggesting delay, hindrance, or some other kind of limitation or suppression. Wealthy Pluto is in the 2nd house, which in American mundane charts points toward the coffers of the National Treasury and those who control or feed from it so naturally the role of 'the Fed' is indicated.

And with the pairing of Jupiter and Uranus in opposition, we may expect events to involve such matters and people as fortune hunters, adventurers or explorers, inventors, and perhaps those who organize large endeavors or projects. However, this planetary pair may also express via freedom and independence issues, philosophical arguments which may include zealotry and its one-sided viewpoints, obstinate adherence to principles that do not stem from real convictions, farsightedness, missing one's best chance, successful speculation, a blissful realization, and/or a fortunate turn in life.

A sudden release of tension may accompany any of these potentials and as always, an opposition (180 degrees) suggests a sort of culmination, fulfillment, or a situation in which complete awareness is forthcoming. See below, for dates when the 'Full Moon' of the Winter Solstice 2016 Jupiter-Uranus opposition had planted its seeds during their three-fer conjunction/s.

Jupiter-Pluto; Uranus-Pluto

Then there's apex Pluto, the isolationist, who can act as a dictator when plodding through Saturn-ruled Capricorn. Here His Creepiness continues a karmic role in the turbulent yet weakened Cardinal Uranus-Pluto Square while also squaring Jupiter, a marker for what may be overly high expectations that need dialing down if real progress is the aim. And while it may inspire some folk to take themselves very seriously, the Jupiter-Pluto square denotes a time when there are frustrations and obstacles in Politics, diplomacy, finances, publishing, religion, group organizing, and other cultural matters. In addition, energy consumption and supply (gas prices?) will continue to be in the news, and new forms of energy are part of the picture as well.

Although large projects are not necessarily doomed to failure under a Jupiter-Pluto square, higher authorities may interfere or refuse to authorize the project's needed funds; or, powermongers may challenge the influence or authority of others, particularly those who have boastfully exaggerated their own importance or their extraordinary strength. Abuse or misuse of power is a caution under the sway of this square, and curiously, Alan Oken has labeled the Jupiter-Pluto square as an aspect of "the false prophet."


By the second half of December 2016 the Jupiter-Pluto square will be past its orb of influence so now let's consider the Jupiter-Uranus opposition. As you know, their cycle began with three conjunctions, the first on June 8, 2010 (conjunct the Aries Point of Global Manifestation), the second on September 19, 2010 @28Pis43, and the third on January 4, 2011 @27Pis02. And since their cycle is about 14 years in duration, 2016 is imprinted with their opposition.

(Note: the next Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus won't occur until April 21, 2024 @21Tau50, a one-fer encounter).

Restlessness, a sense of adventure, and a deep thirst for knowledge and education usually accompany a Jupiter-Uranus contact along with scientific or other breakthroughs, and free or reduced college costs and loans in the US may be what is described here as well especially with powerful manipulator Pluto in a money house and squaring banking Jupiter and rebel Uranus.

All in all, Winter Solstice 2016 basically times Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto vibes to usher out 2016 and the trio sets us up for the start of 2017 so if you wish to read more information about the Jupiter-Uranus duo, I recommend Anne Whitaker's research study in book form Jupiter Meets Uranus: From Erotic Bathing to Star Gazing.

Violent Protests as rebel Uranus Returns to its Fascist Solar Eclipse degree

2016 Trends of Violence and Government Take-Over

by Jude Cowell

In February 2011, I posted the Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse horoscope of 1933 which you see, below. As the Campaign 2016 rallies of Republican candidate Donald Trump have forced violence into view and is being fully covered by the news media, we should note that transiting Uranus, America's totem planet of rebellion, revolt, revolution, shock, and disruption, is now in process of returning to its Mars-ruled Aries degree in the 1933 eclipse chart:

Added to the disruptive shock of the current Uranus Return (2016 to 1933) are the two interlaced YOD patterns with their turning point-crossroads-special task vibes of crisis. For more info on the Fascism Rising horoscope, here is my original post. You will note other current transits to the planets of 1933 and, of course, the recurring Uranus-Pluto square (Aries square Cancer in 1933) of a titanic generational clash as we've been experiencing again in this, the New Millennium, but with Pluto in Capricorn (signature of 'the dictator'). It seems to me that megalomaniac Trump's rhetoric triggers the violent Marseillaise Mars-Jupiter-Neptune trio to march again to the Bastille with fists and elbows ready to strike all who disagree.

Now as you know, Uranus in Aries is the blind zealot and fanatic anarchist (Ebertin) and along comes candidate Trump born under Mars Rising with kingmaker star Regulus in tow--in egoistic Leo. Mr. Trump has made himself a willing vessel for violent Mars-Uranus energies that seek expression in our era for we know that fascist authoritarian elements in the Collective never disappear completely, they simply cower in darkness in preparation for another government take-over attempt as they re-arm to fight another day.

Why Isn’t Ted Cruz Being Crucified For His Role in the Govt Shutdown? video

This question that has haunted me since Ted Cruz announced his bid to run for president of the country after leading the theatrical charade of shutting down the government for 16 days for the purpose of making an ideological point. Why does no one mention the quirkiness of a man wanting to run a government he shut down because of an anti-societal notion--and reading children's books in mockery of the US Senate?

A related Natal Astrology post: Senator Ted Cruz: a "crusader dueling with shadows".

All this tea party anarchist rhetoric and its code words used in Campaign 2016 puts me in mind of the Cardinal Square Solar Eclipse of July 2010, the year that rebellious Uranus electrified the Mars-ruled Aries Point of Manifestation, transit Jupiter of corporatism came along and joined in, and tea party candidates infiltrated Capitol Hill which eventually made possible the Cruz-led shut down of the US government. And of course, the separating Cardinal Square between Uranus and Pluto continues triggering generational stand-offs as 40-something politicians challenge The Establishment of the Republican Party.

Yet there is not such a generational battle for Democrats in Campaign 2016 where Grandma and Grandpa are struggling for the Dem nomination!

The Billionaires' Tea Party - Trailer (w/ Uranus in Aries 2010/2016)

When Uranus in transit entered Mars-ruled Aries in late May 2010 it timed many events related to revolt, protest, even riots. Disruption is one of planet Uranus' favorite past times and since 2010 the world has not been disappointed. And for America's 2010 Solar Return in July, Uranus performed a Station Retrograde precisely on the Aries Point (00:00) which, for those who use US natal charts set for a few minutes after 5:00 pm LMT on July 4, 1776 (Phildelphia, PA), announced Uranus in Aries entering America's 4th house of Home--but also the house of Endings and The Drain (IC).

The disruptive shift into US 4th house occurred around the time that the Tea Party rose to public awareness with Uranus in Aries denoting Utopian anarchists and blind zealots (Ebertin). Then as now, everyone continued to agree that America was following a wrong path and some accepted the propaganda that the 'grassroots' movement called the Tea Party could cure politically and socially what ailed us as a nation--and reform Washington Politics where the global criminal syndicate is centered. The last time period that Uranus traveled through Aries was from 1928 to 1934 which of course includes disruptive events and turbulent interventions such as World War I, the Market Crash of October 29, 1929, the rise of Hitler and FDR, fascism taking over Italy--while transit Neptune's continuing path through Virgo, sign of The Worker, helped to undermine employment and social conditions for millions of people--especially since America's natal Neptune is in Virgo (22+).

Of course in 1929, Uranus squared Pluto but Pluto was in Cancer then (transformation of family values), opposite Pluto's current sojourn through the governmental, legal, and business-oriented sign of Capricorn, ruled by tough Saturn. Social upheaval has reappeared under the New Millennium's Uranus-Pluto Cardinal square as extreme measures are being pushed through Congress (many of them hidden within legislation to be discovered and despised later on), fanaticism is prevalent from many directions, and war and weaponry are lifted high as Nationalism and Patriotism are again used by the power elite as shields for hiding an agenda of global conquest. Meanwhile, Pluto in Capricorn = the dictator, according to Ebertin, and from Washington and across the nation we've heard accusations of such behavior by Obama opponents yet my suspicion is that we ain't seen nuthin' yet in that department--wait till Donald Trump (or whoever) takes the Oath of Office on January 20, 2017! Only Senator Bernie Sanders seems genuine to me but we'll see how that goes with primaries about to begin.

Be all of that as it may or may not be, check out the following trailer for The Billionaires' Tea Party and marvel at the political chicanery of the plutocrats:


Related posts include: Horoscope: Solar Eclipse of the Roaring Twenties and Horoscope: the Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse of 1933 which includes 2011 conditions such as anarchists like Ted Cruz play acting our nation into a credit downgrade. But that's a hammy 'President' Green Eggs for ya--'burning down the world' like a true Uranus-in-Aries zealot with ideological Utopian leanings of theocratic proportions.

Flint Residents Are Getting Past Due Notices For Poisoned Water Bills - video (w Astrology)

Flint's overdue water bills are a sick joke in this situation. Can child poisoner Governor Snyder be any more criminal toward the people of Flint, Michigan? He and his cronies act more like a criminal syndicate than an elected government. Oh wait. Too often they're the same thing:

Flint Michigan Water Contaminated with Poisonous Lead Since April 2014

In April 2014 the water supply of Flint became contaminated with lead, Saturn's metal. The corrosive water that 'city management' switched to corroded the linings of old water pipes--meanwhile, overhead, Jupiter and Pluto opposed one another. This pair of planets is one of the plutocrat indicators and when they are in opposition we can deduce a few tendencies and conditions in effect in April 2014.

Both Jupiter and Pluto relate to large amounts of money and the switch to a substandard water source for Flint was done to 'save costs'. Lead-lover Saturn was in Scorpio at that time, sign of betrayal and secrets. Saturn was also in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn with Pluto planet of the Underworld and Criminal Elements, and Capricorn the sign of government, law, business...and loss. And of course, Pluto rules pipes, tunnels, caves, and hidden places. The people of Flint were betrayed by a criminal element in order to save money though in my estimation, pocket lining was more the objective.

Now here are some traits to expect from Jupiter-Pluto when their energies are combined according to Reinhold Ebertin:

Desire for power (plutocracy); pursuit of fanatical aims; desire to exploit the masses; organizers handling large projects; squanderers; speculators; teachers or professors of economics or law.

At the time, Pluto and anarchist Uranus were more closely embroiled in their ongoing Cardinal Square than they are at the moment and rebellious Uranus was apex planet of the Jupiter-Pluto opposition. This created a T-Square which Ebertin says has these potentials: quick exploitation of every situation, fanatical striving for improvement, sudden reform, quick development, adjustment to new circumstances.

A Jupiter-Pluto opposition identifies those who force their own dogma upon others and who seek positions of power in order to more effectively manage the lives of other people. Arrogance, pomposity, and illegalities of those in power demonstrate that their 'social values' (assuming they have them at all) are out of tune with the rest of society (who prefer healthy, un-poisoned children). These Jupiter-Pluto types work to gain financial control over others as an 'additional pressure on their destinies' (R. Pelletier).

Apparently, the facts of the case and the Astrology of it indicate that committing illegal enterprises offered the governor "better returns" (RP). And yet--the society he and his cronies have betrayed and poisoned can also take action against them through restriction, impeachment, arrest and imprisonment if it comes to that. There were big risks involved in this sneaky Jupiter-Pluto endeavor but the risks were all on the side of the people and children of Flint as long as Snyder's actions could remain unaddressed and out of the mainstream press. As can be expected from the culpable, in Snyder's remarks this week he has attempted to spread the blame upon local officials--who had been replaced by unelected 'managers'. And some citizens have said Snyder has much to do to regain the people's respect. Personally, I think that's much too generous toward the men who poisoned thousands of innocent people and seized power like fascists and anarchists will do -- all for the sake of money and some weird ideology of power over the masses that they know better than to speak honestly about in public.

Dec 6, 2015 The President Addresses the Nation on Keeping the American People Safe

In case you missed it:


President Obama Speaks and Is Mindful of The Importance of Being Earnest

by Jude Cowell

If you know about or have read lately about the current Mars-Uranus opposition which now squares powerful manipulator Pluto (Dec 6 - 10) then you know that this evening's TV address by President Obama delivered from the White House (to show how serious he is) fits right in with the T-Square's dynamic, intense energies.

Mars-Uranus, Mars-Pluto, Uranus-Pluto--all three pairs combine into explosive, forceful, aggressive actors designed to catch attention and rearrange present conditions into something more chaotic, even brutal. Naturally, military action is denoted as well along with warriors of all stripes joining battles, initiating conflicts, and fighting until the end. Challenges are issued and accepted!

These planetary conditions now reflecting events on the earthly plane (As Above, So Below) describe what I have been dreading for some time but these are not all that was on display tonight as President Obama spoke. He began at 8:00 pm est with his natal Mercury 2Leo19 rising though Ascending was a lunar 28Can47 and this degree of Cancer places US natal Pluto Rx @27Cap33 setting on the Descendant of Partnerships and Alliances; US natal Mercury Rx @25Cancer had risen and was traversing the 12th house of Politics and Karma by 8:00 pm.

Soon after he began, the president's natal Sun 12Leo32 arose and there are several planetary hints that self-promotion was one of his goals as he adapted his visions and perspectives for presentation to the public (Mars-Neptune = Mercury) on the topic of ISIS and terrorism. The need to fulfill dangerous tasks was communicated and flavored with what passes for stark realism in US Politics though many conditions and associated affairs remain private and not open to public scrutiny (Saturn-Pluto = Mercury.) As you know, Mercury is the planet of communication, speeches, messages, young people, and journalists (or what passes for them these days) so they have their parts to fulfill in what was very much a role-playing event tonight--bully pulpit and all that, promoting the US perspective on things.

Hmmm...young people. Was this speech also meant as an outreach to inspire young people (including women who can now become combatants) to sign up for duty? More troops are needed, say neocon war hawks. Pass the canon fodder!

If so, President Obama showed shrewdness tonight as he presented what are basically over-expansive ideas (transit Jupiter, planet of expansion, now conjunct his natal Mars, planet of warriors, war, and action.) However, you may have noticed a lack of coping ability melded with the shrewdness which made a very odd mixture. On one level, this may be due to Mr. Obama's natal Mars being shrouded and clouded by US natal Neptune, both @22Virgo and the conjunction now has quite a pile-up of energies in the 20--22 Virgo area of the Zodiac: the current Solar Eclipse (September 13, 2015 @20Vir10) provides a high stress level and an overtaxing of strength influence (Brady), transiting Jupiter as noted @21Vir38 tonight increases it all, and fixed star Denebola (to go against society; against the mainstream) springs more fully into action, triggered by Jupiter.

Another concern is the Cardinal Grand Cross now brought into manifestation by the above noted Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-square (thanks to Mars joining in) which adds explosive force and ruthless brutality to US natal Sun @13Cancer (POTUS) for as you know, US natal Sun has been opposed by transiting Pluto for some time now with its 'titanic power struggle and challenge' implications. Tonight's speech was part of taking control of the situation where 'destroying ISIS' is concerned. And it may be no coincidence (for nothing really is) that in recent weeks and certainly this very evening--two descriptive asteroids (archetypes) are traveling in tandem at 22Libra: Nemesis and Isis, with Nemesis having 'the unbeatable foe' and 'divine retribution' flavors. Note that just who is actually behind the creation of ISIS (ISIL) is beyond the scope of this post.

For the US, this deadly East vs West battle calls for more organization and structure (transit Mars @14Libra conjunct US natal Saturn at IC, the Basis of the Matter) and as tonight's Moon @24Libra approaches Venus @2Sco11 (preparing for the holidays?), we might better find a clue in the Uranus-MC (8:00 pm est) conjunction with the MC as the Goal Point of the speech's horoscope: 'strife or radical movements which force new internal policies or methods' (a new agenda), a strategy we've seen used before--most notably after the attacks of 9/11/01 and the ready-to-go US Patriot Act, plus, preemptive war and occupation, and other policy changes distorting the character and principles of our nation. Now that's what has resulted in what I would call a Crippled America--crippled by fascist traitors and infiltrators.

Though he mentioned destroying ISIS and not giving into fear, the Astrology I'm seeing in the speech horoscope shows the fostering of paranoia for political control of the people via Mars at the IC (Endings; The Drain: Death.) Is Election 2016 part of Washington's political calculations? Now this wouldn't be surprising since it's been done successfully before (ex: 'bin Laden tapes' released just before election day.) Yet whatever the motive/s, tonight's speech will probably be fairly well received with chart-ruler Moon first sextiling Mercury (0A27), then conjoining popular Venus (7A22). Round up speech-maker Mercury's degree to 26 Sagittarius and we have "A Flag-Bearer in Battle" (Jones) which supports the president's expansive agenda in the Middle East along with more young people joining the military, if and as they may.

Washington's stubborn refusal to recognize its limitations bodes ill for many

Tragically for innocent people both here and abroad, it likely will take more than the Paris and the San Bernadino attacks to 'justify' the draconian changes the power elite (and those who direct them from behind the scenes) are determined to force upon us. After all, transiting Uranus, planet of anarchy, chaos, disruption, and shock, has been opposing US natal Saturn for a while now and this describes a 'new order' vs 'old order' stand-off and the collapse of traditional institutions--along with de-structuring Pluto now in structure-building Capricorn and plodding his way toward America's first-ever Pluto Return/s in 2022.

ISIS is "part of a cult of death," said President Obama tonight which is obviously true. And of course I am on America's side yet it amazes me how a drone-striker president projects such a mote into the eye of 'the other guy' while ignoring the beam in his--in our--own.


Speaking of the anti-constitutional US Patriot Act, remember in May 2011 when President Obama authorized its extension via auto-pen while on a visit to France with US natal Pluto rising?

The job of herding Republican House cats is now open due to John Boehner's announcement today that he'll step down from the speaker's position at the end of October but I must confess to loathing the idea that Ted Cruz has gotten something he wanted.

Natal YOD of NYSE activated by Trading Halt July 8, 2015

July 8, 2015 Strife on Wall Street: The NYSE Experiences a Major 'Halt' of Trading

by Jude Cowell

The founding data of the New York Stock Exchange is based on the 'Buttonwood Agreement' of May 17, 1792 but it's the NYSE Reorganization horoscope of May 11, 1869 that contains a crisis-laden YOD pattern with a Uranus-Pluto sextile pointing toward natal Saturn Rx @15Sag33. The YOD was activated or triggered at the halt of trading yesterday (July 8, 2015 11:32 am edt NYC). Apparently there was a crisis in 1869 which required the 1792 stock exchange to be reorganized and those energies have carried forth into 2015, always subject to transits and progressions.

Both horoscopes (1792 and 1869) remain operative for the Wall Street casino they call the NYSE and though the trading volume of the exchange is much less than it once was (10% these days but only 2% at 11:32 am yesterday!), the crisis situation of the "internal tech glitch" that shut down their computers after a morning of lower volume and messages sent out concerning gateway issues resonates with the implications of a natal YOD and the pattern's crisis/turning point and special task connotations. Even the health of the NYSE and other markets around the globe could be affected by yesterday's halt. Will there be more such events to come?

Since natal Saturn (1869) is in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius, we know that the gentry of the NYSE like to retain their control, authority, and power which were lost for 3 hours and 38 minutes yesterday as technicians worked to bring the exchange back to life (reopened at 3:10 pm edt with the transiting Pluto-Chiron midpoint of Plutocracy exactly conjunct IC). This position for Saturn also denotes those for whom reputation is of primary importance, and pundits began speaking of loss of confidence and the image of the NYSE while the outage was in progress. No doubt we will hear more of such suppositions as the story plays out in the media.

Besides the YOD emphasis on the 1869 Saturn, the planet is also the 'handle' of a Bucket pattern of planets and as such, provides a release point for the natal energies (planets) in the horoscope and shows an uncompromising direction of the NYSE's purpose with undertones of the Jupiterian influence of Sagittarius. That Jupiter and Saturn are the 'societal planets' and their cycle relates to markets, investments, and finances spotlights their basic expansion vs restriction principles of our dualistic world.

A further consideration underscoring the Uranus-Pluto-Saturn YOD in the 1869 natal chart is the ongoing Uranus-Pluto Cardinal Square (Aries to Capricorn) under which the world has been groaning with its last exact square on March 16, 2015 and more of its unrest and upset to come. In addition, we may wish to detail the potentials of the midpoint picture formed by the trio in the YOD which was activated by yesterday's Sun @16Can00--and instigator Mars @9Can26, out-of-bounds and representing an out-of-the-mainstream element that may have instigated a hack attack:

Uranus-Pluto = Saturn: exposure to extreme pressure from others; self-will; egosim; hatred (Ebertin); persisting despite obstacles on the path toward reform (Munkasey); tendency toward autocratic leadership; "my way is the best way"; pressure from others; toppled from position (Tyl.)

Plus, hidden hints exist if we substitute the natal Uranus @14Can26 conjunct US natal Sun and SIRIUS) with yesterday's transiting triggers, Sun and Mars (planet of attacks including those of a 'hacked' variety):

Sun-Pluto = Saturn:separation by a higher power; ruthless overcoming of obstacles; restriction (imprisonment) (Ebertin); a potential for fanatical ventures or destructive tendencies (Munkasey); potential loss through power struggle (Tyl.)

Mars-Pluto = Saturn: leaving no stone unturned in pursuit of a particular task (Ebertin); lessened personal power (Munkasey); hard, hard work; extraordinary discipline is needed and usually pays off (Tyl.)

Well, there's my brief analysis of yesterday's NYSE crisis as viewed through the lens of the 1869 YOD with its 'special task' and crisis potential. There is much more to consider in both the 1792 and the 1869 reorganization horoscopes so perhaps you may set them up and have a look, and if you do, you'll spy the Halt's restrictive Saturn Rx @28Sco45 sitting precisely upon the NYSE's 1792 IC, the Point of Endings, Separation, and The Drain!

Mar 16, 2015 12 am: US hits debt ceiling with Sun Pisc-Moon Cap vibes

Yes, at midnight tonight it's debt ceiling time again and the US Congress has been privileged to set such a limit since 1939. The limitation doesn't mean more budget-busting spending, it means satisfying obligations the US government has already taken on and neglecting these burdens is what led to America's credit downgrade in 2011, finagled mainly by anti-Obama Republicans in Congress.

Therefore, unless Congress changes its tune, the US treasury can't satisfy creditors as of March 16, 2015--the very date of the final (of 7 total) exact Cardinal Squares between revolutionary Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries and powerful wealth-hoarder Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business. In the Eastern Time Zone, the Uranus-Pluto squares perfects at 10:54 pm.

And with dissolving, fraudulent Neptune now strong in its own sign of Pisces, the undermining of the US system of government insinuates on under the speculator-spendthrift pair of Jupiter-Neptune ruling and co-ruling murky, often deceptive Pisces.

The conscious-unconscious vibes of the debt ceiling situation of the moment are Sun Pisces-Moon Capricorn, a practical Water-Earth combo of energies that is shared natally by Freemason George Washington who advised us to, "Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company."

Hopefully, the current blend's practicality concerning the March 2015 debt ceiling issue will be victorious over the zealous anarchists in Congress who apparently care little or nothing for America's reputation or credit-worthiness. Now if only such anti-government 'bad company' could be removed from Capitol Hill and take their billionaire social tinkerers and National Zionists with them!

Related: Types of Zionism, one of the many Pluto-Chiron -isms of oppression, exploitation, and primal violence. You'll note that transiting Pluto and Chiron, the Plutocracy pair, last met in Great Conjunction in November 1999 as one of civilization's cosmic 'ushers' into the New Millennium. Their conjunction in Sagittarius hit America's natal Ascendant in the July 4, 1776 5:10 pm 'Sibly' horoscope and soon the trumped up 'war on terror' began.

Also on topic is a previous post concerning the March 20, 2015 Solar Eclipse and Washington DC's neglected burdens.

Italy warned Libyan jihadists are ‘just south of Rome’ (plus, Eclipses)

Media reports tell us that the city of Rome is now under threat by jihadists looking to settle a very old score as the next world war brews. Wonder if the pope is feeling anxious?

From The Independent: Italy warned Libyan jihadists are 'just south of Rome'.

Fears in Italy of an imminent Islamic terror attack mounted after Libya-based Isis affiliates warned the jihadist group was now "just south of Rome".

The old East vs West conflict replays in the New Millennium as the East uses extreme violence to establish its own version of 'global governance'...just as Western 'new world order' promoters knew they would. To me it seems the influence of the August 11, 1999 Solar Eclipse is starkly revealed by such brutality and power struggles. As you know, this is the eclipse Nostradamus emphasized, the one with its *Oxen, Lion, Eagle, and Angel Points featured as noted in the Book of Revelation---when the angels 'let go the winds of war'. And war is precisely what has been unleashed thanks to power elite politicians, their enablers and financial backers, and "insurgents" as Washington prefers to call them.

Of course, we in the West use our own blend of brutality, violence, torture, snipers, assassinations, and bombs, don't we? And it's usually veiled by propaganda such as "spreading democracy". Even western sanctions against other nations via the UN may starve and kill; meanwhile millions of refugees are created and many are knocking on western doors.

Currently Jupiter now traverses Rx and Direct through the sign of Leo so the planet of increase and expansion now affects the degree (18Leo) of the 1999 "King of Terror" Eclipse (or, 'King of Alarm' Eclipse including financial crises) which is also called the 'Mother of All Eclipses' in the 1 North Saros Series which began on January 4, 1639 @13Cap48. At the least, we now have two sensitized degrees from the 1N Series: 18Leo and 13Cap long with their opposite degrees (18AQ and 13Cancer--the degree of America's natal Sun on July 4, 1776.) Yes, there are rules for the duration of influence for eclipses but to me, this eclipse's powerful affects are ongoing for all of humanity.

As you know, assassin Pluto, powerful and wealthy representative of The Underworld and of the Pope, now creeps through Capricorn and has opposed US natal Venus, Jupiter, and most recently, US natal Sun (the president). You do not need Astrology to tell you about the major conflicts and government topplings the transformative Pluto transit describes in an As Above, So Below fashion for the news media tells plutonian tales 24/7.

1N themes include a caution against making hasty decisions because information is 'distorted and possibly false' and 'unexpected events' along with fatigue and health problems (Brady.) Sometimes it seems the US government has lost any ability it ever had to tell the truth to the public. Not that Washington is the only one using falsehood as a tactic to get its way.

Adding to the intensity is the ongoing Cardinal Square between Uranus and Pluto, the revolutionary pair. Their 7th and last exact square occurs on March 16, 2015 though sighs of relief on that date would be premature.

Events and people born under the 1N Series include: the UN, the first atomic bomb attack, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and Washington Irving, author of Sleepy Hollow, a novel that now inspires a FOX TV show of the same name which uses such themes as prophecy, horsemen and the Apocalypse, demonic possession, a 'new world order', life vs death, reincarnation, satanism and witchcraft, and Witnesses. Needless to say, the atmosphere of and the events occurring on Sleepy Hollow ring out with vibes of the outer planets, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, with Mars, god of war, nearby.

And I might even say that the Solar Eclipse of August 11, 1999 influences the show's themes, too. Someone is certainly placing these dark themes within the Collective Unconscious with the satanic 'entertainment' fare we're constantly fed.

Here listed are the Solar Eclipses of 2015, 2016, and 2017 with a few details; #6 is the next manifestation in the 1 North Series.

*Mid-degrees of Taurus (oxen), Leo (Lion), Scorpio (eagle), and Aquarius (angel).

Astrology Predictions 2015 - 2016 by Barbara Goldsmith

As related here by astrologer Barbara Goldsmith, the Cardinal Square between generational planets Uranus and Pluto makes its final exact aspect on March 16, 2015, the seventh perfection of seven. Let's see what Barbara has to say about this and other planetary events as Earth plows through the Cosmos toward year 2016:

SOTU 2015: Cyber Uranus and Mercury-Jupiter's "political games"

A SOTU 2015 Address, Mercury Stations Rx, and Two More Years

by Jude Cowell

For President Obama's annual State of the Union Address to a Joint Session of Congress, I'm looking at the 9:00 pm est horoscope set for January 20, 2015 Capitol Building Washington. My focus is on planets Mercury, Jupiter, Moon, Sun, Saturn, a few midpoint pictures, and on the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square (social unrest, violence, revolution, Civil Rights, major reforms, old v new) in contact with the undulating Nodal axis of the Moon, a past-future destiny indicator often called the Dragon with the North Node as the head (future direction) and South Node the tail (of past behaviors, the unconscious, and inherited or well developed talents).

(You will, of course, spy other chart factors of note but this post has to end sometime!)

One good place to watch is

In the 9:00 pm horoscope pictured below, the transiting combo of disruptive Uranus @12Ari57 conjunct South Node is poised upon the cusp of the monied 8th house (Corporations, Transformation, Insurance, Credit, Debt, the Occult, Surveillance, etc) and the 2nd house of the National Treasury is favored by the NN. The president will tout the economic progress of the last 6 years. Yet with astrological Uranus, technological and surveillance matters such as cyber attacks, a Mars influence via Aries are brought to mind (Saturn-Neptune = Uranus). This midpoint picture also applies to President Obama's speech in Iowa on Wednesday January 14 on his plan to "challenge state laws that limit the expansion of high-speed broadband access" in rural areas. (Saturn-Neptune = socio-economically challenged people). Additionally, lightening fast micro trades and the current ups and downs of the NYSE are spotlighted plus the potential for sudden changes of fortune for some.

And on January 15th it was reported that there are major losses and shock at the Swiss National Bank.

Hacker Genius Uranus, God of Technological Progress!

Now tell the White House's progressive techno access plan to facilitate better spying on small town folk whose lack of internet access allows them to 'slip through the net' of the government? Hmm-m-m...please pardon suspicious of the suspicious me!

Meanwhile, perhaps you heard this tech news concerning a lawsuit against large players Google and Apple for colluding against their employees. Has the Saturnian tail of the Dragon swiped a few tech giants and high flying brokers? Astrological Uranus can act early, on time, late, or never, after all and there may be more to come though they'll recover well enough.

If you wish, read a few previous unedited thoughts of a predictive nature concerning the critical-degreed (12 Aries) January 20th Uranus-South Node meeting and SOTU 2015 posted just as the January 20th date was announced. Earlier a pundit or two had even suggested that the Republican-led 114th Congress would fail to send the president the annual invitation to address them as a sign of their usual disrespect, however, Speaker Boehner came through in spite of the desires of certain factions of the party.

As you know, difficult energies of the ongoing Cardinal Square between Uranus and Pluto have been seriously affecting people of every nation and not the least, triggering America's natal chart via our national Saturn in mid-Libra opposed by tr Uranus = old order v new order), tr Pluto opposing US natal Sun (power challenges for the president--and vice versa to some degree), and tr Uranus squaring US natal Sun (others control issues, will power to succeed is tested or challenged). Basically, this cosmic circumstance activates our natal Sun-Saturn square with natal Sun @13Can19 conjunct Egyptian star Sirius, the goddess star of Venus-Isis, aka, the dog star (keywords: the mundane becomes sacred; the scorcher).

So with progressive futurist Uranus conjoining tr SN (a Saturnian point of separation), tr NN @12Lib48 is precisely 2 degrees past conjunction with US natal Saturn (14Lib48) which gives the above indicator of Uranus opposite US natal Saturn a 'contact with the masses' flavor and a sense of fatedness attached, thanks to both the Nodal axis and karmic Saturn. On the level of the Collective Unconscious, this sense of fatedness comes in part from decades of propaganda by politicians, authors, film makers, financiers, and the complicit media touting a 'new world order' and 'global government' said to be inevitable. Perhaps so, yet the Uranus-SN--US-Saturn trio is merely a signpost along the way to their Utopian goal, not its destination--though the sign may be painted in ALL CAPs when worrywarts like yours truly read it.

Now let's have a brief look at basic factors in the SOTU 2015 horoscope with emphasis on the chart-ruler's applying Ptolemaic aspects, if any, for clues on how the president's address, proposals, and announcements ('shocking' as they may be!) will proceed:

Please tap or click to enlarge image for notes that may not be included in this text for the sake of brevity. Note: the horoscope is mistakenly set for the White House but should be set for the Capitol Building therefore, each cusp shows here a difference of 1 to 2 minutes of arc and all degrees and planetary positions remain as you see due to the close locations of the buildings.

Hour of the Sun (goals); a new cycle of activity has begun with the New (Syzygy) Moon @00AQ08 which perfects on January 20th at 8:14 am est and conjoins not only the US Inaugural Sun (POTUS) (suggesting a culmination of some sort)--but means that SOTU 2015 will be delivered on Inauguration 2009's 6th Solar Return and conjoins 2009's Mercury Rx. You'll remember that Mr. Obama took the oath twice in 2009 because of Justice Roberts' flub (alleged flub!). Plus, Sun @00AQ41 is a solar transit to Barack Obama's natal Jupiter Rx in his 12th house of Politics defining a time of expansive plans, extended horizons, favored judicial actions or decisions, courage, pride, and confidence--just as both his presidential terms have been. Yet Inaugural 2009 Mercury shouted that his opponents would challenge his ideas and plans and be impossible to 'corral' (tr Mercury oppo natal Mercury in Leo).

Yet on an outer level, the Sun to natal Jupiter transit may likely inspire overconfidence and misguided expansion since dramatic Leo is involved and his natal Jupiter is Rx. As 2015 Jupiter moves backward in Zodiacal degrees, Mr. Obama's natal Sun @12Leo will again be conjoined (see below). Jupiter to natal Sun is the 12-year indicator when something begun 12 years before must be increased or discontinued all together--he was compelled by higher-ups to continue US occupation and other military actions in the Middle East (while pretending to end them) though Gitmo prison is in process of being emptied at last--and of course, Republicans disagree.

As for matters of war and conflicts, the SOTU 2015 chart does show Mr. Obama's natal Mars @22Virgo rising and, as always, obscured by US natal Neptune--with America's natal Mars in the very visible 10th house (US military used as global cop).

Jupiter Carries a Big Bucket

Leonine Jupiter Rx, here isolated in the hidden 12th house of Politics, remains the handle planet of a Bucket pattern and as such reveals where primary Jupiterian interests and future direction lie while linking together the two halves of the chart.

Another chart consideration involves Jupiter's broadcasting function for the rising midpoint of Jupiter-NN signifies the address itself and denotes responses made to others who are separate--such as public contact with ivory-towered politicians, or the 'Grand Old Party' rebuttal that comes in response. Plus, when Jupiter-NN energies combine we find such things as closed legal societies and/or a legal system hampered by erroneous decisions about the status of groups or parties! Religious leaders involved in Politics, imports that disrupt trade or business (TPP?), and consequences from treaties with allies are potentials. (Munkasey).

Mars-Neptune's 'Fog of War'...again

Now the final dispositor of all the planets ('actors') is mystical, foggy Neptune @5Pis57, planet of Islam, in its own sign of Pisces and posited in the 6th house of Military, Police, Health, Work, Civil Service, and Daily Tasks denoting that something is hidden, mysterious, fraudulent, and/or non-transparent in one or more of these areas--and in the SOTU address. Perhaps this is only a 'lack of, or inattention to, details' circumstance (see below) but in Politics (that 'organized system of hatreds') actions and omissions are usually much more purposeful than that.

One clue is that warrior Mars @6Pis46 has just left his meeting with insinuating Neptune and this suggests a charismatic male or groups (exs: ISIS/ISIL, military or entertainment figures, crooks) with tendencies toward hidden attacks, deception, lack of trustworthiness, dissolution, or misguided or inspired actions. However, rashness is cautioned against since hastiness will be certain to lead to disappointment in any or all 6th house matters as a new Mars-Neptune cycle begins--and this includes deceptive or misguided attacks on Obamacare.

Plus, we may wish to note that this position of transit Neptune conjoins President Obama's natal 1st house Chiron Rx (5:19), the guru, priest, seeker, healer centaur. Actually, a Neptune-Chiron melding may also show a double emphasis on a particular blind spot. Is the identity of a presidential mentor veiled? Is the president the mentor? Perhaps someone is providing inspiration from 'on high' as the White House acts under orders from afar and an out-of-touch character to the president's activities may continue to be noticed.

As you see, transit Saturn @2Sag42 in 3rd house of Communications conjoins the 'Sequestration--Super Congress' Solar Eclipse (2Sag37) of November 25, 2011 (chart shown) so the karmic planet of delay, loss, and well-deserved rewards triggers the eclipse with its 'peculiar turn of events' flavor which continues to affect both financial projects and relationships. (Brady).

Another financial indicator for SOTU 2015 is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series it falls into which you see marked @00Sco24 in the 2nd house of the National Treasury (17 New North) for the Series has 'hectic activities; financial projects' vibes with a Scorpionic emphasis on such areas as Big Business, intense force (Mars-Pluto), hidden matters, research, operations (medical and military), and opportunities for Regeneration.

Then there's the Uranus-NN midpoint of radical politics, here activated by tr Pluto (novel solutions update old thinking) and by US natal Sun (impressions left by implementing reforms) which combine to form an intense Cardinal Cross if we include the Nodal axis. Yet there are those who endeavor to protect traditional procedures from radical reforms and we may think of Republicans' renewed **attacks on America's social safety net programs for the aged, poor, ill, and disabled.

Challenges of Mercury opposite Jupiter: GOP v POTUS

As for chart and MC ruler Mercury in its Station Rx condition (turning Rx Jan 21 @10:54 am est), Mercury the Orator 'applies' to only one aspect: an opposition to Jupiter Rx which conjoins the 12th cusp, the house of Secret Deals and Hidden Enemies (as well as Politics and Karma already mentioned above). So does Mercury on the verge of seemingly changing direction actually apply? The proceedings spotlighted by SOTU 2015 are more complex than that for Mercury and Jupiter will engage in a dance opposite one another for a while--we could say they'll 'circle' one another--so that their relationship is the pertinent aspect determining the results of SOTU 2015 and the proposals announced therein.

Mercury-Jupiter: August 2014--July 2015

Now the current Mercury-Jupiter cycle began when they conjoined in early Leo during the first week of August 2014, a Mercury Return for President Obama and a time of expanded plans for him (Jupiter to natal Mercury). In *Politics and Business we find that a combination of Mercury and Jupiter leans toward communicating about such areas as: growth and expansion plans, business matters or legal affairs that affect commerce and transport, religious and philosophical ideals, and/or scholarship that is censored by religious leaders who have political aspirations. Probably not up for public airing by the president (yet perhaps will be mentioned in the Republican rebuttal to SOTU 2015 performed by Sen. Joni Ernst, the hog castrator) will be a strained budget due to over expansion, a constant soapbox of the GOP when expansion threatens to benefit the common good of our nation.

So with their SOTU 2015 opposition issuing from their August 2014 conjunction and showing a 'Full Moon' phasal relationship, here are the directional changes and degrees of planning Mercury the trader and investing Jupiter the politician and banker as their challenging dance of stalemate/awareness is performed:

January 20, 2015: SOTU 2015 is delivered and marks the beginning of the last two years of the Obama presidency; Inauguration 2009's Solar Return exact at 11:02:39 pm est with Jupiter-Saturn on Ascendant revealing 'the tactician'.

Morning of Jan 21, 2015: SOTU Mercury turns Rx @17AQ05 opposing Jupiter Rx @19Leo46 (affecting SOTU 2015 and the Obama Presidency's 6th Solar Return; this echoes Mr. Obama's natal Mercury-Jupiter opposition across the early Leo-AQ axis). Potentials during this opposition include: harboring fantastical plans, a lack of attention to details hidden in the 'small print' which may lead to loss, making irresponsible remarks or unrealistic proposals, someone 'backing out', a search for easy solutions or methods, following a myriad of interests which scatters one's energies, and reviewing, retracting, or redefining and clarifying goals. Plus, others may be insincere in their declarations and/or legal entanglements may not go as well as hoped.

Note that in regard to SOTU 2015, Republicans in Congress have stated that the president is the one "stopping progress" and playing "political games"---well, it 'takes two to tango' doesn't it? And here we see the R v D game played out in the Cosmos by a Mercury-Jupiter tango! Yet we must look at the results and ultimate consequences of political actions and not what they say or don't say if we wish to see what was really intended. Meanwhile, the titanic power struggle continues (tr Pluto oppo US natal Sun) though it's true nature is seldom if ever revealed to the public.

On February 11, 2015, Mercury Stations Direct @1AQ19 showing that a Mercury Return to the 114th Congress' January 6, 2015 chart has just occurred--US Congress' Mercury @2AQ31 and this transit emphasizes the president's proposals and the GOP response to SOTU 2015. At SOTU Mercury's Station Direct, tr Jupiter remains Rx @16Leo55 so the phase of Mercury-Jupiter is at an obsessive-compulsive quindecile stage (165 degrees) denoting tendencies for grandiose thinking, bias, idealism and ideology to drive motivations including religious fervor (Reeves). For the president, Mercury opposes natal Mercury, a time when minds may be changed, schedules are difficult to maintain, and more challenges are revealed as testy disagreements are expressed.

Then on March 12, 2015, a general shift in thinking and planning occurs as Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters murky Pisces at the "A Public Market" degree in the Sabian Symbols. However, this won't end Washington's grandiose thinking with the speculator-wastrel pair of Jupiter and Neptune associated with Pisces but may make them more confusing or subtly hidden. The Jupiter-Neptune pair also relates to political conflicts so the political games and challenges continue on both sides of the aisle.

Another shift occurs on April 8, 2015 as giant Jupiter turns Direct @12Leo35 and this is another instance of the Jupiter to natal Sun transit mentioned above for President Obama. At this time, tr Mercury @16Ari57 conjoins techno genius and cyber hacker Uranus and this pair relates to several levels of experience, of course, including air and space travel. 12Leo to 16Aries suggests their recent Fire Trine of creativity and technological advances which may aid the acceptance and implementation of President Obama's SOTU 2015 proposals, grandly inspired as they may be.

If not by April, then growth, investment, and development may occur once Jupiter passes the shadow degree of his December 8, 2014 Rx Station (22Leo37) in July 2015 and begins to move ahead into the future.

Beware: 'Full Moon' Congress in session Jan 6, 2015

January 2015: a Full Moon in Cancer Spotlights the 114th Congress

by Jude Cowell

On January 4, 2015 a Full Moon lights the way as 114th US Congress members saunter toward Capitol Hill to meet in session on Tuesday January 6, 2015. By then, the Capricorn Sun will team with a dramatic Leo Moon, a dictatorial blend of energies suitable for what I call the 'Full Moon' Congress of 2015 with its 'Revolution Rocks the Boat' vibes of regime change that threaten to transmute the very identity of the venerable, traditional institution (Sun conjunct Pluto opposing We the People's Moon across the 4/10 axis: awareness, fulfillment, culmination of career and security objectives).

The January 4th Full Moon issues from the prominent 'World Stage' New Moon of December 21, 2014--Winter Solstice--@00Cap06 which will have germinated plans and projects toward fuller flowering at the January 4, 2015 Full Moon; this cosmic imprint will affect the entire year and for two years, describes the 114th Congress. The Pluto-Chiron midpoint (plutocracy, oppression, primal violence, Capitalism, Communism, Bolshevikism, Nazism, National Zionism, White Aryanism, Socialism, and more -isms than we can shake a stick at) is active in both the New Moon and Full Moon horoscopes and if you look at the chart shown below, you see Pluto-Chiron conjoins the 5th house of Risk-Taking and Speculation @13AQ02/37. Actually, Pluto, Chiron, and the 5th cusp are all at 13 degrees suggesting that a fated or karmic condition is involved--possibly an ancient one at that.

Naturally, the Winter Solstice 2014 horoscope is important in considerations concerning the 114th Congress, at least until Spring Equinox (Aries Ingress) in March 2015, an Equinox which will be imprinted by a New Moon @29Pis27--a Solar Eclipse.

Image: January 4, 2015, a Full Moon @14Can30 perfects at 11:53:14 pm EST Capitol Hill, Washington DC; Hour of the Moon (changes, fluctuations, publicity); Angular Uranus at critical degree (12Ari) conjunct tr SN denoting separations of some kind possibly involving technology (breaches, leaks?); the pair conjoins Descendant Suggesting Broken Alliances or Partnering with anarchists, radicals, or zealots:

Please pardon a typo penned on the chart as "115th Congress" which should read as the 114th Congress--thanks, jc

Though it isn't marked on the chart, at Midheaven (MC = Aspirations) are nestled America's natal planets in Cancer (5--14 degrees). The 10th house Moon exalted in her own sign conjoins US natal Sun and Sirius (Alpha Canis Major: the shining one; the scorcher; the fire of immortality). Sirius is the star-goddess venerated by several ancient cultures and active in the founding of America, thanks to our nation's Freemason-Rosicrucian-Illuminati founders who were, it turns out the more I study them, feminine goddess worshipers rather than Christian believers--'Deists' as they are often called in an attempt to make their true allegiances and ultimate goals more palatable to the public.

Even the 10 x 10 shape of The District of Columbia--a diamond laid out by George Washington--is an archetypal symbol of Venus, and Sirius is the Star of Isis. Since Sirius may signify 'great deeds' (Brady), perhaps in 2015 the American people will shake off the politically engineered apathy that assails us and act on behalf of ourselves for a change because I doubt that the changes the GOP have in mind are what most of the public will desire or wish to accept (exs: Medicare vouchers, more dissolution of US sovereignty, lower corporate taxes, fatter political donations, additional banking bailouts on the backs of taxpayers as Wall Street gambles again and crashes the economy, expanded wars, less privacy, less health insurance coverage, more racist legislation, etc.) Plus, a Full Moon conjunct US natal Sun (the president) suggests that a majority of the public is more in tune with White House aims (as they are stated) than with GOP austerity measures which are punitive for us, liberating for corporations and others of the power elite class who have ensnared most of life's advantages as it is--at our expense.

And so I have entitled the Full Moon of Congress 2015 horoscope, "Revolution Rocks the Boat" even though the Uranus-NN = Pluto midpoint picture suggests that billionaire backers (supra-national bankers), plutocrats, and secret society types intend to do the rocking via political action, obstructionism, and propaganda campaigns.

Yet opposite the powerful Sun-Pluto duo, is the public's natal Moon with starry Sirius denoting that We the People must not sit on our hands while Pluto, The Secret Hand (the Vatican and others) effect changes toward totalitarian global government, well on the way toward implementation as it may or may not be. I say this knowing that all or most Democrats are part of the 'Big Picture' as well and must also take orders from hidden bosses of the global 'New Jerusalem' persuasion (and the 'Big Picture' includes the TPP, NAFTA, the UN, the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, the Star Families, the Dragons, etc.)

Few can now deny that 'Total Awareness' and control are their goals which are reflected by the first Full Moon of 2015 spotlighting the Cancer-Capricorn axis of Security and Control with Capricorn the Saturn-ruled sign of government, law, and business--at IC, the Foundation or Basis of the chart and of the 114th Congress. And if you enlarge the horoscope you may wish to read (lower left) a few notes concerning the ongoing transit of Uranus opposing US natal Saturn with its 'new order replaces old' connotation seen in part by this Full Moon Congress horoscope, the first lunation of 2015.

Please note that this SO'W post and all others are written from my populist viewpoint and in light of my considered opinion that the 'R v D' ploy is meant to divide and conquer (and weaken) the American people with pointless diversions while hiding the true nature and intent of the 'ruling class' as its members follow the globalist script. They play a 'power game with important consequences' so I look at what actually results from their theatrics rather than at what any politicians say, promise, legislate, or tout. By their fruits ye shall know them.

Now as you know, Cancer is a subjective, self-protective, nurturing placement for the compassionate Moon and reflects the 'reigning needs' and the mood of The People as 2015 begins--and that means all of us, including the less fortunate. These needs must not be allowed to be ignored or neglected by members of the Republican-led 114th Congress of neo-con hawks and Vulcans of war who are anti-government and anti-democracy.

Perhaps the man intended to be the people's standard-bearer, the president, will help staunch the Republican tide about to roll over and capsize our already-leaky boat (which includes our social safety net). After all, in the Foundation 4th house of the chart, you see Mercury @00AQ14 along with Venus (1:59) which times transits of both planets to the US Inaugural Sun--the Office of the President.

Mercury to Sun denotes willpower and communications being used to promote goals along with an originality that can win the day. We're already seeing this condition in President Obama's immigration initiative, the normalization of diplomatic relations with Cuba, and other endeavors. Attracting Venus conjoining Sun adds charm, popularity, easy relationships, and perhaps smaller amounts of money yet both planets are about to oppose Barack Obama's natal Mercury in Leo which on another level describes those who oppose his ideas and plans as Republican rudeness and spite continue. (Edit 2.10.15: Venus in this chart may also represent such figures as Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren as well as other feminine politicos--see more about Venus, below).

In addition, moneybags Jupiter in Leo is retrograde (11th house of Groups) which partially describes the anti-Obama contrariness of Republicans determined to financially stop or delay the president's initiatives from going forward--and this includes 'Obamacare'. Banker Jupiter's path into 2015 has been previously discussed if you'd care for a look.

Yes, Jupiter the General, the Guru, the Professor (as in, Prof. Jonathan 'foot in mouth' Gruber), the Corporatist--the Jolly One's roles are varied and his Rx periods tend to stall plans and activities on several levels. Yet perhaps Jupiter Rx denotes that the continuing stalemate between the White house and Congress will be more evenly matched than a new Congress (un)balanced toward the GOP suggests. In Sun-ruled Leo, ego-driven plans for expansion and investment are under close scrutiny by critics including broadcasters (another of Jupiter's roles) especially around April 8, 2015 and not letting up until after July 2015. Among others, #POTUS will be broadcasting from the Bully Pulpit in order to get his points across to the public while circumventing his opponents' blocking efforts.

Now it's usual in a horoscope to find the Ascendant and Midheaven squaring one another and they act, of course, as places for planetary energies to express. Yet if we wish to gain a bit more insight into what's up with activist Mars in Aquarius (5th house), we find that the warrior planet is apex of a pattern some call a 'Thor's Hammer' (or, 'Fist of God') and this condition depends on the meaning of the ASC-MC midpoint with potentials for: lessening the quality of life, a lack of common or shared goals, leaders who guide through periodic cycles of expansion and contraction, and/or exclusion of racial groups (Munkasey). With Mars as catalyst, this yields a fighters who demand appreciation as they attempt to protect themselves against threats to their lifestyles. Of course, this picture may also describe well-heeled individuals who never seem to hoard enough wealth or resources--and testy Mars isn't known for his sharing qualities, is he?

2015 Begins with a Full Moon in a Cardinal Grand Cross Pattern

Now I have yet to mention the titanic power struggle seen in the Cardinal Grand Cross between North Node, Ascendant, Moon, MC, Sun, Pluto, and Uranus/South Node and which hinges upon the Full Moon, the Nodal Axis (Past and Future direction), the MC (the Goal Point), and the continuing generational conflict of the Cardinal Square of Utopian Uranus and powerful manipulator, Pluto. Civil Rights issues continue to be front and center within their Cardinal Square as 1960s legislative progress is under fire. Also described, the White House v Congress turbulence; the Cross creates several midpoint pictures which you may wish to consider such as the one I penned on the chart and already mentioned, Uranus-NN (radical political groups) = Pluto (the Hidden Hand, plutocrats, saboteurs, etc). Why, just the Pluto opposing US natal Sun transit is enough to describe the power struggles and challenges the president has been facing.

Also prominent in the Full Moon chart as an indicator of good fortune is the 1st house North Node (NN) @14Lib40 which now joins US natal Saturn (lawmakers, judges, managers, our Founding Documents) @14Lib48 and shows that serious meetings are taking place. Though it may suggest limitations on the 'good fortune' of NN in 1st house, Saturn-NN also denotes longstanding ties, foreign enterprises that offer assistance, and/or new alliances forming (Munkasey). Given current conditions in the US, this duo may also point to an encounter (NN) with our national 10th house Saturn, a 'fall from grace' placement that indicates the breach of public contract and neglect of responsibilities and accountability being practiced by many politicians, along with the longstanding determination of certain entities to undermine and collapse the US government and thus control America's direction as global cop and enforcer for a 'new world order' as mentioned and penned on the chart concerning disruptive Uranus in Aries opposing US natal Saturn in Libra.

5th house Mars @24AQ20 conjoins or nears (depending on which US natal chart you prefer) US natal Moon which denotes that the public is very busy as 2015 begins and may act from feelings of anger; our domestic activities are hectic or at least, energetic. In Aquarius, planet Mars loves to reform and here opposes Jupiter Rx though the aspect is separating (2S55) suggesting events and conditions that have already taken place prior to the January 6th Full Moon. This Moon-Mars and setting-Uranus condition may herald more of the public's break with Tea Party politicians such as gasbag Ted "Green Eggs" Cruz--and his Party's rather obvious lack of appreciation for his egoistic efforts.

Chart ruler Venus in Aquarius

Oddly, the first chart consideration has so far been neglected by yours truly and that is Venus as chart ruler (and thus, 114th Congress ruler) and any applying Ptolemaic (major) aspects formed with other planets in the chart. Application of the chart ruler hints at how things will proceed from the January 4th Full Moon, a lunar phase denoting that what was primarily felt in the past is now seen (Rudhyar). On one level this describes the current Republican coup of House and Senate as of November 2014. Yet some political pundits say President Obama has been energized or liberated by this new condition--we shall see as 2015 gets underway.

Now as you see, 4th house Venus is posited in humanitarian Aquarius near US Inaugural Sun as noted above, and makes no applying (waxing) aspects to any of the Full Moon planets. Every planet in this chart is within bounds of the earthly plane so all actors are accounted for and involved yet with the condition of chart-ruler Venus we find that sign and house are emphasized along with the Venus-to-presidential-Sun transit already mentioned. Females and feminine issues are also denoted with any Venus placement.

Plus, a 4th house Venus denotes Real Estate Matters, Security Needs, and Domestic Interests along with projects that beautify the environment. This placement also hints at the attractiveness of our nation for Cuban immigrants who finally may visit their relatives in the US. However, their return to Cuba will involve much complexity and such outcomes cannot be known from the January 4, 2015 Full Moon chart since Venus is non-applying but this does suggest that at least some foreign visitors may endeavor to remain in the US (no application from 4th house).

Note that besides 1st house, Venus also rules the 8th house of Corporatism, Big Business, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Legacies and Inheritances, the Occult, Transformation, and Death and is part of the National Treasury axis, the 2/8 (Republican blocking of Obama's immigration plans via the purse strings?) and if We the People are enraged at Washington DC politicians for providing Wall Street with additional opportunities to gamble with the US economy and our livelihoods and mortgages while spending tax dollars on waging war which fattens their stock portfolios, we have every right to be--even before the December 2014 'Cromnibus' spending bill of last-minute poison pills was passed.

Now on positive levels, Venus in Aquarius signifies potentials for: sponsors who offer protection for those who long for freedom, progressive views concerning relationships, and happy social contacts. Negatively, the placement may also describe those who entertain peculiar plans and ideas (Ebertin) which may not sit well with a majority of the American people for our natal Venus of 1776 is in nurturing Cancer and our Moon is in humanitarian Aquarius.

One example of peculiar plans? Shrinking government until it can be drowned in a bath tub, a favorite goal of the tax-cutting, monarchic Republican Party which has apparently derailed their primary debating Clown Car of ridiculous presidential candidates for 2016. Well, their silly displays have served the purpose the last few years of ignoring real issues and solutions for the American people just as their spiteful obstructionism during Democratic presidencies have done. Undermining President Obama's efforts is a deep and guiding obsession for the GOP!

It's all part of Washington's Political Theater script, folks! And since the US government is owned by foreign entities who do not have America's best interests at heart, US politicians have no option to do other than follow orders.

Dec 15, 2014: Bill of Rights Day as the Uranus-Pluto square perfects

Have You Total Awareness of Enslavement?

by Jude Cowell

Today is Bill of Rights Day in America for the Bill of Rights, the 'foundation of our liberty' was ratified 223 years ago on December 15, 1791.

In the heavens, this day is marked (or honored?) by the sixth of seven exact squares between the radical and rebellious combination of Uranus (America's totem planet of revolution) and ancient Pluto, planet of entrenched power, wealth, control, and manipulation--also known as The Pope, the assassin, and the saboteur. And you don't have to use Astrology to see the titanic, generational struggle for power going on now across the globe via civil rights protests and the challenges between political factions within the US government.

One of our nation's founders, Thomas Paine, believed that all monarchies were illegitimate and it saddens me that apathetic voters in November 2014 have allowed the new Congress of 2015 to welcome entrenched monarchistic forces of the power elite class--which includes monarchists--to take over the rule of our government leaving no room for the American people. The Uranus-Pluto motto of the day--I Can't Breathe applies to this case as well for We the People may find ourselves as a class devoid of breathe well before 2015 ends. I hope I'm wrong, but there it is--disagree if you will but I expect the machinations of Congress to take our collective breath away with its brutal draconian measures.

At 12:14 am ET today, Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries (anarchists, zealots, Utopians) and Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn (dictators) squared one another at critical degrees of the two Cardinal (active, initiating) signs. The seventh and last of their dynamic squares will occur at 10:54 pm ET on March 16, 2015 (not on March 17, as previously stated.)

Additionally, transit Uranus in Aries has moved into orb of opposition to US natal Saturn, planet of government, law, and business, and signifying the lawmakers of Congress among others. This is an indicator of a 'new order (Uranus) supplanting the 'old order' (Saturn, the status quo', the Establishment), another factor clearly demonstrated by ongoing Capitol Hill dramas and the grandstanding of zealous gasbag wrench-throwers such as Mr. Cruz.

So given the current shaking of the 'foundation of our liberty' on this Bill of Rights Day 2014, we shall see what the "party of the rich man" (as Harry Truman plainly called them), the Republican Party--along with an out-of-bounds Supreme Court, a complicit Democratic Party, the White House, and all their happy little backers with anti-democratic foreign allegiances--have in store for our seemingly 'free society'.

And all their shady plans may crescendo at the 2016 presidential election during which yet another of the Bush Crime Family may be encrowned within the Venusian Oval Office and under orders to do the will of 'New World Order' global bosses of a satanic-luciferian nature, usually identified as the Bavarian Illuminati (officially formed on May 1, 1776) with its eye-over-pyramid symbol placed in full view upon the US dollar bill (by Illuminati agent, FDR) and glaringly used as a symbol on America's Great Seal.

Will the Global Crime Syndicate Have its Way?

The ancient plan of Francis Bacon ('The New Atlantis") and others, promoted in the 1800s by Albert Pike (the only Confederate General with a statue in Washington DC, his body entombed in a vault a few blocks from the White House) marches on toward Global Government and they want us to believe this is inevitable. And considering that the American populace, weakened in so many ways, shows such apathy and a willful lack of awareness of what these zealots and crooks are perpetrating upon America and the world through their 'Total Awareness' program, it may be that inevitability is a pretty good bet.

October Eclipses, US Political Parties, and the Destiny of Warhawks

A page concerning the two-party political system in America and related topics by Sioux Rose has needed a link here on Stars Over Washington (a Political Astrology blog by yours truly that enters its 10th year on October 16, 2014) so here it is. Astrological principles inform our understanding of events and politicians' actions so I hope those with any sort of interest in Politics, and in using the venerable craft (As Above, So Below!) to peek at the underbelly of that "...organized system of hatreds" (H. B. Adams) will review the article.

As you know, we have an 'Age of Reason' infestation across the nation by those who have infiltrated our ranks (civil, political, financial, economic, even social) and breached our branches of government and other institutions, with the intention of causing an eventual chaotic crash so that the world pleads for the establishment of a 'new world order'.

The Age of Reason, or, Enlightenment, relates astrologically to Uranus-Neptune and to the very important planet Venus, as the archetypal goddess of revenge...and the attraction to and by such brutal behavior (Uranus in Aries, deposited by warrior Mars = zealots, anarchists, and mysticism-loving psychotics who are particularly fond of preying on and oppressing women--just like plutocrats!) As archetypal Niobe (the grieving mother) knows, one reason women and their rights are being suppressed now is that we as a large group seldom advise waging war--and we rightly criticize those-who-refuse-to-be-criticized for their lack of humanity.

Actually, it's only certain individuals and groups who harbor such ideas of how the world should be fashioned in this 'New Millennium'--captive, enslaved, and with all 'chaff' gleaned away genetically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Anyone who remains standing if these global jokers have their way had better "Get Onboard the Train or Get Left Behind." My belief is that what America's hawkish re-entry into Iraq and Syria (and beyond) are signified by astrologically these days is the Locomotive pattern formed between the planets with a proud and solar Leonine Jupiter wearing his General's fancy beanie as he leads a reluctant nation into an obvious continuance of perpetual war that the out-of-bounds power elite simply can't resist profiting from.

Not that the old guys in charge (Joint Chiefs of Staff, foreign influencers and global bankers bald and bold as they may be) and the gals who assist them actually do any physical fighting, mind you. Did you catch today's Meet the Press with Admiral Michael McMullen, former chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff for President Obama--admitting to Chuck Todd that public opinion is not a factor in his or other generals' decisions on war? If any American had ever missed that fact, there it is again. For-by-of The People, anybody?

Actually, let's make that 'never' a factor in decisions since most of us well remember how Bush, Cheney, the other Vulcans, Theocrats, and Zionists ignored the anti-war opinions of millions of people both here and abroad who protested in the streets--against invading the sovereign nation of Iraq. Guess Saddam's sneaky habit of selling oil on the black market wasn't look upon lightly by Bush, Cheney, and their oil-men colleagues and shareholders. Robbers on all sides!

Well, Jumpin' Oil Production and Profit!

And notice that it is being reported in the US that the 'ISIS-ISIL-IS-Daesh' army has taken over oilfields that others think they own so if we add that to the religious war/final days script many of the Uranus-in-Aries zealots now act under so unpredictably, erratically, and cold-heartedly (and happily egged on by global string pullers), one result is perpetual, endless war ('it ain't over till it's over'?) meant to wipe out Muslims, Christians, and all 'useless eaters' as the super-wealthy class of elites deem the masses to be, as per old Freemason Albert Pike, a Confederate General whose statue remains standing in the District of Columbia.

Why some folks might wonder if Pike is now represented by Jupiter the General! In the 1880s, Pike worked toward and on behalf of waging World War III, you know, and I admit to seeing this very plan being played out by current Washington DC agents and operatives. (President Obama? His natal Mars is veiled discreetly by US natal Neptune in Virgo--the virgin-whore motif--hinting at secret motives and a hidden agenda); plus, elusive goddess worship is an integral part of their 'peaceful' presidential baton-passing with its feminine goddess psychopathy, and echoing support of America's problematic Mars-Neptune square from 1776 = misdirected energy and aims played out under the 'fog of war'.

The two Societal Planets, Jupiter and Saturn, now square off = Ds vs Rs 2014; and two Eclipses highlight where our attention is most needed

Now yes, I do know that many people now predict a collapse of the anti-democratic global government plan to rule a totalitarian world while the hidden planners of this massive anti-societal project continue to be outed and rightfully ridiculed by the public. I'm happy to hear that self-exalting power elites will fall under their own weight, ruined by the overly forceful energy they use for this is certainly a possibility as transiting creep Pluto (transformation, death) heavily plods back and forth through structural Capricorn (sign of government, law, and business), toppling heads of state as he creeps. Even political incumbents' gravy trains are trundling on shaky tracks because the November 4, 2014 midterms cometh!

Yet we may as well admit that the global government script will continue to be followed by whatever 'victors' emerge from the political frays of 2014 and 2016. Hasn't Mr. Obama's alleged turn-around on troops returning to Iraq been evidence enough if you weren't persuaded before? The now-convenient fact is that it was George Bush who signed the agreement with al-Maliki to deploy all US troops from the region by December 2011 and this circumstance was set up as part of the process toward a Pike-ish Third World War with the added benefit of giving the next commander-in-chief political cover as needed. This helps obfuscate the Big Picture while our 'dovish' president succumbs to pressure from the environment.

However, perhaps the role of Uranian 'wild card' that Solar and Lunar Eclipses tend to perform will support such discoveries as the true identities of guilty parties and their dark secrets and will make a real difference for The Collective as October 2014 nears and provides global society with two cosmic spotlights: a Lunar Eclipse in mid-Aries on October 8th (Moon conjunct Uranus Rx and South Node--excitable yet unpredictable energies rush in, past behavior is depended upon no matter how inappropriate to current situations as war is promoted, and bad timing and rash, belligerent actions cause big problems making conditions worse than before.) Then occurs an intense, controlling (Mars-Pluto) Solar Eclipse @00Sco24 on October 23, 2014 with influences which many people may find enjoyable. Meanwhile, purveyors of rebellion and conflict address large financial issues along with relationship concerns, separations, and lack of cohesiveness within coalitions. Guess that is their enjoyment.

And of course, the generational Cardinal Square between anarchist and rebel Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries and ancient manipulator and saboteur Pluto (with his Invisible Helmet and hidden wealth in all the sneaky places) will continue to support conflict between plutocratic rulers, heads of state and church, and their minions by bringing forward opposition from others who disagree with them on various topics including on the battlefield. Except as stated above, because the people are expected to do the actual fighting once a sufficient amount of propaganda has been applied to public sensibilities and confusion over true issues reigns...fact v fiction, Saturn v Neptune.

Some people just don't like to be pushed and ordered around, oh global dweebs and dead-enders of satan!

And so my generationally inspired 'Flower Power' self prefers to encourage better outcomes to these conflicts and dilemmas filtered through the then-popular 1960s--1970s slogan so sadly appropriate for civil society in 2014: What if they threw a war and nobody showed up? Of course, the other side of that coin is: let's put bankers, corporatists, and warhawks into a ring and let them duke it out with whoever shows up to block their arrogant, over-arching agenda of conquest.

Or is it 'whomever'?

Again I shall note on SO'W that the long-lasting Cardinal Square between Uranus and Pluto (Aries-Capricorn--the Ram and the Goat, or Mer-Goat--not much difference between these head-butters!) becomes exact (partile) twice more on: December 15, 2014 and March 17, 2015, points in time when the Square's conflicting energies, power struggles, and challenges become most intense though the stop-go method of Mars-Saturn contacts also continue to lighten things up occasionally on this heinous path to Hades our governments and their bosses have plunked us upon so gradually, very gradually America has been turned in a self-undoing direction at least since 'Manifest Destiny' reared its greedy, goatish head and morphed into our meddling in the affairs of other countries--in tandem with its misguided brother, preemptive war.

America: No Longer a Beacon of Freedom if ever it was

The background energy of the period from now until some time after March 17, 2015 I find to be one that may on one level be described by a certain Sabian Symbol for '2 Libra', the rounded-up degree of the September 24, 2014 New Moon: "The Light of the Sixth Race Transmuted to the Seventh". Depending on which hour is used to set up the natal horoscope, this is one of the rounded-up degrees of America's Midheaven, The Goal Point, on July 4, 1776 if one wished to use its Jupiterian Ascendant at or about 12 Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker. It includes a very early Libra MC with '2Lib' hinting at archetypal goddesses and occult motives of America's Founding Fathers who may or may not have clearly envisioned exactly how recent and current anti-government usurpers would cynically grasp the reins of power and command in order to drive our nation over a totalitarian 'new world order' cliff in the mistaken belief that they will be royally rewarded. And they think we're the gullible pigeons!
