Big Pharma Terrified That Medical Marijuana Will Kill Their Deadly Opioid Business - clip

It isn't only opinion anymore since evidence has turned up concerning Big Pharma's knickers in a knot over medical pot legalization ruining their lucrative sales of synthetic cannabis, not to mention that our country's high levels of opioid dependency might decrease if a safer choice were available. Public health is no concern of Big Pharma!

Well, here's Farron Cousins on the controversial topic and you may also wish to check out coverage from The Intercept:

It seems to me that the American people should be well ready by now to demand an end to draconian oppression by a government that sentences citizens harshly for a crumb of marijuana while letting Big Bankers (translation: Big-Bank Robbers, money launderers, inside traders) walk free with no negative consequences after the global heist they perpetrated a few years ago. They know what they did.

Tragically, the level of criminality winked at by a nation is the level of the government that fails to protect its own people from such abuse, then commits it. So maybe that's it! Money grubbing abuse of power is the game for those who dare cross the line of honor and decency while pretending to be politicians and civil officials "serving" on behalf of "We the People". The old of-by-for is considered an antiquated relic of the past (along with nation-states and the US Constitution) by the futurist zealots and sociopath Utopians who imagine themselves as the powers that be.

For as Max Igan said recently, "the world is run by a bunch of lying criminals," and that in ten words pretty much sums up our collective condition and apathetic blindness, ya think?

The Fed's New Moon, Mars Rx Station 2016, and Yellen's Secret Meetings

April 2016: Is a Global Financial Collapse on the Horizon?

As you may have heard, Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen this past week called to order a few secret emergency meetings, one with President Obama, as detailed in an article from ZeroHedge: Day After Obama Meeting, Yellen Confirms Fed "Focused on Main Street...Helping All Americans" yet such an altruistic aim is quite a different story compared to the Federal Reserve Bank's usual modus operandi.

So with tomorrow's Mars Retrograde Station @8Sag54 it may be 'profitable' to have a look at the Fed's New Moon horoscope of December 1, 1910 when Senator Nelson Aldrich, German banker Paul Warburg, and the J. P. Morgan agents and other New York bankers masqueraded as "Hunters Starting Out for Ducks" and left New York City by midnight train for a few days in order to hold their secret meetings in private on Jekyll Island, Georgia. While there, a New Moon perfected, as you see below, and this darkened period is when feathers flew as plans were hashed out to form America's central banking system, the one Janet Yellen now heads as 'The Fed'. Of course, at that time the Banking Panic of 1907 was used to justify such desperate and aggressive action:

Also note that there is a T-Square between the Jupiter-Saturn opposition with its energies expressing at Midheaven, the Goal Point of the chart. This culmination of Jupiter and Saturn by opposition had begun with their Great Conjunction @14Capricorn on November 28, 1901 so things had been simmering for some time; Jupiter-Saturn relates to government officials (ex: Senator Nelson Aldrich also 'hunted ducks' and his name was placed atop the 'Aldrich Plan' to hide culpable bankers' fingerprints) and to philosophers, to checks and balances, and to issues of expansion vs restriction. Of course, 14Cap opposes US natal Sun (the president) which spotlights Woodrow Wilson 'taking destiny in his hands' with this bankers' charade--one of them was his son-in-law.

Now you know that in Astrology Mars acts as a handy dandy trigger of events. You also know that a planet is extra strong when stationing on a degree as Mars will do Sunday April 17, 2016 @8Sag54 at 8:14 am edt--conjunct the difficult star Antares (good fortune but sudden loss) and the Fed's New Moon of 1910 @8Sag49. Is this significant? Well, there are echoes from 1910 to 2016 since the Fed is now having secret meetings. Especially when we consider that many economists (and astrologers) have been prognosticating financial collapse in 2016. Will this year (or 2017) bring the complete collapse of global markets and currencies that Neoliberal Utopians of the von Mises-Hayek persuasion have long planned in order to fully implement an agenda of World Government via control by money? The US central banking system was implemented in order to control money, the US government, credit, and gold/silver markets. If the Monetary Trust's incremental plans aren't timing out quite right or a bit too soon for their ultimate purposes it won't be for lack of planning.

And yes, Tyler Durden's article linked above includes Janet Yellen's gentler Main Street objective for "helping all Americans" and it would be super to be able to believe that the current threat of collapse is not merely a timing issue. But if you believe her concerning Main Street, it might be good to first consider the above chart in light of the April 17th Mars Rx Station hitting the Fed's New Moon at its inception, plus, the knowledge that testy Mars will Station Direct @28Scorpio at the end of June, re-enter Sagittarius the first week of August, and join this New Moon's meeting and planning Mercury @19Sag28 (in the corporate/big business 8th house of the chart) on or about September 11, 2016.

Significant? Well, both New and Full Moons can behave much like Eclipses with a New Moon acting as a Solar Eclipse, a 'wild card of the Universe' which can cause disruption in similar fashion to bolt-from-the-blue Uranus while uncovering inconvenient secrets no matter how long they've been hidden.

For one reason, 2016 Mars to 1910 Mercury seems significant to me because trickster Mercury is apex planet of a YOD pattern (special task; turning point; crisis) as you see, highlighted in pink--with Mercury in the 8th house of Finance as noted. So before I close this fussy post, I'll add a few midpoint picture potentials below for 1910 Mercury and for 2016 Mars as apex planets of the YOD between secretive, fraudulent dreamer Neptune (@21Cancer, near US natal Mercury Rx--and soon to oppose US natal Pluto in Capricorn, a power-and-resource-eroding transit) sextiling both the 19Taurus Ascendant and North Node, a point of encounter and future direction. These wayward bankers in 1910 redirected America's future direction all right by finessing a central banking system which the American people never wanted--see the cartoon, below. NY bankers and their allies illegally and surreptitiously shoved a bill through Congress on December 23, 1913 and President Woodrow Wilson doltishly signed it. Then they pretended it was law.

(And this illegal banking system is what 2016 candidate Bernie Sanders argues against on the campaign stump though he must be aware that 'breaking up the big banks' will never be enough to stop these crooks who embedded themselves into the US government and took control of our economy decades ago in the shadow of a New Moon when things tend to go bump in the night. Hopefully, transit Mars won't trigger the bump or the night.)

So here are the YOD's midpoint pictures using Ebertin and Tyl for guidance; see if you think any of them applied to circumstances in 1910 or apply now to the big mess they've engineered and which seems to be nearing a major tipping point:

Neptune-NN (lack of community spirit) = 1910 Mercury: making secret arrangements and deceiving others; false expectations; unreliability. With 2016 Mars: inability to adapt to circumstances or conditions; disharmonious working environments.

Neptune-ASC (exploitation, illusion, deceit, abuse or betrayal of confidence; liars and crooks) = 1910 Mercury: malicious scheming; exploitation of others; guided by wrong impressions; misconceptions about other people; taking the wrong path. With 2016 Mars: angry upsets or quarrels; suffering harm or damage; primitive or instinctive urges wrongly expressed; unpleasant teamwork.

And now we could do worse than to close with an often cited statement by Rep. Charles Lindbergh Sr from December 23, 1913, and one of the famous cartoons of the era:

"This Act established the most gigantic trust on earth. When the president signs this bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed..."

It's Friday the 13th, 2015 and superstition lingers

A Fuss for Friday February 13, 2015

by Jude Cowell

Surrounded by superstition since the 19th century and even earlier, Friday the 13th is the most feared date in history, perhaps seconded by the Ides of March.

Promoted in such novels as Friday the Thirteenth by Thomas W. Lawson (1907), the date is considered by many to be linked to King Philip's mass arrest of Knights Templar--including Jacques DeMolay--on Friday October 13, 1307, ostensibly to avoid the crown's debts owed to the Templars whose pioneering banking prowess may be the model of, if not the basis for, the world's current usurious central banking criminality and power-grabbiness.

And of course, the number '13' is well known for its numerology symbolism and is usually considered to be *unfortunate though occult sources such as Isidore Kozminsky say it's a number of regeneration, unity, and prosperity. Some of the negativity cast upon Friday the 13th may arise from the crucifixion of Christ on a Friday, the day of preparation prior to the Sabbath Day when mankind is advised to rest and hold sacred from mundane work (according to the Fourth Commandment of God). From my own church experience, I am shown that the Sabbath Day is a 24-hour 'window of time through which we may see Eternity', a description that astrologers and others can appreciate since our work with cosmic cycles makes obvious that 'every 7th day is the 7th day' back to the original--the number a day occupies in the weekly cycle does not change even if its name changes from one culture to another. But I digress. Or do I?

If not, then perhaps there is something to the repetition of the number 13 in a calendar just as a degree is sensitized and thus emphasized by an eclipse manifesting upon it. Such is the case when we look at a sunrise horoscope set for Paris on October 13, 1307 (the mass arrests of Templars began at dawn with 'Paris' as a symbol of France) for some interesting chart factors pop out:

Sun and Ascendant 27Lib08 followed by Midas 28:24 (the Templars?), Mercury 11Sco24, Uranus 11:41, Neptune 12:17, and Saturn 14:01 conjunct Fixed Star Agena (Beta Centaurus: 'the pain of learning'), all in 1st house (Placidus). Agena is an interesting star though not always used and is the 'partner star' of Toliman (aka, Bungala; Alpha Centaurus). Both stars relate to education, learning, and sacrifice at an altar; aligned they point toward the Southern Cross. One of the charges in court used against the Templars was that they practiced unholy rites such as sacrificing on an altar dedicated to demonic forces (Pope Clement V was plotting from his lair in Rome) rather than to Christ.

For more on such stars as Agena and Toliman, see Brady's Predictive Astrology.

Also rising in the 12th house of Karma, Self-Undoing, and Politics, is the North Node of destiny @13Lib44 Rx, so recently conjoined by the current NN, the head of the dragon. In fact, today, on this particular Friday the 13th, transiting NN @11Libra conjoins the 1307 date's Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse degree of 11Lib34 in 12th house and although I've searched online and elsewhere, the Saros Series for that Solar Eclipse has not been located--that bit of information seems to be missing. However, the Solar Eclipse in Libra did occur on October 7, 1307 ("Saros 42" say websites but not the number I need for its themes) and was preceded two weeks earlier by a Lunar Eclipse on September 22, 1307.

Scorpio Rising...

So let's consider a few factors in the October 13, 1307 chart with its foursome of planets rising in the occult sign of Scorpio: Mercury, Uranus, Neptune, and Saturn, the last a triple conjunction of heavy hitters. As you know, Uranus and Neptune are The Enlightenment pair which last met in Great Conjunction three times in 1993 at and around 18 Capricorn (POLITICAL POWER in the Sabian Symbols) during the presidency of Bill Clinton. Their last exact conjunction on Oct 24th forms the basis for a modern 'New World Order' natal horoscope often referred to by yours truly primarily because the symbol for 18 Capricorn is descriptive of what is being negatively and progressively implemented in the realm of Politics: "smug or strong-armed paternalism"--Jones. In the chart, the Scorpio foursome of 1307 falls between 1993 Sun and Mars in 10th house (Washington DC).

October 13, 1307 sunrise 6:34:10 am LMT Paris, France: Hour of Venus, the chart-ruler @22Virgo in 11th House and Dispositor of the Moon in Taurus

In the 2nd house of Money and Values is banker planet Jupiter in its own sign of Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker on a Sacred Quest; Scorpio planets Mars and Pluto are in Capricorn and Aquarius, respectively, in 3rd and 4th houses. The first pair of planets to rise are Mercury and Uranus denoting potentials for intuition, astuteness, nervous haste, inventiveness, shrewdness, revolutionary spirit, a scattering of energies, brutal frankness, upset, contradiction, physics and math, the spinal cord, and "too many irons in the fire"--Ebertin. Note that the Templars were tortured into confession with methods repeated during The Inquisition and by the US and others in our era.

The intense Mercury-Uranus conjunction of 1307 was spotlighted (however dimly) on November 3, 2013 by what I've termed the "Illumination Eclipse" due to its initial manifestation containing a trine between the Illuminati-Enlightenment-Age of Reason planets, Uranus and Neptune (Science blends with Religion though some call it Faith).

The November 3, 2013 Solar Eclipse occurred @11Sco15 with Lord Saturn @13Sco52--near its 1307 degree (basically a Saturn Return for the 1307 mass arrests) in the 16 North Saros Series with themes of 'sudden release of unconscious material; illumination of ideas that can be acted upon; a sense of inspiration and deep insight'--Brady). Eclipse Mercury Rx and NN conjoined @7Scorpio---all in the 12th house when the chart is set for Washington DC, our capital city built upon Sacred Geometry principles using the ancient Megalithic Yard system of measurement.

Next up in the 1307 horoscope is the Saturn-Neptune pair indicating such apt potentials as suffering, asceticism, renunciation, readiness for sacrifice, foresight, dual characters, lower vs higher natures (idealism vs materialism), a methodical execution of plans, painful and tormenting inhibitions, painstaking efforts, distrust, peculiar temperaments, poor-sick-depressed people. Saturn-Neptune forms the 'illness axis' of any horoscope. (All planetary pair info paraphrased from Ebertin's The Combination of Stellar Influences).

In closing, I shall add that at sunrise on October 13, 1307, the 7th house Moon @12Tau59 opposed the Scorpio planets. This gives a Sun Libra-Moon Taurus Venusian atmosphere to the day with an Air-Earth quality that 'observes, thinks, plans a course of action, then acts' (Harvey) and this may refer to the monarch of France and the Pope but also to the Templars who escaped the purge---some say first to Scotland and then on to the what was to become America, the Utopian 'New Atlantis' envisioned by Sir Francis Bacon (Tudor), Bartholomew Gosnold (who sailed to Jamestown), Adam Weishaupt (founder of the Bavarian Illuminati on May 1, 1776), and others of the anti-democratic, anti-ownership, anti-religion, anti-government Illuminati persuasion.

And of course, goddess Venus can be extremely vengeful and when last to rise before the Sun (oriental) as in 1307, denotes those who work with very valuable things such as gold, silver, and gemstones.

Well, there you have it, friends, my fuss for this Friday the 13th, 2015. If this post contains any useful or curiously interesting information for you, do consider me quite pleased!


*In his The Symbols and Meanings of Numbers, Kozminsky adds the occult symbol for '13' is A Skeleton with scythe (Death) reaping down men which certainly applies to actions stemming from the arrests of October 13, 1307. He also mentions that "a crowned head of a man has fallen at the point of the scythe", a picture worthy of correlation with certain historical events for those who may be curious about events such as the French Revolution and the beheading of King Louis XVI which was apparently enacted as revenge for the execution of Jacques DeMolay.

Sept 2016 Solar Eclipse affects Election 2016 and Inauguration 2017

Electing a President Under the 19 North Solar Eclipse

by Jude Cowell

Since America's November Election of 2016 arrives just after the Solar Eclipse of September 1, 2016 (@9 Virgo) we call this the Pre-Natal Eclipse of the Election. And it's the same with the next Inauguration ceremony on January 20, 2017: the September 2016 Solar Eclipse in the 19 North Saros Series will have a background influence upon the swearing-in of our next president as well as the November Election.

The 19 North Solar Eclipse @9Virgo on September 1, 2016 describes themes of 'realism, coming down to earth and seeing an old situation for what it really is--a constructive time for tackling the truth' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Yet given the degree of propaganda used in America through campaign ads, pundits, reporters, corporate shills, politicians, and others, it will be interesting to see if the themes of 19N have a positive influence on Campaign 2016 and on the term of a new president. If felt in Politics, Law, or Business, 19N will be operative at least until the next Solar Eclipse which manifests on February 26, 2017 @8Pisces, the degree of America's natal Pluto-Chiron (plutocracy) midpoint which conjoined our national Ceres (security, food supply, corn = prosperity, etc) on July 4, 1776. As you know, feminine goddesses were a preoccupation of our Founding Fathers who created America based on the Enlightenment principles of Science and reason.

America's natal Uranus, Planet of Revolution, Freedom, and Independence in the Mix

19N's degree (9Virgo) squares US natal Uranus 8Gem55 and opposes US natal Ceres and our Pluto-Chiron midpoint (8Pisces.) Will the themes of the eclipse block or merely be triggered? Uranus is always unpredictable yet we may expect that here it denotes an uncaring attitude toward humanity! 'Indifferent to the needs of society' seems a perfect description of recent anti-government upstarts and anarchists in Congress most if not all of whom are Republicans. Curiously, the 19N is also the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the Republican Party (July 6, 1854) which may increase their chances of election, this common-good populist blogger is sad to say.

Unfortunately, if rascally Utopian anarchists and social engineers hold sway in our 2016 Election results, their lack of community spirit will prevent karmic progress for our nation and we will continue to regress on many levels of the evolutionary scale. As you know, their brother's keeper they are Not and we shall all be forced to reap what they sow while Ayn Rand dances a jig in her grave.

Another factor about the 19N eclipse--it manifests in Virgo, sign of Health, Work, and The Critic, and ruled by Mercury hints that President Obama's ACA program will be on the GOP menu as they've constantly threatened particularly if a Republican takes the White House. Now astrologically speaking I believe a Democrat will win but intrigue of a desperate kind could possibly interfere. Plus, other health care issues may come to the fore as well especially with nurturing Ceres involved with the eclipse--and likely security issues will be prominent. And there is one thing we know about Virgo when blended with politics and political campaigns: criticism will abound.

As for the next president, whoever is selected will continue the implementation of the Great Plan's 'new world economic order' whether male or female, Democrat or Republican. They will have no option to do otherwise as has been the case all along though I'm not entirely convinced that 18th century Illuminati proponents such as Thomas Jefferson expected that eventually such a major dismantling of our nation would occur as it's doing now under our noses--morphing into a totalitarian state. Maybe Jefferson knew, maybe he didn't. Did Benjamin Franklin understand the ultimate goal of global domination in the way it's being forcefully implemented now? If any of them did, my suspicion is that Dr. Franklin knew.

What form of government did the founders create?, Ben was asked by the man in the street. "A republic, if you can keep it," Franklin is said to have pithily replied.

Often we can get an idea of the sort of energy contained within a Saros Series by reviewing the events of the years in which it manifested. 19N = 1908, 1926, 1944, 1962, 1980, 1998, (2016), and next: 2034. With presidential politics, a remembrance of which presidents were in office during those years and the issues and laws with which they dealt may yield information related to modern day circumstances because history repeats in similar ways and sometimes with the same topics up for revision.

For the genesis of 19N themes, you may wish to take a look back at its date of inception, July 5, 1331, @20Can32 and consider the events occurring around that time. Naturally, 19N originally contained a Cancerian vibe, ruled by a nurturing yet tribal Moon. As for me, that must be a post for another day.

Apr 14-15 2014 "Blood Moon" Lunar Eclipse first of four

With the upcoming Total Lunar Eclipse of April 14-15, 2014 (depending on your location) being called a "Blood Moon" as inspired by Biblical prophecy, the website Earth and provides interesting information which may be of value to you. The April 14-15 Lunar Eclipse @25Libra will be visible from the Americas and is first of four Total Lunar Eclipses in a row, the next three manifesting on October 8, 2014 @ 15Aries (Tropical Zodiac), April 4, 2015 @14Libra, and September 28, 2015 @5Aries.

As you see, the Aries-Libra axis is emphasized (ruled by Mars-Venus) which includes relationships of all sorts, war and peace, and, as always with Lunar Eclipses where the Sun and Moon oppose one another, an awareness factor and a culmination/fulfillment factor are involved. Revelations of secrets tend to come with any eclipse, Lunar or Solar, and weather conditions or Earth changes such as tectonic shifts cannot be ruled out. Eclipses are often known as the 'wild cards of the Universe' for their quirky Uranian 'expect the unexpected' frequency. In a word, the influence and results from eclipses are unpredictable.

Curiously, of the four Total Lunar Eclipses of 2014 and 2015, only the eclipse of September 28, 2015 will be visible from Israel and then only the last few minutes of it. Visit Earth and Sky for more details.

Whether you choose to see any of these implications as Biblical in nature is up to you, of course, but I admit that the direction the world is going--selfishness, greed, envy, parent-against-children/children-against-parent, 'knowledge increases men run to and fro', fraud and abuse by clergy, earth and environmental catastrophes, and so on--is a definite cause of concern for this blogger on behalf of humankind. The false philosophy that man can 'perfect himself' is laughable were it not a tragic deception and the deception may be part of what motivates many of America's current crop of anti-government, *Utopian anarchists who believe that chaos and world war are some sort of 'answer'. As if God can be 'sped up' by mere mortals!

If you wish to view a previously published horoscope of the April 15, 2014 Lunar Eclipse set for Washington DC and containing the havoc-wreaking Cardinal Grand Cross, please click here.

Plus, if you haven't seen it yet a view of the April 29, 2014 Solar Eclipse horoscope may be in order as well.

*Utopians, zealots, and anarchists are unmasked by Reinhold Ebertin as actors on the world stage described by planet Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries, as it is now. The Cardinal Square between Uranus (progress; sudden events; the new) and Pluto in Capricorn (power elite; older generation; status quo types) shows an ongoing generational battle for control...ex: 'power games with important consequences' (Tyl)--basically the old order vs the new order with the rest of us stuck in the middle and being lied to by Washington and by any other global capital you'd care to name.

Presidents' Day Feb 17, 2014: a T-Square for a radical planet

It seems rather interesting that on this Presidents' Day 2014 a T-Square forms over head between the Jupiter-Pluto opposition (Can/Cap axis) squaring radical Uranus @10Ari06, America's 'totem planet' of freedom, independence, and revolution.

And of course you know that Ebertin describes Uranus when in Mars-ruled Aries as dreamy Utopians fanatically fighting, violent, and filled with blind zeal. And you know one example of their 'dream': the determination to force the world into Global Governance and under their thumbs--those kind of people. What's interesting to me is that today's degree of planet Uranus when rounded up for its Sabian Symbol to "11Aries" "The President of the Country."

Now this word picture could refer to any country's president, even Russia's Putin with so much of the world's current emphasis upon the Sochi Olympic Games, but writing from Stars Over Washington, I naturally think first of President Obama. Especially since transit Jupiter @10Can55Rx is amongst America's natal planets in Cancer (3--14 degrees: Venus, Jupiter, and Sun, the president) and tr Pluto continues to oppose US natal Sun which shows the titanic power struggles Mr. Obama is in process of negotiating (as if creepy Pluto of the Underworld--The Global Banking Syndicate, its allies, and political puppets--can be reasoned with!)

Uranus "11Aries" = IDEALIZATION...positive expression: the self-sacrifice required of anybody who would become the creative representative of eternal value; negative (unconscious/shadow side): an often well-meaning but usually destructive assertiveness or vain pretense.

Boston Tea Party Dec 17, 1773: Sun Sag-Moon AQ

With all the to-do this week over the apparent split between establishment Republicans and the party's congressional Tea Party members, I became curious to reconsider the horoscope of the original Boston Tea Party which occurred on December 17, 1773 in Boston Harbor in protest against taxes.

As you see from the date, the Boston Tea Party (BTP) has its 240th birthday coming up on Tuesday, December 17, 2013, the date of a Full Moon @25Gem26, a fulfillment or culmination indicator. This Full Moon degree conjoins the 5:45 pm LMT chart's Midheaven if we base the BTP's natal horoscope on the historical hour of 5:45 pm LMT which some sources cite for the sassy event which gives a Solar Return 2013 horoscope (SR) for 11:38:29 pm EST on Dec 17th. The tea-dumping by Freemasons dressed as 'Indians' is reported to have taken place between approximately 6 pm and 7 pm. A 7:00 pm LMT chart shows '30 Cancer' rising, the Daughters of the American Revolution Sabian Symbol. Appropriate, don't you think?

In the SR 2013 chart, Sun @26Sag24 conjoins the IC (The Drain; Endings; Separations; Domestic Scene) and the SR Moon is @5Can09 in Return 10th house conjoining US natal Jupiter (5Can56--'6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests.") Rising is 26Vir30 and contentious Mars @5Lib11, plus, this SR Ascendant also brings up the BTP's Pre-Natal Eclipse degree of 24Vir00 in the 10 North Saros Series. 10N originally manifested on April 25, 944 (OS) with Sun-Moon @9Tau53; karmic Saturn (loss, delay; restriction; regulations and laws) @00Can53, a karmic World Point of Manifestation and Prominence.

Of note may be other events and personages for which 10N is the Pre-Natal Eclipse (PE); they include: Aaron Burr (Feb 6, 1756), the 4th Amendment (Dec 15, 1791), the KKK's Albert Pike, Confederate War General and grand poo-bah of the Freemasons (b. Dec 29, 1809 and a major proponent of the Great Plan which we now see taking shape so definitely as to be undeniable, police state and all--see video below), Meriwether Lewis' alleged suicide (Oct 11, 1809 Nashville TN), Lincoln's Gettysburg Address (Nov 19, 1863), and the bossy Bilderberg Group (May 29--31, 1954.)

10N themes include a strong emphasis on communications; frustrating or inhibiting events occur via news, paperwork, or a young person; tiredness and a drained feeling are attached (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

A 10N Solar Eclipse last manifested on February 7, 2008 @17AQ45, what I have called the 'Unmasking Eclipse' since '18AQ' is the "A Man Unmasked" degree. And the eclipse occurred in the middle of the Bush-Cheney Great Heist of America's National Treasury which brought about the collapse of our economy, a near-global crash, and the theft of millions of Americans' financial lives and employment prospects.

The BTP's natal Moon (the people) on Dec 17, 1773 was @21AQ21 near what turned out to be our nation's natal Moon position and this gives the BTP a Fire-Air Sun-Moon 'live wire' blend full of ideas, bluster, and possibly eloquence. It's the combo of the visionary Utopian idealist (see Albert Pike) and it imprints the original Boston Tea Party with a word picture or "Image for Integration":

"On a tour of primitive lands, a university professor goes through a tribal initiation and becomes a blood brother of the chief." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Hmmm...reminds me of fake Indians tossing Britain's tea into Boston Harbor and of the initiation rites of Freemasonry and other secret societies but I shall leave it to you, dear reader, to make other historical and modern-day connective links!

For further reading see Albert Pike Letter to Mazzini or watch a brief video presentation on Pike whose statue still stands on Capitol Hill:

FYI: there are religious references about the End Days and a Third World War between Christians and Muslims at the end of this video presentation.

Uranus-Pluto square ramps up w Occupy Wall Street abuses by cops

Riots, protests, and violence from Uranus-Pluto square energies are occurring worldwide, as astrologers expected, and no less so than in American cities such as New York where police officers are abusing power and injuring peaceful, inconvenient demonstrators on orders, no doubt, to protect the status quo of corporate interests.

We may never know if 'black shirts' are involved (political agents planted to trigger police brutality toward peaceful protesters and make a movement 'look bad') on this the First Anniversary of Occupy Wall Street (Sept 17, 2011) but depending on how neocon Romney operatives inspired by such characters as Karl Rove spin the current mayhem against Occupiers and President Obama's re-election campaign, it may eventually become transparent that someone is in Mitt's woodpile and trying to score points for his deservedly-desperate presidential aspirations.

Now I've never embedded a Tweeted photo before so I hope you can view the following *Occupy Congress image:

Astrologically, we may take the 2010 conjunction to the Aries Point (00Ari00, a World Point of Manifestation) by political revolutionary and rebel Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries as zealots and radical 'Utopians', as Reinhold Ebertin describes in his book The Combination of Stellar Influences. And, of course, Uranus remains in one sign of the Zodiac for approximately seven years. Perhaps you'll agree that this astro-description covers folks of the Tea Party Movement (co-opted by corporate interests such as the Koch Brothers--'blind zealots'), and simultaneously the Occupy Movement. One group wants genuine and beneficial change for society, and the other is faking it on that score and is determined to implement and shove dire conditions, austerity, misery, and an Ayn-Randesque "survival of the fittest" government that rides roughshod over the lives of all non-wealthy American people--particularly the weak, elderly, ill, and poor among us. And the austerity would affect rank and file Tea Party members, too--now won't they be surprised if their favorite radical Utopians get their sinister way?

So! November 6th soon cometh--which America do You prefer to live in?

*Interesting that tomorrow's first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street--September 17--is also the anniversary of the US Congress--September 17, 1787...creaking along with very poor aprroval ratings and under constant threat at 225 years old. And non-amusingly for those of us who prefer a sovereign, intact United States of America and working, honorable Congress, we can use the one-year-for-one-degree method for insight into the present condition of Congress: 225 years = 225 degrees = 7 signs (7 x 30) + 15 degrees = '15 Scorpio' (= year 2012) which in Sabian Symbols is quite descriptive of the negative, shadow side of how most of Congress behaves itself these days:

"Children Playing Around Five Mounds of Sand" (the wrong thing to build any House upon): "NAIVETE...neg: wholly purposeless ineptitude."

Plus, 15 Scorpio is the Eagle Point! Sounds more like the ethereal phoenix some have always claimed represents our nation rather than the Eagle. Guess the fire the ancient phoenix myth requires--so that a 'New Order' can spring from the Old--is part of the Republican Party's Austerity Plan for America a la the Romney-Ryan ticket. For after all, Pluto-Chiron's Statism + Corporatism = Fascism, said Mussolini.

But,'s painful to type it but President Obama is under the sway of Pluto-Chiron and its Plutocrat warmongers, too. Exs: 1. US Secondary Progressed Pluto-Chiron midpoint @8Pis18 = US SP Sun (the leader.) 2. US Inaugural 2009 Midheaven @26Cap10--the Goal of the US Presidency--was conjoined by the transiting Pluto-Chiron midpoint @25Cap48 at noon est on January 20, 2009 at the Capitol Building, which also highlights US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx opposite our spying, propandistic natal Mercury Rx at Inaugural IC 2009, aka, The Drain.

Now what are We the People willing to do about all the corruption? Support Occupy Congress and the occupation of the Wall Street lairs of Big Casino Gamblers whom We the People were forced by Congress to bail out after Bush's Big Heist???

GOP vs Women and Moon Wobble Aug 22-23 2012

August 2012: A Wobbly Moon and an Unstable Political Platform

by Jude Cowell

The peak period of the August 2012 Moon Wobble is well-explained here plus, on a Mundane Astrology level we may wish to consider the public mood (Mundane Moon = the public) through the signs of Libra (cool, detached, mental), Scorpio (intense, passionate, emotional), and on into Sagittarius (broadening, searching, creative.)

The 2012 Wobble began in July and reached a critical period between August 13--20 as the flap over Rep. Todd Akin's antiquated remarks about rape and pregnancy broke into the 24/7 news cycle (apparently you cannot have been raped if you find yourself pregnant because women are said to possess an ability to "secrete secretions" which 'prevent pregnancy', an old husband's tale repackaged.) The influence of the Moon Wobble peaks between August 21 and August 23, 2012 and you see a dual image below of both charts--lower left = August 21, 2012 12:00 am edt set for Washington DC; upper right horoscope is for August 23 11:59:59 pm edt; Moon ranges from 13 Libra 35 to 25 Scorpio 58 and will enter Mutable (unstable, changing) Sagittarius as Luna's Wobble begins to steady the last week of August:

Now I don't know if you can read my scribbles written on and around the chart but if so, you'll find several notations not covered in the text of this post; click image to enlarge.

Moon Wobble periods are times of irritability and unstable conditions when achievements on behlaf of The People may be reversed--or at least, the GOP is now more open during this election year in their attempts to destroy decades of societal progress for women and for others while pretending to care so very much about unborn babies. If they have their way about repealing legal abortion in the US, will state orphanges also be featured in their grand schemes?

You will discover many on your own, yet there are a few chart details I wish to cover in particular in this post for they relate to the reputed War on Women (Mars-Moon) which the Republican Party is, in my opinion, waging as they attempt to repeal our rights including the right to a safe abortion when necessary, and the right to vote in our alleged 'democracy' (you know--like the much-touted purple fingers of Afghanistan.) May I be honest with you about a very sensitive subject? Abortions are performed way too often in America but bossy old men don't belong in the doctor's consultation room. (What about "smaller government", GOP? It would be a ridiculously big job to impose control over every single pregnancy in this country! Are you daft?)

My deepest feeling about the unfortunate circumstance in our nation where the smallest being among us, a fetus, is not safe from dire threat is that instead of inventing erection-enhancing drugs, someone in charge should have been encouraging and teaching men how to keep their pants zipped. As usual with misogynists and political opportunists, the culpability of the men involved is rarely if ever mentioned much less honestly addressed or corrected.

Okay, now take a look at the charts as Earth's Moon Wobbles, unstable circumstances fluctuate, and people become even more irritated than they were before! And note that the Republican Party's *natal North Node 00Gem33 Stationary was 'hit' by the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse 00Gem20 showing that they actually think the 'time has come' for their obsessive ideas to finally be accepted!

On August 21 at 12:00 am edt Washington D.C., Luna sailed over 13Lib36 (about to enter the via combusta degrees, if you use such an antique astrological factor within the Tropical Zodiac. So an unstable, wobbling Moon enters her peak zone as she approaches US natal Saturn 14Lib48 with any or all of the implications a Moon-Saturn combination denotes: seriousness, hard feelings, restrictions on women--I'm lookin' at You, Republican mysoginists), depression, hard work...yet also direction, strategy, and ambition. Also, the Moon rises with lovely Arcturus (a different approach which women need now if we're to put these evolutionary cavemen with delusions of Theocracy in their place: the 18th century.)

A great study if you have a chance is to read the Sabian Symbols for each degree of the Moon Wobble in all phases, but here we shall discuss only the peak period with a bit about the end, the end, for it involves none other than the 2012 Republican Convention--in fact, recent events concerning the definition of rape, controlling, fear-inducing, power-grabbing Pluto's province, abortion concerns (Pluto = surgery) and the restriction of women's rights is precisely what Moon (women) Wobble (going back on previous meanings, definitions, laws, concepts, amount of control, etc) which the GOP plans to establish in order to force the American people to behave like it's pre-1900.

The Moon Wobble horoscopes contain certain planetary pairs with great influence such as: Sun-Neptune (opposition of August 23 across the Virgo-Pisces axis of victimization, with its potentials for over-promising, secrets and mysteries, betrayals and suspicions, false images and masks, and what must first be present: self-delusion); Saturn-Pluto = NN: misery of the masses (I think of Ryan's 'budget plan' for misery is its goal--this midpoint picture is found in both charts and also brings in war since '1Sag' = "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire." However, it seems to me that Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, and crew consider themselves to be 'warriors on a mission' of some quixotic kind.

Plus, whenever war is involved (and even when it's not), we should admit that rape and unplanned pregnancies must be constant concerns of our female soldiers serving in the US military. Such brazen men ought to be ashamed but it seems that our military hierarchy's emphasis upon 'honor' only applies from men to men for many of them, including officers. My suspicion is that sub-standard applications were accepted for use as canon fodder and perhaps some number of them were rapists before they joined the military. Sorry to say it, but there it is. (As always, feel free to disagree!)

And Then There's Testy Mars-Saturn

So as you see between August 21 to August 23, the Moon translates light from restrictive Saturn (here, signifying Republicans, it seems) to testosterone-driven Mars, both in the closing degrees of Libra, a sign of war and of balance.

As the Moon unsteadily wobbles up to the Mars-Saturn duo (harmful or destructive energy; inhibited or destroyed vitality--Ebertin), there are three midpoint pictures which form as Luna translates while reflecting the frustrating stop-go energies of Mars-Saturn, aka, the controlling male...any, all, or none may apply:

Moon-Mars = Saturn: suppressed feelings; dissatisfaction; controlled passion (were that the case--jc); quarrels; a separated or suffering wife (Ebertin); maternal panic; taking responsibility for correcting uncertain activities; obligations when caring for others (Munkasey.)

Mars-Saturn = Moon: a weak will; depressive moods; lack of courage; illness; separation or death of females (Ebertin) (reminds me of an old method used in desperate, unfortunate situations, coat-hanger abortions--jc); anger over restrictions; fluctuating energy (Munkasey.)

Moon-Saturn = Mars:feeling inferior; self-control to the point of torment; lack of determination; soul conflicts (Ebertin); rushing into activities in order to protect the family (or, The Family which is one name for the Global Syndicate of imperial bankers, politicians, Vulcans of War, and religious figures--jc); breaking family bonds (Munkasey) utopian globalists are determined to do--jc.

Let's close with two other midpoint pictures in play during the peak period of the August 2012 Moon Wobble. One involves an apex Saturn, the other (Aug 23) ropes in the Moon-Mars conjunction @29Lib07 of August 22: the conjunction's Saturn/ASC which relates to 'curtailment of programs for the disadvantaged' (Munkasey)--thing is, what sort of morals (Saturn) does it take to sleep at night while you further and grievously disadvantage the disadvantaged? Sheesh! Preying on the weak among us is so...Pluto-Chiron of them.

What a bunch of Dickens-era jack**ses...

Mercury-Pluto = Saturn: quarrels and nagging; increased ruthlessness when locating sources of rumors or information; annoyance that secrets have leaked; demands that info be used as planned (Munkasey); exposure to heavy and bitter attacks aggressiveness and persistence in quests for sexual power, control, and domination.

You'll note that it's Mercury-Pluto (obsessed with power) content found in the initial solar eclipse of the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse Series which now infuses these social wedge topics and issues--and Election 2012 rhetoric. Yet with these weighty concerns and extreme amounts of media attention and hyperbole they divert us too much, suspiciously so! Wonder what's going on behind the curtain over there, the one we're not supposed to notice?

After Akin: RNC 2012's Extreme Platform

At the end of August comes a political convention where Mitt Romney, the Mormon candidate, will apparently be nominated for the presidency (unless a brokered convention breaks out! Big money and fraud are all that can save Mittens now.) The Moon Wobble will be a dissipating influence on RNC 2012 by then and we've been warned to expect a mysoginistic platform to be put forth (or, where the sun don't shine) by the GOP as it hurries to devolve itself further and hold high the Confederate Constitution. Freaky.

In mid-2010, a YOD pattern (special task; crisis; turning point) in the Republican Party's Secondary Progressions pointed at SP ASC with SP Mercury and SP Jupiter at its base. If memory serves, SP Mercury and Jupiter (grand plans and schemes) are both retrograde in the SP chart--like the GOP's old-fashioned policies and to be announced platform of austerity, withdrawal, and restriction--aka, Saturnian themes and demands. But with even fewer restrictions on the wealthy!

And yes, I do hear the background noise from the June 5, 2012 Venus Transit (paternalism on display in high relief) accompanying our current political condition with its threats of dire and devised social ills, this post is meant to be little more than an updated if wobbly word picture of the media-dubbed War on Women and the Republican Party, a political faction of dominating ol' cusses and rapists-by-proxy, as they seem to be purposefully styling themselves as such, I do declare.

Why, the extreme backwardness of the GOP's regressive, odd, and perverted ideas about women and the world in general is enough to plum give me the vapors.


Republican Party July 6, 1854 5:00 pm LMT Jackson, Michigan; ASC 9Sag47; MC 29Vir32 conjunct contentious Mars 28Vir45; Sun 14Can26 conjunct 8th cusp of Corporatism and Wealth; Moon 27Sco49 in the 12th house of Politics, Backdoor Deals, and Karma--conjunct Mitt Romney's natal Moon-Jupiter conjunction, all of which conjoin President Obama's natal MC; GOP natal Saturn 10Gem22 at DESC is now being transited by Jupiter in Gemini, a time when certain restrictions and burdens may be eased if not all together removed, and advancement may result. Additionally, the next Solar Eclipse @ 21Sco56 (the PE of Election Day 2012 and of Inauguration Day 2013: 'joy through commitment'--Brady) conjoins the GOP's natal 12th cusp, and the word 'commitment' nearly contains the name of Mit(t) whose natal planets and points are also linked to the Moon Wobble horoscopes of August 2012.

'Revolution' Anonymous (video) w Uranus in US 4th house

America at Home: Utopians, Temples, and Anonymous

by Jude Cowell

Not only did Uranus reach the Aries Point of World Manifestation, first in June 2010, and repeating in 2011, but the Aries Point itself (00Ari00) conjoins a little something astrologers call the 4th house of America's natal chart (if you use the Sibly version--US birth data below.)

As natal horoscopes of nations go, the 4th H describes much about the nation itself, its Roots and cell memory of antecedents such as How we began--and also How we will end. It describes our homeland. The cusp (beginning) of the 4th H is the IC (Immum Coeli) which symbolically represents Midnight. The IC is the most hidden point in any chart, hints at End of Life Conditions, and is called The Drain, if you want to face the truth of it.

(You probably practice more Natal Astrology than I do and here I am telling you! How crazy is that?)

Our 4th Home on the Range...Mama, Pass the Apple Pie a la Mode

As the natural house of the Moon (Cancer; the womb; nurturing; security), the 4th H denotes what we need in order to feel psychologically 'at home' and it's where we feel most secure (assuming that we do.) The cusp of the opposite house, the 10th H of Career, Aspirations, and Public Standing, is the most visible point in any chart, there at the other end of the axis, the Career/Home axis, aka, the Parental axis for reasons beyond the scope of this article.

The Sanctuary of a Temple

Well, imagine my surprise today when I took a new site I found on Twitter called Temple Illuminatus for a test drive and soon discovered there a Group: Anonymous.

"The Temple is a Social Sanctuary that is open to all paths and people," says the site. Which obviously includes the hacktivist network, Anonymous with a video message meant for you in case you haven't received it yet...and do pass it around, if you will!


America's Sibly natal horoscope data: July 4, 1776 @ 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Sun Cancer/Moon Aquarius, a misty Water-Air blend indicating the American people's traditional concern for the public welfare, nurturing the world tendencies, and acting as protector of the underdog. That's our traditional personality until they screwed with us by their constant (mis)use of tiresome divide-and-conquer tactics of all kinds on every level of life.

American Consumers' Dream: wahh-h-h-hh! me want more! now!

Through our senses and emotions they manipulate us to a shameful degree.

Then there are The Austeres who, to save a buck to fund their quixotic notions, want civilization catapulted back into the late 1800s/early 1900s, if we let them have their mean-spirited way. They talk of 'redistribution of wealth' as a stop gap against aiding those in need but isn't that just what they've perpetrated these last decades as the world's resources were concentrated within the hands of an unelected power elite. They thieve because they can.

Hold On There, Mabel Sue

A fly in the ointment of the Great Planners is that they are in a very small minority, while the rest of us, the 99%, assert without doubt that austerity is "not acceptable", as politicians are fond of saying. Yet a fool knows that the Universe needs both concepts for balance yet the cosmos is resplendant with--not Saturnian austerity--but Jupiterian abundance!

Plus, intrinsic character doesn't change even after 235 years for it is imprinted upon us when we are born (see natal chart!) In Astrology it is said that, 'How something (or someone) begins is how they will end' or, perhaps you prefer the maxim that 'the end is in the beginning'.

It is. Ex: US natal IC 00Ari53 = Aries Point (00Ari00) ruled by contentious Mars, planet of motivation, energy, action, initiative, activism, the military, police, war, violence, and more. Yet any chart factor may express positively rather than negatively depending on motivation--it's where free will comes in, and where character always rules in the end.

So what is our motivation these days? To remain that elusive, mystical creature, An American? Is security (bestowed upon us by those who make the threats) worth our freedom? Seems we've already made that trade and it was, of course, the attacks of 9/11/01 that made the diff. All trembled while few noticed that the power that day's events handed the US government on a platter is reason enough to consider the possibility of false flag op tactics being used, but that's only my opinion as I gaze from afar (GA to NYC.) Yet 9/11's void-of-course Moon (We The People) tells a tale of her own, as previously discussed.

Utopians to America

We The People are We The People as long as we feel and say that we are. And personally, I'm not ready to give up the helm of America to the control of The Booted or to their syndicate bosses--in fact, the sharing we've been doing with plutocrats, oligarchs, and monarchs over the decades isn't working for 99% of us--and I refuse to give up on America in any way, disruptive anarchist Uranus to US 4th house/IC stirring up things and making radical changes in the Homeland, or not.

Reinhold Ebertin wrote that Uranus in Aries represents the 'Utopians' and you know how bossy they can be. So if quirky Uranus, planet of radical politics, anarchy, rioting, upheaval, sudden events, lightening, America, and many other things--is your cuppa planetary tea, you may wish to view a version of the Uranus Direct Station horoscope which times a recent celestial event on December 10, 2011, just hours prior to the Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11 (horoscopes shown, set for DC.)

As you know, Uranus was discovered in 1781 @ 25Gem by William Herschel and thus its concepts are deeply imprinted upon the national psyches of France and America in particular with Uranian ideas and ideals such as: freedom, independence, liberty, equality, individual rights--plus, dissent, revolt, and revolution!

Well, how's your DNA, your cell memory? Are You a Child of the Revolution?

Just asking because these bossy meddlers and reptile-brained social tinkerers play for keeps.

Which means that they are not playing at all.

Occupy DC (video) w an Aries Moon! 12.5.11

CNN has the story of police surrounding a building Occupiers erected overnight against the chill of winter and which they occupied in hopes of keeping the structure intact--but the police lowered the boom anyway.

How descriptive of powerful, destructuring Pluto moving through form-building, Saturn-ruled Capricorn is that?

Here's a clip from CNN's report on last night's stand-off between police and Occupiers in MacPherson Park, DC:

Read Occupy DC's statement concerning the wooden shelter and police actions.

Monday December 5, 2011

Today, as Occupiers zero in on Washington DC--where 'The People's House', the White House (actually a Masonic White Lodge but who's quibbling?)--is located, Sun is in questing Sagittarius, and Moon is in Aries, a position I've referred to on this blog as the "I AM The People" Moon placement because revolutionary leader *Robespierre tended to pontificate such malarkey about himself and his Aries Moon as part of a justification for imprisoning and guillotining The People of France during The Reign of Terror (1790s.)

However! When you have thousands of Americans on behalf of the 99% of us petitioning what was once our government as Occupiers now do, it's okay by me to say, "I AM The People" when the Occupying Moon is in Mars-ruled Aries!

Sun Sag-Moon Aries is a volatile and dramatic Fire-Fire blend giving today's energies a boost of passion through expression of deeply held beliefs. The combo may show such an abundance of enthusiasm that others may be disregarded or scattered in the process.

As you know, Sagittarius is ruled by expansive Jupiter so there's a me-only Sun/Jupiter link which on its highest level works on behalf of The Collective and can easily see the broader picture. Meanwhile, Moon in me-first Aries may narrow the view of the many to a level of self-interest. Yet this also is okay by me since our politicians haven't been serving We The People for decades but have kowtowed and sold us out to so-called 'special interests' which, really, aren't so much special as extremely selfish and exclusive.

And so We The People stand up for ourselves at last!

Sun Sag/Moon Aries adds an undertone of impatience to today's events in the US and in top regions in the news today such as Russia and Europe. Impatience may be shown on the protesters' side and/or on the police's side (which includes the politicians' side, if you can figure out where that currently shifts--with the 1%, it seems.)

Yes, stand-offs tend to occur as immutable forces are demonstrated cantankerously on all sides of the issues and with Jupiter (growth; abundance) in stand-off (opposition) with contracting, restrictive Saturn these days, we feel the non-compromising energy all around and within us. Nations and leaders are no exceptions.

So today with Sun in Sag/Moon in Aries, we may expect subjective intuition to replace objective reasoning--on all sides. This blend prefers that the world come to it rather than the other way around. Well, various Occupier organizations are coming to DC! And Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Nicholas Sarkozy (aka, 'Merkozy') will attend the EU Summit in bossy Brussels this Friday--two Mohammeds come to The Mountain!

(See EU birth data, below.)

Perhaps you'll agree that the blend's 'Images for Integration' describe events today in the US and in foreign lands as well...see what you think:

Sun Sag-Moon Aries: "A mature student discovers her convictions and debating talents through confronting the corruption of academia...He who would be King postpones the coronation for a trek through the Himalayas."

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

If you have massive education loans outstanding, you recognize the first Image all too well. And if you live in the EU, good luck. Seriously. The EU natal chart's Partnership angle (Desc) in late Pisces has disruptive anarchist Uranus (in Aries = 'Utopians', says Ebertin) sitting upon it meaning that, while unions don't have to break up under this transit, they are certain to change, perhaps beyond recognition before the piper is finally paid.

Here are two famous quotes from people who share today's Sun Sag/Moon Aries blend which you may find of interest:

"Always do right; this will gratify some people and astonish the rest." --Mark Twain

"Well, if I called the wrong number why did you answer the phone?" --James Thurber


*Maximilian Robespierre: May 6, 1758 (NS) 2:00 am LMT Arras, France; Rodden Rating AA; Sun 15Tau24, Moon 27Ari51, Mercury 5Gem15 and out-of-bounds (half crazy!); vengeful Venus is in early Aries; Mars and Neptune are conjunct in egoistic Leo; Jupiter and Pluto conjoin in Sagittarius and are both Rx; Saturn and Uranus are 20 degrees apart in mystical Pisces; closest applying aspect to natal Sun in beastly Taurus is a square from testy Mars indicating a risk-taker and a bully.

European Union: January 1, 1958 12:00 am CET Brussels Belgium (historical record); the EU is a speculator-grand scheme kind of entity for bubbly Jupiter and Neptune conjoin. And with transiting Uranus in Aries on its natal Descendant, the Utopians are in the union.

Note: the suspension of Republican candidate Herman Cain's campaign over the weekend has resulted in a rise in Newt Gingrich's favorability rating, and in a brief Poem for Herman Cain being perpetrated by yours truly...

Natal Horoscope: Grover Norquist (w video)

“Our goal is to shrink government to the size where we can drown it in a bathtub, ” said Grover Norquist.

Spoken like a true Utopian Globalist! The following analysis is one astrologer's view of...

The Natal Horoscope of Grover Norquist, Political Strategist

by Jude Cowell

Mother Jones has an article on the eerie influence of Grover Norquist which prompted me to have a peek at his (noon) natal horoscope.

And here's a very interesting profile of him which includes his links to Jack Abramoff and Iraqi oil, among other things. And Speaker John Boehner just called Norquist "Some random person" when asked about closing tax loopholes for the oil industry.

Born on October 19, 1956 in Sharon, PA, Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform (founded 1985) and co-founder of the Islamic Free Market Institute, has Sun in Libra, and Moon in Aries if born before 7:07 pm est on that date.

If born after 7:07 pm, his personality takes on a Sun Libra/Moon Taurus hue but odds are, Norquist is a Sun Libra/Moon Aries blend, born near the Full Moon either way.

Here are the earliest and latest positions of the Sun and Moon on the date of his birth:

Earliest: Sun 25Lib47; Moon 19Ari31--Latest: Sun 26Lib47; Moon 2Tau41.

Since his birth time is unknown, the following analysis is based on a noon chart which shows 00Cap17 rising with 24Lib27 at Midheaven (w stars Arcturus and Spica); Hour of Mars. Midpoint pictures included in this post are in effect no matter his birth time.

Please click image to enlarge chart; some US natal planets are penned in (pink), today's transits (Nov 4, 2011) are highlighted in blue around the chart; tr Pluto is triggering two natal midpoints which are notated, lower left and lower right.

With nebulous Neptune @ 00Sco00, anti-tax warrior Norquist has an out-of-sign Sun/Neptune conjunction which is similar to having lots of Pisces energy in a chart (fishy!) especially in the realms of ego and life goals (Sun.) Naturally, Neptune has a masking effect upon the Sun's vitality and helps describe the behind-the-scenes nature of Mr. Norquist's political career and activities.

You may find of interest another article The Banishment of Grover Norquist which addresses just such Sun/Neptune issues. (Banishment is a Neptunian word along with veiling, masking, hiding, and such. Fraudulent, false, and idealistic would be others, along with his "drown it in a bathtub" quote!)

Yes, he's quite the watery, elusive varmint!

Sun conj Neptune gives him a 'veiled outlook on life' which allows Norquist to avoid unpleasant challenges as he easily as he ignores personal responsibilities. A personal reality is created in his mind--or by his mind--which bears little resemblance to facts as others understand them. Living in a self-created bubble is often another way to describe Sun-Neptune folk, so working in Politics, can spin be far behind?

And isn't a 'personal reality bubble' one of the tactics Republicans (and other politicians) use all the time when 'answering' questions as if on a totally different plane--or instead, they answer questions they wish had been asked? Perhaps Mr. Norquist's method through use of talking points is in evidence here for he's been at it for years starting with Nixon's 1968 campaign.

Supporting his Sun/Neptune traits is natal Mars in Pisces (13;43; ruled by Jupiter and Neptune) conjoining Fixed Star Achernar ('crisis at the end of the river; risk of rapid endings'.) Mars in Pisces is challenged to act directly and be clear in his motivations; unconscious resentments are harbored and repressed anger can lead to neuroses. Direct confrontations are avoided, as with Sun/Neptune, and secret means are used against opponents. Others may not trust him as he'd wish.

Any negative aspects in a chart intensifies problems when Mars is in watery Pisces--here, Mars is sesquisquare Sun and Neptune and is opposed by Venus 15Vir40. A Venus/Mars opposition is problematic as well and tends to create relationship troubles particularly in the realm of sexual expression. All oppositions carry Self v Others vibes (Ari/Lib axis) and indicates that Mr. Norquist's feelings are extremely sensitive and easily hurt--plus, conflicts arise over joint finances.

There's also a wide opposition between Mars and Jupiter 21Vir32 (conjunct Fixed Star Denebola, keywords: 'to go against society; out of the mainstream'--which has a Neptunian otherworldly/escapist tone to it.) However, a politics-inspired Mars/Jupiter opposition tends to seek out challenges, take risks, and may resent people who are deemed to be somehow superior. Grandstand plays come naturally!

Another politically interesting factor in Mr. Norquist's natal chart is a Saturn/Pluto square--the 'sore loser' aspect. This energy also describes the Republican Party seen in high relief with their obstructionism against President Obama. This cuss'ed square is part of Dick Cheney's Neptunian personality as well--if you will.

A Saturn/Pluto square person tends to be defensive toward social responsibilities which are viewed as obstacles to their self-interested goals. (And if you're a neocon warmonger, you want all the funds you can get to start wars you can hugely profit from while ignoring the basic needs of the American people. And promote expansion of the one-world-government Utopian Globalists are so determined to force upon us. Sad to say, it's pretty much already here.)

Another political factor is Norquist's Uranus/Chiron opposition which identifies him as what I tend to call a Chiron-Uranus type in government. Falling across the Leo (Uranus)--Aquarius (Chiron) axis of Self Will, this opposition denotes that he may be quite a cantankerous cuss, but with an outer demeanor that's Neptunian and squishy. His behavior (shown by the sign of Uranus) is proudly Leo, sign of the natural ruler.

A helpful Saturn/Uranus trine is great for it gives him a container (Saturnian form) in which to pour his Uranian ideals with ease and the talent to mobilize all his resources, knowledge, and experience. Good intuition allows him to take calculated risks and the trine provides him with leadership ability.

Mercury, planet of thinking processes, oration style, communication, and planning tactics, is @ 10Lib52 and conjoins his Syzygy Moon (last lunation prior to birth) which in this case was a New Moon, so Sun/Moon = Mercury: using education and reasoning to progress through life; searching for opportunities to apply knowledge; an association with young people.

An Air trine between Mercury to Chiron in Aquarius makes him a 'wise old soul' with occultist abilities and healing talent (Clow.) This trine and the opposition to Uranus are the two major aspects made to natal Chiron.

Now with Moon opposing Sun, whether in Aries or Taurus, natal Pluto 29Leo59 (conjunct Royal Star of Persia, Regulus ('success if revenge is avoided'--otherwise, all that's gained will be taken away one day) is the Thales planet in the chart for it trines Moon and sextiles Sun, thus aiding the opposition between the luminaries.

Having occultist talents, Mr. Norquist has managed to use Thales Pluto to his advantage in the stand-off between Sun (conscious) and Moon (unconscious), and, of course, saboteur Pluto has a great interest in the intrigues and power plays of Politics.

And with Moon opposed by Neptune, well, then escapist tendencies are increased, and sensitivity is deepened; illusions are created about the self and others which can cause much confusion and estrangements in relationships, and this can make working alone preferable. America would profit if only he could remember that The Ideal is an illusion that does not exist in this old world! But I suppose his Saturn/Uranus trine keeps hoping and thinks it knows best for all of us.

As far as his authority planet, Saturn, goes, you see a Saturn/North Node conjunction, the source of much of his control. This is an indicator of conservatism with observance of protocol important for approaching those in power. This timing ability has helped him to further his personal advancement but at the expense of enslavement to the lowest common denominator of accepted standards (Sakoian.) Saturnian control/authority is 'on his path' (NN.)

NN 29Sco17 (a critical-crisis 29th degree) has an interesting Sabian Symbol especially considering Mr. Norquist's past association with Ronald Reagan: '30Sco' = "A Halloween Jester". Reminds me of the Carter-Reagan October Surprise (Iranian hostages were released mere minutes after Reagan was inaugurated---was Grover involved in the charade and its arms deals?)

(Astro-note: 29Sco45 is the Inauguration 2009's Moon--we the people--degree which shows that the American people were already in dire financial circumstances the moment that Barack Obama took office--Scorpio = big business; betrayals.)

Now here are Grover's natal midpoint pictures which do not depend on knowing his exact time of birth; as always, any, all, or none may apply:

Jupiter/Uranus = Pluto: strong awareness of objectives; an unusual striving for knowledge; far-seeing creative activity; a sudden change in financial conditions; extreme efforts to produce novel changes in life; a major reworking of designs/ideas to ensure their correct acceptance; devices with world-transforming potential.

Jupiter/Saturn = Sun: dreaming of a potential for actuality; demonstrating leadership; gaining experience; boasting; self-pride; liver disturbances cause moodiness; the bachelor.

Sun/Uranus = Venus: peculiar encouragements in financial pursuits; unique ways of expressing love.

Jupiter/Neptune = Mercury: misleading/misdirecting others' attention; talking a lot; putting on an act; raised hopes; skills with deceptive practices; self-study of magic or mysticism. (Jupiter-Neptune is the grand schemes-speculation-inflationary pair of planets; Mercury is thinking and plans--a perfect combo for a Utopian Globalist planning chaos for the world to be ruled by 'reason'--their own, not ours.)

Jupiter/NN = Sun: ease of contact with important people of power and influence; joining and benefiting from powerful, distinguished societies (he attended Harvard.)

In the noon chart, Jupiter/NN sits at MC (The Goal; Aspirations; Public Standing) which adds a 'career/pursuit of common interests' vibe to the picture as 'important people of power and influence' aid his career aspirations.

Norquist's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (PE) = 12 South

Grover Norquist was born into the 12 South Saros Series of Solar Eclipses which manifested on June 8, 1956 @ 18Gem01, the zodiacal degree of the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse (the next-up eclipse for us all.)

12S = successful outcomes to long term worries; a draining issue will suddenly clear with a good outcome (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)
(A SN eclipse indicates a loss of energy in affected matters.)

By degree (18Gemo1/11), the December 10th Lunar Eclipse may signify secrets or scandals being revealed concerning Mr. Norquist and may relate to this year into 2012, and/or to a time frame when the 12S last manifested on July 11, 2010 @ '19Can' (which marked the blown-up or blown-out BP well's finally being 'capped' in the Gulf of Mexico--but it's leaking, you know.)

Why, you may remember that back in the day, Grover Norquist was a registered lobbyist for BP! (scroll to end of page.)

(Note: 12S is the PE of America based on July 4, 1776 as our nation's official founding--then at 00Pis33, where transit Chiron Rx is now.)

Now you may wish to view the horoscope of the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse which is squared by Mars in Virgo. As such, a 'Grand Cross' is formed for the eclipse marks a Mars-opposite-natal-Mars transit for Mr. Norquist describing a time when other people's actions and purposes are diametrically opposed to one's own, and any aggression shown is met by an equal or greater amount of determination so he'll want to lay low behind the scenes even more than usual--if the revealing energies of the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse allow such escapism!

To close, here's Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) on the 1st of November making a statement about obstructionist Republicans who follow Grover Norquist like puppets. Perhaps it's his hypnotic, mystical Sun/Neptune with a Saturn/Pluto square keeping the Rs in goose-step!


If you need refreshing after such an abundance of Grover, why not check in with Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders?

Thom Hartmann is doing a great progressive broadcast today (Fridays at noon are 'Brunch with Bernie' Sanders) and Thom reports on 20 unemployed Occupiers' sit-in at Mitch McConnell's office yesterday to demand a meeting with the Republican senator--so they could tell him how badly Americans are suffering--but McConnell lead a filibuster on the floor all day so he could avoid them! Hope he was royally wumped out from doing so much 'work'.)

Tomorrow, November 5, 2011 is Bank Transfer Day if you haven't yet switched your accounts from the Big Banks. I switched two or three years ago and have been very happy with a credit union bank ever since.

And please remember to Move To Amend the Citizens United travesty of justice--sign the petition because Corporations Are Not People!

Occupy Wall Street (Sat-Uran-Plu): Roll Back the Reagan Tax Cuts!

As I searched for a particular reference hidden in the almost 3,000 entries on this blog (whew!), I ran across a previous post detailing the frustrating yet dynamic Cardinal T-Square between Saturn/Uranus (in opposition) pointing toward an apex (focal) Pluto.

On one level, we could say that 'old' (Saturn) is being 'transformed' (Pluto) into 'new' (Uranus, and in Aries that means, 'Utopia'--but that's bosh!)

If you click, please scroll down a ways into the post for the explanation of the midpoint picture formed in May 2011 between three heavy-weight planets...

Saturn = the past, Time, tradition, form, function, age, systems, scaffolds, responsibility, accountability, restriction, constriction, boundaries, bones, skin, teeth, spinal column, the status quo, delay, decay, long term efforts, patience, perseverance, endurance, and such.

Uranus = the future, futurism, creative genius, sudden inspirations, innovation, behavior, originality, Science, Astrology, upheaval, upsets, restlessness, quickness, sudden shocks, lightening, electricity, like a bolt from the blue, group activities, disruption, The Witness (a 'sudden sense of self'), The Awakener (in Aries, Uranus = *Utopians, anarchists, and/or radicals with political inclinations), the Higher Octave/Frequency of Mercury, oddness, eccentricity, separation, and more.

And Pluto? You mean Mr. Underworld, the Dragon who guards the world's riches? The Oligarchy of plutocrats under which we toil and struggle as billions of people teeter on the brink of enslavement or extinction?

Well, he-who-employs-assassins has become tiresome to type about, frankly. Pluto is apex planet in the Cardinal T-Square pattern, and an ace manipulator of the high-powered corporate executive kind. The full Cardinal midpoint picture info may be found by clicking the link above, if you wish.

Actually, I'll go ahead and tell you my guess: that the midpoint pic's "rebellion against one's lot in life" sums up quite well the general motivation/s of the Occupy Wall Street protesters, don't you think? Our younger generations are the ones whose futures have been stolen, purloined, embezzled, and gambled away with verve and insouciance.

So where else should OWS protesters be than occupying Wall Street? America needs to cease her occupation of foreign lands though Corporate America wishes that we-the-people not pay attention to that very inconvenient, bought-on-credit-card fact. Seems global bankers are up to their old Rothschildian tricks: they make much more money by making 'loans' to governments and by pushing private debt and responsibilities onto the public ledger.

Wall Street, Main Street, Pennsylvania Avenue: Jupiter-Neptune-Saturn

In these difficult days, there are calls for the Philanthropy of Jupiter and Neptune, not the mean old-fashioned stinginess of a sour, grouchy Saturn. Wall Street gentry should want to take a closer look at themselves and their anti-social behavior--and the news for them is, I for one don't want their stanky money. But I do want their control of the US government to erode and their crimes to be addressed and tried in an honest courtroom, not a whitewashing one.

Plus, I believe that fair taxes should be levied to re-balance society's financial inequality for our see-saw has thudded to one side and we can't get off the ground--we are in a word, oppressed. So Roll Back the Reagan Tax Cuts or raise taxes on the wealthy 1% of Americans at least for a period of time--say, three to five years perhaps? And wouldn't it be logical if those in charge kept in mind the old "If that doesn't work, try something else" strategy, as FDR and others have often said and used.

Then blessings shall be showered all around!

Occupy Wall Street Protesters Boo CEOs but Mourn Steve Jobs.

Hurrah! The coming together of movements and groups in NYC such as Occupy Wall Street, Labor Unions such as the Nurses' Union, Code Pink, Civil Rights activists, Gay-Lesbian activists, and other organizations, groups, and persuasions (protests are now happening in 500 US cities and counting!) shows that the Global Spirit of Revolution has finally infected America big time and my prayer is that progressive reforms that lift up The People will sweep across the US and every land!

Jupiter/Neptune, ruler/co-ruler of Mystical Pisces = Religion/Spirituality and Grand Schemes

Watery Neptune is, after all, about to dip her toe again into the compassionate tides of Pisces...but where we ultimately wash up depends on how we handle things from now on.

Here's the usual-suspect list of the well-connected and the speculating Forbes 400. Discretion is advised.

Enlightenment! and a Curious Transit to Thomas Paine's Natal Chart

Thomas Paine = Illuminati, Uranus in Aries = Radical Utopians: America's Destiny?

by Jude Cowell

Since I wrote a piece in 2006 on the Sun to Chiron-Chiron to Sun double transit to the natal horoscope of Thomas Paine, I have read more references to Paine as a Freemason (already known) and as one of the Illuminati of his day.

And if you've read this blog before, you know I'm not fond of those who descend either biologically or ideologically from Weishaupt's Illuminati sect nor am I fond of their global domination plans which seem in 2011 to be well underway for major implementation, perhaps within the much-touted and often feared Year 2012. Yet even they are subject to the natural law of karma and must reap what they sow, much as they prefer to think otherwise.

After all, in 2012 a major market crash is predicted by astrologers and economists alike which is the 'crisis of opportunity' ploy of operatives such as Henry Kissinger and others you and I could name. For Financial Astrology of the markets, I recommend the work of mundane astrologer Theodore White at Global Astrology. Crash-forecasting economists are all over the place so you'll have no problem locating all you want.

Paine, Jefferson, Franklin, and Their Secretive Pal, Adam Weishaupt

Well, perhaps it's impossible to be certain whether Paine and his 18th century Illuminati colleagues such as Thomas Jefferson (a Freemason and Illuminatist--Ben Franklin was a Mason and Rosicrucian, plus, a Rosicrucian decoder was found at Monticello in Jefferson's effects after his death) were duped by Weishaupt's Utopian ruse of an eventual America where we'd all skip around the Sweet Williams while ripe fruit fell from the vines and "reason" would 'perfect' us, making laws unnecessary)--or, whether they were complicit in wanting to establish a totalitarian (Orwellian) regime of complete surveillance and servitude as America's eventual destiny.

Yes, I do have a difficult time meshing the legends of our Founding Fathers based on what what they did and believed in the 1770s and beyond with Weishaupt's devilish Utopian ideals for complete control of mankind. Many of America's founders were Deists yet the principles of the Age of Reason (or, Age of Enlightenment) show a strain of naivety embedded in the same old argument set up by Lucifer--that mankind doesn't need heavenly precepts but can 'do it by himself'.

Speaking as a Christian, their 'Reason Is All' illusion is bosh to me!

Of course, astrologically speaking, man's reasoning ability is a function of Mercury with one of the Enlightenment's favorite planets, Uranus (The Awakener; The Witness), acting as Mercury's higher octave of creative inspiration--the visionary idea of genius that arrives suddenly like a bolt from the blue. I suspect ace deceiver Adam Weishaupt had a lot of such moments, at least in his own estimation.

One clue concerning the awareness of our Founding Fathers of America's ultimate Illuminati-esque destiny has to be the mysterious case of the Cloaked Man in Jefferson's Garden--the one who allegedly rode up out of the darkness with the design for America's Great Seal at-the-ready as Jefferson took a break from consideration of the design along with his colleagues. Perhaps it happened that way, perhaps not. And perhaps Thomas Paine, newly returned from France, WAS that man, as some believe, and I can't deny that the theory of the mystery man's identity as Paine is plausible (and he may also have been co-author of the Declaration of Independence with Jefferson)--if so, he was acting as an agent of Adam Weishaupt when he delivered the seal.

Check out the reverse of the Great Seal, if you haven't, or look at a dollar bill if you have one. The pyramid with the all-seeing eye as capstone is certainly of a Masonic persuasion and the all-seeing eye of surveillance may be said to point forward toward intrusive spy satellites circling the Earth as I type (and agencies monitoring our blogs, websites, emails, and bank accounts!)

And the "1776" on the seal and on paper currency may not actually refer to America's founding year but to the founding by Weishaupt of the Bavarian Illuminati Society on May 1, 1776. Cussedly, we pay homage to the Illuminati by celebrating 'May Day.'

So did Paine, Jefferson, Franklin, and others look forward to the collapsing of America as a sovereign nation--the one they risked their lives, families, and fortunes to create? Is a weird, chaotic, and savage 'Utopia' just around the corner?

What do you think?

Well, in The Combination of Stellar Influences, Reinhold Ebertin gives Uranus in Aries, its present position, as "Utopians" so we know that since 2010 such political radicals are 'in the house'--in the 4th house of America's natal chart, Sibly version (IC 00Ari53, conjunct the Aries Point of World Manifestation (00Ari00); IC = Endings; The Drain; the HOW? Point of any chart...instruments of our nation's demise?)

Uranus to IC may also relate to the House of Congress and the anarchistic, gridlocking Tea Party members (see a list of their names in this blog's sidebar) who campaigned on returning America to her former glory--a sentiment along the lines of Weishaupt's Utopian Dream of mankind's return to the Garden of Eden. But it seems to me that if that were possible, mankind would need God's cooperation to effect such a major change! And Weishaupt was anti-religion and anti-God--sorry, but man's 'reason' just can't do it.

And neither can 'religioso' candidates Michele Bachmann or Rick Perry.


Plus, the Bush-Cheney regime bombed the Holy Land where the Garden was located to smithereens, an indefensible action if one wants to cavort in the original Eden once again, and an imperial agenda which President Obama has followed since January 2009. Of course, as noted on this blog in 2008, Mr. Obama cannot discontinue the agenda of the plutonian one-world-government types because they and their bankers installed him in the White House and can take him out at their discretion if he doesn't play the Big Game to suit them. 'They' turn up these days in horoscopes as manipulative saboteur Pluto, apex planet in dynamic patterns such as T-Squares and the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Well, soon transiting Uranus will return to Aries Point and conjoin the US IC again with much upheaval, but since I'm blogging away from home this week, I don't have my Astrology software or an ephemeris to remind me of the date. Perhaps you'll wish to check it out for the US may experience an event on or near that date which relates to the disturbing topics mentioned in this post.

Now one never knows what quirky, disruptive Uranus will catalyze into action, early, on time, or belatedly. But one thing we can depend on--that the radical Thomas Paine will not be awakening from his Eternal Rest for his work here on Earth, whatever it may have been and for whatever reason, is most definitely done.


For Sun/Chiron info ('destiny unfolding'), please click on the link to Thomas Paine's double transit of 2006; for Cardinal Grand Cross/Crisis info, click on the Global Astrology link above.

As you know, the scientific Age of Enlightenment was marked by a Great Conjunction of futurist Uranus and dreamy Neptune at mid-Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker on a Quest. Their last Great Conjunction/s--three times through 1993--marks the furthering of the New World Order which makes Uranus and Neptune the significators of the one-world-government vision of the Illuminati.

Ebertin gives their combination of energies as "inner illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, idealism, an interest in spiritual subjects, religious problems, mysticism, the growth of subconscious powers or forces." 1993's three conjunctions occurred at or very near '18 Capricorn' = "POLITICAL POWER"...negative (unconscious/shadow side) expression: "smug or strong-armed paternalism"--a 2011 example would be the Occupy Wall Street protests as NYC police strong-arm peaceful demonstrators--our fellow Americans demanding that Wall Street fraudsters pay for their crimes.

Wonder whose side America's founders would be on if they only knew?

WikiLeaks "Destroyed"? and A Busy Week in Washington 9.5.11

9.5.11 A Busy Week Ahead in Washington DC, WikiLeaks in the News

by Jude Cowell

Yes, the US Congress returns to 'serve the public' this week (or, 'shaft the public' as many believe) and President Obama delivers an Address to a Joint Session of Congress on Thursday night (at 7:00 pm edt with his natal Chiron in Pisces rising opposite natal Pluto in Virgo setting.) His Address will include the White House's 'jobs creation plan' though it's hard to see what Mr. Obama can do about unemployment while signing more 'free' trade agreements, our US jobs killers.

Planning to be MIA from the president's Address Thursday will be Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh, known for his status as a deadbeat dad who instead devoted thousands of dollars to finance his congressional campaign. Mr. Walsh says he's made up his mind about Barack Obama and apparently no daylight will be allowed to change it.

Of course, some would say that Walsh isn't the only deadbeat on Capitol Hill and I guess I've made up my mind about Joe Walsh.

Plus, as you know, Wednesday evening (9.7.11) looms with Republican candidates squaring off in what passes these days for political 'debate'. I expect that Rick Perry will stand out, don't you? It's a crowded field with eight candidates scheduled to participate in the televised spectacle. Watch for Corporate GOPism to be on display.

WikiLeaks in the News

Meanwhile, Der Spiegel has published an article that details some of the recent events concerning WikiLeaks and the publishing of US State Department cables.

If you read the article you'll find it ends with a supposition that whistle blowers may no longer trust WikiLeaks--because Julian Assange has a bossy personality, because of his fights with a former employee, or because of the manner and condition in which Assange has chosen to publish leaks.

Now this leaves me with the impression that instilling a lack of trust in WikiLeaks for future whistle blowers was the primary objective of the article though you're certainly welcome to feel differently.

For another perspective--Assange in his own words--perhaps you'll wish to view last evening's 60 Minutes interview with a fascinating person set on a complicated, controversial mission.

Yet it's difficult for me, a believer in the Greater Good and the Rights of the Common Man, not to cheer when the power elite's frilly underpants are revealed in the unvarnished light of day. Yes, unredacted names are worrisome and Assange continues to assert that there's no evidence of anyone being harmed from having their names revealed in certain leaked documents and thereby ID'd as collaborating with the imperial powers (us, The Occupiers.)

So is Julian Assange "abusing his power"? Is it abusing power to expose abuse of power? Well, naturally the power elites, long accustomed to having all the secrecy they require, are in a snit of miffdom over such unsought, uncontrollable exposure of their deeds. A One World Government is their mission.

Astrologically, the asteroid known for an 'abuse of power' flavor is none other than Atlantis, one of America's pseudonyms, and a clear reference to the legendary Platonic myth of Isle of Atlantis which helped inspire Sir Francis Bacon's politically idealistic work "The New Atlantis", which describes the Utopia that America was allegedly meant to become.

You can read the Wiretap edition of The New Atlantis if you like but it's quite wordy. However, a Search feature is provided.

And check out a previous post on the natal horoscope of tech genius Julian Assange, a Jupiter-Neptune-Saturn fellow whose chart may contain hints of power abuse, or at least of a complex personality with lots going on beneath the surface of his Watery Sun Cancer-Moon Scorpio personality blend. Both signs are quite acquainted with the concepts of secrecy and revelations.

Yet perhaps more to the 'abuse of power' issue concerning Julian Assange is his willful, eccentric Sun/Uranus square, and if you know someone with this configuration you may agree that it gives an ego-intensifying effect.

Plus, here's a video from The Daily Show December 2010 with Jon Stewart's perspective on "catching a somewhat pasty predator".

Finally, FAIR blog has published a round-up of article links on the NYT and WikiLeaks Iraq cable debate if you care to wade in.
