Jan 6, 2017: 115th Congress Counts Election 2016's Electoral Votes as a New Session Begins

Big Picture in Focus: a New President, the 115th Congress, and Jupiter Leading the Throng

by Jude Cowell

Nov 5, 2017: If like me you've been clinging to hope that Election Day 2016 will soon end without causing major mayhem to our nation, perhaps you've had a moment to notice that Wikipedia has the low down on the 115th Congress which extends from January 3, 2017 to January 3, 2019. Electoral votes from Presidential Election 2016 are scheduled to be counted in Joint Session on January 6, 2017 which will hopefully settle the matter. VP Joe Biden acts as Senate President at least until January 20, 2017 at 12:00 pm est when a new White House occupant takes the Oath of Office.

Now since we're about to end 2016 and enter 'Happy New Year!' 2017 with a spiffy new Congress, perhaps you remember the 114th Congress and its cosmically auspicious beginning when an ongoing transit of Pluto opposed America's natal Sun (the president and the leadership of the country), a time of challenges, power struggles, contests of wills, and no-compromise attitudes. All this while Pluto and the January 2015 Sun in Capricorn hooked up and created potentials for displays of aggression, domination, self-interest, and ego-based demands.

And even though it's doubtful that President Obama's Republican opponents needed the synchronicity of a double Sun-Pluto condition (power cravers all!) to continue their sabotage of his presidency (and America with it), that's definitely the theme under which they labored while We the People marveled at how brazenly in-breach of the public contract so many of them were.

And of course, 14 Cancer is the position of the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, the Dog Star, aka, The Scorcher. Maybe you agree that Pluto's presence in mid-Capricorn (sign of government, law, business, and authority) has deepened and intensified events of 2015 and 2016 (ex: the insulting Campaign of 2016) so perhaps we should see if anything stellar is occurring over Capitol Hill on January 6, 2017 which will imprint upon political and societal matters during the upcoming congressional sessions and the first two years of a new president's term in office.

January 6, 2017: Well, obviously the Sun is in Capricorn so Pluto's manipulative influence continues but not as intensely (at 9:00 am est, Sun 16Cap26 and Pluto 17Cap08--both in the 12th house of Politics and Karma--chart set for the Capitol Building). The 'new world order' (global government) pair of planets, Uranus and Neptune, are near by Sun and Pluto by degree and in spirit since their 1993 conjunction/s occurred on or about 18 Capricorn, the POLITICAL POWER degree of 'smug or strong-armed paternalism' (Jones) which sounds more Trumpian than Clintonian, doesn't it? Unless you think Hillary is a manly woman, that is! ("You're a puppet, no you're a puppet!" - Stephen Colbert on Hillary's and Donald's debate).

Additionally, the overstayed-its-welcome Uranus-Pluto square is involved in something of a Thor's Hammer pattern if you don't mind counting the North Node (public contact; future direction) so we may as well consider the midpoint picture the trio forms: Uranus-Pluto = NN: accomplishing immense tasks through teamwork; sharing upsets or excitement with others (Ebertin). Along with this there's Sun and Pluto at apex of a T-Square between the Jupiter-Uranus opposition (which can become despotic) so we have a powerful amount of far-sightedness and a strong awareness of objectives involved as 2017 gets underway. Jupiter and Uranus also make up the rim of a BOWL shape with Jupiter leading all the other planets--probably alternating his roles as politician, banker, fund-raiser, professor, The General, the priest, the CEO, the actor, the promoter, and other societal roles he likes to play when it suits.

As for We the People, we'll be more than a little riled up with Moon in Mars-ruled Aries separating from rebellious Uranus, 5S42) in the 2nd house of Earning Ability, Possessions, and the National Treasury. Radical reformer Uranus opposes the 8th (corporate) house where Jupiter leads the merry cosmic throng in the cause-advocating BOWL pattern.

Now as you suspect, there are more chart factors of interest but I'm only listing the ones that pop out at me on first glance. We see from this chart and the events it times, that America is not out of her destructive Sun-Pluto phase of forced conquest, and the world remains in the grip of illuminating Uranus-Neptune and Uranus-Pluto with wealth-hoarding saboteur Pluto at apex of 1993's prominent conjunction degree which imprints 2017 and beyond as the 'Big Picture' demands a certain course of action which must be followed, very little option to do otherwise era (Tyl). Add to that the fact that when the revolutionary energies of Uranus and Pluto clash, we have: collapse of the old order, construction of the new (Ebertin) which for me echoes the far-sightedness and strong awareness of objectives mentioned, above, of a long-range plan for order out of (purposefully created) chaos.

The 2017 Eclipses begin in February and we'll cover those background influences later on. Meanwhile, we remain under the rays of the September 1, 2016 Solar Eclipse until February 2017 but paradoxically there is transit Neptune (10 Pisces) opposing the eclipse's realism and tackling the truth themes via confusion, illusion, fraud, lies, and deception which muddles things up for some, while others see things more clearly than ever before as Neptune's mirror reflects the degree area of 9 to 10 Virgo. And of course, astrological Neptune also represents the masses, mass delusion, and mass media, the largest propaganda spreader of all.

So with the Electoral Vote Count and a new Congress approaching, we may wonder about the day's Sun Cap-Moon Aries blend of energies, an Earth-Fire combo of 'scorched earth' tendencies that mimic Sirius 'The Scorcher'. This relates to more wildfires, drought, and to more political tactics in Washington by politicians and their backers who'd rather burn the place down than lose a jot of their earthly power and prestige. Actually, Sun Cap-Moon Aries is known for its tendencies toward overvaluing career success, insensitivity to the needs of others, and for an emphasis on crass materialism. Sounds like most pocket-lining politicians to me!

Update Nov 6, 2016: see PoliticusUSA's article that mentions the continuation of Republicans' 'scorched earth' policy toward a Clinton presidency.

And so, as New Year's Day 2017 approaches, yours truly is pre-wishing Joy and Good Fortune to everyone around the world--for the shrivel-hearted rich elites can take care of themselves and are completely insensible to how very very poor they really are.

A Discordant Message from Chief Nativist Donald Trump

In American Politics, Nativism is a pro-Anglo-Saxon, anti-immigration ideology in which the wages of 'less well paid natives' are believed to be lowered by immigrants who take jobs of our citizens by willingly working for much less pay. Jettison the inherent bigotry and resultant hatred of 'new comers' and such a point of view seems logical, right? It is, after all, a large part of what Globalism is all about.

Where I can't seem to find a shred of logic is in the nativism of 2016 candidate Donald Trump who bounces merrily along on a Republican bigotry ticket of nativism while espousing such rhetoric as American "wages are too high"! If you tout how immigrants lower the wages of American workers, why promise to lower working class wages if elected? Whaa-a-a?

Is Mr. Trump's unconscious,unfiltered Mercury-Neptune square once again blurting indiscreetly? Or did he simply mean that wages are already "too high" for a minimum wage increase so it's status quo (or lower) for wages during a Trump administration?

Either way, the bully candidate's nativism ploy is championed by power elites to persuade voters to vote Republican on November 8, 2016 - and that's millions of US voters who usually sit out elections for several reasons, not the least of which is the long-growing feeling (knowledge, actually) that our votes 'don't count' (assuming that at some earlier point in US history they did). US presidents are selected by elite committee, I've complained here for over a decade, and elsewhere online. And we can call them super delegates, the electoral college, what-evs...that lesser of two evils feeling never leaves us.

Did you notice when 2008 candidate Hillary Clinton was directed to be patient and stand down in favor of Barack Obama when the two candidates secretly attended the Chantilly, Virginia meeting in June 2008 of the Bilderberg Club? Is that why Bilderberg member VP Joe Biden has stated that Hillary will be elected in 2016--to fulfill a promise that 2016 is her turn to be president? If so, will this symbolize the reversal of America's Great Seal to the obverse side with the 'pyramid of power'?

Will women voters be the deciding factor in November 2016 as many political pundits are predicting?

For more on the Bilderberg Group, here's a link to The Guardian's 2001 interview with an original Bilderberger, Lord Healey.

Caller: VP Biden, Republicans ARE the Enemy! - clip (plus a grump)

A 'go along get along guy' is not the lackadaisical way that yours truly would describe VP Joe Biden's attitude as discussed in the following clip from the Thom Hartmann Show.

*Unforgivingly, I'd use terms involving the Big Picture 'Chess Game' played by imperialist global government operatives, a game or 'great plan' which is often referred to as a 'new world (economic) order' and total control grid being implemented by groups such as the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the supranational banking system, and other cabals, councils, and societies both secret and invisible which work toward a common goal. Any politician can afford to be graciously inclusive when he's part of the R vs D ruse, a convenient scam used to keep the American people divided and weakened since he (or she) was read in to the mission years ago and supports the Big Picture.

But of course, everyone likes Joe Biden so my fuss is only Capricorn me--a dissenting American who became *fed up years ago with what they've 'done with the place', the idealistic land we like to call the United States of America, the nation that infiltrators have worked so diligently for years to undermine and hollow out our government and Constitution, and collapse our society into complete chaos as a model for the entire world. This way the engineered global collapse will be total and all those left standing will plead for a 'new world order' to be installed to allegedly 'solve' the chaotic conditions that surround us. Joe Biden has been in politics for what--40 years? What has he done to stop America's decline? For example, did the 'war on drugs' stop it or boost it?

Yes, it's the Marxist Hegelian Dialectic being used against humanity to manipulate and force the Collective toward a predetermined outcome, aka, the Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis model. 1776 marked the beginning of a new world order which peaked with the Bretton Woods Agreement but now 'the powers that think they be' want a different global system that leaves behind what the power elite sees as the outdated concepts of democracy, freedom, independence, liberty, equality, and privacy. Outdated for the masses, that is.

Okay, I'll hush this grump for now amidst tonight's multiple media tributes to Just Joe Biden and immediately suggest a listen to Thom speaking with a caller to his show who makes a point that stood out to me as I listened to VP Biden's announcement of his non-run and which inspired my above grump:

Why Is The Media Trying So Hard To Corner Joe Biden Into Running? - video

For those who follow Campaign 2016 at all it's been impossible to ignore the constant media promotion of a presidential run by VP Joe Biden: will he or won't he? Will he declare his candidacy before the deadline? Is Joe emotionally up to it? Will he announce after Hillary testifies again on Benghazi (Oct 22)? And so on and so forth. Well, I've been wondering myself why the media won't hush up about a politician who could just as easily retire from a long career as jump into the background searching quagmire that is a US presidential race:


So one more time (arghh!) here's a link to a recent post which includes brief astro-notes concerning the personality of Vice President Joe Biden for those who may be curious. You'll want to scroll down a bit for Joe Info since the post includes a couple of other topics as well.

Senator (now VP) Joe Biden on Shalom TV: "I Am a Zionist" - clip

Found at last! For years the location of this 2-minute-39-second clip of an interview with VP Joe Biden concerning Zionism (he's one of them, he assures us), Iraq, and Israel eluded me. Here it is, uploaded in April 2007 by Shalom TV:

You know, these guys and gals (sometimes known as 'world leaders') are spending a huge amount of their time, effort, and taxpayer money (and pretend fiat money) trying to speedily fulfill Bible if the God of All Creation is in need of their arrogant, anti-societal meddling.

Actually there are several types of Zionism. And from August 2010, here's a post on Zionism and the Natal Chart of Israel. You may also wish to check out a few Astro-Notes on VP Joe Biden if you're daring.

Astro-Notes on VP Joe Biden with cameos by Cecil Rhodes, President Obama, and Rachel Maddow

Astro-Notes on Vice President Joe Biden: November 20, 1942 8:30 am EWT Scranton, Pennsylvania, Cecil Rhodes, and a Few More Things...

by Jude Cowell

"From memory" says the data source for the natal horoscope of VP Joe Biden and if we take his data as factual we find that VP Biden's natal Sun @27Sco34 conjoins the natal Midheaven (MC = Goals; Aspirations; Public Status) of President Barack Obama. How nifty for the pair of them, heads bent together in the White House, Biden a Council on Foreign Relations man, a group that began originally as The Round Table founded by British empiricist and "Diamond King" of South Africa, Cecil Rhodes.

Rabbit Holes of Power: Makes No Difference Who Plays the Role of US President

An overview of the entire Global Government scheme is available for the hardy to read so if that is you, please see Chapter 22, Cecil Rhodes and his Knights of the Round Table where the submerged role in the US government and the Obama White House of VP Joe Biden may be revealed to you in all its splendid subterfuge and ultimate Utopian distopianism (though some Democrats are said to prefer subtle persuasion and propaganda while Republicans go more for the brutal conquest-enforcement model of Global Governance; either way, chaos and subsequent rebuilding are on the purposefully engineered Plutonian political and financial agenda.) As you know, VP Biden is also a member of the Bilderberg Group of World Planners, not one of the more popular secret-cabal packs of so-and-sos and self-imagined 'overlords' using the Hegelian Dialect ruse upon the public where they create the chaos (Thesis), then 'save' us from it (Anti-Thesis) while merrily shredding the US Constitution as they go.

Now on this difficult topic there is another page I recommend if you dare titled, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Round Table Group. You probably know a bunch about the Rhodes Trust and Rhodes Scholarships that were established under Rhodes' will (1902) and administered by his pal, international banker Nathan Rothschild of the House of Rothschild, master manipulators of the Plutonian kind. Naturally, this firmly ties into the Great Scheme viathe British Empire and its central banking system with the US banking system ('the Fed') along with top scholars who get to study at the University at Oxford.

Why, even my political 'splainer-in-chief of complex topics, the very intelligent (Rockerfellerite) MSNBC news host Rachel Maddow is a former Rhodes Scholar. Tap the BuzzFeed link, then scroll down a bit if you wish to see a photo (#13, no less) of her tossing the sign of the goat, Satan's sign, at you. Wish she hadn't let herself be photographed doing that.

So if you're unfamiliar with the centuries-old 'Great Plan' for a New Millennium 'new world order' to replace the then-new order begun with the founding of America in 1776, why not try a previous post Astro-Notes and Famous Quotes on the New World Order and see if it fits what you see going on around you in 2015? Okay, the post may be a dud but you won't know if you don't try it and please Re-tweet any of my articles for I've spent quite a few years at this freebie blogging thing and an occasional Re-tweet would be mighty nice of you! @judecowell

Arghh! Once More the MSM Touts the Will Biden Run for President? Memo

Now let's step off the 'new world order' ledge long enough to take a detached peek at the Water-Earth Sun Scorpio-Moon Taurus personality blend of Joe Biden and see if its potentials ring true based on the public persona that VP Biden has projected during these many years of political activity. If not, his Moon @00Tau59 may denote an earlier birth time with an "I AM the people" natal Moon in late Aries, ruled by activist Mars and denoting a workaholic crusader with a mission temperament when paired with the secretive, mystery-loving, hidden control, big business sign of Scorpio with its forceful Mars-Pluto vibes.

Sun Scorpio-Moon Taurus describes one who is drawn to the joys of life and to death matters and has an interest in the corruption of innocence, and as a US senator, he is known for sponsoring the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) with broad support in Congress. This blend contains the typical practical-and-supportive vibes of a Water-Earth combination though it may have a chauvinistic streak. Talents include a natural understanding of financial and economic realities, along with full dedication to loved ones.

Although stubbornness and a total blindness to the motivations of others may be noted, this blend's pragmatic wisdom is extremely valuable and may be noticed in its supportive role of a Vice President who may be something of a power-behind-the-throne actor in a similar mold as Dick Cheney to George W. was purported by pundits to be.

With Biden's Sun Scorpio-Moon Taurus blend, we find intense idealism which resonates with his CFR and Bilderberg leanings, plus, I heard him say to Bill Maher a few years ago that he's a Zionist though the clip seems to have disappeared (see video, below.) An ability to be a reliable touchstone for his friends is evident and it seems clear that President Obama leans on the rock that is VP Biden, a man who is, I believe, one of Mr. Obama's mentors as required by the president's natal 1st house Chiron in mystical Pisces. (Remember that the president experienced his 3-fer Chiron Return while in the White House.) Mr. Obama's natal Chiron opposes his 7th house Pluto (6 Virgo) denoting his ability to express such Pluto-Chiron themes of oppression and exploitation within the mass consciousness as he plays the White House mouthpiece, we might say, which is a primary role of the US presidency.

So! I just noticed while typing how easy it is to get off the topic of Joe Biden and onto other political actors! Well, maybe it's time to consider the Scorpio-Taurus Images for Integration provided so helpfully by Charles and Suzi Harvey in their book Sun Sign-Moon Sign which is a visual method for sussing out the integration of one's Solar conscious mind with the Lunar unconscious which results in a whole and fully functioning personality:

"A successful businessman probes the mysteries of life...A celebrated surgeon amasses a fortune...Pluto takes Persephone into the Underworld."

Of course I know that you, dear reader, can freely associate these images with what you know of the life of VP Joe Biden--one such being that he underwent two brain surgeries in 1988 and wasn't given very good odds of being 'normal'. And this isn't counting his son Beau's recent and tragic death from a brain tumor at age 46.

Now on a Global Politics level, let's close today's astro-notes with a clip of Joe Biden avowing himself to be a Zionist which makes him part of the political movement called Zionism (which is not the same as Judaism):

Natal data for Barack Obama: August 4, 1961 7:24 pm AHST Honolulu, Hawaii; BC/BR online.

Feb 7, 2012

Feb 7, 2012: a Full Leo Moon for President Obama

February 7, 2012: Full Moon 18Leo32 4:54 pm est White House

Full Moons bring up for our consideration issues of relationships, full awareness, and perhaps a fulfilment or an ending in some domain of life; they are the culmination of something begun at the last New Moon, the seed stage of a monthly process, two weeks prior.

Today the Sun 18AQ32 conjoins Mercury 18:56 upon the natal Ascendant of President Barack Obama which indicates a day or so when the president's personality shines and his goals may be favorably spotlighted.

But that isn't all concerning this afternoon's Full Moon in Leo for it reflects the same degree of the eclipse forecasted by doctor, seer, and astrologer, Nostradamus. But let's let sleeping lemurs lie for now and focus on the Leo/AQ axis of Will emphasized this afternoon which includes all the facets of Sun-ruled Leo (proud; regal; a leader; creative; egotistical; Divine Child) and Aquarius, ruled by Saturn with genius Uranus as its higher octave influence.

Aquarius: the humanitarian, philanthropist, intellectual, professor, technician, and, perhaps above all, scientist--describe the usual suspects in the archetypal realms of our dualistic world for the celestial sign of the Water Bearer.

Yes, everyone loves a Full Moon! Well, almost everyone since sneaky stuff by the crooked might better remain undiscovered if perpetrated on or near a New Moon, a 3 or 4 day period when nights are darker.

Barack Obama August 4, 1961 7:24 pm AHST Honolulu, Hawaii: Sun 12Leo/Moon 3Gem.

Also, today's Full Moon may be significant for the president on the action-energy-motivation level since Mr. Obama is smack dab in the midst of his Mars Return 2012 (22Vir35: Jan 14, Feb 1, June 18), the Full Moon horoscope shows transiting Mars 21Vir40 Rx conjoining a somewhat difficult star, Denebola (to go against society; against the mainstream )--and this extended Mars Rx period is crossing and re-crossing the Midheaven (Goal; Career; Public Status) of VP Joe Biden.

We've sees one example of the Denebolan quirkiness of May-I-Call-You-Joe in his oft-reputed train rides home each evening from Washington DC all the years he served in the Senate.

Yet as long as President Obama labors underneath squares from transiting Saturn to his natal Jupiter/Saturn conjunction (opposite natal Mercury 2Leo), Saturnian blockages and obstacles to all his ideas and plans will continue to be placed in his way with constant delays and restrictions along his path; his authority and executive powers are being challenged by opponents of the neocon/neo-liberal persuasion.

Glad Mr. Obama decided to get over his SuperPAC scruples since foreign and domestic corporatists and other billionaires and monarchists will be purchasing the White House more brazenly than ever before if We The People don't come out in droves and VOTE Democratic on November 6, 2012. The Supreme Court is already out of control, let's not add to their corporatist number by voting GOP.

(Independent here, but really, we have no better choice than wimpy and not-so-wimpy Democrats.)

But enough of Politics, that 'organized system of hatreds'...there's a just-past Full Moon tonight which will still be gorgeous over head and the morning hours here in Northeast Georgia were very foggy and chilly today so a silvery plethora of moon beams would be most appreciated this evening!

Now I ask you: Who better to inspire us over the lovely Full Leo Moon of February 7, 2012 than Auntie Moon herself?

Debt Ceiling Deadline Aug 2 2011: Jupiter-Neptune active

Fighting War on China's Dime: the August 2, 2011 Debt Ceiling Squeeze

by Jude Cowell

Well, the speculator pair, Jupiter and Neptune, are activated by midpoint on August 2, 2011 which is the Obama-Geithner promoted deadline for raising the US debt ceiling or else America defaults and the globalists have the world financial collapse they've long planned for - have engineered and guided along, in fact.

Let's hope those who scr*w the world find themselves royally scr*wed before a total collapse affects the innocent even more than power elite thievery has already done.

On June 9, 2011, a headline on Huffington Post concerns the chairing of debt ceiling negotiations by VP Joe Biden, a chair choice that almost amuses me for its aptness: may-I-call-you-Joe is from the beautiful state of Delaware where so many credit banks have traditionally spawned, cavorted, and overcharged us with draconian fees and robbed us by falsehood and usury interest rates.

Anyway, what about the Jupiter-Neptune speculation duo of combined energies which also indicates wastrels, spendthrifts, and those with bubbly plans and imaginings beyond all reason and practicality?

Here's their midpoint picture sitting directly upon erratic, radical Uranus 4Ari20 Rx in 12th H of Karma, Self-Undoing, Secret Deals, and Politics. Because of our financial topic and the pair's connection to wasted money and inflationary bubbles, I believe the Jupiter-Neptune-Uranus trio wields a direct influence which is stamped upon the August 2, 2011 deadline and the debt ceiling question. One question: shouldn't it be called raising our 'credit ceiling' since more credit is the alleged solution - and we know it's long been the problem?

(Any, all, or none may apply; sources: Munkasey and Ebertin; remarks in parentheses are added by yours truly.)

Jupiter/Neptune = Uranus:

Disruptions by events having no real explanation (unless the mysterious explanation is a global financial collapse plan that no one in Washington honestly talks about because most of them are completely enthralled - and culpable - in the big ruse); basing decisions on odd or unusual theories about the effects of the supernatural (our Masonic Washington: is the Masons' Grand Plan for America on the verge of being fulfilled?); unaccustomed confusion; experiencing the contrast between imagination (fraud and lies, political theater) and reality; the stage of coming down to earth with a bump (no more credit extension for you? default?); sudden recognition of a difficult situation (now? or perhaps it's the American people en masse realizing that our political brigands have sold us out even more than we previously suspected; or, perhaps the Tea Party rank and file will wake up to their own corporate zombiism. That could be helpful.)

Making matters more complex, there is a second midpoint of zealous Mars/Pluto, with Mars out-of-bounds - up to his own activities - at a critical-crisis degree: 29Gem51 in 2nd H) which spotlights the same degree as bubbly, over promising Jupiter/Neptune, so we have:

Mars/Pluto = Uranus: using whatever power or means available to reform, disrupt, stir-up, or otherwise alter conditions (mm-hmm); brutality; violence; cruelty; sudden catastrophes.

The Mars/Pluto combo also relates to military troops, powerful weapons, and the Pentagon, that bottomless money pit bleeding us dry these too-many years. And you know the Pentagon must think it's too big to fail. It isn't, and will have only itself to blame. Wonder how long the neocons think the financial craziness can go on?

Yet I have a difficult time thinking this wasn't all done on purpose on behalf of an over-arching plan in which we-the-people are un-included. We are usurped.

More on August 2, 2011 11:59 pm Washington DC

ASC 8Tau20 with rising Jupiter 9Tau09 in the Earth (practical) sign of Taurus and Taurus does love its comforts and luxuries, and tends toward greed, possessiveness, and intolerance; here it may describe the builder and architect. Neptune is happily floating in the seas of Pisces (00:03 Rx) yet soon will re-enter scientific Aquarius; wounded Chiron 4Pis08 Rx continues nearby reminding us of the water damages our nation and other regions of the world have sadly sustained.

(Water water everywhere but very little clean water to drink anywhere. Or, it's contaminated with radiation, fluoride, mercury, hormone disruptors, or __?__.)

Chart-ruler Venus 6Leo50 conjoins Sun 10Leo30, a pair indicating self-satisfaction, even pompousness, and wanting to be liked - they conjoin the Republican Party's natal Leonine Mercury, planet of negotiations, agreements, deals, trade and commerce; Mercury 1Vir12 is retrograde, so hopefully a deal may be reached before August 2nd especially since Mercury turns Rx only 9 minutes earlier (August 2, 2011) at 11:50 pm edt.

Therefore, deals and negotiations committed to based on the August 2nd deadline may soon reverse, be delayed, or be up for major review before things settle down and move forward. Earlier would be better.

Stationary (strengthened) Mercury here rules 2nd H of Earnings and Values and US natal Uranus 8Gem55 sits upon its cusp, along with transiting MIDAS and Pan (a trickster element whose name is the basis for words such as 'panic' and 'panacea' - raising the debt ceiling would be a panacea and not doing so would cause a panic.

Mercury also rules the 6th H where the Moon (we-the-people; the public) 26Vir18 reflects the several months of US Secondary Progressed Moon's visit to US natal Neptune 23Vir and Sec Neptune 26Vir. This is part of our ongoing water catastrophes and fraud-to-the-people scenarios along with the debilitating transit of fraudulent, deceptive Neptune to US n Moon: home foreclosures, thefts, refugees, exiles, a sense of inferiority, and feeling rootless.

My guess is that a majority of the public wants war occupations and bombings overseas to cease since We Cannot Afford Them with this 6th H Moon in serving Virgo, and US troops being brought home is alleged to be on the president's calendar for Summer 2011; fluctuations in the health care debate may also be shown though usually staid Saturn in 6th H is busy blowing soap bubbles (its Sabian Symbol for '13Libra'.)

Another interesting factor in the chart is a Mystic Rectangle (practical mysticism) pattern between Pluto and Chiron (sextile; this is the plutocracy duo of oppression and corporatism) trining a Mercury-Mars sextile (60 degrees). Their sextile indicates a challenge to consider alternative options before acting; the need to be 'right' be must avoided (on Capitol Hill?!), and articulating grievances clearly is a talent. (The Sextile, Alan Epstein.)

If Not Now, Then When? US Mars Return 2011

If the pressure from China and others speeds up the process, or more important political considerations turn up, perhaps an agreement to raise the debt ceiling may be reached around the time of the US Mars Return (a new cycle of activity begins every two years) which occurs on July 21, 2011 with Mars semi square Jupiter 7Tau52 in 8th H.

US natal Mars 21Gem23 is in 9th house of the Return chart set for DC, and North Node (in the August 2nd chart and in US Mars Return chart) at '23Sag' has an "Immigrants Entering a New Country" vibe. Return Mars in 9th H denotes martian activities such as war in Foreign Lands (9th H), and this Return chart shows US natal Mars conjoining the transiting South Node, a separative point; Mars/SN is a marker for war, violence, and other disruptive conditions. Our past (SN) actions (Mars) are dogging us and yes, will probably be repeated.

(You'd think that our dire financial condition would stop the warring - raising the debt ceiling seems to be about grabbing more fake, inflated money to wage more war and build bombs. It's certainly not an increase of funds for the benefit of the American people, as their 'austerity measures' have made clear. Some would call this treason.)

Mars makes no other aspects in the July 21, 2011 Return chart; the applying semi square with Jupiter indicates minor irritations to be worked out.

Now back to August 2, 2011 and chart-ruler Venus, planet of relationships, attractions, evaluations, and valuable things. Venus is oriental (last to rise before the Sun) so dealing with things of value is on her work schedule. Any applying aspects tell how things will proceed.

From 4th H of Real Estate and Domestic Scene, Venus applies (2A20) only to a square with moneybags Jupiter (who may act as banker, judge, general, guru, hierophant, preacher, teacher, attorney, Republican, etc; Jupiter here rules the 8th cusp, the house that describes our topics of debt and credit); this frustrating aspect of blockage between two money planets denotes indulgence and being neglectful of one's duties and responsibilities; if there's generosity, it satisfies ulterior motives, and the offer to make adjustments is but an empty gesture.

Perhaps fickle Venus doesn't think she has to do anything she doesn't 'want' to do being conjunct the Sun and all. But does she hold all the cards on August 2nd? Perhaps not...

For in 6th H (Work, Health, Military and Police Service) is manager Saturn (also a stand-in for the Dems) now moving direct and approaching a rendezvous with US natal Saturn 14Lib48 on August 28, 2011 (#3 of 3), a time when US chickens will come home to roost if they haven't by August 2nd.

The August 2nd Saturn provides opportunity (sextile; 2A00) for the leader (Sun) in dramatic Leo, sign of the natural leader (and monarchy) in the house of Real Estate. Will something surface or improve concerning Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? It's difficult to imagine Real Estate in general suddenly improving before the end of 2011, isn't it?

Still, the Sun shines on the Homeland in this chart (4th H) with lucky Venus there, too, both in happy Leo, and our topic is the debt ceiling and its effects on the US economy and our hesitant off-again-on-again recovery which will subsequently impact the rest of the world.

Well, there's a quick overview of a date we're being inundated with in the news: August 2, 2011. Apparently they want it infused within the public consciousness and imagination along with the ongoing propaganda of failure they're serving 24/7 - morning, noon, and night.

Hey! Did you notice that this post contained nary a phrase about the GOP crashing the US economy so that President Obama would fail? As if I'd ever consider voting for them after watching them spend mega-bucks for 8 years under Bush-Cheney only to crash America and blame the Democrats for their handiwork - puh!

Well, I didn't think any of us looked that stupid, but of course I could be wrong...

House Debt Ceiling Vote: Saturn/NN Rising 5.31.11

Astro-Notes: US House's Debt Ceiling Vote 6:30 pm edt May 31, 2011

by Jude Cowell

With C-SPAN reporting this morning that the House is expecting to vote to raise America's debt ceiling at 6:30 pm edt this evening, the horoscope set for the Capitol Building at that moment shows the Saturn/NN (North Node of the Moon) sitting upon the Ascendant, the WHAT? Point of any chart.

ASC 17Sco39; MC 27Leo22: 6:30 pm edt falls within a Mercury Hour, perfect for voting, negotiations, oration, commerce, trade, and transport issues. This is a 'clean' vote with no spending cuts and is not expected to pass the House which requires a 2/3 majority; all Republican and some number of Democrats are said to be part of this evening's Just Say No mummery. Political points will be made.

In Politics and Business, Saturn/NN = 'help from others in times of internal difficulties, including foreign enterprises; a country in inner turmoil which does not know how to use organizations for aid; trying to do things internally without outside aid; building authority; long-standing ties to old friends'. (Munkasey.)

Saturn/NN also indicates serious (Saturn) meetings (NN) with Saturn the significator of the Democratic Party, and of managers and legal workers, or simply workers. US Saturn (14Lib48) is ongoing with the third of three 'hits' occurring on August 28, 2011; here, Saturn 10Lib34 Rx continues its isolated stance from the 11th H of Groups and Associations. However, Saturn is on its Direct Station degree.

The Saturn/Uranus = Pluto T-Square remains to plague us with its brutal conditions;Venus 19Tau27 is the final dispositor and now separates from conjunction with activist, warring Mars 15Tau27 (the Oxen Point) with Mars dropping below the Descendant of Partnership and Open Enemies into the 6th H of the Military.

From Munkasey and Ebertin, here is the midpoint picture formed at 6:30 pm edt on Capitol Hill; any, all, or none may apply, yet all seem applicable:

Saturn/NN = ASC: important life-altering events; discussion (voting) on the wisdom of continuing or supporting an effort; events which cause suffering, loss, or pain; a scarcity of help in depressing times; shared suffering; inhibited development.

One hopes the 'wisdom of continuing or supporting an effort' isn't America herself.

The 8th cusp 17Gem25 is at the degree of the June 2004 Venus Transit ('18Gem' = "Two Chinese Men Talking Chinese in a Western Crowd") with a Venus Transit indicating new and unusual alliances being formed, alliances that are unexpected or unsuspected. The rare Transit occurred at sunrise (Sea Island, GA) during G-8 Summit 2004. You'll note that China is not on the (public) attendance list of nations.

With banker, religious leader, and general Jupiter at a critical-crisis degree (29Ari15 in the 6th house of Military and Police Service, Work, and Health, we might expect that war costs should be discussed yet this, as noted, is a 'clean' vote with spending cuts attached...the reason it is certain to fail as the GOP-Tea Party continues holding America's public standing hostage with the threat of the US becoming a debt deadbeat nation if the credit ceiling isn't raised a couple of trillion dollars.

Another crisis-ridden 29th degree is seen: the Moon (we-the-people, but also publicity and daily matters) @ 29Taur15 in 7th H with Venus, Mercury, and Sun. This vote is set to be taken during the Balsamic phase of the Moon, a dark period when sneakiness lurks about. Transiting Midas, the gold-hoarder, sits between Sun 10Gem08 and the crisis Moon.

Obviously the Sun is just before reaching 11Gem02 on June 1, 2011, when a Solar Eclipse will occur (in 8th H with the chart set for Washington DC; click to view horoscope with the vote's debt ceiling Moon 29Tau conjunct the eclipse's 8th cusp of Debt, Credit, Insurance, Other People's Money...and Transformation.)

IC (End of the Matter; The Drain) 27AQ22 has the US natal Moon (Sibly chart) upon it. Gotta motor into the city so my blogging time has ended so I'll end with the descriptive Sabian Symbol for '28AQ', then the Images for Integration for this evening's Sun Gemini-Moon Taurus...

"A Tree Felled and Sawed."

Yes, the US Congress, Wall Street, the global banking syndicate, monarchists and secret societies, the White House, and SCOTUS have managed to fell the American people en masse. We are now being sawed into pieces with this Moon conjunct Fixed Star Alcyone, keywords: something to cry about.

One of the Images seem to describe President Obama's wheeler-dealer-in-chief, VP Joe Biden (Trilateralist, CFRer, and professed Zionist), who says he goes home by train from Washington to Delaware each night:

"The can-can from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld...A master chef gives a dinner party for her intellectual friends...A country boy lives it up among the city bustle but goes back to the farm at night." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Yes we can-can?

Egypt's progressed chart Jan 2011: YOD pattern of Crisis

Week-Long Riots Worsen in Egypt; YOD of Crisis shown in Progressions

by Jude Cowell

Well, VP Joe Biden wouldn't call Egypt's President Mubarak "a dictator" but many people would. Especially those who've been forced to live under the Mubarak regime for 30 years.

Free Speech TV's Thom Hartmann is reporting that today has brought more violence to the country than before as the "US hedges." But Hillary Clinton has called the Mubaraks "friends of the family"! (Perhaps she means, crime family?)

Yes, it's quite a dilemma for the US with Mubarak 'a partner with the US for decades' even as the needs and rights of the Egyptian people are ignored by the regime when they're not being stamped out altogether - as usual, it's America the so-called freedom-lover backing and propping up the wrong horse of oppression rather than supporting a people yearning to be free and decently treated.

As we see here in the US as well, corporate interests prevail, and transiting Jupiter, planet of expansion and increase, re-stimulates the Aries Point (00Ari00), one of the World Points of Manifestation.

Well, it's been a busy week here in my real world with little time to blog though I've been following the riots and protests in Tunisia and in Egypt. I have no natal chart for Tunisia but for Egypt there's the Proclamation of Independence for Egypt which the Sultan issued one day after the British Parliament declared Egypt to be a sovereign nation, aka The Kingdom of Egypt. This chart I've labelled simply 'Egypt' (shown below, lower left.)

Also shown below is a second chart representing the independence declaration by President Nassar for the Republic of Egypt, labelled here 'Republic of Egypt' (upper right) with a telling midpoint picture for those looking astrologically for indications of strong-armed control and hardship for the Egyptian people: Saturn/Pluto = Moon (the people): strong control; renunciation; giving up giving.

Saturn/Pluto in Politics indicates: use of secret police or military agencies, keeping affairs private, turmoil in rigid or older structures, secret preparations for future restrictions, and hoarding of resources. (Munkasey.)

(All midpoint pictures on this blog are from Ebertin, Munkasey, and/or Tyl; any, all, or none may apply and are subject to transits and progressions.)

Now I won't expand much here about the two natal charts for hopefully you can read a few notes scribbled upon them if you click to enlarge the dual-chart image. Outside both charts, I've penned some of the US natal planets such as US natal Uranus (freedom; independence; disruption) rising to the degree in the 1922 chart. And I shall mention that the 1922 chart's Pre-Natal Eclipse (PE) Series 14 North repeats on November 25, 2011 @2Sag37 with its influences of:

'A most peculiar family of eclipses; an acute time of confusion in relationships, unexpected happenings in financial matters, and possible illness; a peculiar turn of events; no important decisions should be made concerning incoming events since there's too much confusion and delusion in the environment to make clear judgments.' (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Sounds as if the end of 2011 will be a crazy time all around. (A post on the Nov 2011 eclipse for America is in the planning stages and I hope to have it published fairly soon.) Plus, 2011 brings Egypt further triggering by Solar Eclipse in the 1922 natal chart: the June 1, 2011 eclipse touches natal ASC and Mars, and the Solar Eclipse of July 1, 2011 affects Egypt's natal Pluto 7Can57 Rx in 2nd house (Earning Ability, Values) - and US planets in Cancer.

Admittedly, the natal Mars/Uranus opposition between Egypt and the US is worrisome to this reluctant astrologer, plus, Egypt's Mars 11Sag37 conjoins US natal ASC and is the degree of the last (and current) Great Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron, the plutocracy duo of disenfranchisement, primal violence, fascism, and corporatism. '12Sag' = "A Flag Turns into an Eagle That Crows." (MEJ.)

With its PE (14N) as a background influence, the state of emergency in Egypt may crescendo just prior to the November eclipse or soon after though good decisions are unlikely to be made then. Yet the Egyptian people are fed up now and want a new government! Apparently it's only folk like Joe Biden who pretend to fault them for having such a natural urge for basic human rights. Methinks that even Joe B would feel the same if Mubarak ruled his life and future.

From historical record, here are the two natal charts for modern Egypt since ancient Egypt's beginnings are shrouded in the mists of Time:

Lower left: March 15, 1922 10:00 am EET Cairo, Egypt; ASC 8Gem27 with Atlantis (the New World = America) rising; Hour Jupiter; asteroid Hermes, the Magician, at Mc; unaspected Sun (the leader) can 'run away with the chart' (and the country's riches); manipulative Pluto 7Can57 Rx in 2nd house lies amongst US natal planets in Cancer: Venus, Jupiter, and Sun); Mars 11Sag37 rises with Antares (obsessed with success), a violent star; US natal Pluto in Capricorn is in 9th house of Foreign Lands and Philosophy.

There are no Earth placements in the 1922 chart suggesting a lack of practicality to the whole endeavor as manipulated by Britain and America. You may wish to read about Ahmed Fuad morphing from Sultan to King in 1922. This chart may also be called the 'Kingdom of Egypt' natal horoscope.

Upper right: June 18, 1953 11:30 pm EET Cairo, Egypt; Hour Venus; Mercury 20Can51 is out-of-bounds and conjoins Fixed Star Castor (murder; loss) at a critical degree (20 Can); Mars is also OOBs 3Can10 conjunct US natal Venus; Egypt's Jupiter/Pluto midpoint conjoins the Pentagon's natal ASC = desire for power; with 16Pis21 rising, Jupiter and Neptune, the speculator pair, rule the chart, and Jupiter 9Gem23 conjoins US natal Uranus and Fixed Star Aldebaran (success through integrity); the PE of this chart (25AQ03 in 12th house) is the 9 New North, a violent, injurious Series. 9NN last occurred in March 2007 so it won't repeat until 2025.

Sleuthily, my astro-search for the crisis/revolutionary situation going on this week in Egypt resulted in the following Secondary Progressed chart based on the 1922 natal hroscope which shows a crisis-ridden YOD pattern (Finger of God) pointing toward the at-rope's-end Egyptian people:

Sun/ASC = Moon 21Cap18: fruitful activity with others; receptivity; open to cosmic forces. (Though all internet services have been shut off by the regime.)

Yes, the midpoint picture sounds rather mild but the YOD pattern (crossroads; turning point; a special task) with apex Moon is descriptive of the critical and dire conditions for the people of Egypt, January 2011 and beyond.

Possibilities for a YOD with an apex Moon: emotional maladjustment, instinctual responses to factors in the environment are out-of-tune (with the Mubarak regime certainly); past emotional traumas; triggers to act in self-defeating ways.

(Now I totally agree with Barack Obama on this: violence is not the answer. Which is why the Mubarak government should have listened to the people's grievances long before this.)

Once activated (this week!), this apex Moon (in Cap, the sign of government, law, and business) embarks on a destined change of life patterning in order to free the populace from negative images of the past. After years of inner preparation, a *new path may open up which permits basic needs to be attended to, defense of the weak to be championed, and fundamental security needs to be addressed. (Tierney.)

An interesting synchronicity is that an apex Moon in a YOD configuration is found in the natal chart of none other than Thomas Jefferson, author of our own Declaration of Independence.

And since the young people have begun this youth-led uprising bwo of Facebook and Twitter, we note the crisis-degreed planet of youth, Mercury 29Gem31 Rx in 11th house of Hopes, Wishes (new government now!), Groups and Associations (including social networking.) This Sec Mercury was triggered and eclipsed on December 21, 2010 by a heavy-weighted Lunar Eclipse @29Gem21. Click and enlarge the chart and you'll note that dissolving, disilluioned Neptune 13Leo36 Rx in the 1922 chart (and planet of the masses and of media) is precisely at Midheaven 13Leo36 in the Lunar Eclipse chart set for Washington DC.

Now you may be tempted to think that this little Leo synchronicity doesn't mean anything unless, like me, you remember the esoteric triumverant of power between Washington DC, London - and Cairo...since America's founding.

And you may wish to review President Obama's much-touted speech delivered in Cairo in 2009. In light of current events, its apt title is: *A New Beginning (video, plus a link to the transcript.)

Image: Egypt's 1922 chart progressed to Jan 26, 2011 noon in Cairo; Hour of the Sun 20Gem26 conjunct US natal Mars; Moon 21Cap18 inconjunct Sun (adjustments necessary between leadership and populace); Sun '21Gem' = "A Labor Demonstration"; Moon '22Cap' = "A General Accepting Defeat Gracefully."

With this post, published on behalf of the good people of Egypt, this populist blogger's gut feelings can't help but say, May the Mubarak regime accept defeat gracefully - and sooner rather than later!

Bill Maher on Christine O'Donnell's win

By now you've heard that Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell won big in yesterday's Republican primary in Delaware with the eventual plum in the pie being VP Joe Biden's old Senate seat.

Click to watch Mr. Maher on CNN with Larry King last evening; text of the comedian's remarks are included. He says he knows O'Donnell personally and likes her (she's a nice person) but adds his usual maverick spin to the analysis!

Personally I like anyone or anything that ruffles Karl Rove's feathers or knots his jammies in a bunch and he predicted O'Donnell's loss. Oops! Seems the rules of the Republican game have changed, old horse. Perhaps it's time for ya to mosey to the barn.

A quote of note on Special Interests, from VP Joe Biden

"Special interests know that all their lies about reform will be proven false. But that won't stop them from inventing new ones and spreading attack ads."

Is Al Franken grumpy 'bout the New World Order?

No, Mr. Franken may not be - especially since The Hill reports that VP Joe Biden has met with Al Franken and all but swore him into the Senate. I assume Franken must agree to follow the agenda.

For when our Trilateralist and *Council-on-Foreign-Relations-membered VP refers to 'building a new economy for the 21st century' my ears hear doublespeak for 'New World (Economic) Order', aka the one-world-government we're being herded toward, low moos optional.

As David Rockefeller said in his 1991 speech to the Trilateral Commission (my italics):

"But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."

Speaking directly from the sophisticated bowels of the unwashed masses:

No. Actually it isn't preferable to be governed by the most arrogant, greedy, cynical, and fascist-styled meathead larvae ever hatched under satan's wing.

Well after that, I can't think of anything else to say.

Except that I wish all the know-it-all power-mad freaks would go live on a desert island far far away, boss each other into oblivion, and leave decent people alone. Now. I'm grumpy but basically I'm done.

Given the manufactured 'financial collapse' we're being traumatized by since at least 2008, how do you like Rockefeller's world bankers mention?
