October 2023 Solar Eclipse sweeps from Oregon to Texas

Handily, the Great American Eclipse website has all the astronomical information you might want concerning the annular Solar Eclipse of October 14, 2023 with its path of annularity sweeping from Oregon beginning at 9:13 am pdt and ending in Texas at 12:03 pm cdt - near the US-Mexico border. Central and South America will then be visited as well. Follow the link for a visual of the 2023 Eclipse path crossing with the upcoming Total Solar Eclipse of April 8, 2024, which, as you know, is the third of three Great American Eclipses.

On the astrological and political sides, mentions of the October 14, 2023 Solar Eclipse in the 7 South Saros Series may be found for the curious. One way to find such topics is to scroll down a bit and type "7 South" into the SO'W sidebar Search field for a sampling of posts to select from.

Meanwhile, here's a previously published set of horoscopes of the October 14, 2023 7 South Eclipse set for Washington DC along with the horoscope of a certain despot's Secondary Progressed New Moon (SP Moon makes an excellent timing device) for the real time event and the symbolic event will meet in October at the same degree in Libra, sign of The Scales of Justice:

Additionally, below is an excerpt from an October 2022 post in which we looked ahead to the 7 South manifestation of October 14, 2023 while noting that the creation of Stars Over Washington occurred on October 16, 2005 under the auspices of the 7 South Eclipse of October 3, 2005.

{And yes} the October 2005 manifestation of a 7 South Solar Eclipse is the Prenatal Solar Eclipse that inspired Stars Over Washington, meaning that under its themes, yours truly felt compelled to create the 'personal weblog' you're reading right now - because of my anger against "what politicians were doing to the place," aka, America (exs: preemptive war; "Homeland" Security; The "Patriot" Act). And so I can tell you, dear reader, that 7 South themes contain a deeper meaning for me now than in 2005. How could they not?

7 South Themes: "Immense power, anger, and force" of the intial 7 South's "Mars square Pluto is channeled into this family of eclipses" (via the Mars-Pluto square of June 22, 1248). {}"Huge obstacles will suddenly and easily clear or, on the negative side, a pending potential crisis will suddenly manifest and move through very rapidly; either way, things will seem to move at great speed" (paraphrasing B. Brady).

Now as you may or may not know, Mars-Pluto square energies are formidable and on a mundane (political) level suggest power struggles, jealousy, destructive anger, and the urge to take revenge. Well, we know who in the political realm this sounds like so his name shall not be mentioned in this post, not this time.

So in closing, mention should be made of the next manifestation of a 7 South Solar Eclipse for it is soon-coming and occurs @21Lib07:33 on October 14, 2023. It isn't a Total eclipse, only Annular so its potency will be somewhat muted, thankfully, since all 7 South eclipses carry the forcefulness of a Mars-Pluto square within them. However, the eclipse in October 2023 will fall between the planetary pair of strong political opinions, Mercury and Mars - and Jupiter @13Taurus during the eclipse conjuncts the North Node of destiny in the SR 2022 Horoscope...which suggests religious groups interfering in legal processes, and closed legal societies (M. Munkasey).

So perhaps we can agree that these potentials are already underway with America's tradition of separation of church and state underfire by bossy theocrats, ideologues, and mafia-esque criminal types determined to take total control of our country. Therefore, we must out-determine them and use the Mars-Pluto energies ourselves toward positive outcomes!

Eclipses: 'Wild Cards' of the Universe and Cosmic Blinks From Above

Well, there it is for your consideration, folks, two significant solar eclipses coming soon to a Cosmos near us all, and full of unpredictable possibilities for disruptive changes of course. We should add that the Mars-Pluto duo also relates to war and to people disabled in war (R. Ebertin) which suggests the US military and possible events involving the ongoing war in Ukraine, but hopefully to no other conflagrations.

Dec 12, 2019 UK Elections: Astrology and Tarot agree!

December 11, 2019: This morning while sitting here in Raleigh, North Carolina (a former British colony), I searched the interwebs for prognostications concerning tomorrow's UK Elections in Britain (Conservative Party's Boris Johnson vs Labour Party's Jeremy Corbyn) and found two excellent resources: one based on Astrology, the other via Tarot.

And curiously in both readings, horoscope and cards agree!

For Astrology here is a link to a reading by London astrologer Julian Venables and for Tarot here's Mary Ann of Revealing Light Tarot adding insight into hidden conditions.

For like the Republican Party in the US, Britain's Conservative Party has been in process of consuming itself in recent years, plus, the populace doesn't trust Boris, real change is needed, and the youth vote matters. So if neither party wins bigly in the UK then a coalition government may very well need to be formed by the victor no matter which party he represents (or purports to represent, typed the suspicious American!)

And so today I send out Best Wishes to the good people of Britain and my sincere hope for beneficial improvements in government on behalf of their families! jc

September 2019: Growing Awareness and Push Back!

On the Critical Month of September 2019

Isn't it helpful when Tarot and Astrology tag-team? Well, many SO'W readers follow Mary Ann's insightful Revealing Light Tarot channel on YouTube and if this is you, you've probably already seen her uplifting reading on World Energies in September: Revelation and Transformation posted August 30, 2019 in which she spotlights the September 2019 Full and New Moons among other factors.

Now to add a few astro-notes for September 2019 here's a SO'W post that actually concerns January 2020, another critical month, for contained within is a list of lunations for the rest of 2019 (leading up to January 2020 and the Big Conjunction of you-know-what). Notable is that the New Moon of September 28, 2019 @5Lib20 conjoins Trump's natal Neptune in his 2nd house of Money and Values. This lunation triggers or activates his inflationary trio of speculation, inflation, and fraud, Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter, posited in his 2nd house of Money and Values. Yet it's a darkened New Moon so perhaps it will take the bright rays of the Full Moon of October 13 @20Ari14 (conjunct US natal Chiron, our national wound and blind spot) to bring further revelations more fully into public awareness and thus trigger more of the transformation, push back, and regaining control that Mary Ann's Tarot reading engagingly suggests, for a process of change and improvement has begun!

Trump a TransPluto figure but Saturn-Pluto time nears

Image: Donald Trump's Precessed Progressions January 12, 2020 12:00 pm est showing his SP Pluto-TransPluto-MC-Saturn rendezvous. His non-precessed Progressions for that date show SP MC @1Leo34 conjunct his natal 12th cusp so SP Saturn @3Leo has yet to symbolically cross SP MC, but it will happen soon.

Astro-Notes re: TransPluto

When spoken of or infrequently used in Astrology, TransPluto is most often referred to as a hypothetical planet which may or may not actually exist. Well, it is said to orbit even farther away from Earth than distant Pluto itself yet according to expert astrologer Lynn Koiner, TransPluto Is Real! Now whether you agree with such an assessment or not, Lynn's article contains pertinent information concerning TransPluto and while reading it I recognized the bedeviling Donald Trump as the TransPluto figure who's been keeping the world awake each night with his wacky and deplorable--yes, deplorable--antics, bigotry, insults, propaganda, and criminal activities since his escalator descent of June 16, 2015 to announce his prez bid--expertly timed by a seed-planting New Moon @25Gem07 that very morning.

Now some folks consider TransPluto to be 'more plutonian than Pluto' but there's more...

For four years later we 'know' Trump better and it seems that the archetype of TransPluto described in Lynn's article--"Personality keywords: The Perfectionist/Perfectionism, Self-Sufficiency, The Reformer Complex, and Alienation"--apply directly to Mr. Trump (so determined to reform and rule the world which was Hitler's goal, too) so I hope you'll check out Lynn's assessment if you're unfamiliar with her research for these terms apply to Donald Trump much more deeply than my limited knowledge of TransPluto could ever have guessed. Plus, they support other chart factors and the work of other astrologers on the topic of Trump's childhood and the harsh criticism from Mom and Dad--especially Dad in his case--which made Donald the flawed, fear-driven, greedy individual he is today. Plus, Don Sr now passes on the crazy and treats his own sons in a similar witheringly critical fashion, Don Jr in particular.

(See astro-notes on Trump's unconscious 12th house of Politics, Karma, Self-Undoing, Secret Enemies and Hospitals--he's a man 'overshadowed by shadows'.)

Yes, such childhood issues apply to each of us, of course, for whose parents weren't narcissistic and made mistakes that continue to affect us negatively as adults? However, not everyone behaves as vengefully and achieves on the grand scale that the misshapen Donald Trump has with his bottomless pit of emotional needs for applause, approval, and his compulsive desperation on the material plane for more and better--and no criticism allowed. That's where the alienation comes in--work alone and no one can get close enough to you to criticize the flaws you fear you have. At least, that's his work method...alone for he can 'do it all' better than anyone else (as you may have heard!).

But his work conditions and/or methods may change drastically once the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January 12, 2020 occurs @22Cap46--precisely opposite Trump's natal 11th house Saturn in watery, Moon-ruled Cancer, a sign of self-protection and nationalism, and simultaneously conjuncts his natal Vertex (which relates to transformation at or in work, and to fated encounters). Plus, old man Saturn, planet of work, brings karmic lessons to us all and when opposing natal Saturn, negative conditions form which relate to past actions (and mistakes--and in his case, illegalities), plus, regret, failure, and a lack of progress often result. That's if the individual hasn't acted with integrity and taken responsibility for his actions as Saturn demands. Yet a lack of conscience can soften the blow and we may soon see whether or not Trump has one or no--if so, it is hidden deep within.

Now this particular fuss actually began unbidden when I had a look at Trump's Secondary Progressions ('SP') set for January 12, 2020 which shows his SP TransPluto at SP Midheaven and snugged right between his SP Saturn (in SP 9th house) and SP Pluto (10th house)--all at 3-5 degrees of ego-based Leo.

(Note that Lynn Koiner's article mentions that TransPluto is in its fall in Leo, with a negative connotation of selfishness and pomposity; that in his childhood Trump's parents cruelly activated such traits and embedded his deep fear of failure ("so much winning!") is no excuse for his adult, childish, unfeeling behavior.) Of course, there are several other chart factors supporting these problems in his psyche but today the focus of this post is his TransPluto.

And so on the mundane political level of so-called Trumpism, I consider the January 12, 2020 blending of harsh Saturn and Pluto energies in governmental, Saturn-ruled Capricorn to be a cosmic echo of, or a timing device related to, Trump's SP trio of Pluto-TransPluto-Saturn. And considering that restrictive Saturn and transformative Pluto are within orb of opposing the fellow's natal Saturn (and natal Venus, too--venal Venus, so vengeful when scorned), a period of alterations, discension, separations, work-related difficulties, and the winds of destiny are suggested and may finally greet Donald Trump at the crossroads in early 2020 or later.

EDIT Jan 1, 2023: now hoping they meet at the crossroads very soon in 2023! jc

Oct 16 2017: Stars Over Washington is 12 years old!

October 16, 2017: Stars Over Washington turns 12 today as its page view count nears two million. As you know, 12 is the age of accountability on the religious plane though this truism may not apply to a Political Astrology blog suffused with its Flower Power author's common good and peacenik sensibilities.

Of course for astrologers, 12 years brings to mind planet Jupiter so naturally I set up SO'W's Jupiter Return horoscope and found that it perfected on September 30, 2017. However, SO'W has never been about money and yours truly, a D.A.R. candidate, has never been on anyone's payroll, political or otherwise, for I'm an equal-opportunity critic of government! Writing this blog of dissent for the sake of America is the very least I can do for my ancestors who sacrificed, fought, and died for this country.

As always, readers are welcome to disagree with my political views but I'm typing them anyway--usually by using the excellent lens of Astrology to peek at the dark creatures who meddle with our lives as if they have the right!

So never mind Jupiter--today let's consider a few factors in the Solar Return 2017 chart of SO'W instead.

Natal and Solar Return (SR) chart-rulers are the same with Leo rising: the Sun in Libra. Both charts show Sun applying to conjoin jolly Jupiter, one of the societal planets (along with Saturn) that can also represent politicians as well as financiers, donors, corporatists, and gurus of various stripes. As chart-ruler of the SR 2017 chart, the Sun applies to three aspects which denote how things will proceed for the upcoming year (until Oct 16, 2018):

1. Sun sextile Saturn (0A13): a time when those in authority--even government!!--can or do offer advice or aid toward success or at least the opportunity (sextile) to achieve it. Yes, SO'W has been contacted by certain politicians over the years but it's confidential and involves no obvious aid that I can tell!

2. Sun opposite Uranus (3A37): unusual or unexpected actions may be taken and/or SO'W may go off in a new direction. There's really no way to tell with quirky Uranus, planet associated with radical politics and Utopians, and with Astrology and Technology.

3. Sun conjunct Jupiter (8A11): courage and optimism increase along with an expansion of knowledge--which is odd since I can hardly keep up with my book, article, and newsletter reading as it is! Plus, if this were transit Jupiter to natal Sun, indications would suggest that a project begun 12 years ago will end or will be raised to a higher level. Well, I did seriously consider ending SO'W last week but instead renewed its domain for another year--if only because 12 is an even number and 11 isn't!

The last chart factor I want to mention today is the Sun-Chiron pair which denotes one's Quest in life. In the natal horoscope of SO'W, Sun squares Chiron denoting that my Quest in setting up and writing SO'W concerned issues of socio-cultural authority (how true--the Bush-Cheney regime was on my last nerve by October 2005).

Now in the SR 2017 chart, Sun inconjuncts Chiron suggesting that for the next year, SO'W's Quest concerns health, education, and welfare (Nolle), three of the areas now under attack by the GOP, corporate Democrats, and their totem moron, Donald Trump, the insulter-in-chief.

Now if these crippling attacks that harm 99% of the American people don't stretch my nerves to a breaking point and inspire my continued dissent, I'm not certain what ever could.

My warmest thanks to all SO'W readers through the years for their kind Comments and encouraging Shares! America Forever, Jude

May 15, 2018 Uranus Enters Taurus; 2023 Pluto into Aquarius

May 15, 2018: Expect the Unpredictable: Uranus First Enters Venus-Ruled Taurus

In Astrology, Uranus is considered unpredictable, erratic, eccentric, separative, electric, eclectic, progressive, reforming, novelty loving, intense, disruptive, independent, a rebel and a fighter for freedom. In mundane charts US Uranus (8Gem55) is America's 'war planet' of revolution and revolt. Coming between the American and French Revolutions, the 1781 Discovery of Uranus by amateur astronomer William Herschel is an oft-told tale and one that may soon be made more newsworthy by the fact that on May 15, 2018 at 11:17 am edt, the quirky maverick of a planet will leave Aries in the Tropical Zodiac and enter the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus the Bull. Money, materialism, possessiveness, intolerance, and greed are the negative keywords of Taurus with growth, building, designing, and stability the more positive traits usually mentioned. (Noting that it's the love of money that is the root of all evil, not money itself).

In November 2018, transit Uranus re-enters Aries, turns Direct in early January 2019, then lurches into Taurus again on or about March 7, 2019.

Uranus from Aries to Taurus; Pluto from Capricorn to Aquarius

Now as you know, with Uranus lurching through Mars-ruled Aries since 2010, we've been seeing and experiencing much of what Reinhold Ebertin describes as Utopians, blind zealots, radical reformers, fanatics, and anarchists brashly and stubbornly expressing themselves within the Collective, their ambitions often shown via sudden outbursts of energy and violence, plus, efforts to enforce their 'against the mainstream' ideas.

So how will Uranus in Taurus affect societal conditions as surely it must? Uranus is the only one of our solar system's three outer (transpersonal) planet that will change signs until transit Pluto, planet of power, wealth, and stealth, leaves governmental Capricorn and enters Aquarius while simultaneously trodding upon America's inaugural Sun (00AQ+ = POTUS in our January 20th Inauguration horoscopes--assuming America will have another president).

And then for the first time in approximately 248 years, transit Pluto reaches 00AQ00 during the third week of March 2023, retrogrades on or about June 2, 2023, then it's backwards into Capricorn (triggering 29Cap, a critical degree) for a while until power wielding Pluto, the saboteur, re-enters Aquarius on or about January 22, 2024. Transit Pluto to US Inaugural Sun (POTUS) suggests a new start or a different lifestyle than before for the Oval office occupant-in-chief. Of course Pluto breaks down in order to 'build anew upon the ruins', plus, things are always unpredictable and disruptive with Uranus, so few if any people have a clear idea of how damaged the US presidency may turn out to be as long as the eccentric Uranian Mr. Trump plays and tweets the role into laughing stock territory. (Some hidden power behind the throne wanted him there to hobble America!)

Now as you know, Pluto in Capricorn suggests a strong archetypal image of The Dictator (Ebertin) and it's interesting that America was founded while manipulator Pluto, of the invisible cape, was in the sign of Saturn-ruled Capricorn, in late degrees. However, Pluto in scientific, futuristic Aquarius exhibits a different picture entirely for a Uranian flavor is added to Pluto via Aquarius. According to Reinhold Ebertin, Pluto in Aquarius is about those displaying any, all, or none of the following expressions: a wealth of plans, a strong communal sense, the urge to reform, popularity, life advancement through the help of other people, and/or a potential for exaggerated plans and hopes.

So there's a small portrait of Uranus moving into the fixed energies of Taurus and Pluto doing the same and moving into the fixed, more rigid sign of Aquarius.

April--May 2016: 5 planets retrograde, no air, spot check: Steve Judd video report

April 27, 2016: master astrologer Steve Judd reports from the UK on the current condition of the planets including Mercury's upcoming retrograde on April 28 @23Taurus, what it means to have Mercury Rx in the natal chart, and the abundance of retrograde energies in the Cosmos:

Related cosmic events are the Mercury Transit of the Sun and Jupiter's Direct Station @13Virgo with both events occurring May 9, 2016.

Mercury square Mars and locations for the solar eclipse: Steve Judd

Mercury-Mars signatures are always favored around Stars Over Washington for their political connotations, propensity toward debate (preferably of issues, not personalities), and strong opinions (which may or may not be expressed). Mercury square Mars and more are well addressed here by astrologer Steve Judd along with information on the March 9, 2016 Solar Eclipse:

'Understanding Corporate Logos' (video) and Symbolism

Early on in the study of Astrology, we novices become accustomed to working with glyphs such as those for planets and Zodiacal signs, ancient archetypes found in constellations and mythology, and symbols such as the Sabian Symbols. In our daily visual world we find symbols liberally sprinkled throughout our lives though their deeper meanings may be veiled, obscured, and purposefully hidden. Few are as ubiquitous as those used in advertising and promotion.

What we think we see is never all we perceive

For your consideration, here are excerpts in two parts of Understanding Corporate Logos (total run time 16 mins 28 secs) which discuss the occult (hidden) implications of certain symbols which the corporate world typically call logos, a Greek word from which English derives the word 'logic' and denoting persuasion of a targeted audience via reason and logic, a left brain function (analysis, words.)

This seems curious (by which I mean, duplicitous) since the following corporate symbolic logos are sneakily aimed directly toward the right side of our brains, the intuitive, image processing area:

Personality Blends of Franklin, Washington, Paine, and Jefferson

In Astrology, natal Sun (conscious) and Moon (unconscious) combinations provide details concerning a native's personality blend so it may be interesting to consider the Sun-Moon blends of four Founding Fathers: Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Thomas Jefferson in honor of Memorial Day 2015. After all, there might have been no American Revolution--our nation's First Cause for War--without their personal involvement in the founding of America.

Here they are in chronological order of birth; all natal data but Paine's have Rodden Ratings of AA. Paine's hour of birth has been rectified and both times are given; however, since the Moon remained in Gemini the entire day of Paine's birth, we may confidently use his natal Sun-Moon blend with the rest.

The combined elements of the founding foursome show Franklin and Washington with practical Earth and Water blends (mud!), Jefferson with a high-flying, inspired Double Fire mix, and Paine possessing a Double Air (cerebral) blend. We may surmise that among these personalities, Franklin and Washington were on some practical level 'on the same page' while Paine and Jefferson had their uplifting writing talents in common. And naturally, an Air-Air type such as author Paine would have had a difficult if not impossible task turning his revolutionary ideas into reality without the pragmatism of men such as Franklin and Washington and the supportive creative force of Thomas Jefferson.

(Most of the following information is gleaned from Sun Sign-Moon Sign by Charles and Suzi Harvey; their 'Images for Integration' may be useful for comparison along with a quote from each fellow and, in parentheses, a few examples of others who were born under the same Sun-Moon blends. All natal data from historical, baptismal, or Bible records.)

Benjamin Franklin January 17, 1706 10:30 am LMT Boston, Massachusetts: Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces (Earth-Water): scientist and poet; pragmatist and dreamer; humanitarian and organizer; tough and tender; dependable but private; dutiful but a softy; insightful and ambitious; promoter of moral precepts (if not a follower); fear of the unknown; willing to bend the truth to fit a thesis; can bring order out of chaos (perfect for the era and the founding of their Utopian new order).

Images for Integration: "A wine collector uncorks a rare vintage to celebrate a success...A child builds a sandcastle of reinforced concrete...Bilbo in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings...Paul Cezanne's Bathers in a Landscape (Ben preferred nudity!)

(Paul Cezanne, J.R.R. Tolkien, J. Edgar Hoover, Elvis Presley.)

"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of." - Benjamin Franklin.

George Washington February 22, 1732 10:00 am LMT Colonial Beach, Virginia: Sun Pisces-Moon Capricorn (Water-Earth): practical visionary; paternal; serious and self-reflective; deep sense of duty and of justice; humane and charitable; valued a sense of community and family; moralistic and judgmental; great organizer; did not suffer fools gladly; a reserved romantic (and quite busy in the romantic realm, I've heard--probably sterile from childhood illnesses); secretive and defensive.

Images for Integration: An old freighter chugs toward the port, bringing in the goods...A famous actress leaves her estate to the Actors' Pension Fund.

(Samuel Pepys, Percival Lowell, Anais Nin, Philip Roth.)

"Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company." - George Washington

Thomas Paine February 9, 1737 11:30 am LMT, or rectified to 10:42:30 am (Starkman) Thetford, England: Sun Aquarius-Moon Gemini (Air-Air): a politically progressive 'New Age' thinker, idealist, and promoter determined to 'change the world'; possessed of a strong social conscience; a gift for lateral thinking; a wit and philosopher; a 'way with words'; a 'bright butterfly' flitting to the next new project or idea; friendly, charming, and sociable; a peacemaker, negotiator, natural communicator, and 'networker' who could strike up a conversation with anyone; unsentimental; tendency to squander talents and scatter energies; flexible yet stubborn; Achilles heel? close intimacy with others and the emotional realm.

Images for Integration: A white blackbird charms the garden with its song...A child in a balloon drifts over the city reporting back by portable phone on all below.

(Saul Alinsky, Proclus, Jack Benny, Joseph Wambaugh, Elihu Root.)

"The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately." - Thomas Paine

Thomas Jefferson April 13, 1743 1:53 am LMT Shadwell, Virginia: Sun Aries-Moon Sagittarius (Fire-Fire): a 'BIG personality'; a visionary (a trait shared with the mystical Washington); a futurist; highly intuitive; a grandiose philosopher; focused on large ideas; wrapped up in ideologies; impatient and highly strung; prone to exaggeration; a daredevil explorer and adventurer; emphatic; talkative (yet a whisperer who stuttered--not much on public speaking); friendly and fun-loving; vital and independent; promoter of pet causes; intensely honorable; able to inspire others to action; in love with love and life; exuberant; emotionally ardent; practical duties tended to weigh down the spirit; contagious optimism; inventive but with a need for more practicality; impatient with the limitations of the material world (always in debt); childlike emotions.

One Image for Integration: A child shoots an arrow towards the enchanted castle in the distance as he follows the road less traveled.

(Samuel Beckett, Robert Fludd, Erich Fromm, Gus Grissom, Thomas Hobbes, Garry Kasparov, Ravi Shankar, Vincent Van Gogh.)

Let's close with a few words from Thomas Jefferson, words that a majority of New Millennium-Global Government politicians seem incapable of taking to heart--or, they consider other priorities to be much more important than those of the American people as they make a mockery of the government that was set up by the founders:

"When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself as public property."


Here's some timely info concerning George Washington posted yesterday to mark his Secondary Progressed Full Moon on June 1, 2015.

Hexagon: a New Astrology Magazine Debuts, August 2015!

Good news for astrologers and for those merely curious about the cosmic art: on August 19, 2015, Hexagon, a fresh, cutting edge astrology magazine concerning contemporary topics will be released. Tap or click for details about this exciting effort, the first new astrology magazine to debut in decades.

And please consider supporting Hexagon via Kickstarter or subscribe as you wish!

Now admittedly my focus these last several years has been on Political Astrology, especially that of Washington DC, so finding that one of the topics of Hexagon's first issue will be the Astrology of the NSA gives me reason to look forward to broiling August which is typically my least favorite month of the year (due to the extreme temperatures here in Georgia...can you blame me?)

So tonight from East Coast to West, I happily send out harmonic vibes and best wishes for success to the writers, artists, and publishers of Astrology's newest star, Hexagon magazine!

US Tax Payers Subsidizing Fossil Fuel Companies!

#Oil #Gas #FuelIndustry #subsidies #UStaxpayers are #chumps #BobbyJindal #payola #ThomHartmann #TheGuardian

Shhhh! Neptune at Work

The financial exploitation of US taxpayers by the power elite that Thom spotlights from The Guardian reminds me that oily, gaseous Neptune is having a sneaky, slippery old time wafting its way through its own sign of Pisces and I suppose the current Spring Equinox Solar Eclipse from March 20, 2015 @29Pisces is stirring up the silt at the bottom of the pond with news reports of weasely fraud and graft (more words from Neptune's realm of deception.)

Plus, as you know, eclipses have a wild card of the Universe reputation for Uranian disruption and unpredictable surprises including the uncovering or leaking of dirty secrets or other details that certain fraudsters, crooks, and bad actors would prefer to keep concealed. Yes, this includes enabling politicians such as Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Now this is where I type, peep-eye!

"Royal Baby Princess Astrology" - Barbara Goldsmith video

For those who may be interested in the newbie member of the Germanic royal family of Britain, here is a 7-minute+ presentation by Barbara Goldsmith concerning the natal horoscope of the "first princess to be born in 25 years!":

'Baby Windsor' born May 2, 2015 8:34 am London, UK: "very Venusian...charming...and also fiesty." Note Mom's outfit spotlighting 5-petaled flowers of Venus which resonates with occult star symbolism, the pentagram, and .

Be sure to visit Barbara at Your Astrology Signs.

On the topic of star symbolism you may wish to check out an intriguing post concerning George Washington as a 'star family' member and the alleged relationship between his family coat of arms and a major American symbol, the Stars and Stripes.

And here is a Biblical view of such topics as the occult symbols of Washington DC (ex: Pentagon = pentagram, our national 'Death Star'), George Washington (33rd-degree Freemason), and America's ultimate destiny as the "New Atlantis" established for the purpose of assuming the "global leadership of the drive to the New World Order" -- if you're curious about such things, that is.

#GeorgeWashington #StarFamilies #EnochianPriests #Freemasonry #America #ManifestDestiny #TheGreatPlan #PentagonPentagram #WashingtonDC #NWO #GlobalGovernment #WorldCop

Related: the Pentagon natal chart (April 29, 1942 10:30 am EDT Washington DC; ASC 15Can37; MC 27Pis09). You will note a revealing midpoint picture in the chart between mystical, visionary Neptune and Midheaven (MC--The Goal) with warring Mars which Michael Munkasey gives as: a need to activate plans derived from mystical images...or metaphysical sources," Mmm. The potentials Reinhold Ebertin adds to the Neptune-MC = Mars picture: desire to bring the wrong ideas into realization; study of metaphysical subjects; desire to harm other people; tendency to act without clear understanding or purpose. Sounds about right especially in tandem with other midpoint pictures in the natal chart and the planetary placements and aspects therein.

As a Saturnian astrologer I read in horoscopes South Nodes, the Moon, the Unconscious 12th house of karma and self-undoing, the Vertex and Anti-Vertex, and other karmic points and indicators as reaping-what's-been-sown rather than as past-life-reincarnation information. For me, past-life karmic material means genetic inheritance and I adhere to the theory that certain chart factors such as YOD patterns alert us to issues, circumstances, and behaviors that were not successfully or positively handled or resolved by our ancestors and which must now play out in the current life and be dealt with--hopefully with awareness and skill. The over-used word 'closure' comes to mind.

Astrology is not a belief system. Yet I do believe that the revelation of one's inherited tendencies is one of the better reasons to know and understand one's natal chart and thus to know thyself which includes unconscious motivations!

Yet on the other palm...

Though quite the Uranian, astrologer, author, lecturer, genius, showman, and pioneer Manly Palmer Hall remains a valuable source for Astrology studies and was a fascinating, complex character as well. See what you think about this excerpt from one of his talks on the topic of the natural law: Reap What You Sow...

"Self, or the last illusion" (video w music)

Self, or the last illusion is a film by a man who tells us 'what we are not'.

I found this film to be a knock-out though some of its images (illusions themselves) botherate me since I don't cotton overmuch to images of skulls or sinews or the like. Robotics can be marvelled at but that's about the extent of my viewing of them. Futurism is fine but there are standards.

Anyway, the topic of this video may seem not to belong on this, my Political Astrology blog, certainly not by topic. Or perhaps I embed it here so that arrogant politicians and their handlers might inadvertently find the film...due to the sad truth that few if any politicians have souls that haven't already been sold to the (seemingly) highest bidder. Which is to say, 'And Man became a living soul', not that we have 'souls' to barter away. It's more like we give our hearts to cruel masters who lie, cheat, and deceive us, y'know?

Inside the Beltway, or out, I personally recommend viewing Self, or the last illusion full screen for many of its images are life affirming, technically brilliant, and to my mind, Welcome in the darkest of corners of this old Earth and are much longed-for in the heart-breaking circumstances which usually come to us all at some point in our or our loved ones' lives.

Into each life, Niobe mourns for lost children, while in one of her roles, seductress Lilith is said to take them away...

The Legend of Lilith is one example of the content we find online these days concerning this controversial archetype...and you know that one of her many faces is controversy!

Well, my hopes are that we all are of good cheer while standing up for our rights and that no harm may come to the innocent from secret activists ('plants') who hide within organizations and practice stirring peaceful protests into free-for-alls with resulting lock-ups. For the art of infiltration (in Politics and Business) was perfected centuries ago by entities whose name/s I shall not mention. In the days ahead, there will much gossip, many slanders, and other libels within society which finally surfaces in the news, and if time allowed, we could discuss some of the astrological signatures of Neptune-in-Pisces influences in relation to Current Events right this minute. Alas, non!

Therefore, since this weekend blog time is brief because I have Report-writing to get back to for Electronic Delivery next weekend of America's Jupiter Return Report 2013 (horoscope shown, PDF), I'll simply remind you of what you don't need reminding of: a place called the Neptune Cafe for Political Astrology discussions with Washington and America quite often spotlighted by the owner/author, Michael O'Reilly, who prefers the Scorpio Rising chart as America's natal horoscope (July 4, 1776). jc

The Moon has pull w the Hadron Collider!

Oops! Our Moon's Gravitational Pull Affects Large Hadron Collider

by Jude Cowell

Now who would've guessed that the minute gravitational pull of Earth's Moon is affecting the Large Hadron Collider?

Could it be that there are more things under heaven and earth than are dreamed of in science labs? Yet you and I know that amazing cosmic affects are and have been dreamed of in Astrology studies and practices for centuries! The best way to trust Astrology is to use it though it is not a belief system but a language and a tool for understanding self and the wider world depending on how it's applied.

This Moon-affects-Hadron story reminds me of years ago when I first heard it announced by scientists that the human body contains the same elements as the earth's crust--quelle surpise! Well, I thought, the tale of God creating Adam from the dust of the earth is hereby verified by those who prefer scientific proof over faith in God's Word--at least for those with ears to hear. Okay, perhaps scientists came a little late to the party but better late than you-know-what...
