Dec 2023: Leona occults Betelgeuse!

Rising: The Constellations in the Sky

by Jude Cowell

On December 11, 2023, a rare celestial event occurred when asteroid Leona (#319), discovered on October 8, 1891 at the Nice Observatory in France, occulted starry Betelgeuse in the right shoulder of constellation Orion. Perhaps you caught the story in or on Scientific American published December 11th. An Eastern Time of 8:17 pm is cited in the article for the seconds-long occultation, with December 12th the date the path crossed Southern Europe, Turkey, Greece, and Sicily.

Setting a December 11th horoscope for Washington DC for 8:17 pm EST shows America's 1776 North Node rising with Midheaven @23Ari30 conjunct the transiting North Node @23Ari28 although other times and locations of the occultation would naturally vary, and you'll see sprinklings about Trump on the chart, plus, with asteroid Leona, you know that Supreme Court whisperer Leonard Leo must be lurking about somewhere.

Well, here's a quickly marked-up horoscope for your consideration which may also be used as merely a transit chart for December 11, 2023:

Keywords for Betelgeuse: Fame, success, good fortune, determined, shrewd, a rebel, rash, inventive, fevers, acute illness (A. Louis). Note that there are indications of someone's nervousness and/or neuroses on the chart (see lower right corner's New Moon) although admittedly, this could describe many people in light of current events. The occultation's Vertex ('VX' of fated encounters) conjuncts Trump's natal Moon-South Node of fluctuating popularity and emotional estrangement.

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.

A Lost Atlantis: Archetype of America

The Lost City of Atlantis; public domain image

Is America Lost? Or Only Preparing to Rise?

by Jude Cowell

Everyone knows the story of the Myth of the Island of Atlantis, its abuse, misuse, and overuse of power, sinking disastrously into the ocean, and at some glorious future point rising like a mythological phoenix from the ashes. So what do you think? Was the phoenix archetype played out on and after the attacks of 9/11? Did 'The Tower' Eclipse of 2018 add to the cosmic picture of a smoldering America, struggling to rise, with her rebuilding now hindered by adversarial authoritarians following a peculiar agenda?

Well, I must say that if 500 years is the measure of a mythological phoenix crashing, burning, and rising, then America at 256 years old in 2022 is only a little over halfway there!

Now astronomically, Atlantis #1198 was first discovered at the Heidelberg Observatory by astronomer Karl Reinmuth on September 7, 1931 with minor planet Atlantis Rx @27Pis52 and parallel science-oriented Uranus, planet of futurism and technology, then in Aries, and aka, the 'Sky God' in olden days. A parallel compares to a strong conjunction, as you know.

Plus, we've discussed Atlantis before on SO'W way back in 2017, the first year that Tr*mp was refusing to understand or honor the limits of his presidential power, breaking rules, traditions, and laws at every turn. Unrepentent, he got worse, as you know, and now refuses to keep his gob shut although a deposition or two may come along for him soon. If so, he'll probably clam up and hide behind the 5th Amendment. Someone should show him the mash-up videos of his multitude of criticisms of folks who plead the 5th Amendment - they're "mobsters," he said. Well, yes. So he will reveal himself to be, if he "pleads the 5th".

So! If Atlantis, Archetype of America is a topic that interests you, a previous post might do so as well for it contains links to the natal chart of Sir Francis Bacon, author of the book, The New Atlantis, and one of the prime puppeteers behind the funding and setting up of the 'New World' here in America, the controversial mystery of Queen Elizabeth I possibly being Sir Bacon's Mummy (crazy!), and other related goodies:

A New Atlantis, Williamsburg, and Our Secret Destiny.

Now let's close with the rounded-up degree and Sabian Symbol of Atlantis's discovery degree, plus, the Symbol for its Zodiacal position as I type, both from Marc Edmund Jones:

Atlantis Discovery September 7, 1939: "28Pisces": "A Fertile Garden Under a Full Moon": Keyword - ULTIMACY; positive expression: high reward in worldly goods and exceptional integrity in using them; negative expression: irritating pride of possession."

Atlantis Today February 27, 2022: "18Sagittarius": "Tiny Children in Sunbonnets" - Keyword: INNOCENCE; positive expression: a continual and complete protection of self through its exploration of its own potentials and exploitation of its oppotunities; negative expression: witless retreat to a wholly infantile self-assertiveness."

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.

The Highest-Resolution Thermal Images of Jupiter Yet - MSNBC

Jupiter in scientifically minded Virgo is in the spotlight on July 4, 2016! Astrologically speaking, this could have something to do with Jupiter and the North Node (of the Moon) traveling together in Virgo this year with the North Node relating to encounters, publicity, and public contact and Jupiter the planet being encountered by spacecraft Juno!

On May 9, 2016 Mercury Transits the Sun

On Monday May 9, 2016, the Great Cosmic Clock that is our Solar System provides us a rather rare view into its machinations via a Mercury Transit across the Sun. The last one occurred on November 8, 2006 with Mercury at 16 Scorpio. On May 9, Mercury will be opposite its 2008 degree at 19 Taurus (Tropical Zodiac).

So if you're as curious as a Mercurial person can be about this 13-to-14-times-per-century spectacle, check out Brian Ventrudo's Guide to the May 9, 2016 Transit of Mercury.

Actually May 9 stands out for another cosmic reason because giant Jupiter performs a Direct Station that very morning at 8:14 am edt on the 13 Virgo degree. Somehow both events in the heavens seem to me to relate to Campaign 2016 in the US--Mercury rules voting, voters, speeches, rhetoric, travels, plans, actors, tricksters, thieves, traders, and such while Jupiter plays many roles in Mundane Astrology--among them, politicians, actors, bankers, and financiers.

View Prominent Jupiter on March 8, 2016!

Earth's closest approach to Jupiter in 2016 occurs on March 8 @18Virgo, precisely opposing the degree of the March 9, 2016 Solar Eclipse @18Pis56. Yes, that's Jupiter you're seeing in the morning sky but for further information on viewing the Gas Giant, don't miss Brian Ventrudo's An Observer's Guide to Planet Jupiter which includes a NASA video of the Great Benefic, the largest planet in our Solar System (only the Sun is larger.)

Astrological Jupiter in Virgo

As you know, Pisces, the sign of the March 9, 2016 Solar Eclipse, is traditionally ruled by Jupiter (and sub-ruled by oceanic Neptune, discovered in 1846.) Jupiter also rules Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker, which resonates with astrological Jupiter's hierophant/codified religion/ideology facets of this boundary breaking planet. When in Pisces, societal planet Jupiter spotlights potentials in the Collective that magnify tendencies of the 'swim up or swim down' sign of Pisces--to the heights or to the depths of humanity. Spirituality and compassion are part of Piscean realms as well and Virgo-Pisces is the victim-savior axis of the Zodiac. Turn on the news and we hear both sides of the human condition playing out across the globe with altruism, impressionability, overindulgence in negative escapism such as alcohol and other drugs receiving constant mentions.

The March 9th Solar Eclipse in its role as 'wild card' of the Universe will behave as eclipses often do: uncovering secrets and scandals, many of which may be inconvenient for those affected--and 2016 candidates and various politicians are not exempt especially if they have natal planets or points in the 17-19 degrees of Virgo or Pisces! Also of interest in the realms of Political Astrology: the March 9th eclipse is the Pre-Natal Eclipse of both the RNC and DNC nomination events in July. Tap or click the eclipse link, above, for more info.

While traveling through Mercury-ruled Virgo, expansive Jupiter tends to activate such traits as: ethical and moral values, the urge to gain knowledge, teaching, excessive ambition, superficial criticism, an ability to organize, thoughtlessness, and the possibility of harmonious teamwork. (The Combination of Stellar Influences, Reinhold Ebertin.) To this I would add scientific (Virgo) breakthroughs or discoveries (Jupiter) with Jupiter also signifying exploration and finances (Wall Street is loaded with Jupiterians!) Big (Jupiter) Plans (Mercury) are on the political agenda. (Note that Mercury also rules trading and deals such as those promised in the rhetoric of Donald Trump, the artful deal-maker.)

So as you see, some of the traits on the Jupiter-in-Virgo list relate to Campaign 2016, plus, two of the many hats astrological Jupiter may wear are The Politician and The Broadcaster. Campaign promises (Jupiter) include more jobs (Virgo) and better access to (free or more affordable) education which Jupiter in Virgo naturally favors.

So perhaps even armchair astronomers may care to tip their hats in honor of Jupiter, King of Planets, on March 8, 2016--he's a bright beauty!

Update Feb 19, 2016: here's a scientific breakthrough in space thanks to photography and the Hubble Telescope: what's a 'Super' Jupiter?

July 14, 2015 Pluto opposes Mars and SIRIUS for its historic New Horizons Flyby

Today's Pluto Flyby to Give a Closer Look at the Outermost Planet

July 14, 2015: During the dark of the Moon, the shady days leading up to the July 15th *New Moon @23Cancer--which conjoins US natal Mercury Rx--at 7:49 am ET today, NASA's New Horizons reached Pluto for its closest flyby and some sharper images sporting higher resolution than ever before seen will result of Astrology's planet of power, subterfuge, and death--Pluto. Speaking of death, Pluto discoverer (1930), Clyde Tombaugh, requested that his ashes be inside any spacecraft bound for Pluto...and so they are.

Astrologically, 'sharp analysis' is a potential within the midpoint picture now formed with Pluto opposing the Mercury-Mars conjunction in Cancer. At 13Can18, Mars is also out of bounds (of the earthly plane = outstanding activities) and conjoins SIRIUS, a star intimately linked to the founding of America. Mars and SIRIUS now conjunct US natal Sun (leadership; the president) by a mere one-minute orb.

In addition, from Earth's perspective, Pluto arose today with fixed star Toliman, aka Bungala (Alpha Centauri); key theme: learning and education that expand the worldview of others (paraphrasing B. Brady). Curiously, Mars arose today with a star that is also in the Centauri constellation: Agena (Beta Centauri); key theme: to have a mission. Both themes of these stars seem applicable to NASA's New Horizons project which culminated near Pluto today.

Considering that there is a 'clamoring for power' vibe to Mars-Pluto contacts, I hope such adventurous thrusts into the Solar System won't relate to or promote further breakthroughs (Jupiter still within orb of its 'scientific breakthrough' trine to technological Uranus) in the realm of Space Warfare intended to enable transnational globalists' long term mission of full implementation of total global control. You can tell I have trouble trusting the organization invented by nazi war criminals, the German scientists exported to the US after the war, can't you?

#NASA #NewHorizons #Pluto

*Note that the military exercises known as 'Jade Helm 15' are timed by the July 15, 2015 New Moon conjunct US natal Mercury Rx which also activates our nation's surveillance-oriented Mercury-Pluto opposition which is visually represented in once instance by the all-seeing eye at top of the pyramid of power on US currency, America's Great Seal, and elsewhere. See the video What Is Jade Helm 15?, a previous post which includes the horoscope of the Solar Eclipse that will herald the ending in mid-September of the controversial Pentagon program of militarism.

Summer 2015: a Starry Summer Triangle, Pluto's historic flyby - Cosmic Pursuits (plus, astro-notes)

Cosmic Pursuits, Brian Ventrudo's excellent astronomy website and newsletter, gives us a heads-up on the brilliant Summer Triangle of stars Vega, Altair, and Deneb (Adige) with double star Albireo twinkling colorfully in the triangle's center.

Of course, depending on your vantage point, the trio may be called the Winter Triangle!

Now let's consider a little astrology concerning Vega (Alpha Lyrae, the Lyre of Orpheus in the Lyra constellation), Altair (Alpha Aquilae, constellation Aquila, the Eagle), and Deneb in constellation Cygnus the Swan, with Deneb (Alpha Cygnus) as its tail.

Among others, these stars have appeared here on Stars Over Washington in previous posts, some of which are linked below or are searchable via the sidebar Search field by name, or try 'fixed stars' if you dare.

Keywords and themes for Vega (or, Wega) include magic, mysticism, other-worldliness, and charisma. As with all stars that are prominent in a horoscope, Vega's expression depends upon the planet/s or chart angles it is linked to by conjunction, opposition, or by paran (rising, culminating, setting with, etc.) Artistry is indicated either positively as in the Arts, or negatively as in criminal activities; plus, its connection to the Lyre of Orpheus provides a magical divine spells implication along with musical talent. Leadership ability and social awareness may also be noted with Vega but a caution is to avoid pretentiousness.

Keywords and themes for Altair include boldness, dogged determination, and achievement through risk-taking. Altair is a masculine star of strength and action that is taken--not just for the self, but for others when its energy is positively directed. Yet its swift and bold action traits may also express themselves with rashness and excessive aggression as we see by the eagle symbols of the Roman Empire and the American Empire acting under a foolhardy urge to conquer, vanquish, devour, and/or control. Still, a planetary or angular link with Altair promises high honors and preferment though they may be temporary (as with everything other earthly thing, This too shall pass).

With starry Deneb we find keywords and themes of the willingness to become aware, mystical or transcendental qualities or interests, spirituality and the inner journey, and the shamanistic legend of the World Egg. Deneb prominent in a horoscope bestows intelligence, artistic talent, and scientific ability. In addition, there is a duality surrounding Deneb for it can express both the strength and the aggression of a swan, one of the more vicious guardians of the animal kingdom--the "strong fighting bird and the swan-god"!

Popular Pluto To Have Professional Photos Taken!

Then for discerning Pluto fans, this summer marks the planet's (okay, dwarf planet's) historic flyby 'rendezvous' with NASA's New Horizons spacecraft set for July 14th which puts everyone in mind of another historic flyby of distant Neptune and its moon Triton by Voyager 2 in 1989 (see video recreation, below). On July 14, 2015 Pluto Rx will fall upon its current zodiacal degree of 14 Capricorn and some minutes--still within orb of US natal Sun (13Can19) which conjoins Egyptian goddess star, Sirius (The Scorcher) and Canopus (the navigator or pathfinder).

#Neptune #Triton #Voyager2 #NASA #Pluto #NewHorizons

Astrology of 1989 vs 2015: Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto

Voyager 2's closest encounter with Neptune and Triton occurred on August 25, 1989 (yes, Taylor Swift's birth year and album title) when Neptune was at 9Cap48 in the Tropical Zodiac. Perhaps you recognize 1989 as the year of the last Great Conjunction/s of Saturn and Neptune, a pair that has much to say in societal and political realms. Meeting three times through the year (March 3, June 24, November 13) in the degree range of 10 to 12 Capricorn, we note that transiting Pluto has very recently stomped on and around this degree of Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business, and remains within orb.

So if we use a 5-degree orb on either side of slow-moving Pluto we see that 4Cap to 14Cap is our focus though its powerful influence has been stronger while applying to the 9/10Cap area where gaseous Neptune floated on August 25, 1989. We have noted Pluto conjoining the Saturn-Neptune conjunction/s of 1989 in previous posts since its implications suit politicians and the corporatists who fund and direct them perfectly within the midpoint picture formed by this significant trio which includes these potentials:

Saturn-Neptune = Pluto: denial of responsibility by the guilty; fear of loss. (Tyl)

Naturally these potentials apply to both political parties in the US yet I think first of the GOP since 1989 implicates a Republican White House! Plus, America's ongoing socialism-communism-capitalism "debate" is found within the Saturn-Neptune duo as is secret or invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn), a description nearer the truth imho.

So when ancient Pluto has its close-up on July 14, 2015 and clocks in from our earthly vantage point at 14Cap, it qualifies as a Pluto-to-Neptune transit for society--ongoing since late November 2010. It marks a period of moral and religious issues such as abortion, mercy killing, executions and methods used, genetic engineering, GMO food contamination, chemically eroded health, racial and minority prejudices acted out, social welfare programs, workers' and Civil Rights as power and control slowly erode via unseen forces--or are seen to be only illusions and delusions.

Several other social concerns of the 1989 era still need to be addressed such as environmental degradation (Earth Day was revived in 1990), climate change, oil spills (now add coal ash leaks, bad water quality, and fracking), droughts and floods, 'mysterious' fish and bird kills, whale beachings, shark attacks, election irregularities, uranium and plutonium leaks, revolutions, conflicts, and topplings of government leaders across the globe along with the Fall of the Berlin Wall (and of Communism) which at the time seemed to justify America claiming victory in the 'Cold War' (which some say has returned). You can think of more examples, I'm certain.

Yet many if not all of these events were and are staged by those who profit from the wars and revolutions they take none of the blame for (denial of guilt) so let us note that on a deeper level the Pluto-to-Neptune transit indicates political, economic, and physical power struggles that actually have as their foundation uplifting spiritual ideals that identify the Collective's deep thirst for honesty, compassion, and clear-eyed solutions instead of the charlatanism, fraud, corruption, and propaganda we and Mother Earth continue to endure and accept at our peril.

Perhaps, but the following 30-minute video is not for the faint of heart or for the spiritually insecure so view at your own discretion. Herr Beethoven supplies the music, the Cosmos supplies the comets, meteors, and fireballs which have been increasing in number for the last few years, have you noticed?

Some curious links are made to catastrophes and corresponding years when an increase in such fiery cosmic visitors have been observed and recorded. For as it says in Revelation 6:13, And the stars in the sky fell to earth.

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...

Horrocks First Views a Venus Transit in 1639

Those Rare Venus Transits 1639 - 2117

by Jude Cowell

Coming soon to a Cosmos near you is the Venus Transit of June 5 or 6, 2012 in mid-Gemini. The excellent publication History Today tells of astronomer and mathematician Jeremiah Horrocks, a Liverpudlian, who forecasted then observed for the first time a Venus Transit (aka, Occultation of the Sun) on November 24, 1639.

Note: to read the article in full one must subscribe to History Today but the basics are there for you.

Young Mr. Horrocks made a telescope of his own and achieved this cosmic feat but since the precise hour of his observance is unknown, a New Moon--actually a *Solar Eclipse--that very evening makes an excellent timer and provides a symbolic chart of the observance if not a correctly timed event chart. How a viewing was possible during an eclipse, I do not know, however, horoscope details are listed below. You'll notice that the Solar Eclipse degree in 1639 conjoins the Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 (2Sag37), 1639's Pluto conjoins the current Solar Eclipse degree of May 20, 2012 (00Gem21, a 1-minute orb!), and the position of Venus in 1639 opposes Venus' degree of June 5/6, 2012 (15Gem45 Rx, a 2 degr-6 min orb), something of a Full Moon phase for Venus Transits:

November 24, 1639 Total Solar Eclipse at 10:39:41 pm LMT (NS) Liverpool, England: Venus Across the Sun

Sun/Moon 2Sag34:21; Mercury 25Sco14; Venus Rx 17Sag51; Mars 23Lib31; Jupiter 13Sag41; Saturn 13AQ12; Uranus 00Sco32; Neptune 23Sco16; Pluto Rx 00Gem22; Chiron Rx 21Tau05; NN 9Sag23. When the chart is set for Liverpool there is quite a pile-up of planets in 4th house: IC 16Sco02--Neptune, Mercury, Sun/Moon, NN, Jupiter, and Venus, all of which fall between Sir **Isaac Newton's natal Uranus 15Sco40, (Neptune 00Sag58), and Mercury 20ASag56. Horrocks' excellent math ability and astronomical calculations of the Venus Transit phenomenon opened the door to Sir Isaac Newton's brilliant work.

Well, the next Venus Transit isn't until December 11, 2117 so you and I had better climb onboard for this one and sail across the Sun, right? ;p


*The Solar Eclipse of 1639 fell in the 2 Old North Saros Series: 'difficult themes, with unfortunate or glum news concerning relationships; separation or the ending of a union but quick action can bring positive results' (Brady's Predictive Astrology); this is the Series that Prince William was born into on June 21, 1982 @ 30Gem (or 00Can); also occurred on July 1, 2000 @ 10Can between US natal Jupiter and Sun; next occurrence: 2018 @ 21Can, then in 2036 when the Series ends @ 29Leo.


*Isaac Newton January 4, 1643 (he was a mere whippersnapper of 4 when Jeremiah Horrocks observed Venus Transit 1639!) 1:38 am LMT (rectified) Woolsthorpe, England; Sun 13Cap41, Moon 2Can28, Venus 27AQ12.

A Rare Transit of Venus June 5-6, 2012 (video)

The following video was nabbed from the Transit of Venus website where you'll find more information, plus, Transit of Venus apps concerning this rare cosmic event placed on our calendars by The Cosmos for June 5 or 6, 2012, depending on your viewing location:

You'll remember the last Venus Transit (aka, an Occultation of the Sun) which occurred during the G-8 Summit held June 8-10, 2004 when world leaders huddled together on Sea Island, Georgia in a stuptifying frenzy of self-importance and sheer chest-baring as they strolled upon the beach, primed for a goofy looking photo-op.

Here's one photo of the boys from 2004 though their shirts aren't open as in the one I guffawed over back in 2004--maybe that one got mysteriously scrubbed from the internet for it was really quite cheesy. Now it's old times come again as Vladimir Putin rejoins The Club (as if he ever left!)

Plus, the 2004 G-8 meeting was held a mere three days after the passing of Ronald Reagan from this mortal coil but we may suppose that The Gipper would have wanted his globalist co-conspirators to carry on with world domination plans. And just look how far they've advanced!

Mar 27 2012: a rapid launch of 5 rockets = ATREX

In case you were up early this morning and wondering what in the world...

Space Weather News for March 27, 2012

This morning before sunrise, sky watchers along the eastern seaboard of the United States witnessed an amazing sky show created by the rapid-fire launch of five rockets from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility. It was an experiment named "ATREX" to study turbulent winds in the transition zone between Earth's atmosphere and space.

Eye-witness accounts and photos of the display are featured on today's edition of SpaceWeather News.
