Social Security, Saturn, and the 118th Congress

by Jude Cowell

With the US House of Representatives now controlled by far-righters in the Republican Party, it's beyond time to consider the Astrology of the social safety net that millions of Americans depend upon (inner chart; SS 1935) surrounded by the January 3, 2023 Horoscope of the 118th Congress - specifically the House members who act as saboteurs of our safety and peace of mind.

As you can see, attacks and interference issue from a variety of sources and actors (planets) - there's even a generational clash between Pluto opposing Pluto, an ongoing condition that has been in force for some time - and more significant due to America's first-ever Pluto Return. And of course, the 'clash of ideologies' and 'persecutions' of Neptune in shady, contagious Pisces opposing US 1776 Neptune in fact-based Virgo, the victim-savior axis, has brought its own difficulties and disasters.

So through wealthy hoarder Pluto ('the assassin') we find that the opposition describes circumstances as a Cancer (ruler Moon: the people's needs, security) affair challenged by Capricorn (ruler Saturn: business, investment, government, law), and we see this starkly playing out (penned in the center of the bi-wheel) against the American public with 2023 Saturn @22AQ41 conjunct 1935 Moon with all the suffering, worry, and loss this transit can bring to the struggling have-nots and the working class in particular. In fact, Saturn-opposing-Moon is a shorthand way to symbolically identify conditions in our society if the fabric of the US social safety net programs - inadequate as they may be - breaks down and is turned into a massive heist perpetrated by the monied classes of Wall Street and their handmaidens in Washington DC. And besides those vulture capitalists, Put*n may be waiting for his pay-off along with other foreign governments.

Yet for years the American people have known such conditions have been threatened because Republicans have promoted cuts and worse for decades with Social Security benefits and Medicare under their knives of austerity on behalf of wealthy donors such as Wall Street gentry and corporatists who are desperate to steal more billions from the American people.

The Love of Money Is the Root of All Evil

Obviously, selfishness, greed, and causing loss and harm to others are their motivations. And this is part of a depopulation agenda, in case you've yet to notice, as a high-stakes tug-of-war for ultimate control and power (Pluto) plays out over our heads (through a Cancer vs Capricorn lens). That Pluto rules the Criminal Underworld is a major factor and we can expect to see even more destructive criminal activity once transit Uranus reaches the Neptune-Pluto Conjunction (@7-9 Gemini in 1891/92 = robber barons) in 2027.

Now as you see above, planetary contacts from 2023 planets to those of 1935 such as 2023 Uranus (disruptive anarchists, zealots, and fanatics) opposes Social Security's money planet Jupiter @15Sco06 in 1935. This suggests that changes (which may come suddenly with erratic Uranus - or not at all if President Biden and congressional Democrats manage to stop the onslaught!) can have unpredictable and/or unexpected results or consequences. Not that devil-take-the-hindmost political saboteurs of America care about details.

One thing I must wonder about is this: if Republicans and their enablers have their way against FDR's very popular New Deal programs that benefit the American people, who do corporatists expect will have money enough to buy their products and services if seniors and others are reduced to penury? Well, maybe it's about the culling of the herd, no matter what. You know, the old 'success at any cost' as long as it's someone else's loss.

So please enlarge or print the image for easier reading if you wish.

Because there are several other contacts worth considering for a fuller picture of the trouble we're in, and do note that Social Security's Saturn, karmic planet of old age, responsibility, and accountability but also of loss, restriction, debt, and deprivation, will return to natal position (8Pis03) on February 14, 2024, the year of the next US Presidential Election and just prior to the upcoming Great American Eclipse in the 8 North Saros Series when dreams and visions will be prominent, and the 8 North eclipse's path of totality will cut a swath from Southwest to Northeast.

Another factor worthy of concern is that dry Saturn @8Pisces conjuncts US 1776 Ceres (grains, food supplies, democracy) and the 1776 Pluto-Chiron midpoint, so if there are any doubts about who's behind the dearth and austerity - it's American Plutocrats in league with Global Plutocrats who want it all.

But what they don't want is democracy.

DC Horoscope: The Burning of Washington DC 1814

January 8, 2021: Is History Doing Its Rhyming Thing Again?

After the storming of the US Capitol Building and Congress on January 6, 2021, it seems that some historical elements are repeating. This time the attack was instigated by the man currently in the role of POTUS and his MAGA shock troops carried out his plan, as Trump supporters participated and 'simply walked right in' to the Capitol Building, some looting offices and getting their proudly seditious mugs on video. At least one Confederate flag was recorded being proudly carried into the building while some officers of the Capitol Police force acted complicitly. Perhaps others cooperated as well.

Now as you know, the US Capitol Building has been assaulted and damaged before when British troops Burned Washington DC in 1814 during the War of 1812 in retaliation for similar American actions in Canada. Besides the Capitol Building, the to-burn list of Major General Robert Ross and his arsonists included the White House (then the 'Presidential Mansion'), the Navy Yard where warships were under construction, plus, other government and military buildings. The British had defeated our American soldiers at the Battle of Bladensburg earlier that day (at Bladensburg, MD 8.6 miles northeast of DC) and felt assured of continued success especially after their resounding defeat of Napoleon that year. For a variety of reasons, the City was ill-prepared for the breach as British troops 'simply marched right in' and burned our nation's capital. However, the damage to the City was repaired, the burning's existential effects didn't last, the US government continued meeting (in the spared Patent Building), and a Peace Treaty between America and Britain was declared four months later on December 18, 1814.

So for a Theme through History how about: Britain's "economic royalists" send troops in 1814 to attack Washington DC including the US Capitol Building, monarchist Trump and his "economic royalists" donors and corporatists attack America in 2021, and in between: the 1933 Fascist Plot Against America instigated by wealthy corporatists of the J.P. Morgan kind, the "economic royalists" of their day, and intended to destroy the New Deal programs and Presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, a compaign that continues to this day.

For more details here's a four-minute video on The Burning of Washington DC 1814. And for the astro-curious, below is the August 24, 1814 Horoscope of the Burning of Washington DC set for 6:00 pm LMT. You'll note Aquarius rising, plus, 12th house chart-ruler Saturn Rx @25Cap06 in the degree area of the Zodiac where so many cosmic activities (including transit Pluto in governmental Capricorn) have been playing out during the term of Herr Trump and where US Inauguration Midheaven clocks in at noon (est) on January 20, 2021, the day when the explosive, hot-headed Mars-Uranus Conjunction perfects (3:38 pm est @6Tau44) and Trump's "proud boys" and other violent militia groups and individuals have threatened to return to DC. My darkest suspicion is that arson may again be a factor and I pray that the Inaugural ceremony for Joe Biden, and the rest of the City, are adequately protected and defended - this time around:

Sen Bernie Sanders spotlights Reality in fiery Senate speech - video

There are many clips of Independent Senator Bernie Sanders, speeches or interviews, through which we hear the echo of his fiery Aries Moon. The video below is one such for those with 13 minutes 5 seconds to listen. Passionate emotions are undisguised as the traditional translation of Moon in Aries loudly announces its energies via the senator and expresses that "I AM the People" a great quality to possess for those working in Politics (useful elsewhere as well). Better for a server sort of person which is the adult personality or essence (Virgo Sun) of Bernie Sanders, a servant of the people and a spokesman for the Collective.

Soon the upcoming Solar Eclipse, a cosmic blink, aka, a Uranian 'wild card' of the Universe, will express themes of seeing a situation, event, and/or person for what it/he/she really is rather than what you thought; a good time for tackling the truth. (Paraphrasing Predictive Astrology, B. Grady.) Perhaps with these themes as a background, retrospectives on the life and decisions of the recently departed Justice Antonin Scalia will benefit from these more sober contemplative frequencies influencing the Collective around and during the eclipse season. For even moderation should be moderated. But a fiery Aries Moon feeling fed up with systemic corruption to the core?!

So, good news, you chronically victimized American public! Alan 'Epiphany' Greenspan belatedly realized his 'ideology is flawed'!! It's an ideology that neglects others in that Ayn-Rand-ish kind of way, harboring a deeply selfish greed that purports to lift The Individual to godlike status (it pretends) and in the process, harms and exploits the masses. Yes, Mr. Greenspin and those of his ilk were and are "out of touch with the lives of the American people" by choice--in other words, they are out of touch with the stark reality of the Common Man that they helped engineer yet they do not have to share in the consequences of their actions (yet)! Powerful gold-hoarder Pluto now about midway through Saturn-ruled Capricorn is determined on that score ('the dictator')...a main feature of their global agenda is self-protection (for themselves, not for us.) One must suppose that they always have escape pods ready.

Well, dear reader, these sentiments are hereby very clumsily expressed and so I ask you to please allow Senator Sanders to remark upon the anti-societal behavior of the greedy 'economic royalists' (as FDR called them, although technically he was one of them yet at the least he pretended to have a conscience) while February 2016's transit Jupiter and the undulating Head of the Dragon (Moon's North Node) dance around together, sometimes in tandem (as seen from Earth). Now Jupiter will be turning Direct @13Virgo and moving forward to tango (or tangle!) with the Moon's Nodal axis once again before majestically passing onward toward Venus-ruled Libra, sign of the Scales of Justice. Libra is the sign where expansive Jupiter will join forces a while with America's natal Saturn @14Libra48 (on July 4, 1776) and we may expect that a restriction or burden will be partially lifted. This may relate to President Obama's constitutionally mandated to nominate someone for the Supreme Court. However, truth and justice will be requirements if the resulting benefits are to last and we know how seriously challenged the majority of American politicians are on that score.

Senator Bernie Sanders on the Senate floor circa 2012 if memory serves.
