Easter Sunrise 2020 Washington DC: Sun Trine Moon!

Easter April 12, 2020 Sunrise: He Is Risen! is how my Easter posts have always begun in celebration of the Good News for those who believe (as do I). Unfortunately, this post has Trumpism drizzled all over it due to current conditions of the Coronavirus contagion so ably encouraged by contagious Neptune floating through its own shady, frail sign of Pisces and with handmaidens harsh Saturn-Pluto and infectious Mars telling their own turbulent tales. For as you know, Neptune's urge-to-merge desires are being fulfilled all too well these days on a cellular level as people across the globe suffer and pass away, their demises often egged on by too-little-too-late medical care which is stymied, mishandled, or denied by politicians and their enablers of an anti-societal mindset, animated by the spirit of destruction that now roams the Earth almost completely unchecked. As foretold.

Conditions will get worse and stats will increase 'they say', and this we intuit without being told from the screens of our TVs and devices where 'talking heads' follow their scripts of doom, jobs are lost, and financial markets crash around greedy ears. Remember that year 2020 is forever imprinted by its first eclipse--a Lunar Eclipse at critical degree conjunct a certain star.

Meanwhile, shocking Uranus is busy lurching through earthy Taurus, a money sign of growth and development, as earth changes continue to alarm and harm, environmental damage and danger distress us, and new finance is sought from unusual sources. How obvious is it that Gaia, our Mother Earth, is upset and who can blame her? Do you know that April 22, 2020 is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day?

Now let's focus on the Cosmic Weather of Easter Sunday 2020 through a common-good yet political-astrological lens by considering the day's horoscope for clues. My apology that no horoscope image can appear here since ink cartridges are empty and a long waiting period for delivery means fresh cartridges will arrive whenever they manage to arrive. I'd be happy to hand-draw a chart for you but my printer won't allow me to skip print and select 'scan'! Therefore, this post will not consider the April 12th horoscope as fully as I'd prefer.

April 12, 2020 Sunrise at 6:39:40 am EDT over Washington DC with Sun rising at 22Aries and Moon @22Sagittarius in a Fire trine, karmic because the luminaries are in the same 22nd degree. Happily, there's Good News for a Sun-Moon trine suggests strong recuperative powers, stamina, and a sense of optimism - may they extend for everyone across the globe! Sabian Symbols for the rounded-up degrees of the Sun and Moon add information to our clues: "23Aries": "A Woman in Pastel Colors Carrying a Heavy and Valuable But Veiled Load" and "23Sag": "Immigrants Entering a New Country." Yes, Covid-19 restrictions have brought new conditions in and transformation of America and elsewhere, it's true.

Yet with the astrological Moon associated with the physical body and health, how curious that April 12, 2020 is a day of a monthly Trump Lunar Return so it's interesting that Trump has linked the day to his idea of an early recovery and "time to get back to work" after dire government commands to "shelter in place" and stay home from work if you're symptomatic, have tested positive for Covid-19, or are simply contagious with whatever. Apparently his mind has been changed to a later date but I wonder if his eagerness is misplaced optimism, foolhardiness, or a political tactic against his opponents in a desperate attempt to "win" by hook or crook in November? Maybe all of the above. After all, transit Neptune, planet of fantasy, deception, and fraud, continues moving into an exact square with Trump's natal Sun-Moon opposition suggesting that he's the wrong person to go to when realism is needed due to illusions, deceptions, misunderstandings, mistakes, easy upsets, and/or eroding relationships. In a nutshell, unreliability.

Of course, no one needs Astrology to tell them any of this for we know his fantastical history of lies, deceit, and misconceptions. Yet in spite of Donald Trump, Easter 2020 brings comfort to the afflicted via the Sun-Moon trine for those who care to receive the gift!

Comic Weather of Easter 2020

Now as you know, Sun Aries-Moon Sagittarius is a double Fire combo of conscious + unconscious energies with embers that fly high into the stratosphere like a roaring bonfire when things are going its way. But once reality steps in, the 'black dog of depression' hits hard. Historically, Winston Churchill and Mark Twain (aka, Samuel Clemons) were born under double Fire Sun-Moon blends and are known to have suffered heavy depression and dark pessimism when times were tough.

So although we are facing more dark days ahead, my fervent hope this Easter Morning is that tough times will ease soon, relief will come to the afflicted, responsibilities will be faced and shouldered with courage, and we will look up with confidence in the knowledge that what's been sown by those who worship death will be exactly what they reap--for all will be made right in the end.

Trump Guts National Forrest Protections! - Thom Hartmann (w/ Uranus in Taurus)

Published August 29, 2019, here's a segment from The Thom Hartmann Program:


Quirky Maverick Uranus now in Earthy Taurus

Saboteur-in-chief Trump and those of his ilk continue to attack, pillage, and damage the environment as they make the plundering of America's natural resources easier for industry corporatists (his backers) to grab, run, deregulate protections and injure the health of the American people. Astrologically this seems apt while Trump's guiding planet Uranus careens through earthy Taurus, money sign of environmentalism, growth, greenery, possessions, pragmatism, and intolerance. Financial disruption is now predicted by economists and others and an economic recession seems to be forming with Uranus in Venus-ruled Taurus and Saturn in its own sign of Capricorn (never a good sign for markets). So under the heavy influence of the titanic Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of January 12, 2020, conditions of compression and a new order will become more and more apparent. Or perhaps I should say, will be forced upon society via the abuse and misuse of power (Pluto) and control (Saturn) even more than before. For most people, removing Trump from office would be satisfying and could help matters yet our problems would remain awaiting solutions.

Now looking at Trump (if we must), that fellow I call Spanky, we know that the influences of Trump's 2019 Solar Return Horoscope ('SR') are active for one year until his birthday in 2020. So if you wish, check out the chart where you'll find 'criminal elements' (Jupiter-Pluto-MC) and a first house Uranus Rx in Taurus suggesting unpredictable, disruptive events, even shocks. Plus, his SR 2019 Uranus is apex of a midpoint picture with Sun (ego; personality; essence; the goal) and Neptune (deception, fraud, delusion, propaganda, undermining, sabotage) so that channeled through Trump we have potentials for:

'Upsets caused by ignoring reality; adjustment of old dreams to fit newly developing situations; indifference to life or others while inwardly escaping' (Munkasey). We should add that budget deficits, an inflated treasury, drug problems (Trump's too?), a leader's impractical schemes, and/or unkept promises are a few of the potentials of the Sun-Neptune pair.

In closing here's my April 23, 2018's post Uranus to Taurus: "Nature's Revolution" showing all three Uranus to 00Tau00 horoscopes, the third and last of which occurred this year on March 6, 2019 just prior to the New Moon @15Pis47 conjunct Achernar, star of crisis at the end of the river and/or the risk of rapid endings. So of course, we know that natural disasters cannot be ruled out. And no, I don't like typing and fussing about such dire topics but I do it for the sake of America and for you so that you don't have to.

And please note that your kind Shares are always appreciated! jc

Uranus to Taurus = "Nature's Revolution"

Uranus: Revolution, Rebellion; Taurus: Growth, Greenery, Value, Preservation, the Environment

'1 Taurus' = "A Clear Mountain Stream." '2 Taurus' = "An Electrical Storm."

Note that the great Nikola Tesla was born with an unaspected Uranus in Taurus giving him flashes of genius and sparks of intuition--and a way with electricity never before or since seen. His Uranus @24Tau56 will be conjoined on May 15, 2018 by the New Moon @24Tau36 which also happens to perfect upon Donald Trump's natal Midheaven and the Sun of the State of Israel--and the effects will seem like Uranian 'wild cards' since both New and Full Moons can often act much as eclipses--revealing, spotlighting, disrupting, and timing a change of direction for those affected by its rays.

Oil spill at Indian Point nuclear power plant in New York - video (w/ Eclipses)

When an American politician calls for a "full investigation" of an incident, event, or a crime (environmental or otherwise), We the People have learned that more often than not the probe is used as a cover-up or a whitewash no matter how disturbing or criminal the act.

Yes, oily Neptune in its own sign of murky, watery Pisces is tragically busy these days as we see with Hurricane Matthew churning up the Florida and Georgia coasts on its way North.

Now this is the sort of event and "full investigation" that can really benefit from our current Solar Eclipse Series, the 19 North, which manifested in earth sign Virgo on September 1, 2016 with themes of: realism, coming down to earth, becoming aware of an old situation and seeing it for what it really is rather than what we thought it was. Down to earth sounds environmental enough and truth is what should be revealed during a "full investigation" along with the accountability and responsibility that reality-based Saturn demands from the establishment vs the culprits.

Saturnian Realism or Neptunian Deception?

Two weeks after the September Solar Eclipse manifested, its cosmic mate, a Lunar Eclipse occurred in Pisces, sign of the oceanic realms of king Neptune. If you wish, follow the link, above, for brief notes on the Solar and Lunar Eclipses of September 2016 with transit Neptune opposing the Solar Eclipse, a condition which seems to be interfering with the realism and truth that the 19 North Solar Eclipse promises since deceptive (or inspirational) Neptune also rules disguises, masks, cover-ups, and leaks. Even so, I for one will be waiting to hear honest revelations via the "full investigation" of the Indian Point nuclear power plant oil 'spill' which threatens the Hudson River and beyond.

Also note that the current manifestation of 19 North is the Pre-Natal Eclipse of Election 2016 and Inauguration 2017--two more events that could greatly benefit from realism, truth, and seeing things (and campaigning candidates) for what they really are, whether racists or neocons. The tragedy is, whoever wins the 2016 Election will have to become a globalist once they enter the Venusian Oval Office...if they weren't one before.

Most U.S. Cities Have Dangerous Lead Levels In Water - video

As first reported in The Guardian on January 22, 2016 and picked up by Raw Story, Documents reveal agencies across the US distort tests to downplay lead content of water, further evidence of the constant poisoning of the American people via water, food, air, beauty and other products, plus our fracked, drilled, mined, and contaminated environment. Of course, high-powered chemical and drug corporations ruin other populations' health and environments, too, but at the moment, we're talking America:

Here is Farron Cousins reporting for Ring of Fire Radio:

Government Requesting DNA From "Private" Databases - #NewWorldNextWeek - clip

October 23, 2015: a range of topics are covered in the following Corbett Report-Media Monarchy discussion including: medical and recreational marijuana and President Obama's recent visit to West Virginia, government requests for DNA files of ancestry dot com and 123 dot com customers for a DNA database, and the lawsuit against DuPont Chemical concerning river contamination with PFOA, the cancer-causing agent in Teflon which apparently is no longer used in the US but is found in every American's bloodstream:


Astrologically we look to poisonous Neptune now floating through its own sign of oceanic Pisces as an influence on above topics involving chemicals, toxins, water, drugs, contagion and infections (health), and the urge to merge and find out info on one's past generations via cells, heredity, and DNA. Of course, DuPont's shady, fraudulent behavior is part of the Neptunian picture along with various states of paranoia which are often justified when corporations are involved..

Another Neptunian condition is that in March 2010 President Obama signed the ACA ('Obamacare') with fraudulent, networking, web-casting, veil-throwing Neptune Conjunct US natal Moon (We the People) and one of my early concerns was that everyone's DNAwould thereby be made available to and owned by the US government. It seems that my paranoia about that concern has become a reality.

August 2015: EPA Toxic Mining Sludge Spill video, plus EPA Astro-Notes

And then this happened:

Under toxic threat, the Navaho Nation has taken emergency action against the August 5, 2015 accidental release of heavy metal sludge as the Gold King Mine near Silverton, Colorado as it was being 'cleaned up' by the EPA--or, apparently, by contractors hired by the EPA. Perhaps we can thank the movement to privatize government agencies for that.

The King Gold Mine toxic catastrophe will create havoc for several years as the mustard yellow plume flows south toward the Grand Canyon and beyond. Astrologically the toxic release may be identified in part by the 20-year Jupiter-Saturn cycle. When Richard Nixon created the Environmental Protection Agency by Executive Order 1102 and the EPA began operating on December 2, 1970, Jupiter (expansion, breaking through boundaries) and Saturn (restriction, also the Earth, boundaries, and soil) had conjoined last on February 19, 1961 @25Cap12--Capricorn, an Earth sign ruled by Saturn, planet of government, law, and business.

So by December 2, 1970, the two societal planets with their checks and balances Yin-Yang qualities were in process of an off-again-on-again phase of opposition with Jupiter @21Scorpio and Saturn @17Taurus, another Earth sign of Environmentalism, conservation, and preservation.

As for the August 5, 2015 toxic spill, Jupiter and Saturn are in process of a square phase issuing from their Great Conjunction of May 28, 2000 @23Taurus and there's that environmentally aware Taurus again. Squares are aspects of blockage and obstacles but unfortunately, the blockage of soil was removed. Yet another aspect operative on August 5th is Mars in late Cancer squaring its position in 1970 (late Libra) which indicates males (Mars) acting impulsively and with a caution to beware large mechanical equipment--which is what workers were up to as they failed to realize the consequences of their machinery disturbing loose soil which released a heavy metal brew of arsenic, lead, copper, zinc, and more from the King Gold Mine clean-up site.

And with karmic Saturn again to transit the early degrees of Sagittarius, we may consider its conjunction with 1970 Neptune @00Sag58, the grim reality transit when it's easy to misinterpret what one is supposed to be responsible for and there is failure to fully comprehend the reality of a situation which describes the initial reaction of the EPA as the amount of toxins released was underestimated to area residents and the public (as is typical in such disasters).

Then like a computer program running underneath it all, we feel the effects of the planet of toxins, poisons, contamination, and water, Neptune, floating through its own sign of Pisces, sign of fish, bodies of water, and lack of clarity--and the EPA not letting out the news of the catastrophe to area residents until Thursday (Aug 6), a full day after the disastrous event.

You may wish to read President Nixon's message to Congress dated July 9, 1970: Reorganization Plan No. 3 which includes information on the protective mission of the EPA. But if it seems odd that a Republican president would create a regulatory agency like the EPA (which was actually a glopping together of agencies) try Myth: Nixon Created the EPA to Help the Environment which seems more in character with the Richard Nixon who played president when yours truly was a resident of Washington DC.

Celente on US econo-trends 2012 (video) w some Astrology 11.30.11

November 29, 2011: economist Gerald Celente discusses ugly topics such as MF Global, John Corzine, 'missing' money, looted pension funds, and what's coming down the *pike for the US economy in 2012.

Part 1 of 2

"The Goldman-Sachs Gang, the Merrill-Lynch Mob, and the Morgan-Stanley Marauders" get no respect from Mr. Celente, an attitude with which I totally agree. "The whole system is collapsing--the money's not there," he asserts. Hence a government cover-up continues with martial law on its way wherever necessary--as if law abiding, dissenting Americans are the problem instead of the outlaws in Washington, on Wall Street, and in capitals the world over!

Part 2 of 2


The current looted/heisted financial condition of America is not a 'R v D' issue at all but is part of a long process mounted by usurpers of a mafia-esque, global domination persuasion and planned many years ago by people like Albert *Pike.

In Mundane Astrology, I often use asteroid Cupido to represent The Syndicate, The Family, Corporatism. Today Cupido clocks in @ 00Vir25, conjunct a Royal Star of Persia, Regulus (success if revenge is avoided), and parallel transiting Mars 9Vir11 (ugh--George Bush's natal Mars.)

The Jupiter-Neptune pair of speculators, fraudsters, spendthrifts, wastrels, and grand schemers has again met up with tr Uranus, the radical reformer and anarchist, and their midpoint picture is once again in force after a brief respite--as always, any, all, or none may apply to an economic condition and the criminal embezzlers near you:

Jupiter/Neptune = Uranus: imagination v reality; coming down to earth with a bump (or a crash--jc); suddenly recognition of a difficult situation; disruptive events that have no real explanation (see Celente video above! jc); decisions based on odd or unusual theories about the effects of the supernatural; unaccustomed confusion. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Today, as the Moon sails through Aquarius, sign of We The People's natal Moon (July 4, 1776), our day is suffused with the socially concerned, idealistic vibes of Sun Sag-Moon AQ, a combination of energies shared natally by several famous people including: Andrew Carnegie, Caroline Kennedy, John Kennedy Jr, Richard Leakey, Louisa May Alcott, Phillip K. Dick, Woody Allen, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Margaret Mead. Here are two quotes from two of them which may relate to our current topic on many levels:

"The machine threatens all achievement."

-R. M. Rilke

"As a people we have developed a lifestyle that is draining the earth of its priceless and irreplaceable resources without regard for the future of our children and people all around the world."

-Margaret Mead

How sad in 2011, as we face the watershed year of 2012, to know all too well by decades of experience just how correct they both were in their assertions.

As for New World Order instigator Albert *Pike--still revered by some:

(He) "designed a plan for world conquest and wrote of it in a letter to Mazzini dated August 15, 1871. He said three future world wars would prepare the world for the New World Order."

Read more here as we see their illuminized plans for a Third World War moving ahead bwo the Pentagon.

Furthermore, Mazzini's letter includes a description of where we are now:

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the 'agentur' of the 'Illuminati' between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam and political Zionism mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion."

(My caps and italics.)

Just as Osama bin Laden hoped! 'Thanks' Bush-Cheney and Obama for furthering Islamic radicals' plan for America's collapse. Well, I have mentioned here many times the Sabian Symbol for 9/11's Moon (We the People): '28Gemini' = BANKRUPTCY.

Read more on Pike's letter to Mazzini here which includes analysis of both arch conspirators.

So who was playing the role of US president when the Illuminati planets, Uranus and Neptune met up in Great Conjunction three times through 1993 thus beginning the modern cycle of conspiracy? Bill Clinton, of course! Will I ever tire of typing the Sabian Symbol for their conjunction of collusion and control?

Apparently not. Because it describes perfectly current conditions such as riot police actions against the peaceful demonstrators of Occupy Wall Street and all other rights movements around the globe.

Uranus-Neptune '18 Capricorn' = "The Union Jack Flies from a British Warship" which Marc Edmund Jones gives as SUPERVISION, and Dane Ruhyar as POLITICAL POWER.

positive expression: the self's ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches (such as the Mark of the Beast? jc);

negative (unconscious/shadow side--jc): smug or strong-armed paternalism.

Britain controls US politics bwo the Bank of England, a Rothschild endeavor so in my opinion, the British government has much to answer for on Judgment Day for it may be described as America's shadow government (Saturn/Neptune = 'leaders deceive about the exercise of control; a leader capitulates'--Munkasey.)

Not to let the Federal Reserve Bank of New York off the hook but you notice that the UK government is not a member of the European Union--perhaps because it's more special than many people realize.

Well, the timing must not be quite right for total global financial collapse with
stocks rallying today as six central banks move to ease the EU financial crisis so we know that someone is making money, don't we?

Of course, there may be another explanation for why central banks acted now--did a large European bank come close to failing last night?

A la the Bible, maybe it's finally time for Steve Keen's idea of declaring a
debt jubilee
to offset the trillions of dollars the central banks stole from the people--and jubilee into oblivion the House of Rothschild's ill-gained profits!

Nixon Watergate text now public w '18 1/2 mins' still veiled

Update 11.12.11: if Richard Nixon is of interest you may wish to read Robert Parry's article Nixon's Darkest Secret. Original post begins here:

Visit the Nixon Library website for links to today's release of the text of Nixon's Grand Jury testimony on the Watergate break-in and cover-up including the "by accident" erasure of 18 1/2 minutes of White House tape by Nixon's secretary Rose Mary Woods.

Nixon testified that when he found out it was 18 1/2 minutes gone 'missing' instead of only 4 minutes (4 minutes' worth of erasure was apparently deemed okay by his nibs) he "--practically blew my stack."

Is that like being almost practically pregnant? Then it's impossible. My guess is that Dick "practically blew his stack" when he found out what the 18 1/2 minutes contained and how damaging it would be--worth the sass of erasing it--then he erupted with volcanic anger (as control freaks tend to do) until the conversations were erased as per his shouted instructions, or upon orders he received from his illuminized bosses. Or was he worried about what they would say and do if the full tapes were heard? Perhaps global syndicate bosses are implicated for their control of his administration!

But then I lived in DC during Nixon's tenure so I'm probably quite biased against Tricky Dick--but I'm also biased against the forces that may have set Nixon up and knocked him off his presidential perch of power. Oh well, who knows? Henry Kissinger knows who they are and why Nixon had to go. He was too unstable and paranoid for them to direct, probably.

Here's the complicit Washington Post's article on Nixon's farewell announcement on the eve of his resignation from office. His 10th house Saturn was not amused by his years of dissing Saturn's demands for honesty and accountability in life--and horrifically, the traditional potential of a 10th-house Saturn's 'fall from grace' ensued.

America's natal horoscope (Sibly version, July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) also has a 10th house Saturn with a particular mission which relates to its exaltation is Libra, sign of the Scales of Balance and 'Blind' Justice. There is our basic and fatal flaw--our infiltrated legal system and corruption of Trial By Jury (habeas corpus.)

Funny, but I've busy blogging and had no idea that Nixon's testimony would finally be released today--under the rays of our current Solar Eclipse from July 1, 2011 @ 9Can12 (horoscope shown) with Mercury, ruler of testimony, texts, news, and re-leases (Mercury's Rx Station occurs on Nov 24, 2011) of info--and with an eclipse--uncovering secrets and secreted documents such as these.

As previously noted, 9Can12 falls snugly between US natal Jupiter (6Can) and Sun (14Can) with Sun representing The President (leader) in Mundane Astrology (for American horoscopes.)

And everyone knows that the Moon-ruled sign of Cancer is extremely self-protective like a shell on a Crab! It is also one of the signs most associated with America's natal chart (July 4, 1776), the others being Capricorn (Pluto Rx), Gemini (Uranus and Mars), Virgo (Neptune), and Libra (Saturn exalted there.)

But the newly revealed Nixon isn't very forthcoming as to what was said during those particular 18 1/2 minutes so don't get too excited unless perhaps you have a chance to look at a horoscope of one of the pivotal days, June 20, 1972, and make conjectures based on the Astrology of it. Other dates, or periods of time, are mentioned on the site so why not get out your trusty Richard Nixon natal chart if you're interested in the details of his transits and progressions during a tremendously stressful period in his life--and, by extension, in the life of our nation through the office of the president and his flawed leadership of spying and cover-ups.

Here's my astro-flavored post published in 2009 to mark the 33rd anniversary of Nixon's resignation. A link to the resignation letter he wrote to Kissinger is handily included.

So today's belated revelation of Nixon's Watergate testimony may also fall a bit *early yet still underneath the brightened purview of an upcoming Solar Eclipse since its date nears rapidly: November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37 which affects the 'Super Committee' (aka, 'Super Congress') report due on November 23, 2011...or else Draco the Dragon has his nasty way with us--aka, the global central bankers like the Houses of Rothschild, Rockefeller, and Morgan. (See quote and article link at post's end.)

Plus, we have the December 10, 2011 Lunar Eclipse in Gemini, sign of young people such as are marching in the Occupy Wall Street movement with its march to Washington DC set to arrive in The District on November 23, 2011--in time for the 'Super Committee' recommendations of austerity.

Mars of Protest, Mars of Action

For the Lunar Eclipse of December 10, 2011, Mars in Virgo (military and police forces w Virgo's natural 6th house connotation, plus, Mars = males; also, protesters and marchers) squares the December Lunar Eclipse and my fretful expectation is that more confrontations are on the OWS v Riot Police menu.

And unless winter arrangements are made soon to extend or truncate the movement in order to protect demonstrators until warmer, safer weather breaks in favor of outside campers, it's difficult to see how victorious frozen fingers and toes can be. Perhaps a solution may be found.

Yes, the Obama White House announced today that it's ordering a new environmental impact report on the aquifer-threatening XL Pipeline construction across America from Canada to the Gulf, a tempest rife with crony capitalism alliances no matter the cost to We The People. Yet you know that Mr. Obama may only be kicking a very politically explosive can down the road past the 2012 election, don't you?

Obama's apparent capitulation on the forcing through of the XL Pipeline may hide a secret handshake on a devilish deal that intends to get its high-handed, oily way in the end because these reptile-brainers, so determined to boss everyone around, are nothing if not persistent and crazed.

Especially when financial vultures are sniffing huge profits in the air.

Democracy works when rulers fear The People!


*Eclipses may flavor or describe events two weeks or more prior to their actual manifestation. The July 11, 2011 Solar Eclipse was the initial eclipse in a brand new Saros Series and as such, predicting its influence has been exciting since eclipses often operate in their traditional role as "wild cards of the Universe" for they contain a definite Uranian vibe of 'expect the unexpected'. jc

My personal opinion:

People in government who can do nothing in office but undermine the functions of government don't deserve to be in government and shall be removed.

--Jude Cowell, author Stars Over Washington


The genesis of the current and phasal global financial meltdown 2011/2012...

Amsel (Amschel) Bauer Mayer Rothschild, 1838:

"Let me issue and control a Nation's money and I care not who makes its laws".

Letter written by the Rothschilds of London to their New York agents to introduce their banking method into America:

"The few who can understand the system will be either so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, that great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that Capital derives from the system, will bear its burden without complaint and, perhaps, without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests."

"No opposition" to speak of--until 2011, you jackassian patriarch.

That last line from Old Amschel is what we hear in 2011 echoing in the "voting against their own best interests" charge leveled at Middle and Working Classes when--like political zombies and easily swayed dumbleheads--they vote Republican.

Which always turns out to be a real kick in the average guy's and gal's piggybank.

The Anti-Democratic "Super Congress" and "The Family"

Good news about the bad-news "Super Congress" which Washington politicians are attempting to pass off as a "Super Committee" to 'deal' with US debt problems by locating trillions of dollars in budget 'cuts'...

My friend Alex D'Atria has sent along an article concerning the topic which I highly recommend to you. Plus, her piece begins with an image of President Barack Obama's natal horoscope if you wish to snag yourself a peek at its Leonine glory.

This weekend I plan to publish an article on the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse (2Sag37) and you see by its date that it will closely relate to the deadline of *November 23, 2011 when the "Super Congress" is to make its recommendations which, if I understand the endeavor correctly, will go directly into the signing pipeline with no debate--aka, oversight--by a US Congress which has handed off its constitutional duties to 12 partisans, most of whom may be members or associates of Doug Coe's shadowy, quasi-religious, worldly-power-grabbing organization, The Family, aka, The Fellowship.

Their motto? "Jesus plus nothing"!!

Read or listen to Fresh Air's feature on this super-secret group of 'Jesus' freaks here. ('Jesus' freaks is my own description. Jesus in my Bible totally refused the worldly power that Satan offered Him while He was incarnated as a man on earth and I know that some people call 'God' an entity which is actually 'Satan' or 'Lucifer'.)

The Coming of November 2011

With the automatic 'trigger' set to fire against the dissolving American middle and working classes, this is an enterprise set up to fail, m'peops, but the failure will be primarily on the side of the American people, the sovereignty of our nation, and the health of our environment--and who knows what else the "Super Congress" will gut. A constitutional crisis is in the making as well.

Yes, secretive operatives have inherited a "Great Plan" for America which has been a long time in the making though I suspect its original intent has been somewhat diverted or hijacked by modern totalitarians of the last few decades who are motivated by a sinister lust for power and control--I say this even though our nation was founded as a corporation, yet after all, not all corporations are evil.

As for November, we must first navigate the US Saturn Return (#3 of 3 this time around) on August 28, 2011, plus, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11/01 attacks. And all leading us by the nose ring into Year 2012 when the collapse has been timed by idealistic Utopians (rebel Uranus now in Aries--Ebertin) and the fabled rebuilding upon ruins begins in earnest...


*It is generally agreed by way of empirical observation through the centuries that Solar Eclipse influences may begin earlier or later than the actual date upon which they manifest--some say up to two weeks in either direction, I would say possibly up to a month. This may also apply to Lunar Eclipses though they usually will relate on a more unconscious or inner level. South Node Solar Eclipses may as well through the SN's unconscious/the past/lunar connection and a Saturnian (SN) or restrictive vibe may be present. And of course, Saturn is a karmic planet indicating a
reaping of what was sown in the past which America must now surely do.

Plus, degrees of Total eclipses may stay sensitive for years or (who can say?)--forever such as with Nostradamus's predictive Mother of All Eclipses (August 11, 1999) with its rigid Fixed Grand Cross of planets which heralded the New Millennium of terror and alarm that politicians can't shut up about for selfish purposes of their own.

Living On Earth features Mayan Calendar Prophecy Dec 2012

June 18, 2011: Today's Living On Earth addresses several important topics which include:

Congress blocking FDA approval for transgenic fish (if only US lawmakers would stand firm against all 'Frankenfood', right?), the life and legacy of creative (Neptune) scientist (Saturn) George Washington Carver, space weather and a brand new cycle of sunspot activity, climate change creating more intense weather, and the science of wildfires.

Then it's new FDA regulations on sunscreen products, Henry David Thoreau's lessons for living a 'deliberate life', and more.

Also featured on today's LOE is an interview concerning the Mayan Calendar and (alleged) prophecy about the world 'ending' on either December 21, 2012 or December 23, 2012. Will Earth and Planet X collide for Winter Solstice 2012? Or will Earth simply putter to a stop? (My basic view is that only God will end this incarnation of planet Earth. However, difficult days and Earth Shifts are ahead. You may disagree as you wish!)

LOE: "The Mayan Long Count Calendar is nearing the end of its 5,125 year cycle. New age prophecies, based on the ancient calendar, warn the world will end when the cycle concludes in December 2012."

If that's the case, then perhaps you'll want to read, listen, or download the rest of Predicting the End of the World for a more reasoned voice on the topic than is usually shared online. Even the mainstream media promotes the Mayan Calendar obsession which is certainly a good reason to stay cool about it given its high propaganda value to our current fearmongers.

Some say that rumors of a 2012 doomsday are being spread so that people can make money which sounds plausible to me considering opportunistic human nature!

Yet a transcript of PBS's April 2008 broadcast Cracking the Maya Code is it becoming more timely by the minute?

Ancient Maya: Ace Mathematicians Who Studied the Celestial Sphere

Yes, they had the good sense to keep tabs on eclipses and other planetary activities. Then if you care for a little Astrology on the matter, try a previous post on Winter Solstice 2012 which shows the horoscope (set for the White House) and gives a few pertinent details including the 2012 Solstice's YOD pattern of crisis, crossroads, and/or a special task which points to planet Jupiter.

In the chart, you'll see that Jupiter Rx makes a transit to US natal Uranus 8Gem55, a time when freedom and independence issues come to the fore with results that are unpredictable especially in relation to finances, investment, fund-raising, travel, group activities, technology, and...Astrology.

Chris Hedges: The Collapse of Globalization; the Sacredness of Gaia

With Globalization, What's Not to Like?

by Jude Cowell

If you're familiar with the writings of Chris Hedges, you know that what he says must be well considered before flippantly ignoring it - except that the time has come to an end when we can afford to be apathetic about the future - environmental, social, and financial - of this little blue planet some call, Gaia.

Gaia has her own hypothesis, you know. The globalists know it. The black hearts have been ignoring her sacredness by abusing the planet we all share every night and day for several decades now and piling up their considerable fortunes with a bwa ha ha and a mean cackle. Why, old J. P. Morgan was there, he knows how it all went down.

Yes, I hear ya: t'was Morgan and the other Robber Barons of the 1880s/90s who really got the plundering of Earth's resources and treasures up and running in a large scale way (speculators in groups as signified by combos such as Jupiter/Neptune, Jupiter/Pluto, Sun/Pluto, Pluto/Chiron, etc...joining forces to get big jobs done in commanding ways.)

As a class, add to their riches the oil-gas-steel-railroad titans' ill-gained wealth from accustomed profits bwo the slave and opium trades in centuries past unto this day, and you've got people like W's Grandpa Prescott Bush, his cronies and cousins. Queen Elizabeth is allegedly a 'cousin' of George W, as you know. Actually, a cousinship is not surprising for it would be just like them to favor one another in behavior, if not by beakish nose or flinty gaze.

Mr. Hedges' article starts out by reminding me of my grousings here on SO'W concerning our present and direst need: to face and identify our demons (our, meaning we-the-people and anyone else who has grown weary of the lies, fraud, and corruption embedded within every social institution) in order to vanquish them. Though these days, I'd settle for neutralization of all the psychopaths running about, would you?

For now Politics wags us by the tail just as we were taught to expect like good little puppies and we murmur nary a peep in case the American tranquility might be disturbed. This is a hopeless plan for our side's sake considering the freedoms they've targeted to delete from our lives - in some cases, Life itself.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

Awareness and Concentration are secret keys and Timing remains all important toward our success at prying the global crime syndicate's fingers out of every pie and its lousy fat patootie out of our world's catbird seat.

And if you feel insulted by my last remark, then you must be a globalist. #

The Collapse of Globalization

By Chris Hedges

Until we awake from our collective self-delusion, until we carry out sustained acts of civil disobedience against the corporate state and sever ourselves from the liberal institutions that serve the corporate juggernaut--especially the Democratic Party--we will continue to be rocketed toward a global catastrophe.


PS: loud cicadas will be rising soon here in Northeast Georgia and several other states as well (click link for a list) for the next while or so. Boy, will they be disappointed with what we've done with the place these last 17 years.

Chomsky: Peak Oil, Climate Change, Tea Partisans (video)

For rational, realistic perspectives on Global Warming (aka, Climate Change) and Peak Oil, try this 20 minute 4 second video first broadcast on January 3, 2011 by The Nation magazine. For me, it's a birthday present I'm just now receiving! A Solar Eclipse for a birthday gift was nice, too. So far.

Anyway, Noam Chomsky, Greg Palast, and others offer reasoned views on the important matters at hand - which are closer than they appear in the rear view mirror. You know - the problems the public sector continually diverts the private public's attention from and toward a brighter if frothy spotlight. Closer investigation can mean accountability for perpetrators being levied and of course they do not want that.

When slick legal eagles inserted into settlements the paying out while "not admitting guilt" clause into our legal process of crime and punishment, they let the crooks off the hooks while a big, fat, PR campaign was mounted and designed to ensure that criminals survive to make money another day. Racketeering. Gangsterism...nothing is too low to go if it nets fortunes.

Real World Busy Around My Mars Return (now)

Yet obviously, my traditional rule must still apply: wherever Washington politicians say to, Look! always look in an opposite direction to see what they're really concentrating their devious energies upon. And reveal it if you know it.

Free Bradley Manning

Astrology describes, "The desire to harm or damage others without their being aware of it" which is a base instinct running rampant across the globe, expressing loudly in all populations. It's a spirit, the devouring spirit, like a wolf lying in wait for the unwary. And the wolf's allegiance is his own. No compassion for humankind there...


Blogging transmission nearing end...if you haven't, please watch the video presentation above. When Saturn conjoined US natal Neptune recently, it gave we-the-people the authority to ask those in control the proper, to-the-point questions, and not just the diverting ones meant to lead public opinion astray to tastier matters. In Business and Politics, question "reframing" is a biggie these days as they attempt to keep certain topics out of their public appearances and thus out of public consciousness - from photo op and presser to official interview.

Propaganda notwithstanding, it behooves us all to consider Peak Oil and Climate Change issues now for Gaia is fading fast. Gardens For Our Children? Protect Mode required to maintain civilization though some changes will be unavoidable. Adaptability is invaluable.

Here's the Raw Story from whence I originally found the above video though you may have seen it elsewhere.

Politics Ugly

Professor Chomsky mentions some interesting things about the Republican Party and the Tea Partisans who won Congress in Nov 2010, a maverick bunch of out-of-towners who'll find DC morphing them into hideous shapes well before institutionalized capitalism + statism = fascism is polished into our Founders' Ideal (Uranus in Gemini) by little erstwhile them.

Yes, Astrology and Alchemy work simultaneously in both directions but my money is on the heavy-as*ed party leadership in DC, that which bows to the global elite's over-arching agenda.

Those vipers we nurture too well.

Inspires me to take another look at America's Scorpio rising chart which is good for high finance concerns, spying agencies, other underworld considerations, and the handed-down-through-the-generations Scorpio the Eagle (Altair) visions enjoyed and acted upon by the high fliers of Washington DC. Quite the actor, President Barack Obama's natal Neptune 8Sco+ conjoins the US Scorpio Ascendant.

In spite of the universal karmic principle of reaping what was sown and all common sense, should America let the eagle and the drone soar some more?

Astrology of the Clean Air Act effective Dec 17, 1963

Since the Clean Air Act came into effect on December 17, 1963 levels of acid rain of the 70s and 80s were successfully limited and a few amendments have been made.

Yet today, as Living On Earth reports, acid rain has again become a problem but now it's mainly coming from different sources such as agricultural practices. (Click for LOE's interview text or audio.)

So what were our solar system's planetary actors up to when the Clean Air Act was first put into effect in 1963? And which Solar Eclipse Series did its implementation fall into?

Checking the chart for Dec 17, 1963 noon EST Capitol Building, we find the Moon in Capricorn (law, government, business) for the full 24-hour period, so let's begin with the sometimes opportunistic Sun Sag-Moon Cap blend which describes a social conscience on an enthusiastic quest for both meaning (Sag) and usefulness (Cap.)

This blend has two Images for Integration:

'In the year 2999, a courageous explorer goes on a quest for knowledge of the past which opens up for man a hopeful future on another planet...With patient skill a rock climber scales a seemingly impossible mountain peak.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzy Harvey.) living on another planet at the top of a secret agenda after using up the resources and defiling the Earth's environment beyond repair? If so, then we know who is primarily to blame: the resource plundering class whose genesis is marked by the Robber Baron era, the Great Conjunction of oily Neptune and plundering Pluto in the 1890s!

A new cycle for mankind began as Neptune and Pluto met 3 times: August 2, 1891 @ 8Gem38, Nov 5, 1891 @ 8Gem19, and April 30, 1892 @ 7Gem42; their Great Conjunction/s provide a natal chart for our Modern Era. These degrees in the Tropical zodiac are where transiting Midas and Pan linger now...Midas, the royal Gold-Hoarder, and Pan, the trickster and flute-player associated with the labyrinthine sign of Capricorn.

Interestingly, the 7 - 9 Gemini area of the zodiac coincides with America's natal Uranus 8Gem55 of 1776, the planet of science, progress, radical changes, revolution, disruption, genius, and/or awakening. So we may wish to consider the midpoint picture which formed with US n Uranus way back in the 1890s especially since for all intents and purposes, the picture remains in effect, for no Nep/Plu conjunction will appear on Earth's calendar any time soon.

Any, all, or none may apply to this topic or to others, and are subject to stimulation by transit and progression:

Neptune/Pluto = US n Uranus: adventurous, mystical, and supernatural experiences; peculiar discoveries; hypersensitivity; disruption to gain recognition; adventurous ego thrust; possibly aberrant behavior; impersonal attitudes about any destructive or antisocial activities (such as destruction of mountain tops for mining purposes? jc); use of unusual means to change reality; rebellion against artificial supports or pursuits; going to extremes with drugs. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey.)

Through excessive use, large amounts of drugs have ended up in the US water supply and has become a dire health issue as well, hasn't it?

Well, Noel Tyl says of Sun Sag-Moon Cap, "...the higher mind finds purpose and administrated outlet. There is a terrific sense of humor possible since the mind can apply its energy adroitly and effectively. The idealism gains the anchor necessary for effective communication."

On Dec 17, 1963, transiting Uranus 10Vir04 Rx and tr Pluto 14Vir14 Rx (Virgo, an Earth sign) were soon to have their own Great Conjunction/s in 1965/66. Both planets would go on to conjoin US natal Neptune 22Vir25, with Uranus to n Neptune increasing our need to fulfill ideals and spiritual inspirations (ex: "Be ye stewards of the earth" - Scripture - jc) as quirky Uranus upset the status quo of our nation's accustomed Neptunian yet practical ideals through actions of the Flower Power Generation, and the grass roots Power To The People movement. (Not that kind of grass. Well...maybe it helped a little.)

Later, tr Pluto to US n Neptune brought a period when political, economic, and physical power struggles surfaced and power became an illusion. Undetected forces of secret hand Pluto slowly eroded national power which may in part describe the progressively 'toothless' enforcement of the Clean Air Act and other legislation and movements of the time (Civil Rights Act, Vietnam War protests, etc.)

The Clean Air Act of 1963 falls into the 1 North Solar Eclipse Series which manifested on July 20, 1963 @ '1Sag', the "A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire" degree. (This is the PE of both JFK's assassination in Masonic Dealey Plaza and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima 1945. President Harry Truman is known to have been a Freemasonry member.)

The most recent occurrence of 1N is the famous 'King of Alarm' or 'Terror' Eclipse of August 11, 1999 @ '19Leo' as noted by Nostradamus. The next manifestation of 1N will be on August 21, 2017 @ '29Leo' - if we haven't been left so unprotected from industrial practices and contaminates that we've coughed ourselves into oblivion long beforehand.

1N: unexpected events involving groups or friends with relationship issues looming large; hasty decisions are inadvisable since information is distorted and possibly false; elements of fatigue and health problems are attached (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

Well, a lack of clean air certainly brings mankind a myriad of health problems, a condtion which causes the words 'particulate matter' to come easily to mind and lung.

Coal Ash Flood 12.22.08: Saturn opposing Uranus

Dec 22, 2008 marked the largest environmental disaster of its kind in US history, the coal ash flood - or 'spill' - in Kingston, Tennessee, 40 miles west of Knoxville at the Kingston Fossil Plant

The initial estimates of the size of the carcinogenic sludge were woefully short and it turns out from aerial photographs that the actual amount is 5.4 cubic yards, enough to flood over 3,000 acres one foot deep. Three houses were destroyed by the coal ash flood which occurred when an earthen retaining wall gave way after much rain and cold temperatures.

And since coal ash is not regulated as a hazardous material, we may be hearing - or experiencing - more such disasters.

My guess is that we already have on some level - unless you like arsenic and mercury in your drinking water - because unlined ponds for capturing this lead and thallium infused muck are the preferred way the US coal industry and the TVA like to 'handle' this health threat.

In other words - they don't. No one had a plan for if/when the holding pond failed! So I have to say: don't debate the regulation of this hazardous material - line the nation's holding ponds, for cryin' out loud...line first, debate later.

Planets and Stars:

Dec 22, 2008, Kingston, TN, at appr 1:00 am est gives 5Lib31 rising, chart-ruler Venus 16AQ23 conjunct wounding Chiron in 5th house of Risk-taking, Gambling, and Children who may suffer nervous and reproductive disorders from such material which contaminates ground water.

Venus applies to conj with watery and often deceptive Neptune (5A46.)

At Midheaven is 6Can07, a Water sign, with Mercury 15Cap19 and Jupiter 26Cap43 in 4th house, along with the Pluto-Chiron midpoint of corporatism, oppression, racism, environmentalism, and disenfranchisement of all kinds.

The sign Cancer has nothing to do with the disease, cancer, but in this case, it seems too descriptive for comfort - and at the WHY? Point of the chart (Mc.) Of course, we associate business and making money with the sign, Cancer, along with protection and security.

And we can't miss the fact that Dec 22's early hours were the perfecting of Sun conjunct Pluto at a World Point. At 1:00 am est: Sun 00Cap46; Pluto 00Cap54, with Mars 26Sag13 nearby, all in 3rd house of The Neighborhood, Sagittarius the sign of the foreigner.

Asteroid Atlantis was conj Sun/Pluto as well - keywords: abuse of power; feeling doomed. Not a fun trio, that's for sure.

There are three midpoint pictures of note:

Mars-Pluto = Sun: accident potential; passionate attack to achieve an objective; upset of plans that is irredeemable; intervention of some undeniable force or authority. Guess the Tennessee Valley Authority might be included in that last one.

Moon-Neptune = Mars: weakened system.

Uranus-Asc = Mars: making things happen raucously; devil-may-care attitude. (All midpoint pics: Noel Tyl.)

Did I mention that asteroid Cupido (corporations; The Family; brethren) arose at 1:00 am? Cupido 6Lib00 - which makes it a transit to George Bush's natal Neptune. And like Eros, Cupido has a link with piercing (as with Cupid's arrows.)

Now I'm not making a case for sabotage, I'm just noting what's in the chart for Kingston's coal ash flood of Dec 22, 2008. At least I don't think I am. Seems with the 'weakened system' and poor planning and support, it was an accident looking for a place to happen.

Conjunct Fixed Star Denebola (to go against society; out of the mainstream), Saturn 21Vir41 opposes Uranus 19Pis00 (a Water sign) and we always look to Saturn when we think of 'earthen' and containment, which the pond did not do. Uranus (sudden events; lightening) in Watery Pisces affected the earthen retaining wall (Saturn) which should have been well-lined (Saturnian boundaries again.)

Well, Saturn was dissed, and he does not like that. Will this disaster prove that his lessons can be learned and applied by an AWOL government? I say 'AWOL' because as an American citizen, I did not give my government leave to become slack and sorry! Did you?

My heart goes out to the folks who live near this disaster which could have been lessened or avoided if such materials were regulated and government agencies performed their duties to protect the American people rather than the coal industry's bottom line.

But why fret? The TVA says mercury and arsenic levels in the area's drinking water are "barely detectable" so make mine a double over ice, would ya?
