Autumn Equinox 2019: a Pentagram of Ordo Ab Chao

Autumn EQ 2019 Washington DC: Good vs Evil, As Within So Without

by Jude Cowell

In Manly P. Hall's The Secret Teachings of All Ages we find that, the pentagram symbol (5-pointed star) is "the time-honored symbol of the magical arts".."the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body. By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man may not only master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself." (My italics.)

Will Order From Chaos occur and override Uranian Donald Trump who only knows how to 'govern' via chaos and who is overshadowed by lawsuits and investigations everywhere he turns? We can hope. Now as you see in the Autumn Equinox 2019 Horoscope, below, the US Inaugural Ascendant (14Taurus) sits atop the chart at Midheaven ('MC'), the Goal Point, as does the Moon-Neptune midpoint. This forms two pictures suggesting an unstable personality who is "gripped by forebodings." Can this be Trump under pressure and feeling cornered? Well, in mundane charts the Sun represents the leader, or in this case, US POTUS (by which I mean the fellow currently playing the role) and this Sun 00Lib00:00 conjoins the Jupiter-North-Node midpoint in the 2nd house of the National Treasury (with chart-ruler Sun making no Ptolemaic aspects in the chart other than opposing Chiron). Of course, one of Trump's favorite planets, Mars @23Virgo, is in 2nd house as well and conjoins US natal Neptune, a time when unwise decisions are probable and getting to the bottom of things is difficult if not impossible. Keeping a low profile is the best course of action but who would expect such moderation from attention-hound Trump? Especially since America's natal Mars-Neptune square of misguided action is activated by transit Mars to Neptune.

Then with the anti-social Neptune-North-Node midpoint conjunct the Equinox MC we may expect that the help of others is needed in order to reach objectives, while someone is in seclusion (though he may still be tweeting up a storm and calling heads of state on the phone for cozy chats. The way you do).

Above you see the DC Horoscope for Autumn Equinox 2019 which perfects when the Sun enters Libra (00:00:00) on September 23 at 3:50:25 am edt (aka, the Libra Ingress); highlighted in red is a stretched pentagram pattern pointing toward the Midheaven of the chart (MC 14Tau54) which subsequently conjoins America's Presidential Oath of Office, the Ascendant, at noon on January 20th, the swearing in of a new president. In this case, that would be Trump playing the POTUS role. The lower left point of the star conjuncts Trump's Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter trio in his natal 2nd house--closest to his Chiron and therefore the middle of his speculating, inflating, fraudulent Jupiter-Neptune midpoint. So for Herr Spanky a midpoint picture of potentials is formed by transit Mercury (conjunct US natal Saturn 14Lib4) as apex---his natal Jupiter-Neptune = transit Mercury: skills with deceptive practices; misleading or misdirecting the attention of others. With US n Saturn: combining the real with the unreal in activities; curtailed occult practices (Munkasey). Also note that rising in 1st house is transit Nemesis @28Leo26 conjunct the natal Mars and Ascendant of Donald Trump (which brings royal Regulus along as well: success if revenge is avoided--if not, every gain is taken away). Finally, is this a cosmic picture of a foe that's unbeatable for Teflon Trump?

Note: you're welcomed to take exception to my use of the stretched pentagram shown here but let's proceed in case the pattern turns out to have relevance to events and to current crises at least until Winter Solstice 2019 occurs and 'takes over' in December. If the pentagram is irrelevant, we'll find out by the time 2019 careens on into 2020.

Now a pentagram is a 5th Harmonic pattern and with an exact one, all five points (planets, points, etc) would be conjunct in a 5th harmonic chart ('H5'). Yet pentagrams rarely turn up in horoscopes so I'm allowing a stretching for this one. For as you know, its symbolism has been used for centuries by secret societies, other organizations, and in sacred, gnostic, Kabbalistic, and satanic systems and beliefs. In Christianity a pentagram often represents The Star of the Magi (or, Star of Bethlehem) and, as noted by Manly Hall in the quote, above, relates to man--and particularly to Leonardo da Vinci's illustration of the Vitruvian Man (health, fitness, asteroid Hygeia, the practice of medicine). Issues of the 'balance between mind and body' are implied which suggests some of the public discourse prevalent concerning the health of Donald Trump.

So pentagrams also relate to the Mind of Man (and Woman), the Fire element, to creative regeneration, and to those who are on a continual, adventurous quest upon which new, often unexpected events are encountered which may help rectify mistakes or past events--thus bringing order out of chaos. Plus, a definite spiritual component (good vs evil) is involved when a pentagram appears and there's often a 'brilliant bolt from the blue' that hints of erratic Uranus, The Witness, the Rebel, the Disrupter, the Maverick--and changes of direction become necessary. (Note that Uranus @5Tau55 Rx in 9th house is unaspected in this chart suggesting 'spurts of unusual behavior projected onto others'--Tierney.) Also Sun unaspected indicates a self-involved person with no conscience.

So does the Autumn EQ 2019 pentagram symbolize that someone new will appear on the scene, someone to counter Uranian Trump successfully? If so, he or she may be characterized as a 'giant' who has the power to affect and manipulate global events either for good or evil. Is she/he already on the scene (exs: the fellow lurking in the Oval Office, or, a 2020 candidate?) or is she/he someone new as suggested by the pentagram? With Venus in Libra in the 2020 Election Horoscope, the incumbent party is expected to retain control of the presidency although the Venus Cycle didn't manage to block a couple of exceptions to the rule in past presidential elections. So the certainty that this must be Trump in 2020 isn't necessarily the case, I suppose, and certainly much has happened in recent weeks on the Trump-whistleblower-Ukrainian front to suggest more strongly and blatantly than ever how unfit for office Trump is. Plus, Venus Cycle or no, if enough women, minorities, and Millennials vote Democrat, another Blue Wave could sweep his nibs out to sea.

Yet it's also possible that his status as Teflon Trump, a Bacchus figure (see 2nd house Sun @00Libra conjunct transit Bacchus!), will continue to protect him from all accusations and threats which suggests to me that people in very high places want him to remain in the White House as the saboteurs of America tick off items on their devilish to-do list. We know that major shifts are occurring around the world so is US global leadership becoming a thing of the past under agent Trump?

Then with another look at the horoscope, we see that Pluto-MC = Neptune which denotes potential scandals, other-worldliness, peculiarities, and "power run amuck" (Tyl)--a few of the things we already have experienced under the auspices of scofflaw Donald Trump. So if someone 'new' intends to appear, let's hope our difficulties will abate soon even if they can't disappear all together especially since December 26, 2019 brings the world a Capricorn Solar Eclipse in the 3 South Saros Series with its authority-related karmic imperatives and the promise--whether we're ready for it or not--of traumatic transformation, a concept which is well supported by transit Pluto plodding through Saturn-ruled Capricorn, transforming structures and systems as he creeps toward 2022 and his position in our nation's July 4, 1776 chart.

Summer Solstice 2019's Planetary Patterns

The Planetary Patterns of Summer 2019 with Jupiter Leading the Throng

by Jude Cowell

In a previous post we considered the DC Horoscopes of Spring Equinox 2019 and Summer Solstice 2019 with both charts set for the White House and both having the same signs and degrees on their angles (14 Virgo rising, 12 Gemini at MC) which spotlights astrological Mercury--retrograde in Pisces and hangin' with deceptive Neptune in Spring but speeding through Cancer during the month of June.

As I type, we're in April and poised within the Spring season as we look ahead toward Summer so let's take another peek at the Summer Solstice 2019 chart with its Mutable Grand Cross, dynamic T-Squares, a focussed YOD, a Mystic Rectangle, and a Locomotive shape of planets chugging along behind Jupiter Rx.

Plus, Summer 2019 as a topic must include the karmic July 2, 2019 Solar Eclipse in Cancer and the July 2019 Lunar Eclipse (DC Horoscopes shown). So that's two disruptive Uranian 'wild cards' or 'cosmic blinks' in July, plus, America's 243rd birthday!

And mention should be made that in this chart Uranus @5Tau34 in the 8th house of Corporatism, Transformation, Debt/Credit, Insurance, Shared Resources, and the Occult is unaspected. Yes, Trump is a Jupiterian (natal Jupiter Stationary, materialistic and large) and a Martian (Mars rising with royal Regulus in royal Leo) but he's also very much a radical Uranian with his 10th house Uranus in Gemini behaving as his 'guiding planet' of chaos and disruption. When unaspected, the independent nature of planet Uranus is intensified along with its tendency to be unaffected by outside influences. Sparks of intuition may occur but won't inform the rest of the planets so that rigid, self-defeating, unconscious patterns of behavior are enforced rather than improved upon. And as you know, Uranus in money-oriented Taurus denotes a period when unusual sources of income are sought and speculation risks all in one roll of the dice. But with quirky Uranus in staid Taurus, premature action often leads to failure (Ebertin) making prudence and caution necessary.

Horoscope: Summer Solstice June 21, 2019 11:54:30 am edt White House Washington DC with my messy notes penned on as usual; please enlarge the image if you dare:

Prominent Planetary Patterns of Summer 2019

First, Jupiter Rx is the engine leading a Locomotive shape in the chart and this denotes high-powered executive/s ruthlessly determined upon success (Trump?). Yet with Jupiter retrograde, his plans may be delayed, interrupted, or somehow debilitated. Perhaps things will more easily progress once Jupiter resumes direct motion and trundles on his way forward after August 11, 2019. Note that astrological Jupiter may play many roles: politician, banker, corporatist, religious figure, judge, lawyer, military general, a wealthy person, a civil servant, an explorer/adventurer, and/or a fortune hunter.

A Mutable Grand Cross (Venus, Jupiter, Neptune, ASC) spotlights conditions of extreme restlessness and nervousness yet if the energies are well-handled can instead denote alertness and mental vigor. However, plans under its sway tend to be implemented inconsistently, indirectly, and by using impractical methods. Concentration is often lacking or is vacillating and indecisive. Needless to say, conditions are frustrating and, similar to the sign of Gemini, mental focus and actions tend to be spread too thinly in multiple directions to be as successful as they could be. Of course, the Grand Cross's oppositions describe a need to integrate logic and reasoning ability into circumstances and relationships in order to mitigate at least some of the instability and unreliability suggested here.

Add to this the muddled thinking and dreaminess when it comes to facing harsh realities embedded within a Jupiter-Neptune square, plus, a Venus-Neptune square's difficulty discerning the difference between reality and fantasy--with both squares and the people they represent affected by watery Neptune in its own sign of secretive Pisces--Neptune, planet of deception, lies, fraud, confusion, the media, the masses, and propaganda so it seems that we have a continuation of the Trumpish atmosphere of fantasy and deceit we've been mired in since Summer 2015.

Now naturally, any Grand Cross contains a few T-Squares, and the primary of which here is Venus-Jupiter = Neptune (conjunct the Descendant axis) so that foreign capital investments and/or foreign raids on the treasury are potentials. As a midpoint picture, possibilities include expansion, inflation, weakened limitations (such as laws?), and illusion and confusion delaying real progress. Also note that value-loving Venus is in duplicitous Gemini at the top of the chart for the entire world to see. Therefore, currency issues may also be indicated and be a goal (MC) and a topic of public discourse (Gemini). But Venus can also vengeful (especially when scorned) so retaliation may be on our Summer calendar as it always is for Donald Trump.

Then opposite Venus is banking planet Jupiter at IC and retrograde until August 11, 2019 (stations @14Sag30) so finances are in process of being reviewed, lessened, delayed, and/or retracted. Jupiter in 4th house suggests the involvement of Real Estate and/or Mining. Also in 4th house is Summer Solstice 2019's Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') of January 5, 2019 @15Capricorn which imprinted upon the 116th Congress with its theme of 'joining new groups and gaining a great deal' ( Brady). Having two money planets opposing one another sounds a lot like a financial stand-off of some kind, doesn't it?

The YOD pointing toward the North Node (and Focused YOD pointing toward Saturn) show that a turning point or crossroad has been reached, a special task must completed, and/or a crisis awaits which must be dealt with. Plus, a combination of Saturn and South Node (of the Moon) is extremely limiting (cooperation needed!) and suggests some form of separation. However, at the base of the YOD the Moon-Jupiter sextile (60 degrees) suggests a ray of hope (A. Oken) yet we cannot ignore the fact that the Moon (the public) is apex of the socially concerned Saturn-Neptune midpoint which can indicate people with low character, pessimism, depression, and/or activities that serve no real purpose. And as a midpoint picture, Moon-Jupiter = Saturn also suggests limiting conditions; luck in brief spurts; lasting emotional misconceptions; negligence; inner conflicts; social disadvantages; and/or liver or gall bladder disease (Ebertin). Moon-Jupiter with NN merely hints at associations and new contacts that are 'on our path'.

As for the Mystic Rectangle (a pattern which always sounds rather groovy to me!) between Saturn, Neptune, NN, and ASC, its 'practical mysticism' vibe and karmic implications (Saturn, Nodal axis, and even slow-moving Neptune) can usually denote those who use mystical and/or astrological principles to guide their plans and actions so with Washington DC and our Founding Fathers well known for their mystical and astrological tendencies and interests via secret societies (ex: Freemasonry), I'll leave it for you to decide what and who in our present day may be hiding behind the scenes and manipulating outcomes during Summer 2019--or if the mystical pattern even applies to our circumstances at all!
