US downgrade to AA+, GOP progressed chart tells of Bankruptcy

Astrology of a Downgrade with YOD Emphasis on Crisis

by Jude Cowell

In her insightful Weekend Forecast for August 5, 6, and 7, Julie Demboski notes a Moon/Jupiter opposition on August 5, 2011 and wonders, "Will it be a face-off with society?"

Well yes, it was, good call! Announced on Friday afternoon, NY's Standard and Poor's agency downgraded the US credit rating to AA+, the first downgrade in US history (click for full S&P report.)

A political call? Well,'protracted partisan squabbling over the debt limit' is cited:

NPR BREAKING NEWS: S&P Downgrades U.S. Credit Rating S&P downgraded the U.S. credit rating for the first time in history on Friday. The rating was lowered by one notch to AA+ from AAA due to political risks and a rising debt burden.

More at NPR.

It's unclear what the downgrade may lead to for our borrowing and interest rates and such, but see the horoscope below for a huge hint of its potential outcome--look for your personal loan costs to go up. The G-7 is meeting, ostensibly to 'head off' market turmoil next week but theirs may be wasted effort. Of course, I was one astrologer--and former resident of DC--who said after Mr. Obama won the presidency: no one in Washington will cooperate with him if he works on behalf of the people. But sometimes you just want to be wrong.

Interestingly, economist Robert Reich takes a different view of S&P's actions on Friday and I heartily agree with the Professor who lays a good part of the blame on S&P malfeasance leading up to 2008.

Damn the Torpedoes!

So, my fellow Americans: are you making plans now to vote GOP in 2012? No? Then I must agree with you on your decision since I fault the Republican Party's success-at-any-cost tactics of ensuring President Obama's failure no matter what it does to the nation, the US economy, or to the American people's finances and prospects.

Plus, moral bankruptcy of the Republican Party may also be implied in the progressed chart but that's a post for another day--and you don't need Astrology to tell you that, do you?

Word is, S&P had been warning politicians of a downgrade for six months--basically for all of 2011 as the debt limit/default debate got underway and Republicans/Tea Partisans and their billionaire masters mounted what they think is their winning hand for taking over the White House on January 21, 2013 (Jan 20th will be a Sunday this time which results in quite a different Inauguration Horoscope 2013 than it would for Jan 20.)

Meanwhile, at the White House

Now the US Treasury Department went over the documents that S&P sent over on Friday afternoon and swears there's been a $2 trillion "mathematical mistake" but we'll have to see how the dispute plays out. My suspicion is that S&P will stand firm on the downgrade though why anyone should trust a US rating agency at all is a mystery to me after their mushy culpability leading up to Financial Collapse 2008. (Of course, 2008 was a manufactured criminal endeavor of which 2011's political Debt Ceiling/Default Theater is a part---we're dealing with brigands and thieves on all sides here.)

And as previously noted on this blog, the current karmic Solar Eclipse of July 1, 2011 @ 9Can12 falls snugly between US natal Sun and Jupiter heralding trouble for leadership (Sun) and financial matters (Jupiter); the effects of the Cancer eclipse will be ongoing at least until the next Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ '2Sag', though it is not a very positive portent either, sad to say.

Karma Note: as a Saturnian astrologer I don't 'do' past lives at all so when I refer to 'karmic' I mean the natural law of the Universe that everyone--and every nation--must reap what is sown. As we know, debt, despair, loss, corruption, and fraud are what the American government has sown. And we-the-people are the ones tasked with picking the spoiled fruit thereof, never the rich who set up the fraud and benefited beyond all reason. But spiritually speaking, not to fret for this is only a temporary advantage for the deluded miscreants and criminals, both high and low!

Republican Party Progressions July 29, 2011: Sec YOD = "Bankruptcy"

On the afternoon of July 29, during the height of the political impasse in Washington, I became curious about the Secondary Progressions of the Republican Party and here the 'crisis' I found:

A YOD pattern is a 'Finger of God' configuration with 'special task or purpose; crossroads/turning point/crisis' implications. In the Sabian Symbols, '28 Gemini' = BANKRUPTCY which you see here on the Ascendant, the WHAT? Point of any chart.

An 8th H Sec Jupiter 28Cap16 conjoins US natal Pluto, and Sec Mercury 28Sco27 conjoins US Inaugural Moon of January 20, 2009. This Sec Mercury also conjoins President Obama's natal Midheaven (MC = Aspirations; Career; Public Standing), and the R Party's natal 12th house Moon (see below for Rs' natal chart details.)

S&P is "making a political statement" and says "there's no political appetite for raising revenue" as reported by NPR (click article link, above, or the S&P link.) Now this kind of spins my noggin around since the S&P 'voice' is issuing from NYC where Wall Street operates its giant casino--wha-a-a? The big dog$ want tax revenues to increase to ease our debt crisis? Tax the rich, can we? Well, if the GOP would swallow the expiring of Bush tax cuts, if big corporations paid their fair share in taxes and created jobs in the US again, then most if not all of our revenue troubles would be disappear. Loving America, I'd be game for that. Are you, dear reader?

There is a midpoint picture formed by the YOD:

Mercury/Jupiter = ASC: an ability to arrange things skillfully; organizing talent; successful meetings and teamwork; discussions about how to communicate; a repression of opinions. (Ebertin; Munkasey.) Sounds like Mercury/Jupiter's grand schemes/plans and political strategy sessions to me--with US Bankruptcy on tap.

In Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, Michael Munkasey lists the Politics and Business potentials for the Mercury/Jupiter combo of energies:

Thesis: plans for expansion and growth (of GOP influence, anyway--jc); discussion of business or legal affairs, and religious or philosophical ideals. (Ye olde 'America as Utopia' plan from centuries ago rears its ugly idealistic head again: Uranus now in Aries = Utopians--jc.)

Antithesis: a budget strained by too much expansion or inflation (ya think? jc); legal decisions that affect commerce or transportation; religion censures scholarship; religious leaders with desires to assume political power.

(Here I should add the usual "any, all, or none may apply" but I won't because they all seem to describe our situation, imho, though of course you may disagree.)

In transits for July 29, 2011 there was another YOD within the environment between plutocratic Pluto/Chiron (in sextile--60 degrees) pointing toward the Sun 6Leo12 (@ noon) which also happens to conjoin US natal North Node (NN = destiny; future direction.) Now I do tend to use the Pluto/Chiron duo in mundane horoscopes to keep tabs on global-transnational corporations since the pair indicates: corporatism, capitalism, fascism, racism, (and other -isms), disenfranchisement, primal violence, and oppression in general.

Another transit that applies to our debt-default-downgrade tale is Jupiter in Taurus (see chart) which lies between the GOP Sec Uranus/Pluto midpoint. This will continue for quite some time since Jupiter will perform a retrograde station, eventually move forward again, and thus remain within the purview of the Rs' Uranus/Pluto midpoint...the combo of Uranus/Pluto = revolution, upheavals that change government, disruption of processes (yep!), movements intent on forcing changes, and sudden new criminal acts' (Munkasey.) Here's the picture--all may apply:

Sec Uranus/Pluto = tr Jupiter: added insights into legal and political processes are used for expressing ideas about reform and change; excessively strong feelings about imposing major changes into many paths of life; immense success (congratulations on our downgrade--jc); pursuit of religious or philosophical objectives; striving for social improvements (which are apparently in the eye of the anti-Obama beholder--jc.)

Of course, Uranus and Pluto now square one another by transit in active, initiating Cardinal signs, a cyclical period issuing from their Great Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s with similar uprisings/protests/strikes/rebellion/Civil Rights matters returning for societal resolution, if possible. These intense planets come closest to an exact square (partile) on August 8, 2011--the very Monday they're concerned about Asian markets' reactions to the the US downgrade. Mars continues his out-of-bounds activities--not playing ball with the other planets (actors) and cantankerous in Moon-ruled Cancer, as always. Click link to view the chart set for DC.

Calling All Mavericks and Sacred Warriors!

Around the GOP's Sec 8th cusp of Debt, Credit, Insurance, Corporations, Big Business, Legacies, Transformation, the Occult, and Death, is a trio of interest: Jupiter, as noted in the YOD, wounding/wounded Chiron 19Cap31 with Hermes (a trickster element with alchemical talents and an Egyptian tinge), and activist Mars 15Cap46, all focused, efficient, and exalted in Capricorn, sign of Government, Law, and Business.

The Mars/Chiron pair is the 'sacred warrior' archetype, an ego inflation you might have to have in order to crash the American economy for what you believe to be a 'higher cause' this case, a New World Order where those select few at the top 'lord it over' the rest of us.

Jupiter/Chiron intensifies the warrior mentality with strong convictions (Jupiter) which they feel great compulsion to communicate to everyone; their inner world is numinous to a point of denying outer realities--but is the US credit downgrade a wake-up call for the GOP-TP? Their abundant arrogance and know-it-all attitude makes this doubtful--in similar fashion to how they deny that their violent rhetoric inspires freaky shooters to take action based on how they perceive the GOP's stated ideals.

Basically, Jupiter conjunct Chiron is "a maverick with a superiority complex who listens very little to others." (Clow) A tendency to project negative traits upon others which denies them in oneself is prevalent with this conjunction and is a typical political maneuver.

Now a word about the degrees around which the Mars/Chiron pair is snugged and the 8th cusp degree: '18 Capricorn' is the telling degree of the New World Order for its where Uranus and Neptune met in 1993 at their last Great Conjunction/s...

" '18Cap' = "The Union Jack Flag Flies from a British Destroyer"...POLITICAL POWER, its values and its dangers...

Keynote: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.
Alas, this power can easily be misused under the pretext of preserving 'law and order'."(Rudhyar.)

Marc Edmund Jones adds:

"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;

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

Now if the US credit downgrade of August 5, 2011 amounts to big trouble for America and the American people, I know that the Republican and Tea Parties will attempt to paint its taint upon the presidency of Barack Obama--and to some degree this may be deserved.

But this dissenting DAR American hereby gives notice with this post showing the progressed horoscope of the GOP and its 'Bankruptcy' implication that I, for one, will always primarily fault Republican leadership (plus, any Dem enablers and the Tea Partisans) for what has transpired as they do their darnedest to collapse the economy of the United States of America and (they hope) blame Pres. Obama for it because they and their corporate NWO masters believe they can rebuild upon ruins a global model of a Utopian society of chaos and total control.

As if that could be an improvement!


Some Notes on the Republican Party Natal Chart

Please click image to enlarge the chart above because a few details not mentioned in this text are shown; progressed chart is based on natal horoscope with Republican natal data from historical record: July 6, 1854 5:00 pm LMT Jackson, MI--I'm not certain but I believe it was the excellent John Townley who informed me of '5:00 pm' as the hour their platform was adopted and the Rs created a political party; GOP natal Sun 14Can27 conjoins SIRIUS and US natal Sun (perhaps why they think only they should control the White House?), and Moon 27Sco50 conjoins their Sec Mercury mentioned above.

Power-mad Pluto 3Tau36 ('4Tau' = "A Rainbow's Pot of Gold") is unaspected in 5th house so Mr. Underworld manipulates from an ivory tower somewhere; there are no planetary patterns, but two natal midpoint pictures:

Sun/Neptune = Uranus 15Tau18 (the stubborn Oxen Point): sudden upsets or spasms; emotional crisis; mourning; visualization and dreaming about Astrology (!); adjustment of old dreams to fit newly developing situations; upsets caused by ignoring reality while dreaming; indifference toward others while inwardly escaping (to Bohemian Grove for an annual romp? jc.)

Saturn/NN = Venus 5Gem13: a lack of adaptability.

Rushing Back to Washington!

The R Party's 8th H Mercury 10Leo05 was eclipsed by the August 1, 2008
Beijing Solar Eclipse
(chart shown) which occurred during China's Olympic Games (remember their massive earthquake?) and was a harbinger of the staged financial crisis in the US when John McCain (whose natal Mercury was eclipsed as well) rushed back to 'rescue the economy' after dramatically 'suspending' his presidential campaign. Also eclipsed was George W. Bush's natal Mercury, and that of the NYSE, too--by the 10 South--'breaking out of a very negative situation where no options can be seen; worries suddenly clear; the solution is shown by the Cosmos (bwo their use of Astrology? jc) and must be taken up without delay.' (Paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

The August 2008 eclipse manifested near Mr. Obama's natal Sun as well with a two-degree orb.

Of note is China's involvement in 2008 and their remarks now on the US being "addicted to debt"--then why did they make it possible? Any ulterior motives toward a NWO, China?

Apparently, undermining the Democratic presidency of Barack Obama is the best the GOP could come up with in 2008 for they saw the writing on the political wall after eight economically disastrous years of warhawk Republicans, Bush and Cheney. But nothing they do against Pres. Obama--and by extension, us--can hide their financial culpability from me for collapse and bankruptcy are their desperate plan. Funny, isn't it, that Bankrupting America is the stated objective for the attacks of 9/11, as stated by Osama bin Laden...and 9/11's Moon @ '28Gem' = "Bankruptcy", as noted many times previously on this blog and elsewhere.

Well, there's a lot more to say about the Astrology of the Republican Party, natal and progressed. But this is all I can take of the sorry varmints at the moment so I'll be moseying along with a hope of not thinking about them the rest of the weekend, if I can possibly manage it.

Even so, your on-topic comments and insights are always much appreciated! jc

Horoscopes: Obama's Solar Return 2011 w his Sec Full Moon

The Solar Return 2011 Horoscope of President Barack Obama w Sec Full Moon

by Jude Cowell

President Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961 at 7:24 pm AHST and the Sun returns to natal position this year on August 5, 2011 at 3:07:01 am edt; the Solar Return chart (SR) below, is relocated to the White House.

Here's his SR 2011 horoscope; please click to enlarge:

(Blog Note: the above image of the President's SR 2011 is a re-upload since its original posting mysteriously 'disappeared' from its slot. Hopefully it will now remain in this post. And since I'm just getting the hang of a new scanner--with too many bells & whistles--you may have to click-to-enlarge the image for better viewing. Thanks! jc)

Original text continues here:

Solar Return charts describe an entire year until one's next birthday and may be divided into quarterly sections for timing purposes with the Angular houses representing the first 4 months of the solar year (counting from the date of the return chart, here August 5th), the succedent houses (2,5,8,11) showing the next 4 months (here December 2011, January, February, March 2012), and the cadent houses (3,6,9,12) indicating conditions in the last 4 months before his August 2012 birthday.

As you know, there are many considerations when reading a SR chart such as:

angular planets (and the one closest to an angle: here it's Pluto conjunct Descendant (powerful/manipulative/wealthy partners), next is Mars conjunct Ascendant--their opposition is first-up for Mr. Obama who now deals with the GOP debt ceiling/default stand-off with Republicans determined to protect the rich man's purse: update 7.31: tentative debt deal announced @ 8:40 pm edt with US natal Moon rising--possible votes in House and Senate today, 8.1.11), the house of and aspects to natal Sun (here in 2nd house with evaluating Venus showing money and Treasury concerns continuing into December 2011 and beyond), the sign, house, and aspects of the SR Moon (here in Libra in the 5th H of Risk-Taking), the first natal planet to rise (here Mr. Obama's natal Venus has just risen and is conjoined by activist Mars, grumpy in Cancer), SR planets aspecting the natal and progressed charts, SR house rulers (of course), hemispheric emphases, where natal planets fall in the SR chart, and other factors to fill out the SR picture.

President Obama's SR 2011 hemispheric emphases: 5/5 for public and private sectors (balanced), and the edge is slightly on the Self-Directed side with 6 planets in the eastern hemisphere, 4 on the western side of Others.

Of course, the SR chart must always be compared to natal and progressed charts and a fuller picture is gained by considering the year's worth of Lunar Return charts along with the SR.

Just four days after the president's birthday, on August 8, 2011, the revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square perfects most closely with Mars @ 3Can25--just crossing this SR ASC. Click to view the horoscope. Societal issues from their conjunctions of the mid-60s surface for dynamic resolution or worsening. Mars crossing his SR 2011 ASC highlights that period as a time for action and may be explosive and/or full of zeal, especially since Mars opposes power-mad Pluto.

SR 2011 Midpoint Pictures

So if you've read this blog before, you know I favor the use of planetary midpoint pictures and here, the first four have been in effect for weeks for all of us but are personalized for Mr. Obama during his SR 2011 year; any, all, or none may apply and are subject to activation from transits and progressions:

Mars/Pluto = Uranus (in Aries, Uranus = Utopians): brutality; sudden disasters of great consequence; stirring up or altering conditions.

Jupiter/Neptune = Uranus: sudden recognition of a difficult situation; imagination v reality; coming down to earth with a bump.

Jupiter/NN = Neptune: instability; unreliability; indecision or vacillation; disappointment; getting sober again.

Saturn/Neptune = NN: common or joint suffering; mourning.

A mdpt picture particular to the president's SR 2011 chart:

Pluto/ASC = Uranus: constant anxiety and restlessness; extraordinary upsets and incidents; accidents.

(Mdpt pics: Ebertin; Munkasey; Tyl.)

Planetary patterns include a 'double' YOD (Sun/Saturn = MC; Venus/Saturn = MC, with both indicating separation and isolation, part of the job description for any US president; tr Saturn square natal Sun is a time (here, for all of his SR 2011 year) of inhibiting people (not good for the ego), challenges that bring delays, sobering events, rules and red-tape annoyances, and determination toward goals being seriously tested. This is an echo of our US natal Sun/Saturn square, and blockages from or by legal actions are implied.

Also there is a Kite pattern with Neptune and Chiron as the 'tail', and a Mystic Rectangle ('practial mysticism') involving Mercury, Pluto, Mars/ASC, and shaman Chiron (in process of a Chiron Return to Mr. Obama's first house Chiron in Pisces.)

Mercury 1Vir00 Rx opposes Neptune 00Pis00 Rx--about to return to late degrees of Aquarius--which indicates a time of falling victim to competitors' subversive tactics. Yes, I know--this describes his entire presidency so far, but we can expect political games and tricks of Rs v Ds to continue as the 2012 campaign heats up. (And no, we don't need Astrology to tell us that!)

SR 2011 Sun in SR 2nd H indicates a continuing emphasis on financial matters for the president with asteroid Cupido (Corporatism; The Family; The Syndicate) @ 12Can58 conjunct US natal Sun (the leader) and parallel Mr. Obama's SR 2011 Mars, still out-of-bounds (OOBs) and in Fall in Cancer where the Testy One tends to be emotionally touchy--it doesn't take much to set him off.

The Solar Return Moon denotes the emotional tone of his year along with the type of daily and domestic matters he will deal with. In Libra, SR Moon reflects: harmony in domestic conditions along with sensitivity in detecting imbalances in the environment, the number of social events may increase, women play more important roles in the proceedings, and cooperation is the key word.

SR Moon in SR 5th house brings change, fluctuation, or transition in any or all 5th H matters (children, risk-taking/gambling, creative pursuits, romance) along with emotional dependency on relationships, and/or a tendency to be unrealistic about partnerships or unions. Libra is an Air sign which resonates well with Mr. Obama's Airy natal Moon in communicative Gemini. Sounds like his emotional weather for the year will be an improvement over the solar implications for ego battering, or ego challenging at the least.

Another thing about SR Mars 1Can17 (besides the fact that it conjoins the president's natal Venus to the minute): this martian catalyst 'reaches forward' to November 2011 and squares Mr. Obama's Secondary Full Moon @ 1Ari11 on November 6, 2011. Below is the horoscope of his Sec Full Moon, the timer for just how far one may stretch or expand into the outer world in appr. 28-year increments, from New Moon to New Moon. How the timing of his Sec Full Moon plays into Mr. Obama being elected for a second term is uncertain for I believe that if the powers-that-be want him for a second term, they're have him. But how would a second term go for him after 'peaking' in November 2011?

Well, as we see now, our US Sec Full Moon 4Vir10, which occurred on December 24, 2008, has marked a time of dimming light for America and a reining in of our expansionist tendencies. And of course, Financial Collapse 2008 marks the obvious beginning of our decline though it was years coming. Perhaps the tentative 'debt-default deal' allegedly reached last evening between Congress and the White House (and yet to be passed by both Houses) well describes America's 2008 Sec Full Moon condition for it places limits on US financial over-spending including military budget cuts.

So here you see the Sec Full Moon horoscope; please click to enlarge; you may be interested in the notes, lower right, with a few details on the president's progressed inconjunction between the Aries Moon and Venus in Virgo. Another inconjunct (quincunx) appears between Sec Jupiter 27Cap19 (conjunct US n Pluto 27:33 Rx) and Sec Uranus 28Leo19 (conjunct his Sec NN...Uran/NN = radical or reformist political groups.)

Jupiter inconj Uranus indicates that adjustments are required between political aims (Ura/NN) and financial (2nd H) and societal conditions necessary to pull them off. These finances and conditions involve partnerships (7th H) with the Jupiter/Pluto connection denoting those who are responsible for large projects such as war, the world banking industry and plutocrats, and global religious organizations.

As you know, this Sec Full Moon 1Ari11 conjoins the IC of the US natal chart (Sibly; 5:10 pm LMT--changes at home) with Sec Sun 1Lib11 @ US n MC (Home v Career/Public Standing.) On November 6, 2011, the transiting Moon conjoins his Sec Moon (a Progressed Moon Return) along with tr Uranus 1Ari06 Rx, with Moon/Uranus themes of excitability, changes, new lifestyles, and possibly chaotic conditions.

(The November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse opposite his natal Gemini Moon may not help matters with its sinister undercurrent, I suspect, but that's a post for another day.)

There may be a tragic deception or illusion (Sun/Neptune = Pluto) affecting society--one potential by then, is that more info will have come out concerning the current 'debt-default deal' and its dire affects on our weakened economy and possible consequences which harm the ill, weak, young, and elderly. We'll see since it's early days on that and for the non-constitutional 'Super Congress' they've created to finagle the bill's ultimate provisions.

Well, take a look at Mr. Obama's Sec Full Moon horoscope and see what you think. We can discuss the chart more at length as November 2011 nears, if either of you wish:

ASC/DESC axis 20Can/Cap34 at critical or crisis degrees, Fixed Stars Castor and Pollux, the Gemini Twins, rise with their 'dark twin-light twin' vibe which may be said to describe in part President Obama's mixed parental heritage. Moon in Mars-ruled Aries indicates rashness or over-eagerness, a personal will influenced by feelings, and/or a lust for power.

Sun in Libra (1:11) is @ the Sec Full Moon's Point of Illumination opposite, a unconscious point of awareness. Sun in Libra denotes sociableness, adaptation, constancy or a lack of firmness, diplomacy, the importance of partnerships, and being motivated by a public spirit. He is independent yet needs others!

Until Sec Moon reaches Taurus in 2+ years after Nov 2011, the combo of Sun Lib/Moon Aries (Air-Fire, whereas his natal Sun Leo/Moon Gem = Fire-Air) gives President Obama a restless and willful nature, a sense of justice, and an entertaining personality with a feisty but cool-headed aura. He can really defend the underdog with this combination, but will he?

An awkward stubbornness when reaching one's limits is evident with this Sun/Moon combo which does not bode well for acceptance of the Nov 2011 Sec Full Moon as marking the natural limit of his expansion into the world--but perhaps his 'cooler head' will prevail within himself on that score and realism will set in. Or, perhaps Mr. Obama will ignore this portent and lose his re-election bid in 2012, an outcome which must be determined by many other astrological and societal factors which are outside the scope of today's column.

Natally, Sun Lib/Moon Aries is shared by two people who illustrate glimmers of Politics within these famous quotes:

"Hell hath no fury like a liberal scorned." - Dick Gregory

"A politician is an arse upon which everyone has sat except a man." - E. E. Cummings

To know is to loathe: John McCain in Arizona

The Phoenix New Times has an enlightening article by Amy Silverman, who has covered John McCain for years, which brings the man into clear focus as something of a mountebank, opportunist extraordinaire, and a liar to boot.

Sounds like qualifications for political office (I know!) but read Silverman's insights if you haven't already.

What McCain did to sabotage Arizona's Rose Mofford during her testimony before the Senate Energy and Water Development Subcommittee on Appropriations on the topic of the Central Arizona Project on April 12, 1988 should be known by anyone considering voting for one of the most manipulative Moon/Pluto individuals you'd ever want to avoid.

And descriptively enough, on that April day, 1988, guess which asteroid was conjunct McCain's natal Sun 6Vir+ and thus triggering his considerable ego needs for recognition?

Nemesis, whose keyphrases are: the unbeatable foe; divine retribution.

When afterwards a friend asked the Senator why he sabotaged Mofford's testimony, McCain replied: "I'll embarrass a Democrat any time I get a chance."

To know him is to loathe him. How well do you know John McCain?


See my article on the natal chart of John geezer McCain at Jude's Threshold if you're interested in his particulars.

And here's a linky trail to a few details on the progressed chart, April 2008 of John McCain, the leading neocon of the moment and apparently the best the GOP can offer for continuing and promoting plans for the New World Order chaos now ruining the other words: the third term of George W. Bush.

That Feeling of Fate

Surfing so that you don't have to, I've come upon another well-written article by astrologer Lynn Hayes who opens up the astrology of the natal chart when interpreted with the progressed chart for you--their uses and differences, with her Musings on Fate and the Progressed Chart.

As Lynn explains so well, we're fated to express our natal charts.

Yet much may be gleaned from knowing our progressed charts--how we've evolved and what our natal tendencies have led to. Yes, the information found in a progressed chart is invaluable to the seeker.

Bravo, Lynn!
