Humanity at the Crossroads of Destiny

by Jude Cowell

In a September 2020 post concerning Mars stationing @29Aries on September 9th, we discussed the station degree's Sabian Symbol, The Music of the Spheres. Also mentioned in the post was a certain aspect that reminds me somewhat of those 'wild cards of the Universe', those 'cosmic blinks' we Earthlings know as eclipses.

So as regular readers of SO'W may know, eclipses often turn up in my posts primarily because eclipse cycles are informative when it comes to the study of historical cycles, and because eclipse themes are descriptive of energies, influences, and conditions running in the background of society during the period an eclipse is operative.

Such a lovely cosmic Symbol for activist planet of motivation and desire, Mars, isn't it? Thing is, it's one degree after the position of J6 Mars @30Aries once the planet of violence and protests turned Direct in mid-Aries at the November 14, 2020 "maga Million-Man March" on Washington on behalf of bu*t-hurt election-loser, Donald Tr*mp. Trumpist resentments were made clear that day! But they were made even clearer when transit Mars - males, some in, some out of militia outfits - went on to viciously attack the US Congress on January 6, 2021 in a coup attempt meant to stop or disrupt Congress' Vote Certification of Joe Biden's victory.

Then as you know, hours later President Biden's victory was certified despite Trump's desperate desire to hold on to power. J6 Mars: "30Aries": "A Duck Pond and Its Brood" - instigated by a brooding Herr Tr*mp, monarch-wanna-be.

Uranus-Neptune: Such Irrational Times We Live In

Now yes, it's as tiresome to type once again about the world's ongoing misfortune as it is for you to read of it, but there's a particular reason to mention these topics today: because over our heads, two transpersonal planets, Uranus and Neptune, are in septile aspect with one another. Septiles represent The Grand Irrationality, writes expert astrologer Robert Wilkinson (see his article link in the post noted, above), and I'll add that during these septilian times (see what I did there?!), and with the Uranus-Neptune pair known as both the 'new world order' and The Enlightenment duo, travel in a septile aspect (51:26 degrees, to be exact), indicating that the karmic pair "underscores our Collective feeling that humanity is at the crossroads of destiny".

Therefore, it's understandable that those receptive to otherworldly influences of a higher plane are feeling such difficult energies subtly acting upon and within the Collective. Not that knowledge of Astrology is necessary, for astrological principles only attempt to describe reflections, in an As Above, So Below kind of way.

And we know that, even with our country's global leadership role seriously undermined by enemies at home and abroad, it remains true that where America goes, so goes the world. At least that's the sinister plan of America's enemies in this Freedom vs Slavery (Uranus vs Neptune) conflict of good vs evil. Destructive forces are seeking to re-establish antiquated notions and negative conditions! How daft that humanity should regress!

Yes, regressive anti-societal forces must be resisted even while the septile suggests the concept of an "existential crisis" so often mentioned these days in the form of America's obvious democracy vs fascism standoff, and which also echoes the imperatives of a YOD planetary pattern of 'turning points-crossroads-special tasks' and/or 'karmic opportunities' - at least for those "woke" enough to realize that the time to take action on behalf of democracy is NOW, but may also benefit the privileged few who have the where-with-all to consider crises as opportunities.

September 2020 Mars: "The Music Of The Spheres"

2020 Mars in the Cosmic Order of the Universe

by Jude Cowell

April 6, 2020: As my wait for delivery of fresh printer ink cartridges drags on into April, I've decided to take horoscope matters into my own paws and perpetrate a messily hand-drawn version of a chart for the Mars Station Direct on September 9, 2020 at 6:22:12 pm edt Washington DC, the moment in time that transit Mars pauses in order to turn retrograde (Rx). This significant event with warrior/pioneer/activist Mars strong in his own sign and stationing (which adds strength to any planet) suggests significant changes of direction in the affairs of Mars-ruled activities and events.

A close connection to male personages in general is also part of the Martian picture along with exploration, adventure, sports figures, military officers and troops. Additionally, police forces are involved as are negative possibilities such as blind zeal, destructive urges, impatience, quarrels and fights, ambitious projects, fevers, tummy upsets, headaches, and head injuries. Optimistically speaking, perhaps the pioneering spirit of Mars will lead to cures for what ails us during the Mars Rx period (September 9 to November 13, 2020), a time of review and reaction (exs: FDA approval; drug trials). Or perhaps the coronavirus contagion could go into a remission of sorts--at least during the Rx period of infectious Mars. And as you see in the chart below, the Virgo-Pisces victim-savior polarity is intercepted across the 1/7 axis (along with Virgo and Pisces placements) which suggests karmic issues that must be dealt with. But who needs Astrology to tell them this?

So once Mars reaches and moves past his 'shadow degree' of 28Ari08 (his September 9th Station Direct degree) on January 2, 2021 (see the Path of Mars listed, lower left on the chart, below) activities and projects begin forward movement with speedier outward and direct energy. For as you know, energetic Mars, planet of motivation, does prefer direct motion for all his activities and his focus is more easily channeled when moving direct.

Horoscope: Mars Station Direct @28Ari08 September 9, 2020; Disseminating; Hour of Mars; radical Uranus in earthy Taurus is unaspected (spurt-like behavior; separative or independent tendencies increase--Trump the Uranian?); both planets are posited in 2nd hou$e which is ruled by Mars as is the 9th house of Foreign Lands, Legal Affairs, Higher Education, and Philosophy; Sun @17Virgo, sign of health (7th house), Moon @12Gemini conjunct IC (The Public at Home) and Aldebaran (success through integrity); fighting Antares ('anti-Mars') conjunct Midheaven ('MC'); disbelieved prophetess Kassandra rises with Mirfak, a challenge-oriented star, while the Sun (vitality; ego) conjoins determined Sisyphus and health asteroid Panacea. See lower right for themes of the 4 North Solar Eclipse as restrictions within the Collective continue and strength and/or situations are misjudged by those in society who should know better and lead more effectively:

The rounded-up degree for Mars ('29Aries') has an interesting Sabian Symbol for our time in history (to me it seems late days although you're welcome to disagree). Here is Dane Rudhyar's interpretation:

"The Music of the Spheres": "Keynote: Attunement to the cosmic order.

The music of the spheres is the celestial embodiment of principles of polyphonic interplay. The individual advancing 'on the Path' should seek to understand and realize his place in the vast scheme of mankind's evolution, in the immense Chord of the harmony of the universe. The message to the seeker for meaning which is implied in this symbol is To Listen To The Inner Voice; to listen without personalizing this Voice in a glamour-producing manner. It is the Voice of the Whole, of which one begins to realize that one is a tiny little part--yet a significant part, for every note of the universal Chord has its place and its ineradicable meaning."

This symbol speaks of "a new realm of possibilities of action" and the "harmonic principles operating in this realm."

One quite rare factor listed on the chart is an exact septile (51degr:27mins) between The People's Moon and 6th house Venus, money planet of perspective and evaluation. (Ex: the recent awareness that members of the elite class put money over people couldn't possibly be a wake-up call for anyone but apparently it has been. And master astrologer Robert Wilkinson has termed the septile aspect, "The Grand Irrationality." The septile's appearance in the chart underscores our Collective feeling that humanity is 'at the crossroads of destiny' which relates to the interception of the Virgo-Pisces polarity in the chart which has karmic opportunity embedded within.

As for the comic weather of September 9, 2020, Sun Virgo-Moon Gemini is an Earth-Air blend which can get swamped with details yet is reasonable, rational, moody, studious, intellectual, and a mixture of pragmatic and playful. Writer and diplomat John Buchan (Lord Tweedsmuir) was born under these influences and once famously informed us that,

"An atheist is a man who has no invisible means of support." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Note: Obviously the above Sabian Symbol information reminds us all of Harmonics in Astrology!

US Venus Return June 2013: Saturn leads a locomotive pattern

US Venus returning to natal degree on June 5, 2013

by Jude Cowell

On June 3, 2013 at 11:10:39 am edt, White House, transiting Venus returns to her natal degree in America's 'Sibly' chart (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) of 3Cancer06. Having an approximate cycle of one year, Venus Return horoscopes tell how the year will proceed within the realms of Venus: relationship-partnerships-alliances, financial matters including monetary evaluation, diplomacy, art and music, social and cultural events.

As you know, Venus rules the principle of attraction (to and from) and in shrewd Cancer, America is attracted to Cancerian-Lunar concerns such as home and business, security needs, food supplies, parental and emotional concerns, creative endeavors, art, beauty, and finances (their supply or lack thereof--here, quirky disruptive Uranus @11Ari49 The Rebel is at a sensitive point in the 8th house of Corporations, Taxes, Debt, Credit, Death, Transformation, etc--near the 9th cusp.)

In any planetary return chart, the natal aspect or aspects of the planet under consideration is very important for interpreting the Return horoscope which in the case of Venus, 'looks ahead' about one year until Venus' next return to natal degree in 2014.

In America's natal 'Sibly' horoscope, Venus only applies to a conjunction with natal Jupiter @5Can56 ('6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests"--they certainly do) yet in our Venus Return 2013 horoscope, Venus has already moved beyond investing Jupiter (25Gem18.) Both planets are posited in Venus Return ('VR') 11th house of Groups, Associations, Hopes, and Wishes. Also, Venus rules VR 3rd house of Communications and the 10th house of Career and Public Status.

A Venus-Jupiter conjunction indicates generosity, optimism, and financial good fortune but may lead to indolence, laziness, and too much ease when effort is what's called for. Additionally, Venus rules the separative SN conjunct MC, a time when career moves may be thwarted, bad timing interferes, and old habits are out of sync with current trends--thus, recognition is slow in coming, if at all. Yet with the Nodal axis spotlighting the IC conj NN and 4th house of Domestic Scene, we may expect a few improvements to express there including in Real Estate.

Later in 2013, the 2013 Venus Return chart may tell us something of the financial stalemates in Washington DC which are virtually promised by the GOP-Tea Party with their anti-anything-Obama manner of sore-losership and weird ideology of Weishauptian dimensions, an ideology which includes a centuries-old plan for global governance and domination.

Our June 3, 2013 Venus Return Ascendant is @23Leo46 and thus the chart is ruled by the Sun @15Gem06 which makes no applying aspects to other planets at all. However, the Venus Return Sun does inconjunct NN showing a leader (Sun) and the public (NN) needing some type of adjustment between them in relation to Venusian issues. And since US natal Venus conjoins Fixed Star Mirzam (to have one's say--and VR Mercury @7Can55 conjoins out-spoken Mirzam, we may hear announcements concerning financial and/or diplomatic-pacts-alliances with the day of our VR 2013 showing a peak of such activities and events.

Yet naturally Venus and other planets transiting this return chart's planets and angles, plus, the perfection of return aspects, describe peaks of activity as well.

Now if we use the rounding-up method for America's natal Venus degree (3Can06) we find that the word picture or symbol for '4Can' is: "A Cat Arguing with a Mouse" and here is what Marc Edmund Jones says about this symbol:

"4Can" = JUSTIFICATION. Positive expression: a gift for persuading others to accept the motives of self and to co-operate with its ends"; Negative (unconscious/shadow side--jc) :interminable quarreling with the nature of things.

US Venus is looking at You, Capitol Hill-ers of a jackass persuasion!

Then there's the chart's locomotive pattern with Saturn Rx @5Sco39 in 3rd house. Power, genius, persistence, and prophecy are some of the gifts in a horoscope containing a locomotive pattern of planets. Karmic planet Saturn when in Scorpio has a 'survival of the fittest' vibe which points directly to Ayn Rand objectivists and the Social Darwinism that certain politicians wish to impose upon everyone but their exalted selves.

And with Taurus the Bull at MC (The Goal; MC 17Tau17)), we may expect the sign's shadow side of greed, bigotry, intolerance, and racism to continue arguing with the Venusian cat in the House on Capitol Hill when all the cat wants is a warm and cozy spot in the sunshine with perhaps a slice of apple pie as comfort food.

What may aid us is that locomotive Saturn emphasizes the protective Water Grand Trine between Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Neptune so that social and civic concerns are addressed if not entirely solved or improved. See my recent post on Summer Solstice 2013 for more details on the transiting Water Grand Trine with its Saturn-Neptune trine (120 degr) which favors those who work on secret projects such as military strategies and other government enterprises involving skillful analysis; social welfare is also spotlighted by Saturn-Neptune and progress can be made with their trine of opportunity--if no one interferes unduly.

Also at MC is the South Node (SN) of the Moon--and the Moon (We the People) is nearby as well, though on the 9th house side of Midheaven. Lady Luna @11Tau49 is in a fated septile aspect (51 degr) with Return Venus denoting possibly chaotic conditions, and VR Mars @3Gem41 in 10th house conjoins President Obama's natal Moon (3Gem21), a period when feelings lie close to the surface, anger may be expressed, and the pace of life picks up even more.

Well, these are a few considerations of America's next-up Venus Return which leads the list of America's 2013 planetary returns--here they are in order of occurrence; all natal positions are based on our nation's 'Sibly' horoscope of July 4, 1776:

1. June 5: Venus 3Can06

2. June 30: Mars Return 21Gem22

3. July 5: Solar Return 13Can19

4. July 22: Jupiter Return 5Can56

5. August 4: Mercury Return 24Can11 (August 4 is President Obama's birthday.)

Wishing for America and for you & yours many happy returns in 2013!

Ollie North asked about Rex 84 during Iran Contra hearings - video

This video from the Iran Contra 'hearings' shows Oliver North bristling and - pardon my French - clamming up his pie hole as Rep. Jack Brooks, a Democrat from Texas, questions him about his NSC work on the martial law provisions of FEMA to suspend the US Constitution and round up troublemakers during domestic emergencies of any kind which the government deems declarable as such.

The problem is these jolly days, we don't know the difference between emergencies and trumped up, sexed up emergencies! What they call 'false flag ops' are perpetrated only abroad, never here in hallowed America...or are they?

With Reagan on the lofty perch, came the auspiciously Orwellian year of 1984 when there appeared a plan named Rex 84. Almost as soon as Reagan was sworn in, he appointed Louis Giuffrida as head of FEMA. You'll hear the rest in the video, if you don't know it already. (And it was at 12:05 pm est on Jan 20, 1981 that Jimmy Carter says a secret agent whispered in his ear that the Iranian hostages had been released. Quite a busy few minutes, what?)

Anyway, view the video and check out Giuffrida's crazy syndicate eyes and the other-worldly expression on his gob. He could be a poster boy for the national Never Meet This Man in a Dark Alley campaign.

And So, Enter Dubya, stage right

Together with former and so-recent CEO/prez Bush's implementation of Directive 51, a number that conjures the karmic or fated septile aspect of chaos to my mind, the US government is preparing and alert, in order to protect itself from the American people who, forced into dire straits, may be lemming'd into behaving most any way FEMA officals, or their surrogates or bosses, deem conducive for successfully staging a military coup upon the United States of America.

Twisted justifications will follow, if there's anyone left to fool or impress.

Yucky to Think About, I Know

Just consider the number of military bases the US has established around the globe. Harken thee back to America's Progressed Mars (military; males; energy; action; initiative; drive), so recently turned retrograde 'by progression' - and thus we have developed (progressions) a tendency to turn inward (Rx) with the might and zeal of our nation's collective Mars. And we've become even sneakier than before!

Wonder if one day you'll remember reading these cautionary words when they are no longer available for anyone's perusal, or after you are no longer able to read them?

Yes, the zionists are closing the trap, m'peops. And this time, they intend to remain in control of earthly power for the duration.

Or until the trumpet blows. Whichever comes first.


From The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones:

'8 Pisces' = "A Girl Blowing a Bugle" = SUMMONS.

Positive expression: an eagerness for self-expression and an alertness to every opportunity for self-justification;

Neg/unconscious/shadow side: officiousness and a delight in regimentation. #

Yes. It's the shadow side of the 'official' US government (with its regimented soldiers) that I fret about.

I chose this Symbol because of my last comment about the trumpet blowing. But I just thought of something about the US natal chart...natal Ceres and the Chiron/Pluto midpoint are both positioned at '8Pis' in 1776, and you know about the oppressive, fascist racism, enslavement, and disenfranchisement of Chiron/Pluto, one of the primary significators of primal violence and plutocracy come to oppress.

Chiron/Pluto = Ceres Rx. (In Astrology, any retrograde body isn't necessarily weaker because of its Rx condition, it's deeper because it acts on inner levels.)

Plus, in national charts (Mundane Astrology), asteroid Ceres represents security needs, concerns, and issues. So I'd even wondered if the recent outbursts, the reputed gun concealment, and shoutings-down at townhall meetings are part of a set-up to rile the citizenry more quickly so that martial law may be imposed on schedule.

If so, it tells me that the GOP and others retain their ability to sway large numbers of the populace through emotions while not leaving so much as a claw print upon their hearts.

Bush, Harper, Calderone Summit

Bush Seeks to Boost Canada, Mexico Ties at a 2-day summit in Montebello, Quebec, today and Tuesday as these midpoint pictures form the background of the week:

Saturn/Uranus = Mars (conj asteroid Midas): tremendous upheaval possible through rebellion, overstrain, calamity, or anxiety about how things will get on; challenges leading to a fight (Tyl): injury; accident; deprivation of freedom; the wrong use of extraordinary energy (Ebertin.)

The pairing of Saturn (structure; form; old; the past) with Uranus (rebellion; disruption; shock; progress; the new) is always indicative of the tension and stress between old vs new which may lead to conflict and sometimes to violence, and there's an intervention in one's destiny flavor. Instigator and activist Mars has been mightily busy of late, hasn't he?

And with Mars at 6-8 Gemini this month puts me in mind of the last Great Conjunction/s of Neptune/Pluto, the Robber Baron team of the late 1890s...

1. Aug 2, 1891 8Gem38
2. Nov 5, 1891 8Gem19
3. Apr 30, 1892 7Gem42

This is when the real exploitation of natural resources and the oppression of the masses got its modern beginning not they hadn't before, of course. The Neptune/Pluto cycle lasts appr 492 years, and they are now in the septile phase (51:26 degr) of their slow dance. You'll find my post on the karmic Neptune/Pluto septile here, a 7th harmonic aspect.

Sad to say, the other difficult midpoint picture ongoing is explosive in the extreme:

Mars/Pluto = Uranus: tremendous energy; dangerous sense of attack; chip on the shoulder; fight first, talk later (Tyl); cruelty; violence; brutality; sudden disasters of great consequence (Ebertin.)

Weather-related catastrophes are included in these pictures, and the Saturn/Uranus/Mars combo certainly relates to mining collapses all over the globe from Utah to China, and to airplane explosions in Japan, etc. Boeing planes have been grounded there for inspections as an unaspected Uranus 'runs away' with current energies--yet Uranus is the focal planet in the Mars/Pluto midpoint picture, and is associated with electromagnetic weaponry, lightening, technology, and creative genius.

May the shuttle Endeavor's early return escape the violent influences of Hurricane Dean and of instigators of all stripes.

But back to Canada's 2-day summit:

Protesters have been out since yesterday prior to Bush's arrival for some Canadians see this 'partnership' as a threat to Canadian sovereignty being led by the US.

Agreed, but in this case it takes three to tango, my Canadian friends, for No Borders are respected by Chiron-Uranus Types in Government.

With PM Stephen Harper and Mexican president Felipe Calderon categorized as "conservatives" and "free trade advocates" (supposedly more so than their recent predecessors) it seems the North American Union globalist plans are grinding along nicely and with better shills now in place.

Imho, the clearest view of this devilish dissolving of the three nations is to be found at Patrick Wood's The August Review.

And it's not a pretty picture no matter how it's propagandistically framed...the class warfare of plutocratic Chiron-Pluto never is.
