Horoscopes: Jamestown Massacre and Its Solar Eclipse

leave a comment »

 
Two Historical Horoscopes

My Genealogy studies in the last couple of years have inspired quite a few History investigations for the two studies seem to go hand in hand. In fat, it would be difficult to search one’s Genealogy and family ties without History pushing in!

Here is a dual image of both the Jamestown Massacre (aka, the Powhatan Uprising) of March 22, 1622 which left approximately 500 European settlers alive, and the attack’s Prenatal Solar Eclipse @21Sco26 in the 2 Old North Saros Series which manifested on November 13, 1621:

J'townMassacrePE

Please enlarge the image if you wish to read my notes and you’ll see that the Vertex @22Sco15 (VX = fated encounter; death) of the Massacre chart (set for the historically traditional “a few hours after sunrise”, or in this case, a little before noon when “5 Capricorn” was on the Partnership angle–“Indians Rowing a Canoe and Dancing a War Dance” in the Sabian Symbols) points toward the degree of the November 1621 Solar Eclipse with its influential themes of: ‘unfortunate news concerning friends and/or relations; separations or endings of unions; but fast action can bring positive results’ (paraphrasing Brady’s Predictive Astrology).

The ‘positive results’ represent to me the ‘fast action’ taken during the night by ‘ancient planter’ Richard Pace who was forewarned by an Indian lad living in his household and who paddled the James River in order to warn as many planters and settlers as he could of the imminent attack meant to wipe them out and thus saving hundreds of lives of his friends and relations.

And note that deceptive loss-bringer Neptune, planet of waters and oceans, is apex of a YOD pattern (crisis; turning point) and is positioned @16Libra with its Sabian Symbol of “A Boat Landing Washed Away.” To me this relates to boat landings on the James and other rivers, plus, the landings of ships in Chesapeake Bay (1607) upon which European settlers sailed in order to establish Jamestown Colony, a settlement which was indeed nearly ‘washed away’ by the March 22, 1622 Indian attack.

Sep 3, 2017 Mercury activates August Solar Eclipse

For those who may be interested, September 3 (tomorrow) finds transit Mercury, planet of communications, ideas, travel, trade, investigations and negotiations activating the degree (28Leo32:56) of The Great American Eclipse which manifested on August 21, 2017 and landed upon Trump’s natal Ascendant (ASC = physical body–you remember Mr. Trump looked at the eclipse 6 times without safety glasses!) which brings him right on into the eclipse picture big time.

If you wish, do check out today’s Stars Over Washington post which displays the Mercurial Sept 3rd horoscope set for the White House, Washington DC:

Sept 3, 2017 Mercury to August Solar Eclipse Degree

Also let’s add here a bit of info on Sept 3rd’s Sun Virgo-Moon Aquarius blend, an Earth-Air combo of rationality, objectivity, and efficiency. Adroit with language, Earth-Air blends use slang to good effect, are masters of understatement, and tend to be down-to-earth types who may neglect the emotional side of life and run the risk of becoming “dry as dust.”

Rebellious yet reliable, dispassionately critical, Sun Virgo-Moon AQ folk are shrewd, principled intellectuals, reformers, and are idealistic.

To close, here are three insightful quotes from famous people who were born under Sun Virgo-Moon AQ:

“No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.” Margaret Sanger.

“If the world does not please you, you can change it.” H.G. Wells

And last, but definitely not least:

“The real lost souls don’t wear their hair long and play guitars. They have crew cuts, trained minds, sign on for research in biological warfare, and don’t give their parents a moment’s worry.” J.B. Priestley.

The Yin and the Yang of our Days

An intriguing visit well recorded!

Zeebra Designs & Destinations

Can you see Hotel Andino down there?

“In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.”     -J. Krishnamurti

Quito Ecuador – This past week Miguel, owner of Hotel Andino, sent an email to warn me to expect ‘something different’ for my one-night stay.   When I arrived, Miguel explained that they were full with an out-of-town group of business people, but there was one option.  He seemed hesitant, and I said that I loved surprises –“… Show me the space!”

We went into the main part of the house, and I wondered where in the world an extra room could be, and then we stepped toward a petite door located beneath the staircase.  …

Debunking the National Eclipse

Correcting eclipse fallacies and some good advice!

NATIONAL ECLIPSE BLOG

debunked (Eclipse photo by Luc Viatour / http://www.Lucnix.be)

(Need eclipse gear for August 21? Visit the NationalEclipse.com eclipse store.)

In our last post, Staying Safe on August 21, we called attention to the fact that the media sometimes inadvertently provides incorrect or dangerous information about how to safely view a solar eclipse. Needless to say, this is a disturbing pattern because so many people never think to verify or fact check what they read or hear in the news. Unfortunately, that blind faith can lead to irreparable eye damage on August 21. But the media, and people in general, also make other kinds of factual mistakes and false assumptions when it comes to the subject of solar eclipses. Some of these errors are the result of long-held beliefs; others are simply due to an innocent mistake that quickly spreads and propagates online. Although these mistakes don’t necessarily put anyone in danger, they do…

FBI Seize Smashed Hard Drives From Crooked Wasserman Schultz

Tragically we have an infiltrated Congress (in more ways than one):

Nwo Report

FBI agents have seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT aide.

According to two sources within the bureau, Pakistani-born Imran Awan, right-hand IT aide to the former DNC Chairwoman, had persistently tried to prevent the FBI from obtaining the hard drives.

Dailycaller.com reports: An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi…

A New Economic Vision, in 27 Words

With this I can agree:

The Baseline Scenario

By James Kwak

A couple of weeks ago I posted a 6,000-word essay laying out a new economic vision for the Democratic Party. It kind of vanished into the ether, although Stephen Metcalf was kind enough to say this:

So here it is, in 27 words:

All people need a few basic things:

  • An education
  • A job
  • A place to live
  • Health care
  • A decent retirement

Let’s make sure everyone has these things.

If you want more, there is always the long version.
