2008 Summer Solstice

with 6 comments

Take a peek at the 2008 Summer Solstice chart set for the White House, that little white lodge in DC:

There are two major closed-circuit planetary patterns–an Air Grand Trine with Mercury, but only if you count MC which has two asteroids upon it (Astraea, ‘law and justice’; Atlantis, ‘abuse of power; where we feel doomed; America; the New Atlantis~America~ or, putting them together, ‘abuse within court systems or policing policies are ramped up abusively’ is on display (MC.)

Also there is a YOD, or Finger of God, having feelings of fate and crisis with it and a special task to perform, and The Finger is pointing to Mars 23Leo42 in 8th house of High Finances and Transformations. I have a guess who this Mars may represent, although on other levels he may signify a generation of young men, warriors, policemen, firemen, transport drivers and pilots, etc.

Turns out that John McCain wants to go to Mars, too, along with Martian George Bush. Suits me, I’d donate a whole dollar to the enterprise (sorry, politicians…my dollar isn’t worth much anymore, but when it comes to the common good, neither are 99% of you.)

Well, I’m feeling puny today so I’ll mosey for now and hope you can successfully enlarge this image to read a few of my notes. My plan is to return pre-June 20 and add a few more details to this Page.

Your comments are welcome! And please leave links for Solstice articles, if you like.##

Update June 18: back to add a few more notes and I hope you’ll read the excellent comments below concerning the 2008 Summer Solstice chart.

One important factor is that Pluto has backed into moralistic Sagittarius once again so we may look for increase in Sunni-Shiite actions (in the news this morning actually) along with other religious fervor and mentions in the news. With Pluto first to rise there may be out-of-control concerns to deal with right off the bat concerning any Plutonian issues you’d care to name including those of the nuclear variety.

Pluto at “30Sag” = “The Pope Blessing the Faithful.” Perhaps the pope will  have surgery! Or send out a few assassins to promote the NWO agenda. (Did I just type that out loud?)

Saturn (control; restriction; authority; the old man) is in an obsessive-complusive quindecile aspect (165 degr) with North Node (NN: the path; destiny; public contacts; renown) so we have the wonderful Ricki Reeves to guide us on this connection in her book, ‘The Quindecile’:  thrust into renown because of one’s authoritative position; shares goals and ambitions with others; maternal influence may have been one’s strongest authority.

You’ll also notice that America’s natal Saturn is at MC along with the previously mentioned asteroids, one of which relates to courts, law, and justice (Astraea.)

The Uranus/Neptune midpoint (the New World Order duo, Conjunct 1993) is as 8Pis22, conj 3rd cusp of Communications–and conj US natal Ceres and the nation’s Pluto/Chiron midpoint.

The Moon 25Cap09 is about to turn into John McCain’s Moon Return and Venus 3Can14 is just before being America’s Venus Return. Uranus 22Pis39 is still in opposition to Barack Obama’s natal Mars and I wish it would quit that…I’ve fretted over it before so I’ll not do so here.

Pluto/NN = Moon: ambition is magnified. (Running for prez can do that.)

The YOD’s midpoint picture shows someone’s (Mars’) excessive ambition, self-aggrandizement, lack of control, along with a possibility of violence. That an attack (aka false flag op) may occur before the November elections (in order to sway voting) is never far from my mind and I wish all Americans safe, including our presidential candidates.

So my question about the next president is: do you want really more Cheney? Then vote McCain.Jan 20 2008 Summer Solstice

    • Ah yes we’re all novices, arent we?

      Those who think they aren’t are fooling themselves – you know like the “masters of the universe” who crashed the economic system. i suspect it may be some of that ‘Pride comes before a fall’ don’t you?

      Thanks for commenting, jude

  2. […] Check out Jude’s full treatment of the Summer Solstice here: https://judecowell.wordpress.com/2008-summer-solstice/ […]


  3. The Summer Solstice Chart – at Washington DC – looks suspiciously like ‘events’ may occur to ‘precipitate’ Martial Law with the heavy hand of the current administration out front, and those in the shadows calling the shots.

    It could happen.

    The power is truly in the ‘people’ – and with Pluto in the ‘end of its rope’ degrees of 28-29* Sag and then into Capricorn – everything will be in the balance. Mars will move for a while in trine with Pluto at this time. With Chiron, Neptune, and the Moon’s North Node conjunct in Aquarius, maybe the political will of the People will coalesce to provide the political will and throw off oppression.

    Neptune in Aquarius goes direct in motion on 11-02-08, just before the national election.

    I agree we are in for a rough ride.

  4. You are so right, Monica, thanks!

    Ah the many levels and layers of Astrology, the Onion past, present, and future.

    It’s the YOD pattern focused on Mars in 8th h–still the warrior if expressing in a Leonine way with all the baggage the Lion’s myths contain.

    I seem to lug around with me the baggage of a political astrology blog started in Oct ’05 where’er I blog! And with Gemini’s Mercury “young people” in Gem in 6th house of Health, it certainly supports what you say above about Mars in 8th house of Insurance, etc. and may indicate medical consulations.

    I’m very tender-hearted when it comes to children, so don’t get me started!

    Thanks again, Monica–you’re so excellent! And I prefer grilled veggies, if you’re sharing! ;p

  5. Jude — I read that Mars in Leo in the eighth house as being children or young people, not necessarily warriors, which I would equate more with Mars in Aries.
    With Neptune, North Node, and Chiron opposing the Mars in Leo, I could see a lot of concern about children’s health and getting kids away from video games, the Internet, and TV and outside to play (Mars in Leo).
    The concern about children being overweight is already out there, but I could see some kind of replay of the children’s fitness program of the 1960s. Also, there could be issues about vaccines or children who are uninsured. I think that eighth house in a national chart could have to do with insurance.
    Mars in Leo in the eighth could also pertain to the sexuality of young people. Maybe some kind of new contagious disease is out there.
    I like the Venus/Sun in the seventh house, even with an out-of-sign opposition from Pluto.
    Sun/Venus in the seventh — more emphasis on socializing at home with friends, families, and neighbors than traveling. “Come over to my house for a potluck barbecue!” is how I read this. Even though it’s in cost-conscious Capricorn, the Jupiter/Moon conjunction could also be about socializing at home, I think. So cheer up and fire up that barbie! — Monica
