Autumn Equinox on the way: meet me in September?

The process of blurbing on the Autumn EQ 2008 horoscope has begun. See the EQ chart set for the White House with more chart details to follow:


Bombs over Orwell 1941

Here are three timely quotes from Orwell, Stamp, and Cicero, compliments of the Information Clearing House Newsletter:

“As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead trying to
kill me. They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I
against them. They are only doing their duty, as the saying goes. Most of
them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law-abiding men who would never
dream of committing murder in private life. On the other hand, if one of
them succeeds in blowing me to pieces with a well-placed bomb, he will never
sleep any worse for it. He is serving his country, which has the power to
absolve him from evil.”  George Orwell London. UK. 1941
“Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers *own the
earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits,
and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it
back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like
mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier
and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of
Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create
deposits.”  Sir Josiah Stamp (1880-1941) President of the Bank of
England in the 1920’s, the second richest man in Britain
“Endless money forms the sinews of war.” : Marcus Tullius Cicero –
(106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator




*bankers only THINK they own the earth! quote from jc

From Bernanke to Fannie to the IMF in between, don’t miss this valuable resource, compliments of The August Review and editor Patrick Wood:


Patrick also offers comprehensive articles on the ‘amero,’ a possibility which seems finally to have bubbled up into consciousness for a larger number of people than before as the amero’s supposed implementation date approaches.

Now I’m not positive, but this may qualify as a ‘sighting’ for with ‘amero’ awareness and its planning because there’s a chance we may have spotted that pesky Eagle soaring again, and higher than ever before -most drattedly, imo.

Because it’s when The Flag Turns INTO an Eagle That Crows (which is normally done by a Rooster, as you know, so we may prefer to remember that roosters can’t change their true natures anymore than the proverbial leopard can morph into a striped tiger) – that’s when giving oneself over to an entity is just as bad an idea for a western military man as it is for anyone not in complete control of his/her mind who is sent out to harm as many people as possible…and don’t return without having done so.

May as well call it, mind control – by an entity, cause, or mission being directed by a life-destroying, future-annilating spirit. Robespierre cultured it, Hitler reveled in it, as did many more psychopaths you’d care, or not care, to name. Well, I agree with you – let’s not.

Guess I may as well insert a drawing of a tiger, Predator at Dusk, which is a re-design of a 1983 drawing. The original, rendered on white paper, was rediscovered a couple of years ago in an old sketchbook and I then ‘translated’ a similar version onto black paper as you see, using the same sort of colored pencils – Prismacolor oils and Rexel Derwent watercolours dry only.

You may have seen this image before somewhere but here is the result of my efforts plopped upon this blog for anyone determined to reach the end of this rambler in case loose tangents may tie up at last.

So that, dear reader, is what the devouring spirit is – a heathen and primal spirit that roams our fallen world and searches for any prey he can snag. And since he’s already lost the eternal competition, his desire is to take as many down with him as he goes.

Sad to say, I can think of little better real-world example of this spirit’s cynical and cruel use of humankind than suicide bombers.

Can you?

In ‘The Sabian Symbols in Astrology,’ Dr. Marc Edmund Jones’ version, he gives “A Flag That Turns into an Eagle That Crows…for ’12 Sagittarius’, which is the natal Ascendant (rising sign and degree) of America if you don’t mind using the so-called ‘Sibly’ chart, as…ADJUSTMENT…

positive: successful self-establishment through genuine self-expression;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: idle prejudices and unsubstantiated claims.” ~

The opposite word picture for this degree, (using US Sibly Descendant of Partnerships; Open Enemies; the ‘That’s Not Me’ 7th house  – and as you know, the US always seems to need one or two enemies around or on-call 24/7)  – ’12 Gemini’ gives more unconscious symbols when read as the *Illumination Point where much ‘shadow’ information may be found.

’12Gem’…’A Topsy Saucily Asserting **Herself’…GROWTH…

pos: a high gift for taking personal advantage of every new situation in experience;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: a joy in pure dissatisfaction.’

~:~  ** in the Symbols, ‘herself’ refers to the feminine side of human nature, ‘him-‘ to the masculine…we all have both within, and one day our world’s duality will be moot and like a fish with an apple – of no use whatsoever.

You will, no doubt, ferret out meaning from this Illumination Point with its Topsy, perhaps as it relates to the AC-DC quality of considering a point in a mandala we call in modern times an Astrology chart or horoscope, while giving weight to this degree’s Desc position in America’s natal chart, or as an Unconscious Ascendant for the old girl herself.

*In fact, if you’ve never studied your own ‘shadow chart’ by reading a ‘flipped’ version, you’re missing out on some really cool, unconscious scoops concerning your psyche.

As Scripture and many other sacred writings counsel us: Know Thyself.

And I believe that a positive use of Astrology, which is a language in which to put Harmonics and other universal concepts for an energy step-down…much like an electrical transformer on a county road – Astrology is perhaps the best path toward a fuller understanding of that elusive and mysterious jungle cat – slinky you who are now reading these words.

Please all you cats’n’kitties – do stay safe tonight.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
