Astrology of the president’s war escalation in Afghanistan

UPDATE Nov 30, 2009: am adding a quote from presidential candidate Barack Obama for those who say he didn’t ‘promise’ to end the illegally prosecuted war in Iraq:

“I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank.” Barack Obama, October 27, 2007

Well, a majority of American voters took his promise to election booths across the nation in Nov 2008, but when we took it “to the bank” in 2009, we found that hawkish neocon war profiteers had overdrafted our Peace Account and, as it turns out, they’d closed out President Obama’s trustworthiness with it.

Original post begins here:

‘Glee’ is on TV now so this is only a brief heads-up:

The horoscope for Dec 1, 2009 @ 8:00 pm est, West Point, NY is now published with notes concerning the TV address of President Obama on his decision for troop escalation in Afghanistan, if you’d care to check it out.

Lately WordPress doesn’t always allow me to tag my posts (like right now) so this heads-up will have to turn up by Category only. The above-linked article represents several hours of work so I hope it will.

  1. Jude… Thank you for your article, I just now read it. Loved your hand notations, allows us to see how you think, connect. I do want to point out how important this particular date is to the USA and its natal chart (I prefer the Virgo Rising chart). Just look to the degrees, conjunctions and oppositions only (axis), tight 3˚ orbs.

    The USA Sat is 14 Lib 47, West Point (WP) 4th cusp, USA Plu is 27 Cap 34 on WP Dec, USA Mer 24 Can 20 on WP S Node, USA MC/Ura 9 Gem on WP Moon and opp WP Sun, USA Nep 22 Vir 24 opp WP Ura, USA Moon 22 Aqu 36 conj WP Aqu stellium (Jup/Chi/Nep) and opp WP Mars, USA Ven 2 Can 43 opp WP Plu, USA Mar 21 Gem 09 opp WP Mer. With the 14 points you listed only WP Ven and Sat are not directly connected (wider orbs) to the USA chart by conj and opp only.

    Anyone who thinks this is not a key date has definitely not looked at the incredible array of very tight connections to the USA chart. Thank you for a job well don. Regards,

  2. You’re right: Barack Obama presented himself as ‘the anti-war’ candidate. He misrepresented himself.

    You and others wrote about the “new” administration’s beginning during a VOC, retro Merc timeframe. So escalating the war in Afghanistan cannot be a surprise.

    All that happened on Jan 20, 2009 at 12:06pm was that there was a fancy ‘costume change’ for the fellow speaking from the bully pulpit. The fundamentals stayed the same, and even the Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, was held over from the GWB admin.

    That did surprise me because it seemed so brazen. Now, nothing in the ‘news’ surprises me.

    (Following your example, I guess I need to start watching the T V show “Glee,’ too.)

    • Yes, a ‘costume change’ on Jan 20, 2009 – a ‘baton-pasing’ for continuing the path America has been shoved upon by neocon hawks of the Zionist persuasion. It’s sickening. No surprises experienced in this quarter, sad to say.

      Tonight’s presidential announcement of war escalation will be notable for the artful justifications it attempts to give the American people who are known to always need ‘a cause’ for bombing other countries, no matter how deceptive our leaders are.

      Thanks for your comment, Professor Higgins. And do watch Glee for a laugh! We’ll all be needing it. Jude

      ps: i’ve just published the natal chart of Afghanistan with Dec 1, 2009 transits to the chart here if you want to have a look. The country is now being strongly affected by the July 21/22, 2009 Solar Eclipse and will be again with the Jan 15, 2010 Solar Eclipse. 😦 jc
