Teddy Roosevelt on America’s Invisible Government

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”

Theodore Roosevelt, April 19, 1906

Well, the unholy alliance kept up its sorry fight these 105 years, didn’t it? Now we see how far the illuminized one-world-government/monarchist types have ‘advanced’ against We the People.

As you know, invisible (Neptune) government (Saturn) describes the fabled shadow or secret government of America which may be spied in our national horoscope by Saturn 14Lib48 and Neptune 22Vir25 (July 4, 1776.) In the Sibly version of the US chart (5:10 pm LMT), the Saturn/Neptune midpoint @ 3Lib37 crossed US natal Midheaven (the Goal/Aspiration/Public Status Point of any chart) about 3 years after 1776 by progression–during the American Revolution.

Is this when Britain took secret control of the US through the central banking system? I know what I believe but will allow you your own conclusions on the matter. Here’s the horoscope of Cornwallis’s Surrender which occurred at a time and date of Freemason George Washington’s choosing. (Planets of Inauguration 2009 are penned around the outside of the chart.)

An interesting midpoint picture forms:

Saturn/Neptune = MC: materialism v idealism; a peculiar character; losing courage quickly; using inefficient methods when tough, dedicated, complete work is needed; total capitulation to the demands of the environment.

Interestingly, America’s natal Uranus/Pluto midpoint @ 3Ari14 opposes its Saturn/Neptune midpoint, so with transit Uranus (planet of revolution, protests, strikes, upheavals, and explosions) now crosses and re-crosses our Uranus/Pluto midpoint which carries the revolution/protest vibes from their Great Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s in mid-Virgo (near US natal Neptune…new-age sciences; insecurity; unfulfilled wishes; fatigue; nervous conditions.)

So with tr Uranus triggering US natal Saturn/Neptune, what do we have? Excitability, inner unrest, a suddenly emerging weakness or illness, uncommon or unexpected recovery from weakness after a dormant period (okay!), indifference to decay in older buildings or structures (we know–the richest 1% would prefer more tax breaks, thanks.)

(Ebertin; Munkasey; Tyl; any, all, or none may apply.)

Historical Horoscopes!

On April 19, 1906, some applicable transits to US natal planets were in process:

1. Pluto to US natal Mars @ 22Gem (Mars = motivation, energy, action, weapons, military, police; men between the ages of 25–35, give or take a year)) marked a time when greater control and power were sought, and there was a single-minded approach to revenge and physical efforts; issues involve secrecy, danger, agression, conservation, research/development, and competition.

2. Pluto square n Neptune indicates that financial and political changes and restricitons were at odds with society’s prevailing spiritual values and ideals.

3/4/5. Neptune conjunct Sun, Venus, and Jupiter–issues of confusion, muddled identity, eroded integrity, fanaticism, and misguided motivations and actions (Sun); murky alliances, deception, obsession and paranoia (Venus); illusion + extravagance, intellectual snobbery, and get rich quick schemes (Jupiter.) Meanwhile…

6. Uranus opposed Sun, Venus, and Jupiter, a time of forced separations, unpredictable directions caused by ego, and challenges to leadership (Sun); unstable or unpredictable reactions to others may cause separations, and legal matters may be reversed or temporary (Venus); optimism or generosity may be wildly misplaced, professional advancement may turn out unfavorably, economic expansion is subject to change and instability (Jupiter.)

7. Saturn squared n Uranus marks a period when authority, tradition, and experience clash with future plans, and those who seek a New Order have a difficult time selling it–unlike in 2011 with powerful subversive, wealthy Pluto, The Dragon, now opposing our natal Venus, Jupiter–and, before too many more US elections are stolen–Sun, which represents ‘leadership’ or ‘the leader’ in Mundane Astrology, describing a contest of wills/no-compromise conditions for the president whose power may be transformed or even discontinued due to impotency–what Washington politicians now work to achieve in their attempt to prove that the world ‘needs’ a new world order to ‘deal’ with earth’s massive, self-created problems.

And that the US government no longer ‘works’ at all.

  1. Hi Donna! Got your comment at SO’W too but haven’t replied back (a busy week!) The Full Moon 19Tau falls in my 9th h but not planning any long trips ;p –actually, I’m working Friday. Yes, I know–i’m a real barrel of monkeys–must be all the Capricorn.

    As for 11.11.11, had planned a post on it but not certain I will–trying to complete post here on Herman Cain and tiring of hearing his name in the news…you? jc

“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…
