August 28, 2013: “Let freedom ring” if it must

As you’ve heard, Wednesday August 28, 2013 is the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech in which he called for freedom to ring. Some say that President Obama seeks an MLK Moment: see http://swampland.time.com/2013/08/25/on-50th-dream-anniversary-obama-seeks-mlk-moment/ as he stands in Dr. King’s shadow on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to deliver his own speech. Will his 2013 rhetoric echo that of Rev. Martin Luther King in 1963?

3:00 pm edt is the “Let Freedom Ring” instant that will be celebrated in tandem with ringing bells across the globe by participating locations. With a shout-out to dreamy Neptune, you may wish to check out today’s Stars Over Washington post concerning cosmic differences and similarities between the two dates and speeches by clicking here: http://www.starsoverwashington.com/2013/08/i-have-dream-aug-28-1963-vs-aug-28-2013.html (synastry grid shown).

Among others, Presidents Obama, Clinton, and Carter will speak this Wednesday in commemoration of the event’s 50th anniversary, reports the King Center: http://www.thekingcenter.org/news/2013-08-excitement-builds-commemoration-50th-anniversary-march-washington-mlk-s-i-have-dream

Now on August 28, 1963 an Earth-Fire combination of energies of Sun Virgo-Moon Sagittarius (Mercury-Jupiter) was in effect with its sense of moral certitude, ability to perceive the essentials, and the desire for reasonable answers in the face of human suffering. Yet the blend’s expansive Sagittarian dream had to be brought down to pragmatic proportions though a majority of the American people didn’t and don’t care at all for the way it was perpetrated–by Dr. King’s martyrdom.

The blend for August 28, 2013 retains a Virgo Sun, of course, but becomes an Earth-Air combo of Sun Virgo-Moon Gemini with both signs ruled by speech-making, message-delivering Mercury, the Orator. Sun Virgo-Moon Gemini denotes tendencies toward chatty communications, use of logic, and correct analysis though a leaning toward pessimism should be kept under control.

One difference between the speeches may be based primarily upon 1963’s fiery flights of fancy (‘a dream’) vs the cooler, more rational approach of President Obama, our Orator-in-Chief. And if our current president has a dream, my fret is that it tallies too perfectly with the global government totalitarianism that is now being forced upon the nations and peoples of the world.

For those who’ve asked: yes, my 12-year US Jupiter Return Report remains available for downloading and printing by visiting the PayPal button in the sidebar of Stars Over Washington!

As you know, Jupiter is one of the primary planets implicated in matters of corporatism, globalism, and all types of broadened horizons and with America’s natal Ascendant in *Sagittarius, freedom-loving Jupiter is prominent in our nation’s birth horoscope and national psyche so it’s always a good idea to keep our eyes on Jupiter’s interactions with the US natal chart and planets, its transits to our newly minted Jupiter Return horoscope (as of July 22, 2013), and its affects on other planetary actors.

*Using US natal horoscope for July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA (ASC 12Sag) though other versions are useful as well. The main reason I use the ‘Sibly’ Sag Rising chart is because it had transit Pluto conjunct ASC (Self) and transit Saturn conjunct our DESC (Partnerships) on 9/11/01. And you know what the cruel, controlling Saturn-Pluto opposition brought–permanent change to America’s character and people and an undermining of the US Constitution.

Aug 6 2013 New Moon: Sun Leo-Moon Leo

“Was this then how youth, how life should truly be? No endless poring over books and dusty manuscripts, but acting out the glory of the word made flesh? Such tenderness! Such breathless apprehension of the mystery in things! And afterwards, such peace!”

Lindsay Clarke, The Chymical Wedding (1989)

Sun-ruled Leo, sign of fire and romance, spoons our plates with a double helping today: a Leo New Moon perfecting at 5:51 pm edt after which the Moon becomes void-of-course until the evening of August 7th (Ramadan ends).

A Sun Leo-Moon Leo blend is magnetic, demonstrative, and visionary with a single-minded view and a flair for showing its best side though it can be moody at times. The quote above from The Chymical Wedding is chosen because Leo-Leo is the natal personality blend of author Lindsay Clarke.

Vanity and passion combine along with a self-centered streak and a tendency toward throwing temper tantrums, all of which may describe the personalities of the book’s main characters as well as its author!

Here are the ‘Images for Integration’ for the Sun Leo-Moon Leo blend from Charles & Suzi Harvey’s Sun Sign-Moon Sign (the Images may remind you of a certain prince recently born–and rather curiously, this Sun-Moon blend is shared natally by British actress Barbara Windsor):

“A child in an Edenic paradise builds a beautiful sandcastle in the sunshine with all the creatures of nature in joyous attendance…In full pageantry, the new king is crowned before his kingdom.”

Wishing everyone a joyous and safe New Moon of new beginnings!

Threat level up as Jupiter returns to 9/11/01 chart

August 2013: An Astro-Peek at Activations of the 9/11/01 Horoscope

by Jude Cowell

As you’ve heard, the US government is reporting an increase in terrorist “chatter” as the 12th anniversary of the WTC attacks of 9/11/01 approaches. This year marks the first Jupiter Return to the 9/11 horoscope for Jupiter’s cycle is 12 years in duration.

See Threats Against Embassies Very Reminiscent of Pre-9/11 Chatter.

On the morning of September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am edt NYC, monied Jupiter was posited in 9th house of Foreign Lands and Philosophy @11Can35 and carried the Sabian Symbol, “A Chinese Woman Nursing a Baby with a Message”, a word picture I attempted to illustrate a few moons ago. View the image here if you wish.

Naturally the symbol’s reference to our creditor China and to a ‘message’ is intriguing especially since it attaches to 9/11’s position of Jupiter the Banker–in the 9th house of foreigners. This is not to leave out Middle Eastern or other actors on 9/11/01 but to focus on Jupiter since the Great Benefactor now returns to the natal position he held on that game-changing morning.

Actually, Jupiter’s retrograde in Cancer later this year creates a “three-fer” of returns to the 9/11 natal degree with the first return occurring on August 18, 2013, the second on February 7, 2014 (Rx), and the last return on April 2, 2014. This extended return period indicates a prolonged season of concerns involving terrorism with increased threat levels on into 2014, and it has Jupiterian financial implications as well though effects may be of a stop-go nature.

Raising the threat level makes sense and yet…will the “more chatter” situation be used in an attempt to justify intrusive NSA surveillance programs and leave them as they stand–even those used against the privacy of the American (and other) people who have nothing at all to do with terrorism? If we begin to hear politicians and pundits spouting such equivocations, perhaps we’ll be pardoned for having our suspicions if any attack/s occur–or are thwarted–by America’s total surveillance prowess.

Well, it’s somewhat confusing to hope (a Jupiter word!) that this is or isn’t the case since our
distrust of the US government
is also at high levels (or depths!) and this may cause any violent attacks relating to 9/11/01 or otherwise appear as much like a false flag op as the original event still seems to many who doubt the ‘official version’ of 9/11/01.

(And tell me again: exactly why was NORAD shut down the morning of 9/11/01?)

Another consideration with astrological Jupiter is that he expands and increases whatever he contacts or is involved with–positively or negatively–and the added challenge of transit Pluto in Capricorn opposing 9/11’s Jupiter (and the two planets combined = big bankers, influential politicians, those who mount large-scale projects, and/or powerful religious leaders)–and US natal Jupiter (5Can56)–denotes limiting conditions, commercial and/or trading difficulties, and a potential for travel interruptions occurring off and on.

Also, Jupiter loves freedom as does Uranus and right now, transit Uranus @12Ari07 Rx (a critical-crisis degree) squares (90 degr) 9/11’s Jupiter denoting rebelliousness against restrictions (one signature of Gitmo and other prison breaks, plus, political cat-herding in Washington), dissatisfaction with political views in or of society, and a distinct potential for erratic or misplaced generosity.

Add in the fact that transit Saturn now in early Scorpio (sign of Big Business, debt, surveillance, the occult, death and regeneration, transformation, betrayal, etc) will soon enter the 2nd house of Earning Ability and the National Treasury in the 9/11/01 horoscope–and eventually visit 9/11’s Pluto (@12Sag38, America’s natal Ascendant in the ‘Sibly’ chart) which happens to conjoin 9/11’s 3rd cusp of Communications and Short Trips. This transit denotes a time of power issues and the loss of control over situations which were just too big to begin with.

To me, Saturn-to-Pluto conjunct US natal ASC sounds rather like the gargantuan and rights-abusing US surveillance system with its frilly underpants recently yanked down a mite by former NSA employee Edward Snowden…that, and our corrupt-to-the-core financial system of Too Big To Fail banks, plus, the highly rigged casino we call, Wall Street.

Now isn’t wearing saggy pants now illegal in some states?

Oh, and one more thing: 9/11’s 2nd cusp mentioned above has an appropriate Sabian Symbol when its degree (11Sco28) is rounded up to ’12Sco”: “An Embassy Ball”.
