Stars Over Washington: Wedding Day Astrology of Donald and Melania Trump


Lost Dudeist Astrology

If you check the Wikipedia page of Melania Trump you’ll find all I know about the current wife of 2016 candidate Donald Trump, the lady who may turn out to be America’s First Lady on January 20, 2016.

Check out a noon birth chart for Melania here with her practical Sun Taurus-Moon Capricorn personality.

Born Melanija Knavs (‘Melania Knauss’) on April 26, 1970 in Sevnica Slovenia, Yugoslavia, Melania has been a high fashion model with a degree in architecture who now designs jewelry. These endeavors resonate well with her Sun in Taurus, a creative sign of architecture (building) and good patterning ability. Now let’s peek at the Solar (male)and Lunar (female) description of their marriage which began under the auspices of January 22, 2005’s Sun Aquarius-Moon Cancer unless the ceremony was held prior to 6:00 am (with a late Gemini Moon)!

Sun AQ-Moon Cancer (Saturn-Uranus-Moon) is a very creative Air-Water…

Astrology: How Predictions Work

Neeti Ray writes on progressions:

Astrology Expressed

"Do you believe in fate or free will?" The answer that works for me: "Yes. I believe in both fate and free will." “Do you believe in fate or free will?”
The answer that works for me: “Yes. I believe in both fate and free will.”

This post is a result of a conversation I had with a friend about her astrology reading. She mentioned that her reading had indicated a positive event but it turned out that something very different happened. I don’t know the astrological details but I know the astrologer who did the reading. I highly respect his work: it’s astrologically sound, very precise and he operates with great integrity.

Astrology is Symbolic

Astrologers often mention that death charts have very good transits: especially that of Jupiter, the planet that bestows good fortune, indicates long journeys and expands our horizons. In the months leading upto his death, all through the radiation and the chemo, my husband had Jupiter transiting his twelfth house: the house of prisons and hospitals stays. The doctors…

And the Award for Best Financial Crisis Book …


The Baseline Scenario

… goes to Chain of Title, by David Dayen (with apologies to Jennifer Taub, Alyssa Katz, Michael Lewis, and many others, including my co-author, Simon Johnson).

Chain of Title isn’t primarily about the grand narrative of the financial crisis: subprime lending, mortgage-backed securities, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps, synthetic CDOs, the collapse of the global financial system in 2008, and the frenzied bailout that followed. Instead, it’s about foreclosure fraud: how mortgage servicers, banks, and the law firms they hired systematically broke the law to force people out of their homes. At the same time, it’s about securitization fraud: the fact that an untold number of securitizations were not properly executed, meaning that they violated the terms of their underlying agreements, meaning that their investors should have been able to force rescission of the entire deal.

The substance of the argument has been well known for years, so…

►Greek Mythology: “Narcissus and Echo” (Interpretation and Psychoanalytical Corollaries)⭐️.-

Another amazing article from @aquileana

⚡️La Audacia de Aquiles⚡️

narcissus and echo1


"Narcissus" by Caravaggio. 1597. “Narcissus” by Caravaggio. 1597.

guarda_griega1_3-1-1-1 (1)


The classic version of this myth is by Ovid, found inBook III of his Metamorphoses (Lines 339/508)

Echo was an Oread or Orestiad, meaning a type of nymph that lived in mountains, valleys, and ravines. The Oreads were associated with Artemis, the goddess of hunting.

Zeus used to  loved consorting with Goddess and nymphs. Hera, became suspicious, towards Zeus for his many affairs.

Though vigilant, whenever she was about to catch him, Echo distracted her with lengthy conversations.

When at last Hera realized the truth, she cursed Echo. To punish her, Hera took away her most valuable possession: her voice.

Hera permitted Echo only to reply in foolish repetition of another’s shouted words. Thus, all Echo could do was mimic the words of the speaker.

Sometime after being cursed, Echo spied a young man, Narcissus, while he was out hunting deer with his companions.

how to change a life

Kind thoughts from authorJonathan Winn:

Martuk ... the Holy

Interesting lesson I learned today: listening is important.

Let me explain.

Every day, come rain or shine, I take a walk through the nearby park. Shake the dust off. Get away from the computer screen and all those words, words, words I’ve been banging out since the sun came up. You know, just get out and clear my head.

And, on these walks, I’m known to take a moment — a small minute, really — to share a Hello or How are you with those somewhat familiar faces I see, come rain or shine, lingering around, lying on the grass, sleeping on the benches.

Now, granted, many (most? all?) of those faces are homeless and battling addiction and/or psychosis. And many, if not all, of them have been forgotten by those they loved because — and I’m guessing here — of the choices they made. Choices usually driven by addiction…

Facebook page: Love is Beauty, and Beauty is Truth

Georgia Guidestones info is included on the site, #Rosicrucians and their #NWO an alleged ‘utopia’ (which is a crock):

All On The Illuminati

Changing and healing the world starts within yourself.  I’ve realized that we are all connected—we all come from the same source, and we’re part of everything and everyone.

So any chance of peace in the world, starts inside. Viewing the world with the eyes  of LOVE rather then fear, is the solution , because when you’re at peace inside, you emanate peace outwards.

For that purpose, I made a facebook page which focus’ on love, inspiration, and beauty.

“Love is Beauty, and Beauty is Truth”…

Join me in doing our part in changing and healing our world:

Gramma Nettie spins wool

Beautiful yarn!

The Grandmother Club

And what else is new about that? So here is my latest example of grey Shetland wool which I carded, dyed using Country Classics colors, then blended on the drum carder. I don’t know how many stupid bats I did before I figured out what to do. I tried to stick with either warm or cool colors, but added a splash of the other for interest. The purple ended up quite nice. I took some of the same colors and spun long series of singles which I plied with the shorter series, creating a sort of fake fractal ply. Oh, I also added glitter!

This is the Batt ready to spin.

Here it is blended on the drum carder. I use a cat brush as the brush.

Partly spun. It does have a bit of VM

Spun, washed and fulled.

The warm colors With a touch of green

An Entrelac…
