The Assassination of JFK, Jr (video)

It’s unusual that I post such a controversial video on this particular blog but I’m feeling unusual on this Monday. The following 109-minute presentation contains opinions and information from its creators and does not necessarily conform to the views of this blogger:

JFK Assassination: Sun Sco-Moon AQ

A fresh look has been taken of the Nov 22, 1963 JFK assassination with particular attention paid to the day’s Sun in Scorpio–Moon in Aquarius, and including notes on the 1 North Pre-Natal Eclipse Series during which the heinous event was perpetrated.

Check it out, if you’re interested.

Update Oct 30, 2009: here’s a 1963 Truman quote written in a letter to WaPo soon after the JFK assassination. I’m not certain I believe Truman here since, as many have said before me: nothing that happens in Politics is an accident – if it happens you can be sure it was meant to happen. “Never had any thought”, Harry? Come on!

And ‘nothing is an accident in Politics’ includes the current ‘leak’ from a panel aide’s computer of Ethics Committee documents on who is Congress is being investigated for possible violations!

Well, here’s Harry come back to call:

“For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the government….I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations.”

-President Harry Truman, in a letter to the Washington Post, one month after the JFK assassination, December 21, 1963

Remembering Alexander Litvinenko

In 2007, not long after I posted quite a few entries concerning the November 2006 poisoning of Russian spy and defector Alexander Litvinenko, my articles became invisible to the general public on my Political Astrology blog even though the posts were set for Public Viewing.

Later on, when I realized the extent of the mysteriously invisible posts which were still not displaying, I published a shout-out with a Links List to the missing articles and I hereby do so again in memory of a man who, though imperfect, didn’t deserve such a miserable end by an assassin’s hand – or by a president’s order.

Note: some of the posts do include my astrological comments and anaylisis but not to fret – they’re written in English.

Vince Foster

A new Category ‘Assassinations and Crimes’ has been added in the sidebar with its first and only listing on the Vince Foster murder and subsequent cover-up.

And the current Mercury (news; reporters; bloggers; announcements, etc) retrograde period is covering and recovering the ‘1 Gemini’ degree – the degree of Mr. Foster’s murder’s Solar Eclipse Series, the 13 South, which occurred on May 21, 1993. In other words, his murder occurred under the auspices of the 13S Eclipse Series.

Vince Foster was murdered (perhaps inside the White House) on July 20, 1993 after giving Linda Tripp the rest of his M&Ms and assuring his secretary that he would return soon.

The legend is that he had a meeting scheduled with Pres. Clinton for the next day – to resign. Bill was on TV with Larry King, but Hillary, from Arkansas, spoke with a White House denizen just prior to Foster’s office being cleared out of incriminating evidence.

There is no White House Security record of Foster’s leaving the White House under his own steam (it would have been on record) and his remains were found later in Fort Marcy Park in an ‘arranged’ position. Firearms appear and disappear with this case, so you may want your notepad handy.

Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’ gives the 13S Series as expansive energy but with a sinister flavor underneath; striving for group endeavors either positively or negatively; possible constitutional crisis.

13S next manifests at ’11Gem’ on June 1, 2011. Will new evidence come to light on the Vince Foster case around that time? Will Hillary Clinton’s Rose Law Firm days be exposed as her heyday palling around with Rosicrucians?

Will Venus, whose totem flower is the rose, have her fatal flaw – her jealous vengeance – exposed so the whole world can see it in its full and ugly measure like a Medusa Head of Politics, snakes and all?

At the least, we may expect similar issues to come to the fore as mentioned above for 13S…with a sinister flavor undergirding.

And now a quote from President Harry Truman on secret power brokers:

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the US, in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.”

– ‘The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People.’

Some of those ‘powers’, our contemporaries, are meeting May 14 – 17, 2009 near Athens, Greece. And in this form they call themselves…the Bilderberg Group.

Abraham Lincoln’s 200th anniversary

Yes, it will soon arrive, the 200th anniversary of the birth of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln.

There is much to say on the subject of his inaugurations and on his assassination by actor, John Wilkes Booth, and I am currently studying the Inauguration charts for 1861 and 1865.

But for now I shall point you to the sidebar column of Pages for  ‘Abraham Lincoln: natal + assassination chart’ which I have updated today with an article link to Byron King’s assessment of Booth, Booth’s grudge against tyrants and Mr. Lincoln, and the horrific proceedings which occurred a mere month after Lincoln’s second inauguration on March 4, 1865.

As you know, Lincoln was inaugurated back in the day when US presidential inaugurations were held in early March, thus the Sun in mid-Pisces was conjunct a difficult star, Achernar…keywords: ‘risk of rapid endings; crises.’

In 1861, Sun 14Pis11 (‘the leader’ in a national chart; and Moon = ‘the people’) was conjunct wounded Chiron 14Pis34 at the inauguration’s Midheaven. 

Chiron in *Pisces is a poster child for race relations and racism – and for being a victim on behalf of the collective, but of course Chiron was an unknown factor in Astrology until it’s discovery in November 1977.

Moon 16Gem38 is in the secretive 12th house conjunct warring activist Mars 17Gem15; rebellious chaos-creator Uranus 25Gem25 had just risen (at noon of Mar 4, 1865; Washington DC); ASC 2Can41 brought US natal Venus to the fore (based on US natal chart, ‘Sibly’ version) along with planet Venus’ issues such as: relationships, art-theater-aesthetics, money, and values.

My plan for the next several days is to publish both inaugural charts of Abe Lincoln  (1861 and 1865) – prior to Feb 12 – at Stars Over Washington, and the feed for the post will appear in the sidebar column here when I get the project done.

So I hope you’ll check out Byron King’s article – it’s definitely worth a read – and I’ll see you on the come-back!


Note: scroll down for the text of Lincoln’s second inaugural address which is linked on this blog under ‘Speeches’ – the address is one that Barack Obama studied before giving Jan 20, 2009’s inaugural address.

*Pres. Obama’s natal Chiron is in Pisces.

UPDATE Feb 11 2009: now published at Stars Over Washington (see feed in sidebar) –  the Inauguration 1861 chart with notations added of the 1865 Inauguration, Lincoln’s natal planetary placements, and America’s natal placements, too.

America after King’s assassination

Robert Ellman has published a great feature concerning Clay Risen’s book, ‘A Nation On Fire: America in the Wake of the King Assassination’ which you may wish to check out:


The period of time between LBJ’s refusal to run for president in 1968, Dr. King’s assassination, and the signing by LBJ of the Civil Rights Act,  are more fully covered than usual by Mr. Risen, a former editor of The New Republic.

Riots broke out within hours after MLK’s death: the US Army occupied three major American cities, our National Guard patrolled a dozen others, and looting – one of the traditional yet ineffectual refuges of the disenfranchised – was rampant.

Plus, Clay Risen is founder of ‘Democracy: A Journal of Ideas’ which may be accessed here:


And you may wish to view an image of Dr. King’s natal chart with a few details which I published in Jan 2008 in honor of MLK Day which is upon us once again tomorrow, Monday, Jan 19:


Personally, I will be using MLK Day as a Prayer Day for America and for the American people who could use some extraordinary help  after the 8-year dredging we’ve gotten from the Bush-Cheney regime!

To paraphrase what Barack Obama keeps saying: he can’t do it all by his lonesome…now we all have ‘skin in the game’…and the color of that skin is emphatically Not the Point!

“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…
