New Moon December 7, 2018

DC Horoscope: New Moon @15Sag07 December 7, 2018 2:20:15 am est White House Washington DC; Hour of the Moon (fluctuations; changes) with Venus in Scorpio rising in 1st house and leading a BOWL shape of the planets, emphasizing the lower hemisphere, and denoting signs Taurus through Libra as representing “challenges to existence” (The Guide to Horoscope Interpretation, M. E. Jones).

Taurus through Libra includes several of Mr. Trump’s natal planets, plus his natal Midheaven with nasty Algol conjoining @24Taurus. Gemini, of course, includes Trump’s natal Uranus-NN-Sun trio; Cancer includes his nibs’ Venus-Saturn conjunction, Leo includes his natal Mars and Ascendant (conjunct royal Regulus), and Libra brings in his problematic Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter trio of fantasy, schemes, and speculation (see chart, upper right–this trio is rising along with America’s natal Saturn @14Lib48, followed symbolically by US SP Mars Rx @18Libra (SP = Secondary Progressed–our Mars regressed and turned inward against ourselves since 2006).

This difficult, weakening condition for US Mars the warrior lasts until 2086 and tragically describes unlawful shootings by police against citizens, the ongoing crises of students vs students, parents vs children and vice versa, citizens arming up, death cults, and other violent events on US soil. That transit Neptune now floats through its own sign of murky Pisces only confuses issues, masks fraud and deception, and engenders contagions of fear and paranoia in the population.

New Moons Seed and Begin a New Cycle of Activity

As for December 2018’s double Fire Sun Sag-Moon Sag combination of conscious-unconscious energies, it’s the ‘comedian-preacher’ blend suggesting optimism, questing minds, and faith in the future as befits sign ruler Jupiter. Insincerity, cruelty, and corruption are unbearable for Sun Sag-Moon Sag folk who are full of good advice and need ‘fun’ and adventure within their relationships. And if memory serves, comedian Jon Stewart was born under it! Also born with this personality blend: Ludwig van Beethoven and philosopher-physicist Max Born. Here are two quotes, one from each:

“Give happiness and joy to many other people. There is nothing better or greater than that.” – Beethoven.

“Intellect distinguishes between the possible and the impossible.” – Max Born.

Sep 3, 2017 Mercury activates August Solar Eclipse

For those who may be interested, September 3 (tomorrow) finds transit Mercury, planet of communications, ideas, travel, trade, investigations and negotiations activating the degree (28Leo32:56) of The Great American Eclipse which manifested on August 21, 2017 and landed upon Trump’s natal Ascendant (ASC = physical body–you remember Mr. Trump looked at the eclipse 6 times without safety glasses!) which brings him right on into the eclipse picture big time.

If you wish, do check out today’s Stars Over Washington post which displays the Mercurial Sept 3rd horoscope set for the White House, Washington DC:

Sept 3, 2017 Mercury to August Solar Eclipse Degree

Also let’s add here a bit of info on Sept 3rd’s Sun Virgo-Moon Aquarius blend, an Earth-Air combo of rationality, objectivity, and efficiency. Adroit with language, Earth-Air blends use slang to good effect, are masters of understatement, and tend to be down-to-earth types who may neglect the emotional side of life and run the risk of becoming “dry as dust.”

Rebellious yet reliable, dispassionately critical, Sun Virgo-Moon AQ folk are shrewd, principled intellectuals, reformers, and are idealistic.

To close, here are three insightful quotes from famous people who were born under Sun Virgo-Moon AQ:

“No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.” Margaret Sanger.

“If the world does not please you, you can change it.” H.G. Wells

And last, but definitely not least:

“The real lost souls don’t wear their hair long and play guitars. They have crew cuts, trained minds, sign on for research in biological warfare, and don’t give their parents a moment’s worry.” J.B. Priestley.

August 15, 2015 Notice to Readers of Jude’s Threshold

Hi All! Just a note really to advise subscribers and other readers that the web address of Jude’s Threshold has this evening been reverted to https://judecowell.wordpress.com  due to yours truly having limited blogging time this year into next. As always, my focus must be Stars Over Washington and will be directed in the coming weeks to creating articles about political events such as Campaign 2016 (often using the excellent lens of Astrology to peek behind the curtain!), to writing new Stars Over Washington Reports (2015–2016), plus, setting up a plan to once again offer natal and other astrology reports digitally delivered, each report with my notes attached, along with a phone session for those who request it.

In the coming weeks, full details will be published in the sidebar of Stars Over Washington and reports may be ordered from there as well so I hope you’ll drop by when you can in case there’s a topic or two you may wish to investigate with me, novice astrologer and former resident of Washington DC as I am. Do note that mystical, cosmic, and esoteric subjects may appear on SO’W along with article links and video clips which concern Politics, Society, Astrology, Star Lore, Astronomy, Archaeology, and quite a bit more.

Meanwhile, here on Jude’s Threshold I shall happily continue to post as and when my schedule permits (I love WordPress!) and will continue to re-blog and spotlight the excellent content I discover published by my favorite authors and artists from their brilliant blogs and websites!

Now here’s your ‘official invitation’ to visit SO’W (insert smiley face):

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.

America’s Jupiter Return July 22, 2013

Our US Jupiter Return July 22, 2013 needs a Report all its own!

by Jude Cowell

Yes, writing the Report was enjoyable for this Capricorn though naturally it took major effort on my part (and Jupiter loves most things ‘major’!) And so my US Jupiter Return 2013 Report (horoscope shown) is now available for ordering and, if you wish, for printing yourself a copy.

(Click the link above to reach Stars Over Washington’s sidebar where you’ll find a handy PayPal button near the top–select Option 1–Solar, or Option 2–Jupiter.)

So if you use or study one of the Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius Rising natal horoscopes for America (ex: July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA), you may agree that the Great Benefic (Zeus or Jove by his other names!) is of great importance in our national psyche and Jupiter’s return to natal degree (5Can56) begins a new 12-year cycle as of July 22, 2013 which provides us with an info-rich horoscope to consider over the next 12 years!

Also available: Report #1 US Solar Return 2013, plus, more Stars Over Washington Reports will be added as my schedule allows. Thanks! jc

Online Event! We the People and the Stars

Though I’m tardy posting to tell anyone–astrologers or otherwise–about the July 13 & 14, 2013 online seminars We the People and the Stars, I want to post its link here in case other tardy folk want to order recordings of the presentations, if they so wish!
