Will May 2012 Eclipse bring US-Iran conflict?

Notes for Monday January 30, 2012 and May 2012

by Jude Cowell

It is reported that the US sees May 2012 as the month to attack Iran which makes this astrologer wonder if the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse @ 00Gem21 may herald such an obscene and over-reaching event, a bad decision which may top All Bad Decisions.

The May 2012 Solar Eclipse triggers a difficult Fixed Star Alcyone 00Gem00 with keyphrases: something to cry about; exile; sorrow and suffering–Alcyone is one of the Seven Weeping Sisters and relates to vision or lack of it–and since the Pentagon has an inperial habit of opening Pandora’s Box even though its unintended consequences and ills spill out upon all Mankind–if indeed the consequences of war are ever ‘unintended’ by the old men who start them for young men and women to fight–then this Solar Eclipse may be a potent influence.

In Campaign 2012 news, have the Republicans “sealed their fate” with Hispanic voters as the Obama camp suggests?

Pentagon financial accounts shadier than expected

Turns out if you want a country bombed to Kingdom Come, call the Pentagon. If you wish to extend your power base into the world, call the Pentagon. If you have your eye on some resources that don’t belong to you, call you-know-who.

And if you want death-dealing drones that can be hacked, call our Death Star, the Pentagon.

But if you want to know where outrageous amounts of our money went, Do Not Call the Pentagon.

Shift of Earth’s Magnetic Pole and John Wheeler

A couple of years ago I asked a scientist friend if she thought that Earth’s poles are shifting. She said, No.

Turns out, they are. They’re shifting 40 miles per year toward Russia, of all places.

Now I’ve always been intrigued with mystical Russia and I find the year 1905 fascinating but going from Tampa to Russia? The above too-brief article has it all.

You may also be interested in Astrology of John Wheeler’s Murder which I posted earlier today, plus, here’s a video *presentation that purports to connect the thousands of dead blackbirds that have fallen from the sky recently (and perhaps other animal kills in various places of late) with the murder of chemical and biological weapons expert John P. Wheeler, a former aide to US presidents Reagan, Bush, and Bush, and who peeks from Washington shadows to become that special breed: a man who knew too much.

*It’s one of those not-really-a-video videos. You know. Interesting though. jc

WikiLeaks to reveal Iraq War docs

The announcement of Superbombs and Secret Jails: what to look for in WikiLeaks Iraq Docs has me mired in an emotional quandary because next week’s promised documents release makes its timing perilous (though when would be a good time to uncover the shadowy machinations of the Bush-Cheney regime?) and yet I feel that an end to US imperialistic war and strong-arming would do the entire planet a world of good if it could be accomplished.

Yet WikiLeaks or no, US arrogance churns on, bankrupting our nation as it beggars we-the-people, and exporting the terrorism it purports to address.

And while my Flower Power Generation took to the streets to voice our strong opposition to the Vietnam fiasco and carnage, I keep wondering whas’up with our current generation of canon fodder – is it the cool techie games they grew up playing that have them so enthralled with going to war for oil, the globalist agenda, politics, and profits-for-the-rich in this too-real world of drones and pain?

US launches new ops against Taliban 9.15.10

For the first time, US troops have launched major operations in the region that spawned the Taliban in the Zahri district of southern Aghanistan.

Well, unfortunately for horoscope viewing, my software program never willingly gives me locations in Afghanistan where the ops began at 4:00 am local time, September 15, 2010. But the launching occurred at ‘about 7:30 pm edt’ at the Pentagon last evening (Sept 14) and a peek at the chart shows 28Pis47 rising with Uranus 28Pis53 Rx.

Uranus on ASC indicates an ability to cope with the unexpected yet this Uranus is retrograde. Perhaps the unexpected with be delayed or not definitively dealt with. That’s nothing new in the US theater of war in the Middle East, of course, plus chart-ruler Jupiter the General is at critical or crisis degree: 29Pis15 – but also retrograde, not the most strengthening picture for Jupiter the General’s war efforts.

At Midheaven (the goal point of a chart) is 29Sag20 with Sag also being ruled by Jupiter Rx. ’30Sag’ = “The Pope Blessing the Faithful” and I suppose he does though it’s of no personal interest to me. What this could mean to the US war machine is beyond the scope of this brief post.

Interestingly, Sun 22Vir03 gives a Sabian Symbol for ’24Virgo’ = “A Lion Tamer Rushes Fearlessly into the Circus Arena” which is very descriptive of our Sun worshiping culture of the West rushing in to the wilderness of the Zahri territory, described as “the heart of darkness.”

(Leo, sign of the lion, rules the heart and spine, as you know.)

Then there’s the Moon @ 18Sag56; the symbol of a Crescent Moon signifies the East. “19Sag” = “Pelicans, Disturbed by People, Move Their Habitats” and my thoughts are that the Taliban will simply move their encampments in order to fight another day and are already vamoosed: the Moon in the chart was out-of-bounds when the ‘major operations’ were launched.

Wonder if the US military knows where all the tunnels are?

(Sabian Symbols from Solar Fire software.)

A Pentagon on the edge?

Late Day Update: Well! President Obama is cutting loose one Dennis Blair, his head of National Intelligence. Supposedly Blair and Leon Panetta (CIA Director) were at odds. The official announcement may be made as soon as tomorrow. But who in their right mind would want the job?

Original post begins now:

Jeff Huber thinks the next structure to crash and burn may be the Pentagon, our “House of Usher.”

Well, a Pentagon crash could certainly be described astrologically as part of America’s Mars (military; police; males; energy-action-desires) turning retrograde by progression, a reactive condition for out-going, war-fighting Mars, which will last approximately 76 more years since it began in 2006 under brash George Bush.

This is the same Mr. Bush who illegally invaded Iraq with Jupiter, the General, retrograde, a significator of the war’s bottomless pit in the money department, and a sign of the painful over-extension of our military which has become more obvious of late.

As you know, starting a war with Jupiter Rx seldom turns out well for the aggressor, and any ‘good outcomes’ are mitigated by negative factors which make the Iraq Occupation a ‘never-mind’ adventure that Bush-Cheney should have avoided.

But high-handedly they chose it. And I believe their decision to make war in 2003 to be part of the Financial Collapse of 2008+, along with the attacks of 9/11/01 (which ties in their invasion and occupation of Afghanistan – still ongoing.)

Now, over seven years later, I assert that if the US government wants to find a better, more solvent course, it will quit spending what little fortune the American people have left (or will earn in future) on endless wars in foreign lands, and stop supporting states such as Israel which has several fat bank accounts of its own and can purchase its own weapons of mass destruction without our further aid.

So America’s ‘NWO imperlialism’ complex and our ‘global police’ mission (bwo marching orders given us by NWO types) have bankrupted our nation thereby creating a situation where eventually we’ll say in chorus, ‘Please establish a New World Order, we’re desperate for whatever you can do, oh please’…which is precisely what the global fascist crime syndicate wants us to say after their engineered chaos subsides and the dust settles over the land.

And they’ll gleefully step over and crush you and your Aunt Granny Fanny to make it happen. Can’t you tell yet?

Over 53% of our tax dollars go to War

Tax Day, April 15, is upon us with a vengeance and it’s not comforting to know that most of our funds go to fighting perpetual war bwo the Pentagon.

Especially with US schools, post offices, and court rooms closing for lack of funds! Either we-the-people are mad as hatters or the US government is trying to drive us in that direction while totally clearing out the US Treasury in the process.

As I groused repeatedly about the Bush-Cheney regime’s invasion of Iraq in 2003: with Jupiter the General retrograde at the time, the war would be a bottomless pit in the money department…was I wrong?

Well, this is a definite case of ‘sometimes you just don’t want to be right’.

And I stand by my opinion: Bush-Cheney didn’t go to war in Iraq or in Afghanistan in order to end terrorism – they invaded the Middle East on a misguided mission to promote it. And we see years later how the entire world is paying the price.

War Economy behaving badly

Yes, you know that. And with precious little consumerism to buck up American finances, the Pentagon’s “loss” of $2.3 trillion will have to do the trick until more can be “allocated.”

But they are not crooks over yonder in that starry 5-pointed fortress, so don’t go thinking that. And a certain amount of mismanagement of funds is to be expected in such a mighty big war.  

(Well, in their defence, it IS global, you know.)

Plus, it’s Iraq’s fault for not having the systems in place for accountability (the ones Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld and the Pentagon saw fit to destroy.) Makes it’s hard to pass the bucks but Bush does it quite well as long as they land on someone else’s desk.

Tonight I’ve cast my pea brain back to better times when graying George Bush held his second press conference of the year 2008 – April 29, to be exact – and gave the former big-spending public a shout-out on high fuel and food prices.

Blame Congress, blame the consumer monster you helped create!

Although we were only following our ‘how YOU can help’ orders post-9/11 (which were intoned directly from the megaphone of propaganda) by running up our never-pay-off credit card ‘balances’ toward the Bush-Greenspan promoted Ownership Society.

And you know that President Richard Nixon’s never-pay-off hoofprints still linger over that one.

So if you wish, you may read my real-time post from the TV broadcasting of April 29, 2008’s press gaggle, with a smidge of astrologese-into-English included. And where Bush annointed the presidency of John WOT McCain, because he’ll be the one to continue America’s War Economy better than the other guy:

 http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/08/americas-war-economy-of-waste.html

Perhaps I should’ve titled it: America’s War Economy of the Wasters since Jupiter and Neptune are lining up for 2009 – The Speculators will smooze together once again up close and personal, and if I’m around for 2009, I’ll be listening for the dates of any and all big Federal Reserve sessions, stock exchange hoo ha, other monetary organisational meetings, or Summits from Mt. Olympus. ~:~

 

update: The Fed will meet Saturday, August 23 at a Jackson Hole, WY Conference with Ben Bernanke as keynote speaker. ‘No post-mortems yet,’ says NPR – the crisis hasn’t yet died. No kiddin,’ Bernie. But the corspe is already stinkin’ up the place from outside your velvet ropes.

Pentagon’s Unmanned Spokesdrone: video link

Sometimes I wonder what I’d do for the latest news without The Onion News Network:

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/08/pentagons-unmanned-spokesdrone-video.html

This Spokesdrone will save a lot of careers…

And yes, I would happily have placed the video here if I could get video embeds to…embed as well as they do at Blogger! You don’t mind a small click, do you? This is Top News politically AND scientifically! ;p

Congress: money votes on Thursday (5.8.08)

Fed up with drunken sailor Dems and Repubs all? Where will you be this Thursday as the US Congress moons the American people using its typical lack of deliberation, moderation, and what’s left of its honor?

The following link lands you upon a Stars Over Washington post with details on this Thursday’s money votes in Congress.

Ah, Congress! Not much more than a large aviary full of war profiteers and their enablers who may end up throwing good money after the last good money they funneled into Iraq to keep the Occupation going instead of finally doing the right thing, admitting their craven mistake of invading Iraq on false pretenses, and finding the backbone to redeploy our valiant soldiers out of Iraq where we offend too much.

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/05/eye-on-pelosi-and-thursdays-money-vote

And the jingoist neocons sold it as a war that would pay for itself…as if war ever does anything bright like that.

Bring Home Our Troops.

There’s no shame in “regrouping forces to plan anew” as the I Ching says. It’s old–no, ancient–advice and has plenty of track record to show how good it is…it’s still being given because it works in difficult strategic situations when it is most needed.

There’s no military solution to this centuries-old riddle that is the Middle East. Bring our troops home now.

 

Slight Warning for the sensitive: MoveOn.org is involved within the above linked post. You’ll manage!
