Jude’s Threshold says farewell!

Notice: on or about October 11 or 12, 2016, Jude’s Threshold will shutter for the last time. My thanks and warm regards to all who have followed, commented, and shared its content during the 8 years of its existence.

However, due to time constraints, I have not been able to migrate all the posts here over to my new Astrology blog Jude Cowell Astrology though I did try and hope you will mosey to JCAstro when you have a chance where Follows are much appreciated and No Politics or politicians will mar the cyber landscape. (I have Stars Over Washington for that!)

As for WordPress, I will especially miss the re-blog feature its format provides but with an abundance of blogs to manage elsewhere, my schedule and blog collection need an autumnal sweep!

Catch you later,

The Job of H.G. Wells

Perhaps you’ve heard author H.G. Wells called the Father of Science Fiction due to his popular novels such as The Invisible Man and War of the Worlds, made frighteningly famous in 1938 by the voice of Orson Welles.

You see, last year I re-read The Invisible Man in a series of classics I’ve been revisiting via Kindle, novels not read since my school days. Enjoyable? Yes, especially with a different perspective after all these decades! I tend to like Sci-Fi rather well though my favorite all-time books of that particular genre would have to be Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein and Mary Shelley’s masterpiece, Frankenstein. But I digress…

Today I mention the name of H.G. Wells due to his job as mouthpiece for the power elite class of his day in such published material as The Open Conspiracy.

Was the book meant as a guideline or blueprint for the ruling class to follow? Propaganda to make its tenets seem inevitable to future generations? We see that certain things listed therein have been accomplished and others that are in process of occurring as I type. Therefore, it is my view that The Open Conspiracy is just that–a blueprint revealed, and we’re watching world government (aka, global government, or, a ‘new world order’) being implemented under our overly apathetic noses. Is it a centuries-long conspiracy too monstrous to be believed by the American people? Perhaps, and yet we all feel it, don’t we?

Actually, America’s much-touted ‘change of direction’ is due in part to the global government script Washington follows with two world wars under its Belt(way) already and a third war being purposefully stirred up. Tragically, this is what I believe and decry for its evil dimensions, cruelties, criminality, and destruction of freedom and democratic principles. Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Nazism, Zionism, Capitalism, and many other oppressive -isms are part of the agenda, no matter what such systems are called–they all play their parts.

Speaking of my former residence of Washington DC, do you know that a statue in honor of Confederate General and World War Three promoter (and Scottish Rite grand boo-bah of his day) Albert Pike (a busy guy who apparently founded the Ku Klux Klan and ran the Knights of the Golden Circle)–a statue of this Luciferian dude still stands near Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Wonder why? But let’s get back to H.G. who promoted the same Weishauptian-Rothschildian agenda of world control, same as occultist Albert Pike:

Yes, it’s true that Herbert George Wells wrote about what an undistinguished fellow he was! A mild professor type, you know. If so, that turns out to be one blueprint for a man who undermines humanity by following instructions from a grasping power elite who used Wells’ writing talent to further their conspiratorial aims. Even his Sci-Fi works may be seen as part of the script with technological subtleties and futuristic propaganda that younger generations could appreciate and thus be influenced by. Wells made a perfect mouthpiece, knowingly or not.

So what can be said about the natal planets and personality of ‘NWO’ propagandist, economist, historian, futurist, socialist, and author H. G. Wells?

View his natal horoscope with a brief bio at astro.com, plus, his Wikipedia page adds biographical details if you’re curious.

First, an intriguing Sabian Symbol for the degree of his natal Sun (personality; essence; vitality; life purpose) may be of interest for when rounded up we find ’29 Virgo’: “A Man Gaining Secret Knowledge from an Ancient Scroll He Is Reading,” a past time very popular during the 19th century into which he was born on September 21, 1866 4:30 pm GMT Bromley, England. His birth data is gleaned from his birth certificate or birth record and thus has a Rodden Rating of AA for accuracy. A Sun-North Node conjunction assured him of contacts with the public and success along his solar path.

As for futurism, we don’t have to look far with Aquarius rising on the Ascendant (12:57) and Moon @21AQ05 which gave him plenty of futuristic, original, eccentric, and genius vibes of Aquarius but also some measure of psychic ability (Moon in 1st house). A secretive 12th house Jupiter in governmental Capricorn denotes metaphysical studies behind the scenes, plus, knowledge of Politics and the dissemination of political information through publishing.

A subversive, accident-prone Mars-Neptune square supports the secret, hidden, and probably metaphysical studies of the solar Sabian Symbol, above, and being born with the ‘New World Order’ planets, Uranus and Neptune, in aspect to one another (a square from Aries to Cancer) marks his generation as one of great social change and is notable for people who hold an ideal of how the world ‘could be’. Plus, his Mars (action, motivation, energy, testosterone) conjoins quirky Uranus in the 5th house of Creativity (and Romance, but that’s beyond the scope of this post!) so here are more eccentric vibes on display with his *reigning need–shown by the Moon’s sign of Uranus-ruled Aquarius–to spread his wealth of complex ideas to the general public (Moon). With both planets ruling his rising sign of Aquarius, a Saturn (past) and Uranus (future) trine suggests more otherworldly, futuristic vibes within his character and both planets relate to Astrology and to other occult (hidden) studies and interests. A protective Grand Trine

For Socialism we look to the Uranus-Neptune square, plus, his Saturn-Neptune inconjunction (150 degrees) with both planets well known for their link to such societal concepts as government, law, and business (Saturn) and the masses, the media, propaganda, and mystic pursuits (Neptune).

Looking to Wells’ 8th house of Finances, Sex, Death, and the Occult, we see a Venus-Saturn conjunction (dissatisfaction in love or long-lasting relationships–he married twice and had other romances) which is opposed by powerful Pluto @14Taurus in the 2nd house of Values and Earning Ability. Actually, the Venus-Pluto opposition across the 2/8 money axis is exact to the degree (14/14) and denotes that partnership conflicts were usually money-related. I’ve never read a biography of H.G. Wells to confirm this, but that’s what his chart shows. The Saturn-Pluto opposition suggests that he may have been victimized by people who lusted for power.

Hopefully, he learned to be suspicious of enterprises that seemed “too good to be true” because they often were. But we see that power plays were part of his professional life and thus we find at least some evidence of such manipulation within the pages of his books. Wealthy Pluto does like to pull secret strings and make things happen, doesn’t he?

As for the writer’s planet, Mercury, we see the speedy one in book-writing Virgo (19:01) in the 7th house of Partnerships along with his Sun-NN conjunction of success. This trio in 7th h suggests that his professional endeavors were often aided or promoted by others in his life, plus, his creative ideas may have been purloined at times as denoted by a 1st house Neptune Rx in Aries in wide conjunction with the separative South Node, a point of inherited talent, but also a place where a draining of energy may occur. Add to the picture a Chiron-SN conjunction and you have a blind spot or a wound which he dealt with from a past generation or ancestor.

Well, there is much more to the complicated natal chart and character of H.G. Wells but we’ll have to close before this post becomes a novel! Yet perhaps you’d be curious about the Earth-Air Sun Virgo-Moon Aquarius personality blend of global visionary H.G. Wells for it is quite descriptive; then we’ll end with a quote from the author himself:

Sun Virgo-Moon Aquarius personalities tend to exhibit shrewd intelligence and keen observational skills–perfect traits for an author. Virgo is the book-writer and this blend describes a progressive thinker full of ideas and ideals. How Virgoan of him to want to organize society into a tidy, well-functioning system where messy emotions and sentimental ties must be extinguished. Science is another of Virgo’s interests so a double portion for Mr. Wells with his rising Moon in scientific, space traveling Aquarius.

Quiet humility (as he writes of himself as undistinguished, etc) and reformist tendencies entwine along with a matter-of-fact attitude added to the quirky sense of humor of The Critic, and may suggest a rather robotic side. Politics and international planning are possible areas of interest and we know in hindsight that they were, of course. Friendly yet aloof, Mr. Wells preferred alliances based on common interests (as do most people) though he may have had a bit of a monk-like air about him and was conscientiously dedicated to his work.

Sun Sign-Moon Sign by Charles and Suzi Harvey gives the Virgo-Aquarius blend two ‘Images for Integration’ (which refers to the Sun/adult/conscious mind and the Moon/child/unconscious mind when they successfully work together to form a whole personality):

“Staring into a microscope, a scientist sees the past and future writ large…Aliens land and embark on building a new and improved world order.”

Yeah, ‘new and improved‘. Well, power-mad globalists then and now like to assume that their oh-so-rational Uranus-Neptune ideal of Utopianism is an “improvement.” They plan for the ‘order’ to come out of the societal chaos that they themselves create. It’s the devilish Hegelian Dialectic put into action: thesis-antithesis-synthesis.

Okay, I’ll hush for now and close with a few apt words from H.G. Wells:

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

Wonder if he thought that up all by himself?

*for reigning need of the Moon thanks go to the masterful work of astrologer, psychologist, and author Dr. Noel Tyl.

Note: for the sake of brevity I left mention of it out of this post but you may also wish to check out another of Wells’ futuristic writings, The Shape of Things to Come.

And here’s an enlightening New World Order timeline you may wish to peruse if you dare. You’ll find Mr. Wells therein.

Spring EQ 2014: Sun Aries-Moon Scorpio

On March 20, 2014 at 12:57:09 pm est, the Sun reaches 00Aries00:00 in the Tropical Zodiac and the Spring season begins here in the Western Hemisphere and the 2014 astrological year ensues.

With Sun in Aries, the Mars-ruled sign of warriors and activists, and Moon (We the People in mundane astrology) in the Mars-Pluto-ruled sign of Scorpio, we may glean a bit of information on the character of the season while remembering that all Aries Ingress horoscopes provide a background influence for the entire year.

Aries is a Fire sign, of course, and Scorpio a Water sign and together their energies give something of a steamy nature to the proceedings. Steam purifies but can scorch as well and this supports the Spring EQ 2014 chart implications–have a peek and you’ll see expansive Jupiter rising along with Sirius, a star known as The Scorcher, and the Dog Star.

Plus, in Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars we find Sirius (worshiped in ancient Egypt as Isis–and as a goddess in Washington DC as well–in Sumerian, Inanna) described with keywords, ‘The fire of immortality’ which relates, as you know, to planet Venus as Morning and Evening star…in mythology, descending into the underworld (becoming invisible on Earth) for part of the year.

America’s natal Sun @13Cap19 (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) conjoins the zodiacal position of Sirius which has actually moved closer by precession and is now positioned at 14Cancer.

So! Spring 2014’s Sun Ari-Moon Sco blend denotes a season imbued with intensity, power, and wit. We’ll be treated to more self-dramatizing from ego-driven Washington and elsewhere along with some back-stabbing from those thought to be friends. (In DC, my former place of residence, you know what they say: if you want a friend, get a dog. Or maybe a Dog Star?)

Cynicism, brazen behavior, and pushiness will be perhaps even more prevalent than usual as the 2014 mid-term election campaigns heat up and politicians attempt to scope points with their constituents. Most people are feeling purposeful this Spring but to whose benefit (?) as self-belief takes the lead. Hidden corners are probed for secrets are always revealed when Scorpio is involved–and, until the April 29th Solar Eclipse (9Tau), we remain under the influence of the 16 North Scorpio Solar Eclipse of November 3, 2013 (11Sco15) with its Uranus-Neptune vibes of bright ideas and welcomed solutions.

All in all, Spring 2014 promises a season and a year of ambition, hard work, and single-minded determination and we’re all ready for new experiences and the bright ideas that bring them. Jupiterian improvement in circumstances and investment in job creation would be welcomed changes, too, yet it seems like Politics, that ‘organized system of hatreds’ (asserted Henry B. Adams), ruins almost everything it touches–and it’s doing so on purpose.

Now with Spring being a time of new beginnings and new life sprouting up, let’s close this post with a quote from an author who was born during a Sun Ari-Moon Sco interlude, one Henry James–imho, his words are a slap in the face of totalitarian Global Government types and puppet monarchists the world over!

“Live all you can…it doesn’t matter what you do in particular, so long as you have lived your life. If you haven’t had that what have you had?”

Wishing a Happy Spring 2014 to All!

Who does JFK’s grandson Jack Schlossberg favor?

It is my considered opinion that John F. Kennedy’s only grandson, John (Jack) Schlossberg, son of Caroline (our new ambassador to Japan), favors his Uncle John Jr more than he favors his grandfather Jack Kennedy.

Feel free to disagree!

http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Jack+Schlossberg&id=3B1094841E50400BA4288C4A9ECBFCD57E39AC8F&FORM=IQFRBA

Jack, age 20 and studying emergency medical technology at Yale University, is being haled as a handsome lad and with this who could disagree? Recently he spoke at the 50th anniversary of New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, and was on hand for the photo shoot of his mother being sworn in as ambassador to Japan.

Some folk are calling him a “budding statesman” though unfortunately he may want to be careful to not become too popular with the public if he enters Politics, if you know what I mean.

Here’s a Tumblr page http://kennedylegacy.tumblr.com/post/3815450742/jfks-only-grandson with more info and some early photos, if you’re interested.

Born on January 19, 1993, Jack Schlossberg is either a Sun Capricorn (unless born after 8:30 pm est) with Moon in Sagittarius, or a Sun Aquarius with Moon in early Capricorn (Moon to 00Cap00 at 9:48 pm est.)

Capricorn is, as you know, the sign of government, law, and business and is ruled by conservative Saturn while Aquarius is ruled and co-ruled by both Saturn and Uranus. With his natal Venus exalted in compassionate Pisces, support for Aquarian humanitarianism may be found with Sun in Aquarius, sign of the Water Bearer (his birth hour is unknown.) Plus, natal Pluto in Scorpio, sign of regeneration and medical procedures, supports his interest in medical studies.

January 19, 1993 falls into the 13 North Saros Series of Solar Eclipses and the initial Solar Eclipse of 13N manifested on August 14, 1776 @22Leo. As you also know, the rest of the signatures on the Declaration of Independence were penned on August 2, 1776 which is in range of the 13N eclipse (2 weeks prior or after) and syncs the beginning of a new nation with the start of a new eclipse Series.

There are other factors in the natal chart of Jack Schlossberg that indicate political links with America (ex: natal Mars Rx conjunct US natal Sun in Cancer) but this post is about to end now so…

9.10.13 Obama on TV (Syria)

Just a brief heads-up in case you want to check out a little Astrology concerning tonight’s TV address from President Obama to the American and Syrian people (and whomever) which has been posted to Stars Over Washington:

http://www.starsoverwashington.com/2013/09/91013-president-obama-speaks-on-syria.html

 

Autumn Equinox 2013: Sun Libra-Moon Taurus

Autumn Equinox 2013 and the US Trudge to War with Syria

by Jude Cowell

Summer is gone and Autumn 2013 is almost upon us in the Northern Hemisphere when the Sun ‘clocks in’ at 00Libra00:00 (+00:00 declination) conjunct US natal Midheaven (The Goal) and this year, the Moon is exalted in Venus-ruled Taurus. This cosmic circumstance for Autumn 2013 denotes a prominent Venusian influence since the planet of diplomacy, values, relationships, and the attraction principle rules both Libra and Taurus.

As you know, Taurus is a ‘money sign’ with an underbelly of greed, possessiveness, and intolerance–and Taurus does love its creature comforts, security, and luxuries if it can procure them. Sometimes diplomatic Libra, sign of balance, fairness, and the Scales of Justice, is also a war sign which spotlights what Washington and the Pentagon are determined to do to Syria–bring the Syrian people improvement by bombing, a difficult ‘sell’ these days to a war-weary American public who, thanks to what Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski called in a recent interview a “Global Political Awakening” (see: http://www.storyleak.com/brzezinski-global-political-awakening-making-syrian-war-difficult/ ) is, he says, “making Syrian war difficult” for the US.

As if waging any war or gaining support for bombing innocent populations should be easy. In Syria’s case, the argument seems to be ‘you harmed your own people so we’ll also harm them to show that we don’t like the method you used’, a pathological excuse easily seen through by anyone with a conscience and a brain. Yes, the world agreement that no chemical weapons use is allowed was a great thing while it lasted and yet apparently such weapons are still being manufactured and sold. Hmm…

Well, keeping quixotic Washington in mind, let’s give a general consideration to the conscious-unconscious flavor of Autumn 2013 using the Sun Libra-Moon Taurus combination of the Autumn Equinox horoscope (or, Libra Ingress, if you prefer).

Signs Taurus and Libra are naturally quincunx (inconjunct = 150 degrees) one another so adjustments are needed between them though I don’t expect the public to fully accept our Nobel Peace Prize president’s strike on Syria or to accept that Washington’s Global Cop position with its *misguided actions will be adjusted to in any great degree. Sounds more like one of those ‘agree to disagree’ scenarios between the Sun (leadership; the president) and the Moon (We the People; the public), doesn’t it?

Sun Libra-Moon Taurus

This is an Air (mental)–Earth (physical) blend of rationality, efficiency, and innovation with an ability to use abstract thought to turn ideas into reality (we’ll see after President Obama’s PR blitz this week to drum up public and congressional support for intervention in Syria and after his public address on Tuesday, 9/10/13, when he ‘makes a case’ for war. And of course, the US is already in Syria “on the ground” and has been arming rebels for over a year.)

The Air-Earth blend signifies “practical idealists” planning a course of action, then acting (with or without the public or Congress’ okay–POTUS will probably get the Senate’s approval this week and skip the purposefully non-functional House of Representatives as they all shred the Constitution into confetti once again. But that view depends on whether you believe the civil war in Syria is a threat to US national security. (It threatens oil supplies to the West, more like.)

Sun Libra-Moon Taurus denotes the vanity of Venus and those who hold ‘black and white’ moral positions–or, pretend they do. There may be noted a superficial style of salesmanship and a tendency toward over-indulgence on both the material and emotional planes. The blends indicates charismatic people who can be persuasive and that’s the card that President Obama hopes to play once again this week.

This combo of energies wants to ‘make moral sense’ and I think that if our nation’s economy had been seen to on behalf of Main Street so that the ‘great American Middle Class’ was out of the financial woods, it would seem more a time for America to take action concerning the morally reprehensible use of chemical weapons on innocent people.

That the Assad administration is responsible for the use of gas in Syria is debatable at best. That false flag ops have long been used to frame others for their perpetration is known (part of Brzesinski’s “Global Political Awakening”?) and may turn out to be the seed of truth lurking within this tragic situation as Washington DC attempts to dupe the American people into bankrolling war again–all for the sake of imperialism, government-toppling, and lighting yet another fuse on the powder keg that is the Middle East.

Now soon I will publish the horoscope of Autumn Equinox 2013 with planetary details on my Political Astrology site Stars Over Washington (see: http://www.starsoverwashington.com) so I hope you’ll join me there soon in taking a look. If you do. you’ll notice that the Pluto-Chiron midpoint of plutocracy, oppression, and primal violence is rising when the chart is set for Washington DC, my former residence. Yes, I still love the District itself as a beautiful city but lament sorrowfully what the global crime syndicate of banksters and racketeers have  done with the place since I left.

Also in the horoscope concerning Mr. Obama: his natal Neptune in Scorpio is conjoined now by transiting Saturn and the North Node (encounters/destiny; Saturn-NN = isolation; inhibition) which creates a midpoint picture full of possibilities which may be worth your consideration:

Transit Saturn-NN = natal Neptune: having to pay a price that was more than expected; deceit with friendship given; friends who deceive or confuse you  (Munkasey); confusing others about one’s personal stand; deception, lies, fraud (Tyl); being misunderstood or lonely; separation; illness–fraud (Ebertin.)

And if we use America’s Scorpio Rising natal chart, we find the tr Saturn-NN midpoint conjoins natal Ascendant which has a ‘pulling back; appearing alone; going away’ flavor. I just wish with all my heart that Vulcan neocons and other syndicate agents of the warmongering persuasion are the ones who’d go away.
