Trump Family Files for More Migrant Workers!

Setting all hypocrisy aside, the Trump Family Wants More Migrant Workers for Family Businesses in spite of Trump’s campaign promise to create thousands of jobs for American workers.

Hypocrisy, simple irony, or both?

Do you think the very public presidential spotlight on the family’s business activities has turned out to be brighter than expected? You know, along the lines of “who knew healthcare was so complicated?” Everybody knew but Donald!

Summer Solstice 2017: Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus

When Summer 2017 begins in June there will be a Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus vibe in the air, something of a Moon-Venus influence with Cancer ruled by the Moon and Taurus one of Venus’ favorite signs.

If you wish, view the horoscope of Summer Solstice 2017 with Trump’s natal planets penned around it. The chart is set for Washington DC as representative or symbol of our entire nation. Mr. Trump’s first natal planet to rise in the solstice chart is his quirky, radical Uranus in communicating (sometimes duplicitous) Gemini so we’ve got that going for us.

But what about the lovely Moon-Venus vibe we were talking about? This is a blend of energies that can result in excellent teaching abilities, shrewd perceptions, and subjective prejudices (not necessarily in that order!) along with a certain fussiness and values that are rooted in the past. I can think of a few neanderthal politicians who could be described by such rootedness but let’s not mention any names of the culprits.

Now in their masterful book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey give three ‘Images for Integration’ which refer to the conscious (Sun) and unconscious (Moon) minds and energies working together for best results. Under the influence of the practical Water-Earth combo of Sun Cancer-Moon Taurus they are:

“A family photo album…A flourishing family business…A painter captures the taste and smell of a landscape.”

Oh and did I mention that this combination relates to the concept of ‘smother mothering’?  Now maternalism we might have had to some degree with a Hillary Clinton presidency but instead the US government was taken in a different and well-worn direction–of “smug and strong-armed paternalism”  (18 Capricorn, Jones) with the wrong-headed goal of perpetual war now more set in stone than before by neocons, Vulcans, and war profiteers.

So as the warmongers have their way with the tax payers’ money, Summer will begin and zoom toward a disruptive Solar Eclipse coming in August (29 Leo), an eclipse that ‘hits’ the natal Ascendant (physical body; Self) of Mr. Trump and ruffles his rising Mars in Leo. Will the Jupiterian Mr. Trump act as “The Great American Eclipse” visible across the entire country from Oregon to South Carolina?

Can the effects of the August 2017 eclipse , the first repetition of the 1 North Saros Series since it manifested in August 1999 as the ‘King of Terror’ eclipse predicted by Nostradamus, be symbolized as a hidden meaning of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan? Sounds a bit too coincidental to me…but I’m the suspicious type!

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.

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…

Senator Ted Cruz: “a crusader dueling with shadows”

Something about Senator Ted Cruz

A US Senator since January 2013, Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada on December 22, 1970 as the Sun reached Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business (birth hour unknown.) His ‘reigning need’ (Tyl) is shown by Moon in Libra, ruled by evaluating, attracting, sometimes vengeful Venus, a planet associated with money. Libra’s Airy nature denotes intellectual and legal interests along with creativity shown to best advantage by a use of balance though a certain emotionally detached attitude may be present.

No, the harmony preferred by Libra, Venus, and a Venus-ruled Moon (emotions, feelings, moods, physical body) aren’t always in store for a man born with a gracious helping of powerful planetary aspects relating to his natal Sun (ego; willpower; the Quest) and Mercury (thinking processes; planning; communications) and young Sen. Cruz sports a few such aspects which have provided him with the inherent motivation and drive to reach that pinnacle called Capitol Hill.

You may wish to read a further analysis of his planetary aspects on my Political Astrology site Stars Over Washington where a fuller astro-portrait may be found.

Since the Moon remained in Libra for the 24 hours of Dec 22, 1970, a precise birth hour isn’t required in order to consider Sen. Cruz’s Sun Cap-Moon Libra combination of energies with the Sun signifying the conscious mind (adult) and the Moon denoting the unconscious (child), and of course the unconscious mind tends to be the more powerful motivator of the two. Getting them working together is the height of successful creativity and ‘self-actualization’ and the square (90 degrees) between Capricorn and Libra supplies the dynamism one must have in order to ‘make the effort’ necessary to succeed.

Sen. Cruz’s Sun and Moon signs, one ruled by conservative, austere Saturn, planet of the status quo, the other by Venus, as noted, above, gives a Venus-Saturn signature (loyalty but dissatisfaction) which is further emphasized by a natal opposition between Venus (Sco) and Saturn Rx (Tau) across the intense Taurus-Scorpio axis of Values and Money, in mid-degrees. Plus, Saturn in Taurus is quite determined to be a preserver of values, an attitude helpful in Politics, yet whose values is another question entirely.

Curious fact: the ‘King of Terror’ Solar Eclipse that Nostradamus warned us about–August 11, 1999 @18Leo21–has Mr. Cruz’s position of Saturn (16Tau17 Rx v 16Tau52 Direct) which basically makes the difficult *’Mother of All Eclipses’ Cruz’s Saturn Return, age 29, a time when responsibilities should be accepted and increasing maturity is expected–or else. For as you know, Saturn is a karmic planet bringing along a reaping of what was sown in the past.) Naturally, all who were born around 1970 have planetary links to the 1999 eclipse and the May 2000 Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn may be of great personal significance for them as well.

Sun Cap-Moon Libra denotes our brazen junior senator as a crusader who duels with shadows and who possesses a paradoxical personality that’s conservative yet liberal. And though he seems to be in charge of his well-regulated life, an ‘ideas v action’ motif may be noted. Yet with his purposeful outlook, he can achieve most anything in life though negative thinking may interfere at times. Feeling the weight of his duties acutely, the serious Senator Cruz is inclined to be opportunistic, skeptical to the point of cynicism, and pedantic in any particular area he considers his expertise.

If a cause is deemed to be worthwhile, Sen. Cruz is happy to enjoin the fight with cunning shrewdness and a dry, factual approach. Although he prefers to behave politely (Uranus in Libra), he wants his words to have dramatic punch. Business and financial astuteness may be in evidence with much support from natal Jupiter in Big Business Scorpio, the sign ruled by ruthless, overbearing Mars-Pluto influences.

At age 42, Senator Cruz may be yet to learn that a ‘stiff upper lip’ isn’t always the best solution to other people’s problems, or to his own; a heavy sense of justice which ‘must be done’, plus, a healthy self-opinion refuses to allow his ego to be trod upon which are tendencies aided by the cool, emotionally detached Libra Moon. Thus, any criticism can seem to ‘roll off his back’, as they say–including that of his fellow Republicans.

Now let’s close our Cap-Libra consideration of Ted Cruz with the most apt of three “Images for Integration” (conscious + unconscious) given for this combo by Charles & Suzi Harvey in their excellent book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign–it has a quaint, knightly flavor to it:

“A visionary statesman fights a duel to see justice done.”

Somehow I can easily imagine the senator challenging an adversary by smacking him with his grey morning gloves, can’t you?

~:~

*Since the brutal WTC attacks of 9/11/01 and America’s subsequent brutalities and over-reaches, we see clearly what Nostradamus’ warning involved in preparation for the much-touted New Millennium. One basic reason it’s called ‘The Mother of All Eclipses’ is because it falls into the 1 North Saros Series. The initial 1N eclipse occurred on January 4, 1639 @13Cap48 (opposite US natal Sun of July 4, 1776 thus personalizing the August 1999 eclipse for our nation’s presidents, the White House, and the American people–in Astrology’s past-present-future kind of way.)

Additionally, 1N is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the JFK Assassination Nov 22, 1963 and of the First Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 by Freemason President Harry Truman.
