Two reactors in Georgia, Full Moon 3-19-11

From the Gross to the Sub-Rhyme

by Jude Cowell

Just in from my hometown newspaper The Banner-Herald comes an update on the two nuclear reactors still on track for construction in the southeastern state of Georgia in spite of the horrid Meltdown in Japan.

Yes, there are differences between power plant designs and the chance of a tsunami claiming one of the nuclear reactors in Georgia is slim to none. But there’s more to consider, if you care to read. The article includes a brief overview of how things stand in the US which may interest a wider audience.

Personally, I don’t like being reminded of the myth of Atlantis which (in one version of the tale) sank due to abuse/misuse of power. The asteroid Atlantis in Mundane Astrology has keywords: ‘abuse/misuse of power; where we feel doomed.’

If this turns out to be the case, I’ll blame the usual cast of wormy characters along with nuclear and other scientists and their institutions, laboratories, and related universities. The IAEA is also suspect in my book – can’t help it.

Uranus = AP an Astro-Factor in Current Troubles

Uranus to Aries Point, the current Solar Eclipse degree 13Cap38 (January 4, 2011) conjoining fixed star Manubrium (a flaring heat), midpoint picture Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: harm through force majeure, Jupiter opposite Saturn, Saturn quindecile Uranus, and other difficult planetary energies and patterns now active in Earth’s atmosphere and the historical timeline are proving too hot for would-be rescuers to handle and too debilitating to Life on Earth for me to keep out of prayer for very long and I must move on mentally and emotionally to a different topic for a while, y’know?

So here are 3 previous posts which concern timely Spring 2011 topics w none of them updated for this linking:

Spring Equinox 2011 (aka, Aries Ingress, or Spring Ingress – basically when Tropical Sun reaches 00Aries00:00, the Aries Point of World Manifestation. 00Lib00:00 and 00Can00:00/Cap are the other three points on the Physical Plane – Grand Cross of earthly existence, and signified by the number 4.

Now I don’t know about you, but I could do with less world manifestation at the moment, agreed? If only the world could have a few moments to catch up. Perhaps a return of Uranian electricity to the power plants will bring solutions for Japan.)

Cat from Iran: a limerick

There once was a cat from Iran

who got hot and turned on a fan

it wasn’t enough

to cool off his fluff

so atoms were split in Tehran.

He worked long and hard on the splits

while George threw incompetent fits

by acting so proud

no weapons allowed

or sanctions will come in a blitz.

So who gave the arms race it’s start?

who played the gargantuan part?

America’s clout

could take the world out

but that wouldn’t be very smart.

owning the US government

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the US since the days of Andrew Jackson.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt

And they’re squeezing it dry 2008 as transiting asteroid King Midas hooks up with the Great Neptune/Pluto Conjunction in the ‘Generation of Materialism’ birth chart (1892) of the Robber Baron class infesting industry, energy, and finance (7-8 Gemini) and we now have ringside seats for observing the rotten outcome from these hubristic social tinkerers.

Here’s a rhyme for Barack Obama’s campaign and VP vetting woes:

Past CEO of Fanny Mae Obama’s vetting done
it’s best to move along your way for races must be won!

jc 6.11.08 (Johnson’s resignation accepted)

Uh oh! another silly poem has occurred, this one for John McCain who’s So Not like George Bush, he’d have us believe, and yet he reminds me of SomeOne ruthless and reformist in a police state kind of way…this verse may not be groanworthy enough for the discerning but at least it’s briefer than the Bush tenure…

McCain McCain our oft’ refrain
what wars will you promote?
don’t plan attacks
to knife our backs
while reading My Pet Goat.

Obama win stokes world’s admiration for America

As I’ve flitted about the interweb this morning reading world opinions on yesterday’s historic win for…gasp!…a black man, it seems America has impressed most of our fellow earth dwellers with her powers of reinvention.

Except in Pakistan. There a man was found to plop the terrorist fly smack dab into the middle of the Obama ointment because of an answer given months ago to the question of the US acting alone within Pakistani borders if the intell warranted it.

Sullied Sovereignty! It’s such a thorny question and situation since it’s not as if the billions paid to Musharraf and friends has resulted in much action against the terroists living within Pakistan’s mountainous regions. Is someone supposing the billions might be cut off if there’s an Obama in the White House?

That Obama has “threatened” Pakistan even before becoming president so he’ll be “more dangerous than Bush” seems to be a tactical view designed to help McCain in November in similar fashion to threatening bin Laden tapes being released just before US elections. Will people fall for this manipulative jingoist claptrap again?

Osama bin Laden (if indeed he had anything to do with the timing of the tape releases–lets’ ask HoSec), retained the ones he needed to justify his jihadist campaign so that America would be sure to stay in the Middle East. Does Rove have to do EVERYthing around GOP headquarters? Sheesh, give the hair-challenged fellow a rest, why doncha?

Bush’s Second Verse: McCain Refrain

Keeping the “war on terror” going will seemingly justify at least some of the Bush Doctrine and Cheney’s shotgun-1% Gang mentality while continuing to fuel the tank of the new world government coffers as they march the world toward the abyss of totalitarian regimism.

And the pleas of the American people, while hithertofore disregarded on Capitol Hill after November 2006 and disenfranchised by a secret government ruled by the secret hand, are now apparently in play with Obama’s candidacy. Tiresomely, that McCain has Karl Rove and his minions behind him to undermine our wishes once again is a political given.

The American people have always much preferred Peace and have had to be lied into war several times through the years by larger-agenda’d presidents. Will Obama toe that line as well?

How could he not with the secret backing he’ll need to move into the Oval Office? And if a landslide vote can do it for him, he’ll be in danger if he fails to buckle under the pressure to change his enitre value system on behalf of the globalist plan for world domination.

Sadly, we’ve trusted our government in the past and this is what it’s come to. Lies and dirty dealings from the GOP–with Dem Party enabling–will continue to be on OUR agenda with McCain in the White House for sure, with Obama there…maybe not so much. And can you listen to McCain drone for four years?

Yet hope really does spring eternal in the human heart. It’s finding a beating heart in Washington that’s the problem.

Mr.A.Cat has sent me a fresh political limerick in honor of Obama’s win in Montana, so if you’re ready for a groan you’ll find it published here:

impurrfect political poem published

Sorry but it’s true:  http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2008/05/prez-campaign-rag.html

See the depths of what prez campaign fatigue can lead to? Even my cats are complaining (photo of Wiley included in above-linked post. He’s a longhaired beauty but oh so wumped out!)

Homeland Security Dept created Nov 25, 2002

Have you ever seen or considered the natal chart of DHS?

https://judecowell.wordpress.com/homeland-security-department-nov-25-2003/

DHS was created within the 4 North Series of Solar Eclipses, a Series whose keyphrases are:

“restrictions; inhibitions; separations; disruptions; illusions; misjudging of strength and/or of situations. (Brady’s ‘Predictve Astrology.’)

This Series began on May 25, 1389 (OS) with Sun/Moon 12Gem08 which you will recognize as the US Desc in the so-called Sibly chart (5:10 pm LMT.)

In recent years it has manifested in 1912, 1930, 1948, 1966, 1984, and next: 2020. This means that similar issues may be at play within HoSec’s structure and purpose from these periods of time and you notice that there are significant years in the mix – and one of them is 1984.

Draw your own conclusions, but the above keyphrases for 4North is “illusions” which prophet Orwell understood so well in relation to governmental manipulations against the people.

This Moon/Saturn entity has deceptive, obfuscating, confused (yet creative and mystical in a *Masonic kind of way) Pisces rising of the victim/savior axis…so what were we expecting?

Homeland = “Moon” and Security = “Saturn” with the Germanic influence showing in the 1930 Eclipse on April 28, 1930 to be exact (8 Taurus.)

Hopefully i wil have more time to discuss these issues later on…thanks for putting up with me!

Lunations reveal electability: Al Gore

At Patty’s *request here are the results on Al Gore’s Natal and Progressed lunations to determine if he has that “electable” quality and to nose into whether he is in a phase of life that would aid a presidential term for Albert:

Natal lunar phase (distance between Sun and Moon): Disseminating 262:18;

Secondary Progressed for April 2008: Disseminating 268:24.

So Gore falls into the second hemicycle, the ANTITHETICAL phase (180 degr+) both natally and currently which places him character-wise as self-willed and busy as a bee fulfilling his personal desires.

This is supported by teaching and lecturing which he has asserted he prefers over running for office or serving as president. Board-sitting must take up a gracious amount of time as well but worth it when you’re hangin’ out with the win-win crowd.

Besides, Disseminating types ARE teachers and communicators–which suited him well enough as a young writer and reporter.

You’ve noticed that Gore has recently had his Secondary Phasal Return when Secondary Moon and Sun repeat their angle at birth (262 degr 18 mins.)

 My own Phasal Return is coming up in a few months, and I hardly know what to expect–I can guess, but it’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing so here goes nuthin,’ muffin.

Trilateral Commission, mining, ecology promos, accepting awards…all the things that that bundle of cells needs in order to gel into the man (who may just turn his raptor’s gaze toward a new direction at any moment)…they call him, Al Gore; and when the cards hit the table and the last puppy is curled up in the box, Al Gore would rather be realizing personal goals, whatever they may be.

And with his natal Saturn/Pluto conjunction in the 1st house of Self, I’d stay out of his way, down to the last distressed whale in trouble. For when the sirens broadcast globally, you may look up but it will be too late. War from Space…brought to you by your local tentacle of the centralized mammoth head of the dragon that roars at the rudder of our ill-fated Arsenal of Democracy.

You know it’s easy for anyone to promise overmuch right now with the ongoing Mars/Jupiter opposition overhead and underbelly, but we all must try. Well, the federal government seems to have given in and up on prudence and moderation, doesn’t it?

So to mask the stench of sulphur rising from the above politics and assaulting our innocent nostrils, I penned a rhyme earlier today and it has helped me forget the bitter taste of my defeat on the www…i surrender gracefully if rhymefully and with *all apologies for this poem is very self-indulgent of me esp with desiring Mars opposite expansive Jupiter:

 

~:~Sunday’s www in a frustration nation~:~

The internet is acting coy
forget the worldwide web

i’d read of George and Condi too
while fearing John and Jeb

if only pages loaded soon
before warm sun did set

while candidates for prez intone
upon yon TV set

There’s Meet the Press and Stephanop
Chris Matthews and Bob Schieffer

then popery in New York C
incants on mama’s wafer

it’s all tres moderne so severe
as history reveals

elections rigged and money piled
who lies and cheats and steals?

A racketeering world of woe
the common man a dupe

while rich men dine high on the hog
the rest of us slurp soup

yet still the page will not aload
as time goes ticking by

no blogs from Turtle Lane can post
from someone such as i.

(would’ve publ’d hours ago but no go…but that’s okay because they can have all the hog as far as i’m concerned–actually there’s been no pork consumed here btw since 1978, so thanks but no thanks to shanks. jc)

Political Rhyme of a Presidency for Sale

Early this morning the muse of political rhymery landed rather clunkily upon my brow and I’ve published the results here:

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/675513/lone_ranger_for_president.html

Warning: if you wear your political indoctrinations on your sleeve–or are floating within an Obama dream–you may wish to skip this triple-versed smidge of campaign cynicism.

Warning: above warning may be Void in France–they love him over there, said http://www.npr.org this morning.

Bernanke Rag (rhyme involved)

Economics gotten shaky

we’re directed by Bernanke

causing all a world o’trouble

failed to prick the housing bubble

Greenspan got the scam ball rolling

subprime loans he loved extolling

in cahoots with Wall Street mavens

vultures, crows, and greedy ravens

power money money power

leave the poor to rot and sour

US taxes’ cash cow fading

socialize insider trading

Bush’s tenure worst one ever

bolshevik is at the lever

how much loss may we encumber?

get in line and take a number

enemies are undermining

New York’s Client Number Nining

golden parachutes are spreading

next Fed chairman needs close vetting

may I be a little franky?

time to jettison Bernanke.

jc 3.15.08 (too many people are hoodwinked and hurting by these “experts” who had to see the meltdown coming for me to apologize for the groaniness of this one!)
