Donald Trump and Carelli’s 4 Virgo Symbol

On October 25, 2017 on Stars Over Washington I published a post concerning the 2017 and 2019 Secondary Progressed (SP) New Moons of Donald Trump (2019) and Adolf Hitler (2017).

That both SP New Moons fall upon 3Virgo+ seems significant to me due to the degree’s Sabian Symbol and the shared bigotry and eugenic-style views of both politicians. Follow the link for the entire picture but its gist is, “Black and White Children Play Together Happily…”. Also note that the post also contains the natal midpoint pictures of Trump and Hitler (for the sake of comparison).

As you know, Trump was ‘victor’ in 2016 and was inaugurated in 2017 while mired within his Balsamic phase of the Moon, the darkened phase full of endings and separations, a time when sneakiness abounds and things can ‘go bump in the night’. Symbolically, he remains within it now yet light will begin to dawn and a glimmer of a new phase of life will begin with his SP New Moon which perfects on September 19, 2019 in early Virgo- not that an instant difference will be felt or observed.

Here I shall add to the Sabian Symbol a partial quote concerning what *Adriano Carelli has to say about ‘4 Virgo’ to which I have added a few remarks in (italics):

“A steamroller”: A craze for planning and technology; a naive faith in purely mechanical progress; contempt for individual distinctions; love of the extreme and of the absolute. Some features of fatality in the existence, something inexorable in the character. A massive strength, an ability to lay out on broad lines work to be carried out by others and to give it the finishing touches after completion.

This same force, instead of preparing and perfecting usefully the work of others, can stay fruitless and can sponge upon its environment; or, even worse, instead of loveling (leveling? jc) and paving the way for the execution of the work planned, he can be employed to destroy and raze everything aimlessly to the ground.

{}

…where the stars point to fondness for the fruitless, artificial life usually led by the smartest set of society, a rush for pleasure will swallow up wealth laboriously built up by the ancestors. Plenty of well-meaning and helpful friends will be powerless to save the native from bankruptcy; once collapsed, neither his taste nor his artistic gifts (‘The Art of the Deal’? jc) will be of any avail. A third case is possible: an aggressive, destructive, brutal, and despotically leveling nature–in a word, a downright Vandalic or Hunnish character.

Undeniable in all cases is a profound sense of truth (he knows it but won’t tell it! jc), unaccountably coupled with fast living or ruthless destructiveness. (Or  both–jc.)

Example: in this degree is the Third Reich’s Mars as ruler of the Sun (Sun’s degree) and therefore lord of the MC, viz., indicative of the government and the army.”

Also note that a solar eclipse in Mr. Trump’s Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PE) Saros Series (2 Old North) perfects on July 12, 2018 with themes of ‘unfortunate news’ and ‘endings and separations’ yet ‘fast action can bring good results’ (Brady).

edit 13 July 2018: who exactly are the results good for? jc

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.

Nov 6 Mercury Station Rx and Nov 2012 Solar Eclipse

The following text is an un-edited re-publish by its author Jude Cowell and orginally appeared on my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington; this may be the first time in all my blogging years that I’ve republished an entire article of my own:

A Solar Eclipse in intense Scorpio marks November 2012 Elections

by Jude Cowell

As you know, Scorpio is a karmic (reap-what’s-sown) sign and one must act on the up’n’up in order to make any real progress when a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio manifests. Intensity and force are provided by Scorpio’s ruler and sub-ruler, Mars and Pluto, which are most formidable when their energies act in tandem and together, often supply a karmic “something you were always meant to do” feeling. And with Scorpio, an image of political “snake oil” is typically applied.

With all eclipses behaving in Uranian fashion as ‘wild cards of the Universe’ and thus having a reputation for uncovering even the darkest of secrets, we may expect November 2012 to be revelatory for its unmasking of Scorpionic secrets with a distinct potential for betrayals and suspicion that, when used in political propaganda, may have the effect of swaying voters in one direction or another. Some of us may even resort to ‘opting out’ and staying home on November 6 but this would be a a very bad mistake, folks, because that’s what undermining factions want Americans to do. Plus, remember how neocon warmongers simply crowed over the beauty of Afghanistan and Iraq holding “democratic” elections under George Bush? Well then, even though US elections are rigged, let’s not give them up so easily for they same so’n’sos ought to be crowing for our democratic process, don’t you think?

The Solar Eclipse of November 2012

The month of November 2012 is notable not only for America’s hugely important presidential and congressional elections (November 6, with voting planet Mercury Stationary that very day @4Sag18 and turning retrograde at 6:03 pm est–is this the electorate ‘turning back’ to President Obama?), but for its 15 North Solar Eclipse @21Sco56 on November 13. This eclipse occurs close enough to Nov 6 be the Solar Eclipse of Election Day 2012 (within two weeks), with its theme of ‘joy through commitment.’ (Brady.) Well, I don’t like to type this out loud but with Mercury turning Rx on November 6, we may expect that results are disputed and that deciding outcomes may drag on, possibly until mid-December when a forward Mercury reaches and moves beyond its shadow degree of 4Sag18.

Please Pass the Turkey and the Lunar Eclipse

Though Thanksgiving Day is early this year (Nov 22), a busy November brings a second cosmic event–an almost-Thanksgiving Lunar Eclipse on November 28 @6Gem36 with the Sun falling into the happier Sagittarian zone of the Zodiac. The Moon is near transit Jupiter 11Gem54 Rx with US natal Uranus 8Gem55 stimulated. (Moon-Jupiter = US n Uranus: confidence; expectation of reward. –Tyl.) However, you’ll note that the Lunar Eclipse ruler, Mercury, is Direct @18Sco24–approaching the Nov 13 Solar Eclipse degree, but the Sun’s ruler, Jupiter, is Rx, another indicator of delays and hindrances relating to leadership (Sun-Jupiter), and potentially to money, support, bankers, and other corporatists (Jupiter.)

Also, this Lunar Eclipse is significant for being one of 2012’s close-to-Earth Supermoons, as defined by master astrologer Richard Nolle.

Another Factor about November 6’s Mercury Retrograde Station

Though Mercury trines technology inventor Uranus Rx @5Ari09–voting machine glitches made easy? or, easily solved?), its Rx Station strongly opposes President Obama’s natal Moon in Gemini (Moon = ‘reigning need’–Tyl), an indicator that his plans and schedules are in a something of a bind, and that Mr. Obama will be confronted with conflicting opinions regarding his re-election. Someone may have a change (Mercury) of heart (Moon)–whether for the incumbent president or against him remains to be seen but Mercurial young people may be of special note, and obviously reporters and journalists will be in the mix. Personally, I wouldn’t rule out the Chamber of Commerce (Mercury) playing what is perhaps the largest role in opposing the president for they seem determined to do so.

At any rate, his re-election progress is blocked and will be obstructed again once Mercury retraces its path to 1-2-3-4 Sag and opposes natal Moon. Before long, President Obama’s goals will once again be implemented from the White House Oval Office after the dust and deceptions of Election Day 2012 settle.

At least until noon est January 21, 2013 Capitol Building Washington DC

Rising once agin are the mid-degrees of Venus-ruled Taurus, a money sign with an underbelly of greed, intolerance, bigotry, racism, overindulgence, laziness, sloth, and a stubborn will that bashes against all comers. If you know anyone with a large streak of Taurus showing in their personalities, you know the sort of archetypal figure I describe here! jc (last paragraph added as an update 10.11.12)

What’s up at Jude’s Threshold?

Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve had time to post here and though withdrawal symptoms have set in, my blogging schedule has yet to return to normal because a new baby arrives home from the hospital in about an hour so you can imagine how busy my family members are these days, including me!

There’s a casserole in the oven (waiting for my Italian-food-loving daughter Maya) and her hubby, plus, there’s a 6-year old running about and wondering what’s for lunch (as they will do.)

Meanwhile, Politics and Campaign 2012 keep rolling along and though I’m keeping up with the news, I have little chance to write about anything–except for a few exceptions recently published over at Stars Over Washington, my Political Astrology blog where you’ll find Max Igan videos, political videos and links, astro-notes, politicians’ natal planets, and more.

One change while I’ve been non-blogging, however, is a new addition to my TV-watching habit on Current TV, the 9 am edt broadcast by Stephanie Miller and crew so check her out if you haven’t for “politically direct” conversation, interesting guests, and an opportunity to call in and express yourself on the political and social topics of the day.

Now–please pass the Pampers! ;p

Greider: “Still No End to ‘Too Big to Fail’ ” w 2010 Eclipses

In The Nation, William Greider writes on February 14, 2012 that there is “Still No End to Too Big to Fail” and with this, who can possibly disagree?

Now if you, dear reader, practice or follow Political Astrology at all and were reasonably cognizant ;p during Summer 2010 when the rather toothless financial boondoggle that Washington calls the Dodd-Frank Bill was haggled over and signed into law on July 21, 2010, you perhaps remember the two significant eclipses which occurred that summer–and they relate to our financial topic now, February 2012.

1. On June 26, 2010, a Lunar Eclipse manifested @ 5 Capricorn conjunct transiting Pluto, planet of wealth and stealth. Add evaluating Venus of small-amounts-of-money fame to Lord of the Underworld, spying Pluto, and we have such themes as extremes of wealth hidden in secret places, attracting organized crime (of course Washington did that years ago), and/or bankruptcy (Munkasey), for separately both the Venusian archetype and the Plutonian archetype contain ‘shadow sides’ with definite streaks of greed and covetousness running through them. These negative traits can lead or add to either expression of the combined energies of Venus-Pluto.

Plus, as one of the ‘wild cards’ of the Universe as all eclipses tend to be (‘wild’ in a fashion similar to disruptive, electrifying Uranus, the unexpected), the June 2010 Lunar Eclipse (Moon = the people) is ruled by austere, restrictive, loss-prone Saturn bwo Capricorn. As you know, his Too Big to Fail legislation and corporate welfare bailouts chose Wall Street over Main Street in President Obama’s Washington.

2. Then on July 11, 2010, a Solar Eclipse occurred @ 19 Cancer near the Twin Stars of Gemini, Castor and Pollux. I’ll allow you to draw your own conclusions about their contacts in an attempt to briefen up this post! (Click links provided below for my notes on both eclipses.)

The July 2010 Solar Eclipse fell into the 12 South Saros Series which is actually quite a positive influence: ‘successful outcomes to long-term worries (or illness); a draining issue will at first seem worse, then clear’ (papraphrasing Brady’s Predictive Astrology.)

12S happens to be the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of America’s founding which personalizes and focuses its effects within the US.

Of course, how can we know if what We the People think is the problem that needs clearing is what secretive politicians in Washington DC know is the problem. Is their
worry’ same as our ‘worry’? Will they ever be capable of setting aside political machinations and plutonian stealth tactics perpetrated in their own self-interests long enough to take the corrective actions our society truly needs?

Well, Pluto does have great capacities for regenerative self-healing, transformation, and coping ability! On this level, we might think of a Phoenix Rising from the Ashes, as the myth goes.

My former place of residence, Washington DC, as our nation’s capital, still matters to me and the success of our government is paramount in today’s oddly directed world. How unfortunate for those of us who prefer a sovereign, decently behaved America and a war-free world that the current crop of Machiavellians in Washington and in all other global capitals and nation-states, seem to practice only the darkest of Pluto’s political arts and are playing against their own populations a very deep game.

~:~

No edits have been done on either post, but if you wish to view the above mentioned Summer 2010 eclipses with horoscopes shown, try Lunar Eclipse June 26, 2010 and Solar Eclipse July 11, 2010 which also resonates with the 2007 conjunction of the Big-Banker duo of investing Jupiter and powerful Pluto.

Plus, here are a few astro-notes on the natal chart of Senator Chris Dodd written way before I realized what a dodgy character he is.

~:~

As you know, of late we’ve seen transiting Chiron at 00Pisces and Neptune, the higher octave planet of the mystical and murky sign Pisces, has been floating upon that very degree as well; America’s PE mentioned above occurred at 00Pis33 in 1776. 12S is also the PE of Nixon’s resignation and thus of Gerald Ford’s presidency–guess someone‘s ‘problem’ cleared when an unstable Tricky Dick exited the White House, and since I lived in DC during the ‘Watergate scandal’ I was more relieved than I can now express to see the vulturing varmint vamoose.

An FDA gone nuts over walnuts?

Did you hear the one about the USFDA having a policing problem over the health toutings found on Diamond’s packages of delicious walnuts?

Once I heard that a country with many laws is a crooked country. And I do believe America’s founders were of the persuasion that our nation’s laws are not meant to be more important than the communities and individuals they protect in this hard-won, Bill of Rights nation.

Okay, so maybe I’m a bit biased because walnuts happen to be my favorite nut, all things considered, and they’re being bullied (rightly or wrongly) by a goliath of State. And I don’t appreciate in the least the coldhearted police-state direction America’s governing and banking families have now determined to be ‘necessary’ for we-the-people’s futures.

Now that would be a simmering crock! For its forced implementation advantages only the power elite, not the rest of us.

Plus, I must admit to being spotted now and then tossing a few walnut chunks atop a summer salad along with some tres-thin slices of
red globe radishes unless someone tries to stop me.

Oh, and this weekend while on a family visit I enjoyed a delightful meal of Pad Thai–click for a recipe of this rather complex dish and/or to view a Pad Thai cookery demonstration video.

It’s very cool!
