Hiroshima: and black rain fell

with 5 comments

A few weeks ago I was studying Harry Truman’s natal chart along with the horror-scopes for his atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as I watched PBS’s American Experience saga on Truman – primarily of the Hiroshima bombing since it was the ‘first’ – a factor of astrological and historical importance.

August 6, 1945 becomes August 6, 2008:

Tonight, as the 63rd anniversary of the Hiroshima abomination passes into history, I’ve run across John Pilger’s article which links the lies of Hiroshima with today’s lies. To me, it sounds like the same old song, second (or fifth) verse, how about you?

And I keep reading and studying and trying to find the Exact Moment that America First became such a Great Big Fat Lying Nation so that I can calculate a natal chart to use in place of the chart/s from July 4, 1776. It would seem more appropriate for today’s Washington liars and warmongers who continue to undermine and ruin my country – the only country I’ve ever had or known.

Like all Amercans, I, too, was entreated in my school days to swallow the “atomic bombs ended the war so they’re okay/lesser of two evils/lives were saved” myth with which Truman and his political colleagues bamboozled the public, including little unaware me.

They should’ve been ashamed. They were not. Nor are Bush, Cheney, or the hawks with which they soar.

Yes, it may be impossible to determine the exact date or hour of America’s character change, but if you have a viable suggestion or opinion on the subject, please let me know somewhere on this blog…even if you think she’s always been this rotten at heart.

Actually, Andrew Jackson’s White house tenure might be a good place to start and I do have his natal chart.

Well, for your consideration, here’s John Pilger’s article, The Lies of Hiroshima Are the Lies of Today:


Improvements cannot come where flaws are denied!


9.6.08: another possibility for America’s change of character would be the switch from March inaugurals to the January 20th date…this occurred during Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s tenures and caused the Office of the President (as signified by the rising sign/degree) to change and the Sun’s position to morph from 13Pis+ to its current 00AQ+ (near US natal Pluto ’28Cap’…Pluto the planet of atomic and nuclear power – that could certainly Be the Big Change.)

Last US Inauguration in March: March 4, 1933, then on to Jan 20, 1937, where it has remained ever since. FDR was sworn in twice more, of course: Jan 20, 1941, and Jan 20, 1945.

Harry Truman necessarily took the reins on April 12, 1945, then was sworn in on Jan 21, 1945, and Jan 20, 1949.

Your thoughts?
