Posts Tagged ‘8 Leo: A Bolshevik Propagandist

Bolshevik crimes old and new

An article by Andrew Nagorski caught my eye concerning Sean McMeekin’s book, ‘History’s Greatest Heist: the Looting of Russia by the Bolsheviks’ which tells in harrowing detail the rise of the Bolsheviks in Russia, their plundering of the country to finance their power-grabbing plans, and the institution of Communism.

The story reminds me of Bush’s current looting of America especially considering the Sabian Symbol for George Bush’s Ascendant degree, ‘8 Leo’…

“A Bolshevik Propagandist.”

(‘Sabian Symbols in Astrology’ Marc Edmund Jones.)

By 1917, a bottomless pit had opened under the lives, power, and wealth of Europe and when US President Woodrow Wilson tipped the balance by entering the formerly neutral America into the fray, war was declared on the Central Powers (now Germany, Austria-Hungary, Turkey and Bulgaria.)

Wilson called it the “war to end all wars'”(not) and said it would “make the world safe for democracy” which is a promise war never fulfills. In fact, WWI was the seed for the wars that have followed. Well, at least those were Wilson’s public justifications for taking America to war – sound familiar yet?

And when the transiting South Node, a separative point of neurotic behavior, reached ‘8Leo’ the Solar Eclipse of Feb 3, 1916 manifested as a catastrophic Total Eclipse in Aquarius (13:30) – conj disaster-prone Uranus and opposing warring instigator Mars.

This Eclipse marks the outbreak of the Battle of Verdun on Feb 21, and is in the 8 North Series (‘new-found inspiration; prophetic dreams; visions.’  -Brady; last occurred: Mar 29, 2006, ‘9Ari.’)

And a Great Conjunction of Saturn-Pluto had kicked off the loss, hardship, and cruelty in 1914-15:

1. Oct 4, 1914;  2Can14:

2.  Nov 1, 1914;  2Can04

3. May 19, 1915; 00Can54, a World Point where major events tend to occur which affect large numbers of the world’s population.

Plus, 2 to 3 Cancer is conj US natal Venus, as you notice.

So the rise of the Bolsheviks and other dictatorships indicates that the world wasn’t rendered “safe for democracy” after all, and as diplomatic Jupiter met with idealistic Neptune (as they will again 3x in 2009), the planet’s hope for peace resided with the League of Nations, a Jupiter-Neptune entity, as is the United Nations, founded in 1945.

(Jupiter conjuncted Neptune on Sept 22, 1945 at 5Lib54, which is the degree of George Bush’s natal Neptune, btw.)

This implies that 2009’s three conjunctions of the speculator/wastrel pair, Jupiter-Neptune, will bring the UN up for more attention and use in spite of their past “peacekeeper” problems  (raping, robbing, and evicting those they were supposedly sent to protect.)

Hopefully, you will not let a little Astrology as given herein dissuade you from reading Nagorski’s article for you may gain insight into what Bush-Paulson & Co have been up to and how – as if you hadn’t noticed already!


Then there’s the story of  Bush’s grandpa diverting millions in gold to Germany to aid Hitler’s rise to power in the 1930s – but that must be a tale for another post.

Bush at the helm: can a lifetime be enough?

Dick Cheney is in association with a group who call themselves “Family Security Matters” and an article on a Bush dictatorship-for-life was published online then taken down (perhaps as damage control.)

Guess the gloriousness of such a fascist idea eluded too many people – at least until the next catastrophic emergency occurs or is staged.

One of my favorite reporters, Larisa Alexandrovna, has the scoop here: 


Well, Bush’s natal Ascendant degree, “8Leo”, does have the Sabian Symbol: “A Bolshevik Propagandist” as we know. Wonder if Bush wishes he’d obfuscated his birth time years ago so astrologers would quit mentioning this inconvenient fact? The ASC describes the individual’s persona – it’s how the world views him, and how he views the world and answers the WHAT? question of the horoscope.

The Jones’ version of the Symbols gives more details:

Keyword: LEAVEN…

pos: a determination to share the soul’s vision and to make a permanent impact on history (‘permanent’!! that’s just what we’re talkin’ about here- jc);

neg/unconscious/shadow side: futile ranting against a multitude of superficial ills.

He is a ranter, all right. As he unconsciously spilled in public during his early presidential days: he’s a propaganda catapulter!

Jones goes on to say that this degree emphasizes “recurrent battles over social and political concepts.”

So for neocons, EIGHT YEARS isn’t recurrent enough?

Nostalgically, all this casts me back to Bush’s ranting Social Security Tour ad nauseum. The American taxpayer should have had a refund on that massive bit of political expenditure. While hiding their real reasons for this daft plan, Bush-Cheney’s urgency was probably due to anticipation of the current market meltdown we’re now experiencing – but although the plan to undermine and dissolve Social Security didn’t barf its way into law immediately as they wished, you don’t hear much about what would’ve happened to the people’s SS retirement funds if it had.

Easy to see in retrospect as it was in real time – privatizing SS is Not a Good Idea, we said, and sparks flew, accusations were made.

Yet neocons thought that by targeting the young, the boondoggle would fly, but it sank titanically along with Bush’s approval rating. Yet the push WILL be renewed if it suits – assuming that some form of the NYSE still exists in future and that the US government isn’t in complete shutdown with Bush as dictator.

Congress isn’t privy to the Department of Homeland Security’s plan for continuity of government in case of emergency, you know. Guess that’s well-described by the ‘Sibly chart’ for America’s Saturn/Neptune straddling Midheaven…Saturn/Neptune may be taken as “secret government.”

Well, if you’re self-employed like me, you’ve paid 100% of your own FICA taxes for several years, and I for one would appreciate it if they kept their claws off my account – and stay away from what they haven’t pilfered before now. I had the distinct feeling during Bush’s Reform SS Tour that the movement to privatize SS was more than a money grab, it was an effort to hide what Washington politicians had been doing with our SS fund for year$.

In the 2000 campaign, Al Gore’s “lockbox” was made a laughing stock by neocons yet surely the SS “lockbox” would’ve turned out to be as empty as Fort Knox is of gold! Yet the empty coffer had to be kept hidden by a Republican president, didn’t it?

“Success at all costs” – it’s always been a perfect mantra for dictators everywhere.

Perhaps this is why John McCain was accepted as the Republican nominee – his presidential services won’t be needed with Bush staying on like other dictators have found ways to do. It remains to be seen whether my own ranting is moot, and for the sake of the only nag in the 2008 race for me – America – I sincerely hope I’m ranting for nothing.

Bush’s ‘red legacy’ will outlast a proposed ‘blue legacy’

War Abroad and Poverty at Home

By Paul Craig Roberts
The “world’s only superpower” is so broke it can’t even finance its own wars.

Even if George Bush creates marine reserves in every ocean in order to leave behind a so-called ‘blue legacy’ to polish up his overspent and warring presidency, the red ink he’s leaving behind for the American people to swim in will drown it out–and that’s not even mentioning the red life’s blood of millions of people spilled with Bush at the helm.
Years ago, when I was a member of The Fray at Slate Magazine, I wrote against the wasting of American soldiers, weaponry, and money as being part of al-Qaeda’s long range plan to take down our nation. You can hardly imagine the crude barbs directed at my stupidity for saying that super-rich America could be ever bankrupted and weakened by any means. Some of them were in on the game, but not the average self-imagined elitist.
Seems The Fray’s many neocon Bush supporters of the day believed that America’s pockets were deep as the oceans and absolutely impossible to deplete.
Why, according to them, little me (writing as ‘peacely2’) bordered on being unpatriotic and quite mad, as you may imagine. Vitriol met all my attempts to warn against wasting our treasure.
But it’s 2008 and our treasure is lost after several years of Bush speculation and waste, so I hope those incredulous Fraysters have their credit card bills up to date, because it’s no longer a cerebral argument or a rude bragfest.
Perhaps their eyes have been opened by recent developments, now that the wolf is at the door along with the barbarian at the gate–and thanks must go to the neocons, their puppetmasters, minions, enablers, and dupes…pocket-liners all, at US taxpayers’ expense. 
And I must remember to thank George W. Bush above all for he’s been the mouthpiece of globalists everywhere.
He defined his presidential job early on, you know–as “catapultin’ propaganda,” and he’s filled those boots rather too well with his natal Ascendant (Asc = his nibs himself) at “8 Leo”…
“A Bolshevik propagandist.”
In his book on the Sabian Symbols, “An Astrological Mandala” Dane Rudhyar adds to this word picture. You may not like it, but I’m giving it to you anyway…
“A Communist Activist Spreading His Revolutionary Ideals”…
Keynote: The emotional and ideological attempt to return to a state of non-differentiation and chaos as a prelude to a new type of order.”
CATABOLIC ACTION…one witnesses a struggle for personal and dictatorial power.#
It will be interesting to see who the NWO allows into the Oval Office on Jan 20, 2009, for you can be sure of it–they haven’t planned and worked for so many years only to give up control of the White House now.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are.
