USA’s Tax Day 2009: Mars conjunct Uranus

This year, America’s Tax Day (or as I usually think of it unfondly: ‘IRS Day’) is marked astrologically by a conjunction of Mars and Uranus, whose combined energies are given by *Ebertin as:

‘violent people; fighters for freedom; revolutionaries.’

How synchronistic can ‘As Above, So Below’ be?!

April 15’s Tea Party rallies across our nation are being billed as “a new American revolution.”

The recently formed political organization, the Boston Tea Party (an offshoot of the Libertarian Party) has based its stated platform on Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty. From withdrawal of ALL US troops from all nations, immediate ending of warrantless surveillance, searches and seizures, ending of deficit-ballooning government spending including Mr. Obama’s stimulus plan and the Bush-Paulson-Obama bailouts, AUDITING of the Federal Reserve Bank, and other such noble ideas, we may be tempted to think that April 15’s Tax Day Tea Party rallies really are only grassroots events. Or at least, we are encouraged to believe it to be so.

Me, I’m not so certain, and believe that this remains to be seen – although it may not be seen, for the ongoing transit of Neptune to America’s natal Moon (we-the-people) is causing all manner of deceit, fraud, dissolution, and confusion within our environment, including personal domestic scenes. Foreclosures and sleeping under bridges are part of this transit as is the movement to undermine American sovereignty.

And that’s not the whole of it, so if you wish to read more, try today’s SO’W post Tax Day Tea Party Astrology, if you like.

Plus, you may wish to refresh your memory concerning the original Boston Tea Party bwo Wikipedia.

I did, and it didn’t hurt a bit.

April 15, 2009 – Mars conj Uranus at 24Pis27 **Sabian Symbol for ’25Pisces’:

‘The Purging of the Priesthood’…


positive expression: revolt against all superficial exaltation of human nature;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: blind bigotry and vindictiveness.

Oh dear! Those who are organizing the Tax Day Tea Party rallies and some who participate may be ‘bigoted’!

Many protesters are emphasizing anti-Obama-administration sentiments, even though the financial heisting and bailouts of summer/autumn 2008 began under the Bush administration.

But Pres. Obama took the financial baton from Bush on Jan 20, 2009 and proceeded to fill his economic team with Clintonites, Goldman-Sachs denizens, and other world bankers – a big fat clue to Mr. Obama’s true allegiances, I fret.

Yet ‘bigoted’ also includes class warfare of the rich vs the lower/middle classes (those dratted unwashed masses) and we know that the top earners in our society are very afraid their tax monies might go to someone who actually needs aid just to survive…perhaps it’s ‘survival of the unfitted’ since being ones brother’s keeper has gone totally out of style with the morally suspect monied class.

Republican vultures need “fresh blood” says Cornyn

Yes, he did. But I added the ‘vulture’ reference. Sorry.

Republican spokesman John Cornyn says the Republican Party needs new faces and fresh blood – and he makes them sound pretty desperate for a power snack:


You know, in progressions we saw that the Republican Party’s natal chart reached its Secondary Progressed Full Moon (12Gem08 conj US natal Desc in the ‘Sibly’ chart of 5:10 pm LMT) on Feb 18, 2005; Sec Sun 12Sag08 conj US natal ASC…indicating the ‘waning of light’ for the organization, and, through its close conj with America’s ASC (the nation), a waning of the nation herself under Republican rule.

Further emphasis was provided by Dec 24, 2008 which saw America’s own Progressed Full Moon 4Vir10 (Sec Sun 4Pis10 – see Pages in sidebar for chart) as the Bush-Cheney-GOP axis of destruction of America neared completion of its neo-conic work and the Big Heist was implemented bwo the Bush-Paulson ‘Bailout Bill’.

Any type of Full Moon – whether by transit, lunations (such as Feb 9, 2009’s Lunar Eclipse  21Leo, hours before Pres. Obama speaks Monday evening), or in progressions such as we discuss here, represents the culmination of a cycle begun at the last New Moon when the ‘clock’ began ticking on that cycle of activity.

Perhaps the Sun Sag-Moon Gem combo of the R-Party’s Sec Full Moon may be of interest before their progressions enter the Disseminating stage on Mar 19, 2009, a stage of putting out the ideas (they seem to have responded early because of the presidency being in Democratic hands):

Sun Sag-Moon Gem: ‘Robin Hood as a young boy plays truant from school  to go to his archery lesson, but ends up teaching his card tricks to his master.’ (“Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Now in my memory I can’t think of a single time that the GOP has ‘robbed from the rich to give to the poor’ – in fact, this seems to be their main objection to Obama’s stimulus/recovery plan…it channels a bunch of money to help the average Joes and Jills of this laid-off nation.

But the Rs do excel at robbing from the poor to give (more) to the rich, imo, with their own bank accounts very much included.

Must be Astrology’s AC-DC character – energy flows happily in both directions. And as with most things, it’s Motive that makes all the difference in how chart factors are utilized – for ill or good.

Well, for several years the American people have depended on the Republican Party to do right by them, and we know where that led. That they can be allowed to obstruct aid when the American worker has come to a point of desperation is not something the Democrats better roll over and ignore. (And if they do, they’re complicit!)

So if Pres. Obama’s speech Monday evening (or whenever it’s given) can’t go over the heads of these reverse-Robin Hoods and talk directly to the American people, then Barack Obama isn’t the orator he’s said to be, and our nation’s future is washed down the drain of small thinking and political upsmanship on behalf of a party devoid of all empathy for the common man, and whose light deserves to fade.

It’s America’s waning light I fret over!

“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. This is my journey; these are their stories…
