Forbidden Knowledge? Oklahoma City Bombing 1995 (video link)

If you’ve followed news on the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, OK, you may wish to check out a 4-minute video on the topic:

Plus, if you’re curious about the horoscope of the bombing (April 19, 1995 9:02 am cdt OK City) try this:

Click to enlarge the chart to see expansive Jupiter @14Sag53 Rx opposing The Jolly One’s current position in Gemini. So with Jupiter turning Rx in Gemini, his 1995 position will be triggered off and on in the coming months. Perhaps we’ll hear (Gemini) more (Jupiter) about the tragic OK City terrorist attack.

Plus, the bombing horoscope’s rising degree 8Gem24 ‘brought up’ America’s natal Uranus @8Gem55, the planet of revolt, revolution, and radical politics.

There’s even an eclipse degree at Midheaven (The Goal), a Solar Eclipse that didn’t manifest until February 7, 2008 @17AQ45 in the 10 North Saros Series (issues of ‘communications, frustrating events via news, paperwork, or young people; drained energy’–Brady) which may mean nothing, of course, yet in 1995 there were questions about the destruction of papers and records in the Federal Building, if memory serves. (Ex: government malfeasance–or, records concerning the Siege of Waco February 28, 1993? As you know, 1993 is the year of the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune, planets of The Enlightenment which now, as then, promotes rationality above all else.

Their conjunctions’ primary degree of the current cycle (which began in 1993): ’18 Capricorn’ = “A Union Jack Flies From a British Warship” which Marc Edmund Jones gives as, “smug or strong-armed paternalism,” Rudhyar as,” POLITICAL POWER” in the Sabian Symbols. It’s all about keeping law and order, you see, and the dangers of abusing or misusing authority.

Anyway, one conspiracy-type tidbit of info I was unaware of when I wrote the above post concerning the tragedy in Oklahoma City is that 10N happens to be the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the secretive, lap-of-luxury Bilderberg Group which officially organized into a cabal of movers-n-shakers during May 29 — 31, 1954. You remember them–the ones who met in Chantilly, Virginia in June 2012 just as they did in June 2008 when then-candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton left their campaign trails to join the meeting. 

And then-Senator Obama emerged as the Bilderberg Choice for US president 2008…and Hillary Rodham Clinton stepped aside.

Happy 4th of July 2012! plus Autumn EQ 2012’s Sun Lib-Moon Sag! (updated))

UPDATE 9.19.12: well, DNC 2012 did quite well after all with no major funding problems in sight that I could detect. One stand-out speech was that of former Governor Jennifer Granholm whose on-point call-outs roused the delegates with slogans like, “In Romney’s world, the cars get the elevator–and the workers get the shaft!” (paraphrased, but you undoubtedly catch her meaning.)

This week, the news is all about Mitt Romney being secretly captured calling 47% of his fellow Americans “dependent on government” and other demeaning remarks concerning our characters. But if you’re like me, his arguments–presented to $50,000-a-plate donors at a millionaire’s home on May 15, 2012–ring false and out-of-touch but they do reveal what the GOP candidate and his wealthy cronies like to tell themselves about those they consider beneath them. And as usual, Mr. Romney told the people he was speaking to the bromides he knew they wanted to hear.

Such a smarmy Pisces is Mitt!

Born with Sun, Mercury, and Mars in the sign of the Two Fishes, he’s not very choosy about how he creates his wealth and doesn’t mind using deception and victimization, two of the sign’s negative traits, to step over others in his quest for status and riches.

As for his 47% discussion, the current Solar Eclipse (May 20, 2012) in Gemini (sign of communications, speeches, and telephone recordings!) has uncovered a private view of a secretive and cocooned man, just as eclipses so often do…with a ‘peep-eye’!

Actually, Current TV’s The Young Turks is providing excellent coverage of Mitt’s Misses and political coverage in general, if you haven’t checked out the channel which also airs programs hosted by Gov. Eliot Spitzer, Gov. Jennifer Granholm, the irreverant and hilarious Stephanie Miller, DC journalist Bill Press, and more.

Well, I’ll hush for now and return you to my original July 4th post which begins here, with no edits other than the one you just read:

It’s been a while since I moseyed here to my WordPress blog for good reason: setting up and composing my first-ever Political Astrology newsletter, Stars Over Washington Monthly, has kept me hoppin’. Electronically delivered quarterly, this effort covers 3 months in each issue with what I plan to be more indepth articles than have typically appeared on my blog Stars Over Washington since October 2005.

And once the shock of the tech glitches encountered while setting up the first issue (July-August-September 2012) have faded, I hope to concentrate more fully on the newsletter’s astrological and political content, and topics of national concern beginning with issue 2 (Oct-Nov-Dec 2012.)

The first issue includes (as you might imagine!) horoscopes of America’s Solar Return 2012, occurring tomorrow on Independence Day as the Sun returns to its position on July 4, 1776 (using our 5:10 pm LMT chart) and America reaches her 236th birthday, President Barack Obama’s own Solar Return 2012 of August 4, his 51st birthday (with his Chiron Return, a five-fer, in tow), and of course Autumn Equinox 2012 on September 22, when the Sun clocks in at 00Lib00:00, the Midheaven (MC) angle in our nation’s natal horoscope (5:10 pm, 00Lib53, give or take a few moments depending on your Astrology software program.)

Other topics include RNC and DNC 2012, the prominent September 29th Full Moon, plus, a handy Lunations List for the quarter is provided, a feature I plan to include in each issue with planetary links to important horoscopes (USA, the president’s, etc.)

Of interest to Campaign 2012 and America’s future direction, the MC in the Autumn EQ 2012 horoscope shows President Obama’s natal Uranus leaning forward upon the season’s Career and Public Status angle for all the world to see, along with his natal NN, a joining or Jupiterian point. No, this one astrological factor cannot be considered conclusive for an Obama win on November 6, 2012 but it’s certainly a futuristic hint of progressive Uranian proportions when added to the Equinox Sun conjunct America’s natal MC where it shines brightly each year as it spotlights November elections!

(Note: Uranus/NN = MC: professional recognition; teamwork paying off–Tyl; seeking stimulating ideas from others; sudden recognition of a joint goal–Ebertin.)

Now let’s peek at the Sun Libra-Moon Sagittarius combo of Autumn EQ 2012 (info not included in SOWM’s issue 1!), an Air-Fire blend denoting a season of grand rhetoric, exciting ideas, bluster and ‘live wire’ energies (such as with sudden storms and the lamentable power outages during raging hot weather, along with Campaign 2012 speeches, gaffes, and propaganda.)

Air-Fire is a visionary combo but may detach from deeper emotional connections, something both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have been accused of. My thought is that in such high-profile positions of extreme celebrity and visibility, this tendency is a necessary and useful talent! The signs of Libra and Sagittarius are sextile (60 degr) and thus opportunities arise…Venus and Jupiter are the signs’ rulers and when working together may bring widened horizons, lots of travel, and many enthusiastic ideas and plans.

Autumn EQ 2012’s Sun Lib-Moon Sag (Moon 27Sag21) indicates a populist flair for persuasion and publicity, perfect for Campaign 2012 activities. This combo describes those who are able to juggle several things at once, and who may fall into the ‘workaholic’ category. This is a “calm yet restless” blend with foresight (BHO’s natal Uranus at MC?), high idealism, and humorous wit. A “missionary zeal” may be noted though this trait may certainly describe Mormon Mitt Romney (though most of it sounds more like Mr. Obama.)

An ability to tune into the collective Zeitgeist supplies knowledge of “where things are going and what needs to be done”; an independent yet romantic nature is implied by this combination and a tendency to bypass protocol may be in evidence though cautions are not to over-stretch oneself or over-estimate one’s capacities, and to avoid being blind to one’s deeper motives (cautions for us all!)

Sun Lib-Moon Sag is shared natally by historian Bruce Catton, Christopher Reeve, Sean Lennon, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (Oct 20, 1955), Bob Geldof, and humorist Art Buchwald who wrote,

“I explained to him that I had simple tastes and didn’t want anything ostentatious, no matter what it cost me.”

(Wonder if it’s true that preparations for DNC 2012 are under financial restrictions due to lack of donations?)

To close, this blend has two “Images for Integration” of conscious mind (Sun) and unconscious mind (Moon–blend together for best results!) as described by Charles and Suzi Harvey in their excellent book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign:

“Bob Geldof spins Band Aid out of the air to help famine-stricken Africa…An educationalist creates a Palace of Discovery to feed and stimulate young minds.”

Both Images seem to relate to topics on the presidential campaign trail having to do with education in the US, and with increasing poverty and what to do about it–tax the poor who have no turnips or broccoli to spare (a la the GOP, Paul Ryan, and Mitt Romney), or use taxpayer resources of the US government to provide relief for our people. On November 6th, we’ll attempt to show by our votes which vision of America we hold dear: the cold-hearted Darwinian model of survival-of-the-fittest, or America as a nation who cares for her people when they need her the most.

Summer Solstice 2011: Sun Cancer-Moon Pisces

Well, it’s a Water-Water Sun-Moon blend coming up for Summer Solstice 2011 and further natural disasters cannot be ruled out and may definitely include more water-related concerns.

Click above to visit Stars Over Washington where I’ve just published the Summer Solstice 2011 Horoscope with its Political Astrology details. The chart shown is set for the White House; it’s an Hour of Jupiter, posited in 8th house of Shared Resources, Credit, Debt, and Transformation which points to our nation’s current deficit, debt limit, and budgetary issues as they continue into Summer 2011.

More details are included in the post.

A Water-Water combo may easily go misty with emotion and dissolve into tears (reminds me of John Boehner!) and is sentimental and nostalgic about the past. In Politics (which SO’W is all about), it indicates the wetness of compassion rather than the dry doctrinal purity we’re seeing in Washington from the Ayn Rand acolytes such as Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor (and Alan Greenspan, one of the primary architects of our financial misery.)

Water-Water blends also describe those of a ‘wet blanket’ temperament and I, for one, would prefer to see compassion for those in need finally take precedence in Washington over the cold-hearted ones now touting an increase of austerity for the poor and middle class while the rich get an easier ride than ever. Toss the wet blanket over the Ayn Rand-ers, I say! And yet you may disagree if you wish.

Summer Days, Watery Ways

Summer 2011 begins with Sun Cancer-Moon Pisces which is an interesting combo of energies having Moon/Jupiter and Moon/Neptune implications (for me, Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and backed by the higher octave influence of Neptune which adds to inflationary concerns.)

Yet this is an affable, kind-hearted, sensitive, romantic, and whimsical blend but with a tendency to ‘blow with the wind’ a little more than we may wish during these trying days. Yet it contains an uncanny (Cancer) insight into other people and a capacity for speaking encouraging words to those who need them.

The Arts may be on display more than usual this summer, plus, issues of adaptability and diplomacy take center stage. Negatively, there may be suspicion of other people’s motives, a wallowing in self-doubt, and a proneness toward putting people on pedestals (such as Ayn Rand?)

Relating successfully to others may be difficult due to a fear of being hurt or fooled, and daydreaming will be prevalent (most effectively channeled into art or music projects, and/or social services.)

The Sun Cancer-Moon Pisces blend’s “Images for Integration: An artist teaches recuperating patients to paint the images of their dreams in soft water colours…A lone sailboat offshore at sunset…Ol’ man river, he just keeps rolling along’…The musicals of Rodgers and Hammerstein.”

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

The Sun Cancer-Moon Pisces combination appears in the natal chart of author Herman Hesse who instructively said, “If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb us.”

Now isn’t that a perfect reminder for us all – politicians and partisans definitely included – as Campaign 2012 heats up our Summer of 2011?

Gingrich predicts who’ll run in 2012

Here’s ethics-challenged Newt Gingrich predicting which Republicans will run for president in 2012 and even Ron Paul is listed.

Gingrich’s own name isn’t excluded, of course, and for those of us who are Palin watchers, her name is near the top of the list, according to Newt the Prognosticator.

And now, without furr-ther ado, here’s a political cat limerick from the last campaign concerning Republican candidates…snarly.

Rrrraowwrrr!
