DOW drops lowest in Inaugural Day history

You know Barack Obama has been inaugurated 44th president unless you’re still hiding under that rock.

And perhaps you heard that the DOW did the naughtiest thing today:

Inauguration 2009’s Void of Course Moon

Update Feb 9, 2009: the Inauguration’s VOC Moon has resulted in unintended results already. Pres. Obama is on TV now giving his first presser as prez and we’ve seen everything from two Oaths of Office, to stand-offs with Republicans on the economic stimulus package. Then there’s Rush Limbaugh’s kerfluffle from last week saying that he wants Obama “to fail.”

And the rest of the country, too, it would seem. #

Update Jan 20, 2009: seems the frail health of Senators Kennedy and Byrd are related to the critical-degreed Inaugural Moon – the astrological Moon can relate to the physical body and medical issues.

Plus, there were some SNAFUs at security gates earlier, too, which we will hear about at some point from the disgruntled. So far those are the only crisis situations I know of occurring on this Inauguration Day 2009…unless you were one of the attendees standing in the bitter cold since 3:00 am! #

Original post begins here:

Between William Lilly and Bonatus, astrologers of old, there are unfortunate difficulties implied with a void-of-course Moon (VOC.)

A round-up of their opinions appears in Anthony Louis’ book, ‘Horary Astrology’  for that is the branch of Astrology where we most often hear the term, VOC.

Since the Moon 29Sco45 for Jan 20, 2009, noon EST, Capitol Building, Washington DC, applies to no major (Ptolemaic) aspect with another planet while the Moon remains in Scorpio, it is being considered as having no course, or is ‘void of course.’

Indications for a VOC Moon are: impediments; things will not come to a good end except with great toil and trouble; good time for festivities (Bonatus); matters go hardly unless Moon is in Taurus, Cancer, Sagittarius, or Pisces; business seldom goes ‘handsomely forward’ ; nothing will come of the matter; no significant changes (Lilly.) 

Yet in modern terms, Alphee Lavoie says that a VOC Moon means that a conclusion is already manifested, the outcome is already known, and/or there’s ‘nothing to worry about’!

One reason to hope for the best come Inauguration Day 2009  is that modern interpretations take into account whether the VOC Moon is applying closely with other planets from the sign she’s in – such as we see with Jan 20’s Moon sextiling the 10th house Sun/Mercury conjunction 00AQ+…which also happens to be Barack Obama’s natal Jupiter degree.

Well, we know that 29 degrees of any sign is a Critical/Crisis Degree and in the case of 2009’s Inaugural Moon in Scorpio, I’m relating the Moon’s condition (VOC) and degree (29) to the financial and medical crises the American people continue to suffer ungladly.

Plus, spying and surveillance relate to Scorpio, along with Big Finance, and for certain a whole lotta surveillance will be going on in the inaugural city, and a whole pack of till-raiding financial crooks are on the loose.

So…nothing to worry about? Dunno about that although some folk seem to feel (unrealistically) that having Obama, a Democrat, in the White House will solve everything. At least he isn’t a dratted Republican, right?

Will this Moon’s condition make the down-to-earth transit of restrictive Saturn to US natal Neptune (ideals; dreams) more of a shock…or will it bring solidity and realization (Saturn) to our ideals and dreams (Neptune)? (Saturn to  US Neptune August-Sept 2009.)

But I suspect 2009’s Inaugural Moon is reaching forward into Sagittarius (which sextiles Aquarius) toward the change and hope of a new presidency’s promise to put the American people’s needs first in line over monied interests. Sextiles are aspects of opportunity, but willing efforts must be made in order to benefit from them.

Whether the ‘reaching forward’ results in eventual improvements for we-the-people is a question for the future to answer.

That there will be delays and difficulties in implementing plans is a given, but I pray the ineffectuality of a traditional VOC Moon doesn’t rule the day or the modern presidential term of Barack Obama which will be, we hope, on behalf of we-the-people.

May the festivities begin!

Bush Doctrine natal chart 2002

If tech gremlins agree I’m about to publish the natal chart of the Bush Doctrine, Sept 17, 2002.

Publishing it as a Page in the sidebar will make it easier for me to return when I have time (because today I don’t) and update the chart with notes, details, whatever. But you will see that the chart is, as usual, marked with chicken scratch so there are some details for you if the image is enlarged for better viewing.

Presidents do tend to have their “Doctrines” but the Bush regime’s Doctrine is what we’re experiencing the results of now and you know how things are going in America…we’ll be fortunate if we make it in shreds and tatters by Inauguration Day 2009!

Remember after the terror twins, Bush-Cheney, muscled their way into the backdoor of the White House, many people (mostly bloggers–yayyy bloggers!) were saying that the emperor had no clothes?

He didn’t. Until the attacks of 9/11 changed the landscape of America–and the fortunes of the Bush administration.

Inauguration Day 2009 + US’ Cornwallis’ Surrender 1781

Yes, there are some time-warpish links between the chart of Cornwallis’ Surrender, set for the hour specifically chosen by Freemason, Gen George Washington, and the chart for  Jan 20, 2009 12:00 pm est Capitol Building, Washington, DC.

A new president of the USA will be installed at that time. (Not elected, mind you…selected.)

Well, I finally got around to writing a Page on a comparison between 1781 and 2009 (with chart’s image, all ascribbled in notes…sorry, but it’s as if you’re looking over my shoulder; plus, being an artist, I naturally scribble all about)–and you will find said post/chart in the Sidebar, if you wish.

But do not read the Page unless you first find yourself flumoxed by the question:

Who is the lady of the 29th degree?

I’m right there with ya…but saddled with the Saturn/North Node midpoint which will be weighing upon the Inaugural Moon of Jan 20, 2009…and at the “A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire” degree. You’ll see on the chart’s image.

*Saturn/NN = Moon: standing alone in life; widows, orphans; inhibitions; loneliness; appealing to senior persons; qualifying for responsibility.

A new president who appeals to the senior among us?

But stir it in with this formal introduction for you if you’re an American reading these words:

America, meet We-the-People on Inauguration Day 2009…buffeted by a long process, but most recently delivered  to you by the GOP, their Dem enablers, and all neocon fiends whatever their true stripe. 

They got theirs–you weren’t plannin’ to Eat that cob o’corn, were you?

 

* mdpt pics from Tyl and from Ebertin; as with all midpoint pics, things may end up as All, None, or Some Combination, just as with the rest of life.

“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…
