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 to leave White House – secrets to go with him

Guess this White House’s so-obvious demonstration in its waning months that there are many secrets to squash and piled-up bodies to hide escapes our Mr. Skull & Bonesman Bush:

http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/20081129_bushs_11th_hour_bid_for_secrecy/

January 20, 2009: I can see Bush and Cheney now in my mind’s eye…high-tailin’ it from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and down the street…a long, long, long line of skeletons in tow like a shadowy conga line…

Did I mention the conga line is long?

more notes on Inauguration 2009

Having just updated some notes on Inauguration 2009’s Page (see sidebar) you may wish to check it out especially if America’s historical links between 2009 and 1748 might be of interest to you.

Do you believe that the White House just a big white lodge? When considering the thoughtfully laid out town of Washington DC with its abundance of esoteric Masonic emblems and shady avenues leading to certain temples and pentagrams, I’d have to agree.

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. This is my journey; these are their stories…
