Alec Baldwin April 3, 1958

An actor on one of my favorite comedy shows ’30 Rock’, Alec Baldwin, has been expressing his views for some time over at Huffington Post.

Below is a link to one from Friday Feb 6 in which Mr. Baldwin calls for Tim Geithner’s resignation from the Treasurey Dept, demands that Hank Paulson’s use of TARP money be investigated and that he be prosecuted for fraud, and sends a message to John McCain to ‘shut up’ – his political career is over.

Whew! that’s a lot of direction from an actor, isn’t it?

Born in Massapequa, New York on April 3, 1958, Alec Baldwin would have had to be born between midnight and 12:54 am est on that date to have natal Moon in Earthy, modest Virgo. So I suspect his natal Moon sign is Airy Libra, don’t you?

Now I half expected to see a planet or two out-of-bounds in his natal chart given the actor’s extreme professional success and his rather brazenly expressed views, but not so.

There is an interesting midpoint picture (not dependent on an exact birth time) relating to society (Jupiter and Saturn) and power (Pluto)

Saturn-Pluto = Jupiter (28Lib26 Rx): religious or social fanaticism; plainness and simplicity.

Plus, natal retrograde Jupiter is a ‘maverick’ signature – and he does express himself in gung-ho fashion.

Mr. Baldwin’s planetary combo of Jupiter and Neptune, who together make up the ‘speculator duo’ is on his Nodal axis…

Jupiter-Neptune = NN: associations with swindlers and speculators; placing false hopes on ones associations.

And perhaps his Sun-Moon blend is of interest…

Sun Ari-Moon Lib: independence vs dependence; head vs heart; ebullient sociability and charming hospitality; idealism and hopefulness; capacity to inspire optimism; artistic imagination and talents; naturally romantic and devoted in  heroic proportions; chivalrous; an almost childlike desire for social involvement; eager for life.

Negatives may include: tendency to think great guns then peter out; letting frustration eat up confidence; need for appreciation can fuel vanity rather than creativity; vacillation; resting on laurels when new strides should be made.

‘Image for Integration:  A conductor leads an orchestra with passionate conviction and a vibrant, pulsating organism of musical perfection is created to the ecstatic uplifting of the audience.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

This Sun-Moon blend is shared by several other entertainers:

Pearl Bailey, Jean Paul Belmondo, Richard Chamberlain, Shirley Jones, Julian Lennon, Simone Signoret, Gloria Swanson, and Jack Webb (‘Dragnet’.)

Also with Sun Ari-Moon Lib: Wilbur Wright of Wright Bros fame, and essayist-journalist William Hazlitt, who said so aptly that:

“The love of freedom is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves.”

You’d think America – and Washington DC – had that down by now.

Mush! Sarah Palin back to Alaska

‘Failin’ Palin’ is a temptation but I’ll not succumb…oops! too late.

So what should the up’n’comer do and where should she go to do it?

All is not well back in Alaska with economic problems and a pipeline she touted so loudly needing attention. Plus, there are those left behind in the snow who are in a snit so it appears that the best revenge for Palin will be to govern Alaska brilliantly.

Here’s a link to the article which contains clues about Palin’s next move, and which includes a brief video of the VP candidate explaining why she shouldn’t be blamed for McCain’s loss:

http://www.slate.com/id/2203913/?from=rss

Who’s blaming? I’m thanking!

Cheney backs Palin – oh – and McCain

Endorsing from a safe location – Wyoming! – erstwhile VP Cheney has come out in full support of Sarah Palin and John McCain. You gotta love them: Palin and Cheney – two gun totin’ straight shooters around the campfire tearing raw meat with their canines, blood dribbling down their proud chins and devil take the hindmost. (Lucifer prefers dark meat of the drumstick, one assumes.)

Well, Dick’s endorsement seems kind of late but better than never, one supposes – especially for all those GOP-ers who adore the secretive dark-sider, Dick Cheney, and who plan to vote (or have early-voted) in support of Bush-Rove & friends in preparation for the US eeking through 4 more years of neocon madness:

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2008_11/015474.php

Of course, in light of where America stoops now after 8 years of Bush-Cheney, my question to them has to be: are you crazy?

~:~

Check the sidebar’s Feeds for the latest Stars Over Washington post where I make rather spiteful comments about Bush’s natal Mars in Virgo and America being Battered by Bush. Just remember: I’m holding myself back with ladylike restraint – even with Bush’s 81% DISapproval rating. And he’s still got several weeks in which to make mischief and perform mayhem.

2008 candidates Rats and Dragons!

Goldfish by Giant Kelp

Do everyone a favor including yourself and allow Margot the Mystic to explain McCain, Palin, Obama, and Biden to you using Chinese Astrology, a system of the ancient discipline that is archetypally informative and not familiar to this reluctant astrologer.

And since the candidates profess to represent the collective they should be understood on many levels because their decisions may even impact your goldfish in her bowl:

Non-voters may gain from Margot’s insights as well. Don’t stint yourself. Acquaint yourself with all the candidates as much as you can until it’s all an untidy jumble rattling round your pate.

Obama-McCain debate: high road vs low

If you reduce tonight’s presidential debate to high road vs low road, Senator Obama’s unruffled demeanor looked calm and collected as usual next to McCain’s huffing and puffing.

Looking petty was a danger for Mr. McCain and he lived down to the expectation.

My previous post must stand astrologically and the timing I used is quite close to reality – the show came on at 9:00 pm edt and the candidates began just after Bob Shieffer’s intro and they ended at 10:31 pm edt.

August 16’s (market paranoia) Lunar Eclipse began the evening at Midheaven 24AQ06, and progressive Uranus 19Pis27 Rx ended the debate near Midheaven 17Pis45. Interesting that the Sabian Symbol for ’18Pis’ is: “In A Huge Tent A Famous Revivalist Conducts His Meeting With A Spectacular Performance.”

Well, the spectacular part may be Barack Obama’s resisting the opportunity given him by the moderator to ‘go after’ Sarah Palin with the question about running mates and their qualifications. McCain, however, had some criticisms for Joe Biden, but that’s typical for those-who-run-behind.

One critique was that Biden voted against the first Gulf War. Perhaps voting against any war wouldn’t suit John McCain, but why the vote was supposedly a bad idea he didn’t say other than a mention of protecting the oil supply.

Well, yes. There is that. War to protect oil…hmmm…we export war, they export oil…yes, it Could work.

McCain also said that Biden “voted wrong” on some national security issues but it was more of a throw-away mumble so I’ll have to watch again and see if I can pick up what he meant.

And I’ll be searching the chart for Joe the Plumber who kept showing up and they had quite a tiff over whether Joe’s taxes are going up or not for when he buys the business he’s been working in for years. I’m not sure who cares the most about Joe’s situation based on this debate – but is Joe represented by Pluto, who rules pipes and tunnels? If so, he set during the debate from 7th house into 6th.

Obama’s conversation with Joe at, I assume, a campaign stop, was that “5 years ago, when you were in a position to buy the business, you needed a tax break then.” But McCain seems to think Joe’s current problems are Barack Obama’s fault now. It’s all a horrid nightmare but I’m fairly certain that it was Bush who was playing president 5 years ago.

Ben Stein is on ‘Tavis Smiley’ now saying that Obama’s long-term plans (for the economy) are excellent but that he didn’t have a short-term plan. Until the dust settles, I’m not sure who could.

Stein is “puzzled” that Obama didn’t repudiate John Lewis’ unfortunate remarks in a more forceful way.

Tavis is saying that the spin will be that McCain was whining about his feelings being hurt (by being ‘compared’ to George Wallis by Lewis, which I’m not sure is precisely what Lewis said.) 

He was whining, and as Obama said, the American people don’t care in this campaign if our feelings get hurt (paraphrased.) Now the Irish side of my family would call it whinging, know what I mean? Obama didn’t repudiate John Lewis (that would be daft) but he conceded the inappropriateness of Lewis’ remarks.

So altogether, McCain scored a few points but seemed to flail and whinge in a petty way, Obama was calm yet he did get annoyed about the ACORN accusations.

And, as stated in a post below, (at 10:31 pm actually – I pre-used 10:30 pm), Uranus ended at Midheaven with Saturn at Ic – but Uranus remained in 10th house of Career and Public Standing, while Saturn left the building by way of The Drain (Ic) – and I’m not sure if Joe the Plumber can help stop the leak.

Now If I can just figure out which candidate is Uranus and which is Saturn I might be on to something. Okay, so I think I know, but what do you think?

Obama-McCain 10.15.08 Mercury Direct Station

In New York Wednesday, Oct 15, 2008, Mercury, planet of communications such as speeches, negotiations, and debates turns Direct at 4:05:47 pm edt. At 9:00 pm edt and 10:30 pm edt, Mercury remains at the same degree and minute of Libra: 7:34…aka a Station.

And since Mercury is also the planet of thinking processes, there may be those who will make up their minds as to which candidate they’ll be voting for, independents and fence-sitters alike.

Now at 9:00 pm edt rising is 18Gem17; by 10:30 pm Cancer is rising 9:13. Also at 10:30 pm (and I’m assuming the debate may last an hour and a half) the Saturn-Uranus opposition is on the Mc-Ic axis of Career and Public Standing…Uranus conj Mc, Saturn conj Ic. That each candidate can be said to represent the establishment (Saturn) and since both say that they represent change (Uranus), my guess is that whoever shows himself to best advantage in this debate is…the Uranian.

Seriously, I suspect Obama will ‘show’ better yet there’s another method: which is more elevated, Jupiter (Republican) or Saturn (Democrat)? With that technique, Jupiter 14Cap44 begins in 8th house at 9:00 pm, and ends at 10:30 pm in 7th house; Saturn begins in 4th house and crosses the IC just prior to 10:30 pm, which is a Moon Hour.

Now there are other factors to consider: chart-ruler is Stationary Direct Mercury yet Mercury makes no applying aspects to other planets – are minds already made up? There is an applying sesquisquare (a semi-square within a square – 135 degr) from Mercury to 9:00 pm’s MC (0A33) which may be no more than ‘dynamic energy release in career matters and toward the public.’ This we would expect.

Barack Obama is more mercurial (and Uranian – he busted things up for Hillary!) than Saturnian McCain even though age-wise Obama’s just barely in the Mars range being in his mid-40s. But he’s known for his orating abilities while McCain is not, so I’ll have to “give” Mercury to Obama for this evening’s chart, so its Direct status is a good sign for the undecideds.

Now at 9:00 pm, a Mercury Hour, the midpoint of Saturn and Uranus is rising…

Saturn-Uranus = ASC: the loner’s position is established; standing alone in the world; being placed in difficult circumstances; difficulties caused by others; sharing emotional suffering with others; bereavement. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Not nice, but there it is. Bush has pretty much managed to isolate our country even while pretending to scold people who want what he labels “protectionism.” It’s America who stands alone. However you look at it, this picture describes our nation a bit too well these days. (Yet of course as always with midpoint pictures, it can be ‘all, some, or none.’)

Also at 9:00 pm overhead are Sarah Palin’s Aquarian planets. I have no plans to discuss her in detail though so I’ll leave it to someone else if they have time and stomach for it. Suffice it to say that transiting Neptune is therefore at Midheaven as well, so the usual associations of Neptune will apply in the Aspiration department: ideals, dreams, spirituality, deceptions, veils, confusion, lies, subterfuge, fraud, the masses, mass media, photography and film…and again, it’s ‘all, some, or none.’

As mentioned, Uranus ends at MC at 10:30 pm which means that at some point during the debate, the midpoint of Uranus-Neptune tops the chart which gives what I’ve always thought is an intriguing picture…

Uranus-Neptune = MC: guidance is sought from other realms or never-before-tapped sources; a peculiar disposition and strange interests; lack of stamina; a nervous breakdown; dissolution; unconsciousness; inner vision.

(This picture sometimes occurs in ‘mysterious death’ charts – just thought I’d mention it. There’s a ‘mysticism’ and an ‘enlightenment’ vibe to the Uranus-Neptune pair.)

Of course, the audience might drift off from boredom, but since this debate (and I really dislike using that word esp since we never actually have them anymore – just what passes for them) is supposed to include more discussion of practical ideas concerning our wilted economy, so surely it’ll be more revved up than that.

Job loss and the creation of them would be my idea of the first place to start.

It drives me crazier than a bedbug to think that if jobs had not been outsourced, downsized, and just basically LOST and uncreated these last few years, a lot more Americans would’ve continuing paying their mortgages and then some. Guess the CEOs and their corporate bosses didn’t care about that – or they knew  perfectly well how things would pan out, but America’s collapse really IS the plan, as I keep grousing here and elsewhere, as do others.

Well, it would be easy to go on and on about the Oct 15 debate chart for Wednesday eve but it’s time for TV’s Craig Ferguson and The Late Late Show – and a larf would be lovely about now. Even Craig’s reruns are funnier than most people’s first-runs. He has Election Fever, y’know, but it’s advanced into Election Infection.

Perhaps I can add more tomorrow before evening rolls around but here are the Sabian Symbols for Mercury – it seems to me that both ‘7Libra’ and ‘8Libra’ are instructive since we’re looking at a planetary station and both seem to apply.

So ‘7″ is emphasized now with Mercury’s Direct Station, but ‘8’ is where we’re reaching…

‘7Lib’: ” A Woman Feeding Chickens And Protecting Them From the Hawks.” GUARDIANSHIP.

‘8Lib’: “A Blazing Fireplace In A Deserted Home.” HOPE.

Should Obama-McCain tout Keynesian economics?

You can’t solve problems using the same thinking that caused the problems, to paraphrase Albert Einstein and Barack Obama but isn’t that what Obama has done concerning the engineered financial crisis?

Isn’t Keynesianism part of what was used to get the world into this mess? If so, shouldn’t McCain and Obama be tut-tutting Keynesianism rather than than touting it?

Tut-tut don’t tout!

Lehman Bros chicks home to roost Oct 10 2008

As ‘George Washington’ and others are saying, Lehman Brothers’ derivatives are at the basis of much of the collapse going on here and abroad:

http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2008/10/banks-hoarding-cash-to-pay-derivatives.html

Earlier this evening I revisited the Solar Eclipse of Sept 11, 2007, the 9 New South Series (18Vir24) and got to thinking how difficult the Series had been for many people individually, and how its effects obviously brought along issues from past years including its initial manifestion on Jan 23, 1917 at 3AQ, the position of Inauguration 2009’s Jupiter.

Here are the dates and degrees of the other manifestations of 9 New South for reference’s sake from its 18.6 year cycle:

July 30, 1935 at 6Leo (conj US natal NN);

Aug 9, 1953 at 17Leo (Venus was at 18Leo on 9/11/01 triggering the Aug 11, 1999 Solar Ecl of Nostradamus);

Aug 20, 1971 at 27Leo (opposite US natal Moon);

Aug 31, 1989 at 8Vir, the position of Saturn on Dec 11, 2007 during the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto (28Sag24); Jupiter/Pluto =  ‘the plutocrats’ (Ebertin) who can’t get enough power and wealth under their greedy, over-achieving belts.

The 8Vir connection between 1989 and 2007 gives a possible midpoint picture…see what you think:

Sun/Moon = Saturn: addressing problems; weakened system; inhibitions.

(1989 was the year of the Great Conjunction/s of Saturn and Neptune, which began their approximately 36-year cycle for our era.)

Then the 9 New South Series manifested on Sept 11, 2007 as noted, and will next occur Sept 21, 2025 at 29Vir.

9 New South tends to bring to the surface long-term worries about loved ones, health concerns, and/or issues that concern paperwork or communications; responsibilities with paperwork or other forms of communications (stock tickers? accounting practices? oversight duties?) that come home to roost (Lehman’s chicks?), and I believe that Wall Street may have suffered some unfortunate circumstances ever since that have been brought into the open by this Eclipse…not caused by the Eclipse, but by people’s malicious and deceitful actions which can’t stay hidden forever. Peep eye!

Then on Feb 7, 2008 the ‘Unmasking Eclipse’ (10 North) came along at 17AQ45 where transiting Chiron and undermining, confused Neptune have so recently been – and 10N also has links with communications, news, and paperwork, with a tendency for inhibiting or frustrating events to occur.

Next is the Eclipse Series we’re now under, 10 South, from August 1, 2008 – the Series into which John McCain and the NYSE were born. (No! this is not a McCain’s-So-Old-How-Old-Is-He? joke)…one is a veritable institution with pretensions of grandeur, and the other one is the NYSE.

Okay, so it IS a McCain’s-So-Old joke hung upon a framework of late night TV’s Craig Ferguson’s comedy routine…

Speaking of which, did you see the Late Late Show tonight?

My favorites from the newly-minted American citizen: that AIG stands for Ain’t I Greedy…and even better: Craig played soundbites of McCain doing that odd sort of “henhh?” sound he barks juxtaposed with old footage of Burgess Meredith as the Penguin from Batman.

The scary part is that McCain and the Penguin character DO sound exactly alike…very disturbing, and apt to give penguins everywhere a bad rap. But that’s Politics – guilt by association.

“And the other is___” lifted from Craig Ferguson’s monologue because I like Craig Ferguson jokeries.

Frets across America

If you’re anything like me you’re more than disturbed about the direction America has been sent toward in the last several years. Fearmongering has again been used to pass the massive ‘Bailout Bill’ which sets up a czar of finance to add to our other worries of abuse of power.

Just when events are pointing to the foolhardy ‘trickle down’ economics as obviously not working for our nation (or anyone else’s) Congress, crouched in fear and dread and threatened with martial law, has passed a bill that HONORS ‘trickle down’ vood-doo economics as if pouring gas on the flames will be of help to American families.

Of course, destroying American families is part of the plan to undermine all our anchors so we’ll be more easily coup’able and compliant.

In Astrology the Ascendant, which is the sign and degree rising at birth – how the native sees the world and how the world sees him/her – in the natal chart of George Bush is ‘8Leo’ and considering that the Sabian Symbol for this degree is: “A Bolshevik Propagandist” it’s as important as ever that We-The-People speak up for our republic, and that we pay attention to how the US has been led astray by power-grabbers and thieves.

At Stars Over Washington, where YouTube videos are easily embedded (can’t seem to figure out how to embedd them here on WordPress), you’ll discover the video of Naomi Wolf’s interview concerning the coup’ing of America and what must be done about it. Ms. Wolf is the author of, ‘Give Me Liberty.’

As we know, much damage has been done the last several years and there’s not much time to change course:

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/10/couping-of-america-naomi-wolf-video.html

So even if you believe that Barack Obama (or John McCain) intend to ‘change the course’ of America – and have the determination to follow through – it’s really up to us to do so. After all, politicians make decisions based on their careers and on behalf of the causes they espouse (and for secret causes, too) so it is doubly important to speak up while we have a few weeks, months, or possibly even DAYS, to do so.

Our Founding Fathers expect it of us – otherwise all their work and sacrifices will be for nothing and we shall lose our Great Experiment to the cause of fascism.

Astrology of the Obama-McCain townhall debate 10.7.08

If the three Sparkies who read this blog are interested, they may click to read a fresh post on this Tuesday’s Obama-McCain presidential townhall debate in Nashville, TN which is now published at Stars Over Washington:

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/10/obama-mccain-townhall-debate-10708.html

Got TV? Then you know you want to watch in fascination Tuesday evening as Midas rises in Nashville Oct 7, 2008, at 8:00 pm cdt, and February 2008’s Solar Eclipse (the ‘Unmasking Eclipse’) culminates at Midheaven for the whole world to see – perhaps a greedy Midas or two will be revealed and reviled!

Since the post doesn’t have the debate’s chart you can’t see that the 8th cusp is in Capricorn (2:23) but you will read mention of McCain’s current transit of Saturn-to-natal-Neptune. Most people and pundits are agreeing that America’s financial crisis isn’t helpful for the McCain candidacy, and Capricorn is ruled by old man Saturn who is on his transiting way to US natal Neptune in Aug-Sept, 2009. 

Asteroid Cupido, one of the significators of Corporatism, will be at 9Vir11 Tuesday night – conjunct George Bush’s natal Mars – so mention of McCain’s links with Bush are on people’s minds if not on Obama’s tongue. Perhaps audience questions will reflect this concern of more-of-Bush-policies with a McCain presidency. (A vote for McCain is a vote for Karl Rove and George Bush!)

Tuesday’s Moon is in Capricorn, too, so the people (Moon) are in a serious mood and are ambitious for improvements…Moon is in 8th house with wealth-spreading Jupiter 13Cap56 opposite US and Bush natal Suns, a time when resources dry up.

But as we saw in the last few weeks, Bush has a financial lifeline which we-the-people don’t have so he’ll weather the crisis dandily, thanks.

At Midheaven is a Fixed Star, Sualocin, of the constellation Delphinus, the Dolphin. This is a playful, helpful star which Bernadette Brady told me has an ‘artful dodger’ flavor. Celestially it resides next to the constellation Aquila the Eagle in the northern hemisphere, in an area of the heavens called The Waters.

Sualocin indicates one who is confident of mastery – a master in his own field.

The constellation Delphinus is centuries old and has many myths associated with it in various cultures: the Greeks saw it as the Sacred Fish; early Christians related it to Christ (the Fish), and in Arabia it has been called, the Riding Camel, ship of the desert. (Brady’s ‘Book of Fixed Stars.’)

Then there’s Tuesday’s chart-ruling planet of communications and speeches, Mercury, which is Rx in fair-minded Libra so we’ll have to see how the orations go as Midas rises and sadsack McCain, who says he’s most effective in townhall formats, attempts to limp over the finish line to fulfill his lifelong dream while inhibiting Saturn sits directly upon McCain’s planet of dreams, hopes, wishes, and ideals…Neptune.

However, since Astrology describes multiplicitous levels of existence, Saturn can, with some effort, bring accomplishment to long-term efforts as well as long-lasting rewards – if Mr. Accountability’s precepts have been observed and respected in the past.

So will McCain’s top-of-the-heap dreams of power and control come true at last? 

It may come down, after all is said, debated, and done, to wealthy stealthy Pluto, now unaspected and working unencumbered behind the scenes on behalf of the presidential candidate of his choice.

Because undemocratic as it is, whomever we-the-people vote for, we really vote for him.
