Welcome to South Sudan!

Comet Skies by Jude Cowell

Celebrations continue in South Sudan now an independent nation in its own right. Welcome and Congratulations to the people of South Sudan!

The new Sudanese nation is astrologically flavored by the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 since the eclipse occurred only a week ago and is the initial eclipse of a new Saros Series: new nation, new Series, and it’s the Syzygy Moon of the new nation, too (the last lunation prior to birth: a Solar Eclipse!)

Tribal, business-oriented Cancer is, of course, the sign of Home, Homeland, Domestic Scene, Family, Protection, Food, and other nurturing and security matters along with its oceanic connotations as the sign of The Crab in the sea.

If you wish to view the ‘karmic’ July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse Horoscope, its image may be found on my Political Astrology blog Stars Over Washington for those who feel inclined to peek. You’ll see that the eclipse horoscope is set for DC as is understandable for a blog concerning that city, and it includes my usual scribbled notes and chicken scratches upon the click-to-enlarge chart.

(Disclosure: if there’s a pen or highlighter nearby, this pencil artist will use it, even on a horoscope. And yes, I was the kid drawing on my parents’ walls and quite incorrigible about it! There’s just something about murals…)

So with South Sudan ‘born’ under a certain midpoint picture, its meaning may be useful to know. Independence became official at midnight, a typically used and symbolic hour for such beginnings but since this slow-moving midpoint picture has been in force for some days, the exact timing of the Independence Horoscope doesn’t affect the midpoint picture’s influence.

Much Ado about Jupiter/North Node

First, let’s consider the meaning of the Jupiter/NN pairing from Michael Munkasey’s book, Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets in the realms of Politics and Business. Both Thesis and Antithesis are given.

Paraphrasing Jupiter/NN in Politics and Business: any, all, or none may apply:

Thesis: matters pertaining legal consequences of treaties with allies; religious leaders with legal opinions expressed through friends; focusing on imports which disrupt trade or business.

Antithesis: religious groups interfere excessively with or though legal processes; a legal justice system bound and hampered by erroneous decisions about the status of groups or parties; closed legal societies.

Now you know how the nebulous energy of planet Neptune works in Astrology and in the life it describes, right? Veiling, confusing, deceptive, defrauding, merging (yet the North and South have just separated! is this a secretive merging with the NWO?), or more positively Neptune may provide inspiration, spirituality, and/or big dreams or visions. (Note the references to religion, above and below.)

So let’s add Neptune to the midpoint picture for The Gaseous Giant sits upon the mid-degree between expansive Jupiter in money sign Taurus and North Node (NN = direction; path) in questing Sagittarius – any, all, or none may apply:

Jupiter/North Node = Neptune being deceived by promises or intentions of friends; errors in judgment about the desires or needs of associates; a need for religious contacts; seeming more mystical or mysterious than intended; emotional inhibitions within partnerships; indecision or vacillation; unreliability; instability; disappointment; getting sober again (after celebrating?! jc); lack of clarity about objectives; sharing the spirit but not much else. (Tyl; Ebertin; Munkasey.)

And of course, for South Sudan the off-on energies of the Cardinal Grand Cross/Square patterns are in play as well and I know that the country’s independence has been a long time coming…and now the die is cast.

Now if you toss your browser in any direction, you’ll find many excellent articles written about the influences of these difficult planetary patterns which the world has been dealing with since 2010 for they involve the Saturn-Uranus opposition squaring powerful, manipulative, secretive Pluto, guardian and horder of The Wealth.

Plus, three major generational planetary cycles are being activated now: the Great Conjunction/s of *Uranus and Pluto in the mid-1960s (collapse of the old order, protests, strikes, street violence, Civil Rights, etc), the Saturn-Pluto cycle, the current one which began on November 8, 1982 with their one Great Conjunction @ 27Lib36 (hardship, hard labor, cruelty, violence) – this was during Reagan’s era as was the 1988 Great Conjunction/s of Saturn and Uranus which occurred 3 times in the 27-to-30-degree range of Sagittarius.

Yes, the tension between status quo Saturn (restriction; the past) and independent, freedom-loving Uranus (progress; the future) is palpable these days. As a pair they are associated with the Middle East, particularly with Israel and Palestine.

Other transiting planets have and will come along to trigger, activate, or set off the Cardinal (outgoing, initiating) energy on the Cardinal Cross of Matter (physical plane) so the entire world remains in-the-woods on that score as difficult conditions on Earth are reflected above in the Heavens.

My hope is that all nations, new and old, attain Peace without interference from the power elite’s globalist take-over artists. Such a vain hope, I know!

*The closest that transiting Uranus and Pluto come to an exact square (from Aries to Capricorn) is on August 8, 2011 when Uranus-Pluto energies crescendo so this date is definitely one to watch.

Similar themes or events from the 1960s may resurface more obviously in August 2011 to be dealt with again and/or a ramping up of their signature issues will be experienced especially by individuals, nations, or groups having natal planets on or near the mid-degrees of Virgo/Pisces or Gemini/Sagittarius. jc

Posting on Bill Gwatney

Yesterday I searched for the birth data of Dem Party chairman Bill Gwatney who was shot Wednesday at the Little Rock Arkansas Dem headquarters and died some four hours later.

Finding his birth date rather quickly I chalked up a sunrise/solar natal chart, looked at transits for August 13, 2008, ‘shortly before noon’ in Little Rock, then this morning I published here an entry on the August 13 transits to Mr. Gwatney’s chart.

The date was incorrect, as I find today. Gwatney was born Aug 26, 1959, but now I don’t have time to go through the entire process again yet there are three transits I may mention:

Pluto, the assassin, now backed into Sagittarius, has been in contact with Gwatney’s natal Saturn, planet of responsibility and authority. His Saturn is at 00Cap32, a critical point in any chart.

Pluto-to-Saturn is a time when past actions come back around and become important to the present. Current circumstances may be completely transformed, and attitude adjustments must be made if one has not previously taken responsibility for one’s actions.

And what may be most telling to Wednesday’s miserable tale: abuse of authority brings confrontation and correction.

Being shot is a hard way to be presented with confrontation, plus, his recent Saturn-to-Pluto (3Vir53) transit may have added to the hardship. Saturn-to-Pluto involves one’s use of power when a loss of control may occur because circumstances are simply too large to handle.

No one seems to know yet why Timothy Dale Johnson committed this murder although his firing from a Target store earlier in the day certainly may have set him off. Bacchus conj Mars Wednesday, so drinking may have spurred his actions.

But why Gwatney?

Mars, the shooter, is just past Gwatney’s natal Mars 23Vir16, so he very recently had a Mars Return, a new 2-year cycle of activity.

And you know where revolutionary Uranus is – 21Pis49 on Wednesday morning – so Gwatney has been in process of having a Uranus-opposite-Mars transit, when there is danger in the environment and actions taken against him are completely unexpected.

The outcome of a hostile physical stand-off is unfavorable when Uranus opposes natal Mars (as I’ve previously fretted on behalf of Barack Obama who has near the same Mars degree.)

My sincere condolences go out to the Gwatney family and friends, and I hope my peek at his birth details isn’t too intrusive at such a sad and private time for it is intended to be a search for understanding of what seems, at this point, to be an inexplicable and highly regrettable tragedy for all the families involved.

McCain’s rocker

Some are saying that John McCain is off his rocker with this one:

http://thinkprogress.org/2008/08/01/mccain-suggests-military-style-invasion-modeled-on-the-surge-to-control-inner-city-crime/

I say that, yes, McCain’s remarks are part of a process leading America to martial law. Ideas are trotted out innocently enough – and with media assistance, of course – to see how the masses react (or if we ignore them) so that the next step may be decided upon with an eye always toward implementation of the larger agenda.

At some point I shall publish the natal chart of Modern Humanity (1892) which has reformer Uranus at 3Sco56 Rx (first house.) This year we have the transiting Saturn/Pluto midpoint conjunct this Uranus…

Saturn/Pluto = Uranus: brutal efforts to start a new order; an attack regardless of potential losses; sudden acts of violence. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

The Family, The Brethren, The Syndicate…no matter what you call them the world is in the grip of robbers and criminals some of whom pass themselves off as “Christians.” CINO…in name only, I say.

In fact, the National Prayer Breakfast held at the White House every February (begun in 1953) is staged by the secretive organization “the Fellowship” or “The Foundation.” This the group that owns the fancy townhouse where six US congressmen have been paying a cushy $600 month rent. All have denied association or even knowledge of The Fellowhip – their landlord, and the Prayer Breakfast organizer.

And the organization has operated under several names to keep things on the down-low and public scrutiny at a minimum.

Of course, as you would suspect, members of this secret world dominators’ group are under a secrecy oath so you would expect the renters to be mum about the subject. And the Prayer Breakfast is a tool used for recruiting wolrd leaders (DICTATORS) to get together and schmoose with the wheeler dealers of Washington.

Arlington, Virginia’s ‘Ivanwald’ which is located at the end of Twenty-Fourth Street, seems to be their headquarters (but I didn’t just type that out loud and you didn’t read it here!)

You may wish to read more on this subject if you’ve not glommed onto it already:

http://www.alternet.org/story/16167  ‘Undercover among America’s Secret Theocrats’

and there’s more here including Pat Robertson’s stepping down from the presidency of the Christian Coalition on Dec 24, 2001, so that George W. Bush could take his ‘rightful place’ as head of the ‘true’ American Holy Christian Church :

http://simplyapalling.blogspot.com/2004/07/dominionism-and-yurica-report.html

~:~ Oops! I’m getting a ‘Blog Not Found’ message for the above link but I’ll leave it awhile – perhaps it will perk up soon, dear Blogger… ~:~

“And then the mighty Bush bombed the Holy Land to smithereens with rockin’ McCain awaiting in the wings…”

And as you noticed, it’s “dominionism”- yet another of Pluto/Chiron’s oppressive -ISMs. This may be a clue to Dick Cheney’s Progressions for Sept 11, 2001 which placed his Pluto/Chiron midpoint at Midheaven by progression, and Mc is the Goal Point of the chart.

Well, Darkside has had ‘dominion’ ever since.

As mentioned before, I am a Christian – and these ‘holy’ bombing jackals don’t represent (or impress) me in the least. The Truth will out one day – and it won’t be a politician’s version!

Oklahoma City Bombing: April 19, 1995

Horoscope of Oklahoma City Bombing 1995

Oklahoma City Bombing, April 19, 1995; 9:02 am cdt (click to enlarge chart.)

UPDATE April 15, 2010: Note that US natal Uranus 8Gem55 is rising with its revolution/rebellion tendencies and sudden disruptions.

Original post begins here:

There are more factors to mention in this sad chart than there’s time for this morning, but I’ll try because today is the 13th anniversary of the day of horror in Oklahoma.

9:02 am cdt–Hour of the Moon–changes, instability, publicity; no out-of-bounds planets so all the actors are in sync, and there’s a Hard Rectangle of antagonism and aggression overhead.

Charles Jayne named the configuration ‘Hard Rectangle’ and I’ve highlighted it in green for you. It contains two oppositions whose ends are both semi-square and sesqui-square one another, both of which are minor aspects of nagging irritability.

The opposition between Chiron (the wound) and Saturn (control; authority; restriction) is difficult in itself indicating a “rigid fighter for humanitarian causes” (Clow, ‘Chiron’) which has links to structural breakdowns and to major shifts in technology (PROMIS software’s progeny a la 1995?) – the Hard Rectangle pattern adds to the fated difficulties (Saturn is a planet of fate and both Saturn and Chiron are at 20 degrees, indicating the involvement of a fated or karmic condition.)  We may also infer that ‘Chiron wounds Saturnian stability and/or authority’ with this opposition, and ‘letting go the rule of the father.’

The Hard Rectangle pattern triggers the opposition to act with more drive than it otherwise would – the added tension shows antagonism and a lack of compromise with others – on all sides. (Tierney).

February 2008’s Solar Eclipse is at the “Unmasking” degree at Mc (the Goal; Objective) of the bombing’s chart (to the minute! both 17AQ45) the keyphrases for the 2008 Eclipse may apply: communications; frustrating or inhibiting events via news, paperwork, or young people; energy feels tired and drained. (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’)

There’s a “hidden square” (256 degr) between violent Mars, the activist and instigator (at IC, the Foundation Point) and secretive saboteur Pluto at “1Sag”…”A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire” degree. Hmmm…was a ‘secret hand’ (Pluto) involved? Pluto also is a significator of the underworld, aka organized crime syndicates.

As you know, a Mars/Pluto square can be overly aggressive, reckless, foolish, and abusive…and angry.

Pluto conjoins asteroid, Diana, with keywords: survival, self-protection; where one expects absolute respect and obedience as if one is divine, and when prominent, shows one who is intolerant of “lesser types.”

(Diana’s keywords sound like some politicians I know.)

Mercury (young people) is conjunct South Node (SN = separation) and asteroid, Niobe, “the grieving mother” in the karmic, behind-the-scenes 12th house which shows the poor little children in the Murrah Building’s daycare center. Did they die for politics and misdirected ideals?  How cruel and obscene is that?

You see that Uranus and Neptune are a bit beyond their Great Conjunction of 1993 (the NWO pair) with Uranus conjunct US Inaugural Sun (Jan 20th, noon, 00AQ+) So rebellious Uranus meets US leadership (Sun = POTUS) and the president may act in ways that are uncharacteristic.

Needless to say, obscuring, deceptive Neptune will go on to conjunct the 00AQ+ degree as well, a time when inspirations are misguided and there may be a Neptunian veil thrown over the identity. 00AQ+ is the degree of all US Inaugural Suns, btw (Jan 20)…Sun in a national chart = the leader; in America’s case, the president.

Plus, Uranus to US Sun, as we have here, is an ego-awakening time of restlessness and finding a new identity or a new way to gratify the ego.

If you remember the shock of this bombing–possibly a false flag op upon America–you know it shook our sense of identity in similar fashion to the Siege at Waco, Texas (Feb 28, 1993) which also had technological implications mixed with fraud and deceit.

So with the propaganda promoting Mercury/Pluto midpoint of surveillance at Midheaven (MC–the Goal) we have the potentials of this picture…

leadership; great perception of any situation; resourcefulness; coping ability; keen judgment; foresight; the ability to arrange matters well.

Another hmmm…depends on who is doing the arranging and coping and for what reason. One thing we know: violence was used.

I’m thinking of the first two years of Bill Clinton’s presidency – before and AFTER this attack….just as I do of 9/11 and the Bush-Cheney change of identity afterwards. Prior to the attacks of 9/11, things weren’t going so well for the GOP’s unstable coup of the White House, nor for SCOTUS’ reputation because of their primary part in the Bush-Cheney coronation (and that of then-Florida-governor Jeb, George’s brother).

But back to the 1995 chart…what else? Let’s see…a 29-degree Sun – 29 is a critical or crisis degree, and Moon 24Sag15 conjunct Morya, with her obvious link to death. Wounded healer Chiron conjoins Fixed Star, Denebola, keywords: ‘to go against society,’ or, ‘out of the mainstream.’

One midpoint picture involves the cruelty and brutality of Saturn and Pluto, planets that were in opposition on 9/11/01…

Saturn/Pluto = Neptune: lies and fraud; desire to harm others secretly; danger; unstable life situation because of the inexplicable, because of fear; being doubted, not being seen for who one is; immorality; danger (Ebertin).

Does this important picture describe McVeigh and Nichols – or someone with even more to lose and something incriminating to hide? They sure executed McVeigh in a hurry, didn’t they? Allegedly.

One more thing I’ll add for now: transit Neptune of deception and illusion fame is in process of opposing the US natal Mercury in Cancer, a period when misunderstandings and frustrations increase especially in regard to Facts and Figures. Accurate records of sales and business dealings are subject to error, deception, and loss, and fanatic ideas and ideals may enter the environment. Others may point out inaccuracies, mistakes and delusions–quite an inconvenient time for the dishonest among us, wasn’t it?

Specialized skills end up not filling the bill and dependable people tend to disappear under this transit.

Well, I must disappear for now, so let me know if you have queries or comments about this chart, okay?
