Threat level up as Jupiter returns to 9/11/01 chart

August 2013: An Astro-Peek at Activations of the 9/11/01 Horoscope

by Jude Cowell

As you’ve heard, the US government is reporting an increase in terrorist “chatter” as the 12th anniversary of the WTC attacks of 9/11/01 approaches. This year marks the first Jupiter Return to the 9/11 horoscope for Jupiter’s cycle is 12 years in duration.

See Threats Against Embassies Very Reminiscent of Pre-9/11 Chatter.

On the morning of September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am edt NYC, monied Jupiter was posited in 9th house of Foreign Lands and Philosophy @11Can35 and carried the Sabian Symbol, “A Chinese Woman Nursing a Baby with a Message”, a word picture I attempted to illustrate a few moons ago. View the image here if you wish.

Naturally the symbol’s reference to our creditor China and to a ‘message’ is intriguing especially since it attaches to 9/11’s position of Jupiter the Banker–in the 9th house of foreigners. This is not to leave out Middle Eastern or other actors on 9/11/01 but to focus on Jupiter since the Great Benefactor now returns to the natal position he held on that game-changing morning.

Actually, Jupiter’s retrograde in Cancer later this year creates a “three-fer” of returns to the 9/11 natal degree with the first return occurring on August 18, 2013, the second on February 7, 2014 (Rx), and the last return on April 2, 2014. This extended return period indicates a prolonged season of concerns involving terrorism with increased threat levels on into 2014, and it has Jupiterian financial implications as well though effects may be of a stop-go nature.

Raising the threat level makes sense and yet…will the “more chatter” situation be used in an attempt to justify intrusive NSA surveillance programs and leave them as they stand–even those used against the privacy of the American (and other) people who have nothing at all to do with terrorism? If we begin to hear politicians and pundits spouting such equivocations, perhaps we’ll be pardoned for having our suspicions if any attack/s occur–or are thwarted–by America’s total surveillance prowess.

Well, it’s somewhat confusing to hope (a Jupiter word!) that this is or isn’t the case since our
distrust of the US government
is also at high levels (or depths!) and this may cause any violent attacks relating to 9/11/01 or otherwise appear as much like a false flag op as the original event still seems to many who doubt the ‘official version’ of 9/11/01.

(And tell me again: exactly why was NORAD shut down the morning of 9/11/01?)

Another consideration with astrological Jupiter is that he expands and increases whatever he contacts or is involved with–positively or negatively–and the added challenge of transit Pluto in Capricorn opposing 9/11’s Jupiter (and the two planets combined = big bankers, influential politicians, those who mount large-scale projects, and/or powerful religious leaders)–and US natal Jupiter (5Can56)–denotes limiting conditions, commercial and/or trading difficulties, and a potential for travel interruptions occurring off and on.

Also, Jupiter loves freedom as does Uranus and right now, transit Uranus @12Ari07 Rx (a critical-crisis degree) squares (90 degr) 9/11’s Jupiter denoting rebelliousness against restrictions (one signature of Gitmo and other prison breaks, plus, political cat-herding in Washington), dissatisfaction with political views in or of society, and a distinct potential for erratic or misplaced generosity.

Add in the fact that transit Saturn now in early Scorpio (sign of Big Business, debt, surveillance, the occult, death and regeneration, transformation, betrayal, etc) will soon enter the 2nd house of Earning Ability and the National Treasury in the 9/11/01 horoscope–and eventually visit 9/11’s Pluto (@12Sag38, America’s natal Ascendant in the ‘Sibly’ chart) which happens to conjoin 9/11’s 3rd cusp of Communications and Short Trips. This transit denotes a time of power issues and the loss of control over situations which were just too big to begin with.

To me, Saturn-to-Pluto conjunct US natal ASC sounds rather like the gargantuan and rights-abusing US surveillance system with its frilly underpants recently yanked down a mite by former NSA employee Edward Snowden…that, and our corrupt-to-the-core financial system of Too Big To Fail banks, plus, the highly rigged casino we call, Wall Street.

Now isn’t wearing saggy pants now illegal in some states?

Oh, and one more thing: 9/11’s 2nd cusp mentioned above has an appropriate Sabian Symbol when its degree (11Sco28) is rounded up to ’12Sco”: “An Embassy Ball”.

It’s Drawing Day on Saturday June 4, 2011

Three Art questions for you: Do you love to draw? Or did you used to love to draw when you were a kid? Have you engaged in drawing or doodling in the last little while?

Then you may wish to check out details about this Saturday’s Drawing Day! The ultimate goal of the project is to gather one million drawings from across the globe with entries posted in an online art gallery.There are several options for how to download your art offering (flickr, Red Bubble, create a YouTube video, and more) with a chance to be published in the Drawing Day book.

So if drawing is your thing, check it out or simply mosey by the Drawing Day website on Saturday and afterwards to see what art has been uploaded!

Plus, on a heavier note, here’s another question: Is the Strauss-Kahn Arrest Linked to Missing US Gold? with notes on today’s Solar Eclipse in Gemini conjoining US natal Uranus 8Gem55 and transiting Midas, that lover and hoarder of gold.

My drawing shown above, A Fairy’s Secret Valley, is the sort of ‘mystical’ pencil illustration (suitable for children) that is often published at Secret Moon Art and I hope you’ll flit by when you can…

Cosmic Art: the weird, the masked, the slideshow

Here is one of the weird sort of drawings I perpetrate from time to time: Cosmic Persona in Flux which was originally published at Cosmic Persona Designs (for 17+ only due to mild adult content.)

This one has a masked theme (for we all wear them) and is drawn with Prismacolor oil along with Derwent watercolour pencils on black paper…pour vous!

Now I use the watercolour pencils dry only but naturally they work well with water if you prefer. And do try them on black paper if you haven’t for I think you’ll like the brilliant colors, depth, and special effects which may be achieved.

~:~

For 24/7 art browsing you’re cordially invited to mosey by my Zazzle Art Shop.

Or how about taking a moment to view my ‘Cosmic Flowers Art’ Slideshow? You’ll discover that one of my more popular drawings on this blog, ‘Flowers of India’, is included in the floral display!

Moon Art for a Monday

Moonlight Path

Moonlight Path

Monday is the Moon’s day and since the Aquarian Solar Eclipse is fresh (occurring here at 2:55 am est), I thought a shout-out to Luna on her day was a good way to begin the week.

Drawing: Prismacolor oil, Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils (dry) on black paper; perpetrated by Jude Cowell, natal Moon in Pisces, Sun in Capricorn.

So now, for all of us who were born with Sun in Capricorn-Moon in Pisces:

Sun Cap-Moon Pisces (Earth-Water): scientist and poet; a pragmatic dreamer; an imaginative organizer; tough and tender; dependable but private; both practical and dreamy.

Self-reflection makes this combo serious and solemn at times but allows deep insight into others’ plights. A natural humanitarian with a penchant for mystery, this blend makes for one who isn’t always sure if she’s the cat’s meow or something the cat dragged in.

Quietly bringing order out of chaos is a talent (which astrologers recognize as a helpful trait!), and there’s a capacity to give form and substance to imagination.

Weaknesses include: fear of the unknown, a pathetic tendency to carry other people’s burdens, and a tendency to lose confidence through negative thought patterns.

The Sun Cap-Moon Pisces blend is shared natally by:

Benjamin Franklin (an astrologer, as you know), Paul Cezanne (one of my top 3 favorite Impressionists), Elvis Presley (well, as a kid I liked his music), J. Edgar Hoover (ee-euww!), Sandy Koufax (saw him play on TV watching baseball with my Dad), Ava Gardner (now there was a beauty), Keith Thomas (author of ‘Religion and the Decline of Magic’), and J. R. R. Tolkein (read ‘The Hobbit’ when it was brand new but couldn’t get through all of The Trilogy, it wore me out!  Sorry.)

Let’s hear a peep from Ben – here is one of the more practical bits of advice from Ben Franklin – it’s one of my favorites of his quotes:

‘Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that’s the stuff life is made of.’

And Astrology is what brings the element of Time to the table!

Images for Integration:

‘A wine collector uncorks a rare vintage to celebrate a success…A child builds a sandcastle of reinforced concrete…Bilbo in Tolkein’s ‘Lord of the Rings’…’Bathers in a Landscape’ by Cezanne…Elvis Presley’s ‘Blue Suede Shoes’. (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

The ‘sandcastle/reinforced concrete’ reminds me of his help in founding America, ya know? Ideal-idea of freedom into manifestation  and all that, with Uranus, planet of revolution and rebellion,  discovered in 1781 – between the American Revolution and the French Revolution.

So it was Uranus’ creative spark (Plato’s Ideal) poured into Saturnian form, circa 1776, and voila! a New Atlantis: America.

Well, thanks for taking a meander with me down a Moonlight Path on the  Moon’s Day. Hope you enjoyed yourself!

Chiffonery Art collaged with Mystical Art

moonbeam-lake-uncovered

Rather an oddish piece. A bit of a ‘Boudoir Blossom’ lady, a dancer type, but different.

It’s a copy of a drawing from the Summer Olympics 1996, Atlanta, GA., ‘Moonbeam Lake’ photographed small and collaged into a newer figure study for my 17+er art gallery at:

http://cosmicpersonadesigns.blogspot.com

Two drawings were accepted in a city exhibition, one of which was ‘Moonbeam Lake’ which was originally from a children’s book dummy I was putting together at the time, ‘Silvery Tree Path.’

So-named ‘shroom-homes figured into the tale as elfish abodes with fairies playing about unseen…hence my primary imprint 1995 to the present and beyond: Unscene World.

The lighted look in the drawing-as-painting that’s ‘hanging’ on the screen is achieved by embossing with an aluminum pencil – Prismacolor’s ‘Silver.’

And here’s a link to a partial view of the Great Lichen Forest where the Roscoe Woodhouse story ‘Silvery Tree Path’ plays out…

Update Saturday 2:53 pm est: a fresh image is uploaded of a new drawing, ‘ShroomHome on Silvery Tree Path’ which continues the elfin theme…

http://secretmoonart.blogspot.com/2008/12/shroomhome-on-silvery-tree-path.html

The drawing isn’t quite complete, but perhaps you may enjoy it all the same!

Plus, another note: the Adult Content Warning has been temporarily lifted for a day or so in order for crawling to take place…seems the Art Blog is about to be kicked off URLTrends due to inaccessibility.

Cosmic Persona Designs’  Content Warning for the 17+ers among us will be replaced very soon. The blog, is, however, only my Artwork – figure studies, designs really – no artsy photos on the premises, and none sought.

It’s Art for Art’s Sake with this apt hint:  CPD displays only a little Chiffonery Art…frothy and fun.
