The ‘Abuse of Power’ Asteroid in Astrology

The name Atlantis can bring multiple images to mind – of mythical islands and modern day spacecraft among them – and for astrologers an archetype appears carrying ‘the abuse or misuse of power’ type of energy, and its position shows the place in a natal chart where the person feels ‘doomed’.

Since I follow US Politics as closely as I can stand without having to fumigate, it seldom escapes my notice when a topic or scandal begins to ‘trend’ in the 24/7 news cycle. They’re hard to miss, aren’t they? Especially since media types pound certain ‘reports’ over and over into our brains as long as we’re ‘connected’ through some tech device or other. Meanwhile, we skip along like piped children, similar to how Terrence Mckenna predicted we would -enthralled by a fascinating device that glows!

Well, if you’re curious or have missed it thus far, here’s my favorite 4 minutes of Terrence Mckenna predicting future conditions on Earth (1998 — 2012). He pretty much covers many of the outcomes we deal with today (or neglect dealing with, as the case may be). I guess with spot-on predictions ‘uncanny’ is the word yet the brief video clip contains concepts you may find worth considering if you dare!

Mckenna’s remarks encompass conditions which make possible the scandals created by the Roy Moore and Donald Trump allegations of abuse of power and harassment against young women and girls (and perhaps against others too). Theirs is bounder and cad behavior, as you know. Compulsive-obsessive, mommy issues, narcissism, hubris, master-servant complexes, misogyny, pedophilia, objectification of women, whatevs. And of course, the label ‘sociopath’ for such anti-social, over-the-line behavior is never far behind.

So naturally I had to discover the Zodiacal positions of asteroid and archetype Atlantis in the two men’s natal horoscopes. Then I wrote briefly about them so if you’re interested you’ll find my Atlantis post at Stars Over Washington along with the venerable, erudite Plato making a tiny little cameo appearance!

Feb 25, 2013 Full Moon in Virgo = job losses?

Today’s post at Stars Over Washington gives details and a view of the horoscope of February 25, 2013’s Full Moon in Virgo, sign of jobs, work, service, and health, with the chart set for the Capitol Building, Washington DC.

And as you know, various services in the US are due for interruption and more job losses are predicted because of ‘sequestration’ cuts which are likely to be implemented beginning March 1st unless Congress lifts itself up and shows more wisdom in financial matters than they’ve demonstrated so far. Such are the Machiavellian tactics of Washington politicians egged on by their wealthy billionaire backers against We the People as they plan austerity for us, more riches bwo tax breaks for them!

On Monday February 25th, congress members skulk back to the Capitol Building after their week-long vacation under the rays of a Virgo Full Moon which perfects on Monday at 3:26 pm est and colors this congressional session.

Implications of the Full Moon’s Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo Water-Earth blend of energies (mud-stuck yet practical, swamped by duties they should have already met) may be interesting to note: ‘analysis and synthesis, nervous and fretful, large-minded but good with details, devoted servants with refined tastes’. This blend denotes a confrontation (Full Moon = culmination, and awareness of relationship dynamics) between intuition and reason with Pisces unable to stand much reality, and Virgo all for making clear-eyed assessments and finding practical solutions (though what Congress is actually ‘devoted’ to seems suspect.)

A caution for this session of Congress which begins with a Virgo Full Moon, is to avoid perfectionism and an overly critical attitude toward others along with a tendency to allow emotions and rationality to clash–for it’s difficult to distinguish between them.

In Sun Sign-Moon Sign, the Harveys give interesting Images for Integration to describe the Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo pair of energies: “Small events bring enormous consequences…Faith and reason shake hands.”

Perhaps the best advice for everyone–very much including our political miscreants and radicals about to bring our financial matters to a halt–comes from famed psychologist Roberto Assagioli who was born under the influences of the Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo blend and observed that:

“Without forgiveness life is governed by…an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.”

Hmm…wise advice for Washington DC, isn’t it?

In US political campaign donors hedge bets and a Sag Lunar Eclipse 6-15-11

Well, maybe this tidbit which mainly describes the 2008 presidential campaign cycle isn’t something just uncovered by this week’s revealing Lunar Eclipse in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius but elite group of donors dole out campaign money among various candidates reminds me of how it’s done on a larger scale when for centuries global banking houses have supplied both sides of wars and revolutions which they themselves fomented from within their secret society chambers.

Perhaps one reason for them to pony up for ‘both sides’ is to establish a win-win situation for themselves by retaining influence over whichever candidate wins a nomination or an election.

Bets are hedged, allegiances are pledged, and they are not meant to protect or defend the US Constitution.

You’ll note that I snagged the article link above from the OpenSecrets site for it seemed appropriate as the Lunar Eclipse in the sign of The Seeker nears.

June 15, 2011 Lunar Eclipse @ 24Sag23.

Ever read, Why Socialism? by Albert Einstein?

If you missed Why Socialism? by Albert Einstein, the May 1949 essay may have something important to say to us in 2011 especially given the horrendous state of our national institutions compliments of Wall Street and the Big Banks, national, and to some extent, local, politicians, and any other tentacle (or branch) of the global crime syndicate network that got the world into the financial and societal messes it’s in.

~:~

Astro-Note: several planetary factors and actors represent levels of class warfare/disenfranchisement/primal violence tactics used by Plutocracy in an Astrology map, but it’s the duo of Pluto with Chiron that says it all in one neat package. The last time they met in Great Conjunction was on Dec 30, 1999 @ 11Sag23; prior to that, another important meeting took place on May 21, 1884 @ 29Tau31. There are many things to be said about both hook-ups as they relate to societal and financial conditions, then and now. I hope eventually to have a chance to discuss the Pluto/Chiron topic with you more fully.

As for Socialism, a discussion on the Saturn (government; authority; management) and Neptune (secret; hidden; the masses; the media; propaganda; oil, gas, and water) combination of planetary energies would be of interest as well for together they may signify Socialism and/or Communism.

Barack’s war and peace contradictions

Barack Obama and the Iraq War
 
By Shamus Cooke
 
If he is eventually elected President, the contradiction between Obama’s public anti-war face and his real pro-war beliefs will produce incredible shock and disappointment in millions of people.

Well, we know they’ll say anything (artfully rationalized) to get themselves elected.
~~
And as stated here and elsewhere, no one gets to be seriously considered as a US presidential candidate unless and until they’ve been vetted by the powers-that-be…the financiers and speculators who are rolling in war profiteering dough and have more plans for chaos on the way.
~~
Yes, 2009’s “winner” is very important to the elite. This race is about who can shove the swill down our throats the quicker and with the least amount of trouble.
~~
But that’s American Politics, one of the fakest and most corrupt endeavors anyone could aspire to command and spew propaganda for.
~~:~~
Well, bless my Aunt Granny Fanny, I can’t wait to see who tops the charts come November, or whenever the ‘results’ are tallied (Mercury will be Rx–do-overs and recounts again? Florida and Michigan problems?)
~~:~~
Whichever political thespian it turns out to be, we’ll know exactly who’s tops with the elite powermongers of the world…the one they think will best do their bidding. And the race goes to…

Dost Thou Harken to Hillary?

Well, if you’re one of the two people who read this blog or Stars Over Washington, you already know what a ‘populist’ I am with America the only nag in any race as far as I’m concerned. No apologies for it either.

So when Hillary Clinton won Kentucky yesterday, and Barack Obama took Oregon, all as promised (or planned), I felt a lingering melancholy because I cannot seem to feel elated that a double-you-oh-em-ay-en may obtain the keys to White House at last. Paternalistic power morphs into maternalistic power. Big whoop, if my following misgivings for this country ensue.

You see, there’s this haunting lack of trust which Hillary engenders in me…call it Vince Fosteritis, if you wish, or call it a glop of concerns about her as cited in The Nation’s article of Nov 5, 2007, ‘Hillary’s Mystery Money Men’ which you will find online here:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1913243/posts

And no, it isn’t just Hillary and Bill, it’s Rs, Ds, and in between.

Terry McAuliffe was a linchpin where Hillary was concerned, yet his seeming neutralization doesn’t solve her Bush-Harken, Alan Quasha, Hassan Nemazee, oil-and-insider-trading connections. Nor does it bode well for the American people because many of the politicians thought to be above this corruption are down in the vat with the rest and in process of leaving the American people simmering in a thick stew.

Perhaps it was always too much to ask that Washington not stink like the swamp it was built upon. Why build it upon a swamp? Location, location, location–the coordinates were desired by America’s Masonic founders, swamp be dam*ed. As you may already know, the spot aligned astrologically with London and Cairo. (Yes–Cairo!!)

Now our so-called Manifest Destiny is decreeing the end of America as we know it, economic collapse and all with the dollar in process of going buh-bye along with American borders, our Bill of Rights, the US Constitution, and our legislative and judicial systems.

By their dismantling of America, these social tinkerers, these self-imagined ‘world servers’ of the one-world government intend to give lie to the liberal and peaceful principles which have been at the base of America’s very founding.

Biblically speaking, I must think of Revelation’s beast with the lamblike horns which ‘spake as a dragon’ and exercised ‘all the power of the first beast’…which foretells quite plainly the development of the spirit of intolerance and persecution. This beast will enforce some observance which will pay homage to the papacy, the first beast.

Such action will be directly contrary to the principles of the US government as they were set up, to the genius of its free institutions, and to the direct and solemn avowals embedded within the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution.

All this even though our founders sought to guard against the use of secular power on the part of the church which results in the inevitable consequence of intolerance and persecution!

It is only by flagrant violation of these safeguards to our nation’s liberty that religious observance can be enforced by civil authority, yet I believe that this is the wider path upon which we have been set by globalists who masquerade as “American politicians.”

They have their world banking and royal bloodline enablers and cousins, of course, and the now-beginning economic collapse of US currency and sovereignty is on the agenda for their world revolution.

Since President Bush41 had called for the New World Order, did you imagine that Bush43 would NOT be a continuation of their world domination plans? Have you seen how much Shrub has accomplished these long years with the attacks of 9/11/01 as the pretext?

Bill Clinton’s presidency was part of the process as will be the next White House shill–Hillary’s touted “inevitability’ is evidence of this continued dynasty. Yet they always have their bases covered for McCain or Obama will dance to the NWO tune at our expense–especially once the initial honeymoon is over.

And part of the purposeful hubbub and confusion roiling the 2000 election bwo enabler Jeb’s Florida involvement…(he really delivered, in spite of what the film “Recount” may imply with its attractive thespianism)…was to further disenfranchise our voting system and the American electorate’s faith in its honesty. Then SCOTUS showed its hoofprints in order to seal the coup.

Yes, the symbol of “lamblike” horns of this beast is purposefully gentle and harmless like a little woolly lamb, isn’t it? For in order for the US to form an ‘image to the beast’ religious power must so control the civil government that state authority must be employed to accomplish the church’s ends…and probably perpetrated in the name of “security.”

Protestant churches have followed in Rome’s hoofprints by forming alliances with worldly powers and have shown us in recent years that an individual’s conscience may be thought to be legislatable…a fallacy if there ever were one. Once you tell a man what his conscience SHOULD tell him is right, you overstep a line and seek to negate and make mockery of what is obviously his personal conscience by definition.

So when Protestant churches seek more of their “world councils” of unity, beware.

And when the leading churches of the United States unite upon points of doctrine which they hold in common and influence government to enforce their decrees, you’ll know that Protestant America is forming an image of the Roman hierarchy–with infliction of civil penalties soon to follow. Yesiree bobtail, the melding of church with state is Always a bad idea for the common good.

Scripture says that in the last days men shall be lovers of their own selves…do you think we’re there yet?

Well, my lamentable habit of composing-at-keyboard has led to these sparse and browner pastures for sheep such as the American electorate to starve themselves upon. And it’s taking Democrats AND Republicans to implement the crimes and abominations mentioned above.

And while no politicians is exempt from my contempt on these and other issues, yet I will vote in November, for they can’t (as of yet) take that from me, even if my vote disappears down the rabbithole of Karl Rove’s political imagineering.

My slogan for today: US Politics–No Real Candidate for The People Need Apply.

And though it pains me to type it, if you’ve previously missed the above-linked article, please read it before November, for you’ll find the name of Barack Obama listed as well…and as I’ve stated previously on my astro-political blog, Stars Over Washington, NO ONE can be a US presidential candidate without being vetted from “on high.”

Thus the United States of America is no longer a qualified entrant. If so, then my nag in the race has already lost.

 

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: I ran across an interesting treatment today on the mysteries of the Oklahoma City Bombing which you may find interesting especially if you think it’s wiser not to take governmental tales at face value. Note that US natal Uranus 8Gem55 is rising with its revolution/rebellion tendencies and sudden disruptions.

Original post begind 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.

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.

Feb 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 is conj asteroid, Diana, whose keywords are: 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 conj 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 obscene is that?

You see that Uranus and Neptune are a bit beyond their Great Conjunction of 1993 (the NWO pair) with Uranus conj US Inaugural Sun (Jan 20.) So rebellious Uranus meets US leadership (Sun.)

Needless to say, Neptune will go on to conj 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.

Uranus to 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 propagandistic Mercury/Pluto midpoint at midheaven (Mc–the Goal) we have 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 prime part in the Bush-Cheney coronation.

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 conj Morya, with her obvious link to death. Chiron is conj Fixed Star, Denebola, keywords: ‘to go against society.’

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.

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?

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 esp 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?
