An astro-peek at Glenn Beck

What have you been doing online this morning?

I’ve posted some details on the natal chart of broadcaster Glenn Beck (Feb 10, 1964) and am now cross pollinating two of my blogs with this link to the article for you.

Click and you’ll also find a video from the Alex Jones Show concerning Glenn Beck and Beck’s Sept 22 mention of the ‘global elite’…very interesting! Do you think it’s possible for the truth to sometimes escape accidentally on purpose?

Germany to make final WWI reparation payment

Well, it took quite a few decades but on October 3, 2010, Germany will make its final reparation payment for losing World War I, Der Spiegel reports. War costs do tend to linger in more ways than one, don’t they?

And this surely will result in quite a sense of relief in Berlin!

Actually, I did not know they were still paying off the debt, did you?

Wikileaks’ Schmitt leaving

As you may have heard, Dan Schmitt, who joined the upstart activist whistleblower organization of our time in 2007, says he’s leaving WikiLeaks.

Sometimes there is little option to do otherwise.

Harvest Moon and a southwestern fireball!

SOUTHWESTERN FIREBALL RIVALS THE HARVEST MOON

Last night, sky watchers in the southwestern United States witnessed a brilliant fireball. It was almost as bright as the full Harvest Moon and caused a loud sonic boom over parts of New Mexico.

A movie of the event is highlighted on today’s edition of Space Weather News.

Google charges for blog domain 15 days early

Yesterday one of those freak robot emails arrived saying that on such-and-such a date, Google would automatically charge my account with the annual fee for my Stars Over Washington blog. Well, okay then. That time already? Where does the time go?

But as it turns out, I happen to have a copy of last year’s payment in my records and the date Google selected to dun me in October is 15 days earlier than last year’s fee. Am I being scammed by big rich Google? Could they possibly bo so hard up for cash that they pull this – and perhaps scoot up the date so it steals from the last annual fee?

Is paying for a year of hosting really a year of hosting minus two weeks? Will the fee come earlier next year?

Well, is there another explanation for Google’s behavior? I’ve written blogs with them for over 5 years and their action seems thievish and sneaky even if it isn’t (by some quirky twist of their rules – like slamming a price increase on bloggers without having to call itself what it amounts to.)

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this kind of practice.

I mean, it’s not as if you can actually contact a human being at Google and have a nice discussion. Right? So Do Not Look Behind the Curtain. For there might be all manner of October deformities hiding in the shadows.

Christine O’Donnell won’t show face on Face the Nation

Daily Kos has noted FTN host Bob Sheiffer’s tweet disclosing that Christine O’Donnell has backed out of her scheduled Face the Nation interview this Sunday. Quelle disappointment!

Perhaps O’Donnell wishes to avoid questions concerning some interesting tidbits now revealed (actually, remembered) concerning her past witchcraft dalliances which aren’t ready to be faced on the public airwaves during a campaign.

No surprise: US census reveals poverty up

Census Reveals 45 Million Americans Living in Poverty

By Daily Mail

One in seven Americans is living below the poverty line, the US census figures reflect the worst decline in worst decline in living standards for more than half a century.

~:~

It took decades of greed by the wealthy class to skew the gap between rich and poor even more in their favor, but I have to say that it took only eight years of Bush-Cheney policies to tip our nation into third-world status – lest the GOP forget that Financial Collapse 2008 occurred on Bush’s watch.

Now Republicans want to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans! For the GOP, it seems that sometimes America’s astronomical deficit matters (ex: extending unemployment benefits when there are few jobs to be found, and funding other programs for lesser endowed citizens), but when it comes to an extra bonus for millionaires and billionaires, their deficit concerns evaporate into that thin and precious air they breathe.

Reminds me of a famous quote by
Henry Brooks Adams
, great-great-grandson of John Adams (yet Henry is known for his anti-semitism):

“Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds.”

In more ways than one as both Ds and Rs use divide-and-conquer tactics against the citizenry in order to keep their cushy Capitol Hill jobs and powerful positions. And though I mistrust the Tea Party’s being funded by the corporate Koch brothers, I exult in how Tea Partisans have managed to ruffle GOP feathers!

US launches new ops against Taliban 9.15.10

For the first time, US troops have launched major operations in the region that spawned the Taliban in the Zahri district of southern Aghanistan.

Well, unfortunately for horoscope viewing, my software program never willingly gives me locations in Afghanistan where the ops began at 4:00 am local time, September 15, 2010. But the launching occurred at ‘about 7:30 pm edt’ at the Pentagon last evening (Sept 14) and a peek at the chart shows 28Pis47 rising with Uranus 28Pis53 Rx.

Uranus on ASC indicates an ability to cope with the unexpected yet this Uranus is retrograde. Perhaps the unexpected with be delayed or not definitively dealt with. That’s nothing new in the US theater of war in the Middle East, of course, plus chart-ruler Jupiter the General is at critical or crisis degree: 29Pis15 – but also retrograde, not the most strengthening picture for Jupiter the General’s war efforts.

At Midheaven (the goal point of a chart) is 29Sag20 with Sag also being ruled by Jupiter Rx. ’30Sag’ = “The Pope Blessing the Faithful” and I suppose he does though it’s of no personal interest to me. What this could mean to the US war machine is beyond the scope of this brief post.

Interestingly, Sun 22Vir03 gives a Sabian Symbol for ’24Virgo’ = “A Lion Tamer Rushes Fearlessly into the Circus Arena” which is very descriptive of our Sun worshiping culture of the West rushing in to the wilderness of the Zahri territory, described as “the heart of darkness.”

(Leo, sign of the lion, rules the heart and spine, as you know.)

Then there’s the Moon @ 18Sag56; the symbol of a Crescent Moon signifies the East. “19Sag” = “Pelicans, Disturbed by People, Move Their Habitats” and my thoughts are that the Taliban will simply move their encampments in order to fight another day and are already vamoosed: the Moon in the chart was out-of-bounds when the ‘major operations’ were launched.

Wonder if the US military knows where all the tunnels are?

(Sabian Symbols from Solar Fire software.)

Gandhi’s simple question and the Global Awakening

“What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?”

- Mohandas Gandhi

Indeed.

And fyi, I’ve just posted the first 3 videos in the series Waking Up to Reality by Max Igan with a link to the last 4 videos. You may think you want to skip this cosmic presentation by Mr. Igan, but you really don’t because you too are an integral part of The Matrix, a cell of the cosmic consciousness.

And I know you know that an Astrology chart represents a cell, a map of DNA at your very fingertips…right? So if it’s your natal chart, you have a picture of your DNA in black and white. Too bad genetic scientists don’t understand this (or perhaps some of them do but they’re not telling.)

As Above, So Below…

Yes, it is literally time for the Global Awakening!

Wise words from JFK and General MacArthur

It’s a surprise to me to discover that the first quote was uttered by General Douglas MacAruthur. The second quote from JFK is familiar to most people and I hereby cop to having the same sentiments:

“It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificually induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear.” – General Douglas MacArthur, Speech, May 15, 1951

“…if by a liberal they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people – their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, their civil liberties…if that is what they mean by a “liberal” then I am proud to be a liberal. “ – John F.Kennedy

So am I.

Yet they’re still whipping things into a state of war hysteria and practicing ‘an incessant propaganda of fear’ to this day! And sadly for the economy and future of America, their tactics work.

Will the American people ever wake up to and resist how Washington works against our best interests?
