Update Jan 20, 2009: TV is reporting that the actual time scheduled for the Oath-taking is 11:56 am est. Bush’s term officially ends at noon.
This changes Moon to 29Sco43 (from 29:45) but the main changes it makes are with house cusps:
11:56 am ASC 12Tau40 (from noon’s 14Tau03: “15Tau”…”A Man in a Rakish Silk Hat.”)
“13Tau”…”A Man Handling Baggage”; “14Tau”…”Shellfish Groping and Children Playing.”
Midheaven, the Goal Point of the chart and Inauguration, changes one degree from “27Cap”…”A Mountain Pilgrimage” to 11:56 am’s Mc 25Cap13….”26Cap”…”A Water Sprite.”
All other cusps are one to two degrees earlier than on the noon chart, and with IC (Foundation Point) changed to 25Can13 the US natal Mercury is made closer to the Ic.
Here’s Dane Rudhyar:
US natal Mercury Rx “25Can”…”A Will-full Man Is Overshadowed by a Descent of Superior Power”…Keynote: The response of spiritual forces to the integration of personality through positive will-full endeavors”…ENDOWMENT…
We are dealing here with a man who uses his will and positive imagination in facing life’s problems. To him comes a pentecostal descent of power. He receives the “mantle of power,” the grace (‘baraka’ in Sufi philosophy) or the Providential assisstance which can make him a true leader in his culture.

January 20, 2009; noon EST; Capitol Building, Washington, DC USA–Oath of Office for US Presidency:
Pluto/Chiron = Midheaven.
You see, with Astrology to spell things out, we don’t have to be fooled–control bwo plutocracy IS the Goal. This is not, nor has it ever been, a cakewalk. It’s a world coup.
*Scorpio Moon (the People or populace; the public; women; publicity) is at the “A Halloween jester” degree which Dane Rudhyar gives as:
“Children in Halloween Costumes Indulge in Various Pranks”..
Keynote: The periodic outlets society furnishes within traditional limits to still-immature energies.
…we see individuals beginning to be involved in the collective life of a large city….Wherever this symbol is found, the need foir such outlets is shown to exist. But the rules of the game have to be followed.”
Rudhyar goes on to say that “in any feeling experience of collective living and interhuman relationships one has to deal with unregenerated and centrifugal elements. These should be carefully managed. They can also be controlled by the power of the mind–the Sagittarian way. This symbol points to an imaginative RELIEF FROM TENSION. (‘An Astrological Mandala’ by Dane Rudhyar.)
Vote rigging? Young voters out in force? Female voters making the difference? It’ll take a landslide large enough not be kept hidden. Legal snafus are possible as well, and we’ve certainly seen them before. And we’ve got the hyper-worldly, easy to disrupt D and R Conventions to get through first!
And yet for this particular Inauguration, Moon is in an obsessive-compulsive Quindecile aspect (165 degr) with the Ascendant (ASC) which is the office of president itself. (Nowadays the ASC is often at 14Tau+ as you see in the chart–up from 13Tau+ initially. This was changed during FDR’s “watch” when Mar 4, 1933 next became Jan 20, 1937 for taking the Oath of Office.)
Moon QD ASC = emotional dependency upon others; driven to have one’s feelings and emotions seen and acknowledged by others; unpredictable and moody; emotional convictions are prominent.
Pass the sans lotion Puffs, I’m tearing up!
Sounds to me as if the electorate, aka the unwashed masses, will be having fits of the rolling vapors on Jan 20, especially with Barack Obama’s natal Jupiter conjoined with Sun and Mercury Rx for the Inaugural ceremony. (Well, the Public ceremony anyway. Wouldn’t this reluctant astrologer love to know the date, time, and place of the Secret oath?)
You’ll remember that Obama’s Jupiter Return occurs Jan 9, 2009 so we’ll see how his Jupiter Reward Cycle benefits him. (Every 12 years give or take a month or so–we all have them.)
Still McCain’s natal Moon/Pluto opposition is in the mix for Jan 20, 2009 with his natal Moon in ambitious Capricorn at Mc (with US n Pluto) and his natal Pluto in Cancer at its base. Moon/Pluto links such as McCain’s give an ability to sway the masses through emotional appeals.
So as you see in the chart, Jupiter is at 3AQ+ AND I may tell you that Jupiter, the rich man/Republican/professor/confessor, is conjunct a personal name asteroid…and funny, but it’s name is ‘Bill.’
Richardson? Clinton? Kristol? Hello? Who’s there? We shall have to see and when we know, we’ll know, won’t we?
*The 2009 Inaugural Moon conjuncts the natal PLUTO of Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian sect of the Illuminati, a group which directs more in the world than is admitted or usually known…and is possibly responsible for the esoteric design of America’s Great Seal–you see these things on the US dollar bill with its eye of Horus at top of the 13 stepped pyramid, and in the other Scorpionic, wiccan symbols on our “greenbacks” which the much-touted FDR traded for America’s gold and defrauded the American people out of $3 billion while doing it…”New Deal”…is it part of the New World Order agenda, m’peops? Seems the “new New Deal” is.
In 1929, the mysterious “they” created the crash, then “fixed” it just as they’ve done with the subprime housing market crash 2007/08–and who do we see profiting once again? The power hierarchy which includes, of course, the world banking system.
As “The Halloween Jester” returns on Jan 20, 2009, we know that Moon/Pluto contacts give an “exaggerated new plans; zeal and intensity of self-application” flavor, and in addition, here’s an interesting tidbit to be noted…
Jan 20, 2009 ’happens’ to be the upcoming Jupiter Return of…adept and Satan worhipper, Adam Weishaupt.
