Posts Tagged ‘History’
As I flitted around Twitter just now I ran across a blog that is new to me called American’s Journey.
One recent post stands out for its analysis of the circuitous subject of international bankers and their Nazi enablings which you may wish to check out especially if you have history interests or simply want our current crop of warmongering thieves to melt into the Hades from which they came.
Dots are connected between WWI, WWII, and the current mess they’ve engineered for the planet using their bogus, cruel anti-society ‘destroy in order to save’ mentality.
History is made in America!
And if the birth time for Barack Obama is correct at 7:24 pm AHST (Aug 4, 1961, Honolulu, HI) then the midpoint of the fortunate combo of Jupiter-Uranus is pointing to Obama’s natal ASC…
Jupiter-Uranus = ASC: optimism; personal self-confidence; success; knowing the best will happen; fortunate twists in the way things transpire. (Tyl.)
So at 11:00 pm est – an Hour of Mercury – when I heard ABC News announce that Barack Obama is to be 44th president of the United States, I saw that his natal Sun 12Leo33 was rising at that moment, with natal Moon 3Gem21 in 10th house of Career and Public Status.
You’ll find more details, an image of the announcement’s chart with Obama’s natal chart here:
And one more thing which has been ‘going on’ astrologically during the campaign…the transiting Uranus-Neptune midpoint 5Pis13 is conjunct Barack Obama’s natal Chiron 5Pis19. That he is called to act as shaman for the collective seems a given. That absolutely everyone appreciates how he fulfills this role is another – thornier – matter.
Here’s a link to the text of Barack Obama’s speech in Chicago in case you were hiding under a rock:
The Page concerning Monday’s Full Moon is spreading out and now includes the Moon’s symbol as given byAdriano Carelli, the midpoint picture created by thisFull Moon with Pluto, and a link to Stars Over Washington which has info on 17th century utopian, Thomas Campanella, who penned ‘The City of the Sun’ while imprisoned by the Spanish Inquisition (which Monty Python insisted nobody expects.)
The Sun’s degree on Sep 15 (’23Virgo’) is same as Campanella’s natal Sun which makes the Harvest Full Moon something of a Solar Return for Tomasso Campanella.
See sidebar, ‘Full Moon 22Pis54 9.15.08.’
UPDATE Aug 12: listening now to NPR’s MarketPlace and they’re talking about Russia’s motives concerning Georgia – that Putin wants to control other resources besides oil and gas – he also wants control of GRAINS. See notes on Ceres and Demeter at the end of this post!
~original post starts here~ ~
Like most bellybutton-gazing Americans I’m way behind on the history of the region now ignited.
So far, the best background info I’ve found is Russia Today’s August 11 article, ‘Georgia vs South Ossetia: roots of a 100-year conflict’ here:
NPR is reporting at noon that Russia has opened a second front. Saakashvili is saying that ethnic cleansing is going on, Wake Up, World. McCain is urging Bush to dispatch Condi Rice to the region ~like Bush couldn’t think of it himself in this macabre political farce in which innocent people pay with their lives.~ And the DOW is up, btw.)
Bush is flying back to the US now from what was “likely his last trip to Asia while in office.” That Bush would think to open his gob about anyone else using force to impose ‘peace’ has to be a clue that this is political theater, dahlink – hiding the real deal made behind the scenes.
Perhaps it’s more instructive to listen to what they DO and not to what they say.
So last evening (just for curiosity’s sake) I consulted my set of The Century Cyclopedia, 1898 edition, and looked up ‘Abkhazia’ in the Book of Proper Names finding this entry from 110 years years ago:
“Abkhasia: A region, not an administrative division, on the southern slope of the Caucasus, having an area of about 3,000 miles. It was permanently subjugated by Russia in 1864. Population: about 80,000.”
No entry for Ossetia, South or North in 1898.
The entry for ‘Georgia’ says that the area is “almost identical to the ancient Iberia” and that it was conquered by Alexander the Great (who may be understandably rolling over in his tomb with the current goings-on) but that Georgia “soon after his death became an independent kingdom. It was at its height about 1200, and had a flourishing literature. It was sub-divided in the beginning of the fifteenth century, and was annexed by Russia in *1801. The Georgians are a very handsome race, of the purest Caucasian type.”
Well, that’s a time capsule from 1898 for you, antique racial comments and all!
*1801: asteroid Ceres was discovered Jan 1, 1801 – notably the date that Ireland was united with Great Britain thus creating a useable natal chart for the UK. Ceres, Roman goddess of the grain and Earth Mother, is now considered in Mundane Astrology to be a significator of national security, ecology, food resources, and of course, as The Mother archetype, of nurturing and safety.
Ceres’ Greek counterpart is Demeter whose origin is Indo-European. Demeter has been associated more with the Earth Mother, and Ceres primarily with grain. The ‘Cerealia’ on April 19 was the chief festival of Ceres. (‘New Insights into Astrology,’ Nona Gwynn Press.)
Yes, there are some time-warpish links between the chart of Cornwallis’ Surrender, set for the hour specifically chosen by Freemason, Gen George Washington, and the chart for Jan 20, 2009 12:00 pm est Capitol Building, Washington, DC.
A new president of the USA will be installed at that time. (Not elected, mind you…selected.)
Well, I finally got around to writing a Page on a comparison between 1781 and 2009 (with chart’s image, all ascribbled in notes…sorry, but it’s as if you’re looking over my shoulder; plus, being an artist, I naturally scribble all about)–and you will find said post/chart in the Sidebar, if you wish.
But do not read the Page unless you first find yourself flumoxed by the question:
Who is the lady of the 29th degree?
I’m right there with ya…but saddled with the Saturn/North Node midpoint which will be weighing upon the Inaugural Moon of Jan 20, 2009…and at the “A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire” degree. You’ll see on the chart’s image.
*Saturn/NN = Moon: standing alone in life; widows, orphans; inhibitions; loneliness; appealing to senior persons; qualifying for responsibility.
A new president who appeals to the senior among us?
But stir it in with this formal introduction for you if you’re an American reading these words:
America, meet We-the-People on Inauguration Day 2009…buffeted by a long process, but most recently delivered to you by the GOP, their Dem enablers, and all neocon fiends whatever their true stripe.
They got theirs–you weren’t plannin’ to Eat that cob o’corn, were you?
* mdpt pics from Tyl and from Ebertin; as with all midpoint pics, things may end up as All, None, or Some Combination, just as with the rest of life.
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power”: Abraham Lincoln
Yeah, that’s one of the things powerful Pluto is up to as he plods through authoritative Capricorn now…testing men’s characters.
Yet for some folk (and I think of posturing politicians in particular) the test ends before it begins, doesn’t it? No point in testing the well after you’ve seen that the water’s all dried up.
How I applauded (while ROFLMBO) those Ethics Classes on the Hill we were promised. Wonder how that brilliant plan is going? Any graduates yet? Maybe one of them should be president.
Perhaps We-the-People can institute a program for newbies as they head for Capitol Hill…first title that pops into my noggin is: Remedial Ethics…? Seems they all specialize in advanced Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests 101, 102, 103…etc.
These seminars will be discontinued due to the Cash Cow drying up along with the well.
On Gather dot com, Altair Ego has posted a list of things that have happened through the years on March 20:

“He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, science for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable an ignorable war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.” Albert Einstein
He had a right to his personal opinion, of course, and these days it seems that politicians have many of us believing that perhaps there can be extenuating circumstances which make war “necessary.”
Unfortunately for America and for our courageous armed service members who trusted the US government not to lead them astray, the NECESSARINESS of the Bush-Cheney Iraq invasion was an elaborate charade–which confirms it for anyone with a brain in his/her head…that it wasn’t.
Are you prepared for Ben’s birthday this Thursday? Got the fireworks and the cake yet?
You can get more ready at Stars Over Washington where I’ve published something of an article on Franklin’s natal chart and on his Solar Return 2008 which has links to a certain 2008 presidential campaign of a certain candidate…guess which one?
Ben Franklin left this mortal coil on April 17, 1790–in the midst of his Uranus Return which occurs (for all who should live so long) around the age of 84.
Due to retrogradation, there are three dates for Franklin’s Uranus Return to natal degree, 6Leo52 Rx, conjunct US natal North Node…the Uranus/NN pair = political reformist groups:
1. Aug 24, 1789
2. Feb 11, 1790
(died April 17, 1790)
3. June 9, 1790.
With Uranus’ discovery on March 13, 1781, and Freemason Franklin’s astronomical (and what we now call ‘astrological’) interests, he was probably aware of this quirky, disruptive planet during his lifetime. Uranus is considered to have close connections with the natal chart of America…that independent and freedom-loving Uranus!
You know–like Americans used to be.
