I knew it was You, Bush

Remember in March 2004 the ‘thuggish’ strong-arming that occurred at the hospital bedside of then-Attorney-General John Ashcroft to get him to authorize the government’s illegal activities?

It was ordered by – gasp! – George Bush during his War Of Terror regime.

Bush’s last words: warning or threat?

The War on Terror is a Hoax

By Paul Craig Roberts

According to US government propaganda, terrorist cells are spread throughout America, making it necessary for the government to spy on all Americans and violate most other constitutional protections. Among President Bush’s last words as he left office was the warning that America would soon be struck again by Muslim terrorists.

Why ‘9/11’ rhetoric for Mumbai attacks?

Yes, we saw it coming, didn’t we? And the ‘like 9/11’ rhetoric was soon in the air immediately after Nov 26’s attacks on Mumbai, India.

Dec 3’s ‘The Nation’ has an insightful article on why it’s inappropriate to lump the two terroist attacks into one ball of ‘War on Terror’ justifications with attendant propaganda:


And I suppose the cry of ‘false flag op’ must be on some minds…such as my own, perhaps?

Well, no matter the truth – the perps, the sponsors, the complicit, the objective – it’s all meant to further rile up the world and create more chaos – compliments of the social tinkerers who should be the ones in the dock. If not them, then it’s people who fight them with extremist strategies – I just can’t agree with their use of violent tactics, if that’s the case.

But neither do I agree with one-world-government types who would crush their own grandmothers under heel if it made them a buck or won them a throne they could control or cast down.

So someone please inform me: is the ‘world court’ at the Hague a joke? Or is the ‘war on terror’ a joke they’re in on?

If all the terror-promoting is leading up to ultimate control by the United Nations and its standing army, then certain conspiracy theorists were right all along. But by then, the pipers will all have been paid, the die will be cast, and national sovereignty will be a thing of the past.

Double Flyby plus Venus-Jupiter – and add the Crescent Moon

Space Weather News for Nov 28, 2008

DOUBLE FLYBY ALERT: Space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International Space Station this morning, and the two spacecraft are now orbiting Earth in tandem. Endeavour is scheduled to land in Florida on Sunday, Nov. 30. Between now and then, many sky watchers (especially those in Europe) will be able to see the shuttle and the space station cutting across the night sky together–a rare and beautiful “double flyby.” Get predictions for your hometown from the Simple Satellite Tracker: http://spaceweather.com/flybys .

SPECTACULAR CONJUNCTION: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look southwest. You’ll see something very pretty: Venus and Jupiter beaming together through the twilight. The two closely-spaced planets are about to be joined by the slender crescent Moon for a spectacular three-way conjunction that arguably ranks as the best sky show of 2008. Check http://spaceweather.com for sky maps, photos–and be sure to keep an eye on the sky in the evenings ahead.

Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?  Yet astrologically speaking, Dec 1’s triple conjunction of Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon 22Cap35 is more complex than a moonlight stroll in a starry meadow.

I’m using ’10:43 am’ because Moon and Venus meet at 22:35, with Jupiter 22:18…Moon has translated her glowing moonbeams from Jupiter to Lady Venus. An enchanted sprinkle? A secret meeting perhaps?

Could be all of the above and then some.

At the White House (locating the chart here specifically and as a stand-in for America) the three often-benefic bodies have just arisen on Dec 1, 2008 at 10:43 am est, thus lying hidden within the Behind-the-Scenes 12th house.

Pluto 00Cap10, a World Point, is ahead of them in the celestial order of this day although all grace the Saturn-ruled sign of the mer-goat, Capricorn. The mystical side of Cap is seldom mentioned here but has been noted elsewhere a time or two.

Sun 9Sag50 (conj Antares, ‘obsessed with success’ – one of the Royal Stars of Persia), Mars 11Sag03 (degree of Pluto-Chiron’s Great Conjunction Dec 30, 1999), and Mercury 13Sag09 (conj US natal ASC, ‘Sibly’) are in 10th house of ‘The World’ (Tarot card 21); Career; Public Status. Midheaven’s degree is 22Sco00, and 00AQ13 rises, the degree of US Inaugural Sun on Jan 20 in DC…and for 2009, Inaugural Mercury Rx, too.

’22’ is the number of Mastery and with Mc 22Sco:00 sextile all three – Moon, Venus, and Jupiter in Cap – a YOD pattern is possible for (anyone having) a planet at 21 – 23 Gemini in the apex position.

Glaringly, this includes America’s natal Mars (energy; action principle; direction), so a few midpoint pictures are formed which we may wish to consider; Reinhold Ebertin shall direct us…

Moon-Mc =  n Mars: devotion to a cause, body and soul; actions based on feelings; industriousness; spirit of endeavor; a man desiring to possess a woman’t soul ( I say, get yer own);

Venus-Mc = n Mars: strong desires; sex;

Jupiter-Mc = n Mars: clarity of purpose or objectives; successful cooperation; engagement; a desire to create one’s own good fortune; abundant creative powers.

Inauguration 2009’s 00AQ+ Sun and Mercury Rx are rising thus linking the triple conjunction to president-elect Barack Obama, with Sun as rep for ‘the leader.’ (And I still don’t know quite what to think of Mercury Rx on Jan 20, 2009!) Plus, 00AQ+ brings Obama’snatal Jupiter to the Ascendant with his late-Capricorn Saturn, planet of authority and control, rising just after Venus-Moon-Jupiter.

Ascendant 00AQ13 has not one, not two, but three planetary combos rising…All involve progressive if quirky rebel Uranus, erratic and electric planet of genius and originality…and you know the Saturn-Uranus opposition is still within orb, here across the 2/8 axis of Resources, and possibly signifying the ‘haves vs have-nots’ stand-off we’re under, but also traditionally linked with Israel, Palestine, and the region of the Middle East); both planets are connected to the scientific, futuristic sign of Aquarius…

Sun-Uranus = Asc: sudden experiences; easily excited persons; new associations.

Mercury-Uranus = Asc: organising ability; prudence or deliberation; circumspection; a sudden contact of thoughts with others (cell phones?); the application of practical principles in the creation of the environment;

Mars-Uranus = Asc: an upsetting event; accident; violence; an excitable  person inclined to commit violence; arrest.

Next is a rather squirrelly picture involving North Node, a joining point showing future direction or ‘the path’ or ‘destiny’…

Neptune-Asc = North Node: suffering from falsehood, fraud or malice through one’s association with disharmonious people (like Wall Street and Fed bandits? or pocket-lining politicians? more “bailouts” of the rich and dishonest?); an accessory to a malicious scheme (ahhh..now that echoes like the buzzing of wasps and hornets infesting Mumbai and elsewhere as they make their explosive point with cruelty – or: the world bank and investor crowd of thieves and crooks who have the money-lender scales tipped their way and Fort Knox wiped clean.)

We know the sociopaths and psychos are on the loose like wolves lying in wait (and proud of it!); meanwhile, a slightly different arm of the syndicate runs the political side of things – but they tend to split into factions – esp the D-Party whose edges are fraying as I type. Doltbrains. Egoism reigns!

Other midptpics with testy, testosterone-pumped Mars, the god of war who likes to blow things up while taking as many down with him as he goes… 

Pluto-Mc = Mars: great striving for the attainment of power; career crisis; the urge to dominate others; the misfortune to be forced into an uncongenial profession or occupation (‘occupation’ – of a country? profession – terroist? creative accountant who knows too much?);

Sun-Mercury = Mars: the will to fight life’s battles; thinking critically; agitated thoughts; excitement, upset, argument, or quarrel.

Midheaven has three planetary combos upon it so we know these duos of combined energies have a place to manifest…the Angular 10th house…

Moon-Saturn = Mc: sense of duty; self-control; feeling lonely or deserted; being ill or sad (don’t know about you but when I’m ill, I’m sad. And sad feelings can make people ill.)

Venus-Saturn = Mc: irritability; inhibitions; reserve; jealousy; separations in relationships; seeking solitude.

Jupiter-Saturn = Mc: fluctuating success; changes; losses; the philosopher; desiring solitude; love of seclusion; loneliness.

Obviously, Venus-Jupiter = Moon: charm, good nature, cordiality, and affection; the bride or mother.

So. As usual with our Lesson-Book-of-the-Universe planet, both good and bad are on our menus.

Last but not least, an Unaspected Pluto is tied into the energies of the chart bwo a midpoint picture (as it relates to Moon-Venus-Jupiter conj over Washington – or everywhere really), so we see the most expanded ego point of the chart (Sun-Jup) pointing to the god of Hades, lord of the Underworld…so distant and unaffected…

Sun-Jupiter = Pluto: acquiring wealth (at whose expense?); expectation of good fortune; pursuing happiness and fortune.

As you know, lone reader, I tend to use Pluto as a rep for the richest of the world’s denizens, those power elitist string-pullers who may be referred to only in hushed tones as…the secret hand. Distant royal cousins? Brethren in a super-secret alliance to ensnare the world’s masses? Both?

Thing is, they too will take as many down with them as they go. Innocents included.

That’s what really keeps me in a snit of miffdom about the propagandisticlly-named ‘WOT’…that, and the fact that the common good of humankind is no more than a joke to them, suitable for after-dinner banter and brandy…

Sunday Night Update: tomorrow, Monday, Dec 1, 2008, the president-elect is to announce his cabinet picks including, one presumes, Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. The scheduled time I’m finding for his announcement is ’10:40 am ET’…three minutes into the Moon-Venus-Jupiter conjunction! Wha-a-aaa?

Bush-Cheney spoil for war with Russia: does Hitler smile?

Seventy-five years between them and the propaganda machine keeps spinning on…

“The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to
revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve
and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It
regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the
family as the basis of national life.” 

-Adolph Hitler, My New World Order, Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin  February 1, 1933

“I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can’t explain it, but I
sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen… I know
it won’t be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.”

-George W. Bush commenting to Texas evangelist James Robinson in the run-up to his
presidential campaign

“And I just — I cannot speak strongly enough about how we must collectively
get after those who kill in the name of — in the name of some kind of false

George W. Bush during a press appearance with King Abdullah of Jordan, Aug 1, 2002


Belated note to George: that was Falwell whispering in your hairy ear, not God. And in the other ear? Whichever rabbi you were favoring at the time…even so I like Bush’s advice from Aug 1, 2002, for if the collective would ‘get after’ the brigands behind the curtain, he’d be one of the ones put away where he couldn’t harm more innocents.

Swords and torches!

The GOP is making as much hay as possible saying that Barack Obama has a messiah complex, and it’s true that a very large ego is required to run for president. Yet in the Battle of Messiah Complexes, I think Bush and his quixotic, oddly directed ‘God-inspired’ compulsion to bomb the Holy Land to smithereens, would win hooves down.

That Bush-Cheney and friends have made billions from their oily adventures is a clue to the coup by the military industrial complex’s…er…messiah complex.

You know, a good bit has been made of what’s called ‘Hitler’s trigger degree’ and rightly so for his natal *Sun in the ’30Aries’ – ‘1Tau’ degree area often seems to turn up in violent horoscopes especially at times when seizing power is on someone’s agenda.

And ‘1 Tau’ is the Illumination Point (opposite/unconscious/shadow degree) of the natal Sun in the Oct 24, 1993 New World Order horoscope.

And I know you noticed from whence Hitler’s above quote spewed…in the works for decades!

Now here’s the symbol for ’30Ari’ from Adriano Carelli’s interesting book ‘The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac’ published in 1982 (third printing, AFA):

“A virago leading by the bridle a horse entirely covered with iron plate.”

Iron Cross? Iron Curtain? Trojan Horse? 9/11? Hello?


Read Paul Craig Roberts’ article, ‘War With Russia Is On the Agenda’ here:


More of same with John McCain. Trying to save yo mama with Barack Obama.

The world domination path is set and no detours will be allowed – not in the 60s and not at this late date for they’ve worked so hard and pilfered so much to give up their iron fist now.


* Adolph Hitler Apr 20, 1889 (NS) 6:30 pm Braunau am Inn, Austria; Moon ‘7Cap’, also from Carelli:

‘The Sphinx’: (a degree) “-worthy of Daedalus, and drives to their utmost defects of puzzling and selfish secretiveness.

{Charubel gives ‘the labyrinth’ as a symbol for this degree…the whole of the sign Capricorn is in fact a labyrinth; will the native be its maker or its victim? Or, like Daedalus, both at the same time? A Sphinx: is the riddle in the native’s self, or waylaying him at a bend in the road he is to travel? And will the riddle be of a material, intellectual, or spiritual nature?

Will there be political or feminine intrigue?

The Sphinx would rather not be asked questions. She is to ask them herself.

(Should the native be a man) and he is involved in political intrigue, there is sure to be a woman somewhere. The native may fly high or land in jail, may be exiled or die a tragic death. It is the end that counts.

But the man is not by all means to be an Oedipus, nor is the woman, whether a winner or loser, to be a sphinx. The riddle may belong to the world of science, and the sphinx watch the secrets of the physical world or the threshold of the world beyond.”

(Carelli adds his usual that the whole of the horoscope gives background and meaning.)

Now you may know that i related this, in part, to the attacks of 9/11/01, for after a mrning of studying charts I took a break at 1:00 pm edt and asked a Tarot question: who is responsible?

A: Ask the Sphinx.

But the Sphinx doesn’t like to be asked questions! The ‘sphinx’ is often used to describe someone who is mum.


Mmm-hmm…bombs planted within towers? How high the degree to melt steel? NORAD put on pretend stand-by games by Dick Cheney? 

Many such questions have resulted from that sad day in 2001 and the riddle, like Capricorn’s labyrinth, rankles still from actions taken and not taken under the Geminian duplicities of a void-of-course Moon.

Biden’s MBNA ties and US banking legislation

Did Joe Biden’s ties to credit card company MBNA affect his role in banking legislation that draconically re-wrote bankruptcy law AGAINST consumers? Yes.

MBNA has since been bought by Bank of America but was spawned in Delaware, Biden’s home state.

Will it affect his ability to help Obama become president? Depends on how many other culprits come under fire for similar corruption. Biden’s staffers are defending him with ‘compromises must be made’ which could justify most anything you like.

Credit cards are Delaware!

And Biden sold his house to an MNBA executive and has received about $240, 000 in contributions through the years, as NPR is now reporting. Well, is Biden really an outsider to Washington’s ways? Apparently not esp when it comes to big money – and natally he does have a happy Jupiter in busine$$-oriented Cancer.

And since the objective during political campaigning is to wound your opponent/s without getting caught, tit-for-tat revelations should surely be in preparation to stem the damage.

We’ll see how this ‘gotcha’ plays out for Obama-Biden…esp if this week’s out-of-bounds Moon signifies plans you have no intention of fulfilling anyway…such as resting the helm from neocon hawks and Zionists of the GOP. It’s not as if Dem strategists hadn’t known Biden’s financial ties and their implications Before he was chosen as VP running mate -are they trying to lose like Kerry? 

Oh for an honest man? They’re all pocket-liners in Washington…US natal Jupiter = “6Cancer”: “Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests.” Clear to me, how about you?

I still believe all candidates should disclose to the hoodwinked American people just how much moola they’ve gained from the ‘war on terror’ and the war in Iraq (ha! right?) Iraqi children are suffering so horribly and it makes me Very Angry when children suffer.

With an ‘out of bounds of the earthly plane’ Moon affecting events, plans, moods, and other Moon-related factors this week – and with security concerns included in the scenario – safety needs are again indicated (see two previous posts below.)

But plans made under this Moon won’t tend to pan out, so the saving grace for this Dem Convention’s OOBs Moon is that their plans were, of course, made Prior to this week; still a Moon OOBs gives a scattered, vague, and/or warm-and-fuzzy feeling to the proceedings.

Pass the mac’n’cheese, no pork please!

So the lack of realism and wasted effort occurring under an OOBs Moon may show through misjudgments of some kind with mistakes being made. Good! Perhaps my expressed fears about safety and sabotage this week are what will come to nothing.
