Uranus/Neptune’s Great Conjunction 1993

Only a few years late have I discovered an intriguing article by Edmond H. Wollman concerning the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune in 1993, the original version of which was published in the Spring Yearbook 1993 of Dell Horoscope Magazine.

Due to retrogradation, there were three conjunctions of these transpersonal planets and Mr. Wollman’s article includes images of the horoscopes for all three of their conjunctions. You’ll find the 3rd chart’s image linked in my article on the NWO because their third conjunction (Oct 24, 1993) is the one I use as the natal chart of the New World Order with its ’18Cap’ degree’s Sabian Symbol:

‘ “The Union Jack” = SUPERVISION…

positive expression: the self’s ever-widening spread of interest in its insatiable desire to leave some permanent imprint of itself on everything it touches;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: smug or strong-armed paternalism.’

This Symbol’s emphasis “is on the social or political side,” says Dr. Jones. Dane Rudhyar’s version of the Sabian Symbols gives ’18Cap’ as ‘POLITICAL POWER, its value and its dangers.’

‘The Union Jack’ points to British naval warships and at the US-UK alliance in war and in other dalliances. Just add a ‘d’ to alliance and you get, dalliance.

‘Leaving an imprint on everything it touches’ seems to be the intent these days of Politics and the agenda of powerful players within the US political system, and you know what they say: just because you have no interest in Politics doesn’t mean Politics isn’t interested in You.

Proud to be an American

Soul-searching after Senator Edward Kennedy’s Passing…

One thing you may as well know: I had friends who served, and friends who dodged the draft, during the Vietnam War, an abomination on par with the Bush-Cheney ‘Cakewalk’ invasion of Iraq 2003 to __?__.

My belief is that President Obama’s expansion of US troops into Afghanistan, Pakistan (and wherever else the zionists take him) is a mistaken course. For one thing, true success doesn’t come when a vengeful spirit is indulged. Such ‘success’ is only temporary for it is not based on permanent values upon which the Universe hinges (Love is the Foundation.)

Senator Kennedy’s passing last evening has me thinking about how I was once prouder to be an American than I’ve been able to be in the last several years of ‘rule’ by the zealous emotional robots who bedevil us to this day and beyond.

And if I never get to feel proud of America again, so be it, I’ll just have to deal.

But do one favor for me please? If you haven’t yet, read this one article: Thugs of Fortune, posted by Jeff Huber.

Thank You.


The Kennedy Family has set up a site where you may honor the senator and share your memories, if you wish.

Wedding Day Astrology of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Having just published a Wedding Day Astrology report on Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s marriage, I thought you might wish to check out their nuptials as seen through an astrological lens.

In the sidebar of alphabetized Pages simply click ‘Wedding Day Astrology: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’ and there you’ll be – not ‘at’ their 2003 wedding exactly, but as close as anyone should fairly come to this entertaining couple! Or simply click this link.

Also I’ve posted a Coldplay video from their tour, performed on the evening of August 16, 2009…view it here.

Astrology of Reagan’s 1981 Inauguration

Have you ever looked at the Astrology chart of Ronald Reagan’s 1st Inauguration in January 1981?

Click link to read my notes and view the chart, if you wish.

Naturally, the Sun on Jan 20, 1981 is where US Inaugural Suns are positioned still; 00AQ34 in 1981.

But you may be interested in the Air-Fire Sun AQ-Moon Leo blend of that joyful day as Hollywood took over the White House…Moon 5Leo25 in 4th house, North Node 10Leo51 which indicates a US Nodal Return soon after Reagan’s Inauguration.

Nodal Returns are times when new associations are formed, a Jupiterian influence. And Moon (‘the people’) in Leo shows a happy lot of folks with great hopes for America with Reagan’s fatherly hand on the helm of state…Reagan was an idealistic Jupiterian par excellence, and as you know, the Republican Party is signified in Mundane Astrology by Jupiter (Dems = Saturn.)

That Mr. Reagan’s hand was also in the till can be demonstrated by an article link therein which leads to my “I knew it was You, Reagan’ post from June 30 which concerns Reagan signing the Garn-St Germain Act of 1982, the Deregulation Portal from which the American people – and the world – are now grievously suffering.

Financially speaking, the pertinent planetary configurations in Reagan’s natal chart – Moon/NN opposite Jupiter/SN are impossible to miss in the 1981 Inauguration chart, so check it out.

Traits of the 1981 presidential Sun AQ-Moon Leo combo: gentleness outside, strength within; fearless defender of principle; democrat and despot; exudes a strong sense of personal ideals to the world; a proud, regal demeanor; gregariousness; enthusiasm for new ideas; a social reformer.

This blend tends to glamorize other people so that their true colors are not seen; arrogant and stubborn; gets carried away by romance and adventure.

‘Image for Integration’:

“A modern actress takes a bow, then leads the audience to a political demonstration.”

Sounds like Reagan’s career path!

Natally this blend is shared by Frederick the Great who asserted quite ‘illuminatingly’ that, “My people and I have come to an agreement…they are to say what they please, and I am to do what I please.”

(‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Now this is 1981’s Inaugural blend, not Reagan’s natal combo! His birth time has been disputed and rectified through the years, yet it’s safe to mention his natal Sun AQ-Moon Taurus, because the Moon remained in Taurus for the 24-hour period (assuming his birth date is correct – Feb 6, 1911, ‘4:16 am’ cst; Tampico, IL.)

Here are a few details on Reagan’s natal blend…

Air-Earth Sun AQ-Moon Taurus: eccentric entrepreneur; security vs independence; friendly humanitarian; peace-loving but strong-willed; idealistic; spectator of all time and existence; logical; tenacious.

‘Images for Integration’:

“The resident caretaker of a ‘New Age’ community sips his Beaujolais as he systematically does the year’s accounts…A country girl seeks a conventional life with an unconventional young man in the big city.”

Lots of comments to make on that one (‘New Age’ = ‘NWO’?, etc), but I’ll semi-resist the urge for now unless you want to discuss the Astrology of Ronald Reagan sometime – let me know on one of my blogs or the other.

Yet I will add quotes from two people who share the AQ-Tau blend natally…

“A hungry man is not a free man.”
Adlai E. Stevenson

“Only by transcending the everyday, by seeing human life in larger terms, can the individual escape the slow strangulation of ‘permanent errors’.”
E. G. Price

And that’s what a national leader must do: see human life in larger terms, whether 4 years or 8!

Plus, he did like to ponder and reflect, they say.

New Moon in Leo 8.20.09

Whenever a New Moon is in playful, adoration-loving Leo, there promises to be a happy occasion on someone’s menu.

Lots of movie viewings and rentals will be perpetrated the weekend of August 22, I suspect, for Leo is the sign of The Showman.

MGM’s old insignia, the roaring Lion, tells of the film industry’s long-held love of dramatic Leo.

And one can hardly skip the ‘Images for Integration’ for this Fire-Fire blend for they are quite intriguing…

‘A child in an Edenic paradise builds a beautiful sandcastle in the sunshine with all the creations of nature in joyous attendance…In full pageantry, the new king is crowned before his kingdom.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Hmm…do you think August 20’s Leo New Moon (a new cycle of activity) may bring a coronation onto the global platter of entertainment? Or perhaps another sort of showy ceremony.

And Leo does so love entertainment, adoration, approval, and praise. But let us remember another archetypal tale associated with the royal sign of Leo the Lion – the Prodigal Son/Daughter.

Is there are any prodigals who should return home, the days after August 20’s New Moon are great times to do so for you’ll be following a natural and universal rhythm! It’s the pride of the Lion which must be tamed and a clearer view of reality entertained as one’s blessings are once again fully appreciated and forgiveness is asked and received.

Now, if you don’t mind a more political view of this powerful New Moon with its horoscope set for Washington, DC, try Stars Over Washington where I’ve recently posted the August 20 New Moon chart with brief details.

Discussion of this Leo lunation is encouraged, especially since at ’28Leo’ the New Moon is in an ‘astrological degree’ and conjuncts one of the Royal Stars of Persia, Regulus, ‘in the tip of the Leo’s tail’ as Bernadette Brady said to me in the Fixed Star Report she recorded concerning my day of birth!

The one thing to avoid with Regulus on the road to gaining the success a Royal Star portends?

Revenge. ‘Success if revenge is avoided.’

Oh dear. We all seem to fail that test quite regularly, don’t we?
