The smallest Full Moon in recent memory and for years to come made it’s appearance on the penumbral eclipse. In the Texas sky I could recognize Jupiter as a tiny twin just at 11 o’clock. Did you know that 11/11 was the day that Yassir Arafat died? Yes, that Yassir Arafat who was just exhumed in Ramallah on the eve of the eclipse. Did you know that Arafat was related to the prophet Mohammed? In essence, just before the eclipse, Arafat and the specter of Mohammed himself were resurrected. This utterly symbolic event was taking place on the same day that had two other resonant, and synchronistic events in history related to 11/27.
On 11/27/511, King Clovis, the man whose seed would fuel one of Europe’s most famous bloodlines, the Merovingians, through his grandson, Merovech, died. Keep this in mind, because it is through Clovis that in many ways, religion and culture would take root in Europe, but not for the beatific inspiration that Clovis claimed. Clovis was a pagan, and a sharp one. He had conquered nearly all of what we call France and he knew that if he wanted even greater property, influence and wealth, he would have to convert to Christianity, especially if he wanted to marry Clotilde, the Burgundian princess. So he did and in so doing he changed the course of history and destiny of Europe.
Clovis became a Roman-Catholic, which recognized the Father/Son/Holy Ghost as part of one, unified expression of God.
In contrast to the Roman-Catholics, The Goths and Visigoths practiced a different form of Christianity altogether; “Arian Christianity,” Arian Christianity separated Christ out of the trinity as a distinct being and sub-ordinate to the father, There was no Holy Ghost. This was a threat to the religious concordance e and hierarchy of the pope’s rising influence and power. While not quite in the same heretical ballpark of Manichaeism, the church did not think highly of the alternate cosmology, which could displace not only it’s military and economic power, but threaten the ecclesiastical structure of the church itself, removing the pope from the throne of spiritual king and representative of God on Earth. The Goths and Visigoths were also threats to Clovis himself, and he knew that if he had to gigot them (which he did) that he would need Rome’s blessing and gold.
Obviously, Rome would not recognize the Germanic version of faith. So they were more than ready to support Clovis with his conquests to conquer the tribal heretics. This again, would be prove to be a major tipping point in the religious formation of Western Europe.
On the very same day, in the year of 1095, Pope Urban II declared the first crusade at the Council of Clermont. Think there might have been some underlying meaning as to the specific day of Arafat’s exhumation as the Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Gemini was rising?
Gemini is one of my favorite signs, because it resonates on so many different levels. it’s a key symbol in hermetic alchemy and as such is favored by the magicians of Enochian magic, creators and sustainers of the demi-urges of this world and most of their mega-ritual spell binding. I’ve referenced this before. From JFK, to the Two Pauls, to GHW Bush, we see the thread of Gemini running through the tapestry of illusion and the constant trick of the mind, where reality becomes a sleight-of-hand experience. Massive events like the fall of “The Twin Towers” reinforce the illusion of separateness from the divine creator, while binding us to the god of this world.
When you observe the symbol of Gemini, it’s perfect for this task. It’s two as one, but not really one. The two are capped by Earth and Heaven. They are contained in a simulacra of the universe, a matrix if you will. Adam and Eve were symbolic of Gemini and every twin of every creation myth are as well. Abel and Cain, the progeny of Adam and Eve are the incarnations of light and dark and so the split of the world begins, and we become bound by the rules of a world that self-perpetuates them either by will or by proxy. We have become locked into the dualistic dream, which threatens to become a nightmare.
While we are spellbound by the symbolic illusions of this false-dualism and bound in some ways by it’s rules, a group of scientists in Switzerland are definitely playing by a different set of rules. if we can believe the press that comes out of CERN, again, on the heels of the eclipse, they discovered some novel particles that they hadn’t yet discover, something they named, “Gluon.” The name itself is kind of hilarious. It reminds me of a late night commercial for a product to mend broken fingernails. I guess that’s why they’re scientists and not poets. Anyway, slamming particles together at different angles produced a new substance, never before seen. The underlying message of course is that they have found the “glue” of creation, hence, “Gluon.”
Science is ruled by the air signs, especially Gemini and Aquarius. Madame Curie had Jupiter in Aquarius in her first house and it squared just about every planet in her chart. Think she was on a mission?
Gemini wouldn’t mind witnessing the destruction of the world, as long as it could take notes. When i think of this, I flash on Tyler Durden and Norton/Pitt in “Fight Club” in true Gemini fashion, planning for and witnessing the destruction of civilization through the obliteration of it’s financial records, through the collapse of a building storing them all. Hmmmmmm? Okay, back to CERN.
Have you ever looked at the symbols surrounding CERN? Most people know of this one. Yes, it’s the classic 666 symbol, with the Pisces Vesica. But how about this one? What do you notice about this symbol? it’s the actual layout of CERN. What do you see? It’s a “wheel within a wheel.” Now I have heard that this particular piece from Ezekiel refers to everything from a UFO (Van Dahniken) to the zodiacal wheel. Perhaps, like “Cloud-Atlas” we are operating in multiple levels of time and reality, each one influencing the other, or being influenced again and again to maintain the protocols of control in this domain.
So the question, is do they really know what the hell they are doing over at CERN? Doesn’t sound like they expected these “Gluons” to show up in the way that they did. Now if you’re an eternal optimist and invest your full faith and credit in the gods of science, you’ll believe that something good, perhaps even great can come out of all of this. But there’s that other mind-set that wonders if the next ritualized slamming of particles might not yield a different result and punch a black hole through this world and the wheel within a wheel shifts from Ezekiel to Isaiah, which is almost like Bible within the Bible and provides it’s own version of revelations, replete with 66 chapters. Thus, The Book Of Isaiah is noted as the canonical, wheel within a wheel. But I digress just a bit.
While we continued to feast upon the last fibers of roasted tryptophan, the high priests of science were busy messing around with time and space. However, what’s interesting, is that if the notion of God as omnipresent and omniscient deity is true, and that everything is an unfoldment of the divine plan and will, that even the pocket-protectors of CERN, cannot escape their destiny, even if they try to rustle the God particle and control the flow of events, history and the third dimension. That must piss them off just a bit, even if they have murdered God in some obscure and drunken ritual back in their college days.
Gemini, would find all of this highly amusing. Libra would try to understand why. Aquarius would turn it into a Google app and try to control humanity through a 5G network. Speaking of which . . . .
As many of you know, I have left the intersection of Atlantis and Mu for a plains existence. Here in Austin, they are touting a new app for your phone and it’s called, “Isis.” Gotta like that name. She’s been everywhere lately, from Madonna, to breast bearing Army mamas. Isis is fertility and abundance and now you can have her right in your phone and she can pay for everything. Everything! Isis is a digital wallet and it’s a joint venture created and promoted by Verizon, ATT&T and T-Mobile. Yep. Think that’s gonna fail? When do competitors pool effort and resources? When they have to. But Isis is more than a digital wallet, it will allow you to order your drinks at Starbucks ahead of time and breeze past the line, pick up your steaming hot goodness, magically swipe your phone, pay and float past the cash fumbling masses.
You’ll be able to shop and walk right out of the store without having to deal with those slow and nasty checkers. Just breeze in and out like you own the place.
Get the picture?
As we stare down at the fiscal cliff, there’s Isis down there at the bottom, smiling warmly, sending out the telepathic message; go ahead baby, jump, come to mama, mama will catch you, take you home and make things right. Come to mama. Come.
Speaking of mamas. . .
Most dirt-digging, alternative-researchers have come across the naughty photos on the net that have been attributed to Stanley Ann Dunham and her romps with noted sex freak, Frank Marshall Davis, aka “Uncle Frank” the man who some people insist is Obama’s true father. Well they are interesting, but I will let the reader decide for themselves as I will not render judgement unto the president’s mother. You can find them on the internets. However, I will look at her birth chart as today, the 333rd day of the year is her birthday. So what can we infer from her chart?
Well, based on her chart, the true identity and life force of Dunham are not the ones revealed as her official life story and narrative. We can see this clearly in the 12th HOUSE. Her Sun, Merc and Mars are all hidden just slightly behind he veil of the ascendant, though they are quite close, especially the Sun and Mercury. In traditional astrology, we would read them as being part of the first house, since they are within five degrees of the cusp and with almost any other house, I would be in agreement with this. However the 12th HOUSE is a different beast altogether. It’s oceanic and deep, it’s more than just the collective unconscious, it’s cosmic soup, the undifferentiated source of creation. Hell, it might even be the Gluon factory. So even though her Sun is near the ASC. the image reminds me of the Sun rising out of the ocean on the eastern horizon, partially submerged in it’s alchemical birth into day. It’s an illusion of course, but as symbol, we cannot see the Sun in it’s entirety and this would include Dunham herself. She is partially hidden by the curtain of the 12th. Mercury is there as well, even further back, obscured slightly by the Sun. So her voice and her ability to communicate is hidden. This actually fits with some descriptions of her and her connection with people like Tim Geithner’s dad, the World Bank, Indonesia, Lolo Soetero and the coup in Indonesia, which takes us to her 1st HOUSE, where we can see her Venus, plain as day in Sag. This is a total fit with her dalliances with men from other countries, cultures and even political stripes. With Venus there, she would come to identity herself through her relationship with them. That is where she would seek out her identity,
I’m fascinated by her Mars in Scorpio, hence the name, Ann Randy. Mars in Scorpio is perhaps the most sexual sign/aspect in the Zodiac. I have been around people that have Mars in Scorpio and they exude sex at a primal level that results in my estimation as a hyperactive pheromonal broadcast. People can sniff Mars in Scorpio at a distance. I was hanging with a friend of mine one night. He has Mars in Scorpio. We were bar-hopping in North North beach and right out of the blue, a random woman walked up to him and planted a kiss right on his lips. That my friend’s is Mars in Scorpio.
So there it is, hidden, hanging out in her 12th House, secretly horny, getting down behind the scenes. But it also has to do with power, power behead the veil. Squaring the Leo Moon in the 9th House. Leo. Hmmmm.
Now I am not a birthed, because there have been presidents born in this country who have been as traitorous as any foreign born president could be, so I think it would be irrelevant where Obama was born, unless you wanted to use it as a means to remove him form office, not just for violating the Articles Of The Constitution, but perjury. Now that said, if I wanted to make an astrological case that Obama was born elsewhere, it would be his mother’s chart, where the Leo Moon (child, in this case, her Leo, Sun) representing birth and children, is in the house of foreign lands and distant cultures, where by the way her TN is as well. It’s good to know that Stanley Ann Dunham worked that node.
Another fascinating aspect of her chart is that old friend, Gemini.
In her 6th/7th houses, She has Uranus and Saturn conjunct. So here we go again, the forces of duality churning and burning. Saturn in the 7th in Gemini is a consecration of sorts, since it is accidentally exalted in there. It generally means long-standing relationships, but is Gemini it struggles with commitment, especially yoked to uber-kinky Uranus in Gemini. Uranus and Saturn are strange bedfellows. One wants to explode in an election storm, the other wants to compress the atmosphere and condense the gravity of self. Making this even more difficult to manage is the opposition of these two planets, with the Sun/Merc/Venus on the ASC. It’s such a drastic opposition, that it could suggest a type of schizophrenia, resulting in a dual personality or even multiple selves. It will be interesting to see what comes up around Ann Dunham when Jupiter retro hits the mid-point between Saturn and Uranus at 6 degrees in January.
Jumping up to her 8th HOUSE, there’s Pluto and Jupiter, two giants, representing power, and expansion, again, hidden, behind the scenes are hanging out. Trining her stellium on the ASC, these are he real generators of her chart, driving her purpose from deep within the waters of the 8th HOUSE.
Lastly, we have Neptune in her 10th and while motivations can be inspired, like wanting to help the world and serve and be an agent of compassion, things can get a little wonky and the motivations can get diluted and deluded, thus subverting the original intent and getting trapped at times in a hall of mirrors.
So what have we concluded? Can we determine that Ann Dunham isn’t who she appeared to be? Does Mars in Scorpio in the 12th denote hanky panicky with communist sex poets? And if it all does, what does matter and mean?
THE FRACTAL DREAM OF DON MIGUEL RUIZ
Yesterday, on Navigating The Astrological Matrix, I had the great pleasure of interviewing don Miguel Ruiz, author of “The Four Agreements” which I consider one of the best spiritual works of our time. The interview happened quite suddenly. We cleared it on Tuesday night and it went live on Wednesday, just as Mercury was going direct. For me, personally the interview was astonishing on a number of levels. First off, he shared with us, first hand, details of his heart failure, his coma and his subsequent heart transplant. A true shamanic journey of life, death, re-birth and the resurrection with a new heart. He spoke of his experience in the void and the beauty of all creation from a multi-dimensional perspective and how life and truth are mutually exclusive entities, which reinforced his perspective that we are not our stories and that none of this exists. We explored the paradox of being an the nihilistic conclusion that one can arrive at and what to do. if you are not your story and life has no real meaning, then what? In true Gemini fashion, you’ll have to listen to the interview to find out and you can do that below. You can also find out more about don Miguel Ruiz’s upcoming event, “Awakening The Giant” at Teothiuacan from the 17th to the 21st of December, 12/21/12 at the Temple of The Sun and Moon with don Miguel, HERE. Now how cool would that be?
Here is what we know, just days after Barack Obama got re-elected, three, key cabinet members stepped down; Hilary Clinton (Scorpio), Tim Geithner (Leo) and now David Petraeus (Scorpio, more on him later) have announced they are stepping down or have already resigned, as in Petraeus’s case. The stock market took an enormous nose dive the day after the elections. Obama has come out and said that the rich will have to pay more. Who or what in Obama’s new world order qualifies as rich? If you make $200, 000 a year, are you rich? Lemme tell you, making $200,000 in most places in California does not make you rich, trust me. But taxation, on the already hammered middle is not the path out of debt. Its soft austerity. The only way that people can get out of debt is by producing capital and therein lies the problem. The US doesn’t make anything anymore. In fact, the US is competing with China on domestic projects like the extension of the Bay Bridge (and losing) and is allowing China economic zones inside the US to manufacture products in the same tax zone that US companies enjoy while bringing cheap goods over from China. Its being touted as a model for revitalization in areas like Idaho and Montana where there is little manufacturing happening, the only problem is that the Chinese will employ their own people and create their own distribution chain eventually. That’s the problem. Its not “rich” Americans or even the 1%. Those people will always prosper.
Its the fact that globalism has circled the globe and has now come home to roost. America is being transformed into something very different than anything we’ve known. What’s about to hit the USA will make the Great Society look like a neighborhood bake sale and here comes the predictive moment; its going to have everything to do with the economy. I took some heat from a reader and former subscriber that, “I shouldn’t be making predictions, because I’ve been mostly wrong and that I should watch what I say.” As an astrologer, its incumbent on me to read the stars and forecast trends. Its what we do, for better or worse. Those that are good are usually recognized and followed and those that don’t are left behind to yammer in the dark. And frankly, there are topics I don’t want to be right about. People give Clif High a lot of flack because he’s predicted doom more often than not and in some instances has been spectacularly wrong, especially as it relates to Israel smoking Iran (which could still happen BTW), but even those failures to accurately predict what’s coming serve a purpose.
We’re at a stage in our collective development, where we are rapidly gaining some insight into the nature of reality. There’s an emerging school of science that believes this world is a hologram. Phillip K. Dick not only believed it, but experienced it as well. McKenna’s hyperdimensional meetings with “machine elves” hints at a collective intelligence and workforce behind the hologram, keeping the illusion of the world intact. And if that’s the case, then perhaps when a prophecy or a prediction that seemed not only imminent but even obvious in some cases goes awry, something has fundamentally shifted in that potential outcome.
When Heisenberg stumbled upon the “Uncertainty Principle” where particles became waves and vice versa, simply by observing the event, he didn’t uncoil the secret to creating ones own reality, which many New Agers have glommed onto as their core belief, but he did reveal that what we call “reality” can be altered through observable means. So when someone like Clif or even myself goes out on a limb and is wrong, there might be something more at work. If enough people can observe a potential outcome, then based on Hesineberg’s model, that outcome can and will be altered.
When 911 hit, it caught most people by surprise because of its sudden and violent impact upon our psyches. In the wake of 911, the most egregious and devastating things to hit the US have been weather or environmental based; Joplin, Katrina, The Gulf, Floods, Sandy and even Fukushima, all of which have or will become cases of disaster capitalism of the highest order. You see, once we started looking for the next 911 it was not going to occur in a similar fashion. Planned disaster has taken on a natural look and feel, which of course, conveniently masquerades as biblical prophecy, which gets those end times juices flowing.
Not to take undo credit, but I predicted the wave of sex scandals months before they hit. I was right about that one. I was wrong about the presidential election. I underestimated a few key factors, like voter fraud, in favor of Obama. You see, I thought that Romney and the Neocons were going to hijack the vote, much like they did in 2000 and 2004. I think they did again, but this time, they’ve changed stripes.
I was sent a video about a number of executives and I mean an unusual number of executives all buying plane tickets for Denver, all at the same time, which is right around Thanksgiving. Freeman and I discussed that Denver (and Atlanta) will be the seat of the government of the USA. There’s the Denver airport. And guess what’s coming to a theater near you? The new version of “Red Dawn.” The first one, a true classic took place where? The Rockies and Denver. So if that’s the case and these guys have the “A Ticket” to their swank, subterranean condo, then what does that mean for the rest of us? Based on astrology, what can we predict?
Well, let’s go through the scenarios.
The first that comes to mind with Saturn in Scorpio is financial collapse. Scorpio is other peoples money. Taurus is your money. By that definition, Scorpio represents interest based lending. Its interesting to note that the Federal Reserve Act took place on 12/23/13, a Tuesday, when the Sun was at 0 degrees Capricorn, which of course is the most vital degree for banking in general and the Moon was in mutual reception in Scorpio.
In 2008, when the world faced the entire collapse of that system, Pluto had just moved into Capricorn at 0 degrees. Bankrupt, the fiat money-exchange had to recreate itself and it did, through continuing to leverage toxic debt (anti-capital) and hone become a collection agency (austerity). This resulted in TARP ACT, which was signed into affect by Bush on 10/3/2008. The Moon was in Scorpio.
So my first take is, is that the disaster that’s looming in the distance is financial. If you’re a banker with lots of assets, do you want to be hanging out at your posh pad while the huns storm your gates? I don’t think so. With Saturn in Scorpio, its time for a financial reckoning when it comes to the whole notion of money lending and the accrual of other peoples resources, lines of credit, etc. Its going to happen. There I said it. I hope I’m wrong. I hope it all blows over, Obama is seized by the Holy Spirit, has a vision of Padre Pio on his favorite Persian rug and immediately seeks tax cuts and incentives for the small business owners of the USA. I hope Padre Pio hands him a healthy, green branch of hemp and tells number 44 that this is the key to prosperity for all mankind. And I hope he tells him to go straight to The View and deliver the message. That’s how unattached I am.
But what else might occur?
Well, there’s massive solar flaring and corneal hole eruptions, resulting in outrageous Northern Lights. Is the Earth’s electromagnetic field about to change, as the Mayans and others prophesied? Is the holographic program about to make a major shift? If the Denver chatter is right, are the Archons planning yet another descent into safety, while escaping their own extinction? That’s another plausible scenario and if that’s the case, you’d better get well acquainted with the caves in your area. My sense is, is that we’ll get some clues leading up to the Full Moon. Keep your eye on 11/22/12 (9) when the Sun goes into Sag 0 degrees, leading up to the hot, Sun/Uranus trine and Full Moon on the 30th. The number 9 represents the end of a cycle. It also has a tail hook and we’re witnessing a full on scandalous meltdown with the aforementioned Petraeus, but things are getting deeper and murkier, oh yes they are.
NEPTUNE DIRECT • ECLIPSE • NEW MOON
While Petraeus’s career and legacy goes down in flames (supposedly) there’s a lot more going on–a lot.. Let’s start with Petraeus and Paula Broadwell. From an astrological perspective, there can be no denying that there is an attraction between these two people, Their births are separated by just days (Scorpios) and her Sun is conjunct his, which is conjunct his mid-heaven. So its fairly obvious that she would play a significant role in his life, but I’m not sure that either saw it get played out quite like this. Broadwell also has her natal Jupiter in Capricorn in his 12th House, conjunct his Chiron in Capricorn in the 12th. He would feel expansive at a soul level around Broadwell, in ways that would manifest in her “getting him.” But as Pluto crosses both her Jupiter and his Chiron, the real motivations and clandestine nature rise to the surface. Pluto don’t lie.
Broadwell got her degree in “International Security” at the University of Denver. Denver. Denver. Denver. Denver was originally known as “Auraria” a gold mining town on the Platte, River. While it essentially means, “golden place” it also represents dawn, or “the dawn of a new day.” Denver was incorporated on 11/22/1858. As some of you might know, 11/22 was the day JFK was killed. But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves here.
Broadwell studied in Danver but moved to Charlotte aka “The Research Triangle.” She first met Petraeus while she was at Harvard and he was a guest speaker. He gave her his card and that was it.
Now that would be your typical scandal; older man meets younger woman who is enthralled with him and his power. There is an Iching hexagram for this, its called; “Liaison” and it’s number is 22. But Broadwell is anything but a mere biographer. She has a high level security clearance and has worked with the FBI in counter terrorism. Its all starting to sound like an episode of “Homeland” isn’t it? And thus, the FBI descended upon her Charlotte home today and marched out with photos, documents and computer files.
Did you know that Scorpio rules clandestine affairs? But when looking at intelligence, we also have to have a discussion about Gemini as well, since Gemini is also connected to spycraft through the assignation of double identities, double agents and double crosses. What we need for our story is two, twins to enter the fray. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the Khawam sisters!
Though they should not be confused with the Kardashians, they share their semitic roots, hailing from Lebanon. You might know one of them a little better as Jill Kelley, the unpaid social liaison (that word again) down in Florida at the base Petraeus was stationed at. Paula Broadwell sent Jill Kelley a number of emails harassing her. Seems like the Kelleys and the Petraeuss were pretty tight. But David Petraeus wasn’t the only guy that Jill Kelley was close to. The FBI agent investigating her was pulled off the case because he was sending her pictures of his bare chest. Uh huh. But here’s where it gets really weird. The top guy in Afghanistan, General John Allen has just stepped down as well. Seems as though he has between 20-30,000 emails between him and Kelley, who has no just hired a very powerful, D.C. lawyer. Allen is a Sag; 12/15/53 and is going through his second Saturn Return with his Saturn at 6 Scorpio currently getting hit. Remember, Jill Kelley is a twin. Yes, indeed. Jupiter in Gemini retro strikes again. 20,000-30,000 emails. Wow. But, wait there’s more!
At least three other top commanders are catching massive heat and are being replaced or under some type of inquiry. General Jeffery Sinclair, one of the army’s top ranking generals is facing a court martial for alleged sex crimes against women. General Carter Ham, head of US Africa Commnad, at the center of Benghazi-gate is retiring. Commander Joseph E. Darlak, head of the USS Vandergrift was removed Friday, That’s five, major players, most of whom have some connection to Benghazi, all going down. Its rumored that Petraeus could spend up to one year in an army prison for having an affair (against army rules). What are we really witnessing here?
Neptune, the planet of illusion and delusion, mysticism and drugs, magicians and martyrs has just gone direct. Are we seeing the floodgates open and if we are, what are we to determine from this? If we add in the fact that CEOs are stepping down or resigning from major positions around the globe, there seems to be some sort of tidal shift taking place before our very eyes. Is this an attempt at a cover-up? A coup? A way for the elite create the illusion of their own exit?
Halfway around the world. quietly, the inner circle of the elite, like Leon Panetta, Hilary Clinton and others are in Canberra, one of the proposed capitals of the New World Order, with Julia Gillard, Henry Makow and Fosdyke’s infamous witch PM to witness the solar eclipse, which is in essence a Black Sun ritual. There, in the heart of the most ancient people on Earth, beneath the darkness of the aboriginal Sun, the rituals of other worlds take place, drawing down energy from a dark god, summoning the final phases for humanities demise, while the rest of us are left to untangle the naughty knots of horny generals getting frisked by Saturn, comely spy twins and an ambitious warrior, mother of two, who works hard and played even harder. Look for the next Full Moon to illuminate these strange happenings.
On Navigating The Astrological Matrix on Wednesday, I’ll be joined by New York astrologer, William Stickevers and we’ll be discussing the news surrounding the eclipse and much more.
And now ladies and gents, let’s take that quantum bullet train back to the eighties for a little Bonnie Tyler and “Total Eclipse Of The Heart.”
History has a funny way of disappearing, or as Steve Miller once said, “Time keeps on slipping’ into the future.” Have you ever thought about the weight of memory and the mnenomic strategies we employ just to remember who we are against a psychic landscape that is becoming increasingly distorted and abstract? When you hear about a naked man eating someone’s face in the streets of Miami, you immediately and quite unconsciously do something that seems familiar; check a sports score, listen to a familiar song, stare at a photo of someone you love. While the past is being unmade through the de-sequencing of time lines via the eradication of people that are no longer in the present, the future is coming at us like some sort of weird phantasm that is getting harder and harder to recognize. Don’t worry, Jon Stewart will make a joke about it and make you laugh just a little–or try to.
Flesh eating zombies, remote controlled aerial killing machines, fetuses encased in gold, smuggled in brief cases in Asia, a chef in Japan cooks, then serves his own testicles. The invisible past. The nightmarish future. You in the present.
The Venus transit is big. Really big. We’ll get to some of that sticky syncy stuff a little later. But for now, I am going to take you down the memory hole, to try to preserve the image of a man that history here in the US is all too eager to forget and sweep under the doormat of time. John F. Kennedy.
If and when we speak of presidents past now, Lincoln’s name is almost always near the top, followed by FDR and then Reagan. Washington gets a bit of a nod since he got first. But rarely is Kennedy spoken of or mentioned and if he is, he’s associated with some weird curse that haunts a fallen Irish family; old dirty money frayed and eaten away by invisible moths that dust them with the spell of death, from generation to generation.
Kennedy was a Gemini–an archetypal Gemini. He lived in two worlds, dated and bed multiple women, even while married and was mastering the art of double switch and double cross. What we saw of Kennedy was the fusion of practical idealism, the Saturn/Neptune conjunction in the 10th House. What we didn’t see was the horny Mars/Jupiter conjunction in the 8th, along with just about every other planet of significance there as well; Mercury, Sun and Venus. Five very personal planets, hidden from the public’s prying eyes. But that 8th House is the skeleton key to Kennedy. To understand it and JFK, we must first meet his father Joe.
The old man was born in 1888 and lived until 1969. His father, “PJ” made his money in saloons and was a bare fisted street politician, organizing the rough and tumble Irish immigrants into a political machine. Let’s cut to the chase with Joe. He was brilliant and shady. He made a fortune during prohibition (which he fought for BTW). He bought Canadian Whisky from the Bronfmans in the north and rum from Onassis in the south. Yes, that Onassis, who imported not only distilled sugar cane, but other, more deadly vices. Joe Kennedy made a killing on illegal booze. (Though there are those that will dispute this).
The old man was a shark and an opportunist with an eye to the future, as a result, he got into show biz. Moving to Hollywood, he formed the famous studio, RKO Pictures and even produced a few films, mostly for his Hollywood squeeze on the side; “Gloria Swanson.” Joe made his money in movies and theaters and got out. The real killing to be made was in the stock market, where he was tipped off to the great crash before it happened. Then he sold short afterwards and made money while people were losing it. Then he moved back into the market, buying millions of shares for pennies. The old man was connected. He would later use those connections, many of them of the rather sordid, underworld type to get his son elected. In essence, Papa Joe was connected to the elites of his time. Its important to understand this, because it impacts dual nature of Kennedy and the rather secretive ways played out through is 8th House.
Joe Kennedy called in his old pals to get his son elected. One of them was Meyer Lansky, the famous Jewish gangster. Lansky would provide money and more importantly media clout. He could spin the right headline, in the right paper, on the right day, in the right town, while suppressing news on his rival; Richard Nixon. The only thing that Lansky made the old man promise him, was the the kid would have to keep his nose out of Israel’s affairs. The Kennedy clan heartily agreed and the favor machine was in motion. This would prove to be a fatal mistake for them.
Once JFK got elected, it didn’t take him long to go back on some of his promises. He had his brother go after Sam Giancanna. Bobby was attorney general and had the Sicilian mob boss in his cross-hairs. Meanwhile, JFK became increasingly impatient with Israel and its expansionist aims in the middle east and actually had veto measures against Israel in the UN. This did not sit well with them.
That’s where we get double cross, double jeopardy moves that Kennedy orchestrated. One week they’re at the Sands in Vegas watching MK beta moll, Marilyn Monroe sing, while Sam Ginacanna’s in the same room. They’re buying each other drinks and passing Marilyn around like she was plate of hors d’oeuvres. John, Bobby and Sam were all doing her. The next week, they’re busting illegal trucking rings and making Giancanna’s life a mess.
Gemini is the sign of spy craft and double cross.
For all of his star power (Kennedy was the first rock star president), his Sun is marginally aspected. He has a Sun/Moon square, a Sun/Venus conjunction and Sun/Neptune trine. The Sun/Moon square is interesting, since his Moon was in Virgo, noted for its overly moral outlook, especially when it comes to being harshly critical of the emotions. Gemini is not into morality plays. Its into experience without judgment. The Venus conjunction of course gave Kennedy sex appeal. He was the first president that unrepentantly flashed it or maybe even had it, though I think that the traitorous (and vain) Woodrow Wilson fancied himself a dandy of sorts.
With all those planets in the 8th House, Kennedy was aware of conspiracies. One of his greatest speeches of all time touches on this very fact. And you wonder why he’s elbowed out of the margin of the frame, edited out of the movie? One of the turning points for JFK came when he had one of his 8th House dalliances–perhaps the most potently transformational. One of Kennedy’s hottest and certainly his most fated affair was with Mary Pinchot Meyer (10/14/20).
Mary Pinchot Meyer was the ex-wife of Cord Meyer, then head of the CIA and a 20 degree Libra. Her Sun was exact to JFK’s 20 degree Libra Ascendant. She also had Moon and Mercury in Scorpio in his first house. To say they had a connection was an understatement.
This was also when the CIA was experimenting heavily with LSD. They had a Harvard professor by the name of Timothy Leary on their payroll. It has been speculated by insider heads that Mary Pinchot Meyer knew Tim Leary through her husband and was getting grass and tabs of acid from him. Powered by an intense Scorpio stellium, she was passing it off to her girlfriends, who were having affairs with elected officials and heads of state. This wasn’t random. This was an inside job. The goddess was supplying her minions with colorless, odorless, micro-powered gnosis. They were instigating the awakening of the feminine spirit in American politics, dosing the patriarchy, staging a psychic coup. And Mary Pinchot Meyer’s alchemical flame was JFK. She would wind up dead in a D.C. park, just less than a year after JFK’s assassination.
When the two of them would steal away to a Georgetown apartment, Kennedy’s consciousness was getting an epic re-set between the sheets, with the ex-wife of the of the head of one of the world’s most powerful spy agencies. The Vietnam war was in its initial stages, still a “conflict” and had not yet become the blown out social battlefield it was fated to be.
With Pluto in the 9th, JFK had a deep desire to effect profound and lasting change on the world. He was ready to not just wind down the war, but set the United States on a very different path.
While it seems like Obama is enacting an executive order every other day now, the EOs have their genesis in the Kennedy administration and were being set up to be used in times of emergency. Well once they were put into place, Kennedy drew up “EO 1111.” With its enactment, he took silver out of circulation for the minting of coins. Kennedy, the master Gemini dualist had plan. He was going to essentially corner the silver market through the Hunt Brothers and John Connelly, then governor of Texas. They were going to run the silver table and then have it become the default currency of the US, displacing Federal Reserve notes. They were going to do this through Texas, which has the right and power to print its own money, since it is a country unto itself, with a renewable treaty, that as a formality, gets re-upped each year. Kennedy, Connolly and the Hunt Brothers were engineering their own clear break. Unfortunately the silver price was manipulated and the Hunt Brothers were left holding silver and silver certificates that dipped wel below their market value. They were ruined. And Kennedy, well you know the rest and if you don’t, well let’s get into it a bit. Grab your miners hat and follow me down the rabbit hole.
JFK was killed on 11/22 which is of course 33 and the number of the “Sovereign Inspector General” in the Scottish Rite. Dallas is just beneath the 33rd parallel (32+).
The Sun was in Scorpio at 29 degrees (11). The Moon was in Aquarius at 11 degrees. The True Node was in Cancer, also at 11 degrees. Add all three together and you get 33. Chiron was in Pisces at 10 degrees–in the first house. The event will the have its Chiron return in 2013 on March 13th. Chiron in Pisces is about lifting the veil of illusion, denial and shame and it is very prominently placed in this chart. The Sun at the time of his death was conjunct the mid-heaven at the anoretic degree. But the key elements/symbols to the chart are Saturn/Moon, both in Aquarius, in the 12th House. Classically, the 12th House represents hidden enemies. It has loftier meaning as well, but I am really interested in the Aquarian connection here. Saturn/Moon conjunction can be hard, especially in the air signs. In Aquarius, the emotional body in these two planets is cold, detached, almost clinical. Saturn here is about to be born into awareness as it rises into prominence, in the first house.
If the Kennedy assassination as some speculate was a ritual, what was it for? In addition to removing a president that was becoming problematic to a number of disparate factions; Israel, The Mob, The MIC, The Black Families, it also triggered the birth of “The Age Of Aquarius.” We can see this with Saturn/Moon, cold, unfeeling and detached, getting ready to hatch.
On the same day that Kennedy was killed, the Beatles released their second LP, With The Beatles which was their first release in North America. Their previous record, Please, Please Me made its debut on 3/22/63. They began the recording sessions for Please, Please Me on 9/11/62. The album art for both records is interesting, but notice not only the darkness and shadow of With The Beatles but also the single vision, the eye of Horus imagery on each one of the lads from Liverpool. 9/11, 3/22, 11/22. In 1968, on 11/22, The Beatles released The White Album which contained both “Revolution 1″ and “Revolution 9″ along with of course, “Helter Skelter.” It also happened to be the five-year-anniversary of the death of JFK.
So here is is my theory; It is my belief that the Kennedy assassination was more than just a conspiracy or even a dark magical ritual–it was an event that hacked and altered this timeline. As a result of Kennedy’s death at that exact time, we’re now occupying the shadow of the the age of Aquarius, a darker, alternate manifestation of what was “supposed” to occur, which would have been a more true and organic realization of unity consciousness rather than the current synthetic version, which would be peddled by another Gemini, two decades later–we’re talking Gemini, George Bush and the “New World Order.”
With Saturn in Aquarius and the profound Uranus/Pluto conjunctions set to happen up through the “Summer Of Love” not just the US, but the world was aligned to truly “Come Together” and what really happened was that it was ripped apart, torn asunder, trampled under foot by trauma after trauma. We saw the rise of conflict between blacks and whites, women and men, parents and children, the establishment and youth. The Vietnam war was a massive wedge cleaving through all of them, separating, dividing and conquering and not without blood. The war begat violent social activism and spawned the likes of Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground. Ayers would then go on to eventually mentor Barack Obama and even write one of his books, “Dreams Of My Father.”
If Kennedy had lived, the Vietnam war would have ended earlier and there is no Bill Ayers as we know him and Barack Obama might have had just as good a time running a Hawaiin shirt shack on the North Shore as he’s having now as president. Nixon would have likely never served as president and the dollar would never have been adopted as the world’s reserve currency, used specifically to purchase oil and now teeters on the edge of extinction.
When we look at cultural ciphers and touch points for the dark age of Aquarius and the crooked timeline we’re now inhabiting, we see Betty Friedan publishing “The Feminine Mystique” which becomes the Gideon Bible for feminists and ultimately fuels more division. In September of 1963, Marvel released the first “X-Men” comic. The “X-Men” are thoroughly Aquarian; rebel mutant outcasts, fighting for acceptance and fighting against the forces of evil that would enslave the world that castigates and demonizes them. And of course, there’s the Beatles, who on the heels of the death of Kennedy, would have themselves inserted into the public’s consciousness and offer up a new form of worship. LSD would become the social sacrament for a generation ready to taste a new religion of electrified revelations. The Beatles in turn would become the avatars of this alternate, dark-new-age.
Kennedy as we established was a Gemini. George Bush, the man who is said to be intimately connected with the Kennedy assassination is also a Gemini. John Hinckley, the would be assassin of James Brady and Ronald Reagan was born on the same day as Kennedy. Hinckley was the son of one of George Bushes business partners.
From a symbolic level, the death of Kennedy/Gemini also represents the death of duality. This would have its ultimate manifestation in the fall of the Twin Towers (Gemini) and the next great American conspiracy; 9/11.
With the erection of the “One World Trade Center” we’re going to witness the capstone of the great plan, which may or may not coincide with the collapse of the global economy, which seems to be creeping ever closer with each passing day.
In retrospect its easy to see why the life and death of JFK gets more generic and less memorable, whited out in the re-telling of history.
He was the last president that was an outsider and saw the opportunity to level the playing field. When listening to his speech on a vast global conspiracy, one gets a sense as to where he was headed. Flawed, human, but grappling with interplay of shadow and light through the labyrinth of deceit and illusion, Kennedy was the embodiment of America and the hope of true unification for not just the USA, but the world at large. Instead we’re now being force fed a synthetic hologram of disturbed consensus, polarized deeper and deeper at every turn, closer and closer to utter demoralization.
VENUS RETROGRADE/VENUS TRANSIT
Something truly big is happening right now with relationships and I’m not talking about MK Beta Kitten, Mary Kate Olson (Gemini) shagging Nick Sarkozy’s brother. Something more slightly akin to the Kennedy/Pinchot Meyer connection. We’re talking soul-to-soul. Why this retrograde and why now? Well, it comes on the heels of the annular eclipse and as a preface to the Venus Transit, which we won’t see for another 155 years! And then there’s the Uranus/Pluto square, which could indeed usher in the clash of the will of the people (Uranus in Aries) and the established corporatocracy (Pluto in Capricorn). With NATO, G8 and Bilderberg all happening on American soil, together, for the first time, it signals that time is almost up here. “Prometheus” opened today and while it might be just propaganda for the gods that walk amongst us, from a Venus Retrograde perspective, its a prequel, which has us re-visit the original “Alien” and out relationship with it. There’s something about this Venus transit as it crosses the Sun, dwarfed by its solar magnificence, that is re-kindles the memory and importance of finding your kin, the members of your own lost tribe and remembering why you decided to come here. This can obviously manifest in one-on-one relationships, but the Sag Moon is not one for sitting still. The human heart doesn’t idle for long in the Sagittarian Moon. The Sag Moon is about emotional FREEDOM. So the Venus transit is sparks re-calibrating and renewing timeless bonds, but with the Sag Moon, it doesn’t settle. Its wild and free. Perhaps its the kind of love that Mary Pinchot Meyer and JFK had, re-uniting for a real purpose of somatic liberation, fusing sex and an awakened pineal gland for an opportunity to re-cast the world in a softer light with brilliant colors.
Watch for more and more chatter about timelines in the technosphere. There’s a reason for it. Time as we know it is about to change, and we have one shot at jumping tracks back to a more congruent reality. Find your tribe.
Its early Saturday morning. The Sun and the Moon are getting ready to dance together, the degrees dissolve in ancient familiarity, timeless, immutable and inevitable. In the early hours of Saturday, I’m listening to the robot chatter of talking heads on FOX. Like magpies on a line they incessantly chirp. The feet on the ground in Europe go from a stealthy patter to the rumbling of the human herd in a flight of panic. Here’s a dirty little secret; there’s a bank run happening in Europe and it’s happening just as the eclipse is sliding into place.
In ancient Chinese culture, eclipses were likened to great dragons, devouring earth and sky. Need I remind you that we are in the year of the dragon?
Since 2010, China has been quietly divesting itself, along with Japan and Russia of their dollar reserves. The BRIC countries have been working hand-in-glove to position the Yuan as a potential new reserve currency. China even set up Yuan bonds to help facilitate further destruction to US dollar dependence. While americans do their best to fight off a very real and crippling inflation, rising by the day by shopping at WalMart, the Chinese could give a rats ass about us buying their cheap goods. They’ve been quietly shifting their economy from one based on the production and export of goods, to the consumption of their own goods domestically. The Chinese have known for years that americans would ultimately no longer be able to afford their crappy products and when that day came, they’d need to be free from the pernicious drip line of dirt cheap american dollars. Well, that day is nearly at hand.
One of my readers made the connection that this eclipse begins in Asia with the rise of the Yuan. Metaphorically speaking, the dragon descends down from the north and into the west, spreading across the continent, into the heartland. Let’s take a look at the eclipse in its penumbral phase as it gathers momentum in the heart of the dragon’s lair at 5:09 AM on the 21st, in Guangzhou.
Here we see the forces of commerce, mammon, aka the golden bull assembled in the first house, getting ready to migrate across the celestial plain. The Moon is at the anoretic degree, which is always a tenuous degree for any planet/sign. The anoretic degree is symbolic of a state change. Its similar to the final stages of the chrysalis phase where new forms aren’t quite fully manifest, but oh so close. The anoretic degree is a vulcanized state where metals are fluid and the necessary chaos of alchemy is in full effect.
In the astrological order of evolution, Gemini represents the dawning of a dualistic consciousness. The primal and undifferentiated order of Eden (Taurus) gives way to the realization of the other. The zygote splits and the journey towards self and self-reflection begins. As the Moon moves into Gemini and eclipses the Sun, here is where China becomes conscious of itself at a new level and the split from the U.S. in underway. Here is where China literally eclipses America.
In chinese astrology, May is the month of the snake and adding to its complexity, it is a leap month and it is sixty days long. Shedding skin, transforming from one form to another China emerges as something more visible than ever before. As the Moon moves from Taurus (Snake) it shifts into Gemini (Horse) and breaks out from the herd.
Sightless, like the very darkness of the Moon itself, Chinese dissident, Chen Guangchen heads to the US on United Airlines flight 44 in the hours just leading up to the eclipse. Chen comes from a rural background and upbringing and was deeply involved in farmers (Taurus) rights. Keep in mind that the US Sibley chart has Gemini on the descendant. Hilary Clinton and US law professor, Jerome Cohen engineered Chen’s literal and figurative flight. China could have easily disappeared Chen, but as it moves from one state (Communism) to another (Socialist Capitalism) it could upset the erratic and vulcanic nucleus at its own core. However, Chen is also a symbolic precursor of China’s arrival, in sync with the eclipse. Blind and in a wheelchair, Chen is a trojan horse arriving from the east. He is the docile face of China. Chen’s natal Saturn in Gemini at 4 degrees conjuncts the eclipsed Sun and new Moon. His arrival is fated.
Lurking in the 8th House, just getting ready to break into the dawn of the 9th is Pluto in Capricorn, cocked and loaded, generating friction, sparking, getting ready to get sprung. Uranus is in the 11th House, where international relations rise and fall.
As we inch closer to the eclipse moment, its interesting to note that todays birthdays include, Malcolm X, Tito, Pol Pot and Ho Chi Minh. I’m not making this up.
An old friend sent me the following a few days back.
COOKING THE ECLIPSE
Hey so i have this idea. I have been wanting to try something like this out, they say go big or go home. well, this is how i will focus my attention up to and during the eclipse. no such thing as on time when you are working out of time, right? and if you like my concept please let us stack our efforts, and tell any others who may be able to concentrate in such a manner.
The annular eclipse is a portal of sorts, then it is a lens, yes? Put something in, get something out. okay, I am thinking psychotronics, something like create a localized vacuum establish a dipole inside, allow energy to flow, collapse the vacuum. boom. or something along those lines.
The people at the reactor in Japan I understand are becoming discorded from being slapped with all that radiation? all over everywhere? Well if this eclipse is so special and powerful, couldn’t’ we set up toroids around Fukushima and Chicago simultaneously to transfer and transmute the whole mess to Chicago? They just might turn into bumbling idiots. i have learned to not get too invested in the result, but clear intention knows no bounds. think scalar baby. Here we go;
In the spirit of 26 Aquarius, for this experiment you will need to visualize:
2 localized torus 1 lens (hosted by the Sun and Moon) As many dipoles as possible. A vacuum inside each toroid (or additional conjugate destination toward neutralizing evil) All the love in your heart. No malice required, so they can stew in their own juices. More consciousness the better.
So there you go. If you want to play with some metaphysical mechanics, break out some toroids, dipoles, a few close friends, breath together, love and surf the dark wave of the Sun. In the end and right now, all we can do is surrender. In times of chaos and disorder, heroes are born
Tomorrow night at 6PM US Cali time, I’ll be doing a special eclipse show where I’ll be joined by musical visionary Richard Mystical Sun from Mt. Shasta, astrologer, Melody Scott Zindell from Colorado, poet Dora McQuaid from New Mexico, and neo-pagan, arch-mage, Sarsen, from Chicago. We’ll talk eclipse and how the psychic landscape is unfolding in the areas they’re in. Please click here to get the show info.
I’m not reconciled at all with this upcoming eclipse. I keep going back to my last post and there’s a feeling, a vibe that I get when I finish a post, that I did not get when I published it. The feeling I get is usually a rewarding one where I feel more complete, more whole than when I sat down and stared into the grey of a blank screen. After I hit “publish” on the last post, it was more of a relief of having finished it than really capturing the zeitgeist of the aspect.
In the hours after publishing it, I’m still not resolved around the upcoming energy.
As I look at the path of the eclipse, over and over again, I see its troubling shadow grow and expand across the face of asia, crossing over the deeply troubled prefecture of Fukushima and the Daichi power plant, where reactor number four is hanging by a thread. It then stretches across the ring of fire and touches the west coast (where I live) and then moves inland, finally dissipating in the midwest.
Last night I dreamt of a prison camp run by men with broken english. It felt like an encroaching version of an alternate reality that was getting closer and closer. I once lived in a flat in San Francisco that I was convinced was a portal, one of those odd places where strangely attractive phenomenon occurred on a semi-regular basis. There were ghosts and time travel. Last nights dream reminded me of that slipstream in the heart of the mission.
Normally, I can use my Mars in the 8th and Scorpio ascendant to transmute the darkness. I’ve had a lifetimes worth of practice. I was raised by a half-demon father, who would descend in fugues of rage. I studied at the back hand of Varjrapani, seasoning me for the awakening of lives and lifetimes yet to come. And yet, the enormity of this coming eclipse signals to me that this is no mere movement, no arbitrary date to be gotten through. It demands conscious awareness and even skillful preparation; fasting, cleansing, house cleaning, dressing for the event with proper attire.
In ancient times, it was the spiritual elite that had the coordinates of the eclipse passed onto them by court astrologers and viziers. Commoners often were not aware of the eclipse in the making. Thus, by prophesying the advent of the eclipse to his or her followers, the king and queen assumed a special relationship with the heavens, forming an intimate bond with the gods themselves. Knowledge as they say, equals power.
So here we are, staring down the yawning chasm of 2012, Greece is defaulting again and Chase just blew $2 billion large with nary sideways glance from anyone in DC or the media. The breezy nonchalance borders on arrogance, like the deal is already done and there isn’t shit you can do about it. And yet, still, I look at the geometry of the skies for the weekend ahead, trying to visualize it as a lens through which we can pour our conscious intention, firing up the cosmic grid with loving awareness, blending with the energies, then surrendering, letting go.
So, with that in mind, lets take another look at the eclipse.
I keep coming back to Neptune, the squares between it and the Moon, Sun and Jupiter. What do we crave more than anything right now? In a world saturated in genetically modified, high fructose, semi-comatose awareness, we crave the stable and alkalinizing enzymes of the truth. Anything less now just gives us a headache. Neptune is being challenged in the squares. We’re being challenged by the squares.
Versus the always shifting tides of the Moon, we cannot believe everything we feel. Versus the Sun, we question the veracity of solar agents; sun kings and may queens, calling out their unquestioned divine right of rule. Versus Jupiter, we question the absolutism of our beliefs and how willing and able we are to masticate the sacrament of meaning, no matter what ideological shit biscuit is being served up.
This eclipse will challenge that, especially as the Sun and Jupiter move through the house of shadows and light.
What if we could have a collective moment where the scales fall away, even if briefly and we are left with the challenge of explaining it, taking it in, moving through disclosure, disbelief and denial to deliverance? And given that we’re talking about some form of revelation, what would it look like? Could our eyes be trusted? How long before the wizards of spin could delete the memory and conjure a new program in its wake? We’re talking about a flashpoint, something so undeniable that it strains credulity. Could we handle the truth or are our pineal glands far-too-calcified to shine a truly divine light on this holographic domain?
Neptune is also opposing Mars. If some revelation is at hand, would we be too hung up on the Virgoan details, breaking it down into its various particulates until there is nothing remaining save some unrecognizable strands, all twisted up and compromised, like our very own DNA? Eclipse or not, this is the dilemma we face. And guess what? Not everyone has the same investment in ripping the veils of illusion away. Some people make really good money propagating illusion. One of my readers just turned me onto Es Devlin (interesting name, yes?). She’s in charge of designing the closing ceremonies of the London Olympics, just 66 days away on the heels of the eclipse. Miss Es Devlin’s clients include Lady Gaga, Muse, Jay Z, Kanye and others. Her use of full color spectrum and light in her work is quite illuminating.
You see, some people don’t give a shit about the truth, because reaping illusion is a lot more creative, fun and yes, profitable. Even William Blake, who figured mightily in my dream last night loved Milton for his imagination yet also despised him because at the end of the day, he turned “Paradise Lost” into a morality tale.
But the opposition doesn’t have to degrade into disempowerment. Sometimes an opposition is just that–opposition. We can look to the early sixties when Saturn was in Aquarius opposing the True Node in Leo. It heralded the decade that was to follow. In the year that John F. Kennedy was ritually snuffed out, Betty Friedan released “The Feminine Mystique.” Friedan was an Aquarius who has the rare distinction of being born and dying on the same date (Feb 4). The Beatles released their debut record, “Please Please Me” on 3/22. Martin Luther King, Ralph Abernathy and Fred Shuttlesworth were arrested in Alabama, for protesting without a permit, thus launching the civil rights movement. Here we can see the seeds of dissent planted in the consciousness of the collective psyche, which would lead to opposition, controlled and otherwise on a number of fronts.
So the Mars/Neptune opposition speaks of pragmatic and real vs ideal and out of touch. Mars in Virgo really is the masses to be honest with you. Virgo is the most defined and differentiated sign in the zodiac, opposite the undefined and vastness of oneness that is Pisces. Put into this context, keep your eyes on Greece and the bank run now taking place, building momentum, threatening the global marketplace. Monetarily, the masses are antsy and on the move.
Are we feeling better yet?
As the semi-darkness of the eclipse descends upon the streets of Chicago, where the military heads of state gather to plan the next decade of wars, the ghost of Saul Alinksy moves like a shadow amongst the spirit of man, whispering dark stratagems and designs of dualistic proportion over cocktails and ideological immersion. They toast to their brilliance, not even knowing that their supposed thoughts aren’t even their own. Cutting through a well marbled filet, the blood of the heartland’s beasts mingles with the minds of men who sacrificed Christ time and time again over a thousand universes.
More on this very important eclipse in the days to come.
The Super Moon has come and gone. The West Coast is still here. Fukushima’s reactor 4 teeters on the edge, getting ready to take most of humanity over the precipice of existence with it. But hey, Barack Obama is down with same sex marriage. Woo hoo! If reactor 4 goes, none of us will be able to procreate anyway, so what the hell. Right?
All my left coast new ager friends just lap it up. They’ve fused the flush of social justice with a little Eckhart Tolle, some ambient Dalai Lama and a holier-than-thou feel goodism, wrapped up in a sweet bhajan. I had to laugh at one of them posting on FB. He quoted Clint Eastwood getting all tough and hard about the right for gay/same sex marriages to take place. This from a guy that couldn’t handle his own marriage, kicking a dear friend to the curb at 63, sending her out to an uncertain world with little to no career prospects and even less hard resources.
She’ll be fine, in spite of his clumsy and cold endgame.
Well, we are just six days from the NATO, G8 Summit and the annular solar eclipse. This is a biggie folks, a dark portal that needs total awareness and deeply observant consciousness. The NATO summit is taking place in Chicago, which has been commandeered by Rahm Emanuel, one third of the Emanuel power trio that influences the media (his brother, super agent Ari), medicine (his brother Zeke, who co-authored Obamacare) and politics (Rahm, emperor of Chicago). Emanuel as emperor of Chicago during a NATO summit under the annular eclipse, well, could it get more weird?
The answer to the question is, likely.
Just like London will be in just a few short weeks as well, Chicago will be less of a city than a network of checkpoints and nearly total surveillance. The cost for all of this “safety” is of course being footed by the taxpayers of Chicago, which goes into the pockets of Rahm’s family and friends who likely run the companies pledged to keep things safe. I’m always amazed by how we fund and bankroll our own bondage. But since we’re not making a damn thing here anymore, security and surveillance are the cash cows. Your local congressman or senator will almost always sign off on anything related to security and surveillance (SS) because its a blanket feel good, a social soporific that allows them to con themselves into feeling all right about their complete and utter denial. So what are the stars saying, for that fated day of potential skull duggery, boot thuggery and false flaggery?
First off, let’s talk about this eclipse proper. Its a major eclipse in that it impacts large swaths of the planet and it will be visible in major portions of the USA, particularly the west coast. It literally begins in Asia, then sweeps eastwards towards the states. This is a major red flag for the ring of fire and the earthquake zones of the pacific.
When I had Rob Tillet on my show during the prelude to last years big eclipse, we talked about how eclipses impact people. He made a very strong case citing previous ones, where natural disasters often follow in their wake. In 1999, on August 11th, the annular eclipse preceded a quake that struck Turkey just six days later, killing over 14,000 people. In 1978, just hours after the total eclipse in Iran, over 25,000 people perished in an earthquake.
Considering the breadth and shadow of this eclipse, peaking in Alaska, visible for five long minutes, its got people more than just a little squirrely. Reactor 4 in Fukushima is already on a death watch and 5.0+ quake could send it and us over the edge.
It starts in Asia as a penumbral eclipse at 20:56 UT. The total eclipse starts at 22:11 UT. For all you numerology fans, take note of those digits, master numbers adding up to of course, 33. At the end of this post, I’ll link to a site that nicely illustrates the path of the eclipse.
So by the time it hits Chicago, here’s what the eclipse should look like as well as the stars around it.
Ladies and gentleman, I give you the chart of Chicago on 5/20/12 or 5 (May) on the 20th of 2012, or May on 2012, aka Mayan 2012, which takes place at 3:56PM, local time.
I’m immediately drawn to the Sun/Jupiter/Mercury conjunction in the 8th House. The Sun is mutable T-Square with Mars and Neptune. In the 8th House, identities, thought, motivations, and pushes towards expansion are hidden. The Moon/Neptune square, with Moon in the 9th and Neptune in the 5th, brings with it a touch of religious zealotry. Squaring Chiron as well, we cannot necessarily trust out own perceptions, or at the very least, they could be so incredulous, that we could accept or fathom how we perceive things on a collective scale.
There’s always a dual meaning assigned to Gemini and in the realm of the emotions, there’s a bit of ambivalence. The Gemini Moon is the most journalistic/witness driven Moon. It’s observant with a penchant for intellectualizing the emotions. In the 9th House, the cool-headedness of Gemini gives way to a much more zealous emotional position. The 9th house is foreign countries. International relations. The Moon there, in darkness reflects emotional motivations which are obscured by shadows. Intent is not clear or bright.
Squaring Mars, its fired up. Mars in Virgo is all about the details and here, in the 11th House, the masses are critical. The Gemini Moon in the 9th House says, “To Hell With Details” we want action! We want feeling! Squaring Neptune, the hidden Gemini Moon is deluded by its purpose. There’s a thrust for feeling powered by the dramatic stage of the 5th House. We’re talking spectacle. Neptune/Chiron opposing Mars in Pisces/Virgo is outright deception. Motivations must be throughly examined and vetted.
Neptune itself is mightily challenged, squaring not only the Moon, but the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter. Its also squares the TN in Sag, where again, we encounter the vagaries surrounding the truth, law, principles and morality. The Moon’s position indicates a blotting out of the Sun, which in many ways, makes the Moon and its effects even more powerful. Its lunar qualities eclipse that of the Sun and the solar masculine, giving way to the dark feminine. Speaking of the dark of the Moon, Black Moon Lilith, in Taurus is also cloaked and hiding, the power behind the throne so to speak.
In Taurus, BML transmutes into Hathor, cow and fertility goddess (4th dynasty). In the 8th House, on this hour, this day, she descends into the underworld. This is a natural progression for Lilith aka “Persephone” or “Pro-Serpentina” both goddesses of the underworld. The fixity of these three planets/aspects (Lilith/Mercury/Sun) all in Taurus and in the 8th crystalizes actions and events, creating long lasting impacts that reach into the future. Is there an inherent darkness in this chart? You bet your ass their is. Are there redeeming aspects as well? Yes.
Saturn is is still in Libra, and last time I checked, its still exalted. In the first house, it demand fairness. It trines Venus nicely, which offers some form of expansion and is the highest point of perception in the chart. Both trine Neptune in Pisces. Perhaps in times of disaster and chaos, humans rise to the occasion and help others with unconditional support and care. It was the best of times and worst of times. Out of the fiery squares of darkness, casting and fixing fate into the amber perpetuity comes the light of compassion, clarity and justice, interpenetrating the shadows dancing in the void.
Leading up to the eclipse. The Sun’s run up to the first degree of Gemini, where the eclipse occurs starts in Asia at 29 degrees. That’s where it begins. At 29 degrees Taurus, an interesting Sabian symbol emerges;
A PEACOCK PARADING ON THE TERRACE OF AN OLD CASTLE
I love Dane Rudhyar’s interpretation of the symbols and often source them for a number of reasons, but mostly for Rudhyar’s superior mind. However, he was, like most occultists an adept of older systems like the Golden Dawn and more contemporary and relating to his time; theosophy. He sees the epochs of man as cycles reflected in the degrees of the symbols, all leading to the magical process of evolving both the suprahuman and the supra-collective, which nurtures and promotes the superior consciousness. The problem is, is that this exalts an elite caste of magical practitioners. Rudhyar often refers to this as hierarchy, which is the same language used by theosophists and perhaps even more to the point, Alice Bailey’s Lucis Trust. This symbol illustrates Rudhyar’s love affair with the spiritual elite; ” KEYNOTE: The personal display of inherited gifts. A great person able to display a multitude of gifts is always, at one level or another, the consummation of a long past of efforts and victories. As a great occultist once wrote: “Adepts are the flowering of their races and cultures.” The peacock is the bird consecrated to Venus; in occult tradition the Promethean Spirits who gave to animal mankind the divine gift of self-conscious intelligence had come from “Venus” — which may or may not refer to the physical planet we can observe in the sky. This is the final symbol of the fourth scene, whose Keyword has been given as “Confirmation.” This peacock symbol indeed confirms the social status of the owner of the ancestral estate. It indicates a CONSUMMATION of individual efforts; and it suggests that such a consummation is hardly possible except when a line of “ancestors” — biological or spiritual — forms its base.
This is the lead in for the Annular Eclipse as it gains momentum in the penumbral stage on the 20th, in Asia.
So what will take place? Earthquakes? Floods? Volcanos? Tsunamis? Riots? What devils will show themselves? What angels will be revealed?
How does the Moon in Gemini, the dark Moon in the 9th reflect what’s really going on in Chicago where an amalgam of nations decide on the future course of the world, its wars, revolts and internecine conflicts? And most importantly, how does it effect you? Stay present and patient. Tether your camel and trust in God. You’ll find out soon enough.

Home. Where is it? What does it mean? These are questions that are reverberating through the space of our times. Last night an old friend stopped by. He was without a place to stay, roaming from job-to-job at this point. Another friend is considering abandoning his apartment for life in his car, parked at night near the sanctified confines of local churches. A recent client has been using her mother’s home as a chrysalis, getting ready to re-hatch her life back into the world. LeBron James left his home and bolted for a new one, raising all kinds of questions about loyalty and commitment in the process (more about LeBron later).
I pondered these questions about home as residents around the gulf are reporting all kinds of sickness, all occurring around their homes. The oil is gushing, unabated now, as BP removed part of the well head today, hastening it’s unimpeded flow into the home waters of the south. People down there might be forced to leave their homes.
The concept of home rose to the surface of my consciousness as I watched a blues band bang out standards in the center of my town, my home, a place that I have called home since last year, as I left on my Hejira, just up the road. It came on the heels of three days in a psych ward, where I witnessed the sad state of human wreckage that called that and other places like it “home.” It took a journey into the orphic depths for me to find the lost parts of my soul, the mad and disenfranchised strands of self, shunned by me as a coping mechanism to get by in this world. They were all there, in male in female form. I gathered them unto me and led them out, back into the light. I brought them home. A year later, almost to the day, my father died, in his home, thus completing my turn around the Sun.
With the Sun in Cancer, New Moon in Cancer, Solar Eclipse, the idea and ideal of “home” is moving to the front and center for many people. It is illuminating what’s important to us and how we can use the home, any home, whether it’s rooted in rebar or attached to ones back, to be the fertile ground for cracking through to new life and sustaining the momentum of growth.
The Sabian symbol for the Solar Eclipse tomorrow is THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. On a day when the Sun is eclipsed, we do not view our shadows and all is brought forth into the clarity of day to witness. Here we see on the New Moon, the symbol of germination, of breaking through and beginning a heliotropic journey towards the light. In essence, grow where you are planted and if there is not enough light and sustenance, cast yourself to the winds of change land somewhere that you can.
Through my readings with people, I have gleaned that we are in the act of finishing up business and getting with the art of living. The time for processing is over. You’ve been here a thousand times already. You know enough. Let the unfoldment of multi-level potential germinate.
When we deal with the concept of breakthrough, we often frame it in dramatic terms, like finding the right work, or the right partner, or manifesting something we have desired and worked towards, but it’s often the case that breakthrough can be as simple and humble as the first fissure in the hard membrane of the seed wall. That tiny fracture cannot be underestimated as a monumental event in the life of the organism that emerges. It’s as critical as the first fall of fruit and the next generation of seed. Without it, there is no life. Our lives are comprised of any number of these moments and the beauty is, is that you have a choice in these moments as they emerge.
It’s how you respond.
Do you give your power away for approval or need?
You will let another snuff out your light for acceptance?
Will you react in the middle of a fire fight between out-of-control egos?
Will you consistently choose wholeness and integration over diffusion and defracation?
Can you respond from a place of third option, a creative alternative to polarity and duality?
It’s these things that manifest in everyday acts that allow us to chip away at the hard husk of separation and risk the reward of journeying towards the light. Breakthrough is just one thought and one breath away. It’s always there. Read the rest of this entry »
2013 is going to be a major year and I am looking forward to continuing to bring you compelling radio content along with a synchromesh of astrology, symbolism, political awareness and free thought here at the website. Any contributions to help me keep my basic expenses paid are greatly appreciated. Robert
My English doppelganger, Darren Williams, delivers angles, asides and observations from his perch in LIverpool. Darren is a two of clubs as am I (the conversation card) and hails from where my grandmother was born and raised. Darren's observations from the world of sport, esoterica, music, the BBC and film are top notch.
In this drop, he breaks down the BBC TV show, "Stella" and while it looks like a basic, run-of-the-mill Britcom, Daz unravels the codex magica within the seemingly mundane, casting a LED spell across the UK's airwaves. To read more, CLICK HERE.
