USA Horoscope

USA Horoscope

Which USA Horoscope to use has often been a hotly debated topic on astrology forums, and seen a few guys banned around the place. There are many dates and times to choose from but there is one US horoscope which is gets the most attention.

The Sibly chart is the most commonly used by professional astrologers and for good reason. Ebenezer Sibly was an English astrologer and Freemason who had inside information about the Declaration on Independence, which occurred on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He used the time of 5:10 pm for the USA horoscope. In The Book of World Horoscopes, Nicholas Campion mentions the Sibly chart on page 365:

“it is therefore THE horoscope which signifies independence”

Proving the USA Horoscope

The very best way I have found to see if a national horoscope is accurate, is to test it against the country’s first atomic test. As always, I use precession correction for transits to get the best results. The Trinity Test occurred on July 16, 1945 at the Trinity Site, New Mexico, at 5:29:21 am. Below are the transits to the Sibly USA horoscope for that explosion. They prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the most accurate USA astrology chart is the Sibly chart.

USA Sibly Horoscope

North Node conjunct Jupiter 0°46′
Pluto conjunct North Node 0°24′
Neptune conjunct MC 0°30′
Uranus conjunct DC 0°52′
Saturn conjunct Sun 0°04′
Jupiter conjunct Lilith 0°57′

The Battle of Antietam

The Battle of Antietam (see chart) on September 17, 1862 near Sharpsburg, Maryland was the bloodiest day in United States history, with a combined tally of 22,717 dead, wounded, or missing. The following are transits (conjunctions only) from the battle horoscope to the USA Horoscope (Sibly):

Solar Eclipse conjunct Venus 0°00′
Quarter Moon conjunct Mars 0°27′
Neptune conjunct IC 0°26′
Uranus conjunct Mars 1°55′
Mercury conjunct Saturn 0°34′
Sun conjunct Neptune 0°38′
Moon conjunct Jupiter 0°51′
Ascendant conjunct Lilith 0°11′

The rising star in the USA Horoscope is Ras Algethi in constellation Hercules. Ebertin says: “Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power.” Robson says: “When rising it can mean a wise and clever man, but can also indicate an individual trained in various tricks, a liar who deceives with different kinds of plots.”

  1. Your remark about “US Federal Reserve injecting $660 Billion into the economy”…….It is just a small payback…as the Fed has ripped off the American citizens for decades…..a cruel and sinister endeavor which does not remedy the situation as it stands……

    • The “national debt” is simply the amount that the Fed has ripped off the American citizenry…..none of this wold have happened without the collusion of the bankers in 1914 in the creation of the Fed….and thus , the symbolic yet real robbery that has been ongoing…

      • Thanks for the insights Tim. I just found a chart for the Federal Reserve from Bill Meridian (, 29 Dec 1913, 6:02 pm, the White House. Transiting Uranus conjunct MC and square Sun and Pluto this year.

  2. inaguration BO was VOC moon, lacks focus, vacation minded, push mentw/ vacuum, fear fills, terror, hunger, disaster, better to do nothing, effort produces vacuum, fear fills…..

    • Yeh, they did another swearing in the next morning, away from cameras and public view, telling perhaps.

  3. Great article! Reading it made me think of the assassination of J.F.K. and the major effects it had on America so I looked at the transits for that time which were pretty amazing!

    Transit mars 19.56 and venus 20.29 opposite US Mars 21.22
    Transit uranus 9.47 square US uranus 8.55
    Transit pluto 14.03 square US ascendant 12.21
    Transit north node 11.54 conjunct US sun, triggering the lunar eclipse of july 6th the previous summer which was exactly opposite the US sun 14.06 – removal of an important male figure resulting in a complete change in america’s soul purpose.

    Hopefully the July 1st solar eclipse this summer won’t spell as much devastation to the country’s growth and much needed new form of governance.

    As regards the solar eclipse conjunct the US uranus, I noticed that there was such an eclipse on the 30th May 1870 exactly conjunct the US uranus at 8.48. The following day (31st May) the Force Acts 1870 were passed – these Acts were a result of the aftermath of the American Civil war, with the main aim of restricting the activities of the KKK. Perhaps the impending solar eclipse conjuncting Uranus will again result in the passing of legislation with the aim of correcting the mistakes of war!?!?!

    On a lesser note, I noticed that the total lunar eclipse of july 1982 at 13.36 exactly opposite the US sun occured exactly at the height a serious recession in America. Transit saturn 15.45 and mars 15.12 were conjunct the US saturn 14.48 at the time of this eclipse.

    • Just noticed I forgot to say that the transit mars and venus at the time of JFK’s assassination were opposite the US Mars 21.22. I’d left that part blank!

    • Looks interesting Ellie. Eclipse to Mars and Uranus does sound dangerous. With the Arabic Parts, Assassinations is found using Mars, Uranus and Neptune. All these planets are triggered mid year.

      Part of Assassination = Mars + Neptune – Uranus = 04°52′ Libra for the Sibly chart.

    • To add to what you found with those transits, here are the pre-eclipses to the Sibly chart

      Lunar Eclipse 14.06 opposite US Sun 13.19
      Solar Eclipse 27.24 opposite US Pluto 27.32

  4. I’m less optimistic about Obama’s abilities given the VOC in Scorpio at inauguration. I believe we will see spectacular events quite beyond the President’s control.

    • Hi Al, I was trying to be as kind and optimistic as I could given the transits. I think you could be right about “spectacular events”, but I’m thinking they are more likely to be coming from within America (Uranus on IC). This is why I think Obama is trying to tidy things up overseas so the US doesn’t have it’s forces spread so thinly.

      • Yes, with our military caught up in three wars, I feel very vulnerable here in the US!

  5. I am glad you use the Sibley chart, Jamie. It is the one I have found the best results with, myself. The matter of which American chart to use is one of the bigger areas of contention in the astro world, it seems. Anyway, I was also thinking that this year could see more war for the U.S., for the reasons you have mentioned, as well as the solar return chart. Without precession correction, the SR has Mars on the natal Uranus/DES and Uranus on the SR DES degree. I am not in the habit of correcting for precession, though, so I was wondering how that would work with a SR chart. Would you just shift everything up three degrees (which doesn’t seem to make much sense) or do you have a chart that is three days later? The latter would produce entirely different results for especially the Moon and angles.

    I also find it intriguing that the precessed Saturn return will be on Sept. 26. That also happens to be the day of the next Elenin alignment. The American Lilith at 19 Virgo is also opposite the Elenin Lilith at 18 Pisces, whatever that means. The Sun was conjunct the U.S. Lilith on 9/11, which I find fitting for the extreme emotions generated on that day, and it will be on 9/11 (in part of the world, at least) this year that Elenin will be at perihelion.

    • Oh yes, I’ve been involved in some heated debates on forums about which chart to use for the US. I’m over it now.

      With precessing for solar return, say for the Sibly, you would add 3°17? to the Sun and end up with 16°36′ Cancer. So then would would find the date and time to do the solar return, a few days after the normal solar return. I used to do these by playing around, trial and error at Fortunately now I have the SolarFire program which adjust automatically for precession with solar return charts. Hey presto, 2011 solar return for US Sibly, precessed is July 8 2011, 11:16:35 pm Phili.

      Solar return are not my specialty, Marina does them in our client forecasts. I focus on the transits. But Mars is still on the natal Uranus DC like you got, but not on the SR DC.

      Thanks for looking into the links with Elenin, it’s opened up a whole new area of research.

  6. Jamie thanks for this, was anxiously waiting.. noticed that China delinked the Yuan from the dollar March 28 or 29.
    Not to get to “doomsday” scenarios however this very much looks like “the fall”-ing. Have a lot to read and check out. All the best.

  7. Threats of a US government shutdown in the face of unresolved stand-off between Reps and Dems over budget cuts will come to a head when 8th April deadline for interim cuts runs out – on this day we find Mercury square US Mercury, Mars square midpoint of US Venus conjunct Jupiter, Moon on the US DC, Jupiter+Sun+Mercury quincunx US Lilith (+Neptune) and Pluto continues to trine the US North Node testing out the values attached to US futures – government shutdown is means pushing the agenda out of the public eye – government will continue, behind closed doors – the Jupiter Saturn opposition continues to punish US Saturn both at home and abroad and the pressure will be on to pull back resources, no matter how the cards fall – how murky will the behind the scenes goings on be……Tea Party members continue to play the power game, but, it could benefit actually the Dems either way, so watch out for the TPs dirty tricks

    • Thanks for the updates guys, just read about this April 8 thing on a Chinese newspaper. Information seems scarce.

  8. what an awesome article.
    great job.
    I love reading all the comments guys.

    “Astrology is like any other branch of knowledge. It can be used for good or for ill, properly or improperly, by skilled and unskilled practitioners alike.”

  9. Obama running for president again in 2012.

    It was anounced in his website earlier today.

    With Mercury retrograde, is this something that he will have to reconsider later?

    • key word here is ‘launch’ Obama launch’s his campaign, echo planes grounded by cracks, funny smells and electrical probs.

      • Hi Dimos, I don’t think he will reconsider. He had really good stars for this launch. The New Moon on the 3rd was trine his Sun, and on the 4th, the day he launched, Mars was trine his Jupiter, a success transit.

        • Thank you lucy and Jamie for your reply. Perhaps launching his campaign during a Mercury retrograde cycle will indeed help him get RE-elected (also this campaign has many similarities to his former one)

          • I just added a link in the post to The Tea Party Movement Horoscope. Looks like things are getting critical with money for the government. More of the Pluto opposite Venus effect. Anyone now much about this stand off over budget cuts?

  10. I found a date and time:

    “If there is no deal by midnight Friday (April 08, Washington DC), when the current spending authorization measure expires, parts of the government will close down.”

    We could have some fun looking at this chart and guessing what may happen. I’ll add it to the bottom of the post.

  11. Thank GOD for the one true creator of all the Galaxy for allowing the rest of us to be heard!!Remarkable observations.. THOUGH….ONWARD Tea Party!! Never calculate or underestimate the outcome of a God, His People, or His planet.

  12. Over the years I have come to believe that the USA has Sagittarius Rising. I am a Sag. and an American, so… Americans are serious ‘true believers’ and we have no problem pushing our beliefs onto others. Gemini – the other option – isn’t as committed to philosophical dominance as is Sag. Most Americans are deeply religious – think how the New Age Movement caught on there and quickly turned into a lucrative form of capitalism with the biznesss of Whole Life Expos.

    Our real faith was the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Our real heroes were Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, George Washington, etc. – the Founding Fathers of what used to be a great democracy. People around the planet took hope from these men and the documents they created. Even now if you visit Monticello, Jefferson’s home in Charlottesville VA, you will feel a sacred sense of reverence and respect. This is Sag. – reverence for ideals.

    Watching my country go down has been an enormous source of heartbreak for me.
    Jefferson understood that the people could not be protected from corporations:
    “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them, will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

    We have been brainwashedby the monopoly media propaganda and narcotized by toxic food, EDSc in the earth, water & air – all in the name of profit. “The common man … has never been so confused, mystified and baffled; his most intimate conceptions of himself, of his needs, and indeed the very nature of human nature, have been subject to skilled manipulation and construction in the interests of corporate efficiency and profit.”
    – Alex Carey, Taking the Risk out of Democracy – Corporate Propaganda versus Freedom and Liberty

    As one account of Sag. says: Blindly optimistic and careless – Irresponsible and superficial – Tactless and restless. Now that careless blind optimism is taking a devastating toll.

    • Agreed – but, “Watching my country go down has been an enormous source of heartbreak for me.” I know that tarring all people with the same brush is dangerous and culturally that is a disaster, courting genocidal tendencies, even on ones own people, which seems to be the comeback here – and, that there have been many great leaders amongst ‘western’ Americans is in no doubt, so, I wonder of your sentiment is shared in the same way by the First Nations of the Americas?

    • What do you think of these interpretations for the rising star, Ras Algethi?

      Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power.

      When rising it can mean a wise and clever man, but can also indicate an individual trained in various tricks, a liar who deceives with different kinds of plots.

      • Sounds right, Jamie. I don’t know enough about the interpretations of the individual stars to converse in a meaningful way with you.
        But certainly for years now, a great deception has been going on.
        And mostly with the American people themselves – who have not understood what their taxpayer dollars were funding. Honestly. Either clueless by design or stupified by a miasma of amnesia.
        Recall after 9/11 – they said, “Why do they hate us?” They really did not know.

        This fellow John Perkins wrote an amazing book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” – about ‘the ruthlessness with which the United States uses economic manipulation and political coercion to extend our power and control over other nations.’

      • If by that you are implicating Obama then I think it fits, as he is clearly carrying this legacy forward – the MC Sabian is “…….a picture of maintained and immortalized, thus static, perfection of form. Formal perfection is now transcended through a process of CREATIVE CENTRALIZATION.” Huh… rule for the top, another for the rest…..and
        The perfect cover for such an “individual trained in various tricks, a liar who deceives with different kinds of plots.”

        • All the American presidents after WWII have been sock-puppets of the corporatocracy.
          All. Both parties. Tweedle-dum & tweedle-dee.
          Here’s a good piece on this:
          “Corporatism is different from capitalism. Corporatism is the opposite of free market capitalism. Under corporatism, the economy is a fixed game. Corporatism is actually an element of fascism in which corporations and government are in bed with one another to the point where you cannot tell them apart. In this system, corporations own both major political parties. In a system of corporatism, corporations own the politicians by heavily financing their campaigns. In return, they expect pro-corporate legislation to be introduced and put in place when the politicians who are owned by the corporations get in office. Also, under this system there is what is referred to as a “revolving door”. This means that the heads of corporations are appointed by the politicians they own to control and oversee government agencies. Corporatists also control the military industrial complex and they determine when and where the nation will go to war next so they can ultimately profit greatly from the conflict. Corporatists also order the government they own to save them or bail them out when their corporations fail, such as in 2008. In effect, the government merely becomes a tool for the corporations. The corporations fool the public by giving them the illusion that they actually have some say in political matters, when in reality, the corporations are much more powerful than both the citizens and the government.”

          • This is an excerpt from the now (hopefully) famous speech given by President Eisenhower warning Americans of the misuse of power by the military industrial complex.
            Eisenhower’s Farewell Address to the Nation/January 17, 1961
            “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”

          • nice clear comment and ‘free market capitalism’ is the perfect cover – 2nd house Pluto rx on the PoMF and Anti-Vertex, feeding the hidden powerbase by stealing other peoples wealth and their souls to make their own, opposite Mercury in the 8th sextile Neptune+Lilith, deluding messages with a subversive spirit about the inherited wealth of the nation – but, it is so easy to see what we believe we are seeing, either in a chart or ‘reality’ and good beginnings can easily be built on rotten foundations – it all has to go!

            • Yep – that 2nd house Pluto tells a tale.
              Trying to imagine transiting Pluto in Capricorn moving over that 2nd House Pluto…. around 2021 … depending on your orb thing.
              This process could drag on.
              Empires often die slowly.
              My expectation is that the USA will in fact break up. The views of the people in various parts of the country vary radically.

              I think the current obsession with end-times is a reflection of the world psyche – and the understanding we all have that we ain’t living right! Killing Gaia, our Mother. We are, in some strange self-destructive way, ready for a brutal cleansing. But history shows that revolutions bring unimagined horror along with redemption.

  13. rob: “I wonder of your sentiment is shared in the same way by the First Nations of the Americas?”
    Of course not, rob.
    I am well aware of her sins – genocide and economic imperialism … endless wars and hegemony.
    I was a child of the 60s. We tried to change things.
    So many loved ones lost, fighting for truth… too many stories.
    Years of my previous website, where I tried to make people aware of what was being perpetuated.

    I still feel that the Bill of Rights was worth something.
    All that is gone now.

    • hugely sad, but, now we must learn and release the hungry ghosts so that we can all move on – this is so true of most western ‘democracies’ – the children of the sixties seeded the collective psyche with the possibility of another way, even if that way was ill concieved at the time – it will come home and find its true form and perhaps the Bill of Rights will win out after ‘we the people’ have reclaimed it and shoved it where it hurts the government the most……

      • Yes, I agree. It’s finished.
        I’m an old lady now … chanting Sanskrit mantras all day long.
        We have to hope.

        BTW: I have Cherokee blood in me and am well aware of the Trail of Tears.

  14. rob on April 8, 2011 at 9:52 am
    “seems we are in synch here Susan….respect to your heritage!”
    Thank you, rob.
    It’s a pleasure sharing with you and others here at Darkstar.
    Perhaps it’s like Jamie is saying…
    What began in wisdom – is ending in lies.

    Jamie: …the rising star, Ras Algethi?
    Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power. When rising it can mean a wise and clever man, but can also indicate an individual trained in various tricks, a liar who deceives with different kinds of plots.

    Symptoms of the Kali Yuga – From the Sanskrit texts the Vishnu Purana and the Linga Purana:
    Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves.
    Rulers will confiscate property and use it badly. They will cease to protect the people.
    Base men who have gained a certain amount of learning (without having the virtues necessary for its use) will be esteemed as sages.
    There will be many displaced persons, wandering from one country to another.
    People will prefer to choose false ideas.

  15. Hi Jamie,

    Have you examined the Mars-Pluto square chart yet? Here it is – set for 4:41 pm April 11 Washington DC:

    Using the online Midpoint Astrology Calculator website and keying in the coordinates of

    Uranus at 01 ’44 Aries

    Saturn at 13 ’16 Libra

    we find the midpoint rests precisely (no orb) at 7 ’30 Capricorn exactly where the Pluto location is; in exact square to Mars. Quite phenomenal.

    I took the liberty of screen-printing the calculations for your convenience. Here it is:

    What is most notable is that if we compare this to the natal aspects of the US Sibly chart (the rectified chart of 5:13 pm 7/4/1776 used by Dane Ruddyar) the results are profound. Tr. Saturn is within 3 minutes of squaring the US Sun and tr. Uranus is within a 9 minute orb of the US nadir/mc axis (1 ’53 Aries-Libra).

    The significance of these aspects can’t be dismissed easily. Does this chart have the signature of a terrorist attack? That’s a little out of my expertise to say. David Wilcock seems to think that with the US government shutdown, this would be the perfect opportunity for something sinister to occur. Where his ‘insider’ information sources are is unclear….. See related article:

    • Greetings all: First time to this website. I am seeking your input on a chart for the state of California. I am using the date/time of 9/9 1850, 9:39 AM in San Jose California. This was the date of the signing of the first Constitution for the state. I would like you to take a look at May 23-August 15th of this year. The critical period I am looking at is May 24th. It looks like Waterworld to me for the state of California. Right now the state has received over 60 feet of snow up in the Sierras! Record snow. A wet earl summer rain would be devastating.

      So what do you all think?


      • Hi Christopher, this is the chart I have for California too, but I haven’t done too much research into it. I did test charts for major earthquakes in California against it and didn’t find much there.

        What’s the reason for the May 24th date? If your looking at flooding I would think maybe some connection to Neptune.

        • Chris and Jamie, where did you get the time for California? I did some research several years ago but was never able to come up with a time. So I began with the assumption that the Constitution was signed in Washington at a ceremony at noon or shortly after. I then did some rectification work and was satisfied with a 12:08 time. I later relocated it to Sacramento, the current capitol. This chart seems to respond to several of the past large earthquakes, but I didn’t have very much luck with forecasting new ones, except for a relatively small one– in the 5 range if I remember correctly– a few years ago. My main focus was on the Uranus-Pluto conjunction and transits/eclipses to it. So far, however, the biggest eclipse of all at 29 Cancer in exact square two years ago hasn’t delivered.

          Back to my question, though, I am really interested in why you both have the birth time that you do. Chris, I will take a look at the window you suggested soon when I get some more time.

    • Hi Jerry, I just installed the picture upload plugin so here is your chart. Not sure about terror attack, and the government seems to have saved itself from the shut down.

      Terror attack would be a reasonable assumption though with Mars, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto involved. In the April forecast I wrote “Explosive anger, intense arguments, ruthlessness, danger of violence.” Plus Saturn is on the fixed star Algorab which is associated with terrorism, it was conjunct the AC and Mercury when the first plane hit the twin towers, 9/11. Also, Mars square Pluto is at same time as a quarter Moon at 21 cancer.

  16. Jamie: …the rising star, Ras Algethi?
    What began in wisdom, ends in lies.

    This discussion of the fall of the American Empire got me thinking about the cycles within cycles that take place within a YUGA – meaning a period of duration based on our perception. The current Kali Yuga began in 3,606 BC. The word Kali means ‘quarrel’ or ‘conflict’ and has nothing to do with the goddess KALI (spelled differently in Sanskrit), who embodies the principles of time and death.

    The Kali Yuga is essentially an Age of Darkness, Conflict and Confusion where the negative forces, the demonic is dominant. Yet within the Kali Yuga there must always be periods that manifest the previous higher consciousness cycles in order to hold the universe together. If you look at written history (writing is a ‘symptom’ of the Kali Yuga), you find pockets of more enlightened civilizations. For example in India the golden age of the Gupta Empire (300-600 C.E.) brought about by Chandragupta, the Renaissance in Italy, and the Founding Fathers of the American Revolution. Of course, there are more. These periods are often the result of an individual or a group of dedicated individuals.

    It is as if Light coagulates and emerges in the darkness of the Kali Yuga – but only for a brief moment in time. It shines and inspires us, reminding us of who we really are and what life is like in the golden Satya Yuga, the period when we all know that we are the Oneness; in that time we don’t require writing or war. For a moment the light of Truth shines in the surrounding darkness and then is overwhelmed by corrupting forces.

    There is no agreement on the date of the end of the Kali Yuga. However the French Sanskrit scholar Alain Danielou says that the Twilight of the Kali Yuga began in 1939 with the discovery of atomic fission – something I find intriguing considering the recent Fukushima disaster. He gives 2442 as the end date. While I am still not certain about any of these dates, I am convinced that what we are seeing here is at the very least the conclusion of a cycle within the larger cycle. Illusions are being destroyed.

    • Yes Susan, there seems to be this end of a cycle theme running through a variety of myths and prophesies. I’m thinking these cycles may relate to leaps in evolution.

  17. Hi there Susan and Rob,

    Just first wanted to say that I really get something from all you regular posters on this wonderful world here on Darkstar. I started reading on this site at the same time my witchy girlfriend started borrowing books from her local library about 2012,the environment and indigenous wisom and handing them over to me to read.

    Never had heard of the fixed stars or the Lilith stuff until January this year! But now my Antares Mercury is going crazy with all this information.

    Have you read “The last hours of Ancient Sunlight” by Thom Hartmann? That’s one I’m half way through now. He describes the mind set and beliefs of our modern times by the Native American Indian word Wetiko which literally means cannibal.

    ” Created by a greed-inducing mental illness,culturally contagious,extreemly lethal and rationalised by those who twist religon and culture to justify their own dominating,conquering and stealing, this mind-set (regardless of the name of the religon or country) is what is killing Earth and her inhabitants.”

    O.k I was thinking on going back to study natural medicine but now I think I need to learn how to become less dependant on my western world luxuries.
    How to get clean drinking water,how to grow my own food and medicines,create living structures etc.

    No,I’m not talking about a bomb shelter and 50 thousand cans of baked beans!
    I want to be an active part of the changes that WILL COME and be of some practical help.

    So once again,thank you all for sharing your knowledge, insights , humour and personal stories.

    I find myself beaming love to my computer a lot when I am on Darkstar, blessings on all your endeavors guys wherever you may be!

    • Glad you found us Chris. I must admit I have been stocking up on tinned food for some reason. But then I also stocked up on candles in December 1999 🙂

    • Hi Chris – just caught up with this comment, so, apologies for the delay – yes, ‘Ancient Sunlight’ is on my bookshelves, was given it by a couple who were embarking on a new life in Canada to live in a community based on ‘intentional living’ – I remember after reading it feeling sad for humanity and being better able to understand my friends’ course of action – yeh, taking stock and assessing how well prepared for eventualities we are is a good idea – but, actually, natural medicine is going to be invaluable as well – we will need your healing skills and knowledge – if you are saying that you need to develop bushcraft skills and plant knowledge I believe you are being wise, in which case also please teach/share with others as you do – we are all on call for a little realism here…..blessings back!

  18. Chris – Thank you for your kind words.
    We all need to “learn how to become less dependant on my western world luxuries.”

    The rise of gold is one very serious indicator of what’s going on with the U$D.
    Here’s a bit from Jim Rogers – IMO maybe the only honest investor around.

    April 5, 2011
    The US Dollar Will Be Debased A Great Deal In The Future
    Everything I have told the world about gold and silver is going to continue to happen. Eventually gold will be a couple of thousand dollars an ounce, and probably much higher, as currencies become more debased, who knows how high.

    Silver will definitely reach new highs. As I have said, the US dollar is in serious trouble, and will be debased a great deal in the future, and eventually will be problematical itself. So gold and silver will be measured by the US dollar but I hope there will still be some sound currencies no matter what happens.
    – in

  19. Hi Christopher,

    Could you be specific in the astrological aspects? After the April 11th Mars-Pluto square and the April 18th Mars-Saturn opposition, I don’t see anything of significance until the August 8-9 Mars-Uranus-Pluto t square.

    • hi lucy! There are good arguments for both.
      Thanks for your insights.
      “sag. rising throws everything into 7&8th/hs’s partnerships and emotional protectiveness of group…” could describe our chronic isolationist proclivities. Americans have always seen ourselves as refugees from the Old World – there is a (very human) deep mistrust of ‘foreigners’! The common people often just didn’t want to know beyond our borders and had to be dragged via intense propaganda into both WW1 & WW2. After WW2 the policy was to creat partners with Japan, Germany, etc. – and useful tyrants in various part of the world….

      From Taking the Risk out of Democracy: Corporate Propaganda versus Freedom and Liberty by Alex Carey: In the early days of World War I, we the America people – like any intelligent group of human beings – didn’t want to go to war. So we had to be convinced, or coerced, and this was done very effectively by a campaign launched by President Woodrow Wilson, Walter Lippman (an eminent journalist), and Edward Bernays (who just happened to be the nephew of Sigmund Freud). The World War I propaganda campaign of Mr. Lippman and Mr. Bernays “produced within six months so intense an anti-German hysteria as to permanently impress American business (and Adolph Hitler, among others) with the potential of large scale propaganda to control public opinion.”

      In 1927, Harold Lasswell wrote “Propaganda Techniques in World War I” and suggested that, “familiarity with the behavior of the ruling public (meaning those who had so easily succumbed to the propaganda) has bred contempt… as a consequence, despondent democrats turned elitist, no longer trusting intelligent public opinion, and therefore should themselves determine how to make up the public mind, how to bamboozle and seduce in the name of the public good…”

      As Alex Carey points out, “propaganda has become a profession. The modern world is busy developing a corps of men who do nothing but study the ways and means of changing minds or binding minds to their convictions.”

      I also believe Obama is not a US citizen. There is too much effort to obsfucate. He’s a smooth talking sock-puppet with no backbone. More lies. Endless.

      • Obama has the asteroid Kenya conjunct his Sun. I also think it is quite obvious that he has a Taurus Moon, not Gemini like his reported birth time/place says. Mr. Mellow, private, speaks in measured tone.

          • I looked up the asteroid “Michelle” for kicks. In Obama’s chart, it is at 25 Sco. That is opposite his Moon to one degree if you relocate his “official” chart to Kenya, but a wide orb for the original Gem Moon. He also has asteroid “Lie” at 13 Leo conj. his Sun. Just on these facts alone, his claim to legitimacy is more and more dubious.

  21. what cinched it for me is divorce court saturn/libra in the 5th house of custody battles, pre-nups, 2 or more marriages is the American norm….children are mixed blessing when square snd/hs/sun, wants to accumulate wealth.

    obama has cold, ‘not from around here’ vibe

      • good point about propaganda, WW11 (cancer/3rd/hs/Rx/mercury/opp9th/hs/capricorn/pluto)….now we have American O’Keefe and Australian Assange. O’Keefe just added NPR and planned parenthood to his ‘pranked’ list, Acorn on the done side….think Assange forced Fed chair Bernache to confess where TARP money went, to foregin banks outside the US. O’Keefe is halairous.

  22. Many people have been predicting that eventually there will be a civil war in the USA and that the country will break up. It will be a terrible time of violence – but it could happen. People in the USA are not of one mind at all.
    *The CA governor Jerry Brown … believes the country hasn’t been this divided since the Civil War.
    This week Brown has been using Civil War metaphors at his public events to describe the deep divisions in California, and the entire country for that matter, preaching with the passion of a born-again that the country is dangerously polarized.
    “We are at a point of civil discord, and I would not minimize the risk to our country and to our state. It is not trivial. I’ve been around a long time, I’m a student of history, I’m a student of contemporary politics. We are facing what I would call a ‘regime crisis.’ The legitimacy of our very democratic institutions are in question,” he said.

    • divisive is optimistic. BO’s approval is 18%! now we have morbid curiosity watching the Donald Trump birth certificate drama. Imagining all kinds of not so happy endings. He is such the fraud saying Mubarack has to go, then saying gadaffi has to go…..”suspicion of others reveals thyself….” well close enough.

  23. The markets have not yet figured in the Japan quake.
    Japan is the 3rd largest economy in the world.
    Watch the price of oil – and the unending rise of gold.

    *We Have Until July at Latest Even a Caveman Can See It COLLAPSENET

    • A small observation…
      July 10 transiting (slowed-down) Uranus turns Retrograde in 4 degrees Aries – squaring (right between) the USA natal Jupiter at 5 Cancer and Venus at 3 Cancer. And to add to the burn … transiting Pluto will be in 5 Capricorn. Neptune will still be in 0 degrees of Pisces. Don’t bet the farm! But the question may be asked – will Venus, at long last, have to stop shop-till-she-drops?

      One more whacky bit … a map of what Neptune in Pisces might mean to the USA:

    • Reuters today: Japan quake’s economic impact worse than first feared
      The economic damage from Japan’s massive earthquake and tsunami last month is likely to be worse than first thought as power shortages curtail factory output and disrupt supply chains, the country’s economics minister warned on Tuesday.
      NEW YORK, April 12 (Xinhua) — The U.S. stocks fell on Tuesday as Japan lifted the alert level on its nuclear crisis, a sharp drop of oil prices pulled down energy stocks, and Alcoa Inc.’s sales report disappointed investors.

      I was attempting to look at this July 10 transit in the Japan chart, but was at a loss as there are at least two. One Feb. 11, 1889 – and another April 3, 1457. Any ideas? I’ll leave the star info to my betters.

  24. Hi Susan,

    We were discussing this over at the Starlightnews forum (Nancy’s blog). The chart of choice for Japan seems to focus on the date when Japan became a sovereign nation April 28, 1952.

    Here’s a quote from Nancy Sommer’s in her April 6th thread Battling The Plague…

    “…….The ongoing nuclear disaster at the damaged Fukishima power plant in Japan is another area where the world watches with bated breath, hoping for some kind of resolution to this horrifying nuclear seepage into the global environment. As of April 6, the day of the exact progressed Sun (4Cancer48) semisquare to progressed Pluto (19Leo48) in the Japanese chart (4/28/52; 10:30 PM; Tokyo), the leak of radioactive water has been plugged. Tensions remain high, however, with transiting Mars (4Aries48) sesquiquadrate progressed Pluto and square progressed Sun from April 6 to April 8. Although the situation will remain stressful for some time to come, it may seem somewhat under more control as these aspects pass.”

    Note: The July 10th Uranus station is within 14 minutes of exact square to the Progressed Sun as mentioned above.

    Here’s the 4/28/52 chart for quick reference…

    I couldn’t help but notice the July 1, solar eclipse at 9 ’12 Cancer will be conjoining Japan’s natal Uranus (10 ’38 Cancer)

    Here’s a good article to read:

    Japan – A Brief Event Analysis

    Incidentally, I found your April 11th and 12th posts fascinating. I took the liberty of sharing it with a number of people.

  25. Still mulling over the July info… I’m a bit rusty … Don’t bet the farm! but …
    I like this April 3, 1457 chart for Japan:
    This gives Japan Virgo Rising which I think is completely accurate – everything focused on perfection, as they say Japanse stuff is “very special”. (I did spend 3 weeks in the music biz there.)
    Sun in Aries – the warrior people, Samurai.
    Also a Uranus/Pluto conj. – electronics and nuclear power; established as institutions that serve the group in the 11th in proud Leo. (Where else but Japan do airlines have 1st class, tourist, and Group!)
    Mars/Jupiter conj. in the 10th – aggressive expansion worldwide, in business and war.
    And … their South Node is in 02 degrees of Aries – for impending combustion with the July 10 transiting (slowed-down) Uranus turns Retrograde in 4 degrees Aries.

    And for you star freaks :o)
    2 degrees Aries South Node – Difda Deneb Kaitos = self destruction, nervousness, illness, inhibitions, loss
    22 degrees Aries Sun – Baten Kaito (21-48) = Isolation, depression, accidents, emigration, shipwrecks

    • If anyone out there is contemplating risking their money on these specualtions – PLEASE DO NOT!
      I have no idea what will happen.

      Where is Arch Crawford these days? Mighty quiet it seems…

    • Re: April 3, 1457 chart for Japan:
      Japan’s Sun is in 22 degrees 08 minutes Aries.
      Uranus was around 22 Aries in 1932-33:
      *During the 1930s, the [Japanese] military established almost complete control over the government. Many political enemies were assassinated, and communists persecuted. Indoctrination and censorship in education and media were further intensified. Navy and army officers soon occupied most of the important offices, including the one of the prime minister.

      Already earlier, Japan followed the example of Western nations and forced China into unequal economical and political treaties. Furthermore, Japan’s influence over Manchuria had been steadily growing since the end of the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-05. When the Chinese Nationalists began to seriously challenge Japan’s position in Manchuria in 1931, the Kwantung Army (Japanese armed forces in Manchuria) occupied Manchuria. In the following year, “Manchukuo” was declared an independent state, controlled by the Kwantung Army through a puppet government. In the same year, the Japanese air force bombarded Shanghai in order to protect Japanese residents from anti Japanese movements.

      [On March 27] 1933, Japan withdrew from the League of Nations since she was heavily criticized for her actions in China. [Uranus was in 22 dgrees 23 minutes Aries]

  26. Hi Susan, Of course there may be a hint of poignancy to a chart 450 odd years old, but from what I have gathered over the years, albeit professional astrologers and otherwise, there is a solid case to be made for a modern updated chart that speaks to the current trends.

    Nick Campion who has done an exhaustive study on national charts (even compiled it into a definitive book called The Book of World Horoscopes) seems to prefer the date that Japan regained its independence as a sovereign nation (4/28/52). The reason being, the efficacy and vibrancy of a chart tends to fade with time after a new legally binding, national identity is established, the replacement or changing of the guard so to speak of the older outdated version.

    Nevertheless Susan, with that being said, I think you may be on to something with that July 10th Uranus station.

    • Hi Jerry,
      Thanks! Nice comments and your point about updated charts is of course right.
      I just liked the old one – it seemed more authentic to me.
      And the only reason to look at the Japanese one is to see if in fact, as the vid-clip suggested, it will be the Japanese economy which topples the USA. We shall see. Astrological predictions are often so much clearer in hindsight.

      • Jerry – In Japan’s April 28, 1952 chart (according to my ephemeris/Hieratic Publ.) – the only thing that sticks out close to the July 10th Uranus station in 4 degrees of Aries is Japan’s natal:
        Mercury 11 Aries – Saturn 9 Libra – Uranus 10 Cancer

  27. nice leo VOC moon for sun/leo obama, economic winning the future speech @ 1:00pm. today can y say fog machine?

  28. Hi Susan,

    The connection has to do with an exact progressed Pluto semi-square progressed Sun. Uranus is stationary in square to those aspects.

    Here’s the excerpt from Nancy Sommer’s once again…

    “…….As of April 6, the day of the exact progressed Sun (4Cancer48) semisquare to progressed Pluto (19Leo48) in the Japanese chart (4/28/52; 10:30 PM; Tokyo), the leak of radioactive water has been plugged. Tensions remain high, however, with transiting Mars (4Aries48) sesquiquadrate progressed Pluto and square progressed Sun from April 6 to April 8. Although the situation will remain stressful for some time to come, it may seem somewhat under more control as these aspects pass.”

    Note: The July 10th Uranus station is within 14 minutes of exact square to the Progressed Sun as mentioned above.

      • lucy … what does this mean – “its plugged” ?
        Your intriguing cryptic remarks have at last eluded me!

        • who will get close enough to verify? plugging the radio active leak (jerry 4/14) …reminiscient of PB and the gulf oil disaster, everyone’s focus directed towards plugging and….and the heat’s on. maybe fukushima is. do hope

  29. Gold is heading for 2000… today over 1475…
    Any experienced investor knows that these moves happen in advance – meaning the smart money and traders will have figured this out before it actually happens. As the old Wall Street adage goes …”Buy on the rumor; sell on the news.”

    So, my feeling is that the Japan-related crash will occur before the ‘July 10th Uranus station is within 14 minutes of exact square to the Progressed Sun.’

    “The pressure for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates to put a damper on inflation is growing strong. This week, Reuters reported that Bill Gross’s PIMCO Total Return Fund, the largest mutual fund in the world, had reduced its US Treasury holdings to zero, and then followed the sale with a short-position, signaling to the market that holding US debt is not only risky, but also an entry into an asset class that provides a negative return when adjusted for inflation.”

    *20 Signs That A Horrific Global Food Crisis Is Coming

    In case you haven’t noticed, the world is on the verge of a horrific global food crisis. At some point, this crisis will affect you and your family. It may not be today, and it may not be tomorrow, but it is going to happen. Crazy weather and horrifying natural disasters have played havoc with agricultural production in many areas of the globe over the past couple of years. Meanwhile, the price of oil has begun to skyrocket. The entire global economy is predicated on the ability to use massive amounts of inexpensive oil to cheaply produce food and other goods and transport them over vast distances. Without cheap oil the whole game changes. Topsoil is being depleted at a staggering rate and key aquifers all over the world are being drained at an alarming pace. Global food prices are already at an all-time high and they continue to move up aggressively. So what is going to happen to our world when hundreds of millions more people cannot afford to feed themselves?

    Most Americans are so accustomed to supermarkets that are absolutely packed to the gills with massive amounts of really inexpensive food that they cannot even imagine that life could be any other way. Unfortunately, that era is ending.

    There are all kinds of indications that we are now entering a time when there will not be nearly enough food for everyone in the world. As competition for food supplies increases, food prices are going to go up. In fact, at some point they are going to go way up.

    Let’s look at some of the key reasons why an increasing number of people believe that a massive food crisis is on the horizon.

    The following are 20 signs that a horrific global food crisis is coming….

    There are countless related stories – for example:
    Australia, US, EU stoke fears over parched wheat
    US farm officials have warned of a “critical” need for rain for winter wheat, while fears are growing for Australia’s main grain state, as dryness emerges as an increasing threat to hopes for a jump in world wheat production.

    The state of Western Australia has, on the eve of the state’s winter grains planting season, warned of “emerging evidence” that rainfall for the next three months “will be lower than normal” over the south of the state.

    The caution cuts hopes of an end to drought in a state which has typically produced roughly 40% of Australian wheat, but where soil moisture levels are, in the central agricultural belt, all-but zero, and exceed average levels only in a small area to the north of the state.

    “The Central and Great Southern areas are very dry,” the state said.

      Palm oil 55%
      Soybeans 36%
      Beef 30%
      Rice -2%

    A drought stretching from the Louisiana Gulf coast to Colorado is contributing to wildfires and killing crops.

    Oklahoma was drier in the four months following Thanksgiving than it has been in any similar period since 1921. That’s saying a lot in the state known for the 1930s Dust Bowl, when drought and high winds generated severe dust storms that stripped the land of its topsoil.

    This link talks about faultlines in the USA. Read that FEMA is beginning preparations for major catastrophy in American Midwest..seems there has been a large number of animals dying…(You tube)

    Tought I would drop this here because something like the New Madrid faultline rupture would change American History and politics. Beside being a grave stone.

    As in where’s the money to pay for the help needed? Answer: the only place that has the money that would be needed is the military. The only way to have it to spend would be to bring all the service people home…from all 150 locations.

    However way it goes, we are witnessing major transformations concerning human life in every aspect.

    It is less stressful if you have a connection to the Divine within.

    • Jim – Dutchsinse has been warning of this for some time and with swarming EQs in the last week either side if New Madrid faultline on an ESE bearing some as high as 6.5 and many in the 5s or 6s New Madrid has had just one – look at how US citizens are being encouraged to address this – here is what Ducthsinse posted this morning :

  34. ” S&P has downgraded its outlook from stable to negative, increasing the likelihood that the rating could be cut within the next two years. ”

    This happened today. It really reminds me of the beginning of the crisis here in Greece. Hope it will not worsen that much, as a downgrade in the US economy will have global repercussions.

    Is there an astrologer’s point of view in the role of those rating agencies? Any new forecasts gor Greece and the Eurozone? Eurosceptic Right Wing Extremists party nearly tripled their seats in the parliament of Finland.

    This full moon brought many unwelcome changes. I hope that things will straighten up when Mercury stations direct..

    This cardinal crisis is far from over.

    • Hi Dimos, I haven’t looked into any astrology of the ratings agencies. The shift to the right in some Eurozone countries sounds similar to the late 1920’s though which might be related to Uranus square Pluto.

      As for mercury turning direct, I’m looking forward to Mercury at 24 Aries when it leaves the retrograde zone on May 11 because it will be with Venus, Mars and Jupiter. In the Greece Horoscope, Chiron is at 24 Aries opposite Uranus, so that may be a good sign of things straightening out. Let’s hope so!

      • lets hope – I’m predicting (!) a big EQ in the Aegean that day – using Greek event chart, transits first – Ceres conjunct Jupiter, Saturn square Saturn, Pluto square Pluto, Neptune square vertex, Mars quinx vertex, , Sedna+Sun quinx Uranus, Hades conjunct antivertex square Mars – ouch!

It’s a dog chasing tail through the heavens. 2stars orbiting each other that’s why it fills the garden w/ good things, and makes us lazily search for a good place to cool off and make happy noise.

    • Very cool stuff, Jamie.
      I love that you are posting graphs, radiation dispersion maps….!

    • Jamie thanks for the NICE graph. The bottom black line looks like a weak heart beat.
      Read about 2 years ago about US Advisors in central Asia and the discomfort the PRC has had with that. Just what would this “concern” be about? US certainly at no time could maintain any thing resembling a military presence (threat).. so what is this about? Try the unmined vast mineral resources that Russia was never able to develop.. Mongolia upto Siberia that has a growing Chinese merchant presence and the Central Government is looking at how to develop the area using its very large unemployment
      population from the inland of the country.
      All that pristine air- the incredible Siberia? now headed for development? With no USA there is zero hindrance to Chinese expansion not in the Middle East or anywhere else. Russian focus has been in the European region..
      Jamie it is so hard to keep comments limited to the immediate point of discussion. The New Madrid faultline major shake would have a very real immediate devastating effect on the US. And just maybe the one major crisis that would be trouble for the whole world- least to China. (Skipping Chinese expansion and the aggressive nature of “Marxist” ideology).
      My brothers got in touch with me a few years back and we found ourselves agreeing with the economic pressures from the throughly incorrect Keynesian economics having a dividing effect on the US- into regions. Brings you back to the very beginning , to the colonies and reliving the dynamic of merging the various regions into a “whole” – Federal Democratic Republic. Who even knows of this aspect these days? Certainly hasn’t been taught in schools in decades.
      The fall of empires does bring a certain amount of grief. Overspending which is spending what you haven’t yet earned is a kick-in-the-butt reality that keeps most people disciplined- like it or else.
      When we talk of stars and planets we speak about representations of these energies. “Light” or “dark” or a mixture ( Satvic, Rajas or Tamasic).
      The energies will find their way into all relationships and all aspects in greater or lesser degrees of influence.. but they are present.
      So New Madrid connects to economic reality and ability, politics, natrural disasters, and a shift in Global Power from West to East, and on.
      Meanwhile I turned to astrology to help me in my self-understanding-self-inquiry aspect of the yoga teachings and end up in one of my major aspects of wanting to be part of changing the world.
      Somehow everything blends… keep the faith.

  39. Excerpts of an intelligent assessment of the end of the American Empire:
    Sleepwalking into the Imperial Dark 
    What It Feels Like When a Superpower Runs Off the Tracks 
    By Tom Engelhardt

    This can’t end well.

    But then, how often do empires end well, really?  They live vampirically by feeding off others until, sooner or later, they begin to feed on themselves, to suck their own blood, to hollow themselves out.  Sooner or later, they find themselves, as in our case, economically stressed and militarily extended in wars they can’t afford to win or lose.

    … The United States is, of course, an imperial power, however much we might prefer not to utter the word.  We still have our globe-spanning array of semi-client states; our military continues to garrison much of the planet; and we are waging war abroad more continuously than at any time in memory.  Yet who doesn’t sense that the sun is now setting on us?

    … Can there be any question that something big is happening here, even if we don’t quite know what it is because, unlike the peoples of past empires, we never took pride in or even were able to think of ourselves as imperial?  And if you were indeed in denial that you lived in the belly of a great imperial power, if like most Americans you managed to ignore the fact that we were pouring our treasure into the military or setting up bases in countries that few could have found on a map, then you would naturally experience the empire going down as if through a glass darkly.

    … even as our imperial wars in the oil heartlands of the planet went desperately wrong, they allowed us not to think about empire or, until the economy melted down in 2008, decline.  They allowed us to focus our fears on “them,” not us.  They ensured that, like the other great imperial power of the Cold War era, when things began to spiral out of control we would indeed sleepwalk right into the imperial darkness.

    … I do know one thing: this can’t end well.

  40. Well… here we go…the beginning of the US Dollar’s end as world reserve currency.

    *It’s Official: China Will Be Dumping US Dollars
    Phoenix Capital Research on 04/20/2011
    In case you missed it, earlier this week China announced that its foreign currency reserves are excessive and that they need to return to “reasonable” levels.

    In politician speak, this is a clear, “we are sick of the US Dollar and will be taking steps to lower our holdings.” Remember, the US Dollar is China’s largest single holding. And China has already begun dumping Treasuries (US Debt).

    This comes on the heels of China deciding (along with Russia) to trade in their own currencies, NOT the US Dollar. Not to mention the numerous warnings Chinese politicians have been issuing to the US over the last 24 months.
    In simple terms, China is done playing nice and is now actively moving out of US Dollar denominated assets. This is the beginning of the US Dollar’s end as world reserve currency.
    The dimwits in Washington don’t understand this because their advisors are all Wall Street stooges who don’t think debt or deficits matter.

  41. Ron Paul has been the voice of truth in the corporatocracy.
    No one seems to know his time of birth, but here is his chart:

    He will never be elected – TPTB (the powers that be) would never allow anyone to become president who could not be manipulated by the coporatocracy/plutocracy. He will find more support this year than ever before and raise hopes in the hearts of many … but an honest independent man plainly has no chance. We Americans have been “conditioned” to prefer liars and fools like Sarah Palin & the Donald.

    Congressman Ron Paul is the leading advocate for freedom in our nation’s capital. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Paul tirelessly works for limited, constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies. He is known among his congressional colleagues and his constituents for his consistent voting record. Dr. Paul never votes for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution.In the words of former Treasury Secretary William Simon, Dr. Paul is the “one exception to the Gang of 535? on Capitol Hill.

    Ron Paul was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine, before proudly serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. He and his wife Carol moved to Texas in 1968, where he began his medical practice in Brazoria County. As a specialist in obstetrics/gynecology, Dr. Paul has delivered more than 4,000 babies. He and Carol, who reside in Lake Jackson, Texas, are the proud parents of five children and have 17 grandchildren.

    While serving in Congress during the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dr. Paul’s limited-government ideals were not popular in Washington. In 1976, he was one of only four Republican congressmen to endorse Ronald Reagan for president.

    During that time, Congressman Paul served on the House Banking committee, where he was a strong advocate for sound monetary policy and an outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve’s inflationary measures. He was an unwavering advocate of pro-life and pro-family values. Dr. Paul consistently voted to lower or abolish federal taxes, spending and regulation, and used his House seat to actively promote the return of government to its proper constitutional levels. In 1984, he voluntarily relinquished his House seat and returned to his medical practice.

    Dr. Paul returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the 14th congressional district of Texas. He presently serves on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. He continues to advocate a dramatic reduction in the size of the federal government and a return to constitutional principles.

    Congressman Paul’s consistent voting record prompted one of his congressional colleagues to say, “Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.” Another colleague observed, “There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles. Ron Paul is one of those few.”

    Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record:
    He has never voted to raise taxes.
    He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
    He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
    He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
    He has never taken a government-paid junket.
    He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.
    He voted against the Patriot Act.
    He voted against regulating the Internet.
    He voted against the Iraq war.
    He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
    He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

    • I met Ron Paul at a Libertarian convention in the 1970s and from that I would say he has Virgo Rising.
      Not much help… but …

  42. It seems to me that there are signiciant changes taking place in the US these days with ursurpation of power through “Executive Decree”. While seeming unstoippable because of the lack of values in the Republican Party toward what kind of consolidation is OB taking the US? There is a map of the US that was displayed the other day on Fox of the US being divided into Regions for the purpose of FEMA and Homeland Security and other bodies of the Federal (Central) government having direct control in case of an “Emergency” situation which by law can be declared by the President- Executive Branch. I don’t think we would have to wait until August or September before that “Emergency” to be implemented. Just for a catastropic event. There is a tendency to think of a “terrorist” attack or an earthquake but a major/emergency event could be something as simple a hyperinflation, food shortages or popular uprisings over gas prices. As people stand to loose their jobs over having to travel long distances but can no longer afford the price of gas.
    Ron Paul is an incredible person and there are others but less known.

  43. Today May 3 2011 was listening to Fox News talking about the “hit” on Osama Bin Laden and saying that President Barak Obama went against the best advice of his security team and ordered the operation to go ahead is without any doubt saying that he will be reelected in the next election. The agenda he implements is clearly towards a more centralized even “soviet” style of government but this decision can not be over taken by any prospective candidates.
    So given the unrest that truly does exist and the resistance to the implementation of his program for America within the population I’d say that this is a very combustible situation and need to look at the possibilities for a more heightened, organized resistance to this program. The dollar is not to to be recovered and the extremity of this circumstance will breed extreme resistance. Has to be reflected in the political chart but also in the dollar chart.
    But be assured Barack Obama after this event is unbeatable no matter what else he is doing.
    God bless us and keep us.

    • Hi Jim – politically you may be right – however, ‘Politics’ took leave of its senses a long time ago – what are we seeing?…….the more people use Nature as a weapon, and this is exactly what is being done with nuclear power, the use of HAARP to control weather (and the breaching of the levy) for example, the bigger a backlash we will see…..’God’ is taking a back seat it seems, while, in the meantime, disempowering the populace amidst increasing chaos is the agenda of the hubrists – the degree of open daylight dis-information is astonishing – while I don’t go for conspiracy nutball theories the evidence is mounting, and I think Nature will have the last say in the matter of Obama’s little propogandist ruse – Bin Laden ‘died’ long ago and the ‘war on terror’ is concerned less with individuals than with idealogies now, of which the western governments are major perpetrators and propogandists of terror themselves – the ability to spread chaos and upturn the status quo is out of their hands unless they too apply it, but, yes the extremes are becoming more visible – whether an individual buys into it all or not may soon be irrelevant

      by the way did you get to look at the chart(s) for the New Madrid EQs yet? The times are freely available on wiki….

  44. I’d agree that this makes him look very good for the 2012 election. Working on the death chart for bin Laden at the moment. Settling on a time of about 1:35 am which gives the same AC as Barack Obama.

  45. Mississippi River EPIC FLOOD & tributaries flowing backwards

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Mississippi River continues to rise, so much so that its tributaries are starting to flow backwards. At Tom Lee Park, preps for Memphis in May continue knowing that the worst is still yet to come.
    It’s a site not often seen; the Wolf River and Nonconnah Creek are flowing backwards. The swelling river cannot take on much more water.

    Gene Rench with the National Weather Service said all eyes are on the Mississippi. The tributaries flowing backwards are a big problem for the adjacent communities.

    “Right now the Mississippi river is in the process of going through what we call an epic flood, meaning it’s more than historic, it’s more than a 100 year flood, it’s more like a 500 year flood,” he said. “We could flood many homes, businesses, close down factories, people could drown.”

    U.S. to blow third hole in levee as floods worsen
    May 4, 2011
    CHICAGO (Reuters) – Government engineers will blow up a third section of a Mississippi River levee on Thursday to manage flooding, as a wall of water roared down the nation’s largest river system, threatening towns and cities all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers blew up a two-mile section of the Birds Point levee Monday night, inundating about 130,000 acres of Missouri farmland in a desperate attempt to ease flooding in towns in Illinois and Kentucky.

  46. *Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, & murders itself.

    Of the founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson especially recognized the dangers that central banking posed to the American experiment:

    The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin [gold and silver coins]. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.

    Gold and Silver Storm The Fed
    Darryl Robert Schoon
    Posted May 5, 2011

    All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation. -John Adams (1735-1826), American President

    America’s founding fathers would not be surprised at the dire state of the nation they created in1776. America was then an experiment. No similar form of government had ever been attempted; and even at its birth the founding fathers had doubts as to whether the American experiment would succeed.

    Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. – John Adams (1735-1826), American President

    The once great nation of America is now a goat rodeo where the electorate is both confused and ignorant yet stubbornly believes itself otherwise. Adroitly ruled by corporate and banking elites whose deadly threat remains unrecognized, America today is bereft of leadership and options, a shadow of the nation intended by its founders.

  47. *Dead, Missing, Jailed – BP Whistle Blowers

    Of the 12 high profile people in question, 9 are mysteriously dead, 1 nearly died in a brutal assassination attempt, 1 is imprisoned under questionable charges, and another has simply disappeared. You can watch a video tutorial of the cases while you read the segments. Below that, you can follow the links to all the cases.

    Not all of the people listed are directly related to the disaster, however, they are high profile truth tellers with different areas of expertise. Statistically speaking, it is unlikely that this many experts and activists would suddenly wind up dead within a year of the disaster. It is suspected that those who were indirectly connected with the event, may have had more knowledge or pull than originally thought.

    • Great interview, some commonsense on US TV.

      The key point I thought were the debasing of the US dollar = Pluto opposite Venus transit this year.

      The other point was the US overextending itself militarily, politically, financially = Pluto opposite Jupiter transit next year.

  48. The People vs. Goldman SachsA Senate committee has laid out the evidence. Now the Justice Department should bring criminal charges
    By MATT TAIBBI /MAY 11, 2011 9:30 AM ET

    They weren’t murderers or anything; they had merely stolen more money than most people can rationally conceive of, from their own customers, in a few blinks of an eye. But then they went one step further. They came to Washington, took an oath before Congress, and lied about it.

    Thanks to an extraordinary investigative effort by a Senate subcommittee that unilaterally decided to take up the burden the criminal justice system has repeatedly refused to shoulder, we now know exactly what Goldman Sachs executives like Lloyd Blankfein and Daniel Sparks lied about. We know exactly how they and other top Goldman executives, including David Viniar and Thomas Montag, defrauded their clients. America has been waiting for a case to bring against Wall Street. Here it is, and the evidence has been gift-wrapped and left at the doorstep of federal prosecutors, evidence that doesn’t leave much doubt: Goldman Sachs should stand trial.

    • Susan, I was reading some Alice Bailey/Dk stuff last night – apparently a brother hood of darkness at time of writing says there were 6 leaders on the West and 6 in the East.
      We all focus on the west here… but what of the East?
      Mao tse Tung? WHo are/were the others?? I know we’re all fed up with the banks etc and the trail they leave in history but I was watching Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion on Friday and thought – well China is stuffing every one now. It has run roughshod over Tibet (hopefully the “upside is more dissemination of spirituality – I don’t think the Dl is on a dark agenda but I could be wrong..)
      WHile the banks manipulate the funds, the Chinese are flooding the world with material gods it doesn’t need and the level of desire created is ruinous. But they don’t care.
      The cycle of credit is obscene.
      China has practically bought Zimbabwe, is pillaging her resources, running roads through animal habitat, wrecking the country… when people complain the Chinese businesses there can hide behind Mugabe.
      This is not conspiracy – its REAL. ANd very visible.
      But as long as average Joe can buy goods he/she can conveniently forget where they came from and how. Its easy to get Icked into a frenzy but forget what is very tangible and in our faces, not to mention our shops.
      So who might the 6 in the East be?? or have been given DK/AB wrote in the 30s – not to say they meant it was exactly at that time.
      Those in the `Eastern Hemisphere are well hidden from us on the whole. Apart form Mao and KIm Jong Il who else?

      • UQW: “This is not conspiracy – its REAL. And very visible.”
        Good observations, lady.
        Tyrants don’t require conspiracies – they are only necessary in a decaying democracy.
        My joke here is… I’m practicing my English/Brit accent (I lived there for 2 years), so when the Chinese invade NZ they won’t think I’m an American! I hope this remains nothing more than my daffy humor…
        And “the brotherhood of darkness” is thriving these days.

  49. In a book I have on Nostradamus…published 1999..there is the following quatrain:
    “A treasure placed in a temple by Western citizens,
    Withdrawn within to a secret hiding place,
    The hungry serfs will throw the temple open,
    recaptured and ravished a horrible prey in the middle”

    The author writes:
    “Some commentators have suggested that this quatrain predicts a major economic crisis, which will prompt improverished Americans to raid the Federal Gold Reserve. Given that, in an economy that has totally collapsed, food would be more valuable than gold, I have my doubts about this interpretation.”

    Be interesting to see if USA raids the Federal Gold Reserve….especially since gold is increasing in value.

    • Oh boy I have to get back to writing on mundane astrology. Just two more readings and I’m not overdue anymore.

      • But I don’t know how they have interpreted Nostradamus Jamie…especially the line, “recaptured and ravished a horrible prey in the middle”…sends shivers up my spine.

        Somalia is sooooo bad….wish people in places like Lybia/Somalia etc would email and tell us the truth of what is going on….though not even sure we can trust the internet.

  50. And I worry about the people of Somalia…are they dying thru starvation ?…or are they being exterminated????…like other Muslims…can’t trust the media…Whistleblowers here in Melbourne have been imprisoned & their lives ruined & they can’t get media attention.


    • Are the Somalis being exterminated like other Muslims? Are you for real? What planet are you people from?

      • Joseph…”we” have invaded Iraq…”we’ have invaded Afganistan…an illegal invasion, against international law, against human rights, etc …we are in process of invading Lybia etc, etc….heaps of babies are being born deformed in Iraq, born with 2 heads etc,…SOOOOO much going on.

        What is happening now…happened in the 2nd World War…propaganda against Jews/gypsies etc etc…
        And currently there is a HEAP of propaganda against Muslims.

        This isn’t “War”…it is “Murder”

        Now tell me…your views…for example:

        1. Do you think it was right that Osama Bin Laden was killed and and his body thrown into the sea…i.e without legal trial…without a proper buriel???

        2. Do you think it was right that David Hicks (Aussie) be kept by the Americans, without proper trial within a reasonable time and also that he was tortured?

        And don’t answer when you are drunk…you just come across as an ignoramos.
        Kind Regards Barb

  53. I apologize Jamie. Just got back from having a few beers and when I clicked on my iPad Darkstar was still open on the screen and as I scrolled down I got caught off guard by the liberal insanity bomb someone set off on this comment thread. I’m not a belligerent poster as a general rule. As soon as I realized I was getting caught up I tried to delete my comments, but I can’t figure out how.

  54. maybe the US bought the building, couldn’t reconsile nodes, in reverse now, So we OD like Amy winehouse.

I get a mouse smell, or is it stale beer. senate majority leader the world awaits word!!!

We are are facing a world shortage of food….but the scientists/politicians/ media have been keeping it quiet.

  58. Haloween October 31 has Sun 9 Scorpio, which is the Ascendant of the USA 9 Scorpio.

  59. I have updated this post with transits to the USA Horoscope from the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest day in United States history,:

    Solar Eclipse conjunct Venus 0°00′
    Quarter Moon conjunct Mars 0°27′
    Neptune conjunct IC 0°26′
    Uranus conjunct Mars 1°55′
    Mercury conjunct Saturn 0°34′
    Sun conjunct Neptune 0°38′
    Moon conjunct Jupiter 0°51′
    Ascendant conjunct Lilith 0°11′


    A neutron star discovered residing at 13Can40. Teetering on the edge of mathematical existence. The astrologer mentions the importance of the ecliptic longitude, how Saturn stations direct on Sept 18, 2019, at 13Cap43. And the radix position of the USA national chart Sun position 13Can19.

    Personally I have Mars at 13Cap50, and feeling that Saturn transit! So perhaps, this is partly why Valles Marineris, Birkeland currents, and well established but not main stream cosmic theories, are getting a thorough (personal) vetting at this time. Aided by the impulse from American Declaration of Independence!

    • “The psychological rule says that when an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate….That is to say, when the individual remains undivided and does not become conscious of his inner contradictions the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposite halves.” C. G. Jung, 1959, CW 9, par 126.

      I read this quote from the website of the above link, as it pertains to Pluto sq Aries activation in the Refinery attack in Saudi Sept 14.

      The commodity is oil, and one doesn’t wander far from this Internal Contradiction, that he is a user of this oil through his energy and lifestyle choices. I would add though, that there is more activation impulse with the Saturn transit opposite Sun in the American Sibly chart.

      I’ve been looking at Internal Contradictions in myself quite a bit lately, as it relates to, surprisingly, a birth order among siblings. I am a middle child. We are, as middle kids, by definition walking contradictions, 5th wheels…So it was a bit of a shock to see the manifestation occur in a refinery explosion that sent oil on a price jolting rampage.

  64. Near the town of Sharpsburg, Lee deployed his available forces behind Antietam Creek along a low ridge, starting on September 15. While it was an effective defensive position, it was not an impregnable one. The terrain provided excellent cover for infantrymen, with rail and stone fences, outcroppings of limestone, and little hollows and swales. The creek to their front was only a minor barrier, ranging from 60 to 100 feet (18–30 m) in width, and was fordable in places and crossed by three stone bridges each a mile (1.5 km) apart. It was also a precarious position because the Confederate rear was blocked by the Potomac River and only a single crossing point, Boteler’s Ford at Shepherdstown, was nearby should retreat be necessary. (The ford at Williamsport, Maryland, was 10 miles (16 km) northwest from Sharpsburg and had been used by Jackson in his march to Harpers Ferry. The disposition of Union forces during the battle made it impractical to consider retreating in that direction.) And on September 15, the force under Lee’s immediate command consisted of no more than 18,000 men, only a third the size of the Federal army.[22]
    The first two Union divisions arrived on the afternoon of September 15 and the bulk of the remainder of the army late that evening. Although an immediate Union attack on the morning of September 16 would have had an overwhelming advantage in numbers, McClellan’s trademark caution and his belief that Lee had as many as 100,000 men at Sharpsburg caused him to delay his attack for a day.[23] This gave the Confederates more time to prepare defensive positions and allowed Longstreet’s corps to arrive from Hagerstown and Jackson’s corps, minus A.P. Hill’s division, to arrive from Harpers Ferry. Jackson defended the left (northern) flank, anchored on the Potomac, Longstreet the right (southern) flank, anchored on the Antietam, a line that was about 4 miles (6 km) long. (As the battle progressed and Lee shifted units, these corps boundaries overlapped considerably.)[24]

    Sabian symbol.

    How are you going with your ambitions, hopes and dreams in life? Are you ready to step up to the plate? Do you feel you have some kind of ‘fight’ on your hands? Are you prepared for the consequences if you back right down and don’t go for your objectives?
    My sense of this Symbol is that we don’t have to knock out our opponents, it’s more about stepping up and taking on life – warts and all.
    This Symbol shows that there may be a temptation to take on issues, even to fight, but it needs to be with dignity and regulation. There are rules to follow and often others will be end up being the judge of the final outcome. Make sure you possess the skills and training to defend what you believe. Remember that sometimes you need to back off if you’re not winning a contest. Question: are you more on the attack or the defense?
