The Naked Emperor

It is almost as if we are living through a real life reenactment of the story The Emperor Has No Clothes. Until the release of the Bob Woodward book, Fear, coupled with the Anonymous op-ed in the New York Times, many, especially on the right, have pretended that Donald Trump is doing reasonable things and is working for the greater good of the country, albeit from a right-wing slant. The rest of us have clearly seen the naked emperor, with his depravity, his compulsive and delusional grandiosity, his paranoia, and his pervasive moral turpitude. Now that both Anonymous and the well-respected Woodward have declared that even those in the administration have recognized the jaw-dropping, distressing reality of the deeply impaired Trump, it is as if the floodgates have opened. Just as in the story when the little boy questioned why the emperor has no clothes, it is now much harder to go along with Trump’s delusional and self-absorbed reality.

If we look at the entire period from mid-June through today, we see the national outrage over the separation of children from their parents at the border, the Michael Cohen guilty plea that included Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator, the Manifort conviction and now possible plea deal, and, currently, the troubling revelations of the Woodward book and the Anonymous article.  During this period, despite relatively good economic news (for now), Trump’s approval ratings have gone down significantly and consistently in several polls.

Astrologically, there are two noteworthy configurations that correspond to these events. The first is the transit of Saturn square to Trump’s Neptune (5Libra51) which covered the first weeks of the separation policy coming to light  (6/14 to 6/27). This aspect will return on November 1 through November 11. It suggests the pain of reality (Saturn) crashing against the shores of Trump’s delusions (Neptune).  It is easy to imagine that Trump thought his cruel policies at the border would be happily embraced by America.  Clearly, he was upset at the tsunami of criticism and disapproval. We can only hope that the final crossing of this aspect around the time of the midterms suggests another huge Trumpian disappointment after an unrealistic expectation of a “red wave”.  I am concerned that the optimistic and success-inspiring Jupiter will square his Ascendant (29Leo55) from November 3 to November 8, but the more dour and depressing transit from Saturn continues through the 11th, so perhaps there are some very close elections that end badly for the GOP after a recount or the absentee ballots arrive. We will find out in November.

The second configuration of significance is the transit of Saturn opposite the US Venus (3Cancer06), while simultaneously also opposite the Sun in the Trump/US composite chart (3Cancer08).  For the US, this transit suggests a time of sorrow and loss. The first crossing of this long station in the summer of 2018 was from July 22 to August 10, during which some of the worst wildfires in history raged in California. The second crossing is from September 6 to October 2.  We are now in the early days of this final transit of Saturn to US Venus, as Hurricane Florence is building to overwhelm the southeast coast of the US. There is also a protracted Mars/Uranus square from September 15 to 19, which seems likely to be the period of greatest damage of the Hurricane, although the continuation of the Saturn transit through October 2nd suggests a great deal of stress and loss felt through that time, either from Florence or other, as yet, unspecified events.

The simultaneous transit of Saturn to the US/Trump chart Sun (July 22 through August 10 and September 6 to October 4) brings with it tension between the president and the country. Already, we have seen the fallout from the separation policy, and more recently, his poll numbers going down, as well as the revelations of the Woodward book and the Anonymous article. It may be that Trump may not do well with his handling of the disaster experienced in the wake of Hurricane Florence, and suffer from political difficulties as a result. In any event, the Saturn transit to the Trump/US chart suggests problems for the Trump/US relationship over the next three weeks.

Responses

Thank you, Starlight, for taking the time to analyze all the data and deliver another beautifully written and thoroughly insightful post. You’ve been on to Trump all along and now corroboration is coming from many sources, ultimately from Mueller himself. I hope your husband’s pain is soon a thing of the past. Sending him what positive vibrations I have to give. All the best to you both.

Thank you, Starlight, for continuing to write so well in these difficult times for your country and your family. I recently saw the Ken Burns documentary on The Roosevelts on Netflix and the 1976 television series Eleanor and Franklin on YouTube to remember what great Presidents were.

Thank you Nancy for alwYs being here and helping us all see. Hoping with everyday David is getting better and stronger.

This is truly wonderful, made me cry. Music is so very important to focus us and help keep us strong.
https://pitchfork.com/news/tom-waits-first-new-song-in-2-years-is-a-marc-ribot-collaboration-listen/

Thanks for this, Nancy. You always deliver.

From here on out our mantra should be – IMPEACH KAVANAUGH!

Good to read your words Nancy, especially during these trying times. In one way or another, transiting Saturn “crashing against the shores” of “Trump’s delusions” is pressing down on all of us.

During the 7 years between November, 1982 and November, 1989, Saturn started new cycles with the three outer planets – Pluto in ’82, Uranus in 88, and Neptune in ’89.

Now Saturn is trine Uranus, is quintile Neptune and is nearing a new conjunction with Pluto, activating all of those cycles. In each cycle transiting Chiron played a strategic role too:

* In the Saturn-Pluto conjunction (in Libra) chart they were sextile Neptune (water) and that chart’s Chiron in Taurus (2 degrees from where Sedna [water] is now) completed a Yod, the part that has to adjust.

* In the Saturn-Uranus (in Sagittarius) conjunction Chiron in Cancer was opposite Neptune (water) in Capricorn.

* In the Saturn-Neptune in Capricorn conjunction chart, Chiron (retrograde) was on one of the Aries (World) Points, 1+ Cancer. Transiting Chiron is presently square that point.

Also, in the one-time-only Saturn-Pluto conjunction, Mars and the South Node were at 5+ Capricorn, where Saturn will be when it squares Trump’s natal Neptune (water) Nov 1-11, as you noted.

I don’t think we can overestimate just how much all the turmoil we all have experienced in this country of late is the result of Saturn’s interaction with the outer planets. Little did we realize – back in the 80’s – where this would all lead. Call it growing pains on a humongous scale.

There are many who have and are calling out the naked emperor. You among them. Thank you for your generosity.

No, Barb. We didn’t realize where we were headed, but certainly there were plenty of clues. Militarization after 9-11, unchecked greed followed by the meltdown of banks. Since then, the world’s troubles have been compounding. The election? of this Trumperor threw the door open on the malefic times. (It reminds me of a repetitive dream I had as a child. Going down the stairs to the dirt cellar, knowing the witch hiding behind the coal furnace was going to come after me.)

My heart goes out to this beautiful world, and her residents, and especially to those directly impacted by this storm.

It will get better.

Starlight,

Hurricane Florence is brewing up to be the “The Storm of a Lifetime” as it heads for the Carolina coast in the USA. Reckoned to be the worst storm for at least 25 years in the region it has led to nearly 2 million people being evacuated with fears of catastrophic impacts, from damaging winds to flash flooding to widespread power outages.

Thank you, everyone. David is slowly healing and also sends his thanks.

Not to put too fine a point on it Karen, but I did not start seeing the connections (let alone the dots waiting to be connected) until after Trump was declared the new President.

Oh sure, I already loved studying the cycle charts, but up until then I saw them mostly as individual projects only. My grasp of “the Big Picture” was very, very loose. Those 3 Saturn cycles (with Pluto, Uranus and Neptune) were a law unto themselves, or so I thought.

Now I see the importance of the 3 Uranus-Pluto conjunctions in Virgo (in the ’60’s) which were always sextile Neptune in Scorpio. Even then the outer planets were working together.

It would take 27 more years for transiting Uranus to catch up with transiting Neptune in Capricorn in 1993, and during that time (between Uranus conjunct Pluto and Uranus conjunct Neptune), trans. Saturn would start a new cycle with Pluto (’82), Uranus (’88), and Neptune (’89).

Now, 25 years later, trans. Pluto is in the neighborhood of where those 3 Uranus-Neptune conjunctions took place (18-19 Cap) and Saturn will soon begin a new series of cycles with these 3 outer planets, starting with Pluto, then Neptune in 2025, then Uranus in 2032.

It was 63 years ago when Pluto and Uranus started their cycle in Virgo, and Neptune was sextile them in Scorpio. Together they formed a Yod to US natal Chiron in Aries which opposes US natal Juno in Libra.

It was 25 years ago when Neptune and Uranus began their cycle in Capricorn and they were T-square the US natal Chiron opposite the US natal Juno in Libra.

These two outer planet cycles have focused on this particular flawed aspect in the US natal chart and have filtered their influence onto transiting Saturn via their conjunctions with him. It has sometimes been a tortured process during the last 63 years but we are at a climactic moment now.

Trans, Pluto has reached the same point in Capricorn where Neptune and Uranus met and were T-square US Chiron opposite US Vesta. Trans. Saturn will get there too next April.

This US opposition between Chiron and Juno covers such problems as racial inequality, foreigner intolerance, women’s inequality and other forms of discrimination. I believe it might be linked to gun violence too. Trump has brought it all out in the open.

I also believe Hurricane Florence will play a role in this healing attempt (transiting Heracles [Hercules] is conjunct US Chiron right now) but it is just a step in the process.

It was 53 years since Pluto-Uranus conjunctions, not 63. duh.

OMG, cat 5. We must focus on weakening it in our prayers and visualizations.

Florence is down to a Cat 2! This will lesson wind and surge but the slow movement and immense rain is the worry.

Fantastic post – thank you, Nancy!

Also, as a ray of hope here, maybe we are blessed to have someone like Trump as President, instead of having a truly savvy dictator who’d make mincemeat of our currently weak, democratic institutions?

Trump, in short-order, might well be helping us to reinvigorate our democratic processes, and forestall greater, future tyrannies.

Starlight,
Good to hear David is on the mend. We need to continue sending our healing thoughts and prayers to him and to your family.

Also, your latest essay is as per normal very much on point and quite well written. But of course, that’s not unusual for you. Many Thanks for your cogent thoughts!

Dean W.,
“Also, as a ray of hope here, maybe we are blessed to have someone like Trump as President, instead of having a truly savvy dictator who’d make mincemeat of our currently weak, democratic institutions?”

“Trump, in short-order, might well be helping us to reinvigorate our democratic processes, and forestall greater, future tyrannies.”

YES! I’ve been of that opinion for quite some time now. Trump is a curse, but is also a blessing. Let us hope Dems don’t mess up after taking back power. We need a number of important reforms but there is always a temptation of going too far too fast, thereby leaving the voters behind and risking a backlash.

Starlight,
“The simultaneous transit of Saturn to the US/Trump chart Sun (July 22 through August 10 and September 6 to October 4) brings with it tension between the president and the country…”

“It may be that Trump may not do well with his handling of the disaster experienced in the wake of Hurricane Florence, and suffer from political difficulties as a result.”

Reports on MSNBC are that Trump transferred very large sums from FEMA & the Coast Guard to ICE and the border folks who have separated children from their parents.

Money for saving lives taken away to make children into orphans won’t go down well with the Am. public, especially if we see large loss of life due to hurricane and/or flooding.

Diane Feinstein has a letter about BK which might derail his nomination. More at the Intercept. I am not a huge fan of Greenwald but this may be interesting. Violetta just did a reading and said she did not think he would be confirmed.

RE: US natal Chiron 20+ Aries opposite US natal Juno 20+ Libra

The reason I wrote that I think this opposition might also refer to the issue of gun violence (or any violence) is that the Sabian Symbol (Rudhyer version) for 20+ Aries is of a pugilist (boxer) fighting.

If Aries is the sign of the Individual and Chiron is associated with wounding, then one interpretation of Chiron in the US natal chart could be of a wounded individual fighting back.

Right now transiting Pluto has been square US natal Chiron in Aries and US natal Juno in Libra, pushing for a resolution to this struggle.

One ray of hope has been the US PROGRESSED Mercury at 20+ Aquarius that trines the US natal Juno (20+ Libra) and sextiles the US natal Chiron (20+ Aries).

This progressed Mercury has been at 20+ Aquarius for several years already, and will remain there for several more years due to it’s station direct (in March 1777 where the US natal chart has progressed to). It can be seen manifesting as the Me Too Movement and Black Lives Matter among other things.

When the present Jupiter-Saturn cycle (about societal issues) began in 2000, Jupiter and Saturn at 22+ Taurus were square Uranus at 20+ Aquarius (where US PROGRESSED Mercury is). This cycle will end in December, 2020.

I would expect the next two years to produce intensified activity on the part of progressive Americans to beef up the Supreme Court with liberal judges.

Expect to also see new laws introduced to protect society from wounded individuals (Chiron) who fight back with guns, knives, belts or fists against “equals” (Juno) perceived as being less-than-equal (Juno) in the wounded individual’s eyes.

Remember that Uranus symbolizes breakthroughs and the Uranus (+ US PROGRESSED Mercury) in the present Jupiter-Saturn cycle still has two years to impact society. Get out and vote Democrats!
🙂

Bob !!!:

From the Washington Post Article:

“The move was expected — senators routinely delay committee business for one week, which is allowed under the panel’s rules.

The Judiciary Committee voted 11 to 10 on Thursday to hold the vote at 1:45 p.m. on Sept. 20, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is expected to set full Senate votes on Kavanaugh’s confirmation for the final week of September.”

BRIGHT RED UNDERLINE: September 20, 2018.

Hurricane Florence may have dropped in strength but as a FEMA adjacent former DHS official Moira Whelan pointed out on Rachel Maddow last night, 88% of all hurricane related fatalities are from not the wind damage but *water* dangers, such as flash flooding and storm surges.

Florence will most certainly impact many people in areas that the storm itself will not have directly hit.

Keep these citizens of the Southeast in your prayer baskets and alert those you know of in this area of the risks. Many in the lower Appalachians do not have reliable internet access or the means to leave their surroundings, or are of frail health and can not leave the care network they are plugged into.

“We are now in the early days of this final transit of Saturn to US Venus, as Hurricane Florence is building to overwhelm the southeast coast of the US. There is also a protracted Mars/Uranus square from September 15 to 19….Thank you Nancy for your very pointed post.

It good to read some plain words in these days of so much controversy and misleading news everywhere. But is just terrible that so many people are likely to be badly affected by the storm. Also, thanks Barbk for your comments as well. You mentioned Sedna and I think it is good to remember that Sedna is an ‘underwater’ creature with a drastic story.

Like all the worried folks on the east coast, while I am safe and far away myself, I really don’t want to see this situation play out. Trump will screw up as usual (like Puerto Rico). Along with that, I think the stars also portend a significant financial hit on the entire country. A particularly large hurricane can’t help but affect the insurance industry, which is a staple for individual investors, but primarily an investment vehicle for institutional investors.

I haven’t looked at the astrology myself, but the potential for “damage” to the insurance industry from a big storm with a lot of water damage has to be big. The impact could be long lasting because not much has been done to prepare for such events in advance and because administrations are not ‘believing’ in climate change so why do anything? Not only the living people are involved (we will get endless ‘human interest stories’, but will this change anything in business, politics, infrastructure or healthcare?

This storm (or another one, coming soon somewhere, no doubt) may become a turning point for many things, not the least of which might be Kavanaugh. It is likely that his confirmation is now being delayed (at least in part) because of the optics for the administration. The coming effects of the storm will be headlines for days, if not weeks, and it would look bad for the administration to ‘slip’ Kavanaugh into place when the attention is elsewhere just before the election. Wow, what more could happen?

‘President Donald Trump will NOT answer federal investigators’ questions, in writing or in person, about whether he tried to block the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election’.
‘It signals the Trump’s lawyers are committed to protecting the president from answering questions about actions the president took in office’

On twitter, I saw that Ronan Farrow has begun to investigate the story behind the letter Senator Feinstein received. The letter alleges sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh while he was in high school. The alleged victim described in the letter does not want to be another Anita Hill and requests confidentiality. Feinstein turned the letter over to the FBI.

No one has ever accused Dianne Feinstein of being a hothead. She’s my Senator and she’s not really one to scream Fire. In fact, I’ve often been critical of her for playing it too calm. This might be serious.
Regardless, there’s a lifetime appointment at stake here. Taking time to check things out, and for that matter, allow Senate to review all relevant documents…..shouldn’t be a big deal.
McConnell put Obama’s nominee on hold for months purely for political reasons!
Now he wants to rush a shady nominee through!

The Virgo New Moon 4+ days ago was conjunct the Uranus-Pluto conjunction(s) in 1965-66 and although the transiting Uranus square Pluto aspects a few years back are no longer effective, trans. Uranus and Pluto WERE in an aspect called a bi-septile (102+ degrees apart) in Sunday’s Virgo New Moon chart.

Astrologer Robert Wilkinson (Aquarius Papers) holds that the septile family of aspects present a “fork in the road of destiny”. That possibility alone is a good enough reason to check out the day’s news re: Hurricane Florence, and the Feinstein letter about Kavanaugh, and the plea deal by Manafort.

Frankly I’m in overwhelm mode, but knowing that all this is part of a plan presented to us more than 50 years ago (when Uranus and Pluto came together) and we are now in a New Moon cycle that began conjunct that Uranus-Pluto conjunction degree (that took place more than 50 years ago) – and that the Virgo New Moon last Sunday was also opposite transiting Neptune. .

well, it gives me some comfort knowing that there is good reason (fork in the road of destiny) to not bury myself under the covers for too long. These are testing times and we will need courage of course, but we must also pace ourselves in order to cope with all that is happening – all at once.

Re: The Boston gas explosions

Although it’s not being conjectured in any of the news media as yet (forensic evidence hasn’t been fully established), due to the strange nature of the circumstances there is a strong suspicion it could be Russian hacker related.

One such intuitive on the internet puts the blame squarely on Putin (a not so subtle message to Trump that he is not delivering on his promises). If this event turns out to be a terrorist attack, we might well be in for an intense diplomatic row with Russia and can expect Trump’s clandestine cooperation with Putin to be be more closely examined.

This is not some far fetched conspiracy theory; Russia’s electronic hacking capabilities on our vital infrastructure facilities have been known for quite some time now……..

Transiting transPluto at 2+ Virgo, having to do with developing wholeness and integration, is trine trans. Uranus (unexpected, breakthrough) in Taurus and trans. Saturn (the real and practical world) in Capricorn right now. On Sept. 20, at 1:45 PM, when the vote on Judge Kavanaugh is set to take place, this grand trine will still be in effect.

The Sun and Mercury at 27+ Virgo at that time will be conjunct Kavanaugh’s natal Mars at 26+ Virgo. The Sun and Mercury (+ Kavanaugh Mars) will square the brilliant insight stemming from the Galactic Center (the Sun behind the Sun) at 27+ Sagittarius.

The Galactic Center will be in the 1st house at 1:45 PM on Sept. 20 (in DC), and almost everyone will be acutely aware (conscious) of its directives.

Still, trans. Sun and Mercury (+ Kavanaugh Mars) in Virgo (square the GC) will be in a grand trine with transiting Sedna (under water) in Taurus and US natal Pluto (entrenched power) in Capricorn creating a force (of seeming desperation) to be reckoned with.

It would appear (to me) that the Galactic Center + the grand trine between transiting transPluto-Uranus-Saturn would triumph over the trans. Sun + Mercury + Kavanaugh Mars trine trans. Sedna trine US Pluto.

However, we need to consider that transiting Venus (values) at 6+ Scorpio will be T-square the US North Node (6+ Leo) and the US South Node + US Pholus (small cause, big effect) at 6+ Aquarius. The Moon will have passed over the US South Node earlier that morning (and trans. Mars will conjunct it a few days later).

This means that a decision (re: values) must be made between the US taking the path forward (North Node) or continuing in the old pattern(s) that no longer serve(s) growth. Becoming whole and integrated is at stake.

“This means that a decision (re: values) must be made between the US taking the path forward (North Node) or continuing in the old pattern(s) that no longer serve(s) growth. Becoming whole and integrated is at stake.”

BarbK:

Let us hope that decision made must not protect Kavanaugh — a predator.

Given what we know SO FAR from his record in the Ken Starr investigation and in the White House working on enhanced interrogation memos, I add high-functioning sociopathic predator.

The good old, sweet-faced boy image he projects is anything but. That hits it on the bullseye as to why I felt creeped out about him.

You gotta admire Mueller; his focus, determination and tenacity has served us well, and now he’s bagged Manafort.

Last Sunday’s New Moon at 17+ Virgo was conjunct Mueller’s Mars-Chiron conjunction at 16+ Virgo. This New Moon also was conjunct Michael Cohen’s natal Pluto (17+ Virgo) and Uranus (18+ Virgo).

It confirms that the conjunctions of Uranus and Pluto in 1965-66 still have teeth and that the present bi-septile between trans. Pluto and Uranus isn’t as minor as we would have thought. Fork in the road of destiny indeed.

Transiting Chiron is conjunct Manafort’s natal Mercury (0+ Aries) and because Chiron is sextile trans. Mars (0+ Aquarius) they both quincunx Manafort’s natal Saturn (0+ Virgo which is very near transiting transPluto at 2+ Virgo) creating a Yod and putting Manafort’s Saturn (reality) in the position of having to adjust to uncomfortable circumstances.

Keep the faith.

He creeps me out too Fe.

Excellent article about climate change in today’s WP:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/we-brought-florence-upon-ourselves/2018/09/12/eaf376ca-b6b2-11e8-b79f-f6e31e555258_story.html?utm_term=.79efd62c3b3e

In November 1936, in a speech to the British House of Commons, Winston Churchill made a bone-chilling — yet unpopular at the time — pronouncement on the growing threat of Nazi Germany that could easily be applied today to climate change:

“Owing to past neglect, in the face of the plainest warnings, we have now entered upon a period of danger. …. The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to its close. In its place we are entering a period of consequences. …. We cannot avoid this period; we are in it now.”

Me three: I get a really creepy feeling from Kavenaugh.

Add me to the list of feeling the Kavanaugh creep factor. His expressions remind me of an arrogant overindulged and protected frat rat.

Kavanaugh clerked for a US Court of Appeals judge named Kozinski, who stepped down recently after numerous former clerks came forward to talk about his inappropriate sexual behavior and sexual harassment of them. One of them is a writer I don’t know well, but have run into at conferences and heard speak. She challenged one part of Kavanaugh’s committee testimony about never hearing comments of a sexual nature from Kozinski or witnessing sexual harassment. https://twitter.com/courtneymilan/status/1040062485498191873

She wrote a long piece that appeared in the Washington Post or the Boston Globe — can’t remember which — about her experiences clerking for Kozinski.

Thanks Nancy for the Climate Change story (opinion); noting the quote from Winston Churchill, in part, “we cannot avoid this [danger] period [of consequences], we are in it now”.

Florence will make us look at trans. Saturn opposite US natal Venus (what we most value) in a broader way than we would have before she arrived. The erosion of the coastline alone is a loss (of value) that affects us all.

Thanks ja for Linda G’s latest reading; she too thinks it might have been Jared that wrote the op-ed. Relieved she sees Trump walking away from the job, rather than waiting to be impeached.

Apparently, the natural gas company in that part of MA was upgrading their gas lines & increasing the pressure.

barbk, Linda G said the op-ed piece was written by someone in the military, which could only have been Mattis or Kelly.

I did my best to be objective about Kavanaugh. But his non-verbal communication and cues were far more revealing and starkly inconsistent with his spoken answers. We will suffer a great deal if he gets on that bench.

Jerry,

Major Kavanaugh “ewwwww” factor here as well, but look who nominated him! That’s a dead giveaway.

From Politico: “The conservative Judicial Crisis Network spent millions of dollars on ads featuring women and minorities backing Kavanaugh, and during his Senate confirmation hearings former female clerks were seated directly behind him — in a shot captured by television cameras and broadcast across the country.” According to Brennan Center, they spent 3 million in TV ads on Kavanaugh and 10 million on Gorsuch. Also, the donors to the Judicial Crisis Network are not disclosed. How about if they spent a tenth of that money on Puerto Rico or cancer or heart disease.

kiwi,

Thank you for sharing the “nugget.” Again, anything is possible in the present state of chaos at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

I am totally spit-balling here, but I saw a clip of Kelly-Ann Conway denying that she had anything to do with being “the deep throat” to the Woodward tome. For just a flash, I saw utter deception in her facial expression and vocal tone. One can realistically say, “What doesn’t she lie about” as she is such the rabid defender of L’ Enfant Terrible’s idiotic tweets, words and actions. But on this particular day (sometime last week) my gut said, “She’s at the very least complicit” in the leak. We must remember that tRump’s cray-cray has come between she and her husband.

Anyway, just spit-balling.

In the meantime, I am committed to visualizing safety and restoration for the victims of Hurricane Florence and Typhoon Manghut.

Mangkhut pretty fast moving – now near hong kong

Kiwi,
The Texas State Board of Education consists of 15 members. The chairman, David Bradley is an insurance salesman from my home town who DOES NOT have a BS or BA college education. He is an arrogant #X*%:# about whom the college faculty at most of our universities consistently complain.

Despite his lack of education (only a HS diploma) he believes he knows what courses college students should take. He and his minions have gradually removed humanities requirements from the college curriculum. We therefore each year graduate more and more highly trained but very uneducated students with BS & BA degrees.

Bradley and the rest of the board are universally hated by most all college instructors in Texas. Believing education will turn young minds toward liberal ideas, they are doing their best to diminish our once proud, high quality colleges and universities.

Am I surprised Hillary and Helen Keller are removed from the history books? Nope. It’s what Bradley & Co. do.

OH! and by the way, the Moses they say is the father of Texas education IS NOT Moses Austin of actual Texas history, but THE Moses of the Torah. Makes you wonder if these fools believe Moses received the Ten Commandments NOT somewhere in the middle east, but maybe in the Davis mountains of West Texas.

The situation in North Carolina is getting worse, now with inland flooding. I-95 is closed in much of the state, and the NC Department of Transportation issued a jaw-dropping warning to motorists to stay out of North Carolina, to detour through Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia rather than try to make it on I-95.

Worst of rivers cresting and inland flooding is still days away. It’s really bad around Fayetteville and along the Cape Fear River, which was at 15 feet Saturday and expected to crest at 62 feet on Tuesday.

(I’m fine. Storm crept along at 2 mph most of the day and is just getting to me, but we’re only expected 35 mph sustained winds and maybe 5 inches of rain.)

Teresa Hill,
Where are you?
I’m visualizing you and your family high and dry and well in my prayers for your safety.

Be safe Teresa. Hugs

On the other side of the world Hong Kong is getting slammed right now. Twitter reports coming in saying strongest seen in a lifetime. High rises moving so much it feels like being on a boat. 7-12mtr waves.

Now that Paul Manafort has entered a plea deal with the Special Counsel, one would expect Trump’s team is aware that the legal maneuvering is all but over. Manafort was at June 2016 New York meeting and can implicate Trump as a co-conspirator in Russian meddling as well as other vital keys to the investigation. It is safe to assume, the demise of the Trump presidency is now inevitable. Will Trump try to fire Mueller within the next couple of weeks as a last resort? There is reason to suspect that that might be a possibility……….

Fox News Host Sean Hannity Says Donald Trump Will Fire Robert Mueller After Hurricane Florence

Newsweek
September 12, 2018

Fox News and talk radio show host Sean Hannity is a known ally and supporter of President Donald Trump, often using his various media platforms to offer praise or even policy advice for the president.

When talking to a listener who called into his radio show Tuesday afternoon, Hannity said he expects the president to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and end the investigation into Russian election interference “sooner rather than later,” potentially after Hurricane Florence passes. Given Hannity and Trump reportedly talk so regularly that some White House staffers, according to The Washington Post, have dubbed the conservative media personality the president’s unofficial chief of staff, it remains to be seen whether Hannity is offering the president his personal advice or if he’s simply expressing wishful thinking.

The September 25th Full Moon at 1 ’59 Aries will oppose Mueller’s natal Neptune t squared by tr. Saturn (2 ’16 Libra). The US Sibly chart’s natal Nadir-MC (2 ’08 Aries-Libra) is in the line of fire.

BUT, there is a plan in place……..

In Case Of Mueller Firing, Break Glass: Democrats prep an emergency plan Congressional action and protest rallies are among the contingencies being planned if Trump tries to shut down the Russia probe.

NBC News
Aug 22, 2018

WASHINGTON — It would start within minutes of special counsel Robert Mueller being fired — a torrent of activity ricocheting through the halls of Congress and over television airwaves, including nearly a thousand protests being prepped from the Virgin Islands to Alaska. Democrats have drafted a wide-ranging contingency plan should Mueller be fired or President Donald Trump take other steps to quash the Russia investigation, like firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or pardoning key witnesses.

Of top concern in the first 24 hours of such a move would be preventing Mueller’s documents from being destroyed and his team disbanded, according to interviews with nearly a dozen lawmakers, congressional aides, Democratic operatives and attorneys involved in the planning.

Typo/ Read instead: “The September 25th Full Moon at 1 ’59 Aries will oppose Mueller’s natal Neptune (2 ’16 Libra) t squared by tr. Saturn (2 ’49 CAPRICORN).

Eliseo,

Love your posts, but have an observation regarding David Bradley on the Texas Board of Edu. You’ve been around this world enough to know that it isn’t one’s education, either the lack of or the abundance of that determine a person’s prejudices. David Bradley is sorely deficit a healthy emotional quotient. (So for that matter is Trump, and those he allies himself with.) Those with an EQ deficit are often bullies no matter their level of education.

Very interesting and very plausible Jerry. The Sept. 24 Full Moon chart’s Sun in Libra not only conjuncts the US natal chart’s MC and Mueller’s natal Neptune, it also conjuncts Trump’s natal Siva (catabolic process that precedes insight; crisis of death or regeneration) also at 1+ Libra.

Trump’s purpose in life could be summed up as being the trigger that started the process of revamping the US Constitution and awakening the country to its true values.

This Aries Full Moon chart’s Mercury conjuncts Trump’s natal Neptune, both at 5+ Libra which trines the same chart’s Black Moon Lilith (BML) at 5+ Aquarius (+ the South Node + Mars). This BML is one degree away from the US natal chart’s South Node (release what no longer serves growth) and natal Pholus (small cause – big effect) both at 6+ Aquarius.

Since the Democrats et al. seem to be prepared for Trump’s last mad uproar (Trump’s natal Ophelia [madness] and his natal House [House of Rep’s which he will lose], both conjunct the US natal Moon, all at 27+ Aquarius), this Aries Full Moon could be the last hurrah for the Trumpster before they haul him away to the Funny Farm.

We live interesting if not downright remarkably dramatic times don’t we?

Jerry,

The prevailing sense among most of the most reliable news sources here in the States is that 45 is toast. With Manafort agreeing to fully cooperating with the special investigation in exchange for not spending the rest of his life in prison , it is most likely that a trove of particularly damning information will be coming forth that will shed light upon all of the bad actors and bad deeds involved in the Trump campaign and Russian involvement in perverting our elections. This feels like Watergate on meth and steroids.

Anything is possible, but Trump firing Mueller seems quite unlikely.

The more troubling and disturbing likelihood is that Brett Kavanaugh will win the votes he needs to be on the SCOTUS bench. That is what horrifies me.

” There’s no end to the Cabinet members and generals whom Trump is eager to insult in front of their colleagues, or to fire by tweet. A coarse and feckless viciousness is the operating procedure of his White House, and the poison spreads to everyone. Only snakes and sycophants survive.”

Karen,
Good point about EQ! Bradley IS a bully. But very much like his hero in the Oval office, I suspect he believes he is brighter than he really is. He and the B of E consistently overrule the best recommendations of our best educators, all evidently for ideological reasons. I suppose they believe they are “saving” students from being poisoned mentally, brainwashed by instructors like myself.

Today transiting Mercury made its last sextile to transiting Jupiter, an important signpost, before beginning their new cycle on Oct. 29th just days before the midterm elections.

When they started their present cycle last October 18th at 1 Scorpio 41, the Sun (25+ Libra) was sextile Pholus (small cause – big effect) at 26+
Sagittarius (conjunct the Galactic Center at 27+ Sagittarius). Whenever the Galactic Center is involved in an aspect it means a directive is coming from a higher source than that of mortals.

This sextile between Sun and Pholus at the Jupiter Mercury conjunction last year formed a Yod to Sedna at 26+ Taurus. At this present time of unprecedented flooding around the world, transiting Sedna at 27+ Taurus retrograde is now making that adjustment required of her position in the Yod she was in with Sun and Pholus in the 2017 Mercury-Jupiter cycle chart.

The Sun at 25+ Libra in that Mercury-Jupiter conjunction chart (Oct 18, 2017) was also opposite Uranus (breakthrough) at 26+ Aries and the US natal Pluto (27+ Cap) was T-square them. Remember this fact.

Today’s sextile between transiting Jupiter and Mercury forms a Yod to US Chiron (wounding draws attn. to something) in Aries. This Yod becomes a Boomerang by adding in the US Juno in Libra.

Transiting Ceres in the October 24 Full Moon chart conjuncts US natal Juno in Libra. This same Full Moon conjuncts Uranus and opposes the Sun in Scorpio that conjuncts the US natal chart’s Hades (what we can’t bear to look at) as well as where the Jupiter-Mercury cycle started last October. Remember this too.

I know, too much information, but this Hurricane Florence (related to trans. Sedna making “adjustments” due to the Yod she made with Sun and Pholus [and most importantly, the Galactic Center] in the soon-to-end Mercury-Jupiter cycle) is – I truly believe – symbolic of the Trump presidency going under water (see cover of TIME Sept. 3 – 10 issue).

This sextile Mercury and Jupiter made today that makes a Yod with the US natal Chiron which then becomes a Boomerang because US Chiron opposes US Juno (which trans. Ceres will conjunct at the Oct.24 Full Moon that opposes US Hades), . .

. . is just days before their new cycle starts (which is days before the election). It is desperately trying to tell us something. Something to do with Ceres issues perhaps, like children being kidnapped or distraught mothers or food shortages perhaps.

Or maybe it’s troubled voters who are victims of Florence damage and are still waiting for help from FEMA.

The next Mercury-Jupiter cycle continues in the same vein in that it starts opposite transiting Sedna; the news never sleeps.

Hi,

I really appreciate all the prayers and concern, but I’m truly fine. we’re in the northwest corner of South Carolina, about halfway between Atlanta and Charlotte, so I’m as far from the coast as I can be and still be in South Carolina.

The storm slowed down to the point where what’s left of the eye is still not here. It’s close. Sometime later this afternoon, it will be here. But our winds aren’t bad at all, and they keep lowering our rain totals to next to nothing.

The really bad flooding is from Charlotte over to the coast of NC, down toward Columbia, SC, and from there over to the SC coast.

Big parts of I-95 are closed in NC and some in SC. Rivers will be cresting through this week.

At the risk of sounding heretical, I looked at Bill Herbst’s latest writings on the US chart, and I have to disagree. He minimizes the importance of transiting Uranus square US Pluto. This aspect has been present at every American constitutional crisis. It was last seen during Watergate. When Uranus opposed US Pluto in the fifties, there was Brown v. Board of Education and the beginning of the modern civil rights movement. When Uranus squared US Pluto in the Thirties, there was the confrontation between the New Deal and the Supreme Court. Every time, this involved a crisis for US major institutions, particularly governments both federal and state, the Presidency or SCOTUS.

The Uranus-Pluto aspect is better understood if we also take into account the opposition between Uranus in the US Constitution chart at 27 Cancer and Pluto in the US Declaration of Independence chart at 27 Capricorn. Transiting Uranus really only brings out this opposition every generation in surprising ways. The tension between Constitution Uranus and US Pluto means the Constitution’s radical potential will always be in conflict with powerful institutions symbolized by the US Pluto in the second house (if we use the Sagittarius Ascendant, as do most astrologers).

The coming Uranus station at 28 Aries in January will be a major turning point. But the issue is of course more complicated this time around by the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in 2020 and the US Pluto return in 2023, which will oppose Constitution Uranus. This probably means the constitutional crisis will continue, even increase, after Drumpf’s departure, possibly by ongoing tension between a Democratic Administration and the Supreme Court as well as demands for constitutional reform.

Bil Herbst appears to miss this entirely. He is right however in saying things will come to a head in 2019 after an uneasy 2018.

Let me be clear, it is the Oct. 24 Full Moon (not today’s Mercury-Jupiter sextile) that is just days before the new Jupiter-Mercury cycle start that is only days before the election. So sorry, I got too excited about this whole Jupiter-Mercury-Sedna thing!

Admirable Andre, thank you.

The Kavanaugh accuser is a child clinical psychologist, and she passed a lie detector test. No word on whether she will testify or be permitted to do so. See Washington Post article.

“This sextile Mercury and Jupiter made today that makes a Yod with the US natal Chiron which then becomes a Boomerang because US Chiron opposes US Juno (which trans. Ceres will conjunct at the Oct. 24 Full Moon that opposes US Hades) , , ,”

enter Christine Blasey Ford, stage left, accusing Kavanaugh of attempted rape

Trans Ceres exact conjunction to US Juno (less than equal) is this Friday the 21st, the day after the Kavanaugh confirmation (if it still happens).

Here’s clearly more on Kavanaugh’s accuser:
‘California professor, writer of confidential Brett Kavanaugh letter, speaks out about her allegation of sexual assault’

https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/california-professor-writer-of-confidential-brett-kavanaugh-letter-speaks-out-about-her-allegation-of-sexual-assault/2018/09/16/46982194-b846-11e8-94eb-3bd52dfe917b_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.a3805d63ccff

Uh, wrong again. Trans. Ceres (as well as trans. Zeus “controlled & directed forces) is conjunct US Juno exactly on October 21 not this week.

Even so, Kavanaugh confirmation might still be delayed.

Has anyone come across this story before? OMG – If true, prison system reform is a must!! This seems almost worse than the days of 18th & 19th century punishment for petty theft.

“In 49 states, inmates are charged for the costs of their own incarceration.”
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/opinion-prison-strike-labor-criminal-justice_us_5b9bf1a1e4b013b0977a7d74

“These debts can make it even harder for a returning citizen to rebuild their life after incarceration, because in 46 states, failure to repay them is an offense punishable by yet more incarceration. A Georgia man named Thomas Barrett pleaded guilty to shoplifting a $2 can of beer and was fined $200 and sentenced to probation, supposedly so he could avoid jail. That was a futile hope, since he was eventually incarcerated after he failed to pay over $1,000 in fees attached to that $200 fine. In Rhode Island from 2005 through 2007, failure to pay court debt was the most common reason that individuals were incarcerated, which means that, in a state that routinely spends around $200 million on corrections every year, the most common reason for incarcerating people there was something other than crime. ”

“In 20 states where probation and parole are privatized and profit-driven, the problem is worse. Additional supervision fees explode the amount of money that a probationer owes, and the likelihood of violation ? and reincarceration ? skyrockets. In Florida, probationers can be charged a 40 percent collections surcharge on their debts to the state. ”
Because these private companies are exempt from freedom of information requests, we don’t know the true value of the for-profit corrections industry”

Lots of flooding around me in NC, but mostly in the counties east of where I live. Still raining! But I am safe, dry and waiting out the storm reading up on the storm in Washington. Oh my!

He’s been making appearances more often lately. I’m thinking John Kerry is going to take a crack at 2020.

Glad you’re both safe & dry, Ripley & Teresa. I think there was someone else here in that area? So much damage and heartache in N. Carolina!

John Kerry running again? I’m not sure he’d want to go through that again but “they” wouldn’t dare call him a “flip-flopper” this time! I take that back. Yes they would. They are REALLY good at twisting reality.

tRump’s January 2020 nasties are preceded by that Saturn-Pluto duo paying a visit to pence’s secondary progressed Sun/Saturn midpoint at 22°35′ Libra and 203°53′ of right ascension.

Pluto squares the midpoint on December 20th in right ascension and on January 6th in longitude.

Saturn makes the square on January 6th in right ascension and on January 10th in longitude.

The following is prompted by a DU thread. Could be another woman setting a precedent.

Maybe a double header of removals so that the Speaker of the House (Hillary Clinton) becomes President.

http://clerk.house.gov/member_info/memberfaq.aspx

“Although the Constitution does not require the Speaker to be a Member of the House, all Speakers have been Members.”

“If the Senate was serious, they would also subpoena the other person alledged to be in the room: Mark Judge. He might not be willing to commit perjury. Recent very public events have shown that lying to investigaters can be quite painful. They would also slow down the process.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/16/us/politics/brett-kavanaugh-christine-blasey-ford-sexual-assault.html

will, I believe John Kerry is promoting his new book and that’s why he’s on all the talk/news shows.

Jeff Flake, a retiring Republican senator on the Judiciary committee, has called for a delay on the vote out of judiciary committee, so the accusation against Kavanaugh can be heard before the whole senate can vote. If Flake maintains this position, I believe he would break the one vote majority the Republicans have on the judiciary committee.

http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/406939-grassley-working-to-set-up-calls-with-kavanaugh-ford-before-vote

Oh my…I wonder what will come of this?

More on John Kerry-

” Kerry was dead center (representing the greatest of all American values: reason, logic, fact, conscience, patriotism, bravery, integrity, humility, honesty). I suspect he will be remembered in history as one of our truly great politicians.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/12/magazine/john-kerry-says-the-world-is-worried-about-america.html

Sharon- Dr. Ford, who accused Kavanaugh, does not have to respond to Grassley. She can refer this request to her attorney. If she wishes to testify, it is only fair that they set up a time for her before the entire committee, not just with the man who traumatized her. They are treating this like a business deal gone bad.

Two Republican Senators, Flake and Corker, now want to delay the vote on Kavanaugh. Is this unravelling? Watch the Mars-Uranus square on Tuesday.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/09/16/kavanaugh-allegation-anonymous-republicans-825855

I suspect the me-too movement has given Ford the courage she will need to get thru this. We must send her strength.

Yes , it would be so fitting, that if true, which i assume it is , but don’t KNOW, that a woman take down this man, that the me too movement and the divine feminine bring this appalling nomination to a halt.

But it must be genuine and true else will hurt women and the movement even more. I somehow feel it is though and that this may be a turning point, i hope and pray that this may be so…

Sharon K,

So true – they would it again.

barbk,

Yes, its true, he is promoting a book. I felt that the book promo might be a preamble to a run.

Wow…now this is a Shocker!

Perhaps Beto O’Rourke will correct that.

I think you are right Diana, the “divine feminine” seems alive and well in the Libra Equinox chart that is effective from Sept. 22 through Dec. 22. It starts with a Moon (6+ Pisces) trine Venus (7+ Scorpio and both trine the US natal Jupiter (5+ Cancer).

The US Solar Return last July also echoes US Jupiter’s importance this year with its Saturn at 5+ Capricorn opposite US Jupiter. That combined with the Equinox Moon-trine-Venus makes a powerful Kite pattern.

The US Solar Return chart also had an Aries Moon conjunct Chiron on the US natal chart’s IC (roots) which is where the Full Moon will also be on September 24th, again conjunct transiting Chiron.

The September Full Moon chart’s Saturn and Vesta (what is invested in) at 2+ Capricorn will T-square the Full Moon herself and Chiron + US IC in Aries opposite the Sun in Libra and US MC. Add in US Venus (3+ Cancer and it’s grand cross time.

Fasten your seatbelts everyone, the ladies are prepared to do battle in the name of Anita Hill this September. Revenge can be sweet.

Diana, the fact that rethugs had all those letters of female support as defensive ammo ready to fire at the first whiff of scandal, tells me they knew ahead of time there is substance to the story.
Her story as recounted certainly seems credible to me, and with the ‘butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-his-mouth’ creepiness factor, his word is very hard to believe. Plausible though ‘the boys’ were so drunk they indeed do not remember, or that it was so much their version of ‘normal behaviour’ that to them it has now become just a blur.

We must remind the posters every day to send blessings and strength to all of those in need every day and specifics and self are of course OK.

“……The September Full Moon chart’s Saturn and Vesta (what is invested in) at 2+ Capricorn will T-square the Full Moon herself and Chiron + US IC in Aries opposite the Sun in Libra and US MC. Add in US Venus (3+ Cancer and it’s grand cross time.”

Lest we forget, with an expected Trump announcement this week declaring an imposition of 200 billion dollars in tariffs on Chinese imports and China threatening to retaliate, this could have a real impact on the US economy and world markets in general. The September 24th full moon forms a grand cross square to the Federal Reserve’s Sun-Pluto opposition (1 ’33 Capricorn – 0 ’05 Cancer).

Yes indeed Jerry, the grand cross (Full Moon to US natal chart) suggests a crucial financial crisis in Sept.-Oct. for the USA. When it rains it pours and these days that seems to be the general message.

Kiwi, for-profit prison systems are an assault on justice. If you wish to get rich quick, just create a for-profit prison. If you’re on the receiving end of this justice, make sure you pay bail. If you can’t afford to?

Patty,
See my September 15 posting.

“The U.S. Mars at 21º18’ Gemini is a key player when it comes to U.S. disasters, both manmade and natural. Why this should be so can best be seen when using the Scorpio Rising national horoscope, since Mars is the co-ruler of the chart (along with Pluto).”

“What America really wants is for Brett Kavanaugh, like Christine Ford, to also take a lie detector test. ”

In just 49 days from today control of the House of Representatives beginning in January will be determined and it likely will be to the Democratic party.

If that comes about the new Speaker of the House could possibly be the next president if tRump and pence are removed from office. Who do you want it to be?

Remember – the Speaker does not have to be member of the House.

. . .and if and when we were to get Ford’s birth info and the date this happened we could learn a lot.

Yesterday transiting Juno (defends the disenfranchised) was conjunct transiting Sedna (disenfranchised but became powerful) at 27+ Taurus and square US Moon (women or people in general; masses) at 27+ Aquarius, but trine US natal Pluto (covert power) at 27+ Capricorn, when we learned her name. (Trans. Pandora [opening a can of worms] was at 26+ Capricorn)

Eliseo, Do you have a link to this Texas Fiasco?
I’ll send it to my San Francisco Radio Host, she’ll be shocked and think it unbelievable without a link.

Marjorie Orr has a new post up on the US Constitution
http://www.star4cast.ca/usa-constitution-under-strain-facing-severe-tests-ahead/

Thursday confirmation vote on Kavanaugh POSTPONED. Public hearing with Ford and Kavanaugh to be held Monday 9/24.

I am seeing this present Kavanaugh kerfuffle as history in the making; one of those seemingly small steps forward as our country struggles to find the middle road in a world of extreme polarity. It suggests a struggle to break through the patriarchal thinking, now less potent than it was 100 – 50 – or even 35 or so years ago.

I know it (the kerfuffle) has been a product of the present Mercury-Jupiter cycle that started last year at 1+ Scorpio, but I think I’ve found the bigger, longer cycle it (the Mercury-Jupiter cycle) is supporting; the Neptune-Uranus cycle.

It (the Neptune-Uranus cycle) started in 1993 in Capricorn (the 18-19 deg range where trans. Pluto is now) and, in the 3rd of 3 conjunctions between Neptune and Uranus, the Sun was at 1+ Scorpio, conjunct where the 2017 Mercury-Jupiter cycle would start that was conjunct the US natal Hades.

Trans, Neptune and Uranus formed an exact semisquare on June 16th this year, a second one will take place on December 15th and the 3rd on May 2, 2019.

These things (small steps forward) take time to come to fruition and in this case, the Mercury-Jupiter cycle means reams and reams of words and thoughts and theories being exchanged among participants (in this case everyone who supports either a man’s rights to superiority or a woman’s right to equality).

So, let’s say it started in 1776 when transiting Hades was at zero+ Scorpio at the birth of this Nation. Nobody knew it was there (and technically it ISN’T there, it is hypothetical – so far), but in 1993 it (US natal Hades) was destined to become conscious (Sun symbolizes consciousness) thanks to the Neptune-Uranus cycle just getting underway.

In October 2017, the Mercury-Jupiter conjunction then began its annual cycle conjunct the US natal Hades, as well as conjunct the Sun in the Neptune-Uranus cycle, making a point of pushing this rather overlooked feature in the US natal chart into mainstream consciousness. This cycle will end on October 29, 2018.

However, transiting Uranus in Taurus has opposed the US Hades in recent months and on October 24 (just before the present Mercury Jupiter cycle ends), the Full Moon will conjunct transiting Uranus as it opposes the transiting Sun that will be conjunct the US natal (and hypothetical) Hades (+ the Sun in the Neptune-Uranus cycle + the start degree of the Mercury-Jupiter cycle about to end).

This Full Moon + Uranus opposite Sun + US Hades will form a grand cross with the transiting North Node in Leo opposite the South Node in Aquarius where transiting Mars is today (which is one degree from where the next Jupiter-Saturn cycle [a societal observer] starts in 2 years). But that’s a story for later.

Fellow history enthusiasts will want to see if the USA takes advantage of this leg up it is receiving from the Universe in its climb towards expanded consciousness and eventual escape from the confines of duality. Why wait? We will be voting less than 2 weeks later.

A new Kavanaugh accuser may come forward –

“the path to his confirmation now looks much more challenging, and it is one that contains great peril for the Republican Party.”

https://www.newyorker.com/news/our-columnists/brett-kavanaughs-supreme-court-nomination-is-in-big-trouble

Kiwi, i love the AA Milne characters so much too, i hope Mary poppins and Christopher Robbins are a sign of better times, what about Mr. Rogers , they just came out with a movie on him.

Patty, the thing about them voting Hillary and Helen Keller out of TexAs textbooks, i have seen it all over Twitter with links, do you want me to look up some and send to you?

Finally, what do y’all think about trump releasing all these fbi memos and texts etc on the ongoing Russian investigations, it’s crazy, i am listening to the Woodward Fear book now on Trump, its so disturbing, anyone else reading? Agent Orange is so dangerous …

I just did a post and it’s not up, perhaps i put my email address in wrong, since it still forces you to enter name and email each time, is there any way i can get it back, or is it forever lost in the intrawebs?

Sorry, it appeared again

Thumbs up kiwi!

I have had a feeling for several months that our political quagmire had reached a tipping point that would be reflected in events to come and we would soon be able to turn the tables on the soulless ones.

Things will not change overnight but I think a huge stress relieving step will be the results of the midterm elections (like a breath of fresh air we have not had for the longest time).

We will rebuild and it will be better than ever! Where to start? Roll back whatever tRump has put in place, remove his cabinet members, drain the swamp for real. Installation of a new administration! Infusion of women in office at every political level and as a voting block, the same for young people in the voting electorate! Oh my!

I was listening to this fellow yesterday and thought I could be singing this to Dem voters on November 7th.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jicFOn8pK0

Bob, the only thing I am wary of with the rebuilding phase, is that the more militant dems will become a flip side of the current rethug coin.
For example, I have met many fellow females over the years who do not exemplify true equality in the workplace, but switch instead from the role of bully to femme fatale at will, to manipulate and gaslight others whenever apt.
We must come from heart, intelligence, strategy, and ultimate unity, rather than hateful tribalism.

Ja,
As I’m sure you probably know, polygraphs strictly speaking don’t determine if someone is lying. They only record certain physical effects associated (for normal folks) with lying. Sociopaths and those who truly believe what they are saying pass polygraphs easily.

I’m not suggesting Kavanaugh is a sociopath, but I suspect that either due to his drunken state, or to the blur of what might have been considered “normal” at the time in context he genuinely believes the incident never occurred.

Therefore, a polygraph test probably would not be useful in regard to Ms. Ford’s accusation, BUT might be VERY helpful in regard to his previous cases, legal opinions, and true positions. I have little doubt he has lied, lied, and told more lies about his true legal philosophy that he might be confirmed. He appears to me to be a pretty sexist fellow, sympathetic to authoritarian political philosophies, unsympathetic to the spirit of our constitution, and NOT at all appropriate for the SCOTUS or for his present position as a federal judge.

But of course, the Judicial committee will likely never consider a polygraph test for a federal judge and candidate for the SC.

On a personal note: When I was an undergraduate, decades ago I was invited to some fraternity parties. I’m no prude, but I was shocked & appalled as to what was then considered acceptable behavior by both males & females, particularly when drunk. I imagine it might have been the same where Kavanaugh & Ford attended HS.

Needless to say, I had NO interest in joining that fraternity, or any other. Had I been female, therefore subject to such abuse, I have no doubt I would have reacted as did Ford to what in fraternity culture was considered normal and OK. May it never be considered normal or OK again.

Anna Marie Cox has some interesting insights she expressed on Lawrence O’ Donnell’s The Last Word. She said whether while a drunk blacked out HS 17 year old child he did something terrible is less important than his apparent profound insensitivity to women’s pain.

That’s what I see in Kavanaugh, a profound insensitivity and blindness to the feelings of women.

Cox spoke as a recovering addict who said she’s done some terrible things she doesn’t remember while compromised by alcohol or drugs. She said what is important is that she listen, own her bad behavior and determine what she can do to make it better.

Evidently, Kavanaugh has not done that.

Unfortunately, I believe many of the male members on the committee are equally insensitive.

Patty,
Dems here in Texas are very excited because it appears Beto has a real chance, not a guarantee, but a genuine chance of defeating senator Cruz. Cruz as you know is widely disliked by R’s & Dems.

Info on Bradley and the Texas Board of Education is common knowledge among college faculty and many public school teachers, but I know of no link that might be useful to your radio host. The board, consisting of 11 R’s and 4 Dems sporadically makes some pretty absurd decisions, but they pretty consistently do so quietly.

Those decisions only make sense if you are
(A) a creationist
(B) believe global warming is a hoax
(C) regard biblical texts as literal history as opposed to poetry
(D) believe Liberalism is evil
(E) believe education tends to make folks more liberal
(F) therefore, prefer students be trained but NOT educated

The good news is that an increasing number of school districts are ignoring the TX B of E’s recommendations as to what textbooks should be used in the classroom.

Kiwi,
RE: your 11:31 pm posting.
I agree entirely. Although a Leftist, I’m alarmed at the growing authoritarian Left, particularly on college campuses.

I too have known a number of women who “do not exemplify true equality in the workplace, but switch instead from the role of bully to femme fatale at will, to manipulate and gaslight others whenever apt.”

I have been an ardent Dem. Socialist-feminist since age 12. Practically everyone, male and female in the social science and humanities departments at my university are ardent feminists as well. Nevertheless, one professor in particular at my university fits your description above. Whenever any male person disagrees with her on any issue, she automatically cries foul and vociferously accuses them of sexism, fascism, etc. Unfortunately, through her bullying she has gained a great deal of power. All of our equalitarian faculty, male and female are afraid of her.

Eliseo, I saw that interview with anna marie cox and thought she imparted a great perspective on things.
On the other topic, sadly, often with powerful female bullies they are simply closet man haters. Perhaps because Im a woman Ive felt compelled on occasion to call out more than one on their bully tactics and double standards. They need to learn, Feminist equality does not mean female superior or dominant.
I suspect that person may be overcompensating for a deep inner unworthiness, overreacting to any perceived criticism. Secure people don’t bully. Call her on it!

Eliseo, further to that last thought, maybe she has a borderline personality disorder – (experience with my ex daughter in law. They keep everyone on eggshells to remain in control. Not much to be done except disengage where possible.)

My charts for tRump show every day from Sep 19 (Wed) through Sep 24 (Mon) is stressful.

The possibility that Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation’s could deny him his SCOTUS protector has him so rattled he can’t think straight. Especially if public pressure demands and forces an FBI investigation of the allegations that may delay seating a justice to the court until after the next congress is sworn in.

He is toast – a walking dead man.

Kiwi,
RE: closet man haters. Yep, too many of those, but IMHO we also have even more male women haters. I see it in the clothing and shoes women wear, designed of course by men.

I understand why people develop these hatreds, but I’ve always though it was crazy even back in elementary school when the other boys were going “ewwwwww girls!”

I’ve always liked women for who they were and felt that dislike for ANYONE, BECAUSE they were different was just plain crazy. Although it was extremely socially unacceptable at the time, when I was in a High School my best friend was female. Needless to say, we were both considered very weird. We are still good platonic friends unto this day.

As to the bully gal at my university, fortunately she is not in my department. I haven’t had to deal with her in meetings. But for me it is no problem as I’m not teaching this semester; I’m working on my late mother’s house to get it ready for sale and am preparing to move back to my adopted home, the Pacific Northwest.

Eliseo, growing up around sailboats with gender neutral crews instilled in me no sense of ‘mandated’ male/female roles. I was expected to pull my weight just like the guys and I was treated with respect for my work and skills, sharing roles whether in the galley or changing sails in heavy winds. A healthy upbringing imo.
It was not till I moved to the states that I understood why the womens movement became so necessary – I was quite shocked when, assisting board passengers in the early 70s on our charter beach cat, a texan male refused my hand offered to steady him, and said haughtily ‘I will not be helped by a woman’ LOL! It became clear to me in an instant the barriers many US women faced. Some found it hard to believe that I had a coast guard captain’s license.
Years later in the early 2000’s with our construction business I answered the phone and some guy insisted on speaking to the boss – I replied, can I help you? When he repeated his request I said, ‘whats the matter, don’t you like lady bosses’ he got very flustered, stammered and then hung up. I was highly amused. LOL

Am looking forward to hearing of the stories associated with your pending new adventures in the PNW. Cheers!

Kiwi,
LOL! I suppose the fellow must have been pretty embarrassed. It does indeed sound like you had a pretty healthy upbringing. I’m sure you are aware NZ was the first nation to extend the vote to women? I seriously considered moving to NZ decades ago. I’ve never quite fit I here in the US. But karmic ties are difficult to negotiate.

I’ll be glad to share my stories with you re: my PNW adventures, plus my fiction, nonfiction and poetry and songs. Although I’ll likely be working for WA state in Olympia, my REAL focus will be developing, publishing, and selling my novels, poetry, essays, etc.

I look forward to going home. I’ve been stuck here with heavy responsibilities and haven’t seen my wife for 4 years. Pluto goes into my 8th in November. I hope by then the energies that be allow me to please, please, please go home.

Love the “background” posts Kiwi and Eliseo!

Another new Diary entry

https://www.diaryofamundaneastrologer.net/

Kiwi and Eliseo,

The threads started at 11:31pm and ending 8:07am between the two of you have been culturally informative. Both of you also offered insightful truths with your analysis of women bullies. Good reading.

Bob, thank you always for the reassurance that the mad man will be held accountable, in some way: “He is toast – a walking dead man.”

Thank you Janet.

The following transits to a noon chart for kavanaugh suggest he may see his hope for a confirmation fading away. An indication that Democrats take control of at least one house of Congress.

In the the Ford/Kavanaugh revelations, aren’t we approaching a Saturn Return from the time of the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill hearings ?

” In Kavanaugh’s horoscope (birth time unknown), we note that transiting Jupiter has moved on to his natal Neptune, suggesting an expansion of ideals, faith, spirits of all kinds and scandal.”

Rosie from Tarot Politics just put out a guided meditation to protect Christine Blasey Ford. It’s short
and heartfelt. If it talks to you, spread it around:

wow fierywoman, that meditation was awesome! Thanks for the link!
Interesting you mention Saturn return for the Thomas confirmation process – Rachel highlighted Anita’s testimony on her show either last night or the night before.

Rachael interview with Hillary tonight
imo worth watching to get you thinking beyond immediate dramas of the day . . . . .
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show

Kiwi, I l-o-v-e-d your tale of working on sailboats. I used to have a violin student who was terrified of making any kind of sound. Then I saw a pic of her atop a tall mast (I knew she and her family were seriously into sailing) and I said, F— how can you climb a mast like that and you’re afraid to make a sound on the violin? She giggled and said that the ship owners were scared to go up themselves so they paid her $50… She eventually discovered she was comfortable playing Irish tunes at night when everyone was docked but the classical stuff made her crazy — which was fine with me!
kiwi, i just want to say that I cherish all that you contribute here. Blessings, peace, “golden orbs”!

Kiwi,
Hillary is not my favorite Dem. She and I have some fairly deep policy disagreements, BUT I have tremendous respect for her intelligence, competence, and professionalism.

I agree with you re: Rachel’s interview with her. HRC was very prescient. Her assertion Trump might reject the results of the mid-term election (FAKE NEWS! RIGGED ELECTION!) and/or fire a plethora of cabinet and administration members makes perfectly good sense. Hillary was remarkably clear and prudent in her thinking. It is an interview worth seeing. We do indeed need to keep looking ahead beyond the bizarre dramas we behold, now so often presenting themselves to us.

Meanwhile, we are losing time. The underlying theme of both H. Clinton’s and Obama’s recent statements is this:

We are focused on the malignant shenanigans of an existentially absurd presidency and an R. party which has abandoned its own principles in an addictive and transparently dishonest attempt to maintain power. We are therefore not focused on the pressing problems we need to squarely face.

Bob, Hee Hee thank you for the Paul anka song, I definitely like it better than dirty Diana by Michael Jackson !

Kiwi i agree with fiery woman i loved your sailing story, just great.. and so true what you say about the US and the attitude toward women here !

Omg, if they go ahead and vote for Kavanaugh, i so hope it backfires on them!

Diana,
Even if the R’s win this one, I feel it will really be a serious loss. The way things are setting up, I don’t see how it could be otherwise.

Bob, trump is toast, Kavanaugh is toast. the Republicans are toast it appears, from a look at the US Solar Return. Where to start?

Nessus (abuse of power) is conjunct US natal Nessus (9+ Pisces). The midpoint between Nessus and Neptune in the US Solar Return chart is about 13 Pisces and trines US natal-SR Sun in Cancer and SR Jupiter at 13+ Scorpio.

Sedna in Taurus sextiles Pallas in Cancer and they form a Yod to Vesta and Pholus and the Galactic Center. Oh yeah.

Vesta (24+ Sagittarius) then trines Eris (24+ Aries) and Venus (24+ Leo). This grand trine of ladies has an agenda. The discovery degree of Uranus (24+ Gemini) opposes Vesta (the Workaholic) in the US SR chart puts her in charge and with even just a hint of Uranus it will be explosive.

Uranus in the US SR chart (2+ Taurus) conjunct Pallas (the Strategist) at 1+ Taurus oppose the US natal Hades (0+ Scorpio) meaning a showdown is coming in the US this year.

Mars (aggression) in the US SR chart at 8+ Aquarius retro. conjuncts the South Node at 6+ Aquarius which conjuncts the US natal South Node (what doesn’t work anymore, such as men getting away with abusing women) and the US natal Pholus (small cause, big effect). The Saturn-Jupiter cycle – soon to come to an end – has Neptune (obfuscation) at 6+ Aquarius too.

Transiting Mars will reach 6+ Aquarius by October 1st.

This SR Mars also trines the US natal Uranus in Gemini promising a breakthrough. This Mars also opposes Mercury (8+ Leo) in the same SR chart and that Mercury sextiles US Uranus and it is the ruler of the sign US natal Uranus is in.

Then there is transiting Saturn (2+ Capricorn) that exactly trines the US SR chart’s Ceres (2+ Virgo) and the Uranus + Pallas in Taurus. I feel the earth move under my feet; I feel the sky tumbling down.

fierywoman,

Thank you for the link. I have been raging as I watch snips of Rethugs trying to justify a rush to rape Mrs Ford in order to accommodate that worthless traitor to her country and ours that she is bravely trying to protect in a manner none of them have probably never done.

I don’t know if it is the length of time we have endured this cretin or just that I have reached my limit with all of those bastards that lied to get elected, then swore an oath to protect and serve, and are not living up to their lies and oath but I will not post my most hateful thoughts about them.

This is the most thankful I have ever been for this site and all who post here. My heart embraces all of you.

This keeps intruding on my mind of late –
“blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth”
(meek – meaning gentle, kind, humble of heart, exhibiting self control)

I think kavanaugh’s accuser is one of the meek ones.

Bob,
I feel the same way. Never have I been more grateful for the existence of this site and the good people who inhabit it and post here. Most of all, my thankfulness goes to Nancy, without whom this community would not have come into being.

The anxiety Orange Man and and his peculiarly loyal cardre of regressive R’s brings forth within me is at least somewhat ameliorated by the goodheartedness expressed here.

Thank You, Nancy! Thank You All of You! Blessings to All.

Thanks so very much ja, she really sees the Big Pix that’s so hard to remember as we struggle with what’s now our everyday reality.

Just this morning I was thinking how we all still try to format our routines to the old reality (based on the old, reliable structures), something we took for granted just like we take for granted the Sun will rise in the East every day.

“The day-to-day flux of life is so erratic that what’s also necessary is the willingness to let go of the emotional, mental, and even spiritual desire for specific outcomes.”

Amen!

Barbk, I was thinking how much you and Ralfee’s posts resonate with one another.

Eliseo,

“Most of all, my thankfulness goes to Nancy, without whom this community would not have come into being”

Bravo!

The Comanche psychic said that Kavanaugh may be confirmed…but then she saw a hand on his shoulder pull him back.. not so fast. That vision resonates strongly with me.

CAUTION: DATE IS NOT VERIFIED!

A date of November 28, 1966 has been posted in a thread (no confirmation or source) on Astro.dienst as the birth date of Dr. Ford.

When posting a synastry of noon charts for her and Kavanaugh there is a Mars on Mars (her 27°05′ Virgo – him 26°38′ Virgo) and a square of his Saturn (5°56′ Pisces) to her Sun (6°01′ Sag). His Mars/Pluto midpoint opposes her Saturn.

Transiting Neptune that summer squared her Saturn and his Mars/Pluto midpoint that opposed it.

That November date progressed to now has Sun opposite Jupiter with the Sun on Sibly Pluto and Jupiter opposite.

“That summer” was 1982. She was 15 until November if the date is valid.

Good grief! 15 years old. Thanks Bob.

Linda Comanche read Kavanaugh twice. The second time she saw a 2nd person coming forward after Dr. Ford. She did not see Dr. Ford coming forward by herself. While we are on the subject, I am getting very tired of MSNBC having all of these political experts telling Dr. Ford what to do. At this point, I could care less. I only want Dr. Ford to do what she feels comfortable doing. I find Susan Collins particularly annoying. “[Coming forward] would only be fair to Judge Kavanaugh, ” states Susan Collins. Who is she kidding? Kavanaugh is afraid of an FBI investigation, and if Dr. Ford showed up for the hearing, they would skewer her, in “a nice way, of course and on tape.”

Virgo do you think then that she got it wrong or that the second person is on the way? I like her.

I agree with you about being tired of people telling her what to do. I was the victim of a group of vicious bullies and I can tell you that it is very scary. Easy to sit on the sidelines and say c’mon you can do it.

Feel the same about S Collins. I do not think she is running in 2020. No way. Her husband is a DC lobbyist with ties to Russia. Take it from there.

Agree too about this being a trap for Dr Ford. Total trap. They will have K prepared for any and all questions. This is McGrath’s? swan song and the jewel in his crown.

Chris Matthews just said they should slow down because if they confirm him and something else comes up… He is pretty plugged in I guess I wonder what he knows.

That date has Saturn (22+ Pisces) exactly opposite the US natal Neptune at 22+ Virgo (and square Trump’s Sun at 22+ Gemini). Saturn was opposite Uranus (23+ Virgo) and Pluto (20+ Virgo) at the time.

From an historical perspective it works.

Oxthecat: All of the youtube psychics have said pretty much the same thing. Kavanaugh doesn’t get confirmed. I think that Linda initially saw Kavanaugh as confirmed is probably related to the inevitability with which all of the Republicans regard him. I don’t know if the 2nd person is on the way. I know someone emerged today who was a year behind Dr. Ford in school and heard gossip about the incident while a student, but she is not an eyewitness. Everyone sees Collins and Murkowski as the spoilers for Kavanaugh. Have you noticed the way Kavanaugh smiles when he is lying. An example was his lie to Senator Leahy about the stolen Democratic emails.

. . and this; a Nov. 28, 1966 birth has natal Neptune in Scorpio sextile natal Uranus-Pluto in Virgo that forms a Yod to US natal Chiron (20+ Aries) that then becomes a Boomerang when US natal Juno (defends the disenfranchised) at 20+ Libra is added.

Right now trans. Photographica (a picture of the moment) is conjunct trans. Jupiter (both at 20+ Scorpio) symbolizing understanding, and they square (challenge!) the Uranus (20+ Aquarius) in the Jupiter-Saturn cycle, plus the US progressed Mercury (20+ Aquarius), which symbolizes where the Collective thinking in the US is now.

Right. A smile is recognition. He recognizes what is being said to him. He knew what Leahy said was true.

I saw that facebook post. She seems to not want anything to do with this and I can’t say that I blame her.

A friend of Dr Ford’s was just on with Chris Hayes. Very credible. Very good. Hope more of her friends speak out.

Hard to say what will happen. I hope all the psychics are right.

Oxthecat- I saw the friend and her conversation with Chris Hayes made me smile. I hope all the psychics are right also.

New slogan in comments section of Washington Post:
Grab’em by the mid-terms!

Why does the media continue to assert that McConnell is such a “brilliant strategist”?

I fail to see what’s smart or strategic about inadvertently introducing an entirely new generation to the Anita Hill/Thomas hearings. To informing that generation that a sexual harasser sits on the Supreme Court.

Is it somehow an act of genius to awaken the rage of millions of women who had tried to forget that awful chapter in history?

Is it clever that they walk through the halls of senate, saying dismissive, blatantly sexist things to reporters seeking comment, about women, victims, and assault?

Seems incredibly dumb and myopic, imho.

If the dumpster fire that is Kavanaugh is placed, I may be wrong, but I don’t see it ending well…for them.

Dr. Blasey Ford can file a complaint with Maryland police. There is no statute of limitations for sexual assault in Maryland, and Drumpf could not pardon a state crime. She also could appear on 60 minutes. She has ways to sink the Kavanaugh nomination even if she chooses not to testify in a sham hearing in Washington.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/opinions/wp/2018/09/20/republicans-be-forewarned-kavanaughs-accuser-has-options/?utm_term=.7592333c1cf5

Kiwi,
Is it appropriate then to say “Happy Suffrage Day”?

Andre- It is really hard for Blasey-Ford. Death threats, etc. When you have been abused, it is so much easier to be anonymous. I thought there was no statue of limitations also, but there is of 1-2 years for assault attempt only.
By the way, I looked at my nonprofessional Astrodienst chart for Chief Justice Roberts thinking that I might have a clue about Kavanaugh. Apparently they all want this conservative judicial majority. Roberts has Saturn square Mars until Dec. 2018 and Saturn square Ascendant until Oct. 2019. From 2020 on, his chart is very bad.

First of all, Lamis thank you so much for the news about the newly discovered “Super Earth” planet (not so far away). How exciting is that?

Lexi, I guess “smart” and “brilliant” are not words reserved for well-meaning folks alone. Even the most dastardly among us like MM can exhibit those qualities, although I would describe him more as conniving and cunning.

I’m becoming more aware (conscious) of how we express our communal (collective) energies as symbolized by the outer (really out there) planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. For the most part we don’t identify with these drives on a personal level, and yet, they burst out of us at certain times with amazing strength. Really we are all One and can feel and express that at certain times.

When one or more of the outer planets aspects one or more of the personal planets (Sun-Moon through Mars) and/or the social planets (Jupiter and Saturn), a rather primitive expression of energy comes to the surface of us as individuals. This can be seen in the transits but also in individual birth charts.

The alleged birth time for Dr. Ford is a classic example of how an individual (possibly born for the purpose) can trigger such mass reactions.

The USA was born with challenges (call them flaws if you like) and one of them was symbolized by Chiron opposite Juno, although they had not been discovered yet.

The cycle of the outer planets Uranus and Neptune that began in the ’60’s leaned heavily on transiting Neptune at the time to wield their power over we mortals. Neptune was in Scorpio and sextile Uranus and Pluto in Virgo.

They formed a Yod-turned-Boomerang with US Chiron and Juno, a complex astrological pattern of energies that, in the end, is fully expressed by the planet or other transiting body in the Boomerang position. In this case that would be US natal Juno. Juno symbolizes the not-equal partner and she is a defender of the disenfranchised

At the time of the alleged birth of Dr. Ford, the Uranus-Pluto conjunction was sextile Neptune and transiting Vesta (the workaholic, also what we invest in) was at 20+ Libra, the same degree that the US natal Juno occupies.

Either Dr. Ford was targeted for this purpose (symbolizing US Juno) or she volunteered for the job (before birth of course) or some combination of karma and dharma brought her to the place she finds herself in now. The purpose was to be a consciousness stimulant for American citizens (voters).

We all relate to her trauma in the summer of ’82 (thx Bob). She was the perfect foil for the Uranus-conjunct-Pluto sextile Neptune – aspecting the US natal Chiron-Juno opposition. It’s a group thing; a collective reaction designed to change the status quo. It’s working.

Kiwi, the more I know about New Zealand, the more I wish I lived there.

Certainly Eliseo!
Caseym, like anywhere there are plusses and minuses with day to day life here. Imo, mostly plusses, but the grass isn’t always greener over the fence – problems are here too.

Mueller is a Republican…
Is that why we hear nothing re: Russia helping Trump steal that Election? Why the delay?
NYT has a piece: “The Plot to Subert an Election”
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/09/20/us/politics/russia-interference-election-trump-clinton.html

Patience Patty. My feeling has always been this is about dirty money and dishonesty influencing politicians of all stripes rather than party per se – (its just that the repubs these days are the most corrupt bunch). I think Mueller is after corrupt global influences and webs, and about protecting the constitution, rather than a focus on tribal political affiliations.
Spilling the beans to soon will just end up with everyone holding an empty basket, and many people have an huge agenda to engineer just that.

Marjorie has written on Ford. also, scroll down to the comment section
http://www.star4cast.ca/christine-blasey-ford-in-the-eye-of-the-storm/

another thought: sad that media etc is focusing on just the sex thing by a drunk teenager, instead of the good chance that a ‘respected’ judge might be lying these many years later.
Disqualification is about the lie under oath, people.
The responses remind me so much of the mindsets that allowed white privileged men to get away with wife beating and lies because they were ‘upstanding members of the community’.

Kiwi,
RE: “The responses remind me so much of the mindsets that allowed white privileged men to get away with wife beating and lies because they were ‘upstanding members of the community’.”

That’s the way I read this as well. I agree the man is a “creep” but for different reasons from the me-too folks. AND, the lying under oath by itself should be enough to have him removed from his position as a federal judge and possibly have him disbarred.

Both parties are hypocritical, but the R’s have sunk to a level of constitutional and moral depravity beyond anything we’ve ever imagined in their willingness to knowingly place candidates with practically zero virtue, with abusive and/or criminal histories in high position in order to fulfill the mandates of their ideology and fulfill their agenda. Party first! Ideology first! Money Mine! Country…nevermind.

Eliseo, and kiwi – great posts!

I recently had a discussion with a Trump-supporter, and they’re coming from exactly the perspective you’re talking about: The end justifying the means.

I hope if more women are out there who’ve been treated inappropriately by Kavanaugh, that they come forward posthaste!

Dear Kiwi, you are both very wise and very kind.
I so want The Russian Truth to be out!
They destoryed Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Run.
I realize Hillary Clinton wasn’t perfect…
Will Any Woman Ever Be Perfect?
But the following shows that Mueller is progressing, and that’s finally positive.

“Mueller may have evidence corroborating a key dossier allegation about Michael Cohen and Russian collusion” With a very extensive report: https://www.businessinsider.com/mueller-michael-cohen-prague-dossier-evidence-2018-4

“The scrutiny on Dr. Blasey is more intense than what Ms. Kendall faced, because it involves not just power and money but politics, too. The stakes are enormous: The outcome of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing will set the direction of the Supreme Court for a generation.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/20/us/politics/on-politics-christine-blasey-ford-katherine-kendall.html

In a remarkable coincidence the 2 news makers of the day, Michael Cohen and Dr. Ford, were both born in 1966, the year the Uranus-Pluto cycle got underway. Both their natal charts (Ford’s birth date has yet to be verified) has that conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in Virgo sextilel Neptune in Scorpio which in turn activates the US natal chart’s Chiron opposite Juno.

Cohen’s natal South Node conjuncts his natal Neptune while Ford’s natal South Node conjuncts her natal Mercury which conjuncts her natal Neptune.

Last week transiting Jupiter was conjunct Cohen’s natal South Node and Neptune while trans Jupiter started this month conjunct Ford’s South Node + Mercury and will end the month conjunct her natal Neptune. In other words, this month trans. Jupiter in Scorpio has been conjunct the Neptune that was sextile the Uranus-Pluto conjunction that took place in 1965-66. What’s going on?

South Nodes in a chart symbolize what has been perfected by the chart owner but no longer serves the owner in a positive manner. However, if it is given away, so to speak, it can benefit in another way. They both, Cowen and Ford, seem willing to give away something to the US government; information. That information has caused them pain but it might start a healing process for both of them.

In the case of the Uranus-Pluto cycle itself, trans. Jupiter has been activating the Neptune function which was sextile (enabling) Uranus and Pluto back in 1966. Now, together, they all have directly energized the opposition of US Chiron to US Juno who complete the Boomerang pattern I described earlier.

Each in their own way both Cohen and Ford exemplify the Juno symbolism of the partner that was not treated as equal to the other partner. For Cohen that partner would be Trump. For Ford she has not been treated equal to Kavanaugh by the Republicans who sit in judgement of them.

This is the wound symbolized by US Chiron in Aries projected onto US Juno in Libra. In 2024 US Chiron will have a 50 year Return (trans. Chiron conjuncts US Chiron), right after trans Chiron conjuncts a total Solar Eclipse in April, and right after trans Jupiter and Uranus begin their new cycle. By then we might have started a national healing regarding inequality.

I believe that because in less than 6 months a New Moon at 15+ Pisces conjuncts transiting Neptune at 16+ Pisces, which conjuncts Cohen’s natal Black Moon Lilith which opposes his natal Uranus-Pluto conjunction.

That same New Moon and Neptune in Pisces will also trine Dr. Ford’s natal Mercury and South Node in Scorpio which might finally release her from years of trauma. That’s what I’m hoping for anyway.

Patty,
Many Thanks for that business insider link!

Also, please recall that one of the 8 or so occupations/professions I have practiced so far in my lifetime was that of criminal investigator. I therefore may be approaching our present and bizarre political dramas somewhat differently from many.

We all (at least on this blog) want Russian malfeasance to be revealed and connections and collusion between Trump & Co. and the Russians exposed. But we need be patient. This, more than any case I‘ve ever been familiar with must be handled with supreme and extreme delicacy. The immense circumstances of our dilemma are beyond anything we might have imagined, the potential of which must not be underestimated.

Consider this: Mueller & his people are investigating what will likely be regarded as the deepest, most insidious, most complex and interconnected spider’s web of treason ever perpetuated on the United States, as well as upon the rest of the world at large. The criminal conspiracy he is plumbing is exponentially larger than ALL of our previous scandals and episodes of treason put together throughout our American history.

Furthermore, Russian interference in our election is connected to election interference and manipulation in several other countries. That web of criminality likely extends deeply into the R. party and of course into the presidency of DJT.

In other words, this may well be the biggest criminal case in modern history. Mr. Mueller and company cannot afford to err. They are in opposition to extraordinarily powerful forces. We must not underestimate the fascist potential and propensities of Mr. Trump and his demagogued followers, or of the Russian kleptocracy under Mr. Putin.

So far, to our knowledge, Mr. Trump has not employed murder as part of his toolkit, but we know Mr. Putin certainly has. Mueller and his team have no choice but to get it 100% completely right before they carefully present their evidence. Not only is the Constitution of the United States at stake here, but also potentially the very lives of the investigators themselves.

IF…IF Mueller and his team perform their duties properly and without interference, we may well see a large number of R. operatives and R. senators, congressmen, and congresswomen arrested, tried, and jailed. But the case they present must be absolutely irreproachable, and convincing to the majority of Americans, our military establishment, and the world abroad.

If Mueller and his team are too impetuous, or if they make any mistakes which might be challenged legally, etc., or if there is anything the R’s can use to cast reasonable doubt on their conclusions, methods, or evidence, doubt which can be used to manipulate enough American citizens, Mueller and his team, plus many others could find themselves hanging by a rope, or facing firing squads at the behest of an angry demagogued public or perhaps our government gone awry.

Recall that we are facing our Pluto and Uranus returns not simultaneously, but certainly within less than a decade of one another. Also, (and I do not claim to understand the full significance) but sometime in 2022 we, (meaning the entire world) will witness for several months a spectacular and very bright red nova explosion in the constellation Cygnus, the result of a collision and merging between two stars which occurred 1,800 years ago. It will appear to us as a bright and shining ruby in our sky, the meaning of which many will ponder. It is of utmost importance we continue to pay attention to the interpretations of Nancy and the excellent and scholarly astrologers who post here.

Meanwhile, Mueller and his team need not only our patience, but our fervent and sincere prayers.

Saturn-Pluto aspects have a dark side. The alleged assault by Brett Kavanaugh on Dr. Blasey Ford occurred in 1982. That was of course the time of the last Saturn-Pluto conjunction. We are nearing the next such conjunction in January 2020. On October 1, Pluto will turn direct and enter its approach to that conjunction. The meaning of the conjunction should become clearer. The last one was about culture wars, the Reagan conservative counter-revolution, the beginning of the war in Afghanistan, the rise of the Taliban and the Iran-Iraq war. The next one, being in Capricorn, will underline the rot in major political institutions and an extreme form of conservatism. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, the legitimacy of the US Supreme court will be in doubt for many years. If he is not, there will still be a major cultural war in the US.

Andre – even darker The AIDS crisis began in 1981 –

Eric Francis:

“The Full Moon is conjunct Chiron and square Saturn, which means it’s rich with “character building” aspects — something we’ve experienced a lot of lately, perhaps a bit too much.”

http://planetwaves.net/astrologynews/restless-america-full-moon-approaching.html

Chrys & Andre,
If memory serves, two Pluto cycles before in the early 1500’s we have the beginning of syphilis.

I think the effects of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of 1982 began to be felt in late 1980, with the election of Ronald Reagan in November and the assassination of John Lennon in December. I remember distinctly feeling at the time that the party begun in the Sixties and lasting through the Seventies was suddenly over. Then, as Chrys mentions, there came AIDS and a haunting collective fear of nuclear war in the final mad arms race before the fall of the USSR. The Eighties were a dark time with the celebration of greed, banking deregulation and materialism which has lasted to this day. It felt like the lights had gone out.

Astrologically, the conjunction was in late Libra which means it blotted out the ideals and vision of the Neptune in Libra generation which had come of age during the Sixties and Seventies. These were partly revived during the passage of Neptune in Aquarius and Pluto in Sagittarius in the Nineties. Of course, the Saturn-Pluto opposition of 2001 brought 9/11 and the neocons, which was another step back historically.

The Saturn-Pluto conjunction of 2020 in late Capricorn will be square the conjunction of 1982, which might mean some events of that time will be challenged and revisited. We are beginning to feel its effects now. Next week’s square of the Moon in Aries square a stationing Pluto will be significant. That may be the day of Dr. Ford’s testimony.

I am hoping the fact that Saturn-Pluto will also be conjunct Ceres and Jupiter in 2020 will make this conjunction more positive than the last one.

Andre, I am so pleased you wrote about the Saturn-Pluto conjunction (as you have done before) in regard to the Kavanaugh-Ford incident. Thank you.

It made me remember that on the day of the midterm election the Moon will conjunct the Venus-Ceres conjunction which will be conjunct the 1982 conjunction between Saturn and Pluto, 27+ Libra.

This degree was also where Uranus was at the Neptune-Pluto conjunction in 1891, and Uranus was square Venus (values) at 27+ Cancer who was opposite the US natal Pluto in Capricorn.

Even Omorosa has something at 27+ Libra (don’t remember now what it was). I needed to see what the Sabian Symbol is for 28 Libra. A MAN BECOMING AWARE OF SPIRITUAL FORCES SURROUNDING AND ASSISTING HIM

Dane Rudhyar said that this awareness “produces a state of inner assurance”.

If so, this degree is being brought to our consciousness on election day by Venus and Ceres (+ Moon), backed by two cycles involving outer planets (the Collective), and I’m betting this means that the women voters (with inner assurance) will turn up to vote in record numbers.

Indeed, those other planets that accompany the Saturn-Pluto conjunction are a hopeful sign Andre, I agree with you.

They too are starting new cycles (new conjunctions), all of them much shorter in duration compared to the Saturn-Pluto cycle, and my take on it is a spreading out of a theme inherent in the chart for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.

There will be a Ceres-Saturn cycle, a Ceres-Pluto cycle, a Ceres-Sun cycle, a Sun-Pluto cycle, a Sun-Saturn cycle, a Mercury-Pluto cycle, a Mercury-Saturn cycle, a Mercury-Ceres cycle, and so the energy is parsed out over time and through various modes of operation.

Each one of them will include an opposition to transiting Arachne (makes webs; binding connections) and the US natal Mercury (communicates) in Cancer as well as a trine to the US natal Neptune (dream maker; shift in consciousness) in Virgo.

In each case of these spin-off cycles most will only last around one year – the approximate length of time before the “old” Jupiter-Saturn cycle ends and the new one starts. I think of these shorter cycles as bridging the time/space from when Saturn conjuncts Pluto (Jan 12, 2020) to when Saturn ends its present cycle with Jupiter (Dec 21, 2020) . . . . a kind of weaning or adjusting process.

By the end of 2020 Americans – well many Americans – will have hopefully adapted to the new Saturn-Pluto pace of life. Each of these “bridge” cycles that start within a day or so of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction will carry a grand trine between Uranus (breakthrough) at 2+ Taurus, Pholus (small cause, big effect) at 2+Cap and Transpluto (becoming whole) at 2+ Virgo. This could be a major theme during the period between January and December, 2020.

Eliseo, thank you for your post on September 21st,
at 2:47 am. It is one of the most cogent and smart overviews of the mess we are witnessing. You are right. They do need our prayers as the Trump/Putin syndicate will do all they can to stop this investigation and the indictments that will follow.

barbk, my natal Neptune is at 28 Libra square Chiron at 28 Capricorn and sextile my Moon at 28 Leo. Thank you for the Sabian symbol; it is apt. Since Neptune is in the 10th house and my most elevated planet, the conjunction of 1982 had a major impact on both my career and my marriage (Libra). The next conjunction will be near my Sun at 20 Capricorn in my second house.

One further note. The Saturn-Pluto conjunction will bring seeds which will bear fruit, good or ill, at the next opposition in the 2040s, just as the appearance of the Taliban and the war in Afghanistan in the early 80s bore the fruit called 9/11 in 2001.

What a stressful period of history! Thank for all for your thought provoking comments!

Eliseo, I receive Business Insider Free, you should sign up…here’s their latest Front Page:
‘We’re in the fourth quarter’: James Comey says Mueller may be about to finish his investigation into Trump”. https://www.businessinsider.com

Rod Rosenstein has natal Saturn at 2+ Pisces.

Transiting Saturn and transiting Uranus and transiting Transpluto form a grand trine and since Rod Rosenstein’s natal Saturn opposes trans. Transpluto, it (Transpluto) is the focal point of the grand trine (at least for Rod and all of us who admire what he’s doing; protecting the Mueller investigation).

I would surmise that Transpluto (2+ Virgo) which symbolizes becoming whole, will be fortified in this process with fixed star Regulus now at 0+ Virgo who will provide courage. This bodes well for Rod during this time of being attacked by Trump and his supporters. This too shall pass.

Can someone who is able to communicate with senate dems and/or perhaps Rachael, please persuade them to focus publicly on the issue of whether Kavanaugh LIES, rather than the sex salaciousness per se.
If the allegations are proven true, it is the current LIE that matters more than a bad deed by a 17yr old!!!!!
It wouldn’t hurt to add (for the hypocritical Christian right’s benefit) “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.” Proverbs 12:22

Kiwi,
The media IS frustrating! They follow the “sexiest” most sensational narratives, often based on false assumptions rather than more fruitful narratives which actually serve the public. We mustn’t forget they too are corporations without conscience.

Pluto in Capricorn affects them too!

“This is a time to look back at all the things and people we have to be thankful for. It is also a time to take stock of ourselves, and see how much we have grown and changed throughout the year.”

silcominc,
You are very welcome.

It is easy for we Americans to be naïve re: our politics. We have our ups and downs, but since the civil war and reconstruction period we’ve had relative stability, especially compared to many other nations.

It is difficult for us to imagine our elected and/or appointed leaders acting in bad faith, much less committing and/or colluding with treason. But, here it is.

pass it on . . . . .
“Why the rush? Does the country really want to risk the possibility that its newest supreme court justice might later be proven to be a blatant sinful liar? ”

No wonder there is apathy – too many accepting the fact that leaders of society lie. There is a deep sickness within when lying becomes OK.

I echo your comment, silcominc, on Eliseo’s post. Eliseo, your summary was masterful. Thanks so much!

connimac,
Our situation is both very scary and quite saddening. This “gate” makes watergate, the teapot dome scandal, the several stolen elections, and all the other “gates” all put together seem like a pleasant picnic in the park on a nice comfortable spring day.

I hope/pray barbk and Andre’s views are correct, that we will get through this, and the experience will both strengthen and renew our democracy.

Thank You for your kind words. I hope my analysis clarifies our understanding of what is at stake for all in this community. Glad to be (hopefully) of some help.

Eliseo, I too want to thank you for your comment re: Mueller’s investigation on the “spider’s web of treason”. Right now transiting Arachne (web maker) and Teharonhiawako (whom I call “the good twin” who combats evil) and Neptune are all conjunct in Pisces and all are retrograde. They oppose Mueller’s natal Mercury in Virgo and square his natal Uranus in Gemini. (No surprises there) They also trine the US natal Sun in Cancer.

This might be a lead on understanding the complexity Mueller faces; the “good” mixed with the “fogginess” trapped within a complex web takes time to unravel. I will keep my eye on that.

Andre, I’m glad the Sabian symbol was helpful to you. With your planetary setup you have a finger on the pulse of the US natal chart’s Moon and Pluto and I doubt that’s just a coincidence. As goes the Country, so goes Andre.
🙂

I keep trying to post this so I apologize if it turns up as multiple posts.

As you probably already know, Ford accepted the invitation to testify next week (as I knew she would). She must have met the 2:30 p.m. ET deadline given to her. Politico published the news at 2:45 p.m.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/09/22/kavanaugh-accuser-accepts-senate-judiciary-committees-request-to-testify-836452

I read that she is going to drive cross country from CA to DC which will take her 3 days. Possibly that is for privacy purposes.

Marjorie Orr wrote this today about Stephen King’s chart. He has a natal Saturn-Pluto conjunction:

«Saturn Pluto is drawn to the dark side – Pluto, lord of the underworld and Saturn, the grim reaper, combining to focus interest not just on the worst side of humanity; but also, in its guise as the black magician, to connect to fantasy and the supernatural. All of that channelled through his driving planet Mercury.»

The Eighties were dark not only because of that conjunction in 1982-83, but also because Pluto entered its own dark sign of Scorpio in 1984. On the plus side, we had the Stephen King and Harry Potter novels.

This time, the conjunction will be followed by Pluto’s entry into Aquarius, a more hopeful sign, but we must remember every sign has its positive and negative sides.

Barbk, I am touched by your very kind words. I hope to be of service in this difficult time.

Sharon K, I believe Dr. Ford is driving because she has a fear of flying, which appears to be tied to the assault she endured in 1982. She apparently insisted on an exit outside for every room in the new house her husband built. An airplane for her is the ultimate enclosed space. She has been wounded by her experience.

Transiting Sedna in late Taurus has been square the US Moon for years. It is a very slow-moving asteroid. Sedna is about female trauma inflicted by a powerful male that is deeply felt by the people of the United States (the Moon). But the myth of Sedna (a horrifying and cruel tale of Inuit origin) is also about a great increase in female power at a much deeper level. I haven’t seen Dr. Ford’s chart, but it probably somehow ties into this. I only know she is a Sagittarius with Moon in Gemini born at the Uranus-Pluto conjunction of 1966, which means her Sun and Moon were both square Saturn-Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is finishing this year its first return to Pisces since that time, which probably brings up emotional pain but gives her the opportunity to heal and to help others. These planets resonate with me as my own Mars at 27 Pisces near my IC was deeply hurt during my childhood at the time. It is time for both of us to speak.

One final word. I have natal Saturn at 19 Scorpio conjunct Lilith (the black Moon) at 23 Scorpio square Pluto at 26 Leo and the Moon at 28 Leo. I know all about the dark side in myself and others. I’ve been there. As my own mother is now slowly dying (the Moon) while in her third Saturn return (she was born in a Saturn-Pluto opposition in a T-square with Uranus in Aries), I have to forgive both her dark side (I have long considered her dark) and my own, while my siblings stay away. This a time of great and powerful healing, and I deeply empathize with Dr. Ford, who I hope will do many women and some men much good.

barbk,
Thanks for your appreciation. I had no idea my “spider’s web of treason” metaphor was so astrologically appropriate! Many Thanks for all that you contribute here.

Sharon,
Good to see you post again. here’s hoping you had a good Rosh Hashanah.

I’ve done that drive. It is well over 2800 miles from Palo Alto to WA. DC. Three days is really pushing it. Four or Five is far more reasonable unless she has a couple of people taking turns driving her 24 hours a day.

Also, the lady has a pretty impressive academic background and has published a number of important psych papers. I’m guessing she is very articulate and the committee R’s will regret ever having placed themselves in the position of being her adversary.

Andre, thanks for the explanation. It makes so much sense. What is not being talked about enough in mainstream media, imho, is the fact that male physical strength, especially when the person is an athlete (which Kavanaugh was) can be extremely intimidating. Mark Judge’s quote about “the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion” only serves to reinforce that impression. It is not just a frat party, teenage boys will be boys, women know what they are getting into when they are drinking and go into a room alone with a male situation. There is a line that is crossed when someone subjects a woman to being force against their will and he obviously crossed it. The problem might be that its her word against his (unless first- or second-hand witnesses come forth and, even better, other accusers). Even if that is the case, I agree that her testimony will be articulate and convincing. I am wondering if it will be televised.

Eliseo, thank you. My Yom Kippur was a bit challenging but I got through it and felt better afterword (sometimes I actually enjoy it and feel a strong and spiritual while going through it). I must confess that I snuck a look at the online news re Dr. Ford and Kavanaugh during it. I have been following all of yours and everyone else’s posts here and appreciating the quality while commenting briefly some times.

Andre,
Thank you for some of the information on Dr. Ford and her challenges with flying and such due to the resulting trauma she has experienced. I wonder why we are not hearing about this in the main stream media. It puts more of her requests into understandable perspective.

“The fate of his nomination and the Senate’s treatment of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who said Saturday she was willing to testify in the coming week, have the makings of a pivot point in American politics”

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/22/us/politics/kavanaugh-blasey-ford-women-trump.html

As of right now, a “tentative deal has been reached for Dr. Blasey to testify on Thursday, the circumstances of which are still under discussion.

“tentative deal”

I have now seen Dr. Ford’s chart on Marjorie Orr’s site. The time was set for noon on the West Coast for some reason. I believe she was born in D.C. Still there is much information there. Her Moon is in a tight T-square with the Saturn-Chiron conjunction opposite the Uranus-Pluto of that era. Her Mercury, interestingly, had just stationed direct in Scorpio. Her current Chiron return reactivated her T-square.

There are compelling articles about her life and that of Mark Judge in the Washington Post. She was described as a bright and witty girl before the trauma (Moon in Gemini) but afterwards she dropped out of sight for some years and reinvented herself in California. One of her two master’s degrees was on the relation between trauma and depression. She was so upset by Kavanaugh’s nomination that she considered moving to New Zealand. She tried to stay far away from Kavanaugh until she couldn’t.

If she is as articulate as she can be and stands up to the pressure, I think he can say goodbye to the Supreme Court. The fallout from her testimony could be incalculable.

Interestingly, Dr. Fprd’s Mars 27+ Virgo (and Kavanaugh’s Mars at 26+ Virgo rx) trine transiting Sedna (27+ Taurus) and the US natal Pluto (27+ Capricorn), symbol of transformation.

It could be that this grand trine symbolizes that it’s finally time to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) so that the US Constitution clearly states that women have complete equal rights to men.

Back in 1776 when the US was born, the Super Galactic Center (a black hole) was located at 27+ Virgo (it is now at 1+ Libra and conjunct the US natal chart’s MC [achievements]). The Super Galactic Center has an extraordinary power of attraction and at this momentous time of change, women are more involved (and more powerful) than even in the ’60’s.

I suspect this Kavanaugh-Ford showdown (tied to the US natal chart’s SGC) will galvanize American women to not only vote for women rep’s, but demand that the ERA finally become part of the US Constitution.

The US Constitution birth chart has Juno (unequal partner) at 27+ Gemini square Dr. Ford’s (and Kavanaugh’s) natal Mars as well as the US chart’s (and the Constitution’s chart) SGC.

The Constitution chart’s Juno also trines the US natal chart’s Moon at 27+ Aquarius (being squared by transiting Sedna at 27+ Taurus) and trans. Venus + Ceres + Moon (27+ Libra) on midterm election day.

Sedna symbolizes not only respect for women (or else!), she specifically represents abused women. She is also one of several symbols related to the global warming (climate change) awareness movement.

barbk,
Here’s hoping you are correct. The ERA should have been passed and become part of our Constitution long ago. No one is talking about it now, but perhaps with the astrology aspects coming within the next ten years we can make it happen. Sign me up!
