Like a bad dream running over and over again, these horrific stampedes occur in India on a regular basis (last one on August 3, 2008). India and the places like Chamunda Devi temple, at the southern edge of the 15th-century Mehrangarh fort can become places of death and ecstasy. In India, where a nine-day festivals like Navratra that celebrates the nine incarnations of the Hindu mother goddess Durga occur. The last major stampede occurred on August 3rd 2008 in Bilaspur, India when Mars was applying to a wicked opposition with Uranus (exact on August 6th) right after the historic Solar Eclipse August 1, 2008. The eclipse path put the eclipse in the 8th house, with Mars and Uranus opposition were active. The August 3rd. tragedy was another sacred nine-day festival to celebrate Shravan Navratras,that honors the Hindu goddess Shakrti, or divine mother. All incarnations of the Divine Mother or Kali-Ma are angry to say the least considering how humans are treating this planet!
Still all for many of us are now feeling DejaVu rather psychic feelings, spiritual revelations from the Mercury-Neptune trines in September and October
Sun, Moon, Mercury and Mars all in Libra in the first in hard aspect to Jupiter reflected this second tragic stampede in the Jodphur. Jupiter which is about expanded religiousity
is intercepted in the 4th house which signfies the foundation or base of the society and its traditions or the folk-soul.
The chart above shows critical mutable degrees (29*) at the angles and Pluto the incarnate of Shiva and Kali almost exactly at the IC.
Chiron near N Node of destiny in the 5th house of celebrations and festivals is closely opposed both S. Node and Ceres in Leo (letting of adulation) in the collective, group orientation in the 11th. Also to note that the Mega Saturn-Uranus Opposition sits in the 12th and 6th houses respectively reflecting so many injuries from being involved in spiritual ceremonies.
Television footage showed dead pilgrims strewn on the narrow walkway about 150 yards from the Chamunda Devi temple, at the southern edge of the 15th-century Mehrangarh fort in Jodphur, in the western state of Rajasthan. It was the second deadly religious tragedy in the past few months in India, where pilgrim stampedes are not uncommon.

$700B bailout plan breaks apart; talks to continue
With Moon direct in Leo sextile both Mercury and Mars drama is high as is Meda Coverage.
Moon was Opposing Neptune exact at 7:25 PM EDT causing more confusion and delay...
WASHINGTON - Urgent efforts to lash together a $700 billion rescue plan for the national economy broke apart Thursday night, hours after key lawmakers had declared they had reached a deal.
Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke sped to Capitol Hill to try to revive or rework the proposal that the administration says must be quickly approved by Congress to stave off economic disaster.
Congressional leaders were to meet with the economic chiefs into the night.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Key members of Congress claimed agreement Thursday on an outline and crucial details of an urgent multibillion-dollar plan to stave off national economic disaster, but a historic White House meeting with President Bush, the two men fighting to replace him and other congressional leaders broke up with conflicts in plain view.
After six days of intensive talks on the $700 billion package urgently requested by the Bush administration, with Wall Street tottering and the presidential election nearing, there was more confusion than clarity.
A tentative accord in principle among influential Democratic and Republican lawmakers was announced at midday, giving the Bush administration just a fraction of the money it wanted up front, with half the $700 billion total subject to a congressional veto, congressional aides said.
But conservatives were still in revolt, balking at the astonishing price tag of the proposal and the heavy hand of government that it would place on private markets. Sen. Richard Shelby of Alabama, the top Republican on the Senate Banking Committee, emerged from the White House meeting to say the announced agreement "is obviously no agreement."
Both of Congress' Republican leaders, Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell, also denied there was any deal. And the White House called the earlier announcement progress but also said it was reviewing the outline with more work needed to finalize a bill for Congress to rush into law.
There is wide agreement the U.S. economy is in peril, with financial institutions going under or near the edge and recession looming along with the resulting layoffs and increased home foreclosures.
There had been hopes for broad agreement, too, on a prescription by now, with a confident White House announcement by the president, John McCain, Barack Obama and congressional leaders.
But the best McConnell would say afterward was, "It's clear that more progress is needed and we must continue to work together quickly to protect our economy."
One group of House GOP lawmakers circulated an alternative that would put much less focus on a government takeover of failing institutions' sour assets. This proposal would have the government provide insurance to companies that agree to hold frozen assets, rather than have the government purchase the assets. Rep Eric Cantor, R-Va., said the idea would be to remove the burden of the bailout from taxpayers and place it, over time, on Wall Street instead.
Democrat Obama and Republican McCain, who have both sought to distance themselves from the unpopular Bush, sat down with the president at the White House for an hourlong afternoon session that was striking in this brutally partisan season — but also, according to one participant, "a full-throated discussion." By also including Congress' Democratic and Republican leaders, the meeting gathered nearly all Washington's political power structure at one long table in a small West Wing room.
"All of us around the table ... know we've got to get something done as quickly as possible," Bush told reporters, brought in for only the start of the meeting. Obama and McCain were at distant ends of the oval table, not even in each other's sight lines. Bush, playing host in the middle, was flanked by Congress' two Democratic leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
All the visitors left the White House without talking to a huge media group.
Under the accord announced hours earlier among key lawmakers, the Treasury secretary would get $250 billion immediately and could have an additional $100 billion if he certified it was needed, an approach designed to give lawmakers a stronger hand in controlling the unprecedented rescue. Aides described the details on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
The plan's centerpiece still is for the government to buy the toxic, mortgage-based assets of shaky financial institutions in a bid to keep them from going under and setting off a cascade of ruinous events, including wiped-out retirement savings, rising home foreclosures, closed businesses, and lost jobs.
The Bush administration has made near-daily concessions to demands from the right and the left, among them a limit on pay for executives of bailed-out financial institutions and an equity stake in rescued companies for the government.
Despite the Republican outcry, Banking Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn., and Republican Sen. Bob Bennett, among others, said the negotiators from Congress and the administration had arrived at a deal that could win approval. Other key lawmakers said that after days of bare-knuckles negotiations there was little of note left to resolve.
Wall Street showed its pleasure — but the markets closed before the White House meeting and before the negative Republican comments started piling up. The Dow Jones industrials closed some 196 points higher, though that was down from larger gains earlier in the day.
Despite the national prominence of Bush, McCain and Obama, none has been deeply involved in this week's scramble to hammer out a package.

"Dirty tricks" McCain suspends campaign today Sept. 24th to work on Bailout - yeah right?
This happens as Mercury Retrograde transits his first house (look at chart for Mercury station retrograde.
We should expect that the current Bailout plan will be delayed, changed, revised and probably not totally completed till Oct. 15th when Mercury stations direct again.
Venus enters Scorpio to meet his natal Pallas (strategy in politics) for more hidden agendas.
Saturn which is about delays, blocks and structure is moving closer to his natal idealistic, nebulous Neptune in Virgo
Will we even have elections, that is the question?..
McCain suspends campaign to work on Wall Street plan | U.S. | Reuters
Fast forward to his announcement to take a more active roll in negotiating the bailout, the move now comfortably in Leo heading near McCain's Mars at 12 degrees Leo...
Notice this article from the elite mouthpiece the Washington Post - Candidates have Negotiators Wary
"Democrats reacted angrily to the Republican presidential nominee's attempt yesterday to inject himself into the negotiations over the legislation."
The spin is spun as the supposed "Maverick McCain" is looking like some kind of patriot to the sheeple. So Barack is in checkmate and must participate (Pallas in Scorpio is tricky, devious and backhanded when in John McCain's hands)
"But with tempers still flaring, Sen. Barack Obama, the Democratic nominee, appeared to quiet the controversy with his announcement last night that after consulting with President Bush, he, too, will be in Washington today"
Remember as we look at the chart above transiting Saturn is quickly moving towards a meeting with McCain's Neptune @ 16 degrees Virgo (Sabian Symbol - A volcano in eruption)
Even more telling is that McCain's natal Moon @ 27 Capricorn 02 is close to the US Foundation-Sibley Chart for July 4, 1776 adding to the whole idea of deconstruction
for the country if this dude wins.
At the same time that McCain made his announcement today around 2:30 PM EDT - Sarah the Barracuda was being interviewed by Katie Couric.
For Palin, Mercury-Mars and Venus were transiting her 3rd house of communications especially with electronic media. She was the double talking charmer who equivocated
in her defense of McCain and even the bailout.
So here we have the Mercury RX - Mars connection at 23 Libra trining Ms. Palin's bad ass Stellium of Sun-Mars-Saturn in Aquarius giving her game and temporary advantage.

It won't be the first time or last that we astrologers about Nov. 4th election
when the historic Saturn Opposition to Uranus which is already
creating chaos. We sure as hell don't need Obama or McCain to provide the impetus for change as our economic system melts almost as fast as Greenland's coastal glaciers.
Per the chart of above set for 6 AM when polls open back east, voting day should host multiple astrological aspects as an adaptable nature dominated by 180 degree angles.
First of all we not only have powerful TSQ's with both Saturn and Uranus the apex of
a close opposition of Pallas now retrograde in Gemini to Venus in Sagittarius applying to a conjucntion with Pluto on Nov. 12th in the last degrees of Sagittarius to start the dawn of the Mayan Sixth Day. Moving back to Election day we also have a Grand Mutable Cross, a Grand Trine in Earth, a Mighty Thors Hammer and a Kite. The premiere aspect has Saturn @ 18 Virgo 57 exactly opposing Uranus @ 18 Pisces 57.
Radical Election Crazier then 2000
This years elections will be without the Mercury retrograde factor which drove chad hunters
crazy in the Gore-Bush debacle.
According to Mary Pat Flaherty who writes in the Washington Post - Election Day Could Be a Mess
Worries over registration surge, failure-prone equipment, new procedures - reflections of both Saturn regarding procedures and registration and Uranus when it comes to election software.
This year Faced with a surge in voter registrations leading up to Nov. 4, election officials across the country are bracing for long lines, equipment failures and confusion over polling procedures that could cost thousands the chance to cast a ballot.
When it comes to picking the next president of the US, it may actually take those 100+ hours of horary analysis.
I am not so sure that McCain will win since this is going to be one of the most radical and unusual election in US history.
*On November 4th the polls open with Moon VOC in Capricorn then at 7:01 PM EST the Moon will ingress into Aquarius...
*Mercury will changes signs into Scorpio @ 11 AM EST which will cross into Obama's 9th house cusp during the voting.
*Moon will conjunct Obama's natal Jupiter @ 00 Aquarius 51 - the people may see Obama has the "more benefic influence"
as opposed to the more restrictive influence of McCain the old man.
Acceptance Charts and Anomalies
Even thought I am an avid follower of Ray Merriman, he bases his prediction for a McCain victory on the acceptance chart at RNC
set for September 4, at 9:20 PM, CDST, in St. Paul, MN, in his latest weekly preview.
I began looking again at Obama's acceptance chart set for Aug. 28 2008 at 8:17 PM MDT in Denver. attached with email.
Unquestionably the Obama Acceptance Chart perhaps more difficult to interpret with Uranus-Pisces on Ascendant and ancient ruler Jupiter in the 10th
Pluto right on MC in Sagittarius at Galactic Center talks of a historic nomination on a much larger scale. Having what was not traditionally a good omen highest in the chart's South also signfies major transformation if he does win. From a purely positive side Obama's acceptance time has Jupiter the ruler is sitting in the 10th to indicate expansion of thought for Barack's position as the US economy contracts.
Mercury is the most dignified planet at an angle is in the 7th and dignified in Virgo - Note that Mercury is the ruler of Obama's natal Mars @ 22 Virgo which opposed the destructive Full Moon on Sept. 15th Obama's Mars is also
found in the 7th of "one of his Natal versions" set for Aug. 4th @ 7:24 PM in Honolulu
Of course in a natal chart, Mars in 7th and in Virgo reflects open enemies thoughout life
who use a conservative, prudently run operation to dethrone the Bush-McCain Iran-Contra alumnus. Take note: in this recent article by Paul Martens about the old Iran Contra Gang, Robert M. Gates, currently the Secretary of Defense hails from On December 6, 2006, the United States Senate voted 95-2 to confirm Mr. Gates, despite the fact that he occupies a full chapter, Chapter 16, in the “Final Report of the Independent Counsel for Iran/Contra Matters...Despite his murky history, Gates was recycled as Director of the CIA by President George H.W. Bush in 1991, who, let’s not forget, was also a former Director of the CIA.
Unfortunately with the Palin variable, the Inauguration Day chart set for January 20, 2009 at 12 PM in DC tends to favor Palin
with an Aquarian Stellium sitting in the 10th...
I have only began my analysis but hesitate to concede a complete take over by the elite, afterall the sixth day begins on Nov. 12, 2008 and lots can happen!

Maybe you have been watching markets around the world plunge into deep black holes since Monday's Full Moon. This was a lunation happening right after Friday's deadly Sun-Uranus Opposition (train crash in LA and Russian plane crash). On Monday's Full Moon, the Moon was conjunct Uranus @ 5:13 AM EDT transferring all those Friday shock waves to Wall Street. First financial shocker: we find out that Bank of America was buying Merrill Lynch for 50 billion dollars in stock, scooping up the Wall Street icon battered by the housing and credit crisis. The B of A deal was not just a white knight coming into rescue In fact unknown to a lot of American citizens On Sunday, a rare emergency trading session opened in New York to allow Wall Street dealers in the $455 trillion derivatives market to reduce their exposure to a potential bankruptcy filing by Lehman. Lehman was our second shockwave... WTF is going on you might ask? How can their be special sessions for the elitefinanciers and traders - maybe the fact that Sun is applying to a SQ with Pluto might reveal some of those who have been manipulating our markets for years.
By 2:39 PM PDT yesterday a fiery Aries moon came into the picture. With an Aries Moon the fire signs like Fed Chief, Ben Shalom Bernanke (Sagittarius) and Henry Merritt "Hank" Paulson Jr. (born March 28, 1946 Aries) and head of Treasury got goint. It appeared that this dynamic duo was going to everything they can to prop up the markets.
They want to save AIG but it won't work in the long run. The aftermath of Monday's Full Moon with shocking Uranus-near the Moon was a 504 Point drop in the Dow.
Starting with the last first, let's look at some Career Highlights of this white knight in an episode I call regarding Paulson.
Paulson was Staff Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of Defense at The Pentagon from 1970 to 1972. He then worked for the administration of U.S. President Richard Nixon, serving as assistant to John Ehrlichman from 1972 to 1973.
He joined Goldman Sachs in 1974, working in the firm's Chicago office. He became a partner in 1982. From 1983 until 1988, Paulson led the Investment Banking group for the Midwest Region, and became managing partner of the Chicago office in 1988. From 1990 to November 1994, he was co-head of Investment Banking, then, Chief Operating Officer from December 1994 to June 1998; eventually succeeding Jon Corzine (now Governor of New Jersey) as its chief executive. His compensation package, according to reports, was US$37 million in 2005, and US$16.4 million projected for 2006. His net worth has been estimated at over $700 million.
After the market's closed up today, news came out that Treasury Said to Be Considering AIG Conservatorship. This sounds like a "HanK" Paulson Jr. plan.
Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Treasury is considering taking over American International Group Inc. under a conservatorship as one option to address the insurer's crisis, according to two people briefed on the discussions.
Cardinal signs especially those with major TSQ's or even a Grand Cross like Henry Paulson, want to do things right away
to change, fix or ameliorate the current crisis. Hank Paulson Jr. has not only an Aries Sun but Venus @ 20 degrees effecting
his basic orientation to $$ and relationships. Turns out that natally Hank's Venus in Aries is TSQ a defensive, protective Saturn-Mars conjunction in Cancer and a Chiron-Jupiter stellium in Libra. If that wasn't enough to want to keep the old corporate masters going we throw in a natal Pallas in Capricorn @ 12 degrees dealing with defending law and order in the form of infrastructure.
You got the picture, Henry will keep plugging the holes in the dam the old fashioned way take it over.
Interesting to look at the transits from yesterday's Full Moon including a Jupiter transit (beliefs-idiologies) and Venus opposing his
natal Jupiter and conflicting with his nasty Mars-Saturn conjunction.
Maybe kids will be wearing Henry Paulson masks for Halloween!

The Harvest Moon in Pisces the Mystical 22 Degree
Libra Trines Demand Karmic Choices
In a time of wild imagination, the title Harvest Moon reflects more then Indian lore and a time when it will be more then corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice-- the chief Indian staples--are now ready for gathering. Neptune has been pushing wild scenarios including that souls being retrieved on Oct. 14th by the Galactic Federation Of Light - Supposedly a 2,000 Mile Long Craft Will Appear on Oct 14th 2008 over Alabama
As you can see people are grasping at any wild fantasy to not face the inevitable especially with Neptune so prominent.
Financial Meltdowns is on the horizon the Full Moon and they are scary for the average person. Saturn-Sun in first house of the chart above opposing manic Uranus-Moon in unstable Pisces...The facts are present Lehman Brothers’ decision to file bankruptcy and worries that American International Group could become the next casualty of the credit crisis. Bank of America rapidly organized an acquisition of Merrill Lynch, which was negotiated in 48 hours over the weekend,
Tomorrow's full moon stimulates wild visions, future planning, and vision questing with Mercury-Libra exactly trine Neptune on 9-17-08. The rising degree for the chart set for DC @ 2 Virgo relates to the Sabian Symbol: Two angels bringing protection. Also Venus in Libra also to be exactly trine mystical Neptune ruler of this Mooon along with Jupiter on Sept. 19th. Romance, ideals of justice and righting indiscretions of legal systems add to the this time which also favors retreat, closure, spirituality and inspiration. Then the whopper is Mars exact trine to Neptune when their may even be military attacks others for reasons of ideology or beliefs. I am getting ahead of myself but with Arcturus culminating as Jupiter is Rising known to signify a person who is seen as a brave or bold leader and with Mars-Neptune in positive aspect we may leadership emerges dramatically and offers a global solution.
Materializing Mediums from Palin to More
On September 15th @ 5:13 AM EDT a Full Moon occurs at 22 Pisces 54 is the degree of the materializing medium. The Sabian Symbol for 23 Pisces per Martin Goldsmith on page 353 of The Zodiac by Degrees "The wife of a fallen general springing up from his body, delivers a stirring speech to his comrades and then leads them into battle." Sarah Heath Palin (born Feb. 11, 1964) is right in the middle of this Full Moon as she was during the new moon. Palin's Sun @ 22 Aquarius is involved in a mutual reception to ruler Uranus in Pisces - especially with Neptune now transiting at the same degree adding to her mystique - more on this later has an almost I have also said that her exact Chiron-Pluto opposition from Pisces to Virgo. I have described connected to divination, channeling, and atavistic traits that reappear after disappearing generations ago. Sun @ 22 Aquarius is involved in a mutual reception especially with Neptune now transiting at the same degree adding to her mystique - more on this later. The leader indicated by Artcurus could also be Obama who has his Mars @ 22 Virgo opposing the Full Moon. Obabma also has a similar opposition from Chiron-Pisces (Victim Savior) to Pluto but not as close as Palin.
On this lunation when 22º halos often encircle the moon. The symbolism of this master degree is about causes or ideologies can survive death and even generatison . Sometimes these causes can been a total re-education process where a misguided public are goaded into taking that giant step, or evolutionary leap. The ruling elite are pushing for another giant step involving control. I indicated earlier that this leap forward would involve the balancing of the currently dominant left-brain with the incoming right brain representing a kind of intuitive medium ship. Palin s unquestionably an concious medium who hates being a puppet but goes along with the game to finish the take over of the US.
The theme of water in all its forms are really strong during this Full Moon as we see the same Heliacal Rising Star is Alphard as the Virgo New Moon on August 3toh. Alphard is known the Water Serpent and can be about leadin g a life close to the edge. Edgy is a good word to describe many of us. Just as seething with anger or passion might paint a picture of others. Alphard is also connected to seeking intense emotional encounters
According Ebertin-Hoffmann in Fixed Stars page 50: "Alphard is of a Saturnian nature with a measure of influence from Venus and Neptune." Alphard is definitely a malefic influence and Ebertin-Hoffman goes on to say that it maybe connected to poison - blood poisoning or murder by poison. Alphard was also the Heliacal rising star during the 2001 WTC event.
We are currently separating from devastation Sun-Uranus Oppositon on Sept. 12th setting up for Sun opposes in Virgo and is applying to a Square with Pluto emphasizing power struggles - power-brokering, quarrels, and other turbulent conditions...
This is not only about causes that survive death but a total re-education process where a misguided public are goaded into taking that giant step, or evolutionary leap. I indicated earlier that this leap forward would involve the balancing of the currently dominant left-brain with the incoming right brain representing a kind of intuitive medium ship.
Alchemy and ISIS/OSIRIS
Hurricane IKE has scattered all the pieces of the chessboard. A breaking story from Duke Energy reported that more than 760,000 customers lost power Sunday due to storm damage. CINCINNATI -- As the remnants of Hurricane Ike roll across the country wreaking havoc... Unexpected, highly uranian deadly accidents also created a sort of aftermath-harvest. dismembering from massive injuries, 25 dead from a train wreck of major proportions in Chatsworh to ISIS-OSIRIS of myth. "Set found Osiris' coffin, took his body out, and dismembered him into 13 parts, scattering them across the land of Egypt. Each part represented one of the 13 full moons (each year has 12 or 13 full moons"
created scattered injuries from a train wreck of major proportions in Chatsworh.
Alchemy was known as the spagyric art after Greek words meaning to separate and to join together. Compare this with the primary dictum of Alchemy in Latin: SOLVE ET COAGULA — Separate, and Join Together. Isis of Egyptian myth relates well to the alchemical Virgo. Isis found the pieces of her dismembered husband Osiris and she was able to find and put together 12 of the 13 parts. Since Isis was unable to find the 13th, his penis, which was eaten by the oxyrhynchus fish (a fish with an unusual curved snout resembling depictions of Set). Instead, she fashioned a phallus out of gold and sang a song around Osiris until he came back to life. Much raising of life, consciousness and spirit will be seen on this Full Moon - remember Osiris was resurrected. So it was that Isis conceived Horus. Due to this experience, Osiris became Lord of the Dead, and the Afterlife.
Inspired by the Mars-Mercury-Venus stellium in Libra now trine Chiron-N Node and Neptune in Aquarius, we are taking up the baton of the alchemists and bringing about this synthesis on many levels. Singularly important from an alchemical mundane perspective is that this Full Moon/Uranus relates to the US Chart. This aspect makes a TSQ with the US Chart's destructive Neptune SQ Mars in Gemini. This historic aspect has been a motivator for empire building via warfare for over two hundred
The Virgo-Pisces axis is accented in the full moon chart (Virgo rising) as Sun-Saturn sit in the first and Moon-Uranus in the 7th at angles of receptivity. In esoteric astrology, the moon is the ruler of Virgo and being close to Uranus in this chart puts an emphasis on the collective freeing itself from the victim mentality and embracing the unconscious mind.

Lives in the Balance by Jackson Brown
On the radio talk shows and the t.v.
You hear one thing again and again
How the u.s.a. stands for freedom
And we come to the aid of a friend
But who are the ones that we call our friends--
These governments killing their own?
Or the people who finally can't take any more
And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone
There are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
In a city named after the apostle Paul, the father of misogyny, what do you expect from the Reptilathugs?
Greetings from a fascist state right at the the highlight of the RNC Convention. This was an evening when Jupiter sat at MidHeaven in a totally expanded, conservative, iron jawed, nation of laws above the spirit of humanity. Aries rising with Mars-Libra SQ Jupiter sitting in the 6th house which rules the armed forces and the police as well as issues concerning national defense.
Other Libran planets reflecting the delicate balance of lives under duress for asking to be heard are Mercury-Venus both applying to a conflicting SQ with Jupiter-the law giver.
What would you expect from a party led by a hot headed 72 year old hypocrite? More appropriately a convention held in a town named after a church patriarch, with statements attributed to him (St. Paul): I Timothy 2--that women were created second, sinned first, and should keep silence?
Or more appropriate in the context of charges filed against protestors this week in violation of the 2002 Minnesota version of the Federal Patriot Act:
"For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law, and do them." (Gal. 3:10).
Chart below has two Grand Crosses of definitive crisis forming - one is a mutable cross
involving Sun-Saturn in Virgo from sixth house opposing Uranus in the 12th...crossed by
Pallas-Gemini (strategy of words) in the second opposing Juno-Sagittarius (political partnership). The other more lasting cross is fixed and has been creating deep change in the US and the world: Vesta-Taurus (unwavering focus-commitment) opposing Moon-Astrae (justice) in Scorpio crossed by Chiron-N Node in Aquarius (collective destiny of wounding) opposing S Node in Leo (executive power from the past).

RNC 8 Charged with “Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism”
So Now We have the St. Paul or Minniapolis 8.
In what appears to be the first use of criminal charges under the 2002 Minnesota version of the Federal Patriot Act, Ramsey County Prosecutors have formally charged 8 alleged leaders of the RNC Welcoming Committee with Conspiracy to Riot in Furtherance of Terrorism. Monica Bicking, Eryn Trimmer, Luce Guillen Givins, Erik Oseland, Nathanael Secor, Robert Czernik, Garrett Fitzgerald, and Max Spector, face up to 7 1/2 years in prison under the terrorism enhancement charge which allows for a 50% increase in the maximum penalty.
Then tonight right before McCain's fight them for your country speech, the empire's dark guard arrested protestors along with representatives of the press. McCain's reflecting his own natal Mars-Leo in the 10th Square Uranus in house of open enemies the 7th - both at quite volatile and aggressive angles. When he said:
“Fight with me. Fight for what’s right for our country. Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.”
ST. PAUL, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Police arrested 250 anti-war protesters on Thursday shortly before John McCain accepted the Republican presidential nomination at the party's convention a short distance away.

With God On Our Side
Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its side.
Pluto ends it's last void of course phase in Sagittarius (for a long time). Sagittarius is the sign of religious beliefs, stories of truths and visions. Jupiter ruler of Sagittarius is the ancient ruler of Pisces. You might say that when Pluto is void of course many leaders display outright power. This is a time when true compassion, tolerance and patience are pushed aside in favor of drastic actions. Pluto void is really a description that we are only has sick as our secrets. On Sept. 8th Pluto stations direct bringing with him a host of natural destruction as Hurricane Hanna creates havoc in Haiti, Ike and Josephine following in the Atlantic. Pluto then quickly moves into Capricorn, sign of authority-governmenton November 26th just 22 days after the election.
The very next day Uranus stations direct @ 18 Pisces 44 for some shocking changes to all those true believers and faith-based constituents.
Sarah personifies the Sabian Symbol for 19 Pisces: "A beautiful and charismatic woman exhorts a crowd of citizens to settle their differences and rebuild a tumbledown cathedral." In this case she is preaching to her followers using natural persuasiveness and passionate pronouncements getting all the various evangelicals, crusaders together.
Currently transiting Jupiter in Capricorn is applying toward a square to her natal Jupiter in Aries which is bound to offer an expansion of confidence and even a bit of arrogance.
Jupiter, next year will be moving thru her Mercury-Moon-Mars-Sun-Mars-Saturn will mean an even more expansive role in government in 2009.
Palin says Iraq war is 'task from God' - UPI.com
Now I have to say that I do agree that we should pray for protection of not just our troops but the millions of people in Iraq, Palestine and the rest of the Middle East that have felt the wrath of warlike Yehovah.
When people of any race, culture, political belief think they have "God on Their Side" there is no trying to convince them of social justice or what is really happening.
By the time Jupiter transits thru the most conservative of all signs Capricorn, and enters Aquarius on January 2009, the masses will start to awaken to the spirit of revolution and real change.
Chart Below is BiWheel with Sarah's natal inner wheel and start of Nov. 4th election
on outside wheel. The mighty Saturn-Uranus opposition is transiting the 2nd-8th houses for Sarah Palin - personal values vs. other's values. Chart shows her Venus in the assertive, independent sign of Aries to be transited by Pluto in rigid,overly strict Capricorn in early 2009 and Saturn-Uranus in 2010.
Note: chart below shows Moon on election day in rather uptight, Capricorn moving over her natal Vesta with disciplined and structured qualities also in the sign of the goat.
Undoubtedly, the Moon which represents the people, their emotions and especially women
will empathize with Sarah's dedication to work in an administrative leadership form.
Sarah will be a big asset to the old man, McCain as he rides the Saturnian power of Jupiter in Capricorn.

Religion and perception of one's faith will play a huge part in the upcoming election on Nov. 4th with Saturn-Virgo (Authority-Rules) Opposing Uranus-Pisces (Freedom in Religion)
For the Republicans and McCain the selection of Sarah Heath Palin will probably sway many of not only the evangelicals but multiple faith based groups in the US.
That ole geezer (sorry great war hero) McCain with natal Venus @ 22 Virgo sitting right on the US Sibley Chart's Neptune is riding high as America's birth chart's planet of idealism-illusion won't be able to see the forest for the trees in the General Election.
More about Sarah Palin's religion by Bob Smietana, the religion writer for
The Tennessean, has been exchanging e-mails with me as we both set out on the hunt. He says: "Looks like she's a charismatic, or charismatic leaning, if her home congregation is Church on The Rock.
Thanks to Eric Francis and Claudia Dikinis, a friend of Sarah Palin's, via Margie Herskovitz from NCGR we have currently recognized time of birth (4:40 PM) Sarah has Leo rising @ 19 Degrees Sabian Symbol: American Indians perform a majestic ritual in the sun. Her ascendant is trine Jupiter in fiery cardinal Aries @ 16 degrees in the 9th house of religion/philosphy. Jupiter in the leadership sign of Aries with the Sabian Symbol "Two prim sisters sitting together in silence." will
literally ram her belief system right into the mainstream.
You might say that she is charismatic in the traditional public and social terminology.
Perhaps a bit more disturbing is this blog entry from Daily Kos
Sarah Palin: Dominionist Stalking Horse
Daily Kos: State of the Nation
There are quite a number of extremely troubling links between Sarah Palin and neopentecostal dominionists--enough that, in truth, she may be ultimately as much of a "dream candidate" for the dominionist movement as Mike Huckabee was. Even worse, she's running in a manner that has been frighteningly successful for dominionist groups since the early 80's--specifically, as a "stealth candidate".
Sarah Palin's Chart (set for 4:40 PM on 2-11-1964 in Sand Point, Idaho)
I recently wrote in the OCA Newsletter:
Pluto sits right on the Ascendant of the New Moon set for 3:58 PM in Washington DC. near the Galactic Center and screaming for change. Evidently this change will be the result of some destructive force before we can rebuild. Venus which has just started a transit in Libra is separating from a potent square to Pluto. This brings in vibrations of goddess energies. Symbolically the more conservative candidate, McCain, has made history by picking a woman to run with him as prospective VP. This woman Sarah Heath Palin (born Feb. 11, 1964) has an almost exact Chiron-Pluto opposition from Pisces to Virgo. This is connected to divination, channeling, and atavistic traits that reappear after disappearing generations ago. Mr. John Sidney McCain III (born Aug. 29, 1936) might be in for some major surprises with Sarah. McCain's natal Venus at 22 Virgo near the US Chart's idealistic Neptune is currently opposed by transiting Uranus in Pisces retrograde.
Sarah has a benefiical Grand Trine in materializing earth planets, asteroids and points
Astraea-Taurus (at MC) to Uranus-Virgo (2nd house) to S Node-Capricorn (5th House
bringing her desire for "justice" together with shocking almost outrageous need for change with past life gifts and mother archetype in house of children.
Part Two will follow later...

Hurricane Hanna forms in Caribbean after Mysterious Sky Phenomenon Observed Off The East Coast Of Florida
Now that Hurricane Gustav is losing strength and barely a Category One storm, what are we going to tell those two million people have fled inland from the Louisiana coast? If you are on mainstream media keep the fear cranked up since another hurricane is on the way: Hanna.
Looking at the chart above (set for first advisory that Hanna was now a hurricane - 1:30 PM AST) we see a Grand Mutable Cross forming (mutable is the most changeable of all
triplicities). Saturn sits at MC Opposing Uranus at IC both Squaring a Juno-Pallas opposition...Hanna which is supposedly not supposed to upgrade into anymore then a cat 1
and bring lots of water to Georgia and South Carolina is being tracked like Gustav
Lots of words of power (Pallas Gemini) opposing Juno in expansive Sagittarius.
In fact NHC is issuing advisories on not just TS HANNA, but with TS IKE, TS JOSEPHINE and TS KARINA
Lots of storms are forming really fast in the Atlantic which brings us to this unusual story of Mysterious Sky Phenomenon Observed Off The East Coast Of Florida
At around 7:00-7:30pm, August 26, 2008, (not August 28) a Florida family observed a mysterious phenomenon in the Florida sky near the central east coast city of Holy Hill, Florida. (At that time Mercury-Venus in Virgo were TSQ Pluto-Uranus for some major power plays perhaps generated from Haarp like energies??)
I tend to notice the skies all the time, but in my 46 years, I have never seen anything like this. All clouds and haze abruptly broke off at the edges of this huge “wedge” of blue sky and were completely missing inside it. It was absolutely surreal.
