Solar Eclipse Rocks Rove: Judiciary Chairman subpoenas Rove

It takes a village from Code Pink to Alex Jones to John Conyers to catch the war criminals. At least we hope that more progressive voices will be heard.

Yesterday as an historic New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius rocked DC and the world, Karl Rove was nailed too. Jupiter, Sun, Moon and the North Node of destiny moved over his rising @ 9 Aquarius 21 minutes - Sabian for Rove's Ascendant - "Popularity that proves emphemeral." that is understatement cause no matter how many Fox News programs are aired
The big question is will this subpoena work to rein in former "Machivallian prince" to the petty tyrant Bush be brought to justice after many attempts?

Invoking President Barack Obama, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) has subpoenaed former Bush Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove about his alleged involved in the political prosecution of an Alabama governor and the firings of nine US Attorneys.

The Raw Story | Invoking Obama, House Judiciary Chairman subpoenas Rove

The new moon eclipse chart set for DC. had an asscendant of 2 Sagittarius: Sabian symbol: "The ocean covered with whitecaps." which augurs for a stormy ocean of sentiment transiting Rove's natal MidHeaven at 29 Scorpio.
More then anything else is that the ruler of the Eclipse Chart DC. is Jupiter harbinger of justice and laws. Jupiter is not only supported by the will of the people (Moon) but the power of the executive branch (Sun)but is in mutual reception with Uranus. Uranus is the lightening flash and cosmic trickster which will outwit the most vile political strategist of the last eight years.

Part Two: Eris, Revolution and The Solar Eclipse in January 2009

A Thors Hammer Reverberates over Saros North 11

The second part of this work examines how the past and future meeting during this
new eclipse season starting on January 26th.
Before I bring in a real wild card called Eris first spotted in January 2005 and the largest known dwarf planet in the Solar System and the ninth-largest body known to orbit the Sun, we will focus on the dramatic energies of this Eclipse series.
In Part One, dealing with how this current eclipse season is a harbinger of massive revolution and change for the world, we touched on the effects of Saros Series North 11.
"Under the influence of this family of eclipses, individuals may suddenly change the group of which they have been mixing, either thru travel or ideas. However the separation implied by the Venus/Saturn would produce very positive outcomes. This whole eclipse series could also talk of making greater commitment in relationships. " On Feb. 2nd, Venus entering pioneering Aries on Feb. 2nd and Mars entering humanitarian Aquarius - the group oriented sign on Feb. 4th, the preceding description of this eclipse could be quite accurate. As large groups of people began to break off from hierarchical control the fulfillment of the Mayan Sixth Day could emerge as a major influence to world policy and decisions. This lunation has Sun/Moon in TSQ to Vesta in Taurus and the South Node in Leo to encourage strong focus and commitment and bringing abilities from past lives to play. In the chart set for Washington DC (@ 2:55 AM) one prominent aspect is a Thors Hammer with the apex of this Arrowhead, or a quadriform pointing at Saturn at the MidHeaven which is 135 degrees from both Vesta in Taurus and Sun-Moon-Jupiter in Aquarius with the fixed signs 90 degrees away. The energy of this aspect pattern is a little like a T-square, since it has stressful, dynamic energy.

US Sibley Progressed and DC Eclipse Chart

Looking at the above chart with the Washington DC chart in the middle of the wheel surrounded by US Sibley progressed we can see that Chiron and Venus are progressed together in Aries. Women warriors are moving into charge for some pioneering type of healing. Both Chiron/Venus oppose progressed Mars in Libra over the 5th/11th house axis which is bound to dramatically change our national purpose whether it be starting wars or borrowing to prevent recession with trillion dollar "stimulus" package.
As the economic crisis and deeper recession grow, debt is now at toxic levels while our currency has been debased. Notice that the nodes in the Sibley chart have progressed with S Node (past sins) now in Capricorn transiting the 2nd house along with Pluto just as N Node in Cancer rocks the 8th house of this eclipse. The 8th represents the the fractional reserve fiat money Federal Reserve system which continues to keep the economy barely groaning forward through sheer inertia,Mars in the US Sibley chart progressed into retrograde motion on June 2006.

Mars retrograde in Libra also relates well to Congressman Kucinich's advocating a department of peace along with a majority of Americans demanding an end to the Iraq War. Currently with Mars in positive aspect to Venus now separating from a conjunction with Uranus on Jan. 22nd. women are entering the scene to bring a halt to the srife of war.

Eris Goddess of Strife and Change

Astrologer Philip Sedwick offers these first keywords for Eris which has a long orbital period of 556.65 yr., has lunar companion named Dysnomia - liberation from addictions to success or status. Mythology tells that Eris is the Greek goddess of strife, her name being translated into Latin as Discordia. Eris is currently at 20 Aries 42 and will be meeting Venus (due to retrograde) in May. According to myth per Hesiod's Works and Days 11–24, there were two different goddesses named Eris with extreme actions of strife. One Goddess fosters evil war and battle, cruel and through the will of the deathless gods. The other is the elder daughter of dark Night (Nyx), and the son of Cronus who sits above and dwells in the aether, this verison sets her in the roots of the earth: and she is far kinder to men. She stirs up even the shiftless to toil. This Strife is wholesome for men and appeared in Homer's Iliad Book IV. The most famous tale of Eris recounts her initiating the Trojan War. The goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite had been invited along with the rest of Olympus to the forced wedding of Peleus and Thetis, who would become the parents of Achilles, but Eris had been snubbed because of her troublemaking inclinations. The bottom line involves the Female Warrior archetype which must help resolve our current era of strife.
Digging in deeper from a mundane astrological perspective: Eris is about promises and vows (both kept and broken), elections and election fraud (which will continue to be activated beyond the 2008 dramas). Eris relates to intervention by higher powers including authorities, deity or Gods. Eris is said to use chaos and disruption as a method of reorganization, which we are going to see big time in February. Turning things upside down including the scales of justice, battles, disputes, famine, fightings, lawlessness (attributed to her moon, Dysnomia). She always wants the last word amid contentions and rivalry. She is the nurse of war, signifying women wearing men’s uniforms (sports players, women in the military, astronauts)and eventually the end to over 5,000 years of war.

In the Sibley progressed chart above, not only is Mars retrograde in the peace at any price sign Libra but also Neptune is retro. @ 26 Virgo 19 with an interesting symbol in light of the first African American President Barack Obama. Sabian for 27 degrees: An African guest at an English high tea is getting on fine, until a racist remark goads him into an impassioned speech. Standing up for human dignity amid cross cultural attacks means keeping one's integrity intact. Also Saturn is progressed to 3 Scorpio 17 Retro. with a Sabian: "Holding a lit candle, a woman investigates the spooky castle she has just inherited." From this image, we gather that Obama is just beginning to get an ideal of how many shadows, black ops and illuminati ghosts are present in and around the white house. Prog. Saturn is SQ the New Moon's Juno-Jupiter conjunction which will began shedding light on some of those clandestine and even morbid alliances.

Fixed Stars of Orion Shine with Venus
Stars of the constellation Orion, Betelgeuse and Bellatrix are in
important angles (paran) in the New Moon chart for DC. These two stars relate to hornors and the sadness derived from dishonor and treachery. Betelgeuse is rising as Venus is Culminating orb 00 mins 12 secs - this describes a successful artisan, or advancement due to a relationship. Generally Betelgeuse is indicative of great fortune, martial honors and "kingly" attributes yet at other times did foretell war and carnage. We also notice that Betelgeuse is rising as Saturn is On Nadir orb 00 mins 30 secs - this can speak of success in an arduous or a proletarian field. Robson says With Saturn, Betelgeuse brings out the shrewd, cunning, craftily dishonest, treacherous to friends, eventful life with many ups and downs, eventual wealth but little comfort, unfavorable for domestic matters.

Bellatrix, the Female Warrior, the Amazon Star is s culminating as Venus is Setting orb 00 mins 21 secs - here we have the rogue, the creative person who works in alternative fields. According to Ptolemy Bellatrix is like Mars and Mercury which meet in Capricorn on eclipse day. Per Robson, Bellatrix gives great civil or military honor but danger of sudden dishonor, renown, wealth, eminent friends and liability to accidents causing blindness and ruin. Robson goes on to say that with Venus, Bellatrix will bring much suffering through love affairs owing to unrestrained feeling. UPDATE: Johanna Sigurdardottir, named as Iceland's prime minister on Sunday, is the first openly lesbian head of government in Europe, if not the world - at least in modern times.
Whether we speak of women like Hillary Clinton or Kate Winslet, they are both warriors whether in politics or the arts. Undoubtedly we are in for some fireworks as the cosmic transition teams are in the process of catalyzing the earthly transition teams by sending powerful women warriors to stir up the mess via chaos.

Before I sign off we should note that our Aquarian Solar Eclipse serves as a special gateway for the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, the feast of mid-winter best known in the west as Imbolc or Brigantia. The rites of fire and purification will be performed then to clear the way for the returning light and resurgent vitality of spring. Venus enters Aries on Feb. 2nd just in time for Imbolc.
Also on February 2nd: the Festival of Februalia, honoring the old Roman goddess Februa, mother of Mars occurs. Later in history Februa merged with Juno to become Juno Februa, so called because expiatory offerings called februa are made to her now, in the time of purification. Jupiter moving toward Neptune does continue to inspire our spiritual idealism, ideologies and beliefs with some grandiose expectations.

Part One: Exopolitics and Revolution as the Egg Cracks on the Ring of Fire Eclipse

Aquarian Portals Open and Energies Pour In.

Aquarius is a sign dealing with humanitarian ideals, the unexpected, the far out as in ET contact, deep space communications, futuristic ideas, revolution, shocking and universal changing events. The Aquarian is always open to truth, from whatever source it comes and ever since the Sun entered this sign on January 19th this month, truth has emanated from multiple sources. Just like the lightening glyph which corresponds to this sign, it has been non stop magic, signs in the skies, oceans, winds and earth as the cosmic egg cracks open. This is a time of amazing first time events for all of us. Since the solar ingress, mass experiences have included an awesome rush of euphoric hope not felt since the neo-con elite hijacked our country in 2001. Large emotions from hope to wonder have been experienced from the pre-inauguration concert to the Uranian/Jupiter ceremonies during Obama's big day to multiple meteor sightings to freaky weather across Europe. Just in case you didn't know since the last perigee Full Moon on January 10th, earthquakes have increased across the globe from the loyalty islands to the west coast of California. Regarding the meteors or shooting stars sometimes described as fireballs, which are a brighter-than-usual meteor sightings have been reported from Scandanavia to the and Saturday on Jan. 23, 2009, at approximately 8:48 pm EST a meteoroid of unknown size hit Earth's atmosphere over New England. More to follow as the Aquarian lunations ramp up.

Unquestionably time has accelerated, evolution per Calleman's view of the Mayan Calendar is on track, history is shifting gears as reality as supposedly constructed is dissolving. The Mayan day symbol for January 26th is MEN or Eagle known to be the intermediary between heaven and earth. The Eagle thru the wings of spirit allows us a very Aquarian detached intelligent point of view yet stresses compassionate service in order to sustain all of us.
Enlightenment has even become an attainable goal along with a general spiritual upliftment since the last Capricorn new moon on Dec. 27, 2008. Exopolitics, the study of political relations between humans and extraterrestrial civilizations is beginning to have a major impact on the affairs of earth.

The chart above has both rulers of Aquarius, Saturn and Uranus in prominent positions applying to the next opposition on February 5th. Saturn representing the Obama administration on the MidHeaven (which is at 16 Virgo - Sabian: A volcanic eruption) and Uranus (unexpected compassion) on the opposite axis the IC 16 Pisces - An Easter promenade. Even though Obama is struggling with being the "War President" having his natal Mars (22Virgo) conjunct US. Sibley chart's
Neptune Square Mars fantasy of world domination via war, this eclipse will underscore the collapse of empire. No longer will Obama be able to hide his Appointments of Top Notch CFR, Bilderberg Members like George Mitchell and Richard Holbrooke to handle affairs in the Mid-East. The chart above set for Washington DC has all those Aquarian planets in the 3rd house of all communications from TV to internet to radio and points from Juno (independent relationships), Jupiter (expansion of ideals and truth), Sun, Moon, North Node (destiny) and Chiron and Neptune together for anti-war energies and mass healings using alternative practices to be revealed as the old gives way to the new.

The New Moon in Aquarius coincides with an Solar Eclipse and occurs on January 25th @ 11:55 PM PST or 2:55 AM EST
This lunation is at 6 Aquarius 30 or Sabian Symbol for 7 degrees Aquarius : "A child born of an eggshell." This image is about fresh, novel and penetrating vision as spoken from the innocence of a "Crystal Child." If we want to make omellettes, then we need to crack a few eggs open. With the preceding symbol, there is a telepathic element which is clear, direct and powerful signifying novel methods to solve old problems. Another Sabain image of this degree deals also deals with fresh visions and bold actions: " After a dangerous journey, a young aviator lands in front of a crowd of exuberant well wishers and waves to his parents in the first row. " This describes both self-confidence, a precocious talent reminiscent of the Aquarian genius and public acceptance.

Now that the Mayan Sixth Day in the Galactic Underworld and the Fourth World of this underworld which began on August 15, 2008 is in full gear, Last time the Fourth World occured was in 1947 time of the Roswell Crash, multiple UFO sightings all during the Planetary Underworld. In sympathy with the child above, on his first full day as President, Barack Obama issued two Executive Orders and three Presidential Memorandums that will start an era of transparent and Open Government.
Honolulu Exopolitics Examiner: UFO files to be released under Obama Open Government Memoranda

So how will we finally get the truth about earth's quarantine and will it be lifted?
As the eclipses on January 26th and February 9th literally open the doors to new cosmic
energies crashing into our solar system the answers are being revealed.
Listen to this radio show on January 10, 2009:
EXOPOLITICS: 2009 & the beginning of
ET contact with Barbara Hand Clow
and Alfred Webre - Part I

Monday's Solar Eclipse which has been described as a Ring of Fire, because of the brillant sunset rings will appear over the islands of Borneo, Java and Sumatra in the morning as the moon. Elsewhere, the Moon will pass off-center producing crescent suns of varying depth over south Africa, Madagascar, Australia, southern parts of India and southeast Asia per The time of greatest eclipse takes place at 07:58:39 UT on January 26th or 11:59 PM PST with chart set for that time in San Francisco with an Ascendant of 26 Libra 52 - Sabian Symbol: An airplane hovering overhead.

This eclipse is part of Saros Series 11 North.. B. Brady in Predictive Astrology (page 323) describes this eclipse family as: "Under the influence of this family of eclipses, individuals may suddenly change the group of which they have been mixing, either thru travel or ideas. However the separation implied by the Venus/Saturn would produce very positive outcomes. This whole eclipse series could also talk of making greater commitment in relationships Either way the eclipse is gentle and individuals can trust the situations that arise and allow themselves to be led along by their own momentum."
Brady is delineating a revolutionary scenario which will play out for millions of people during this Saros Series eclipse window which ends with a Lunar Appulse Eclipse on February 9th when Jupiter joins the futuristic N Node as the teachings of ascended masters
are brought in for everyone to get.

The other element we haven't discussed is revolution driven by the need for freedom mirrored by the Saturn-Uranus opposition which last happened during the sixties.
A chart set for the maxium eclipse in San Francisco at 11:59 PM is evident of where
the revolutionary and progressive energies will be felt.
Having Libra rising @ 26 degrees 52 puts the house cusps for IC @ 0 degrees Aquarius
and MC @ 0 degrees Leo. In this chart all the those Aquarian planets sit in the 4th house where something revolutionary is happening not just in real estate, urban farming, weather for sure and California's society and its traditions.

Another chart set for London during Maximum Eclipse or New Moon has the ascendant @ 8 degrees Aquarius and 29 minutes: "A flag turned into an eagle" which reflects the Mayan day sign Mem. This London chart is besieged by the Aquarian stellium across the rising which represents the nation or group as a whole, the country and its inhabitants, its physical condition and a grassroots movement which is rebelling against UK's government control. This control by British bureaucrats is outlined in an amusing but real article entitled: The food police may soon be coming to your door. Also with ruler Uranus sitting in the second house of currency, money markets, banks and financial institutions and values, expect a Major Shakeup by the next Full Moon.
“I believe that there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice, and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don’t think it will be based on the color of the skin…”
This clash does not have to be bloody or combative yet it deals with how we think, act and understand the universe.

On Sunday, Jan. 25th. Bolivian voters embraced a new constitution that promises more power for the long-suffering indigenous majority and grants leftist President Evo Morales a shot at remaining in office through 2014.
A maximum solar eclipse chart set for La Paz Bolivia at 3:59 AM AST has Pluto in Capricorn sitting on the Ascendant of 4 degrees Capricorn 18 minutes with this Sabian Symbol: "Indians rowing a canoe and dancing a war dance. " Mars and Mercury in Capricorn are in the first house represents the nation or group as a whole, the country and its inhabitants. Bolivia's Aymara, Quechua, Guarani and dozens of other indigenous groups only won the right to vote in 1952 and Morales uses the term "decolonize" to underscore how this charter will bring back indigenous values lost under centuries of oppression dating back to the Spanish conquest. Easter Sunday, April 21, 1519 the day that Hernando Cortez and his fleet of 11 Spanish galleons arrived from the East at what is today called Vera Cruz, Mexico. Land and freedom were taken from the native people with the arrival of Cortez and lasted until August 16, 1987 the Harmonic Convergence.
Carlos Barrios , an historian and anthropologist speaks of Mayan prophecy saying from 1987 till now “We have been in a time when the right arm of the materialistic world is disappearing, slowly but inexorably. We are at the cusp of the era when peace begins, and people live in harmony with Mother Earth. We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition."

Obama Retakes Oath of Office Mercury Retro. Again

Jan. 21st WASHINGTON – President Obama was re-administered the oath of office on Wednesday evening by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., one day after the two men stumbled over each other’s words during the inauguration.

Chart Below: When Obama Redid the Oath Set for 7:35 PM EST for January 21, 2009.
Are they ever going to get it right astrologically.
Even though the Ascendant was changed below to 00 degrees Virgo 26 minutes providing excellent Sabian Image - We still have Mercury Retrograde as the ruler!
Sabian Symbol does add to the "Man of the Hour" quality for Barack.
"In a portrait the best of a man's traits are idealized." With a mutable sign rising things are much more changeable, while a fixed signs provide a more lasting quality.

The new time only afforded a better image for the ascendant and a moon that was not void of course still not the optimum for electional astrology. In the retake, the Moon is applying (the faster-moving planet is coming into aspect with the
slower planet by its natural celestial motion) to Squares with Venus, Uranus and Saturn which all perfect on Jan. 22nd.
When Obama and Roberts got together on the evening of January 21st the Sun-Moon and all those Capricorn-Aquarian planets including Mercury were below the horizon, not the best chart. Plus the primary culprit Mercury is ruler of the chart with Virgo rising. The original oath administered at 12:04 PM EST had a fixed 15 degrees Taurus 45 (Fixed Stubborn Sign) where the is usually Moon exalted. The first swearing in had transiting Moon VOC opposing Pallas from the 7th house known for open enemies - perhaps Roberts was deliberately being antagonistic - NAW he just talks slow. With this Sabian Image
"An old many attempting vainly to reveal mysteries. "

The president and the chief justice stood in the Map Room of the White House at 7:35 p.m. as they took a second run at the constitutional oath. A handful of advisers watched the proceeding, which lasted about 25 seconds.
Oath Is Administered Once Again - The Caucus Blog -

Only two previous presidents, Chester Arthur and Calvin Coolidge, retook their oaths under similar circumstances. Let's not make any parallels yet...

I don't think Obama's people thought they needed a competent Electional Astrologer to find the most auspicious time to set a chart for Obama's swearing in as president. But Obama who was a professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years felt he needed to take the oath again. The think that makes it tough for astrologers is that Jan. 20th has been the traditional day for administering the oath since 1937.

In Electional astrology there are no "perfect" days but some our much better then others.
It turns out that either the Barack astrological insiders got whiff of the many astro oriented sites pointing out the obvious - Mercury Retro. along with Moon Void of Course
was going to create some major glitches and Barack with Mars in Virgo @ 22 degrees wasn't having that since it conjuncted the historical July 4th chart's planet of major illusion Neptune. Notice above that Mercury is no longer at an angle and has ingressed into Capricorn and is sitting intercepted in the 5th house relating to Obama's Leo Sun separating from the Sun where everyone can laugh about the glitch. Obama had been gracious about the mishap, abstaining from the fun when Vice President Joe Biden joked to White House staff Wednesday about not having as good a memory as the Chief Justice. All those Pluto in Virgo generation sticklers will be happy since they were the powerhouse that got Obama in the white house.
For those detailed individuals SF Gate today.
The presidential oath is explicitly prescribed in the Constitution, Article II, Section One, which requires that the oath be taken as written before the president can execute his duties. It was discussed at some length at the Constitutional convention and has been taken by all 42 previous presidents. Scholars said no one doubted that Obama was president, and certainly no court would hear a challenge, but that a re-do would be recommended just to be safe.

Tuesday - Jan. 20, 2009 was a day sacred to Mars and war and it was a mix of revolutionary planets which weren't cooperating. Mercury in Aquarius was both retrograde and Void of Course (waiting to changes signs) @ 12:04 PM yesterday at Obama's swearing in ceremony. At that time Mercury was at an angle adding to public glitches with the crazy tilt in Aquarius. Also the the Moon was Scorpio @ 29 degrees and 45 minutes - a critical, karmic degree creating a recipe for disaster. Especially with the Moon opposing Pallas in Gemini (words, speech and hearing) So like any time Mercury ruling law, writing, communications is retro. things are redone or revised especially with didactic Capricorn now in charge.
Not to say that many aspects were highly favorable for many of the ceremonies yesterday with an Inauguration which attracted massive internet traffic via Sun-Mercury conjunction
at 10:59 AM. By the time the moon went direct in Sagittarius Moon then sextiled Mercury @ 1:41 PM for more celebrations magnified by communications fest. Then with Moon sextileed Jupiter @ 2:15 PM and we were off to the races with Obama mania.
Let's take a quick look at some quotes about Moon Void of Course:
From Lilly: "A planet is Void of Course, when he is separated from a planet, nor doth forthwith, during his being in that sign, apply to any other: This is most usually in the Moon; In judgements do you carefully observe whether she be Void of Course yea or no; you shall seldom see a business go handsomely forward when she is so (p.112).

Chart Below: Obama Taking Oath at Inauguration Day

Notice Mercury at the top of the chart with the Moon opposing Pallas in Gemini asteroid of political strategy involving words. It of course was that stumbling over the words that really vexed Obama with his natal mutable Virgo Mars, Gemini Moon especially since his own natal Jupiter( @ 00 Aquarius 51) signifying law was closely conjunct that pesky Mercury Retrograde on inauguration day!

Obama Lincoln Inauguration Parallel - An Astrological Comparison

Corrected Bi-Wheel with Obama's Inauguration in Center Wheel and Lincolin on outside.

By now you have been inundated by President-Elect Barack Obama's seizing on the parallels of his inauguration to Abraham Lincoln's swearing in on March 4, 1861. On thing is for sure powerful energies are converging from the past as we see the Pluto-Mars conjunction in Taurus during Lincoln's time near the Obama swearing in chart's Ascendant @ 14 Taurus 02. Of course the media will play this off with a reflection of the Sabian Symbol: "A man with a rakish silk hat, muffled braves the storm." It has been cold in DC. lately - The forecast for Inauguration Day was scattered snow flurries, with a high of 30 and low of 19 and with Mercury retrograding back into Capricorn @ 12:36 AM on Jan. 21st it is going to get a lot colder. Mercury void in Aquarius is when the events take place so expect a lot of disruptions, communications to fail, and things break besides weather changes.

Before we examine the similarities and differences of Lincoln's ceremony to Barack's let's look at history:
Abraham Lincoln's Inauguration

"Monday, March 4, 1861, was a big day for Abraham Lincoln and for America. That morning, he and outgoing President James Buchanan left the Willard Hotel, which is nearby the White House, in a horse-drawn carriage bound for the Capitol. Shortly after 1 p.m., Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Roger B. Taney administered the presidential oath of office.
Lincoln/s chart had an Ascendant of 15 Cancer 54 or A man before a square with a manuscript scroll before him. This was the challenge to show Abe's competency faced with profound challenges. Both Lincoln's and Obama's inaugurations had Saturn retrograde making things just a little more serious.

Just as Obama is taking office five months after the most serious economic crisis to hit the US began on Sept. 15th 2008, Lincoln had his challenges...Lincoln took office just months after seven Southern states had seceded from the Union and formed the Confederate States of America. In the Lincoln chart we find both Mars and Pluto together in earthy Taurus and yes separating from a dangerous conjunction in the recent past circa Feb. 28th. With Obama Mars-Pluto were together in the executive sign of Capricorn on Dec. 28th 2008 when the Israeli attack on occupied Gaza begin. Looking back like Janus toward the time of the Civil War: On February 28, 1861 the Colorado Territory was created from portions of Utah, New Mexico, Nebraska, and the previous Kansas Territories to become part of the Union.

Sure Obama has roots in Springfield, IL and he is the first black president which is big stuff but when Lincoln freed the slaves he faced a civil war which continued in spirit for centuries. Today we have the second passage of Saturn Opposing Uranus (Feb. 5th) and our 21st century America is divided by many highly charged issues and the Lakota Nation did withdraw from treaties, declare independence from U.S. in Dec. 20th 2007. Portions of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming comprise Lakota country, while states like Vermont have put up trial balloons regarding secession.

Obama Takes Train Ride To History, President-Elect Retraces Lincoln's Route From Philadelphia To Washington; Next Stop: Inauguration - CBS News

Saturn is a primary influence in both inaugurations but with different flavors. Obama's Noon swearing in has MidHeaven @ 26 Capricorn 09 - Sabian- A Mountain Pilgrimage using perseverance to climb the political peaks and the devotion to reach your goal. One reason Obama's speech is all about a New Era of Responsibility is the prominence of Saturn which deals with accountability.
All those Aquarian planets: MercuryRx-Sun-Jupiter-N Node-Chiron and Neptune are intercepted in the 10th house adding the distinct power of the New Era to begin. Yet Saturn is the ancient ruler of Aquarius. Here we have our minds looking at the past since Mercury will retrograde back in Capricorn @ 9:36 PM PST.

Lincoln Event Fixed Stars

In terms of the primary fixed stars for both events, there is a world of difference.
With Lincoln: The HELIACAL RISING STAR was
Deneb Algedi - Rising 45 mins 33 secs before Sunrise -
Seeking the legal, physical or metaphyical laws that govern the world
Deneb Algedi, is a star in the Sea Goat's tail. According to Robson (p.159) it is symbolically called the "Judicial Point of the Goat".

Regulus - Setting 38 mins 28 secs before Sunrise - found in the constellation Cor Leonis
aka the Royal One in the Lion's breast
A strong belief in the correctness of one's position, or path
Also the Moon ws Setting when Regulus is On Nadir orb 00 mins 13 secs -
A natural leader, who leads by love and devotion, rather than by power and authority

The Sun was culminating when Facies (found in the constellation M22 Sagittarius) is Setting orb 01 mins 59 secs -
A piercing focus to the point of ruthlessness, or prophetic vision
Facies is considered a fated star known to cause accidents and death...The nebula in the Archer's Face is of the nature of the Sun and Mars, and causes blindness, defective sight, sickness, accidents and a violent death. [Robson*, p.165.]

Obama Event Fixed Stars

Acumen - Rising 68 mins 18 secs before Sunrise -
Suffering at the hands of others; subject to rumours

Capella - Setting 15 mins 11 secs before Sunrise -
Believing in, and seeking, freedom and fairness

Parans with the planets especially with the Sun
which is Rising when Scheat from the contstellation Pegasus is Rising orb 01 mins 05 secs - Headstrong, an independent thinker usually associated with danger as With Sun: Danger through water and engines, liable to accidents or drowning. [Robson*, p.206.]
The Pegasus Syndrome, as exemplified in the legends of Perseus and Bellerophon, is concerned with the innate ability possessed by some people to negotiate difficulties by rising above them, on the one hand, and the danger of overreaching themselves, on the other.

"Sully" A Hero's Tale - Destiny, Luck and a Quick Mind

The mainstream media has had field day with the miraculous landing and rescue of the 155 passengers and crew members of the US Airways Airbus 320 from the icy Hudson River yesterday afternoon. Chesley Burnett "Sully" Sullenberger III (born January 23, 1951) is being hailed as a hero with the emergency water landing of US Airways Flight 154. Fortunately for the astrologer like me I can piece together a natal chart even without an exact time. The Chart above for "Sully" coraborates the fact that he was not only bright, quick but was dedicated to successful strategies to save his crew. With Mercury conjunct Pallas in Capricorn and trine Vesta in Taurus - he was both focused and committed as a pilot. Having Mars and Jupiter together in Pisces deomonstrates his compassion and selfless actions toward others.

Fox News: Hero Pilot's Records, IQ Scores Released by School District in 'Accident'
"The hero pilot who miraculously guided his crippled jet into a textbook landing in the icy Hudson River was a straight-A student as a schoolboy in Denison, Texas." Yet that is only half the story as another Mercury retrograde glitch surfaces and Jupiter wheds more light on Sully's past. "But his official records were never meant to be released, and the Denison school district is now scrambling to recover the confidential documents that brought the private pilot even more into the public eye."

Destiny exaggerated in Pisces
The real investigation for the astrologer involves the Bi-Wheel Chart below which has
"Sully" Sullenberger III natal chart as the inner wheel with the time of the first engine failure on the outside. Wow Jupiter transiting yesterday applying to "Sully's" Aquarian Sun @ 2 degrees 55 minutes for some awesome luck, optimism and a heroic tale to say the least burnished by the media's response. Even more astounding, the modern ruler of Chesley Burnett "Sully" Sullenberger III's identity and hero personality - Uranus was within minutes of an exact hit to his N Node of destiny @ 19 Pisces 49 minutes! Venus was transiting @ 12 degrees Pisces making a Midpoint to his natal Jupiter and N Node to fire the public's imagination for brave deeds. Most of all the incredible, shocking landing of the plane in the waters of the Hudson river (Pisces). At this time there are already way too many (Jupiter) pictures of the plane floating on its side with two damaged engines.
New Bi-Wheel with time of impact verified @ 3:30:30 PM EST

Plane Crashes into Hudson River - Reactions and Miracles Overcome Mercury Retrograde and Phaeton Strike

Upadate Jan. 17, 2009: A US Airways jetliner with 150 passengers and 5 crew members plunged into the icy Hudson River on Thursday afternoon less than five minutes after taking off from LaGuardia Airport.
Here is the interchange between the captain and controllers - Dismissing the notion of trying to land at Teterboro Airport, six miles west, in New Jersey, the response from the cockpit was, “We can’t do it.”

When asked which runway the pilot wanted to land on, the answer was:

“We’re going to be in the Hudson.”

The plane splashed down at 3:30:30,
Ms. Higgins said.
This changes the rising sign from 9 degrees Cancer and 41 minutes
Note that Kathryn O. Higgins is a member of National Transportation Safety Board and is investigating Thursday’s incident, as she revealed more pertinent facts.
A Chart above is now set for splash down. Note that the time for first response of distress came at 3:27:32. when the pilot reported a “double bird strike” his quoate: “Hit birds. We lost thrust in both engines. We are turning back towards LaGuardia.”, less then a minute after take off.) The takeoff from LaGuardia at 3:24:54. Cancer is rising at 9 degrees 41 minutes not only putting the chart's ruler the moon in the 4th house of home and endings but with a Sabian Symbol of 9 degrees. The Sabian is appropriately: "Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows" This symbol reflects how the pilot and copilot worked together using their innate intelligence and mechanical ability to help save the passengers. Plus it demonstrates how service oriented the entire crew became in the effort. that all 150 passengers and the 5 crew members were quickly rescued by passing boats As you should know Mercury in Aquarius is retrograde and was the ruler of today's Void of Course Moon - a time when things just seem to go awry or just don't complete. Aquarius like Sagittarius has close correlation to air travel, aviation and Aeronautics (from Greek aero which means air or sky and nautis which means sailor, i.e. sailor of the air or sky)
Having the Moon applying to a SQ with Pluto which spells destruction and mechanical breakdowns didn't help. Yet as much of the media is reporting this was truly a miraculous event with Jupiter @ 2 degrees 23 minutes Aquarius right on the cusp of the 8th house crowded with Mercury (mental states), North Node (destiny), Chiron (wounded healer) and Neptune all encompassing faith in the sign of the water-bearer. All of these planets and points are in positive mutual reception to Uranus at the MidHeaven. In this case the 8th house represented taking care of the business of living not death or taxes.

The Associated Press: All 155 safe after pilot ditches jet in NYC river

Uranus in the new chart above for the landing was at 18 pisces o4 for the perfect sabian symbol sitting right near the MidHeaven which not only created unexpected and shocking events. Here we had: A master instructing his pupil. Here Sully showed his high flying executive ability and used the power of elucidation in getting that jet down safely into the Hudson. the pilot said on the address system, “Brace for impact.”
Once the plane came to rest in the Hudson, the captain issued a one-word command: “evacuate.” One flight attendant went to open the left front door, Ms. Higgins said, and the other went to the right door.

The chart set for the landing time (3:30:30PM EST) in the river had Uranus the trickster in Pisces was also applying to another exact opposition to Saturn sitting at the IC and separating from the Moon which signified the gravity of the situation for the public (Moon). Yet it was the sober, quick reactions of the older heroic pilot (Saturn)
Captain Sullenberger, known as Sully whose age is listed at 58 years. Sully's experience shined thru since he flew the F-4 for the United States Air Force for seven years in the 1970s after graduating from the United States Air Force Academy.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an experienced pilot, said it appeared the pilot did "a masterful job of landing the plane in the river and then making sure everybody got out." And Gov. David Patterson pronounced it "a miracle on the Hudson."

Before we analyze more details in the chart later, one other interesting factor was that little known asteroid 3200 Phaethon was closely contraparallel Mars (like an opposition) spelling potentially dangerous times. Mars is always a big factor in any accidents and located in the 7th house of not only open enemies but relatedness and alliances which is a primary factor in this event. Mars was in Capricorn @ 14 degrees 46 minutes which translates to this Sabian: Many toys in the children's ward of a hospital,dealing with caring and recovery afer a traumatic event.

Back to Phaeton conraparallel Mars.

Phaethon is an Apollo asteroid and an extinct comet with the distinction of approaching the Sun closer than any other numbered asteroid; its perihelion is only 0.140 AU — less than half Mercury's perihelion distance. In In Greek mythology, Phaëton or Phaethon was the son of Helios. Primary myth has ramifications of accidents occuring since it was told by Ovid: "Phaeton sought assurance that his mother, Clymene, is telling the truth that his father is the sun god Helios. When Phaeton obtains his father's promise to drive the sun chariot as proof, he fails to control it and is killed to prevent further disaster." This story has given rise to two latter-day meanings of "phaeton": one who drives a chariot or coach, especially at a reckless or dangerous speed, and one that would or may set the world on fire.

Another interesting bit of asteroid symbolism is that Jupiter (hope/optimism) was closely conjunct the asteroid 1862 Apollo named after the Greek Sun God Apollo. Apollo was also the patron defender of herds and flocks (like the geese?) Lest we forget it was Hermes (Mercury) who stole the cattle from Apollo and used one of the cow's intestines and the tortoise shell and made the first lyre. Eventually Zeus (Jupiter) gave the lyre to Apollo, a god of music, who fell in love with the instrument and offered to allow exchange of the cattle for the lyre. So many synchronous myths seem to be the fabric of not just today's hopeful event but we can see the hand of the gods everywhere.

The prevailing cause was a flock of Canadian geese hitting the plane minutes after take off keeping with the theme of Mercury in the shocking air sign Aquarius.
A spokeswoman for the F.A.A., Laura J. Brown, said that a flock of birds had might have been sucked into the jet engines, but several aircraft manufactures said such occurrences are rare. Not with these astrological aspects where we should expect the unexpected!

The Oscar Grant Murder - Death of a Peace Maker - Mercury spurs the Outrage and Revolution

If you don't feel something akin to total outrage after hearing Alex Jones Audio blog regarding the cold-blooded murder of Oscar Grant, you don't have a shred of humanity left.
Alex Jones’ Audio Blog: January 10, 2009 In-Depth on BART shooting
This incident of an out right police state killing marked the beginning of what is already turning out to be a revolutionary year especially with Jupiter joining Mercury in Aquarius on Jan. 5th. Then by WEDNESDAY JANUARY 7, 2009 after the Justice for Oscar Grant protest at the Fruitvale Bart Station where the murder occurred, a mutable Gemini Moon was TSQ Uranus-Saturn. In the chart above, Mercury, which traditionally represents youth signifies Oscar only 22 years young when he passed. Mercury was near the IC - Oscar's home and the end of a matter and in this case his life.

The official story of Oscar's untimely death is filled with multiple excuses about accidents from the authorities re: gun confused for taser etc. Note that the chart above, set for 1-1-2009 @2:00 AM PST. I am using an ascendant of 1 Scorpio 29 with corresponding with Sabian Symbol: " A broken bottle and spilled perfume."
My timing is based on this story from the Bay View - Oscar Grant, 22, murdered in cold blood by BART police just two hours into the new year, was the loving father of a 4-year-old daughter, a fact he told the police just as he was shot. He worked as a butcher at Farmer Joe’s Marketplace.

The facts speak for themselves especially with multiple videos surfacing (Uranus in Pisces) in mutual reception to newly
ingressed Mercury in Aquarius (@ 1:52 AM on January 1st). Looking at the chart above Mercury had just crossed over the IC and was applying to meeting with North Node in Aquarius. representing a destiny filled with the community's outrage and revolutionary acts. At the MC is S Node in Leo speaking strongly about the past karma of all the infamous past police shootings of young black men in Oakland and the US. Here are the stark facts per BART officials: Oscar Grant was murdered on New Year’s Day by Officer Johannes Mehserle. Mr. Mehserle fatally shot Mr. Grant in the back after Mr. Grant and some friends were pulled from a train following a report of an altercation according to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) spokesman Linton Johnson. Listen to Alex as he continues to connect the dots of not just the tyrannical influence of the Bart officials and their dark minions the Bart police and their stone killers like Johannes Mehserle.

Here is one of the versions of the videos: It is clear that moments before Oscar was shot he was pleading with his friends who were all cuffed up to calm down and be cooperative with police. Grant was seen begging the police officers who had pulled tasers out and pointed them at the heads of his friends, not to shoot. Draconian intimidation and murderous reaction by the police followed (Mars-Pluto chart ruler's are together in authoritarian Capricorn in 3rd house of communications and neighborhood) - One officer kneeled on Oscar's neck while the other officer pulled out a gun and shot him point blank in the back. The bullet went through his back, hit the ground and bounced back up and pierced his lung, killing him. The police then ran around and terrified witnesses by taking away their cell phones and video cameras for ‘evidence’.

Cancer Full Moon is Bright and Bad as the Wolf Howls

The earth is already starting to tremble in the Los Angeles area on the cusp of the biggest, brightest moon of 2009. By 9:30 PM while the Moon is still in changeable Gemini TSQ the continuing Saturn-Uranus opposition, a series of quakes have hit a area south of San Bernardino, CA. including a sharp 4.5 Magnitude. During the snowy and frigid month of January, we are again approaching what the Algonquin tribes from New England dubbed the Full Wolf Moon or the Snow Moon...This was a time when the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Note that this Perigee full Moon is special since luna only comes this close to the earth once or twice a year. 2008 ended with one and now 2009 is beginning with another.

Just one year ago, on Jan. 9, 2008 when a Capricorn New Moon was bringing both physical and political quakes to the West Coast, I wrote about a lunation which ushered in the first waves of Pluto in Capricorn.
Well since then politics have become stranger and earthquakes are about to become stronger and the people hungry for justice and redemption. As Jupiter continues in Aquarius moving toward a meeting with Neptune in May to bolster a magnetic mutual reception to Uranus now in Pisces, collective energies are growing stronger.

Portents of massive change are everywhere with revolutionary Aquarian planets beginning to dominate along with old man Capricorn. Even the Mayan day sign for this Full Moon holds a prophecy of climate change being Galactic Tone 6 and Kin is Cauac (Rainstorm).

Madoff, his Arrest and Beyond Using AstroForensics

It seems like the financial media from CNBC to Bloomberg just can't get enough of Bernie. Now with today's ingress of Jupiter into Aquarus (Madoff had the planet or monetary abundance natally sitting @ 28 Aquarius. Bernie was affable and everyone like him (jupiter in Aquarius) while he made off with your money.

Just tonight CNBC used him as a poster boy for the Ponzi Scheme of the century. It would be too easy to dismiss this 50 Billion Dollar hustle as one of the first poster boys for the Pluto in Capricorn era which began in earnest on November 26th 2008. The Caprcorn money manager or mountain goat at the top of the proverbial financial mountain and with the destroyer Pluto going down with a big thud.
In the first part of article I am looking at more specifics (Saturn in Virgo style) when, where and how ie. his arrest just one day before the Full Moon (Dec. 12th @ 11:37 AM EST) In fact Bernie had a somewhat sudden fall from grace even though his dualistic and mental Chiron in clever Gemini was probably wounded much earlier in 2008 with the last passage of Pluto near the Galactic Center last summer.

Bernard Lawrence Madoff (IPA: /ˈmeɪd-ɑf/) (born April 29, 1938 with a charismatic Taurus Sun conjunct Uranus plus Venus his solar ruler conjunct the point of past gifts and lives. Madoff's steady, seemingly secure Taurus planets with Venus the 29th degree - naretic Degree, sometimes also called the Karmic Degree. From a spiritual point of few perhaps Venus the planet ruling currency, relationships and love indicates that Bernie is close but not quite ready to learn a master lesson. This planetary position signifies an urgent need to use the energy of Venus but with a Sabian Symbol: "A peacock parading on an ancient lawn." At the time of his detainment, Bernie was 70 and head of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC. From Bloomberg: "He was arrested today at 8:30 a.m. by the FBI and appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas Eaton in Manhattan federal court. "
Looking at the BiWheel Chart Above.
So many aspects converged including transiting Mars exactly SQ Uranus on 12-12-08 @ 1:50 AM and Mercury was void of course opposing Madoff's natal Chiron @ 27 Gemini - Sabian Symbol is right on the $$ so to speak: "Bankruptcy granted to him a man leaves the court." Worldwide

On the day prior to his arrest, Madoff told senior executives at the firm, which included his sons, that the management and advisory segment of the business was "basically, a giant Ponzi scheme" Madoff was then arrested based on a tip-off from his sons, Andrew and Mark. Mercury deals with youth and changed signs into Capricorn within 24 hours with the Cappy. ruling the father Note that Mercury figured prominently in this incident being Void of Course and transiting from Sagittarius into Capricorn the next day of the Full Moon @ 5:13 AM and exactly conjuncted Pluto's financial shadow @ 1:41 PM making for a big time scandal. It was around 12 PM the day of the lunaation, by the time the news of his precipitous fall from well respected business man to he perpetrator of one of the largest frauds ever! On the day of the arrest, transiting Jupiter is applying to an opposition with his natal Pluto @ 27 Cancer 55 - an aspect known as the easy come easy go transit.

Bernie Madoff Natal Chart Below:
The asteroid Vesta ruiling focus-committment and yes Investments is natally in risk-taking highly sopeculative Sagittarius flanked by Astraea (asteroid ruling justice) and Juno (partnerships-agreements) also in Sagittarius representing investment partners. Vesta is not only retrograde like the other two but closely opposing his natal silver tongued Mars @ 4 Gemini with a curous Sabian Symbol: A radical magazine displays a sensational front page . When he was caught, Vesta was transiting @ 29 Aries and retrograde so she was applying to a meeting with Bernie's Mercury (one of the main triggers in mundane AstroForensics) - note that Vesta in Aries is about a high degree of self involvement and even alienation can occur.
As we start to see more high profile financial tycoons bite the dust with Pluto's passage in Capricorn, it is a good idea to examine where and how reactive Vesta is in their charts.

Here is a real poster boy for the current Pluto in Capricorn conjunct Mars passage.

Jupiter's Ingress into Aquarius 2009: Still Time to Wake Up!

Chart Below set for Washington DC. at 10:42 AM EST for Jupiter's Debut in Aquarius

Early this Sunday, I took a walk in the frost covered morning just a few hours after the first qtr. moon had begun with an active Aries Moon square Sun in conservative Capricorn On the my hike, I began to ponder on how things will change with tomorrow's entrance of Jupiter into revolutionary Aquarius. Perhaps the most obvious aspect is that the freezing, cold weather will continue for much of the US and the world in January and February with most of the planets now in Winter signs Capricorn and Aquarius. Best not to get too comfortable in a what we expect since Uranian ruled Jupiter will also bring some weather extremes especially when joining Mars around February 18th.

In the chart above, Uranus the great awakener and modern ruler of Aquarius is sitting right on the Ascenant - some real surprises are in store for us. Uranus is opposing Saturn (authority, order, stability,) right on the descendant ruling overt agression along with foreign relations (Israel-Palestine conflict), treaties and/or disputes and agreements. Barack Obama, who has Jupiter @ 00 degrees Aquarius 51 in his natal chart will be in the middle of tomorrow's action involving Gov. Bill Richardson's withdrawal and the controversy concerning Rod R. Blagojevich appointment of Roland Burris for the senate sear. Jupiter is in the 11th house (natural house of Aquarius) In mundane astrology this rules the institutions of government such as the legislature, Congress, Senate or the House of Commons. The 11th represents the national purpose as well as its hopes and dreams of the nation. The overall economic stimulus package, of $675 billion to $775 billion may reflect tomorrow's Jupiter (laws) and Mercury (communications and transportation) applying to a SQ to the Moon in the 2nd. house of conditions of supply and demand, banks and the GNP. In this chart, the moon signifies the people, the masses, commoners and the population as a whole. Monday may just start out with an economic plan that is over rated to solve all our finanical problems.

Jupiter the brother of Pluto (now powerfully authoritarian in Capricorn) is the planet of expansion, vision, optimism and luck. Moving out of Saturn ruled Capricorn will definitely lighten things up yes but it is the word awakening that really defines Uranus the modern ruler of the water bearer.
With Monday's controversial beginning, Jupiter will immediately square the Moon newly arrived in Taurus (another fixed sign noted for stubborness) to blow everything out of proportion. One thing is for sure even though the Mayan 6th day started on Nov. 13th 2008 during the Galactic Underworld, it will be January 5th that will seem like the real start of this period. The Tzolkin Date: 13 IMIX is known as a time of awakening, unfolding, opening up to new possibilities. Most scholars use the words “enlightenment” and “renaissance” to define this creative period and with Jupiter's help it won't disappoint us.

Already the lighting glyph representing Aquarius seems to be sending shockwaves from dimensions: with strong quakes happening from Indonesia to swarms in Yellowstone.
Of course the invasion and destruction of Gaza and the Palestinians by Israel is another manifestation that will spark worldwide protests ala Aquarian energies in January.

It is easy for most astrologers on websites like to start trotting out keywords for Aquarius like: intuitive, networks, the internet, occult teachings, wavelengths, off the wall ideas, computer technology, breaking mental frontiers, detached compassion, futuristic thinking, humanitarian causes, groups, friendship, collaboration.
All of these adjectives are only surface descriptions and many of these qualities will be increased along with more interest in Astrology. We will began hearing MUCH more about Astrology just as we did about politics last year via mainstream and internet bolgs. Of course with the mass media in charge there will be snickering and disinformation regarding the sacred science.

Perhaps back in 1997, the last time Jupiter made a past debut in Aquarius and the cosmic trickster was also in Aquarius it was all about the internet, the boom but this time there are some major differences. Neptune is now in Aquarius and Uranus is in Pisces setting up a mutual receptive quality between these two planets that is mega-amplified. With Jupiter's entrance (coming right after Mercury began a journey in Aquarius) we have not only Neptune but the mighty wounded healer Chiron, N Node all pushed by the wisdom, abundance and generosity offered by the largest planet in our solar system.

Of course with Pluto moving into Capricorn and fueled by Mars (starting on Dec. 27th during the last new moon) so many control mechanisms are in place that it will take a real revolutionary shot of hope to create change. During the last passage of Jupiter in fearful, establishment oriented Capricorn, it has been an adage by New Agers not to rain on other people's parade by mentioning any conspiratorial concepts like the idea of the NWO (New World Order ala Bilderberg-Rothchild-Illuminati...Now with Jupiter's timely entrance we can began to really see the frightening face of Fascism start to crack. The American Heritage Dictionary defines Fascism as "a system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.”
The efforts to stop the New World Order will intensify along with the patriotic movement to uphold the constitution. So during this coming passage of Jupiter more videos like this How to Stop the New World Order will start hitting You Tube.
At the same time the governments of the world will try to follow Australia and China's model and began filtering objectionable websites.
It won't be just fighting the elite control by the common man during this time period..
UFO's and stories about many more sightings will barrage all forms of the media.
From Larry King to Oprah, someone will be talking about ET's and UFOs the entire year. Since all of the chatter and digital production on TV is enforced by a mandatory order to go to digital TV, NASA and the Vatican may start to make some test runs with project Blue Beam via mass sightings and one world religion.

Besides the above, the internet will be offering many new alternatives to the mainstream media's view of the world and many people that have already begun to awaken will push for a more peaceful and compassionate world. We should expect to see more of Alex Jones (born Feb. 11, 1974 ) with Sun and Jupiter together in Aquarius along with such icons as Oprah or even Brandy (2-11-79) among many other Aquarians. Occult and mystical ideas will play a lot better in 2009 with this incredible mutual reception of Jupiter-Neptune and Uranus along with Chiron's mysterious renewal of worldwide healings.
Perhaps even your author (born on February 11, 1950) will receive more recognition for steadily disseminating the off beat and unusual points of view.

Things are going to get a lot more crazy with Jupiter moving thru Aquarius but there is still time to be fully awake!

Israeli ground troops enter Gaza with Aries Moon SQ Pluto and Mars

An agressive Aries Moon challenged an active highly Cardinal Pluto early AM (4:19 PST) and the energy kept building with a classic Moon SQ Mars in the afternoon (12:18 PM PST)
Israel launched a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip on Saturday after a week-long air campaign against Hamas over the firing of rockets into the Jewish state.
All news reports are saying: Israeli tanks and infantry entered Gaza after nightfall Saturday - since Sunset was 4:52 PM - I am using a time of 8 PM to be rectified later - per this article
"The second stage of Operation Cast Lead to end rocket attacks by Gaza militants on southern Israeli cities began under cover of darkness about 8pm Israeli time (5am on Sunday AEST).
In the Invasion chart set for 8 PM EET - 2.00, Aries Moon sits in the 8th house of subterfuge and behind the scenes military buildup SQ Pluto and Mars in the 5th. house which in mundane astrology rules colonies, dependencies. Plus with this time MidHeaven is at 20 degrees corresponding to the Sun in the Israel Independence Chart exactly @ 23 degrees 39 minutes. By rectification I could assign a time of 8:13 and 14 seconds...
the Sun in a mundane shart shows the national identity and pride, or its lack.. The Sun's placement by sign in the case of Israel Taurus, aspect and house will mirror much of the character of the nation or organization. It will show the type of government and its administration.

By picking the time of 8 PM we get an ASC of 24 Leo which not only represents the Sabian Symbol: "A large camel crossing the desert." This also corresponds with the Independence Chart of Israel set for May 14Th 1948 where Sun @ 23 Taurus is SQ Pluto @ 12 Leo conjunct Saturn @ 16 Leo and closely conflicts Mars @ 28 Leo.
A fixed sign, Taurus can be stubborn like the Bull and does not easily bend to the ideas or coercion of others. With today's Moon SQ Mars the Israel natal chart reflects a dangerous square of Mars to the Sun a deadly, combative nature. Of course pride is one of the great characteristics of the royal sign of Leo and with Mars a harsh arrogance prevails. Perhaps the real kicker is that transitng Neptune Chiron and Neptune are TSQ the Israeli Chiron-South Node in Scoropio which can be revengeful and obsessive. In the Israeli Foundation chart Chiron is T-square to the Mars/Sun Square. Of course in this 1948 chart, the Sun is opposed by Chiron (the wounded healer), indicating a plaguing healing crisis in the life of this nation that creates tremendous pressure and their need to continually align with the truth of the past.

Notice Bi-Wheel with Israel Independence Chart in the Middle and Invasion on outside.

Palestinian medical sources said Saturday that at least 460 people have been killed and 2,750 wounded in Gaza.

As night fell on the eighth day of the bloody conflict, both sides remained defiant, vowing to stand their ground and accusing the other of breaking a cease-fire that had been in place until last month.
Here is a picture of Israeli Soldiers in camouflage and intent on the invasion:

Not long after Israel's ground incursion began, Hamas vowed to "fight until the last breath" and warned Israel that "Gaza will be your cemetery."

Looking back even farther then most timelines are going with this crisis,
Israel has blamed Hamas for breaking a truce that they themselves rejected back on Nov. 4th 2008. Apparently this bit of news was trumped by the US Election.

Gaza truce broken as Israeli raid kills six Hamas gunmen | World news |

HAMAS (in Arabic, an acronym for "Harakat Al-Muqawama Al-Islamia" -- Islamic Resistance Movement -- and a word meaning courage and bravery) is a radical Islamic fundamentalist organization which became active in the early stages of the intifada, operating primarily in the Gaza District but also in Judea and Samaria. HAMAS is the strongest opposition group to the peace process, to the PLO, and remains a powerful player in Middle East politics.
So far I have found both both dates for the inception date of Hamas (15 Dec 1987 and 14 Dec. 1987)
