Part One - The Comet and The Coincidence
Tomorrow's Pisces New Moon is fulfilling the promise reflecting all the qualities of this mutable water sign filled with romance, emotions, dreams and mystery. Of course the rapid acceleration of the galactic underworld's day sixth flowering of revolution has been hastened by a massive Aquarian alignment that is driving us just a bit crazy. Normally with a Pisces lunation it is a time when dreams, illusions and sometimes paranoid fantasies can appear to be reality and compassion sometimes replaces a more objective viewpoint. Except that the wild Aquarian ride since the Solar Eclipse on Jan. 26th and shocking Lunar Eclipse on Feb. 9th just hasn't given us any respite.
The New Moon occurs the same time two historic space events converge. The Green Comet Lulin is topping the show being a non-periodic comet (an orbital period of 200 years or more) which has never before entered our solar system and may not return. But there is more...recently SpaceWeather.com ran a story: COSMIC COINCIDENCE: What are the odds? On Tuesday morning, Feb. 24th, Saturn and Comet Lulin will converge in the constellation Leo only 2o apart. At the same time, Comet Lulin will be making its closest approach to Earth (38 million miles), while four of Saturn's moons transit the disk of the ringed planet. Oh, and the Moon will be New, providing dark skies for anyone who wishes to see the show
Yes Saturn that old devil is playing a prominent role in this astronomical drama while remaining in an astrological transit of major consequence: a synodic opposition to Uranus modern ruler of Aquarius. In the chart above for the UK - Saturn is close to Mid-Heaven @ 28 degrees Virgo with an interesting Sabian Symbol: "A man gaining secret knowledge from a scroll he is reading." The preceding image speaks of gaining knowledge via symbolism. This imagery alludes to the secret societies which so often are connected to the 12th house and Pisces or is it the 8th house and Scorpio? Actually the Aquarian alignment is forcing some major disclosure in the world of the freemasons, illuminati and various brotherhoods who realize that these waves of energy coming from outside the solar system is difficult to control.
The ringed planet and lord of karma always seems to want to block or keep a lid on things but it is now retrograde. Since Saturn is retrograde and the lightening flash of Uranus id direct we as a society are involved in a stringent examination aw to who is responsible for the current financial meltdown. With Mars moving to meet Neptune (both in Aquarius) on March 8th masses of people are starting to take action, protest, or attack others for reasons of ideology or beliefs. A recent protest in Ireland over the economy drew over 100,000 people. Rick Santelli's rant on CNBC was seen and shared by millions over the internet as discontent has been boiling over since the stimulus bill was passed. Aquaris is a rather stubborn fixed sign and is strongly driven by ideals and what is perceived as truth. Pisces of course is a lot more easy going but prone to multiple decetpions and with Pisces Sun Sextile Pluto a few days ago another poster boy for Pluto in Capricorn, Sir Allen Stanford, the Texan cricket tycoon, is being investigated by the FBI over possible criminal fraud charges. Today the Dow ended at it's lowest point in 12 years So the Dow is at it's lowes tsince back in 1997 when Jupiter was also in Aquarius and another great comet: Comet Hale-Bopp came roaring into view.
Saturn the ruler of the massive 3rd house cusp @ 29 Capricorn for the chart above holds all those electric aquarian planets in intercept. Saturn won't station direct till May 17, 2009 at which time the establishment and elite rulers around the world will be making their moves at greater control. Note that the 3rd. house corresponds to all forms of transportation, free speech, bridges, telephone, communications, the postal service, education, media, literature. The 3rd house also deals with treaties signed by the country and those aquarian planets are about to create some major reversals in merry old England. The Chart's ruler Jupiter is also in the 3rd house heading for a meeting with Neptune on May 27th just one day after Mars is sextile both Neptune and Jupiter. Jupiter Conjunct Neptune is not only a time of great hope, optimism and idealism part of the Obama
This transit also marks a time of more negatively, inflated expectations. It would be easy to use the ideologies and beliefs to motivate the masses which is why I say watch for the world managment team attempt to make a huge power play. Note that Venus which is found in the 4th house of the chart above dealing with society's traditions besides agriculture, farming, land, houses and real estate. Venus now in Aries is about to station retrograde on March 6th and move in to square with Pluto on April 3rd. which undoubtedly mark a time of financial insecurity when the concrete shoe drops on the River Thames.
The New Moon set above for 2-25-09 @ 1:35 AM Universal Time or on 2-24-09 @ 5:35 AM PST or 8:35 AM EST is exactly 6 degrees Pisces 34 minutes and the Sabian Symbol: "A cross lying on the rocks" or a more modern version - "A minister invites a dirty urchin into the church for a bite to eat. The boy stares in wonder at the opulent surroundings and the beautiful woman singing a hymn." Not only will the upcoming Piscean lunation stimulate levels of compassion but it will focus on the wealth and hyprocrisy of Big religion.

Picking the Oscar winners for Sunday's 81st Annual Academy awards is easy and really a big deal. Slum Dog Millionaire the Golden Globe Best Picture pick has all the elements of a winner - a Dickensian Drama and a love story of trials and tribulation.
On a night when compassion and empathy meet as Sun-Uranus in Pisces are in the 7th house and Venus Sextiles Neptune not just creativity shines but so does caring.
The academy will be dramatically remembering the Mumbai killings is part of this process.
Despite all the oceanic emotional response it has been said about Slum Dog and it's location in this excellent article - From City of God to Slumdog Millionaire: Filming ‘underbelly’ of nations… "Now, fast forward 30 years to the present. At one point in the British-Indian movie Slumdog Millionaire, we see a young girl being blinded by a gangster who shelters and feeds a small army of children — all unleashed on Mumbai on a daily basis to tug at the heart strings of its teeming millions."
No it really is not about who will win the Oscars, like the stunningly beautiful Kate Winslett (born Oct. 5, 1975) whose natal Sun-Pluto-Moon conjunction in Libra are well aligned via a lucky trine to transiting N Node-Mercury-Jupiter-Moon and Juno on Oscar Night. No the winners are to a great degree mirrors of humanity's current struggle
to express powerful emotional journeys and tales. Her performances in The Reader and Revolutionary Road reflect our Chironic wounds which desparately need healing as chiron and Neptune meet this year. Of course having Mercury Sextile Venus on Sunday night will focus on the beauty and semming innocence of Kate.
This is a night of the unexpected reveling in the faces of humanity undergoing redemption.
Phillip Andre "Mickey Rourke" Jr. (born Sept. 16, 1952) whose natal Saturn-Venus-Neptune conjunction in Libra is also favored by the Aquarian alignment also has made him sort of the serious romantic/idealistic victim. Despite his Mars in risky sports loving Sagittarius he is back on top of his game with the Wrestler. It has been said that his portrayal of the once Number One TV wrestling star Randy 'The Ram' Robinson, reduced to working behind a supermarket deli counter and living in a trailer, is nothing less than astonishing. It seems that Mickey Rourke has won the redemption contest reflecting our current powerful transit of Jupiter moving towards a conjunction with Neptune in May.
He may pretend to act surprised about winning Sunday night but having transiting N Node/Mercury @ 9 degrees Aquarius (Sabian: " A popularity that proves ephemeral.") almost dead on on his natal asteroid of partnership Juno. Also his natal SNode-Pluto-Moon in theatrical Leo opposed by transiting Neptune belies his recent statement of feigned incredulity.
Mickey Rourke: I've hacked off so many people in Hollywood, who the hell would give me an Oscar?
I would be totally remiss not to mention Sean Penn, who is in the running for best actor and also a favorite.
It has been said that Sean did an "uncanny job channeling of Milk's nasally eloquence, his skill in replicating Milk's puckish intelligence and his striking physical resemblance to the former San Francisco supervisor. " Of course the movie Milk and in many ways the milestone performance of Harvey Milk symbolizes the Uranus-Pisces side of of the historic synodic opposition to Saturn/Virgo representing the straight establishment and supporters of Proposition 8. From a purely astrological side since Sean's natal Sun-Uranus in Leo dramatic persona is at the time of the awards show opposing transiting Chiron-Neptune which could give him the nod. Also for Sean's own natal Mercury in Leo is opposed tonight's Aquarius Moon conjunct Jupiter which if not a lucky transit a chance for him to really speak his mind about current political issues.
The chart above for Oscar Night has all those Aquarian planets intercepted in the 6th house (set for 5PM PST). The 6th house which is connected to the sign Virgo relates to not only health but workers, the laboring classes, unions, labor organizations, wage conditions, employment and unemployment - the servants of the world. With the ongoing Saturn-Uranus synodic opposition this normally glitzy evening will reflect the battle between the haves and have nots. There will be a revolutionary energy both electric and demanding of a more egalitarian system and we might even be on the threshhold of the much anticipated screen actors guild strike which would be more devastating especially with so many out of work then last years WGA walkout.
Sunday's award presentations will be unique, emotional and much deeper than the usual glamour ridden ego fest with stubborn fixed signs on all cusps of the opening ceremonies. The modern ruler of all those electric planets in the sixth Uranus now in Pisces is direct yet in an unconventional, radical and highly volatile Void of Course position. The ghost of Heath Ledger will be around when he wins posthumously for best supporting actor in "The Dark Knight". Health Andrew Ledger (born April 4, 1979) will not only receive an oscar but be an integral part of this 81st annual emotional and mystical drama. Undoubtedly tears will be shed in sympathy with Heath's natal Piscean stellium of Hygeia, Venus, Ceres, S Node, vesta, Mercury, Mars tuned into the sensitivities of the audience. Perhaps his wife Michelle will step on stage and say a few choice words about how he was driven to his death by this crazy industry?!
No matter how wet the tears on Sunday night this Oscar love fest is really a celebration of creative drama mimicking life with Venus Sextile Neptune (ruler of the Pisces Sun).

Somewhere Over the Rainbow
After what has been a non-stop roller coaster ride of shock waves since the Lunar Eclipse on February 9th, a ray of hope is brightening like the rainbow in the Wizard of OZ.
We have had the unexpected Uranian frequencies working overtime combined with confusion, illusion and dangerous events occur. From two satellites crashing together over Sibera to 200 dolphins beaching as a warning to the 7.2 Quake and Tsunami warning in Indonesia to yesterday's horrific crash in Buffalo, NY. Is all is about to end as the sun shines with a new dawn?
We all know the lyrics and the promise from the musical Hair:
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
The Age of Aquarius
Now we have various websites saying that at 7:25 AM UT or 2:20 AM EST (chart above) on
February 14th the age begins - The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius - Saturday February 14, .....DO YOU FEEL IT?!
Even though Mars is conjunct or aligned with Jupiter (exact on Feb. 18th) and the Moon is in Libra (ruling the 7th) on the 14th, the Aquarian Age is a process not an event. I am not saying that those special 18 minutes won't hold great hope and love.
Tommorrow's blessed event (@ 7:25 AM UT) has some beautiful aspects for a great Valentine's day with Venus Sextile Venus for more affection, devotion and romance or Venus Sextile Jupiter which is wonderful for celebrations, meetings and yes weddings.
This is an auspicious day as the revelatory Aquarian stellium dominates, but the anchoring of Saturn and Pluto still need to wait till December 2020 before they ingress into Aquarius... Various Dates which have been predicted for the start of the Aquarian age are 2160 AD to out as far as 2600 AD to 3621 AD per Nicholas Campion in The Book of World Horoscopes.
More examination of the February 14th date contradicts a change from Pisces to Aquarius.
Actually the harmonious Libra Moon will not technically be in the 7th house till 7:51:51 AM and will be applying to a square with Mercury in Capricorn (2:46 PM UT) and Void of Course till 3:39 PM UT when the winged messenger moves into Aquarius. So the times given
for this magical moment of transition from the Piscean Age has that one irritant an aspect that makes it really hard to separate fact from fiction (Moon SQ Mercury in usually practical Capricorn but VOC). Squares to Mercury usually deal with perception and this one is classic when it comes to misunderstanding.
I am stressing this because Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius, is know to be a higher octave for Mercury.

He roller-coaster he got early warning
He got muddy water he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me
The second in this year's eclipse season, a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse
on February 9th may not appear as dramatic as the solar twin on January 26th. but the effects will be literally earth shocking. Best visibility for this lunar event will be over most of Asia, the Western US, Mexico and throughout the Pacific region which includes Australia where the horrific bush fires are racing through towns and farmland near Melbourne. An electric, revolutionary stellium in Aquarius marks this eclipse event for every location especially with Mars the ideological warrior in the sign of Aquarius catalyzing the group and the masses. Every location in the world has this surprising, innovative group passing over some cusp from San Francisco to New York. In San Francisco and the West Coast, Juno and Mars start the trek over the ascendant followed up by Jupiter, N Node, Sun, Chiron, Neptune - anything is possible from earthquakes to protests. In fact the entire western hemisphere is activated
This is one major eclipse filled with signs and wonders which have become prominent since the last January 26th Annualar Solar Eclipse. From Comet Lulin, the ever brightening messenger touching the the constellation Libra without a tail to cracks in the magnetosphere to icy lunar coronas, formed by spherical droplets of water in clouds to much more ET/UFO disclosure and spiritual revolution.
Leading up to tomorrow's lunar eclipse in Saros Series 11 North was the historic Feb. 4th second passage of Saturn Opposing Uranus then a Venus in fiery Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. Besides a deadly escalation of the fires combined with a massive heat wave, Feb. 4th saw the dashing of Daschle’s bid for Health and Human Services and Barack Obama’s struggle to push an economic stimulus bill through Congress. In space other events were coming together to create some real change of cosmic proportion. Lunar eclipses are usually reflect events that we have been contemplating, pondering and are associated with our thoughts and feelings whereas Solar events are not always consciously created. As we will see, lots of events that have been "perceived" to from out of the blue (like the current manipulated economic crisis) must be handled as we reach this Lunar Eclipse and Feb. 14th when Mercury joins the futuristic group of planets and enters Aquarius.
As Amitakh Stanford said: "Obama campaigned on the promise of change, but the composition of his “new” cabinet shows that somebody is dictating that things stay the same. Obama has also selected a myriad of bankers who are significantly linked to the economic collapse. He has further chosen the former First Lady as his Secretary of State, whose husband oversaw the demolition of Yugoslavia and the massacre at Waco." Tomorrow's eclipse which has the moon @ 21 degrees Leo for
an apt. Sabian Symbol: "Drunk chickens make giddy attempts to fly over the barnyard fence." We see that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is using the same failed strategies as Paulson hoisted on us last year. Geither is doing the same thing expecting different results: on Feb. 10th he will ASK FOR $1.3 TRILLION FOR BANKS. Now with Obama riding high on a most idealistic wave (Jupiter applying toward a conjunction with Neptun in May) crossing his ascendant, for some it is impossible to believe that Obama will become the scape goat. Incredulity will fade when he blamed for many things that are out of his control and many things that his predecessors have wrought upon him.
Relationships Declare Fierce Independence
Chart set for Feb. 9, 2009 @ 9:49 EST in DC has Aries rising at 24 degrees 39 minutes
with a curious Sabian Symbol: A double promise reveals it's inner and outer meanings. Or a more romantic Sabian image from Goldsmith: "Five red roses and an ornate valentine have been placed outside a woman's door." Expressions of desire, courtship and romance will be involved in persuading those stressed out lawmakers into passing the stimulus bill. Here we have Mars-Juno-Jupiter-N Node all intercepted in the 10th house in Aquarius. As we know the 10th house rules the government, the leadership or the ruling class. In a nation's chart it rules the national reputation and prestige, world opinion, the party in power, the chief executive. Focus will be on how cooperative efforts in as the world investment community gains confidence in the future dealing with world trade and business agreements.
Juno now in Aquarius speaks of an overwhelming desire to experience freedom in relationships and with Jupiter present a close by a philosophical and adventurous tone dominates. This stellium with Juno in the center will lead to cooperation in the short term. Sun-Chiron and Neptune in the 11th represent not only our national purpose which is wounded but more importantly the institutions of government such as the legislature, Congress and Senate. These are hopes which are opposed by the people (Moon in the 5th) the people who are still hypnotized by bread and circus or the demand for fun, entertainment, theaters, sports and social functions. Note that the economy through speculation and the Stock Exchange may have a slight boost after this eclipse at least until Venus turns retrograde. The heavy weighting of Aquarian planets could also mean
cooperation of energies which originate off world too.
Signs: Solar Wind Streaming Inside the Earth's magnetosphere and Comet Lulin
On the night of Feb. 4th as Mars made an ingress into Aquarius, the sun's magnetic field near Earth tipped south, opening a crack in Earth's magnetosphere and allowing solar wind to stream inside. Promptly, the skies over northern Russia turned green revealing the aurora at the top of the page. Also on Feb. 4th, a team of Italian astronomers witnessed "an intriguing phenomenon in Comet Lulin's tail." Team leader Ernesto Guido explained... While we were looking, part of the comet's plasma tail was torn away." Guido and colleagues believe the event was caused by a magnetic disturbance in the solar wind hitting the comet!
As I described in Exopolitics and Revolution as the Egg Cracks on the Ring of Fire Eclipse: "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 brought in for everyone to understand..
WingMakers are Here
Recently since the Solar Eclipse a memo from the group WingMakers has surfaced concerning a mysterious archaeological site called the Ancient Arrow Project. This later became a property of the US Government ala the Roswell incident. "In 1972, in a remote section of northern New Mexico, a group of hikers discovered an unusual artifact and pictographs within an obscure canyon. An archeologist from the University of New Mexico analyzed the artifact and searched the area where it was discovered, but found no signs that a prehistoric culture had established any permanent site in the canyon." It gets much deeper as we find out: All but one of the artifacts could be dated to the 8th century AD. The exception, known as the "compass" artifact, appeared to be an unusual form of technology, and was found among more typical artifacts like pottery and simple tools.
"Because of these two anomalies, the artifacts and the entire project quickly became the property of the US government, or more specifically, the National Security Agency. The ACIO, an ultra-secret, unacknowledged department of the National Security Agency responsible for reverse-engineering recovered extraterrestrial technologies took charge.
Now right before tomorrow's eclipse where Sun conjuncts Chiron (teacher of ancient revelations) and far out Neptune more is being brought to light in the world of exopolitics. The paintings found at this site bear a consistent sign of the constellation Taurus and of particular interest, the 7th, or the lost cluster, of Pleiades is represented. The ACIO team, led by Jamisson Neruda, finally succeeds, and determines that the creators of the site call themselves WingMakers. The WingMakers are thought to be representatives of the Central Race, the most ancient race of beings in the universe, and the legendary Creator Gods of life on all of the other galaxies. This background information is leading us to more disclosure right after this eclipse.
