1-Honorable Mention – New York’s Triple Threat
New Yorkers got a special something from the Approaching Biquintile this week as Governor Patterson announced his retirement, New York Congressman Charlie Rangel went under fire for a Bahamian trip and violent storms including snow and rain ravaged the region and shut down air travel.

Reform, re-work, re-do, re-try, re-plan, re-take…

From public opinion to individual bank accounts, the watch words this week sounded a lot like re-work, re-do and re-try. The Desire for Reforms Eclipse and the Biquintile Transit Charts are both ruled by the Moon.  Venus and Saturn are in exaltation at opposite ends of the chart in the Biquintile Transit view.

Look out! Revolutionary change may demand matyrs.

Below is the Desire for Reform Eclipse chart and the Biquintile Transits. The Desire for Reform Eclipse chart is depicted on the inner wheel and the Biquintile Transits chart is on the outer wheel.

Music’s Top Earner-The Boss

Following a close second behind U2, Bruce Springsteen made the cut for one of Music’s Top Earners in 2009. See http://music.msn.com/music/article.aspx?news=485096&GT1=28102.

It’s time to re-write those Bruce Springsteen biographies. The blue collar Jersey Boy who stole the hearts of Americans with a special kind of musical genius is still The Boss when it comes to packing the house and raking in the bucks for concert tours. As many of you know, Bruce emerged from humble beginnings in Freehold, NJ. The Astrodatabank biography says he bought his first guitar for $14 at age 18 at a local pawnshop. This was about a year after he suffered a concussion from a motorcycle accident at 17. The chart below is The Boss’ birth chart.

Finishing up a fabulous year, the 60-year old Springsteen was among the recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors, an annual award to figures from the world of arts for their contribution to American culture. The awards ceremony took place December 6, 2009. Below is a depiction of Springsteen’s fabulous stint with the Desire for Reforms eclipse and the Approaching Biquintile. Few will argue that Springsteen is not a mega music superstar, but many will agree that he’s some kinda genius.

Corpses, Cop Outs, Corruption and The Quincunx

24 12 2009

Quincunx Forced Choices between two positions: Weather vs Man

The earth and its weather patterns were the supreme power brokers this past weekend as the transiting Sun reached 150 degrees past or quincunx the Desire for Reforms Eclipse Sun. Learn about this Eclipse at: https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/jul-21-09-eclipse-event-timeline/ Below is a trendline of the Quincunx Events.



Can’t see me – Try Double Clicking!

Eighty-deaths across Europe due to freezing temperatures, a train stalled for 18-hours in the channel tunnel ,20+ inches of snow from Tennesee to Maine, and a sudden dust storm on Interstate 10 in Casa Grande, Arizona, reminded everyone who the boss really is – Mother Nature!( http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20091221/wl_afp/europestormweather;http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/19/AR2009121902158.html; http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/weather/12/19/winter.weather/index.htmhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/22/AR2009122201917.html)

Corruption v The Law, Freedom v Captivity, Drugs v Government

The earth and the sea were part of the Desire for Reforms Eclipse message last summer. The astronomical event also warned of trouble from the Axis of Evil, heavy and weighty matters, danger from manmade things like nukes, keeping one’s end of the bargain, and dangerous times overall. It brought to the fore a Saturn-Vertex conjunction sprouting problems in the house that Saturn rules. Clustered around it were the foreboding Arabic Part of Saturn and the ominous 7th Arabic Lot of Manilus (https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2009/07/27/jul-21-09-eclipse-event-timeline/). Here’s a listing of some events correlating to the Desire for Reform Eclipse with the problems characteristic of a quincunx “forcing choices between very different positions” (R. Hand, Horoscope Symbols).

(1)The lost, found, and kidnapped


(2) Cop Outs


(3) Nukes, War



(3) Drugs, Corruption

  • Tijuana becomes crucible for Mexican police reform. Tijuana’s new public safety chief, Julian Leyzaola, launches the city’s most aggressive police reform to date, in the middle of a raging drug war. His mantra: Behind every crime is a corrupt cop.(http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/20/AR2009122001190.html)
  • Slaying of drug war hero’s family shocks Mexico. Assailants gunned down the mother, aunt and siblings of a marine killed in a raid that took out one of Mexico’s most powerful cartel leaders. “The message is very clear: It’s to intimidate not only the government but its flesh and blood,” said Jorge Chabat, a Mexican expert on drug cartels. “It’s to intimidate those in the armed forces so they fear not only for their own lives, but the lives of their families.” (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/22/AR2009122201492.html)

Who’s the Boss?


Can’t see me – Try Double Clicking!

The bi-wheel view above shows the Desire for Reforms Eclipse in the inner wheel and the Transiting Quincunx on the outer wheel. At 11:30 pm, Sunday, December 20, 2009 the transiting Sun was exactly 150 degrees past or quincunx the Desire for Reforms Eclipse Sun. In the natural chart for Washington, DC the transiting Sun was at 29 degrees, 26 seconds Saggitarius, 4th House. An orb of 1.5 degrees was applied in my evaluation even though the aspect involved the Sun.


Quincunxes usually pertain to illnesses and death, but this particular quincunx brought to light issues that forced choices between two or more positions or opposing factions like weather vs man. In the bi-wheel chart, the transiting Sun moved to 29 degrees, 26 seconds in Saggitarius, 10th House; thus, triggering 10th house figures having to do with anyone who has power or is a power broker over another. After this past weekend, one thing remains clear, Mother Nature is the supreme power broker in our lives. If nothing else, the transiting quincunx Sun helped Mother Nature hold her position. She made us stop, think, call loved ones, read, open mail, cook at home and find creative and playful ways to spend our time albeit forced indoors, or if you live in Arizona stuck in traffic.


Mother’s Children


Brittany Murphy, Arnold Stang, Connie Hines, and the Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri were called home. One thing I discovered in researching the birth dates of hollywood entertainers is the sheer corruption in sourcing birth data. Anything goes in this realm. Brittany Murphy was alleged in the major press as having been born in Edison, New Jersey while other reports name her as being born in Atlanta, Georgia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany_Murphy ). Arnold Stang who was cast as “Jughead” in the original Archie radio show, played the voice of “Top Cat”, and went on to become a side kick to Milton Berle in the early days of television was no different. Original reports had Mr. Stang as being 91-years-old with a 1925 birthdate. Well, if you do the math this just doesn’t add up? Another report claimed he was born in New York, New York when most biographies listed him as being from Chelsea, Massachusetts (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0822205/bio) and (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Stang). Connie Hines, best known for her role with the famous talking horse “Mr. Ed,” had some moves up her sleeve claiming she was born in New York City when she was actually from Dedham, Massachusetts. I also found different reports for her birth year, but this was clarified by the LA Times in her obituary (http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=448604>1=28103).


But at least I was able to obtain a birth date (all be they false) from the hollywood crew, but no birthdate was given for pro-democracy and Iranian Dissident Cleric Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri. His obituary read that he was born in 1922 to a poor family in Najafabad. Montazeri was an independent thinker who had his occasional bursts of temper: as a farmer’s son, he continued to be a straight talker. By the age of 24, he was regarded as a bright Islamic scholar. His interest in mysticism (Could this have included astrology and divination involving the Arabic Parts and Alburini Lots!) and ethics led him to join Khomeini’s small circle of private and trusted students, and he established himself as a respected teacher of theology. On Monday, December 21st Tehran was bracing the city for riots.


Below I’ve provided birthcharts for Mother’s Children. The first are the two for Brittany Murphy. The next is Arnold Stang and the last is Connie Hines. I’ve written a few notes on the charts for all three that may be of interest to you as well as my fellow astrologers.

Well, I’d like to say that’s it for the next thirty days but some journalist/blogger neighbors of mine are brewing up schemes to sling dirt at Michelle Obama. They are desparate to dig up whatever shiggidy (Thanks Huggy Lo Down) is out there. If you’ve got a tip go to:http://hillbuzz.org/2009/12/22/michelle-obamas-bad-behavior/. Or, send your shiggidy to me as a comment or email me at: llazaro633@yahoo.com.  I won’t post it.  When I’m threw, I’ll report what I learn from this end of the reporting spectrum – with integrity of course!!

Orgasmic-Oslo, Obama and Wyclef Jean

14 12 2009
The Rise of Obama – Part 27

The Ingenious Power of Madison Avenue

Shhhh! There’s a few secrets the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee keep to themselves http://nobelpeaceprize.org/. The first is that Alfred Nobel laid down the bulk of his immense fortune to establish the Nobel Prizes. They don’t want you to know he was the creator of dynamite and manufacturer of armaments that killed people. A peace activist named Bertha von Sutter helped change his view (and maybe his soul) before he died. http://nobelpeaceprize.org/en_GB/alfred-nobel/.



Shhhh! Seriously, this is top secret stuff and nobody really knows. But get this, the second is that the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee want the world’s young people of the brown color spectrum to ‘see and believe they can be like Barack.’ They want young people to relate to Barack much the same way their grandparents and Angelina Jolie relate to ‘Muhammed Ali’ http://www.celebitchy.com/84499/angelina_jolie_gets_drunk_with_muhammad_ali_criticizes_darfur_policies/

Shhhh! The third, is that most of the world’s population resembles the brown color spectrum. So, the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee came up with a marketing strategy. It’s the same one used to get Uncle Jeb in Alabama to buy Uncle Ben’s Rice, but this time they’re targeting Uncle Muhammad and his extended family. They want Uncle Muhammad to buy into the Barack Hussein Obama image.

Shhhh! You don’t know the whole story now, this Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee, that had ties to Old World Colonialism, are betting that the new generations of people resembling the brown color spectrum will ‘just say no’ to terrorism after seeing Uncle Sam’s Barack Hussein Obama win their prize.

Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee used the Peace Prize and Nobel Concert much like Madison Avenue and portrayed images children in Taliban and al Quaeda hot spots like Farah Province in Afghanistan can relate to.

Shhhh! Don’t tell anybody, but they want these young people to believe: ‘the world’s changing because Barack – your brother – leads America and he wants to help you.’ Shhhh! They only tell people who need to know. This is classified stuff. Shhhh!

Trite! Well considering that most young people who resemble the brown color spectrum live in countries offering little to no access to free education I call that – a coup d’etat!

Why Brangelina Branding Wouldn’t Work

But the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee went a few steps further on behalf of the world’s young people who resemble the brown color spectrum by placing their favorite African American entertainers front and center. So, instead of inviting Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to host this year’s Nobel Concert festivities http://www.tmz.com/category/brad-and-angelina/, they invited Jada Pinkett and Will Smith http://www.upi.com/Entertainment_News/Music/2009/12/12/Actor-Smith-co-hosts-Nobel-Prize-concert/UPI-24641260640900/. And, making sure they had music that the young people who resemble the brown color spectrum actually listen to, the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee invited Hip-Hop-Reggae artist Wyclef Jean (http://wyclefjean.wordpress.com/ ). Make no mistake, Wyclef is no slouch in terms of philanthropy and humanitarianism. He has worked tirelessly on behalf of one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere – Haiti (www.yele.org). Why back in November, Wyclef and U2’s Bono were both recipients of the 2009 Robert Kennedy Human Rights Award-RIPPLE OF HOPE AWARD (http://www.rfkcenter.org/node/406 ). So thrilled was Wyclef about the opportunity to perform in the Nobel Concert that he twittered Snoop Dogg and snapped the photo below. Please note the angle. It seems, Wyclef wanted to make sure Snoop Dogg and the other Titans ($$$) of Hip-Hop were not mislead about his actually being there.

Many other entertainers were on the line up for the festivity. Check out the concert for “free” on CNN Live at: http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/showbiz/2009/12/11/nat.nobel.peace.prize.concert.cnn?iref=allsearch

Is History Repeating Itself?

If you still need help swallowing the Madison Avenue marketing strategy the Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee used to determine if Obama should get their award, here’s help through a little known history fact:

Despite widespread Jim Crow, one million, two hundred thousand African Americans fought in World War II.

This number excludes Ethiopians.

Every historian agrees that without this effort, all would’ve been lost. Unlike Americans, Europe remembers! The truth is The Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee is aware that the great war against terror is raging – everywhere! They know this war can’t be won without winning the hearts, minds, and commitment of everyone especially all those young people in Africa, the Mid-East, and Asia who resemble the brown color spectrum. Oh, this is old stuff. It’s been done before right here in the U.S. If you haven’t, check out Spike Lee’s big screen adaptation of James McBride’s World War II epic Miracle at St. Anna. Specifically, pay attention to the first 45-minutes when the Nazi’s attempted to wreak havoc among military members of Uncle Sam’s brown color spectrum, by broadcasting reminders of their home life under Jim Crow and inviting them to switch sides ( http://www.slashfilm.com/2008/06/12/spike-lee’s-miracle-at-st-anna-movie-trailer/ ). After you check the movie out, ask yourself what motivated those men to keep fighting for America and the allies? Could it have been something they could relate to like the brutality of fascism? Or, was it just a paycheck? (Frankly, I would have run like hell if it were the latter.) The Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee is acutely aware of the sacrifices that soon will be made in the name of Peace. That’s why their decision to give Obama the Nobel Peace Prize was larger than popular U.S. sentiment, their decision was for the World with the hope of possibly reaching teenagers like this one.

An American Hero: Meet Wyclef Jean


What Oslo’s Desire for Reform Eclipse brought to Wyclef is really an astrological text book study of how important an eclipse can be in revealing destiny. First and foremost, the Oslo Desire for Reforms Eclipse brought Wyclef an invitation to perform due to something he had done, or was about to do. Below is a view of Wyclef’s Birth chart and the Oslo Desire for Reforms Eclipse. Wyclef’s birth chart is in the inner wheel and the Oslo Desire for Reforms Eclipse is the outer wheel. This view shows:

  • Eclipse Sun-Moon sextile Wyclef’s natal Sun-Uranus. Some unexpected event(s) would easily attract Wyclef’s attention.
  • Eclipse Venus conjunct Wyclef’s natal Saturn. Reveals Wyclef’s sensitivity and willingness to make personal sacrifices for families and children. This Saturn-Venus aspect is also trine his Sun-Uranus meaning he would respond to this unexpected event with his heart in his hands. It also guaranteed that he would use his influence to help stricken families and children and make sure help went where it was needed most.
  • Wyclef’s Natal North Node, 1st house, Capricorn. Reveals his ability to identify and assume a ‘father like’ responsibility for the plight of people.
  • Eclipse Pluto, 12th house Capricorn transiting Wyclef’s 12th house. Reveals his determination to bring aid and reforms despite hidden enemies and detractors.
  • Eclipse Pluto, 12th house Capricorn conjunct Wyclef’s natal Jupiter, 12th house Capricorn. Jupiter provides the greater benefit to Wyclef’s efforts to bring aid and reforms despite hidden enemies and detractors.
  • Eclipse Pluto, 12th house Capricorn trine Wyclef’s natal Vertex, 8th house, Virgo. Foretells of Wyclef’s new phase and lot in life.
  • Eclipse Vertex, 11th house, Sagittarius conjunct Wyclef’s natal Neptune 11th house, Sagittarius. This guaranteed that Wyclef would use his money, the media and his music industry influences to respond as a humanitarian for his people. Often, this aspect brings premonitions that something big is on the horizon. Most people respond by preparing themselves spiritually. Let’s hope Wyclef got a cosmic heads up.
In the Big Scheme of Things
I call the following view In the Big Scheme of Things. It features the Oslo Desire for Reforms Eclipse in the inner wheel, the Oslo Transits in the middle wheel, and Wyclef Jean’s Birth Chart in the outer wheel. Again, the Oslo Desire for Reforms Eclipse promised Wyclef a new lease on life. Here’s how: (1) The Eclipse Sun-Moon lands in the first house of personal affairs. This is sextile Wyclef’s Sun-Uranus in the 4th house of new beginnings. The Nobel Concert event in Oslo is Wyclef’s new lease on life and, (2) The 6th house of daily affairs featuring Oslo’s Eclipse Pluto, Oslo’s transiting Pluto-Vertex, and Wyclef’s natal Jupiter promise that Wyclef Jean’s transformation would help him throw away the old and usher in the new for the greater good. Let’s wish Wyclef the best as he takes his place as humanitarian and peace activist on the World’s stage.
UFO?
I’m an astrologer. I chart and interpret the planets, stars, eclipses and other lunar signs from the heavens. So I could not close without mentioning that the morning after The Norwegian Nobel Prize festivities, a spectacular blue spiral appeared in the skies. Did this anomaly mark the departure of a silent luminary serving as a Norwegian Nobel Prize Committee Member? Or, an important stakeholder? I’m featuring a picture below courtesy of the Sun tabloid in the United Kingdom. They ran the acronym UFO on the front page Thursday, December 10, 2009. After the event, government officials scrambled to report that this occurrence was nothing more than a military test operation in the White Sea by the Russians. But some of my sky watcher friends believe otherwise. To find out more about UFOs photographed in and around the White House and U.S. Capitol check out the photos acclaimed photographer Wil Allen has posted on behalf of UFO DC at: http://www.ufodc.com/

Opium Heroin War

7 12 2009
Nude Provacatuese by The_Betty
The Rise of Obama Series – Part 25

Clash of the Titans

“Defeat the Taliban. Secure the Population.” was the mission General McChrystal presented to the President and his top security advisors during a 2-month long Afghanistan Review.

“Is that really what you think your mission is?” a security advisor in the White House Situation Room asked.  For more details see OBama Pushed for Faster Surge at:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/05/AR2009120501376.html

The McChrystal Effect on Obama

Sometime after this exchange between September 21st and November 11th, “no drama Obama” or “Obi Wan” as he is affectionately referred to lost his cool. One account quotes Obama as saying: “I don’t want to be going to Walter Reed for another eight years.” Another says he did more than encourage his advisors toward thinking out of the box by saying: “We need to send a message to Karzai of a short-leash, which is necessary now.” The Washington Post reported a White House source saying that Obama didn’t realize he had lost his cool until he reviewed notes taken by a White House Aide.

Obi Wan – what happened?

Our President was forced out of character because he found himself between a rock, a hard place, and a bunch of generals who were not listening. Our President was left with no other option but to personally spearhead the initiative to change the Afghan War mission, force his advisors to re-define the goals, and make a very unpopular war his own. I think, for the benefit of the generals, he may have said “dammit” and tossed his pen on the table a few times.

Right about now, General McChrystal, is probably experiencing what usually happens when you get caught leaking details to the public without first consulting the chief administrator – a complete change of mission, 10,000 fewer troops than requested, and a tight deadline with hard core periodic baseline reviews in preparation for a major one coming up in December 2010. Karzai better behave!

You can learn more about this timeline at: http://aerolithicastrology.blogspot.com/2009/07/jul-21-09-eclipse-event-timeline.html

Degrade v. Defeat
But what does: “degrade the influence of the Taliban so they can no longer threaten the Afghan government’s survival” mean. After reading the mission statement and the negotiations behind achieving it, I took a different look at The Desire for Reforms Eclipse of July 21, 2009 and the Afghan Strategy Sesquiquadrate Transits of December 6, 2009 to find answers.  Find out about the Desire for Reforms Eclipse at: http://aerolithicastrology.blogspot.com/2009/07/solar-eclipse-aims-to-start-something.html

The chart below depicts the Desire for Reforms Eclipse in the inner wheel and the Afghan Sesquiquadrate Transits on the outer wheel. The pattern of the chart is Seesaw which brings to mind – imbalance. The Suns of the two charts are approximately 135 degrees apart. Mercury is ruling the 9th house where the transiting Sun resides in the decanent of Mars. Both Saturns are on the right side of the chart generating restrictions in full public view and both Plutos are on the left side of the chart plotting reforms somewhat obscured from view. Transiting Saturn in Libra (Obama) is squaring both Plutos (McChrystal and Pentagon Officials) frustrating restrictions in coming to a balanced agreement about reforms. This weekend, The Washington Post confirmed reports that Obama, displeased with the results, sent his Generals back to the drawing board several times.

At this juncture, I feel its safe to say that the Afghanistan, in the charts below, is depicted by Neptune in the 12th house. America is there to assist an afflicted group of people – Afghan citizens. All of the Afghan War Meeting participants seemed to be in agreement that this part of their mission had not changed. Also in agreement were our President and Vice-President. Obama and Biden both insisted on taking into consideration lessons from the past. This gave center stage to Iraq war hero General Petraeus, now the head of U.S. Central Command. He was described “as all too happy” to convey his lessons learned. He was joined by another war hero General James E. Cartwright, a Marine Corps aviator and vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Cartwright spearheaded a change in focus when he proclaimed “the number of additional U.S. troops was less important than how quickly they arrived and departed. A deadline,” he added, “might focus Karzai’s mind.” These were our Afghanistan War Meeting heroes and they emerged as a result of the 11th house North Node in trine aspect to the Reform chart’s Saturn-Vertex conjunction. The North Node infers shared causes, heroes, and heroic actions despite delays and obvious inhibitions conveyed by the influence of Saturn’s rulership in the 11th house and Saturn conjunct Vertex in the 7th.


About the heavy and weighty matters
The next view depicts a tri-wheel chart with President Obama’s Natal Chart on the inside wheel, the Afghan Strategy Sesquiquadrate Chart in the middle wheel and the Desire for Reforms Eclipse Chart on the outer wheel. Yes, the Afghan Strategy chart’s Mars is sitting on top of the descendant making a semi-sextile aspect to Saturn-Vertex but that’s something we all can see and hear about in the news. What we’re not privy to is buried (Part of Saturn) in the 12th House where we find the North Nodes of the Afghan Strategy and Desire Charts conjunct President Obama’s natal Jupiter and Saturn.

The Opium-Heroin War
The North Nodes conjunct Jupiter and Saturn in the 12th house are telling us that Obama’s war focus will be on the Opium trade and the rehabilitation of the Afghan population so they can be free of their dependence on the income of poppies and casual use of Opium. Until then, they won’t be able to effectively defend their country from insurgents or coups. You see, the Afghan’s use or overuse of Opium will soon be transformed into a health issue that threatens to interfere and/or conflict with the work Karzai and the Afghan people need to get done in order to stabilize the country. This is why India, Pakistan, China and South Korea are important allies in this mission. The old, secret, spice routes probably ebb in and out of these countries. The Opium and Heroin may even leave for Europe and the US from clandestine Far East ports.

Over the past 10-days reports have surfaced about a DEA Agent killed in Afghanistan. It seems, our government has already sent out tentacles to assess the sophistication of our Opium-Heroin War adversaries.

The next aspect set to stir events from the Desire of Reforms Eclipse of July 21, 2009 is the Bi-Quintile. I’ll be circulating my astrological predictions for this astronomical event soon.  You can find out more about the Desire for Reforms Eclipse of July 21, 2009 at:  http://aerolithicastrology.blogspot.com/2009/07/solar-eclipse-aims-to-start-something.html.

The Nude Provacateuse by The_Betty has based The Rise of Obama Series on the premise that the Eclipse of August 1, 2008 was the astronomical event opening the road for Barack Obama’s assent to the presidency, and the Desire for Reforms Eclipse of July 21, 2009 is responsible for influencing his 2009-10 political agenda.  Find out more about History in the Making at:  http://aerolithicastrology.blogspot.com/2009/11/rise-of-obama-history-in-making.html.
