Sex, Chaos, Lies, Divorce: The Opposition and What’s Up with Dennis Hopper?

20 01 2010

On the eve of the Sun’s opposition to the July 21, 2009 Desire for Reforms Eclipse, the dark side of the Obama Administration was slowly being revealed. In a new book “Game Change” by NY Time’s Mark Halperin and New York Magazine’s John Heilemann, events are reconsructed after the fact by operatives who may have had more interest in settling scores then setting the record straight. While this technique makes the political stories made for TV movie fodder, I wonder about our obsession with identifying a devil in Obama’s camp.

But that’s not the only development. The devils in the Transit Sun’s opposition to the July 21, 2009 Desire for Reforms Eclipse are few but their combined magnitude is great. They include: (1) a very public birthday dinner date between Barack and Michelle (White House sources told a Globe reporter that the two get so angry they often sleep in separate bedrooms, Jan 18 2010), (2) renewed fighting in downtown Kabul with weapons grade bombs, (3) food riots and looting in earthquake torn Haiti requiring a military response, and (4) new earthquakes erupt in Central America.

Let’s take a quick look at the orbiting daytime planets in Central America and the Caribbean one (1) day before the Sun’s opposition by transit. Coursing across the Caribbean are Mars, Chiron and Sedna. Chiron is the asteriod of painful transformations. It was coursing right through the Haitian peninsula where known faults exist. Due west are Guatemala and El Salvador where another earthquake was reported on Monday, January 18th. Then there is Sedna. She is the newbie on the block discovered just a few years ago. Sedna is half fish. She is the mistress of life and death to the Inuit people. While Sedna is not considered strong outside artic waters, when teamed with Chiron and Mars she may be able to wield some damage. For example, if Sedna is not respected she begins to feel her hands sear with pain and, in her misery, sends sickness, storms, and starvation to punish the humans. Lastly, we have Mars. From this week’s news reports a number of Mars like events have erupted in Haiti. News accounts feature men with large knives and machetes fanning out through the center of the city of Port Au Prince creating chaos. Another account notes the build-up of American and UN forces and fire power to keep Haitian unrests under control.

Below I’ve circled the region where the earthquakes struck. Mars‘ path is a red dotted line, Sedna’s path is a white line and Chiron is a green line. To view a larger image click once on the picture below.
By January 19, 2010 at approximately 10:45 am trouble will clear out of the Caribbean. Food will get through and starvation will abate as Mars, Sedna and Chiron widen their arc and move to the coast of Brazil. What remains is Uranus and its path is through Guatemala.

Many mundane astrologers believe Solar Maps are essential in predicting the occurrence of events throughout the world. Today’s findings prove there is a great deal of credence in this belief especially in regard to Earth’s weather patterns and geology. However, eclipses still hold reign over seasonal occurrences and the rise and fall of empires.

Moving forward, below is a look at the Desire for Reforms Eclipse and the current Transits. The Reforms Eclipse is on the inner wheel and the Transits are on the outer wheel. To view a larger image click once on the picture below.


Here’s another view of our empire with the Desire for Reforms Eclipse on the inner wheel, the Transits in the center Wheel and President Barack Obama’s Birth Chart on the outer wheel. One thing of note is how Barack Obama’s Jupiter seems to negate the apparent opposition formed by the Reforms Eclipse Sun and the Transits’ Sun.

So now that we’ve come to a milestone in tracking the effects of the separating aspects to the Desire for Reform Eclipse, let’s take a look at the transits that will now be applying to the Desire for Reform Eclipse Sun and Moon.

  1. The Quincunx – 150 degrees –  (What happened last time? Winter storms coursed the northeast and Europe)
  2. The Biquintile – 144 degrees – (What happened last time? President made tough decisions about Afghanistan)
  3. The Sesquisquare – 135 degrees –  (What happened last time? Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize)
  4. The Trine – 120 degrees –  (What happened last time? Health reform made it through the house)
  5. The Square – 90 degrees –  (What happened last time? Nidal Malik Hassan made plans for the Fort Hood Massacre. Within 10 -12 days Hassan executed his plan.)
  6. The Quintile – 72 degrees – ?
  7. The Sextile – 60 degrees-air – ?

Stay tuned!

So, what’s up with Dennis Hopper?


Transiting Saturn-Vertex may be the culprit for Dennis Hopper’s current physical and financial woes. Right now Hopper who is 73 is in the midst of a physical challenge with prostate cancer, but to everyone’s surprise he announced today that he was seeking a divorce from his wife of 14-years. Is this the way to go when fighting to survive a life threatening illness? What’s up with Dennis Hopper?

Let us keep our prayers fervent for Dennis Hopper.

1-Minute Delineations – A Mini Course on Decans

Decans were used during the middle ages and renaissance periods up through the decline of astrology during the eighteenth century. H. E Wedeck in his book called the Dictionary of Astrology defines decans as follows “…ten degrees of each zodical sign are dedicated to a plaent which assumes influence when it passes through this ten-degree space. This ten degree space is called a decan. There are thirty-six decans at ten degrees. In these the planets, except the Sun and the Moon alternate.” Remember, the Sun and Moon are not planets.

The banner on this blog page depicts a horoscope with decans. Prior to the decline of astrology decans made it easy for an astrologer to dig deeper into the meaning of a planets’ placement. Much like the Arabic Parts, the proper definition, use and application of decans probably fell into obscurity and misuse shortly after the decline of astrology. As a result, modern day astrologers moved away from using them opting to show a more technical or astronomical definition for the placement and occurrence of astrological phenomena in horoscopic charts.  But something went missing — fun!!

In general, decans can make delineations easy, simple, and fun. They are a great tool for teaching the basics of astrology, as an ice-breaker at parties, or in groups. What’s so fun about decans? Let’s take a look at Michelle Obama’s chart and do a 1-minute delineation using astrological key words.


Another example that I did not add to the view above is Michelle’s Mercury in Capricorn, 8th house. Now most astrologers will agree that the key words for Michelle’s Mercury are:

Communications, logic, leadership, in banking, taxes, the law, sex, death, secrets.

Here’s the same interpretation with the decan of Saturn.

Careful responsibility and discipline in communications, logic, leadership, in banking, taxes, the law, sex, death, secrets.

Is she some type of an attorney or CPA? Yes.

Michelle was a corporate attorney. Here, the decan has allowed us to see how seriously Michelle takes her responsibility when she is acting out her Mercury.

So the next time you’re stuck delineating by triplicities, rulers, elements, retrogrades, void of course, aspects, etc., and find yourself totally confused, pull up a chart featuring decans and empower your interpretation.   Don’t knock it, or allow anyone to dissuade you because people equate showmanship with intelligence and talent. Who knows, you may pique enough interest to generate several commissions for indepth readings. Also, try tracking your progressed Sun, moon, mercury and venus with the decans to give yourself a daily reading. I’ve met some very good astrologers who exclusively employed the use of decans in tracking the Sun, moon and other fast moving planets for daily readings. I was and remain amazed!

Until the approaching quincunx 30 days from now – Peace,

Kiss, Arousal, Sex: The Obama Overachiever Cure

31 12 2009
While playing golf back in 2001, President George W. Bush was interrupted with urgent news: New York City’s Twin Towers were attacked and burned to the ground! Nevertheless, he insisted on 8-hours of sleep. Cross him and OMG his mother former First Lady Barbara Bush may have shown. Not so for President Barack Obama. Latest news reports has our current President averaging five to six hours of sleep. In fact, a few weeks ago on a long flight back from Oslo he admitted to members of the press: “I’m Tired.”

But the gravity of war did take its toll in other ways, writes Julie Pace for the Associated Press. “With this one, you feel it viscerally,” Obama said in a White House interview with ABC News. “You lose sleep. You think about families. You think about history.”

Although he may need a vacation, they say President Obama still thrives on a keeping a busy schedule and continues to scoff at critics who say he’s taken on too much in his first year. Obama often works late into the night, averaging five or six hours of sleep, but making do with less when need be. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091229/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_tired_obama


Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.

Little Sleep: The sign of an Overachiever

A not so well known study in the Netherlands looked at people with insomnia and found that they’re actually over-achievers. After making sure their subjects were deprived sleep, they tested them and found they performed well. The study concluded these people were hyper-aroused and this helped compensate for their brain tiredness.          http://www.abc.net.au/health/minutes/stories/2008/12/29/2447589.htm


I wanted to find out more about the overachiever indicator of Little Sleep and found a story about Yoshiro Nakamatsu who changed his name to Nakamats. He could be one of the most influential scientists of all time, but I’ve never heard of him. It’s reported that he has over 3,200 patents to his name, “leaving Thomas Edison in the dust.” He eats one meal per day and sleeps only four hours, while using one of his inventions: a chair that can “rest the body and sharpen the mind” when he needs it. So convinced is he of his invention, Nakamat has re-calculated his life span. He expects to live to be 144 years old.          http://www.asylum.com/2009/12/02/prolific-people-by-the-numbers-5-extreme-overachievers/


Then I found a news reports confirming that after the Senate held a 1 a.m. vote on health care last week, Obama stayed awake to see the results despite the fact he had a full schedule starting the next day before 8:00 a.m.

President Obama appears to be an overachiever.

Is the President thinking rationally? Is Obama being sensible? If you answered no, chances are our President is in fact an over-achiever. Here are some classic overachiever traits outlined by Performance Pyschologist John Eliot, Ph.D. You can find more details about his program and book Overachievement at:      (http://www.overachievement.com/ )

  • Overachievement is counterintuitive. (Is that what happened to Obi Wan?)
  • Overachievers don’t think reasonably, sensibly or rationally. (Is that what happened to the healthcare public option?)
  • BE an exception. Overachievers thrive under pressure—welcome pressure, enjoy it and make it work to their advantage. (Most critics agree Obama has taken on too much in his first year.).
  • Handle Failure. It’s not rejection that distinguishes achievers from nonachievers—it’s the way they handle failure. (Obama will not concede failure in healthcare reform.)
  • Most successful people can share their weaknesses. They get excited about learning so they can turn weaknesses into strengths. ( In every speech, Obama highlights his flawed expectations and turns it into a strength and often White House proposals for reforms.).
  • Arrogant S.O.B.s run the world. A performer can never have too much self-assurance. The best in every field are likely to strike most people as irrationally confident, but that’s how they got to the top. (Obama expects Afghanistan’s President Karzai to do as he is told and boot the corrupters out of office. Now!).
  • Legends never say they’re sorry. High achievers dwell on what they do well—and spend very little time evaluating themselves and their performances. (Obama did not apologize for taking the Nobel Prize. He took it, noted the opposition, thanked folks and left the building.)
  • The best need stress. Stress is the high-level performer’s Power Bar. (The President allowed Pentagon Generals to stress him out for 2-months before making a decision. He sent them back to the drawing board numerous times. He loved every minute of it.)
  • Put the “I” in “team.” By definition, striving to be exceptional puts you outside the team. If you’re a maverick CEO, you’re a colorful genius. The best performers not only think exceptionally, they teach their colleagues to think that way too. (Some news media folk gained large salaries for counting how many times the President said “I” in speeches. Were they looking for a follower?)
  • What limits? If you want to find out what you’re capable of, you can’t put limits on yourself, and you definitely can’t be cautious. (Despite the fact he’s had more death threats than any other President in modern history, Obama took 10 overseas trips in the first year and pumped up his own legislative schedule.)
  • Only wimps weigh the risk. For exceptional people, risks equal rewards. The challenge of uncertainty is the fun of high-performance—and that’s where overachievement lies. (President Obama showed little interest in weighing the risk of pulling out of Afghanistan too soon until his mandate is met.)

The Role of the First Lady

But I had to find out more, especially about the role spouses play. Here’s some insight on overachievement and Little Sleep from Dr. Laura Berman, the Director of The Berman Center for women’s sexual health. A few years ago she told The Situation’s Tucker Carlson about how sex can help sleep deprivation. To begin Carlson asked: “Is there really a sleep crisis?”

“There really is,” Berman answered. “But I think the main reason people are sleepless is primarily because of stress and depression more than anything else. People are not having enough sex. And ironically, the amazing part is that sex can actually really help you with sleep .And it is a real issue because it becomes a vicious cycle.”

Before concluding the interview Carlson asked if Dr. Berman had any more tips. She answered:

“I actually just did a big study on intimacy and found that couples who kiss regularly and spontaneously not only have higher levels of intimacy, general intimacy, but also have decreased levels of stress and depression. So, try just kissing your partner more and cuddling them more.” http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11326819/

Another thing I learned in researching overachievers and Little Sleep is some overachiever behavior can be managed. Here’s a tip I found by emerrill a group member of ehow: http://www.ehow.com/how_2223766_manage-overachievers.html

“Try to prevent him from burning out. Overachievers lose track of time when they’re working. They aren’t trying to impress anyone with those late hours; they’re just in a dream state of total absorption in their task.”

So when the Senate wasn’t due to wrap up until 1 a.m., and the president was still fixated on C-Span, it was the First Lady’s responsibility to re-direct her husband’s interest (kissing, cuddling, etc) while reminding him that sitting up and waiting on a vote was what he hired his staff to do. “Rahm will brief you on the results at breakfast,” she should have responded.

But Dr. Berman and the ehow group members are speaking of people who have real love for one another. Frankly, since the inaguration, I haven’t seen the Obamas partake in general, family like intimacy? Michelle’s primary role as First Lady is to see about her husband’s physical and emotional well being. Sometimes standing by or around just won’t do. Besides, I believe it’s a poor commentary on the First Lady if her hubby whines to the press about how “tired” he is! Is Michelle down on her job?

In Search of the Kiss

Michelle is down in approval ratings according to recent Polls. Her score sank 11 points. http://www.eurweb.com/story/eur58330.cfm It seems, the American people are just not feeling Michelle Obama.   And, after a public “stinky feet” comment about the President, I’m not feeling Michelle Obama. I believe the American people are picking up on some negative things about Michelle. Are they beginning to believe that her relationship with him is all show and it’s just now being reflected in the polls? Our president obviously needs a good night’s sleep.  According to most sleep scientists there’s one non-prescriptive way Michelle can get our president (the overachiever) to take the deep snooze he deserves – Sex.

Now don’t get me wrong, Michelle appears as if she’s built for comfort, but this may not be enough to keep the flame between a Leo and a Capricorn alive. Michelle is a January Capricorn. Her Natal Sun is – Whoa! – in Opposition to Barack’s Natal Sun. Now without an exact birth time I cannot be definitive about the rising sign, but chances are Michelle’s Sun is rarely feeling Barack’s Sun. In fact, since March 2009 I’ve seen nothing of note that the spark still remains.

Check out this Christmas Video where it looks as if the couple are rehearsed.  In the video Obama reaches for Michelle’s knee.  I’m sure you’ll agree this was not what she wanted and her response was telling.                           http://www.examiner.com/x-/x-19673-Michelle-Obama-Examiner~y2009m12d22-Michelle-Obamas-Christmas-gift-for-Barack-Obama

In Search of Arousal

Even Clifford Bryan the reporter for the Michelle Obama Examiner has some misgivings:

“One inference that we’ve come up with is that without Michelle Obama; Barack Obama as we know him would cease to exist. This comes after careful examination of observable displays such as “fist bumps” in which President Obama participated in. We’ve come to the conclusion that these seemingly impromptu displays of solidarity are a little too well rehearsed. They don’t seem quite natural.” http://www.examiner.com/x-/x-19673-Michelle-Obama-Examiner~y2009m12d25-Did-Barack-Obama-and-Michelle-Obama-get-married-for-mostly-political-reasons-

If you follow the Examiner’s link, you’ll see what Clifford means by: They don’t seem quite natural. Like it or not, Obama has been working his job non-stop for weeks and needs a vacation. Michelle should appear anxious about getting away with her overachiever. Anyone who has dated an overachiever knows you have to compete with their constant I’ve got to win and finish before the other guy” arousals. Yet, on their way to Hawaii in photo after photo, he’s holding on to the kids. The only time they stand together is in public for Photo Ops.  How could anyone be convinced the President was on his way toward getting a good rest?

I don’t agree with everything Clifford Bryan says. Yet, after one year into the Obamas, I’m beginning to think that Clifford Bryan may be on to something and it’s not lots of hot, spicy love.

In Search of Sex

I’ve created a synastry chart delineation between Michelle and Barack. A synastry chart is a comparison of two or more natal charts in order to analyze the interaction of the individuals involved. My comparison may be flawed because I’ve not been able to determine Michelle’s exact time of birth and frankly – no one else has! An exact birth time determines the positioning of the Moon and the Rising Sign or Ascendant. For Michelle’s chart, which was caste at 12 Noon, her Ascendant is Taurus and her Midheaven is Capricorn.

Charting love begins with an examination of the Moon and Venus. If the Moon and Venus in the two charts favorably aspect each other, the two involved will find few obstacles in starting a relationship. However, for relationships to be longlasting, a slower planet like Saturn, Neptune and Pluto need to be involved. Remember the phrase: I love you but I’m not in love with you. In astrology its easy to determine the I love you part, but determining how much in love requires a steady anchor in the form of a slower planet. Below, I’ve listed the pros and cons of the synastry chart in a table.

Michelle and Barack: Relationship Pros and Cons

Intrigue and the Obamas: A delineation

For starters the Pros show that the relationship began out of love. This is indicated by good aspects involving the Moon, Venus, Sun and Mars (See items 1,2,3,4, and 5 under Pros). Michelle and Barack generally feel good about each other, share warm loving moments and are proud of each other. Most notable is Michelle’s Sun, Mars, and Midheaven conjunct Barack’s Jupiter (See item 6 under Pros).  This is an in love indicator. He brought great benefits to her career and ambitions. He was a great resource to her professionally. He also helped her reap her karmic benefits from hard work and self sacrifice. Likewise, Barack gained a great deal from Michelle’s superior legal knowledge. She enabled him to side step the numerous legal pitfalls and secret enemies that would befall a young ambitious politician. When they work, Michelle and Barack operate like a well oiled machine. But Barack may have insisted that Michelle take on a more subordinate feminine role in the family. This is noted by Barack’s Saturn conjunct Michelle’s Midheaven and Sun (See item 8 under Pros). Saturn says “I restrict.” While at times this new role felt a bit degrading, in the end it may have helped mold the couple’s persona and turn Barack’s ambitions into a worthwhile family investment.

Similarly, Michelle’s Saturn is conjunct Barack’s Ascendant (See item 7 under Pros).  This is an in love indicator. It’s easy to see that because of her feminine role in the family and her position as the breadwinner early on in Barack’s career, he acquiesced into giving Michelle a lot of power in decision making concerning the finances. This is a partial confirmation of Clifford Bryan’s observation that: “…without Michelle Obama; Barack Obama as we know him would cease to exist.”

Let’s take a look at Michelle’s Pluto conjunct Barack’s Vertex (See item 6 under Cons). Historically, a Pluto-Vertex coupling encourages people to take out loans. This is usually pursued in an attempt to transform a situation. If this is the case, Michelle probably was the key co-signer on important loans. With Michelle’s Saturn on Barack’s Ascendant she controlled his purse strings. In turn, it may have served as a stabilizing force for their family.

But I fear things didn’t evolve that easily. Let’s look at some of the Cons.  Remember, love is dependent on the slower moving planets in terms of longevity.

There’s little doubt that Barack’s role as an aspiring politician kept the income of the Obamas in flux thus forcing Michelle to be the primary breadwinner. Likewise, Michelle’s Jupiter quincunx Barack’s Vertex indicate incoming benefits and overall growth, but with a lot of vexing changes and adaptations along the way (See item 3 under Cons). Quincunxes force decisions between two opposing positions. Give and take affected this marriage in more ways then one.

Another startling Con in the Synastry is Michelle’s Midheaven and Sun opposing Barack’s Uranus conjunct North Node (See item 4 under Cons). This is a major showstopper! Barack’s Uranus conjunct North Node is his creative power center and feeds into his change agent role.  It makes him a creative and dynamic force to be reckoned with. He thrives off developing difficult yet liberating change in all his endeavors, and especially marriage.  For example, he may have asked Michelle to tolerate late night calls and visits from male and female campaigners, contributors, senate aides, and sexy young interns.  Let’s not forget those late and all night meetings and business trips. This condition would make any woman uneasy and Michelle is no exception. For this reason, Michelle strikes me as uneasy about some of Barack’s motives in forging creative change. This may have been what Clifford Bryan of the Michelle Obama Examiner picked up when he reported: “…seemingly impromptu displays of solidarity are a little too well rehearsed. They don’t seem quite natural.”

For Michelle with the Sun and Mars on her Midheaven and Saturn on Barack’s Ascendant, issues concerning her husband vying for the presidency equaled risk and sacrifice. She needed certainty. Oprah probably was the driving force in providing Michelle with certainty. If you recall, Oprah became a large campaign contributor who helped Barack acquire campaign contributions, support, and funding. Although this was what Michelle hoped for, it may have led to her having to acquiesce control and make adjustments as indicated in Jupiter quincunx Vertex. But I also believe that when this occurred, it triggered Michelle’s Mars opposition Barack’s Mercury and many arguments (See item 5 under Cons).

As the campaign heated up, death threats rose triggering Michelle’s Saturn opposition Barack’s Mars. This is a major showstopper! (See item 2 under Cons) Michelle’s Saturn says “I restrict” and Barack’s Mars says “I am.” Likewise, Michelle’s Uranus conjunct Barack’s Pluto gives her the power to wage war on any plans she doesn’t understand or deems threatening.  With Uranus in play she can wage war with the percision of a surgeon’s scalpel. This is another major showstopper! (See item 1 under Cons).  Only Barack has the power to control this through his natal Pluto-Vertex. It enables him to help Michelle understand, cope and go with the flow of events.  Without love, this process can be exhausting.

Most astrologers agree that conjunctions involving Uranus and Pluto and oppositions involving Saturn and Mars often create a slow burn in relationships. But, there is also the potential for explosiveness. With this being said, it’s not a stretch to assume that some disputes between Michelle and Barack are major and may have placed their marriage on the rocks more than once. In fact, all indicators show these two may stay angry for days burning with rage. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that early on in the marriage pots, pans and shoes were hurled. Oh, but when Michelle and Barack make up it’s the sweetest. Luckily, they have the good aspects of the inner planets to thank for bringing them back to why they got together in the first place – love.

Sorry, I didn’t find passionate, hot, spicy, sex in the synastry. This is usually indicated by a Venus-Neptune connection. Ideally, a strong Venus-Neptune aspect should be part of the synastry charts. I did find one for Barack, but it was in the synastry between Barack and Oprah.  Surprisingly, even with the flawed birth time the Ooh la la connection holds.
(https://nudeprovacateuse.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/slide21.jpg or https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2008/12/21/oprah-stands-by-her-man/)


The charts below show Barack on the inner wheel and Michelle on the outer wheel.

Let’s hope that for whatever reason these two are together, the good of the nation comes first.  For Michelle that means more kissing and cuddling to counteract Barack’s overachiever adrenaline and Little Sleep. He has three more years to go and a lot on his plate. To dwell any deeper, I’d have to defer to professionals like America’s modern day Eros – Prince:

U don’t have 2 be rich
2 be my girl
U don’t have 2 be cool
2 rule my world
Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your
Kiss

Don’t know Prince? You can hear a clip of the song Kiss at:

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.

  • 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)

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!!

Pooh, Dung: Ellen’s Lament and Murphy Interrupted

21 12 2009

Snow Storm Interrupted…

Writing a blog is not as easy as it seems. First, you have to have something to write about. Second, you have to dig up an audience. In my opinion, the worse part is the latter – digging up an audience. Over the past year I’ve been zinged, singed, cursed, accused, be-littled, mistakened, deleted and copied all in the name of audience share. But this week I hit the big time because on Sunday, December 20, 2009 I was threatened with the FCC. See the blog that started it all at: https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2009/12/10/deep-throat-nude-provocateuse-and-the-big-click/

What did I do, you ask?

All I did was reference Ellen Brandt, PhD and author of Elleninteractive as a source (http://elleninteractive.wordpress.com/). Now don’t get me wrong, I’m a university trained journalist and I’m very sensitive when it comes to sources. But being upright, above board, and open netted me this scathing email I call Ellen’s Lament:

CEASE AND DESIST WITH YOUR “SEO” ACTIVITIES
Sun, December 20, 2009 9:40:58 AM
From:
“lifestories@optonline.net”
To:
“llazaro633@yahoo.com”

This has gone far enough!
You will immediately remove all references to me and my work from your blogsites.
You will immediately remove all references to me and my work from your archives.
And you will personally contact Google and tell them that you have NO connection to me or my work.
You will also remove all links, tags, and pingbacks of whatever sort between your blogs or other sites and mine.
If you do not do this, I will have no alternative but to make formal complaints to Google, Linked In, Word Press, and the FCC, as well as contacting my attorney.
I realize this “SEO” nonsense has gotten completely out of hand in general. But your behavior towards me is now beyond belief.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Ellen Brandt

Hair’s Up!
First, I’ve never met this woman.  She knows nothing about my behavior. Second, how does signing off by saying “Sincerely” fix anything. Frankly, it doesn’t. It just shows that the pooh fart who sent the email has manners – not much sense – but manners.

But I’m a softy, I want people to think well of me. Besides, I’m out here blogging to win friends and influence people. So, I replied to the email and informed Dr. Brandt that I was removing all references to her. I even apologized. Then, I found out that Google, WordPress, and others didn’t really give a pooh about the dung Ellen was swinging, and after recounting my years answering strange mail in Public Affairs at the FCC I realized that the FCC didn’t really give a pooh either.

So what just happened here?  A bully happened!

Wouldn’t I be small if I went ethnic, spastic, ballistic? My readers probably would expect me to take the high road, but sometimes…sometimes you’ve got to go low and dig into the bully’s pooh and fight the bully’s dung with dung.

When Ellen wrote the email above she was lamenting my existence on the internet. She felt confident that her race and class was all that was needed to re-interpret “free speech” in America on my behalf. She wanted to apply her narrow standards so she could cut me out  and herself in! She wanted a place in the bloggers kitchen without heat.  She opted to throw doubt on the fire of creativity to cool her own couch. Behind Ellen’s lament is her wish that America was different. She is one of those people who don’t understand why people like me won’t just clean houses and say “yes ma’am.” Ellen is lamenting why I am so fixated on a technology that is clearly above my station. Ellen is lamenting about a time everyone is glad has come and gone. She doesn’t understand the internet. Ellen needs to browse MySpace.

Whew!

Ellen was very proud about telling everyone she had won the WordPress Blog-Off. Then, she explained in a blog how this was done. I read it with great interest and I was proud of her too. I even sent her two emails letting her know I was going to try her suggestions by using nonsense words that, in Ellen’s own blog said: “people respond viscerally to.” I played fair, I gave her credit in my blog and listed her links urging people to: “find out more!” She probably even pocketed a few bucks from the deal — all at my expense. So what does Ellen do? She responds ferociously and sends me a threatening email! The worse thing about this is – we’re not even in the same business!

Let’s all pray for Ellen. She did write a good blog but something deeper and more hideous is troubling her I fear. I want to believe that my blog showed up at the wrong place, at the wrong time. But on the other hand, her letter was threatening and intimidating – she was being a bully. Her action, as evidenced in the email above, goes against our American standards of free speech and it undermines my personal integrity. In sum, all Ellen’s threat succeeded to do was put me in a pooh dung state of mind.

Pooh on your bullying and throwing dung Ellen – pooh…pooh…I restored the deletions and re-published…pooh on you!

Brittany Murphy: Star Interrupted
A beautiful young talent was lost this past weekend. Brittany Murphy who starred in “8 Mile” with white rapper Eminem passed on Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 32-years-old just days after 26-year-old Chris Henry. Upon my first visual examination of her chart I found that she was indeed impacted by an upper quincunx like Chris Henry. His was brought on by the bi-quintile transit of the Sun heading 144 degrees away from the Desire for Reforms Eclipse Sun. (https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2009/12/18/castrated-corpse-public-option-dead-depp-hatted/ )



Unfortunately, Brittany Murphy has a number of different bios with two different birth places listed. Yahoo Movies has her as being born in Edison, New Jersey (http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/contributor/1800018897/bio ). Astrology data sources and some agencies have her as being born in Atlanta, Georgia (http://famous-relationships.topsynergy.com/Brittany_Murphy/AstroData.asp ).


If she was born in New Jersey she may have suffered from a natal conjunction involving a disassociated Saturn-Vertex in the 7th house to her Aquarian Ascendant. The problem with a disassociated conjunction is confusion over how to blend the different elements of each sign. In Brittany’s case one was fire – the other earth. All Brittany’s New Jersey quincunx needed was a little confusion and a trigger. The trigger could have been transiting Saturn in Libra conjoining her Arabic Part of Disease or Arabic Part of Lawsuits in the 8th house. Please note transiting Saturn in Libra is just 3.5 degrees shy of an exact trine with Brittany’s Ascendant thus triggering her upper quincunx. What was going on with Brittany at the time of her death? What we do know for sure is that her role as Janis Joplin had been delayed due to legal wrangling which left poor Brittany much like a star interrupted.  We also know she had a father, Angelo Bertolotti an Italian American racketeering criminal, with whom she had little contact since her parents’ divorce. And because, her natal Saturn-Vertex fell in the 7th house there may have been some marital dissapointments.


But what if she was really born in Atlanta, Georgia. Could the same triggers be present? Not exactly. Because of the change in location, the Ascendant moved ruling out a natal Saturn-Vertex with a transiting Saturn in Libra trigger. I did find, however, a transiting Mars-Vertex pairing in the 7th house that was quincunx the Ascendant. In this case, the Vertex quincunx Ascendant triggered health matters, strain and work problems. The Mars-Vertex pairing in the 7th house may have also indicated marriage squabbles. Below are the two birthcharts side by side so you can see that in New Jersey (upper right) Brittany is an Aquarian with an upper quincunx between Saturn-Vertex and the Ascendant. In this position, transiting Saturn in Libra could have been the trigger. In Atanta (lower left) Brittany is a Capricorn without the upper quincunx. In this position, transiting Mars-Vertex in Leo could have been the culprit.


See you in a few days with a review of the Quincunx!
