here is a random state generator site. It does random cities, countries and national parks too. Well, for this Blue Moon, it pulled Columbus, Ohio. Alas, this original forecast it, Columbus, was not given, but DC was. That should have been a warning, but it still took me a week to get it, so I wrote everything up for Columbus while the chart said DC. I guess that is what happens when Mercury is retrograde — S.N.A.F.U. 1 https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/68954/researching-the-real-origin-of-snafu
The grand trine in earth dominates the Full Moon and opposition from the eleventh house to the fifth makes it Splash, a common type for mundane charts. The earth bias of the chart dominates the first and second houses too, with a preponderance in Capricorn going from the sixth into the seventh houses and that is the only angular setup dominates the chart.
This puts emphasis on the overall health of the nation, and its economics.
Applying that yardstick to ourselves, for winter is here in the Northern Hemisphere, and that means return of the flu season. We are all looking like squirrels stocking up for possibly dark winter ahead.
Economically, the second house — Christmas is just 7 weeks away — and depending who wins, we may all be following trend-setting California, and canceling it. This has resulted in month long Black Friday to allay the fears of the illness. The holidays have become so much fun.
Blue Earth Moon
Our rising happens at 23 Cancer suggesting the Sabian symbols a “serious little study group, akin to a literary club, meeting for intellectual fellowship in a member’s home.” Opposite it that Capricornian. But it is the part of fortune at 17 Capricorn 22 that is the most troubling, and a poor portent for both the month end and the upcoming election, “Two Men locked in Strife.”
La Volasfera, the Italian mystic that Sepharial uncovered over 200 years ago, suggests degree leads to many dangers, for the two men are akin to the sides of a coin like Jacoband Esau, and always warring. There is no trust between them. Sounds familiar.
How that turns out, I cannot say, but with the preponderance of Capricorn, the easy road of voting will turn into a headache of work to unravel.
Politically, Saturn, representative of the Democratic nominee because it is the older party in American politics by 40 years, trails Jupiter, the Republican with the asteroid Pallas, for close to the Arabian part.
The chart above, with the asteroids for Don and Joe, almost exactly sextile apart from the Asteroid Josefa with the planet Mercury, business, communications and trickery, smack in between. Josefa in the fifth, far from the Sun, that traditionally in mundane charts represents the president of the country, but here the current president, Trump, is in the third with Venus showing his popularity in the house of communications – the nation’s media outlets like newspapers and tv networks and so of course rumor (Venus). Here she is in her diplomatic guise and suggests contractual agreements. She has only one aspect and that to disruptive Uranus in the eleventh, I am not sure what that means, but something is amiss.
Asteroid Joe is in the fifth –the house of diplomats, gambling houses, games, and one-armed bandits — is with the Sun.
Jacob and Esau
How can that be? A real puzzle isn’t it, and so I remind our reader of Jacob and Esau. The Great Spirit told Rebecca that the younger would serve the older, but as the story unfolds, Jacob cannot just sit there and want for providence to fall into his laps, because if he does he would lose it. No, Jacob must work for it.
He does that by dressing like his brother and getting the father’s blessing, thus fulfilling the Promise made before he and his brother were born.In short, voting is not enough, we will have to work to make it real, for nothing is what it seems — mischief is afoot.2 If you want to make the gods laugh, tell them you have a plan — Ancient Greek saying
The Leaping Hour
The Blue Halloween night is leap day too, when we fall back to where we were in April, again.
John Batchelor, of his eponymously named radio show, had an interesting episode tonight on the assumption that Biden, the front runner, wins. Batchelor’s excellent analogy,, is whether America is going like Rome — falling into a civil war, for which our current chart as Mars in exalted in Aries and in its fall in the fourth house sorta hints at.
Another Civil War?
The reason he believes this is the current ideological war between the Deep State vs Patriotism. He defines the former as multinationals, universities and the education unions, the libertine free-lovers, along with the government bureaucracy, who holds it all together like gorilla glue. They would be in Roman times, the Senatorial class, or today’s Universalist class who believe America is just another place for the party to be held.
On the other side is the historical Roman plebeian class. These are those who do not identify with the above. The plebes find themselves increasingly at odds with the dominant Orwellian3 Democratic pollster Frank Luntz, himself in the news this week for decrying the state of polling, has said that Orwellian is a good thing and should be understood as speaking with “clarity” and “imagery”. I believe he is missing that it also implies LIES.
elitist forces ruling America today.
Currently, this foment is smoldering (Sun in the eleventh in Scorpio) in just Democratic city-states, but ultimately the Revolution will not stop there. Fueled by foreign money and their addiction to it, ,the left cannot let this go. Knowingly or not, they are a blow against the Wilsonian, and American twentieth century ethic, that the plebeian class4 whom the cultural elites and their media call happily “Deplorable” and “fodder”
take great patriotic pride in. That episode is here.
Seems everyone is doing the Time Warp, again
