The random state generator site, does random cities, countries and national parks, but I just use it for states. For this Blue Moon, it pulled Columbus, Ohio but typed into Janus Washington DC and so it stands.
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 a 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 Jacob and 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, the representative of the Democratic nominee because it is the older party in American politics by 40 years, trails Jupiter, the Republican elephant with the asteroid Pallas.
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 – his communication skills are square everything in Capricorn or the Old Guard of the Deep State. The newspapers and media are Venus and will they are also in the third house. They have no love for Donny.
Asteroid Joe is in the fifth –the house of diplomats, gambling houses, games, and one-armed bandits (Dominion voting machines?) — is with the Sun and sextile, friendship, to the sixth house and trine Ceres.
Mars is at home in the tenth, organizing everything, and square the ascendant of Cancer, the sign for the birth of the USA. Thus is the Cancer ascendant is proxy for the US, Mars being square it, isn’t a good sign but the ascendant is trine Asteroid Joseph. For that matter, it is sextile Asteroid Donald, but between them is Mercury the sign of business and information and trade. Who has more money? Not personally, but who has a bigger war chest? Neptune in the ninth house of long journeys and foreign diplomat is opposite Donald, trine Joseph — thus overseas Joseph is the favorite, but are they voting? Perhaps, as Chiron also in the ninth is opposite the big media of Venus in Libra and perhaps Chiron is the key.
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.

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 Orwellian 2 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 class 3 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
