CNN Audience Plunges 25%

Believe the Chart… Charts are true. Utterly. With a precision that can stun. The task, then, is to learn and understand the factors and techniques that reveal the truth and to honor, serve and embrace the knowledge of self and the profound gift of life events.
-Martha Wescott

In a new TV ratings report published Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research, Fox News Channel continues to reign supreme in the cable news wars, while CNN’s primetime audience has collapsed by a shocking 25%. May 31
Time has a quality that is best understood through the myths and archetypes associated with the relevant planets and star positions at any given moment.  Therefore, to gain some insight into an individual’s (or any entity’s) destiny we need to go back to the moment in time that defines its origin.  The astrologer has a special advantage, and can revisit the progressions and so forth that accompanied …

Why the US-India relationship is in trouble?

With the US ramping up sanctions against countries deemed as "enemy nations", India is in a bit of a spot. Russia and Iran are both under sanctions. As the world’s largest economy, the US finds sanctions an effective diplomatic weapon to put pressure on its enemies. Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) is now a major tool to scarce away all those who wish to defy the US. Countries doing business with America’s enemies will also come on the radar and bear the brunt of US sanctions.
India, which does business both with Russia and Iran, is likely to be hit hard. Despite growing warmth in ties with the US the spin-off may adversely affect India’s relations with the US. From being on opposite sides of the Cold War divide, India-US ties underwent a dramatic change since the signing of the civil nuclear deal in 2005.
Successive Indian governments have followed a policy of not honouring sanctions slapped unilaterally by any country. Only sanctions which are …

Italy - The Beginning of the End of the European Union

Italy's political turmoil tends to prove the wry old saying that "if voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal". The country is facing a mounting constitutional crisis amid calls for the president to be impeached after he blocked the formation of a new government. The crisis seems to be mainly about a clash over financial policy and a populist challenge to European Union economic austerity, according to to the Financial Times.  But lurking too is a concern among the EU establishment in Brussels that a new populist Italian government is proposing to radically restore friendly relations with Russia. That concern is no doubt shared by Washington and NATO.

The news out of Italy over the last two days has the potential to completely change the game as it could end in the destruction of the EU. The original Euro Community was an admirable ideal as it emphasised the rights of all citizens of member states, guaranteei…

Macron’s Outreach to Putin Tests U.S. Relations

French President Emmanuel Macron drew a spotlight to growing discord between U.S. and European foreign policy as he joined President Vladimir Putin in defense of the Iran nuclear deal at the recently concluded Russian Economic Forum.

In this post we examine Macron’s horoscope to explain the tectonic shift that is taking place in the French-US relationship. For our purpose we will look the T-square between Moon-Uranus and apex Mars in Macron’s chart. This should have been an explosive combination in which an individual would display aggressive behavior especially when his personal space is invaded. But Mars is retrograde so that the energy and heroism of Mars is suppressed. As Mars rules the raw and masculine energy, Mars retrograde in natal may indicate problems with self-confidence. Especially in the natal chart of a male person, this natal condition may feel detrimental concerning his sexual drive, while also the will to fight, compete and succeed. A Mars retrograde male will be ra…

Paralyzed Woman Goes Skydiving

To the magus, there exists no accidental happening…everything is established solidly by that law which the wise man discerns in happenings that appear accidental to the profane. The curve observed in the flight of birds, the barking of a dog, the shape of a cloud, are occult manifestations of that omnipresent, coordinator, the source of unity and harmony - KarlSeligmann

If you can't walk it doesn't mean you can't fly! This 71 year old woman from Ukraine has managed to fulfill her age-old dream to skydive, even though she is partially paralyzed and has to use a wheelchair. The woman hit the silk near the Ukrainian city of Dnepr. She only needed help while boarding, but after that she was joking all the way along, eager to jump. The woman performed skydiving from a height of 4,200 meters (circa 13,800 feet). May 28

Liberation day! EU’s General Data Protection Regulation comes into force

As from today you have the perfect excuse. “I haven’t been in touch because you didn’t respond to my last email – you know, the one where I said that you had to specifically opt in if you wanted further communications? Anyway, Mum, how was your week?” Like most, I feel that the advent of GDPR – the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation – is a boon. Normally I ignore incoming emails but this just prompts people to send even more in the hope I’ll respond. But this week, ignoring emails has been a way to make them go away in the future. I’ve had pleading emails asking me to stay in touch with companies that have never emailed me before. (I checked.) Though I still seem to be getting emails from someone called “Jessica” asking “Are those your pictures? LOL we have to talk”. She doesn’t seem to have a privacy policy. May 25

How Woodrow Wilson created the US debt

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world - no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.- Woodrow Wilson

In his blogpost [1], the author explains Woodrow Wilson’s Folly. During his tenure the national debt increased 27X. That’s right. As of 1914 the public debt was just $1 billion or $11 per capita and amounted to less than 2% of GDP – a level which had been maintained since the Battle of Gettysburg. But by the end of 1919, the public debt had mushroomed to $27 billion, including upwards of $10 billion re-loan…

Rosenstein Will Let Congress See ‘Highly Classified’ Information

Many liberals and critics are under the mistaken belief that President Trump is violating the rule of law and civil liberties by criticizing the Robert Mueller investigation and by ordering the Justice Department’s Inspector General to investigate whether or not the FBI spied on his 2016 presidential campaign. In fact, the president is behaving totally lawfully, and it is Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who are acting unconstitutionally and who are violating Trump’s civil liberties.

The Justice Department agreed to show congressional Republicans “highly classified” information they have demanded from the Russia probe, the White House said after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray met Monday with President Donald Trump. The department also agreed to ask its official watchdog to look into “any irregularities” in its investigation of Trump’s campaign, W…

US-EU relationship decline through the lens of the US Sibly

President Donald Trump’s hard exit from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal was followed by a hard message for Europe: The United States will use sanctions to coerce its allies to shut their economic doors to Iran. Trump not only chose to violate a multilateral agreement, but his administration now aims to implode it by obstructing European business ties with Iran. In addition, the United States has also vowed to impose harmful trade tariffs on European allies. Trump is in effect threatening a trade war with Europe through tariffs and the weaponization of U.S. sanctions.

In this post we shall see that the US-EU spat can be clearly seen in the US Sibly. Shown above is the T-square in the Sibly that is relevant to our discussion. With Uranus currently transiting [27ar – 1ta], it completes a Grand Cross. (Note that the TNP Hades in the 11th is referring to US allies e.g. Europe).

Aslesha Eclipse & Food Poisoning in Iran

More than 700 people have been poisoned after eating wild mushrooms in Iran, the country’s emergency services said. At least 9 people have so far died while dozens remain in critical condition, local media report. “The latest emergency statistics show that 721 people have been poisoned by poisonous mushrooms, of which 190 were hospitalized, 523 were cleared, and nine died,” Mojtaba Khalidi, an emergency services spokesman, told Iranian ISNA news agency.May 20, 2018;

The Full Moon of January 31 was also a Total Lunar Eclipse that conjoined the asteroid Ceres. At Tehran, the eclipse was very significantly placed on the horizon axis. Among the stars that formed the backdrop to the eclipse was epsilon Hydrae – the Water Snake with a poisonous breath so that Diana Rosenberg links this area to poisons and to illnesses due to infections. This was also part of the Indian lunar mansion Aslesha which was also associated with poisons…

EU Hardens Against Trump on Trade and Iran

European Union leaders presented a determined front to stand up to U.S. President Donald Trump’s threats to penalize EU businesses and scupper the Iran nuclear deal. As the bloc paved the way for retaliation, its 28 leaders meeting in the Bulgarian capital Sofia made a rare demonstration of unity in the face of what EU President Donald Tusk called the “capricious assertiveness” of the Trump administration.

The upcoming solar eclipse of July 13 is already beginning to affect world events especially at those places where it placed on the angles. At the Bulgarian capital Sofia, the eclipse is placed very significantly on the Ascendant. It is extremely powerful since it is conjunct the TNP Kronos opposite Pluto and square the TNP Zeus. The eclipse is conjunct the star Castor of sidereal Gemini.About sidereal Gemini and the Twins, Nick Fiorenza writes:

Why Trump Is Ending the American Era

Siwa’s  Tandava– Dance of Destruction

There are good reasons for any good progressive to bemoan the presence of the childish, racist, sexist and ecocidal, right-wing plutocrat Donald Trump in the White House. One complaint about Trump that should be held at arm’s-length by anyone on the left, however, is the charge that Trump is contributing to the decline of U.S. global power - to the erosion of the United States’ superpower status and the emergence of a more multipolar world. This criticism of Trump comes from different elite corners. Last October, the leading neoconservative foreign policy intellectual and former George W. Bush administration adviser Eliot Cohen wrote an Atlantic magazine essay titled “How Trump Is Ending the American Era.” Cohen recounted numerous ways in which Trump had reduced “America’s standing and ability to influence global affairs.” He worried that Trump’s presidency would leave “America’s position in the world stunted” and an “America lacking confidence” on…

The US And Europe To Go Separate Ways

The US withdrawal from the Iran deal (JCPOA) has not buried it. That agreement is still very much alive. Even the US’s closest allies have refused to follow suit. The Iranian foreign minister is going on a trip just to save it. Tehran has the backing of all the signatories to the JCPOA, except America. That list includes Russia, China, and the EU, which keeps on trying to find an arrangement.
What the US did manage was to deal a heavy blow to trans-Atlantic solidarity.Washington set a six-month deadline for European companies doing business in Iran to get out. They’ll have to either terminate their operations or face heavy penalties. This means that the US has now become the main threat to Europe’s economy.

Astrology of the Mumbai supercop’s suicide

What makes astrology supremely relevant is that it discloses an unsuspected dimension of the world we think we know so well. It is as though we have become accustomed to see only the horizontal yarn of the weaving, the weft, and are largely unaware of the warp. We are accustomed to break down our world, in order to understand it, into certain categories, recognizing what belongs to this category, what belongs to that. That is ‘scientific’. However, astrology is about learning to think in new categories. It embodies a system of new categories that are as different from the ones to which we are habituated, as the warp is from the weft. In this system objects and events that at first sight appear to have nothing whatever to do with each other are shown to be intimately connected. Conversely, things we naturally tend to associate may be distributed otherwise in the astrological scheme. Understanding the world around us depends on our power to perceive patterns of meaning, to make the righ…
