Solomon Northrop, 12 Years a Slave

Just saw "12 Years A Slave," a movie about Solomon Northrop a free black man born in New York who was kidnapped and sold into slavery.  As the title of the movie suggests Northrop was held for 12 years by various slave owners and then was freed with the help of his friends and the Governor of New York.

Since 12 years is a Jupiter return I was curious to see what sign Jupiter was in for the time of the kidnapping and the release.  Wikipedia offers some dates but I don't have exact dates.  Turns out that Jupiter was in its own sign of Sagittarius for both events.  Kind of difficult to explain for the kidnapping but definitely works for being one of the few kidnapped slaves who found freedom.  Sagittarius is the sign of freedom.  Also rules the law and legal affairs.  Northrop was born with Neptune, the planet that rules slavery at 3 Sagittarius so this planet may have been triggered.  Northrop was lured to Washington, D.C. With the promise of a well paying job and then was drugged and chained.  Neptune rules deception and druggings and Jupiter rules boundless optimism.

He also had a conjunction of Saturn to the North Node in Scorpio.  This corresponds to the same aspect which occurred this year just as a movie about his struggles and survival skills comes before the public.  The movie won a golden globe award this year.

According to Wikipedia, Northrop was born July, 1808 in Minerva, New York.  He was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841 when he was 32 years old (this means he would have been kidnapped before July).  Northrop was freed in January, 1853 when he was 44 years old.  Circumstances surrounding his death are unknown.

Burglary at FBI offices leads to exposure of Cointelpro program.

Cointelpro was a secret program run by the government.  Most of the documents were destroyed in 1973 in order to avoid scandal and accountability.  It maybe never would have been known about at all if documents weren't stolen from FBI offices back in 1971.  A recent NEw York Times article says that 5 of the thieves have come forward since the statute of limitations for their crime is expired.


"Burglars who took on FBI abandon shadows " by Mark Mazzatti. Jan 7, 2014. NYTimes

The astrology for the theft is pretty interesting.  There was a conjunction of Jupiter to Neptune in Sagittarius on that particular night.  That shows a great energy put forth to seek freedom and truth.  It's interesting that current whistleblower Edward Snowden was born in 1983 when Neptune was still in Sagittarius and Jupiter had just cycled back to that sign.  In his chart, however, Jupiter is in conjunction with Uranus in Sagittarius.  His whistleblowing encouraged the thieves of the FBI files to come forward.

I don't have a time for the theft.  Scorpio was rising at 11:00 pm, so I suppose that's a great place to start.  Mars 29 Sagittarius was squaring Pluto 29 Virgo to the degree.  Excellent aspect for committing a crime.

Sabotage, South San Jose

Really great charts for studying sabotage.  There have been 2 incidences of sabotage of what seems to be focused on AT&T in South San Jose.  The events occurred 4 years apart yet the charts have amazing similarities.  The first event occurred in 2009 and involved cutting fiber optic cables which cut off service.  The second event occurred in 2013 and involved shooting out the transformer in a power station.  Both events occurred during an Aries sun while Pluto, the planet of sabotage and most crime, was in the first house.

Sun at bottom of charts suggest power and territory.

Venus is in conjunction with mars in both charts.  In both charts mars rules Ic and Venus rules the mc again suggesting territory and governance.  The pair are in conjunction with Uranus in the fiber optic chart and are in conjunction with the Sun in the shooting chart.

Saturn is lead planet of bucket shapes in both charts.

Sun and moon are both in cardinal signs and on angles in both charts.

Ceres is in a grand trine in both charts.

Surfing the 61 foot wave

Last December a surfer rode the largest wave in recorded history.  Yesterday's Sunday Chronicle contained a great article about the 61 foot monster and it's rider, Shawn Dollar. 


Dollar and his team rode out to a spot off the shore of San Diego.  This alone takes 8-9 hours to accomplish.

I wondered if Jupiter would place prominently in the chart as he, along with Neptune, rules all things enormous.  And yay,  Jupiter has just passed over the Gemini ascendant into Neptunes 12th house of large bodies of water. 

 Jupiter is apex of an exact Yod figure to a Saturn sextile Pluto.  Jupiter 9 Gemini inconjunct Saturn 9 Scorpio sextile Pluto 9 Capricorn.  Jupiter with Pluto seems often to signal record breaking moments.  That combines the idea of luck with forces of nature.  This yod conforms into a kite shape as Jupiter is opposing Venus 8 Sagittarius (h6).

Just as important is sun on an Aries Point (Noel tyl says this brings one before the public) and sextile Neptune also on an angle and strong in its own house (oceans) at 1 Pisces.  Pisces and Neptune also rule the feet.  Hang ten.

Just found Shawn Dollars birth date.  Looks like the moon was conjunct his Sun.

Actresses Murdered By Government Spooks?

Here's more conspiracy theory stuff.  Well, some of it isn't theory, it's real.  Two actresses who died young and who may have been in part murdered by government creepiness.  Both actresses were Scorpios with Sun in major aspect to Uranus.  They got burned for having penetrating insights (Scorpio) and for rebelling against the norm (Uranus). The FBI did acknowledge that it publicized lies about Seberg in the press.

Operation Mockingbird

Just saw the latest Hunger Games movie, Flaming Fire or something.  Sorry can't remember the name.  The movie is about how government controls people and seems to make huge references to Operation Mockingbird which was a secret CIA program started in 1951 in which the CIA influenced the media to control people. 

Looked up the guys who were involved.  There are some conflicting facts on the Wikipedia articles so I'm not sure who really started the program and when. 

Anyway, did notice there seems to be a big connection between CIA officers who want to control the public through media.  All 3 men listed had Mercury Retrogrades.  Interesting to think that all those little blips that occur during Mercury Rx might be great times to inject sweet little nothings into one's subconscious.  Pluto and Neptune could also be contenders as well.  Probably even Jupiter.

Gang of Eight

Quickie look at the Sun Signs of the members of the Gang of Eight who are under pressure to fix illegal immigration.  We've got 2 Scorpio suns who have a Mercury Rx affecting their vitality and ability to lead.  These are republicans john Boehner and Saxby Chambliss.  Another fixed sign is C.A. Dutch ruppersberger.  From California we've got Senator Dianne Feinstein who is a Cancer and Nancy Pelosi who is an Aries.  They are the groups cardinal signs.  Harry Reid is a Sagittarius and Mitch McConnell is a Pisces and mike Rogers is a Gemini.  These are the mutable signs.

The signs not represented are interesting.  Leadership signs Leo and Capricorn aren't interested in bullying anyone.  Weird.  The innocent bystander signs, Virgo and libra are also not represented.  Also there are no Tauruses.  My gang stalking is getting really intense.  Had a lawyer admit to the stalking.  Politics really sucks.  Oh, and the guys who I think are running my gang stalking are a Taurus and a Leo.

Government Shutdown

Article about history of government shutdowns since 1976.  


It looks a little bit like a nodal cycle thing. 

The north node is in Scorpio today in conjunction with Saturn.  The north node had just passed out of Scorpio in 1995-6 when the last major shut down occurred.  It was in Scorpio as well in 1976.  

Scorpio rules all dealings with other people and money and also power plays.  

Well, the sun and the sign of Leo also have something to do with power plays.  The moon tends to be in Leo when the markets shut down.  Leo also rules playing games and risky behavior.
