A Woman and Two Men – Sabian Symbol – The Maddow Interview with Lev Parnas

The Sabian Symbol, A woman and two men on a bit of land facing south was the symbol stimulated in Donald Trump’s horoscope, by transit Saturn in opposition to his natal Saturn. On the days when the aspect was exact, one manifestation of it was the January 15, 2020 interview of liberal media host Rachel Maddow with Lev Parnas. He, along with Igor Fruman, was charged in a four-count indictment alleging that each defendant conspired to violate the ban on foreign donations and contributions in connection with federal and state elections. They were both involved with Rudy Giuliani in the scandal involving Trump’s scheme to pressure the newly elected Ukraine President, Zelensky, to announce an investigation of both Joe and Hunter Biden, as well as other probes to make it appear that Uranine, rather than Russia, interfered with the 2016 US presidential elections. Bottom-line, Parnas numerously stated that Trump and others were in the loop; that he knew full well and directed the behind-the-scenes “errand” led by Rudy Giuliani.

It is not fully known why Lev Parnas agreed to an interview with Maddow, however, his conversation with her corroborated all other evidence which was uncovered in the House of Representatives that led to the impeachment of President Donald Trump. The two men in the photograph are Lev Parnas on the far left, and his attorney, Joseph Bondy at the center, and Maddow on the right.

CANCER 24 A woman and two men on a bit of sunlit land facing south This is a symbol of the soul’s necessary decisiveness in the basic allegiances of life, here emphasized in the terms of practical or everyday relations. There must be a mediation between the competing demands for immediate attention to various transient needs, and for some consistent or over-all goal which will bring an individual’s efforts into a cohesive pattern. The inner capacities must be disciplined continually for the sake of a plethora of outer opportunities. The keyword is INCEPTION. When positive, the degree is an unusual gift for organizing and exploiting the self’s potentials, and when negative, a devastating sense of ineptitude and estrangement from reality.

The transit Saturn opposite its natal position in Trump’s chart corresponded with his impeachment by the US House of Representatives. The interview with Maddow most likely was spurred on by Parnas in response to Trump’s denial that he knew him. Other national and worldwide events also correspond with the transit Saturn opposition. Deaths including suicides at the border with Mexico, deaths and displacements of the Sirian Kurds at the border with Turkey, and Ukrainian soldiers dying in their fight against Russia’s invasion of their country are among them. The focus of impeachment doesn’t include these events but are the tragic collateral from Trump’s mishandling of foreign affairs.

Bob Dylan & Joan Baez – Political Protest Singers from the 60s

It is known that Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were very attracted to each other for various reasons, including their political views and activism as well as having a personal relationship that fell just short of a legal tie in marriage.

There are a few Astrofacts that show the astrological reasons for their attraction, and here listed are what could be considered the major aspects that are the cosmic influence on them, as aspects manifest in the lives of so many other celebrity couples, such as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Kathreen Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, to name just a few.

The most powerful magnetic factor in the chart is identified by their exact Sun/Moon conjunction. Here is where the tie has its most emotional response and the one that draws the couple to feel and believe they have a destiny together, or that they are continuing a purpose that was founded in perhaps a previous life cycle.

They loved each other’s ideas, shown in the close dynamic between Dylan’s Mercury (mentality) and Baez’s appreciative Venus near his ascendant. Baez’s Mars is opposite Dylan’s Sun and this profoundly stimulates the Sun/Moon conjunction all the more, and definitely adds kick to their chemistry, with an extra dose of physical passion.

Astrobite – United States Pluto Return

The United States Pluto Return includes a broad spectrum of topics that are included in the meaning of the planet Pluto, but it also incorporates the meanings of the planet as it is influenced by its configurations in the natal chart’s potentials. Pluto in the US chart is involved in a dynamic Mercury-Pluto opposition. Mercury represents mentality and specifically the personal perspective and thoughts concerning individual rights. The concern over Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential elections has brought the issue of each American’s right to vote in the Democratic process.

There are also concerns over women’s health, a woman’s right to choose, and the tense situation building over attempts to overturn Roe versus Wade. Pluto in Capricorn describes the age of old tradition of white, conservative men making decisions for young women, represented by Mercury in the feminine sign of Cancer. The opposition aspect clearly defines the escalating polarity between the powerful ingrained forces against the vulnerable average citizen.

Propaganda is very much a part of the “Pluto effect.” Both subtle and obvious forces influence the object or target to be manipulated. The US chart’s Pluto, opposite natal Mercury, can facilitate the process of exploitation of the average person’s mind and perspective. Propaganda is not necessarily a negative tool, used for one’s own advantage. It can be utilized to bring about positive results as well as being an invasive maneuver to achieve mastery or control over others.

Today’s climate of contention leading up to the Pluto Return reveals diametrically opposed political parties using both truth and lies to gain the attention of their target voter. Facts play a large part in any controversy, however, in today’s concerns many are prone to ignore information that does not bring them the end results they envision. An example, that leads up to the 2020 elections, is revealed when Trump’s followers say that they are unhappy with the details of some of his proposals, but will vote for him in 2020 because on the whole, he is implementing the concepts they embrace. For some, there is a heated contest between good and evil, right and wrong. The founders of the republic had certain goals in mind that are being challenged now, and there is no guarantee that the ultimate truth will prevail. It may just happen that the majority’s vision is realized until there is a balancing of powers that will shift toward the opposite point of view to gain its control and express its dominating objectives.

Solar System; The Seat of Consciousness

Modern day physicists are exploring the great and the small realms in the universal manifold that the ancients referred to by the axiom “As above, so below.” Yet most are ignoring the mechanical attributes of the Solar System in regards to planetary cycles and their effects on human life on Earth. Astrology is an ancient discipline mostly ignored by science. Fortunately, the everyday citizen has a grasp of astrology’s relevance, not only for a better perspective on future events but for an understanding of their life-potentials as shown in their birth charts. An increasing number of individuals are leaving behind the over-simplified newspaper astrological fortune-telling, and have gone beyond where scientists have left off.

There are modern scientific theories that have given credence to an all-pervading intelligence in the universe. Some find it in what they call the morphogenetic field, others find a source of life and intelligence in oscillating water molecules and their geometric patterning, as well as other theories that pervade the scientific world. But unfortunately, most theories do not take into account the rhythm of vibratory rates created by the rotation of the planets on their axes, in combination with their orbital cycles of the Sun that define numerical tones. The source of the universe, consciousness, and life, will always remain a mystery to humankind, but to quote the notable physicist Richard Feynman, “It does no harm to the mystery to know a little bit about it.”

The Sun lightens and enlightens by the power of electrical fire, and by its magnetic properties, pulls the planets along with it, through the galaxy in a spiraling path, heading in an unknown direction, ever-spiraling forward, gathering more stories to record and play, in the theater of life. The mastermind of creation keeps its methods and purpose hidden from the eyes of the profane, and even for the initiate, whose heart is open, the answers are ever-elusive from their grasp.

But the planets give away some clues to the conundrum, by the cyclic nature of their geometric patterns as they weave in and out of synergistic fields in perpetual motion. Our emotions are the receptacle of this energy-intelligence and are essential for conducting the messages from these forces down into the fiber of our physical being.  The hierarchy of the planets is associated with attributes of character.

The signs of the year (zodiac) are the backdrop of meaning to our lives, as we reflect their archetypal natures in our own being. They are a stimulus yet not the cause, of how we interpret universal law through the sieve of personal conscience. Each of us is born into a culture that molds and programs our perception of life and holds us back unless we hunger for wholeness and enlightenment. The outer planets in aspect with natal configurations mark breakthroughs of divine intervention to guide us toward a life worth living.

From the Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones:

LEO 7 The constellations in the sky This is a symbol of the infinite regression in all universal reality, not as a fact of some unreachable end in knowledge but rather as a demonstration that any abandonment of the known for the sake of the unknown is fruitless. The cosmos is illimitable in the sense that man’s questing may ramify in time and space to the extent of any given pertinence, but his assurance lies within his own being and experience. The stars are his confirmation, never his explanation. The keyword is SURETY. When positive, the degree is consistent effectiveness in understanding and self-ordering, and when negative, a loss of all present integrity through an unnecessary retreat to the remote or mysterious.
