The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election: A Contemporary Morality Play – Part 2

In my studies of American presidential elections held within a few months of the JU-SA conjunctions, notably when both the election and inauguration occurs close to the conjunction date, I have observed that that president is elevated and becomes more important in U.S. history, whether deserved or not.  They play a major role historically.  Here is from my book, In Search of Destiny, 2012, p. 40: Continue reading

The 2020 U.S. Presidential Election: A Contemporary Morality Play – Part 1

Election year 2020, more so than any election year in at least 60 years, is marked by overriding themes so huge that they almost dwarf the presidential candidates themselves, who become more like allegorical figures out of a Medieval Morality Play.  But this is a Contemporary Morality play with very high stakes politically, economically and socially.  For this reason I have concentrated on those larger themes to date in making my election predictions.   In Oct. 2019 at a public lecture in Dallas I first predicted that Donald Trump would be re-elected President of the United States.  Though no opposing candidate had yet been chosen, I made my case, and I still stand by it.

Astrology and the Individual: An Astrologer Looks at the Rise of Marxism & Postmodernism

In natal astrology and the study of the birth chart of an individual, astrologers develop a deep understanding that we are looking at the specific destiny of an individual, and that that individual will have a destiny that is not going to be equal to all others in respect to abilities, health, wealth, status, education, marriage, or relationships.  Nor do we invent that a planet or zodiacal sign suddenly has new meaning and/or gender assignment because we reject previous traditional knowledge on the subject, as in Postmodernism, which rejects previous universalist ideas of objective reality, morality, truth, human nature, reason, science, language, and social progress.  Postmodernism rejects Marxism and Christianity, among others in a long list of what it considers failed meta-narratives. But what may unite Marxism and Postmodernism is an ever expanding list of grievances, even if not the same exact list. Continue reading

Coronavirus – The Bigger Picture & Time-Lines

The year 2020 was always the target year, both politically and astrologically.  The  Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Dec. 2020 highlights an astrological target year, and with it many non-astrological factors that can also be described by the planets.  When the JU-SA conjunctions started to dominate in sidereal EARTH signs, from Sept. 9, 1921, the shift began from the previous FIRE period that had featured the power of both religion and the nation-state. In the EARTH period (1921-2199), businesses, corporate conglomerates, industrialists and bankers would gain increasing power over nations and their policies. Continue reading

Coronavirus – War Against “the Invisible Enemy”

By Edith Hathaway © 2020

The last time we fought “the Invisible Enemy” – in real and also astrological terms –  was in Sept. 2001, with the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and elsewhere.  This time a public health crisis is affecting almost all nations in the world, most of which are currently on lockdown.  Again as in 2001, international trade  and travel are radically disrupted, this time to an unprecedented degree, at least from mid-March 2020 onward. Most schools, universities, and businesses were ordered to close through April 30th at a minimum. Other businesses require staff to work from home.  Continue reading

Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Brexit – Finally!

“My chances of being PM are about as good as the chances of finding Elvis on Mars, or my being reincarnated as an olive.”   Boris Johnson (age 40), The Independent, 2004.

And yet on July 24, 2019 Boris Johnson did become U.K. Prime Minister (at age 55), with his mandate assured in a nationwide election five months later.  Vedic astrology could have told us that Johnson would be greatly elevated in the public sphere within a few months before or after Sept. 9, 2016. This date marked the start of his 16-year Mercury Dasha (a planetary period) and a phenomenally successful period in his life.  Continue reading

Jupiter-Saturn 2020: The Tipping Point

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

Many arenas of life are sweeping to a tipping point in Dec. 2020.  As we approach this tipping point, the excesses or weaknesses of any ideology become more obvious, as if they are ready to either explode or break.  Though many arenas are in play, among the most prominent is the battle between Nationalism and Globalism, with Nationalism and issues of national sovereignty generally supported by the Right, and Globalism and One World Government generally supported by the Left. Continue reading

December 2019: Solar Eclipse & a Planetary Conclave in Sagittarius

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

December 2019 brings some extra acceleration and intensity due to eclipses on Dec. 26, 2019 and Jan. 10, 2020. They occur at 9:59 Sagittarius and 25:52 Gemini, respectively.  (All planetary positions are sidereal zodiac/Lahiri ayanamsha.)  In addition, we have a Sagittarian focus for nearly eight weeks. This includes the entire month of Dec. 2019 and from Nov. 21, 2019 to Jan. 12, 2020.  Continue reading

Immigration – the Defining Issue of the 2020 U.S. Election. Part 2

PART 2: WHO WINS THE IMMIGRATION BATTLE?

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

WHY GLOBALISM MAY FAIL IN THE EARTH PERIOD FROM 2020

The next U.S. Presidential Election will hinge on who wins the battle between Globalism and Nationalism.  It has now become a very heated battle, especially in the U.S., where President Trump is leading the fight for Nationalists, and the Globalists are mostly Democrats who are firmly supported by the United Nations.  Continue reading

Immigration – the Defining Issue of the 2020 U.S. Election. Part 1

Part 1: Immigration – Left and Right

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

“It’s a Republic, if you can keep it.”   Benjamin Franklin, 1789


Jupiter is the planet of expansion, abundance, law, justice and religion, while Saturn is the planet of constriction, discipline, limits, borders and rules – especially for marriage, families, and societies. Saturn is more concerned with tradition, material security and safety.  In the planetary hierarchy, the teaching is that rules are needed in the midst of expansion and prosperity.   Continue reading

Spies, Propaganda, Censorship & the Origins of the Trump-Russia Collusion Investigation

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

This is not breaking news. It has been out there in independent media for several years, but you may not have heard it.  The conspiracy against Donald Trump began from at least 2015 onward and used the combined powers of the DOJ (U.S. Dept. of Justice), the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), the NSA (National Security Agency), and the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) to run a counterintelligence operation against a presidential candidate, also using foreign intelligence agencies.  Their allies were the leftist mainstream media, also known as the DNC (Democratic National Committee) Media Complex.  But even earlier, from 2012 onward, the Obama administration spied on its political opponents through illegal access to the NSA data base.  Continue reading

Jussie Smollett – Act 2

By Edith Hathaway ©2019

On Tues. March 26, 2019 all criminal charges against the actor Jussie Smollett were suddenly and mysteriously dropped and the case sealed by Cook County Attorney General Kim Foxx. This was for his alleged hate crime hoax on Jan. 29, 2019. Though she had recused herself in the case on Feb. 19, 2019, Foxx now says she had not really done so.  The sequence is unprecedented due to the prior Grand Jury indictment of Jussie Smollett with 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for making a false police report. The indictment was based on only a portion of the large body of evidence presented by the Chicago Police Department. Continue reading

Jussie Smollett – Hate Crime Hoax in Chicago

By Edith Hathaway © 2019

Jussie Smollett, the popular American TV actor and singer, was charged on Feb. 21, 2019 with the felony of filing a false police report. He faces the possibility of up to 3 years in prison for an alleged hate crime that Chicago Police now says he himself choreographed.  His bond was set at $100,000, and upon paying a $10,000 bond he was released from police custody the same day, with a court date set for March 14, 2019.  In spite of overwhelming physical evidence and testimony, evidence from surveillance cameras as well as credit card, bank, phone, and text records from Smollett and the two men he hired and rehearsed to do the deed, Smollett continues to plead innocent of any wrongdoing.

Brett Kavanaugh and the Run-up to the Last Close Pluto Station opposite the USA Sun (3° orb)

by Edith Hathaway © 2018

“If you vote no – you’re legitimizing the most despicable thing I have ever seen in my time in politics,” said a furious Senator Lindsay Graham to Republican colleagues at Brett Kavanaugh’s Judicial Committee hearing Sept. 27, 2018, also dubbed the Sexual Assault Hearing.  On their side, Democrats decided the hearing was also despicable, but for totally different reasons.  Some of this was echoed in the T-shirts of battling supporters outside the Dirksen Senate Office building that morning, with a much admired anti-Kavanaugh T-shirt reading “Men are Trash” and a pro-Kavanaugh T-shirt reading “I Stand with Brett.”  Continue reading

Peter Strzok – Update

Peter Strzok (pronounced “strock”) was the lead FBI investigator in the Mueller probe into both Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Trump-Russia collusion, 2015 -2017.  Last month I wrote about The Inspector General’s Report, June 14, 2018 and the critical role Strzok played in both of these high profile investigations.   He appeared before Congressional hearings June 27, 2018 (behind-closed-doors) and July 12, 2018 (televised).  Both sessions endured for over 10 hours, but the latter received particular notoriety.  This story is not over yet.  Continue reading

More Investigation around the 2016 U.S. Election: The Inspector General’s Report, June 14, 2018

by Edith Hathaway © 2018

The IG Report: Background 

“On July 10, 2015, the FBI Counterintelligence Division opened a criminal investigation [on Hillary Clinton’s emails] in response to the 811 referral from the IC IG [Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General].[i]  Although only a small percentage of 811 referrals result in criminal investigations, witnesses told the OIG [Office of the Inspector General] that a criminal investigation was necessary to determine the extent of classified information on former Secretary Clinton’s private server, who was responsible for introducing the information into an unclassified system, and why it was placed there. The FBI gave the investigation the code name ‘Midyear Exam’…” Continue reading

Anatomy of a Pluto Station: Las Vegas Shooting and Other Notable Events

By Edith Hathaway © 2017

Of course this wasn’t just any Pluto Station. When Pluto went Stationary Direct (from the earth’s vantage point) on Sept. 28, 2017 it was extraordinary in being almost exactly opposite the USA Sun, and the first time ever in U.S. history and in Pluto’s 248-year orbit around the Sun that such a phenomenon has occurred. I’ve been writing about this astronomical/astrological event since spring 2017, but let us review some of the main components.  Continue reading

The Great Divide: American Civil War Redux

by Edith Hathaway © 2017

The American Civil War of the 1860s is reappearing in multiple ways during the summer and fall of 2017: The classic Civil War film Gone with the Wind (1939) was removed from a popular film festival in Memphis, Tennessee. Deemed “insensitive” to the local population, which is 64% black, it was removed from the 2017 and 2018 series after a showing on Aug. 11, 2017. The statue of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate soldiers may be removed all across the South. An Asian TV announcer with the name Robert Lee was removed from his announcer post at ESPN – temporarily, as a football game Aug. 26, 2017 was to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia, the scene of the protests and counter protests in mid-August regarding Robert E. Lee’s statue.[i] And since George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were also major slave owners, the question arises: Should their statues be removed as well? And what about their images on U.S. currency? Continue reading

ACCIDENTAL JOURNALIST & FRIENDS : The Rise of Citizen Journalists

by Edith Hathaway © 2017

George Webb calls himself the “Accidental Journalist,” while his admirers call him “an extraordinary and intrepid investigator” and his detractors call him (predictably) a “conspiracy theorist.” Others like him have become “citizen journalists” in recent years, joining the burgeoning ranks of on-line Independent news media. Generally they do not feel served by the mainstream media, especially during the 2016 U.S. Presidential election and dating back to 9-11 or earlier. Many citizen journalists did not plan to be journalists, but moved into it out of utter frustration with the level of information being presented on mainstream news (MSM).  Continue reading

Deep State vs. Head of State : Tr. Pluto opposes the USA Sun (3° orb)

by Edith Hathaway © 2017

“Apparently, ‘conspiracy stuff’ is now shorthand for unspeakable truth.”

Gore Vidal, Oct. 2002

Transiting Pluto opposite anyone’s natal Sun is an arresting phenomenon, confronting the person’s very identity and legitimacy on deep levels. There are no political or geographical boundaries to Pluto’s realm, just as with Plutonian elements such as radioactivity. Expand the implications to cover the first-ever Pluto opposition to the USA Sun. Pluto’s orbit is 248.4 years, and the Sun in the chart of a nation-state is the President, or Head of State; also the presidency.  Continue reading
