Open Letter to Professor Ray Fogelson/In defense of Saul Alinsky

I always hear the reedy sound of some ’60’s folksinger (dave van ronk) twanging out jack o diamonds when i think of you … however, we are both Cubs fans … and eureka — I have found it. The Cure for the Curse of the Cubs!!! Birria de Chivo Mole. Mole because it is Chocolate — KaKao, theobromo, the medicine of the gods — eg the Cure.

This is a provisional invitation to the ceremonies judging various recipes devised by (theoretical) lth foodies the date of the first home game of the season this April on the rooftop of the building I live in which is w/in sight of Wrigley Field, being about a mile and a half north, slightly to the left of center field from the perspective of home plate. The wide screen tv properly positioned will give that rooftop experience and (theoretically) Rokito’s (an achingly exquisite taqueria next to Truman College under the el) will be sponsoring it … the wrapper of this to be designed by him or his artist friend … to do a latter day rendition of the Mayan glyph of Kakao — who, since the cocoa beans being medium of exchange is certain a major God of the Marketplace — I’ve just ordered Michael Coe’s True History of Chocolate.

Well, you’re invited.

27 January 2012

I’ve got to check out the Mayan dating for this year of the Dragon. Moon’s in Pisces — went over Mitt’s sun yesterday — notice the comeback? He’s got a good chance of winning in Florida — astrologically speaking … transiting Venus on his sun — transiting sun to his venus this weekend — betcha he buys a lot to firm up this minor victory — do they still hang Chad in Florida? Seriously, what is this about Mormon underwear.

With the demise of Hull House — today — how sad — Jane Adams and Hull House being Chicago’s equivalent of the Statue of Liberty — it’s like watching the Statue of Liberty implode — or run out, sort of used up all your degrees of freedom (and Maggie Daley wasn’t born on 4March1942 as I’d read in somewhere — Anniversary of Chicago’s incorporation, but rather an early Cancer of 1943, which is a helluva lot different) … OWS-Chicago is housed winter quarter at 500 W Cermak, which hits better blue collar notes than 1 Prudential Plaza … that’s the address of Obama Nat’l HQ, you would think a community organizer connected to Saul Alinsky would have a better ear for what constitutes street cred in Chicago. Location, Location, Location.

I realized that in the main campaign there are no WASPS in the game! Except for Ron Paul. Who should do well in the western states where the Protestant Ethic still burns & the deer and the antelope are road kill. If Senators Bill Bradley and John Kerry did a regular talk show commentary — you’d see old time rock n roll. If Bill Bradley & Phil Johnson had resolved the basketball strike during the ’96 Chicago primary season & given Chicago another ring … Oprah wouldn’t have abandoned us.

I’m predicting — grace to the Mercury Retrograde choreography starting with mercury in its retrograde station peaking about 3 PM or so … where it will finally return on December 4 or 5 … this is a recapitulation of November 2000’s mercury madness — sending it to the Supreme Court — let’s hang the Court this time and send it to Congress — the 2012 Mercury Madness sets off Maenaed energies with the eclipse season … one, the Lunar, sort of ominously on Black Friday … this the Full Moon eclipse that should ravage Newt qua Dionysius in Bacchante madness melting his plastique at the mall, provided, of course that the 11:45 pm birth time is correct. (donchya kinda wanna vote for him just to find out?)

the election will be sent to Congress, the 3rd party, hypothetically drawing enough votes to hold both major candidates to less than 50% electoral — which will postpone decision until after the new crew is initiated early in January 2013 — after the End of Days — eg the Solstice — What do you think chances would be that this Congress among which there will be a sizable # of Libertarians … will elect? May I suggest a provisional Triumvirate? It got Rome through a tough time.

Yeah, right, it’s a nothing chart Solstice 2012 — except … we won’t have a POTUS-elect by the End of 2012 … and the horoscope of Inauguration Day 2013 is not a nothing chart — all four of the horsemen of the apocalypse are saddled up. Mars/Uranus up the kazoo — that connotes nuclear energy (I know the difference between U 235 and U 238, it’s a rule I learned in school, underneath Stagg Field) It also connotes cybertheft, military technology … the mars in aquarius will have transited US Moon Jan 1i7 (Happy Birthday, Al Capone & Robert Maynard Hutchins — this is the Big Pineapple) Additional to Pluto/Saturn action that interacts/aspects the Mars/Uranus  — Mars on US Moon a few days before Inauguration Day — you know we have enemies … we could be attacked — very possibly cyber attacked, could be a renegade OWS programmer … the Pluto/Saturn is governmental progressions.

The Tet of 2013 should be very offensive.

Political Scene

Just did the US lunar return — today –in about 2 hours 10 minutes. Obama better be polishing up his speech tonight .. I also looked at 7 February 2012 about say 7:30 am Chicago time, when the transiting sun conjuncts the degree of the US aquarian moon (7GE34/35 ASC) … now that’s a day to seize & my argument why Obama won 2008 … his ascendent is finely calibrated to the degree of the US Moon — 7 minutes of arc off, giving him a rare and precise finger on the pulse of the US — remember how they said Reagan captured the ‘mood’ of the US — with his Aquarian sun. The chart I use for Newt — 11:45 pm one day in the middle of June 1943 — my high school class was loaded with geminis of 1943 … so many I wonder what was going on in Little Italy in Niagara Falls on Labor Day in the middle of WWII??? Newt’s the full moon of that vintage. Joe Namath is another. USA was going through a Uranus return — 84 year cycle — the bones behind Lincoln’s four score and seven, the Civil War occurred on the first Uranus return of the USA smack dab on US conjunction at 8GExx. WWII another Uranus return. Listening to campaign results currently is very prime … chairos — perfect moments.

Given the time I use for Newt’s chart (Romney’s birth time published … Mitt’s an early Gemini rising, Newt’s Mars conjuncts it … well Newt’s Asc is 19 Aquarius, conjunct Obama’s & US by a degree … watch carefully Newt’s behavior Feb 6-8 to calibrate his Ascendant (note to self). My brother is a couple/few weeks younger than Mitt, born later in March 1947 … that era features Uranus on US mars — George W Bush has it too — hence his war in Iraq … Uranus/Mars a bitch of an aspect — my bro’s uranus conjuncts my mars, that it a very cain and abel aspect, you have no idea how much he pissed me off growing up, we haven’t spoken for centuries. Ir is a bomb Hanoi aspect — a strong connection in an individual’s chart is often indicative of homosexuality — Philadelphia — brotherly love — places it historically in the wee hours of 4July 1776 — a month after the Mayan 13 Katun series that ends on the winter solstice this year — the End of Days … bisecting the time between election and inauguration days … and let me tell you — Inauguration Day 20Jan2013 looks like Armageddon.

If you are writing a scenario incorporating these energies — well transiting mars exactly conjuncts US Moon on 17Jan2013, that could mean an attack on US, including a major cyber attack … I’m predicting that given the Mercury retrograde on Election Day (like 2000, remember hanging Chad?, we’ll do Trixie this year) which has the possibility of sending the election to Congress, a major strategy for — which decision will no doubt have to wait until Congress inaugurated in early January — we may not know the POTUS elect until Inauguration Day … and given the way Congress has been in gridlock … we may have to quickly form an ad hoc triumvirate, in order to respond definitely to the turmoil and resulting chaos that the chart promises and NOT blow up the world — Powerful Mars/Uranus aspects galore

Including — since Saturn will have departed Libra (next october) and in Scorpio and be in a very nasty mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn — which is squared by the aforesaid active Uranus in Aries, squared like in e = mc squared … further integrating this killer of a chart … I would hate to be the mother of a child born on that day. Indeed, this whole epoch … because the activity is on long term placements …

Happy New Year …

Talking Heads

Well those boring old Republicans are sure interesting lately … I hope Newt prevails as the GOP candidate (I’m predicting it, but this is where I can see my thumb on the scale, except I do vote, early and often, as I learnt in collitch)

I hope Newt’s the candidate, because as it says on the masthead “Astrologer with a Jones for History” and Newt’s a History Teacher … well when push comes to shove UC can make him titulear Dean of their New Political school and make an Alinsky rad out of him.

I like Saul Alinsky … it went under the rubric of ‘action anthropology’ … which is what you HAVE to do in a multi-ethnic urban community … as for Obama teaching radical ideas … c’mon on now, he pays rent at 1 Prudential Plaza, surely there are more radically based landlords in a much less button down low center of gravity chicago streetwise kind of place, that would win him the affections of the white working classes.  Like Pilsen, for instance.

I’ve suggested via email to the OWS people to set up a vigil at 1 Prudential and put it to the man.

On Time

I’ve been surveying the literature on what is known about time … trolled at The Edge — and my definition is by definition Conceptually Elegant and given what is out there ne plus ultra, eg definitive.

The theoretical physicists are based on Einstein’s space/time continuum which it interactive and warps — eg is not evenly distributed throughout the universe.  Well, Albert,  that is because time is GEOCENTRIC — it being primarily a function of the Terrrestial Axis of Rotation (“TAR”). And, because it is GEOCENTRIC it exhibits certain properties analogous to gravity … how much pull does earth’s gravitational force have upon a Lorenzian butterfly three galaxies to the southeast … not so much — so too with time.

Time being a dimension unique to Earth — Gaia’s Dance

Everything spherical that spins generates a frequency, and when it is involved in an inter-related set of spins it consitutes some sort of temporal molecule a planetary paradigm, an individual dimension — each planet in the solar system has it own temporal molecule — it owns particular dimension, which may or may not be penetratable to us earthlings. EG that might be “life” on Mars which is temporally sensitized to Mar’s particularities of spin and the other quiddities, such as the revolutions of Phobos and Demo and, the particulars (angle, etc) of Martian Axis of Rotation. This set of spin frequencies might be in resonance with an element (theoretically the earth’s temporal frequence resonant w/the carbon atom which stimulated it into life), the Martian set theoretically resonant with a different element — which anything terrestially based might not be able to penetrate.

The TAR with respect to the system’s central star, establishes the diurnal/noctural cycle. Time did not begin with the big bang. Time did not begin until Earth was created, it being a Geocentric Dimension.

There is an immeasurable eternity between the big bang and the formation of the solar system and earth’s first spin — it was evening and it was morning of the first day some 3.5 billion  x 365.2422 theoretically measurable days ago.

The nexus of the space/time continuum — the bere shith, as it were — is best illustrated through the simple dynamic geometry of the TAR with regard to the Galactic Plane — or, more elegantly Galactic Disc. The TAR’s angle to the DISC is ever changing, due to the 26K year wobble which is the precessional cycle, describing a circle among the polar stars — currently the axis ‘points’ to Polaris, but Thuban, Vega and Deneb also serve in their turn.

The 12,000 year frequency of the Ice Ages seem to be concomittant of the Precessional Cycle, analagous to the lunar cycle’s concommitant tides. The cycles that determine the terrestial temporal frequency (“Time”) are the terrestial rotation, (day), lunar/terrestial barycentric revolution (month, tides), TAR revolution about sun (season, year), precessional cycle — epoch.

You do the math.
