A birthtime for Julian Assange

has been given a time of birth for Julian Assange, head of Wikileaks, from an unidentified source.  They write:

Our source has requested anonymity, which we are respecting. Both Tem and I felt that the circumstances through which we got the information, and some other details, suggest that this is an authentic time. The source personally viewed, but was not able to make a copy of, Mr. Assange’s birth certificate.

Update: our source clarified what s/he saw: “The birth record (is) from the registry which has appended to it a copy of the birth certificate but the hour was not on the certificate but on the record in the registry files.”

I am normally suspect of unidentified sources of birth times, and as you’ll read in the comments from Australian astrologers, the method of data collection appears to be somewhat suspect since birth records there evidently do not include birth times and can be obtained only by a relative.

Until there is more clarification on the source of the birth time I think it’s safer not to speculate on what the chart might be.

The astrology of Julian Assange: we have a birth date!

Updated 12/2/10  with more chart details. As you may know, on Tuesday the Wikileaks website released hundreds of cablegrams from diplomats in a variety of countries around the world.  The feedback against Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, has of course been profound.  In fact, Interpol has just issued a “” for Assange for an investigation into his “sex crimes.”  This makes a date of birth available for Assange, something we have been craving since he burst onto the scene.

that his next target is Big Business.  In any case, Assange isvirtually single-handedly acting out the planetary drama of Pluto (destruction and revelation of secrets) in Capricorn (governments and Big Business) about to be set off by a square from Uranus (radical revolutionary behavior) in Aries (individual rights).  In fact, right now Uranus is at a virtual standstill and is acting most powerfully, which has stimulated the revolutionary fervor of the Wikileaks action.

Julian Assange astrologyJulian Assange (born July 3, 1971 according to the Interpol documents, time unknown, Townsville Australia) has the Sun in Cancer, with a nearly exact square from the Sun to Uranus which explains his radical tendencies.  People with the Sun in Cancer or with Cancer strong in their charts are extremely sensitive to the needs of others, and as a rule feel the pain in the world far more than the average person.

You can read a quasi-biography of him here in my earlier post; very little is known about his early life but he was used as a model for a work of fiction which reveals some clues.

Chiron is also square to Assange’s Sun, and […]

The astrology of North Korea (updated)

This article was originally posted in 2009 but has been updated to account for recent events.

astrology of north koreaBefore you can have an accurate astrological profile, you must have an accurate date of birth.  In a mundane chart of a nation this gets a little tricky.  What is the moment of birth?  Is it the moment that the nation is announced?  Is it when the constitution is signed?  Ratified?  New leaders elected?

In my online research today I found several different dates used by astrologers for North Korea.  There is a chart for August 10, 1945, the date that the US War Department decided to partition the country at the 38th parallel.  There is a chart for September 10, 1948 which appears to have come originally from Nick Campion’s Book of World Horoscopes and is incorrect.

In my view, using the August 1945 date for North Korea is a bit like using the time of conception for a birthchart.  Information from the US State Department and several Korean websites confirm that the actual birthing of the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea (DPRK) was proclaimed by Kim Il Sung on September 9, 1948, and this is the day that is celebrated by the North Korean people as the founding anniversary.

Chiron in the comments section suggested that we must also look at the revision of the North Korean constitution, but additional research reveals that the constitution has been revised many times including in 1992 and 1998.  Because the government did not change, I’m inclined to disregard these charts.

I have not been able to find a suitable time for the North Korea chart so I will use noon as Robert Blaschke does in  for The Mountain Astrologer.

A prayer for peace on Veteran’s Day

Veterans dayThere is little doubt that the United State economy is dependent upon military spending, as shown in a recent study by the University of Alabama at Birmingham.   As is often noted, General and then President Dwight Eisenhower, warned back in 1960 of the dangers of the military-industrial complex in a speech which is eerily as true today as it was fifty years ago:

Throughout America’s adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad.

Progress toward these noble goals is persistently threatened by the conflict now engulfing the world. It commands our whole attention, absorbs our very beings. We face a hostile ideology — global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose, and insidious in method. Unhappily the danger is poses promises to be of indefinite duration. To meet it successfully, there is called for, not so much the emotional and transitory sacrifices of crisis, but rather those which enable us to carry forward steadily, surely, and without complaint the burdens of a prolonged and complex struggle — with liberty the stake. Only thus shall we remain, despite every provocation, on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment.

Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to […]

The astrology of Keith Olbermann’s suspension

On Friday November 6th it was announced that MSNBC was suspending commentator Keith Olbermann indefinitely without pay for making political contributions to Democratic candidates in violation of NBC’s stated policy against making such contributions without prior approval.  In preventing its political commentators from donating to political candidates, MSNBC is attempting to draw a distinction between itself as a news organization and Fox News, which not only openly contributes to political candidates but hires them as commentators on their “news” programs which then become platforms from which these candidates can campaign. Update Monday November 8: Olbermann has been reinstated as of Tuesday this week.

Rachel Maddow, Olbermann’s protege at MSNBC, has said of the suspension:

“I understand the rule. I understand what it means to break it,” Maddow said on her show.

“I believe everyone should face the same treatment under that rule. I also personally believe that the point has been made and we should have Keith back hosting ‘Countdown.’

I have not been able to find any comments by Keith Olbermann himself on the subject, but he is certainly going through  some interesting planetary cycles at the moment.  I profiled Olbermann in this earlier article, but would like to repost some relevant passages from that original post that help to shed light on the current situation:

Mercury is in harmony (trine) with Mars in his chart which energizes (Mars) his thought process (Mercury) and gives him an ability to express powerful views without seeming overly aggressive. Mars is an independent planet, and in trine to Mercury it amplifies Keith’s independent (Mars) thinking (Mercury), adding to the radical tendency that his chart already shows with the Aquarian Sun opposite Uranus. However, Mars in […]
