  • USPS Post – the pony express hobbled

    1 Comment
      The US Postal Service (USPS) has warned that millions of mail-in votes may not arrive in time to be counted on the presidential election day. A record number of people are expected to vote by mail due to the pandemic. Trump said he was blocking additional funding for the USPS to help with election issues, because he opposed mail-in voting. He says it will lead to voting fraud; experts say the voting system is safe from tampering. The USPS was founded 1 July 1971 in Washington and has an inventive Cancer Sun square Uranus; with a helpful though not entirely practical Saturn opposition Neptune Jupiter; and an excitable Venus trine Mars and square Pluto. The Cancer Sun certainly fits …Keep reading »

  • 2020 – your money or your life

    A reprise in precis of the 2020 astrology and the coronavirus. The state of play at present is 750,000 deaths worldwide out of a population of 7.8 billion people.

  • Kamala Harris – a seasoned campaigner ++ – toxic Trump reaction

    Kamala Harris, the tough-on-crime former Attorney General of California now a senator, has been selected as Joe Biden’s running mate.

That latter is softened to a degree by being square Jupiter in Taurus which has a range of meanings from arrogant, overly indulgent to an enlightened social administrator. What is standing her in good stead this year and …Keep reading »

A landlocked country of 9.5 million inhabitants, with Poland to the west, Russia to the east, Ukraine south and Lithuania, Latvia to the north, it has been badly hit by economic mismanagement and the pandemic. Belarus’s history is complicated though it became a founding member of the Soviet Union post-1917. They suffered unthinkable losses during World War 11, estimated to be 25% of its population when Nazi Germany invaded the USSR. About 85% of the capital Minsk was destroyed in bombing raids. The Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986 also …Keep reading »
  • Jimmy Lai & Hong Kong – backed into a corner

      Jimmy Lai, Hong Kong media tycoon and staunch pro-democracy activist has been arrested by under suspicion of colluding with foreign forces.

Hundreds of police also raided Lai’s Apply Daily tabloid newspaper. In June, he said the national security law would make the operation of a free press not just difficult but dangerous. “But we have no choice but to go on with it. We don’t think about the consequences, we just have to carry …Keep reading »
