Pisces Sun, Gemini Moon: The Source Code, the Spook Loop, and the Psychic Surveillance State (Part II, “Through a PRISM, Darkly”)

September 11th, 2014 No comments

Continued from Part I, “The False Flag Operation”

By now you’ve heard about “PRISM”, the NSA surveillance program so all encompassing it can “watch your ideas as they form”, to quote Edward Snowden’s assessment of its capabilities. What you probably haven’t heard about is a database and pattern recognition program by the name of “PROMIS”, the circa 1982 grandaddy progenitor of today’s mass surveillance systems. Why haven’t you heard about PROMIS before? There’s a number of reasons not the least of which is journalists who get too deep into the story have a nasty habit of turning up dead, usually under very suspicious circumstances. (Source) An astrological consideration of PROMIS is certainly in order at this time because, as an early 1990′s Australian news program “A Current Affair” describes it, the PROMIS saga revolves around “spying on a scale never before imagined”:

Using the date of its creation as its date of birth, PROMIS is a Pisces Sun, Gemini Moon. (Chart) Astrologer Linda Goodman observes that Pisces “absorbs people’s feeling and emotions like a psychic sponge” while Gemini “always wants something to read”. (Source) As explained in a previous article, this pairing can get so good at connecting, collating, and cross-indexing subtle impressions from the psychic world (Pisces) with data driven perceptions from the information world (Gemini) that he or she will seem to sense your thoughts before you do:

When the intuitive abilities of a Pisces Sun are combined with a Gemini Moon’s need for constant communication the result is a Sun/Moon pairing that’s adaptable, versatile, hyper-flexible, and hyper-aware. This combination is often something of a savant when it comes to languages, whether spoken or symbolic, ethereal or technological.

Pisces is associated with diffusive invisibility while Gemini is associated with multiple identities. The combination can thus ply its trade while remaining opaque, obfuscated, obscured or even disguised as something innocuous, similar to what a chameleon can do. In the old days it made for a great witch (or warlock). In the modern day it makes for a great computer hacker.

William Gibson, the writer who coined the phrase “cyberspace” in his 1984 novel Neuromancer, is a representative Pisces/Gemini. (Chart) His novels typically feature computer hackers, renegade CIA agents, ubiquitous surveillance systems, and other techno-occult themes.

According to astrologer Bill Tierney, “Pisces seeps into a situation’s hidden layers to uncover less visible facts” while “Gemini’s job is to spot, observes, and articulate”. (Source)

Short for “Prosecutor’s Management Information System”, PROMIS was originally intended as a federal case management tool. Designed by former NSA analyst Bill Hamilton, it worked by reading and integrating a wide variety of previously non-compatible databases into a single elegant, searchable, micro-processor powered crystal ball of sorts. This enabled the prosecutor to peer into previously “hidden layers” (Pisces) of a case to “uncover less visible facts” by “spotting, observing, and articulating” (Gemini) all the actions of the defendants, witnesses, arresting officers, judges, detectives, and defense lawyers in all their previous cases. (Source) When all that information was cross-collated and analyzed it became easy to predict which defense attorney and/or which judge was going to take which course of action in which case with what degree of probability. A legal strategy that might have taken months or years to research and develop before PROMIS could now be decided upon in nano-seconds.

Intelligence agencies quickly realized that with a few modifications PROMIS could be altered to quickly cross-collate and analyze a target’s bank deposits/withdrawals, credit card transactions, insurance files, stock investments, book purchases, phone calls, porn habits, geographic movements, as well as those of all their associates out to several degrees of separation. When all of that information is overlaid with data from reconnaissance satellites, surveillance cameras, and license plate readers the resulting dossier is astonishing in its thoroughness. Investment banker Catherine Austin Fitts, the Assistant Secretary of HUD during the Bush I administration, has said the film Enemy of the State is a good approximation of what these systems were capable of back around 1992. Today the systems are run not by humans sitting in front of terminals but by automated, artificial intelligence powered super-computers that compile high detail, low-cost, real time dossiers on the entire population, not just selected troublemakers. (Source) What’s depicted in Enemy of the State is thus more than a generation out of date but if you fast forward to 00:48 of this scene you’ll at least get a decent, if fictionalized, visual reference for how invisible (Pisces) connections (Gemini) can be discerned with PROMIS progeny:

According to LAPD narcotics detective turned investigative reporter Michael C. Ruppert, by the turn of the millennium the system had mutated into an automated, algorithm driven Hydra, with a computerized “head” invisibly (Pisces) peering (Gemini) into every database and through every camera on the planet 24 hours a day. (Source) In other words, how modern government surveillance is less “FBI agent listening in on your phone calls” and more “All Seeing Eye, Version 2.0″:

What would you do if you possessed software that could think, understand every language in the world, that provided peep holes into everyone else’s computer “dressing rooms,” that could insert data into computers without people’s knowledge, that could fill in blanks beyond human reasoning and also predict what people would do – before they did it? You would probably use it wouldn’t you?

[My source] described an actual physical point in space, further out than ever thought possible and now used by US satellites. This distance is made possible by PROMIS progeny so evolved that they make the original software look primitive. [From there], everything would be visible in terms of measurable and predictable patterns – the ultimate big picture.

Once its power and advantages are demonstrated, most corporations, banks or nations are eager to be a part of the “exclusive” club that has it. (Source)

There are, of course, perfectly legal and reasonable uses for PROMIS. According to Bill Hamilton, it’s now routinely used to by banks, insurance companies, and law enforcement to spot everything from identity theft to insider trading to insurance fraud to tax evasion. By 2007, the technology had advanced to the point that credit card companies could even predict which married couples would get divorced with a 95% plus rate of accuracy just by running their credit card transactions through AI-powered “data waterfalls”. (Source) That’s more accurate than most psychics (Pisces), no matter how many inquiries (Gemini) they make.

The software’s predictive abilities come alive via the power of what’s known as “block modeling”, a process IBM pioneered beginning in the 1980s when it began building computerized models of its own employees. (Source) (It’s now called “dimensional modeling”) How it works: let’s assume a person is so unique that they’re one in a million. That means there’s 350 other people with their exact psychological profile just in the United States alone. Even the most unique person’s thoughts can thus be predicted with a high degree of accuracy based on what the other 349 people in their respective data “block” have done or thought in similar situations. If an agency or corporation can data mine all of a person or community’s emails, phone calls, google searches, banking records, etc, then automatically compare and cross-analyze those against the same data mined from all the other persons and/or communities in similar “blocks” the resulting psychological profiles start to get extraordinarily granular. The software is so powerful that journalist Danny Casolaro was murdered for his investigation into it back in 1991. Dubbed “the Octopus conspiracy”, the story even made an episode of the television series Unsolved Mysteries. Fast forward to 4:07, you’ll even get to see Bill Hamilton, the man who developed PROMIS in the first place:

Astrologers Suzi and Charles Harvey tell us the Pisces/Gemini pairing has internal “lines of communication” which are used to “keep a running commentary on people and situations” (Source) That’s exactly how PROMIS works, by accessing every “line of communication” imaginable to keep running, real-time dossiers (“commentaries”) on not only people but also entire governments, organizations, neighborhoods, corporations, communities, ecosystems, families, and financial markets. According to a UK Register article entitled “War Games on the Grandest Scale”, the Pentagon has been utilizing PROMIS like systems to build virtual reality computer simulations of all 6.5 billion people on the planet since 2007. The system, called the “Sentient World Simulation” is, for all intents and purposes, a psychic (Pisces) data exchange (Gemini) — one that can predict the likely actions of an individual or community years before they’ve even thought to take them. That sounds like something out of a futuristic science fiction movie but it’s actually already decade old technology. According to a recent PBS article, in the early-to-mid 2000s the National Security Agency developed a computer system called “AQUAINT” (Advanced Question Answering for Intelligence), an artificial intelligence powered black box agents can query to find out what person X thinks about subject Y. (Source) AQUAINT is, in effect, a psychic surveillance system — one whose lineage can almost certainly be traced back to the PROMIS software originally designed by Bill Hamilton and stolen from his company INSLAW.

When Jefferson Anderson wrote in 1978 that the Pisces/Gemini pairing is “actually several clever individuals inside of one and can play any part in order to get what you want” he had no idea just how accurate he was. (Source) The ability of PROMIS progeny to manipulate any database (“play any part”) makes them extremely effective at enabling subtle manipulation of both groups and individuals, from Wall Streeters to whistle-blowers, multi-national corporations to localized protest movements. Suffice it to say, it’s a excellent tool for blackmail and intimidation. Those old school J. Edgar Hoover tactics, while still useful, are crude child’s play compared to where PROMIS progeny really shine. When integrated with the latest advancements in neural networking and parallel processing they can perform not only surveillance but also intervention in the systems being monitored: cell phones, power grids, court systems, oil rigs, research facilities, traffic lights, automobiles, stock markets, email accounts, tax and regulatory records, anything computerized. (Source) Whoever wrote the 1992 Robert Redford film Sneakers had such a detailed understanding of PROMIS software’s capabilities that it’s amazing the movie was even allowed to be made. In one particularly chilling scene, Redford’s team realize the software can be used not only for theft and espionage but to do things like artificially shut down parts of the power grid or even to crash passenger jets by manipulating air traffic control systems:

As coincidence would have it, PROMIS dervied software was on the computers of the FAA, NORAD, the Secret Service, and the White House the day of the 9/11 attacks. (Source)

Using its original air date as its date of birth, the classic Twilight Zone episode “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” is also a Pisces/Gemini — one whose plot bears more than a few similarities to the PROMIS software saga. (Chart) In the episode space aliens on a secret mission use advanced technology to manipulate a town’s electrical and telecommunications grid, plunging the residents into a frenzy of paranoia, suspicion, chaos, and violent scapegoating. A 2002 reboot of the series replaced the team of invading space aliens with a secret Pentagon unit tasked with stoking people’s fears of terrorism.

In the epilogue to “Monsters” Rod Serling stated, “The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, explosions, and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts . . .” Unfortunately, as events of the last decade have made clear, the mass weaponization of our thoughts is no longer something confined to the Twilight Zone.

Taurus Sun, Aquarius Moon: The Maverick Moonshiner and the Redneck Renegade, the Hillbilly Heretic and the High Tech Hash Slinger, the Black Sheep Skywalker and the Grizzled Good Ole’ Boy Turned Barbed Wire Bandito

August 27th, 2014 No comments

Symbolized as a beautiful bovine, Taurus is the sign of the Rancher and the Grower, the Landscaper and the Gardener, the Biodynamic Farmer and the Agricultural Biologist, the King of Top Shelf Liquor and the Queen of High Quality Chocolate, the Sous Chef of Slow Cooking and the Cuisinier-in-Chief of Sensual Delights. Taurus is the sign of resource accumulation so whether they’re driving a brand new Bentley with 22 inch rims through the streets of Beverly Hills or a used Chevy truck with mud flaps through through the backwoods of Georgia, Taureans usually find a way to materially provide for themselves and their families, whether in good times or bad. They’re also the sign most likely to have a garden, a green thumb, and be found romping around grass fields. (Source) To illustrate: singer Willie Nelson is a Taurus whose made a career out of singing about living life close to the earth through both good times and bad. He’s also well-known for his love of grass.

Sitting 270 degress from Taurus is Aquarius, a radically different sign. Where Taurus Suns are identified with the conventional, Aquarius Moons are emotionally nourished by the radical. This the sign of the Genius and the Mad Scientist, the Rebel and the Revolutionary, the Exile and the Eccentric, the Antagonist and the Anti-Hero, the Social Heretic and the Sectarian Pagan, the Oddball Nonconformist and the Off-Beat Iconoclast, the Avant Garde Android and the Maverick Mini-Computer, the Splinter Cell of Scientific Dissent and the Professor Emeritus of Social Anarchy. When a person’s Moon (emotional needs) is in Aquarius (the future), they’re nourished by the the unpredictable, the unconventional, and the uncharted. They often have an instinctive (Moon) understanding of technology and are emotionally nourished by unusual hobbies such as UFO-watching or computer hacking. (Source) Symbolized as two lightning bolts, Aquarius can take the “30,000 foot view” of events so it has a tendency to view things before others can. Perceiving the Earth’s inhabitants from a vantage point analogous to outer space is why Aquarius Moons often resonate emotionally with the fringes of society, whether in matters technological or political. To illustrated: actor Steve McQueen is a representative Aquarius Moon. In addition to his numerous real-life run-ins with the law, he is best remembered for portraying rebellious anti-heroes, counterculture iconoclasts, and renegades wanted dead-or-alive. His most notable role came in 1963 when he portrayed Captain Virgil Hilts, an Allied prisoner of war escaped from a German concentration camp in The Great Escape, a film based on the real life escape from the Nazis’ infamous Stalag Luft III prison camp.

Combine a Taurus Sun’s orientation to food and farming with an Aquarius Moon’s need to rebel against the status quo and the result is a Sun/Moon pairing likely to succeed in money making enterprises (Taurus) that are somewhat anarchist (Aquarius) in nature. In particular they’re likely to succeed at forms of agriculture (Taurus) which involve breaking with the status-quo (Aquarius). Astrologer Sue Tompkins writes of the Taurus/Aquarius knack for expressing material values (Taurus) by way of avant-garde groups or enterprises (Aquarius):

This is also sometimes the combination of the person who seeks to live a simple, uncluttered life close to nature, sometimes in building a community life; the person who lives in an unconventional style but nevertheless in a way that is solid and secure. Thus it is the combination of the hippie, the “Good Lifer” concerned with self-sufficency.

One manifestation of Taurus/Aquarius is surely ‘Friends of the Earth’. There is often an intuitive understanding of the earth, and the type may be practical and inventive. Perhaps this is also the combination of the organic farmer, the person who wants to revolutionize the way the masses might be fed.

In all sorts of different ways, feeding groups of people on a large scale is also often a theme with this mix. This is the individual who does all the catering for their friends to the club to which they belong. (Source)

To illustrate: using its operational start date as its date of birth, the seed library started by the Good-Life minded folks at the Joseph T. Simpson public library in Mechanisburg, Pennsylvania is a Taurus/Aquarius. (Chart) Launched on Earth Day 2014 by the Cumberland County Commission for Women, the Simpson Seed Library (SSL) was built around a converted card catalog turned seed lending repository that allowed patrons to “check out a packet of seeds, then grow fruits/vegetables, harvest the new seeds from the biggest and best, and return those seeds so the library can lend them out to others” according to NPR. (Source) The intent of the SSL was to help build up the local community by assisting people growing their own food but it was shut down by the Boss Hoggs at the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture who said the library could be used as by Al-Qaeda for purposes of spreading “agri-terrorism”:

That a community seed library could be shut down by the government for fostering “agri-terrorism” is hard to believe but not totally out of line with the sort of experiences many Taurus/Aquarians. Raven Kaldera says Taurus/Aquarius is the pairing of “The Heretic” who will eventually come face to face with such injustices:

The word heretic comes from a Greek root meaning free choice. In order of have free choice, one must paradoxically be able to give up anything or the choice isn’t real. The path of the Heretic is to bring his truth to the people he values, to be rejected, and to find the strength to walk away. There is always another group, another family of like minds, another place to call home . . . and if there isn’t, there is the strength to be alone with one’s convictions. (Source)

To illustrate: Thomas Drake is a Taurus Sun, Aquarius Moon. (Chart) He was a senior executive at the National Security Agency in 2005 when he attempted to blow the whistle on severe illegalities surrounding the NSA mass surveillance programs. For his efforts he was subjected to criminal prosecution and threatened with 35 years in prison. Fellow NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has said that Drake’s efforts inspired him to leak a treasure trove of NSA documents to journalist Glenn Greenwald in June 2013.

Taurus is the sign of agriculture while Aquarius Moons are emotionally in tune with outcasts and outsiders. The combination is thus something of the “Black Sheep” of the zodiac. That phrase has historically been a perjorative term but in a world that is on the cusp of total tyranny we could certainly use a few more “Black Sheep” like Thomas Drake and the Simpson Seed Library, ones willing to traffic in the maverick moonshine that is community supported agriculture or the high tech hash that is evidence of high level criminality.
