      Hi Mark -

      Here's the Baten Kaitos section of my new Fixed Stars Report
      Writer (programmed by Esoteric Technologies, the Solar Fire
      people:

      Baten Kaitos is Zeta Ceti in the belly of Cetus, the
      Sea-Monster, a star that that is accompanied in these
      celestial longitudes by Delta, Delta Andromedae in the
      breast of Andromeda, the Chained Woman, Zeta Andromedae in
      her chained left arm, and 20 Cephei in the head of Cepheus,
      the King. In the lunar mansions of ancient China, Delta was
      a determinant star of the lunar mansion Koui, The Sandal,
      Legs Astride, or The Pig (also called The Great General or
      General with the Long Muzzle because a wild boar or pig
      uprooted the earth like a fierce warrior); Koui ruled shoes,
      planting, harvesting, streams, marshes, harmful insects; and
      Imperial Arsenal, as well as metal, weapons, war, and
      defense against brigands. In Arabia it was part of the lunar
      mansion Batn al-Hut, Fish’s Belly (also called Risha, rope)

      Cepheus, a solitary, scholarly, cultured monarch, brings
      forth Renaissance types with a great range of interests and
      abilities. You are intensely original, insatiably curious,
      fascinated by science, technology, inventions, and
      particularly interested in practical applications of your
      skills. Depth, hard work, renunciation, a natural
      predeliction for solitude and study and an inner sense of
      form and structure combine with powerful emotional
      expression, producing in you the possibility for excellence
      in literature and the arts. These stars often bring forth
      outstanding teachers, inventors, artists, musicians and
      poets (some combine science and/or religion with art). You
      have the potential to be brilliant, inventive, creative,
      with the ability to inspire others, yet the Sea-Monster’s
      brooding influence may bring in a deep insecurity and
      alienation, even a paranoid, hypersensitive, self-limiting
      introspection, which in some is expressed as blunt, abrasive
      selfishness, dishonesty and subterfuge to "keep the world at
      bay." Marked by chained Andromeda, prone to day-dreaming and
      sexual fantasizing, you may feel trapped and humiliated by
      your situation in life, yet you are aware that you have put
      yourself in that position, and you have the ability to work
      beyond any limitations - (under these stars, even those born
      in poverty usually manage to educate themselves). The fire
      of tropical Aries bestows an instinct to test the edges -
      there is a danger that you may overreach yourself, possibly
      undergoing enforced emigration, compulsory change,
      entrapment, even imprisonment. A few suffer disfigurement
      and/or physical or mental afflictions. Melancholy,
      death-fearing, some of these even become obsessed with the
      monstrous (Cetus!). At the same time you have a strong
      impulse to devotion, especially of a religious nature, and
      you relate strongly to folklore, myths, and the occult.
      Baten Kaitos is one of the most frequently found star
      involved in shipwrecks, and you may at some time find
      yourself left "high and dry," broken on the rocks of life,
      yet this is an area of great breakthroughs and
      transformations, and after you pull through you have much to
      offer from the depths of your experiences, ending up with a
      strong sense of personal destiny and the God within. There
      are issues here of whether to wage war or make peace,
      selfishness versus selflessness, as well as Andromeda’s
      themes of imprisonment versus liberty, and father-daughter
      issues (King Cepheus was Andromeda’s father). Here the
      dangerous, brooding Sea-Monster is overcome by King Cepheus'
      intelligence and Andromeda's devotion and patience under
      pressure. Possible physical and/or psychological
      manifestations: hearing problems, wounds, birth defects,
      possible depression and/or chronic ill-health

      * Sun aligned with this Starset

      The Sun represents dignity, authority, courage,
      self-confidence, self-assertion, the essential life force
      and central core of being, as well as health and physical
      vitality. In your horoscope, the Sun is the channel through
      which you receive, experience and express the energies of
      these stars.

      Examples of the Sun here include 19th-century US Commodore
      Matthew Calbraith Perry, a “staunch expansionist,”
      supervisor of the construction of, and commander of, the 1st
      naval steamship, commander of the Gulf squadron in Mexican
      War, and commander of the 1853-4 expedition that (forcibly)
      established US relations with Japan, Sen J William Fulbright
      of Arkansas, sponsor of international scholarships, Charles
      Fourier, 18th-19th-century social reformer and utopian,
      William Booth, 19th-century English evangelical preacher,
      founder of the Salvation Army (started out penniless, almost
      friendless; often attacked, beaten, "he had one fixed idea -
      to save the world"), WWI Gen Erich von Ludendorff, (austere,
      humorless, reactionary, convinced he could have won the war
      but was “betrayed”), Leon Blum, Premier of France, Raphael
      of Urbino, 15th-16th-century artist, Eadweard Muybridge
      (Edward Muggeridge), 19th-century experimental photographer
      known for his studies of human and animal movement
      (including a series of photographs that proved for the 1st
      time that during its stride a trotting horse at one point
      has all four feet off the ground), Elias Lonnrot,
      19th-century physician, folklorist and philologist who
      created the Finnish national epic Kalavala from ballads and
      lyric poems of oral tradition, A E (G W Russell), poet and
      mystic, Charles Baudelaire, 19th-century poet and critic,
      William Wordsworth, 18th-19th century poet, known for his
      nature poems and sonnets, Isambard Kingdom Brunel,
      19th-century tunnel rail and bridge builder, designer of the
      1st transatlantic steamer: “the greatest engineer of his
      age” (workaholic, often worked alongside his men; suffered
      severe injuries), Charles P Steinmetz, mathematician,
      electrical engineer, and inventor (hunchback), Omar Sharif,
      Chuck Connors, actors, Paul Robeson, brilliant
      African-American singer and actor (son of an escaped slave –
      Andromeda was “The Chained Woman”) (persecuted and
      blacklisted for his socialist beliefs), Ann Miller, tap
      dancer, Charles Burney, 18th-century organist, composer and
      music historian, Arthur Murray, ballroom dance instructor
      and dance school entrepreneur, June and Jennifer Gibbons,
      “The Silent Twins," bright but schizophrenic, who only
      communicated with each other in rapid incomprehensible
      speech (institutionalized in their teens), Anton LaVey,

        There's been some discussion on the Centaurs and
        Be-Urania lists about 2003 UB313 having something to
        do with feminism and human rights. This isn't a

        those who are trying to establish justice for women on
        this earth.

          Black museum of Japan’s war crimes
          Michael Sheridan, Tokyo

          THE keepers of the Yasukuni shrine, where rising sun flags stir in the summer breeze and towering gates salute the souls of fallen soldiers, have a new rival in the battle for Japan’s conscience.

          A group of Japanese women braved threats from right-wing extremists this weekend to open a museum exposing the crimes of the imperial Japanese army. Their aim is to force the public to face the facts about sexual slavery in the second world war.

          It is a politically loaded gesture, one week before Japan commemorates the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, which led to the announcement of the country’s unconditional surrender on August 15, 1945.

          “It’s the 60th anniversary and yet right now I see a movement to wipe out the memory of the war of aggression,” said Nishino Rumiko, the woman behind the project.

          “The failure to bring the Showa Emperor (Hirohito) to account for the war continues to haunt Japan today and it’s still a taboo,” she said.

          Her centre is small compared with the grandeur of Yasukuni, whose museum was recently renovated at great expense to present an impassioned and unrepentant view of all Japan’s wars since 1866.

          However, Rumiko, 53, hopes her exhibition will show the world that many Japanese understand the violent fury that has gripped China and South Korea in recent months about visits to the shrine by Junichiro Koizumi, the prime minister.

          “It’s natural they should be angry,” she said. “Our soldiers had contempt for people in colonial Korea and in the occupied countries.”

          One living witness has her fight for justice chronicled in the exhibit. She is 82-year-old Song Shin Do, a Korean who was trapped into sexual slavery in one of the notorious “comfort stations” provided for Japanese troops in China.

          “I was only 16,” Song recalled last week. “I was so shocked that I had no tears. I serviced Japanese soldiers. Sometimes there were 50 or 60 a day.”

          In a 10-year legal case in which she has demanded an official apology, Song testified that she saw one woman drink poison and another murdered for refusing to have sex with a soldier.

          “I had three babies,” she said in a bleak, flat tone. “All were boys. One was stillborn. The other two were left behind in China.” She never found her sons, who if they survived would now be in their sixties.

          The Supreme Court finally ruled against Song in 2003, but she said she would fight to the end of her days to force the Japanese state to utter the word hansei, which can be translated as reflect, repent or regret.

          Over the years Japanese politicians and Emperor Akihito, the son of Hirohito, have repeatedly offered apologies for the wars of the 1930s and 1940s. Japan has paid compensation and has just announced a project to clean up toxic waste left by infamous chemical weapons units in northeast China.

          However, a resurgence of conservative patriotism in Japan, centred on Yasukuni, has stoked the flames of national pride in China and Korea. Like Song, millions of people in those nations think that such veneration makes the apologies insincere.

          In the museum halls at Yasukuni, the word hansei is not conspicuous. The names of Hideki Tojo, the wartime premier hanged by the allies, together with 13 other war criminals are honoured in the Shinto shrine.

          Officials at the shrine declined to be interviewed. But it is easy to see why its version of history incenses the Chinese. This, for example, is what the museum says about the Nanking massacre of 1937, in which most historians agree at least 300,000 died: “General Matsui Iwane issued orders to observe military rules to the letter. The Japanese established a safety zone for Chinese civilians and made a special effort to protect historical and cultural sites. Inside the city, residents were once again able to live their lives in peace.”

          Matsui was executed after the war for his crimes.

          A video presentation prepares visitors, most of them Japanese, for elaborate displays that highlight foreign colonialism, present Japan as a liberator and glorify the sacrifices of kamikaze suicide pilots.

          The imperial army’s wars in China from 1931 to 1945, which claimed millions of lives, are described merely as “the China Incident”.

          Britain and Holland, it is explained, were the “main obstacles” to Japan’s rightful possession of oil and iron ore in Asia.

          President Franklin Roosevelt the display says, starved Japan of resources to provoke it into action and at a cabinet meeting on November 7, 1941 set in motion “the US plan to force Japan into the war”.

          It repeats a long-discredited claim, namely that the “Hull note” sent later that month by the American secretary of state was an ultimatum that destroyed the chance for peace. In fact Japanese records show the fleet had already sailed to attack Pearl Harbor before the note reached Tokyo.

          “Yasukuni is a crime,” said Professor Kenichi Asano, 56, of the Doshisha University in Kyoto, who was visiting the shrine last week.

          “The problem is that young people don’t learn the history and my generation wants to forget.”

          The introduction of revisionist textbooks that excuse the war has made matters worse.

          The women’s museum, situated inside a Christian institution in northwest Tokyo, seems a lonely gesture. Rumiko, who dedicated herself to the cause after raising a family, is under constant menace of attack.

          “I no longer live in my own home,” she said. “These threats are an attempt to repress freedom of speech — just like in the years before the war. They say that I’m an enemy of the Japanese state.”

                    Thanks, Martina.  By watching what's going on in various lists, we can certainly better observed the planetary energy.  Mars just got into Taurus and it is certainly not very happy there.

                      I've got the transiting Mars-Saturn square in my 12th
                      and 4th houses, respectively, with Mars conjoining the
                      East Point and squaring Rhadamanthus and Saturn vice
                      versa, and Mars squaring and Saturn opposing
                      Midheaven-Pandora.

                      Hard physical work is something I've been doing a lot
                      of lately...outdoors, in somewhat-hotter-than-usual
                      east Texas summer heat (high 90s Fahrenheit), with the
                      humidity typically close to dew point. Plus I've been
                      straightening out my house.

                        "The cause of this behaviour is believed to be a

                        caused by a rapid condensation of dust, resulting in
                        much of the star's light being blocked. The gradual
                        restoration to normal brightness results from the dust
                        being dispersed by radiation pressure."

                          From my book:

                          Baten Kaitos, a stormy star, is known for shipwrecks, "possibly with rescue:" these stars were transited at the Nov, 1274 New Moon when Khubilai Khan’s 900-ship fleet, invading Japan, was destroyed by a “Kamikaze” (“Divine Wind”) typhoon that forced China's ships out to sea: 200 sank, 13,500 troops perished, in July 1591 when four hurricanes in one month sank more than 100 ships in the Atlantic - most (88) were part of a Grand Fleet of Spanish treasure ships from the Indies; in 1707 when an English fleet, lost in dense fog and high winds, crashed into the Scilly Isles with a loss of 4 ships and 1,647 men (this disaster led Parliament to offer a prize of 20,000 for a solution to the problem of measuring longitude at sea, won by horologist John Harrison, born with Mercury here); at the 1898 Winter Solstice: ferocious hurricanes and gales swept the N Atlantic from Dec to March 1899, wreaking havoc with shipping; when Titanic sailed on her doomed maiden voyage in 1912: she hit an iceberg and sank (this was Uranus of passenger Ida Straus who refused to leave her husband and went down with him on the ship); in 1940 when a hastily-assembled flotilla of naval and small coastal craft, under heavy fire, rescued 338,226 trapped (Andromeda!) British and French troops at Dunkirk (several ships were lost), when Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space in 1961 (he landed safely by parachute-his vessel was designed to crash), when US nuclear submarine Thresher was lost on a trial dive with 129 crew in 1963; at the 1970 launch of the Apollo 13 moon mission: an oxygen tank exploded, crippling the mission; after a struggle and extraordinary ground support, the 3-man crew returned to Earth safely; in 1977 at the worst air disaster in history: two jumbo jets, in heavy fog, collided at Tenerife, killing 582, and at the launch of sailing ship “Pride of Baltimore,” later lost in a violent squall, at the 1985 Aries Ingress preceding the Rainbow Warrior sinking (sabotage), Achille Lauro highjacking and discovery of the wrecks of the Atocha and Titanic (it was also “the worst year in the history of commercial flight” with more than 1,600 killed in crashes), in 1986 when Black Sea passenger liner “Admiral Nakhimov,” rammed by a freighter, sank in 15 minutes with a loss of 398 (836 were saved). This was Mars of 16th-century anatomist Andreas Vesalius who died in a shipwreck, Saturn of British Gen'l Lord Kitchener (drowned when his ship hit a mine), the MC of Senator,VP and presidential candidate Albert Gore, "shipwrecked" when he won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote by an extremely narrow margin, an example of how this star may function on personal charts. Baten Kaitos is coming to a World Axis aspect of 22.5º to 0º Aries: the world's oceans are rising, "drowning" shorelines.

British and French troops at Dunkirk (several ships were lost), when Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space in 1961 (he landed safely by parachute-his vessel was designed to crash), when US nuclear submarine Thresher was lost on a trial dive with 129 crew in 1963; at the 1970 launch of the Apollo 13 moon mission: an oxygen tank exploded, crippling the mission; after a struggle and extraordinary ground support, the 3-man crew returned to Earth safely; in 1977 at the worst air disaster in history: two jumbo jets, in heavy fog, collided at Tenerife, killing 582, and at the launch of sailing ship “Pride of Baltimore,” later lost in a violent squall, at the 1985 Aries Ingress preceding the Rainbow Warrior sinking (sabotage), Achille Lauro highjacking and discovery of the wrecks of the Atocha and Titanic (it was also “the worst year in the history of commercial flight” with more than 1,600 killed in crashes), in 1986 when Black Sea passenger liner “Admiral Nakhimov,” rammed by a freighter, sank in 15 minutes with a loss of 398 (836 were saved). This was Mars of 16th-century anatomist Andreas Vesalius who died in a shipwreck, Saturn of British Gen'l Lord Kitchener (drowned when his ship hit a mine), the MC of Senator,VP and presidential candidate Albert Gore, "shipwrecked" when he won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote by an extremely narrow margin, an example of how this star may function on personal charts. Baten Kaitos is coming to a World Axis aspect of 22.5º to 0º Aries: the world's oceans are rising, "drowning" shorelines.

                              Earth 'not at risk' from collider
                              By Paul Rincon
                              Science reporter, BBC News

                              Our planet is not at risk from the world's most powerful particle physics
                              experiment, a report has concluded.

                              The document addresses fears that the Large Hadron Collider is so
                              energetic, it could have unforeseen consequences.

                              Critics are worried that mini-black holes made at the soon-to-open
                              facility on the French-Swiss border might threaten the Earth's very
                              existence.

                              But the report, issued the European Organization for Nuclear Research,
                              says there is "no conceivable danger".

                              The organization - known better by its French acronym, Cern - will operate
                              the collider underground in a 27km-long tunnel near Geneva.

                              This Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a powerful and complicated machine,
                              which will smash together protons at super-fast speeds in a bid to unlock
                              the secrets of the Universe.

                              Six "detectors" - individual experiments - will count, trace and analyse
                              the particles that emerge from the collisions.

                              Most physicists believe the risk of a cataclysm lies in the realms of
                              science fiction. But there have been fears about the possibility of a
                              mini-black hole - produced in the collider - swelling so that it gobbles
                              up the Earth.

                              Critics have previously raised concerns that the production of weird
                              hypothetical particles called strangelets in the LHC could trigger the
                              mass conversion of nuclei in ordinary atoms into more strange matter -
                              transforming the Earth into a hot, dead lump.

                              New particles

                              The lay language summary of the report, which has been written by Cern's
                              top theorists, states: "Over the past billions of years, nature has
                              already generated on Earth as many collisions as about a million LHC
                              experiments - and the planet still exists."

                              The report added: "There is no basis for any concerns about the
                              consequences of new particles or forms of matter that could possibly be
                              produced by the LHC."

                              The new document is an update of the analysis carried out in 2003 into the
                              safety of the collider by an independent team of scientists.

                              The authors of the latest report, including theoretical physicist John
                              Ellis, confirmed that black holes could be made by the collider. But they
                              said: "If microscopic black holes were to be singly produced by colliding
                              the quarks and gluons inside protons, they would also be able to decay
                              into the same types of particles that produced them."

                              The report added: "The expected lifetime [of a mini-black hole] would be
                              very short."

                              On the strangelet issue, the report says that these particles are even
                              less likely to be produced at the LHC than in the lower-energy
                              Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in New York, which has been
                              operating since 2000.

                              A previous battle over particle accelerator safety was fought over the US
                              machine.

                              'Fundamental question'

                              The scientific consensus appears to be on the side of Cern's theorists.

                              But in 2003, Dr Adrian Kent, a theoretical physicist at the University of
                              Cambridge, wrote a paper in which he argued that scientists had not
                              adequately calculated the risks of a "killer strangelet" catastrophe
                              scenario.

                              He also expressed concern that a fundamental question (how improbable does
                              a cataclysm have to be to warrant proceeding with an experiment?) had
                              never been seriously inspected.

                              The LHC was due to switch on in 26 November 2007. The start-up has been
                              postponed several times, however, and is currently scheduled for later
                              this summer.

                              The first delay was precipitated by an accident in March 2007 during
                              stress testing of one of the LHC's "quadrupole" magnets.

                              A statement carried on the Cern website from the US laboratory that
                              provided the magnet stated that the equipment had experienced a "failure"
                              when supporting structures "broke".

                              It later emerged that the magnet had exploded in the tunnel, close to one
                              of the LHC's most important detectors, prompting the the facility to be
                              evacuated.

                              In March, a complaint requesting an injunction against the LHC's switch-on
                              was filed before the United States District Court for the District of
                              Hawaii by seven plaintiffs.

                              One of the plaintiffs had previously attempted to bring a similar
                              injunction against the RHIC over safety concerns.
