Kissinger’s Secret China Trip (July 9, 1971)
Oh, now it makes sense: the 50th anniversary of Kissinger’s secret trip to China was two days ago. But, being Canadian, this wasn’t on my radar screen, then, and still isn’t, now.
The plane touched down at Beijing’s Capital Airport at midday on July 9 and was met by General Yè Jiànyīng 叶剑英. Over the course of 48 hours, the two sides discussed the Soviet Union and the war in Vietnam, but most crucially for Nixon’s planned visit to go forward, the American side affirmed that it “supported neither two Chinas, nor one China — one Taiwan, nor an independent Taiwan.”SupChina
Originally, I was going to label this chart “Kissinger’s China Secret” but opted for the more conventional “Kissinger’s Secret China” trip. You can see where I’m going with this, can’t you?
The Uranus/Ascendant conjunction in Libra is a symbol of this lightning quick trip. But the Pluto in Virgo in the 12th House (of secrets) is undermining the whole emterprise. Perhaps the inconjunct involving Venus and Neptune will clear matters up, a little (but I doubt it).

This aspect means that your attitudes about love and affection are very idealistic, as will become clearer later in life. Also it can be a sign of creative artistic ability if there are other indications of creativity in your chart. And, of course, you must begin the appropriate training while you are young.
This aspect will work out with the fewest problems if you get a great deal of emotional support from your parents and other loved ones. You are willing to serve, help and assist those you love, but you may honestly feel that you don’t deserve to be loved unless you are forced to serve your loved one in some way. This is because you feel that loving someone requires you to make sacrifices and to deny your own needs and that love may not necessarily make you feel good and warm. While you are young, this attitude is likely to show up only as a feeling of unworthiness and shyness toward others, especially those who seem to like you. When you are older, you may have severe problems in love relationships, because you feel that you are only good enough for society’s losers, people who badly need help or have severe emotional problems. Or you may find someone who seems to be perfect, who will help you out of your problems, but later turns out to be a disappointment. You must lean to take a clear, objective view of the people you are attracted to and to realize that you deserve a positive love relationship as much as the other person does, for you are as worthwhile as anyone.
(Does anyone else think this describes China’s dilemma with its relationship to the USA?)
And the final part of an answer:
PS: Anytime you get Jewish sec. state, it’s going to be “everything for Israel, whatever the cost”. Anytime you get East European sec. state, it’s going to be “crush Russia, whatever the cost”. LOL! It’s funny that as a country becomes more “imperial”, the “national interest” actually disappears, and the more it becomes “how many OTHER PEOPLE’S (i.e., other Americans’) lives and money am I willing to spend to get what I want”. You see the same thing with ancient Rome. Patricians → scholars → bureaucrats → Mafia Dons.Robert Daverman
That post script is quite telling, isn’t it? I’ve been comparing the United States with Rome for so long now that it seems ‘second nature’ to me (“like breathing out, and breathing in” from My Fair Lady.) American interests are gradually being undermined by foreign interference. It won’t be too much longer before the whole country implodes upon itself, and then China will be the One to take over everything. And, think about this, it has only taken 50 years from the start.
