The chart's final dispositor (the planet upon which all depends) is dualistic Mercury which represents such things as commerce, trade, communications, messages, speeches, & more...Mercury resides at '28Gemini' a degree of Bankruptcy in the Sabian Symbols.
Check out this ancient post of mine from 2007, if you prefer, for it contains a paragraph from Gore Vidal's The Decline and Fall of the American Empire in which Mr. Vidal asserts that Henry Adams had figured out that America has "...a single system, and in that system the only question is the price at which the proletariat is to be bought and sold the bread and circuses."
Also involved in my Jupiter-Saturn article is what I believe are the most comprehensive definitions of such minor bodies (however theoretical or 'Uranian' as they may be) as: SIGMA, Nemesis, and Cupido.
So with our current econo-crisis~financial collapse (which I continue to assert is manufactured by one-world-government types) we may wish to consider the hook-up of our solar system's two societal planets which relate to financial cycles (due to their basic principles mentioned above: expansion vs restriction) as being apt for today's pay-off for the mega-wealthy, monarchy-adoring banking class - to ascertain whether their meeting of May 28, 2000 (when the cosmic clock began running on another of Jupiter-Saturn's 20-year cycles) has merit worthy of your attention.
One of the 'clues' Astrology gives into an astrological window of understanding is the word picture, or Sabian Symbol, for their Great Conjunction at '23 Taurus'.
Taurus is one of the money signs with a shadow side that attempts to hide gold-loving King Midas' greed while practicing Taurus the Bull's stubborn intolerance and prejudice such as seen with the elite class' contempt for the poor whom they imagine to be beneath them.
And Taurus, a practical Earth sign, likes to get things done in the manifest world. Ruled by Venus, a planet retrograde in Aries as I type, Taurean energy must be sparking this post, a self-inflicted replay from 2007's financial concerns! (My natal North Node is in Taurus, but no natal planets - in my Secondary Progressions, Moon is near mid-Taurus in natal 9th house and in Secondary 7th house.)
'23Tau'..."A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Gems"...
positive: a happy gift for shaping all vision to larger dimensions and directing all aspiration to more than trivial ends;
negative/unconscious/shadow side: a greediness which betrays the soul with trifles.
(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Dr. Marc Edmund Jones.)
Yes, 2008 saw the world's high-fallutin' social tinkerers and chaos-creators move their plans into "larger dimensions" all right, and I suppose their pocket-lining (USA's natal Jupiter degree of 1776:
'6 Cancer'..."Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests") must be nearing completion - because anything of real value has now been heisted and spirited away to certain lairs while the US Treasury's printing presses have orders to churn out stacks and stacks of worthless paper for the masses to crave.
