Have you ever noticed the horoscope for the ceremony of our very first presidential oath-taking on a Wall Street balcony at Federal Hall (26 Wall Street) just across from the NYSE building in lower Manhattan, NYC?
Among other factors, the horoscope shows a YOD pattern (special task; crossroads; turning point; crisis; paradox) on April 30, 1789 at 12:45 pm LMT which is the moment our then-Freemason-in-Chief of some wide repute, George Washington, elected to take the very first US Presidential Oath of Office.
And the same site, Wall Street's Federal Hall, is the place where the First Amendment was created and ratified, 222 years ago this very week. Here it is now:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
So, gathering their filly skirts about them, you'll find that the official website of Federal Hall now opens with a Notice saying that for the 'duration' of the Occupy Wall Street protests, the *front door of the site where President George Washington took the first-ever oath of office will be barricaded...yes, barricaded against The People.
It is within the nature of Temples to be defended. Of course.
Yet the Notice carries such an 18th century vibe, even for the chronically self-protective, I do declare! (My spats and top hat are at the cleaners, if you're wondering.) Guess the authorities are cooperating with the well-heeled of Wall Street in case something valuable needs guarding against the younger generation.
So if we look to Sabian Symbols for a descriptive word picture concerning the Occupy Wall Street presence of 2011 as they issue from the 1789 brouhaha that started the whole shebang and a branch of government--with a pageant on display upon a Wall Street balcony since our nation's capitol was then situated at Federal Hall NYC--therefore, we may wish to snoop using the one-degree-for-a-year method of looking at outcomes bwo evolutionary Symbols.
And because Astrology describes universal energy flowing in an AC-DC fashion--one of the following signifies on some level the protesters, the other the self-exalted swelled-heads whom the marchers and chanters wish to reach with a message of we-the-people's grievances against them and against the sorry ways in which American society has been run the last decade or so. We're so scammed.
(Time for a shout-out to Pres. Bill Clinton's 'free' trade frenzy that really got the outsourcing of US workers' jobs rockin' back in the 1990s. If millions more Americans had jobs that paid at the least a living wage, most of our financial issues would go poof!)
But wage setting is merely a goalpost the power elite keep moving at their will or fancy, but always to our detriment, after they've had The Creatives drape gauzy veils of political assurances over it to disguise their true intent. Don't look too closely!
Math Produces Symbol: **12 Scorpio
2011 - 1789 = 222 (7 signs = 210 + 12 degrees = 222 = 12 Scorpio) = "An Embassy Ball"...Keyword: DISPLAY; positive expression: an absolute stability of self as contribution to group integrity; negative (unconscious/shadow side): a smug demand for special privilege.
Like barricading Federal Hall against the rambling natives?

*An instruction for using a side door is listed on the website. Which reminds me of self-protective Cancer, sign of The Crab, that will scuttle sideways (or through side doors) in order to avoid inconvenient (and possibly superior) challenges to its authority.
**Interestingly, Nicholas deVore gives '12Sco' as a degree of business in his Encyclopedia of Astrology (1947; Philosophical Library, New York.)
