Through all the economic hoopla in the news you've heard by now of Bank Transfer Day which crescendos this Saturday, November 5, 2011.
Any day is a good day to leave a Big Bank and open a Credit Union Bank account which is what this blogger did about three years ago. Have I looked back? You know I haven't! It gave me a great sense of relief to be out of the clutches.
Yet what may be the ultimate result of millions of Americans transferring their financial accounts from Big to smaller financial organizations remains to be seen particularly for those whose home mortgages must necessarily remain hostage to Big Banks and their corrupt practices.
Best case scenario is that hopefully, by using credit union banks, we won't have to fret over drug money laundering as with Big Banks, and perhaps corporate banking 'special interests' will lose some of their thumb-on-scales clout with the *pocket-lining politicians of Capitol Hill.
Should we hold our breaths?

Astrology peeks at the G-20 Cannes Summit Nov 3 - 4, 2011
November 3, 2011 begins with Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Aquarius (Water-Air = steam.) The Moon reaches 00Pis00 (and wounded Chiron 00Pis40 Rx, conjunct America's Pre-Natal Eclipse degree of 00Pis33) on November 4th, the summit's second day, at 8:18 am CET (Cannes, FR) so the tone of the meeting will change to Sun Sco/Moon Pisc, a Water-Water combination.
Here are a few astro-potentials for November 3 and 4, 2011:
Sun Sco/Moon AQ: depression and cynicism undermines events; impossibly high goals are set which assures frustration; may not give others a fair chance; intense determination; blows hot'n'cold; freedom-closeness issues.
Images for Integration: A hovering hawk surveys the world, at one with nature...An exotic moth emerges from its chrysalis, in perfect form, a specimen of the sublimity of nature's intelligence.
Nov 4, 2011:
Sun Sco/Moon Pisc: shrewd strategies; passion v compassion; persuasive; lack of objectivity; prone to subterfuge; intense emotions, aloof exterior; yearning for union; able to 'come back fighting'.
Images for Integration: Long John Silver, with ruthless charm, becomes a successful entrepreneur...Madame Curie works for the Red Cross whilst dedicating herself to solving the mysteries of radioactivity.
Sun Sco/Moon AQ is the natal Sun/Moon blend of Albert Camus, Vivian Leigh, Voltaire, Dylan Thomas, and economist Jean Monnet, architect of the European Union!
Sun Sco/Moon Pisc is the natal blend of Marie Curie (obviously--and note that 'Red Cross' is not just a medical reference but a shout-out to the 'Rosy Cross' of the Rosicrucians), Robert Louis Stevenson, Bela Lugosi, Grace Keely, Charles Manson, Martin Scorsese, Indira Gandhi, Pat Buchanan, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
During both days of the G20 Cannes Summit 2011, the transiting midpoint picture still in force and relating to finances, is the Jupiter/Neptune (speculators, inflation, fraud) pointing to radical Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries, a real v imaginary/coming down to earth with a bump influence.
And with tr Mars opposing tr Neptune Rx now, I don't see how honesty or long term benefits can prevail at or from G-20 Summit 2011. A Mars/Neptune opposition brings in subtle and difficult-to-control desires, secretive or underhanded actions, unrealistic visions and goals, aroused suspicions--and unholy alliances.
Not that honesty is ever an aim of a G-20 Summit.
*US natal Jupiter @ '6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests" which pretty much sums up the founders and the major corporation they set up as 'America'.
