Since creating this blog on October 17, 2005 I have groused my frustration many times concerning the high-handed arrogance of, and the condescension shown toward the common good by, the power elite or 'ruling class' which is clearly represented in America by the House of Rockefeller among others (ex: House of Morgan)--and in Europe by its related House of Rothschild.
Well, inspired by the retirement announcement on Friday of West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller (b. June 18, 1937), who will not seek re-election in 2014, the excellent blog The Oligarch Kings has published a report on the Rockefeller family tree with details on which modern politicians are related to the Rockefellers and to other of our nation's oligarchical plutocrat families, past and present.
Check out the article, if you wish:Rockefeller: Twight of the Oligarchs?
Astrologically, I remind myself of the July 4, 1776 condition of powerful wealth-collector Pluto Rx @27Cap33--out-of-bounds of the Earthly plane (hidden as manipulative Mr. Invisible prefers to be) and posited in our nation's 2nd house of the National Treasury ('Sibly' natal chart for 5:10 pm LMT)...giving us an early portrait of the American financial oligarchy.
Of course, 'OOBs' means that secretive, stealthy Pluto was not actually on-hand to interact with the other players in July 1776 (he wasn't in the room, you might say) yet powerful Pluto's association with The Unconscious made and makes his rule all the stronger especially because he was in Saturn-ruled Capricorn (sign of government, law, business) and Saturn signifies control and the status quo.
