Take the following video information as you may. The secretive "Work of God" Opus Dei group or sect has been gaining attention since Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code was published. Here are more details on those who, some say, control the Vatican:
As you heard announced today, Pope Benedict XVI will resign as head of the Catholic Church on February 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm Rome Time.
Poor health (heart and arthritis) is cited for his step-down, the first Pope to do so in 719 years. Not being of the Catholic persuasion, one of my interests concerning the nation-state, Vatican City, is the Vatican Bank which is said to be the banking arm and major money-launderer of the international banking cartel now working to ruin the world, aka, The Syndicate, or, The Octopus. A tiresome and crooked bunch, the popes of which have been calling for a "new world economic order" for years. Out loud.
Well, I'd like to type more on such topics but my allergies are acting up rather badly on this rainy day so I'll close with brief astro-notes that on February 28, 2013, Venus and Neptune, the 'weak or enlarged glands' (Ebertin) pair of planets that I tend to associate with the Catholic Church/Vatican (goddess worship), conjoin upon Royal Star Fomalhaut @ '3Pisces+'.
And in his book The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac, Adriano Carelli gives an interesting symbol for '3Pis' which may apply:
"Through Jupiter Pistor's inspiration, the Romans, beleaguered on the capitol, throw white leaves to the besieging Gauls." Carelli also mentions that this is the point of equidistance (Sun-Moon midpoint) in the natal chart of the Third Reich.
Astrologically, Fomalhaut's influences may include: congenital defects or inherited illness; magic; fame through the occult; infamy; karma; undesirable associates; may commit or suffer crime; legal problems. (Horary Astrology Plain & Simple, Anthony Louis), and/or, undermining, idealism, spirituality (Rigor.) Venus-Neptune has a similar vibe of mysticism which is shared by Fomalhaut.
For further reading--well, there are so many articles concerning Vatican Bank scandals, I hardly know where to start.
