Merely a Lull in 'A Furious Storm'?

Is President Obama's rosy glow of an early economic upswing for real?

Or is it merely a lull in the eye of the financial hurricane?

Opposite America's natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx is an Illumination Point, an unconscious point that may be worth considering in this financial crisis. And since Pluto is Rx in our nation's natal chart (July 4, 1776), I'm using the 'rounding down' method.

Each degree is linked to what's come before and what degree's symbol comes after - a process of evolution, so more than one degree may be looked at for information, including those degrees that square, trine, etc, the point/degree you're considering. The Symbols are often used in rectification work, for some paint such an accurate picture that they bring a chart into precise focus (when an exact time isn't known, for horoscope calculations hinge upon knowing the hour/minute/second of a person's, entity's, or event's moment of beginning.)

In the case of the current financial crisis, I am inspired today by the archetypal use in current news stories and presidential statements of the word, storm, and people's loss of their homes all across America, no matter the cause. Loss of employment seems the most prevalent cause to me for mortgage payments depend upon having adequate income. Duh.

Yet even wildfire evacuations apply, especially if it's you and yours who suddenly have no pillows for your heads tonight.

And of course, there's Pluto's connection to The Underworld, including crime syndication; plus, he's also the Dragon Guarding the Treasure, the spy, assassin, and saboteur. Our country has been saboteured, don't you think? But is America down for the final count?

As evidenced in Astrology by Pluto's laborious traversal of the early degrees of structured Capricorn in opposition to America's natal planets in Cancer - Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and later on, Mercury - Pluto's 'secret hand' guise is guiding the financial show as 'he' heads toward our nation's eventual Pluto Return. Are we witnessing US leaders and foreign investors in conflict with one another - or in partnership working against We-The-People?

These questions are part of the reasons I keep grousing that secret manipulators engineered 2008's econo-crash which only crescendoed was a long time coming, due to the measured slowness and stealth of Pluto, who forever transforms...

A Little Illumination of US Pluto:

'27 Cancer'..."A Furious Storm Rages Through a Residential Canyon" = INTENSIFICATION...a pyramiding reality on the side of external circumstances, or of violence and terror as divine in their capacity for uplifting man out of his aplomb and demanding some manifestation of his inner ideals and enduring values.

Here is indomitable integrity of everything to be taken as of consequence in its own right, shown in the energy with which it preserves itself. Nature ever dramatizes man's unleashed powers, or his ability to rise in supremacy over each momentary crisis.

positive expression: an enlistment of every resource in life for a heightened expression of self;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: fatuous enjoyment of turmoil.

(My italics for 'pyramiding reality' as in 'pyramid of power' and Ponzi schemes; Symbol from SolarFire software; analysis from The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones. See sidebar for book in Amazon Slideshow.)

"Rise in supremacy"? But didn't America do that already? Then I'm guessing that the goal of world financial collapse is just that - to delete American supremacy from the planet's files.

And you thought we were bad.

Merely a Lull in "A Furious Storm?"
1. When is the US Pluto return?
2. Is this an economical or financial storm?
3. When do I sell my home, refinance it, sell company stock, buy stock,
all those financial decisions?
4. If it is a financial disaster we are witnessing how is that different from an economic one?
5. Is Obama's healthcare plan a way to restructure or dissolve Medicare and computerize and DNAize the undesirables out of our economy - Sibeleus says health care for all is not the primary goal of the current plan.
6. Truth is portable, not fact based, because facts can be twisted. So is truth no longer truth? My truth and someone else's truth may be severely at odds.
7. Basic premise of help for all may translate to help for none.
It is all backwards now. Is that part of the transformative change?
A new truth? A new reality?

Is the new truth more supportive of our shared reality or the eye opener we need for the next view of reality that we can agree upon?

I find your path to the answers to these questions provocative and linked to a higher truth, where we may be headed.

Jude, Your writing is inspired by the clear vessel that you are, no doubt. Keep up the good work, and if you have any answers for my earthly dilemmas, so much the better.

Thanks, DD, you always seem to know when i'm flagging here...i appreciate your remarks and answers to your questions about earthly dilemmas are within you (esp since you're the only one who really knows your situation.)

"Clear vessel"? i wish! Much Kassandra-ing goes on around me yet it hasn't made me doubt my insights but despair that too few care where the higher truth leads, much less how to stay on its trail!

And i constantly struggle with propagandistic influences, too - it's all around us. If the stank
could be totally cleaned they
would be little to blog about, wouldn't there? i do grow weary with grousing though, sigh. ;p

Hope your week is going well, Miss D!

And thanks for reading the buzzing of this fretting gnat, Jude

Donna, here are the dates of the 'three-fer' - the US Pluto Return of 2022, using the Sibly chart, so another natal chart would change the dates slightly:

US n Pluto 27Cap33 Rx..Return 2022:

1. Feb 20 (awareness and denial)
2. July 11 Rx (acceptance)
3. Dec 28 (resolution and release)

This Return represents a whole can of worms that i hope to write about asap but will have to be 'up for' a plutonic discussion when i do. jc

So I'll be 75 when the transit reaches its climax. I'm sure these leading up to it will be filled with confusion, rearranging the deck chairs and lots of misinformation. I listened to Madeleine Albright in Aspen yesterday at a summit on the future of journalism thinking, all these folks are interested in one thing, how to make money sharing the truth. Sad day. Business model versus getting out the work. Harnessing the bloggers, the hyperlocal information systems offered freely on the internet. Major news organizations were represented and leadership is lacking! IMHO.
They mostly try to dress up in fancy phrases the desire to financialize the new movement of information.

Wouldn't it be amazing if all the news in the future comes through filters of local opinion, high-minded spirits and anti-profit marginists.

Labels really haven't been invented that encapsulate this direction. And I'm not hearing much from those being held knowledgeable.

When Madeleine Albright says she needs to the read the Washington Times to get her blood boiling, then the Washington Post, then The New York Times, then the Wall Street Journal and then the Financial Times every morning to get a grasp on the real news, something is broken. (Or maybe working, who knows?)
