Jan 21/22, 2011: Public Radio's MarketPlace has an interesting interview you may wish to read or listen to which concerns the fact that it isn't level of income alone which makes a person admit that he or she is "rich." It's just as much a matter of perception: the perception of what it means to be rich that affects our ideas about wealth and taxes, and our self-images of where we are on the wealth ladder so skewed toward the benefit of the upper .01%.
Say, for the first time in months, I've been snooping around the MarketPlace website this morning while listening to the program on the radio (in northeast Georgia, that's Saturdays @11:00 am est) and the site has blog action in place on various money-related, economy-related, and culture-related topics.
Ah, that good old disenfranchising Pluto/Chiron midpoint of the Plutocracy pair of celestial bodies; one associated with the death archetype (Pluto), the other with wounding, healing, and blind spots (Chiron), and both deeply transformative on their own levels when used in horoscopic work.
Class Warfare is Pluto/Chiron's favorite chess game so if you feel your dreams have been checkmated and thoroughly trounced recently, the primal violence and pillaging tendencies of Pluto/Chiron's over-arching plan for complete take-over may be the basic reason why.
And as you know, 00AQ+ is the position of the Sun near noon est each year that the US holds a public Inauguration ceremony to swear in a new president in Washington DC. And for Barack Obama, orating announcer Mercury was in that degree as well and retrograde.
But let's not discuss again Inaugural 2009 Mercury's condition with its indications of brilliant communications, deals, negotiations, and speeches - and possibly of bills that may be reviewed, re-voted on, and repealed.
Instead, let's talk about the fact that the transiting midpoint of Pluto/Chiron, which was at Midheaven in the Inauguration 2009 chart (the Goal/Aspiration Point), has been squelching and directing our Inaugural Sun 00AQ+ (the president) for months now, off and on. So has Neptune/Pluto (the Robber Barons)!
Therefore, President Obama's continued habit of surrounding himself and populating the White House with such Pluto/Chiron actors from the bubble-wrapped-from-all-harm investment world of Wall Street (London, Brussels, Beijing) may be shown as Pluto/Chiron = the President of the United States, for it's time for the chips to be called in and the offer that can't be refused to be enforced.
As in, 'the big picture demands a certain course of action; little option to do otherwise' (*Uranus/Neptune = Pluto; Noel Tyl.)
So with transiting Pluto (power, manipulation, wealth-hoarding, violence, atomic/nuclear power, death, destruction, transformation, assassins and spies) now approaching the Ic (7Cap04, End of the Matter; The Drain; The Root) of the Atomic Bomb Drop on Tokyo, Japan (Aug 6, 1945 9:15 am JST; historical record) chart, let's pray that the global power elite aren't planning a nasty surprise to mark the much-touted end of 2012.
Other transits and progressions will offset and counterbalance this tendency, of course, and I hope such milder energies prevail over the destructive agenda of god of Hades and the Underworld, Pluto (aka, The Pope, The Dragon, and representing the Merovingian bloodlines allegedly coursing through the reptilian veins of super wealthy global elites who want all the Earth's resources for themselves and their hatchlings. Forget you.)
Do I believe that course men will end the planet with nuclear bombs? Nope. I believe that God will call an end to our planet's madness. But the Pluto/Chiron-ers and other arrogant win-at-any-cost types can certainly cause lots of damage and misery in between.
*Uranus/Neptune is the planetary pair of The Enlightenment and Illumination and together are an astrological signature for the New World Order/Illuminati crowd. Their third and final Great Conjunction of Oct 1993 marked a new, modern phase of the NWO with its key Sabian Symbol: '18Cap' = POLITICAL POWER...click to read more.
Transit Pluto to Atomic Bomb/Tokyo/1945 chart's Ic 7Cap04:
1. Feb 27, 2011
2. May 22, 2011 Rx
3. Dec 25, 2911
4. Aug 28, 2012 Rx
5. Oct 9, 2012
Fives 'hits' stretches out the transit's effects from prior to Feb 2011 all the way to Oct 2012 and beyond (until tr Pluto passes appr 12Cap04.) These days, a lot can go wrong - and right - during a one-year-seven-month period, and we'll be hearing more and more propaganda in the media on nuclear topics as Time limps and careens on.
