A Sabian Symbol Makes the News: US Jupiter @ 6 Cancer: 7.10.11
by Jude Cowell
With the August 2, 2011 default deadline looming large, this morning's Meet The Press featured Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner laying out the argument once again--for Republicans, it is said. No doubt there's hope that Tea Partisans might listen in from behind the ideological door.
One long-range sort of theory that's come to the top of one barrel since Cantor nixed Boehner's Jupiter-laced 'big deal' with President Obama on the mess Washington and Wall Street got us into is a so-called "feathering in" method which I first heard mentioned this morning on The Chris Matthews Show by reporter Bob Woodward who was citing those who know about economic theory. (Watch!)
And this may be a dedicated link to today's MTP interview with Mr. Geithner in case you missed the programming...er, I mean, the program. If not, please search the site for it's something to check out if you missed it on TV (July 10, 2011.) So far, I'm not having much success playing their audio-videos except for the one with Sec. Geithner.
But Let's Talk about *Birdies
Now the "feathering in" concept may be interesting to anyone who uses the 360 Sabian Symbols available for the position on July 4, 1776 of America's Jupiter @ 5 Cancer 56. Rounding up the degree to '6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests", the deeper meaning of which I leave for you to discern in these financial matters.
Yet here I shall quote and paraphrase both Dane Rudhyar and Marc Edmund Jones in their explanations for '5' and '6' Cancer since the actual degree of a planet (here, '5Can') applies as well because all flows together and each degree is a part or phase of life's evolutionary process as symbolized by the circle.
The previous degree also represents an unconscious element still of influence just as the next degree represents the next step in development. In this case, US natal Jupiter's '5Can' word picture well describes what's going on in Washington DC in the political theater to which we-the-people are being 'treated'.
(Rudhyar = DR; Jones = MEJ.)
US natal Jupiter, planet of expansion, money, largess, generosity, corporations, and any number of social archetypes such as priest, guru, shaman, banker, financier, professor, attorney, or general, has made a surreptitious "feathering in" cameo in the economic considerations and news of the day.
Both Rudhyar and Jones give the same word pictures but there are nuances within their explanations. First up is '5Can' from DR as we think of the US debt-ceiling-raise tussle (which first off should be presented as a Clean Bill, asserts this American) and a possible first-ever default on debt by the current US government - see what you think, but I'll tell you that the first one reminds me most closely of the corporate-backed Tea Partisans and GOPers in Congress about to drive America off the financial precipice for the sake of some freakish Zionist Utopian ideology from Hades.
But maybe that's just me talkin'...Buckle Up!
'5Can' = "At a Railroad Crossing, An Automobile Is Wrecked By a Train"...
"Keynote: The tragic results which are likely to occur when the individual's will pits itself carelessly against the power of the collective will of society."
This is "an early stage of the new process...all such individual and relatively anarchistic or law-defying attempts are bound to fail. The driver may live but the car will be wrecked."
Yet "--most of the time man learns his lessons through relatively destructive experiences--the via negativa of the mystic, or even the strange occult concept expounded in some sects of 'salvation through sin'. One may speak here more generally of KARMIC READJUSTMENT."
(MEJ) '5Can' = "DISPERSION...
positive expression: a special genius for a creative reorganization of all experience;
negative/**unconscious/shadow side: an insensitive recklessness."
See what I mean about '5Can'? Here's the next symbol for US natal Jupiter:
(DR) '6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests"...
"Keynote: An instinctual dedication of self to new forms of life.
'Birds' are spiritual forces "placed within a social context...we see here the beginning of a process; action is definitely oriented toward the future. A new wave of life is starting and a concrete--and no longer symbolical--preparation is made for it. At a social level--we can speak of the pioneering efforts dedicated to the building of a new culture, new institutions."
(That seems to be what the ruling class and their backers, the power elite, have in their global-dominating minds for everyone no matter what we-the-people want for our families and our nation.)
(MEJ) '6Can' = METICULOUSNESS...
pos: high intelligence and skill in enlisting the potentials of experience for the service of self;
neg/unconscious/shadow side: unnecessary concern over everyday security.
"Unnecessary concern"? On one level I can say that since we couldn't trust the operatives of Washington DC in 2008 after they'd spent years aiding and abetting Wall Street criminality, then rrrushed back to DC to 'save the economy'--so how easy is it to trust them and the dramatic script they present to us now?
Nothing in Politics is an accident!
Check out the Rudhyar Audio Archives and perhaps the natal horoscope of Marc Edmund Jones, as you wish.
*Interesting that the symbol for US natal Pluto (27Cap33 Rx), '28Cap' = "A Large Aviary." You may agree with me that the plutonian death star 'The Pentagon' as Aviary certainly shows great skill learned through the decades in order to keep its cushy nest well-feathered for all its many little birdies. So let's recount for 2011: America now has a transnational-corporation-backed Supreme Court and a military industrial complex on steroids and drunk on its own misguided power while millions of American people are wandering Main Street searching for a job of most any description. (A cynical recruitment scheme for the US military?)
Then it's no wonder the global banking syndicate with its usury interest rates and many underworld tactics have the world's populations 'over barrels' and trapped within a financial system which now, 'they say', needs "feathering in" ("-the pain," Woodward said at one point) in order to fini their big ruse, thereby successfully completing the Greatest Heist The World Has Ever Known in preparation for Bacon's tiresome Great Plan for America.
Yes, dark forces are at work and we've seen what they produce, now and in the past. Please, lone reader - don't succumb to the hypnotic effect of destruction as if before you a king cobra is poised to strike! Though a threatening cobra does make for great political theater, doesn't it? jc
**As usual, yours truly is the very varmint who sassily adds 'unconscious/shadow side' to Dr. Jones' analyses of the negative expression of each degree. His work doesn't need the addition but mine does. jc
