Of Saturnian Budget Control and Other Astro-Considerations
by Jude Cowell
Perhaps of interest to you may be the Social Security Legislative Bulletin dated August 2, 2011, the day that President Obama signed into law the Budget Control Act of 2011 (S. 365.) The bulletin includes details of the limits established on government-wide discretionary spending until year 2021 and implements a goal to save at least $1.5 trillion in budgetary savings over the next 10 years--which amazingly leads to 2021.
Also listed are the dates of the 'super committee' ('Super Congress') which failed to reach agreement thereby setting up the current 'sequester cuts' we shall now enjoy (she typed with sarcasm.) And you know that establishing a major policy of job creation would go a long way toward solving many if not all of all our budgetary problems, right? As usual, current Washington politicians focus their exalted energies on misguided targets to the point of treason.
One of my main take-aways from the ongoing financial charade--the Political Theater of recent years--is that if we can't manage in 2013 to legally remove congressional anarchists seeking to undermine the US government out of existence before they do us more harm, let's uplift the Common Good and Vote Them the Heck Out in 2014!
Here's an excerpt from President Obama's public statement of August 2, 2011 and sounding quite gullible concerning his future prospects of working with Republicans on debt and budget issues by way of "...a balanced approach where everything is on the table":
Now for a Little Astrology as We Lurch from Crisis to Crisis
August 2, 2011 Washington DC saw Sun in Leo (10Leo+) and Moon in the sign of The Worker and The Critic, Virgo. Mercury (signings, laws, agreements, debates, commerce, orators and speeches--here, from the Rose Garden) was stationary @1Vir11 (at noon edt) and there were some telling midpoint pictures in play. No matter the precise hour of the Act's signing, one such picture involved the wastrel-speculator-inflation-grand-schemer duo of Jupiter-Neptune; as always, any, all, or none may apply:
Jupiter-Neptune = Uranus (4Ari20 Rx): disruption by events that have no real explanation; basing decisions on odd or unusual theories about the effects of the supernatural; unaccustomed confusion (Munkasey): imagination v reality; coming down to earth with a bump; sudden recognition of a difficult situation (Ebertin.)
Another picture is created by a T-Square pattern with radical reformer and utopian anarchist Uranus in Aries as apex planet and catalyst and the forceful, manipulative Mars-Pluto duo opposing one another yet working in tandem:
Mars-Pluto = Uranus: using whatever power is available to reform, disrupt, stir up, or otherwise alter conditions (Munkasey); cruelty; violence; sudden disasters or calamities of great importance (Ebertin); dangerous sense of attack; fight first, talk later; a chip on one's shoulder (Tyl.)
One of my suspicions is that President Obama mainly wanted to 'control nagging uncertainties' by signing the Act since it was intended to replace budget resolutions not proposed: Moon-Mars = Sun (the leader.)
And you know, sore loser Republicans do behave as if they have a chip on their shoulders, don't they? Weakening America in the eyes of other nations as they undermine President Obama seems to be one of their primary goals, oddly enough. And now that the sequestration cuts have been signed into reality, one of my many frets for the Common Good is the next natural disasters the American people will suffer under a government that has purposefully fixed itself into a can't-be-bothered-to-send-aid mode of alleged frugality, the beap chastards.
Well, there was also a planetary pattern some call a Mystic Rectangle in effect on August 2, 2011 between Mercury, Pluto, Chiron, and an out-of-bounds Mars (off on his own and up to no good) at a critical-crisis 29th degree but that's enough of such dreary topics for the moment, as I suspect you'll readily agree!
Even so, let's add two quotes, the first from someone born with the Fire-Earth, King-Servant combination of Sun Leo-Moon Virgo which is imprinted upon the Budget Control Act of 2011. His words could be a description of the ongoing crises manufactured by the GOP and which are meant to cause the public to criticize the president and his Democratic administration--as if Republicans deserve a good review from their victims!
"A good review from the critics is just another stay of execution." Dustin Hoffman
"Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God's service when it is violating all His laws." John Adams, our 2nd US president
Amen, Mr. Adams.
