Here a caller to the Thom Hartmann Show questions the continued existence of the Federal Reserve Bank which many people believe causes the economic problems it then pretends to rush in and solve. Thom replies to the caller and adds historical information about Richard Nixon taking the US off the gold standard:
As you know, Senator Aldrich along with bankers and corporate operatives met in secret in late 1910 in order to plan the creation of what became the Federal Reserve Bank. This planning session of sneaky "duck hunters" has a Syzygy Moon (last lunation prior) which perfected @8Sag49 during the secret meeting on Jekyll Island, Georgia. To me, the karmic degree (8Sag) is more revealing of the Fed's genesis than the Sabian Symbol for the rounded-up degree of 9Sag though of course both degrees (word pictures) apply. And as you know, the Panic of 1907 was used as justification for planning and establishing the Federal Reserve Act in December 1913 and the American people and US government officials have been its subjects ever since. See what you think (my italics) of 8Sag:
8 Sagittarius: "Rocks and Things Forming Therein" which speaks of creating one's own reality by "taking control of the circumstances which provide the matrix" for existence. "Each person in accepting his roots and capitalizing on his own endowment is enabled to proceed to high achievement." This degree of the Fed's New Moon, the seed phase of a new cycle of activity, expresses as: "exceptional ability to mold or remold the course of events." (The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones.)
Can anyone disagree that the Federal Reserve System through its money monopoly did and does just that?
