Midas to US n Uranus with gold prices ballooning

This economic news from Thursday with gold on the rise; transiting asteroid Midas continues to affect by conjunction US natal Uranus 8Gem55, America's totem planet; 2010's Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter (money) and quirky Uranus may have something to do with it since their June 2010 conjunction occurred at Aries Point upon US natal Ic in the Sibly chart:

Hints of mutiny within Fed as attempt to crash dollar becomes clear

(Steve Watson) – The US dollar plunged once again today as the currency continues to be battered by increasingly substantial rumours that the Federal Reserve will announce, within the next three weeks, plans to buy $1 trillion of government debt in the form of “monetary easing”.

The dollar hit a fresh 10-month low Thursday morning, falling for a third day running against a basket of six major currencies.

The greenback is trading at a near 15-year low against the yen as the selling pressure picks up momentum.

And if you missed NPR's Planet Money feature today We Bought Gold read or listen to the audio concerning their new gold-buying project with its details on why the price of gold is ballooning.

Plus, some historical perspective may be gained from the famous Cross of Gold speech delivered at the 1896 Democratic Convention. And in a flurry of historical synchronicity, the Great Conjunction/s of Neptune and Pluto (1891 - 1892), the Robber Baron duo, occurred at 8Gem38, 8Gem19, and 7Gem4...where tr Midas (and tr Pan of panic fame) now languish.

Rich vs Poor = class warfare, y'all!

Ron Paul speaks on returning to a Gold Standard

Here are some of Ron Paul's ideas about returning the US to a gold standard and repealing legal tender laws which force us to use worthless paper money.

In his conversation with Fox News, Dr. Paul mentions a bit of siver-gold history, a debate still raging after all these years, for as you may remember, presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan framed the gold-silver issues well and famously in his Cross of Gold speech at the 1896 DNC convention. (Some Astrology involved, but post also contains a link to Bryan's Cross of Gold text which you can read with your own eyes. Plus, he made a recording of his speech later on because it was so popular with the American people.)

So for a little history on the gold standard vs worthless money debate (and Congress' delegating the creation and issuance of our money to privateers like the Federal Reserve Bank against the US Constitution, as Paul notes), Bryan's speech is a great place to start.


And I just thought of two more players who should be noted. Here's what President Woodrow Wilson said after he created the Fed with a flourish of his pen; plus, the post contains a link to Andrew Jackson info, the president who fought against central banks and their throttle hold on the US government.

Obama's Chiron in Pisces + the Nep-Pluto septile

Some folk are calling this 2008 presidential race 'gilded' but see if you agree.

Today I'm grieving for Jennifer Hudson and her family and I know both readers of this blog are saddened by this family tragedy.

Here in Georgia the weather is chill and damp today so we're staying as snug as bugs may be expected to stay.

Hearing of Barack Obama's speech in Canton, Ohio today puts me in mind of the famous anti-war speech so well-delivered several moons ago by Eugene V. Debs.

And here I've exerpted from his advice for you if you go to Washington so heed before you leave for Washington Town. The city's parallel is most particular, y'know, and there are more mountain goats than you can shake a stick at there.

So between speeches by Debs and the stellar Cross of Gold speech by William Jennings Bryan is where I find myself plopped this day while pondering why Senator Obama chose Canton in which to speak, or perhaps I should say....preach.

Natally Barack Obama has Chiron in Watery Pisces, sign of the collective, sign of compassion (not the manufactured kind), sign of sacrifice, and sign of fishes everywhere.

Pisces can be the preacher but many generals have been born under the sign of the fish (which may seem odd at first.)

And since Chiron travels between the orbits of Saturn (the past) and Uranus (the future), Chiron is the "be here now" figure, the Alpha and Omega and the All in between.

Chiron is experiential because of his catalyst nature, his morphing ability learned from sky god, Uranus, while his perfect/imperfect form is from Saturn. Plato's Ideal Form - the synthesis of Saturn and Uranus, is an idea more perfect in imagination.

Chiron is the 'learn by doing' focus in our charts and so is the expression of the Ideal in earthly form, upon the Cross of Matter.

Heaven brought to Earth, and whose Sabian Symbol at discovery, '4Taurus' is: "A Rainbow's Pot of Gold."

This symbolism echoes within Bryan's Cross of Gold speech which superimposes the strain against mankind on to a cross of cruxifixion by materialistic greed's physicality and frigidity of feeling for one's fellow man.

This precise speech garnered Bryan the Democratic Party's nomination for president although he had not been the nominee before the DNC took place.

But you see, WJB held the audience spellbound. A silver-tongued Democrat of the populist persuasion is difficult to ignore.

The supplied audio of his Cross of Gold speech (which I heard part of last week on NPR) was recorded some years after that night at the DNC. Unfortunately, no recording of his speech's actual DNC delivery exists...but eye-witness reports fill out the picture along with the text.

Then it was silver Democrats vs gold Republicans. Is it still?

The 1890s are an interesting era to study, don't you think?

After all, it's the descendants of the Generation of Materialism, the Gilded Age crowd, the Industrialists and Bankers, that are bedeviling us now as transiting MIDAS Rx plays about the 7 - 8 Gemini area which are the Great Conjunction degrees of Neptune and Pluto, the planets of the Gilded Age because their time clock was 'punched' at their conjunction.

Once again, the degrees and dates of our current Neptune-Pluto cycle:

1. August 2, 1891 8Gem38 Direct
2. November 5, 1881 8Gem19 Rx
3. Apr 30, 1882 7Gem42 Direct

Neptune - oil, gas, oceans, liquids, beverages, drugs, negative escapism, confusions, deceptions, the masses, veils, subterfuges, spirituality, merging, inspired creativity, the Divine Source;

Pluto - hidden places such as caves, tunnels, graves, sepulchres, pipes, plumbing, spies, detectives, investigators, publishers, assassins, saboteurs, a secret hand, the power-behind-the-throne, ruler of Hades, transformation, regeneration, death, the dragon who guards the riches, rapist, abductor, the pope, the puppetmaster/s.

And with Neptune and Pluto's angular relatoinship now moving in and out of septile aspect (51 degr 26 mins) the collective is having that 'fated' 'karmic' feeling/intuition deja-vu-ing once again.


Karma: Neptune-Pluto septile has a few notes on the septile, Neptune-Pluto, and the 7th Harmonic, or
'H7' as I tend to write it...that fated feeling.

The Cross of Gold: text link from DNC 1896

We may be tempted to think that today's current money crisis is somehow new or unprecedented in America or in the wider world.

Yet William Jennings Bryan, in his address to the Democratic National Convention of 1896, covered many issues which may resound to our current issues such as: "gold Republicans" vs "silver Democrats" and the coining and issuing of money by private individuals (such as the Fed.)

Siding with Thomas Jefferson on the coining and issuing of money being a function of government, Bryan stated that, "banks ought to go out of the governing business."

If the Bush-Cheney-Bernanke-Paulson scheme passes, banks will BE the governing business.

And you know what that adds up to: corporatism + state = fascism. Simple formula, a long time coming.

When he delivered his address, 'Cross of Gold' which denounced the gold standard, Bryan was a young Nebraska congressman who had been chosen as the Democratic party's presidential nominee. His speech mesmerized the convention and Bryan thereafter became a spokesman and devotee of silver. Not all Democrats agreed on the issue, but that's a post for another day.

Yet Bryan and his party members were defeated at least partially due to their silver promotion and the economic crisis of their day. Then, as now, it was the economy, stupid.

Between a major economic depression and the rise of Populism, William McKinley and the gold Republicans were able to carry the 1896 election; Republican control of the White House and both houses of Congress in 1897 serve in hindsight to mark the end of the *Gilded Age, even as the descendants of "the idle holders of idle wealth" whom Bryan railed against so eloquently in 1896 continue to play the trickle-down card upon the working masses to our present-day detriment.

Cross of Gold by William Jennings Bryan, 1896.

*Gilded Age is what is usually referred to on this blog as the Generation of Materialism, marked astrologically by the Great Conjunction Neptune and Pluto, 1892.

You may wish to read Senator Bernie Sanders' statement on the vicious class warfare being waged upon America's middle class (compliments of Pluto-Chiron plutocracy) which is included in a post of mine from January 13, 2008, Plutocrats: Middle Class Warfare going dandily, for the effects of their viciousness have become, with current market meltdowns, socializing of private debts, and naked power grabbing, impossible to hide or ignore.
