Jupiter-Neptune 2022: Is Inflation On the Rise?

by Jude Cowell

Friday August 13, 2021: When a dual image of horoscopes was published recently showing the Jupiter-Neptune Conjunctions of April 12, 2022 and the third of three conjunctions that perfected during 2009, several chart factors were noted in the post. Today, increasing mentions in the news of inflation in the US economy has spurred a re-posting of the April 12, 2022 horoscope for your consideration.

(Please follow the above link if you wish to read my notes for I won't retype them here.)

So as you've heard, in June and July of 2021 the US inflation rate was 5.4%, up from 5.0 in May as you can see in the US Inflation Rate Calculator.

DC Horoscope: Jupiter-Neptune Conjunct in Pisces Apr 12, 2022 10:43 am edt:

These gaseous giants meet approximately every 13 years: a grand spirit may begin!

Similar to a close conjunction, parallels make good timing devices so it could be worth a peek at a time frame beginning April 11, 2022 1:00 pm edt when Jupiter parallels Neptune (0A00) and up to their exact conjunction of April 12th as seen in the horoscope, above. This provides the curious seeker with a fuller picture of Jupiter-Neptune potentials which include inflation, bubbles, speculation, and/or political conflicts. As you know, another good timing device in Astrology is the quick-traveling Moon which floats from 18Leo54 on April 11th (1:00 pm edt) to 00Vir19 on April 12th (10:43 am edt) with Luna conjunct and reflecting royal Regulus ('success if revenge is avoided; otherwise all that's been gained will be taken away').

This is good advice to my way of thinking! Even for politicians.

Greenspan admitted The Fed is above US law (video); plus, Full Moon coming

Former protege of Ayn Rand, Mr. Greenspan Speaks about The Fed

by Jude Cowell

Here's a 48-second snippet from 2007 of Jim Lehrer interviewing Alan Greenspan who headed America's Federal Reserve System for several years:

Text of the full interview may be read here. A link to Mr. Greenspan's book is included if you're so inclined. As you know, reporter Andrea Mitchell has been married to Mr. Greenspan since 1997 and I continue to find it curious that her news program appears on the demi-progressive MSNBC. Yet MSNBC and NBC are Rockefeller enterprises after all.

Fiscal Schmiscal, Let's Call the Whole Thing Off

Here's an intriguing opinion piece on Rockefeller-Obama Republicans which makes the case that President Obama panders to the Republican Party--not because he doesn't negotiate well (as Rockefeller media and others propagandize), or that he's "weak"--but because he's one of them.

Related reading: Who's Done More Damage: Bernie Madoff or Alan Greenspan?

Stage Craft: It's All Political Theater, Dahlink!

Fast-forward to the current 'fiscal cliff'-sequester negotiations of December 2012 and we continue to see Mr. Obama putting certain concessions 'on the table' than what progressive voters who re-elected him expected since he now so obviously has a mandate from The People to protect us. Social Security? Mr. Obama campaigned on not including it in the fiscal deal since it has no part in creating the deficit. But now 'on the table' is a potential change in SS cost-of-living raises which will affect millions of seniors through disguised cuts as the years go by, thus removing money from the US economy, money that would've been spent. And that doesn't mention the potential for suffering.

Yes, FDR's New Deal programs are under seige by plutocrats as they've been from the time they were set up. But their enemies in 2012/2013 may prove more successful at gutting them than ever before for the culprits are hiding behind the cleverest mask of guile yet taken up by America's plutocratic class of power elites...aka, "the Democrats."

Yes, I do hope I'm being a paranoid Capricorn (very possible!) with this theory and that none of the above is the case, and that the label 'Democrat' still means We the People have a fighting chance to have our concerns addressed and resolved on Capitol Hill with some measure of honesty and clarity toward a 'more level playing field'. Plus, the nasty thought of 'population control' based on a 'survival of the fittest' creed (of Ayn Rand and others) comes to mind because of the coldhearted behavior of Washington politicians, whatever their party label.

So whether you bought that badly-acted Boehner Herding Cats matinee on the evening of December 20, 2012 or not (and their subsequent skedaddle out of town for Christmas break), don't be surprised if things turn even weirder and crazier during the last week of December--under the light of the December 28th Full Moon which takes us whimpering across the expiring-tax-break threshold into 2013. (Full Moon and 'fiscal cliff' horoscopes shown.)

That Lunar Madness under a Full Moon increases the number of crimes has been documented after all, as some police departments have attested--or, is it only because more activity occurs on Moon-lit nights?

Wonder if The Moon Society has studied the phenomena?

Thom Hartmann: Time to Jump Off the 'Fiscal Cliff'? (video)

Nothing But a "Speed Bump"? The Over-Hyped 'Fiscal Cliff'

Here's a view of what can happen after January 1, 2013 and what is good about America going over the so-called 'fiscal cliff' presented by one of my favorite progressive broadcasters, Thom Hartmann:

As Mr. Hartmann says, This can be fixed--let the new Congress do it!

Aug 3, 2012: Sen Bernie Sanders on House Floor vs Bush Tax Cut Extension (video)

Revealing the Ravages of US Plutocracy: Against We-The-People

by Jude Cowell

One US senator who is tireless in his defense of America's Middle Class is Vermont's Bernie Sanders who once again laid it all out on the House floor on August 3rd in contrast to the GOP senators who then took turns whining on behalf of the Bush tax cut extension which will end at 12:00 am est on January 1, 2013 unless a modicum of fiscal sanity is restored to Capitol Hill by the end of 2012. Yes, those Republicans are so deeply worried about the deficit and the national debt but funny how they don't mind adding trillions of dollars to it when it benefits their personal bottom lines!

After taking a look at the horoscope for that time and date in Washington DC, I am not comforted by the chart's Midheaven (The Goal; Aspirations, Public Standing) @8Can15 which is the midpoint degree of America's natal Sun/Jupiter in Cancer...Sun/Jupiter = MC: wealthy, successful people. And of course you know the Sabian Symbol for US natal Jupiter @ '6Cancer' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests." Well yes, they do. Rah-ther, old boy.

Yes, it seems to me that the upper 2% of our greedy game birds possess and control more than enough of America's wealth already, agreed? So let Senator Sanders tell the tale as he does so well...and get thee to the polls on November 6, 2012 unless you want a monetary royalist and religious cultist (yes, I typed it) like Romney in the White House.

Additionally, it may be of interest to consider the meaning of the Sun-Jupiter midpoint in the realms of Politics and Business. Quoting one indication from Michael Munkasey's Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets because it seems to closely apply to the situation:

"Sun-Jupiter = a religious or philosophical system which ties the effective leadership of the country to a predetermined course of action."

Sounds like the sequestration the Super-Committee (aka, Super-Congress) set up on November 23, 2011 as influenced by the November 25, 2011 Solar Eclipse in the 14 North Series (a peculiar turn of events; unexpected financial happenings; despair; confusion--Brady) but it also sounds like Grover Norquist's no-tax-increase pledge that a few Republicans are said to be balkinging against. And yet it seems that perennial condidate Mitt Romney has signed the pledge if one can tell anything for certain when it comes to the very squirmy Piscean fish, Mr. Romney.

Gerald Celente forecasts 2012 Trends (audio)



Among many topics concerning financial and political matters, in this recent audio interview economist Gerald Celente says there will be "a tremendous backlash against globalization in 2012" which seems both socially and astrologically well-timed to me.

Is a new US dollar on the Fed's agenda?

Alex Jones TV: more power for the Fed + flu vaccine ingredients

Since there are three new videos of Alex Jones speaking on President Obama's being set to give the Fed more power and control over the financial system (us), I'm providing a link to all three rather than embedding them here.

The third video concerns the ingredients in the new flu vaccines you're poised to receive - apparently it's quite some brew they have bubbling on the hob.

Seems everyone is poised on the verge today...

James Galbraith on the US financial system's 'Lost Decade' potential

Author, economist, and University of Texas Professor James K. Galbraith, son of economist John Kenneth Galbraith, has one of the clearest views of America's financial situation that I've read in a long time.

Professor Galbraith's directness about finances and politics is very refreshing in this time of obfuscations, heists, purposeful confusions, underhanded political strategies, and deceits.

You've probably read his articles in The Nation, Mother Jones, The American Prospect, and other publications; his 2008 book, The Predator State is on my reading wish list.

Professor Galbraith's Home Page at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas has more info on his work, if you'd like to check it out.

And here's one of his quotes from his Wiki bio which I'm lovin' about now (the quote, not the bio which is too slim to tell me where he was born) ~~ Update 9.10.09: see Comments after this post for the professor's own admission - he was born in Boston, probably 'in the evening'! Continuing his quote here:

"Today, the signature of modern American Capitalism is neither benign competition, nor class struggle, nor an inclusive middle-class utopia. Instead, predation has become the dominant feature -- a system wherein the rich have come to feast on decaying systems built for the middle class. The predatory class is not the whole of the wealthy; it may be opposed by many others of similar wealth. But it is the defining feature, the leading force. And its agents are in full control of the government under which we live."

Well, Professor Galbraith just summed up in one neat paragraph about 3/4 of this blog's almost-3000 posts of the last 4 years! And...he said,
utopia.

James K. Galbraith born Jan 29, 1952, hour and place unknown; Sun 8-10 AQ, Moon 10-25 Pisces; PE @ '8Vir' 7 South Series: 'tremendous anger, power, force; obstacles suddenly clear, or, a quick, fast-moving crisis moves through the life' (Brady's Predictive Astrology); last manifested Oct 3, 2005 @ '10Libra.'

Sun AQ/Moon Pisc's 'Images for Integration: A scientist sings grand opera...A brilliant inventor takes a sabbatical on a desert island.' (Sun Sign, Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

This Air-Water blend describes a thinker and poet with a universal outlook; there's independence and vulnerability, reverence, forgiveness, humor, and kindness.

This combo of energies is committed to a cause, loves people, has great psychological insights into them, is observant, sensible, friendly, and is at heart a scientist who loves weird phenomena.

Sun AQ-Moon Pisc is shared natally by: George Balanchine, England's Queen Ann, Eartha Kitt, Paul Newman, Franz Schubert, Roger Vadim, and, of all people since Galbraith has been scathing on Bush and the Iraq War - Dick Cheney.

And speaking of Cheney, his 6th house Mercury @ 25 AQ is being transited off and on (now on) by Neptune. Neptune-to-natal-Mercury (thinking; communicating) is a period with both positive and negative potentials such as: information dissemination and broadcasting, inspired imagination, higher mental planes, commercial sales, confusion, disorganization, fraud, an inability to grasp reality, and just plain old fashioned deception.
