Financial Astrology reveals risk-taker Jamie Dimon

"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do," confided old J. P. Morgan

by Jude Cowell

Well, apparently some financial titans don't use Astrology (or even pay someone who does)--or, they collapse financial conditions according to a schedule due to an over-arching 'Great Plan' long set in motion so that chaos will result and a Global Economic Order of Orwellian proportions can be set up, they think. Yes, thanks to The Great Cosmic Clock that is our Solar System, Astrology helps anti-social miscreants time their actions (bubbles, busts, take-overs, etc) in positive or negative fashion. Motives count!

In a Wall Street Weather article linked below, you'll find among other things, mention of the London trader ('The London Whale') who set JPMC's massive loss in motion by trading murky derivatives of sorry merit and the result is causing many to call for the return of Glass-Steagall provisions. But why in London?

Well, in previous posts on this blog, perhaps you've read of the City of London (a financial area which, like the Vatican, is a legal territory unto itself) acting as director of the government of the United States of America. An astro-indicator I have long used for this crazy notion is America's out-of-bounds Pluto 27Cap33 Rx (in our natal 2nd House of Money and Values) showing wealthy plutonians of power existing abroad in the old country--Capricorn--and pulling secretive strings in the US to which our politicians and Fed bankers have danced, and continue to dance. (Ex: trillions of our bailout monies circa 2008/09 were sent by the US Fed to entities and banks abroad--yet now the EU is all 'broke' and everything--except for Germany, it seems. Wonder where the trillions went? Did European monarchs scarf it up? Not satisfied, the power elite now austerely suck up the pension funds and more from the people of Europe as a global heist proceeds.)

Pluto v US Mercury Rx and Cornwallis the Surrendered

US natal Pluto (July 4, 1776 5:10 pm LMT Philadelphia, PA) opposes US natal Mercury Rx '25 Cancer' with its telling Sabian Symbol: "A Man Wrapped in an Invisible Mantle of Power" (wording from my SolarFire software) which resonates with Pluto and his sneaky Helmet of Invisibility--and in the real world of 1776, to whoever was haunting about Philadelphia and influencing the set-up of America (Adam Weishaupt is my best guess along with his old-world backers of the 'Great Plan' both contemporary and long-passed.)The Cornwallis Surrender horoscope is linked just below for your consideration--and the time is accurate, thanks to General Washington!

And of course, you know of our national Mercury/Pluto opposition and its tendencies toward surveilllance, spying, keeping secrets, spreading propaganda, and information gathering and data collection to which we are now subject as major technological advances spur on Government Spies (NSA) to keep tabs on our every move and all personal banking activities of The Masses.

Cornwallis Surrendered--or, They Just Stopped Fighting the Revolution

In a minor form, these issues were in the back of my mind as I wrote on General George Washington, Freemason and astrologer, electing the precise time and date for Cornwallis' Surrender (see chart link just below); I hope to return to the study of that very interesting horoscope at some point especially since it is perfectly timed by a top Freemason of his day, George Washington, who soon went on to become our first US president.

Wall Street Weather: stormy

So far the most insightful article online concerning last week's revelation and mea culpa from JP Morgan Chase's CEO Jamie Dimon (of "tempest in a teapot" fame) is found on the excellent Wall Street Weather site and I hope you'll check it out if you haven't, for one doesn't have to speak 'astrologese' to appreciate WSW's info-packed article.

I Knew It Was You, Reagan!

It's impossible for me to discuss US financial issues gone wrong without mentioning Mr. Reagan and his 1%-loving influence whilst playing president so if you wish, view a horoscope with brief notes concerning the July 30, 1981 Reganomics Eclipse @ 7Leo51 which conjoins George W. Bush's natal Ascendant (degree = "A Bolshevik Propagandist.") Also see: Reagan Signs Garn-St. Germain Act October 15, 1982, a real 'October Surprise' for the American people's financial prospects, as we now know, if we didn't before.

So the 1981 Solar Eclipse got the Decade of Greed (1980s) off to a rousing start and falls within the same Saros Series as The Mother of All Eclipses (1 North) as predicted by Nostradamus (aka, the 'King of Alarm' or 'Terror' eclipse--hello, 9/11) which last manifested on August 11, 1999 and thereby got the 21st Century off to a rousing start as well. Soon came the attacks on the World Trade Center with 9/11/01's Venus @ '19Leo' triggering the 1N eclipse of August 1999--the negative potential for '19Leo' is:

"thoughtless self-indulgence and contempt for the general welfare."

Hmmm...sounds to this common-gooder like some Wall Street CEOs, banksters, traders, monarchists, zealots, and politicians we can all name!

Why "Tinkering w the corporate state" won't work (OWS)

Even so-called liberals are quaking from the increase in Occupy Wall Street protests here and abroad and Chris Hedges asserts that, "Tinkering with the corporate state will not work."

Allow Mr. Hedges to paint the picture for you more clearly than I ever could as the 'Too Big To Fail' 99% movement of dissent sweeps across the globe, disgruntling Pluto/Chiron types as they hunker down in their oligarchic ivory towers and state-of-the-art bunkers, poor things.

Yes, their disenfranchising and oppresssion of the 99% of us are being called to account at last and in the biggest way possible: peacefully and righteously.

A Movement Too Big To Fail by Chris Hedges.

The tyranny of plutocracy must end as transiting Pluto plows slowly through Saturn-ruled Capricorn, transforming structures, institutions, and governments as it approaches America's natal Pluto (27Cap33 Rx) for our first-ever Pluto Return/s 3x in year 2022.

You know the applicable equation--it's easy and historically accurate:

Corporatism + Statism = Fascism.

The world didn't approve of fascism and fascists before and we certainly Do Not Like Them Now.

Also see: Plutocracy, the true face of America. Why, if if weren't for the Bill of Rights all we'd have for a "freedom document" in the US is a plutocracy-protecting Constitution.

But that's a blog fuss for a another day.

Occupy Wall Street live video w Aries Full Moon chart of 10.11.11

Monday October 10, 2011: This week the US Congress gavels in on Tuesday October 11, and the president's jobs bill may be taken up--not passed, for that would make too much sense--but 'taken up' on Capitol Hill with President Obama seen by some as pushing his financial plan as bank protests grow.

If the jobs bill will bring relief to the 99%, let him push! And let the politically minded GOP get out of the way.

Meanwhile, peaceful Occupiers in Washington DC are on shaky ground with their permit expiring today and no one seems to know what will happen to protesting Americans who are also speaking out against US wars which were begun with falsehoods and have gone on for way too long.

Today protests against America's corrupt capitalist system begin their 4th week on Wall Street (live video below) as other cities across the country join in including Kansas City where the people know what you and I know that, Corporations Are Not People.

The Light of an Aries Moon with a Jupiter/Pluto Midpoint

A Full Moon @ 18Ari24 on October 11, 2011 represents the culmination or fulfillment phase of something begun at the last New Moon of September 27, 2011 @ 4Lib00 (horoscope shown) which emphasized the ongoing opposition of string-puller Pluto to US natal Jupiter 5Can56.

(During the Great Depression, transiting Pluto conjoined America's planets in Cancer; now Mr. Underworld has changed his tune and opposes our Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and eventually our Mercury Rx, too, as efforts continue to dismantle and dissolve FDR's New Deal programs. Apparently global bankers such as the Houses of Rockefeller and Rothschild were on board with the Roosevelt presidency's financial policies but now they're working hard to harvest the last decades' abundance away from the American people--and so far succeeding too well.)

The Occupy Wall Street protests actually began on Sept 17--ten days earlier than the September New Moon. Astrologer Lynn Hayes has written an excellent article on the movement's genesis which she calls the Beginning of Uranus/Pluto in the US, a reference to the current Uranus/Pluto square in their cycle which issued from their Great Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s, a time of social upheaval and the anti-war and civil rights protests of my generation.

The 1960s mid-Virgo Uranus/Pluto conjunction may be found in the 4th house (Foundation; Basis of the Matter) of the Full Moon horoscope you see below.

Click to enlarge the chart to read a few notes which won't be covered in this text.

ASC 29Gem39 (29, a critical/crisis degree) makes 5th house Mercury 27Lib49 the chart-ruler; Hour: Sun 18Lib24, in its Fall in Libra and conjunct US Sec Mars Rx--'19Lib' = "A Gang of Robbers in Hiding (peep-eye, Wall Street!) Sun and Saturn are about to hook-up, a time of serious issues, hard work, and a call for responsibility for the culpable; Saturn opposing the Full Moon shows depression of the people, but can also indicate ambition and strategy being employed.

The speculator/wastrel/grand-schemes pair, Jupiter and Neptune, rule the MC through Pisces; restrictive Saturn rules 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, Credit, and Transformation, with the degree of the 8th cusp 19Cap40 implicating the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune (1993), the Illuminati/Enlightenment/NWO pair of energies.

In 5th house of Gambling and Risk-Taking, evaluating Venus 3Sco32 conjoins US *Sec Saturn Rx indicating the American people's (Aries Moon = 'I Am the People') fed-up condition (Full Moon opposition) and dissatisfaction with America's imperial wars (Sec Mars Rx) being waged abroad and the financial embezzlement, loss, and system-gaming they have engendered while lawmakers tell us US coffers are bare and domestic budgets must be cut (Venus/Saturn) with an austere hatchet when it comes to the needs of the American people.

How Things Proceed: chart-ruler Mercury applies to these planets and ASC:

1. trine Neptune 28AQ22 Rx (0A33: cold logic won't intrude upon inspiration; instincts rule; intuition--or Twitter--leads us to the right place at the right time.)

2. trine ASC (1A50: knows limits; capitalizes on talents and abilities; seeks approval.)

3. trine Chiron 1Pis05 Rx (3A16: wise old souls seek healing--Clow.)

4. conjunct Venus 3Sco32 (5A43: discussion of common goals with partners or allies; advice or information available which concern legal matters, joint ventures, or contracts.)

Not bad, as applying aspects go! Plus, Mercury rules young people, trade, commerce, oration, slogans, plans, negotiations, and many other mercurial things.

Mercury also rules the Full Moon's 4th house of Real Estate and Domestic Scene, and the president's natal Pluto in Virgo. (I refer to Mr. Obama as 'president', and not to Speaker of the House Mr. Boehner who seems confused on the issue at times.)

As you see, rising in first house is the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 which falls within our nation's line-up of Cancerian planets--and precisely between our national Sun and Jupiter, a factor you and I knew would be trouble.

President Obama's natal, quixotic Chiron/Pluto opposition is in full view (MC/IC) and is notated upon the chart along with a T-Square (Pluto/ASC = Uranus in Aries ( = Utopians and other anarchists; Uranus also is The Awakener, as mentioned in protesters' chants) so we have a picture of extraordinary incidents and upsets, constant anxiety and restlessness, and potential changes of environment.

Pluto/Chiron = plutocracy; oppression; disenfranchisement; primal violence; racism and other -isms and agents of oppression.

A Grand Trine which includes North Node (NN = encounters; meetings; future direction; publicity) ropes in the October 11th Full Moon along with a feisty Leonine Mars so that three pictures are formed:

1. Moon/Mars = NN indicates vigorous cooperation with others, and women as associates.

2. Moon/NN = Mars shows energetic advocacy of unions or associations and vigorous teamwork (teamsters? jc)

3. Mars/NN = Moon brings in more feminine participation along with 'soul contact' vibes present within enterprises of mutually sympathetic people.

You may wish to click and view the participants in a rather involved Kite pattern with ASC as the Kite's 'tail', and Fixed Stars Polaris ('to show the way') and Betelgeuse ('success which is not blocked') rising and directing the Kite's high-flying inspirations and a prognosis for success.

Of note to current financial topics and other large endeavors is a Minor Grand Trine (highlighted in pink) if one includes Midheaven (MC = Goals; Aspirations), an angular point where Jupiter/Pluto (in trine) may express the pair's big banker/wheeler dealer energies. This pattern creates a significant midpoint picture:

Jupiter/Pluto = MC: industriousness; ambition; advantages in one's occupation; advancement and promotion; great good luck. (Ebertin.)

Jupiter continues his delaying Rx phase in Taurus, a money sign with a shadow side that includes greed and intolerance.

Well, moneybags Jupiter (Republicans) and manipulative Pluto (the dragon guarding the world's hidden riches, and robbing us all) are certainly simpatico (trine) this week and so far are quite successful in their Make Obama And America Fail campaign...their midpoint sits upon the Full Moon's Goal Point (MC.) But this means that Jupiter/Pluto also sits upon President Obama's natal Chiron in Pisces--and affects goals with the wounding--or talent--that Chiron, The Key, always provides.


Note: when protesting, Beware Agent Provocateurs!

And if you dare, check out the 'peculiar turn of events' potential in the horoscope of the upcoming Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 @ 2Sag37, a date perfectly within range of describing the recommendations from the 'Super Congress' (aka, 'Super Committee') which are due on November 23, 2011.

Washington's Oath on a Wall Street Balcony and our First Amendment

George Washington's Wall Street meets Occupy Wall Street's First Amendment

by Jude Cowell

Have you ever noticed the horoscope for the ceremony of our very first presidential oath-taking on a Wall Street balcony at Federal Hall (26 Wall Street) just across from the NYSE building in lower Manhattan, NYC?

Among other factors, the horoscope shows a YOD pattern (special task; crossroads; turning point; crisis; paradox) on April 30, 1789 at 12:45 pm LMT which is the moment our then-Freemason-in-Chief of some wide repute, George Washington, elected to take the very first US Presidential Oath of Office.

And the same site, Wall Street's Federal Hall, is the place where the First Amendment was created and ratified, 222 years ago this very week. Here it is now:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

So, gathering their filly skirts about them, you'll find that the official website of Federal Hall now opens with a Notice saying that for the 'duration' of the Occupy Wall Street protests, the *front door of the site where President George Washington took the first-ever oath of office will be barricaded...yes, barricaded against The People.

It is within the nature of Temples to be defended. Of course.

Yet the Notice carries such an 18th century vibe, even for the chronically self-protective, I do declare! (My spats and top hat are at the cleaners, if you're wondering.) Guess the authorities are cooperating with the well-heeled of Wall Street in case something valuable needs guarding against the younger generation.

So if we look to Sabian Symbols for a descriptive word picture concerning the Occupy Wall Street presence of 2011 as they issue from the 1789 brouhaha that started the whole shebang and a branch of government--with a pageant on display upon a Wall Street balcony since our nation's capitol was then situated at Federal Hall NYC--therefore, we may wish to snoop using the one-degree-for-a-year method of looking at outcomes bwo evolutionary Symbols.

And because Astrology describes universal energy flowing in an AC-DC fashion--one of the following signifies on some level the protesters, the other the self-exalted swelled-heads whom the marchers and chanters wish to reach with a message of we-the-people's grievances against them and against the sorry ways in which American society has been run the last decade or so. We're so scammed.

(Time for a shout-out to Pres. Bill Clinton's 'free' trade frenzy that really got the outsourcing of US workers' jobs rockin' back in the 1990s. If millions more Americans had jobs that paid at the least a living wage, most of our financial issues would go poof!)

But wage setting is merely a goalpost the power elite keep moving at their will or fancy, but always to our detriment, after they've had The Creatives drape gauzy veils of political assurances over it to disguise their true intent. Don't look too closely!

Math Produces Symbol: **12 Scorpio

2011 - 1789 = 222 (7 signs = 210 + 12 degrees = 222 = 12 Scorpio) = "An Embassy Ball"...Keyword: DISPLAY; positive expression: an absolute stability of self as contribution to group integrity; negative (unconscious/shadow side): a smug demand for special privilege.

Like barricading Federal Hall against the rambling natives?

(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Marc Edmund Jones; 'unconscious/shadow side' added by yours truly.)

*An instruction for using a side door is listed on the website. Which reminds me of self-protective Cancer, sign of The Crab, that will scuttle sideways (or through side doors) in order to avoid inconvenient (and possibly superior) challenges to its authority.

**Interestingly, Nicholas deVore gives '12Sco' as a degree of business in his Encyclopedia of Astrology (1947; Philosophical Library, New York.)

Astro-Link Round-Up on Occupy Wall Street w a 'Ferdinand the Bull' video!

Uranus/Pluto Rages as Ferdinand Hearts Occupy Wall Street 10.03.11

Did you know that on The Mountain Astrologer website today, expert astrologer Mary Plumb has published a News and Astrology article round-up of links concerning the ongoing and spreading (!) protests in progress in Manhattan of the Occupy Wall Street movement where I'm proud to say that America's younger generations (who are suffering from the thieving of Wall Street top hats wearers and champagne goblet toasters) and are not afraid to tell the fancy swells about their--our--grievances!

Mary includes images of America's natal horoscope, US Solar Return 2011, and a sunrise (solar) nativity for Occupy Wall Street set for its beginning: September 17, 2011 6:38:03 am edt NY, NY, with transiting Mars, the activist/protester/instigator, opposing US natal
Pluto 27Cap33 Rx (in US natal 2nd house of Money and Earning Ability.)

This transit of opposition marks a period when hostile forces are encountered (protesters v banksters, and riot police v we-the-people) with powerful, card-holding Pluto insuring a mobilizing effect, and the Mars/Pluto combination of energies relating to zeal, massive amounts of energy, heavy-handed police or military actions, and potentially explosive conditions.

Yes, this is the very contest of wills which this transit warns us against yet that is precisely what is happening in NYC, plus, the protests are spreading like...a contagion of a more positive kind than Gwyneth Paltrow can muster onscreen.

The interference of protesting Mars with business-as-usual and the attempt of the street marchers to change the status quo are at the foundation of Occupy Wall Street's motivations and resulting events as many journalists and pundits echo an off-the-point Establishment cry of "But what do they want?" (duh!) and "They have no leader" and "there's no one-pointed goal," with Mars, ruler of Aries, the poster boy for me-first-ism and pioneerism...but The Angry One is in more than a passing snit over continued Wall Street fraud and outright corporate deception as our lives and futures are co-opted by conglomerates more powerful than in their initial heyday of the Robber Baron Era of the 1880s and 1890s.

With Mars opposite US natal Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn (business, government, law--all of which institutions the protesters and marchers are riling up in an unusual fashion--Uranus square Pluto), the movement if imprinted by this opposition to the people's desires (Mars) and its heartfelt sentiments are palpable and arouse Wall Street's antagonism and deep sense of self-protection (Saturn = boundaries and rules; Cancer = the canny self-protection of The Crab who will move sideways, if necessary, to escape and avoid.)

Now regardless of pepper-spray-in-face Tony Baloney's overreaction, the NYC police force has pension worries of its own thanks to fraud and embezzlement by corporate and government types--wonder if they know they're on the wrong side? Actually, police and other city officials are on the proverbial horns of a dilemma for their paychecks must be signed to be deposited even as the Wall Street Bull snorts its disapproval of the grass roots goings-on.

My opinion is that an honest and direct approach may shine a favorable light upon those who are involved in the Occupy Wall Street protests and indeed this manner of doing things in a peaceful way is the only chance to gain an upper hand through taking the moral high ground.

Goodness knows, Wall Street CEOs and their agents, minions, and operatives haven't a clue how to proceed along such a decent path without being lead by their comfort-loving noses like Disney's Ferdinand the Bull smelling flowers...


My Q for you: Aren't you loving the old films and photos (and history info) in Ken Burns' Prohibition which began showing on PBS last evening, Sunday? It's a three-part series detaili,somehting which must come from within. Astonsishingly, a majority of Americans in those days drank day and night but most brew weren't as strong as they are today.

Wish I could tell Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and any proto-fascists such as the corporate-backed Tea Party hierarchy crowd, and all Federalist Society disciples that their tiresome scapegoat tactic (it's them, not us) of 'projecting the shadow upon others; not being accountable or held accountable' has worn papery thin and we're fed up with wealthy, globally-inclined bankers and monarchists jerking our country around by her Aquarian nose. Even with transit Neptune, planet of loss, fraud, and delusion, still languishing near US natal Moon @ '28AQ' (we-the-people)--we are so over your sorry ways!

Now what a nasally post about the upturned snoots of Wall Street this turned out to be. Still, Mary Plumb's chart analyses are not-to-be-missed (thanks for the SO'W link, Mary!)

Plus, on a lighter note, I do hope you'll enjoy a little flowery Ferdinand just for old times' sake because...

2011 minus 1938 equals this Ferdinand cartoon is 73 years old! jc

Wall Streeters mock Occupy Wall Street marchers w champagne toasts (video)

Feeling mighty special, Wall Streeters with champagne glasses in hand, mock and smirk from their exalted balconies at Occupy Wall Street protesters below. How tres amusing their ef-you jokes must be!

What was that you say, dear reader? Pride comes before a fall?

Then smirk on, Wall Street gentry, for your day in the sun won't last forever and you'll reap the mocking you've sown.

This blogger of the Flower Power generation is heartened by how most of the protesters are young folk--it's a deja-vu of peaceful street marches for me. For after all, it's in large part their futures that have been stolen by Wall Street gangsters many of whom are of my generation, I'm very embarrassed to say.

Biggest Heist in US History: Gerald Celente videos

In case you missed it, you may wish to hear Gerald Celente expressing in plain words what's been going on in the financial system thanks to the mafia types of Wall Street. You'll find that Mr. Celente's kind of plain words aren't like the kindergarten variety politicians use on us as if we're stupid. (If we're stupid it's primarily from trusting them to represent us.)

Part 2 of Celente's remarks is posted below; there are 4 videos altogether totalling about 40 minutes. I trust you to find them if you want to watch 'em.

ABA Convention protests and the Saturn/Pluto Square

"We're not here to cause trouble - we're here because we are in trouble." So begins this video of the weekend's protests at the American Bankers Association in Chicago, Illinois, the ABA. Or as we have every right to think of them based on their actions: the American Bankrobbers Association.

1,000 protesters were involved and they are expecting over 5,000 people to arrive in Chicago by Tuesday, Oct 27, to join in protesting Wall Street bankers taking our tax money and using it to give themselves massive bonuses and lobby Washington against meaningful financial reform.

Last evening I was studying the *astrology chart of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, signed by George Bush on July 30, 2002 @ 10:28 am edt in Washington, with the Sun 7Leo15 conjunct Bush's natal Ascendant, and Mars 10Leo52 conjunct his natal Mercury/Pluto conj in 1st house of Self.

Mercury/Pluto = tr Mars: indefatigable; an ability to master great tasks; sharp criticism; a desire to attack others; a blackmailer; grasping a situation quickly, rightly or wrongly, and taking confident and persuasive action; attacking an issue without reservation. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

(Midpoint pictures may operate in an any-all-or-none fashion - here Bush's natal midpoint is being triggered by transiting Mars. You be the decider if it applies to the issue at hand.)

As I said, I was studying the signing chart last evening and am copying/pasting the post I began then. You can see the mood I was in after feeling an inconvenient compulsion to read about the smokescreen legislation of Sarbanes-Oxley and George Bush. And this, after celebrating a radiant 4-year-old's birthday. What a come-down.

The SOX bill was supposedly going to improve the financial system and take significant steps to penalize fraud, but with deceptive, veiling - fraudulent - Neptune 9AQ39 Rx in 5th house of Gambling and Risk-Taking - and opposing the Sun-Mars conjunction affecting Bush's natal chart, it's easy to see what a baseless belief that was. 'Smokescreen' is a Neptunian word par excellence and the fraud was baked into the bill itself.

From my post of last evening:

Hold on to your Green Stamps, Myrtle, Bush is signin' somethin' again...or he did, on July 30, 2002 at 10:28 am edt at the usual scene of the crime, the White House.

A kitten's yarnball of complexity, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was eagerly put into play by erstwhile politicians, and yet according to Ron Paul, was unnecessary and costly to US businesses. Plus, Fedheader Alan Greenspan praised it which is enough to cause a gut reaction against it for me, and we can't say that SOX has put on the breaks of fraud's jalopy in US financial markets, can we?

Here you may read Bush's pie-in-the-sky signing statement and one must wonder if the bill was one of those under the table you-follow-the-law-cos-I-won't affairs Bush was so fond of and famous for. He liked to pick and choose which points his chain-yankers agreed with in the bills he signed, you remember.

Financial wheeler-dealer Dick Cheney wasn't on hand for the signing, oddly enough. Perhaps he had big-time insider trading to do and couldn't break away from the game.


That's as far as I got with last night's post until today when I find the video of the weekend protesters doing the right thing on behalf of their fellow American taxpayers across our bankrupted-by-the-power-elite land.

My heart is with them in Chicago yet my body must remain in Georgia! Collectively, Saturn is squaring Pluto, and Bush's boots are kicked back on the front porch of new-world-orderism while giving the occasional speech for mega-bucks. His recent speeches given in Canada have been attracting protesters, too. Good.

When Saturn squares Pluto there is a defensive stance against social responsibility which can be seen in the above video as bankers refuse to listen much less come clean. Under this aspect such responsibility is seen as an obstacle rather than an opportunity.

Extremes are resorted to in order to get out of being held accountable, such as tossing out protesters and writing/backing sorry legislations - which, if they have any teeth at all will only be loop holed by the wealthy - so this square between two planets concerned with control and change is undergirding a lot of what's going on in the collective, including the protests.

Saturn/Pluto squares are times when superiors will not tolerate underlings' attempts to grasp control, and we see the impatience and resentment of a we're-fed-up protest by the people. Status and security are prime motivators for those in control and yes, they are feeling threatened by the opposition to their fulfilment of every wish to dominate others and to gather all resources within their Midas caves of greed.

So perhaps the poster child of the Saturn/Pluto square and its anti-societal effects can here be named: Wall Street wheeler-dealer Dick Cheney, who was born with the aspect in his natal chart. And the aspect kind of summarizes his freakish VP governing style, doesn't it?


Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, July 30 @ 10:28 am edt, DC: ASC 28Vir24 (Saturn there in recent days); MC (The Goal) 28Gem11 (Sabian Symbol for '28Vir' - "A Bald-headed Man Who Has Seized Power"; The Goal? '28Gem' - "A Man Declared Bankrupt" - that'd be us and corporations avoiding social responsibilities like pensions, etc.)

Sun as noted above, Moon in 7th house @17Ari14, trining chart-tuler Mercury (signings, contracts, bills) @ 17Leo33 in 11th house. Mercury's only applying aspect is its trine to the Moon which opposes Bush's natal Chiron, Moon, Jupiter conjunction.

And moneybags Jupiter? Just barely into 10th house of Public Status - significantly positioned @ 29Can32, the degree of the Solar Eclipse cycle we're now in since the July 21, 2009 Eclipse - 'systems fail; new ideas and methods needed.' (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

The bankers (Jupiter) are part of the crew who want our financial system to fail. But you've noticed that by now, right?

12th house of backdoor deals contains values-oriented Venus 21Vir46 conjunct tr asteroid Cupido linked to corporatism; Venus is conjunct Fixed Star Denebola, keywords: to go against society; against the mainstream.

Foreclosed and forgotten?

10,000 Americans Going Into Foreclosure Every Day: It's Time to Treat America's Homeowners as Well as We've Been Treating Wall Street's Bankers

By Arianna Huffington

Why hasn't the foreclosure crisis gotten the attention it deserves?


Personally I'd say the greed and corruption of Wall Street bankers and crooked politicians have run the economic system into a hole. But Arianna says it much better.

And this is good news: 'Sir' Allen Stanford has been located in the Fredericksburg, VA area, says NPR at 5:00 pm est.
