Experts run the world with theories as 2007 Jupiter-Pluto conjunction triggered

Since the New Millennium, we've seen 'experts' running the world via their long held pet theories which have had no history of success. With this weekend's Full Moon @2Cap09--a 'supermoon' (Nolle) because it is closer to Earth than any Full Moon will be until August 2014--its bright light is precisely what their purposefully inept theories that have debilitating consequences for the masses need:

Here are a few rays of illuminating moonlight: Experts now run the world using their theories. What if they fail, and we lose confidence in them? for your consideration.

And since master astrologer Richard Nolle coined the term 'supermoon' to describe a perigee Moon, you may wish to check out his forecasts for the June 23, 2013 Full Moon and more.

June 2013's Downer DOW and the Fed's Jupiter-Pluto

As for the stock market's plunge this week, my schedule overflowed with real world events and I wasn't able to make time for an article on financial matters. So I'll briefly mention what I noticed about the week's Fed announcement by Ben Bernanke and the NYSE reaction (which won't be comprehensive at all but here goes...)

Besides today's Summer Solstice 2013 triggering the Cardinal World Points (Sun to 00Can00:00, when important events manifest), the Sun-Jupiter conjunction of the week at 28Gem+ (a degree of Bankruptcy in the Sabian Symbols, as noted in a previous post) opposed the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto @28Sag23 on December 11, 2007, also a day of a Fed announcement.

The Jupiter-Pluto pair (big bankers, plutocrats exploiting the masses, organizers of large projects, professors of law, pursuers of fanatical aims, speculators and squanderers, influential criminal elements, extreme depletion of resources) conjoined within 15 minutes of Mr. Bernanke's public remarks that day and of course the coming Bush Depression-Financial Collapse of 2008 was in the wind in December 2007 had many only realized it.

My point is that this week's Sun-Jupiter conjunction was something of a double whammy for the beginning of the current Jupiter-Pluto cycle for Sun and Jupiter both opposed 2007's banking Jupiter and wealth manipulator, power-mad Pluto.

2013 Sun oppo 2007 Jupiter denotes an unfavorable time for religious and political activities (Obama in Europe and at the G8 Summit in Ireland this week has been called disappointing) and people may be all show with little substance (don't get me started on "amateur hour" in Congress+ this week!)

2013 Jupiter oppo 2007 Jupiter is a period when discontent with wealth or status is evident and discouraging comparisons (Speaker Boehner?) are made along with overblown efforts which impress no one.

2013 Sun oppo 2007 Pluto is not a good time for power plays, it's impossible when investigating to get to the bottom of situations, and ego-bruising conditions may abound for those in power.

2013 Jupiter oppo 2007 Pluto denotes a period of gross mismanagement, overrating conditions or people is a hazard that will cause regret, and contests of wills occur involving financial matters including taxes (IRS), debt, insurance (Affordable Care Act?), and inheritances.

Well, not much jolliness for our Full Moon weekend in June with these transits, is there? But of course as with all matters, Astrology brings to the table what no other system of analysis can bring: the element of Time so that we are assured that, after all, This Too Will Pass.


Astro-Note: there's another reason for my busy-ness this week: tomorrow a comprehensive 'Stars Over Washington Report' will be made available for electronic delivery, its topic: America's Solar Return 2013. The SR Report is 'good for' a year and I hope you'll consider ordering yourself a copy of this PDF report, suitable for printing! Watch this blog and my Twitter feed for details.

Wishing you all a Happy Weekend! Jude

Astrologer Says Double-Dip Recession in 2013 Unlikely

2013 Can Bring Financial Gains If Washington Plays Our Cards Right

by Jude Cowell

But will they? Well, the current stay of banker planet Jupiter in Airy Gemini will end in 2013 when the generous Jolly One enters Moon-ruled Cancer in June. As you know, Cancer is the sign of Business Savvy and Home Matters such as Real Estate and Jupiter is happily exalted there. Plus, America's natal Venus, Jupiter, and Sun are in Cancer in the 2--14-degree range, and our nation will experience its next Jupiter Return (or, 'Reward Cycle' as Noel Tyl terms it) on July 22, 2013. This is most often a time of good fortune, or at least it puts a spotlight on it as the 12-year cycle opens and our natal Venus-Jupiter-Sun trio is stimulated and expanded.

Note: as previously discussed on this blog, Jupiter in Gemini Stations Direct on January 30, 2013 and perhaps the current fiscal stand-off on spending and investment will resolve and matters will begin to edge forward after that date.

America's last Jupiter Return was a three-fer and was horribly botched by the awful SCOTUS-enabled presidency of Bush-Cheney, their two misguided wars fought on credit card (which hobble our economy still), the attacks of 9/11/01, the creation of Homeland Security, and several other schemes of a pyramid kind leading up to Financial Collapse 2008, the year of the low point of the financial cycle.

Jupiter returned to its natal degree of 5Can56 ('6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests"--and boy, do they!) on August 9, 2001, February 15, 2002, and March 15, 2002 (when using the 'Sibly' 5:10 pm chart for July 4, 1776) and it's the third conjunction affecting us now--until a new cycle opens on July 22, 2013.

Let's hope that in spite of anarchistic 'politicians' (Uranus in Aries = Utopians--Ebertin) attempting to bring America to her financial knees so that the 'baby' of government can be "drowned in a bath tub" (G. Norquist), that this time our Jupiter Return will be better and more honestly handled by Washington, and that public optimism (a function of Jupiter) is not misdirected or poorly placed--especially with transiting Pluto in Capricorn opposing our national Sun (the president), a time of no-compromise stalemates and major tests of willpower, as we see already.

With her analyses into financial cycles based primarily on the 18.6-year Nodal Cycle of the Moon, you may wish to check out an expert on the topic, financial astrologer Grace K. Morris, editor of the Astro Economics Stock Market Newsletter and her prognostication that a double dip recession is highly unlikely in 2013.

May the Jupiterian 'power of positive thinking' help things along for the US economy and thus, the world's, in 2013 for, as 'they' like to say--it's all about confidence!


"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do."

MarketPlace: Traders Use Financial Astrology (audio)

Remember the other day when we discussed the Fed, QE3, and inflationary Jupiter-Neptune? Well, today MarketPlace presents a revealing look at market traders who use Financial Astrology and the current Saturn square natal Neptune affecting the Fed's natal horoscope. This is the 'false hopes and promises' transit when deception, illusion, and limitations are part of the picture, at least until the transit passes.

Wonder to which international banking houses America's treasure was sent this time--and why? And what does the IMF know?

As old financier extraordinaire, J.P. Morgan (student and client of master astrologer Evangeline Adams) once famously said, "Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do."

Yet we may never know how many traders take advantage these days of the financial cycles described so well by Astrology since, as mentioned above, its use is often kept a big secret!

Newt Denies his Bohemian Grove attendance! (video); and Jupiter/Uranus

Playing dumb when confronted with the reporting of your attendance at Bohemian Grove rituals may make sense when you're desperate to play president. Here's Newt Gingrich being placed on the 'male-prostitute' spot by a gutsy young man (thanks, young man-- Newt's confrontation with the truth is priceless!)


For more info and videos concerning the annual gatherings amongst the Redwoods of California of political, business, and entertainment industry bigwigs (and hired servers)--a social affair where calling on the devil seems to be the order of the night, scroll a bit to this blog's Search Bar and type in 'Bohemian Grove' for various entries on this pagan conflagration of 'fire worshippers' who act as social tinkerers and 'leaders' when wearing business suits.

You know, some say that Russian mystic and artist *Nicolas Roerich, an adviser to President Franklin Roosevelt, led the White House under the auspices of 'Black Majick' and that if the American people had known what was really going on, FDR would have been ridden out of Washington on a rail, or worse.

Now I don't know how true the myth but the District's association with the Goat of Mendes gives me pause for wondering about evasive old FDR who took control of our nation at the same time that devilish Hitler rose to power...and both under the influence of the same Solar Eclipse, the 'Fascism Rising Eclipse' of Feb 24, 1933 @ 5Pis28--which conjoins President Obama's natal Chiron and tr Chiron 2012.)

Were AH and FDR both working toward a 'New World Order'? My suspicion is, Yes, each in his own way with both countries wanting to man the helm of Global Government. In the Eurozone, Germany now ascends monetarily while the US has been financially heisted and weakened--on purpose, thanks to the SEC, Wall Street, transnational bankers, rating agencies, and the Fed.

View the 1933 eclipse horoscope with its interlaced YODs of crisis and a few chart details here. Why, in 1933, the Fed was only 20 years old!

*Nicolas Roerich born October 9, 1874 St. Petersburg, Russia; at noon: Sun in mid-Libra, Moon 4Lib37 (or could be in later degrees of Virgo); Mercury in business-oriented, ruthless Scorpio; Venus 2Sag05 (conjoined by our last Solar Eclipse Nov 25, 2011 #@ 2Sag37--the 'Super Committee' eclipse), Mars 14Vir35 (Mars is in Virgo now indicating his Mars Return 2012), Jupiter 12Lib58 conj n Sun, Saturn 7AQ40 Rx, Uranus 14Leo28, Neptune 29Ari47 Rx (@ critical degree), Pluto 22Tau20 Rx (conjoined on May 28, 2000 by the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction = Pluto: attaining aims slowly but surely; violent changes or restrictions; immense efforts - Ebertin.)

Natal North Node (NN) 26Ari40 Rx conjoins his Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (PE) 26:24 which conjoin his natal Midas 26:03 and all are snugged between his natal Chiron 20Ari24 Rx, the Wound (so he was born during a US Chiron Return) and often-delusional Neptune...Neptune/NN = lack of community or team spirit.

Hmm. Reminds me of the uncooperative attitude of Republicans and DINOS on Capitol Hill (circa Jan 20, 2009--Jan 20, 2013) who do not need to be named here. (Note: Ebertin gives the Jup/Uran combo of energies on a negative level as: 'obstinate adherence to one's own principles from inherent opposition rather than from true conviction; magnifying or exaggerating everything'. As noted, for we know who the undermining jackasses are.)

Anyway, Roerich's PE falls into the 2 Old North Series: 'unfortunate news concerning relationships; a glum and difficult series bringing potentials for separation and the ending of unions, yet taking quick action may bring positive results.' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.) A Solar Eclipse last manifested in this series on July 1, 2000 @ 10Can15 which greatly affected US natal planets in Cancer, mainly Jupiter '6Can' (monetary policy) and the Sun '14Can' (the leader, or, leadership; the president.) In fact, this eclipse degree was triggered on July 1, 2011 by a Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12, the initial eclipse in a new series.

As for his financial expertise and advising of FDR on monetary policies, Roerich was born with the promise of lucky breaks and financial opportunities because a Jupiter/Uranus sextile (60 degr) attuned him to the financial cycles and peaks of Jupiter and Uranus (as timed by their sextiles and trines) of his day. The Jupiter/Uranus cycle is the "ultra-important" one when it comes to stock markets and business/monetary cycles, says Sybil Leek in her book, The Astrological Guide to Financial Success (1972.)

Jupiterian growth + Uranian change = peaks and fluctuations, with Uranus associated with Technology and Industry; their adventurous blend also indicates scientific discoveries and inventions, broadened horizons, and far-seeing plans and activities.

Not that the current opposition of societal planets Jupiter (growth, investment) and Saturn (restriction, loss, austerity measures) isn't important as well. But they sure are behaving stubbornly especially if we use them to represent Ds (Saturn usually but these days, Jupiter) and Rs (Jupiter traditionally, but these days, Saturn.) The Jupiter/Saturn opposition phase is "strongly recessive," says Sybil Leek. Can you feel it, even with Jupiter moved ahead into Earthy, practical Taurus and Saturn hanging back at the end of Airy Libra? Things are shifting now...

So Jupiter's growth function works well with Uranus' change function, a teamwork that denotes business peaks which may be clearly seen--not only with Astrology--but in stock market records which detail the approximately 3 1/2-year business cycle of Jupiter and Uranus (3.45 years actually.) Many traders know of the 3 1/2 year cycle yet few if any can explain the How or Why of it--unless Financial Astrology is employed for timing purposes.

("Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do." - J.P. Morgan Sr.)

The current monetary cycle as timed by the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Uranus began, of course, with the three-fer we experienced from 2010 to 2011 with their first meeting standing out due to its occurrence upon a World Point of Manifestation, the Aries Point, as you'll remember:

1. June 8, 2010 @ 00Ari18
2. Sep 19, 2010 @ 28Pis43
3. Jan 4, 2011 @ 27Pis02

In markets, Aries = war, weaponry, iron and steel, transport, policing-fire fighting-security services, surgery, adventurous enterprises, mining, oil drilling, and other Martian sectors; Pisces = oil and gas, oceanography, water travel, fisheries, footwear, drugs drugs and more drugs (including vaccines and contraceptives--in the news now), entertainment, art galleries, antiques, religion, mysticism, state bonds for civic development (Leek), and other Piscean sectors which include the military as does Aries.

Naturally, we may expect that market and economic issues will continue to need close attention during Spring 2012 as the Sun reaches Vernal Equinox (00Ari00:00) on March 20, 2012 and highlights this monetary/business cycle while forming a midpoint picture:

Jupiter/Uranus = Mar 20, 2012 Sun: far-sightedness; inventive minds; illumination of one's best position in any circumstance; great success (Ebertin; Tyl); incorporating new ideas (Munkasey.) Well, someone is doing okay, right?


Our current 'ultra-important' financial period: June 2010 + 3 1/2 years = end of 2013, early 2014; or, Jan 2011 + 3 1/2 years = mid-2014, so the parameters are: end of 2013 to mid-2014. Not being of a trading or speculating disposition, there's not a lot I plan do with this info personally but those who are planning ahead in their careers just now may be able to use the suggested periods as a 'far-seeing' financial guide for future expansion and reforms in Technology if in nothing else.

A Blog Note to my Readers: due to an upcoming relocation, my blogging time will continue intermittently until things settle down in early to mid-March. This will entail new tech equipment which I am looking forward to enjoying so please stay tuned for it seems that the broadening energies of Jupiter/Uranus may just knock upon my blogging door yet!

Global Astrology: October 2011 Economic Forecast now online

Just a heads-up for all appreciate an overview of current societal conditions as seen through the lens of planetary cycles and explained with a global perspective by mundane astrologer Theodore White. His October 2011 Forecast includes financial information and is accessible here.

Plus, thanks to Theodore, you'll spy my own Autumn Equinox 2011 analysis with its horoscope set for Washington DC, the place from which the American people should be able to expect effective government to issue from (especially with our tiresome tendency to boss around the governments of other nations) but which in the New Millennium has brought more trouble and grief rather than solutions, and more corruption than we once may have thought possible.

Now there are several reasons for this crashing turn of events including the desire of certain people to collapse our nation and rebuild it "better"--in their 'humble' opinions. Yet I suppose the old adage, 'If it ain't broke don't fix it' might apply if the breaking--and the people's suffering which results--weren't being perpetrated on purpose by plutonian operatives of a global crime syndicate, The Octopus, as NY Mayor John F. Hylan once termed it because its tentacles reached into every institution and agency--and in 2011, the corruption and its 'reach' are even deeper.

How Soon We Forget--At Our Peril, Turns Out

John Hylan once informed the American people that:

"The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as 'international bankers.' This little our government for their own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen...[and] seizes...our executive officers...legislative bodies...schools...courts...newspapers and every agency created for the public protection."

John Francis Hylan (April 20, 1868 - January 12, 1936), Mayor of New York City from 1918 to 1925.

And here's a link to a newspaper article with Hylan's warnings which displays an actual image of the article from February 17, 1933 and quotes Hylan as faulting the "utter selfishness of big bankers who have brought the world to the verge of collapse."

As the French often say, 'The more things change, the more they stay the same'. But they say it in French.


For more reading on economic topics through an astrological lens, you may wish to check out the Horoscope for 1929's Black Tuesday crash which was also orchestrated by big bankers and which saddled the world with the Great Depression. In October 1929, 'moneybags' planet Jupiter was retrograde but in Air sign Gemini, and not in Earthy money sign Taurus as The Great Benefic is now. Somehow the difference is not at all comforting for the global economy in 2012 and beyond. jc

Uranus (Youth Movement), Neptune (Floods), Gold/Silver 2011 (video)

Financial Astrology, Uranus/Neptune, Shifting Poles, old Henry Clay and youngish Rick Perry

by Jude Cowell

Here New Zealand astrologer Barbara Goldsmith gives her comprehensive view on 2011 events, financial and social conditions in a video presentation. First she goes over her 2011 predictions which have come to pass and it's a daunting list if you care to skip to the middle. I say this because we're all in process of experiencing these events of 2011 now and therefore may wish to avoid hearing them listed at this particular juncture.

Well, there are some moments when Astrology simply isn't needed, for we can hear about events in the news or peer onto our very doorsteps, can't we?

So the primary reason I'm publishing (belatedly--mea culpa!) Barbara's video on 2011 predictions in September is that around halfway through, she addresses the shifts of transpersonal (collective; outer) planets Uranus into fiery Aries and Neptune into its own watery sign of Pisces.

If you haven't viewed before, I hope you have 10 minutes to tune in. Plus, maybe like me you'll see that her bookshelves hold some of the same Astrology books as yours!

Barbara Goldsmith's predictions for 2012 will be useful now that we're entering the difficult period of Autumn 2011 into the oft-touted yet dreaded year of 2012. My fret is that the promised 'Paradigm Shift' will be purposely engineered by social tinkerers and Uranian chaos creators who are in process of collapsing the global financial system for their own rebuilding and control aims.

And although I don't like mentioning it, these potentially chaotic conditions could fulfill the ancient 'no one will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast' Biblical prophecy.

Is Neptune Holier-Than-Thou?

In her video, Barbara relates a stratification of society to Neptune in Pisces' desire for existence on a loftier plane and I have wondered (somewhere on this blog but with almost 3,000 posts, it's difficult to find mentions that don't have specific tags) if NASA's ISS and certain undersea capsules have been invented for Those Who Will Escape the Worst of Earth's coming travails until things settle down for their 'royal' emergence.

Thing is, no one born on Earth can escape karma for all must reap what they sow.

Futurist Uranus

Yet chaos-creating Chiron/Uranus types always keep handy escape hatches available for their exclusive use, you know.

If nothing else, my Capsule/Space Station as Escape Hatch theory shows you how deeply suspicious I can be of global corporatists and shady monarchs, doesn't it? ;p

Talk about plans with no prospects for fulfillment!

2012, 2012, and...2012

Another facet of the Paradigm Shift 2012 question is, of course, Earth's obvious physical changes (earthquakes, volcanoes, ice melting, all of which can be man-induced or encouraged through ecological assaults and unusually powerful weather events--HAARP? Hedron Collider? mad scientists!) These earth changes are cyclical--so are magnetic poles shifting? If more and more animals fly or migrate as if drunken by confused navigation systems, I'm guessing that could one small clue.

Speaking of mysterious events under the sea, here's a tidbit from April 2000 concerning the lost Henry Clay, named for a prominent and controversial US politician who is featured this weekend on C-SPAN's The Contenders.

With its spotlight on past presidential candidates who lost but "changed political history", my intention is to view all of The Contenders including the segment on Progressive Movement candidate Eugene Debs who helped champion the social improvements of the early 1900s, the ones that 2012 presidential candidate Rick Perry promises to abolish from high atop the perch of the Oval Office, a plan which to my dissenting American mind (a DAR persuasion peeking through!) should disqualify Mr. Perry from running for US President.

So I ask you: in what watery, upside down world can a secessionist, of all creatures, effectively govern as US president the United States of America?

Come on now! Perry makes it clear he's a divider, not a uniter.

Happy Campaign 2012, y'all.

Neptune to Our Solar Eclipse Degree 00Pis33

Yes, transit Neptune to 00Pis00 has simmered up a thick, murky broth for the American people to stew in, compliments of transpersonal forces which dissolve and undermine our nation as described on one level by Neptune's conjunction to America's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, circa 1776 (00Pis33.)

A repetition of America's PE manifested once again on July 11, 2010 (12 South Saros Series) and its flavors resonate directly with the BP-Deepwater Horizon Blowout of April 2010 which decimated our Gulf Coast region through corporate-instigated environmental terrorism. About 4 days after the eclipse occurred, BP announced a successful capping of the well--finally:

12S = 'successful outcomes to long term worries; a situation or an issue will at first seem worse, then clear with good outcomes', to paraphrase Bernadette Brady's Predictive Astrology.

(Historical Note: after 12S, the next Solar Eclipse in the Founders' era occurred on August 14, 1776 and actually describes the founding of America to perfection. It's the 13 North Series which speaks of 'breaking an already existing bond for the sake of large, ambitious group projects; initial separation then joint achievement'! (Brady.)

This hints to me that the completion of the signing of the Declaration of Independence on August 2, 1776 under the influence of 13N is an integral component embedded within our nation's identity, perhaps even more so than the July 4, 1776 date the Founders wanted us to celebrate as our national 'birthday'.

We do so slavishly, of course, with patriotic fervor and idolatry yet its seems that the Cosmos may have a slightly different calendar than mortal men! Is this one of the reasons some (possibly Astrology-informed) delegates waited until August to sign? (The 13N Series actually began on August 14, 1776 which resonates with the important new World cycle that started with America's founding.)

Traditionally, America relates to the world as a Water-Air, past v future Sun Can/Moon AQ personality blend, but the August 14, 1776 Solar Eclipse presents the US as a double-Air, idealistic, zealous-for-justice Sun Libra/Moon Libra nation!

Unfortunately for the populations of many countries, it's in 2011 and 2012 that eroding, nebulous, merging, self-deceptive, and often fraudulent Neptune softly stirs up 00Pis00/33 in the Tropical Zodiac, creating a karmic, watershed moment in World and US history as I suspect you may agree.

Ex: recently it's been reported that the Deepwater Horizon well is leaking again--that Neptunian erosion of the 'successful outcomes' which the July 2010 eclipse described in such hopeful terms. Of course, with media-loving Neptune's talent for confusion and deception, it remains to be 'seen' if the Macondo well is leaking or not.

All this and I didn't even mention transforming, sabotaging, destructuring Pluto in system-loving Capricorn, now creeped back into closer opposition to US natal Jupiter 5Can56...'6Can' = "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests." (Rudhyar; Jones.)

Hmmm...wonder if those cozy, plush nests they've protectively feathered are orbiting in Uranian space or perhaps secreted beneath a Neptunian sea?

Naturally, Winter Solstice December 21, 2012; plus, the January 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse containing strong issues of 'Balance of Power', as astrologer Celeste Teal titled this 13 North eclipse from the August 14, 1776 Series--the 'breaking of already existing bonds, then success' as mentioned above.

Is that a Rs v Ds 'Balance of Power'? Capitol Hill's tiresomely theatrical 'default'/'debt crisis' stalemate of August 2011 timed quarreling Mars in Cancer as it triggered the Jan 4, 2011 Solar Eclipse by opposing the eclipse degree (among his other contacts such as conjunctions to US natal planets @ 3--14 Cancer: Venus, Jupiter, and Sun.)

And since 13N manifested just after New Year's Day 2011, its influence is strongly and irrevocably imprinted upon the whole of Year 2011 and upon the US presidency because the eclipse's degree (13Cap47) opposes US natal Sun (leadership; the president.)

You know, I have to say this: the wispy 'American' sentiments of politicians like Rick Perry strike me as lukewarm at best and traitorous in essence when I consider the passion contained in statements such as this:

"Believe me, dear Sir: there is not in the British empire a man who more cordially loves a union with Great Britain than I do. But, by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America." -Thomas Jefferson, November 29, 1775

And the breaking of an already existing bond was less than one year away!

My fervent hope for America is that many of us now feel similarly about the lousy terms upon which ideologue GOPers propose to (again) misrule this nation. And if you agree, you cannot seriously consider sitting out the November 2012 presidential election. Seriously. Electing a president by default will not be an option.

A Goldman-Sachs natal chart, Scott Walker, and Financial Astrology

While preparing next week's article concerning the horoscope of the July 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse 9Can12 (it's a biggie falling amongst US natal planets in Cancer and spotlights an Earth Grand Cross which includes transit Pluto opposing said Cancerian planets), I feel that a heads-up is in order for those who may wish astrological information on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and his 'naked power grab' (HuffPo article link included), plus, a view of the IPO (initial public offering) chart for Goldman-Sachs (May 4, 1999) created by Financial Astrology expert Kaye Shinker of Astrological Investing.

Interestingly, the Goldman-Sachs natal chart has 25Can13 rising which conjoins US natal Mercury Rx which places US natal Pluto Rx in Capricorn in the House of Partnerships (7th H) - this highlights our nation's Mercury/Pluto opposition, an indicator of arrogance when challenged for the US government, and for GS.

Check out Scott Walker and Goldman-Sachs at Political Astrology 2010~2012 for the lowdown.

Sitting Bull and JP Morgan on America

Well, here's a voice from the past that hits our plutocracy squarely on its head:

"Hear me people: We now have to deal with another race---small and feeble when our fathers first met them, but now great and overbearing. Strangely enough they have a mind to till the soil and the love of possessions is a disease with them. They take their tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich and those who rule."

- Chief Sitting Bull

Source: Information Clearing House.

Speaking of austerity cuts for the poor: Cost of War in Iraq & Afghanistan $1,132,861,364,615.

Plus, as old J. P. Morgan (the Financial Astrology buff) once said, "Of all forms of tyranny the least attractive and the most vulgar is the tyranny of mere wealth, the tyranny of plutocracy."

Gerald Celente on gold prices (video); Eclipses 2010 - 2011

This just in bwo

Posted: 19 Oct 2010 04:06 AM PDT

Gerald Celente Celente’s summary of gold prices during the non-economic recovery, and where gold's going.

(Trends&ForecastsBlog) Gerald Celente believes that the stock market will crash before the end of 2010, gold will soar. When gold was at $275 per ounce in 2002, Celente said the price had bottomed and in 2004 forecast the beginning of the “Gold Bull Run.” Since that time, with pinpoint accuracy, he said when, why – and how high – gold would go. Gerald Celente sees huge opportunities in green healthy food, technology for the poor, and in rejuvenating the cities with quality architecture, Gerald Celente as always recommends gold Canadian dollar and the Swiss franc as hedges against the inflation.


Why, with his excellent timing skills and insights, I'd almost think Mr. Celente is a financial astrologer, or uses one such as Ray Merriman who authored The Gold Book.

Especially since the Lunar Eclipse of December 21, 2010 points toward market difficulties, perhaps a double dip recession, or a crash.

Then on January 4, 2011, there's a Solar Eclipse 13Cap39 which falls across the zodiac from America's natal Sun, the leader. In her book Eclipses Celeste Teal titles this eclipse 'The Balance of Power' which can relate to domestic and foreign difficulties for President Obama with more focus on business affairs (Cap.) If the expected take over of the House by Republicans and their shadow personalities, the Tea Partisans, occurs in November, the 'balance of power' will certainly be high on America's menu with more political gridlock, not less, on Capitol Hill.

For those who wish America to fail, this will provide a great boost.

The Solar Eclipse @ '13Cap' is in critical or crisis degree, adding to the 'crash' potential, plus the eclipse degree conjoins Fixed Star Manubrium, keyphrase: flaring heat with Sun-Mars vibes. This star indicates possibilities such as: overconfidence, courage, heroism, legal or domestic problems, blindness, fires, or explosions. In Horary Astrology Plain & Simple, Anthony Louis adds that Manubrium is 'good for sports and politics'.

However, I read the Solar Eclipse as falling even closer to the degree of Fixed Star Ascella 13Cap38 (a one-minute orb) which provides a Jupiter-Mercury influence: gains, good judgment, happiness, and influential friends. Perhaps this seeming disagreement between Manubrium and Ascella for the eclipse simply describes the mixture of good-bad which we always experience in life - or the rich getting richer while the rest of us do without.

And Mr. Celente sees 'huge opportunities' along with a possible crash by the end of the year - opportunities for those able to take them with left-over dregs for the underclass. Yes, the lamb-fleecing continues in Wall Street casinos!

Well, venerable Astrology brings its timing ability to the table along with descriptions of life's simultaneous and complex levels of existence. Yet it's the critical or crisis nature of both the Dec 21, 2010 Lunar Eclipse 29Gem21 and the Solar Eclipse of Jan 4, 2011 13Cap39 which may tell the financial tale by the end of the year and into what promises to be a difficult period for the world: 2011.

For 2011, after all, is the gatekeeper ushering us in to 2012.

Lord Monckton: no need for World Government (video)

Here is the first video installment of Lord Monckton speaking on October 14, 2010 concerning the global warming hoax which is a ruse meant to lead we-the-world-sheep into accepting the establishment of a One World Government which will include total control of the global banking system. The full series of this exclusive interview may be viewed here.

If you are American (dissenting or otherwise) - please note his remarks on the US Constitution and elected government which will turn extinct if global bankers have their way.

And guess who he thinks is a prime movers/shakers of the World Government agenda?

In the US, it's the banking industry! Surprised much?

Lord Monckton points to the world government agenda's long term existence as evidenced by the setting up of the Federal Reserve Bank, an idea big bankers and their pals hatched during secretive meetings held on
Jekyll Island, GA in 1910
(under cover of a 'duck-hunting expedition'!) and deemed to be triggered by the bankers' Panic of 1907.

Top financier J.P. Morgan took the lead within the 1910 - 1913 script of fear, and the subsequent solutions are eerily similar to Financial Collapse 2008 and its resulting legislation meant to 'improve' the way things are done in America's corrupt financial industry. (Yet US consumers' lack of confidence in our banks and in Wall Street markets has not been addressed, as you know, since no bandits, robbers, or vandals will be serving prison time, it seems.)

Curiously enough, during the Panic of 1907, President Teddy Roosevelt was said to be on...wait for it...a duck-hunting trip in Louisiana at the time. Yes! Ducks were being hunted all around though American consumers seem to have fit that bill even better. So perhaps we should consider the Sabian Symbol relating to the topic to see if it applies; it's in the Big Money sign of Scorpio, well known for its secrets and betrayals...

'22 Scorpio' = "Hunters Starting Out for Ducks"...ENTERPRISE...

positive expression: a complete lack of personal frustration and a constant refinement of special and practical skills in the approach to daily problems;

negative/unconscious/shadow side: a callous exploitation of all life.

(The Sabian Symbols in Astrology, Dr. Marc Edmund Jones.)
Ah, yes, that most American of all enterprises taken to its nth degree: callous mortgage selling, foreclosure processing, sub prime vulturing, other banking practices, and in Wall Street trading, a rigged casino if there ever were one.

And now, to knit the ends of this post together into a wintry neck scarf of paraphrased synchronicity, here's one of J. P. Morgan's most famous quotes:

"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do."

Touche, Mr. Morgan. Touche.

Gandhi's good question and JP Morgan's Astrology

"What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?" Gandhi

A while back I posted another of Gandhi's quotes along with a smidgeon of details on his natal chart. Included is an excerpt from the 1922 book by Senator Richard Pettigrew Triumphant Plutocracy which you may find enlightening.

Pluto's realm of plutocracy, the form of government we have here in America and have always had, is co-ruled and more fully described by the pairing of Chiron with Pluto. The current Chiron/Pluto midpoint is necessarily conjoined to the transiting Neptune/Pluto midpoint because Neptune and Chiron have been conjunct of late. Both midpoints have been conjoining the position of our national Sun (leader) off and on since before Barack Obama took office.

Might this describe pressure on the president or his collusion with them? With Goldman-Sachs and Clinton agents surrounding him in the White House, it could be either way - probably alternating! My suspicion is that White House tenures for Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner were part of the prerequisite for Mr. Obama's term in the Oval Office.

In other words, without them, he wouldn't be there at all (in more way$ than one.)

Robber Barons Ride Again - well, their biological and ideological spawn do, anyway

Now you remember Neptune/Pluto as the Robber Baron duo whose Great Conjunction/s of 1891 and 1892 time the rise of the great industrialists, oil titans, and corporations. President Teddy Roosevelt put a damper on their style for a while by using US law to bust them up in the early 1900s yet they've continued to thrive and multiply all the same with the US Congress turning on ordinary Americans in favor of corporations.

And recently SCOTUS put its finger on the Scales of Justice by joining the uplift-corporations parade - as if the political playing field weren't skewed against we-the-people already.

Insidious Neptune/Pluto

Separately both Neptune and Pluto relate to oil, gas, things hidden in the ground, and to the tunnels and caves it takes to reach them - in the earth and under the sea.

Here are the dates and degrees of Neptune/Pluto's great hook-ups:

1. August 2, 1891 @ 8Gem38
2. November 7, 1891 @ 8Gem19
3. April 30, 1892 @ 7Gem42

Nuclear degrees, yes, and Pluto's 1930 discovery heralded the atomic age.

But also this area of the zodiac is where asteroid Midas currently traverses (though 'he' just recently reached past 9Gem) and we see how things are playing out for the legendary, archetypal gold-hoarder Midas who has cornered the market on every natural resource possible, along with major gold manipulations.

Is it a coincidence that Midas now inhabits the area of the Great Conjunction/s of Neptune/Pluto's oil barons?

Not if you think 'there are no accidents' or that 'things happen for a reason', as is commonly said. And you don't have to delve very far into Astrology to discover the special branch known as Financial Astrology where markets are timed by the As Above, So Below principles of the ancient art. Astrologers who possess financial expertise make big bucks consulting with investors and the financial wizards of Wall Street.

"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do," are the famous words of old J. P. Morgan, a client and student of astrologer Evangeline Adams, the Adams family descendant who popularized Astrology in NYC at the turn of the 20th century. Seems her talent in this area was inherited.

Well, here's a link to a post I wrote on the Neptune/Pluto-era magnate's natal chart (w/ chart image, rated accurate) and get ready because you'll find that J. P. was born with Pluto, the Dragon guarding the world's riches, conjunct (of all things) Midas!

And how does America and our financial system fit into this picture? Snugly, with our nation's natal Uranus, planet of revolution, rebellion, independence, and genius positioned in 1776 @ 8Gem55.

Apparently it's the universe that's in collusion!

CFR and NWO videos and the Jupiter/Saturn cycle

Can't think why I've never posted this 10 minute video montage of people in their own words about shoving through a New World Order, most speakers for, few against.

If you don't have 10 minutes to spare, go about 2 minutes in and you'll see what all the fuss is about with Professor Carol Quigley's assessment. Hold on though for Bush Sr, Bill Clinton, and Ron Paul, among others. As the Illuminati might prefer to tout, this is an 'enlightening' and 'illuminating' video.

You know, it would suit me well if all political candidates for all offices the world over were henceforth expected by voters and constituents to express where they (the candidates) stand on the subject of the known agenda of a 'one world government', 'New World Order', 'new economic order', 'new world economic order', 'New Millennial Age', or whatever fancy label the psychotic totalitarianism promoters wish to hide behind and impose upon an unwilling world.

If the agenda's proponents are so proud and confident of its merits, we-the-people (and people of other nations) should be told who stands for what and whose interests our 'leaders' in truth represent. For in a 'New World Order' we can be certain the policies of such 'representatives' will never act in the best interests of the people.

But the people would need the mainstream media to cooperate in getting out such info, wouldn't they?

Funny Story There

This second video is 4 mins 33 seconds with information on the founding of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), an entity which VP Joe Biden is said to rule. (Plus, Biden is proud to be a 'Zionist' he says and I believe him on that score.) Quigley's quote is featured in this video, too.

Anyone concerned about the turn the US media has taken (newspaper shut-downs, closings, mergings, etc) since the Millennium began may wish to rip off the mask of the CFR and peer into the raptor's gaze...and surprise! We have old JP Morgan to thank for being a catalyst in setting up the organization which gave control and centralization of the US media a big ole' NWO boost starting way back in 1917!

Now you know that any bloggy mention of JP Morgan, Sr inspires me to add my personal favorite of his famous quotes because it concerns his golden-touch money-making ability and his tutelage by the premiere astrologer of his day, Evangeline Adams (yes, of that Adams family):

"Millionaires don't use Astrology, billionaires do."

Girl, you know it's true: financial cycles and planetary cycles are sympatico!

Which is why (as mentioned in a previous post) the current Jupiter/Saturn opposition, the culmination phase of their Great Conjunction on May 28, 2000 @ '23Taurus', has an intimate connection with the timing of what's going on with global stock markets now as the principles of Jupiterian expansion and increase stand off against the restriction and control principles of Saturn.

Plus, on the political level in the US, their opposition portends trouble due to completely divergent views - or, a well-timed partnership - between Democrats (Sat) and Republicans (Jup). Yes, it's going to be a long, hotly contested summer.


Here's a previous post concerning JP Morgan which links you to JP's natal chart and 2008 transits to it.

Plus, I've just discovered that Linda Schurman provides excellent analyses on financials using planetary cycles on her Soothsayer website.

Financial Astrology 2009 - 2010: Saturn, Jupiter-Neptune

Master Financial Astrologer Ray Merriman has an article on Saturn's Realities and Jupiter/Neptune Hopes that takes us from 2009 into 2010.

Since financial cycles and astrological cycles may be understood in tandem and one used as a magnifying glass to read the other, I recommend Mr. Merriman's article to you, especially since the current media attention seems focused more on Jupiter/Neptune's dreams and grand schemes than on Saturnian practicalities and realism.

2009, year of the Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Neptune. This speculating and possibly religious pair's third and final conjunction will be on Dec 21, 2009 @ 24AQ18, conj US natal Moon (the people.) Shall I type out the midpoint picture this forms one more time? Okay.

Jup/Nep = US n Moon: an emotional swoon; going with the wind; dreaminess deceives; becoming involved in speculation (I know - we've been doing that for years, that's a big part of the problem - sheeple to the slaughter); little sense of reality (engrossing new films and TV shows help divert us; plus, power politics played in front of the cameras); losing oneself in plans; instability; wastefulness. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

2009 is also the year of transiting Saturn's late August-early September visit to America's Neptune in Virgo, sign of Health, Work, and Service (which includes our police and military forces.) This is the 'grim reality' transit - but everything Saturn *changes, for change he does, is necessary for owning up to truth, and for lessoning us into compliance with the way things really are.

"All good things must come to an end," was undoubtedly dictated by Saturn, old Cronos Mercury, **The Scribe.

But Washington, Wall Street and the gold-encrusted world banks are fighting having their culpabilities and weaknesses exposed, as Saturn always insists upon. Destructuring, transformative Pluto the saboteur is Rx again and in the first degree of Saturn-ruled Capricorn which adds to a general sense of doom, and that fated, karmic reaping-what-we-sow vibe.

Thing is, it was mainly the uppercrust who sowed sorriness, and the common folk are doing the reaping of the power elite's frauds and faulty thinking.

The good news is that Saturn-to-Neptune has the magical ability to bring dreams (Neptune) into Saturnian reality and form, so my wish is that it's Saturn the Grizzly Wizard coming along to create new jobs and opportunities which are more stable and long lasting than any dream we have previously imagined.

Our American character's Neptunian dreams and ideals are of a practical Virgoan nature, after all.

I don't think a decent job (Saturn) is too much to expect (Neptune)!


*One of the caps Saturn wears is The Time Keeper. He doesn't wear it jauntily either, but he does keep a stopwatch in his hand.

**Mercury/Saturn is 'the signature of the professional writer' as Noel Tyl informed me when consulting on my natal chart a few years back. jc

NYSE: natal horoscope and the Up day of May 29, 2009

Thirsty for financial news (however bubbly) that doesn't suck?

US Stocks Rally, Capping 3-Month Advance for the S&P 500 by Rita Nazareth at Bloomberg News has all manner of fuzzy news concerning Friday's rally on Wall Street.

Seems the S&P 500 was friskin' around the floor Friday like a newborn philly, while the final half-hour of trading (the Bloomberg article cites the minutes from 3:30 pm to 4:03 pm edt (May 29, 2009, NYC) for the 'action time' and it is very refreshing to read a definite time for one who sets up Astrology charts - the final half-hour displayed a sparkle of positive activity and...gains were made.

In her article, Rita Nazareth makes no mention of this past Tuesday, May 27's Great Conjunction of Jupiter (money; expansion; largess; joviality) and Neptune (expansion through seepage; mergings; inspiration; undermining conditions; deception; fraud; lies) but why would she in a financial news article?

May 27 was the first of their three conjunctions, and most fortunately for you, you understand the inflationary implications of a new cycle of Jupiter/Neptune beginning now. The rest of 2009 is marked with a heady scent as their cozy tango in the glow of Neptune's candlelight haze will be completed in December. Yet their synergistic perfume will linger in the air into 2010, to be overcome off and on by other fragrances, some pleasant, some...well...stinky.

You see, the NYSE (May 17, 1792, 7:52 am lmt (not certain where the time came from but it's in use quite a bit - 'under the Buttonwood Tree' and all that, NYC) had its Pre-Natal Eclipse Series manifest once again on August 1, 2008 at '10 Leo' - the calamitous Beijing Olympics Eclipse, in fact, with horrific earthquake following, markets in turmoil (also affected by the Lunar Eclipse of August 16, 2008), and financial confidence generally dissipating into thin air.

The August 2008 Solar Eclipse falls in the 10 South Series: 'breaking out of a very negative situation where no hope can be seen to a space containing more options; a worry suddenly clears; a solution is shown by the cosmos and must be taken up without delay.' (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)

And off the top of my head I know three entities with natal Mercury at '10 Leo': George W. Bush, the Republican Party, and Alberto Gonzales. Perhaps the 2008 Capitol Hill Theater season performed during the presidential campaign, with its mummery of a 'financial crisis' or 'meltdown' made dramatic by their 'must rush back to Washington to save the entire banking system' schtick - were expressions of the above-described Eclipse influence.

And admittedly the 'meltdown' could have come from US-based opertives or from abroad bwo system hack attacks: transiting Uranus (electronics; technologies) crossing the NYSE's natal Midheaven of late (Mc = 23Pis21), from the 'foreign lands' 9th house into the 10th house of Career and Public Standing. Uranus in Pisces has a difficult time staying successfully hidden as Pisces prefers while being the planet of lightening, for cryin' out loud...aka The Awakener.

And you know that natally, NYSE has a Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Airy Libra, don't you? At 22Lib57 Rx and 27Lib42 Rx respectively; this is the degree area of two Fixed Stars of success: Arcturus and Spica. Jup/Nep's penchant for speculating is well-placed in NYSE's natal 4th house (Foundation.)

The recent Mercury retrograde period has affected NYSE's natal Mercury tremendously with n Mercury 23Tau50 Rx. Mercury's Rx condition gave three passes to natal Mercury resulting in a three-fer Mercury Return: April 23; May 25 Rx; and June 4, 2009.

Natal Sun is also in 8th house of Debt, Credit, Insurance, Shared Resources, etc at 27Tau12, and this Sun/Mercury degree area covers two nasty, hard to control Fixed Stars: Algol and Capulus.

So on Friday, May 29, 2009 at 3:30 pm edt when numbers began bouncing Up, Sun 8Gem33 was conjoined to transiting Midas, of gold-hoarding fame...and at the end of the 8th house just before the 9th cusp. Mercury 22Tau56 Rx was in 8th house as well, and at the degree '23Tau' of the Great Conjunction of the Societal Planets, Jupiter and Saturn (May 28, 2000 - a cycle that relates directly to markets)...'23Tau': 'A Jewelry Shop Filled with the Most Magnificent Gems.'

And Jup/Nep has a 20-year cycle so we're still in it - they're past the trine and are heading for opposition, a tug of war between Jupiter's expansion and Saturn's restriction.

This Mercurial triggering of 2000's Jup/Sat conjunction gives a midpoint picture to, perhaps a meeting (Mercury) took place relating to the plans of May/June 2000 (Jup/Sat - which reminds us of the dot com bubble and a housing bubble inflating even then.)

Jupiter/Saturn = Mercury: a search for variety and change; studying hard, asking the right questions; the desire to make changes; a journey; a fortunate separation. (Buh bye, Mr. Bank of America man - resigning before the sheriff shows?)

Yes, if Wall Street gentry admitted they (or those in their employ) use Astrology as did old J.P. Morgan, some of their secrets might be apparent thus providing a little pre-warning for we-the-unwary. Or then we'd be wary, but that wouldn't sex up the high-stakes game enough for those who are accustomed to playing a rigged house where they always come out the ultimate winners.

MarketPlace features Astrology 12.31.08

Today MarketPlace turned to Astrology for answers about what's going on with the economy.

Pluto in Capricorn and what it means to society and the transformation of markets and banking - never thought I'd hear such analysis on PRI's MarketPlace!

But it's New Year's Eve so if this is a sign of a leaf turning over or a resolution surfacing for the new year, I like what they're doing with the place...MarketPlace.


Note: above link is to a brief article I wrote which contains a link to today's MarketPlace feature on Astrology - text or audio is available.

Note2 to Jilly: have seen coal sludge spill chart for Dec 22, 2008, 1 am, Kingston, TN. Forgot earlier today when I replied to you that it's New Year's Eve so I'll post on this interesting chart asap. Thanks for the spur, Jilly! jude

A good Financial Astrology resource

Thanks to my association with I have an astrology friend, Resti Santiago, who practices as a financial astrologer and authors a blog with a refreshing world view which may be of interest to you.

Based in the Philipines, Resti uses Financial Astrology to discuss economic topics such as gold, equity, oil, and the currency market.
Having just read his last several articles I may confidently recommend them to you.

On Oct 7 Resti wrote about the soaring demand for gold coins and how US and Canadian mints have run out. In fact, the US Mint has stopped their production and will not mint them through the rest of 2008. Resti provides useful links within each article for further reading.

Recent birthday boy (Sept 29), Austrian economist and anti-Keynesian, Ludwig Von Mises, is discussed as well along with Resti's valuable insights concerning America's Bailout scheme and its lack of 'bounce' with world markets.

(With transiting Jupiter still opposing US natal and Bush's natal Sun, as I've stated previously, no one is impressed with America's efforts for now.)

Von Mises is the one who informs us that, "Depression is the aftermath of credit expansion," which makes you wonder how Greenspan and Bernanke could have remained unaware of the fact. (Actually, lack of awareness of such common sense principles isn't their problem, imo.)

So if you've room for one more bee in your financial bonnet, please read Resti's analyses of WaMu's failure and Paulson's plan which is being affected by the current phase of Mercury Rx and by Murphy's Law - and find out, if you don't know already, what DGCX stands for.

Hint: the 'D' stands for one of the world's up-and-coming economic centers, Dubai.

IndyMac Bank run of July 14, 2008

A previous post The Fed's Jupiter Return Dec 2008 has been updated concerning Monday's run on the IndyMac Bank of California and I thought you might be interested esp since there's been a major triggering by Saturn to the chart of Black Tuesday, Oct 29, 1929.

Week of July 14 in Financial Astrology

Financial Astrology: Week of July 14 has been published with links to Ray Merriman's excellent articles if you're interested in tracking or learning more about financial cycles and the upcoming mash up.

Mr. Merriman relates the now forming Saturn/Uranus opposition to financial cycles which are highly unstable now, to the Fed, and to the possible presidencies of a D or an R president so check out the work of an excellent financial astrologer who has his finger in the pulse of our falling dollar.

There's still a pulse? you say...barely!

NYSE and its Solar Eclipse Series 2008

An hour before the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange this morning, Fed chairman Ben Bernanke made his well-timed move to lower the discount interest rate that banks use when loaning each other monies and he extended the lending time from the traditional overnight to 30 days.

The DOW moved up by closing bell to 13,079 but was down 1.2% for the week.

Owning a 1972 copy of Sybil Leek's The Astrological Guide to Financial Success, I give here her 2 cents' worth on the illusion of credit and the daftness (my word) of living beyond one's means.

The unstable illusions begin with nebulous Neptune's entry into Scorpio, sign of Big Business, which occurred approximately March 1956 until 1970 while making some reconnaisance back into Libra (appr Oct '56--June '57.)

Here is Ms. Leek in her own words from 1972:

If any planet has an affinity toward inflation it is Neptune, and those who associate it with dreamlike qualities may wake up to find they have had nightmares.

Neptune in Scorpio is concerned with the mass of people being encouraged to live beyond their means. (Neptune) is a most insidious planet, tempting and then mocking those who fall for its whimsical ways. I regard it as a symbol of a false economic situation which has rapidly become a way of life for many Americans since it began to transit the dark, turgid starfield of Scorpio.

Inflation (has had) its heyday during the transitting of Neptune in Scorpio since 1956. This plus heavy governmental deficits point to the possibility of a serious financial panic between now and 1973 unless some ingenious brains begin to plan toward establishing a balance between wages and buying power (she must be rolling over in her grave during Bush's unending, drunken-sailor term in office.) #

Guess this means that the ingenious brain of Bernanke and his compadres are planning to establish a balance yet today it proved to be between banks and their use of their customers' money. We'll see if it amounts to anything of value to anyone but the elite private bankers of the world--or just another example of who-do-that-voo-doo? you do.

So I searched the natal and progressed charts with transits today of the NYSE (May 17, 1792; 7:52 am LMT; NYC) and the most 'action' I found was:

*Solar Arc Directions (SA)...Mars to natal Moon 18Ari39 in 10th house: strong drive to fulfill needs, to "let it fly"; disruption; hyperactivity.

SA Jupiter to natal Mercury 23Tau50: legal issues; travel; intellect.

SA Neptune to n Sun (actually in effect for almost one year now): hypersensitivity; deception; illegality; inspiration; possible spiritual rationalizations.

SA Mc to n Jupiter/Neptune (in conj natally, 4th house): a visionary; a fortune hunter; a speculator, philanthropist, spendthrift, or a squanderer; harm or damage through thoughtlessness.

SA Pluto to n Ic/Mc: professional developments are life-significant; dramatic changes of perspective are practically assured; separations; a life-milestone.

The midpoint of natal Mars (18Vir43--which the Sept 11, 2007 Eclipse will trigger) and natal NN = SA Pluto...

Mars/NN = Pluto: others must "get on the train" or be left behind; the performance of joint record achievements; an enforced separation in a partnership or union. This picture will be exact in about 2--3 years.

Then there's the loss, cruelty, and hardship of natal Saturn/Pluto midpoint which is being stimulated by transiting, disruptive, tech-savvy Uranus.

Sat/Pluto = Uranus: ability to make sudden decisions in the most difficult circumstances; sudden acts of violence; an attack regardless of potential losses; brutal efforts to start a new order.

Is the market's recent volatility and subsequent liquidity infusions--plus today's bank reacharound--part of the globalist NWO plans? Or are their financial systems being hacked to death by tech-savvy robbers? How about some of all of the above?

(UPDATE 2.2.08: think France!)

On August 1, 2008 the Solar Eclipse Series in which the NYSE was 'born' manifests once again at 9Leo32...we find that degree in at least three places, the natal charts of: George W. Bush, Alberto Gonzales, and the Republican Party.

Here are some interpretations of the degrees of 8, 9, and 10 Leo from Adriano Carelli.

NYSE's Prenatal Eclipse (PE) is in the 10South (10S) Series which Brady's Predictive Astrology gives as: breaking out of a very negative situation in which no options or hope can be seen; a worry that has been plaguing may suddenly clear and the solution must be taken up without too much delay.

Rose Lineman's Your Prenatal Eclipse says that a Leo
Solar Eclipse indicates a need for vigorous resolve in tackling problems--halfway measures will not succeed. Vainglory, pomposity, and other negative Leonine traits are stumbling blocks to correction of karmic issues.

I might add that the Prodigal Son which is associated with the sign Leo may have some connection with the issues in this Series which will be surfacing in 2008. This Eclipse will fall in NYSE's natal 2nd house of money, values, and earning of the 'money houses'...and last occurred on July 22, 1990.

The Initial Eclipse of any Series is telling...this one: March 10, 1179 (Old Style) at 26Pis01. Some flavors from that Eclipse are angry quarrelling; a demanding nature; outbursts; quick mood changes; valid instincts; and/or: any alternative seems inappropriate; thoughts don't know where to go; separating from the issues.

Sounds like a mixed bag, doesn't it? Such is life.

So with NYSE's natal Pluto 23AQ31 having been recently opposed by tr Saturn (control and restriction) there's been an air of embattlement in which past control is threatened by future--or current--takeovers...authority challenges power.

Hmmm...perhaps I should take a closer look at Rupert Murdoch's natal chart.

Okay, here is my chance to close with a favorite quote from financier and robber baron extraordinaire, J.P. Morgan:

Millionaires don't use astrology, billionaires do.

Oh yeah? Then they've seen the crap coming for a long long time.
