A Tapestry Blog of Astrology, Politics, and Social Concerns

Astrology of AIG, BofA, Madoff, and Ponzi

Although this reluctant astrologer has dabbled with Financial Astrology – especially in the last two or three years – it is a very detailed and specialized branch of the Art so I wisely refer you to one of the best online sources for insights into the current climate:
Neptune Cafe.

If you’re an astrologer or a reasonably informed follower of it, you probably have found Michael O’Reilly’s site and writings before now.

The link above is noted here for its coverage of 2008’s econo-crisis and contains articles from Dec 2008 through March 2009, a key time frame in the meltdown.

Along with founding horoscopes for AIG, Bank of America, and others, you’ll find the natal charts of Bernard Madoff and Charles Ponzi (both charts set for noon since their birth times are unknown), two men who curiously were born with Mercury Rx square Pluto. Madoff’s Mercury/Pluto square is from Aries to Cancer, Ponzi’s from Aquarius to Taurus…one an originator of what we call the ”Ponzi scheme’, the other a notorious current-day disciple.

When the thinking processes of *Mercury conflict with powerful, subversive, yet coping Pluto in square aspect (90 degrees = blockages, obstacles but gives dynamic tension toward action) a deep dynamic is set up indicating one who may communicate harshly thus arousing bitterness in others, and who rarely feels obligated to anyone. Extremes of behavior are common with a Merc/Plu square, and self-control must be developed with maturity.

Naturally fearless, this individual can demonstrate an astounding lack of common sense in dangerous situations while he takes unnecessary risks just to prove how courageous he really is. Professions that involve hazzards are desired such as: research and development, chemistry, medicine or pathology, or crime detection.

‘Crime detection’?!

Yes, for with Astrology’s AC-DC tendencies, we see that with Madoff and Ponzi, the energy can flow in either direction (with Bernie serving a 150-year sentence now.)

A person with a Merc/Plu square prefers to avoid reality, a trait that is perhaps ‘helpful’ when mounting massive frauds perpetrated upon society. The aspect shows one who may disregard such things as safety precautions and has a tendency to make more errors in judgment than the average person – especially when it comes to handling large sums of money!

Cunning schemes may be used in obsessive fashion so that other people’s lives are arrogantly re-shaped in some way (wiping out their finances, in this case) and use of violence is also a possibility as is the ridicule from society which may follow underhanded Merc/Plu activities that have brought notoriety upon both their heads.

As for AIG and Bank (Robbers) of America, I leave you to sip your coffee at the excellent Neptune Cafe!

*Fleet-footed Mercury also rules commerce and trade, and Pluto’s alias is Hades, god of the Underworld and crime.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
