Is US now in financial Ring of Fire?

As you know, it burns burns burns, the Ring of Fire.

And who may we thank for frying us? Wall Street, Big Industry, and…the US Congress which enabled the progressive, long-planned economic collapse and is still financially benefiting from it.

Can EU cope with national bankruptcies?

An article in Der Spiegel asks, Can the Euro Zone Cope with a National Bankruptcy? and contains information concerning the economic woes of Greece and the possiblility that they may spread to other countries in the PIIGS group – Portugal, Ireland, Italy, and Spain (Greece being the ‘G’, of course.)

Before the euro was forcefully instituted in 1999, economist Milton Friedman predicted its demise in 10 years because it would not survive its first crisis. That time has apparently arrived on schedule (almost as if Friedman was ‘in on’ the timing of economic collapse 2008, si? Or using Astrology’s financial cycles for timing as did J. P. Morgan!)

Of course, if you’re like me and think that the economic collapse has been engineered by a global power elite with world domination plans, Greece’s economic troubles are no surprise. To set up a common currency like the euro among disparate nations which have no common economic policy seemed daft to me pre-1999 but they shoved it through it anyway. Well, I must not know what I’m talking about, thought I – no economist or financial expert here (in spite of having a natal Jupiter/Saturn trine!)

Now I never gloat over other people’s miseries, but I do think the NWO script is involved in the economic problems of Greece and of the other PIGGS which are the southern EU nations (aka, ‘Club Med’ which were weaker economies from the beginning vs the northern EU nations which may be called upon to bail out their over-indebted brothers.)

Well, perhaps it’s a race from now on as to which area of the world economy will be ‘collapsed’ or crashed first: North America or Europe. The article states that the euro is now less stable than the US dollar, British pound, or Japanese yen and I’m racking my peabrain to remember what was being promoted pre-1999 concerning the ‘brilliance’ of forcing the euro upon the populations of Europe.

I do remember that Ireland was a hold-out yet now the Emerald Isle is in the euro-soup, too, and it seemed to me then that a future global collapse was being made possible – as we now see from the dizzy vantage point of teetering upon the “abyss.”

Whatever was promoted then, the euro’s much-touted brilliance is fading fast in 2010. Therefore, my best hopes remain as always with the good people of Europe just as they remain with the American people – all of whom deserve a lot better than our so-called ‘leaders’ are currently delivering as they work, not on our behalves, but on behalf of implementating a New World Order which apparently necessitates their gleeful sacrifice of our families, futures, and fortunes.

Read IRS building crasher’s suicide letter

Joseph Stack, the man who airplaned into the IRS building in Texas, left a suicide letter for ‘Big Brother IRS man’ and you may read it if you wish. It covers a lot. See if you can find anything he says in the letter that isn’t true. I haven’t so far.

Except for the part about violence being “the only answer.”

A 2nd opinion on the Spring EQ 2010 horoscope

Since 2007 I have posted on this blog concerning equinox and solstice charts but for the March 20 Spring Equinox 2010 horoscope, I’ve used Stars Over Washington.

You may have heard by now that the weekend of the Aries Ingress (Sun 00Aries00) – aka, Spring Equinox – will be a very busy one in our nation’s capital for multiple Anti-War protests are planned. Hopefully, demonstrations of our displeasure with Washington will be effective yet safe for all participants.

So do click to read a second analysis written by one of SO’W’s regular readers, a young astrologer named Jonathan W, who has interesting things to say about the 2010 Ingress chart and the direction of our nation.

Obama meets Lama w/ Chiron conj Neptune Feb 18 2010

President Obama plans to meet with the Dalai Lama on Thursday, February 18, 2010, unless I misunderstand their intention or someone’s schedule changes.

Perhaps this is only a political mystery play to mask the real deal – but the White House is said to be in refusal mode over cancelling the get-together (which is probably Not to be a Brewskyfest w the Prez) so I’m having a brief peek at the charts for that date from 12:00 am est to 11:59:59 pm, and using a chart set for noon…the spiritual and mystical duo, Chiron and Neptune, are conjoined once again, with ‘hierophant-guru-shaman-yogi-professor-moneybags’ Jupiter 7Pis23 near Venus 9Pis01. Is money on the table?

North Node, a point of encounter, is @ critical or crisis degree, 20Cap18, leaving this Dragon’s Tail to swish about at its opposite degree 20Can18, also a critical degree. If current world leaders are desiring to bring the planet to a point of world war, they’re doing an excellent job of it these days – and it’s not as if it hasn’t been done before.

Chartwise, from the looks of things, relationship breakups and the June 2004 Venus Transit degree ’18Gem’ (occurring during the G-8 Summit on Sea Island, GA) are in focus; @ Noon the ASC = ’18Gem’ = “Two Chinese Men Speaking Chinese in a Western Crowd.”

Another interesting factor at Noon of Feb 18, 2010 (White House):

Sun/Moon = Uranus 25Pis05: sudden developments; possible breakup in relationship (possibly Tibet and China yet that’s old news so – Dalai Lama and Obama?); intensification of independence within relationships.

(Midpoint pictures: Noel Tyl.)

Disruptive Uranus and the 11th cusp of Groups and Associations are conjoined @ Noon @ ’26Pis’ = “A New Moon That Divides Its Influence” and we just had a New Moon on Feb 13, 2010 @ ’26AQ’ conjunct US natal Moon; is the US dividing her loyalties (to the extent that America can be said to have loyalties) between China and Tibet? It’s an old argument, that’s for cetain, US involvement or no.

Yes, the possibility of ‘intensification of independence’ sounds more like Tibet’s desire for independence from the Mother Country, doesn’t it? But with transiting asteroid Nemesis 21Gem03 (‘unbeatable foe; divine retribution’) rising in the Noon chart – and conjunct US natal Mars simultaneously – I don’t personally like the sound of it, do you? For the sake of World Peace, I mean, which is my continual concern for everyone, my own descendants included.

Then there’s the transiting Moon/Saturn midpoint conjunct US natal Sun (‘the leader’) on Feb 18, 2010…

Moon/Saturn = Sun: sobering times; enforced controls; possible separation in relationship (there it is again.)

And ‘sobering times’? Oh yeah. That.

At Noon, President Obama’s natal ASC degree ’19AQ’ (in his ‘7:24 pm’ AHST birth chart; August 4, 1961 Honolulu, Hawaii) forms a couple of midpoint pictures which may be of interest…as usual with midpoint pictures ‘any, all, or none may apply’…

Tr Mercury/Neptune = n ASC: potential overreaction to others; being exploited. (Or with Politics, perhaps it’s a mutual exploitation.)

Tr Mercury/Mc = n ASC: change brewing; losing contact with others.

Feb 18’s ‘Moon @ Noon’ conjoins/reflects US natal Chiron (the wound; the wounded) in Aries, sign of the pioneer and warrior, which may be whispering to us that America’s strength is wounded and our politicians have been seemingly promoting and engineering this national wounding for years now, bankrupting our Treasury ‘in order’ to police the world at our considerable expense (and collapse America in the bargain.)

Well, we don’t need Astrology to tell us that America’s soaring eagle has a broken wing or two. Plus, her tail feathers are on the ragged side, aren’t they? That ‘phoenix vs eagle’ thing is for the birds, imo.

And understandably, China has her own ideas for controlling the world, part of the reason I feel that the globe is caught between the crosshairs of a gigantic crime syndicate war between factions where the last nation standing gets to man the helm of the NWO – kind of like warring Al Capone on Valentine’s Day 1929.

Well, I’m working in Art mode today so I’ll mosey for now – let me know by leaving a Comment here if you want to discuss the situation and/or have something to add astrologically, okay? Guess we’ll find out later this week whether and when the Obama-Lama sit-down actually takes place. And I’m certain we’ll be told just what they want us to know.

Now here are the ‘Images for Integration’ for the two Sun-Moon blends of Feb 18, 2010 since Sun enters Pisces from Aquarius, so we have:

Sun AQ/Moon Aries: ‘A court jester mocks the social injustices of the realm…Robin Hood and his band of merry men outwit the evil King John once again.’

Sun Pis/Moon Aries: ‘In tattered rags, the small, obscure young servant named Arthur pulls the sword from the stone and becomes king of Camelot.’

Semi-amusing how both blends have an English flavor to them, eh what?

A new Chiffonery Art addition!

Here’s a brief heads-up for Art’s sake today: Dance Mask of Kifwebe is now under the Chiffonery Art alphabetized listings in this blog’s sidebar column of Pages, or simply click the link I just gave you.

Now I know you’re tempted to think that a ‘Dance Mask’ can have little if anything to do with erotic art (‘Chiffonery Art’ as I call it) and normally I’d agree with you wholeheartedly. Yet Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so it behooved me to add a new Chiffonery Art image to the Pages list for the romantically inclined among us. Therefore, the image is now in place for viewing, if you’re 17+ years old.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Most still blame Bush for economic collapse

In a mild fit of clarity of vision, a new poll declares that a majority of Americans still blame Bush for the economic collapse of 2008.

This is as it should be.

Do you think the Bush-Cheney master heisting of our treasure as they wiggled out the White House door has anything to do with this clear perception?

It begs credulity to suggest that neither of them have major offshore accounts filled to the brim!
