Of quakes, earth wobbles, shorter days, and Rangel

Here’s an article that explains what’s going on with last weekend’s massive 8.8 Chilean quake and its effect on earth’s wobble.

Shorter days are said to be a result of the quake in Chile and one may suppose that ethics-challenged Charlie Rangel’s stepping down from the Chairmanship of the Tax-Writing panel in Washington DC may result in shorter days for him as well.

This morning at 10:03 am est, I happened to have C-SPAN tuned in when Rangel’s brief resignation letter was read on the floor and immediately accepted.

A 29th ‘critical’ or ‘crisis’ degree was rising: 29Taurus18, making Venus, who loves to deal with valuable things, the letter’s chart-ruler.

Venus makes 4 applying aspects in the chart:

1. conjunct Uranus @ ’26Pis’ = “A New Moon That Divides Its Influence” (and influence is what congressional chairmanships are all about; the rest is mostly pocket-lining: US founded with natal Jupiter @ ‘6 Cancer’ = “Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests” which to me makes All congress members fair game for ridicule of and dissent against their greed and corruption – Venus/Uranus contacts suggest being erratic or extravant with money – in the case of Congress, that’s extravagance with Our money);

2. inconjunct Moon ’24Libra’ = “A Third Wing on the Left Side of a Butterfly” (Moon = the people; the public; inconjs are aspects showing that adjustments are needed);

3. trine Mars Rx 00Leo37, nearing at his Direct Station degree ‘1Leo’ = “A Case of Apoplexy” – Mars will seemingly stand still @ 00Leo18 and turn Direct on March 10, 2010 @ 12:08:44 pm est in Washington, DC;

4. opposite Saturn 2Lib41 Rx (Saturn traditionally signifies the Democratic Party, Jupiter the Republicans; the letter was read during a Jupiter Hour.)

South Node (SN), a point of separation, is @ 19Can37 in the chart which points ahead to the Solar Eclipse of July 11, 2010 @ 19Can24 (@ 3:40:17 pm edt, DC, in 8th house of Shared Resources, Debt, Credit, Insurance, Big Money, etc.)

The July 2010 Eclipse is in the 12 South Series which is the PE of America’s founding: ‘successful outcomes to long term worries or illness; issues at first seem worse, then clear.’ (paraphrasing Brady.)

Back to March 3, 2010 @ 10:03 am est, Capitol Building:

Here are the Sabian Symbols of the chart angles which answer 4 basic questions on the matter of the resignation letter’s reading:

The WHAT? of the chart: ASC ’30Tau’ = “A Peacock Parading on an Ancient Lawn” – though perhaps not as proudly as before.

WHY? Mc ‘8AQ’ = “Beautifully Gowned Wax Figures” – as in a Capitol Hill tableaux or matinee? At Mc are two midpoints which form pictures:

Jupiter/Pluto = Mc: hardworking attainment of power position (well, yes, but ethical behavior is always helpful for keeping it);

Neptune/NN = Mc: taking a position off the mainstream of life (only when forced, it seems!) (midpoints: Tyl; Ebertin);

WHERE or WHERE TO? DESC ’30Scorpio’ = “The Halloween Jester” – you remember this degree from the 2009 Inauguration chart: ‘the people’ = the Moon in a national chart…2009 Inaugural Moon 29Sco45.

HOW? Ic ‘8Leo’ = “A Bolshevik Propagandist” – this is George Bush’s natal ASC degree/Symbol – but W couldn’t have anything to do with Rangel’s ethics, right? Wonder if the GOP is behind Rangel’s outing? It isn’t as if most of them don’t partake in similar scams, and the R Party’s natal Mercury is nearby @ ‘9Leo+.’ This may point back to the Solar Eclipse of August 1, 2008 @ 9Leo32 (the ‘Beijing Eclipse’ of the Olympics 2008) which heralded the financial crisis of 2008 (along with the August 16, 2008 Lunar Eclipse – see this blog’s sidebar of Pages) and is in the same Eclipse Series as the natal Series of John McCain and of the NYSE – 10 South.

10S’s flavor is one of ‘breaking out of a very negative situation where no hope can be seen to a more positive space containing many options; a long term worry will suddenly clear; the cosmos shows a solution that must be taken up immediately.’ (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology.’)

So…those in-the-know knew of our economic problems for years and to my way of thinking, they engineered things just how they wanted them so a ‘new economic and political order’ can be set up, they hope.

Therefore, 10S is the Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Series of the Obama Administration (Eclipse occurring pre-Jan 20, 2009) and can be said to describe the ‘rush back to Washington to save the financial system’ which both parties indulged themselves in during the 2008 campaign – a script written for our diversion and befuddlement.

(My motto: when politicians say, Look Here!, I look in the opposite direction to see what shenanigans our corrupt little magicians are up to. Massive bailouts then transferred wealth to those who were already wealthy – a neat hat trick courtesy of our ‘Halloween Jesters’ unless you’re one of their many victims. And who isn’t?)

The Sun Pisc/Moon Libr combo has two interesting ‘Images for Integration’ which affect the day’s activities.

This would include the memorial service now underway for Rep John Murtha, the first Vietnam veteran elected to serve in the US Congress, and himself fallen in recent years under his own challenged-ethics cloud. Yet Rep Murtha was a champion on behalf of our troops and I thank him sincerely for that. May he RIP.

March 3, 2010:

Sun Pisc/Moon Libr: “A theatrical music artist entertains his entourage of friends and fans…A team of writers create a masterpiece.” (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Well, I don’t know if it took a ‘team of writers’ to compose Rep Rangel’s letter of resignation (a step-down which is said to be “temporary”) since it was too brief to glean its brilliance readily but it’s a dance step that had to be taken by Mr. Rangel.

I hear Tom Delay’s former spot in the ‘Dancing with the Stars’ line-up of hoofers may be available. All parading peacocks with Taurean hoofs may wish to apply.

“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…
