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!

Poll: Is Timothy Geithner corrupt?

There are some people in the financial world who say that he is.

How do you feel about it?

UPDATE Saturday 1.9.10 – so far ‘yes’ is in the lead. Won’t anyone defend him?

Restoring Our Financial Sovereignty

In the 1990s, it was Asia’s and Russia’s turns to be purposefully collapsed financially – now it’s America’s turn.

Nikki Alexander has written a far-reaching article on money, the international financial crime syndicate bedeviling us all, and the beginnings of America:

http://informationclearinghouse.info/article22247.htm

A few years ago I discovered that presidents Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy were assassinated for threatening to mess with the central banking system – and you’ll find out more about the subject if you click above.

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913, the unconstitutionality of the Fed, Robber Barons Inc, the Octopus, financing and arming Hitler and other dictators, Geithner, Paulson, Rockefeller, and Rothschild  – Ms. Alexander covers a lot so I hope you’ll check out her article.

Yes, the world banking syndicate is the same one candidate Obama had to pass muster with – or he would NOT be president now. And if you can possibly accept that, then his being top recipient of AIG campaign donations is much easier to understand, si?

If you haven’t, you may wish to check the sidebar of Pages for the Astrology chart of Abraham Lincoln along with the planetary placements of his assassination.

Lehman Bros chicks home to roost Oct 10 2008

As ‘George Washington’ and others are saying, Lehman Brothers’ derivatives are at the basis of much of the collapse going on here and abroad:

Earlier this evening I revisited the Solar Eclipse of Sept 11, 2007, the 9 New South Series (18Vir24) and got to thinking how difficult the Series had been for many people individually, and how its effects obviously brought along issues from past years including its initial manifestion on Jan 23, 1917 at 3AQ, the position of Inauguration 2009’s Jupiter.

Here are the dates and degrees of the other manifestations of 9 New South for reference’s sake from its 18.6 year cycle:

July 30, 1935 at 6Leo (conj US natal NN);

Aug 9, 1953 at 17Leo (Venus was at 18Leo on 9/11/01 triggering the Aug 11, 1999 Solar Ecl of Nostradamus);

Aug 20, 1971 at 27Leo (opposite US natal Moon);

Aug 31, 1989 at 8Vir, the position of Saturn on Dec 11, 2007 during the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto (28Sag24); Jupiter/Pluto =  ‘the plutocrats’ (Ebertin) who can’t get enough power and wealth under their greedy, over-achieving belts.

The 8Vir connection between 1989 and 2007 gives a possible midpoint picture…see what you think:

Sun/Moon = Saturn: addressing problems; weakened system; inhibitions.

(1989 was the year of the Great Conjunction/s of Saturn and Neptune, which began their approximately 36-year cycle for our era.)

Then the 9 New South Series manifested on Sept 11, 2007 as noted, and will next occur Sept 21, 2025 at 29Vir.

9 New South tends to bring to the surface long-term worries about loved ones, health concerns, and/or issues that concern paperwork or communications; responsibilities with paperwork or other forms of communications (stock tickers? accounting practices? oversight duties?) that come home to roost (Lehman’s chicks?), and I believe that Wall Street may have suffered some unfortunate circumstances ever since that have been brought into the open by this Eclipse…not caused by the Eclipse, but by people’s malicious and deceitful actions which can’t stay hidden forever. Peep eye!

Then on Feb 7, 2008 the ‘Unmasking Eclipse’ (10 North) came along at 17AQ45 where transiting Chiron and undermining, confused Neptune have so recently been – and 10N also has links with communications, news, and paperwork, with a tendency for inhibiting or frustrating events to occur.

Next is the Eclipse Series we’re now under, 10 South, from August 1, 2008 – the Series into which John McCain and the NYSE were born. (No! this is not a McCain’s-So-Old-How-Old-Is-He? joke)…one is a veritable institution with pretensions of grandeur, and the other one is the NYSE.

Okay, so it IS a McCain’s-So-Old joke hung upon a framework of late night TV’s Craig Ferguson’s comedy routine…

Speaking of which, did you see the Late Late Show tonight?

My favorites from the newly-minted American citizen: that AIG stands for Ain’t I Greedy…and even better: Craig played soundbites of McCain doing that odd sort of “henhh?” sound he barks juxtaposed with old footage of Burgess Meredith as the Penguin from Batman.

The scary part is that McCain and the Penguin character DO sound exactly alike…very disturbing, and apt to give penguins everywhere a bad rap. But that’s Politics – guilt by association.

Today’s Sun Libra-Moon Aquarius 10.9.08

Today, Oct 9, 2008, there’s a spirit of cooperation in the air as Sun in Libra, Moon in Aquarius – both mental Air signs – create a sense of fraternity and friendliness.

The Wachovia Wars are on hold today as a ‘truce’ is called between the financial suitors of this Charlotte NC-based bank.

NPR has announced that Hank Paulson is to give help once again to the ailing AIG, and of course, we’re expecting the coordinated interest rate cut by six central banks yesterday to give some cushion to the mess the world’s financial ‘experts’ caused, if not right away, then soon.

Sun Libra-Moon Aquarius may not be the most practical of combinations but it cannot be accused of bad intentions. There’s a natural sense of justice and social conscience which is sadly lacking in the more material types such as those found on Wall Street (or more fairly I should say those who pull the strings on Wall Street.)

Belonging to the human family, forgiveness, and being open to new ideas are pluses of this blend though emotions are somewhat detached – perhaps a good thing after all the emotional agony of the last weeks, for generally speaking, today’s emotional climate should be calmer and more rational. I hope so for the world can imagine itself into more of a quandary than things have to be – things need to calm down!

And speaking of “imagine” Sun Libra-Moon AQ is the natal Sun-Moon blend of John Lennon. The refined artisitic tastes and love of truth and beauty of this combo can be seen in Lennon’s personality – and personally I still count it as a grave loss to the world that he was assassinated – and in tandem with the 1980/81 Great Conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn (5 – 10 Libra; Dec 31, 1980; Mar 3, 1981; July 24, 1981.) Jupiter and Saturn are the societal planets and are intimately involved with financial cycles.

Sun Libra-Moon AQ is an idealistic and communicative combo with a universal point of view which will hopefully give us all a bit of a break from the roller coaster rides we’ve been on of late, and I’ve heard that today the market in NY is set to open on a high since IBM affirmed its positive outlook. That it may keep it all day is another tale, but hopefully things will be calmer before Friday’s big meeting of financial wizards in New York.

From Charles and Suzy Harvey’s ‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ we see two interesting Images for Integration for combining left and right brains thus using this blend to advantage:

“A group of literary radicals stage a love-in to protest government military policy…In an elegant opera house, a trendy jazz musician performs a rag time with a symphony orchestra.”

$85 billion for AIG

President Andrew Jackson tried to warn us about this sort of thing – unelected private money men who have too much influence on our financial system and thus on our entire society. All of this instability, loss, greed, and fraud have been occurring – under their ‘watch.’  They’re the “experts.”

Jackson hated the Bank of America. And he was wrong about a lot of things – slavery, stealing Indian lands, women’s rights – but he was spot-on about corporations and their vulturing.

Look at the power they hold now.

“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 is 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…
