Aug 9 2011 Solar Flare, Tempers Flare, Bernanke speaks

Austerity cuts by the David Cameron government in the UK are part of youthful tempers stormily flaring in the streets, riots, and destruction and some astrologers (such as myself) relate the As Above, So Below tenet of Traditional Astrology to what’s occuring on Earth as reflected all around us in the celestial sphere:

Space Weather News for August 9, 2011

X-FLARE: This morning at 0805 UT, sunspot 1263 produced an X7-class solar flare–so far the most powerful flare of new Solar Cycle 24. The brunt of the explosion was not Earth directed. Even so, a minor solar proton storm is in progress around our planet, and the flare also created waves of ionization in Earth’s upper atmosphere.

Visit Space Weather News for images and more information.

SOLAR FLARE ALERTS: Did you miss the eruption? Next time get a solar flare alert by text or voice.

Additionally, Fed chairman Ben Bernanke is scheduled to speak today at 2:15 pm edt and you may be interested in my astro-notes (sans horoscope image) now published at Stars Over Washington for your consideration. Hint: Mercury Rx (announcements, etc) opposes inspired or fraudulent Neptune with both at critical-crisis 29th degrees.

Sept 2008 crisis: did Bernanke blackmail Congress?

Here is an article arguing that during the financial crisis, the take-over gem that was debuted in 2008, Fedhead Ben Bernanke and his cronies blackmailed the US Congress into TARPing us…as if they needed a boost to cheat the citizenry!

Yet they all have their scripts on Capitol Hill, that’s for certain. ‘Capitol Hill Theater’ as I tend to call it – matinee tickets available; first come, last served, if you’re a mere taxpayer.

So to answer the question this post’s title asks: Yes. He did.

Although my suspicion is that many members of Congress were in on it from the start – Bush helmed the looting for 8 years, after all, and Pres. Obama is continuing the royal deception.

When Clinton was president, his colleagues legislated some of what made it all possible; Obama’s econo-team are much the same perpetrators, as you know.

Astrology?

Now this is only one factor, but off and on since last year, the transiting midpoint of Saturn-Pluto has been sitting atop Mr. Obama’s natal Neptune, the veiling planet of self-deception, deceit, and the masses.

When Saturn and Pluto combine their energies we have: violence, mass murder, making record efforts of the highest possible order (!! the NWO? jc); toughness, fanatical adherence to one’s principles; silent activity, renunciation, scientists, reactionaries, magicians, adepts, and more. (‘The Combination of Stellar Influences.’)

Reinhold Ebertin goes on to give the midpoint picture formed as:

Saturn/Pluto = Neptune: falsehood, lies, fraud; the desire to harm others secretly; immorality; instability; shattered nerves; danger through water, poison, or gas.

Fraud and instability are abundant in the collective now, aren’t it? From Madoff to Washington and back to Wall Street which hasn’t, the president says, learned its lesson since 2008. Well, who’s making them?

If you dare, please read the article linked above for the disgusting details which now herald a late, great America.

Bernanke and the Astrology of Dec 20 2008

Fresh Update 6.25: today’s McClatchy DC article post-testimony brings Wachovia into the take-over brou-haha.

Update Thursday 6.25: Bernanke testifying on Capitol Hill today.

Can he tough it out with the aid of Capitol Hill facilitators (who have their own culpabilities to worry about)?

Original post begins here:

Here’s the CNBC story about the Fed ‘cover-up’ when chairman Ben Bernanke did – or didn’t – threaten the jobs of managers if Bank of America backed out of the Merrill-Lynch buy-out.

An email from Richmond’s Fed head is being referenced on the matter from Dec 20, 2008 which astrologers remember as the day before Winter Solstice 2008 – and the day the Sun 29Sag+ was in process of conjoining manipulative Pluto at World Point 00Cap, the sign of business, law, and politics.

Plus, Sun and Pluto were opposite the Fed’s natal Pluto 00Can, and conjunct transiting Atlantis (‘abuse of power; where we feel doomed’) and Pandora, whose curiosity and over-stepping of boundaries unleashed the ills of humanity upon the world.

The only exception, of course, was that little drop of Hope in the darkest corner, the one we cling to now.

Perhaps the little drop will last a while longer for Mr. Bernanke whose Fed term, the article notes, ends in January 2010.

So did Bernanke make a threat? The email seems to agree. And in this astrologer’s opinion, so do the planetary energies of Dec 20, 2008.

Here’s a look-back at the August 1, 2008 Solar Eclipse of the NYSE.

Fixing a Future Less Certain

Depressionus Interruptus: Did Bernanke pull the economy back from the brink?

By Mike Whitney

The stock market surge doesn’t help working people who get paid by the hour and don’t have the extra money to bet on equities. They can’t move numbers from one ledger to another and magically show a profit. They have to balance their check books, show up on time, and play by the rules. For these people – the bulk of working Americans – the future has never been grimmer and less certain.

The Patriotic Retirement Plan: “How Would You Fix the Economy?”

By St. Petersburg Times

The St. Petersburg Times Newspaper, Business Section asked readers for ideas on “How Would You Fix the Economy?” This guy nailed it!

TARP: helping or undermining markets?

Down this morning, now up a bit, the DOW and other markets continue their bouncing about the place as investors react in kneejerk fashion from moment to moment, and troubling reports are released continually with the media riding high on the ‘things are very very bad’ bandwagon.

As you know, Paulson’s about-face on the use of TARP monies this week isn’t helping one wit. Was that his intention?

So is it any wonder consumers aren’t spending? And of course my own tune remains the same: it’s all about jobs, loss of jobs, outsourcing of jobs, being underemployed, downsized, etc…that’s why people are missing payments and not shopping. Looks like Santa is on a diet for Christmas so save your doughnuts, cookies’n’milk – if you have any.

At the moment I’m working on another subject, while listening to Radiohead, but I did run across an article on George Washington’s Blog concerning Paulson, Bernanke, and governmental botching of the economic crisis which you may wish to check out for it’s full of linky richness:

http://georgewashington2.blogspot.com/2008/11/with-its-failed-policies-government.html

And speaking astrologically, with all the financial bad news and lack of confidence in markets, a new meaning may have accrued to America’s progressed Mars retrograde and its Sabian Symbol for ’18Libra’…”Two Men Placed Under Arrest” – a sentiment some are expressing about Paulson and Bernanke.

In fact, if you read the above-linked article, you may find just that sentiment expressed.

Of course, nowadays most Americans can think of several men who should be placed under arrest, can’t we?

One controversial idea to make room for the culprits in our overcrowded prison system: release all non-violent weed lovers currently serving under draconian laws and we’ll have gracious plenty space for the bandits and criminals who have sold America down the tubes by undermining our and the world’s economies!

Suits me – how about you?

sign petition: Paulson must go

Hank (the fox) may have already run away with the squawking chicks and the wolf with the golden goose but you may wish to sign the Paulson Must Go petition anyway:

And here’s a link to Lim’s Limericks which has Adriano Carelli’s symbol for ’25 Scorpio’: “A Wolf Carrying Away a Goose” along with an article link concerning the Fed’s declining influence and the IMF’s “x-ray” scrutiny of Ben Bernanke:

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com/2008/09/kitten-was-lost-at-fed.html

The IMF report that’s supposed to be due about Fed actions and non-actions will not be released until….wait for it…..Bush is out of office.

You guessed, didn’t you?!

Oct 9 is D-Day for Lehman Bros derivatives

Let George Washington explain about this Thursday being D-Day for Lehman Brothers’ auction (D for ‘derivatives’) and how much hinges on the auction’s outcome in spite of anything Paulson and Bernanke have done or might do.

And if you read George’s last paragraph, you’ll see that Oct 23 is D-Day for Washington Mutual.

Oct 23?

Oct 23, 1907 is the 101st anniversary of the day top financier J. P. Morgan said enough’s enough and rescued America’s financial patootie, although there was more than met the eye concerning that panic, too…like the problems of NY’s Knickerbocker Trust.

“This is the place to stop this trouble!” J. P. exclaimed, yet Neptune had opposed his natal Jupiter on Sept 30, 1907. And he was enjoying a fresh Jupiter Return which had recently occurred on Oct 1, 1907! Hmmm.

Noel Tyl calls them “Jupiter Reward Cycles.” (See J. P.’s Page in the sidebar column – there’s a link to Daniel Gross’ article on the subject of Oct 23, 1907 – the Panic of 1907 – as it relates to 2008.)

Well, 2008’s most powerful banker is Jamie Dimon, J. P.’s successor of sorts as head of the firm descending from the House of Morgan. The Robber Barons just keep steam rollin’ along, don’t they?

Now I turn you over to George Washington:

A Wolf Carrying Away a Goose

And that may be the Golden Goose represented in this symbol by Adriano Carelli from his ‘360 Degrees of the Zodiac’ for 25 Scorpio:

Paulson and Bernanke

No interest rate cut today – inflation still a possiblility, the Fed said.

Since I was skulking around my other politically flavored blog, Stars Over Washington, for financial posts and tidbits, I ran across an entry from the day before Ben Bernanke gave his first stateement as Fed chairman – written in expectation of it, in fact.

Then Hank Paulson took a demotion from Goldman-Sachs to US Secretary of the Treasury, so a few natal chart details were called for, so I nosed into Paulson’s ‘maverick’ status…and here again is a link for you with a quote on “the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations” from Thomas Jefferson closing out the post.

Something tells me Thom would be disappointed in how America has turned out on that score…

And here’s the one about Ben’s first shout out as Fedhead…

Lehman Bros chickens home to roost

On NPR I’m hearing chickens coming home to roost concerning Lehman Bros lack of a buyer and it reminded me of Sep 11, 2007’s Solar Eclipse which happens to be the Series in which Fed chairman Ben Bernanke was born  – aka his Pre-natal Eclipse Series.

2007’s Solar Eclipses last manifested in 1989.

As it happens, I have a few astrology clients who got worked over rather badly by this Eclipse on a personal level. It’s the 9 New South Series which Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’ gives as:

bringing to the surface long-term worries about loved ones, health, or paperwork and communications issues; a worrying piece of news received – any news has a sense of destiny or fatedness about it; responsibilities with paperwork coming home to roost.

Along with Wall Street’s chickens.

See the 9 New South Eclipse chart here: http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2007/07/sep-11-2007-solar-eclipse.html

And remember stocks plunging in November 2007?
