Lehman Brothers crisis of 1984: lessons learned?

You may or may not remember but Lehman Brothers was in a big pickle back in 1984, which brings  Reagan Republicans into the crisis picture to join John McCain’s lack of economic savvy a la 2008:

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2008/09/lehman-brothers-crisis-of-1984.html

2008 minus 1984 = two Jupiter cycles…so let’s all repeat the Republican’s Jupiter Mantra: ‘Every day in every way I’m getting better and better’ – as if expansion never has to end, and the piper never has to be fully paid.

The Solar Eclipses of 1984 are the 10 North (May 30; 9Gem) and 4 South (Nov 22; 1Sag):

4N: illusions, separations, restraints, inhibitions, and restrictions are the hallmarks of this Series; events cause blockages which result in misjudgment of situations or strength; best advice is to wait until Eclipse passes before taking any real action.

Last manifested June 10, 2002 (20Gem)…Pre-natal Eclipse Series of Israel (May 14, 1948; 4:00 pm eedt; Tel Aviv.)

4S: very strong emotional feelings concerning money and/or relationships; anger, lust; sense of fatedness as we’re caught up in events beyond personal control; could be a sudden desire to finish a relationship; emotions are blocked or checked in some way leading to much frustration; avoid rash actions until issues settle down. (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology.’)

Last manifested Dec 4, 2002 (11Sag58 conj US natal ASC~Sibly, and conj Dec 30, 1999’s Great Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron~plutocracy; corporatism)…Pre-natal Eclipse Series of the Bush-Cheney Iraq Invasion 2003.

Needless to say, Bush-Cheney did not avoid rash actions.

Biden’s MBNA ties and US banking legislation

Did Joe Biden’s ties to credit card company MBNA affect his role in banking legislation that draconically re-wrote bankruptcy law AGAINST consumers? Yes.

MBNA has since been bought by Bank of America but was spawned in Delaware, Biden’s home state.

Will it affect his ability to help Obama become president? Depends on how many other culprits come under fire for similar corruption. Biden’s staffers are defending him with ‘compromises must be made’ which could justify most anything you like.

Credit cards are Delaware!

And Biden sold his house to an MNBA executive and has received about $240, 000 in contributions through the years, as NPR is now reporting. Well, is Biden really an outsider to Washington’s ways? Apparently not esp when it comes to big money – and natally he does have a happy Jupiter in busine$$-oriented Cancer.

And since the objective during political campaigning is to wound your opponent/s without getting caught, tit-for-tat revelations should surely be in preparation to stem the damage.

We’ll see how this ‘gotcha’ plays out for Obama-Biden…esp if this week’s out-of-bounds Moon signifies plans you have no intention of fulfilling anyway…such as resting the helm from neocon hawks and Zionists of the GOP. It’s not as if Dem strategists hadn’t known Biden’s financial ties and their implications Before he was chosen as VP running mate -are they trying to lose like Kerry? 

Oh for an honest man? They’re all pocket-liners in Washington…US natal Jupiter = “6Cancer”: “Gamebirds Feathering Their Nests.” Clear to me, how about you?

I still believe all candidates should disclose to the hoodwinked American people just how much moola they’ve gained from the ‘war on terror’ and the war in Iraq (ha! right?) Iraqi children are suffering so horribly and it makes me Very Angry when children suffer.

With an ‘out of bounds of the earthly plane’ Moon affecting events, plans, moods, and other Moon-related factors this week – and with security concerns included in the scenario – safety needs are again indicated (see two previous posts below.)

But plans made under this Moon won’t tend to pan out, so the saving grace for this Dem Convention’s OOBs Moon is that their plans were, of course, made Prior to this week; still a Moon OOBs gives a scattered, vague, and/or warm-and-fuzzy feeling to the proceedings.

Pass the mac’n’cheese, no pork please!

So the lack of realism and wasted effort occurring under an OOBs Moon may show through misjudgments of some kind with mistakes being made. Good! Perhaps my expressed fears about safety and sabotage this week are what will come to nothing.

George Washington on War

“Nothing short of self-respect and that justice which is essential to a national
character ought to involve us in war.”  George Washington, First President of the
United States 1732-1799

Well, yes. There should be that.

But self-respect and justice have been tossed in George Bush’s wastebin now along with the ‘integrity’ he brought back to the White House.

Here’s a bit concerning our First President’s natal chart:

Cadbury Bunny hops past + blogging for jingos and johns

Don’t let the Cadbury Bunny get ya, Y’all!

Just kidding…Cadbury is my favorite brand of chocolates and I can definitely get into a box of their shortbread sticks if no one stops me, but fortunately I don’t have any to get in trouble with so I’m well out there! I only wish I could like dark chocolate, but it’s never to be.

Portrait of Spring 2008 in the southeastern US…

Yesterday afternoon, I spied a small brown cottontail twitching his cute little whiskers just down a sun-dappled path as I returned from a stroll…he was using a well-hopped bunny crossing, I’m guessing. But there were no Cadbury eggs in his basket–not with my name inscribed upon them.

So in lieu of Easter treats, I have moseyed over to SO’W today to post a couple of article links sent me from LegitGov–one concerning Eliot Spitzer’s nemesis, Roger Stone, who had a little sumpin-sumpin to do with how the Florida prez election turned out in 2000. Quite the GOP operative is Mr. Stone…it’s time consuming werk being a nemesis, one imagines.

The second article discusses the blackmailing bwo trade reprisals that went on against US ‘allies’ in the Bush-Cheney rush to war in Iraq. Now who didn’t realize that “necessity” as it was happening? Well, it’s taken awhile, but Heraldo Munoz has a book coming out detailing the subject.

Other than that, it’s a lovely if slightly chilly Spring day here and our usual Easter rain has yet to fall, unlike our nation’s sodden Midwesterners who hopefully will be back on a drier track very soon.

And if you missed it, here’s an article I wrote in Dec ’07 on the natal chart of Jesus of Nazareth: http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2007/12/birth-chart-for-jesus-apr-17-6-bc.html  …He is risen!

“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…
