Chiron and Sun/Venus

Master astrologer Zane Stein, an early watcher of and author on Chiron, has written an informative article which reveals the importance of the Sun/Venus cycle and Chiron which you will find intriguing for the Mars/Venus relationship is also involved.

Mr. Stein predicts that much more about Chiron will soon come to light…that what we think we know of the Wounded Healer archetype in an Astrology chart is only the mere tip of a vast iceberg.

You remember the Sabian Symbol of Chiron’s Nov 1, 1977 discovery degree, right?

From Dane Rudhyar’s ‘An Astrological Mandala’…

‘4 Taurus’: “The Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow”…Keynote: Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly natures.

This refers to “the bridge used by divine beings to communicate with mortals.”

Rudhyar goes on to note that the rainbow is symbol of universally valid wealth: “All wealth, in a very real sense, comes from “commerce”; i.e. from the commingling of minds and from contracts, and thus is based on faith in the validity of a promise.”

Now if we can find some residual faith in commerce and the Fed – our faith now in tatters since today’s revelation of the Fed’s lying to us last Fall about banks being sound – we should be able to move on with new commercial pursuits and ‘bridge’ this economy back together for us mere mortals in spite of a deceptive upper class who imagine themselves to be ‘immortal beings’ deserving of all the world’s wealth because they know how to work the system they invented to enrich themselves while keeping the lower classes enslaved in debt and penury.

Wall Street will fleece you now

The Looting of America, an article by Barry Grey (4.10.09), details some of what I’ve been saying about the risk of joining in with 2009’s Great Conjunction/s of Jupiter and Neptune, the speculator pair, and how they will conjunct US natal Moon (the people; the public – Sibly chart) all three times they meet.

Jupiter-Neptune = Moon: losing oneself in plans; becoming involved in speculation; instability; wastefulness; little sense of reality; going with the wind; an emotional swoon. (Tyl; Ebertin.)

Once again, here are the dates and degrees of their exact conjunctions, all in 2009:

1. May 27 – 26AQ29;

2. July 10 – 26AQ02;

3. Dec 21 – 24AQ19.

Their cycle is approximately 13 years long, so the last time The Speculators met was on Jan 9, 1997 (during Pres. Clinton’s de-regulation days) at 27Cap09 – conjunct US natal Pluto.

Jupiter-Neptune = Pluto: self-projection out of hand; major adjustment of life circumstances; far-reaching speculations; plans that are unreasonable beyond measure; a great loss.

Excess liquidity in markets is their calling card!

Now we’re seeing and experiencing where the 1997 conjunction led while the transiting midpoint of Pluto-Chiron, the corporatism/class warfare/disenfranchising duo, has landed upon US natal Pluto – and thus upon 1997’s Jupiter-Neptune conjunction degree.

So if you’re one of those “small investors” that Wall Street and the Treasury Dept now have within their raptor’s gazes and you’re feeling ripe for further fleecing (see article), please think twice and then some before you ‘go with the wind’ of Jupiter-Neptune’s grandly speculative ways for the win-win is always on the upper class’ side.

US economy murdered

A Work Force Betrayed
 
Watching Greed Murder the Economy
 
Paul Craig Roberts
 
The collapse of world socialism, the rise of the high speed Internet, a bought-and-paid-for US government, and a million dollar cap on executive pay that is not performance related are permitting greedy and disloyal corporate executives, Wall Street, and large retailers to dismantle the ladders of upward mobility that made America an “opportunity society.”

The Pluto/Chiron combo of ‘class warfare’ is having its heyday now as its further undermines and leaves begging the ‘disenfranchised.’ And many people thought I was overemphasizing the possibilities for meltdown and totalitarian coup with my constant barking about Pluto/Chiron and their Great Conjunction of Dec 30, 1999, with their strong parallel in mid-August 2004.

But the view looks vastly different in 2007/08, and sad to say, American middle class, you ARE on their take-out menu – but you’ll have to scare up your own supper from the nearest soupline, if you can find one.

Midas: 8 Gemini

These days gold-hoarding Midas hangs out around 8 Gemini so I’m looking at Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol book, ‘An Astrological Mandala’ for details on our “Second Gilded Age” of Robber Baron Midasses, the obscenely wealthy class which has imposed upon those underneath them on the golden ladder of life the income inequality in America which now widens to Soup Line dimensions.

PBS’s ‘Bill Moyers’ Journal’ yesterday addressed these issues and called it an idee fixe  which the power elite cling to so tightly (tightwads) concerning the ‘free’ market system which they can’t seem to think their way out of.

Why should they when their amassing of wealth stokes a rosy illusion of liberation from the collective masses–a heady motive for imagining themselves above the rabble!

Wasn’t it Einstein who said you can’t think your way out of a problem with the same thinking that created the problem? But these greedy, power hungry culprits don’t want a way out and they prefer the rest of us simmering in the cauldron, thanks. And dissolving of boundaries–economic, national, social–is part of their much-touted one-world government intrigues where their dreams of world domination thrive.

Barack Obama’s mentions of America’s ongoing class warfare don’t make it happen–the power elite do, then they cringe when someone points it out! As well they should. For glorified ‘brethren’ they sure don’t care at all for their fellow man.

Yet Some People the world over are trying to better their positions bwo labor unions…

‘ “8Gem”…”Aroused Strikers Surround A Factory”…keynote: The disruptive power of the ambitious mind upon the organic wholeness of human relationship.

The first stage dealt with oil (‘6Gem’: “Workmen Drilling for Oil”…keynote: The avidity for knowledge which ensures wealth and power…AMBITION.) Now we see in this new symbol a pictorial indication of what the use of this intellect-generated energy inevitably leads to: industrial unrest and violence.

As man manages to rape the earth in order to demonstrate his power and intensify his pleasures and his sense of proud mastery, conflicts and disruptive processes are inevitably initiated. The type of power generated by the analytical intellectual faculties is essentially disruptive; it is based on the destruction of matter, and invites egocentric hoarding and spoliation–and, in general, privileges of one kind or another.

This leads to a REVOLT AGAINST PRIVILEGES.’ #

Old King Midas’ egocentric hoarding will get the best of him one day–if not on this earth, then on the coming New and Improved version because threading a needle with a rich camel will be an impossibility in the sweet bye’n’bye!

~:~ note: you may wish to see my Pages list for the Reaganomics Eclipse if you’ve hithertofore missed the trickle down nonsense. ‘Trickle down’/voodoo economics only works when the corporate elite plow some of their billion-dollar breaks from the US taxpayers BACK into the economy they skimmed it from.

Instead, recent years have brought downsizing, outsourcing, and the continued selling out of America along with apt Capitol Hill enabling…we see their NWO plans in action similar to Hitler’s amassing of wealth in the 30s–and the economic hourglass tilts again in the elite’s favor toward totalitarian imperialism. #

 

owning the US government

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the US since the days of Andrew Jackson.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt

~~:~~

And they’re squeezing it dry 2008 as transiting asteroid King Midas hooks up with the Great Neptune/Pluto Conjunction in the ‘Generation of Materialism’ birth chart (1892) of the Robber Baron class infesting industry, energy, and finance (7-8 Gemini) and we now have ringside seats for observing the rotten outcome from these hubristic social tinkerers.

Here’s a rhyme for Barack Obama’s campaign and VP vetting woes:

Past CEO of Fanny Mae Obama’s vetting done
it’s best to move along your way for races must be won!

Uh oh! another silly poem has occurred, this one for John McCain who’s So Not like George Bush, he’d have us believe, and yet he reminds me of SomeOne ruthless and reformist in a police state kind of way…this verse may not be groanworthy enough for the discerning but at least it’s briefer than the Bush tenure…

McCain McCain our oft’ refrain
what wars will you promote?
don’t plan attacks
to knife our backs
while reading My Pet Goat.

“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…
