Obama born w/ Pluto square US natal Uranus!

As I studied charts this morning for a Stars Over Washington post on the signing of the Treaty of Paris, Sep 3, 1783 and the Freemasonic flavor of it, I ran across something I had meant to blog about previously but don’t think I ever have…the fact that President Obama’s natal Pluto 6Vir59 squares America’s natal Uranus 8Gem55.

As you know, squares (90 degr) represent obstacles and blockages and can indicate being blindsided; Uranus is individuality, rebellion, freedom, and eccentricity, while Pluto is power, transformation, and coping ability.

If we look to the Uranus/Pluto square as what it is – a transit to America’s 1776 natal chart in *1961, we find something interesting in relation to the president’s current dealings and concerns:

Transit Pluto SQ n Uranus: political and economic structures and institutions are under fire from powerful people who threaten to restrict or withhold resources needed for the institutions to function.

Does this sound like precisely what President Obama is dealing with as he moves to restrict CEO pay and bonuses of bailed-out institutions along with other financial and political considerations? Plus, the refusal of big bankers to lend to small businesses!

Mr. Obama could be the withholder or others may be since Astrology is an AC-DC system where energy can flow in either or both directions simultaneously!

Imo, the president should be the restrictor in this situation and I hope he carries out the threat to lower the above-all-reason pay and bonus packages of the companies the US taxpayers rescued against our better judgement.

Bailing out the bail-outers

Checking my piggybank now for any extra millions lying about so I can help bail out the FHA when the plea comes…

US Economy and the 2009 Inaugural Moon

Among other things, the slowness of the Obama stimulus package’s implementation and good effects may be attributed to the Void-of-Course Moon at a crisis-ridden, impatient 29th degree of Scorpio on Jan 20, 2009.

Most common folk know that the wrong end of the street was ‘bailed out’ which is leading to a leaden feeling in the bottom of checking accounts all over the country.

So it’s no big surprise that greed for outsized returns on investments is gumming up the works on the bank capitalization front as we await the start of the lending (the sharing of our own money with us!) to begin.

VOC Moons indicate that things won’t work out as planned or will have unexpected results if they do.

It may even be considered ‘too late’ for actions to make much if any difference (late Scorpio) by the people (Moon), highlighting the sheep being at the mercy of the wolves, in this political case.

There may even be something sinister about the situation especially at ’29 degrees’ of ‘Scorpio’ a sign of Fixed (rigid) energy.

And there’s the next degree after Scorpio ends, ‘1 Sagittarius’…the “A Grand Army of the Republic Campfire” degree which tells me that Uncle Sam Wants YOU, the unemployed.

Yet if bailed out banks chose to act as if they understood from whom the gifted billions cameth, would they then lend out said money to the very people who would actually put loaned funds to good use thereby stimulating the economy?

Like a micro-loan, loanees would be idiots not to pay up on a fairly written and negotiated loan based on real income. This assumes that banks will begin to settle for returns on paid-off deals rather than outrageous profits issuing in part from thin and fraudulent air.

How beggared do rich aristos and their minions have to make the populations of each nation before we say, that’s my money, hands off. You’ve got yours and then some. In fact, you’ve got a piece of every action, oh global crime syndicates now joining forces more than ever before.

(Okay, I confess – that’s what I saw this week when Presidents Obama and Medvedev shook hands – crime syndicates putting aside their petty differences long enough to embrace joint achievement – and underneath an Apollo sun-god sunburst symbol, too! So I ask myself: why would Russia want the US to be successful in Afghanistan after the Soviet army’s humiliating defeat years ago? Charity? Kindness of their hearts? Puh!)

Well, if you or someone you love have paid taxes in the US any of these last decades, you must know that you’ve paid for war, more war, building of a worldwide network (system) of military bases in order to police the world.

Of course you know that!

So I figure the global power players must have most of the gold and other commodities all saved up since they don’t need our tax dollars much longer (massive unemployment numbers; devalued dollar.)

The starvation of city and state governments is part of the charade, too. Break ’em down after the coffers are pilfered, trickle in fewer taxes due to unemployment and lack of retail sales, and you won’t long need a state coffer. And of course – you simply can’t do Anything for the people because you’re broke.

Then sell the emptied coffer for its metal content and we’ll all enter Utopia together where it’s pass the loincloths, hold the civilization – centralization rules!

For as Barry Goldwater once said, “A government that is big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away.”

Senator Goldwater’s pronouncement was meant as a warning to a more sinister extent that a majority of we Americans ever believed about ‘our’ government, touted as the fairest in the world and the best the world has ever known.

Which tells you how others through the centuries have sucked.

So that’s what they’re in process of doing now with bail outs for the rich who then socialize their costs and losses and stick us with the bill.

They’re beggaring America.

Is Hank Paulsen a “national hero”?

Matt Taibbi doesn’t mince words in his reply to Evan Newmark’s call in the Wall Street Journal for the enshrinement of Hank Paulsen as a “national hero.”

(Be sure to read the second half.)

Mr. Newmark is a former managing director of Goldman-Sachs, so he may be a little – biased – and/or on the payroll.

No, “enshrinement” isn’t what I think Bush’s Treasury Secretary Paulsen deserves either for his role in TARP murkiness or for his role in the downfall of the US financial system.

But perhaps you disagree!

TARP, crisis, and the Solar Eclipse of 7/22/09

Guess I’m still in process of developing the subject range of my latest blog so this post is merely a heads-up on today’s entry concerning the world financial system, TARP funds growing wild, and the upcoming July 22, 2009 Solar Eclipse which may sing some tunes that no one wants to hear.

US middle class descends

Here we have Germany’s Der Spiegel taking a look from a distance upon the US middle class’ descent into living in and eating at tent cities and soup kitchens.

Stirring the soup with a long ladle, are we?

My hope is that everyone may have soup to stir by the time the last domino flops. These jokers play for keeps.

Russian astrologer predicts end for Obama

Update Nov 12, 2012: obviously Mr. Globa was totally incorrect about Pres. Obama’s 1st term fate. Original post begins here:

Update June 28, 2010: an article on Robert Kuttner’s new book ‘A Presidency in Peril: The Inside Story of Obama’s Promise, Wall Street’s Power, and the Struggle to Control our Economic Future’ is available for you here and doesn’t highlight President Obama’s death as much as it does the death of America.

Original post begins here:

Famous Russian astrologer Pavel Globa has predicted the death of President Obama in 2011 by assassination.

Now death predictions are not the kind of thing this reluctant astrologer prefers to agree with so I won’t. Yet there are difficult indications in certain charts which I’ve been in process of ignoring – until I found this article from March 6, 2009.

And yet it’s certainly possible Mr. Globa has his own reasons for such a prediction.

Well, crum. Maybe I shouldn’t ignore it.

If there are conspiracies to undermine the US and destroy American sovereignty – and that of other nations – for the ‘glory’ of a one-world-government (and I suspect there are since it seems to be working well for them as they steamroll us along) – I had thought Mr. Obama might be safe from such harm because he cooperates so completely with world bankers and the financial royalty of the world.

Actually, he wouldn’t be in the Oval Office if they hadn’t wanted him there.

Plus, the fabled ‘Tecumseh’s Curse’ of US presidential assassinations which relates to the 20-year-cycle of Jupiter and Saturn wouldn’t seem to be in play in 2011 – their last Great Conjunction occurred on May 28, 2000; next conj on Dec 21, 2020 (that one is suspicious since it’s at 00AQ29. Unless the date of the US Inauguration is changed, it’s the position of the Inaugural Sun at noon, Jan 20, in Washington.)

In fact, Mr. Obama seems to be quite in their back pockets, imho, given the appointments to his administration and their actions in the ongoing econo-crisis which they and their ritzy colleagues engineered – or at the least, failed to stop when it could have mattered.

Of course, if BHO is actually one of ’em, they could turn on him at some point, so if Mr. Globa is correct in his dire prediction (and maybe he knows something we in the US don’t know) then the mayhem may come from a different source than the world banking class who have been accused of being behind both JFK’s and Abe Lincoln’s assassinations…for the two presidents dared to mess with the world banking system and then paid the heaviest price of all.

Side note: does this side view of Pres. Obama tally with the photo in the above article? I’m noticing a *difference in noses!

* view the slideshow about 3 to 4 pics in – it won’t allow me to link to just one photo of a side view of the presidential schnoz.

Michael Moore on Wagoner’s firing

Since filmmaker Michael Moore’s father was a long-time GM employee and because Moore has a history dogging GM excesses, lack of transparency, and its sorry treatment of its employees, I thought I’d check out what Mr. Moore has to say about GM exec Rick Wagoner’s recent firing by the president of the United States:

‘We the People’ to ‘King of the World’: You’re Fired!

By Michael Moore

“Did Obama really fire the chairman of General Motors? The wealthiest and most powerful corporation of the 20th century? Can he do that? Really? Well,damn! What else can he do?!”

US Pluto in 2nd house of Money

If you’re familiar with America’s natal chart (Sibly version: 5:10 pm LMT) you know that US natal Pluto, the planetoid now in process of cleaning out our financial closets, is posited in our nation’s 2nd house, one of the money houses of Earning Ability, Values, and Self-Worth.
