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.

A little Astrology:

You know I’d been wondering for some time if Russia would make its presence felt on the world stage during the time that oil-and-gas-rich Neptune was lingering at “23AQ”…Sabian Symbol: “A Big Bear Sitting Down and Waving All Its Paws.”

And no one would volunteer for being the one sat upon, that’s for sure.

Dr. Marc Edmund Jones gives this Symbol as APTITUDE…manifesting as…

positive: a consistent desire for genuinely significant experience and a willingness to dramatize the self’s potentials to any necessary extent; (even war, apparently.)

negative/shadow side: frantic efforts to gain and hold attention.

The opposite Symbol is often instructive for gaining more information and is considered the Illumination Point due to its unconscious quality which is about to be displayed here…

“23Leo”…”A Bareback Rider”….AUDACITY…

pos: uncompromising courage in the everyday business of living, and a carefree assurance in meeting the problems of a modern society;

neg/shadow side: idle self-display and intemperant desire for applause. #

Let’s see…dramatic, frantic, attention-grabbing, audacious, assured, problem-solving, and intemperant – and undermining of an already weakened US force.

It’s plagued me all along that since the US worked against the Soviets during their ill-fated invasion and occupation of Afghanistan – with its soldiers’ nightmarish retreat – what are the chances that the favor is being- and has been pre-March 2003 – returned in kind? Just a thought on Russian-US relations.

“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…
