The first question comes from Aymon:
so what we’ll be seeing in dec will be worst than what we’re seeing recently from sept to october?
Unfortunately, yes. I do get the feeling that over the next couple of years some major changes in how the markets work both here and internationally, along with some sort of restructuring and some new laws, will make the global economy stronger and less vulnerable to future problems. But it will get worse before it gets better.
The aspect that set this chain off will go exact in December, so there will be as I said in the post, a tsunami.
I used that metaphor because in a tsunami, at first you’re not sure what is happening, the ocean recedes, looks strange, but it doesn’t seem so bad, then all of a sudden your drowning. And just as it seems to be over, the water pours out again. So that is how I saw it playing out. It’s almost as if it’s not really happening, very surreal.
I’m going to post, the Dow, NASDAQ, The US Constitution and the US Constitution’s signing chart so you can follow what I’m saying. If anyone is interested I have some basic astrological information, for novices on another blog, it’s url is: http://astrologybasics.wordpress.com if you want to ask astrological questions you can post your questions there and I’ll answer them.
Anyway here are the charts with some interpretation to follow:
Looking at the Dow’s chart we’ll see the start of a downward spiral happening more behind the scenes (like it has been) then in our faces. But once Pluto crosses the ascendant in late January 09, we will really see the effects of what has been happening. Right now this Pluto aspect is going through the 12th house and although we’re seeing it, we’re not really seeing it yet. It’s not clear what all of this means and there is a lot of illusion and delusion about the stock market. But come late January we are going to be smacked in the face and it will directly start effecting us.
My intuition is that we will see a many more companies go under, a lot more job loss/unemployment, a significant hit for retail stores — many of them will go out of business, and so many other companies are going to fall. We will also start to see a sharp rise in homelessness.
There are a lot of factors at play here. In the US Constitution’s chart Pluto will be crossing the 7th house around March of 09, making our allies more vulnerable to economic turbulence than they have already felt. But around the same time Pluto makes the horrible aspect to the Dow it also inconjuncts Uranus in the second house of work, which makes me feel there will be a tie in to major job losses, and it will be sudden, out of the blue — so some industries that seem invulnerable right now will get hit. Pluto is also squaring the US Constitution’s part of fortune in Libra in the 4th house, again causing turbulence in the housing market. More people will loose their homes, and right now we are seeing a credit freeze in that area, this aspect will get worse in late November and into December.
This whole thing is a giant mess. The more I look at all the charts the crazier it looks. Also Uranus will make an exact conjunction to the natal US Constitution’s chart’s Mercury which rules the 4th house. I worry a bit about another terrorist attack during this time period (March of 09). We are really in for some strange times.
But I also feel we are going to turn this around and find hope, courage and a great lesson in all of this. This will be a defining moment in American history for a bunch of reasons and I have an intense feeling most of us will rise to the challenge and it will bring out the best in us, and we will turn things around for the better. It may even wake us up about other issues such as global warming which really threaten the habitability of our planet, and makes our current problem small in comparison.
So perhaps we needed this wake up call to get us all involved, engaged and thinking again, rather then checking out — something I feel we have been doing for a long time now. Hopefully, we will all learn that politics are important — the workings of which have a direct effect on our personal lives. Something we forgot when things seemed to be working OK.
We forgot the lessons of our ancestors who lived through horrible things, fought with their lives to not just give us our freedom, but to insure people would get paid a fair wage, and not be exploited. This is why unions were set up. Before their invention, our country was very much like China or Dickinsonian England where children worked 16 hour days for practically nothing, and no matter how hard a person tried they couldn’t make ends meet unless they came from the upper classes.
We forgot that people died putting those unions together to make life better for generations to come, only for Republicans to sell us on the notion that unions just took money and did nothing. Granted, unions got fat and lazy, and not all of them lived up to their original glory. But without them or regulations or without all of us banning together by voting for our own interests instead of lobbyists controlling Washington — we are nothing. We are not a democracy, we are a corporate plutocracy. Nothing could have made that point more clear then what happened during the last two election cycles. Special interests and corporations had gained so much power while we were busy playing with our blackberries, that we hardly noticed they had bought the Republican party, sold it to the working poor via FOX News (Rupert Murdoch) and then had a coo that we paid for.
But their party is over! That is the good news. We will pay the price for their greed and our laziness. But we will learn and will have the opportunity to truly be the great country we were meant to be.
So vote, get involved and stay involved. We can’t let this happen again. The next few years are going to be hard for all of us, but we can change it. We can learn from this, and if we stick together, and help one another, we will never be stronger.
Best wishes and blessings.
