Answering Readers’ Questions…

OK I’m going to answer 3 questions from one reader tonight and also tackle the auto industry mess. I did not have time today to watch their plea for money today, but here are the charts of 2 major auto industry giants, and some indication of their fate.

Personally, I don’t feel that the companies should be bailed out, the workers should be. By this I mean instead of giving them 25 billion to these companies to screw things up some more, why not give all of the workers a decent severance pay, and re-education training, then make the overpaid CEOs who have run these companies into the ground, repay the 25 billion dollar loan off by selling their private jets, downsizing their homes, and selling off their assets until they lifestyle is commensurate with their job performance.

For the past 30 years these companies have made crappy cars, been in bed with the oil companies, have laid of thousands of workers without any concern for them (until the crocodile tears we’re seeing now) and haven’t invested in research, design, engineering or technology. According to the free market capitalism they’ve been playing ball in, they deserve to go under. All they are going to do with this money is waste it. So I say give it to the people who need it, the workers — give them enough to survive the transition into a new field of work and retrain them. That will ultimately do the economy a lot more good then throwing money down a golden CEO toilet.

Now you may say, hey Denise, you thought the bail out for wall street was OK, what gives? Well, I did think the first package, the one that didn’t pass would have helped a great deal, but the compromised one would do no good. And in that case the problem was worldwide like a global leukemia that needed immediate chemotherapy. Unfortunately, before that happened someone stuck a bunch of saltwater in the IV instead of the needed drug, and it didn’t kill off the bad paper (which is causing a strangle hold on the economy) it just watered down the problem. This is real trickle down economics, bad decisions by the greedy to steal the poor’s money through false promises of being able to buy and afford the American Dream of owning a home. Now its trickling down to us all paying for their con.

So lets look at Chrysler and GM’s charts and see if bailing them out is worth it.

picture-17I think GM will get a bail out, but they’ll have another crisis of major proportions in 2011, and very likely go under at that time, so I don’t see the point of bailing them out. They are going to fail eventually, it’s only staving off the inevitable. It would take a miracle, over the next couple of years, for them to turn this company around, and make the coming transiting Pluto opposing their natal Pluto be a change for a better rather then the death of the company. I think its really throwing good money after bad with them, but congress in its freak out state will try to do something, the money may not really come into their possession until mid-late January of 09 though.

OK, now here goes with Chrysler. Again they are headed for total destruction. But not immediately, I don’t want to bother going into all the dreadful aspects with them, there are too many. They really don’t have a chance of making it in the long haul. By 2012 they will be collapsing in on themselves. Again, giving them money will only hold the coming problem off until then, but I feel congress will try to rescue them as well, but it will ultimately be for naught. They are in even more serious trouble then GM. And they are not very upfront with their business. We’ll find out about a lot of bad stuff in 2012, a lot of smarmy activity and reckless business dealings. 

This is very sad. Anyone who works in this industry, my advice to you is this: You have a couple of years, take classes at a community college or any sort of school that offers you a new career opportunity. The medical field, nursing homes, funeral businesses, prisons, the federal government and institutions of all kinds will be growing over the next twenty years as Uranus (and then Neptune) transit through Pisces. So nursing, being an MRI tech, x-ray tech, funeral director, prison guard, government employee, will all be areas of opportunity. Start taking classes in a related field and do research on careers ruled by Pisces, there are many. Find one that seems interesting and get education to go into that new field. You don’t have very long, so don’t waste your time trying to keep your auto industry job unless you want to move to wherever they make Toyotas and Hondas.

Hi Denise:
(1) The Gallop poll shows that Obama’s favorability rating is at 71%. Are the people who didn’t vote for him finally starting to see him as the right person for the job? This rating is very good for someone who hasn’t even taken office yet. Go Obama!
(2) Do you the know the timing of when Sarah Palin will have this civil case against her? She has been plastered all over the news lately. Everyone wants an interview with her to ask about her $150,000 + clothes (was this her doing?). She should really be ashamed of herself for saying those lies about Obama. She’s so quick to call people “jerks” and liars if they say anything negative about her…but when she does it, in her eyes it’s ok…like when she tried to incite hate and violence towards Obama. It’s just so upsetting to see these republicans being so hypocritical and mean. I don’t understand them at all.
(3) Speaking of hypocrisy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck (Sarah Palin’s twin sister), the woman who is so hated by many for her strong republican views, constantly butts heads with her co-hosts. I really don’t think her co-hosts enjoy working with her, eventhough they say they do and they all love each other. I feel they secretly hate her too and they just have to put up with her because this team brings high ratings. What do you think about this?
Thanks again for answering our questions. I really enjoy this site…I feel we have our own little community in here where we can come to share our views, seek spiritual guidance and feel hope! Thank you Denise!

Hi Tckal,

Question 1:

I think this is because there were many people on the Republican side who knew Obama was the better man for the current job, even McCain admitted he didn’t know much about the economy. McCain certainly isn’t a dumb guy, but between the two men, Obama has a superior intellect, something we are in desperate need of after 8 years of a monkey (George W, ironically looks like Curious George to me only he’s missing the curios part) banging on a typewriter hoping to write MacBeth. 

Many people identify themselves with a party kind of in the same way they identify themselves with a religion. They are raised Catholic so they call themselves that, but they never attend church, are pro-choice, don’t know if they believe in God, hated CCD and never read the bible. But they have incorporated Catholic into their identity because that’s what their family was, or is, and so they think of themselves that way even though they really aren’t. This goes for the brands Republican and Democrat.

I’ve seen people on both sides misidentify themselves because of this same issue. For instance (this has happened to me more then once and on both sides of the fence) I have a musician friend that when we first met told me, he was a Republican. I found this hard to believe because everything he said and did ran counter to this identity. So I asked why he said he was a Republican. His answer was, “that’s the way I was raised.” 

“OK,” I said. “So your anti-choice?”

“No,” he replied.

“You’re anti-gun control?”

He shook his head.

“So your all for the, ‘just say no to drugs thing.'”

He smiled mischeveiously.

“You believe in criminalizing drug offenders?”

“No,” he said.

“Well, you’re not a Republican then, you’re a Democrat,” I finally said.

After a few weeks of thinking about what he believed, and the platform of both parties, he realized he really was a Democrat, and not a Republican, but it took someone confronting him on it for him to think about it. I think a lot of people who identify themselves as Republicans couldn’t do the deed of voting Democrat because it would be like being a Bears fan and going to Soldier Field, sitting in the Bears section, and rooting for the visiting Broncos to win. It’s a loyalty issue. Odd as that may seem.

Personally, if the Democrats started acting like Republicans, and Republicans like Democrats, I’d become a Republican. Doubtful this will happen anytime soon, but for me, and I’m sure most people who read this blog, its the ideology of fairness, compassion, kindness, humanitarianism, helping out those in need and being open minded (as long as they aren’t violent or vile or something like that) we are loyal to, it’s not the brand name Democrat. But not everyone thinks this way. So I think of the71% you mentioned, that extra 18% or so of Republicans, they wanted to vote Obama, but couldn’t make their hand punch a hole next to the word Democrat.

2) Oh, Sarah Palin…

picture-13See all that stuff in her 7th house? That rules court cases and the public eye, she has and has had Neptune (glamour, confusion, delusion) going back and forth over all those planets this year which is probably why she was tapped (astrologically speaking) for the position of VP out of relative obscurity. I’d say the suit will be filed next year, and will come to fruition (either in settlement terms or a court case) in 2010 when Neptune hits her Saturn (hello, karma).

3) Elizabeth Hasselbeck…

I don’t know if you heard of the study done by Dr. Drew Pinsky about narcissism and different sorts of stars. Musicians had the lowest, or most normal rates per capita of those he studied, actresses (interestingly not actors) the second highest percentage of NPD over the general public, and guess who had out of control NPD? Reality TV show personalities. Turns out they had this mental illness in overwhelming numbers. Need I say more? 

OK, I will. This mental illness (in its extreme) or tendency often makes people difficult to deal with. They have major entitlement issues, and this, as we have all known people like that, is not fun to deal with.

However, I’m not saying Elizabeth Hasselbeck has this problem (I’d have to look at her real chart, not just solar to see if she has it, Sarah Palin does, though).

I have often wondered about your question as well. I do have the feeling she drives the rest of the women on the show a bit crazy, but I also get the feeling she’s probably very nice to them, and I don’t feel she holds onto anything. Despite her annoying views, I have a feeling she’s pretty upbeat, and when not talking politics, or ideology is probably good natured, and fun to have around.

So in answer to that question, I’d have to say, I think she was driving them nuts during the election, but they don’t hate her. And now that its over I’m sure any rifts can be patched.

Hold on tight, we’re getting closer to the wild ride.

Best of luck to all of you and many blessings,

Denise

Hi everyone, more questions, more answers.

The first from Kathleen,

kathleen

Would like to know future physic prediction of Obama and Pallen

These are pretty broad questions but I’ll do my best and I’m sure over the next few years their destiny and my predictions will become more intricate and precise as their paths evolve.

But here goes.

picture-15

Sarah Palin isn’t going to go quietly into the night. She’s going to exploit her 15 minutes as much as possible, however, she has transiting Neptune hitting her natal Mars in the 7th house of open enemies, squaring her 12th house cusp starting in December of this year. Mars also rules her 9th house (the law) and 4th house (home). This aspect will bring someone to the forefront, someone who has a grudge against Palin, more unflattering information will come out about her, and it’s possible another investigation of her, and her family could be triggered.

Another aspect that does not bode well for her immediate future is Pluto inconjuncting her Venus (Venus rules her 10th house of career). This is a separating aspect and Pluto rules power, so one could interpret that as power being taken from her. It again seems to indicate family trouble. Her 5th house is involved indicated it could be separation from a child, so perhaps her daughter will decide to move out once she’s married (that’s the best possible interpretation). I’m not going to mention some of the darker things these aspects could mean because as much as I don’t like her politically, I don’t want wish any ill on her regarding her personal or family life. And I don’t want to put anything out there that could freak the family out in any way. If it does manifest in a potentially very negative way there isn’t anything that can be done, so it serves no purpose. This aspect is very active from late December into late January, then comes back late June until early August of 09, and hits again from mid-October until the end of November.

And later when Neptune conjuncts her Saturn starting around the 13 of March, 2009, her career will be put in serious jeopardy. This aspect could trigger a loss of her career (and job in her case as Saturn rules her 7th) also there could be repercussions or loss within her marriage or her father or father’s side of the family or a father figure/John McCain?. However, these aspects will be conjunctions and don’t make any other major aspects so its hard to say how strong this energy will be. And there is a good chance that the negative aspects of these aspects will be off set when Jupiter goes over her 7th house and over her stellium in Aquarius in mid-April. So whatever comes up may not stick.

I’m just going to skip ahead to what we all want to know. Does she have a shot at becoming president? So lets look at the transits happening in her chart during November 2012 and 2016. I’ll spare you the astrological details and just say that her chances in 2012 aren’t good, but she does have a pretty good shot at 2016. She’ll very likely rear her head in a major way at that time.

Obama’s chart:

picture-14

Obama has some amazingly great aspects for 2012 and if he was in a contest with Palin would win hands down. Now if someone came along who had even better aspects for that time period, Obama might not win, but I would doubt it as Obama’s chart would be extremely hard to beat. So I can pretty confidently say that it looks like he will win again in 2012.

Denise,

I have two questions regarding the role of the Christian Right.

Someone asked about Rush Limbaugh’s decline and you responded that his influence would wane. How about James Dobson of Focus on the Family? His influence and the influence of his organization has been tremendous in affecting evangelicals and the Christian Right. Jerry Falwell has passed from the scene. So has James Kennedy. Pat Robertson seems next. Ralph Reed seems to have been neutered. That only leaves Dobson (71) as one of the remaining big names and voices of the Moral Majority and the Christian Right.

Second, will the influence of the Christian Right diminish or surge for 2012? It seems that by pandering to this part of the GOP by adding Palin to the ticket, McCain alienated a sufficient number of moderates and independents who would have otherwise voted for him. Leaders of the GOP assessing the future of their party may decide to limit the role of the CR.

Thanks,
Moonbaby

Hi Moonbaby,

I looked for a DOB on James Dobson, but couldn’t find anything. If you come up with one let me know and I’ll run a chart (even if its solar) and be able to read his future influence with greater detail. My intuition is that the Christian right (if they haven’t figured this out already) is beginning to realize they have been used by the Republican party. Oddly, the inclusion of Sarah Palin on the McCain ticket ought to make this clearer then ever for them. Republicans have no problem playing the family values angle, and “social conservatives,” (ie. how shall I put it nicely: uneducated, isolated rural white America) but God forbid they actually run the party! That was the message coming through loud and clear (between the lines of course) with Sarah Palin. The quote from a McCain aide, “Wasilla hillbillies raiding Neiman Marcus coast to coast,” is a perfect example of this double standard.

Bush appeared to be one of the religious right “social conservatives,” and although he was as dumb as bubble gum stuck to the bottom of a tennis shoe, he had a pedigree. He went to Ivy league schools, his dad was president, he grew up in the halls of power (albeit he was drunk and doing cocaine, but still.) He wasn’t a “hillbilly,” he just seemed like one. 

The splintering in the Republican party is only going to get worse in my opinion because there are two very different sets of Republicans who really share little in common. 1) The “social conservatives,” who want to deny civil rights to people based on their sexual orientation and control other people’s wombs and: 2) The very greedy and privileged, who really don’t care about “social conservative,” issues, they just care about not paying taxes and being crazy squirrels who bury so many nuts in their lawns they can’t even remember where they put them. These people look down on group #1. And group #2 is a very small group, so they desperately need group #1 to horns-waggle and manipulate. The sad thing here is I believe group #1 has naively gone along with their religious leaders, who are busy getting rich and trying to keep their wealth like group #2. 

My point here is, the vast majority of the Republican party, those who are “values voters,” can not be happy that there have been so many shenanigans within the Republican party over the past 8 years from corruption indictments to homosexual romps exposed. These are the people who were horrified Bill Clinton had an affair with a woman. Imagine how hard they took it when they found out Ted Stevens was doing blow with a male hooker and Senator foot tapper was caught in an airport bathroom trolling for gay sex. All this and they didn’t get to overturn Roe vs. Wade! Really, they didn’t even get close. President Bush (the supposed 2nd coming of Christ according to some churches before the 1st election — boy were they wrong!) abandoned them pretty early on, and followed his own interests those of group #2, the one he really belonged to.

I predict there will be a couple of opposite pulls going on in the Christian right. I feel there will be a strong, even more crazy, racist, sexist, nut jobby (not what Jesus would condone in any way) neo-nazi type of arch, and those who are more moderate, and more intelligent who will loose their faith, or move more toward the middle, or the left over the next few years. I feel there will be great polarization in this movement, and it will not really have the strong hold it has enjoyed, but will be more of a fringe group of kind of crazy people who will truly be anything, but Christian.

Tjuania in Desoto, Texas

Hi Denise,

What do the cards say about Bobby Jindal from Louisiana or Mitt Romney? I do think that Obama will win another 4 years and there will not be any mention about Sarah Palin. Also why did the McCain campaign have two separate campaigns going on? One for McCain and the other for Sarah Palin?????

Hi Tjuania,

I have to admit I knew nothing about Bobby Jindal until you asked the question about him. The little bit of research I did makes me wonder so many things about this man, did he convert to Christianity just to get into politics? Why would a person of East Indian descent become a Republican? Or be against abortion in the case of rape or incest? Or be against stem cell research? Especially when he considered going into medicine. 

Since I couldn’t find a time of birth here’s his solar chart:

picture-2

Is it just me or is it chilly in here? No, it’s Bobby Jindal’s chart. Eeeck, he’s icy. Moon in Capricorn, Venus Saturn conjunct in Taurus in the 12th with a Sun and Mercury in Gemini! He may have a grand earth trine depending on the time of his birth, but its safe to say he is very ambitious, lacking in compassion, materialistic and opportunistic with Neptune conjunct Jupiter. He does have a loose grand air trine that makes him extremely intelligent, calculating, strategic and insufferably fixed in his ideas of the way he thinks things should be.

Honestly, his chart gives me the creeps. I hate to say that because I think it’s great that he managed to become governor of a southern state despite the racism he must have faced with both his parents being from India. And I must say I have a soft spot for Hinduism, but alas he’s not a Hindu, his parents are. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bobby, hadn’t been angling for a career in politics since grammar school. And it makes sense that he went for the Republican side as it fits his personality much better than what seems on the surface would seem a more natural fit, the Democrats. I have a feeling this guy isn’t going away and is likely to try a run for the highest office in the land as soon as it seems viable for him to do so. My gut says, he’s power hungry, snobby and arrogant. I’m sure he truly believes he’s better than everyone, and has the right to govern because of it.

OK, now Mitt Romney. I ran a solar chart on him, again no time of birth:

picture-3

You ever get the feeling Mitt is hiding something? Well, that’s because he is, I knew he felt a bit slimy but he’s not as bad as he seems. He actually is pretty sensitive, but he is also extremely secretive. And it looks like he came from money through both his father and his mother’s sides. This is a man who hasn’t had a tremendous amount of struggle in his life, and this is most likely why he can’t really understand what it’s like to be a regular working person.

With so much water in his chart in weak placements it is why he changes his opinions with the wind. It looks like he is a pretty religious guy, and not a bad person if you got to know him, which very few people really do. But he’s very out of touch with ordinary people, and with America as a whole, and I doubt very much he could be much of a leader. His chart doesn’t show strong leadership skills. He’s too passive, and too secretive even though he has this tremendous desire for power that comes from his father. He just doesn’t have the character to live up to that desire. Looking at his chart I don’t see any real chance that he could ever become president.

What will happen to the auto industry Ford and crysler?

Hi Elly,

Here’s Ford’s chart, hint, it doesn’t look good for them right now:

picture-41

By the end of this month Pluto will be conjuncting Ford’s natal Mars, this is not good for their investors, as Mars rules the 8th house of investments. If you own stock, I’d look for a good day to sell it before the 26th of November unless you want to keep it for a very long time. Once this aspect hits off and on over the next year, there will be major losses for investors. Then things will sort of stabilize for awhile, but really the worse is yet to come as Pluto will conjunct Ford’s Pluto in the 10th causing major changes in the way Ford works, and possible relocation of their company. That will come in about 2011 so we don’t have to get too exact right now with that aspect, but after that transiting Pluto (through the 5th house of speculation) will hit the company’s Sun in the 11th and I would say at that point either Ford will come up with some radical new technology, and save themselves, or go out of business. This will be in about 8 years from now.

However, some good news: there is a positive aspect helping the company as Pluto opposes its Mars, transiting Pluto will be making a trine to natal Uranus which is in the 6th and rules the 6th. I would think that this means there will be some sort of bail out for the company that will save jobs at least for the time being. But the stock will go down in value as a result of the opposition. It may have some better days ahead, but its going to go through some serious changes over the next 8 years. And there is a chance with so much Pluto action that the company could fail, and ultimately go out of business.So, its up to you to trust your intuition about this. My gut tells me its going to be all over the place for awhile and will eventually mutate into something else.

I have been feeling the auto industry’s demise since this summer but I’m not sure if I wrote a post exclusively about it although I meant to. I may have mentioned it in relationship to the financial crisis in another post. I meant to do a detailed analysis of this issue, but felt it might seem to obvious a prediction and also got side tracked by the election.

Hope this helps you some.

I will save the other car makers for tomorrow and the following questions! As well as new posts.

Best wishes and many blessings!

Nice site ) I concurr that a bad crash is yet to come on the markets. GM (general motors) is a likely cause for this fall. Do you also see GM been the cause or do you see them been bailed out? Also if i may ask Do you see a time frame for the inevitable war with Iran which also would cause a stockmarket crash and a likely rise dramatically in oil prices.

Thank you )

Hi Denise,
Thanks for this
blog. I really enjoy reading it everyday.
I am curious if you can
find out about the Acr of the Covenant. Is a religious conglomerate hiding it? I suspect it could be the Catholic or Protestant church? When and/or how will it be found? I am really curious as to what it reveal and how it will change our lives.
Thank You
