Iran…

Uranus is at 4 degrees Cap in modern Iran’s first house, opposite Jupiter and Neptune, inconjunction the natal Moon in Gemini, square the Sun in Libra and making a sextile to Saturn in Pisces in the 2nd house.

What the hell does all of this mean, Denise? All the obnoxious astro jargon, let’s get on with the analysis.

When transiting Pluto hits natal Uranus in a person’s chart it’s like a mini-nuclear bomb goes off in their life. They have a tendency to blow everything up, much to their later chagrin. This is when you find stories of husbands leaving the love of their life for their overweight alcoholic secretary because she tells him how nice he looks everyday so she can get a promotion. She wants to sleep her way to a better paying job (men do this, too and it does happen unfortunately on both counts) and he wants someone to make him feel special. When she gets the better job and he’s filed for divorce and now the other woman has dumped him for her long time love, he’s lost, regretful and has completely destroyed his former life.

When a person is more evolved he/she sees the freight train coming before hand and jumps off the tracks. Unfortunately, those that possess the foresight to do so are extremely rare. We are by nature an extremely myopic race, most often only able to see what is directly in front of us. So Uranus hitting Pluto is a game changer, an explosive one at that. Think even of the roots of the two elements used for nuclear energy and or bombs, uranium and plutonium. Really, this is not a coincidence. As a matter of fact Pluto was found around  the development, production and dropping of the atomic bomb. These energies are big, universal and explosive and Iran being as unstable as it is one can only speculate that there is to be major instability, war or civil unrest brought on by this conjunction.

In the 1960s just the transiting conjunction of Uranus and Pluto was enough to cause the sexual revolution, war and the vehement anti-war movement, civil unrest and the health food movement (the transit planets were both in Virgo) and also the decline in wages leading to the death of the American dream. It  also coincided with a huge drop in the population (due to the advent of the pill and other things). Those who are commonly referred to Gen-X’ers are the smallest in number around the world. My definition of Gen-X is astrological and goes from about 1956/57 until 1969/1979. These people have in common Neptune in Scorpio (thus the obsession with the occult, often unusual sexual proclivities and all things hidden, secret or occult) and Pluto in Virgo which brings with it a desire to be of service, interest in health and healthy living, alternative medicine, natural foods, and unfortunately also brought us lower wages on the whole and perpetual financial problems. Many of us have had to change careers many times over (Virgo is a mutable sign ruled by Mercury) which has made it imperative to change in order to survive.

The super ultra extra generation X-ers are t hose born with Uranus in Virgo conjunct Pluto in Virgo. That configuration started around 1962 and ended around 1968. These people are rebellious by nature, challenging, bright and often visionary but they can often take awhile to find their true path and often feel lost or overwhelmed. They are often late bloomers.

But back to Iran. Transiting Pluto will be conjunct the natal Uranus (in the first  house) starting next year. This will mean there will be radical changes in the way the country sees itself. Most likely there will be a two-fold situation going on, the young and the liberal people will desire an end to their current government and the conservative rule it represents (Capricorn.) And the government itself will feel overly confident about its power in the world and feel it has the world by the balls (so to speak) it therefore could act out irrationally and push boundaries which will probably be triggered by the sanctions put on the country (again in Capricorn – money, career, lively hood, etc.)

My best guess is an uprising from the young people there to overthrow the government and for the government to act out globally therefore crushing the uprising inside the country as the irrational acts of the government will endanger the lives of all those within Iran’s boarders. Again this is very likely a war aspect, being in the first house I would say that it will probably start from within and work its way out. The best case scenario would be a change in the government, a restructuring based on what the people want there and an ousting of their present configuration which is very possible. Let’s hope the struggle stays internal and they just give themselves a face lift or rather a brain transplant. We shall see as we have the power to change our future and the people of Iran still have the power to steer their country toward a brighter future for themselves rather than an international entanglement.

Best wishes and happy holidays,

Denise

Hi Everyone,

There are a lot of questions about stocks and the economy, so that will be the bulk of tonight, but I’m trying to mix it up a little so it’s not soooo much about that. So here goes. The first question comes from Jean.

Jean

Hi Denise,

You asked for more information on the mutual funds I inquired about.
MEURX – Mutual European (Z fund) – Fund inception date is 7/3/1996
MDISX – Mutual Discovery (Z fund) – Fund inception date is 12/31/1992
I don’t know if this matters or not, but in November 1996, Heine Securities Corporation, known for the Mutual Series of funds, merged into the Franklin Templeton complex.

Thanks.

Hi Jean,

Here are the charts of both funds analysis to follow:

picture-14

It looks like MEURX will really be hit hard when transiting Pluto through the 5th (house of speculation) makes an exact opposition to its Mercury in Cancer in the 11th (house of hopes and dreams). Also Mercury rules the second house of work and everyday sort of money flow, as well as ruling 2 planet, Venus=money(in this case) and Mars how the fund is perceived. They are both wedged in the 10th which is also another important earth/money house. I would move my money into a different fund if I were you before late January. Specifically right around inauguration. So move it before then.

MDISX will fair better until about the 20th of January 2010 when transiting Pluto will be at 4 Cap making an exact square to the funds moon which has involvement in the 5th house of speculation but mostly rules the 6th house. So I’d guess there will be some bizarre fluctuations in the value of the fund during this time, sort of irrational in nature. But it will settle down and it won’t see major changes until Jan. 2010 when perhaps new laws will take place forcing (more then likely many areas of the market) to adjust. It will be more in its business practices and ideology. So I’d say this fund looks healthier for the time being.

Hope that helped.

Okay, this scared the crap out of me:

http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/12/02/terror.report/index.html

Do you have anything to say on the likelihood of a bioterror attack in the next 10 years (or much sooner) that will wipe out millions of people?

I’m freaked!

ylem

just to add to my post: The fear of a bioterror attack is in some ways paralyzing, as it makes working towards anything feel pointless – what’s the use if our world will be in ruins in less than five years? Give us some hope, please!

Hi Ylem,

I read the article you sent a link to. It is really, really, really scary. 

I have been thinking about this a lot lately, especially with what happened in Mumbai. And especially when looking at the charts of India and Pakistan, and seeing the upcoming transits over the next few years, and the direction the planets are headed.

I got scared when I realized that we weren’t that far off from Uranus hitting Aries. That revelation felt very bad. 

Uranus smacks Aries in March of 2011. My read on this is: sudden and explosive violence. Especially, as it will near a square to Pluto. These two warring planets will clash (square each other exactly) in August of 2012. We had better get our act together rounding up terrorists and spreading good will and compassion. I hate to say what this could bring. I will do more analysis on it over time. I don’t want to jump to conclusions right now. We have time to turn this potentially deadly aspect into something more innocuous, but it will be a hard ship to turn around. I’m not going to lie about that.

Good news though, we do have free will and we have the power to choose love and compassion, kindness and fairness over whatever crazy bee drove into those terrorists’ types heads. Sometimes I feel there is an almost sick sexual fetishism of murder really driving these people, more than any pretended belief they have in God. Because I’ll say one thing no one who is spiritual believes in killing anyone for any reason. And any religion or branch of a religion that preaches this is not a religion, its a political power machine using naive people to brainwash through fear so they can do the dirty work of those leaders who manipulate them and blindly seek power.

OK, enough of my going on about that. It makes me so angry. I wish there was a way to round up all the terrorists and make them sit around a campfire and listen to Kumbayah for a year, do some knitting, talk about their feelings, go through some therapy and deprogram them from their crazy- maker leaders. Most of these people are young men who have no way to feel important, and aren’t allowed to express their sensuality or sexuality except through this horrible violence. It’s a terribly sick combination. A stew of rotten meat, and I’m afraid we’ve all been guilty of not addressing it. I think the whole, “Well, it’s a cultural thing,” thing is part of the problem. Not that we should take control of their lives. I do think these groups pray on very impoverished, angry, probably abused souls who haven’t seen any other option in life. We owe it to all of our brothers and sisters to at least show them that there are other ways of seeing, believing, feeling, and help them live in dignity, not just ignore them, relegating them to deserts of the world to starve in, while we live it up. It’s no wonder they hate us. We are so decadent compared to them.

I really hope instead of bombing Pakistan and Afghanistan and Iraq and trying to control the Muslim world militarily, we try to lift them up and befriend them. That’s the only way we are going to make this world work.

Blah, blah, blah…

OK, power speech: this is why it is crucial for everyone to live up to their highest potential and do whatever little thing you can to change the hearts and minds of those around you for the better.  

If you imagine we are all drops of water in this sea of humanity, (check out the book, “The Messages in Water,” if you get a chance) and by being more loving and kind we actually effect the whole sea. We don’t have to become President or be a famous movie star or whatever, just being loving changes the world for the better.

Anyway, it’s 4 AM now I’m going to answer the next bunch of questions tomorrow.

Best wishes to all.

Denise

Sorry everyone down there! I’ll get to you soon!

Denise, Thank you for the charts on Boeings. Here is some info on Airbus that I found -Airbus Industrie was formally established as a Groupement d’Interet Economique (Economic Interest Group or GIE) on 18 December 1970.
2000 three of the four partner companies (DaimlerChrysler Aerospace, successor to Deutsche Airbus; Aérospatiale-Matra, successor to Sud-Aviation; and CASA) merged to form EADS. If this doesn’t help – I’ll keep searching but I appreciate your efforts of trying. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Dear Denise,

Thank you for your analysis and insights. In these troubled times on a lot of fronts ( financial, physical and even spiritual ) you provide clarity and hope.

I have two questions.

1 – Urban survival. In which timeframes do you see possible shortages of food and basic necessaties?
2 – When will the dollar downtrend and demise commence?

To readers of this blog, please do google “urban survival” and make some basic preparations.

Peace

Wei

Hi Denise:
Great postings!
Wondering about Citicorp (c). I think you ran a chart, but I didn’t find the interpretation for it. Given recent bail outs, will it survive?
If you have time, I am wondering about US Steel (x) and Freeport-McMoRan Copper and Gold, Inc (FCX), Google (GOOG), Intel (INTC), Foster Wheeler Ltd. (FWLT), Procter & Gamble (PG), and Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation (BNI).
Many Thanks,
Wei

Hi : Very interesting

On the prediction that India will hit Pak sites, I wonder whether this could happen thru US, becos it seems more likely that Obama will use his power to persuade Pak to let US take on the training camps etc in Pak. Don’t see India doing this unless we continue to get hit like 26/11. May be you could run a chart for US vis-a-vis Pak and see how it looks…

I woke up with the feeling that the credit crisis wasnt the cause of the market crash at the end of Dec/ Jan

northernlights2008

Any thoughts on the two unresolved Senate races in Minnesota and Georgia? I think you predicted the Senate would get close to 60 seats a few weeks back. I wonder what the cards say closer to the evantual realities. Thanks!

Iris

Another question. Some of Obama’s supporters are up in arms about the people he is choosing to work in his Administration. They feel that they have been betrayed. Will the Disgruntled Dems. get over it in time or will they hold a grudge for the next 4 years?

 

Thanks! -)

Will Arnold Schwartzenegger be joining Obama’s cabniet? I thought when Obama said a top Republican would be on his cabniet, it would be Arnie. Now he’s picked Gates to stay on as Sec. of Defense. Since some very conservative Christians are in top level positions in the military, this seems to be a wise move aimed at keeping them calm. What’s up for the Governator after his term runs out?

Here’s his birth information: 30 July 1947, Thal, Styria, Austria (Taken from his bio on Internet Movie Database)
Birth Time: 04:10 (04:10 AM) MEDT(-1:00) (taken from Lois Rodden’s AstroDatabankhttp://www.astrodatabank.com/nm/SchwarzeneggerArnold.htm )

Thanks in advance!

PS

I sure hope he will be. After four years of having to look at Bush and Cheney, this lady would appreciate someone up there easier on the eyes. LOL
