Our Collective Future

In the heavens there are some gnarly aspects. I won’t get too astrological. But suffice it to say it brought on the Arab Spring, the crash of Wall Street and the world wide economic downturn on its first past. Uranus in Aries gives periods of intense violence (Sandyhook) and of course as I have said in the past would usher in a new age of revolutions across the globe. I have examined many charts for the US. No one really has an exact time so being psychic I decided to tune into what Washington had to say about the actual date when the idea-logical motion of our country was truly set on its course. According to him it was at around 8:30 PM on July the 3rd. Being old timey folk they saw sunset as the beginning of the next day and that is why we celebrate it on the 4th. I went ahead and did a chart for this time. I will also provide you all with the charts other astrologers have worked painstakingly over the years to come up with. Mine will have the transits happening toward the end of May this year. While we will feel these effects starting earlier this will be the period when the people/government and laws will actually push us to deal with the situation.

What we are facing here is a fundamental change in the way our country has functioned. It will mean the degradation of major institutions, the collapse of many institutional systems and that includes many multi-national or giant corporations. The hit will very likely also play out in the stock market – so beware. I’d pull my money out starting now. There are two ways this can be dealt with either Obama fundamentally shifts the system to go around the crisis in which case, he will alter the power or at least take liberty with what power he has been given to change the course, or if the Congress can’t do their job we will see a country we never saw before. One that may resemble in some ways the end of the Soviet Union. With Saturn in Libra in the natal chart being involved of this upcoming Grand Square I think we will also see some major changes in the justice system.

For those 1 per-centers and “corporate citizens” out there all I have to say is I blame you.  If you hadn’t been engineering a plan to take over this country this shift would have been an adjustment not a collapse. But it is also you who will suffer just as much as the rest of us – if not more.

During the 1950s when the wealthiest 1 percent paid 90% tax we were the richest most vibarant economy in the world. It may sound unfair to take home only 10 percent of what you gross. Anyone would agree with that which is how this has changed. However it’s better to get 10 percent of 10,000,000 than to get 85-90% of 100,000. When you take money out of the economy by holding it (those few wealthy one percenters) it can’t circulate and it stays in pocket. But funny thing is when you circulate that money it not only gathers like a snowball going down a giant mountain to return bigger and healthier than before, it allows the entire world to be more productive, creative and forward thinking. We could be using our energy to solve the REAL problems that face our world like GLOBAL WARMING and HUNGER instead of putting 75% of the people into a position where they are just surviving and unable to thrive.

So here is my chart with the natal transits toward the end of the month:

As you can see our country has been blessed with a grand trine (kind of two. Our strength and identity have been in intellectual innovators. This has been the primrose path that has lead us to all the goodies our country has shared with the world. And with Ceres at the top of that trine in the 8th many Wall Street types and investors have made their fortunes off of the innovation and new ideas that the American People have had to offer the world.

With Pluto in the 12th house there has always been a shadow side to our country – a ruling class that has been hidden from obvious view. Later this shadow aristocracy would grow and without our noticing it, become a devouring power. This next square will be the hammer that breaks apart any illusion we have about the realities of our “Republic/Democracy.” We will see the break down of major institutions and unfortunately this will be particularly bad for education on every level which was the fundamental place many of our dreams and imaginings were cultivated for the greater good.

This Pluto in in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries makes a GRAND SQUARE to the natal US SUN in Cancer and NATAL SATURN in libra. What does this mean? It means our paradigm is about to shift radically and we can expect the second major economic down turn – the one I thought would happen in two years. I heard two – I guess it meant second term. It means hold onto your hats. Unless our President can be strong enough in the way Roosevelt was, to push through a real plan and get rid of the idea of these “austerity measures,” it will mean some very rough road ahead for all of us. That means you, too, Donald Trump.

A part of me wonders if there isn’t a secret agenda here to destroy the broken system first so a new one can take its place? That is about as positive of a take I can put on this. This could be the real beginning of the end of our Empire. Either we shift and become part of the world at large and stop being bullies and police dogs, well, then we’ll go down with the ship.

THINGS ARE GOING TO BE FORCED TO CHANGE – RADICALLY. By the time Pluto hits Pluto post-Obama our country will have undergone a major structural change whether we like it or not. My advice to government officials is to make this as painless as possible and take your cues from the Great Depression – the lessons of history. Follow the measures of Roosevelt not Reagan. Unless you want to govern a dead empire.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it will be up to us to force this change to be for the better and not for the worse. Expect the possibility of things getting crazy enough to cause violence.

Here are other charts of the US for you to look at and the ephemeris of May. It’s not going to be a fun month. Expect a lot of job losses especially during this period and major corporations falling as the economy down-slides if austerity measures are put into place – which it seems is the likely scenario right now.

There is always hope for the future if the right people take action. I pray – as should you starting now – that the needs of the people are put over the needs of the wealthiest few.

People may have to not just tighten their belt but consider lifestyle changes – downsizing and even group living situations and pooling of resources to get through this if our government continues down this road.

There is always hope. I suggest we all call our congressmen, senators and the white house as much as possible – e-mail do whatever it takes to let it be known that we have to solve this a different way. There will still be major changes and the ship will have to be righted but it can be done in a much more gentle fashion then where we are headed. And believe me – it will be much more radical and harsh than you can imagine if things continue on this course.

Blessings,

Result of the Palin/Biden Debate October 2… the tarot answers

A reader asked about the results of the Palin/Biden debate October 2… So let’s ask the tarot.

Here’s the answer:

It’s more than a draw then it should be. He will come out the clear winner in terms of understanding the economy, the work force and in terms of experience, but she will bait him emotionally and he will show a bit of the dark side of his personality. He will have to be careful not to seem condescending and snarky which will work to his disadvantage. She has more charisma than people are giving her credit for. She may not be bright, well suited for the job or experienced, but she’s likable and Biden will not have that advantage. It looks like Dem’s will see it as a win for their side and Republicans a win for her. Those who are undecided will be mixed about 50/50.

If he can reign in his dark side then he can win it, but only if he stays on very good behavior which is not his strong suit. And he must stick closely to the issues, not going off on weird tangents.

More clarification with the cards. What the viewing audience will see in terms of Palin: 

The audience in general will like her. She appears confident even if foolish at times, and they will see her as wounded perhaps unfairly, even betrayed. She will be comfortable in that format (all those years in beauty competitions and being a sports caster will help). She will not have a strong grasp of her role or the job of Vice President and will be tongue tied at times, but will appear in control and on top of things in terms of her body language and strong self-confidence (or should I say over-confidence).

What the audience will see in terms of Biden:

He won’t appear to be very likable. He will come across as being secretive (which he is according to his chart, not that this makes him a bad guy, but people generally don’t trust people they feel are holding something back). He will have the tendency to be thrown off his game a bit, following odd tangents, and appear to be over thinking questions. He will not look victorious. On the good side, he will seem a good partner to Obama complimenting his gentleman style with a much more aggressive almost dictatorial personality. He will also come across as a family man, very much in love with his wife (and dead wife.)

Strangely, I would never have thought this reading possible. My intellect thought Biden would tear Palin a new one in the debate, but it looks like it’s not that clear cut as Biden has dark bossy tendencies and tangential thinking that will work against him. Again, he will also seem to be hiding something, what I don’t know. All in all he doesn’t have the charisma and energy of Palin who has nothing else to offer, but that. However, we’ve seen that alone win elections so, again it’s going to be a draw where I would have thought Biden to be a clear winner.

Result of the Palin/Biden Debate October 2… the tarot answers

What is going on with John McCain? the Tarot Answers…

He is now aware that Sarah Palin is a liability. He’s in over his head with the economic crisis. According to the tarot he has checked out, and is deeply afraid of losing. With the tower at the root of his problem it looks like something disastrous really rattled him, we know about the economic crisis but he’s not being entirely upfront as he has the seven of swords reversed in his place of advantage, meaning he’s lying about something. It looks like a combination of things are happening. He’s trying to better position himself politically and thinks this will change the tide of his down turn, but the public is losing confidence in him. I really think the tower card in his case was also news that he is sick. I wrote an earlier post about how his health did not look good according to his astrological chart.

A part of me wonders if he realizes he might not make it long into his presidency and is freaking out because he realizes he’s put the country in a precarious position by nominating Sarah Palin — a woman he barely knew and as he’s getting to know her, he’s lost confidence and doesn’t believe she could take over. Plus his legacy would be: that of the guy who died in office after impulsively selecting a running mate, who would be legendary in how terrible she governed.

Maybe for McCain just being the Republican candidate is enough. I’m beginning to wonder if his subconscious is at war with his conscious mind — a part of him doesn’t really want the job, but just the glory. Perhaps this is why he is being so erratic and impulsive. He’s operating more like a guy in a war, jumping into a fox hole for cover in a crisis, than like a leader.

In an earlier post I looked at McCain’s chart in relationship to the economic crisis, and the economy in general. It looked like cyanide to our economy which we really don’t need right now. So far it looks like his visit to Washington actually set back plans for a bail out. There was bipartisan agreement and they were working out details when McCain showed up. Harry Reed suggested he babbled incoherently during the last few minutes of the meeting and no one understood what he was talking about. 

There are so many missteps in the McCain campaign what Chris Mathews calls “razzle dazzle,” do something crazy to take the heat off when something negative comes up about McCain or Palin. But I think it’s more insane than that. I really don’t think he can handle the stress and is really not cut out to be a leader. He freaks out under pressure and acts irrationally which is a very dangerous quality in a president. I wonder if “Maverick,” isn’t polite code for crazy like in the old days when they called crazy millionaires eccentric.

I really think the whole issue with why he doesn’t want to attend the debate is many fold, but here are some of the key points.

1) He doesn’t want to answer questions about the economy. He doesn’t fully get what’s going on and knows it. He hasn’t had time to cram for that which was supposed to be a later debate, but with it being so prevalent in the press, it will get brought up.

2) It’s all about him. He’s acting as if he’s already won the election — he’s narcissitic and is holding the US hostage while he can, trying to gain as much attention as he can while he can. 

3) He’s afraid Obama will run verbal circles around him and he’ll come off looking like a doddering idiot.

4) A part of him is self-destructive because he knows he’s really not capable of becoming president and is throwing a monkey wrench in his campaign like he did by nominating Sarah Palin without vetting her.

5) He’s having a fight or flight reaction and can’t control himself emotionally.
