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.
