The Federal Reserve Chart.... Cap with Moon in Scorpio

Part of the reason why I started this blog was because I wanted to offer up a quick respository of some good astro sights. I know that there are many of us who put up links but that does not mean the cyber world would not benefit by one more blog of links. At least I hope so.

Anyway, David Crook offered up a link to an older article by Bill Meridian about the history of The Federal Reserve. Merrimen mentioned it in his article but Meridian goes into more depth.

No one should be surprised to learn that the Federal Reserve has a Sun in Capricorn with Moon in Scorpio but what I find most interesting is that the Federal Reserve has a North Node in Pisces at 18 degree and South Node at 18 Virgo. Now, for those of you paying attention, Uranus and Saturn will be in opposition to each other at 18 degrees Pisces and Virgo. The first hit of Uranus and Saturn is November 4. The two planets will be opposing one another five times. Each one of these hits will be at different degrees of Pisces/Virgo and then the final one will be in Aries/Libra. But this first one is at the exact degree of The Federal Reserve's Nodes. The challenge when a node takes a hit is if we as Abraham Lincoln said, "Will be touched by the better angels of our nature." Or will we fall into the slippery slope of our south node?

What will the Federal Reserve do with Uranus and Saturn zapping its nodes? And at this same time Pluto the evolutionary planet will be on The Federal Reserve's Sun. How will the landscape change even further? Clearly we are not done.

Ray Merriman does not mince words on Pluto in Cap

I only recently became familiar with Ray Merriman an astrologer who evidently has been around a very long time, well, at least since the old days when Pluto was a planet. I think I read an article by him in (probably) Mountain Astrologer earlier this year. But what really left an impression on me, was when one of my astro gal friends, (thank you, Carol) sent me a link to Ray with a note---"He's the real deal. Very sensible". I immediately opened up the link and proceeded to read one of the toughests takes on Pluto's in Cap I have ever read. Truly, not for the faint of heart. (Lordy!)

But having said that, I do think he has provided a richly researched and thoughtful analysis of the cardinal squares and the other once-in-a century aspects we have coming around the pike. And one thing you gotta say, is any guy who goes back a thousand years to double check his astro challenges is okay with me. Here's to the 21st century Hun's conquering Rome! (just kidding)

Here's a little snippet, go to the link for more data:

Pluto in Capricorn, 2008-2024: “The Good, Bad, Even Worse, and Redemption.” What are the trends we may anticipate during the next 16 years? If history is any guide (and it is to an astrologer), then we can anticipate first new highs in many of the world’s stock markets. This of course means that investors – the wealthy of the world – become even wealthier. But this creates an imbalance in society between the classes. The “haves” have more. The “have nots” have less. Movements begin to raise taxes, and not always of the wealthy. At the same time there are movements by people in power (governments or dictators) to restrict basic rights and liberties. These leaders of the world move to expand their powers, perhaps to the point of acting upon their primal impulses to destroy or massacre certain segments of the world’s population that they believe interfere with their “vision” of a perfect world. And yet these same leaders may act to rebuild the infrastructure of their country, providing important basic needs to communities that support these populations (as well as their own personal legends of being “the greatest” leader of that nation). On the one hand, they do some good deeds. But on the other hand, there is a cost for doing business with these people: you lose your rights, and you may even be the wrong religion or skin color or nationality, and that makes you subject to annihilation because you are a threat to their perfect world vision. Does it have to be this way? Of course not. And in the end - before Pluto leaves Capricorn - these megalomaniacs with an unquenchable lust for total power will likely make critical errors in judgments, just as they have done in the past. Their populations are apt to rise up and throw them out of power. But only after they have first wreaked havoc and destruction of the national pride.

The Sea Has Changed: Scorpio New Moon 2008

The Sea has Changed: Scorpio New Moon 2008
Many of you are well aware of the Uranus/Saturn opposition that will be taking place on November 4. As difficult as it is to imagine, our issues do not get resolved on November 4th--in truth they begin. "Huh? Say it is not so."

Yep, we have got a lot happening during the Scorpio 28 day lunar cycle--Neptune turns direct, Saturn Opposes Uranus (1st of 5 times), Pluto moves into Capricorn, Uranus goes direct. All in one cycle. It is important in my mind for us to get on the right side of these sea changes- I strongly encourage you to read the article. As, always--

I have posted my New Moon article on Margaret Wendt's website---if you have not been there it is chock full of all things metaphysical and more. After you read my article, Be sure and check out here radio shows!Here's a snippet of my Scorpio New Moon Article....

Where should my focus be during this next 28-day cycle?Release the old in order to receive the new. The trick of course is determining what is ‘old’.Ashes to AshesThere is no other way to say it so I am going to cut to the chase, “Welcome to the new world” are you ready?What we have now in front of us is an awakening. Maybe rude, maybe not, but certainly an awakening. There are some astrologers describing the period we are entering as an amazing opportunity for real breakthroughs and solutions. There are also astrologers who will tell you that there is a whole lot of crap coming down and after it arrives, there will be more. Me? I think both are both correct and that they are not mutually exclusive. A lot of stuff is happening and some of it is not nice but there will be solutions ----eventually. note--you have to register to read the whole article..but do not fear, YOU WILL NOT be spammed. I would never participate if I thought that would happen. Spamming is evil, agreed?
