Alchemical Furnace of Sagittarius Transforms into the Ice of Capricorn
December 1, 2008: Two stories today really echo the changing of the guard as evidenced by Pluto in Capricorn
It's official: US has been in a recession all year: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance
Good bye irrational exuberance and the unbridled optimism of Pluto in Sagittarius as The NBER -- a private, nonprofit research organization -- said its group of academic economists who determine business cycles met and decided that the U.S. recession began last December.
The second story which finally hit the centrist media today December 1st after an early AM positive Venus-Jupiter conjunction in chilly Capricorn has been talked about by Alex Jones and others like Jim Marrs for years. Like a block of cold ice in a blizzard, this news revelation wasn't needed to restore faith in a flailing American government: Washington Post: 20,000 More U.S. Troops To Be Deployed For “Domestic Security”
The increasing militarization of America is part of a long term agenda to abolish Constitutional rule and establish a “military form of government,” following a large scale terror attack or similar disaster, as Tommy Franks, the former commander of the military’s Central Command, alluded to in a November 2003 Cigar Aficionado piece.
Mars and Sun TSQ Uranus-Saturn an Explosive Trigger
After November's total mandate for change symbolized by the signature aspect of the year Saturn Opposing Uranus on election day November 4th, many much more can happen in December? By the time the fiery Sagittarius New Moon on Thanksgiving November 27th brought some relief and hope, Pluto had entered a new cycle with an ingress into Saturn ruled Capricorn. Pluto represents power and Capricorn the government, the establishment and together they determine major restructuring. Today on December 1st extremist news broke big time in the centrist Washington Post that the U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe. This looks like some major change since the Posse Comitatus Act, a 130-year-old federal law restricting the military's role in domestic law enforcement is now about to be abolished. Looks like we have to look toward Uranus the shock which r moved went direct at 8:08 AM PST on November 27th shortly before the Sagiitarius lunation. The powder keg exploded first with the Mumbai attacks stretched an already thin veneer of peace between India-Pakistan towards a possible full scale confrontation. The November 27th lunation with Mercury-Sun-Moon and Mars in the sign of the archer brought did bring some temporary optimism but the building TSQ to Saturn-Uranus on the Dec. 12th Full Moon. is translating the light from the November 4th opposition. Sun-Mars coming together in Sagittarius (Dec. 5th) is creating a hot aspect that stimulates aggression and bold action on on December 5th the same day. Mercury Squares Uranus and with Mercury (Sag) in 90 degree angle, communications are interrupted and subject to breakdown. Transportation matters are unstable. Shocking news, attacks on authority figures, controversy abounds. To top all this off earthquakes will be grinding the seismic plates all month.
Mars leads the assault on the US Sibley Foundation Chart
One of the primary aspects of the US foundation chart set for July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia at 5:10 PM is the close Mars in Gemini SQ Neptune in Virgo. In our nation's chart this aspect involves a fantasy love-hate relationship between the US military (Mars in Gemini) and our ideals of service orientation (Neptune-Virgo). This is the core aspect of American empire. The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon of December 12th challenges this long standing relationship not only with the annual Moon in Gemini at 21 degrees right on the Sibley Mars the incredibly powerful TSQ which now involves a Grand Cross of which I referred to in the paragraph above. Notice how the biwheel chart above has Sun-Moon Opposing and SQ Saturn-Uranus at all the angles of the Full Moon set for December 12th. This Grand Mutable Cross no doubt will set in motion some revolutionary changes in the thinking and hearts of many Americans about the inviolate nature of their heroic military establishment. With Pisces rising on 12-12-08 it will be the rulers Neptune and Jupiter which will keep things more confused yet diffused.
All those winter signs from Mars-Sun in Sagittarius to a new transit of Mercury into Capricorn to join Pluto for some extreme mental orientation along with Juno-Jupiter also in Capricorn to keep relationships restrained both politically and socially. Yet Venus-N Node, Chiron, Neptune all in Aquarius will be crossing the US democratically oriented Moon @ 27 Aquarius (Sabian: a tree felled and sawed) is that George Washington's cherry tree? By the Inauguration on January 20th a revolutionary spirit will be sweeping the land. By the time Osama is sworn in , Jupiter will have gone into Aquairus and Mercury due to retrograde will spend longer time in Aquarius and Capricorn before joining the collective energy of N Node, Chiron and Neptune.
