1-11-2010 - The superior conjunction of Venus plus a lot more!
Just as Mercury (retrograde) in close square to Saturn in Libra (ruled by Venus)
has triggered travel disruptions there is the continuing evidence of more restrictions, delays, freezes, and cuts.
Back to Food and Basics
Yes I mean literal freezing or at least per the MSM's multiple articles about January's cold spell. Like: Think Antarctica Is Cold? Try America
Inhospitable, barren, and covered in snow and ice year round, the North and South Pole epitomize frigid conditions. Yet it's currently colder across the United States than at both poles. Does this Fox news sensationalism set the stage for the potential of a major food shortage" Keep in mind that in mundane astrology Venus is connected with the nations resources and finances through bankers, financial institutions and farming. Just as Venus relates to farming and agriculture besides entertainment - Ceres which will be close to he Moon-Antares occultation relates to all food and food related issues from seeds to harvests. (Undoubtedly Monsanto is going to make a major play soon to control all seed production with GMO).
This article appeared today (Jan. 10, 2010) and gives us another big clue to some of effects of the 1-11-2010 significant date - Government cover-up of food shortage feared
Reports show demand growing, production declines estimated at 30%
Quote: "Beginning in 2009, global agricultural markets faced a supply and demand imbalance, caused by a substantial drop in output resulting from the financial crisis and extreme weather around the world."
At the same time, growing economies in Asia have begun consuming record amounts of raw goods, particularly food staples as consumers move to higher protein, higher calorie diets
. When supplies are reduced and demand is constant or growing, prices normally rise. Industry observers and economists remained mystified by the low agricultural prices in spite of this trend.
Back on January 5thWinter storm hits South hard. This really hits home how scarce conditions can arise along with struggles when a major Capricorn alignment persists and is in orb of a square with Saturn. Florida farmers prepared for a long week trying to protect their crops. In Polk County – between Tampa and Orlando – temperatures were in the high 20s and strawberry farmers turned on sprinklers to create an insulation of ice for the berries. Notice the frozen icicles on the Florida orange tree above.
Superior Conjunction of Venus-Sun in Freezing Capricorn
The date of tomorrow's superior conjunction of Venus to the Sun and in close orb to N Node : 1-11-2010 keeps coming up.
In Washington DC the conjunction perfects @ 4:05 PM EST. Sun-Venus @ 21 Capricorn 32
Sabian Symbol for 22 degrees Capricorn: "A general accepting defeat gracefully." or another more colorful version with emphasis on battle-agression relating to tomorrow's
lunar occultation of the fixed star Antares circa 9 degrees 48 Sagittarius close to Ceres.
"In the gladiatorial arena, two men armed with swords are locked in mortal combat, the first is a foul mouthed slave the second an aristocrat." This image of combat pits the elite vs the serf and reminds us of mercenaries like
Blackwater - the 21st century ready to kill for reward. In mundane astrology Venus can relate to war - especially when a war is being fought to right wrongs or change a balance of power, or involvement with negotiations leading to peace. A war fought to right wrongs and with Saturn in Libra (the placement of Saturn in the US July 4, 1776 Chart)
Sound Familiar - Yemen, Afghanistan,Iraq, Somalia, Palestine and on and on.
This article nails the other essence of tomorrow's date forcing the reality right in all our faces The Military-Industrial Complex is Ruining the Economy
Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz says that the Iraq war will cost $3-5 trillion dollars.
Looking at the chart below, we see a lot is happening which relate to constant conflict and struggle: two TSQ's - Mercury-Juno-Asc + Saturn-Mercury-Juno all in feisty
cardinal signs. A Yod or Finger of Destiny is formed with : Hygeia (Leo)Sun-Venus-N Node(Capricorn) Uranus (Pisces) and a Thors Hammer with Mercury-Juno-Hygeia
Undoubtedly health per Hygeia. Hygeia, daugher of the god of medicine, Asclepius per Roman Myths was goddess of health, cleanliness and sanitation and the Moon ruler of tomorrow's chart. She was associated with the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health (the source of the word "hygiene".)
The superior conjunction occurs Venus is high in its cycle, direct in motion and moving swiftly. In other words the "superior conjunction" occurs when Venus is at apogee - the point of farthest excursion and is called the apoapsis or superior position above the Earth. In fact This occurs when Venus is on the other side of the Sun. Some derivative terms from apogee and perigee are perihelion and aphelion, referring to orbits around the Sun. Where there is the seductive, fertile Venus there is the warrior Mars.
Apogee and Perigee.
Mars makes its closest approach or perihelion to Earth on January 27 when it lies 61.7 million miles away. Mars also reaches opposition, or opposite from the sun in the sky as seen from Earth, on January 29. This marks Mars shining at its brightest (magnitude -1.3) yet retrograde bringing anger and passion to a boiling point.
Mars also reaches opposition, or opposite from the sun in the sky as seen from Earth, on January 29. This marks Mars shining at its brightest (magnitude -1.3) and when it will be visible all night. The moon reaches perigee, or its closest point in its orbit to Earth, on January 30, when it is 221,577 miles away. This is the closest perigee of the year for the moon all year!
In case you haven't guessed Jan. 29, 2010 is a Full Moon in Leo with Moon-Mars in a powerful opposition to Sun-Venus-Chiron-Neptune in Aquarius. We also see Saturn ancient ruler of Aquarius ready to perfect another square with Pluto - the destroyer on Jan. 31st..
January 11th's Morning Antares Occulation
On January 11, 2010, Antares experiences the last occultation of the current series that's practical to observe from any populated place on Earth. So tomorrow we have a conjunction of the Moon with the star called "the Heart of the Scorpion". Antares, one of the Royal Stars of Persia aka one of the archangel stars - Oriel (Antares) Watcher of the West.
Tomorrow's January 11, 2010 date = 3.
Another piece of synchronicity and this came from an article from the VigilantCitizen Website - The Occult Semi-Subliminals of Jay-Z’s “On to the Next One”
"Shortly after the American continent said goodbye to 2009, Jay-Z came on TV and said “On to the Next One”. The video premiered on 01/01/10, which in Kabbalistic numerology equals 3 (0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 1+ 0 = 3). The number 3 is an important theme of the video. The release date also contains three 1’s, which is reminiscent of the three bars representing Jay-Z’s album The Blueprint 3. This is just an example of the occult aura surrounding Jay-Z latest works."
Hey I always thought the number 3 was about the artist, the creative, design and balance? with professions like Entertainer, writer, actor, musician. When we look at some of the weakness which are associated with the number 3, we start to put together the meaning of
1-11-10=3. Per instance - 1-11-10 =3 irresponsible, moody, emotional and vulnerable, lack focus and discipline and difficulties with handling monelack focus and discipline and you might have difficulties with handling money - A BIG CLUE to FINANCIAL EVENT TOMORROW.
Remember that Venus is connected with the nations resources and finances through bankers, financial institutions and farming.
