Occupy Wall Street - The Astrology


The MSM per MSNBC and Dylan Ratigan are talking about the #Occupy Earth movement expanding
out of the Occupy Wall Street efforts to bring justice and fairness.
Even though the building emotions of protest, frustrations and rage are fired up with the Aries Full Moon, it is time to take a minute and get an overview. Even though the locomotive (Fixed Grand Cross) may have already left the station, let's step back look back thru astrological eyes. We will examine the tranists and aspects concerning the inception of #OWS movement which began on Sept. 17th.
Wall Street Protest Begins, With Demonstrators Blocked
From this article:
As it turned out, the demonstrators found much of their target off limits on Saturday as the city shut down sections of Wall Street near the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Hall well before their arrival.

By 10 a.m., metal barricades manned by police officers ringed the blocks of Wall Street between Broadway and William Street to the east. (In a statement, Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman said, “A protest area was established on Broad Street at Exchange Street, next to the stock exchange, but protesters elected not to use it.”)

I have set the chart below for 9 AM with Saturn on the ascendant and Mars @ 29 degrees Cancer 03 minutes. First of all the Sabian Symbol for Saturn @ 18 degrees Libra seems appropriate:
"Two people who have to give an accounting for their acts before the tribunal of society." Even more symbolic is that the Sabian for Mars @ 30 degrees and standing right at Mid-Heaven - "A daughter of the American Revolution"
This seems pretty obvious as a grass roots movement where standing up for an ideal during a crisis situation that demands involvement.
On Sept. 17th @ 7:06 AM EDT there was the powerful opposition of Venus (libra) and Uranus (aries) This aspect is always about how limits and the rules are challenged by radical behaviors.
also Venus represents values and money in opposition to Uranus - demand for freedom.
Also Mars (physical activity) was in the last degree of Cancer relating to dwelling, making a home or "Occupation"

One day later on Sept. 18th., Mars the planet of action, desire, will power and the stuff of heroes and conquerors had entered Leo. Mars in Leo is about getting noticed and changed the entire complexion both astrologically and qualitatively by switching from the cardinal mode of reaction to a Fixed train ride that was gaining power.
Jump forward to Oct. 1st when the occupation at Wall Street was in to it's 2nd week
and Mars was square Jupiter in Taurus. Taurus is the sign most associated with the NYSE-DOW
since the NYSE (founded via the Buttonwood agreement on May 17, 1792 ) has Sun-Mercury conjunct in Taurus. Also Jupiter-Neptune are conjunct in Libra and oppose Saturn-Moon in
Aries - Highly Speculative to say the least. We might also say that there is a fragile confidence with this opposition so that markets will go up and down reflecting security concerns. This foundation chart for the NYSE (the original target for #OWS) has an idealistic, fantastical, intoxicating and even delusional conjunction.
Since Jupiter/Neptune oppose Saturn there is brew which combines the see saw of optimism and pessimism - the stuff of hedge funds and arbitrage. Money never sleeps.

How long will this open-ended, open-source movement last?
If the fixed grand cross takes hold after October 13th when Mercury enters Scorpio it should
last at least till October 28th? and the end of the Unity Wave.
Maybe the fixed stars rising, culminating and setting over NYC on Sept. 17th will tell us more...

Fixed Stars for the Sept. 17th Chart.
I am not going to examine all the Fixed Stars in paran or aspect for the start of OWS
but I will not the more important ones .

Heliacal Rising Star and Fixed Stars with Ascendant
Alphard is the orange star in the neck of the Watersnake and is Rising 92 mins 06 secs before Sunrise so it may not be that big a deal though.
Per Brady - To lead a life close to the edge, or to seek intense emotional encounters - Good description when we look at how much emotion has been generated.
Per Robson: when Alphard is rising we have much trouble, anxiety and loss in connection with estates and building; addicted to women and intemperance.

Alphecca is a brilliant white star in the Northern Crown (Corona Borealis) - Rising at the Ascendant orb 03 mins 55 secs. Per Robson and Noonan it has the nature of Venus and Mercury. They both consider Alphecca as conveying honor, dignity and artistic ability. yet like all Venusian stars it can also have its undesirable effects
Opportunities in life that are followed by hardship or loss
