In August 2008 during the Russia-Georgia-Ossetia war. George Bush,
Condoleezza Rica and other dignitaries solemnly invoked the sanctity of the
United Nations, warning that Russia could be excluded from international
institutions “by taking actions in Georgia that are inconsistent with” their
principles. The sovereignty and territorial integrity of all nations must be
rigorously honored, they intoned – “all nations,” that is, apart from those
that the US chooses to attack: Iraq, Serbia, perhaps Iran, and a list of
others too long and familiar to mention.
Matthew the Astrologer tells of a good plan for using the Sun and Moon in the natal chart for those trying to conceive a wee one!
And one may suppose the opposite may operate – when to avoid the deed astrologically if you’re not ready for a little bebbie at the moment!
At Stars Over Washington the US natal chart (Sibly version, July 4, 1776; 5:10 pm LMT; Philadelphia) has been published with September 2008’s transits to the chart, including a bit about tomorrow’s 7th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11/01:
You’ll find financial indications and the Fed part of the September transit picture as well.
In Astrology we first think ‘Saturn square Saturn’ when we hear the words, ‘7 years’ – but the square of transiting Saturn to 9/11’s Saturn is actually not until Sept 26.
Generally when Saturn squares its natal position, there is little flexibility in current circumstances, and people and situations are busy imposing rules, restrictions, and formalities – exercising authority, as it were…plus, fear and seriousness are definitely part of this time frame – no one needs Astrology to tell them that.
(Everyone has a first Saturn-SQ-Saturn to their natal charts – around age 7 when our baby teeth are lost and we become more mature with our adult teeth.)
But the good news is: all this is temporary, for Saturn is the ruler of Time and the promoter of facing reality and responsibilities as karmic debts must be paid off eventually. In fact, the more devotedly we cooperate with Saturn, the more the Old Man likes it. He may even give a helping hand to those who learn his lessons well – especially when there are long-term endeavors involved and a good understanding of what’s at stake.
Therefore, the more individuals wisely cooperating with Saturn, the better it is for the collective as a whole.
But getting all the facts from our government – now that’s the deal-breaker and the tooth-puller, isn’t it?
