Patrick Wood, Editor of *The August Review, has weighed in on the Lehman Bros bankruptcy and what’s up next, if you’d care to take a look:
Patrick points out that American investors and POLITICIANS laughed when Fortis Bank told the truth in a report on June 28, 2008 with their view from Brussels:
“Fortis expects a complete collapse of the US financial markets within a few days to weeks.”
A self-fulfilling prophecy? American politicians shining us on? Our financial system is “fundamentally sound,” is how Bush was putting it, if memory serves, along with half-hearted band-aid statements from Bernanke, Paulson, and the other finance dudes. Perhaps they all had a gander at the August 16 Lunar Eclipse chart and the Solar Eclipse chart of August 1 (the Series in which the NYSE was hatched on May 17, 1792.)
So now the genie is out of the bottle according to Warren Buffet (see previous post on derivatives), and with the myriad of cares and worries in MY little life, I must begin this autumnal season having to be concerned about how the financial “EXPERTS” of the world screwed up the world’s economy – and I can’t even trust them to be telling the truth as yet!
Moreover we’ve got: chickens coming home to roost, more shoes dropping, and the attacks of 9/11/01 reverberating throughout. And it will soon be time for Saturn’s square to its position on 9/11….the 7-year itch.
Oh well. At least China got theirs with the Fannie-Freddie taxpayer-funded bail-out.
Seems I’ve blabbed already on Neptune’s current visit to the NYSE’s natal Pluto (dissolution of power; loss of ability to cope.) Yep. I did. And on the hit NYSE’s natal Mars 18Vir+ took with Sep 11, 2007′s Solar Eclipse. Ugh.
So I’ll stop squawking for now since Wall Street titans and the NYSE have already laid the golden egg.
* have just added The August Review feed to sidebar - you’ll spy it above the Flickr photos.
Here’s a linky-rich article George Washington wrote on his Blog about derivatives – what they are, why they matter, and who’s been hawking and hiding them for years:
On NPR I’m hearing chickens coming home to roost concerning Lehman Bros lack of a buyer and it reminded me of Sep 11, 2007′s Solar Eclipse which happens to be the Series in which Fed chairman Ben Bernanke was born – aka his Pre-natal Eclipse Series.
2007′s Solar Eclipses last manifested in 1989.
As it happens, I have a few astrology clients who got worked over rather badly by this Eclipse on a personal level. It’s the 9 New South Series which Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’ gives as:
bringing to the surface long-term worries about loved ones, health, or paperwork and communications issues; a worrying piece of news received – any news has a sense of destiny or fatedness about it; responsibilities with paperwork coming home to roost.
Along with Wall Street’s chickens.

And remember stocks plunging in November 2007?
Seems Wall Street is almost dead and I’m not feelin’ so well myself…howbowchu?
Is the August 16 Lunar Eclipse’s paranoia making itself felt? Emotions play a large part in meltdowns, so stop it, Y’all. Calm down. You know the good folk of England are suffering now as well, and in New York tomorrow, time is running out for Lehman Bros, among others.
The fact that so many institutions and systems are global makes the fall – worldwide. Not such a brilliant plan unless you Want the crash to be worldwide. And it is. Congratulations, world bankers.
Well, in the olden days of ritzy Robber Barons, JP Morgan rode to America’s rescue. Yet all the power elite can blab now is: Obama’s tax relief plans would use taxation to “redistribute wealth.”
Isn’t that what America needs? this blogger asked innocently enough.
Yet if a pittance of the Robber Baron class’ wealth were shared with the middle class (forget the poor for now) we’d all be out spending and the country would be in better financial condition instead of the mess the financial “experts” have plunked us into. That it was purposeful I don’t doubt (all for the NWO), but even they may miss us when we’re gone as they laze about Dubai high rise balconies and lounge around on their Paraguay patios, umbrella drinks in hand.
Nah. They won’t miss us. They’ve ‘got theirs’ by hook and by crook. And there seems to be no JP the Second riding in on a white horse to share the moola and keep our nation from drowning underneath the waves which the monied class helped create with usury interest rates on loans that never pay off, and by buying off the US Congress to pass legislation balanced totally in their favor and against the common good.
You know, if several of our well-heeled, oft-touted, and much-toasted billionaires – the ones who made their wealth on our backs – would conglomerate a few of their big bucks together, some honest bailing out could make a real difference about now.
But what are the odds that old JP will rise up and ride again to the rescue?
His modern progeny don’t seem to be interested in anything but forcing and finagling a new economic system, and with the help of Pluto (soon to be in Capricorn again) the deconstructing of all systems is right on track for all but the common good.
Read my Page on JP Morgan’s natal chart and transits where I blabbed more about the current financial crisis than I remembered until just now when I read it again myself…it was written at the time of the Bear Stearns farce and is still the current Lunar Eclipse season (the next one is on Feb 9, 2009 at 21Leo):
You’ll find details on the Lunar Eclipse of August 16 and its market paranoia in the sidebar, too.
And you know what I always say (actually you don’t but I’m about to tell ya) – playing stock market with the criminals of the Wall Street gentry is nothing but gambling, it’s just as stacked in favor of the house as Vegas is, and you know where it all eventually leads. To the alms house.
And let’s remember that all through 2009 we’ll have the Great Conjunctions of Jupiter and Neptune, the Speculating pair, which will occur upon the US natal Moon in Aquarius. Their last conjunction was at 27Cap09 (Jan 9, 1997), conjunct US n Pluto; and on Jan 19, 1984, they met at World Point, 00Cap01 – where Pluto soon will return during the last week of November, ’08.
This gives a midpoint picture of no comfort whatsoever, but you may as well know…
Jup/Neptune = Pluto: plans unreasonable beyond measure; far-reaching speculations; a great loss; major adjustment of life circumstances; self-projection out of hand (Ebertin; Tyl.)
And in 2009: Jup/Neptune = US n Moon: dreaminess; an emotional swoon; going with the wind (or is that, Gone With the Wind?); losing oneself in plans; involved in speculation; instability; wastefulness.
The point is, this triggering of a past hook-up of ‘the Speculators,’ indicates similar issues from 1984 cropping up in 2009.
1984 was a year of two Solar Eclipses: 4 North (29Tau) and 4 South (1Sag)…I must bark more about these Eclipses as time permits…and please remind me if I forget!
In spite of mainstream media reports today in praise of the homecoming rally in favor of Sarah Palin, there was a second grassroots rally held on the grounds of the Anchorage Library which, by Mudflats’ eyewitness report, was larger still!
Personally I’m calling it a ’shadow rally’ because I think there are a few shadows following Palin around:
