America’s fireworks supply has been all but cut off but meanwhile China has its own problems.
Another fork-tailed G-8 Summit overlooms our heads: elite celebrators, poor things with so much to Deal With and all. Global financial collapse is only a part of the agenda but the woe-unto-us play must be performed. Behind the curtain, chaos is engineered so that rebirth may occur.
Like all mortals, these monsters are born in some dark, upper northeastern pumpkin patch so soon to be ice crystal-laced and frosted amid autumn winds whipping down from Canada.
America, my only nag in the race, is hobbled and maimed as her soldiers so brave and foolhardy as to trust a shady oilman in the White House KNOWING that the commander-in-chief’s position, one of the few of our idealistic concepts upon which we base our American identity–knowing that a civilian personage will be directing, or in Bush43′s case – misdirecting, them toward his every whim, quioxtic notion, and plan of plunder.
Or, using a wider perspective, the ‘secret hand’ which pulls the strings and works in tandem with the USA’s secret or shadow government ( = Saturn/Neptune -> natally at MC in the US chart July 4, 1775; 5:10 pm LMT; aka Sibly chart…*Sat/Nep = MC: materialism vs idealism; undermining circumstances; renunciations; suffering; emotional depression; seniors, the poor and/or the ill; a peculiar character; capitulating to the demands of the environment totally; giving up; an odd loss of ambition; moodiness) is on the march toward goose stepping innocent people over a cliff of cold-hearted totalitarianism, a Pluto/Chiron -ism of anguish undergirded with the few who believe they merit a higher bunk because they can.
Well, I want to blurb a bit on America’s Solar Return 2008, effectively exact this evening of July 4 at 7:13:32 pm EDT, Capitol Building, Washington DC.
In Asian markets today, oil may be nearing $150 barrel, so we’ll see about that. Peak oil, you say?
And as noted last evening, the major banks of Europe have pulled the plug on America…the noose is tightening fast, as per their plans. If we’re soon parted, Lone Reader, it may be a question of survival in the region which has always tended to suffer from being situated in the (lovely) southeastern US.
Wish someone could keep Bush from fouling Thomas Jefferson’s property today. The symbolism is stomach-turning – not that Jefferson was perfection, but he did more for the common man than the Bush dynasty denizens would ever care to do.
With her Solar Return Sun in 7th house of Partnerships and Legal Affairs, the US won’t be in control for the year (until July 4, 2009) so Venus in Cancer accompanies the Sun with 24Gem48 on the Descendant, the 7th house cusp. This is the degree of rebel Uranus’ Discovery in 1781, in the crux of the American and the French Revolutions.
Moon 9Leo02 is in 8th house of Shared Resources, Credit, Debt, Insurance, Legacies, Transformation; Death and Rebirth, hidden matters, and the subconscious. Many levels has life and the Astrology that attempts to describe it in astrologese.
9Leo02 puts the Solar Return (SR) Moon upon George (you’ll find links to a few notes on this and other Eclipses on my Pages list.)
Moon/Mercury = perception; feelings influence thinking; receiving mental stimuli; extension of one’s intellectual horizons; exposure to criticism; exchange of thoughts with females; adaptation; sympathy; family communications; an authoress; young girls; language talents.
The 2008 Solar Return chart for America has her natal Saturn 15Libra at its Midheaven, the Aspiration and Career Point showing America’s Public Standing for the year (Return charts are good for the duration of the orbit, in this case, Earth around Sun.)
Ascending is 24Sag48 with Pluto rising at 29Sag28 Rx, indicating events occurring underground – and at a crisis or critical 29th degree. Actually, Pluto has backed into Sag again for a last hurrah at the “A Pope Blessing the Faithful” degree…and I’m sure he does. But what mission are they fulfilling to be blessed for? Pluto is aka, the saboteur, as you know.
Chart-ruler Jupiter Rx is in 1st house as well – 18Cap02, the NWO degree of Uranus conj Neptune, 1993. It would take more than one entry to cover the subject socio-politically concerning the new cycle of those two transpersonal planets so I must direct you to the ~interweb~ and to the many astrologers’ articles on this heavyweight pair of Sky and Sea. (Mary Shea taught me to ignore Rxs in a Return chart except as transits which will subsequently affect the chart through Stations and House re-entries, ongoing conjs to midpoints, etc.)
Mars and Saturn, not a pleasant combo of energies unless you apply them efficiently to direct or channel energy, are almost conjunct now – Mars 1Vir58 and Saturn 4Vir53 – this stop-go pair is in 8th house with tr SN between them and the Moon in Leo. 8th house cusp 1Leo10 is conj Barack Obama’s n Mercury…he speaks and mega-monies appear?
Mars/Saturn now approach a zodiacal area of difficult stars so archetypal performances may be expected on the world stage of the victim/savior variety as well as debt talk on the campaign trail and in Japan at the G-8 Summit.
Those in the catbird seat are schmoozin’ in Japan.
Mainly, the US Solar Return 2008 contains a representation of our current Jupiter-opposite-natal-Sun transit, a time when no one is impressed and money sources dry up as in Europe now against the US.
Yet this too will pass, and since I’ve previously blathered on about it here and at:
I shall not do so again on this, our nation’s 232nd birthday.
North Node, Chiron, and Neptune, a spiritual and watery trio, is in 2nd house of Earnings and Money so more financial difficulties are on the menu esp if you’re in a flooded area or reside in one needing water such as in California wildfire territories, or the drought-riddled southeast.
With Mercury 22Gem03 hanging around with Bush’s natal Uranus/North Node conj (radical political groups and associations) we have:
Uranus/NN = Mercury: quick comprehension; a speedy assessment of every situation; united in thoughts with others; sharing excited thoughts and plans with others; impetuousness.
Impetuous George! Incurious George. Actually he’s curious about his next Main Chance (use French pronunciation, if you please.)
Bush’s natal Sun is conj Us n Sun, as you know, and the Sun in a national chart is ‘the leader’ so we’re synchronicitously stuck with him and with our own culpabilities in all that’s happened in the last several years as the People’s Mojo has been seriously diverted and undermined by recent social experiments.
Yet I hope we find it again and take back what was set up to be a shared government with checks and balances against coup from monarchical dictatorship…that’s what must be jettisoned.
Well, the Jupiter opposite US Sun is the only applying aspect to SR Sun 2008, so I’ll close for now feeling that this post is incomplete as usual, but as I mentioned you’ll find plenty of other interpretations of America’s Solar Return 2008 (links in sidebar…choose one!)
And now I’ll leave you with the steamy Sun Can/Moon Leo blend’s Images for Integration, uniting conscious mind with the unconscious:
“A child ventures forth from her family to seek her greatness…After serving a sumptuous five-course dinner, the hostess leaves the washing up to her guests while she serenades them on the piano with Moonlight Sonata. ‘ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign,’ Chas & Suzi Harvey.)
This blend is shared natally by writer Richard D. Bach who penned:
“It was morning, and the new sun sparkled across the ripples of a gentle sea.”
Sounds lovely for a ‘new sun’ of a Solar Return!
