I raised 4 children basically alone, two girls and two boys and had the usual highs and lows that most parents experience. Days when I wanted to shout to the world with pride "that's my child," and days I wanted to deny (but couldn't) those kids had any relationship to me. I did however have two other children that I never saw their face or even heard them coming until my other four were standing in front of me; I did nevertheless know their names. They were called "I don't know and it wasn't me." Today all four of my kids are grown and doing pretty well, so are the other two, in fact "I don't know and it wasn't me" are in Washington as we speak, they are rich and powerful people today. They have been working and rising to the top of banks, insurance companies, politicians, big business. They are right now sitting in front of Congressional hearings, repeating those oft used names of "I don't know and it wasn't me," a close third would be "it's not my fault," even if they are holding the smoking gun in their hands. BP, Halliburton, and Transocean seemingly had nothing whatever to do with the Gulf massive oil spill; they don't know what happened. It wasn't them, they don't know what happened, and it wasn't their fault. Believe me, before all this is over they will try (and might succeed) in placing the cost on the taxpayers shoulders, after all the Banks and Insurance companies have been able to do this with the help of our "it wasn't us" government.
As long as Neptune is in its final run of Aquarius there will be plenty of stories about oil and water around the world. If Neptune is placed prominently in your charts you will also have to look out for obfuscation, oil and water around you, that can cover everything from higher oil and gas prices to oil spills, from heavy rains to floods, from confusion to out and out lies, so keep a look out. “I don’t know and it wasn’t me” has already provided quite a lot of obfuscation.
Uranus moving into Aries will create some rapid and sometimes shocking changes, hopefully the Saturn opposition to Uranus in late July will mitigate or restrict some of the expected explosions around the world. We haven’t always had explosions with Saturn and Uranus connections but we have always had unexpected events leading to greater opportunities for growth and change. Some group or individuals will be shocked but will it be conservatives or liberals, rich or poor, thieves or honesty? Hard to tell but it will be chaos worldwide. David Cameron, the new Prime Minister of the UK and a conservative has already thrown his lot with the Liberal Democrats, those two parties are about as opposite in ideology as a country can get, this will be very interesting to watch. Mr. Cameron was born Oct. 9, 1966 in London (NBT take 12:00 noon) His Venus at 7 Libra will be sure to cause him some problems in the year 2010, he also has Neptune in exact opposition to his Mars in Leo; transiting Mercury is getting ready to go direct and in a square to Mr. Cameron’s Jupiter and Mercury, his promises today are over reaching and he will need to pull back or the other option is he won’t come close to telling the truth or being able to complete what he has promised. England is struggling like the US and David has his work cut out that’s for sure and Nick Clegg the leader of the Liberal Democrats whose star is beginning to rise will be a formidable opposition party to Prime Minister Cameron, who describes himself as a “compassionate conservative.” Does that title ring any bells?
There are for sure positives and negatives intensifying for the US and the world, the real questions will be no whether there is disaster looming ahead for people and countries, there is disaster looming as it does every year, every decade and every century. The question will be whom will it benefit, the elites or the populace or will we learn that we are all one people and we impact each other. Maybe 2012 will show us the answers.
