And "leaping" they are, leaping all over the place. Assange and Wikileaks, to arrest or not to arrest, bail or no bail ( turns out bail) John Boehner, who seems to have perpetual PMS is straining to get to January 1st and lead the GOP House to what they see as their Promise Land. The State Department is in turmoil because Richard Holbrooke, the most senior and best diplomat they have decided to seek a more peaceful path; and the White House insisted his dying words were actually a joke when he asked that the "war in Afghanistan be stopped." Ireland, England, France, Germany, Spain and Greece are in a beginning state of revolution over their government's Austerity Plans. The protest groups in London started yelling "off with their heads" at the Prince and Duchess of Wales, that's not a epitaph royalty would take lightly in Europe, no matter how long it's been since "off with their heads" had real meaning. And then there is Obama trying to dance and badly between the Democratic Party and the GOP, Wall Street and Main Street seemingly confused as to who and where he is. The Senate is a mess and completely inbred to the point of idiotic drooling that means nothing, gets nothing done and can't find their direction out of a paper bag. Then of course there are the usual "lords," always depicted in cartoons as puffed up buffoons (there is a reason for that.) Those would be the bankers, Corporate CEO's and Wall Street in general.
I am telling you there are too many drugs in the water. The whole thing is exhausting waiting for the other shoe to fall. No one is happy over the mess we are in and no one knows why (except maybe Julian Assange and the Illuminati or maybe the innocuous but curious milk man always coming in his odd little truck. No, can't be him they gave up those odd little trucks in the 50's, but who knows the US has our neighbors spying on us anyway so anyone of us might know what's going on here.
NN (2 Capricorn) Mercury (3) Pluto (4) and Mars (5) all kind of bunched up there in Capricorn and opposing the US Venus and Jupiter and squaring the US Mid-heaven, oh what a cozy and warm grouping. Kind of like raising your children, they are all trying to kill each other and be the only child. It's almost as if these governments are deliberately setting off the protests, if not what did they think would happen?
In these first stages of Pluto in Capricorn it would seem as if the structures built over the last two hundred plus years are being torn down, but the world isn't the US and it would seem all structures are being torn down worldwide, not just here, unless in the last two hundred years the US has had a great deal to do with forming the basis of those countries then it would make sense that they were coming down at the same time. Financially the US has had a great deal to do with their financial system as bankers poured money out from here to around the world. They were able to do that because of the Balfour Agreement signed by England in the early 1900's. Pluto hasn't even started digging deep into the bowels of this country. Mercury starts its journey back over Pluto in a forward motion the end of December making the first of January perfect for Julian Assange dumping all his banking info into the internet, the attempts to stop him will be made.
The US is also in a Saturn Return making it difficult for the government, particularly since it's squaring the US Sun. Our need for daddy to fix it all will be raging this year as Saturn goes back and forth over its place three times and whomever we the people identify as "daddy" we won't like. Right now that's Obama. Think back to what was happening to you and to this country thirty years ago. Did you have any struggles? Any good luck? Any changes to your life? Ronald Reagan became President and a new era was born, whether we saw it or not. Things went well for the GOP then as they easily stepped into the role of the "daddy rule" and with 20 Mule Team Borax Reagan the GOP managed to turn this behemoth of a country toward the crazy far right. A Saturn Return also indicates a time of needing to grow up and that's what is happening to all of us, also the opportunities to grow up. The "new" GOP is basically 30 years old and the far right they tried so hard to bring to pass has now been born and will become very demanding of 'daddy" and like all new born they don't have a clue what they can and cannot do. What else was happening during that period of time? The Berlin Wall came down that separated country from country; East and West Germany, and the US sank deeper and deeper into Reagan's mind as he slipped away from reality. The GOP followed him. I expect that was when the first outline or some version of the Patriot Act was put together in their inner sanctum, awaiting the day when someone like Ashcroft could trot it out.
ATM's, Credit Cards, bank fees began to proliferate the financial markets and the American People began to race toward easy credit loans, they grew and grew until we are facing a huge crisis with credit cards and trying to desperately to get out from under them. The Savings and Loan crisis, much like the mortgage crisis hit the country, it was 'wait for it' full of fraud and corruption and involved housing. People lost their homes and their equity and savings, young and old alike. I believe that was guided by Neil Bush, at least he was one of them, and brother George was guiding this housing crisis, people have lost their homes, their equity and their savings, young and old alike. That's what happened to a country 30 years ago, what happened to you? Think about it. For me, I had a baby, a heart attack, extensive surgery and my mother had stage 4 Breast Cancer (she survived for another 20 years) and came to live with me while taking Chemo. I went into a huge depression and one night I sat up all night and forced myself out of it, it was a huge turning point in my life. Think about your experiences because you have the opportunity to hit a turning point. So does the GOP, will they? If not they will watch what they tried to build the last 30 years, crumble.
Let us know what 30 years ago brought to you because we can start going up. Wait until we get to the 5 days of Christmas and the 5 golden rings.
