My momma said things come in threes.
Signs, signifiers, omens and oddities abound this week. Where do we start? It was just last Friday that half of the Polish government went down in a soundless heap over the still barren trees of Smolensk. Witnesses observed the jet crashing to the ground in an eerie silence. There was no choking or sputtering of engines, no plumes of smoke, nor acrid scent of burning fuel, just a deadly quiet, announcing the tragic gravity of it’s rapid descent.
President, Lech Kacynzski and 59 others, including a number of members of his cabinet plummeted to their deaths, raising the spectres of Paul Wellstone, Ron Brown and Larry McDonald. Their cumulative deaths would be like the equivalent of a bomb going off at East Downing Street or Pennsylvania Avenue. Almost an entire body of governance, wiped out. Destroyed. I doubt that we will ever know the real truth about this, but we can begin to discern some things about the wreck and where Poland is as a country and perhaps begin to speculate why.
First off, my heart goes out to the Polish people. On my son’s mother’s side, there is a very strong, Polish lineage. Both of her father’s parents were first generation Poles. They became the ideal of the American immigrant success story, working hard, establishing their own trucking line in The East Coast, which they eventually sold. Their oldest son went to college and was a Vietnam war hero. They had a small lake house in Western Mass where the family would go each Summer to fish and swim. That little place is still in the family. They didn’t cut corners or try to sell anyone any toxic debt. They just worked hard and it worked for them. That apparently was Poland’s story as well as it had positioned itself to be the sixth most vital economy in Europe and in fact it was on the rise. The Poles were not burdened by the enormous debt of The Greeks, Latvians or Icelanders (much more about them). They were running a tight ship. But all was not well.
The key player in the crash might not be Kacynzski himself, but Kacynzski and his close friend and Central Banker, Slawomir Skrzypek. Skrzypek and Polish Prime Minister, Donald Tusk were at odds on a number of issues, the most pressing being Tusk’s uber-agressive timetable to get Poland in the EU and on The Euro by 2012. Skrzypek pushed back. He also wanted Poland to enter into the same financial marketplace as Germany, which has been bailing out faltering countries. Skrzypek saw some inherent advantages to money lending and offering aid. But that wasn’t all. There was also some deep conflict over what instituted profit in Poland and who got the lions share of it. All in all, we can see a serious power struggle was taking place over the soul of Poland’s economy. It’s interesting to note that Donald Tusk was not on that plane. Poland, apparently was not enamored of taking on an IMF loan, but now that Skrzypek and Lech Kacynski are out of the way, they are now ready to take on $20 billion from The IMF:
“According to the IMF’s managing director, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the IMF board is considering a one-year flexible credit line arrangement after Poland’s Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, announced that the nation was seeking a one-year precautionary arrangement under the IMF’s Flexible Credit Line for $20.5 billion. The move comes after the G20 meeting in London earlier this month, whereby the IMF’s lending resources were increased to $750 billion.”
One of this site’s savvy readers, John from Rose City pointed out that the T-Square of Pluto/Saturn/The Sun was right over Polish skies last Friday. Like celestial crosshairs, the alignment was clearly in sight/site.
Lech Kacynzski was born in Warsaw, on 6/18/49 and 2:40 AM. He was a Gemini Sun, Taurus Ascendant and Pisces Moon. His chart is marked by canyon-sized vectors of houses 6 and 12. To be quite frank, I have never seen houses that were nearly 60 degrees wide. From my perspective, I see this wide aperture as being incredibly significant. If the 12th House is the house of Spirit and the 6th House, the house of Service, then in Lech’s case, there was extreme emphasis placed in those two areas of his chart. The wide open window of the 12th is a macro-portal allowing a larger flow and influx of spiritual information and inspiration to flow into his life. The same width in the 6th made sure that he had the widest arena possible for the application of spiritual input. His 12th house begins in Pisces (Spirit) and ends in Taurus (Body). His 6th begins in Virgo (Service) and ends in Scorpio (Pysche). Taurus rules money and resources. Scorpio rules the sagacious use of resources, especially those that are from others. Kacynzski was astrologically wired to receive inspiration and ground it into resources and matter, have a sense of service and use those resources wisely. His chart clearly demonstrates that he had some serious wherewithal to manage The Polish economy in service of it’s own sovereignty.
His Uranus in Cancer, House 2, is at 2 degrees. Transiting Pluto, going retrograde was in House 8, a house shared by Capricorn AND Sag. Does retrograde Pluto, squaring transiting Saturn his House 4, the house of his home begin to illustrate the tragic dynamic in play? Transiting Saturn in his fourth is clearly indicative of an aspect that was geared up and ready to work towards equality in his home. Saturn in Libra is all about equanimity and fair play. Mature win/wins for all around. It was his focus obviously on the economic front. Aries, the God of War, had just broached House 12, hidden and occluded forces at work. So the question becomes, did the stars kill Lech Kacynzski and the rest of his entourage? Did they foretell of it’s impending future? Or do other forces use astrology as kind of a astrochronmeter, a sextant to plot out activities during eventful movements of the stars. Jordan Maxwell would call this, “Astrotheology.” In any case, the course of Poland and perhaps the world’s future has radically changed as a result.
Where There’s Smoke, there’s likely Fire
While Poland was trying to assert it’s economic independence, Iceland has been busy trying to recover theirs. Burdened by debt, mostly thanks to President, Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, and his wife, Dorrit Mousiaff, encouraging Icelanders to invest in the controversial Icesave program, which for all intents and purposes was another Ponzi scheme. The Icelanders a mostly homogeneous bunch, have clearly decided that they did not want to pay back the people that essentially ripped them of in the first place. While we here in the United States have our representatives gladly vote to compensate thieves, the Icelanders have had the gall to say, “no.” That’s bad form and sets an even worse precedent. So have the gods of money lending taken out their wrath on Iceland? Is the nearly active volcano, which is grounding flights throughout Europe, swirling with toxic Fluoride gasses an act of god from the underworld? Is this a natural disaster? Or, in the Sci-fi world of HAARPtronics, did those geothermal tubes get a little tectonic snuggy? Are the events in Poland and Iceland related? Is this sign from “The Lord Of Lucre” that you don’t mess with “the natural forces of the market place?”
Aries of course and Pluto come fully into play here. The Gods of The Underworld and Fire.
There is a strange little boy I know, with even stranger parents. For the past two years, we have helped celebrate this boy’s birthday in April, even though he was actually born in January. I couldn’t figure it out. Then it occurred to me that April was when he was CONCEIVED. We have been celebrating his conception for the past two years. Not only does this weird me out just slightly, but it illustrated the connection between Aries and Capricorn, the symbiotic relationship between the ram and the goat. This is telling, especially in the light of Uranus’ transmigration from fish to ram, which ironically also mirrors similar transition from sea-goat, to terrestrial. The esoteric mystery of Aries and Capricorn is about to be unveiled. I think it’s noteworthy to see what’s taking place now, especially during The Aries New Moon and what manifests in December/January besides that strange little kids other birthday.
Missing Presidents And Random Fireballs
The other big news this week, was Barack Obama’s missing time (a couple of hours) and the spectacular fireball that lit up the Midwestern skies. On saturday morning, Obama broke with White House protocol and went AWOL. Apparently Secret Service was also not involved. He claimed that he was at his daughter’s soccer game. I guess there aren’t any outlets there for a teleprompter. Just kidding. My friend, Dennis Whitney of Strange Planet thinks Obama had an Eisenhower moment, referring to the time that Eisenhower supposedly went to the dentist but met with a group of ET’s at Edwards AFB (formerly Muroc), with spiritualist, Gerald Light. He thinks that Obama might have had a similar encounter. Then there was the mysterious fireball/meteor/downed craft who the hell knows what that streaked across the sky. Was Obama informed that something like this might happen? Are we about to witness a space war? Real? Contrived?
So let’s look back on the week. We have:
• Mysteriously downed Polish aircraft.
• Iceland about to blow it’s lid.
• Obama vanishing into space.
• Massive fireball lightning.
Can’t wait to see what next week brings. For those of you that listen to the radio side, I am going to go live, six days a week. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, I will be on with “The Farisee Hour.” Wednesdays will still be the “Navigating The Astrological Matrix”, and Sunday is still, “Free Association Radio.” Stay tuned.
Great Balls Of Fire!
