Just jumping in here with a quick post on what’s happening in Egypt. it’s HUGE. It might be the most important event of this young century and maybe beyond. Over the course of the next few paragraphs, I’ll to communicate how important it is and how astrological, this might be the permanent shift for Egypt.
First off, this is nearly unprecedented as to what’s just happened. The Morsi government was supposedly voted in by a majority but those results were suspect however, they weren’t quits as suspect as the Morsi regime itself, which quickly installed MB personnel throughout all key offices, including the police. Older members of the Cairo police force were using old, second rate weapons while the new hires of the MB were given new, modern, firearms.
Unemployment was at an all time high and the strongest underground economies were drugs and homemade weapons.
The people had had enough. But more importantly, they had had enough of intervention from the USA, G8 and NATO deciding what type of government would chosen for them. Obama came out yesterday in support of the Morsi regime and this can only be viewed as a major bole for the Obama administrations foreign policy. The World Bank and IMF proxy in the form of the MB couldn’t stand in the face people who want to self-govern.
From a geopolitical standpoint, Egypt is huge. It controls the Suez Canal which controls the flow of oil and gas from Saudi Arabia. Think this isn’t a big deal? It’s also the country that’s a stone’s throw from Israel. Don’t think that there aren’t some concerned parties here.
Looking back into the history of Egypt, we can see how Saturn is and has been at play since 1805, when Egypt formed it’s first government of sorts under the ironclad rule of Muhammad Ali. Ali wasn’t Egyptian, or Ottoman, or Arabic. He was Albanian. Egypt’s first modern ruler was Albanian.
He was the son of a tobacco and shipping merchant. He was so good and skilled at planning and fighting that he not only routed Napoleon for the Ottoman Empire from Egypt, once he was in power, he also kicked The House of Saud’s ass all over the Arabic peninsula. In fact, Muhammad and his sons were so smart and powerful that they took Crete and Syria and were on their way to conquering the whole of the Ottoman empire in what is now Turkey. If it wasn’t for Russia and Europe intervening, Ali and his forces would have dominated a region and posed a serious threat to the royal families of Europe.
One of the things that Ali did was nationalize everything in Egypt. He taxed farmers and if thy couldn’t pay, he’d take their lands.
He made all the merchants sell their goods to the state, who in turn then sold them to others, carving out a profitable niche as a middle man. He took that money and built himself an army and a navy–a formidable one that conquered the fierce warriors of the Sudan and then conscripted them to fight as his foot soldiers. He was one, badass dude that nearly turned all of Europe on it’s ear.
As I mentioned, he reign started on the 9th of July in 1805 when Saturn was at 9 degrees Libra.
The next major shift in the governance of Egypt took place on the 28th of February, 1922, when the UK withdrew its formal claim on the country. Where was Saturn? In Libra, at 6 degrees.
Fast forward to June 18th, 1953, when the Egyptians declare the republic, where was Saturn? At 20 degrees Libra. Sensing a theme here?
Let’s go back two years ago when they last went through this on January 25th, 2011. Where was Saturn? Bingo! Libra, this time 17 degrees and in the shadow of Saturn Retrograde, with Saturn stationary. Not a great time for a revolution.
So that’s four regime changes and significant shifts and four incarnations of Saturn in Libra. Obviously, they need to work something out when it comes to balance, equality and finding the middle path between leadership and the will of the people. Libra is a cardinal sign, so this is going to get worked out again and again until it’s settled. And now with Saturn in Scorpio, there’s a break in the cycle. From cardinal to fixed, this is a massive change and even with Mercury and Saturn retrograde, which pose their own challenges for the future, I see these aspects as a looking back to Egypt’s ancient past, a return to the foundational roots of the planet itself. Because it all started in Egypt 5,000 years ago. It’s the cradle of civilization and from there it moved to Greece, Rome, then Western Europe, then the USA and the 13 colonies, to western expansion, to California and the rise technodominance, multiculturalism, film, TV and music. The zenith of the west.
Then the wave moves across the Pacific to Japan and their financial dominance in the 1980′s. Then to China in the 2000′s. China has crested. Their peak is over and that wave is moving, perhaps it crashing on Tahrir Square as we speak, coming full circle, from the days of pharaohs and hyper-dimensional physics, magic, esoteric arts, star gates and celestial alignments, to collective mind theater powered by smart phones and virtual networks carrying the vision of the future in 140 characters and less. The wave of the grand trine is crashing upon the shores of time and you’re here to witness it.
