Everyone gets out alive.
“We are at the parting of the ways. We have, not one or two or three, but many, established and formidable monopolies in the United States. We have, not one or two, but many, fields of endeavor into which it is difficult, if not impossible, for the independent man to enter. We have restricted credit, we have restricted opportunity, we have controlled development, and we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world — no longer a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” — Woodrow Wilson
Alas boys and girls, all good things must come to an end and so it is with the final episode of “The 1913” series, which has seen us look a the charts of Woodrow Wilson, Jacob Schiff, John D. Rockefeller, Meyer Amschel Rothschild, Albert Pike, Theodore Herzl, Arthur Koestler and others who played a role in launching The Federal Reserve, Federal Taxation, the starting of WWI, the entry of The US into WWI. the formation of Zionism, The Balfour Agreement, The Nation State of Israel and the attendant, alternative ethnography. We looked at aspects for each of the main players to see if we could find any through lines and based what I determined, wherever there was a heavy concentration of trans-personal planets and or house affiliation, 9-12, there was a tendency to be less concerned about the individual and more motivated by the advancement of hierarchies, groups, organizations, affiliations, societies and even cabals. Under the rubric of progressive utopianism, socialism, new ageism, global governance, etc, the impact of transpersonal planets and aspects cannot be underestimated. Are these aspects then considered maelific? Not necessarily as astrology, stars, angles and charts are just one way of looking at people, patterns, typology, archetypes and personal expression and yet, they can serve as signifiers of potential and intent.
We are currently in a Pluto phase where the forces of transformation are taking hold of institutions that are Capricornian at their very core; banking, business, and government. While Pluto forced us to deal with religious extremism to a certain extent while it was in Sag, stirring up and uncovering layers of belief and dis-belief, many of it’s manifestations took place in the realm of the ideological. Now, Pluto enters into the very “real” arena of our lives–our ability to have a pipeline to livelihood and abundance.
This morning, it was announced that Microsoft is laying off 5,000 people. Last week, Circuit City announced that it was closing over 500 stores and as the young year progresses, we will hear more and stories about closures and layoffs. Here in California, the state that has one of the largest incomes in the world, we are going bankrupt. The domino effect is in full effect. Out of the economic rubble and disorder, solutions will be proffered and these solutions are not the result of some nimble brain storming, though it might appear that way, they have been moving along on a conveyor since 1913 and beyond, at a measured, yet calculated pace.
Transpersonal vs. Personal. The good of the many vs the will of the individual. These will be the concordant themes of the days, weeks and months ahead. But are we doomed to a pre-ordained set of outcomes that for all intents and purposes appear to be socially engineered, gamed if you will? My answer is “no.”
Just recently, we were witness to the miraculous landing of a US Air jet in The Hudson River, where everyone made it out alive, due to the calm, clear and informed choices of the pilot, Chelsey Sullenberger to avert the disaster. For me, this is a profound meta-event that needs to be recognized, an event that is so imbued with meaning that I would almost be derelict if I did not ponder it’s relevance.
First off, it’s pretty straightforward; US AIR. The plane symbolic of the country US (A) IR (I Are) is “we.” In essence, we are going down, it’s going to be a disaster and yet it isn’t. It was a miracle performed by a conscious and alert pilot. That plane is US or us. The pilot is you–the “I Are.”
One of the little known subtexts to this story was that many of the passengers were bank employees, mostly from B of A as they were heading to Charlotte and in fact, one of them was even a fraud inspector. There were stories of fires breaking out on the plane before impact and I am more than just a little wary of the birds into engine tale. But again, if the plane is filled with bank employees, from a symbolic level (and we are going through a banking crisis) and the plane they are on is about to crash, but because of the act of one man, the disaster is diverted. Rife with metaphors, isn’t it?
Ironically, Sullenberger’s chart is chocked full of trans-peronal planetary influence. His Sun is in Aquarius at two degrees. On January 15, 2009, the day of the crash, Jupiter was in an exact conjunction with his Sun! Talk about timely aspecting and the power of Aquarius! Sullenberger also seems to have quite a sympathetic relationship with water, with his Moon in Cancer, Mars in Pisces, Jupiter In Pisces and Uranus in Cancer, Uranus and Jupiter are in a strong trine in those two water signs, which favors quick thinking and processing information rapidly and, it probably helps as the crisis took place over water, a conduit of miraculous possibility. Now here is where it gets good. Sully’s Uranus in Cancer at six degrees, is just one degree off of The US Jupiter in Cancer at five degrees. Here we have a magical confluence, a synchronistic mesh that makes one ponder the elements of strange attraction in action, the wiring of destiny itself.
I think that this is a major metaphoric and symbolic event that needs to be recognized on many, many levels. It’s also a very positive manifestation of the transpersonal in action.
As we say good bye to 1913 and say hello to 2009, the plane might be going down, but safe passage and deliverance is available to those that are conscious, fearless and calm. The power of awareness is your life preserver.
