Mercury retrograde can wreak havoc on contracts and travel, but would it have any impact on the environment? If the epic disaster in Louisiana is any indication then the answer is a definitive “yes.” Some are calling this Obama’s “Katrina.” The devastation to the surrounding environment is beyond epic. Of course it has and will have an impact on oil prices and the devils currency, “futures.” I suppose that if you wanted to dramatically effect the spike point of oil derivatives and people aren’t buying as much petroleum due to traveling less to jobs they no longer have, then artificially stimulating the market, which of course has never happened, would be an expedient and ruthlessly efficient action to take.
The first red flag around the event is that the BP rig that caught on fire, did so on 4/20, The cluster of events around 4/20 in this country’s history is formidable; Waco, Oklahoma City, Columbine and of course, it’s Hitler’s birthday and International Bake Day. And now we have this brutal catastrophe that is spewing 210,000 gallons- of crude a day. The black scum is now hitting Florida, threatening that state’s survival as well. The damage to the environment and economy in Louisiana is almost incalculable. The decision to set the sea of oil ablaze to “burn it off” adds a layer ritualistic elements, a titanic funeral pyre at sea. Most people think that oil is mostly comprised of carbon, hydrogenated oxygen. But on deeper inspection, there are many more elements at play including iron, silver, aluminum, boron and others. Of course, the ocean is element rich as well. What we’re witnessing is a dark, alchemical furnace being lit, an open cauldron at sea, sacrificing untold numbers of life forms, belching dark spirits into the skies. Now they’re adding chemicals to break up the oily blanket suffocating the south coast, adding more damage into the toxic spew. Figures.
There’s heavy rains and flooding in Nashville, riots in Greece, a fertilizer bomb in Times Square, Al Qaeda, White Russians, Pole Shifts, Regime Change, American Idols, Falling Economies, Rising Angst, Greasy Skies, and we’re not even at the grand cross zero point..
