“…What’s going on here? The answer, surely, is that Wall Street’s Masters of the Universe realize, deep down, how morally indefensible their position is. They’re not John Galt; they’re not even Steve Jobs. They’re people who got rich by peddling complex financial schemes that, far from delivering clear benefits to the American people, helped push us into a crisis whose aftereffects continue to blight the lives of tens of millions of their fellow citizens.
Yet they have paid no price. Their institutions were bailed out by taxpayers, with few strings attached. They continue to benefit from explicit and implicit federal guarantees — basically, they’re still in a game of heads they win, tails taxpayers lose. And they benefit from tax loopholes that in many cases have people with multimillion-dollar incomes paying lower rates than middle-class families.
This special treatment can’t bear close scrutiny — and therefore, as they see it, there must be no close scrutiny…”
So, the Occupy Wall Street chart. I would LOVE to say it’s something real fancy going on and i am sure someone out there can. Like a sensitive Eclipse hotpoint resonating back to the birth of Rockefeller or something BUT it’s just the good old Zap Zone: rebellious Uranus in Aries squaring Pluto in establishment Capricorn.
I remember reading an interview with the surrealist Scorpio writer J.G. Ballard a few years ago, in which he talked about the middle class rising up and rioting in rage at having their hard-earned $$$ funnelled into corporations even as their taxes purchased less and less government benefits. And i thought Ballard was going a bit barmy. It seemed a bit anarcha-goo-goo for someone so urbane, grounded and creative. But…well.
So here is the chart of September 17, in New York, for when Occupy Wall Street began. I threw in an asteroid (Hidalgo= rebellion, some say) or two (okay, Persephone).
And just to be a total onanist, some Uranian “hypothetical” planets: Hades & Vulcan.
But really, the key thing of this is Uranus square Pluto, it’s major and it’s not even exact yet. That starts in mid-2012. Though I’d also be keeping a real close eye on December 10/11 – Uranus Direct and a Lunar Eclipse.
Remember; ultimately i think all this is going to work out well. Please see previous articles in the newly created Astro-Global Financial Fuqery category for reassurance.
