Seriously w.t.f America? Pluto got into Capricorn in 2008 and the Lehmann Brothers went bust, the ostensible beginning of all this. Pluto – the planet of transformation – in Capricorn – the sign of the ‘system’, the economy and (arguably) the patriarchy was ALWAYS going to be a blast. It was always going to involve a slow, interminable but inevitable evolution of the global financial system. The advent of Uranus into Aries (mid 2010) squaring Pluto (the Zap Zone) was always going to catalyze the process.
Books like Extreme Money, sites such as Zero Hedge and docos like Inside Job make it perfectly clear that nothing got seriously altered after the Global Financial Fuqery began. Bankers got bailed out by the tax payer and then went onto receive gargantuan bonus payments. The profits are privatized, the losses are socialized. Anyone who has ever had a Pluto transit knows that when change comes a knocking at the door, you don’t just pretend to take some action or make vague noises about looking into schizz. Massive determined action to evolve is basically all that works and kicking the can down the road during a Pluto-Uranus transit is a ridiculous idea.
If any of us charged around living insanely beyond our means, forever extending our credit limit and refusing to address the fundamentals, there would come a day of serious schizz. In general, the Pluto in Scorpio generation think all politicians are in on a gigantic racket and who can blame them? In general, the Pluto in Leo generation seem to think this is cyclical and that everything is okay so long as they can access cheap debt and the economy is in ‘growth.’ But it’s like the kind of growth you get on steroids, pesticides or hormones, non-sustainable, toxic and it can damage the organism. And so-called unconventional fiscal policy has been in effect for years now. Nobody is precisely certain of how it will play out.
Clearly, i am not an economist nor a financial commenter but astrologically, i am not at all surprised at the threatened default and shutdown scenario. Uranus square Pluto is exact for the fourth time (of seven) this Oct-Nov and this schizz is about to get real.
Without becoming completely cynical about government, it is probably a good idea to expect less from them, even as they demand more from us. I’ve been a Zap Zone prepper in the Horoscopes for a while now; we need to be alert, fluid and ready to instigate our own Awesome. Easier to say/be for already self-employed peeps as opposed to those who have given their service to the community/society and now have their savings/pensions at risk, i get that.
The Shutdown, America, Global Financial Fuqery, Pluto in Capricorn, the Zap Zone – Thoughts?
