to continue...

There is a lot of Neptunian influence in the USA chart, as mentioned before, and although I had notes about it, I left out the progressed Moon now approaching a conjunction to Neptune and square Mars just before. All of those references relate, not only to the confusion of the people (if not deception of same), but also oil, which is ruled by Neptune. [So is the sea. Neptune also rules smoke (ash over Europe) and gases and poisonous chemicals in general, such as those that occur underground in mines.]

Our country depends on goods trucked all over the country. In the last depression, that was not the case. But now, with the prospect of oil going up steeply in price, the cost of food will also inevitably rise. This has happened in the past in Russia when fuel was so expensive, food rotted in the field before it could be shipped, and people starved in great numbers.

As history unfolds, it does repeat because the cycles that synchronize with events also repeat. We can learn from history, but we also have to take into account what has changed from one era of history to another. In this case, it is difficult because we are not being told the whole truth about much of anything. Just this morning (May 19, 2010) there was a Katie Couric video of a news crew being turned away from the beaches of Louisiana, under the orders of BP—i.e. the coast guard was following BP’s orders!!—and it was under the threat of arrest! Aerial photos revealed a very black beach for miles.

But on the other hand…
Even with all that going on, and knowing what enormous problems the whole globe faces, there is another way of looking at this. Robert Blaschke has written that the progressed Sun in the USA chart now trine the natal Jupiter is what is holding the country together. That may be so, but solar arc Uranus is also trine the USA’s MC, and we are awakening to what is really going on. There is a site, for instance, called for anonymous posting of whistle-blowing types of reports. The internet is making it harder and harder to hide anything.

Whenever we have these very difficult configurations, they are actually a Godsend. Otherwise, the misbehaviors of humanity would go on to unimaginable results. Look at the major planetary players this way: (not that I’m telling you what to do… just a suggestion…) The Uranus-Saturn opposition is a struggle between the old and the new. When old ways (Saturn) are no longer working (oil has become destructive and too expensive), then through “shock” (Uranus) we “wake up” (Uranus) and “invent” (Uranus) new ways of doing things. The opposition just shows that the time has come.

Pluto square Uranus (major player over the next two to three years—not quite there yet) are always harbingers of major dismantling of existing structures. When we’ve had great innovation and change, they have been active. The conjunction of the two in the mid-sixties was the main reflection of the riots about equality of race and protest against the Vietnam War. We are now at the first 90 degree angle since that conjunction. This shows impatience on a massive scale and an “I am not going to take it anymore” attitude. Assassinations often result in this attitude, by the way. But, before we can have change, we have to break down the stubborn, resistant structure that is already there. The square shows that it will be done with impatience and force, but it will effect change in the end, and that is the important thing.

A Course in Miracles teaches that when we don’t like something, we can stop and say to ourselves, “I can look at this a different way.” When we do that, our energy shifts, and we begin to attract a different version of the drama in front of us. Yesterday I was depressed, but when I reflected on the outcome that all this will bring, IF we use the energies wisely, I felt a lot more hopeful.

The Major BP Oil Spill

The news reports say that the infamous oil spill, that is now a major disaster, started with an explosion at 11:00 pm EST (note the “standard” time designation) on April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico. Co-ordinates given were exact, but rounded off, they are 29N and 89W. It is highly unlikely that the time is exact so it doesn’t hurt to round off the co-ordinates. I’m sure this chart is pretty close, though.

Amazingly, the chart for this event has the current Saturn-Uranus opposition aligning with the MC-IC axis. In fact, if the event happened about 2 to 8 minutes earlier, they would have been aligning exactly. Uranus was at 28:29 Pisces, which rules oil, and Saturn occupies 29:06 Virgo. Saturn rules “safety” and in Virgo, attention to detail. We may find, in general, for the past couple years, that the “devil was in the details” regarding safety for many, many events! Like the mining disaster that was also in April.

Pluto, although trine the Sun, is within range of a square to both ends of this opposition, and that suggests that this is a much, much more literally “in depth” event that it appears at first. For one thing, the MC of this chart is within a degree of the Sibly USA chart, and as Saturn and Uranus enter Libra and Aries, aligning with this angle over the next few months, we will see just how much damage has been done.

The nodes in this chart are exactly square the USA Saturn with only a five minute orb. I believe the nodes point to karmic lessons when they contact Saturn. Saturn, in turn, rules the Sibly chart’s second house and is posited in the tenth sector. Tenth is business, corporations, leadership, et al. Second house, as we all know, is money and values. Clearly, this is a lesson about those things. Not only that, but Pluto is in the second of the USA chart, and it has just experienced a conjunction of the progressed nodes, separating by less than a degree. Pluto is where we look for power, control, crime, even oil, if you consider that it is the “power” that is sought—not to mention it being the ruler of the “underground.” Transiting Pluto at 5:22 Capricorn is opposing the USA Jupiter within less than a degree, as well. Jupiter is too much, excess, expansion, and it is certainly true of the oil that is being spilled all over the Gulf, which will probably be taken by currents much farther away than that.

Neptune has been hovering over the USA Moon for quite awhile and will still retrograde (starting May 31st) back to an exact conjunction on August 25th and again on January 15, 2011. Where do we start to define that!?? The Moon in the USA chart is not only the ordinary citizen who has been manipulated and deceived for years, it also rules the 8th which is our collective financial system— the stock market, the insurance industry, taxes, banks—and even death. I’m not saying we’re all going to die, but I do believe we are going to be heard and the “death” will be the collective financial interests of the country that will go through dissolution of the system as we have known it, and a revision process to prevent the country from taking its last gasp.

Another clue to this is the quincunx of the USA’s solar arc Neptune to the USA’s Saturn, only 12 minutes applying. Saturn is ruler of the second, and Neptune the intercepted third. The quincunx is usually a separation, a disconnection. This can mean “decisions” (third house) to “disconnect” the monetary system as we have known it. Currently, we see a move on to dismantle banks into state-run smaller institutions. Personally, I hope it extends to dismantling the Federal Reserve.

A further clue is that the progressed USA Jupiter is retrograding to a position that is now within a degree of squaring the USA Saturn—a new foundation being built. It will probably take more than three years for this to suddenly be realized—about the time that the USA progressed Sun squares the natal Uranus in roughly three years and five months.
There is much more, but I get depressed…. More later.
