Mayan Calendar (2012) and Saturn in Scorpio 1

I’ll probably have a number of posts to write about this, but I’d like to write a short one now. Saturn is in Virgo and Pluto is in Capricorn. Both are malefics, both are trine, and Pluto is in Saturn’s home. What does this mean? I think that the answer to that is unfolding currently.

“2012” seems to divide people into two camps: those who have heard about it and are terrified, and those who either haven’t heard of it or don’t care. I’m in a third: I think it is a curiosity, but I haven’t put much stock into it.

I’d like to point out a few interesting astrological issues, though. (1) Saturn will move into Scorpio, which is MUCH tougher than Virgo; and (2) Saturn and Pluto will be in mutual reception.

I could stop there; those two would be enough by themselves. But those born in the mid 1980s will be entering or about to enter their Saturn returns. A number of astrologers call this generation the “Chernobyl” or “Columbine” generation. The Challenger Space Shuttle disaster happened in 1986. Some have watched this generation cautiously, and I note that they begin their Saturn returns at that time.

All of this is far away, but I would offer that the current events will set the stage for those events, four years away. This election is profound, but the following one will be even more profound.

Scorpio rules (1) things underground; (2) poisons in general; and (3) especially liquids that are poisonous. Easily deduced from #1, #2, and #3, Scorpio rules crude oil generally, with Neptune & Pisces controlling the pipes. Saturn is cardinal earth, it tends to make things shrink, and it also tends to “dry up” things.

So, four years in advance, I offer this. The current “difficulties” are preparing us for what is ahead, four years from now. We are NOT having a “Great Depression,” yet, but if we do not make major changes to conserve and manage resources better, we might encounter such problems by 2012. The current “financial woes” are a wake up call.

Scorpio 2008 and Aquarius 2009

Without naming any aspects, I’d like to point out that what happens from “about” October 22nd to November 21st of 2008 will be revisited from a different vantage point in late January through mid Februrary of 2009.  The time now is tough.  The Fall “Quarter Day” of Samhain, or Hallow’e’en (Hallowed Evening) approaches, and it is associated with death and the end of the prosperity of the summer.

This same quarter day also plants the seeds that will blossom next spring with the advent of Aries.  But, before that, Aquarius will visit.  And, in 2009 that means issues of Chiron (attempting to heal the wound through teaching and learning) and Neptune (illness and delusion, but also beauty and relief) will be visited.

By Februrary, we will recognize that changes are needed, and those with eyes to see and ears to hear will have to know that some offerings in February are NOT the right path.  The stricture of the coming winter may lead to a sense of desperation that is unnecessary and perhaps dangerous.  The key will be to ferret out the problem, learn from it, begin the healing process, and move forward.  But, any sense of truly moving forward is unlikely until the vernal equinox (first day of spring) when the Sun will sqaure Pluto and inspire important new changes.

Financial Markets and Saturn and Chiron and Pluto 2008

After a bit of thought, I’ve decided that I’m glad that not so many people read this blog.  If you read “2008 June 26 Uranus Retrograde Chart set in DFW” then you know that I predicted a shakeup in September.  If you are dialed into this at all, I’d hope you would re-read the above article in great detail.  What I said, and continue to predict, is that this shakeup simply isn’t over.  The activity in September / early October is just a punctuation mark on the way to the rest of the story.  Saturn Inconjuncts Chiron on October 8th.  Since Saturn has a 28 year orbit and Chiron a 56 year orbit, this doesn’t happen much.  It happens even less than the Jupiter / Saturn dances that classically characterize financial “changes.”

Of course an activating aspect is needed.  (Read my other writings about activating events (typically new or full moons).)  Monday is Sun Square Jupiter, a time of often overly ambitious overspending.  The Venus / Saturn / Chiron aspects of Tuesday and Wednesday October 7th and 8th will produce MORE revelations about the “structural soundness” of the world economy as well as the U.S. Economy.  Don’t be surprised to receive interesting “news” on these days, either.  By the Full Moon of October 14th, some of these truths will be unavoidable.  Deceit will continue, but the liars and cheats will find it more difficult to perpetrate the fraud.  So to speak, “Main Street” has had enough.

The key thing to remember, here, is that a huge unbridled bailout (Jupiter) is NOT the answer here.  The answer requires intense work on the “fundamentals” of the economy and finance system.  The time has arrived for a profound belt-tightening.  I’ll say a little more about October, but the real key will be found “about” the time of Thanksgiving Day.  Maybe the Wednesday before Thanksgiving will be the turning point, or maybe it will be Thanksgiving itself.

That said, other rough spots in October: Refuse to succumb to any temptation to be impetuous on October 14th.  This is a “feel good” full moon day that will tempt many to act rashly.  Don’t get sucked into THAT trap.

October 15th Mercury “goes direct” and this means on the 15th or following few days something “overdue” will be handled.  The classic example for some of you is the arrival of an overdue check.

The Grand Trine of Thursday October 23rd will make that a very powerful MORNING (afternoon for Brits) to get things done.  Energies “flip” in afternoon and this is a time to rest and maybe reconsider.

Chiron goes direct on October 25th.  On or about that time we’ll get a crucial message about some kind of healing.  This will definitely affect the financial markets, but also anyone with health problems.  Frankly, I’m a bit worried about Social Security and Medicare.

By Monday the 27th, the new issue of “healing” causes tempers to flare in a profound way.  Expect a battle royale.  “Things” could be very nasty.

The Scorpionic New Moon of the 28th is difficult to interpret.  The conflict of Monday can be read three ways: (1) it is dead & gone; (2) it has been swept under the rug and is festering; or (3) the firefight of Monday has gone totally covert.  Guns are traded for poisons.

The dance of Mercury and Neptune on Wednesday indicate confusion and overextended idealism at best.  At worst, they are about significant deception in a time when honesty is desperately needed.

The firefights of Thursday and Friday could be avoided if you find a safe athletic activity to participate in.  But, covert operations may be at risk for exposure on these days.

This might be one really scary Halloween.

Neptune turns direct Saturday and Sunday.  A planet of “happiness” often in the form of delusion or deceit, Neptune is also excellent at exposing secrets.  This will particularly apply to those born in the late 1950’s and 1960’s.  This is a good time to turn off the cell phone and hide with a good book or movie.  Harry Potter would work well.

Tuesday, November 4th is election day.  This one reminds me of the one in 2000 that was ENTIRELY in a moon void of course.  (“nothing will come of this” or perverse outcomes)  This one has Mars Square Neptune (Bill Clinton may be prominent this day for some unexplainable reason); Saturn in Opposition to Uranus (very, very financial); and (like 2000) the ENTIRE election is Moon v/c.

I predict an outcome similar to 2000, except dramatically more important.  Frankly, this is going to be a terrible mess.  And, in hindsight, we’ll all know that the outcome was crucial.  (Why?  because of the outer planet stuff in the prior paragraph, especially Saturn Opposite Uranus, a once every fourteen years event.)

I’m not sure what was going on politically about 14 to 15 years ago, but it holds important answers for this election.  Even more so is whatever happened 28 to 30 years ago.  To understand what will happen here, look to the election of 1976 and what happened then consequent to the times of the “Arab Oil Embargo.”

November has different events, but the kicker will be when Pluto re-enters Capricorn on Wednesday the 26th of November.  This is the day before Thanksgiving.  Pluto is highly “contractile” and so is Capricorn.  Money will be tight, far tighter than it is at the time I write this (Oct 4th).  This kind of “feeling” will continue through Christmas and the end of the year.  The “Islamic New Year” on December 29th may be a turning point of some kind.
