I mainly posted this because of the interesting patterns which can be seen throughout our history, embedded in our collective consciousness.
As J.P Morgan Chase said:
“Millionaires don’t use Astrology, billionaires do.”
The consistent thread of these archetypes can draw up many meanings within us and there is a heavy program of ‘mind controlling interpretations’ poured out from our would-be masters. But what is essential about all patterns in our reality is our ability as creators to charge them with meaning, and it is this personal intrinsic meaning which creates effects in our reality; hence the need of the powers that were to constantly push their meanings on us. When we develop Intrinsic understanding of our reality and place in it – an accurate representation of what IS – create harmony within.
WORLD PREDICTIONS 2014
ASTROLOGY PREDICTIONS 2014
A SIGN OF THE TIMES
You remember 2012. No reputable astrologer gave it a second thought, but even the modern Mayans couldn’t quell the new age media hype. But…2014…well that’s a different ball game. It’s not the end of the world – although it may be for some – but it will put you on the edge of your seat. Here’s your galactic guide to a rather attention-grabbing year ahead.
The key planetary cycle of 2014 is the ongoing and challenging square between insurgent Uranus in aggressive Aries and controlling Pluto in governing Capricorn. It is pitting the freedom of the individual against the control of the state, and the culture of nations against the monolithic steamroller of globalization.
As Confucius reasons, to understand the future – consult the past. The last square of Uranus and Pluto occurred between 1932-34 as the world climbed out of paralyzing economic depression. The fear dividing Europe was of being devoured by the polar political ideals of Russian collective communism or American unbridled capitalism. Both came to pass.
Aldous Huxley encapsulated this concern in one of the all time great novels. ‘Brave New World’ was released on January 30 1932. It depicted a spiritless one-world state, governed via operant conditioning and mass media misinformation with an economic model based on assembly line consumption of disposable consumer goods. Soma – or drugs – kept the people happy.
Huxley evoked the omnipresent fear of loss of individual identity and life purpose in an increasingly impersonal world. It was a prophetic sign of the times – art was imitating life. The Uranus Pluto square of the early 1930’s then saw the rise of a new order promising a perfect world under dictators such as Adolf Hitler, riding the ‘cult of personality’.
As Jupiter briefly came to join the Uranus Pluto square in the January of 1934 the sterilization law was passed in Germany. Nazi repression crushed political opposition on the way to world domination; in Russia secret police conducted Stalinist purges. Absolute power corrupted. As it was then, it’s a clear message of what we must avoid today.
BRAVE NEW ORDER
Uranus and Pluto are back in square. The biggest headline of 2013 came via NSA contractor Edward Snowden. His revelation of the astounding degree of secret surveillance the US government was carrying out on its own citizens, international allies and world leaders was frightening. Fittingly, Snowden was born with Mercury the ‘messenger’ rising in the information sign of Gemini.
Snowden also blew the cover off an ongoing ‘Five Eye’ alliance of stealth, involving the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. As well as compromising the privacy and freedom of individuals worldwide, the revelations revealed a network of global dominance.
Revelations flowed. And as they have, whistleblowers like Snowden, have been incarcerated. Confucius is on the money – and some people can’t handle the truth.
THE INDIVIDUAL VS THE STATE
Snowden warns, “There is a huge difference between legal programs, legitimate spying … and these programs of dragnet mass surveillance that put entire populations under an all-seeing eye and save copies forever … These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power.”
His chilling Christmas message was “A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves, an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought. And that’s a problem because privacy matters, privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.”
Resistance against such stealth and supremacy is classic Uranus Pluto stuff. Pluto is the dark subterranean deity of hidden agendas in corporate controlling Capricorn. Uranus is the rebellious freedom fighter, openly agitating against oppressive governance in the independent sign of Aries.
2014 will see legislation addressing this monopolistic mentality, as individuals fight state control. The planet of law, Jupiter, re-enters the square of Uranus and Pluto from late January through to the end of April 2014. It first went into the square in early August 2013, when Snowden was granted diplomatic asylum. The current Uranus Pluto combination, born in the sixties, is again addressing the issue of civil rights.
REVOLUTIONARY GRAND CROSS
The predominant aspect building from this square is a planetary Grand Cross perfecting between April 20-24, in the action oriented cardinal signs. The planets involved are forceful Mars in normally diplomatic Libra, opposing insurgent Uranus in assertive Aries. Reforming Pluto in governing Capricorn, and fervent Jupiter in nationalistic Cancer complete the potent pattern.
If your head’s getting a little dizzy with the details, it signifies situations building to a crucial crisis point resulting in dramatic and accelerated actions. Simplifying, the whole formation is built around an ongoing T-Square involving Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. The latter are drastic reformers, whilst Jupiter adds a religious zeal or exaggerated sense of justice to the mix. History adds further insight.
The same T- Square operated throughout 1793, during the height of the French Revolution. It was the year of the public executions of Louis XVI at the first square and his consort Marie Antoinette at the last. Jupiter also formed an ongoing T-Square with Uranus and Pluto in 1648 the year of the English Civil War, which saw the demise of King Charles 1.
This portrays the fall of imperious leaders or former leaders, especially in countries of already profound political unrest. There is an increasing probability of revolutionary acts, peaking from 2014 and challenging the more oppressive government rule, with enduring repercussions. It is hardly inconsequential as the examples above were seminal moments of political shift.
The effect will vary consistent with the political climate of the countries involved. For example Pakistan, whose horoscope fields this Grand Cross, is now in the news over the trial of former leader General Musharraf.
The Grand Cross also impacts upon the horoscopes of the United Nations, the USA, Iran, Israel, China, Venezuela, Canada, Cuba, Burma, Somalia and perhaps not surprisingly the union of England and Scotland. It won’t all happen at the Grand Cross of course – it is just setting the tone.
THE NOT SO UNITED NATIONS
The United Nations was born from World War Two with the goals of maintaining world peace and providing a forum of international debate furthering human rights and global unity. The organization began operations at 16.45 hours on October 24 1945 in New York, annually celebrated as United Nations Day.
Despite the noblest of intentions, any institute is only as effective as the commitment of its member states. Revealingly, the operational costs of the United Nations amounts to only 3% of global military spending. However, with its Sun at the Mercury/Jupiter midpoint, the UN remains a strident and vital voice of global issues.
The horoscope of the United Nations will experience the April Grand Cross impacting on the Midheaven, or the leadership and authority area of their chart. It will also field the October 24 2014 Solar Eclipse directly on its Scorpio Sun. Reforming Pluto will move across the Midheaven degree right across the following year of 2015.
All of this suggests challenging times ahead for the Security Council and the effectiveness of the United Nations in carrying out their role as global mediator. It seems to presage more serious international conflicts building over the next two years as regional differences reach crisis points?
Ban Ki-moon, born June 13 1944, in Eumseong County South Korea is the current Secretary-General of the United Nations. Fittingly, his negotiating Gemini Sun and peacemaking Venus sit right on the public Moon of the United Nations horoscope. In late April of 2014 his progressed Sun will also field the Grand Cross, further evidencing the importance of this time and the challenges ahead. His progressed chart shows further tests in 2015.
The birthday of the United States of America is annually celebrated from the Declaration of Independence. The oldest horoscope of the US was published by astrologer Ebenezer Sibley, and commonly accepted as coming into being at 17.10 hours in Philadelphia July 4 1776.
The US has a patriotic Cancer Sun, in square to controlling Saturn, in the justice scales of Libra and the tenth house of public authority. It contributes to the US being recognized as the global policeman. This role may be exacerbated during 2014 due to the spectacular Grand Cross formation. It is auspicious that this happens in April.
SOMETHING WEIRD ABOUT APRIL?
The third week of April is a decisive one in US history. It was on April 19 that the original US Revolutionary War began in 1775, and the same date in 1861 produced the first casualties of what was to be a long and protracted Civil War, claiming more victims than all other US wars combined. The list below shows the importance of April with important events in the national history.
1906 April 18 San Francisco earthquake
1947 April 16 Texas City Explosion – worst ever industrial accident
1961 April 16 Bay of Pigs invasion failure
1983 April 18 Beirut US Embassy bombed
1993 April 19 Branch Davidian Compound torched Waco Texas
1995 April 19 Oklahoma City Bombing
1999 April 20 Columbine High shootings
2007 April 16 Virginia Tech Massacre
2010 April 20 Deepwater Horizon explosion
2013 April 15 Boston Marathon bombing.
Already US security chiefs would be aware of such an unusual pattern, especially as the eclipse cycle is returning to the degrees it occupied in 1995, year of the Oklahoma bombing. It makes preventative vigilance doubly important to curb insurgent attacks upon the government, authorities, or embassies in 2014.
