midpoint of a trine between his progressed Jupiter at

20 Aries 14R and his natal Jupiter at 22 Aries 34R

4. Transiting Mars at 01 Pisces 30 conjoins transiting

Neptune at 2 Pisces 10, and both go on to trine his

progressed Mars at 03 Scorpio 11. 

5.Transiting Venus at 02 Aquarius 20 tines his natal

south node at 00 Libra 15R, (could bring him a Super

Bowl ring) although, at the same time, it squares his

progressed Mars at 03 Scorpio 11.

6. Progressed Pluto (his Sun sign ruler) at 10 Scorpio

56 has moved up to conjoin his natal Sun at 10

Scorpio 47 and sextiles transiting Pluto at 10

Capricorn 28.

7.Transiting Saturn at 11 Scorpio 20 is still working,

and has been strengthening that sextile recently also.

It is interesting to see that natally Flacco has Jupiter

conjunct his Sun in Capricorn by one degree and

Kaepernick has Pluto in Scorpio conjunct his Sun by

one degree. This ties into Joe having a tight knit

relationship with his very Italian (Jupiter) family. And

Kaepernick was adopted, which I feel, relates to to his

Scorpio conjunction.

I think that progressed Uranus will keep doing its

magic, plus with all of the other favorable aspects

working that day for Kaepernick, I think the 49er's are

going to win!

Another odd thing is that two coaches that happen to

brothers will be pitted against each other. How Uranian

is that?

Some months ago I wrote about an important progression becoming exact in the U.S. chart I follow; which is for the signing of the Articles of Confederation which happened on November 15, 1777 at 12:46 PM in York, Pennsylvania. I relocated the natal chart for Washington, D.C. which does not change it any. Below is a triple wheel with the natal chart on the inside, the middle wheel is  the progressed, which became exact today (the 6th) and the outer wheel is for the transits for today also .


 What I was referring to is progressed Venus coming up to 9 Leo 43 in the 6th house of the work force exactly squaring natal U.S. Mercury at 9 Scorpio 43 in the 8th house; the house of the earning power of the nation. This house also rules the National Debt, financial organizations (our dysfunctional banks) ... all in crisis mode as well!

Add to that, the transiting nodes at 9 degrees of Aquarius and Leo which turn it into a T- square and add even more weight to it. Isn't it interesting that with the sign of Leo so heavily involved, many CEO's are being criticized because of their extravagant bonuses, taking expensive vacations, buying corporate jets, etc., all while taking taxpayers money. But the T-square, as well as the recent Solar  eclipse at 6 Aquarius 30  on January 26th tells us that all of this has ended.                                             

These aspects so tied into President Obama's speech earlier on Friday, the 6th about the terrible unemployment numbers that just came out. He said that the latest economic news and jobless numbers demand action and it's "inexcusable and irresponsible" for Congress to delay on his economic recovery package. In prepared remarks for a White House appearance, the president pointed to the unemployment report for January. Employers slashed payrolls by 598,000, the most since the end of 1974, catapulting the unemployment rate to 7.6 percent.

Some people are saying that things are so bad now, they are equating it  with the great Depression of the 1930's when 13 million people became unemployed. In 1932, 34 million people belonged to families with no regular full-time wage earner. Industrial production fell by nearly 45% between the years 1929 and 1932. During those years, home building dropped by 80% . In the 1920's the banking system in the U.S. was about $50 billion, which was  about 50% of GNP. But from the years of 1929 to 1932, about 5,000 banks went out of business, and by 1933, 11,000 of the US' 25,000 banks had failed. Between 1929 and 1933, the U.S. GDP fell around 30 %, and the stock market lost almost 90% of its value. Between 1929 and 1932 the income of the average American family was reduced by 40% and 273,000 families were  evicted from their homes in 1932. As a result, two million homeless people migrated around the country and bread lines sprang up and were a common sight all over.



The interesting astrological correlation between then and now is that in 1929, natal U.S. Mercury was also afflicted. Only then it was by an opposition. Instead of the progressed Venus affliction we have now, it was via progressed U.S. Mars which came up to 9 Taurus 05 in the 2nd house of the nation's wealth. This affected the purchasing power of the nation, its national expenditures,its currency and its circulation and liquid assets; hence the wealth and prosperity of the people as measured by their collective earning and buying power, as well as investors and their investments. Furthermore in 1935, progressed Venus came up to 9 degrees of Taurus, taking its turn to oppose natal U.S. Mercury, and in 1942, the progressed Sun followed and reached 9 Taurus also. So it wasn't until after those oppositions were over that the economy began to improve. And it was due to our gearing up our mass production capability during World War 11.  So it is interesting that it has taken progressed Venus 74 years to go from opposing natal U.S. Mercury, to squaring it, as it is doing presently!

But coming back to today's crisis, President Obama said he is certain senators are reading the same present unemployment numbers, and that he hopes they share his urgency to act and pass his recovery package. While his bill isn't perfect, he went on to say that it is "absolutely necessary." Furthermore, he said that if something isn't done fast to change the direction of the economy, it  could turn into a "catastrophic" situation. But low and behold, just before the day ended, late Friday night, the Senate broke through their stalemate and  agreed on a Stimulus Package.  

Another aspect to note in the U.S. chart is transiting Neptune, now just three minutes from squaring the U.S. Sun in the 9th house at 23 Scorpio 46..the sign of banking. As nebulous Neptune was slowly moving up, does this tell us that the money allocated previously to the banks with no strings attached was just wasted? I think so! Work on the plan continues into the weekend, as we approach the Lunar Eclipse at 21 Leo on February 9th; turning the Neptune square the U.S. Sun into a T-square.  At the same time, however, Neptune does trine progressed U.S. Mercury at 23 Gemini 25 in the 4th house, which rules builders, the housing and living conditions of the people. So hopefully a practical agreement can be hammered out in Congress in the end; as in looking at the big picture of Pluto now in Capricorn demands.   

To complicate things further, natal U.S. Neptune  at 28 Virgo in the 7th house is in a T-square with the progressed nodes at 28 degrees and 56 minutes of Gemini and Sagittarius (foreign) tells us that this is a global crisis, and not one that is just affecting us.

A day after officials of the incoming Obama administration promised to take steps to force banks to lend, Britain outlined details of a new £100 billion, or $147.5 billion, plan to limit banks? losses from troubled assets in exchange for their pledge to increase the flow of credit.   This will be legally binding, the British prime minister said.  In France the "or else is described by none less than President Sarkozy who has said the banks must lend or be seized. 

The French have a new plan that would require banks receiving new capital injections to make ?precise commitments,? including giving up bonuses this year.   Denmark announced an $18 billion aid plan for its banks, saying it would inject the funds on the condition that the recipients increase lending.   Last week, the Irish government nationalized the Anglo Irish Bank, rendering equity stakes worthless. Frustrated people are starting to protest and riot in some countries as well.

With transiting Mercury squaring the U.S.natal Venus as well as the U.S. progressed ascendant now, as well as transiting Venus squaring transiting Pluto, and transiting Mars conjoining the U.S. progressed Pluto in the 12th house of secret deal making, our new president really has his hands full as he tries to get his economic recovery package passed. We still have to get through transiting Jupiter coming up to 8 and 9 degrees of Aquarius in the U.S. 12th house which will add its weight to the aforementioned T-square involving U.S. natal Saturn and Mercury in the next few weeks. But after that, hopefully things can improve somewhat as  some of these dire aspects move on down the road! One thing is for sure, and that is that nobody wants to experience another "Great Depression"!
