SUN SQUARE PLUTO EVENTS September 21, 2008
In my last post, I was wondering what this weekend's
important aspects might bring in examining at the U.S. chart
I follow; which is for the signing of the Articles of
Confederation..November 15, 1777..12:46 PM.. York
Pennsylvania. Well it certainly was eventful as
two important events transpired.
One was the massive truck bombing that occurred at
Islamabad's Marriott Hotel in Pakistan at 8 PM Saturday
night (September 20th). Taliban militants based near the
Afghan border and their as-Qaida allies are the most likely
suspects behind it, officials and experts said Sunday.
At least 60 people died and 260 were injured in the explosion,
including two U.S. Defense Department employees and the
The truck sat burning and disabled at the hotel gate for at
least 3 1/2 minutes as nervous guards tried to douse the
flames before they, the truck and much of the hotel forecourt
vanished in a fearsome fireball according to dramatic
surveillance footage released Sunday.
The attack on the American hotel chain during Ramadan
among the deadliest terriorist strikes in Pakistan, will test the
resolve of its pro-Western civilian rulers to crack down on
growing violent extremism which many here blame on the
country's role in the U.S.-led war on terror.
While no group has claimed responsibility, the scale of the
blast and its high-profile target were seen by many as the
signature of media-savvy al-Quida.
We can see the event in the triple chart I have
constructed. The inner wheel is the natal U.S.
chart..the middle wheel is the progressed chart, and
the outer wheel is for the time the bomb went off. It
happened when when the Sun in the 7th house of
partnerships came up to conjoin U.S. Neptune at 28
Virgo, it formed a T-square with transiting Pluto
(violence-terrorism) at 28 Sagittarius 32 which
conjoined the progressed U.Snodes at that degree in
Sagittarius and Gemini, which are conjunct the natal
U.S. 11th and 5th house cusps, and the event took
place. Also at that precise time, 11AM Washington
DC time, (8PM in Islamabad), the ascendant was 16
Scorpio17 in the 9th house of foreign countries,
which formed a T-square to the transiting nodes at
16 degrees and 23 minutes of Leo and Aquarius.
In another direction, momentous financial
problems came to a head as Pluto (rules banks)
was so seriously afflicted. Government officials
have been sequestered (Neptune) with members of
Congress over the weekend to seek bipartisan
agreement on a $700bn Wall Street bailout
They tell us this is necessary to save our whole
financial structure. This has certainly been a week
that shook the system to its core. The dire
square aspect Pluto has been involved with in the
U.S. chart this weekend that involves the
progressed nodes, and the 11th and 5th house cusps
finally indicate that all of the financial expansion
and excesses Pluto went through as it traveled
through the sign of Sagittarius have to finally be
reckoned with; or in other words, the chickens have
come home to roost! So now what?
Some pundits tell us that America's options have
finally dwindled to just two: Accept a 1930s-style
deflationary crash or embark on a Weimar
Republic-style hyperinflation, and there was
never much doubt about which course our
leaders would choose. But today (Monday
September 21st) they made it official. Treasury will
assume essentially dictatorial powers to buy up
pretty much the entire U.S.financial system, and the
Fed will print the required trillions.
Sounds like Pluto going back into Capricorn on
November 26th is going to have his work cut out for
him for many years to come to get us out of this
