Our Future

I'm confident. With Pluto in solid Capricorn I think there's a good chance our country's builders will be of a high standard. Erectors learn young, using quite complicated sets.
Of course, I live in the lower niches, so I feel reasonably secure with whatever transpires.
I understand Minneapolis, Minnesota is rebuilding her bridge today. The best of fortune from me, Jm. Your Saturn in Capricorn will certainly come in handy.

I'm no longer worried. We will change by necessity, and the movement will be away from centralized authority. It seems inevitable to me. I see the signs everywhere. People are preparing for this new industry. It seems such a delicious paradox. The ones who have the most to lose are actually bringing on their own losses faster. The rest of us without the "houses full of gold and jade", if we realize what's going on, can prepare, let go our most pressing worries, and watch this show.

I think you're right, mpk. Look at this:

Fed pumps $41 billion into US financial system

The image that comes to mind is a frantic doctor trying to revive a corpse.

On another topic, I'm cautiously glad they chose to start the new bridge construction after Mercury went direct.

From my understanding, the Mpls bridge builders are beginning today (Merc about to turn direct by drilling a hole through the sand into "solid" rock; they will then add a steel casing and pour in concrete, and when it's hardened will attempt to destroy it -- to be sure as possible of the long-term strength of the support system. How's that for Saturn in Virgo details?
But we're getting an extra strong dose of Neptune as he stations? Whether that's good timing for this, I'm not so sure.

I'm not usually so sloppy with punctuation, as I'm Saturn in Virgo. I'll blame it on Mercury.

You are so absolutely right mpk and beautifully stated. We do change by necessity. The perfect reason.

The ones who have the most to lose are actually bringing on their own losses faster. The rest of us without the "houses full of gold and jade", if we realize what's going on, can prepare, let go our most pressing worries, and watch this show.

Love it. I've always enjoyed my simple existence but more than ever right now. I do agree that the demise of the others seems to be stepped up. Dead weight.

I'm back to watching. My dictum: "It does what it does."

let go our most pressing worries

That's fascinating pd. Thanks for this information. I'm sure the timing is right. There is something right and wrong with every moment. The wrong is part of the whole and actually helps achieve a good outcome. Stability. As Paul Klee says about evil. It provides ethical stability.

I had a funny feeling so I looked it up. Bridges are rules by Pluto, Saturn, and Neptune. Maybe the station of Neptune will add stability. Minneapolis is a Pisces city with Saturn in Cap and she knows what she's doing. This is a great start to Pluto in Cap and the heavy rebuilding ahead. Also a good sign that the overt destructive phase could largely be over.

The Moon is in Leo..pride.. and it's trining the Pluto and Jupiter in Sagittarius. The NN is on Minn's Sun. More pride. Jup is at 19, the degree Pluto was in when the Iraq invasion took place so I see this as real bridge and a return to the homeland with Mars in Cancer. Mars is drilling and the whole thing seems symbolic of deep security, coming down to a solid rock base of internal support.

Could we be through with the shifting sands of the desert back home to rock and steel? Time will tell.

I think it's going to be a boss bridge! Their hearts are certainly into it. They weathered the experience beautifully.

With California and Minneapolis doing so well with their own problems I think the die is cast. And it applies to the hard rock security of our own lives.

I really do get the feeling that at least subconsciously the people are understanding the trap that the national politicians are in. We have to get going without them. They can't help themselves and we can't help them right now. They'll catch up when they're ready but we'll have to go it alone for awhile. And we're more prepared than people realize. Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. Liberation comes in all kinds of ways.

I'm pretty sure that the USA was suckered into this war by European and Middle Eastern factions and now she is being forced to stay by these players. A blackmail type thingie. No choice, which is why I thought the Uranus passage into Aries might bring that liberation as well, hopefully with this young country a little bit wiser. The leaders of the last years, well before Bush and including Clinton, got mixed up in some pretty bad deals. Over their heads. Understanding is a great idea as we forge ahead. The bad experiences are vital to knowledge.

And yet the market, unsoothed, plunged hundreds of points today. Unusual!

Ooooh. ouch! I just saw it.

Even with Scorpio the corpse is catatonic.

All a part of the Mars in Cancer prelude to Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is big money and Cap is financial systems. Lots to come.

A New York Fed spokesman said it was the largest single day of operations since $50.35 billion was pumped into the system on Sept. 19, 2001, following the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington. He declined further comment.

Interesting connections here. That day Jupiter was at 12 Cancer exactly inconjunct Pluto at 12 on the USA asc, where Mars is now, almost on the Sun and just about to turn retrograde. Mars was in Capricorn conjunct the SN in 2001. This Cancer-Cap cycle is repeated more than I can believe.

Back to my earlier connections to the Trade Towers, security and the added Jupiter now at the war degree of 19. More indications of the financial restructuring ahead. The tax giveaway to the rich expires in 2010 just as Uranus and Jupiter enter Aries. We shall see. More indications of what mpk was saying about the guilded corpses.

A fitting end to Pluto in Sadge too. The wild speculative swings are exciting to gamblers -- the thrills of Sagittarius, but now stability and reality around finances are coming in. The same thing before the Depression when speculation was at a high. Fascinating how the housing market (Cancer) and credit (the future) are the cornerstones. It's always been money with this country and always will be. SN 2nd, NN 8th. The SN will soon be in Leo. Watch your gambling.

After the Depression and the rebuilding came the housing post war boom when everyone was a king in his castle. Then he was a king in three castles with 5 toilets per capita. So it's housing again as reality enters so predictably in this Cancer country.

The SN in the 2nd has a fear of poverty that is hard to explain. This is probably why the Depression was such an event here. In other countries they do better with financial down cycles, but here the fear is huge. Probably the reason for the overbuilding of shelter. Lessons forthcoming. The burning of the dross just happened in California.

Perhaps it's also appropriate to start the new Mpls bridge on All Saints Day, as it is close to the only falls of note on the Mississippi, the Falls of St. Anthony. And the other Twin City, St. Paul (a solar Scorpio city), is close by, and will host the Republican convention in 08.
To put the bridge event in further perspective, there was a severe drought in effect at the time it went down on Aug. 1 (though a brief shower passed over just after the collapse). By mid-August a veritable monsoon was underway, and by mid-October, a rainfall deficit over a year and a half had been wiped out.

By the way, nice photo of the kid with the screwdriver.

A friend came by today. I will call him B.G. (business geek). B.G. glanced at the blog photo visible on my computer screen and commented, "That's a nice black-and-white photo."

I said, "Yeah, it is."

He said, "It reminds me of my dad."

I said, "Yeah, I thought of that, too! Is it the overall look, the posture, the concentration, the fact that he's building something?"

"Everything!" B.G. replied. "Even the neat haircut and the tie."

His dad is a chemistry prof at a school of art, design, business, and technology. Very nice guy, good family.

That is so fascinating pd. I forgot about the convention. The rainfall I knew nothing about.

I don't like the SN in Virgo in the bridge chart, of course, but I gave it some thought. There might be technical difficulties but the delays and reworking might lead to some experimentation and innovation, with the Neptune station in Aquarius and the NN coming.

There's some connection to the convention and I'd like to psyche that one out.

It's a bridge to something still unknown.

That's wonderful kadi! I, too, like the kid and the feeling of paternal and future security. The dignity.

What kind of school is that? Sounds wonderful!

Very reassuring to know there are dads and kids like these.

"What kind of school is that? Sounds wonderful!"

It's FIT -- Fashion Institute of Technology. Seems to be a quality urban commuter school overall, good for "self-motivated" independent types, judging from student comments. Demanding course load, competitive atmosphere and industry.

"Very reassuring to know there are dads and kids like these."

B.G. has lunch with his dad most Thursdays.

In the early eighties, B.G. thought that life was short and that nuclear disaster was imminent. He investigated mind-altering substances for fun and profit with like-minded fellows. His dad sat down next to him one day and quietly stated that it hurt to see B.G. burn his life out like that, and that he wished he would stop. Two simple sentences, and B.G. promptly changed direction.

If B.G.'s working late without advance warning, his wife puts a toddler on the phone to tell him to hurry. One time, B.G. was due to leave for a business trip, and one of his children declared, "I'm going to tell the pilot not to take off."

"I, too, like the kid and the feeling of paternal and future security. The dignity."

Dignity, yes. Comfortable. Creative connection of mind and body, expressed in utilitarian material forms. A lot of earth and fire in the family.
