Pumpkin Power

Goblins for change.

jm, I very much appreciate your aesthetic sensibilities. Have a "treat" for you today to support the site!

This has nothing to do with the subject of your post, but with the issue of wealth redistribution in the campaign lately, it's interesting that the Pluto transit to the U.S. Venus is within range. Also, the cardinal t-square will impact the 2nd and 8th houses (in both Sibley and Gemini rising charts). I wonder if we will be having a national "conversation" about this in the days ahead. Given the massive wealth transfer to the people at the top the last eight years, seems we're due for one.

Helena, omg! What a surprise treat! Thank you so much. Distribution is highly appreciated here and the site thrives on support!

The issue of wealth distribution is going to be big which is why the discussion that's just emerged intrigues me so much. The whole idea that just the word "socialism" creates terror is interesting. It's a very good sign since the conservative approach of selfishness has failed for now. Added to the transits you mentioned are the USA nodes in the 2nd and 8th, and the morbid fear of poverty that the SN 2nd carries. It happens anyway until the sharing of resources in the 8th is learned. All the upcoming transits are pointing to a major discussion and tax reform is ahead. Democrats always come into power during these times. It brings us back to the origin of this country and taxation without representation. It's always been the problem but maybe if they get more engaged and feel the benefits, people will resent taxation a little bit less. Liking our leaders helps.

I caught an interesting moment with an undecided focus group. The question was asked about higher taxes for the 250K and above. The majority raised their hands.

The logic escapes most people but one comment I read from a guy who makes above the 250K nailed it. I find it hard that most don't comprehend this, but if the customers don't have money, businesses lose income and fail more easily. So simple. That's why money in the pockets of the middle class is vital. I'm looking forward to the national conversation.

I've noticed that the more I love the more I feel like sharing so what if the atmosphere of hatred winds down a little bit? Maybe it must for survival reasons. The hate in this country has never been more clearly expressed and I think some people are finally shocked. Sharing the wealth works for everyone. I expect the pendulum to swing back to the laborers since the corporations need their purchase power. Slavery is so yesterday.

Spreading fertilizes growth. Contraction in many ways is due with Pluto in Capricorn like a gigantic breathing system. In and out. Back and forth.

The discussion is hot today on Huffpost and this is just the beginning. The Internet has opened up a new room.

I've been thinking about this for the last few days. Again, the same wavelength going around. Several people have said in blogs and in old-fashioned letters to the editor that the best way to get us all moving is to give the people a break on their mortgage payments and taxes so they would, ta-dah, have more money to spend on things they need and keep businesses afloat.

One person pointed out that the same crowd screaming about socialism and spreading the wealth sure didn't complain when the wealth was spread in their direction.

And that woman has sure been spreading the wealth in Alaska, yet she's out there honking about Obama's "socialism."

Pot, meet kettle.

Well, I wasn't been able to hear her voice in the beginning and now my TV is on the fritz so I still don't have any way to listen to her. But from all accounts, she does have a honking tone of voice.

As the Irish say, she thinks she's a siren but she just sounds like one.
