The Celestial Wheel On Popular Protests
Popular protests have long been anticipated. In December 2004, the In-depth Forecast, The United States Through Its Planetary Cycles -- Part I 1776 to 1895, unveiled the repetition of Gilded Ages and consequent protests in the late nineteenth century are happening again. Recent predictions include:
The September 15 In-Depth Forecast, Mars & Saturn Recap ended with,
The September 19 VedicLeaks identified and described the effects of the challenging transits in September and October of Mars through its fallen sign of Cancer and the personal planets Mercury/Venus and the Sun running a gauntlet by crossing Saturn in Virgo. Among these karmas is, Popular protests are a factor.
The October 6 VedicLeaks continued the discussion, unveiling the psychology,
There is, naturally, much more going on the the American psyche. The gradual budding-out of popular resentments into popular protests speaks to frustration bringing anger and also fear. It has been three years since the economy crashed, and the year-long respite that ended this past May gave hopes that have been cruelly crushed. The July 4 In-depth Forecast, Tipping Point, explains,
Politically, the already hard-right Republicans are pushed even further into their fear-based mystical paranoia and hence extreme religious libertarianism. They now demand an anti-government Messiah to run against Obama, the black Antichrist. But alas no one is Ronald Reagan, even as he would blush in shame with how they've exaggerated his conservative policies. The left, always slow to organize for its diversity and lack of militarism, is finally coming forward with Occupy -- after false starts last winter with protests in Wisconsin and U.S. Uncut. But even as the great middle of America joins their cause, Occupy is befuddled for Obama being the great compromiser when an advocate is needed. Remember, The Celestial Wheel has long suggested this is Hilary Clinton's time. There's a lot of water to go over the damn before either party chooses its candidate, and Obama is not the de facto choice in the minds of most Democrats and independents. Notice no one needs her last name.
The Occupy Wall Street protests began September 17 -- during the early stages of the these challenging transits.
Other popular protests are happening. United States Postal workers protest cuts. And recall elections protesting union-busting legislation passed last winter are slated for this November, Wisconsin and Ohio: Resistance Rising. These are different from the Occupy protests for being specific and political.
The Occupy movement is a protest against the aggregate and cumulative abuses of Second Gilded Age robber barons -- which has shifted wealth and political/government influence to the a few individuals and big corporations -- The country is now like the milk we used to get in glass bottles before homogenization -- all the cream is on the top. It makes sense that Wall Street is the initial Occupy target as symbolizing the greediest of them all. There's no argument with this approach, for it establishes an ethical baseline to which nearly all Americans can relate. This powerful societal message has spurred Occupy protests to spread throughout the country. It's a nationwide movement.
However, there's a lack of specific action -- even as everyone knows well it was the Banksters who brought us the housing bubble and bust that continues to sink America -- while they convinced the government to bail them out and then quickly resumed their orgy of greed, On Wall Street, most still expect bonuses.
Break The Banksters
By targeting the Banksters, they can be held accountable for ruining the economy. Further, the Banksters serve and support the Second Gilded Age Robber Barons in other fields, for they hold the money! Where do you think the $2 trillion corporations have on hand is? Even Serta doesn't keep it under their mattress. So, bust the big banks, and the other Second Gilded Age robber barons will also lose their power.
You don't have to travel to Wall Street, or attend a rally in your community to bust the Banksters. In fact, that form of protest is effective in only a general way by raising awareness -- like promoting breast exams for women then stimulates them to take individual action and have those exams.
Vote With Your Wallet
You can vote with your wallet by pulling your money from the big banks, where you're at risk from their greed anyway. The Celestial Wheel has made this case many, many times. Fight their money by taking out yours. See the February 2010 In-depth Forecast, Bankers -- Economic Terrorists. After all, banks keep less than 10% of their deposits on hand, lending out the rest. So, if they lose 10% of their deposits, they are out of business.
It's called a run on the bank, and it's the Banksters' Achilles heel. These were common until the FDIC was formed in 1933 to stop the cycle of greedy criminal bankster booms and busts, but there's not enough FDIC money to cover the losses of a vast Bankster Bank. And there aren't any other banks large enough to absorb one of their ilk. Certainly too, the government won't dare another bailout.
There are still some 8000 banks in the U.S. and more choices by adding in credit unions. This is not an oligopoly like cellular companies, where the choice is the least worst, but rather a huge number of good alternatives, most of which actually serve the community.
American University's Investigative Reporting Workshop is a great tool for finding a bank in your community that is not too big and isn't overly burdened by failed loans. If the Troubled Asset Ratio is too high, it indicates greedy and unethical lending, the inability to properly carry out routine banking functions and the risk of being closed by the FDIC -- and then gifted to a Bankster Bank. Good local community banks understand it's your money, they treat you fairly without gouging fees, they actually lend out locally to support the community, and they pay taxes. The Bankster banks do none of these, which are the only and true duties of a bank.
Banks, after all, exist only to safeguard your money and loan it out responsibly to others to promote business development. In return, they pay you interest and make modest salaries. Banks themselves create nothing. They only facilitate commerce. And banks must be tightly regulated to avoid misuse of your money, including using it to enrich their employees. The cookie jar must be guarded, for the cookie monster bankster is always trying to figure out ways to get the money for himself.
Don't Accept Bankster Payments
If you are in business, stop accepting debit and credit card and check payments from the Bankster Banks. This will not only reduce their fees but also effectively drive their customers away as they find those cards and checks are no longer accepted in many places. It also makes the statement that you don't do business with criminal enterprises, whether the mafia or Banksters.

Use Bankster Shave
Use this nifty graphic I designed and offered in the March 24, 2011 In-depth Forecast, The Chaos Is Stirring -- Bankster Shave. Then protests in Wisconsin and Ohio against union-busting laws were in full swing, and U.S. Uncut folks were rallying against corporations that paid no taxes.
Bankster Shave harkens back to the old Burma Shave signs along highways before the high speed interstate system took over. Last March was too early, but now is the time to use Bankster Shave, for Americans are taking this personally.
Pass it around the wallet-sized version and E-mail the full-sized Bankster Shave to friends. Put it in the window of your home or office or car. Give it to Bankster employees you know for they need to understand they work for criminal enterprises, no better than the Mafia. Send it to your local newspaper, favorite blog or media web site. Put it on it on your Facebook home page and wall. Silk screen it on shirts. Or use Bankster Shave Wallet-sized to make stickers to put on Bankster ATM machines, office windows...... Of course, Halloween is coming.
And if you really want to make in impact, get together with friends and to fund it as a real billboard. The image on Bankster Shave can be used by the billboard company. Billboards aren't expensive, and thousands of drivers seeing it each day will really get attention! That would go viral, for sure.
Bankster Shave makes a terrific protest sign too!
And remember The Celestial Wheel's efforts on your behalf-- as this early wave of popular protests turns into a tsunami that can over=wash Second Gilded Age monied interests and their bought-and-paid-for politicians and civil servants. The Second Progressive Age is ours to create, to restore shared democratic values -- but it is also our obligation to do the work, for the folks we are saving are us. You can take that to the bank.
(Celestial Wheel Participation plans via Pay Pal are available for as little as $4. If just 100 of you Participate, I'll use the money to buy a billboard on U.S. 41 in Sarasota, Florida.)
A Closing Insight
The youngish Occupy folks are clever and offer a comforting sense of humor to offset the fear and dread of the future that has frozen their elders into inaction. These youthful Americans are brave as befits their age, when they still feel immortal and invincible. Let's follow them with effective action, beginning with Bankster Shave.
