This is a catching up Short-subject Commentary.
There's a Temporary Lull In The Planetary Energies
The following was emailed directly to subscribers last Tuesday.
Mercury is a major culprit here for this planet of communications and the intellect is both retrograde and badly afflicted by Saturn. While the other planets are better disposed now, Mercury remains under Saturn's constrictive gaze and will continue so until Wednesday, September 23. Mercury ends retrograde September 29, but unfortunately it then retraces its steps across Saturn, and won't be free of this blocking influence until October 9.
So, use care in all your communications activities and understand your intellectual mind, the objective calculating part, doesn't always compute. As Mercury also naturally relates to business, there can be reversals there, mix-ups, deceptions, failures to complete transactions....
An In-depth Forecast
This is the first Short-subject Commentary in September. The September 7, 2009 In-depth Forecast, A Stormy Fall, replaced that publishing -- tracing out the pattern of planetary influences.
Below is the Timeline in A Stormy Fall. You can readily see the pileup of planetary energies this month -- and then Mars' very long eight month destructive stay in Cancer beginning early next month.
Turning Lemons Into Lemonade
A Stormy Fall included describing results from Saturn ending its destructive transit through Leo -- the third hit in the Millennium Contraction -- which continues until 2015, when society will be dramatically transformed. Thankfully that Leo transit ended September 10 and did not bring further global harms. It seems, rather, that it was individuals who were impacted most during the last few days of the transit. An acquaintance's car completely died September 6, and it took him until September 9 to have a tow truck deliver it to the junk yard. This opened up a new opportunity though, and he found a good deal on a reliable car right away.
Another fellow was greeted on September 9 with the news that his landlady wanted him out by the end of the month, for no apparent reason. Next, he received long-delayed mail from Las Vegas that included notifications of financial setbacks. Yet, like the first man, good news followed this week with a financial windfall, enabling a beneficial move to Colorado.
A lady had been dutifully clearing out excess junk when a big storm hit Sedona.. Now she had 15 bags of trash and a debris-strewn soggy front yard. Two benefits followed. First, the City put a dumpster around the corner, giving free disposal of the trash. Second, a meeting at City hall resulted in a commitment to fix the drainage system -- to prevent this chronic problem from recurring.
In discussing these losses with a beautifully wise lady friend, she said very simply, turn lemons into lemonade. Yes, of course. The Celestial Wheel has been so focused upon predicting the path of the Millennium Contraction's harms, that the good which can result has not been recognized, nor properly acknowledged.
The lesson here can be understood via Saturn's main deity, Lord Shiva -- the destroyer and the creator. Shiva destroys that which is no longer necessary to make room for the new. In all three cases, individuals experienced Saturn/Shiva losses which then enabled gains that truly outweighed the losses for long term benefit. This is what the Millennium Contraction can be for many, if not for everyone. Homes and jobs are lost, major lifestyle reductions are forced upon us, but these can result in better and more sustainable lives. Love, for ourselves, and for others, is a key ingredient here.
For too long has America fomented, divisiveness, fear, greed and hate. Those negatives brought no real success, nor satisfaction. The results are now all to obvious.
Think about it. Start looking at the lemons in your life as opportunities for positive change. There's no way to dodge the Millennium Contraction, but there are paths ahead for everyone to benefit from it. And even if one problem follows yet another failure, don't give up hope. Americans are quirky and sometimes paranoid, but two other threads in the America's national fabric are opportunities and an unfailing optimism. Just make sure your new path ahead is realistic and achievable -- and truly departs from the pattern of greed and selfishness that permeated the Second Gilded Age.
Vedic Astrology can help by shining light upon your karmic path ahead -- so you that can anticipate challenges and take advantage of opportunities. If you need help, ask for it. This astrologer doesn't read minds, only charts, foretelling future karmas that to guide us to personal maturity and fulfillment, Vedic Predictive Astrology If we pay attention the stars, we can dance with them.
The straight story can be found in the June 17 issue of Scientific American,
Nasa's website has more technical information, including the exact date and time of October 9 at 7:30 AM EDT.
This last is interesting because the September 7 In-depth Forecast, A Stormy Fall, explained that on October 9, Mars rams into Ketu,
Our Strange Planet. In just a few months, NASA will EXPLODE a TWO TON bomb on the Moon. They claim this is in the interest of paving the way for colonization, and "to find water." Now this is where the NASA nonsense piles up into an ugly heap, like bed sheet wrinkles on a bed made by a 4 year old.
Levi-tarot.co.uk Not only that, they are aiming for one of the poles of the Moon risking putting the Moon out of orbit or at the very least causing massive disruption in it's actions and functions down here on Earth. The Moon! An integral part of our Planet. The body which controls the ebb and flow of our Tidal System. Dr Strangelove has nothing on these mad entities. Bomb the Moon? They are going to cause a world wide catastrophe. What's more they are not sure of the results.
GlossyNews.com However the re-scheduling of the mission to next week has been exposed as a plan to deliberately have the bomb miss the Moon by miles, swing back towards earth and impact instead on downtown Tehran – targeting the offices of Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadashell instead.Examiner.com The planned October 9, 2009 bombing of the moon...is contrary to space law prohibiting environmental modification of celestial bodies. The NASA moon bombing, a component of the LCROSS mission, may also trigger conflict with known extraterrestrial civilizations on the moon as reported on the moon in witnessed statements by U.S. astronauts...
Let's see what happens. It will be interesting how the above predictions prove out -- not to mention how the above publications interpret the results.
The bell curve -- is instructive here. Below is an image of normal distribution. This is an example used to understand new products markets. 80 percent, or more, are in the middle. There are a few early adapters, and a similar minority of laggards. The U.S.'s edges of the bell curve are its mystical paranoia. (See the August 7, 2008 Celestial Wheel, U.S. Psychology.)
Both are conspiracy theorists, though, being on opposite ends of the bell curve, their fears are unique to each group. We see on the far right, for example, those who believe health care reform is a plot to kill old people, the deathers. On the far left -- the above authors and their readers believe the government is out to get us for entirely different reasons.
As we continue through the Millennium Contraction, our own personal voyages of transformation will require clear and objective understanding. Use metaphysical (spiritual) information with careful discernment. Wishful thinking and retreat into fear-based fantasies are just transparent excuses to deny responsibility for ones situation and actions. These harm by dimming and distorting the clear light of truth.
