PLAN 10 FROM OUTER SPACE!
Dateline: Thursday October 13, 2005: Do you remember the Grade B sci-fi, horror flick (often touted as the worst movie ever made) called Plan 9 From Outer Space? Directed by a cross-dressing Ed Wood and starring Bela Lugosi, it has a couple of flying saucers hanging by strings and some very dead folks constantly coming back to life to haunt weary earthlings.
Well, with our economic, political, social, cultural, religious and security troubles rising rapidly in America (see my recent Top Stories on Red-Alert Mars Update, Hurricanes Rita and Katrina, and News Stories on Mars-NYSE-DJIA, Terrorism and President Bush), it feels like we are about to go BEYOND the perils and nightmares portrayed in the campy Plan 9 From Outer Space film classic. Therefore, I have entitled this feature as PLAN 10 FROM OUTER SPACE!
However, this article is more a list and experiment. I have already staked out my territory concerning the extreme problems facing our nation and the dire straits we are in financially and along so many other pathways into the future. The following 10 items are almost a 10-step timing-device – let’s say – offered by the astrological-zodiacal “powers that be” guiding us on invisible levels of being and consciousness. If we can tune into the hidden power, magic and expertise available during these potent alignments, celestial stations and major sky events, then perhaps we have a fighting chance to avoid serious crises coming down the road. Nevertheless, on a mass scale, the odds are huge that our population of nearly 300 million Americans will probably be on the ropes for many months (years?) to come because of economic-political-military “circumstances beyond our control” taking charge and putting us on the defensive.
There are 3 special charts at the close of this article that only include a couple of planetary bodies so you can conjure up in your mind's eye the key alignments I am discussing.
I invite you to e-mail me with your comments and ideas about what you think will happen during the dates/cycles that I am mentioning down below. I am NOT providing interpretation here as I am looking more for an interchange and soliciting your views.
PLAN 10 FROM OUTER SPACE!
(1) Mysterious Yod forms among Mars, the Sun and Pluto (Oct. 13-15). This activates 23 degrees of Taurus, Libra and Sagittarius. A Yod or Finger of God pattern is a triangle composed of 2 150-degree aspects and 1 60-degree aspect. This Yod triggers another type of triangle – called a Pythagorean triangle – that exists in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) chart from May 17, 1792. In that birthmap, Mercury at 23 degrees of Taurus squares Pluto at 23 degrees of Aquarius while Jupiter at 23 degrees of Libra makes a trine to Pluto and a 150-degree aspect to Mercury. It is the exact coming together of these two cosmic triangles that is zapping USA financial markets.
Note: While the Yod forms October 13-15, we also have the Sun moving 135 degrees to Uranus in the sky, Venus merging with Ceres and both squaring Uranus, Uranus 75 degrees to Mars, and the Mars/Uranus explosive midpoint of their stations from October 1 and November 15 is at 15 Aries-Libra in conjunction with America’s Saturn. Pluto’s current position at 22+ Sagittarius precisely squares the USA Neptune at 22+ Virgo from July 4, 1776 and this month’s as well as next month’s Pluto placement is at the Jupiter/Pluto midpoint for the NYSE.
(2) The Partial Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon of Monday October 17 strikes 24+ degrees of Libra and Aries. This is within 1 minute of arc of squaring America’s Mercury at 24+ Cancer and it is exactly igniting the president’s “power axis” – 4th and 10th house cusps or meridian axis. On the same date, the USA progressed Moon precisely conjuncts our nation’s Mercury – a lunar union that hasn’t occurred for 27 years. [Keep in mind that Mercury = trade, transportation, communication, information, the press, paper currency, investor attitudes and movement of indices (like the DJIA) either up or down. Mercury was precisely on the Ascendant when the first plane struck the World Trade Center at 8:46AM EDT on September 11, 2001 in Lower Manhattan not far from the NYSE historic building and site.]
(3) The Moon in Taurus conjuncts transiting Mars and the retrograde station point of the red planet from October 1.
(4) Neptune stations and turns direct at 14 degrees and 49 minutes of Aquarius on October 26. This station influences us several days before and after – as well as energizing this degree in the zodiac for many months. The 15th degree of Aquarius – like 15 Taurus, Leo and Scorpio – carries extra power. Dane Rudhyar referred to these middle degrees of the four fixed power signs as “Gates of the Avatar” wherein the energies pouring into the Earth and humanity from the cosmos at the equinoxes and solstices are concentrated and intensified.
(5) A T-Square triangle – composed of Sun opposing Mars with Neptune squaring both the solar light and red planet (all at 15 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus and Aquarius!) – comes into being Sunday November 6 and Monday November 7. The Sun-Mars part of this triangle is their first polarity in 2 years and occurs while Mars is at its closest distance to the Earth in 24 months.
(6) The Full Moon at 23+ Scorpio-Taurus occurs on Tuesday November 15 – exactly activating the Mars retrograde station from October 1 and within a couple of minutes of precisely conjuncting Mercury in the NYSE chart. Within 1 hour of the Full Moon, Uranus stops and makes a direct station at 7 Pisces. On Sunday November 13, Mercury stations and turns retrograde at 10+ Sagittarius on the Sun for the First Nuclear Chain Reaction of December 2, 1942 in Chicago, Illinois – the day that gave birth to the modern era of Atomic Energy. On Thursday November 18, Vesta -- the asteroid that rules over national safety and security, and investment archetypes and patterns (!) – makes a retrograde station at 23+ Cancer (exactly triggering the three planets in the NYSE Pythagorean triangle and the three celestial bodies in the Yod forming October 13-15). This Vesta station is also within 1 degree of America’s Mercury.
(7) Saturn makes a retrograde station at 11+ Leo on November 21. This is just past the president’s natal Mercury-Pluto union that is rising in his birthchart. Saturn has just crossed President George W. Bush’s rising degree (8 Leo) in September for the first time in 30 years since the years in the 1970s just before he married Laura and became a father. Saturn will cross his Ascendant and Mercury-Pluto union three times from the latter part of 2005 and into 2006. The USA came into being with Mercury and Pluto in the mirror reflection aspect of an opposition rather than the conjunction that exists in the president’s chart. The area around 11+ Leo-Aquarius is also the entire orbit of Neptune – also known as the Heliocentric Nodes of Neptune that move very slowly through the zodiac.
(8) Mars makes its direct station and turn forward on December 9 at 8+ Taurus. When the red planet reaches this stopping from the Earth’s vantage point, it will be within 1 degree of opposing Jupiter in Scorpio and within 3 degrees of squaring Saturn. In this situation, there is another T-Square triangle composed of Mars opposite Jupiter with Saturn squaring both the red planet and the largest planet in the solar system.
(9) Jupiter squares Saturn from 10+ Scorpio to 10+ Leo on December 17, 2005. This is the first of three Jupiter-Saturn quadratures – with the other two happening on June 22, 2006 (9+ Scorpio-Leo) and October 25, 2006 (at the now dreaded 23+ Scorpio-Leo degrees again!). Our current president is born during a Jupiter-Saturn waxing square cycle and now this cycle appears again. The December 17 occurrence exactly triggers his natal Pluto that is located at 10+ Leo (where Saturn will be focused). Laura Bush was born on November 4, 1946 – the exact date of a Jupiter-Saturn square at 8+ Scorpio-Leo that will be exactly activated by the Mars direct station of December 9! Plus – the coming trio of Jupiter-Saturn squares are all in the same signs that she has them in when she was born.
(10) Venus – the key planet connected to land, housing, property, material values, assets, resources, money and savings in the bank – stops for the first time in 18 months at 1+ Aquarius on Christmas Eve (December 24, 2005). This is right at the final height of the holiday buying season in the dead of winter in which home heating oil and natural gas prices will be at their highest rates ever. The Venus retrograde cycle lasts until February 3, 2006 and represents an opportunity for everyone (particularly women, small business owners, and all of us as consumers) to review, reflect and re-evaluate our budgets, financial affairs and monetary goals for 2006.
I have given you a few hints within the 10 sections above, but I want to steer clear of sharing all my opinions for the time being. The Cosmic Kalendar in our Daily Astrology Calendar section on the main webpage will offer suggestions about what may happen on the dates in question, but those calendar entries will merely skim the surface.
I look forward to receiving your e-mails about what you expect will unfold as we move through the next few months.
