Aluminum Expose by NY Times Online
Dateline: Saturday July 20, 2013 at virtually the time of Mercury shifting from retrograde to direct.
I don’t go to The NY Times Online every day to see its lead stories, but I do visit there frequently. Today – only now 2 hours after Mercury has finally changed from reverse to direct at 13 degrees and 22 minutes of Cancer (within 4 minutes of arc of the USA Sun placement at 13 degrees and 18 minutes of Cancer from our nation’s birth on July 4, 1776) – there is a lead feature, running 5 pages, entitled “A Shuffle of Aluminum, but to Banks, Pure Gold” by David Kocieniewski. An exact time of 1:59PM EDT is listed with the story and I read only the first page. However, here are very brief quotations from the first three paragraph:
“MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. — Hundreds of millions of times a day, thirsty Americans open a can of soda, beer or juice. And every time they do it, they pay a fraction of a penny more because of a shrewd maneuver by Goldman Sachs and other financial players that ultimately costs consumers billions of dollars.
The story of how this works begins in 27 industrial warehouses in the Detroit area where Goldman stores customers’ aluminum. Each day, a fleet of trucks shuffles 1,500-pound bars of the metal among the warehouses. Two or three times a day, sometimes more, the drivers make the same circuits. They load in one warehouse. They unload in another. And then they do it again.
This industrial dance has been choreographed by Goldman to exploit pricing regulations set up by an overseas commodities exchange, an investigation by The New York Times has found. The back–and-forth lengthens the storage time. And that adds many millions a year to the coffers of Goldman, which owns the warehouses and charges rent to store the metal. It also increases prices paid by manufacturers and consumers across the country."
I have included two charts at the close of this article. One is for Noon on the day that The New-York Daily Times was founded/born on September 18, 1851 with Mercury retrograde. I have utilized this chart – along with America’s own birth on July 4, 1776 with Mercury retrograde – to discuss why Mercury retrograde is not necessarily bad, negative or a problem, that Mercury retrograde has enormous capacities for good via research, investigative work, delving into a wide variety of problems, correcting errors, mistakes, malfeasance, as well as opening doors to higher learning across the board.
Years ago, I did my own research to determine a more exact time for when the first edition of the original NY Times rolled off the presses, but at this moment, I don’t want to confuse the issue. The reason I am presenting this piece to our readership at Earth Aquarius News is to have you read the NY Times Online special feature if you can – via your computer, iPhone, Droid Phone, iPad, local library, and so on.
Ironically, the article refers to the Goldman Sachs shenanigans that raise the price of aluminum as taking place in warehouses near Detroit – which just became the largest American city to ever declare bankruptcy. And Detroit had been the main hub for our illustrious automobile industry – as well as General Motors – and it was our assembly line innovations and ingenuity with cars of all kinds that launched the U.S. into being a world power between the two World Wars of the 20th century.
Synchronistically, note that the atomic number of aluminum – the third most abundant element on Earth and the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust – is 13, and today’s station of Mercury is at 13+ degrees of Cancer (the USA Sun degree).
The NY Times – whether you enjoy their publication or not – was founded on a day of a Last Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (Sun in Virgo and Moon in Gemini) – the two key signs ruled by Mercury. The fate and destiny-oriented Lunar Nodal Orbit is activating the Heliocentric Nodes of Saturn (23+ Cancer-Capricorn) and America’s natal Mercury retrograde is just 1 degree away at 24+ Cancer. And when this most recent Mercury retrograde three-week cycle began on June 26, Mercury was precisely located at 23+ degrees of Cancer. Thus, the NY Times Online coming out with this very significant expose is completely, astrologically emerging in right timing. [The NY Times also has Venus at 22+ Virgo (exactly conjunct the USA Neptune) as well as a Saturn-Uranus union in early Taurus (exactly conjunct the eventual Chiron discovery placement at 3+ degrees of Taurus).]
Speaking of “right timing” – a phrase and concept that is completely connected with Saturn, as the ultimate ruling planet of Chronological Time on our planet – as this NY Times Online feature was published, Saturn in research-oriented, investigative Scorpio was exactly rising in the city of New York.
I leave the rest to you to follow, explore and surmise. Keep in mind that among the many rulerships of Mercury – a metal itself, like aluminum, when thinking of the element of Mercury – are business, trade, transport, and the movement and storage of objects that we value.
Note: Mercury remains direct until its next spin into reverse starting on October 21 at 19 degrees of Scorpio and lasting until November 10 at 3 degrees of Scorpio.
