The Plutocracy of Pluto in Capricorn 2010

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday said the United States would be ceded to plutocrats and oligarchs if Republicans win next month’s election, referring to the flood of pro-GOP corporate election spending.

Peasants for Plutocracy by Michael Dal Cerro

The word “plutocracy” is being heard more and more these days, as in this article quoting Nancy Pelosi.   It’s an interesting word as it contains the word “Pluto” which is all about power and control.  Merriam-Webster defines “plutocracy” as government by the wealthy, which reminds us that in Roman mythology Pluto represented an amalgam of the Greek gods Hades (the Underworld) and Plouton (wealth) for whom he was named.  In ancient times wealth had nothing to do with paper currency or funds held in online institutions: the wealthy collected pots of gold and silver and precious metals, all valuable items that were found under the earth, Pluto’s realm.

When Pluto entered Capricorn, the sign of structures such as government and banking institutions, many astrologers predicted the consolidation of power in some of those institutions, and the destruction and regeneration of others.  Pluto rules the process of destroying that which no longer serves us and regenerating something new in its place.  The United States is particularly prone to confuse wealth with power due to the presence of Pluto in the US chart second house of money and finance.

Oligarchy is defined as the consolidation of power into a small group that exercises this power through tyranny and servitude.  Certainly the growing influence of corporations (ruled by Capricorn) in the American political system lends credence to the idea that we are fast becoming a plutocracy.  However, the planetary alignments […]

The rebellion of Juan Williams

Juan Williams is a well-respected journalist who has been a commentator for NPR news since 1999 and on Fox News for the past several years.  Last week Williams was fired by NPR for saying that he was afraid of travelers in Muslim garb, a comment that has generated a great deal of subsequent controversy.

In early 2009 NPR executives requested that Fox News stop referring to Williams as an NPR correspondent after Williams made some unflattering remarks about Michelle Obama, and Williams now says that NPR has been looking for a reason since then to fire him.

Throughout his career Williams has resisted being pigeonholed in any particular ideology and he has been accused of taking a liberal slant on NPR and a more conservative one on Fox News.  This is a facet of his rebellious nature that we can clearly see in his astrological chart.  With the Sun in Aries (born April 10, 1954, time unknown) in an exact square to Uranus, the planet of rebellion and innovation, he is an independent and individualistic (Aries) fighter for the rights of others and true rebel (Uranus).  He can be evasive and difficult to pin down (Sun opposing Neptune) which makes it easy for him to slip in and out of philosophical arguments.

Mars (aggression) squares Mercury (communication) in his chart, and this planetary combination has been affected by the transit of Jupiter (confidence) and Uranus (rebellion) over the past two months.  This is a planetary cycle that inspires us to be more outspoken than usual and speak without thinking.

The whole question of whether Williams should have been fired by NPR is outside of the scope of this article.  Personally I think it was an impulsive move on the part […]

The Tea Party and the fall elections

astrology of the tea partyFrom an astrological viewpoint, the Tea Party movement in the United States is a product of the opposition between Saturn (the establishment) and Uranus (the rebel) that began in the fall of 2008 with the election of Barack Obama.  The Tea Party movement culminated with this summer’s planetary alignments that I’ve been calling the Cardinal Drama because so many planets (a total of seven in June and July) were in Cardinal signs.  Cardinal signs are the sign of action, and they tend to act first and think later.

The big political question has been whether the Tea Party movement, which seems a bit extreme to many Americans, will continue into the fall election cycle.   Most of the big wins by the Tea Party occurred during this summer’s cardinal alignments, where there was a tremendous force for change and realignment of the status quo as Jupiter and Uranus, the two liberation planets aligned and challenged Saturn, the planet of conservatism, and Pluto, the planet of death of one cycle and the rebirth of another.  We see this mirrored in slogans such as the one pictured here.

The Tea Party adherents are conservatives who feel that the GOP has strayed from conservative values and that the party needs to be destroyed and rebuilt (this is reflected by Pluto’s passage through Capricorn, where the structures of our society (Capricorn) are dying so that a rebirth can occur (Pluto)).  The September primaries occurred just as Pluto, which has been at a virtual standstill all month, changed direction and was therefore a planetary focal point.

The big question is whether the revolutionary fervor that began in 2009 and 2010 with the Saturn/Uranus opposition and continued all summer under […]

The Astrology of Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck birthchartGlenn Beck has emerged from a minor and cartoonish character of conservative and religious unrest to become a force to be reckoned with in the Republican party. Beginning with the Tea Party rallies last year, he has built a movement that culminated this weekend with a crowd of 100,000 people in Washington at the Lincoln Memorial, to restore America’s honor and return it to the ideals on which the United States was founded.

Beck talks a lot about the Bible in his speeches – about Moses and Jesus and the founding fathers. (Beck, a Mormon, seems fascinated with the idea that  the book of Deuteronomy in the Bible (in which the Ten Commandments are found) was  instrumental to the development of the ideals of the Founding Fathers to which we must return. Much of this is mythology, but it’s worth noting that Deuteronomy is one of the most violent and vindictive books in the Bible, which is no small feat. There are many threats against the enemies of the Israelites, but also against the Israelites themselves who disobey the Commandments. It’s safe to say that religion is crucial to Beck’s world view, and a return of America to the conservative religious values of the mid-twentieth century.

Glenn Beck (born February 10, 1964, Everett WA, time unknown) was born when the Sun was in Aquarius, the sign of the rational thinker with radical new ideas. But his Sun is in a triple conjunction that includes Saturn and Mars as well. The Mars influence energizes him but also provides frustration – it can be difficult to focus one’s energies. The Saturn influences puts the brakes on and creates blocks and disappointments, and also suggests a deep loneliness […]

Americans still don’t know who Obama is

I really haven’t wanted to write about President Obama, because I don’t want to stir up a hornet’s nest of controversy.  But I do find it striking that two years into his presidency, nearly 20% of Americans believe that he is a Muslim – more than the number who believed that he was a Muslim while he was running for president and the same number who admit to peeing in pools.  (Is this coincidence?  I think not!)

Reverend Franklin Graham fanned the flames recently when he appeared on Larry King and said  that Obama was born a Muslim because Obama’s father was a Muslim.

On the news tonight the dominant opinion seems to be that regardless of whether people think Obama is a Muslim or not, Americans don’t know who Obama is.  This is something that I attribute to the fact that he has Neptune, the planet of confusion and obfuscation, in a challenging square to his Sun.

During the election, anti-Obama people who were versed in astrology used this as a weapon to demonstrate that Obama was a liar.  Pro-Obama people were caught up in the Neptunian mist that permits us to hang all kinds of Neptunian projections on him.  (For more details see my article, Neptune, Obama and Me.)
