As many know, the biggest astrological organizations and websites based in the U.S. are led and made up of predominantly relatively well-off Caucasians with an unexamined “keywords” approach to astrology. The late depth psychologist, James Hillman co-wrote a 1992 book called WE’VE HAD 100 YEARS of PSYCHOTHERAPY --- AND THE WORLD IS GETTING WORSE. Perhaps you’ll agree with me that the world is infinitely worse since that “Monkey” year, 1992.

Meanwhile, we’ve had about a half a century of modern unimaginative hearsay astrology. The world is not only getting worse, but most modern astrologers couldn’t see it coming, or guide us through it. Past astrology predictions have hardly ever been fact-checked for accuracy, as American astrologers, like most ordinary Americans, tend to prefer to look forward, never looking back. Like the rest of America, astrologers, if they look at history at all, tend to embrace historical fictions that flatter well-off American Caucasians of old.

North American astrologers, if religious at all, tend to see astrology as separate from the spiritual, as if on the other side of a line of Buddhist prayer flags. Similarly, although Carl Jung told us that Soul is expressed and accessed through imagery, most modern astrologers ignore or downplay the rich imagery and mythology that is the origin and essence of astrology itself. Here’s a pop quiz: What is the mythological story of the sign and constellation Pisces?

It’s very easy to get conventional astrology at astrology conventions and with first page “Google” searches. If there is enough interest, even a minor interest, I’ll soon be sharing an email letter, ASTROLOGY MINORITY REPORT. In such a report, expect to read an unfortunately iconoclastic look at some modern astrological assumptions, undermined by the real truth of American history, and/or contemporary reality. First up: Hidden Truth: Jupiter, Uranus and “Manifest Destiny”

FOLLOWING OUR OWN STAR: LASTING EFFECTS of EPHINANY ECLIPSE 2019

The latest ASTROLOGY’S MINORITY REPORT from DALE O’BRIEN

Part Two of Two: and including updates to Part One

If you recently read Part One, skip down for Part One and a half and Part Two, or, you can find Part One below.

Briefly: Part One, includes information about The recent Solar Eclipse coinciding in much of the world with the Epiphany, most timely-relevant geographic regions outside of the U.S.A., especially Europe and the probable impact on the value of the Euro….

       As mentioned in Part One: The ordinary way of things annually (Solar cycle-determined) is ordinarily reassuring. However, when a Solar eclipse occurs, even a partial one like this one, the ordinary way of things is “eclipsed.” Darkness, even partial darkness is disconcerting. Have you felt uneasy lately? If so, that’s likely to be intuitive astrological attunement, not some paranoia to suppress with distraction or medication.
A Partial Solar Eclipse looks like someone took a bite out of the Sun. It can feel like something is gnawing at one’s soul, something hard to articulate.
 
       “What’s up” in the celestial sky with this eclipse? “What’s comin’ down?” Answer: lots, as in “heavy” stuff comin’down. The recent partial Solar Eclipse occurred very close to the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto. Different planets correspond to particular metals. Saturn’s metal is lead, the heaviest element until the discovery (and human-made) radioactive element Plutonium. Note that lead is used to try to contain plutonium from radiating poisonous death.  Pluto was/is the mythological Lord of Death. So, symbolically we have entered into probably the “heaviest” time ever in our lifetime, perhaps even in the history of modern humanity.

       By declination with this eclipse Sun, Moon, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter are parallel to one another, in the year before a similar alignment by stellium in 2020. The visible eclipse may be over, but back to normal now is not in the astrological forecast for any time soon.

       Within less than 24 hours of that eclipse, planet Uranus seemingly stood still, that particular planet is demanding our attention, astrologically speaking and in regard to Astro*Carto*Graphy.

       Astrologically, this includes paying particular attention to the specific Zodiacal degree of  Uranus “taking a stand.” There are 360 degree-images called “Sabian Symbols.” Lynda Hill, in her essential book, The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees of Wisdom, has written as part of  “The Caution” for us now regarding this degree: (Beware) “…. Getting lost in abstractions. Rejecting what’s obvious on an intuitive level in favor of more intellectual answers…. Not listening to obvious messages.”

       This important advice is relevant in at least two ways. First, most modern “Western” astrologers speak of outer planets, including Uranus, in abstractions. Abstract clichés for astrological Uranus could be perhaps innocuous, maybe even helpful in other contexts, but what are they missing now? Second, what intuition wants to rebel against is “business as usual” which is that this not environmentally sustainable and that which increases an obscene income gap, with fewer far richer and tremendously more and worse off poor, even in the wealthiest of nations.

Part 1 and Half - way ‘round the World: UPDATES!

       UPDATE # 2: As mentioned in Part One, the Partial Solar Eclipse was visible in much of China. The subsequent Uranus Station is very significant. On January 11th it was announced by China their intent to launch in 2020 a massive space station capable of taking out any/all satellite communications. Uranus is associated with technology. Uranus’ Sabian Symbol: “The Music of the Spheres.” English translation of China’s name for the space station: “The Harmony of the Heavens.” The phrases sound nice, but Uranus/Prometheus is Thief. In this case, the “music” is discordant and “the harmony” should unfortunately be read as “HARMony” (or for Wall Street, read “HARM money.”)  

UPDATE # 2: Also as mentioned in Part One, for the recent eclipse, Uranus A*C*G lines command attention now. In Part One much was written related to Europe’s Uranus A*C*G line, but India was also mentioned. My A*C*G interpretation for this particular Uranus A*C*G line is “Discontent Beneath the Wheel.” Note that in India an estimated 150 million people (about 11% of their population) plan to go on strike on January 15th 2019. That’s about 46% of the population of the USA. An 11% strike in the U.S. would be like about everybody of working age in California and Washington State not going to work. (As if that would ever happen.) Hilary Clinton won’t likely be there for the strike, although she recently went to India for the wedding of the richest man in India. She seems to like to go to very rich men’s weddings, like going to Trump’s wedding years ago.

Part 2 of 2: U.S.-centric Perspective Relative to Recent Eclipse

       Uranus Station: In the Astrocartography of the recent eclipse, there are four most powerful possible dramatic insistent stances: Taking a stand AGAINST (Europe, e.g. --- see Part One); IDENTIFICATION with/as Prometheus (North island of New Zeland); PROMETHEUS in TARTURUS (India); PROMETHEUS thieving in OLYMPUS (see USA, below).

       In France, as mentioned in part one, the eclipse-related “yellow jackets” demonstrators are not simply pro- or anti- “left” or “right.” What they have in common is a rejection of the political and economic state of things for themselves. Regardless of ideology, if any, they have donned their safety vests as if to say “Don’t throw us under your driverless bus.”

       The astrology and Astrocartograpy tells us where and how this chapter of time begins, but does not tell us whether and how things do or do not work out.This uncertainty is the case for all of the various countries in dynamic action now, those mentioned previously and the very big story of the U.S.A. in at least the first half of 2019.

GRAND THEFT: GOVERNMENT

Stealing Fire by Firing the Government: The Art of the Steal

       Years ago Rick Tarnas wrote brilliantly (if incompletely) about astrological Uranus as Prometheus. Titan Prometheus stole fire from the Mount Olympus and brought it to humans, the archetypal beginning of seemingly unending (linear) human progress. Most astrologers don’t think of or else ignore the THIEF dimension of Uranus.* At eclipse time, Uranus appeared as overhead around the 100th degree of West longitude, that is Uranus/Prometheus the THIEF in the Highest Place. (This A*C*G line is essentially a NAFTA line, but for the sake of brevity and an unprecedented U.S. story of great concern, I have no comment here about Canada or Mexico.)

The DIVIDED STATE of AMERICA

PROPHETIC POEM from 100 years ago:

From W.B. Yeats’ poem, “Second Coming” written in 1919:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre      
The falcon cannot hear the falconer; [ a military drone?]
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold,
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loose, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
                                   
…. a vast image…troubles my sight:…
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the Sun,
Is moving its slow thighs…
The darkness drops again...
And what rough beast slouches…

(“lion body” Trump: Trump’s Rising sign (physical self-awareness, physical appearance) is LEO, the Lion. He is vain about his “mane” (his hair) and like most felines, he doesn’t like to get rained on, even for the 100th anniversary of the end of WW I.)  

            “The center cannot hold” as the country is polarized for or against Trump.One poll has 56% opposing him vs. 44% Trump’s chumps. As in the 2016 election, the majority looses.

Scene of the Crime: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, D.C.

Partial Eclipse, “Partial” Government Shutdown

            The Sabian Symbol for the moment of Winter Solstice and about 24 hours thereafter is “An Indian Chief Claims Recognition and Power from the Assembled Tribe.” (One descriptor of the U.S. president is “Commander in CHIEF.”) Seven hours after Winter Solstice 2018 and about a fortnight before the Solar Eclipse, Trump “partially” shut down the federal government indefinitely, with about 800,000 federal employees expected to work without pay. We cannot say that this amounts to slavery, as slaves were fed, clothed and housed, even if inadequately so. This is grand theft, government hijacking. Meanwhile, corrupt capitalism and environmental exploitation rule supreme throughout much of the U.S., at least for now. (See below).

            Highly elevated Uranus/Prometheus the Thief is triumphant and apparently stationary at eclipse time, indicating that the one in power here is not at all quick to come down or to back down. Even if/when Trump might end the shutdown, he has threatened to declare a “national emergency.” Were he to do so, by law, among other things, he can shut down electronic communication and/or freeze bank accounts (per expert NYU’s Elizabeth Goiten, writing in a recent ATLANTIC article). This and other law, interpreted by and initiated by Trump, some experts have written, could be used to approximate or actually initiate martial law.

            Almost half of those Republican Congress people and Senators who are firmly behind Trump have spoken of “postponing” the 2020 presidential elections purportedly because of purported “voter fraud.” Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has for some time expressed deep concern that Trump may be the last American President.
 

The Great Divide: The 100th Parallel

            The most significant feature of the U.S. Astro*Carto*Graphy of this particular eclipse features the 100th parallel of longitude. Traditionally this is the only featured degree of U.S. longitude. One reason for this fixation was that this approximate parallel was the boundary between the green East and the arid West (although the green line is now further east of there now, coinciding with climate change). U.S. Americans divide themselves in various ways, but one way has been in terms of  “out West” and “back East”, with 100 degrees West longitude as the arbitrary dividing line.

            The Solar Eclipse coincided in the U.S. with the evening of January 5. 2019. On January 10, President Trump went to another place of division (and a divisive issue politically), the U.S. – Mexico border. In theory he could have gone to that border at any longitude, from about 97 degrees to 117 degrees. He (astrocartographically appropriately) chose to go to about 98 and 1/3 degree of longitude --- close to 100.

            The only place in the U.S. where any A*C*G line crosses this 100th parallel line A*C*G line is just barely on the U.S. side at the U.S.’ other border, with Canada. All this combined seems to imply a dramatic picture of the U.S. now under Trump. It is as if Trump choosing to speak for The USA is emphasizing that who “we” are is defined by who “we” are not --- negatively definitive, adversarial, and contrary. An emphatic divisiveness and controversy splits the U.S. internally and internationally, with Trump our inflexible “Divider –in-Chief.”

    The Recent Eclipse Astrological Chart Shows the U.S. “TRUMPed” Yet Again.

         So much for the map of the 48 contiguous states, now onto the relevant astrological chart for the U.S.
in relation to this eclipse aftermath. At the time of the eclipse, of the 360 degrees possible to orient the U.S. in relation to this time, for the D.C. based U.S. eclipse chart, we get a point of orientation practically exactly the same to the birth chart of Donald Trump. This means that the country’s story is now Trump’s story, giving us no choice but to be caught up in his sense of reality (or unreality.) (See also below for Lunar Eclipse of just minutes into January 21, 2019.)

            One highlight (or low light) of this eclipse time (lasting at least months) beginning between January 6th and January 20th was/is likely to include at least one serious, organized “prime time” brief structured talk. At 9 pm EST on January 8th he gave a televised speech about (what else?) his reasons demanding Democrats to approve his multi-billion dollar border barrier.

WHAT WAS HIDDEN MUST SURELY COME TO LIGHT

           Another spotlight (like in a prison yard) is likely to be on one or more of his children being looked at in the serious light of legality. Three of his older children are astrologically suspect. Various Trump family members dubious involvement in Trump’s charity has already been exposed, at least partially. Don Jr.’s infamous Trump Tower meeting is prime for exposure.

            The Sabian Symbol for this eclipse is boys and girls in gymnasium suits. Because both genders are involved, and plural for both genders, Eric, Ivanka and Don Jr. are viable targets of attention, or even the seldom seen Tiffany Trump. Not that Eric, Ivanka and Don Jr. have recently been investigated for various potential legal improprieties. Saturn transits are involved when legal matters are in the forefront.

  • ERIC: born January 6th 1984 --- his Sun was/is eclipsed; transiting Saturn will align with his Sun this year. He is, in essence, on astrological probation for a year.
  • IVANKA: eclipse squared her natal Saturn; transiting Saturn squares her natal Saturn this year.
  • DON JR. (thinks refugees should be literally treated like dogs) Saturn has been transiting near his Sun; Saturn squares his Pluto this year.

Planets Saturn and Pluto conjoined with the eclipse could indicate collusion among these siblings, even perhaps Ivanka’s husband, Jared.

  • JARED KUSHNER has significant transits of Saturn and Pluto this year.
  • TIFFANY: eclipse squared her M.C.; transiting Saturn conjoins her first house Uranus and Neptune conjunction this year
  • DONALD J. TRUMP: eclipse squares Chiron and is retrograde Jupiter, both in Libra, related to issues of equality. Transiting Saturn squares these two this year.

ECLIPSES COME IN PAIRS, and the Second One is Not “Peachy Dory” for Trump.

       Only minutes into “Moon day” January 21st, EST, just after the two-year anniversary of Trump’s inaugural ball, there will be a “Super Moon” Total Lunar Eclipse visible throughout most of North America. The Sabian Symbol for this eclipse will be: “Under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man’s head.” This eclipse is likely to feel like overwhelming lunacy to him. This occurs on Sunday night, and in the privacy of his bedroom, unless in an institution such as a hospital or mental institution. Since Trump is known for sleeping little and “tweeting” at night, his emotional overwhelm may not be contained, as it best should be.  
           
           Solar Eclipses: Significant Endings and BeginningsEclipses historically have sometimes corresponded to the end of the reign of one monarch, replaced by a new one. However, in my astrological opinion based on eclipse analysis, we are unfortunately likely to have a president who is simply “out of it” but not out of office, at least for now.

LOOKS LIKE HARD TIMES FOR CALIFORNIA

Although California’s chart has been enormously stressed, seemingly worse so every year, 2019 might just be worse yet. Added to this, the eclipse Astro*Carto*Graphy indicates that Trump’s villain-ization of California, especially of the fire-devastated Paradise area. Between eclipses Trump directed FEMA to provide no aid to Californians victimized by the fire.

         It seems like the governors of Oregon and Washington and to a lesser extent California could successfully find ways to be relatively environmentally responsible despite Trump’s administration hostility toward the environment and these “Blue” states.

WALL ST. and the U.S. Economy

        I am neither a financial expert nor a financial astrologer. However, from the relative Astro*Carto*Graphy of the eclipse, compared to the Euro, it looks to me like the Wall Street  economy will be doing better, if only by comparison.

        On the war-machine and environmentally destructive side, military-related industries in the NorthWest, like Boeing, look to continue to do well, as do non-sustainable energy exploitation from Texas to the Dakotas. Everything looks worse and worse for the environment and much of humanity, but the comparative few
don’t care.

            Despite Trump’s tariffs devastating economic impact on Midwest farmers, it looks like they’ll of course not like it, but will remain loyal to Trump anyway.   

        We’ve just touched the surface of some few probabilities and possibilities related to this eclipse. Once the actual eclipse is “over”, much will be revealed, perhaps revelations expected, but perhaps revelations otherwise. Will the gift of gold spike out of purchase range? Will more people speak up, frankly-incensed? Will myrrh (or mirth) embalm the dying corpse of international capitalism? Regardless, revelations by definition are relevant. Truth can be revealed; what was hidden can come into the light.
        
         Capricorn knowledge and wisdom shows us that life is first and foremost about survival in a material world. Materiality isn’t all that there is to life, but lfe as we know it is embodied. Soul only exists where spirit is embodied. No matter our worldly challenges, individually or as a people, like the Epiphany’s three astrologers, we should celebrate Spirit’s incarnation into matter, no matter what!


NOTE: Certain particular individuals, certain particular countries, etc. are seemingly more impacted by certain eclipses. For instance, someone born on or near, or some major organization started on or near January 5th or 6th is likely to have some radical change. How personally relevant might this eclipse be for you? If so, how so? Consult an astrologer, if you can, if you are not sure.

PART 1 of 2

 

FOLLOWING OUR OWN STAR: LASTING EFFECTS of EPHINANY ECLIPSE 2019

The latest ASTROLOGY’S MINORITY REPORT from DALE O’BRIEN

Part One of Two: Outside the U.S.A.

Most of us in the “Western World” did not under-look the partial Solar Eclipse of Epiphany 2019. However, we should not overlook its remarkable relevance as we move into 2019. The synchronous dynamics of eclipses build up beforehand, culminate in dramatic spectacle, but resonate for at least months thereafter.

I almost overlooked this important phenomenon, but I had “an epiphany.” This came to me on the most appropriate day of the year for such, the traditional “Christian” celebration, January 6, “The Epiphany.” This day in 2019 was also when planet Uranus’ retrograde dramatically ended. The legend of The Epiphany is the story of the visitation of the recently born Christ child by three astrologers, or astrologer-kings, who supposedly followed “a star” to find a newborn king. They brought three gifts appropriate for a king: gold, the royal metal, frankincense, used for spiritual and medicinal purposes, and myrrh, for anointing and embalming the king shortly after birth and just after death.

The legendary three astrologers were sometimes depicted as wearing soft floppy felt Phrygian Caps. It is written that the lining of each cap was lined with stars, so that day or night the astrologer had the night sky “on his mind.”* Ancient Rome’s freed s;laves wore similar caps. In their spirit of liberation, French activists sported red versions of the same, as did “Marianne”, the symbolic spirit of France, famously seen in Delacroix’s painting.

(Speaking of “Marianne” and her red head-covering, see below.)

The ordinary way of things annually (Solar cycle-determined) is ordinarily reassuring. However, when a Solar eclipse occurs, even a partial one, the ordinary way of things is “eclipsed.” Darkness, even partial darkness, is disconcerting. Epiphany is the twelfth day of Christmas. An eclipse on this day breaks the usual “holidays over, back to normal, back to work tomorrow” expectation. Hmm. Have you felt uneasy lately? If so, that’s likely to be intuitive astrological attunement, not some paranoia to suppress with distraction or medication.

So, “What’s up” in the celestial sky with this eclipse? “What’s comin’ down?” Answer: lots. One place to look is where the eclipse was visible: from parts of Asia to westernmost Alaska. This included from mainland China in line with Taiwan. China recently “sabre-rattled” possible war actions against Taiwan. That fits. What else?

When the partial Solar Eclipse occurred, around the world each planet (and such) appeared to be somewhere overhead, somewhere rising, somewhere setting, etc. As a Jim Lewis-Certified Astro*Carto*Graphy Interpreter, I know that the A*C*G world map of an eclipse can be very instructive, if one knows where to look. Since within less than 24 hours, planet Uranus seemingly stood still, that particular planet is demanding our attention, astrologically speaking and in regard to Astro*Carto*Graphy.

Astrologically, this includes paying particular attention to the specific Zodiacal degree of Uranus “taking a stand.” There are 360 degree-images called “Sabian Symbols.” Lynda Hill, in her essential book, The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees of Wisdom, has written as part of “The Caution” for us now regarding this degree: (Beware) “…. Getting lost in abstractions. Rejecting what’s obvious on an intuitive level in favor of more intellectual answers…. Not listening to obvious messages.”

This important advice is relevant in at least two ways. First, most modern “Western” astrologers speak of outer planets, including Uranus, in abstractions. Abstract clichés for astrological Uranus could be perhaps innocuous, maybe even helpful in other contexts, but what are they missing now? Second, what are the obvious messages demanding to be heard at a human level?

Just look at Uranus’ dramatic expressions around the globe as indicated in the A*C*G eclipse map. Some places where Uranus is prominent recently and eminently: New Zealand (north island); India; anywhere in North America anywhere even remotely close to around 100 degrees West Longitude; West Africa and much of Western Europe. With so many possibilities, where should we look?

The Sabian Symbol for the Solar Eclipse itself gives us our best clue. The image: “School grounds filled with boys and girls in gymnasium suits.” Such symbols are seldom meant to be taken literally, but rather intuitively, like dream imagery.” Of the geographic areas just mentioned, where are (predominantly) young people, male and female, seen in uniforms or the equivalent, covering the upper torso of the body (but not the arms) and down to the upper thighs? Answer: the “yellow vests” of France and some other E.U. nations. They have demanded attention, and they are not going away. Demonstrations in France have entered their second month. Uranus in the sky has taken a stance, and will not back down any time soon. Neither will the Yellow Jackets! Neither will the “Mariannes”!

Certain particular individuals, certain particular countries, etc. are seemingly more impacted by certain eclipses.* For instance, someone born on or near, or some major organization started on or near January 5th or 6th is likely to have some radical reorientation of her, his or its story.

Case in point: the Euro was first traded on stock exchanges on January 4th, 1999. (The Euro as currency was widely circulated starting 1/1/2002.) Partial Solar Eclipses look like someone or something took a bite out of the Sun, like a cookie that someone bit into. Expect the Euro to fare badly in relation to the dollar, etc.

Note that the yellow jackets are not merely Parisian young males acting out violently. Across France, and increasingly in other E.U. countries, ordinary people, male and female, young and old, left wing, right wing and even former centrists have been so economically hard-pressed that they’ve taken to streets of cities and villages. Pensions are at risk. Tax-funded “free” tuition is threatened. The financial system has caused dramatic (Fire sign) actions of discontent. Astrological abstractions and political clichés do not pay their bills! So they each took their yellow safety vests from the trunks of their cars, suited up and took to the streets. French citizens polled approved the yellow vests’ demonstrations by 70 to 80%!

Mythologically, Athena wore a helmet, carried a shield, and a full suit of armor, notably featuring her vest-like breastplate. Astrologically now, coinciding with the eclipse, Pallas Athena is currently in the sign of Libra, sign of the scales of justice and equality. The female “Mariannes” and yellow vest demonstrators have spoken of the need for non-violent demonstrations (in contrast to the sometimes violent and destructive males acting out the worst of Uranus in Aries). Further, they have tried to remind anyone who might listen that although there is widespread inequality, women are economically even worse off than men, in terms of lower pay, unpaid childcare, etc. If you are a woman in the U.S. who thought that gender pay inequality was merely a U.S. injustice, think again. It is, regretfully, a small unjust world after all, at least for now.

In London, just across the English Channel from the Uranus line, there is concurrently controversy about the UK’s Brexit crisis relative to the E.U. “Eng-l-land swings like a pendulum do….” Roger Miller sang melodiously and calmly in easier times. Now the pendulum swings dramatically and unpredictably. In? Out? Labor? Tory?

Solar Eclipses: Significant Endings and Beginnings

Eclipses historically have sometimes corresponded to the end of the reign of one monarch, replaced by a new one. In Western Europe, Angela Merkel plans to step down, Macron in France is disliked left and right, the U.K.’s Theresa May could be forced out. How many other nations will have new leaders? What will their
politics be?

HOW “HEAVY” IS IT?

The partial Solar Eclipse occurred very close to the midpoint of Saturn and Pluto.

Different planets correspond to particular metals. Saturn’s metal is lead, the heaviest element until the discovery (and human-made) radioactive element Plutonium. Note that lead is used to try to contain plutonium from radiating poisonous death. Pluto was/is the mythological Lord of Death. So, symbolically we have entered into probably the “heaviest” time ever in our lifetime, perhaps even in the history of modern humanity. By declination Sun, Moon, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter are parallel to one another, in the year before a similar alignment by stellium in 2020. Hold on to your gym shorts (or your yellow vest). The visible eclipse may be over, but back to normal now is not in the astrological forecast for any time soon.

We’ve just touched the surface of some few probabilities and possibilities related to this eclipse. Once eclipses are “over”, much will be revealed, perhaps revelations expected, but perhaps revelations otherwise. Will the gift of gold spike out of purchase range? Will more people speak frankly-incensed? Will myrrh (or mirth) embalm the dying corpse of international capitalism? Regardless, revelations by definition are relevant. Beware clinging to abstracted perceptions and theories, astrological, economic, etc.

Capricorn knowledge and wisdom shows us that life is first and foremost about survival in a material world. Materiality isn’t all that there is to life, but lfe as we know it is embodied. Soul only exists where spirit is embodied. No matter our worldly challenges, individually or as a people, like the Epiphany’s three astrologers, we should celebrate Spirit’s incarnation into matter, no matter what!
