We are rapidly approaching a decisive make it or break it point in world history. For the last 7 years Uranus has been in Pisces. Over that time period there has been a growing tension in the collective unconscious of humanity. There is a pervasive awareness that the economic-political-industrial society humanity lives in and depends upon is broken beyond repair and will soon destroy itself. Who ever and whatever survives that process will have to create a very new kind of society. Pisces belongs to the mutable signs and is conditioned by the experiences of the past. Saturn has been in Virgo (also a mutable sign) over the last 2 and ½ years and has been making a series of oppositions to Uranus in Pisces.
The first exact opposition of transiting Saturn opposition to Uranus took place November 4, 2008, coinciding with the fall of 2008 global economic crash. The established economic and political power structure (Saturn) had a head on collision with radical change (Uranus). The last of this remarkable series of 5 exact Saturn-Uranus oppositions takes place on July 26, 2010.
This last time however Saturn is 0 and ½ degrees of Libra and Uranus is at 0 and ½ degrees of Ares. Ares and Libra are cardinal signs. Cardinal signs are focused on the here and now and are associated with crisis situations that require immediate decisive action. Cancer and Capricorn are also cardinal signs.
From May of 2010 through January of 2011 transiting Jupiter and Uranus are more or less conjunct while straddling the Pisces Ares cusp, where the zodiac ends and begins. This is highly significant. It indicates the mobilization into action on a huge scale of an underlying mass discontent. The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction also shows the potential for a global spiritual awakening to reach critical mass. This can be seen in the fact that the controlled main stream media is being increasingly discredited while at the same time alternative media is growing by leaps and bounds.

In this article I have chosen to do an analysis of the horoscope of the United States in terms of economic, political and social trends. There is not universal agreement among astrologers as to what is the most valid chart for the United States. Some charts use the adoption of the articles of confederation, or the ratification of the Constitution, and other important historic dates as charts for the USA. It is not that only one of these charts can be correct and that all the others must be invalid. They each provide significant time slices or snapshots of the unfolding of American history from which future developments can be extrapolated. This applies to people as well if we consider the time of conception and the horoscope of the moment of death as also being important to the ongoing spiritual entity.
The most commonly used chart for the USA is the July 4, 1776 Gemini rising chart. This chart is calculated for 2:13 AM at Philadelphia Pennsylvania on July 4, 1776. This chart has 7 degrees of Gemini rising and 13 degrees of Aquarius on the midheaven. In my experience this chart definitely works in describing the US as a country and in providing accurate predictions and plausible astrological explanations of US history. This is the chart I will be using for the purposes of this report and in this report I will refer to it simply as the US horoscope or chart. The US horoscope does provide important information as to general economic and political conditions and trends.

Part One – How the current economic crisis came about.
In the opinion of the vast majority of world economic experts and leaders the global economy is sliding into a crisis that could exceed even the 1929 crash and ensuing great depression of the 1930s. For the average citizen this is already to painfully obvious. If the world is to avoid catastrophic global economic meltdown and all the social-political chaos that means, then it is necessary do things in a totally different way than what created this havoc.
The Debt System
The past and current economic system is based on charging interest for lending money. That is what banks and financial institutions do. But first of all what is money and where does it come from. Money is said to be a medium of exchange. What does that mean? It means that there is a universal social agreement that currency represents the value of natural resources and the products of human labor. This universal social agreement is enforced by cultural, economic, political, legal, and military institutions. In other words money is in age old institutionalized cultural habit.
In its proper use money serves a useful function. It speeds up the exchange of goods and services by allowing people to trade goods and services in a faster more fluid way than one to one barter allows.
Who creates currency? Money is issued by some cultural institution usually a national government or a central bank. That institution and the people who control it therefore control the money supply. To whom is that money issuing institution accountable? This is the most fundamental question of social justice. If the money issuing and lending institutions are accountable to the general human population that is to the people in an enforceable way, then social harmony and functional civilization is possible. If money issuing and money lending is controlled by a small self serving minority, regardless of what it calls itself, then that controlling minority becomes parasitical on the body politic and a culturally pathological condition sets in. When parasites get out of control they kill the host and themselves. In socioeconomic terms this means the debasement of culture and the destruction of civilization through poverty, environmental degradation, slavery, and war.

This article is intended to be a summery of some important basic principles and methods of astrology. It is not my purpose here to elucidate every combination of astrological factors but rather to point out basic principles and techniques and give a few examples. A thorough analysis of every combination would be subject matter for a book.
I like to call Astrology the original Holographic Science. As far back as any kind of civilization can be traced in any part of the world some form of astrology is found. Where astrology originally began is lost in the mists of time. I personally suspect that astrology was first brought to Earth by the extraterrestrial beings that originally genetically engineered the human species as we presently know ourselves and seeded human civilization on planet Earth. Virtually all-traditional cultures of the world have mythologies and ancient traditions, which speak of interaction with and intervention from advanced beings that came from the heavens. There are records and stories of the so-called UFO phenomena from every century of history and every part of the world.

Precession of the Equinoxes
The winter solstice of 2012 or December 20, 2012 is the end of the Mayan Calendar. According to my understanding it is also the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. At that time the winter solstice will align with the plane of the Milky Way galaxy to which our solar system belongs. I believe this date is important for other reasons as well, having to do with the Pleiades and the Star Regales changing signs in the tropical zodiac due to the precession of the equinoxes.
To understand how this works it is first necessary to understand what precession of the equinoxes is and what causes it. First of all there are two zodiacs used in astrology. They are the tropical zodiac and the sidereal zodiac. Both zodiacs are arranged along the ecliptic which is the plane in space defined by the Earths orbit around the Sun. The tropical zodiac which is primarily used in western astrology divides the ecliptic into 12 signs of 30 degrees each referenced to the equinoxes and solstices. The sidereal zodiac which is primarily used in eastern astrology is made up of actual constellations of stars that are arranged along the ecliptic. A little over 2000 years ago these two zodiacs perfectly lined up together and the signs of the same name occupied the same positions on the ecliptic. Since then they have been drifting apart due to precession of the equinoxes.

By Louis S. Acker
The Universe is manifested from a primal spiritual essence, which we can call the Void. The Void is beyond, or independent of time, space, form, and personality characteristics. That is to say it has no identifiable or particularized characteristics. The void is an essence, which has infinite or unlimited speed or velocity. Its entire existence is simultaneously present in every point in space. This is a higher order of omnipresence. It not like saying that water is present everywhere in the ocean. It is rather like saying the entire ocean is simultaneously present within each drop of the ocean. If something is so fast that it is here and everywhere else throughout infinite space and back again in zero time it is as good as though it had never left. Continue reading “New Paradymes in Physics”
