Mundane Astrology

Mundane is defined as both dull or routine and “of this world”.  In astrology, the latter is emphasized, and “mundane astrology” is astrology applied to the world.  It is possible, for example, to create a “natal chart” for the birth of a nation, and thereafter begin to make predictions about the future of that nation.  The USSR, for example, began its existence under the sign of Scorpio, and during the passage of Pluto through Scorpio, the USSR had its dismemberment.  Pluto -- which is said to “rule” Scorpio -- is about inevitable Death and Rebirth, a description which accurately tells of Russia’s fortunes.

 Nostradamus often used Astrology to time the predictions of many of his prophecies.  The problem with Nostradamus has always been that he wrote his quatrains in such a manner as to make obvious interpretations of them difficult -- albeit not impossible.  Similarly, with the many astrological references in his prophecies, there is a degree of ambiguity as to the exact date -- i.e. this year, or 120 years from now?

 Perhaps one of the guaranteed, blue light specials is Mercury in Retrograde.  When the smallest planet and the one closest to the sun is in retrograde -- where it appears to be going in the opposite direction (a fact caused only by the relative motion of Mercury and the Earth with respect to the Sun) -- communications become fouled.  Contracts signed when Mercury is in retrograde often do not survive, or must be amended (or someone is very unhappy with the agreement) once Mercury turns direct again.  Communications, including computers, telephones, verbal and written messages, and so forth all struggle when Mercury is in retrograde.  Computers literally crash -- not to mention complete fax and telephone systems.  Inevitably what one person says, the other hears something else.

 The good news is that when Mercury is in Re-trograde, the re word is in.  Rework, replay, revisit, redesign, redo, regroup...  All of these are very appropriate (effective) for those periods of time.  It’s the initiation or starting something that runs into problems.  

Mercury goes Retrograde roughly three times a year, each time for roughly three and a half weeks.  In order to plan ahead, some periods of time for this event are:

March 29 - April 24, 2011   August 2 - August 27, 2011
November 23 - December 15, 2011   March 11 - April 5, 2012
July 14 - August 9, 2012   November 5 - 27, 2012 A.D. [*]

 [*] Time for a major regroup!

One of the more notorious astrological aspects, as applied to the world stage was the Saturn-Pluto opposition of 2001 and 2002 -- particularly the former.  Saturn is about the structure, stability, and presence of government and the establishment.  Pluto is the carnage and destruction that is applied to such structures by the unknown and hidden, undercover forces of Death and Rebirth.  The two planets made their first approach (one of three) just prior to 9-11-2001.  The collapse of the World Trade Towers (and the damage to the Pentagon) represented the Plutonic destruction of Saturnian structure on a dramatic scale.  Clearly, it was brought about by hidden, conspiratorial figures of the underworld, who were never really accurately identified.  The fact that there was not a repeat in the fall (when the second opposition occurred in November 2001), and the following spring (May 26, 2002), may be due more to actions to prevent a reoccurrence than to any lack in the astrology.

 Finally, there is the astrological implication of the US Presidential Inauguration.  Originally the dating of major events of the Republic was based on: July 4 (Independence Day), approximately November 4 (Election Day), and March 4 for the presidential inauguration.  The November day was varied slightly in that Tuesday (ruled by Mars’ assertiveness) needed to be election day for the average Joe who might not be available on a weekend.  The 4th day of these three months (exactly one-third of a year apart) represents a grand trine, one of the most delightful and beneficial aspects in astrology.  It was good news for the nation as a whole.  

Unfortunately, Franklin D. Roosevelt changed this and had his second inauguration on January 20 of the year after the election.  This followed, of course, the US Bankruptcy, and the general dissolution of the Republic known as the United States of America.  Not only were the American citizens sold down the river financially, but astrologically as well.  The change destroyed the grand trine, and resulted in angles between July 4 (or November 4) and January 20 of 164 (77) degrees -- angles which have no significance whatsoever.  It is noteworthy that the powers that be deemed it important to change the inauguration date.  Apparently they had more respect for astrology than one might have thought.  

Thomas Jefferson, an Aries, wrote in 1787, ‘I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.’”  After the Franklin Roosevelt era, when the Republic ceased to be -- and the Banksters took over, Jefferson’s words have an appealing ring to them.  Anarchy and Revolution are not quite the delightful pastimes of yesteryear, but they daily become more appealing.  But before we go there, why not work on Creating Reality of a better sort, and divorcing oneself from being affected by the

On the lighter side, auto insurance companies may be able to better judge their potential liabilities by Applying Astrology with respect to Sun signs.  But before we get there, we need to spend a bit of time on Geometry and Astrology and/or Science and Astrology.
