>"Pisces" by Hiroko Sakai
Pisces practically invented schizophrenia, along with Gemini. But, then, don't all the signs have their polar opposites? Yet Pisces is unique, because she lives in the mystery of the subconscious, where the connections are erratic and hard to decipher. >MORE
"Pisces can reveal their agitation by roiling the emotions of others, and it is easy to engage and involve the unwary. Pisces' lovers become hopelessly dependent and possessive about Pisces, and try to domesticate and deconstruct the essence of Pisces’ emotions. Yet these are shrouded in an impenetrable Neptunian fog that erodes the barrier between the subconscious and the conscious. Everything is an illusion but for the moment. Love and music help Pisces feel joy, connection, lust, power, and, of course, sorrow. Pisces abandons itself in abandonment. Anyone watching Pisces run the gamut of emotions finds it overwhelming and excruciatingly intimate. The only connection that Pisces cans fully trust is love, and as that ethereal quality is only for the dreamers, then Pisces dreams on and on."
Water Water everywhere but not a drop to drink
This Piscean period calls for eviction or constriction. Here the otherwise forgiving Aquarius casts us adrift on the dead sea of despair. Without the Aquarius' bouncy energy to keep us afloat, we'll be swept away, hounded by the bureaucratic world; the landlord, the bank, the government. The state will finish what the capitalist began, which is the destruction of the middle class. >MORE

TRANSITS HAPPEN TO EVERYONE, EVERYDAY
Transits are the changes in your life you can't control, as supplied by the luminaries planets and asteroids that orbit or cycle around Earth, and your geographical location on it. The transiting orbs influence you through your relocated birth chart. The same effects felt by us all, will be felt by you a particular way, unique to you because of this connection. These celestial bodies can have a tremendous effect on you when they come close or make certain angles with your birth planets and geographical location (your rising sign).
You have power over yourself to adapt and resist them, but they ultimately have a cosmic timetable, in spite of your material agenda. It would be an advantage to be able to see them coming, and measure their power -- before they are felt.
No regime or government has ever survived defeat in war and deflation of the currency
For the past 50 years, Americans have been living the Capitalist dream, inflation. Our wealth, goods and power is increased--exaggerated, leveraged, as we artificially jack up the market value of worthless paper. This causes a trickle down effect, not of wealth, but of delusion. Workers accept the roller coaster ride and scramble for more money, more liquidity, more credit.
Inflation has worked (for us) for 75 years, as long as you consumed everything you could, the government printed more money, and war burned up surplus capital, and in the end, we impoverished the rest of the world. The true costs of capitalism were deferred, as long as they could inflate the value of everything the rich owned, which they did by leverage--betting on inflation lasting forever. >MORE
Crash and Crunch
"Abundance creates poverty, not prosperity" is the sad fact of our current situation in the worldwide capitalist system. 2015 will usher in the worst possible scenario for world peace, prosperity and stability. The falling oil prices portend a collapse of all the industrial economies, rather then offer cheap energy. The nature of profit makes an equitable distribution of wealth impossible. Like crabs in a bucket, the selfishness of nations will insure that they all perish together. The above graph shows in stark reality what is been massaged away by the media hype and the market manipulators. Capitalism hasn't worked since the 1970s. The growth since then has been fueled by debt and dollars which value has steadily declined, in spite of the recent strength of the dollar against even worse currencies.
Money is the lifeblood of capitalism, trade is the means of growth, and profit is the motive and the only triumph of capitalism. But profits are long gone. Corporations have turned to corruption and usury to spend their free money (provided by the Fed as "Quantitative Easing") to buy their own stocks so they can cash them in using insider information. Even they have no idea of the size of the debt bubble. Hedge funds have apothicated their capital from 400 trillion to over 700 trillion. Capitalists are eating each other and themselves to avoid bankruptcy. But it cannot be forestalled. The Banks are all insolvent, the government is living off of hidden sin taxes and extraction of wealth from the lower classes, impoverishing them.
And yet the out-of-control corporations cannot stop producing. Their production costs have shrunk, as have wages. Yet the capitalism is still bleeding equity, what they have today is worth less tomorrow. The supply of goods and services, has, according to their managed prices (supply-side economics") is larger than the demand, those who can afford them. This type of economic crisis, deflation, kills capitalism by slow death of a thousand knives. No corporation, no business, can afford to exist losing money. You can only borrow more to pay the bills for so long before a crash. Deflation causes constriction, loss, and brings disaster to the society it devours. Deflation is the Ebola of capitalism.
Dollars down, gold up?
Right now (March, 2015) the dollar is up in value, while gold is down. How can that happen? Dollars are probably worth only 40% of face value, maybe less. Yet gold is being appropriated by many governments like it was a lifeboat on the Titanic. YOU can't buy gold at the bargain rate, but the price of gold is being depressed by Chase bank and others, so they can loot the gold stock of smaller countries (Cyprus) and individuals who own gold coins, etc. When the day comes that oil prices, the basis of dollar-value, start to go down to the actual spot-market value, the dollar with go the way of the Dodo bird.
