  Next year, on the 28th of January 2008, Pluto will again enter the sign Capricorn.

The United States of American, born on the 4th of July 1776, came to life during the cycle when Pluto was last in Capricorn. Understanding the nature of the celestial currents at work and studying how they manifested in history can give us the jump on understanding what may be about to unfold in our immediate futures.

  Pluto in Capricorn is the financial root of power in the corporate/executive world.

Cap's the boss, the one in charge. With Pluto in Cap, executive's become plutocrats, dictatorial and tyrannical; forcing people to do their will under cold, unfeeling laws. In the zodiac, Capricorn squares Libra. The spirit of the law (Libra) is not what's pushing the issue here; Pluto (the planetary lord and therefore the focus and center of power) in Capricorn is. Pluto in Cap is also government taxation. While Pluto was in Capricorn last, Benjamin Franklin claimed...

  "The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War."

  In the previous weeks, we have seen what some of our most illustrious presidents
President Garfield

President James Garfield

have thought about the private banking system; of how Jefferson, Jackson and Lincoln stated so in no uncertain terms. Even Woodrow Wilson bemoaned the loss of executive power to the bankers later in his presidency.

Other presidents also shared in these views. Here's what James Madison thought of Pluto in Cap,

  "History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance."

  Who controls the purse strings, controls the country. Then there's the Dark Horse candidate, whom nobody expected to be president, coming to the office with his own ideas;

  "Whosoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce. And when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate."

  -James Garfield, a few weeks before his assassination.

President Theodore Roosevelt

  Another president not afraid to challenge Madison's money changers was Theodore Roosevelt. By his time, in the days prior to the Federal Reserve (1913) the system had a name and a face which Roosevelt was not afraid of identifying.

  "These International bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers... to club into submission or drive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government."

  We have seen evidence of this 'invisible government' or 'secretive government' before.

  Mythologicly, Pluto was said to wear the cap of invisibility. Pluto in Capricorn: the secret (Pluto), invisible (Pluto) government (Cap). These presidents fall in line with those we looked at last week, and over the previous weeks, who didn't think much of the bankers or their policies. If you don't like how your money is being used and abused, you're in good presidential company.

  As 2008 unfolds, the spirit of King George III will return as governmental controls are enforced. The laws put into place by 9/11 under the jurisdiction of homeland security will begin to be implemented in a much stricter fashion. If history is about to repeat, and the astrology suggests that it will, we are about to see another financial panic caused by those manipulating the interest rate in this country, stripping civil liberties (Libra) while demanding an oppressive tax burden. Because of the World Wide Web however, information will come out sooner than usual about how the common public is being fleeced, causing them to seriously consider whether or not we should call upon an old solution that successfully ferrets out the root of the problem.

  A new revolution.
