THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

September 11 - what comes to your mind when you read those two words? It’s not just a date! It was the day the earth stood still – and watched. It was the day when nineteen people changed the world; at least from the one we used to know. Your perception of the events may be very different, depending on where you live.

New Yorkers wish September 11 never happened. It was the blackest day in the city’s history. Iraqis wish it never happened too, even though they had no involvement. The protagonists mostly involved were Saudi Arabian nationals. Yet most nations – east and west - experienced serious ramifications via the actions of those nineteen hijackers.

Big brother instantly got a whole lot bigger. Religious intolerance multiplied. Although it was almost fifteen years ago, the problems that gave rise to September 11 are still being addressed. If we are to believe what governments advise, the threat of international terrorism has grown rather than diminished.

Far more lethal events – like WWI and WWII – ended with the hopes of building a better world. Yet burning questions from September 11 remain unanswered. But some things are moving. Last Tuesday the US Senate has unanimously cleared the way for the relatives of victims of September 11 to sue those responsible. The decision is creating some angst in Washington.

WASHINGTON'S WEDGE

It’s driving a diplomatic wedge between the United States and the country whose oil reserves helped the US move from the gold standard and allow the petrodollar to dominate global finance - Saudi Arabia. All of this comes at the time of a simultaneous Solar and Jupiter return upon the birth horoscope of Saudi Aramco, the company that binds the US economically and politically with Saudi royalty.

Money and morals shouldn’t be strange bedfellows – yet they so often are. When logic doesn’t add up, it’s usually because dollars do. The common phrase is every one has their price. Sometimes that price doesn’t only apply to individuals, but darkens the halls of government transparency. For years the public have been kept in the dark about some of those involved in the 911 attacks.

But that may change as Pluto, the planet of the dead, transits the base of the 08.42 am September 11 2001 New York horoscope. Probing Pluto is the irresistible force, the relentless investigator digging deep. Pluto, the source of the word plutocrat, also describes hidden power and influence through wealth.

Saturn is the planet of karmic justice. The horoscope of September 11 is now at its Saturn opposition point; a time of balancing the scales. The New Moon of June 4 2016 will fall right upon the Saturn position of the September 11 horoscope. Jupiter, the planet of judicial process will simultaneously square it. Coincidentally events are reaching a climax. Click here for the charts.

The United States Senate decision puts increasing pressure on the White House to reveal 28 censored pages of findings from the 911 Commission Report. Saudi Arabia, fearing legal backlash and frozen funds, has threatened to sell off $750 billion dollars of US Treasury Securities. That’s virtually the same amount as the GFC bailout package. That’s hardly likely.

Yet September 11 was always going to have financial fallout. It’s why the Trade Towers were made the primary target. It closed Wall St for five days. And seven years later, almost to the day, Lehman Bros also collapsed bringing the western financial system to its knees. Curiously that collapse happened right on the Saturn square of the September 11 chart. It’s not the only time that September has brought financial and political chaos.

SEPTEMBER 11 – THRU THE TIME TUNNEL

Way back on September 11 in 1720 (NS) an exceedingly rare event took place in the zodiac. So exceptional that you won’t find any record of it occurring, before or since. The Sun joined Mercury, Venus and Mars and Pluto, all forming a quintuple conjunction. The Sun, Mercury, Mars and Pluto were so close that they were gathered within a half-degree of each other.

The key to this is Pluto – the ancient Roman wealth ruler and also the planet of catastrophic meltdowns. Its companion planets of mercenary Mercury, valuable Venus and impulsive Mars all played their part. A similar union of the last three was one reason that I wrote and lectured that the last global recession would almost certainly begin from the first fortnight of September 2008. Something also happened in 1720 that left an indelible clue.

ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE

The 1700’s were the early days of multinationals, stock market investment and international trade. Capital was needed to finance ambitious business ventures west of the Atlantic. This was the era of the New World, when the meanings of exploration and exploitation were blurred by an over reaching lust for profit. Countries were building empires and individuals amassing fortunes.

At the head of the money tree, in France, was former Scottish gambler turned banker and financial adviser to the Crown – John Law. Exiled after killing a man in a duel, Law found his fame and fortune in the heart of Paris. In the fiscal form at least - he became the heart of Paris. He dealt in paper money and Law’s bank – Banque Royal – was the national bank of France.

By 1718 Law had acquired the Mississippi Company, with a monopoly on trade with Northern America and the West Indies. He had set up a fledgling colony in Louisiana. Parisian prisoners were among those set free to populate the new land. Law’s marketing exaggerations fueled enthusiastic investment. By 1720 the company’s stock price went through the roof. Little known - his new world was a crocodile infested swamp.

SNAIL MAIL

Information didn’t travel quite so fast in 1720. Unless it was the hop, step and jump across the English Channel, where stories of Law’s new world success had spread like the plague. English investors were hungry for a slice of the treasures of South America. The English South Sea Company agreed to service much of Britain’s rising debt in exchange for the trade monopoly there. And everyone it seems got in for the cut.

Shares in the South Sea Company rose, not by 100% but closer to 1000%, within the year of 1720. The sky seemed the limit. That is until dark clouds loomed and the rain of reality began to rapidly fall, washing entire fortunes down the drain. It was rumored that even the brilliant physicist Isaac Newton discovered the hard truth of his principle, ‘what goes up must come down’.

The crucial days of reckoning came on both sides of the channel and the South Sea Bubble burst by September 1720. John Laws Mississippi Bubble did the same. Across Europe faith in investment companies hit rock bottom. Law, disguised as a woman escaped France with his life, and little else.

The collapse occurred around the quintuple conjunction but also coincident with Saturn, the planet of earthy assurance, opposing shadowy Neptune. The same opposition also accompanied the sub-prime mortgage crisis from 2007. The Bush administration threw everything at it before the 2008 election. But along came September and a planetary union of Mercury, Venus and Mars. It wasn’t really a surprise – it hardly ever is. That’s one law that you can trust!

Aries or Aries Rising: Nothing was ever conceived without vision. That's not motivational spiel - it's fact. Life can get pretty boring repetitively circling the same goldfish bowl. Changing speed won't help either, you just get dizzier. This week's Full Moon is moving you toward alien territory on something. You're a first timer. But you also have beginner's luck. It's saying conceive a plan - envision what you want. It's a start and that's what's important now. The rest will naturally follow. To look at your own personal chart, organise a personal and/or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top 

Taurus or Taurus Rising: Get the feeling people haven’t been listening to your message lately? How many times do you have to ask? You’re sitting in the restaurant at the end of the universe and it seems that the waiter has forgotten about your table. You thought he was light years away. But he just had his back turned. Surprise – some things are starting to move from Monday. You mightn’t be able to make up for lost time, but you will make up for lost ground. The fix is on!.

Gemini or Gemini Rising: When a Full Moon falls opposite your sign you get the best view. You see something full on - exactly as it is. There are no hidden craters; no smoke and mirrors. It's enlightening, but you also have to be observant. The light is not coming from within - it's happening out there. You have to get involved, or reach out to someone to make it work. An insight into an important relationship might be all that you require. Your opportunities involve your associations.To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising: The big wide world can often make you feel like you’re one in a million, or just another number. When the latter happens, you have to adopt the squeaky wheel strategy. Be like a woodpecker knocking on the door. If nobody answers, hammer through it anyway. If you can’t do something alone, enlist some help. You’ll be amazed at how many people think the same way you do and will be ready to pitch in. And yes - it is also time to get those exercises happening. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising: Like the comic tune, ‘The Cat Came Back’, a problem won’t seem to go away. You wish you could get resolution. You’ve certainly done enough ruminating on which way you should go on this. Trouble is you’ve also got differing advice. That’s happens when the answer has to come from within. When Mercury is squaring your sign, it’s hard to be rational. Yet that’s exactly what you must be. It means seeing things in the cold light of day, which you can do far more easily this week.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: Some people have to go to court to see things from another’s point of view. That doesn’t happen when you can oversee the complete and bigger picture. Your ruling planet Mercury spotlights matters connected to life philosophy and belief. It’s about what you think is right. Fortunately, Mercury is in a favorable angle to your sign and your thoughts are on the money. Matters to do with legal affairs and cultural connections are starting to unravel. It can also spell better news concerning travel too. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Libra or Libra Rising: Financial statements, paperwork, taxation…all are necessary evils. You can’t be bothered with organizing a budget. You’d much rather be organizing dinner. But something about this weeks planetary alignment is screaming get your accounts in order. Birthdays at the start of the sign, around September 24, excel in the contest or at a sporting and athletic level. Even the regular couch potatoes should feel this added energy vibe.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Some people are great negotiators. They master the art of the deal. They seem to be able to get their message across without too much friction. They’re good listeners and can get to the heart of a problem easily, moving it toward a mutual compromise. Your discussions have not been in vain. It’s okay to pick up where you left off on any unfinished business. The lines of communication are clearing. If you haven't done it yet - its time to make the connection.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: When Full Moons illuminate your sign they can also light up your life, especially when attached to action packed Mars. And even if the red planet is going retro it’s still packing a punch. But there’s no need for you to throw them, even if you are feeling more impulsive than usual. The Moon will also be moving across responsible Saturn and both may tend to put you in the spotlight more than usual. Previous experience counts on something here. You’re not exactly reliving the past, but it’s lessons are coming in very handy right now. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: When a Full Moon looms in your house of the hidden, with blindsiding Mars, is it time to watch your back? Definitely do not volunteer to be the knife thrower's circus assistant. But you also don't need to get overly paranoid. Not everyone's out to get you. Some are asleep or have gone shopping instead. On a much more serious note, take a little extra time, use some forethought to prevent afterthoughts. De-escalate situations. It's really time to chill not jump at shadows. A baseless fear or anxiety can be your undoing. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: The good gamblers maxim is 'money lost, nothing lost - confidence lost, everything lost'. Life will always consist of taking chances. The one who hasn't rolled the dice - figuratively speaking - hasn't really lived. This week's Full Moon encourages your speculative nature. It's asking for a more creative approach and therein lies your solution. Follow your heart's lead on this one or play to your true talents. If something hasn't got that swing, then it simply isn't your thing. To look at your own future prospects astrologically for 2016 -2016, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: You know the phrase - the cheque is in the mail. But this time you can believe it. Something, involving important information, accreditation or correspondence may finally be coming through. The Full Moon spotlights your house of career and/or public involvement. Expect to wear some extra responsibility attached to this, especially if February born. If you're not so career orientated it may come via friends or family.
