Hey hey it’s Saturday – Harry Connick Jr “blackface” incident.

Issues of interest, World Events No Comments »

     Much had been said about the television-event “Hey hey it’s Saturday” in Australia. If the reader is interested, here ’tis the Youtube version of it. Click here to view.

     Let me place racist commentary and emotional hype on this issue aside for a moment and look for some other issues which may bear resemblance or can be considered in this instant.

     I would like to know the reason why Mr. Harry Connick Jr. or other American people or American race commentators are taking time off their work to involve themselves in an event that happened in Australia with a vigor as if the event happened on their own soil? It seems to me, that even if the issue was racist according to American mind set, the reunion of ‘Hey hey it’s Saturday’ should be under consideration first from local ethnic point of view. After understanding the rules which run the country, then maybe there is a right to make comments, but not before that. I say this because maybe the simple mindedness is the cause of the misunderstanding. However if I was more negative in my view about the world, I would consider the option that American Culture only recognizes itself as a standard and only if it desires to rise to the occasion.

     The recent practice that America goes around the world and imposes its own kind of morality on nations it is a bit too much. Just start with the news that emanates from media corporations who report in the US of A that there are people who would like to kill the Black President of their own country. Mind you the story is not just a whisper but stated in the open and clearly to be understood. O.K. Knowing Mr Murdoch and his dislike for the President Obama, this could be a call to arm to those who are yet in doubt weather Obama is fit to be the president, but even this does not constitute racism because President Obama is black. We do not have a K.K.K. but America does. Healthy white American supremacist male is racist because he has the guilty mind of judging one person to be lesser quality because of his say so. Australia votes its politicians out of office and there is no mention of assassinating them just because Australia detests them.

     Why is it that when the Australian Aboriginal dance-group ( click here ) performed the Zorba dance on YouTube, they had an overwhelming rise in the number of invitations ( starting with the Greeks if I am correct ) to perform their dance. They had over 1 and a half million hits while the Hey hey YouTube had a meagre one hundred thousand. The leading man in the Yolngu dance group painted himself white, the same way the doctor in ‘Hey hey it’s Saturday’ did. The rest of the black fellas ( fellows ) were as themselves. Now if one may speculate about the reasons an indigenous person would paint himself white in this instance is that he wishes to identify with what he or she represents because when Aboriginal people dance, they mime the animal they dance. No racism here. The rest keeping their colour may speak about the very desire of their mob in the dance to accept and to participate.

     My point here is that just because a person appears with a black face, may not constitute racism. It takes a bit more than that. The test of racism is also the consideration of all the accoutrements which are involved in the act. Just looking at an Aboriginal person painted white does not constitute racism. Why is the simple mindedness of a foreign commentator  the judgment of America? Perhaps because the American view is so narrow that does not allow imperceptible differences which makes the Australian proud to have as a talent.

     Australian humour is defined by the ability to not take oneself seriously and reverse the meaning of things. What this means that if someone is short, his nickname will be big fella or if he is tall, his nick name will be Shorty. The film “Crocodile Dundee” see it here features the actor Paul Hogan with painted face in Aboriginal style ( at about the 30 second mark into the film and also at the 2:28 mark ).

     Why then Mr. Harry Connick Jr. failed to promote racist Australia and drew no surge of agreement from the Australian population and only some people in America gasped with false puritanism? There is no act, other than blackening faces, which proved to the simple minded American the idea of racism. The complex thinking Australians had taken the issue for what it was, an Australian humour about the past and transposed in the present.

     I am sorry that people did not depart from their kind heated Australian nature and tell Mr. Harry Connick Jr. where to get off. What Mr. Harry Connick Jr. saw on that day was a simple, maybe badly performed skit. But don’t forget, Red Faces segment is and ever was composed of bad humour, which takes the high ground in “Hey hey it’s Saturday” . There are hundreds of acts in that segment which would be judged so bad that they should not be shown outside ‘Red Faces.’ But that does not make racism stick. Racism requires a guilty mind. Those doctors who took time off to have fun would not even dream of the ‘guilty mind’ about their performance. Racism is not a fact. Racism is a state of mind and Mr Harry Connick Jr. has an American mind in Australia. Not enough to call him racist or calling me racist for evaluating that Mr Harry Connick Jr. maybe wrong in his evaluation in harmony with all the American commentators after the fact. Shame on you America for trying to dirty the Australian humour.

     What ( I think ) happened in Australia on the day when Mr. Harry Connick Jr. stood up is the shaming of all Americans about who they still are, the simple minded viewers of the colour on a white skin. The sickness which is brought forward in a book called “The Asian Mind Game,” only the white Anglo-Saxon population considered racism at the expression: “He is a China man.” The Chinese fellow is quite proud to be a man from China and be called China Man because that is exactly how it translates into English namely Tzung wuo rin ( Tzung wuo=China Rin=man ). Only the simple minded Anglo-Saxon culture that has a single-issue focal point at a complex story.

     Americans are still the people who resolve all conflicts with the gun, blowing up countries who’s people have nothing but sandals to walk on and able to belittle the might of all the American Army because their mind is free and not bonded to the Amerindian murders and business hypocrisy as we have seen recently. They do not follow the W. Bush dictum that all who defend their country from intruders are terrorists.

     My advice to Mr. Harry Connick Jr. is to apologize for his act to belittle another nation because that nation does not think like his kind does. In fact I do not know anyone who likes atrocious American sitcoms whose humour is closer to the gutter than the Australian mind is to racism. Yes I admit there are racists in Australia, but those who can laugh at themselves as the ‘Hey hey it’s Saturday” crew does I am afraid just proves that American humour is at a level with Neanderthal times ( if that is no insult to the Neanderthal people who we discovered were very gentle-kind of creatures and not at all as they are condemned in American humour. )

     So Mr. Harry Connick Jr. take your travel bags and learn about Australia’s way of thinking before you are revealed as an ill considered and manner lacking critic. Attack is not a truth. Truth must be proven. Calling a white fella with black face is not proof of racism. It is just a statement of fact. The statement of racism about Australian humour was a statement by a misguided white American.

The Gods Must Be Crazy (part 1) American Moral Impotency

Issues of interest, World Events No Comments »

Greetings to all because I just walked in from the cold. Remember the movie where the idea was put forward:”The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1963)?” I walked in from the cold because for some time this site was mistreated by an unparalleled bad American behaviour which, when someone encounters in everyday life will make people lift their eyes to the heavens and utter the famous words: “Only in America.”

Well, I was in the cold on the account of the American Sickness: an inability to understand that some things are just not done in other cultures or to other cultures and the inability to understand this simple point makes the American Nation disliked around the world. Especially in business one keeps their integrity because of the need for co-operation with differing people and life styles; you do not behave in a manner which places a mark or a sign on your back for all to see which reads: “Mongrel.” For most people, the word mongrel is not known or not used in polite or gentle company. But the real (fair dincum) character down-under in Australia does use it when a kangaroo court calls for such technical expression to make matters clear and I use it in this case for the same reason: there is no better or more fitting expression (God bless the kangaroo-court advocates’ soul) than mongrel to describe what happened to me.

The issue is that through a technical hitch, my website was not paid automatically because a reminder email; to advise for renewal payment was sent to an inactive email address. The law however states that one has a month grace after the payment if the renewal lapsed and till then the site is held in abeyance inactive.

To everybody’s surprise a new age breed of American Internet goon, who also acts as a registrar for site names used or allowed the name of my site to be used for their purposes. They have redirected the search engines to their site with some sick content. The name of this (my) site is under copyright protection in America and the rest of the world and they redirected to address of this site to a fictitious site to gain money (from ad cents) and benefited from the traffic arriving to the site and also had a link with the name of my site on display, abusing further my site other than using the banner name illegally. They made money while committed an illegal act called conversion in English speaking countries or as Google put it “… fraudulent activity suspicion.” “Conversion” is an act in a legal domain called “Torts” and refers to someone taking privilege with another person’s goods (property) in an unlawful manner.

The offender is identified in a Google search-engine with the following words: NuSeek.com – Site is down because of fraudulent activity suspicions.” Not only this site had converted the name of my site for their use but also exposed my site to be accused of fraudulent activity by using it in a manner it was not designed for nor had in the past acted that would attract the denigration of being fraudulent. If you look carefully on the left hand side (in the image below), the name of my site appears again as a link. When one clicked on it, the redirect was to some advertising sites for all kind of garbage.” The image below is not active link so it will not react if one clicks on it.

Not only that they used the name of my site but they also used the site’s good reputation and high rating for visitors so they can line their pocket with ill gained profit.

This what I mean when I maintain that “American Moral Impotency” is pervasive. Such lack of morality is used in the banking practices in America which is now bringing the whole world to its knees. The banks distribute the community dollar to the high flyer’s as wages rises.

So you may wonder where the word “impotency” comes in. Perhaps this word made no impact in meaning. Impotent people are unable to procreate. That is the curse of the United States of America. They are unable to recreate themselves in the world successfully. No real people would be willing to engage with minds that rest behind the mask denoted as AN AMERICAN. Not all but the ones I refer to as “an American.”

The sickness of smash grab it and run is what I am describing here and reminds me of o joke a Jewish solicitor told me. I forgot the joke, but I did not forget that he spoke of a firm of solicitors who had the Corporate name of “Smash, Grabbit & Runn.”

Hijack memory

So what is the moral and the point to this story other than venting personal displeasure with what happened? Perhaps it is good to remember the saying: “Don’t sleep with mongrels, you will have flees in the morning.”

The Gods Must Be Crazy (introduction)

Chinese Astrology, Empiric Medicine, HourglassWisdom, Metaphysics, Vedic Astrology, World Events No Comments »

I would like to apologise to anyone who is offended by this title. I acquired it from the movie called The Gods Must Be Crazy.

The short story of the movie: a Bushman of the Kalahari Desert, N!xau (played by Xi), found a coke bottle as he was having a walkabout in the dessert of the Kalahari. If you did not see the film, please use the YouTube link above to acquire an inkling of what the movie (part one) is about. A Coke bottle was chucked out the window of an aeroplane. N!xau thought, the Gods have sent it and therefore it must have some use. During the journey of the bottle, it becomes at first the centre of curiosity and interest in his community. Later it graduates to be the centre of evil and creator of conflicts.

I have chosen this title as a result of the world economic turmoil, the turmoil which is the social-tsunami we “had to have”. This monolithic wave was in the making since the late fifties. Most of my friends muttered under their breath decades ago: “this can’t go on without a disaster”.

When someone is in a railway tunnel, the light at the end of that tunnel is not always the light-of-day.

These are times when our human nature learns again, that young nations with young minds are really suckling babes in terms of culture. They are unable to say no to those things which a wise consideration will not touch. Having a national leader with a juvenile mind is augmenting insanity. He attained respect not because he is a competent leader of that nation but because the office he is holding makes him a pygmy with a machine gun. Such leaders are not the light-of-day at the end of the tunnel but the train hurdling toward the people who huddle together in the tunnel. They are praying for a miracle to take them out of their entrapment, so they can stop sacrificing their children on the altar of disinformation. The beast in the tunnel is squashing everything in front of it to run people over so it can get too the light of day at the other end of the tunnel, so it can bathe in it under false pretences.

I suspect we are still in front of a train which is unable to stop. Why? Because we are still using the money, milked from the people, to prop up industries which, under the rules of the free market, should die. The world acquired nationalised banking just like the Comunist World did.

This is the wages for the modern man for the ill considered mistakes of their leaders who view the world from a limited prospective of acquisition at all cost. The wages people pay for insanity are the blood and substance of the nation. Some people turned homeless and have abandoned their children. This is the beginning of abandoning to be a human and the beginning of turning into an animal. The only catch-cry is survival, where morality is thrown out the window; like a Coke bottle. The abandonment of human qualities are the next steps toward total meltdown of a previously great society, unless that society divests itself from attitudes promoting nothing but business and stop being politically correct.

I developed a connection with the bushman of the Kalahari Desert, and the connection grew in me after meditation when I realised I have a kindred spirit with the character in the movie. I remembered the story, searching for solutions like he did, about what is happening to the world, and what were the achievements man has made thus far and how those achievements will save us? Technology will not save, we already know that some technology progress only manages to increase the flow of money. What we need to create is a bridled control of our excesses, because that is what got us into the mess in the first place. China for many years undermined the world by artificially withholding the rise of their currency while working itself into a manufacturing giant.

I was ready to consider, where is our next stop. Where is that place where we re-assess our steps for the future? To use the aid of a simple man, to make sense of the turmoil, which is overshadowing our world? I thought this return to old fashioned wisdom would be the best process in order to escape disaster, because our normal life is so severely contrived that nothing is simple. Humans on this globe have been blended for some time now into a homogenous smoothie, where nothing stands out and all is blended into one. Our world best practice has killed all our honourable heros.

The speed, with which the down-turn progressed, seems instant just like the Coke bottle which was chucked out through the window of the aeroplane in the movie. The speed of the two events is identical. The bushman struggled to make sense of his encounter which had its origins outside his everyday life. He had to use all his skills and cunning, his senses, which served him in the past, to reconcile the new unknown object in his life, with the understanding he had built up about it. I am also struggling to understand the new world into which we changed.

I began to feel the mind of the man from the Kalahari growing in my own mind because the environment around me suddenly and intimately became interconnected with George W. Bush, who was the bottle out of the sky, thrown down by gods who must be crazy. I also discovered the proverbial Coke Bottle when I heard that President George W. Bush is going to chair the G20 economic summit and make further contributions to the already devastated economy of the world and the American Economy by promoting the same practice over and over again.

Sorry… Take two….

The world’s most hated President at the end of his destructive life-span as a president is given another bite at the cherry by heading the worlds economic summit where he is again promoting the free market which has nearly destroyed his country and placed the world at the brink of an economic and unrecoverable disaster.

How dumb is that?

It is not that George Bush is hated; it is that a calamity was unleashed on the rest of the world because the world is inevitably interconnected with the American dollar, which should be renamed from the green-back to the red-back. It is dangerous to be around, like a red-back spider. It is deadly if it bites you. George Bush was the driver, holding onto the steering wheel of the bus, which had its destination into the hell-hole of Afghanistan and Baghdad, pre-booked by Osama bin Ladin who knew the Bushmentality of personal revenge, and he made certain that Bush would drive the bus off the road in Asia. Israel cannot understand that the greatest nation ever can be reduced to a knee crawling magul by ants. In the H. G. Wells’s story “War of the Worlds” The Martians were destroyed by bacteria.

Australia has become famous again because our Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, supposedly was asked by President Bush, “what is the G20?” Consider, that for a long time I have reminded people that President Bush was born in a fire year and that Bush has no concern about what his torch is scorching because it is his nature to burn through obstacles. He must be a student of Tacitus, who believed, there is no glory in a peaceful empire. The Roman Empire has collapsed some four hundred years after Tacitus, so Bush has improved on Tacitus. It took him only eight years to destroy the American empire. He is also unaware of economics as I am unaware about the life of an otter in the wild countryside of America.

Is it good for the world that the most powerful man in the world lacks economic understanding, while the rest are desperate to find answers for the ills of the world’s economy, which was hastened by an incompetent president? Obviously it must be good because all great corporation and their CEOs want to carry on the same way as they have in the past, by demanding millions of dollars for their. All these bright people forget the proverb: “If you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got.”

Simple.

In my desert world of compassionless society, the “world leaders” are the crazy gods: powerful, protected and unelected. They run their “tyre tracts” across people’s lives, disregarding all who they roll under their tyres as if it is their “right-to-behave-as-they-will.” They have no policy to resolve the problem so long as there is indiscriminate growth. They act contrary to all the laws of God known to mankind.

Now we, the twenty-first century inhabitants of western culture are the recipients of a gift. This gift is our alarm clock, ready to awaken us from a long and deep ’sleep-in.’ This wakening is in the beginning of the greatest upheaval the world economy. It has yet not fully developed or unveiled before us.

What are the laws known to mankind which God provided for us?

1. There is only sufficient life-support on the planet to sustain life and not to be abused for indefinite growth.

2. Ignoring the above rule creates extinction. Just look at the disappearing animal and plant species.

3. Having a dollar, you only can buy a dollar’s worth. No more.

In the movie “The Gods Must Be Crazy,” N!xau is a simple, down to earth native of the land, who observes how the world works. He watches the seasons and the signs which disclose danger. He is very closely attuned to his environment. His survival depends on his awareness. He is the barometer of his world. He looks for all the little signs which will enhance his survival. His mind bends with the agility of a high-wire performer, who secures his work place. He is able to take his steps to cross the abyss with the confidence of a brave who has considered all dangers and took care not to have disasters.

When the Coke bottle falls out of the sky, N!xau tries to find ways to fit the object into the workings of his world. He fails each time because the bottle is not suitable for any purpose which ensures a good outcome in his world. The object found does not help him in any of his activities in the long run, because the object does not belong in his world. It is an outside influence, destroying the fabric of his society. When it does not work, he has to abandon a useless endeavour and has to discard the magic object despite its being useful in some parts, because it creates mischief at the same time.

Am I unfair to wonder about the sanity of the gods which rule the modern world, or is it the free will given by the gods that created a crazy American President? Or was it the people who voted him into office from the beginning, because they followed some crazy law of a God, destined to ruin the world?

Mercilessly, I would like to judge the thinking of modern advisers. The speeches I hear say: the stock-market will pick up eventually and we only see a glitch right now so talk up the positive side of the disaster. They say the past proved that this cycle changes over the years and the good time will come back again. I am sorry to inform these thinkers that they are as crazy as the gods who throw bottles out the window because good times do come back, but those who lost their money in the financial tsunami are unable to appreciate those recoveries. They are ultimately left behind. I would like to see the statistics of loses and not the climbs in the corridors of the stock market.

The very power of recovery which is needed for growth is not an option, because we have no oil to transform into work energy as we had in the past. The energy required to make the old economy fly like a bird is no longer available. Most energy and creativity is restricted to create other power sources and that is not production. That is working for survival. We have, on the other hand, intense growth in weather calamities. That means in economic terms, we are having an inflation of weather deformation which cannot be controlled with cutting interest rates. There will be no growth because the plants of the future providing food are already the legal property of large companies. Our health can not cope with the kind of life we live, or the toxic foods we develop. We are having extreme increase of ill health, be that physical or mental.

Growth is not available in the same way as when all the Indians were killed and the slaves have collected the cotton. The land acquired was and is abused without impunity. The canaries in the mines are no longer having difficulty breathing. They have already fallen off the perch. It is time for the miners to leave, abandon work and go to safety. Canaries are not the cause of the bad news; they are the messengers of it. They are the evidence of bad news which is undeniable. The world has endeared itself this far with crap-items. We purchased out ourselves for the next half a century. The morality of toxic food production and work ethics is not sustainable or desirable in the future world.

The next stage of development for the world is on the edge of the abyss. The “growth” we fail to notice is backwards (down the hill which we have just climbed) because we can not create with the same speed as we did before. President Bush’s unrestricted trade-practices are the same folly as the other great disasters men have created for themselves; Napoleon and Hitler just to name a few. Both of these crazy gods have engaged in wars (or encounters if you please) outside their safety limits. The supply line to achieve world domination has extended beyond safe return. Besides the war on terror there is nothing more than the Third Reich’s army, struggling against the partisans of the day. America has suffered a moral devastation like all other war-makers. America at the moment is morally and financially bankrupt.

In the last decade, the proud nation which had the distinction that everybody liked it, recently has sunk below respectable levels. In fact the people of nations are despising the American model. The modern business must travel far from home to count itself viable. When we speak about making inroads into virgin market territories may sound good but it is a fallacy because this migration speaks not of development but the postponement of economic downturn in the ultimate. What this means is that the local destruction went so far and so deep that we need new territory to sell wares; like China. This removal of work-power form home is no different to when one takes their armies far away and have supply problems as the two crazy gods mentioned before. The Romas exported their practices and failed. The British have done the same and failed, so did Germany and Spain. They too failed!

The mechanical world is in its last struggle. To be precise it is in a death struggle. If the reader has followed my elemental-astrology and understands the interaction of elements, would understand that the two Earth years of 2008 and 2009 are followed by two Metal Years of 2010 and 2011. The real collapse resulting from the slashing of the sword (representing metal years) will then be realised. The petrol shortage and credit crisis from 1972 followed by each decade after metal years (198219922002) where financial destabilisation times. The warnings were and are ignored because “no same business tycoon would listen to these kinds of astrological analyses.” These earth years were the introductory trembling of financial collapse to follow and we are witnessing the preparations for it now. The inflation of acquire now pay-later, so long as you buy-now, is not just taking hold but taking shape fast and it is an aggressive way to create a credit crisis. The companies like Harvey Norman in Australia advertising 20 months credit are unable to understand that we do not know what happens in a day never mind what may happen in a dream-time 20 months hence!!!!

Alvin Toffler’s: “Future Shock” is here. Buy the book!!!!

Learn to survive. Don’t buy a bookmark. Make one. Don’t buy a shirt, make one. Be proud about what you can do and not what you can buy. Small business is the only sustainable feature for the future. Those big business gods who (as I see it … are crazy) desire to return to the way it was are the grave diggers of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The barons, lords and prices in the past had to go because of their gathering of money and power. The barons of modern board-rooms also must go. The sickness of high wages unreasonably earned, must go or we are justifying our future-downfalls by ignorance. The only safe way is to have an equitable society where the level of well being is near equal to all. That way there is no envy.

Our decisions in the future will be like the industrial revolution, but in reverse and my contribution is to offer a way proven through observation of past history. We never had democracy and maybe the Greeks didn’t either if you look back deep enough. Democracy is not based on: “I do what I like, because I can.” That is open ended market, that is a poker game. Democracy is based on empathy, self restrictions and the predominance of the community of carers. That is also a thing we lost long time ago when we sold our assets like power, telecommunication and heath, because the unrestricted crazy gods demanded free range on their playground. I am sorry but in times like this we discover that the gods are crazy. The man in the Kalahari Dessert found out when he couldn’t make head or tail of events in his life.

These “articles of meditation,” are free of charge. They are testimonies about the accuracy of ancient wisdom as interpreted with present day wisdom. At this stage, the theme of: “The Gods Must Be Crazy” is the first in a line of articles dwelling into the future.

In closing, I asked a friend for his thoughts on the solution to this present economic turmoil. His replied came without hesitation. He said: “We need a messiah.”

Maybe “Dada” Barack will fit the bill to save the world of economic indulgence. He soared into office by the people of the world, holding hope for his election, but then, so was Bush growing out of the same people. He did not have the world behind him. We all understand Bush is a different timber (with all the pun intended) because only the Americans voted for him while the world refused to consider him eligible. I have the feeling Obama may just do for a messiah. I have no other choice at the moment and he emerges like a thief in the night. I look at him through the lenses of my skill, astrology.

Oh by the way, don’t forget, I called him “Dada” first. It is not a perfect name before we learn to know him, but will do as a credit-note for the time being.

Would the real Mr McCain please stand up.

Chinese Astrology, HourglassWisdom, Metaphysics, Vedic Astrology, World Events No Comments »

The nature of Chinese Astrology and Vedic Astrology is dynamic. In both disciplines one should look how narratives reveal the nature of the observed individuals and not what is happening in one’s mind. Don’t focus on the what, but on the how. The story-telling in these systems of astrology is not about the angles, planets or conjunctions. The focus should be on the living nature of the observations. For best results (if something appears confusing) in interpreting readings, just check the thinking processes. Redirect your analysis to interpret the informations provided in a narrative or in a “living way.” To enhance understanding of what is being involved, think like a tracker. Discover events through invisible footprints by using a ‘second attention,’ an awareness through behaviour. This style of observing is not that of a clairvoyant (subliminal vision) but the style of an unimpeded observer of nature.

I described the battle raging in America between Barack Obama and John McCain, with a casual look at Sarah Palin and Joe Biden (see other postings in: Recent Posts). I have predicted accuratly the rise and fall in popularity of Sarah Palin way back on the 17th of September 2008 in the article: “Is America courting the Abyss ?” Also described the fall of Senator McCain’s popularity in the final days before the election, and why Hilary lost to Obama. I have explained that Mr Greenspan, President George W Bush and Senator McCain were all born in fire-years (as described by the Chinese Astrology) which endows them with a rather destructive force, if applied negatively. They all were born in a year ending with numeral 6 indicating active fire-years.

Fire nature is the most powerful element having an active-nature, which respects nothing or very little. Fire burns through objects without concern what collateral damage it inflicts through its action. The one person who doesn’t appear as a fire year person is Ex-president Clinton. Yet he shares the fire-year character with the men listed above. He too was born in 1946, like President Bush. Those Americans who suffered the Lewinsky affair would understand the fire element in Clinton’s personality, especially if you look at Lewinsky’s birth year of 1973. 1973 is under the influence of passive water-year and it quenched Clinton’s fire-energy, though not enough to snuff him permanently.

Before the candidates are elected in the active 2008 earth year, I would like to make an indirect observation about John McCain, so America will have an inkling who they are voting for. I conclude with McCain because there maybe few people who will be influenced by my lines and migrate to the Obama camp.

The data available on Mr John McCain is the biography details available on the NET: Born 1936 August 29. In my experience not one astrology is sufficient to fully dissect an individual. That is why I am using  Chinese Astrology and Vedic Astrology.

The 2008 forecast in the Presidential elections:

Senator John McCain has advanced skills of cunning. No wonder, you heard the expression cunning as a Rat? He overcame all other Republican challengers during the primaries 2008, then sustained himself during the tornado of Sarah Palin and finally earned the respect of many “white American” folk, while the Obama  camp was exposed to claims that he is a Muslim, a man promoting taxes and other claims. McCain has a deep appeal to some white folk who are unable to live in a society where they are not the only inhabitants.

I suppose there are some who need convincing in depth. That is the reason I am making the evaluation with the aid of astrology and to test the accuracy of my analysis, freely and in advance. I feel even the stock market down-turn entered on the scene to harm Senator McCain…. as if God has elected him to suffer during his life: like in his captivity.

1936 is an active fire year. What does this mean in general? The active fire nature (1936) would be represented by burning wood.  People born under the sign of Red Rat have expressiveness, aggressiveness, leadership, passion and an unlimited source of energy. If this surge of energy started with excessive power and exuberance, may prove to inflict a toll on the individual born under these conditions and their effort usually finishes with a whimper. If Rat is born in the fire-year, it exhibits excessive energy which may appear as lack of discipline. Red Rat makes decisions on events which may not allow it to perceive the real workings in the background and becomes prone to mistaken judgement.

There is very little Rat is afraid of and the old folk story makes it clear. When Buddha called the animals, the Ox was the first who went to greet the Buddha. Rat asked Ox if he can ride on Ox’s head because he was little, weigh hardly anything. The obliging Ox agreed to help Rat. Just before they arrived to see the Buddha, Rat jumped off and run first to encounter the Buddha. That is the reason for Rat being the first animal in the zodiac cycle. Rat is directly blunt in his address to others and very verbal in ideas.

There are other hindrances in Senator McCain’s life. The Rat year in which he was born has the element of water as an element representing the Rat zodiac. This combination has a negative effect on the Fire year. By being in an earth-year in 2008, Senator McCain’s water governed Rat zodiac is disadvantaged because water dissipates into the earth unnoticed. So does Senator McCain’s power dissipates during the election process.

Look at the difference in the advertising money collected by the candidates and how the McCain war chest lost power because of his inappropriate decision to reject public money to finance his campaign. In simple terms this suggests that Senator McCain’s actions diminish his effectiveness because of his own personal attributes. Driven by water under the influence of Rat, he is disadvantaged in earnest in earth year. Senator McCain in other words is his own worst enemy and if he wins, you can take it for granted the election is not kosher.

August 29 falls under the influence of a Goat-moon in the Chinese astrology. This, again places McCain in conflict with himself, because Rat’s element water and Goat’s earth element conflict like the year 2008. This means that McCain’s personal qualities are effected detrimentally and are jeopardised by the conflicting energies around him. He is not able to maintain a strong presence because the water element of Rat is dissipated in the Goat’s earth-quality and affecting his own progress during a fire year. Perhaps this can be expressed in practical terms where he decided to acquire Sarah Palin as a winning help. How detrimental that move has become? Goat has other disadvantages, in that it is not exactly a diplomat. Goat attacks the victim when he turns around and the Goat rams the unaware individual in the butt.

In Vedic astrology August 29 falls under the influence of Magha, represented by a male rat. There is nothing in common between a Magha and an Ashlesha (which is Obama). They are like  the combination of a red flag and a bull. They are unable to have anything in common, except conflict. Ashlesha, the male Cat – the character of Obama is a hunter and the other, Magha, the male Rat- the character of McCain is the hunted.

But there is something about the zodiac of Magha, which is definitely undesirable (from a safety point of view), to be the character of the President of the USA. In Indian (Vedic) astrology Magha’s star system is represented by the position of not one star but by the intimate combination of three celestial bodies, namely the Sun, Moon and the Earth. This combination is governed by “Ketu.” Magha therefore belongs between both, the light and dark forces. It also switches between them rapidity. Magha is energised by the past and it suggests that there is something more profound in the connection between Magha and other zodiacs or events than first appears in front of the observer.

To fully understand, here is an explanation how it works: if one can imagine the Earth being interposed between the Sun and the Moon, this will result in a near instant darkness created by the moon eclipse. As the planets move, the light will return. Magha is a representative of such sudden change between light and darkness.

Senator McCain is too mercurial. His mouth will create often a detrimental result around him and thus he may become the agent of provocation. It is unfortunate that his obstinacy during the Vietnam war now it is presented as a positive aspect. He may be a good man, looking after his comrades on the ground, but it is he who is falling into conflict first.

His Presidency will be represented by a quicksand like stronghold on recovery. He will look for events which will highlight his character, rather than act with humility and win the peace. He may continue the war which would exhaust the American purse beyond return. Sarah Palin is identical in desire to her leader and will continue the war while Americans suffer illnesses and homelessness at home after the credit crisis.

Obama will not create the separation of states in the union, but McCain will, because of the more and more depressing financial relationship in the American federation. In this manner his presidency will be reflecting discontent and not unity. His fire-year nature will not be different from those of the Bush years. After all they were both born in the same nature-year. The difference is that a Dog is stupid (the birth sign of President Bush), while the Rat is ambitious and too unpredictable.

Would the real Mr Obama please stand up.

Chinese Astrology, HourglassWisdom, Metaphysics, Vedic Astrology, World Events No Comments »

The nature of Chinese Astrology and Vedic Astrology is dynamic. In both disciplines one should search for  how narratives reveal an individual’s behaviour and not what is happening with or to the individual. Don’t focus on the what happens to someone, but on the how does it happen, not unlike in the subject of the I Ching (or the Book of Changes). The story-telling in these systems is not about the angles, planets or conjunctions. The focus should be on the living natures of the observations. For best results in interpreting readings (if something appears confusing), just check the thinking processes and redirect your thinking to act in a narrative… in a “living way.” To enhance understanding think like a tracker. Discover events through invisible footprints by using a ‘second attention,’ an awareness through behaviour. This style of observing is not that of a clairvoyant (subliminal visions) but the style of a natural observer of nature. In my experience not one astrology is sufficient. That is why I am using  more than one astrology; Chinese Astrology and Vedic Astrology.

I have predicted the rise and fall in popularity of Sarah Palin on the 17th of September 2008 and unlike the American Press I did not call her a barracuda. Also, I have described the fall of Senator McCains’s popularity in the final days before the elections. I have explained that Mr Greenspan, President George W Bush and Mr McCain were born in a fire year (as described by the Chinese Astrology) which brings with them a rather destructive force. They all were born in a year ending with number 6 indicating that it is an active fire-year.

Fire is the most powerful element, which respects nothing or very little. The individual who does not fit the picture is Ex-president Clinton who shares the fire year character with the men listed above being born in 1946. Those inside America who suffered the Lewinsky affair would understand the fire element in Clinton especially if you look at Lewinsky’s birth year of 1973 which was a passive water-year and it quenched Clinton’s fire-energy.

Before either candidate is elected in an active 2008‘s earth year. I would like to make an indirect observation about Barack Obama, so America will have a hunch who they are voting for. I start with Obama because there are few people who may be influenced by my lines and migrate to the McCain camp.

The data available on Mr Barack Obama is the biography detailed on the NET: Born 1961 August 4.

The 2008 forecast in the Presidential elections:

Barack Obama has strategic skills, his language differs markedly form the language Senator McCain is promoting. He overcame Hilary Clinton’s challenge during the primaries 2008, then combated the tornado of Sarah Palin and finally earned the respect of many “white American” folk. The McCain camp had no vision and regressed to personal attacks. I do not understand what more people want from Obama! I suppose there are some who need convincing in depth, so that is the reason for the astrological evaluation here. I feel even the stock market down-turn has arrived to assist this candidate…. as if God himself has selected him to do a job and paves the way for him from his childhood till now and even created a credit crisis on Wall street to enhance Obama’s chances.

1961 is a passive metal year. What does this mean in general? The active metal nature (1960) would be represented by a sword, and the passive nature is represented by a kettle. Therefore people in passive metal year are not so much warriors as they are caterers to the world of people. People born under the sign of Silver Ox have righteousness, uprightness, determination in their character and can exhibit intense focusing on what is at the centre of their attention. Once Silver Ox dedicates him/herself to an issue, woe to those who get in the way. But this Ox born candidate also has a feminine nature. Not afraid to make certain that the truth is out and obviously presented. Financially not a bright spark in economic manipulation but Ox knows how to rope people, to get through the thickest problems. The year 2008 is most favoured for this Ox because 2008 is an earth year and earth brings forth metal, which is Barack Obama’s birth-year. The year of the Ox has earth as its own element so there is no conflict there.

August 4 falls under the moon of Horse. This places Obama in conflict with himself because Ox and Horse are not the best of friends, and also because the fire element of Horse is negating the energy of his birth year of metal 1961. So Obama behaves differently in public and in private. The energy of fire is creating earth and because of this, the earth sign of Ox is indirectly benefiting from horses unsettled nature and makes Ox a touch freer. Also the year energy is much greater than the moon influence.

In Vedic astrology August 4 is falling under the auspices of Ashlesha, represented by a male cat. The qualities of such astrological sign is a deep spiritual mind and spirit which gives an intense inner strength despite the outer lavish behaviour and above all the natives under this sign are appearing restless. This restlessness is nothing more then a very devoted search for answers. For those more versed in Vedic astrology, Obama’s guna triplicity is rajas on the physical level and Sattva on both mental and spiritual level. For the uninitiated, Rajas is a travel between real and abstract. Sattva is considered an attribute related to purity. The ultimate analysis would be to recommend people look beyond the restless need for discovery in Obama because one can trust that his intent is to get to the best answer.

The danger in Obama’s Presidency many consider the possibility of assassination. I do not believe that will happen, but I feel he will be unable to win a second term and that places him to exit in 2012. Mind you it may not be because there is a contender better than Obama. It is possible the integrity of the United States of America may not be what it is today. The year 2012 is a active water year which is in conflict with his lunar Horse character of fire and will suffer like Clinton with Lewinsky but not through the same kind of circumstances. Some personal matter will bring him unstuck in the year 2012.

His Presidency will be represented by a firm and solid stronghold on situations and he will be successful bringing the American Nation into respecting it in the word not in the manner the USA was respected during the Cold War where the USSR was considered evil and America was looking good as a result of comparing the two nations. President Barack Obama will bring the nation to be respected on its own merits, which at this stage is hard to imagine.

Finally, I do not believe Obama will be able to dissipate the negative emotions acquired during the Bush years and may not be able to cleanse the name of America during his presidency, but be it known his election will be concluded  in his favour because the whole world is behind his election, and behind the man.

Mr Greenspan’s spade

Chinese Astrology, HourglassWisdom, Metaphysics, Vedic Astrology, World Events No Comments »

Edward R. Murrow I am not.  Even if Paul Revere (according to history) failed to ride in the night to warn about the British, I would like to take his place and shout as I ride across the American Nation: Wall Street is coming, Wall Street is coming.

I have a fascination for the power of proverbs. These small gems are “word-barricades,” used against adversaries like advertisers, real-estate agents and politicians. By using proverb-defence, the ship of one’s life, floating dangerously in choppy waters will not sink because wisdom-sayings remind us of self preservation practices. The same is applicable during financial wars. One learns routine in a defence system. One practices, and practices systematic habits ’til becomes second nature, so when the time comes for defence everybody acts automatically and without panic.

This is what is supposed to happen when you know what you are doing.

Mr Greenspan, you failed to introduce into your world a small proviso called caution. Below, in terms of astrology, I will explain why I perceive that you have acted according to your nature and not according to wisdom, thereby making you guilty of acting against the welfare of the country and should be punishable by law. My contribution to your ideology is the suggestion that you have ignored the most creative economic book written by  Schumacher called: “Small is Beautiful.”. America would be holding the gold and the rest of the world also would be peaceful and wouldn’t look like a house made of cards if you had read this classic. American readers should look at that book for self preservation.

So back to the title. Remember the proverb – “Call a spade a spade not a shovel?” Recent news about the testimony of Mr Greenspan reminded me of this proverb because that is the practice he is in. The process of disclosing to us what he has discovered about himself in recent months amounts to the meaning in the proverb. He says he is building spades (the active and sturdy character of a nation by manipulating interest rates) when in fact selling shovels (forgetting the nature of the money he is shaping through interest rates). The original proverb has a hidden meaning about honesty that you promote what you are claiming. My use of this proverb refers to the character and nature of his understanding about the meaning of his error. The character of money suddenly lost, its real nature through the manipulation of banks among each other became corrupted, so in fact made Mr Greenspan’s “adjusting the leavers” not-possible and his persistence that he was correct became a farce. His expert eye failed to see values called sub-prime. The very words trigger an alarm.

The present reality in a real world is counting down toward the “inflation of global warming.” Then the shortage and the lack of availability of gas will “exponentially inflate.” Large businesses will fall because the ground upon they are set is uncertain and will produce economic tsunamis when falter, like they have done now!!! That is also the future event on the world stage because one person’s greedy acquisition is someone else’s disaster. Failed ideologies have the only “infinite growth.”

As an analyst I ask myself if this is not another manufactured crisis to take our eyes off the Middle East as 9/11 took our eye off the Lebanon crisis? If it is I can add another inflation to the list: “the inflation of failure.”

Mr Greenspan, your predecessors in the management of America’s economy through Wall Street destroyed American family life in the last century. They had the courage to jump from the windows because of their ruined honour and the suffering they caused to millions of people. You on the other hand have the audacity to tell to the American people through your testimony that “ideology hampered good governance!!!” This is the testimony and the core of the illness that the American nation has. That is the testimony and the core of Zimbabwe and Mugabe, who has an ideology and has the governance that you had.

So what is the way one may reconstruct or reverse-engineer through astrological aspects why such character as Mr Greenspan should have been disregarded as an academic advisor on the ground of astrology. Also why we are adding to the future problems.

Mr Greenspan was born according to the records on March 6, 1926. The years ending in 6 are active fire years, such as 1926, 1936, …etc. People born during active fire years will not negotiate. They just burn through things like a welder’s torch. When that happens, all the materials will be fused together.

To give you a comparison, another character born in a 6 year is George W. Bush. He was born 1946. The similarity goes a bit further. Mr Greenspan’s sign is Tiger, while President Bush was born under the sign of Dog. Both are aggressive animal characters if born under the influence of fire and their aggression comes to the fore. Both attack and above all they are extremely compatible, so these two individuals placed together in a national scene create harmony between themselves and I wonder how much their combination has contributed to the present disharmony.

From a Vedic astrology point of view, Mr Greenspan is represented by the sign of a male Lion – Purve Bhadra. Again to make a comparison, Sarah Palin’s Vedic astrology places her in a female Lion zodiac – Dhanishta. In hindsight we may say, neither has sense for finances only hunting. Palin is able to spend on clothes (big time) and Mr Greenspan also spent big time because he also has a blind spot for cautious living.

The moon cycle under which Mr Greenspan was born is represented by Ox. This places him to be described as an iron fist in a velvet glove forging his will through all obstacles. This nature may be fitting a bulldozer, not a financier whose task is to have a near clairvoyant quality.

These articles I write so people will have a good understanding about the nature of the service we offer by analysing energy lines between people on the long run and therefore contributing to the understanding of how people related to each other. It is valuable for occasions where people desire to embark on projects and if nothing else will provide a lateral view, another way by which one can evaluate situations. For example, after looking at this analysis, do you think it is a good idea to attend the forum President Bush has called? I think not.

Finally the last birthday before America is choosing a president. Senator John McCain was born 29 August 1936. Can anyone see a pattern in here and why the ultimate push downhill for the American nation would be the election of Senator McCain as President?

Have I understood this correctly…..?

HourglassWisdom, World Events No Comments »

As it happens, when I listen to a Real Estate Agent or an Encyclopedia sales person – by the time they have finished their learned and well prepared presentation and I am asked – “Would you like our very affordable leather bound edition in a colour that would be pleasing to your wife?” the yes word is automatically placed at the end of my tongue by some very clever psychologist who trained the sales person, and I am a millisecond away from ruining my life. This is the same kind of feeling when I recall my uncle’s words educating me in the ways of western economics. He was a business consultant interested in convincing state governments to place fruit-juice factories in Mildura, Australia where the nearby states were splitting at the seams with orange orchards and they had problems deciding what to do because they were politicians. Whenever he was pressed for an answer like: “We must have your reply – just about now,” his inimitable answer was: ” I am afraid I have to talk over this proposal with my mother in law.”

Now, this as you may imagine, has stopped the apple rolling off the table and into which he was asked to take a bite. You know what happened to Snow White? She was lucky – unlike Adam who suffers ever since.

So when I heard today, that the governments of the world have understood the real struggle people have because of the American Bedlam, they volunteered to help the nations of the world by creating a sense of certainty with the creation of a feeling of security. This happened as a result of under-pinning the banks and guaranteeing that the deposits of people on the streets are safe.  As a result of the disquiet, they also decided to make even more certain that my money is in a bank by the fact that they bought into these huge money chewing machines.

I discovered that I had one of those “apple-moments” and although nobody asked me, I have decided it is time to talk to my ‘mother-in-law’ about the state of affairs. In reality, my mother-in-law is dead a long time ago, but the concept is still alive. I had to rely on my own ‘mother-in-law’ I have created in my mind. I have to tell you that, that thing in my head when comes to giving away money to people shrieks like a stuck pig.

Have I understood this correctly: the banks wrote off a heap of money and transfered the poisonous debt to the state while saving the money into their private accounts? These people who played Monopoly with the money kept their ill-gotten gains because the government of the United States’s Government paid the losses they created. The bright and economy-sevvy Mr George W. Bush and my government (in Australia and quasi, by default in America also) pay for those debts and purchasing bank-interests (as in Great Britain) by socialising the banks with the money we have.

So now the same gamblers who lost all the money are given another lot of chips to have some more lucky cards dealt, with which they are able to spend our own savings – the little we had left – they are free to  play with again? We bought the banks or part thereof to have our security guaranteed?

Damn. I now understand why I was never good at finance!!!

But one thing I know. I am not giving any more to these people to play with. I am going to have my money and pay my security which the government asked. Except that I hold the money in my hot little hands.

The reason? Well, in America there was an inflation of housing. Many did not call it that. They have called it a bouyant market. Then there was an economic downturn the kind we did not have before. We had an inflation of money loss. The inflation of recovery had risen to the past safety limit and I can go to sleep now because I am secure?

I am afraid I like the theory of the bouncing-dead-cat inflation. Which is the inflation of extra play with things that will never get up. If the economy is in need in support, why should I not help by economising? Maybe not in a bank.

Those who forever speak about the inevitability of the market rising I would like to give them some advice. But first a comment to these wise people: “You are crazy!”

In the past there was unlimited oil. Now we are having nearly none. Our air is poisonous and we must spend money to clean up the polution which we will keep doing because that is what economy must do, but at the same time spend money on cleaning up. So not only do we need to pay people, we now need to pay for the mess and we have no petrol to make things work.

I think there are some serious poisonous people around in charge. John McCain and Sarah Palin are telling me that they MUST win. The oil states are splitting with their money in their pocket and the bankrupt state of the United States of America is guaranteeing the bank losses?

I know. I am a very bad dispenser of bad news which seems to unsettle the fermented minds of people who are afraid of losing their money and stability is lost. But how do I get the mother-in-law out of my head before I need to give an answer to the question if I am going to bite the poisonous apple?

Guide to the U.S. Economic Bedlam.

Chinese Astrology, Vedic Astrology, World Events No Comments »

I would like to apologise for the technical description in the beginning of this article because without it, it is difficult to explain the dilemma of the financial problem the world is facing properly. One needs to explain after all, how the evaluating-apparatus works. I will use ‘minimum-stress’ explanation and expand the description sufficiently so one is able to follow the argument at a complex level.

Evaluating how elements interrelate in the Chinese elemental system one needs to observe how the universe works around us through this system. Everything can be described through this system in the same manner as ‘real’ science can describe events and interactions. Good astrologers make predictions as accurately as the accuracy of the weather prediction. This system is fluid and can be used as one would use a ruler-in-the-mind to measure contingencies. This is the way we estimate chance-elements in a horse race or at the stock-market and ultimately how we estimate friends and enemies and marriage for that matter is just like this system. The Chinese elemental analysis is like the science of ecology. Ecologists look around in an observed place to discover what groups interact (animal, bacterial or plant) and how their relationship affects those observed.

Elements Reconcile

Please note:

  • Right-click on an images, then choose the option View Image to enlarge image.
  • After viewing, just click on the “Go Back One Page” (Return button) which is situated under the ‘File’ (pull-down-menu) on the top left and continue reading.

The diagrams labeled “Elements” represent a complete set participating in the elemental cycle and how one element-nature follows the next step. The diagram depicts the simple interrelationships between the participating natures while the picture entitled “Reconciling” shows the complexities when one analyses an issue in detail or when matters get complex.

In the diagrams, the colour black represents = metal nature, blue represents = water nature, green represents = wood nature, red represents = fire nature and ochre represents = earth nature. The word element is not a very appropriate description. I like the word integrity because each element behaves exactly as one expects it to behave and thus its ‘integrity’ is preferred.

There are also two hues of each colour, representing active and passive natures. The blunted star tips (lightly coloured pentagons) represent yin or passive qualities, while the pointy ones with fullness of colour are representing yang or active qualities. The thin-lines with arrowheads (going from tip to tip and from one colour to another represent the interaction between the elements and the movement of energies. Their colour gives indication of the particular characteristics associated with them.

Elements Reconcile

Thus years 1940, 1950, 1960 etc., are active-metal or yang years and this is indicated with the numeral 0 in the pointy colour area, while 1941, 1951, 1961 are passive-metal years and the figure 1 indicates in the grey coloured pentagon the passive nature of the year. The same is applicable in the 1942, 1952, 1962 etc., years for active-water. Again the numeral 2 and the numeral 3 depict active and passive-water years respectively. The following colours are for: wood year (green), fire year (red) and earth year (ochre and yellow).

A comparison can be made between the Chinese system of elemental analysis and the United States financial crisis because the perfect system is a natural elemental cycle and provides a good counter point for an artificially created system. The convoluted – man made chaos of finance, shifting from here to there – is feeble. The elemental cycle on the contrary is perfect because it is like the water cycle or the  carbon dioxide cycle in real nature. A cycle which is naturally observed in nature and even in life there are cycles such that of a worm → pupa → butterfly → eggs → worm. Then the cycle repeats again.

Now we may be just ready to jump into the thick of the teetering financial world of the United States, which is either collecting a cold or it is having a serious bronchitis as a prelude to pneumonia.

Since the world finances have changed from a gold-based system (approx in 1950s) to an open ended system, puts the Chinese elemental integrity apart and separate from the nature of the US finance. The gold based system was harmonious with the Chinese elemental astrological system. Simply put, the maximum amount one could borrow was the amount of gold the country or individual possessed. No one could borrow beyond that and the value of gold was represented by the US greenback. So the financial system pre 1950s was closed just like the total availability of elements in nature are closed into the world we are living in. Maintaining it would have curtailed excesses, while the open system used it to liberate itself and to gather damage in its wake as it happens now.

Elements Reconcile

Though separate in principle the natural financial cycle and the artificial one – this divergence of the artificial financial systems from the Chinese or natural systems – may be used to unravel the understanding the American present financial illness. The closed system is the same as the Gaia principle which was abandoned by the high-flying executives because they could not do what was incorrect on the long run. Now she (Gaia) demands attention through the natural turmoil which creates bigger and bigger disasters because there was no respect for her.

The American financial system at the moment is trying to maintain the illusion of ‘all’s well if we just pass the laws.’ If they bail out the institutions and their loss, they have only fixed the leaky boat. I am afraid now it is time to consider not a boat but the Titanic. That majestic traveller of the sea (Titanic) also had a leak. The problem was the complications about an inability to keep the water out of the hull. A nightmare, which like the sword of Democles hangs over the head of the American Legislators.

What enables man to know anything at all about the world around him?Knowing demands the organ fitted to the object’, said Plotinus (d. A.D. 270). To have the right organ fitted for the job, observe the diagram labelled Elements. Topmost active metal and clockwise following → passive metal → active wood → passive wood → active fire → passive fire → active earth  → passive earth. This paradigm in the diagrams is the real evaluer of closed systems where the characteristics similar to life are observed.

The arrows – outside the star – indicate the most favourable sequence in the Element diagram. Metal helps water appear when digging the ground or pounding living matter like fruit. Metal creates water. A water person benefits from a metal conditions because his/her energies are supported by metal. Water in turn will help the wood person to grow and wood in turn fuels fire. To a writer born in a fire year, a wood partner will be very rewarding, while in tern fire through its own activity when supplied with wood will create earth which in turn will contain metal. Therefore metal is born from the earth.

Elements Reconcile

Now turn for the inner descriptions of what the arrows show. Starting again from metal in top position, metal getting involved with fire nature will destabilise metal because fire melts metal. While fire dominates metal, water diminishes fire’s power. Fire gives energy away to water. Water is absorbed by earth and will disappear because earth soaks it up and thus dissipates it. Wood extracts the power of earth for its own growth and it is metal which cuts wood to reduce it in size.

The Reconciliation diagram on the right describes how (integrities) elements behave when one needs to balance or remedy negative relationships. Again, if we start with metal in top position, it will gain power over wood by controlling the size of wood and in turn fire will be affected because it will have reduced heat which can be turned onto metal. In the diagram, the arrow from fire travels to wood which in turn travels to metal. So this is how the Chinese elemental system is realised in schematic way to make it a little simpler.

In the American financial system the unrestricted growth (like plants which supply food to individuals) has grown oversize and was stored without reduction in size by slow ‘fuel reduction.’ Bushfires are greater if no ‘fuel reduction’ is applied. Now all the fuel (money which was freely available before) has disappeared. No more wood as it were. This is because of the war which is an uncontrolled fire and the housing crisis was the last flame which took the last bit of finance security away. This was the plan of Osama bin Ladin in the first place. He could not believe his luck when the Bush administration followed Sadam Hussein. Bush the general has made the same mistake as Napoleon in Russia. Napoleon lost because of the supply lines were so long, it could not support troop actiity. Bush fallen in the same trap.

Elements Reconcile

The bailing out of the banks, if it goes according to President Bush’s request is like taking another lot of wood, which was in storage for the American people and burning it by those who have caused the fire in the first place. The difference is going to be in the future that there is no more ability for the country to have any ‘winter store’ set aside because they are now preparing to burn what is left, so the practice of self destruct will be maintained.

The security for the money deposits to protect people’s money is one criterion some legislators desire to introduce to protect the depositors money, so the people who abused their position will not be able to burn more unrestrictedly. But these steps will not assist. It is not enough to protect trees from the weather, they must also be fed. The earth nature which fuels growth (wealth of the nation) was abused by those who have done the burning. If they are used to promote growth in the cycle is where the capitalist system will create its own decomposition because if the system is used as it was the proverb that if you do what you did will for ever give you what you got.

The American nation must find another way of living. President Bush, who waisted enormous amounts of money of the American people, should pay for the result of his work. The same way as drug dealers are divested of their wealth acquired through crime, so should politicians pay for the loss of money that belonged to the nation.

If the devastated public purse can not be replenished from those who created the ‘money burning’ in the first place the natural cycle is damaged. That is what stagnation is. Financial mumbo-jumbo talk can not avoid facing the real cycle of integrities!! This is where the need for the restrictive and rigid nature of metal is needed to chop the wild growth of wood nature people who suck the quality out of the earth without replenishing the substance needed for growth.

Elements Reconcile

The application of metal to prune will assist the re-appearance of water which is also needed for growth. Water’s nature is to meander and to get to the most stable point where it can gather into a passive pond which will be more powerful then a brook which happens when people are restricted to do to work to created and search out new paths. Water nature is the nature of the American peoples. At the moment the earth that is created by the fire of people profiteering individuals keeps the profit made in their possession. This way as was said: ‘They have privatised the profit and socialised the debt.

This year is active earth year. The fluidity (water element) of the American finances has been absorbed further by the active earth year. Next year is a passive earth year and more energy will be lost because of lack of understanding of natural cycles in the Americas. The focusing on unnatural financial concepts that are appearing as a saving system is irrational in comparison to natural sequences and that will further undermine the country.

The following years of 2010 and 2011 are metal years and that is where America will be pruned even more and the growth of wood (food for the natural growth) will be devastating. The only hope is placed (from an astrological point of view into the 2012 of water year, but because there will be no stability in the previous years of metal (2010, 2011) the country will slide more into a system which is unable to recover. This also corresponds to the 2012 enigma.

Again the past two thousand year’s philosophy coming out of the Judeo-Christian Biblical concept of ‘use all in the world because god gave it to you’ is in the centre of greed-illness plaguing the US. The religion of greed is what does not respect natural cycles and that is what is destructive. The fuel provided by China through the cheap productions has also contributed. The Islamic states desiring to change currency to gold is devastating the recovery of the US because they are unable to afford to change back as this would make them having to face reality, that what they own is amounting to near nothing.

Elements Reconcile

The close study of the Reconciliation diagram provides the answer to the politicians. Bailing out the banks who are the wrongdoers is the push that will destroy the American nation. The present burning of money as President Bush has done in Afghanistan and Iraq is the problem. The insatiable greed of real-estate agents created an inflation of housing. Now America is looking down the barrel of the inflation of inflation. Who can ignore Zimbabwe!! The same natural cycle was destroyed by Mugabe and the inflation of thousands of percent is the result.

The addition to the mix of John McCain who desires to do the same and some more fails to understand that the bin Ladin strategy of metal chopping here chopping there of the American branches causes the bleeding of the nation. The estimation I have is that the decomposition of the state of the USA is not only inevitable but has turned the apex and now is heading down the slope.

America must bite the bullet and take the money out of the pocket of the wrong doers to survive. Knowing how the American think I bet my bottom dollar as the best investment I can make that they will not.

Acquiring Asthma through Bad Medication.

Empiric Medicine No Comments »

Medical researchers discovered that young children, if administered Paracetamol, acquire asthma in later life. I suspect the medical profession is shocked by the discovery. The most frightening part is (if I understand correctly), the intensity of the symptoms is related to the quantity of Paracetamol ingested.

The medical profession – for some time – has made people ill because doctors failed to pay attention to what they are doing and what effect their remedies create. I often hear that medication repeated without paying attention to details causes patients intoxication through the inappropriate and imposed medication. Imposed it is because the doctors tell the patient to take the medication and say: “Why do you think I have prescribe it ? For you to take it!” A doctor, distant from the patient and keeping them at arms length is a good practice to pass the buck of responsibility and to avoid lawsuits. It is so easy to say, “This is what is recommended by the pharmaceutical companies and therefore we administer it.” We know however that at the end this kind of thinking is just negligence.

The careful eye of your local family doctor, after prescribing the dose of Paracetamol, is no longer kept on the patient because there is no time for that. Not only that but the delay of the symptoms is a good excuse to shove the issue under the table because one can not use a crystal ball to see the future.

The next patient pays for the office, electricity and the Volvo. So the observation falls on empiric observers, the parents, the para medics, and shamans, who closely observing: what medication administered and what is the reaction to them. This alertness then is transmitted to the researchers and this is how people discover damaging ignorance. By all rights, the doctors should be responsible for misdiagnosis and damage as a result of attention-omission to details.

Let me then preview of what takes place in a family and how we can avoid the damage to our children who are presenting an acute temperature and for all intents and purposes, have the clear set of symptoms we would describe as: having a cold. The symptoms are very acute, the child has a headache and sweats a lot and he/she is unable to go to sleep because of discomfort.

Please take Note: There could be other reasons for the reaction in a child and so one should be alert if other symptoms will persist after the recommended treatment below in this article persists. If the symptoms are not reduced within hours from being administered, it is strongly recommended a visit to the doctor. No parent should assume that what appears in these pages is the only possible illness or possible solution for what they may observe in their children while in the grip of temperature, sweating and irritability associated with head ache; a possible cold (flu like) attack on the child.

In the next few lines I will describe what can appear as a cold/flu and also a toxemia.

If the child had a few days earlier food which was not suitable or the child was run down and complex food was used to feed the child such as pizza. The body, as a result of the inappropriate food-kind is unable to process the food properly or fast enough. This causes extreme increase in the toxic material in the body, which creates the classic flu like symptoms.  A general body lethargy seems not to want to disappear . The stomach feels unhappy and the patient has no desire to eat or feels uncomfortable but decides not to stop eating.

At this stage the parents suddenly feel fearful and dash to the hospital or to the family doctor who decides that having a cold is virus based no use to give antibiotic, so they decide to help parents with reducing the suffering of the child and prescribe Paracetamol (Panadol). Please check for trade name changes in your country. More often if the symptom appear after hours the parents wait till the morning to take the child to a physician, so if by the morning the symptoms have not subsided, the doctor must be visited.

The empiric observers realise that the symptoms presented is an intoxication because the kidneys are not efficient enough. In fact this solution also working for adults as well as it works for children. I am not certain how it would affect people who have reduced kidney functions, but it would be a good thing to try. I would be very appreciative any comment emailed (if someone decides to use it as a assistance to reduced kidney functions) so we may update the information.

The remedy consists of: using potatoes and vinegar. A bowl to fit both feet and a grater, plus vinegar and warm water needs to be prepared.

The procedure is this: first grate two or three largish potatoes (sufficient quantity to cover both feet of the patient). Place the bare feet of the patient in the bowl in which the potatoes were grated and cover the naked feet with the potato gratings. Leave the feet covered for at least half an hour and will be noticed that the potato turns pinkish because of the urea the potato drew through the skin and thereby acting like a second set of kidneys. After the recommended time, wash the child’s feet and mix separately warm water and vinegar: say one litre water and two or three spoonfuls of vinegar. Wash down the body of the child with this warm mild white vinegar mix. DO NOT dry the skin of the child, but put the pyjamas on and put them to bed. They will be in deep sleep in a short time.

In the morning the child will be active and hardly any symptoms of ‘cold/flu.’ If this does not occur, the child must visit a physician ASAP.

In cases without complication, the potato removes the toxic materials. The blood which has turned alkaline, with the mild vinegar changes the blood picture toward neutral. I think this very old remedy may reduce the toxification and reduces the cases of asthma in children in the future. Simple but effective.

Is America courting the Abyss ?

Chinese Astrology, Vedic Astrology, World Events No Comments »

Even the astrological aspects (and not only the statistical analyses) tell loudly that the 2008 Presidential election in America is close to the wire. Setting aside the idea of being close numerically; a look at the way the future is betrothed to the candidates is better way to assist people with decision making: which way to jump. This meditation is not fortune telling but an evaluation through observed cultural intelligence which rests in every nations’ history. This astrological appraisal is but a look at the energies which will collide in the future according to the law Chinese sages called elemental astrology. So please don’t bother with platitudes about disrespect for women when words like active an passive are used.

I raise the issue of women because for many millenniums, women have failed to show that they are bred for war. Speaking to some present women in America, they freely admit not liking Obama. It is not surprising. The loss of men and fathers during WW I and WW II. This vacuum created a culture among ‘modern’ women in which they do not take kindly if someone tells them, (like fathers used to say): ‘that’s enough.’ Their posturing about Barack Obama is the image of a society at war. The women folk dislike his firm stand. So now we have the possibility that the freedom loving, uncompromising gum chewing and tobacki spitting women of America are threatening the nation’s well being because they dislike the rise of fatherly firmness and they claim the God given right to do as they please, even if that means the destruction of the superpower called America.

Today no American has the right to claim the right to the kind of democracy which brought them to where they are found today. Today people only have the right to seek a saviour because this far they have managed to elect a President who had degraded the American nation to levels yet not seen and an economic level no person thought the country can reduced to. So having a President like McCain who wants to spend more money to chase terrorists down the street in Pakistan is a full blown recipe for the further financial destruction of a once great country. Born in the year of the Rat and water for main element, McCain needs restriction to succeed because a brook has no restriction it has no power. Water only has power if restricted. His running mate would be of no help and America would get more what it had under the unrestricted presidency of Bush. So please look under your feet ladies before you leap to vote because you may leap into the Abyss and your actions will unravel hell itself from its chains. The only female warriors I know about were the kilt wearing Scots, who were called the ladies from hell by Adolf Hitler so please understand today safe vote.

Certain immature people would call my stance as a dominating male. It is high time for these people to understand the difference between firmness and domineering.

So let’s examine the question: “Is America attracting the Abyss?” But first the birth details:

—————————————————-

The astrological combination between all the characters is extremely complex. It would be very unfair if the reader would be taught about the intimacies of the way (Chinese) astrology is analysed right now, because it does not make much sense to this astrologer either. It is that close.

It is safe to say that the best move the McCain machine has received was the selection of Sarah Palin for the Vice President. Certainly that is how it looks on the surface and not far into the selection examination. But those who have seen movies about creatures who stir at the bottom of the lagoon while the happy holidaying family with mum, dad and the kiddies swim above carelessly on the surface is the issue in here. The danger with the incorrect choice (in astrological terms) is the abyss Americans need to understand because some of the following issues are endangered:

The quality of relationship between America and European Countries
The Humiliation of the Republican Political Party Integrity
The integrity of the American Nation
Global wars

There is nothing new in these considerations because everybody is dancing in the shadows of such dangers through the money markets and global financial control. Projecting forward into the future through the astrological energies-observed, the unsettling situation is not only eminent but staggeringly threatening under the surface. Electing the people right now without long term view how their presence could influence future conditions; (as if we have only present and immediate judgement), we crystallise and grow very quickly the span of diminishing-time to recover world-balance.

Reasons:
The character of Obama is that of an Ox: powerful, helpful, un-emotional, firm male nature in a male body, Unlike George W. Bush who has a female nature in a male body and that combination should speak volumes about the eight years he had to reduce the countries dignity.

Obama is the kind that would sit in the opposite corner to issues with the ‘Russian reshuffle of territory’, the Palestinian issue, Iran and so on, and hold out till he is going to get what he wants. From an Indian (Vedic) Astrological perspective, Obama has both his mental and spiritual prospective at a very high level and male nature in unison with his astrological aspects. His running mate, Joe Biden is a highly skilled mental thinker (because he is born in a Horse year, working in the background). Not only that Biden has a Dog nature in his lunar cycle, attributing him the character of loyalty and obedience when the horse element is not interfering. The two would be bringing America out of the pit in which she finds herself after the Bush experiment and in the uncertain financial crisis which has risen since this post was first edited and published.

In contrast, John McCain is escorting the flip-flop mentality of Magha (Indian Astrology) which is for ever between the light and the dark side of unpredictability what we experience during sun-eclipse or moon-eclipse. In his lunar aspect the selfish Goat meeting the contriving Rat nature in one individual would be a disaster considering the economic turmoils in the offing.

Added to this, Sara Palin whose Indian Astrology is associated with a female lion (Dhanishta) and therefore the pinnacle of the predators. She is not a hockey mum. She is a grizzly with inability to refrain from conflict. She is self driven, self governed and the kind that is unable to take advice on-board because a lack of understanding of the finer and more refined points of the arguments presented to her, because all she knows is how to run-down prey and nothing else. Not a strong point of a diplomat, representing the country. America is not told through the media to their people that the nation’s future and stability will be based on risky outcome if the Vice-President has earned the right to be elected alone on the premise that she is a woman.  That is not a criteria for wholesome decisions!! Sara Palin trains her mind only for combat and steeped in the practice of opposition for just about everything, much like Mr Bush. There is no reverse gear in Palin makeup.

The male oriented Islamic mentality in Jihad-mode would have a field-day because a woman controlled by her male-nature will always be defeated against a male-warrior Osama bin Ladin. Born in 1957 he is a Rooster by year and a passive fire year, which amounts to a sharp eyed, fly in the face, claws first person with critical predisposition, wo has metal and fire conflict in that Rooster has metal element and the birth year is fire = 1957. Unfortunately we do not know his actual moon-date, but it is suffice to say that as McCain born under the auspices of Rat, his fire year is working against him because Rat has water for element and fire for the year nature and therefore McCains powers would be diminished. Not only that, but McCain’s water element Rat is stifled in an earth year (2008 & 2009) because the earth absorbs water and dissipates its energies. Faced with bin Laden, he is twice at a loosing end because bin Ladin is born in a fire year and his group is therefore fire natured.

Palin as a person born in a Rabbit zodiac (near the cusp of Dragon – but not quite) her nature benefits in an earth years like 2008.  This far the bin Laden energy centered organisation Al-Qaeda has managed to steel the security of the American financial-world from under their noses. The Islamic world converted to gold in the Oceanic region of the world and because of it, every time the US dollar goes down their currency is rising.

Palin – looks tough on the pages of a glossy magazine with the aid of a photographer, but when the cards are dealt, she is a woman and will be unable to combat the Islamic warriors’-mind because as a woman she will be been confronted in America about her worth by pushing people in harm’s way. So who is the ‘stunt double’ for the President as a chief if McCain’s health would fail? Her financial policies are the same as McCain’s: bleed America into a second rate failing state by continuing to supplement the war machine which is devastating the well being of the country. She has not been asked about that aspect of her value in case she needs to take over the reign.

This instability in Palin’s future will be exploited through the Israeli-defence and will give Israel the impetus to take the military initiative by creating a unsettling situation in form of a pre-emptive strike. The American nation will be up to her elbows in wars which are already developing as it is failing up in Afganistan. George W. Bush will look like a kinder garden kid with a bib compared the chaos Palin is able to create by default. It is one thing to go hunting and shooting a few wild-creatures which travel slow on their feet and the other is for a mum to send American children in harms way because she created the conditions for a push to exterminate islamic terrorists, like the early Americans have exterminated the American Indian Nations.

Both McCain and Palin are under the influence of The Chinese Zodiac of rat and Rabbit (or Cat, pending the school you studied under). Both are intensely territorial and will have a sharp or perhaps over enthusiastic reply at a time when quiet consideration is due and the fuse is in danger of being lit.

Rat is disadvantaged because the earth years will devastate Rat’s (McCain) water power as meager as it is and Rabbit (Palin) is under the influence of wood element. While it is ok now in 2008&2009 (because the years which happen to be earth years), this combination devastates water and feeds wood. But the years 2010-2011 are Metal years and that would prune the Rabbit’s (Palin) growth to a stump and pick up Rat’s (McCain) standing. Under the ruler-ship of McCain and Palin, America will become vulnerable in those two years (2010 – 2011) if McCain would die and Palin would be leading because she would be under the influence of negative energy while the Obama camp is separated and is able to better distribute the negative influences upon their leadership.

Regarding the events before and during the last few days – just prior to the election day – the political choices will be extremely critical for both parties because those days are the points of vulnerability. The run-up month of October, will appear that the McCain camp is taking the lime light and even appear to be protected. The winds of fortune will change direction and the people will question the Obama camp and they will have the answers.

I put my head on the block (with a prediction) and say that Barack Obama will just slide through the crack under the door into the oval office in the White House in the mind of the voters in the few days before the votes are cast and the counting will prove the events started well before the election being called.

Astrologically the other choice, namely the McCain and Palin axis is a guarantee to be heading the world into the uncharted waters of a war zone where the American Nation will become more than vulnerable if the flip flop John McCain is in the driver’s seat.
