“In front of this wall was a slope in which was embedded a stone that jutted out - my stone. Often, when I was alone, I sat down on this stone. and then began an imaginary game that went something like this: “I am sitting on top of this stone and it is underneath.” But the stone also could say “I” and think: “I am lying here on this slop and he is sitting on top of me.” The question then arose: ‘“Am I the one who is sitting on the stone, or am I the stone on which he is sitting?””—

“Imagine a lump of iron the size of a tennis ball. Weigh it in your hand. Now let it drop on to your foot. How does that feel? Now imagine an identical object three times as dense. How would that feel if you dropped it? Would you ever walk again?
As well as being incredibly dense it is also incredibly hard and has the highest melting point of all the elements - 3,422C.
A century or so ago the world had no use for it - it was almost impossible to shape or work the stuff. Yet now we use tungsten to write with, to traverse glaciers, to emit X-rays and to destroy buildings without the use of explosives.”
“He says the bodies that are put inside the tombs, which are made of this stone, completely decompose in 40 days. We know that other ancient resources mention the fame of this type of stone. Thanks to these resources, we found out that magnificent tombs were made of this stone”—

“Oklahoma has had nearly double the number of earthquakes as California, localnews reported after five earthquakes on Thursday morning rattled an area of the state where oil and gas drilling is prevalent.
While California recorded 88 earthquakes of a magnitude 3.0 or greater this year, 174 of the same intensity have shaken Oklahoma. On Thursday, the region was hit by five quakes with magnitudes higher than 3.0 — the magnitude at which tremors can easily be felt, Oklahoma City’s KOCO news reported…
Seismologists have concluded that fracking — a process where water, sand and chemicals are shot underground at high pressure to release trapped oil and gas deposits — can cause small earthquakes.”
# 626....Bank of America 1985-86 Crisis ~ Saturn Return
POSTED June 5, 5:04 p.m., 2014
Saturn was in Scorpio during the BofA equity crises in the spring of 1985. By fall of 1986 (September 17), when the bank suffered a 2 billion dollar stock loss, transiting Saturn was at 4 Sagittarius 27’.
In this Saturn Return year huge fines and losses are big news for America’s 2nd largest bank.
“(Reuters) - Bank of America Corp could pay more than $12 billion to settle probes by the Justice Department and a number of states into the bank’s alleged handling of shoddy mortgages, the Wall Street Journal said on Thursday, citing people familiar with the negotiations.
At least $5 billion of that amount is expected to go toward consumer relief consisting of help for homeowners in reducing principal amounts and monthly payments, and paying for blight removal in struggling neighborhoods, the paper said, citing people with knowledge about the issue.”
“(Reuters) - An Alaska volcano that has been spewing ash and lava for years began erupting with new intensity this week, pushing a plume of smoke and ash as high as 24,000 feet (7,315 meters) and prompting scientists to issue their highest volcanic alert in five years, authorities said on Tuesday.
But the intense action at the Pavlof Volcano, located in an uninhabited region nearly 600 miles (966 km) southwest of Anchorage, has so far not disrupted any regional air traffic, thanks to favorable weather that has made it easier for flights to navigate around the affected area.
Still, the eruption was intense enough for Alaska Volcano Observatory scientists to issue their first red alert warning since 2009, when the state’s Mount Redoubt had a series of eruptions that spewed ash 50,000 feet (15,240 meters).”
“Around 9,000 years ago in Turkey’s Anatolian plains, a citizen of the Neolithic settlement of Çatalhöyük daubed a scene in red ochre on the wall of their adobe house.
The image is commonly thought to depict a village in the foreground, looked down upon by a twin-peaked volcano that is spewing an explosion of lava and rock into the sky. Dated to approximately 6200 BC, it is thought to be the world’s first landscape drawing. Some experts describe it as the first ever map. And the distinctive twin-peaked volcano is usually identified as Mount Hasan.”
The Bank of America faced major existential challenges in 1986 and 2008. On September 17, 1986, a run on the bank’s stock stripped it of $2 billion. In 2008, under a Full Moon on September 15, synchronizing the “Sub Prime” Credit Crisis, BofA acquired the deeply troubled Merrill Lynch. Eventually Merrill’s troubles shook BofA. During these two specific years, the events synchronized around the time of the Bank’s historic birthdays, with Sun in Libra.
As these 2008 events unfolded, my ASCENDANT ruler Venus, Sun ruler Mercury, and Mars all conjoined at 17 Libra. I was tuned in to events facing the BofA - had been since the spring of 1985.
This evening, I learned that the Bank of America name was taken on November 3, 1930. I stood stunned taking in the fact that my father, who died last April, was born on November 4, 1930. Both horoscopes are heavy with Cardinal influences; Moon in Aries, Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter and Pluto in Cancer, then Uranus in Aries. Over the decades that I have been ‘actively’ engaged with the Bank of America, have they been a proxy for my estranged relationship with my father?
From 1972, til his death in 2013, I did not spend a week in my father’s presence.
The awesome Cardinal ‘Grand Cosmic Cross’ filling the today’s Sky brings both man and bank into season. Jupiter, that penultimate planet symbol for growth, is returning.
“Some psychologists believe that synchronicities are places, people, or events that we attract into our lives to help us develop a higher level of awareness. So the more consciously aware you become, the higher your frequency becomes. Each day you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences, or synchronicities, that you have attracted into your lives.”—
By James FletcherBBC World Service, Narsaq, South Greenland
“Greenland’s economy relies on fishing and hunting, but the government has ambitious plans to develop the country’s resource industries. In places like Narsaq, there’s a fear that mining could destroy the environment and traditional ways of life.
Jens Erik Kirkegaard looks out across the smooth black water of Kangerluarsuk fjord to the snow dusted mountain rising steeply from the far shore. It’s a clear, cold day at the beginning of winter, and Greenland’s mining minister has his hands stuffed deep in a pair of seal-fur mittens to keep them warm.”
All humans are given birth by a mother to whom they can cling and identify with symbolically - a mother whose own essential roots extend into the soil out of which her body and the bodies of her offspring are derived. It is but a shaping wind that gives this soil its form. Thirty million South Africans have bodies composed of soil from one of the most lush and nurturing environments on Earth. The similarity ends here. It is immoral that access to South Africa’s nourishing soil is inequitably parceled out amongst South Africans and for 25 million (a full 81%) of these South Africans the very last teat providing the poorest quality and quantity milk is all that is available. This inequality names itself Apartheid, and the most central of all issues in South Africa is embodied in its policies.
America’s recent response to this reality that is Apartheid was a full Congressional override of a Presidential veto of economic sanctions. It was an expression of “the best ideals of the American people” (Senator Edward Kennedy). The House and the Senate resoundingly decided “whether we stand with the oppressed or the oppressor” (Senator Alan Cranston) consistent with the ideals of America’s founding fathers…
Americans too have found nourishment in South Africa’s soil. American Industry has nursed upon the source of South African mineral wealth for a good part of its modern history, building the body of an elaborate technological civilization from it. South African minerals are Talismen in America’s blood that constantly look homeward. If the American highways can be seen as veins, arteries, and nerves, then South Africa flows in all these through the cobalt, manganese, diamonds, platinum, and alloyed steels in automobiles, airplanes, advanced technologies, and even the jewelry adorning the members of this richest of countries.
It is absurd to think that with these deep connections, America could break its ties with South Africa so easily. When South Africa erupts from the strains she has been under and its metamorphosis occurs, paralleling transformations must also occur in America. The South African Talisman found in America has called with an increasingly demanding voice to Americans to open their eyes, holding up the hypocrisy in which they are now participating. America has taken its first step towards making a real stand on civil rights with this sanctions vote.
Two years [1984-1986] of watching the American drama in South Africa unfold has cleared this author’s eyes sufficiently to reveal a working pattern developing, like a map, read perhaps primarily from the U.S. perspective, but, at least, a baseline and useful as such. Many other important measurements can be made to this baseline from the South African position.
For readers who have followed past Earth Harvest columns focused on South Africa: Krugerrand: Symbol of Shame, Extension of Vision, and Earth Tyrant, The King Gone Bad, you are familiar with the approach of projecting the american horoscope upon Earth to show its geodetic emphasis through locational Astrology. Out of this projection comes a map, and out of this map, the discovery that an important horoscope pattern, the conjunction of the USA’s Venus and Jupiter, operates in the psycho-physical reality of South Africa. This puts U.S. interest in South Africa in a clear light and allows the American horoscope to be used as a tool for its measure.
Revealed was the impending transformation of America’s practice of procuring wealth and nourishment from developing foreign countries at the expense of their indigenous peoples. Further revealed was America’s fundamental problem with racism. The horoscope isolated two planetary symbols as key illuminators of the American story in South Africa, the interplay of The U.S. Venus and Jupiter.
We see Jupiter’s symbolism as immense deposits of Gold in Johannesburg (the geodetic line of Jupiter runs longitudinally just east of Johannesburg). Jupiter is seen in the evolution of a great religious leader, Archbishop Desmond Tutu of Capetown. Additional faces of the Jupiterian structure are: The deeply spiritual and political family groups such as the Calvinist Afrikaners and perhaps the most classic example, the rebellion of the school children of Johannesburg’s black suburb Soweto over the tyranny of learning their oppressor’s language. Links in place are supported by links in time, giving the geodetic map powerful possibilities for future use. The nearby presence of Venus [3 Cancer 05’] longitudinally to the Jupiter [5 Cancer 56’] position stamps a core-value on all these issues and makes them solid, tangible, indisputable reality. Major events in South Africa’s racial conflicts, starting for our purposes since the beginning of Apartheid, share significant and tightly patterned relationships to the U.S. Venus/Jupiter pattern [Jupiter being the U.S. Ascendant ruler]. The concern is for the near and distant consequences of all these events collectively…
But for America, if she continues on the path started by these new economic sanctions, the surprise will be met with a clear conscious and without the baggage of self-interest and hypocrisy.
