In "Money & Debt, A Solution To The Global Crisis," author Thomas H. Greco, Jr., stresses that the world has changed and local community interaction is the key to future prosperity in today's unraveling economy.  Greco goes on to say reduction of our independence on banks and the fiat system is necessary and to do so, we must organize private exchange systems that can be networked together.

What could be more perfect than for communities across the United States to begin to build a barter system on the day that Jupiter turns direct in motion!  Talk it up over Christmas dinner, get into discussions about the looming financial catastrophe and the means by which your families can survive it...because the iceberg is dead ahead.

Barter is ruled by JUPITER - URANUS - VENUS
Jupiter turns direct in motion on Dec. 25, 2011 @ 0* Taurus 22'...Merry Christmas!  Jupiter will trine USA Venus @ 3* Cancer 06' on Feb. 4, 2012, presenting an opportunity to set up a barter network from the day of direct motion on Dec. 25, 2011 up to Feb. 4, 2012.  Uranus turns direct on Dec. 10, 2012 @ 0* Aries 38' and will be applying to a square of USA Venus into Feb. 2012.  Squares are a determinant to action, put the energies to good use.

Barter systems are not anything new, but they usually appear after economic collapse occurs, when people are less able to produce a viable method of obtaining the goods and foods they require.  The wiser course of action is to begin building barter networks now so as to minimize the effects of an economic/financial crisis and to maintain your independence from a system in its death spiral.  

To begin:  Make a list of your talents and items to be traded.  If you can sew, offer to make clothing items or to hem slacks.  If you can construct things, offer to trade repair work.  If you have a vehicle, offer transportation for medical care, etc.

Next:  Create a flyer listing your talents and possessions to be traded and circulate them in your your church, at the supermarket, in your local library.

It is never too late to become proficient in a skill.  Seek an elder who has the knowledge that you seek or search the internet for ideas, for how-to lessons or go to your library and search reference books or have intra-library loan order the books required.

Most of all, be at peace while the world is in transition, for the upheaval is a blessing in disguise.

VIRGO RISES...ruler Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius in the 3rd house, along with the New Moon Eclipse, which is square Mars in Virgo, highlighting the functioning of our minds on a normal, day-to-day level, the purpose being the need to deal with everyday existence...the square of Mars suggesting tremendous stress in doing so.  As the 1st house rules the people and its ruler is retrograde, it describes the citizens as being in unhealthy circumstances.

Focus of the eclipse is on 3rd house matters; with the square to Mars we are looking at a clamp down on freedoms via the transit system and all methods of communications, as the public will be dealing with a petty scheming and plotting mentality.

Sagittarius is on the 4th house cusp (ruling real estate, agriculture, weather) and will be highly influenced by this eclipse, which is adrift in the Scorpio-ruled 3rd house...a warning to take what you hear from the media with a grain of salt.  Jupiter, ruler of the Sagittarius eclipse, is retrograde in Taurus in the 8th house, in inconjunct aspect to it.  Jupiter rules journalists and reporters, who will be putting a spin on things monetary going forward.  Take heed and be your own counsel.

A negative Sagittarius influence alludes to a tendency to venture outward, to seek beyond the self.  It induces a lack of purpose and shallowness of mind in how daily living is approached.  Original thinking in large concepts tends to morph into that which is trite.  The message of this Solar Eclipse is to know where you stand in the scheme of things, for unless a person can know themselves, all else that may be learned in life would be of no use.  It is the inner person that is most important, that provides that which is necessary for life.  Rather than make the mistake of an outward journey, one must look within.

The lunation trine retrograde Uranus in the 7th house brings with it a sudden turn of events involving dealings with the public in general that will cause those involved to rebel against D.C. dictates.  More than likely the OWS movement and exciting new ideas that bring a fresh perspective.

Grand Trine in Earth signs: Jupiter in Taurus, associated with bankers, Mars in Virgo, associated with natural resources, and Pluto in Capricorn, associated with business.  Earth signs find their expression in the material realm, enjoying organization and security.  I read this for America as criminal action (Mars in 12th house) by the banking industry (retrograde Jupiter in 8th house) which will reap tremendous rewards for the chosen few (grand trine) as oligarchy digs its roots deeper in our very foundations (Pluto in Capricorn in 4th house).

Mars, also adrift in the Leo-ruled 12th house, is separating from an opposition to Neptune in the 6th house, indicating unemployment data has been skewed.  This planetary combination is indicative of a toxic type aggression, a seething anger waiting to be unleashed that could manifest in unconstitutional police action against the populace. 

Come away, O human child,
To the waters and the wild with a fairy, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Data:  November 10, 2011 @ 3:17 p.m. - Washington, D.C.

The November Full Moon for the USA straddles the cusps of the money houses...what a surprise, lol...while the financial planet, Jupiter, retrogrades in Taurus insisting that folks get a grip on their sense of values.  The Full Moon brings to fruition what the New Moon promised, as I wrote:  " The focus of this New Moon is debt, taxes, entitlements and welfare."  Cancer on the 4th house cusp highlights homelessness wrought by financial criminality that to this day goes unpunished.

Aries Rises, ruler Mars on the last degree of Leo, conjoined the Fixed Star Regulus, separating from an opposition to Neptune, which stationed direct in motion on November 9th, warning that the crisis cannot be averted...and while Regulus is often a blessing, under the influence of an opposition to Neptune and inconjunct to retrograde Uranus, both in the 12th house, material poverty and outward misery may well be the outcome.  Although everyone will be touched in some manner, those who have followed their intuition and lived prudently, preparing for difficult times while the unwary have lived it up need not share their suffering.  Open your hearts and share the largesse you have accumulated towards those who are innocent due to harsh life circumstances, for you are your brother's keeper.

Lives of great men all remind us
  We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
  Footprints on the sands of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
  Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
  Seeing, shall take heart again.
A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Dutchsince has this date reported spotting plumes at the New Madrid region...he states:  "The last time plumes appeared, in California/Nevada, a 6.0 happened to the south of the area within two weeks of the plumes venting from the ground...visit his site at

Taking a look at planetary activity, transiting Jupiter conjoined natal Moon = plumes...transiting Pluto (volcanoes, earthquakes) is in the 4th house (foundations) trine natal Moon in Taurus along with transiting Jupiter and approaching a square to natal Uranus in Libra.

As the Pluto/Uranus square tends toward massive alterations, we may very well be watching the precursor to a seismic event at the New Madrid region.

If you live east of the NMSZ and your supplier of cat food ships from the west side of the zone...stock up now.
"I put down my book, The Meaning of Zen, and see the cat smiling into her fur as she delicately combs it with her rough pink tongue.
Cat, I would lend you this book to study but it appears you have already read it.
She looks up and gives me her full gaze.
Don't be ridiculous, she purrs, I wrote it.
