Godzilla: A Mythological Motif of the Emerging Uranus-Pluto Complex Within the Collective Unconcscious

“The collective unconscious…appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious. We can see this most clearly if we look at the heavenly constellations, whose originally chaotic forms are organized through the projection of images. This explains the influence of the stars as asserted by astrologers. These influences are nothing but unconscious, introspective perceptions of the collective unconscious.”
– Carl G. Jung

UrPL Graph

The general tenor of Uranus-Pluto alignments is revolution – the Dionysian (Pluto) impulse for revolutionary empowerment, Promethean (Uranus) thrust for radical change and innovative reform to establish a new order. Uranus-Pluto alignments have historically correlated with periods of social breakdown and the collapse of old forms and structures as potent instinctual forces emerge from within the collective that are stronger than the existing power structure to contain it.

Scholar, author, and cultural historian Richard Tarnas has stated that the Uranus-Pluto planetary alignments have historically correlated with “widespread radical and political social change and often destructive upheaval, massive empowerment of revolutionary and rebellious impulses, and intensified artistic and intellectual creativity.”  Also, “unusually rapid technological advance, an underlying spirit of restless experiment, drive for innovation, urge for freedom in many realms, revolt against oppression, embrace of radical political philosophies, and intensified collective will to bring forth a new world.”  (pp. 143-144, Cosmos & Psyche).

Since the emergence of the Uranus-Pluto Square alignment in early 2007 we have been witnessing the continued intensification and acceleration of geopolitical breakdown among many nations throughout the world and a dramatic contraction of the global economy that will ultimately lead to a radical reconfiguration of the global monetary system and geopolitical power structure between now and 2020.

It is clear from the opening of the Godzilla film trailer that the world is under some form of attack with escalating death and destruction all around. Also, there is little known about the cause, something that nuclear physicist and former nuclear engineer Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston) is determined to uncover. As, like scientist Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) explains, nature has a way to restore balance, the prehistoric alpha predator reveals itself from the ocean depths and engages mankind in an epic titanic battle for the ages. The film trailer and the subject matter of the film well illustrates the destructive archetypal power and potency of the Uranus-Pluto complex that has been constellating among the global collective with greater momentum, intensity, and force since the Mayan Calendar End Date in late 2012.  [Read also The Meaning of the Mayan Calendar End Date Within the Context of Modern Astrology, December 4, 2012].

“Frankly, none of us have ever faced a situation like quite like this one before. I would not be asking any one of you to take this leap if I did not have complete faith in your ability to succeed. Your courage will never be more needed than it is today.”
-Admiral Stenz (David Strathairn), Godzilla

“You’re not fooling anybody when you say that what happened was a “natural disaster,”. You’re lying! It was not an earthquake, it wasn’t a typhoon! Because what’s really happening is that you’re hiding something out there! And it is going to send us back to the Stone Age! God help us all…”
– Joe Brody, Nuclear Engineer (Bryan Cranston), Godzilla

Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: “In 1954, we awakened something.”
Dr. Vivienne Graham: “So there were nuclear tests in the Pacific? Not nuclear tests?”
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa: “They were trying to kill it.”

“I’m not crazy. Whatever it is that they are guarding so carefully, I need to be able prove that it is real.”
– Joe Brody, Nuclear Engineer (Bryan Cranston), Godzilla

The Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index (graph below)  is the sum of all the angular distances between the pairs of the outer planets, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The Cyclic Index has proven to be one of the most accurate predictive tools for mundane astrologers for determining  economic growth and political relations among nations.  According to astrologer Andre Barbault, the sum waxing phase (ascending line) of each planetary pair was considered periods of stability and evolution (constructive growth, development, expansive, progressive with optimism and diplomacy ) while the waning phase (descending line)  are periods of crises and involution (contraction, decay, recession, pessimism, war and destruction).

Godzilla 2014

The Cyclic Index peaked in the Spring of 2014,  during the time Godzilla was released into theaters May 8, 2014 during the Grand Cardinal Cross acting as a archetypal  agent-provocateur on the world stage .  The next Uranus-Pluto square alignments will occur on December 15th and again on March 15th 2015.  During this period, Mars will enter Aries and conjunct Uranus and square Pluto.  This highly dangerous planetary combination augurs titanic power plays, territorial takeovers, intense strategy discussions and intelligence planning, often coinciding with a wave of social and political unrest, along with accelerating market volatility, bank panics, and often unexpected and sudden economic failure.

The final Uranus-Pluto alignment in March 2015 occurs during which time the Cyclic Index makes its precipitous downward plunge, descending 497 points from its peak in May of 2014 at 996 to 456 in March 2022. Indicating that we are heading into a perilous period where the “damage control” that was put into place by the governments  from the 2008 financial crisis global and the 2011 Fukushima nuclear crisis, will begin to wear-off  where things become surreal and fraught with “high strangeness” as civilization undergoes a period of profound crisis as we witness the collapse of unsustainable and untenable systems of  governance, finance, ecology and economy.

The First Christmas Celebration – 336 A.D. in Rome

The first Christmas celebration by the early Christian Church occurred 331 years after Christ’s Crucifixion in Jerusalem – April 3rd, 33 A.D. (during the Lunar Eclipse at 5:12 PM LMT) and Pentecost –  which is considered to be the inception date of the Roman Catholic Church. In an old list of Roman bishops, compiled in 354 A.D. these words appear for 336 A.D.: “25 Dec.: natus Christus in Betleem Judeae.” Translation: December 25th, Christ born in Bethlehem, Judea.

Iulius_I

Pope Julius I – the bishop of Rome (from 6 February 337 to his death in 352), declared the nativity celebration of Christ on December 25th because it coincided with the pagan tradition of Winter Solstice.

First Christmas Celebration Rome - 336 A.D.

Above is the  horoscope of the first Christmas celebration that occurred in Rome on December 25th  336 A.D. during the first Mass upon sunrise 7:30 AM Local Mean Time. Many Christian symbols for Christ use the astrological symbol for Pisces,the fish. The twelve apostles were called the “fishers of men,” and early Christians called themselves “little fishes,” and a code word for Jesus was the Greek word for fish, “Ikhthus.” The first Christmas Celebration by the early Church occurred within 40 years of the precessional shift into the sign of Pisces that occurred in the late 3rd Century in 292 A.D. which was the last year that Sun last rose in the constellation of Aries in both the tropical and sidereal zodiac at the Spring Equinox.

Note: The Edict of Milan, an agreement to treat Christians benevolently within the Roman Empire occurred in February 312 A.D.,  20 years after the precessional shift into the sign of Pisces.

AGE OF PISCES BEGINS - AGE OF ARIES ENDS

Note: Many modern and church historians are in agreement that Christ began his ministry during the month of October in 29 A.D. -“Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is Near”, during in the 15th year of the Emperor Tiberius’ reign. This satisfies the statement in Luke 3:23 “And when He began his ministry, Jesus Himself was about thirty years of age…”  Also 2nd Century Christian scholars, such as Irenaaus, said that Jesus “was beginning to be about thirty years of age” [Against Heresies h, II, xxii, 5]. The generally assumed date range for when John the Baptist was active, based on the reference to the reign of Tiberius in Luke 3:1-2, is from about 28-29 A.D., with Jesus beginning to preach shortly thereafter.  Based on the reference in John 2:13 to the Temple being in its 46th year of construction, scholarly estimates for Jesus’ Temple visit in John 2:20 are around 28-29 A.D., when Jesus was “about thirty years of age”. By working backwards from this, it would appear that Jesus was born in 3 B.C.

Christianizaton of Northern Europe

When the Christianization of the Germanic peoples began, missionaries found it convenient to provide a Christian reinterpretation of popular pagan holidays such as Yule and allow the celebrations themselves to go on largely unchanged, versus trying to confront and suppress them. The Scandinavian tradition of slaughtering a pig at Christmas (Christmas ham) is probably salient evidence of this. The tradition is thought to be derived from the sacrifice of boars to the god Freyr at the Yule celebrations. Halloween and aspects of Easter celebrations are likewise assimilated from northern European pagan festivals.

Pope Gregory I
English historian Bede’s Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum contains a letter from Pope Gregory I (Pope from 3 September 590 to his death in 604) to Saint Mellitus, who was then on his way to England to conduct missionary work among the pagan Anglo-Saxons. Pope Gregory I, suggested that converting heathens would go easier if they were allowed to retain the outward forms of their traditional pagan practices and traditions, while recasting those traditions spiritually towards the Christian God instead of to their pagan “devils”: “to the end that, whilst some gratifications are outwardly permitted them, they may the more easily consent to the inward consolations of the grace of God”.

Yule Time Celebration

Christmas as we know it today is essentially a fusion of ancient pagan practices and several hundred hundreds of years of adopting secular and religious traditions. For many of the symbols and motifs associated with the modern holiday of Christmas are derived from traditional pagan northern European Yule celebrations. The burning of the Yule log, the decorating of Christmas trees, the eating of ham, the hanging of boughs, holly, mistletoe, etc. are all historically practices associated with Yule.

JulNorway: Jul

The main Jul event for Norwegians is on Julaften on December 24th, the evening of the main feast, is served and gifts are exchanged. Almost all Norwegian breweries produce traditional beer, juleøl, and a special soda, julebrus. Jul dishes are also served on Julebord, where people from work gather around early December to feast and drink alcoholic beverages. Also, seven types of cookies, julekaker, traditionally baked by the mother of the house, are prepared. There is also the Julebukk or Nyttårsbukk tradition of which it is common for children to pay visits to neighbours where they are given candy, nuts and clementines. The children may dress up and go out every day between Juleaften and New Year’s Eve. Adults, as well, dress up later in the evening and Drammebukk by paying visits to neighbors in much the same way as the children, but the main difference is that adults are given drinks instead of candy.

Juletræ and sing Christmas carolsDenmark: Jul

In Denmark, Jul is celebrated on December 24, which is referred to as Juleaftensdag. An elaborate dinner is eaten with the family consisting of either roast pork, roast duck or roast goose with potatoes, red cabbage and gravy. For dessert rice pudding is served, traditionally with an almond hidden inside. The lucky finder of this almond is entitled to a small gift. After the meal is complete, the family gather around the Juletræ and sing Christmas carols. When the singing is complete, the children often hand out the presents. They are opened and this is followed by candy, chips, different kind of nuts, clementines and sometimes the traditionally Gløgg (mulled and spiced wine with almonds and raisins), which is served hot in small cups. (Source: Wikipedia)

julaftonSweden: Jul

As in many other countries in northern Europe, Jultomten brings the presents on julafton (Yule Eve), December 24, the day generally thought of as the main Jul day. Many swedes watch Kalle Anka och hans vänner, a compilation of Disney films. Almost all Swedish families celebrate with a julbord. The common part of almost all julbord is the julskinka (baked ham). The julbord is served with beer or julmust and snaps, the dishes of the julbord may vary throughout Sweden. Businesses traditionally invite their employees to a julbord dinner or lunch the weeks beforehand, and people go out privately to restaurants offering julbord during December, as well. Swedes also enjoy glögg like in many other countries of Scandinavia. After the julbord, the presents are distributed, either by Jultomten or a family member, and usually from a sack or from under the Christmas tree where they have been laying all day or for several days. In older days a julbock (yule goat) was an alternative to Jultomten, nowadays it is used as an ornament, ranging from sizes of 10 cm to huge constructions like the Gävle goat. The next morning, some people attend the julotta, an early morning church service on jul day. (Source: Wikipedia)

HogmanayShetland Islands: Yules

In the Shetland Islands of Scotland the Yules are considered to last a month beginning on December 18th and ending January 18th. The main Yules celebration occurs in between, on December 31st. The rest of Scotland eventually adopted “Hogmanay” (the name of the New Years presents) as the festival’s name. (Source: Wikipedia)

Neopaganism

Neopaganism

As forms of Neopaganism can be quite different and have very different origins, these representations can vary considerably despite the shared name. Some celebrate in a manner as close as possible to how they believe that the Ancient Germanic pagans observed the tradition, while others observe the holiday with rituals culled from numerous other unrelated sources, Germanic culture being only one of the sources used. (Source: Wikipedia)

Asatru Folk AssemblyGermanic neopaganism: Yule

In Germanic Neopagan sects, Yule is celebrated with gatherings that often involve a meal and gift giving. Further attempts at reconstruction of surviving accounts of historical celebrations are often made, a hallmark being variations of the traditional. However, it has been pointed out that this is not really reconstruction as these traditions never died out – they have merely removed the superficial Christian elements from the celebrations. Groups such as the Asatru Folk Assembly in the U.S. recognize the celebration as lasting for 12 days, beginning on the date of the winter solstice. (Source: Wikipedia)

Wassiling

Wicca: Yule

In general, many Wiccan based sects favor a plethora of sources on winter solstice holidays to recreate a type of Yule holiday. While the name “Yule” is used, it is not a reconstruction of the historical holiday. Wreaths, Yule logs, decoration of trees, decorating with mistletoe, holly, and ivy, exchanges of presents, and even wassailing are incorporated and regarded as sacred. The return of the Sun as Frey is commemorated in some groups. In most Wiccan sects, this holiday is also celebrated as the rebirth of the Great God, who is viewed as the newborn solstice sun. (Source: Wikipedia)

Crockpot WassailWassail is a hot beverage of mulled punch associated with Yuletide. Historically, the drink was a mulled cider made with sugar, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and topped with slices of toast. Modern recipes begin with a base of wine, fruit juice, or mulled ale, sometimes with brandy or sherry added. Apples or oranges are often added to the mix. While the beverage typically served as “wassail” at modern holiday feasts with a medieval theme most closely resembles mulled cider, historical wassail drinks were completely different, more likely to be mulled beer, or mead. Sugar, ale, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon would be placed in a bowl, heated, and topped with slices of toast. Some recipes also call for beaten eggs to be tempered into the drink. (Source: Wikipedia)

The Wassail Song (traditional English)

Here we come a-wassailing
among the leaves so green.
Here we come a-wand’ring
so fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
and to all your wassail, too,
may the gods bless you, and send you
a Happy New Year,
the gods send you a Happy New Year.

Good master and good mistress,
as you sit beside the fire,
pray think of us poor children
who wander through the mire.
Love and joy come to you,
and to all your wassail, too,
may the gods bless you, and send you
a Happy New Year,
the gods send you a Happy New Year.

Bring us out a table fine
and spread it out with cloth;
Bring us out a farmer’s cheese,
and some of your Christmas loaf.
Love and joy come to you,
and to all your wassail, too,
may the gods bless you, and send you
a Happy New Year,
the gods send you a Happy New Year.

Oak King battling Holly King

Druids: Oak King Battling Holly King

On the Solstice, druids would gather by the oldest Mistletoe clad Oak. The Chief Druid would make his way to the mistletoe to be cut whilst below, other Druids would hold open a sheet to catch it, making sure none of it touched the ground. With his Golden Sickle, and in one chop, the Chief Druid would remove the mistletoe, to be caught below.
The early Christian church banned the use of mistletoe because of its association with Druids. The holiday is observed in a manner that commemorates the death of the Holly King identified with the wren bird (symbolizing the old year and the shortened sun) at the hands of his son and successor, the robin redbreast Oak King (the new year and the new sun that begins to grow) (Farrar & Farrar [1989] 1998: 35-38). The Battle of the Holly King and Oak King is re-enacted at rituals, both open and closed. The battle is usually in the form of words but it has been known fo there to be sword battles. The scene above depicts The Oak Kings final strike against his brother, The Holly King and to ultimate victory, at least for the next six months. (Source: Wikipedia)

The Uranus-Pluto “Krakatoa” Type Of Event Has Already Begun

Russia Horoscope
As of today all the financial derivatives based off the Russian Ruble are in chaos and reeling from the MASSIVE Black Swan move in rates. Many FX exchanges have already shutdown US Dollar/Ruble trading.  This WILL BECOME a HUGE problem for anyone with derivative positions in the Russian Ruble. The ramifications of this will not be be seen until mid-January as the derivative losses start to mount.

Many financial astrologers  are talking about how its similar to the Russia default and crash of ‘98 all over again… but what most of them don’t know it is actually worse.  MUCH WORSE!

Why?

Because the shear speed and scale of the current collapse, that began exactly on the penultimate Uranus-Pluto alignment, which is a magnitude greater, will simply accelerate and magnify the effect due to the utter absence of liquidity, and by the political stakes at play.

BiWheel Russia with Uranus-Pluto

Based on both the secular events and trends and the financial Blackbox forecast based on the Russian horoscope, it is clear that the 8th largest economy on the entire planet is in a state of turmoil right now. The fact that the price of oil has declined by almost 50% since June is absolutely catastrophic for the Russian economy. Then when you throw in international sanctions by the United States and the NATO nations, along with the massive level money printing by the Central Bank of Russia and unprecedented and absolutely staggering pace of capital flight occurring, you get the ingredients for a perfect storm.

Russia Money Black Box
Conclusion: What is occurring now in Russia will soon have terrible repercussions to all of Europe. The implications between now and the final Uranus-Pluto Square alignment 2015 augur an extremely hostile and volatile economic climate that will not be confined within Russia’s borders. This event is just a prelude to the great unraveling as exchange rate volatility continues to increase, leading the way to systemic debt contagion that will spread around the entire world.

Japan: Abegeddon In Progress

Based on the mundane astrological portents (using Blackbox forecasting technology) to Japan’s national horoscope of forecast that the continuation of ‘Abenomics’ (the economic program of Prime Minister Abe), a program of money printing and debt-funded spending to lift Japan from two decades of deflation and stagnation, will not only fail, but will bring disaster for the island nation, resulting ultimately in a inflationary depression during the second half of 2015.

Note: The yen, now at 120 to the U.S. dollar, has already lost about a third of its value in the past two years under Prime Minister Abe. Also, the economy contracted in three of the last four quarters, with little growth in exports and weak consumption despite the stimulus, which includes the central bank buying assets worth more than 10 percent of the economy.

2014 Louisiana Senate Race – Cassidy vs. Landrieu: December 6th Runoff

2014 Louisiana Senate Race – Cassidy (R) vs. Landrieu (D)*

midterm-elections-2014_louisiana-senate-runoff

Senator Mary Landrieu actually edged out GOP Representative Bill Cassidy on Election Day, 42%-41% percent, a difference of just over 16,000 votes. But Tea Party candidate Rob Maness, who finished with 14% of the vote, is campaigning for Cassidy now. Although the Louisiana Senator is now considered the Underdog according to oddsmakers, Landrieu claims she has a path to victory in her Dec. 6 runoff. However, her GOP Opponent is so confident he has the race in hand that he’s only agreed to debate Landrieu once, instead of the six encounters Landrieu wants. So the political contest horary question is, despite the odds and the recent GOP mid-term election victories:

“Does Mary Landrieu have a prayer?”

Based the horary testimonies the answer is a resounding NO!

The testimonies of the political contest horary snapshot, taken November 16th, 2014 at 07:36 pm PST in San Francisco, CA,  point to a decisive victory for the GOP on December 6th.

Cassidy Campaign – The Favorite: 1st House
Landrieu Campaign – The Underdog: 7th House
U.S. Senate Seat – The Prize: 10th House
The Moon: The Lousisana Electorate and remaining Undecided Voters
