One year is the time it takes the Earth
to orbit once around the Sun.
Scientists define the year in seconds,
units of time measured
in oscillations of cesium atoms.
Some scientists have proposed
a new definition of ‘Year’
based on length of time between
one equinox or solstice
and the same equinox or solstice
a year later, tied to Y2K.
From a geological perspective,
90 million years ago implies
‘before the present time.’
Unfortunately, the present time
is not so well defined.
But however you measure it,
every year is shorter
than the one that came before it.
(paraphrased from NYT)
I think the political and social chaos
we’re seeing on every side,
reflects an underlying biologic crisis,
the end of the human line…

Great post, Funk!
That chart you directed me to was very interesting. He’s just about to have another Jupiter return which maybe gives him teflon vestments.
His native retrograde Sagittarius Saturn is the planetary archetype representing his push backwards toward more conservative Catholic dogma. I think I read somewhere that Saturn in Sagittarius can also represent narrow-mindeness.
As a Plutophile, I think one of the most interesting things in his chart, is the upcoming transit of Pluto opposing his native Pluto. According to my version of Robert Hand’s 1976 ‘Planets In Transit’, “this transit occurs at a time that is beyond the normal life expectancy”. Hand offers no further description.
This is a result of Pluto’s rapid transit through Scorpio, which accelerated the onset of some Pluto transits for current generations.
Jupiter might protect him in the short term, but by the time he turns 87, in 2014, he’ll have his Saturn return, Black Moon Lilith return, and his Pluto opposite Pluto. I reckon those are very difficult transits for a leader in his position with Saturn in Sagittarius.
As far as the sordid actions of the dissembling catholic infrastructure…I think the comment in my Funky Astrology group resonates..Funk quoted a prediction:
“BENEDICT IS THE PENULTIMATE POPE”
IS SENDING YOU
BLESSINGS AND PROTECTION.
I think this is a fascinating topic. In natal charts I studied
for children born after 1993, many are dyslexic
or are having trouble with reading.
Individually they tend to have Mercury Sun conjunctions,
combined with 3rd House activity.
As a group, however, I attribute the dyslexic tendencies
to a shift from left-brain thinking to right-brain thinking.
I think this evolutionary brain-shift was activated
by the Neptune Uranus conjunction from around 1993.
The internet was publicly emerging in 1993.
According to Marshall McLuhan,
the internet will engender a shift away from
left-to-right eye movements in reading
and a move toward up-and-down eye movements.
According to McLuhan, this in turn will create
a mass shift away from the Western emphasis
on the temporal realities of the left brain.
The shift to right brain thinking
is the foundation of world peace,
and one of the key elements
of the coming Aquarian age.
To me, the generation born after 1993
have a right brain bias that is wired for future success.
Did I read your profile right?
You’re a Virgox4 with a Scorpius Rising?!?
*handing you an offering of a Rhoomba,
desk organizer, and a book on grammar*
many thanks for the offerings…
I need all the help I can get
keeping track of the details.
A billion is a thousand million,
and a trillion is a thousand billion.
That’s 10 to the 12th power,
or 1 followed by 12 zeros.
Without all those atoms, however,
there would be no matter.
Glad you’re OK. I always intuited
that if the waters inundated Manhattan,
I’d be validicated for living in the BX…
(the highest elevation in the boroughs).
Haven’t been to work all week,
but had a lil medical treatment last Friday
that was kinda intense,
so I’ve been happy for the rest.
Blog tip re embedding was just the ticket.
Still not that moved to write too much
(which is the blog’s raison d’etre)
but I have posted topical vids and poetry.
Facebook is indeed a strange creature.
I deleted my account about a year ago
after two or three years,
and don’t miss it that much.
I’ve had a fleeting urge to reactivate
my twitter accounts
now I have a smart phone,
but I have such a sassy
and impetuous tongue
that my higher self has restrained me
from memorializing any pithy rejoinders.
(Thus far lol.) Sending Blessings, J
