Could a belief and use of astrology be part of the basis for expectations expressed by George Soros that class war, riots and a possible police state crackdown were coming to America?
Nothing conclusive. But I stumbled across some articles online today that have me wondering what - if any - role astrological advisers play in recent events both political and financial.
First, there's this Internet post that tries to interpret astrologically an earlier comment from Mr. Soros:
Does astrological analysis support the June 10, 2010 statement by billionaire investor George Soros that "...we have just entered Act II" of the global financial crisis? Certainly Europe's fiscal woes have worsened. And the curbing of of budget deficits by governments may push the global economy back into recession."Then, there was a blog at Beliefnet.com discussing the timing and energy of Occupy Wall Street:
Organizers of the movement say they were inspired by the Arab Spring in which a surge of revolutionary fervor, driven by the approaching square of Uranus in Aries (the revolutionary warrior) to Pluto in Capricorn (the power of the economic structures), resulted in the downfall of Arab leaders in several countries. But while the Occupy Wall Street people were inspired by the Uranus/Pluto square, they no longer have the wind at their back since the square is waning and the energy is fading.
Another post on an site called PlanetWaves.net attempts to tie 2012's astrological signs to those of 1848, a time of great unrest when revolution swept Europe.
Again, I'm not acting as an advocate for astrology.
My question is, are the architects (at least some of them) of today's progressive politics and so-called democracy movements actively involved in consulting the stars as they make prognostications and move their agendas forward?
