Prediction On Violence In Chicago Fulfilled
Seeking to test the veracity of this Asc Sign, I then sought out other key times in Chicago's history where crime waves were prevelant, and found that in each instance, the Cancer Asc came through quite forcefully. Satisfied that my researches were indeed valid and working, I then wrote the following:
"Prediction: Chicago’s Crime Wave Escalates Over Next Two Years
With an established astro-pattern of crime and violence for Chicago, the short term future for the city does not look bright. Beginning in the Fall of 2009 we can expect the crime rate to rise, yet again in the Windy City, as transit Mars enters Cancer yet again, conjuncting the Chicago noontime Asc, at the same time that transit Pluto has been moving in and out of orb range in opposition to that same all-important Asc Sign and degree. SA Mars=MC Dec 2009, while transit Mars in Leo, slowing down to prepare to go Rx, squares Chicago’s Saturn.
Then, beginning in Jan of 2010 and continuing throughout the first half of the year, we note that transit Saturn will square, and transit Pluto will oppose, the Chicago Asc, while transit Mars, now Rx in Leo, moves to square the city’s Saturn and oppose the city’s Moon, in Jan and again in May of that year. The key period may very well be Apr-Jun 2010, when SA Pluto=Saturn comes into focus. The city administration will be stretched to its limits in its efforts to stem the tide of murder and mayhem on the Windy City’s streets."
'Nuff said, indeed.
However, what I didn't say in my original article, was that the source of the current problems in Chi-Town are easily seen in its chart...
In our astrology, the Moon and Saturn represents the parents - mom and dad, respectively. In the Chicago chart, we note that the Moon is in Aquarius - the eptiome of the "singlemom" - and is in tight square to Saturn (and applying to boot!), which is itself Rx, in Scorpio. And, as if to yet again validate the noontime mark chosen for this chart, note how Saturn is placed in the 5 house (kids, youth), while the Moon occupies the 8 house (death).
We astrologers know and understand very well, that whenever we see either the Lights, or in this case, Luna and Saturn, in hard aspect to each other, that the native's chances of experiencing strained relations between his/her parents are quite high. Furthermore, we also know, that when Saturn is Rx in the horoscope, the chances of the native experiencing the painful absence of his/her father in some major way, is quite high indeed.
All manner of sociological study have shown what happens when there are no fathers in the home - the kids left behind are almost always are significantly highly risk for all manner of social pathologies, including running afoul of the law, teenage pregnancy and promiscuity, and involvement in crime. Simply put, as Larry Elder says so well, more Dads, less crime.
As local and national authorities attempt to grapple with Chicago's crippling crimewave, it remains to be seen whether any of them are willing to skewer the Sacred Cows of Political Correctness and say that we need to restore Patriarchy back to its proper place in Society. Matriarchal-based families, by and large, dont work - not only that, they are often deadly, as recent events in Chi-Town have shown. How many more young people - particularly young Black Males - will we need to loose before we see that the PC Emperors have no clothes?
