Money vs "money-energy" - an astrological explanation of the crisis


Has ever occurred to you – under the stress of the titanic financial crisis we are actually facing – the thought that at some point we might be left without money (for all kinds of reasons, out of a bank failure for example)? The thought that money might dry up in society, ending in the pockets and safes of those privileged ultra-rich (who are making now enormous profits out of this crisis)? It feels like a nightmare! How are we going to feed ourselves and our family, how are we going to survive if money disappears?

Well, first of all we should ask ourselves: is money that important to us or are there some other things far more important and valuable than money itself (I am not referring here to concepts like health)? And ultimately, what is “money”? Because definitely it is not what most of us think it is! Many of you will be surprised to find out that the true “money” is invisible!

Money is ruled in astrology by the signs of Taurus and Scorpio! These two signs represent (each in his own way) the survival instict and have to do with the most basic and fundamental needs of us human beings. No wonder then that money touches some very particular cords in us. It has to do with our sense of security and stability, with our sense of personal “power” and self-esteem and with certain deep and intense psychological processes within our souls. Taurus’ money is supposed to be the one we earn out of our job and we have in our pockets, bank accounts, safes. Scorpio’s money is – to put it simply – the “other peoples’ money”! It comes to us through third sources (marriage, inheritances, loans, gambling, stock market etc.). But there is more to it…

First of all we have to define what “money” actually is. Money should be something precious, because it can buy us any vital, useful and precious thing we want. Thus, it should have an inherent VALUE in it. In astrology the concept of VALUE is represented by the sign of Taurus. Here we are then! Money is a Taurus thing, it has a “Taurus nature” in it. Well, at least partially, because the nature of money is more intricate than that.

If your idea of money is the currency, the paper banknotes we usually carry in our pockets, then you should indeed worry that some day money might dry up and disappear! The corporations, the ultra-rich people might accumulate most of these banknotes – especially in the current crisis where the rich get ever richer – and consequently money will vanish from the wider society and from our pockets as well. Is this possible?

  1. Lesson of The Great Depression

    The machines stand patiently
    ready to act on human command.
    Workers expectantly arise
    to resume their duties.
    Tools, systems, routes, logistics
    lined up for service.
    Plants to sow and reap; structures
    to build, maintain, repair, replace;
    commodities to be united with
    their markets; music to be played;
    enchanting murals to paint;
    shows that must go on; coffee
    to be made; errands to run;
    endless activities and professions
    imposing order on entropy.
    Teach the curious,
    heal the sick or broken,
    enforce the law,
    tend to the poor.
    Society's capillaries clogged by
    a powerful voodoo. All is
    needing to be done, but stopped
    dead or cancerously
    receding from living
    for want of the magic beans,
    the mysterious force of money,
    a social construct gone mad,
    constricting the flow of life.
