August 23, 2012 - The Mighty Shall Fall: The mighty battleship Bismarck set sail on May 19, 1941 to the cheers of top echelon dignitaries, including Adolf Hitler. At the time, she was the most powerful and fearsome ship afloat. In a titanic sea battle, Bismarck sunk the H.M.S Hood and killed over 1,800 men. Little did the Third Reich realize that her days were numbered and her death was near. Bi-planes from the aircraft carrier, “Swordfish” would disable her rudder, enabling the pursuing British ships to “kill” Bismarck with “death by a thousand cuts.”
The astrological chart for the sailing reveals many flaws in the time of launch, something Hitler should have known about if he had an astrologer on the “payroll.” The “fated” North Node was conjunct Neptune (ruling the Sea) and mighty Zeus (a Uranian hypothetical planet – ruling fires and explosions) was square Saturn (ruling bad endings). With Jupiter (ruler of luck and good fortune) conjunct her natal Sun (ruling the essence of the ship); things looked grand and glorious when she set sail on that fated day in May.
The lesson here is never take any think for granted, because what starts out with a flourish can end in total and complete abysmal failure. The parallel is reflected in the U.S. Government economic stimulus packages, all of which started out grand and glorious, but failed. Now, the U.S. Stock market, and other asset prices, will go down like the Bismarck; in chaos, war and economic and social collapse.
