    Blessed are..

    ....the pure in heart: for they will see God.

    ....those who hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they will be filled.

    ....the peacemakers: for they will be called children of God.

    ....the merciful: for they will be shown mercy.

    ....those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


    Blessed are you

    when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

    Blessed are..

    ....those who mourn: for they will be comforted.

    R. T. France considers Matthew 5, verses 11 and 12 to be based on Isaiah 51:7.

    The Beatitudes of the Right Wingers:

    Blessed are:
    - the rich: for they will inherit everything.
    - those who hunger & thirst for power: for they will be filled.
    - the unmerciful: for they will be shown obeisance.
    - the warmakers: for they will be called the profiteers of God.
    - the corrupt in heart: for they will see the halls of Congress.
    - those who are persecuted for profits sake: for theirs is the last laugh.
    - the poor in mind: for theirs is a career with a Fortune 500 company.

    I disagree with the reader who says “I frown over any astrologer who delves into criminology because for crime to happen there must be much more than planetary aspects.”


    My response continued:

    Criminologists should look at all factors, including the astrological factors.

    Second, when we look at the salvation of a human being (for example, saving them from committing a crime), we have to look at astrology against character aspiration--the individual’s commitment and drive to live an evolved life over the chart.

    Despite that manner of living, transcending the base natal chart to live a life that blesses society, yes, there is doom. What the oracle was to Oedipus, Astrology is to us. We must not deceive ourselves.

    My generation, the generation of Pluto in Virgo is dealing with transiting Neptune opposition natal Pluto. The message is: All you spirits who have incarnated while Pluto was in Virgo must now face the difference between ideals and reality. Now, the expertise with which we face an opposition, conjunction, etc. will determine how we act out.

    In terms of Astro-Carto-Graphy, when I moved from living under a Venus influence to a Saturn influence, there was no way I could stop the Saturnian theme manifesting in my life with the exception of getting from under the Saturn beam of heaven. Loved ones do not enjoy hearing me speak of going back to a place on Earth where Saturn on the DS is nor mirroring the Saturn on the DS in my natal chart. Yes, I and others are helping me experience it with some degree of transcendence. As in the book of Job, when entities of Heaven make you an object of their influence, you are under that influence. Cope with it as best you can; and, even ask society to lighten up.

    I think we have to know to what degree people cannot cope. We have to know how dangerous an aspect or transit can be. We have to know how important it is to be nurtured by parents, community, and society, covering us from acting out our darkest impulses from the objects and patterns in the solar system.

    I know how true Saturn changed my life under the influence of Venus.

    Other heavenly influences can be harsher than Saturn. IF I had Pluto or Uranus on my DS, I would NOT go to college where my AstroCartoGraphy chart showed a Pluto or Uranus DS influence.

    Astrologers, should have the ethics and the obligation to warn our fellow people of the darkest astrological influences and inform the field of criminology, life counseling and college counseling about low-percentage astrological life choices.
