Yesterday, I was asked about my opinions concerning the war in the Ukraine, and I had to be honest. I tuned out a long time ago. There was actually a good story shaping up in the Ukraine, and I was on it from the beginning.
Volodymyr Zelenskiy was accusing former President Petro Poroshenko of running away from charges that I think involved treason, and Poroshenko was accusing new President, Zelenskiy, of silencing political opposition?
That’s what I was following, Ukraine was a nation divided, and things were getting interesting. And in all fairness, treason and silencing political opposition goes on all the time here in the United States, but we don’t push the issue far enough to divide the country into civil war or starting a new government.
Anyway, all of a sudden, Russia was on Ukraine’s border threatening to invade.
“Wow, how convenient was that,” I said to myself. “I guess the people of Ukraine are going to put their problems aside and unite to defend their country. What else can they do?”
That’s when I tuned out of the Ukraine/Russian situation. Again, this another situation the United States should not be involved in, and for the life of me, I can’t understand why American citizens are being forced to show support for the Ukraine.
I’ll tune back in when Russia leaves and the regularly scheduled show resumes.
I just contacted an online publication because I wanted to write a feature story about Generation X, but there’s no guarantee they’re going to accept my offer. As a matter of fact, you have to be careful who you submit your work to because there’s a lot of people who are looking to put their name on other people’s work. I’m not saying that’s them, but you never know. All to often you hear stories about people submitting a piece that’s declined, only to find someone else taking the idea and submitting it.
What I’m going to do right here on my website is an astrological interpretation of Generation X as a sub-group within the United States. I used astro.com to produce the chart, and the information I used was January 1, 1965, at 12 o’clock midnight. The place was Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Generation X is a group or a portion of the American population born between the years of 1965 and 1980. It’s a fifteen-year period. The time and date I used because that’s officially when the first X’er would’ve been born, and since we’re talking about America, I could’ve used Washington D.C. or Philadelphia. I chose Philadelphia.
The Chart (astro.com)
Let’s begin with Libra on the ascendant (AC). Libra in the first house indicates a generation that’s all about justice, balance, harmony, equality, and love, and since Libra is on the ascendant, Venus (love) rules the chart.
With the moon present in the 3rd house, Generation X will have an awakening at the subconscious level. That awakening will cause issues concerning communication, short distance traveling, and our neighborhoods to rise to the surface.
Venus can also be found in Sagittarius in the 3rd house. This means there’s a direct link between equality, balance, justice, and harmony on the ascendant, and the matters covered under the 3rd house. Communities are important to this generation, there’s a belief that small scale progress can go a long way, therefore, the community or the neighborhood is a microcosm of the country at large. Strong communities equal a strong country.
Sagittarius is naturally a 9th house sign. Sagittarius embodies philosophy, higher learning and a broad range of concepts. It’s energetic, freedom loving, open to exploration, ambitious and generous. Venus in Sagittarius shows that we love our freedom, and we love living energetic ambitious lives. If we don’t have those things and we don’t feel free then this generation will want to know why. That’s why the moon is there.
Mercury is also in the 3rd house. Generation X will not be afraid to talk about these issues. If there’s no harmony we’re going to discuss it. If our neighborhoods are falling apart we’re going to talk about it. Communication in all it’s forms are going to be utilized by Generation X as they’re responsible for restoring balance and harmony.
As we cross over the IC and enter the 4th house of home and roots, we see Capricorn and the sun, and the sun’s conjunction with the IC. At the deepest, darkest, most private and most intimate part of the chart, which also represents the core of Generation X, it’s sunny! Our will and life force revolves around our careers, and our careers ground us and provide stability. This is a generation grounded through work, and if work is taken away, we become a generation uprooted and lost.
The 5th house deals with creativity and short term pleasure, love, and having fun. Saturn is there, which on a good note, indicates a responsible generation, but in a house where the sky is supposed to be the limit, do we really want someone limiting and controlling our potential? That’s what happening. Saturn has taken control and slowed down love as it relates to creativity, fun, and pleasure. This validates the moon’s presence in the 3rd house in Sagittarius.
The problem is that Saturn’s only good aspect is to the MC, the midheaven. With Saturn in trine with the MC, Saturn dictates how we reach the highest levels as a generation, and if it relates to fun-loving creativity and pleasure, there will be limitations, but if we’re good, there’s always the possibility that our patience will be rewarded.
Saturn is in Pisces, that’s means he’s leveraging religion and spirituality to place limitations on us. Pisces is a 12th house sign, and the 12th house is the house of secret enemies. There are secret enemies in the house of love and creativity and that’s throwing us off balance as a sub-group and as a country.
Chiron, the little key symbol you see in the 6th house, represents a core wound. On an individual level, this wound is created early in life, or brought into this life from a previous one, but since we’re talking about the core wound of a generation, it would only make sense that this wound was created before Generation X came into existence. That means Chiron’s wound in the 6th house/Pisces is one Generation X has inherited and now bears the burden of healing.
The wound is related to self-care and the immaterial world. Generation X is dealing with victimization and betrayal in the house of health and service, that means, America as a country has experienced victimization and betrayal. When this wound isn’t healed we’re a generation depleted because we compensate by being overly selfless. Healing the United Sates has become the responsibility of Generation X as of January 1, 1965.
The issue and the wound here is personal, but tremendously clear. If Generation X is going to leave America in better shape than they found it, we need to accomplish three things.
1.Create healthy boundaries. This translates to border issues. Wall or no wall, the issue here is controlling the flow of illegal immigration. Before coming into the United States, immigrants must enter through a port of entry. They should be checked, examined, and documented. When they are documented and legal, they should be required to assimilate into the American culture, and reminded that they’re now leaving their home land behind.
That’s how it always was. I don’t know why or when it stopped, but returning to that is absolutely necessary for our healing.
2.Be nurturing towards ourselves. America nurturing (Cancer) America. This is at the MC. America nurturing America is the highest part of this chart, and what we as a generation should be aiming and striving towards. This is one of the biggest questions we have as country. Why aren’t we taking care of ourselves? Why aren’t we manufacturing, making, and exporting? Why are we sending jobs overseas?
3.Improve and develop an intuition we can rely on.
The answer or key to numbers 2 and 3 once again revolve around Saturn. Intuition and nurture, that’s Pisces and Cancer. Creating healthy boundaries is possible. Our healing gets tricky when we come to our second and third needs, but if we’re serious about healing then I’ll bring the problem and the solution to light.
You tell me.
What? You want to know? Okay.
If you look at the chart, you’ll notice the natural order of things is flipped. Cancer is where Capricorn should be, Aries is where Libra is supposed to be, Taurus is where Scorpio should be, and so on.
With Libra on the ascendant, love rules the chart. Aries (mars/wars) is on the descendant, that means we should now start distancing ourselves from war. We did the war thing, and now it’s sinking below the horizon. Let’s remove ourselves from international issues, we’re not the police force of the world.
Nurturing (Cancer) ourselves, America taking care of America; it’s one of our biggest questions and one of our most important needs, yet, it’s the furthest away. It’s the highest and hardest thing to reach. We’re supposed to be grounded through nurture (Cancer/Moon).
In it’s place, is work (Career/Public Standing/Capricorn). Generation X has been blessed with a Grand Earth Trine; Jupiter/Taurus, Sun/Capricorn, Pluto and Uranus/Virgo.
The Baby Boomers, Generation W, was 14-years-old when President Kennedy was murdered in public. They were kids. Can you blame them for putting their heads down and going to work without questioning anything? Talking, nurturing, and getting to the root of problems just didn’t happen back then, and that’s when work replaced nurturing. That’s when fear replaced love.
Something else happened around that time. Yes, the 60s! The flow of drugs into the culture; Drugs to help generations of Americans mask, deal, and cope with the problems we were avoiding by putting our heads down and going to work.
Why do you think Chiron is in Pisces in the 6th house of health and service? We’re depleted because we’re doing everything we can to avoid our problems, and where’s Virgo, the 6th house sign? Where’s the Great Mother, the healer, and the nurturer?
In the 12th house of secret enemies. We’re being victimized and betrayed through health and service. I’ll repeat that. We’re being victimized and betrayed through health and service.
For the third need, developing and improving an intuition we can rely on:
Nothing happens without reason. This chart was flipped for our benefit.
Mars in the 12th house means we as a generation and a nation keep our feelings secret from the world. It means we do have strong intuitive powers (we need that #3). On the good side there’s and active imagination, but on the bad side, there’s an immediate danger from secret enemies.
We come full circle to my point about Saturn in the 5th house and in the 12th house sign of Pisces. Mars in the 12th house is telling us we have the creativity and the intuition, but we’re under Saturn’s control because of secret enemies.
Mars, as it represents the threat of secret enemies, steps aside and just watches. The trine connecting the 12th house to the 4th and the 8th has nothing to do with him. If we will (sun) ourselves to work (Capricorn), prosperity, luck, and benevolence (Jupiter) are bestowed and result in money and possessions (Taurus).
Wait, that’s only two signs, the grand trine is made up of three. What about Pluto and Uranus in Virgo? Pluto and Uranus in the 12th house are two amazing placements that would not only complete this trine, but would without a doubt, be the force we need to promote the healing of Chiron’s wounds.
Uranus in the 12th: You are very intuitive, perhaps psychic, and are attracted to unusual beliefs in religion or metaphysics. Your need to be independent in thought (freethinker) fights against limitations (Saturn) placed on you by others. On the good side, we’re humanitarian. On the bad side, we’re subject to sudden and unexpected adversities.
Like JFK. Oh, he was just riding in the car and all of a sudden he was shot in the head. Oh, that damn unexpected adversity.
Pluto in the 12th means we have a compelling desire to understand, and see deeply into philosophical issues. We want to know, we want to understand, and we want transformation.
Uranus is eccentric, unpredictable, and creative. He’s revolutionary and known as the great awakener. He wakes us up to get us moving in the right direction. Pluto is the detective of the zodiac. He digs and brings the truth to the surface.
Both however, are in conjunction with mars. Mars is close enough to where his presence is felt, but he’s not directly involved with the trine. Pluto and Uranus are under a direct and immediate threat, and all that is hidden in the 12th house of secret enemies.
We can be eccentric, but don’t get too out of control.
We can investigate and bring the truth to the surface depending on what it is and who’s involved.
Limited and controlled; but there’s a way around all that because Chiron is in trine with the midheaven, Neptune is also in trine with the midheaven, and the sun is in opposition to the midheaven.
The quickest and easiest way to do this, and don’t laugh, would be through the sun’s opposition. Stop going to work. There’s a constant pull for power going on between between the sun in the 4th house and the midheaven. Make it easy. Surrender to Cancer and nurturing and pursue happiness. Don’t put your head down and go to work, instead, get involved and make a commitment to reaching our highest potential.
That won’t happen.
So, we can solve the border issue, but that’s only one out of three. If want to go three for three, we need to go directly to the source.
Neptune is our connection to source, but if Neptune is going to work for us, it must be grounded. With natural power, Neptune can do for us whatever we need him to do, which is increased intuition, powerful dreams, and psychic ability.
How do we ground Neptune? Neptune can be grounded with truth.
In addition, we can look to the sign and house it rules (Pisces/12th house). Every part of our body falls under the rulership of a sign. Our feet are ruled by Pisces. We need to stand on our own two feet in the 12th house of secret enemies without fear, hate, or jealousy, and let Uranus and Pluto do what they do best without the threat of Mars.
The rest is a matter of taking care of our health, and removing the restrictions and limitations on the 5th house.
Right now, on the young end, Generation X is 42-years-old. On the older end, we’re 57. It’s not too late. We have another 30 years in power.

2. The Chiron Effect, Lisa Tahir; Bear & Company 2020.
Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine signed House Bill 99 into Law. This will allow teachers and other school staff employees across the state of Ohio to carry guns while at work.
DeWine further explained, that his first choice would be for schools to hire armed officers, but Bill 99 was an additional option for school districts. It’s an option, not a requirement. The link is below.
This article came out days after I published my opinions here on Nooz Buffet. And like I said, giving teachers and school staff the option to carry a firearm with training will never be the popular answer, but it’s the right one.
We have a responsibility at the state level and local levels to defend ourselves and protect our communities. Our quality of life is what’s on the line here.
People, individuals, need to embrace that responsibility, and I think DeWine made a good decision.
There aren’t many ways to stop school shootings when the people who commit these crimes decide to show up to a school with a gun and shoot people. How can we stop something if we don’t know where or when it’s going to happen?
We can’t, we just have to be prepared.
It’s sad that this is what it’s coming to, but we can’t allow terrorism to take anymore of our rights and privacies than it already has.
We The People created the Federal Government. We delegated rights to it, and we funded it. It’s growth was based on revenue, its income through federal taxes.
We had control.
Then someone created a private bank, called the Federal Reserve. There’s nothing governmental or federal about this bank. It’s privately owned.
All of a sudden, someone in government said, we can borrow money from the Federal Reserve. We can take control from the people if we break our dependency on their money. Lets just print all the money we want, and we won’t need the money generated from federal taxes.
No, someone else said. We can’t. Our money is backed by gold. If we have a million dollars worth of gold, then there can only be one-million dollars of paper money in circulation.
Well, lets end that. Lets put an end to the gold standard.
Okay, but what about inflation and the value of the dollar fluctuating with market conditions?
Ah, don’t worry about it.
We’re losing control.
Then, they took it one step further. Money was only one form of control we had, the other was the contract. Over time, our Federal Government succeeded at convincing us the sky was purple.
The have us believing the United States of America is a democracy when it is not.
I saw an article yesterday, and I can’t find it. It was about the government wanting to charge Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, with inciting insurrection for Tweeting the overturning of Roe V. Wade should be a call to arms.
I can understand the right being upset because the left went after Trump for January 6th White House incident, but I wish instead of fighting with each other, the left and right would come together and keep in mind they’re serving the people. I explained how insurrections, violent uprisings against the government are direct results of a deteriorated democracy, but let’s put that aside.
Overturning Roe V. Wade is a human rights issue, and I can definitely understand Lightfoot’s sense of urgency.
I can also understand the January 6th White House incident because the American people had good reason to believe the election was fixed in Biden’s favor. Elections in the United States should never be fixed, and if they in fact are, it’s a clear indication the people’s needs aren’t being met.
We shouldn’t be having fraudulent elections, and we as humans beings should always have the right to decide what we do with our bodies and what we put into our bodies.
I talk a lot about the government, but I don’t think everyone in government is bad. People have have had a lot to say about Lightfoot over the years, but in this case, she isn’t wrong. Rallying the people to stand up when they’re rights are at stake is admirable. It’s must go both ways though.
The labels of democrat and republican have become the front for an opposition between good and evil. We have to become masters of discernment. We really do. This is about humanity, free thought, and independent thinking. The right to free speech in this country guarantees us the opportunity to speak our minds and share our opinions. Everyone has the right to do so.
Think in terms of equality and what’s fair. You can’t shut down someone who thinks differently. Not everyone is bad, and not everything is fucked up, and conversely, not everyone is good, and not everything is amazingly wonderful. There’s a middle road here.
And don’t blame everything on the government either. We are a nation of citizens.
Art is an outlet. It’s a creative expression unique to the individual.
The point that’s absolutely necessary to make immediately is this:
When the North American continent was overrun by Spaniards and Europeans, this is going back to before the colonization took place, the first two things they did.
Slaughter the indigenous squatting population who wouldn’t follow the orders and mandates to just move on their own.
Burn all their books, manuscripts and written records. Out of sight, out of mind was the theme, and this was because a new regime was coming on stage.
It is imperative that people wake up to this; if the state board of education is banning certain books in schools, then that means they’re getting the order to do so by the Federal Government.
Now here’s thing, I was a teacher. I understand what it means to teach material that’s age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate. Anyone who truly cares about children understands the importance of allowing them to grow naturally. And by naturally, I mean having the chance to form their own opinions through their own real life experiences.
I don’t really know if being the leader of banned books is something to be celebrated. Art is an expression, art has value, and it is only through art that we truly come to understand the opinions and feeling of people of the times.
Those books that are banned should be quadruple checked to make sure they’re in fact both age and developmentally appropriate, and not another attempt by the far left to censor free speech and silence writers who oppose this leftist fascist regime.
That’s what’s going on people. There’s a movement in this country to silence free thinkers and crush independent thought.
You must be cautious anytime there’s a mass movement to ban the personal expressions of people.
I mean what’s next? Burning books? That’ll take us back to the Salem Witch Trials and beyond; back to like year 1200 maybe.
Here on the North American Continent, also know as the United Sates of America, the Mississippi River runs through ten states; Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
Back in 1927, the most destructive river flood in U.S. history was registered as the Mississippi overflowed largely because of heavy rainfall in 1926. They say 27,000 square miles of land was under 30 feet of water for months causing the displacement of almost 700,000 people.
Two years later, in 1929, steel and automobile production, two large portions of the American economy at the time, were in decline. European investors grew increasingly uneasy about investing in the U.S. economy and pulled out. That propelled a wave of fear that couldn’t be settled, by October, 16 million shares were sold off; Wall Street crashed, and the Great Depression followed. The Great Depression lasted from 1929 to 1941, and no depression has lasted as long or has touch nearly the amount of lives.
How did we rebound? Well, Franklin D. Roosevelt had to come out and tell the truth about state of the economy and the country in general, but weather or not we rebounded is up for debate.
After Roosevelt’s inaugural address on March 4, 1933, and his promise of a “new deal,” a plethora of federal agencies came into existence.
Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC)
Agricultural Adjustment Administration (AAA)
Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) -to police Wall Street activity
Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA)
National Recovery Administration (NRA)
Committee for Industrial Organization (CIO)
🤣Woah! Yeah, I mean it’s not a secret Roosevelt increased the federal government tenfold, and expected them to carry the country out of the depression, but the steel industry and the private sector in general was back in business because of WWII.
Flood, Great Depression, and then WWII began in December of 1941. The war ended in 1945, which was the same year FDR died, but I think many question his decisions regarding the sizable increase of the federal government because the federal government’s role was supposed to be limited with little intrusion in the lives of citizens, but..
at least he came out and told the truth. And I think citizens at that time weren’t really thinking about how the fed’s involvement could effect the future, or what kind of precedence it would set for future emergencies. Today, we almost expect federal intervention during times of emergencies.
But like I said, I think at that time people were in a real desperate situation, and the government came offering with their hand out.
