What to expect with Neptune in Pisces for the years 2011 – 2025

Neptune entered the last sign of the zodiac which is Pisces in the year 2011. To understand the essence behind this, one must know the importance of the meaning of the planet and the zodiac sign and how the chemistry between the two corresponds with each other, and the outcome of it. Neptune is one of the three planets that represent all of humanity, the other two planets is Pluto and Uranus. These three planets make up the consciousness and awareness of everyone and come into union as a whole. These three planets take the longest to orbit around the sun as they are one of the furthest planets away from the sun in our solar system. In this case, the planet Neptune takes about 165 years to make a full cycle around the sun and takes 14 years to orbit each sign. The planet Neptune symbolizes long term, spiritual aspiration and a gateway to emotional utopia. Neptune rules Pisces exoterically, but rules Cancer esoterically. Regardless of the difference between these two signs, Neptune is the lord of the water signs or the emotional signs of Pisces and Cancer. Both of these zodiac signs represent a feminine energy and are both spiritually inclined. In financial astrology, Neptune represents any substance or venture involved with fluid or liquid. Examples of this include water, chemical dye, oil, alcohol beverages, and fisheries. It is also conducive to establish long term partnerships or deals that are suitable that will reap benefit for the long haul. Pisces is very compatible to this as it goes along with maritime, shipping, and hospitality. The mutable or flexible aspect of Pisces makes it a bit easier for new and out of this world ideology. It is the zodiac sign that is the archetype of the mystic, and this sign represents compassion, higher power and self-reflection. Typically, Pisces is renowned for arts, belief or faith. Pisces represents water or the sea and manifests itself as the fish sign, and as you know fish need water to live on. Under the influence of this sign, Pisces, the adherent would need emotional and spiritual upliftment and encouragement from internal and external factors to succeed. Another interested fact, is that Neptune and Pisces in separate forms would intensify the urge of escapism, and that is accomplished through religion, entertainment, drugs, alcohol or anything that will allow us to escape this reality and in need for an alternative one by leaving the problem of illusion or getting more mesmerized into the enchantment itself. This yields to clarity or strong addiction.

The history of Neptune in Pisces transit occurred from 1192- 1206, 1356 – 1370, 1520 – 1534, 1684 – 1697, and 1847 – 1861.

“ Dream to the top, fantasize on power structure “

1192- 1206

During the time frame of 1192 – 1206, when Neptune was in Pisces, The Knights Templar represented the Christian religion, and failed to conquer Jerusalem from the Muslim Saracens of the Byzantine Empire in their three year battle, which ended in 1192. Minamoto no Yoritomo established the first Shogunate in Japan. Aztecs migrate from the “ The Four Corners of The World ,“ or from the four states of Arizona, Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico and entered into Central Mexico to establish the Aztec Civilization in modern-day Mexico at the year 1193. The Yellow River took over the Huai River drainage system for 700 years. The Huai River is located between the two longest rivers in Asia which are the Yangzte River and the Yellow River. In 1206, the Mongol Empire was founded by Temujin or better known as Genghis Khan of the Mongol people.

A volcano erupted in Iceland which initiated the district of Litlaherao to be dismantaled by flood in 1362. The Ottoman Empire was defeated by the Byzantine Empire in a naval battle near Greece in 1363. During the same year of 1363, the world witnessed one of the largest naval battles in recorded history when the Yuan Dynasty was ruling China. In 1368, Hongwu founded the Ming Dynstary after the collapse of the previous Yuan Dynsty. In the same year, the long term project of the costruction of the Great Wall of China was further worked upon again. More reforms came upon China, when Hongwu the founder of the Ming Dynasty, commanded that Confucious was to become school of thought and learning in the year 1369. The CharterHouse was built by Carthusian monks in London at 1370.

“ The New World arrived, captivated with religion. The oceans and seas explored for hopes of treassure“

1520 – 1534

The Spaniard explorers, who later would colonized most of Central and South America, won in a battle against the Aztecs in Otumba, Mexico in 1520. The Spaniards arrived in the Phillipines for the first time at the year 1521. This turning point was the beginning of colonization of the Philippine Islands by the same Spaniards for well over 300 years and ended in 1898. In 1522, one of the ships that survived the Spaniard Expedition, returns to Spain and became the first ship of the Europeans to circumnavigate the world. In the same year the knights of St.John who survived, were given priviledge by Suleiman the Magnificent, to escape to Malta and formed the Knights of Malta. The Spaniard Colonizer, Gil Gonzelez Davila founded large quanties of gold on the Pacific Beaches of Costa Rica, therefore, giving it, its name which means “ Rich Coast“.

During 1530, Rome was completely covered by flood water and the city of Reimerswaal in Netherlands was destroyed by flood. A major earthquake occurs near the Atlantic Ocean kills thousands of people in Lisbon, Portugal in the following year. Black magic and the occult were suppressed in Europe, as this was evident when a Witch Hunt happened in Schiltach, Germany during that same time. The Spaniards plundered the Inca Empire by capturing its Emperor and therefore took copious amounts of gold that was well over worth 100 million dollars.

“ It`s all about long term establishments. More rights for the religious “

1684 – 1697

In 1684, the British begun to build a trading station at Canton, China and served a growing demand in tea drinking in Europe. Oil lamps were used during the first organized street lighting at London in 1685. City charter was granted to New York City by the colonial governor and the Dominion of New England was established in 1686. The Declaration of Indulgence was issued by King James II of England, and granted tolerance by law for all religions in the same year. The members of the Protestant Reformed Church of France sailed to South Africa and helped set up the first vineyards of South Africa. In 1688, the Coffee House of London was opened by Edward Lloyd, this was only the beginning of what would be known as the Lloyd`s of London of today. The Treaty of Nerchinsk was signed between China and Russia, in 1689; this was the beginning of a long term alliance that is still in effect. The first paper currency was first introduced into North America by the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1690. Catholics were guaranteed civil rights in Ireland with the signing of the Treaty of Limerick. In 1692, three women of Salem, Massachusetts were charged with witchcraft.

“ The law of attraction, your thoughts is things“

2011 – 2025

The pattern of the previous Neptune in Pisces transit is that three main things are the underlying theme and they are water, belief structure or imagination and long term establishments. By this the water aspect correlates with the ocean, oil, and floods. The belief structure or imagination is eminent in the religion, the aspiration to fulfill and the birth of Hollywood. The long term establishments are evident in the New World colonialism and companies or corporations that set up shop for a long time. In this current cycle we have already seen massive floods, oil price rise and long term consensus between factions or entities. The long term establishments are involved with the birth of cycles, partnerships or companies. This Neptune in Pisces transit is more of a turning point for all to dream big and believe in what you do and is also a period where we are in a midst of great change amongst us. It has a sublime mode to it, where the force of change and imagination is increasingly intensifying. Some are too caught up into their fantasies or faith rather it works out practically or not. This is the result that it can also increase confusion and shortcomings. Neptune in Pisces is a time of flowing with the energy and to not push against the natural flow. However, one must go within and tap into both emotional and mental to fully take charge of this energy of Neptune in Pisces. Always, remember that Neptune represents long-term. The Belief and dreams of the creator is enhanced, and the unrealistic one is deeply embedded with their belief and illusion, which allows two polarities of the same spectrum. The energy and feeling of escapism through what you value and have your attention on will increase as you already view the heightened increase in stimuli, rather it`s entertainment, psychedelic plants, sex, tattoos and body scarification, and virtual world are all increasing within this way to seek an alternative reality through the dreams and imagination.

No need to fear the future, when you know what to expect.

US unemployment rate reaches 8.1%

Friday, March 6, 2009 

The official unemployment rate in the United States increased to 8.1% (seasonally adjusted), the highest level in over 25 years, after the Labor Department reported that 651,000 jobs were lost in February. The U-6 unemployment rate, an alternative measure also published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that includes other categories of unemployed and underemployed workers, was reported to be 16%.

The US economy has now shed 4.4 million jobs since the recession began in December 2007. Half of the job losses have come in the last four months, and the unemployment rate has jumped by 3.3% in the past year.

The Federal Reserve says that it doesn’t expect the jobless rate to fall below seven percent until 2011.

The professional and business service sector lost 180,000 jobs last month, while manufacturing shed 168,000. The construction industry has lost 1.1 million jobs since January 2007 and 104,000 jobs last month. At the same time, the financial sector lost 44,000 jobs, bringing the total to 448,000 lost jobs since a peak in December 2007.

“The construction industry is in a near depression,” said the General President of LIUNA, Terry O’Sullivan.

“We are staring into the abyss. The recession is intensifying and the economy is rapidly shrinking,” said Steven Wood of Insight Economics.

US stock markets opened higher after the report.



How the Army Corps of Engineers closed one New Orleans breach

Friday, September 9, 2005 

New Orleans, Louisiana — After Category 4 storm Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, on the night before August 29, 2005, several flood control constructions failed. Much of the city flooded through the openings. One of these was the flood wall forming one side of the 17th Street Canal, near Lake Pontchartrain. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is the primary agency for engineering support during such emergencies. A USACE team was assessing the situation in New Orleans on the 29th, water flow was stopped September 2nd, and the breach was closed on September 5th.

The breaches that occurred on the levees surrounding New Orleans were located on the 17th Street Canal Levee and London Avenue Canal Levee. The floodwall atop the canal levee was one foot wide at the top and widened to two feet at the base. The visible portion is a concrete cap on steel sheet pile that anchors to the wall. Sheet piles are interlocked steel columns, in this case at least 30 feet long, with 6 to 10 feet visible above ground.

Another breach was on a levee by Industrial Canal, which flooded the east side of the city during the storm.

The 17th Street Canal Levees and London Avenue Canal Levees were completed segments of the Lake Ponchartrain and Vicinity Hurricane Protection Project. Although other portions of the Lake Ponchartrain project are pending, these two segments were complete, and no modifications or improvements to these segments were pending, proposed, or remained unfunded.

The Corps was authorized by Congress to do a reconnaissance study back in 1999 to provide Category 4 or 5 protection. Money was received in 2000 and the reconnaissance study was completed in 2002, which indicated there was a federal interest in proceeding with the feasibility study. Preparation for that study is still underway, and involves issues such as environmental impacts, economics, and the engineering design of the project itself. The feasibility study was scheduled to begin in fiscal year 2006. It may take six years to complete, and there was nothing that could have been done to get this level of protection in place before this storm hit.

Within the city there are 13 subbasins, some of which became flooded. There are existing pumping stations to remove water from the basins. Usually there is much less water to remove, and the level became too high for some pumping stations to continue operation.

One of the services of the USACE is planning, designing, building and operating dams and other civil engineering projects. It has been deeply involved in creating the navigation waterways and flood control constructions around New Orleans, although construction and operation involves various levels of state and local involvement. The Corps is well suited toward emergency activities due to its combination of engineering expertise and being a component of the nation’s military forces. Assigned by the Department of Defense as the primary agency for Public Works and Engineering support, USACE supports FEMA during disasters.

On Saturday, August 27, while Katrina was a Category 3 storm gathering strength in the Gulf of Mexico, USACE’s Mississippi Valley Division was preparing and posturing elements from as far as Hawaii. Anticipating the possibility of a Category 5 storm placing water in New Orleans, preparations began for un-watering operations.

USACE District Engineer, Col. Richard Wagenaar, and a team worked out of an emergency operations shelter in New Orleans. Other teams waited in the storm’s path across the Gulf coast. Corps employees assessed the situation at the 17th Street Canal floodwall that was breached overnight. Corps engineers believed that water over-topped the floodwall, scoured behind the wall, and caused it to collapse. A second breach was known to have occurred on the Industrial Canal during the storm.

The Corps worked with the U.S. Coast Guard, Army National Guard and other state and federal authorities to bring in all assets available to expedite the process. “We’re attempting to contract for materials, such as rock, super sand bags, cranes, etc., and also for modes of transportation ­ like barges and helicopters, to close the gap and stop the flow of water from Lake Pontchartrain into the city,” said Walter Baumy, Engineering Division chief and project manager for closing the breach.

Planning for repairs involved the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, the East Jefferson Levee District and Orleans Levee District, to locate materials and access to the breach area.

The New Orleans District’s 350 miles of hurricane levee had been built to withstand a fast-moving Category 3 storm. The fact that Katrina, a category 4-plus hurricane, didn’t cause more damage is considered a testament to the structural integrity of the hurricane levee protection system.

At 2 or 3 AM, Corps officials got a telephone report of a suspected 17th Street Canal breach.

Flooding had begun slowly, but the second disaster appeared as water poured in even as the winds abated. Storm surge and rainfall had raised the level of Lake Pontchartrain, providing an enormous amount of water which poured into the city. By the end of the day much of the city was under as much as 20 feet of water.

Plans were made to begin levee work, including use of 3,000-pound sand bags on the 17 Street Canal. Army National Guard helicopters are expected to begin assisting in the operation August 31.

The breach at the 17th Street Canal Levee, a levee-floodwall combination, is about 300 feet long. It’s believed that the force of the water overtopped the floodwall and scoured the structure from behind and then moved the levee wall horizontally about 20 feet, opening both ends to flow.

State Transportation workers began building a road toward the breach with available equipment.

The Corps released two contracts to close the breach in the 17th Street Canal. The 3,000 pound sandbag operation at the 17th Street Canal was postponed early in the day when U.S. Army Chinook helicopters were diverted for rescue missions. The Corps continued to coordinate with Army officials to have helicopters assist in placement of sandbags at the breaches. The 3,000 pound sandbags are each about 3 feet square.

Corps officials worked with Orleans Parish and Louisiana Department of Transportation officials and Boh Brothers Construction Company, headquartered in New Orleans, to place piling at the lakefront to stop flow in the 17th Street Canal. This would stabilize the water flow and allow work on the levee, while also helping to stabilize the rest of the levee system.

Along with local and state officials, the Corps contracted to build access roads to the breach sites and to fill in the breaches. Rock/stone/crushed concrete would be hauled by truck for road construction and to repair the breaches. One plan called for building an access road from Hammond Highway to the 17th Street breach, and then southward to the end of the breach. The road would have to be built to safely permit backing and dumping of heavy materials.

Lake Pontchartrain was almost back to normal levels, so little water flowed out of the city. This allows a change of plans, and marine equipment was used to drive sheet piling at the mouth of the 17th Street Canal to seal off the entire canal from the lake.

Shortly after 1 PM the first piece sheet piling is driven, to form a steel wall across the lake’s entrance to the 17th Street canal. The opening was expected to be closed by the end of the day. A contractor began bringing in rock to build a road toward the breach. The breach was south and east of the Hammond Highway bridge over the canal, with dry land on the west side of the bridge.

Rock was being transported from offsite to complete the access road and closure at the 17th Street breach. Once the rock required to build the roads arrived in New Orleans and the access road to the breach has been completed, the Corps estimated closure of the breach could be completed in three to four days. Several private firms have volunteered services and provided assistance in design of the closure.

The 17th Street Canal Levee, a levee-floodwall combination, was now estimated to have a breach 450 feet long. It was still believed water overtopped the floodwall, scoured the structure, and then moved the structure 20 feet horizontally.

On east side of the 17th Street Canal, closure by sheet piling of the 200-foot-wide canal was done after the Corps was confident that the lake had fallen to a normal level and water was not trapped inside the city that would otherwise drain out by gravity.

Water could no longer flow from the lake into the city.

With the mouth of the canal sealed, the sheet piling prevented lake water from getting to the levee breach. Since no additional water can get through the breach it was no longer necessary to seal the breach itself. The next step is to get existing pumps working, and to bring in additional pumps to drain the surrounding city and the canal. Later, the canal can be drained so permanent repairs will be made to the levee.

Helicopters were dropping large sandbags made of strong, synthetic materials in the breach. Heavy equipment on the ground has been placing rock. Ground access was created by building a rock road from Hammond Highway, which is about 700 feet lake-ward of the breach. The 17th Street Canal is a drainage canal whose dimensions and an important bridge, integral to the flood control system, would not permit entry of barges and towboats to haul rocks and placement cranes.

Work continued on the breach. The sheet piling still blocks water from flowing in.

17th Street Canal breach was closed. After the emergency is over, the canal will be drained and the wall repaired.

Blackhawk and Chinook helicopters had dropped over 200 sand bags. Approximately 125 sandbags had broken the surface of the water.

There were three 42″ mobile pumps staged and two 42″ and two 30″ pumps were placed at the sheet pile closure. Sewer & water board, electric utility and 249th Prime Power Engineer Battalion were completing pump house inspection.

When pumps began operation, a 40-foot-wide opening was made in the sheet piling to allow water to flow out the canal.

The pump stations began to get online on 17th Street Canal. Pump Station 10 was actually pumping at this point. Pump Station 6 was interrupted to clean up some debris out of the area.
