I know. There’s way too much media exposure for this ridiculous balloon boy drama. But what do you expect from a gas giant? Jupiter brings luck, opportunity, and optimism. Also inflation, excess, and irrational exuberance. When Jupiter stationed direct last week, the Dow hit 10,000. The very wizards who ruined our economy announced handsome profits and awarded themselves fat bonuses. Meanwhile the country was transfixed on a runaway helium balloon–with a helpless boy on board! Or so it was believed. The bulbous spacecraft was a perfect costume for Jupiter in Aquarius. “Keep your eye on the shiny object,” he cheered. And we did. Partnered with Neptune, Jupiter sent us a hoax, which is likely also true of the stock market’s optimism and the idea those guys deserve their bonuses. Here’s my latest bumper sticker: “The finance wizards ruined our country and all we got was this pathetic balloon.”
Not me. I have a Scorpionic ability to see right through their illusions. I keep my eyes on the lies and point out the emperor’s nakedness to anyone who will listen.
But I want that bumpersticker! 🙂
