Your Questions About Solar Power International

Mark asks…

How will the changes of Pluto's category affect my astrological chart?

Ok, so a lot of people have been asking how the change of Pluto from a planet to a dwarf planet will affect their charts. Here is a statement I received from astrology.com.

Pluto joined our solar systems family of planets in 1930. Seventy-six years later, as astronomers have discovered more and more orbiting bodies, including asteroids, comets, moons and as-yet-unclassified bodies, the International Astronomical Union has reclassified Pluto as a dwarf planet.

But this doesn't mean that you should disregard Pluto's place in your charts! It hasnt left the solar system; it's just in a new category.

Historically, astrologers have examined events in the world at the time of a planet's discovery for clues about what it represents. As god of the underworld, Pluto represents power, transformation, the cycle of death and rebirth, and the process of breaking down and rebuilding. And now the status of Pluto itself is transforming — a sure sign of its power and influence!
Time will tell if the scope of Pluto's symbolism will decrease as a result of its reclassification. In the meantime, Pluto retains all its astrological significance, as it continues to orbit our Sun.

Sincerely,

Classical, traditional, and medieval Astrologers do not use the outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in their delineations, modern Astrologers utilize them. The traditionalists still practicing today will continue to ignore the outer planets in their delineations, just as they have always done.

Whether or not Pluto is classified as planet or not is irrelevant to modern practitioners of Astrology. The qualities associated with Pluto: power, control, transformation and the destroying or reforming urge, are still applicable whether it is called a planet or an ice dwarf.

Astrologers know from studying charts for 76 years, since Pluto's discovery, that Scorpio is co-ruled by Mars and Pluto. That will not change.

Astrologers use other bodies (not just planets) in our calculations, such as asteroids. Ceres, an asteroid, one of the bodies they may call a planet, already is in use by modern Astrologers. Other asteroids currently being used are Juno, Pallas, and Vesta. Chiron, a centaur, is also extensively in use. Chiron is believed to be ruled by Virgo. Non-planetary bodies can be ruled or in dignity by one of the 12 zodiac signs. Another example of that is the lunar nodes. In Western Astrology, the North Node is Exalted in Gemini and the South Node is Exalted in Sagittarius. The North Node is in Fall in Sagittarius and the South Node is in Fall in Gemini.

It makes do difference as to what Pluto is categorized as, planet, ice dwarf, or whatever the astronomers come up with as a classification system, the characteristics associated with it still stand.

Mary asks…

Without fuel and electricity, how long do you think it would take before we're knocked back to barbaric times?

George Carlin predicted two years when he asked himself this question in one of his specials. I predict just one.

But this scenario probably isn't as unlikely as it seems (if it at all does). Scientists predict harsh solar storms in 2012 for the power grids, and the ‘Peak Oil' scenario is soon to follow. http://www.lifeaftertheoilcrash.net/ An excerpt:

‘In November 2009, the UK Guardian reported that two insiders at the International Energy Agency (the agency tasked with figuring out how much oil is left in the ground) informed the paper that the agency has intentionally been covering up this crisis for fear of setting off a panic (emphasis added):

The world is much closer to running out of oil than official estimates admit, according to a whistleblower at the International Energy Agency who claims [the agency] has been deliberately underplaying a looming shortage for fear of triggering panic buying.'
mortoo – There was something in the article about alternate energy sources such as hydrogen.

‘When considering the role of oil in the production of modern technology, remember that most alternative systems of energy — including solar panels/solar-nanotechnology, windmills, hydrogen fuel cells, biodiesel production facilities, nuclear power plants, etc. all rely on sophisticated technology and energy-intensive forms of metallurgy.

In short, the so called “alternatives” to oil are actually “derivatives” of oil. Analyst John Michael Greer offers the following rather lucid explanation of this often over-looked relationship:

. . . every other energy source currently used in modern societies gets a substantial “energy subsidy” from oil. The energy used in uranium mining and reactor construction, for example, comes from diesel rather than nuclear power, just as sunlight doesn’t make solar panels.'
‘Without an affordable supply of oil coupled with healthy and robust financial markets to capitalize the transition, a non-chaotic adaptation phase is unlikely as the raw materials and investment capital necessary to fuel such a large-scale transition will have evaporated.'

Why would we be knocked all the way back to barbaric times? I mean, if people are smart, we could just take it back about 2 hundred years, to when life was good.

Lisa asks…

The end of the world. ?

After speaking of the end of days, and the wars/natural disasters, and nations rising up against each other, jesus said:

” Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken
30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. ”

The sun was darkened by the total solar eclipse on August 1st 2008
The moon did not give its light on that day and neither it give much of its light during the partial lunar eclipse on August 15/16.
The stars fell from the heavens during the Perseid meteor shower oberved by The International Meteor Organization for 40 days between July15 and August24.
The powers of the heavens will be shaken when the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is fired up on September 10 , 2008
What comes next? Jesus does.
ahahah 🙂

REPENT BEFORE ITS TOO LATE.

Heard in Palestine in 35 AD:

“The cloud blocked the sun and darkened the world. Much water fell from the sky. Terrible bright and loud booming flashes struck the ground. Menachem's goat fell from a cliff for no apparent reason and died. Bad milk in Bethlehem made several children sick. People have seen some stars fall from the heavens. A rabbi was seen fondling a prepubescent girl on the beach at Jaffa.

What comes next? Jesus does.
REPENT BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.”

Yadda yadda yadda.

Jenny asks…

What drastic actions can we do to change the 5 year point of no return?

was shocked to finf that the previous model of 25 years to no return has now been worked out to be 5 years!

According the International Energy Agency(IEA) in five years global warming will hit a point of no return after which it will be impossible to reverse the process.
What shocks me with this new information available the world is still producing around 150,000 cars a day, and just around the corner of my house Green-peace is protesting against the build of yet another coal power station. By the way this power station will only be open is seven year!
My point is, we keep building fossil-fuelled power stations, energy-guzzling factories and inefficient buildings.

The worst bit about it I think is, we are so afraid of what is happening and we are looking at the governments for guidance but all they can do is hold meeting after meeting and nothing gets done, and we sit on the sideline doing our little bit. Being vegan turning off the lights, cycle instead of drive, carpool, energy saving devises, but lets face it non of these steps is drastic enough to save the earth.
So what options do we have?
Well sadly this is one subject no matter how much I Google it, there simply does not seem to be a world action plan, something we can do about it.
I guess I am sort of expecting a global awakening. People and governments putting up a action plan to stop life as we know it and change our fate. A plan where we start to take the workers in the factories that produce these carbon producing items and place them in jobs where we move away from carbon. Solar is maybe really expensive, but what if we were to produce just a LOT more of it? With increase in supply the price normally drops? Now this is only one of the clean energy’s available today for us. If we start to look at Geo-thermal energy, then there is almost unlimited supply of energy available today!
Maybe I live in a dream world where I really hope we will be able to turn around the problem, maybe we need to start looking at alternative ways to “clean the air”? mm I think this is a typical stupis and human response, then we still sitting with a problem a couple of years from now, as there is a limit the world supply of fossil fuels. We have about 370 years left of fossil fuel, now would it not be better for our future generations if we can start making technological advances towards the right step now? If technology moves at the pace it does now, if we move in the right direction, then our future generations can flourish. Have a green life, and still be able to do all the things we do today but just clean energy.
For this to work, for us to maybe make the 5 year limit, we have to change the way we live, drastically, but what?
And how? Please any ideas? we need drastic action
