The Paris Climate Talks - Cursed by the Stars

The Paris climate talks, from the astrological viewpoint, could not have begun at a worse time in terms of the potential to produce meaningful results.

Talks are awash in corporate sponsorship

Environmental activists are livid that the Paris climate talks, now underway, are being sponsored by some of the very corporations that are driving global warming. Climate justice activists are decrying the talks as having been "captured by big polluters."

Pierre-Henri Guignard, Secretary-General of the UN Conference of Parties 21 (COP21), as he unveiled the list of corporate sponsors the day before the talks officially opened, said "We are building a very business-friendly COP which will show the commitment of the private sector to the spirit of the convention."

Pardon me, but as they say in the Valley, "Gag me with a spoon."

Outrage in the environmental community

Sponsors of the talks include the likes of French energy companies Engie and EDF, whose coal plants, in the words of Malika Peyraut of Friends of the Earth, "are equivalent to nearly half of France's entire emissions."

Sponsors also include the French bank BNP-Paribas, which, according to the global NGO network Bank Track, "accounts for half of the total support - now totalling over 30 billion euros - provided by French banks to the coal industry between 2005 and April 2014."

Said Maxine Combes of ATTAC France in a press statement released Wednesday, December 2, 2015, "The public interest demands that these talks not be polluted by by the private interest represented by these companies. Would we entrust the fight against tobacco to cigarette manufacturers? Why do it for climate policy?"

The Climate talks horoscope

The horoscope for the official start of the talks, shown above, reveals what one might expect, given the vast influence of the corporate world over the gathering. Immediately noticeable is the fact the the talks opened under a "void-of-course" Moon. In "event astrology" (casting a horoscope for the beginning or "birth" of any event), a void Moon means that "nothing will come of the matter." (See my Wikinut article: Basic Astrology: The Void-of-Course Moon Explained.) Thus, we can expect that much like all of the environmental summits held in the past, this one will produce little or nothing of value.

The exact Sun-Saturn conjunction suggests that there will be no "rocking the boat" during these talks, since the established order (Saturn) is in firm control of the agenda. Moreover, with Gemini rising and Mercury, its planetary ruler, in the seventh house, there is much talk (Mercury/Gemini) and very little action, as Mars occupies the sign of its detriment, Libra. Additionally, the exact square between the Sun and Neptune suggests that any hopes for progress coming out of these talks are nothing more than wishes and fantasies.

Presumably the energy companies see this as a way of improving their public image - "we may be creating the problem, but we'd like to assuage our guilt by giving you lots of money".

Only talks and that's it, no solution for the long run, just bla bla bla!

Thanks, Steve. I found the same difficulty in the Environmental Summit in Rio in 1992: there was too much diffused energy then, that I knew it was a hopeless endeavour. (John, I'm surprised that you didn't stake Steve to task over Astrology in the same way you always do with me. Has something changed?)

Just wondering if certain sumits/talks/conventions are not purposely scheduled to coincide with void moon and other constellations that favor "no outcome". I wouldn't put it past the organizers and the companies behind them.

It's simple really. Get a good astrologer on the books or get the software and a bod to interpret it and schedule accordingly.

Are there any statistics out on events "born" under the void moon and how unsuccessful they were? Political or otherwise?

As to Monsanto, I've read that they have the creme de la creme employed including organic and bio-dynamic farmers to advise them. And in the event that the public wakes up to their lethal game, they can simply switch to organic/bio-dynamic products AND seeds, no problem. But in their eyes, chemicals and GMO seeds are still more profitable ..... until the public wakes up .......

There are plenty of statistics out there that confirm what astrology tells us about starting things on a void of course Moon. One example: the sailing of the Titanic.

Ok, thanks, Steve, seeing that I plant by the moon and there are many other things one can do and do them better on certain days, well, I think you've convinced me now that I must study astrology and not only the "void of course Moon".

I guess a good start would be to read the articles on Wikinut and then go further.

I just so enjoy to be happy and successful in my ventures, I won't spare any effort to make everything easier. And besides, prevention is better than cure.
