Gang Injunctions and Gentrification- The Truth

From a very interesting link:

A whole lot of truth. Those gangs were around for years, yet they only get injunctions when a new demographic is moving in? Like I said before, gentrification is not ethical, as it's ethnic cleansing (racism) in order to bring in a more upscale demographic (classism), and the gang injunctions are only implemented to protect the demographic that will make them money (racism and classism). This is why we need to move away from being focused on material possessions and status towards making sure that everybody has what they need unconditionally.


First map is of LA County, second map is of the Bay Area, and the third map contains gentrification data of every major city. Notice in the maps that the areas closest to the urban core and ocean are gentrifying rapidly, whereas the areas further away aren't.

Nothing wrong with hipsters or hip neighborhoods, it's that the way the existing low income residents are pushed out is just wrong, when they should reap the benefits of the development of their neighborhoods.

Gentrification- Is It Really Ethical?

Gentrification. A process that has been going on for years, especially in the city of Los Angeles. Many of the city's neighborhoods are gentrified or are currently gentrifying. Hollywood, Venice, West LA, Silver Lake, Echo Park, West Adams, and Downtown are among the most notable, but the process has gone on to other areas, such as Highland Park. While gentrification does beautify these areas, is it really ethical?

To put it bluntly, no.

In gentrification, the area is beautified and rebuilt, but for a different demographic than the demographic currently in the neighborhood. This demographic is mainly the Young Urban Professional, better known as the "yuppie". These people are generally first time homebuyers, and have a strong desire for a close commute to the inner city, as well as a strong nightlife scene. Nothing wrong there, but that's not the unethical part. In order to make way for this new demographic, landlords will resort to many tactics, including ridiculously high rent increases and refusal to fix anything wrong in the units, in order to entice the tenants to move out. For homeowners, property taxes increase rapidly. Also, gentrification is often accompanied by gang injunctions, which are court orders against certain members of a gang that heavily restrict their activities. A prime example is the border of two Los Angeles suburbs, Monrovia and Duarte. Two of the three gangs in the area are now under a gang injunction, and have been since 2009. Did the area only start to get bad? No, as these gangs have been around for years and have always been rivals. What has gone on since 2009? A Light Rail extension to Downtown LA has been built. Not true gentrification yet, as there's no bustling nightlife scene there, but whose to say that it won't happen in the future? Was that the reason for the injunction? Not to protect the already existing Latino and African American demographic in the area, but to protect a possible newer and more wealthy demographic because of the new train? The Scorpio Moon in me says "yes".

Don't get me wrong, I am all for development and improving bad neighborhoods, but not when it involves kicking out the already existing demographics. In a way, they're being punished for not only their lack of wealth, but also their ethnicity as well. The best way to improve bad neighborhoods is simple: Universal Basic Income. If everybody is on an unconditional living wage, the economy will boom due to people having more spending power, crime will decrease because everybody will have what they need because of the boost in their incomes, and people would be more free because they wouldn't have to be enslaved to a system that's not in their best interests in order to survive. A working class Latino or African American neighborhood can become a middle class neighborhood if everybody over 18 had a Universal Basic Income, so why isn't it implemented?


The more income equality, the less power the corporations that own our governments have, and they really don't want that to happen. We have to elect ethical politicians into office, and the best way to do that is to understand human nature, which astrology is the most reliable tool for. Until then, we're at risk of continuing to elect politicians who are prone to compromising their beliefs for money and power. Gentrification is just another way of punishing people for being low income or an ethnic minority, which is reprehensible.

An example of a good development that benefits the existing community:


Big difference.

Pluto Generations- The Evolution Of Our Society

This is a post from my Left Wing Astrology blog that also represents the subject matter here, so I feel that it should be on here as well.

In generational astrology, the sign Pluto is in represents the role that your age group will play in regards to the evolution of society, as Pluto is the transformer. It also indicates the core reality of your age group (Pluto in Cancer ius family oriented and patriotic, Pluto in Leo is creative and individualistic, Pluto in Virgo is very health and service oriented, Pluto in Libra is very relationship and beauty oriented, Pluto in Scorpio has extreme depth and doesn't accept anything but the truth, Pluto in Sagittarius is very reckless and freedom oriented, etc.), so while Pluto's influence may not be as well known as that of the Sun, Moon, and inner planets, it has a very important role nonetheless.

Pluto in Cancer (1912-1939)

This generation's main role was to transform family life. It was this generation that's responsible for the current family structure of an average of two to three kids,also known as the nuclear family. And this generation is responsible for women becoming a large part of the workforce, as WWII forced housewives to enter the workforce and support their families with their husbands being away for war.

Pluto in Leo (1937-1958)

This generation's main role was to transform childhood, as children were to be seen and not heard until this generation came, and a lot of the artists of the 1960s, such as Elvis, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and The Who to name a few, were created for this generation. The Vietnam War protests that this group is known for led to the abolition of the draft by Jimmy Carter.

Pluto in Virgo (1956-1972)

This generation has had many accomplishments, most notably the expansion of technology throughout their adulthood. The computer began to replace the typewriter during their years as young adults in the early 90s, and after their Saturn returns is when the internet and cell phones became mainstream. This generation is also a driving force behind the green and vegan movements, most notably the left wing members of this generation. Virgo rules health and the environment.

Pluto in Libra (1971-1984)

This generation's all had their Saturn returns, and with Libra being the sign of fairness, it's no coincidence that this generation, most notably the left wing members of the generation, is a driving force behind issues like minority rights, gay rights, and equal pay, and gay marriage eventually being legalized two years ago. Libra is the sign of harmony, and thus a major portion of this generation is also anti war. It is no coincidence that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan dominated when this generation were the young adults.

Pluto in Scorpio (1983-1995)

This generation is currently the young adults, and the oldest are already going through their Saturn returns. Scorpio rules the occult, and Neptune, the dissolver, is currently in the sign of secrets, Pisces, and it's no coincidence that the secrets about the world's institutions (Pluto in Capricorn) are slowly coming out. As a card carrying member of this generation, my writings are mainly to expose how political ideology and generational characteristics are shown in your birth chart, as well as the reality of the system altogether (the Illuminati control everything masinstream, and people are "wage slaves" for the elite until they are physically unable to do it anymore). Note: The Pluto in Libra generation and the vast majority of the Pluto in Scorpio generation have the asteroid Quaoar in Scorpio, which is said to fit the timeline of the Indigo children, whose role is to break down outdated systems that aren't in humanity's best interests, and I'm one of them.

The Pluto in Sagittarius (1995-2008) generation is still in the school system, with the oldest being in college, and the Pluto in Capricorn (2008-2024) generation is still being born, with the oldest being third graders, so they have yet to make their mark, and thus they're not listed.

The main reason for this article is to show that while all the Pluto generations are different, all have a unique role to play in the evolution of society, and that all are connected. Pluto in Leo rebelled against Pluto in Cancer's rigid family values, Pluto in Virgo cleaned up Pluto in Leo's mess, Pluto in Libra's tactfulness came after Pluto in Virgo's criticism, Pluto in Scorpio are willing to go into the dark side that Pluto in Libra isn't, Pluto in Sagittarius is optimistic whereas Pluto in Scorpio is cynical, Pluto in Capricorn will bring order to Pluto in Sagittarius' recklessness, etc. The more we understand our generational dufferences and that each one has a specific role to play, rather than trying to make each generation act like our generation, the better off society will be.

Neptune Generations: The Image and Culture of Our Society

This is a post from my Left Wing Astrology blog that also represents the subject matter here, so I feel that it should be on here as well.

In generational astrology, the sign Neptune is in represents the image and culture of the age group. This also means that the sign Neptune is in is the image and culture of the time period, as everyone born is "trapped" with the astrological weather of the time they were born for the rest of their life, and with the outer planets, generations are basically "torchbearers" for the time period they grew up in, which is why people tend to be nostalgic for their childhood years, as Pluto and Neptune stay in the same sign for years after a person is born unless they're at the tail end of a generation. Because of this, Neptune's influence is very significant, despite it not being as personal as the Sun, Moon, ascendant, or inner planets.

Neptune in Leo (1914-1929)

This was the Roaring Twenties, as the culture of these years was based on celebrities, movies, jazz music, and extroversion in general after the invention of the telephone and automobile. As a result, the children born during this era have a warmth and thirst for the "good life" that the generation after them didn't (also with Pluto in Cancer).

Neptune in Virgo (1928-1943)

This was the Great Depression and WWII. The culture in this era basically WAS the Depression, as people just wanted a job and a roof over their head, which many didn't have then. The children born during this era are more serious than the Neptune in Leo Pluto Cancers, as Neptune in Virgo was a more serious era in general.

Neptune in Libra (1942-1957)

The postwar era. These years were known for classical music (Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby), postwar prosperity, conforming to social norms (one of the shadow sides of Libra is vanity and wanting to fit in, which is why many Baby Boomers and Gen Xers come off as vain as they have Neptune and Pluto in Libra respectively), and overall peace after the Depression and WWII. As a result, the children born during this era are known as the "flower children" and made up the majority of the Vietnam War protesters, as their desire for peace along with their Pluto Leo pride led to the Hippie movement.

Neptune in Scorpio (1955-1970)

The Sex, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll era. These years were when the Neptune in Libras became teenagers and young adults, and became rebellious in a way that the previous generations weren't. The Hippie movement, Vietnam protests, Summer of Love, and Woodstock all took place during Neptune in Scorpio, as well as the JFK and MLK assassinations (Scorpio rules violence and secrets). This era was dominated by classic rock, and the main acts during this era, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and The Doors to name a few, were a big part of the Sex, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll culture. Motown, girl groups, rockabilly, and Doo Wop were also big during this time, but more in tune with Pluto in Virgo. As a result of the cynicism of this era, the children born in this era are very cynical in nature (like the Pluto Scorpios in the mid 80s-mid 90s), and are the first "tattoo generation" (the other Scorpio generations, Uranus in Scorpio from 1974-1981 and Pluto in Scorpio from 1983-1995, are also heavily tattooed).

Neptune in Sagittarius (1970-1984)

After the cynical 60s, the Neptune in Sagittarius 70s and early 80s was way more vibrant. This was the era of disco, arena rock, and new wave music, all of which had more vibrant and unique sounds than that of the 60s. Bands that were active in the 60s, like the Rolling Stones and The Who, changed their sound to a more 70s style sound, and the lyrics to the songs had more to do with love and relationships (Libra, as the artists that were big during Neptune in Sagittarius had Neptune in Libra and Pluto was also in Libra at the same time as Neptune in Sagittarius) than sex and drugs (Scorpio). Also prevalent during this era was the rise of religious fundamentalism, as a response to Roe vs. Wade and the previous Hippie culture. As a result, the children born during this era tend to be very jovial and vibrant, and the conservatives born during this era tend to be extreme religious fundamentalists.

Neptune in Capricorn (1984-1998)

The materialism culture. As a member of this generation, I was subject to the idea that the goal (Capricorn) in life was to be what you want to be in order to get a lot of money in order to buy material possessions. In the early-mid 90s, some of the most well known commercials were the Sally Struthers ICS commercials, which were Neptune in Capricorn at its most in your face (they're on YouTube if you haven't experienced them). The music associated with Neptune in Capricorn tended to be more slower than the previous era, as soft rock and easy listening music became dominant (Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, George Michael, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan, etc.), as well as heavy metal, rap, grunge, and hair bands, which were more in tune with Pluto in Scorpio. Also playing a big part of Neptune in Capricorn was the family TV boom, as numerous sitcoms (Fresh Prince, Roseanne, Family Matters, Full House, Cosby Show, Married With Children, Home Improvement, Seinfeld, Saved By The Bell, Cheers, Different World, Friends, Boy Meets World, Step By Step, Wonder Years, etc.) and cartoons (Doug, Rugrats, Rocko's Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, Aaahh! Real Monsters, Hey Arnold, The Angry Beavers, etc.) were all big during this era. As a result, the children born during this era, like myself, have a very serious and determined nature.

Neptune in Aquarius (1998-2012)

The technology culture. When Neptune in Aquarius hit, the internet and cell phones became mainstream, social media became a tool used by everyone (Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube all have Neptune in Aquarius with Pluto in Sagittarius), and reality TV became a mainstay on TV, giving normal people the chance to become stars. Neptune in Aquarius was known for being the era of Nu Metal (like metal, but with DJs and turntables being used), indie rock, emo, and techno pop, while Boy Bands and bubblegum pop were also prevalent but more in tune with Pluto in Sagittarius. As a result, the children born during this era are very eccentric in nature.

Neptune in Pisces (2011-2026)

This transit is still ongoing, but some common themes of this era are a rise in alternative spirituality and the PC culture. Pisces rules compassion as well as sensitivity, so it's no coincidence that the PC culture only came into existence during the Neptune in Pisces era. With Pluto in Capricorn happening at the same time, exposing the corruption in government and big business and making knowledge of the Illuminati more mainstream, Neptune in Pisces is making alternative spirituality more mainstream, as an alternative to the organized religions controlled by the Illuminati (Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Catholicism, Mormonism, etc. are all man-made religions and are pitted against each other in order to divide and conquer... a (New World) Order out of chaos (division creates chaos).

Like with Pluto, all Neptune eras are connected. Extroverted Neptune in Leo came before depressing Neptune in Virgo, which came before peaceful Neptune in Libra, which came before cynical Neptune in Scorpio, which came before jovial Neptune in Sagittarius, which came before serious Neptune in Capricorn, which came before eccentric Neptune in Aquarius, etc., and when these Neptune generations become young adults, Pluto enters the sign their Neptune was in at birth, destroying the illusions they were conditioned with during their childhood (Neptune also rules illusions). Also notable is that the masculine Neptune eras are more upbeat than the feminine Neptune eras, which goes hand in hand with the masculine Neptune generations having a more outward image and expression than their feminine Neptune counterparts, which I've noticed in person. In 2026, Neptune will go into Aries for good, which will likely result in a more upbeat era once again.

Evangelical Christianity- How It's Giving Christianity A Bad Name

When people think of Christianity today, they think of Evangelical, or nondenominational, Christianity. Evangelical Christianity, which was brought to the mainstream by Calvary Chapel, is associated with many things: Megachurches, televised preachers who are known for their extreme wealth and scandals, coffee shops inside the churches, and most notably, an extremely conservative doctrine. Not just socially conservative, like the Catholic Church, but all around conservative. But how much of this goes hand in hand with the true teachings of Jesus Christ?


These Evangelical churches preach a doctrine that's identical to that of the Republican party. Anti abortion, anti gay rights, pro Israel, pro gun, pro tax cuts for the wealthy, anti environmentalism, pro war, etc. Here's some quotes from Jesus himself:

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."

"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."

"And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."

Do ANY of these verses fit the Republican party platform at all? The Republican party is notorious for tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, while funding their wars, which have corrupt motives, by cutting programs that our neediest citizens rely on. And their strong stance against gay rights hardly qualifies as peacemaking or loving your neighbor as yourself. Jesus said nothing about abortion or gay marriage, yet chased the bankers out of the temple and told the rich man to sell all of his possessions to the poor. A common argument from Evangelicals is that Jesus preached giving to the poor individually, not having the government do it. While that's true, he didn't preach against it either, and it doesn't justify the Republican party being the main culprit of the ever-increasing wealth gap, as the GOP congress pressured Bill Clinton into repealing the Glass Steagall act, which was a major contributor to the Great Recession. By voting for Republicans in every election, Evangelical Christians are supporting the very things Jesus preached against.

The conservative doctrine in the Bible is in Paul's books and the Old Testament. When Jesus was alive, Paul was one of the Pharisees, which were the religious extremists at that time, and known as Saul of Tarsus, and the God of the Old Testament, Jehovah/Yahweh, is the central focus of Judaism. As commonly known, Zionist Jews, the most notable being the Rothschild family, are at the top of the Illuminati pyramid. Judaism temples worship on Saturday, or SatURNday. Jesus was the "Sun" of God, and it's no coincidence that Christianity, Catholicism, Mormonism, and any religion that worships Jesus worships on SUNday. The main message preached by Jesus is love, while the main message preached in the Old Testament and in Paul's books is authoritarianism, which is prevalent in today's society, and that is no accident. It doesn't get any more authoritarian than "follow the doctrine, or else you'll burn in Hell for eternity".

The sooner Christianity moves away from the authoritarian doctrines and more towards Jesus' true message, which is unconditional love for everyone, the better its image will be.

Mixed Use Developments- How They Contribute To Climate Change

Over the last 20 years or so (which was around the start of the Pluto in Sagittarius building boom from 1995-2008), especially in my home state of California, the tearing down of run down buildings and building mixed use buildings in their place has become commonplace. While I get what these local governments are doing, which is beautifying blighted areas, these developments are a major factor in one of the world's biggest issues.

Climate Change.

How do these mixed use developments contribute to climate change? The main reason is simple: overpopulation. The buildings that are generally demolished to make way for these developments are used car lots, old repair shops, vacant buildings, among other properties that nobody lives at, in order for new businesses to replace the demolished businesses, as well as many new residents above these businesses. More people in the city equals more vehicles on the street, which means more carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide emitted into the atmosphere. This massive increase in population also results in more traffic as a result of the increase of vehicles in the city, as well as overcrowded schools, due to the increase in residents.

The oxymoron is that some of the biggest culprits of these mixed use developments are cities run by Democratic municipal officials. As everybody knows, the Democratic party is the party that is against climate change, yet these Democratic officials still push for these developments despite the inevitable overpopulation and negative effect on the environment and our school systems that these developments create. Why?


More people in the city equals more consumers, which equals more revenue. And as I've mentioned in my main blog, Left Wing Astrology, politicians with a mixed or aggressive Pallas (Pallas and/or its ruler in hard aspect to Jupiter, any aspect to Pluto, and conjunctions and trines to the South Node) are prone to compromising on their beliefs (nearly all Democratic politicians have left wing economic and social indicators) in order for more money and power. This is obvious when you look at the ethics, or lack thereof, of our federal and state governments, so it's unlikely to be any different with our local governments, but just switch "big business" with "the developers". If everybody had a Universal Basic Income, or if there was no monetary system at all, then these types of developments would be less prominent. This would also be the case if Alan Lin's theory on political ideology and ethics and Dick Minnerly's Consideration Cycle were mainstream knowledge, for we'd know how the true character of our elected officials.

I'm not against all development, as it's very positive when the positives far outweigh the negatives, but despite eliminating blighted buildings, mixed use developments create far bigger problems in the long run. The gangs are still there in gentrified areas of LA like Venice, West LA, Hollywood, Silver Lake, and Echo Park, despite the areas not looking nearly as "ghetto" as they used to.

Donald Trump- The Antichrist?

This is an interesting link, containing clues that point to Donald Trump being the Antichrist. The evidence is very interesting:
