WOW!AUG 17, 2009 - Swine Flu Jab is a timely news item as we come up on the swine flu vaccination season here in the northern hemisphere; which coincides with the next Saturn-Uranus opposition (September 15, 2009). I mention the Saturn-Uranus opposition because it has some connection with flu outbreaks over time, as I pointed out in my 2008 World Forecast Highlights: "Look it up in my table of Saturn-Uranus oppositions: the signature alignment of 2008 was there at the birth of Saros 133 too, back in 1557. It was the year of an influenza epidemic in Europe, as well as a great financial crisis." More immediately, consider a Saturn-Uranus opposition that changes signs during its set, which is happening in the 2008-2010 set of five alignments (beginning in Virgo-Pisces, ending in Libra-Aries). The last time there was a change of sign during a set of Saturn-Uranus oppositions was the 1918-1920 set of five, which began in Leo-Aquarius and ended in Virgo-Pisces. In that last set, H1N1 pandemic peaked in 1919, during the Mars perigee pass - which will be coming up again this winter. But before you start pounding on doors to get your swine flu vaccine and your antiviral supply, give some thought to the facts laid out in Swine Flu Jab. I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I do remember the 1976 swine flu outbreak - and the US vaccination program, which killed more people than the flu itself. No drug or vaccine is risk-free, and the risks must always be weighed against the benefits. There are risks to antiviral drugs like Relenza and Tamiflu, and to vaccines as well. Before you get on the bandwagon, be aware of the different drums . . .
