China and the Blue Blood Moon

During a lunar eclipse, our actions, whether good or bad, are multiplied one thousand fold.
— Tibetan Buddhist belief.

A question has been rolling around in my head ever since the launch of the anticipated #PetroYuan oil futures exchange took a miss last month. With Chinese New Year looming just ahead in February, along with the inevitable week-long cessation of business, will China delay the launch until after the national holidays?

So I took a look at the new rumored dated of January 18th. When you place that date within the context of traditional Chinese attitudes towards astronomical cycles, a launch of the exchange next week actually makes a lot of sense. The Chinese people pay much more attention to lunar and solar cycles than we westerners do. Times and seasons dictate that January 17th is the New Moon and many oriental cultures set the first day of the month by the New Moon. The number "8" is the luckiest number in Chinese culture. Therefore, it is possible that January 18th may have been the target date all along.

According to the website [linked here], the remaining January dates flagged as "auspicious" for "signing contracts" are January 16, 19, 20, 22, and 23. So, a launch of the Shanghai exchange on the 18th falls within a window of good timing with just shy of four weeks to get things rolling before payment processing shuts down for Chinese New Year on February 16th. 

However, there is another lunar coincidence that will be happening just two weeks after the window of January 18th. You are bound to hear a lot of hoopla about it as the date of January 31st approaches. A "Blood Moon" lunar eclipse will be visible in large parts of the U.S., northeastern Europe, Russia, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific, and Australia. Now, lunar eclipses happen regularly all year long. But this one carries a distinction not seen for over 150 years.

This will be the first time in more than 150 years that we've been able to see a Blood Red lunar eclipse on a Blue Moon date (that is, when two natural full moons happen within one calendar month, that second moon is called a Blue Moon.) For the record, such a coincidence did happen on December 30, 1982, but it happened at noontime so nobody could see it. For that reason, in another 15 days or so, you'll hear people talking about the "Blue Blood" moon coming up on January 31, 2018.

I can't say for sure how the Chinese regard the unusual lunar coincidence. If their oil exchange launch goes smoothly, the 31st will mark the fourteenth day after the launch. Tibetan Buddhists say that during a lunar eclipse, our actions, whether good or bad, are multiplied one thousand fold. For all we know, the Old Families of China have timed everything to fall into this January window to insure the success of what is being hailed as the birth of the #PetroYuan.

Mrs. Li Qingping, Chairperson of CITIC

While we're on the subject of the Shanghai International Energy Exchange, I thought I would mention this tidbit that likely got buried in the news. Back on December 14th, the INE announced the two banks that are now designated as Depository Banks for the margin business of the INE's overseas clients. Those two banks are the Agricultural Bank of China and the China CITIC bank.

An interesting fact about the CITIC Bank is that it is China's only bank to be led by a female president. There is a brief write-up of her history with the bank posted back in June 2014 at the website [linked here].

The article mentioned that Li already saw the need to expand the bank's role in E-banking. She was quoted as saying that the transformation of China's CITIC Bank will depend on the revolution of e-channels. She also said, "Network finance plays an important role in channels. The Internet or e-banking functions as an expressway. As long as we pave the way well, we can do well in retail and corporate businesses as well as other products that can bring in benefits to our customers." 

Those statements were made four years ago before concepts like "bitcoin" and "cryptocurrency" had become household words. Her forward vision makes me wonder if, and how, the CITIC might be planning to integrate the Blockchain and a possible crypto role as the bank prepares to take on the deposit business for Chinese oil futures.

2018 is already promising to be a fortuitous "Year of the Dog." By the way, this year isn't just the year of any old dog, but the year of the "Earth Dog." The animals in the Chinese zodiac are further broken down into categories of natural elements, like, water, metal, wood, fire, and earth. And wouldn't you know it but, in Chinese cosmology, an "earth" period is actually associated with Saturn. Just hold that on the back burner for future blogs here at RM that will discuss the theories related to the Electric Universe and the possible plans our Overlords may be pursuing to resurrect Saturn as Earth's original star.

"When I look back on all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all." -- the "Kodachrome" song by Paul Simon, 1973

I grew up in a quiet, small, city east of the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County, in Palmdale, California. I'm not quite old enough to remember the assassination of JFK, but do remember the assassination of Brother Bobbie on an early summer's day. I was finishing up my first grade at the elementary school just up the street from our suburbia house. Maybe that was when I became self-aware that something wasn't right. When I saw the events of that day unfolding on our new color TV, I remember a thought passing through my 6.5 year old mind. And silly me assumed that everybody else was also holding this same belief because it seemed so obvious to me:


"The President and his brother must have been killed by the same people."

I don't know how a little first-grader was able to come up with that conclusion. That certainly wasn't the sort of idea you would expect to be rumbling around the brain of a little kid. But it kept rumbling in mine and still does, to this day.

The people of my generation passed through the Space Race, the Vietnam War, Watergate, the Disco Era, Yuppies, the World Wide Web, and Irrational Exuberance. Throughout this entire period, a relentless Matrix Machine has been whirring in the background of our lives, unnoticed and largely unchallenged. In fact, that Machine has been whirring for centuries.

I guess it was inevitable that the 6.5 year old kid who once questioned the official doctrine of the Kennedy assassinations would one day swallow her own Red Pill. And so I did, following the 2008 Crash, as I watched the financial lives of my parents and myself collapse into disaster as the equity of our homes evaporated into the dry Arizona air.

I finally came to that moment as have so many readers and contributors of Rogue Money, that day when you finally stop and ask "Why did this happen?" I started reading, researching, listening. Gradually the bricks of The Matrix began to crumble. The monstrous beast was no longer hidden from view. 

And so I join this team of writers and readers who are all trying to Slay the Bankster Beast in their own way. We carry on with confidence because no Evil has ever stood forever against the onslaught of Truth. Undaunted, we move forward.

You will find that my contributions to the Rogue Money web site will focus on the deep history that created The Matrix in the first place. In other words, you won't find any opinion forthcoming on this-or-that presidential election ... unless you are talking about the overthrow of regimes 2- or 3- thousand years ago. In that case, I might be interested!

I make no apologies if what you hear steps on the toes of a long-cherished paradigm. I am just A Messenger. In fact, you will find that my blogs will invite your comments to provide additional pieces of information that perhaps you may have gleaned from your own research. I have many holes that need filling.

You've been told what, how, when, and where to think your whole life. I leave it up to you to exercise your own Mind and take appropriate Action to slay the monster for yourself.
