The Astrology of Monsanto
[Remarkable astrological information that sheds light on the nature of this wicked corporation that has perhaps done and is doing more damage to our planet and the health of its inhabitants than any other. -Zen]
GMOs: What Do the Stars Say Astrologically
Catherine J. Frompovich
With all that’s going on regarding genetically modified organisms, especially food crops, this writer became intrigued while standing in line at a Whole Foods checkout counter by a magazine’s cover story “Inside Monsanto,” which appears on the Aug./Sept. 2013 issue of The Mountain Astrologer. Online access to the magazine is www.mountainastrologer.com.
Even though being somewhat esoterically inclined, the feature article by Eric Francis Coppolino was a little more than this writer expected. Coppolino, an astrologer, delved deeply into the history of both Monsanto and its founder, John Francis Queeny, in addition to supplying astrological charts for both, which were delineated, cross-referenced to Monsanto history, and from which prognostications also were offered.
According to Coppolino’s exceptional eight-page article, Monsanto was founded November 29, 1901 in Jefferson City, Missouri. Queeny, who worked for a pharmaceutical company by day, invested $1,500 of his own money and borrowed $3,500 from another company. Monsanto found its way to becoming a behemoth due to Queeny’s perceptive abilities and, in particular, being able to produce a “good quality artificial sweetener” along with Monsanto’s early alliance with the Coca-Cola Company supplying soft drink ingredients, e.g., saccharin, Vanillin, and caffeine.
In 1935 Monsanto purchased the Swan Chemical Company, which made PCBs, and the rest is history, one could say. Monsanto has had a controversial history producing chemicals that have been banned or recalled, such as the Agent Orange defoliant 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D contaminated with dioxins.
Interestingly, Monsanto produced the active ingredient in Lysol that also was contaminated with dioxin, according to Coppolino’s historical account. Just think – that product was used to disinfect everything, including being used in hospitals.
Monsanto’s history includes Nutri-Sweet, the Copper-7 intrauterine device, and working on the Manhattan Project supervising one of the secret laboratories that developed the atomic bomb.
PCBs were banned by Congress under the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976. Coppolino points out that astrologically Mars and Chiron were in an opposition October 12, 1976, the day President Gerald Ford signed the control act into law, reflecting a cosmic pattern that occasionally sets into Monsanto’s horoscope negative aspects that affect Monsanto’s genetically modified foods ‘mission’. Coppolino does an exceptional job of jockeying between charts to illustrate how Monsanto is on a path that’s been written in the stars that also will include some unexpected events.
