The Sept. 11 incident: Psychologists speak out — the need for reconciliation through truth

Psychology professionals speak about the trauma of 9/11 and why we need healing above all else. They explain why most people are not interested in the scientific facts.

Special extra interview from Sept. 11, 2021 — Journalist Steve Stars talks about the connections between AIDS, Sept. 11 and Covid. One hour.

Planet Waves FM full program from Sept. 10, 2021


Dear Friend and Listener:

Tonight’s program is a retrospective on what I’ve learned covering the Sept. 11 incident for 20 years.

You may be aware that the Sept. 11 incident and the Covid incident are part of the same astrological cycle. Sept. 11 happened under the influence of Saturn opposite Pluto of summer 2001 (which had last occurred in 1965-1966). Covid happened under the influence of Saturn conjunct Pluto (which last occurred in 1982). Whenever these planets get together, there is the same basic effect: a huge emergency and then some reactionary movement to follow.

Many Articles and Broadcasts

Over the years I have written about 20 articles examining the details of the issue. Some of them are preserved in this resource area.

“Apparently, protecting our way of life has become our way of life.” Editorial cartoons at the time of Sept. 11, 2001 made many comments about the culture of fear that was taking over the world. We forget that 9/11 included an anthrax scare, with people terrified of this substance coming in with the mail.

My only regret is not having been bolder about what I saw in the chart initially; it was all there, though like most people, I was terrified to speak up — one of a very few times in my investigative reporting career when that happened.

In the first days, I became aware of this article by a retired Special Forces master sergeant, and teacher of military science at West Point. The author analyzes elements of the official story from the stand point of what is plausible and what is possible, from a military point of view: for example, how much training does it take to pilot a jet airliner? What maneuvers are they capable of?

I discuss my point of entry into the investigation, which was discovering this photo of the Pentagon in March 2002.

As for the Astrology

My analysis of the chart is based on classical horary astrology. For that, we would temporarily set aside the opposition of Saturn and Pluto (the latter being a modern planet).

I do the chart first using just the seven planets of antiquity, as they plot out the events. Some may recall that the Flight 11 chart has Mercury rising; it is also conjunct an asteroid named for one of the most renowned flight engineers in American history, Carl G. Sauer.

However, there is also an important element when you bring in the modern planet Pluto: Sept. 11 occurs at the opposition of Saturn and Pluto.

The Saturn-Pluto Cycle: Covid and Sept. 11

Here is how Richard Tarnas described the Saturn-Pluto cycle in his 2006 book Cosmos and Psyche. A quadrature alignment is a conjunction, square or opposition.

Another cartoon from the early post-9/11 era, commenting on the anthrax scare. People were told to buy plastic sheeting and duct tape and seal themselves into their homes.

These aspects are used because they come with the most noticeable effects of any cycle: the ones that stand out and apart; the ones that tend to reveal the cycle for what it is.

“The successive quadrature alignments of the Saturn-Pluto cycle coincided with especially challenging historical periods marked by a pervasive quality of intense contraction: eras of international crisis and conflict, empowerment of reactionary forces and totalitarian impulses, organized violence and oppression, all sometimes marked by lasting traumatic effects.”

An Atmosphere of Gravity and Tension

He continues, “An atmosphere of gravity and tension tended to accompany these three-to-four-year periods, as did a widespread sense of epochal closure: ‘the end of an era’, ‘the end of innocence’, the destruction of an earlier mode of life that in retrospect may seem to have been marked by widespread indulgence, decadence, naivete, denial and inflation.”

Tarnas writes that Saturn-Pluto aspects come with a “widespread sense that one’s life was determined and constrained by large impersonal forces of many kinds — historical, political, military, social, economic, judicial, biological, elemental, instinctual — too powerful and dominant to be affected by the individual self. This sense of vulnerability was in turn regularly matched by a drive for power, control and domination.”

Further, “Experiences of deep humiliation caused by violence, violation and defeat were thus often accompanied by a compensatory need to prove one’s steely strength, invulnerability and capacity to retaliate with lethal potency.”

And somewhat more reassuringly, he adds: “Saturn-Pluto alignment periods are also characterized by displays of personal and collective determination, unbending will, courage and sacrifice, by intensely focused, silent, strenuous effort in the face of danger and death; by a deepening capacity for moral discernment born from experience and suffering; and by the transformation and forging of enduring structures, whether material, political or psychological.”

Planet Waves was On the Story

Planet Waves has documented this incident since its first days. On Sept. 11, 2001, Planet Waves published dioxin and asbestos warnings for New Yorkers on our front page — topics that were considered irrelevant at the time, and which are now part of the lingering toxic legacy of that scenario. The “pile” at Ground Zero released inconceivable amounts of both substances. Asbestos was a primary building material in the towers, and all that plastic and PVC provided fodder for the creation of dioxins.

In my first analysis of the chart, posted on Sept. 14, 2001, I warned that there was a relationship between the terrorists and the government, and that the identity of the accused enemy would change — both turned out to be true. First Afghanistan was blamed, and a war was started; then Iraq was blamed, and another war was started.

Over the years, I have done my usual leave no stone unturned routine. I still have my collection of airplane crash photo books that I used to size up the crime scenes. I remember my conversation with Steve Inskeep of NPR, my reporting colleague from the New York State Capitol Press Corps in the early 1990s (where he was then assigned) and among the very first reporters on-scene at the Pentagon after the explosion: an eyewitness interview.

I will be back with you later in the month.





    I didn’t think I would have the bandwidth to listen to this show in light of the madness of our current situation, but you have such an easy and relatable way of laying out the story — your story — that I found myself going along. And when you described the feeling of liberation that came over you when you realized what the photos of the Pentagon site were showing, or rather NOT showing — it resonated deeply with my own experience of seeing the curtain of lies pulled back over the past 18 months. Apocalypse = Revelation.

    Especially valuable was the excerpt from the film by the Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth, on the psychology of denial. I had heard this piece before (thanks to PlanetWaves) but it had new meaning this time. I am a psychologist myself, but even so, it’s been a challenge to keep hold of my own sanity in the face of the mass psychosis / gaslighting now gripping the collective. The discussion helped me to understand how fraught with landmines is every communication I have with those caught up in the denial system. As a Jungian, I think of all this in terms of shadow — the ethical task of facing the shadow…the Saturn-Pluto thing as Rick Tarnas describes it. (I was born with a very loaded Saturn-Pluto square.). And now I am replacing the term Shadow with the word Evil.

    The late, great James Hillman was always pointing out our tendency as Americans to wrap ourselves in the banner of innocence, and what a set-up that is for gargantuan betrayal. I myself am now thankful for all the many smaller betrayals I have experienced in my life, as they initiated me bit by bit into this dark territory so that I have a degree of tolerance for the truth. It would be a lot to go from the childlike state of trusting the parental authorities and the view of America (or the Democrats) as the white-hat good-guys to grokking the full extent of the corruption, indeed the evil, of the American Empire at this point. But wake up they/we must.
    The question now is — how will this happen, when, and what role can people like myself play in the unfolding? I thank you again for being a beacon of truth and humanity in these dire times. You helped me immeasurably!
