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
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.
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.
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
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
But, here’s the apparent bugaboo in an otherwise perfect chart:
That cosmic event may precipitate dramatic and traumatic events for Monsanto.
Here’s how he describes it:
As an example of how celestial energies affect earthly events, especially with regard to Monsanto and its GMOs, Coppolino points to the lunar eclipse in May 2013 that impacted several events Monsanto had to stiffen its upper lip to:
GMO producers are concerned about the push for labeling of GMOs in the U.S. and want to dialogue about the safety of genetically modified seeds, crops, and foods.
According to The New York Times, the Council for Biotechnology Information will handle answering questions to quell consumer concerns at a website that went online recently.
Personally, this writer wonders what GMO Answers.com will have to say about genetically engineered oranges.
According to The Grower website, 
According to Just Label It August
2, 2013, initial field trials for GM oranges have started in Central
Florida. For more information about genetically engineered oranges,
please see "Can
Genetic Engineering Save the Orange, and Vice Versa?"
...ought to be considered as a positive indicator that GMO labeling will become a reality in the USA, but consumers must keep pushing for it, and do some “hard ball-type” pushing.
It’s quite apparent to this writer, at least, that GMO biotechnology companies see the handwriting on the wall and are fearful that U.S. consumers will be as successful as the European Union consumers were in,
...which the U.S. is trying to negate and introduce GM trade agreements.
However, there is a large push from American farm lobby groups and international food manufacturers such as Kraft and Nestle to do away with such labeling mandates so they can sell genetically modified foods in Europe without a label (as is currently the situation in the US).
Perhaps the GM biotechnology industry has had its tea leaves read and are beginning to realize that,
“Let’s talk” can be interpreted
as “We need to persuade you to our way of thinking.”
When certain aspects are written in the stars, who knows what can happen.
We just have to keep on, keeping on.
