The resignation of Van Jones: A casualty of the Saturn/Uranus opposition

With Saturn and Uranus preparing to oppose each other exactly next week, the middle of the night resignation of Van Jones as the “Green Jobs Czar” in the Obama administration may be a hint as to which of the planets is winning.  Saturn represents society and structure, and Uranus is rebellion and new ideas.  When the conservative media discovered that Van Jones had signed a petition asking then Attorney General Eliot Spitzer to investigate possible government complicity in the September 11 tragedy, the resulting firestorm among conservative pundits exacerbated the already heated debate over the policies of the Obama administration.

President Obama was elected on November 4, the exact day of the first phase of the opposition from Saturn to Uranus.  He was elected because the majority of the people in the United States wanted change.  He ran on a platform of affordable health care, bringing jobs to Americans, withdrawing troops from Iraq, and changing the partisan ways of Washington.

Every attempt that he has made to fulfill these promises has been met with fierce opposition; not because of bad policy, but because conservatives want him to fail.  The downfall of Van Jones was orchestrated not by a debate over his usefulness, but because Glenn Beck the ignorant clown on Fox News who is even more absurd than Rush Limbaugh, began to ratchet up the pressure after a group that Jones was formerly involved with urged a boycott of Beck’s show.

Many of the left are upset with Obama for continuing to try to build alliances with conservatives in order to accomplish his agenda, but they are missing the point.  In a Saturn/Uranus time such as this, any big change cannot occur without support from both sides and that requires a putting aside of one’s need to be right.  Obama, with his […]

Everything is in opposition under Saturn and Uranus

Saturn and Uranus are now within two degrees oftheir exact opposition which culminates on September 15.  As you probably now, Saturn represents conservative thinking and conventional behavior, and Uranus represents that which is new and innovative.

Perhaps this wasn’t the best time to roll out healthcare reform in the United States, since oppositional defiance is occurring not only between the Democrats and Republicans, but in splinter groups within the  as well.  The desire to be in opposition to SOMETHING is fostered by the opposition from Saturn to Uranus, and if this planetary combination is transiting something in our own chart that urge to rebel against oneself can be quite complicated.

The opposition of Saturn to Uranus has been tightly aspecting Mars in President Obama’s chart, with Saturn conjunct Mars and Uranus in opposition.  A transit of Saturn to Mars in our own chart is very like trying to drive with the brakes on.  However, Saturn has now moved off Obama’s Mars which should begin to make things a little easier for him.  When a planet in the sky is opposite a planet in our chart (a transit of opposition) we often meet the transiting planet in our outer world.

Jupiter is retrograding back over Obama’s Ascendant (the first hit was back in late March of this year) and transiting Saturn will form a harmonious sextile to Saturn in his natal chart, helping him to get things done and giving him the confidence to make it happen.  However, between October and December transiting Uranus will make the last opposition to Mars in Obama’s chart and it’s quite possible that we will see further amplification of the radical (Uranus) behavior surrounding everything he attempts to do (Mars).  This is […]

Fear and the upcoming Cardinal Cross

You’ll be hearing a lot more about this planetary event over the next few months and years.  Ray Merriman is calling the event the “Cardinal Climax,” and astrologer Gary Caton in this  in The Mountain Astrologer is calling it the “Cardinal Crisis.”  This is an alignment of planets in cardinal signs that will continue to create change in our inner and outer worlds.  The cardinal signs are the signs of action, and with various planets conflicting with each other in cardinal signs there will be a great deal of energy for change.

It’s easy to become afraid when we know something big is coming, but it’s wise not to let fear take over.  Change can be exhilarating and joyful just as easily as difficult.  This week Mars in Cancer is opposite Pluto in the sky, and although I expected major flareups in the news that has not occurred.  Nor did it occur in my own life, despite the fact that this planetary combination directly affects Mars in my own chart.  Instead, there has been a tremendous amount of energy that has been relatively easy to manage and we’re seeing that in the global arena as well.

I’ve laid out a scenario of what is likely to happen over the next few years in my radio show a few weeks back and you may want to  if you haven’t already heard it.  I’ll be writing a great deal more on this topic over the next few months, especially as Saturn moves into Libra in late October and begins to form a square to Pluto.

Meanwhile, we are working with Saturn/Uranus and the force of resistance to change.  This is the key factor that we will be faced with over the next few weeks.

Mars and Pluto prepare for battle

Mars will enter Cancer this afternoon (EDT) at which time it will be exactly opposite Pluto in the sky.  An opposition is a stressful aspect of 180 degrees in which the two planets are polar opposites, each one struggling to prevail.  Ideally, in oppositions we try to balance the two ends of the tug-of-war but until then there is an adjustment period.

Mars represents warfare and the need of the individual to defend his or herself.  Pluto represents death, transformation, and nuclear warfare.  In a battle between Mars and Pluto, there is a struggle for dominance and power.  Pluto is at 0 degrees Capricorn and Mars will be at 0 degrees Cancer.  With both signs at the 0 degree point on a cardinal axis, this is a powerful planetary formation that is likely to pack a big punch for a few days.

Mars will be in the sign of Cancer into October and until then our drive, desires, and ability to manifest our personal will, all of which Mars motivates, will be colored by our emotional sensitivities.  Mars is said to be in its fall in Cancer because Cancer is emotionally reactive; it is more difficult to be clear about our motivations and the true desires.  Cancer is the sign of nurturing and caring for others, and there is the potential for codependent behavior because of the focus on the needs of other people in an effort to care for oneself.

Issues that are likely to come up over the next few days may center around balancing our own needs with those of the people around us, and power imbalances in our relationships and at the workplace.  Conflicts that arise are likely to be tinged with hurt feelings and emotional sensitivities so […]

Listen to my take on Saturn/Uranus and the upcoming “Cardinal Climax

I spoke about this on the radio show August 9th and since I’m working on a big writing project I thought I’d  so you can take a listen if you didn’t hear it already.  At some point I’ll convert this into an article and post it on my website but meanwhile .

Remember we’re on Itunes now as a podcast (you must have Itunes on your computer).  If you listen on Itunes please leave a review and rate the show!  thank you. 🙂
