The US Saturn Return

It’s no secret that the United States is not the superpower it was even twenty years ago, when American manufacturers clothed people all over the world, and American farms provided grain and milk to assuage global hunger.  I would argue that the actual turning point came in 2006, when the US progressed Mars turned retrograde and the drive of the country began to weaken and dissipate.

Today is the second phase of America’s Saturn return, the time when transiting Saturn returns to its place in the birthchart of the nation.  You can read more here about America’s Saturn return from the first phase which began last October.  Meanwhile, there’s plenty of evidence that the US is being tested, including a cover story in Time Magazine last week entitled “Yes, America is in decline.”

Saturn squares the Sun in the chart for the United States, so the Saturn Return means that transiting is also squaring Saturn in the US chart which sits in the seventh house of partnership and open enemies.  Who are our allies?  Who are our enemies?  Where is our power being eaten alive by enemies within the country?  These are all good questions for the Saturn Return, and questions being asked today in the US.

Day of Rage in Saudi, just as Uranus enters Aries

Could the timing be more synchronistic?  Uranus enters Aries on Friday March 11, and a Day of Rage wave of protests is planned for Saudi Arabia on that day.  Aries is the sign that is ruled by Mars, the god of warfare and aggression.  Aries teaches courage and assertiveness, and Uranus rules radical change and the breaking down of the status quo.  Uranus in Aries is a combustible mix!

You may remember when Jupiter moved into Aries and triggered protests across North Africa.  Then when Jupiter moved into a challenging square alignment with Pluto, the planet of power and control, a Day of Rage was declared in Iraq and other mideast countries.

I’ll be writing more about Uranus entering Aries over the next few days.

Uranus/Pluto and the power behind the revolution

As you may know, the revolutionary fever spreading through the middle east is not isolated to the Arab world.  In Wisconsin, protests against anti-union measures by the governor there have mobilized tens of thousands of government employees and students since February 15th.

These protests are just the beginning of what will become a firestorm of political resistance over the next year as Uranus, planet of revolution, squares off against Pluto, planet of power and control.  They were inspired by the return of Jupiter into Aries and the simultaneously square of Jupiter to Pluto in Capricorn, which mainlined confidence (Jupiter) and courage (Aries) into the souls of individuals who were fed up with the control (Pluto) of autocratic governments (Capricorn).

The face-off between Jupiter and Pluto is just above over now, but when Uranus enters Aries in a few weeks it will take Jupiter’s place in the battle against autocracy, and Uranus is a much stronger player in this game.  Uranus is at the 29th degree of Pisces now, so its influence is already filtering through.

Astrology gives us a window into the real meaning of personal and world events.  It cannot predict specific events, because (in the opinion of this astrologer) events are not predestined.  We make choices as individuals, as communities, as nations, that can alter the course of history.  But astrology does provide us with a climate report that alerts us to the energies with which we will be dealing over the next few years, and they are not pretty.

Political analysts can see the handwriting on the wall, even though they don’t understand the energetic dynamic that underlie the events.  that the protests in Wisconsin were inspired by the revolt […]

“Day of Rage” across the middle east

astrology of protestsAs I wrote a few weeks ago, Jupiter re-entering Aries in January set off a firestorm of anger across the middle east and north Africa.  At the time I wrote:

I can’t help but think this is a good thing, even though like all difficult planetary cycles it won’t be comfortable and is certain to be accompanied by bloodshed.  But balance must be achieved, and it’s the job of Uranus (and Jupiter, to a lesser extent) to emancipate the oppressed and when in a square to Pluto in Capricorn, to destroy (Pluto)  the old structures (Capricorn) that are already rotted and decayed.

Uranus enters Aries in the later part of March, but Jupiter will move ever close to a square to Pluto that culminates in mid-February.  Jupiter brings confidence and demands to be heard – Jupiter after all was the King of all of the gods on Mt. Olympus.  Jupiter refuses to take a back seat to the Lord of the Underworld, no matter how much destruction will ensue.

Today Jupiter is two degrees away from that challenging square to Pluto, and sure enough, unrest is spreading like wildfire as protesters take to the streets all over the world.

  • , protesters have encountered resistance against their “Day of Rage” against the Qaddafi regime which has left at least four dead.
  • In Iraq, blood has flowed in anti-government protests in and in .
  • In , protests continued for a seventh day and become more violent.
  • At least three protesters in have been killed and at least 60 are missing in anti-discrimination demonstrations there.

This fever is likely to continue as long as Jupiter (in fiery Aries) is […]

The astrology of Mubarak’s resignation

Tem Tarriktar of posted a chart of the resignation on Facebook yesterday with all of the associated comments.  A link to the was posted which includes a time stamp of 6:02 pm Cairo time so that is the chart that I have used.  Another commenter reports that Al Jazeera’s live blog of the events in Egypt reveals that Mubarak actually turned over the reins to the vice-president Thursday night, but I am using the formal announcement to the public as the time for this chart.

?astrology of Mubarak resignationAny event is a snapshot of a moment in time, and the astrological chart for that moment sets the tone for how that event will unfold.  This is called “mundane” astrology.  There are some extremely interesting things about this chart.  First of all, the Moon is angular at the Midheaven, suggesting that the people (represented by the Moon) have taken over the government.  There is a lot of talk right now about this being a military coup, and we see this represented by a tight conjunction of the Sun (the leadership of the country) to Mars (the military).

Neptune is angular on the descendant, the cusp of the seventh house.  Since Neptune is associated with mass hysteria and deception as well as ideals and the descendant involves relations with other nations, but also alliances that are forged within the country itself.  In this fever for revolution, no one really knows who their allies are and we are likely to see this become a big issue in the weeks to come.

This difficulty in creating strong alliances (Neptune) that will support the people (the […]
