Tensions flare as Mercury, Mars and Pluto collide

As you know if you follow my , over the past week or so we have seen a challenging alignment of these three planets which culminated on December 13th.  Mercury just turned retrograde on the 10th so it is still moving pretty slowly, and will remain within five degrees of Pluto for the next few days.  All planets are in Capricorn, the sign that represents structures, governments, tradition.

Uranus, the radical revolutionary, also changed direction on the 5th, and its influence is very visible in the dramatic events that have transpired over the past week or so, beginning with the arrest of Julian Assange and the explosion of the Wikileaks documents – (the radical (Uranus) exposure of information (Mercury) that reveals the secrets (Pluto) that are rocking the stability of national governments (Capricorn).

Mercury presides over communication and learning, but also transportation and messages.  Mars is the fiery god of war and Pluto the god of destruction so any alignment of these two planets can get pretty intense.  When Mercury joins in, there can be a heightened chance of arguments, disputes, and traffic problems.

The explosion of  a city bus in my hometown of Chapel Hill North Carolina yesterday, for apparently no reason, is eerily reflective of this triple conjunction since it involves the element of transportation, explosion and fire.

Then there are the riots.  Rioters in England last week attacked a car carrying Prince Charles and his wife Camilla when they drove too near a demonstration against university tuition hikes.  This occurred just as Mercury was preparing to turn retrograde in conjunction to Pluto.

Two days later, tensions in Russia flared after the shooting of a football fan that resulted in violence against ethnic minorities.

Yesterday riots erupted in Greece in fiery protests against that government’s austerity measures that favor the wealthy.

In Rome yesterday after Prime Minster Berlusconi won a no-confidence vote, an anti-austerity protest ignited a firestorm of violence from masked and hooded protesters.

Garment workers in Bangladesh have for days been rioting over unfair labor practices, with over 25o people being injured and several deaths.

Other riots over the past week have been reported in Argentina, Jordan, and Haiti.

The astrological underpinning for much of this radical behavior has to do with Uranus, which in its change of direction is creating a powerful force for rebellion against the status quo.  The triple conjunction of Mercury, Mars and Pluto is acting as a spark to ignite the conflict that inspires this rebellion, but as Uranus and Pluto begin to align in their square formation next year these riots and violent protests will escalate.

Uranus in Aries is about fairness (Uranus) for the individual (Aries), and the violence (Pluto)  will be against the governments and corporations (Capricorn) that hold most of the world’s wealth.   sees the same situation that I do, but has a different take on it than I do:  “[W]e’ve created a dependent class: a herd of cattle, beholden to government for its very existence, the individual cows of which have no grasp and no concept of principles, ideas, values, property rights, our past or our future. And, given the absence of such critical education, when it should be the producers who are revolting to protest their status as the looted lambs compelled to fund it all – it’s the parasites taking the lead instead.”

No matter which side of the divide you are standing on, there’s no question that the chasm is growing wider and deeper, and revolution is coming.  Hold onto your hats!

    Excellent article, Lynn! Time to hold onto center and be the compassionate witness as we’re in for a wild ride ahead.

    Blessings to you and yours!

    Interesting take on how everything is playing out as far as the different views go. Revolution is always based on an imbalance, the imbalance here is all the wealth created and geared towards those who manipulate the wealth to have it all come to them, period. When there is such an unfair monopoly, such as in place today in America, the land of the free & home of the brave, there are bound to be repercussions.

    We didn’t become America by ignoring facts such as corruption & greed, we prided ourselves on making our own way. Without a chance to improve our lives, we are bound to revolt against the powers that hold us back. The wealthy elite have too much power in America today, the greed is unparalleled in our history. The last refuge of free enterprise is gone. Of course there will be a revolution.

    What is happening around the world is just a mere reflection of the world’s imbalance as shown by Saturn in Libra, the corruption of the power structure as shown by Pluto in Capricorn, the coming Revolution as shown by Uranus set to enter Aries. 2012 is a significant year in the history of mankind, it won’t be ignored. I pity the greedy & corrupt, Judgment Day is Here.

    With Jupiter so close to Uranus, I wonder why we don’t see more of the generosity and good will Jupiter often generates. Are we feeling Jupiter’s influence at all in these situations?

    Thanks for your comments – Angel’s words, though harsh, are emblematic of the imbalance in the world today.

    Beth, Jupiter isn’t always connected to generosity or goodwill. Jupiter’s influence is to expand and like any astrological symbol there is a positive and negative expression. Jupiter’s negative expression is arrogance and entitlement, and with the conjunction from Jupiter to Uranus we sometimes see the positive angle and sometimes the negative, it depends where the imbalance is and on what needs to be corrected.

    The truth is not harsh, just true. Perhaps cold hard facts is a more apt term than harsh. Somehow, your comment leaves me at a loss for words… I would hope you meant something else other than what you really said.

    What is emblematic of the imbalance in the world today are not my words, harsh or otherwise, but the apathy of the people and the inability to see the truth. The impartial truth that clarifies a situation so that all can see the true situation for what it is.

    The imbalance in the world today is currently shown by the planetary movements, the complete lack of vision that people are enveloped in, is the fog of Neptune, with Jupiter in Pisces emphasizing the vast illusion that most people are operating under.

      Mercury is retrograde, and conjunct Mars and Pluto so there is a lot of misunderstanding flying around. Especially in my life because my own Chiron/Mars conjunction is being affected. So please excuse me if I gave offense, Angel. I do try to maintain a perspective that is more detached rather than get caught in anger and sometimes this is misconstrued.

  6. Angel December 18, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    Hmmm, perhaps your words do not mean what they say. I understand that you are maintaining a detached focus, it’s just that there is nothing wrong with a righteous anger at the great injustices being perpetrated on the masses right now.

    My perspective is that there are many things going on in the world that cannot be ignored or glossed over as mundane world events. The apathy I spoke of did not necessarily apply to your post, so no offense meant on my part. There just seemed to be some sort of mis-meaning in your words about what I said. For if I were to take your words at face value, they essentially said that what I said was imbalanced, i.e., “emblematic/symbolizing” the imbalance in the world.

    Full Moon in Gemini Lunar Eclipse is in effect now and in the Spirit of the Season, I wish you a Merry Christmas & Peace on Earth.
