Saturn, the planet of manifestation, Lord of the physical world, the GRIM REAPER, death, time, obstacles, limitations is at the 29th most critical degree of SCORPIO now which is also the sign of DEATH, rebirth, transformations, power struggles, secrets.
We are in the critical death period. The deepest darkest most dense SCORPIONIC intense part of the crucible. This is the dregs, the blackest, most fearful, shodowfilled part of the entire zodiac. Like the animal which Scorpio is named for, Scorpions will sting their enemy without remorse, they are cold calculating killers. Yesterday I was thinking about all of this and the phrase “THE HORROR, THE HORROR.” from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness appeared in my mind. I woke up to find the news.
The terrible TALIBAN shooting which killed 133 children at a military school on the 16th is part of the crucible. My heart goes out to all the parents and the families of those killed in this bloody massacre. Terrorism, I wondered where this modern scourge came from. I remember the first mention of it in 1975 at the Olympics against the Isreali’s.
Malala Yousafzi who was herself a target of the Taliban in Pakistan spoke out that we must stop the Taliban scourge. The President of Pakistan publically stated there will be revenge for every child killed.
The intensity of the 6th Uranus Pluto square unleashes unexpected chaos and TERRORISM in the form of the hackers who ransacked through Sony Corporation. Uranus is the Internet and Pluto is secrets power, control. Cyber terrorism is another literal manifestation of this energy. Welcome to modern age warfare. The Group who seem obviously to be working for North Korea over the comedy movie “The Interview” with Seth Rogen and James Franco are threatening 911 type attacks in America. How bizarre is that? That is NEPTUNE in PISCES which is already being squared by SATURN. La la land and reality colliding. That’s the next major aspect we have to deal with the next few months. We are all falling through the Rabbit hole collectively.
The war against Terrorism is like cancer, it is a war against our own shadows, our own selves.
So look deeply into that sector of your own Astrology chart and circle the last degree of SCORPIO, it is the test of death in 2014 which we will have to repeat in mid June 2015 when Saturn Retrogrades back to 28 degrees, turning direct August 1 then dragging us through the last terrible degree until September 17 when Saturn finally enters Sagittarius for the next 2.5 years.
We must all look our own shadows in the face, many don’t want to look, are afraid of what they might find. Just like in the Fairy Tales, we must look into the dark mirror, open the black box,dive into the dark well the deep pool, enter the forbidden cave in order to gain the prize. But that’s not why we venture on.
Be brave and strong and fearless, use Jupiter in Leo’s STRENGTH to guide you. Death also carries rebirth and help from those who have passed on and are in spirit form. You can call on the dead to help you to have strength. Just like in Harry Potter.Wwhen all else fails, USE MAGIC.
CARD Of the DAY
HARRY POTTER TAROT
The planet is there for a reason now. Use Jupiter Retrograde to go back into the fear, the obstacles, the greatest struggles, your own shadows, yes those you get triggered by emotionally. Look at what is it that triggers you. Those people, the ones you can’t stand, be it a religious group, a person, fat people, “dumb” people, government officials,- OK that’s different. Look at all of those people as disowned parts of yourself and accept them and send love to and Bless those parts.
Politically though, unless we all do this the situation can’t entirely change. Those who hate are in fear and ignorance. Ignorance and hatred and fear because of religious fanaticism and violence can plunge the entire world into darkness once again. We must not allow that to happen.
A week from now with Saturn in Sagittarius it will seem that everything will magically change. There will be renewed hope and optimism even with Saturn there. You can be your own Wizard or Fairy Godmother.
But taking responsibility for your own shit is the first task.
Saturn is limitations and Sagittarius is international relations, religion and laws. There will be International co-operation to stop terrorism and the Taliban for sure. Borders will be built, and maintained. There will be prison camp areas where certain religious fanatical groups will be contained. There may be mind control technique used to rehabilitate religious fanatics. There will be laws about what can be taught about religion. Immigration to foreign countries will also stop. No more refugees status. There will be an end to liberal tolerance of religious intolerance. Many foreigners will be sent back to their countries of origin unless they agree to live by the laws, language and tolerance for women, gays and secular societies. Holland, which is a very tolerant country implemented this policy years ago. America cannot stay in a Christian Fundamentalist mindset in this day and age either. Teaching creationism is equal to any religious fundamentalist teaching.
It may not be actually that easy. But Sagittarius is Hope and faith and higher vision and inspiration. Saturn will keep us grounded and visionary. We will be picking up speed. I will write more about Saturn in Sag. and how to prepare you for the final critical part f the journey next Summer. I think I will teach a long course on that one.
