Astro-logical Forecast for Monday 11/21/11: Revolution Earth
No exact aspects today except for a potentially potent & cathartic challenge between Moon in fair-minded, peace-loving Libra and ruthless Pluto at 6:04AM ET. A cranky encounter with a moody woman? A spat over resources and other possessions? Perhaps nothing at all, because you’re not even awake at 6:04AM ET for gawdsake? Aspects from Moon move fast — blink and you might miss ’em.
Yesterday’s exact square between nebulous Neptune and Sun was reflected in many headlines. Neptune refers to oil, water and toxins. Here’s a must-read piece about all three in the New York Times Magazine http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/20/magazine/fracking-amwell-township.html?src=recg Neptune also refers to spaciness and fantasy, delightfully illustrated in this bit from The Onion http://www.theonion.com/articles/you-look-like-you-could-use-an-elizabethan-adventu,10881/ Of course pepper spray is also a toxin, and if you haven’t been keeping up on the story of the alleged police officer nonchalantly blasting students at UC/Davis and sending at least one to a nearby hospital, have a look http://www.salon.com/2011/11/20/the_roots_of_the_uc_davis_pepper_spraying/ The toxic incident has since been turned into fine art, also represented by Neptune http://peppersprayingcop.tumblr.com/ In other news, the word “fantasy” was featured in this piece on the Super Committee http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/20/fantasies-of-a-debt-deal-from-a-convivial-congress/?hp Coincidence or conspiracy?
Meanwhile, social unrest in Egypt is again in the news. Regular readers of this forecast will recall that revolution in Egypt was making news some months ago, about the time that rebel Uranus, disruptor of the status quo, was approaching zero degrees of Aries. Zero Aries is the degree of the Vernal Equinox, the first day of Spring (think it’s a coincidence they’re calling the unrest in Arab countries the “Arab Spring”)? A planet near zero degrees of Aries tends to call attention to itself — big time. And right now Uranus is approaching that zero degree again, as it moves backward through the sign of Aries. Uranus turns direct on December 10th, so we may well see more big news of social unrest/rebellion around that date — in Egypt and elsewhere, too. Here’s an example of unrest in Wisconsin, in which over 25,000 people gathered over the weekend to support a petition to recall Governor Scott Walker, suggesting difficulties that were anticipated for Gov. Walker around the early part of 2012 may well come to pass http://www.jsonline.com/news/statepolitics/feingold-signs-walker-recall-petition-to-kick-off-madison-rally-pu34cfr-134174313.html Revolution Earth?
