New Hampshire and Dependence

The state of New Hampshire: June 21, 1788
Sun: 0 Cancer
Jupiter: 6 Cancer
Mercury: 22 Cancer
Uranus: 28 Cancer
Mars: 29 Leo
Neptune: 18 Libra
Moon: 4 Aquarius
Pluto: 17 Aquarius
Saturn: 10 Pisces
North Node: 16 Sagittarius
With four planets in Cancer and a transiting moon in Capricorn, New Hampshire chose to stick with the establishment. And so it is. The loss is good for the emerging leader. He can deal with defeat right off the bat and build his character, strength, and stamina. The moon today crossed his Saturn in Capricorn. The opposition representing the status quo remains as a rock of "granite" that can be managed through experimentation.
Nothing is inevitable now, a perfect place to be. That in itself is release from oppression.
Extreme melodrama accompanied this voting excursion, but New Hampshire's Mars at 29 Leo certainly likes that. Trine transiting Pluto at 29 Sagittarius. The transiting south node in Leo just on that spot contributed to the snapping hysterics, sparkling tears, end of the road for one, meteoric rise for the other, jubilant trains going directly to Shangri-la, and so on. Probably just as well. Those moments have a function.
It's wild. The United States has almost the same Cancer pile-up as New Hampshire. Separating from the familiar and all that jazz. Mars does indicate friction and possible clean severance when the time is conducive. When Mars turns direct in awhile and comes back to cross the US Cancer planets, I wonder whatever will transpire? Anything goes, these days.

Addendum: Something very depressing in the air today. The status quo is stale, hard, and decidedly tasteless. New Hampshire has Mercury in Cancer square Neptune trine Saturn in Pisces -- a mental mechanism prone to emotionalism and fantasy. I've decided to refrain from taking their behavior seriously. The melodrama was not to my liking. The reverberations fall flat. I want my money back.

The Democratic party is once again faced with a decision: whether to stay with the known, the familiar, and the "experienced" or whether to accept a new generation of leadership composed of those who have not had power or the experience of governing. If you believe, as I do, that the early 21st century is an age of huge transition -- of globalization, of information, of failed states, of climate change, of rising new powers, and so on -- then leadership hamstrung by old arrangements and commitments will not do.

Gary Hart says it well. Sagittarius. Aries rising.

It's so not about the personalities. Much bigger than that.

I feel there is a concerted effort going on right now to scare people from taking any hopeful action. The media is absolutely saturated today with violent propaganda. This is normal, but it seems to be turned up a notch.

Mpk, very interesting. Great observation. I think it's the 29 Pluto in Sagittarius testing to see if the people can handle it. I got the same feeling about scaring people from positive action. Hope got completely unleashed in Iowa and it terrified the populace. I'm not sure I've ever felt a wave as genuine as that. It always goes this way. The clamping after joy.

I think it will emerge again to see if they've gone up the notch required. Back and forth until Pluto leaves in a few weeks and Mars goes direct.

The universe is asking if they're ready to take the fool's leap.

The media saturation is interesting. Another lesson getting through is how misleading the media are. This is part of the leap. It appears they can't hide it anymore. Their power has diminished a tiny notch.

It reminds me of the charge you talk about. The jump in current.

Yep. I keep talking about this and of course it falls on deaf ears. Global violence has gone way down especially in the last 20 years. And it appears to be continung the downward spiral.

This is something. How afraid the world is to face it and deal with the adjustments

There are many factors. For one, the economy based on war and weaponry is in jeopardy. Nuclear weapons will probably soon be archaic. They are too expensive to maintain. Now the powers have gotten themselves in an impossible trap having to manufacture and buy these things that probably never will be used. People have no idea what has happened. The emerging countries would love to prosper but the expense of the weapons is outrageous. And with people not wanting to fight? The rulers are in trouble.
