Uranus, Aries, and Revolution

"Starting in 2009, tourists with deep pockets will be able to enjoy something fewer than 500 people have been lucky enough to experience --- spaceflight. For $200,000, if all goes well, they can orbit for two and a half hours in Virgin Galactic's Space Ship Two. Above is the concept drawing of Spaceport, America, to be built near Las Cruces, New Mexico".
I don't know how lucky that is, since spaceflight is supposed to be rather upsetting to the stomach, but some people don't mind. It's interesting how commercial spaceflight and supposed alien landings will and did take place in the same spot. The immediate years ahead do look like they could be innovative and interesting.
80 years ago, Uranus began its transit of Aries. There were major events at the time including the Great Depression in America. The results of the depression led to revolution in farming techniques, banking methods, business practices, social organization, governmental spending, and many other areas. A new country emerged.
In two years, Uranus travels Aries once again. Last time it squared Pluto in Cancer and the world experienced insecurity and dependence on the system. This time the transit squares Pluto in Capricorn, a different relationship. More adult. In the 1930s the government bailed the people out of trouble. This time I think it's the reverse. The people are rescuing the government.
A presidential election is occurring in the US exactly under a revolutionary Saturn-Uranus opposition with the north node in Aquarius. The choice is not so much who people like, but who can manage the government through the Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries years just ahead, starting halfway through the next administration. Just the government. Believe it or not, that doesn't mean the whole country. It's a division of labor.
I anticipate a charge when Uranus ignites in Aries in 2010 with Jupiter alongside. It's the start of a new 84 year cycle of survival. Just like in the 30s, but this time the people are stronger and more experienced. All they have to do is recognize their position. The more the government officials take care of their jobs, without a whole lot of hullaballoo, the more we can do ours. Spaceports require some concentration to construct.

Interesting that Las Cruces means The Crosses. In Piscean terms, the Christian cross. In Aquarian terms, perhaps, a crossroads or meeting of civilizations, inter-galactic or otherwise.

Well. Last night in my drawing class my instructor told me all about the space elevator that apparently coming with the fine-tuning of carbon-fibre technology.
'Then you can tell people you heard about it in art school,' he said, which made me laugh.

The thing is, I wonder how the heck this will be possible without a change in consciousness...or maybe it's already happening...how is one to know these things?

I don't want to be one of those people who wake up and feel like a stranger in the world around them, but the whole space issue confounds me, as I don't see much in terms of psychic expansion on the world scale. Perhaps my eyes are sewn shut by my own nervousness?

I didn't think of that joe.

Nor do I.

Who can see springtime in winter? The wind speaks of change. Of course, it always does.

And yet, five months ago, the head of the army, General Casey telephoned a journalist, asking him to come and talk to the new generals in the army -- to the colonels selected to become brigadier generals. The journalist replied in disbelief, Are you going to provide security or should I bring my own? And the general said, No, you'll be fine. And he said, I want you to come and talk about State of Denial and what happened. I also want you to talk about how we do not have a process to decide to go war.

"It was extraordinary", the journalist later said, remarking how with the earlier war in Vietnam something like that could not have happened.

The journalist went on to say, "The bottom line is essentially it's not just the President and the Secretary Of Defense or the people at the top, it's the colonels and the one-star generals who have to insist -- not by obeying/disobey orders -- but by insisting --

"Now, waitaminnit. We're going to war -- WHY? What are we going to do after we get there? What is it going to look like? What is the relation--?

"All of the things that--you, in making one of your business decisions, have a process that is so much better than the process they had in making the most important decision that this country has made in this -- clearly -- in this twenty-first century so far. ...They had all these meetings. Fifteen meetings spread out over time going over the top secret code word Polo Step war plan. And they never have a meeting about whether they should go to war. It's all about, how do we go to war. That's as if someone's deciding to make an acquisition that's major and all of your meetings are about how to do it rather than the crucial first-step question, Should we do it?"

Someone then asked the journalist, "Are there creative minds in Washington?" The journalist began, "It's a good question," and then, deadpan, "Let's take a poll."

"The problem is that the candidates get so caught up in what I call the plumbing of getting elected -- the polls, the organization, the raising of money -- and the poetry of being president gets left out, and the poetry is not something that's just spontaneous and simple, it's having a process to examine problems and really weigh it and think about it.

"Now, it's just astonishing", he continued.

"December 20th -- so just over two weeks ago -- President Bush had a press conference before Christmas, and the reporters asked him -- tried to get him to comment on the [election] campaign.

"And he wouldn't do that. And they said, Well, what does it take to be president?

"(I don't know why people didn't cover this -- it was an astonishing moment!)

"And he said, Okay, I'll answer that question. And his first answer -- which you would expect -- he said, A president needs to have a number of principles and stick by those principles.

"But then he said, The second thing a president has to have: he needs to have a process and people in his or her administration who will come and tell him the unvarnished truth.

"And there was a wistfulness in the way he said that, at this point in his presidency, as if he did not -- for a long time -- have a process or people who would come tell him the truth and insist on rigorous examination of alternatives and consequences. And it's just not there.

"Now, in earlier interviews with President Bush, I would ask him about, you know, What about A or B or something, and he kept going back to this line about I'm a gut player, I go by instinct, I'm instinctive, I don't play by the textbook. Okay. If you as president or C.E.O. don't play by the textbook, you need someone who is going to play by the textbook. And that process has been missing.

"...And then advisors telling him that it was going to be easy: Paul Wolfowitz, who was Rumfeld's deputy in the Department of Defense, said that the Iraq war was going to take seven days. Seven days. We're, what, in the sixteen hundredth day. We have more troops now there now than almost as many as we did on the day of invasion.

"...So process matters. You call them creative minds; I would say you need a system. And on my list of lessons from using and misusing information is 'All good work is done in defiance of management.' You need somebody in the organization who is going to say, Unh-uh. Waitaminnit. I don't think that's right! We have to really examine and dig deep on this."

I didn't watch the Dem debates last night but from what I hear they acted like recognizable homo sapiens with Pluto almost in Capricorn.

I found this fascinating analysis of the event. No wonder I love intelligence.

Pleasant, relaxing, and well paced

How ironic that the writer of that original comment has misspelled overseas as "oversees."

We Americans do indeed need to oversee the voting. Otherwise it'll just be stolen again, or stacked, or hijacked, or skewed-- take your pick.

Excellent. :-) Implosions averted. Although I'm not opposed to a few more tests along the way.

Good reference point. It's often revealing to read something from a more unaligned perspective.

Joe! How fascinating. They do have a more distant perspective which could help.

That's why I'm so upset about the blatant voter suppression in Nevada now. But it's being watched at least.

It's been going on rampantly in both parties forever and people do nothing. Incredibly huge task to police this, but if we don't do it, it won't be done.

MLK Day is next week and I do think this election is largely about that problem. The right to vote means nothing if it's prevented in devious ways. We the people are in charge even though it's a daunting job. Just a protest when we see it, like Nevada now, is a start. If people devoted energy to it, and took some away from the theatrics, it would be wonderful. A vote is no small thing.

Still, I'm glad about the enthusiasm this year.

Very very very refreshing. It makes politics enjoyable. The fear they bring out in people who are aligned is interesting so there must be a community catharsis in their pop theater. But not everyone is a bad theater lover Some are in the laboratory.

The question for me is why does it take so much dishonesty to bring about emotional catharsis and is this the road to honesty? They are laced together. I've always had a huge problem with the lying manipulation and have a hard time detaching.

Maybe the sharp pain of the manipulation triggers the release. A psychic surgery. If only the healing would be apparent. Maybe it is.

The thing that bothers me most about the S&M ritual between celebrities and the public is its relentlessness. It has little pause. No thrust and parry. Out of rhythm and obsessive. The lust is hard to control once is gets unleashed and the crowd frenzy arises.

You saw last night when it did stop, how communication can be civil with less emotion, usually not enjoyed by the public, yet now it's happening. I thought is was possible that when Pluto entered Capricorn, it would become slightly more dignified. It will be interesting to see what happens in Jan. when Pluto returns to Sag.

The best part is how quickly last week's emotional orgy stopped. Almost by decree. I think there is a slight change in public desire. Also interesting to note how Karl Rove keeps popping in to arouse the poison and he's being ignored, so it seems. I always thought his Capricorn stellium was here to teach the people how to control themselves ultimately. Very interesting. Perhaps a change in style is possible.

In the end the degradation originates in the public so it's up to the people to find pride. One would think it would be favored now.

People don't seem to realize how much they are in charge. But they determine, not the politicians. They do what we say if you really look at it. And quickly. Last night was a testament.
Fascinating.

I have no idea whatsoever why people don't recognize their power.

Indeed. I enjoyed browsing the comments section.

Well, I think that it's okay to be able to react as needed in the moment. Ultimately, our humor or sense of proportions brings us back to a broader perspective.

Politics can be disillusioning if one examines it closely; people scrambling for power on all sides. Mostly, I don't trouble myself too much over foreground details in politics. Focusing on personalities tends to obscure the overall trends. Perhaps the background movements, though less easily discerned, are usually the larger ones and more indicative of what will eventually result.

"Almost by decree. I think there is a slight change in public desire."

I do think that there's been a shift, unremarked by most. People are discussing things from a slightly more inclusive perspective. It's like how a driver who steps on his brakes too suddenly can cause traffic congestion miles behind him. Although it might appear from close up to be a localized event without consequences, there is a subtle propagation for quite a ways.

I believe that we're just watching the ripples in the public personas of the candidates. Major decisions have already been made in mass consciousness, on levels we can feel more than see.

An otherwise good leader may be ineffective with a particular group, and an otherwise good group can go wrong with an leader unsuited to them. It's a process, and what a process it is. Existing subprocesses must improve or fall by the wayside as new ones appear to take their place. We now have a lot of Internet talk going on outside of more regulated channels, and it is having an impact on governments besides ours.

Me too!

Of course. Thankfully. But the foreground and the scrambling also have lessons to teach. I think a lot is subliminal no matter where you look. Saturn in Virgo now is drawing attention to the details.

Excellent excellent point. I like your brake analogy too.

Isn't it amazing? The political awakening and global connection.

Saturn being the voice of "experience" and Uranus the "change" agent? Hmm, interesting themes in collective consciousness.

Beautiful relationship. It's happening in each one of us too.
