Something big is happening in this country. Some people are afraid. Almost everyone is stunned.
The sudden release of years and years of repression and inaction is underway, coming out of the loins of the body politic. Years and years of building obesity, epidemic anti-depressant use, cultural decay, boredom, fear, burning towers, a massive flood, terror, threat of nuclear annihilation, and a history of domination by war profiteers have culminated in nationwide action to overthrow the status quo. The people are also crashing through 400 years of American history.
Every revolution starts with inspiration and a religious element. There has to be an inordinate amount of faith to do what was perceived as impossible and go against a massive fixed force. Confidence is essential.
Many people talk about Uranian transits as being violent and horrifically upsetting, but being a Mars-Uranus native, myself, with eight major Uranus aspects, I can attest to the fact that it is sometimes otherwise. On occasion, it's liberating and exciting.
It started when the north node went into Aquarius, and Saturn went into Virgo to begin the Saturn-Uranus opposition, which will be exact to the minute on election day. The opposition continues until Jupiter and Uranus go into Aries. There's no getting out. The remainder of the Aries-Capricorn transit will be the nuts and bolts of the new working its way into the old. The wisest revolution would not seek to destroy the old, but would use what is good to its benefit, discarding what isn't useful. Pluto will take care of that. First things first.
Talk about Uranus and the unexpected.

Some Adlai Stevenson quotes. Some of you don't know him. Kind of a kicked- back pol.

"I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them."

"In America, anybody can be president. That's one of the risks you take."

OK . . . i will admit to a sneaking fondness for Uranus and Uranus transits. :-) They do keep life interesting and my Fixed sign side from stagnating!

It's amazing how unique we all are and how each situation is different and unpredictable.

My feeling was that political change was coming with the Uranus transits because there are so many repeats. While some still think a malevolent despot is in the wings waiting to incarcerate the populace, I tend to think that Pluto in Capricorn will actually provide some stability within the context. Slow and steady.

The combo of Uranus and Pluto do indicate transformation with people input. Kind of exciting, I find. But then, I'm not particularly fixed.:-)

I noticed the Doomers are a little nervous lately. What if the horrors don't come? I thought they were already here, anyway.

Uranus transits are notable for bringing events exactly on degrees. That's why the opposition at the election is so fascinating to me.

Fascinating day. Venus, Jupiter, and Pluto in Capricorn.

Sun, NN, Mercury retro, and Neptune in Aquarius.

Moon in Capricorn until the afternoon. Now in Aquarius.

Very very concentrated. Is it delineating a bridge from the establishment to the people? That could work.:-)

Yeah, Willie Nelson is reportedly worried that the elections will be cancelled, martial law will be declared, and Bush will reign again.

That sounds vaguely like some prayer I was forced to learn in Catholic school...

Are you serious joe?

The joy in the air is palpable. Hard to believe.

We need them though just for balance.

Well, it's good for humor.

The era of Bush is fading fast.

I do think that some things (that already are) will get worse before they get better.

At the same time, life goes on, and it is becoming more apparent that new seeds have sprouted.

The only thing that martial law brings to my mind, at present, is "marshmallow law". It wouldn't work, heheh.

Incredible turnout here. Most people just voted and did not stay for the caucus. It's unfortunate that the guy who operates the caucus here is a complete bore. It turns people off the process. No one appears to have patience for the work required of a democratic process.

Hey, a projected win for Obama in Colorado, I heard. Hmm.

Huge win in Colorado just as in Minnesota. About the same margin, I think. It's weird. Minneapolis is the only other place I've considered living besides Denver.

the elections will be cancelled

At the risk of death. They definitely would need the militia to stop this one.

I would tend to agree, after the turnout last night. People are energized and determined to make a change.

Uniter, indeed.

"Lisa Wolf, a 39-year-old rookie caucusgoer, weaved her way through jammed hallways at a suburban Minneapolis school to cast her vote for the Illinois senator.

'We need new blood. Enough with all-in-the-family administrations,' she said of her vote. 'I'm sick of the same-old, same-old.'

Captures the sentiment perfectly.

LOL. This is the funniest thing I've read here in a long time! There is definitely a grain of truth.
