Is Everbody Fully Awake?
I have no choice but to be amused sometimes with Uranus aspecting almost every planet in my chart. This country just got jolted. The whole populace is nervous. It's the Uranian "finger in the socket syndrome" and I know it well. My sympathies.
So the new moon in Virgo set the stage for the full moon conjunct Uranus, and the awakening is in full gear, all a part of the big Saturn-Uranus opposition important to the nation's growth. The unbelievably outrageous possibility that a TV broadcaster wingnut beauty queen could become president of the United States of America is shocking indeed. One wonders about the exact nature of reality. Part of the point with the Uranus-Neptune mutual reception also in full gear.
Oh well. After scurrying about toying with insanity for a moment, the country will settle down. Briefly. And there's still that full moon to contend with. One thing interesting is the crossing of party lines. The fear is all-inclusive. The well-being of the country appears to be a consideration.
Uranus and Panic
Sometimes the shot of panic chemicals is necessary, sometimes it's for pure sensation. It does seem to be required now. One thing to keep in mind is the utter terror of the Republicans after the out-of-this-world Democratic Convention which remains in the psyche of the people and will root and grow further. Obama's speech might have been the final deciding factor for the electorate. The Republicans are in reaction mode, with no message and no idea of where they're headed or what they're doing really. They're doing what they have always done. But this is Uranus.
The full moon at 22 Pisces will square USA moon in Gemini (communications), thus the media explosion, already in motion after the Uranus station at 22, and now in exact square. The new pop star has a degree in communications so that adds to the pot. The trustworthiness of news reporting is definitely in question. Big time. And that includes ALL sources, corporate media and alternative. The Tower of Babble is at its height. The truth has fled and is weaving its way into the whole fabric soon to expose its work.
Pluto goes Direct
Added to the Uranian madness is the Pluto station ending revealing the reality of emotional manipulation in the media. Where is one to find the answers? What to believe? In the end which is more scary? Hideous people getting elected to run the government or the public's need for titillation, scandal, and terror? Could any of this happen without the people's complicity? Meanwhile, Obama goes quietly undercover talking about the most non-sensational thing of all .... the economy.
The public is making the same mistake it always does ... giving the right wing too much power. People still see a monolithic monster they believe will defeat them as they cower and fulfill the prophesy. Pluto, Uranus, Mars, and Gemini could give them courage if things sort of go that way. Tonight's probably excellent speech is likely to turn the panic button to cosmic proportions, but no rebellion gets anywhere without it.
For those of you who prefer not to have a theocratic corrupt right wing extremist in the seat of power, here are a few reassuring facts:
a. The electorate is aroused
Here's what I suggest. Drink your favorite liquids and have confidence in yourself. I've learned to pray during Republican Conventions. Works for me. Oh, and also .. If you happen to possess a sense of humor, it could come in handy now. May fortune smile upon you.
b. Obama's celebrity image is obliterated and he can go on about his serious business unobstructed. If star worship must exist, let it reroute.
c. It highlights the urgency of electing this reasonable and able politician, an urgency destined to remain until election day.
