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
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.
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.

Well, not Peggy Noonan except possibly when she doesn't know that the mike's hot.

Noonan puffs Palin, but privately dumps

Well, well. The manipulation is revealed...and very revealing.

Yes indeed. I wonder if this particular revelation will have an effect. In the end it will depend on the underlying decision you so wisely point out. Is society ready to use judgement or follow the manipulation?

The follow-up after tonight to the full moon will tell some tales. No one knows yet what the Obama campaign has in mind. I love their silence. Although O is going on Fox with O'Reilly Thurs. night. Unusual. I might try and catch that one.

The interesting part to me is how the so-called alternative sources are proving themselves equal to the traditional ones, speaking of Saturn-Uranus and the status quo. And here is the case in point. Noonan is the traditional side yet she shocks with the alternative.

So I think it will come down to Plutonian survival instincts by election day when Pluto is at 29.

It does get fascinating. The reality is, they are copying Obama. They always are. Or trying to. Now it's all about one speech. Gemini. And the Gemini tendency to imitate.

So we have the transit to US Mars in, O's Moon and B's Saturn-Uranus. I have a feeling B is going to figure in quite powerfully.

Thanks Jm, your post is thoughtful (and amusing) as always.
I hear a big, collective "Huh?" It's funny how there was some talk about the Saturn/Uranus...and now seems to be forgotten in some folks' minds!

I wish I had a TV (sort of) to watch O on O'Reilly. Though there's always youtube.

Chris, good to see you. The whole thing is in complete disarray, necessary for Uranian re-alignment. People pick at small things but the real story is the major aspects and the transitions they are heralding.

I don't have a TV and don't want one but I know where one is! I'm kind of looking forward to O'Reilly because O does well with powerful opposition. O is the real culprit. The biggest rabble rouser of all. But he is the kingpin with his South Node in Aquarius. He knows exactly how to handle all of it. Revolution is something he's familiar with. The rest of them are neophytes no matter how many planets in Aquarius. The SN knows.

It's unsettling. Just what the doctor ordered.

If anyone's nervous you can look at what the Repubs are doing. Completely stealing Obama's message of change. An overall cheesy imitation of the original in every way. What's that saying? When the dust settles the people will have a chance to decide on the real one or the fake one, if that matters. I've never seen the Repubs so without a rudder. Message has always been their ace.

There is also a fascinating development regarding McCain. Remember? The wannabe president? I'll cover that soon.

I think it's cumulative.

Supposedly, it had become the main story on talk radio this afternoon. These are well-known figures, so they have an audience.

If their audience is the sort to take its cues from them...well.

"Now it's all about one speech. Gemini. And the Gemini tendency to imitate."

Yes, the lateral quality of it.

I jotted down the number of times the speakers at tonights rally used the words hate, terror,privelege, evil, victory, and dril, drill, drill. I had to write it down so it wouldn't get lost in thier cut and pasting of the Obama message.

That's good news about talk radio. A lot goes on there and they really do have a finger on the pulse of what's important to the average person.

Very interesting. And I agree that it's cumulative.

My hat is off to you, fernmountain, for listening. After last year I knew I couldn't do that again. I was ashamed to be a member of the human race.

Republicans are wired for the emotions you mentioned, although some are not as hateful and frustrated. It's impotence primarily so they can't help themselves. Amazing absence of positive message. Their pain is awful. I caught some of the cries tonight which didn't emanate from the solar plexus like the Dems. Brutal. It evokes pity if only they weren't in power. Soon they won't be. There are some Republicans that are reasonable, even decent people, and I wish they could get the party back.

I did catch part of the VP speech and I breathed a great sigh of releif. She can be ignored if she even makes it to the election. Terrible voice, no authority, stiff, cold, nasty, and not at all genuine. The people won't fall for it. Not this time. Obama has been ignoring her almost entirely. He's smart.

Her speech was technically good, but flat from what I heard. Her meanness seemed petty (pit bull, obama put-downs, etc.) and she started out OK but lost her juice pretty quickly. Something not right about the whole thing so there could be some more surprises. The voice is really ridiculous. She's a lightweight. They'll try to do a marketing blitz, but I have my doubts. Appeal to the common American? A sweetheart Mom?I don't think so. Against O and Jo?

Oh God, there's madness all around. Thank you for your reassuring words of advice. My question is, what does all this bode for Pluto in Capricorn? How do we survive this era of "truthiness." And please, any tips on how to retain a sense of humor would help. What part of one's chart can one lean on for that?

HA HA! Madness is right!

My own feeling is that it bodes well for Pluto in Capricorn, not without major hardships of course like all long Pluto transits. The important thing is to try not to be afraid. We're kind of stuck here as is and have to take what comes. But I'm looking at the Pluto trine to Uranus in a few years as a time of some relief. Things are already a little better.

Remember being in the throws of Pluto in Sagittarius? It was terrible but here we are in pretty good shape. A lot of us. We get through. I don't worry about the future because it doesn't help and I trust that I always have the capability to deal with it. So far that's been the case.

As far as Pluto in Cap goes, there is a possibility of severe times, but I also see a possibility of a renaissance in some ways. That's why so many of us want to get Obama in there.

Tonight was the age old horrible hate fest of the republicans with no change. I'm pretty sure the public is going to reject the extreme negativity, the joy in cruelty towards others, and the poisonous nature of their politics. Hideous. But we have to go through the entire process. It was very clear tonight. But no different from last year. And that's the clue. The lack of change.

On humor, anon, I can assure you that if I continue my blog you'll find a steady diet of that here. Some people are naturally able to laugh at themselves and things, and others lean toward a serious approach. But if you lack humor yourself, you can do many things. Funny movies and books, being around humorous people, and even looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing the absurdity of our own psychological games. You are in control.

I find that the very best way to get through it all is not to believe in the omnipotence of the moment. It's quickly leading to the next event and things change and change and change. We get over everything.

This week is the kick-off to the election and so it's over-dramatic. A lot of it will be meaningless soon. What's important endures.

Basically remembering to be a little philosophical, the great gift of Pluto through Sagittarius. Sagittarius teaches us how to roll with the punches. Jupiter in the chart is a clue to humor and good spirits. Sometimes Uranus for absurdity. Venus for ease and pleasure. Sun for confidence. Mercury for your own mind control. Neptune for escape. So they all can be used as coping mechanisms. It's up to you. But sometimes it does take practice. Bank on your assets and don't listen to everyone. Pick and chose. And breath deeply occasionally.

Oh and btw.... I panic, too, but I incorporate it into the whole pantheon of emotions, letting none dominate. They all have a purpose.

Jm, sorry to go off topic but do you all think about Cheney going to Georgia to unveil the 1 billion dollar 'aid package' the American Govt. is paying? I only read about it here:

Any thoughts on the astrology of this parallel event? As a relative learner, I'm stumped!

Mpk, thanks for the acknowledgement.

Chris, I don't know anything about it. Give me a minute to investigate.

The main thing is to stay cool. I mean really cool right now. The storm is unleashed and people are tapping into the truth. Pluto going direct. All you have to do is listen and you can hear it. "The sound of a million voices," as Obama says. I keep in mind the Galactic Centering of his nomination and I think we can overcome the obstacles. His base is on fire right now, along with many Indies.

I was reminded of something important. When Obama made his first speech and talked about unity, Red and Blue, it struck a deep chord. The forces are trying to get culture wars going again and somehow if we could remember that we're all in this together our chances of success are great. I mean ALL of us. So resisting the attempt to start the massive hate would be the wisest thing in the world. I'm starting by not hating the players who spoke tonight. They are pawns in the cosmic game.

The panic can be controlled and used. Another wise move considering the Saturn-Uranus opposition.

I think the Georgian War was started as an attempt by the Neocons to defeat Obama on national security. It failed. They can't use that now with Palin involved. (And please remember FISA -- he anticipated this). So they've gone back completely to the old standard -- wedge issues and culture wars. And this woman is not going to be their messiah after all. All that will fail too. Nothing works against Obama. They are not in his league.

Watch for him to continue exactly on message. "More of the same". He'll be doing small venues and then after the debates the huge rallies to bring us home.

When you see how unified the Dem Party became, you can really see the possibility in all of this. Unity is a temporary technique. Conflict is needed too, but not the tired culture war stuff. Enough!
