Pressures, Cracks, and Rebellion
So who's in charge anyway? George Bush? Karl Rove? Me? God? Gustav?
The whole thing is a huge complicated mess from human perspective, and astrology provides a map of the moment so you can kind-of see what's going on. The theory is sometimes called, "As above, so below." I extend it to say, "As it is here, so it is there." The weather is a perfect clue to the metaphysics of the moment.
Uranus has just gone retrograde, headed for the opposition to Saturn, and the intensity is increasing as the USA nears her election. The Uranian rebellion against the Saturnian status quo is reaching many quarters and the Republican Party is not the least of them.
Perhaps the VP pick was the trigger to get it going. The right wing of the party has become increasingly powerful and extreme over the years until it finally reached psychotic breakdown with the last administration. The cracks have been there for a long time and they could be ready to blow. They are not happy as a group. Many Republicans want their party rearranged.
Enter Gustav like some 300 pound socialist from the North. Hell has broken loose on the Republican Convention. Kind of strange that the current President and Vice-President will not be speaking. Unity appears to be absent.
Here's what's interesting. The New Moon just occurred on transiting Saturn and the Full Moon will hit Uranus in less than two weeks, highlighting the Saturn-Uranus opposition, just as the tense, depressed, ready to explode Republicans are celebrating.
It looks pretty confused. The "not ready to lead" attack has morphed into "reform". The vp pick was so sudden that its wikipedia page was jerked, amended, and replaced within 24 hours. The idea of choosing an excessive right wing Christian anti-woman woman seems to be misguided, if not ludicrous, with Pluto at 28 just about to leave Sagittarius. At least in terms of near future synchronization. Hmmm ...... 12 years too late. Rhythm appears to be lacking.
Meanwhile the Democrats have been sent into another emotional horror swirl, being easily spooked, a problem I have no hopes of seeing corrected. But the weather sure did smile on their love-in. They forgot already.
And Gustav swirls with an intention no human can understand. Weather is based on shifting pressures seeking equilibrium, as is human activity. The Saturn-Uranus opposition will find schisms and alter the structure accordingly, so it can be rebuilt with improvements and adjustments to the changing times. And changing times they are. As much as Republican Conventions exceed my sense tolerability, I am interested in what the procedure brings. Or causes. The seeds of rebellion are almost bursting, and the current campaign does not appear to be in control.
Let the festivities commence!
