I understand that the oath went haywire and they made quite a big mess of it. I think that's actually reassuring. Gives it humanity. Very very interesting as it shows the opposite of unity and harmonic flow. "We Are One" has probably maxed out. I thought we were a couple hundred million according to the latest figure. No human on earth can make that into 1. Especially such a beautifully diverse nation such as ours.

The beginning tells the story. The working together in some monolithic unified perfection is unlikely to happen. Unraveling might be more like it. I'm actually surprised that they bungled the ceremony but in the last days I was beginning to get that feeling. Everything was too perfect through the whole campaign and election. And all the while an undercurrent of desperation. They messed up at exactly the perfect time. We can now prepare realistically. When the desperation abates, relief will come to an extent. Facing the truth can be quite a relief.

The reaching across the aisles will probably turn into punches as the unity within both parties disintegrates and through the seven Uranus squares we could very well see people standing up for themselves and a lot of conflict in the halls of power. Kennedy's attack today is a sign. The 29 Scorpio Moon indicates mega power struggles. Very very deep into that 29 end. And singularity, not unity, is indicated by Uranus in Aries. I would love to see lone figures speak up. The SN in Leo says there will be no mythic heroes in the end.

How much will get done? Maybe not a lot as Pluto reveals the corruption in the entire system and they scramble to run for cover. Their nefarious deals might get the miners' light. Those who are ethical will not be afraid and hopefully they'll come to the fore. Capricorn demands ethical application of laws ideally and if we want justice we'll have to work for it ourselves. Do you really expect any of the established ones to suddenly act right?

Uranus conjunct Jupiter opposite Saturn and square Pluto does not look like a walk in the park with roses, frills, and perfect sunshine. It looks fantastic to me, full of energy and tremendous backbone, which is what is required to stand up.

We should be feeling the conflict when the next Saturn-Uranus opposition arrives on the 31st. Anyone who thinks Uranus in Aries is sweet harmony does not know about Mars and Uranus. Square Pluto. Venus-Uranus opposite Saturn in the chart also point to relationship conflict. Mars in the 8th - power struggles and independence.

So people get ready!

I am not at all concerned about VOC moons, but the 29 Scorpio is a real eye-opener and I think it's the defining aspect of the next administration.

The 29th degree in my experience is the last minute chance to get all the knowledge and get it right.

Scorpio is the last of the interpersonal sector before the seeker goes on to the transpersonal and the relationship with the cosmos. So that's what I expect. Ideally, a new understanding of personal power within the whole. We can't really move forward until these people grasp these things, get a grip on themselves, and really learn the lesson of shared power, the gift of Scorpio. That includes a diminishing of the executive.

My husband had a 29*50' Libra Moon and there was no way in the world our relationship could fail. He maintained the entire thing. He was the one who always wanted to talk about the relationship, not me.

The astrological knowledge can be immensely helpful in cutting the world some slack and letting it work its troubles out in sequence. The next president has Pluto opposite his Venus now, so he's right in there, stuck in the struggle.

That's why the repeat administration. The new leaders will emerge later.

There'll be a few days of the Sadge Moon and the celebration winding down, but come the weekend reality might settle in a bit as The Capricorn Moon comes conjunct Mercury just going back into Cap.

Saturn is still in its long retrograde and it makes perfect sense to kind of calm down and take a good deep breath. The Merc retro can get to work now as people look at their own lives for a minute being released from the big drama. Hopefully. You'll start to see the theatrics in retrospect while all the experts analyze life incorrectly.

There's nothing to be afraid of. We're always prepared and stark reality has its beauty too. A lot of it. Crisp, clean lines, wisdom, and a break from the extreme highs and lows. These euphoric trips, like drug highs, have their downside. But in between is where it all gets done, assuming accomplishment is really desired.

What a fine analysis JM.

Last minutes of the Scorpio moon and Uranus energizing the miner's lanterns.

So very true.

I can already feel this one hitting. I'm trying to mobilize some community support against a bunch of cellular antennas they want to build right near my house. It's all for profit with no thought of the neighborhood.

That moon is phenomenal, tseka. That's why all the Scorpio energy in the cabinet.

Scorpio is bondage and we almost got to the Promised Land but not quite. How close. It's going to be awhile.

There's a lot to discover in those last minutes of 29 Scorpio.

Mpk that's wonderful! Action already. It's just the start. The profiteers are going to go full tilt and the government is going to restrict us like never before. Probably an increase in executive power until we can't stand it anymore. You are so smart to stand up now.

They're going to steal more of our money than you can imagine in many many small ways, like workman's comp and all kinds of benefits like that. Say good-bye to your favorite social programs. I don't like it. Not at all. But it's necessary. We're on our own more than you know. You will know.

This is thrilling that you are moving so fast. I was wrong about the break in drama and I am in another rage. Tonight they already started the manipulation after seeing once again how easy it is to control the masses.

Emergency proclamation concerning Guantanamo just to lull the gullible public into thinking they're really going to do something about torture. They're going to do it someplace else while you think they're such good guys. Burns me up! This is terrible. I hate these sudden emotional 11th hour theatrical bullshit games. Like those goddamned terror alerts. GRRRRR....

I caught a couple lines of his speech. He threatened to defeat the evil enemy just like George Bush. Where am I? Oh yeah. In the same place. Later for the Promised Land.

Once again, I'm thrilled about your action.

. But it's necessary. We're on our own more than you know. You will know.

I'm not surprised, that's why I haven't accumulated anything that can really be stolen. But the imposition of those things near my house does get me riled up. I don't know if there's anything I can do to stop it, but I find it quite nefarious how it was handled. It looks like I'm drawn into something in spite of my desire to stay out of it.

You know, it's so easy to see. And it's no big deal because things work out eventually, but just look at it.

Murderous rampage in Gaza with a big US explosives sale to Israel. Suddenly a truce just in time for the inauguration with it's promise to contine the war on Moslems. Then elections in Israel. The beat goes on. It's too obvious. You'd think they'd be better criminals than that.

One can hope for some Plutonian machinations but still ... the people have to help.

That's where I am exactly. There is no way on this still green earth that the authorities aren't going to close in on us during this transit. It's barely begun. When they start to close in on your home and property it can be extremely painful. People get going then and sometimes they win.

We can and will do something to protect our interests. We can triumph just as easily as they can. They have money, we have numbers and something else that can't even be named. Some sort of spirit or something.

We have to stick up for ourselves. They will not do it with Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. We will learn one way or another. Moving now just ahead of the game is such a great idea.

I have often spoken against the "we" and "they" mentality and in the end it truly is "us." But when Aries squares Capricorn it's temporarily a battle between the system and the individual.

I wonder what would have happened if those 2 million people that showed up for the innaguration ball yesterday, showed up in March 2003 to protest the invasion in Iraq...

Watch what happens later this week when the moon goes into Capricorn. There's a desperation undernearth it all that will eventually surface. It's impossible for disappointment not to follow - big later on - so maybe this is exactly what's needed to face reality. It's macabre. That 29 Scorpio Moon. It speaks of an ending, so maybe we're close.

The deep sorrow is revealed. The fierce longing. It's unreal. The boy king (thank you anon).
I weep.

There's a strange sensation in the air with the bungled oath. Almost reassuring. A moment of truth piercing the fantasy. We'll be OK.

The invasion was how I got pulled into this. Operation Iraqi Freedom, with deep throated announcers, like a hollywood movie, then the televised invasion complete with fiery bombs in Baghdad and the toppled evildoer. What a show.

This feels the same way. A mockery of history while we gleefully continue the wars and include everyone but mostly everyone.

Oh well. Maybe I'll take up knitting.

I took up my knitting, and spinning too, after a long lapse. It's very therapeutic. There is a whole new cultural subset, the "bitter Knitter," heheh.

HA HA! That's so true. I think women have used it throughout history as an outlet for those feelings.

Things have calmed down and I am greatly relieved. I'm beginning to prefer boring, stable reality. Sort of a flattish line on the graph. Never thought I'd see the day although I always knew that nothing was really happening at any given moment.

I'm leaving you a note under the grapes shortly.
