The Other Side


Let it fall, Let it flow
In perfect synchronization with the Pluto opposition to USA Venus, the relative collapse of her economic system has become starkly and inescapably manifest. Such a joyous cosmology we have. The people have been stun-gunned on this first hit and a real honest-to-god awakening has come, finally. Some will toy with denial - some never give it up - but gradually the country will become accustomed to the severity of the situation and in due time, the path to a new frontier will be chopped out and traveled with refreshed vigor.
It's unreasonable to expect anyone to come to the rescue, although it's perfectly natural. There is no way to stop a fall in motion. Humans do not have power over cosmic events, they are participants. And why would you want to stop the genuine opportunity to repair and rebuild on the other side of necessary demolition? You can't do it while it's tumbling. Why would you want to shortchange something good that could be the result of present circumstance? The greater the struggle, the greater the relief and reward. And it's a chance to learn to trust in life and it's larger dimension. I'm going to discuss some of the gracefully orchestrated details of this Pluto return.
Pluto opposite Venus. The first stop is Venus and the revelation of the country's economic decay. The transformation of her value system is already beginning with the jolt to the senses required to fix longstanding problems in terms of appetites, consumption, monetary exchange, and the accumulation of wealth. This configuration also depicts obsessive relationships, so parental need and compulsive dependency, ongoing problems with the citizenry, could take some new turns, with an initial increase which is now in motion. The end result is fair, mature relationships in all areas, appreciation of life's pleasures, gratitude for what we have, and the ability to release and share.
Pluto opposite Jupiter. I expect during this part of the transit that the issue of wealth consolidation is going to be paramount, and what to do with our banking system will be the big question asked. "Too big to fail" will be studied, while too small for excitement comes under the microscope, too. The dangers of speculation, the recklessness of gambling with other people's assets, the abuse of credit, the over extension in real estate done by all in the Monopoly game people love, and the lure of profit in general will be covered. The childish gimme of immediate gratification should be replaced with real financial planning, sensible budgeting, prudence, and reasonable risk for future gains and security. How much security people lose in the process remains to be seen. But with that lesson comes real Jupiterian hope to replace the superficial version based on false expectation which is in operation now. Jupiter in all its promise led to this casino we've been living in, but real joy, optimism, and love of adventure have no need to risk so much well-being for temporary gain. And it's not all material in the end. The source of abundance could reveal a few clues for some.
Pluto opposite the Sun. This could be the major turning point in the transit positioned as it is halfway, when society comes to a confrontation with its faulty governance and gets to the source of its fear and self-destructive behavior. I would plan on a crisis in leadership and maybe after that, the country can begin to get adults in the halls of power to reflect the developing maturity in the populace. American Idols don't make good executives of nations, nor do thieves and murderers. Pluto opposite the Cancer Sun is searching for the seat of insecurity and to replace it with genuine confidence, imbued with the natural care-giving nurturing characteristics of the sign of Cancer, not the fearful tribal overprotective avoidance of adult responsibility which can sometimes be the case. There could be a marked change in leadership after this point.
Pluto opposite Mercury. This is the final planet and the most interesting in some ways, with Mercury, the lord of commerce, at the uppermost point of the stellium. The nation has a natal opposition between Pluto and Mercury so this is really a return home. She was born because of unfair taxation and foreign interests cutting into American profits. But we blew it and now have destroyed our own economy through malicious trade practices. So comes the next 250 year cycle when we can redo our relationship in the modern global market, giving and getting our fair share. Fair compensation for work, fair pricing, equitable taxation, investor responsibility, enduring value, respect and dignity in transactions, and all the other lessons of ethical, mature sharing of resources in the world of commodities exchange. I will explore this further in the next article.

After the transit of the stellium, Pluto magically comes home to Pluto and America's first return, in perfect rhythm. I can't say enough what a relief it is to drop the expectations of someone getting this hapless country out of her predicament. It's happened for good reason after a long history of bad habits. The cure has to come from the source in the way only Pluto can work, after the cosmic economic shrink wrap is complete. It's like the body when disease takes over. You sometimes wish it could leave and go away, but you're stuck with it while the illness takes it course, and when the cure arrives, you realize it was all worth it. When you reach the other side.

JM another nice piece indeed. From my observations there is even more than 1st meets the eye developing. In the US Sibly chart, transiting Pluto is currently past its square to the US MC but will return on retrograde to sit on the MC for several months later in the year. The impact of this energy will be significant, as it is the 2nd and 3rd act of a multi act play involving Pluto and the US MC. The climax of that play will be more stunning than the 1st act. Also, transiting Pluto, Mars and Jupier by declination are currently forming a Magi pyramid at 17S, stationed contraparallel on the US natal Mercury by declination. Difficult discussions with several allies and nations soon could produce some forced or aggravated changes in positions, or power plays leaving uncertainty and confusion. Later when Pluto opposes Jupiter it also forms a Yod and Kite with the US north node and Uranus. The timing of that event as 2011 begins is key in any effective resolution of the series of crisis about to unfold financially, politically and in international relations. We are indeed living in interesting times.

I know you're right chiron. I noticed the transit to US MC, and I agree that something is up. I missed the yod, and I'm going to look at it later. Thank you for this. I'd like to tie it into the Saturn-Uranus-Pluto energy which you expressed so beautifully. The power plays are going to be significant, and the 29 Scorpio Moon of the administration's chart has always disturbed me. I think the US has forever been a pawn. Small stuff, easily duped and used with that elevated Neptune. Solid strength and some power might begin after the return is completed. If we ever get out of play school.

The amazing configuration when Uranus enters Aries with Jupiter and Saturn is also worth study. What I try to do is put it all together in one big overview, and I think it has something to do with Mercury and the trade thing in terms of our international redo ahead. I believe it's going to come hard. It feels like no one is in charge and we're an easy target, weakened as we are and getting more-so.

The Aries-Cap years are going to teach us something about self defense. Progressed Mars going retro. When do you think the people will catch on, if they ever will? We're about to be taken again by the government financially.

We have to be humbled, but it will take the entire return. I think our leadership later will reflect this, although authoritarian increase is a possibility. I'm stunned at the pre-school thing going on now. Incredible charade. The naivete is astonishing. When will we get serious? Probably when these events start to unfold. I realize this is all a ncessary part of the process, but sometimes it's difficult to witness. You, as a 12th Scorp, have seen it many times and have the wisdom to take it in stride. Lucky.:-)

Excellent. Any more info would be appreciated.

There is always more than meets the eye. We all need a third one.

The four transits are telling a story. I am going to look closely at that yod. The Pluto-Jupiter transit is fascinating in terms of power plays and the lead-in to the Sun tells a big tale in our leadership reckoning. In fact, I think I'll take a really close look at that transit tonight.

I want to know why the people are remaining in the dark. What would the reason for that be? The reason for the amazing supplication factor now. I thought before that it could be preparation for the shocks ahead that really bring us to life out of the stupor that has been in place for so long. The lethargy is quite something. Fortunately the leaders are in it to and unable to take advantage of our weakness. But someone might. We'll awaken just in time.

We used to have the money everyone wanted so they let us be, but now it's changing. Change was desired and we're getting it.

You, too, tseka. Your input is wonderful. I am delighted with chiron's comment. I want so much to get serious with others. The few who are following a different drum. You know how I love to piece things together. Neptune is making it fall apart, so I must be patient. In due time.

Echoing the encomiums. :o) The newspaper today is full of astounding signs of disintegration and collapse at the state and federal level. It's discouraging, to say the least.

Chiron wrote: Difficult discussions with several allies and nations soon could produce some forced or aggravated changes in positions, or power plays leaving uncertainty and confusion.

I would agree, being especially conscious as I am of the fatal embrace of the US and Israel. And jm confirms it thus:

I think the US has forever been a pawn. Small stuff, easily duped and used with that elevated Neptune.

Joe, well said as always.:-)
the fatal embrace of the US and Israel.

People have no idea what disintegration means and how much there could be. This is far different from the Depression when people still had farms and could survive on their own. We'll figure it out but time is pressing forward.

It's discouraging, but what's most discouraging is the denial that is leading to this Academy Award style show in the government. I am astonished more and more every day with this game going on. All the heroic acts that are going to save us tonight.

They are ancient players over there in the Middle East. We are toddlers stuck with our thumbs in our mouths playing tiddly winks when we get it free for a moment and get the ice cream cone out. I guess the times ahead are going to make the people here grow up a little bit as planned. I'm ready.

Thanks. Seeing it more clearly than most has been like being a modern-day Cassandra, but then you know how that role feels, too.

I refuse to watch any of this award show garbage, and haven't for a few years now. Wasteful squandering of precious resources on wastrels and their overblown egos.

Do you think that the Age of Pisces, combined with that Neptune in the US natal chart, makes the country especially susceptible to illusions and dreaming, a la The Matrix? Sort of like a synergistic effect?

Pluto square MC plus the other transits you mention Chiron has me thinking that the discussions may be with our allies but it may be that the discussion will be with the STATES.

There are issues that have been building for at least 15 years with
State Sovereignty & 10th Amendment
California has already chaptered their amendment restatement of sovereignty, April 14 1994 SJR 44
Texas Sovereignty Resolution was moving on 20 Feb (don't know outcome)
At the current moment 25 states have legislation pending, passed or in the planning to claim or declare their sovereignty / 10th amendment rights.

States are in discussions now as to whether they will accept stimulus monies from Fed Gov which carry mandates deemed unacceptable...various reasons depending on state.

Some states are looking at alternative (non fiat) state currencies. (going nowhere IMO)

There are some definite power plays happening within our own borders of these United States

I thought a lot about this right after joe. The Scorpio insight and foresight. I think it will come in handy with the Neptune you mentioned, which never goes away, but is going to be more problematic. I love your commentary and always feel relieved to have the truth.

The progressed Sun just went into Pisces, Neptune is coming next, and then Pluto. We have a lot of illusion to deal with, but the good part is the trine to our Cancer stellium. There will be ups and downs, but now is a downer, since Uranus is leaving and stepping up the negative delusions. Any repeats create a synergy, and they are always there if the lesson is important. The tragedy now is going to get worse, but eventually relief will come.

I don't watch the award show garbage either. But I'll tell you this... Tonight the TV was on out there and Steve Martin was trying to be funny. I never heard anything so unfunny in my life and some people were actually laughing. I live in the Land of the Dead, but maybe there's a better world a-waitin.":O)

I always expected the states to revolt with Pluto in Cap. I believe they will have to. The federal government is non-functioning in reality, and it's going to get worse. It's actually undermining us.

As things heat up, the stripping of Constitutional rights will increase. It's already begun, of course. But in the name of National Security, a lot is going to come down.

Each state is an entity unto itself with different resources, industries, customs, etc. Autonomy is going to be a big issue. It was always in the chip, anyway. The Civil War had more significance that people realize. I like my state and I don't want our good life ruined. Even cities might demand more autonomy, especially when strapped economically and good ideas are hampered by federal bureaucracy. I think the elite power and money grab is going to be staggering. I expect it to start with the distribution of the StimUseLess dough.

Another excellent observation as we are all being called to examine what is of true value in our lives.

Chiron, Tseka and Joe all made excellent comments.

I am expecially interested in Chiron's input here:

International relations! As we all know the whole world looks to the USA for leadership. I am particularly interested in how will the USA keep up with countries like China, India and others in areas of innovation, etc. while it is going through these growing pains and major adjustments in every area of its well being.

I share this sincere wish with you JM
The end result is fair, mature relationships in all areas, appreciation of life's pleasures, gratitude for what we have, and the ability to release and share.

Considering I can pretty much see the red carpet from my office window I did watch the Oscars tonight. Talk about a stimulus package, I think Hugh Jackman is a one man stimulus package all on his own. His opening piece was damn entertaining. The rest was the usual script except for the five past presenters per category, which was a nice touch. I needed some respite from reality and movies has always been the refuge from reality in the past.

Good question. We'll catch up in time, but I think the lag will actually do the world good as other nations find their power and confidence and the resulting natural competition spurs us to the innovation we need worldwide. Eventually cooperation might come. Power balance always shifts as it must.

I agree and was completely blown away by Mr. Jackman's talent. He also comes across as a very likable person.

I cannot take the red carpet Q&A and the teary acceptance speeches but I do like to see the fashion.

I am a big fan of Sean Penn from his surfer boy days to Dead Man Walking and I am very happy he won tonight. Although I do not agree in winner take all the glory. I think all the nominations should share equally without one winner being picked.
My 2 cents worth.

Chiron, of course you watched the Oscars. You have to keep up, with your Mercury 1. I expected a report.

The only thing I saw was the Steve Martin bit, but he never made me laugh anyway.

Most of us love movies. You should see India. It's madness.

It's interesting that this country's major contribution has been fantasy, speaking of Neptune. When movies first came out in America, the whole world waited every week as they were in serial form. Humanity fell in love with this country then.

That's why duCan's question is so good. How can we be taken seriously now? The Europeans always have lorded their artistic and intellectual abilities over us, but we have undeveloped talent once we get past the 3 Stooges stage. Once we get serious in this new era. We can make better movies.

I have no TV and I know not who Jackman is. Is he a comedian?

I've never seen a Penn film. I didn't see a movie in 20 years except Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

I've been catching up on the computer but I don't like them. I like art films and old movies when they had genuine joy. When there was excitement in the industry. The amount of money spent to make them now bleeds the joy.

Then again, as I've said, I almost became a filmmaker. So I'm critical and watch them in a different way. I'm way out of touch with my country's pop culture. I never saw Seinfeld, and I don't know a lot of the stars today. It does leave one alienated. pretty important stuff.

I was so entranced with the film medium as a child and I went all the way to the door of NYU film school, then decided on music at the last minute. I always wondered about that decision until now.

As I watch movies on my computer I see an emptiness of light in them. A sort of desolation, especially when I look at the sky. They lack the third dimension like TV, and now I'm thanking my stars I chose the live stage.

TV almost ruined my profession. When they put them in the bars, the mesmerizing power made it impossible to focus on the entertainers unless the band made a painful, loud, horrible noise to overpower. Very loud. This in turn actually repels the human creature but they don't realize it. So they get drunk, scream, and get with it. Fun and all.

At first my hunger after 20 years led my to devour movies again, but now, I'm losing my appetite. They are too demanding and give you no freedom of movement. For me they don't quite deliver. They don't leave that certain tingle of life a good experience gives.

I find I prefer the conversations of who knows who almost all the time. I slip a movie in, these days, then stray back to the conversation. And movie houses nowadays are small, stark, and lifeless. We used to have velvet curtains and beautiful lights. I think we're culturally bereft. TV has made us lonelier which is why we've gravitated to the live Internet. I think it's all changing subtly, and there's a chance for shared theatrical joy.

I agree with you JM on the film industry. I only see one or two movies per year in a movie theatre.

I am a big fan of Turner Classic Movies. These are old movies being played all day and night on a special channel called TCM. The silent ones are played on Sunday nights.

Sean Penn is a social Activist/Actor who won tonight for his portrayal of Harvey Milk. The Movie is called Milk. I haven't seen it. I have only seen 2 movies 2008/2009: DIving Bell and Butterfly and Slum Dog Millionaire.

Both of these movies are excellent and I am sure you will like them.

I am repulsed by the way Penn looks for some reason so I never pursued getting into his being. I probably never will. He looks pinched up too tight to be a great actor.

I heard about Slum Dog. Occasionally I like a modern film, but I have such great expectations that few reach them. I love artistic expression and life in general, but I probably do ask for too much from experience. That won't change. I want the very very best. I have reached those pinnacles so I know they exist.

I look for human expression to capture the essence of our lives and what makes them worth living in spite of the suffering. The great artistry that can be ours. But I do enjoy a movie for what it's worth at times. Entertainment and escape.

Ocasionally I see a film that stays with me for days and some influence my life. I'm a Fellini fan, but individual films have resonated along the way.

The old Japanese fim, Woman in the Dunes is one of my favorites. Incredible filmmaking.

And I can watch a Fred Astaire film anytime.:o)

That egg. I'm getting a clear feeling about creativity and relationships coming with the economic downturn as the real things of value come forward. Creativity always thrives when society gets blue. Maybe the inequities concerning artist's compensation will be affected as people realize how important they are to well-being. One never knows. Something is percolating in me, though. The egg really did it. It is exceptionally beautiful. And yes ... riches far more precious.

Remember the first market crash came when the moon was full in Pisces. I think there's something going on with the collective oceanic waveform gathering momentum for the break into Aries and action.

I hadn't thought of an artistic rise with Uranus leaving Pisces along with delusions, but perhaps some healthy illusions will replace them for the final stage. Then Neptune comes.

Omg. Karl was absolutely right about the sell-off Fri. and today.

Folks, this is the government. It is not an "ordinary correction." It is the intentional hiding of losses and the truth from the American people along with investors worldwide.

Unless the government stops this right now we are going to be seeing the DOW at 3,000 before the end of the year.

Thank our President and his administration.

He promised change.

We didn't get it, and the market called his bluff.


Karl is a bit emotional, but it is rather odd that this happened with the economic fixes planned. Uranus in Pisces is doing its final swirl, but when the Full Moon comes to Saturn .... who knows? If some of the old economic decision makers start leaving in awhile the good signs will peek through.

This has both a good and bad side.

The good side is that it is a coiled spring and can produce a hell of a bounce in the market if something is done that imparts confidence.

The bad side is that from severe, deeply oversold conditions you also get crashes. If what little confidence is left disappears for any reason, so will the floor. It could be literally something as simple as one imprudent sentence out of a lawmaker or Administration Official's mouth.

The paradox of this situation is that if a waterfall decline begins there is nothing to stop it.


So the water falls. There could be a rise in the spring, and then there's the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction. This is pretty interesting astrologically.

I have to do some research and give it some thought in terms of retirement and the aging boomers. There's a setup for a very interesting generational thing coming up with Aries-Capricorn. There's been talk of fiddling with SS, so the whole Venus in Cancer issue of security is in the light. This is insecurity in a new expression. We shall see.

Tried to comment, too, chris, and nothing appeared in the verification box.

the intentional hiding of losses and the truth from the American people.

Pretty Piscean and still going on. Tseka's comment on riches makes a lot of sense.

Well, now, that particular egg had a long genesis. I started it well over a year ago, got frustrated with the way it was turning out, and set it aside. Then my health issues started in on me, so I put it all away and didn't feel like doing anything at all. It stayed at the yellow dye stage for a long, long time. Then in January I started feeling the sap rising again and when the time was right, I took it out and decided to just finish it. So I couldn't tell you how long it took.

Interestingly, that other one--the one that broke--had a similar journey. I started it, didn't know what to do with it, and then later tried again and came up with the result.

Kind of like writing a story, I guess. Sometimes authors put the manuscript away for years at a time before the story decides it's time to come out again.

It's always the work that decides, not the artist.

That's it! That's exactly the image I was thinking of but could not quite bring forth.

Interestingly, again, I am reading a book of essays by the late Madeleine L'Engle (author of A Wrinkle In Time)on art and faith. Found it at the thrift store and what caught my eye was the phrase on the back blurb: when the artistic impulse presents itself to the artist, saying, "Here I am. Give me flesh. Give birth to me."

In it, she talks of seeming coincidences that come, layer by layer, to bring an idea to fruition, all in due time.

It's going to work out. I feel good about things and this lunation with the comet has been wonderful. My little car was complaining and suddenly he quieted down. Calm like a purring chesire. That's the real clue. My car knows.

SB, you have the Venus retro in your second and Jupiter coming soon. You'll be fine. I think it's good for us to expand beyond our usual artistic ways.

Thanks chris. That painting is beautiful. The poetry you wrote to go with joe's egg was perfect NN Libra with its blend of word and image from two artists. Thank you for bringing in your new site. You started something. I think you're the real leader among us!

I wanted to get tseka's work over here, but I can't!

you are welcome. i think this is my own way of sweeping up the last crumbs of my SR, and saying farewell to pluto on my ascendant.

i couldn't stop staring at that bloody egg when i saw it, joe!! that blue is piercing.

Really?

Next time you see something that works for you we will figure out a way over.

I agree about the colors, chris. The contrast is beautiful. A lot of clarity in that egg.

The last painting you posted at tseka.com. There's a shaft of light in there that went through me like joe's blue went through chris. And the simple color scheme. Red, black, gray, and the stuff I love.

Well we might as well celebrate with a farewell party to chris's Pluto, the New Moon, and the new comet whizzing by. Celestial happenings trump earthly disasters. Or do they cause them? I get so confused!!

Omg. I just came across something absolutely beautiful in a magazine all about what we're doing now. Life is good. I will show you. Wow. They/we are out there. Or in here. I'm so confused!!!!! It's that Pisces moon.

What a great idea a celebration of the passing off of pluto. My sun, my son's neptune and his Sun (square) my mother's saturn/moon, lot's of celebrating here.

Just saw the comet Lulin. Actually you can see it with the naked eye here in the dark desert. It is not too impressive. A greenish blur. I do not own very good binoculars. Oh my camera...going out again....

I didn't get too excited about the comet. Can't get carried away with everything. I'm trying to calm down.:o) Popular opinion dictates. So you can fill me in.

Well I'm celebrating the departure off my Jupiter, Moon, Venus, and Uranus. Unfortunately, I still have Mars to contend with. THAT farewell party is going to be smashing!!

what size image works best?

Well none of us gets out from under anything for very long! Every reason to celebrate should be grabbed with both hands.

I've always had a thing for comets. Dunno why. Even as a kid would go out looking. Spent many a night watching sputnik and the low orbit satellites, miss those. We slept out on the ground a lot in summer. Auroras are another biggie for me. Maybe the biggest.

Big size.

I love auroras. My favorite thing is shooting stars. I'm easy to please.
