There are several factors concerning the US's Solar Return Moon 3Sco16 in 4th house of Home; Domestic Scene for the upcoming year--issues of security, resources, and of real estate come to mind.
As the focal point for Chiron-Saturn's opposition...which is still affecting Bush's natal Asc/Desc axis...much pressure may be released through this SR Moon (the public; publicity, therefore, the media which is now under severe threat from the administration, including a "gas chamber" "verdict" against NYT publisher, Bill Keller!), so I'd expect this fake hullabaloo which has been created to mask Bush administration leaks and other above-the-law actions, to continue esp until November elections--the main point, I think, in the short-run.
The harm this will do the nation as Bush attempts to muzzle a free press is incalulable, and my hope is that a majority of people will see through it for the election tactic that it is...plus future muzzling can only help our installed band of bolshevik propagandists continue their coup. Free the Press!
Back to the SR '06: SRs are, as you know, indicative of a person's or entity's will to achieve for the year, the sense of enterprise and independence (!), and shows the potential for advancement. With SR Moon under stress from the Chiron-Saturn opposition (a T-sq, along with Jupiter 8Sco59 Rx), let's look at the Moon's applying aspects:
1. square Asc (3A10)> relationship problems; ability to act decisively is blocked by unconscious habit patterns; (some hope here--the Moon-public having problems with Bush-Asc?);
2. square Chiron (5A07)> crisis over feelings and higher consciousness; potential for the highest level of awareness of human feelings, but so intense, there is difficulty learning from others or from Outside Reality--there are serious perceptual difficulties.
And with Cancer on the 12th house cusp of the Unconscious, this underscores the Security/Home Issues and the difficulty in seeing reality clearly, and there's Cancerian US/Bush natal Sun (in the 12th) behind-the-scenes pulling strings to protect their ill-gotten power. (Mind-control by a master propagandist--Bush with Mercury-Pluto in 1st house of Self!)
3. conjunct Jupiter (5A43-->5 mins, 5 hrs, 5 days, 5 weeks, 5 mos)--this should be a happy influence...but who is this Jupiter? (See previous post.)
Now Moon-Chiron contacts are supposed to connect feelings to the deepest subconscious, and other vehicles for this are the 4th house, Jupiter, and Venus. With Moon IN 4th house along with its applying conjunction to Jupiter (now at his Direct Station) it's my hope that the Moon-populace can "see their way clear" to seeing their way more clearly in the year to come...5 mins would be great--but I'd settle for 5 weeks or 5 mos!)
According to Maritha Pottenger, Moon square Chiron = political activism, and materialism which may clash with the desire for security and safety.
And so, it continues--and continues to be used against us.
But with Moon "4Tau" at Chiron's Discovery degree, perhaps the fanaticism and hubris being directed at the people of America from ALL sides will be aided by a Higher Source of inspiration, hope, and transcendence of mundane considerations. A breakthrough into realism would be a wonderful thing.
Last year, I posted about America being under attack from without and from within. This war slogs on as the SR Moon in Scorpio indicates a new element in the domestic scene or routine resulting from major modifications...some unwanted element may be removed (I know who to nominate for the honor and it isn't the NYT), and there may be a sense of relief accompanying this change.
The domestic scene may have equipment failures from appliances (computers?) to pipelines, plumbing, or water systems, and there's almost sure to be concern over shared resources (from ID theft/hacking, and I place our SS monies in this category. I've paid into the 'fund' for many years--haven't you? Where'd the money go, oh Congress o'mine?)
With Mercury about to station Rx "2Leo": "An epidemic of mumps", I wouldn't be surprised if medical concerns are in the news again (Rx), and you know of the mumps epidemic that's been affecting Iowa and other states and which perhaps will spread...along with other threats from terror-mongerers and deliverers.
The easy course of the SR Sun trining Uranus (1A18), with the only other major aspect a separating trine to Jupiter, Should Bring fruition to America's plans--I just wish America's plans were as honorable as George Bush pretends they are.
Sun/Mars = Mercury: the thinking fighter; desire to bring plans to realization; ready for action; leader of struggle.
Bush is the "leader of a struggle" all right--but of whose?
So I'm wishing a Happy Birthday to America from this dissenting Child of the Revolution...may her flag wave in Freedom, her Press monitor her government in Freedom, and may we all confront our shadows so they can be dispelled. It's the only way to raise up this nation again.
