US Senate okays Gaza aggression, Saturn-Uranus opposition in the fray

US Senate Endorses Israel's War on Gaza

By Jeremy R. Hammond

The US Senate on Thursday passed a non-binding resolution promoted by the influential Israeli lobby AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee), effectively endorsing Israel's war on Gaza.

The resolution, entitled "A resolution a resolution expressing solidarity with Israel in Israel's defense against terrorism in the Gaza Strip."


US weaponry is being used by Israel (Goliath) - and I want to know where Hamas is getting its rocketry (David.) Ironic that David and Goliath seem to have have switched sides since the olden days, and I suppose it's Iran providing David his rocks and slingshots.

Well, the aggression of the Saturn-Uranus opposition is really showing itself, isn't it? Saturn-Uranus as a pair represents the Middle East and specifically Palestine and Israel.

Their appr 45-year cycle began with conjunction 3 times in 1988 in the 27 to 30 degree area of Sagittarius where transformative Pluto, god of Hades, has traversed so recently.

So at the risk of boring you, here's the midpoint picture again which Pluto's transit has stimulated so grievously:

Saturn-Uranus = Pluto: acts of violence or brutality; rebellion against one's lot in life; harm through force majeure; tremendous fear of loss; upheaval to protect assets; the desire to overcome a difficult situation through extraordinary effort.

With Pluto now into Capricorn to stay, we might hope things will be resolved (as much as they ever are in that region of old and deep animosities) but then we have World Point 00Cap00 to consider where world events manifest, and the deconstruction of Pluto in Capricorn, ruled by authoritative Saturn. Any contact of Saturn and Pluto seems made for cruelty of various kinds.

'Forgiving the unforgivable' seems very far away as the New Year rolls on, doesn't it? But it's the only way to stop the cycle of violence and revenge in Gaza - and within our own hearts.

As Scriptures say, we should Pray for the peace of Israel. For the sake of the world, let us pray.

Well PLEASE!!! the Senate/House passes an approval of Israel??!! Why am I so surprised? This shouldn't shock me but it does. this is supporting nothing short of genocide at least that is how it appears here. I just don't see how this works-are the Palestinians the only ones asked to forgive the unforgivable? do the Israeli/US government believe that they can go on with impunity? Do they honestly believe that there will never be an upheaval in the ME and new young, educated leaders will emerge?

There are some who may want to keep the ME boiling, simmering on the hob sometimes too.

(Crisis) Crescent Moon phase as emblem on flag, the region is in constnat crisis mode for the most part - Bush-Cheney, other entities like Soviets - just have to stir the stew while the rank and file are crushed for a political ideal.

Guess my flower power generational traits and leanings can't really evaporate, can they clymela? Even at this late date.

Keeping the discord going means never having to examine your own provocations toward The Other and you can stay in the same crisis mode rut while you project your own shadow traits 'out there' just as Bush and the white hats did.

You can't go about killing people's cousins-kith-n-kin and hope to ever live next door in peace. Every person who dies was part of a family and they're even more aware of it than the 'new' West.

With the Crescent phase, we tend to be haunted by ghosts of our pasts and it's difficult to break out of the nostalgia mold and move into the future (Sat-Ura oppo again.)

The old phrase, Cutting off your nose to spite your face, comes to mind.

Ok i'll hush now, C! Suppose i'll be watching the premiere of '24' tonight. You?
