August 10, 2011: Eclipses, a Cardinal Cross, and the UK Riots
by Jude Cowell
In 2010, a Solar Eclipse hit the Moon (people) in the UK natal chart and another Solar Eclipse--the 'karmic' eclipse of July 1, 2011, now in force @ 9Can12--hit (eclipsed) the UK's natal Midheaven (Public Status; Goals; Aspirations) while opposing natal Sun (leadership) in Capricorn.
Well, 'looking ahead' back in 2010, I knew that this much eclipse action to one nation's natal chart meant important events, some positive perhaps, but some negative. Yet I didn't stay with my studies of the UK chart long enough to see the violence and turmoil now in progress though astrologers realized years ago that the current Uranus/Pluto square alone would be enough to bring back riots, upheavals, and protests with similar themes from the time of the two intense planets' Great Conjunction/s of the mid-1960s. Civil Rights issues have returned if indeed they ever went away.
As we see over the globe, the Uranus/Pluto square, along with other planets and their aspects involved in the Cardinal Grand Cross of Crisis which hit the world in 2010, are resulting in uprisings, riots, and brutality. Some of the effects may be seen in the *midpoint pictures between the various planets as the elite's disenfranchisement of the masses boils over in rage and fury after the Cameron government's austerity measures were put in place as he entered Number 10 Downing Street.
In the UK "law and order is shattered", says the Washington Post today, and one thinks of the human costs first, then of the use of the word 'shattered' which points to Saturn in balanced Libra opposite rebel Uranus in Mars-ruled Aries, a brittle combination of energies that can do just that--shatter. Then Mars currently in Cancer, sign of the UK's natal Moon, is out-of-bounds, a condition which so often brings fire-setting and violence in its wake through emotional discontent by way of moody Moon-ruled Cancer.
My heart goes out to the good people of Britain, my relatives and friends, and to all who are affected by the current rioting of alienated youth (and whoever is behind this coordinated violence which leads PM David Cameron to say that images from the UK's closed circuit surveillance cameras will be published for he's determined not to "let any phony concerns about human rights get in the way."
Mr. Cameron says that the crisis is "a moral problem as much as a political problem" and I believe he is correct on that score. He attempts to point an authoritarian finger at the rioters' morals rather than at himself and his austerity measures that are causing suffering and a 'backed into a corner' feeling which is a common result of such draconian measures against a populace. Yes, Mars is touchy and OOBs and fighting back.
"It is a complete lack of responsibility in parts of our society, people allowed to feel the world owes them something, that their rights outweigh their responsibilities and their actions do not have consequences. Well, they do have consequences."
Oh, Mr. Cameron! The 'lack of responsibility' you cite also applies to a government letting down its people for the sake of the rich getting richer--who think that their "rights" to more private wealth lifted from the public sector can "outweigh their responsibilities."
Yes, actions do have consequences, and this American with British heritage wishes that you'd cared more about that fact before your 'austerity measure' actions took hope away from the youth of your country--and now your countrymen reap the consequences of the restrictive, Saturnian New World Order agenda you follow, your peoples' wishes and needs be dam*ed.
That riotous upheavals could have easily been predicted (even without Astrology!) implicates PM Cameron as one who knew that violence and societal breakdown was precisely what was being sown by the government's mean-spirited actions. And as I previously wrote concerning current conditions in Britain, another planned casualty of the current street violence may be those "phony concerns about human rights" (mid-1960s!) which Mr. Cameron so cavalierly dismisses as unworthy of consideration--with riots in the streets his alleged justification.
Cameron's "actions have consequences" quote from today's BBC News, an organization towing the NWO line as well so please keep a grain of salt (healthy scepticism) handy when reading.
*A midpoint picture in effect this very day: Mars/Pluto = Uranus: cruelty, violence, brutality; sudden disasters and calamities of great consequence. (Ebertin.) This applies to the entire globe, not just the UK, of course. And if we add Saturn, now slightly out of opposition range with Uranus in Aries ('Utopians'), a Cardinal Grand Cross is formed between Saturn, Uranus, Mars, and Pluto.

The two natal horoscopes I have in my files for the UK are: May 12, 1707 (NS) 00:00 LMT Westminster, England, and January 1, 1801 00:00 am LMT London. I believe the birth data are from historical record.
UPDATE 7:00 pm edt: I am told that this blog's host, Blogger, will be in read-only mode later this evening and all day Thursday. Therefore, SO'W will return with new postings on or by Friday, August 12, 2011. Hope big news events take a break simultaneously--but what are the chances? jc
