How descriptive of powerful, destructuring Pluto moving through form-building, Saturn-ruled Capricorn is that?
Here's a clip from CNN's report on last night's stand-off between police and Occupiers in MacPherson Park, DC:
Read Occupy DC's statement concerning the wooden shelter and police actions.
Monday December 5, 2011
Today, as Occupiers zero in on Washington DC--where 'The People's House', the White House (actually a Masonic White Lodge but who's quibbling?)--is located, Sun is in questing Sagittarius, and Moon is in Aries, a position I've referred to on this blog as the "I AM The People" Moon placement because revolutionary leader *Robespierre tended to pontificate such malarkey about himself and his Aries Moon as part of a justification for imprisoning and guillotining The People of France during The Reign of Terror (1790s.)
However! When you have thousands of Americans on behalf of the 99% of us petitioning what was once our government as Occupiers now do, it's okay by me to say, "I AM The People" when the Occupying Moon is in Mars-ruled Aries!
Sun Sag-Moon Aries is a volatile and dramatic Fire-Fire blend giving today's energies a boost of passion through expression of deeply held beliefs. The combo may show such an abundance of enthusiasm that others may be disregarded or scattered in the process.
As you know, Sagittarius is ruled by expansive Jupiter so there's a me-only Sun/Jupiter link which on its highest level works on behalf of The Collective and can easily see the broader picture. Meanwhile, Moon in me-first Aries may narrow the view of the many to a level of self-interest. Yet this also is okay by me since our politicians haven't been serving We The People for decades but have kowtowed and sold us out to so-called 'special interests' which, really, aren't so much special as extremely selfish and exclusive.
And so We The People stand up for ourselves at last!
Sun Sag/Moon Aries adds an undertone of impatience to today's events in the US and in top regions in the news today such as Russia and Europe. Impatience may be shown on the protesters' side and/or on the police's side (which includes the politicians' side, if you can figure out where that currently shifts--with the 1%, it seems.)
Yes, stand-offs tend to occur as immutable forces are demonstrated cantankerously on all sides of the issues and with Jupiter (growth; abundance) in stand-off (opposition) with contracting, restrictive Saturn these days, we feel the non-compromising energy all around and within us. Nations and leaders are no exceptions.
So today with Sun in Sag/Moon in Aries, we may expect subjective intuition to replace objective reasoning--on all sides. This blend prefers that the world come to it rather than the other way around. Well, various Occupier organizations are coming to DC! And Germany's Angela Merkel and France's Nicholas Sarkozy (aka, 'Merkozy') will attend the EU Summit in bossy Brussels this Friday--two Mohammeds come to The Mountain!
(See EU birth data, below.)
Perhaps you'll agree that the blend's 'Images for Integration' describe events today in the US and in foreign lands as well...see what you think:
Sun Sag-Moon Aries: "A mature student discovers her convictions and debating talents through confronting the corruption of academia...He who would be King postpones the coronation for a trek through the Himalayas."
(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
If you have massive education loans outstanding, you recognize the first Image all too well. And if you live in the EU, good luck. Seriously. The EU natal chart's Partnership angle (Desc) in late Pisces has disruptive anarchist Uranus (in Aries = 'Utopians', says Ebertin) sitting upon it meaning that, while unions don't have to break up under this transit, they are certain to change, perhaps beyond recognition before the piper is finally paid.
Here are two famous quotes from people who share today's Sun Sag/Moon Aries blend which you may find of interest:
"Always do right; this will gratify some people and astonish the rest." --Mark Twain
"Well, if I called the wrong number why did you answer the phone?" --James Thurber
*Maximilian Robespierre: May 6, 1758 (NS) 2:00 am LMT Arras, France; Rodden Rating AA; Sun 15Tau24, Moon 27Ari51, Mercury 5Gem15 and out-of-bounds (half crazy!); vengeful Venus is in early Aries; Mars and Neptune are conjunct in egoistic Leo; Jupiter and Pluto conjoin in Sagittarius and are both Rx; Saturn and Uranus are 20 degrees apart in mystical Pisces; closest applying aspect to natal Sun in beastly Taurus is a square from testy Mars indicating a risk-taker and a bully.
European Union: January 1, 1958 12:00 am CET Brussels Belgium (historical record); the EU is a speculator-grand scheme kind of entity for bubbly Jupiter and Neptune conjoin. And with transiting Uranus in Aries on its natal Descendant, the Utopians are in the union.
Note: the suspension of Republican candidate Herman Cain's campaign over the weekend has resulted in a rise in Newt Gingrich's favorability rating, and in a brief Poem for Herman Cain being perpetrated by yours truly...
