The Current 'Illumination' Solar Eclipse with Uranus-Neptune content: Trine vs Hidden Square
by Jude Cowell
Since the influences of the November 3, 2013 Solar Eclipse in Scorpio remain in effect until at least April 2014 along with its Uranus-Neptune trine 'solutions and bright ideas' content, it occurs to me that perhaps more positive solutions may be found and implemented if each of us--We the People--would face a difficult aspect deep within our national psyche so that more activism would spring forth from within the masses!
Forget for a moment the alleged 'good intentions' of politicians. If you agree that we must awaken and become more active on own behalves instead of waiting for someone else to do it, please consider the following information from a previous Page I published on my Jude's Threshold blog concerning the 'hidden square' in America's natal horoscope between the Enlightenment duo, Uranus and Neptune--and their Awakening power:
Horoscope: America July 4, 1776, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, any hour
A “hidden square” is an aspect of 256 degrees, and indeed, if you use the Vedic Astrology system, you know that it considers aspects by Sign…Gemini is square Virgo…therefore planets in these signs are square one another.
Here I shall quote the excellent Robert Pelletier from his “Planets in Aspect”…you may find it sounds exactly like the United States of America and her We the People.
Uranus SQ Neptune:
“This is a group consciousness that is in constant rebellion, but isn’t quite sure of the reason. Although you feel the oppression of ignorance, you will have to do a lot of hard work to make clear exactly what you’re going to do about it. If you are guilty of rejecting your social obligations, you may refuse to demonstrate your opposition to the corrosive effects of political subversion.
Or you may decide that your professional status and personal security are too much to risk for the sake of that faceless crowd of humanity from which you’ve become detached.
If you do decide to participate, it may be through an intermediary because, you say, “I don’t want to become personally involved since I have so much to lose if I’m discovered.”
This is an understandable position, but it is also indefensible. You would be the first to cry out in anger if your own personal freedom were being taken away. In the past, millions refused to ‘rock the boat’ for fear their own security would be jeopardized. How many of them gained the security of a roof over their heads–in prisons, detention camps, and the like?
If freedom is truly important to you, then you must have the courage to fight for it.
Lacking the courage of Uranus, you have consented to live in bondage at the hands of leaders who lust for power and who consider you expendable. On the other hand, you can challenge those who abuse their leadership positions and demand that they be held accountable to everyone for their deeds.
You have the ability to arouse others and stimulate them to action when mere words will not suffice. If you cannot personally supervise the action against oppressive conditions, you can at least support those who will.
Your future objectives are always weakened by a tendency to take a laissez-faire attitude toward the political motivation of existing government officials. You cannot afford to relax to this danger.
This combination occurred between 1952–1956; anyone born during that period of time will have this combination.”
Since societal conditions are more dire by the day while We the People make a huge mistake by sacrificing our freedom for security (which is elusive if it exists at all under a total awareness/total control regime), I hope Mr. Pelletier will pardon my use of his text for I certainly recommend his book very highly to you if you don’t use it already.
I was especially struck by the political references in his interpretation of this aspect and although he’s interpreting a square (90 degrees), you’d have to be politically and astrologically tone deaf not to hear within it America’s current ‘freedom vs security’, ‘isolation/laissez-faire’ issues, and the hold-them-accountable crisis with which we now grapple. The recent transiting midpoint picture of Saturn-Neptune = Pluto tells the tale as described in previous posts and we hear it coming from many quarters: denial of guilt from responsible parties.
Well…some of us grapple, dissent, and complain. But if you can't or won't--as Robert's text says: at least support those who will.
