Are You "Surviving Progress"? (video) w brief notes on Uranus

Mercurial Thoughts on Uranian Progress

by Jude Cowell

Based on Ronald Wright's 2005 book, A Short History of Progress which includes Sumer, Rome, Easter Island, and the Maya with a theme of 'civilization is a pyramid scheme', here's Part One (14 minutes) of a presentation, Surviving Progress:

Uranus in Myth and Astrology

In Astrology, the concepts of progress, progressivism, and other futuristic ideas belong in the exalted realm of planet Uranus yet isn't it curious that the Enlightenment planet's natural spin in the heavens is backward?

As the higher octave planet of thinking-communicating planet Mercury, Uranus is connected to reasoning ability, intellectualism, and genius. The Greeks considered Ouranos, the sky god, to have no parents--to be born of Chaos, something astrological Uranus seems disruptively capable of creating in our times especially since it now traverses Mars-ruled Aries and is in square aspect with transformative Pluto in Capricorn causing civil unrest and uprisings the world over.

Sighted in 1781 by William Herschel, Uranus, then in Gemini, is what I tend to call America's 'totem planet' since its discovery and principles are forever imprinted upon both the American and the French Revolutions with freedom, independence, liberty, and equality the hallmarks of Uranus' domain.

Of course, crankiness, contrariness, and self-willedness are also typical traits of those possessing a strong Uranian nature. So perhaps you may wish to check out a previous post from 2005 which was inspired by the quirky stubbornness of the neocons, Karl Rove, and the rest of the warmongering Bush-Cheney administration: Chiron-Uranus Types in Government.

And if you, brave reader, have perused very many of the 3,000+ posts published here on SO'W, you're almost certain to have been irked at some point by something this Uranus-in-Gemini typed at you. Yet I guess I'm free to blame most of my own quirky ideas on being born with a Mercury-Mars conjunction in Capricorn inconjunct a 10th house Uranus in Gemini!

Well, wouldn't you?


America's natal Moon (We-the-People in Mundane/Political Astrology) is in Aquarius, the sign traditionally ruled by Saturn and co-ruled by modern-day Uranus. Our natal Moon in Aquarius gives the American people a humanitarian streak (when a natural human tendency toward selfishness and detachment aren't being exploited by partisan politicians), a wealth of ideas, good powers of observation, a love of independence, a sympathetic readiness to help others, and an abundance of hopes and wishes. Therefore, in spite of the fact that it's the 49th anniversary of the JFK assassination, I wish all Americans an abundant and happy Thanksgiving Day 2012!

Yet many Americans are now decimated by the destruction of Hurricane Sandy and are facing a difficult Day of Thanksgiving this year. How better to celebrate our own Thanksgiving Day than to provide what we can for an excellent hands-on organization the Dr. Atlas Foundation of Staten Island? No, Ayn Rand's survival-of-the-fittest Atlas can't shrug with lack of sympathy for our fellow Americans over this one! jc

Plutocrats: Generation of Materialism

Although the Great Conjunction of Neptune and Pluto (oil, gas, water, mining) marks the beginning of the Golden Age of the Robber Baron Class of the 1890s, Pluto and Chiron were hanging out together back in the day when the robber barons, crime barons--the pirate class--cemented and studied cementing their hold on natural resources, political power, and so on.

And the world banking system is implicated, natch. Wall Street gentry, as Eugene Debs termed them so appropriately.

Plus, the Uranus/Chiron (the system busters) midpoint is conjunct this Ascendant 5Leo38, which is less than 2 degrees from GWB's natal Ascendant. And he's a real system-buster and boundary-ignorer, as we've observed.

>>2006 - 1881 = 125, so add 125 degrees to NN 18Sag43, and it's Solar Arc NN conj natal Mercury at the top of the chart. Merc/NN = common or joint plans; meetings; communicating with the public.

So the Merc/NN Sabian Symbol, "19 Ari" is: "The magic carpet"> PANORAMA:

pos: full realization of the broad endowment which every man may make his own;

neg/unconscious/shadow side: detachment from ordinary living and a scorn for its responsibilities.

(And scorn for the ordinary folk who play by the rules, I assume...we're the pigeons and chumps.)

The midpoint between Plu/Chir in late degrees of Taurus is very near the Great Jupiter/Saturn conj of May 28, 2000, and only a whistle away from Fixed Star, Caput Algol...nasty.

Algol's keywords: decapitation; losing one's head; sickness; violence; criminality; murder; horror. (Horary Astrology, Anthony Louis.)

Diana Rosenberg reports that Caput Algol is the fixed star most often active in charts of harmful fires.

Wish I could say more now, esp since I've spread such joy all about...have the Secondary Progr'd Chart, etc, right here, but it is growing late. (In too many ways, my friends.)

And as to the common swill being passed around, we don't have time to be forced back onto belly-button-gazing mode yet again.

Committees proliferate more committees while making certain people look busy--and they help cover shiny patooties the world over...esp in varmint-infested Washington.
