Summary: Saturn-Pluto Mix Scorpionic Themes and the Women of the New Moon
Saturn and Pluto have been active during this Scorpio lunation. Both have forced serious themes dealing with survival, death, destruction and resignation.
These two outer planets are in a 90 degree right angle known for pushing the envelope in economic and structural spheres but...Remember Pluto is the modern ruler of fixed Scorpio
and we are seeing events manifest with many of the typical Scorpionic themes of sex, death and rebirth. Saturn as ruler of cardinal Capricorn makes everything seem a little more serious and important.
When Mercury was void of course in Scorpio on the 14th of November:
Journalist murders in Mexico hit new record
Censorship increases as killings become routine. "I don’t want to die young," says one reporter. Drugs and brutality were touching Saturn, Mercury and Uranus when this story hit the wires (Published: November 14, 2009 09:46 ET).
"Antuna’s brutal murder marks Mexico’s worst year on record for the slaying of its media workers, many who have been killed covering the relentless drug war."
Mercury now in Sagittarius and to trine Mars on November 26th. is helping get the facts out about how journalists can be in danger if they go down the wrong rabbit hole.
Sexy Boost for Women
News is out that Now you can have what she’s having...
Innovative Uranus in Pisces (drug)trine sexty Scorpio Venus- Sun-Moon
Drug tested as new anti-depressant is hailed instead as 'Viagra for women'
Another theme relating to Scorpio is poisoning along with the unscrupulous when it comes to the lights and venus in the 8th as in the bad alchemist.
This consumer report could be interpreted as a dark, cautionary tale.
Tests Reveal Poison in Nearly All Canned Foods
Sounds like the fixed star Alphard - the serpent is a big part of this test.
Now Consumer Reports' latest tests of canned foods, including soups, juice, tuna, and green beans, have found that almost all of the 19 name-brand foods we tested contain some BPA. The canned organic foods we tested did not always have lower BPA levels than nonorganic brands of similar foods analyzed. We even found the chemical in some products in cans that were labeled "BPA-free."
Two Aquarians and Hillary - Women in Power
(Currently Venus is in Scorpio moving toward an exact square to Mars in Leo which is allowing women assume more power.)
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (born Feb. 11, 1964) and daytime talk-show diva Oprah Winfrey (born Jan. 29, 1954) got together to further their careers Monday and vie for the spotlight.
When Sarah met Oprah: Love is in the airwaves
Yes Sarah's PR blitz was timed perfectly and well aligned with Oprah, whose natal Sun-Venus conjunction @ 8 degrees Aquarius is closely squared Uranus @ 8 degrees Scorpio
in Palin's chart making for sensationalism. Also from a strategic and diplomatic point of view, Oprah's Moon @ 4 Sagittarius (Sabian old owl up in the tree) aligned quite easily with Sarah's Pallas-Juno combo in the independent sign of the archer. Pallas-Juno usually combine to further the mental-creative elements in partnerships. Also even better was the love lines of her Sag. Moon trine Palin's Venus in roguish Aries.
Interesting in line with today's new moon where S Node in Cancer plays such a big part bringing the past past karam of nurturing into the show. Oprah's birth N Node is conjunct Chiron the wounded healer @ 23 Capricorn is right on Palin's Vesta - asteroid of dedication and discipline creating a mutal admiration society.
"Okay: The inspiration that you have provided . . . the years where I was a stay-at-home mom, got to watch you more than I watch you now . . . and being quite inspired by some of the challenges you were facing . . . you provide a lot of inspiration and I appreciate what you have done all these years," Palin cooed -- inspirationally.
Of course before this Oprah confabulation filled fans with memories..we had images of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin sitting down in a room together, ostensibly to have coffee, most likely to plot - Holy Shit! Hillary Rodham (born Oct. 26, 1947) has that fiery Mars-Pluto conjunction in Leo trine infused by transiting Mars. Plus those two rulers of Scorpio (Mars-Pluto) are trine Jupiter in leadership oriented Aries - these two women could plot till the day is long with Hillary's innovative but talkative Uranus in Gemini trine Palins stubborn Mars-Saturn duo in Aquarius. Political strategy would even have a home with Palin as Hilary's own Pallas in Aquarius champions both revolutionary and humanitarian causes.
Looking back to when Saturn (structure and ruler of Aquarius and Capricorn) was applying to a square with Pluto in frigid Capricorn.
Giant iceberg spotted off Australia
A giant iceberg the length of seven football pitches has been spotted floating off Australia. With all the quakes in the last two years from New Zealand to the Macquarie Island, one could visualize a monster ice chunk breaking off.
Macquarie Island lies in the southwest corner of the Pacific Ocean, about half-way between New Zealand and Antarctica. 54°37'53"S, 158°52'15"E.
# 2009 07 15 - Off West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand - M 7.8
2008 04 12 - Macquarie Island region - M 7.1
2007 11 10 - North of Macquarie Island - M 6.6
# 2007 10 15 - South Island of New Zealand - M 6.8
# 2007 09 30 - Auckland Islands, New Zealand region - M 6.6
# 2007 09 30 - Auckland Islands, New Zealand region - M 7.4
2007 01 30 - West of Macquarie Island - M 6.9
The ice chunk, measuring some 2,300 feet long with an estimated depth of more than 1,000 feet, caused a stir when it was sighted by experts based on Australia's remote Macquarie Island.
Expect some major geo-cosmic events to unfold as seismic shifts are magnified via Saturn-Pluto.
