and major transformations. Today I will focus on one of the most strident which is pushing the very nature of survival and security: the Saturn-Pluto
synodic cycle with Saturday's exact square from Saturn-Libra to Pluto-Capricorn.
Jupiter although fading back in Pisces on September 8th. remains in orb @ 2 Aries
adding more tension to the economic demise worldwide.
More succinctly Saturn-Pluto squares in cardinals signs deal with major shifts of power. (the last one in Sept. 1973 with Saturn in Cancer TSQ Pluto in Libra and N Node in Capricorn). Power taken by force. On 11 September 1973, the government of President Salvador Allende was overthrown by the Chilean military in a coup d’état. General Pinochet assumed power and ended Allende's democratically elected Popular Unity government.
August 21st: All things end and others begin - Applying Saturn Square Pluto @ 2:47 AM
The next phase of the Cardinal Climax kicks into high gear with the Saturn-Pluto Cycle where history is forged. Major social and economic transformations are in set in motion.
Resistance Now is the call against the e powers that be.
This is a time of Territorial disputes, boundaries are enforced, scarcities, and obsessions prevail. safety and security become dominant issues during this transit.
especially with Saturn direct in Libra and Pluto ready to move direct in Cappy. - All about Authorities who limit or control freedom and activities plus they may levy taxes. Survival itself becomes an issue, and many may feel trapped and depressed.
From Merriman: PLUTO IN CAPRICORN:
THE GOOD, THE BAD, EVEN WORSE, AND REDEMPTION
Standing like a huge monolith rising out of the earth in the middle of nowhere, and casting a very long shadow over all the other signatures within the forthcoming “Cardinal Climax,” stands Pluto in Capricorn. This is the initial signature that starts the complex and fascinating cosmic pattern of the “Cardinal Climax,” and it is the last to leave.
Not sure how fascinating this period will be but it sure has its share of disasters...
This article seems to echo the type of collapse that is happening with the Titans Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter all in hard aspect
Pakistan floods: disaster of epic proportions raises the spectre of systemic collapse
Pakistan’s lenders must start considering debt cancellation as a form of assistance because it might be a more effective and sustainable solution.
Looking back on the Aug. 9th Leo New Moon set for Washington, DC @ 11:08 PM EDT
we still had Uranus in Aries near Jupiter adding to this destructive TSQ.
Plus the HELIACAL RISING STAR was Acubens
Acubens, is a double star, on the left arm-socket of the Crab - Cancer .
Per Robson: Acubens has the nature of Saturn and Mercury. It has been called "the sheltering of hiding place," and gives activity, malevolence and poison, making its natives liars and criminals.
Well that sounds familiar with the lies coming from every qtr. whether it be the FDA
BP or Obama. Also when rising, Acubens relates to questions and issues around the sacredness of life and survival. Like the Gulf of Mexico where Gulf fishermen being held responsible for toxic seafood! Note that the S Node in Cancer deals with food, agriculture, sustenance per past issues. Soon Saturn will be TSQ both the S Node in Cancer and N Node in Capricorn - in fact Sept 27th is that day.
Expect the Gulf Seafood issues to enlarge along with other food recalls including eggs.
HELIACAL SETTING STAR was Altair on the Leo New Moon of August 9th for DC
Altair is a pale yellow star in the neck of the constellation Eagle or Aquila.
According to Ptolemy the influence of Aquila is similar to that of Mars and Jupiter. It is said to give great imagination, strong passions, indomitable will, a dominating character, influence over others, clairvoyance, a keen penetrating mind and ability for chemical research.
Altair setting with the Sun relates to bold action and risk taking and also to notoriety, honors along with per Robson: some ill-health and losses, danger of bites from venomous animals.
On Saturday, Aug. 21st when the square perfected, new more restrictive rules for travelers were announced.
New Logan searches blasted as TSA becomes even more invasive.
"Logan airport security just got more up close and personal as federal screeners launched a more aggressive palms-first, slide-down body search technique that has renewed the debate over privacy vs. safety."
Saturn relates to these kind of limitations and security measures while Pluto adds to the
transformation that ensues while Jupiter deals with travel. My guess is that the general public will respond with some resistance than settle in..
Kucinich compares Iraq ‘exit’ to Bush’s ‘Mission Accomplished’
Before we look at Kucinich comments consider this action as another shift of power or
semblance of shift. With Saturn in Libra, diplomacy and negotiation rule while Pluto in Capricorn always means a hidden agenda whether in political or financial realms.
According to a Libra, peace oriented politician (rare indeed) Dennis Kucinich
Orwell in charge? Kucinich compares Iraq ‘exit’ to Bush’s ‘Mission Accomplished’ Dennis blasts the White House obvious spin around Iraq
“Who is in charge of our operations in Iraq , now? George Orwell? A war based on lies continues to be a war based on lies. Today, we have a war that is not a war, with combat troops who are not combat troops. In 2003, President Bush said ‘ Mission Accomplished ‘ . In 2010, the White House says combat operations are over in Iraq , but will leave 50,000 troops, many of whom will inevitably be involved in combat-related activities.
