Peace Aspects for the week beginning 1 August 2010

from my blog today

The dramatic event of last week fell between the Jupiter in Aries (the individual, Julian Assange, WikiLeaks) square (versus) Pluto ( the Institution: United States, Defence) with Pluto also representing
the uncovering of information, and Saturn opposite Uranus 5 (The
dismantling of institutions). Saturn opposite Uranus 1 physically
removed the administration of George W. Bush in the vote to install
President Obama, while its 5th and final pass destroyed further
the reputation of the Bush administration. The parallel regime of Blair
was also suffering damage to its reputation with the appearance at the
Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq war of Hans Blix and John Prescott,
neither of whom was complimentary about Tony Blair’s involvement.
Saturn opposite Uranus 3 saw healthcare as its theme and our N.H.S. is
now seriously at risk, in a way that was unexpected. Contender for the
Labour leadership Andy Burnham has said that the Coalition are taking a
reckless gamble [Jupiter conjunct Uranus – my words] which could spell
the end of the N.H.S. as we know it. Saturn opposite Uranus 4 saw the
Greek finances on the brink, and that particular cycle has seen some
restoration (Guardian last Monday: “In an interview at the weekend, the
Greek finance minister, George Papaconstantinou, said that the nation
had begun to turn the corner”). So some Institutions were dismantled,
some reconstructed, some destroyed. I am archiving the story of Saturn
opposite Uranus. The customer service bell rang loudly in my hallway
this week with a punter demanding to know why their week had not
been transformational (so far – there was one day to go). The truth is,
there are many meanings to the word transformational, and many
transformations take place on the psychological level, and I do know
some people who have experienced that this week. And you can’t have
your money back on this occasion! We are still in the Pluto-Jupiter
square, for with both planets retrograding (at different rates) they
conjoin again on Tuesday (3rd). There is an ongoing war of
words now between Julian Assange of WikiLeaks and the U.S. government,
and the consequences are starting to unravel (Observer, today:
“WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange [no birthdata, my words] has hit out
at the U.S. military, saying that they bear the ultimate responsibility
for any deaths of Afghan informers in the wake of the publication by his
organization of 75,000 leaked files of American army secrets”). In
your life, did you pit yourself against an Institution this week? Was
deeply hidden information uncovered? Did you have to let go of a
structure in your life? Whatever was begun at the beginning of last
week (and I know of many cases of deep psychological healing)
re-intensifies on Tuesday, along the lines of the Jupiter-Pluto square
(as distinct from the Saturn-Uranus opposition material which is now
completing). On Wednesday (4th) Mars first opposes Jupiter
and then squares Pluto. Ariens and Warriors could feel beleaguered by
this. They may start out with high hopes of defeating the enemy, and
then realize they are fighting themselves. If two Ariens or Warriors
are both having this experience, then there could be real
confrontations, inside and out. Venusians stand back…! Maybe the era
of the Way of the Peaceful Warrior is at hand. Let those who wish to
fight, fight amongst themselves, on this day at least. It is not a day
for the Negotiators and Peacemakers. The most commonly heard phrase of
the day will be “Aargh!” as people are hoisted by their own petards.
Let all the fighting die down centre stage, and enter the Peacemakers
and Negotiators and Diplomats stage right (or left, it doesn’t matter)
on Saturday 7th. For Venus enters Libra that day, having done her
homework and taken notes at the end of Virgo while all the aggro was
taking place. If you are a sincere seeker of Peace and promoter of
Peace, do your work now. The warmongerers had their turn in the middle
of the week. Show them that your way is the best way…Hoist your Mahatma
Gandhi banner, but get your pitch in early and set the tone, because
later that day there will be a twist, as Venus opposes Uranus, e.g. the
Warriors may not have completely left the building. But it will be a
good chance to use your Intuition for Peace (that would make a good
website) and invent something new for the cause. Activism may join with
Peacemaking that day. And I don’t want to leave this blog without
mentioning Pakistan. It was hit four ways this week: Criticized by
Cameron, widespread flooding, its worst ever air crash, and not doing so
well in cricket. The chart for transits to the Republic (1956) does
not show up any dramas, but the chart for the original founding in 1947
(perhaps its soul) shows Saturn and Uranus both squaring the natal Mars
(danger) by transit. This T-square would be putting a great strain on
the vitality and fighting spirit of the country and also its resources
(Mars in 2nd House) while Pluto also still opposes the Mars.
Benazir Bhutto was assassinated 3 years ago, and her Sun was conjunct
Pakistan’s Mars, which is why she had such a magnetic bond with the
country. At her assassination, Pluto was exactly opposite the Pakistan
Mars and her Sun. War and Peace, Violence and Non-Violence…the struggle
goes on. The networking website iPeace is still struggling to survive,
despite its passionate hope 2 years ago when it began to be a voice for
those who wish for peace and are committed to peace. If that flame is
alive in you, I suggest a visit there to see what you can do.
