Scanning Sunday’s headlines for items manifesting as anticipated (revelations of corruption in the system, words spoken that can’t be taken back and more news from underground) and we find the following: a State Dept official resigns under pressure over his brutally candid opinion regarding the treatment of Bradley Manning http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/state-department-spokesman-out-after-comments-on-prisoner/?scp=1&sq=crowley+resigns&st=cse; the hacker group Anonymous is set to release documents alleging fraud on the part of Bank of America http://www.zerohedge.com/article/hacker-collective-anonymous-release-documents-proving-bank-america-committed-fraud-monday; the lost city of Atlantis may have been found http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/13/atlantis-found-lost-city-discovered_n_835088.html
Of course, there is the continuing story of the 9.0 (!!!) quake and tsunami in Japan. Astrologers have been anticipating big changes reflected by the planet Uranus moving into Aries, and big changes we are seeing: as a result of the quake, the Earth’s axis and the coastline of Japan were dramatically altered — just like that: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/14/world/asia/14seismic.html?hp
Earthquakes are often connected to the planet Uranus; radiation is connected to Pluto. You may recall the Jupiter-Pluto square I wrote about on February 25th, suggesting this would be a time when energy resources would be up for evaluation. What do you think? Should we build more nuclear plants or should we explore other sources of energy? “Are US Nuclear Reactors Safe” http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2011/03/13/japans-nuclear-crisis-lessons-for-the-us?hp
Today Moon continues its sojourn through Cancer, a placement that needs to establish emotional and home security. With this in mind, I am thinking it would be nice if certain journalists could kindly delete the words “FEARED” and “FEAR” from their collective vocabulary. Surely there must be a way to communicate news without contributing to collective anxiety. Emotions may well continue to run high this morning; hopefully giving way to a more stable, sober connection between Venus (love, money, art) and Saturn (necessary controls) later this afternoon. This should prove helpful to the people of Japan, as they must adapt to rolling blackouts; a friend who lives outside Tokyo reports the power outages are “paralyzing traffic” as citizens strive to do business as usual with reduced energy consumption; he also writes quite matter-of-factly that this shared sacrifice is necessary, as the burden of the quake’s damage must be carried by all Japanese citizens.
Tuesday we’ve got a break — the first in many days — in the form of a void-of-course Moon from 6:05AM – 3:33PM EDT. If it has to ship, get it off your desk today or tomorrow after the void. East Coasters, you’ve got almost a whole day to chill, float, brainstorm, avoid impulsive shopping sprees, watch as meetings are canceled or people — perhaps even you, flake out. Wait to act on your big, inspired, pioneering ideas when Moon enters regal Leo at 3:33 PM EDT.
In other news, I’m still in Los Angeles — here until the 23rd — with more in-person appointments available, now that I’ve extended my stay. Looking forward to being of service : )
