DEC 3

THE BOILING FROG

It was early in the year 2001, when an astrological friend from New York wrote to me, asking if I thought the US was heading down the path of civil war. It was in the wake of the controversial 2000 election. An election that was decided by the Supreme Court. And the first in 112 years where the majority vote, albeit by a slim margin, lost.

I based my reply on a traditional timing technique involving sequential Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions. I thought the USA was in for a revolutionary period for at least the next twenty years. The 2000 conjunction had direct connections with those of 1762 (which lead to the formation of the nation) and 1861, when the country was bitterly split, north and south.

I didn’t envision a physical war as much as a deep internal schism, a 20-year political polarity, with the election marking the beginning. Some states could even contemplate leaving the union. My astro-buddy considered that the political divide was dangerously fracturing the social fabric. The threat, at least to him, was from within. But such internal reflection was abruptly interrupted.

INSIDE LOOKING OUT

The events of September 2001 refocused Americans on the enemy without. The common nemesis united the nation behind their leader. Nineteen terrorists changed the world. The president’s depressing polls rapidly reversed. By late 2001 there was little thought of a DisUnited States. Meantime the social division drifted on, silently…stealthily.

Civil liberties were disappearing, virtually unchallenged. Inequality, and cashed up lobby groups, expanded. Wartime privations, such as the surveillance of personal mail, were taken for granted. The very freedoms that the country had stood and fought for, began fading overnight. The individual was becoming dutifully disempowered by central command.

CRUCIAL CROSSROADS

By 2010, Jupiter and Saturn were due to reach their revelatory opposition point. During the preceding year Saturn and Uranus had also formed the first of three oppositions.

At the beginning of a Saturn-Uranus cycle democracy rules. Conjunctions marked the start of the original Athenian democratic revolution, the English Magna Carta and the dissolution of the Soviet Empire. In contrast the opposition phase impedes democracy.

Early 2010, the US Supreme Court decisively changed the electoral process. They introduced unlimited funding, via Superpacs. If you’d ever thought elections were a sellout before that time – now they were legalizing the sale. Their only responsibility was to tell you who was doing the buying. And big business bought in to politics like never before.

The decision was handed down on January 21 2010. Less than a week before, a rather momentous event took place. The longest annular eclipse of the entire 21st century! The astrological implication is the eclipse of leadership. But it was the planetary opposition points that truly depicted this great divide between a system and its people.

By 2015, as Jupiter and Saturn came into square, the two most unpopular candidates in living memory became the electoral choice. One historically linked to the corporate elite and the other a billionaire tycoon who didn’t need Superpacs, but used them anyway. Inequality could hardly be more obvious.

The election delivered an even greater disparity between the people's will and the 'system'. This time by a whopping two and a half million votes. Californians in America's richest and most populous state are examining ways to become a separate republic. Shades of our 2001 exchange. All of this is the accelerant of change.

THE CATALYSTS OF CHANGE

Donald Trump is that catalyst for change, whether you’re enraptured or repelled by the individual. He ignites national anger and frustration. Trump’s horoscope is the perfect transmitter with the receiver being the USA Mars. For first time readers, let me recount the ways.

Trump’s Sun (along with his Uranus and the North Node) are conjunct the USA’s Gemini Mars, his Moon opposes it.

Trump’s candidacy was announced at 11.21 am June 16 2015 in New York, coincident with a New Moon and Mars - all conjunct the USA’s Mars.

Trump accepted the Republican nomination at 10.19 pm July 21 2016, as the Aquarian Moon (conjunct the USA Moon) was precisely squaring Mars.

Trump’s victory was assured at 02.29 hours on November 9 2016 (by taking Wisconsin) as 24 degrees of Gemini rose over Washington – conjunct Trump’s Sun and the USA Mars.

The repetitious Mars connections are undeniable and obviously dangerous - even for Trump. It’s the same US Mars, that was activated by the leaders and major players of the 1861 Civil War.

THE CIVIL WAR

The reasons for the US Civil War revolved around inequality and economics. The south refused to relinquish an exploitative slave system that was their financial lifeblood. The north were industrial capitalists. Resistance proved useless and made change cathartic, rather than natural and progressive.

Abraham Lincoln’s horoscopic connection with the USA was exceptional. His Aquarian Sun and Libran Mars formed a Grand Trine with the USA’s Gemini Mars. His Southern opponent, Jefferson Davis, was a Gemini Sun with a Gemini Mars, with his ruling planet, Mercury, directly on the US Mars.

One of the propellants of the Civil War - true to this Gemini connection - was the most widely read novel of its time. The author, Harriet Beecher Stowe, was born June 14 1811, in Litchfield, Ohio. Her birth Sun was conjunct the US Mars, her Saturn opposing it and her Pluto/Nodes squaring it. Multiple connections are an imperative.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin sold 10,000 copies in its first week of release and 300,000 in the US alone, during its first year of publication. It played a pivotal role in the national narrative that preceded the war.

On June 16 1862, with the transiting Sun and South Node departing from the conjunction to the US Mars, records reveal Abraham Lincoln borrowing a library book. It was Stowe’s factual follow up entitled, ‘The Key To Uncle Tom’s Cabin’. Two days later Lincoln would read the draft of his ‘Emancipation Proclamation’ to his Vice President.

A PART IN THE PLAY

Donald Trump and Harriet Beecher Stowe could hardly be more different. Yet they share a cosmic connection. Their horoscopes weave seamlessly into the USA’s Gemini Mars and their narrative agitates the nation – for better or worse.

Geopolitically, they also identify with the north and the south, which may be pure coincidence. But it defines the areas of greatest political polarity today, just as it did a century and a half ago.

I see both as individual playing a role in the larger collective and accelerating the revolutionary process. The issues are similar in essence, involving an entrenched and outmoded capital system, fast becoming obsolete. One that has outlived its time, in the eyes of the majority.

Typically, before the end of something, we experience what I term the supernova effect. There is a flare up of a dying entity, making it appear bigger and brighter. By that stage it has actually exploded. The central mass which held it together is decaying outward. Eventually new stars are born from the debris. May they shine brighter and better - for everybody’s sake.

THE CYCLE RENEWS

For the astrology student it may pay to note that the 2000 Jupiter Saturn conjunction is repeating a grand cycle connected back to the 1206 conjunction preceding the Magna Carta. Both conjunctions were in late Taurus at 23 and 26 degrees respectively and both squared rebellious Uranus. The whole 794-year sequence has rebooted.

Trump’s role is obvious. He can either dismantle the inequities of the political and capital system currently in operation, or he can try to reinforce it. Only the former will work in the long run. Making America great again has nothing to do with clinging to its past. The South learned that the hard way. Tomorrow is the terminator of the old, unjust and obsolete. A new world awaits, even if it requires a revolution.
