ANYTHING FOR THE CAUSE

The sacrifice of young children for a political or religious ideology is normally associated with bloodthirsty terrorists or firebrand clerics. It’s incredible to imagine over a thousand evangelicals in Orlando, Florida, warmly applauding such deadly sentiments. They did on March 8 1983. The speaker may not have realized the inhumane import of his words, but the text went exactly like this.

“A number of years ago, I heard a young father, a very prominent young man in the entertainment world, addressing a tremendous gathering in California. It was during the time of the cold war, and communism and our own way of life were very much on people’s minds. And he was speaking to that subject.”

“Suddenly, though, I heard him saying, ‘I love my little girls more than anything…’ And I said to myself, ‘Oh, no, don’t. You can’t - don’t say that!’ But I had underestimated him. He went on: “I would rather see my little girls die now; still believing in God, than have them grow up under communism and one day die no longer believing in God.”

“There were thousands of young people in that audience. They came to their feet with shouts of joy. They had instantly recognized the profound truth in what he had said, with regard to the physical and the soul and what was truly important.”

The Californian speaker was never revealed, but the man telling the story to an appreciative audience was Ronald Reagan – then US President and zealous anti-communist. Reagan’s ‘profound truth’ was a death before dishonor vow, even for innocent children too young to choose. It was this ideological extremism that received a spontaneous fifteen second round of applause.

He went on, “let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the State, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.” Reagan’s speech went on to become famous worldwide as the ‘evil empire’ speech.

WHERE DID THE EVIL GO?

It would be interesting how Reagan would view today’s big brother mass surveillance society. At the heart of what he was saying was the classic us and them divide – the black hat/white hat syndrome. It was a prelude to a carefully crafted televised address later the same month, unveiling an ambitious Star Wars military initiative. Reagan even used the Hollywood words of evil empire to introduce it.

Reagan's Star Wars proved a much more expensive fantasy than the movie with little return. Nuclear armaments actually increased. Hundreds of billions of tax dollars later it was abandoned. By the time nineteen terrorists with box cutters showed what damage could be done without a bomb, Star Wars had been confined to the dustbin of reality.

But as the President worked the Orlando evangelicals, combative Mars was at 9 degrees of Aries, the sign of war. Militaristic Mars in Aries aligning with remarkably righteous Jupiter and intractable Uranus, would prove prophetic many years later, under another Republican president.

THE AXIS OF EVIL

Fast forward to February 29 2002. The time was 9.15 pm and the then US President began addressing Congress for the annual State of the Union address. This one was not your usual speech. The terrorists may have left the building…but so too had the buildings. Mars was back at 8 degrees of Aries and was squaring Jupiter and semisquare Uranus. The astrological scene was set for some authentic ‘evil’ speak. George W didn’t disappoint.

He began, “As we gather tonight our nation is at war, our economy is in recession and the civilized world faces unprecedented dangers…yet the State of our Union has never been stronger.” This was Bush’s finest hour. Congress rose to applaud for a good thirty seconds. Prominent were the military and Secretary of State – Colin Powell.

As the Congress clock moved to 9.28 pm Bush moved into his real objective. One planned well in advance; the invasion of Iraq. The children got a mention again, “this is a regime that has already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens, leaving the bodies of mother’s huddled over their dead children.” His eyes moved to survey the reaction.

Bush was building the emotional response, “this is a regime that has something to hide from the civilized world.” Bush was making clear distinctions between a civilized and uncivilized world. “States like these, and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world by seeking weapons of mass destruction.” Axis was a key word with obvious WWII overtones.

Bush upped the ante, "I will not wait on events while dangers gather. I will not stand by as peril draws closer and closer. The United States of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons!" A Broadway musical couldn’t have got a bigger standing ovation than Bush got from Congress with this crescendo. Click here for the Axis of Evil chart.

Bush presided over the biggest military budget since Reagan. Unfortunately George W left office with the economy in a much bigger recession, no weapons of mass destruction, a very uncivilized Iraq and America’s international reputation in tatters. Came in wearing the white hat – went out wearing the black one. On the day of his speech the expressive Sun and communicative Mercury were with the planet of heightened imagination and sometimes downright deception – Neptune. It also rules oil.

COMETH THE HOUR

On March 3 2015 Mars will be back in Aries. It will be moving toward the trine to Jupiter and square to Uranus. There is a speech scheduled before Congress – but not one by an American politician. This one will be from an Israel Prime Minister eager to shore up his election prospects. It’s a first. You don’t find Canadian PM’s doing that, or Australian, or Japanese…ad infinitum. So what has all that to do with the business of the American people and why was he invited to address Congress?

The truth is the same astrological players are returning for act three. The last time Netanyahu gave a major speech he was carrying a cartoon of a bomb before a bemused United Nations. Are we about to witness another world divided up into black and white – good and evil – civilized and uncivilized. If so then how come all the ‘civilized guys’ seem to covet the bombs and have so many of them?

Netanyahu will gleefully advise the US on its foreign policy. he always does. It’s one place where he might find a willing ear, providing he leaves 'children' out of the equation. Surely Bibi isn't out to out to shock the world by abandoning his ever expanding illegal settlements and finally offering a plan for a Palestinian state. That's a longshot. The short priced favourite is another ‘Axis of Evil’ speech with Iranian targets and frequent breaks for acquiescent applause.

If we’re lucky there may even be an obligatory tear from the eyes of House Speaker John Boehner. Surely part of his American dream would be to install another Shah and solve the problem. One amenable to the occasional lobbyist donation. With the covert control of Pluto opposing the American Sun - makes you seriously wonder, who's really running the country? Click here for chart.

Cancer or Cancer Rising: Security is a big thing for Cancer. But be reminded that nothing can be taken for granted – including you. That’s why you must re-evaluate your support systems now. You can't be making risky investments, financially or emotionally. There has to be a mutual benefit involved. Add up the pluses and minuses. Look at the cold hard facts.

Leo or Leo Rising: When your ruler, the Sun, and analytical Mercury oppose your sign, it calls for objectivity. Listening to others, along with acknowledging your own inner voice, can deliver answers. Especially where they are connected to your past. You may be going back over matters, particularly where relationships and seeing things from the wider perspective are involved. Communication and reason will trump habitual emotional responses wherever Mercury is involved. Old agreements or understandings could use a review.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: When Mars and Neptune oppose your sign you can feel like Don Quixote fighting with windmills and phantoms.

Libra or Libra Rising: You know deep down that is not so much the vagaries of life, as our reaction to them that counts. Like hitting your funny bone – it hurts so much that it makes you laugh. This can be one of those weeks where you do less hurting and more laughing. The best laid plans of your adversaries – are not working out so well. But it also reminds you that when you're focussing on their negatives, you miss out on the positives life has to offer. Click here and the monthly explains it fuller.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Great art is driven by passion which is why great artists suffer for their work. But the emotional engagement possesses and inspires them. Time stands still and the circumstance of everyday life become irrelevant. That may not help you if the neighbours complain about you practising saxophone solos at 3 am. But it definitely is an advantage if you're serious about getting stuck into something you feel totally passionate about. You'll be glad you did. Some things, and people, are absolutely worth the sacrifice.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Mindful Mercury is moving backward through your sign. It's is the ideal time for planning ventures, gathering facts and information and engaging in a different dialogue.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: Feel like externalising your anger? Are people getting under your skin? Could it be that Mars in Pisces is waving the red flag of frustrations right before your eyes.

It's enough to know that Mars will help you set some things straight, but you don't have to go to war to do it. For more click here for the monthlies.
