Revelations from Snowden Open Big Can of Worms

It seemed like a good idea...

It seemed like a good idea…

Governments always have secrets. Many things are “classified” for the country’s good. However, since the 1990’s, executive powers have greatly increased and primarily though secret means. Last June 9, 2013, Edward Snowden exposed the massive spying that our government is doing. There are these various agencies of the government that have, until 2001 remained fairly autonomous and it could be argued that a general lack of knowledge about individual agencies was common outside each agency. There was little to no sharing of intelligence with foreign powers. On August 20, 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft issued new procedures for allowing the sharing of intelligence between agencies and with other governments.

The process that is unfolding around NSA, CIA, and FBI and their use of spying, detention, and interrogation is threatening to shake up this administration and the last one. I have been writing for months about the revolutionary energies of current astrological patterns and linking the cycles to history. The revolution that formed this country happened during similar long-term planetary alignments. We are essentially in a process of refocusing our society and our government along similar events of our pre-Constitution years. Spying, kidnapping, and torture were widespread through the Colonies in a civil war.

When Diane Feinstein, Chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence took a stand and challenged the CIA to stop spying on the Committee members and their staff, it brought out in the open the complicity between current administration and the Bush administration and their “reinterpretation of law” to cover their war crimes.

As we go through the month of April 2014, things could get very intense. The Spring Equinox, March 20, already has a tightening arrangement of four planets facing off in a Grand Cross that fits right on the Sun of the USA chart. The Sun is the representative of a nation’s President or Leader. Saturn represents Congress. Sun and Saturn are tightly in a square aspect, so this transit picture is heating up tensions and bringing more secrets to the surface.

There will be a total Lunar eclipse on April 14, and a Solar Annular eclipse on April 28. In addition, the 5th of 7 squares between Uranus (revolution) and Pluto (overarching powers) is exact on April 21. Jupiter opposes Pluto as it conjuncts the USA Sun. This happened previously in early August 2013. At that time Glenn Greenwald testified to the Senate of Brazil about US spying internationally. This further exposed what the government is doing on a global scale. Jupiter reveals the truth while Pluto is the dominating power. In the stages of this cyclic relationship, we are coming to the most important one in April.

While both Mars and Saturn are retrograde, the factors of military or domestic defense and Congressional powers are in disruptive phases. There can be overreactions and a tendency to suppress dissent. With Mars transiting the USA Saturn representing Congress, there is going to be a fight. As the truth is forced into the open, public reactions could range from civil disobedience to major upset in the next elections.

Players at the highest level of government and corporations will not want the truth known. We are going into a time of power struggles and potentially false flag events to justify domestic controls. Former President Bush and his team must be getting very nervous. The both Lunar and Solar eclipses have strong contacts to GB’s natal chart.

President Obama is in the hot seat with transiting Saturn making its way to his Midheaven (the place of reputation) and will be challenging other points in the area of relationships and open enemies. The Solar Eclipse is square to his Sun, which will shake his place in the world. The remainder of his term of Office will be very challenging to him. Even the Inauguration Chart is coming to life in ways we astrologers may not have understood before. Saturn is aspecting Neptune (illusions and secrets) while Mercury has made 3 passes over it. Thus we have the information that has been concealed. I am sure there is more to come. This is a slow process and governments can delay as long as they want.

The Finale of 2013

The final weeks of 2013 will set the stage for much of 2014. It looks a little harsh in terms of the political and economic trends. We are not likely to see Congress striving to do their best for their constituents. They appear to be heading us into a very harsh and for some, desperate winter.

The revelations of the eclipses continue to expose the depth of government’s secrets. The theme of the planets stacked up in Scorpio is all about secrets, espionage and general dark aspects of control and suppression. Mercury, the messenger, is retracing its path in direct motion now, making it seem like the conversation is dominated by NSA and drone strikes. Drones are a good representation of Mercury in Scorpio, as they are stealth, quick and deadly. You don’t see it coming until it’s too late. Mercury will progress into Sagittarius December 6, which will bring more light to what is going on and bringing recall of last July’s major revelations.

Saturn is traveling in the Sun’s beams through the rest of November and will not be visible again until Thanksgiving. When planets are so near the Sun, it symbolizes secret meetings and plans being made. Saturn in Scorpio has given us the harsher side of government. Saturn is the planet of limitations and restrictions. It is giving more power to secret elements of government, rather than correcting the problem of over-extended powers. This is a trend that will continue into late 2015.

Historically, the last two times that Saturn transited Scorpio, 1954 and 1983, there were very dark and deadly events. The US government backed the over throw of the democratic government of Chili, supporting a dictatorship that massacred thousands. In the USA, there were brutal racial attacks. The first Bilderberg Group meeting was held, setting the president for world political and financial leaders to meet in secret and begin manipulating world markets and governments. In 1983, there was Noriega and the Iran-Contra Affair. This period also brought us the Savings and Loan Scandal and the deregulation of banks and financial activities. Saturn in Scorpio does not bring happiness and prosperity to the common people. Rather, it seems to wedge the differences between ‘the haves and have nots’. It gives further militarization to those who control the masses.

Venus, planet of value, resources, money and love, will be spending the next four months in the sign Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. Venus turns retrograde on the Winter Solstice at the last degree of Capricorn. It will then take all of January to retrace its path turning direct January 31. It finally leaves the sign most associated with corporations and big business on March 6. Saturn and Capricorn represent actions like reduction, condensing, and generally “down- sizing.” This holiday time is an opportunity for greater sharing and helping within the community. It’s not likely there will be an increase in jobs or in pay.

Mars has a two year cycle and its retrograde period causes it to spend a full 7 months in one sign. It enters Libra on December 8 and leaves the sign July 27. It turns retrograde March 2 and direct on May 20. While it travels this territory, we can expect turbulence and unrest. Mars is the planet of war, dissension and upheaval. It will be retrograde during the next eclipses, which breeds struggle and opposition. The Winter Solstice chart establishes the beginning of a series of aspects of Mars with Uranus and Pluto. This next year ahead will not be dull and boring. It is clear that the population will be pushing for real changes. It is also clear that there will be a strong force pushing back.
