The Hundred Days and the Building Revolution

Donald Trump, President of USA and Statue of Liberty

Surreal” was the Webster’s Dictionary word of 2016. It is defined as “marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream.” They also give as its synonyms unbelievable and fantastic. [1]

President Trump’s 100th day in office is Saturday, April 30. The Inauguration chart Midheaven was aligned with Trump’s natal Pluto, planet most representing over-arching power and control, as in Dictatorship. In these weeks and months, the political events have continued to be beyond belief in the many ways the new administration represents the theme of ‘power my way’.

The Senate is pretending to save the government from its debt ceiling. Yet, the astrological picture today, April 27, 2017, suggests that we all should be suspicious of what is really going on behind the scenes in this surreal act of political theatrics. Venus, ruler of money and values is very slow of motion, about to return into Aries, but now is at 29 degrees Pisces with the fixed star Sheat, known for association with “ship wrecks, storms and drownings.”[2] Venus’ condition which is threatened, weak, and struggling to stay afloat, suggests financial matters are in a dangerous situation that prompts leadership to “take protective action.”

The Sun is now in Taurus, strongly influenced by Venus’ condition, The Sun is with the fixed star, Hamal, in the Ram’s horn. “It gives a tendency to rush idealistically head long into situations being vain glorious, self-promoting and lacking diplomacy.”[3] This star is related to “violent expressions of hatred, intolerance, attempts to exterminate, annihilate unwanted peoples, massacres, fires, plane crashes.”[4]

The Moon is passing through the territory of the fixed star Algol, known as an evil star associated with beheadings, war, mass murder, violence, assassination, mass disasters, fires, plagues, storms, shipwrecks, mob violence, in short, any event in which many die or are killed brutally.”[5]

This is a time when big events are brewing. There is a provocative energy lurking under the Sun’s beams stirring the potential for war. The news that is tweeted from the President has a design to influence public beliefs. The propaganda is intended to generate fear, anger, and reaction. They call it a Tweet Storm.

Mercury, the messenger is about to complete its retrograde phase and is conjoined with revolutionary Uranus. The message is to stir the revolt. Be aware that the message has dual meanings and may have covert intentions for misleading the public in what to believe. Mercury stations direct on May 3rd. This will be a turning point for the political dialogue. Mercury maintains contact to Uranus through May 13 because, at this point in its cycle it has extremely slow motion. This energy gets people excited and builds tension. It’s the energy of demonstrations, strikes, and civil disobedience, requiring greater public protections, like martial law. Something like the 1970’s when Nixon made war on Cambodia, enacting the Draft. The student protests that followed swept the nation resulting in martial law and increased domestic security. Remember Kent State, May 4, 1970.

Fall Eclipses and Local Community 2014

Lava sky light

Lava sky light

The Autumn Equinox and the September 24 New Moon, occur 2 days apart and have similar features. This turning point of the year is a marker of progress. We are in a phase of the year that is bringing conclusions on many situations and issues that have been themes in our lives for the whole of 2014.
On the broad world view of things, 2014 has had an undercurrent of violence and turbulence, which has shown itself in different ways. The Tropical Storm in August was one form locally, while the martial law that happened in Ferguson, Missouri was another and the siege on Gaza another still.

There are brewing plans for more airstrikes in Iraq. The change of season promises more military action and the continuation of the over use of force on the global level.
In Puna, our home on Big Island, events have brought people together as community. We have shared issues to work on that affect people equally. It is a time of problem-solving on safety, transportation issues, geothermal and GMO.

Sometimes we will see the tensions build, but it shows us that there are many facets to consider. The struggle is making the people with the money and influences have to give some sense of compassion and concern for the residents whose lives are affected by their decisions.
October is eclipse season again. Along with that comes another Mercury retrograde phase that will add a pulse of focus around communications, decision-making, debate, and commercial ups and downs. We will need more public meetings with officials. There will be a continuation of discussion topics carried over from September that will make us all wonder how the jobs are going to get done without agreement. At times things will get quite dramatic. It is thematic of the times that more things than we know are decided in secret. The underlying factor is money, profit, and special interests.
The Lunar Eclipse October 8 has high tension, as it hooks right into the dramatic outer planet combination that has been the influence of social uprising over the last two years. The local view of this eclipse may concern local political issues. It may also be the struggle of people trying to get assistance from the natural disaster of both storm and lava. It’s always hard to get the different levels of government agencies work together for the people and their needs. We could see demonstrations in Hilo, if there is no better consideration for the economic struggle in our district, and forthcoming action to support need.
The Solar Eclipse occurs on October 23, as the Sun enters Scorpio. Mercury is direct on October 25, and will complete retracing its path until November 8. This time in between is the phase in which decisions finally come to resolution and then action can take place. So, it is going to be a process. Let us hope it doesn’t take so long that there are more losses and expenses that quicker action could have saved, as we go into our rainy season. Collective voices are gaining strength and volume as more people begin to be involved in community efforts. The high side of this period of early fall is community building.
