Colin Kaepernick has been abstaining from standing for the national anthem. Self-styled patriots have been losing their minds over it. That is because they are true believers in a cult. The cult is the State.
All states are cults: religions. And like all religions, states have sacraments, including holy rituals. The national anthem is one of the holy ritual sacraments of the cult of the American State. Those fully initiated and indoctrinated in that cult have been programmed to go into attack mode when divergent cult members (heretics) fail to observe such sacraments, like the national anthem or the pledge of allegiance to the holy pole cloth. Such peer pressure is how cults maintain their numbers. http://theantimedia.org/read-article-voting/
The blogsite Anti-Media published the article on October 11 from Chula Vista, CA. A chart for the September 16 Full Moon at Chula Vista is shown here. Our attention is drawn to two important points. First that the eclipse Sun [24vi19] is in an area influenced by the stars Benatnasch of the Great Bear (Ursa Major) and Zavijava of Virgo about which Nick Fiorenza writes:
Benatnasch is of the old totalitarian governing stream of consciousness and Zavijava is of naïve followers of this stream of consciousness. Although a star of Virgo, Zavijava lies outside the realm of Virgo proper, before the head of the Virgin. It does not offer the clarity and purity of awareness common to the rest of the Virgo stars. Zavijava is of a passive and submissive character, articulating the blind and naïve followers of the Benatnasch directive--those who are swayed by the diversionary dramatics of their manipulative leaders and believe in the miss-information they are being fed.
The second point to note in the eclipse chart is the Mercury-Saturn-Neptune T-square aligned with the meridian. Let us recall that when an eclipse chart or for that matter mundane chart aligns a configuration with the meridian or the horizon, the meaning of that combination has a special significance for that place. Here since Neptune conjoins the S.Node, people are being asked to check where in the past they have been weak and gullible and perhaps giving their power away to others. Saturn at the apex of the T, conjunct the star Antares, is offering the right way out.
Antares is about challenging the established opposing politics . This is especially in regard to taking a stand against the established conditions of our personal lives and against the established order or authority directing our lives when those conditions or that authority are no longer in our best interest nor supporting our evolutionary freedom and fulfillment.
Colin Rand Kaepernick (born November 3, 1987) is an American football quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League (NFL). His progressed Sun is currently at 10 Sag. conjunct apex Saturn in the eclipse T-square thus making him the hero who has the courage to stand up for his convictions.
