How do you balance the scales of justice at a time when Americans are being tasered, tear-gassed, pepper-sprayed, hit with batons, shot with rubber bullets and real bullets, blasted with sound cannons, detained in cages and kennels, sicced by police dogs, arrested and jailed for challenging the government’s excesses, abuses and power-grabs? Politics won’t fix a system that is broken beyond repair. No matter who sits in the White House, the shadow government will continue to call the shots behind the scenes. https://goo.gl/rWptZ9
The news commentary goes on to refer to the acquittal of the Bundy brothers on Thursday, Oct. 27. They had been charged with conspiracy to takeover of a federally owned wildlife sanctuary in Oregon last winter. The surprise acquittals of all seven defendants in Federal District Court were a blow to government prosecutors, who had argued that the Bundys and five of their followers used force and threats of violence to occupy the reserve. But the jury appeared swayed by the defendants’ contention that they were protesting government overreach and posed no threat to the public.
To understand the astrology behind the event, let us go back to the solar eclipse of September 1. At Portland, Oregon, the North Node eclipse was placed in the 3rd house opposite a Neptune-South Node conjunction in the 9th forming a T-square with Saturn conjunct the star Antares. The 9th house rules law courts. And about the star Antares, Nick Fiorenza write that this star is about “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”. By acquitting the Bundy brothers, the jury did just that.
Progressing the eclipse chart to Oct. 27 brings the eclipse with its T-square to the horizon thereby triggering it. The following is an edited summary of Nick Fiorenza’s blog post on the solar eclipse entitled New Directions sums up the energy of this eclipse.
This New Moon eclipse lies in the midst of the stars of Leo and under the auspices of Thuban of Draco and Alioth of the Great Bear. Thuban of Draco refers to tyrannical leaders. Alignments with Alioth teach us that responsible use of free will can alter our destiny. Alioth stimulates the use of personal will and our need to initiate personal action to free ourselves from authoritarian rulers. This area is about the separation between those choosing to fight for a greater evolutionary vision and those wanting to maintain totalitarian control of the Earth.
