Solutions Abound--on the Local Level

Those looking for centralized solutions to healthcare, jobs and other "macro-problems" will suffer inevitable disappointment. The era in which further centralization provided the "solution" has passed: additional centralization (Medicare for All, No Child Left Behind, federal job training, Universal Basic Income, central banking "free money for financiers", etc.) have all entered Diminishing Returns.
The systemic costs of centralization--corruption, cronyism, soaring prices, declining quality, over-reach, insider rackets, regulatory capture by corporations and oligarchs-- are soaring as the benefits of centralization plummet.
All the sound and fury around a centralized one-size-fits-all "solution" signifies nothing--the solution is decentralized and local, not federal.  March 12

Nothing, absolutely nothing that happens here on earth is unrelated to the stars. Once we are convinced of this, the task is to learn and understand those techniques that reveal the central principle operating behind an event that draws our attention. The author posted his blog just a day before Mercury moved into Aries. A chart for this event drawn for San Francisco (where the author resides) is shown here.  Notice that it has the all important Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square straddling the horizon axis.  At the core of this T is the Uranus-Pluto square — the ongoing and preeminent astrological event of this decade.  We shall see in this post how the author is voicing a solution that is contained symbolically in the Uranus-Pluto square.

 On one hand, the Uranus-Pluto synthesis brings attention to the authoritarian destructive use of power and its ramifications. On the other, it can motivate radical and mind-expanding change in the very foundation of consciousness that breaks us from very deep-seated and long-standing genetic, cultural and social behavioral patterns. The Uranus-Pluto cycle, therefore, charts the progression of radical social movements that involve massive shifts of power from one group to another, or from one manner of collective expression to another. These occur through shocking revolutions or revelations, where a resistant status quo eroded from within is overturned clearing the way through destruction for a new beginning.

The alignment of Uranus in Aries first-quarter square to Pluto in Capricorn opens the door for a possible transfer of power from institutions (Capricorn) to localized units (Aries). This possibility has opened because of a breakdown in our largest institutions (Capricorn) which have  overplayed  their power in ways that are clearly self-serving (Pluto). Uranus challenges or breaks down hardened structures whose vital time has passed. In Aries it draws our attention and efforts to solutions that are unique, decentralized or localized.
