EYE ON THE WORLD: ASTROLOGY, POLITICS AND BATTLE OF THE TITANS.
Politicians are part of the warrior caste and many of them have signatures in their charts connected to Sun/Rahu or Moon/Rahu which suggest striving for public attention or power. I remember when Trump acknowledged Clinton after the third debate, he said “she was a good fighter.” Warriors have a different role in society to protect the people and yet when Mars or the Sun is afflicted it becomes about personal ego and glory and shaming your enemy. We rarely get statesmen like Kennedys or Churchills any longer who really are visionaries who really care about their world. The shadow government has made sure that they can run and control most of the world and if you take the time to really understand what is happening with the media and in politics, you would be seriously grieving about the decline of the power of the people.
If you do not have political dharma, you should be grateful that you do not have to go into these ugly battles and fights. And yet like the Ancient Romans, we somehow get entertained by watching the battle of the gladiators in the Colosseum. The media, ruled by Mercury, is the greatest enemy of Mars and the political warrior and no wonder there are never any kind words in this area.
It is naive to hope than any politician will seriously impact our lives and want to change the world for the better in Kali Yuga is that is likely to lead to disappointment. We need 435 Elizabeth Warren’s elected in 2018 and they are not without their flaws either. I am not sure what it will take to change political corruption and the fact that politicians all over the world cannot resist the temptation to retire much richer than they started out. Not sure there are enough good politicians in the world or that the population is consciousness enough to elect them if they were to run. It is very sad. .
The amount of energy wasted in political ego fighting and the division that is being created in our country is frightening. Whether we are for something or against it, we lose our peace and equanimity in taking sides and being so attached to our small Martian ego that wants to be right. It is not worth it. Protect your community but it is a David and Goliath battle and it will take a lot to make a change.
I deeply care about our world and yet I have tried to move toward political neutrality because one has to see it as a great game and laugh and be grateful that you do not have that karma. And yet we engage in the media spewing out garbage and we take on pieces of the karma and the media whips us into a frenzy to boost their corporate ratings. Some recent insiders who have left CNN, have blown the whistle on what makes it into the news and it is always about rating. We have lost our Walter Cronkites and Dan Rathers and the last of 60 minute reporters are so old they are barely holding on. The media is no longer about truth. Turn off the TV or get seriously ill picking up the shrapnel of flying words and lies and power plays. It is not worth it.
I am not saying that we should not work hard to create a better society and a better world. The time spent watching the warriors battle it out in the Collesium can be better spent doing community service and helping people on a local level. There is a lot of suffering. Sometimes the ground-swell is enough that the politicians will hear it but recent insider stories say they tune out and even Paul Ryan is not accepting calls or boxes and boxes of petitions and emails delivered. Yes all the bad people should be voted out and if you have the dharma to be a warrior and fight for your society, start running for election on a local level and make a difference. I looked at the 2020 US New Year Chart and it does appear that we will get a compassionate leader elected then but it may come only after massive upheaval. I hope that it goes better.
And probably all your posts on Facebook blasting one side or the other are not going to make a difference in changing someone’s opinion. Our country is pretty much split in half and I am concerned about this summer’s Mars/Ketu conjunction and potential riotting around the world and the US leading to a deeper division and I hope that I am wrong. A
There is so much more going on beneath the surface and their are forces like George Soros who are trying to destroy Europe and the US in the name of liberalism. Take a deeper look. Make a difference in your local city, neighborhood or community. The forces of greed and power have a hidden agenda and so look for the truth behind all of it. It is not what it seems on the surface. The truth is out there but you will to search deeply.
I have stopped wanting to make political predictions because it all seems such a waste of time. We need to do something to create a better world and fight evil and corruption but there are better ways to do so.
Big hugs and watch less CNN and be a volunteer more.
