Turning and turning in the widening gyre

The falcon cannot hear the falconer

Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.

William Butler Yeats– The Second Coming. (1920)

The past few weeks have reminded me of one my favorite Irish poets, Yeats. I am many of you are experiencing mechanical breakdowns and such. My automobile breaks needed to be replaced this week.  My  astrological computer software had to be reinstalled twice and various other weird things happened like things spilling and flower pots breaking etc. Bank despoits went into a closed account. I am sure you have your own lists of craziness this week.   We are needing to learn to laugh at such things with Saturn/Ketu

When things break, we need to  remember that the material world is impermanent and Ketu is always trying to take away the material and remind us that we are hear to find the Divine.    I luckily can laugh at all of this with Jupiter dispositing Saturn and Ketu but I have to think that one of the negative side  effects of Saturn /Ketu is things falling apart and it remind me of Yeats.  It reminds us not to get too serious about life.  Stuff happens and we have to just roll with it and find our center and move on.   As things heat up this week for the final Saturn/ Ketu battle, I hope that you will turn to spiritual practice to find a new center and ground-yourself and center yourself from an ever-changing world.  I suspect that Jupiter in Sagittarius  starting Nov. 2019 and Saturn in Capricorn starting January 2020 will center the world more but more chaos is likely this year.  Everything is changing and somewhere, God has a plan.

I  do not like to predict challenging events or put attention on them  but Saturn/Ketu can bring out  pessimism and last April when we saw this we had terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka and the Notre Dame fire are the kinds of things that Saturn/Ketu can bring up.  I am afraid more is coming. In 2007 with Saturn/Ketu in Leo (a fire sign) we had massive forest fires in California and in 1871 with Ketu/Saturn in Sagittarius, the great Chicago fire  broke out but it was only 1 of 4 major fires in the Midwest that left many homeless.  There is always a silver lining in tragedy as Siva has to destroy the old in order to eventually create something better.  We have to be open to change and sometimes the old is torn down to resurrect the new.

Saturn can bring out deep democratic uprising of the people, strikes and movement toward social equality.   The continued angry tirades about the need for more socialist policies are Ketu /Saturn at work.   While I agree with Bernie Saunders adopting policies like we see in Scandinavian countries for health care,  you can see the angry  Ketu influence as he raises his voice.   Afflicting Saturn distorts it and there is some absurdity in some of the proposals from a practical economic point of view but they mean well and less money spent on war and the military and put into the US infrastructure would be a good thing.

Saturn/Ketu also marked the top of the stock market in Oct. 2007 and was followed by a secondary high in early 2008 and lower action into 2009. The June high was Saturn/Ketu again and we are coming to the Saturn/Ketu conjunction this week in the mean node system.  We feel that any stock market fall will be minor and temporary here.

There is an old Arab saying, “Pray to Allah and tie your camel.”   We are taken care of but make sure to check for fire hazards, stay on top of vehicle and home inspections and laugh when something breaks.  The world is ever-changing. God has a plan.
