EYE ON THE WORLD: ASTROLOGY, POLITICS AND BATTLE OF THE TITANS.
Its an election year and if you have watched me over the years, I steer away from politics these days to keep my sanity. 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. Rahu quests for power and fame and attention and public recognition and by nature his moral integrity is always in question. If you wonder why politicians around the world cannot keep their hand out of the cookie jar, its just their nature and the nature of Rahu. Its not just in the US but is so rampart in most of the major world countries of the world. Inevitably eclipses come and the truth comes out and scandal follows. We are in eclipse season with the June 20-1st solar eclipse happening in Gemini and expect new levels of scandal to be unfolded as the eclipses unveil that which is normally hidden from view.
Politicians are part of the warrior caste. 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 Kennedy or Churchill 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. The US is in a Rahu period and our President has a major Rahu/Sun signature in the 10th house of Taurus. Even strong Presidents like Kennedy had Rahu in Virgo in the D9 ascendant chart giving him strong soul level charimsa but at least it was very strong in Virgo and had more integrity. Joe Biden (Nov. 20, 1942, 8:30 am, Scranton, PA) has Rahu in Libra in the 1st house of D10 for career so those Rahu signatures always turn up with politicians.
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. Do whatever it takes to take down the man in power. The king must fall. Its part of the archetype.
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. So much hope springs on election day but it quickly ends. 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. Yet we all get sucked into thinking that if we get this party in Congress or this candidate, the world will change in a good way.
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. Is it 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. Last year, insiders who have left CNN, have blown the whistle on the fact that they have moved to ratings over truth. 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 sick 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 Coliseum 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 we think the politicians will hear us but like Rahu, they lie and falsely promise and most of them only care about the corporate forces that donate big money to their coffers.
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. I do not like Biden’s chances as he is entering the end of a dasha this summer, Jupiter/Rahu and Jupiter is very strong in his chart in the 9th house of Cancer but Jupiter and Rahu are in a 2/12 relationship and that is not good for health at the end of dasha and his Saturn period starting Sept. 2022 in the 7th house giving a maraka signature for health issues and eventually death. I have not looked at the election closely but I am skeptical that he will make it past nomination.
I have stopped reading most of the political bickering posts. It is exhausting. 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 the media is whipping up a frenzy of hate. I am hopeful with Jupiter and Pluto back in Sagittarius going into Nov. /December but the deep state is enormous and they will continue exerting their power no matter what.
There is so much more going on beneath the surface and their are forces at work 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.
