As a symbol of our times Fukushima represents the most harshly polished and truthful mirror in which is reflected both our species deepest and most damaging folly, greed and blindness, and, the most powerful incentive and opportunity to change our relationship with Power, with Nature and with each other – as this Solstice approaches, with all its portents as a turning point, the pressure is on to make our choices……decisive as they may now be, not much farther down this road, decision becomes a choice that is not only decided for us, but, recedes from human grasp. Dramatic words, yes, but, why hide the truth when its staring you in the face…….
……the astrology offers no less a mirror for those choices with big pressure on Fukushima Daichi starchart as the Sun enters tropical Cancer. This nuclear disaster is Global and, despite the continued media blackout on the extent and truth of its impact, astrological transits to the chart for the event carry a portentious burden and reflect far reaching consequences if they remain unheeded. This Solstice sees a building set of astrological pressure points bringing a potential for release : transiting Mars conjuncting natal Saturn opp transiting Uranus + Moon, transiting Venus square Ascendant & transiting Mercury retro on natal South Node in the Fukushima chart…..
Within the general view for the solstice chart the pressure remains……
…..the ongoing T-square between Uranus, Mars and Pluto is at a tangible level of manifestation with transiting Moon coming into play joining unpredictable outsider Uranus as it approaches last quarter in Aries, and, some of the as yet unexpressed energy from the March manifestation of the T could come out at this point.
Yes, it is always a speculative business making astro predictions, but, what is in this mirror? Does this look like structural collapse, of the cooling pools, the melt through of the three cores from sub-mantle to mantle and karmic tipping point, and if so, we must ask, have we reached the SHTF moment of no return? There is a seismic quality to that potential energy as well……
The actuality of Fukushima on the ground may be unknown, in its fullest extent, and, accordingly, with Uranus in Aries being triggered anything could happen – whatever transpires, there is a call here to keep the people of Japan, the Pacific Coasts and the islands in prayer….in fact, prayers for all our futures…..transversly, this could also be the decisive moment for putting the direction of the People and our planet on a new course.
That course would have to be distinct from the failed paths of the politicians, the oligarchy and plutocrats, seperate from the psychopathy of leaders who no longer represent the people who elected them and upon whose backs they have built their empires, seperate from the corporate empires that now seek to control the controllers – and yes, it hardly needs to be asked, but, why?
Because, even now, in the face of such chaotic disfunction they continue to build their empires. The fact that they do so at a time such as ours shouts out the truth…..the fact that if the same energy being put into agendas of conflict, aggression, manipulation and degradation were put into healing and building a better world we know how positively revolutionary its impact would be…….the fact that Fukushima is undeniable and demands total commitment and yet is met with denial and refusal to take responsibility shouts it in our faces…….we know we are better than this, and it is getting very late in the day….Time Come.
….the stars are also saying, those who fail to match up to our collective needs and the demands of our times must go, must lose their positions of power…….they are holding us in a past that is no longer tenable and has all but seperated us from our better nature. Indigenous traditions tell us we have been through this collective meltdown scenario six times before. How many times must we fail before we learn……traditions also say that there will be no other chances after this one……but, we don’t need stars or traditions to tell us that.
…Mercury transiting retrograde over the Fukushima South Node at Solstice makes this a personal time to enter a sacred contract with the past, specifically the past that Fukushima mirrors back to us. This means acknowledging hard truths that we may not feel personally responsible for, but, which affect us with absolute inevitability. It is time to acknowledge that the past that is attached to the event carries forward the intents and consequences of the nuclear culture and its advocates, which must include all who collude to continue covering up the truth about its impact, its main benefactors, its ruthless and mindless greed. The destruction wrought upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki is a hungry ghost with a global appetite. It speaks through the mouths of those now disinforming about Fukushima, contributing to the perpetuation of the most dangerous industry and form of energy production, and its ultimate product, nuclear weaponry, ever to exist. Mercury holds our awareness on this past…..for a purpose.
Triggers to a south node signal a time to release energy that clogs the flow, that aggregates a residue of unresolved issues, and that, conversely, can aid us in reaching into new ground, uncharted territories, the places free of karmic disfunction in which our souls can grow. That release of energy can be harnessed too within that sacred contract to carry forward only that from the past which furthers beneficial intent, the empowerment to actualise ‘good medicine’. In accord with the times, this Solstice could also become the turning point in which to pledge to end the war, the carnage, the rape of humanity and the lands, the pollution, the mutilation and the exploitation of Nature, to do so as a defender of all that brings Life and Beauty……can you make such a pledge, the stars ask.
Astrology reflects potential, it is not deterministic, although that potential can affect lives unheeded…….it is what we do with the reflection that makes the difference…….
….may this be a time of Solstice Blessings!
