Home Sweet Home: New Moon in Cancer, Alien Disclosure and the Forthcoming American Revolution
This month, the New Moon occurs in Cancer, the sign of the all-giving Mother. This is an especially nurturing New Moon, overflowing with four planets conjunct including the Moon, Sun, Venus, and the asteroid Ceres -- which represents the urge in us to feel a sense of belonging and fertility in our lives. All week long, we should be feeling extra sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. This should attune us to what provides inner security and soul-nourishment. Now is a great time to decorate your roots by adding creature comforts to your home and extra loving embraces to your friends and family.
If you know your rising sign, you can simply follow the signs around your chart until you find the house occupied by Cancer. This will then specify the area of life which is seeking comfort and needs maternal attention. This house is also an area where we can nurture others. Six months from now, when the Full Moon occupies this same house, we seek fulfillment in that same area.
This new Moon falls within two days of the the Fourth of July, a holiday typically celebrated with friends and family. Cancer always asks us to investigate our familial threads, genetic lineage, ancestral roots, as well as the concept of Home. Since this New Moon falls on many of the USA's personal planets, including the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter, I thought we could discuss what it means for us as a nation to consider our roots and our sense of "security" and Home. In Boulder the other day, I glimpsed a bumper sticker which said "Homeland Security is Renewable Energy." This striking statement emphasized the movements of Jupiter and Pluto thru sustainable Capricorn this year, as well as Saturn's continued venture thru ecological Virgo. The Earth trine relationship between these planets this year heralds a new age of priority -- where efficiency of energy eclipses the archetypical, self-destructive American urge of unchecked expansion.
This question of HOME? will keep arising over the next coming years with various intense reflections, many uncomfortable. As the bubble of the American Dream continues to pop, questions of U.S. American identity will continue to reflect back on the population here, most strikingly represented by this year's elections. On the very day of the elections, an exact Saturn-Uranus opposition takes place. In a nutshell, Saturn is the superegoic status quo, conservative, hard-working, responsible, symbolized by government and banking, while Uranus is the maverick, the rebel, the Promethean urge towards freedom, change, and liberation. I think the candidates pretty obviously symbolize these two planets, but the candidates are more a reflection of the U.S.'s own identity crisis. Caught in its self-obsession, "in-dependence" of consumerism-as-way-of-life, unchecked freedom thru debt, while enslaved to conveniences, where do we go from here? How do we adapt? (For an excellent article on election day astrology, please see Barry Orr's piece on Reality Sandwich.)
Besides this, humanity's Home is continuing to be destroyed. Worldwide catastrophes of unparalleled proportions (70,000 dead in China's recent earthquake) and global warming, as profoundly and eloquently explained in the highly recommended film The 11th Hour, are increasing desperation in the global consciousness. Recently, my sister told me she wanted to experience an Alaskan cruise "before all the glaciers melt," while my father's email summarized a creeping sense of impending helplessness:
"Well the stock market dropped 352 points today. It is such an interesting time for everyone. Food prices, oil prices, 800 fires in CA, floods in the midwest, and life goes on! The air in the Bay Area is so bad due to all the fires, they are recommending staying inside. I want to say more, but I am lost for words..."
When considering "Home," I am reminded of an experience in Calcutta many years ago. I was asked by a fellow volunteer where I was from. For simplicity's sake, I answered "America." The person who asked me was Chilean. He shot me a glaring look and responded with the striking rebuttal, "You know, there's more than one America?" Is ignorance as American as apple pie? If the following information is new to many people, we must ask why we have remained ignorant of it.
How is this possible that we are not all discussing the proposed North American Union, a merger of the United States, Mexico, and Canada into a single unit similar to the E.U., using a singular currency called the Amero. The former presidents of Mexico and Canada, in addition to Mr. Bush agreed to a North American Union a few years ago and rumor has it that the Amero is already under production at the Denver mint. With the falling dollar, this merger may be sold to the U.S. populace as a saving grace to the dissolving economy. But with a North American Union, it will be harder to track people and so surveillance technology, including implantable chips, may be slowly introduced to the populace. Is it really so hard to imagine a severe amount of people willing to chip themselves for 'safety,' given another "terrorist" attack on the "Homeland?" This is not far-fetched, nor far off.
Attempts at a Total Surveillance society will continue to increase during the Pluto in Capricorn tenure thru 2024, but so will the dissolution of the nation-state itself, evidenced by the increasing number of secessionist movements, local economies, and ecovillages erupting in this country. Remembering that the American and French Revolutions occurred during the last journey of Pluto thru Capricorn, we can very acutely paint the picture of a complete birth and death cycle for the United States, a constitution ratified under Pluto in Capricorn in 1776 and a constitution dissolved in its hybridization into the North American Union in the coming decade.
We must ask ourselves, is our Home the borders around our white picket fence, the borders with our neighboring nations, the edges of the Biosphere, this stretch of Galaxy, or the entire multidimensional matrix of Spirit itself? Fundamentally, Home is a question of identity and a function of our will-towards-consciousness. How vast am I willing to divine myself and define my family? It is helpful to remember that not only the Earth, but every other planet in the Solar System is heating up at extreme rates, and if a massive Coronal Ejection (solar flare) is to take place (due for peak output in 2012), then every planet is going to feel the effects.
We are our Father Star as much as our Mother Earth, and beyond and before this, our roots lie in Grandfather Nebula and Grandmother Galactic Center. Dark Matter is the spider-web of the Unconscious which links us eternally to our anceStars. With this holistic, Cancerian awareness of our entire universal family, we may finally be able to peaceably invite to our table our interstellar and intergalactic kindred. We have nothing to fear from our cousins - if their intent was malicious, we would be gone long ago. If their intent is to help us heal our Home, then it is likely that they would seek to provide us with the means to free us from our energy dependence and cataclysmic descent. And this would only threaten one tiny pocket of the population: the wealthiest, most powerful fossil fuel corporations and oil-sponsored governments.
With 30 nations ready to disclose E.T. presence, with UFO files released in the last two years from France, Brazil, and the U.K and millions of these documents downloaded, with Vatican astronomers announcing their acceptance of other intelligences in the universe, with a ballot initiative in Denver this fall to form an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission, there is no doubt a collective preparation and positioning taking place for our long-awaited Encounter at the moment of greatest Human turmoil.
If the energy and oil crisis continue to
escalate, as they appear they will, the disclosure of viable energy
alternatives, whether from E.T. intelligence or not, may in fact be the cause of
the next American Revolution. In the summer of 2010, as Uranus move into Aries,
and begins its intense, decade-long square with Pluto in Capricorn, an
insurrectionist movement of epic proportions is highly likely. We will be using
innovative technology (Uranus) to liberate and re-idenify ourselves (Aries) in
ways unfathomable to most of us now, to completely dissolves the current systems
of dominance, control, and enslavement (Pluto in Capricorn). Let each decision
now pave the way towards an unknown and wholly radical freedom.
