No one can walk backward into the future Joseph Hergesheimer (1880-1954)
When an individual endeavors to lift himself above his fellows, he is dragged down by the mass, either by means of ridicule or of calumny. (Preface to "Don Quixote" Heinrich Hein a German poet of the 1800's)
I cannot think of one person in this administration who should not read these quotes, I can't think of too many in the media who shouldn't avail themselves of the wisdom of these men as well.
It's only Scooter Libby, Gonzales, Rove, Sampson and the top brass at Walter Reed, these are little men playing on the big stage of "Shoot em up" Dick Cheney and George "the decider" Bush but still it's the moment in the play when you feel the bad guys are really going to be stopped and the good guys will start to rise.
At one time I was in the theater (one of my many lives) because of that I have a tendency to view life's drama as a series of screen plays folding one into the other. As with all plays the audience doesn't know what really is going on backstage, they only know what's presented to them. This play seems to be cobbled together and heading into a flop so profound the drama is turning into a comedy, a tragic comedy. The one truly humorous aspect is the actors don't seem to realize that 70 percent of the audience has left and the backstage curtains are tattered and coming down, revealing how tawdry and sloppily this play was put together. The curtains around OZ are falling.
The main actors are the administration, Congress, the media, the military. There are of course some bit players such as Gonzales EX assistant Sampson, Karl Rove, Scooter, Fox News of course and their stable of comedians (black comedy) you can fill in the other bit players in this program. The important thing is they all seem to be sleeping with each other for one and for another thing they spin, and hustle and lie to each other. They aren't lying to at least 70 percent of us anymore because we don't believe them. So the play has evolved to a situation where they are just acting for themselves, most of the audience has gone home. The funny part is they don't seem to know or realize that, must be too blinded by the stage lights and their illusion of their own star status.
As a side comment, has anyone noticed how many of the players in the most recent drama of the 7 prosecutors being replaced by several look a like Rove. A friend of mine asked if they were growing Rove's in pods now. It does look as if they might be growing pods of Roves. Well that's just a circus going on in the corner of the stage and doesn't have much to do with the situation, except the psychology of why he's attracted to himself.
Someone asked about Scooter Libby. I want to be able to say he will go to prison, and he might, but I don't think for the Plame case, the energy for that isn't here right now, the astrological aspects aren't strong enough right now and won't be for several years. There is one little aspect (transiting Saturn conj. 12th house progressed Uranus) happening in the fall that could send him to jail but it's a weak aspect, not impossible, but it is weak. The one hope would be the sentencing judge. Judge Walton might be anxious not to seem controlled by the Bush White House and politicians, particularly after this mess with the prosecutors. Libby does have a move in his future, maybe it could be prison, he could also move to Dubai with Halliburton.
Racing on to Rove (ENTER stage left) and his potential dust up with Congress (ENTER stage right) Chuck Schumer held a riveting press conference today where he accused Karl Rove of "false, false, false statements." Wow, what a shock for the remaining 29/30 percent (well 20 percent are asleep so it's only 10 percent still watching the play) Where did Karl stumble leaving him unable to provide a significant contribution to the audience on stage where he can only operate from the wings?
Karl and Scooter’s present day problems began with the Plame outing, and their fate was sealed the day the investigation formally began on September 29, 2003 at 8:30 pm (announcement) Washington, DC and Saturn was at 12 degrees Cancer ruling the chart’s mid-heaven at 26 Capricorn. Whoops, Saturn transits and progressions unfold so slowly, and that Saturn was conjunct GWB’s Sun, Karl’s Moon (opposing his Venus) and square Scooter’s Neptune (where his progressed Venus was making a visit) and that Saturn transit was oppose the 2005 Inaugural Venus in the 9th house promising court proceedings related to their 2003 slip of the tongue and their lies to cover it all up. The culmination of which is this week with the Plame proceedings in Congress as the progressed 2005 Inaugural chart has the mid-heaven and Chiron in an exact square to the Inaugural North Node. Oh what tangled webs and their troubles aren’t over yet. This entire situation with the Iraq War (of which the Plame investigation is a part) is coming unraveled, along with the attending lies and it will also lead eventually to the truth of 9/11. There is indeed “a walk backward into the future” for this administration only it won’t be their envisioned future, it will be something else TBD. The thing is Valerie Plame Wilson born April 19, 1963 in Anchorage, Alaska has a 29 degree Aries Sun, Pluto is trine that Sun right now, and the force is with Valerie as is the key to the secrets of this administration and this war.
In the meantime this play can be watched and enjoyed. The “shadow” we’ve been watching the last two hundred and thirty one years on this stage is shifting, there is a new player and they are just entering the into wings of the theater. Too foggy to make out as yet but our attention will be diverted from lies and greed toward integrity and sharing and the old and rotting are being spirited to another time and place.
It will take a few more years for all this to be unearthed; however the die has been cast for the wounding to this presidency and his legacy. All they think they accomplished in their first four years has begun unraveling and will continue to unravel over the next eight to twelve years. This isn’t just for the US, it is world wide. I do expect more world wide restrictions in the short term and some serious financial issues, but the long term is extremely promising. Soon someone will figure out that fighting a war is more expensive than supporting the people.
There are 6.6 billion people on the face of the planet today, and so far the Iraq war has cost this country 5.5 hundred billion with the price tag expected to reach 1 trillion, well you do the math. Divide just today’s figures of 6.6 billion people into 5.5 billion of the Iraqi war and think how much each man woman and child in the world would receive if that was evenly distributed, even partially distributed. This “war” thing is insanity and it’s insanity for people to allow it to continue. We’ve been “punked” people, “scammed,” “had,” “taken advantage of.” Write your Congressman and the presidential candidates and quote Joe Biden “Mr. President you are driving us over a cliff, STOP.”
I have always said that Karl Rove was not a first rate political strategist, he is a first rate bully as have been nearly every Bush appointee, and the thing bullies fear the most is for someone to call their bluff; the Democrats and Henry Waxman (as well as a few others) is doing just that.
In astrology there are units of time along the circle continuum, 30 years, 60years 84 and so on; time is not linear it’s cyclical, like a Merry Go Round. Remember when you first watched a Merry Go Round? The lights were bright, the animals seemed magical and you went back and back and back. Eventually the lights just seemed garish, the music was the same, the animals kind of dull and always the same, the paint chipping, and you started looking for another and new brightly lit and exciting ride. So it is with this particular play. The TV faces are the same, saying the same things over and over. Patrick Buchanan’s face and voice is everywhere, there are the same politicians, the same pundits, the same conversations, the same threats, and the same fake “God Bless America,” it’s getting dull.
Two hundred and thirty one years ago the forefathers had a dream of a Republic, a Democracy, a different model of government. As we find out, that dream was an illusion but still it was a dream. Yes, we have been overrun with corruption and reptilian brains wallowing around in their own excrement and vomit, sadly they pulled too many of our fellow earth travelers down there with them. Still, every creation and manifestation begins with a dream.
All over this country, indeed all over the world people have followed that dream of a true democracy where all have a chance and live in freedom. People have worked for that dream, died for it, waded in blood for it, tilled the earth, stole away on boats, trains, planes just to get to this dream they thought we possessed, heck in our arrogance we thought we possessed it too. People that the privileged, or those who believed themselves to be privileged, treated like trash such as Native American Indians, African/Americans, Chinese, Japanese, Arabs, Vietnamese, women, all they deemed to be beneath them, lived, worked and died to keep this dream, this illusion alive.
Most honest historians of the American form of government will tell us, and we can see it was true, that this country was never really justice and freedom for all. It was never for the people, it was the elite class finding new land and a new way to control and enslave more people for more money, more resources, more and more. Still it was the “dream” that kept this country going.
This latest gang of thieves, while they’ve destroyed everything they’ve touched, will not destroy the dream shared by people the world over. We will manifest a true Republic and true Democracy because we’ve been working collectively on it for over two hundred years. We will rise from the vomit and excrement the elite have spread on the path, because “a dream” is where creation and manifestation begins and too much honest collective energy has gone into this one for it to fail because of some B grade actors strutting with their phony pretensions across the stage. For them this play will end with “EXIT LEFT, EXIT RIGHT, PULL THE CURTAINS, DOUSE THE LIGHTS,” and a new play will begin.
