American Revolution - Chapter Two?
Pluto enters Capricorn January 2008 through 2024. Capricorn rules government, business and authority. The last time Pluto transited Capricorn was 1762 – 1778, which was dominated by the American Revolution and the signing of our Declaration of Independence.
Pluto rules anarchy, transformation, and power. When Pluto entered Capricorn the last time the world experienced the emergence of the middle class fighting for individual rights, which ignited the French and American Revolutions. Pluto before in Capricorn brought the breakdown of the old power structures and created a new consciousness and political ideology called democracy. Will the next cycle of Pluto transiting Capricorn bring the end of our corrupted and greedy government in bed with business and corporate powers and restore our idealism and values made real back in 1776?
In my opinion the middle class has lost its voice in the US government, which originally was formed to protect the rights of all of its citizens and has been sidetracked and taken hostage by corporations and elite ruling interests. Pluto rules the underworld in mythology and therefore secrets and all that is hidden from our consciousness. But when Pluto surfaces from the underworld or when it comes into the consciousness of the individual or of mankind then all that was in the dark comes into the light to be exposed and transformed as will all be revealed soon when George Bush leaves Washington DC. I don't believe that the Bush administration created corruption but I do believe it became drunk with power as no other government since the kings of Europe which caused the American Revolution in the first place. When the current administration leaves office I do predict that many ugly and self-serving secrets will be revealed that could ignite the same anger and passions that founded this once great country. In other words, it may get worse before it gets better.
Many of you have heard about the Mayan Prophecy that the world as we know it will end in the year of 2012. I believe that is part of a new consciousness of international brotherhood which is one of the themes of the emerging Age of Aquarius which we can definitely see unfolding because of the Internet leveling the playing field and the instantaneous connecting of all of us. Uranus is a planet that rules Aquarius and therefore human and individual rights as well as the middle class and democracy. Uranus was discovered in 1781 reflecting a new consciousness of freedom, individualism and democracy that was fought for during the American and then the French Revolution.
Uranus has an 84 year cycle and will enter the sign Aries 2011 - 2019 when the prophecies of the Mayans may be revealed. When Uranus is in Aries it forms stress and challenges to the signs of Cancer (the birth sign of America), Libra, and Capricorn. The last time Uranus transited Aries was 1927 to 1935 when the world experienced a global depression was also when Pluto was in the sign of Cancer which was 1914 to 1939. Pluto was discovered in 1930 during the time when the Atomic Bomb was being secretly developed and the Nazi's and Fascist's were spreading their hate and control throughout Europe.
Aries clashes with Cancer but also Capricorn and Libra. Therefore the period of 1927 through 1935 was when Pluto was in challenging aspect to Uranus and this same dynamic will be happening when Uranus enters Aries again and conflicts with Pluto in Capricorn from 2011 to 2019. Will we have another global depression or the building of the next World War or will it be the rising of the middle class who will fight to take back its principals of democracy. But first many government and corporate laws will have to be rewritten to protect the people and not those in power which may be the period of the next American Revolution that is rumbling underground with discontent of the people and may very well explode when Uranus enters Aries by 2011. Perhaps the Mayan Prophecy is a new world consciousness where all people of all nations come together in unity instead of the past pattern of separation. Global warming and international terrorism have torn the world apart but maybe the silver lining will the the realization that we have to all come together or we all perish which is the gift of the emerging Age of Aquarius and therefore I am optimistic but sad that so many of us will have to suffer more before we collectively wake up and save the world for a new generation.
