As Saturn moves into Sagittarius, we’re starting to pick up signals already, as the Pluto in Sag children are beginning to make themselves known. Saira Blair, just 18, Cancer Sun (July 11th) was born with Pluto in Sag at 0 degrees retrograde, which is significant, since Miss Blair was not only recently elected to the West Virginia legislature, making her the youngest elected official in the USA, but also illustrates a return (retrograde) to more conservative values. With her True Node in Libra, she was elected during her nodal return. Balance, justice and equality are the elements that she will aspire towards. However, she will be tested over the course of the next five years as Saturn will oppose her Venus and Mars conjunction in Gemini. Saturn is the old guard in opposition to her Gemini youth. This could be a difficult phase for her as she will feel too old for her peers and too young for her colleagues. Then, when Saturn transits into Capricorn, it will oppose her Sun and Mercury in the sign of the crab. This will be the confrontation of institutional forces, the old guard again, the oligarchy confronting her conservative (Cancerian) values. With Jupiter in Capricorn will she allow herself to be bought and sold or will she buck the system?
Then there’s Jaden and Willow Smith’s now infamous interview where the talk about time travel, slowing down time, the dreariness and drudgery of school. This is what happens when you’re raised by a high priestess of Scientology, and a devoted follower of Pablo Coelho. Their ideas were interpreted by a university professor of philosophy. The results were quite interesting as he related their concepts to ideas by Descartes and Du Bois. While most of the world was scratching their heads, he was able to decode their obtuse abstractions. This will be one of the hallmarks of this generation as they evolve unusual theories and transformational philosophies. These are the kids of the big idea and as Blair has shown, also the big ideal. They’re just getting started.
