5:15 AM, Saturday morning, and I’m ten miles from the Mexico/Texas border. The palm trees outside my hotel window are damp and sway in the hazy, tropical winds. The sulfuric light and heavy condensation makes them look like strange, sweating, vegetation on a Martian landscape. Just on the other side of the parking lot are acres of budding, GMO laced, stalks of corn. I head downstairs to the hotel’s lobby.
Just after five AM, it’s me, the fish and the talking heads on the big screen. There’s Ben Ferguson, the thirty-four-year-old conservative that makes you want to detest all things conservative. He was the youngest, nationally syndicated talk show host in the US. He’s in his early thirties and vibes like he’s in his early fifties. And there he is, bashing Trump because he dared to speak out about how the game is “rigged” in reference to Trump’s broadsides against the electoral process. Depending upon where you align withTrump he’s been either bitterly complaining about the process like a sore, uninformed loser, or he’s been blowing the lid on how corrupt and conniving the process itself is.
If you are an insider and part of the status quo, Trump’s laments are music to your ears, because the rules were changed to prevent something exactly like this. To prevent an outsider like Trump (even if you don’t think he’s an outsider) from actually doing some damage to the GOP and their inside game—it’s not who we elect—but who they select.
For almost anyone reading this blog, that’s not news. We’ve been sick over rigged elections for years. Whether it’s the faulty two-party-system, or hijacking the national vote via the black box, we know the results are fixed. But what Trump has accomplished has been to point out that even the selection process itself is rigged.
Astrologically, we can see the astral upsetter in Trump’s 10th House, with the Sun/Uranus/TN conjunction in Gemini. Gemini as we all know rules duality and sometimes even duplicity, For the Donald, he is in their world now, and they make up the rules as they go. They are duplicitous. If they want to snatch delegates, they’ll do that in the “name of the party.” And there was young Ben Ferguson, exhorting the conservative mantra; “The rules are the rules and if you don’t know them, tough luck.” What this smug, arrogant, little asshole doesn’t understand is that there is a rising tide, a growing class that doesn’t give a fuck about their rules or their party decorum. From Super Pacs, to Super Delegates, from Florida chads, to Manchurian candidates, people have had enough and little square turds like Ben Ferguson come off like spoiled rich kids who get by on blood and credit lines, parroting the talking points of their Mandarin handlers.
Ferguson and his ilk represent the tyranny of the status quo and they are desperately hanging onto whatever edge they’ve managed to eke out for the last, three centuries.
Whether it’s Trump or any other outsider crashing their party, they will contest their dominant position to the death, because if someone challenges the status quo, on either side, whether it’s Trump or Sanders, their very existence is put to the test. They are at risk for losing it all, because if the status quo falls, they and their programs, platforms and talking points are irrelevant.
The United States is in no mood for the Ben Fergusons of the world and if he was really “down with the people” he’d understand that their wrath and fury is just a few degrees to his right and it’s downright pissed.
Ferguson is that seven-year-old little shit that’s evolved “neener, neener, neener” into a full blown career, stuffed with pious mannerisms and a bankable morality.
Yesterday, both Mars and Pluto went retrograde. I’ve talked about this on my show and with Regina Meredith on Gaia (speaking of Regina, she’ll be in my show this coming Friday 12 Noon, CST).
Both Mars and Pluto are planets of power, raw power. Mars is physical force and Pluto is psychic force. The retreat of both is symbolic and can manifest in a number of ways. From a fundamental sense, the retrograde motion is a retreat, and a potential strategy to reclaim power. From a collective level, the best-case scenario is that Americans grow a pair and understand the nature of power, from the spiritual to the personal. Pluto in Cap of course is the Plutocracy and while Trump has felt the rage of the Left, the Millenials and even the conspirators in his own party, he is not the Plutocracy. Trump hasn’t ascended that high yet.
The Plutocracy is the system that’s changing the rules on the fly, just likereality that changes on the dime in the matrix. As Pluto reverses, we are in the process of reverse engineering our so-called reality and awakening in droves. That’s the big picture. On the small screen, Mars kicks into gear and we’re in looking back, wondering where we gave it all away.
So what do I mean about reclaiming our “power?”
If we are ruthlessly honest with ourselves, we can witness a pattern of giving “It” away, through looking for approval from others, seeking recognition outside of ourselves and investing in celebrity and false idols. We also stab at low hanging fruit in a culture of instant gratification, and become dazzled by endless material distractions.
If we can engage in this process, we can move forward with a greater sense of who we are, in a world that is constantly chipping away at us in so many ways, seen and unseen.
After we challenge our assumptions of who we are and the standards we have accepted for ourselves, something new emerges, a higher standard, a vibration that resonates closer with the power of creation and prime source. It’s giant step towards self-love, which brings us closer to divine love.
When we do this the Status Quo just isn’t terrified, it verges on impotence.
Recently, the film “Vaxxed” hit the film festival circuit, and made national news when Robert DeNiro, father of a boy with autism, decided to show the film at the Tribeca film festival. There was heavy pressure for DeNiro to not show the controversial movie. DeNiro wanted establish a “dialog” and what he got was a verbal beating from the anti-vax community as well as the likely powers that be, which invest billions in the vaccine industry. But there’s a backlash happening and it’s right in the same wheelhouse that the political status quo is operating out of.
The more push back that’s happening, the more fuel it’s adding to fire of awakening and that fire of course is Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sag. By years end, they will be in a tight trine and the radical impetus of the self to express at an authentic level, will be in alignment with discipline, focus and form.
Many of us are taxed, sapped and zapped, but if we can remove the detritus, unplug from the programs of approval, stop seeking outside of ourselves, we get lighter and as we get lighter, we have more energy, and when we have more energy, we can address our lives from a very different perspective. When we slay the “Status Quo” inside of us, the outer is just a shadow play across the scrim of life. Here’s the trailer for Vaxxed.
