Growing up as a child in 1950's Brooklyn, New York, when it was populated by fathers who had returned from World War Two with various degrees of PTSD from what they had done and seen and the sons upon whom they had rolled their shit like downhill racers was frightening to me. Barbershops all had signs saying "No Politics, No Religion," as a hedge lest a fight break out between men who actually knew how to fight and to kill. Scary times. It was a time when you kept your mouth shut if you knew what was good for you and that time has come again, but not for those who don't know what is good for them. I don't know about them, but my mother, despite her having severe mental health issues requiring hospitalization, was still in possession of enough of her faculties to inculcate in me the forever true concept that "Two wrongs don't make a right," and, "If you have nothing nice to say about a person, don't say anything.” I would wager that your caregivers have said the same thing to you when you were a child and if you're a caregiver you say that to your children. So why have so many otherwise nice and smart and kind and rational people decided that they can (1) say whatever they want, (2) assume that you think a certain way and (3) if that certain way isn't like them then see Number (1)? I'm not saying that what they are saying is necessarily incorrect but it is the coarseness of how they say it that goes against what moms have taught us for centuries. There actually is an AstroLogical aspect in play that explains why people feel "inclined" to shoot their mouths off and it's the fact that the planet Saturn in its home sign of Capricorn is one degree away from exactly square (90 degrees) to the comet Chiron in the feisty, argumentative and bossy sign of Aries. Chiron is a relatively tiny body compared to the planets but damned if it doesn't often explain things that other aspects and planets don’t. Before the Aries keyboard warriors (and one Aries in particular) takes me to task for that description, please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man who loves the sign Aries and I understand that Aries are here to learn how to be strong and aggressive and we are here to be tested in our beliefs and self-confidence in reaction to their using the rest of us for their learning experiences! ;-) They use each other, too, of course, Aries people, I mean. But when Saturn and Chiron are square each other, no matter what sign they are each in, you have a situation where anyone who has a problem with authority has a problem, period. This can be daddy issues but it can be much more than that, too. Anyone who resents the fact that we must all bend our will to rules and structure and laws and discipline and authority figures and...what? You say that THAT is precisely the problem? That this or that authority figure ain't measuring up to what you think is the right way to be? OK, you may be right, but two wrongs don't make a right, and using echo chamber approved and accepted hate speech as a new kind of Masonic handshake to identify you as one of the not-so-secret society is still hate speech and two wrongs don't make a right, my momma done told me, as the song goes. And, to add to the S**t stirring, the planet Mars, which "rules" the sign Aries, is sexytile with Chiron/Aries and that means let the buttons be pushed and the long-suppressed and hidden issues come out like bulls entering the barbaric bull ring, strong, fierce but ultimately doomed. I write my nightly screeds in the hope of helping everyone navigate their day knowing the Astro Weather Energy Matrix, true, but my ultimate goal is a hippie-dippy one: I'd like to see love reign over hate and anger so we can all live in peace. And that requires everyone to remember what their caregivers taught them, the good stuff, I mean. Not the Chiron stuff. There's way too much Chiron in the public discourse now and its like fluoride in the water systems. I prefer distilled water for its purity. But hey, that's just me.
