Aries, War, Aggression, Strength, and Potency
Within the wondrous, magical, astonishing orchestration of the universe, astrology has once again shown its mettle. The ascension of Congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi, to the highest position of power ever held by a woman in the United States, is accompanied by a plethora of astrological configurations pointing to this historic event.
Despite violence in her history, the USA with her four Cancer planets has an instinct to protect life, not destroy it, as evidenced by the way she has sheltered and nourished refugees and immmigrants like no other country in history.
The height of her glory as a rescuer, and her military strength as a heroine, came in WWII. Most of you can't imagine what it was like, but the sensation of being liberated by Americans was something almost impossible to describe. This will remain forever in the collective psyche.
After WWII came the long decline as she abused her military might in a series of ignoble wars, the humiliation culminating now in Iraq. A complete change of direction is in the cards, as the USA Mars has just turned retrograde in Libra by progression.
I remember when Operation Iraqi Freedom was launched like a hollywood movie, and I called my local radio talk show remarking that it was exactly like a lynch mob. This was the mission and the mission has been accomplished. End of saga. The pursuit and lynching of the insignificant man, Saddam Hussein, was one of the worst displays of male impotence I've ever witnessed. Our lowest point in leadership reached. Enter Nancy Pelosi. The perfect time. Everything in synch. And none other than an Aries warrior herself. The potency to break through the 200 year barrier of male domination, and go up against the President of the United States of America, head to head, is REAL potency. True blue. Iron-cored. A phenomenon of strength and aggression indeed.
Now we come to the battle. The fight against this conflict in Iraq will be the centerpiece at first, with this warrior, mother of five children, leading the offensive. The myth and magic are beyond the ordinary.
But the deeper significance is the great debate about war, aggression, self defense, and militarism which is just ahead for this nation. Leave it to the Aries woman to get it started. The Aries woman turning the god of war into the instrument for the proper management and ultimate end of the war. The end of the extreme abuse of military power. So this country can progress to her destiny indicated by Saturn in Libra.... cooperation, debate, compromise, and balance of polarities.
The President has an Aries Midheaven, his public persona and point of highest worldly achievement. He plays the part of an aggressive, potent warrior. Badly. He has a Moon in Libra, and contrary to all that has been built to convey his resoluteness, it is a facade. He is too hungry for approval. Our new leader, third in line to take his position now, is the warrior who has come to challenge his strength. She has a Moon in Scorpio. I think we can all agree that this is not a weak, people pleasing position. If anything, learning to compromise will be her challenge. The most fortuitous indication of all; her North Node of the Moon at 20 degrees Libra is conjunct this progressed Mars retrograde and very close to the USA Saturn in Libra. The best possible point in her chart.
The War on War has begun. And ain't I a woman.
