Twists, Turns, and Dips on the Garden Path
First the trouble must be seen and Saturn-Pluto with the miner's lantern is taking off on a downward journey for a thorough investigation. Interested parties will have a lot to observe. An uncompromising view could be enlightening and at best, might lead the way to influential action. Some prefer the surface pretties, and I agree, they can be wonderfully pleasant. Others feel great relief when they discover Pluto's secrets, as dark, mysterious, and disturbing as they might be.
The top 1% of the American population is now in control of 90% of the country's wealth and is still sucking more. This is a problem. A big one. Our nations are led by criminals. People don't trust life so they've selected these hard corrosive humans to protect them. The trouble is, the leaders have become a threat in and of themselves, and the real dangers have become obtuse and unrecognizable. Speaking of gardens, within Hades lie the Elysian Fields, and the primrose path lovers could find a garden they never imagined if they were brave enough to go down, pay the boatman, and cross the river leaving behind whatever is hindering access to the deepest treasures available. I associate Scorpio with honesty, a very strange phenomenon that can't be explained and often can't be deciphered, especially in ourselves. Yet humans crave it, and of course, fear it. We have a million reasons to cover up the naked truth and most of the time that's necessary, but in this Scorpio season with Saturn coming to square Pluto, a fine opportunity has come to strip the pretense. If people are afraid that removing the facade might be too much for others, it probably wouldn't be if we trusted them and gave them the benefit of our overwhelming doubt. And thankfully, Saturn in Libra infuses the ugly realities with grace and beauty as they slowly reveal themselves, along with providing useful equilibrium. A good combination. Our financial systems are based on trust (Scorpio) and betrayal ensures downfall. Boy howdy, do insurance companies know this. Your Public Option has been a game from the beginning and a fantastic example of the marketing manipulation that defines modern day politics. And who started it? Everyone. And what is it? No one knows. It really isn't real. Yet it's become the cornerstone of existence and the sole object of hope's pin. This thing has has turned into a magnificent gift from the universe and here you are on your knees. By the time it's played with and pulled apart there'll be nothing left of the mighty toy. Then you can get up off your knees, hopefully before they'll have to be replaced. Knees aren't designed to take that kind of wear and at $80,000 a pop, I can't afford your replacement surgeries. It's interesting as I listen to ordinary Americans around the country. Their question is, "What exactly is it?" And a great question it is.
"Does this bill mean it would be illegal not to buy insurance?"
I can answer that.
"Yes." So Pluto, Saturn, and Venus are playing magic tricks with a commodity beyond the senses, unknown to everyone, yet desired by almost all, more and more as it becomes out of reach. If only they knew where to grasp. Honesty and trust are peeking in and out, waiting for buyers. What on earth does this Public Option represent? What we can't have? What we shouldn't have? What we really don't want after all? What we really don't need. How much do we have to pay for what we desire and who possesses it? And what in heaven's name do we truly want? People will be all right no matter what, and desperation is often misplaced. Don't let Pluto and Saturn fool you. Even they aren't getting along. And somewhere intelligence hums. Perhaps it's on the primrose path. But I do have a question for the followers of light, love, and harmony. Are we going to continue to talk about peace while scattering body parts all over the Middle East and Asia nonstop? Are you going to continue on the garden path sidestepping or leaping over the dead bodies? Are you going to try and try to be "positive" so people will like you? Central Lockup is going to burst at the seams soon with the trapped negatives rounded up and incarcerated. Things need to be discussed in depth and at length with an eye toward knowledge and even justice. The fact of the matter is, whodunnit is not that much of a mystery. The hardest kernel of dishonesty to face is the belief that the 1% are the guilty ones, and that you are completely innocent. It's not even some Senator or a member of a bad political party who dunnit. The whole collective is in on it. We all created this monster called the Public Option in the season of spooks and goblins. A symbol of our confusion and delusion. Now they can't decide whether to opt in or out. Kind of like a belly button. It's genuine madness. I might join you on the garden path if this keeps up.
