Ah, finally! The Reagan Revolution is over. The sanctification of greed, material accumulation and earth exploitation is finally winding down after being launched in 1980 with the election of US President Ronald Reagan. The “trickle down” economics he promoted was the Orwellian doublespeak for “trickle up” economics which created the great Feudal-system divergence of wealth and poverty we see today.
Since Neptune entered Pisces in 2011, the sign it rules, drug and alcohol regulations have gradually eroded as a culture focused on productivity and return on investment began suffering the effects of a life lived solely for the accumulation of wealth – depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome and many other newly-named syndromes. Chill pills were developed in the form of pharmaceuticals until recently as we finally accepted that nature has its own substances for chillin’ mankind that need no patent.
It’s rare to go walking now without smelling some marijuana. My college years weren’t even close to the drug consumption that occurs today. But it’s nice to see some focus on relaxation; or as my meditation teacher says, functioning as a human “being” rather than a human “doing.”
And then there is the new craze for psychotropic drugs – regular doses for mind expansion and micro-doses if you still want to be Reagan Revolution productive and rich.
In otherworldly news, in case you missed it, the US government decided to admit in early 2020 during the beginning of pandemic fear and isolation that, yes, there are UFOs (which, by the way, is simply saying we don’t identify something, i.e., we aren’t in control). It was generally ignored news so last week the television news show 60 Minutes made sure to remind us.
Cool. We’re finally chillin’, looking to the skies, and wondering about the universe. After 40 years of buying stuff, selling stuff and moving stuff around, it’s a nice change.
Jupiter will only be in Pisces for a couple months before it returns to Aquarius at the end of July so look for UFOs before August when you may be asked to go back indoors to watch Netflix. But don’t worry, in January 2022 Jupiter will go back into Pisces and later in the year join Neptune. At that time, I would expect the US government to drop another UFO news-bomb on us. Maybe they will even tell us that some of the beings walking around the Pentagon are from outer space. With Neptune in Pisces, you never know.
Wait, Pluto is still in Capricorn until 2024
As many have pointed out during the pandemic, illness is not political. This is rational, and correct. However, those that want to control (who often find their way into politics) use “shock and awe” to make power grabs. If you are interested in global politics, China and Russia are making very large strides in this way. The US response is to increase military might. But I’d recommend learning to speak Chinese anyway.
If you’re not interested in global politics, consider that the government telling you suddenly during a pandemic that it was lying and making those that said otherwise objects of humiliation, scorn and ridicule must have a strategic goal. A government that denied a pandemic suddenly releasing UFO information is quite interesting and suspect.
In 2020, several planets (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars) lined up in Capricorn bringing a collective global response unseen in our earth history. Capricorn is authority itself and it has not relinquished its power. That it “allowed” people to use previously-illegal drugs legally is simply a means to keep people from getting angry and ill while being asked to isolate. Pluto which is about power, control, and transformation (and ultimately evolution) is still in Capricorn.
Remember, in the 1960s the government tried to stop the use of drugs as groups of young adults sat in San Francisco parks and dropped acid. Now the government is promoting the same so there must be a reason.
As the US government and US state governments reduce control of drugs and alcohol, they have been increasing control in many other ways including the recent reduction of more flexible voting options in southern states. Go drop acid and forget to vote is the message.
The astrological message is that it’s time to chill but also time to stay vigilant. In a culture that seems to always go to extremes, chillin’ and vigilance may be seen as opposites which can’t be accomplished by one person. As you learn in astrology, it’s all about balance. The more you chill, the more energy you have to be vigilant when needed. Anyone with a house cat knows how this works. I’m sleeping and relaxed, like spilled milk; now I’m jumping ten feet up the wall to catch a fly.
But more importantly, as the use of marijuana and psychotropic drugs increases, I would expect some member of the Pluto/Uranus in Virgo opposite Saturn in Pisces generation (born during the mid to late 1960s), to re-trend the use of lava lamps (image from Amazon.com). If you don’t know why you need one, find a hippie and ask.
