What You Get

By Len Wallick

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless”
- Mother Theresa

Now that we have moved past the Full Moon it would seem appropriate to catch up and organize our thoughts. There has been a lot of astrology since the middle of last week. The next few days will witness a lot more. Our task is to build on what yesterday’s blog started. The underlying theme is once again the concept of relationship.

Yesterday, we went back to the basics of the ongoing cardinal T-square. Then we moved to the fundamentals of the Sun-Moon opposition that we call a Full Moon. We recalled how the Full Moon at the end of June was also a lunar eclipse. We demonstrated how that lunar eclipse transformed the cardinal T-square into a cardinal grand cross for a short period of time.

We referred to the orientation of the Sun and Moon during the lunar eclipse as being in relationship to the cardinal T-square, a relationship that one could see by drawing a simple diagram on paper.

We then carried the theme of relationship forward to yesterday’s Full Moon in Aquarius. An event characterized by unusual uncertainty, demonstrated by the fact that some calendars placed it on Sunday, some on Monday. We postulated a first principal of resolving uncertainty, especially in relationship: knowing and being aware of where you are at and how you feel about it.

Today we build on that by further connecting the current astrology with the concept of relationship. We will do that by proceeding from the concept and practice of self awareness to the concept and practice of exchange.

Astrology Today: The Oracle for Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Aquarius weekly of June 13, 2008

The Oracle.

You need to be mindful of the effect another person with an agenda is having on you. I am not inclined to say that someone has a plan you don’t want to go along with, but I want to caution you that you are in a position to go along with something you don’t want only because someone else is pushing you. Therefore, I suggest you delay decisions or commitments until you have a much clearer sense of where you stand with yourself. Many new creative and sexual horizons are opening up within you. You are seeing yourself from an angle you never imagined you could. The result could be liberating, but at the same time being in a state of flux makes you particularly vulnerable to ideas other than your own. The great news is that you have plenty of ideas that are coming right from you. If you’re not discovering who you actually are, you are encountering many truly brilliant potentials. And at such a time, what you think is far more meaningful than what anyone else might think.

Special Audio Edition: Saturn-Uranus

Daily Astrology with Len Wallick is right below this post. And don’t miss the Cosmic Confidential Detective Starter Kit.

Good morning. I’m here with a special audio edition, complete with all kinds of enthusiasm, expletives, dangerous political opinions and the Aries Point.

Today — as I type — Saturn and Uranus are in their fifth and last opposition for this cycle, from Libra to Aries. This is the meeting of seemingly irreconcilable opposites, which we are learning to integrate. It is where change meets stability, and where one is not possible without the other. Nothing ever stays the same. If we can get in on the process of change and evolution, there we find some true stability.

And, incredibly in this moment of astrology, the Sweden-based website Wikileaks yesterday uploaded 91,000 pages of documents about the ‘war’ in Afghanistan. As I explain in the audio, this is stunning in that on the first of these oppositions, Barack Obama was elected promising to escalate the war. I know hardly anyone remembers this; I remember it because I voted for him despite this, having other concerns. And now, the truth comes out.

Here is a version of the story from The Guardian. Here is the story from the Washington Post. And here is a profile on the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange.

Here is how Wikipedia describes Wikileaks — the two are not associated; ‘wiki’ is a Hawaiian word for ‘quick’. And here is Wikileaks itself. Note, the site is getting a lot of traffic and is not coming up. [Note, a reader had posted mirror sites to the first comment below.]

There are some good quotes from Assange in the Wa Po article. I was half awake this morning listening to him being interviewed and I missed his direct quotes, but what he said was really interesting, more philosophical than what you’ll read in that article. Here is how I remember it: information is relational. Once it enters an equation, there is no going back. This kind of information affects the whole situation; the whole gestalt. I am sure this will be repeated — I hope someone has the sense to highlight it.

Simplified chart for the moment of completing the audio. Virgo is rising here in NY at the time; Saturn is below the ascendant, to the left; Jupiter and Uranus are opposite Saturn on the right; Pluto is toward the bottom, at 90-degrees to the opposition. There is other stuff not shown in the simple version -- such as Mercury conjunct Isis/Transpluto -- putting the pieces together and getting the word out. Click for bigger chart.

Astrology freaks who buzz around Planet Waves: here are some things we can do. Let’s look at all five of these oppositions; the dates are easy to find. Let’s take a new look at Obama’s chart (his birthday is coming up on Aug. 4 so that is a good occasion). Let’s see if we can track down when Wikileaks got its domain. For those who are power-surfers, that can be dug out of the Whois database.

And: here to the right is a simplified version of the chart for my doing this audio, which shows Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto; and if you click the chart, a bigger, more complex version comes up.

To Your Full (Moon) Potential

By Len Wallick

…unusually uncertain…”
Benjamin Bernanke, Chairman, Federal Reserve of the United States

No scat, Sherlock. And the chairman of the Federal Reserve gets paid how much to to dispense such profound wisdom? Fortunately he’s not going to get paid a dime for unwittingly describing the current astrology.

Let’s start with the Full Moon.

If you live at zero degrees longitude (London, Le Harve, Valencia, Reggane, Gao or Dori) it will be exact shortly after 1:30 this morning. That’s another way of saying UTC (coordinated universal time). Anywhere to the west of there and we are talking sometime late yesterday. If it’s to the east of zero degrees longitude (also called the Greenwich Meridian) the Full Moon would be sometime after 1:30 am. Of course the twain does indeed meet 12 hours earlier or later (depending on which direction you go) at the international date line that weaves like a drunken sailor from the Arctic to the Antarctic in the Pacific Ocean.

So, if you look at your vampire movie calendar you might see that the Full Moon was yesterday. If you then look at your insurance company calendar that pegs it for today, that’s the unusually uncertain for you. Astrologically it will be one thing after another. Psychologically, things may seem to happen fast. Strategically the plan is to step back and not get too invested in outcome because it will even out. That’s where certainty will ultimately be found. Knowing that whipsaw oscillations will find stability and the long term big picture will prevail.

That’s the reason we’ll start our week with a review of the cardinal t-square. There’s a lot more going on. This blog could take the form of a laundry list of aspects and transits. But that would only add to the unusual uncertainty and who needs that besides some pathetic suit trying to cover his backside? The cardinal t-square. That’s our framework for a long term picture right now. Nuances come and go but the scaffold lasts for years. That way we’ll get a leg up on the befuddled chairman.

Astrology Today: The Oracle for Monday, July 26, 2010

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Taurus weekly of May 28, 2002

The Oracle.

Depression is the inability to move energy, characterized by a kind of downward pressure. Consider the word: it has press built right in; it means pressed down. You may be feeling some urgency to lift or remove a weight that has followed you for quite some time, and this necessity may or may not make things any easier. You don’t have to do anything, of course, but the sense of being compelled to move, change or flow does not need to compel you to stay put. You can exercise choice no matter what the outer world says. But the need you now feel, I would propose, is not coming from the outside; rather it is coming from very close to your core consciousness.

Aquarius Full Moon & Afghanistan

I thought I would mention, while it’s fresh, the synchronicity between today’s Aquarius Full Moon and the website Wikileaks making 91,000 pages of documents on the Afghanistan war available. I haven’t even dipped into the document collection and I may never, but I’m enjoying watching CNN reporters tentatively mention, well, all this stuff they’ve been ignoring for nearly 10 years. Even CNN is confirming that much of this information is about documenting civilian casualties, in the Army’s own words in its official reports.

The information spills into consciousness in the midst of a Full Moon that is in aspect to Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto: this is the real thing, an authentic turning point. We don’t always see the new direction for a while, but this is going to be a craw in the throat of anyone who tries to speak in favor of this disgusting, deceptive travesty. I admit to voting for Obama fully aware that he would escalate the war; I held my nose when I did so. There was a lot else at stake, and neither the military contractors nor Congress were going to let go of it too soon anyway.

Let’s remember that this business was started just eight weeks after the Sept. 11 false flag attacks and is very much a creature of Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, who are now all but forgotten.

Remember too that even after the release of the Pentagon Papers in 1971, which described in detail what a total mess Vietnam was, the war did not end for years. The report covered through 1967, was released to the government in 1968, and the New York Times started publishing it in 1971. The war ends two years later — with untold lives of Vietnamese, Laotians, Cambodians and Americans in that time, despite all the lies of the Johnson administration exposed.

From the time the report came out, government officials knew the truth. Then consider how much happened in the years after: everything from the Tet offensive to the bombing of Cambodia to the shooting of four students Kent State.

I remember when that war ended, and I studied it in history class many times, and everyone looked back and thought: gee whiz, how did we let that happen?

Now you have your answer.
