Mercury Retrograde Ends Friday :: Another Whopper

Mercury stations direct by Lanvi Nguyen.

This time around, Mercury retrograde was augmented by a pair of eclipses, one in Taurus and one in Scorpio. And both Venus and Jupiter crossed over the Aries Point (the first degree of Aries, or the sidereal vernal point). That’s a lot, and a lot is what we got.

THE MERCURY RETROGRADE that ends Friday in Taurus began May 8 in Gemini. It deserves an Oscar for most dramatic and a Pulitzer for most news in a month. These events, which happen about three times a year, grow more pronounced as we dive deeper into Full Digital Conditions.

This time around, Mercury retrograde was augmented by a pair of eclipses, one in Taurus and one in Scorpio. And both Venus and Jupiter crossed over the Aries Point (the first degree of Aries, or the sidereal vernal point). That’s a lot, and a lot is what we got.

Let’s see: we learned that Roe v. Wade was about to be overturned; the World Health Organization (WHO), Bill Gates and other globalists were trying to start a new pandemic, based on a plan published last November; and we learned that in at least in one case, false allegations made during the #MeToo movement could result in a libel verdict — that of Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard.

And there were two noted mass shootings (and many others), one in Buffalo, New York on May 14, and another in Uvalde, Texas on May 24. This has once again brought up the issue of gun control. It’s time to ask whether these incidents are part of a coordinated program.

In a diversity of ways, all of this amounted to addressing unfinished business. The business of feminism was left undone, and hanging on the thread of one Supreme Court decision. The #MeToo movement is an untended wound on society, demanding mature attention. It finally got before a jury. We will have not succeeded in prosecuting the medical fraud of the past two years, there was one small success — the World Health Assembly of the United Nations rejected Pres. Biden’s proposed amendments to international health regulations.

The First Ever Leak of a SCOTUS Draft Decision

On May 2, during the first Mercury storm, a draft decision of the Supreme Court was leaked to the press [see Planet Waves coverage and also here]. Back in 1973, the position of the court on that very ruling was leaked ahead of its release — but a draft decision had never seen the light of day.

Someone, it would seem, wanted to activate the liberal base and get some protests going before it was too late. Occasionally I see a few people picketing outside the County Courthouse across the street from my apartment. That will not derail the train.

There was no judicial restraint in his writing; no effort to show that he truly appreciates the complexities of the situation, or that he is taking balanced and minimalist view. He does not concede that people, or society, may be harmed, and thus makes no allowances for that potential harm.

The court has a 6-3 majority of alleged conservatives who seem ready to overturn it, despite promises made during their confirmation hearings. The final vote may be 5-4, as I suspect Chief Justice John Roberts will side with the liberal bloc; he has in the past.

The question is, what will happen when women no longer have the right to terminate a pregnancy? This is not about fetuses — it’s about everyone’s right to make their own decisions about their body. After an 18-month mandatory “vaccination” campaign that nearly everyone cheered, there is little moral ground left for anyone to claim a right to health freedom.

And we face the very real problem of every pregnancy becoming a potential crime scene, as any miscarriage can be construed as a voluntary termination. Will every pregnancy have to be registered with the government? Will there be a Department of Pregnancy and investigators to check whether a pregnancy ended naturally or by will?

We are skating on the thin ice of The Handmaid’s Tale.

Sorry you missed the gay monkey sex rave!

First Ever Claimed Monkeypox Outbreak was Planned

While everyone had their eyes on the Supreme Court, a pre-existing plan for the world’s first outbreak of something called “monkeypox” was launched. The plan was established in a November 2021 report that called for the outbreak to begin six months later, in May 2022.

You can tell these people love nature. “Monkeypox” is an antisex campaign; the purveyors are saying don’t have sex, and while you’re at it, don’t go to summer music festivals (where presumably people have sex). Specifically, though, the fuss is over men having sex with other men. Wonks at the WHO claim the point source was a gay rave in the Canary Islands, where we all must have a boyfriend who attended.

They are pushing the panic button in the UK and Europe. From the Daily Mailwhich served so well in the “covid” rollout:

“Dr Hans Kluge, the head of WHO’s European division, has warned the current outbreak of the tropical disease ‘may not be containable’. He warned Europe had become the new epicentre of the virus, with the outbreak linked to sexual transmission at raves and festivals on the continent.”

With digital, everything old is new again. The last gay virus was announced 38 years ago — the alleged “human immunodeficiency virus”or HIV. Now we know enough to see the homophobia for what it is. And a lot of people know a heck of a lot more about viruses than they ever thought they would in January 2020.

There was a rapid response, and the medically-abused public is not exactly eating this like candy.

Depp v. Heard: What Used to Pass for Social Justice

In our era, if you don’t support the latest social justice campaign, you may be subpoenaed before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Such was the #MeToo movement, during which any may could be accused of anything. And it was used as a fundraising boon for those who could pull it off.

In the Depp situation, the American Civil Liberties Union (may its memory of former greatness rest in peace) made an arrangement with Amber Heard, the ex-wife of actor Johnny Depp, to collect a large donation, then place an op-ed in the Washington Post — so they could raise money against accused misogynist Trump.

In the article, Heard portrayed Depp as a wife-beater. He sued her for damage to his career and reputation. No evidence of wife beating came up in six weeks of testimony — only of husband beating, by Heard. So much for “believe all women.” The message here seems to be listen to everyone and reach a rational conclusion.

During the #MeToo craze, it was considered a crime to even suggest a woman might ever lie or do something wrong. Ultimately, that is what the jury was ruling on.

Let’s check the astrology of the verdict, which came in at 3:19 pm on Wednesday, June 1 in Fairfax, Virginia.

Things are not going well — better get someone with Chiron in the 7th house. Preferably in Libra!

Chiron in the 7th House in Aries

First, the decision came in just two days before Mercury retrograde ended, packing it against “the truth comes out” quality that I have seen particularly in the station-direct (which happens Friday). It also tends to happen right around Mercury stationing retrograde, as with the Supreme Court decision being leaked.

Chart for the Depp v Heard verdict Wednesday in Fairfax, Va. View larger.

The 7th house of this chart is fraught and dramatic; we see the Mars-Jupiter conjunction near the Aries Point, exaggerating and publicizing the private lives of public people. The Aries Point is where private and public matters intersect.

Floating on the 7th cusp — the western horizon, which is the relationship angle — is Chiron. This unusual planet almost always has a double edge.

So it’s best to look for multiple ways it might present in the chart, and to take a balanced view. Often, experience and how people relate to it are the determining factor, rather than an interpretation of the chart.

The obvious comment here is the state of injury in the relationships. People obviously identified with the proceedings; they were the greatest judicial drama since the trials of O.J. Simpson and George Zimmerman. But the opera was played out by two privileged Hollywood types, who reminded us that for all their riches and opportunity, they have more problems than we do.

Chiron in Aries demands sincere self-actualization. The concept has been all but eliminated by the inside-out consciousness created by digital conditions. There is very little left of our inner life; it’s been replaced by an obsession with forming tribes.

Communicating Through Differences

The other quality of Chiron 7th is its ability to communicate with those who are different. I love Barbara Hand Clow’s assessment that if space aliens land on the White House lawn, they should send someone with Chiron in the 7th house to meet them.

But this would only work if everyone is sober. This chart makes a bold statement about the toxic effects not just of fame and publicity, but also about the impact of alcohol and substances. This was a major factor in the testimony.

We see this in the aspect pattern of the Moon. In a public chart, the Moon can represent both the question itself, and the condition of the public. The second centaur Pholus (discovered 1992) represents multigenerational alcohol issues.

However, there is another version of drunkenness, which is being intoxicated on power. If Depp can drink, Heard is a fair match in her ability to get high on fame, position and victimhood.

At the time the verdict was read, the Moon is making an exact opposition to Pholus — exact meaning a one arc minute opposition, exact to one 21,600th of the zodiac. It could not be closer; it is within the margin of error, of a planet so distant as Pholus.

In a way, we need to look no further than this aspect to understand what happened. The public is brought in, because that is what the Moon does — and in the sign Cancer, it speaks to the most personal aspects of our lives. It lands right in our home. And it is very closely square Mars. That home can be an angry place, as many people find out. We say words like “abuser” easily. Eager to blame someone, especially men, do very little studying the underlying dynamics.

But we sure do like to watch them play out.

We will be living with the effects of this Mercury retrograde for a long time — particularly the implications of losing Roe v Wade.
