Hi Rad,

I was on Facebook earlier and the first thing I saw was :

"It suggests ecstasy
and delivers disappointment,
causes abject despair,
only to follow by manifesting a miracle"

These words come from Michael Lutin writing about Neptune in Pisces going direct:

http://www.michaellutin.com/nextweekreview.html

I started thinking about Neptune in Pisces Rx vs Stationary vs Direct.  Can you give me a brief rundown on how they differ from one another?  During which state are we more likely to have the rose colored glasses on and during which is the disillusionment most like to occur?

Thanks

Hi Cat,

The archetypal intent of a transit when direct is to induce new evolutionary directions and developments for the individual Soul, as well as the collective of all humans relative to the existing context of 'reality' for each. When the transiting planet then goes retrograde this symbolizes the desire/ need within the individual or collective Soul to make the necessary adjustments to the original impulse so that what is intended can actually be applied to the individual or collective existing state of reality. If those adjustments are then made by the time the transiting planet then goes direct again then the original evolutionary impulse/ intent can be integrated/ applied to that existing state of reality for the individual or collective Soul. If the necessary adjustments are not made then that original evolutionary intent can not be applied in a way that reflects that individual/ collective state of reality. When this is applied to your question about Neptune that results in massive disillusionment. When the adjustments are made then what Lutin is calling 'miracles' may in fact take place.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Rad,

Thank you for that. I'm hoping to have some time to think about this more later when I am not so busy and maybe ask further questions. I was kind of trying to think about it from the perspective of the US and all of the strange stuff in the news these past months (beheadings, Ebola scares, post election spin etc). I just need some time to think about it all with a chart in front of me.

Thanks again as it is a great answer!

Hi Cat,

Since you live in America and are looking for perspectives to understand it now with Neptune transiting in Pisces, remembering that it's natal chart has Neptune's S.Node conjunct it's Moon's S.Node in the 9th, the N.Node of Neptune conjunct it's Moon's N.Node in the 3rd, I would suggest you read the following article that concerns the last election in that country. As we know the 9th House correlates with 'beliefs' and Neptune can correlate with delusions. So we can see the symbolism of where the beliefs of many in that country correlate with delusions, and that the nature of these delusive beliefs cause traumatic events to take place: S.Node in Aquarius. For example, roughly half the population of that country 'believes' the the Earth is less that 10,000 years old, and that the natural law of evolution itself is a delusion !

The election was held while Neptune was retrograde. Remember when we were doing the thread on Neptune as we talked about delusions that are considered to be actual 'reality'. And that at some point ALL delusions will be met with actual reality that then leads to massive disillusionment when that happens. And then what ? This Neptune transit is progressively squaring the USA'S Uranus in Gemini, the ruler of it's S.Node in the 1st House, and is in a Gibbous Phase to it's natal Neptune in Virgo in it's 5th. This same Neptune transit will progressively square it's Mars in Gemini. When that happens the Neptune transit will then be on the 11th House cusp in it's natal Chart. 

God Bless, Rad

The Rest Of The World Tries To Explain To Republicans How Good They Have It Under Obama

Being informed, or apprised, means being aware, having knowledge, or perception of a situation or a set of facts to make decisions that are conducive to a person’s well-being. Since the world has existed in the “Information Age” for over twenty years, there is really no apparent, or logical, reason for any human being in a technologically-advanced society to make uninformed or detrimental decisions.

According to those conversant in the benefits of living in the information age, the valuable phenomenon is the product of the digital industry that created a knowledge-based society aided by a high-tech global community. One of the greatest assets to any society in the Information Age is a population armed with a wealth of knowledge to make well-informed decisions for all aspects of their lives, but this is certainly not the case in America. In what is a damning indictment of American willful ignorance exceeding stupidity, the results of the midterm elections informed the world that Americans are stupid religious fanatics steeped in racism.

Over the past couple of days, an open letter penned by an informed Canadian that calls into question the intelligence of the American voters has been making the rounds on social media. The title of the letter, “You Americans have no idea just how good you have it with Obama,” summarizes a sentiment that is not unique to Canadians puzzled at the results of the midterms. This author has colleagues around the world on five continents, and within a day of the midterm elections messages poured in asking, “what the Hell is wrong with Americans, and why do they hate Obama?” The biggest fear of these colleagues is that with Republicans running Congress, they will create the exact same economic conditions that sent their nation’s economies into dire and still ongoing recessions. Where the Canadian writer differed from foreigners astonished at the results of the midterms was not citing the racism, religious fanaticism, and rank stupidity driving hatred for President Obama.

The Canadian writer, Richard Brunt, wrote that “Many of us Canadians are confused by the U.S. midterm elections. America is leading the world once again and respected internationally — in sharp contrast to the Bush years. So, Americans vote for the party that got you into the mess that Obama just dug you out of? This defies reason.” Yes, it does defy reason, but reason, logic, and rational thought is woefully lacking in a great number of self-inflicted low-information Americans despite they live in the nation that pioneered and advanced the Information Age.

First, it is noteworthy that most people living in foreign nations are more informed and educated about America, its government, economy, and myriad social diseases driving the preponderance of stupidity that produced the irrational results of the midterm elections. For example, where over 47% of Americans cannot name the three branches of government, people across the world can name the three branches and cite each party’s leaders in both houses of Congress. They also have a firm grasp on the tenets of the U.S. Constitution and understand Republicans and the religious right are on a crusade to restrict other American’s 14th Amendment equal rights with a high degree of success due to the Republican Supreme Court. Most Americans could not possibly name even one feature of the 14th Amendment if their lives depended on it.  However, the Constitution is old, and it is the people’s pitiful lack of unawareness of recent and current information that boggles the minds of people around the world.

For example, most citizens of Europe, Asia, South America, and the Middle East, including Islamic nations, are well-aware that America’s economy is leading the world still struggling to crawl out of the Great Recession Bush-Republicans created. They are also informed that the austerity plaguing their nations, preventing economic growth, and driving more of their population into poverty, is a policy Republicans lust to impose on America despite the damage it continues to wreak on people and economies in many European nations. The Canadian, dog bless him, attempted to inform American imbeciles just how fortunate they are to have President Obama as their leader.

Mr. Brunt noted in his letter to stupid religious racists that “the United States’ gross national product growth is the best among all member nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The dollar is at its strongest levels in years, corporate profits are at record highs, the country’s adding 200,000 jobs per month, unemployment is below 6%, and the stock market is near record highs.  Gasoline prices are falling, there’s no inflation, interest rates are the lowest in 30 years, U.S. oil imports are declining, U.S. oil production is rapidly increasing (and leading the world), the deficit is rapidly declining, and the wealthy are still making astonishing amounts of money.” After noting President Obama’s major economic successes, Brunt reminded Americans that, “Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq and killed Osama bin Laden,” but he failed to note the President resisted persistent Republican calls to invade several other nations.  The Canadian ended with a familiar refrain from people around the world; “When you are done with Obama, could you send him our way?”

It is a damn wretched commentary on this nation’s voting public that people around the world are better-informed about America’s economic situation, and why it is leading the world still suffering Bush-Republican economic malfeasance and ineptitude. The situation is made worse when one realizes that there has been nothing but good economic news readily available to even the stupidest religious racists, and still they turned out in droves to put Republicans back in power.

What is stunning, and tragic, is that these moron’s have heard and believe Republicans’ six year-claim that Obama is seizing their guns, preparing to close churches, and imprison Christians that drove them to elect Republicans. The real measure of their stupidity is that there has not been any gun safety laws passed since 1995, and they have been empowered by the Papal-contingent on the Supreme Court to establish and impose their vile version of Christianity on the entire nation even as they decry the assault on their religious liberty.

The effect of god and guns on the results of the midterms, although substantial, was entirely driven by the real reason Republican voters hate this President; sheer unbridled racism. Many pundits rightly cite apathy and delusion as the reason religious psychopaths and corporate-whores easily won Senate seats, and it may have been a big factor, but it is only a factor because the base reason is those teabag maniacs are white. It has been said before, and is worth reiterating; if any white Republican male had achieved even a fraction of the economic achievements and success as President Obama, their image would be on Mount Rushmore, their birthday a national holiday, and every coin in the realm would be imprinted with their head in profile.

What most people around the world have not said, likely to spare Americans further shame and humiliation, is that never before in American history has an entire political movement attempted to thwart America’s success as a surrogate for its President. Before Barack Obama was sworn in as President, conservative pundits were openly announcing they hope he would fail, and to make sure their hopes were realized, a cabal of Republican leaders and conservative pundits met in private and plotted a concerted effort to derail the economy. That is not, as President Obama says, a political party that loves America, it is a party steeped in racial animus like the gun and god crowd that cannot accept the simple fact they have no idea how fortunate they are that Americans twice elected an African American as President.

Americans’ World-Leading Ignorance Empowers GOP’s Immigration Opposition

By: Rmuse

Monday, November, 24th, 2014, 10:23 am   

It is one thing to be embarrassed by something one is personally responsible for, but quite another to be embarrassed by, and for, another person. Many Americans may be proud of this nation, although one can hardly fathom why, but if the majority of people took stock of the level of rank stupidity and willful ignorance of the population at large they would be embarrassed for America and, more to the point, the people themselves.

Over the course of the past six years since Americans elected an African American man as President, there have been a mountainous studies, research, and reports denoting the sad state of affairs in America that can be attributed to the population’s stupidity and ignorance. A couple of weeks ago, another study revealed that Americans are inherently ignorant and, if not for one other more ignorant developed nation, would rank as the world’s stupidest people.

The astounding ignorance or, more aptly, stunning stupidity of Americans is certainly a function of availability bias  generated by mainstream media’s habit of reporting Republican lies as verified facts. The conservative media’s successes at propagating American ignorance was revealed in a new Ipsos Mori “ignorance index” survey revealing that the American people rank second among all developed nations as being incredibly ignorant about a wide range of subjects in their own countries; including immigration. Republicans are well-aware of the overwhelming ignorance plaguing the population, most of whom make up the GOP base, and it is why they claim the President’s immigration action is illegal, unconstitutional, dictatorial, a prelude to ethnic cleansing, and something about internment camps.


There is just one problem for Republicans, the conservative Roberts’ Supreme Court has already ruled that the President is well-within his Constitutional authority to, like every Republican president since Eisenhower, use his executive authority regarding prosecutorial discretion on immigration enforcement. However, yesterday, de facto Speaker of the House and presumed incoming Senate Majority Leader Ted Cruz, referred to something unrelated to legal statutes as “the law of the land” to prove the President’s immigration actions are “unconstitutional.”

Forget Cruz’s absurd assertion that the President’s immigration enforcement actions have anything whatsoever to do with granting amnesty; only the world’s second most ignorant population would accept that as reality. Where Cruz likely impressed the stupid Republican base is when he said, “We should use the constitutional checks and balances we have to rein in the executive. You know, if the read the Federalist Papers, in the Federalist Papers, ‘they talked about’ a president who would rule by diktat and decree rather than follow the Constitution.”

If the Fox News host, Chris Wallace, had an ounce of integrity, he would have stopped Cruz in his tracks, slapped him into reality, and clarified something Texas Ted certainly knows is a true and a verifiable fact; particularly since he swore an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. The Federalist Papers are not the law of the land, they carry no legal authority, and are no more the U.S. Constitution than the Ten Commandments or the bible are.

However, due to Americans being the second-most ignorant people in the developed world, it is likely a relatively large majority believe that if Cruz cited the Federalist Papers as proof the President’s immigration action is dictatorial and unconstitutional on national television, it must be true. Especially since the Fox host did not inform Cruz that the U.S. Constitution, and not the Federalist Papers, is the supreme law of the land.

Obviously, the Founding Fathers envisioned the future when a manipulative cretin like Cruz would attempt to fool ignorant Americans, so they included a clause in the real Constitution to preclude a malcontent like Cruz from fooling what they likely anticipated was a population steeped in ignorance.

In Article Six, Clause 2 of the nation’s founding document it says, “This Constitution, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land.” It is “this Constitution,” that the Roberts’ Supreme Court, including two of the Court’s most conservative members, cited in striking down most of Arizona’s immigration law in 2012 and specifically addressed immigration enforcement discretion.

Writing for the majority ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy included language highlighting the “broad discretion” the executive branch enjoys in matters relating to immigration. He wrote that, “Aliens may be removed if they were inadmissible at the time of entry, have been convicted of certain crimes, or meet other criteria set by federal law. Removal is a civil, not criminal, matter. A principal feature of the removal system is the broad discretion exercised by immigration officials. Federal officials must decide whether it makes sense to pursue removal at all.”

President Obama, like Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush, all decided that it did not always make sense to pursue removal and used executive action to order immigration officials to exercise broad enforcement discretion. In fact, when it came to using executive action to order immigration officials to use broad discretion, Eisenhower issued 3 executive orders, Ford issued two, Reagan issued four, Bush I issued five, and Bush II issued four.

Not one of the Republican presidents faced even one threat of impeachment, lawsuits, or claims that the stinking archaic and impotent Federalist Papers proved their actions were ethnic cleansing, socialism, internment camps, unconstitutional, or ruling by “diktat or decree.” However, those five presidents were Republicans, but more importantly to Republicans and their inherently racist base; they were white guys.

Despite anything the lying Republicans claim, their only opposition to President Obama taking executive action five of his Republican predecessors did is that he is exercising Presidential authority while being Black. Interestingly, there is nothing in the Constitution, the Federalist Papers Republicans think is the Constitution, or the Christian bible for that matter, that remotely resembles a prohibition on a Black man being elected as President. Unfortunately, since Americans are the second-most ignorant people in the developed world, it is likely there are a significant number of racist, religious, Republican sycophants who believe Barack Obama is violating the Constitution by sitting in the Oval Office while being Black.
