Uranus and its rings

Uranus and its revolutionary rings

  Uranus pivots this week on Saturday, reaching it's 'high water mark' in Aries for its second annual foray into this sign. This combination should herald new discoveries for science and astronomy in particular, as pioneering efforts uncover ancient information in heaven, on earth and under the earth. Look for the heavens (ruled by Uranus) especially revealing themselves in new and dramatic ways. Breakthroughs will take place as we gain a greater understanding, and make better use of, exciting innovations in the world around us.

  For those truly interested in truth for its own sake, this should be good news, but unfortunately it's not limited to the narrow confines of the academic world. Since Uranus entered Aries last year on May 27th EDT, information of another sort has become electronically available. Although not the first sharing of sensititive files, July 25th of 2010 saw the greatest single release of war-related documents, while the war was still going on, ever. The logs consist of 91,731 reports, of which 75,000 have thus far been redacted and shared with the public. Prior to their simultaneous release, WikiLeaks made them available to The New York Times in the US, The Guardian in England and Der Spiegel in Germany. This information highlights Aries influence as a sign of war, ruled by Mars (Ares in his Greek incarnation) the God of War. Uranus in Aries suggests that these are some of the pioneering technologies, from remotely driven drone aircraft (like the Nazi-driven V-1s of WWII), to the electronic release of media that is carving out unexpected revelations in this brave new world. On July 25th, 2010, Jupiter, the media planet, was exactly squaring Pluto (undercover activities), suggesting a huge rip (Pluto) in the media fabric (Jupiter), transforming secret materials into public property overnight.

  The records released covered a six year period from January, 2004 to December, 2009. One reported event that took place was known as the Shinwar shooting, where US Marines opened fire on civilians after witnessing a suicide bombing and purportedly coming under small arms fire. The Guardian recorded their actions:

  "The marines made a frenzied escape (from the scene of the bombing), opening fire with automatic weapons as they tore down a six-mile stretch of highway, hitting almost anyone in their way- teenage girls in the fields, motorists in their car, old men as they walked along the road. Nineteen unarmed civilians were killed and 50 wounded." The military report, written by the same soldiers that took part in it, later failed to make any mention of the deaths or injuries. None of the soldiers involved were ever charged or disciplined.

  The Guardian later called the material "one of the biggest leaks in U.S. military history ... a devastating portrait of the failing war in Afghanistan, revealing how coalition forces have killed hundreds of civilians in unreported incidents, Taliban attacks have soared and NATO commanders fear neighbouring Pakistan and Iran are fuelling the insurgency".

TIME Pentagon Papers

Deja vu

"The Guardian also reported that Daniel Ellsberg has described the disclosure as on the scale of his leaking of the Pentagon Papers in 1971 revealing how the U.S. public was misled about the Vietnam War."

  The WikiLeaks report goes on. And on and on.

  War is not good for children and other living things. One of my fellow classmates at West Point, Kevin Carmichael had a sign on the back of his door.

  "War is good business.
Invest your son."

  Uranus is pivoting at four and a half degrees of Aries as it begins it's retrograde motion. This is out of a possible thirty degrees. We're still early in the game. There is much news and information that will be opening up over the next few years, some of which we will be thrilled about (have you seen the Cave of Lost Dreams yet?), and some of which we won't. As time goes on, there will be more information offering additional perspectives.

  If you are a friend of truth, and old fashioned enough to believe that 'thou shalt not kill,' then you don't have anything to worry about or hide.

  If not, then some of the revelations that come out may shiver your timbers. According to Buddha, there are only three things that cannot long be hidden.

  "The Sun, the Moon and the truth."
