So the song goes, “you picked a fine time to lead us, Barrack.” Amen to that. In Cosmos and Psyche, we read that in November 2008, the month and year Obama was elected, Saturn moved into unfavorable alignment with Pluto. It meant “an atmosphere of gravity and tension” for three to four years. It meant “epochal closure:” “the end of an era,” “the end of innocence.” It meant “the destruction of an earlier mode of life that in retrospect may seem to have been marked by widespread indulgence, decadence, naiveté, denial, and inflation. Profound transformation was a dominant theme.” So let us take a look at your future.
The author of Cosmos and Psyche was Richard Tarnas, a distinguished philosopher and cultural historian, who spent 30 years on the bad alignments of Saturn and Pluto. He found them astoundingly consistent with the archetypal patterns human history.
Consistent with the current bad alignment of Saturn and Pluto, we are moving from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius. The symbol for Pisces is two attached fish, one swimming upstream, the other downstream. Pisceans can’t make up their minds. In Astrologer’s Handbook, we read the Piscean nature is sensitive and extremely responsive to the thoughts and feelings of others. They unconsciously absorb the mental outlook of those around them. They desperately want to do the right thing but as a rule they do not have strong willpower. Their charm, humor and sympathy open gates of opportunity, but unfortunately, for opportunists as well. Their kindly nature allows them to get in the habit of allowing things to drift.
The Aquarian personality, on the other hand, operates under the sign of the water-bearer, of brotherhood and fraternity. The planet Uranus rules Aquarius, and by the way the United States. Those who befriend Aquarians have their unswerving loyalty. Aquarians can be eccentric, determined and stubborn in their beliefs. The key phrase of Aquarians is “I know.” There is no snobbery in the Aquarian nature. They hate hypocrisy. Aquarians operate as equals among equals. They say, “don’t fence me in.”
The transformation Obama is hastening is from Piscean to Aquarian. So there you have it. You will no longer think of yourselves as African-American. Thanks to Obama, by the time he leaves office you will all be All-American. It is written in the stars. We will all get along.
