Rahu's Sex Scandals In Cancer
Rahu, the head-of-the-dragon eclipse point, transited into Cancer September 7. It will stay there for 18 months. Transits through signs give general but global influence.
Because birth charts show both the the signs' background influence and the houses' domains of action, they are more specific. Cancer is the eighth house in the U.S. chart, where the dragon roars.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, a female planet, and also the memory. The deep secretive eighth house is calamity. And because the eighth is also sex, those scandals often involve sex.
There's one more ingredient for this brew. Vedic Astrology uses transits for prediction. This astrology also uses Dasas (planetary cycles) as a primary tool for its very specific predictions. The current U.S. Rahu Dasa lasts 18 years. Dasas also have four subperiod planets, and these lower levels influence the higher levels. Here is the current Dasa lineup for the U.S. chart,
The subperiod Venus Dasa cycle began August 24, 2017 and continues until February 5, 2018. This matches with the U.S sex scandals. Further, with transit Venus currently in the U.S. twelfth house of loss, the revelations of sexual abuse are at a maximum.
Is this fight for respecting women another piece of the Second Progressive Age? You bet!
Mercury Retrograde Train Wrecks
This tough December 3 to 23 Mercury retrograde brought twin train wrecks. There was the literal one December19 in Washington State and the figurative one, the next day -- the sweeping tax bill.
The November 2 entry explained this Mercury retrograde is afflicted by Saturn and that Mercury crosses Saturn three times due to the retrograde -- November 28, December 6 and finally January 13. These conjunction dates are more like bulls eyes on a whole target area of Saturn afflicting Mercury extends from late November to mid January.
Decisions made during Mercury retrograde are always confused, and Saturn's deceptive influence magnifies misapprehensions. It will take a while for the tax bill to be understood -- certainly not until after Mercury crosses Saturn a third time January 13. Then, as the public's disbelief of the Republican claims about the tax bill solidifies, as entitlements are cut, and as the economy tanks (which seems inevitable), the bill will be correctly understood to be massively deceptive and harmful.
Just A Regular Guy
I had passed him at the Walmart entrance before I turned to look at again. He was an average Joe, sitting on the park bench. Maybe in his thirties, lanky, tousled brown hair, earth colored shirt, jeans.
But something hit me, like a ray of sunlight..... It was blue. I stopped, turned back saying, "You have God in your eyes." He turned his head a little toward me, "That's interesting. A lot of people have been saying that about me recently."
Leaving the store, though, there he still was, just being. I said, "If you're not careful, you're gonna make a lot of people happy this Christmas." He nodded, and as I passed by, got up and walked to my right, saying, "God bless you and merry Christmas"
I looked back after a few seconds and saw him ambling across the road to the parking area. A few seconds later, I looked again, and he was gone -- the blue sun ray of his eyes vanished like that puff of warm air. There is indeed order in the universe.
