Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 11-17, 2011

Yay, Mercury goes direct at 8:43 pm at 3 degrees, 51′ of Sag on Tuesday, Dec. 13. It will leave its Storm on Dec. 18, the same day that it sextiles the Moon. The couple of days on either side of the station call for extra caution when driving or making important transactions.
Sunday, Dec. 11 is probably going to be pretty stressful due to the long-term Uranus-Pluto square, exacerbated by the Moon in Cancer squaring Uranus at 9:40 am and opposing Pluto at 9:04 pm. Since there is really only one global “revolution” in progress and that is the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon, this will most likely be the focus of events for the period. Just chasing people out of public parks and squares is not going to put OWS out of business, not at all.
As for the personal impact of this transit, you will probably strongly object to anyone who tries to make you knuckle down in any way. Us regular people have had it in regards to companies taking advantage of consumers, of companies dictating what laws are passed by our legislatures and what ones are enforced by consumer protection agencies and the FDA, and so forth. People who have ignored OWS or any other local protest will finally be ready to make their own statement, whether public or private. They may change their financial institutions, storm police lines, carry a picket, or just silently vow to never be a victim of the Powers That Be anymore.
Since there are so few outer planet aspects this week, maybe we can think a little bit about the long-term impact of the long-term square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. We are revisiting the conjunction of these planets which occurred in the 1960s, a decade remembered more for its protests than just about anything else (other than the music, of course). To me, the protests are not against merely the cultural majority, but the entrenched power (Pluto) of Big Business (Capricorn) which has wrongfully usurped too much influence in politics, government, and just about everything else you can think of. The conjunction won’t come until next June, folks, and so anyone who dreams that the protests will just go away is smoking something. The Haves seem to be quite threatened by the thousands who have shown some form of support for this grass-roots movement, leading to the attempts to brutally shut down the sit-in and campouts. May I also refer readers to a pretty good article that appeared on the MundaneAstrologers dot com site at http://mundaneastrologers.com/research-intiative/uranus-in-aries-square-pluto-in-capricorn/ ALSO, a related article appeared on Blog.MundaneAstro.org at http://www.blog.mundaneastro.org/2011/11/02/the-arab-spring-an-astrological-look-back-and-forecast/ (sorry about the typos in that latter article but I can’t do anything about it) This latter article focuses more on the Arab Spring, which will apparently continue into 2012 and which the author compares to the 1989 collapse of the Soviet Union (and I might add, of the Berlin Wall). You might want to make a chart of the foundation of Tunisia and Egypt before reading about the current “Jasmine” revolution. Tunisia: June 15, 1956, 1700 hours, Tunis. Egypt: June 19, 1953, 1:30 am, Cairo.
