The United States. It's a hodgepodge of contradictions. Contradictions don't last. A nation at cross purposes to itself. America is its own worst enemy. At the core is a lack of knowledge.
I myself understand. I too an a hodgepodge of contradictions often at odds with myself.
The United States and I share some very interesting astrology chart
contacts in this regard. Saturn squares the US sun in its natal chart.
My moon conjunct the us sun shows a powerful emotional bond to my birth
country and also shares the saturn square with its visceral distaste
for government. In addition my pluto c onjuncts the us saturn making
for a rather uncomfortable experience of me having to challenge rather
extremely the structure of the United States system itself. My sun
opposes the saturn pluto combo meaning its personal, bitch. In
addition that shitty us saturn opposes my mercury (this post is mercury
saying f-off to the us system). To make matters better my sad Venus is
also opposed to this saturn. In case no one noticed I'm in bulgaria
right now nursing my lifelong frustration.
I have felt like an
outsider crushed by the system of the US most of my life. Part of this
is because my parents are immigrants and my father especially never
adapted to us culture. He was always a bulgarian in his heart. I on
the other hand am almost from a different time in many ways. Like a
future America as America was meant to be not how it is.
close to people who relate to themselves from this point of view. One
planet one people. I don't believe in nation, race, or religion. My
identity is human. I relate to people's personal experience in life,
not to the fake labelling system which hides our true nature from each
other and destroys human intimacy at every level.
people but lies are lies. The human experience was made to be intimate.
We are meant to be close to each other not far away. We are meant to
be a human family. Yet everyday we invent reasons to deny this because
of fear, insecurity, attachment, and a host of other half baked
We are destroying our own greatest desires. We have
forgotten what we truly yearn for. This is true for all of humanity in
Survival has become our greatest excuse. We claim we
are surviving yet every day ignoring the warning signs that say
otherwise. Individuals don't survive. In case you didn't notice you
need at least one male and one female for a human race to survive at the
most basic definition. So why is the us so obsessed with
"individuality". It's great for art but it makes a really shitty
survival strategy and is in fact antiromantic. So much for intamacy.
In the us chart this is signified by moon in Aquarius. Emotions
through ideology of individuality in this case. But unromantic Aquarius
opposes the hot romantic Leo. The us is an unromantic country with
cold emotions often caught up in instances of ideological turmoil.
Great for science though and for friendship based on common ground
My problem here is that my saturn in Leo is at odds with
the US moon in Aquarius. There is just no winning. America's ideals of
freedom I find cold and lacking. There isn't enough order in them for
my saturn. I'd rather guns be banned and kids raised to respect a
higher standard of personal discipline. I'd rather live in a society
that has a higher level of personal maturity when it comes to creating
consciousness. I like some of the freedom of expression but hate how it
becomes a cause onto itself. Where is the final choice to embrace true
freedom of personal expression as a whole?
But the US is not
whole! Americans don't agree on much. Instead of embracing true
freedom we have gotten bogged down in fighting each other over what true
freedom means and then imposing those views on the other half and then
on the whole freaking world!
It can't continue people. It goes
against liberty, the right to self determination. In my personal
opinion States should start pursuing their cultural ends. With the
exception only of fossil fuel and nuclear technology regions of America
must differentiate through the increase in local power choice (States
power vs feds) within the limits of conscious understanding. America
must evolve from a nation into a civilization. It cannot remain like a
giant kindergarten where everything is controlled by self appointed
Thats it for now. More thought for food.
