Like many of you, I watched the presidential press conference yesterday. I watched it on CNN, and the message was upsetting enough, but what CNN did was to run a live feed of the oil spill down in the corner of the screen during that entire hour. Dramatic, effective, and horrifying…a clearer picture of what’s really happening than any amount of words could convey.
Like many of you, I pondered the planets…Uranus’ position for the whole time at the unstable 29th degree of Pisces, the Saturn-Neptune quincunx, etc. But I didn’t carry through with it, couldn’t begin to know what the positions mean in terms of when and how it’s going to stop. That sort of mundane astrology forecasting isn’t my forte.
This morning, I got an email from Amanda Owen, who has written an excellent summary about this tragic accident. (IF in fact, it is an accident, but I’m not even going to go into what I think about that.) If you are concerned, I’d highly recommend you read the article on her site at: http://amandaastrology.blogspot.com/2010/05/saturn-plus-neptune-and-oil-drugs-and.html . And here’s a link to the live feed: http://www.cnn.com/video/flashLive/live.html?stream=stream2&hpt=T2 .
Let me introduce Amanda briefly. I have known her at least 25 years, from the time she was a young astrologer, and even then I was impressed with her work–it was clear that it was quality work from a quality individual.
Regular readers met her recently when I reprinted her article, Neptune’s Role in Giving and Receiving. If you’re intrigued by the title, you may also enjoy the excellent discussion we had in the comment section. Her book on the topic is about to be published, and I hope to entice her to let us have an excerpt or two.
PS. Do you wish there was something you could do for the oceans around the spill? This week’s article in Vibration Magazine’s blog is very timely: Healing the Earth’s Hot Spots–Putting Essences on a Map. It describes a technique which has potential, since it uses prayer and the power of intention. If you don’t own any essences, you can still invoke the essence by writing its name on a slip of paper and anchoring it to the map. Rescue Remedy is always a good choice in a crisis.
