LILITH REVOLUTION

The effects of Uranus square Pluto are clearly being felt around the world. The Pluto/Uranus conjunction in the 1960’s was the seed moment that started this process. This square had been mainly looked at as representing political change, but I also see it as a sexual revolution as it was in the 1960’s with the advent of the pill. In the years ahead we must watch out for triggers from either Mars or Lilith as this will certainly show women being far more militant than they have been in the past and I think this will be more apparent in the middle east. It has to represent some form of feminist uprising. Women have been far more active in the recent civil protests in Egypt and Libya.

Islamic Feminism states that for true liberation of these Arab states, women must also be free from oppression. Much headway has been made by the Muslim nations in this regard in the last 20 years. But it would be wrong to think women in the West are so far ahead with their brand of feminism. In someways I think we have gone backwards. In 2016 Uranus forms a conjunct with Eris. The potential here is great for breakthrough thinking and enlightenment regarding equality of the sexes, enslavement and whether we bow down to God/Authority. Are we going to live in a fools paradise, or exile ourselves like Lilith?

 REVOLUTION

Ekhart Tolle in his book The Power of Now, maintains that enlightenment for the whole of humanity is in the hands of women. On Page 194 he talks about the collective pain-body where women need to stop identifying themselves as victims, move on from blame and take control. This is the story of “The Fall” really. In biting Liliths apple, Eve reclaimed her sovereignty and also that of Adams. It’s interesting that it is always the female who rebels, like Pandora and her box. Integral to the emancipation of women in the Islamic world is how the Qu’ran is translated. How on earth can society move forward while their “Bible” condones the beating of women. This is the impression we have been given. But if you actually read it, it goes like this:

The official Arabic translation of Surah 4:34, “Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).” [2]

It’s not SO barbaric. You get a chance to repent at least. A telling-off and having to forsake a shag first. Only then you get some light beating. For some couples this is foreplay… In classic Arabic, “Beat” and “Go away” are the same word. Islamic feminists translate this paragraph differently, replacing “Beat” with “Go away”. Meaning one should leave the wife. Feminists also state that there is nothing in the Qur’an that mentions the strict wearing of the burqa or veil. It just mentions that women AND men should dress modestly. It looks like the Qu’ran is no different from the Bible. Both have been warped and been used to manipulate.

THE INTERNET

Sexual Astrology

Uranus with Pluto can be sexual revolution. But it could also be cyber sex and internet porn. How many men have become addicted to this erotic junk food? Like plastic milkshake it’s OK in very small doses. But how many women feel they have to behave like porn stars? That they are prudes if they don’t dig anal sex. And it has now reached the stage that a furry “cat” is consider abnormal. I find it ironic that while our Muslim sisters are encouraged to cover up,  western  women are stripping off to painful extremes in an effort to please their men.

While a Muslim womans chains are the burqa, Western women are chained to the obsession with being “hot”. This means watching what we eat and being gym slaves to the treadmill.  We have burnt our bras and no longer have to wear constricting corsets that made our Victorian great-grandmas faint. Instead we  are corseted by the vision of a size six skeleton on a magazine cover. You could argue that the burqa is almost liberating, at least we could indulge and not worry about our guts hanging out. I am playing devils advocate here. No question it’s great to be fit, love your body and walk around in summer shorts without being spat on. But I do think the West has gone way over the top with narcissism and objectifying womens bodies.

You can understand why a Muslim father may not want the Western brand of feminism for his daughter. It’s not a great example is it? I cringe when I see the overtly sexual music videos on MTV and wonder how this will effect my seven year old daughter. Will Katie Perry make her feel empowered? Well it could do if you look that good. But what if you are spotty, fat or have no boobs? Some stats from the Object website which challenges “Sex object culture” [3]:

  • Over half (54%) of all women around the world say they first became aware of the need to be physically attractive between 6 and 17 years of age.
  • Eating disorders are as common amongst women as autism.
  • 66% of teenage girls would consider plastic surgery and 20% would do it right now.
  • Polls suggest that 63% of young women aspire to be glamour models or lap dancers.
  • One in three people believe a woman is responsible for violence committed against her if she is wearing ‘revealing clothing’.

From a feminist point of view Western women are liberated (stripped of their clothing) and Muslims are oppressed ( smothered by their clothing).

I would like to compare two forms of imprisonment. The woman in the Burqa and this one of Paris Hilton that I objected to so strongly when Jamie Partridge did a post about her chart. Google ads have made me take off the picture of her as it is deemed lewd! Here we have the subliminal suggestion of bondage with the chains around her neck. What is this image saying to us? Is she chained to her desires? Does she feel empowered there on that table on her knees? Is this sexy and if it is why? It suggests executive desk-toy to me. I find it really disturbing. Like there are a gang of businessmen encircling her as if she is a wild animal about to be poached and then made to submit. Then we have the Burqa. In this society I can utterly see why some women would choose to wear them. In contrast to Paris looking extremely exposed, these offer protection. The one above looks like armour.  Sometimes it’s nice to be invisible and not have to put up with jeering workmen.

Islamic feminists want the right to work and have control of their own finances. Once you have that you really can tell an abusive husband to pack his bags. At the same time, women in the West also need to fight for the right NOT to work.  A lot of the time women are being forced to work because one income is no longer enough to support the modern family. In reality women do tend to pick up most of the domestic duties so do end up doing two full time jobs for half the money, with all the stress that goes with it. How liberated is that? It would then make being a “kept woman” look quite appealing.

  1. Forgive me for offering my opposing view?

    It’s certainly a very interesting post. However it reminds me of a post I saw about a rather complicated set of html for a very simple widget!

    It’s inevitable that repressed countries, women, and all life will eventually lash out & fight. It’s also inevitable that misery and sadness will come when people misinterpret the (fixed universal rules of the) world they live in, and misinterpret a statement that women are subordinate, when the One’s world shows all women are equal.

    People are the ones who account for the causes and effects that the planets cannot, except as symbols that convey the workings, not the influences, of the world. The world is an imbalanced place because of a blindness to the obvious observation that the lions heart must be stand between mercy and severity, for the world and it’s people to be at peace.

    The One did not bless us with the Aries brain to be blind to the rules of the world It created. It’s like trying to blame the One for tripping over a log, because we we’re too busy looking up at the sky!

    • I’m not sure I understand. Are you saying I am blaming God for women being oppressed? Well I’m not doing that.
      I’m blaming mankind for using religion as a weapon to control and subordinate is what I am doing. In the West we have the Mass media instead. As John Lennon once said “The Beatles are more popular than God”

      I’m really not very good at boiling things down to a widget. Jupiter quincunx Mercury. ;)

    • Personally I wouldn’t assume to know the mind of God. As for the Aries brain…???
      WHat exactly is that?

    • Is Aries not related to the head and face, sight and seeing? As above, so below, some say that man is a mini version of God, so God’s brain might be closer that you think! :)

    • Have to agree with you there. Only an Aries can give benediction to the head in full appreciation. It reminds me of Noel Tyler? where is my book come to think of it. He had a most illuminating description of Aries initations.

    • Aries is the sign of initiation and action with a downside of over inflation and self importance so I hope God has more than just an Aries brain or all we will have is competition and mania…
      SOme do indeed say man is a mini version of God. But if man were complete why would he discuss God in terms of “the Aries Brain” ?? If man were god why would he discuss God at all?

    • “Is Aries not related to the head and face, sight and seeing? ”

      Since the head and face are covered in skin you could say Virgo was just as significant.

  2. I’m not saying you are blaming God. I am saying that your very detailed post suggests that planets are influencing woman’s uprising against ignorance when (God’s) simple (un-bloated), fixed law of complementary opposites shows that repression breeds liberation.

    I disagree that religion in responsible, it’s ignorance and misinterpretation of the operations of nature. (I agree with you that this is used as a weapon to control). The One’s world shows all women are equal but men have come up with a very different interpretation! If we all look around us, we would all know this and those who seek to dominate would lose control.

    I believe that ignorance is exacerbated by looking at the planets (in a predictive sense) for information, rather than looking at the world to see God’s face and why things are happening as they are. When we all look at whats going on in front of us, rather than looking to the sky, all ignorance (including ignorance of the operations of nature/God) would be obliterated.

    It ain’t God, it’s man’s (deliberate?) failure to see God reflected in the fixed laws of nature.

    • Ah well, chacun a son gout!…

      There are many schools of thought which believe we are here to learn and transcend our nature. Some of us use the planetary bodies to help us on our way. We do actually reside on a planetary body and we actually LIVE IN THE SKY – so when we look up, we are looking around. Like looking at road signs.

      “I believe that ignorance is exacerbated by looking at the planets (in a predictive sense) for information, rather than looking at the world to see God’s face and why things are happening as they are.

      Yes, its all the face of God – including the looking to the planets, there is no duality. All the face of the creator knowing itself.

    • I agree, and yet, I know that I ought to remind myself more often to put down the charts and engage in the world of people around me – my Gemini North Node perhaps, but does it really matter? I went to a workshop a couple years ago where the presenter required us to do just that. We found that we could learn a great deal about each other from intuition alone. By using this knowledge which has been trained out of us, we learned things we thought we all needed astrological charts to provide. I’m not giving up my charts, because it’s fun and powerful and insightful, but it is good to remind ourselves that it is simpler than we often think.

    • North Node in Gemini in 12th. Guilty as charged!

    • I think many of us know that about astrology but almost every astrology person I know is absolutely enchanted by it’s relection of our natures and actions and happenings.

      Even transcending beyond belief I am still awed. But isn’t it the tree of knowledge? I wonder recently, am I on the wrong tree? I’m a monkey sign. Is this my lesson.
      “I think Eck and I have the same laugh.”

    • Jamie just did a chart for the last cigarette he smoked! THAT’S how bad it is ;)

      (But it was fascinating because the AC was on his Saturn Yod apex…bla bla.)

    • There’s more than one way to skin a cat!!

    • Looking at the planets gives me hints and reminders of things I might otherwise miss in my selfish nature. A head’s up. Helps see beyond some of the obstacles and validates. It’s not the best way of reaching out to someone but sometimes it’s the only way like when people approach with a bible in hand in concern. On the other hand, tossing the ball around about it all is kind of outdated once you know non duality you think? I mean my first reaction was “what happened to all the systems”? the belief systems, the any kind of systems. Not there anymore in infinity.
      What now?

    • yes, it certainly does give one something solid to point to when someone else is asserting their belief system extra strongly.

    • Oh I see how you took me. No I meant it just struck me how similiar it is to the concern of those who want to help you understand or talk to you in their language. I meant that’s the only way they know and this is the only way I know. I prefer not to butt heads as as a young woman in hippy company, casual, I could see expressing beliefs only esculated into violence too often…

    • I have no wish to start a debate. I was just stating my comment, inspired by the post. It was not an attack.

      I love astrology, it is very effective. It just that sometimes things are made a little complicated by it. Many of my Tarot sitter are people who depend on ‘cosmic forces’, when the cosmic force, in action, is in them!

      It seems that the planets are favored over real life engagement and it makes me sad to see it! Especially when it’s hinted that planetary movements are responsible for a peoples uprising and not the repressed circumstances they’ve been living with. It implies the same ignorance that the post investigates.

      I think Paul Kelly expressed what I was trying to say very well.

      Charyl, I think Astrology is great in that mode! I love Darkstar Astrology. I just felt to add a comment about one aspect of the post. Thanks for letting me express it :)

    • “Especially when it’s hinted that planetary movements are responsible for a peoples uprising and not the repressed circumstances they’ve been living with.”

      Well surely the planets are a trigger? It’s common knowledge that a Full Moon keeps ambulances busy and makes the psychiatric wards a lot more noisy. Mars or Uranus will aggravate an already inflammatory situation. That’s not the same as saying they caused it. Its obvious this has been brewing for a long time.
      A wife may be in an abusive relationship for years, but it might not be until her Sun gets a transit from Uranus that she suddenly gets the urge to break free. Predicting when she may leave her husband is what Astrology is all about, otherwise I wouldn’t be an Astrologer!

    • Something I havn’t shared yet is my experience and suspicions that as some yogi’s think, we are just the mouthpiece for some greater patterns. As the yogi said, I do not speak the thoughts, the thoughts come through me and I observe them, that’s all. My skeptical Leo ex once picked up a daily rag on the skytrain and he said it said almost word for word what I had said to him. I replied, NO, let me see. It did. Between that and the other experience in the 70’s of feeling like an amebia while each and every word fell like raindrops around me. Also when I first came down from the far North I never took credit for things – but other influenced rubbed off. . .
      I don’t know how that would work on a mass influenced movement. But that’s what we need to keep open about is inquiry. Puzzlement.

    • The cosmic force can only be effective when the cosmos supports it. Chances are when people go for tarot readings the cosmic force has sent them there for a gentle reminder.
      Personally I have always found that the planets exactly reflect my “real life engagement” and it helps to know this.
      e.g I have had Neptune in opposition to six planets for some time now and the transit is not over for years to come. In this time I have deepened my spiritual practice but felt my physical energy erode as Neptune opposed my Sun MArs PLuto conjunction.
      WOuld there have been any use in beating myself up for not being able to engage that dynamic physical energy the way I used to? No. Using Neptune I changed the pattern, became more intuitive and often lie around staring at the sky for no reason.
      This too is REAL ENGAGEMENT.

    • Sometimes it seems that no one else understands an opposition as a necessity to look within and attempt to grow in awareness of the truth found at the center of the polarities. The spark flowing from pole to pole. Especially now as it’s saturn.

  3. Intuition is one thing, astrology is another. If I had used my astrology more, instead of always following my intuition (6 planets in Leo, twelfth house) I might not have got into some of the scrapes I did! Intuition in not always right – it can be very very wrong at times! especially under a Neptune transit.

    Post a Reply
    • I guess it all depends on how accurate an interpretation one can make. With a twelfth house Mercury…well, it has been a challenge.

    • I guess the point I was trying to make is that it is important to practice developing our intuition – as well as our analytical skills, since the former is seldom focused on openly. In a workshop type setting, we can check on the accuracy of our intuition without involving risks that come from using it to make major life decisions. This helps us learn how to use it. If we never avail ourselves of these opportunities, we’ll never get past the beginning stages. Good point, though. Everyone has their own path.

    Yes of course triggers! Insight yes! Relinquishing control of life and withstanding abuse until a certain, planetary transit or prediction, no!

    If your suggesting that someone stay in an abusive relationship because the planets aren’t giving the kick to leave, instead of saying to her, “goodness girl, get yourself outta there” I am most disturbed!

    The planets affect/trigger subconscious, instinctive, behavior. Man’s conscious, reasoning mind is strongest and controls the subconscious. Predictive astrology contributes to subconscious behavior. If I believed I was going to have the planetary backup to leave an abusive relationship, it would be the suggestion not the transit. However I would never let myself or anybody else get in, or stay in, that kind of situation. Planets or not.

    Planetary triggers may account for an uprising yes, but I also suggest that physical triggers/cause and effects, consciously and deliberately applied by people to repress others, make up the greater and most important part of any new revolution.

    • Dea: In Marina’s defence you do come on a little strong. If you’ve been on the site a little while you would know Marina’s nature at heart would never have any woman experience abuse. It’s one line blown out of proportion. Some people would say it’s not Marina’s responsibility to tell the woman what to do. She can however, share her knowledge of the planets like we’re doing here. I have a daughter in law with sun/Uranus conjunct. It’s been wonderful surprises of a skilled player so far but often I wonder when she’ll bolt. Hopefully our own playing will keep it interesting for her. Disney had sun/Uranus conjunct. I think that coming on a blog is rather like coming into someone’s home and being hosted.

    • WHy not wait until THE TIME IS RIGHT – this is the trigger point or transit Marina talks about. When the time is right you have help on your side.
      Have you not noticed how some people wal out of say, an abusive relationship, only to walk into another and repeat the pattern? Alas the period of “abuse” may be karmic, have lessons attached etc etc. In this life, timing is critical. One can seize the right time or spend years wasting energy until the right time arrives.

      Man’s conscious reasoning mind” is often not very well developed. Hence it so often makes bad judgement. YOu would only believe yo have a planetary advantage if there actualy was one.

      What do you think creates the physical triggers for revolution? Ultimately it is a collaboration of planetary influence in a framework of time.

      Can you otherwise explain why the middle east is suddenly erupting? There are massive celestial significators which are taking effect in this time. The people in the middle east are now supported by forces to make their uprising effective.

  5. Dea Animi“If your suggesting that someone stay in an abusive relationship because the planets aren’t giving the kick to leave, instead of saying to her, “goodness girl, get yourself outta there” I am most disturbed!”

    Of COURSE I’m not suggesting that. That’s just MAD!!? Or maybe I’m not explaining myself very well tonight. I meant if I had the friend of the abused girl asking me why doesn’t she leave her abusive husband even though she had been encouraging her to do so, I might say, it’s most likely to happened when Uranus is conjunct her Sun or something like that. Would NOT advise her to tell her friend to wait until Uranus is conjunct her Sun!

    I don’t understand the misunderstandings. You read Tarot, I read the Planets. This is an Astrology blog. We discuss world events in the context of the planetary weather.
    Nothing in the world happens in a vacuum. Meaningful coincidences, synchronicity and all that…;)

    • The planets represent energies that are active within us and within our societies and within the environment. We read the charts like maps of energy. If the energy is not available at the moment and at that place, empirical analysis will likely show that the act does not take place. People go along with energies more than they act on free will. The subconscious behavior patterns we establish to cope with the vast amounts of information we take in every day are stronger than the desire to act consciously, though we are continually developing that capacity. Things work out when the time is right.

    • MArina, you explain yourself very well at all times. There’s an obstinate refusal somewhere of others to accept your explanations!

      Lets move on now… !!
