I would like to start a new thread where any interesting analysis/report/thought by an astrologer can be added. I don't know anything about astrology, but am interested in reading about this subject.
Clow’s July 2010 New Moon/Solar Eclipse Report
“It is the New Moon in Cancer, when we find ourselves wanting to nurture, protect, and enjoy our personal lives and our planet. This New Moon brings in a new seed, the fruition of the creative potential that arrived when the Sun moved into Cancer during the Summer Solstice.
In the reading for the Summer Solstice, we saw that this summer is when a new transcendent field arrives in our world. Many of you have been experiencing a powerful new level of will power that is possibly becoming available with the Solstice Grand Square, a real sense that you can make things happen. Enhanced will power is a sign that spirits are really assisting us now, even if you can’t detect this presence. This New Moon offers guidance for how we can actually use this potent creativity.
During the Summer Solstice, Uranus in Aries exactly squared the Solstice Sun, which indicated great surprises would happen right after the Solstice. I begin with describing these startling changes, because they indicate what’s passing out of the scene to make space for new forms and potentialities. We want to really nail how the change factor is functioning, because Uranus went retrograde on July 5 and will go back into Pisces in August. Thus, the change factor is going more into the psyche until early December, when Uranus goes direct at 27 Pisces. Major squares from Uranus always trigger events, so on June 22 (a few hours after the Sun exactly squared Uranus) President Obama got a big surprise. He woke up to the Rolling Stones article about Afghan commander Stanley McChrystal and the general’s thoughts about the war.
The following day (when the Sun squared Jupiter in Aries), McChrystal was fired, and David Petraeus took over the war. This came on the heels of the firing of the Canadian commander of the Southern Offensive in Afghanistan, Brigadier General Daniel Menard, for having an affair with one of his soldiers. Menard is a key expert on Afghani tribal politics, and many believe the Kandahar campaign will fail without his direction. Therefore, based on the removal of McChrystal right after the Summer Solstice, we can see that that the war in Afghanistan is passing out now. Of course, McChrystal’s demise was probably staged to get Petraeus in, since his cleanup job in Iraq is finished. Petraeus seems to be the man called in at the end.
Meanwhile, the Pope has been the biggest beneficiary of the news blackout caused by the ongoing oil volcano in the Gulf. The Summer Solstice Grand Square briefly returned the spotlight to Rome. On June 24, Belgium police raided Catholic institutions to seize the files on sex abuse cases. The police even disturbed a cardinal’s tomb looking for hidden records! This raid could expose the systemic nature of the sexual scandals leading right into the central command post, the Vatican. In a June 29, 2010, New York Times article, Doreen Carvajal noted that Belgium prosecutors may expand their scope to “encompass those who knew children were in peril but failed to protect them.” Concurrently, the Vatican issued a short memo on its internal business that is “proof of a battle inside the Vatican walls that mirrors the anger over sexual abuse raging outside them”. (Rachel Donadio, NYT, June 29, 2010) For fifteen hundred years, the Vatican has held its power by using oppressive secrecy; this great wall is cracking and getting ready to fall down. We can add the tottering Vatican to the failing war in Afghanistan on our list......"
