Benjamin Netanyahu and the imbalance of power

Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice.” — Spinoza

The deeper we go into astrology, the more the petals of the Rose unfold. This week I have investigated the deeper meaning of Netanyahu’s earthly mission as depicted in the sabian symbols.

FROM: https://sabiansymbols.com/

“The Sabian Symbols are a set of 360 phrases that correspond to the wheel of the zodiac. Each one of these symbols holds a story and unique energy field of their own, to further help to understand your path in life. Discovered in 1925 by noted American astrologer Marc Edmund Jones and gifted spiritualist medium and clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler, the symbols bring to light issues that aren’t shown through other methods of chart reading.

In astrology the earth is a planet, tho not often used by astrologers. This is a shame and a pity.

The earth in my work helps to reveal what we came here to do while we are on the planet. I’ll let you look up for yourself the mechanisms for using the sabian symbols. Here I am cutting to the chase. This is his Sabian symbol for his earthly mission;


KEYNOTE: The necessity for mature preparation and self-criticism.

We see here the tangible results of the situation evoked by the two preceding symbols. Great hopes, excited expectations cannot be sustained. The last symbol reveals the performer’s state of consciousness; in this one he is actually made fully aware of having promised — to the many elements of his own personality as well as perhaps to other human beings — more than he was able to deliver. The issue is how to handle this situation. In one form or another, it is an often recurring situation in the life of an individual person. The manner in which it is met determines the individual’s future possibilities of development and achievement.

What is implied here is the need to be more subjectively involved in the use of the new powers. The objective results have to be considered, i.e. what this use will do. The individual is not alone concerned, for in a sense mankind as a whole will be affected. What is required, therefore, is an objective inclusiveness of the whole environment; thus a sense of RESPONSIBILITY for what one’s actions will produce in people who have been made to expect significant results.

Further, power in a democratic state like Israel is only as good as the previous election. Netanyahu seems to think that this incursion in the Gaza Strip grants him immunity from prosecution, however brief. There’s a terrible toll on both sides of course, and if he has a plan for what to do after the invasion of Gaza — after the dust and the bodies have settled, he has yet to reveal it. At some point the fog of war will lift, and he will be held accountable. As of this writing, both Hezbollah, to the east, and the Houthi’s, from the south in Yemen, are firing rockets into Israel. Thus new fronts are beginning to open up in this war, further dividing and diluting Israel’s defense capabilities.

Currently in the skies, the old Devil Saturn, has backed up into 0° of Pisces. In the middle of November he will begin his bloody trek of hardship forward into the balance of the sign of Pisces. May 24, 2025 Saturn enters the sign of Aries. There he will join Neptune in Aries. As I mentioned in my previous essays slow moving Neptune in Aries signifies war for the collective state of the human psyche. The previous time he was in Aries was the American Civil War in the 1860s. The Combination of Saturn and Neptune in Aries by whole house conjunction heralds the outbreak of war on a global scale if nothing is done to prevent it; nothing is inevitable until after it happens.

Many astrologers have concluded that Saturn in Pisces is a hallmark of the Jews.

FROM: https://katz.sas.upenn.edu/resources/blog/saturn-and-jewsUnderlying the well-known link between Saturday (Shabbat in Hebrew) and Saturn (Shabbetai in Hebrew) is the reference to Saturn as the planet in charge of the Jews. Behind the link between Saturn and Saturday is the astrological theory that assigns the seven planets in succession, beginning with the sun and following the order of their orbs, to the 24 hours of the day and to the seven days of the week.

Prominent Roman historians such as Tacitus (56–120 CE) and Cassius Dio (ca. 155–after 229), as well as Church fathers like Augustine (354–430), acknowledged a special link between Saturn and Saturday, the holiest day of the week for the Jews. That Jewish society of the talmudic period recognized the same association is shown by the fact that the Babylonian Talmud (Shabbat 156a) refers to Saturn as Shabbetai, i.e., the star of Shabbat (Saturday). Greek and Arab astrology, however, considered Saturn to be the most malignant of the seven planets; and thus the Jews, astrologically governed by Saturn, were considered to be contaminated by the planet’s wicked nature.

This last above sentence is not my interpretation. The Jews have been the people who collectively have suffered in tragic defeats and a great degree of horrid victimization. The tragedy is that the Israelis are victors who feel like victims.

Well-known astrologer Adam Elenbaas pointed out in one of his online lectures that Saturn in Pisces, must learn from failure. If nothing is done to reduce Israel’s military might, an ever more sophisticated and effective war machine, then the hounds of hell will be released.

Nothing is inevitable until after it happens. When we, the chattering class, sit back and cluck at the terrible carnage of war in the Middle East, well you know how it goes. As a species we have never had more power, and never have we had less wisdom as to how to use it. For those who paint the universe on the inside of their brains, and not their hearts, the deaths of women and children are just numbers. That is — until it is your family. Robert MacNimara the American architect of the war in Vietnam only wanted body counts.

The Pluto Power-For-Power’s-Sake Generations: Pluto in Scorpio and Sagittarius

A generation’s dreams, aspirations, and nightmares are defined by the outer planets in astrology. These are Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Here I am focusing on Pluto; the planet that symbolizes the primal and primordial forces of death and rebirth. And while we generally love the concept of rebirth, few of us like the idea of death that precedes it.

This is not my favorite moment in this essay. I can scarcely believe that I have to say — no this is not about you as an individual. This is not about you as an individual, Okay this hideous little repetition is over and I am moving on to what I meant to say.

The Pluto in Scorpio generation are born between 1985 and 1995.

This generation revels in thug rap, control over others for its own sake, the worship of weapons, and collective death. People with Pluto in Scorpio often have very strong intuition, are extremely passionate, and can come off as dark and mysterious. Of course there are many gifted individuals in this generation whose only wish is to bring healing, regeneration, and life out of death. Sadly for all of us they do most of their good work in silence because good work has almost always been done in silence.

The Pluto in Sagittarius generation are born between 1995 and 2008.

This generation collectively yearns for freedom, the glory and the uniform of the soldier, action for its own sake, questioning everything including democracy. A soldier’s main duty is to break things and kill people. A law unto themselves; Pluto amplifies Sagittarius’s need for freedom to explore places, people, and perspectives. This generation is seeking their own truth about the world and not conforming to established beliefs.

So what happens from a generational perspective when the Pluto in Scorpio generation gets to control the younger Pluto in Sagittarius generation? Collectively, our world is now confronted with visceral emotions, war and death brought to us by both sides of any conflict. What does this accomplish? Ashes. Some just want to see the world burn.

As you may perceive, this essay is about choosing the leaders who will actually lead us away from collective violence. That is not Benjamin Netanyahu. It is not the intellectual extreme right wing philosophers who deserve our attention. They are simply tired of democracy, and even more tired of the idea that the good of the many outweighs the good of the few. Many of us see the insanity of concepts like — the poor have too much money, while the rich do not have enough, empowering women is the problem, etc. — and we will never forgive you for the mess you have made of our only world.
