2nd September, in the UK, four men have been arrested in connection with the London riots. In the blog post about the riots on Monday I mentioned Rick Tarnas (and Matthew Stelzner) talked on the Correlations podcast, (From about 15 minutes in, until about the 30 minute mark) about Uranus-Pluto reflecting the empowerment of youth, but also later suggest that there are "two narratives" - the first being the "movement towards freedom and progress...towards democracy, a kind of democratising Promethean emancipation" but the other is "the narrative of chaos". He describes these as the 'two sides' (have a listen).
I've been thinking for the last few days about this, partly because of something my husband posted on Facebook during a prolonged rant: "
I found the imagery really interesting. Lots of 1960s images, and the extensive use of clips from the film 'V for Vendetta'. The Matrix was also featured. two of my all-time favourite films.
As soon as I saw V for Vendetta I was very taken with the Uranus-Pluto association and went off to check how close the two planets were then. There was a 15 orb on 16 March 2006 when the film was released. That seemed far too wide to me for a correlation. Interestingly though, Saturn was exactly at the midpoint of Uranus-Pluto in that chart.
