The reactionary conservatism that followed upon the 1960s and 1970s social justice and sexual revolution has re-emerged once again with the progress of Pluto into Capricorn.
This astrological aspect is surprising in itself as astrology is generally thought of as a left-wing/Aquarian phenomenon. It reveals just how desperate the conservative forces have become.
They seem to think that this aspect will bring with it all the victories and benefits that they saw in the 1980s.
This is in no way certain, however. For one thing they don't have the White House or the Lodge, despite the constant efforts of their media outlets.
For another the progress of Uranus into Aries forms a square (tense) aspect to Pluto unlike the sextile (harmonious) of the 1980s. And the progress of Neptune into Pieces does not augur as badly as the Scorpio/Capricorn aspects of the previous position.
We will see the rebellious aspects of Uranus actively challenging the power of the conservatives and plutocrats. Aspecting as it does the Sagittarius/Aquarius youth (1996-2008).
Even though we have seen the last of the great conjunctions - Jupiter/Neptune in Aquarius and Jupiter/Uranus in Pisces/Aries - the Neptune/Uranus conjunction in Capricorn of the 1990s comes into play.
This is already being seen in the active support of celebrities for the gay and lesbian marriage rights campaign. This reveals grass roots opposition to the conservative forces which can only increase as time goes on.
We need something, however, that is not controlled by the Satanic forces in the music industry and elsewhere if we are to succeed. The negative forces work towards a negative result and this will sabotage and poison the Aquarian Age if we do not find something positive to replace it.
We can pray for them to see their error and begin to move forwards instead of backwards. This will require a change of heart and commitment to the truth and forgiveness which leads to reconciliation with God.
If we can get social awareness of Satanism in the entertainment industries to a sufficient level then we can call an amnesty and a Truth and Reconciliation Commission like that in South Africa.
And from there modern music and culture could move forwards and contribute positively to the social revolution that will lead to the Age of Aquarius.
Alternatively the fortunes of the gay civil rights movement could be an indicator - a sign of the times - that shows the mass of people supporting new ideas and the new religious paradigm = Progressive Christianity (another indicator) which must be developed in order to make a safe place for gay and left-wing people and also reformed Satanists in the Church.
If we can convince the rebellious Satanists that sex, and especially gay sex, is O.K. with God then the chances of a turn around are increased dramatically.
