Pluto in Capricorn.
The reactionary conservatism that followed the social justice and sexual revolutions of the 1960's and 70's, which was so dramatically manifested in the regime of Ronald Reagan (with the help of Pope John Paul II), has re-emerged with the progress of Pluto into Capricorn.
The influence of this astrological aspect is surprising in itself because astrology is generally thought of as a left-wing/New Age phenomenon. This reveals just how desperate the conservative forces have become.
They think that this aspect will bring with it all the benefits and victories that they saw in the 1980's.
This is in no way certain.
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 harmonious sextile of the 1980's. And the progress of Neptune into Pisces does not augur as badly as the the previous position in Capricorn.
We will see the rebellious aspect of Uranus actively challenging the power of the conservatives - aspecting as it does the Sagittarius/Aquarius youth (born 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 of the 1990's comes into play.
This is already being seen with the support for gay marriage in the popular culture. Despite the fact that some are among those who practice Satanism, the face value left/gay mask reveals grassroots support for those forces - left-wing/gay - which will challenge the conservative push.
This 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 outcome and this will sabotage and poison the Aquarian Age if we do not find something positive to replace them.
We can pray for them to move forwards instead of backwards. This will require a change of heart and a commitment to the absolute truth and forgiveness of God.
If we can get the social awareness of Satanism to a sufficient level then we can call an amnesty and a Truth and Forgiveness Commission such as Nelson Mandela called in South Africa.
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 itself could be an indicator - a sign of the times - that shows the mass of people supporting the new ideas and the new religious paradigm - Progressive Christianity - which must be developed in order to make a safe place for gay and lesbian people and reformed Satanists in the Church.
If we can convince the rebellious Satanic forces that sex, and especially gay sex, is O.K. with God then the chances of a turn around are increased dramatically.
