Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against US Supreme Court judge nominee is heart-wrenching. I’ve just listened to it.
Here is the chart for the start of proceedings this morning in Washington DC.
It’s absolutely stuffed with symbolism. Here are just a few of the things that jump out.
• Venus in Scorpio is rising. In fact this Venus is stationing to turn retrograde. There she is recalling the deep past. In Scorpio, Venus is uncomfortable because she has to go somewhere dark, but she’s also a warrior, Inanna.
• This is an issue of women’s rights, quite simply. Don’t forget that if Brett Kavanaugh becomes a Supreme Court judge, he will seek to make abortion illegal again. So it’s interesting to note that Lilith, the Dark Moon, who one might associate with the mother’s power to take life as well as give it, is just passing through the US South Node. And then she’s also just coming out of a conjunction with Mars that’s trining the Sun in Libra, the sign of justice.
• Meanwhile, Saturn in Capricorn, which is very powerful is making a tough square to those Libra planets. This is the establishment digging in its heels.
• The Moon was applying to conjoin Uranus in Taurus. This is about change, and changing women’s role. As my colleague Coeli Carr has pointed out it’s about the voice, ruled by Taurus. And Taurus is also about learning to listen
The US is having a nodal return right now (NN at 6° Leo). Will this be a turning point? I am sure you can dig out even more from this chart. For example, what do you make of Vesta? Among other things, she is literally the one woman hired by the Republicans on the committee to question Ms Blasey Ford.
Those of you finding this brings back your own memories, know that this is part of a Venus Retrograde process. She will be squaring the Nodes — this is pivotal.
