Saturn Pluto Strikes Again

New Yorker magazine September 24 2001Wow talk about united world vibing.

First the pomp of the royal wedding – now the death of Osama.

Both events have major Saturn-Pluto resonance.

Share your memories of September 11 here (that was a Saturn Pluto opposition, if you’re interested) AND you may want to look at how Saturn and Pluto are aspected in YOUR chart, because they’re sure as hell being activated at the mo.

And i don’t care what this says about me politically, i am glad the dude is gone. I will never forget the thought of all those unaccompanied children flying on that day, the firemen, that falling man…etc

I think I have to tell the story of where I woke up in NYC and with whom and the events that followed September 11th -aka a million light years away- in my life but not here and not now. But I had no idea it was a Saturn Square Pluto moment. Yup, makes complete sense now. Total shift in values and perspective – ready or not.
And we are never ready.
Shift happens.

Don’t trust any politicians and their motives any further than I can throw them. That’s all I’m gonna say about that except that in my twenties I sat reading the news one day and gathered that the billionaire congressmen sat in their ivory towers while others went hungry….That was all a very long time ago and nothing seems to have changed. I was so angry at ‘those billionaries’ back then that I got tears in my eyes. Still, not saying that everything is or is not a conspiricy because I simply don’t know what is up or down regarding that.… Read more »

I live about 50 minutes south of NYC, in what might be called stockbroker-belt, the town i work in lost 41 men/husbands/fathers that day, their cars all sitting unclaimed in the rail station that night, here on the coast the smoke for days blew south towards us, it smelled like nothing we’d ever smelled before, the smell of death, and for all we knew, the end of civilization. So I suppose there is some kind of vengeance or clarity in his death. But I absolutely dislike the party atmosphere and gloating and noise and nonstop media coverage we’ve had all… Read more »

I was only about 12 yrs old and living in England at the time (I’m American, just a military kid). I walked into the living room and saw both towers up in smoke. At first I didn’t even know what it was or what was going on, but it was still a heart-stopping moment. After that it was heavy around school (went to school on an Airforce base) and we had an assembly. A girl a few seats down from me couldn’t stop crying, and an elderly man was asleep. These are the things I remember! Tragic and I still… Read more »

I was on the East Coast only a couple of hours away from N.Y. at work, computer turned on, at first they said a small plane had flown into the tower and I wondered what? small plane? they even had a faraway pic of this “small’ plane. Then the bad news came, and kept coming. Co-workers had set up a tv in the conference room and everybody was listening to it and when I heard that another plane had hit the pentagon I told everyone I was leaving. I drove home, people on the roads were courteous, they drove slowly,… Read more »

I am very worried and very, very saddened by comments like “Justice has been done” and “Osama Bin Laden has paid the price for declaring war on innocent people”. Justice has been done to one man, but at what price? Uncounted innocent people died, and will continue to die, because -of course- there are now new excuses to keep the troops where they are, and because -of course- Al Qaeda is surely organised enough not to rely on the world’s most wanted man. So the war on terrorism will continue while our politicians have a good excuse not to address… Read more »

Is anyone bothered that there are no death photos?

Just raises many questions for me. Dead is dead – publicly boasting and celebrating killing him but refusing to produce hard fast evidence of his death is more likely to enhance the Bin Laden’s mythological standing. Is he really dead? Is he dead but his body torn to horrific… Read more »

The personal IS political. What is politics if it is too distant from what matters personally? An idea? Or a concept? While it is in fact sad that any death should be celebrated simply for the fact that as a race we honor life, it would be unreal to not be relieved that the source of suffering and turmoil to so many has disappeared. Do OBL’s constituents feel the same way about our American government? Of course. Even worse they loathe the Western culture, unequivocally.

“The people in the twin towers were sacrificed on the altar of war business, as the people of Afghanistan and Iraq continue to be.”

The Twin Towers were a symbol of money and power.
I have stood on the observatory deck of the Tower and it was extremely tall building and swayed. I cannot fathom it going down that day and being in it. It is horrifying. The images on TV are still horrifying and burned into my memory.
The war needs to end and both sides everyone needs to stop this war game.

I can understand your reaction to this.

This other worldly power often isn’t afforded to those who die of old age, especially if they die incarcerated in jail. And I am of the firm belief that there is an abundance of evidence to justify OBL remaining in jail.

I do not want to think about that day. If you really need to read someone’s story about that day, I highly recommend “When War Drums Roll” by Hunter S. Thompson. I think it’s one of the best things he ever wrote. http://espn.go.com/page2/s/thompson/010918.html But I will tell you a story. One day in late 2006, I was looking through a pile of accumulated business cards, to see if I should file or discard any of them. I found one card from my buddhist mentor. I hadn’t seen him in ages, he was constantly flying all over the country to meet… Read more »

Hmmm.
I wonder how this will play out with the political changes going on in the Arab world at present?
I’m glad for Obama that he can claim some progress in that shit fight.

We heard the news of 9/11 at 7.45am when we turned on the morning news. Then we turned on the TV news. Appalling, unbelievable scenes. And I just had this horrible feeling that things would never be the same after this act of destruction. And what has it sparked off? Not only the death of 3,000 people in New York but tens of thousands more deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention other deaths due to random bombings throughout the world. Violence begets violence and hopefully this may herald the start of an end to the hatred and retribution… Read more »

I was in school watching it on TV with an entire class. I’m glad the fucker is gone because everything he touched turns to blood/death/tears. Whether it was innocents in New York or the poor people in East Africa he basically tricked. But do I believe this is the end of terrorism? No. As long as the world order stays the same, there will always be terrorists. Sad truth that usually offends many. *shrugs*

I was in a bar – real classy, i know – with some people i had been out to dinner with and we wanted to kick on. Kept looking at the tv in the corner, thinking ‘wot’s that shit on the television’ and then a bit later ‘why is everyone watching it?’ I thought it was a Diehard movie. Then the publican turned it up and we all stood around watching it, i thought we were going to be at war that night, like ww3. And realizing there were people on those planes, the worst. Rot in hell Osama and… Read more »

😯 It is amazing they finally got him! I will never forget watching those towers come crashing down and the eerie feeling that followed. As Barack said in his address to the nation ‘ObL was a mass murderer’ and truly that says it all really. I don’t believe this was ever suppose to be about Islam and I’m glad Barack reaffirmed that today. My memory of 9/11 was being glued to the television the whole day. The following day I went to university where it was discussed in all of my classes, one particular class discussion was when a woman… Read more »

I hear you. I was in the middle of a fundraising event for a show I was opening two weeks later. The show was about world politics and how it changes the heart and marks itself in the memory of a love affair. There was a big section about “America coming undone”. I got home after midnight and sat up all night watching it unfold, sorta frozen I guess. When in the morning I snapped out of the stupor I realised – oh my, my show has to completely change! And I rewrote it in a day. And even from… Read more »

I’m glad he’s gone too, but I’m also so, so weary of all of this and nervous about what might happen next. But no use worrying about what I can’t control, right? And it’s been interesting to see reactions from around the world (I’m in the USA).

Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Scorpio, in the 8th. Bleh.

So glad to hear the wary thoughts of other Scorps regarding Osama. Facebook is full of all these celebratory messages and tacky images of the Statue of Liberty holding his bloodied severed head. I think it’s a bit too soon to be all “woohoo USA, we won!” I’m glad that he’s gone, but anyone who’s studied Middle East terrorism knows that his network of terrorist cells is still vast and wide spread around the world, and if there were revenge attacks or bombings that happen because of his death, I won’t be the least surprised. On 9/11 I was getting… Read more »

2001 woke up to the news and stayed glued to the TV and the unfolding story for days. Was in Los Angeles. Flash forward to the present and I’m back in the same house watching it with the same people I did then. I’ve got Pluto in Virgo opposite Saturn in Pisces in my natal w/ Scorp Sun and Cap moon and asc. All I can say is that I’m stunned.
