Paris Inc

Filed in Mars

Thoughts and prayers with the people of Paris, obviously. What a revolting turn of events, even if not altogether unexpected.

At the same time, Aung San Suu Kyi’s won a landslide victory (on her Jupiter Return) and the Kurds + Coalition took Sinjar back from Daesh/ISIL. Which is where most of the recent atrocities have been occurring.

This is them celebrating. Presumably the Paris situation is not unrelated. It’s just vile. I don’t have any strong astrological thoughts on this, suffice to say that shiz is clearly escalating in the next month of Mars in aspect to Uranus/Pluto, just in time for the lengthy Mars in Scorpio jag of 2016.

BUT this post is more just here in case any of you peeps want to discuss/share.

I think it’s easy to hold anti-war, anti-conflict sentiment when the terrorist act in question didn’t land in your own back yard. Don’t get me wrong – I don’t believe that using aggression to resolve aggression works. Two wrongs don’t make a right and all that … However, I completely understand the anger and trauma felt by the French people and the wider community. From my experiences as a mental health worker I come across traumatised people all the time. In fact most of my clients have experienced trauma … albeit usually on a personal level, rather than a community… Read more »

Excuse my butting in here but Universali I needed to explain that I had no problem with your post above. I was responding to the other poster and when I read back over it maybe I missunderstood them too ? Please accept my apology. I always read your posts with interest and agree that very few things are as they seem. I was, like you, so upset by the events and my personal sting was that later this week one of my boys goes on his first trip OS for 2 months. I’ve not been away from him for more… Read more »

Grief and anger is natural and comes in many forms. I think searching for original causes as a way of dealing with that rage too. There is a feeling that if you can understand the machinations of events you can be part of stopping them somehow. So even though I agree that searching for the correct theory, conspiracy, is unhelpful in the end it can be part of some people’s processing. And it’s not for everyone but it should not be suppressed either, no?

No not surpressed. My main concern is that when doing this (searching for truths to find closure) people’s tendency is to mistake theory for fact. Which can lead to more hatred and vilification … as well as vigilante behaviour. People don’t realise how easy it is for their opinions to be shaped and manipulated by unconscious prejudices.

sphinx

If searching for truthful theories leads to vigilante behaviour then, where does that leave us? Anyway most conspiracy theories centre around the fact of the increasing centralising of power and money, the .05% of the planet and governments that aid their interests. I am thinking such groups would have funds to protect themselves from those possibly dangerous theorists. If we are worried about the way people come to conclusions I would think more logic, more transparent discussion and more guidance from sensible types might help. I find most vigilante behaviour is fed by the media anyway who make manipulating unconscious… Read more »

Sensationalism sells. Re: conspiracy theories? I have no problem at all with academic speculation because sometimes all is not as it seems.

Even President Hollande is calling it an attack by the Islamic State, an act of war. I would think he’s well-informed, he has people who know more than any of us.

Praying for only the monsters or their targets to be bombed in Syria by France tonight. I’m human and that’s how I feel. I can’t imagine a more brutal life than being an innocent living in Syria. Or being a foreign fighter who has just woken up to the mess they’ve made of their lives. Sadness all around.

I get what you’re saying, but the West will hardly stop bombing the Mid East now. Fighting fire with fire, escalation… Does ISIL (or any terrorist) really think that these tactics will bring peace & stability to the people? That’s as deluded as the West believing that their bombs will.

Whenever there’s a terrorist attack, be it domestic or abroad, inside a church/school/theater/etc or out on the street, organized with others or solo, it’s a total delusion-buster. The delusion that I’m free to go about my life without being touched by this kind of horror; the delusion that somehow I am not a player in this tragedy on the world stage. The delusion that i am not vulnerable. The delusion that these attacks somehow force me to live less authentically, less free, more encumbered/yoked. Because the truth is, once the initial wave of shock & horror thrashes & soaks me,… Read more »

Very sad for the people dealing with the sudden loss of loved ones in Beirut, Bagdad and Paris. My heart goes out to them tonight.

It’s yet another grim reminder of the devastating goals of all forms of militarism … all over the world, and throughout time. It’s a war on civilians like all wars fundamentally are…we can only hope that peace and good sense prevail in the long run …

yeah, this is the part I hate. it must be nice to sit around point the finger and blame, launch your political opinions and toss around clichés,as people are traumatized.

As someone who not only had lived in Paris, but as someone who survived the 9/11 attack, I know exactly how Paris feels right now. Trust me, political arguments, and “Paris is so pretty” clichés isn’t what they want or need right now.

They need solidarity and room for mourning, anger and sadness etc. Its not always about our opinion. Lives were lost, a city is traumatized.

Lovely graphic Mystic. Unbelievably sad when I read the news. all I could think was this is not the news of the Paris I love. I want Paris to be safe the way I remember.

Was thinking of the dark side of the Saturn Neptune square in the religious/spiritual signs. Might bring in mass shootings in churches and places of worship. This one was at a concert, and I’m thinking Neptune in Pisces, where people congregate to share in the experience.

I just ran the chart for November 13, 9:20 pm Paris time — a news site said that was about the time of the first explosion outside the stadium. The south node and Mars are very close to the IC at 29’42 Virgo, and the North node conjunct the Midheaven at 29 Pisces. Cancer, the sign of security, rising at 24 degrees.

Oops, sorry, North node and Mars in VIrgo on the IC, and south node at the top of the chart.

Regardless of causes and without ability to change things from where I am, the only things that help are to maintain love and forgiveness within the heart.

Tonight I meditated on crisis in a personal way and just apologised over and over again. I don’t know to whom or why. I just asked forgiveness and gave forgiveness to myself and others in every direction. For what I can’t tell. But I felt better after… The public and the personal are always entwined. Felt like I had lit a candle in the dark for a moment.

No child wakes up and says “I want to be a murderer.” These horrible acts in Paris come from people living day in, day out in a toxic stew of systemic poverty, ignorance, lack of opportunity, and religious extremism. The governments in the Middle East have a vested interest in maintaining an under-educated, under-employed, fearful population and of course the West just wants the oil. There’s a lot of practical work to be done before this dynamic is significantly changed. We ourselves can influence it in the way we vote, what we spend our hard-earned money on (how many products… Read more »

That’s a general statement- there’s a tremendous variety of philosophies held by government officials in various Middle Eastern countries.

Tripoli in Lebanon was attacked in the same way and at the same time as the Paris attacks. They have victims too. Brown lives matter, but not to the media.

Absolutely horrified – prayers of healing and comfort to all affected! I am utterly disgusted by this kind of perversion of “faith” – every nano-particle of Jupiter in me is completely adverse to the horrible things that people do when they mis-interpret/mis-apply “the word of (insert-your-Deity-of-choice-here)”. Faith is supposed to be a tool for lifting yourself and other UP, *NOT* for tearing others down by creating hell on earth!

exactly. like 9/11 when westerners and media were crapping on about 100 or so dead, but they ignore the hundreds of thousands killed in wars and uprisings every day throughout the middle east, africa and the third world.

davidl

Sorry to correct you there GY but over 3000 people died that day including 100s of emergency workers. Thousands more left with life long injuries. Personally I have no idea who perpertrated that horror but it was not a hundred. i agree that the media are always skewed to over exaggeration of westerner issues but 911 was a truly horrendous world event that probably will go down in history as a marker to the events we are now living through.

I never really understand this argument. Yes Western media privileges deaths in Western countries, because well… they are Western. Why is there always this hand-wringing and guilt about it? I’m sure that the Arab media privilege the deaths that occur in their own part of the world. Why is that a bad thing, or somehow seen as less virtuous? For myself, I was struck by how young and sweet so many of the people who died are. The neighbourhood is probably the equivalent of Fitzroy in Melbourne, and most of them looked like the kind who have been to art… Read more »

I wish I could say these events are surprising.. but we all know they’re not. They’ve been ramping up since the Hebdo attack. It’s beyond symbolic, in the sense that France has always stood for as we know, Liberte Egalite Fraternite and here they are again, attacking the very same values which so many refugees (aside from strictly economic refugees) have sought. There’s a lot of blame to go around, it’s the US, it’s the West, it’s Israel, it’s whatever.. but let’s be clear, the fight for a caliphate would happen regardless. This has been a centuries old wound worsened… Read more »

To be clear, by religion, I’m not just referring to Islam, but all religions that are steeped in dogma and exclusivity, such as the 3 main Abrahamic religions, in whose name so many atrocities have been/are carried out. Or used as an excuse to carry out crimes.

I’m so stunned by what has happened in Paris. The people attacked were locals enjoying the end of the week. At art class today (in Canberra, Australia) one of my classmates said the world has become a bad place. No, I said, the world is not a bad place but there are some people who do bad things. It’s always been so, but with 24/7 camera coverage of our lives we get to see acts of barbarism as they happen.
