Want to know about the Amazonian Fires Astrology? Fine. Yes, I know about the fires. There have been two distinct types of communication to me (mostly via social media) about it. (1) “Can you tell me about the astrology of it?” (2) “Why haven’t you said/posted anything about it – people like you are part of the problem.”
Actually, no. I think snarking at people for not being swift enough to virtue signal is part of the problem. I’ve actually held off saying anything about this because my thoughts around it will irritate many people. Popularity contest? I would not even be allowed to compete.
So, first of all, it is particularly disturbing and sad to see this as Uranus settles into Taurus; the sign of (among other things) trees. There have been a few recent posts about them and in one I describe a recent “trip” I took during acupuncture. It is impossible to adequately describe but I was in a forest and connected to a sentient tree matrix. I came out of it with the distinct feeling that they were transmitting that they were in trouble. It felt like an appeal.
The Amazonian Fires Astrology Is Uranian And Plutonic
See these cool tree posts here: Trees, Magic and Astrology. And, The Secret Intelligence Of Trees. My idealistic version of Uranus in Taurus is that we sort this s**t out and that part of the transition to a post-capitalist, apres-neo-liberalism economy will involve significant environmental reforms.
Now for the unpopular bit. I may not be brilliant at virtue signaling but I don’t eat meat or dairy foods. Nor do I own a car or fly unless necessary. I rarely buy “things” but spend $ on subscriptions to content that enhances my life and companies like Living Libations. I’ve been eco-green, whatever it’s called since I gave up meat at the age of five. Dairy took heaps longer. I don’t have Christmas Trees – ever. They’re a huge cause of deforestation and why? So a live tree can die in your living room? That lovely scent of pine is it sadly emanating away its life force, while draped in EMF producing lights. It’s tree torture.
FYI the Pagan custom was to ceremonially bring in a branch of the tree to have in your house at midwinter. Not the whole damn tree cut down. The purpose was to honor nature and various deities, with the evergreen a reminder that Spring would return. It makes even less sense in a midsummer Christmas.
Anyway, back to Amazonian Fires Astrology. This vital “lungs of the Earth” is being destroyed to make way for cattle farming. Films like Cowspiracy make this abundantly clear. Even if animal rights is not a particular cause of yours or you feel that meat is necessary for human health, the effect of factory farming on the environment is incontrovertible.
The Future Is More Localist Than Globalist
The Amazonian Forest Astrology is hideously symbolic of Uranus (sudden) in Taurus (cattle and trees, to use old-style symbology). But it is also part of the very same Saturn-Pluto 2020 scenario that I talk about in my Mp3 rant. The age that we have been living in since the early 80s is coming to an end. Like many endings, it’s messy and replete with ancient regime people trying in vain to maintain their crappy system.
As I have said before in various Uranus in Taurus posts, the future is more localist than globalist. Why should we have Frankenstein chrysanthemums flown in from another country available at our local market? Or ship animals overseas in miserable, evil conditions to be slaughtered in a foreign country because…religion? Why is there endocrine disruptor in my eyeshadow and raisins flown in from the other side of the planet at the supermarket?
If more people bought local and eschewed meat/dairy, along with fast fashion and endless leisure flying, the planet would start to heal. And big corporations who wanted to maintain their revenue would be forced to die or figure out what people like us might want to buy. If governments had to back reasonable wages rather than importing people to stunt wages growth, communities would be healthier. The government would have to fund innovation, not rely on housing and assets bubbles along with cheap debt.
In the absence of any clear and obvious administration willing to undertake structural economic and environmental reforms, we can only live our lives by values that don’t fuq the planet. And think before you snark at someone on social media that they obviously “don’t care about the Amazon.”
