Does Pluto in Aquarius = Aliens? Well, why not? I said it would a while ago although apparently the more appropriate term is now “non-human intelligence.” Anyway, UFO “whistle-blower” David Grusch popped up on cue, shortly after the last Full Moon, with Mercury conjunct Uranus.
On June 5 the former American Air Force officer went public with his fantastic – in the true meaning of the word – accounts of various clandestine fuqery involving extra-terrestial craft, encounters with the beings flying them and thriller-esque allegations of the Vatican, Mussolini and “a private corporation” having or having had actual UFOs parked someplace presumably hush-hush.
And naturally the whole deal has been waved away as nonsense by the usual suspects. It’s difficult to dismiss Grush so airily though as he has legitimate form in this space – apart from being a decorated combat veteran, he worked for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency and others.
He’s obviously fascinating and I would love to know his birthdate but the only publicly available info is “born in 1987” – I assume that the Mercury-Uranus conjunction really resonated with him* and that he must have some potent Uranian placements buzzing away there.
Skeptics, of course, can simply say that for a whistle-blower, the guy hasn’t actually produced any evidence. However, for the record, I’ve written on here before about the UFO I saw – along with my whole primary school class – when I was about six. It was a classic ‘flying saucer,’ a totally silent silvery-platinum sphere and remarkable for its exit – it simply shot straight upward and disappeared.
I sporadically encounter people who’ve also had UFO sightings and we’re all similarly awed, yet disbelieved. It also seems logical that with the trillions of galaxies et al, why wouldn’t there be other life-forms? To me, the most interesting things Grusch said were about non-human intelligence and alternative dimensions.
If you leave aside spacecraft, Roswell and interstellar speculation, practically every human culture has accounts of another – usually semi-magical – genre of beings. Invisible to most people, their paths nonetheless intersect with ours and tales of such phenomena are woven through myths from the beginning of recorded time.
Hollywood has been the most flamboyant myth-maker for the last century and interestingly, the style of “alien” depicted in movies seems to vary along with the Uranus sign – aka trend zeitgeist – of the era:
Uranus in Cancer: The Day The Earth Stood Still – 1951 – A friendly, Jesus-like but paternalistic alien arrives as an emissary to tell Earth citizens to get their s**t together and make peace or risk being obliterated by interplanetary police robots. 1956: Invasion of the Body Snatchers –
Uranus in Leo: Invasion of the Body Snatchers – 1956 – A small-town doctor discovers that aliens are replacing people with “pod people” – bland versions of their former selves with no individual nature. In the end, the aliens give up because our humanity/individualism is so potent.
Uranus in Virgo: Day of the Triffids – 1962 – Carnivorous extra-terrestial plants that may or may not have been catalyzed by human greed (they’re used to make a commercially valuable industrial seed oil!) nearly bring about societal collapse but are foiled by a clever scientist.
Uranus in Libra: Escape To Witch Mountain – 1975 – Magically gifted children – telepathy etc – gradually realize that they’re of extra-terrestrial origin. With the aid of some kindly humans/cute animals, they make it to the spacecraft pick-up point and reunite with their kind.
Uranus in Scorpio: Close Encounters of the Third Kind – 1977 – Torpedo bombers last seen in the Bermuda Triangle reappear in the desert and after encountering a UFO, an electrician becomes obsessed. He ends up infiltrating the government’s secret UFO rendezvous base.
Uranus in Sagittarius: E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial – 1982 – Aliens visit Earth to pick some flower specimens but in the chaos of a police raid, one is left behind. Rescued by a ten-year-old boy, the two form a strong bond and foil government agents to get “E.T.” back to his family.
Uranus in Capricorn: They Live – 1988 – A homeless man finds ‘hacker sunglasses’ that reveal the world’s elite to be extra-terrestrial beings controlling the masses via subliminal messages and bribing human collaborators vast wealth. He destroys the transmitter and the world awakes.
Uranus in Aquarius: Independence Day – 1996 – Aliens invade spectacularly and the situation prompts every nation on Earth to set aside their political differences to defeat the common enemy. The President personally goes up in a fighter jet to help fend off the invaders.
Uranus in Aquarius also saw the release of Contact, Men in Black, Communion, Signs and Star Trek First Contact. It was a peak period for non-human intelligence dramas, clearly. Signs was actually launched with Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius.
Uranus in Pisces: District 9 – 2009 – Extra-terrestrial beings have landed on Earth and been treated hideously. A weapons manufacturer inadvertently becomes half-alien and decides to help them escape. The ending is ambivalent but there are tractor beams and political corruption.
You can see the projections, right? I’m sure you have better examples or astro-corrolations than this.
As for Mr Grusch, I’m interested in the apparently impending official response to his allegations and presumably when Pluto returns to Aquarius (this is a relatively brief bingle back into Capricorn), there will be more!
*You may recall that this alignment is renowned for out-there announcements and still has the power to surprise, even in our jaded and accelerated culture. It nearly happened in April but then Mercury went Retrograde and whatever was on the verge of occurring instead built up momentum ahead of the belated conjunction on June 5. I wrote that there would be a Uranian manifestation – an event or announcement but Grusch and his allegations exceeded all expectations.
