Occupy Wall Street Protest

The Occupy Wall Street Protest movement is more of a global movement than US based. It’s origins probably started with the revolutions in the Arab world and the May 2011 Spanish Protests which also saw an occupation of a city center. Now the Occupy Wall Street Movement itself has gone global but to pin down a date for astrological purposes I have decided to stick to the first Occupy Wall Street protest: #OCCUPYWALLSTREET will begin @12pm at Bowling Green Park, NYC.

We and other astrologers all have been linking these global protest movements to the major planetary influence over the next few years, Uranus square Pluto, “a major generational upheaval…The focus is on revolutionary change.” In that article I also stressed the importance of the Internet in this radical change and we have seen how important this has been in the organization and leaderless nature of the global movement for change.

Occupy Wall Street Horoscope

So in the chart for Occupy Wall Street it is not surprising that Uranus is square Pluto by less than two degrees. Interesting Pluto has “stood still” on September 17, stationing ready to turn direct again. Pluto is the masses, and we can see that moment as people gathered in the park as a turning point, a call to the global community for action. The people gathered and stood still in the Park, ready to embark on their revolution.

Uranus square Pluto was not only spurred on by the station of Pluto, but it was also activated that day by Venus. Venus is opposite Uranus, square Pluto. Venus here can represent to desire for fairness, equality and peace. These are qualities associated with the Sun sign Libra, but that is only because it is said that Venus rules Libra. Above all though, it is the planet Venus which rules harmony and peace.

Venus also rules money, so with Venus activating Uranus square Pluto the revolution is about economic equality, socialistic values. Explosive outbursts directed at the aristocracy. The Uranus Pluto conjunction in the 1960’s saw peace protests. This time around with the square there is still an underlying peace movement feel but these values are definitely more linked to the economy, particularly the perceived failure of capitalism.

Many of us have been predicting economic disaster, a complete failure of the capitalist system. Astrologers and now even some economists are saying “depression”. Billionaire George Saros wrote on September 27, “Financial markets are driving the world towards another Great Depression with incalculable political consequences.”

I believe the Occupy Wall Street movement is a manifestation of our collective fear about where the global economy is headed. The finger is being pointed before the final economic disaster. The is shown n the chart by the Midheaven (MC), usually representing the leader in a mundane chart, but in this case it would be the collective. MC conjunct the fixed star Zosma gives the “ability to prophesy”.

The movement represents not just a need for change of the financial system alone. There is the desire for peace which is linked to finance, so much money wasted on death and destruction. There is also an environmental factor, the feeling we need to move away from the burning of fossil fuels which is raising global temperatures and sea levels. We can see this in the chart with Sun opposite Ceres because Ceres is the Earth Goddess associated with environmental concerns.

Occupy Wall Street Future

All the square and opposition point to a big struggle. But that how it should be, if they were easy trines and sextiles there would not be the motivation and everyone would still be blobbing in front of the idiot box. With Mars trine the Ascendant there is the energy and motivation for this movement to keep going.

The movement will of course face strong opposition. Pluto not only rules the mass movement but also police and spy agencies. Uranus square Pluto can manifest as a Cyber spy: Thomas Ryan. The Descendant (DC) in a chart rules partners but also open enemies. These open enemies will take the form of police and behind them government and money men. With the fixed star Algol on the DC we can expect violence, batons to the head.

    OAKLAND, CA. — Vanloads of officers from the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department and unmarked SWAT vans are at the police command center at the Port of Oakland.
    Protesters have effectively shut down maritime operations at the port, Director Omar Benjamin said Wednesday, as more than 4,500 people arrived at the gates.
    Earlier, 50 police officers, many in riot gear and armed with tear-gas canisters, formed a line at Maritime and Bataan roads, near the police command center. About a dozen motorcycle officers had formed a second line behind the police, but have now moved.
    About a dozen protesters on bicycles were facing off with the officers but are now riding around the streets outside the port. Where they are headed was not immediately known.
    The crowd of more than 4,500 arrived at the Port shortly after 5 p.m. and stretched several blocks down Middle Harbor Road leading into the port as they begin their attempt to shut down the port for start of the 7 p.m. night shift.
    Benjamin pledged that normal port operations would resume when “it’s safe and secure to do so.”
    “We ask that everyone remain calm, respectful and safe. Specifically, we ask that demonstrators allow port workers safe passage home. Please allow our fellow 99 percent to get home safe to their families.”
