“They had these ideas when they were 23.. peace and love and while it’s a nice idea to have will you’re eating acid, the idea has no basis. There is no reality involved, it doesn’t work. I don’t disagree that their ideas are nice. Everyone lay down their gun. I’d love to see that but all it takes to ruin something like that is one _________,” he said, naming a psychopath we know. “One guy like that’ll ruin everything”.
3 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog: Astrology, Violence and the Collective’s Defense Against Reality: Predicting Pluto In Capricorn
Ask the Collective…
Okay, let’s change the subject! Did you know there is no such thing a (violent) crime of passion? Up until 1980 it was widely believed that people went crazy and committed violent acts. They were out of their mind and this thing happened. They killed someone or whatever. Many people still believe this and if I ever sit on a jury with one of them I will be able to disabuse them of this notion because I am familiar with the Lonnie Athens work.
2 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog – Violence In Society: Is Ballet Dependent On Football? VA Tech and the Indiana Prison Riot

The other day the soldier was in a flatbed semi loaded with steel. He thought he might have a motorcycle gang chasing him and was very thrilled with the prospect.
Now you couldn’t make up a more male (Mars) scenario and while it might make some uncomfortable, fact is the soldier likes to fight. And I don’t judge this. I know that violence exists in our world and in fact it erupts whether you like it or not.

Dan wrote on Elsa P and the Cat Burglar:
“I read a short story once about how life’s journey was like a rock in stream. Falling from a cliff above with sharp and jagged edges. Crashing and bouncing its way to the stream below. Where it embarks on a journey of tumbling and rolling with the aid of the stream soon the rough edges yield to change. After a while the rock becomes smooth and polished vastly different than when it began the journey. In that regard, I believe the experience of life changes people on some level. You don’t swing helmets at people anymore, do ya?”

I’ve never understood violence and humiliation as humour. Today I watched a video on the nets where a woman was humiliated. Comments on the video were overwhelmingly of the flavour that while they’d be mad as hell if it happened to them they had laughed their asses off. I also don’t get the whole Three Stooges I-hit-him-in-the-head-with-a-hammer school of funny.
I think it speaks to a lack of compassion for others. I think it’s pretty pervasive in our society, and I’d bet there’s a marker for it in individual charts. Suppose there are markers for everything: isn’t that what reading a natal chart is all about? Markers, for compassion, lack of compassion, maybe markers for killing.

From the Financial Times: Men bear the brunt of US jobs lost
Sarah O’Connor writes:
“The US recession has opened up the biggest gap between male and female unemployment rates since records began in 1948, as men bear the brunt of the economy’s contraction.
Men have lost almost 80 per cent of the 5.1m jobs that have gone in the US since the recession started, pushing the male unemployment rate to 8.8 per cent. The female jobless rate has hit 7 per cent.”

I feel a sense of responsibility to put this kind of stuff up here seeing as so many single women / single mothers read here and so few of us have any idea how to defend ourselves. You read a tip on this subject here or there and you never know when it might come in handy. The soldier has been here a year now and I have been transformed.

People read about my son getting shot with a BB gun last night.. The comments were passionate and the opinions diverse, ranging from “SUE THEM”, the “boys will be boys”.
I consider this an illustration of the Saturn opposition to Uranus in the sky in that there are shocking difference (Uranus) around what the reality of this situation is along with what “the right thing to do” (Saturn) would be.

Judging by the comments on the Astrology and Psychology of Stalking piece, it seems this is very common. Though I’ve not been stalked offline, I have definitely had more than my share of Mars energy run amok… like the guy who broke into my house and got in bed with me. There was another who inexplicably took off his pants in my living room (I was supposed to be showing him the house which was for sale though I was not an agent) and I had another guy… an old man I’d met at a company picnic show up at my house.
