As a union member, I feel solidarity with fellow unions. Also, as an Aquarius, I strongly identify with the power of the people. And my Scorpio moon knows that crossing a picket line would never be worth the karma!

One more thought for the night (someone posted this in response to a question about whether the U.S. is in the middle of a general strike):

 

“When it becomes 100% clear a game is rigged—people quit playing. They stop complying. They stop listening. They stop cooperating. They stop. Everything.”

I was a unionized worker for a few years. I believe in unions. I support workers' rights to organize and collectively bargain in good faith. But that's not what it is anymore, is it? Most large unions have generally lost my support, which is crazy considering how pro-union I used to be. Like, crazy pro-union.

My great grandfather and his brother blocked a train from coming in during the 1930s - I wish I could remember the whole story to tell it, but it was in support of their town's workers. My parents were both union workers. My dad was the union rep in his building for years. With all of that behind me, I could never cross a picket line. I'd feel as if my ancestors would all be shaking their heads at me in shame and disappointment from beyond the grave.

It's interesting that this striking is happening before Pluto moves into Aquarius. Unions are a very Aquarian phenomena; I wonder if Pluto there will be a move to crush unions? 🙁
