“There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations, much is given. Of other generations, much is expected. This Generation has a rendezvous with destiny.”
Franklin Roosevelt – 1936
Pluto is in Capricorn and it defines an era not seen in roughly 289 years when last the planet ruling collective transformation or degeneration of the human race transited the sign of business, executive power, utility and the creation of new kinds of political and religious order. An age of secular enlightenment leading to the American Revolution was born in the last Pluto-Capricorn transit.

Clown in the Moon
My tears are like the quiet drift
Of petals from some magic rose;
And all my grief flows from the rift
Of unremembered skies and snows.
I think, that if I touched the earth,
It would crumble;
It is so sad and beautiful,
So tremulously like a dream.
Above the tower – a lone, twice-sized moon.
On the cold river passing night-filled homes,
It scatters restless gold across the waves.
On mats, it shines richer than silken gauze.
Empty peaks, silence: among sparse stars,
Not yet flawed, it drifts. Pine and cinnamon
Spreading in my old garden . . . All light,
All ten thousand miles at once in its light!

“That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing”
To understand one you must understand the other.

And to my fellow travelers on the Left who despair at the realization that our homegrown enemies of democracy do not respond to reason and right, I would remind them that we have access to an inexhaustible stockpile of the one weapon against which they have always been powerless:
“The Devil, the proud spirit, cannot endure to be mocked.”
— St. Thomas More
