Alabama – Saturn Pluto writ large – cold-hearted, bleak ** Roe v Wade

    

 

Alabama, has approved the most far-reaching effort in the USA this year to curb abortion rights in all cases including rape and incest, except where the mother’s life is at serious risk. It criminalizes the procedure for doctors, who could be charged with felonies and face up to 99 years in prison. It now moves to the desk of the female Republican Governor who is expected to support it. Opponents have vowed to challenge the measure in federal court if it becomes law. But it’s being seen as the first shot across the bows of Roe v Wade with Brett Kavanaugh now on the Supreme Court.

Alabama, 14 December 1819, was a former slave state, known as the “cotton state” and until relatively recently still had Jim Crow legislation to disenfranchise African-American residents, so it’s pretty died-in-the-wool dinosaur territory.

No surprises it became a state when a repressive Saturn Pluto was in place in Pisces square the Sagittarius Sun Uranus Neptune and trine the Scorpio Moon – bleak, unyielding, cold-hearted, fanatical, violent, power hungry.

It looks on edge (which could be for any number of reasons) come June this year with tr Uranus square its Mars, repeating into 2020; and is on a swampy Neptunian slide downhill from 2021 onwards for several years as tr Neptune squares the Sun and is then square Uranus and conjunct Saturn and Pluto till the mid 2020s.  Neptunian can be healing, will certainly soften or at least undermine the state’s rigid defences.

One of the orchestrators of this move is Eric Johnston of the Alabama Pro-Life Coalition, 22 January 1948 St Louis, Missouri.  Unsurprisingly he’s also got a Saturn Pluto conjunction in his case the leading planets of an ideologically driven Air Grand Trine of Mercury in Aquarius trine Neptune trine a Gemini Moon, formed into a Kite.

His high hopes look dashed in 2020/2021 (again could be for any number of reasons) as tr Neptune squares his Jupiter; and that is followed by a series of major setback Solar Arcs through till 2022/23.

NB: To be noted. Appalling though the Alabama vote has been, even if enacted, it isn’t as draconian as the Northern Ireland abortion laws which are a total obscenity.

ROE V WADE Post: NOVEMBER 14 2016 Roe versus Wade which was the landmark US ruling asserting a woman’s right to have an abortion up to the time of foetal viability was agreed on 22 January 1973. It now looks to be at risk of being overturned with a new pro-life (and pro-gun!) right-wing administration.

There is concern writ large on this chart at the moment from tr Saturn conjunct the Mars exactly now and tr Neptune square the Saturn and Mars through 2017/2019. 2018/19 look to be the danger points with ferocious argument from tr Uranus square Uranus in 2018 as well as a disappointing Solar Arc Neptune conjunct Jupiter; and then in 2019 a ‘shocking’ Solar Arc Mars conjunct the Sun as well as a disruptive upheaval from tr Pluto square the Uranus. If it is was ever going to be overturned this looks like the time  – though it did survive through the early 1990s triple conjunction in Capricorn. But this looks if anything more serious.  Saturn Pluto in Capricorn’s repressive and heavily masculine energies may just do it.

  1. Many have said this is a calculated step towards the repeal of Roe v Wade in the US. I’d speculate a step taken by the orange cretin with the electoral votes of millions of Right wing Christians in the US in mind, in keeping also with his “vote friendly” belligerence towards Iran with the same base. Roe v Wade 22nd January 1973 according to wiki. Must be taking a hammering from Uranus about now.

  2. And so, the Handmaid’s Tale starts to become a reality. And they said Margaret Atwood was being too dramatic and far-fetched and nothing like this has or would ever happen. Of which she replied, something like, ”but it’s all been taken from reality at different times and put together as this story.” What a misogynist’s wet dream, male and female alike, to manifest such horrors on women and educate men under this ideology that this is the normal way to be. Combine the MeToo stories and statistics coming out with this vile Taliban-Christianity and you have a hot vomit broth in the making for the masses to choke on under their rule. Lovely. The Lord would be so proud, you guys. Preaching hatred, control, narrow-mindedness, lack of love and compassion, isn’t this what it’s all about? They should be so proud of themselves……?

  3. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announcing his candidacy for 2020 (another 1 in the crowded Democrat field!)
    this morning on Good Morning America.
    He was born 8 May 1961 at 19.03p.m., in Manhattan, New York.
    Any thoughts re him Marjorie please?
    Thank you if you look into him.

  4. Savita Halappanavar lived and died in Galway, Republic of Ireland. Her death led to the changes in Irish abortion law.

  5. One Alabama lawmaker stated, “Kill them now or you kill them later…” Meaningless statement. This country continues to leglslate human behavior through fear, intimidation, and imprisonment. Stop the boat; let me off.

    Isn’t this the state where that county clerk denied marriage licenses to gay/lesbian couples? Because it offended her religious practices? Back to the stone age, dragging women by the hair into the troll caves.

    • The County Clerk who refused the marriage licencses to gay/lesbian couples was Kim Davis from Rowan County, Kentucky.

  6. Sorry, Savita Halappanavar’s case was in the republic of Ireland. A different country. And the republic of Ireland repealed their abortion laws last Autumn so such a case as Savita’s won’t happen again.

  7. Thanks Marjorie,

    Grotesque as all you say is, our very own Christian Taliban Jacob Rees Mogg believes in this stuff too. He sees fit to tell a woman, whatever the circumstances, what she can and cannot do with her body, in the name of his imaginary friend in the sky.

    • Not forgetting the retrogressive policies of the bible-thumping DUP who are currently propping up our own dear government.

  8. Shocking that 22 male Senators voted against including an exception for rape or incest in Alabama’s new draconian abortion law. But you’re right about Northern Ireland: remember Savita Halappanavar who died in 2012 at age 31 from septicemia — an infection she contracted after she was denied an abortion during a miscarriage. I have to keep reminding myself that this is 2019.
