VIOLENT CRIME IS GROWING…WHY?
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
I was asked why crime has increased by an alarming rate in South Africa so I made a promise to write an article. I could think of one very strong planet that has the ability to shock us as well as turn crime on its head.
Well I looked at the most obvious Planet and that is Uranus. The traditionalists saw Uranus as a malefic planet that is associated with divorce, separation and disruption.
Uranus never does anything slowly, rather acts like a whirlwind with the capacity of destabilising life forcing shocking events but at time innovative change. Uranus has the ability to cause chaos where ever he goes. The sign he is transiting through will describe the areas and nature of where we may experience this chaos and instability.
On the 15th of May Uranus entered the placid fixed and conservative sign of Taurus. One could liken this to an earthquake that has the ability to disrupt our normal safe and stable lives forever.
Taurus represents, wealth, money, our land and land in general, material things that give us a sense of security, status and value in life itself. Taurus is our heritage and is Taurus is conservative holding onto stability, safety and security. Uranus is certainly nothing like this, rather favouring the extreme and revolution. Uranus is unpredictable, swift and sudden, impulsive and thrives on extreme change.
We can already sense that Uranus transiting through Taurus in certainly not a mix made in heaven.
At this point I would like to look at the history of what went down when Uranus was last in Taurus which was in 1934 until 1941, Uranus spends on average 7 years in a sign. This was the period that was impacted but the onset of the Second World War.
Security was very much on people’s minds, women lives took on a sudden change and they were encouraged to take on the men’s roles in factories as well as working on the land. At the age of 21 women were given the right to vote which was a huge and in that time surprising shift in power.
During this period Hitler began his 12 years of dictatorship encouraging the birth of Aryans, forbidding marriage with Jews. This was the beginning of the genocide and the terrible, shocking atrocities where more than 9 million Jewish suffered torturous deaths.
Mass surveillance was introduced as the Gestapo compiled dossiers on all Germans to suppress political opposition. We are already have and will be introducing mass surveillance in the terms of cameras throughout cities, streets and in our suburbs but we are doing this for personal protection and security.
But let’s face it living in a crime ridden South Africa in this moment of time is in its own way similar to living in a war zone. Race and gender are a big factor bringing about disruption, hate resulting in a flood of families either being abused or slaughtered and others fleeing their homeland for the unknown at the of risk losing everything they own in the process as they seek safety and security elsewhere.
In a manner of speaking looking at our current political situations we have parties murdering each other just to gain power due to greed, once again the need for material security and keeping ones status secure raises its ugly head. With Uranus in Taurus this is worth killing for.
Taurus is very much a sign involved with culture and heritage; we may see the leaders of the many tribes in Africa fighting even more aggressively to maintain their power over other cultures.
This is already happening as the Italians are returning Siberians back to their own war torn country to face slavery and death. Compassion is no longer a key point in helping those that are weak; this sudden change in compassion will become stronger due to the Uranus in Taurus shifts of energy.
Is there any good news or is this just violent times. Well historically there were many positive innovative changes, when Uranus was in Taurus during the 1850 period the Industrial Revolution brought forth changes using basic materials such as iron, steel and coal. This advanced into steam engines and electricity and the invention of new machines which brought in turn developments in transportation and communication.
Mass production lead to socio economic developments and huge changes in urban areas, this change was a positive powerful type of shift bringing about a new cultural and demographic energy. Before this period life as they knew it was stagnant then the technological explosion shot people into a completely different lifestyle as to where and how they lived due expansive work opportunities and new technological and material lifestyles.
The 1930period also brought about new inventions as well as new more potent and powerful energy sources due to the discovery of nuclear power and production of trans uranium elements.
It was a time where we saw the emergence of radar tests, HD colour TV, the ball point pen and florescent lights. Transatlantic aircraft with pressurised cabins and the testing of turbo jets as well as the first helicopter as well as jets were developed at an exponential speed.
High rise buildings emerged due to the invention of the first Otis lift. Towards the end of the Uranus transit in Taurus due to the war, dependence on aid from America was the beginning of the super power the United States had over the world.
Uranus brings sudden change, when it enters a new sign it will take on the energy of the planets that are transiting at that moment of time, so we need to look at the bigger picture to enable us to understand the energy in due to the transits on the15th of May Uranus in Taurus will take on.
Jupiter a planet the brings about a lot of energy expressed by the sign he is in was and still is retrograde in Scorpio, Scorpio is a sign that brings transformation in many ways, be it death or ending a situation, a divorce or energy that can cause one to snap. When a planet is retrograde it behaves against nature and in Scorpio the change and endings go against nature when used in a negative way, in a positive way we have time to reflect on how we need to end thing and avoid snap decisions that are totally destructive as the sting of a scorpion.
So Jupiter in Scorpio can bring about a lot of destructive behaviour that can go totally against nature when retrograde.
At the same time Saturn a planet associated with authority and discipline was and still is retrograde as well. Authority figures will also behave against nature and because Saturn is in Capricorn a sign associated with structure, structure is no longer working as it should, nor is authority or the law. Greed and bribes due to a need of material security from those in authoritarian positions will increase breaking the system even further allowing for a sudden violent wave of criminal behaviour to take place. When there is a lack of discipline and broken structures, bad behaviour is easily enjoying free reign.
As Uranus is in the earth sign of Taurus we will experience many violent land grab scenarios, land will become a big agenda. The need for material security in the form of land will that was promised is sure to bring violent and stressful struggles as people fight for the right of a stable foundation from which to live, a basic need is a home and that need for the homeless will become a priority at all costs.
So hopefully we can better understand how this 7 year transit of Uranus is going to be an aggressive one, highlighting things that are not working and systems that are failing. We may even have to deal with the consequences of what happened in the 1930’s regarding the discovery uranium and nuclear usage, this could be the discovery of an innovative manner of disposing of this waste.
By the end of Uranus’s reign in Taurus we trust that the broken unstructured leaderships and ineffective transformation will be exposed by Uranus, a period which will highlight greed leading to crime that can present in a negative and violent manner. Expose how we ourselves need to create our own security both financially and safety but most of all due to all the above Uranus in Taurus will bring us the gift of innovative safety and security measures.
