Dilma Rousseff entered the Senate and calmly stared down her accusers. She left with her head held high after exhorting those Senators to vote with their conscience. Most of those politicians present probably had no idea what conscience means; they’re no more than corrupt messenger boys. But the Brazilian collective unconscious – Jung to the rescue – will be marked. President Dilma Rousseff, in a detailed, occasionally emotional speech, defended herself with honor and dignity from accusations she committed a “crime of responsibility”. She was not actually facing a political cesspool, but that ‘Angel of History’ so beloved by Walter Benjamin. History will judge her kindly.
Meanwhile, it ain’t over till a dodgy politico sings. As I write, Rousseff is on the way to be stripped from the presidency of the world’s 8th largest economy by a bunch of scoundrel-cum-coward politicos. Her only fear, she said, was the “death of democracy”. Rousseff’s impeachment means in practice that democratic voting in one of the world’s largest democracies will be cancelled by a parliamentary coup remote-controlled by oligarchic interests. This is not, and never was, about justice; it’s about dirty, nasty politics. Sept.1 http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45386.htm
The news of President Dilma Rousseff impeachment comes just at the September 1, solar eclipse. The eclipse falls very significantly on the descendant of the mundane chart of Brazil . Not only that, it forms a powerful T-square with the meridian axis at Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. The following extract from Nick Fiorenza’s post on the eclipse entitled New Directions explains very elegantly, the challenge facing the people of Brazil.
This New Moon eclipse lies in the midst of the stars of Leo and under the auspices of Thuban of Draco and Alioth of the Great Bear. It also conjoins the stars of the Sextant, and Suhail Velorum of Argo Navis in the very southern heavens.Thuban of Draco, in the far northern heavens, just north of Alioth of the Great Bear, was Earth’s pole star circa 2800 BCE, a point in Earth’s ~25,000-year “evolutionary cycle of the soul” at which time a turning and fractioning occurred in the hierarchical powers governing Earth. This dramatized the separation between those choosing to fight for a greater evolutionary vision and those wanting to maintain totalitarian control of the Earth.
This New Moon eclipse and lunar cycle is about personal and global leadership, transcendent evolutionary currents, and the use of personal will to direct our evolutionary course with impetus to reassess changing conditions and to change our tack in life accordingly to reach our desired destinations, or it can propel us in new directions of creative expression. It is easy to be misled in our actions if we are not clear within self and set our course. Our opportunity is to attune to subtler guiding currents that can guide us in right action and in the right direction that is attuned to and in harmony with accomplishing our greater soul intent of purpose.
This New Moon, on the North Lunar Node, lies opposite retrograde Neptune on the South Lunar Node, creating a potent T-square to Saturn, which still conjoins the red supergiant star Antares. This creates a strong resonance not only to the theme of the Saturn-Neptune square, but also to Saturn, which can manifest as the overt expression of established authoritarian power, especially in the big-business of politics. It also impels movement from the south to north node energetics, which means movement from antiquated ideals, veils of illusion and unfulfilled dreams of the past to the new directions and opportunities the eclipse inspires.
So will the people of Brazil quietly accept the new leadership of the corrupt politicians or will they rise up in defiance of this illegal parliamentary coup? Only time will tell.
