Here in North Carolina citizens are voting on a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. I have been listening to some of the conservative talk radio shows in an attempt to find out the reasoning behind the necessity for this amendment.
It seems to me that if people are so concerned about the sanctity of marriage the first thing to be outlawed should be divorce. This is really less about marriage and more about the perceived “wrongness” of homosexuality. But since we are in a Saturn in Libra phase where the Celestial Taskmaster (Saturn) is dealing with issues of relationship and partnership (Libra), it’s no wonder that the boundaries of conventional social mores in relationships are being tested.
Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, and both share a love for the status quo and The Way It’s Always Been. The people who are speaking out for this new constitutional amendment tell us that marriage has been between a man and a woman since the beginning of time, so why change it? (Let’s ignore for a moment the fact that marriage between people of different races was illegal in North Carolina until 1971.) This is where Pluto comes in, because Pluto is the destroyer of things that no longer serve us, and in Capricorn Pluto is knocking the heads off of all of our sacred cows.
At the same time the square of Uranus to Pluto is creating rebellion of all kinds, and even staunch conservatives are refusing to toe the party line on this and many other matters. This is a time of change, and change will be inevitable. Those who try to anchor to the shore will find their boats shredded in the tides.
