Matt Savinar writes in Part II of II:
What opportunities might Uranus in Aries bring for you as an individual? Remember, as explained in Part I of this series, Uranus is the “Liberator” of the Zodiac while Aries is the sign of courage, confrontation, and self-preservation. To illustrate, consider the situation in Libya where Moammar Gadhafi has been to the Libyan people what a terrifyingly oppressive spouse is to their abused partner. According to this AP article, for instance, the perception among average Libyans has been that only Gadhafi mattered, only he was allowed to “dream about the future”. The ordeal of the four NY Times journalists kidnapped by one of Gadhafi’s militias makes clear the extent of the emotional devastation his rule has levied on the Libyan people:
"...a pattern had begun to emerge. The beating was always fiercest in the first few minutes, an aggressiveness that Colonel Qaddafi’s bizarre and twisted four decades of rule inculcated in a society that feels disfigured. It didn’t matter that we were bound, or that Lynsey was a woman..."
But moments of kindness inevitably emerged, drawing on a culture’s far deeper instinct for hospitality and generosity. A soldier brought Tyler and Anthony, sitting in a pickup, dates and an orange drink. Lynsey had to talk to a soldier’s wife who, in English, called her a donkey and a dog. Then they unbound Lynsey and, sitting in another truck, gave Steve and her something to drink. (Source)
The good news is that Uranus in Aries, in cahoots with other karmic bunker-buster type transits occurring right now, has emboldened the Libyan people to the point where they now stand a chance of overthrowing their oppressor once and for all. That, however, doesn’t mean the process won’t be without considerable struggle, suffering, and loss of life. If it takes a transit as potentially explosive as Uranus in Aries to liberate somebody – be it an individual or a collective entity such as a nation – then conditions have likely advanced to the point of extreme oppression. Overthrowing extreme oppression, unfortunately, rarely occurs in the absence of suffering and sacrifice.
