That's the Way the High Court Crumbles

11.28.05

Even I can't invent better shit than this.

For those who 'read' the world's events for symbolic meaning, there's plenty to make of today's report of chunks of marble falling from the US Supreme Court Building in Washington, DC.

While in the midst of a potentially huge ideological shift in the highest judicial body in America, its stately fašade cracks and crumbles for the world to see. According to CNN.com, 'The piece that fell was over the figure of Authority, near the peak of the building's pediment, and to the right of the figure of Liberty, who has the scales of justice on her lap.'

And this, right as the transiting Libran Moon (bearer of the aforementioned scales) passed over the Midheaven at approximately 9:30 am Washington time… applying to a square with Chiron, that wounded healer guy, in the sign of Capricorn (otherwise known as Authority). Hmmm.

Looks like the Jupiter-Uranus trine, which had its first of three exact peaks on Sun Nov 27, has already begun to smash up against the powers that be. Quite literally.

If you think a chunk of falling marble is just a sign of things to come, then wait until Pluto (the Great Destroyer) enters Capricorn (otherwise known as Authority) in 2008. Government may never be the same again…
