This morning as I blog on the decline of the American Empire at Stars Over Washington and on Neptune's ongoing transit to US natal Moon (we-the-people) and its dire influence on US housing and economic systems at Jude's Threshold, I am moved to re-publish my anti-war drawing Niobe's Plea.
As you know, in Astrology and Mythology, asteroid Niobe represents the archetype of the grieving mother. And when the misery of grieving mothers is ignored as innocent people are bombed by imperial governments with the collusion of their hand-maiden puppet governments, we know the Earth is in for a world of woe - and the population control brought by war is one of renegade governments' multitude of demons.
This reminds me of one of my Flower Power Generation's biggest questions in our day of the 1960s and 70s: what would happen if governments started a war and no one showed up? Apparently that's what it would take to stop governments from using us as pawns to fight for what amounts to the power elite's political advantages and resource plundering!
Can you dig it?
