Hell Hath No Fury...

India taking the opportunity to make itself look good next to the US perhaps, but still...

Above is a painting by John Singer Sargent, of Orestes being pursued by the Furies. Well, that's what happens when you kill your own Mother aka womankind/Earth.

The FURIES or ERINYES were created from the blood of Uranus, as it dripped on the Earth (Gaia), when his son Saturn castrated him, in the name of patriarchal succession. Think of them as a nagging conscience on a mix of steroids and hormones.

"The Erinyes live in Erebus and are more ancient deities than any of the Olympians. Their task is to hear complaints brought by mortals against the insolence of the young to the aged, of children to parents, of hosts to guests, and of householders or city councils to suppliants - and to punish such crimes by hounding culprits relentlessly. The Erinyes are crones and, depending upon authors, described as having snakes for hair, dog's heads, coal black bodies, bat's wings, and blood-shot eyes. In their hands they carry brass-studded scourges, and their victims die in torment."

Though Eris was not one of the Erinyes, her name must come from the same root. She's the Goddess of chaos, strife and discord. Her opposite is Concordia, or Harmony. The dwarf planet, Eris, has been in Aries (in Greek myth her brother is Ares) for a long time, as has Uranus, who is now meeting up with her. Both are collective  planetary influences, residing in the outer realms, beyond Saturn and only have a personal effect by aspects and transits to one's natal points. Uranus is revolutionary, and full of surprises. The status quo is being jolted. The Earth might get a jolt, too. Uranus governs the electrical currents of the etherial body, so together with Eris, this foul medicine seems to be bringing up resonance of thousands of years of pain, so we may slowly begin to address it with the intent of healing.  (At the same time, Neptune in Pisces is still dissolving the past 2000 years of Piscean Age delusions). It goes back even farther, to pain/fear of castration, once a part of Cybele worship. Rapists have no balls, they can only feel like men by violating someone. For the record, it's not the penis itself that is scary - and they know it - but their rage, brutality and sadistic lack of empathy.

Two of the main issues of the day, in the US (a heavily Uranian influenced country) are the very likely possibility of a scorned, Scorpio (Mars/Pluto, ancient grudge and guilt) woman becoming president, and the evil and unjust verdict in the Stanford rape case. The victim of the crime - and I hesitate to call her that, because she has proven her pen is mightier than any sword - is getting global support as no rape victim ever has before. That's how we know something's up with the planets, creating the environment for this to happen. Change is slow, but it begins with outrage. In fact, this will probably even give Hillary Clinton a boost, as many women are that fed up and just want to see a non-three-legged person as leader of the so-called free world. Until now it's been 'anyone but a woman' - even a dump like trump. Castration fear.

Like her or not, we need this first step in the process to happen, be the bridge, just as we needed Obama to be the first African-American president. That was his major role - after that, he was just a president like any other (albeit a good one), not the second coming. Scorpios outnumber other signs as world leaders, btw.
