Occupy Wall St.

The revolutionary fervor akin to that of the sixties generation is alive and well in over 1100 US cities now as the planets of revolution and innovation – Pluto and Uranus – meet once again in the sky. Again people are in the streets advocating for social, political and economic justice. This aspect is not going away any time soon and what we are witnessing now is just the beginning. One of the innovations used by this new generation is internet technology – a key organizing tool globally. Uranus which governs technology is squaring Pluto which can mean that technological innovations can challenge and undermine traditional power structures. This was seen in NY recently when the video of police pepper spraying peaceful protestors was broadcast over the internet and made the police rethink tactics that might have worked in the past. The power of corporately owned mainstream media is now being challenged also. Gil Scott Heron’s words, “the revolution will not be televised” ring true as the mainstream media has been slow, reluctant and confused in its coverage. But the live streaming on the internet speaks a very different language.
