The Stonewall riots occurred in New York City during June of 1969. Back then, many of these overtly aggressive and prejudicial behaviors were fueled by fear or hatred of people who identify as LGBTQ+ and today this hatred continues to be fueled by conservatism. The Stonewall Riots led to the creation and manifestation of the LGBTQ+ movement in the USA. Fortunately, many 50th-Anniversary-of-Pride events were successfully celebrated within several communities in different areas of America last year. I’m disappointed that there will not be an official San Francisco Pride 2020 celebration event in-person; although, I’m glad it is scheduled to occur as an online event. Even though I’m a White American man, because I’m gay, some of my experiences and feelings convey to me that systemic prejudice, oppression, bigotry, and corruption are interconnected epidemics in America, resulting in socioeconomic consequences.
There’s energetic links or parallels between the unrest of the 1969 protests of Vietnam and Stonewall Riots and the unrest of the 2020 COVID-19 situation and protests of racism. Interestingly, the Astrology chart of June 1969 shows two aspects that are also shown in the Astrology chart of June 2020. Both charts show Mars-Neptune conjunctions, which denote: assertions into society, expression in communities, responding to feelings, immediate reactions, multifarious emotions, fragmentation, unraveling of form, big ideas, and a collective psychological orientation. Mars-Neptune energy is very right-brain and is linked with intuition, imagination, self-discovery, self-purification, openness, compassion, dreams, escape, collective unconscious, interconnectedness, and Being. Also, both charts show Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions. Jupiter-Pluto energy is linked with transformations of objective truth, or transformations of people's experiences of their truth, reality, values, beliefs, etc. Truth is relative. The question is: what are the facts? Facts are about as close as we can get to objective truth. To remedy the Jupiter-Pluto conjunction, critical-thinking skills, a high need to observe cognition, and evidence-based verification are all especially important this year, as they were in 1969.
During the previous Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in December of 2007, an economic recession occurred in the US. About thirteen years later, at the current Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in 2020, another economic recession has occurred in the US and the Coronavirus pandemic is quickly dissolving America into another great depression, due to the lack of leadership by corrupt government officials. The corporate elite (the establishment in America) are being summoned to change their behavior of exaggeration, over-extension, avarice, and corruption. In 2020 (as in 2007) the leadership in America is fanatical, deceptive, and unaccountable for their actions. The consequences of this insidious behavior appear to be far-reaching. Circumstances are gradually culminating toward a paradigm shift that is upcoming (around July of 2026). I imagine that many Americans age 70+ understand, through experience, that 2020 is feeling very similar to how life felt during the late 1960’s.
Importantly, both the LGBTQ+ Movement and the Black Lives Matter Movement are about human rights; specifically, manifesting human rights into law. "Human rights" is a phrase used to describe sets of multi-faceted socio-economic rights, involving large groups of people in different communities. We are seeing that people of the LGBTQ+ community have been dealing with prejudice, oppression, etc., for being who they are and living their lives. For example, Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells was violently murdered in Pennsylvania and Riah Milton was killed in Ohio. Both of these transgender women were murdered on June 9th, 2020. President Trump has chosen to turn his back on the human rights of LGBTQ+ communities by enacting legislation that thwarts the human rights of transgender people in America (glaad.org/tap/donald-trump). We are also seeing that Black and Brown communities have been dealing with the aforementioned injustices for being who they are and living their lives. For example, Derek Chauvin chose to murder George Floyd; and, according to CNN, he could receive over $1,000,000 dollars in pension benefits funded by taxpayers. It turns out that Minnesota state law does not require employees to relinquish pensions if they are convicted of a felony crime. Of course, we all know that all lives matter; however, because of widespread corruption in America, Black, Brown, and LGBTQ+ lives matter more right now - so that we as Americans move closer to the equality and Democratic-unity that the so-called leaders of the country espouse.
Forty-nine LGBTQ+ people (mostly Brown) were slaughtered at a nightclub in Florida known as Pulse, during a Pride celebration. In America, violence has and is currently disproportionately and adversely impacting the lives of LGBTQ+, Black, and Brown people. These communities are currently experiencing more gun-violence than any other communities. The Human Rights Campaign, Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, Giffords Law Center and Equality Florida released a new report highlighting the impact of gun violence on the LGBTQ community. According to the report, “Remembering and Honoring Pulse: Anti-LGBTQ Bias and Guns are Taking Lives of Countless LGBTQ People,” more than 10,000 hate crimes in America involve guns, annually, which amounts to over twenty-eight deaths per day. Guns and weapons are closely linked with policing and the military. The militarization of police and police-brutality behaviors illustrate how fearful the elite are, and how "The One Percent" are attempting to rule "The Ninety-Nine Percent." At the national level, the American Military- Industrial-Complex is being utilized by corporate elitists and investors as a high-voltage machine to oppress citizens. At the state level, police departments are being leveraged by elitists and investors as power-tools to oppress citizens. Overall, the establishment is being very manipulative and misusing power by giving Whites preferential treatment, and at the same time, enforcing an oppressive agenda onto LGBTQ+, Black, and Brown communities.
It's clear why "coming out" is such an arduous task or process in American society. Every person deserves to live their lives and express themselves authentically, genuinely, and honestly. Ethnicity, language, religion, culture, gender expression, sexual orientation, and gender identity are not barriers. Differences are not boundaries. As mentioned in my previous newsletter, people are 99% the same genetically, and only 1% different. It seems that the oligarchs are focusing on merely the 1% differences within people genetically and choosing to ignore the bigger picture. The Aristocracy has foolishly propelled America into a wall. In ~2024 when America experiences its Pluto Return around its 248th birthday, transformation will inevitably lead to rebirth. This is an opportunity for a substantially thorough and effectively widespread revivification of the majority of American citizens. The combination of the U.S. Pluto Return cycle in ~2024 and the upcoming Uranus-Pluto trine aspect in ~2026 denotes the occurrence of a substantial and thorough paradigm shift that will be apparent and inevitable before the end of the 2020's decade.
Human rights apply to all people and can become enforced by more nations of the world, under International Law. It's the responsibility of each person to do the best he or she can to be focused on being, creating, and manifesting the change and reality desired. The people come together in communities that are developed, organized, and united across states, provinces, and countries of the world. Which countries have decided to enforce LGBTQ+ and human rights laws? According to the United Nations, "Where domestic legal proceedings fail to address human rights abuses, mechanisms and procedures for individual and group complaints are available at the regional and international levels to help ensure that international human rights standards are indeed respected, implemented, and enforced at the local level." It's the responsibility of people as individuals and in unity to do everything they can to press national leaders and government leaders to be accountable for enforcing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which can be viewed or downloaded at https://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/index.html.

Now, and going forward, it's very important for each person to practice self-love and self-care. This can help to create and manifest much more well-being among the American population. As part of the healing process, I predict that America's government, corporations, and institutions will become ethical, accountable, and satiable, not only for themselves, but also for the American people, and hopefully they will remain that way. It's incumbent upon each of us to actively choose to engage in our own healing moving forward, otherwise my prediction is no longer valid. Why not begin your healing journey today? What are you waiting for? A hero? You are the hero of your own story. Bravery and vulnerability go hand-in-hand. The journey to transformation requires a concerted effort to focus on your own inner healing, which will partially be uncomfortable or painful. The first step to healing includes becoming aware of your personal baggage so that you can choose clearly the best area to focus on next. I have created special Astrology readings for those who are interested in being a part of the transformation. Gandhi said, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." Here's an opportunity.
