Now this is interesting and mirrors what I suspected was the case. The Kaiser Family Foundation has published new poll numbers with answers to two questions:
- It’s more important than ever now to tackle the problem of healthcare; or
- We can’t afford to tackle healthcare now.
The first opposition of Uranus (change) to Saturn (not change) occurred on November 3, election day. At that time there was the widest disparity of opinions on this subject. The second phase of the cycle occurred in February, and you can see the divergence at that point. Chiron and Neptune were also conjunct at that time.
The second phase of the Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune conjunction occurred at the end of May, and at that point healing and healthcare (Chiron) evidently became a greater concern for the public as the gap in public opinion began to shrink, despite the violent town hall meetings that occured this summer. By August the gap was at its smallest, diverging again in September with the opposition of Saturn and Uranus.
It will be interesting to see what will happen over the next few months as Saturn enters Libra and begins to square Pluto. I suspect that there will be a greater desire to agree and form alliances under the Libra influence, and the square to Pluto could bestow a greater sense of impending danger which needs to be addressed.
