Post-Labor Day News Roundup

  • After last year’s debacle over the Swine Flu hysteria, vaccine makers aren’t taking any chances and are practically giving the stuff away this year.
  • Strikes by train workers in London and France are creating Mercury retrograde havoc for commuters.
  • Let’s file this under Mercury retrograde for revisiting past research efforts that fell by the wayside: Scientists are researching the medicinal value of “magic mushrooms” and marijuana.  Watch for a post on this subject coming soon!

And in news that isn’t related to astrology but interesting nonetheless: a new study shows that money can only buy happiness up to an income of about $75,000 a year. After that point the happiness quotient, as defined with general satisfaction about your life and your day to day experience of joy, levels off.

Finally, a brief roundup of a few great astroblogs:

  • Twilight examines a Bosch painting from the astrological viewpoint.
  • JM examines the breakdown of the Obama presidency under Uranus at the 29th degree of Pisces.
  • Kathryn gives her take on the Stephen Hawking controversy.
  • And Beth reminds us that alone time is a valuable thing.

Will Neptune in Pisces Bring the Legalization of Marijuana?

It looks like we’re heading in that direction:  “The Justice Department this week announced that it will no longer seek to prosecute people using, prescribing, or distributing pot for medical purposes, as long as they’re in compliance with local law. However, regulations in some medical marijuana states remain murky.”
Murky sounds like Neptune, whose penchant for transcendent experiences encompasses both the sublime and spiritual and the confused and deluded.  An argument can be made the marijuana straddes both of these realms and can be used for spiritual insight as well as the illusion of escapism.
Neptune enters Pisces, its own sign, in April 2011.  Since both Neptune and Pisces rule all kinds of drugs, both natural and pharmaceutical, it is likely that legalization and recategorization of drugs could take place during this time period, along with a growing acceptance of drugs as tools for religious experience.
