The Dignity of the Planets

2 07 2010

A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.

People sometimes say that “this generation” is corrupted, or that generations which are passed were morally less good than others. And it is tempting to go ahead and make judgements like this. For example, to say that the Pluto in Scorpio generation are meaner or that they are impure, or materialistic, is tempting, especially since Pluto, planet of the underworld, does have a great lexis of “evil” associations and that Scorpio, its so-called modern rulership, amounts to the same “dark” or “sexual” connotations.

Such judgements are made by childish minds. Pluto is the planet of temptation. No man can be tempted to do evil unless he wishes to. The dignity of planets is based on them representing people, and it is clear that the outer planets only represent things that are beyond death, and are not living. Pluto, or Hades is simply the temptation of power, and is to be resisted by those who are aware of it.

People are however, good or bad. There really is no grey area in moral judgement. Being good means observing religious principles, and not yielding to corrupt influences. In the film “Pulp Fiction” which incidentally came out during Pluto in Scorpio, Samuel L. Jackson states that:

“The Path of the Righteous Man Is Beset on All Sides by the inequities of the Selfish and the Tyranny of Evil Men.”

Although these words are powerful and moral sounding, they are not in fact from any moral text. Does this diminish their power, does it demean their moral significance? Here is a character who has as he states in the film, a revelation. He goes through a spiritual transformation from living one life without moral principle, to another life of living with moral principle.

Although generations can be deemed to be “degenerate”, such as the one that went to war twice in the early 20th century, this is not to say that all people of that generation were corrupt or “evil”. It only ever takes a few bad apples, and a majority who are weak enough to be persuaded by them to do evil.

Having said this though, once one holds firm to a set of beliefs or principles, once one decides on being moral, whatever the religion, whether it be Hindu or Catholic, because both of these are based on the principles of non-violence, and of love, then it becomes fairly easy to see the moral turpitude and absence of love in those people who do not live by any moral framework.

He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
(Psalm 24:4,5)

Indeed it is possible to go further. “Everything is political” is a statement which relates closely to another phrase: “everthing is moral”. All people have 9th houses and Jupiter in their charts. Those who choose may wish to abide by the rules which have been given to us by divine revelation. Those who refuse, those especially who call themselves agnostic, or “non-religious” will always be weak, they will be subject to the lies, to deception, because outside of religion, there is nothing that is permanent. What some call science, does not have moral principle.
