There's some amazingly bad news coming out of Canada this morning for anyone opposed to the trajectory of the current global agenda. Stephen Harper, our Taurus Sun Global Governor/Conservative Prime Minister, has been re-elected, and this time, in a majority. The Taurus New Moon unfolds into a new Taurus Sun-led government, right on schedule.
I felt that Saturn Rx on Harper's North Node-Juno conjunction at 12 degrees Libra would produce another minority government, but the Aries stellium on his South Node-Mercury has propelled him to independence. Free to pursue the corporatist war agenda at his will.
This is a man who has been held in contempt of Parliament, who refuses to hold press conferences or answer questions from journalists, who conducts governmental affairs under a cloak of secrecy. Under his "leadership," the House of Commons was all but abandoned, including a prorogueing during the 2010 Olympics. Harper has proven to be an insular, difficult, 'my way of the highway' type of Prime Minister under a minority government, and unfortunately, we haven't seen anything yet.
Harper spoke to the Bilderberg group prior to his installation as Prime Minister in 2006, and his government has gone full speed ahead into North American Union merger. Canadian troops were sent into the quagmire in Afghanistan and are now involved in the attacks against oil-rich Libya. A Canadian General leads the NATO mission there.
Development of the toxic and deadly tar sands in Alberta has steamrolled ahead under this government despite protest from native people who are being slowly poisoned by the carcinogenic tailings. Fossil fuels and nuclear power are the energy solutions under this government, guided strongly by corporate interests. The Harper Government is for the further development into genetically modified organisms. The moratorium on GM alfafa is now more than likely toast and the non-GM/organic industry goes with it. Harper has proven hostile to women's groups, slashing their funding. He has slashed government funding of social programs in all kinds of ways as he pours money into the wars against Afghanistan and now Libya. The list could go on and on...
This much Aries (Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Uranus, Black Moon Lilith) in the election chart conjunct Harper's South Node certainly does not bode well for peace.
Aside from the seemingly impossible Conservative majority (I'm not ruling out election fixing, to be honest. This man and Baby Bush are cut from the same cloth), there were other shockers in this election:
The New Democratic Party (leftist/labour) usurped the other establishment party, the Liberals, and is now the Official Opposition.
In a major upset, the leaders of the Liberal and Bloc Quebecois parties didn't even win their seats. Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff is stepping down.
And Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party, became the first ever Green member of Parliament after winning her seat. The Green Party hasn't even been allowed in the televised debates up until now, so this win should change that.
