Guest article from Dave @ AmorStyleAstrology.com
If you live in Europe, you’re probably well aware of the Yellow Vest movement that started in France and has found support in many of the surrounding states. It has been followed closely by people in the alternative media, but I doubt many astrologers are interested – which probably makes me the exception, particularly when you consider the influence from the Asteroid Pallas.
Because this movement seems to be decentralized in its leadership and because I’ve noticed the transit of Pallas across Europe, I wanted to look to see if there was some correlation linking the activities to the influence that we might expect from Pallas.
To get started, I’ll save you a little time with a few paragraphs from the Wikipedia which states in Origin and nature of the movement section:
A woman from the Seine-et-Marne department started a petition on the change.org website in May 2018 that had reached 300,000 signatures by mid-October and close to a million a month later.Parallel to this petition, two men from the same department launched a Facebook event for 17 November to “block all roads” and thus protest against an increase in fuel prices they considered excessive, stating that this increase was the result of the tax increase. One of the viral videos around this group launched the idea of using yellow jackets.
The movement is organised in a leaderless, horizontal fashion. Informal leaders can emerge, but some have been rejected by other demonstrators and even threatened. According to John Lichfield, some in the movement extend their hatred of politicians even to any “would-be politicians who emerge from their own ranks”. The yellow jacket movement is not associated with a specific political party or trade union and has spread largely by social media.
So, sometime in May of 2018, someone started a petition on the Change.Org website which started this movement. The fact that it’s supported by Change.Org makes me suspicious, but, the rebellion is what it is and I’m pretty sure it will make the history books in one form or another.
After looking around a bit more, I’ve found a similar petition started in Ireland which I’ve cut and copied into the end of this article. That petition seems to be a list of demands that are both radically right and left. I’ve also found a petition started in Canada which has a few issues that are different than what was posted in Ireland. Yet, what the petitions have in common is a deep seeded fight to get out from under political control – a push for freedom by doing what is ‘right’ and what appears to be a push towards individualism.
The push to do what is right
Pallas represents the Athena architype which is an intelligent, cerebral warrior and peaceful general that is able to recognize patterns and link ideas together. She is at home in Libra for she can see both sides of situations with an eye towards what is just. She is not blind justice and expects everyone to claim their personal power.
Now, go review the Yellow Vest petitions (base of original article) and tell me if you see the Pallas influence in their statements. I see it. If you don’t, the rest of this article is not for you.
If what we read in the Wikipedia regarding how this petition started in France, we’ll need to walk back into May of 2017. Here is a map of the position of the planets at the New Moon on May 15th 2017.
What is the first thing that stands out? Uranus is on 0 degrees, 0 minutes Taurus. Uranus is the planet that represents the political right, rebellions and riots. At the same time, Pallas was in Gemini over the central US conjunct Venus. As we all know, Venus brings in a strong diplomatic energy and would be considered complimentary to Pallas.
