Saturns gift to you🕯⌛️(Episode 11)

* •Saturn in the 11th house-(the gift of true communion) 👥 these natives feel Saturn through their interactions with others. Saturn disguises himself as “friendly” connections and the down-traughten. He presents himself as revolutions and movements. He’s the civil rights movements and the orchestrated riots and televised chaos. He shows himself as the choice between alignment or isolation. These individuals often despise social movements and tend to steer clear of them. To most they can seem unsympathetic and at times cold. These individuals in reality just don’t know how to “connect” to the drives of others. They don’t know how to think as a “collective” and tend to mainly live intimately amongst themselves. There’s a tendency to unconsciously isolate oneself and these natives can at times grow too attached to their own solitude in which they forget to relate to those closest to them! Be it family/friends/lovers and otherwise. Saturn brings in the trial of “integration” to those natives. In most cases these natives are usually surrounded by other people! Many tend to gravitate and love these natives and their wisdom! Their calm and structure and their seemingly aloof and disengaged manner. But this nature draws others in closely to these natives. These natives are constantly tested through friendships and through groups and often must learn to balance isolation and population mentality.

Reward: these natives tend to receive the reward of genuine companionship. During the early years it can be hard for these natives to connect and integrate with others on an intimate or even long lasting level at that. And even though these natives grow as they age one thing that sticks with this position for Saturn is their isolation tendency. They just don’t like to “belong” and will always seek a freedom from those around them. That being said Saturn gifts them the ability of compassion and the ability to sympathize with the pain and will of those around them. These individuals being to understand the cry’s and the endless shouts of anger. The grow to understand the loud and immeasurable solace of community and the love involved in such unions. These natives basically become extremely sensitive and receptive to those around them but also become very keen and harsh to those that waste their time. Their not the types to cling to friendships and don’t easily let others in. They grow to become loners and tend to enjoy their own company more than that of others no matter how old they are. They truly value a small pack and they want only the most honest and authentic of bonds.(George Clooney/Donald trump/Cameron Diaz/Natalie Portman/robin Williams/Halle berry) oddly enough most of these people are singletons be it in real life or the characters they play. George Clooney often stars as the loner archetype and tends to be in more somber and grey area movies that solely focus on the isolation of the main character. Halle berry tends to be the sole reliant factor in her movies especially in movies like the call where she can only rely on herself solely to rescue the victim. Donald trump whom is hated by all and has a very small window of support and often times is isolated-with his own wife living in New York not amongst him in the White House. There is a pronounced self reliance here and a me against the world undertone

William Terrill Bradby, Native American Scout And Gunboat Pilot During The Civil War For The Union Army

William Terrill Bradby, a Pamunkey Indian, served both on land and sea for the Union. During the Peninsular Campaign, he served as a scout for the Army of the Potomac. In 1863 he was transferred to duty on the James River, serving as a pilot there and later in the North Atlantic Blocking Squadron. He served on the gunboat Pilot, The Tugboat Epsilon, Charter Steamer Daylight and Torpedo Boat Spuyten Duyvil.

“The Pamunkey man William Terrill Bradby, in traditional dress and holding a club, sits for a portrait by the photographer De Lancey W. Gill in October 1899. Gill (1859–1940) was a prolific photographer for the Smithsonian Institution’s Bureau of American Ethnology from 1898 until 1930 and specialized in making images of American Indians.”

We can have good jobs and healthy communities

Our families and children deserve clean air and water and we must do all that we can to stop allowing corporations to corrupt our livelihood unchecked. Where possible, we must choose clean alternative options so that our economy and our families can thrive. It is not a one or the other choice. We can have good jobs and healthy communities by shifting away from an economy dependent on fossil fuels to one that creates jobs for workers through a just transition to a clean energy economy.

We can and must be the change we want to see in the world and we have the chance to do it right now. In North and South Dakota, construction of a crude-oil pipeline, known as the Dakota Access Pipeline, threatens the lives and livelihoods of the people of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The pipeline would pass under the Missouri River (at Lake Oahe) which is just half a mile upstream from the boundary of the Standing Rock Sioux’s reservation and provides their drinking water.

Over the last three years there have been over 200 known pipeline leaks in the United States. A spill at this site would be a health, economic and cultural catastrophe for Standing Rock Sioux families. Further, the pipeline would pass through incredibly precious culturally significant sacred lands, like burial grounds, for the tribe and infringe on their freedom to practice and protect their culture and beliefs.

We are so proud that our union, the Service Employees International Union, along with other labor unions, didn’t stand idly by and let this injustice prevail. Instead SEIU along with like-minded good jobs and justice-focused partners have stood strong with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.

Not only do the Standing Rock Sioux deserve the respect and protection of their sacred grounds, but they deserve to know the water they are drinking is uncontaminated and safe. This is yet another instance where a low income, community of color is subjected to contamination at the hands of powerful corporations and an unresponsive government.

“…it is my painfull duty to report that day before yesterday the twenty fifth inst a great disaster overtook Gen Custer + The troops under his Command…”

First Report of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, From Gen. Alfred H. Terry, Montana, to Assistant Adjutant General R.C. Drum, Chicago, 6/27/1876

Series: “Special File” of Letters Received, 1863 - 1885Record Group 393: Records of U.S. Army Continental Commands, 1817 - 1947.

Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer and nearly half the soldiers under his command in the 7th Cavalry were wiped out by combined Cheyenne, Lakota and Arapaho forces during the Battle of Little Bighorn, also known as the Battle of the Greasy Grass, and Custer’s Last Stand, on June 25-26, 1876.

Two days after the battle, General Terry, Custer’s commanding officer, confirmed the death of Custer and more than 250 of his men. Gathered from the reports of officers who were entrenched in a defensive position on the bluffs overlooking the valley and from the trail of bodies Terry himself encountered on June 27, he sketched the movements of Custer and his men from June 22 through June 25. A civilian scout carried Terry’s report to Fort Ellis, the nearest telegraph office, where it was relayed first to Chicago, then to Army headquarters in Washington, DC. There was a break in the telegraph line between Fort Ellis and Chicago causing a delay in service, and so, the highest officials in the U.S. Army in Philadelphia attending the grand Centennial Exposition, learned about Custer’s fate – not from this report – but from a July 6 newspaper story.

Josh Hutcherson Wants Tattoos "Covering Every Inch of My Body"

Josh Hutcherson is hooked on ink. The hunky Hunger Games star, 21, is already tattooed with the libra astrological sign on his wrist, an anchor on his left side and a nautical scene between his shoulder blades, but if the mega-star had his way, he’d get inked in many more visible places. “If I weren’t an actor, I would have tattoos covering every inch of my body,” Hutcherson told Us Weekly of his love for body art.

First getting inked at age 17 – with his mom’s consent – the actor is forced to spend an extra 90 minutes in the makeup chair getting his dye covered up for Peeta Mellark’s shirtless scenes in The Hunger Games film franchise.

Keeping his hot bod in shape by playing basketball five days a week in a variety of leagues, the Union, Ky., native is no stranger to having his chiseled physique eyed by female costars and fans, but the one woman he has eyes for actress Claudia Traisac, whom he met while filming the upcoming thriller Paradise Lost.

“I’m a hopeless romantic! Hutcherson explains. "But I’m not one to have my feelings and then not do anything about it. I always seem to find a way to show how I feel. I can be quiet and reserved with my friends, but when I need to, I can be big and entertaining.”
