The discovery I was going to ignore (but the astrological symbolism was too good to pass up)

On November 21, 2007, the final day of the Sun’s annual transit in Scorpio, scientists announced their discovery of a fossilized claw from a super-sized sea scorpion. The sign Scorpio is most commonly symbolized by the scorpion. Scorpio (along with Cancer and Pisces), is part of the water element.

The announcement occurred on a day when Mercury (news) in Scorpio harmonized with Uranus (science, surprises). Scientists knew in prehistoric times these creatures were big, but they didn’t imagine they were eight feet long! The Moon that day was in Aries, a sign ruled by Mars. (Mars also ruled Scorpio before Pluto was discovered in 1930.) Aries Moon harmonized with Jupiter, which rules things that are super-sized.

Jupiter will align with Pluto on December 11. I had anticipated a huge discovery (or discoveries) will be revealed around this time that will alter the “accepted” mindset regarding our place in the universe as well as Earth’s early origins. Scorpions livin’ large almost a half a billion years ago is just too gross to qualify.
