‘GamerGate’ is certainly an interesting turn of events that has boiled over with the astro energies of the last new Virgo moon growing into full Pisces Moon.  Leo Lilith the creative bitch goddess who would not be tamed into submission was conjunct Venus (women) while both were square (friction) Mars bang on Saturn (men) in Scorpio at new moon.

Aries Uranus was exact trine Venus – fire to fire – signaling a head’s up new perspective UPshifts especially in regards to women and – yes, Games – Leo rules !
My interpretation of Virgo new moon (9 days ago) energies here – note Eowyn.
YES.  Good timing, I had.  Excellent choice, I made.

First, I am not a gamer.  The only things in my house that could be considered even remotely game-ish are several shelves of cards ala divination decks, a glow in the dark Ouija, and a RocknRoll Trivia deck.  I am very good at Tetris, and I played Wolfenstein for  about 2 weeks in the early 90’s until I started dreaming of detailed search and destroy massacres in my sleep.
Creepy Dream Hangovers drove playing that game to a screeching halt.

I’ll link the vids  below, as well as this timeline backstory that outlines what lit the fuse, let you fashion your own viewpoint.  After reading several posts about it, the first thing that came to mind was Lara Croft who I have always understood to be a strong smart female protagonist in the gaming world.
She is the only one I could think of immediately.

A rugged archer/archeologist kicking ass raiding tombs appeals to me.
Do we finally have a kick-ass female Time LordExactly.

Creators, can we just make more games featuring smart, strong female leads ?
We do exist.  Seems like a no-brainer to me.

Also note incoming Pisces Full Moon finds us under a very yin sky: Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto Chiron are all placed in introspective, reactive signs.
Worth a thought, yes ?  Note yin is not gender specific, thank you !

Why I Feel Bad For – And Understand – The Angry #GamerGate Gamers

I am no man !

“All your words are but to say: you are a woman, and your part is in the house. But when the men have died in battle and honour, you have leave to be burned in the house, for the men will need it no more. But I am of the House of Eorl and not a serving-woman. I can ride and wield blade, and I do not fear either pain or death.”

“What do you fear, lady?” he [Aragorn] asked.

“A cage,” she said. “To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.”

Leo Venus/Lilith square Scorpio Mars/Saturn

This is an aspect of great inner strength and personal conviction as well as balanced, applied, rock steady effort when expressed high qi.  It is also an aspect of personal power – neither women nor men will want to take the bit, give up the reins.
Find the yin/yang balance within.  Then work outward.

Creativity, regeneration & re-invention of traditional power structures are restless, going head to head forcing inner metamorphosis.
Rise to meet your destiny. 

Overcome your personal challenges re: authority, desires, career, oppression, money, headstrong women, men (particularly older men) by facing your fear and/or each issue one. at. a. time.

Fixed sign squares indicate long held structures in need of WILLpower directed towards positive change.  Personal problematic stagnations are glaringly obvious under this sky.
Diligently work your own change rather than try to honcho someone else’s.

peace

walk like a panther

Again and again in history some people wake up. They have no ground in the crowd and move to broader deeper laws. They carry strange customs with them and demand room for bold and audacious action. The future speaks ruthlessly through them. They change the world.  – Rainer Maria Rilke
:::::::::::::::::::

Leo Venus closes the square to Scorpio Mars – tension as creativity builds.
Venus attracts, balances and seeks peace – she exchanges – her gift for yours.  She has values, demands justice and equality – she is fair.

Your creative destiny is hammered out as Venus also begins to close the square to North Node of Destiny.

Mars competes, challenges and fires off your instincts  ::: you build :::  fixed signs are feeling tense, but yes they are building.  Your Leo and Scorpio houses are hardcore, full-out, laying bricks and foundations just as fast as Pluto tumbles them down in your Capricorn house.

Sun and Mercury are in Libra ::: willpower of mind / analyzation focused on balance ::: is in peace talks with Uranus in Aries ::: sideways risk-taking ::: whadda ride !

All the while the established order of Capricorn is being chewed & spewed – up from the inner core. Everything hidden is revealed: in the light of day, a ray of hope shines in to that deep dark hole.

What and How we Use everything is undergoing daily / hourly metamorphosis – Pluto moves slowly – Uranus is superfast – Sun is coming to express the heart of how and why and what needs to change in order for us TO LIVE.

Sun closes in on Square to Pluto and opposition to Uranus as Moon grows to full.
High-octane instincts are on the prowl – keen to experience the hunt . . .
